1833. 



In 1806, Thomas Leavitt's survey for Carrigan's map contained a 
note of reference to "Leavitt's Island in the Hampton river." It was 
once called Sargent's Island, and in 191 1 is described as a piece of high 
land surrounded by the Hampton marshes; it is somewhat ledgy, has 
a small grove of willow trees, is touched on one point by the Hampton 
River, and is much visited in the summer months by camping-out and 
picnic parties. This was doubtless where John Leavitt lived. 

John Leavitt died intestate and insolvent. Mch. 5, 1770, his 
widow Mary petitioned and the son Jonathan, called " Mariner," was 
appointed administrator, and Mch. 7th gave a bond of five hundred 
pounds, the sureties being Christopher Toppan and William Davison, 
Cordwainer, all of Hampton. His inventory was 30 pounds and debts 
73—- 

Jonathan's account as administrator, dated Nov. 15, was acknowl- 
edged at Hampton Falls, N. H., Nov. 27, 1744; no division of real 
estate appears, the account showing only the various expenses with 
which Jonathan charges himself. "A certain tract of 16 acres, com- 
monly known as Sargent's Island," is called estate of John. See 
Exeter, Vol. 106, p. 496.

He is said to have had a brother with General Wolfe at Quebec in 
1759- 

He went with his father-in-law Francis Peabody and his brothers- 
in-law Symonds and White to St. John in 1764. 



32 



Rev.W. O. Raymond. Rector of St. Mary's Church, St. John, N. B.. 
a careful historian, says Jonathan Leavitt was of N. H., because a 
Jonathan deposed Aug. 31, 1792, in a suit in the Supreme Court of N. 
B. "that his name was Jonathan Leavitt, that he is 45 years of age, 
that he is a mariner and has had his usual place of residence in City of 
St. John: that he removed from the Province now State of New Ham.p- 
shire, to the river St. John some time in the year 1764." Letter of 
July 4, 1905, of A. W. Savary of Annapolis Royal, N. S., to V. C. San- 
born. 

In another deposition he states that from 1764 to 1774 he was 
master of one of the vessels of the Company and when in St. John 
Harbor lived in the family of Simonds and White who lived together 
at Portland Point. 

Raymond calls Jonathan and Daniel both Leavitt, and brothers. 

Will of Sept. 10, 1809, probated Feb. 13, 181 1, at St. John, N. B., 
Canada, of Jonathan Leavitt of St. John, mariner, mentions wife; 
names sons Daniel and Francis Executors; sons Thomas, youngest son 
George, Henry, W'illiam, James and John; eldest dau. Elizabeth, dau. 
Charlotte; "property at Miramachie to seven sons equally." 

Note by W. P. Bacon, Daniel or Francis is called Henry.

Notes. 

Jonathan Leavitt bp. Hampton, N. H., 1746. d. St. John, New Brunswick, iSii. 

Daniel Lovett b. 1753- d. St. John, New Brunswick, 1833. 

80th year. 

Both were mariners. Were they brothers ? 

John Leavitt, b. England, 1608, of Dorchester, Mass., 1634, and Hingham, whose 
sons Moses and Samuel went to Exeter, N. H.; Thomas Leavitt, b. England, 1615 (?), 
a settler of Exeter and Hampton Falls, N. H., about 1643, and John Lovett who 
came to Salem, Mass., in 1638, whose descendants were in Beverly and Mendon, 
exhibit no Daniel born 1753 in vital statistics, church nor probate, and only Thomas 
exhibits a Jonathan born 1746, in church records only. The late Mr. Rufus Leavitt 
of Melrose, Mass., said John, Thomas and John were all brothers, named Leavitt, 
and from Hingham, England. I have all the vital statistics and church records of 
New Hampshire down to 1760, and the name is spelled every possible way. 

No printed nor manuscript genealogy exists. 

Rev. W. O. Raymond of St. John, a careful historian, calls Jonathan and Daniel 
both Leavitt and brothers. 

Three great grandchildren of Jonathan are living {1911) in St. John, Miss Grace 
Leavitt, Robert T. Leavitt and A. Gordon Leavitt, the second of whom thinks Jona- 
than and Daniel v/ere brothers, that they quarreled and Daniel changed his name to 
Lovett. 

A grandson of Daniel, and son of George L., George F. Lovett, living in 1912 in 
Melrose, Mass., writes in Feb., 1912, "Some 60 years ago, I, a boy in St. John, used to 
hear my father speak of the children of Jonathan as his cousins," and he is sure that 
a quarrel of many years caused Daniel to change his name to Lovett. Clarence 
Ward, a genealogist in St. John, expresses the same opinion. In a St. John real 
estate record Daniel's name appears as Leavitt, corrected to Lovett. That he called 
himself Daniel Leavitt in 1788 appears in Register of Deeds, Vol. 143, page 393, in 
Exeter, N. H., where " I Daniel Leavitt of Province of New Brunswick convey to 
Michael Brown, Apr. 16, 1788, marsh in Hampton Falls." 

In his will only Lovett is written. 

A letter of May 3, 179S, written by Daniel's son, Daniel, Jr., to his mother while 
his father and he were on a trip to Boston, Mass., says, "Papa has been to Salisbury, 
(N. H.), all our relations and acquaintances are well there." 

A letter written early in the 19th century from London, N. H., by a sister of 
Daniel, to him was addressed "Capt. Daniel Leavitt," and said she had not heard 
from him for a long time.

Daniel's will of St. John, Jan. 13, 1820, probated there July 14, 1834, names wife 
Mary and the four children, George and the widow Mary, executors. 

A gravestone in St. John has "Sally, wife of Daniel Lovett died Dec. 6, 1901." 

As John Leavitt and his wife Mary Tilton married in 1730, and no record of 
births of their children is found except baptisms of John Tilton 1740, Joseph 1742, 
and Jonathan 1746, and, as John the father died 1770 leaving Mary a widow, it is 
likely that there were other children and that Daniel was one.

SEELY. 

I. Robert Seely b. d. New York 1667. 

m. 1st 

m. 2nd, New York, N. Y., Dec. 22, 1666. 
Mary Walker. 

Robert was in Watertown, Mass., in 1630, was a freeman May 18, 
1631, and owned land there, and in Wethersfield, Ct., in 1635, ^^^ 
owned land there and his lot can be identified there today at the 
corner of Plant Lane and Broad St. Sold out in 1638 and joined the 
New Haven Colony. Was one of the signers of the "Fundamental 
Agreement," a curiosity in the history of civil government. This 
was on June 4th, 1639 — and at the session of the Court he was ap- 
pointed Marshal of the Colony. Reappointed 1640-41-42, serving 
with credit. In 1643 ^^ ^^^ ^79 pounds and four in the family. 
In 1643 he ''^'^s sent to co-operate with Capt. Underhill against the 
Indians in aid of the Dutch — in May, 1646 he sold his New Haven 
home to John Bassett. His "Seate in church was in the 4th seaie of 
Middle Seats" for men and "Sister Seely sat in the 6th Seate in the 
Womans seates in the Middle." He asked leave to go to England 
about this time and the court granted it, but it doesn't appear that he 
went. He still appears in New Haven as Lieut. 1646 and 47 and in 
1648 was made Captain of Artillery — was also rate maker and leather 
sealer. In 1649 ^^ wanted to resign, but the court did not accept and 
the court thought of helping him to buy a house in New Haven. In 
1652 he appears as owning land at Stamford. In 1654 he was sent to 
help the L. I. Indians with powder and lead to "keep friends with 
them." In this year he asked pay for his services in 1653 and 1654 in 
the "design on the Dutch," but the court did not pay him as they said 
they did not "absolutely require his attendance," but they gave him 
5 pounds for his "encouragement in any service." 

In 1662 the court awarded him 15 pounds and gave him the use of 
a house at Saybrook where he had charge of the fort and ammunition 
and in Feb. of that year, the town of Huntington sent a boat to Say- 
brook for him. In 1663 he was appointed a commissioner to the tov.n 
of Huntington, L. I., and the same year he had a controversy with the 
town of Stratford about his rights in land there and the court adjudged 
that the town of Stratford pay him 25 pounds and he made over to 



42 

them all his right and title. He was appointed Chief Military Officer 
of Huntington, L. I., at this time. In 1665 he with Ogden and others 
started Elizabeth, N. J., and held land there in 1666. He was one of 
eight named-patentees of Huntington, L. I. 1667, the General Court 
of Conn, abated the widow Seely's rates for "Last year and this year." 
In 166S his widow applied to the court in New York for administration 
and on Oct. 19th, letters were granted by the court (see Surrogate's 
Office, N. Y. City— Wills and Administrations, 1665-16S3, Book I). 
His widow sold, Nov. 2, 1668, his land in Elizabeth, N. J., to Gov. 
Philip Carteret for 44 pounds. In July, 1669, his widow through Capt. 
Joseph Manning, "Executed in trust unto the aforesaid widow," sold 
" lands in Huntington, L. I." In the instrument Mrs. Seely refers to 
Capt. ^Manning as " my trusty and well beloved brother." 

The name has been spelled: Cilley, Cylley, Scillee, Sale, Sallie, 
Seeley, Seel, Seley, Sely, Seilley, Sela, Selah, Sele, Selie, Selil, Sellee, 
Selley, Selly, Silly, Silley, Silloy, Sylley.

Elizabeth, who m. Robert Scott. 

He graduated at Yale in 1776, and received the degree of M. A. in 
1792. 

The following is from Dexter's "Yale Biographies ": 

"Nothing is known of his history after graduation until he appears 
St. John, N. B., as the Secretary of the board of directors of the new 
settlement after the arrival there in 1783, of the refugees from the States. 
He became a landed proprietor in St. John, but soon removed into the 
country to Long Reach, in Kings County (north of St. John). While 
residing there he was married Nov. 9, 1786, to Charlotte, the eighth 
child and third daughter of Stephen and Elizabeth Wiggins, of New- 
burgh, N. Y., the widow of Stephen Hustice, a Loyalist, who had emi- 
grated to St. John. 

In 17S7 he removed to Sussex, in the same county, where he es- 
tablished a school for Indians, under the patronage of the London 
Society for Propagating the Gospel among the Indians. A year or two 
later the inhabitants of Sussex, who were without any clergyman, 
recommended Mr. Arnold to Bishop Inglis of Nova Scotia, for ordina- 
tion, and he was accordingly ordained (perhaps in 1791-2), and served 
from that date until his death as rector of the Church of England in 
Sussex. He also ministered to several missions in the vicinity, and 
traveled over a wide district as missionary of the Society for the Propa- 
gation of the Gospel. In January, 1829, one of his sons became his 
assistant, but he continued for five years longer to be actively em- 
ployed. 

His wife died in Sussex on Nov. 23, 1831, in her 66th year, and he 
followed her on Apr. 9, 1834, in his 79th year. They had five sons and 
two daughters, all of whom survived him except one son who died in 
infancy. 

The two youngest sons were graduated at King's College, Nova 
Scotia, in 1S19 and 1825 respectively, and became clergymen. 

The author of a sketch of his life printed at St. John in 1792 de- 
scribes Mr. Arnold as 'good-looking and of commanding appearance, 
somewhat over six feet in height. In business matters he was honor- 



63 

able, prudent and sagacious. Beneath a dignified and serious manner, 
which some mistakenly attributed to haughtiness, he carried a nature 
both friendly and genial. He was a temperate, moral and good living 
man. As a pastor he was much respected.' 

An engraving from a portrait is contained in Mr. Allison's sketch.

The Wiggins of Southold and Jamaica, N. Y., were perhaps from 
Southwold, Co. Suffolk, England. John, . aged 15, first appears in 
Southold in 1656. Thomas, Feb. iS, 1656, was granted a town-lot at 
the Jamaica town meeting. Thompson's History of L. I., 1843, P- 97» 
says: "Nov. 25, 1656, Thomas W'iggins was one of 20 who bought land 
from the Indians." He also bought land in 1679.

His will of Apr. 21, 1728 (N. Y.Wills, 11-66), names "wife Rebecca: 
brother Gershom Wiggins of N. J., brother Josias lately deceased and 
his sons William and Josias: sister-in-law Mary Williamsen and her 
daughters Rebecca Williamsen and Mary Williamsen: wife and two 
nephews. Executors." That it was Thomas Wiggins, Jr., and not his 
father that married the Woolsey, is proved by the following: 

In the will is " I leave my wife Rebecca the 20 acres I bought of 
William Foster." 

In the town record is " Feb. 16, 1683-4, William Foster of Jamaica 
has land adjoining Thomas Wiggins, Sr., which he sells to Thomas 
Wiggins, Jr."
