Assessment Lists and Other Manuscript Documents of Lan-

By H. Fkank Eshleman, Esq. 

Minutes of September Meeting. 195 



Assessment Lists and other Doc- 
uments of Lancaster Connty 
Prior to the Year 1729. 



About the only original Lancaster 
county manuscript documents, now 
known, dating before 1729 are: A cer- 
tified copy of the petition for the erec- 
tion of our county, signed in 1728; the 
letters, drafts, surveys and maps made 
by Isaac and Jacob Taylor, surveyors 
for William Penn's sons; some letters 
and other correspondence of John 
Wright, Tobias Hendricks, Edmond 
Cartledge, Robert Barber, and a few 
others; a few early patents, title deeds 
and other land contracts; a few road 
petitions and proceedings; some anci- 
ent wills and a few early assessment 
lists. All these, taken together,would 
make a very small volume, if reduced 
to print. 

There is nothing at all in our Court 
House in manuscript form, dated be- 
fore 1729. This is so because, prior to 
that date, we were part of Chester 
county. Indeed, there is very little, in 
the shape of manuscript, prior to 1750 
in our Court House. Practically all 
there is to be found there are the 
Quarter Sessions and road records,the 
Common Pleas dockets, the appoint- 
ment of constables, overseers of the 
poor and highways, the granting of

liquor licenses, and the minutes of 
the County Commissioners, and the 
records of wills, estates and deeds. 

All of the assessment lists before 
1750 are gone. I think the earliest 
list preserved of Lancaster town and 
borough is that of 1754. It is printed 
^ among our society's proceedings. At 
the time Mr. Samuel Evans wrote his 
history of our county, the assessments 
of several townships prior to 1750 
were here, because he has copies of 
some of them in his book. But it is 
very probable that some of these lists 
were taken out for the printer of that 
work and have never been returned. 

The Quarter Sessions and road and 
Common Pleas records are here be- 
cause they are in docket form. But 
the old Common Pleas dockets are 
very frail. The first Commissioners* 
minute book is in fine condition. 

Returning to the documents relating 
to our county before 1729, we may 
note that the record of laying out the 
roads (which began in 1719) are well 
preseved in book form in the Quarer 
Sessions Court of Chester county as 
to common roads. The future will 
owe a great debt of gratitude to Gil- 
bert Cope for the collecting and bind- 
ing of those records. There were sev- 
eral roads laid out, reaching into what 
is now our county, from 1719 to 1726. 
I have made drafts of some of them. 
The records of the King's Highways 
are preserved in the Colonial Records, 
now in print. The original drafts and 
petitions and surveyor's notes before 
1729 are very rare. 

The original petition for the erection 
of Lancaster county has long since 
been lost; but a certified copy of it, 
made 175 years ago by John Wright, 
was found some years ago at Harris- 
burg, and it is printed in our pro- 
ceedings and a copy also hangs in our 
Commissioners' office. Two petitions 
filed against the erection of the coun- 



(157) 

ty, noticed in the votes of assembly, 
are not in known existence. They were 
numerously signed by Germans. 

The drafts and surveys of land here, 
containing much data, as to roads, 
woods, etc.; and the warrants for and 
returns of the same, are found by hun- 
dreds in the library of the Historical 
Society of Pennsylvania in Philadel- 
phia, in the Taylor Papers. They in- 
clude practically the whole county. 
Those ante-dating 1729 themselves 
make a good-sized list. In many 
cases five or ten, or even twenty-five 
separate tracts, are found in one con- 
nected draft. One who had the leisure 
and application could construct from 
them a map of our county, in 1729, 
showing where all the inhabitants 
owning land lived at that time. 

The correspondence as to the early 
taking up of land, finding of min- 
erals, conflicts of claims, the move- 
ment and activities of the Indians, 
etc., is also preserved in the original 
letters, etc. These, as a whole, il- 
lumine the early activities of our 
people before 1729. 

The minutes of land granting here, 
as well as in the other parts of Penn- 
sylvania, from 1686 are printed in Vol. 
19, Sec. Series of Pa. Archives. They 
give a great deal of side light light 
upon many early local movements here 
before 1729, such as the places of wor- 
ship and the burial grounds, the mills 
and woodlands, etc. The manuscripts 
as to these matters are likely at Har- 
risburg. 

The early patent deeds and other 
conveyances of land hore before 1729 
are, of course, in possession of the 
modern owners of the lands included 
in them; except also a fairly large 
percentage which may be found in the 
Historical Society at Phladelphia, in 
our own county records and else- 
where. Copies of many of the Taylor 
Papers are in our own library also. 



(158) 

The assessment lists of our county 
began in 1718. Those now in exist- 
ence extend from 1718 to 1726, inclu- 
sive, except that of 1723. These lists 
were in the dark recesses of the base- 
ment of the Chester County Court 
House until 1879, when Gilbert Cope 
rescued them and much other valu- 
able early history, jurt r.s the County 
Commissioners were about to sell 
them to the waste paper man,to "raise 
money for cigars," as Mr. Cope old 
me. The lists, of course, include only 
Conestoga (later East and West 
Conestoga), Donegal and Pequea 
townships, as these large, partly-or- 
ganized sections practically included 
the whole of the Lancaster county re- 
gion then inhabited. 

I have copied these assessment lists 
complete, and have them here with 
me this evening. They should be 
printed in our records, because they 
ought to be in the possession of our 
county. This is important for legal, 
historical, sociological and genealog- 
ical reasons; and also as aids in es- 
tablishing complete title records of 
real estate. When we consider that 
for one hundred years Philadelphia 
was the only port of ei-try of the 
United States, through which the Ger- 
man-Swiss population swept into this 
country; and that from the valleys of 
the Susquehanna and the Schuylkill, 
these sturdy people spread out in 
ever-widening areas southwest, west 
and northwest, and established the 
German-Swiss populations of all the 
middle-western and the far-western 
part of this empire republic of ours, 
we can see the importance of a true 
and accurate list of the originals, of 
that people and of the townships in 
which they lived. This County of 
Lancaster, being the motherland of 
such a tremendous percentage of the 
whole Middle and Western sections of 
America, is sure to become more and 



. (159) 

more important as tlia spirit of Ms- 
tory awakens and arises in the robust 
and active, enterprising peoples of all 
those regions. Those Western peo- 
ple apply to us now for the early his- 
tory of their race, and will do so more 
and more. We, here in Lancaster 
county, hold a much more dignified 
and eminent place, historically, socio- 
logically,genealogically and economic- 
ally, than we now realize. Great uni- 
versities and libraries and other or- 
ganizations apply to us for their for- 
mer history, too. 

We ought to own the originals of 
these lists, but that cannot be, for the 
owner (Mr. Cope) will not part with 
them, nor leave them to us at his 
death. 

The lists which I have copied do not 
seem to contain all of the names of 
the male adults living here at the 
time. Then, too, for a year or two 
several names disappear and again 
appear in later years. It seems cer- 
tain that a number of persons living 
on the extreme outskirts were missed 
in taking lists. The lists are confined 
to the townships I have named. There 
were people living here, not in the 
townships, as organized, but rather 
in the wilds, and they were missed. 
Then, too, a number lived across the 
Susquehanna, and, were not taken into 
account because they were not ascer- 
tainable; and because Maryland 
claimed them, and for some years they 
adhered to Maryland. There is evi- 
dence of carelessness, too, in other 
respects, in the lists. And it may be 
that persons of very little property, 
paying little tax, were not taken. In 
fact, no one who lived on Pequea 
and Conestoga creeks were called upon 
for eight years after the original 
date of -settlement to pay any 
taxes— not from 1710 to 1718. My 
study into the many oflacial laxities 
and negligences during the first 



( 160 ) ' 

twelve years of settlement here makes 
it appear not unlikely that some citizens 
may have induced the assessor, for 
little consideration, to omit them. 

As to the people living here prior to 
the erection of our county in 1729, 
there are several sources of informa- 
tion. The letter of the original set- 
tlers here, dated 1710 in London, the 
statements of Melchoir Zeller, Hans 
Burki, and Benedict Brackbill, of 1710, 
giving lists of those going to Pennsyl- 
vania (Eshleman's German-Swiss An- 
nals, pp. 148 to 160), the names which 
appear in the 1711 migration to Hol- 
land and thence here (do., pp. 172, 184, 
188, 191), the land warrants found in 
the Pennsylvania Archives, Vol. 19, 
second series, the list in Rupp's 30,- 
000 names, dating before 1718, and the 
naturalization list of those arriving in 
Lancaster county before 1718, in Vol. 
4, Statutes-at-Large, p. 147, the rec- 
ords of the great immigration of 1717 
(German-Swiss Annals, p. 203, etc.,), 
and the assessment lists above refer- 
red to of 1718 to 1726, inclusive, are 
the chief of these source books. There 
are seventy names on the naturaliza- 
tion list of those who came over prior 
to 1718 that do not appear on the as- 
sessment list of 1718. This shows the 
lists are not complete. Some of these 
seventy names, however, do appear on 
the assessment of 1719 and others on 
later lists. But it seems strange that 
they do not appear on the list of 1718, 
or on the other lists here produced. 

The following persons who were 
here before 1718 (as is statd in the 
naturalization act above referred to), 
and whose names do not appear on 
the assessment of 1718-19, are:

The tax rate this year was three 
pence per pound valuation; and the 
same can be easily calculated on the 
above values. 

This year 1720-21 Pequea township 
was formed out of the eastern part of 
Conestoga. It thus became the second 
township in what is now Lancaster 
county. 

1721. 

"Collectors in the several districts 
in the county — what they are charged 
with this present year 1721."

MINUTES OF SEPTEMBER MEETING. 



Lancaster, Sept. 1, 1916. 

The membership of the Lancaster 
County Historical Society took a big 
jump on Friday night when the names 
of twenty-seven persons, both in the 
city and county, were proposed. It 
was the largest number of applications 
ever presented at one meeting, and no 
doubt was brought about by the ef- 
forts being made to better acquaint 
the public with what the Society Is 
doing, notably through the annual 
outing held in June at Miss Grubb's 
place at Mt. Hope and the social func- 
tion held in May at the Brunswick. 

The Society resumed its work for 
the winter last evening with a good 
attendance of members. President

Hon. Thomas L. Montgomery, State 
Librarian, was elected an honorary 
member. 

D. F. Magee, Esq., asked for the 
assistance of the Society in a work 
the Board of County Commissioners is 
taking up, the cataloguing in conve- 
nient form of all the old documents 
in the Court House that relate to the 
early history of Lancaster county. 
The Commissioners have secured the 
assistance of the Bar Association and 
with the historians lending their help 
it is believed that the old records can 
be placed in such shape that their 
value can be greatly increased. The 
Society appointed Mr. Magee, Mr. Esh- 
leman and Mr. Arnold a committee to 
work with the Commissioners. The 



(198) 

work will be under the direction of 
Commissioner Magee. 

The paper of the evening was pre- 
pared and read by Mr. Eshleman and 
was based on the early assessments 
of the townships of Lancaster as 
found in the records of the Chester 
county Court House. These lists will 
prove of great value to the Society, 
especially in the matter of research, 
as they give the names of the very 
first settlers in this section. 

The annual pilgrimage of the Lan- 
caster County Historical Society was 
taken to the fine ancestral mansion 
of the Grubb family at Mount Hope, 
near the Lebanon county line, on Sat- 
urday, June 24. The historians and 
their friends, about three hundred in 
number, were entertained there as 
guests by Miss Daisy Elizabeth Brooke 
Grubb. They journeyed to the place 
by train and automobile and had a 
most enjoyable time on the historic 
premises. 

Miss Grubb proved, as always, a 
most gracious hostess. The early 
hours of the afternoon were given 
over to an informal reception and so- 
cial gathering. An interesting pro- 
gramme was rendered at 2 o'clock. 
Hon. Charles L Landis, presided. The 
main features were: A cornet solo, 
"Assembly;" singing, "America;" in- 
vocation by the Right Rev. James 
Henry Darlington, Bishop of the Dio- 
cese of Harrisburg in the Episcopal 
Church; address by T. Roberts Appel, 
Esq., "The History of Mount Hope 
Since 1784;" singing, "Columbia, The 
Gem of the Ocean;" an address, Col. 
James Burd," by Dr. John W. Jordan; 
singing, ^"Come,Thou Almighty King;" 
an address, "The Purpose of a Histori- 
cal Society," by Wm. H. Keller, Esq.; 
benediction by Rev. A. Alun Hughes; 
singing, "Auld Lang Syne;" and a 
cornet solo, "A Perfect Day." 



(199) 

In his excellent paper, Mr. Appel 
treated of tlie Grubb family at con- 
siderable length and dwelt upon the 
historic buildings on the premises. 
These are: The mansion-house, the 
chapel and the furnace. Speaking of 
these briefly, the speaker said in part: 

"The furnace was erected in 1784 
and 1785 by Peter Grubb (great grand- 
father of the present owner) a son of 
Peter Grubb, the pioneer and discover- 
er of the Cornwall Iron Hills and the 
builder of the furnace there and the 
forge at Hopewell on Hammer Creek, 
where he lived. The frunace stands 
to the east of the mansion-house, at 
the foot of a most picturesque ravine 
on the banks of the "Chickasalunga" 
and after being operated continuously 
and successfully as a charcoal iron 
furnace by the Grubb family for a 
round century, went out of blast in 
188.5 — a generation after its neighbor 
at "Elizabeth" and "Hopewell" and 
"Speedwell" forges on Hammer Creek 
censed to be operated. 

The mansion was erected in the 
year 1800 on a knell rising out of the 
foothills of the "South Mountain," 
along the highway leading from Lan- 
caster through Manheim and Corn- 
wall to Lebanon, by Henry Bates 
Grubb, owner of Mt. Hope Furnace, 
Mt. Vernon Furnace, Cordorus Iron 
Works, and the thousands of acres of 
land surrounding each, as well as 
Joint owner of Hopewell Forges and 
Cornwall Mine and Furnace. 

To the south, and separated from 
furnace and mansion by a park, of 
mid-England appearance, stands 
"Hope Church," built in 1845 by Har- 
riet Amelia Buckley Grubb, daughter 
of Daniel Buckley, ironmaster of 
"Brooke Forge" in Salisbury township, 
the widow of Henry Bates Grubb; 
since largely supported and maintain- 
ed by the Grubb family; lately en- 



(200) 

larged and improved by Miss Daisy 
Elizabeth Brooke Grubb, the present 
owner of the estates. 

"Hope Church" is the mother church 
of the Episcopal churches at Manheim, 
Lebanon and Colebrook, and with t' e 
ancestral home, receives, with the 
tenderest solicitude and affection, the 
care of our most gracious hostess on 
this occasion. 

Handsome and artistic souvenir 
booklets of the buildings and premises, 
and products of the furnaces in the 
past, were prepared for the visitors 
by Walter C. Hager. 

The committee which arranged the 
event consisted of Hon. Charles I. 
Landis, Chairman; Miss Daisy E. B. 
Grubb, Miss Martha B. Clark, A. K. 
Hostetter, L. B. Herr and Walter C. 
Hager.
