The Oak Tree by Thomas Bewick

The Arnwines of Hunterdon County begin with the immigrant, Jacob Arnwine and his son John Arnwine, who immigrated from Holland. For more on this family, see “Bridge To The Past,” a four-volume family history, written about 1989, by Aimee Berniece Wilson, which includes “The Arnwine History” by Rev. K.E. Irvin.

Keep in mind that I list the children of daughters, but not their grandchildren. And additions and corrections are welcome. Please add them to the Comments section below.

First Generation:

(1) Jacob Arnwine (c.1710 – after 1767)
Jacob Arnwine’s spouse is not known. In 1767 he went into debt and his property was sold at a sheriff’s sale. I do not know what happened to him after that.

Second Generation:

|     (2) John Arnwine Sr. (c.1735 – 1819) & Elizabeth Opdycke (1738 – 1837)
Elizabeth Opdycke was the daughter of John Opdycke and Margaret Green. It was John Opdycke who purchased Jacob Arnwine’s farm of 119.75 acres at the Sheriff’s sale of Arnwine’s property.
The next four children left Amwell Township. I have no further information on them.
