PREFACE. 

The facts assembled in this small volume were gathered in part 
from publications which are not named because they are accessible to 
any searcher. Whenever these books seemed of doubtful accuracy 
or did not exist, the original town records were searched for vital 
statistics, land entries, settlements of estates and court proceedings. 
In several instances the records had been burned. 

The alphabetical arrangement of families used with the two charts 
renders an index superfluous to those for whom the book is printed. 

Few abbreviations occur : 
abt. is about. 

b. , bp. , m. , d. , are birth, baptism, marriage and death, 
dau. is daughter, 
per. is perhaps, 
prob. is probably, 
unm. is unmarried. 

It was at first intended to include a biographical sketch of each 
male head of a family of the descendants of Williams Howe Whitte- 
more and Ebenezer Clark, but for several reasons it was concluded to 
omit all. * 

I suggest that every copy be given to the nearest public library 

rather than destroyed.

Note — It is probable that two generations preceded Hannah Emerson in this 
country, although destruction of records prohibits proofs. In the original vital sta- 
tistic record in Newbury in which her marriage appears, she is plainly called Hannah. 
Coffin's History of Newbury copied it Hannah about 1829, and in 1845 called it Mary 
(perhaps thinking of the elder Wolcott's wife), and Savage followed and called her 
Mary, adding "Coffin tells no more."

He was the only original proprietor who actually settled there. 

His will of April 20, 1760, probated Stafford Springs, date un- 
known, names "deceased son James ": "grandson Tim Loomis, son of 
daughter Hannah Loomis": " daughter Sarah Loomis and her sons ",

Joseph and daughter Sarah Loomis, Executors. No inventory appears. 



*Note— That Stiles, Windsor, 2-242 marries James (3) Eno wrongly is proved by 
original Vital Record of Windsor which says he m. " Hannah Phelps widow " and by 
the following: Windsor Land Records, Book 3, page 159, 9 Jan. 1712-13. "John 
Birge, James Eno in the right of his " my " wife Hannah, and Mary Birge to " our " 
brother Jeremiah Birge all of Windsor, Conn.— all our right and title to home lot and 
buildings thereon, in Windsor, which was our uncle Samuel Watson's late of Windsor 
dec' — and which was distributed to us, in part, out of the said estate. Witness

b. England, 

d. Rehoboth, Mass., Feb. 14, 1676. 



He probably came from Southampton, Eng., in the "Bevis" in 
1638 to Salem, Mass. He had land rights or bought land in Rehoboth 
in 1645 of the value of £150, but remained in Salem where he was a 
bricklayer until about 1668, when Rehoboth was settled. He had much 
personal property and land in Rehoboth, Attleboro, Seekonk and on 
the Pawtucket river. 

He paid a tax of £4}^ for the expense of King Phillip's War in 
1676. He was the first and only bricklayer in New England for many 
years. In 1676 Rehoboth was burned by the Indians, and Robert 
Fuller lost his wife and two sons and his home, and then returned 
to Salem.

Note— All of Ebenezer Howe's children, except Ebenezer, disappear from the 
Mass. records about 1753, and in Mansfield, Ashford and Willington, Ct., appear 
Samuel, Sarah, Charles, Benjamin and Nehemiah. That Samuel, Benjamin and 
Sarah were brothers and sister is proven by a diary of Doctor Samuel's daughter, 
Lucinda (Howe) Storrs, 1776-1780 and 1812 to her death at 81 in 1839, which I found 
after a search in N. Y., Ct., W. Va. and Vt., and induced the owner. Miss Harriet 
Waterman Storrs, now Mrs. Joseph Busby of Brooklyn, N. Y., ;to deposit in the 
Connecticut Historical Society Library. Rev. Eleazer Williams, 1688-1742, who in 
1710 was ordained the first minister in Mansfield, was father of Mary, wife of Rev. 
Richard Salter, who was an aunt of Lucinda (Howe) Storrs and of her brother 
Williams Howe, who d. 1776. This doubtless accounts for the names of Rev. Williams 
Howe Whittemore and of his son.

" In 1671 the selectmen issued a warrant to summon Timothy Wales

their education and improvement of their time. In 1672 he appeared 
without his sons, and his answers were offensive and contemptuous. 
Shortly after, on summons, he appeared with the boys who were found 
very ignorant, not being able to read. Mr. Wales made some acknowl- 
ment. " 

He is said to have been very pious and eccentric.

Note— As for the mother of Dea. Nathaniel Wales' children: Savage says it was 
Isabel who died in Boston fourteen days after Nathaniel. Pope says Nathaniel was 
received into the church in Boston Mch. 3, 1651, with his wife, Susan, and that she 
was a daughter of John Greenaway of Dorchester who came in 1629-30, because he 
deeded lands in 1651-2 "to his daughter, Susanna Wales, and children if she have 
any." The N. Eng. Hist, and Gen. Reg., 11-37, and 32-321, and Pope's Pioneers, 
page 474, increase the difficulty.

WHITTEMORE. 

Earlier than the year 1300 we find the first recorded name i. e. 
John, Lord of Whytemere, having his domicile at Whytemere on the 
northeast side of the parish of Bobbington in the manor Claverly in 
Shropshire County, England. At the present time the same locality 
bears the name of Whittemore. It is recorded by two historians that 
Whittemore Hall was the place of the origin of the Whittemore family. 
The Anglo Saxon of the word Whytemere is ' white meadow ' or ' lake, ' 
and the first John, Lord of Whytemere, derived the name of the family 
from the place where they originally resided."

Losing his mother at two years of age, he was cared for by his 
Aunt Roxanna at his grandfather Wales' until he was six, when he and 
his sister, Julia Ann, went to Belchertown, Mass., to live with Timothy 
Pearl, who had no children. He was there educated at the district 
school. When about 18 years old, during a remarkable revival of 
religion, he became converted. He was advised to study for the minis- 
try. Mr. and Mrs. Pearl and others assisted him to prepare for col- 
lege under his pastor and the Rev. Philo Judson (Y. C. 1809) of Ash- 
ford, Ct. He then taught the district school in Belchertown and 
attended the High School. He entered the class of 1825 in Yale College 
in the Sophomore year, and during the course taught in Washington 
and New Haven. After graduation he entered the Theological Semi- 
nary until the spring, when he taught classics in the High School in 
Newark, N. J., for a year, and then returned to the seminary. In 
1828 he was licensed to preach and did so often during his last year 
at the seminary. May 1, 1829, he took temporary charge of the Pres- 
byterian Church in Rye, N. Y. , where he stayed three years where he 
married Maria the second daughter of Ebenezer and Ann (Marselis) 
Clark, by whom he had three sons and one daughter, all of whom, 
with eight grandsons and five granddaughters, were living at the time 
of his death. In the spring of 1832 he left Rye, and in the autumn 
took a church in Abington, Ct. In Aug., 1833, he was installed in 
Charlton, Mass., remaining until the spring of 1836. In the autumn 
he became pastor of the church in Southbury, Ct., where he remained 
until the autumn of 1850. Then until the autumn of 1851 he preached 
in Prospect, Ct. In Sept., 1851, he moved to New Haven, Ct, where 
he occupied himself with teaching two or three years, preaching con- 
stantly in various places, and from the spring of 1864 until Sept., 1865, 
acting as agent of the National Freedmen's Relief Association. In 
May, 1868, he went to Brooklyn, N. Y., to live with his daughter. 
From 1870 he was a member of the Church of the Pilgrims. Although 
more than 85 years old when he died he preserved to the last much 
physical and mental vigor. The last twenty years of his life were 
largely devoted to helping the poor and to literary pursuits, his interest 
in everything relating to the advancement of his fellow men remain- 
ing keen to the end.

He removed in early manhood to New York, where the New York 
City directories of 1798 and 1802 call him "Coachmaker 202 Broad- 
way"; of 1810 "Upper part of Broadway"; 1816, 1818, 1820 "Broad- 
way North of Bleecker. " He removed to Rye, May 10, 1821, where 
he built a house in 1836 opposite the Presbyterian Church. 

His nuncupative will of 1847 was probated New York City. 

"Died, at Rye, N. Y., Ebenezer Clark, aged 78 years, 8 months. 
Mr. Clark was made a subject of saving grace in this city about the 
year 1815, chiefly, as is supposed, under the faithful ministrations of 
Dr. McMurray. He united with the Franklin Street Dutch church, of 



94 

which he was repeatedly solicited to become a ruling elder. In the 
year 1815 he took up his abode in Rye. Finding the cause of religion 
there in a very depressed condition, he got possession of an old, unfin- 
ished building, which had been erected for a church, and determined 
to " raise the tabernacle of David that was fallen." He procured an 
organization by the Presbytery of New York, although but ten com- 
municants could be found in the neighborhood. 

" The next year an opening was presented for a church in a village 
within the same township; he promptly undertook a building there and 
completed it. Some years after he removed the old edifice above 
referred to, and erected on its site a tasteful church, which is and will 
long remain, we tinist, the ornament of the village, as well as the 
centre of saving influences. 

' ' From the infancy of these two congregations until his death he 
watched over them with the tenderness and anxiety of a parent. In 
all their struggles, his strong hand supported and his sagacious coun- 
sels guided them. The large drafts made year by year upon his own 
moderate resources, were met with a rare liberality. Demands which 
would have startled many of our wealthy Christians, he cheerfully and 
promptly satisfied. He was actuated by a deep and all-controlling 
principle. Religion was the prominent business of his life. His senti- 
ments on this and on other subjects he was never afraid or ashamed 
publicly to own. None of the inducements which were presented could 
persuade him to swerve from those high doctrinal principles, and that 
simple yet sublime form of worship which are the glory of our churches. 
His own household of faith, which he served as ruling elder, he sup- 
ported with an earnest and an unwavering purpose. He has left be- 
hind him these two, now flourishing churches, as monuments of his 
character, which shall perpetuate his name and his principles far more 
efficiently and usefully than columns of granite towering to the 
heavens, or the shouts of a nation applauding a victorious general. 
His death as well as his life illustrated his principles. Humble and 
self-diflident, yet confident, the most lowly views of his own unworthi- 
ness were conjoined with the most exalted views of Christ's righteous- 
ness. He disclaimed all personal merit, and ascribed his salvation 
entirely to grace; yet this gave him a bright hope, undoubting assur- 
ance, and triumphant exit from this world. "—A^. Y. Observer.

He represented Russia at the Court of Denmark, and was elevated 
to the Danish nobility Sept. 17, 1643, and granted the Coat Armor 
described by J. B. Riestap in his "Coat-Armor of the Netherland 
Nobility." 

He was the progenitor of the American branch of the Van Marselis 
family. He sailed in the ship " Beaver " from Beest, Holland, May 9, 
1661, for the Netherlands, arriving at New Amsterdam July 29, 1661. 
He paid for the passage of himself and wife 72, of his four children, 
aged 13, 6, 4, and 2 years, 90, and of his male and female servant 70 
florins, in all 232 florins or $92.80. 

He became a planter in Bergen, now in New Jersey. He was 
appointed a Schepen (magistrate) of Bergen Aug. 18, 1673. As a 
mark of honor he was buried under the Reformed Church of Bergen. 

Gabriel Marselis and his son's father-in-law, Michael Pauw, Pa- 
troon of Pavonia, were members of the Amsterdam Chamber of the 
Dutch W. L Co. who were pushing the settlement of New Netherlands. 

The influence of Gabriel, an Alderman of Amsterdam, 1648-9, 
1650-2, 1656-7, no doubt had to do with the selection of his brother 
Pieter the emigrant from Beest, and perhaps caused the emigration 
of the Janse Marselis of Bommel in Guilderland, Holland, who settled 
in 1656 in Beverwyck, New York, as Bommel and Beest were only six 
miles apart. 

As the children of this emigrant used Pieterse as the family name 
— Pieterse Marselis the 2nd, calling himself Merselis Pieterse— there 
were, probably, other children born to the first Pieter who continued to 



108 

use Pieterse as a family name and cannot now be verified. The de- 
scendants of Merselis Pieterse have used Marselis as a family name, 
spelling it, however, in many ways.

(She. m. 2nd. 1639, Jacob StofFelsen, b. 1601, d. 1677, who Aug. 
17, 1657, m. Tryntie Jacobs, the widow of Jacob WaHngen of Hoorn 
(Winfield land titles, p. 46), or as New York Dutch Ch. Marriages, p. 
22, has it " wid. of Van Jacob Walingen. " Tryntie survived Stoffelsen 
and m. Caspar Steinmets.) 

The name Voorst is probably derived from a place in Gelderland, 
Holland, near the river Yssel, called Voorst. He came probably as early 
as Sept. 8, 1634, probably returned to Holland in 1635, was appointed by 
Michael Pauw Burgomaster of Amsterdam, and Lord of Achtienhoven, 
near Utrecht, to superintend his colony, and returned and settled in 
Pavonia before June 25, 1636. Michael Pauw bought Staten Island 
Aug. 10, 1630, and the land in New Jersey between Communipaw and 
Weehawken, Nov. 22, 1630, both from the Indians, and called it 
Pavonia, of which he was Patroon. June 25, 1636, 

Gov. Wouter Van Twiller, Dominie Everardus Bogardus and Captain 
DeVries called on Van Voorst and all drank freely. They entered their 
boat for Fort Amsterdam and Van Voorst fired a salute from a swivel 
mounted on a pile in front of the house — a spark lighted the thatched 
house and in a half hour the house was in ashes.

and a few days later ransomed. In the war of 1655 he took refuge in 
New Amsterdam. In Oct., 1659, while dressing meat 

near his house, the Indians came and he fled with the meat in his row- 
boat to New Amsterdam, where he was fined 20 guilders and costs 
"for bringing meat to the city without taking out excise license." 
This was probably the first American tariff. Apr. 5, 

1664, Gov. Stuyvesant gave him a home lot at Ahasimus, now Jersey 
City. He was a farmer and accumulated money and land.
