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

CONSTITUTION. 



PREAMBLE. 

Whereas^ It is desirable that there should be 
adequate celebrations commemorative of the 
events of Colonial History happening from the 
settlement of Jamestown, Va., May 13, 1607, 
to the battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775: 

Therefore^ The Society of Colonial Wars 
has been instituted to perpetuate the memory 
of those events, and of the men who, in mili- 
tary, naval, and civil positions of high trust 
and responsibility, by their acts or counsel, as- 
sisted in the establishment, defense, and preser- 
vation of the American Colonies, and were in 
truth the founders of this nation. With this 
end in view it seeks to collect and preserve 
manuscripts, rolls, relics, and records; to pro- 
vide suitable commemorations or memorials 
relating to the American colonial period, and 
to inspire in its members the fraternal and 
patriotic spirit of their forefathers, and in the 
community, respect and reverence for those 
whose public services made our freedom and 
unity possible.

SOCIETY OF COLONIAL WARS IN 
THE STATE OF NEW-YORK. 

The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New- York 
was instituted August iS^iSqz^ and incorporated October 18, 
1 892. The First General Court and dinner was held at Del- 
monico's, December 19, 1892, and the Second General Court 
and dinner at the Hotel Waldorf, December 19, 1 893. The 
growth of the Society during the year has been extraordinary, 
nearly two hundred and fifty members having been admitted 
since the First General Court. The stated meetings were 
held as provided for in the Constitution, and the Society 
has been officially represented during the year at the fol- 
lowing events : at the dinner of the Sons of the Revo- 
lution, February 22, and at their Church Service ; at the 
Van Speijk dinner of the Saint Nicholas Society, May 8 ; 
at the dinner of the Sons of the American Revolution, De- 
cember 16; at the dinner of the New England Society, 
December 21, and at the dinner of the Holland Society, 
January 17, 1894. 

A silver punch-bowl was presented to the Society on 
December 19, 1893, ^^ commemoration of its institution, 
by a number of the early members. 

The bowl is of solid silver, 13^ inches in height and 
18^ inches in diameter. Its weight is 298 ounces. The 
raised figures and etched silverwork are of the finest and 
most exquisite workmanship. Two large groups of imple- 
ments are represented on the body of the bowl. One con- 
sists of Indian hatchets, pipes, shields and feathers, and the 
other of old colonial firearms, powder-flasks, belts, and 
laurel wreaths. The name of the Society is also inscribed 
upon the bowl, with the dates of the colonial period, 1 607- 
1775. ^^ ^^^ ^^^ ^^^ ^^^ figures in characteristic costume 
and position ; one is the American Indian, with his toma- 
hawk raised ready to strike his foe, and the other represents 
* 25 



the old colonial soldier with his blunderbuss. American ferns 
and other foliage complete the decorations. Around the 
body of the bowl are the arms of the nine colonies. There 
are also two scenes etched on the bowl : one pictures a three- 
masted vessel sailing into a harbor, while a band of Indians 
are awaiting the landing on the shore ; and the other, a battle 
between the Puritans and the Indians. Twenty-three rare 
old silver coins are inserted in one side of the bowl. These 
coins cover not only the entire colonial period up to the 
time of George III., when the revolutionary era begins, but 
also all the time from the discovery of America in 1492. 
The first coin is a groat of Henry VIII., bearing the date 1 509. 
In the sides are three of the rare Massachusetts pine-tree 
shillings. The complete list is as follows : groat, Henry 
VIII., 1509; shilling, Philip and Mary, 1554-58; Philip II. 
of Spain, 1566; sixpence and shilling of Queen Elizabeth,

The silver ladle has a crouching wildcat for the top of 
its handle, and in the bowl is inserted a gold twenty-three- 
shilling coin known as the rose-noble of the time of James I., 
bearing the date 1605. 

The flag of the Society, consisting of the red cross of St. 
George on a white field, with the arms of the Province of 
New Netherland on the center, was also first displayed on 
the same occasion. 

The membership clause in the Constitution has been 
amended so that legislative service unaccompanied by mili- 
tary record no longer constitutes eligibility.

APPENDIX, 

Report of the Committee on Historical 
Documents on the Part that the Colo- 
nies Took in the Expeditions against the 
Spanish, 1740-1742.^ 

To the General Court of the Society of Colonial Wars in 
the State of New- York : 

In pursuance of the resolution of the Society appoindng 
the Committee on Historical Documents to prepare a xivsxmA 
of the part that the Colonies took in the expeditions against 
the Spanish, 1 740-1 742, with"a muster-roll of the Colonial 
troops^ your Committee begs leave to report that after a good 
deal of investigation into the public records of the several 
States of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Penn- 
sylvania, New- York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and 
Massachusetts, and after communicating with a number of 
officials and gentlemen of learning in those States, your Com- 
mittee is unable to prepare a complete muster-roll of the 
Colonial troops in these expeditions. 

In Maryland there seems to be nothing obtainable that is 
not already generally set forth in the common histories. 

In Virginia there are some facts of an interesting character 
that have not been brought to light in the histories of these 
expeditions, which are accessible to the ordinary reader. 

It is well known that when the war against the Spaniards 
was declared in the reign of George IL a requisition was 
made by that monarch in the thirteenth year of his reign 



apon all the colonies north of Carolina to send four bat- 
talions to assist the expedition against Cartagena under Ad- 
miral Vernon. 

Alexander Spottswood, Governor of Virginia, was ap- 
pointed the Commander-in-Chief of the expedition, bat he 
having died before matters were well under way, William 
Gooch, Lieutenant-Governor of the Colony of Vir^nia, was 
appointed in his place. 

The instruction to rsuse troops for service in this war was 
duly communicated to the Governor in Virginia, and prepa- 
rations were promptly made by William Gooch, to carry 
out the royal mandate. An act was passed for raising lev- 
ies and recruits by the General Assembly in May, 1740 
(5 Hening's " Statutes at Large,'' page 94). This act recites 
the instruction referred to, the desire of the Assembly upon 
all occasions to testify their loyalty and duty, and the fact 
" that there are in every County within this Colony able- 
bodied persons fit to serve his Majesty, who follow no lawful 
calling or employment." 

It was accordingly enacted that it may be lawful for the 
justices of the peace of every county in the colony, or any 
three or more of them, at any time before December 1, 
1 740, within their respective counties to raise and levy such 
able-bodied men as do not follow or exercise any lawful 
calling or employment, or have not some other lawful and 
sufficient support and maintenance to serve his Majesty as 
soldiers in the war. The assistance of the sherifis, under- 
sherifis, and constables in carrying the act into execution was 
directed, whose duty it was to search out such persons, bring 
them before the justices, and if they were found to be within 
the act they were to be immediately enlisted as soldiers, de- 
livered to the nearest constable, to be conveyed from con- 
stable to constable until they should be brought to the Lieu- 
tenant-Governor at Williamsburg. Any constable allowing 
an escape was to be fined five hundred pounds of tobacco, 
and persons so escaping were to be punished as deserters. It 
was specially provided, however, that nothing in the act 



should extend to the taking or levying any person to serve 
as soldier who had any vote in the election of a burgess or 
burgesses to serve in the General Assembly of the colony, or 
who was or should be an indented or bought servant. 

At a General Assembly held at Williamsburg, August i, 
1 740, an act was passed directing the treasurer of the colony 
to pay to Lieutenant-Governor William Gooch, Esq., five 
thousand pounds, to be applied toward providing victuals, 
transports, and other necessaries for the soldiers raised in the 
colony for service in the Spanish war (5 Hening's '' Statutes 
at Large/' page 121). 

The act recites that his most sacred Majesty (George XL), 
for vindicating the honor of his crown, for securing the trade 
and commerce of his subjects, and for revenging the cruel- 
ties, depredations, and insults committed by the subjects of 
Spain upon those of Great Britain, thought it necessary to 
enter into a war with Spain ; that in pursuance of his Ma- 
jesty's instructions a number of soldiers had been enlisted in 
the colony to serve on an intended expedition against the 
Spaniards in the West Indies ; that his Majesty had recom- 
mended and required of his good subjects of the colony to 
provide for the expense of victualing and transporting the 
said soldiers and all other incident charges attending the en- 
listing of them (except their pay, cloaths, arms, and ammu- 
nition) till their arrival at the general rendezvous in the 
West Indies; that the Assembly desired to give the utmost 
testimony of their loyalty and aftection to his Majesty's per- 
son and government, and had resolved to g^ve such sum as 
the circumstances of the colony would allow, notwithstand- 
ing the present low condition of the treasury, and that money 
could not be raised without borrowing it on the credit of the 
small revenues arising from duties upon liquors and slaves. 

The treasurer was authorized to borrow the said sum at 
six per cent, interest, and to pledge said revenues as security 
for repayment. 

There is little doubt that at least three companies were 
formally enrolled from Virginia, for it appears in the ex- 

lii 



ecutive journal under dmte of August 6, 1740, that the 
following were commissioned 

Captains : 

Lawrence Washington^ Charles Walker, 

and Richard Bushrod. 

Lieutenants : 

Francis Moss, Bellont, 

Lewis Browne. 

Ensigns : 

WiLUAM FiTZHUGH, HuGH RoSE, 

Young, Pilott. 

Under date of May 31, 1740, there is an entry in the 
Executive Journal of an estimate of ''three hundred and 
fifty pounds of shipping required to transport men that 
have been or shall be raised in this Colony for his Majesty's 
service." 

It is well known that Lawrence Washington actually served 
in this expedition. The Magazine of American History, 
Vol. II, page 436, N. Y., 1878, has a letter from him written 
from Jamaica, 1741. Lawrence Washington was a brother 
of George Washington, and Mount Vernon, afterward de- 
scended to George, was named by Lawrence after his old 
friend and companion in arms. Admiral Vernon, who had 
charge of the expedition. 

While it must be assumed that those who were compul- 
sorily enlisted under the acts referred to, were not admirable 
citizens of the colony, yet it is by no means certain that 
there were not in the expedition a great many volunteers 
against whom nothing could be said. 

The destruction by fire of the capitol building at Williams- 
burg and later at Richmond makes it now impossible, so far 
as our investigations have gone, to ascertain further than as 
above stated the names of the men (torn Virginia who took 
part in the expedition. 

It has been suggested that these muster-rolls may be found 
iv 



in the Foreign Office in London, and in the hope of ascer- 
taining the fact the Secretary of the Committee has recently 
written to our Minister on the subject; but sufficient time has 
not elapsed since to hear from him.^ 

In New-York the results of our investigations may be 
summarized as follows : 

On April 15, 1740, George Clarke, Lieutenant-Governor 
of the Colony, issued a proclamation, stating that on October 
19, 1739, ^^^ ^^^S ^^^ declared war against the Spaniards 
and that he had been directed to proclaim the same in all 
places under his government to the end that they may take 
care to prevent any mischief, which otherwise they might 
suffer from the enemy, and also to prevent any ammunition or 
other stores being carried to them. Also that an expedition 
was to be sent out from England under the command of 
Major-General Lord Cathcart with a convoy of men of war, 
to a place in the West Indies, to be appointed for that pur- 
pose, there to be joined by the squadron under command of 
Vice- Admiral Vernon, then in the West Indies, and by such 
a number of troops as may be raised in America. The 
American troops to be under command of Colonel Spotts- 
wood; and Colonel Blakeney^ Adjutant-General in the ex- 
pedition, was on his way from England with arms, clothing, 
and money. Ending by calling on his Majesty's subjects to 
cheerfully enlist as volunteers. 

The only muster-roll on record is this:. 

Company to be raised in New Rochelle, as follows : 

Captain : Anthony LispsNAan. 

Lieutenant : Will Le Conte. 
Ensign: Joseph Pell. 

Privates : 
Joseph Donaldson, James Cambey« 

Thomas Bolt, Nicholas Vallet, 

RoBEaT Clement, Darius Lunt, 

John Constant, Jr., John James Pilliond, 

William BaiDCEs. 



A second proclamation was issued on June 24, 1740, by 
Lieutenant-Governor Clarke in which he says it is his 
Majesty's intention that the troops raised in this province 
shall consist of companies of one hundred men each, includ- 
ing four sergeants^ four corporals, and two drummers, besides 
three commissioned officers ; but his Majesty reserves to himself 
the nomination of the field and staff* officers and one lieu- 
tenant for each company, who will be men of experience ; 
also one sergeant will be furnished for each company from 
the four independent companies posted here. ''All the 
other officers are left to my nomination, and I have received 
blank commissions for same." All officers and men to receive 
same pay as in British army. In case of the death of Major- 
General Spottswood, before appointed, the command was to 
go to Hon. William Gooch, Esq., Lieutenant-Governor of 
Vir^nia, an experienced officer. 

On July 22^ ^740, David Provost having raised a com- 
pany, was commissioned to command it; the 2d lieuten- 
ancy was offered to one Hinman, but he refused. 

A law was passed July 12, 1740, entitled "An Act for 
Transporting and Victualling of Volunteers Inlisted in this 
Colony to serve in the Expedition therein mentioned," ap- 
propriating ^2500 for transporting to the place of" General 
Randevous " all of the forces from this colony, and for pro- 
curing and putting on board of vessels such provisions as 
may be requisite. 

Colonel Joseph Robinson and Mr. Stephen Bayard were 
appointed commissioners, with the advice of the Lieutenant- 
Governor, the Hon. Colonel Gooch, and the Hon. Colonel 
Blakeney, or the major part of them, to apply the money for 
the purposes for which appropriated. 

The commissioners were required by the law to ** Enter 
into Recognizance before any of the Justices of the Supreme 
Court or before the Mayor of the City of New York, unto 
his Majesty, his Heirs and Successors in the sum of ^1250 
with two sufficient sureties, each in half that sum" for proper 

vi 



performance of their duties; the commissioners to receive 
five per cent, of money expended as pay. 

On September 18, 1741, the Lieutenant-Governor^ in a 
speech to the Council^ said he had received a letter from Gen- 
eral Wentworth asking for more recruits, and requesting that 
they uke speedy measures for transporting and victualing 
same. 

On September 10, 1740, in a speech to the General Assem- 
bly, the Lieutenant-Governor said: "At your last sitting you 
gave a sum of money for Transporting and Victualling 500 
men, to be employed in the Expedition against the Spaniards, 
that being the number you then thought would be raised in 
this province, for that service ; but there being now another 
company of 100 men raising and almost compleat; I recom- 
mend to you to give a fiirther sum.** 

This request was denied by the General Assembly on the 
ground that the intended expedition had been misrepresented 
by the Lieutenant-Governor who said in his proclamation of 
April 15 that Colonel Blakeney would bring with him 
(besides arms, etc.) money to pay all expenses; and that al- 
though they did not expect the province would have to pay, 
they had nevertheless granted ;;^2500 and did not now care 
to increase this debt. 

The records at Albany stop here and no further reference 
is made to the New-York troops in the expedition. 

In Massachusetts laws were passed in May and September, 
1740, and November, 1741, to encourage the expedition by 
giving bounties to enlisted men and providing for their ex- 
emption from civil process during the time of their actual ser- 
vice, except for debts exceeding ^30, and providing the sum 
of ^5000 for the transport and wages of seamen employed in 
the service. 

Your Committee are gratified to state that the archives of 
Massachusetts apparently contain a full register of the troops 
from that State, and have had the same transcribed, to be 
filed with this report. 

vii 



The public records of New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsyl- 
vania, Delaware, Rhode Island and New Hampshire do not 
disclose any muster-rolls whatever, or the names of any 
officers of these expeditions, or any other information, so far 
as we have been able to ascertain. 

Your Committee would recommend that the Committee 
on Historical Documents for the ensuing year be requested 
to pursue this investigation, as we cannot but feel that if the 
matter be followed up the names of the men who partici- 
pated in this interesting and yet (in the details) obscure 
event may be, as they ought to be, rescued from oblivion. 

All of which is respectfully submitted.

Howard R. Bayne, Secretary. 

New- York, December 19, 1893. 

1 Printed from the unexpended balance of the appropriation made to 
the Committee. 

' Since the foregoing was written the Secretary of the Committee has 
received from Hon. Thos. F. Bayard, United States Ambassador to 
Great Britain, a letter inclosing correspondence between himself and 
Mr. B. F. Stephens, who is engaged in publishing in facsimile, original 
documents relating to the formation of our Government. At the in- 
stance of Mr. Bayard, Mr. Stephens made an examination of docu- 
ments in the Public Record Office in London, sufficient to disclose the 
fact that probably all the information the Committee required to sub- 
stantially carry out the Resolution of the Society is obtainable from that 
office. Mr. Stephens has, with great kindness and consideration, pre- 
pared a memorandum for the use of the Committee, which points di- 
rectiy to sources of valuable and interesting information on the subject 
under view, which has never been published. 

The thanks of the Society are due both to Mr. Bayard and to Mr. 
Stephens for their intelligent and efficient cooperation in the work of 
the Committee.
