Middletown, New Jersey. 

i6S8, iNIch. 25. He had a patent for land granted to him. which was s'jrveyed June 
9, 16SS. Jan. 4, 16S8, he recorded his cattle-jnark. Apr. 30, 1703, John Stout, in a 
conveyance of land to his son Richard Stotit, lying in Middletown, mentioned the iaiids 
of Richard Mount and William Layton as abutting properties. 

1702, Aug. 17-18, he .made his will as William Lo.vjto)'.; proved June 28, 1708, in

It is possible there v. as some kinship between John Layton, of Newport, R. I., who 
deeded land iv, Richard Tew in payment for swine on Jan. 14, 1674, and William Lav.ton, 
of Monmouth County, and perhaps even more likely that a kinship existed between 
\N'iIliam Layton, of Monmouth County, and Thomas l_awt(jn, of Portsmouth: "Ihomas 
Lawton, of Portsmoutli, Rhode Island, to Giles Slocum of ye aforesaid town and proymce 
2 whole shares of land b)- mc purchased of \V'= Reape of the place cr>mmonly called Nava-

a HIS'JOUIC.AI. MISCELLANY 

2 WILLLAM LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, received his father's lands in 
Middletown, as appears under a conveyance in 1710, from Richard Mount to Eden Bur- 
rows, wherein his land is mentioned as upon the boundary, and which land we know had 
been his father's. However, Aug. 10, 1704, he was settled at JMeehold, where he con- 
veyed land for £13, to Samuel Layton, which he had by deed from Ricliard ILir'sh.orne 
Aug. 22, 1690, bounded by formerly Richard Stout, jr., George Keith, formerly William 
Scott and the Gully. The witnesses were Thomas Layton, John Lawrence and Willi am 
Lawrence. By deduction he was born between 1660 and 1670, and came v.-ith his father 
when a mere lad to Middletown. 

173^ -'"^Pi"- lOi he made his will; proved ALiy 15, 1735, calling himself of Ercchold, 
yeomrn, and mentioned: 

to liis_"cousin William Layron, Jr., of Freehold, yeoman, all that tract of land I purcliased of \Viiliam 
Scolt;^' wife Mary, upon whose deaih the residue of His estate is to pass to the aforesaid William La) ton, 
Jr. Executors: Jonathan Forman, Esq., \N'il!iam Maddock. Witnesses: James Stanley, George Secmur, 
Mary Roniaine. He made his mark to the wilL His inventory was taken Feb. 5, 1734, and amounted 
to £257,09,00. 

The "cousin" to whom he left his property was no doubi" a nejihew- named after 
him, and probably the son ot his brother John La)'ton, 5, yet he may have been a son 
of his brother, Samuel Layton, 6. 

3 THO^LAS LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, resided at Lower Freehold, 
where he died in 174 1, for Sept. 26, of that year, letters of administration upon his estate 
were issued to Joseph Williams and Peter Romeyne, of Lower Freehold, yeomen. 

Issue 

8 Sarah Laj-'ton married Joseph Williams 

9 Rachel Layton married Peter Romyne. They had: Christopher Romyne 

who died 1748, and whose wife was Rebecca; Layton Romyne and Samuel 
Romyne. 

There was a Thomas Layton who, with wife Lydia, sold larid on Manasquan River 
to Christopher Romine, of Bethlehem, Hunterdon County, N. J., Nov. i, 1742. 

Freehold, N. J'., Deeds. 

4 ANDREW LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, recorded his earmark in Mid- 
dletov/n, N. J., Mch. 11, 1725-6, and this same mark is next found recorded to another 
Andrew Layton, Dec. 24, 1764, v/ho was the son ot John Layton and brother of Satety 
Layton.

10 John Layton 

5 JOHN LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, recorded liis earmark in M'ddle- 
town, N. J., Mch. 3, 1719-20, which June, 1761, was passed on to his son \\ illiani Layton, 
and still later, June 20, 1765, to William La}-ton's nephew, and ol course John L:ty ton's 
grandson, Anthony Layton.

LAVTOX IWMU.Y OF IMOXMOL IH COrX'lV, X. j. '3 

SAMURL LAYTOX, son of William l.ayton, i, married Janet, tlaughtcr of 
William Oliphant. They were members of the Mitkiletown Baptist Chvirch in 1712, and 
he was visited by a committee from this church in 1722. He died about 1732, and his 
wife was still alive April, 1734. From deeds recorded at Freehold, X. J., it appears that 
May 30, 1732, his widow Janet, signing by her mark, and his son Samuel I.aton, as heir 
to his father Samuel Layton, deceased, conveyed to Andrew Layton his brother (and 
son ot Samuel and Janet), land bounded by Thomas Layton on the Xoi-th, by John 
l,a)'ton on the East, by Stephen xAumack and William Layton on the South. Again the 
same indi\'iduals were grantees ALiy 30, 1733, to Samuel and Janet Lay ton's son, 
Thomas Layton, Jr., of iitt)'-four acres ot land which said deceased Samuel Layton had 
b)- deed from John Heritage X'ov. 1, 1707. Thomas Layten, Jr., and Samuel Layten, 
yeoman, conveyed to Andrew Layten, yeoman, part ot a tract of land granted to Samuel 
Layton, the deceased father of the said Thomas, Samuel and Andrew Layten, by deed 
from John Heritage X'^ov. i, 1707. 

Issue* 

13 William Layton, supposed; as both he and the father of Samuel Layton, 6, 

were christened William, but there is no evidence to prove such a son, 
except he was the legatee named in the will ot William La)'ton, 2. 

14 John Layton 

15 Samuel Layton 

16 Andrew Layton 

17 Thomas Layton 

10 JOHX LAYTOX, son of Andrew Layton, 4, must have stood in this relation, 
and have married a daughter of Safety Bowne, from the tact that the names ot his oldest 
sons were Andrew and Safety Layton (alter their respective grandfathers), and because 
the earmark of Andrew Layton of 1725-6 is next found recorded to an Andrew Layton 
in 1764. 

1761, Mch. I, he made his will, which is recorded in Trenton, X'. J.; proved May 13, 
1 76 1, and refers to "my four eldest sons, viz.: Safety, Andrew, John and ^^'il]!am," 
Vv'hich implies that he had more, and the will of his son Andrew Layton proves that they 
were James and Samuel Layton. 

Issue 

18 Safety Layton 

19 Andrew Layton 

20 John Layton; probably it was he who had a license to marry Jane Johnston, 

of Freehold, Feb. 10, 1764. John Layton was then of Shrewsbury, and 
made his mark, and Andrew Layton was his surety. 

21 William Layton 

22 Thomas Layton

*lt is conjectured that the following Laytons were either children rr irr;uidchildreri of Samuel Layton, '': M;v i, !7-ii, Rc- 
heliah Layton, s^iin^ter, and Christopher Morris, cordwjincr, both of Mc nmouth County, Samuel Layron, surety; Nov. :S, 1751,

issue: Daniel, Abraham, William, Elizabeth, Hannah and Mary Smitli. 

35 Johannah Layton

Samuel Fa}-ton, ol the same place, and which the grantor had title to by deed from 
Theophilus Bartow June 7, 1735. 

In 1742 (Nov. i), he apparently had moved to Shrewsbur)-, N. J., for he, then of

He was on the Poor Rate and Dog Tax of 1764; was called one of the four eldest 
sons and named as an executor in the will of his father Mch. i, 1761. 

From his name Safety, I am confident that he v/as a grandson of Safety Bowne who 
in turn was a grandson ot Safety Grover. He was still residing in Shrewsbu'-y when he 
made his v.'ill Mch. 20, 1790, proved May 8, 1790, in which he left his son Jam_es 10

19 DOCTOR STEPHEN TALLMAN, son of Dr. James Tallman, 10, was bjrn 
at Portsmouth, Rhode Island, June 30, 1702, (Town Record), and died at his residence. 
Pumpkin Point, Shrewsbury, N. J., Aug. 24, 1774, aged 74 (tombstone). These dates 
are contradictory but are correctly quoted. He married Nov. 11, 1724, Mary, daughter 
of John and Sarah (\\'ilson) Potter, born Mch. 2, 1707. See also Austin s Genealogical 
Dictionary of Rhode Island. Dr. Stephen Tallman was the founder of a large family 
located in Shrewsbury, N. J. The Tallman blood ran riotously. Through what ante- 
cedent strains it was derived, I can only conjecture, but there is ample proof that its 
fiery character appeared in six generations, commencing with Dr. Stephen Tallman, 19. 
They were unmoral and irreligious; ugly tempered and defiant of law and social restraint. 
In these respects they came close to primitive man. They lived the life of landed squires, 
owning many slaves and much land, and possessed much ready wealth. They were v/ell 
educated and contributed many members to the medical profession, and a goodly number 
of natural children to the world at large. During the Revolutionary War the family was 
split with many more of its members adhering to the Whig than to the Tory cause. In 
some instances it was brother against brother. 

In 1728, Dr. Stephen Tallman was residing in Portsmouth. 

In 1731, he was called Esquire, in the same place. 

In 1733 and 1738, he was called yeoman, of Portsmouth. 

Dr. Stephen Tallman became involved in one of the largest real estate speculations 
ever initiated in the State of Rhode Island. This ambitious ventin-e failed, and brought 
ruin to him and his associates. June 18, 1747, Joseph Scott, of Nev.'p)ort, m.erchant, 
deposed: that Dec. 7, 1743 there was a vendue of the lands of Stephen Tallman, ot 
Portsmouth, by the Sheriff for a judgment of court, obtained by John Potter, of South 
Kingstozvn, in the County of King's, yeoman. Part of the estate was bought by Joseph 
Scott, aforesaid, for £4,990. This property had furthermore been, in part, mortgaged 
by Stephen Tallman and others, for large sums of money, at divers times, to the Colony 
of Rhode Island. The date and the cause of Dr. Stephen Tallman's departure from 
Rhode Island m,ay largely be determined by this mishap, and it was doubtless at this 
unfortunate turn in his affairs that he sought a new home in Monmouth County, New 
Jersey, whither many of his kindred, and many Rhode Islanders, had long been settled. 
Even here trouble followed him, for IMch. 24, 1747, he was haled before the Court, sitting 
at Burlington, N. J., by John Potter, of South Kingston, King's Count)', R. L, as execu- 
tor of Sarah Potter, widow, late of the same place, to recover £351, £412 and £5301, 
evidently monies used in his recent Rhode Island land transactions. Suprcr-ic Cotrrt 
Files, Trenton, N. J. The widow. Sarah Potter, was doubtless his mothcr-;!:-!a',v, ai-.d 



TALLMAN OF NEW JLliSEY 15 

jolin Potter his brother-in-law. From the size of the loans, Sarah Potter was, evidently 
a woman ot wealth. It is regrettable that so little is known ot the origin, growth and 
collapse of this business venture, which so strongly aj^pealed to these thrifty people and 
which resulted so calamitously. 

With the remnants of his fortune Dr. Tallman acquired Mch. 23, 174I, from James 
and Kezia Tallman, one ot the largest and most fertile estates in Monmouth County. It 
lay in Shrewsbury township, on an arm of the Shrewsbury River, and ultimately auiounlcd 
to seven hundred acres and its devious and indented shores presented about three miles 
of water front. Here, upon a knoll whose shores sloped to the water, and which was 
commonl)- called Pumpkin Point, he settled in Sally Heap's priniitive house,* v/hich he 
shortly, (in 1741), converted into a kitchen, and attached it to the fine and commodious 
residence he erected on this site. The estate passed from his descendants, in 1837, to 
the Newbolds, then to the Shermans, and finally, to a land syndicate, tor Sico,coo., it is 
stated, consisting of William Conover (Black Bill), Stacy Conover and others, who 
plotted the land, and who still own the property and run the old house as the Potapeck 
(Port-au-Peck) Hotel. 

Upon this estate Dr. Stephen Tallman lived in prodigal fashion until his death. His 
plantation was worked by his negroes under his supervision and he practiced medicine. 
He established his sons upon large farms, and they seemingly, had the funds in their 
possession to pay him for the same, especially so in the instance of his son James, to 
whom he conveyed the Potapeck property, Apr. 2, 1774, only a few months preceding his 
death, for the large sum of £3700. It is because of this disposition of his estate during his 
lifetime that he probably found it imnecessary to make a will. His daughters, it is 
traditional, received large amounts in cash. Some of his family silver marked s.T.M. 
(Stephen and Mary Tallman), is now in my {Jo/vi E. Stilli^ell, 191 51, possession. His 
professional mantle fell upon his two sons, Joseph and Christopher Tallman, who, with 
four descendants, through his daughter, Martha Tallman, wife o'i Col. Thomas Sea- 
brook, and a father. Dr. James Tallman, and an uncle Dr. Peter Tallman, make a total 
contribution to the healing profession of no less than nine of Tallman blood in six 
generations. 

•William Reap, of Rhode Island, became one of the Monmouth Patentees in 1665. Ke died not long after this date, and 
his widow, Sarah, succeeded to his proprietary riglits, and soon became an active land investor: 

.67^, Oct. ;. She, late widow and rebidsnt of Newport, R. I., bought from Thomas Potter, of Deal, near Shrewsbury, for 
£40, the neck of land in the township ot Shrewsbury, called Naromson. 

1685, Sept. ;:. Sarah Reap, of Shrewsbury, X. J., widow, bought from Jonathan Marsh, of Newport, R. 1., merchant, lands 
in Shrewsbury. 

169J, Xo\-. ^o. Sarah, widow of William Reap, and her son William Reap, Jr., sold to Anthony Pintard, merchant, the 
proprietary lands of her deceased husband, situated in Shrewsbury, N. J. 

1703, Feb. 4. Sarah Reap, of Shrewsbury, N. J., conveyed to her grandson William Brinley, of the same place, land lying on 
Naromson Neck. 

171 c, Apr. 12. Sarah Reap, by will of this date, gave to her grandsons William .\Iarnh, Gent., of Flushing, L.I. , and William 
Kr;nky, of Shrewsbury, N. J., her h^nds. 

1716, Apr. 14. ' William Bnrdey, of Shrewsbury, N. J., conveyed his interest in the plantation whereon his grandxother, 
Sarah Reap, deceased, dwelt, to Sarah Reap's other grandson William Marsh, which estate she had willed them jointly. 

1720, May. 10. William Marah, of Flushing, Long Island, Gent., now the sole owner of this es'ate, conveyed it for £700, to 
James Tallmr.n, Gent., Z'^^ also of Flushing, Queens County, Long Island, N. Y., and the property was described as: patented lands 
lying in Shrewsbury, N. J., calied Potapeck, whereon Sarah Reap dwelt. That portion lying to the North and East was the part 
which had fallen in the division of Saran Reap's estate to William Brinley, and which he conveyed to William Marsh, .Apr. 14, I7l6. 
The upland and meadow amounted to three hundred and fifty acres. For some reason there was a confirmation of this title in the 
following deed: 

1731, Mch. 31. William .Marsh, Gent., of Shrewsbury, N. J., for seven hundred pounds, conveyed to James Tallman, Gent., of 
the same place, the neck of land called Potapeck, Iving in' Shrewsbury, being the same whereon Sarah Reap dwelt, and some other 
small parcels of meadow which did not belo.-ig to the said Sarah Reap, part or parcel of the said neck containing three hundred 
and fiity acre? more or less, of upland ami meadow. _ 1 1 • 

1741, Mch. 23. Bv a conveyance of this date James Tallman, 47, (and Ke/la his wifej, soa of J.imcs Tallman, 30, sold this 
p.'operty to Dr. Stephen Tallman.

They v.-ere inspired to this activit\' by a chain ot circumstances which I brieflyenumerate. 

Samuel Tallman remembered that his uncle Humphrey Williams told him that some 
day he would inherit great wealth through the wite of Dr. Stephen Tallman, and retained 
a vague recollection that her name was Mary Morgan, though he may have received the 
impression of her name from otlier sources: further, tb.at at various tirries men came to 
Moninouth County in search ot information concerning the Tallman family, pi.-rhaps 
concerning Mary, the wife of Dr. Stephen Tallman. This first \'isit was about i856.

employed by Peter Tallman,*' lormerly of Canada, to hunt tor an English estate and 
which his researehcs led him to believe belonged to the heirs of Dr. Stephen Tallnian and 
not to the heirs ot Peter Talhnan. 

It was an easy thing to inflame the minds oi many membei's of the Tallman famih , 
and he eiitertained them with stories ot a very wealthy ancestor, a herdsman, in England, 
by the name ot Morgan, or by another statement tJiat this ancestor was an owner of 
immense coal mines in Wales, and dying a bachelor, had left his vast property to two 
sisters, one Elizabeth, who married and settled in the State of Pennsylvania, for whose 
heirs he had already secured an immense sum, and the other, Mary Morgan, the wife of 
Dr. Stephen Tallman, whose descendants he had now joyfully locaied. The English or 
Welsh properties had been sold and the nioney placed in chancery, where it was drawing 
interest ro the amount of one million dollars a year. I have little doubt that David 
McAlpine was a shark working both ends of the line, the descendants oi Peter Tallman, 
in Canada, and the descendants ot Dr. Stephen Tallman in Monmouth County. 

There was much uncertainty left in the minds of all, when David McAlpine left tor 
his home at Fonthill, Pelham Township, Canada, West, for they took no memoranda of 
the names and places he supplied them. One person claimed that Mary Morgan's sister 
settled in Connecticut, and that one Morgan, an assistant at the tollgate, called Lam.e 
Morgan, came from that state to Eatontown, N. J., but left and returned to the home of 
his Connecticut relatives. Another account states that Ethan Allen and his brother 
Charles Allen, descendants of Stephen Tallman, received private information trom Mr. 
McAlpine, bought him off and obtained the money in chancery. Occasionally letters 
came from McAlpine or his wife, and then ceased. Members of the family became sus- 
picious of each other, employed various lawyers and finally the whole effort fizzled out 
for v.'ant of exact data and connecting links. 

John R. Livingston, the negro previously mentioned as interviewed, was the son of 
John Livingston, a slave of Barnes Smock, of Middletown, and had married Rosanna 
Williams, a wench of Dr. Stephen Tallman, of Pumpkin Point. They lived with their 
respective masters and had born to them (slaves of Dr. Tallman), a daughter Rosanna 
Livingston, and a son, the aforementioned John R. Livingston, who was reputed to have 
reached the age of one hundred and fifteen years, in 187S, when he was residing at 
Branchport, N. J. This would make his birth date, if his age is accurately given, the 
year 1763, an.d his age at the time of Dr. Stephen Tallman's death, eleven years. I am 
precise in giving these dates as I have seen them recorded by certain members of Mr. 
Samuel Tallmxan's family, for I doubt much whether a youth of eleven, a black and 
uneducated, could recite from recollection, accurately, many stories concerning Dr. Tail- 
man, his wife and children, without drawing upon a very lively imagination. 

When Livingston was interviewed in 1878, it was stated that he was in the field 
plotighing, a remarkable fact when you consicler his great age, which leads me to believe 
that his age was exaggerated, and if so, his years, at the time he lived with Dr. Tallman, 
were necessarily proportionately less. Further, it must be recalled that any testimony 
from the ignorant and prejudiced slave race, with its persistent animosity towards it>. 
severe masters, would hardly contribute truthful and unembellished statements against 
their former oppressors. However, from other sources in a general way, it has come 
down that the Tallmans were a fair complexioned and ugly-tempered race, and doubtless 
Livingston repeated that which he had heard, rather than that which he had seen. From 

'One of '.\:z sons of Oliver Tallm.in had .1 son Peter, who became a Royalisr and moved to Canada. It v.-as probably in the 
employ of some of his ilescemlants that McAlpine came to Monmouth County to ascertain whether there was any possibility o! 
recovering the famiU-'s forfeiterl estate bv reason of their Toryism.

his statements it would appear that Dr. Stejihcn 'I'aUnian handled his slaves severely 
and even cruelly, 'i'hey were likely to be whipped if he were angered, and if this failed 
to curtail their petty rebellion, he would sit them with bare pelts on heated briek>, uni.! 
when aged, sick and bedridden himself, he woukl command them to stand by hj,- bed, 
and with his cane terminating in a spear point, would prick them. Little serious dan;agc 
was iikelv to be done, as a sla\-e vvas a too valuable commoditv to hazard his well being or 
Hfe. 

Dr. Tallman practiced medieiiie and farming iind his fame was a practitioner was 
extensive, and patients came from tar and near. 

He was confined to his bed about two months, was attended by his sons the two 
doctors, and finally succumbed to gout and the infirmities of age. He died in the same 
room, on the first floor, that his wife had occupied with him throughout their married 
life and in which she too had died. 

Aftv^r three days his remains were interred, without funeral services of any kind, on 
his own farm, in v.hat was and still is called the Potapeck, Pumpkin Point and Tailman 
burying-grcund. The attendance \^•as very great as he was esteemed in the community. 

It is said that he left a will wliich was read by its makers and holders, Dr. John 
Johnson, of Eatontown, and Dr. Samuel Tenhroeck, of Slirewsbury, on the return of the 
family to the homestead. 

Further, upon the recollection of John R. Livingston, he gave to each of liis sons, 
Stephen, Dr. Christopher, John, Samuel, James and Dr. Joseph, the farms they were 
residing upon, and to the latter likewise his medical belongings. To his daughter 
Martha, about £ico, and to his daughter Sarah, betw^een £ioo and £200, discriminating 
against the former daughter as she was the wife of a very rich man, Major Thomas 
Seabrook. 

In appearance Dr. Stephen Tallman was of medium height and strongly built. He 
had a clean shaven face and wore his hair powdered white and drawn back into a queue. 
He was generally considered a fine looking man. His wite, Mary Talhnan, was good- 
looking, though not a handsome woman. She was of medium size, large boned, heavily 
built and possessed a very fair complexion. She was always very tender and good to her 
family. She was an eccentric woman, with an easily provoked, high temper and was 
considered by her slaves, a witch. Rosanna Livingston, a household slave, seemed to 
have come in for a share of her ill will, tor on one occasion when she was setting the dmner 
table, her niistress threw a handful of knives and forks at her head, with such precision 
that Rosanna looked as if she were a female St. Sebastian, and the irate old lady held her 
to her work notwithstanding her suffering. This scene had a tragic ending, for the 
family were hardly seated at the dinner table, when Mrs. Tallman was stricken v.irh 
apoplexy. She was carried to her bedroom, remained speechless and paralyzed and was 
attended by her husband for nine days, when she died. 

The remains lay at her residence for two days and the attendance at the funeral u-as 
large. The customary eight pallbearers, four bearing the remains one-halt the wr-y, and 
four the remaining portion of the w-ay, carried the corpse, which was interred m the 
adjacent Tallman plot. Neither Dr. Tallman nor his wife ?\iary, were apparently 
members of any church, though they occasionally attendee! service at Shrewsbury. 

Mary Tallman, the wife of Dr. Stephen Tallman, v\'as living as late as 1774, when, 
with her husband, she joined in making the coiucyance to her son James,, -\pr. 2, of thai 
year; and if the assertion is correct that she died before her husband, it .must have been 
between tliis date, Apr. 2, and Aug. 24, 1774, when her husband Dr. Stephen Tailman,

,iicd. Thar she predeceased her husband rests entirely upon the doubtful testimony of 
|i)hn R. Livingston. Tliar she died close to the time of her husband's death is likely, as 
no tombstone marks her burial place, which is a matter for comment and not easily 
understood.

and two acres of meadow, about equal to five acres, which was conveyed to the said 
Stephen Talliiian Apr. 3, 1772, by a deed from his father Dr. Stephen Tallman, deceased, 
for the sum of £800, who claimed it by deed of Joseph Stillwcll and Edward Taylor, 
executors of Mary Seabrook, June 6, 1760. 

He died, unmarried, about 1790. His burial services were conducted by the Rev. 
John Woodhuii, the Presbyterian minister, of Freehold and Shrewsbury, at his house and 
at the grave in the Tallman plot. There were no hearses in those days and by reason of 
the long distance, his remains were carried in an open farm wagon, with four carriers at 
the house and four at the grave. Like all funerals about this period, his was largely 
attended and business in the community for many miles about suspended. 

Lea\'ing no will his estate was administered by James Tallman and Thomas Sea- 
brook, with a bond of £1000, dated June 21, 1790. 

The inventory of his personal estate amount to £1,500, and included six negroes. 

At the time administration was granted, the following representatives of Stephen 
Tallman renounced, viz.: Rachel Tallman, I\Iartha Seabrook, Polly Williams, Patty 
Tallman and Mary Tallman, and in 1791, the Commissioners divided his lands among: 
Sarah Wardeil, wife ot John; Mary Tallman; Martha, wife of Thomas Seabrook; Joseph 
Tallman; James Tallman; children of Samuel Tallman, deceased, and Rachel Tallman, 
widow of Samuel, deceased. 

Stephen Tallman had a natural daughter Ann (Nancy) Tallman, who was taken 
care of by her father until she married Mathias Wood,* an Englishman, who ca.me to 
America at the tim.e of the American Revolution and who ser\-ed in the American Army 
until the close of the war. They resided at Mechanicsville, N. J., and were buried in the 
cem.etery of that place. 

From the testimony Oi John R. Livingston, it would appear that Stephen Tallman 
was a very "queer" man and severe with his slaves, not infrequently having them 
whipped till their backs were laid open and the blood ran freely. He was morose and 
exclusive. It is lurther said of him that he saw from his room w'indov/ a w'oman crossin.o; 
his orchard, on her way to church, who plucked apples from his heavily laden trees, 
rather than to lilt those equally good, from the ground, which angered him to such a 
degree that he raised his gun, and with expert aim, cut a limb squarely off aboveherhead. 
He was indicted by the Monmouth Grand Jury for various offences, before whom 
he was accused as an "ill designing and disorderly person and of a wicked & malicious 
mind," and for having, on the 4"" day of September, 1784, killed and destroyed a mare 

•Mathias Wood was a short, thick, henvy-set man, with dark hair and complexion. Like most Englishmen, he was quite a 
sportsnian. They had issue: Ann Wood v.ho married Britt.-Lin, son of MontiUion WooUey, and Rhodorick Wood.

Dr. Christopher Tallman's Tory proclivities apparentiv made him unpopular and 
unsafe m Snrewsbury, tor being sick and apprehensive of d'eath, he made a will dated 
Shrewsbury, September 19, 1772, to which he appended a codicil August 16, 17-8, when 
he speaks ot n,mselt as still sick, late of Shrewsbury, but now of the "narrows on Long 
Island. His illness was apparently not vital for he lived twelve vears thereafter. 

He studied medicine with his father who established him on a tarm at Tinton Falls 
^. J., wnere he practiced medicine and farming. His brother Dr. Joseph Tallman suc- 
ceeded to the father's practice at the homestead and the brothers became fHendlv rivals 
m the same held. On one occasion Dr. Joe extracted a tooth, which was followed bv 
bleeding to a state of collapse, and in great fright he sent two slaves ahorse to his brothe'r 
Ur. Christopher, who, from, the excited blacks got the tale and laconically replied, "tell 
the man wno pulled it to stop it." More humane feelincrs overcame him,' however, and 
tie arrived with the messengers, successfully applied a remedv taken from Dr. ]oe's own 
medicine chest, put it in his pocket, and despite Dr. Joe's protests, carried it away with- 
out revealing its nature.

was a friend of Capt. Richard Lippincott and testified for him in the Dritisli court 
martial, held in New York, June, 1782. 

Wardell was in a state of everlasting indulgence and persistent repentance. While 
under the effects ot liquor he broke his leg and no sooner cured than he repeated the 
drink and the accident, and these again once more. Three breaks were too many lor 
him and he succumbed to his habits and mishaps, leaving his widow, whosuctesst'ully 
managed her farm till old age and malignant disease of the throat, after miich suffering, 
ended her life. Her funeral services at the house and the grave were conducted by the 
Rev. Samuel Budd, a Methodist minister, ot Long Branch, and her remains were in-

death, who had removed thither to her relatives upon the demise of Ur. Christopher Tallman. After some years Elias Tallman

(Herbert) Curtis, ot Squan, X". J., by license dated June 26, 1765. His death occurred 
during the v.'inter of 1788, as December 8th, ot that year, administration was granted to 
Rachel Tallman and James Tallman, both of Shrewsbury, with a bond of £1,000, upon 
his estate. Both his widow, Rachel Tallman, and James Tallman, the administrators,

amounted to £370-1-0, and a second appraisal taken the samic year, amounted to 
£560-19-08. His t'uneral services were conducted by the Rev. John Woodhull, and he 
was interred in the Talhnan burying-ground. 

He v.as a man ot integrity, agreeable manners and of domestic virtues, but, like the 
rest of the Tallmans, he could swear beyond the average amount. 

He was an industrious v/orker and kept his slaves ahvays busy. He was wont to 
visit his father-in-lav/, going on horse back through the swamp, where at one particular 
spot, climbing a tree, he couKl observe his slaves at work and to their surprise pick out 
the laggards on his return. This worked well until his overseer, one Andrew McCard, 
noticing!; a black speck in a tree not tar from where the negroes were at work, discovered 
its nature and by caretul scouting he cautiously removed the neighing mare and her foal 
which had guided him to the spot, and rode her home. Upon Tallman's descent, m.inus 
a h(jrse v/hich he supposed had broken loose, he trudged home with his coat on his arm, 
foot-sore and weary. To his vvife's query as to his condition he answered, "T got off my 
horse in the swamp tor something and she got away from me and ran otT." '\Vhon he 
subsequently knew the facts he greatl\- enjoyed the joke at his own expense. 

Samuel Tallman, as described by John R. Livingston, was a remaikaiily handsome 
man, of slender but good figure, and a noticeably fine comp!exio!i. He v/as never iobust,

45 JAMES TALLMAN, son of Dr. Stephen Tallman, 19, died Apr. 5 [25 ?], 1S27, 
in the eighty-third year of his age, as appears upon his tombstone at Pumpkin Point, 
hence he was born in the year 1744-5, ^""^ could not possibly have been the sen born to 
Dr. Stephen and Mary Tallman, Aug. 11, 1725, at Portsmouth, R. L The natural 
inference therefore is that the first son, James, lived quite a number of years, perhaps 
fifteen to twenty years, and dying, his father called the next son born to him thereafter, 
James. 

1774, Apr. 2. Dr. Stephen and I\Lary Tallman, for £3,700, conveyed to their son 
James Tallman lands at Potapeck, deeded to James Tallman, deceased, by William 
Marsh, Mch. i, 1731, and also by deed of Nicholas Chambers to James Tallman, Dec. 17, 
^733> ^"d by deed from Jedediah Allen and brother R.alph Allen, to JamesTallman, Dec.

Mch. 23, 1741. 

Ufjon tins estate, in the old house erected by his father and still standing ('1914), 
James Tallman resided with but short intervals, imtil his death. Occasionally he re- 
sided in another house on this property, which, while he was in occupancy, was burned, 
destroying the family bible, family portraits and other heirlooms. 

James Tallman in his old age still stood six feet in his stockings, was very erect, 
gaunt, eccentric and aukv/arj. He was also a stuttering man, carried with him a long

lash whip, for use on man and beast, and possessed of great strength. When too de- 
crepit to move, he substituted for it a spear, made to hurl at his negroes. Among thcjn 
was lubs. Rose and Jack, the last of whom subsequently bought his frecLJoni. He died 
very aged and lert a son, who was recently li\ing in Long Branch, X. J. As opjxjscd to 
this tradition about Jack, is the will of his master, wherein he is set free two weeks after 
his decease. 

While a strict master, James Tallman was kind to his slaves; when in anger, an 
accomjilished swearer; destitute of religion, yet accustomed to read his Bible, and on 
Sundays ordered his slaves to church to catechise them on the text upon their return. 

James Tallman, like the other members ot his father's family, bought and sold real 
estate in his vicinity freely, but tlicre is nothing ot interest in these transactions worth 
recording. 

1762, Nov. 25. The Monmouth County Grand Jury indicted him, as "he did procure 
and had a quantity of provisions, to wit. Pork, with intention to traitorously convey the 
same to the subjects and troops of the King of Great Britain, and did send the same." 
The outcome of the indictment is not noted, and it was probably quashed.

James Tallman had a natural son b}' Deborah Parker, to whom he was engaged to

drew to Canada, on the North shore of Lake Ontario, near St. Catharines, v/hcre lands

Dear ^Tadam: — 

Yours of 1 r-^ which reached me licre this evening was rather a surprise. 1 would say that you have 
been entirely misinformed arjd the tone of your letter is alio;:cther unvarr.Tnted. The Tallman burying 
ground at Port au Peck h.^s not been sold and not one j^enny has been paid to me or to any body else 
except to Mr. Mount the undertaker at Red I'ank for carefully removing the remains and reinrerring them 
at Fairview Cemetery near Middietov/n, wfiere the stones h.-n-e beeti fully resto.-ed. The tive {^) livine 
heirs of my father, together with Mr. S. T. Bradford, the eldest sen of the Bradford family have relin- 



42 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

quishcd their rights in the piece of ground hut that docs not alTect the rights of anyone else that may have 
any. 

The facts are that tlie hurrying ground was in a disgraceful condition and niyselt and brothers \\?.d 
no money to fix it up and care for it. The fences were broken down, cattle and iiorses roamed through 
it at will, the stones were overturned and that of my mother broken in twenty pieces. The ground was 
all overgrown with weeds and briers and young trees. In short it was heartrending to visit it. At Tair- 
view everything will be looked alter and cared for fore\er. Since the burial of James Tallman about 75 
years ago, no one has been buried there but my own family's immediate predecessors, viz., my grand- 
father, wife, sister, and children ^ my father, w^ite, sister and children — the last being my father in 1SS2. 
Not one of us now lives in Monmouth Co. and are not likely to again. Not one of us has or ever had the 
slightest desire to be buried at Port au Peck. 

As my grandfather Stephen S. Tallman was the sole heir to James Tallman, a bachelor, who estab- 
lished the burying ground, and my father Geo. D. Tallman, Sr., was the sole heir to s^ Stephen and we five 
children were the sole heirs to s"* Geo. D., and as further, no one but the immediate members of our family 
ever buried there or took the slightest interest in the plot, we considered we had a right to remove the 
remains and place them where they could be properly cared for as well as resign what rights \wc had to the 
plot, without in any way affecting any body elses rights if any existed. 

Yours 

G. D. Tallman 

P.S. As long as I lived in Shrewsbury & had a little means I looked after the plot but later after 
losing everything 1 had in the world 6>: moving away I simply was unable to continue, hence the ruir- of 
the ground. I would be glad if you showed this letter to tne people who have been talking so unkindly 
about me. 



•TAYLOR 
OF 
MONMOUTH COUNTY* 

Among those who very early followed the original Patentees and Associates, \n the 
settlement of Middletown, was Edward Taylor, whose name immediately proclaims him 
an Englishman. His parentage, whatever may have been claimed to the contrary, is 
yet unknown, as likewise his English home. 

His descendant, the late Asher Taylor, Esq., was a most industrious, conscientious 
and well-informed antiquary and genealogist, and perhaps, the pioneer in this field in 
Monmouth County. Boasting, as he did, that he descended from the best ot Mon- 
mouth stock, it is not surprising that he rescued many interesting tacts concerning his 
progenitors. In tracing out his immediate family, he claimed that Edward Taylor, the 
founder of the American family, was the son of John, and the brother of Matthew Taylor, 
a New Jersey Proprietor. That he, Edward Taylor, through this ancestor, John Taylor, 
was the direct descendant of Baron Taillefer, a follower of William, the Conqueror, who 
died on the battle-field of Hastings, 1066, and that between the said John Taylor, his 
supposed father, and the Baron Taillefer, there were eight generations. 

The claim to this ancient pedigree rests upon the fact that Matthew Ta>'lor, who 
died in Nev/ York, in 1688, was thought to be the descendant of this family, and supposed 
to be the brother of Edward Taylor, wlio settled in Middletown. It is not disputed that 
Matthew Taylor was of the family above alluded to, but it is impossible to find any 
evidence that he was in any way related to Edward Taylor, of xMiddletown. The worthy 
Asher Taylor cites, in evidence of the kinship of these parties, a will recorded, in New 
York, that of Matthew Taylor, dated Feb. 20, 1687/8. He claims that after appropri- 
ating ten guineas to buy his friend Manning a mourning ring, he, Matthew Taylor, wills 
the residue of his propert) to his brother, Edward, residing in London, with reversion to 
Edward's son George. As a matter of fact, the will states, that, after appropriating 
twenty shillings for Capt. Manning to buy a mourning ring, and the sum ot £20 ror his 
two executors, he leaves the residue of his property to his loving brother S^!;?i!(e' 'Vaylcr, 
residing in London, with reversion to Samuel's son George. 

'Many years ago, during rhc last decade of his life, Asher Taylor, No. 185 of tliis pedigree, allowed me to copy his notes on 
the Taylor family. These constiiute a br-je portion of thi:. Taylor yencalotf)-, subjected to coriections, additicns and rcarr_ar.ee- 
mcnt. M-. H-rn'm F. T).::<t-< likewise rubiiihed this A-incT Tayior gcncalcsy. with meinor:irda of the 'I'avlor i:.tcrm.irri34;cs, in his 
magazi.^c, Th: "J-'neyman, Vol. I'llI, No. 1 , and succeeding numbers.

44 HISTORICAL Ml.SCF.LLANY 

How tliis cnor could Imve occurred it is idle to speculate, and while it destroys the 
claim to an ]:^ng!ish pedigree, it stiil leaves the American family a record rich in hillness, 
historic interest, and one ot which they may well be proud. 

If any further evidence is wanting that it was a mistake to assign Edward Taylor 
as the heir o( Matthew, and that it was following Matthew's decease, and in the >car 
169; that he came to America, it may be found, in the old Town Book, of Middletown, 
which records his, (Edward's), cattle-mark, in 1684, ^"d i" t'le Book of Land Patents, 
at Perth Amboy, in \shich arc recorded grants, Jan. 13, 1692, of two tracts of land of one 
hundred acres, in Middletown; another tract of one hundred acres, Dec. 28, 1685; 
another tract ot one hundred and sixty acres, July 27, 1686, in Middletown; and in 1687, 
of still another tract ot one hundred and fifty acres. 

It also follows that most ot his children were horn here, and not in the mother 
country. Ot the lite ot Edward Taylor, the First, littde if anything is known. Fie died 
in the year 1710, atter jiaving accumulated a large estate, principally in lands, which 
were divided among his children. They were started in life prosperously, and each and 
all improved his condition, so that the tamily at once became prominent and opulent. 
The few writings of the first comer, that are in existence, prove that he was intelligent 
and educated, and that he belonged to the highest class that migrated to cur shores in 
the early days of its colonization.

Edward Taylor, commonly called "Ed.ward Taylor, Esq.," was an active, intelli- 
gent man, possessed ot a liberal education. 

In 1768, 1772 and 1774, he was a Member of the Assembly. 

At the commencement of the Revolution, he was among those active in raising 
supplies to aid the Boston people in their effort to avoid taxation without representation. 
This activity gained him the animosity of his Tory neighbors, v.ho tried to have hirn 
impeached and his property confiscated. For prudential reasons, he then became less 
sctive, but was arrested several times and had great difficulty in keeping o;it of trouble.

nrst from one party, then the other. He succeeded in navigating through tlic storm 
,i:u! was eventually able to transmit his large estate to his descendants. 

.Among other pieces of real estate Edward Taylor owned was i/,^-o ot the I'iovince 
,.f East New jersey, which was a Proprietary right bought by liim, in 1749, ot John 
I.ippit, who succeeded to it, as heir of his mother, Sarah, daughter of John Throck-

I.ippit, his like share, heired from his mother, which gave Edward Taylor ^-^ of i/io of 
1/4^, or 1/320 part of the whole province. 

Edward Taylor residied in the house erected by his father, in 1729, which still 
sfinds oti the highway of Middletown, East of Christ Church. 

In 1758, upon the death of his father, he succeeded him in the "Old Tavern," where 
he likewise kept store and tavern. He also built and ran the mill, since knov/n as 
".Arrowsmith's mill," and his business interests became varied and extensive.

27 JOHN TAYLOR, son of George Taylor, 4, was born in 171 5 or 17 16, and died, 
at Perth Amboy, N. J., Nov. 23, 1798. He married Phebe, sister and heiress of Gen. 
Nathaniel Heard, of Nev/ Jersey. She died, July 10, 179 1, aged about eighty-three 
years, and was buried in the Lippit Burying-ground. 

John Taylor was commonly known as "Squire Taylor," to distinguislt him from 
other members of the family. 

He owned a farm of some two hundred acres which he sold before the Revolutioriary 
^Var, reserving about a dozen acres, upon which, in 1752, he erected a large, handsome 
house, at the head of the Main Street, in Middletown, at the commencement of the Deep 
Cut, which was denominated by his neighbors as "Taylor's Folly." 

In 17S2, this house was bought by George Crawford, Esq., from whom it passed to 
the Brekmans, and recently, December, 1891, was destroyed by fire. It seemingly 
would have stood for centuries. Its entire frame was of oak, and it showed no signs ot 
Wear. General Clinton w^as a frequent visitor there, during the Revolution, and Dr. 
Bainbridge, father of Commodore Bainbridge, there wooed and won his future wife. 

John Taylor was a Sheriff, of Monmouth County, for many years, as also one of the 
judges of the Court of Common Pleas, in Monmouth County, in 1761, and doubtless at 
other times. 

Upon the breaking out of the Revolution, like many office holders, he became a 
persistent Loyalist, and was appointed, by Lorcl Howe, on his arrival in this country, to 
offer terms of reconciliation, "His Majesty's Lord High Commissioner, of New jersey," 
in coiisequctKc u\ which, he was hunted by the Whigs. His propert)", not confiscated.,

knew all about him, told Asher Taylor, Esq., that his claim, for losses, amounted to 
£12,000, far in excess of the actual figures, but nevertheless allowed by the British 
government, which no doubt iniluenced Burke to say that he was a man of large estates 
and had made great sacrifices in the Revolutionary War for the Royal cause, and \\hicii,

This estimable man was the pioneer genealogist, I believe, of Monmouth County. 
His incursions into family history provoked amusement, wonderment and ridicule, but 
he was steadfast in his pursuit, with the result of accumulating much data. Nothing 
pleased him more than to meet a kindred spirit and discuss his hobby, especially in his 
declining years, saddened by the loss of members of his family. His life, though a 
happy one was a tempestuous one. He started, when less than thirteen years of age, 
in the store of his uncle, Edward Taylor, in New York City, with whom he became a 
partner, in 1830, and so continued until 1840. Henceforth he became prominent in fire 
insurance matters, becoming the president of several such organizations, which became 
insolvent, by disastrous fires. At the tim.e of his death, Asher Taylor was Mce-President 
of the Exchange Fire Insurance Company, of New York City. He resided at various 
times in New York City, Niagara County, N. Y., Red Bank, N. J., and finally, in Jersey 
City. 

He was a man of sterling honor, an ardent supporter of the Government, dvn'ing the 
late Rebellion, and excessively severe in his arraignment ot all members of the Con- 
federacy. This feeling ot hostility also shows itself, in his writings, when reviewing the 
lives of members of his family, who, during the Revolutionary War, espoused the Royal 
cause. He was genial, upright and downright. 

He married, in New York City, June 23, 1832, Sarah, daughter of Capt. Alexander 
Coffin, Jr., born Sept. 29, 1799, and died ?vlch. 31, 1869, at 12.30 A.M., and is interred

THROCKMORTON 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY 

The Thi-Qckmortons trace tlieir ancestry into hazy periods of English history where 
they very appropriately start with one ot the name of Adam Throckmorton mentioned in 
the Worcestershire Pipe Roll, AT3. 1176. The name itself is a compilation of At Rock 
Moor Town, a town on a rock, which existed in the vale of Evesham, Fladbury, W(5r- 
cestershire, England, and v/hich apparently was the home and main seat of the family tor 
some generations. From this common ancestor probably descended a numerous pro- 
gency divided into many family groups, including the important branch seated at 
Coughton, in Warwickshire, all ot which bore arms blazoned alike or very slightly 
difi'erenced: 

Arms: Gules, on a chevron argent, three bars iremels sable. 

Crest: On a wreath an elephant's head. Some of the later branches of family replace the old crest 

with "On a wreath, a falcon volante, proper, armed with Bells Jessant, Aurum." 
Motto: I'irtii^ Sola Nobilitas; or, Morii/us Antiquls. 

Many of tlie Throckmortons rose to eminence and had their records preserved by 
contemporary British annalists, but it has been left to the profound American geneal- 
ogists, Col. C. Wicklii^e Ttirockmorton, of New York City, and Mrs. George D. .Sither- 
wood, of Bloomington, 111., to assemble all known English and American data in book 
form, books recently and independently issued, which give the last word in a magnificent 
family history. 

Tlie founder of the American family was John Tlirockmorton, a cadet ot one of the 
English branches of the family, bitt the specific claim that he was the son ot Bassing- 
bourne Throckmorton, an alderman and grocer of Norwich, 1 feel is insufficiently sub- 
stantiated. Tlie complete absence of the unique baptismal name of Bassingbourne, and 
the names q>\ Bassingbourne Throckmorton's kindred, immediate, collateral and remote, 
among the children of John Throckmorton, of Rhode Islaitd and New Jersey, is too 
powerful a rebuttal of this claim to be ignored if it be not absolutely eliminativc. \{ I 
were to hazard an opinion I should incline to the l)clief that John Throckmorton sprang 
from the line of Job Throckmorton, of Hase'ey, Warwickshire, an outstanding Puritan 
of his time, who diet! 1628.

76 1^1.ST0RI(:\L MISCl-iJ.ANY 

His aih'cnt is chronicled by t!ic iniKl and kindly (iuv. \N"inlliro]'), as folh)\vs: 

"I'^eli. 5, 1631. Tlif Sliiji Lyon, Mr. VN'illiam Peirce, Master, arri\'t\l at Nainasket. Slic liroiiglit 
Mr. Williams, a godly niiiiisicr, with his witc, Mr. Throckmorton, Perkins, One, and otliers with their 
wives and rliikiren, about twenty jiasseiuTers and about two hundred tons of goods. She set sail from 
Bristol, Dec. i, i6jo. Slie had a % ery tempestuous passage, yet through God's inerey all her people came 
safe, except \\ ay his son, who tell froni the spit sail yard in a tempest and could not be recovered, though 
he kept in sight for a quarter of an hour; her goods also came in good condition." 

May 18, following his arrival, he was admitted a Freeman in the town of Salem, 
Mass., and, though he Jiad moved, iiis hog house was mentioned as a landmark in vhc 
town records as late as April 15, 1639. Further his name was perpetuated here in an 
application to a cove on Salem Harbor about two miles west of Peaches Point. 

He became a Baptist and followed the footsteps of Roger Williams, his fellov/ 
passenger in the Lro;z, into Rhode Island, in the summer o\ 1635 or 1636. 

1637, June. Later settlers, at Providence, R. I., had lands laid out tor them "as 
fully as the former portions appropriated to our neighbor Throckmorton, neighbor 
Greene, neighbor Harris, Joshua Verin, neighbor Arnold and neighbor ^^'illiams," etc. 

1638, Oct. 8. Roger Williams conveyed to John Throckmorton, as one of twelve 
individuals, an equal interest, with himself, in his Indian purchase, covering the site of 
Providence, and on April 22, 1639, sold him an interest in Chibachuwest, now called 
Prudence L'^land. The removal of John Throckmorton from Salem was not a compul- 
sory act, as was Mr. Williams', but his strong notion of personal rights and religious free- 
dom would soon have caused his expulsion. For his disaffection and estrangement from 
the Church, and his adoption of Baptist views, he was exconmiunicated by the Rev. 
Hugh Peters, who, writing July i, 1639, to the Church, at Dorchester, said that John 
Throckmorton, his wife, and others have had "the greatest censure passed upon them 
in this our church," as they "wholly refused to hear the church, denying it and all the 
churches in the Bay to be the true churches." 

1640, July 27. He, with thirty-eight others, signed an agreement for a form of 
government at Rhode Island. 

1643. Fie made application to the Dutch to settle within their jurisdiction which 
was granted: 

Whereas Mr. Throckmorton, with his associates, solicits to settle with thirty-five families within the 
limits of the jurisdiction of their High Mightinesses, to reside there in peace and enioy the same privileges 
as our other subjects, and be favored with the free exercise of their religion; having seen the petition ot tlie 
aforesaid Throckmorton, and consulted with the interests ot the Company, as this request can by no 
means be injurious to the country, m.ore so as the English are to settle at a distance of three miles from us, 
so it is granted. Mr. Throckmorton, with thirty-five English fa.milies, are permitted to settle within three 
miles of Amsterdam. Albany Records Jrom /6jS to 16^2. 

Upon the 6th of Julv, 1643, tlie following "land brief" was granted to Jan Throckmorton: 
We, ^^iliiam Kiett, director general, and the council, in behalf of their high mighty lords, the States 
General of the I'nited Netherlands, his highness the Pririce of Orange, and tiie noi;le lords, the managers 
of the Ge:ieral Incorporated NN'est India Company in Xev/ Netherlands residing, by these presents, do 
publish and declare that we, on this day the date imder>vritter,, have given and granted unro Jan Throck- 
morton a piece of land, (being a portion ot \'r-:'deland,) containing as follows, along the ]-,ast rr/er of New 
Netherlands, extending from the point half a mile, which piece of land aforesaid is surrounded on one side 
by a little ri\'er, and on the other side by a great kill, wliicli rivcr and kill on high water running, meet each 
other, surround the said land, as will more clearly appear by a map of the same wiiich has been m'lde and 
marked off by the surveyor, with the express conditions and terms that the said Jan Throckmorton, or they

who by virtue of these presents shall succeed to his action, the noble lords, the manauers aforesaid, shall 
acknowledge as their lords and patroons, under the sovereignty of the high and mighty lords, the States 
General, antl unto their director and council here, shall in all things be conlirmed as all good citizens aic in 
duty bound; proviiled also that the said jan Throckmorton and his company (associates) shall furtlier- 
niore be subject to all such burdens and im]5osts, as already have bceii enacted by the noble lords, and 
hereafter may yet be enacted. It is furthermore made an express condition that the aforesaid Jan Tiirock- 
morton, according to promise, shall settle on the aforesaid lands as many families as may otTer in the same 
manner, constituting over the said Throckmorton and his company, in our stead, in the real and actual 
possession ot the aforesaid ])iece of land, hing on the East river aforesaid, giving them by these presents 
the full and irrevocable might, authority, and special permission the aforesaid parcel of land to enter, cul- 
tivate, inhabit and occupy, in like manner as ne may lawlully do with other his patrimonial lands and 
effects, without our, the grantors in quality aforesaid, thereunto any longer having, reser\Mng or saiing anv 
part, action, or control whate^'er, but to the behoof as aforesaid, from ail assisting from this time forth and 
forever, promising moreover this transport firmly, invariably, and irrevocably to maintain, fulfil, and exe- 
cute, and to do all that in equity we are bound to do. Done in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherlands, this 
6th day of July, 1643.

Secretary. Albany Records, G.G., gS. Idsm, 173-4. 

This grant, subsequently called Throckmorton's Neck and Throg's Neck, embraced 
the eastern part of the present town. It was bounded on the north by Eastcheslcr 
neck, on the east by Eastchester bay and Long Island sound, on the south by the East 
river, and on the west by the Westchester creek.* 

Throckmorton's settlement had a short existence and was obliterated by the Indian 
uprising in the tall of 1643, when it was set upon by the savages and every vestige of it 
destroyed. Eighteen persons were killed and those who were so fortunate as to escape 
death, made their way to the Fort at New Amsterdam and "some that escaped from the 
Indian attack went back to Rhode Island," says Winthrop. Among those who returned 
was John Throckmorton. 

In 1647, John Throckmorton was living in Providence, and was asked to pa)- fifteen 
pounds, in wampum, for a house. 

1647, Feb. 27. He was granted the house and land of Edward Cope, provided he 
satisfied the Deputies of Providence, the amount of a certain lien against said property. 

1650, Sept. 2. He was taxed £1-3-4, at Providence, R. I. 

In 165;, he was Town Moderator, at Providence, R. I. 

*Upcn the extremity of tfie point is now, in course of erection (1S4S) by the United States government, 3 vcrvitroni' fortifica- 
tion, called Ftjrl Schi,yler. It is calculated, when completed, to defend this entrance and protect the city o; New York Irom foreijn 
invasion.^, ir. cop.nection with the form.id;.blc works of a similar character erected at the Narrows.

I'pon the 29th of April, 165:, John Throckmorton petitioned the director general for leave to transport Throckmorton's 
neck. In Ocicber fcilowing permission was granted, whereupon he conveyed the same to Auaustine Hermans. 

Albany Records, Court of Assize, I'o!. 2. p. 59. 

On the 5th of December, 1656, Governor Stuyvcsant ordered that Throckmorton's and Cornhill's neck (Classon's I'oir.i), 
might conie.into their jurisdict'on if thev please. Albany Records, Court of Assize, Vol. /, p. 60. 

Augustine Herman?;, ^oon after his purchase, conveyed fifty morgen of land situated on Throckmorton's neck, to Thomas

John Throckmorton was gentlemanly born, well educated and possessed of wealth. 
He became a trader or merchant in his new home, and likewise was the owner of vessels 
doubtless used in iiis commercial enterprises, which carried him to Mrginia, up the Dela- 
ware River, and to Manhattan. The ships were probably operated by others, as he was 
never, to my knowledge, spoken ot as Captain Throckmorton. His trips in them, how- 
ever, were the means ot his acquaintance with the desirable lands in Westchester County, 
Nev/ York, and the Monmouth Tract in East Xew Jersey, into whose colonization he 
entered. By deduction he was born about i6co, and arrived in this country when close 
to thirty years ot age. He died an octogenarian, while visiting his sons John and Job 
Throckmorton, at Middletown, N. J., between Mch. 17 and Apr. 2;;, 1683-4, and was 
interred in a plot of land, set aside by and mentioned in the will of his son John Throck- 
morton, which later became known as the Lippit Burying ground, and then the Taylor 
Burying ground, and now is incorporated in the Morford estate on the main highv.ay of 
the village of Middletown, N. J. 

John Throckmorton's wite was Rebecca , as appears from the Rhode Island 

County Records, Vol. J, /;. 26, and Middlesex Court Files, contributed by the most pro- 
found and generous student of the Throckmorton family, Capt. G. Andrews Moriarty, 
whose descent is through the emigratit's daughter Patience, wife of Deputy Governor 
John Coggeshall. This Rebecca was probably the wife who accompanied him from 
England, and is alluded to by Wintlirop, and again in one of Roger Williams' letters. 

Edward Covill, gent., of Bradwell, in Essex, made his will in 1678; proved Feb. 9, 
1679-80, wherein he left a legacy of £6, to his kinsman John Throckmorton, ot Midle- 
Tov/ne, in New England. There is no evidence to determine whether this girt is to the 
emigrant John Throckmorton, or to his soi\ John Throckmorton., Jr. Pioth were living 
in 1678 and there was a Middletown in Rhode Island, as well as one in Xew Jersey, and

1667, Sept. I. Capt. Thomas Salter, of Jamaica, commanded a privateer which 
captured a Spanish vessel laden with Campeachy wood. He made William Smith its 
master with directions to sail the prize to Jamaica, instead of which Smith sailed the 
vessel to New York. Thereupon Samuel Mosely, acting for Salter, employed John Rider 
to sue Smith and his associates in the Court of Admiralty. 

Smith, styling himself, Commander of the good ship niHiam, had in the Ray of 
Campeachy, apparently arrogated to himself ownership and set up Articles of Agreemen.t 
Sept. I, 1667, with. Freegilt Frogmorton, Thomas Barnes, Symon Jones, Samuel Smith, 
Thomas Davis, Jolm Haytor and Abraham Keelings, by which it was agreed that erich 
man \'/a? to have his proper share of the vessel and a proportionate share of the Cam- 
peachy wood then on board, with the Captain having two shares; that no one was to 
sell his interest except to one of the others; that if any one deserted the ship he forfeited 
his share and that all prizes were to be equally divided except that the Captain was to 
have two shares. Throckmorton's and Keeling's participation in the venture apparently 
arose from provisioning the ship after it was taken over by William Smith. No decision 
is recorded. Neiv York Wills, Vol. I, p. joj. 

1669, Nov. 6. John Throckmorton, Jr., of Middletown, in East Jersey, who, with 
his lather was the lawful heir and next of kin of his late deceased brother Freegif't Throck- 
morton, who died intestate, gave a power of attorney to his father, Mr. John Throck- 
morton, of Providence, Rhode Island, in New England, to sue for sums due the estate of 
his late brother Freegift Throckmorton, from Richard Berris [?], of Warertov.-n, or

4 JOHN THROCKMORTON, son of John Throckmorton, t, v.-as probably born 
in this country, or if not, was an infant when he reached here. He ciwelr, successively, 
in Salem, Mass., Providence, R. I., Throg's Neck, N. Y., and Middletown, N. J. After 
the massacre at Throg's Neck in 1643, he returned to Providence, but Joined in founding 
the settlement ot Monmouth County, whither he removed and abided till his decease in 
1690. His earliest record is that which connects him with Providence, R. I., where, in 
June, 1668, he engaged allegiance. It was shortly after this tliat he moved to Middle- 
towii, where, in December, 1667 (if it be not his iather that is meant), he had assigiied 
to him town lots. Shortly after his arrival in Middletown Dec. 12, 1670, he was married, 
or as the ancient record expresses it, "was coupled together," by Edward Smith, Con- 
stable, to Alice, daughter of Richard and Penelope Stout, of INIiddletown. 

If he was not already the owner of lands he was speedily put in the possession or 
such by his father, who, by deed of Mch. 3, 1672, conveyed one of his two sliares of land 
acquired as a Patentee, to his son John, while the other he conveyed to James Ashron, 
the husband of his daughter Deliverance Tlirockmorton. From the fact that Job, a 
yoimger brother, drew town lots with the father in 1667, it may be inferred that John 
Throckmorton, 4, had not yet withdrawn from the Providence Plantations, and that his 
interests were only such as his father primarily secured, and which were later conveyed 
to him. However, he soon added, by grants and purchases, to the lands conveyed him 
by his father and died seized of a large realty. 

1685, July 20. For £375, Pennsylvania currency, he bought of Robert Turner, one 
of the twelve Proprietors, of East Jersey, 1/48 undivided part of the Province of East 
Jersey, it being JX of said Turner's ,1-2 of Thomas Rudyard's undivided }^ of the Province 
conveyed by Rudyard to Turner in 1682. 

1685, Dec. 4. John Throckm.orton conve)"ed to James Bowne, Job Throckmorton, 
Joseph Throckmorton, James Ashton, Joseph Grover, Lidia Bowne, and Edward Smitli, 
each, i/io of his 1/48: and to Benjamin Borden. John Smith, John Stout and Jonathan 
Holmes, each, 1/20 of his 1/48, of East Jersey. In consideration of the forgoing pur- 
chase and claim, the Proprietors on June 25, 1688, granted and released to the said John 
Throckmorton four hundred and eighty acres at Crosswicks, in Monmouth County, 
"beginning at a Walnut tree standing on the South side of the Burlington path." 

1688, Mrh. 28. John Throgmorton sold to James Bowne 1/20 of his 1/24. Later, 
Sept. 22, 1699, James Bowne, as heir, conveyed this conveyance to his brother John 
Bowne V. ho sold the 1/20 of 1/24 to James Alexander. 

John Throckmorton drew in the first division of lands in Middletovvn: lot No. 24,

was long a Judge in the County courts, and was one of the Committee, who, with the 
sheriif, was appointed to build the first Monmouth County jail in 16S4. 

His lands amounted to several thousand acres and his purcliases are too numerous 
to mention in their entirety. 

He died after an active and useful life, in the Summer ot 1690, leaving a will recorded 
in New York and Trenton, N. J., which mentioned the following persons: 

his wife Alice, who received his dwelling and orchard at Garret's Hill, in Middletown, and one 
hundred acres adioining, and twenty acres ot meadow; his son Joseph and daughter Rebecca, who received 
the balance of his uplands and meadow, lying within ten miles ot his residence, at Garret's Hill, and to 
them likewise, upon his wife's demise, the bequest made to her. The rest of his lands and proprietorship 
he willed, equally, to his four other children, who are likewise to have one-half of the estate "tliat uoth by 
right belong to me by reason of my brother Joseph's will." Finally, he reserved for burial purposes, a 
one-quarter acre lot 'where my father is buried m Middletown." The will was written July 17, 1690; 
proved Aug. 22, 1690. Witnesses: Richard Hartshorne and Job Throckmorton. 

Alice Stout, the widow of John Throckmorton, married, second, Robert Skelton, by

of the estate of Robert Skelton was filed in New York, which was of large size and which 
was attested by Alice Jones, his relict and administratrix. 

In 1692, Robert Skelton uas Foreman of the Petit Jury in Monmouth County, and

Neck, Jan. 7 [20], 1700, owned by Nathaniel Leoiiard, who was joined in the deed b}' his 
wife, Susannah Leonard. Each family^ thereupon took permanent residence upon then-

St. James' Cathedral. He espoused the Royal side during the Revolution, and subse- 
quently moved to North Norwich, Ontario, where he died and wliere his estate is still 
occupied by his descendants. 

Tradition says that when he left Monmouth County he went to Prince Edivard's 
Island, where a tract of land had been granted him; later, he sojourned in New Jersey a 
while. He travelled in France, where lie was taught "the sword exercise." Margaret 
^^ hite, the wife of Col. John Throckmorton, was reputed the daughter of a sea captain 
and was one who by frequent trips with her father, had become an expert sailor herself. 
Once ^\■hiie on a voyage, when the captain and tlie mates became intoxicated, she 
promptly had them locked in their cabins, and, taking the helm, herself, sailed the ship 
through many dangers into port. Her portrait gives her a fine, strong face. 

1776. John Throckmorton, of Freehold, was assessed for thirty-nine acres and three 
houses — value £.1.^ ; and it was probably he who had his lands confiscated in 1778.

Royal Volunteers, was taken prisoner, on Staten Lsland, in this year, and sent to Tren-

John, November, 1782. 

1777, May 24. "Joseph Throckmorton Esq' who some time since presented a 
Memorial to the Ciovernor and Council on Behalf ot his son, John Throckmorton, then 
& still in Confinement in the City of Philadelphia, appeared before the Board & prayed 
that he might be indulged so far as to have his s*^ son removed into this State & cojifined 
at his own House at Colts neck in Monmouth County, offering to enter into Bond tor 
£2,000 or 3,r:oo., if reCRiired, for his tuture Good Behavior, & for his Appearance before 
this Board when & wherever required. 

The Council taking the affair into Consideration, were of Opinion that they could 
not form any Conclusion respecting a Prisoner without having him first before them, and 
therefore as they cannot redeem Time sufficient tor the Purpose at present, they deferred 
the Deten7iinat;on to some tuture Time."

TIITON 
OF 

NEW JERSEY* 

The first Tiltons in America were established at Lynn, Massachusetts, as early as 
1640-1. Two of them were contemporary, WilHain and John, and a great divergence in 
their years leads one to suspect that the two may have stood in the relation of older and 
much younger brother, unless we give to John a father of like name, which we are dis- 
posed to do because of an allusion in the Court records to the wile of a John Tilton, Jr., 
whose name appears in the presentments of 1642, for non-belief in and contempt of the 
ordinance of baptism. If we accept the existence of a John Tikon, Sr., he would be on a 
parity in age with William Tilton, and there would then be no need to strain the ages 
of William and John, Jr., in order to bring them into the same generation, even though 
there is no proof of the supposed John Tilton, Sr.'s, having come to this country. 

That this supposititious John Tilton, Sr., is of the closest kin to William Tilton, of 
Lynn, and, supposedly his brother, may be justly inferred because of the identity of 
names in the descendants of the two men, viz.: Peter, Samuel, Daniel, Abraham, as 
children o\ William Tilton, of Lynn, which names likewise appear among the six sons of 
John Tilton, the grandson of the supposititious John Tilton, Sr., of Lynn. 

John Tilton's history and movements more intimately concern us, as he was the 
ancestor of the Tiltons of New Jersey. 

How long John Tilton may have sojourned in Lynn prior to 1640, I know not, but it 
was shortly after this date that, actuated in all likelihood by the same feelings of religious 
unrest as possessed I.-ady Deborah Moody, he migrated, probably with her and her 
followers, to New Amsterdam, to secure a place for settlement among the Dutch. He 

*Thio genealogy of the Tilton Family was compiled by me many years ago and revised for me by my friend, the l;ite Rev. 
Uiliiam NNhite I lance, just prior to h'.s cieath. Mr. Hance v/as well qualified to render me this service. His investigation into the 
history of the Tiltons was a profound and continuous labor of many years and a matter of pride and love. In November, iu'i~, Mr. 
Francis Theodore Tilton commenced the publication in serial pamphlet form (still in issuance) his History OJ The Tittm Family in 
/fr-.frica, a \>orV; so exhaustive in character that J have hesitated to proceed v.ith printing my own manurcript. However, upon 
refiection, 1 feel that its omiision in \'oluine V, would be an abrid2;.'.'nient of the Mist'jrial and Gcnealr,^:cu! MisceHtf.y' s \-s.\uz ti.^ 
many whose fam.'.ly histories have been published in the preceding volumes and who are connected by various ties with the Tiltons. 
I have studiously avoir.ed all comparison of Mr. Tilton's w.;rl< with m.y own to avoid the possibility of even unconscious plagiarism. 
1 do not knovj that any differences will occur in tlie facts we present, but should such a situation arise I would advise a prompt 
acceptance of Mr. Tilton's statements in preference to my own as I recognize hi.m as the legitimate historian of tlic Tilton Family. 
Mr. Tilton incorp.ratcs much infnnnatio:. concerning the family alliances and the epochs in v.luch the> live; which, v/ith the personal 
history he supplies his char.acters, makes them live again. Every one may be proud of his Tilton blood and Mr. Irancis Theodore

apparently iiian-iL\l while residing at l.)-iin, and had born to him there two children at 
least, John, in 1640, and I'ctci', in 1642. in 1644, Sarah, his daughter, was born, per- 
hai\> in New .Anisurdaiii or Cjra\escnd, tluaigh the latter liad not yet become a place of 
organi'/cd settlement, or was ai least too iraich exjiosed to the hardships of early life to 
harbor an_\' exirept the niost liard)' settlers. 

John Tiltun was one ot the first settlers of Gravesend, of which place he was tlie 
Town Clerk from 1643 '^'^^ 1662, and again from 1668 to 1681. 

1646, Feb. 20. In the first division ot distril)ution of farms calletl Fhintal-ons^ ant! of 
lots called Garden Spots, John Tiltcn w-as assigned one of each. 

1652. As agent for iNIr. \Mlliam Bell he bought a farm in Gravesend of Robert 
Scott. 

1655. Jacobus Van Gurler and other Dutch settlers of Gravesend wrote to Director 
Stuyvesant stating their "daih" fears that the strange reports from Hempstead and 
Newtown that the Savages intended killing the Dutch among the English; that the 
Savages had demanded of the English of Gravesend that they should separate frinrt the 
Dutch so that they might not be in any danger; that Tilton and the Magistrates of 
Gravesend have advised the Dutch that it were best they moved away, but if the Dutcli 
would not move the English would do the best they could for them, which tliey tliink 
is poor consolation if the Savages should come; that if they leave Long Island is no 
longer inhabited by the Dutch; that the English continually communicate witli eacli 
other; that yesterday Tilton and the Sheriff of Xewtown came; today they went aw^ay 
again." And they conclude by asking for a moderate force, else an armed vessel to 
carry them, their families and possessions away. 

1656, jNIa)' 14. Letter of John Tilton, Clerk, to Director StuyA^esant iri answer to a 
complaint of Anthony Johnson in respect to intrusion on his, Johnson's, lands. Jn this 
lettei', written for his fellow townsmen of Gravesend, John Tilton alluded to Anthony 
Johnson as a Mohainmedan, and a troublesome person, .... in ti-oublesome time when 
the whole country seems to hang upon uncertainty, and all our lives in jeopard)' as by 
the great supplies Indians have ot arms and ammunitioii. It would appear that John- 
son charged the Gravesenders with encroaching upon the boundary lines of his larm, 
while they countercharged that he invaded the bounds of Gravesend, and accused him 
of being a liar, and called him likewise Anthony thezibi, which means the skunk. 

When the first evangelists ot the Quaker persuasion came to New Netherlands, the 
Governor, Peter Stuy^'esant, it appears, received them kindly, but soon after shewed a 
spirit of bitter hostility to themi as well as to the Lutherans of New Amsterdam and the 
Independents ot Middleberg. And Feb. i, 1656, an ordinance was enacted against those 
who held conventicles here and there within the Province, and against unqualified per- 
sons in such meetings who assumed the ministerial office without being called or ap- 
pointed thereto by ecclesiastical or civil authority, and penalties were trained for any 
infraction of this ordinance. So tar as regards its application to the Lutherans ot New 
Amsterdam, this intolerant law^ was vetoed, June I4, 1656, by the authorities in Holland, 
and while the Director was therefore restrained from interfering with f/iem, the English 
of Gravesend and other towns were not protected in like manner, and were little likely to 
find favor with the home authorities, and consequently might safely be proceeded against. 
Hence, in 1658, on the 8th of January, an order was issued to furnish the Sheriff oi 
Gravesend with a copy of John Tilton 's answer to the charge of entertaining a Quakeress; 
and two days later (Jan. 10) he was sentenced for harboring sonie o\ "the abominable 
sect of Quakers/' and fined £12. and costs. 



Tli;i'OX OF NEW ll'.KSi:^' 133 

On the morning of Jan. 10, 1661, the under schout of New Amsterdam aiu! .Vicholas 
Bayard came from Jamaica to (jravesend having heard there was a Quaker mcetint^ at 
the latter phice. Arri\-iiig at the house of Samuel Spicer, they learned that George 
\N'ilson, a Quaker preacher, had just held a meeting there, Inif being informed of the 
approach of the oflicers had made liis escape by so precipitous a flight as to leave his cloak 
behind. This the officers seized and also arrested Samuel Spicer, who, with Mary, the 
wife of John Tilton, liad attended a Quaker meeting, at Jamaica, the day previous; and 
on the 20th of Januar)-, John Tilton, "tor being at the Quaker meeting January 9, and 
at a Quaker meeting at Gravesend January loth," was sentenced to be banished from 
rhc Province, but, through the influence of Lady Moody, he was pardoned. 

This experience, however, does not seem to have at all intimidated this courageous 
couple, and, September 19, 1662, the Director and Council notifled the magistrates of 
all the English towns on Long Island to assist Resolved Waldron in arresting "all persons 
who attend unlawful or prohibited meetings." At the same time complaint was made 
against John Tilton, for attending meetings ot Quakers and harboring persons of that 
persuasion, and against Mary, his wife, for "attending meetings ot that abominable sect 
called Quakers." They were both arrested and imprisoned, and, October 6th, were 
sentenced to banishment from the Province. The sentence, however, v/as not put into 
execution until the following May, influence having apparently been brought to bear on 
the Director to postpone the carrying of it out until the rigors of winter should be passed. 
But, May 7, 1663, the Fiscal was ordered "to take an inventory of the estate of John 
Tilton, sentenced to banishment," and, May 17th, a warrant was issued to the Sheriff", 
commanding him to remove John and ISlary Tilton out of the Province. In this emerg- 
ency kind friends (Anthony \>'right and others), at Oyster Bay, ofi^ered the banished 
couple a home, which they gladly accepted, and that place, outside the Dutch jurisdic- 
tion, became their residence until the hurling of the despotic Stuyvesant from power, in 
1664, made it possible tor them to return home. 

Upon the banishment of John Tilton, the oliice of Town Clerk became vacant, and 
William Goulding was elected as his successor. John Tilton and his wife removed back 
from Oyster Bay to Gravesend in 1667, and, in 1668, he was again made Town Clerk, 
and annually re-elected to that ofHce till 1681, when John Emans succeeded him. 

1664, Jan. I. Aiviong those to whom land was deeded b}- the Indians at Shrewsbury, 
N. J., we find the names of John Tilton, Sr., and Jr. 

1665. Samuel Spicer and John Tilton, having become owners of Barron Island, sold 
it to Elbert Elberts (Stothoft-'). 

1665, Nov. I. George Baxter sold to John Tilton, of Gravesend, lot No. 19, in 
Gravesend, formerly owned by Thomas Greedye. 

1670, Jan. 5. In the partition of land on Garretson's .Neck and Guisbert's Island, 
into thirty-nine lots, John Tilton was assigned two ot them. 

1672. John Tilton. and John Tilton, Jr., were among those who held land in the 
^^'est meadow, Gravesend. 

1675, Sep. 6. He was commissioned one of tlie Justices of the Peace of King's 
County. 

1676, June 26. John Tilton and John Cook, who had been chosen 0\-erscer? of 
Gravesend, being Quakers, refused to take the oatli of oiticc, and. the Court of Sessions 
dispensed with it, directmg them "to give their engagements tc) Mr. Ju-vcice Hubbard to 
perform tlicir duties as overseers, under penalty of perjury," 



134 HISTORICAT, MISCK 1 LANY 

1681, Apr. 15. Jolin Tikon, of Gravcsend, sold liis rights in two acres of laiid, lot 
No. 7, on Guishert's Island, to John Carsonson, of Gra\-csend. 

1683. John Tilton, of (iravesend, was assessed on twenty-nine acres of land, one 
horse, five cows, nine sheep, and two hogs. 

16S8/9. John Tilton was among those who received land in Gravesend, iii the 
public division of the same. 

The maiden name of Mary, the wife of John Tilton, is to me unknov.-n. She was 
apparently the mother of all his children. And it was probably she who appeared, 
lacking a Christian name, but described as the wife of John Tilton, Jr., in the present- 
ments of Dec. 14, 1642, tor maintaining that baptism was no ordinance of God. 

She was a woman of strong religious convictions, and was not afraid to assert them. 
The inevitable result was tliat this arrayed lier against the authorities boLJi in New 
England and New Amsterdam. And since she, as well as her husband, was a follower 
of George Fox, she was much persecuted. 

"Goody Tilton w^as not so much condemned for assisting at Conventicles as for 
having, like a sorceress, gone from door to door to lure and seduce tlie people, yea even 
yo\ing girls, to join the Quakers." 

She died. May 23 [29], 1683, at Gravesend, and was no doubt interred in the plot 
her husband later left in his will tor burial purposes. 

John Tilton died, 1688, at Gravesend, leaving the following will:

been thought his name was Carman, but in the will of his tather-in-law it 
seems to liave been spelled bomnn^ with a small letter "b" instead of the 
capital. While the name Carman is found in Monmouth Co., at a little 
later date, Henry Bowman appears to have paid Quit Rents on land that had 
been recorded to him in 1681, and which adjoined some ot Peter Tilton's 
land. 

2 JOHN TIJ>TON, son of John Tilton, i, born 4mo. (June), 4, 1640; died probably 
early in the year 1704, his will ha\ing been probated April 17th of that year. He mar- 
ried, first, at Oyster Bay, L. I., 8mo. (Oct.), 10, 1670. Mary Coats, and second, at Flush-

children. She died, in ^Iiddletov/n, N. J., icmo. (Dec), 18, 1715. This date for her 
death is found on the Shrewsbury Quaker Meeting Records, ow the same page as, and 
following after the names and dates of birth of the children born to Walter and Sarah 
(Tilton) Herbert. And Sarah Herbert was her own daughter. 

1658, Oct. 10. Thomas Greed)'e, born in Devonshire, England, in his will of this 
date; proved Nov. 4, 165S, devised to his loving friend John Tilton, ot Gravesend, his 
estate, out oi which the said Tilton was to pay his debts, and the remainder he be- 
queathed to Peter Tilton, son of said John Tilton, excepting only one small sum the 
which I have given unto John Tilton, Jr. 

1662, Nov. 16. Order for John Tilton, Jr., to deliver up a boat he had secured. 

1664, imo., 25. John Tilton, Jr., and his brother-in-law, Samuel Spicer, were among 
those named in the first purchase of land, in Monmouth Co., from the Indian Sachem 
Popomora. This deed was acknowledged April 7, 1665, and is on record in the Secretary 
of State's Office, at Albany and in Trenton, as well as in the Proprietors' Office at Perth 
Amboy. 

1683, Aug. 13. John Tiiton, Jr., of Gravesend, sold to Martin Petersen (WykotF) 
a plantation in Gravesend. 

1684, Mch. 26. John Tilton, Jr., named as executor in the will of Obadiah Wilkins. 
1691/2, Mch. 8. John Tilton, of Gravesend, sold to Cort Stevenson, of I'latlands, 

all his Gravesend property, for £295, reserving the use for twelve months to remove 
therefrom. About this time he would seem to have left Gravesend to reside in Mon- 
mouth Co. And this deduction is further sustained by the fact that his brother, Peter 
Tilton, and v.'ife Rebecca, were the only Tiltons whose names appear in the Quaker 
Records up to 1692. 

1694, September. He was one of the Grand Jurors independent enough to indict one 
of the Judges then sitting on the bench, and to present another. 

1700, October. He was committed to the custody of the Sheriff for "subscribing a 
seditious paper." 

1700, 9mo., (Nov.), 23. Will of John Tilton, of Middletov/n; proved Apr. 17, 1704. 
In it he makes no mention of his son Abraham Tilton, probably because he was dead at 
the time of its being made. Neither docs the testator refer in it to his youngest daught- 
ers, Mary and Hester. But he does distinctly declare that he had a son Peter Tilton, 
v/ho is not of age, and yet this Peter's name is not given with those ot the other children 
in the Shrewsbury Quaker Recoixls, nor in the hViends Records of New York and 
Mcinity, which gives his childreri and their birth date., as 1 append them.

1678. Thomas Tilton was witness to a deed in Gravesend, L. I. 

In direct descent from this Thomas Tilton, 7, who removed to Delaware, was James 
Tilton, a reputed son, but undoubtedly he was a grandson instead, as records on file at 
Washington, in the Pension Department, state that he was about sixty-nine or seventy 
years of age, in 18 13, and died May 14, 1822. This would make him to have been born 
about 1743 or 1744, and his alleged lather, Thomas, would have been about ninety-nve 
years of age at his birth, which demonstrates tliat he was a grandson rather than a son 
of the said Thomas. 

It is further shown by the records of the War Department, at Washington, that 
James Tillon, surgeon. Colonel John Haslctt's Delaware Regiment, Revolutionary War, 
was commissioned, Jan. 13, 1776, and was honorably discharged at the expiration o! one 
year; that he was appointed physician and surgeon-general. United States Arriiy, June

both on the same date. Evident, for the reason that, in the minutes of the Monthly 
Meeting, the committee appointed to attend their marriage, reported to the Meeting 
that the marriage had not taken place up to the time of their report, Jan. 6, J 745; asked 
to be continued; and then reported, Feb. 3, 1745, that it had been done ir. an orderly

The late Henry M. Walter, of Washington, D. C, 424 Eleventh St., N.W., endeav- 
ored, but in vain, to connect the family of Tiltons into which he married with the New 
Jersey line. 

From the records of the Pension Department he learned that Peter Tiltnn, the earliest of the line to 
whom he could trace, "served as a memlier of Captain Samuel Clark's company of New Yorlc State 
Troops, in the Revolutionary War, this company having been 'selected from the militia of Ulster County 
for the defense of the State ot New York, by order ot the convention of the said State dated July 16, 1776.' 
His name appears on the muster roll of the company, not dated, with record as follov/s: 'Day of enlistinent, 

July 31, Day which marched, Aug. 4, Time of enlistment, till last day of Dec. When 

mustered, Aug. 4, 1776. Age, 36 years, born in Jersey, a carpenter. Height, 5 ft. 10 in. Fair com- 
plexion, brown hair blue eyes.' 

"It also appears from the records that one Peter Tdton served as a private in Captain Philip D. 
Bevier's company, 5th Nev.' York Regiment, commanded by Colonel Lewis Duhoys, Revolutionary War. 
He enlisted March 1, 1777, to serve three years, and was discharged Januarv 20, 1780. It further appears 
from the records that one Peter Tilton served as a private in Captain Jonathan Piercy's company of 
Colonel Albert Pawling's regiment, Nev/ York Militia, Revolutionary War. His name appears on a list 
of certificates issued by the Treasurer of the State of New York, with remark sho\vlng that the soldier 
received a certificate for services in 178 1 in the regiment mentioned."

War, and that when the Battle of Monmouth Court House was fought, June 28, 1 778, 
Mrs. Tilton was still confined to her bed after the birth ot her son, John, eight days 
before, and that all during the battle, hearing the guns and cannon, she was terribly 
anxious lest her husband should be brought in killed or wounded.

^ CAPTAIN CLAYTON TILTON, the Tory, of Shrewsbury, together with Aaron 
White, was one of the prisoners exchanged for Daniel Randolph and Jacob Flemming, 
who had been captured with Captain Joshua Huddy, at Toms River. It is supposed 
that he accompanied the British when they evacuated New York City. And Mch. jo, 
1794, twenty-four hundred and forty-two acres of land were granted at Musquash, 
New Brunswick, to John Mount, Ebenezer Scott and Clayton Tilton. In 1906, I am 
informed, there stood upon the Tilton grant the Musquash School House, the Church 
of England Rectory, the Shore Line Station House, and several residences. 

^'oiume 2 of the Second Series of the New Jersey Archives relates that the properties 
of Ezekiel Tilton, and John Tilton, late of Middleto wn, and of Clayton Tilton, late of 
Shrewsbury, were confiscated after the Revolution. 

1774, Mch. 25. A mortgage is on record at Freehold, given by Thomas and Francis 
Chadwick and their wives Elizabeth and Huldah, w hich shows that the land mortgaged 
was bounded on the east and south by Samuel Pintard and Clayton Tilton, on the west 
by a highway, and on the north by the North or Navesink River. 

Clayton Tilton had a brother John Tilton, who was also a Tory, and by soirie it 
has been supposed that they were brothers to the Deborah Tilton, born May 7, 1751; 
died June i, 1S50, who married William White, of St. John, New Brunswick. Bat 
there would seem to be little more than conjecture to this. 

Clayton Tilton married, first, Catharine, daughter of Samuel and Almy (Borden) 
Scott; and, after her death, he married, July 30, 1805, Elizabeth, the widov/ of Thomas 
Green, of Musquash; died, Nov. 30, 1827, aged 64 years. 

"There was at Fort Howe (St. John, N. B.) in Garrison in 180S, a regiment which had been recruited 
largely out of the British prisons in the exigencies of the French War. It was the loist of the line, and 
was frequently referred to as the 'Hundred and Worst.' The officers were capable men but the rank and 
file were a hard lot. There were frequent floggings, and the Colonel said of his men that they were 'bad 
everything, except bad soldiers.' On the Battle field they were all right. 

Now for the tragedy. Henry Baldwin, James Lannon and Patrick Mclivoy, privates in the loist 
regiment at Fort Howe, deserted Oct. 17, 180S. A party sent to Musquash in pursuit of them failed to 
find them. On the 23rd of Oct., the deserters called at the house of Ebenezer Scott, at ?vlusquash, to 
inquire the way to Dipper Harbor. Clayton Tilton, living about two hundred yards from Scott's, con- 
cluded it his duty to arrest the deserters, and with two nien^ his own servant, Frederick Storm, and 
Burdett, his neighbor Scott's irian, attempted to stop the deserters. In the attempt Clapton Tilton was 
shot and killed by Henry Baldwin with nis musket. The deserters then took to the woods and made 
their escape, but were captured some days afterwards on an island in Passamaquoddy Bay, on their way 
to the United States, by a party of the Charlotte County militia, and carried before a magistrate of thit 
County, by whose order they were sent to St. John for trial. The prisoners were found guilty and sen- 
tenced to be executed. Patrick McEvoy was recommended by the iury for mercy, he being a youth 
between 18 and 15 years of age, and having taken no active part in the murder of Tilton; and his comrades 
having testified that he had been persuaded by them to desert. 

Baldwin and Lannon were hanged near the Block House Hill, corner of Kinc; and Wentworth Streets, 
on the 23rd November, just one month from the day the crime was committed. Justice was sv/ift in 
those days. At the execution, the rope broke with each of the prisoners, and the unfortunate men had 
to remain standing under the gallows till the messenger went to the South Wiiarf (half a niile away) and 
returned with a new rope. Some few years since some street laborers, d't;[;ing about the place, turned v.p 
some bones anrl fragments of red clotn tc whic'i military buttons were attached, evidently the remains 
of these two unforcunatc fellows who were buried under the gai'o'.vs."

\an Mater, in her will ot 1813. It would seem as though they were of Middletown. 
And probably it was he whose name appears in the New York City Directories for 1834 
to 1839, as Cyreno Tilton, mariner, and Tyreno Tilton, mate. 

In the burying ground of the Methodist Church, at Little Silver, N. J., are stones 
to the memory oi Elizabeth Bennett, daughter of Samuel and ALartha A. Bennett, and 
wife of Edward Tilton, and to their tuo infant children, Lla and Sanmiie Tilton. Eliza- 
beth (Bennett) Tilton was born Jan. 25, 1845, and died June 9, 1871. 

On record at Trenton, N. J., is the will oi a Peter Tilton, supposed by some to have 
been 83, of Middlesex Co., N. J., dated the "twetieseventh day of September in 1794," 
which was proved before Anthony W. White, Surrogate of ^^!ddlesex Co., May 25, 
1 801, and letters issued to Robert Tilton and Robert Karson. In it he mentioned: 

Peter Tilton Smith, to whom he left a "walking cain with I\-cry head." All the rest of his estate to 
his five children viz.: Elizabeth, Robert, Rebeckah, William and Lidia. Executors: son, Robert, and

WILLFAM TILTON, of Lynn, had at least two wives. By the first he had issue 

a son, Peter Tilton. He married again, one Susannah , v/ho, upon his demise, 

married Roger Shaw, and moved with him to Hampton. This is \\'ell proven by the 
following assertion; that "Roger Shaw and last wife Susannah that Roger Shaw should 
give the children she had by her first husband, as follows, to Samuel Tilton, her eldest 
son, £30 at age. Samuel Tilton acknowledges receipt from Joseph Shaw, executor of 
Roger Shaw, June 12, 1661." Also Roger Shaw agreed to pay Daniel Tilto'i, son of 
William Tilton, of Lynn, deceased, £10. And Samuel Tilton, guardian ot Daniel, 
acknowledges the receipt of same from Joseph Shaw, executor, A^pr. 13, 1663. 

William Tilton was an old resident of Lynn, about 1640, and was then, apparenth', 
somewhat advanced in years, for, in 1646, the E'^sex Court records state that William 
Tilton v/as freed from training but was to keep his arms fixed. And, again, in 1649, 
William Tilton was freed from training on account of his age. From this data I am 
inclined to deduce the birth of William as having occurred about 1580, and ol his son 
Peter, approximately about 1605-10. Presuming these dates to be correct, the migra- 
tion of father and son probably took place not far from 1635. 

During his residence at Lynn, William Tilton was an appraiser of the estate of 
Abraham Belknap, in 1643; appraiser of the estate of Francis Lightfoot, in 1646, and 
administrator of the estate of Edward Lewis, in 1650. 

"In 1861," writes Mr. William P. Tilton, of Isoston, "my uncle had careful examina- 
tion made of the records in England, and again in 1873, m\ great-uncle. General William 
S. Tilton, had an advertisement placed in the London Times, offering a reward of £5, 
for proof of the births and baptisms of William, Peter and John Tilton." No success 
followed these efTorts. But data was obtained, shedding light upon the early English 
family bearing the name of Tilton. These extended references are in the possession of 
mcmbei's of the New EngLuid farnil)-. Two itenis alone, of v, Irat I have seen, suggest 



220 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

any means of connecting the American with the Englisli family, viz.: (a) "In 1639," 
writes William P. Tilron, "Rev. Ephraim Huet, the minister of a chin-ch in Wroxhall, 
Warwickshire, with several members of his church, among them Peter Tylton, settled 
in Dorchester, Mass., being prosecuted for non-conformity, by the P)ishop of Worcester. 
Warwickshire is an adjoining county to Leicestershire, and Leicestershire is the oi-iginal 
home of the Tiltons." 

(b) "A quo warranto was issued by Charles II, in 1683, against the Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts, in which he is styled Petru Tylton, Armiger." Fol. /''., 
Mass. Col. Records, and JJliitmcres Heraldic Journal, p. 23. These serve to connect 
him with the family in Leicestershire. 

1 WILLLAM TILTON died in 1653. His will is missing from the probate files

2 PETER TILTON, son of William Tilton, i, probably settled at Windsor, Conn., 

between 1635 and 1640; he married there. May 10, 1639, Mary ; and if this was a 

first marriage, it was somewhat belated tor his years. In 1659, he was ot Hadley, Mass. 

Peter Tilton was a man of great prominence in New^ England; he was a Representa- 
tive to the General Court for many years, and an Assistant, for sev^en years. He was 
largely concerned with Mr. Rogers and Mr. Saltonstall, in concealing Gofr'e and Whalley, 
the Regicides, and was cited to appear before the British Parliament for befriending 
them, and it is supposed that one ot them was buried in his garden. See Stiles' History

WALL 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY 



1 WALTER WALL was born in 1619, and came to America from Wiltshire, Eng- 
land, between the years i63';-i640. 

He, seemingly, was the Walter Wall, aged sixteen, transported to St. Christopher's, 
in 1635. Uotteri's List of Emigrants, p. 126. 

He was a resident of New Amsterdam for an uncertain period, and then joined in 
the settlement of Gravesend, L. L On the Town Record appear a number of allusions 
to him: 

1645, Aug. 10. Lie received a plantation. 

1654, Sept. 22. Lie purchased lot No. 14. 

1657. He had seven and one-half morgens of land in tillage in Gravesend. 

1658. Nov. 9. He purchased lot No. i. 

1659. Walter Wall named at Hempstead, L. L, Onderdonck' s Hempstead, p. 104, 
was doubtless the same individual. 

Ann Wall, alluded to below, I have not identified, but suspect she was the wife of 
Walter Wall, as he had one of that name. 

Sir Henry Moodv vs Anthon'y Johxson' Van Salee 

The complainant alleges that Johnson ^'an Salee came to his house and used abusive language. 
Aimctje I'/all testified that she was scouring pewter there and Johnson Van Salee asked her what she did 
there and commanded her to take it away, calling Sir Henry Moody, at the same time, a dog, a rogue and 
a "skellumme," (i. e. a scallywag — Dutch word;, and abused her with evil language. Lhe court fined 
the defendant 10 guilders, and enjoined him to behave better or tare worse. Girivesend Court Records. 
Quoted in the pamphlet on "Lady Deborah Moody," by Mr. (lirard. 

1665. He v/as one of the Associate Patentees of the Moninouth Patent, and as 
such, paid £4. 

1666 or 1667. He moved to Middletovvn, N. J., and located upon a farm about two 
miles to the west of the center of the village, the title to which, in the early part of looo, 
was vested in John Stout and Daniel I). Hendrlckson. 

1667, ^^<-'C- 30. Walter Wall, of Mididlctown, N. J., was awarded lot No. 4; also lot 
No. 32, outside, in the Poplarheld. 



224 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

1670. Walter Wall was stated to have paid for shares of land in Middletown, N. L 

1676, Jan. 10. He paid quit-rent of £0-10-2, on two hundred anci forty-four acres, 
in Middletown, N. J. 

1677. He paid on two hundred and forty acres in Shrewsbury, X. j. 
1679. t^t- also paid quit-rents. 

1686. He also paid quit-rents, but the quantity is not mentioned. 

1688, ALav 10. Ide paid quit-rent of £0-6-0, on one hundred acres, in Middletown, 

N- J- 

1702. Fie died somewhere about this date, or earlier, as his cattle-mark, was then 
transferred to another, which he originally recorded, in 1668, in the To::>i Book, oj MicJ- 
dlctomi, N. y., as follows: "a half moone cutt out of the under side off both eares." 

1702, Sept. 26. This earmark was recorded to James Cox; 1712, July 21, to Walter 
Wall, and in 1791, to Cornelius Hendrickson. 

Walter Wall signed by his mark. 

He married Ann

Captain John Slocum as her guardian. 
6b Probably a daughter who married Thomas Cox, 2. 

William Leed's letter to Cox, written I think between 1716 and 1736, says, referring 
to his rights in a dispute about the title of lands he held; "a little time after we came to 
Swiming River, Tho" Wright and his wife died, and my father planted the land then as 
Wright had cleared and Jarrat Wail was in a pucker. He would arrest my father for a 
trespass, ay that he would, but Samuel Leonard met with him and showed him it was 
out of Stout's power to make a lawful title for any land at Swiming River, the 22 of 

June, 1676, and so Jarrat had done and v«-e heard no more for several years, but at 

last it came into his head that he v/ould get the articles of agreement or writing acknowl- 
edged and recorded and so let it lye " 

3 MARLA or ALARY WALL, daughter of Walter Wall, i, is the person probably 
alluded to below. 

1663, June 12. "The corte having heard the difference between Walter Wall and Nathrinye!! Britton

Gravesen^, L. I., Court Records. 

It is likely that Walter Wall had become a wiLlowcr, and had bound out his daughter, 
Mary, a mere child, for her better bringing up, to Nathaniel Britton. 

4 JOHN ^^'ALL, son of Walter Wall, i, was, probably, born between 1640 and 
1650. 

1670. John Wall appeared in Aliddletown, N. J. 

As an Associate Patentee, in the purchase of the Monmouth Tract, he paid £3-10. 

By exclusion, I believe him to be a son of Walter Wall, i. 

5 JARRAT WALL, son of Walter Wall, i, was probably born between 1640 and 
1650, and resided in Middletown, N. J. 

1676, May 22. Gerard or Jarret Wall was a witness to a deed irom the Indian chiefs 
to Richard Hartshorne. Book C, Deeds, p. 11, Freehold, N. J. Court Records. 

It is possible the first Jarret or Garret Wall may have had the English name, 
Gerard, transformed by the early settlers into the Dutch — Garret. 

1680, Apr. 21. Lie paid a quit-rent on one hundred acres of land, in Middletov/n, 

1682, Apr. 12. Garret Wall paid a quit-rent on one hundred and seventy acres of 
land, at Shoal Harbor Creek, Middletown, N. J. 

1684, Nov. 28. Garret Wall recorded his earmark. 

1685, June 5. He paid quit-rent on one hundred and seventy acres ot land, on 
Manasquan River, Shrev/sbury, N. J., which amounted to £0-7-1. 

Lie was quite prominent in Monmouth County: Petty Juryman in 1693; Receiver 
Taxes, January, 1697, and Foreman ot the Grand Jury in 1699. 

1696. He recorded his brand-mark. 

170x3-1701. He was am.ong those who resisted the encroachments of the Pro- 
prietors; was arrested, but liberated by the people, tVom the Sheritt's custody, and, in 
1700, he aided in the rescue of prisoners, arrested lor like offences. 

1709. Jarrat and Lydia Wall, [by her mark], deedea land to Daniel Hendrickson. 
Witness: Walter Wall. 

17 15, May 5. His cattle and brand marks were conveyed to his son, John. 

Lidia, wife of Jarrat Wall, died Apr. 12, 1732. Baptist Church Record, Middle- 
town, N. J. She was a member of this church in 171 2. 

1711, Mch. 10. Jarrat Wall made his will, which v.-as proved Nov. 10, 1711-12, 
and which m.cntioned his wife, Poolen, alias Lydia \^'all, whom he made executrix, with 
John and Walter Wall, executors, and mentioned his children. 

The wife of Jarrat Wall, 5, was probably Pauline, daughter of Clement and Peula 
or Poulin Masters, of Shrewsbury, N. J. 

1675, Nov. 2. Clement and Poulin Masters liad one hundred and twenty acres of 
land and meadow at Shrewsbury, N. J. 

1689. Thomas Wainwright, John West and Clement Masters were presented by 
the Grand Jury, at Shrewsbury, for ''playing at nync pins on ye ffirst day." 



226 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

"Mary Pew's mother was a French lady named Peula Masters," said Asher Taylor, 
Esq., but this I consider an error, and the allusion is probably to Mary Pew's mother- 
in-law. 

1713, Oct. 21. John Masters, son and heir-at-law of Francis Masters, late of 
Shrewsbury, made a conv^eyance to I'rancis Masters, son of Clement Masters, of Shrews-

Verdict by the jury for the plaintif; damages £8. The Go\'ernor and Proprieiors al- 
lowed an appeal to be taken by Johnston to the Court, at Amboy. 

7 JOHN WALL, son of Jarrat \Vall, 5, was born circ. 1680-1685, and probably 
died in the vicinity o( 1752, when his son, John, claimed his cattle-mark. 

1711. May 8. John Wall, Blacksmith, sold land to Daniel Hendrickson, yeoiman. 

1712. He was a member of the Baptist Church, Middletown, N. J.

Despite the assertion that this Mar_\' Wall married Col. Ludlow, the follov/ing de-

Oct. 31, 1751. John Wilier had a license issued to marry Mary Wall' they had a 
daughter, named Lydia, born Mch. 28, 1752, who married Samuel, son of Samuel and 
Mary (Passel) Tilton, and named one of their sons, Humphrey Tilto!i. Undoubtedly 
Humphrey was indebted for his name to the Wall family, as his mother Lydia if she were

an uncle Llumphrey Wall.

Richard Burdge. 

"the age and death ot our sister burdge. She was born y*" 3 day of September 
1725, and departed this Life the 2 day of Feb. 1752." 

The dates do not agree exactly with those given on page 302, "\'ol. 2 of Historical 
Miscellany, but there can be no doubt whatsoever that we have, in the two entries, 
reference made to the oiie individual, viz.: Susannah Wall, the wife of Richard Burdge, 
and the curious thing about it is, that while there is a ditFerence of two years between 
the epitaph and the Church record, for the date of her death, there is none at all as 
regards the date of her birth; hence the Church record should probably read 17 s4 
instead ot 1752, and this is the more likely as the entries ot various years in this record 
are oft times not clearly separated one from the other. 

In this connection it will perhaps be well to note another error, relating to Hannah 
the daughter of the preceding Susannah (Wall) Burdge. 

She is stated to have been born Feb. 15, 1744, and died Aug. 26, 1807, when she 
would have been 6^, 6, 11, instead of 63, 7, 11.

WALL OF MONMOUll^ COUNTY, N. J. 233 

Capt. William Conover died, Oct. 27, 11829, aged 76 years, 3 months and 25 days. 
He was a Captain, in the Revolution, and grandson of Jacob Conover, who came from 
Long Island, in 1699. ALiry Wall, his ^^•ite, died, Nov. 21, 1S34, aged 67 years. Dutch

Walter and James Wall, reputed sons ot Humpihrey ^Vall, came from New Jersev, 
and settled on a neck of land, called "The Forks," lying between the Monongahela and 
the Youghiogheny Rivers, about sixteen miles South of Pittsburgh, in Alleghany County, 
Pa. For years this locality was known as The Jersey Settlement, by reason of its num- 
erous settlers from New Jersey, especially trom Monmouth County. \n 1769, after 
having cleared land and built houses, they brought their families. The records of these 
Walls were destroyed, by accident, many years ago, and I am strongly inclined to believe 
that instead ot Walter and James Wall being the sons ot Humphrey \Vall, they were 
the children of James Wall, as appears from the following will: 

1750-51, I\Ich. 13; will proved Apr. 4, 1760, to which he made his mark. James 
Wall, sick, of Middlesex County, mentioned: 

wife; four daughters: Martha, Re'oeccs, Abigail and Neomia, each, Cio; two sons, ^^ alter and 
James, the residue of his estate. .All of the children were minors. 
Executors: Friends, John and Joseph Story. 

Walter Wall niarried Alice, a sister to Benjamin Applegate.

WALLING 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY 



Upon the authority of Austin's Rhode Island Dictionary there was residing, as 
early as Jan. 22, 1651, in Providence, R. I., a Thomas Walling, at which date Roger 
Williams, of Narragansett, writing to the town of Providence, probably alluding to him 
said "I understand that one of the orphans of our dear friend Daniel Abbot is likely (as 
she herself told me) to be disposed of in marriage. 'Tis true she has now come to some 
years, but who knows not what need the poor maid hath of your fatherly care, counsel 
and direction. I would not disparage the young man (for 1 hear he hath been labori- 
ous)," etc. He desired the town, however, to have some assurance that the young man 
will "forsake his former courses." Thomas Walling married, first, Mary Abbott, who 
died 1669; second Margaret White who first married Robert Colwell, by whom, in 1667, 
she was divorced and thereupon married June 19, 1669, Thomas Walling and following 
his death (Margaret White) married, third, Dec. 25, 1678, Daniel Abbott and died in

WATSON 
OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY 



There v/ere, apparently, two distinct families of this name, among the early settlers 
of Monmouth County, N. J. James Steen, Esq., a painstaking investigator, thinks 
differently, however, and inclines to the belief that Peter Watson's cousin, John, to 
whom he wrote, in August, 16S4, urging his removal to East Jersey, is represented by 
Capt. Abraham Watson, of Middletown, who died 1756, which would make the two 
families of kin. I have never seen anything to sustain this belief. 

John Watson, the early settler in Monmouth County, had a previous residence in 
New York City, where he had his children baptised in the Dutch Church: 

16S5, June 3. Jan Watson and wife, Sara, had Lysbeth baptized. Witnesses: 
Vincent Smith and Jannetie Jans. 

1688, Jan. 4. John Watson and wife, Sara Hidding, had Abraham baptized. Wit- 
nesses: Willem Estin and Grietje Kermer. 

Some time after this, he settled on the Bay Shore, in Monmouth County, where he 
died in 1708. 

"Changarores the ii"" June, 1708. 

Then appeared before me, Edward, Vi/count Cornbury, Captain General and 
Governor-in-Chief in & over the Province of New Jersey, New York, &c., Captain John 
Bowne, principal Creditor of John Watson, of Changarores, lately dec'' &: praying for 
administration," etc. 

Tre7}ton Records. 

In Hotteyis List oj EiiiigrayUs is mentioned "Abram Watson, 1635, at Gravesend, 
aet. 19," which I cite because ot the name, but do not attempt to connect with the New 
Jersey Watsons. 

John Watson had, seemingly two wives; the first, Sara Hidding [Hedden?]; the 
second, Elizabeth Bockworth, a widow.

4 John Watson; supposed. 

2 ELIZABETH WATSON, daughter of John Watson, i. 

In 1724, EHzabeth and John Watson were witnesses to the will of John Stout, of 
Middletown. Whether this Elizabeth Watson was the sister or wife of this John \\'at- 
son, I am uninformed, but incline to the belief that she was his sister, and a daughter 
of John Watson, i. 

3 ABRAHAM WATSON, son of John Watson, i, was baptised, Jan. 4, 1688, in 
the Dutch Church, in New York City. 

His tombstone, in the defunct Presbyterian Chmxhyard, in Middletown, N. ].. 
states that Catt. Abraham Watsox died, in 1756, at the age ot sixty-seven years. Tlic 
discrepancies in dates, so commonly occurring in tombstone and bible records, are seen 
here. They were not infrequently simply an approximation. Again the computation 
may have been with the birth date in old style and the death date in new style. 

Capt. Abraham Watson is reputed to have had two wives, Mary and Eliza- 
beth , who was probably the Elizabeth Watson, whose marriage license, to Thomas 

Walling, of Middletown, was issued May 9, 1759. Thomas Walling also had been mar- 
ried, widowed, and was along in years like his future spouse. 

Abraham Watson was a sea captain of many years experience. He sailed t.he 
sloops, "John &: Samuel," "Elappy Margaret" and "^Iary," from Perth Amboy, to and 
from Boston, Newport, and other ports, in the years 1723, 1724, 1725, 1726, 1729, 1730, 
1733> snd 1734. In the last two years, he was accompanied by his son, John, whom he 
was doubtless training for a siinilar vocation. 

171 1, January. Abram Watson recorded his cattle-mark, formerly Richard Corn- 
ton's, in the Middletown Town Book. 

1712, Feb. 20. Derick Tyson, of Middletown, yeoman, and Antje, his wife, sold

1717, May 20. Humphrey Wall, of Middletown, sold to Abraham Vv'atson, planter, 
land, which "s"^ Wall had from his father, Jarret," lying on Conascunk Creek. 

1717, Aug. 21. Abraham Watson, of Middletown, yeoman, and Elizabeth, his wife, 
conveyed land to Thomas Kearney. She made her mark. Witnesses: Gershom Mott, 
John ^lott, John Wall and Humphrey Wall. 

Abraham Watson and Elizabeth Wright had an illegitimate child.

WAl^SON OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 249 

In 1721, John Watson, evidently a sea captain, bore a letter from Thomas Paul, of 
Edinburgh, Scotland, to James Paul, his brother, residing in Middletown, N. J., and, 
in 17-4, John Soul [Stout?), of Middletown, made his will to which John Watson and 
Elizabeth \Vatson affixed their signatures as witnesses. 

1730, Oct. 10. John ^^'ats()n, William J^owne and James liowne, Jr., were witnesses 
to the will of James Paul, miller, of Middletown, N. J., on this date. James Paul left 
all of his p.'-operty to the four youngest children of Obadiah Bowne. The executors of 
the will were Jeremiah White and John, son of Obadiah Bowne. 

This John Watson I conceive is the supposed son, John Watson, above mentioned. 

He was, probably, the John Watson, ship-master, sailing his vessel trom Perth 
Amboy, N. J. 

5 JOHN WATSON, son of Abraham Watson, 3, died prior to 1749, for, in that 
year, his widow, Hope, became the wife ot John Burrows, of Middletown. She was 
born, Hope Taylor, in the year 1721 and died 1792, and was buried, in the yard of the 
defunct Presbyterian Church, Middletown, N. J., next to her second husband, John 
Burrows, and adjacent to her father-in-law, Capt. Abraham Watson. 

Tradition has it that Capt. John Watson, her husband, was drowned at sea, and I 
judge it v>'as between 1747 and 1748. 

The following record is from an old Bible, owned by Mr. Asher Holmes, of Wicka- 
tunk, N. J. Where the elipsis appears, the original record has become much worn 
and illegible.

Middletown; married John Stillwell, ol Garrat's Hill. 

9 Abraham Watson born 1747; died 1767. 

9 ABRAM WxATSON, son of John Watson, 5, was born in 1747 and died in 1767. 

1756, Dec. 9. Abram Watson recorded the cattle-mark ot his grandfather, Abram 
Watson, in the Middletown Town Book. At tliis date, he was but nine years of age 
and it was probably, entered by the order ot his guardian. Later, this mark was con- 
veyed to John Burrows. 

1787. Samuel Dorset took oath that Sarah and Elizabeth were the granddaughters 
and only heirs of Capt. Abram Watson. 

The following memorandum probably refers to Abram Watson. 

Hope Burrows lost her only grown son. A letter, of great beauty of expression and 
pathos, written by her, was found, some years since, among the effects of Cyrus Bruen, 
whose daughter, Mrs. Charles H. Conover, of ^LarlbGro, N. J., had it for some time. 
She loaned it to the late Judge Bennington H. Randolph, of Jersey City, who dying, 
it was lost, or mislaid, among his numerous papers. The substance and text ot it, as 
recalled by Mrs. Conover, is: 

Tod.iy I have written thus that if in the future any of my children or grand children sh?'l see this 

f)aper tticy will know the sufferings of my heart. This is the anniversary of the death of my son John 
Abralismr], who died at the house of his master, in New York," etc., etc. 

It is my impression that the son alluded to, was Abram Watson, her sor. by her iirst 
husband. The statement that he was at the house ot his master, in New York, may have 
referred to a marine master, i. e. shipmaster or owner. 

The oilier Watson Family, in Monmouth County, descended trom:

1683, as an indentured servant, to serve four years. Neiv Jersey Archives, Vol. I , p. 46^.

1725/6. Peter Watson made his will, which was probated in 1727, and wherein 
he called hiniselt ot Middletown, and mentioned: 

wife, Agnes, (who was probably his second wife); sons, William, the eldest, Richard, Gawin, ]I>aviu, 
Peter; deceased. 

Agnes Watson, widow of Peter Watson, dying in 1728, left all of her property 
away from the Watson family and among her friends anci relatives, hence it does not 
seem as if she were the mother of Peter Watson's children. It seems as if his first wife's 
name might have been Euphemia, as his four sons each had a daughter by that name. 
James Steen, Esq., ot Eatontown, N. J., states, positively, that Peter Watson married 
the daughter of Alexander Napier, who, in his will dated Feb. 7, 1744, speaks of grand- 
children: — David, Margaret, Agnes and Elizabeth Watson, but as these naines do :iot 
correspond with the names of the children mentioned in Peter Watson's will, and as the 
dates of the v/ills are so far apart, I am inclined to think that it was Peter Watson's 
son, David, who married Napier.

WHITE* 

OF 

NEW JERSEY 



It was previously assumed that Thomas White, the immigrant, was the father of 
Samuel White and of Peter White, and grandfather of Thomas White and of Samuel 
^^'hite, who married Pilizabeth Wardell, and of Amos White, the first mentioned Samuel 
White being the father of these three sons. This was deemed to be the relationship 
between the different individuals mentioned, because real estate that had been acquired 
by the elder Samuel, as oldest son of Thomas, the immigrant, is found in the possession 
of the second Thomas, and presumably it could only have gotten there by the law of 
primogeniture. In reality the law referred to was strictly carried out, but, through the 
death of the son Joel White born to Samuel ^Vhite, the property next went to Tiiornas 
White as brother and not son of Samuel White. 

There is no proof whatever that there were two Samuels, the one of the second 
generation having been the father of that Samuel who married Elizabeth Wardell. In 
fact, the evidence at hand, and particularly the expression made use of in the will of 
Peter White, appointing "cousins Samuel White and Thom.as White as supervisors and 
assistants to their Aunt," requires that we regard Thomas White, the imniigrant and 
Peter White us brothers. 

W'ho the parents of these men were we do not know.

27 LEAH WHITE, daughter of Thomas White, 6, born 1688, according to a 
pamphlet giving the Tucker genealogy. This is probably based upion a mistaken read- 
ing of the Quaker records of Slirev.sbury, that says she died, 2mo. (Feb.) 18, 1767, aged 
78 years, which properly deciphered is 73 not 78 }-ears. This would have made her 
birth to ha\-e occurred about 1694. She married, first, about 1713, (Samuel?), son uf

Thomas White and James Tucker were among the first settlers along the seashore, 
of the place that is now called Deal, N. J., and it is said that it got its name from the 
fact that the Whites came from Deal, Kent Co., England; likewise from the Tuckers 
having come from the same place. At any rate the Tuckers seem to have had an estate 
here in New Jersey three times as large as that of the Whites, the one having perhaps 
twenty-five hundred acres to the others eight hundred. And, further, the name was 
applied to the place at an earlier date than would appear to correspond with the coming 
of the Tuckers from New England to New Jersey, tltere being a deed on record at Tren- 
ton, dated May 12, 1683, in which "Thomas Potter, of Deale, near Shrowesbury, N.J., 
planter," conveys land in Fenwick's Colony to an inhabitant of Rhode Island.

31 LEM WHITE, son of Thomas White, 6, died 1784; married, (Mch. 13?), 
1733, Ann, probably the daughter of Robert Lippincott. First, as regards the date of 
her marriage, and then about her parentage. The records ot the Quakers, at Shrews- 
bury, state that Levi \Miite and Ann Lippincott were married, imo., 13, 1733, which, 
according to the chronology of that time, would be March and not January. But the 
minutes of the Mens' Monthly Meeting distinctly declare that their first intentions 
were published, 9mo. (Nov.), 5, 1733; their second intentions, lomo. (Dec.) 3, 1733, 
and that the committee reported, iimo. (Jan.), 7, 1733, that they had been married in 
an orderly manner. Hence it is evident that their marriage occurred at an earlier date 
than the records give them credit for, although in the latter part of the year 1733. 

These same records also show the following entry: "Thomas & Christian White's 
son, George White, married Ann, daughter ot John Li})pincott, whose son Benjamin 
White, born 12 ["4," in lead pencil] of i2mo., 1755;" etc., etc. 

This Benjanup. White v.rote a memorial ot his life, in which he states tiiat he was 
"born on the 4th day of the 12th m.onth.s 1755. My father George White son of Thomas 



266 HISTORICAL MISCEI l.AN^' 

and Christian White, my iMother Annn, daughter of Jolin LijTpincott she dying when I 
was young, I have but a slight remembrance ot lier." 

Plainly the correction in the records for the birth of Hcnjamin was made from the 
manuscript. But the contusion arising from the making of the same womaii to have been 
the w ife ol two diflcrent men must be accounted for on other grounds. It has been stated 
in the genealogy of the Lippincotts that Levi \\'hite married Anne the daughter of John 
and Sarah (Lluet) I.ippineott; and it has been declared by more than one genealogist 
that it was George ^\]^ite, son of Thomas and Christian, who married this same Anne 
Lippincott. 

To my mind there is no doubt that George, and not Levi, White married Ann, the 
daughter ot John and Sarah (Huet) Lippincott, because her own grandson, Benjamin 
White, 98, says she was John's daughter; because George and Ann White name tlieir 
oldest children, John and Sarah, after the maternal grandparents; and because she would 
have been only fourteen years of age at the time of her marriage to Levi, if we accept 
the date as given in the Quaker Records, ha\ing, as they, show, been born iimo., 5, 
1719/20.* Furthermore, the signatures of John, Thomas and Jacob Lippincott, as wit- 
nesses, when Levi and Ann were married, can be readily accounted for as those of her 
uncle and his two sons, it we suppose her to have been the daughter of Robert Lippincott, 
mentioned but not named in the will of her grandfather, John Lippincott, whose w^ife was 
Ann (Barber), after whom epch ot these granddaughters received the name of Ann. This 
John Lippincott, the grandfather, refers to her as "the daughter of my deceased son, 
Robert Lippincott."

sixty-eight acres where Joseph White dwelt. This hand is described as being bounded on

southwesterly by John White's lot, and westerly by Thomas White's land. 

1811, July I. John D. Goodrich, of New York, and Sarah, his wife, convey their one- 
sixth interest in the same land, describing it in the same way, except that Timotli.y Cor-

The following is an absolutely accurate copy of a paper in the possession of Mrs. 
John Livingston Conover, of Wickatunk, N. J., which was made I^Iarch 28th, 1908. 
The words with aesteriks had lines drawn through them in the original, those in italics

It is difficult, if not impossible, rightly to assign the dates of death as given in this 
document. It was not Joseph White who died in 1812, for his daughter Elizabeth ^'an 
Pelt is giving a deed for her share in his property in 1799. It was not the date of death 
of Lydia, the daughter of Joseph, for she died in 1S29. Nor am I at all confident that 
the date 1819 belongs with Jacob Fleming, it might just as well apply to Stephen from 
its position in the manuscript.

*.\ careful ana painstakin? comparison of the names signed as witnesses to the marriage ot Amos White an;l Ann White 
shows, quite ccmplctely, to my mind, at leaat, thnt Amos White was the son of iVter and Patience White, and Ann White was 
probably the daughter of Joseph, 78, and Sarah (Parker; White. In this way the signatures immediately following those ot the 
bride and groom would be accounted for as: 

Sarah White, the mother of the bride. 

Patience White, the mother of the groom. 

Lydia White, trie sister of the bride, who later or. married Joseph Fleming. 

Hannah Whire, the sister of the groom, eighteen years old.

I am unable to place this last mentioned John White, but it seems very probably 
that he was identical with the John White, "sawyer," mentioned in deeds below. 

1800, Apr. 10. Simeon Babcock and Jane, his wife, convey thirty-four and forty- 
two hundredths acres of land on Jumping Brook to John Lipj^incott, which was bounded 
on the south by lands of the said John White, and on the east by lands of Charity, the 
wife of James Tallman, Jr., and daughter of Jacob White, (67). 

1800, Aug. II. Richard Wikoff and Hannah., his wife, she having been one ol the 
daughters of Jacol.) W'hite, (67), late of Shrev/sbury, convey seventy-five acres of land, 
to John Whice, of Shrewsbury, boundeci east by James Tallman, south by Thomas 
White, (63), west on Jumping iiiook, and nortli by John Lippincott. Tliis rract was 



3CO HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

the one referred to in the previous deed given by Simeon Ralicock, ahliotigh of an carlic 
date, and was deeded by John White, "sawyer," and Mary, his wife, to Jonathan 
Younians, June 3, 1S13. 

John White, "sawyer," and Mary, liis wife, convey, at this same time, another 
tract of land to Jonathan Youmans, of five acres, wliich adjoined the first, to whicli he 
claimed title by deed of sale from Thomas White, dated Mch. 20, 1797, but which is not 
on record. The beginning point of this five acre tract was "in the Forge Pond, forty- 
four links north of the middle of the bridge that crosses the flood gates;" thence the line 
ran to "a small run or swamp that puts into Jumping Brook," and down the swamp to 
the brook. Two of the courses, together with their distances, coincide with what can be 
found in a deed for one hundred and eighty-six acres, from Thomas Stillweil aiidPhebe, 
his wife, to Abraham Van Dyke, he claiming title by virtue of a deed which, likewise, is 
unrecorded, from Thomas Wliite, (62). This tract is described as being in Shrewsbury, 
on the east side ot Jumping Brook, beginning "about seven chains below the saw mill of 
John White's and Daniel White's on Jumping Brook, at the mouth of a small run that 
empties in said brook, it being the corner of John White's lot that he purchased of 
Thomas White." It may be that Daniel \^'hite in the above description is a mistake 
for Amos White, for, once in the body of the deed there is certainly such a mistake made, 
and twice the name Amos is used properly. 

1804, Mch. 31. Peter Knott and L)-dia, his wife, convey fourteen and one-quarter 
acres of land, at Poplar Swamp, to John White and Jacob White; grantors claiming 
title by virtue of a deed from Anthony Woolley and Sarah, his wife, dated, April 1790. 

1812, May II. John T. White (112) and Mary, his wife, convey fifty-one acres of 
land to John White, "sawyer," which John White "sawyer," deeds to Thomas Rosell, 
Dec. 12, 1816. 

1 8 13, A]->r. 5. John White, "sawyer," and Mary, his wife, convey a part of the tract 
purchased o( Peter Knott, to Hendrick White.

tract of land to Elias Truax, who had previously come into possession of the part pur- 
chased by Hendrick \\'hite.

312 EDWARD WHITE, son of Thomas White, 224. The Lipnincott manuscript 
in the Histcical Society's Library, at Philadelphia, makes the assertion that Benjamin 
White, No. 117, had two sons named Edward and James. If such were the case, the;; 
do not join with the daughters of Benjamin in conveying property after the deaths or 
Benjamin and his wife, Axhigail. And without proof to the contrary, it would seem as 
if they had been contused with two ot the sons ot Thomas \Miite, No. 224, although some 
evidence can be procured to sustain the view that the Lippincott manuscript is correct. 
As, for instance, Mr. James Edward Borden, of Eatontown, N. J., the last remaining 
Quaker of the Shrewsbury Meeting, says that he can recollect an Edvvard White, v/no 
died unmarried, and was probably a nephew oi Jacob WJiite, No. 1 15. While Mr. Isaac 
C. Kennedy, a lawyer of Asbury Park, states distinctly that Edward \Miite was a son 
of Benjamin White, No. 117. Still another old resident ot that section ot the country, 
"who knew Edward White's father well," says the father's name was Benjam»in, and 
that he owned property at Deal. He likewise says that the James T. White, No. 311, 
who owned the property on which Joseph Truax was living in 1902, came fro.m Burling- 
ton Co., (as was actually the case), and returned there after his father's death; and that 
the family to which he belonged was a branch of the Deal family. 

1828, July 4. Edward White, of Hanover township, Burlington Co., deeds to 
James T. White, without giving any full description, "all my share in a lot of land in 
Shrev.sbury township, that belonged formerly to my father Thomas, deceased."

joining Jacob White, the Ocean, Jacob Corlies and Corlies Pond. 

1S36, Oct. 22. Edward \Miite conveys to William Wright, three acres ot woodland,

1 Liternal evidence, in the will of Robert White, seems to be sufficient to assure us 
that he was the father of the Robert White, 2, who went to Monmouth County. And 
from the occurrence of the name of Peter among his sons, it has been thought that he Vvas 
closely related to the Peter and Thomas \Miite, brothers, whose descendants are enumer- 
ated in the foregoing pages. 

All the knowledge I have been able to obtain of him is contained in the record of his 
will, as printed by the A'ifw York Historical Society^ Volume i, Page 283.

1684/5, Feb. 4. The inventory of the estate of Thomas White, of Monmouth Co., 
shows his estate as a debtor to Robert White as of this date, the debt having been paid 
sometime between 16S4 and 1686, by Samuel White, the son and administrator of 
Thomas. Possibly this was Robert White, i, but it would seem more likely to have 
been his son, as he is known to have taken a wife iii Mc/nmoulh. Couiity.

young maiden, of New "i'ork; and also that their child Elii;abcth, was baptised July 1, 1691. 

The New Jersey Historical Society have, in their Library, at Newark, as presented 
to them by Charles S. lioggs, ot the LhTited States Navy, the original license issued f(;r 
the marriage of this Robert White to his second wife, which differs in a remarkable wav 
from the record of the marriage itself. The license has the names: 

Robert White, "joyner," of New York, and Frances Stanley, of Province of East Jersey, have license 
dated Aug. 29, 1694. 

In Book "B" of the record of Deeds at Freehokl, N. J., is to be found the following: 

"These are to certifie all wliom it may concern, that on this the last day of August, Anno one thous- 
and six hundred ninety and four, Robert White, of the city of New York, and Frances Wales,* of the 
Province aforesaid, was lawfully Joyned in holy-^^'edlock, and this to be their sufficient Testimonial!. 
Given from under my hand at Tinton INIanors this day and date hereof. Signed L. Morris." 

1694, the last day of August 1694, at Trenton Manor, INLary \Miite married to John 
French. The date for this marriage is given as Oct. 21, 1694, in the Supplementary List 
of INLarriage Licenses, issued by the State Library Bulletin, in April, 1898. But the 
earlier date, occun-ing on the same day and at the same place as when Robert White 
was married, is found on the records at Freehold. 

1695, July 21. Elizabeth, daughter of "Robert White and Frankje Sr.fj^ferv," bap-

39 PHILIP WHITE, son of Peter White, 21. Killed in the War of the Revolu-

; second, Oct. 29, 1773, Jane Miers, born Dec. 14, 1755; she married, second, 

Mr. Irons, and third, Mr. ]3evan. 

Alfred Smith, a great-grandson ot Jane Miers, by her third marriage, had in his 
possession, in 1882, the certificate of her marriage to Philip White, which he had found 
among his father's papers. It reads as follows: 

"Jane Myer was born the fourteenth Day of December in the year 1775." 

"•This may Certifie all such as it may Concern that. Philip White & Jatie Miers have been Lafully 
loined in holy Matrimony by me October y* 2y 1773

Shrewslniry, about tlic time of this marriage, out the earl\- records of that Churdi 
have been destroyed or lost for many years. 

Mr. Smith had also in his possession a paj^er that gave the dates of birth of the two 
children of Philip White, as given beyond. 

1782, Apr. 20. Letters of administration on the estate of Philip White, of N\\', 
York, joiner, who died intestate, granted to his brother, William Wliite. 

vVf-::- ^'oj'k Historical Society, Wills, Vol. 9, page 324. 

According to Sabine's Plistory of the Loyalists, George Taylor Dennison, Jr., tried 
to make Philip White to have been a son ot Amos (Xo. 25) and Esther (Tilton-Border.j 
Wliite. But there is not a particle of evidence to show that this couple had any chiui 
by what was a second marriage on the part of each ot them. And other reasons showing 
Mr. Dennison's mistake hav^e been set forth by the Reverend William White Hance in 
an article he published in the Nci:: York Genealogical and Biographical Record, for July, 

1905- 

In hunting o\'er some old newspapers for the time, the folkn\'ing was obtained from 
a copy of the Pennsylvania Journal, of the date of ALiy 1, 1782: 

"The circumstances attending the death of the abo\e mentioned Philip White were as follows: On 
Saturday the 30th of March last, he was surprised by a party of our people, and after he had laid down, his 
arms, in token of surrendering himself a prisoner, he again tooli up his musket and killed a son of Col. 
Hendrickson: he was however taken by our light horse, and on his way from Colt's Neck to Freehold, 
where they were conducting him, he again attempted to make his escape from the guard, who called on 
him several times to surrender, but he continued running, often crossed and recrossed by the light horse, 
and desired to slop, and finally, when leaping into a bog, impassable bv the horse, he received a stroke 
in the head by a sword, which killed him instantly. The above facts have not only been proved by the 
affidavits of our friends who were present, but by the voluntary and candid testimony of one Aaron 
\^hite, who was taken prisoner with the said Pliilip." 

From Library of Pennsylvania Historical Society, in Philadelphia. Abstracts of 
letters from George Taylor Dennison to Jas. S. Lippincott. 

February 21, 1880. 
"I have gathered some further information since I wrote you last From an old draft of a peti- 
tion to the Lieut. Gov. of Canada, I find that Mrs. Lippincott's father was a magistrate before the v.ar, 

and died before the war commenced I may say that iNIrs. Lippincott was a near relative of Philip 

White and Alexander NNhite for we have an old book in our family which belonged to Alexander ^^hite 
brother of Philip we believe — but the tradition in our family is that Philip ^^'hite was a near relative of 
Captain or Mrs. Lippincott — a cousin or step brother — perhaps this may aid you somewhat. 

I have unearthed two old letters from Mrs. Lippincott to her husband when he was in England ;n 

1787 and 1788. From these letters it appears without doubt that they came from. Shrewsbury. -^Ls. 
Lippincott speaks of having received two letters from Shrewsbury, one from Sally Wardeli and cne from 
Sally De Ijow — both asking her to spend the winter with them — She also refers to one J. Knight and also 
of Joseph Parker who had gone to Shrewsbury to spend the winter and who had promised Mrs. Lippincott 
to call upon her friends there. She also appears to have had a sister in Shrewsbury. 

(Signed) George T. De.vison-." 

8th May, 1880. 

"My cousin Richard Lippincott Dennison has the old family Bible which belonged to the Captain 
— I think in fact that the J-iibie was Mrs. Lippincott's. Brittain \\'oolley was nearly related to us. Also 
a Mrs. Thompson who married a Captain Van Alien v.ho used to run a Lake Erie Steamboat. Her 
brother Mr. Ben Thompson, of St. Paul, Minnesota, is also a near relative. 

In 1867 I "ist a ?dr. Lippincott [this must have been Charles A. Lippincott, son of .Amelia, who died 
very aged] who told me he had often heard his mother speaking of Captain Lippincott. 1 afterwards 
saw his .mother's tombstone in Shrewsbury Churchyard which states that she died about thirty years 
ago aged over 90 years old."

In 1825, William and John White, as executors of "their brother" John's estate, 
obtained order from the Court in Monmouth Co., to sell some of his real estate in order 
to pay his debts. 

It is not known who were the parents of Deborah Tilton, his wife, but some things 
M'ould seem to indicate that she was a sister of the brothers, John and Clayton Tilton, 
Loyalists, also of New Brunswick, Canada. 

The list of their children and later descendants has been taken from a Ilislorx uf 
the llliite Family^ published tor private distribution, in 1906, by Mr. James E. White, 
one of the grandsons of William White.

I believe that the following Robert White was a son of Robert White, 10, and grand- 
son of Robert White, 2, and Frances (Stanley), his wife. But I have nothing to show 
in corroboration; and I Jiave also under the miscellaneous notes suggested that Robert, 
the son of Robert White, 10, was the father of another group of children. Which of 
these deductions is correct it is impossible to tell. 

1 ROBERT WHITE married Margaret, daughter of Hugh and Catharine (Tilton) 
Hartshorne. He was alive Oct. 10, 1773, when his son, Hartshorne, made his v/ill.

the beginning point. East Jersey Records, at Perth Amboy. 

1765, fmo., 18. Will of Catharine Hartshorne, of Middletown, widow of Hugh 
Hartshorne; proved Sep. 30, 1767, gave a legacy of 35 shillings a year to her grand- 
daughter, Margaret White, the daughter of Robert White and "my daughter Margaret, 
deceased;" and mentioned other children of the said Margaret as Richard, Deborah and 
Frances. 

1786, Mch. 15. Sarah Tole, widow of Richard Tole, conveys land to Robert White, 
"trader," which was bounded on the east by the Highway from the Church to Red

The following record was written by Benjamin White, 98, about the year 1825, and 
was copied for Mrs. George Hance, in October, 1865, by Henry F. Spaulding, from which 
copy a transcription was taken, in August, 1899, and this is a copy of such transcription. 
Since it was taken both the original and the copy have disappeared, and, on inquiry 
being made for the transcription where it was supposed to be, that also was found to 
have followed suit and become invisible. 

Benjamin White lived in what is now the Presbyterian parsonage, in Shrewsbury, 
a large part of which he built, as is set forth in these papers. He was a Quaker, and was 
familiarly known as "Book Muslin Bennie." The record of births, marriages and deaths, 
subsequent to his own death, were added, it is believed, by Mr. Spaulding, trom his 
own memoranda.

I have been tliinking for some time of lca\ing for my children, a short sketch of my life from e.irly

WHITl'. 01' XF.W JERSEY 381 

God has preserved my life from many dangers nis:h unto death which the remembrance thereof has given 
nic izreat cause for thankfuhiess and gratitude to my preserver. 1 was born on the 4th dav of the I2th 
iiio. i/sf. My father George White son of 'I'lionias and Christian N\'hite, my Mother Anna daughter of 
John I.ippinco'tt she dying when ] was young, 1 liave but a slight remembrance of her. At lier death slie 
left in my father's care (7) seven children the youngest twins: \'iz., John, Sarah, Thomas, Robert, Benja- 
min, Joseph and NMlliam. The last two were about nine months old. My father had a great care on his 
hands to provide for this family of small children. He lived a widower the remainder of his life. .My 
dear fatiier met with a serious accitlcnt, \vhicl\ I think shortened his lite. He went up in the store house 
chamber for something and returning he fell from the top step in the stairs to the bottom across a half- 
bushel which hurt hiiii very much from which he never recovered. \\'hen he was dying he requested that 
all his children should be at his bedside, he gave us all good ativice taking one at a time by the hand, 
iicginning at the eldest and so on down to the youngest. I can remember soine of his words while hold 
of my hand — Beniamin, he said, farewell — be a good boy and do not run about on first da\s. ^^'e all 
then went out of tlie room weeping in tears for our dear father. My aunt intormed me since that he 
requested them not to weep for him for he was going to a place ot rest he said he saw the angels around 
him as white as snow and I believe he is now in the realms ot bliss I hope I may be prepared to meet him. 
We were now left without either father or mother our things were sold at ^'endue which last three days. 
I then went to li\e with my uncle John \^ hite, and went to school a short time atter which I worked on 
the farm for my uncle Thomas ^^'hite where I remained till I went to learn the tailors trade of Abel Middle- 
ton, Crosswicks. He also kept a store and made too tree use ot ardent spirits which made him neglect 
both trade and store. I had to come once a vear to see my friends in Shrewsbury. My time was inost of 
it spent in working on his farm and I had a small prospect ot learning my trade. Atter a while I went to 
work with Jacob Cook to obtain an insight ot the tailoiing business. Atter that 1 applied to Edward 
Weaver of Jacob Town, and bound myself by an Indenture until I was twenty one years of age. I 
remained with him untill he was taken sick with consumption which was some years — he went to live with 
his sister at Colestown, and I went at journey work with Thomas Bliss of Bordentown. I afterwards 
heard that my master was near the close ot lite, I went to him at Jacobstown, and found the_price he asked 
for my time. I took the money I had earned at Bordentown and ot a friend, gave my note tor the balance 
and paid my master for my time. I then returned went to work earned anough to pay off my note and 
then worked with Levi Budd at the new Miles until I had an offer to go to, Philadelphia where 1 remained 
for some time — until I was taken very sick and had to leave the city and returned to West Jersey, and 
boarded with my old mistress Polly iNIiddleton, where I remained for some time in very poor health — 
was reduced very low. My frieiids thought dropsy or consumption would be my end. I was recommended 
to drink cheese whey, which I did and made the Cheese curd my diet. In a short time thereafter through 
the kind providence of God my health returned. Atter which I returned to Philadelphia, and then went 
to New "i ork to see my brothers John and Robert. I also thought I would visit my relatives and friends 
in Shrewsbury. I came on a boat with Capt. Wardell and Slocum, in company with Peter Parker old 
Joseph Allen and Thomas Seebrook the wind north east and snowed a little the sea rolled heavily and 
one tirne we thought we shold all be lost, after much labor we passed safely into the River I ha\'e often 
admired the goodness of a kind Providence — our lives from a watery grave — the night was dark and there 
was ice in the river and with much labor we broke our way through the ice until we reached the shore. 
Soon after that I was gunning after ducks down the river in company with a boy a \-ery cold day cur boat 
drifted from us we were left on the sedges and came near perishing with cold. Atter my visit in Shrews- 
bury I returned to Philadelphia and worked at my trade till the sound of war. I then went to New 
York and worked Journey work with my brother Robert. We had a room and kept Batchelor's hall, 
our furniture was a bed, chest, ; cups and' 2 spoons, our pro\'isions we kept in the chest. Brother Robert 
was cook and I went to market we made ourseh'es as happy as we could we had to depend on our labor 
for our living and to save time he done the cooking nights, lie met with a misfortune spraint his ankle and 
had to lay up for some tim.e — how long we might have continued in this way is uncertain if the v.'ar had 
not progressed as I shall mention hereafter. As I lay in bed one night I heard the firing of large guns. I 
immediately arose and went into the city and found the people in great confusion, drums beat to Arms. 
The ship, Asia \'.a3 laying off in the ri\er firing upon the town. The people were removing the large guns 
from the Battery and I had iiold and helped mo'.e them nothing now but war preparations going on some 
moved out ot town, business was on a Decline, we soon broke up housekeeping and I took the stage tor 
Crosswicks boarded v.ith my old mistress and followed my trade. Being often fined for not doing military 
duty I left and came to Shrewsbury, and went to making sait by boiling seawater — did not answer — I 
returned to West Jersey continued my trade until the battle of Trenton when Gen. Washington with his 
army crossed the Delaware River, took the Hessians at the battle of Princeton, Gen. Putnam r^nd Mifflin's 



38i HISTORICAL MISCKLLAXV 

head-quarters was with my old mistress where I boarded and every one must do something cither go the 
British, to Jaile, or join the American Army. They were in want of forages for their horses and wanted 
some one well acquainted with the farmers, wh.ere the British had not been. I told Gen. Putnam, if he 
would give from under his iiand tliat the teams should not be prized, I would procure them plenty, whi(.!i 
lie did and I bought hay, corn, cheese, cvc. and sold it to the Army so when the .Armv moved to Princeton 
I was appoi.nted ^^'agon .Master, and remained with the .Army for some time, I drew Captain's pay had 
my horse saddled always reatiy tor an alarm or marching ortlers. Everey morning I had all the brigade 
of Wagons drove up, and sent some for wood, some tor hay, grain \"c. The carters must have my written 
order or they could not obtain either pro\-isions for themselves or feed for their horses. \^ hile in the 
army I tried to be useful both to the .Army and to the farmers in returning property unlawfully taken, 
being at Stoney Brook Samuel ^^orth informed me that his team had been prized and he never expected 
to see it again iiad been gone some time in the way for Morristown. I obtained the team and sent it to 
the owner. I also helped Isaac Field obtain his horse. I went with him from Bristol to Burlington with 
a military guard. None could cross the ferry unless in the service of the Army neither the v.agon or horse 
could have been obtained if I had not been respected by the officers in the .Army. Samuel Worth above 
mentioned was a brother to Mary Middleton my old mistress. .As soon as I could I left the Army, and 
presented my certilicate tor serx'ices as \N agon Master in the .Army, and I drew Continental Monev. 
After a short tiine I returned to my native soil, Shrewsbury, with but little money as to value, it being 
Continental and old Jersey money. I went to work at my trade. My brother Robert worked at distilling 
in Partnership with Robert Bown. After some time a French fleet came to anchor off Jumping Point 
and sent their boats ashore for water. They \\ere cut off by the British fleet from obtaining water at the 
watering places. I assisted them in carting their empty casks filling them and returning them through 
the surf to the boats. After the fleet had sailed a large drove of cattle arrived for their use, but as they 
had sailed I went with the drove to Gen. Maxwell's .Armv then laying at Spottswood. Col. White's 
troop of horse and Maj. Lee were then at Brown Brook they had taken the horse "Heron" then owned by 
R. Bown and my uncle Thoinas \M"iite. I went for the horses "Heron" and one for Nathan Justious — 
his answer was T. White mv uncle was an old Tory and would not let me have him he delivered up Nathan 
Justious horse which I led home to his owner. The other after sometime was returned and mv brother 
Robert with myself purchased a '4 of a share for £46 and sold the same to my uncle T. White and ncv^er 
received a penny from him or from his estate. This is the end of old "Heron" so to return to my former 
memory and trials in the war. I returned to my trade. I was seldom idle, strove to make a living and 
lay up all I could while I had health. Robert Bowne proposed to my brother Robert that we should keej) 
a small store, and he would assist us. We then hired .Martin .Miars wife to keep house for us. We began 
with 3'2 lb. of butter, i lb. Pork and a few potatoes. We had no china, but it was much better than being 
in the army, still we were not far from them. We were so near the line, that in the fore part of the night 
we had British and Refugees, in the morning the American troops. My brother was called a Kings man 
or Refugee and myself a Rebel and friend to Jersey troops. Colonel Ford and Lee cam.e. We had to 
find quarters for the army. The dwellings for some distance around were occupied by soldiers. \\'e gave 
up our kitchen and cellar. Sometimes after this we commenced our store, began with a little tea. Barrel 
of sugar, papers, a pr. small scales with other small articles and i hhd. Rum. Apple spirit we had plenty 
as we carried on the distilling business at that time, ^^'e had gone on in this way but a short time' when 
a large party of British and Refugees came oft in order to surprise and take Col. i7ord, with all his troops 
but they were informed just in time so as the rear of our troops passed the lanes by Wardells or where 
Tilee Williams now resides the whole of the British forces came on their rear shot and chased thein to 
the Falls, but being so enraged that they had lost their prey that they set fire to the houses and burned 
many of them and plundered on their return. I hid most of our dry goods but they broke open the 
store, robbed us of what they could, filled their canteens with spirits and let it run to waste. My brother 
was from home. They had my mare out and going off with ner. I ran and got hold of her and while 
I was tusling with the soldier others were plundering mv house, the guns left by our troops were broken 
across the fence. They seemed like wild or mad men. I kept hold of my mare until some of the .Amer- 
ican troops who was in persute hred at them he then left me and run across the gravevard, so I saved my 
mare and some of the plunder. 1 had often to go to Philadelphia to buy goods. My brother was not 
acquainted, and I had that to do, but when he v.ent out to work at his trade, I staid at home to watch 
and when I .vent he did the same, so we always kept busy trying to make a living, war appeared all 
around us — we were constantly in danger — near the line — between two tires — through favor we were 

Preserved. We started very early one morning to gunning at Black Point, Judiah Allen's brother and 
Tothcr Robert the weather was very cold. I shot some fov.-l and in going for it on the ice 1 broke through 
— lost my gun in the v.arcr and cr.m.e near drownding. 1 was expecting every moment to sink under the

to the top ot tile water and with great effort I gradually cralcd on the ice, and as I moved I said, am I 
yet alive, and I praised my Maker tor deliverance. John Hartshornc had been an eye witness to all my 
struggles in the water, but dared not come to me until I was on the strong ice, he then gave me his arm 
and helped me to NN'iiiow >Lirshes ta\ern at Black I'oint. They put me to bed, I I'elt as if I should per- 
ish with the cold, when the trost began to come out ot me it resembled the steam from a boiling pot. In 
tlic evening I was conveyed home my agitation was so great that 1 tound but little sleep mv thoughts 
were c)n so great deliverance and at this time when I pen these lines I can say that I feel that I am a 
monument ot his Mercies, and have great cause to bless His dear name for all his tavors. The skin of 
my hands all pealed olT like a potatoe, my gun was fished up with oyster tongs. As soon as 1 was able 
1 started for Philadelphia for goods in a sleigh, at Burlington we went on the ice on the river to the city 
and back again which was never done before nor since to my memory — the winter was very se\-ere. The 
ground froze to great depth. Joseph Lippencott died that winter and in digging his grave it was all 
frozen ground. ^Ve kept our store going for sojiie time and then my brother married ^^'illiam Crawford's 
daughter, then our housekeeper left and we were much better suited. I was very fond of g\inning after 
water fo\\l. I went to Little Sih'cr and put my gun in the boat with the muzzle toward me, there was 
ice in the boat, the gun slipped, the lock struck the timbers and she went otf the whole load passed through 
tl'.e bow of the boat, I stood by the side of the boat near the bow, this I saw was another great deliverance, 
and 1 could say what shall I render unto the Lord for so many tavors and benefits. We rented the house 
we lived in and kept store in the front part, afterwards we bought it ot John Corlies and paid the cash 
down, we bought it in partnership. It was the lot where I now live, we strove for an honest living and 
we had our health and seemed to be blessed. Sometime after I married Mary Morris, the war still con- 
tinued. We lived in a small way in a small house which I bought of my wifes brother John Morris. 
Sometimes after my brother Robert told me that he must move. I tound that he was in earnest. I 
told my wife that we must move in as I could not leave the store. Brother R. mo\'ed where he now 
hves — our families increasing we divided the household goods, and began to charge each other with what 
we took out of the store before this we each had out of the store without charge for many years. We 
have now obtained our Independence. War is at an end. We have agreed to give Quit Claim to each 
other, and I pay him the difference I took the lot in Shrewsbury town, and he the one where he now 
lives — througn much hard work both my wife and myself we build a new home. My cellar is 32 x 42 
and 7 feet deep. I asked the mason how many stone he would want for the cellar wall he said fill the 
hole full just leave room enough for him to stand. I worked very hard getting the material for my 
cellar. I'he free stone in front came from Newark. The day I raised my house was a busy day. I 
had made up my mind not to have any rum, or spirits of any kind on the day of raising, althougn the 
expense was greater. I had a barrel of good beer with plenty of good cider and wine and eggs in the 
morning — it was raised without accident. The next morning as I was walking on the foundation show- 
ing my wife where the little bedroom was to be I fell with my breast on the joice hanging with both hands 
for some time at last fell to the bottom of the cellar. I was hurt \'erv much was bleeding in both arms 
and confined to my bed for some days. As soon as I was able I went to Philadelphia tor more goods by 
the way of Bordentown while the war continued I had to go on horseback to Philadelphia generally 
tv/o teams met me at Bordentown sometimes in freezing cold winter and at other times hot schoring 
summer days — through all I have been preserved to the present moment and I have cause to be thank- 
ful. A law has been passed in Jersey that all goods tound going towards the enemy's lines or coming 
out of Philadelphia should be seized and one half should go to the informer the other half to the state 
unless the owner was qualified that they were imported according to law — therefore all goods which I 
bought I presented to the Notary Public and was sworn or aflirmed that what they sold me were so 
imported 1 also had the large seal of Pennsylvaia when they arrived at Bordentown. One Peter Tallman 
came with a company of men and said the goods were contraband and he should detain them as such. I 
showed him my invoice all attested and according to law, after looking them over he handed them, back 
and replied that I had acted well and hoped every one would be as careful and guarded as I had been, 
but very few believed him, as he had been watching for the goods and would have been better suited 
to have kept them and a very great disappointinent to him and many others in his gang. Richard Da\-is 
was in company with me and uncle Letson drove our team and Lamon Taylor his it was a fine pass time 
for all of them when they saw Tallman so chop fallen and all his gang skunk away. After I had paid 
my bill at the tavern we started for Shrewsbury and arri\ed home sate. I mention this to show that 
we had to be as wise as s.erpants and ought to have been as harmless as doves. I mentioned the raising 
of iny house which was after the war and peace proclaimed then we began to ship goods from New 'i'ork.

My house was begun in. tlie year 1789 and finished in 1790, we both my wife and myself worked very 

W'e had a taniily ot young children and many work people to provide tor but we were blessed with good 
health tlirough tlie goodness of a kind providence. We linisned the house and moved the kitchen to 
the cast end of the house. It has served for that use ever since. My brother liobert felt dissatistiti! 
that I had a new house and lie none. 1 told him that I would assist him in building one. I helped him 
until his house was all completed and then built his barn. Dr. Johnson was much in debt and had to s.-il 
his corner house and land — we bought it and found it \ ery much encumbered with mortgages 6cc. It 
cost us a great deal of money and trouble. He owed some in Xew Biainswick, some above New York. 
I had to go to all who had claims on the estate and pay them oti-', so we still own all except what wc 
sold to Corlies and Allen, the stone hill out southward is a part of the bargain. Then I bought in com- 

Eany with Brother Robert 20 acres of woodland of James Williams — 50 acres of Daniel Williams, out 
y Bill Cratts. I claimed a right on 100 acres near Natts Hill — I let Brother Robert have one iir.If, 
bought 40 acres ot John Morris. I bought the old Sand field adjoining it and the new ground more or 
less which makes the land square. 1 built a small house on it and planted 2 orchards and fenced it. I 
also bought a lot adjoining the above built a small house and repauxd the barn. Bought of James R. 
Holmes \'andue 3 Lots ot Woodland at Chestnut plains, also at the same time two lots of Woodland of 
John Holmes, one near the Falls 67 acres the other by Polly Britons 58 18/100 acres, which 1 paid lor 
in Silver Money, and all the rest has been paid for which the deeds will show. I mention the above lots 
to let my children know how they came to be mine as well as the dwelling houses and out houses thev 
came by industry and hard labor, with the great goodness of the All wise Providence. He can bless a 
little and blast a great deal. 1 hope I may ever be truly thankful for all his favors and say what sh.al! 
1 render unto thee O Lord for all thy benefits and favors. This brings to my mind another favor. I 
went to New York with my wife Mary to buy goods she went Westchester to visit brother John White. 
I sent my goods on board ot a Boat lying at the foot of Peck Slip, to sail next day for Shrewsbury. My 
wife had returned to Robert Bowns. I went to the boat in the evening to put something on Board, it 
being dark I fell into the water from the dock and put my shoulder out of joint. I found a ring and 
cable in the corner of the dock which I held unto and cried for help, and the Mounts on board heard 
me and helped out of the water to R. Bowns house. Dr. Simmons came and set my shoulder. It made 
a loud report when replaced. They bound me with silk handkercheifs in my chair v.'hen he bled me, 1 
fainted away. I went on board next day and arrived safely at home. This 1 mention as another nar- 
row escape from death. My brother R. seldom went from home I often thought he did not know the 
dangers and hardships 1 had to pass through, but his health would not permit him, and not being so 
much in the store his judgment was not so good in buying or selling. I was very fond of fishing and gun- 
ning whenever I had an opportunity. It gave me new life. I often caught Sheepshead, Barb, Bass 
and other fish with hook and line. I owned a large fishing seine, but of late I found it did not answer 
and I sold the seine boat and ropes to Dr. Longstreet. He broke so I lost all. I then had John King's 
boat and his son Benjamin a small lad we fished in the channel near Tallman's Creek. We concluded 
to lioist sail and run down to the Beech. In doing so the Skiff upset. The boy and myself got on to 
the bottom of the boat. I lost my hat — it sunk to the bottom. We remained there for sometime. 
At last William Richard and Samuel Lain came from Rumson to our deliverance they refused receiving 
anything for their services but I think I have since rewarded them. I came to John Kings without a 
hat and glad to get home alive. This was just betore my daughter Betsey was married to Amos Tilton. 
They had passed meeting. I hardly expected to see it accomplished when on the bottom of the boat 
in the channel, but blessed be his Holy Name I am still a .monument of his Mercies. My brother John 
proposed to join us in partnership, he to purchase all the goods and I to take charge of the store and 
share the profits equally. We purchased a boat, alter a while business declined our boat did not p.iV 
ware and tare. The hands run away \sith all the profits. We mutually dissolved partnership and I 
had to buy all the goods, and have ever since. When we dissolved partnership with Brother John it 
was agreed that we should pay him a commission tor purchasing goods we wrote tor, but when we settled 
he wanted pay for all goods bought. I thought hard in his so doing but I let it pass. I had a large family 
to support. My wife and myself had to rise early and work hard to support them. I had an old un- 
settled account with Brother Jolm for lumber from Ludlow's Yard. .Atter his death his son Gccge 
(was not a member of the Friends; became much embarrassed. I concluded to let it go with the rest, 
but it gave me some consolation that they all alowed it to be mv just due. From inability my brother 
Robert was seldom in the store he was very fond of setting up diiTerent mechanics, but not to see to any 

tart of selling or carrying them on. He in company with Joseph Parker built a saw mill — Betsey Parker's 
usband. He was a pc)or tool .^or his wor'k.s proved him to be so — he had the worst work in buildmg the 
mill done in cold sh^ii. dr.vc — men v.-orked v.'ith n-.ittcns. .At last he began sawing we v/cre to have halt. 



WHI'JT Oi'^ X1-;\V j(:RSKY ^585 

Whcn we sent for our halt wc found that lie had carted it all to our store and we had been huving our own 
boards. \Ve also bought ol Jo_b Morris a plantation near the sawmill a man and his wife was on the 
place we were to have one hair ot the butter and cheese it served for country seat at Squancom — in a 
short time all seemed to be eoing to decay and we sold both the plantation and the saw mill and took 
horses and so on for pay and I'id tarewell to Squancom. \\'e next set up a blacksmith and cooper shop 
furnished each with tools. The blacksmith turned horseeler and the cooper lazy and the shop and tools 
all fell on our hands. We next set up John \Vinans in a hat factory — found him fur. He spoiled all the 
hats and came out ot the little end of the horn. At'ter that old Molly DeCamp started a store in Turkey- 
town. We supplied her with goods. At first it looked like doing well. She got in debt and moved off 
to Brunswick we lost all the debt with costs. Then Thomas Tilton proposed for us to supply him v.'ith 
goods at Squan and give us half the profits — he might have done very well had he not trusted so much, 
also his son \N'illiam lived in New York whom he supplied with lumber paid tor out of the store which 
caused its niin. I believe Thomas Tilton to be an honest upright man — omitted manv thines not Iiaving 
learning. We had all matters settled by Arbitration after his death. Now all the above I .mention to 
show my children that all our schemes failed where we had to trust to other persons to do our business 
and found but little dependence to be placed in any one when it was not under my eye and examine the 
accounts myself and not trust it to others. I then drew all my business into a small compass and found 
it not so much perplexity. The corner house we rented for a ta\Trn to a man named Joseph ^'imk. It 
was attended with so much trouble to collect the rent and keep the house in repair which all fell on me. 
The house was on fire several times and would have burned down if I had not obtained help speedily. 
He was a bad man and 1 had many long law suits to get him out so I had it fixed in my mind to sell 
when a chance offered and 1 sold it to Corlies and Allen they have paid me in full, and to return m.y 
daughter Caroline who had all the charge of the store when I was away from [home] was taken from me 
by death. She was much esteemed by all who knew her and was company for both young and old. She 
departed with praise to her Maker, and I beleive she is now in the realms of Bliss. My dear v.'it'^e began 
to complain. She was a very stiring woman and would never give up unless very Bad. I have ob- 
served her cheerfulness when in her bodily weekness, yet with a composed mind. She would entertain 
company as though nothing ailed her. She had a sweet temper — good disposition and kind to the poor 
and ner steps will long be remembered. I beleive she is now with the dear children in the blessed abode 
singing her Maker's praise, the loss I felt more than this pen can mention, but I said the Lord gave and 
the Lord hath taken away blessed be forever the name of the Lord. I hope I may so live and end my days 
that we may both again meet never to part. When we were first married we had to use great economy. 
1 began lite with very little property. I had a small store had been plundered by the Refugees, I was 
called a Rebel having always taken an active part in the American cause and had' been a wagon-master 
under General Putnam, but had an acquital t'rom him — honorably and had retired to the land of my 
nativity in order to settle in life more agreeable to my mind — and this the Refugees and Tories knew as 
I had informed them that 1 halt left the army. I would also say just before we were married, rhe tories 
robbed my wite of her last bed. She sat on it until they dragged both her and the bed into the street, 
it is our duty to firgive but we cannot forget them. And it was my opinion — is now — that none but 
true Americans should be at the head of Government aftairs and it is duty to keep all Foreigners from 
Public office, but use them well w^hile they behave well keep them from office as much as possible. Wo 
ha\-e obtained our Independence and we ought to be very thankful to Him for the same and the way for 
us to keep it is to live in love for all but trust none to conduct the aifairs of the Nation but true Ameri- 
cans. This much I thought might not be amiss to pen at this time. There is one thing I omitted on the 
first part ot this paper W hen making arrangements to pay my Master who lav sick at Cooperstown I 
took what money I earned at Bordentown, and borrowed the Balance of Jonathan Chesar. 1 had seen 
him at my fathers and also at my uncles Thomas White while I lived with him and had the care of his 
horse. 1 '.vas a poor lad and he was the only one I could think of who would trust me for the money and 
he did. I was very bare tor shirts at the time my master paid me back two bills for that purpose, but I 
kept the very bills untill I earned m.oney enough to pav off my note — but I sold a pair ot new boots to 
help raise the money. I paid liim so soon he threw off the interest, for which I t.hanked him. I was 
advised not to pay for my time — I was only bound to him he could not sell it but this came to my mind — 
he will scon leave this world, and if I don't pay him his full demand when 1 meet him in the World of 
Spirits he would Ioo'k angry at me — so I made up my mind to pay him in full of all demands and I a.m 
very glad 1 did and it may be one cause and a great cause why I nave been so blest in basket and in store 
when I paid him, he bid me farewell and requested me to be nice and keep good company, not any low 
company but such as might improve me. I thanked him for his good advise lie died soon after. I 
mention this to show my children how good it is to attend to inward Monitor at all times in youth as wcl!

ns in old ac;e. \Villiani I'enn's advice to his son William is good he says: — "No cross, no crown, let noth- 
ing in the world tciTi]it you to wrong your conscience." 1 mention this to show how good iv is and csi_r 
will be to att'.-iid to the blessed Monitor \\ilhiir us. I have great cause to he thankful that in some measure 
1 have attended to it which has kept me in early lite from many grave e\"ils. .Xtter the dupaiture of my 
loving wife in a reasonable time I was inclined to marry my second wite judging it iar better than to hire 
a housekeeper for generally they have no interest in the family but their wages and there would be great 
waste of piroperty in and about the house what come in at the door flew out at the window tor they have 
friends and relations they wish to help. I have had a trial ot both and would choose to support a good 
wife and many children than one housekeeper hired by the v.eek. But this is a task for a widower to 
perform first the age — temper — religion — virtue — economy and agreeable to your family to study all 
this and consider it well and ask in secret that you may be blest in your undertaking with the Presence of 
Divine Providence, all this 1 think I tried to do in my second choice for a wile which as yet I have no 
cause to regret and 1 hope 1 never shall. I had known her trom childhood and her father and mother 
had both been kind to me when a stranger in a strange land. It is not my intention to mention our 
marriage as my children by my first wife all remember her. We had three children viz. — Stacy — William 
and Sarah. We have great cause to be thanklul tor so many favors and blessings having liealth and 
the means to entertain both freinds and stranger at our house. We have had the company of many 
from different parts of the world. 1 will mention of a great deliverance and recovery fronr a bed of sick'- 
ness. I had been in the sea and had taken cold and concluded to take a dose of Calomel which proved 
to be very severe. 1 was in great distress of body the Doctor had no hopes ot my recovery. I was 
greatly reduced and was obliged to lie very low tor nine or ten months. I was taken sick in tlie summer 
and remained so until late the next spring, when I gave over all hopes of ever recovering my health. My 
heart beat so tliat strong that you could see my waistcoat move at every motion. I had recourse to ever- 
ting 1 could think ot but none seemed to help me. At last one Doctor Perkins came to get some Medicines 
and told me that it was a nerve that led to my heart which was out of order and said it I would Itakej 
some conserve (or sweet meat) with port wine and solid food it would help me. I did so and had not 
used it more than two days before it began to amend and the blessing of health returned. I mention 
this as another great Mercy and favor to be remembered. This conserve is made of the real rose and 
leaf sugar or good broken lump sugar will answer i lbs. ot sugar to one pound ot buds and leaves pound 
the buds and leaves first then add the sugar and pound them all together — as I was in a very week state 
it seemed to brace me up and give me strength — I mention this that if any of my children or friends or 
any one else should ever be in the same way that they might [employ] the same remedy which through 
divine favor helped me, and be a benefit to some one else in a week state of health.

WHITLOCK 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY 



THOMAS WHITLOCK, an early settler in Gravesend and Westchester, New 
York, and later a resident of Middletown, New Jersey, was, I infer, the son of Thomas 
\Vhitlock,ot Rappahannock County, ^"irginia, who made his will Oct. 9, 1659, mentioning 
his wife Mary and his son Thomas. Firgi'/iia Magazhic of History ^ Vol. J'., p. 285. 

There is no evidence to support this inference; it is simply based upon the general 
harmony of dates, similarity of family names and the absence in 1655, of Thomas Whit- 
lock from Gravesend during which time his wife acted as his attorney. It is undoubtedly 
this Thomas Whitlock who is mentioned in the following paragraph: 1638, March 2. 
Richard Bennett, ot Isle of Wight County, ^'irginia, (page 626), had a grant of 300 acres 
ot land, upon the bay behind Ambrose Meders point and near Thomas Davis, in right 
of 6 persons by John Myles: John Myles, Tho Whitlock, Silvester Focher (changed), 
Robert Willey, William Harrison, Andrew Blackwell. 

Cavaliers i3 Pioneers, Calcjidar of Virginia Land Grants, page 148. 

Thomas Whitlock while in old England, tradition says, married a young woman 
under the following romantic circumstances: A party of lads and maidens were strolling 
over the fields on a bright Sunday afternoon when, coming to a hedge, one of the girls, 
Susanna Stock, threw her glove across it, and jestingly said she would give her hand 
to the one who could vault it. Athletic young Whitlock accomplished it and claimed 
the reward, saying it was fit that the Stock should go with the Lock. Certain it is 
that Whitlock had a daughter Susanna. 

Miss Harriet Bray, a student of Whitlock genealogy, wrote me: "I have heard 
many times the statement that Thomas \Miitlock married, for a first wife, Susanna 
Stock, and though I have searched diligently I have never found any evidence that such 
a person as Susanna Stock ever existed. Ot course I cant prove that she did not, but 
not a scrap ot proof could I ever unearth." 

During his residence in Gravesend, I-ong Island, he sold, Aug. [2] 25, 1655, through 
his wife, Mary,'' acting as his attorney, a house and lot to Joliii George Baldwin [Balden], 
and we know that he married, after 1675, Mary, the widow of Thomas Seabrook, ot 
Westchester town., Westchester Co., N. ^ . So that it is tair to suppose that lie had

three wives. His ajiparcnt absence in 1655, and the action ot his wife in disposinij or" 
his propcrt)' at the time, suggests that he was away, closing up Iiis affairs in an earlier 
home. 

Upon his advent in Gravesend he was allotted farm 38. 

In 1654, he bought a farm of Nicholas Stillwell in Gravesend. 

In 1657, he had hve acres of his farm in the North West quarter under cultivation. 

In October, 1663, he was one of the men, "armedi and well mounted," who joined 
the English troops at Jamaica. 

In December, 1663, he was a member of the Gravesend scouting expedition to 
Navesing region, later INIonniouth Co., N. J., who, in defiance of the Dutch, intciuied 
to buy and settle thereon. 

Judged by these last two actions he belonged to the discontented English con- 
tingent who had sought a home among the Dutch, but who desired to renounce their 
allegiance with the Connecticut settlements. 

1666, Oct. 7. Thomas Whitlock. and John Griggs were fined fifteen shillings each, 
for bargaining on the sabbath. 

1666, Oct. 24, he bought from Christianson jacobson [Wolf], lot 34 in Gravesend. 

1670. He had Guisbert Island rights assigned to him. 

1670, Apr. II. Nicholas Stillwell sold him lot 29 in Gravesend.

Whitlock received of Mr. Delavall five pounds of the above said soume of the which

red cloth which by them wase delivered to Bartholomew Applegate the husband oi[ the 
said Hanna for the use above said and the other twenty shilings, the remainder ot the 
five pounds wase deducted off to defray other charges and labor that Thomas Whitlock 
has been at for the use oi Hanna Applegate. [Not strictly verbatim et literatim.] 

1671, Nov. 6. Received of the Constable of Gravesend five pounds in red cloth 
upon the amount of ten pounds received of William Wilkins according to the Governor's 
order towards the release of Hanna Applegate and her child, by me Bartholomew Apple- 
gate. Attest: Will Goulding, Clarke. Gravesend Records. 

1672, Apr. 10. Thomas Whitlock, of Gravesend, sold lots 29 and 34, to Barent 
Johnson, of Amersford, which were to be delivered iMay i, 1673. On the same paper 
is endorsed: 

1679/80, Feb. 28. "This witnesseth that Thomas Whitlock, living att Westchester 
doth owne to be paid and ffully satisfied by Barent Juriansen of Gravesen.d,'' etc. 

During his residence in Gravesend, 1664, New Netherlands was surrendered to the 
English, and immediately Thomas Whitlock with his own and tour other families, 
settled upon the unbroken soil of Middletown, in Monmouth Co., N. J. 

In 1667, the settlement of this village was effected by a patent, granted in April, 
1665, by Governor Nicholls to the Monmouth Patentees and their Associates, and 
Thomas Whitlock received lots 4 and 34. 

In 1670, he was among the purchasers of land called Newasink, Narumsunk and 
Pootapeck. 

In 1673, Thomas Whitlock and his three sons, took the Oath of Allegiance to the 
Dutch, who had recently and tem.porarily re-entered New York, and at tlie same time 
the Dutch Go^-ernor, Calve, appointed him, (Thomas Whitlock, Sr.), ensign oi the

In 1675, Thomas Seabrook died leaving his widow, Mary, residing in Westchester, 
whither Thomas Whitlock soon betook himself, and wh.ere he must soon have married 
her, for he was sued ujuler the following circumstances: 

Roger Townscnd, in October, 1672, had sold land in ^Vcstcheste^ to Morgan Hedient, 
singleman, who, the following year, 1673, sold it to Thomas Seabrook. Both Bedient 
and Seabrook shortly died and the latter was succeeded in his property by his brother, 
Thoinas Bedient, who threatened an action against Thomas Whitlock, who had ap- 
parently married Mary, the widow of Seabrook, and who, in 1688, sedured a release 
from all claims owned by the said Bedient. 

There was also seemingly some confusion about other lands owned by Thomas Sea- 
brook, for the town of Westcliester decreed, April 22, 1692, that: 

Whereas there is a Twenty fRfve pound priviledge of Comonage belonging to the Orphant of Thomas 
Seabrook late freeholder of this Town Deceased the said Priviledge being in Po/se/sion of Thomas Whit- 
lock wee the Trustees do declare that the said twenty five pound privilege do belong to the orphant of 
Thomas Seabrook ^; no more intended for the said Thomas Whitlock. 

The relations between Thomas Whitlock and Daniel Seabrook, who was the 
"orphant" referred to, continued amicable, for Nov. 9, 1688, the latter was a witness 
in Middletown, X. J., whither he had removed, to a deed of Whitlock to John Ruckman, 
and, June 10, 1696, Thomas ^Vhitlock, of Middletown, carpenter, for £80, sold to "Daniel 
Seabrook, my son in law," of Middletown, planter, two hundred and two acres ot land, 
in Middletown, at Shoal Harbor, which included his proprietary grant of Jan. 10, 1676; 
land from John Bowne, Mch. 26, 16S9; land from John Pierce, Sep. 4, 1693, and more,

another, and, holding lands in each, was confusingly spoken ot as a resident of each, 
and as undivided lands were apportioned to non-resitient holders ho frequently was 
granted lands though absent. He also apparently bought and soUl property in these 
settlements as a speculation. 

A study of the records gives his residences as follows: 

1655, and earlier, at Gravesend. 

1664, at iMiddletown. 

1666, at Gravesend, where he probabl)- remained vmtil 1672. 

1673 to 1678, at Middlctown. 

1678 to 1686, at Westchester. 

1686 to 1703, at Middletown. 

The parentage of his children is unascertained, but it seems that the boys may have 
been, by reason of their age, by his first wife, as well as his daughter, Susanna, while 
the other children were probably the issue by one of his later wives. So tar as the deduc- 
tion concerning Susanna goes, I realize it is faulty, for to have been the daughter of a 
Susanna, she must have been born prior to 1655, when Thomas Whitlock had a wife, 
Mary, and we know that Susanna Pew, his daughter, was living in 1760, which would 
have made her one hundred and five years and upwards. It is also worthy of note that 
Thomas Whitlock left no daughter, Mary, though he had two wives by that name. It 
may be, ot course, that he had such a child, and that she died young. 

Thomas Whitlock was an energetic and aggressive man, of restricted education, 
but endowed with a strong, clear mind, v/hich, coupled v/ith integrity, placed him high 
in the esteem of his fellow townsmen, who selected him to fill the positions ot constable, 
grand juror, foreman of jury, town surveyor, etc. 

"Carelessness, physical bravery and unlimited hospitality are Whitlock traits." 

The walking stick of the first Thomas Whitlock, marked "Thomas Whitlock, 1692," 
is owned by Joseph Whitlock, of New York City. 

His widow, INIary, was a communicant of the Middletown Baptist Church, in 171 2, 
as also another of like name, Mary Whitlock, who was likely the wife of John \\hitlock, 
4. The latter is again mentioned in the Church list of 173 1. 

Mary, wife of Thonias Whitlock, the first, is further alluded to under the Seabrook 
family. 

The original will of Thomas Whitlock is on file as well as of record at Trenton, N. J. 
A copy of it is as follows:

He was included in his father's application for lands, in 1675, but as no patent was

wrote me: "I am quite disappointed that you have not yet located Abigail ,

lacks an husband and I have been tempted to marry her to Samuel Ogborne and defy 
the interested to prove that she was not. She is the onh' Abigail at large I can. hnd

recollect that Samuel Ogborne, the Second, came trom West Jersey, and may have 
brought his wife with him.
