Sixteen years ago I "began an investigation into the 
origin and history of my family. Having no other source 
from which I might derive the information so needful in a 
work of this character,! began with my own immediate fam- 
ily living in the far west and the traditions which the 
different mem'bers furnished me as to the location of the 
early members and their families when our Country was first 
settled. I, accordingly, took up those traditions and sift- 
ed each one to its utmost, many of which furnished valuble 
clues from which much benefit was derived,v;hile others 
proved as "Castles in Spain." Prom the very outset my 
highest exjjectations promised results far beyond any of 
my wildest dreams or fondest hopes. V/hile discouragements 
were few and successes many and unexpected, much that would 
now be highly valuble and much more appreciated, must for- 
ever remain unwritten. Wh.y this must needs be, may be ex- 
plained in the destruction of many valuble Records, in War, 
by f ire,rotteing with age, loss in transit ;and most of all, 
the things of interest that were never recorded. Not being 
entirely satisfied with the results so far attained,! sub- 
mit the work to others scrutiny, with the hope that any no- 
ticeable errors, discrepencies or omissions will be over- 
locked or corrected, as the case may be, - 

New York City, Cortez Nelson. 

12 July 1906.

The Nelsons in England, 
Burk's Commoners of England & Ireland. 

The Family of Nelson appears to have been of very- 
ancient existence in the County of Lancashire, Their Seat 
at Maudsley, where they held lands "by Military service, is now 
in possession of the Riddles of Northumberland, to whom it 
came by female descento Some notice of them can he found 
in the pedigree of Earl Nelson, in Sir Richard Hoar's History 
of South- V/ilts, under the Head of the Parish of Downtono There 
is little doubt that the ancestry of V^illiam Nelson, living 

tempore Elizabeth, and Edward VI, came out of Lancashire, in the 

r of 
suit of Sir James Stanley, ^"arden of Manchester .youngest son of 

Thomas Stanley, Pirst Earl of Derby; which Dr. James Stanley was 
elected First Bishop of Ely, 23d Henry VII, and settled in Nor- 
folk, v;here the See of Ely had considerable property. 

The Arms of the Nelsons of Maudsley were worn by the 
Norfolk Nelsons, as may be seen by Old Books and Papers in the 
collection that formerly belonged to the Rev, Edmund Nelson, of 
Burnhara-Thorpe. ( See under heading of Viscount Nelson.) 

The Family of Nelson, originally of the County of 
Lancashire, settled in Berkshire temp ore Elizabeth. 

Richard Nelson of Maudsley, in Lancashire, was living 
there in the time and durin-^ fhe Reign of Edward III. In 1377, 
he gave and confirmed to Warine de Golborn and Alice his wife, 
daughter of the said Richard, certain Lands in Maudsley, with 
the remainder in default of issue to George Nelson, son of Rob- 
ert Nelson, and his lawful heirs. This deed is dated 1st Rich- 
ard II and sealed with the Arms, "A cross over a bendlet" ,1405,

J'rances-Eerbert(Visco\intees)Nelson(176l-lS31) ,was bapb 
tized in May 1761, was the daughter of William Wooa\vard(died 18 
Feb, 1779) .Senior Judge of the Island Of Nevis in the West Indie? 
and by her mother , niece of John Richardson Herbert .president of 
the Council of Nevis, On the 28 June 1779, she was married to 
Josiah Nesbet.M.D. ,who shortly afterwards became deranged, and 
died within Eighteen months, leaving her v/ith an infant son de- 
pendent on her uncle, ^^ile living with him she became ac- 
quainted with Nelson, then the young Captain of the Boreas, and m 
was married to him at Nevis 12 March 1787. The irregularly 
kept Register at Nevis gives the date 11 March, but in a letter 
to her husband, on the 11 Ma.rch 1797 , Mrs, Nelson wrote, "Tomorrow 
is our v^edding day and it gives me a dear husband, and my child 
the best of fathers." 

When the Boreas was paid off , Mrs. Nelson lived with 
her husband at Bur nham- Thorpe till Feb. 1793, and during his ab- 
sence(f irst) in the Mediterranean, corresponded on the most af- 
fectiona,te terms. V-Qien he returned home after losing his arm 
at Teneriffe,she tenderli'^ nursed him during the months of pain 
that followed, and through 17 98 Nelson's letters to his wife ap- 
pear as affectionate as ever. Lady Nelson, however , seems to 
been early disquieted by rumours which reached her from Italy; 
and on the 7th of December, Davidson wrote to her husband, "your 
valuble better-half is in good health, but very uneasy and anx- 
ious, which is not to be wondered at, — she bids me say 

that unless you return home ina few months, she will join the 

Standard at Naples. Excuse a woman's tender feelings, they 

are too acute to be expressed." 

Any reports of v/rong-doing which she may have receiv- 
ed at that time, were certainly exaggerated; though it may be

readily understood, that a lady of delicate tastes, disapproved 
of her hushand's extreme intimacy v/ith a woinan of Lady Hamil-

to write to her hushand on terms of friendship, as Sir William 

Hamilton did not ohject to his intimacy v/ith Lady Hamilton, Lady 

) ■, .. . - ... 

j_Nelson had no reason to do so; and he was painfully surprized, 
(.on arriving in London in 1800, to find that his wife received 
him with coldness and disapproval. ^ 

We know froin ITelson's letter to Davidson(23d April 
1801) that the weeks v;hich followed were rendered miserahle by 
frequent altercations ; and, though the oft quoted statement of 
Mr.Hazelvfood,has heen held to prove that the quarrel was a sud- 
.den outburst of anger on the part of Lady Nelson, goaded past 
V endurance by the iterated reference to "Dear Lady Hamilton", 
.such a statement made 46 years after the date, by a very good 
man, has but little value jwhen it implies a contreidiction of 
Nelson's letter v^ritten at the time. On the other hand,Har- 
^rison asserted that there were many differences , between the hus- 
band and wife, respecting Nelson's nieces and nephews; that Nel- 
son loved the companionship and prattle of children, v;hich an- 
noyed his wife; that they two quarrelled, about Lady Nelson's 
son,Josiah Nisbet,at this time a Captain in the Navy, whom his 
mother v/ished to be considered as her husband's heir;and that 
after one of these domestic broils, Nelson wandered all night 
through the streets of London, in a state of absolute despair 
and destraction. It is well established that Bisbet was rude, 
quarrelsome and intemperate; that he had much annoyed his Step- 
father while in command of the Thalia, and that when that ship 
was paid off, he v;as never employed again. Harrison's story is 
not thus improbable, in itself, and is partly confirmed by Nel-

fhe source from which it comes is tainted, and there is no di-

Even admitting serious differences on the suhject of 
Nisbet and the children, thtre can he no reasonable doubt that 
Lady Hamilton was the actual cause of the separationjand it is

John Nelson( 1660-1734) ,Few England Statesman, "born in 
1660, son of Williajn Nelson, appears to have gone to New England 
about 1660, Eis father's iincle,Sir Thomas Temple , 'became, by pur- 
chase, one of the proprietors of Nova Scotia, after its conquest 
by England in 1654, and after the restoration he was appointed 
governor of that dependency. This brought Nelson into commu- 
nication with the French settlers, and in 1687 he gave a letter 
of Introduction to Villebon the governor of Nova Scotia, then 
restored to the French, Y'hen^Willebonf was about to pass through 
Boston on his way to Nev; York, o;--i->^ qre- 

Nelson was a Churchman, and as in the case of Temple, 
there were barriers of taites and character v^hich separated 
him from his Puritan Contemporaries in Boston, He is describ- 
ed by a New England historian as "of a free, gay temper." But 
in New England as in the mother country, the arbitrary rule of ^ 
the Romanist Sovereign united, for a v/hile at least, men of dif- 
ferent Creeds and Views in common resistance. Nelson, too , had 
connected him.self by marriage v/ith a family possessing much 
political influence in Massachusetts, His wife v;as a daughter 
of William Tailer,who became Lieutenant-governor of Massachu- 
setts in 1711. Tailer's wife was a daughter of Israel Stough- 
ton,a rjan of influence among the first generation of New Eng- 
land settlers. Her brother , William Stoughton,was anient for the 
Colony in England, in 1676, and was at a later date, Lieutenant- 
governor of the Colony, Thus, though Nelson was excluded from 
political life in the Colony, he was brought into direct contact 
with many of those who controlled it. In the crisis brought^" 
about by Sir Edmund Andros,the leaders of the popular party 
were glad of the assistance of any public spirited man. Accord-

ingly,when in April 1689 the news of the Revolution in England 
reached Boston, Nelson was among those v;ho signed a document 
addressed to the Governor .requiring him to resign his office 
and surrender the Jort in the town and the Castle in the har-'^ 
hour. Andros took no notice of tloe summons. By this time the 
Boston insurgents were supported by a large "body of Militia 
collected from the country around. Nelson was placed in com- 
mand of the party, and was sent to demand the surrender of the 
Fort, He surrounded the Tort, got possession of an out-¥.^ork:, ' 
and then threatened the Port with a cannonade, Addros there- 
upon surrendered, and Nelson took command of the Fort, With 
the establishment of a Provisional Government Nelson disappears 
from the scene of action. But, though his opinions and charac- 
ter may have excluded him from political life at Boston, a place 
v/as found for him, in the service of the Colony, for which he was 
fitted by his earlier associations. In 1690 a force from New 
England, under the comm.and of Sir William Phipps, conquered Nova 
Scotia, and in 1691 the nev/ Charter of Ilassachusetts formaily 
incorporated it with the Colony, Nelson was appointed to act 
as Commander-in-Chief of the ''assachusetts forces in Acadia, 
Before he could reach his Province he was captured by a French- 
man of War, and Acadia was reoccupied b.v a French lalitary Force, 

h Nelson's captor was his old friend Villebon,who of- 
fered him courteous treatment. He was kept for a while at 
Quebec in honourable captivity. There he used his opportuni- 
ties to study the designs of the French, and to give information 
of them and their movements to his friends in Nev; England. In 

.the Autumn of 169S he bribed two Frenchmen to carry a letter -- 
to Boston, addressed, as it would seem, to the general Court there.

It told of a French design for an attack on Boston "by Sea, and 

•"rjr' a m. ■both 

also of the attempt which he was making to detach the Indians, 

whose language he could speak, from the French, Nelson's mes- 
sengers succeeded in delivering the letter, "but their proceeding 

vc-. in ' 

was either discovered or suspected, and they were arrested and 

shot, Nelson expected to share their fate;his life, however, was 
spared and he was sent to France, where he v;as confined in the 
Bastile, Nevertheless, while on his voyage he succeeded in warn- 
ing the authorities at Boston that a French fleet was ahout to 
attack the v/hole line of English Colonies along the Atlantic 
sea-hoard. In 1698 he contrived to send to England a Keraorial 

to he laid hefore the Lords of trade and plantations. In this 

he showed the danger of allowing the French^claira,as they would 

surelj' seek to do, a houndary which would give them control of- 
the Kennehec, This, he pointed out, would furnish them with abun- 
dant supply of ship- timber, and would also enable them to detach 
from the English a large and valuble body of English allies. 

It is noteworthy that here, as elsewhere throughout 
his career, Nelson says nothing of his own sufferings, and makes 
no petition for deliverance or redress. He had, indeed, before 
shown a singularly scrupulous temper. When the Peace of Rys- 
wick was ratified Nelson was in England on Patole. The King 
held that the Peace of itself terminated his captivity and did 
not v^ish him to leave England. He , however , insisted on return- 
ing;and, when, shortly after, he was released, he seems to have 
been visited with the King's displeasure for his disobedience. 

In 1705 certain public men in New England set on foot 
a discreditable intrigue to exclude Joseph Dudley from the gov- 
ernorship of Tiassachusetts,and to secure the post for Sir Charte 
Hobby, Dudley was not a man (ff high political character , and

New England had no reason to refjard him with respect or grati- 
tude. But he was a more reputable man, both in public and in 
private life, than his rival, and it is creditable to Nelson that 
his influence with the English government v/as exercised in fa- 
vour of Dudley. Nelson died in Massachusetts 4 Dec, 1734, 

The foregoing sketch of a great and good man might, 
unier less favourable circumstances, be sufficient to perpetu- 
ate his name. "But there is a Brochure In the possession of 
Dr .Richard Henry Derby, of New York, containing the Funeral ser- 
mon, preached by the Rev. Timothy Cutler ,D.D. , over the remains 
of the above John Nelson and his wife. The quaintness of the 
Discourse can be better judged after reading than any attempt 
at description here. It was decided to give the Two Title pa- 
ges and the Sermon as printed in 1734. The spelling, capital- 
ization and punctuation are the same as in the original, 

1st Title.

Occasioned by the DEATH of

THE Printing of this Sermon is wholly owing to the 

iraportimity of the Relations of the Deceased ;and is the fruit, 

(•'■> k , It- 'i 
neither of my Judgement, or Inclinations, 

Their Desires,! acknowledge, ought to go a great way 
with me, hut I cannot say so far: it is now in the Power of oth- 
ers to determine That, I neyer affected a Puhlic Appearance, 
much less ought I to he fond of it , in "behalf of a Composure, 

under many, great unusual .inevitable Interruptions ; one whereof 

er;t Sub.i i:'C t, q* vjhfither our ^:. 

was a head-Ache that altogether disabled me for a whole Day, 

However I must say, That ray Sermon was well meant ; and, up on Re- 

view, I can retract nothing in Doctrine or Fact, 


.But as to the deceased Gentleman's Character I beg 

leave to supply one Omission with XSM. what follows, viz. That 

nr !■■ 
he was always a profess 'd Member of the Church of England;Her 

Admirer, Friend and Advocate, in Times and Places the least Fav- 

ourable to Her, And this is the Uprignt Man, whose Religion is 

not Local or Occasional, v;ho goes not down with the Streara,but 

can in a good Cause, stem the Torrent of Prejudices and Censures, 

I know of no Church upon Earth that can better justify 
' or wp) 1ivt»jO" "I '«"» dv 

such Conduct, and I thank God, that Truth of this Mature is rath-' 

er brightened than clouded by Opposition: Thus Wisdom is justi- 

fied of her Children, 

a Sv 

And nov/ I present this Sermon to the Public, and to 

the Blessing of GOD. 

T. Cutler.

He Shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their 
beds, each one walking in his uprightness, ^ '■^-^ 

Things the nost frightful and impleasant in Themselves 
Kiay be sweet in their Consequences. Of this Nature is the pres- 
ent Subject , which is Death: whether o\ir ovra,or our Friends. But 
v/hen These have been long, and justly, by Vertue , Goodness and Ten- 
derness, entitled to our Love and Esteem, it is hard to govern 
ourselves rightly, and to soften the Thing by the happy Issue 
of it. For so weak:, carnal and selfish are our Minds, that they 
dwell too little on the bright, and too much on the dark side 
of the Dispensation: So that it is our Loss, and not their Gain, 
that affects us; not where they are gone, but whom they have left: 
not the Peace and Rest, and Security they have entered into, but 
the past Comforts, Pleasures and Assistances they have afforded 
us. And hereby we miss of those ad vantagesvts, instructive Uses 
to which Changes of this World are design 'd to lead us: we neith 
er become Wiser or Better ;Holy while we live, or happy when we dy 

The End of all is, to teach us what this World and what 
another is; and to mind both only in their places: the Former in 
a Subserviency to the Latter ; that , according to our Saviour's 
Express ion, when we fail, we may be received into everlasting 

This is the End of the Righteous, the Merciful and 
the Upright Man: of whom the Prophet complains , That he perish-

eth,and no man layettL it to Heart; that is, No Man maketh sucli 
Reflect ions, as are for the Reformation of the Living: they may 
look on it as a matter of Wonder, hut not as a motive to Repent- 
ance: to imitate them, and to meet them again, 

Here is enough to engage us to it. ^"Taen general Ca- 

lamities approach, God prepares them an Hiding-Place and Shel- 
ter; they dy,not in his Displeasure, hut his Love, The Death of 
the Righteous, tho' here called a Perishing, is truly a deliver- 
ance, and such Perosns are taken away from the Evil to come: 
this hrings them to Peace at the last into Rest and Joyous Ex- 
pectations, He shall enter into Peace: they shall rest in their 
beds, each one walking in his uprightness, 

A learned Writer, upon the Place/takes these words 
to he Prophetical of the "Death of King Josiah, nearly foregoing 
the Distresses and Calamities of the Jews hy the Eahylonians: 
and so the Prophetess Huldah foretold him. That He Should he 
gathered unto his Grave in Peace and his eyes should not see 
all the evil which God would bring on Jerusalem, And thus it 
happened to him, notwithstanding his violent Death by his Ene- 
mies: for the Public Calamities of the Jews were consequent „y 
upon his Death,^" "^^-p^ f- ■.j^jr'! ^^t- 

But allowing these words had an original View to Him, 
there is no reason to restrain them entirely to this Person; 
it being the happy lot and Portion of every good Death 
to enter into Peace: and so the Sence is extended in that Plu- 
ral Exi)ress ion, They Shall rest in their beds; and in that Dis- 
tributive one, as our Translation hath it, Each one walking in 
his uprightness, 

F And thus the Words imply ;Our Duty in this World, and 
our Happiness in the next; Here we walk in our uprightness,

hereafter we may enter into peace and rest: or the way to sweet- 
en Death, and make it the greatest Gain; even this last Enemy may 
give us Peace, it's most turhulent Assaults of us may lead us 
to Peace and Joy, All Sensative Nature shivers at the Approach 
of Death: Rational Nature with it's more lively Preceptions, 
hath a strange Aversion. The Anticipation of it damps all our 
present Joys, and makes all our Pursuits fee"ble;and when it 
comes in earnest, how piercing is it's Call! how hard to ohey 
itl This it is to hear the sight of that Par tit ion- Wall between 
us, and all our Views, our Hopes, our Entertainments, our Er lends 
and Children jhetween Us, and all our Advantages of doing, and re- 
ceiving Good, Now the Sences feel the most acute Pains, and the 
Heart is rent from the object of it's tenderest & most vehement 
Love: and withal, we look with Doubt and Amazement, at what is 
before us: The Enemies we may find, the Evils we may suffer, and 
the Incurableness of our Condition; especially, if v/e have not 
Revelation to enlighten us, or Conscience to befriend us. Then 
Eear delivers us over to an Almighty Displeasure, to the want 
of all Good, to endless and easeless Torments, and the most in- 
Vt'ard, sensible and insupportable Reflections, But here you may 
a^^e from the Text, That Death may be qualified: it may become 
easy, safe and joyful, 

I may therefore now consider: 

1, ^p-P-: Q,ualif ication for an happy Death, which you may 
infer from these words, Each one walking in his uprightness. 

2, Wherein it oloth consist, he shall enter into peace, 
they shall rest in their beds, iec,- 

1, Here is before us the Qualification for an hap- 
py Death, Which I infer from those words, each one walking in 
his uprightness, or each one that walketh in uprightness.

And Uprightness is the Bent of the whole Man, all his 
Powers, a.nd Faculties, and Strength, at all Timea and Occasions,,., 
toward everything that is good and right, respecting GOD, our 
Neighbours, and our Souls ,Heligion, or common Honesty and Vertue. 
When there is an exact and perfect Consent "between the Heart, 
the Tongue and the Hand; the inward Principle, and the outward 
Life and Conversation ;v/hen the I'fe.n is the same in his Closet, 
as in the Shop or -Exchange; strict to his Religion, fair in his 
Dealings; the same in all Corapanyjnot only good among the Sober 
and Serious, "but preserving his Vertue and recommending it, if 
not reproving Vice, among the Liher tines and Profane ;one vmom 
neither Good-nature nor Self-love doth ■betray;so that he is 
neither corrupted "by Flatteries, Solicitations, Kindnesses, Prom- 
ises or Threatenings,"by Friends or EneBiies,"by the Glare of Hon- 
our Sc Grandeur, the Sweetness of Pleasure or Prof it, by i^^ecessity, 
Conveniency,or Glory ;but, to all outward Considerations, prefers 
the Love ^d Fear of GOD, the Love of Man, and the Salvation of ^^ 
his own Soul. GOD is the supreme Object of his regards, his 
Maker , Preserver and Benefactor, his Lord and Judge ;and therefore 
Religion, the Natural or instituted way of acknowledge ing Him, 
will not be betray 'd in it's Doctrine, Discipline, Worship or 
Precepts: all his Enquiries, his Professions, his Behaviours , are 
here duly guided, and his Mistakes are not chosen, but the pompa»- 
sionable Effects of human Weakness: and thus he walks before 
GOD, as some render the latter Expression of the Text, Each one 
walking ."before Him. Llan is his Fellow-Creature, descended of 
the same Original, liable to the same Wants and Miseries, capable 
of the Same Happiness, redeemed by the same Saviour; whom he looks 
on with Benevolence, and behaves towards with Truth and Justice, 
Benignity and Compassion; sharing with all in the Sompass of his 
Knowledge, in their Infelicities and Sorrows; communicative of

his Help, Counsel, and Relief, as he is able, and they need it, ^.. 
Jor so he that walketh in his uprightness, in the Text, is call- 
ed the Merciful Man, in the verse foregoing. And how large or 
narrow soever this Pereon's Sphere of Life is, whether of the 
WSM. Man in his Commerce and Travel, ahroad,or of Sarah in her 
Tent, in their several Stations, the upright are innocent , useful 
and heneficient ;they live desired and dye lasientedl. 

For this is a Pereen that Perse ver,e th. ^.ij.. uprightness. 
It is not a single Act that v/ill denominate and recommend him: 
hut as uprightness is a Thing of invariable , eternal Excellency 
and Fitbess.we must be constant and steddy in it: the Integrity 
of the upright must guide himjand therein(in the Phrase of the 
Text)must he v,ralk till he comes to the End of his Journey, and 
the Reward of his Vertue. 

For (however it fares with the upright Man at present) 
the Course and Tendency of his v/ays is towards it. GOD is the 
highest Example of Uprightness; the only Source of It, and of oizr 
Happiness;to v/hose Love this leads 8.nd recommends us, preparing 
us for the fullest and most noble Emenations of it; of which we 
have the strongest Assurance from the Promises of the Mediation 
of Christ, atoning for those Imperfections that (alas I ) the most 
exact Life is tinged with. And so I pass to the Second Head, 

2, To consider v/herein the Happiness of this Up- 
right Person doth consist;being thus represented in the Words 
before us: He shall enter into peace; they shall rest in their 
beds. And I shall npw have a special Regard to that Happiness 
that commenceth immediately at Death. 

Here is a Negative Description implyed,and a Posi- 
tive one Explicit. It is implyed,

1, That it Ls more tnan a "bare Deliverance, or a Negative 

Happiness that an upright ferson enjoys immediately upon his 

Death: that he is not in a State of Insensibility, nor his Soul 

asleep till the Resurrection, "For so this would hardly "be of 

any Account ;hut a poor Invitation to Mortals, who take Pleasure 

in Life and Action. As miserable as this World is, we should 

he more loath to part with it, if the Mind were to be as sence- 

Isss as the Bodyjburyed with it in a Grave of utter Forge tful- 

ness and Stupidity, That Peace the Upright enter into, is a 

Blissful State, with all the lively agreeable Sensations That 

n hi 
administers. Joy always results from Peace: which composes 

Variances , and ends Strife, which quiets Anger and Fear, makes 

way for the Return of Love, of Friendly and Kind Off ices, and 

gives us an undisturbed Security in our Possessions, 

2 It is implyed,That the Happiness of the Upright is 

not compleatjbut only inchoat,and in order to Perfection, They 

ft in r„ 

shall rest in their beds: denoting their Expectation, and not 

their Fruition of Supreme Happiness, as Calvin observes upon 

the Place, For in these Beds of Rest, their Bodies share not 

in their Felicity: They are waiting for the Adoption, even the 

Redemption of the Body, which, while in the Grave, retains the 

Marks of GOD's Wrath and Curse for Sin: and when Body and Soul 

are made happy, there is the Happiness of the whole Man, which 

must be greater than the Happiness of a single Part, In the 

mean time, their Happiness is begun: for the Flesh rests in hope, 

and full Assurance of Corapleat and everlasting Joys, in the Pres- 
ence and at the Right-hand of GOD, Troubles and Distresses are 
over: Happiness is with them, and before them. So that it may 
well be said as Revelations 14:13. Blessed are the Dead which 
dy in the Lord, from henceforth: yea,sayeth the Spirit, that they

may rest from their laTooiirs ;and their works do follow them. 

The Positive Description of the Upright Man's Hap-"; 
piness is Explicit, in these two "Expression: He shall enter into 
peace: they shall rest in their "beds, ^^ich words, tho' they 
conspire in the same general Sence,yet being different in No- 
tloh"', I shall particularly discant on; That we may thereby have 
a more enlarged and lively Apprehension of the gtate, 

1 The first Expression before us, is, He shall enter 
into peace. In full accord with what the Psalmist had before 
said, Psal, 37:38, Keep innocency,and take heed unto the XIKgX 
thing that is right; for that shall bring a man peace at the 
last, Now is the Time for it, And now it is welcome ; after the 
Troubles Sc Hazards of this Militant State, Dulce Bellum Inex- 
pertis. We enter on the Stage of this World, making light, or 
thinking v/ith Pleasure, of the Difficulties, Dangers, and Opposi- 
tions, that will exercise all our Vigilance and Strength, Coiirage 
and Patience: but Nature is tired after the Experience of sev- 
enty or Fourscore years; and then it is £omfortable'^t6* her ,hav- 
ing fought lawfully, That her warfare is accomplished. Here are 
Worldly and here are Spiritual Enemies, that the Upright Kan, 
with others, has to encounter. Uprightness, tho ' a very amiable 
and beneficent thing, hath sometimes it's outward Enemies, It's 
Example shouls stir up Emulation, but it oftentimes only provokes 
Opposition, It reproves the Manners of a corrupt World, and - 
raises the Envy, the Spleen and Malice of resolute incorrigible 
Offenders; especially when there is a Clashing of interests and 
designs. Therefore Ba.y they, as Wisdom, 2: 12. Let us lye in wait 
for the Righteous :because he is not for our turn, and he is 
clean contrary to our doings ;he upbraideth us with our offending 
the law, and objecteth to our infajny the transgress ings of our

But surely he never wants Enemies to his Soul: the 
World, the Flesh, and the Devil continually seek his Ruin, For, 
in this Life, his Vertues are "but weak and imperfect , he has some 
criminal Appetites and Disorders within him; there are outward 
Temptations enough, too agreeahle with this corrupt Part;and the 
Devil is very Dextrous, and always ready to inforce them; and as 
far as he yields, GOD is also displeased with him. Hence he 
finds work enough to contend vrith himself, to subdue the carnal 
mind which is at enmity with GOD: to remove the Customs, Examp- 
les, Enticements & Terrors of the World; to live "by Faith among 
the Things of Sence,to look through the things which are seen, 
to the eternal Things which are not seen;and to oppose the Dev- 
il disguising himself under, and insinuating himself with these 
Temptations. Here is not a single Encounter , but a constant War- 
fare that our Lives are destined to: and if we are at any time 
careless, remiss or presumptoius,our Enemies will be ready to 
take the Advantage, and to rally their Forces, and may fail(to) 
or overthrow us. And in Consequence of all these things, we are 
to seek Reconciliation with GOD, and a Pardon through his Son, 
I" Now, what happy Beginnings soever there of this Up- 
right Man's peaceful State in the present Life, in his composed 
Desires, in the good Order of all his Faculties, and his security 
against all Events, in the Satisfaction of his Conscience, and 
his Assurance of the Love of GOD; yet it waits for it's Comple- 
tion in Death: Where the wicked cease from troubling, and the 
weary are at rest; where the TJlass of Corruption harboured in this 
Body, the Propensities Incorporated with the Flesh and Blood, are 
laid aside therewith; where GOD frees Death of it' s Sting, which 
is Sin, Sin it's Pollution, and Sin it's Guilt;and the Soul is 
united to GOD, in a more sensible and exhilirating manner than

the test of Saints clo find; in the fullest Liherties with Him, 
and an unshaken Confidence in his aToiding Love and Favour, 

Soinetiines Peace is taken in a more Comprehensive 
Sencejfor the Enjoyment of all Good, perfective of Man's State 
and Desires. And at Death, the upright are "blessed from hence- 
forth, fully satisfied for all they have done and suffered in 
the Service of GOD, for all the Pains they have taken to "become 
acceptahle to him: Tho* as we have said before, not in so Com- 
pile at a, State of Happiness as will follow the Reunion of Bodies, 
However, as a ITatural Consequence of their great Peace and Hap- i 
piness at that time, 

2 They will rest in their "beds. V/hen all their 
Lahor and Drudgery is over; their necessary Care and Diligence 
for their Daily Bread, for the meat which perisheth,for such a 
P^ortipQ in Life, which after all is uncertain, too mean to con- 
tent us;after all their Anxieties for worldly Enjoyments, and 
sorrow for worldly Troubles ; after repeated Experiences of this 
World's Vanity, it may be to old age;having served their Gener- 
ation by the will of GOD;done a great deal of good, as well as 
received a great deal of Evil;having laboured to please GOD, and 
dul,y grieved and, humbled for p.l\. their Imperfections, Neglects 
and Miscarriages: Then Rest is sweet: sweet after such a toil- 
some, but successful Day;and a Bed in the Grave, is softer than 
all the, Delicacies th&t a wiciced. ^lan wallows in. There are no 
Thorns in this Bed: all is either well done, or well finished 
by Repentance. There is nothing tempting to the Desires of a 
Return here:, np^^^Jlmplay and Business here would be any more grate 
ful to them, who have before them the most delightful Scenes of 
Wonder in the Divine 7/isdom, Power, Grace and Goodness, to contem- 
pl3,te:,.jand that blessed and heavenly Exercise, of. celebrating the 
praise of our Creator and Redeemer, in consort with Saints and

eous, and our last End be like his J May our Rest "be without the ' 
Disquietudes of this World, the Pangs of the Guilt, and the Dread 
of Omnipotence J which is the condition of the Wicked, who are 
like the troubled Sea, when it cannot rest; there is no peace, 
saith CfOD,to the wicked. May our Rest' oh our Beds in the Grave, 
"be different from his Imprisonment there: invited and welcomed 
"by us, as it is "by the good Man, saying. Re turn unto thy Rest,0 my 
Soul, for the Lord hath dealt "bountifully with thee! Tho' to an 
outward Eye, the Bed is a Bed of Corrupt ion, yet it is truly a Bed 
of Sp ices, sweet , fragrant , and glorious. 

On such a Bed, we hope, are that remarkable Pair gone 
to Rest, after more than Fifty Years Labour and Rest together 
here. As they were here united in true and exemplary, conjugal 
Affeclion,so by the Providence of GOD',were 'they unlt'eif in' Siclf-

our Thoughts, at this Time, have been led to,

Perfection of their Rest, to follow them with our Commendations, 
These are but mean Accessions to the Felicity of their State. 
But ourowh'Peace and Rest tS^ay "h^e' promoted, if we are duly awak- 
ened and acted by Examples of their Nature, that the World hath 
been adorned with. And tho' we are not sure to match them, or

Temper of an ancient and worthy Family appear in him: contemning 

mean & sordid Actions. He passed through many Changes and Events 

of Life.remarka'ble in their nature, and though troublesonjie and 

IS prepar •'"=* 

dangerous in Themselves, and detrimental to his Family, yet neith- 
er dishonourable in the Occasion, or the Improvement of them. He 
was immovably attached to what he tho't just and right ,courage- 
ous(as I am told) in bearing Witness against, and reproving Vice, , 
a Despiser of this World, a Lover of his Country, acceptable to 
his Family, as an Husband, Father and Master., universally affable, 
courteous and hospitable, ready to do good to all within the Com- 
pass of his Abilities and Opportunities: He had a true Regard 

to Religion and Religious Men, and reverenced the Mysteries and 

the Demands of it; and under the Sence of his Unworthyness, of- 
fered to GOD the Sacrifice of a broken heart, and a contrite 
Spirit, which He will not despise. This Temper he signally dis- 
covered before his o'jm Sickness, and joyned with it a proper Sub- 
mission, as he saw the Sickness of his Consort dissolving that 
Bond of T.larriage that had so long held them together: and with 
this Temper he closed a Life of four-score and one ^ears, fear- 
ing GOD, and calmly and quietly trusting in his Mercy. 

And this, after the Example of his worthy Consort, who 
a few Days before him, passed to an happy Immortalitj'-, She was 
the Virtuous Woman; whom her Children rise up, and call her Bless- 
ed; her Husband also, and he praised her! This is but a due Ac- 
knowledgement to her prudent , handsome, frugal Management of her 
Family: Her patient .submission going through the Troubles of 
this Life, whereof GOD saw meet to allot her no small Share: Her 
open Heart, and open hands to the ]Tecessitious;Her Industrious 
seeking and cheerful embracing all Opportunities to Good: Her 
Contempt of the World ;Her great Care to instruct and Counsel her

John Nelson(1707-1774) ,a methodist ,was "born in Octo- 
ber 1707, in the Parish of the West Riding of York- 
shir eand was brought up to his father's trade of stonemason. He 
has giren in his "Journal" a detailed account of the religious 
perplexities which troubled him from the age of nine or ten^ He ^^ 
married at nineteen, but did not overcome his religious anxieties 
till he heard John Fesley preach in Morefields in 1739, He re- 
turned at the end of 1740 to his native place, and began himself 
to preach and pray with his neighbours. V/esley was convinced 
of the sincerity and success of Nelson and others that he ought 
formally to recognize the work of lay preachers, and in May 1742, 
he visited Bristol, lodged in Nelson's cottage, and preached to 
his converts. Nelson now became the most successful and assidu- 
ous of Wesley's Evangelists, He kept for a year or two a Jour- 
nal of his experiences, which gives a minute and vivid picture 
of his labours in Yorkshire, Cornwall, and other parts of the 
Kingdom, An attempt was made to get rid of him by pressing him 
for a soldier, and he was for some months moved about the Country 
with his regiment till Charles Wesley, by finding a substitute, 
persuaded the authorities to release him, From 1750 to 1770 
Nelson was stationed as official preacher to Methodist societies 
in London, Bristol, Birdstall, Leeds, Derby, Yarm and York, and paid 
one visit to Ireland, In 1773 he was stationed in the Leeds 
circuit,v/here he died of a fit of Apoplexy 18 July 1774, and was 
buried at Birstall. As a preacher he showed a power and express- 
ed an influence scarcely inferior to Wesley's, He was especi- 
ally at home with the poor and ignorant. 

The portion of the "Journal" relating Nelson's experi- 
ences as a soldier was printed first under the title of "The 
Case of John Nelson"(2nd Edition, 1745) . A revision of the

"Journal" to the Porty-Second year of the Author's Life was 
printed in 17 57, with the title, "An Extract of John Nelson's 
Journal ;being an account of God's dealing with his Soul, from 
his youth to the Forty- Second year of his age, and His working 
by him: likewise the oppressions he met with from people of 
different DenSrainations, Written by himself." This went through 
many editions, Nelson's grandson reedited it as "Memoirs of 
the late Mr. John Nelson of Birstall" .Birmingham 1807, These 
Memoirs, with the additional fragments and letters, were again 
edited in Vol.i of "the Lives of the Early Methodist Preachers; 
chiefly written by themselves. Edited with an Introductory Es- 
say, by Thomas Jackson", (3d Edition 1865). The "Letters to the 

.1.6 f'f -v:- ^1- 

Protestant-Dissenters in the Parish of Eallykelly in Ireland" 
is wrongly attributed to Nelson of Birstall, A portrait of Nel- 
son, etched by Harrison, is mentioned by Bromley,

Column erected in Hawkstone Park to the memory of Sir Rowland 
Hill, and the statue of Roger de Montgomery in Shrewsbury Cas- 
tle. Nelson died in Shrewsbury 17 April lS12,aet.86.

RolDert Nelson(1656-1715) , religious writer, born in Lon- 
don, 22 June 1656, was the only surviving son of John Nelson, a 
"Consid.eral:)le Turkey Merchant" , by Delicia, daughter of Lewis and 
sister of Sir Gabriel Roberts, who, like John Nelson, was a member 
of the Levant Company. John Nelson died 4 Sept, 1657 , leaving a 
good portion to his son. The mother sent Robert for a time to 
St.Paul's School, but took him home "out of fondness." She set- 
tled at Dryfield, Gloucestershire, the home of her sister Anne, 
wife of George Hanger, also a member of the Levant Company, Here 
George Bull, afterwards Bishop of St.Bavids, then Rector of Sud- 
dington in the neighbourhood, acted as his tutor. He entered 
Trinity College, Cambridge, as Fellow Commoner in 167 8, but never 
resided. He very earlj'" became known for his abilities and his 
charm of character. As early as 1680 he began an affectionate 
correspondence v/ith Tillotson,who was a friend of Sir Gabriel 
Roberts, He was chosen a fellow of the Royal Society 1 April 
1680, He then went to Paris, accompanied by his School-Fellow, 
Edmund Halley,and afterwards made the Grand Tour, re turning in 
August 1682. During his travels he met at Rome Lady Theophilia 
Lucy,widov/ of Sir Kingsmill Lucy, of Bronxbourne, Hertfordshire, 
and second daughter of George, Earl of Berkeley. She had a son 
twelve years old hy her first husband, and was two years Nelson's 
Senior. He married her 23 Nov, 1682, the marriage having been 
postponed for a time in consequence of the elopement of her » 
sister with Lord Grey, of Werke, She had, it is said, been con- 
verted to Catholicism 8.t Rome by Cardinal Philip Howard, and 
Nelson was not aware of this until after their marriage ;but 
it seems more probable that her conversion did not take place 
until after that event, Tillotson endeavoured in vain to bring 
her back to the Church of England.

"A Discourse concerning a Judge in Controversy in -' 
matters of Religion", published in 1686, upon the Roman Catho- 
lic side of the Question, is ascribed to her, and in the next 
year TTelson wrote against Transubstantiation, Their religious 
differences, however, did not disturb their affection. He took 
her to Aix-la-Chapelle on account of her health. He left her 
there during a visit to England in 1688 ;but the revoluti'CTT de- 
termined him to return to the continent. He travelled with 
his wife and her son and daughter by her first marriage, to Rome. 
He lived for a time at Florence, and corresponded vrith .Tames Mel- 
fort, Jajnes II 's envoy to the Pope, He was a Jacobite in his 
sympathies, though not engaged in any active measvires. He re- 
turned by way of Germany and the Hague to England in 1691, and ' 
settled at Blackheath. The correspondence vdth Tillotson,from 
v/hom he was divided on both religious and moral grounds, was *• 
probably dropped for a time;but Tillo'tso^' was attena'6'a. by Nel- 
son during the last two nights of his illness, and died in his 
arms 22 Nov, 1694. Nelson afterwards helped to obtain an in- 
creased pension for l^lrs.Tillotson, He hacl meanwhile joined 
the non- Jurors. He became very intimate after 1691 with John^^- 
Kettlewell,the non-Juring Divine, and Kettlewell, dying in 1695, 
made him his Executor, It Was' by Kettlewell 's advice that he 
began the religious v^Titings by which he is best known, and he 
supplied Prancis Lee with materials for Kettlewell' s Life, It 
v^as through Kettlwwell that he came to know Hicks, and he was 
soon in close communication with all the non-juring circle, Dod- 
well, Collier .Leslie, Brokesby, and others.

Thomas Nelson(1822-1892) , publisher ,. youngest son of 
Thomas Nelson(l780-lS61) ,who was the founder of the firm of 

Thomas Nelson & Sons, was "born at Edinburgh 25 Decemher 1822. 

'Q at one ft i:.'!itat£d b 
He was educated at the High School of his native town, and en- 
tered his father's business at the age of seventeen. The bus- 
iness was the extending, owing to the tact and energy of Wil- 
b\ the fire waa i for new macriir!- 

liam,the elder son(Vide Infra). The staple of their trade was 

the reprinting of Standard authors at a low price. In 1844 

Thomas was entrusted with the establishment of a London branch, 
were r all the a a w: 

of which he had charge for more than a year. In 1846 the firm 

removed from the West "Bow to larger premises in Edinburgh at 

Hope Park. There all the operations connected with the produc- 

niap enftrt- I iiis 

tion of books-printing, stereotyping, bookbinding, lithographing, 

engraving and wood-cutting were carried on with great success. 

Ultimately the workmen numbered six- hundred, Thomas proved an 
•* aer ■. 

enargetic superintendant of the manufacturing department. From 

his earliest years he showed a remarkable turn for mechanics, 

and in 1880 he invented a rotary press, with curved stereotyped 

ne a 
plates fixed on cylinders , and v;ith a continuous web of paper. 

This press was the original of all the rotary presses now in 

use for newspaper work, but he did not patent the invention. He 
:v or a.n-i Sou 

also introduced into the business many devices in printing,bool£- 

binding, and photo-zincography, and the Nelsons became widely 

known for the beauty and accuracy of their typography.

The firm soon devoted itself largely to the production 

of story books, and books of travel and adventure by popular Au- 
thors, especially intended for Juvenile readers. Thomas also in- 
itiated a series of school books -;inr*itten principally by himself- 
with maps and atlasses,and he also edited "The Children's Pa- 
per", which had an enormous sale. In his maps and atlasses he

introduced, in addition to the lines of latitude and longitude, 
the measurement in Englishe miles. After the education Act of 
1870 had created a demand for improved school-books, the Nelsons 
started the "Royal Readers" , which were at once imitated "by all 
the great publishing houses. A fire in 1878 completely destroy- 
ed their premises, nothing being saved but the stereot;;rped plates. 
But while the fire was raging Thomas telegraphed for new machin- 
es, and in a few days sheds were erected near the "Queen's" Park, 
and business proceeded as usual. Within a year huge buildings 
were raised, and all the departments were in full work on a lar- 
ger scale than before, Thomas extended his operations by becom- 
T,er • 

ing a partner in the firm of Bartholomew & Co., the well-known 

map engravers, whose premises adjoined his own, 

Nelson was a liberal in politics and a free Churchman, 
He identified his firm with the free Church, and published its 
"Monthly Record" , Children's Record", and other official documents- 
He wrote numerous letters to the "Scotsman" , advocating disestab- 
lishment without disendowment. 

After two years of delicate health he died in Edin- 
burgh, 20 October 1892, His life was one of incessant toil, and 
L\Q. i'.inei*al 
he left a fortune exceeding a million. In 1868 he married Jesse 


Kemp , daughter of James Kemp, of Manchester and South America, 

Besides writing and editing a large nu}iiber of school- 
books, Nelson was the author of-(l) "New Atlas of the World, By 
Th, Nelson and Thomas Davies" .London, 1859, fol. ; (2) " A Class At- 
las of Ancient Geography",Edinburgh(l867) ,8vo.

William IJelson (1816-1887 ), youngest "brother of Thomas 

Nelson (Supra) ."born 13 December 1816, at Edinburgh, was educated 

at the High School, where he gained the classical gold meadl, 

he Kc-:..- ac n'-nK-:. ■■>■••'■ -^ :.'■ ''-i" 

Subsequently he entered his father's business as bookseller and 

publisher in 1835. With his brother Thomas, William gradually 
built up the business. He was in every respect a capable man 
of business, but took life much more leisurely than his brother, 
and in his beautiful home at Salisbury Green gratified many re- 
fined tastes, such as the collection of china and bronzes , gath- 
ered together in travel in all parts of the world. He also in- 
terested himself in the improvement of his native city, and he 
expended large sums in restoring St. Bernard's Well on the Water 
of Leith,the Argyll Tower, St .Margaret 's Chapel, and the Old Sco- 
tish Parliament House in Edinburgh Castle. At Kinghorn in Fife- 
shire, the birthplace of his mother, he erected a memorial cross 
to Alexander III, the last of the Celtic Kings, 

In July 1887 he was presented with the freedom of the 
burgh of Kinghorn, and he died in Edinburgh, 10 September 1887, on 
the eve of a visit to Greece. His remains were accorded a pub- 
lic funeral by the city, and interred in Grange Cemetry. On 24 
July 1851 he married Catherine Ingl is, daughter of Robert Inglis 
of Kirmay,Fifeshire, He left a widowyfour daughters, and a son, 
Eveline, the eldest daughter, was married in 1874 to Thomas Annan- 
dale, professor of Surgery in Edinburgh University; and in 1886 
the second daughter, Florence .married S.Fraser MacLeod, barrister 
of London. (Scotsman .September 11,1887 ;William Nelson, -a Memoir

William Nelson (f 1.1720) , legal writer, born in 1653, v/as 
son of "^"^illiam Melson,of Chaddleworth, Berkshire. On 16 July - 
1669 he matricualted at Trinity College, Oxfordj'bu^. did not grad- 
uate. He was called to the bar fron Middle Temple in 1684, and 
was elevated to the bench in 1706(Poster, Alumni Oxon. 1500-1714, 
iii,1056). He practiced in the Court of Chancery for many years. 

.kelson's judicial knowledge v/as undoubtedly great, but 
lacking both judgement and acumen. Although an unsparing critic 
of the labours of others, he v/as himself inaccurate and slovenly. 
His books are:

Court of Chancery", 1625-1693, 8vo. The Savoy, 1594(anoth- 
er edition 1717) ,

1745) .

*•"- of England. .,, concerning Last Wills and Testaments" ,8vo, 

the Savoy, 1714( other editions 1724 and 1728). 

5. "Reports of Cases decreed in the high Court of Chan- 
cery during the time of Sir Reneage Pinck(Lord Chancel- 
lor Nattinghara) ,1673-81", fol. , London, 1725, said to be a 
book of no authority, 

6. "Lex Maneriorum;or , the Lav;s and Customs of England re- 
lating to Manors", &c. ,2 parts , folio, the Savoy, 1726 (Oth-

Helson translated and annotated Sir Edward Lutwyche's 

"Reports and Entries" , folio , London, 1718. The work was stigma-

V/illiam Nelson, first Earl Nelson(1757-1835) , eldest 

son of Edmund Nelson, rector of Burnham- Thorpe, in Norfolk, and 

brother of Horatio, viscount Nelson(q.v.) ,was horn at Burnham- 

Thorpe 20 April 1757. He graduated B.A. from Christ's College, 

Cambridge, in 1776, and proceeded M.A. in 1781. The same year 

he was ordained, and in January 17 84 was appointed to the Eec- 
X -to rofeo-t" n 

tory of Brandon-Parva,in Norfolk. He had before this consulted 

r ^.on ;u-'d Fur} .''.o.i.,vcr- 

his brother on the advisability of entering the Navy as a Chap- ^ 

lain, and in June 1784 was appointed to the Boreas , though he did 

n o f 
not join her imtil September. In her he went to the West Indie^' 

but the restraint would seem to have been distatsteful to him, 

and though on leave away from the ship for most of the time, he 

'.. it lu tl- 

obtained his discharge from her and from the service in October 

1786. It has been urged against his brother that, as Captain of 

the ship, he tolerated the abuse of his Chaplain's drawing pay 

without performing his duties. Nelson certainly did not perform 

the duties, but on the other hand, he did not receive any pay( 

vide Pay-Book of Boreas) ; a singular fact, which is evidence of 

a scrupulous nicety very unusual at the time. 

On Nelson's return to England he married, in November 

17 86, Sarah, daughter of Rev. Henry Yonge,and settled dovm as a 

,. ^.T;).■i"■ 
Country parson at Brandon-Parva,from which, in 1797, he v;as trana-^ 

ferred to Hilborough,also in Norfolk. The interest that attach- 
es to him during this time is mainly as correspondent of his 

■',-<i.tid n;. 

distinguished brother, who wrote to h±m frequently, freely ex- 
pressing his opinion of men and affairs. Without these confi- 
dential letters our knowledge of the great Admiral would be 
much attenuated. When Lord Nelson was at home, and especially 
after the peace at Amiens, the brothers were a great deal togeth- 
er, the parson and his wife freely visiting and being on intimate

terms with Lad3r Hamilton. The Admiral's glory reflected on the 
clergyman. In January 1802 the University of Cambridge conferr- 
ed en him the degree of D.B. as did Oxford in the following June 
and in I4ay 1603 he was appointed to a prehendal stall at Cantei*- 
bury. By the death of his "brother, 21 Octoher 1505, he succeeded 
as Baron Nelson of the Nile/the viscounty "becoming extinct, as 
limited hy patent to male heirs of the body. On November 10, 
however, he was created Viscount Merton and Earl Nelson of Tra- 
falgar and Merton, and in the following year he succeeded as Di;ike 
of Bronte', A pension of 5,000 pounds sterling a year was gran- 
ted to him by Parliajnent ,and the sum of 90,000 pounds sterling 
for the purchase of a Mansion and Estates; this svim was in 1814 
laid out in the purchase of Stanlynoh Park, near Do'OTiton,in Wilt- 
shire, He died in London 28 Februa,ry 1835, 

Nelson is described by Sir William Hatham as large and 
heavj'' in his person, boisterous in his manner, "his own voice very 
loud, and he exceedingly KSiiX. and impatiently deaf." Nelson has 
been unjustly accused of concealing the last codicile to Lord *-^ 

Nelson's Will in favour of Ladj'- Hamilton till the government 

grantM the Earldom was settled on himself , and then throwing 

it to her in an insulting manner. The document from the first 
placed in the hands of the officers of the government , who decid- 
ed that nothing could be done about it. Under the altered con- 
ditions tmd demeanor of Lady Hamilton, Nelson gradually dropped 
the intimacy, and almost the acquaintanceship. His wife died in 
1828, and in the following j'-ear he married, Hilore, daughter of 
Rear-Adniiral Sir Robert Barlow, and widow of her cousin, George 
Ulric Barlow. After Nelson's death she married, thirdly, George j 
Thomas Knight, and died in 1857. By his first wife Nelson had 
issue one son,v/ho predeceased him in 1808, and a daughter , Char-

lotte Mary, married in 1810 to viscount Bridgeport ; on the death 

of her father she succeeded to the Sicilian title as Duchess 

f fid cj< 

of Bronte"; The Earldom, hy the terms of the patent , passed to 

Thomas Bolton, the son of Nelson's sister, Susannah. 

Wolfred lTelson(1792-1863) .Canadian insurgent , was horn 

at Montreal 16 July 1792. His father ,?^illiam Nelson, held an 

office in the Commissariat department of the Royal Navy;his 

mother was the daughter of an American loyalist named Dies, 
owner of an Estate on the Hudson River, who emigrated to Canada 
after the revolt of the American Colonies. In December 1805 
T^olfred Nelson was apprenticed to Dr. Carter, of the army medical 
staff , then residing at Sorel, In January 1811 he obtained his 
medical diploma, and began practice as a physician at St. Denis, 
on the Richelieu river, near Montreal. In the war between Eng- 
land and the United States in 1812 Nelson accompanied the ma- 
litia regiment of his district to the frontier. During the next

fifteen years he remained at St. Denis. Besides his medical 

work he carried on a distillery and a brev/ery. He was made a

justice of the peace, and rapidly acquired great influence among 

ft , ^-nrf 

the surrounding people, the vast majority of whom v/ere French 

Canadians or Inhabitants. Though coming of a rigidly royalist 

and tory stock, Nelson completely identified himself with the 

inhabitants, and headed the cry raised by them for an alteration 

in the exclusive system of government then in Vogue. In 1827 

he contested the borough of William Henry against James Stuart, 
the attorney-general for Lower Canada, and defeated him by three 

votes. In the assembly Nelson closely allied himself with Louis 

Papineau.head of the French party. On 23 October 1837 a great

meeting of delegates from six counties of lower Canada was held 
at St. Charles. "Nelson acted as Chairman, and so violent v;as the 
tone of his speech, that the Governor , Lord Gosford, issued a war- 
rant against him and Papineau;a reward of two- thousand dollars 
was offered for Nelson's apprehension, Papineau urged surren- 
der, hut Nelson, bent upon rebellion, entrenched himself, with 
George Cartier and a number of French inhabitants , in his Brew- 
ery, a large stone house at the north-west corner of St.Denis, 
and prepared for armed resistance. On 23 November he beat off 
an attack made by Colonel Gore and a company of the 23d regi- 
ment with heavy loss. Two days alter, however, the rebel camp 
at St. Charles, seven miles distant from St .Denis ,7ras stormed by 
the English. Nelson now evacuated his position, tried to escape 
to American soil, but was captured and brought to Montreal a 
prisoner. His brother , Robert Nelson, who had joined him, escaped 
to the American States, whence he organized an expedition against 
Canada during 1838. Nelson remained in Goal till 1838, when the 
High Commissioner, Lord Durham, on his own responsibility, senten- 
ced him and a number of other prisoners to transportation to 
Bermuda. The sentence was reversed as invalid by the Home Gov- 
ernment, and Nelson was set free. But, fearing subsequent pros- 
ecution, he retired to America in November 1838. He returned to 
Montreal in 1842, after the amnesty, and resumed his practice as 
a physician. His popularity continued, and in 1845, he was elec- 
ted to the Canadian Assembly for the County of Richelieu in op- 
position to D.B.Viger. He supported the Rebellion Losses Bill, 
a measure bitterly resented by the English and Loyalist party; 
but as a general rule he showed himself opposed to any extreme 
action. He thus recovered favoixr with the Government. In 1847 
he was appointed chairman of the Borad of Health, In 1851 he

Samuel ITelson, 

This Nelson does not appear to belong to either the 
English or the American "branch of the family descended from 
the English family. In the following notes it is stated that 
his family were of Scotch-Irish origin, and such a statement is, 
in all prohahilityjtrue. By giving a short account of his life 
in this work no other apology need he offered than, that the ma.n^S 
life and life's v/ork demands a place wherever uprightness of 
conduct and integrity of character are appreciated. It might 
he added, that here, as in no other place, the best and most that 
can he said of him, must he said,(C,N,) 

^' The Honourable Samuel Nelson, late Associate Justice 

of the Supreme Court of the United States, was born at Hebron, 
Washington Count3'-,New York, 10 November 1792, and died at his home 
in Cooperstown,New York, 13 December 1873, He came of Scotch-- 
Irish lii^eage. His father was one of a conpan;/- of settlers, 
that emigrated from the North of Ireland, about the year 1762, 
with their pastor, the Re v. Dr. Clark, and settled at Salem, now in 
Washington County, His son, John Rogers Nelson, was married a 
short time after the close of the Revolutionary War, to Miss Jean 
McCarter,and settled at Hebron, The old Homestead still remains 
in the possession of the family, and was long occupied by John 
Jay Nelson, the eldest son of John Rogers Nelson, who lived to a 
good old age, 

Samuel Nelson's early life was spent on the farm. He 
attended the District School till he 3HQf had mastered the branch 
es taught there, and was next sent to the Classical School in 
Salem; taught by the Rev, Mr, Gross, and afterwards fitted for Col- 
lege at the Granville Academy; of which, the Principal was the 
celebrated Salem Towne,who had once been the instructor of Gov- 
ernor Marcy, In 1811, being then Nineteen years old, he entered 
Middlebury College, Vt, , and graduated in 1813. Having selected 
the law for his prof ession,he became a student in the office 
of Savage and Woods, v;here he remained two years ;at the end of

that time the firm was dissolved, and Judge Woods moved to Mad- 
ison County whither Mr .Nelson accompanied him. 

In January 1817 he was admitted to the Bar, and soon 
afterwards "began the pEactice of his profession in the village 
of Courtlandt. For several years his business was principally 

in the Justices Courts, and he enjoyed almost a Monopoly in the 

■- + 1.-.. 

southern towns of Courtlandt County, His first suit in the 

Court of Common Pleas, upon a stock note, was decided against

him;'but he did not, however, let the natter rest here. Finding 
upon reference to his hooks, that the decision was illegal, he 

procured a stay of proceedings , had the judgement set aside, and

finally obtained a reversal of the decision. This, at once,es-

He always took a deep interest in politics. In 18P.0 
he was chosen a"Presidential Elector" on the Democratic ticket . 
by the Legislature, and as such cast his vote for Munroe and 
Tompkins, A few weeks later, to his surprize, he received the 
appointment as Postmaster of Courtlandt, Being on intimate 
terms vYith Major Hoswell Randall, v/ho was the incumbent of the 
office at that time, made his position womewhat embarrassing. 
It transpired, however, that Major Randall had himself been in- 
strumental in procuring the appointment of Mr, Nelson, In 1612 
was held the Constitutional Convention and Mr, Nelson was elect- 
ed a delegate from Courtlandt County, Here he gave the closest 
attention to the proposed modifications, and distinguished him- 
self , more especially, by his endeavours to procure the abolition 
of the property quallif ication of voters. He had by this time 
a reputation, which extended all through Courtlandt County and 
its vicinity.

His practice now yielded him a handsome income, and 
in 1818, he was married to Miss Pamelia ^i^oods , daughter of Judge 
Woods, his former Preceptor. This m.arriage, though a happy one, 
'■was terminated by Mrs. Nelson's death some three years later. 
She v/as a most estim.a'ble woman, and her hushand was devotedly 
attached to her. 

In the year 18?,3 Yates hecame GoYernor under the new 
Constitution, One of his first acts was to nominate I''[r. Nelson 
to the office of Circuit Judge, and the nomination was confirmed 
^■8^ thi' Senate on the First of Pcbruary 1823. This District 
comprized the counties of Eroome, Chenango, C our tlandt, Delaware, 
Otsego, Tioga, Tompkins, Steuhen and Yates. This position he occu- 
pied for eight 3'-ears,and with it "began a judicial career, which 
in dmration and usefulness has not heen surpassed "'in this Coun- 
try, -and prohahly not in the history of Jurisprudence, His '" 
jurisdiction embraced Civil and Crim-inal cases, a.nd the Judicial 
acvimen of the presiding Judge was often severely tested. 

Judge Nelson always proved himself fully competent 
'^^o fulfill the duties involving upon him. The death of his 
wife, and the conviction that he was outgrowing the field in 
which he was labouring. Courtlandt Countir being at that time 
■•"dne of the I».)?^fflnt least populous counties of the State, made 
' a further residence seem no longer desirable to him. Other 
lavryers of ability had began their career there, and after the 
discipline of a fevj years, removed to localities offering a wid- 
er scope for their talents. He, therefore, took up his residence 
at Cooperstown, in the place then kno^jm as "Apple Hill", which 
was subsequently purchased by Mr. Edward Clark, v.'ho changed its 
name to "Fernleigh," Coopersto^^^l continued to be his home to 
the end of his life. XIXXXBXa:?:*ii£«*JiX

In 1825, before iiis removal to Cooperstown,he was mar- 
ried,a second time, to Miss Catherine A.Russell, the daughter of 
Judge Russell of Cooperstov.Tija marriage which proved to he a 
most happy one, 

But a wider sphere of usefulness was ahout to he open- 
ed to him. In 1831 the term of Nathan Sanford as United States 
Senator expired, and he was succeeded hy William L,Marcy« The 
celebrated "Albany Regency" was now in full power, and it alv/ays 
endeavoured to secure the appointment of the most capable men ' 
for every position. Under this Regency, Judge Nelson, was, on the 
First of February, made Associate Judge of the Supreme Court of 
the State, It is hardly necessary to state, that in this new 
field, he was entirely at home. Judge Savage, his old precep- 
tor, was Chief Justice. In August 1837 , Governor Marcy appoint- 
ed him Chief Justice, upon the retirement of Judge Savage; a po- 
sition he retained for eight years. 

t V'. p 

The Supreme Court at this period was a Tribunal of 
great dignity and learning;and its decisions had long been cit- 
ed in all the states of the Union, where the Common Lav? prevail- 
ed. As long as Judge Nelson occupied the bench, this reputation 
was maintained. But all this was changed by the Constitutional 
Convention in 1846, when all jurisdiction in law and equity was 
blended in the Supreme Court, a.nd its judges became elective; 
thus virtually creating Eight Supreme Courts of co-ordinate pow- 
ers, -often adverse to each other in decisions. 

In March 1845, Judge Nelson was prom-oted to still wid- 
er field of duty. The death of Smith Thompson in 1844, had 
created a vacancy on the bench of the Supreme Court of the Unit- 
ed States. The president , Mr .Tyler , had nominated John C.Spencer, 
but the Senate refused to confirm the nomination. Chancellor

Walworth was next proposed, "but the president hesitated until 
the presidential election should be decided,vfhen Judge Nelson 
was nominated and confirmed. Of his ability, there was not two 
opinions, hut it was suggested by some, that it his long experi- 
ence in the administration of the Common Law, had in a grea.t mea- 
sure disquallif ied him for aji understanding of the broader sys" 
tern of equity, maritime, admiralty and international jurispredence 
administered in the Federal Courts, But Ehese apprehensions, 
as it was soon discover ed,v/ere all unfounded. He had no sooner 
taken his seat on the bench of the Circuit Court of New York, 
than he began to investigate every question as it arose, and to 
study its bearing on the case before him. Not only did he sus- 
tain his reputation, but an appeal was seldom taken from his de- 
cisions. On questions of admiralty and maritime law, he was con- 
sidered strong authority. He had so mastered the principles 
v;hich underlie administration, and applied them so conscientious- 
ly, that he was by common consent , awarded the first rank among ie<i 
American Jurists. 

The "Dredd Scott Decision" was pronounced. The chang- 
ed condition of the Negro race which followed the civil war, bad, 
in a measure, swept away the basis on which the famous decision 
was made. It had long been recognized that the Negro constitut- 
ed no integral part of the Nation, and on this ground it was de- 
cided, "that he had no standing" in the Court, and the case was 
accordingly dismissed for want of Jurisdiction, 
8 (By this decision of the Supreme Court of the United" 
States, it v/as the logical conclusion by the majority of the 
American people that the Constitution v/ould have to be changed 
or amended, before the vexed slavery question could be settled. 
The slavery question was settled and in what manner is too well-

known to "be rehearsed here. It is sufficient to state that the 
"Dredd Scott Decision" , was an important factor in bringing on 
the greatest Fratricidal contest the World has ever seen, -the 
Civil War of the JRehellion,-and by that contest and the "Eman- 
cipation Proclamation , issued by the "Immortal Lincoln" , made the 
Negro a free man, -"an Integral part of the Nation," By theXV 
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Negro 
obtained his right of suffrage.) 

Many and bitter v/ere the speeches made against this 

"ted ■ the i\)hfy'ir'f.y^ r.r-.. 

decision, A struggle soon v/as to begin, that would reverse the 

decision against the Negro. During the Civil War Judge Nelson 

soon demonstrated where his sympathies lay in regard to the Ne- 
that year. 

gro,and just as soon as the Constitution gave him jurisdiction 
over the Negro, just that soon did he demonstrate his willingness 

to make him a citizen, -equal in suffrage with the white man, 

the i. 

During the v/hole struggle he continued to faithfully 

discharge his official duties, and president Lincoln often relied 

upon his judgement in matters of the utmost importance to the 
',.e ar ; 

National v;elfare. He won and retained the confidence of the 

party then in power, and his loyalty was never questioned. He 

disapproved of many invasions of the rights of the citizen, which 

were made under the military authority, but never by v;ord or act 

did he obstruct the maintenance of the government. 

Els labours v;ere, however , not vrholly confined to the 
': cor 

prescribed duties of the Court, His counsel was frequently 

sought upon the gravest questions of^ state. He entered the Su- 
preme Court during the height of the Slavery agitation; as illus- 
trated in the Mexican War, and the annexation of Texas, T5[ues- 
tions closelj'' trenching on the political conflict sometimes 
reached the Court, and the stormy passions of the hour were as 
strongly reflected in its chambers as in the "Halls of Congress?

Through all this time, Judge Nelson never forfeited any part of 
the puhlic esteem. The people cherished the same confidence in 
his judicial prohity that they had "before this period, and succes 
sive administrations have often asked for and acted upon his caln 
calm sohriety of judgement. President Lincoln and Secretary 
Seward placed great faith in his wisdom, and many times consult- 
ed him upon delicate questions arising out of the crisis of the 
Civil War. 

In 1871 he was selected as one of the American Com- 
missioners on the "Joint High Commission" , for the purpose of 
settling the "Alahama Claims" , which met in Washington, D. C, , in 
that year. His familiarity with "International Law", his legal 
acuteness,a,ccompanied "by persuasive manners , frankness , conscient- 
iousness and learning, admirably fitted him for taking part in 
the solution of that vexed controversy, while his high reputation 
for personallXJ^ probity won for hira the utmost consideration and 
regard. He could bring into play all the tact of the diplomat- 
ist, the erudition and acuteness of the jurist, the sagacity of 
the statesman, and the iron will of the executive officer. Eis 
patriotism was beyond question, his industry indefatigueable. 

The sessions of the commission had almost come to a 

close, v.-hen those having the custody of the rooms in which the 

commissioners were sitting, carelessly let the fires go out. 

Judge Nelson contracted a severe cold, and this soon brought on 

an attack of Lumbago, from v/hich he never recovered. He sought 

medical advice but in vain. Returning home he spent the season 

of 1872 with his family, but he found the tortiire of his disease 

too severe to warrant the resumption of his official duties, 
Ee was too conscientious to retain a position, the labours of 

which he did not perform. He accordingly pla.ced his resignation

in the hands of the President, and v/as succeeded "by Ward Hunt. 
It was with deep regret that the news of his resigantion was 
received by thememlDers of the Bar. On the 17th of January 1873 
a meeting of the principle lawyers, of the Southern District of 
New York, was held in the United States Court Room, over which 
Charles O'Connor presided, Different speakers gave voice to 
their appreciation of the character and official career of Judge 
Nelson, and finally Mr .E.W.Stoutenton was appointed to prepare 
an expression of the regard in which he was held. Other trib- 
utes, equally appropriate, v/ere paid to him in other places. He 
could have a successor , hut he could not he replaced. Mr.S.M. 
Shaw, editor of the "Freeman's Journal" of Cooperstown, in an ar- 
ticle published in that paper, 12 December 1872, thus refers to 
Judge Nelson; 

"After a service of twenty-eight years on the bench of 
the Supreme Court of the United States, and tv.-enty-two years as 
a judicial officer of his native State, Judge Nelson, on Thanks- 
giving Day, sent to the Secretary of State of the United States 
his resigantion as one of the Justices of the Supreme Court, and 
it v/as accepted on the 1st inst. And thus closes a most remark- 
able and highly honourable and distinguished judicial career; 
covering a period of half a Century. As to point of time and 
constant service, it is without precedent in this Country, or 
Great Britain, and we doubt whether it has a parallel in the 
history of Jurisprudence. lord Mansfield served thirty-tv/o 
years, and Lord Elden twenty-eight. Chief-Justice Marshall was" 
thirty-four years on the bench, Chief-Justice Taney thirty years. 
J-lr. Just ice Story thirty-four years, and Chancellor Kent alDOut 
twenty-five years. And of the distinguished men of this coun- 
try, they have longest held judicial positions. 

It has been said by some of his admirers that Samuel 
Nelson was born a Judge. However this may be, industry and ex- 
perience made him one. His decisions have stood the test of 
time, and the searching analysis of the most able lawyers ;and arc 
referred to as authority in Great Britain and throughout the 
United States, One decision in which he concurred was reversed 
by the'»Civil-War",-"by an appeal to the people", as it has been 
derisively referred to. The others remain as interpretations 
of law, and stand boldly out as beacons to guide those who come 
after. Judge Nelson seemed to, but did not grasp the points of 
a case by intuition. He was thoroughly familiar with the law, 
and his clear reason enabled him to see through foggy surround- 
ings, and separate, unerrinf^ly, the true from the false issues. He 
always bore himself with the dignity and urbanity which befit- 
ted his position. And whether on the bench or in the social

circle, he inspired the regard of all who marked his uniform 
courtesy. He has left a deep impression upon our Jurisprudence, 
and v/ill rank in history as the peer of any who ever wore the 

Jadge Nelson's nsme v/as more than once mentioned in 
connection v/ith the Democratic nomination for the Presidency. 
But others v/ere awarded the honour. His sagacity would have 
enahled him, as it was "believed at the time, to have determined 
all the vexed questions that were created by the slavery agita- 
tion, and his popularity would have caused the people to acquies- 
ce in his acts. It was indeed the opinion of many, that if he 
had "been President before the outbreak of the Civil War, that >, 
calamity could have been averted. 

Judge Nelson, in 1829, moved to the estate near Coopers- 
town, known as "Penimore" , there he continued to reside till the 
death of Mrs. Russell in I838;\7hen JJirs, Nelson, an only daughter, 
deemed it advisable to return to the home stead, which remained 
his home until his death, 

i Judge Nelson v/as strong in his home attachments. Prob- 
ably no other man ever assumed less in consequence of his exalt- 
ed position, TVlthough always dignified, he never repelled any 
one in humble life, and he found no greater pleasure than to 
throw off the cares of office and discuss with some farmer, whom 
he might chance to meet on the street, the state of the weather 
and crops. The almost extreme modesty of his public life, and 
its counterpart in thoroughly developed domestic virtues, which 
not only made him beloved in his family, but also endeared him 
to all whom he came in contact. Gentle in his manners, he never 
descended into a familiarity which would encourage disrespect; 
nor did he repel the intimacy of friendship, which constitutes 
the greatest joys of life. His figure was erect till his last 
years. He was as cheerful a,nd his intellect as clear and strong 
at eighty, as when he was but twenty years of age. He was slow 
in forming his judgements of men, and was generally reluctant to 
express them when unfavourable. In his profession he acquired 
a competent estate, and in its besto^raient he was generous, careful 
arid eminentl:/ judicious , neither stingy nor profuse. He was the 
intimate personal friend and associate of another notable res- 
ident of Cooperstovm, the late James Feninore Cooper, His ap- 
pointment as Chief Justice of the State took place soon after 
Mr, Cooper purchased "The Hall", and the latter always spoke of 
him as, "His Pr lend, the Judge, or The Chief." The two were often 
seen together on the street, and in fine personal presence and 
noble bearing, they bore a striking resemblence to each other, 
Mr, Cooper had a great deal of the lawyer in him, and often dis- 
cussed and consulted with the Judge on the political condition 
of the Country in its legal aspect. They were both fond of farm 
ing and other rural pursuits ;and as their farms lay on opposite 
sides, about a mile distant from each other, they were able, fre- 
quently to compare notes as to their success as Agriculturists, 
It is a matter of interest to note, that a part of the farm "Pen- 
imore" was formerly in the possession of Tir. Cooper, and the site 
of the house which he built, lies immediately in front of the 
present house at "Penimore," 

The Judge's excellent health was doubtless due to the 
frequency and regularity of phj'-sical exercise. Until within two 
or three years of his decease, his favorite mode of exercise was 
horseback riding; and his daily visit to the farm was often made 
in this way, long after he had reached the allotted "Three-Score

years and Ten," He was a Vestryman of Christ-Ciaurch,and during 
the latter part of his life occupying the position of Wardeno 
He took the greatest interest in the welfare of the Parish, and 
was liberal with his means in this way. It was his Christian i» 
Faith v/hich developed into striking fullness the nohility of his 
character. Towards the close of his life, he took especial in- 
terest in the discussion of the Religious topics of the day. 
His conversation, as might he expected from a man of his exten- 
sive reading, was always instructive and entertaining. After his 
retirement from off ice, he employed the most of his time in read- 

Fe\f lives have heen more completely rounded out than 
that of Judge Nelson. His mind remained unimpaired to the last, 
and he v/as comparatively free from pain,- After the first shock 
of his illness had subsided. His death was a remarkably easy 
one, there being no severe attack of visible disease, no trace of 
pain or suffering in his countenance. At nid-da,/-, sitting in his 
chair, he calmly exi:)ired. His certainly was a happy old age, and 
but few men have died more deeply or universally regretted,"

tor , clergyman, was born near JoneslDorough, Tennessee, 24 September

Kentuclcey,and at Philadelphia, He joined a Kentuckey regiment 

as a sugeon in the War of 1812, and proceeded to Canada, Ofa his 

return he resumed the practice of Medicine, After making a pro- 
fession of religion in early life, he lapsed into infidelity, but 
at length returned to his religious convictions, became a clergy- 
man in the Presbyterian Church, and was licensed to preach in 
1825. He preached for nearly three years in Tennessee, and was 
engaged in the publication of a periodical called "The Calvin- 
istic JIagazine." In 1828 he succeeded his brother, Samuel, as 
pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Danville, Kentuckey, In 
1830 he removed to Missouri , established a college in Marion 
County, twelve miles from Palmyra, of which he became the first 
president. In 1836 ov/ing to the slavery question, Dr. Nelson, 
who was an ardent Emancipationist, removed to the neighbourhood 
of Q,uincy, Illinois, and established an Institute for the educa- 
tion of young men. In the latter part of his life he was sub- 
ject to Epilepsy, which gradually impaired his faculties. He 
published the celebrated work, "The Cause and Cure of Infidel- 
ity", which has passed through several editions.

The history of the Nelson family which is to follow 
as ii; -3 of t/iQ country, m p. 

dates "back to almost, if not quite, the first English settlement 

or permanent oocupancv «#■ the English of New York, It can "be 
stated with almost a certainty that with the wresting of Nieu 
Amsterdam from the Dutch "by the Duke of York "begins the resi- 
dence of the first comer of the family name. Others of the 
name had settled in different parts of the country; as, "Scotch 
Tom Nelson, in Virginia; Temple Nelson, in Boston ;v;hile still oth- 
ers had settled in the forests of Maine; all clinging to some 
trace of their origin, in the Mother- Country, with indisputable 
exactness. But the Nelson, of whom this is to Toe a short account 
kept no record of his origin, at least none has ever been found 
by which he could be traced to the Mother Country, ^rhatever 
his origin, there is not proof lacking that he was the progeni- 
tor of the vast number of Nelsons inhabiting the counties of 
Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester , and several who have migrated to 
more remote parts of this broad land. 

The name is prominently mentioned in the early annals 
of Virginia, and the members of the family, have, at the differ- 
ent periods of time taken an active interest in the affairs of 
that state, and in some instances have become identified with the 

intersets of the Nation, For patriotism and devotion to duty, 

o J a 

as they saw it, they have ever been foremost; giving freely of 

■v1 t" •- 

their time, for tune, and when necessary have sacrificed their 
lives for the benefit of the common weal. Those of the name 
in Massachusetts have been among the foremost in Art, Literature, 
Science, and government , and business. The earlier members of 
that family branch have left an example that could well be em- 
ulated by others.

^"hatever may "be said of the good qualities of the 
Nelsons in other parts of the country, in private life and put- 
lie affairs, those of the name in New York have not heen lax 
in emulating their kinsmen in the other colonies. These latter, 
like their namesaices, "braved the dangers of the wilderness with 
its wild beasts and savage hordes, to huild for themselves and 

all those who should come after them homes where they might be

secure from the persecutions more deadly and cruel than any 

they had to face in the wilds of the American Forests. 

In investigations of this kind, nothing can satisfy 

the mind which is not certain and clear of allreasonable doubt. 

In the present case, however, after a thorough search of and ex- 

amination into every available source of information, no such 

'. be 
absolute certainty has been attained; and yet nvimerous circum- 
stances have presented themselves, indicative of a probable hy- 
po thesis, which may not be uninteresting to those of the pres- 
ent time, nor useless in a further pursuit of the enquiry; to 
submit conclusions, with the hope that they may hereafter, be 
either verified or corrected by some more fortunate investiga- 

i ") (' V 

Unlike the other branches of the family, the New York 

Nelsons have been unfortunate in not keeping an unbroken line 

. but on.' 1 as re I t- 1 « *..:>-« c..f 

of descent, and more especially some account of their connection 

with the Mother Country; and the proof to establish our descent

from any branch in England has been, possibly, irrevocably lost

or destroyed. The one broken strand or missing link to bind 

the family with the English Tffelsons has been sought but nothing 

definitely established by which the connection could be made. 

One of the aims of this volume will be to repair the break, now 

so fatal to establishing the continuity.

The first of the name and progenotor of the New York 
family of Nelsons to come to this country settled,f iBst ,in Flat- 
lands and later at Kamaronecltt. The date of his coning and the 
name of the ship which carried him to these shores are alike 
unknown. From the prominence which his name takes in the af- 
fairs of the colony, one might be led to believe that he may 
have been present at the surrender of Nieu Amsterdam to the 
Duke of York's Fleet of war-ships, he may have seen Petros Stuy- 
vesant stalking about on his wooden leg urging on the Dutch sol- 
diers, and he may have witnessed the Dutch CJovernor's discomfit- 
ure in having to surrender the Province to the English. Wheth- 
er these things be true, History is silent. --'-^- — ^-i.-- 

Before giving the life or what we know of the life of 
John Nelson, in America, it may nut be amiss to review some of the 
political history of the time, and in addition try to convey some 
of the troubles with which the early colonists had to contend, 
not only against famine and failure of crops, v;ild beasts and 
wilder savages ;but against the plottings of secret enemies, far 
more formidable and deadly and greater to be feared, than any of 
the before mentioned in the wilds of America; these enemies were 
both political and religious. A short history of these events 
may be of some interest to the student of American History, 
More might be given but only such as relates to the history of 
the colonies and John Nelson, and the part each took in the con- 

A short time after his arrival in this country, John 
Nelson took up his residence in Flatlands. After a residence of 
several years in Flatlands, and having married the daughter of' 
Dirck Jans van der Vleet.he established himself on a farm in the 
town of Mamaroneck, Westchester County, in the then Province of

New York. This farm, which was situated in the vicinity of the 
residences of the Heathcotes, DeLanceys,and other prominent col- 
onial families , was kept in^ |he f gji4;^^^„ ^ox;, mguiy , generat ions ; and 
in a section of it set apart for the purpose, as it was KJCCKiOiXK 
the custom "before Cemetries were founded, were interred as they 
died, its, owners, thfir wijes and the ir^ children. ^,. ,,,,„ 

That the first settler was of Puritan Stock is undouht 
ed. The names "bourne by his children and Grand- children, which 
were mostly taken from the Old Testament, is almost sufficient 
evidence to prove the proposition. It is amazing that any par- 
ent, since the dawn of learning and civilization, should confer 
upon a^ son such a strange name as Polycarpus,or such an unwield- 
ly one as that of Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz. Even though the latter 
was the name, which hy the Command of the Lord, was written on a 
Great Roll, and was given to him "by the Prophetess(See Isa.,Chap. 
viii,vss.l & 4) ;the interpretation of which is"hastening to the 
Spoil," Yet that was one of the names in the Nelson family tw- 
hundred years and more ago; and v;ith such other names from the 
same source;as,Jaco"b, Joshua, Reuben, Enoch, Shadrach, and Mephibo- 
3eth,some of which continued in the family for many generations 
afterwards, is a marked piece of evidence that the founder of tis 
family was identified with the Parliament cause, against the Ja- 
cobites and Papists, 

Another fact, which has an historical interest, may be 
cited in support of this view, Pew persons at this day can re- 
alize the condition of affairs in this land, at the t ime that 
James had abdicated the Throne of England, and the Prince of Or- 
ange and his wife had been placed thereon. All Europe was in 
more or less of a ferment. The fires of religious zeal inten-^ 
sified the disturbances. The French Monarch, then in the height

of his power, had given hospitality to the Steuartsjand Prance 
was the spot where all sorts of schemes to overthrow the reign- 
ing Sovereign, and reestahlish the house of Stuart, were favoured 
and encouraged. The colonists, in the main, were hostile to the 
Stuarts, yet there were not wanting those here who sympathized 
with them. Although communication v/ith the mother country was 
infrequent, allegiance to it was firm. The settlements v;ere 
sparese and intercourse "between the different colonies diffi- 
cult. Who was to occupy the Throne was af-';as much interest to 
the people of the colonies, as to those at home. Their charac- 
ter and standing as loyal suhjects or as Rebels might depend ^d 
upon that question. Notwithstanding the Revolution in England, 
and the enthronement of William and Mary, and the settlement of 
the "Succession", yet the Jacobites were in close and secret 
bonds with each other; and in frequent correspondence with the 
"Pre tender", who was favoured by the smiles and promised the aid 
of the then most powerful Monarch of Europe. Nobles of high 
birth and great influence, and extensive connections, were favour- 
ing the movement. Great alarm existed throughout England at the 
discovery of this systematic plotting, and it was no wonder that 
the colonists were alarmed. 

In this condition of things, the inhabitants of West- 
chester County v^ere moved by the necessity to some action on 
their part. Accordingly they met and consulted, and at length 
published a declaration of their principles, which is to be found 
in the earlier records of the countj'-. In the substance of this 
declaration they professed their abhorrence of the assassinatiai 
of the Monarch, which it was believed had been threatened jabjurai 
the doctrine of "The Real Presence" ;expressed their opposition 
to the "House of Stuart", and their determination to uphold the

reigning Sovereign and the rule of Parliament; and it contained 
a pledge to maintain these principles, that was no less sacred 
and binding than that which subsequently distinguished the "Im- 
mortal Declaration of Independence," To it were subscribed the 
names of the most prominent citizens of the county, and one of 
those names was that of John Nelson, 

Recalling a previous statement that the names in the 
family indicate its Puritan origin, it will not be amiss, at this 
time, to esqilain the origin of the name "Polycarpus." Tradition 
that John Nelson emigrated from the town of Norfolic, England, be- 
tween the years of 1660 and 1665 ;and that the ship he embarqued 
in was driven by stress of weather upon the coast of France, 
The passengers were distributed among the peasants along the 
coast and in the smaller towns lintil such time as the ship could 
be repaired and proceed on her way. It appears , however, that 
John Nelson was given quarters in the family of a French Physi- 
cian, Polycarpus by name; and with him John stayed until the ship 
sailed. Agreeable to his Puritanic principles, John Nelson offer- 
ed to reimburse Dr .Polycarpus for his kindness towards himself 
and others, but Polycarpus refused any payment \7hatever ,but made 
this one request of John Nelson; that when he was married and 
settled in his American home, that John should name his first- 
born son, Polycarpus, How well John kept his word of promise wi 
v/ill be seen later on;but no account remains b;^ v;hich we can 
ever know that John Nelson ever informed Dr. Polycarpus that he 
had fived that naiae to his first-born, son.

Morretje is not given on the regular list of the Dutch Church 
Records, hut it is here given for convenience, having "been obtain- 
ed from another source. 

The name is found in the early records variously writ- 
ten as,Dirck Jansen Van Der Vliet, Derek Eanse Vander Vlicht,or 
Vliedtjor Viet, and sometimes Vlit. It vrould be worse than use- 
less to try to trace the name hy any one manner or form of spel- 
ling; since every Dutchman in the colony had a way and sometimes 
several v;ays of v/riting and pronouncing his own name, and their 
careleeeness in "blundering over what we now consider as of vi- 
tal importance, signified nothing to an;/ one but a Dutchman, and 
which must "be understood in Dutch;s.nd to make matters worse, no 
two Dutchmen were ever knovm to have understood the same utter- 
ance or transaction alike. The language is neither musical nor 
harmonious, "but it is charming in its makeup, so much so that it 
does not require a very great stretch of the imagination for one 
to make up his mind as to its value commercially. The very 
structure of the language, and their manner of dealing in mat- 
ters of trade prompted Leigh Hunt to break loose in the follow- 
ing bit of slander on the Dutchman's honesty: 

"In matters of commerce , 'tis the fault of the Dutch, 
In giving too little and taking too much," 
It is not surprizing that John Nelson should, among 
a people who did not pronounce their names the same way twice 
a day, almost lose his identity, Ee may have endeavoured to pre- 
vent any great number of mistakes in the spelling or pronnoun- 
ciation of his name, and if he did he most signally failed in 
the attempt j as will "be seen in the following variations of spel- 
ling. In Flatlands he v/as known as Jan Eli2en,Jans Elizen,Jans 
Elsen,Jan Nelsie a.nd Jan Nelsejas will "be seen in the following:

Of the private life or public services of John Nelson 
in Flatlands very little is knovm outside of what is recorded 
in the Dutch Church Records of Brooklyn and Flatlands, The on- 
ly interest that attaches to to this man at this time and place 
is the various names he bore among his Dutch neighbours, or the 
various misspellings and pronoiinciations of his name. Frequent- 
ly he must have smiled to himself on the "Amenities" of loving 
and marrying a Dutch girl and having to ES endure the language

he probatlv did not under stand, but nothing is certain about his 
sense of humour ever having been brought to the surface by the 
uncertain meanings of that language to any but a Dutchman, Y?hat- 
ever laay have been his opinions of his wife's relatives , friends 
and neighbours, will, in all probability, have to remain unknown 
to the descendants of that remarkable pair. 

Very little data has been secured, even by the most 
careful searching of records, and only one headstone , that of his 
son,Polycarpus ,has been found to throw any light upon the begin- 
nings of the family. As some proof, at least, must be adduced to 
esta.blish descent and claims to descent ,v/hat proof already ex- 
ists is here given with the hope that it v/ill suffice until more 
of a substantial nature is found v/ill establish a stronger hold 
upon the credulity of the reading public. 

As already stated, John Nelson v/as not John Nelson all 
through his life;for,v/^ile he lived in Platlands v/ith his Dutch 
wife, and among her Dutch relatives and neighbours , he v/as some- 
body else, if the manner in which his name was spelled and pro- 
out some o-f ' -i 
nounoed by those good Burghers. But v/hen he appeared on his ovm 

farm in Mamaroneck v/e hear no more of his Dutchyness,and here 
he became once more the John Nelson of former days, and the Nelse 
Elsen,Elizen,etc. ,of former days forever disappeared from his 
family name. While in Platlands none of his children v/ere bap- 
tized Nelson, but with the loose perversions of that name, as 

in 1' 
has already been stated; and it was not until he had settled at 

Mamaroneck does the perfect name of Nelson appear in connection 

with any of his family. The names of his children are given 

as they v/ere recorded on the various Church Baptismal rolls of 

the Dutch Church of Brooklyn, and their identity can only be made 

out by their Phonetic sounds, and not their Authography:

Right here it is necessary to pause and straighten 
out some of the inexplicable affairs of this family. As stated 
above Eli was christened in the Platbush Church sometime after 
his father had removed to Mamaroneck,v;hich latter event occurr- 
ed sometime previous to 27 July 1683, for on this date John Nel- 
son purchased lands from John Richbill and v/ife Ann, Subsequent 
ly he served on the Grand Jury of Westchester county 1 August 
1688; was Overseer of Mamaroneck in 1697; and Constable in 1699,

various town committees, and alvmys with the prefix of "J<Ir,'',a

A low hill in the town of Mamaroneck, called "Nelson's 
hill" perpetuates the name. It was made historically memorahle 
during the Revolutionary War for the surprize and defeatjhy 
Colonel SmallwoodjOf a large body of British Troops stationed,} 
there under Eajor Rogers. This property has since passed thro- 
ugh the Horton,Ryer, Barley and Stanley families, to the present 
owner and proprietor , Benjamin Brown, Esq, The house occupies a 
beautiful situation on the slope of the hill, overlooking Long 
Island Sound and Mamaroneck Bay, This place is remarkable for 
a distinct Echo, the true object of which appears to be the op- 
posite residence on Heathcote Hill, In the still dewy evenings 
of summer, when the air is elastic and a dead stillness prevails, 
every word spoken in the neighbouring house is plainly re-echo- 
ed from the northern bank. "Echo", says ^/hite,"has always been 
so amusing to the imagination that poets have personified her, 
and in their hands has been the occasion of many a beautiful 
fiction ;nor need the gravest man appear ashamed to be interest- 
ed in such a phenomenon, since it may be the subject of mathe- 
matical calculation or philosophical inquiry."

ovm deposition v/hile serving as ConstaTole in Mamaroneck , in 1680. 
The inscription on his tombstone gives the date of his birth as 
21 July 1680. His life from his infancjr was spent in Mamaronedc 
where he was elected Constable, 2 April 1712, and Overseer of 
Hi^.ways,7 April 1719. Besides his homestead in Mamaroneck, he 
held lands in Dutchess county purchased from Anthony Rutgers, 
Jacob Goelet,and Charles LeRoy, attorneys for David Jameson and 
others. The "David Jameson and others" constituted a company 
kno'A-n as "The Great Nine Partners," The history of the Great 
Nine Partners is interesting in that the gentlemen who composed 
the coTWfiRny were an influential body in the Colony, Its histo- 
ry runs as follows:- "On the 27 May 1697 , William, Prince of 
Orange, and the III of England, "Defender of the Faith", etc., 
granted a patent to a tract of land, lying in the towns of Clin- 
ton and Hyde Park, Dutchess County, in the Province of New York, 
to Nine men of v,'ealth and influence. They were: 
Colonel Caleb Heathcote, 
Lt.Col, Henry Palkins. 
Major Augustine Graham. 
Mr. William Creed. 

" David Jameson, 
■^ ■'■^"•••i-James Emmette. 

" John Areteon 
"'■ " ^ " James Marshall. 

" Henry Tenyck, 
The above named gentlemen were the original owners of 
the tract of land commonly knoAvn as "The Great Nine Partners", 
and lying in the towns of ClintonCnov/ Hyde Park) and LaGrange,in 
Dutchess County, In consideration for this grant , the owners 
were to pay an annual rental of three pounds of current money,

of the Province of New York; to be paid on the first day of the 
"Annunciation of Our Blessed Virgin Mary" , (llarch 25th)at the 
City of New York." This should "be sufficient proof that there 
were no Nelsons concerned in the purchase of the original grant; 
a traditional error that for a long time passed as current in 
the family. And not only has the family held to the erroneous 
idea, hut writers of histories (for sale) have the matter as a fact 
without ever looking up the proofs of v/hat they were raving 
ahout. It was thirty- three years after the grant was made that 
Polycarpus Nelson purchaseddn 1736) thirteen-hundred and four 
acres of land lying within the dreat Nine Partner Tract, lying 
on Crum-Elhow Creek, in the town of Clinton. On 31 August 1736, 
he sold the Northern portion of his purchase to his brother 
Francis. Ot of this purchase, Francis gave to his eldest son, 
Reuben, a farm of one-hundred and eighty- two acres, lying on Grumr- 
Elbow Creek, 13 November 1750, lliis farm remained in the family 
ujitil 1887, a period of one-hundred and thirty-seven years, when 
it finally passed to other owners, For the final distribution 
of the remaining property of Polycarpus, see his Will in Appendix 

According to IfAss Pamelia Dougherty, a grand-daughter 
of Thomas, who was a son of Polycarpus ' ,a quakeress,born in 1800, 
living in Mamaroneck in 1887, writing to I^r. James Nelson, at 
Br idgeport, Conn. , relates the following :Polucarpus was a tanner 
by trade, and it was while serving as Constable that he was kill- 

/ -> - 

\ 'O ■ 

ed "by one of his own workmen whom he was sent to arrest ;while 
Polycarpus was reading the Warrent of arrest the v/orkraan raised 

the tanner's cleaver .struck Polycarpus v/ith its sharp edge on 

a' i )■.'■■ ' -■■■- ; 

the head, killing him instantly, 19 December 1738. The quaint 

stone v/hich marked his grave on "Nelson Hill" is represented in 

another place, and though removed therefrom, is still in existance.

N/85 -' 

record in the Flatlands Dutch Church gives the date 14 Decemher 

1684, and, therefore, iy might be safely inferred that he was horn 

on Longlsland, The place and date of his death have not been 

ascertained, nor is the name of his wife known. The histpry of 

his descendants is very fragmentary;but,however , it is stated 

that a great number of the Nelsons of Westchester and Putnam 

counties are his descendants, but this is only an inference, as 

these people have no knowledge of who their progenitor was, and 

in many instances, they do not seem to care. So far there is 

cause to believe that Eli had two sons: 

20. Eli Nelson. 

21, William Nelson. 

(7) Francis Nelson, yoimgest son of John and Eendrickje(Vander 
Vleet) Nelson, was born, probably in Mamaroneck, about 1691;died 
after 13 November 1750. Until about 1 May 1716, he resided at 
Mamaroneck( "The Place of Rolling Stones") , at that time he pur- 
chased of Colonel Caleb Heathcote , lands in the Manor of Scars- 
dale, and shortly removed thereto. Ke was assessor of Scarsdale 
in 1723. He conveyed, by consent of his wife Ann, 8 October 1733, 
all his lands in Scarsdale, which he had purchased from Colonel 
Heathcote, to William Barker of I/[amaroneck;and removed to the 
Highlands of Dutchess County, which had been accomplished by the 
31 August 1736. He purchased of his brother ,Polycarpus, an in- 
terest in the Great or Lower Nine Partners, a certain tract of 
land(Vide Supra) . iVIr. Nelson was one of the first cojamissioners 
of roads for that part of SQL Dutchess which is now Putnam coun- 
ty, 1744, In 1747 Francis Nelson's name disappears from the tax- 
list of the South Ward of Dutchess County, and in 1750 it last 
appears on the County Records.

styled "Captain." Hisown will bears the date of 10 February 
1796, and names wife Phoebe, and the children named above. In 
his will he made one except ion, and that was to give to his 
daughter, Jemima, a set of curtains that formerly belonged to 
her mother. Just where and by v/hat means Caleb Nelson se- 
cured the title of "Captain" remains to be determined. 

Of the seven daughters of Francis Nelson(7)no mention 

is made of them other than their names. No dates of births or 

marriage or death of any one of them has ever been found. But 

this disposition of the daughters of a family is not an isola- 

of Cor t land t 
ted instance, of this one particular family or any branch of any 

other family, -the fault appears in every other family history 

known to the compilers of Genealogical works, , No other excuse 

can be offered for neglecting the girls than that "they have 

just been forgotten and neglected," 

(35) Justus Nelsonthe seventh son and youngest child of Francis 
Nelson, and certainly by wife Ann(7) ;was born 21 February 
1737, probably in the Highlands. His home was in Philipstovm. 
He died, intestate, on the anniversary of his birth, 21 Febru- 
ary 1803, and is buried in a marked grave in the beautiful 
church- 3'ard of St. Philip's, at Garrison 's-on Husdon, His es- 
tate v.'as administered upon by his son, Cornelius Nelson and 
his son- in- law, John Warren, both of Philipstown, 1 March 1803. 
He married, first, about 17 56, Mary, daughter of Joseph Haight

(36) Absalom Nelson, eldest son of Maher-Slialal-Hash-Bas Nelson 

(10) , was 'born probably in 1752, and possibly at Mamaroneck. 

The name, Absalom Nelson, is frequently found in the "Muster 
1. ir B. 
Rolls!' of the Militia, of Dutchess a.nd Westchester counties, 

and from the location of residence of this man and the re- 

( cruiting districts from which the Sixth and Seventh regiments 

were taken, it might be taken as a certainty that this man 

did yeoman's service for his country when most needed, Fe 

married, before 5 November 1776, Esther ,Y;idow of Samuel Warren, 

( iV} ) if' i'i O i 

of Philipsto^ira,and daughter of John Rogers by his wife Hes- 

ter Vepveelen. Absalom Nelson and his wife later returned 

to the Warren homestead in the Highlands , which in Erskine's 

Military map of 1781 is marked as "Nelson's Tavern", but v,'hich 

I'tr S.Livingston described, in a letter of 12 July 1766, to her 

husband, Judge Livingston, as "Warren's" , and here Mrs Nelson 

.•-,o.i':. , r-or: 
died, leaving an only child: 

103, William Nelson, born, according to his tom.bstone,2 Ilarch 
1776, but according to the Warren Bible, 1 May 1778, 

I»i[r .Nelson married, secondly, Sarah Teed,v/ho sur- 
vived him a.nd married for second husband, Samuel Storm, She 
died 12 August 1852,aet,68 ^/-ears and 20 days. 

In his will 28 November 1817 ,Ii[r, Nelson is described 
as of Greenburg, His legatees wre his wife Sally and three 
sons, Willisjn, Absalom D.,and Oscar G, His tombstone in the 
Cemetery at White Plains reads:- "In Memory of Absalom Nel- 
Bon.who departed this life 12 December 1817 , in the Sixty- 
Fifth year of his age. This monument is erected to his m.era-

The Records of the Rombout Presbyterian Church give i 
the date of Francis Nelson's baptism 6 May 17 50, that of his 
sister Susanna 30 August 1752, and that of Mary 16 June 1754; 
Nothing is said anjwhere about his Christian life, but, if we 
may judge a man's character, by the conduct of his children, 
it is safely to be inferred that his home life was that of 
a conscientious Christian gentleman ;f or, his influence, or that 
of his v/ife is still to be seen in the conscientious appli- 
cation of the principles of that Religion which was taught 
at the Old Rombout Church one-hundred years ago. 

The children of Francis and Sarah(Lyon)>Telson who liv- 
to maturity were Five in number. It was for a long time 
thought and taicen as a fact that five were all the children 
that belonged to this worthy couple, but from an Old Family 
Bible, lately come tdi light, the niupber is given as eight. Now 
there is a speculation going the rounds of the surviving memr 
bors of the family as to v/hy this matter had never been 
brought up and disposed of before. The answer is easy. The 
family, at an early day, 1819 to 1621, sold out their possess- 
ions in Dutchess county, N. Y. , and removed to the Far West in a 
vain search for the Golden Fleece, and in the struggle for 
existance that followed, had no time to talk over home matters 
The names of the children are as follows:

(85) Phineas Nelson, eldest son of Ge.ptain Caleb Nelson(27) ,and 
loertainly by his first wife, Esther Haig]at,was born, probably, 
at Pishkill Landing, 8 March 1762;baptized in the Rombout 
Presbyterian Church, 9 February 17 64; married, in 1781, Hannah 
Lane,a Q,uakeress;she was born 28 October 1761, and it is said, 
of French Parentage, and died 25 ITovember 1854, at South Dan- 
by,N.Y, Phineas died at South Danby,N.Y, ,2 July 1844. Al- 
though Hannah was born a Q,uaker she later became a Methodist, 
while Phineas found it more convenient to renounce his form- 

fpr allegiance, and becaaie a Baptist. They left Fishkill -;^.„ 
the Autumn of 1801, and with eight of their children, Sarah 
having married Christopher Haight, remained behind, the mother 
riding horseback and carrying her baby in her arras, the house- 
hold articles being drav/n in Ox-Carts, made the . 
Genesee. Here they lived for some time a near neighboixr to 
that Arch Heretic, Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism. 
Phineas Nelson's opinion of Joseph Smith was not one that 
, ,.,,woijld excite admiration^in any., one ..towards, the founder of, a 

^new Faith. Phineas Nelson, Jr. , says that Smith was a lazy, 
vulgar .licentious drea,mer, illiterate and superstitious. How- 
ever much these qualities may have been Smith's own, he was 
not long in securing a few followers, when he went west and 
History teaches us the rest- 
After living at Genesee a short time, Phineas moved to 

iSouth Danby,in Tompkins County, New York, then an unbroken wil- 
derness, and where they cleared a farm on which they lived to 
the end of their days. Issue:

died in the Highlands, 1 September 1837. 

Blake's History of Putnam County, New York, published 
in 1849, ends a lengthy notice of Jolin , Warren, Esq, , in these 
words: "He aspired to no higher distinction than that of a 
plain practical farmer, which he was. The purity of his mo- 
tives and the honesty of his heart were never questioned; and 
in all the relations of life, he never gave just cause for 
offence to his neighbour. He died regretted and beloved by 

all who knew him, in 1837, in the seventy-wecond j^ear of his 
-j Esther "-" 

age. His children, so far as we know them, inherit his vir- 
tues," Children were all born in Philipstown:

Nelson, and his associates made the rounds of the Courts, as 
it was -then called "Riding the Circuit." But Reuben was not 
long to enjoy the distinction he had won in so "brief a space 
of time in the nev; country;his polished manners and accom- 
plishments; his education and knowledge of the law;his youth •• 
and vigour ;his recollections of the past and forecasting the 
future; dignified manhood and winning ways, were of no avail 
against the jealousies that arose against him from his less 
fortunate associates. In the most civilized parts of our 
country no man can can he said to he safe from assault whifch 
may end in his deat^either is he free from suspicion when cd 
once the fatal sentence of misgiving is pronounced against 
him; if such be the case in a civilized part of our country 
it is to be expected of a new settlement that life v/ould be 
of less value; social standing, education and high family con- 
nections are no proof against the bullit of the assas- 
sin;but the opposition in professional circles by high attain 
ments and superior abilities would naturally tend to excite 
the jealousies and fire the imagination of those with deprav- 
ed tendencies to deeds of daring in the shadow of the forest 
or in the more desired time the shades of the night. Where 
jealousies abound and no attempt is made to hide them, suspi- 
cion is bound to fasten itself upon those who were most ex- 
pressive of their feelings. It was while riding the circuit 
of the Courts, and when Reuben Uelson was in the height of 
his professional career that he was struck down, while riding 
in company with one of his professional brethren to the Court 
then being held in Clark county, Indiana. No proof could be 
produced against his companion, but suspicion was sufficient- 
ly strong, that he was openly accused of Nelson's murder by 
his most intimate associates. But better counsel prevailed

and the usual mode of punishment dealt out to suspicious per- 
sons was not put in practice against the supposed slayer of 
Reuben Helson. Reuben's entire family v/ere acquainted with 
his associate on this journey, and they never "believed him 
guilty of the charge, but alv^ays believed that Reuben's horse 
stumbled and threw him against the side of a tree where he 
expired. His associate stated afterwards that the first he 
knew that an accident had happened to Nelson was when his 
horse came gallopping by, riderless. Reuben's death occurred 
sometime in November 1825, He never married,

237 Caroline Nelson, born in 1827;died in 1847 , unmarried, 

238 Mary Nelson, "born in I830;died in 1850,xmiaarried, 

239 James Harvey Nelson, "born in 1835; learned the Printei^fcs 
trade, and was drowned, while in bathing, a,t Lockport, Ind- 
iana, 4 July 1854; unmarried. 

It might be added here, for the benefit of inquir- 
ies that Amos Nelson learned the Tanner's Trade while in 
TDutchess County, and after going to Indiana he added to his 
handicraft that of Shoemaker, which was then looked upon as 
a useful accomplishment. 

(124) Franklin Nelson,yovmgest son of Francis and Sarah(Lyon) 
Nelsonf 50)was born at Clinton(now Hyde-Park) ,New York, 8 Sep- 
tember 1797, He attended school in his native village, and 
later entered the Poughkeepsie Academy, and was here vigour- 
ously pursue ing his studies when the War of 1812 broke out. 
To young Franklin Nelson the Coiontry's Call to arms appear- 
to his Patriotic mind more urgent than the pursuit of knowl- 
edge. Accordingly he left shhool and enlisted in Captain 
Samuel Nelson's Company, in the same Regiment of which his 
kinsman, Joseph Nelson, was Colonel, The regiment immediately 
went to the defense of the City of New York, where Colonel 
Nelson succumed to an attack of Typhoid Fever, 3 November 1812 
The regiment was then removed to Staten Island where it re- 
mained until the close of Hostilities, when it was disbanded. 
Realizing the necessity of learning some trade, Franklin Nel- 
son took up the combined trades of Tanner and Shoemaker, in 
both of which he became very proficient , and which served him 
to good purpose in later years.

In company with, his mother , Harvey, Amos, and sister, 
El iza'oeth, Franklin Nelson set out, 1819, towards the Great 
West, then filling up with people from all parts of the Union, 
They travelled as far as Marietta, Ohio, where the Mother sick- 
ened and died, 28 Octo"ber 1821. The family now left without 
a Mother's counsel, decided that Marietta, was not the place 
for their future home, set their faces once more towards the 
Setting Sun; they travelled through the untrodden wilderness, 
swimming their horses and oxen over swollen streams, penetrat- 
ed the forest then swarming with wild beasts and still wild- 
er savages; passes through where Cone innati, Ohio now stands 
which was then hut a trading post and a few log-huts ;pressed 
on across the Ohio River into Kentuckey and down its south- 
ern banks, crossed the Kentuckey River, and made their way to 
Palls City, now Louisville, then a small trading post, crossed 
the River again to the place where New Albany now stands, and 
followed the trail to the Capitol of Indiana, Coryd on. After 
pasiiing through the site of New Albany they camped over-night 
on the farm then being put in order by the Scribner3,'.7ho had 
journied thither from Albany, New York. Arriving at Corydon, 
t hey found the crush for farms had consumed all the choice 
lots in that section of the state, but a few sections remain- 
ed that were, what might becalled, desirable. 

Amos seized on a small tract of land two and one-half 
miles east of Corydon, on the soixth bank of Little Indian 
Creek, while Franklin went still a mile and a half farther 
eastward to a beautiful valley called "Spring CJlen" . And 
it was rightly named "Spring Glen", be cause, through it ran 
a small creek which had its origin on the farm, and was the 
outcropping of a small creek that sank out of sight about

six miles to the east, on a farm belonging to tiae Gresiiaia3«ii 
The chief reason why it may have "been called "Spring Glen" 
was for the reason that ahout one-hundred springs were found 
along it on either side, from its source to where it emptied 
into Little Indian Creek. And where it emptied into little 
Indian Creek, was the yearly camping ground of the Misuni Ind- 
ians. Hither they came to hold their councils of ?/ar,chantaiju 
their Far Songs, put on their War paint, and steal away in the 
night to pillage the country round ahout. Many were the sto- 
ries told of the dreadful week passed by the inhabitants of 
the surrounding country when the Miamis held their last coun- 
cil on those grounds. Their War Whoops were louder and more 
threatening, their council more securely guarded than at any 
other time, and their attitude towards the settlers more an- 
tagonistic than at any time previous. Every house secured . 
itself against invasion, but they were not molested; the Tribe 
of Warriors stole away one night and passed to the westward, 
then turning northward they fell, the next night, upon the de- 
fenceless inhabitants of Scott County and massacred every 
man , woman , and child, sparing neither old age not infancy, 

TPra^l^^ Nelson set about, clearing a piece of ground 
to which he had laid claim, and erected a house for himself 
and built a Tannery and shoe- shop for himself and his brother 
Amo^, A.t first ii^ ^did not de,YO.te much time to farming, be- 
cause of the heavy timber that grew on every part of his 
tract;but,bye and bye, when opposition in the Tanning of hides 
aj;d the mining of shoes made those industries less prof ita- 
ble,he turned his attention to the forest with its trees of 
huge Oaks, Hickories, Beeches, and many others, including the 
Sugar-Maple, of which there were about one- thousand trees on

the Quarter-SectiondsO Acres), Here on this farm Franklin 
Nelson spent almost sixty years of his lifejand from that of 
strong and vigorous manhood to the evening of his life he 
toiled year in and years out in the struggle to rear his fam- 
ily. And on the 2 May 1882, worn out with the toils and tri- 
als of nearly 85 years he laid down the burden of life, at the 
home of his daughter, Mrs. Socratez J, Bence; leaving behind him 
such a record of struggle against adversity, a life of honesty 
and uprightness, patriot ism and self-sacrifice, as this world- 
seldora witnesses, in this or any other age. It is true that 
his life was not spent in the Arena of politics, and except 
for a period of less than trhee years, in the war of 1812, his 
time was spent in the domestic pursuits of home and fireside. 

In 1826, Mr, Nelson married Rachel Smith, a sister of 
the wife of his brother, Amos, Rachel was born 15 July 1807; 
At Wytheville, Virginia, and died at New Albany, Indiana in Aug-

William Nelson: 

The story of the life of William Nelson would not laalf "be told 
were there left out of it a summary of the virtues of her whose in- 
fluence was, for almost three- score years (seven and fifty years) the 
controlling factor in his home, and whose wise counsels were ever 
ready and helpful when occasion required; and whose fine qualities 
were her distinsuishing heritage to her family. It can in all truth 
he said, and with reverence he it written, that humility, charity, 
truthfulness, were her prime characteristics. Her conscientious 
scruples were firm and lofty, though never austere. She had a strong 
sense of right , coupled with perfect charity towards other people; 
inflexible in principle, she was gentle in practice. Intellectually 
brilliant and accomplished she had a strong vein of common-sense 
and practical wisdom, great penetration into character , and a goodly 
fund of quiet hamour, • 

" She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth 
forth her hands to the needy." (Proverhs XXXI, 20 ) .

236, of Free and Accepted Ifa.sons,and at a meeting of the Lodge 
held at Philipstown, Saturday evening, February 19, 1859, his 
death was announced "by the presiding officer in feeling lan- 
guage, and, on motion, a committee was appointed to draft res- 
olutions expressive of the sorrow of the Lodge, The resolu- 
tions drafted and adopted were as follows; 

"Dearly Beloved Brethren: 

"It is with pain that we have heard of the death of ou* 
worthy Brother,Sylvanus Farren,\7ho expired in the village 
this afternoon ahout two o'clock, 

"Again and again within the past few months have we been 
called upon to mourn the loss of our departed brethren, but 

'<: i^.y .■ I-:,:.. >;)^;_ ■_■ ■ - :..•::. ■ ■■ ■ .■ , ■ ■■ , 

the story of sadness has come up to us from a distance, and 

r 8 '■ 
while we have been bowed down with sorrow, yet we have felt 

more prepared for it; but now, indeed has deAth knocked aud- 
ibly at the door of our Lodge, and we have beheld one of our 

a: nltv, 

most esteemed and tenderly beloved brethren torn from our 

very midst, and the voice which we all so much loved to hear 

in life has been hushed in the cold and icy embrace odt death, 


" 'Sad images of the stern agony and pall 

And breathless darkness and the narrow house 
Warren Is r.c 

Makes us to shudder and grow sick at heart,' 
It is not consonant with the present purpose to eulogize 
Brother Warren; his life, whose daily scenes have been enact- 
ed in our very midst, is its ovm best eulogy. 

It has fallen to the lot of but few men to fill so lar^ 
a sphere of home usefulness as Brother Warren. In all move- 
ments for the amelioration of suffering he was ever among the 
foremost. In all his dealings he was upright and just, and

ently requested by the people of Bridgeport to open a Private 
school. Her school was a success from the start, and it was 
soon found necessary to select larger and more commodious 
quarters where it would be possible to accominodate the in- 
creased number of her pupils. The school grew and prosper- 
ed, and finally was laid the foundation of the famous "Gol- 
den Hill Seminary", of Bridgeport , Connecticut. But its pros- 
perity- was soon to be blighted, while in the height of its 
usefulness, in 1895, an epidemic of Typhoid fever broke out 
and laid many of the pupils lowjliiss Nelson did all she 
could to revive confidence in her novj ruined school, but to 
no purpose. She had finally to give up her life's work, the 
weight of years and broken in health compelled her to retire 
to private life, where she busied in literary work for which 
she was eminently qualified by early education and long ex- 
perience as a teacher. At the foundation of Vassar College 
at Poughkeepsie,New York, Miss Nelson v/as offered the Lady 
Principalship,of that institution, by its founder , Matthew 
Vassar, but she declined the offer, giving as her reason for 
refusing so tempting an offer, in her own words: "I preferred 
to reigh supreme in my ovm little realm." Funeral services 
over her remains were held in the South Cobgregational Church 
Bridgeport; burial in Rheinbeck Cemetery,

Mr. Jay, but from the fact that at his death, Mr. Jay was a res- 
ident of his native county, Westchester, and his sons, William and 
Peter Jay, were personal friends of his father. In the same yeai^

District Attorney; under whom he enjoyed unusual advantages for 
acquire Ing professional knowledge, and making a large acquaint- 
ance, which proved of inestimable value in his subsequent career, 
Having successfully passed the required examinations in the va- 
rious branches of the law, before the Supreme Court, then holding 
its sessions in Albany ;he was, in ZHJK January 1840, admitted to 
practice, and received his Diploma as an Attorney-at-Law." He 
thenformed a copartnership with his father, and remained connec- 
ted with him in active practice, for more than ten years, and v/as 
extensively engaged with him in the trial of Causes, both Civil 
and Criminal, in the Coiinties of Westchester, Pvitnara and Rock- 
landjmani/- of which were highly important in their character , and 
excited much public interest at that time. 

In 1842 he spent several months travelling in Europe; 
visiting the various points of interest in England, Prance, Ital- 
ly, Switzerland and the German Confederacy; carrying with him 
nximerous letters of introduction to men of note in the "Pield 
of Letters," Ke enjoyed exceptional advantages, and made the 
acquaintance of most of the distinguishe men, in the countries 
v;hich he visited, 

In.1851 President Fillmore appointed him to the Of- 
fice of Chief- Justice of the Supreme Court, for the United States 
in the Territory of Oregon, and he proceeded thither by way of 
the Isthmus of Panama, in the month of Ma,rch of that yeara. To 
this high official position he brought talents of a superior 
order ; together with a thorough knowledge of the Law, As a con- 
sequence, his judicial duties, some of which were novel and try- 
ing, were discharged with ability, impartiality and dignity;and 
secured for him the respect of all good and respectable citizens 
in that Territory, In tha latter part of 1853 he returned to

the Atlantic Coast, and though keeping his old Residence in 
Peeksklll,he established himself in business in Hew York City, 
and there entered upon an active practice in his profession, 
taking a high standing at the bar, and being employed as prin- 
ciple coimsel in many important suits, brought in the various 
Cour^ts of the state; some of which went through the gradations 
of the courts. 

During the Civil 7/ar, Judge Nelson was a firm 
supporter of the Federal Government , and was well known for his 
zeal in behalf of the Union, He was elected to membership in 
the "Union Leagae Club", soon after its format ion, but as his 
residence out of the city, would prevent him from attending its 
sittings, he declined to accept the membership to v/hich he was 
elected. In the early stages of the War, he was appointed by 
Governor Morgan as a member of the y7ar..Corrii'iittee,for_^j:th.e- Coun- 
ties of Westchester, Putnam and Rockland, and faithfully serve(^_ 
as such during the continuance of the entire struggle. 

In 1858 Judge Nelson received the Republic^aja nonina-. 
tion for the Supreme Court Judgeship, in the second district, ., 
his associate on the ticket being the Honourable Lucian Birds- 
e;/e; but the Democratic nominees, lie sseur§ .Brown and Lott,were 
successful in that heavily Democratic District, In 1860 he 
was honoured with the Republican nomination for Congress, for 
district composed of the counties of Westchester and Rockland, 
but owing to the district being largely Democratic, and though^ 
he was greatly ahead of his ticket, he was not able to overcome 
the heavy party vote against him. Since then Judge Nelson has 
not been a candidate for political honours jbut has devoted him- 
self wholly to his extensive legal practice.

In 1869 he was elected "by the AlTimni of Williams Col- 
lege, a Trustee of that Institution, and he diligently discharged 
the duties of that off ice, until the expiration of his official 
terra in 1874, when he declined a re-election. 

In all molirements JEC in society, Judge Nelson has al- 
ways been in s;^/Tnpathy v/ith those of progress and freedom. In 
politics he has long been identified with the Republican Party, 
yet was never so much of a partisan as to be unable to see both 
sides of a question, and to maintain relations of friendship with 
many whose political views and associations differed frcra his 
own. On several occasions he has shown much sagacity in fore- 
casting the political future. As an evidence of this, as well ■, 
as of his good judgement , tolerant spirit and patriotic sense; &• 
we quote from a letter shown to us, and written 14 November 1884, 
to a friend in Iowa; who had become alarmed at the possibility ~ 
of Blaine's defeat, which he supposed would be followed by a long 
train of disasters to the country, Mr, Nelson wrote in part: 

"As you feared, Blaine is beaten. In my judgement there 
will be a considerable change in Office-holding, Not so much in 
the general policy of the government. The first effect will be 
business stagnation. Capitalists, for a time, will do nothing. 
They are always timorous, and they will await to see what the 
effects of a change of administration! -will be. Just now, they 
are v/aiting to see what v^ill be done in Congress this winter; 
they will then wait to see what the new Administration, when in- 
ducted into office, will say through the President , and after that 
what the new Congress is going to do. In the meantime, business 
will get over the present shock, and will all the while be adapti 
ing itself to existing states , -changing with the times, During 
all this time we will have to ES eat, be clothed, to be sheltered.

a,nd all the manifold operations of life will have to go on. We 
will retain our faculties and exercise our energies ;v/ill still 
have our hopes and our ains,and in a little while, v/e will forget 
all ahout the hloWja.nd the anxieties and fears it excited, I am 
deeply sorry for I'r. Blaine's defeat jhut if a deraocrat had to 
he elected,! prefer !1r. Cleveland to any other. He impresses 
me as being honest , painstaking and faithful to his own ideas 
of right. He is surrounded and influenced hy the best class 
of democrats. \Vith their advice and with his sturdiness of 
wilKapproaching nearly to obstinacy) ,and the sense of obliga- 
tion he feels towards recalcitrant Republicans, who it must be 
admitted, are honest and patriotic in the niain; though, as I think, 
greatly illjudging,we ought not to have much fear of the future. 
Mr, Cleveland was elected Sheriff of Erie County, as a Reformer; 
Mayor of Buffalo, as a Reformer jCrovernor of New York, at; a. Reform- 
er; and is now elected President, as a Reformer. I believe he 
will, whenever he makes a change in off ice, endeavour to appoint 
competent and honest officers; that he v/ill favour "Civil Ser- 
vice" ; oppose wild schemes and all jobbery, and in general, do 
what he believes to be his duty. The "Tariff ".no doubt, will 
be overhauled and changed, and he will favour it;but it v/ill be 
done carefully, and the best interests of the Coxmtry at large 
will be considered. This is not to be an administration for 
experiments. The efforts of those who shape its policy, will 
be to inspire the community at large, with confidence in the cor- 
rectness of the opinion, which led to the change of Administra- 
tion, -to increase the number of its supporters, from the class 
of people, on whom party allegiance lightly rests, and v/ho are 
more interested in "Good Government" , than party success ;and thiB 
to continue, if not perpetuate, its power. Should this be the

case, there v/ill te heard (but for a while only) howls of disap- 
pointment from that class of Democrats, who have struggled for 
power, merely for the sake of office. I misjudge if the "Solid 
South" does not go into"Political Disintegration" "before two 
years of the "New Administration" shall have passed, V/hat mor- 
tifies rae more than anything else, is that my countrymen have 
elected to the second office within their gift, that self-com- 
placent looking old "Copperhead" from Indiana (Thomas A. Hendrix) 
who,v/hen the country Yra.s in extreme peril, was opposing Ilr. Ldn- 
ccln's best efforts to preserve the Government,- was the coadju- 
tor of Valla.dingham,and sympathized with those striking at the 
"Life of the Nation." With respect to l^. Cievelar.d, there is .- 
no such record against him. lam willing to believe that he v/as 
for the Government in its hour of danger, I am willing to thirJc 
that his habits are not such as they sometimes, in party heat, 
have been represented to be. If he would marry an intelligent 
and worthy v/oman,and install her as Mistress of the "White- 
House", it Vi'ould be such a pledge to the people, a.s would remove 
all apprehension, a,nd in that respect jfrop: any quarter. There 
is no better way to keep straight an;/ man prone to err, than to 
have a loved and judicious wife. The "^liite-House" has hither- 
to been pure and stainless. The v/oraen who have been its con- 
trolling inmates graced it and honoured the Nation, It 
v/ould be deplorable, if it should be otherwise. The best thing 
that Mr, Cleveland could do, to remove any fears on the subject, 
would be to marry," 

The developements and events which have taken place, 
since the foregoing letter was v/ritten,when everything was in

Judge Nelson retains his fondness for tlae Latin Lan- 
guage, in which Virgil and Horace are his favorite Authors. They 
are 8-lways to he foiind on his ta.hle, ready to be taken up at a 
leisure moment. He has "been, and continues to he, a dilligent 
reader of the best works of English Literature. His fondness 
for Poetry began with his youth, and his facility for committing 
to raemor;/' and reciting favorite passages, has often been a won- 
der to his friends. Of American Poets, he holds liThittier in 
highest esteem, and from him, he ha.s often said, he derives his 
"Politics and Religion." He has alvirays been interested in the 
local history of the region where he was born, and spent the most 
of his life,an(J there is no event, that has occurred in that seo- 
tion,v/ith the details of which he is not familiar. He maj'' oft- 
en be seen at "^Phite Plains", in the office containing the Rec- 
ords of Festchester County poring over the early volumes, snd 
gleaning from that source, many facts full of interest to the 
Antiquarian Taste, and reflecting much historical light. 

As a lawyer, he holds a very high rank at the New York 
Bar, and is recognized by his brothers in the legal profession 
as possessing distinguished attainments. He is a fluent speak- 
er, a.nd has at his copimand a wealth of resource in argument and 
debate, which rarely fails to exert great influence in the Courts 
of Law. Possessed of a KIgK character strongly entrenched in 
uprightness, sound learning, large experience, both in the Courts 
and on the Bench, with exceptional powers of judgement ; Judge Nel- 
son deservedly occupies a high place in the professional and pub 
lie esteem. His life has been roarked by usefulness, integrity 
and honour, and his successes have been won by qualities which 
rarely fail to achive distinction and victory. 


Judge Nelson was",' for many years, until his removal to 
Brooklyn, an attendant at the First Pres"byterian Church, vrhere 
he was baptized, in his native village. On his removal to Brook- 
lyn he has "been attending the "Central Congregational** 'Ghurch 
of that City. In 1904, he returned to Peekskill.—

Augustus Roet)ling, WTaen General Gouverneur Kemhle Warren re- 
ceived the command of the Fifth Army Corps of the Army of the 
Potomac in the ¥far of the Rebellion he selected Colonel Roeb- 
ling as a member of his Staff. While visiting her brother in 
camp, Miss V/arren met her fut ire husband, and the meeting resulted 
in their marriage. At the close of the Civil War, Colonel Roeb- 
ling, accompanied by his wife, went to Europe to study submarine 
foundation Construction. \'/hile they were at Milhausen, Germany, 
their only child, John Augustus Roebling, Jr. ,nov/ of Ashville,

made their home in Trenton, Nev/ Jersey. 

Colonel Roebling assisted hi© father, John A. Roebling, in 
preparing the plans of the l^rooklyn Bridge, and upon the death 
of his father, which occurred at the beginning of its construc-

the Bridge involved novel features in engineerinr^ und rstood

had exi^ected to lead to glory and fame, to return home and he- 
gin a political fight which, however certain, must he still 
uncertain as to results until the final vote is counted. 

In 1867, Judge Nelson was sent as a delegate to the 
Constitutional Convention of this state. His conspicuous ser- 
vices at this convention resulted in his election to the of- 
fice of Secretary of State, in 1867, and his re-election two 
years later. He was urged to accept the honour a third time 
"but declined in favour of Diederich Wilier s. In 1881 he was 
elected a State Senator for his District. 

He was president of the Poughkeepsie Nev/s Company, Vice 
president of the Poughkeepsie City National Bank, and one of, 
its stockholders. 

Immediately upon his retirement from the office of 
Secretary of State in 1871, Judge Nelson opened a Law Office 
in New York City, where he had an extensive practice, trying 
many important cases, sopie of which went through the grada- 
tions of the Courts,
