According to family records, I am a descendant of Joseph Bastedo who lived on Staten Island among the Huguenot and Dutch community. He married Judith Rycke. They in turn moved from Staten Island to where I do not know. His grandson William was born in South Brunswick, NJ and is buried in the Kingston Presbyterian Church cemetary in Kingston, NJ. His son William married Catherine Stewart, they had three children, son Nelson married Gertrude Suydam. My father, Henry Bastedo is their son, who was born in Brooklyn, NY. Where did the original Joseph Bastedo move to from Staten Island? To New Jersey? According to records I received from the Staten Island Historical Society Joseph was 49 in the 1706 census. He had six children, Louys, Rosanna, Joseph, Jan, Maria, Pieter. Can anyone share with me their Bastedo family history? You can e-mail me at
