    Notes 
    • Many sources record William DeHart born in 1550 as the elder of this family. If so, it would seem an additional generation should be present between William and these children born between 1630 and 1644. Some genealogies show William married to Catlyntje Daniels, and a second a wife named Elizabeth. William DeHart used the title Prince William of Burgandy, France. (Source: Lucile Long DeHart, September 28, 1997, from internet)

      Symon Jacobus deHardt is the elder of another branch of the DeHart family that settled in New Amsterdam in the 17th century. Many genealogies name Symon's father as Prince William DeHart and mother unknown. Symon's branch of the DeHart family is included in this database for reference. Refer to the index for Symon Jacobus DeHart born either 1578 or 1583.

      The DeHarts in America sprang from the same source: Holland and France. Being Huguenots, protesting the Catholic church, they were expelled from the homeland, some going to other European countries and many to America.

      Research into the DeHart Family was instigated by Mrs. Robert M. Libke of Sparta, Wisconsin about 1971 and records secured through the CENTRAL BUREAU VOOR GENEALOGIE, Gravenhage, Holland, verified the accuracy of the lineage. Prior to 1936, the Historian, Andrew J. DeHart, had traced the family through Virginia, South Carolina, back to New York and finally back to Holland. This is his account:
      "The first of the generation according to that record was named Balthaser Giraratt, (sometimes called Gerard), which name was changed about the time of the reign of Phillip of Spain. The record is not plain why the name was changed. It is possible that it was because he was accused of murder of William of Orange. Later, a descendant of the family married a noble French lady. The same lady instigated the displeasure of the King by renouncing the Catholic faith to become a Protestant. An order was made by the King expelling her from France. Her husband took her to Holland. They were then mentioned by the name of d'Hardt. In Holland they settled at a place on the Zuyder Zee called Hardt, possibly named for William D'Hardt, one of the French DeHarts. Later, the Dutch way of writing the name was de Haardt. Another way was the Dutch words meaning DeHart were Veen Vos. After reaching America they seem to use these forms by translators from Dutch to English, viz: D'Hart, de Haardt, de Heart, de Hardte. The early Americans wrote it: deHart, deHarte, DeHart, and Hart. Now, it seems to be always DeHart. It is almost proven that those who have lived here for more than 200 years were descendants of William, whose family was expelled from France and settled in Holland before coming here mostly with the New Amsterdam Dutch in 1656. The DeHarts who were the progenitors of so many prominent families were: Balthazer, Daniel, Matthias, and Symon Jacobus deHardt". (Source: History of the DeHart Family, Eunice B. Kirkman, from internet)

      Comment on the above exerpt: Balthazar, Daniel and Matthias were brothers. Their relationship to Symon Jacobus deHardt is unknown.
