Notes for Henrich Schenck Van Nydeck:
...during the Middle Ages, appears the mail-clad knight whose good sword had won and maintained for him his estats and from whom sprang the ancient and noble family of the Schencks, Barons van Toutenburg, in the person of Colve de Witte, Baron van Toutenburg, who was killed at the battle of Clodius against the Dane in 878.
The records of the various successors to this ancient title and barony are imperfect, but sufficient of them have escaped the destructions of the wars of the middle and succeeding ages, to espablish the fact that the same Schenck family held possession down to and even much later than the year 1234 when one of its cadets became the first of the family of Schenck van Nydeck.
