INTRODUCTION. 



The County of Westchester, from its advan- 
tageous position and fertile soil, was always consid- 
ered one of the most important portions of the 
Province of New York, and for many years before 
the English conquest was a source of bitter conten- 
tion between the Dutch and their neighbors of the 
Colony of Connecticut. The very names of the 
regions are a lesson in history and geography. To 
the Dutch advancing from the west it was known as 
the " Oost Dorp^' or the east village, while by the 
English coming from the east and extending their 
boundaries it was called the Westchester. To this 
place came new settlers not only from New England 
but from all parts of Long Island. This new class 
of inhabitants were all united in the desire to have 
Westchester considered a part of Connecticut. 
Among them were men from Southampton, L. I., 
who afterward became very prominent. One of 
these, Richard Mills, was one of the earliest settlers 
in that village, and was the first town clerk and 
schoolmaster. About 1651 he left Southampton 
and settled in Newtown, but shortly after removed 
to Westchester. Here the schoolmaster found him- 



vn 



viii Introduction. 

self in hot water. The whole region was debatable 
land, held and occupied by the Dutch and claimed 
by the English. He soon became one of the recog- 
nized leaders of the English faction. Their machi- 
nations against the Dutch government were so 
public and notorious that Peter Stuyvesant sent a 
band of soldiers and arrested the leaders of what he 
termed the " English thieves," and put them in 
prison in New Amsterdam, and among these was 
Richard Mills. 

Now there may be some philosophical enough to 
believe that 

"Stone walls do nota prison make, 
Nor iron bars a cage," 

but the schoolmaster was not one of them. A few 
weeks in this unpleasant position brought him to his 
senses, and he addressed a piteous letter to Peter 
Stuyvesant, or as he calls him " My Dear Lord 
Steveson " asking for release. But the individual 
called by the veracious Diedrich Knickerbocker 
"Peter the Headstrono- " turned a deaf ear to the 
complaints of the schoolmaster, and he continued to 
lanouish. Soon after he wrote another letter to the 
" High Court at Manhattan " praying for relief, and 
stating that he had been tenderly brought up from 
his infancy, and that confinement in their prison 
would *' perdite " (destroy or endanger) his life un- 
less he were speedily released, and urging, as an 
additional inducement, his intention " to go about 



Introduction. ix 

his affairs to Virginia" as soon as freed from prison. 
He was soon after released on condition of his agree- 
ing to do nothinor a<rainst the Dutch Government; 
but the English accounts state that his sufferings 
caused his death, "which happened soon after." 
Such was the unhappy fate of the first town clerk 
of the oldest English town, and the first English 
schoolmaster in the Province of New York. In 
1 710 Richard Mills of Cohansey, in New Jersey, 
speaks of himself in a deed as being " grand son, 
and sole heir at law of Mr. Richard Mills formerly 
of Westchester." It would be interesting to know 
if he has any descendants living. 

Another prominent citizen was Capt. William 
Barnes, who came from Southampton. He was a 
son of Joshua Barnes, a very early settler in that 
town, and from him and his nephew Joshua Barnes 
many families of that name are descended. 

Although after the conquest the original Dutch 
settlers were soon outnumbered by the English, yet 
there still remained a large population of that race, 
who clung to the ancient language and customs of 
their ancestors. This was especially true of the 
region embraced in the great manor of Phillipsburgh, 
which was owned by Fredrick Phillipse, the " rich 
man of New Amsterdam," and his descendants down 
to the end of the Revolution. The lands in this 
tract were held by tenants, mostly on life leases, and 
upon the death of the tenant the land and improve- 
ments reverted to the Lord of the Manor, unless he 



X Introduction. 

saw fit to continue the heirs in possession. This is 
alluded to in many of the wills. 

The great manor of Cortlandt, the property of 
Stephen Van Cortlandt, was also divided into farms 
and held by tenants, but mostly on long leases. In 
other parts of the county, as in the town or Borough 
of Westchester, lands were held in fee simple, and 
this accounts for their large population. 

The reeion now embraced in Greenwich was 
always claimed as a part of the Province of New 
York, and the contest between the two colonies con- 
cerning it lasted for years. To retain this tract and 
give nothing in return for it exercised all the shrewd- 
ness and cunninof for which the inhabitants of Con- 
necticut have always been noted. As a final set- 
tlement of the controversy, Connecticut gave in 
exchange a strip of land one mile, three-quarters, and 
twenty-seven rods wide, and sixty-eight miles long, 
extendinof from near the middle of the east line of 
Westchester County, to the line of Massachusetts. 
This tract was known as the " Oblong" or " Equiva- 
lent Lands." It was sold to a number of capitalists, 
who divided it into square lots of 500 acres each. 
These lots were soon sold to actual settlers, who 
were attracted by the fact that they could buy their 
land in fee simple, and at the time of the Revolu- 
tion there were more inhabitants on the "Oblong" 
in proportion to its extent, than in any of the great 
manors. In preparing the following abstracts of 
wills the writer has been actuated by a desire to omit 



Introduction. xi 

nothing that can throw any light on genealogy or 
real estate. The descriptions of parcels of land are 
given in the words of the will. As regards personal 
property the writer makes a distinction between 
articles of permanent and lasting value, and those 
that are transient and perishable. If a man left to 
his children or wife articles of silver ware, — as a 
tankard, a porringer, or spoons, or a Bible, or a 
sword, — the fact is carefully noted, as these articles 
may still be in existence, and treasured as valued 
heirlooms. But if he left to any of his heirs five 
pounds, a cow, or a feather bed, we conclude that the 
money is spent, the cow dead, and the bed worn out. 
Such things are mentioned under the general name 
of ''legacies." It has also been our object to omit 
nothing that can throw any light on the manners and 
customs of the time. The religious element in the 
wills is to be especially noticed : the testator leaves 
his body to the ground, and his soul to God who 
gave it, in full confidence that at the " Last Great 
Day" the former will be raised again by the " mighty 
power of God." We have no hesitation in express- 
ing our opinion that the " Know all men by these 
presents," of the present time, is a very poor substi- 
tute for the " In the Name of God, Amen," invari- 
ably used in the ancient times. 

In the wills of Jews, the expression " In the year 
of our Lord " is omitted in deference to the wishes 
of the testator. 

Among the early Dutch residents, a funeral was 



xii Introduction. 

an occasion of enjoyment rather than of solemnity. 
Ardent spirits were freely dispensed to those attend- 
ing, and a lavish entertainment was frequently 
provided. To the English population a pompous 
funeral was a thing greatly desired, and not unfre- 
quently was a source of expense which weighed 
heavily upon the family. One of the most interest- 
ing wills in this book is that of a Quaker who states 
that he has frequently "borne his testimony" against 
such things during his life and now " bears his last 
testimony." 

In early times the eldest son was supposed to be 
heir at law to all lands, and some especial legacy was 
very frequently left to him for the purpose of pre- 
venting such a claim. 

Where the names of executors are omitted in these 

abstracts, it is in cases where their names already 

appear in the will. Where the witnesses are omitted 

it is when they are well-known persons whose names 

very frequently occur.

THE OLD HAVILAND INN, RYE, N. Y. 

This ancient mansion, a noted tavern, or place of 
entertainment, in olden times, was as early as 1731 
the homestead of Peter Brown. After his death it 
passed into the possession of Rev. James Wetmore, 
Rector of the Parish of Rye. In 1763 it was the 
residence of his son Timothy Wetmore, who mar- 
ried Jane Haviland. As early as 1770 Dr. Ebenezer 
Haviland, brother-in-law of Timothy Wetmore, and 
afterward a surgeon in the Revolution, kept this 
tavern. During the war it was kept by Jonathan 
Wright, but it reverted to Mrs. Tamar Haviland, 
widow of the doctor. Gen. Washington in his diary 
thus alludes to it : " Thursday Oct. 15, 1789. After 
dinner through frequent light showers, we proceeded 
to the Tavern of a Mrs. Haviland at Rye ; who 
keeps a very neat and decent Inn." His next stop- 
ping place was at the tavern of one Webb in Stam- 
ford. The General describes it as " a tolerable good 
house, but not equal in appearance and reality, to 
Mrs. Haviland's." In 1774 John Adams stopped 
here on his way from Boston to New York. Widow 
Haviland was succeeded by Peter Quintard, who was 
landlord in 1797. In 1801 the house passed into the 
hands of Nathaniel Penfield, and at his death, in

1810, fell to his son Henry L. Penfield. The hotel 
was a noted stopping place on the Boston road, in 
the days of stages, and among its guests was Gen. 
Lafayette in 1824. It ceased to be an Inn about 
1830, and in 1835 it was sold to David H. Mead, in 
whose family it now remains.
