The Goelets are descended from a family of Huguenots from La Rochelle in France, who escaped to Amsterdam. Francois Goelet, a widower with a ten-year-old son, Jacobus, arrived in New York in 1676. Returning to Amsterdam on business, he left the boy in the care of Frederick Philipse, but was apparently lost at sea. His son, John G. Goelet, married Jannetie Cannon, daughter of merchant Jan Cannon.
