Mack's wife was a bright, beautiful Indian girl who was a great help 
to him in various treaties with the Indian tribes near his home at 
Rocton or Pecatonic, 111. In a letter to his sister Lovicy, after the 
death of this dearly beloved wife in September or October, 1847, he 
pays the highest tribute to her worth. He says : "You say you perceive 
by the notice in the paper that my wife died a Christian. Lovicy, if I 
know what a Christian is, she was one. She not only died a Chris- 
tian but she lived one. Not by profession, but by her every act, her 
every deed proclaimed her a follower of Christ. In her the hungry 
and naked have lost a benefactor, the sick a nurse, and I have lost a 
friend who taught me to reverence God, by doing good to his 
creatures."

mark in our Revolutionary history. Young Almon was his father's 
principal assistant in his business enterprises, and with the advantage 
of a thorough business and parental training, he settled in what was 
then the little hamlet of Rochester, and began business as a merchant 
on September i, 1830. He was married to Elvira Jamieson in 1827, 
who had been a ward of his parents. Although themselves childless, 
Mr. and Mrs. Mack performed the duty of parents to three orphaned 
children. He represented Oakland County in the legislature in 1848. 
He was tendered the secretaryship of the first Legislative Council 
but decHned on account of ill health. He also from time to time 
held various other local offices. Mr. Mack was a type of the true old 
fashioned gentleman. For twenty-five years before his death he was 
almost totally blind. Courteous to all, generous and kindly ever. He 
died at a ripe old age, Jan. 20, 1885, and would have been in the 
April following 80 years of age. The sermon he preached was his 
life, its application his death.

249716. Henry C. " 'The Law of Bank Checks,' by Henry C. Van 
Schaack of the Denver Bar, son of Mr. Peter VanSchaack of 
Chicago, is one of the most useful publications of the year. 
The author has presented a comprehensive statement of the law 
relating to bank checks as determined by the leading American 
and English courts. The application of legal principles to this 
department of business is clearly and briefly explained, and is 
accompanied at every point by reference to authorities, which 
shows the exhaustive research of the writer. When it is remem- 
bered that not less than ninety-five per cent of the banking busi- 
ness of the present time is carried on by means of checks the value 
of a thoroughly reliable and comprehensive work of reference to 
bank officials and employes will be appreciated. Mr. Van 
Schaack's book should find a welcome in every financial insti-

RECORDS OF VARIOUS PERSONS BEARING THE NAME OF DEY. 

285100. Lawrence Dey, 1669. Jan Laurens Duyts, who left 
the town this year, was the son of Laurens Duyts, nick-named Great 
Shoe, a Dane, b. in Holstein in 1610. The father was banished by 
Stuyvesant, an easy thing for him to do, and seldom wisely done,- 
but Duyts' case would seem to have been an exception. He died at 
Bergen, Jan. 14, 1668, leaving two sons, Jan and Hans. Kuyter 
stood as godfather for both at their baptism. Hans was born in 
1644 and lived at Harlem in 1667. His daughter Catharine, born 
in 1674, married, in 1688, Joost Paulding from Cassant, Holland, 
who went to Westchester and was the ancestor of John Paulding, 
one of Andrd's captors ; also of Gen. William Paulding, formerly 
Mayor of New York. Jan Duyts bore a good name at Harlem and 
did not deserve the taunt uttered one day by Jeanne de Ruine in 
presence of Morris Peterson, "You schelm, loop by you vaar Deen." 
"You villain, run to your father Dane." Morris testified that Jan said 
nothing to provoke it. He was then twenty years old and the same 
year, Nov. 22, 1662, bought of Lubbert Gerritsen the house and 
bouwery formerly of Matthys Boon, engaging to pay for it 300 gl. 
He sold out the next year and Resolved Waldron soon after got this 
property. In 1667 Duyts was working for Gerritsen aforesaid and 
married that year; but on Jan. 8, 1669, he leased a farm at Dutch 
Kills from John Parcell and lived there when he married a second 
time in 1673. His wives were Jeannetie Jeuriaens, from Bois le Due, 
and Neeltie Adriaens, from Breda; the last married, in 1679, Hen- 
drick VanDyck of New Utrecht. Duyts left some property to his 
two children, Laurens and Annetie. 1663, Jan Laurens and others

BOARD FAMILY IN ENGLAND. 

Memorandum on the family of Boord, Board, Board, Borde, by 
Harry Percy Boord, M.A., Cambridge : 

The name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word Bord which 
had an extensive original meaning. (I.) a board, table ; (H.) a ship ; 
(III.) and at one time a wooden cottage. It is from the last that the 
name is directly derived. The term Bordarii was used down to the 
end of the Xlllth. century for a particular class of tenant. Dr. Bar- 
ber in "British family names" mentions one Borda as among those 
holding land in time of King Edward, the confessor. The earliest 
forms of spelling the name with earliest date: Borde, 1189; Bourd, 



ii68rf History of the Board Family. 

1327; Boord, 1413; Board, 1597. Important members of the family : 
Dr. Andrew Boorde, "poet, physician, courtier and priest," as Lower 
styles him, was born about 1 490 in Sussex, chiefly known as the original 
"Merry Andrew." Dr. John Boord, LL.D., senior fellow of Trinity 
Hall, Cambridge, and Kings Professor of Laws there. Born at Bats- 
combe Co., Somerset, 1634: died before 1686. My branch of the 
family descended from his brother Samuel. Sir Stephen Boord, 
Knight, born in 1563; built Boord Hill in the parish of Cuckfield, 
Sussex. Subscribed, 1588, £^b for defense of the country against 
Spanish Armada. Sheriff for County Sussex, 1628. Knighted, July 
23, 1603; died, 1630. Sir William Boord, Baronet (my father), 
present head of our branch of the family, born 1838. M.P. for 
Greenwich, 1 873-1 895. Created a baronet by her late majesty, Feb. 
18, 1896, "to hold to him g.nd the heirs male of his body." The 
family from whom I descend came from Batscombe in Somersetshire, 
where they have been land owners since a very early date. In I. 
Ed. III., Robert Bourde was holding land at Batscombe (1327). My 
father still holds land there as trustee for an Australian branch of 
the family. The Sussex branch appears at Cuckfield in one Stephen 
Boord, 1528, who appears 32 Hen. VIII. (1540), as a collector of 
the rape of Lewes. I have traced a branch of the family to Devon- 
shire. On Feb. 27, 1831, William Bord left for New York (I have a 
note, 69 Federal St.), with his wife and family, he had previously 
lived at Bruton, Co. Somerset. He had married the granddaughter 
of Thomas Southcot, of Brewham Lodge, Esq. He had three sons 
and two daughters. A branch of the family appears for a short time 
in Suffolk but are now extinct. The pedigree I give is duly proved 
and recorded in the College of Arms, London. I inclose a book 
plate to show the arms of the family as now used.

Dear Sir : — I have been in correspondence with a Mr. Buckner 
Board of 107 E. College St., Louisville, Kentucky, on the history of 
the Boord, Board or Borde family, and he has sent me a circular

subject and if, as I understand is the case, you are writing a history 
of this family, I have a large mass of material collected by two mem- 
bers of my family, 1684 and 1836, myself and several eminent gene- 
alogists, the late Mr. M. A. Lower, of Lewis, and others. Should 
you care to write to me I should be very pleased to hear from you.

^YREs History. 



In Thorpe's catalogue of the deeds of Battle Abbey we find the 
following: "Ayres, or Eyre. The first of this family was named 
Truelove, who was one of the followers of William the Conqueror. 
At the battle of Hastings, A.D. 1066, Duke William was thrown from 
his horse and his helmet beaten into his face ; which Truelove ob- 
serving, pulled it off and horsed him again. The Duke told him, 
'Thou shalt be from Truelove called Eyre (or air), because thou hast 
given me the air I breathe.' After the battle the Duke, on inquiry 
respecting him, found him severely wounded (the leg and thigh hav- 
ing been struck off). He ordered him the utmost care, and on his 
recovery gave him lands in Derby in reward for his services, and the 
leg and thigh in armor cut off for his crest, an honorary badge yet 
worn by all the Eyres in England." In Volume 10, ist series of 
Notes and Queries, is the following, taken from Rhodes' Peak Scen- 
ery, page 244: "The Eyres is one of the oldest families in Derby- 
shire, where they have continued to reside more than seven hundred 
years, as appears from the following curious extract from an old 
pedigree which is preserved a.i Hassop" — (here follows the preceding 
matter down to the word Derby, when follows) : "and the seat he 
lived at he called Hope, because he had hope in the greatest extrem- 
ity." Coat of Arms of the family now at Rampton Arms : Arg. on a 
chev. sa. three-quarter foils ; or. Crest : a leg in armour, couped at 
the thigh and spur. Seat : Rampton. Mr. Carman says : "I have 
the coats of arms of all the families in England, but they vary but 
little from the above, and I am inclined to believe, for reasons which 
I will give, that the original Derby family now represented at Ramp- 
ton is the one from which our Ayer is descended. From the com-

parison of coats of arms, and some tedious researches in the old 
country histories of England, I am convinced a family of Eyre of 
Wiltshire, England, is a branch of the Rampton family, and I give 
you Eyre of Wiltshire : The old Wiltshire family of Eyre enjoyed for 
several centuries the highest distinction within its native county, and 
was of consideration in the State, most of its chiefs having had seats 
in ParUament, and two of them learned in the law, upon the bench, 
one a Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas. A branch, too, 
which emigrated to Ireland attained the peerage of that country, i. 
Thomas Eyer, Esq., of New Sarum, lineally descended from Hum- 
phrey LeHeyer, of Bronham, Wilts., held lands in Wimborn, County 
of Dorset, in 21st year of the reign of Elizabeth. He married Eliza- 
beth, daughter of John Rogers, Esq., of Poole, and had issue: 2. 
Robert, his heir, born 1559. 3. Giles, of Brickworth in Wiltshire, 
from whom came the family of the extinct Lord Eyer of Ireland. (He 
obtained the peerage of Ireland.) 4. Christopher, born 1578, foun- 
der of Eyre's Hospital at Sarum. 5. Thomas, born 1580. Mayor 
of Sarum, 1620. 6. WilHam, born 1585. Barrister at Law. 7.

FIRST GENERATION. 

JOHN AYRES OF SAUSBURY, IPSWICH AND HAVERHILL, 
MASS. (1635.) 

320000. John Ayer. 160000. 198000. He was the sixth 
child and youngest son of Thomas Eyre of Wiltshire, England, and 
his wife EUzabeth Rogers, which Thomas was 5th in descent from 
Galpedus LeHeyer in the time of Edward II. Among the emigrants 
arriving in Massachusetts Bay Colony from England during the time 
that Charles I. ruled without a Parliament, 16-1640, were large num- 
bers from the vicinity of Ipswich and Haverhill in Suffolk, Salisbury 
in Wiltshire and Newbury. In establishing themselves in the new 
country, they named their settlements after their English home towns. 
Thus Ipswich in Massachusetts was founded in 1633, Newbury in 
1635, Salisbury in 1639, and Haverhill in 1640. Conspicuous 



First Generation. 1171 

among these early settlers was John Ayer, who was born in Wiltshire 
England, possibly in Suifolk in 1592. He died March 31, 1657, at 
Haverhill, Mass., leaving a wife named Hannah (?) who died July 
13, 1686, aged 88. He is thought to have reached New England 
in 1637. He brought with him eight children and settled probably 
first at Salisbury as he was living there in 1640; he removed to 
Ipswich prior to 1645 and in that year became a resident of Haver- 
hill, where he remained until his death in 1657. John's name gen- 
erally appears in the Massachusetts record as Ayer, but is also fre- 
quently inscribed Eyres. He and his three brothers, Robert, Thomas 
and Peter were leading men among the earliest settlers of Haverhill. 
The descendants of these four brothers are very numerous (5000). 
In 1700 it was supposed that nearly one-third of the inhabitants of 
Haverhill township were Ayers. John built a house which together 
with its land was valued in 1646 at ^160. The plot faced the main 
highway on the north, its southern boundary being the Merrimac 
river. Since that time it has been continuously occupied by his de- 
scendants, the late Captain John Ayer, its last owner, having been of 
the sixth generation. In 1645 John Ayer was among Haverhill's 
thirty- two land owners; on Feb. 13, 1647, he was fined for not 
attending the town meeting in season; on June 7, 1652, he received 
eight acres as his proportion of the second distribution of town lands ; 
on March 12, 1657, nineteen days before his death he executed his 
will which mentions six sons and three daughters all living at Haver- 
hill. The will was attested by Henry Palmer, the father of the wife 
of John's son Robert and a fairly equitable division was made 
among the children of the real estate, which comprised two dwellings 
and a number of outlying parcels of land. His wife was given the 
homestead during her life and the major part of his cattle and per- 
sonal property. The estate was appraised at ;^2 48-5-0. The items 
of the inventory are here given to show the character of goods and 
chattels possessed by a well-to-do New England Yeoman of two hun- 
dred years ago :

Second Generation. 1173 

The homestead at the death of the widow was to go to the 
testator's oldest son John chargeable with certain cash payments 
to his brothers and sisters. In the above inventory no mention is 
made of a second house and house lot which by the will was given to 
his son Nathaniel when his apprenticeship is out with his master 
French, and during Hannah Ayres' widowhood she appears to have 
been active in affairs, purchased and sold land, and previous to 1675 
built a new house "on the commons"- 

SECOND GENERATION. 

320100. John Ayer. (John.) 160001. He was born in 
England in 1623 and died after 1700; married first time May 5, 
1646, Sarah, daughter of John Williams ; married second time March 
26, 1663, Mary, daughter of John Wooddam. In 1645 he was one 
of Haverhill's thirty-two land owners and in 1650 his property was 
valued at ;£^8o. His name repeatedly appears in Haverhill records 
in connection with lands and in 1660 he built a new house. He was 
a famous hunter and trapper and his skill and sagacity in woodcraft 
equalled that of the Indians, with whom he was in constant rivalry 
that not infrequently it amounted to an open warfare. About 1665 a 
serious trouble with the natives obliged him in order to save his life 
to remove secretly and without his family to Connecticut, where he 
settled in what is now known as Ayers' Gap, in the vicinity of Frank- 
lin, where he lived by himself pursuing his favorite vocation and 
many traditions of his adventures with Indians and wild beasts form 
the theme of stories related of him by his posterity. These tales 
delineate him as a man of great endurance, heroic fortitude and 
striking eccentricities. Just before his death his son Joseph joined 
his father in Connecticut bringing with him his children Jpseph and 
Timothy. Their descendants still remain in Franklin. He was 
killed by the Indians when they destroyed the town of Brookfield, 
Mass., Aug. 3, 1675. Their children were all born at Haverhill, Mass.

was a farmer and his house and land the year of his marriage was

320170. Obadiah Ayer. (John.) 160100. He was the 
founder of the Ayers family of New Jersey. His father, John Ayer, 
came from Hampton on ship James for Newbury, April 5, 1635. 
Obadiah married, March 19, 1660 (o. 1661), Hannah, daughter of 
John Pike of Newbury, Mass., removed to New Jersey some time be- 
tween the years 1665-9 ^^^ "^'^d there Nov. 14, 1694. His wife 
was born April 26, 1643, ^^ Newbury, Mass. She died May 31, 
1689. Hannah Pike, the wife of Obadiah Ayers, was the daughter 
and third child of John Pike of Newbury, Mass., he being the son 
and second child of John Pike who emigrated from Langford, Eng., 
and died in Salisbury, Mass., in 1654. John Pike married (ist), 
Mary (?), by whom he had nine children. He married (2nd) (1685), 
Elizabeth Randolph of Piscataway, N. J. He died in Jan., 1689, and 
was the ancestor of Major Zebulon Pike of the Revolutionary War, 
and of his son, Gen. Zebulon Montgomery Pike, who wrote his name 
among the clouds on one of the loftiest peaks of the Rocky Moun- 
tains. Gen. Pike was born at Lamberton, Mercer Co., N. J., in 1779, 
of Woodbridge parents. Distinguished himself in the War of 181 2 
and was killed in action at York, Canada, April 27, 1813. Between 
1665 and 1667 John Pike removed from Newbury, Mass., to Middle- 
sex Co., N. J. The occasion and manner of his migration being as 
follows : When Charles H. ascended the throne of England he was 
lavish in his rewards to those who had been faithful to the cause of 
the Stuarts during the time of the Commonwealth. Among such 
persons were Lord John Berkeley and Sir George Carteret, to whom 



Second Generation. 1177 

through his brother James, the Duke of York, he granted all that 
portion of the brown lands in North America, lying between the 
mouth of the Hudson and Delaware rivers embracing what has since 
been known as New Jersey. These lords-proprietors dispatched to 
their new possessions as Governor, Philip Carteret a fourth cousin of 
Sir George Carteret. He arrived in August, 1665, establishing his 
seat of government at Elizabethtown which he named in honor of the 
lady Elizabeth, the wife of his cousin Sir George. Four families at 
his capitol, together with the small Dutch settlement of Bergen, con- 
stituted about all his people he had to govern. In order to secure a 
population for his wilderness provinces he sent agents to New Eng- 
land, who published what was known as the "Concessions and agree- 
ments of the Lords-proprietors" which offered liberal inducements to 
settle such as property in estates and liberty in religion. The imme- 
diate result of these publications was the establishment of Wood- 
bridge, Piscataway and Newark. Among the earliest arrivals in New 
Jersey were John Pike, Daniel Pierce and seven associates from 
Newbury, Mass. They entered into an agreement on Dec. 11, 1666, 
whereby on Dec. 3, 1667, they received a grant of land including 
what is now the township of Woodbridge. They, as representatives 
of at least sixty families which they induced to move to New Jersey, 
on the ist of June, 1669, were granted a charter creating a town- 
ship covering six miles square. The name of the new settlement was 
derived from their late pastor, John Woodbridge, of Newbury, Mass. 
John Pike appears to have been the patriarch of the new settlement. 
In the division of the town lands in Dec, 1667, he received 308 
acres among the largest grants made. He was president of the town 
before 1671. In that year he was chosen one of Gov. Carteret's 
counsel and in 1675 he was appointed captain of the militia. Among 
the sixty families that John Pike brought to Woodbridge from that of 
Newbury was that of his son-in-law, Obadiah Ayers, which besides 
the father embraced the wife Hannah and two children, John seven 
years old and Samuel less than two. Obadiah Ayers probably 
reached Woodbridge in the summer of 1669 as he sold his homestead 
in Haverhill, Mass., to his brother Nathaniel, May 5, 1669, and on 
the 8th of Aug. of the same year he received a grant of 171 acres. 
These lands embraced 120 acres of upland to the northward of 
Langston's plains or farms, 30 acres of marsh on the Raritan mead- 



1 1 78 History of the Ayres Family.. 

ows, 5 acres of meadow on the north side of the mouth of the 
Papiack creek and a house lot of i6 acres, bounded on the south by 
the house lot of his brother-in-law, Richard Worth, on the west by 
the highway and on the east by a "fresh brook running at the foot of 
Strabara Hill". This Strabara Hill is the place now owned by 
Hampton Centre in Woodbridge and a small creek divides it from 
the former house lot of .Obadiah Ayers. The certificate of survey of 
these lands recites that the several parcels were laid out "By virtue 
of the Governor's warrant" for "Obediah Heirs". In like manner 
his name is spelled on several legal documents though generally he 
is mentioned as Ayers. He seems to have been a man of affairs, his 
name frequently appears as grantee and grantor in conveyances of 
land; in 1684 he was a member of the Grand Jury and in the same 
year the town authorities laid out for him an addition of 8 acres of 
upland at Shingle Hill. In this survey his name is inscribed "Oba- 
diah Hayres". On the 30th of July, 1673, a Dutch squadron ap- 
peared at New York and with but little or no opposition from the 
English secured the submission of that city and all its dependencies. 
New Jersey in common with all the territory formerly known to the 
Dutch as New Netherlands again became tributary to Holland. An- 
thony Colve was appointed Governor with Peter Alricks as deputy 
who held their offices till the country was restored to England on the 
31st of Oct., 1674, in consequence of the treaty of Westminster, 19th 
of Feb., 1674. The people of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Dela- 
ware were required to send deputies to New York to make a declara- 
tion of submission to the Dutch. On the ist of Sept., 1673, the 
inhabitants of Woodbridge submitted to the Dutch council of war at 
Fort William Hendrick the names of six leading citizens from whom 
schepens or magistrates were to be selected as representatives of the 
new government. The three men chosen on Aug. 24 and sworn in 
on Sept. I, 1673, were recorded as "Samuel Dennis, Obediah Hoits, 
and Stephen Kent". The name of Hoits was the Dutch rendering 
of Haires, which was the equally erroneous manner that the name 
Ayers was submitted to the council. On Jan. 16, 1686, "Obediah 
Hayres" was chosen constable, and on the loth of Nov., 1694, four 
days before he died, he executed his will. The signature is not auto- 
graphic, but is inscribed "Obediah Aires (-|-) mark". As he had 
held public offices of importance we may conclude that he made his 



Second Generation. 1179 

mark because of infirmity and not from lack of education. It must 
be acknowledged, however, that in several other instances he signed 
legal documents in this manner. The history of the "Ayres" family 
cannot be completed without reference to the settlement of Wood- 
bridge, N. J. Lord Carteret having obtained'grant and power over 
this part of New Jersey, sent hither his brother, afterwards Governor 
Carteret, to manage the same in his own way. Carteret arrived here 
from England in the fall of 1665. A large number followed him, 
chiefly from two places in New England. The original settlers, 
therefore, came from the town of Newbury, Mass., thirty-four miles 
northeast of Boston. The graves of the ancestry of the Ayres family 
may still be found there, and these are the people from whom came 
the original settlers of Woodbridge and Piscataway townships. In 
accord with an agreement made Dec, 1666, there was included an 
area of six miles square. Titles for lands within the bounds of the 
townships were given principally in the year 1670. Among the 
seventy who acquired titles for land we find the name of "Ayres". 
Obadiah Ayers was in Newbury, Mass., in 1663 ; probably died in 
Woodbridge, N. J., Nov. 14, 1694, whither he had removed; in 1671 
he was a juryman in the first court in Woodbury township. Obadiah 
Hoiis was one of six schepens in a council of war at Fort William 
Hendricks, Aug. 24, 1673. Obadiah Hayers was a constable.

deacon and captain of militia. He performed valiant service against 
the Indians in King Philip's War. On the 27th of August, 1708, 
Haverhill, then a compact village of about thirty houses, was at- 
tacked and almost entirely destroyed by Algonquins, St. Francois and 
the Penobscot Indians under the direction of the French forces from 
Canada. Sixteen of the inhabitants were massacred, including the 
pastor, Rev. Benjamin Rolfe and family, many made captives and 
when the enemy retreated they were followed by Captain Samuel 
Ayer with a company of twenty men who, though outnumbered thir- 
teen to one, attacked them fearlessly killing nine of their number and 
retaking several prisoners. The Captain was shot in the groin andl 
died just as his son reached the scene with reinforcements. He 
married Elizabeth Tuttle (daughter of Simon Tuttle).

321 125. John Ayer. (Obadiah", John'.) 160500. He was 
born at Newbury, Mass., March 2, 1663. He married, Feb. 24, 1690 
(o. 1689), Mary Walker. She died at Basking Ridge, N. J., in 1732. 
He received by his father's will sixty acres of farm land at Wood- 
bridge, N. J., together with his right of commonage and ten acres of 
land the father had bought of John Clement. On Feb. 28, 1708, 
John Ayres was admitted to membership in the Presbyterian Church 
at Woodbridge, under the pastorate of Nathaniel Wade, his wife be- 
coming a member on Dec. 26 of the same year. In 17 17 he pur- 
chased land in Somerset Co., N. J., and within three years he removed 
to and permanently settled at Basking Ridge in Bernard's township 
in that county, where he undoubtedly was among the very early 
settlers. He was accompanied by all his children excepting his 
second son Thomas, who had married and remained at Woodbridge. 
John Ayers and his sons became active and leading men in that 
vicinity, especially in affairs connected with the Basking Ridge Pres- 
byterian Church. In 1731 he conveyed to seven trustees of that 
congregation, one of whom being his son Obediah, one and one-half 
acres of land in the center of which, surrounded by a grove of trees, 
stood a log meeting house. This primitive structure was superseded 
in 1747 by a frame edifice that remained for 90 years. For 120 
years John Ayers' descendants were identified with the interests of 
the congregation, as late as 1818 four families being members thereof. 
Rev. John C. Rankin in an historical address, preached Aug. 11, 
1872, in speaking of John Ayers and his posterity, says: "Now the 
very name has passed away from us ; though many of the descend- 
ants are doing good in other places. We owe them a debt of grati-

I220 History of the Ayres Family. 

married (2nd), in 1869, Louise Bannister (daughter of Caleb Bannis- 
ter of Phelps, N. Y.). She was born Aug. 10, 1835. He resided in 
Penn Yan, N. Y., 56 years, except a short residence in the West. He 
died Nov. 23, 1887. Louise Bannister died April 26, 1899. Stephen 
Beckwith Avres was born at Trumansburg, N. Y., Nov. 6, 1819, and 
lived more than sixty-eight years. While yet a boy he moved from 
the old home and entered the employ of his older brother, Lewis, 
who was in business in Penn Yan and postmaster there a considera- 
ble time. Later he entered upon a business career for himself, hav- 
ing accumulated sufficient capital by careful savings. After being a 
merchant in his adopted village for a time, with varying success, he 
removed to Fort Dodge, Iowa, then a real frontier town. There he 
met with great financial prosperity, but was saddened by the death of 
his wife in 1865. His loneliness induced a sale of his western prop- 
erty and a return to the State of New York. For a time he was con- 
nected with his brother Socrates in Elmira, but finally returned to his 
earlier home in Penn Yan in 1868, living there the remainder of his 
days. Mr. Ayres was a man of strong convictions, a good man and 
a public spirited citizen. His literary attainments were considerable. 
He had educated himself and was fond of the best in both poetry 
and prose. He collected an excellent library and enjoyed it. While 
having no political aspirations for himself, he took an interest in all 
the questions of the day. Like many Free-Soil Democrats he joined 
the Republican party at its inception. He declined a nomination for 
Congress by the Republicans in a reasonably sure district, and later 
accepted one from the Prohibitionists, when it seemed his duty to do 
so. In 1855 he was married to Artemesia Dunlap of Ovid, N. Y., 
who died ten years later. In 1869 he was married for a second time 
to Louise Bannister of Lima, who survived him. Both of his wives 
were exceptionally intelligent and excellent women, and his married 
life was in each, instance happy in the extreme. He possessed an 
affectionate, lovable disposition, taking his greatest pleasure in mak- 
ing his family content. Mr. Ayres would have been the last to wish 
himself made the subject of panegyric, but it would seem that in such 
characters as his, conscientious, industrious, moral and sympathetic, 
are all the qualities which make the good citizen. Of such men our 
country can never have too many.

College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, and desiring to 
procure a practical knowledge of medicine he purchased a drug store 
in New York and conducted the same during the first year of his 
college career. When graduated as an M.D.; he secured an appoint- 
ment as surgeon on board one of the Black Ball Packet line of steam-, 
ers plying between New York and Liverpool. Upon severing his 
connection with the steamship company he began the practice of 
medicine in New York, and in 1872 he moved to Fairview. In 1873 
he was appointed First Lieutenant and Assistant Surgeon to the 
Second Battalion, National Guard, and in 1876 was promoted to 
Major and Surgeon. 

"Dr. Ayers was one of the leaders in the organization of the 
Fairview Borough, which occurred in 1894, and was elected its first 
mayor and has continually held the office since that time being re- 
elected again this spring. Dr. Ayres has been president of the 
Ridgefield Township Protective Association since 1882, and was 
appointed special police justice by Governor Abbett. He is a promi- 
nent member of the Bergen County Medical Society and an ex-presi- 
dent of that organization. He also devotes considerable time to real 
estate and was one of the founders of Grantwood and Grantwood 
Heights, two rapidly growing villages on the Palisades overlooking 
the Hudson river. He is president of both the Chffside and Grant- 
wood Heights Land Companies."

In 1695 he was chosen Haverhill's first Town Treasurer. In 1700 
he was chosen to fill a vacancy on the committee for the "rights of 
any in the common land," said vacancy being caused by the death 
of his uncle, "Cornet Peter Ayer.'' Haverhill was attacked by In- 
dians Aug. 29, 1708, and after they began their retreat Capt. Ayer 
collected a body of twenty men, pursued and overtook them as they 
were entering the forest, when the Indians turned and gave battle. 
Capt. Ayer was soon reinforced by a party commanded by his son 
and after an hour's severe fighting, drove the enemy from the field. 
Capt. Ayer was killed before the arrival of the reinforcements, being 
shot through the groin, "and being a large, robust man, bled pro- 
fusely." He was buried near Rev. Benj. Rolfe, Capt. Wainwright

iVYRES History. 

JOHN AVER OF HAVERHILL, MASS. (1635). 



In Volume 10, ist series of Notes and Queries, is the following 
taken from "Rhodes Peak scenery" page 244. "The Eyres is one 
of the oldest families in Derbyshire where they have continued to re- 
side more than seven hundred years. The seat of Humphrey Lee 
Heyr called Hope because he had hope in the greatest extremity. 

From Burke's "General Armory of England." Eyre. (Bromham. 
Wedhampton, Chalfield, New House, etc.. County Wilts, descended 
from Humphrey LeHeyer of Bromham, whose great grandson, Gal- 
fridus de Eyre of Bromham, was living tempo Edward II. The de- 
rivative branches were the Eyres of Botley Grange, County Hants, 
the Eyres of Eyre Court Castle, County Galway, of whom was Lord 
Eyre, and Eyres of Macroom, County Cork.) 

The coat-of-arms of all the families in England vary but little 
and the original Derby family now represented at Rampton is the 
one from which John Ayer of Haverhill, Mass., descended. 

From comparison of coats-of-arms and some tedious researches 
in the old country histories of England it is certain that a family of 
Eyre of Wiltshire, England, is a branch of the Rampton family. 

The old Wiltshire family of Eyre enjoyed for several centuries 
the highest distinction within its native country and was of considera- 
tion in the State, most of its chiefs having had seats in Parliament, 
and two of them learned in the law, upon the bench, — one a Lord 
Chief Justice of the Common Pleas, a branch to which emigrated to 
Ireland, attained the peerage of that Kingdom. 

Thomas Eyre, Esq., of New Sarum, lineally descended from 
Humphrey LeHeyer of Bromham, Wilts, held lands in Wimborn,

bury), in 1640-41. In the Archives of Boston, no date indexed 1639, 
we find "the names of those who have tolls and proportions granted 
for towne of Colchester, in first division" the name of John Eyers. 
"This is a true copie of the original list taken out of the old book of 
records for Salisbury as attests Vera Copia Atest. Thos. Bradbury 
sec. Edward Rawson Secretary." According to the first division of 
ye towne of Salisburie there was granted unto John Ayers, two acres

passed out of the Ayer name, and only the cellar of the old house 
and part of the flume on the dam of the pond was left to tell where 
once was heard children's voices and the grinding of grain. A new 
house had been built near where the old one stood, bv the new 
owner, but that, too, was going to decay, and the name of Ayer in 
Franklin is now (1902), only to be found in two families, both of 
whom are descendants of Timothy (6th). Residence, Franklin,

Eyre History. 

REV. GEORGE EYRE OF BURIvINGTON, N. J., AND PHILADEIvPHIA, 

PA. (1727). 



The first member of the Eyre family to settle in England was 
Humphrey le Heyr, who was a Knight of William the Conqueror 
and fought at the battle of Hastings, 1066, where he lost one of his 
legs. The old family of England from the time of William the Con- 
queror, were no doubt adherents of the Church of Rome until the 
Reformation, say, during the reign of Henry VHI. about 1534, but a 
large number of the branches from the original stock remained 
Roman Catholics, especially those who settled in Ireland. The 
Eyre's of England, with few exceptions, belonged to the established 
church of England and the Eyre's of Ireland were in every case 
strict Roman Catholics. 

Among the family in England there have been many who were 
titled and held positions of honor under the government. One a peer of 
the realm, who became Lord Eyre of Eyre Court Castle, Galway, Ire- 
land. One Lord Chief Justice of Wiltshire. One Lieutenant 
General. One Governor of Canada, another Governor of Jamaica. 
Several members of Parliament. Many Counts and Barons. Many 
of them admirals of the Royal Navy and officers in the army. 

One of the Wiltshire family, William Eyre of Wedhampton in 
Wiltshire, was chosen Prior of Christ Church in Hants, in 1502. 

Francis Eyre, 2nd son of Sir Samuel Eyre, was Canon of 
Sarum and died Oct. 28, 1738, aged 68 yea,rs. 

Samuel Eyre of Essex, 2nd son of the Right Hon. Sir Robert 
Eyre, Chancellor to the Prince of Wales, George II. and eventually 
Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, was a Doctor of 
Divinity and died Dec. 2, 1742.

The following account of a visit to the home of the Eyre 
family in England was written by Rev. William Elliott GrifEs, D.D., 
L.H.D. : 

As is shown so clearly in Prof. Edward Arber's book "The 
Story of the Pilgrim Fathers, "1606-1626, A. D., as told by them- 
selves, their friends, and their enemies," Worksop is in the south- 
western corner of the Pilgrim District in England, with East Retford 
on the southeast, Gainsboro in the northeast, and Scrooby in the 
northwest, For years, that is, since 1850, Scrooby has been the 
Mecca of the descendants of the Pilgrim fathers and mothers, and 
in Gainsboro, in July, 1902, the John Robinson Memorial Church 
and the ancient Guild Hall were the centres of the ter-centennary 
memorial celebration. More strictly speaking, "the Pilgrim District" 
in England is that inclosed by the two streams, or rivers, Ryton and 
Idle, which flow together and at Bawtry form the boundary of those 
three counties, York, Lincoln and Nottingham, "where they bordered 
closest together," which have furnished the world with the cradle 
land of a great nation. 

In the great movement of the human mind which we call the 
Reformation, some of the Nevilles and some of the Eyres took the 
old or Catholic side, and others the new or Reformed. After the 
shaking and sifting that went on from the time of the Tudors to the 
Hanoverians, some remained with the free churches and some with 
the political or state church of England. Large numbers of the 



1498 History of the Ayres Family. 

English Eyres are to this day Roman Catholics and many of them 
have followed the military profession. Of the churches at Rampton 
and Babworth, where the graves, memorial stones, bronzes, mural 
tablets, and stained glass windows commemorating the life and 
works of the Eyres are numerous and beautiful, the writer will 
speak further on. 

When the ancient ideas of church government — so old that they 
seemed entirely new and dangerously novel — reached "the Pilgrim 
district," they were stigmatized by the ecclesiastics in power as 
"Brownism," and "the Separatists had not long to wait to see the 
bloodhound's teeth." One Gervase Nevyle, who was charged by 
the archbishop of York as being "one of the sect of Baroist or 
Brownist, holding and maintaining erroneous opinions and doctrines," 
and in March, 1607, the archbishop's messenger William Blanchard 
was sent to apprehend him. It is quite probable that this "Gervase 
Nevyle" was kinsman to the writer's ancestors, the Eyres. What 
follows is from the book "The Pilgrims in Their Three Homes, 
England, Holland and America," which contains the fullest account 
yet written of the life of the Pilgrims while in Holland. 

"For such schismatical obstinacy and irreligion he was to be de- 
livered by straight warrant 'to the hands, ward and safe custody of 
the Keeper of His Majesty's Castle of York.' The accused ap- 
peared and made answer, March 22. The entry is in thpse words, 
"Office against Jervase Nevyle of Scrobie dio: Ebor." (diocese of 
York). The names of the informers who demanded that Richard 
Jackson and William Brewster, of Scrooby, gentlemen charged with 
Brownism, and later for not appearing 'upon lawful summons at the 
collegiate church of Southwell,' are also given. In the first hunt 
the seekers were unable to find their game, probably because the 
men were at that hour in the jail at Boston. The second attempt 
failed likewise, for they were probably then in Holland. The war- 
rants issued for the arrest of Brewster are dated September 15 and 
December i, 1607. A 'very dangerous schismatical Separatist, 
Brownist and irreligious subject' is the bishop's description of each 
gentleman." 

On the 25th day of May, 1897, the first American Ambassador 
to Great Britain, at the end of his official service, the Hon. Thomas 
Francis Bayard, also a distant relative of the writer, delivered to 



Eyre History. 1499 

Governor Roger Wolcott of Massachusetts the original manuscript 
of Governor William Bradford's "History of Plymouth Plantation" 
in which the story of the Pilgrim Fathers is told by one of them- 
selves. 

It was in June, 1891, as the chosen delegate from the National 
Council of the Congregational Churches of America to the World's 
International Congregational Council meeting in London, that the 
writer made his second journey to England and Holland, this time 
to make researches into the history of the Pilgrim Fathers more par- 
ticularly, but also into the genealogy of the Eyre family. He spent 
several weeks in Amsterdam, Leyden, Delfshaven and many other 
places associated with Pilgrim history and in the archives where 
their names, as taxpayers, property owners, citizens, as betrothed 
and married, as living and dead, appear. He was armed in 1891 
with letters from the secretary of state, the postmaster-general, the 
governor of Massachusetts and other prominent Americans, which 
opened many a door into the hospitalities of the homes of England 
and Holland. 

In the following year he went again to Holland and England, 
visiting Raynham Hall (the seat of the Townsends), Gainsboro, 
Cambridge, and other historic places. Yet it was not until 1895, in 
another visit to Holland and England, that apart from archives and 
libraries, the writer could cry Eureka ! He found the old home of 
the Eyres. He spent a night in Scrooby, where the Pilgrim Fathers 
had worshiped in the old Manor House of the Archbishop of York, 
when Sir Edwin Sandys was the owner of the estate, and William 
Brewster was the lessee. 

In 1898 he visited Newark and the ruins of the old castle on 
the Trent river, in which and from which Colonel Gervaise Eyre 
commanded the cavalry for King Charles I. and near which place he 
was slain. Beautiful public gardens now cover the old site once so 
often stained with blood and long pestiferous with disease. Velvet- 
like grass, clinging vines and brilliant flowers make very lovely this 
place, so kindling to the imagination of the historical student. Ad- 
joining the garden, the traceried ruins and the deep underground 
rooms with their columns and arches, is the Gilstrap free library, 
where I found a rich collection of books of local history. Reading 
about the Eyres and the place where so many of them were buried. 



1500 History of the Ayres Family. 

and where once stood their ancestral halls, I determined to find 
them, even by the ambulando method. From Newark, I took a rail- 
road run over to Southwell, saw the wonderful great Norman church, 
spared by the Parliamentary troops during the civil war, now erected 
into a cathedral, and having a chapter house which in the wonderful 
detail of the stone carving and tracery is unique in the world. 

After dinner at the Saracen's Head Hotel I rode over to Ret- 
ford and inquired from the men in the ticket office where "Rampton" 
was. They did not know. Just as in a previous occasion, within 
fifty miles of Scrooby, I could not persuade the ticket agent that 
there was such a place. Happily, however, one of the station porters 
informed me that Rampton was a village a few miles beyond the 
railway station of Cottam. So riding to Cottam, I walked in paths 
over fields of wheat and oats, through pastures rich in cows and 
willows that bordered the streams, and at Rampton, a village con- 
taining 325 people, was courteously received by the rector Rev. 
Frank G. White. Not even Mr. Murray's "Hand-Book for Derby, 
Notts, Leicester, and Stafford shires" notices Rampton, though the 
"red book'' is rich in everything that relates to other picturesque de- 
tails in Robin Hood's country. Nor do the other Gazetteers men- 
tion the charming place. The little church built back in Norman 
times, which badly needed repairs, was used for worship every Sun- 
day. It is lined on both sides of the choir with tablets to the Eyres, 
one of them, a very modest brass, being in honor of the dashing 
cavalry commander, the superb cavalier. Col. Gervaise Eyre. 

From the church I walked to the two gateways and dwellings, 
the old and the new, of the Eyres. One is a rather modest brick 
building going back to late Tudor times, when a brick house was a 
novelty and curiosity. The art of brick making having fallen into- 
decay since Roman days, was reintroduced by the Dutch into Eng- 
land. Near by was an old stone gateway, still rather imposing, 
despite the mouldering of centuries and the gnawing of old time's 
tooth. One could easily recognize the Tudor roses, chiseled in 
stone, and also the heraldic sign of the Eyres, the greaved warrior's 
leg cut off near the thigh. Both these memorials of an earlier day 
were half hidden beyond trees and shrubbery, but hard by was an- 
other imposing stone gateway on the top of which cut in stone was 
again the decussated leg. This massive portal was the entrance to 



First Generation. 1501 

the driveway leading into the park and the manor house, which is 
rather an elegant spacious modern dwelling, which, however, with its 
numerous servants' houses and out-buildings was empty and deserted. 
Indeed it often happens that these entailed estates are too costly in 
their maintenance for their owners. 

I took supper and spent all night at the Eyre Arms Inn, Mr. 
Quickfall, formerly coachman of Colonel Henry Eyre, proprietor, be- 
ing the keeper and host. To please his guest, he kindly took from 
their frames photographs of the interior of the church and of the 
Eyre mansion, which I brought away as trophies. After exploring 
the village again, in "the dewy call of incense-breathing morn," I 
walked over the fields with the postman from Rampton to Cottam, 
and thence rode to Retford, taking a run once again to Worksop, 
making my second visit to this ancestral seat. 

From Retford station, again I walked down to Babworth, find- 
ing a very fashionable neighborhood, full of elegant houses, a very 
pretty church and a most hospitable and delightful rector, who not 
only took me into the church and showed me all the sights, the 
tablets and graves of the Eyres, but also the superb stained glass 
window set up in memoriam to one of the Eyre military men killed 
in the Ashantee war in South Africa. I went all over the rectory, 
where, according to Prof. Arber, the Pilgrim movement originated. 
After lunching with the genial rector, Rev. Edmund St. Aubyn, wife 
and two daughters, I spent an hour or so over the parchments and 
papers of the parish records, finding them however too modern for 
any special use, the older records having long ago disappeared. 
Thence I rode over to Scrooby for my fourth visit, spending several 
hours in the church, manor house, parish clerk's house (exactly like 
one built in Shakespeare's time and older than the immortal bard), 
meeting also two Yankee modern Pilgrims on bicycles. Then I 
went on to York, spending the night at the Black Swan Hotel, ex- 
ploring once more the old town where so much of English, Israelitish,. 
Roman and Pilgrim Father history centers.

(daughter of Richard Wright, the leading ship-builder of Phila- 
delphia, Pa.). During the American Revolution he was a promi- 
nent member of the Penn. State Navy Board and did noble service 
through the war. He died Nov. i, 1805, at Kensington, Philadel- 
phia, Pa. She died April 18, 1798. They had thirteen children. 

When the Revolutionary war broke out these Eyre brothers, be- 
lieving that in this instance war was necessary and righteous, as 
being, "resistance to revolution from without," took up arms against 
King George III. and in favor of the Continental Congress. Manuel 
Eyre built some of the first gunboats ordered by the Continental 
Congress on the site of his old industry now covered by the great 
yard of the Cramps, at Kensington, Philadelphia, in which are built 
the steel battleships of the United States Navy. 

The following is the official record of his military services : 
"Manuel Eyre. Born 1736. Died 1805. Member of Committee of 
Correspondence of Philadelphia, 1775 ; Delegate to the Provincial

Jan. 10, 1738. He married Lydia Wright (daughter of Richard 
Wright, ship-builder, of Philadelphia). Colonel commanding the 
Philadelphia Artillery during the Revolutionary War, until his death, 
which occurred in July, 1 781, from exposure. They had nine chil- 
dren. 

Jehu Eyre carried on his boat-building enterprises as far west 
as the Ohio river. On the fall of the French power in America, and 
the surrender of Fort Pitt (which as a fortification commanding two 
rivers had been first begun by Washington and re-built and com- 
pleted on another site by General Forbes in 1758), he accepted a 
commission, when but twenty -one years old, to build boats for the 
navigation of the Ohio river by the King's forces and by the new 
settlers. With a band of his ship-carpenters and boat-builders from 
Philadelphia he traveled across the whole length of the state of 
Pennsylvania, the western part of which was still mainly forests, and 
remained many months at Pittsburg. On one of his excursions he 
visited Braddock's battlefield then still strewn with the whitened 
bones of the unburied slain. While at Fort Pitt he learned all the 
details of guns and ammunition, and how to handle artillery, and 
afterwards perfected himself by study. When the Revolution broke 
out he raised a regiment of artillery, mainly from men of his own 
shipyard, and drilled them into a crack organization, which served 
during the war. Col. Jehu Eyre had charge of the boats at the 
crossing of the Delaware, on Christmas morning, 1776, when General 
Washington marched to attack Trenton, General Glover's Marble- 
head regiment of Massachusetts water men transporting the army 



Second Generation. 1505 

across the Delaware. Besides being in the Princeton campaign, 
Col. Jehu Ayre garrisoned the forts on the Delaware, during Sulli- 
van's summer campaign of 1779 into Western New York, so that 
Proctor's artillery, of nine pieces and three hundred men, could be 
released for the great expedition against the Indians in the lake 
region. As we know, the heavy howitzers and cannon took part in 
and probably decided the battle of Newtown, near Elmira, August 
29, 1779, and that at least two three-pounders were taken as far as 
Honeoye, N. Y. The reader will find in the Pennsylvania Maga- 
zine of Biography and History an account of Manuel Eyre and Col. 
Jehu Eyre, with the printed journal of the latter which describes his 
journey to Pittsburg. In the story of General John Sullivan's great 
march against savagery, which opened western New York to civiliza- 
tion, entitled "The Pathfinders of the Revolution," are word 
pictures of Colonel Eyre's home in Philadelphia, both at the outset 
of the expedition and on its return. 

The following is the official record of his military services : 
"Jehu Eyre. Born 1738. Died 1781. Captain, Philadelphia City 
Guard, Aug. 30, 1775 ; Captain of Artillery, Philadelphia Brigade, 
Gen. John Cadwallader, June 5, 1777 ; Colonel, Philadelphia Artillery

Thomas Cheeseman of New York). She was born May 22, 1756. 
They had two children. 

Benjamin George Eyre was a colonel during the Revolution, 
and enjoyed greatly the confidence of Washington. Although manu- 
script evidence is lacking for the statement, yet it is an unquestioned 
fact that he was aid de camp of General Washington at the battle of 
Princeton. Why documentary evidence does not exist, we shall 
show further on. John Trumbull the painter, as an officer in the 
American army, took part at Princeton, and in his superb picture of 
the battle, as well as in the four or five sketches which he made for 
the canvas, which are now in the possession of the School of Fine 
Arts at Yale University, Col. Benjamin Eyre is in every case repre- 
sented on horseback with his hat off and charging sword in hand. 
General Washington presented his aid with a handsome punch bowl 
and for years afterwards — as the writer has often heard from old 
members of the family relatives who remembered seeing it, — Col. 
Eyre was very proud of this token of his commander's esteem. The 
fatigues of the war finally undermined his constitution and he died 



Second Generation. 1507 

July II, 1789. In those days, before telegraphs and railways, when 
his wife and other members of his family were at the eastern end of 
Long Island and it being mid summer, burial had to be made 
quickly. 

Then came the disaster to history. Those who have read Dr. 
Weir's "Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker," know how great was the 
division between those of the Friends who adhered to old traditions 
and those who threw off their Quaker coats and took up arms. In 
the preface to "The Romance of Conquest," the fact is referred to 
that the Free Quakers of Philadelphia inscribed on their new meet- 
ing house "Erected in the year of our Lord, 1783, of the Empire 8," 
and that in doing so they were not Jingos or "ImperiaUsts," but be- 
lievers in God and in the growth of the United States of America. 
Washington and many of the Revolutionary fathers subscribed to 
this new house of worship, which stood on the southwest corner of 
5th and Arch in Philadelphia, directly opposite to Christ's Church 
burying ground, in which Benjamin and Deborah Franklin are 
buried. Herein, also, rest the remains of Captain John Griffis, Col. 
Benjamin G. Eyre, Charles E., Esther, Nathan and Samuel G. Eyre. 
See Record of the Inscriptions of Tablets and Gravestones in the 
Burial Grounds of Christ's Church. 

Col. Jehu Eyre in making his will (probably as far back as be- 
fore the opening of the war which so divided the Society ot Friends) 
had named two of his Quaker brethren, men of undoubted probity, 
as his executors. With the stern convictions of primitive Quaker 
orthodoxy, they proceeded immediately after the funeral to carry out 
the terms of the will. They were clothed with full power, but evi- 
dently Col. Jehu Eyre had not foreseen that he would die alone, 
when his family were absent and that the executors would be so 
ruthlessly literal. But these mighty men of God proceeded, even 
"as a shepherd divideth his sheep and the goats." They put on the 
lefthand, the warrior's chapeau, epaulettes, military coats, side- 
striped trousers, spurs, and every memento of war, even letters from 
Washington, Hamilton, Sullivan and other Revolutionary generals, 
indeed all that savored of what in their eyes was a Belial and

and every article in metal, cloth or paper, or that with ink suggested 
war, and headed up the receptacles. Setting out in the night they 
found a soft place in the middle of a public road out in the country 
and digging a hole, buried the two barrels. They smoothed over 
the top and the wagon tracks soon left the precious records and 
relics in oblivion. History suffered, the members of Col. Eyre's 
family on their return were indignant, but tears and wrath were alike 
useless. The two Friends, executors, were as inexorable as they 
were honest. Hence, we must depend on the artist's testimony, and 
the unbroken and unanimous family traditions for Col. Benjamin 
George Eyre's part in the battle of Princeton. For several years the 
relics of Colonel Jehu Eyre were exhibited in glass cases in Inde- 
pendence Hall. He died July 11, 1789. Residence, Kensington,

I5IO History of the Ayees Family. 

600620. Capt. John Griffis. Of the ancestry of Captain 
John GrifBs, beyond family tradition, little is directly known. The 
Griffiths were a Welsh clan spelling their name originally Cryffyd, 
and anglicizing it as Griffith, the word meaning literally "great faith." 
The variations of the name, both in Welsh and English, are many. 
Of the most common of fifty names in England and Wales, Smith 
Jones, Williams, etc., Griffiths stands as fiftieth in frequency. In 
1840, 38,400 people in the island of Britain, or in other words, 
one out of 579 of the people in England and Wales in 1840 was a 
Griffith — in the original or variant form. In the cathedral at Bangor 
and in many Welsh churches, one can read the mortuary records of 
many members of this sturdy clan. The particular line of Griffiths 
in which we are interested went out of Wales, some into Hampshire, 
but most into Devonshire, England, and those in the latter county 
became seafaring men, so that for eight generations previous to the 
present writer, the Griffiths men — a John being in every generation — 
have followed the sea. Let us now look at the American Griffis, in 
which we are especially interested. 

According to family tradition, John Griffis was born in England 
in Devonshire, August 16, 1766, and from an early age followed the 
sea. In politics he was opposed to the policy of King George HI. 
and to the coercion of the colonies during the Revolutionary war. 
Soon after peace was declared, he came to America, dropped the 
th out of his name, and engaged in the trade with the West Indies. 
He was on at least one voyage to China, and brought back a hand- 
some dinner set decorated to order. He commanded ships which 
sailed frequently from Salem and Newburyport, Mass. During the 
period of French spoliations of our commerce by the cruisers and 
privateers of the French Republic, and Directory, Captain Griffis 
suffered great losses at the hands of these commerce destroyers. His 
name appears frequently in the records and papers of the French 
spoliation claims, which by the convention between the United 
States and France ratified July 31, 1801, estimated the damages to 
our commerce at $20,000,000. After eighty-four years' agitation, for 
payment to American citizens. President Cleveland signed, January 
ist, 1885, a bill authorizing claimants to apply by petition to the 
Court of Claims for indemnity. 

On the records of pilotage, in the custom house, the city direc- 



Third Generation. 15 ii 

tories and newspaper notices and advertisements of Philadelphia 
the name of Captain John Griffis figures prominently, showing that 
he was a man of note in the commercial world. On the roll of the 
Society of Masters of Ships his name appears as having taken mem- 
bership July, 1799. The act incorporating this society, organized 
July 4th, 1765, and incorporated in 1770, bears the name of Thomas 
Paine as clerk of the assembly, and the supplementary act that of 
Governor Thomas Mifflin. 

When Captain Griffis who was a Presbyterian, married Hannah 
Eyre, a Friend, Nov. 28, 1802, she was "read out of meeting" by 
the Quakers for marrying outside her sect. Their home was then 
in the fashionable quarter of the city, first at No. 39 Penn and then 
at 260 South Front street, Philadelphia, in 1806 having but 13,000 
people. Though of superb physical development, vigorous and 
active in his movements, Captain Griffis lost his life by overstrain. 
Finding his men not so spry in unloading the ship as he wished them 
to do, he seized a flour barrel and with both hands held it up over 
his head, ran along the wharf and deposited the barrel where it be- 
longed, and then — fell over dead. He was buried in Christ Church 
graveyard, a few yards south of Benjamin Franklin and among many 
of the fathers of the republic. He was born Sept. 20, 1766. He 
married Nov. 28, 1802, Hannah Eyre. 600056. He died April 2, 
1807. ■ They had two children.

delphia. He married Margaretta (the youngest of three daughters 
of John Harby and wife Margaret) who was born July 3rd, 1782, at 
Whitemarsh near Philadelphia and was married in 1806. She was 
one of the little girls dressed in white who in 1789 welcomed Wash- 
ington into Philadelphia on his way to New York as President, and 
scattered flowers before his horse. It is believed that John Harby 
was of German origin, though he may have been of English descent.) 

John Limeburner Griffis, probably named after an English 
friend in Totnes, Devonshire, was carefully educated in the city of 
Philadelphia and at a school at Mount Airy, in preparation for West 
Point. Instead of this, however, he went to sea when but twelve 
years of age and thenceforth followed the ocean, making voyages to 
the West Indies, -Europe, Africa, the East Indies, the Philippiries, 
etc. On one voyage he and the whole crew were lost upon an island 
in the Pacific, and lived for six months among the natives, being 
kindly treated. Before reaching shelter, they lived in open boats on 
the sea at S'tarvation point, catching flying fish and land birds. For 
want of food, they came very near being obliged to draw lots for a 
human victim. A ship sent by the United States government 
brought them all safely home. In time, John L. Griffis rose to be 
Captain and part owner of his own ship. 

In 1837, April nth, he married Anna Maria Hess of Philadel- 
phia, being united in the bonds of wedlock by the Rev. John 
Chambers, who was pastor of the same church for fifty-four years. 
On marrying, Captain Griffis gave up seafaring, settled at New 
Brunswick, N. J., and invested his money in a steamboat, towing 
canal boats loaded with Pennsylvania coal from the end of the Dela- 
ware and Raritan Canal to New York. Sometimes he went up the 
Hudson river, occasionally going with the boats as far as Buffalo, 
speculating on his own account by taking coal and bringing back the 
produce of the country to New York and Philadelphia. Once his 
freight of perishable material was caught by the frost and he lost his

cargo. He was one of the charter members in the formation of the 
2nd Presbyterian church at New Brunswick. His bride attending 
the commencement of Rutgers College vowed that if ever she should 
be the mother of a son to study for the ministry, he should be edu- 
cated in Rutgers College. Captain Griffis all his life kept up his 
reading habits and accumulated a large library. Returning to Phila- 
delphia he embarked in the coal business in which he was very suc- 
cessful. He took especial interest in the building of the United 
States steam frigate Susquehanna in view of Commodore Perry's 
voyage to Japan, and on the occasion of her launching at the Phila- 
delphia Navy Yard he had a platform built for the accommodation 
of several hundred spectators. He died of pneumonia April 2, 1879, 
at midnight, aged seventy-four. His wife Anna Maria Griffis died 
January 17th, 1872.

Navy, voyaging to Mexico on the frigate Powhatan and then 
serving four years under Admirals Porter and Farragut. He 
was in the battles at the forts off the mouth of the Mississippi 
and in the long naval campaign in that noble river. After- 
wards commissioned as engineer officer, he had command of 
the U. S. steam tug Clover and was engaged in many stirring 
episodes, including the attempted capture of the blockade run- 
ner Ada, and the affair of the Dai Ching. He kept a journal of 
his daily life, which is now of high historic value. He belonged 
to the E. D. Barker Post, G. A. R., and to the Farragut Asso- 
ciation of Naval Veterans. He died .February 22, 1902.

and husband of Hannah Hess, sister of Anna Maria Hess. William

gomery and Delaware for twelve years, collecting thirty million dol- 
lars. He died May 14th, 1879. He was married about October 24th, 
1843. For many years he was a member and choir leader of the 
Presbyterian church at Fourth and Coates, of which the bride's 
mother was a charter member. He was educated in the Public and 
High Schools of Philadelphia, and then was for five years employed 
by Carrow, Thibault & Co., wholesale manufacturers of jewelry. He 
became a member of the First Independent Church of Philadelphia, 
Rev. John Chambers pastor, at the age of fourteen. Later he 
united with the Second Reformed (Dutch) Church, Rev. T. DeWitt 
Talmage pastor, and edited a monthly Sunday School paper, en- 
titled Our Messenger, during two years. Feeling called to the 
gospel ministry, he prepared under a private tutor for Rutgers 
College. 

At the breaking out of the war he desired to enlist in the Ad- 
derson cavalry, but yielded to his parents' wishes and remained in 
the Home Guard, joining the Spencer Miller Howitzer Battery, 
learning the artillery drill, and afterwards the Philadelphia Zouaves, 
under Captain John Sword, learning the infantry drill and camping 
out for part of a summer at Valley Forge. He visited Baltimore in 
1863 to recruit his health, somewhat broken by chills and fever, and 
was on the farm of a relative when it was visited by the pickets of 
the Confederate army then marching into Pennsylvania. Upon this 
he immediately passed through the barricades around Baltimore and 
arriving in Philadelphia, enlisted the next morning in the 44th Penn- 
sylvania regiment of militia and proceeded to camp Curtin near 
Harrisburg, and later to the fords of the Potomac. He was made 
color corporal and served as secretary of the company, making the 
muster rolls which are still in Harrisburg. 

Entering Rutgers College in September 1865, he took in his 
course five prizes for English composition and Natural Science. He 
was sophomore, junior and senior orator, and member of the Phi 
Beta Kappa fraternity. He gave much time to general reading, not 
forgetting athletics, and stood at graduation fifth in the class. He 
founded The Targum the college newspaper which still flourishes. 
His fraternity was the Delta Upsilon at whose conventions, as dele- 
gate or orator he has been often present. From the proceeds of 
money earned by making fraternity and society badge pins, he

started for travel in Europe June 26th, 1869. He had studied 
colloquial German, with the view of taking his three years theological 
course at Halle, Gottingen, and Berlin, but was dissuaded from this 
purpose (by Dr. John R. Posey, of Philadelphia). With his sister 
he spent four months abroad including a trip into Italy and a 
pedestrian tour in Switzerland, where he visited the famous historian 
Merle D'Aubigne. Other famous personages seen were Gladstone 
and the Princess of Wales, now the Queen of England. He was at 
Paris at the Centennial Anniversary of the birthday of Napoleon 
Bonaparte. One of his traveling acquaintances in England was Miss 
Saxton, who became the wife of President McKinley. 

Returning to America he took one year of theological study at 
Hertzog Hall, New Brunswick, N. J. For several years, since 1867, 
Japanese students had been coming to America and he had taught 
some of those who first came. As he was about to enter upon the 
second year of his theological studies, a call came from Daimio or 
Baron of Echizen, Japan, for a teacher of the natural sciences and 
superintendent of education. He went to Japan arriving December 
29th, 1870, and served nearly four years in the government educa- 
tional service. One year was spent in the city of Fukui, during 
which time he observed the workings of the feudal system, being the 
only white man now living who thus did so. Leaving Fukui January 
22nd, 1872, he made an overland journey across the country to 
Tokio. Besides three years in the capital he traveled in many parts 
of the empire and made investigations into Japanese history and 
archaeology, having audience of the Mikado and receiving handsome 
presents on expiration of his term of service. Returning home in 
1874 he spent two years in lecturing and in writing "The Mikado's 
Empire" now in its ninth edition. He then entered Union Seminary 
in New York City and completed his three years of theological 
study. He was licensed by the Manhattan Congregational Associa- 
tion and also by the Classis of Schenectady. His first charge was 
the First Reformed Dutch Church of Schenectady, which he served 
nine years. For one year he was professor in Union College which 
in 1883 conferred on him the degree of Doctor of Divinity. 

Mr. Griffis began early writing for the press, but his first im- 
portant contribution was an editorial in the New York Independent 
on The Japanese Students in America. While in Japan he issued 



1530 History of the Ayres Family. 

the Tokio Guide, the Yokohama Guide, and Map of Tokio with 
notes historical and explanatory. On the 6th of August 1876, his 
work The Mikado's Empire, consisting of two books, one on the his- 
tory of Japan, the other of personal experiences, studies, and observa- 
tions, in Japan 1870-1874, was issued by Messrs. Harper & Brothers. 
It opened a new era in the average American's knowledge of Japan 
and is yet the standard authority and favorite with tourists and 
travelers. After nearly nine years' service in the ministry of the Re- 
formed Dutch Church, of which he had been a member since 1861, 
he was called to the Shawmut Congregational church of Boston, 
Mass., which he served seven years. In Boston he was honored 
with membership in the Congregational, Winthrop, Ministers', and 
Monday Clubs. From 1886 to 1902 he has contributed one or 
more sermons to the volume annually issued by the latter. While in 
Boston he was Dudleian lecturer at Harvard. In 1893 he accepted 
a call to the First Congregational Church of Christ in Ithaca, N. Y., 
beginning his ministry July ist, 1893. 

He married (ist) June 17th, 1879, Katharine Lyra (first daugh- 
ter of Professor Benjamin I. Stanton of Union College and Katharine 
P. Coffin of New Hampshire). The children born were Lillian Eyre, 
Stanton and John Elliot. She died in Ithaca, December 9th, 1898, 
and was buried in Schenectady. He married (2nd) June 28th, 
1900, by Rev. Jesse B. Felt in the Congregational church at Pulaski, 
N. Y., Sarah Frances King, daughter of Don Alonzo King, whose 
ancestors came from Northampton, England, to Northampton, Mass., 
whence they emigrated to Pulaski, N. Y. 

Mr. Griffis has six times visited Europe, his favorite haunts be- 
ing Holland and England, at the universities of which he. has con- 
siderable acquaintance, and has preached in many of the Congrega- 
tional churches of 'England and Scotland, as well as in the English 
churches of Holland. Besides contributing to the periodical press 
and to several encyclopasdias, the list of his public works which re- 
late chiefly to Dutch, American and Japanese history and biography,

Eyre Histohy. 

ROBERT EYRE OF CHESTER COUNTY, PA. (1683.) 



620000. Robert Eyre. He was born Jan. 30, 1648 (?), in 
England. He served his apprenticeship with William Rogers, a 
merchant of Bristow, a town on the borders of Somerset and Glou- 
cestershire. Here he acquired a ready use of the pen which fitted 
him for the duties he was subsequently called on to discharge. 
After the expiration of his apprenticeship he for some time followed 
the sea as supercargo, but eventually migrated to Pennsylvania, 
where he married Ann, daughter of Francis Smith, a gentleman of 
education and wealth, whose residence was Devizes, in the county of 
Wilts, and who was one of the original purchasers of land in Eng- 
land. He afterwards settled at Kennet, Pa. On the authority of 
tradition Robert Eyre first settled in Jersey. Part of the land pur- 
chased by Francis Smith was located in Bethel Township, Chester 
Co., Pa., and was conveyed at an early date to Robert Eyre and his 
wife. This doubtless caused Robert to change his place of resi- 
dence. In 1683 he was appointed Clerk of the Courts of Chester 
County, Pa., which office he held until 1690. He was not a Quaker 
but some of his descendants were. He was alive in 1697. (See 
Dr. George Smith's History of Delaware County, Pa.)
