PART I. 



EARLY HISTORY OF THE FREEMAN FAMH.Y. 

We caniK^t at this date decide how tlie name oris^inated. All 
autliors on nomenclature believe that it was adopted by some 
one who desired to indicate his position of a free man. 

A genealo.qical authority says, "Another ori^rinal of names 
was. clearly, the existence of some peculiar qualify in the indi- 
vidual, — moral, physical, accidental, or otherwise, — of which 
illustrations may be cited, such as Jolni-flic-stniiii^, becoming;' 
/()///; S front:;: and, as is related of Ednumd, a Saxon Kini;', 
that he was surnamed Ironsides; or' of persons who could not 
i)e subjected by invasion; Itut by well chosen position, jiersist- 
ence or valor, maintained their independence, never in vassal- 
ag"e or made tributary, and who were appropriately denomi- 
nated FREE. Of this number, it naturally followed that Joliu- 
fhc-fyccmcu came to be called John Freeman, and from the 
FREEMEK of an early day, has, as it is claimed and les^iti- 
mately concluded, come the patronymic FREF^MAX." 

We have at an earlv date one John le Freeman. The name 
does not ap])ear in the Uattle of Abl)ey Roll of Honour, and 
the family is ])robably not of Norman origin, as has been 
claimed; for few. if any, of the early Normans were left out 
of this remarkable Roll; but, on the contrarw a lari^e number 
of names were added without any authority vvhatever. 

The name ap])ears several times in old Oerman chronicles, 
and also in the v'^candinavian "v'^aj^as"; l)ut it is more than 
l)ro])al)le tliat it was assumed in these countries f(_)r the same 
rea'^ons as in ''ritain. 

That all the I'ritish 1>ranches of the I'reeman family came 
from one i;on.imon stock is evidenced by the almost identical 
anus Imrne bv the diitcrent houses of this name, both in \\n\^- 
land and Ireland. 

It is curious to note that this name was assinned by the 
Duchess of MarlborouLdi in licr well-known correspondence 



GENEALOGY - ] 



witli Ouccn Anne. 'I'lu< Duchess hoastcfl that slic callr.l l)rr- 
M If "Mrs. Frrcman." lucausc the name "was pccuh'arly suited 
to the trankniss aud hohhicss of her cliaracter." 

Why all the houses of Freeman sliould have adopted the 
device of "the Lozen.qc or Fusil" in their arms I caiui.,1 say, 
unless it was to indicate their industry and perseverance in tlie 
husiuess entrusted to them. 

We shall now proceed to indicate the origin of the different 
houses of Freeman, and the armorv thev carried.

(vSt. Sapulchres Records.) 

If these two hrothers, Edward and Ilenry Freeman, sons of 
josei)h h'reeman (and hdizaheth Ciosse ) , had remained in lui^-- 
land, we should haye some records of their marria<";es and 
deaths, as we haye of the other memhers of the f.amily. The 
records of the other members of the faniily in iuiq-land are 
ver\- com])lete; but we find no entry of the marriaij^e or death 
of cithi r of these hrothers. Hut just about the time wlun these 
\()un"; nun attained their majority, and would l)e shifting' for 
themsilves, there appear in Woodbrid5;e, New Jersey, two per- 
sons of the saun' names and aq"es. There can h;irdl\ he any 
diuibt that thev are identical, as the eyidence that Ivlwnrd Free- 
man and I b'urv Freeman, of \Voodhrid<_;e, came from \'AV<:;;-

land is positive and conclusive. 

Emig:ration to Anurica was at its heiq-ht about this time. 
Hotton, in his "Orij^inal Lists," says, of this period, "We learn, 
incidentally, that ships left England daily for America." About 
this time, also, (juite a number of Surrey families went to Xew 
Jersey, and among- them the Phillips and Bowne, with whom 
the two Freemans intermarried. We feel," for these reasons, 
justified in assuming the relationship between the Surrey Free- 
mans and the New Jersey Freemans as being fully established. 

Another strong item of proof lies in the fact that Daniel 
Freeman, of Los Angeles, California, owns a very old seal, the 
possession of which can be traced back to his great grand- 
father, Andrew^ Freeman, the grandson of Edward. This seal 
was, in all iirobability, brought over from England by Edward 
himself. It has cn,qrave(l u\Hm it the crest of a demi-lion 
rampant gules charged on the shoulder with a lozenge argent, 
and the style of the seal and the engraving shows it t(^ be the 
work of the latter half of the seventeenth century. As this 
crest was borne only by the Surrey branch of the Freeman 
family, this old seal affords strong testimony that the Freemans 
of New Jersev are descended from that branch of their house, 
and tliat the Edward of Woodbridge. N. J., and the Edward of 
London were one and the same person.

A MEMORIAL 

...OF... 



^ EDWARD FREEMAN .•* 

of Woodbridge, New Jersey, and His Descendants 



Compiled by D. FREEMAN 



PREFACE. 



The descendants of Edward Freeman, of Woodbridge, New 
lersey are scattered over Canada, and the States of New Jer- 
sey, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina and California; 
and it has taken the author several years to collect the mate- 
rial, (scant, though it is) for the following genealogy. Exten- 
sive searches were made in England, and the services of the 
Reverend '1\ F. Chambers, D. D., of Dover. N. J., a genealog- 
ical authority, were enlisted to search the records of New Jer- 
sey. Sometimes it has taken weeks of work to find the date 
of a birlh or marriage, or to establish the connection between 
two or more individuals to determine whether they were of the 
family or not. In America it has been found impossible to 
trace all the members of the family. Sometimes the record 
against a name is simply "Went West" or "Went to Califor- 
nia.' and no further trace of the person named could l)e found. 
Sometimes letters of ineiuiry addressed to members of the 
family have remained unanswered from causes unknown to 
the author. 

A few blank pages have been inserted at the end of the book 
for future genealogical entries. Any member of the family 
who may be able to correct any date or entry herein or fill in 
any date or entry left blank, will confer a great favor ui)on the 
author ])v sending such information to him, so that in the event 
of another edition being published such corrections may be 
made therein. Danip:l Freeman, 

Los Angeles, California. 



GENEALOGY 29 

It is uiiccrlain at what date Edward Frcetnan and llnirx 
Freeman arri\cd in America fnnn England. An old gentle- 
man named Freeman, of Newark, X. J., told the Rev. l'\ Free- 
man, author of the genealogy of Edmund and Sanuiel Free- 
man, in 1848, that "A Freeman, whose name was prohahly 
John, came from ( ).\tnrd, England, bringing wife and chil- 
dren, in company with William I'enn's first Colony, June;, 1O81, 
and was drowned in the Delaware River in the act of landing 
his chattels; and from his family originated the New Jerse\ 
Freemans." Note on above l)y Mr. F\ : "Supposing the man 
alleged drowned was John, or any other, the legend that he 
left a widow and three sons, Edward, Henry and Sanniel, pro- 
posed one of these, viz., Flenry as the progenitor ; and this 
Henry, it was said, was apprenticed in Philadelphia, married 
a PVench woman, and located in W'oodbridge, N. J., where 1)) 
induslrv and enterprise he secured an ample fortune, and died 
leaving large landed possessions." At least, part of this tra- 
dition is correct. Henry Freeman married a woman, Eliza- '"■'?' \ 
beth lionne. ot French Huguenot extraction, and lie died leav- 
ing large landed possessions. 

Mrs. Ashbell Freeman, wl o was a daughter of James Free- 
man, who was a grandson of Henry, says, in a letter to Rev. 
F. Freeman, dated June 2/. 1^5/. when she was 81 years old, 
"i\Iy father, oorn 1740, said that his forefather was from Eng- 
land : mv husband, born 1755. told me the same. Three ])rotli- 
ers came over. " This establishes the fact that Henry Free- 
man and Edward Freeman came from England, but, unfortu- 
nately, does not give the date of their arrival on this continent. 
If the fact is, as stated by Mrs. Freeman, that "three brothers 
came over," then John, the elder brother of Edward and I ii'ury, 
accompanied them to America, or came over at some other 
time. We find the name of John Freeman on a petition of 
the inhabitants of Middlesex Co., N. J. (the County in which 
Woodbridge is situated), to the Government in 1710, and we 
find no further trace of him. This would be in accordance 
with the facts; as. if John came to America, he certainlx re- 
turned to England, as we find him marrying a second wife in 
St. Faul's Cathedral, London, Jan. 14. 1743. 



^o GENEALOGY 

The traditinn that "three brothers came over" may owe its 
ori<^nn to the fact tliat the family consisted of l)ut three 
lirothers. 

The records of the ships tliat sailed from England for Amer- 
ica between A. D. i()00 and 1700 are very incomplete. In lO.y 
Thomas Mayhew was appointed, for a term of twenty-one 
vears, to keep a record of all those persons who left England 
"to passe into forraigne partes," but of JMayhew's lists nothmg 
is to be found but the fragment commencing at page 287, and 
that continues but for a few months. In 1874 John Camden 
Hotten made a search among the State Papers in the Public 
Record Office in England for the names of "those who went 
from Great Britain to America between i^oo and 1700," and 
published the result. In the introduction to his book he says : 
"It must not be imagined that the following pages furnish a 
complete list of the early settlers in z\merica." Then, after 
referring to ]\Iayhew"s list, he says. "It cannot be doubted l)ut 
that other lists were made, but they are either lost, or among 
the mass of papers still uncatalogued at the Record Office. We 
learn incidentally that shi])s left England daily for America, 
but no records of them, or of their passengers remain. We 
know that man\- ships sailed from IJristol, among others The 
Aiis^cl in,hncl and the James, conveying the Rev. Richard 
Mather, and the Kev. Daniel Maude, but no records of dei^ar- 
tures from that port remain. Where are the lists of IVic .Ira- 
bc/la. and otlur ships in which John Winthrop, and the found- 
ers (if Massachusetts embarked? These are bui a few instances 
to show how ver}- imi)erfect are (un- records of the early set- 
tlers."

A few vears after his marriage Andrew Freeman left Wood-

his absence from home, the Indians attacked the settlement, 
and the inhabitants only saved their lives by escaping to the 
block-house built to repel such attacks. Mr. Freeman return- 
ing while the attack was in progress, was shot at by the In- 
dians, but was enabled to reach the block-house nniiurt. 

( )n account of the hostility of the Indians he was com- 
pelled to leave Wyoming. Putting his wife and the little 
Hannah on one horse, and the eldest son William on another, 
he took the other b(W' on a horse with hiuL and, by the hv\]) 
of a friendlv Indian, they escaped and returned to New Jersey, 
f'.efore thev left Wyoming they secreted the most valuable 
of their household goods in the hollow of a large tree that 
had been shown them by the Intlian who assisted in their 
escape. .Afterwards, Mr. Freeman rctm-ned to Pennsylvania 
and found the i)roperty intact. After his return to New Jer-

spent the remaining days of his life. Late in life his wife
