Full text of "American ancestry : giving name and descent, in the male line, of Americans whose ancestors settled in the United States previous to the Declaration of Independence, A. D. 1776"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other

any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

AMERICAN ANCESTRY. 



THE purpose of this work is, principally, to register in a convenient and simple form 
the pedigree of any one person, and thus record for all time many important facts in 
the history of families which would otherwise be lost. Another primaiy object is to publish 
here the ancestry of a person as complete as it is known, as a means of obtaining additional 
information regarding it. It is also designed to be a convenient work of reference, to show 
the origin of the various American families. However indifferent some may affect to be 
regarding this question of ancestry, those who have a good pedigree will usually have a 
natural pride for it. Many lineages must of necessity contain nothing but simple records 
of uneventful generations, but they will preserve facts of great interest to descendants which 
would otherwise in many cases be lost in the history of a family. The plan of the work is 
somewhat similar in idea to the well known English works, but altered to suit the conditions 
of American society, and in detail is as follows : 

The surname or family name is given first, with the given name, residence, birth place, 
and date of birth. This is followed by remarks of a brief biographical character, giving the 
principal events in the individual's life, such as occupation, college degrees if any, author- 
ship, public service, experiences, and if married, date, wife's name and parentage, with 
remarks relating to her ancestty. If the individual whose lineage is given had brothers, the 
same facts may be stated respecting each of them, in order of their birth, commencing with 
the eldest. This completes the first generation in tracing back the lineage. Next is given 
the father's name, followed by same class of facts, and so continued back in male line as far 
as can be traced. The name of son, father, grandfather, etc., in direct male line are printed 
in black type. As the abbreviations are all of the most ordinary kind, it is unnecessary to 
mention them here.

to trace the descent with certainty.

(See pp. 17-18). This family of Leaches is 
said to have descended from John De 
Leche, surgeon to King Edward III of 
England. The coat of arms has upon it 
three crowns, the significance of which is, 
that upon one occasion while the kings of 
France and Scotland were prisoners of 
King Edward, the three kings dined at the 
house of the surgeon, and as a token of 
the incident, Edward handed Leche three 
crowns. Afterward, when the king granted 
him a large landed estate, the three crowns 
were placed on his arms. The name is 
sometimes spelled Leiche.
