Biographical history

Philip Derick was born in Seeg (Leey), High Germany (present-day Austria) in 1749 to Coonradt and Elisabeth Derck. He immigrated to the United States with his family. He served with Captain Hendrick Reuter (a.k.a. Henry Ruiter) during the American War of Independence and was stationed in St. John’s, Quebec. In 1784, he received a Loyalist compensation for losses incurred during the war, permitting him to settle in Caldwell’s Manor, the Seigneury of Foucault. This not being a land grant, Philip and his successors were obliged to pay seigneurial rent for many years. He married Maria Brust (a.k.a. Mary Broost) in Brunswick Centre, New York in 1773. Together they had eleven children: Condrade (b. 1774), Philip II or Jr. (b. 1776), Catharina (b. 1777), Anna/Hannah (b. 1780?), Elizabeth (b. 1782), Jacob (b. 1784), Frederick (b. 1787), John Philip (b. 1789), Anthony (b. 1792), Maria, and William (b. 1795). Philip died on 3 August 1825 in Noyan, Quebec.
