The Quick family of Long Island

Descendants of Theunis Thomazen Quick

    Theunis Quick (abt 1600) came to America from Holland in 1640, with his wife and two children.  He is the founder of the Quick family in America.  He took the oath of allegiance October 22-26,1664.  He worked as a mason and had a hand in the construction of the Old Trinity Church in Manhatten.  He owned various tracts of land by grants from the Government, including  the site of the present Produce Exchange Building in New York City.  He  lived at that location on what is now Whitehall St.
    Thomas Quick (April 24, 1644) was a farmer and one of the earliest Dutch settlers in Ulster Co. He was the holder of vast amounts of land. In 1686, he was a trooper in Capt. Henry Beekman's company in Kingston,N.Y. He took the oath of allegiance in Ulster Co,N.Y. on Sept. 1st 1689. He was killed by a band of renegade Indians. His son Theunis Theunisen Quick (April 18, 1675)  recieved a patent of land in the Minisink region in 1696.  He was called the "Indian Slayer". He spent his life avenging (allegedly 100 times over) his father's death at the hands of renegade Indians.
