{With Portrait). 

By Rev. Ebenezer P. Rogers, D.D. 

(Read before the New York Historical Society November 2, 1880.) 

It has been no less truly than beautifully said, that '-it is one of the 
finest instincts of our nature which prompts us to honor the dead." And. 
that "while the palace may be envied, and the hovel may be scorned, the 
grave is alike revered, whether adorned with sculptured marble, or decked 
with a simple flpwer." 

Many hands will unite in rearing the " sculptured marble " above the 
tomb of William Adams. It will be ours to lay with trembling but loving 
fingers a " simple flower " upon his honored grave. 

He belonged to a family distinguished for generations for learning, patri- 
otism, and religion. Two Presidents of this Republic, John and John 
Quincy Adams, with him were descended from Henry Adams, of Devon- 
shire, England, who, we are told was driven from his native land in [632 
by persecution, and who settled in the town of Braintree, Mas-. When the 
war for American independence broke out, John Adams, the grandfather 
of William, was an officer in the American army from the town of Canter- 
bury, Conn. His son John was educated at Yale College, where he 
graduated in 1795, a classmate of Jeremiah Day, long the honored presi- 
dent of that venerable university, and he was the father of the subject of 
the present memorial. John Adams became one of the most distinguished 
educators of his day, remarkable for his love of letters, his thorough scholar- 
ship, and his zeal and success in the high calling to which his lite was de- 
voted. For many years he was at the head of one of the most celebrated 
of the institutions of New England, Philipps Latin Academy, Andoyer, 
Mass.. where he won both for himself ami tor the institution a high classical 
reputation, which was acknowledged by Yale College, in the conferring 
upon him the title of LL.D. in 1854. He lived to the advanced a 
ninety-one years, spending the last thirty years in thi S I 

where he devoted twenty years to the establishment of Sunday-schools ior

the children of his adopted State, of which he was instrumental in estab- 
lishing nunc than five hundred before his death. 

His eldest son, Rev. John R. Adams, following the example of his 
grandfather, of revolutionary memory, gave his services to his country in 
irk days of die rebellion, and as a chaplain in the army, by his self- 
si. i nicing labors and exposures, shattered his constitution and shortened 

his life. 

The mother of William Adams was Elizabeth Ripley, a lineal descend- 
ant of Governor Bradford, of Mayflower memory, a fine type of a Puritan 
wife and mother, who left the deep impress of her strong mind and devout 
heart on the character of her distinguished son. 

He was bom in Colchester, Conn., January 25, 1807, but was soon car- 
ried by his parents to Andover, where his boyhood was spent. There he was 
prepared for Yale College by his distinguished father, and after graduating 
in 1830, one of the foremost among men who have achieved a high reputa- 
tion as scholars and divines in the literary and religious world, returned to 
Andover, and passed his theological course at that famous "School of the 

His professional life was commenced in Brighton, Mass., in the min- 
istry of the Congregational Church, but after three years, in consequence 
of the delicate health of his wife, he accepted a call to the Broome Street 
Presbyterian church in this city, afterward the Madison Square church, 
where the great portion of his life was spent. He soon rose to the highest 
rank in his sacred calling, adorning it with the high culture of the scholar, 
the pure and exalted character of the citizen, and the fervent piety of the 

Of a dignified and noble presence, a graceful and polished deportment, 
and affable and courteous manners, he was a marked man in all companies, 
commanding the respect and admiration of the best society, for his ripe 
and varied learning, his broad and enlightened philafithropy, his re- 
fined and pure character, and his exalted patriotism. In his chosen and 
sacred calling he adorned the pulpit with the charms of learning, the graces 
of rhetoric, and the triumphs of eloquence, no less than with the power of 
truth, the force of logic, the pathos of sincere emotion, and the fervor of 
pure devotion. No man was better fitted for the delicate and important 
duties of pastoral life. He was a model of all that was gentle, wise, affec- 
tionate, and faithful. In a city which has always been distinguished for 
the exalted character and attainments of its clergy, no name was more 
illustrious than his, no memory will be more sacredly cherished. 

Dr. Adams was a scholar of more than ordinary accuracy, variety, and 
elegance. There was nothing pedantic about his scholarship, but every- 
thing which he wrote or said bore the impress of the most generous cul- 
ture of a mind stored with large attainments. His learning touched nothing 
which it did not adorn. He was a fine illustration of that well-known 
sentiment of Cicero, in his high estimation of the charms of literature and 
the value of all good learning : 

" Hcec studia adolescentiam alunt, senectutem oblectant ; secundas 
res ornant, adversis perfugium ac solatium prebent ; delectant domi, non 
impediunt foris ; pernoctant nobiscum ; peregrinantur, rusticantur." 

Like his father he was a line classical scholar, but he was also at home 
in the best English literature, and his wonderful memory held firmly in its 
grasp the rich stores of its varied accumulations. He was not a volumi-

nous author, for the great work of his life was accomplished by oral teach- 
ing, but everything which came from his pen was finished to I 
perfection, and was almost perfect in its accura< 

was more frequently called upon on occasions of public hurch 

or slate, at festive celebrations, on historical anniv. -literary, 

or ecclesiastical assemblies of the highest character in 
Europe, and at epochs of extraordinary interest to the public, and' on all 
such occasions he displayed such symmetry, such n Ith of 

illustration, such fluency and affluence of d nd such loft) eloqu 

of style and manner, that his performances never failed to add lusl 
the greatest occasions, and to carry away his auditor.-, with appreciative 
and delighted surprise. * 

When that illustrious company of scholars, philosophers, and divines 
came to this city, in 1873, from all parts of Christendom at the call of the 
American Evangelical Alliance, Dr. Adams, by universal consent, was 
chosen to speak words of welcome from the American Church to the 
grand convocation, and the memorable address which he then delivered has 
well been called "the most complete and perfect performance oi 
Such an august assembly had never before been convoked on these -hoi.-., 
and no speaker's position ever gathered round itself loftier honors 
responsibilities. The choice of one who could worthily represent the scholar- 
ship, the culture, the social position, and the Christianity of the New W 
without any hesitation, fell on him, and, to use the words of one who lis- 
tened to him with discrimination, and reported him with fidelity, " none 
of the thousands who heard him on that memorable night will forget the 
majestic grace, the holy fervor, the splendid imagery, the exalted elo- 
quence of that cordial greeting of American Christianity to the piety and 
the scholarship, the learning and the genius of the church beyond the 
— (Rev. Dr. Prime, in the N. Y. Observer.) When the citizens of Massa- 
chusetts celebrated the centennial celebration of the battle of Lexington, 
where the fust blow of the American Revolution was struck, and the foun- 
dation-stone of this nation was laid, he was invited to participate in the 
public exercises of that important anniversary, and the address which he 
then delivered with so much enthusiasm and freshness, in spite of his three 
score and ten years, replete with interesting reminiscences and sparkling 
with patriotic fervor, gave new lustre to the occasion, and bore witness to 
his ripened wisdom and intense and intelligent love of country. 

Several years ago, when the condition of the dissenters from the Gr< 
Church in the Baltic provinces was such as seemed to invoke the sym- 
pathy of American Christians, and it was thought best to send a deputa- 
tion in their behalf to the Emperor of Russia to ask for them liberty of 
worship, Dr. Adams was re'quested to be one of a few gentlemen to whom 
such a delicate and important mission might be entrusted. He consented 
to be one of the distinguished citizens who. at their own charges, under- 
took to conduct the responsible negotiations which followed to a sua 
ful issue. 

Though, as I have said, Dr. Adams was not a voluminous writi 
his contributions to the literature of the day, though they were niainh in 
the line of the pulpit, covered a broad field of important thought, and were 
distinguished by a polished and graceful rhetoric, lli- " dice Gardens" 
was published in 1856, his " Thanksgiving Memories" in [867, and his 
"Conversations of Jesus Christ with Representative .Men'' in ii 

8 Rev. William Adams, D.B., in Memoriam. [Jan., 

while a large number of occasional addresses and discourses on important 
and various topics came from his facile and graceful pen. 

The second of the volumes mentioned, ".Thanksgiving Memories." illus- 
trates, in many ways, some prominent characteristics of Dr. Adams as a writer, 
such as his line taste, his varied learning, his symmetry, and sense of pro- 
prietv. his great love of nature, his refinement of thought and elegance of 
expression, cultivated not more by a large acquaintance with the best litera- 
ture than by a close and appreciative observation of all that is beautiful in 
nature or garnered in the sacred sanctuary of home. We are constantly de- 
:d with scenes and descriptions which remind us of the purity of Ad- 
dison, the charming simplicity of Goldsmith, the natural and graceful 
imagery of Irving, and the poetic beauty and loftiness of Bryant. Who 
but he could twine round the dogmatic pages of "The Assembly's Cate- 
chism " the fragrant boughs of a white June rose, or perfume them with 
the aroma of the sweet clover which grew in the fields that lay around his 
venerable father's dwelling ? 

There is nothing in the pages of the "Sketch Book " finer than his de- 
scriptions of an old-fashioned New England thanksgiving festival in the 
quiet country, where "the rich autumn sunlight bathes the sere and 
yellow stalks and husks of corn still standing in the field, reduced to 
the undress of the year, yet testifying of the golden wealth they have 
yielded to man ; barns bursting with plenty ; the cattle chewing the cud 
with mute thankfulness ; families reassembling in the old homestead ; mirth 
in the voices of the young, and placid delight warming the ashy hue of 
age ; what images of serene satisfaction are those which are presented by 
this day of happy memories." 

Dr. Adams became a member of the New York Historical Society 
June 18, 1844, and continued a member till his death, a period of more 
than thirty six years. During this long membership he manifested a deep 
interest in its welfare, and although he never served the society in any offi- 
cial capacity, he was always active and zealous in the promotion of its in- 
terests. At its meetings, on occasions of unusual interest and importance, 
he was often selected to officiate in the exercise of his functions as a 
clergyman, and on all such occasions his exercises were marked by that 
dignity, propriety, and solemnity which always characterized his whole de- 
meanor. The last occasion on which he thus officiated was at the meeting 
of the society in memory of Bryant, at the Academy of Music, December 
30, 187S, when he opened the exercises with prayer, Mr. George William 
Curtis delivering the oration, and Bishop Potter closing with the Apostolic 
Benediction. On that occasion a large and distinguished audience was 
present including President Hayes and die members of his cabinet. 

lew men like Dr. Adams have been perlnitted to spend nearly fifty 
years of active life in prominent public station in this city, and to adorn 
every sphere with its appropriate v'rtues. As a mafi, a scholar, and a 
Christian, he was a model of all that was high-toned, symmetrical, and con- 
sistent. He trod the walks of learning, of social life, of public duty, of 
wide beneficence, of private friendship with dignified, graceful, yet modest 
steps. He cultivated his powers and improved his opportunities to the 
very utmost for the glory of God, and for the good of his fellow-men, and 
in a ripe but not enfeebled age. in the maturity of his powers and the ful- 
ness of his fame, he has entered into rest, leaving us to give to his memory, 
"all, alas ! that is left for us to give, 'the poor tribute of our praises and 
our tears ! "

[In the spring of 1874 Dr. Adams resigned the pastorship of the 
Madison Square Presbyterian Church, and on the tith of May of that 
year was installed as President of the Union 1 TheoL f this 

city, which position he occupied to the day of his death. He died at I 
country residence on Orange Mountain. New Jersey, on the 31st of 
August, 1880. Impressive funeral services were held in the Madron 
Square Church on the 3 d of September, and his remains interred in M

Henry Adams, the immigrant ancestor of the subject of the fore^oino- 
sketch, came to New England in 1632. As shown by an ancient p'arch'- 
ment roll of the time of Charles I., discovered among the papers of the 
late Edward Hamlin Adams. Esq r , M.P. for the Coiii irmarthen, 

published in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 
VII., 39, this Henry Adams was a descendant of the fifteenth generation 
from Sir John Ap Adam of Wales, Knight, Lord Ap Adam, who was sum- 
moned to Parliament as a Baron of the Realm from 1296 to 1^07. He 
bore arms, " Argent on a cross gules, five mullets or ." These arms with 
the name, "JTCDI^g ~113 ^O^iU, 1310," are. at this day, still shown, 
beautifully executed in stained glass of great thickness, and in pe 
preservation, in the upper part of a I indow on the southeast 

of Tidenham Church, near Chepstow, Gloucestershire. 

1. Henry Adams settled at Mount Wollaston (subsequently named 

Braintree), Massachusetts. Here, on February 24, 1639-40, the Town 
of Boston granted him forty acres of land for the ten persons then com- 
posing his family. He died in the month of October, [6 ( .. The inscrip- 
tion placed upon the column erected to his memory by his great-, 
grandson, John Adams, second President of the United States.' states that 
he came from Devonshire, in England. This is. however, problematical. 
It has been conjectured with more likelihood that he came with others, his 
fellow-settlers, from Lraintree in Essex. He left a will, proved a

and Gen. Register, Vol. VII. , p. 35. I lis wife survived him. but her name

»i.J The Descendants of James Alexander. \-< 


By Miss Elizabeth Clarkson Jay, one of his descendants. 

James Alexander, b. 1691 in Scotland; d. 1756 in New York City. 
In 1715 came to America and was Surveyor-General of E. and W. J< 
Receiver-General of Quit Rents E. Jersey, Advocate-General, .Member of 
King's Council, Attorney-General, Advocate-Genera] ; m.. Jan. 5, 1 720-1, 
Mary, b. 1693, d. 1760, dau. of John Sprat and Maria <1 . and 

widow of Samuel Provoost (her son, John Provoost, b. 17 13, m. Eve Rut- 
gers, and their son Samuel was the first American bishop) ; they had 7 
children ; the entries of baptism are from the Sprat liible in the handwrit- 
ing of James Alexander. 

First Generation. 

1. Mary Alexander, b. Oct. 16, 1721 ; d. Sept. 24, 1767; christened 

Nov. 20th ; "Godfather, his Excellency G. Wm, Burnet, Esq., the 
Governor; Godmothers, the Governor's lady and Eliz., wife of Col. 
John Hamilton, Postmaster-General.'' Mrs. H. was first cousin to 
Mrs. Alexander; ml, Nov. 3, 1739, Peter Van Brugh Livingston, 
b. 1 710, d. 1793, second son of Philip, second lord of the manor 
(second wife, the widow Ricketts). 1 1 children. 

2. James Alexander, b. July 28, 1723 ; d. Sept. 28, 17^1 ; "Godfathers, 

his uncle John Sprat, Chas. Dunbar, and Elizabeth Alexander, my 
brother William's wife." "James died of the small pox, and was 
buryed in my vault in the English Church which was then made 
for my family." 

3. William Alexander, b. Dec. 27, 1725; d. Jan. 15, 17S3 ; "christened 

Jan. 4, 1725/6; Godfathers, my brother Win. Alexander and Peter 
Greene; Godmother, Mrs. Alary Kenned)'' (Mrs. Kennedy is the 
ancestor of Lord Casilis. I have a ring given at her death to my 
great grandmother, Mrs. Waller Rutherfurd, with the inscription : 
Ob. 176461:164). Wm. Alexander was, first, clerk to his mother, 
and afterward her partner. The firm supplied the king's troops. 
In 1754 he was made private Secretary o( ( ien. Shirley, and Aid, with 
the rank of Major, and in 1755 accompanied the General to Eng- 
land, and while there laid claim to the vacant earldom of Stirling, 
and ever after was styled by courtesy Lord Stirling. He also signed 
his name Stirling. 

In the Memorials of the Earl of Stirling and of the house of 
Alexander, by the Rev. Chas. Rogers, LI..D., Fellow of the Society 
of Antiquaries of Scotland, Vol. 11., p. 14. occurs this passage which 
gives some color to the claim : " Early in the 1 8th century, Wm. 
Alexander (probably of Edinburgh) described as ' near est heir 
to the title of Earl of Stirling] married Elizabeth, eldest daughter 

j - The Descendants of James Alexander. [Jan., 

of the Rev. Andrew Lumsden, Minister of Duddmgton, and latterly 
non-jurant Bishop of Edinburgh, by his wife Katherine only child of 
fohn Craig, son of the celebrated Sir Thomas Craig of Riccarton. 
By his wife William Alexander had a son and daughter, who both 
died without issue (Analecta Scotica, Vol. 2, pp. 32, 41)." I have 
no doubt that this \Ym., who is described as nearest heir male to the 
title, was the eldest and only brother of James Alexander, the father 
of Win., styled Lord Stirling for these reasons : Jas. Alexander's only 
brother. Win., was writer in Edinburgh and m., before 1723, Eliza- 
beth, dau. of Lumsden, and she was godmother to James' 

eldest son James, and also to his fourth child Elizabeth. Jas. Alex- 
ander writes to Win., the son of this Win. : " New York, Dec, 
1 745. Your father's memory will ever be dear to me while I have 
life, not only on the account of the relation of an only brother, but 
also of that of friend." Again, "Dec. 24, 1746. If I remember 
right, your father had 6,000 marks with his wife, and he had four 
times that sum from his father, and I suppose improved it." Again, 
in a letter of Jas. Alexander to Wm. Lumsden, dated Sept. 18, 1749, 
he writes : " Wm. Alexander and sister Kitty arrived in New York 
June 14, 1747, and took lodgings at Jamaica for the benefit of the 
air, a place (esteemed the best air in this province) about 12 miles 
from hence." Again, in a letter of Jas. Alexander to Mr. Wm. Wat- 
son, writer of the signet, dated New York, Sept. 18, 1747, he says : 
" my nephew, Wm. Alexander, in his life fully acquainted me with 
the difficulties he underwent through a fraud of his uncle Win. 
Lumsden." In a letter from Pacheco & Tavarey, London, 1747, to 
Jas. Alexander, " Wm. Alexander and sister Kitty died at Jamaica, 
Long Island, Sept. 4, 1747." William was bred a surgeon with a 
brother of Wm. Lumsden, Edinburgh, and was done with his appren- 
ticeship in 1734. Wm. Alexander (the brother of James) and wife 
Eliz. died before 1734. 

In 1 761 Lord Stirling returned to New York and was made a 
member of the Provincial Council. In Sept. 1779 Congress gave a 
vote of thanks to Maj. Gen. Lord Stirling. In 1781 he was ap- 
pointed to command New Jersey, and in 1782 ordered to his former 
command of the Northern Department and had his headquarters 
at Albany. He married Sarah, b. 1725, dau. of Philip Livingston, 
second lord of the manor. 2 children.

ander, my brother's wife, by my wife her prozie." She m. John 

Stevens, b. , d. 1792, of New Jersey (son of John Stevens, who

1 88 1.] The Kip Families of Kingston. Ulster County, etc. 20 


Two Generations. 

By Gerrit II. Van Wagenen, Rye, New York. 

I have gathered from the church records of Kingston and Rhinebeck, 
some material relating to two branches of the Kip family, mentioned by 
Bishop Kip and the late Mr. E. R. Purple, in their respective works on 
the Kip genealogy, but not followed out by them, probably from being un- 
able to refer to the records to which I have had ac< 

Hendrick Kip, oldest son of Isaac Hendricksen Kip, and Cata- 
lyntje Hendrick Snyers (Snyder), was baptized February 8,1654. I le settled 
at Kingston. N. Y., at an early date. He purchased from the Indians. 
July 28, 1686, a tract of land on the east side of the Hudson River, oppo- 
site Rondout Creek. This deed mentions no boundaries, and does not 
appear on record in Ulster County, but the original ilea] is in the pos- 
session of Win. Bergh Kip, Esq., of Rhinebeck. This tract, and a tract 
of land adjoining it, purchased from the Indians by Gerrit Artsen, Aiie 
Rosa and Jan Elton (Elting), June 8, 16S6, the deed for which is recorded 
at Kingston, are covered by a patent granted by Governor Dongan, June 
2, 1688, to Gerrit Artsen, Arie Rosa, Jan Elton, Jacob Kip, and Hendrick 
Kip. This patent is recorded at Albany in Rook 6, page 328, of Patents. 
The original patent is in the possession of the family of the late William 
Kelly of Rhinebeck, whose lands are all within the territory covered by 
the Indian deed to Artsen, Rosa, and Elting. Hendrick Kip, whose wife's 
name appears in the baptismal records of Kingston to have been Annetje 
Jans (Van Putten), had only three children of whom I find any record, viz. : 

I. Jan, bap. at Kingston, March 31, 1678 ; married, at Kingston, 
Sept. 28, 1703, Lysbet Van Kleeck. Their children were : 

1. Henricus, bap. Sept. 3, 1704. 

2. Baltus, bap. Mar. 17, 1706. 

3. Baltus, bap. May 23, 1707.

7. Annetje, Jan. 24, 1714. 

8. Baltus, Sept. 4, 1715. 

9. Jacob, Jan. 12, 17 18. 

II. Hendrick, bap. at Kingston, July 7, 168S ; married, at Kin 
Sept. 28, 1 715, Jacomynte Newkerk. Had one child, named J annetje. 
bap. at Kingston Sept. 23, 1716. A deed from Hendrick Kip and Jaco- 
mynte his wife, dated April 16, 1719, assigns to Matthys Sleight. Jr., his 
brother-in-law, "The one just half of two-thirds of the lands of Hendrick 
Kip, late of Dutchess County, father of the said Hendrick, which land 
was conveyed to said Hendrick and Catholynte his sister, by their eldest 
brother, John Kip, eldest son of Hendrick Kip, deceased.'' 

III. Catholyntie, whose birth I find no record of at Kingston, mar- 
ried Matthys Sleight, Jr. Their children were : 

1. Matthew, bap. April 29, 1711. 

2. Anna, Oct. 12, 17 12.

Jones. — In the Record, Vol. II., p. 67, I made the statement that Mrs. Charles T. 
Cromwell, who was the daughter of Benjamin and Harriet (Jones) Brooks, of Bridgeport, 
and who was, through her mother, descended from Deputy Gov. William Jones of New 
Haven, was a lineal descendant of Col. John Jones, the regicide. This assertion was 
made upon the authority of the Rev. Isaac Jones, and of a common belief in the family, 
that the above-named Deputy Governor William Jones, of New Haven, was a son of the 
Regicide. The statement being challenged in a subsequent number of the Record | Y 1. 
III., p. ion, I made such reply (Vol. III., p. 147) as I was able to do from data then 
at hand. The result of further investigations has convinced me that the Rev. Isaac 
Jones was wholly in error as to the parentage of his ancestor. 

• " In President Stiles' " History of the Regicides," Whalley Goffand Dixwell, page 155, 
is printed a deposition of Governor William Jones, made October 3, 1705, in which his 
age was stated to be eighty-one years. He died at New Haven, on 17th October, in the 
following year ; and the inscription on his monument states his age to have been eighty- 
two. This would fix the year 1624 as that of his birth. In the town record-, of New 
Haven is recorded the ante-nuptial contract between Hannah Eaton and her then in- 
tended husband, William Jones, dated July 4, 1659, in which she is described as of the 
Parish of St. Andrew, Holborne, London, Spinster, and he as of the Parish of Martens 
in the Field, in the County of Middlesex, gent. Having these authentic data, I sent to 
a friend in London, who, on inspecting the Parish Register at the Church of St. Martins 
in the Field, discovered the following entry under the head of baptisms : 
" William Jones, son of David and Jane, bapt. 20 March, 1624." 
I think this sets at rest the question as to the parentage of Governor Jones, 
were the ancestors of this David Jones, it may be interesting to ascertain. Possibly he 
was related to the regicide. J • J- L -

De Meyer.— Henry De Meyer, bap. Nov., 1692 (see. N. V. Gen. AND 1 
Record, vol. ix., p. 16), had one daughter Agnes, said by her descendants to have 
his only child ; to whom by deed executed at about the time of her marriage, in ci 
eration of natural love and affection, he gave one-third of all his land. The deed is re- 
corded in the office of the Secretary of State at Albany. His wife's name was Marian.

August, 1782, proved and recorded in New York Surrogate's office January 15, 1798, he 
fives to his wife Sarah ^200 and a life estate in his house at Whitehall. He mentions 
in his will all his above-named children except Agnes and Henry (who were probably de- 
ceased), and makes provision for his daughter-in-law Bersheba, widow of his son Charles, 
a child whose name does not appear on the list in the family bible. Sarah, widow of 
Edward Nicoll, was one of the heirs-at-law of Peter Creighton, formerly of N. Y., mari- 
ner, deceased. J. o. B. 

Van Tienhoven (Van Thinehoven). — Lucas Van Thinehoven, son of Cornelius 
Van Tienhoven and Rachel (Vigne) his wife, was a surgeon of repute in the city of New 
York. He left a will dated April 15, 1706. Proved April 30, 1714, and recorded in 
N. Y. Surrogate's office in Liber 8 of Wills, page 337. He names in his will his children 
Nicholas, Susannah, Cornelia, Sara, Elizabeth, Cornelius, and " the two children of my 
daughter Rachel dec' 1 by her husband John Dumartaer." Appoints his wife Katharine, 
his brother-in-law Adrian Man and his kinsman William Huddleston, executors. 

Nicholas Thinehoven made his will in 1695, leaving all his property to his wife Mary, 
he being about to start for Barbadoes. Mary, his wife, made her will at the same time 
in his favor. Both wills proved 15th June, 1715, and recorded in N. Y. Surrogate's 
office, in Liber 8 of Wills, pp. 348, 349. Letters on both wills granted to Cornelia De 

Cornelius Tienhoven, by will dated March 30, 1724, proved July 27, 1737, and re- 
corded in N. Y. Surrogate's office in Liber 13 of Wills, page 88, gives to his son Lucas, 
or such other one as on his decease may be the eldest, £5 in full of his claim as heir-at- 
law. To his wife Gertry Tienhoven the remaining part of his estate for life or widow- 
hood, but if she marry, then he gives her one-third of his personal estate, and one-third 
of the income of his real estate which was to revert with the rest to his children Lucas, 
Sarah, Barent, " and those which by God' grace, I may in future gett by my said wife 
Gertry," etc. Appoints his wife Gertry, his cousin Samuel Pell, and friend Simon Cre- 
gier, executors.

The Jarvis Family ; or the Descendants of the First Settlers of the Name in Massachu- 
setts and Long Island, and those who have more n tied in other pari

Jarvis, Gi orgi M. Jar vis, William Jarvis Wj imhit, and As isted by Au 
Harding, Hartford, 1879, Svo, pp. 350+19. With Illu 11. 

This is an important and very satisfactory contribution to American Family History. 
The volume opens with an introduction which treats of the origin, derivation, and ortho- 
graphical varieties of this surname. This is followed by the gi 1 portion <>l the 
work which opens with Stephen Jarvis, whose name is lust found upon th( 
Huntington, Long [sland, as early as 1661. Thisportion of the work I 11 pre- 
pared, and is illustrated and made entertaining by biographical sketches of distinguished 
persons bearing the name of Jarvis, and also of many emanating from tin- maternal line. 
Most of the well executed portraits, on steel, which adorn the work are from the graver 
of the eminent artist, J. C. Butre, of this city. A supplement of nineteen pni;c-, which 
appears only in a part of the edition, closes the volume before us. We regret that limited 
time and space both prevent a more extended notice of this excellent work — one which 
is a monument to the family — and deserves ample patronage^ r. 

Genealogy of the Family of Solomon Drowne, MR. OF Rhodi [sland ; With

Genealogy or THE Family ok Arnold in Europe and America, with brief Notices. 
By John Ward Dean, Henry T. Drowne, and Edwin Hubbard. Boston. 
1879. Svo, pp. 16, with a portrait. 

The first named of the above pamphlets is a reprint from the Genealogy of the Russell 
Family, noticed in The RECORD, for April, ISSo. The preparation of this history of 
the Drowne branch of that family, commencing with Solomon, b. 1753, was from the pen 
of the worthy 1st Vice President of our Society. It has been carefully prepared and will 
serve as an excellent example for others to follow, and we commend it to their attention. 

The last-named pamphlet is a reprint from the October, 1S79, number, of the 
England Historical and Genealogical Register It is in part documentary in character, 
and contains a transcript of a manuscript record of the Arnold Family, commencing in 
1553, and extending to 1776. Next follows a genealogy of the Fnglish Arnold Family, 
prepared by Mr. H. G. Somerby, for B. G. Arnold, Esq., in 1S70. The pamphlet closes 
with an account of the descendants of Gov. Benedict Arnold, of Rhode Island, 1662, 
through his great grandson Gen. Benedict Arnold. We are indebted to Henry T. Drowne, 
Esq., for a copy of each of these pamphlets. p. 

Act and Bull, is the title of a pamphlet, which might mislead the unwary. A paper 
was read before the Antiquarian Society of Philadelphia, discussing the method of correct- 
ly computing the true anniversaries of old occurrences ; to which is annexed a copy of the 
Bull or Decree of Pope Gregory XIII., dated 24th February. 15S2. which dil 
ten days to be dropped from October 5 to October 15, 15S2, and which changed the 
Fast and Feast days and the Saints' days, to correct the calendar. It may be curious 
and interesting reading to many of the present day. But John Bull had something to 
do with this. ' There is also annexed a copy of the English Act of Parliament in 1751. 
24th George II., "for regulating the commencement of the year" (from 25th March, 
back to 1st January), " and for correcting the Calendar." There have been some amend- 
ments of this in England, and our Revised Statutes have fixed the law and rule lor the 
State of New York. We are indebted to Mr. Lewis A. Scott t the " Ac: 

and Bull " thus described, and deem it of value for reference and preservation. m. 

A Crosby Family; the descendants of Josiah Cfosby and Sarah Fitch— is an interest- 
ing sketch of an active branch of a large family, by NATHAN CROSBY, ol Lowell, and 
published at Lowell, Mass. It embraces more of biography than of genealogy. 'I he por- 
traits are curiously different, and yet all familiar. The work i> a fair sample for a >ketch 
of the known branch of any family. M -

Genealogies, Necrology, and Reminiscences of the Irish Settlement on 

the Forks ok the Delaware. By Rev. John C. Clyde, A.M. Published by 

the author, 1S79. 
This is a valuable addition to the early history of our country. The numbers who 
came from this settlement, now Northampton Co., Penn., into the State of New York 
exceed our expectation. M . 

Notes and Que.mes, a Medium of Intercommunication for Literary Men, General 

Readers, etc. Published every Saturday in London. Office, 20 Wellington Street, 

Strand, W. C. 
The number of September 4, 18S0, now before us, is No. 36 of 6th series ; each se- 
ries embracing ten volumes, and covering five years ; so that over twenty-five years have 
elapsed since the commencement of the journal. Its character has improved, both by the 
skill and experience of its editorial corps, in rejecting frivolous or ill-considered articles, 
and abbreviating others, and by the improvement of its contributors in the aim, scope, 
learning, and character of their condensed, accurate, and often pithy communications. 
The work has improved also in its wider view, and in the notice it often takes of our 
American off-shoot. It has become quite an aid to the genealogist, as well as the his- 
torian. The General Index for each series increases the usefulness and value of the 
whole for purposes of reference. They become very convenient for the elucidation of 
many troublesome questions in literature and history. The advertisement of a General 
Index for the fifth series expresses correctly the idea: a "store of varied, useful, and 
amusing information, sorted and labelled, ready for use ; " of which (as Brougham said), 
the " value and utility " " were increased ten fold by its capital indexes." M. 

Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica. New Series. Edited by Joseph Jack- 
son Howard, London. 
This work, in September, 18S0, had arrived at its 32d No. for Volume III. It con- 
tinued the publication of curious and Interesting genealogies, and of church records, 
wills, and deeds, with, occasionally, excellent plates. Many of the contributions explain, 
or relate to the ancestors of Americans. M. 

The Centennial Celebrations of^the State of New York, prepared pursuant 
to a joint resolution of the legislature, by Allen C. Beach, Secretary of State, will be 
deemed valuable by many for the extensive historical gatherings. In its various addresses 
and details it presents to us a large share of biographical and genealogical records, with- 
out which its mere history would sink rapidly out of sight. The Roster of the Battle of 
Oriskany, p. 144, attempts to preserve the names of men who took part in that important 
action, and of many of their descendants. m. 

The Genealogist, edited by George W. Marshall, LL.D., also published in 
London, had arrived in July, 1880, to No. 35 of Volume IV. 

This work contains a large number of English pedigrees. It is now publishing also 
one of the Herald's visitations of Lincolnshire, which visitations throw light on American 
ancestries. Its notices of books are valuable. M. 

The Historical Collections of the Essex Institute, published at Salem, 
Mass., reach, during the past year, the seventeenth volume. They embrace a great va- 
riety of original matter deserving of publication. The gleanings from English records 
about New England families, published during the year, open a new and extended field 
for publication here, and one of much interest. M. 

The Keyes Family Genealogy is an interesting though imperfect work. We de- 
sign to recur to it again, and to notice other works received, which deserve fuller explana- 
tion. M. 

The New England Historic Genealogical Register continues to be published 
by the Society in Boston, and maintains its highly useful and interesting character. The 
year 1880 completes its thirty-fourth volume. M. 

The Magazine of American History, edited by John Anston Stevens, and 
published by A. S. Barnes & Co., of New York, is known by nearly all our subscribers, 
and is apparently pursuing a very successful career. M.

Vol. XII. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1881. 


An Address on the Twelfth Anniversary of the New York Gene- 
• alogical and biographical society, held february 24, 1s81. 

By Thomas J. Rush, Esq. 

The problems connected with the early development of the strength 
and independence of the people of this country we are all familiar with: 
and in our own day, eloquence and philosophy have united in making 
their recital of more than ordinary attractiveness. Your own Society has 
had no small or insignificant share in unfolding, by the careful research and 
compilation exhibited in its published " Record," the minute and biographic 
tacts relating to earlier times and other men. Through the labor bestowed 
upon your publications, there lias been preserved in authentic form the 
details of genealogy and biography which not only aid us in understanding 
many questions concerning the early history of our people, and in tracing the 
growth of the peculiar phases of its first society, but of extreme importance 
to the historian who shall seek to elaborate the annals of our public life. 
Amid the pomp and display attending such anniversaries as have lately 
occurred, we are apt to lose sight of, or neglect, serious phases of social 
life, until some startling turn of events withdraws our attention to the more 
commonplace, yet superior, claims of the day and generation. 

Of all the questions demanding the examination of the thoughtful citi- 
zen, none presents higher claim to his attention than that pertaining to the 
characteristics of race, as affecting the increasing and diverse population 
of our favored land. Actual participation in a common danger, and a 
era] similarity of taste and influence, of moral and social, if not ofrelig 
life, gave comparative solidity to the mass of the people, in the days "four 
early trials; and the vitality of the issue at stake, in the struggle ot later 
times, overcame for the moment all diversity of interests among the cl 
into which our people were divided. Birth and race were lost sight of in 
the paramount question of the life of the nation. But now, som<

no claim to the title of " Alarmists," see, in the condition of our citizen- 
ship, as affected by the adoption thereinto of a distinct race, and by the 
already large addition of the Mongolian element, a danger at least worthy 
of careful and dispassionate thought. 

In a representative form of government, all questions of public economy, 
at home and abroad, are ultimately referred to and determined by public 
opinion — the general expression of the determination of thoughtful men. 

In the announcement of the voice of the people all are supposed to 
participate. The theory and plan of government are elaborated to accom- 
plish, as near as practicable, that purpose. With this principle underlying 
our social structure, examination of the character of the elements compos- 
ing our people becomes of transcendant importance, not only as pertains 
to the present, but as well to the future. It is self-evident that the fabric 
of our nationality can only resist such forces as must test its stability in 
proportion to the unity, excellence, and adhesiveness of the different ele- 
ments which enter into and form its detailed parts. True statesmanship 
requires the study of man, as represented in our people, with attention to 
all the peculiar and distinct characteristics which belong to the different 
divisions of the human family. With profound sagacity the late Dr. Os- 
good, in his address before this Society in 1878, declared that "modern 
thinking begins with the individual and asks for the influences that form 
him." It is only by a knowledge of such influences that we can rationally 
judge as to his future conduct. In larger measure than we are apt to ac- 
knowledge, men are indebted to their ancestors for the good and evil which 
pertain to them. Philosophic students of history and ethnology tell us, 
with a truthfulness which investigation demonstrates, that not only do the 
great divisions of the human family have varied peculiarities in modes of 
life and thought, but that the diversity continues even to the remotest sub- 
divisions of mankind. Mere change of locality works little or no influence 
upon the mental and moral structure of a man or race of men. The lapse 
of centuries, under a different climate and with changed natural elements 
in the environments of a race, will accomplish but slight modifications in 
the distinctive features of mind and heart. 

The Dutch families who settled in Southern Africa three hundred years 
ago, are now as fair and as pure in Saxon blood and disposition as the na- 
tive Hollander ("Races of Men," p. 94). 

The mere fact that different races contemporaneously inhabit the same 
country does not change or obliterate their peculiarities. It is only by 
the absorption of one race into the other that the virtues and vices of each 
are commingled in the formation of a distinct species, usually of weaker 
physical organization than either of the formative elements. " Races of 
men have their histories as well as nations — histories lost in the abyss of 
time ; they have an individualism and form a family, which may be de- 
stroyed but not sensibly modified by climate " (" Races of Men," p. 572). 

The fusion of the Norman into the population of England and the com- 
plete distinctness of the Celtic from the Saxon element of Ireland, exem- 
plify these facts when applied to subdivisions of the same race. It might be 
of interest to examine the extent to which governmental institutions have 
affected each case, but that the two families united in the one case and 
have remained distinct in the other can hardly be doubted. 

In order that there may be any amalgamation of the different subdivis- 
ions of the race, it is essential that an approximate harmony of the leading 

1 88 1.] Race in Genealogy and the Chinese Emigration. cr 

characteristics of mind and temperament shall exist. In early days the 
Jewish shepherds were an abomination to the Egyptians, and it was imp 
ticable for them to live together in the same country. In modern I 
and in civilized society, Roman and Protestant Christianity has not found 
its devotees capable of harmonious intercourse within the limits of one prov- 
ince. The underlying principle of charity, upon which the religion was 
founded, has not been sufficiently developed to prevent the bitterest feuds 
and the most implacable hatreds, between members of the same common 
stock, inhabitants of the same territory. 

The adoption of foreigners into the body of citizens has always and de- 
servedly enlisted the greatest care by such departments of government as 
have had it in charge. The ancient Republics of Greece and Rome with 
jealousy guarded the rights of citizenship against adulteration of foreign 
mixtures, and the Swiss in modern times have not been less caution 
the same subject. It was not until the time of Antonius Caracalla, that to 
all the free inhabitants of the empire were communicated the name 
privileges of Roman citizens (" Gibbon's Rome," Chap. VI.). The unique 
position of these Republics made such safeguards of great importance. 

The extensive quantity of unimproved land to be occupied — a conti- 
nent almost vacant — and the needed strength and wealth to be derived 
from the incoming of the European, led the early statesmen of the Ameri- 
can Republic to frame a simple system of naturalization, which, in their 
judgment, tended to procure a knowledge of the circumstances of ourgov- 
ernment, an admission of the truth of the principles upon which it was 
based, and the acquisition of a taste the representative form, before final 
adoption into the people. A residence of five years was deemed suffi- 
cient to modify opinions filled with the prejudices of education under mon- 
archical and aristocratic governments, and to cultivate an appreciation of 
the beneficences of Republican institutions. As to the ultimate efficacy of 
this probationary period in accomplishing the desired results there may be 
difference of opinion. But at all events we wanted men and money, and 
the doctrine of exclusiveness would have come with questionable propriety 
from those who denied the right of the Indian to exclude them. 

While the current of accession was confined to the Eastern Coast, and 
limited to Europeans, or the Caucasian Race, the diversity of habit, taste, 
capacity, intelligence, and morality, was lost sight of, in the pressure of com- 
mon and constant industry, interest, and trial, and scattered as the incomers 
were over a vast area of frontier land. But even while so confined, many 
of the populous cities along the sea-coast have felt the injurious results of 
imported vice and bad habits which no period of residence among us has 
been able to obliterate. There never came, however, to be seriously evi- 
dent, the distinct and emphatic antipathy and contest of races, which even 
religion cannot entirely remove and which the intolerance of its sects has 
often encouraged. 

As the Western Coast of our country became populous and rich, there 
was demanded a method of communication more rapid anil constant than 
that afforded by distant water transportation ; and the construction of trans- 
continental railroads became a necessity. Cheapest labor was denial 
and a new element of population found its way into the seaports of the 
Pacific. So long as the supply was only sufficient to till this special and 
unusual demand for laborers, no collision occurred between the Caucasian 
and Mongolian Races ; but when the enterprise, to accomplish which the 

-6 Race in Genealogy and the Chinese Emigration. [April, 

Chinese had come, was finished, and they began to displace white labor in 
various manufacturing and industrial pursuits, the question of the ultimate 
effect of their presence and constant influx from an inexhaustible source, 
became serious enough to attract general attention. Reliable data fix the 
number of the Chinese on the Pacific coast at about 90,000. They have 
supplanted the white citizens in many occupations involving mere manual 
dexterity, not because of superior skill, but from the /act that they can af- 
ford to work cheaper. Capital is no respecter of persons, even though the 
dignity and life of the laborer be at stake, and Chinese industry being of 
less cost receives patronage. The Chinese in our midst work for less wages 
than the whites, for the reason that they have no families dependent upon 
them for support ; that they live upon the cheapest food in small quantities, 
and by their disregard of all laws of civilized decency herd together in a 
minimum of space at the least practicable cost. The class of Mongolians 
whose presence has been regarded as a blight on the prospects of the Pa- 
cific Coast, is the lowest of their society, and often imported into the coun- 
try under the complete control of companies which regulate to detail, their 

The people of the State of California, within whose limits about two- 
thirds of this race are, have attempted in various ways to limit or restrain 
this addition to their population, often perhaps by methods based more 
upon passion than sober thought, and Congress has been appealed to by 
them, session after session, for some remedy of the -difficulty. The final re- 
sult of constant agitation of the subject has been the security of a treaty by 
which (if ratified) the matter of regulating immigration of Chinese laborers 
is left to our government. The following is the article of the proposed 
treaty referring to the subject : 

Article i. — Whenever, in the opinion of the government of the United States, the 
coming of Chinese laborers to the United States or their residence therein affect or 
threaten to affect the interests of that country, or to endanger the good order of the said 
country, or of any locality within the territory thereof, the government of China agrees 
that the government of the United States may regulate, limit, or suspend such coming or 
residence, but may not absolutely prohibit it. The limitation or suspension shall be rea- 
sonable and shall apply only to Chinese who may go to the United States as laborers, 
other classes not being included in the limitations. Legislation taken in regard to Chi- 
nese laborers will be of such a character only as is necessary to enforce the regulation, 
limitation, or suspension of immigration, and immigrants shall not be subject to personal 
maltreatment or abuse. 

You will have observed that the absolute prohibition of immigration is 
forbidden, and that the regulation, limitation, or suspension of their coming 
rests upon the discretion of our government. The necessity which shall 
justify the exercise of this discretion, the forms essential to authenticate 
the need of restriction, the amount and nature of the injurious effects, 
threatened or accomplished, requisite to demand the operation of restrict- 
ive legislation — all these features are left in uncertainty for the future de- 
termination of our statesmen. 

In view of the comprehensive application of the constitution of the 
United States, as amended, to the subject of citizenship and the interdiction 
of any limitation of rights or privileges, based upon " race, color, or previ- 
ous condition of servitude," of the equality in the eyes of the law of all citi- 
zens and the need of the concurrence of our representatives in effectuating 
any remedy which the proposed treaty promises to accomplish, it becomes 
us all to minutely examine the character of this race, which, if not restricted 

1 88 1.] Race in Genealogy and the Chinese Emigration. cy 

in some manner, from its population of four hundred millions, can easily 
supply a sufficient number to change the race and character of th 
of, at least, our Pacific States. If, as some affirm, we are to have 
in determining who shall be our associates in the care and administrate 
the government devised, perfected, and protected by our ancestors, it 
desirable to know something of this race — as our future associates or 
petitors— what they have been and have accomplished, what customs they 
bring with them, with what tenacity they adhere to their habits and opin- 
ions, whether they will or can adopt our civilization, and whether 
promise to bring peace within our territory or threaten to pro -taut 

source of contest and embarrassment. Their diseases maybe dangerous. 
Their vices are contagious. Their virtues may strengthen us. 

Motives of self-protection, as well as of self-culture, demand a knowl- 
edge and selection of the influences that make and modify us, and thus 
exalt or degrade our condition and that of the age in which, and the people 
among whom, we live. The largest liberty of choice is left to each p 
in the selection of associates, pursuits, studies, and opinions. Wise and 
most fortunate is he who adopts the best, such as co-operate in perfecting 
his mental, moral, and even physical nature. 

In our representative system of government every existing form of be- 
lief and prejudice affects us. They enter into the determination of the na- 
ture and scope of our laws, for they are represented in legislation ; they 
modify the execution of those laws, for the jury-box is open to them, and 
from all quarters, the press, public discussion, and even art, they assail 
with undiminished persistence 

A three-fold source of information is open to us, in our hurried and 
imperfect consideration of the Chinese character, namely the published 
opinions of those who have resided among the people, the philosophic in- 
vestigations of such scientists as have made human race their study, and 
the experience of those of our countrymen who have had their customs and 
character, and the influences thereof, exemplified by the presence of large 
numbers of the Mongolians in their midst. 

Says Mr. Gray, in his work upon China : ''The moral character of the 
Chinese is a book written in strange letters which are more complex and 
difficult for one of another race, religion, and language to decipher, than 
their own singularly compounded word-symbols. In the same individual, 
virtues and vices apparently incompatible are placed side by side. Meek- 
ness, gentleness, docility, industry, contentment, cheerfulness, obedience to 
superiors, dutifulness to parents and reverence for the aged are, in one and 
the same person, the companions of insincerity, lying, flattery, treachery, 
cruelty, jealousy, ingratitude, avarice, and distrust of others. The Chinese 
are a weak and timid people, and in consequence, like all similarly consti- 
tuted races, they seek a natural refuge in deceit and fraud. Where they do 
not accept the indifference of atheism, they are the slaves of grossly super- 
stitious religions. Their social life suffers from the baneful effects of 

Their government is an absolute monarchy, and the emperor r< 
himself, and is recognized by the people, as the connecting link between 
themselves and the gods, with whom he is supposed to have communion at 
pleasure. Their trials in courts are conducted by the use of metho

candidates for the civil service, a great stimulus is given to education 
among the upper classes of society. 

" Their civilization," says Williams, " has been developed under peculiar 
forms and influence, and must be compared to, rather than judged by, that 
of Europeans ; the dissimilarity is as wide, perhaps, as can possibly exist 
between two races of beings having the same common nature and wants. 
If vain, they have been isolated ; if cowardly, they have had peace ; if they 
lack boldness in enterprise and the disposition to organize for great pur- 
poses, the government has not favored the accumulation of money or 
power in the hands of the common people. The pernicious habit of opium 
smoking prevails among all classes, and is spreading year by year. Gam- 
bling is universal." 

I >r. Robert Knox, in his work entitled " The Races of Men," speaking 
of the civilization of the Chinese (page 283, 2d ed.), says: 

"Long prior to the Christian era, the race inhabiting China .... was 
acquainted with the magnet, the art of printing, the making of gunpowder, 
and with most useful domestic and mechanical arts, yet they never could 
turn any of these inventions to any great account. On the contrary they 
remained stationary, whilst the Greek and the Roman, following the Coptic, 
and next the modern European, successively arose, culminated, and, with 
the exception of the last, terminated. In the meantime China appears to 
have been comparatively stationary; she neither invented nor discovered; 
their arts must have belonged to some other race, from whom she bor- 
rowed without rightly comprehending them. Their religion is a puzzle ; 
their morals of the lowest. Of science they can have none, nor is it clear 
that they comprehend the meaning of the term The hideous representa- 
tions of their deities shows the mind of the race." 

Regarding their condition now, after a comparatively long residence ot 
some of them among our people, we think no fairer conclusions can be 
reached than those deduced by the Joint Special Committee of the Forty- 
fourth Congress, and stated in their report submitted in February, 1877. 
The voluminous testimony taken in the investigation, we think justifies 
every statement made in that report. 

" In the opinion of the Committe, it may be said that the resources ot 
California and the Pacific Coast have been more rapidly developed with the 
cheap and docile labor of the Chinese than they would have been without 
this element. So far as material prosperity is concerned, it cannot be 
doubted that the Pacific Coast has been a great gainer. . . .• Laboring men 
and artisans, .perhaps without exception, were opposed to the influx of the 
Chinese, on the ground that hard experience' had shown that they were there- 
by thrown out of employment, and the means of decent livelihood were more 
difficult of acquisition. In the testimony will be found that of lawyers, 
doctors, divines, judges, and others in large numbers, speaking from their 
own observation and belief, that the apparent prosperity derived from the 
presence of the Chinese is deceptive and unwholesome, and ruinous to our 
laboring classes, promotive of caste, and dangerous to free institutions. . . . 
These two forces, Mongolian and Caucasian, are already in active oppo- 
sition. They do not amalgamate, and all conditions are opposed to any 
assimilation. The American people are progressive, and in favor of a re- 
sponsible representative government. The Mongolian race seems to have 
no desire for progress, and to have no conception of representative and 
free institutions. While conditions should be favorable to the growth and 

1 88 1.] Race in Genalogy and the Chinese Emigration. rg 

occupancy of our Pacific possessions by our own people, the Chinese have 
advantages which will put them far in advance in the race for possession. 

They can subsist where the Caucasian would starve. They can work for 
wages which would not furnish the barest necessities of life to an American. 
They make their way in California as they have in the Islands of the Sea ; 
not by superior force or virtue, or even industry, although they are as a 
rule industrious, but by revolting characteristics, and by dispensing with 
what have become necessities in modern civilization. To compete with 
them the American must come down to their level or below them. He 
cannot work so cheaply that the Chinese cannot compete with him." ( an 
he rely upon his greater strength and versatility? In the contest for sub- 
sistence, he that can subsist upon the least will last the longest. 

With this array of facts are we not justified in considering the question 
one of grave importance? The circumstance that the danger immediately 
threatens and injures only the extreme western limits of our land, should 
not in the least diminish the care with which the question ought to be con- 
sidered. The nation is one people, with one common destiny, one com- 
mon interest. The irritation of one member, the disturbance of the public 
peace and prosperity of any one state, demands, and should receive the 
careful inquiry and attention of all. There is nothing so subversive of the 
spirit of unity as a consciousness, in one part of the people, that their bur- 
dens are not appreciated, shared, and relieved by the mutual sympathy and 
co-operation of all. 

It has been said that "each race, probably from national vanity — the 
eternal enemy of all truth — undervalues the gifts of other races.'' We are 
not governed by* a spirit of exclusiveness, though we are justly proud of 
our civilization. We want to be just — just to the Chinese in their child- 
hood civilization — just to our fellow citizens — just, impartially just, to the 
obligations we are under to Republican institutions and Anglo-Saxon 
liberty — jealous, extremely jealous, of the safety and security of govern- 
ment " of the people, by the people, and for the people." It has cost too 
much and has proved too valuable to be sold for a mess of pottag 

After the lapse of the period prescribed by the naturalization laws, not- 
withstanding the fact that the Mongolian may be as ignorant of the principles 
and the spirit of our institutions as were his forefathers centuries ago, that 
he still retains unqualified affection for the arbitrary government of his own 
country, and regards with supercilious complacency and contempt all be- 
yond the care of that government as barbarians, his vote counts as em- 
phatically as that of the most patriotic and thoughtful citizen. Indeed, his 
own disregard of its sanctity will only serve to make him the prey and 
dupe of the demagogue, or the one that stoops to purchase his ballot. 

One of the greatest evils now threatening our public security is the 
thoughtless and ignorant use or abuse of the right of suffrage, and we may 
well- protest against enlarging the opportunity of evil. Many begin to 
think that the only practicable, and even then, partial remedy, is to be 
found in an educational qualification of the freedom of suffrage. The ap- 
plication of this remedy by the State governments, would at least 1 
sitate some familiarity with our language and institutions, tending to break 
down the isolation now belonging to the Chinese inhabitant. Even this 
qualification would afford but incomplete relief in removing the apathy oi 
the Mongolian race, and in harmonizing them with the spirit of our institu- 
tions and race. 

go The Descendants of James Alexander. [April, 

To have effectiveness, the restriction of suffrage through the amend- 
ment of the State constitutions, would need to be adopted over the entire 
union, and the practicability of such a change of policy and sentiment may 
be doubted. 

Even were this plan acquiesced in by the various State Governments, 
the status of the two races, the Caucasian and Mongolian, as to the lead- 
ing characteristics of action and thought, would remain without essential 
variance, and the step would be insignificant in direction of the attainment 
of what is unquestionably necessary in a Representative Government, 
namely, a spirit of nationality whose existence history affirms to be an im- 
possibility among a people composed of two distinct and dissimilar races. 
By a spirit of nationality we do not mean that harmony which comes from 
a complete identity of birth-place, of language, of religion, of custom, of 
taste, of education of mind and heart, but that general unity which issues 
from similarity of political antecedents, possession of a common history of 
civilization, a collective pride, dignity, regret, and humiliation, regarding 
the same incidents of the past. So long as this spirit exists, deepened and 
strengthened, it may be, by a common suffering, a participated baptism of 
blood, the discussions of free opinion and the struggles for party suprem- 
acy are always held in check and curbed by it. 

We do not believe that the changes of human history are made by the 
energy and enterprise of any one man — the demigod of his age ; nor do we 
concur in the theory that the civilization of humanity follows a law of growth 
as inexorable as fate, and completely independent of personal, individual 
will. Civilization is rather the result of free and noble choosing, of grand 
and unselfish doing by a people, by a race. Influences seem to have been 
conserved and centred to make our land the dwelling-place of the best, in 
all respects, the world ever saw. It brings responsibility. It enjoins care 
in its guardianship ; and this it well deserves of its children. 

Your Society, which studies and records the history of the fathers, has 
in view the welfare of their posterity.

269. Lewis Morris Rutherfurd, (his parents were both grandchildren f

Williams College, Massachusetts, 1833; studied Law tor two years 
with William H. Seward (afterward Governor of the State of New 
York) ; at Auburn, N. York, and one year with George Wood in the 
City of N. Y. Practiced law for three years with Peter Augustus [ay, 
and afterward with Hamilton Fish (who was afterward Secretary of 
State under Grant). He went to Europe in 1849 ar) d returned in 
July, 1852, and never resumed the active practice of the law, but 
devoted his leisure time to astronomical pursuits. He carried on a 
long series of experiments with a view of arriving at the best instru- 
mental and other adaptations of photography to astronomy. In 1 
he made and published observations on the spectra of the stars — the 
first after the striking discoveries of Bunsen and KirchofF; he also 
made and distributed photographs of the solar spectrum taken with 
bisulphide of carbon prisms ; this photograph was engraved and 
published in Schellen's translation of Secchis' book on the sun. Mr. 
Rutherfurd devised and described the mode of constructing the 
prisms used, and also a simple method of simultaneous adjustment of 
a battery of prisms for the angle of least deviation. In the cours 
his work on the star spectra he discovered and pointed out the value of 
the spectroscope in examining the achromatic condition of an object- 
glass and making use of this discovery was enabled in 1S64 to con- 
struct an objective of ri+ inches aperture and 14 feet focal length. 
corrected for photographic rays, with which unsurpassed photo- 
graphs of the sun, moon, and stars have been made The fust 
objective of this kind was a double achromatic combination of Hint 
and crown glass ; the second, made in t868, was an ordinary achro- 
matic of 13 inches aperture and 15 feet focal length, which could 
be corrected for photography by the attachment o( a menisci; 
flint glass directly in front of the objective, shortening its local

distance about twenty-seven inches. With one or the other of these 
objectives large numbers of astronomical photographs were taken, 
and have been measured with great precision by the use of a mi- 
crometer devised and constructed for that purpose by Mr. Rutherfurd. 

Hiving become convinced of the great value of the normal 
spectra produced by gratings, and being unable to procure them of 
sufficient precision, Mr. Rutherfurd, after much study and experi- 
ments, devised and constructed an automatic engine by which these 
gratings are ruled with great accuracy upon glass and speculum 
metal and have largely displaced prisms in the work of students of 
spectral analysis ; with one of these gratings Mr. Rutherfurd pro- 
duced and distributed, in 1876, a photograph of the solar spectrum 
on a large scale, which still remains unequalled. With a view of 
avoiding the errors produced by changes of temperature and flexure 
in large metallic circles, he devised and constructed a circle of 
glass upon which, with a diameter of nine inches, Mr. Rutherfurd 
claims that angles can be measured with greater precision than upon 
a metallic circle of three feet. 

His work has been recognized both at home and abroad by 
medals, memberships, and decorations.

Royal Astronomical Society, etc., etc. ; Trustee of Columbia College,

Q2 The Titus Family in America. [April, 


Three Generations. 

By the Rev. Anson Titus, Jr., Weymouth, Mass. 

Robert Titus, the first of the name in America, was born in 
England in 1600, probably St. Catherine's parish, near Stansted Ab- 
bots, Hertfordshire, some thirty miles north of London. • There is a 
probability that Robert was of the same family of Col. Silas Titus who 
played quite a part in the politics of his time. The father of Col. Silas 
was also Silas, and Silas senior had three sons, Silas, Stephen, and one 
other son, whom the record does not mention, but whom we suppose was 
Robert, who at the time was in America. Silas, Senr.,* married Constancia 

, who d. October 22, 1667. He d. Nov. 24, 1637. Their children 

were : Robert (?), b. 1600, removed to America in 1635 ; Silas, b. 1622 ; 
Stephen, d. March 30, 167 1. * 

Silas Titus, Jr., m. Catherine Winstanley, daughter of James Win- 
stanley, Esq., of Lancastershire. He entered a commoner of Christ's Church, 
Oxford, in 1637, and became about 1640 a member of one of the Inns of 
Court. In the grand rebellion, when parliament raised an army against 
the king, he obtained a captain's commission, but disapproving of the 
course pursued by the Independents, abandoned his colors for the royal 
standard, and was subsequently of eminent service to the two Charleses. 
Col. Silas Titus was a man of wit, and the author of a famous pamphlet 
called " Killing no Murder." It was published anonymously, and created 
a stir in political circles. King Charles rewarded him for services rendered. 
He d. in December, T704, aged 82, and was interred in the chancel of the 
parish church of St. James, at Bushey, in Hertfordshire, where his father 
and other members of the family also lie buried. f 

1. Robert Titus embarked from London April 3, 1635. The following 
is the entry in the passenger list, preserved in the Public Record Office, 
London. " Theis under written names are to be transported to New Eng- 
land, imbarqued in ye Hopewell, Mr. Wm. Bundick. The p'ties have 
brought certificate from the Minister & justices of Peace that they are no 
Subsedy men, they have taken the oath of Alleg. & Supremacie, 
Robert Titus, Husbandman of St. Katherin's, (aged) 35 
Hannah Titus, uxor 31 

Jo. Titus 8 

Edmond Titus 5 " 

They arrived at Boston in a few weeks following, and soon were granted 
land in the present town of Brookline, near Muddy River, adjoining Boston. 
Here the family remained two or three years, when they removed to the 
town of Weymouth, some nine miles to the southeast. Their land is 
described in the records of the town of Weymouth, and was located in the 
present village of North Weymouth, and is not far from the unfortunate

settlement which Capt. Weston made in Sept., 1622. In the spring of 16 1 i 
Robert, in company with some forty families, removed with the minisl 
the Weymouth parish, Rev. Samuel Newman, to the town of Rehoboth 
just east of Providence, R. I. He was one of the founders of the fust parish 
While a resident of Rehoboth he was often entrusted by the- freemen with 
offices of confidence. He was Commissioner for the Court of Plymouth 
from Rehoboth the years 1648-9, and 1650 and 1654. He had 
trouble witjj the authorities because he harbored Abney Ordway and 
family, they being of " evil fame," which, the author supposes, means they 
were Quakers. He soon after gave notice of his intention to leave the 
colony. He sold his property to Robert Jones, of Nantasket, 23d 3d mo. 
1654, and we fix this as about the date of his migration to Long Island. 
According to Thompson, his sons Samuel, Abiel, and Content, were free- 
holders in Huntington in 1666. John, the oldest son, remained in Reho- 
both, north Purchase, now Attleboro, and Edmond came to Hemp 
as early as 1650. The will of Hannah Titus, widow of Robert. 
made May 14, 1672. Letters of administration were granted her son Con- 
tent by Governor Andros, and an inventory made of the estate which 
amounted to ^52 13s. 6d, March 24, 1678-9. The following is a literal 
copy of her will, made at Huntington, L. I., where her home was. The 
original is on file in the office of the Clerk of the Court of Appeals, at Al- 
bany, N. Y. : 

_ " May 14th 1672. The last Will and testament of Hanna Titus, being 
in prefit memory, I bequeth my sovvl to God that gave it, and my body to 
the earth, and for my Estate Tdespose of it as followeth :— Imprimis I give 
to my sonn Content my house and all my land ; and out of the forsaid 
house and Lands I give to my sonn John tenn poundes, which my son 
Content is to pay him. And also I give to my son John my mare, and 
to my son Edmond I give a horse, and to my son Samuel a browne cow, 
and a yearlen stear, and I give to my son Samuel's wife my warming pan, 
and to my son Abialle's wife my smothing yron and to my son Contente's 
wife my Skimar, and for what remnantes of sarg and cloth I have, my will 
is, that it be equally divided among all my children, and to my dafter Su- 
sana I give my sarg hoode, and for all the rest of my estate' within the 
house and without it, I give to my sun Abiall and Content to be equally 
divided between them two, and to this my will I set my hand in the pres- 
ence of Richard William es the H marke of

3. Edmond Titus 3 (Robert 1 ), b. in England in 1630. He resided 
with his parents until 1650, when, according to Thompson, he came to 
Hempstead, where he resided a short time, thence to Old Westbury. The 
land at Old Westbury is still in the possession of the family. Edmond 
Titus early became a Quaker or Friend, for which he suffered many things 
at the hands of the authorities. 

From the records of the Quarterly Meeting we extract the following : 
" Edmond Titus, one that Received ye truth many years since and lived 
and dyed in it. In his latter days his Eyes grew dim that he could not see 
and thick of hearing, all which he bore very patiently. In the time of his 
last sickness his daughter Phebe field standing by him, he said, my Life is in 
Christ my God," with many more comfortable words. His Last words 
were these : — I have put away all filthiness & superfluity & Hautiness. 
I have Received with meekness ye engrafted word that is Able to save the 
soul & soon departed this life in a quiet frame of Spirit sensible to the last 
ye 7 d. 2d mo., 1715 aged near 85 years." [N. Y. Genealogical and .Bio- 
graphical Record, 1876, p. 42.] " His wife survived him twelve years and 
died the 17th of 2d mo. 1727 in ye ninetieth year of her age. Some years 
before her death she was helpless and kept her bed. Her natural faculties 
became much impaired ; yet she retained a lively sense of the Divine 
goodness, and many times near her door, feeling the fresh springs of Di- 
vine life to well up in her soul, she would exhort her children and others 
to wait upon God, that they might thereby be made sensible of the work- 
ings of Truth in their hearts which was the way through obedience there- 
unto to find peace with God." 

Edmond Titus m. Martha, dau. of Win, and Jane Washburne, Hemp- 
stead, who d. 2d mo., 1727, aged about 90. The following were their 

children :

five hundred and three thousand names of descendants of Richard Hubbell, embracing a 
period of two hundred and thirty years. The following names occur among hundreds of 
others in the female lines of descent, and are (in most instances) followed through several 
generations : Alley, Aistin, Armstrong, Banks, Barlow, Barnum, Bassett, Blackman,

phical sketches, numerous old wills, deeds, and family papers, and twenty-eight engrav- 
ings, besides coats of arms, etc. It is printed on fine tinted paper, will contain over four 
hundred pages, and will be sold to subscribers at $5.50 per copy, cloth ; $7.50, leather, 
large octavo. Matter of interest may still be sent to the author, whose address is 1607

St. James' Church. — On the 17th of May last, the Rev. C. B. Smith, rector of the 
parish, delivered a very important and useful historical discourse commemorative of the 
" threescore years and ten" festival of this church. Such discourses, prepared with the 
care which characterizes this, are entertaining and valuable. We wish the marriage and 
baptismal registers of all the churches of this city could find their way into print. Gen. 
James Grant Wilson, who was largely interested in the success of the celebration, will 
please accept thanks for a copy of the discourse. P. 

Titus Family. — The compiler of the article on the Titus Family in this number is 
engaged in writing the history of the Titus Family of America, and would be pleased to 
receive aid in this direction from the various genealogical students who may have notes 
relative to the family. Mr. Titus is in a position where he can aid genealogists and 
genealogical inquirers, and would gladly exchange or reciprocate information. His ad- 
dress is Weymouth, Mass. 


Phillips. — George S. Phillips, of Smithtown, L. I., a descendant in the seventh 
generation from the Rev. George, the early settler of Watertown, Mass., and in the fifth 
generation from the Rev. George, of Brookhaven, L. I. , died at the old paternal home- 
stead, at the head of the Nipequogue River, on the seventeenth day of January last, at a 
very advanced age. The early development of the family in America appears in much 
detail in Bond's " History of Watertown," with only a partial sketch of this Long 
Island branch, which is more fully given in Thompson's " History of Long Island," Vol. 
II , p. 459. The recent splendid genealogy of the Whitney Family gives a convenient 
chart at its No. 1589, and sketches many descendants of this branch. But this Mr. Phil- 
lips has left no descendants, and had neither brother nor sister. He showed his appre- 
ciation of genealogy by being a constant reader of our Record, and filled his plac« and 
duty as a country gentleman by constant and careful attention to the various duties 
which his neighbors and friends were free to impose upon him. We are in danger of 
being tedious by attempting to recite them. In 1819 he was appointed postmaster, as 
his father had been before him, and he held this nineteen years. He was first an in- 
spector, and aft.erward a commissioner of schools. In 1827 he was chosen a justice of 
the peace, and this office he held twelve years. In 1828 he was supervisor, and he held 
the office, with intermissions, about twenty-three years. In 1831 or 1835 he was a mem- 
ber of Assembly, an office long previously held by his father. In 1837 he was chosen 
county clerk for three years. These various positions and others he faithfully filled. 

The use of careful genealogical accounts of a family is made patent to the lawyers 
by the legal forms required to prove his will. All his heirs are entitled to notice. One 
sister of his father had eight children who left descendants. Several of these had large 
families, which are scattered all over the country. It is found no light task to enumerate 
and name them, with their residences, and say which are under age. His aged widow, 
who has seen very few of them, finds this difficulty in the way of enjoying his provision 
for her comfort. We mention it to caution others. M.

Vol. XII. NEW YORK, JULY, 1881. No. 3. 


By Mr. William II. Lee. 

(Read before the Society, April 22, 1881.) 

[With a Portrait.) 

There are few subjects more interesting to the general reader, and few 
about which there have been more attractive volumes written, than the 
biographies which give the incidents of the early life of those who have in 
mature years become eminent and attained a worldwide celebrity. The 
fascination for such reading is not confined alone to youth, who are sup- 
posed to possess a love for the marvellous and curious in matters which 
their seniors regard as unimportant, but is common to all, of every age and 
condition, who find pleasure in the study of history and the biographies of 
those who have served to contribute to the happiness of man, and to the 
furtherance of those objects for which he was created. 

This sentiment not only embraces the particulars of the personal history 
of their young life, viz.: their trials, successes, hopes, aspirations, etc., but 
gives an interest to all that belongs to them — their kindred, their homes, 
the room which gave them birth — and in all the particulars, in the minutest 
details, that have in themselves the undoubted evidence of authenticity. 
More especially does this hold true as regards those who have risen from 
poverty and humble life, and, endowed with gifts, encountered great diffi- 
culties, but, in spite of obstacles, taken rank among the men of their time. 

This serves to explain the halo that surrounds the birth-place of the bard 
of Avon, and gives to the little cottage the interest which attracts to it, 
year by year, the thousands of pilgrims from every part of the civilized 
world. The modern traveller, who for the first time makes the tour of 
Europe, and has made for his guidance the conventional route and places 
to visit, may find it necessary to restrict himself to a lesser number, but 
whatever circumstances may compel him to do as to others, it is seldom

that he does not find his way to Stratford, and the still more obscure birth- 
place of Burns in the remote corner of Ayrshire. 

So in our own country, we read of the boyhood of Franklin, as he made 
his entry into the city of Philadelphia, making his frugal meal from the 
penny loaf as he walked the streets seeking employment at his trade ; and 
in this, with his subsequent career in that city, we have an apt illustration 
of what we have assumed with reference to the little events of the young 
life of those who have made their mark in the world's history. 

The invitation to read to your Society this evening the particulars of the 
life of Elihu Burritt, has been accepted by me with pleasure, but not with- 
out misgivings as to whether I can give to the subject full justice. The 
pleasure referred to is to be found in the satisfaction of putting on record 
something that may be lost or dependent upon tradition, and the misgiv- 
ings arise from the conviction that the subject could be so much better 
treated by some one of your members more accustomed to literary labors. 

We are to read to you, then, of the life of one who was born in pov- 
erty — the son of a village cobbler ; one who, with the exception of a single 
winter's course in an academy, and the few years afforded him in the com- 
mon schools of the district, accomplished by self-education, alone and un- 
aided, what perhaps no other one has ever done under the same conditions 
and circumstances. 

The parents of Elihu Burritt were respectable, but in humble circum- 
stances. The father, an industrious mechanic, working at his trade in a 
part of the house in which they lived, situated a little out of the village 
centre, on the main road to Hartford, in the town of New Britain, Con- 
necticut. The house was a plain wooden building, one and a half stories 
high, standing a few feet from the road, the gable fronting the street, and 
upon a lot of a half acre of land, and all quite simple and unpretentious. 
Here was born, and here lived in his early years, the subject of our sketch ; 
and it is much to be regretted that the house has since been destroyed by 
fire, and not a vestige remains to remind the traveller of the birth-place of 
one who will, as we believe, in coming time, be regarded as one of the 
remarkable men of his day and generation. The mother of Burritt — 
her maiden name Elizabeth Hinsdale — was a devout Christian woman of 
many resources, who could turn her hand to almost anything, and a valu- 
able acquisition, not only to her household, but to the community in which 
she lived — a community then mostly agricultural, but much given to skill 
and invention in handicraft, and who, at that period of time, were uncon- 
sciously planting the seeds of industries that have since made it to New 
England what Sheffield and Birmingham are to Old England. 

The yard surrounding the little house was devoted to the growing of 
vegetable products for home use, and on one side a thick undergrowth of 
mulberry, a source of supply for the leaf-devouring silk-worm, indigenous 
to the east, and to which one room in the house was appropriated by the 
painstaking housewife. The windows and the door fronting the street were 
surrounded on all sides with morning glories, and the pathway to the en- 
trance lined with marigolds, immortelles, and pansies, the whole having 
an air of neatness and comfort, directed with a single eye as to the ways 
and as to the means. 

They were a family of five sons and five daughters. The eldest, Elijah 
Hinsdale, was a character of so much importance in his influence upon the 
future of his younger brother, that an extended notice of him becomes nee-

essary, and also gives the writer an opportunity of paying a grateful tribute 
to a faithful preceptor. He was early put to a trade in a neighboring town, 
but, doubtless inspired by the ambition of his mother, sought an education 
beyond that offered by the district schools, and prepared himself for a higher 
range of study, and was enabled to give himself a partial course in Will- 
iams College in the class of 1819. This elder brother was a man of great 
energy of character, of a commanding presence, much given to ostenta- 
tion and display, imperious in his manner, and too fond of change and ad- 
venture to make the success in life which his great talents would otherwise 
have accomplished. Leaving college, he started out, bent on making both 
fame and fortune, and we next hear of him in Milledgeville, Georgia, as 
the editor and proprietor of a newspaper, with prospects of permanency and 
usefulness. An unexpected element of discord, however, suddenly pre- 
sented itself at this time, just as he had got well-established in his vocation, 
married, and settled, as he supposed, for life. 

The slavery question, heretofore a subject that had been discussed with 
some degree of freedom, had awakened the conscience of the North, and 
was then becoming the absorbing subject of the nation, entering into 
our politics, dividing religious bodies, and agitating the whole social 
organization of our life and being. Burritt had taken a wife from a 
Southern family, and in a measure adapted himself to Southern habits and 
modes of thinking, and was not especially averse to the system, but could 
not endure the ban put upon a free discussion of the whole subject, and 
was, as a Northern-born man and editor of a political organ in the capital 
of a great State, an object of suspicion and jealously. He chafed with the 
consciousness that he was watched in his every movement ; that his cor- 
respondence was invaded and made to tell against him ; and that every 
word that was put to press in his paper was the subject of unfair criticism 
and comment. It became apparent that his presence in the South was not 
to be tolerated, and he was privately informed by those who sympathized 
with him in his proscription, that a Committee of Safety was organizing, 
and that he was to have short notice to flee the country. He was speedily 
furnished with the necessary means of escape, and, leaving his faithful wife 
and children, got a good start North, through the wild and difficult passes 
of the Carolinas, hotly pursued by enemies, angry with his defiance of their 
right to interfere with the liberty of the press, and the freedom of speech. 

Returning to his native town, he was shortly joined by his family, and in 
1828-29, established a High School, which took a prominent rank in the 
educational institutions of the State. He was the author of several class 
books for schools, one of which, the " Geography of the Heavens." became 
generally adopted by teachers as a work of merit and originality, the re- 
peated editions of which brought to the author a handsome income at a 
most opportune time. He lavishly furnished his school with means of in- 
struction unusual in private establishments in that day. There was, for 
example, a massive globe — a planetarium showing the working of the solar 
system ; a telescope of great power and immense sweep in the observatory 
besides a great variety of chemical apparatus and philosophical instru- 
ments for practical experiments in the sciences. 

Elihu Burritt, the principal subject of our sketch, was born December 
8, 1810, and was sixteen years younger than his brother of whom we have 
been reading ; and although the object of this paper is to give the particulars 
of him, who was so widely known at home and abroad, yet our biography 

104 -Reminiscences of the Early Life of Elihu Burritt. [July, 

would be incomplete, were we to omit all notice of the brother mentioned 
above. Elihu, at the early age of sixteen, indentured himself to a black- 
smith in his native town, and was employed for several years in the shop 
of one Thomas Burrill, situated where now stands the Baptist church of 
the city. He was then known as a steady, industrious employe, above 
those of his fellows in character and thought, as excessively fond of books 
and reading, and it is remembered by those now living, that when engaged 
in serving his apprenticeship, he would, in his leisure moments and even- 
ings, have in his possession, borrowed from some of the scant collections 
of the town, authors like Scott and Moore, which he would read and re- 
read, and from some of which he could recite whole cantos, without once 
referring to the text. The trade of a blacksmith in New England, fifty 
years ago, it must be understood was, to a certain extent, to be a jack of 
all trades ; it was to work in other metals besides iron, and was, in part, 
the trade of a wheelwright, locksmith, horseshoer, etc. In all these Burritt 
had become a practical worker, and, in each, handy in the use of tools, the 
knowledge of which served to help him through a good many tight places 
in all his after years. 

It was at this time, when twenty-one years of age, and just half a 
century ago this present winter, that he entered the school of his brother 
for a winter's term of study, and timidly took the place at his desk in a 
class of fifteen to twenty, all of whom were by several years his juniors. 
With application and industry, and a memory which seemed to never fail 
him, he soon took a high rank in the class ; and in the facility with which he 
solved the problems of the higher mathematics, and his aptness in the 
study of Latin and French, we have the secret of his success, as an ex- 
ample of self-education and culture. 

The term ending, he again resumed his labor at the anvil, giving every 
moment of his spare time to the continuation of the study of those lang- 
uages, and having conceived a lively interest in the discovery, that with a 
perfect knowledge of any one of the primitive languages there was opened 
the way to an easy acquisition of all deriving their origin from that one 
source, he, without any definite hope or expectation as to the practical 
advantage they would ever be to him, and with the little means at his 
command, resolved upon spending the following winter in New Haven, 
under the shadow of Yale College, as if to be in proximity with the walls 
of that venerable institution would be a help to him in his undertakings. 
Here, in the quiet of his room — himself the sole occupant — with a well- 
worn copy of Homer's Iliad, without note or comment in his hands, never 
having read a line of the book, and the use of a Greek Lexicon, he made 
a mental resolution, that if in the course of the first day he could make 
out two lines of the book, he would never thereafter ask help in the study 
of the Greek, of either tutor or professor. Before, the close of the day he 
had finished fifteen lines and committed the originals to memory, and from 
this successful experiment he established the theory that, with the posses- 
sion of the rudimental books used in teaching, there was no reason why he 
could not, with perseverance and patience, read and write the languages 
of the whole world. 

Acting upon this theory, he at once undertook the study of modern 
tongues, of which his thorough knowledge of Latin was the key, and giv- 
ing a part of each day to Greek, he divided the remaining hours to the 
study of French, Spanish, Italian, and German, until he had acquired such 

1 88 1.] Reminiscences 0/ the Early Life of Elihu Burritt. \qc 

knowledge of them all, that he could read in either, some favorite air 
with tolerable fluency. 

Returning to the home of his birth, he found fur a time occupation in 
teaching, and then was persuaded to engage in some business, for which he- 
had neither taste or inclination, when the financial crash of 1837 caused 
him to return to his trade, a never-failing resource when sti 
means of support. 

Having become possessed with the determination of making his next 
move to where he could have access to books of all the known languages, 
he, with cane and pack in hand, on the morning of one of the days of 1 
spring, having received a mother's blessing, started on foot tor Boston for 
that purpose, and found in the Antiquarian Library at Worcester the 
treasures he so much coveted, and here he regularly divided his time be- 
tween the workshop and the library, and among the various languages he 
had studied with more or less care, the following may be mentioned : Latin, 
Greek, Hebrew, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Swedish, 
Dutch, Danish, Hungarian, Syriac, Turkish, Bohemian, Persian, \V 
Arabic, Polish, Portuguese, Cornish, Chaldiac, Gaelic, Flemish, Irish, Sam- 
aritan, Sanskrit, Ethiopic, Hindustani, Icelandic, Breton-Celtic, Basque, 
Manx, and Amharic. 

Up to this time he had so quietly pursued his studies, and so little was known 
of his acquisitions, outside of a few personal friends, that he had become 
regarded by many as a monomaniac, having an inordinate love of books 
treating of languages, and that the time he gave to their perusal and study 
was a harmless eccentricity, for which there could not by any possibility be 
corresponding benefits. 

He was now near thirty years of age, the last ten of which he had about 
equally divided between manual labor and hard study, and it occurred to 
him that he might get employment in the translation of works in foreign 
tongues for American publications, and with that in view he addressed him- 
self to Mr. William Lincoln, of Worcester, a gentleman who had taken a 
deep interest in his welfare, and in this letter he made a frank statement of 
what he had achieved, to use his own words, "in the pursuit of knowledge 
under difficulties." This letter Mr. Lincoln forwarded to Governor Edward 
Everett, of Boston, with one of his own written in behalf of Mr. Burritt. 
and in the course of an address made hy Mr. Everett before the Educa- 
tional Convention of the State of Massachusetts, then sitting at Taunton. 
the letter of Mr. Burritt was read in full, and found its way in the report ot 
the proceedings in the Boston papers of the day. 

With the exception of a few introductory lines, I beg leave to quote 
this brief autobiography, as contained in this letter, which gives a -more cor- 
rect impression of the aims of this extraordinary man than anything we can 

" I was the youngest of many brethren, and my parents were poor. My 
means of education were limited to the advantages of a district school ; 
and those again were circumscribed by my father's death, which deprived 
me at the age of fifteen of those scanty opportunities which I had | 
iously enjoyed. A few months after his decease, I apprenticed myself to 
a blacksmith in my native village. Thither I carried an indomitable taste 
for reading, which I had previously acquired through the medium of the 
social library, all the historical works in which, at that time, 1 had perused. 
At the expiration of little more than half of my apprenticeship, 1 suddenly 

106 Reminiscences of the Early Life of Elihu Bnrritt. [July, 

conceived the idea of studying Latin. Through the assistance of an elder 
brother, who had himself obtained a collegiate education by his own ex- 
ertions, I completed my Virgil during the evenings of one winter. After 
some time devoted to Cicero and a few other Latin authors, I commenced 
the Greek. At this time it was necessary that I should devote every hour 
of daylight and a part of the evening to the duties of my apprenticeship. 
Still 1 carried my Greek grammar in my hat, and often found a moment, 
when I was heating some large iron, when I could place my book open be- 
fore me against the chimney of my forge, and go through with tupto, Utpteis, 
tuptci, unperceived by my fellow-apprentices, and, to my confusion of face, 
sometimes with a detrimental effect to the charge in my fire. At evening 
I sat down, unassisted and alone, to the Iliad of Homer, twenty books of 
which measured my progress in that language during the evenings of that 

" I next turned to the modern languages, and was much gratified to learn 
that my knowledge of Latin furnished me with a key to the literature of 
most of the languages of Europe. This circumstance gave a new impulse 
to the desire of acquainting myself with the philosophy, derivation, and 
affinity of the different European tongues. ' I could not be reconciled to 
limit myself in these investigations to a few hours after the arduous labors 
of the day. I therefore laid down my hammer and went to New Haven, 
where I recited, to native teachers in French, Spanish, German, and Ital- 
ian. At the expiration of two years I returned to the forge, bringing with 
me such books in those languages as I could procure. When I had read 
these books through, I commenced the Hebrew, and with an awakened desire 
for examining another field, and by assiduous application, I was enabled 
in a few weeks to read this language with such facility, that I allotted it to 
myself as a task to read two chapters in the Hebrew Bible before break- 
fast each morning, this and an hour at noon being all the time 1 could 
devote to myself during the day. After becoming somewhat familiar with 
the Hebrew, I looked around me for the means of initiating myself into 
the fields of Oriental literature, and to my deep regret and concern I found 
my progress in this direction hedged up by the want of requisite books. I 
immediately began to devise means of obviating this obstacle ; and, after 
many plans, I concluded to seek a place as a sailor on board some ship 
bound to Europe, thinking in this way to have opportunities for collecting 
at different ports such works in the modern and Oriental languages as I 
found necessary for my object. I left the forge and my native place to 
carry this plan into execution. 

" I travelled on foot to Boston, a distance of more than one hundred 
miles, to find some vessel bound to Europe. In this I was disappointed ; 
and, while revolving in my mind what step next to take, I accidentally 
heard of the ' American Antiquarian Society ' in Worcester. I immedi- 
ately bent my steps toward this place. I visited the hall of the Antiquar- 
ian Society and found there, to my infinite gratification, such a collection 
of ancient, modern, and Oriental languages as I never before conceived to 
be collected in one place ; and, Sir. you may imagine with what sentiments of 
gratitude I was affected when, upon evincing a desire to examine some of 
these rich and rare works, I was kindly invited to an unlimited participa- 
tion in all the benefits of this noble institution. Availing myself of the 
kindness of the directors, I spent about three hours daily at the hall, 
which, with an hour at noon and about three in the evening, make up the 

i88i.] Reminiscences of the Early Life of Eliliu Burritt. 107 

portion of the day which I appropriate to my studies, the rest being oc- 
cupied in arduous manual labor. Through the facilities afforded by this 
institution, I have been able to add so much to my previous acquaintance 
with the ancient, modern, and Oriental languages, as to be able to read up- 
wards of fifty of them with more or less facility." 

_ The above was read by Mr. Everett in his usual clear and melodious 
voice, and with all the pathos he was in the habit of giving to matter in 
which he was specially interested, and toan audience of professional educators 
— and to those, too, with perhaps a i<z\\ exceptions, who had never before 
even heard of the name of the author of the letter, and produced, as may 
well be supposed, a profound sensation. 

Mr. Everett concluded as follows : " I trust I shall be pardoned by the 
author of this letter, and the gentleman to whom it is addressed, for the lib- 
erty which I have taken — unexpected, I am sure, by both of them, in thus 
making it public. It discloses a resolute purpose of improvement, under 
obstacles and difficulties of no ordinary kind, which excites my admiration 
— I may say, my veneration. It is enough to make one who has good op- 
portunities to hang his head in shame." 

The fame of Mr. Burritt was soon spread throughout the land, and his 
acquaintance was sought by scholars and savants from every part of our 
own country, and by many from abroad. He was prevailed upon to enter 
the lecture field, and prepared one entitled "Application and Genius," in 
which he took the ground that all success in every department of literature, 
science, metaphysics, and learning generally, was the result of application 
and not of genius. He was popularly credited with possessing an intuitive 
knowledge of the science of languages, and his acquisitions in the tongues 
were accounted for as we are in the habit of accounting for the prodigies 
that are now and then developed in mathematics, music, and art. The 
lecture was evidently prepared in part to disabuse the public sentiment in 
what he deemed an unfair estimate they had put upon himself; and his 
novel treatment of the subject, together, no doubt, with the natural cur- 
iosity, that seemed everywhere rife, of seeing one who had been the subject 
of much newspaper comment, gave him a prestige in advance of his ap- 
pearance, and the lecture was repeated upwards of sixty times in the winter 
of 1 84 1, in almost as many towns and cities, and to large and interested 

It is not to be inferred from what we have read respecting Elihu Bur- 
ritt, that self-education has not its disadvantages. Quite the contrary are 
the conclusions we are compelled to acknowledge. The universities from 
their stand-point have never been quite ready to accept Burritt as a linguis- 
tic scholar, but credit him with having achieved a great success, and as a 
signal example of what can be done under manifold difficulties. They 
— the professors in the schools — affirm, that all knowledge of tongues 
must necessarily be imperfect that is not reached by some prescribed cur- 
riculum- — means furnished through the lessons of the past, and directed by 
the wisdom that comes from the highest ranks of learning. They cite, as 
among the requisites of excellence, and not acquired, except through the 
agency of teachers, a thorough knowledge of the idioms with which all 
languages are invested ; the pronunciation and correct use of words that 
are acquired, and only acquired, by the familiar interchange of verbs, moods, 
and tenses. 

Mr. Burritt had none of the natural graces of an orator. His style was 

108 Reminiscences of the Early Life of Elihu Burritt. LJuly, 

too florid and studied for a popular speaker, and his voice lacked the flexi- 
bility and compass to command attention in ordinary assemblies ; but these 
were forgotten in the earnestness of his manner, and the sincerity with 
which he presented his subjects, and more than all, in the impression he 
conveyed to those who listened to him, as being one that had at heart the 
good of the masses, and an entire abnegation of self. 

Mr. Burritt' s pursuit of the languages was quite as much historical as it 
was to acquire a knowledge of their use, and to be able to read and write 
them with facility. He was accustomed to take up, simultaneously, what 
he called a whole family of languages ; carefully arrange in order their 
respective alphabets, names of numerals, and words in common use ; and 
in this way become familiarly acquainted with a great number of dialects, 
and in a very short time have a tolerable knowledge of what would, to the 
ordinary student, seem the result of the labor of years. It was with him a 
curious fact, that within the boundaries of a nationality like the Islands of 
Great Britain, Ireland, and the Isle of Man, there should be, from the time 
of the Conquest, people using four separate forms of speech besides the 
recognized vernacular, viz. : the Irish, Welsh, Highland Scotch, and Manx, 
all owing allegiance to the same government, and yet quite unintelligible 
to each other, and all having distinct class books, and a literature of their 

His devotion to the inquiries as to the origin and causes of these sub- 
jects never ceased, and he was continually finding a stimulus to his love of 
research and study in the unexpected discoveries which constantly pre- 
sented themselves, the more diligently he worked out the problems, in what 
he thought a much neglected field. 

There are numerous examples on record, both of his ability to translate 
into English the various languages he had acquired, and also to write out 
correctly those he had undertaken to study. On one occasion he had sub- 
mitted to him, for translation, an important Will in one of the Scandina- 
vian dialects, which was not only a very old instrument, but, from some 
inexplicable reason, one that could not be put into English by those who 
had been applied to for the purpose. Burritt's translation was accepted 
by the courts, and the will probated upon the evidence furnished by his 
report. At another time, at Worcester, having free access to a Celto-Bre- 
ton Dictionary and Grammar, published by the Royal Antiquarian Society 
of France, he became greatly interested in the unique language of ancient 
Brittany — which, like the quaint and unchanged costumes now in use in the 
department of the Ille et Vilane, has been transmitted within a circum- 
scribed district — a dialect which had its origin from a settlement of Celts 
in the fifteenth century. In the course of time, Mr. Burritt addressed himself 
to the Society in that language, thanking them for the means furnished him, 
an American citizen, of becoming acquainted with their original tongue. 
In due time he received an official acknowledgment of his letter, and a 
certification of the correctness of its composition. That this letter, bear- 
ing date August 12th, 1838, was unusual, and a surprise, seems apparent, 
when it is considered that the original was carefully framed by the Society, 
and noted as the only letter ever known to have been written by a native 
American in the Celto-Breton language, and it now hangs upon the walls 
of the Museum at Rennes as one of the curiosities of foreign correspon- 

In 1865 he received, without any solicitation on his part, a commission 

1 88 1.] Reminiscences of the Early Life of Elihu Burritt. iog 

as Consul at Birmingham, and was, for four years, and until the clo 
that administration, a faithful and diligent officer of the Government. His 
natural tastes were foreign to what are usually required of political aspi- 
rants, and this appointment, he felt assured, was made by President Lin- 
coln from the bond of sympathy growing out of the many points of sim- 
ilarity in their character, and in the struggles each had encountered in the 
voyage from youth to manhood. Burritt was of a retiring disposition. 
timid and gentle in his manners, thin and lank in his person, and when' 
engaged in the subjects to which he had devoted his life, oblivious to every- 
thing around him ; his personal appearance was, in many respects, like that 
of Lincoln's, his face, when in repose, having the same deep and indescri- 
bable expression so familiar to those who were intimate with the late 
martyred President. 

The writer of this manuscript instinctively feels that he should explain 
how he has presumed to give the public, through your Society, Mr. Presi- 
dent, this biography. There has never been written out, in detail, the par- 
ticulars of the boyhood of Burritt, and the number of those who can, from 
personal knowledge, give these events are, year by year, lessening. We 
cannot assert that justice has not been done our hero, but there has been, 
as we think, a misconception as regards his attainments, which were not 
phenomenal, but the results of a man, with good natural gifts, determined 
upon gaining a knowledge of languages by the methods we have described. 

Burritt had for some years been engaged in many of the philanthropic 
enterprises of the day, and was made the editor of a newspaper published 
at Worcester, advocating anti-slavery, peace, temperance, and self-culture. 
While actively engaged in these duties, the disturbing question of the north- 
west boundary joining the British possessions had assumed a serious aspect 
in the councils of both nations, and with an important election pending, 
Mr. Burritt thought he saw in some of the leaders of the political parties 
in this country a determination that a rupture should be precipitated for 
unworthy ends — a rupture that should and could be prevented by adopting 
the methods he represented as the Agent of Peace and the conservative 
element of the two great nations. He thereupon, on his own account, 
embarked for England, and, in a series of addresses throughout the king- 
dom, advocated a peaceful solution of this and of all other controversies 
that might thereafter arise between the two countries, and that they be 
concluded by treaty, if possible, and that failing, then by arbitration or 
congresses. In the final settlement of this — called the Oregon question 
— he thought he realized the triumph of the principles of peace, of which 
he had become an agent and apostle. 

Mr. Burritt had in his mission been most cordially received by the Eng- 
lish people, and, upon the adjustment of the political question, he was pre- 
vailed upon to take up his residence there and become identified with some 
of the benevolent societies, whose origin and support were mostly from the 
distinguished Quakers of England, and although not himself of their num- 
ber in his religious belief, he, in his convictions and sympathies, was in 
close affinity with many of their principles, and for several years was em- 
ployed as the Corresponding Secretary of the Peace Society of Great 

It is not the purpose of the writer to anything more than to touch upon 
the events of the latter half of the life of Mr. Burritt ; that has been faith- 
fully performed by his friend and biographer, Mr. Northend, in a volume 

I IO Reminiscences of the Early Life of EUhu Burritt. [July, 

published in this city. Our contribution is intended to furnish personal 
reminiscences of his life up to the time he was made known to the public 
by Governor Everett at Taunton. 

Mr. Burritt's residence, however, in England, extending over a period of 
ten years, was an eventful one. The published accounts of his struggles 
in self-edueation, in the face of difficulties that everywhere beset him, ap- 
peared in a periodical, edited by William and Mary Howitt, and seemed 
to take with the English public, in their regard for the quaint proverb, 
"There is nothing that succeeds like success," and he was received every- 
where in the field of letters, and made hosts of friends, with whom he kept 
up a friendly correspondence to the time of his death. 

Mr. Burritt was the author of numerous books and pamphlets, most of 
which he had prepared abroad, and published in England under his per- 
sonal supervision. Two of these publications, entitled " Walks from Lon- 
don to Land's End" and "Walks from London to John O' Groat's," were 
admirably suited for popular reading, and brought to the author the best 

About two years after his arrival in England, the Irish famine of 1848 
had enlisted the benevolent of our own country in sending to that distressed 
people of our abundance, upon which Mr. Burritt voluntarily made himself 
a most useful agent in the distribution of the gifts in kind sent from the 
United States. In this duty, for which he was specially adapted, and in 
the writings he had published during his short residence there, and by his 
speeches in behalf of peace and brotherhood when the perils of war seemed 
imminent, he undoubtedly became the best known, as he was the most 
popular, American in England. 

If not the father, he was the most active promoter of the international 
treaty for "Ocean Penny Postage" between the United States and Europe 
—a measure that caused him to cross and recross the ocean several times, 
and which, in its general interest and beneficent results, was one of the 
most popular acts of his life ; and for his services in its behalf he should 
have received in some form substantial recognition from our Government. 

The latter ten years of the life of Mr. Burritt were mostly spent upon 
what he termed his " Hill Farm," situated prominently in his native town, 
where, with a widowed sister and his accomplished nieces, he gave his time 
to literary labor, and in taking an active interest in all that pertained to 
the welfare of the town he loved so much. 

His love of research and habits of application were such, that he nat- 
urally took to antiquarian study, and for many years previous to. his death 
had given much time to gathering materials for the publication of a " His- 
tory of the Town of Farmington," the parent of several that have since 
been set off from the original boundary of about fifteen miies square, and 
one of the oldest settlements in the colony. 

The city of New Britain and the townships of Berlin, Kensington, South- 
ington, Bristol, and Burlington were embraced in the first grant to the or- 
iginal town, and Mr. Burritt had undertaken the task of writing a complete 
account of its rise and progress, with the biographies of the many eminent 
personages who have gone out from its boundary to give honor and credit 
to the land of their birth. 

The biographical history of both sexes who have, in the now nearly two 
hundred and fifty (250) years of its settlement, filled places of prominence in 
almost every profession and walk in life, would embrace some of the most

able and best-educated minds of the country. Farmington, in its present 
limits, is exempt from the innovations that have made such changes in the 
surrounding towns, and has to-day the same quiet and aristocratfc appear- 
ance as in the early years of this century. It has always been the centre 
of a cultivated circle ; and, as in its traditions, so now it has, as the most 
prominent feature of the village, one of the most thorough and complete 
educational schools in the country. 

The biographical literature of New England will, as we believe, in the 
distant future— the generations yet unborn— be among the most interest- 
ing and valuable records we can leave to those who succeed us in this and 
kindred societies ; and it is a hopeful and significant sign that at this time 
there is so much attention given to this neglected subject, and that our month- 
lies and town histories are alive to the importance of putting in form that 
which would inevitably be lost if left to a new and migratory people, who 
are fast removing the landmarks of the early settlers of our country. ' 

That the town of which we have been reading will in course of time do 
her duty in regard to the manuscripts left by Mr. Burritt, we cannot for a 
moment doubt, and the object of our paper this evening will have been 
accomplished, if in this brief contribution we do something towards trans- 
mitting the simple story of Elihu Burritt, the blacksmith, who died March 
6, 1879, and now sleeps in a spot selected by himself in the cemetery of 
his native town.

Bayard — Cornell. — Can any one of your readers furnish me names, and authority for 
the same, with the dates of birth, death, and marriage, of the parents of William Bayard, 
and of the parents of his wife ? Wm. Bayard was born 1761, died 1826, married 1783. 
His wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Samuel Cornell and Susan Mampson or Mabson. I 
should like to have her pedigree. E. c. JAY. 

Wolstan Brockway. — This New England forefather was the ancestor of all of the 
Brockway name in America, so far as now known. He is first heard of at Saybrook, 
Connecticut, in 1659, when he purchased in Lyme, on the east side of the river, and re- 
moved to the " Black Hall " precinct in that town. He subsequently bought a large tract, 
in its northern extremity, on the bank of the Connecticut, called for nearly two centuries 
" Joshua Town," after a famous Indian Sachem named Joshua, who originally lived there. 
Wolstan Brockway died in the early part of the last century, and was buried in a rough 
side-hill graveyard at " Brockway's Ferry," in the Joshua Town quarter, where many of 
his early descendants also repose, but which, long since deserted, is now nearly hidden by 
trees and shrubs. He is said traditionally to have come from " Silver Street, London," 
and, from his computed age, must then have been quite a youth. Has any antiquarian 
reader noticed his name, or any of his name, at an earlier date than that given above on 
any ship-list or other record of ancient New England emigrants ? w. hall.

Cogswell Family. — The Rev. E. O. Jameson, of East Medway, Conn., author of a 
memorial of the Rev. William Cogswell, D.D., editor of the first volume of the "New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register," has now in preparation an octavo volume 
to be entitled "The Cogswells of America." The work will be published during the 
ensuing winter, and will contain portraits of many descendants of John Cogswell, the 
founder of the family, who settled at Ipswich, Mass., in the summer of 1635. J. G. w. 

James Evetts, of New York. — An inquiry was made in The Record, Vol. 10, 
p. 97, respecting this ancient citizen, one of the founders and first vestrymen of Trinity 
Church. Nothing was then known of his antecedents beyond the last decade of the seven- 
teenth century, or where he came from in the old country. Since then, among the old pa-

pers of one of his New Jersey descendants, we have found a quit claim, signed by his two 
sons, James and Nathaniel, living in Dublin, Ireland, which states that their father died 
in 1712-13, intestate, and that he was originally from the parish of St. Botolph, Bishops- 
gate, London. The daughters of James Evetts, so far as known, were (1) Anne, whose 
first husband was Richard Hall, and the second Robert Desmond, both of New York, and 
the Litter once High Sheriff of the city; (2) Abigail, who married Charles Townley, and 
(3) Sarah, who married his brother, Col. Effingham Townley, both of Elizabethtown, N. J. 
When did Evetts first come to New York, and what is the earliest mention of him in the 
city or provincial records ? w. hall. 

Kip Correction. — In my Kip genealogy, Vol. XII., p. 30, of the Genealogical 
and Biographical Record, I have misplaced a date and made Jacob Kip married in 
1657. It was Roeloff, son of Thomas Swartwout who was married at Fort Orange, 
August 13, 1657, to Eva Albertsen (O'Callaghan's "New Netherlands," Vol. II., p. 
437). The " History of Ulster County," lately published, states that Roeloff Swartwout 
was born in Amsterdam in 1634, came to New Netherlands in 1655, and that his children 
were Thomas, Bernardus, Anthony, Hendrica, Cornelia, Rachel, and Eva. G. h.van w.

TlLLEY. — Can any of your readers give me information relative to James Tilley, of 
New Jersey (1750-1S25), or of any of his descendants? James Tilley was son of Wil-

Buttre. — Lillian C, eldest daughter of Mr. J. C. Buttre, the well-known en- 
graver and publisher of portraits, died at her home in Ridgewood, Bergen County, 
N. J., March 30, 1881. She was born in the city of New York, November 24, 1858. 
Just developed into full womanhood, her whole character, rounded and perfect, was a 
rare model of excellence. Left, by the death of her mother, at the head of the bereaved 
household when she was only nineteen years of age, she assumed the delicate and arduous 
duties with alacrity, and performed them with dignity, ability, good judgment, and great 
tenderness, exercising a motherly care over her younger sisters, to whom, through the 
medium of mutual affection, her suggestions and advice became as law. She was an 
"angel in the house" — sunlight in the home, imparting beauty to every object. Always 
forgetful of herself, even in the recreations and pleasures of her childhood, she habitually 
thought only of the comfort and happiness of others, especially of those who were near 
and dear to her. Her kindness of heart, her gentleness of spirit, and her unbounded 
charity toward the weakness of others, endeared her to all who knew her. When she 
assumed the position of head of the household, she had just engaged in a self-imposed 
and arduous literary task, which she lived to complete. It was the preparation of a 
series of biographies of eminent men, two hundred and forty in number, for the 
" American Portrait Gallery," published by her father. This work exhibits a marvel of 
ability, industry, and good judgment. The style of her narrative is chaste and simple. 
The book is a beautiful and enduring monument to her memory B. J. L. 

Fowler. — Rev. Professor William Chauncey Fowler, LL.D., died at his 
residence in Durham, Conn., on Saturday, Jan. 15, 18S1, in his 88th year. He was 
born in that part of Killingworth which now forms the town of Clinton, Conn., Sep- 
tember 1, 1793. He was descended of a markworthy Puritan ancestry. His father, 
Reuben Rose Fowler, was the fifth in descent from Mr. William Fowler, of Milford, 
Conn., who was one of the first three magistrates of the New Haven Colony (1643-53;, 
and who came of the ancient family of Fowler, of Buckinghamshire, which traces its de- 
scent back to the twelfth century. 

Through his mother, Catharine Chauncey, he was descended trom Rev. Charles 
Chauncey, the second President of Harvard College (from 1654 till his death in 1671), 
who traced his lineage to Chauncey de Chauncey (Canci de Canci), one of the Norman 
barons of William the Conqueror, whose descendants by intermarriage with great ba-

ronial houses became allied to the De Warrens, Earls of Surrey, the De Veres, Earls of 
Oxford, the Pembrokes, the Earls of Clare, the Bigods, Earls of Norfolk, the Beau- 
monts, the Albinis, De Rooses, Giffards, Earls of Buckingham, and many other 
famous families of the middle ages, through whom the Chaunceys trace in several lines 
to Charlemagne, and to the royal families of England, France, Denmark, Norway 
Germany, Russia, and to the emperors of Constantinople. 

Of old and well-known New England families, Professor Fowler's pedigree shows 
the names of Haynes, Wyllis, Willis, Dudley, Worthington. Chittenden, Porter, Gal- 
lup, Lake, etc., and includes a rather unusual number of colonial governors, magistrates 
captains, and divines. 

He was graduated with honor at Yale College in 1816, was rector of the Hopkins 
Grammar School one year; tutor in Yale College five years (1819-24) ; pastor of the 
Second Congregational Church in Greenfield, Mass., two years (1826-28); Professor of 
Chemistry, Mineralogy, and Natural History in Middlebury College (1828-38) ; Profes- 
sor of Rhetoric, Oratory, and Belles Lettres in Amherst College (1838-43) ; member of 
the Massachusetts Legislature, 1851 ; candidate for Congress in the Tenth Massachu- 
setts District, 1856, as the nominee of the Whig and Democratic parties ; was a mem- 
ber of the Connecticut Senate, 1864. 

He was the author of the " English Language in its Elements and Forms" (Harper & 
Bros , 1S50), a learned and elaborate work, which has had an extensive sale and has re- 
ceived high commendations in this country and abroad ; several abridgements of the 
same; " Chauncey Memorials " (1856); " The Sectional Controversy " (Scribner& Co., 
1863); "Local Law" (1872); "Essays," (1874); "Centennial Papers," (1876) ; and a 
large number of other essays on a great variety of subjects. 

Professor Fowler was a widely accomplished scholar ; his mind was discursive and yet 
logical, and he was a master of style. His manners were courtly, representing the old 
school. He had a fine presence and oratorical powers, and had he made a specialty of 
politics, had talents and learning sufficient to fill any position ; but from politics he 
"turned to calm philosophy aside." In 1851 he declined an important diplomatic posi- 
tion tendered him by Daniel Webster, and sought amid the treasures of his ample library 
a happiness which the strifes and josthngs of public life fail to bestow. He enjoyed the 
personal friendship of the Washington family, the Lees of Virginia, of Daniel Webster, 
John C. Calhoun, and scores of other eminent men now passed away. After & brief ill- 
ness, he died at the Chauncey homestead with great calmness, preserving his faculties to 
the last. He married, June 26, 1825, Harriet, daughter of Noah Webster, the lexicog- 
rapher, and widow of Edward H. Cobb, of Portland, Me., by whom he had four chil- 
dren, of whom two only survived him — a son, ex-Senafor William W. Fowler, of Dur- 
ham, Conn. , and a daughter, Mrs. Emily Ellsworth Ford, wife of Mr. Gordon L. Ford, 
of Brooklyn. w. w. F. 

Gibbs. — Captain James Freeman Gibbs, who died at his residence in the city of 
Brooklyn, L. I., on Tuesday, February 23, 1881, was buried on the following Friday, by 
the side of his father, Captain Ronald Gibbs, in the family cemetery at Sandwich, Mass., 
where many generations of his paternal and maternal ancestors, the Freemans, are 
interred. His funeral took place at his mother's residence at Sandwich, and was attended 
by a large circle of friends and relations from New York, Boston, and elsewhere. 

Thomas Gibbs, the earliest American ancestor of Captain Gibbs, came from England 
and settled at Sandwich in 1635. his descendants still being residents of that place. His 
maternal ancestor was Edward Freeman, the principal proprietor of Sandwich when it 
was first settled, having also come from England, where he was born in the year 1590, 
on board the ship Abigail (next after the Mayflower and Fortune), bringing two sons 
with him, both of whom married daughters of Governor Thomas Prince. 

Captain Gibbs was born at Sandwjich in the year 1844, and very early in life dis- 
played an unconquerable passion for the sea. During the late war he distinguished him- 
self on many occasions while serving with Admiral Farragut. When the General Lyons 
was lost off the coast of North Carolina, and he was the last officer on board the steamer, 
he swam a long distance, and alone turned over one of the ship's boats that had capsized, 
returned in her, and succeeded in saving sixteen sailors and passengers, and getting safely 
to shore. After the close of the war, he entered the service of the Old Dominion Line, 
and successfully commanded the steamers Albemarle, Isaac Bell, and Breakwater. Cap- 
tain Gibbs, who was one of the most popular officers sailing from this city, was a superb 
specimen of manly beauty, and a person of prodigious strength. In protecting a boat 
intended for the women and children on board the Lyons, he knocked down nine niuti- 

148 Obituary. [July, 1881. 

nous sailors and soldiers who were attempting to gain possession of her before they suc- 
ceeded by a rush in pushing him overboard. 

Captain Gibbs was an occasional contributor of verse to the Evening Post, of which 
William Cullen Bryant thought highly. He left a wife and daughter, who, with other 
relatives, accompanied his remains to be interred, in accordance with his wishes, by the 
side of his father's grave in his native place. J. G. w. 

Osgood. — Samuel Osgood, D.D., died at his residence in this city, April 14, 1880. 
He was born in Charleston, Mass., August 30, 1812. It is comparatively difficult to 
sketch the life and labors of such a writer and speaker. He was commissioned in New 
England and from Harvard to proclaim and spread the cultivation of views which had 
been pressed into service by able men in a kind of hot-bed there ; a cultivation, all the 
more necessary in a cold climate. He appeared as an editor of the Western Messenger, 
at Louisville, Ky., in 1836 and 1837. He was next speaking from the pulpit at Nashua, 
N. II., and publishing at Boston, in 1S39, a translation of "The History of the Passion ; " 
and then preaching at Providence, R. I., in 1841 and 1842; he translated and published, 
in 1S42, an essay on " Human Life, or Practical Duties," 2 vols. i2mo. After these 
discursions he succeeded Dr. Dewey, in 1849, in the Church of the Messiah in this city, where 
he officiated about twenty years. He was an editor of the Christian Enquirer in New 
York, from 1850 to 1854; and afterward contributed to the Christian Examiner, the 
North American Review, the Bibliotheca Sacra, and other magazines, including Putnam's 
and Harpers' 1 ; and he published sermons, speeches, and orations, and was active in 
literary and historical pursuits. The more permanent publications in his name appeared 
in 1851 as " Studies in Christian Biography," 1850, 1854, and 1856; "The Hearth- 
stone, or Thoughts upon Human Life in our Cities," and " God with Men," 1855 ; " Mile- 
stones on our Life Journey," i860; " Student Life," and "American Leaves." In 1856 
he edited " The Holy Gospels," illustrated by Overbech, 4to., and has since written 
articles and edited other works, with his name " in umbra.''' 1 He published memorials of 
Bryant, Crawford, Duyckinck, and others, and orations on different topics and criticisms. 
In 1870 he took orders in the Protestant Episcopal Church, and has often filled the 
pulpit in churches of that persuasion \ losing, however, some of the partisan attach- 
ment and favor of one sect as he slowly gained that of another. His life may fairly be a 
study upon the question how far it is expedient for a teacher to profess, proclaim, and 
advance particular opinions not in accord with the multitude — such, perhaps, as all learned 
men must have — instead of pressing the truths which have no antagonists, but will crowd 
out error, " all appearance of argument and controversy being carefully avoided." New- 
ton's mathematics were much more successfully introduced through Cambridge College 
than were the discoveries of travel by Mandeville, or spectacles by Roger Bacon, or of the 
telescope by Galileo. Are the sufferings of martyrdom for " seed," or the hot-bed culture 
of sects really so necessary as they have seemed ? Cannot we permit such narrow- 
minded and short-sighted mortals as we all are, to differ in opinion, and consequently in 
prejudice and passion, without invoking warfare on theoretical questions which none can 
authoritatively decide? Or without calling in the sword, or setting up some one — the 
politician — perhaps no better than others, to decide arbitrarily, and stop all description 
and all enlightenment ? At any rate, we may unite in common topics and common in- 
terests, despite the blinded partisan. 

Dr. Osgood received the degree of D. D., in 1857, from Harvard, and was strongly 
attached to learning, including historical studies. He long attended the New York His- 
torical Society, often spoke before it, and for several years was its Corresponding Secretary. 
A committee of that society has done its duty in presenting a semi-official record of his 
life, which has been published in Vol. V. of the Magazine of American History. The 
wide circulation of this magazine relieves us of apparent inattention. It fails to notice, 
however, the anniversary address before our society on •• Life and its Record in this 
Generation," published in Vol. IX. of our Record, p. 97. Commending to our 
readers a reperusal of this, and of some of his other publications, we have performed 
what appears to us our duty. M. 

Bergen.— On the 24th of April last, Hon. Teunis G. Bergen died of pneumonia at 
his home at Bay Ridge, New Utrecht, L. I. This sudden and unexpected event casts a 
gloom over a wide circle of relatives and friends, and has taken from the Record's 
list of collaborators a staunch and reliable support. With hearts saddened and zeal some- 
what weakened, but courage undaunted, we make this sad announcement. We have only 
room to state here that in our October issue will appear a biographical sketch of this our 
long-tried and warm friend and co-worker in the field of family history. p.

Vol. XII. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1881. No. 4 


(With a' Portrait.) 

'By Samuel S. Purple, M.D. 

Hon. Teunis G. Bergen, whose contributions to family history, 
through the pages of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record and elsewhere, have rendered his name familiar to its readers, and 
who was a corresponding member of this Society, died of pneumonia, at his 
residence, at Bay Ridge, New Utrecht, L. L, April 24, 1881. He was born 
in the town of New Utrecht, on the 6th of October, 1806, and was the 
eldest child of Garret Bergen and Jane Wyckoff, his wife. His early youth 
was mainly spent between work on his father's farm at Gowanus, and at 
the common school of the district. As youth merged into manhood, he 
applied himself to the study and practice of surveying, and soon became 
proficient in that important profession. It was, doubtless, through the 
information he obtained in the discharge of the duties of a surveyor, in 
his native town, that he acquired that careful and thorough knowledge 
requisite to the right understanding of the ancient Dutch Records and 
Land Titles, and which made him so familiar with all that appertained to 
the legal and social history of the earliest settlers of ancient Meryckawick, 
or Breuckelen, and their descendants. To the main duties of an active 
life he added those of a farmer, and not forgetting those he owed to the 
community in which he resided, he faithfully discharged such as were im- 
posed upon him by the choice of his fellow-citizens, as soldier, civilian, 
and statesman. He held the offices of Ensign, Captain, Adjutant, Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel in the militia, and finally that of Colonel of the 241st regi- 
ment. He held the office and performed the duties of Supervisor of the 
town of New Utrecht for twenty-three years in succession, or from April, 
1836, to April, 1859, and from 1842 to 1846 was Chairman of the Board. 
He was a member of the Constitutional Conventions of the State in 1846 
and 1867 and 1868, and repeatedly a member of Democratic State Con-

ventions. He was a delegate to the National Democratic Convention, 
held at Charleston, S. C, in i860, and opposed the adoption of the resolu- 
tions of that body which caused the breach between the Northern and 
Southern Democratic party. 

The last and most notable public office which he held by the choice of 
his fellow-citizens was that of Representative in Congress from the Second 
Congressional District of this State. In 1864 he was elected a member 
of the House of Representatives over his opponent the " Union candidate," 
by a majority of 4,800. In that body his party was in a small minority, 
but true to Dutch principles, inherited on all sides through such an ances- 
try, he stood firm to lus party up to the completion of his term of service. 
This office was the last which he held, and on retirement from public and 
professional duties, he devoted his leisure hours to the entertaining and 
praiseworthy work, which crowning events prove was the enchanting dream 
of his life. Long before he entered upon his last public duties, he had 
become an expert in all that related to the history of the Dutch and their 
descendants on Long Island. For he had, on repeated occasions, ren- 
dered important aid to many writers engaged in historical work, and had 
left frequent exhibitions of his scholarly and accurate attainments, in the 
departments of local and family history. 

His inquiries into the history of the first settlers of Long Island, and 
their customs and official laws, as handed down in the city and church 
records, have been both numerous and important. All who have had 
occasion to examine the Manuals of the Common Council of Brooklyn, 
which have been published, have found there recorded many of his exact 
and useful papers. His untiring and self-sacrificing researches into the 
almost obsolete records of the ancient Dutch churches of Long Island 
and New York have unearthed numerous and important materials for the 
use of modern historians, while his discovery in out of the way places of 
many of the detached birth, baptismal, and marriage records, and the 
restoration of the same, has conferred inestimable benefits upon the gene- 
alogist and antiquary. He was one of a small, and rapidly passing away 
number who spoke the Dutch language fluently, and was competent (ac- 
cording to the statement of one who is good authority and knew him well) 
to decipher the ancient Dutch records accurately. 

His published writings have been numerous and important. The earliest 
in distinctive form were contributed to the local newspapers in his vicinity, 
but those which will be most sought after, and will continue so to be, and will 
prove most useful to genealogical inquirers, are to be found in the volumes 
of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. The first 
to its pages may be found in vol. 4, p. 39, being entitled, " Records of the 
Births of the Society of Friends at Gravesend, L. Z," commencing in 1665 ; 
then follow on page 150 The Van Dyke Family ; and on page 199, the 
"Marriage Records, Gravesend, L. /.," commencing in 1664 ; vol. 5, p. 
68, contains A List of Deaths in Capt. Grant's Company in 1762 ; vol. 7,- 
p. 152, " The Monfoort Family ;" p. 174, " Prisoners of the Revolutionary 
War;" vol. 8, p. 62, " The Martense Family ; " vol. 9, p. 126, "Contri- 
butions to the History of the Early Settlers of Kings County, N. K," being 
the Brouwer Family ; vol. 10, p. 85, a second contribution being " Memo- 
rials of Francoys jD'Bruynue ;" and page 155, a third contribution 
being "The Van Duyn Family." These contributions comprise portions 
of a large work on which he had been for a long time occupied, and pre-

paring for the press, entitled a " Register of the Early Settlers and Free- 
holders of Kings County, N. Y., from its First Settlement by Europeans, to 
1700, with Biographical Notices and Family Genealogies^ To him are 
our subscribers indebted for the preparation of the Index to Names in 
volumes ten and eleven of the Record, and this Society for gratuitous 
labor in comparing and correcting the copy of the Reformed Dutch Church 
Records, which has been made at the sole expense of one of our most 
worthy members. He also made frequent contributions to the department 
of Notes and Queries of the Record. In 1866 appeared the first edition 
of his history of " The Bergen Family" an octavo of 298 pages, and 
shortly after 4 pages of additions and corrections to the work; in 1867 
his account of his wife's ancestry, entitled the " Genealogy of the Van 
Brunt Family, 1653-1867," an octavo of 80 pages. But the crowning 
labor of his well-spent life, so far as family history is concerned, was a 
greatly improved and augmented edition of the work noticed in vol. 7, p. 
95 of the Record, entitled, "The Bergen Family ; or, The Descendants 
of Hans Hansen Bergen, One of the Early Settlers of New York 
and Brooklyn, L. I., with Notes on the Genealogy of Some of the 
Branches of the Cowenhoven, Voorhees, Eldert, Stoothoof, Cor- 
telyou, Stryker, Suydam, Lott, Wyckoff, Barkeloo, Lefferts, Mar- 
tense, Hubbard, Van Brunt, Vanderbilt, Vanderveer, Van Nuyse, 
and other LongIsland Families." This important work was printed 
and published in 1876 by the veteran genealogical printer, the late Joel 
Munsell, of Albany, who was a life member of this Society, and is com- 
prised in a handsome octavo volume of 658 pages. In 1878 appeared 
his " Genealogy of the Lefferts Family, 1650-1878," an octavo of 172 
pages. This, too, was printed and published by the late Joel Munsell. 
In 1877, at the celebration of the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the 
Reformed Dutch Church of New Utrecht, L. I., he delivered an "Ad- 
dress on the Annals of New Utrecht," abounding in historical interest. 
This address was published with the Proceedings of the Celebration, 
for private circulation, under the Direction of the Consistory in 1877. 
But it must not be supposed that the foregoing comprises all of his liter- 
ary labors. He left in manuscript (beside the work which we have noticed) 
— the "Register of the Early Settlers,'" which was being printed at the 
time of his death — "A History of New Utrecht, L. I.;" and also transla- 
tions of several important manuscripts relating to the early Settlement of 
what is now Kings County. 

Mr. Bergen was a man of simple habits and few wants. In the lan- 
guage of one who knew him intimately,* "he adhered always to plain, 
honest lines of activity, caring in no degree whatever for upstart distinc- 
tions, proud of the fact that he was a farmer, bearing upon his body the 
evidence that by the sweat of his brow and the labor of his hands he 
earned the right to a comfortable footing in the world, his chief pride was 
that his neighbors had unqualified confidence in his integrity. He was a 
power in his rural district, because his neighbours could say of him with 
certainty as Burns declared of Gavin Hamilton : 

What ance he says he winna break it, 
What's no his ain he winna take it. 

Because of this trust in him he came to be frequently called upon by them

to do public service." In point of culture and interest in matters of his- 
tory, he exhibited a disposition worthy of the warmest admiration. As be- 
fore stated, he spoke the Dutch tongue with fluency and delighted to dilate 
upon its beauties. "As the President of the St. Nicholas Society of 
Nassau, he figured as a sort of literary and social St. Nicholas, vindicating 
the past against the future, and imparting to the material struggles of 
every day a flavor of the pleasant but vanishing traditions of the father- 
land." Personally he was an industrious, staid, and sober citizen, and a 
thorough Dutchman of the old school in all things. He was a regular 
attendant upon the church of his ancestors, and quite liberal in all his 
views, he thought and believed that every man should be allowed to steer 
his own course, so long as he did not prevent his neighbors from exercis- 
ing the same right. 

As a corresponding member, he did honor to the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society ; never for one moment forgetting its aims 
and objects, he contributed liberally his time and writings to further all 
its interests. To conclude, the history of his literary life is one whose 
work has been well performed. The accuracy of his writings in all their 
material import is unquestionable. He died with his buckler girded upon 
him. His last work was upon the Index to names of the present volume 
of the Record. Cut down suddenly, like a sheaf of corn ripe in its 
season, his bereaved widow and children, friends, neighbors, fellow-citizens, 
this society — all will miss him, and who is there that can fill the void thus 
created ? 

From his own writings we have compiled his pedigree, both paternal 
and maternal, and they are herewith presented to the reader. 

Bergen Pedigree. 

Hans Hansen Bergen, the common ancestor of the Bergen family of 
Long Island, New Jersey, and their vicinity, was a native of Bergen, in Nor- 
way, a ship carpenter by trade, and removed from thence to Holland. He 
emigrated to New Amsterdam in 1633. His name appears in the ancient 
land and church records in various forms, as follows : Hans de Boer (farmer), 
Hans Noorman, Hans Hanszen, Hans Hanszen Noorman, Hans Hanszen de 
Noorman, Hans Hanszen Van Bergen in Noorwegan, Hans Hansen, and 
Hans Hansen Bergen. It was not till near the close of the seventeenth or 
the commencement of the eighteenth century that the descendants of Hans 
Hanszen fairly adopted the surname of Bergen. Hans Hansen m. in New 
Amsterdam in 1639 Sara Rapalje, dau. of Jores Jansen Rapalje, incorrectly 
said to have been the first white child of European parentage born in the 
colony of New Netherland. She was, however, probably the first female child 
so born. They had issue, 1, Anneken, bap. July 22, 1640 ; 2, Brecktje,

Gysbertizen Bogaert. 

Michael, or Miggiel Hansen Bergen, bap. November 4, 1646, m. 
Femmetje Theunis, dau. ofTheunis Nyssen, of Gowanus, the ancestor of the 
Denyse family of Kings Co. and New Jersey (this name is spelt variously on 
the colonial and church records, Nysse, Nysen, Niessen, and Denyse).

He held civil office in several years from 1681 to 1689, and in 1686 was 
one of the patentees named in Dongan's patent. He espoused the cause 
of the people in the revolution of 1689, and was a firm supporter of Lieut. - 
Gov. Jacob Leisler, the proto-martyr of American liberty, who was un- 
justly condemned and executed, together with his son-in-law Milborne.

Sir John had, of his sons and g. sons, 18 at the same time in the 
army or navy of Great Britain. Sir John and his eldest son were for 
many years Members of Parliament ; and his grandson, Sir John, was 
afterward representative of Selkirk. Walter entered the British navy and 
received his first commission Jan., 1741, and served on board ships-of- 
war on the coasts of America, Portugal, Spain, France, and Flanders, until 
the spring of 1746; from that time to the winter of 1748, he served in the 
British army as Lieutenant of the Royal Scots, and also as Paymaster in 
Flanders. Holland, France, Germany, and Ireland, until the spring of 
1756, when he served in America and commanded the Grenadiers. On 
the surrender of Montreal the keys were delivered to him. At the reduction 
of Canada by the British forces, under Sir Jeffry Amherst, he held the posi- 
tions of Paymaster of a battalion, Judge-Advocate of the army, and the rank 
of Captain, and subsequently of Major. After the war, at the request of his 
wife, he retired from the army, and resided either at his house in New York, 
or at his country-seat in New Jersey. He was in his 76 th year when his por- 
trait was taken, a copy of which I have, painted by his g. dau., Mrs. Peter 
Augustus Jay. When he was 75 years of age he travelled, without suffer- 
ing from fatigue, eleven hundred miles, either in a chair or on horseback, 
and could read the finest print without the aid of glasses. He was of a 
very cheerful disposition. His manners were affable, his mind well in- 
formed, and his conversation instructive and entertaining. He lived and 
died without enemies. His remains were interred in the Alexander vault, 
Trinity churchyard, attended by the members of the St. Andrew's Society, 
of which he had been President.

1 1.] Introductory Sketch to the History of the Clinton Family. jgr 


By Charles B. Moore. 

The Hon. VV. W. Campbell (a corresponding member of this So- 
ciety) in his Life of De Witt Clinton, culled and reported such exact and 
authentic information, derived from public history, from documents, and 
from the family, as enables the pedigree of the leading American family of 
Clinton to be stated with confidence back to the early part of the seven- 
teenth century. He says, William Clinton was "an adherent to the cause 
of royalty in the civil wars of England, and an officer in the army of Charles 
I." We may suppose him a young man, born about 1620-25. Being of the 
same family as the Earl of Lincoln, that circumstance accounts for his 
trained loyalty. The male heirs of the third and fourth Earls, named Clin- 
ton, finally failed. He was probably descended from a younger son of Henry, 
the second Earl, from whose family the sixth Earl was derived. The names 
Charles and James were in the family, and it possessed lands in Ireland. 
Relatives in England have referred more exactly to his ancestry, but we 
have no copy of his pedigree. 

Theophilus Clinton, the fourth Earl of Lincoln, supported the mon- 
archy and the house of peers, but not the maladministration of Charles 
the First. His father, Thomas,- the third Earl, died in 1619. His family 
adhered to the Presbyterian division. The Countess Elizabeth and her 
daughters, Arabella Johnson and Susannah Humphrey, made noted marks 
in Massachusetts. Theophilus, the fourth Earl, for his support of the king 
and peers, was impeached and arrested by the so-called parliament — with- 
out a king and without a house of peers— in 1647. His estate, derived 
largely from the crown of forfeited lands, was seized, and his ancient cas- 
tle destroyed. It was claimed that it formerly belonged to the Cromwells. 
Deprived of property and of power, he was discharged from the impeach- 
ment in 1649. He lived until the restoration. His son and heir apparent 
died before him. 

"After the death of that monarch (Charles the First) he," William 
Clinton, "went to the Continent, where he remained a long time in exile. 
By report he was in France and Spain." Many loyalists were abroad. 
The grandson of the fourth Earl, who succeeded to the peerage as fifth 
Earl, was educated in France. Others of the family may probably have 
been there. It is reported by another, that William remained " some years 
in exile." "He afterward passed over to Scotland" (says Mr. Camp- 
bell), we suppose to aid the restoration of Charles II., " where he mar- 
ried a lady of the family of Kennedy," connected with the Scotch peerage 
family of Cassilis. .She was doubtless a royalist, but inclined to Presby- 
terianism." " From Scotland" (says Mr. Campbell) "he removed to Ire- 
land, where he died, leaving one son, James." Another writer says, 
"after the defeat of' the royalists he fled to the north of Ireland." A 
family connection writes that he passed over to Ireland "for greater se- 
curity." Mr, Eager, 'the historian of Orange County, (No. 101, p. 628) 

Io6 Introductory Sketch to the History of the Clinton Family. [Oct., 

says " after the battle of Worcester he went to Ireland." That battle was 
in 165 1, after Cromwell's success in Ireland and in Scotland. Many of 
the •English, Scotch, and Irish who at first had supported the parliament 
on that occasion attempted to set up Charles II., but could not master the 
old soldiers. Some were severely punished after the battle, such as Stan- 
ley and Capel, and then there was a general submission of loyalist chiefs 
to Cromwell's rule by martial law, except of those who went abroad. 
Colonel George Mason escaped to America, landed at Norfolk, and was 
the ancestor of the noted Mason family of Virginia. Many others came 
to this country. Colonel Faithful Fortescue, from Ireland, commanded a 
regiment on the King's side, escaped and went abroad; but afterward, 
with others, returned to England. 

Exact particulars and dates are not reported. The date of William 
Clinton's death in Ireland can only be estimated. We may yield him a 
few years there during the pacification of Ireland under Cromwell's depu- 
ties, one of whom was General Edmund Ludlow. The old soldiers of the 
Parliament were allowed land for their services ; those of the king were 
allowed to enlist in France or abroad ; and Royalists deprived of large 
tracts of land were favored by having distributed among them smaller or 
wilder parcels in Ulster and Connaught, to improve the same by cultiva- 
tion, and to prevent starvation. Men treated as having forfeited their 
estates in the southern parts of Ireland, generally Episcopalians or Catho- 
lics, were allowed one-third in estimated value farther north. This class 
perhaps included him. 

Sir William Petty went to Ireland while General Ludlow was in power 
and holding office there. He made a survey and map of Ireland, laying it 
out in ten mile squares. The greatest difficulty was in the elevated re- 
gions, " the highlands." Some of these proved to be of good land. Much 
surveying must have been requisite, and a choice of positions very de- 
sirable. Mo doubt the Royalist family of Clinton before this had valu- 
able land in the southern parts of Ireland. Their coat of arms is found as 
a mark on old maps. We perceive as a distinct fact that James, the son 
of William Clinton, was under age and young at his father's death, and 
probably quite young ; by report he was two years old. He was doubt- 
less trained in his mother's religion. To make an exact trace of him, we 
estimate his birth about 1656-58, during Cromwell's life, and the death 
of William, his father, about 1658-60. 

" This son, James Clinton, on arriving at manhood, made an unsuc- 
cessful effort to recover his patrimonial estates in England." This would 
be about the year 1676-79, in the latter part of the reign of Charles II. 
By the family account his claim was barred by the limitations of an act of 
parliament. Of course, the claim had arisen in his father's lifetime, but 
particulars are lost. " While in England," and, as we suppose, disgusted 
with affairs there, he married a Miss (Elizabeth) Smith, daughter ot a Cap- 
tain Smith, who had been an officer " in the army of Cromwell, and, with 
his wife, returned and settled in Ireland," but precisely where is not 
described. " Her fortune," says Mr. Eager, "enabled him to live respect- 
ably." A descendant, to whose account we have referred, has written his 
name " William Smith," we know not by whose authority, nor is it easy to 
trace such a name. Many of the name have flourished in this country. 
The modern sketch of Rev. Dr. Win. Smith, of the Pennsylvania College, 
professes to trace his ancestry to Scotland from an English source, but 

1 88 1.] Introductory Sketch to the History of the Clinton Family. 107 

doubtfully. The Smiths from Ireland, who settled at the fork of the Dela- 
ware or in Orange County, may be of the same race as Mr. Clinton. 
Probably the captain was of the Presbyterian division, and supported the 
Parliament when Montagu, Earl of Sandwich, and Roberts, Earl of Rad- 
nor did, but afterward supported Charles II. The latter Earl, for a brief 
term, was Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in 1669, and was succeeded, in 
1670, by Baron Berkeley, of Stratton, connected with a prominent Smith 
family. Sir Edward Smith, created a baronet in 1654, made a figure in 
Ireland as a judge, and as a commissioner with Sir Edward Bering and 
others, to settle land titles under a law passed in 1664 or 65. In 1674 
military force was used. " The sons of dispossessed owners levied war 
upon intruders." 

Some of Cromwell's officers, as well as soldiers, were allowed lands in 
Ireland. After the restoration of the Stuarts, their land titles were dis- 
turbed. Under Charles II., Clarendon sought to compromise with 
claimants and pacify them without disturbing the old soldiers, lest he 
should drive them to arm?, but he failed of permanent success. Repeated 
legislative acts did not work smoothly. Under James II., rough efforts to 
displace old supporters of Cromwell, who had improved the" land, were 
resisted. After the success of William of Orange, the titles favored by 
James and his officers were nearly all broken up. The soldiers attempted 
to be rewarded on either side, deprived of homes, and with their families 
in distress, could sympathize with each other, and yet again produce 
soldiers. Ireland became a nursery of soldiers, furnishing many to 
France, and afterward to America. 

A place in Ireland was called Clintonville. Without tracing its exact 
location, we arrive circumstantially~very near to it, and possibly may trace 
James Clinton himself, in early life, in the northern part of Ireland. 

In 1662 a new act of conformity was passed in England, after the resto- 
ration of Charles II., which in part at once, and more decidedly afterward, 
was enforced against nonconformists. Among those silenced, or turned 
out of church position in England, was the Rev. Elias Travers, a non- 
conformist preacher, called a Huguenot waif. He kept a journal, 
which has been recently published (113 Litt. Liv. Age, 76). He had been 
favored in England by the Barnadiston family, of Suffolk Co., that em- 
ployed him as Chaplain. Changes occurred which made him prefer 
Ireland ; his name might be better respected there. His predecessor, the 
Rev. Walter Travers, educated at Cambridge College, ordained at Ant- 
werp, was an advanced nonconformist. He was once associated with 
Richard Hooker, "the judicious," in the Temple, and was afterward Pro- 
vost of the College in Ireland ; the tutor of Usher, well and favorably 
known (1 Killen's Eccl. Hist, of Ireland, 452; 1 Neal, 171). 

In 1678, the Rev. Elias Travers, at London, engaged to take the place 
of Rev. Mr. Howe, as Chaplain for Lord Masserene at Antrim, in the 
north of Ireland. 

When James Clinton, by our estimate, would be about 20 years of age, 
in Sept., 1678, Mr. Travers went to Ireland, after hearing many frightful 
stories of disorder there, and made his way to the northern part. He was 
timid, and he wrote that after passing Dundalk, and after dinner, going 
through "the perilous mountain districts," he was overtaken by, or over- 
took, a young gentleman, " Mr. Clinton, of Clintonville," going in the 
same direction, " a man of influence " (whom he supposed a papist), and 

jog Abstracts of Brookhaven (L. I.) Wills. [Oct., 

had his company on his journey, "and his protection against the barbarous 
banditti," of whom, it seems, young Clinton was not afraid. He engaged 
in interesting converse with him, "till they reached Newry, where, they 
parted." Young Clinton, being acquainted there, commended him to a 
good hostelry. The next day he resumed his journey through the moun- 
tainous district, which he called "infamous for the cruel slaughter of the 
English during the rebellion (meaning, doubtless, the rebellion of 1641) ; 
reached Mahra Lynn, where he dined, and next day Antrim." 

Dundalk and Newry are well known. The latter at the head of Car- 
lingford Bay, then a small village, is now connected with the lake (Lough 
Neagh) by a canal, and is a nourishing place. It is nearly opposite the 
ancient Castle Blaney, on the old road farther west, of which the poet 
Thomas Moore and others have recited the history of 1641. " Clinton- 
ville " we have not found on any map of Ireland, nor in any English Gaz- 
etteer. Modern Irish emigrants give no account of it. The country is 
famous for its repeated assumption and abandonment of names, generally 
derived from the chief proprietor. The battles of William of Orange, 
overthrowing King James II. and his followers, in Ireland, were great 
occasions of change. During his reign and in the reign of Queen Anne, 
many adjustments were attempted. By the family report, Mr. Clinton was 
granted a large estate in the county of Longford in the central part of the 
island, for his military services. 

By the report of another family, James Clinton lived near Belfast in 
the north of Ireland, and had a sister named Margaret, who married John 
Parks. .She had three children, John, Jane, and Barbara, and about the 
year 1700 the whole connection removed to the county of Longford where 
Jane Parks married John Young, and Barbara married John Crawford. A 
grandson, Doctor Young, preserved this account. 

James Clinton lived to full age, and died on January 24, 1 717-18, and 
his wife Elizabeth died on December 5, 1728. The dates were pre- 
served in a family bible by their sou Charles, who had two sisters, named 
Christian and Mary, probably both older than himself, one of whom came 
with him to this country. We must suppose one sister born as early as 
1686 or 1688, and probably earlier and before the battle of the Boyne. 
Charles was born in 1690 in the midst of the war. Where James, his father, 
died, is not stated, but doubtless in Longford County.

2oo Notes and Queries. [Oct., 


Alexander. — Miss Elizabeth Clarkson Jay, the authoress of the valuable article on 
Tames Alexander and his Descendants, in this volume of the RECORD, returns thanks to 
all of our readers who have so kindly sent corrections or additions to her several articles, 
and expresses her desire to receive similar contributions. Her address is 296 Madison 
Avenue, New York City. 

Brodhead. — Mr. Levi W. Brodhead, the proprietor of the Delaware Water Gap 
House and a descendant of Daniel Brodhead, the first of the name who immigrated to this 
country from England about the middle of the seventeenth century, has prepared a very 
elaborate history of the Brodhead family of America, with a view to its future publica- 
tion. He is the author of a volume, which has passed through two editions, entitled 
" The Delaware Water Gap: Its Scenery, Its Traditions, and Early History." 

Carpenter. — (Vol. XII., 99). " L" is in error in supposing Joseph Carpenter of 
Moscheto Cove, to be the Joseph Carpenter of Rehoboth, Mass. The Joseph of Long 
Island was the eldest son of William, of Providence, and his wife was Ann Wickes, 
daughter of Francis Wickes (or, as now spelled, Weeks). This first Joseph had son, 

Joseph second, who also had wife, Anne ; and Joseph second's oldest son was the 

Joseph third, who was bom October 16, 1685, and married Ann Willett. So we have 
three Josephs in regular succession, and each of them have Anns for wives, causing much 
confusion in settling the pedigree correctly. 

The Joseph Carpenter, erroneously stated as "born April 9, 1701," one of the 
Latingtown, Ulster County, settlers, was, I think, the son of Benjamin and Mercy (Coles) 
Carpenter, of Moscheto Cove, L. I. In an old journal of Robert Coles, after giving 
day and date of his own birth and marriage, and of his children's births, he adds : " Jo- 
seph Carpenter, son of Benjamin and Mercy Carpenter, was born September 15, 1705." 
Now Mercy he records as his daughter ; and this, with a correction in the name, con- 
firms what Thompson states ("History of Long Island," vol. I., p. 510, note), that 
Tamar Coles married Nathaniel Carpenter (which is correct), and that Mercy Coles mar- 
ried William Carpenter, which, according to the journal of Robert Coles, should be 

The first "Carpenter" who came to America was undoubtedly Mary Carpenter, a 
sister to the wife of Governor Bradford, of Massachusetts (Alice Caipenter). She never 
married, and died at Plymouth March, 1687, aged ninety-one, as the records say "a 
godly old maid." 

Then came W'illiam Carpenter, of Providence, R. I., 1636; and then William, of 
Weymouth, 1638, who was no doubt the uncle of William, of Providence, all coming 
from Amesbury, Wilts, England. William, of Providence, married Eliza Arnold, a sister 
of Governor Benedict Arnold, and was Deputy, etc., from 1665 to 1679, and died Sep- 
tember 7, 1685. He left a will, in which he says, his " son Joseph, of Oyster Bay, being 
deceased," he gives his portion to his grandson Joseph. 

Can any one tell me who was the Anne , wife of Joseph Carpenter second, of 

Moscheto Cove ? c.

Townsend.— Under date of August 13, 1881, Mr. Cleveland Abbe writes that he 
desires to trace backward the pedigree of that branch of tha Townsend family of West- 
chester County, N. Y., to which belonged the following; 

1. John Townsend, born about 1740; died, 1S1S or 1819, at Townsendville 

N. Y. ; married about 1758 to Jemima Travis. 

2. Thomas Townsend. 

3. Townsend, who married Tompkins. 

4. ■ Townsend, who married Applebee. 

These four were brothers and sisters, and must have lived in the northern portion of 
Westchester County, some at Peekskill, and possibly some at North Salem, before they 
moved away about 1790. Any one who has looked up the genealogies of the Westchester 
Tovvnsends, or has access to town, church, county, or family records relating to them 
will confer a favor by addressing me, as I desire to exhibit their connection with their 
earlier ancestors, who, tradition says, were the Oyster Bay Townsends.

Harlem (City of New York) : Its Origin and Early Annals. Prefaced by 
Home Scenes in the Fatherlands, or Notices of its Founders before Emigration. 
Also Sketches of numerous Families, and the Recovered History of the Land Tiiles. 
With Illustrations and Maps. By James Riker, author of the "Annals of New- 
town," etc. New York : Printed for the Author, 1881. Svo, pp. xiv., 636. 

The town of Harlem embraced not only the fertile flats now called by that name, but 
also the whole of those parts of Manhattan Island lying north of the River-side and Cen- 
tral Parks. The village of Manhattanville, the meadows and hills of Inwood and Kings- 
bridge, and the heights of Fort Washington being all included within the limits of the 
ancient settlement, whose history, from its beginning until the final distribution of its 
lands among the patentees and their descendants, is given by Mr. Riker in this able and 
interesting work. 

In the year 1655, the few persons who had ventured, under grants of land from the 
Dutch Governor, to make their homes at Harlem, were either driven away or cruelly 
murdered by the Indians in a sudden outburst of revengeful fury, and no effort was made 
to rebuild the ruined dwellings, or to plant the deserted fields, until, between the years 
1658 and 1661, a village was projected and finally established, which soon contained at 
least thirty families, of whom one-third only were Hollanders, another third being 
Huguenots, and the remainder German, Danes, and Swedes; the large majority of the 
men being sturdy and intelligent farmers, familiar with persecutions and disappoint- 
ments, and full of the hope of establishing themselves and their children in a state of 
prosperity in the new world. A preacher was secured, and a court of justice instituted. 
By degrees new land was put under cultivation, many new families arrived, and the Harlem 
people became a well-to-do and happy community. 

The subjects of which Mr. Riker treats may be classed under four heads : 

Under the first, interesting accounts are given of the early settlers in their old country 
homes. Those homes are described, the persecutions and sufferings of the people related, 
and the causes given which led to the voluntary exile of so many persons, of such varied 
nationalities, to the shores of New Netherlands. One hundred and twenty pages are 
devoted to these matters, and no one who reads the narrative will regret the space it 

Under the second head is included the history of the town, the struggles of the colo- 
nists with adversity, their steady growth as a community, and their final triumph over all 
obstacles. By far the largest part of the volume is devoted to this history. 

Genealogical notices of the patentees, their heirs and successors, are given in the third 
division. Here we may trace the beginnings of the well known families of De Forest, 
Delamater, Dissosway, Devaux, Vervelin, Vermerele, Vermilye, De la Montague, and 
many others. Then there are the Cartarets, Delavals, Congreves, and other Englishmen 
of note, men of affairs, who became heavy landholders in the new town, but left no male 
descendants in this country to perpetuate their names. Then appear, in solid phalanx,

the Bensons, Bussings, Dyckmans, Myers, Waldrons, Sickels, Molenaers, Kortrights, 
etc., who have been identified with the place from its first settlement to the present time. 
To our mind, the most valuable portion of the work is the history of the land titles, 
which constitutes its fourth and concluding division. The facts here given have long 
eluded the patient search of both lawyers and antiquarians. Heretofore, except in a few 
isolated cases, no records could be discovered, no traces found of deeds or other instru- 
ments by which the people became possessed in severalty of their farms and wood-lots. 
This history may well be considered a complete and final answer to all inquiries, as it 
shows the origin of the title to nearly every farm in what is now the Twelfth Ward of the 
City of New York. The book is illustrated with several woodcuts, and there are also two 
excellent maps, compiled by the author, one of the village and garden plots and the other 
of the farms and wood-lots. The maps alone are, in our judgment, worth what is charged 
for the book, which is a most valuable and timely contribution to the history of our 
metropolis. J. O. b. 

Peirce Genealogy. Being the Record of the Posterity of John Pers, an Early Inhabit- 
ant of Watertown, in New England, who came from Norwich, Norfolk County, 
England. With Notes on the History of Other Families of Peirce, Pierce,

This work is the successful result of the author's six years' patient labor. In his pre- 
face, he says ; " When I first began the work, my father was unable to give me the name 
of lfis grandfather, and he knew nothing of his relatives back of his father, paternally or 
maternally." Under this disadvantage of all clues, Mr. Pearce has, by diligent research 
and extensive correspondence, faithfully traced and produced a formidable history and 
pedigree of the descendants of John Pers, or Perse, his immigrant ancestor, who came 
to New England in 1637. The work is arranged on the model approved by the New 
England Historic-Genealogical Society as to notation, so that any member of the family 
can readily trace his lineage back to the first immigrant. It is accompanied with no less 
than twenty portraits of individuals of the family, including those of United States Sena- 
tor Hoar and the late Governor Andrew. 

The volume also includes genealogies of the families of Daniel Peirce, of Watertown 
and Newbury, 1634, and of Robert Peirce, of Dorchester, 1630. Complete Indexes to 
all the genealogies are added. Copies of the work may be had of the author, Rockford, 
111., price $4.25.. 

The Baldwin Genealogy, from 1500 to 1881. By Charles Candee Baldwin, 
M. A. Cleveland, Ohio, 1881. 8vo, pp. 974. With eight Portraits. 

This carefully pepared, well printed, and comely volume, is from the pen of the cor- 
responding Secretary of the Historical Society of Cleveland, O. It opens with a short 
but well digested account of the origin of the surname Baldwin, and then treats of the 
earliest English lines, commencing with Richard Baldwin, of County Bucks, England. 
Then follows an account of John (who was a brother of Richard and was of the same 
county) and his descendants. The author's description of his visit, in 1870, to Dundridge, 
Buckinghamshire, England, the original seat of the Baldwins, is both entertaining and 
instructive. Under the general division of the immigrants and their descendants, the 
anthor traces the history of Richard, of Miltord, Conn., John, of Stonington, Conn., 
John, of Norwich, Conn., John, of Milford, Conn., Timothy, of Mil ford, Conn., Na- 
thaniel, of Milford, Conn., Joseph, of Milford, Conn., Henry, of Woodbum, Mass., 
John, of Billenca, Mass., Francis, of Chester County, Penn., John, of Chester County, 
Penn. , Thomas, of Chester County, Penn., William, of Bucks County, Penn., Wil- 
liam, of Hartford, Conn., miscellaneous families residing in Connecticut, Kentucky, 
Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and Virginia, and 
also late families from England and Ireland. 

In an Appendix, the author gives a short history of the following families : Bruen, 
Hall, and Prentiss. The work is furnished with a well prepared Index, 1st, of names 
of those who have intermanied with Baldwins ; 2d, of Baldwins. Four pages of correc- 
tions and additions closes the volume. We commend it to the attention of all bearing 
or interested in the name of Baldwin, and to all others as a model family history. P.
