Kirtland of Syracuse, it comes to mind that they were men of practical trend who grappled with the problems of everyday life, pioneers, soldiers, farmers, West India traders, ministers, educa- tors; for Mr. Kirtland enjoys the esteem of his fellow citizens by his personality, not only, but by the feat of building up a large and prosperous stationery business from a small beginning.

The first immigrants to New England by the name of Kirtland came over on the ship Hopewell from London April 1, 1635, and they were registered "Phillip Kyrt- land 21 nath: Kyrtland 19 of Sherington in Bucking- hamsher." James Savage, the wonderful chronicler of the early New England families, locates them in Lynn, Mass., the same year. His record of the first Kirtlands is correct so far as it goes; but he curiously mistakes in another place by recording Nathaniel 2 and Philip 3 under the name of Catlin in Wethersfield, Conn. In his life of the Rev. Samuel Kirkland in Sparks' American Biography (1664), Dr. Samuel K. Lothrop, related by marriage to the famous missionary to the Oneida Indians and founder of Hamilton College, next writes : "The Kirkland family, as the name indicates, is of Scotch descent. In this country it may be traced back to Saybrook, Ct., in 1635. Among the thirty-six heads of families who were early settlers of that place, the name of John Kirkland appears, who is said to have come from Silver street, London. He had a son John who was the father of ten children, of whom Daniel, the father of Reverend Samuel, was the youngest but one." This interesting bit of family history is all right ex- cepting, that the name is wrong, that the descent is not Scotch, that the first John of the Saybrook line was not an early settler; that his father was not John, an early settler who did not exist, but Nathaniel 2 Kirtland of Lynn, Mass.; that the Silver street tradition is still un- supported by any known fact of history. THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA The Rev. F. W. Chapman, in his Pratt Family (1864) discovers the link between John Kirtland of Saybrook and the Lynn Kirtlands. He still retained the Silver street tradition, but ascribed it to Nathaniel 2 of Lynn, the real father of John 3 of Saybrook, instead of the mythical John of Dr. Lothrop. In 1867 Henry F. Waters contributed to the New England Genealogical and Historical Register the fol- lowing abstract of an old English will: "John Kirtland of Tickford in the parish of Newport- Pagnell, County Bucks., Gentleman, 12 Dec, 1616, proved 1 Aug., 1617. To son Nathaniel all that part of my dwelling house in Tickford wherein I now inhabit, sometime called by the name of Emberton's, adjoining to the tenement in tenure of William Coningham and to the house and ground of me the said John Kirtland, sometime Thomas Horton's. Legacies to Mary Kirtland my now wife, sons Francis and Joseph Kirtland and daughters Abigail, Susanna and Mary Kirtland. To my eldest son John Kirtland the house or tenement some- time Thomas Horton's (next the above) and adjoining a tenement of heirs of William Barton deceased. Wife Mary and her five children as above. To godson John Kirtland son of my brother Philip Kirtland, 14s 4d, and to the rest of the children of said Philip 2s 6d each to be paid unto the said Philip for their use. To the chil- dren of my brother Francis Kirtland 2s 6d apiece. To Francis Foster clerk 10s. Wife Mary to be executrix, friends George Hull and John Horley of Newport-Pag- nall to be overseers. "Phylipp Kyrtland one of the witnesses." Herein lay the nucleus of the hitherto uncertain problem of the earliest Kirtland families in this country, but Waters went no farther than to suggest that the will might furnish the ancestry of the Rev. Samuel Kirkland. The Kirtland history lay dormant until V. C. Sanborn (1894) perceived the full significance of the December 22. , 1943. sar Mrs. Watkins, The Hartford Times for Saturday, scember 18, 1943 gives the following on the enealogy page: CORRECTION of 3165, (l) KIRTLAND - WELCH, ov. 27, 1943, in which many errors occurred, ate of birth, 1804, of Gilbert Kirtland, vas rom burial record.

Sa THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 7 will. He built a clever piece of constructive genealogy thereon, which finally, and with practical completeness, determined the true foundation of the Kirtlands of America. Sanborn evidently made no attempt to go be- yond Savage's chronicle of the first Kirtland families. My researches have gone farther afield, and add material facts and details hitherto unrecorded in genealogy. KIRTLAND OR KIRKLAND? Both English and American authorities make the surname Kirtland a variation of Kirkland. Lower's Patronymica Britannica couples the two forms under Kirkland. Guppy's Homes of Family Names gives Kirkland but not Kirtland. In this country we have both forms, but we know that for five generations the Kirklands were Kirtlands. In his life of Rev. Samuel Kirkland in Sparks' American Biography (1864), Rev. Samuel K. Lothrop asserts the name Kirkland to be of Scotch origin. He was a minister, was related by marriage to the Kirk- lands, and probably accepted the traditions of that fam- ily as to the form and origin of the name. Rev. F. W. Chapman, genealogist of the Kirtlands of Connecticut (1867), makes the positive statement that Dr. John Thornton Kirkland, the distinguished president of Harvard (1810-1828), a son of the Rev. Samuel Kirkland, was the first Kirtland in this country to change his name to Kirkland, which was adopted or applied to his paternal family. This puts him on record, as a fair inference, as having decided Kirtland to be a corrupt form of Kirkland. He might well have been favorably inclined to this view by the fact that his father and grandfather, as well as himself, were of the ministry. V. C. Sanborn in the N. E. Gen. and Hist. Register, 1886, suggests Curtland (meaning lack-land) as the derivation of the name. This harks back to the German 8 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA Kurz=short. Lewis and Newhall, the local historians of Lynn, Mass., where the Kirtlands first settled in this country, ascribe the origin of the name to the "German" Cortlandt, which of course is Dutch. The earliest colonial records of this country exploit an interesting array of spellings of the name; viz., Kirtland, Kertland, Kurtland, Kyrtland, Curtland, Cort- land, Certland, Cirtland, Cartland, Catlin, Catline, Catlyne, and the Dutch of New Amsterdam heard it Cartelyn. At this early time, the 17th century, English had not become a written language so far as to have attained a regular form of spelling. It was phonetic, and vagarious, as a natural consequence, in writing. Personal names had no exception; indeed, the same per- son often spelled his name variously. So great a name as Shakespeare is a notable example. The significant fact to be noted in the astonishing vagaries of colonial spellings of the Kirtland name is that the t invariably persists. I am convinced that the coupling of the names Kirt- land and Kirkland is a misapprehension. Rather I am of opinion that they are distinct patronymics in origin and also in usage until confused in recent times. Our earliest authentic record of the Kirtland name in Eng- land (1616) is the will of John Kirtland of Tickford, Buckinghamshire, signed as witness by Phylipp Kyrt- land, his brother. The earliest original Kirtland signa- ture in this country is Philip Kirtland (1643), which is found among the signatures of leading men of Lynn, Mass., on the petition of Goody Armitage for a license for an ordinary. It is here reproduced from the New England Genealogical and Historical Register (1879). ./tvVp £.cf4$ This may have been the signature of Philip the father, but I judge the spelling fixes it on Philip his son. The THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 9 two other sons, John and Nathaniel, spelled the name Kirtland, as did their uncle John, whereas the father wrote it Kyrtland. It seems more reasonable to seek the origin of the name in the word court; that is, Courtland, he of the court land, or demain reserved for the immediate sup- port of the lord's castle. The Century Dictionary gives the etymology of the word court as: Middle English, court, cort, curt; Anglo-French, court; Old French, cort, curt, court; French, cour — Provencal, cort — Spanish, Portugese, Italian, corte; Middle Latin, cortis, a court- yard, yard, villa, farm, palace, retinue; Latin, cor(t-)s, contraction of cohor(t-)s, a place inclosed; akin to Eng- lish yard, garth, garden; hence courteous, courtesy, courtier, etc. Probably the name is of French origin, and was introduced into England with the Norman con- quest. The fact remains, however, that with the sole exception of that branch of the family in this country which deliberately changed the name after five genera- tions, Kirtland has existed as a distinct and honorable name for three hundred years. Burke's General Armoury gives the blazon of the arms of Curtland, without time or place, as Or, three cinquefoils pierced gules. Kirkland, meaning of the church land, is a good old English family name. Guppy locates it in Nottingham- shire and Derbyshire. Personal and place names spring- ing from the word kirk=church, Anglo-Saxon kirke, are common throughout England and Scotland. In this country the name has acquired prominence through Rev. Samuel Kirkland and President John Thornton Kirkland and their association and family alliances with the min- istry and letters. But they and their good works properly belong to the Kirtlands, for by birth and several genera- tions of pedigree they were Kirtlands. 10 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA THE KIRTLANDS AS PATRIOTS. A review of the Kirtland history shows that this family is born in the blood and bred in the bone of the country. They played a courageous role in planting English civilization in the New World. They shared the adventure and dangers of the first English occupation of Long Island. They were in the brunt of that most terrible onslaught which the New Englanders had to meet, King Philip's great marshaling of Indian forces to exterminate the invading paleface, when the only two of the name capable of doing so served in the ranks. They responded to call in the French and Indian War. In the establishment of American political freedom and this great republic, to a man they fought conspicuously beside their fellow patriots. Connecticut Men in the Revolution lists three captains, two ensigns, one cornet, one corporal and five privates of the name, and three privates of the Kirkland name ; whereas the first national census of 1790 gives only eleven heads of Kirtland families for Connecticut, all of Saybrook, four for Massa- chusetts, one for New Hampshire, two for New York, and one for Pennsylvania. It is evident, therefore, that every Kirtland who could bear arms came to the front in loyal duty in that momentous struggle. AN INTERCOLONIAL INCIDENT. Nathaniel 2 Kirtland and Philip 2 Kirtland were prin- cipals in a threatening episode between the Colony of Massachusetts and New Amsterdam. When the New England colonists thought the time ripe to grab Long Island, they easily found excuse and justification. Had not Captain George Weymouth, an Englishman bold, sailed cheerily by in 1605 and looked at its inviting wooded shores with streams of fresh water running down? And had not Governor Winthrop, pru- dent man that he was, sent a ship in 1633 purposely to THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 11 verify this pleasant view from the captain's deck? The island was then in the possession of the Dutch, who had occupied the west end and probably had isolated settlers along the north and south shores. But the greater part of the island was a fair wilderness whose denizens were Indians and wild animals. King Charles I having issued to Lord Stirling a blanket grant of suf- ficient dimensions to cover a good portion of the conti- nent, the lord's agent, James Farratt, made compact with a colony of occupation, composed chiefly of Lynn people. They were to have eight miles square in any part of Long Island. The consideration to be rendered up to Lord Stirling was left to Governor Winthrop for adjudi- cation, and this is worth reading in his own words. He found for the over lord in the sum of four bushels of Indian corn, "in consideration that the country was a wilderness and that the Indians pretended some claims to the land." The adventurous colonists landed at the head of Schont's Bay the 10th of May, 1640. They found posted there on a tree the arms of the Prince of Orange. They pulled it down. In derision they drew in its place "an unhandsome face." Sachem Penhawitz, from whom the Dutch had bought these lands, loyally hurried to the Dutch with the tidings. The Council of Amsterdam ordered Cornelius Van Tienhoven, secretary, to seize "the strollers and vagabonds." He proceeded to do this with the help of an undersheriff, a sergeant, and twenty- five soldiers. Arriving at Schont's Bay on the 15th, he found the invaders, numbering eight men, one woman and a baby, already had built one house and part of an- other. He asked them, Why have you pulled down their High Mightinesses Arms and put a fool's head in the stead? The colonists ducked under the reply that the man who had pulled down the escutcheon had gone over to Red Hill (New Haven) , and that an Indian had drawn the offensive substitute. Six of the party, including 12 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA Nathaniel and Philip Kirtland, were taken prisoners to Fort Amsterdam and held while diplomatic representa- tions in Latin passed between Gov. William Kieft, whom Washington Irving has humorously immortalized as William the Testy, and the governor of Massachusetts. Governor Winthrop set up that he would not maintain the colonists in an unjust action nor suffer them to be injured. The worthy Councilors of Amsterdam smoked that in their long clay pipes with the result that shortly they set the prisoners free on condition of leaving the territory never to come back. This the intimidated colonists did by going to the eastern end of the island and founding Southampton. A merry war was averted. The quaintly picturesque phraseology of colonial times arouses in us of later days a sense of pleasant humor, but in fact these colonizers, to borrow Maurice Hewlett's ex- pression, were engaged in "man's business." A KIRTLAND DESCENT. THE FIRST LYNN IMMIGRANTS. Herein is included the first complete chronicle of the earliest Kirtland family in America, who settled at Lynn, Mass., as follows: PHILIP 1 KIRTLAND, of Lynn, Mass. Strangely, there are but two positive records known of the head of the Kirtland family which settled first in New England. These are as witness to his brother John's will in Tickford, England, 1616, and as sharing in the division of lands in Lynn, Mass., 1638, when Philip Kirtland senior and Philip Kirtland junior were each allotted ten acres. There are no discovered records of his coming to this country, of any acts or activities, or of his death. All his children were born in England, perhaps his wife died there. He might have come over either before or after his sons Nathaniel and Philip, who are known to have settled in Lynn in 1635. I am inclined to think that his young and adventurous sons preceded him and his eldest son John, and perhaps his daughter Susannah and her husband, John Wastall. The local his- torians, Lewis and Newhall, state in one place that Philip Kirtland and Edmund Bridges were the first shoemakers of Lynn in 1635, and in another that Philip Kirtland was the first shoemaker. It was Newhall, I believe, who dis- covered that Bridges was a horseshoer. Their history assumes this Philip to be the father, whereas no record shows that he was here before 1638, although he might have been. This question may never be determined positively, as the records of Lynn before 1650 were de- stroyed in a riot. Philip senior might have been rising 70 years of age at this time, since his son John was born 14 THE KIRT LANDS OF AMERICA in 1605. In the absence of certain evidence I assume that he was so far advanced in years as to be out of the stirring activities of pioneer life, that he did not live long after settling in Lynn, and therefor that the few scattering records of Philip Kirtland relate to the son. Philip 1 Kirtland had three sons and one daughter, Nathaniel, Philip, John, Susannah. There is no record of his wife. The history of these children follows: John 2 , the will-o-wisp of the genealogists. Sav- age saw him but once, at Newtown, 1665. Chap- man saw him, but did not recognize him, when he cites that his sister Susannah Wastall of Saybrook alludes to her nephew, John 3 , as brother. Sanborn saw him in the will of his Uncle John of Tickford, England, the brother of Philip 1 , and again when he discovers him to be the brother of Susannah Wastall ; but he erred in surmising that John 2 made his resi- dence at Saybrook, where he could only have ended his days. Yet he has some interesting history and his life is very well accounted for. He lived at Lynn from 1641, when he had a suit in court at Salem against William Edwards, until 1654, when he was fined for calling Edward Richards "a rogue and a base rogue." He was constable in 1652. The town of Easthampton, L. I., granted him, April 9, 1651, a "lott if hee comes betwene this & the last of July next eiisveing," which would show that the townsmen considered him a desirable citizen. I judge he did not go to Easthampton then. But he appears on the town records in 1657, and January 25, 1658, it is set down there that "John Barker and John Cirtland pit have entered an accon of Trespas on the case against Thomas Squier Deft for vtteringe of slanderous wordes that intrenched on our lives and lively hoods." John Barker must have been rarely gifted with power of words. John 2 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 15 bought land from Samuel Parsons March 14, 1659. September, 1661, because he had refused to join in the purchase of commons at Masutauquit (Montauk), he was debarred from profiting therein. An instru- ment of curious interest under date of September 11, 1665, is recorded with careful formality as fol- lows: "Bee it known to all men by these presents that I John Kirtland Inhabytant of Easthampton on Long Island : doe make over all my right & interest I had in my servant Hopewell: Indyan: whom I bought of his guardyans being an orphan and one yeare ould to Mr. Thomas James of Easthampton Myn- ester to him his heires & assigns for the full terme of Nyneteene yeares, for a Considerable vallue viz fifteene pounds in good pay ; the said Hopewell being of the age six yeares this present tyme; his tyme coming forth at the age of 25 yeares according to the date hereof: the said Thos: James engageing himselfe heires or assignes for the good usage of this his apprentice & if hee continue with him to the aforesaid age or his heires or assignes the said Thos : doth bynd himselfe to give the said Hope- well ten pound in Currant pay & a suite of Cloathes, In witness of the premyse I set to my hand & Seale. John Kirtland Seale Hopewell H his mark John M Mulford his mark signed December: 6th Arthur Howell in the yeare 1675 in presence of me Tho: Talmage The above written is a true Coppy extracted out of the original by me "Thomas Tallmage Recorder." 16 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA In March, 1666, John 2 leased land conditionally for a term of years, in November was granted four acres of land, and April 4, 1671, sold addition land. Beyond this year the Easthampton records are silent as to John 2 . Undoubtedly Saybrook was the scene of his later years. Only he could have been the Goodman Kirtland whom the townsmen engaged in December, 1681, for sweeping the meeting house and keeping school for the ensuing year. At the same time his brother-in-law, Mr. John Wastall, was engaged for the same term for "beating of the drum" upon the Sabbath day and town meeting days. The story of his life closes in 1683, when his sister, Susannah Wastall, gave him a small house and lot in Saybrook. She called him her childless brother John. His deposition in the probate of his brother Philip's noncupative will in Salem in 1657 does not necessarily mean that he was personally present, though he may have been. This deposition fixes the year of his birth as 1605. Philip 2 came over with his brother Nathaniel 2 on the Hopewell and settled in Lynn in 1635, where he was the first shoemaker, or cordwainer as the makers of ladies shoes of silk and cordovan leather were then styled. He was granted land in 1638, and was plaintiff in a trespass suit in 1639. In 1640 he joined the Lynn colonists who went to Long Island and was one of the original founders of Southamp- ton. He returned to Massachusetts in 1641. The records of the Quarterly Court at Salem have a number of references to him from 1645 to 1655. He was grandj uryman each year from 1649 to 1653. He bought the house and lands of Nathaniel Tyler in 1652. Shortly afterward this worthy, when about to embark on the ship New England Merchant, made a will whose preamble was a portent of Philip's fate, "because our lives are fickle and mortall, and THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 17 dangers at sea are many." In the oral probate of Philip's will in 1659 William Harcher testified that "before going to sea I oft heard Philip oftentimes say" — from which I infer that Philip 2 had joined the host who had gone down to sea for the last time. This event happened before July 13, 1657, for on that date his brother John 2 made deposition in the pro- bate proceedings. Mayhap he was lost the year be- fore. There was a great earthquake in this region then which toppled down "hundreds of thousands of trees" and the ocean "rose twenty feet up and down." So ends his history. But he was the fore- runner of the long procession of workers that made Lynn famous in the world for its manufacture of shoes. His widow Alice, surname unknown, married Evan Thomas, a Welsh vintner who owned the Kings Arms tavern in Boston. His estate of £350 was divided among his children, the house and farm lands in Lynn to go to his only son Ebenezer. The children of Philip 2 and Alice were Mary, b. June 8, 1640; Sarah, b. September 27, 1646; Susannah, b. May 8, 1651; Ebenezer, b. June 11, 1654; Hanna, b. June 12, 1654. Nathaniel 2 . Susannah 2 , date of birth and place of marriage unknown, was the wife of John Wastall, early of Wethersfield, Conn., who was deputy in 1643, bought land in 1647, was constable in 1651. Two years later he was at Saybrook as commissary sergeant of the garrison at the fort. He was licensed to keep an inn in 1663. His death came in 1683. He left the bulk of his estate, which Savage conservatively calls "good," to his wife's nephew, John 3 Kirtland, son of Nathaniel 2 of Lynn. Susannah died in 1684, having given a small house and lot in Saybrook to her "childless brother John 2 ." Savage surmises that Wastall might have been in New Hampshire 18 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA before settling in Wethersfield. Perhaps he and his wife and her father and brother John 2 came over together, following the younger sons. NATHANIEL 2 KIRTLAND. The registry at the Rolls Office, Chancery Lane, Lon- don, preserves the link which identifies and connects the Kirtlands of the Old World with the New: Primo Aprill 1635. In the Hopewell of London Mr. Wm. Bundocke vrs New England nath h : P Kyrtland 19 J of Sherin « ton in Buckinghamsher Nathaniel 2 was born in Olney, near Sherrington, Buckinghamshire, in 1616, as he and his brother Philip 2 testified in 1640 when brought before the august Coun- cilors of Amsterdam as "strollers and vagabonds." He settled with Philip 2 in Lynn, Mass., 1635, but did not participate with his father and brother in the allotment of lands in 1638. For "driving off" a neighbor's cow, he was defendant in trespass in 1639. In 1640 he was one of those adventurous colonists from Lynn who first es- tablished English occupation of Long Island, then nominally under Dutch dominion. With six others of the party of ten which first landed at Schont's Bay on May 10 of that year, he was taken prisoner to Fort Am- sterdam, examined before the Council of Amsterdam, and held while representations passed between the governor of New Amsterdam and the governor of Massachusetts. Discharged shortly the colonists went to the east end of Long Island and founded Southampton. Nathaniel 2 re- mained there some three years, returning to Lynn before 1644, where he spent his days. He was made freeman in 1647, and was trial juryman in 1647, 1649, 1651 and 1652. He was one of the Seven Prudential Men who administered the affairs of Lynn in 1678. He had THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 19 prospered in life, and enjoyed the esteem and con- fidence of his fellow townsmen. He was buried in Lynn December, 1686, aged 70 years. His will, dated August 17, 1685, and probated March 31, 1687, names sons Nathaniel, John and Philip, daughters Hannah and Mary, grandchildren of Lee and Collins names, and appoints his widow executrix. This will and that of his brother Philip 2 settle the uncertainties regarding the parentage of the children of the third generation. His wife's name was Parnell, but her family name has not been dis- covered, nor the record of marriage. The children of Nathaniel 2 and Parnell were as follows: Sarah, b. no record; m. and had ch. 1670, Ensign Thomas Lee of Lyme, Ct. Hanna, b. April 15, 1652; m. Feb. 20, 1679, Capt. William Pratt of Saybrook, Ct. Priscilla, b. no record; m. Sept. 25, 1673, Benjamin Collins. Nathaniel, b. no record; m. Jan. 20, 1675, Mary Rand of Lynn. He served in King Philip's war under Captain Manning. He it is who was one of the heroes of a practical joke which terminated in the Quarterly Court June 26, 1667. It quaintly reveals the peculiar temper of the times. William Craft was not good sport enough to take a joke, therefore Nathaniel 3 Kirtland, John Witt and Ephraim Hall were presented and fined "for pro- phaining the Lord's Day, By Going to William Craft's house, in time of public exercise, (they both being at meeting), and Drinkeing of his sider, and Rosteing his apples, without eyther the consent or knowledge of him or his wife." He died in 1689, leaving estate of £292. His widow married April 24, 1690, Dr. John Henry Burch- sted of Lynn, a German physician from Silesia. The children of Nathaniel 3 and Mary Rand were Nathaniel, b. May 3, 1676; Mary, b. Feb. 1, 1679; 20 THE KIRT LANDS OF AMERICA Priscilla, b. April 9, 1683 ; Elizabeth, b. June 22, 1685 ; John, b.

He was among those soldiers who were granted lands in 1688 in the Nipmugg country (Worcester county) . He was buried in Lynn, June 28, 1688. The Lynn Vital Statistics give no children. Ann, b.

Note — These records leave of Nathaniel 3 de- scendant males, Nathaniel 4 and John 4 ; of Philip 3 possible males, since he was married nine years with no children recorded in Lynn; and of Philip 2 his only son Ebenezer 3 , all whom possibly could have born the name to posterity. But if they did, history is silent. LIEUT. JOHN 3 KIRTLAND, of Saybrook. Of all the males of four generations Lieut. John 3 Kirt- land (Nath 2 Philip 1 ) of Saybrook is the one from whom the Kirtlands and Kirklands of America are descended. He must have been born with a silver spoon, notwith- standing it was at a time when pewter was in good re- pute. This is the best suggestion for the fable of the origin of the family in Silver Street, London, that I have found. At the age of thirteen he was adopted by his rich uncle, John Wastall of Saybrook. On coming of age he THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 21 inherited an estate of £500, and straightway married Lydia, the daughter of one of the leading men of the Colony of Connecticut, Lieut. William Pratt of Saybrook, who was rich in lands which he had of the remark- able Indian Chief Uncas. A sort of double hostage at about the same time was the marriage of his sister Ha'nna to a brother of his wife, Capt. William Pratt, who in- herited much lands and became prominent in the affairs of his world. The document which assured John's afflu- ence at the outset of life is a unique little human comedy, and a rare legal instrument. When the parties had got the matter settled, it wasn't. A reservation sprang up, was set down, argued again, and the original intent again declared, only to give rise to another conflict of friendly forces, for they were all bent on a generous act. One can see Nathaniel sitting fast for the fullest profit of his son, whom he was giving up for his better good in life. Was it Uncle John, from force of the natural canny habit that had accumulated the comfortable fortune which he was signing away, contending for a small reservation? Or did Aunt Susannah, with true feminine sentiment for childless brother John concealed in the back of her head, introduce the bone of contention? At all events, it came out well for Lieutenant John 3 . The instrument is recorded in the Saybrook town records as follows : "July 15, 1672. Then was This agreement made be- tween Mr. John Wastall of Say Brook in The Collony of Connecticut and Mr. Nathanael Cortland of Linn in The Colony of the Massachusetts, to say That the said Na- thanael Cortland doth resign up his son John Cortland to the dispose the said Wastall, That is to say the said Wastall doth promise to take the said John as his own to bring up under good education, in the nurture and ad- monition of the Lord, and to do his best endeavor to en- struct him in all things pertaining to life and godliness, as also at the decease of the said Wastall, that then the said John Cortland shall suksead in the estate of said 22 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA Wastall, at his own proper age, provided that the said Wastall have always liberty to give and grant legases to other of his kindred or such as shall deserve the same, and that this is the meaning of the agreement, The parties aforesaid have put to their hands, That is to say, That after the death of the aforesaid John Wastall, and Susan- nah his wife, said John Cortland, as their ayre and suk- sessor as above said, That this is according to the tenor of what is above written and unto This we do both inter- changeably set our hands this 15th day of July, 1672. In the presence of [Robert Chapman The mark of W Witnesses <| John Wastall f John Davis Nathaniel Kirtland "Ordered to be recorded in Say Brook Records [Vol. 1, p. 78]." Lieut. John 3 Kirtland became prominent in local af- fairs, and was appointed lieutenant commanding the fort at Saybrook in 1702 and 1708. He died January 20, 1716. The children of Lieut.

The Wallingford and Woodbury, Conn., and Poland, Ohio, Kirtlands are descended from Constant 5 , son of this John 4 . Lieut.

Jan. 19, 1699 ; m. Martha Whittlesey. Rev. Daniel, b. June 17, 1701; m. Mary Perkins, probably a daughter of Jabez Perkins and Hannah Lothrop. He was graduated from Yale 1720, and was the first pastor of the Third church at Newent, Norwich, 1721. He had sons Daniel, John, Jabez, Samuel and seven daughters. One of the sons was the Rev. Samuel Kirkland, the Indian missionary and founder of Hamilton College. His son, John Thornton Kirtland, doctor of divinity and distin- guished president of Harvard 1810 to 1828, first changed the family name from Kirtland to Kirk- land, which led either to the adoption by or appli- cation to his father, the Reverend Samuel, who was born Kirtland, and is so named in Connecti- cut Colony and State Records up to 1777. The Kirklands of this country are descended from this line of Kirtlands. They hail from Norwich, Conn., and Oneida county, N. Y. Parnell, b. Oct. 16, 1794 ; m. John Tully, about whom there is much interesting history. It will be seen that Lieut. John 3 Kirtland, like his father Nathaniel 2 , did his ample duty to his generation by putting forth a large family of children who, by per- sonal quality and alliance with the best life about them, established the Kirtlands as one of the First Families of Connecticut. From the town records in 1723, it appears that his sons John 4 , Nathaniel 4 , and Philip 4 were joint proprie- tors of nearly the entire plain in which the village of Derby, Conn., is located, and that their lands extended to the Connecticut River. 24 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA SAMUEL 4 KIRTLAND. That he was a substantial man who held a position of esteem among his townsmen is shown by the punctil- ious affix of the quality title "Mr." to his name in the town records. Anotfher tribute was his selection in 1747-48 on a committee to propose a "Scheam" for the seating of the church. This was a grave business, one only to be intrusted to men of rank and character, for it involved the relative social standing of every member of the church. Such was a general church custom in colonial times. Another tribute was his marriage to Martha Whittlesey, March 31, 1731, for her father, Lieut. John Whittlesey, was of high standing in the colony, was many terms deputy representative to the General Assembly, was freeman, townsman, lieutenant, general merchant, and capitalist. Samuel 4 did not enter public life, and his history is confined to his home town of Saybrook. He died in February, 1760, and Martha died in August, 1759. Their children were Deacon Samuel, b. Jan. 10, 1732; m. May 7, 1755, Thankful Bushnell; Nov. 1, 1786, Mehitabel Lord; May 1, 1804, Hepsibah Bushnell. Martha, b. Nov. 26, 1733. Martin, b. Mar. 31, 1735. Ambrose, b. Jan. 27, 1737.

An active, courageous man of aggressive qualities, with natural talent and bent for military life, is the por- trait projected by the records relating to this Revolu- tionary soldier. He served in the French and Indian War on the second call for troops for 'the invasion of Canada in 1755. (History of Middlesex County.) A picturesquely worded complaint in the town records, informing against "one John Buckle of Weathasfield" who "did weigh an- 1519392 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 25 chor and come to sail" within two miles of the meeting house in Saybrook, "when public worship was main- tained," shows him to have been "Tything Man" in 1761. Such officer was annually elected by the town as a gen- eral moral policeman to preserve order at divine service, enforce attendance, and maintain general public godli- ness. Captain Martin married March 16, 1758, Sarah Meigs, who was born January 1, 1735, and was a daughter of Capt. Josiah Meigs, also known as Deacon Meigs, of East Guilford, Conn., son of Capt. Janna Meigs, first magis- trate of East Guilford and several terms representative in the General Assembly. Beyond him Sarah Meigs' pedi- gree ascends through Deacon John, John of Killings- worth, to Vincent Meigs of Weymouth, Mass., and Kill- ingsworth, the first of the line. The latter was a man of strong personality and a man of letters. Sarah Meigs was first cousin to the famous Revolutionary hero, Lieut. Return Jonathan Meigs (afterwards colonel), a popular hero of the Revolution who staged one of the most not- able exploits of the war. He received the formal thanks of the Continental Congress, together with a sword. Un- der General Washington's direct orders, with 170 men in his command, he attacked the British rendezvous at Sag Harbor, L. I., captured quantities of stores and ammuni- tion, destroyed vessels, and lost but one man. Captain Kirtland's Revolutionary history is collated from military records for the first time in the application of his descendant, Mr. George Darius Kirtland of Syra- cuse, N. Y., for membership in the Empire State Society, Sons of the American Revolution, to which he was ad- mitted at the Congress of the National Society in May, 1914. I can do no better than to give this record in full, as follows: In official records the Revolutionary service of Capt. Martin Kirtland of Saybrook, Conn., begins in response to the First Call for troops in 1775 as Second Lieutenant 26 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA Sixth Company, Capt. John Ely, of the Ninth Regt., Col. Samuel Parsons, raised by Connecticut in April and May, and stationed at New London; ordered by Governor's Council June 1 to Boston Camps; there posted at Rox- bury in Gen. Spencer's Brigade till end of service in De- cember. (Connecticut Men in Rev., p. 77.) He re-en- tered service in February, 1776, as First Lieutenant, Capt. Ely's Company, for the defense of Mamacock, after- ward Fort Trumbull, and in July, on Capt. Ely's promo- tion, was appointed Captain in his place. (Col. Rec. Conn., Vol XV, pp. 245, 463.) In December the General Assembly appointed him First Lieutenant in Capt. Na- thaniel SaltonstalPs Artillery Company, to be stationed at New London under command of Maj. Jonathan Wells. (Rec. State Conn., p. 118.) A payroll dated February 28, 1777, shows his service as Captain in Col. Erastus Wolcott's Regiment at New London. (Conn. Men in Rev. p. 613.) Previous to this, February 14, he had been appointed Captain in the Sixth Regiment, Continental Line, Col. Wm. Douglas. (Rec. State Conn., Vol. I, p. 174.) This military service at New London, Mamacock, Fort Trumbull, consisted of building fortifications; re- pelling landing attacks from the British fleet, which was a constant menace to this region throughout the war; and the frequent and no less onerous raids of marauders from Long Island. (Hist. New London, F. M. Caulkin, pp. 517-21.) Captain Kirtland's service continues in the summer of 1777 with the Sixth Regiment at Peekskill, where it was encamped, but frequently detached on ex- peditions or outpost duty on the lines above King's Bridge; in service on the Hudson, August to October, in Parson's Brigade under Gen. Putnam ; engaged in all the maneuvers consequent upon the movement against Fort Montgomery; wintered 1777-78 at West Point, and as- sisted in construction of permanent fortifications, Meigs' Redoubt, and redoubts on east side of Hudson river op- posite; encamped during summer 1778 with the main THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 27 army under Gen. Washington at White Plains. Capt. Kirtland's retirement follows Nov. 15, 1778, by rear- rangement of officers. (Conn. Men in Rev., pp. 205-206.) A bill to the United States from the State of Connecti- cut, "for sundry expenditures in bounties, extra allow- ances, wages, etc. of troops from said state who served with the main army in New York and places adjacent," contains an item of service for Capt. M. Kirtland of date September 13, 1787. (Conn. Hist. & Gen. Coll., Vol. VIII, p. 227.) The records of the Pension Bureau at Washington, show that Captain Kirtland was commissioned captain in the Sixth Regiment, Connecticut Continental Line, un- der command of Col. Return Jonathan Meigs, who suc- ceeded Colonel Douglass, and that he continued in the service until 1781, when he became a Supernumerary Officer. The descendants of Captain Martin and Sarah Meigs are entitled to soldierly instincts ; and we do find Martin Kirtland, Jr., the only son old enough, playing his youth- ful part bravely as corporal at the age of eighteen. The children of Captain Martin Kirtland and Sarah Meigs were Martin, b. Mar. 29, 1759 ; m. Nov. 30, 1780, Eunice Bushnell. He was allowed a pension in 1818 for Revolutionary services. The papers in the case show a second marriage, for reference is made to his wife Betsey, aged 54, and to Betsey Hunger- ford, aged 12, a daughter of his wife by a previous marriage. He lived at Vernon, Oneida County, N. Y. In 1823 he and his brother Charles, both living in Oneida County, N. Y., were allowed 300 acres of bounty land on account of their father's services in the Revolution. Sarah, b. Feb. 19, 1761 ; m. Capt. William Lynde. 28 THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA Charles, b.

The Pratt genealogy records the name Eleazer, but the Bolles genealogy and the family records give it Elisur. Shortly after his marriage with Lydia Bolles in 1786, Elisur left Saybrook, and his subsequent life is identified with Granville, N. Y., where he became a substantial man in the town. He died November 1, 1838. The genera- tions of his son Harvey, and grandson, William Harvey, lived in Utica, N. Y., intermarrying with the Mabies of Putnam County, N. Y., Morgans of England, and the Leach family of Oneida County, N. Y. By his three wives he had these children : Meigs, b. Elisur, b. Dec. 20, 1796. Clarinda, b. Jan. 30, 1799. Harvey, b.

Matthews in New York Gen, and Biog. Record, pp 100-102, Vol. 38, 1907.] Pieter Casparzen Van Naerden, sometimes recorded as Pieter Casparsen, was in New Amsterdam in 1647. He is supposed to have been the son of Caspar Mabille, who is recorded as Sergeant Caspar, and who was a witness of the child Joris Homes (George Holmes) on Nov. 6, 1650. He also brought suit against Jan Peek (after whom Peekskill was named). It is noteworthy that the suit was brought in English and he was ordered by the Court to translate it into Dutch, thus proving that he was not a Dutchman. He has been supposed to be iden- tical with the Huguenot Pierre Gasper or Caspar, who in 1621 signed at Leyden the Walloon petition. The Mabies of Putnam County, direct descendants of Pieter Casparzen Van Naerden, have a tradition that "their ancestor served on a cruiser on the coast of Ameri- ca which took a Spanish prize near New York." In 1633 the West India Co.'s ship, Soutberg, which brought Direc- tor General Van Twiller, Govert Lockerman and others to this country, captured a Spanish caravel, the St. Mar- tin, bringing it safely to New Amsterdam. It was prob- ably the Soutberg on which Sergeant Caspar came here. There seems no doubt that they were of French or- igin and that their name was Mabille, Pieter Casparzen Van Naerden being the name given him by the Dutch, and both Dutch and English converted the name Mabille in Mabie. His sons called themselves Mabie. His daugh- ter Metje is entered on both Dutch and French Church Records as Meby and Maybie. THE KIRTLANDS OF AMERICA 31 Of the sons of Pieter Casparzen, Jan Pietersen Mabie was the progenitor of all of that name in Schenectady and vicinity. His house is still standing in good condi- tion in the Mohawk Valley, and is the oldest house there. He bought land in Schenectady before 1690. He was surveyor, and we find, page 425 Eng. Col. Mss., 1 Jan., 1715, that "Fees on John Peter Mabie's warrant of sur- vey" were paid. Caspar 2 Pieterse Mabie settled in Orange County, and from him descend all the Mabies and Mabys of Orange and Rockland Counties. "The '76 House" at Tappan, where Andre was a prisoner, was owned by his grandson, Caspar Mabie. Hamilton Wright Mabie, so well known in the literary world, is Caspar's direct descendant. Pieter Casparzen married about 1651, Aechtje Jans, widow of Abraham Williamzen of Amsterdam. At her first marriage, 27 April, 1647, she is called Aechtje Jans Van Naerden, showing that she and Pieter Casparzen were from the same place in Holland — that they were friends is shown by his having been a witness, 10 April, 1650, at baptism of her son Abraham Williamzen, Jr. The children of Pieter Casparzen and Aechtje Jans were: Marritje, bap. 12 Sept., 1652; m. 8 April, 1671, Jan Peters Bant.

There are still Mabilles in France, well known fami- lies, several coats of arms are to be found, and undoubt- edly the Mabies are of these Mabille families. COQUILLET AND GATES TRADITIONS. According to the Mabie family traditions carefully stated by Joshua Mabie of Patterson, N. Y., in 1848, the father of Sylvie Coquillet was a Huguenot who fled from Catholic persecution in France, leaving a large estate to be confiscated but bringing considerable money with him to New Rochelle, where he settled. Abraham 3 Mabie (Casper 2 Pieterse Pieter 1 Casparzen) and Sylvie Coquillet had a son Abraham 4 who married Sarah, daugh- ter of Samuel Gates, who "came from England to Boston and removed to Haddam, Conn., thence to Pomf ret, thence to Ridgefield, thence to Carmel in Dutchess County, now Putnam County, and settled on a farm formerly owned by Amos Belding." He had two sons, Stephen, who died in the French and Indian war, and Daniel, who died in the Revolutionary war. Possibly this Samuel Gates may be the Samuel 3 , son of Simon 2 , son of Stephen 1 Gates, who came from Hingham, England, to Hingham, Mass., in 1638, with a pedigree running back to the 13th century and including two lords. The Stephen Gates genealogy says this Samuel 3 , born August 11, 1685, set- tled somewhere in Connecticut, "but further record has not come to hand." The Baptist Burying Ground at Carmel contains the graves of Abraham 4 Mabie, d. Aug. 7, 1817, and Sarah, his wife, d. Aug. 12, 1816. Abra- ham 4 had a son Solomon 5 , who had a daughter Jerusha 6 , born April 3, 1803, d. July 26, 1873. She married Sep- tember 15, 1824, Harvey 7 Kirtland, born November 1, 1801, d. May 1, 1874.
