rpHP: loss of Family ISililes and Records, the death of all the 
members of the preceding generation known to tlie writer and 
the dispersion of the different branches of the family m seeking 
new homes prior to this century, combine to leave only as a tra- 
dition much of the earlv history of our fanuly. 

The withm narrative has been prepared for the benefit of 
the generation that follow,-, us, and in the hope it may lead 
to the production of much of tlie detail of the family history, 
the existence of which is now not known to the 

SixiH Gknekation. 
September, iSgo. 

rpHE above referred to sketch was jirivately distributed, and 
brought to the writer some additional luforniaiion, the most im- 
portant being a genealogical record of Andrew Patterson and ids 
descendants, prepared many years since bv Mr. D, Williams Pat- 
terson, of Newark- Valley, New York, who, though not a descend- 
ant ot Andrew, had with great care, collected and arranged his 
record, of which the writer of this paper has availed himself in 
its preparation. He regrets that it is still so incomplete, because 
of the many missing details of family succession, particularly since 
the Fifth Generation, with which, therefore, this papei closes. 
April, i8()2. 

HE iiiipros?ion left upon the mind of the student of the his- 
tory of the period of Andrew I'atteison'b life in ScoUatid, 
would appear to tit', th;it lie an<l vei-v uianv with him, knc)wn 
fometimcs as '" Whigs," and generally as " Covenanters," were 
aetnated in their conduct as much hy their patriotism as Scotch- 
men, a rate never coiupiered, as bv their aversion to Episcopacy 
in their i-eligious views, and while resisting the efforts to force 
upon them religious forms and practices objectionable to them, 
they also realized that their national independence was at issue, 
and f\ught accordingly. There are reasons for believing that 
all of his name, in his vicinity, were known as ''Covenanters" 
and Nationalists. Their monuments still e.xist in that vicinity, 
the best known one being in the churchyard in the old town of 
Stratlia\en, near Hamilton, reading: 

" Here Lyes The Corpses Of William Faterson Aud 
John Barrie Vho Vas Shot To Death P^or Their Ad- 
hering To The ^Vord Of God And Our Couenants 
Anno 16S5. 

'' Here lys tuo martyrs seuerally, who fell by Captains 
Inglels and by bloody Eell. Posterity shall knou 
theyre shot to death as sacritices uu to popish wrath.'' 

On its pedestal : 

" Renewed by the Reformers of Avoiidale at the pass- 
ing of the Reform Bill Anno Domini 1S32." 

The above named William Patersoii was the son of Rob- 
ert, who was killed in the tight at Airdsmoss, July 2'2, ICSU. 

" He, with thii-teen other=, had been gathered togcthei- 
for religiou.> exeicises at a place called Charon-l.eugh, 
upon the Lord'sday. Ten of them escaped, but Pat- 
erson and the otiier tiiree were taken. The three 
took the Aljjuratioii ()ath, which Paterson refused, 
and the soldiers carried him away to Strathaven Cas- 
tle, where, in thi' atternoon of the same Sabbath, 
v.dthout trial, lie wa.^ shot hy a Captain Bell." 

The date of this occurrence would appear to have been in 
April, liJSS. 

A NDliEW PATTERSON, boru lG59,a native and resident 
^ of Haniiltun, a i-Joivmgh of Lanarkshire, Scotland, came to 
America in December, lt;S.">, and died at Stratford, Connecti- 
cut, in 1746. 

The story uf his expatriation is derived from liistorical 
sources, whicli give no clue to his previous lifeor surroundings, 
but it is certain that he was conspicuous as a •' Covenanter " 
and probable t\at he was in the tight at Bothwell Bridge in 
1079. The record is distinct, in that, he suffered with those 
Scotcli Presbyterians who refused to acknowledge the Sup-i'em- 
acy <jf the King in matters of religion, to abjure their religious 
faith, or to waver in their loyalty to ■" Christ's Crown and The 
Covenant, "•• and was among those whu, escaping the gallows 
or mutilation, T were banisheil to the Americau plantatioiis in 
the brief reign of King Jaaies the Second, and shortly after 
his accession. It is very probable that he was among those wiio 
underwent the horroi-s of Dunnotter Castle, though the availa- 
ble records first refer to him by name, as a prisoner conlined in 
the Tolbooth at Leith, August 17, 10S5. 

Intimately connected wi*h the story of his expatriation 
and final settlement in Xew England, is Mr. George Scot, Laird 
of Pitlochie, who, frei|uently heavily fined and imprisoned for 
his attendance at the religious services of his faith, fi-oni liis 
last. confinement in the Bass petitioned for his release, ofi'erisig 
in that event, to expatriate himself. This petition, was acted 
upon April 1, ICSl, and Scot was once more at liberty.

■•■"Those thus marlcid viers among a large number who, on July 31st, were 
sentenced to have their k-ft cars cut oif by thecomniou executioner on the ensuing 
4th of August" 

" This lilierty was emplovod by him in preparincr the 
Model of the (Toveiiuni'iit nf East New Jersey, in 
America, to which we are indel'ted for a hti'ge portion 
of the information whicli has come dnwn to us, re- 
specting the condition of East Jersey at that time, the 
character of the settlers, and the circumstances which 
attended their emigration from Scotland. His posi- 
tion in society, iiis connection with many of the Hr.-t 
families of the kingdom, and the persecvitions to which 
he had been subjected, ail teiided to secure for his 
work much more cunsideration from his countrymen 
than would have been the case had the author been 
less distinguished, and when adding example to pre- 
cept, he announced his intention of embarking with 
his family for the newly discovered asvlum for the 
oppressed, it is not surpi'ising th;it many should have 
associated themselves with him in the undertaking." 

The approbation of those in authority was obtained and his 

arrangements were made, based upon the following permission: 

By the Hight Honorable Earl of Perth, Lord High 
Chancellour of Scotland, etc.: 

These are permitting and allowing ^ilr. George Scot, of 
Pitlochie, with his lady, children and family, and such 
other persons as he shall ingage, to pass from this 
Kingdom, either by sea or land, to any of his Majes- 
ties P'oreign plantations, providing such persons to be 
transported by him be not declared Traitors, Rebels, 
Fugitives, and that without any let, impediment or 
molestation from any person whate>er, they alwavs 
behaving themselves peaceably and according to law. 
Given at Edinburgh, the tirst of Jannary, 1HS5. For 
all magistrates, otticei's and souldiers within the King- 
dom of Scotland, whom these do or may concern. 

Perth, Caxcell. 

Patterson was not includLd in this permission to Scot, and 
this much s[>ace is given to Scot's history, liecause of the in:^ight 
it gives of the time and its men, and because of liis direct con- 
nection with and bearing upon the future of Patterson. 

Scot evidentlv desired to found acolonv larirer in numbers 

than were purely emigrants, and Fel)riinry 11, li'S5, the Coun- 
cil authorized b^cot, \<\ warrant, to transport to the plantations 
one hundred of the prisoners eonlined at Ghisgow, Edinburgh 
and Stirling, *' if the\- were willing to go."' Of these it wouhi 
appear that he engaged tifty. August 7th he asked the Coun- 
cil to transfer to him a large inunber of prisoners who had been 
banished to Jamaica, but only twelve were granted him. Aug'- 
gust 17th, 21st an«l I'Sth, cue hundred and live persons who 
had refused the oath of allegiance to the king, or had been pre- 
viously banished and were then in the Tolbooth of Leith, were 
ordered to be delivered to Scot, to be transported to East Jer- 
sey, on his giving security to land them tliere, as, by a certitieate 
from the governor or deputy governor, might be made to ap- 
pear, prior to September, It'iS*), tlie penalty to be tive hundred 
merks in case of failure in any instance. Patterson was in- 
cluded in those banished l)y the decree of the Privy Council of 
August 17, 1GS5, the text of which is as follows: 

Forasmuch as the persons underwritten, viz : "'■ - *

juration, in manner at length libelled, and all the said 
persons being men. have judicially, in the presence

III the trepidation of tlie authorities over the rumored ex- 
pedition of Arijyle from Holland, they bad reiitoved, on the 
ISth of May, IfiS.^^ all the pri.-oners held for their reli^nons 
views, to the Castle of Dunnotter, on the N. E. coast of t^eot- 
land. The story of the sutterings on the march, of that body 
of men and women, about 200 in number, and of tlie horrors 
of tlieir imprisonment in the castle dungeons, has been brieflv 
told by Scott in his introduction to '• Old JMortality," and in his 
" Tales of a Grandfather," and is fully narrated in " The Mar- 
tyr Graves of Scotland." Those surviving, who resolutely re- 
fused to take the oath of allegiance with the acknowledgement 
of the King's supremjxcy in ecclesiastical matters, were marched 
back in August to Leith. 

WoDRow tells the story from thence onward, and from it 

is selected the material features relating to the voyatre and 

landing, as follows : 

woDROw's nisToTiv, VOL. •!, pp. 505-.567. 

Sect. xii. " Plaving in the former section given the 
■ history of the sutiVrings ot" these good people who 
were taken to Dunnotter this summer, I am now to 
follow a good many of them to America. 


Argyle'b iava^iou being now over, and no more fears 
from that Airt, the Councils began to weary of the 
prisoners at Dunnotter, and brought tlieni b;ick to 
Leith, as we have seen, where another essay was made 
to bring them to comply with the impositions now 
put on people in their circuuistanees, and upon their 
refusal, they resolved to send good numbers of them 
to the plantations, and so rid themselves of any more 
trouble about them. Accordingly, after neai-ly three 
month's severe treatment at 1 )unnotter, they came to 

"The Council were pleased to come down to Leith, and 
sit in the Tolbooth there, and "spent some time in the 
Re-e.\amination of the prisoners. It was but very 
few complied with their impositions, and they were 
dismissed. Others, who were very weakly and had 
some friends to intercede, got off u]>on a Bond of 
Compearance when called, as Mr. William McMillan, 
who gave bond as above, under the penalty of tive 
thousand Merks. The most part of them refusing 
the oatlis, and to satisfy in other particulars, were 
perpetually banished to America, and many of tliem 
gifted to the Laird of Pitlochy, to be carried thither. 

" Several of their testimonies and letters they wrote to 
tlieir friends toward the end of August, are before 
me, and particularly an original letter from about 
twenty-eight of them, dated Leith Eoad, August 28, 
1685, directed to their friends, too long to b< here 
insert. In short they signify, 'That now being to 
leave their owti native and covenanted land by an un- 
just sentence of banishment, for owiung trutli, and 
holding by duty, and studving to keep their covenant 
engagements and baptismal vows, whereby they stand 
obliged to resist and testify against all that is contrary 
to the word of <Tod and their covenants, and that 
their sentence of banishment ran chiefly because they 
refused the oath of allegiance, which in conscience 
they would not take, because in so doing they thought 
they utterly declined the Lord Jesus Christ from hav- 
ing any power in his own house, and practically 
would, by taking it, say he was not king and head of 


his cliurch, and over tlieir consciences, and on the 
contrary, this was to take and put in his room a inan 
whose breath is in liis nostrils ; yea. a man that is a 
sworn enemy to religion, an avowed papist wlioni by 
our covenants we ire l)Onnd to withstand and disown, 
and that agreeably to the Scripture, Deut. xyii, 14, 
15.' They go .uTto leave their testiuiony against the 
evils of thelimes. and for the reading of the gu>iiel 
in the tields and liunies. and sign a-^ follows : 

•■ •■ ^ Andrew i'aterson, - •' - 

"The prisoners lay some time in tlie Jiuad of Leith be- 
fore all was ready, and sailed the 5th of Scpteaiber. 
Informations before me bear that I'itlochy tampered 
with some of them, particularly James Forsyth, to 
get money before they saile.l, offering for tive pounds 
sterling, paid now. to let him at lil>erty as soon as 
thev came to land. Dut James answered he would 
five no Monev to carry him out of his n;itive Land, 
adding, he had done nothing worthy of iianishnient. 

" After they had turned the Land End, the Fever began 
to lage in the ship, especially among such who had 
been in the great Vault of JJunnotter. Not a few of 
them were sick when they came aboard, and no won- 
der, considering the BarbaroLis Treatment they had 
met with. 

" In a Month's Time the Fever turned malignant, and 
few or none in the ship escaped it, in so much that it 
was usual to cast over Board Three or Four dead 
bodies in one Day. Most of the Ship's crew except 
the Cajttain and Boatswain, died, ritlochie. who iiad 
freiirhted the ship, with his excellent Lady, died like- 
wise, and so enjoyed nothing of the Produce of near 
a liundred Prisoners gifted liim by tlie Council, and 
near seventy persons died at sea. 

"Many were the Disasters of this Voyage. The ship 
was at the utmost Hazard by the breaking up of a 
Leak of two several Times. They had se\-eral Calm^ 
and some pretty severe st<:irms. 

" Very uuich for the Advantage of the passengers and 
Prisoners, the Wind turned straight for New-jersey 

t 13 


I* and they were forced t<> sail witli it. There thev ar- 

i rived al)Out the middle of I)erenil)er, after tliey had 

been about Fifteen AVeck;^ at Sea. At their landing 
I many of them were sick; and Mr. Frazer ol)serves 

I that a worthy Gentleman frmn the West of Scotland 

I Died among their Hands as they were carrying him 

I ashore. The same Person observes, that partly of 

such who voluntai-ily otFei'cd themselves to go abroad 
from the Kingdom of Scoiland, and partly of such 
who were persecuted by I>anishment. there were u])- 
wards of nO died at Sea who.-e lilood (adds he) will 
be found in the Skirts of Enemie.-. as really as if they 
had died at the Cro^s and Grass-market of Ivlinburgh. 

•' Before the Prisoners came ashore, it was once intended 
by Mr. Johnstoun, to whom Pitlochie had made them 
over, to stop their getting out of the Ship, till 
should all of them, under their Hand, sign a volun- 
tary Declaration, as it was called, that they ottered 
Four Years' Service at that Place. Put this they 
would not yield unto ; yea, a considerable number of 
them joyned in a Protestation against their Banish- 
ment, with a large narrative of the Hardsliips they 
endured during their Voyage, and formerly, for Con- 
science sake. 

" A little way up the Country there was a Town where 
there was a Minister settled, and the Inhabitants there 
were very kind to them. When they had Informa- 
tion of the Prisoners" Circumstances, they invited all 
who were able to travel, to come and live with them, 
and sent Horses for such as were not, and entertained 
them that Winter freely, and with mueh Kindness. 

" In the folhjwinL'" Spring Mr. .rohnstoun, upon his 
Father-in-Law's Gift of the Prisoners, pursued them, 
and got them all cited before the Court of that 
Province. After hearing both Sides, the Governor 
called a dury to .-it and cognosce upon the Aflair. 
They found that the Pannels had n<>t of their own 
accord come to that Ship, nor bargained with Pit- 
lochie for Money or Service, and therefore according 
to the Laws of the Country, they were assoiled, 


upon which Ino^t of the Prisoners returned to Xew- 
cn;^'Kind, where tliey were kindly entertained, and 
iniploycd according to tlieir ditierent Stations and Ca- 

" A good many of the Passenger^ and Prisoners died 
in the Plantations, the rest returned to their native 
Country at tlie lia})py Revolution." (lt>S>;-s9.) 


I rpiruS, on die I'^tli of December, 1685 (according to the 
h ' diarv of liis fellow passenger, Roliert McEvven), Andrew 

I Patterson, at 2^ vears of ao;e. landed at Perth Aniliov. They 
t were received coldly i)y the loyalist residents of that ])lace, and 
I for a short time enjoyed the hospitality of the people of the 
I town of (probably j Woodbridge. Patterson and McEwen, 
I havine: heard in Scotland of the irrcater dci^ree of religious 
I freedom enjoyed in Connecticut, proceeded there on foot, and 
I on the ISth of July, It^SO. arrived at and made their future 
I home in '' ve old Town ot' Stratford." 

I Nov. 20, 1691, he bought of Kichard Blackleach sixteen 

I acres of land on '• the west si<ie of Stonibrook Hill," and from 
i that time until 1740 his name often occurs in the Stratford 
records in the purchase or sale of land. 

In the Town records he. as Sergt. Andrew Patterson, is 
recorded as School Committeeman in 1717. lie and his sons 
William and John were Town " proprietors,"' and drew their 
proportion of undivided land. November, 1738. February 19, 
1690, at 31 years of age, he married Elizabeth Peet, of Strat- 
ford (b. Feb. 19, ]669(, a granddaugliter of John Peet, who 
came from Derby in England in l»''o5. He died at Stratford, 
and, with a granddaughter and grandson, lies in the old Con- 
gregational Burying Place, the inscription on his memorial 
stone reading : 

" Here lies ye body of 

Mr. Andrew Patterson, 

who departed this Life, I )ecember ye 'Jd, Aimo Domni 

174H. Aged "^ 7 years." 

After his death his wife accompanied her son John to his 

new home in Cornwall, Connecticut, where she died in the 96th 

year of her age. (1765.)

Dexter's "Yale Annals" (1SS5) makes record of John as 
follows : 

"John Patterson was the seventh and youngest child 
of Andrew Patterson, one of a shipload of Scotch 
emigrants who had refu.-cd to take the oath of alle- 
giance and were consequently banished from their 
homes and arrived at Perth Ambov, Ntw .lersey, in 
December, lO'^S : thence, in the followinij- summer, 
lie reiuoved to Stratford, Connecticut, where he mar- 
ried Elizabetli Peet, in Itj'.'l. and where his son was 
born, June 24, 1711. At the age of nineteen, or 
two years after griduation, he married Mary, daugh- 
ter of Captain Josiali and ilary Curtiss, of Stratford, 
two years his juriior.- In 1740 he was enrolled as 

*The Ciirti s family recurd makes lier of the ame age as her husband, as

T,ieiitenant in the expedition proposed against the 
French. lie resided in Stratford until aliout 1T5G, 
when he removed to Cornwall, Litclitield county, and 
tlience, after 1760, to Westminster, on the west bank 
of the Connecticut liiver, in what is now Windham 
County, Vermont. He tiually settled, shortly before 
the outbreak of the Kevulution, in Piermont, a new- 
town some sixty miles further north, on the New 
Hampshire side of the river. Here his wife died, 
July 1>, 17.^9, in her 7Sth year, and here he himself 
died Jan. 20, lSO"i,in his 95th year, having been for 
six years the oldest graduate. He retained in a re- 
markable degree all his faculties to the day of his 
death. He was active and regular in his hahits, very 
fond of gardening, and had chai-ge of a large garden 
the year before his death. He had ten children born 
in Stratford." 

The land records of Litclitield and Cornwall show that 
John was of Stratford until Sept. iO, 17")3 ; of Litchtield, June 
io, 1754, and May -I'K 1755, and of Cornwall, July 27), 1755. 
He lived at Cornwall Centre, was Town Clerk and Justice, and 
his residence was where, in ISCO, Air. George Wheaton was 
living. He removed about 1760 t<> Westminster (now in Ver- 
mont). From there, Jan. -27, 1771, he, with his sons Isaac 
and Benjamin, were petitioners to the King, that he would de- 
clare the New Hampshire grants not to belong to New York. 

Dec. 17, 1772, he from there petitions Gov, Tryon, of 
New York, that the people of Cumberland county might elect a 
representative to the General Assembly. \V"ith two of his sons 
he was at Crown Point and took part in the French war. 

About 1773 he remr.ved to Piermont (settled in 17'5>^), 

New Hampsl'ire. In the Miimtes of the Colonial Council of 

Connecticut it is recorded in Alav, 1775 : 

" John Patterson, Esquire, of Piermont, of the Prov- 
ince of New Hampshire, Agent of said Town, pre- 
ferred a petition in favor of said Piermont, stating 


itj3 expo.-ed situation to Quebec at that alarminfr pe- 
riod, auJ e\[>ertiii>: an attack l>y the French and in- 
di;nk- from Canada; that said Town had voted to sup- 
ply thcRiselvcs with arms and ammunition, of which 
tliey were nearly destitute, and hcing without money 
in the infant state of the Town, prayed the Colony of 
Connecticut to sell tliem tifty pounds of powder, of- 
fering their note \ritli security, to be paid in ]May, 
17T0, with interest, and signed by John PattersoTi, 

" A resohition was passed directing tlie powder to be 
delivered, and t. > take said Patterson's note for the 
same, payable the 1st day of May, 17Tt>, witli in- 

His great-grandson, Ashbel Patt-^rson, of Ithaca, New 
York, said of him : "'In person, lie was rather below the nnd- 
dle size of men, had a finely shaped head, blue eyes, an intel- 
ligent and agreeable countenance, and a very retentive menu'rv. 
He possessed a great fund of anecdote relatiuir to his colleire 
life, the history of Stratford, and the Indian, French and Psv- 
olutionary wars. These were the never-failing themes of win- 
ter evening entertainments." 

His grandson, Isaac Patterson, of Bath, N. H., who lived 
in the house with him until he was fourteen years of age, said 
of him : " lie never studied any profession. He was reputed 
a good scholar and retained his knowledge of the Latin till the 
close of his life. He retained his powers, mental and physical, 
in a remarkable degree, until within a few days of his death. 
His habits were regular and active for his years, and he iiad a 
great memory." 

Mary his wife, died at Pierraont, July IS, 1TS9, aged TS. 
He died at Piermont, Jan. 20, 1S06, aged 95. 

The Connect'icvt Joirnud of Feb. 6, 1S06, said of him : 

" Died, at Piermont, X. H., on the -iOch ult., John Patter- 
son, Esq., cet. 94:, who remarkably retained his mental and bodily 


j faculties till the day of his death. If correct haliits and a per- 

[ severa?iee in all the Christian virtues are of any consequence 

I to morals, he has left au example to posterity truly worthy of 

I imitation. He graduated at Yale College in the year 1T2S."
