Maria Van Beverhoudt Family Bible
New Testament and Psalms in Dutch; Amsterdam, A. Haselbroek, I. van der
Putte, I. van Heekeren, 1723.

Contains part of the records of the children of Maria Van Beverhoudt and her
husband, James Barclay; the existing record begins in the middle of the
notice of their first son and it is probable that there was an earlier leaf of
records which is now lost.  The Testament passed to Mrs. Maria Van B.
Barclay's nephew, Andrew Barclay Bache, and it has descended directly from
him to his great-granddaughter, Miss Charlotte Elizabeth Dudley, of Brooklyn,
N. Y., who is the present owner.
