Cornelius was the son of Joachim Andrieszen, who was originally from Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, the Netherlands, and his wife, Emmetje Jans Andrieszen.

He was baptized on Sep. 26, 1670 at the New York City Dutch Church.

He married Annetje Opdyck in 1690 in Hopewell Twp. They had eight children: Eliakim in 1690, John, Abraham, Cornelius in 1698, Rebecca in 1700, Bartholomew in 1706, Andrew about 1710 and Fransinah about 1714. The birthyears of the other two are unknown.

Cornelius had a mill near a school-house and was a tax-collector in Hopewell Twp. He was also one of the founders of the First Presbyterian Church in Ewing Twp., Mercer Co.

He died intestate, and letters of administration regarding his estate were filed in Hunterdon Co. on May 25, 1724. (Mercer Co. was carved from Hunterdon Co. in 1838.)

It is assumed, but not confirmed, that Cornelius was buried in First Presbyterian Church of Ewing Cemetery. He was a trustee of the church, and lived nearby for the rest of his life.Born ca 1679
