Vol. XL. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1909. No. 1 


By Josiah Collins Pumpelly, A.M., LL.B. 

James William Beekman, a descendant of the old Knicker- 
bocker family of that name, was born in New York, Nov. 4, 1847, 
died at his country residence, "The Cliffs," Oyster Bay, Long 
Island, Aug. 7, 1908. 

He was the son of the late Hon. James William and Abian 
Steele Millidoler Beekman (1819-1897), and his grandparents 
were Gerard Beekman (1774-1833) and Catharine Saunders 

From these he traces his ancestry back through James Beek- 
man (1732-1807), William Beekman (1684-1770), Gerardus Beek- 
man (1653-1723), to Wilhelmus Beekman (1623-1707) and Katrina 
De Boog, who came to this country about 1645. 

Mr. Beekman was educated at Columbia University, was a 
student in the School of Mines and a graduate of the Law School 
in 1871. 

He was an Annual Member of The New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Society. He was also a member of The Saint 
Nicholas, Holland, Historical and Colonial Wars Societies, and a 
member of Union, Metropolitan, Knickerbocker, University, 
Century, New York Yacht, Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Clubs, 
the Down Town Association, Bar Association; President New 
York Dispensary; Governor New York Hospital and a member 
of the Collegiate Dutch Church, corner 29th Street and Fifth 

He was Lieutenant-Governor of the Society of Colonial Wars 
in the State of New York from 1895 to 1897; Deputy-Govennor 
from 1897 to 1902, and Governor from 1902 to 1904, and on his 
death a resolution was passed wherein it is said: " His high char- 
acter and personal charms inspired the abiding affection of all 
those who came in contact with him, and by his uniform courtesy, 
his respectful consideration and interest in the affairs of the 
Society he contributed much to its success." 

Mr. Beekman joined the New York Historical Society in 1886, 
and was one of the Executive Committee in 1903, and at the time 
of his death was a Trustee in the new building, in which under-

taking he "showed courage, zeal and great patience in bringing 
his plans to their outcome with marked success." His associates, 
mostly men who had known him through life, testify to his great 

From the able Secretary of the Holland Society the following 
interesting data has been received: " Mr. Beekman was President 
of the Holland Society, 1893-1894, and it was during his term of 
office that the Dutch cruiser Van Speyk visited these shores, and 
his participation in the hospitality extended to the Dutch visitors 
caused the Queen to confer upon him the decoration of the Order 
of Nassau, of which he was justifiably proud. His urbanity and 
bonhomie made friends of all whom he met, and it was but 
natural that he should receive the honors which fell to him in 
The Holland Society, as well as those conferred by the Saint 
Nicholas Society, in which his position as President (1890-1891) 
rounded out a term of service, beginning with the office of 
Steward and running up through the various Vice-Presidencies 
to the head of the official list. Among good fellows there was no 
more agreeable companion than he, and I can readily believe 
what one of his friends said, that "he had more friends than 
any other man of his acquaintance." 

From an interesting tribute written by Mr. Beekman's brother- 
in-law, an old friend of the writer, I quote the following: " Mr. 
Beekman not only appreciated the privilege of good birth but 
realized that it brought with it responsibilities. He keenly felt 
the " noblesse oblige " which belonged to his high social standing. 
He was careful and conscientious in the discharge of every duty, 
great or small. He required from others honesty and upright- 
ness in all business dealings, and when he did not find it he 
preferred severing negotiations although to his own personal 
disadvantage. In his social life, where he was facile princeps, 
he was never so happy as when he was making others happy. 
Few men have been members of more clubs and societies, and 
though mingling with every variety of man, he never by word or 
deed relaxed his high standard of living; also as a loyal citizen 
Mr. Beekman openly upheld all that was good in our government, 
and just as openly condemned bad government, be it either 
National, State or Municipal. 

In his official duties he was not only constant and painstaking 
but a cheerful and a pleasant man to work with, and gladly did 
all he could to advance the interests of those he deemed most 
deserving. When he was Governor of the New York Hospital, 
of which his ancestor was a founder, and as President of the 
New York Dispensary, Mr. Beekman showed marked ability, and 
his spoken appreciation of faithful work done by nurses and 
employees was a constant source of encouragement to them. 

Having been at Columbia, a student of the School of Mines 
and graduate of the Law School, and having travelled extensively 
in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Far West of our own country, 
Mr. iieekman's mind was well stored with useful knowledge and 
his companionship and conversation were valued highly. 

Iqog] James William Bee!;?nan. 3 

As a Christian he was a constant attendant at the Church of 
his ancestors, and a devout follower of the Master and to Him 
without a fear he committed his soul as his loved ones stood 
around his dying bed. 

In his home town Protestants and Catholics alike prayed for 
his life, so universally was he beloved by both rich and poor. 

There are three elements absolutely essential and inseparable 
from the makeup of a complete manhood, and these are sincerity, 
individuality and reverence, and it was these attributes of char- 
acter which the subject of this sketch possessed in a marked 
degree. The writer regrets that he had not the opportunity of 
knowing Mr. Beekman personally, but can in a sense, through 
the letters received very well understand the appreciation and 
esteem in which he was held by all who knew him, and feels that 
this glimpse one has into the depth and conscientious rectitude 
of a life such as was his, leaves one the stronger and better pre- 
pared to fulfill the obligations which God has placed upon him. 

Mr. Beekman had in him, as Jonathan Edwards would have 
said: " more than the average quantity of being." 

He was a full man on every side, and his generous nature 
and genial sympathy and good humor were ever a benediction to 
his friends and social co-workers. In him there was an admirable 
blending of the practical and the ideal, of the material and the 
spiritual in harmonious combination. 

Also it seems plain that he never left out of the forces of his 
life as he used them, that which lies beneath and upholds all 
others, the knowledge of the service of God. 

And it is in the contemplation of this highest aspect of Mr. 
Beekman's earthly career that those who now revere his memory, 
think of his life work not as ended but as entered upon that 
higher stage of larger knowledge and activity which is linked 
with the eternities. In this faith and hope the ties which were 
so sweet in life are not broken, but are made stronger by the 
memories of the past and the expectations of a surer future be- 

In these days when gross materialism is all around and 
about us, such a just life as this should be rightly honored, and 
this man's zeal for right doing should be held up as a bright 
example for the young men of this generation. The quality of 
the leading citizens of any age j^ives the measure of our nation's 
civilization. Strong and fiercely virile as is the commercial 
spirit of our time, the crowning glory of our century after all has 
been the rise of the humanist and the development of a qi \\ 
order of chivalry among many of that leisure class to which. Mr. 
nan belonged. 

In the words of that grand old man, Gladstone, "the safety of 
"in country is not in law and legislators, but in Christian gentle- 
men." And of such was the subject of this sketch. His was 
genuine service for his generation, constant and fruitful, and now 
that he has "passed to where beyond these voices there is rest 
and peace," those who knew him best must feel that he has left 
to them a precious example and a blessed memory. 

A Digest of Essex Wills. [Jan., 


With Particular Reference to Names of Importance in the 

American Colonies. 

By William Gilbert, 

Corresponding Member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society 
of the Essex Archaeological Society, etc. 


It has been observed that wills are the backbone of pedigrees 
and it is now generally admitted by the genealogist that, of all 
the sources of information available to him, they stand absolutely 
first in respect of importance, as they enlighten him more than 
any other class of document as to the habits, possessions, occu- 
pations and relations of his ancestors, as well as informing the 
antiquary and topographer of the names of estates, farms, fields 
and houses long since vanished and forgotten. Previous to the 
commencement of our Parish Registers (A. D. 1538), and sub- 
sequently where the early register has been lost or destroyed, 
wills are of a value that cannot be overestimated in rescuing 
names and circumstances from oblivion, and recovering some- 
what from the ever engulfing stream of time. I propose in the 
following series to give a digest of the wills of Essex families 
proved in the 16th and 17th centuries, more especially those 
whose names are now to be found in America. If any period is 
important to the American genealogist it is from 1560 to 1625. 
Comparatively few, in the first instance at any rate, require wills 
of a much earlier period, while those whose ancestors emigrated 
later, will, I hope, find the present series a useful basis for 
further research. This period in England embraces the reigns 
of Queen Elizabeth and King James I, and the country was calm 
and peaceful compared with the earlier time of the Reformation 
and the later time of the civil wars. We therefore find many 
people of quite a humble station of life exercising testamentary 
powers to dispose of their little properties; frequently only a 
few personal things. The wills were usually drawn up either 
by the parson or the parish clerk — a busy person in those 
days, frequently combining the duties of schoolmaster, singing 
master, sexton and verger. There is a great uniformity of ex- 
pression — the majority commencing " In the name of God 
Amen," then the date, both the year of the Lord and the year of 
the reign being given, then the name, abode and occupation of 
the testator, usually recounting the fact that he is " sicke in bodye 
but of good hole and pfect mynde and memorie" and thanks 
Almighty God for it. It is possibly sentiment, but it appeals to 
many as being a more picturesque procedure than our modern 
practical method. The wills also frequently contain other re- 
ligious sentiments and quotations from the Scriptures, which 

kjck)-] A Digest of Essex Wills. 5 

were held in the highest esteem. One reason for this "packing" 
perhaps lay in the fact that the scribe was remunerated .1 

ing to the length of the will, and it is not an uncommon circum- 
stance to find moral sentiment and religious hope occupying a 
good half of it. We however, as genealogists, while deriving a 
pleasure from this reading leave it to the student of contemp* irary 
religious thought and busy ourselves mainly with the earthly 
relatives and possessions of the deceased; so the digests which 
follow do not as a rule trouble about the religious clauses except 
where the fabric of the church is mentioned, or where there is 
something unusual, curious, or likely to be of service to the 

The Archdeaconry of Essex had a wide testamentary juris- 
diction within the county and the wills date from the year 1400. 
This was one of the chief courts of Probate for Essex but is far 
from being the only one, as, without including the Prerogative 
Court of Canterbury, there were at least fifteen others having 
powers over various portions, the principal being the Commissary 
and Consistory Courts of London, the Peculiar of the Dean and 
Chapter of St. Pauls, and the Commissary Court of Essex and 
Hertfordshire. I hope to draw upon the vast stores of infor- 
motion in all these repositories. 

It must be borne in mind that prior to 1752 the year com- 
menced on March 25th (subsequently it commenced on January 
1st), otherwise it will appear that a number of wills were proved 
before they were written which, as Euclid would say, is absurd. 

The sign x after witnesses names signifies "his mark," and 
that he (or she) was unable to write. 

It now only remains for me to say that I have a great 
pleasure in presenting these notes to my American friends 
(several of whom have corresponded with me at different tim( s, 
and a few of whom I have personally seen), and I hope that, 
should anyone be able to throw further light on any of the wills, 
he will contribute such explanatory details as he may have to 
this magazine, which will thus become a store-house of no little 
value, to the antiquary and the genealogist.

•f For many centuries there was, in England, a strong prejudice against 
beintr buried on the north side of the churchyard, and that portion was usually 
reserved for the reception of suicides, excommunicate persons, unbaptized 
infants and those who had been executed. The place of honor was at the east 
end against the chancel wall (see will No. 6). This prejudice is mentioned by 
Arnot in his History of Edinburgh. In the "Wise and Faithful Steward" 
(1657) it relates "he requested to be buried in the open churchyard on the 
North side to cross the received superstition as he thought of the constant 
choice of the south side."

in the township of Lodi, Bergen Co. His 
father, who died in 1S33, was a well-known 
farmer; he had nine children of whom John 
was the sixth. The boy received his earlier 
education at Washington and Lafayette Aca- 
demies, both at Hackensack. He entered 
Rutgers College in 1830, where he graduated 
in 1833. After leaving Rutgers, he chose the

where he pursued his studies for two years. 
He became an attorney in 1836, and was 
licensed as a counsellor four years later. He

continued until Mr. Ogden became a Supreme 
Court Justice. From 1843 to 1847 Mr. Hop- 
per was Town Counsel of Paterson; from 
1845 to 1855 he served as Surrogate of Passaic 
Co.; he was counsel to the Board of Free- 
holders of that county from 1855 to 1864, and 
served two terms as Prosecutor. In 1868, he 
entered political life, and was in that year 
elected to the State Senate from Passaic Co., 
serving until 187 1 and was re-elected in 1874. 
In March, 1877, a District Court was estab- 
lished in Paterson and Gov. Bedle appointed 
Mr. Hopper as Judge. In 1880 he was ap- 
pointed Judge of the Passaic Co. Common 
Pleas by Gov. Abbott. Each succeeding 
Governor reappointed him up to the accession 
of Gov. Griggs. In 1879 he became an ad- 
visory Master in Chancery. Mr. Hopper was 
m. to Mary A. Imlay, dau. of Robert Imlay, a 
Philadelphia merchant. He celebrated his 
golden wedding in 1890. He leaves five 
children: John H., 7 of the silk firm of Hopper 
& Scott of Paterson; Robert I., a lawyer. 
Mary A., widow of Frank W. Potter, late U. S. 
Consul at Marseilles; Margaret Imlay, wife 
of John J. Boyd of Boston, and Caroline 
Sloan. Three children are dead, viz.: Annie 
Burling, Albert E. and Jane B. Hopper. Mr. 
Hopper was an Odd Fellow and a Free 
Mason, and for many years was a Deputy 
Grand Master of Masons of N. J. He de- 
clined the office of Grand Master. He was a 
member of the Holland Society of N. Y., and

By Grace m. Pierce, 

There is no more interesting section of New York State than 
the region lying between the Mohawk Valley and the Genesee 
country, as it is frequently called. This central lake region is rich 
in legendary and historical ' 

Its eastern boundary was the extreme western frontier of 
American civilization at the be the American 1 

lution, and forth i of the white race westward was held 

in check by the alliance of the Indian tribes oi 

known as the Iroquois Confederacy. During the War of 

I 6 The Military Tract of New York State. [Jan., 

the Revolution this Indian Confederacy was allied with Great 
Britain, and incited by the agents of the English government, 
the tribes were at enmity with the Continental government and 
were continually committing depredations upon the frontier 

After the massacre of Wyoming, the Continental Government 
decided that a force should be sent into central New York to 
punish these Indians for their murderous sallies and British 
sympathy, and an army was gathered for that purpose and dis- 
patched under General Sullivan. This expedition for the first 
time made known to any considerable number of white men the 
desirability of central New York for settlement, and many of 
them at the close of hostilities, returned to this region and 
founded new homes for their families. 

The hunting grounds of the central tribes of the Confederacy, 
were, however, to become the homes of their former enemies in 
a more general way than by chance settlers, through the desire 
of New York State to repay her defenders for their patriotism 
and service in the hour of need, and central New York came to 
be known as "The Military Tract." 

This " Military Tract " was originally bounded on the north by 
Oneida Lake, Oswego River, and Lake Ontario; west by a line 
drawn from the head of Great Sodus Bay to the head of Seneca 
Lake; on the south by a line drawn from the head of Seneca 
Lake to the west line of the present county of Chenango; on the 
east by the counties of Chenango and Madison, and the Oswego 
River; the tract comprising all of the present counties of Onon- 
daga, Cayuga, Seneca and Cortland, and a part of each of Oswego, 
Tompkins and Wayne counties. As Onondaga was the only 
county known at the time the tract was surveyed, the entire 
tract was frequently designated at that time as " the Onondaga 
Military Tract." 

The history of the Military Tract really begins with the 
resolution adopted by the Continental Congress, Sept. 16, 1776. 

This resolution called for eighty-eight battalions to be en- 
listed as soon as possible, to serve during the war, and that each 
state should furnish its respective quota. That twenty dollars 
be given as bounty to each non-commissioned officer and private 
who should serve during the war unless sooner discharged. The 
resolution also provided that the appointment of all officers and 
filling of vacancies, except general officers, should be left to the 
government of the several states; and that every state provide 
arms, clothing, and every necessary for its quota of troops, 
according to the foregoing estimates. The expense of the cloth- 
ing to be deducted from the pay of the soldiers as usual. All 
general officers were to be commissioned by Congress. And the 
same resolution provided for grants of land to the soldiers who 
served through the war, and to the representatives of those 
soldiers who should be slain, in the following proportion: — to a 
colonel, 500 acres; to a lieutenant-colonel, 450 acres; to a 
major, 400 acres; to a captain, 300 acres; to a lieutenant, 200 

Igog.J The Military Tract of New York Statf. I " 

acres; to an ensign, 150 acres; to a non-commissioned officer 
and to each private, 100 acres. These lands were to be provided 
by the United States, and whatever expense there might be to 
produce such lands, the said expenses should be born by the 
states in the same proportion as the other expenses of the war. 

On Aug. 12, 1780, Congress further provided land bounties for 
Major-Generals, 1,100 acres, and for Brigadier-Generals, 850 

All these lands were situated in Ohio, but later the United 
States government made an arrangement with the New York 
State government, that any soldier legally relinquishing his 
claim to the one hundred acres in Ohio, should draw a full right 
of six hundred acres in New York. But failing to relinquu ' 
right by neglect or otherwise, the one hundred acres over five 
hundred acres (the amount given to each private by New York 
State, as will be explained later), should revert to New Y< 1 k 
State. The reversion of this one hundred acres gave rise to the 
term "State's Hundred," which was formerly so much used in the 
Military Tract. 

On March 20, 1781, a law was passed by the Legislature, pro- 
viding for the enlistment of two regiments for the defense of 
the frontier of New York, to be armed, accoutred, clothed, sub- 
sisted, and paid at the expense of the United States, and to 
continue in service three years unless sooner discharged. "The 
Council of appointment of the State of New York was to com- 
mission the field officers, and the Governor of the state, the 
captains and subalterns, who were to enlist as speedily as possible 
the aforesaid regiments." 

The faith of the state was pledged to the officers and pri\ 
that should they continue to serve the full time of three year-, ot- 
to the time they were respectively discharged, such officers and 
privates, or in the case of their death, their legal representatives, 
should respectively receive grants of lands as follows: — each 
non-commissioned officer and private, 500 acres, and officers to 
receive in proportion to their rank, after the land had been sur- 
veyed by the surveyor-general of the state. A ma 
was to receive 5,500 acres; a brigadier-general, 4,250; a colonel, 
2,500; a lieutenant-colonel, 2,250; a major, 2,000; a captain and 
regimental surgeon, each 1,500; chaplain, 2,000, and each sub- 
altern and Burgeon's mate, 1,000 acres. And this was all the 
bounty or emolument to be received from New York State. 

In case these lands were not actually settled within three 
years after the war was closed, they were to be forfeited, and 
were to revert to the state. The forces raised upon 
ditions were to be mustered and comn the commander- 

in-chief of the armies of the United States. 

On March 27, 1783, the Legislature passed the following 
measure: — "Whereas Congress by act of the sixteenth day of 

mber, 177'', did resolve, that certain quantities of B 
Lands should lie in-commissioned officers and 

privates serving in the Con my. 

1 8 The Military Tract of New York State. [Jan., 

"And, Whereas, the Legislature of this state are willing not 
only to take upon themselves to discharge the said engagement 
of Congress, so far as it relates to the line of this state, but like- 
wise as a gratuity to the said line, and to evince the just sense 
this Legislature entertain of the patriotism and virtue of the 
troops of this state, serving in the armies of the United States:" 

" Resolved therefore, that besides the bounty of land so 
promised as aforesaid, this Legislature will by law provide that 
the major-generals and the brigadier-generals now serving in the 
line of the army of the United States, and being citizens of this 
state; and the officers, non-commissioned officers and the privates 
of the two regiments of Infantry commanded by Colonels Van 
Shaick and Van Courtlandt; such officers of the regiment of 
artillery commanded by Colonel Lamb, and of the corps of 
sappers and miners, as were, when they entered the service, 
inhabitants of this state; such of the non-commissioned officers 
and privates of the last mentioned two corps as are credited to 
this state as part of the troops thereof; all officers deranged by 
any acts of Congress subsequent to the 16th day of September, 
1776; all officers recommended by Congress as persons whose 
depreciation of pay ought to be made good by this state, and who 
may hold military commissions in the line of the army at the 
close of the war; and the Rev. John Mason and John Gano, 
shall severally have granted to them the following quantities of 
land, etc." (These grants were in the same proportion as had 
already been granted in the act of 17S1.) 

" That the lands so to be granted as bounty from the United 
States, and as a gratuity from this state shall be laid out in 
townships of six miles square; that each township shall be 
divided into 156 lots of 150 acres each, two lots whereof shall be 
reserved for the use of a minister or ministers of the gospel, and 
two lots for the use of a school or schools; that each of the 
persons above described shall be entitled to as many such lots as 
his bounty and gratuity land as aforesaid, will admit of; that 
one-half of the lot that each person shall be entitled to shall be 
improved at the rate of five acres for every one hundred acres, 
within the term of five years next after the grant, if such lots 
are sold by the original grantee, or within ten years of such a 
grant, if the grantee shall retain the possession of such lots, and 
that the said bounty and gratuity lands be located in the district 
of this state reserved for the use of the troops by an act entitled, 
'An act to prevent grant or locations of the lands therein men- 
tioned,' passed the twenty-fifth day of July, 1782.' " 

From the foregoing it will readily be understood that the 
one hundred acres promised each private by the United States 
was known as his "bounty" land, and the five hundred given by 
New York State was distinguished as his "gratuity" land. 

In May, 1784, Commissioners were appointed "to proceed to 
grant military bounty land, and to settle individual claims. 
These Commissioners were the Governor, Lt.-Governor, Speaker 
of the Assembly, Secretary of State, Attorney-General, Treasurer, 

igog.] The Military Tract of New York State. I g 

and Auditor, any three of whom transacted business, the Gov- 
ernor always being one of them. 

The same act ordered the lands laid out in the form of squares 
or as nearly a square form as was possible, and inhibited the 
Surveyor-General from laying out any bounty or gratuity lands 
in certain tracts or any part thereof. 

These reserved tracts of land were, a certain tract adjoining 
the south end of Lake George, within two miles of the fort called 
Fort George; certain tracts at Ticonderoga, and at Crown Point; 
a peninsular adjoining Lake Champlain called Point An Per, 
comprising five hundred acres; two tracts adjoining Lake Ontario 
where the Onondaga River falls into said lake, running from the 
mouth of the said river and on both sides thereof as the same 
river flows, one mile on either side; "a certain tract adjoining 
the water communication between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, 
and to be bounded on the east by a line across a pond one mile 
distant from the most easterly inclination of the said water 
communication, on a perpendicular to the general course of the 
said water communication, and to extend from the said pond to 
Lake Ontario on one side and to Lake Erie or to the north 
boundary line of Pennsylvania, as the case may be, on the other;" 
a certain ore bed about eight miles north of Crown Point adjoin- 
ing Lake Champlain, commonly called "Skene's ore bed;" "a 
certain piece adjoining the falls commonly called Oswego Falls 
on Onondaga River, beginning twenty chains above where the 
bateaux were heretofore taken out of the said river to be carried 
across the portage, and extending down the river twenty chains 
below where the bateaux were usually put into the said river, 
after having been transported over the portage, extending on 
each side in every part between the said two places, ten chains 
from said river." 

The first grant of Military Bounty Lands comprised all that 
tract of country bounded north by Oneida Lake, Oneida River 
and Lake Ontario; west by a line drawn from Great Sodus Bay 
on Lake Ontario to the foot of Seneca Lake, up Seneca Lake to 
its head; south by a line drawn eastward from the head of 
Seneca Lake to the Oneida Reservation, and along the Chitten- 
ango Creek to its estuary, the place of beginning; except certain 
reserves for the Onondaga and Seneca Indians, and for the State 
of New York, in the vicinity of the salt springs. 

The Indian titles to these lands had not as yet been ex- 
tinguished and there was much doubt and uncertainty as to the 
time when it would be, and many claimants became clamorous 
for their rights. Consequently, on May 15, 17S6, the Legislature 
passed an act authorizing the Surveyor-General to lay out several 
townships where Indian titles had been extinguished, to satisfy 
the claims of the officers and soldiers of the New York regit] 

In compliance with this act, twelve townships were laid "lit in 
the northern part of the state, numbered from south to north and 
back, in two tiers, each township containing ten square miles, 
being each ten miles square, ami equal to 768,000 acres. 1 '( 
these townships, numbers 1, 2, 11 and 12 are now in Essex 

20 The Military Tract of New York State. [Jan. 

County; numbers 3, 4, 5 and 6 are in Clinton County, and num- 
bers 7, 8, 9 and 10 are in Franklin County. These lands were 
subsequently known as the "Old Military Tract." 

Many of the soldiers' claims had been bought up by specu- 
lators, and it was soon ascertained that these lands of northern 
New York were not to be compared to the central lands for 
fertility and prospective value, and the Legislature was induced 
to defer the final settlement of claims until the Indian title had 
been extinguished to the lands of the Onondagas, Cayugas and 

This was finally effected by the Treaty of Fort Stanwix, on 
Sept. 12, 1788, and the individual rights were located as originally 

The Onondaga Military Tract originally contained about 
1,800,000 acres, or about 3,000 rights, exclusive of reservations. 
Deception and fraud regarding these rights had already been 
practiced to a considerable extent, and progress in the settle- 
ment of claims was made very slowly, as it was with the greatest 
difficulty that the Commissioners could distinguish in some cases 
between the rightful and fraudulent claimants. 

In 1789, the Commissioners of the Land Office directed the 
Surveyor-General to lay out as many townships as would satisfy 
the claims of persons entitled to bounty lands. He accordingly 
laid out twenty-five townships, numbering from one to twenty- 
five inclusive; each township contained 60,000 acres, and these 
townships were subdivided into lots of six hundred acres each. 

In 1790, the Surveyor-General having completed the survey as 
ordered, it was decided that fifty acres to be located in one of the 
corners of each lot, was subject to the payment of forty-eight 
shillings to the Surveyor-General as a compensation for his 
services. This was the origin of the term of "Survey Fifty;" 
and the further sum of eight shillings was charged by the Sec- 
retary of State upon each lot in addition to his customary fees 
for perfecting conveyances. Simeon DeWitt, the Surveyor- 
General, personally laid out the whole Military Tract, by plotting 
and mapping the boundaries and calculating the whole area. 
He, however, appointed Moses De Witt and Abraham Harden- 
burgh as his assistants to divide the Military Tract as laid out 
into townships, each to contain one hundred lots, and this 
division into lots of the townships was made under their direction 
and superintendance, by a corps of surveyors working under 

It was originally intended to have each township ten miles 
square, and each lot one mile square, but in reality some town- 
ships and also many lots were found to be very irregular. 

The terms of township and towns are frequently confounded 
and the one substituted for the other. A township in the 
Military Tract was a particular parcel of land laid out, containing 
certain one hundred lots. A town, in our early organization 
often embraced several townships. 

The townships of the Military Tract were at first numbered, 
one, two, three, etc., but afterwards the Commissioners of the 

I9°9-l The Military Tract of New York State. 2 I 

Land Office named them after distinguished men, an act which 
explains many of the classical names of towns throughout this 
section of the state. 

The Military townships were named as follows: — i, Lysander; 
2, Hannibal; 3, Cato; 4, Brutus; 5, Camillas; 6, Cicero; 7, Man- 
lius; 8, Aurelius; 9, Marcellus; 10, Pompey; 11, Rumulus; 12, 
Scipio; 13, Sempronius; 14, Tully; 15, Fabius; 16, Ovid; 17, 
Milton; 1. S, Locke; 19, Horace; 20, Solon; 21, Hector; 22, Ulysses; 
23, Dryden; 24, Virgil; 25, Cincinnatus. 

July 31, 1790, at a meeting of the Land Commissioners, the 
secretary having been furnished by Abraham Hardenburgh, one 
of the deputies of the Surveyor-General, with a map showing the 
interference of certain of the military lands with the townships 
ceded to Massachusetts, known as the "Boston Ten Towns," 
brought the subject to the attention of the Board, together with 
the fact that some of the lots thus conflicting had already been 

The Commissioners at once ordered these ballots destroyed 
and two additional townships to be laid out by the Surveyor- 
General from the lands set apart for the military, and lot number 
26 was named Junius. 

On Jan. 1, 1791, the Commissioners proceeded to determine 
the many claims and to ballot for each individual share, and the 
record of these drawings was kept in a book known as the "bal- 
loting book." Ninety-four persons drew lots in each township; 
one lot was drawn for the support of literature in the State of 
New York, one lot was assigned near the centre of each township 
by the Surveyor-General for the support of the gospel and com- 
mon schools, and the remaining four lots went to satisfy the 
surplus share of officers, and to compensate those who by chance 
might draw lots covered with water. If any lots contained too 
small a quantity of land the Commissioners were authorized to 
correct it. The former act relative to actual settlement was 
repealed and the time for such actual settlement was extended 
seven years from Jan. 1, 1792. In case of failure to settle within 
that time, the lands reverted to the State as before. But the 
equitable adjustment of these land claims proved a source of 
continual embarrassment and perplexity to the Commissioners 
and real owners alike. 

The warrants under which title was given to these claims 
were known as "land patents," and were issued under the "Great 
Seal of the State of New York." This seal was devised by a 
committee consisting of Messrs. John Jay, Gouveneur Morris and 
John Sloss Hobart, appointed by the Constitution of the State in 
1777. The seal was double-faced, on one side was a rising sun 
over three mountains; motto underneath, "Excelsior;" and 
legend, "The Great Seal of the State of New York." On the 
reverse side was a huge rock rising out of the sea, and the legend, 
"Frustra, 1777." 

The patent was written on parchment, fourteen or fifteen 
inches wide, and twenty-one inches long, the lower edge of the 

2 2 The Military Tract of New York State. [Jan., 

parchment was doubled back one and three-fourths inches, and 
to this doubled edge the seal was attached by a braided white 
cord an eighth of an inch thick, leaving the seal pendant to the 

In Aug., 1792, the Board of Commissioners, finding it necessary 
in order to comply with the grants of bounty lands, lately 
directed by law to be made to the members of the Hospital De- 
partment, caused township 27, and the lots therein, respectively 
to be numbered according to law, and the township to be desig- 
nated by the name of Galen. 

In 1795, as there still appeared a number of unsatisfied claims 
for military bounty lands, the twenty-seventh township being 
disposed of, the Commissioners resolved that the Surveyor- 
General should lay out one other township, number 28, which 
was subsequently named Sterling, and the allotment of this 
township eventually satisfied all remaining claims. 

In Jan., 1794, on account of the many frauds committed re- 
specting titles to these military bounty lands, by forging and 
antedating conveyances, by conveying the same to different 
persons, and various other methods, and to prevent future frauds, 
the Legislature passed an act providing that all deeds and con- 
veyances made and executed before that time, or pretending to 
be so, should be deposited with the clerk of Albany County for 
the time being, and all that were not so deposited, should be 
considered fraudulent. The names of the claimants were posted 
in alphabetical order in the clerk's office at Albany, and also at 
the clerk's office at Herkimer, for the inspection of all persons 

These claims were still contested, the courts were over- 
whelmed with litigation relative thereto. Scarcely a lot but 
became the subject of more or less legal controversy; even 
soldiers themselves going to take possession of the lots for which 
they had served, were obliged to eject lawless squatters at con- 
siderable expense, or to yield their hard earned title and rights. 
At length, the residents of the Military Tract became so com- 
pletely wearied with these most annoying and continued con- 
tentions, that in 1797, they " unanimuously and heartily" united 
in a petition to the State Legislature to pass a law authorizing a 
speedy and equitable method of settling all disputes relative to 

An act was therefore passed appointing Robert Yates, James 
Kent and Vincent Matthews, Commissioners with full powers 
"to hear, examine, award and determine all disputes respecting 
titles to any and all bounty lands." The Governor was author- 
ized to fill all vacancies on the Board. From the records the 
name of James Kent does not appear in any transactions of the 
Board. Most of the awards of 1798-99 were signed by Vincent 
Matthews and James Emmott; later ones by Vincent Matthews 
and Robert Yates; and some of the 1801 and 1802 by Vincent 
Matthews, James Emmott and Sanders Livingston. These Com- 
missioners after long and laborious investigations, finally brought 
these legal contentions to a satisfactory conclusion.

loog.] Lists of Germans from the Palatinate who came to England in iyog. 49 


The following lists are copied from the original documents 
preserved in the British Museum Library, London, England, and 
should be of the greatest genealogical interest to those families in 
States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and else- 
where, which claim descent from the so-called Palatine settlers. 
These lists have never before been printed to the knowledge of 
the Editor, and it should be noted that the word " son " or "s< 
and "daii." or "daus." followed by figures denote that the heads 
of the family had as many sons or daughters, as there are figures, 
and that these sons and daughters were of the respective ages 
denoted by the figures. The word "wife" indicates that the 
head of the family was married and that the wife was living. 
The abbreviations "Ref.," " Luth.," "Hap." and "Cath.," mean 
that the family belonged to the Reformed, Lutheran, Baptist or 
Catholic Churches.

Dumont Family. — Several years ago I contributed to The Record some 
articles on the Dumont family, in which was mentioned the military service of 
one Peter Dumont, who sometimes styled himself Peter H. Dumont to prevent 
confusion. The chief Bibliographer of the Library of Congress, supplied the 
following, under the date of Aug. 22, 1907: 

" ]. P. Snell's History of Hunterdon and Somerset Counties, New Jersey ; 
Philadelphia, 1881; has the following on page 782: 

Henry Reed Stiles, A.M., M.D., hrst President and 
last surviving Charter Member of the New York Genealogical 

raphical Society, one of the founders and first Editor 
of this magazine, died at his home, Hill View, Warren County, 
X. Y., January 7th, 1909, in the 77th year of his age. 

Driven to retirement through bodily infirmities, he con- 
tinued until quite recently to prepare for publication the mass 
of historical and genealogical material he had gathered, his 
last work being the editing of a new edition of "A Journal of 
Voyage of De La Salle to the Gulf of Mexico fo find 
out the Mouth of the Mississippi." 

Although most of his generation has passed away, prob- 
ably no other genealogist was so widely known, so univer- 
sally admired and beloved, — and by none more than the 
members of the present Publication Committee of the RECORD, 
whose honored associate as Editor Emeritus he was at the 
time of his decease.

By request of the Congress, Hillsborough Township appointed a town com- 
mittee in 1776 and 1777, to act in behalf of their country when necessary. The 
following were the commit- 

1776. — John B. Dumont, Abraham Dubois, Johannes Demott, Cornelius 
Sebring, Peter A. Dumont, Lawrence Van Kleel, Garret Terhune, Jr. 

1777. — Abraham Dubois, John Dumont, Cornelius Sebl 
Dumont, Isaac Vannuys, Peter H. Dumont, Derrick Low, Peter Stryker, Jr. 

The statement that Congres i 1 illsborough Township to appoint a 

town committee, would seem to be of doubtful authenticity. Each Colony was 
to appoint its own committee of safety as is seen from the following resolution, 
adopted by Congress, July 18. 1775: 

That it be recommended to each Colony to appoint a committee of safety, 
to superintend and direct all matters necessary for the security and defense of 
their respective Colonies, in the recess -cmblies and conventions."

Gilbert Famii ■•,, of a book published in Mass., I'. S. A., in 

1850, entitled A Genealogical Memoir of the Gilbert Family in Old ana 
England, by 1. \V. Thornton, is the statement: "From Compton : .. ■ stems of 
the old stock branched off, for instance about 1604 John Gilbert li fl Compton 
and settled at Blechington, County of Essex." This should be County oi 
(representatives of which family are flourishing, 1 believe, at tin present day). 
I mention this point as I have had no less than four correspondents use tins 
statement as an authority for the conjectural connection between Gilbert oi 
Essex (of whom Sir William Gilbert, the great elei p Eli/.), and 

Gilbert of Compton, Devon (of whom Sir Humphrey Gilbert, the navigator), 
irrespondent suggesting that Blechington (which he has read at 1 
1 might be one of the Belchamps in Essex. The pedigree of Gilbert of 
Essex has been traced back to Suffolk (circa 1420), and I am of opinion that 
they were not in anv way connected with Gilbert of Devon as there were 
families of this name of equal antiquity in the North and Midlands.

John Bidwell, Pioneer. A Sketch of his Career, by Marcus Benjamin. 
Paper, Quarto, pp. 52. Privately printed. Washington. 1907. 

The subject of this biography was descended from sturdy New England 
stock, a son of Abraham Bidwell and Clarissa Griggs, and born in Chatauqua 
County, New York. The family later removed to Pennsylvania, thence to 
Ohio, and finally, in 1839, John Bidwell started for the West, and in 1841 joined 
one of the first parties organized to cross the Rocky Mountains to California. 
He took an active part in the early political development of California, which 
led to her independence in 1846, and in 1849 purchased the domain of Rancho 
Chico, which William Dickey had obtained in 1844 by a grant from the 
Mexican government. With a strong bent of mind for farming, Mr. Bidwell 
proceeded to place his great tract of land under cultivation, subdividing it into 
some twenty farms, each devoted to the special product of grain, fruit, nuts, 
vegetables and flowers. Great herds of live stock were collected, and General 
Bidwell employed an army of 150 farm hands throughout the year, and at 
harvest time the number ran up to 800. 

He also incorporated the city of Chico and donated much valuable land to 
the municipality. The people of California repeatedly honored General Bid- 
well with positions of trust and high office, all of which he filled with ability, 
integrity and success, and the principal facts of his political and legislative 
career are set forth in detail. 

The biography is beautifully printed and illustrated with half tone photo- 
graphs, and the taste displayed in selection of large type, deckle edge paper 
and subjects of illustration is unusually good.

It is curious that the origin of the celebrated statesman should be so 
shrouded in mystery. From his own account, three brothers came to America 
from Wales in the early part of the eighteenth century ai n Phila- 

delphia, but reference to the Welsh Tract Records, 170I-1828, only disi 
the names Righart, Shonnet and James David in 170I. The fact is clear thai 
one Evan Davis was the grandfather, and Samuel Davis the father, of the 
nt of the Confederate States, and beyond that all is doubt or hypothesis. 
The identity of the names David, Davies and Davis is to be doubted and hence 
the problem of the Davis ancestry is far from being solved. The author, how- 
ever, has advanced a new theory, and added valuable data to the meagre 
family records, and has brought to the attention of the public a search which 
should be taken up by skilled genealogists. 

The ancient annals of a family which culminated in Jefferson Davis, the 
great Confederate leader, are well worth writing, and an exhaustive search of 
existing court records may result in further fact> oi

in 1638. Whitehead Cornell Duyckinck and Rev. John Cornell, M.A. New 
York. Tobias A. Wright. 1008. 8vo, Cloth, pp. x+247. 

Genealogies of old Holland families are, unfortunately, comparatively 
rare, and this very attractive volume is doubly valuable for that re;. sen. It 
contains the records of over 6,000 of Evert Duyckinck's descendants, and 
numbers among them some of the best known old New York families. Among 
these may be noted the Abeel, Allien, Bancker, Bartow, Beekma 
Byvanck, Chrystie, Constable, D ir, Hoffman, Hooglandt, K 

LeRoy, Livingston, McVickar, Pell, Pierrepont, I'rovoost, Roosevelt, Rut 
Sands, Yanderbilt, Yerplanck, Whitney and Willed families, all of win. in, 
especially their present-day members, are largely represented in the book, 
their descent being derived through Duyi kini k women. 

In addition to these very important ge present day New 

Yorkers, the compilers have presented an exi or, of 

the Duyckinck arms, a map of New Amsterdam in 1 chalk's plan 

of the vaults in the New Dutch Church Yard in 17'^, besides several portraits. 
The volume is well printed and bound, and will be found invaluable to ever] 
student of New York genealogy.

Col. David Fanning's Narrative, with an Introduction and Notes by 
A. W. Savary. Cloth, Large Octavo, pp. 55. Reprinted from the Canadian 
Magazine, Toronto, Canada. 1908. 

In this diary Col. David Fanning of North Carolina, personally sets out his 
exploits and adventures as a Loyalist, and for the first time the manuscript has 
been accurately printed in this interesting book. American writers have re- 
peatedly attacked the character and reputation of Col. Fanning, and attributed 
to him vices and crimes which existed only in the minds of the patriots who 
were his opponents. Any Loyalist during the Revolutionary War was treated 
by the patriotic party with peculiar opprobrium and considered to be without 
the pale of civilization. 

Mr. Savary has earned well deserved praise in placing before the public 
the complete narrative uncurtailed or expurgated and explained by a series of 
valuable notes. It was a happy thought to place in permanent library form 
this remarkable magazine article, and it is from such writings as these that an 
accurate history of the War of Independence can eventually be compiled, with 
justice to both Patriot and Tory. 

Memoirs of the Graham Family. Annie Kendrick Walker. New 
York. Tobias A. Wright. 1908. 12D, Boards, pp. 35. 

This exceedingly attractive little brochure, in its demure brown binding, 
charmingly illustrated with quaint portraits, sets forth the life of a wealthy 
Tennessee family in the good old days. The Grahams had their immediate 
origin in Ireland, and Hugh Graham, the American Ancestor, came to this 
country at the age of fourteen, and settled in Tazewell, Tennessee, where he 
built his homestead, "Castle Rock." From this family descended the wife of 
the American Minister to Constantinople, the Baroness Kavanaugh-Ballyane 
and the Princess de Liguori de Pdesicci.

Unrecorded Wills prior to 1790, on file in the Surrogate Office, City of New

New York. 1903. 

No more important contribution to the genealogical history of this city 
could be made than this volume of unrecorded wills, all of which were found 
in the Surrogate Office by Mr. William S. Pelletreau, and the insertion of 
facsimiles of rare autographs make it doubly valuable. 

The wills of Henricus Selyns, 1700, one of the early ministers of the Dutch 
Church; Samuel Sands, 1713; Anthony Brockholst, 1710; Jacob Walton, 1749; 
Jacob Boelen, 1725; James Livingston, 1763; Jacob Walton, 1782; Martha 
Mortier, 1786; Maria Barclay, 1788, and Teunis Somarindyk, are peculiarly 
interesting and their discovery and preservation must be gratifying to their 
descendants in this city and state. 

Next to actual Heraldic Visitations and Ancient Pedigree Charts, the 
public records contain the greatest material for genealogical study and this 
series of the Historical Society will prove invaluable when, time, fire or the 
elements have ruined or destroyed the ancient records.

This volume is a continuation of the admirable series of digests of wills 
published by the New York Historical Society, and covers an interesting period 
of the Revolutionary War. It is printed and bound uniform with the preceed- 
ing volumes of this series, and will be a treasure trove of information to those 
whose ancestors were in this city at that period. It is published " in Memoriam " 
of Eugene Augustus Hoffman, President of the Society 1901-1902, and the 
expense of preparing and publishing the volume has been provided for by

Mrs. Eugene A. Hoffman. The Historical Society is fortunate in being able to 
edit and publish a work of this character through the generosity of the Hoff- 
man family. 

History anij Genealogy of the Jewetts of Amkkica, a record of 
Edward Jewett, of Bradford, West Rideing of Yorkshire, England, and of Ins 
two emigrant sons, Deacon Maximilian and Joseph Jewett, Settlers ol Rowley, 
Massachusetts, in 1639. Also of Abraham and |onn [ewett, early settlers of 
Rowley, anil of the Jewetts who have settled in the United States since the 
year 1800, by Frederick Clarke jewett, M. D, In Two Volumes, Cloth, Large 
Octavo, pp. 1197. Illustrated and fully Indexed. The Grafton i'ress, New 
York. 10/38. 

In 1855, a meeting of those who bore the name of Jewett was held in 
Rowley, at which Steps were taken to collect and preserve the fast disappi 
records of this representative family, but it was reserved for Dr. Jewett to hand 
down to posterity a family genealogy of which one and all may well feel proud. 

All the Jewetts in the country sprang from Edward Jewett, Clothier, of 
Bradford, Co. York., England, who married Mary, daughtei of William Taylor, 
except four families who came from England subsequent to 1800 and who 
are, undoubtedly, of the same family originally. 

The work appears to be exhaustive of the name in this country, and any 
one of the great number of descendants can be readily found, owing to the 
admirable arrangement, following the best standard genealogical system. The 
stupendous nature of the authors task can be realized from the number given 
to the last chi in Volume II, viz.: 11,042. The biography of each 

head of a family is concisely told, and throughout the two volumes the reader 
is impressed with eliminaiian of unnecessary detail and tradition hypotheses of 
descent. In regard to the right to bear arms, the author states in his preface: 
"The arms borne by him" (Edward Jewett) "and which were brought to this 
country by Deacon Maximilian and Joseph Jewett. and which they were so 
careful to preserve on the records here," but a careful examination of the data 
given concerning the father and the two emigrant sons does not disclose in 
what shape, how or where any such arms were preserved. It may he the seals 
on the wills of Deacon Maximilian and Joseph [ewett bore an impress of the 
arms claimed, but it is not so stated and if so, it is to be regretted that a photo- 
graphic reproduction of the seal is not given.

Browning, Duncan, Yancey and others, by W. H. Miller. Cloth, Octavo, 
pp. 7jS. With full Index, pp. 127. Press of the Transylvania Co., Lexington, 
Ky. 1907. 

Considering the mass of data collected and the difficulty of arriving at any 
condensed system of recording the facts concerning so many different families, 
the author has accomplished wonders, and while his compilation is nut in 
regular genealogical form, by an unusually clear and complete index, he has 
made the searcher's task comparatively an easy one. Like all American 
families the Millers are of many nationalities, and the various lines are traced 
out with a wealth of detail not only admirably arranged, but well set forth in 
readable form. The patient and persistent research expended upon this 
volume excites admiration, and its author deserves every success in his effort 
to leave a permanent record of his ancestors. 

The traditions of the Maupin family and its French origin are particularly 
valuable, and undoubtedly will aid many of the name in tracing out their fore- 
bears. The typography is excellent; a trifle small, but this could not be 
avoided in order to embrace all the material in one volume. 

The Northrup-Northrop Genealogy— A record of the known de- 
scendants of Joseph Northrup, who came from England in 1637, and was one 
of the original settlers of Milford, Conn., in 1639, with lists of Northrups and 
Northrops in the Revolution. By A. Judd Northrup, LL.D., of Syracuse, N. Y. 
Cloth, Octavo, pp. 461. Full Index. The Grafton Press, New York. 1908. 

While the spellings of the name of Northrup have been many and varied, 
the ancestor of this branch of the family in the earliest documents of records, 
always writes himself as Joseph Northrup. He is supposed to have come 
from' Yorkshire, though this is exceedingly doubtful, as many of like name, 
spelled somewhat differently are found in Hertfordshire and Kent. The 
original immigrant was one of Eaton and Davenport's company, sailing from 
England in the ships Hector and Martin in 1637. This company settled in 
New Haven in 1638, but many members later affiliated with Sir Richard 
Saltonstall's Company and removed to Milford, Conn., about 1639. 

Joseph Northrup' married Mary, daughter of Francis Norton and became 
the father of eight children, who in turn left numerous descendants. The 
author displays much patience, care and skill in gathering and setting forth 
his facts, and has put together an excellent family record. The addition of 
such data as he obtained concerning the connected families of like name and 
the Revolutionary records, make the book complete and extremely useful to 
those who are searching to place ancestors of this name. The standard system 
of recording is employed, which will commend the book to all practical 
genealogists. The name of its publisher is enough to insure proper typography 
and binding, and Mr. Northrup is to be congratulated upon so thorough and 
useful a family history. It may safely be stated that if genealogies are con- 
tinued to be collected and published on the lines of this volume, in a few years 
the libraries of this country will possess unsurpassed collections in this line of 

The History of Orange County, New York. Edited by Russel 
Headley. Cloth, Octavo, pp. 997. Index. Press of Van Deusen & Elms, 
Middletown, N. Y. 1908. 

This work fills a long felt want and presents an accurate and compre- 
hensive history not only of the County of Orange, its settlements, early govern- 
ment, events of the French and Indian, and the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, 
and the legal, medical and journalistic celebrities of the county, but a 
detailed sketch of each of the towns contained within its boundaries. Neces- 
sarily the main facts of interest from about 1775 to the present time occupy the 
largest portion of the book, and the biographies printed deal with living 
representatives of the county, but the pages contain abundant material for the 
genealogist and authentic lists of the early grantees, military levies and 
organizations. Mr. Headley shows clear insight and grasp of his subject, and 
has carried out a difficult task with ability and credit not only to his intelligence 
and industry, but to the honor of one of the oldest counties in the State of 
New York. The work is splendidly illustrated with a number of steel engraved

portraits and half tone plates of persons and places of interest, and while it 
must be regretted that no exhaustive index has been made, this lack can be 
attributed to the great cost in time and labor such an index would require. 
The history will take its place among the best of kindred works on th< 
Counties and go far to perfect the record of what may justly be called the 
Empire State. 

The Descendants of John Potter, by Mr. Wayland Manning. Paper, 
Octavo, pp. 28, with Index. Privately printed. 1906. 

This small pamphlet is a record of the descendants of John Potti 
James Potter, ot Mount Potter and Catharine, daughter cf Sir John Stewart, of 
t) Down, Ireland, born April 12, 176;, who immigrated to 
Charlestown, S. C, in 178.1, married Catharine Fuller and removed i" Princeton, 
N. j., in 1824, where he died in 1848. 

Among the more prominent families related are those of Conger, Cuyler, 
Dod, Higginson, Langborne, Pyne and Stockton, and the vital statistics col- 
lected will be of much service to any descendant contemplating a full genealogy 
of the family. 

Gi nealogy of the Cortland County, N. Y. Branch of thi Sandi rs 
Family, by Dr. Charles W. Sanders. Cloth, Quarto, pp. 101, with Chart. 
Press of Meyer Bros., New York, N. \ . 

John Sanders of Weeks, Downton Parish, Wiltshire, England, who came 
to Salem in 1630, was the founder of the American branch ol the family, and 
that he was entitled to bear coat of armor is clearly shown by the will of his 
grandson, Capt. John Sanders of Salem, who died in 1694. This will was 
sealed with wax upon which is an impression of a seal bearing an elephant's 
side view, which is the crest of the Sanders Anns, as borne by the 
English family of that name ol lamshire, Northamptonshire and 

Wiltshire, England. The lines of descent are tersely set down to the present 
day, but the work is more of the nature of a skeleton pedigree than a detailed 
family history. It is illustrated with good wood cut portraits, but I 

ally nor indexed. It is hoped that these notes may bring 
to light additional data and result in a more complete genealogy. The book is 
clearly printed and has many pages for added 1

Life In Old Virginia, by James J. McDonald. Edited by J. A. C. Chand- 
ler, Cloth, Small Octavo, pp. 374, Unindexed. Press of The Old Virginia Pub- 
lishing Co. (Inc.), Norfolk, Va. 1907. 

The history of the early colony of Virginia has been so often and so admir- 
ably written that further works upon this subject would appear superfluous, 
except they contain original material gleaned from recently discovered records 
and manuscripts. Mr. McDonald has collected together a series of chap- 
ters upon historical subjects which are readable, and has filled the book with 
photographic productions of persons, places and things of local interest. Its 
value will be in the preservation of odd bits of information, rather than any 
genealogical discoveries or records. 

The Witchcraft Delusion in Colonial Connecticut, 1647-1697, by 
John M. Taylor. Cloth, Small Octavo, pp. 172, with Index. The Grafton 
Press. 1908. 

No delusion in the history of peoples is of greater psychological interest 
than that of witchcraft, and so early and anciently was this fear of powers un- 
natural instilled into human minds that the Code of Hammurabi, digested 2250 
B. C. contains provisions against the makers and casters of spells. The wave of 
superstition that swept Colonial Salem in 1692 was but the aftermath of the 
greater and more widespread frenzy against magic practice in the Motherland. 
It was inevitable that the Massachusetts persecutions should be imitated in the 
other Colonies, and the wonder and shame rests in the fact that reputable men, 
of education and intelligence, should so drift with the tide of folly and actively 
aid in the legal commission of crime. 

Mr. Tayler has complied from ancient documents a most valuable record 
of the Connecticut prosecutions and executions of so-called witch-wives. The 
quaint and curious language and form of the depositions of witnesses are accur- 
ately transcribed and the list of the unfortunate appears to be as accurate as time, 
research and labor can make it. The date and name of the first victim in New 
England, who paid the penalty to the superstition of witch-craft, has been dis- 
closed by the author's efforts, and in Matthew Grant's diary can be read; "May 
26, 1647, Alse Young was hanged" in Windsor, Connecticut. This is an im- 
portant discovery and Mr. Taylor is entitled to the highest credit for his solution 
of a long sought for and vexatious problem. The book is exhaustive on its sub- 
ject and will become a standard work of reference. In typography, material 
and binding, the work maintains the exacting standard of The Grafton Press, 
and deserves the attention of historians.

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society 
226 West 58th Street, New York. 

This Society has for sale official forms of genealogical charts called 
"Register of Pedigrees." These registers are of two varieties, called "single" 
and "double" charts. They are each paper covered books of 11 x 16 inches in 
size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of names of ancestors in succes- 
sive generations. The single charts consist of 17 pages, and when filled in will 
give all of the ancestors in all ramifications for o generations, arranged so that the 
family name of each of the 16 great-great-grandparents occupies a page. Family 
names appear on the marginal index which is formed by the indentation of each 
leaf. The back of each leaf is arranged for special memoranda concerning the 
persons named on the page facing it. 

The double charts are practically two single charts combined. The object 
being to devote the first half of the chart to the registration of the complete pedi- 
gree of the male line, the second half for a like registration of the female line, and 
the double chart therefore provides for the registration of 10 generations in both 
male and female lines. 

The price of these charts to members of this Society is as follows: 
Single Charts, 75 cts. Double Charts, $1.50 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, $1.00 Double Charts, $2.00 

Members of the Society, or others who purchase these Charts and fill them in as fully as pos- 
sible and present them to the Librarian of the Society for filing in the Society's Library, will re- 
ceive a new one in exchange therefor without additional cost. These charts may be purchased by 
application to the Librarian. 

It is the desire of the Ti 
fill them out as far as possible and file them with the Society. 
in volumes, fully indexed, and will thus form a record of inestimable value to the Society. 

Those who have in their possession full information as to their individual ancestry are espec- 
ially urged to obtain these Charts, fill them in and file them with the Society, as information of this 
nature is very frequently lost to posterity owing to negligence on the part of those possessing it to 
make record thereof, in special depositories provided for that purpose.

is equipped to undertake any commission, however large or small, 
and whether genealogical or general in character. We guarantee to 
satisfy our customers. A few hints as to what we can and are doing 
in the genealogical line — 

Collect the material and write a genealogy from the beginning to 

the end. 
Complete a partly finished manuscript, no matter what stage it is in. 
Take loose data and put it in perfect condition for printing. 
Edit a completed manuscript, supplying the numbering, arrange- 
ment, style or good English. 
Prepare the index of names, and of places, or both. 
Or do anything whatever might be necessary. And we will gladly 
show examples of our work in all these lines. 


We have indexed, rearranged, edited, and prepared for publication 
many manuscripts. For the committee in charge of the New Mil- 
ford (Connecticut) Bi-Centennial celebration (1907) we took entire 
charge of their memorial book. The exercises occupied five days 
and two members of our staff attended and prepared a full account 
of all of the meetings, including the speeches. The townspeople 
contributed several articles, and we put the whole into perfect form 
for printing, submitted the manuscript to the committee and when 
they had passed upon it we printed and published a handsome and 
creditable volume. 

It costs nothing to consult us and to consider our plan for making 

any book you may have in mind. Our prices are reasonable and are 

based on the services rendered. References given if desired. 

Every genealogist should subscribe for our new quarterly,

Vol. XL. NEW YORK. APRIL, 1909. No. 2 

One of the founders of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. 

By Tohias A. Wright. 

To those who enjoyed the honor of his friendship his death 
recalls the delightful memory of a refined and noble character. 
Endowed with the attributes of a graceful and cultured per- 
sonality, gifted in a high degree with the power to acquire and 
transmit knowledge through the medium of his published writings, 
he became the associate and friend of the leading scientists and 
teachers of his day. They welcomed him to their ranks and the 
doors of their institutes were opened wide to him. His ready 
pen advanced the cause of associations and societies formed for 
the welfare and elevation of mankind, and he was present at the 
very inception and birth of many of them, our own Genealogical 
Society being among the number. 

Few men possessed greater ability in collecting and conserv- 
ing the vital statistics and primitive history of New York and 
New England than Dr. Stiles. While following his chosen pro- 
fession of physician for a livelihood, it is safe to say that more 
than one half his life was spent in historical and genealogical 
work, for which he received no pecuniary compensation. We 
might even marvel at the number and extent of the publications 
that came from his pen, though his whole time had been gives 
to this work. His industry, exemplary life and unselfish interest 
in his fellow man made him much beloved. To the average 
New Englander it is nobility enough to prove his own descent 
from one of the Pilgrim Fathers; he made it possible for 
thousands to trace their ancestry to the founders of our American 
Government and to honored names in the older governments of 
the world. 

Dr. Stiles descended through a long line of plain Connecticut 
farmers from John Stiles, a first settler of Windsor in 1636.* His 
father, Samuel Stiles, a bank note and map engraver, settled 
about 1830 in New York City, where his eldest son, II 
was born March 10, 1832. He began his education at the Gram-

78 Henry Reed Stiles, A.M., M.D. [April, 

mar School of the University of the City of New York; entered 
freshman at the University in 1848, and sophomore at Williams 
College, Mass., in 1849. Ill health prevented his graduation 
there, but in 1876 he received the degree of A. M. from that 
college. He studied medicine at the Medical Department of the 
University of the City of New York, graduating in 1855; as also 
in same year from the New York Opthalmic Hospital. 

He practiced for a few months in New York City, then in 
Galena, 111., with a partner, Dr. Timothy M. Wilcox; married in 
Jan., 1856, and removed shortly after to Toledo, Ohio, where for 
a few months he edited the Toledo Blade (daily and weekly), and 
in July of same year removed to Brooklyn, N. Y. In 1857 and '58 
he was a member of the firm of Calkins & Stiles, publishers of 
educational works, and of the American Journal of Education. 
From 1858 to 1861 he practiced his profession in Brooklyn, and in 
1861 removed to Woodbridge, N. J., where he continued in active 
practice until May, 1863, when his literary tendencies again 
prevailing he accepted the position of Librarian to the Long 
Island Historical Society at Brooklyn, of which organization he 
was one of the founders and a member of the first Board of 
Trustees named in the act of incorporation. Resigning this 
position in 1865, he engaged in literary pursuits until in February, 
1868, when he was appointed to a clerkship in the Bureau of 
Vital Statistics in the Brooklyn office of the Metropolitan Board 
of Health. Two months later he was made chief clerk of the 
Brooklyn office, which position he retained until the abolition of 
the Metropolitan Commission in 1870. He was then immediately 
appointed Sanitary (Medical) Inspector in the newly organized 
Board of Health of N. Y. City, and served as such in the 2d, 4th 
and 6th Wards until July, 1873, when he was appointed Medical 
Superintendent of the State Homeopathic Asylum for the Insane 
at Middletown, N. Y. He there superintended the erection of 
the first two asylum buildings, organized the asylum service, and 
placed the institution on the foundation of success as the first 
homeopathic insane asylum in the world under government 
control. Resigning his position here in 1877, he removed with 
his family to Dundee, Scotland, where he had been called to take 
charge of the Dundee Homeopathic Dispensary, then under the 
presidency of Lord Kinnaird, where he remained until 1881, 
when he was obliged by his own and his wife's health to return 
to America. Here he engaged in consultation with his old 
friend Dr. Frederick Humphreys in New York City. In 1888 he 
removed to Hill View on the shore of Lake George, N. Y., where 
he had a private establishment for the cure of mental and nervous 
diseases, but continued his association in N. Y. City until about 
1 90 1, when he gave up professional work here and devoted all 
his time to completing and preparing for publication his great 
work, the History of Wethersfield, Ct., which was published in 
two large volumes. 

As far back as 1859 Dr. Stiles published his History and 
Genealogies of Ancient Windsor, Ct., and in 1861 a Supplement to 
the same; also a monograph on Bundling in America. In 1863

he published the genealogy of the Massachusetts Family of Stiles; 

in 1S65 he was an active member of the " Faust Club " which pub- 
lished limited and choice editi i's History of Long 
Island, and ot Far man's Notes on Brooklyn, N. Y. (the I 
being fully annotated by Dr. Stiles). In 1865 be issued (limited 
edition) two volumes relating to the sufferings and experiences 
of the prison ship captives in Wallabout Bay, under the title of 
The Wallabout Prisons/tip Series, and also edited The Genealogy 
of tin- Stranahan and Josslyn Families. 

In 1867 he issued the first volume of his History of the City of 
Brooklyn, X. Y ., in 1869 the second, and in 1S70 the third. 'Phis 
work placed him in the foremost rank of historical writers, and 
is a lasting monument to his fame. It is remarkable that a man 
whose ancestors were English and who had previously no 
acquaintance, and (as he admitted to the writer) little sympathy 
with the Dutch element of our early beginning as a nation, should 
have chosen this stamping ground of the Dutchman, this city that 
they founded, as a subject upon which to spend years of the 
most indefatigable investigation and painstaking research, and 
make their history his crowning work. Surely the citizens of old 
Brooklyn owe him a lasting debt of gratitude. He wrote a Life 
of Abraham Lincoln (1865); 22 of the 50 biographies in Tin- Men of 
Our Day (1868), one or two campaign biographies of Gen : 
Grant, and portions of many other subscription books. Anion;; his 
numerous contributions torn and magazines are sketches 

of publishers in the Round Table for 1 866-7 i papers in the Historical 
Magazine, of which he was editor; letters and historical sketches 
in the Rahway 'Tunes (X. J.), under the nom-de-plume of "Tip 
Top." In 1S84 he edited and mtributed to the Illustrated 

History of the County of Kings and the ( ity of Brooklyn, 2 vols., 
quarto, and in 1887 completed the editing of the Humphrey 
Family Genealogy. 

He was a member of the Kin^s County, Orange and New 

York County Societies, State Hon pathic Medical Society, 

New York Medico- Lej;al Society; of the Clinical Club; was one 
of the organizers and first members of the Public Health Asso- 
ciation of New York City, and a founder and officer of the Society 
f>r Promoting the Welfare of the Insane in N. Y. City; a special 
lecturer on Hygiene and Sanitary Science in the X. Y Homeo- 
pathic Medical College, and Professor of Mental and Nervous 
Diseases in the X. Y Woman's Medical College and Hospital.

to the Record, its quarterly magazine. He was also a Life Mem- 
ber of the Long Island Historical Society, and an Honorary Mem- 
ber of the Northwestern Literary and Historical Society of Sioux 
City, Iowa. 

At one period Dr. Stiles was much interested in the subject 
and philosophy of Freemasonry, in which he took all the degrees 
of the New York Rite, and all of those in the Scottish Rite, up to 
and including the Thirty-second Degree. 

In bearing he was dignified, but his great kindly nature glowed 
through the reserve like a burst of sunshine, lighting the way to 
the hearts of his associates and friends. His quick wit and quaint 
humor made him a most delightful companion. After retirement 
to his country seat and when the physical infirmities of age were 
bearing heavily upon him he kept up a cheerful correspondence 
with friends, often illustrating his letters with humorous sketches 
and cartoons, in the art of which he was, like Thackeray, a master. 

In religion he was brought up a Presbyterian in the Old Spring 
Street Church in New York City, of which his father was an elder, 
but while in Scotland entered the communion of the Catholic 
Apostolic Church, and his creed was so broad that he considered 
not the faults of men, but loved them for their virtues. 

In 1856 Dr. Stiles married Sarah Ann Woodward, dau. of Rev. 
Charles Moore Woodward. Mrs. Stiles died in 1903. Their sur- 
viving children are Dr. Chas. Butler Stiles and Mrs. Elliott 
(Stiles) Truesdale, wife of Fred. E. Truesdale of Hill View, N. Y. 

Resolution adopted by the Board of Trustees of the New 
York Genealogical and Biographical Society on the occasion of 
the death of Dr. Henry Reed Stiles, Jan. 7, 1909: 

"The Board of Trustees of this Society record this tribute to 
the memory of Henry Reed Stiles, A.M., M.D.: That he gave a 
life to the cause of Education, to Genealogy, to the enoblement 
of the standards of his profession and to civic righteousness."

It is well known that the English records contemporary with 
the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers contain a wealth of infor- 
mation concerning the family history of the early colonists, not 
only of the New England but of the Southern settlements. The 
searchers of the Probate and Chancery Records, Feet of Fines, 
Manorial Court and Plea Rolls, Inquisitions Post Mortem, Star 
Chamber Court, Ship Money Tax, Subsidies and Parish Registers 
have found these documents a veritable treasure mine of genea- 
logical information. It is proposed in this and succeeding articles

1675, exclusive of what has already been published, and to thus

early American families with their English ancestors.

This long and interesting will of the unfortunate emulator of 
Smith and Raleigh in the endeavor to found a colony on the 
Delaware, is of much value, not only as confirming such historical 
records as exist regarding him but also in furnishing details, 
hitherto unknown, in the lite of this most strenuous and turbulent 
gentleman. Born of one of the most ancient of English families, 
the Plowdens of Plowden, in Salop., who had been there seated 
before the earliest extant records, his first known ancestor was 
Roger Plowden who accompanied King Richard to Palestine in 
the 12th Century. He was himself grandson of the eminent 
jurist of his own name,* by his second but only surviving son, 
Francis Plowden, Esq., whose second son he was.f 

He married, about 1610, Mabel,! daughter of Peter Mariner of 
Wanstead, Hants., a lady who brought him an ample jointure but, 
we fear, little domestic peace or happiness, and, although she 
bore him eighteen children, as we learn by his will, he was twice 
divorced from her and spent two years or more in the Fleet 
prison rather than pay her alimony, S while in his will he makes 
a scathing arraignment of her conduct, tempered by an ample 
provision for her future. 

His life seems to have been an adventurous one: in 1634 he 
was in Ireland, as we learn from the Visitation of Oxon. for that 
In 1642 he came with Evelin to Virginia, and in [643 with 
two faithful retainers, was marooned on Smith's Island, off the 
coast, by his mutinous crew* of servants, from which hi 
rescued by a passing vessel, and fell into the hands of the Swedish

Governor on the Delaware. He had had four years' travel in Ger- 
many, France, Italy and Belgium, served as an officer five years 
in Ireland and had been seven years in America before 1648.* 

The son, Thomas Plowden, seems to have inherited under the 
will of his fatner and his own will, proved in the Prerogative 
Court of Canterbury in 1698, and the certified verbatim copy of 
the Patent to New Albion may be found in the article by Prof. G. 
B. Keen in the Pennsylvania Magazine in 1883.! His third son, 
Francis Plowden, succeeded his father by his will and came to 
America to prosecute his rights and died in Maryland. His 
descendants registered their pedigree in 1774 at the College of 
Arms in London, but the title of Earl of Albion was never 
assumed after 1659. There is no trace of any such earldom to be 
found in the Irish records either as Albion or Plowden. J

will shows her to have been a widow of the name of Oliffe, with 
two unmarried children, Ann and Robert Oliffe, while he him- 
self had also had two children by a former marriage. He was 
excommunicated in Jan., 1611-12, in company with John Fowler, 
Clement Sanders and Robert Bulward,* who united with him in 
the authorship of a fierce attack on their former associates which 
was issued in July, 161 2, entitled "The Prophane Schisme of the 
Brownists," etc., and in May, 1613, followed this by " Brownisme 
turned inside out."t 

He was sent out to Virginia by Richard Wiseman, Nathaniel 
Basse and others^ and perhaps accompanied Sir Francis Black- 
well in 1 6 1 9 S although, as he represented his settlement (after- 
wards called the Isle of Wight Plantation) in the Assembly of 
. :iia in July of that year, it may have been earlier. The 
probate of his will informs us that he soon succumbed to the 
malarial climate of the Colony.

IQ09.] The Matthysen-Banckers of Sleepy Hollow. 87 


By Edw. Double day Harris. 

The name of Laurens Matthyzen first occurs in the records of 
the Dutch Church of New York, March 28, 16S6, in connection 
with the baptism of his daughter Anneken. Thereafter, until 
his disappearance from the records in 1704, his surname appears 
as Matthyzen, Matthyszen, Mathyse and Mathys. 

The name, however, under one or the other of its diverse 
spellings, is found upon the church records at a much earlier 
date. May 28, 1651, Abraham and Isaac, sons of Anthony Mat- 
thyszen, a negro, were baptized, followed in 1654 by Cosmus, 
and in the next year by Cecilia, of the same father. The parents 
were probably members of the free colored colony, rather than 
iwned by one of the burgomaster families of the town. 

[n 1662, Anna, daughter of Nicolaes Matthysz and Barentie 
Dircks, was baptized, but as subsequent baptisms of children of 
Cornel is and Barentie Dircks are recorded, it is probable that the 
scribe erred in the father's Christian name, and that Cornelius 
should be read for Nicholas in the first instance — particularly as 
nelis Matthyszen, van Stockholm, en Barentje Dircks, j. m. 
van Meppel," had been joined in marriage, Feb. 26, 1661. The 
children of this pair were (besides Anna, 1662) Mat thy S, 1665, 
Hendrick, 1669, Catharina, 1676, Sarah and Rachel, 1681, Cor- 
nelius appears also as a witness to the baptism of Barbertie, 
daughter of Jan Adamszen and Geertruyd Dircks in 1666. 

Annetje Matthys, the wife of Jan Ilendrickszcn, was the 
mother of a son Matthys, baptized in 167 1. She was undoubtedly 
the young maid of Fort Orange who was married to Jan Hen- 
dricks at Kingston in 1668, and there resided. 

One Jeams Matthyszen (and Matthys) was witness to bap- 
tisms in 1672 and 1677. 

Lysbeth Matthys and Matthys Janszen had daughter Engeltje 
baptized in 1678. 

The names of the witnesses in the various baptisms noted 
fail to suggest any connection between these Matthyszens and 
the Laurens Matthysen whose issue we attempt to follow. He 
might easily have been a son of Cornelius above, but nothing 
has been found to indicate any relationship with either the 
New York or Kingston families oi the name. 

The wife of Laurens' Matthysen was Tanneken Hendricks. 
Their family record, as gathered from the baptismal book of the 
Dutch Church in New York, is as follows: 

Anneken,' of Laurens Matthyzen and Jatnuken Hen- 
(In. xen, bap, March 18, 1 oSO; wit.: J. m der Yal .ind

dricks, bap. April i, 1688; wit.: Stephanus Van Cort-

bap. March 25, 1691; wit: Jan Hermanszen and

Fredrik, of Lourense Matthyse and Jannetje Hen- 
drix, bap. May 22, 1698; wit.: Brant Schuyler and 
Catharina Cortlant. 
The occurrence of the name of Philipse as a witness, sug- 
gesting an examination of the Sleepy Hollow records, the search 
there is rewarded by the discovery of this entry: 

Adolff, of Lourens Mathyse and Jannitje, his wife, 

bap. , 1 701; wit.: Gerridt Van Weerdt and 

Catharina Phillips. 
Then follows again in the New York records: 

Rombout, of Louwerens Mathys and Niese de Groot, 
bap. Nov. 5, 1704; wit.: Philippus Van Cortlant and 
Catharina Philips, widow. 
There is no further mention of Laurens Matthysen in con- 
nection with the Dutch Church of New York. But the Sleepy 
Hollow records continue the history. In 1705 he was a witness 
there at the baptisms of a child of Andries Van Dyk and his wife 
Geesje, and of a child of Lodewyck Ackerman and his wife 
Hillegond. Then follows: 

Barber (Barbara), of Lourens Mathysse and Niese, his 

wife, bap. June 16, 1707; wit.: Bastiaen Michgielze 

and Galant, his wife. 

In 1709 Lourens and his wife Niesje witnessed the baptism of 

a son of Andries Van Dyk and his wife Geesje. Then in 1711, 

comes this entry: 

Johannes, of Louwrens Banckert and Niessje, his 
wife, bap. March 21, 171 1; wit.: Abraham Van Dyck 
and Marytje de Groot. 
And on the same day Louwrens and Niessje Bankert witnessed 
the baptism of Jenneke, the daughter of Hendrick Kranckheyt 
and Antje, his wife. After the entry of 1709 the surname of 
Matthyse or Matthysen disappears forever from the Sleepy 
Hollow records, and Laurens Matthyse, his wife Niesse, and his 
children, thereafter are known as Banckens or Banckers. On 
21st March, 1710, the son Hendrick "Bankert" and his sister 
Mary tie (Maria) witnessed the baptism of Louwrens, the son of 
Hendrick Krankheyt, this being the earliest appearance of the 
name of Bancker, in any of its forms, upon the record. In the 
Register of Members of the Sleepy Hollow Church No. 57 is 
"Antje Banckert, wife of Henry Krankheyt," and Nos. 59 and 60 
are "Lowrens Mathysse Banckert and Niese De Groot, his wife." 

1909.] The Mat thy sen- Banders of Sleepy Hollow. 89 

The church was organized in 1697, and was put under the pastoral 
care of Domine Bertholf of Hackensack, but the member list was 
not compiled until some years later, thus accounting for Laurens 
and Niese being recor 1 kerts instead of Matthys. 

In Dr. Cole's presentation of the old record book of the con- 
gregation it is set forth that "after Lord Frederick Philipse had 
bought and come into possession of his land tract ( /. e. the manor 

ilipsburgh) he contracted with a number of people to come 
and live upon it without charge, that the land might be quickly 
put to use and settled." This was about the year 16S0. The 
second wife of the lord of the manor was Catharina, daughter of 
Orloff Stevens Van Cortlandt, and widow of Jan der Val. The 
Philipse marriage was contracted in 1692, and it seems very 
probable that Laurens Matthysen, who had been living near 
enough to New York (perhaps on the manor of Van Cortlandt) 

ive been enrolled in the Dutch church there fol 

trina der Val when she removed to the Philipse home. She 
had been, with her first husband, witness to the baptism of the 
first child of Laurens and Janneken in 1686. Stephen Van Cort- 
landt -sed the baptism of the second child in 16SS, and 
in 1696, Catharina again, as Philipse's wife, witnessed the baptism 
of Rombout. Then in 1698, in 1701 and in 1704, she stood suc- 
cessively for Frederick, Adolff, and the second Rombout, all 

last being the Philipse family names. It is easy to believe 
that Laurens Matthysen was one of those desirable people that 
the lord of the manor sought as settlers. Lady Catharina was 
instrumental in gathering the church at Sleepy Hollow, her 
name heading the list of members, and naturally Laurens and 
his wife transferred their association thereto from the more 
distant congregation in New York. 

The date of Laurens Banker's death has not been learned. 
He was certainly alive in 1735, anc ^ must then have been an 
aged man, probably as old as seventy-five years. His second 
(Agnes), was also alive at that time, 1735.

both living in P., were m. Jan. 16, 1724-5. He was elected a 
deacon of the Sleepy Hollow Church in 1736, again in 1738,

wife Niesse De Groot, was bap. at New York, Nov. 5, 1704. 
Rombout Bancke, j. m., and Maritie Davidson, j. d., both b. and

Rombout Banker and Barbera Banker were witnesses at a

appears on the church record. 

* It is worthy of notice that this is the only instance, so far discovered, 
wherein any son of Laurens Bancker named a son for the grandfather, an 
indication, perhaps, that the name had not descended in the family.

Johannes' P.\s< mr (Laurens'), the youngest son was bap.

1756, and Jacob Timber and nker, j. d., were m. in 1767. 

Besides the children of Laurens Bancker already enumerated, 

it would seem to be almost certain that there were two, and 

possibly three others. Antje, the wife of Hendrick Krankhcyt, 

we know from the church record of Sleepy Hollow, to have been 

a Bancker, and intimately connected with the head of the family. 

She may have been a younger sister, or a dau. b. before the 

beginning of the New York record of his children. It is not 

impossible that she was the dau. "Anneken" who was bap. in

% Rector from 1522 to 1524 when he died. Respecting the term parson 
Blackstone says it is the "most legal beneficial and honourable title that a 
Parish priest can enjoy." Cripps says: "The Parson is the Rector of a church 
Parochial. Such an one, and he only, is said ' vicam sen pcrsomam ecclesia 
gerere.'" Others derive the title from the French ' paroissien' (parochial) be- 
cause he was the resident priest of the Parish, and not sent out from a 
monastery, as a vicar would be.

and Catharina van den Berk. 

77 iii. Catharina, bap. Jan. 30, 1723; wits.: Richard Piero and 

Johannes van den Berg. 

73. Rachel 3 Hoppe (Matthijs A., 3 Andries'). Her marriage to 
Jillis Maundeviel occurred in N. Y., Dec. 2, 1721, where the 
church records give their issue, viz.: 

78 i. Davidt, 4 bap. March 7, 1722; wits.: Davidt Mandeviel 

and Marijtje, his wife. 

79 ii. Matheus (twin), bap. Aug. 17, 1726; wits: Mathijs 

Hoppe, Geertje Hoppe, Mr. Piero's* wife. 

80 iii. Juriaen (twin), bap. Aug. 17, 1726; wits.: Jiirian Man- 

deviel, Marijtje van den Berg. 

81 iv. Anna, bap. Dec. 2, 1739; wits.: Andries Hoppe and 

Elizabeth Bras, his wife. 

74. Johannes* Hoppe (John Hopper the Elder) (Matthijs A., 3 
Andries 1 ), was elected Collector for the Outward, Bowery Division, 
Sept. 29, 1733, and served for two years when he was made con- 
stable Sept. 29, 1735. A member of Capt. Gerard Stuyvesant's 
Company of N. Y. Militia in 1738, he served as lieutenant in 
Gen. Harmer's campaign against the Indians; was severely 
wounded and left for dead. He finally recovered. On May 30, 
1728, Maria van Norden became his wife, and his will, dated Oct. 
12, 1778, was proved July 19, 1779. It is not certain how he 
became possessed of the Hopper farm in Bloomingdale. It would 
be a fairer presumption that his father conveyed it to him than 
that he inherited it by right of primogeniture (as the conveyan- 
cers agree), for to assume otherwise would have to dispose of the 
elder son Andries and his descendants. By the terms of the will 
of 1778, the farm was to be divided into six equal parts among 

* Richard Perrow, an Englishman from New Barbadoes, m. Feb. 2, 1721, 
Geertje Hoppe, a young maid of Hackensack, living at the Great Kill. (The 
outlet of this stream was at present 42nd Street and the North River.) Fifteen 
acres of land were conveyed to Richard Pero of New Barbadoes in West 
Jersey by Mathijs Hoppe of the Groet Kill in the Outward, by deed dated 
May 29, 1722 (L. 30, 263). Consideration .£250; description: all that a certain 
Messuage, Tenement House and Parcell of Land Situate, laying and being at 
a place Called the Bowry in the Outward of the City of New York aforesaid, 
adjoining and being bound on the Southside by the Land of Gilos Shalloy, late 
deceased, and on the East side by a certain Swamp and the land of Jan 
Pretosge. Having on the northside to the Land of Mrs. Cortlandt and Maritie 
Solomons and on the west by the Highway, the whole containing 15 acres or 
thereabouts, being more or less and that in such manner as it hath been held 
and enjoyed upwards one and twenty years in a Peacable and Quiet Possession 
and Seizin by Adrian van Schaick and Rebecca van Schaick, deceased. 

Valentine locates this property on the Bowery near Stanton Street. It is 
more likely that the Swamp here mentioned was that from which Minitie-water 
(little brook) flowed, as Mrs. van Cortland held land in the neighborhood. The 
land of Solomons (later the Horn tract) extended on the south to 21st Street 
(Abingdon Road) from Bloomingdale Road (the Highway) to near Seventh 
Avenue. Minetta-water joined Bestavaar's Killetje or grandfather's creek on 
the van Cortlandt farm and the creek was named for him.

the survivors, viz.: Matthew, John, Andrew, Yallas and Jemima, 
the wife of John Horn of the Bloomingdale Road, as Riker's 
Harlem has it. The remaining portion went to his grandchildren, 
the issue of his deceased son Wessell. A map was to be drawn 
showing such division and six tickets prepared and numbered 
with the numbers of said six lots, whereupon the said six devisees, 
their heirs and assigns or guardians for them, were each to draw 
■ket and the number thereon should be that of the lot he 
or she should inherit by the devise. The farm road from the 
Commons to the river was to run through each one of the six lots 
"to always be and remain free to any or either of said devisees 
to pass and repass without any hindrance to or from his or her 
portion of the farm." Articles of agreement were entered into 
by the heirs carrying out the above directions on Feb. 4, 1782. 
• No. 2 on said map, was the family burial ground and this 
was exempted from sale to be resi ver for that purpose. 

The courts some fifteen years ago decided that the terms of this 
agreement were not explicit enough to exempt this ground from 
other uses and the site of that portion thereof which was not 
condemned for the opening of Ninth Avenue and 50th Str< 
now occupied by an apartment house. Lane was 

a uniform breadth of 28 feet throughout its length.

and Elizabeth van Norden, his wife.

in the Hopper plot. His will, dated Aug. 2, 1784, is of record in 
L 37, Wills, 219. Therein he devised to his dau. I.etty, wife of 
John Antonides, one-half of his house and land al I b and

* Garrit Stryker, one of the best-known residents of Flatbush, who was 
familiarly known there and in the old county towns of Kings County as " Uncle 
Garry," died on Friday night at his house, 873 Flatbush Avenue, in his seventy- 
second year. He belonged to the old Dutch family of Strykers who settled in 
Flatbush more than two centuries ago. In early life he conducted a general 
village store at Church and Flatbush Avenues, which was known as "Stryker's 
Corner." He was a member of the old Kings County Troop, a militia organi- 
zation which was disbanded several years ago. He has been an earnest 
republican since the party was organized, and a leading member of the Flat- 
Dush Reformed Church. He leaves a widow and two daughters. — N. Y. Sun,

igog.] Bacon Family. — Origin of the Surname. I 33 


Bv Leon Brooks Bacon. 

Grimbaldus, a Norman gentleman, it is said, came into Eng- 
land at the time of the Conquest, in company with William de 
Warenne, Bar! of Surrey, to whom he was related. He was an 
early tenant of Letheringsete, near Holt in Suffolk, and married 
and had issue: Randulph, Edmund and Ranulf, known as Ralph, 
who resided at Thorp, in Norfolk, and took the name Bacon. His 
place was called Bacons-Thorp. The family of de Warenne 
takes its name from the castle of Varenne, called later Bellen- 
combre, on the river Varenne, Department Siene-Inferieure, 
and was founded in England by William de Warenne, first 
of Surrey, who held at one time great estates in twelve English 
counties. He married Gundred, a child or stepchild of the 
Conqueror, and a sister of Gherbode, or Gerbod, another child of 
William the First, and was created Earl of Chester. 

There are no records in England before the Conqueror, the 
principal families descending chiefly from the victorious in- 
vaders, and no history of any family much before the eleventh 
century. Joseph Foster, an eminent genealogist, says in reference 
to the Bacons: "The early descent of this family, which was 
very widely spread through Suffolk, is variously set forth, as may 
be seen on reference to Davy's Manuscript Collections relating 
to the County." 

In Collectanea < icncalogica he has given a long list of the 
manuscript pedigrees in the British Museum which are of im- 
portance to students of this family history (Genealogy of the 
Bacon Family, Add. Ms [9,1 16). The early history of the family 
is in a state of bewilderment, the various conjectun s have been 
hazai' of the surname. Lower, in A Diction- 

ary of Family Names, say con is a seigniory in Nor- 

mandy, and that the name is in the Battle Roll. William I 
in 10S2, endowed the Abbey of the Holy Trinity at Caen, in 
Normandy (Taylor's Roman de Rou). lie also .says that from 
their connection with Bayeux they were sometimes Latinized 
De Bajocis. We find that on ■■'> t., 1329, Sir Richard de B 
was created a Knight of the Bath, as a Banneret, by Ed 
Third. Whether he came from

Exchequer is Roger Bacon, said to have been a brother of Philip 
de Colombieres (Taylor's Note in Wace's Chronicle 243). The 
method of obtaining the surname of Bacon is interesting. Ralph, 2 
son of Grimbaldus, was known by his place of residence as Ralph 
de Bacons-Thorp. The word Thorp is Saxon for village, Becuns- 
Thorp meaning Beech-tree Village. The early monumental 
brasses have effigies under trees, an evident allusion to the name. 
Sir William Bacon, or Sir Robert Bacon, is taken notice of 
among knights bearing banners in the reign of Philip the Third 
of France (1 270-1 285), and bore for his arms a beech tree. Roger* 
de Baconsthorp, son of Ralph, a was father of Robert,* who as- 
sumed the name of Bacon, and to make his identity clear during 
the change of patronymic, was styled Robert-Fitz-Roger, (Robert, 
son of Roger). He was a person of great power, and cousin of 
Geoffrey Ridel, Bishop of Ely. This may have been only a 
resumption of an ancient Norman surname which is still existing 
in the North of France. 

Registration of Pedigrees. 

For many years individuals interested in their personal Pedigrees have 
experienced the necessity for some Official Bureau where these Pedigrees 
could be formally registered for the benefit of posterity. 

In England some centuries ago this want was felt and its need supplied by 
the establishment of the Heralds' College. In the prosecution of its work in 
the earlier centuries, this College sent its Heralds into the various counties of 
England and there recorded the Pedigrees of important county families and 
exercised legal jurisdiction over those families in their use of Coats-of-Arms. 

The information thus gathered was known as the Herald's Visitations for 
these counties; and the results of their investigations have in many instances 
been subsequently embodied in printed volumes known as the " Visitations of 
Sussex," etc., etc. 

These Visitations have ceased years ago, but the Heralds' College still 
exists for the distinct purpose of permitting those of English birth and descent 
to formally record their Pedigrees, and to establish their right to bear Coats-of- 

In this country within the recollection of the present generation the 
necessity of formal Registration of Pedigrees was likewise felt, and was 
recognized within certain limited spheres by the establishment of the various 
patriotic and lineage societies which have sprung into existence during that 

Each and every one of these societies has accomplished most excellent 
work, within the limited field of its individual usefulness; and it is impossible 
to overestimate the value of the information which each of these societies has 
collected and now possesses within the sanctity of its archives. 

To a greater or less extent each and every one of these societies however 
is imbued with an idea that the Pedigrees of its members are sacred and must 
not be published in full for the benefit of the genealogical public at large. 

It therefore has resulted that, while these societies have accumulated a vast 
amount of most valuable genealogical information, yet, from the policy which 
they pursue, they have all, with remarkably few exceptions, failed in placing 
in published detailed form for the benefit of their members, and for that of the 
genealogical public at large, the information contained in their archives, as 
represented by the Pedigrees of their individual members; which Pedigrees 
are the titles to membership in these various societies. 

looa.] I 3 5 

The original Pedigrees of the members in many instances consist of one 
single copy; in some cases however duplicate copies exist, one filed with the 
| and the duplicate hied with the general society at its central 
11 ters. 

While it is improbable, yet it is possible, that simultaneous fire in both the 
local and general headquarters of these societies might result in the absolute 
loss of the valuable details of these Pedigrees, for the very reason that up to the 
present no steps have been taken to publish the Pedigrees in their fullest form. 
If they were so published, it would be practically impossible to destroy all of 
the published copies which would be located broadcast in the numerous 
libraries of this country. 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Societj predates 

the value of the information above referred to now locked up in the archives of 
these various Societies; and also appreciates the possibility of their loss to 
posterity for the above stated reasons; and, while not desiring to criticise the 
attitude of anv of these particular societies, yet it feels that they have failed in 
their duty to their members in so far as they have neglected to publish in the 
fullest detailed form the Pi these members lor the reason that the 

New York Genealogical and Biographical Society takes the broad and proper 
stand that these Pedigrees should not be hoarded foi the selfish satisfaction of 
particular Societies, but should be published for the benefit of all interested in 

The lineage books of these various societies referred to should be the most 
valuable source of genealogical information obtainable in this country. How- 
ever, from a practical genealogical standpoint, the genealogical student has 
long been impressed with the uselessness of the average lineage books o( these 
es, due to the fact that in the large majority of cases they furnish no 
definite information as to what the distinct line of descent of their members 
from certain ancestors may be; and almost never give in detail the vital facts 
of the successive generations of this line of descent. 

Due to the above stated existing condition of affairs, the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society, after much deliberation thereupon, has 
established a Department of its Society for the distinct purpose of Registration 
of Pedigrees of any and all who may desire to take advantage of the oppor- 
tunity thus off) 

In the establishment of this mw Department, Pedigrees will be i 
upon Application Blanks regularly prepared therefor, by the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society; and will be examined and passed upon 

-ir correctness by competent genealogical authority; and will bl 
lequently published in volumes of not less than two hundred and fifty Pedi- 
grees each, and delivered to Applicants for Registration whose Pedigrei 
Contained in that particular volume published. 

In publishing these Pedigrees, the vital facts such as birth, marriage and 
death of the two progenitors of each generation will be published m full. 

In due course of time these IUCI I - will line] their p-sliiii: place 

upon the shelves of the principal libraries of this country, as well as in tin- 
libraries of the individual applicants; anil thus the valuable information thus 
ecluded from any possibility of loss which human ingenuity 
can prevent. 

The facilities offered by this Department should appeal I

interest in their individual Pedigrees as if they were eligible to any or all of 
these Societies. 


The field of this Department is as above outlined of the broadest possible 
,i.upe; it being the purpose of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, if possible, to make this Department for the American public all and 
more than what the Heralds' College is for the English people. 

Full information as to the course to be pursued by those desiring to 
Register Pedigrees together with literature explaining cost, etc., will be sent to 
those interested upon application to the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society.

Lists and Returns of the Connecticut Men in the Revolution, I775-I7»3- *- lotn > 
8vo, pp. 489. Full Index. Hartford. 1908. 

The material in this volume supplements that already published in 1889 
and 190 1 in regard to the service of Connecticut men in the Revolutionary War. 
The greater part of the volume is made up of names of those who were in the 
Continental Regiments of the Connecticut line, to which the rolls of companies 
in service not previously printed have been added. The greatest care has been 
taken to include every name of record and to index the names under the 
correct spelling. The book will be a great acquisition to all attempting to 
determine the patriotism of their Connecticut ancestry and reflects great credit 
upon the Historical Society and its officers. The arrangement of these long 
lists is effective, the printing, paper and binding displays good taste, and trie 
volume is a workmanlike production. The Connecticut Historical Society may 
well feel proud of perpetuating the Revolutionary War Records in so excellent 
a form.

This is a descriptive and illustrative pamphlet of one of the great manu-

representative citizens both of the past and of the present. It is well printed 
and admirably illustrated with a number of half-tone reproductions of the 
leading professional and business men, places of interest, civic buildings and 
private residences and makes a popular souvenir for those interested in the 
development of this commercial centre.

America and absolutely nothing cone 1 ind. 

That he sprang from " the plain pi rasa tor the rank and 

file of those whose liberties he conserved, and high as they exalted the man, 
they were indifferent as to his origin. A vigorous effort some years ago 
resulted in tracing the family back to Samuel Lincoln of Hingham, Mass., in

■i:t but it was reserved for Mr. Lea to discover and [.rove beyond all 
possible doubt that for at least four generations the 1 

of the minor gentry and as land owners held an established position among the 
COUnty families of Norfolk. 

How the discovery was made, what it was and how the evidence is beyond

t> , Publications of the American Jewish Historical Society, No. 17. 
Paper, Octavo, pp. 266, with Index. Published by the Society. Baltimore. 1909. 

It is a strange fact that this ancient people, of so great historical interest, 
should until a comparatively recent date have given little attention to collecting 
and preserving the annals of their communal and family life. The genealogy 
of the Jews was set forth with particular niceness in the Old Testament, but 
during the persecution of the early Christian Era and the Middle Ages doubt- 
less little time or attention could be given by the patriarchs to preserving aught 
but the bare record of their misfortunes, wanderings and religious traditions. 

The object of this Society is to collect and publish material bearing upon 
Ancient Jewish History and no more valuable contributions can be made to our 
reading public than these records, so admirably gathered together and pub- 

This number contains an important vindication of Dr. Roderigo Lopez, 
Queen Elizabeth's Jewish Physician; the Jews of New Jersey from the earliest 
time to 1850; the early Jewish Colony in Western Guiana; Gen. Grant's 
Military Orders against the Jews; Lincoln and the Jews; the History of the 
Sheftalls of Georgia and other articles of interest. 

It may perhaps be urged that the importance of some of the articles, in 
this, as well as in the past publications of the Society, are more local than 
general and that the records are meagre as to genealogical data, but although 
the Jews as a nation are as old as history, their identity with this country is but 
recent. More will be heard of them in the future under a liberal jurisdiction 
and as a part of a free people, and it is undoubtedly to the credit of this Society 
to act as the pioneer association for Jewish historical research. 

The volume is admirably printed and a scholarly production, the only 
regret being that it is in paper covers rather than in a binding proper to pre- 
serve its valuable contents. 

Massachusetts Historical Society, The Commemoration of the 
Ter-Centenary of the Birth of John Milton at the First Church in 
Boston, on December oth, 1908. Paper, Small Quarto, pp. 31. 

This record of the exercises by descendants of the early New England 
Puritans in honor of the greatest member of the Puritan Triumvirate, viz.; John 
Hampden, Oliver Cromwell and John Milton, contains two interesting portraits 
of Milton, three of his Sonnets, facsimile title pages of the first printed editions 
of Milton s Minor Poems, /64J, of Paradise Lost, and of Paradise Regained 
together with addresses by Charles Francis Adams and William Everett, D. D. 

It is curious to note that notwithstanding the literary claims of the early 
New England Colonies no copy of Paradise Lost can be found on any Massa- 
chusetts book shelf prior to 1767, no American edition of this great poem was 
pnblished before 1777, and his complete works were not printed in this country 
until 1853, although the re-prints in the Spectator of Addison must have kept 
the early colonists familiar with the greatest of the Puritan writers. 

Henry Codman Potter — Memorial Addresses delivered before 
the Century Association, December 12th, 1908. Paper, Octavo, pp. 34. 
Privately printed. New York. 1908. 

These addresses made by Hon. John Bigelow, Nicholas Murray Butler, 
Marvin R. Vincent, Richard Watson Gilder and Joseph H. Choate, are fitting 
tributes to the late Bishop of New York, and an appropriate memorial to the 
churchman, scholar and friend from his fellow Centurians. 

It was the late Rev. Dr. Potter's fortune to guide the Episcopacy of New 
York in a period of municipal expansion and progress, filled with civic and 
ethical problems, and while a free nation has ever been jealous of paternalism 
and religious interference it is undoubtedly to the credit of this eminent church- 
man that he advocated good citizenship upon a God-fearing foundation and

226 West 58th Street, New York. 

This Society has for sale official forms of genealogical charts called 
" Register of Pedigrees." These registers are of two varieties, called " single " 
and "double" charts. They are each paper covered books of 11 x 16 inches in 
size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of names of ancestors in succes- 
sive generations. The single charts consist of 17 pages, and when filled in will 
give all of the ancestors in all ramifications for q generations, arranged so that the 
family name of each of the 16 great-great-grandparents occupies a page. Family 
names appear on the marginal index which is formed by the indentation of each 
leaf. The back of each leaf is arranged for special memoranda concerning the 
persons named on the page facing it. 

The double charts are practically two single charts combined. The object 
being to devote the first half of the chart to the registration of the complete pedi- 
gree of the male line, the second half for a like registration of the female line, and 
the double chart therefore provides for the registration of 10 generations in both 
male and female lines. 

The price of these charts to members of this Society is as follows: 
Single Charts, 75 cts. Double Charts, $1.50 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, $1.00 Double Charts, $2.00 

Members of the Society, or others who purchase these Charts and fill them in as fully as pos- 
sible and present them to the Librarian of the Society for filingin the Society's Library, will re- 
ceive a new one in exchange therefor without additional cost. These charts may be purchased by 
application to the Librarian. 

It is the desire of the Trustees that the members will supply themselves with these registers, 
fill them out as far as possible and file them with the Society. When received these will be bound 
in volumes, fully indexed, and will thus form a record of inestimable value to the Society. 

Those who have in their possession full information as to their individual ancestry are espec- 
ially urged to obtain these Charts, fill them in and file them with the Society, as information of this 
nature is very frequently lost to posterity owing to negligence on the part of those possessing it to 
make record thereof, in special depositories provided for that purpose.

Vol. XL. NEW YORK, JULY, 1909. No. 3. 


liv Hopper Striker Mott. 

The paternal ancestors of the subject of this biography were 
English and Welsh, the branch which came to this country 
settling in Massachusetts. The father of Mr. Rhoades was born 
in that State and removed, as a child, with his parents to Manlius, 
near Syracuse, N. V., and afterwards to Skaneatcles, where is 
situated the old farm which yet remains in the possession of the 
family. John Harsen Rhoades was born in New York City, 
Oct. 26, 1838, the son of Lyman Rhoades, Sr., member of the 
Pearl Street drygoods firm of Rhoades, Weed & Co., and was 
ited in private schools, lie began his business career at an 
early age, entering the ston Spring, Bradley & Buffum 

', X. V., at the age of 17. Later, he became an 
employee of Woodward, Lawrence & Co., and when 25 years old, 
was made junior partner in the drygoods commission house of 
Leonard. achofield & Co. The firm afterwards changed to 
Leonard & Rhoades, to Leonard, Rhoades & Grosvenor, then to 
Rhoades & Grosvenor, and finally to Grosvenor & Carpenter, 
He retired from this line of business in 1877, at the age of 38. 
He became President of the Northern Dispensary at the age of 
34 and Vice-President of the Eye and Ear Infirmary at 40. 

It was, however, as a banker that Mr. Rhoades made his 
mark. Having become a trustee of the Greenwich Savings Bank 

y continuously tor more than 35 
years and was for man Ini 

he bui 1 'in- Presidency of that institution, and 1 ontinued 

to discharge the duties of thai oil,, .- to the date of his death. 

The high position which Mr. Rhoades attained in financial 
circles is shown by the number of importanl posts in- held and 
by the weight given to his views on banking aif.urs, particularly 

such as related to savings banks, which were th( t his

.. . ition of the State, an organization designed 

to protect the inti ivm^s bank deposito • oded

ICtment of laws inimical to them. 

I 24 John Harsen Rhoades. [July, 

Among the positions of prominence which Mr. Rhoades 
filled, should be mentioned the directorships of the Bank of 
America, the U. S. Trust Co., the Greenwich Bank, and the 
Northern Dispensary, the Presidency of the Eye and Ear In- 
firmary and the trusteeship of the Roosevelt Hospital. These 
offices he retained till the close of his life. He was also a 
director of the Candelaria Mining Co., the Corralitos Co., the 
Lawyers' Title Insurance and Trust Co., Lincoln Trust Co., 
Madison Safe Deposit Co., U. S. Shoe Manufacturing Co., First 
Vice-President and Director of the Woodbridge Co., and a trustee 
of the Washington Trust Co. Besides the above, he served as 
Director of the N. Y. Zoological Society, the N. Y. Botanical 
Gardens and the American Museum of Natural History. He 
was a member of the Union League, Century, Metropolitan, 
City, Lawyers' and Lotos Clubs and of the American Geo- 
graphical, St. Nicholas and Municipal Art Societies. At one 
time, he was a trustee of the Women's Hospital and a Governor 
of the N. Y. Hospital. As a member of the Chamber of Com- 
merce he acted as chairman of its committee of finance and 
served as the executor of the estate of George Bliss, late of the 
firm of Morton, Bliss & Co., and I. N. Phelps. 

Ever since he cast his first vote for Lincoln, Mr. Rhoades 
was a staunch Republican and, though urged to go into politics, 
he always refused. The weight of his name, however, was ever at 
the command of his party. He was chairman of the New York 
City delegation to the Indianapolis Sound Money Convention, 
and took a direct concern in the affairs of his native city, where 
hu was prominent in several civic movements, among them the 
investigation by the Lexow Committee and that advocating 
better streets. As foreman of the Grand Jury a few years since, 
he rendered a noteworthy service by his forceful presentation of 
irregularities then existing in the Sheriff's office. This led a 
leading metropolitan paper to propose him as a suitable candidate 
for Mayor. Years before any definite steps were undertaken, he 
recommended the construction of a subway system. He took a 
deep interest in art and accumulated a fine collection of paint- 
ings. His summer home was at Seabright, New Jersey, and a 
fishing camp was located at Indian Rock, Maine. 

Through his mother Mr. Rhoades was connected with a long 
line of noted Dutch families. Cornelia Rachel Harsen, the 
daughter of Col. Cornelius Harsen, was born on the Harsen farm 
in Harsenville and baptized Aug. n, 1816, by the Rev. Alexander 
Gunn, pastor of the Bloomingdale Dutch Reformed Church. 
She married Lyman Rhoades and died March 17, 1900. Her 
father was a prominent and distinguished citizen of New York 
City until his death which occurred in 1838. At the age of 20, 
he became an Ensign in the 5th Regiment of Infantry, and three 
years later (1807), then Captain, he was named as one of a com- 
mittee of officers to organize a third regiment in the city. He 
was soon transferred to the Artillery, in which he became Major 
of the regiment which he assisted in forming. Thereafter, his 
talents, wealth and social position secured his rapid promotion. 

190Q.] rest of Essex Wills. I 55 

At the breaking out of the War of 1812, he was commissioned 
Lieut. -Col. of the nth Regiment, and later in the sam< 
became Commander thereof. During that war his command was 
detailed to Bedloe's and Ellis's Islands, in the harbor. In early 
life he was a hardware merchant in Cherry Street, and in 1817 in 
the drygoods business. In 1N32 he became an incorporator of 
the Erie Railroad. Among the old New York families with 
which Mr. Rhoades was connected on the maternal side were the 
Dyckmans, Cozines, Webbers, van Couwenhovens and Hoppers. 
The Harsen mansion was built in 1701 and stood in the block 
between 70th and 71st Streets, Bloomingdale Road and the 
Hudson river till very recent times. It was a noted landmark in 
the New York of old. 

On October 29, 1862, Mr. Rhoades married Miss Annie G., 
daughter of Benjamin P. Wheelwright, and had three children: 
llarsen Rhoades, Mrs. Benjamin Ogden Chisholm and 
John Harsen Rhoades, Jr. He died at his residence, 559 Madison 
Avenue, Dec. 6, 1906, and the funeral was held at All Souls' 
Church, 4th Avenue, corner 20th Street, on Saturday, Dec. 8, 
before a congregation which crowded the edifice, among whom 
were delegations from the numerous organizations with which 
he had been connected. A tablet to his memory has lately been 
unveiled in the church. Thus ended the career of a man who 
had endeared himself to all with whom he came in contact, by 
his gracious personality, his genial manner and his kind dis- 
position. Vale.

1 60 Lists of Germans from the Palatinate who came to England in ijoq. [July, 


(Continued from Vol. XL, p. ioo, of the Record.) 

The following lists are copied from the original documents 
preserved in the British Museum Library, London, England, and 
should be of the greatest genealogical interest to those families in 
the States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and else- 
where, which claim descent from the so-called Palatine settlers. 
These lists have never before been printed to the knowledge of 
the Editor, and it should be noted that the word " son " or " sons " 
and "dau." or "daus." followed by figures denote that the heads 
of the family had as many sons or daughters, as there are figures, 
and that these sons and daughters were of the respective ages 
denoted by the figures. The word "wife" indicates that the 
head of the family was married and that the wife was living. 
The abbreviations "Ref.," " Luth.," "Bap." and "Cath.," mean 
that the family belonged to the Reformed, Lutheran, Baptist or 
Catholic Churches.

1 68 The Hoppe-Hoppen-Hopper Lineage. [J»'>. 


By Hopper Striker Mott. 

(Continued from Vol. XL., p. 128, of The Record.) 

By inadvertence four of the children of Johannes 3 Hoppe 
were omitted from the proper place on page 125 of the April 
issue of the Record. Their consecutive numbers in the lineage 
should be 84, 85, 86 and 87. Having lost their position it becomes 
necessary to interpolate them as 83a, 83^, 83c and 83^. 

83a iii. Johannes,' b. May 21, bap. May 26, 1734; wits.: Johan- 
nes Webbers and Annatje van Norden, his wife. 
83^ iv. Jacomijntie (Jemima), bap. Dec. 29, 1734; wits.: her 
parents. She m. John Horn, Aug. 19, 1770, on whose 
farm at Broadway and 23d Street are now located 
many important hotels, amusement edifices and re- 
tail shops. 
83*: v. Andries, bap. Feb. 27, 1736; wits.: Andries Hoppe and 

Elizabeth Bras his wife. 
83^ vi. Yallis, bap. Dec. 3, 1738; wits.: Jillis Maundeville and 
Rachel Hoppe, his wife. 
83a. Johannes* Hoppe (John Hopper the younger) (Johannes,' 
Matthijs A.,* Andries'), m. (1) Wyntie, dau. of Nicholas and An- 
neke (Cowenhoven) Dyckman, April 21, 1759, who was b. July 16, 
1735. They had but one child, Maria,* b. March 31, and bap. 
April 6, 1760; wits.: Mattheus Hoppe and Aaltje Jacobs; m. 
James Striker of Striker's Bay, Sept. 23, 1780. She d. Sept. 20, 
1786. By his (2) wife, Sarah, eldest dau. of Balam Johnson Coz- 
ine, he had no issue. She d. Dec. 23, 1823. By commission dated 
Oct. 23, 1776, he was appointed 2nd Lieut, in Col. Brewerton's 
Regt. of the Outward. He had belonged to the City Militia prior 
to the breaking out of hostilities and continued in the King's 
service with his comrades. This was done generally at this try- 
ing time. Many felt that it was the only way to preserve prop- 
erty rights and save their families from indignity. Hopper re- 
mained here but a few months abandoning rank by so doing and 
enlisted for three years on Jan. 1, 1777, in the 4th Company, 2nd 
Regt. of the Line, under Washington. He is entered as having 
deserted Dec, 1779 (Archives State of N. Y., Vol. I, p. 219), but 
as Comptroller James D. Roberts, the compiler, states in the 
preface to N. Y. in the Revolution, Second Edition, p. 14, such a 
designation must not be taken too seriously. Hopper was doubt- 
less absent at roll-call. At any rate he re-enlisted July 5, 1780, 
in the Lieut. -Col. 's Co. 4th Regiment. He took his discharge 
Dec. 15, that he might be promoted Ensign of the 2nd Regiment 
of Continental Troops (Jersey Line). A committee of Congress 
says Stryker's Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Revolution, 
was appointed during the summer to make the "arrangement"

of the officers of the 1st, and, and 3rd Regiment, which arrange- 
ment was confirmed by a joint meeting of the Legislature on 
Sept. -•<>, 1-S0. It was under this assignment that Hopper re- 
ceived his commission. It is family history that he rose to the 
rank of General. This cannot, however, be proved at this day, 
so many of the records of service having been lost, but that he 
was called by that title is in evidence. He was in receipt of a 
pension in this State (A r . V. in the Revolution, p. 272.) He owned 
a pew in the Bloomingdale Dutch Reformed Church of which his 
brother Andrew was a founder. Dying at the age of 85 years 
and 3 months on Aug. 2, 1819, he, as also his second wife and her 
mother, were interred in the Hopper plot at 50th Street and 
Ninth Avenue. The funeral took place at the homestead, on the 
north side of Hopper's Lane, on a site at present located on the 
north side of 51st Street just west of the Albany Apartment 
house. Will of record in New York Co.

Andrew Hopper's city house was on the southeast corner of 
Ann Street and Broadway. This he bought in 1773 of Capt. 
Thomas White (vide N. Y. Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. XXXVII, 
p. 224) and adjoined the property of Christoffel Stymetz, now 
the site of the Park Bank. The Hopper and Stymets parcels, 
known as 218-220 Broadway, became vested in Francis Olmstead 
and were called the "City Saloon." In 1S35, this building and 
the ball-room therein were rented to Alexander Welch for 10 
years at $1,900 per annum, and in 1852 to Phineas T. Barnum, 
where he carried on his museum. The term was for 25 years at 
$10,000 and taxes and assessments. In 1865, the premises were 
sold to James Gordon Bennett for $500,000 and here the N. Y. 
Herald was published for many years. 

The directory of 1786 makes Hopper a merchant at 71 Chat- 
ham Row. On the property which he had inherited under the 
agreement of 1782 above mentioned, his father had built for him 
the residence which became such a conspicuous object on the 
Bloomingdale Road, at later 50th Street, on the site of the pres- 
ent American Horse Exchange. This was completed at the date 
of his marriage and in this country seat three of his four children 
were born. Here he carried on farming, the farmer's house be- 
ing in the rear near present Seventh Avenue. In 1789, he was 
an Elder in the Collegiate Church and a supervisor of its school, 
organized in 1633 and the oldest seat of learning in the country 
in continuous existence. Its building is now at 77th Street and 
West End Avenue. In 1815, he was a founder and original Elder 
of the Bloomingdale Dutch Reformed Church, then at what be- 
came 70th Street and the Bloomingdale Road and occupied this 
position until his death. On Dec. 9, 1813, its pastor, Dr. Gunn, 
united him in marriage to Elizabeth Guest, the widow of Peter 
Arell. He d. April 4, 1824, and his widow Elizabeth Dec. 25, 
1825, having had no issue. Both were interred in the family plot. 
His children were:

At the age of 18 he entered the office of the Secretary of State at 
Albany as a clerk. He served as Clerk of the Assembly for two 
winters and Nov. 3, 1791, he was appointed Deputy Secretary of 
State under Secretary Lewis Allaire Scott. A Lieut, in the 5th 
N. Y. Regt. (Col. Hughes), 1793, he was promoted Captain in the 
same command, 1795. He was treasurer of the "Military Society" 
instituted for improvement in the military art and consisting of 
the officers of the 2nd and 5th Regts. He remained Deputy Sec- 
retary under Gov. Jay until 1802, when he removed to Onondaga, 
at which date he tendered his resignation from the Military. In 
1799, he was admitted an honorary member of the Law Society 
of Albany and in the spring of 1802, became Clerk of Onondaga 
County. The following year he was appointed Supreme Court 
Commissioner. He held the office of Clerk until 1818, with the 
exception of one year (181 1). He acted as Marshall for taking 
the Government census of 1810, at a time when Onondaga Coun- 
ty comprised the present counties of Cortlandt, Onondaga, and 
part of Oswego. During the war of 1812 he was keeper of mili- 
tary stores at the Arsenal at his home place, and U. S. Commiss- 
ary. For nineteen years he was postmaster of Onondaga Hollow, 
and d. there June 30, 1848, aged 79. The portrait reproduced was

in all move the upbuilding of the then new country of 

central New York. He was largely instrumental in the estab- 
lishment in 1811, : newspaper of the country, The Lynx, 
published by Thomas Crittenden Fay, in which office Thurlow 
Weed, afterwards editor of the Albany Evt ning Journal, made 
his bow as a printer. In 1813, < Mmndaga Academy, one of the 
famous institutions of learning in the early history of the State, 
was organized and incorporated, in jjood part through Hopper's 
efforts, he being a liberal subscriber to the endowment fund and 
a trustee from its establishment to his decease. 

Politically, he was a leader in the county of the Democratic 
party and is said to have been "a man of remarkable kindness 
and docility of disposition, very amiable, courteous, social and 
obliging. Few men, who have been so much in public life, 
escape with so little censure or expose themselves to fewer

built on his part of the family farm in Harlem, a house which, on 
his death in 1782, passed with the surrounding property to Hop- 
per. This was the fact which caused Riker to mention the fam- 
ily as quoted at the beginning of these articles. The quaint old 
stone house stood on Second Avenue, west side, between 83d and 
84th Streets. There are two pictures of it in existence. Its 
sides were indented with shot from British warships. The site 
was historic ground. Gen. Howe held Hoorn's Hoek with his 
right division while the encampment of his left was posted across 
the Island to Bloomingdale at Striker's Bay. A powerful Amer- 
ican battery was located at the Hoek during the Battle of Har- 
lem Heights, which was not silenced. 

Irving relates how certain Pavonians started to find a more 
eligible site for their habitations and the disaster which befell 
them. After vanquishing some savages in one of the inlets on 
the East River shore, on which bay they bestowed the name of 
Kip, in honor of Hendrik Kip who was of the party, they were 
shipwrecked in the rapids at a place they called Helle-gat. The 
author continues: " The woe-begone heroes of Communipaw eyed 
each other with rueful countenances; their squadron had been 
totally dispersed by the late disaster. Some were cast upon the 
western shore, where, headed by one Ruloff Hopper, they took 
possession of all the country lying about the six-mile stone, 
which is held by the Hoppers at this writing." However verac-

mother was descended from Wm. Bradford, first Governor of Plymouth Col- 
ony. He was graduated from Bowdoin College in 1843, and was preceptor of 
Belfast Academy. Admitted to the bar in Boston, he held there several mun- 
icipal offices. In 1865 he went to Colorado, crossing the plains by mule team. 
Settling in Central Citv, he served in the Territorial Senate, became interested 
in several mines in Gilpin County and was a part owner of the new Boston 
mine. He married in 1880, Lettie E. Hurd, the daughter of Z. Lawrence 
Beebe, and besides his widow, left two brothers, one a physician living in Bos- 
ton. The funeral was held in Syracuse, the Rev. S. R. Colthrop officiating and

he denominates himself a farmer and bequeathed to his wife all 
his estate lying in the Outward and known by the name of the 
Great Kills, during her life. Then to his three sons, John, Mat- 
thew and William, share and share alike. Appoints his wife and 
two elder sons and his friend Jacob van Norden, executors. The

were bap. June 3, 1747, and that the witnesses were Andries

its modern designation. Its members are to be distinguished 
from the " Dutch" family of New England, from the descendants, 
mostly most worthy, of that old matrimonial scamp Laurens 
Duyts of Holstein, known as the Big Dane or Great Shoe, whose 
sale of a wife cost him an ear, and from the family of Du 
Sauchoy, now " Dissoway," members of which, by one of those 
errors which render indices of little value, are given as "Duyts" 
(19 Feb., 1676; N. Y. D. Ch., 2-121). 

The evident meaning of the name, which is a mere tab or 
label or nick-name, giving no clue either to the patronymic or 
family name, is "the Dutch Man" — man, as the old divine wisely 
inspired says, at all times embracing woman, and " Dutch," 
from the date of its early use more probably implying a Hol- 
lander than a German. Today every village has its " Dutchman," 
who most probably is a German; but as early as 1689, when the 
Dutchers first appear as such, the proper term for a German was 
"Hoogdeutser" or " High Dutchman." Thus, in the 17 14 Ulster 
Co., N. Y., List of Freeholders (Clearwater's Hist, of Ulster Co., 
66), one Hermanus, a German, appears as " Hermanus de Hoog- 
deutser," while two of the Dutcher family appear, one as "Cor- 
nelis de Duytcher," and one as " Dirck de Duytser" {id., 67, 69). 

2 Jan., 1729, in Connecticut, " Ellen Ducher, a Dutch girl" appears, 
showing an independent use of the term (Early Conn. Marriages, 
4th Book, 87). 

Down to 1700, and even later, the Netherland people always 
referred to themselves as Duytsen or Neder Duytsen, whence the

French is of ox from; but in Dutch the definite article "the." 

The U. S. Census of 1790 shows 34 Dutcher heads of families, 
scattered in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and Vermont, 
but all are of identical origin. 

The early de Duytschers, distinctly so called in church record, 
are eight in number, and of one, Mageltje Roelofse, i. e., Mathilda, 
daughter of Roelof, No. 5 hereinafter, the parents are easily 
determinable. She was not the daughter of Roelof Corneliszen 
van Houten, as is suggested in "Van Houtens of Bergen," 27 
N. Y. Gen., 183, but was the daughter of Roelof Willemszen and 
Willempje (i.e. Wilhelmina) Thyssen, and is called "de duytser" 
once in Kingston entry 1414, 15 Aug., 1703. 

Of the remaining seven, six — Cornelis, No. 7, Cornelia, No. 8, 
Catharine, No. 9, Dirck, No. 10, Roelof, No. 12, and David, No. 13, 
all first appear at Kingston, in the church records, as parents, 
and the seventh, Barent, No. 11, who appears at Tarrytown, and 
Cornelis, Dirck, Roelof and David are all stated in one entry or 
the other to have been born in adjacent parts of Ulster Co., close 
to or at Kingston. It was soon apparent that these seven were 
brothers and sisters, for all born or appearing at or near Kingston, 
at approximate dates, they acted frequently as godparents to 
each others children. Thus Cornelis, 7, and Cornelia, 8, were 
sponsors to Dirck's son Cornelis, 36. Catharine's husband Jan 
Roeland, 9, was sponsor to Cornelia's son Samuel Wels, 26. 
David, 13, was sponsor with Maritje Wels, 22, to Dirck's son 

ioog.] The Duti fur Family. I 87 

David, 35. and to Roelof's daughter Margaret, 56, and Dirck, 10, 
to Rcelof's son Johannes, 52, etc. This sponsorship continues 
among those of the next generation, and the same friends act as 
godparents to many of the early Dutchers. The military affili- 
ations of the men were close, and resulted finally in a quota of 
over 40 men and two captains in the Revolution. When, there- 
fore, it appeared that all the original Dutchers who had sons had 
a son John — being the first son of Barent, of Dirck and of Roelof, 
the second son of I 'avid, the first son of Catharine by her husband 
Jan Roeland, and the second son of Cornelia, it was evident the 
common father was a John, a conclusion rendered positive by the 
fact that Cornelia appears once as Cornelia Jansen (K., 64), and 
Roelof once as "rullof Johnson " while in the militia. So, also, 
in similar fashion, the common mother's name is demonstrated 
to be Margaret, being the name of the only child of Cornelis, 
the second daughter of Dirck, of Roelof, of Barent and of Cor- 
nelia; Catharine having no daughter, and the birth date of 
David's daughter Margaret being uncertain. Nothing in Dutch 
genealogy is more certain than such an inference, and it was, 
therefore, with a sense of inevitable fulfillment of prophecy that 
some three years ago, I discovered "Jan Willemsen ye Duitcher," 
3, who 1 Sept., 1686, in Ulster Co., N. Y., appeared and took the 
oath of English allegiance at the same time that "Cornelis ye 
Duitcher," 7, failed to appear {Hist, of Ulster Co., 69-70). 

This Dutch game of "Japhet in Search of a Father" thus 
settled down to an effort to trace the particular John, son of 
William, and to ascertain his relationship, which if any had to be 
that of brother, to the Roelof, son of William, whose daughter 
M ■- - '-Itie appears once as "de Duytser." Our Jan Willemszen 
was early proved to be neither Jan Willemszen Yselsteyn, nor 
Scuth, or van Burculo, or van Cujanes, or van Leyden, or van 
Leuven, or van Loosdrecht, or Bennet, or Vertein, or Cornel, or 
Rome(n) van Werkendam, or van Amsterdam, or Sebra, or 
Schutt, or any of the remaining Jans "Willemzen" catalogued in 
Bergen's Early Settlers of Kings Co., N. V., or Jan Willemszen 
Hoogtaeling, husband of Barbara Jans, and prominent at King- 
ston, whom Burhans, in error, was inclined to identify with Jan 
Willemszen van Loosdrecht, who settled at Bergen. But our 
Jan may well be identical with the Jan Willemszen, who with his 
wife Margaret or Grietje Cornelis, 22 Jan., 1662, Kingston entry 
13, had baptized a son Willem, evidently their first son, and who 
may be identical with Jan Willmsen Brant, who with his wife 
Gritye Cornelissen, 24 April, i<>*4_, had baptized a son Tys, , <■ 
Mat hew, no where else appi ( K., 2 r 7). The wife's 

name Margaret is strong confirmation of this identification, and 

her full name Margaret Cornelisse, ;. e. daughter of Cornelis, 

explains Cornelis, 7, and possibly Cornelia, 8, and it is almost 
conclusive th it the young facob I'.irentsen Cool, who with his 

recently married wife, Marretje Simons, appeared as sponsor to 

this couple's first son Willem, 6, supra, 22 Jan., 1 66a (K, 13),

to Cornelia Jansen de Duytser's son Jan, 25 (K., 12S1), the name 
fan in each case preserving the name of Jacob Cool's early 
friend Jan Willemszen. As early as 9 Oct., 1650 (N. Y. D., 2-28), 
"Jan Helmszen" appears as sponsor at the baptism of Jacob 
Barentzen Cool's brother Arent; but he may be the Jan Helmsze 
van " Barlt," Schleswig-Holstein, of " Rensellaer-Bouwier manu- 
script" mention (p. 827, note). It impossible that Grietje Cornelis 
was daughter of the Cornelis Leenderts whose sister Marretje 
became wife of Barent Jacobsen Cool, and so mother of Jacob 
Barentsen Cool. The name "Willemsen" or "Williamson" was 
common among the Dutch, German and English, and the early 
existence of several Williamsons known as " Englishmen," ex- 
plains the need of the tab "ye duitcher" used as early as 1686 on 
the " Dutch " Jan and his children. Even a Jan Brandt, " Engels- 
man, i. e. Englishman, appears 30 Dec, 1646 (N. Y. D., 2-21), 
with a son Jan. 10 Nov., 1641, there was a Willem Willemszen, 
" Engelsman" (N. Y. D., 2-12) and 11 Aug., 1672 (N. Y. D., 1-36), 
Jan Willemszen of Huntington, England, was refused marriage 
to Margaret Viskaeck (Fiscock). 19 Feb., 1689, a Robert Wil- 
lemszen "from England," married Grees (/. e. Grace) Cerant 
(N. Y. D., 1-66), and 14 Sept., 1673, at Kingston, Ulster Co., a 
Dutch "Jan Willemse" was lieutenant of the local militia, while 
at Shrewsbury an English "John Williamson" held the same 

That Jan Willemszen and Roelof Willemszen were, almost 
certainly, brothers is indicated by the following facts: both 
appear about the same dates, 1660-3, a t Beverwyck, Fort Orange, 
or the present Albany, each the son of a William. Jan, moving 
to Ulster Co., has a son Roelof. Roelof's daughter Mageltje, 5, 
moving, also to Ulster Co., has as sponsors to her child Mar- 
retje, No. 19, 25 Aug., 1700 (K., 1189), Roelof de Duytser, 12, and 
Catharina de Duytser, 9, Jan's son and daughter, and 15 Aug., 
1703 (K., 1414), Mageltje appears as "de Duytser." Robert 
Sanders of Albany, is sponsor to Mageltie's daughter Jannetje, 17, 
and Robert's son Barent is in his turn sponsor to Roelof de 
Duytser's son Johannes, 55. Marytjen Wels, 22, daughter of 
Cornelia de Duytser, 8, is sponsor to Hendrick, 123, son of 
Mageltje's daughter Marretjen, 19, and Mageltje's daughter 
Willemptie Oosteroom, 16, having married Hendrick Buys. 
Hendrick, 6 Oct., 1714 (N. Y. D., 2-377), is sponsor with Dirkje 
Lammerse (Smit), whose cousin soon after married Barent Duyt- 
scher, 11, and Mynno (Wilhelmina) Buys, a niece of Hendrick, 
married Johannes De Duytscher, 42, son of Barent, 11. 

Mr. Whittemore, in his De Duytscher Genealogy, mainly de- 
voted to the descendants of Roelof de Duytscher, 12, suggests a 
Dutcher descent from the " De Dechiers" of France, and thereby 
supplies the inevitable coat of arms. In this country he finds the 
ancestor in Dirck Corneliszen Duyster, who in 1630 was employed 
by Killaen Van Renssellaer, and was one of those who for him 
took title to Rensselaerwyck. Dirck's son he assumes to be 
Cornelis ye Duitcher, No. 7, who is taken to be the father of the 
other Dutchers. As Cornelis was not born until 1667, and did 

1 909.) The Dutch fr Family. I 8y 

not marry until 1091, this theory was always untenable. The 
recent publication of Van Kensselaer-Bouwier Manuscripts (p. 700 
and references there given) shows that Dirck was drowned at sea 
in 1636, unmarried, and that his half-brother Willem died in 1635 
leaving no sun, Willem being an artist or painter of Amsterdam. 
'• Duyster" means the twilight or gloaming 

The record, therefore, begins: 
1 W11 mki.m,' the name of the father of Roelof and Jan. Re- 
membering that Roelof is stated to be "van Heerden," it is just 
possible that Wilhelm may be the Willem Janszen "van Heer- 
den," who 18 Dec, 1654, m. Leent^e Martens, the widow of the Net -tme. »ne

Kuyter was slain by the Indians, March, 1654, and his widow, 
probably for protection in those troublous times, re-married 
without delay, and was herself massacred 15 Sept., 1655; her 
husband by some means escaping (Riker's Harlem, 92, 160, 162, 
etc ). As Leentje Martens appears as early as 20 Oct., 1639 (N. 
Y. D., 2-10), she was probably a matured woman at her re- 
marriage, and the entry gives no information whether Willem 
Janszen was a widower or single. Heerden was a very small 
village, about 30 miles N. N. E. from Arnheim in Gelderland, 

nd. But the matter is pure conjecture, and Willem's issue, 
if any, must have been by an assumed prior marriage.

3. "Jan" Willemszen ye Duitcher " (Wilhelm'). 1 Sept. 1689, 
Jan appears as "ye duitcher" in Ulster Co., N. Y., and took the 
oath of English allegiance (Hist. Ulster Co., 69). "Jan Willems- 
zen" with the subsequently notorious Aert Peterszen Tack, 5 
Aug, 1660, purchased of Johanna de Laet, widow of Jan de 
Hulter, and wife of Hieronymus Ebbinghs of Hamburg, 48 
morgens, 2 rods of land at Esopus, for 600 guilders, payable in 
three annual instalments in grain and beavers (Pearson's Rens- 
selaerwyck', 276-7). Jan Willemszen made his mark. Tack, 14 
Aug., 1661 (K., 7), appears in Kingston, and "Jan Willemszen" 
the same year (1897, Holl. Soc, 131). Burhan's Genealogy, p. 2, 
mentions an unconfirmed statement of the late Jonathan W. 
Hasbrouck that in 1663 "Jan Willemszen and his wife" in court 
at Kingston referred to Jacob Burhans as capable of testifying to 
their good character, as he came from their town Einigen in 
Brabant. 18 Sept., 1663, "Jan Willemszen " was fined for ven- 
turing outside the Kingston stockade, without a guard, in violation 
of the decree made after the Indian massacre of 7 June, 1663. 
14 Sept., 1673, "Jan Willemszen" was lieutenant under Capt. 
Matheis Mathysen at Kingston (N. Y. State Hist. Rept., 1-383), 
and 1686-7 "Jan Willemszen" was corporal under the same 
captain, with " rullof Johnson" as a private (id. 2-451), and in 
1687 "John Williamson" with "Barend a holender" (? Barent de 
Duytscher, 11), were "fottmen" in Capt. Tomes (Thomas) Ger- 
sones' Co. (id. 2-449). 

Assuming, as I believe to be correct, that Jan Willemszen ye 
duitcher is identical with Jan Willemsen, husband of Grietje 
Cornelisse, the children are: 

6 Willem, 1 b. 22 Jan., 1662 (K., 13); wit: Jacob Barentszen

pottery at or near Kingston. Volckertjie Jans was

New Castle in Delaware, pp. 72, 75, 90, 196, 198. Har-

About 1750, Christopher Billopp was appointed Chief of Police of Rich- 
mond County. He was repeatedly a member of the Colonial Legislature. 
Immediately upon the arrival of Sir William Howe's army on Staten Island 
(July 3, 1770), Christopher Billopp was commissioned a Lieutenant-Colonel of 
militia, and he organized a battalion of infantry, composed of Loyalists, or 
native Staten Islanders. He was practically the Provost Marshal of Staten 
Island throughout the Revolution. 

The Colonists of New Jersey were very bitter in their hostility to Billopp, 
and on two different occasions made him a prisoner of war. 

After the war, Colonel Billopp, with fifty-four families of Loyalists, in 1783, 
petitioned Sir Guy Carleton for extensive grants of land in Nova Scotia. 
Colonel Billopp soon after went to New Brunswick, in that Province, where 
for many years he bore a prominent part in the administration of public affairs. 
He was a member of the House of Assembly and the Council, and on the 
death of Governor Smythe in 1833, he claimed the Presidency of the Govern- 
ment, and issued his proclamation accordingly, but the Hon. Ward Chapman 
was a competitor for the same station, and was sworn into office.

The Brewster Genealogy, 1566-1907. A Record of the Descen- 
dants of William Brewster of the " Mayflower," Ruling Elder of 
the Pilgrim Church which founded Plymouth Colony in 1620. By 
Emma C. Brewster Jones of Cincinnati, Ohio. Two volumes. Cloth, Octavo, 
pp. 1415. Full Index. The Grafton Press, New York. 1908. 

The foundation for this work was a manuscript collection made by Lot 
Edward Brewster in 1847, upon which his granddaughter, the compiler, has 
built up an exhaustive genealogy of this leading New England Puritan. Her 
enthusiastic and persistent research, coupled with great natural aptitude in 
genealogical compilation, has resulted in the only authoratative and accurate 
record of William Brewster, leader of the earliest Massachusetts Colony, and 
his descendants. Eleven generations, through four of the grandsons of Elder 
Brewster, are traced out, approximating forty-one hundred families of the 
name, as well as the descendants of his nine granddaughters. It would be vain 
to estimate the labor, time and perseverance devoted to this task and perhaps

A Documentary History of Ch him. thi Bo

By Mellen Chamberlain. Cloth, Octavo, Volume I, pp. 668 Vol. II, p 


2 I O Book Notices. [July. 

No more valuable historical record of the early settlement of Boston has 
been published than this work of the late Mr. Chamberlain, and the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society has laid historians under a heavy debt by its enter- 
prise and liberality in printing such a collection. 

Every important paper relating to " Chelsea" has been set out in full and 
the long controversy as to the earliest settlement and most ancient dwelling in 
the upper bay of Boston has been finally disposed of, viz.: Samuel Maverick's 
Palisade House at Winnisimmet, 1624-5. 

The work treats of the early planters at Winnisimmet, the Indian Deeds, 
Allotments of Land, Gov. Bellingham's Estate and Will, the Winnisimmet 
Ferry, Early Churches and Pastors, the French War, American Revolution, 
etc., and the town and court records now published appear to be exhaustive of 
the subject of ancient Chelsea. 

Perhaps a more general historical review of the town and less documetary 
record would have been easier reading, but the untimely death of the author 
undoubtedly hampered the final form of the work and at the most the historian 
need only expend a little more time in reading the transcripts. The publisher 
of these volumes is to be congratulated upon so scholarly a production and the 
difficulty of typing ancient documents full of quaint and curious words and 
alliterations has been well surmounted by the press-men. The work is 
standard American history and also contains genealogical data of the utmost 
value to the descendants of the early Chelsea settlers. 

Genealogy of the De Carpentier Family of Holland. By Edwin 
Jacquett Sellers. Cloth, Octavo, pp. 59. Indexed. Limited Edition. Phila- 
delphia, Pa. I909. 

The great expense of searching and transcribing the Dutch, French and 
English records deters many from attempting to trace their ancestry else- 
where than in the new continent of America. This brief work is an unusually- 
good example of what can be found in ancient archives, when given the 
interest and means to secure skilled archivists, and the pedigree of Pierre de 
Carpentier of Messen. Flanders, is admirably set forth. The classification of 
the data obtained and the elimination of unnecessary detail in the work 
evidences the trained mind of a born genealogist. The two illustrations of 
eminent members of the family are beautifully reproduced from ancient 
pictures and the style of the book is much to be commended. 

Donaldson Family Record. By James H. Slipper, M. A. Cloth, 
Large Quarto, pp. 52. New York. 1909. 

This work is a record of the descendants of James Donaldson born in the 
Parish of Rothes, Scotland, 27th December, 1769, who came to New York in 
1791, and is compiled more to preserve in permanent form family data, 
obituaries, war records and family tributes than exhaustive genealogical 
"data." The value to future family historians is unquestioned and the com- 
piler has produced a creditable publication both in matter and typography. 

The East Haven Register, in Three Parts. By Stephen Dodd. Cloth, 
Small 8vo, pp. 200. New Haven. 1824. 

This early book is a veritable treasure trove, dealing with the history of 
the town of East Haven, Connecticut, from its earliest settlement in 1644 to 
1800, and containing the names, marriages and births of the families which first 
settled or resided in the town to 1800, arranged by name, and an account of 
the deaths from 1647-1823, unfortunately arranged chronologically. 

The data given is unusually complete for the early date of compilation 
and had more of such work been done by the local pastors, the labor of the 
present day genealogists would have been much lightened.

The Holmans in America. By David Emory Holman, M.D., Attle- 
boro, Mass. Cloth, Quarto, pp. 295. Full Index. The Grafton Press, New 
York. 1909. 

This volume records the descendants of Solaman Holman who settled in 
West Newbury, Mass., in 1692-3, from whom William Howard Taft, President 
of the United States, is descended, but the connection with any earlier New or 
ngland ancestor has not been established. The author devotes forty- 
three pages to more or less detailed account of other Holman families in 
England, the New England States, and Virginia, as well as inserting interest- 
ions of portraits, inected with these unrelated 

lines, as well as his own family. 

The Holman coat of arms is al in the pages, althi 

kinship is shown with any "armiger." fin- desri the original 

ancestor who died as late as 7th May, 1753, aged 82, appears to be fully tl 
out and the genealogical arrangement is excellent. Both in printing and 
binding the book is worthy of its publishers. 

The Honeyman Family of Scotland and America, 1548-1908. By

In an attempt — unfortunately unsuccessful — to trace the ancestry of his 
greatgrandfather, John Honeyman, the mysterious "Spy of Washington,' the 
t collected a great mass of genealogical data concerning those of the 
name in Scotland and in this country, and determined to publish this valuable 
material rather than to allow it to lie hidden and become lost. Tin 
deals with Bishop Andrew Honeyman of the Orkneys; the Honeyman family 

of Newport, R. I., and with tin- eclebrati d John 1 1 1 of Armagh, Ireland, 
and his descendants, and is divided into four parts, vi/.: 1. Historical and 

ipbical; II. Genealogical; III. Gatherings from Scotch Records, and IV.

author shows genealogical aptitude, skill in rth difficult 

concisely and a vast amount of patience and toil in collecting his facts. The 
Scotch annals are exceptionally interesting and will be of great value to those 
tracing ancestry to that land. Tin- hook is finely printed and illustrated and 
welcome from all libraries and societies dealing with the

deeded land there — the original deed being now in possession of Mr. Harvey J. 
King of Troy, N. Y. In 1721 James King of Suffield deeded to his son Joseph 
certain Connecticut lands and sealed the instrument with a distinct waxen 
impression of his coat-armor from the "Silver Seal, King's Coat of Arms," as 
set out in the inventory of said Joseph King in 1758. The seal appears on 
various deeds and documents from time to time and is now preserved among 
descendants. The arms used are those granted by Wm. Camden, Clarenceux 
King of Arms in 161 1 to " King of London" and are described as "Sable, on a 
chevron or, between three crosses — crosslet of the last, three escallops of the 
first," and were used with slight differences by Oliver King (1430-1503), Bishop 
of Exeter, Devon, as well as by Alexander King of London in 1592, and by the 
Kings of Shelly, Co. Suffolk, as well as the King family of Sherborne, Dorset. 
The dates would make these arms of more ancient use than the "Lion Ram- 
pant" which distinguishes the King family of Devon and Towcester, North- 
ampton, to which family John King, Bishop of London, and the Kings of 
Warwick, York, Kent, Oxon and Bucks were allied. 

The compiler has given a detailed description of the English ancestry, 
including a view of a King Manor House at Fowelscombe, Devon, still in 

The work is excellently arranged after the standard plans, illustrated with 
various family portraits and objects of interest, and would appear to be 
exhaustive of the Suffield, Connecticut line. The descendants of the immigrant 
named King number 1,442 and the daughters made alliances with Fuller, 
Emerson, Devotion, Remington, Adams, Aunnger, Preston, Farrer, Holliday, 
Bayeux, Haight, Beveridge, Forney, Brown, Baker and Washington families, 
all of which are set out in Appendices. 

The typography, paper and binding leave nothing to be desired and Mr. 
King deserves great praise for his care, ability, patience and toil in compiling 
what is the first exhaustive genealogy of a New England family of this name. 

The book should be in the collection of every society dealing with early 
New England families and heraldic pretence. 

A Brief Cenealogical History of Dr. Robert King of Blanford, 
Berkshire County, Mass., and the Descendants of his son, Captain 
Dr. Robert King of Sandisfield, Berkshire County, Mass., late of 
Charlestown, Portage County, Ohio. By Silvester M. King, M.D. 
Paper, Octavo, pp. 59. Press of Anderson & Robb, Albia, Ohio. 1883. 

Dr. Robert King, the first ancestor of this special King family of Massa- 
chusetts, appeared in Blanford about 1768, and is said to have been born near 
Cork, Ireland. He married, about 1768, Bridget Knox and settled in Berkshire 
Co., where he had ten children. The descendants of his son, Dr. Robert King, 
alone are traced down to the number of 208, and are to be found prospering in 
many of the western cities and states. The compiler has done good work in 
preserving and perpetuating this family record and while the pamphlet is not 
arranged or indexed according to present standards, the references to special 
names are readily found and the annals of the Kings and allied family names 
clearly set forth. The spirit which actuated the collection and publication of 
of these annals is most creditable and Dr. King deserves praise for surmount- 
ing the obstacles of indifference, ignorance and opposition, as well as the 
difficulty of compiling a genealogy when living so far from the original settle- 
ment of the family. It is such works as these — accomplished out of family 
pride and interest — which will prove invaluable to the genealogists of future

The loss of this church, with all its records by fire in 1873, inspired the

this book is the result of her self-imposed task. The plan, scope and arrange-

The spirit which prompted the preservation in print of the Acts of tin-

This fine edition of the Society Book contains an Historical Note of the 
Society, its Constitution, Officers, Past and Present, Committees, Mayflower 
Passengers from whom descent has been proved, an Alphabetical List of 
Members, with their Pilgrim Ancestry, and a List of Members and their 
Addresses. As a reference book for those of Rhode Island ancestry anxious 
to trace descent to the Pilgrim Fathers it will prove of great use, and for style 
of arrangement, good taste, fine paper and printing, the little volume cannot 
well be surpassed. 

The Morris Family of Philadelphia, Descendants of Anthony 
Morris, 1654-1721. By Robert C. Moon, M. D. Supplement Vol. IV and V. 
Cloth, Large Octavo, pp. 483. Full Index. Philadelphia. 1908. 

These sumptuous volumes consist of additional records of this well known 
Philadelphia family, collected since the three original volumes of family 
history were published in 1898. They deal with research at Stepney, England, 
in Barbadoes, W. I., and at Weymouth and Melcombe Regis, Dorset, England, 
and give additional data concerning Andrew Dury, the Morris Mansion, the 
First City Troop of Philadelphia, the Lewis family, the Wister Family, the 
Kuhn family, the Shober family, the Shippen family, the Nixon family, the 
Pennsylvania Hospital and many mansions, homes, institutions, etc., identified 
with the representative descendants of this ancient line. These books are re- 
markable for 302 fine illustrations, in half tone of portraits, residences, maps, 
documents, old silver, furniture and other objects of art and interest dealing 
with the Morrises and their many allied kinsfolk. The type is unusually clear, 
large and admirably set on fine paper and the books are exceptionally well 
bound, opening readily and remaining flat for the reader's convenience. 
Taken in conjunction with the first three volumes of genealogy these supple- 
mental volumes make one of the most complete histories of a leading American 
family ever published and Dr. Moon in this monumental work establishes 
himself in the first ranks of family historians and antiquarians. Fortunate 
jndeed any library, public or private, that can add these books to its collection. 

'History of the City of New York in the Seventeenth Century. 
By Mrs. Schuyler Van Rensselaer. Two Volumes. Cloth, Octavo, pp. 1 173. 
New York, The Macmillan Company. 1909. Price, $5.00. 

In view of the approaching Hendrick Hudson Celebration the appearance 
of these historical volumes is singularly appropriate, confined as they are to 
the early Dutch and English settlements of Manhattan Island. Excellent 
general histories of the City and Province of New Amsterdam and New York 
are a-plenty, and as such must perforce omit, or give only a few lines to many 
of the minor historical and political events. The present historian, however, 
had the happy intuition of writing a detailed history of the city alone, after 
close and exhaustive examination of the great mass of documents dealing with 
the Annals of New Amsterdam and New York. In the past few years interest 
in preserving ancient records has been vastly stimulated by discoveries of 
many new and priceless manuscripts in the libraries of Europe and England 
and the publication of many records hitherto inaccessible to the general 
reader. The mass of these publications had not been exhaustively digested or 
incorporated into any history of this city and this work it was left for Mrs. 
Van Rensselaer to accomplish and bring before the public in her scholarly 
volumes. She shows a remarkable grasp of detail, a masterly analysis of 
political motive and action, and an impartiality of narrative somewhat rare to 
find among those women who have attempted historical writings. Easy 
writings as a rule makes hard reading, but the style of these volumes refutes 
the ancient saw and the text is neither redundant nor filled with imagery. 
Each chapter is followed by its pages of reference notes, as though the author 
was jealous lest her authorities should not be openly declared and referred to. 

The style and finish of the publication maintains the high standard of its 
publishers and these books are indispensible for any adequately equipped 
public library. Both author and publishers deserve the intellectual and 
financial support, which their joint labors merit.

Emeritus, aided by Charles Field Wilcox. Cloth, Quarto, pp. 189. Providence, 
R. I. 1908. 

The loss of the early records of this important Colonial Church, founded in 
1638, is irreparable and the present work only deals with church entries since 
1774. Thanks to the untiring efforts of Mr. Wilcox however, a card index was 
prepared of all known members, collected from every available source, 
Etistorii 1 a! and from public and private archives, and about four 

thousand out of the possible five thousand members from earliest times to date 
have been sei I G genealogical notes and references to many of the 

names are full of interest and the alphabetical arrangement of the names 
renders ready reference. The book is beautifully illustrated with plates of the 
church building and its pastors, and it will prove a desirable addition to Rhode 
Island historical works.

assumption is a weakness which mars an otherwise careful and authentic 

John Redington of Topsfield, Massachusetts, and some of His 
Descendants, with Notes on the Wales Family. By Cornelia M. 
Redington Carter. Edited by Josiah Granville Leach, LL.B. Cloth, Octavo, 
pp. 86. Full Index. Boston. 1000. 

The genealogy is a reprint — with additions — from the Neiu England 
Historical and Genealogical Register and exceedingly well done both as to 
material, arrangement, illustrations and typography. Nothing is set forth 
upon tradition and no claim to distinguished descent is advanced but the 
story is one of an honest family, well told. There appears to be a reasonable 
certainty that John and Abraham Redington were originally of Hemel Hemp- 
stead, Co. Herts, England, as Mary Gould, the wife of John Redington, was 
born in that town. The Redington name is an unusual one in the English 
Counties and is stated to be confined to Counties Herts, Essex and Berks. 
The genealogical plan of this book should serve as a model to all contemplat- 
ing a record of their family, and the work will be a welcomed addition to the 
collections of critical bibliophilers. 

The Van Doorn Family in Holland and America, 1088-1008. By 
A. Van Doren Honeyman. Cloth, Octavo, pp. 764. Indexed. Honeyman's 
Publishing House, Plainfield, N. J. 1909. 

The enormous labor in preparing a work of this magnitude can hardly be 
realized, but the grand total of 9,948 names tabulated emphasizes the energy, 
patience and devotion of the compiler to his task of recording the annals of 
this ancient and interesting Dutch family. The American members of the 
family are descended from three Holland ancestors, in no way yet known to be 
related, viz.: — Pieter Van Doorn of Gravezand, Holland, who settled in 
Gowanus, Long Island, New York; Diedlof Doorn, who appears in New York 
in 16S0, and Anthony Van Doorn, of Rio Berbice, British Guiana, who came to 
Rhode Island in 1756. The Rhode Island family alone has adhered to the 
correct spelling of the name and it is reasonable to assume that this branch was 
descended from those " noble " families of the name in Holland, whose probable 
cradle was the town of Doorn, near Utrecht. The writer appears to have 
exhausted every American source of information, the expense of investigating 
the Dutch Archives and church records deterring him from efforts in that 
direction. The arrangement of this genealogy is alphabetical and the fact that 
but two other genealogical works, as the author states in his preface, are so 
arranged, indicates that such a grouping of descendants is eccentric and not 
commended by skilled genealogists. The index therefore is not exhaustive 
and a searcher whose time is limited is much hampered. The book is well 
printed, bound and illustrated and is a valuable addition to American 

The Woodruffs of New Jersey. By Francis E. Woodruff, B. A. (Yale 
1864). Cloth, Octavo, pp. 131 with Index. The Grafton Press, New York. I909. 

This work is rather a foundation for a genealogy than an exhaustive record 
of the Woodruff family history, but it is none the less valuable in that it 
preserves important material in concise form for the future genealogists, 
revised and enlarged from "A Branch of the Woodruff Stock," which was 
published in parts in 1902. Clear proof is produced that the ancestors of John 
Woodruff, the immigrant, were of the town of Fordwich, Kent, England, and 
the line commences with a Thomas Woodrove who lived in 1508. The two 
sons of John Wooduff respectively founded the Elizabeth and the Westfield, 
N. J., branches of the family and the author has given excellent sketches of 
early Southampton, Long Island, its whaling interests, land divisions and 
political history in the 17th century. 

Good reproductions of early land maps, persons and places of family note 
are given and in typography and binding the book reflects credit upon the

226 West 58th Street, New York. 
This Society has for sale official forms of genealogical charts called 
" Register of Pedigrees." These registers are of two varieties, called "single" 
and "double" charts. They are each paper covered books of 11 x 16 inches in 
size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of names of ancestors in succes- 
sive generations. The single charts consist of 17 pages, and when filled in will 
give all of the ancestors in all ramifications for g generations, arranged so that the 
family name of each of the 16 great-great-grandparents occupies a page. Family 
names appear on the marginal index which is formed by the indentation of each 
leaf. The back of each leaf is arranged for special memoranda concerning the 
persons named on the page facing it. 

The double charts are practically two single charts combined. The object 
being to devote the first half of the chart to the registration of the complete pedi- 
gree of the male line, the second half for a like registration of the female line, and 
the double chart therefore provides for the registration of 10 generations in both 
male and female lines. 

The price of these charts to members of this Society is as follows: 
Printed on Bond paper, paper cover : 

Single Charts, 75 cts. Double Charts, $1.50 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, $1.00 Double Charts, $2.00 

Printed in Extra Heavy Linen Ledger paper, bound in stiff cloth covers: 
To Members of the Society: 
Single Charts, $1.25 Double Charts, $2.00 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, $1.50 Double Charts, $2.50 

Members of the Society, or others who purchase these Charts and fill them in as fully as pos- 
sible and present them to the Librarian of the Society for filing in the Society's Library, will re- 
ceive a new one in exchange therefor without additional cost. These charts may be purchased by 
application to the Librarian. 

It is the desire of the Trustees that the members will supply themselves with these registers, 
fill them out as far as possible and file them with the Society. When received these will be bound 
in volumes, fully indexed, and will thus form a record of inestimable value to the Society. 

Those who have in their possession full information as to their individual ancestry are espec- 
ally urged to obtain these Charts, fill them in and file them with the Society, as information of this 
nature is very frequently lost to posterity owing to negligence on the part of those possessing it to 
make record thereof, in special depositories provided for that purpose.

This history was written by Francis Jackson, brother of William Jackson, both formerly res- 
idents of Newton. The original publication was in 1854. The book contains 556 pages, bound in 
old fashioned embossed cloth covers 5 x 8 in size. Its frontispiece is an engraving of Col. Joseph 
Ward. It contains a map of Newton as it was in 1700 showing the original grants by the colony 
which make up the town territory. It not only covers the history of Newton but also contains 
copious references to the affairs of surrounding towns, and runs from 1639 to 1800. It contains an 
elaborate genealogy of all known residents of Newton to 1800. It traces out the derivation of the 
word Newton, runs over names and details concerning earlv settlers whom it traces from Boston to 
Cambridge and through Cambridge to Watertown and thence to "NewTowne" now Newton. The 
facts relating to the separation of Newton from Cambridge are reviewed. There are articles con- 
cerning the Indians, slavery in Newton, the history of its early mills and factories and a full ac- 
count of its ecclesiastical history. The battles of Lexington and Concord and the evacuation ol 
Boston are dealt with in a way to show the part that Newton suldieis took in those affairs. In ad- 
dition to the genealogical table, there is an appendix dealing with prominent individual citizens, 
for instance, the career of Col. Joseph Ward is set out at length witb copies of correspondence be- 
tween him and George Washington. 

This book is not a revised edition. Not a word has been added, omitted nor changed. It is 
a reproduction made by taking apart an original, photographing each page separately and from 
those photographs making plates for use in the printing press, so that each page of the book now 
offeree! is a photographic reproduction of the original. The old map, although not hand-colored as 
it was in the original, is still an exact reproduction in colors.

No more ancient family exists in the Scottish Highlands than 
that of the house of Atholl, and the early forbears of this power- 
ful clan by judicious intermarriages with the greater nobility of 
Scotland were thus able to secure protection and influence from 
the highest feudal authorities. The alliance of John, First Mar 
quess of Atholl, with Ameliana Sophia, daughter of James. 
seventh Earl of Derby, founded the fortune of the branch house 
of Murray, their second son, born in 16S5, being named Lord 
Charles Murray. < >n 16 August, 1686, the heir of the Murrays 
was created an Earl, Viscount and Baron of Scotland, and from 
this period the branch family rapidly came into prominence. 
John Murray, the subject of this sketch, fourth Earl of Dunmore, 
was the eldest son of William Murray, the third Earl, and 
Catherine Nairn, third daughter of his uncle Lord William 
Murray, who later became Lord Nairn by marrying the heiress 
of that family On his mother's side scent from 

the royal house of Stuart. He was born at Taymouth, Perth- 
shire, Scotland, in 1732, and died at Ramsgate, England, in May, 
1S09. Little is known of his boyhood days, except that he was 
educated at Eton, 1742-174.), and during the rising oi 1745 was 
a Page of Honor to Prince Charles Edward Stuart, the Pretender, 
at Holyrood Palace. His father, the third Earl, cast his fortune 
with those of the Jacobite Parly, and as chief of one of the great 
Scottish houses, took an active part in the rebellion, taking 
youn eir with him into the field. His father, however, 

was taken prisoner at the Battle of Culloden, tried for high 
m and imp t life, dying in prison in 175'). 'i

himself with the reigning Hanoverian royal family and as a 
reward received the appointment of Governor of the Province of 
New York in 1770. Lord Dunmore arrived in New York during 
October and at once busied himself with the duties of his office, 
showing great activity, but little intelligence in the administration 
of colonial affairs. In July, 1771, he was appointed Governor of 
the Colony of Virginia, but by delaying his departure from New 
York for several months, aroused the suspicion and antagonism 
of the leading Virginian families. Upon his arrival at Williams- 
burg, Virginia, in the spring of 1772, he at once incurred the 
hostility of the colonists by dissolving the Virginian Assembly 
and when it was reconvoked in March, 1773, Lord Dunmore 
again dissolved the body in May, 1773, because it had adopted on 
the 12th March, a resolution to appoint a committee of corre- 
spondence to unite with the other colonies for action against the 
aggressive policy of the mother country. In May, 1774, Lord 
Dunmore once more exercised his prerogative and dissolved the 
Assembly because it had resolved to keep the first day of June, 
the date of the closing of the Port of Boston, as a " day of fasting, 
humiliation and prayer." The Governor, either intentionally or 
through ignorance of the critical nature of the times and the 
patriotic temper of his province, continued to estrange the 
colonists and during the Autumn of 1774 aroused their anger by 
making an injudicious peace with the Ohio Indians. Fearing a 
popular uprising Lord Dunmore removed the powder from the 
Williamsburg magazine to on board the Magdalen, man-of-war 
then anchored in the James River, on the night of the 20th April, 


The people forthwith rose in arms under the leadership of 
Patrick Henry, and the Governor was compelled to make over- 
tures for peace by paying for the value of the powder he had so 
arbitrarily removed. A convention of the colonists was then 
appointed to meet in May, 1775, but Lord Dunmore forbade the 
gathering by proclamation. The Assembly was convened on the 
1st June, 1775, to consider the conciliatory propositions made by 
Lord North, the then English Prime Minister, but while these 
were under discussion, a sudden riot took place on the 5th June. 
Thoroughly alarmed at this second uprising, Lord Dunmore 
called together the council, but without effecting any relaxation 
of the tense situation between the royalist and colonial sympa- 
thizers. He, accordingly, sent Lady Dunmore on board the 
Fowey, man-of-war, for safety, and issued a proclamation against 
"a certain Patrick Henry" and "his deluded followers." He 
himself soon joined his wife on the Fowey, which was then lying 
off Yorktown, about twelve miles away. In the meantime, the 
Virginia Assembly continued to sit, and to forward to him the 
bills passed — which he in turn refused to sign without the at- 
tendance upon him aboard ship, of the burgesses. Thereupon 
the burgesses decided that their privileges had been attacked 
and held that by such action the Governor had abdictated. 

They then constituted themselves into a convention and 
vested all executive power in a Committee of Safety. When the 

1909.] The Earl oj Dunmore. 22"J 

news of the Battle of Lexington reached him, Lord Dunmore 
immediately sent his wife to New York and himself sought 
e in Port Johnson. Upon the arrival of the British forces 
in New York, a number of the Royalists joined Lord Dunmore 
and they proceeded I >n a petty war against the in- 

habitants on the James and York Rivers, burning their plan- 
tations, destroying thi tnd carrying off their goods and 
He attacked Hampton on October 25th, but was repulsed 
with considerable loss, and having determined upon di 
action, on November 7th proclaimed freedom for all negroes who 
might rally to his standard. 

< >n December 9th, 1775, his small army was decisively defeated 
•at Bridge, a small village about twenty miles from Norfolk 
and on January 1st, 1776, Lord Dunmore retaliated by burning 
Norfolk, the most flourishing city in Virginia. Soon after this 
exploit he was forced to flee on board his fleet, and after being 
driven from one position to another finally anchored at the 
mouth of the Potomac River. During June, 1777, he made his 
headquarters on Gwynn Island, in the Chesapeake River, where 
he attempted a few sallies without success, and was routed from 
this shelter on July 8th by the Yirginians, under the leadership 
.drew Lewis, after being wounded in the leg. Gen. Wash 
□ wrote concerning him in December, 1775: " I do not think 
that forcing his Lordship on shipboard is sufficient. Nothing 
less than depriving him of life and liberty will secure peace to 
Virginia, as motives of resentment actuate his conduct to a 
degree equal to the total destruction of that colony " 

During the greater part of the year 1776, Lord Dunmore re- 
mained along the coast of Yirginia, suffering great hardship and 
many minor defeats, until he finally burned his smaller vessels 
and sailed with the remainder of his fleet to the West Indies. 

Later he returned to England, as he had been elected in 

{anuary, 1776, to a vacant seat in the House of Lords, to which 
e was again returned at the general election of October, 1780, 
and May, 1784.

to the fact that he was one of the few Scottish Highland nobles 
that allied themselves with the house of Hanover, and the King 
was anxious to reward these adherents for their deflection from 
the party of the Pretender. 

Lord Dunmore married on February 21st, 1759, Lady Char- 
lotte Stewart, daughter of Alexander, sixth Earl of Gallaway, 
and Catherine, youngest daughter of John, fourth Earl of Dun- 
donald, by whom he had eight children, viz.:

royal prince with a subject and thus contrary to 
statute, caused great scandal and was repudiated by 
the King and the royal family. Question arising as 
to its validity, it having taken place in a foreign 
country, the Prince remarried Lord Dunmore's 
daughter on 5 Dec, 1793, at St. George's Church, 
Hanover Square, London. The marriage, however, 
resulted in no issue.

A John Cannon came in the Fortune in 162 1, but his name is 
not found in the division of cattle in 1627. There was a Cannon 
of Sandwich in 1650, perhaps identical with Robert of New 
London, 1678.* In the church records of Scituate and Barnstable, 
t9 April, 1 69 1, occur the baptisms of John, Philip, Timothy, 
Nathan and Elizabeth, children of Joanna Cannon, probably a 
widow, who had but recently removed there. f 

Memorandum that Edward Marshall of the parish of St. 
Peter's neere Paulswharfe, London, who died on or about the 
fifth day of December, 1639 . . . did utter and speake these 
words following, that is to say " Cosen (hee then speaking unto 
Anne Cossens, widdow), I pray see mee buried well, and take all 
my goods that I have and keepe them for the benefit of my sonne 
Thomas Marshall," who was then and is now beyond seas, " and 
if hee come not home again, then I give all my goods unto you." 
Witnesses: John Cosens, Sara wife of Michael Barnett, Anne 
wife of Isaac Finch. 

10 Dec, 1639, commission to Anne Cosens to administer for 
the use of Thomas Marshall, son of deceased, now dwelling in 
parts beyond the seas. (Commissary of London, Vol. 28, f. 92.) 

Four persons of the name Thomas Marshall appear in New 
England prior to the date of this will: Thomas, planter, Dor- 
chester, freeman 4 March, 1634-5 (name sometimes spelled Marsh- 
field) ; Thomas, Boston, admitted to the church there 3 June, 1634; 
Thomas, shoemaker, Boston, came in the James in 1635, aged 22; 
and Thomas, tailor, Lynn, proprietor, 1638; but there is a good 
deal of confusion in the accounts of these persons as given by 
Savage and Pope. 

I Thomas Malthus of Enfield, co. Middlesex . . . give my 
grey gelding to Thomas Cullenben; to my two sisters 40s. apiece; 
to the poor saints of God ^5; for the use of those poore children

wife all my lands in Edmonton and Enfield, for the term of her 
life, and afterwards to my daughter Elizabeth and her heirs.

according to the custom of the City of London, one other third 
amongst my children Samuel, Peter, John and Mary, equally, for 
that I have already sufficiently advanced my eldest son Richard 
sufficiently, and out of the other third part, reserved to myself, I 
give the following legacies: — Towards the maintenance of a

Visitations of 1569 and t6u,* but unfortunately omitted from 
that of 1663-4,1 which would probably have enabled us to place 
the testator with certainty.

In this most valuable will we are enabled to locate three of 
the name in New England, all evidently brothers, of whom the 
deceased husband of the testatrix, who seems to have been Alex- 
ander, was of Ipswich, Mass., in 1635, and had been an innkeeper 
at Chelmsford, Essex, in Old England, before his emigration.* 
That he was also a mariner is clearly indicated by the mention of 
his sea clothes and instruments — a fact that also accounts for the 
absence of his name from the shipping list in which those of his 
wife Sarah, aged 50, the testatrix, and daughter (or sister) 
Dorothy, aged 30, appear.f 

Philip, the next brother, who had under the will the sea 
clothes and instruments above mentioned, was of Charlestown, 
Mass., in 1637. He was there a cooper, and by wife Margery had 
five children who, at his death in 1665, were of ages varying 
from eleven to twenty-six years. 

Robert, who was in Holland at the time of the making of the 
will, was perhaps that Robert, formerly of Bristol, England, 
merchant, who was appointed attorney for Abraham Shurt of 
Pemaquid in 1647, and who married, about 1651, Anne, widow of

1909.] Lists of Germans from the Palatinate who came to England in ifoq- 2 A I 


(Continued from Vol. XL, p. 167, ol the RECORD.) 

The following lists are copied from the original documents 
preserved in the British Museum Library, London, England, and 
should be of the greatest genealogical interest to those families in 
the States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and else- 
where, which claim descent from the so-called Palatine settlers. 
These lists have never before been printed to the knowledge of 
the Editor, and it should be noted that the word " son " or " sons " 
and "dau." or "daus." followed by figures denote that the heads 
of the family had as many sons or daughters, as there are figures, 
and that these sons and daughters were of the respective ages 
denoted by the figures. The word "wife" indicates that the 
head of the family was married and that the wife was living. 
The abbreviations "Ref.," "Luth.," "Bap." and "Cath.," mean 
that the family belonged to the Reformed, Lutheran, Baptist or 
Catholic Churches.

by whom she had seven children. Her father, of "Anthony's 
Nose " fame, who arrived in 1 64 1, was Superintendent of the Colony 
of Rensselaerwyck, secretary, bookkeeper and "Vorleser." His

Whittemore in his De Duytscher Genealogy as the de Duytsctaer 
ancestor. The age of his wife was a great stumbling block to the 
Jafi Willemszcn theory until Mr. Van Laer at Albany, at my 
request, courteously examined the affidavits there of record, 
whereby it appeared that Cornelis, 17 I '< t , 172.', gave his a

The name appears in Maryland as early as 1668 and is likely 
of English origin. The following individuals would seem to be 
ancestors of the "Eastern shore" family, whose descendants are 
to be found in the vicinity of Baltimore, Centreville, etc.: 

John Hopper, will proved Dec. 20, 1668; had wife Dorothy. 

Isabel Hopper was a beneficiary in the will of Abraham Hol- 
man of Baltimore County in 1686. 

Robert Hopper was a witness to several wills proved in Anne 
Arundel County in 1686, 1694, 1696, 1697 and 1698. The will of 
apparently the same man was proved in 1700, viz.: 

Robert Hopper, of All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel County,

Holland Hoppers. 

John and Jane Hopper of New Jersey had children during 
Revolutionary epoch. Query: Who were their parents? At the 
Holland Society we ascertain that the Pond Church Records 
were consumed by fire'and that the only Ramapo vital records 
in that library are those of the Evangelical German Lutheran 
Church from 1750-1817. A careful examination of these has 
proved fruitless. Issue:

260 The Hoppe-Hoppen-Hopper Lineage. [Oct., 

Robert, the shipmaster, who made voyages on the Delaware 
River as early as 1683. He was a member of the Society of 
Friends and probably had no descendants in America. A deed 
made by the administrator of his only daughter recites that he 
owned land in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland; and 

Christopher, who resided in Flushing in 1698, was enrolled in 
the Colonial Militia in 17 15. His will, proved Dec. 9, 1760, is of 
record in the New York City Surrogate's office, and his children 

i. Mary, m. Henry Lowerre of Flushing. Her de- 
scendants will probably be found in Lowery lines. 

ii. Elizabeth, m. Griffen, probably of the same place. 

The descendants are said to be quite numerous in 
the present generation, 
iii. Edward, 
iv. John, m. and left issue. 

The estate of one Edward Hopper of Ulster County, N. Y., 
was administered in 1768 by Abimal Youngs. Query: Was this 
a descendant of Christopher? 

From another source we derive this information: The Flush- 
ing pioneers descend from a family in Wiltshire first known as 
Hooper, but which was indifferently written Hoppe and Hopper 
and finally Hopper. John Hooper, the first of the name to 
appear, was of the City of Sarum, in Wiltshire. He m. Agnes, 
dau. of John Porte. Their third son, Giles Hooper, had a son, 
Lawrence Hopper, who was buried May 6, 1603, in Stowell, 
Somersetshire. His son, John Hopper, b. circa 1540, in Sarum, 
Wiltshire, was a member of St. Thomas Church, and a burgess of 
the Borough. He d. Jan. 16, 1583. His son, Thomas Hopper, 
became an inhabitant and was admitted a freeman of the 
Borough, March 5, 1580. He m. Edith, dau. of Richard and 
Sisterly (Basse) Plummer. Their son, Hugh Hopper, was bap. 
in Aldenham, Hertfordshire, Feb. 8, 1595; m. Marye Jordan, May, 
1623. Their son, Thomas Hopper, bap. same place, Oct. 14, 1630, 
by Rowland Greenwood, minister, removed in 1654 to Darling- 
ton, Durham; m. May 6, 1654, Elizabeth, dau. of Humphrey 
Fletcher. Issue:

dau. of John Fletcher and sister of John Fletcher, Jr. 

ii. John, b. Feb. 9, 1656 (see below). 

iii. Humphrey, b. Aug. 17, 1658; m. May 5, 1697, in Gains- 
ford (County Durham) Church, Jane Hidshon, and 
had issue: 

i. James, who moved to London where he m. in 

St. Paul's, Canterbury, Sarah . 

ii. Edward, b. 1705; d. March 9, 1765, aged 60; 
buried in St. Oswald's Cemetery, Durham.

iqog.] The Hoppe-Hoppen-Hopper Lineage. 26 I 

1. John Hopper, b. Feb. 9, 1656, in Durham; with wife Rachel 
emigrated in 1074 to Flushing, L. I., where he was a planter in 
1675, removing shortly thereafter to Deptford Township, Glou- 
cester Co., N. J. He purchased land on Woodbury Creek. His 
descendants have been traced to various parts of the United 
States. Some are in New York City, some on Long Island, some 
in Philadelphia, and many in Western States. It will be noted 
that in this line of descent John's ancestors are definitely located. 
It may be that he had brothers Robert and Christopher as sug- 
gested above. No conclusive evidence, however, has been found.

Some Unlocated Hoppers. 

A number of the name appear in the military rolls of the 
Revolution in several interior counties of Pennsylvania. It is 
probable that they came of independent lines of English ancestry 
which have not been traced. Several names appear in New 
Jersey records which probably belonged to the Gloucester 
County family, but no connecting links have been found to 
connect them with the main stem. These are some of those 
referred to: 

I909-] The IIoppe-Hoppen-Hopper Lineage. 263 

Benjamin Hopper of Alloways Creek, Salem County, N. J., 
will proved 1725; left sons Joseph and John. 

Henry Hopper witnessed the will of Simon Clifton of Chester 
Township, Burlington County, N. J , in 1728. 

I' 1 '773. Thomas Saunders and Ann Hopper were married in 
Woodbury, N. J., Friends' Meeting. 

George Hopper owned a lot in Camden, N. J., sometime after 

The autograph of a John Hopper appears among the signatures 
appended to the Constitution of the New Jersey Society of the 
Sons of St. Tamminy, No. 1, dated May 1, 1782. The document 
is a manuscript and appears to be an original. (Collections of 
the Historical Society of Penn.) 

In 1797 Joseph Hopper and Amy Woolohorn were married in 
Gloucester County, N. J. 

In 1 80 1 Amy Hopper and Isaac Ivens of Waterford Township, 
Gloucester County, N. J., were married. 

In American Family Antiquities, by Albert Wells, is the 
statement that Noah Waterbury, m. Sarah McKinnie, widow, the 
dau. of Mr. Hopper of New York. The marriage occurred at 
St. Ann's Church, Brooklyn, about 1803. She d. April 9, 1828. 

In the N. Y. Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vols. 2 and 

3, are some notes contributed by Dr. O'Callaghan containing lists 
of marriage licenses found by him in the New York Surrogate's 
Office. These have also been published, in the supplementary 
list of such licenses, as a State Library bulletin in 1898. I 
cerning the Hoppers therein mentioned we have gleaned these 
data from the volumes of Marriage Bonds in the State Library: 

5 July, 1698. John Hopper-Margaret Tindell. The Stat< 
Archivist makes no report other than the fact that the marriagi 
license was issued. 

22 Oct., 1736. Edward Hopper- P^liz: Salya. Not a full bond 
but on lv a memorandum giving these names and the date. In 
Vol. M. B. 1,3. 

26 Sept,, 1759. Elenor Hopper-Samuel Hopson. Bondsmen 
Samuel Hopson of Kings County, Butcher and |ames Thompson 
of New York, mariner. Groom: Samuel Hopson as above 
Bride: Lienor Hopper of New York, widow. In Vol. M. B. 2, 433 

7 March, 1760. Mary Hopper-Thomas Canpi(?). In the bod] 
of the bond the name of the groom is written by tl 
Kemp; the signature in a rather illiterate hand is thomai Can pi 
Bondsman: Thomas Kemp or Canpi of Westchester County, 
shoemaker, and Isaac Gamier ot the City of New York, 

maker. Groom: Thomas Kemp or Canpi as above Bride: Marj 
Hopper of Westchester County, spinster. In Vol. M, B. .], 67. 

We are indebted for part of the above data to Harry Shelmin 
Hopper of Philadelphia, Pa., John Jacob Hopper of New Yorl 
City, and George T. Pish of Rochester, N. V . to Whom thanks 
are extended

iqoq.] Eailicst Baptismal RtcorJs of the Church of Harlingen 28 I 



NEW [ERSEY. 1727-1734. 

By William Jones Skillman, Ontario, California. 

Earth-hunger did not rage among the Dutch at the start in 
this country. A whole generation after the planting of the post 
on Manhattan in 1623, and the people were yet traders, mainly 
from Holland, with a sprinkling of adventurers of like mind 
from almost every country of Europe. They had come to buy 
and sell and get gain, and had scant thought of building for 
selves or children permanent homes on the soil. A 
East River at Breuckelin, Flatbush, Amersfoort, and contiguous 
points a few farmers had found what attracted them, but even 
after the English occupancy in 1604 there was little change. 
Elizabeth Town, to serve Ian ; is, was a company, 

gathered mainly as seems from New England, of < »gdens, Tuttles, 
Dickensons, Mar I hiteheads and Woodruffs, tl 

cestor of the writer's family, Thomas Skill-. . them but 

not of them. The latter was fifth in that list of sixty-five who on 
February 19, 1665, took oath of allegiance to Charles II, and thus 
made a sharp push to give Nova Cesarea or New Jersey its 
place in the land. But the settlement thus strenuously at- 
tempted did not flourish or grow. It took fifty years more 
before earth-hunger came really to the people, ami about 1700 
emigration was begun. Among Dutch farmers of Flatbush, 
Nieuw Utrecht, ami other points as Dutch Kills and Newtown a 
warm craving arose for the New West of the day (New Je; 
setting first toward the Navasinks, so called, rich corn lands of 
Monmouth County, and then by way of Staten Island going up 
the valley of the Raritan and its affluents, South River, the 
Millstone, North Branch and South Branch, and so further . 
soon reaching every nook and co region. 

Harlingen Church lay at the extreme west of this most promi- 
nent field of Dutch migration from New York. It was at the 
further end of a very great parish which was ministered to for 
many years, or from 1720 to 1747, by Domine Theodoras J 1 
Frehnghuysen, ancestor of all bearing that wellknown name in 
New Jersey and America. The center of the parish wa 

which so. .n Somerville with its churches j^rew up, and it 
covered Somer 

Hunterdon (long known as "the garden of the Dutch Church "), 
and in the beginning 

..ton with Neshanic, Hillsborough <>r 
Millstone, Thr< 1 Mile Run and "the 

Church at Lawr< I Irans 

wick, and very shortly Sotirland with 


282 Earliest Baptismal Records of the Church of Harlitigen [Oct., 

the north or west of it. The latter was not known as Harlingen 
till 1766, but was commonly called op dc Millstone, or the church 
over or beyond the Millstone, before that from the river valley in 
which it lay, and then Sourland. These early settlers from Long 
Island homes about New York took their church along with 
them. It would have been better, perhaps, had they not, or had 
they taken it with more religion or godliness and brotherly kind- 
ness to their new homes. For the spirit of contention, dull or 
fierce, marred these churches throughout at the first and for a 
long period. This was because of faction among them, the 
coetus standing for home-rule ecclesiastic, and the confercntie 
(Dutch name for Latin) opposing with great persistence and 
indescribable acridity, and by repute, without scruple. So the 
baptisms in Sourland or early Harlingen puzzle us. Domine 
Frelinghuysen took full charge there in 1729 but baptized no 
children at the start as appears, the ordinance being administered 
by the opposing or Arondeus faction so called. We have reason 
to believe that families of prominence at the beginning stood 
aloof from or indifferent to the church. Not a Skillman name, 
for instance, appears in the list here of earliest baptisms, though 
there was a number subject to that rite at that time in the land, 
owning households of the parish as Jan Skillman and his brother 
Isaac. So it was with Beekmans, affiliated with these by mar- 
riage, more numerous, still larger land holders, and with a host 
of children. Not one of these grandchildren of Christoffel, son 
of the famous Gerardus of Flatbush, is in the record. And so 
very likely it was with others of the pioneers. Church animosity 
wrought unreckoned evil at the time in this important field. 

And now follows verbatim the translation (by whom pre- 
pared we are not told) of Volume I of these first annals of Har- 
lingen Church: 

"The baptisms of the reformed dutch Church Here 
having been recorded in the low dutch language from 
the first origin of said Church on the 23d August 1727 to 
Feb. 1796 (inclusive), and the sd language having be- 
come nearly obsolete, & understood by very few, the 
present Consistory of sd Church has resolved that to 
preserve such records, they be translated & copied over 
in the book in the english language as well as the names 
admit of." 
These baptisms were administered at the start, and so far 
as any evidence goes to show, continued to be adminstered 
throughout, by Domine Henricus Coens, he being pastor from 
1725 to 1730 of the churches (Dutch Reformed) of Aquackanonck, 
Second River, Pompton, and Ponds (New Jersey), dying there 
1735. As Corzvin's Manual, Millstone, 1869, tells us, "He wrote 
to Holland a detailed account of the troubles between the 
churches of Second River and Aquackanonck." These today are 
the Reformed churches of Belleville and Passaic, New Jersey.

This carries us down to where a break occurs. The records 
are virtually a blank for ten years, or from 1734 to 1744, and 
what is given therein is far from satisfactory. This is because 
of repetitions in some instances, and localities seem confounded. 
But this is more apparent than real. The name " Raritan," it 
is true, has no place here, and is to be accounted for from the 
fact that the whole region at an early day was at times called 
"the country of the Raritons." The name "Millstone" and 
" Sourland " at first used were at length gradually dropped as 
applied specially to this church, and the Harlingen name came

eventually to take their place, derived from Domine Johannes ' 
tinus Van Harlingen, born in that region, educati d in Holland, 
and pastor of that church and of Neshanic from i ;6j to 1795. 
The record given above is from Book I of the Dutch. In Book 
II, the first baptism recorded, among scattered notes, is of date 
May 19, 1737. These later minutes are valuable, but for geneal- 
ogy they are defective, as the household names of the mothers 
in the baptisms are not given. This is to be regretted. Still 
these maternal names, with patience ami a measure of worthy 
zeal, could be even yet recovered, as ought to be done for the 
sake of the church, the thousands of families represented in its 
history, and the untold generations of those coming later. It is 
greatly to be desired and hoped that there will be an effe> 
movement toward this before it is forever too late. 


Extensive repairs and the enlargement of the Society's Library Building 
has rendered inaccessible most of the books, etc., received during the last 
quarter. Acknowledgment and reviews of these will appear in the January,

MlDDLEBROOK OF FAIRFIELD, Conn. By Louis F. Middlebrook, Hartford, 
Conn. Published Hartford, Conn., 1909. Limited edition of 252 numbered 
copies. Pp. .112. 

This work contains information in regard to the arms and foreign origin of 
the family, and an excellently arranged genealogical register of 10 generations 
of the descendants of Joseph Middlebrook, with a liniiti-d amount of informa- 
tion concerning the female lines. It also contains the war records of tin- 
descendants, many wills and inventories, and deeds and surveys of their 
property, and is supplied with an excellent index of 37 pages, The work 
cannot fail to be of interest and value to all descendants of Joseph M 
brook. It is Royal Octavo in size, printed on fine linen paper and the press 
work is much to be admired.

preserved them for all time. To the careful indexing, revising and printing of 
these records a member of the Publication Committee of the Society has 
devoted many years of able and painstaking labor. In addition to the names 
of those born, baptised, married and died are added the parents and many 
sponsors and witnesses, swelling the alphabetically arranged index to nearly 
sixteen thousand names. 

Hudson Tercentenary. An historical retrospect regarding object and 
quest of an all water route from Europe to India; the obstacles in the way; 
and also Hudson's voyage to America in 1609 and some of its results. By 
Gen. Frank Chamberlain, 9 South Hawk St., Albany, N. Y. Press of J. B. 
Lyon Company, Albany, N. Y., 1909. 8vo, pp. 101. 

An excellent resume of the reasons and object of Hudson's voyage to 
America and it appears before the public at a particularly opportune moment 
in view of the recent Hudson-Fulton Centennial. 

Greene (Grene) Family of Plymouth Colony. By Richard Henry 
Greene, A.M., LL.B., 235 Central Park West, New York. Privately Printed. 
1909. 8vo, pp. 145, including index. 

This is an excellent work embracing the genealogical record of William 
Greene, the original settler in Plymouth, and his descendants to the ninth 
generation inclusive. The work is excellently printed and is well indexed, 
and as the subject matter is the compilation of Capt. Greene its excellence 
requires no further guarantee. It is copiously illustrated with family portraits. 

Stephens-Stevens Genealogy. Lineage from Henry Stephens or 
Stevens of Stonington, Connecticut, 1668. By Plowdon Stevens. 1909. 8vo, 
pp. 358, including index. Frank Allaben Genealogical Company. New York. 

This is a very creditable work including the record of nine generations of 
the descendants of Henry Stephens of Stonington, Connecticut, with an ap- 
pendix and an excellent index; and is a valuable addition to the somewhat 
limited information of the Stephens-Stevens family. 

Beatty-Asfordby. The Ancestry of John Beatty and Susanna 
Asfordby, with some of their Descendants. By Mrs. Samuel Rudolph 
Turk. Frank Allaben Genealogical Company, publishers. Small 8vo, pp. 184, 
including index. 

This is an excellent little work dealing with this particular branch of the 
Beatty-Asfordby family and will be of great value to students of genealogy 
along these lines; and is a fair example of the excellent work emanating from 
the press of the Allaben Company. 

Colonial Families of America. By Frances M. Smith. Vol. I. 8vo, 
pp. 358, including index. Frank Allaben Genealogical Company. New York. 

An excellent work containing short sketches of the American families of 
Bacon, Bailey, Baldwin, Ball, Bancroft, Bradford, Brooks, Brown, Cary, Conway, 
Dickinson, Dubois, Edwards, Field, Fisher, Fox, Freeman, Goodridge, Griffith, 
Hawley, Horton, Loomis, Manning, Martin, Merritt, Miner, Montgomery, 
Osgood, Phillips, Read, Roosevelt, Savage, Sewall, Smith, Todd, Wallace, 
Wendell, Wilson, Winslow, Wright. With numerous armorial cuts. This 
work has more to do with the origin of these various families than with their 
genealogical records. 

Daniel Perrin,"The Huguenot," and his Descendants in America. 
1665-1910. Compiled by Howland D. Perrine, A.B., LL.B., of the New York

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society 
226 West 58th Street, New York. 
This Society has for sale official forms of genealogical charts called 
" Register of Pedigrees." These registers are of two varieties, called " single " 
and "double" charts. They are each paper covered books of 11 x 16 inches in 
size, properly ruled and printed for the insertion of names of ancestors in succes- 
sive generations. The single charts consist of 17 pages, and when filled in will 
give all of the ancestors in all ramifications for g generations, arranged so that the 
family name of each of the 16 great-great -grandparents occupies a page. Family 
names appear on the marginal index which is formed by the indentation of each 
leaf. The back of each leaf is arranged for special memoranda concerning the 
persons named on the page facing it. 

The double charts are practically two single charts combined. The object 
being to devote the first half of the chart to the registration of the complete pedi- 
gree of the male line, the second half for a like registration of the female line, and 
the double chart therefore provides for the registration of 10 generations in both 
male and female lines. 

The price of these charts to members of this Society is as follows: 
Printed on Bond paper, paper cover : 

Single Charts, 75 cts. Double Charts, $1.50 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, $1.00 Double Charts, $2.00 

Printed on Extra Heavy Linen Ledger paper, bound in stiff cloth covers: 
To Members of the Society: 
Single Charts, $1.25 Double Charts, $2.00 

To those who are not members of the Society: 

Single Charts, $1.50 Double Charts, $2.50 

Members of the Society, or others who purchase these Charts and fill them in as fully as pos- 
sible and present them to the Librarian of the Society for filing in the Society's Library, will re- 
ceive a new one in exchange therefor without additional cost. These charts may be purchased by 
application to the Librarian. 

It is the desire of the Trustees that the members will supply themselves with these registers, 
fill tbein out as far as possible and file them with the Society. When received these will be bound 
in volumes, fully indexed, and will thus form a record of inestimable value to the Society. 

Those who have in their possession full information as to their individual ancestry are espec- 
ially urged to obtain these Charts, fill them in and file them with the Society, as information of this 
nature is very frequently lost to posterity owing to negligence on the part of those possessing it to 
make record thereof, in special depositories provided for that purpose.
