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.

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 primary 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, birthplace, 
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 ancestry. 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 nanu of son, father, grandfather, etc., in direct male line are printed 
in black t3rpe. As the abbreviations are all of the most ordinary kind, it is unnecessary to 
mention them here.

business in Tiverton as late as 1830, and 
a sister Jane, who married a Mr. Mortimer.

ters, or sawyers, and were both employed 
by Jonas Wright, who about that time com- 
menced building for the United States 
navy the 24-gun war frigate ** Connecticut," 
which was launched Thursday afternoon, 
June 6, 1799, and when ready for sea was 
placed in command ot Capt. Moses Tryon 
and ordered to the West Indies in company 
with other armed vessels, to protect our 
merchantmen from the depredations of 
English and French privateers. During 
her cruise she captured three French 
vessels, the **Piege," with 50 men, the 
** Unite," with 50 men, and the ** Choo 
Chou." She was sold by the government 
in 1801, with 28 other gun-boats, to reduce 
the expenses of the navy. Mr. Wright's 
ship-yard was at Chatham (now Portland), 
on east side of Connecticut river, opposite 
Middletown, and was known as East Mid- 
dletown until Oct., 1767, when it was made 
into a distinct town and called ** Chatham " 
from the importance of its ship-building, 
in allusion to Chatham, a town in England,

noted for its extensive system of dock- 
yards and facilities for ship-building. The 
name of Chatham has since been changed 
to ** Portland " for its extensive free-stone 
quarries; this name is derived from an 
English town celebrated for its excellent 
building stone and the well-known Port- 
land cement. WlUiam Estabrook m. Sarah,

others from that section of Eng. sailed in 
the company of the Rev. John Davenport, 
Gov. Theophilus Eaton, Dep. Gov. Stephen 
Goodyear and other persons from London 
and Hertfordshire who came to this coun- 
try in the ships ** Hector " and '* Martin *X^ 
in 1637; it is probable he came direct from 
England to New Haven in one of the three 
ships which sailed in 1639 to New Haven, 
viz., the *'St. Johns," Capt. Russell, the 
"Fair Weather," which reached New 
Haven before July 28, 1639, and the third 
ship (name unknown) which arrived soon 
after, probably bringing the company which 
settled in Southold, Long Island. (See 
Atwater's History of New Haven Colony, 
pages 162-3.) From the amount of prop- 
erty (pi's 13 3J. 9^.) left by him at his death 
in 1684 (the inventory was taken Dec., 1684), 
it is probable that he belonged to a family 
of some wealth in England. It has been 
suggested that he may have been one of 
the Smiths of Haddon Hall, some of whom 
came to this country, he married, 1642, 
Grace Hawley (d. 1690), she is said to have 
been a sister of Joseph Hawley of Stratford.

the War of 1812 he raised a company, was 
elected their captain, and was stationed at 
Sandy Hook in expectation of the landing 
of the British forces, afterward he was 
commissioned colonel in the State militia, 
was greatly interested in the public works 
of N. J., and was recognized as a prime 
mover in the organization and completion 
of the Delaware and Raritan canal, and 
together with Commodore Robert F. 
Stockton and the Stevenses made the cele- 
brated compact at Burton's theater, New 
York, uniting the canal company with the 
Camden and Amboy Railroad Co. 1832, 
which resulted in the powerful company 
that built and managed for many yrs. the 
railroads and water-ways of the *' joint 
companies " of New Jersey, of which he 
was a member of the executive committee 
until his death 1862, and was also treas- 
urer of the canal co. till 1852, soon he 
perceived that the commercial importance 
of New Brunswick could not survive the 
construction of railroads and canals, and 
failing to interest others, he, with Commo-

New Brunswick Manufacturing Co., was

ary war was in partnership with his uncle, 
James Neilson, in the shipping business at 
New Brunswick, their vessels trading with 
Belfast, Lisbon, Madeira and the West 
India islands, James Neilson, then a man 
of 75 yrs. of age, was a member of the 
Committee of Correspondence, and of- 
ficially received and dispatched the mes- 
senger who brought the news of the battle 
of Lexington, his nephew, John, in a 
stirring speech, the notes of which remain, 
roused his fellow citizens and raised a 
company of militia, of which he was ap- 
pointed captain, and was soon called into 
service at the east end of Long Island 
under command of Gen. Heard, for the 
purpose of disarming the Tories there, and 
on Aug. 31, 1775, was appointed colonel 
of the battalion of minute men in the 
county of Middlesex, and was commis- 
sioned by the Provincial Congress of N. J., 
his commission being signed by Hendrick 
Fisher, president; such was the public ap- 
preciation of Col. Neilson's ability and 
patriotism that he was urged early in 1776 
to take a seat in the Continental Congress 
of that year, which was to consider the 



declaration of independence, but he de- 
clined the honor; a copy of the declaration 
was sent him by Congress, as the man 
whose patriotism and influence would be 
most likely to secure it a favorable recep- 
tion in his part of the State; a meeting 
which comprised a large portion of the in- 
habitants of the neighborhood was held 
on the public streets of New Bruns- 
wick to hear it read by Col. Neilson, 
and a violent opposition was appre- 
hended, but it was so favorably received 
that its opponents did not dare to avow 
themselves, he was appointed colonel of 
the 2d regt., Middlesex militia, Aug. i. 
1776, and in Sep. and Oct. of the same yr. 
commanded the Middlesex militia on the 
lines in Essex and Bergen counties; in 
Dec. he retired with the army under Wash- 
ington to the west bank of the Delaware, 
and on Dec. 31, 1776, Gen. Washington 
issued an order directing Col. Neilson, 
with Col. Frelinghuysen, Lieut. -Col. Tay- 
lor and Major Van Emburgh to proceed 
into N. J. and use their exertions to call 
together and embody the militia of the 
State; in acknowledgment of his services 
he was appointed brig.-gen. of militia Feb. 
21, 1777, during the winter of 1777 the 
British troops were in winter quarters in 
New Brunswick, Lord Howe making Col. 
Neilson's house, which is still in the pos- 
session of his gr. -children, his head- 
quarters, a vigorous old sycamore tree 
now some 4 ft. in diameter was used as his 
lordship's flag-staflfand is still standing in 
front of the house; during the months of 
Sep., Oct. and Nov., 1777, he was in ser- 
vice on the lines at Elizabethtown with the 
militia of Middlesex and Somerset coun- 
ties; in June and July, 1778, he served in 
Monmouth county, being part of the time 
under command of Gen. Dickinson and 
part holding a separate command; on Nov. 
6, 1778, Col. Neilson was chosen by the 
Assembly and Council of the State of N. 
J. a delegate to the Continental Congress, 
together with Witherspoon, Scudder, Fre- 
linghuysen and Fell, but did not take his 
seat; in Jan. and Feb. of the same yr. he 
served as a delegate from N. J., together

man, to meet delegates from the Middle 
and Eastern States at New Haven, on the 
recommendations of Congress, to devise 
if possible some means of arresting the 
alarming depreciation of the currency; 
during the spring and summer of 1779 he 
commanded the militia on the lines at 
Eliaabethtown and Newark, and on Sep. 
20, 1780, he was appointed deputy qu.- 
master-general; he continued in this posi- 
tion until the close of the war; on June 
18, 1782, he was appointed with W. Hous- 
ton and James Ewing commissioner to 
settle the remaining account of deprecia- 
tion in the money value of their pay with 
the N. J. line; Col. Neilson enjoyed the 
confidence and friendship of Washington, 
who never passed through New Brunswick 
after the war without calling on him; while 
the British occupied New Brunswick Mrs. 
Neilson was at Morristown with the Amer- 
ican army, and when at the table her seat 
was always between Gen. and Mrs. Wash- 
ington; Lafayette, in evidence of his es- 
teem and friendship, presented him with a 
sword, and during his visit to America in 
1824 called upon him and evinced the 
warmest pleasure at meeting him again. 
Pickering, in a business letter to Col. 
Neilson, Jan. 12, 1783, says: '* I have been 
perfectly happy in your assistance while in 
office, and shall think myself honoured by 
a continuation of your friendship and es- 
teem which our connection in the public 
service has given rise to." Lewis Cass, 
writing to Garret D. Wall, Esq., in 1833, 
says, referring to Col. Neilson, " Of his 
high character and valuable services there 
is and can be no doubt. He is identified 
with the history of his country." Many 
attempts were made by the enemy to seize 
his person, but without success. At the 
close of the war he succeeded to the prop- 
erty and shipping business of his gt. -uncle, 
James Neilson, b. in Ireland 1700, d. in N. 
Brunswick 1783, by whom he had been 
adopted, who was one of the first chaner 
members of New Brunswick, N. J., com- 
ing there eariy in the i8th century from 
Belfast, and became presiding judge of 
the Court of Common Pleas and a large 
land-owner. Col. Neilson was appointed

constitutional convention 1787, which 
framed the Constitution of the U. S., to- 
gether with Gov. Livingston, William 
Paterson, afterward justice of the U. S. 
Supreme Court, David Brearley, Jonathan 
Dayton, Wm. C. Houston and Abraham 
Clark, but did not take his seat, was also a 
delegate from Middlesex county to the 
New Jersey State convention called to con- 
sider the adoption of the Constitution of 
the United States, and was the last sur- 
vivor of the 40 members of that conven- 
tion. In 1 790-1 he was appointed by act 
of the Legislature one of the commission- 
ers to build bridges over the Hackensack, 
Passaic and Raritan rivers with John Bay- 
ard, Andrew Kirkpatrick, Dr. Lewis Dun- 
ham and Jacob R. Hardenbergh. In 
1800-1 he served as a member of the As- 
sembly. Throughout his life he was an 
active and devout member of the Presby- 
terian church of New Brunswick, also an 
elder and a trustee. He remained clerk of 
the session 50 yrs., which position, to- 
gether with that of president of the bd. of 
trustees, he held to the end of his life. 
Was president of the board of trustees of 
Rutgers Coll. His death, which occurred 
Mar. 3, 1833, in his 88th yr., was regarded 
as a public loss, business was suspended 
on the occasion of the funeral and the 
Common Council adopted resolutions re- 
ferring to his public services and his vir- 
tues as a man (m. Dec 31, 1768, Catharine,
