From the Wikipedia article on Huguenots: “French Protestants were inspired by the writings of John Calvin in the 1530s, and they were called Huguenots by the end of the 16th century. By the end of the 17th century and into the 18th century, roughly 500,000 Huguenots had fled France during a series of religious persecutions.” ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huguenot).
It doesn't appear that Hendrick Schoonmaker immigrated due to religious persecution. In the Abraham Hasbrouck Diary written by the grandson of Hendrick Schoonmaker, he reports that “Hendrick Jochemsz Schoonmaker was a native of Hamburg, a Hanse town in Germany and was one of the first settlers or planters in this country. He entered the Dutch service and came to America in the Dutch time or Dutch government of New Netherlands.” Although, not absolutely conclusive a later inquiry into the Hamburg records elicted the response that this man was probably the Hein Schomaker who was baptized in 1624, a son of Jochim Schomaker (Heidgerd, Ruth: The Schoonmaker Family: Descendants of Hendrick Jochemsz Schoonmaker, 1624-1683, Part I, Huguenot Historical Society, New Paltz, NY, 1974).
Hendrick had 6 children, Jochem (about 1655) being the oldest, then Egbert (1658), Engeltje (1663), Volckerte (1665), Hendrick Hendrick (1665-1712) and Hillitje (1669). Jochem's daughter Tryntje married Jacobus Bruyn and he left in his will a total of over 100000 acres of land, plus several lots in Newburgh and 1 in New York City- in addition to other bequests of land and goods! His son Frederick inherited a lot of land, and did very well for himself until he donated an estimated $50-60000 to the Revolutionary War cause, including a good part of the cost of the chain across the Hudson (Heidgerd, Ruth: The Schoonmaker Family: Descendants of Hendrick Jochemsz Schoonmaker, 1624-1683, Part I, Huguenot Historical Society, New Paltz, NY, 1974). He built a stone house in the Stone Ridge area around 1760 and that stands today as Captain Schoonmaker's Bed and Breakfast (http://www.captainschoonmakers.com/history.html).
