Watson, William Mitchell Godwin, son of Rev. Daniel and Elizabeth 
(Davis) Godwin, of Mil ford, Del. He was a brother of Mr. D. C. 
Godwin, of Milford, and of Samuel P. Godwin, of Hood, Bonbright & 
Co., Philad a . He was b. 1804 ; d. Feb. 2, 1867, aet 63. He was 

educated for the law, at the Law School, Litchfield, Conn., but he 
disliked the law and entered into the grain trade. He became one of 
the pioneers of the grain trade in Philad 3 , and one of the founders of the 
Corn Exchange of that city. "He was originally of the firm of Brown 
& Godwin, a firm that by enlightened and systematic exertions brought 
millions of bushels of cereals to the market of Phila., that otherwise 
would have sought another place." He was for several years Chief 
Auditor of the Phila. Post Office, holding that office at the time of his 
death. He was a natural mathematician. He was literally the lightning 
calculator of the P. O. Department. 

Mr. Godwin's father was a local Methodist preacher. He served as 
Captain of the Governor's Guard at the bombardment of Lewes, Del. He

Eve, Apl. 22, 1878, dau of Matthew and Lydia (Brehaut) Van Duzen, 
of Kensington, Pa.* 

He was 16 years old when his father was lost at sea. He was first 
mate of the "Nancy and Katy," and carried her safely into the harbor of 
St. Barts, Dec. 15, 1812. In 1819 he was recorded in the Phila. direc- 
tory as Paul O., shipmaster, residence 41 Almond St. In 1820 as sea 
captain, living on Beach St. near Hanover. In 1829 Paul A., sea captain, 
92 Dilwyn St. In 1825 and 1829 a "William Oliver, sea captain," lived 
at 42 Almond St. whom I cannnot identify. In 1845 removed to Ft. 
Hamilton, N. Y. Capt. O. was commissioned master in the U. S. Navy, 
Apl. 15, 1 81 4, having served in the navy, especially in the battle of Lake 

* Matthew Van Duzen or Van Dusen, as now written, was probably descended 
from Abraham Van Dusen, of Albany, N. Y., 1750, who had Milgert, Matthew, Jacob, 
and Pieter. But the connexion needs proof. Matthew Van Duzen was a shipbuilder, 
who came to Philadelphia, and in 1795, purchased the old Fairman property at Ken- 
sington. This place known as the " Fairman mansion " was a notable locality. The 
house was built by Thomas Fairman about 1782. Here William Penn lived with 
Fairman until the Letitia House was finished; and here with him also lived Markham, 
Haige, Howe and his children. At this house stood the famous "Treaty Tree," 
under which William Penn made his treaty with the Indians May, 1682. Fairman 
moved to Tacony, 1682, but his widow appears to have occupied the house in 17.II. 
Watson in his "■Annals of Philadelphia" I. 134-146, gives a history of the house 
and the treaty, with an illustration of the residence and the elm. The latter was- 
blown down in 1S10, and the house, which was of brick, was removed 1S25. But no 
one has given any account of the property since 1711. When it passed from the 
Fairman family does not appear. It was sold by Joseph Lynn to Thomas Hopkins 
1765, and by Hopkins, through sheriffs sale (Shff Ash) to Joseph Ball, the wealthy 
mcht of Phila., 1790. His widow, Sarah (Richards) Ball, sold it to Wm. Yard, ship- 
wright, I795> who sold it the same year to Matthew Van Duzen for ^385, there being 
at the time a mortgage of $2,666.66 upon it. Van Duzen sold it, it is believed, 
to Manuel Eyre, of Phila. Mr. Van D's family occupied the house from 1800 to 1825. 

Miss Tiers, in Martin's History of Chester Co. says, p. 53, " The ground on 
which the Treaty Elm of Penn stood belonged to Mr. Matthew Van Dusen at the 
time the tree was blown down, Mch 1, 1810. My uncle, Mr. Franklin Eyre, owned 
the property immediately adjoining, and to him .Mr. Van Dusen made the proposition 
that if he would have the entire trunk sawed into planks, he might have half the wood. 
This Mr. Eyre gladly acceded to, and afterward he received permission to possess 
himself of the root. This root is in the Museum of the Young Men's Moravian Mis- 
sionary Soc, Bethlehem, Pa."] 

Matthew Van Duzen was Rt. Rev.Wm.White,D.D., in Christ Ch. Phila, Dec. 
24, 1783, to Lydia Brehaut, dau of Nicholas Brehaut, of Phila., a Huguenot from 
Guernsey, Isles of Jersey, who had been m. ii by Bishop White, Aug. 16th, 1773, to 
Elizabeth Bonfield. His 2d dau Mary, was m. by Bishop White, Sept. 4, 1788, to

' " In 1844 he engaged in the coal trade with Robert Walton & Co. In 1S52 he 
became Superintendent of the Black Diamond Mines, Wilkesbarre, Pa. In 1855 ne 
opened an office in the old " Evening Post " building, N. Y. City, under the firm of 
S. Bonnell & Co., the Phila. firm being Van Dusen, Norton & Co. In i860 he 
removed to Trinity Building, continuing there until 1876 engaged in the sale of 
anthracite coal on commission. This office was the Mecca of nearly every operator 
in the Wyoming and Lehigh regions, and the vast tonnages handled were the pride of 
the office force and the envy of other dealers. The immense profits yielded from the 
large business transacted were swept away simply from his generosity to friends. He 
was a Director, Nat. Fire and Marine Ins. Co., Elizabeth City, N. J. ; Vice-Prest. 
Dime Savings Bank, Member of the Board of Education, and was one time Repub- 
lican candidate for Mayor. He was well-known in connection with several charitable 
institutions, and was a communicant and vestryman of St. John's Church, Eliz b - City. 
A few years before his death he retired from the coal trade, of which he had been 
the highest individual operator in N. Y. City. His private character was of the 
highest type. Had he been less generous he would have died a millionaire."

In 1870 Gen. O. established powder mills near Wilkesbarre, Pa., 
where he has since been engaged in the manufacture of explosives, using 
for that purpose machinery of his own invention, consisting principally of 
devices by which powder can be made in small quantities at any time and 
in any place, thus doing away with the danger of a violent explosion, and 
reducing the risk to a minimum. Gen. O. 's improvements include prin- 
cipally an,incorporating mill, consisting of a succession of rollers set in 
pairs through which the powder is made to pass in very small quantities 
at a time, and a new mode of pressing and graining. He has als'i 
invented a bayonet fastening and a screw-headed key, which last he uses

Brown, of Sussex, Del. This Levi witnessed a deed to Joseph O. from 
Levin Crapper, Apl. 17, 1773. He was married before June, 1768, as 
June 23, 1768, John Brown, of Kent Co., gave bond to Israel Brown in £60 
"for one-half of the right of the said John B. in the home place where 
Rachel Pinyard, Israel Brown, and Levi Oliver now live." This- bond 
was proved by the affirmation of Levi Oliver, 1770. John Brown gives, 
same date, a like bond to Levi Oliver and Jean, his wife, for the other 
half of his right. 

Levi Oliver and Jenny Oliver, July 12, 1797, for the love they bear 
to him, deed to' their son, Benjamin Oliver, 25 acres of the 50 acres on 
which they dwelt, and 25 acres, the balance, to their son, Reuben Oliver, 
"being the land they bought of John Brown, late of Sussex, and father 
of Jenny, who bought it of John Bowman, and lying on Mispillion Creek, 
said Jenny being one of seven children " (Bk. W, No. 21, p. 252-3). 
Levi O. made his will dat. July 12, 1797, and proved Nov. 20, 1797 
(Bk. E, p. 139). He devises all his real and personal estate for life to 
his wife Jenny ; when she dies yo, the land and house on the Mispillion 

8 The Oliver Family of Nw York, Delaware and Penn. [Jan., 

Creek, which house his son-in-law, Elijah Reed, had built, to his son 
Benjamin for life, and then to his grandson Aaron, son of Benj". To his 
son Reuben the other half at the death of his mother, and I feather bed 
and furniture. To his daughter Anna, wife of Parker Morgan, i set of 
blacksmith tools, i feather bed and furniture. To daughter Mary, wife 
of Nathaniel Bowman, and Juniata, wife of Elijah Reed, the rest of his 
estate at his wife's death. He made his wife, Jenny, executrix. Her will, 
dat d . Mch. 17, 1805, when "sick and weak in body," and probated April 
9, 1805 (Bk. E, 187), shows that she died Mch. or April, 1805. She 
names son Reuben, and daughters Mary, wife of Nathaniel Bowman, 
Annie Morgan, and " Jnnietty Reed," and adds : "It is my will that my 
son Reuben shall have all my right of my deceased brother Wm. Brown's 
land, and y 2 all that sum now at law with John Truitt for, and the other % 
to my three daughters, &c. Nathaniel Bowman, executor. Evidently Ben- 
jamin was dead in 1805, or he \v d be named in this will. Her descendants 
claim that this land had been sold by Levi's creditors for his debts, and, 
being Jenny's own property, she refused to sign the deed. It is their pur- 
pose to sue Gov. Ross, the present holder for it. He values it at $90,000. 
Joshua B. O. says Levi was a "whitesmith," that is, "one who does 
finishing work upon iron, in distinction from one who forges iron " (Wor- 
cester) ; thus the progenitor of the skilled machinist was a " whitesmith." 
It appears that this Levi was the contemporary of Joseph & Reuben O., 
and not the son of Reuben. He may have been their brother — as Levi 
had a son Reuben — and Reuben had a son Levi ! Joshua B. Oliver claims 
descent from Evan Oliver, 1682, and the three families of Jos. Reuben & 
Levi have always claimed to be " blood cousins.''' *

Elizabeth Oliver, "widow," of Sussex, Dec. 9, 1784, deeded 7 acres 
in Lewistown to Peter Harmanson, of Lewes (N 10, no), may be widow 
of Benjamin, p. 8. 

Aaron Oliver, of Sussex, " yeoman," bought Nov. 6, 1734, of Dorman 
Lofland, 150 acres on S. side Cedar Creek for £50 (G 7, 82). He deeded 
May 4, 1743, to David Peterkin, 100 acres for £50 (H 29, 36) ; and 
bought Aug. 7, 1759, °f Sarah Hudson, administratrix, 106 acres (I 7,

recorded Will Bk. E, p. 23, dat d . Jan. 29, 1795, proved Mch. 3, 1795, 
names him as "Aaron Oliver of Cedar Creek Hundred, Sussex Co.," 
names wife Abigail, to whom he gives all his R. & P. E. for life, or until 
married. And when she is married or dead it was to be divided equally 
among his 4 daughters. 

i. Esther Bennett. 

ii. Abigail Hayes — possibly wife of Tho s . 

iii. Elizabeth Morris. 

iv. Sarah Lofland — possibly wife of Dorman. 

I am inclined to think this Aaron the father of Levi. His daughters 
were all married in 1795, an ^ ne may nil have named his son Levi because 
he had received all that was intended for him before the death of Aaro 1. 
Then Levi's grandson was named Aaron. 

Additions to the above pedigree are greatly desired — especially in the 
line of ancestors.

12 Francis Marschalck Kip, D.D. [Jan., 


The first mention of the name of Kip, in the annals of the city of New- 
York, was in 1635, when Hendrick De-Kuype came to America as a mem- 
ber of the company of Foreign" Countries, for the purpose of exploring a 
North-East passage to the Indies. He was a son of Ruloff De-Kuype, of 
Amsterdam, Holland, and grandson of a nobleman also named Ruloff 
De-Kuype of the dukedom of Lorraine, who fell while fighting valiantly 
for Francis II., duke of Guise, and at the battle of Jarnac in 1569, and 
whose altar-tomb may still be seen in that church until this day. 

Mr. De-Kuype remained but a short time in New York, but his sons 
settled here. All became rich landed proprietors and very influential 
men. The eldest, Hendrick, obtained from government, the tract of land 
known as Kip's Bay farm ; erected a stone mansion, which for two centu- 
ries was the family home, and the seat of great hospitality. He was sec- 
retary of the council of the colony and also alderman for many years. 

To his brother Isaac was granted a large farm, which extended from 
Nassau Street, which was called Kip Street and is so laid down in the maps 
of the time, to the City Hall Park, which was included in the limits of the 
estate. These two brothers were two of the twenty great citizens who alone 
were eligible to public offices ; Says Col. Wm. Stone, " These twenty 
names composed the aristocracy of New York in 166 

A son of Isaac, Jacobus married the widow of Hon. Gulian Verplanck. 
In 1685 a tract of 85000 acres including Fishkill and East Fishkill was 
conveyed to Francis Rombout, Stephen Van Cortlandt and Jacobus Kip 
by letters patent from King James II. This land was purchased from 
the Wappinger Indians. In 1688 the same king issued a royal patent to 
this Jacobus LVdvuype and his brother Hendrick for a tract of land on the 
east side of the Hudson four miles along the river, and several miles inland 
where Rhinebeck now stands, purchased from the Esopus Indians, the 
name was now Anglicised from De-Kuype to Kip, and the family were the 
richest landed proprietors in the State. The Esopus tract or patent was 
called the manor of Kipsburgh. The grandson of Jacobus Kip. Leon- 
ard Lewis Kip, born in 1725, married Elizabeth daughter ol Francis 
Marschalck Esq. April 11 th 1763. On account of his warm adherence 
to the crown and king during the revolution he was obliged to leave the 
city for a time, and the greater portion of his large estates were confiscated. 
Isaac L. Kip his son was born April, 1767. After the return of the 
family to the city of New York he studied law under the Hon. Brock hoist 
Livingston, who early admitted him into partnership. When Mr. Liv- 
ingston was appointed one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of the 
United States, his brother, Hon. Robert R. Livingston, first Chancellor of 
the State of New York, appointed Mr. Kip the Assistant Register of the 
Court of Chancery. He held that office, then Register and afterward 
Vice-Chancellor under Chancellors Livingston, Lansing and Kent. He was 
also notary public of the Merchants' Bank of the City of New York, for 
many years. In 1822 he resigned all professional business, devoting his 
time from thenceforth entirely to religious and church duties. From 1817 
to the day of his death he was the treasurer of the corporation of the Col- 
legiate Reformed Dutch Church. From 1819a member of the Board o( 
Corporation of the Synod of the Reformed Dutch Church and from 1830 

1889.] Francis Marschakk Kip, D.D. \ 1 

its President. For nearly forty years he rendered his services as a lawyer 
gratuitously to General Synod, sparing them for this long period all legal 

Diligence in business, and sterling integrity were his striking charac- 
teristics. During his official term in the Court of Chancery he continued 
to invest small floating amounts ; and as the result handed over to his suc- 
cessor the sum of$io,ooo. It was remarked by one of the secular papers 
of the day, that it was an unprecedented fact in the history of an official 
either in Great Britain or America. He died suddenly Jan 20 th 1837, 
aged 69 years. 

Francis Marschalck Kip was the youngest son of Isaac L. Kip and 
was born in the city of New York Aug 7 th 1807. His educational advan- 
tages were of the highest order. He graduated from Columbia College 
in 1826 ; then entering the office of his honored father, he pursued the 
study of law for two years, when impelled by religious motives, he re- 
linquished the highest advantageous worldly prospects, and entered the 
Theological Seminary of the Reformed Dutch Church in 1827. He was 
licensed by the Classis of New York April 21 st , 1830 ; and ordained Aug. 
8 th of that same year, over the Reformed Dutch Church of Bloomingdale, 
the site of which is now covered by Central Park ; but the organization 
still remains under the pastoral care of D r . Carlos Martin, Boulevard, City. 
The very next year he was transferred by the classis to the Mission of the 
Collegiate Church, then in the outskirts of the city, in East 9 th St., where 
E. Denning's store now stands, in fact, the Corporation of the Collegiate 
Church sold this property to the late A. T. Stewart. 

Here he adapted himself to his duties with the utmost diligence and zeal, 
and his success in the large congregations was so great that the collegiate 
corporation decided upon the erection of a handsome church in that neigh- 
borhood, and for this purpose purchased lots at the corner of Fourth Street 
and Lafayette Place. This, of course, absorbed the Mission. Several 
calls were now placed in our young clergyman's hands. He decided in 
favor of the old historical stone church in Fishkill, and was there installed 
November 8 th , 1836. This was the church of his love. A ministry of 
thirty-five years followed ; almost romantic in its faithfulness, usefulness 
and beauty. His lung pastorate included the most eventful period of our 
national history, financial revolutions, political contests, and even civil 
war, yet the friendly relations between pastor and people were never even 
strained. Throughout all the outward storms and conflicts peace always 
reigned within the old Dutch Church. Nor was this peace ever purchased 
at the sacrifice of principle ; on all questions involving virtue or vice, pat- 
riotism or disloyalty, right or wrong, the pulpit of this church was never 
silent, its trumpet blew no uncertain sound, yet its utterances were so for- 
tified and tempered by so wise an admixture of sterling integrity and affec- 
tion, that prejudice was disarmed, and all strife prevented. 

His sermons were always the result of deep thought and careful study. 
His Sabbath ministrations were full of the cross. He loved the ministry 
with an intensity of devotion. And he was beloved by his people with a 
fervency of devotion rarely accorded to any one individual. His memory 
will ever be regarded as a benediction to both the church and the place. 

In 1854 Dr. Kip visited Europe, spending some time in travelling 
abroad. His letters of introduction were very extensive and he was enter- 
tained by many men of eminence. This journey was ever a source of 

I a Francis Marschahh Kip, D.D. [Jan., 

pleasure during the remainder of his life. In 1857 he was President ol 
General Synod at Utica. The same year he received the title of D.D. 
from Columbia College. In i860 he was elected trustee of Rutgers Col- 
lege. Early in the decade of the seventies Dr. Kip resigned at Fishkill, 
and soon after accepted the pastorate of the United churches of Richmond 
and Huguenot, Staten Island, and was also appointed chaplain of the Sea- 
man's Retreat, then under the charge of the Legislature of New York. In 
1881 he resigned at Staten Island to officiate as chaplain of the city insti- 
tutions at Ward's and Randall's Islands. Early in 1883, the United States 
Marine Service at Washington, D. C, leased the hospital buildings at 
Staten Island, and the American Seaman's Friend Society appointeu Dr. 
Kip as their chaplain, sanctioned and commissioned by the United States 
Marines at Washington. This was the closing work of his long life ; he 
was diligent and faithful in his sei vices, and exceedingly popular in the 
institution with officers, physicians, nurses and patients. He was taken 
ill while on duty, resigned May i st of this year, and died on the 28 th of 
the same month. 

Dr. Kip was a man of many attainments, well versed in the ancient 
languages ; Latin, Greek and Hebrew. In his 70 th year he was appointed 
examiner in the latter tongue, by the Gassis of New York, on account of 
his superior attainments therein. He was an excellent theologian and his- 
torian, and delighted in antiquaiian research. His reminiscences of his 
early years in the city of New York, were exceedingly entertaining and 
amusing. When Canal Street was the skating rink for the boys of the 
period ; when the occupied portion of the city was not much above City 
Hall Park ; when an excursion to the country-seat of Rev. John H. Liv- 
ingston, just above Union Air Furnace, head of Broome Street ami Broad- 
way, occupied a whole day ; when there were about five banks in the city ; 
when the chains were placed across the streets on Sundays by the churches, 
to protect the worshippers from disturbance ; when there was but one the- 
atre and one museum in the city ; when the stages with bugle horns 
travelled over the Boston and Albany roads ; when Captain Randall's noted 
farm was situated on both sides of Broadway from Eighth to Sixteenth 
Street, much of it now the famous Sailors' Snug Harbor leases ; when the 
Columbia College graduates held their annual festival on rocky ground 
belonging to his father on Broadway and Spring Street, on the site of 
St. Nicholas Hotel. But we must forbear. 

Early in life Dr. Kip married Mary Rodgers Bayard, daughter of 
James A. Bayard, and granddaughter of Col. Bayard, all of the historical 
Delaware family. She was also a grandchild of the Rev. John Rodgers, 
D. D. , first pastor of the Wall Street and Brick Presbyterian Churches in 
this city after the revolutionary war. She died some years before him. 
Two sons and three daughters survive their parents.

1889.] Gouverneur Morris. 23 


Gouverneur Morris, of Morrisania, the subject of this sketch, was the 
only child of Gouverneur Morris and Anne Cary Randolph, and was born 
at Morrisania on the 9th of February, 1813. 

The earliest record of the Morris family in America dates from about 
the time of the Restoration [1660] when Colonel Lewis Morris, having 
played a bold and daring part in opposition to King Charles, being then 
in the Island of Barbadoes, and thinking it imprudent to return to Eng- 
land, directed his thoughts and aspirations towards America. Accordingly, 
he sent his brother Richard to New York empowered to purchase large 
tracts of land, "they both being in affluent circumstances." 

Whilst Richard was living in New York a son was born to him in 1672, 
and called Lewis, after his uncle. " Six months after this child's birth " — 
so runs the old record — " the father, Richard, died, and in a few weeks the 
mother also died, and this child, the. sole one of the family and name at 
that period in this country, was left at nurse among strangers at Harlem." 

Such part of young Lewis' papers and other property as had escaped 
the pillage of servants and soldiers, was placed by the Dutch — then in 
possession of New York — under the care and management of some of the 
principal inhabitants, and a guardian appointed for the infant. When New 
York was restored to the English, in 1674, Lewis Morris came from 
Barbadoes, took charge of his nephew, and settled upon his lands in 
New Jersey, improving at the same time his estate in Westchester Co., 
which by the Royal patent of 1676, was called the Lordship or Manor of 

Before leaving Barbadoes, Lewis Morris had unfortunately married a 
woman of low extraction and bad conduct, whom he brought with him to 
America. During Morris' last illness, this woman destroyed all the family 
papers she could lay her hands on, and so remodelled his will as to leave 
her.-elf, and one Bichley, her accomplice, the who e personal estate with 
negroes, and silver. The fraud, however, was so evident that when 
young Lewis came of age some years after his uncle's death, the legisla- 
ture gave him possession of the estate, as his uncle's heir at law. 

Lewis MorriSTnarried Isabella Graham, a near relative of the Marquis 
of Montrose, by whom he had fifteen children, of whom five daughters 
and two sons survived him. At different times he held the offices of 
Chief Justice of New York and New Jersey, State Councillor and Acting 
Governor in 1 73 1, and Governor of New Jersey in 1738. 

In a quaint old family record kept by himself, Lewis Morris^says : " I 
begin the year the 25th of March. I was born atTintern, in New Jersey, 
in the year 1698, the 23d of September, and I was married by William 
Vesey the 17th day of March, 1723, to Mrs. Sarah Staats." The issue of 
this marriage was three sons and one daughter. ,'Lewis. the eldest son, was 
"born the 8th day of April, 1726." He was afterwards one of the 
signers of the Declaration of American Independence. 

Sarah Staats, the first wife of Lewis Morris^died in 173 1, and Morris 
married the 3d of November, 1746, " M hp Sarah Gouverneur," and the 
issue of this marriage was four daughters and one son. Gouverneur, 
who was born on the 30th of January, 1752, and who played so dis- 
tinguished a part in the strugg'e for American freedom, and in the

formation of the Constitution ; and who, during the stormy da*s of the 
Revolution in France, stoutly maintained the integrity of his government 
in the fulfilment of his duties as accredited minister to the French Court. 

In the autumn of 1798, Gouverneur Morris returned to America after 
an absence of ten years, and rebuilt the house at Morrisania in which he 
had been born, and which had seen stormy times during the Revolution, 
it having occupied an unenviable position inside the enemy's lines. 

In 1809 Gouverneur Morris married Miss Anne Cary Randolph, the 
daughter of Thomas Mann Randolph, ofTuckahoe, Va., Esquire, and in 
18 1 6 he died, leaving to her the care of his son and also of his estates 
in which she had a life interest. 

Morrisania was far removed during the early part of the century from 
the busy parts of New York city, and communication was only easy by 
means of the family carriage. Occasional trips into town, and rare jour- 
neys not comfortable and often dangerous through New York State to 
Jefferson Co. to inspect lands, called the "Morris tract," lying along the 
St. Lawrence River, seem to have been the principal breaks in the life of 
the young Gouverneur^ who, with only the companionship of his mother 
and the various interests connected with his farm, grew to man's estate. 

On the 28th of May, 1837, Mrs. Morris died and Morris became pos- 
sessed of his father's estates and responsibilities. After Mrs. Morris's death 
the house at Morrisania was closed for some years, during which time 
Morris mingled somewhat in the society of New York and amongst his 
numerous kinsfolk. 

The extensive field for men of intelligence and enterprise which was 
opened by the projecting and building of railways, early attracted Morris's 
attention ; he foresaw the great effect they would have in helping to build 
up and develope the varied interests of the whole countrv, and therefore 
devoted himself earnestly to the work. 

His first effort in this field was in connection with the New York and 
Harlem Railroad. The company had by herculean efforts completed the 
road in 1838 from the City Hall to Harlem (125th street), in the course of 
which it had blasted its way through many deep rock cuttings, and had 
performed the wonderful feat for that early day, of driving a tunnel of 
several hundred feet in length through the rock at Yorkville hill, and had 
built a long and high viaduct across the Harlem flats involving great 
expense. The road was made a double track, and had cost so much that 
the company found its finances completely exhausted on reaching this 
point, as also were its powers to proceed further under its charter. 

About this time (1838) another company was chartered by the legis- 
lature of the State of New York, called the New York and Albany Railroad 
Company, empowered to build a road from New York to Albany. Gouv- 
erneur Morris and other gentlemen interested in the Harlem road, con- 
ceived and carried out the idea of purchasing this charter and consolidating 
it with the Harlem, which, being accomplished, opened the way for extend- 
ing the Harlem railroad on beyond the Harlem River. 

Railroads were then in their infancy, and people were timid about 
investing money in them, so that it seemed probable that the extension 
would have to be abandoned. In this emergency Morris came forward 
and personally supplied the means with which to extend the road as far as 
Williamsbridge, in Westchester Co., about seven miles, making use for 
the railway of the bridge built for waggon travel across the Harlem River, 

1889.] Gouverneur Morris. 2^ 

at the head of Fourth avenue, that bridge being owned by Gouverneur 
Morris and his cousins Gerard W. Morris and Wm. H. Morris. 

Morris had the satisfaction of seeing the completion of this extension 
and its opening for business in 1841. From this time forward for many 
years he acted as a director in the company, taking a very active part in 
conducting its affairs, and at one time held the office of vice-president. 
He exerted himself in having the road extended from time to time until it 
reached its final completion in 1852, by a connection with the Boston and 
Albany road at Chatham Four Corners, in Columbia Co., New York, one 
hundred and thirty miles from the city. The last fifty miles of the road, 
from Dover Plains to Chatham Corners, called the " Albany Extension," 
were built in 185 1-2 by Morris in partnership with George Schuyler and 
Sidnev G. Miller as chief contractors. 

Seeing the importance to the Harlem Railroad of having a connection 
with deep tide water at its southern terminus, Morris undertook and com- 
pleted in 1850 the construction of the Port Morris branch road from a 
point near the Melrose station on the main line, to a point on the East 
River, opposite Flushing Bay, including the building of ample wharf 
accommodations for large vessels. This road was built upon Morris's own 
lands and with money supplied entirely by himself. 

It was in 1850 that the Illinois Central Railway Company was organized 
and Morris was chosen one of the directors. He was at the time of his 
death the last surviving member of the original direction. The Illinois 
Central was one of the first " Land grant" railroads in the country, and 
being a long line (700 miles including the Chicago branch), attracted a 
great deal of attention. A number of prominent men of that time interested 
themselves in it, and Morris was associated in the board of directors with 
Robert Rantoul of Boston, United States Senator, George Griswold, 
Morris Ketchum, Jonathan Sturges of New York, and others. He took 
an active part in managing the affairs of the company, and remained a 
director for several years. 

This same year, 1850, with George Barker and others, Morris builf the 
Vermont Valley Railroad, 22 miles long, from Brattleboro' to Bellows 
Falls, on the Connecticut River. He became a director in the company 
and subsequently was chosen president. His career as a railway projector 
and builder ended when he retired from the presidency of the Vermont 
Valley road, about ten years ago. 

Morris, in 1852, commenced to build the Treverton and Susquehanna 
Railroad in Pennsylvania. This road, 16 miles long, including a very long 
bridge over the Susquehanna river, was a most difficult work, requiring much 
time and care in its execution. It was, however, very satisfactorily com- 
pleted in 1855. Associated with George L. Schuyler, J. S. Stranahan, 
Josiah W. Baker, Charles G. Case and Sidney G. Miller, Morris 
entered into contract with the Albany and Susquehanna Railroad 
Company in 1853,10 build its road from Albany to Binghamton, in 
Broome county, on the Erie Railway, a distance of 140 miles. The work 
was commenced soon after the contract was signed, and the grading was 
quite far advanced when, in 1854, a difference of opinion arising between 
the company and the contractors, as to the interpretation of a clause in the 
contract, work was stopped, the contractors considering themselves justified 
in abandoning it. 

As early as 1839, Morris became persuaded that the progress of railways 

26 The ' Bruyn Family of Ulster County, N. Y. [J an «> 

through the country could not be arrested by the timidity of persons 
unwilling to put their money in them, and to a number of gentlemen 
averse to subscribing for the completion of the New York and Albany 
road, he plainly stated this conviction. ' ' Gentlemen, " said he, ' ' it makes 
no difference how dilatory you are in the matter, within thirty years there 
will be steam communication from Boston pierhead to the Pacific." The 
less far seeing among this group of gentlemen were inclined to treat the 
prediction as a flight of imagination, but many of them lived to see the 
prophecy fulfilled, for exactly thirty years and four months after it was 
made the last spike was driven in the Pacific Railway. 

Railways however did not exclusively occupy Morris's attention, he was 
always a devoted farmer, and very successfully cultivated his acres, and for 
many years the New York market was largely supplied with produce from 
his farm, in the form of milk and vegetables. One of Morris's earliest 
acts in behalf of the public, was the building of a church on a part of his 
farm. This church, a monument to his mother, and called St. Ann's, was 
built in 184 1, and consecrated by Bishop Onderdonk, in the summer of 
the same year. It is now a flourishing city parish, and standing as it does 
surrounded by beautiful grounds, it bids fair to become the first church in 
this large and important part of New York City. 

In Feburary, 1842, Morris married his cousin, Miss Martha Jefferson 
Cary, of Virginia, and by her had ten children, of whom five survive him. 
Mrs. Morris died in 1873, and m ^76, Mr. Morris married his cousin, 
Miss Anna Morris. After his second marriage he lived quietly at Pelham, 
where he died, after a long illness, the 20th of August, 1888, aged 75 years. 

The period of 138 years, covered by the lives of two men, father and 
son, was one of vast interest to the civilized world. It embraced the 
American Revolution for Independence, the Revolution in France for 
Liberty, the development of the far reaching power of the press, the per- 
fecting of the locomotive-engine which has opened the immense resources 
of America, and the unfolding of the amazing power of the electric 

With keen intelligence the two Morrises, father and son, conceived and 
prophesied the development of their country, and each in his generation 
labored earnestly for her advancement. ANNE CARY MORRIS.

Though the Dutch and the Huguenot blood largely predominated 
among the early settlers of Ulster County, men of other nationalities found 
their way there, and were not among the least efficient in cultivating and 
protecting the lands of Wiltwyck, and the little settlements that soon 
sprang up around it. Germans came, and Englishmen, Swedes and 
Norwegians, active enterpri.-ing men, who, many of them, having served 
under the government of Holland in military or civil capacity, were well 
adapted to co-operate with their Dutch associates in the colonization of 
these fertile regions of the New World. 

1889.] The Bruyn Family of Ulster County, N. Y. 27 

Hendrick Jochemse Schoonmaker from Germany, Daniel Brodhead 
from England, Martin Hoffman from Sweden, and Jacobus Bruyn from 
Norway were, with Depue and Deyo and Hasbrouck and Du Bois, with 
Burhans and Van Keuren and Elting and De Witt, among the founders 
and builders, the cultivators and protectors of the villages, the farms and 
the homes that are now occupied by their prosperous descendants. 

Jacobus Bruyn was born in Norway, probably about 1645. Feeling, 
doubtless, when he reached manhood that his trade, which was that of a 
ship carpenter, would have a wider scope for success in the New World, 
he emigrated to New Amsterdam. There, tradition has it, he lived for a 
time, and then pushed on to Ulster County, settling in what is now the 
town of Shawangunk. About 1677 he married Gertrude Esselsteyn of 
Columbia county. She was the daughter of Jan Willemse Esselsteyn and 
Willemtje Jans, and was baptised in New Amsterdam 22 May, 1650 
Bruyn died about 1684 or 5 ; leaving three young children to the care of 
his widow, who, soon after, married Severyn Ten Hout, a Hollander, who 
came to this country in the ship " Fox " in September, 1662. There was 
no issue of this marriage, and Ten Hout, when he died in 1708, left a 
will giving all his property to his step-children, the Bruyns.

brother-in-law, Abraham Hasbrouck, in recording his death says 
of him : "He was endowed with a good share of knowledge, 
strong natural parts, a sound judgment and honest principles, a 
grand supporter of church and state, and a steady friend to both. 
Of his stature he was about five feet ten or eleven inches high or

-jq Huguenot Settlers and Land Owners in Monmouth Co., N. J. [Jan., 


By Edwin Salter. 

Anthony Pintard is named in court records of Monmouth County, 
1 69 1, as a merchant. In 1692 he bought land of Sarah Reape, and in 
1695 of Nicholas Brown. He was assessor of Shrewsbury 1^98 and judge 
or justice 1700-4. The will of Anthony Pintard of Shrewsbury was dated 
February 24, 1729, and proved 1732. It named eight children, viz., eldest 
son Anthony, sons Samuel and John Lewis ; daughters Florinda and 
\J Anna Pintard, Magdalen Hutchins, Catharine Searles, wife of John Searles, 

and Isabella Van Dam, wife of Isaac Van Dam. He left £50 to the 
French Protestant Church of New York, and £10 to its pastor, Lewis 
Row and £10 to William Mouliner, pastor of the French Protestant 
Church at New Rochelle. Executors, friend Lewis Carree of New York, 
sons John Lewis and Samuel, and son-in-law John Searles. (Rec. Wills, 
in Sec. State's office Trenton, N. J. Book A, /. 248.) 

In 1701 he was a member of the New Jersey Provincial Council, being 
recommended to that position by the Board of Proprietors as "one of 
the persons of ye best estates in East Jersie." He lived for a while in 
New York, and in' his will he refers to his house and lot in New York. 
Isabella " Baudane " named in the will, was probably the daughter who 
married Isaac Van Dam. 

Anthony Pintard (2 d ?) of Navesinks, in Monmouth County, had 
license in New York, May 14, 1692, to marry Katherine Stateboth. 

In 1764, among taxpayers in Shrewsbury were Samuel and Anthony 
Pintard. Letters to John Bowne of Monmouth, from John Pintard 
and Lewis Pintard of New York, 175 1-8 and 1760, are now in possession 
of James G. Crawford, an aged gentleman of Freehold. 

In 1779, the property in Monmouth of John Pintard, jr., a loyalist 
was confiscated, sold and bought by Thomas Lloyd. It is possible he 
may have lived in New York. By records of Trinity Church, N. Y. 
John Pintard married Mary Cannon May 27, 1757. The Cannon family 
was of prominence in Monmouth; perhaps this Alary was of Monmouth. 

Lewis Pintard of New York, was married to Mary Vallade April 4, 
1774, at New Rochelle, and for some unexplained reason, the record was 
entered on register of St. George's Church, Hempstead, L. I. 

John and Lewis were New York merchants. In 175 1 John said he 
owned two scows (a two-masted vessel), one of which traded to Dublin. 
They were both well acquainted in Monmouth. 

Among the marriage licenses recorded at Trenton, in the office of the 
Secretary of State, are the following : 

John Pintard of Monmouth, to Mary Van Dyke of the same county, 
Feb. 3, 1 76 1. 

Samuel Pintard to Mary Borden, Apr. 23, 1761, both of Monmouth. 

William Pintard of Shrewsbury, to Hannah Scott, Jan. 5, 1761. 

In 1804, Isaac Pintard, of Monmouth, had land deeded to him by 
Mary, widow of Samuel Pintard. 

In 1801. April 8, John Pintard, of New York, married Phebe Williams. 

The Pintard family has now members living in Monmouth. William 
Pintard was member of the N. J. Legislature from that county in 1886.

1 T 

In the Record, July, 1884, page 139, is a notice which says that the 
Huguenots name of Pintard is among those no longer heard save as a 
baptismal name, but the foregoing shows that Pintards still lives ! 

Lewis or Louis Carree, named as an executor of Anthony Pintard, 
had a son Lewis, who settled for a brief period, at Allentown in Mon- 
mouth Count}', as his will i9 dated at Allentown, in November, 1732, but 
he is not named among the taxpayers there in the preceding year. His 
will named wife Margaret and son Lewis ; executors, father Lewis Carree, 
wife Margaret, brother John Lewis Pintard and friend Isaac Stelle. From 
this will it seems that fohn Lewis Pintard married Carree's sister. The 
son Lewis named in the will, it is said, died in the West Indies. The 
wife Margaret was a daughter of Thomas Gordon ; after Carree's death 
she married Gabriel Stelle, whose children are named in his will hereafter 
noticed. From this will, it is evident that there are errors in the tradition- 
ary account given in Whitehead's History of Perth Amboy. 

Elias Mestayer of Shrewsbury, died in 1731. His will named sister 
Anne Hester Villeman, wife of John Villeman, distiller, Spitalfields, Eng- 
land, and he made a bequest to the poor of the French Protestant Church 
in Artillery Lane, Spitalfields, London. The named executors, John 
Amboymane of New York, and Peter Le Conte, physician now residing 
in Shrewsbury. 

Peter Le Conte was a physician of Shrewsbury ; he is named in the 
will of Elias Mestayer 1731 ; in 1734 he is said to be of Freehold and 
bought 500 acres of land near Barnegat. He married Valerie, daughter 
of John Faton. His tombstone near Matawan says he died in 1768, 
aged 66 years. Dr. Wickes, in his History of Medical Men of N. J. says 
he was descended from William Le Conte, who came from Normandy after 
the revocation of the edict of Nantes, 1685, and that this William had 
three children, viz., William, Dr. Peter, and Esther. There was a Peter 
Le Conte of Staten Island who bought land at Woodbridge, N. J., in 
1696. In the record of wills in Surrogate's office, New York city, is one of 
" Petter La Counte " of Staten Island, dated Oct. 11, 1702, and proved 
April, 1704. It names wife Margaret, son and heir John, sons Peter and 
James. Was this Peter a brother of William, who came from Normandy? 

Robert Le Cock had lands in Shrewsbury 1679. His place is referred 
to, 1687, in will of John Chambers and his name spelled Lacock. 

Edmund Lifetra was among the original settlers of Monmouth, named 
1667. He married a widow named Frances West ; he died in Sept. 1687, 
leaving widow Frances, son Edmund, daughter Elizabeth and other daugh- 
ters. His son Edmund married Hannah Allen, and died in 1719, leaving 
children George, James, Joseph, who settled in Philadelphia, Elizabeth 
and Sarah. They are all named in his will dated 171 7. The son James 
left children, and his descendants are now living in New Jersey, New York 
and elsewhere. A tradition handed down says Edmund first had a 
brother who came to America with him, but his name was not given. 
There was a Huguenot who settled in South Jersey, by or before 1685, 
whose name was given as Erasmus La Fettre, and he possibly may have 
been the brother. The old Salem records may have changed La Fetra 
to La Fettre. The descendants of Erasmus have been traced down to 
the present day by Thomas Shourds of Salem County, N. J., and some of 
his descendants now living in Camden and Philadelphia spell their name 
simp'y '' Fetters.'' 

->2 Huguenot Settlers and Land Owners in Monmouth Co., N. J. [Jan., 

Francis Le Maistre was also an original settler of Monmouth 1667. 
His name was soon corrupted to Francis Masters. He did not seem to 
get along amicably with his Huguenot neighbor, Edmund La Fetra, as 
they seemed continually at law with each other from 1670 to 1677. 

Mindart Lafever is named in Freehold records as of New York in 
17 1 5. The same year he is named as of Middletown, N. J. He shortly 
after sold land to William Brewer, and his name drops out of Freehold 
records about 1725. 

Jacob Trieux, whose name finally settled down to Jacob Truax bought 
land in Monmouth 1676, was constable 1698 and his name frequently 
occurs in land and court records. It is variously given as "du Truax, 
Trieux, Trewax, and finally Truax. Philip Truax was a witness to a 
deed 1698. It is supposed that Jacob was of the family of Philip Du 
Trieux, court messenger, who settled in New Amsterdam in 1623; Philip's 
eldest son Philip was perhaps the third child born in New Amsterdam. 
Jacob Du Trieux or Truax was born in New Amsterdam Dec. 7, 1645. 
A son named Isaac went up the Hudson toward Schenectady where the 
surname is sometimes given as Du Trooay or Du Tray. 

Elias De Hart was a constable in Shrewsbury 1720 ; he was a grand- 
son of Simon Aertsen De Hart, a Huguenot, who came over in 1664. 

Randall Huet an original settler of Monmouth 1669, according to 
tradition, was of Huguenot origin. He had previously lived in New 
York. He left children Randall 2' 1 , Joseph, Thomas and others. 

Pontus, Poncet, or Pounsett Stelle, was licensed to keep a public inn 
in 1693 m Monmouth County, and his first name then given as "Poun- 
sett." His son Gabriel bought lands near Manasquan in 1714; he was 
a "judge of the quorum" and quite prominent in public affairs. In 
1729 he was settled at Perth Amboy. The will of Lyuia Woolley, 1732, 
refers to his children. In 1728 he had a patent for a ferry from South 
Amboy to Staten Island. 

It is said that Pontus or Poncet Stelle first settled in Staten Island and 
about 1680 went to New York and from thence to Monmouth. His 
children were Benjamin, born 1683, died 1759; Gabriel, born 1685, died 
1738; Ambrose, born 1687; John, 1689; Isaic, 1690; Eugene, [692. 
Benjamin settled at Piscataway and became a noted Baptist minister, 
ordained 1739. The will of Gabriel Stelle was dated March 24, 1734-5, 
and proved Dec. 23, 1738 ; it named wife Margaret, sons Thomas 
Gordon Stelle, Pontus Stelle and Isaac Stelle, and daughters Elizabeth 
and Catharine. Executors wife Margaret, son Pontus and son Thomas 

John Jerney, Jorney or Jernee, as the surname was variously given, 
was probably of Huguenot origin. In tiis will dated at Manasquan 
1731, proved 1738, he named wife Elizabeth, eldest son John then 
deceased ; sons James and Peter. Executors wife Elizabeth, sons 
James and Peter Traverrier. The latter name seems also of French 
origin. Another John Jorney was taxed in 1764 in Shrewsbury. 
Descendants of this family now live in Monmouth. 

The Gaskells and Gaskins of Monmouth and Burlington County are 
of Huguenot origin, descending from Edward Gascoyne, a shipwright, 
who had a grant of land in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1639. He had a son 
Samuel who married Provided Southwick, the real heroine of Whittier's 
beautiful ballad of " Cassandra Southwick." Cassandra was the mother 

1889.] Huguenot Settlers and Land Owners in Monmouth Co., N. jf. *>? 

of Provided and Whittier substituted her name for the daughter's because 
it seemed more suitable for poetry. About the time of the marriage to 
Samuel to Provided, the name Gascoyne was changed to both Gaskell and 
Gaskin. In an affidavit signed by Provided and her husband, given in 
N. E. Hist. & Gen. Reg. Vol. XVIII., the surnane is given both ways in 
the same paper. 

Samuel and Provided Gaskell had children. 
Samuel, born Nov. 11, 1663. 
Edward, " Oct. 23, 1667. 
Hannah, " Jan. 2, 1669. 
Provided, " April 12, 1672. 

The last named Edward Gaskell, with Josiah Southwick, came to New 
Jersey and bought the mill at Mount Holly, by deed dated March 14, 
1 701. There was a Joseph Gaskell, probably a relative, who came at the 
same time. Edward and Joseph both left descendants, as did Josiah 

Henry Perrine, of Staten Island, bought in 171 1 of Cornelius Long- 
field, of Somerset County, lands on Matchaponix Neck, which was 
formerly in Monmouth County but then in Middlesex. 

Peter Perrine, of Staten Island, bought land, 1713, of John Hampton of 

The Perrine family is now very numerous in Monmouth and other 
counties in New Jersey, with branches in several states. They descend 
from Pierre Perrine, a Huguenot, who came from Lower Charante, France, 
and settled on Staten Island. It is said they came over on the noted ship 
Caledonia, which is noticed in Whitehead's History of Perth Amboy. The 
old Perrine homestead, a stone house on Staten Island, is well known to 
many descendants who make pilgrimages to it to see where their ancestor 

Pierre Perrine had sons Daniel, who died unmarried, and Henry, 
who had wife Maria. 

Henry and wife Maria had children John, Daniel, Peter V., born 1706, 
and Henry born 17 13. The son John settled at Perrineville and left 
issue. Daniel settled in Stafford township, formerly in Monmouth but 
now in Ocean County. 

A large amount of the genealogy of this family has been preserved. 

David Rulan settled in Barnegat, formerly in Monmouth, now in Ocean 
County, many years before the Revolution. The noted missionary, Rev. 
John Brainerd, had regular Presbyterian preaching at his house about 
1760. The ancestor of this family was a Huguenot who was hid in a 
hogshead and rolled on shipboard and thus left France. A small volume 
containing the genealogy of some branches of this family was published 
in 1870. 

The Dobbins family of New Jersey, New York, and elsewhere, 
according to a tradition handed down in some branches, are of Huegue- 
not origin. Capt. D. P. Dobbins of Buffalo, N. Y., the heroic, intelli- 
gent Superintendent of Life Saving Stations on the Lakes, says his an- 
cestors were Huguenots and originally called D'Aubigne, which the 
English pronounced Dawbeen and finally Dobbins In view of the ascer- 
tained changes in many Huguenot names such as of Gascoyne, Du Trieux, 
Le Maistre, Verdon (to Fardon) and some others, Captain Dobbins state- 
ment seems reasonable. Names of Dutch origin have undergone similar 

-?4 Huguenot Settlers and Land Owners in Monmouth Co., N. jf. [Jan. r 

changes: for instance, Van Langstraaten has become Longstreet, Karsen- 
boom is now Cassaboom, Alburtis is often Burtis, Van Amach is now 
Aumack, and andVan Aredaalen is Van Arsdale. Of names of English 
origin, Obadiah Hullmes, of Salem, Mass., 1639, preserved his surname 
unimpaired, but about 1680 his sons changed it to Holmes. He was of the 
noted family of Hulme which founded the manor of Hulme in Manchester, 
England. The Chadwicks have got almost inextricably mixed up with the 
Shaddocks and Shattocks, and the Hoytsarein a similar condition with the 
Hoits, Hayts and Haights. Of names of French origin, antedating the 
Huguenot emigration, Mott is common in New Jersey and New York. 
The first Mott in Monmouth County was Gresham, named about 1685, 
son of the Adam Mott of New York. The latter came to New York 
about 1646 from Essex County, England. In that shire the family is 
quite ancient. John Mott, born about 1330, became prominent and 
descendants owned numerous manors and estates. The pedigree of the 
main line has been preserved for five hundred years. It is supposed the 
founder came over with the Conqueror from La Mott or La Motte in 
Normandy. Such names eventually became "naturalized," as Lower ex- 
presses it in his " Patronymica Britannia ; but La Mott, La Motte and 
De La Motte are surnames still preserved in England. The crest of the 
Essex Motts was an eight-pointed star on a crown, and its Latin motto, 
Spectemur Agei.di, was given in English as "Speed, Strength, and 
Truth.'' The Mott family of Essex County, England, branched over 
the line into Cambridge from whence came another Adam Mott to Rhode 

Hier or Hyer, another surname common in New York and New 
Jersey, is also probably of French origin. The founder of the family 
was Walter Hires, who married Tryntie Bickers, daughter of Garret, 
November 4, 1668. The names Walter and Garret were family 
names among descendants for many generations. Walter Hiers came 
from Kingston, in Surrey on the Thames above London. In Manning 
and Bray's History of Surrey, George Hyer is named as the most promi- 
nent man of the family about the time Walter was born. In the records 
of the Reformed Dutch of New York, the surname of Walter and descend- 
ants is variously given as Hier, Hyers, Heyrs, etc. The name is proba- 
bly derived from the beautiful seaside resort in the southeast corner of 
France, called Heires, the name of which in some modern maps is 
sometimes spelled Heyres. Heires and Heyre are surnames now 
well known in England. The effort of English people to grapple with 
the pronunciation of the French Heires has no doubt led to the different 
spelling of the name. 


A few names, evidently of Jewish origin, are found in ancient Mon- 
mouth records. 

Levy Hart was taxed, 1764, in Shrewsbury. He had wife Catharine 
and son John. A deed dated Oct. 18, 1784, states that Catharine 
Huddy, late Catharine Hart, of Shrewsbury, and Jacob Hart, eldest son of 
aid Catharine and Levy Hart, her former husband, deeded land to Benjamin 
judah, merchant of New York ; it also names Samuel S. Judah, formerly 
of New York. The widow Catharine was deceased in 1783. It is 

1889.] Records of the First and Second Presbyterian Churches, ir 

probable that her second husband was the we'1-known patriot, Capt. 
Joshua Huddy, who was barbarously hung by the Refugees, near the 
Highlands in 1782. The son Jacob Hart once kept the noted hotel at 
Colt's Neck ; he had a brother Ebenezer, who had children Elias, Levi and 
daughters. A descendant, A. C. Hart, is now associate editor of the 
Monmouth Democrat, Freehold. 

Samuel Judah, named above, in 1784, had children Benjamin S., 
merchant ofNew York, Cary, late of New York but settled in Freehold 
1789 as a merchant, and daughters Amelia, Sarah and Rebecca. 

Levi Solomon bought land in Freehold in 1790. 

James Abraham, born in Northamptonshire, England, came with wife 
Janet to Monmouth, where he died in 1765 and his wife in 1747. They 
left descendants. The name suggests Jewish origin.

4-0 Journal of Cornelia, Daughter of Governor George Clinton. [Jan., 


Contributed by James R. Gibson, Jr. 

The following letter or journal was kindly sent to me by Mrs. C. E 
Van Cortlandt, of the Manor House, at Croton. The journal has no 
date nor signature, but was undoubtedly written by Cornelia, the second 
daughter of Governor and Vice-President George Clinton, and who after- 
ward married Edmund C. Genet, the French minister. It must have 
been written in 1787/ when Governor Clinton was living in Queen (now 
Pearl Street), and John McKesson was living in Broad Street, near Ex- 
change place. Verlelenberg hill was about the corner of Exchange place 
and Broad street. High street was the present John street. The Mr. 
Van Nest referred to was probably Peter Van Ness, a Senator and member 
of the council, and father of the prominent Van Ness family of Columbia 
county. Mr. Sands was Comfort Sands, distinguished for his public ser- 
vices and patriotism. John McKesson, the Secretary of the first Pro- 
vincial Congress, was at this time clerk of the Assembly, which then held 
its sessions in New York City. David Jones may have been the son of 
Samuel Jones, Attorney at Law, living at 34 Broadway. The author of 
the DeWitt Genealogy 'can probably place the " red headed" George. I 
have purposely abbreviated this note in hopes that the modest, but accom- 
plished compiler of "Comfort Sands and his descendants," or some lover 
of historic times may be tempted to weave in a Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical group the heroes of this historical gossip for a future number of 
the Record.* 

" After I Left the house of the Governor which was on Wednesday the 
4 th of August at 4 o'clock in the afternoon we took our course tordsjohn 
McKessons & when we had walked down Queen Street as far as KSmg 
Street his Excellency proposed our turning that Street as it was probable 
we might see some of our friends. Maria seconded the motion saying it 
was a narrow street & shady therefore it would be cooler than any other 
except Hanover Square & that was out of our way so that it was agreed 
upon that we should take the nearest way so when we came as far as Mr. 
Sands nearly opposite there lives 2 young gentlemen & 3 young ladies 
well the little red headed fellow (who has some pretensions to Maria) 
poked his head out of the window & said how do you do Ladies. Oh 
very well cried we all in a breath. Good-by says Maria I am going home 
Well God bless you replied he in very mournful accents we walked on in 
this manner, the Gov r & Caty before Maria walked a little behind with 
her arm drawn through mine & her eyes fixed on the ground & every now 
& then lifting her handkerchief in order to wipe away the falling tears & 
repeating these words, does not George look sorry, say did not he look 
very much distrest — presently I heard some one say, how do you do Gov r , 

* As an interesting footnote I copy from Mr. Prime's work the names of the pall 
bearers of Comfort Sands' first wife, who died in 1794. — Robert Lenox, William 
Seton, I. C. Shaw, Henry Cruger, Anthony L. Bleecker, Isaac Roosevelt, William 
Constable, William Maxwell.

how do you do Miss Clinton, by this time we had got opposite the win- 
dow of a white house no I believe it is a store. I gave Maria a little push 
to see who was there when after looking sometime I perceived a little man 
sitting on a counter & in a low voice cried Good by peace and heaven be 
with thee Maria & myself both said farewell put our handkerchiefs to 
our eves drawed our veils & walked on. Caty said nothing but sighing 
every moment as if her heart would break walked along side of my father. 
I need not say that she was obliged to draw her veil over her face. Noth- 
ing particular happened from the time we turned King Street till we ar- 
rived at John McKessons — when we had got as far as this we began to 
think of taking leave of our friends there which diverted our minds from 
the late melancholy farewells thro' King Street — We took ourselves up- 
stairs to the Dining room whereafter we had taken a glass of wine & water 
to recruit us a little we marched into the drawing room kissed the ladies 
all round & took ourselves off through Verletenberg hill across broadway 
to the dock where we expected to find the sloop but dreadful to tell after 
walking from the Battery to Greenwich Street and back again we could not 
find the vessel but after making every inquiry we heard that it had not turned 
the battel y so back we posted to Broadstreet. Miss McKesson told us that 
Dewit (that is the name of our Beau) had been there & that his face was as 
red as M r V Ness-es coat & our faces did not look very different for we had a 
very warm walk & Dewit had a good scolding for it — we agreed to stay & 
take a dish of tea & cool ourselves we therefore off with our hats & shawls 
& went into the bedroom to see Miss Van ness & Miss Ann Cobham but 
we ran back very soon to put on our hats again for M r Van Ness was 
seated there &: we made a very awkward appearance indeed with our hair 
hanging loose about our heads so after fixing ourselves a little we returned 
to the room from which we had fled with so much precipitation, where 
we spent a half hour very agreeably until we were summoned to tea 
we seated ourselves & took each of us a Dish of tea and a cake, when in 
came our gallant & David Jones another young man who has a notion 
for Maiia, our Beau had a pretty smart lecture from the Governor (which 
I am happy to say has been serviceable to him) upon account of not let- 
ting us know more particularly the houre the sloop was to sail. After 
drinking our tea which we poured down & fast & as hot as we got it, we 
set off again for the Dock & we arrived there without any inconveniences 
except to Mr V. N. & myself who had like to have fallen over a small shoe 
which lay in the street — when we came to the vessel (which by good 
luck was there) M r Jones poked Maria in the sloop as Mr V. N did me 
Lady Caty we left to the care of my Father. We went in the Cabben & 
found a decent old lady there who was, or pretended to be very happy to 
see us — we appeared likewise to be glad to see her for we learned this old 
maxim from our Father and Mother, to make the best of a bad bargain. 
We kissed the gentlemen that accompanied us there & then set sail for 
the city of New Windsor."

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society removed on the 
1st of July last from its old home in the Mott Memorial Hall, 64 Madison Ave., where 
it had been since its foundation, to temporary quarters in the Berkeley Lyceum 
Building, 19 West 44th St., where it will remain until the completion of the new 
building adjoining, in which permanent rooms have been secured. This building 
will, it is hoped, be ready for occupancy in the spring or early summer. In October, 
the usual semi-monthly meetings were resumed, and at these meetings the following 
addresses have been delivered : Oct. 12th, by Gen. Jas. Grant Wilson, on " Two Old 
Veterans, Count Pahlen and Gen. Louis Kossuth ;" Oct. 26th, by Rev. F. F. Buer-

known by his nom de plume of " Edmund Kirk"), Gen. Daniel Butterfield, and Mrs. 
Martha J. Lamb. There has been a considerable increase in membership during the

The City of Albany desires to procure portraits of all its Mayors. The 
details of its plans are set forth in the following communication from an esteemed 
correspondent : 

At a meeting of the common council of the city of Albany held June 18, 18S8, 
a committee consisting of Messrs. Pruyn, Greagan and Gregory, in the order named 
was appointed to ascertain what could be done in the way of obtaining portraits (oil 
paintings) of the mayors of Albany to be placed in the Albany City Hall. As the 
city has no money for the purchase of portraits, the work before the committee is 
not without embarrassment. It is hoped that a small item will be placed in the tax 
budget annually for the purchase from time to time of such portraits or copies of them 
as the city can not acquire by gift. At present the city owns the portrait of one mayor, 
that of Abraham Ten Broeck, mayor from 1779 *° I 7§3 and from 1796 to 1799. This 
was given to the city about the time of its bicentennial in 18S6 by Mr. Frederick P. 
Olcott. It has been hoped that citizens of Albany and others possessing portraits of 
mayors would follow Mr. Olcott's example and give copies, if not the originals, to the 
city. In two cases this hope is about to be realized. It has been suggested that 
members of a family which has been represented among the mayors of Albany should 
unite and present to the city as a memorial, a portrait of the mayor or in case of two 
or more mayors, the portraits of the mayors bearing the family name. A list of 
mayors is appended. If any reader of the Record knows of the existence of any 
portrait or portraits of any mayor or mayors, he or she will confer a favor by communi- 
cating with the chairman of the committee, John V. L. Pruyn, 25 North Pearl St. 
Albany, N. Y. 

The following are the names of the mayors of the city of Albany, from 1686 down 
to 1888, with the terms of service of each :

Philip S. Van Rensselaer held the office of mayor nineteen years, being the 
longest period that any person continued in the office. 

Jared L. Rathbone was the first mayor elected by the people. Previous to his 
third term these officers were elected by the common council. 

Dr. J. V. Quackenbush also claimed to have been mayor in 1862, the old board 
declaring for one candidate, and the new board for the other. Dr. Quackenbush was 
the acting mayor. 

Subscribers to the first volume of the Winslow Memorial will be glad to learn 
that Volume Second is nearly ready for delivery. Since Dr. Holton's death, his 
widow and life-long as-ociate in all his genealogical studies, has been most assid- 
uously laboring to bring this magnum opus to completion. Her conscientious sense 
of what was due to the subscribers as well as to the memory of her deceased husband, 
has sustained her through labors, trials and disappointments, which, together with 
frail health, have been most discouraging. Just as she had matters all ready, as it 
seemed, for publication, .the fire in The Century Building, where her material was 
stored, destroyed many printed pages, portraits, etc., and worse than all, the entire 
index for the two volumes. With unsurpassable courage she has replaced these losses, 
and expects to have the work ready for subscribers by January, 1889. Communica- 
tions should be addressed to Mrs. F. K. Holton, 12 Clinton Place, New York.

The Rev. Dr., in his address at the quarter-millenial anniversary of the 
Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of ihe city of New York, in 1888, says, " in 1626 
two pious schoolmasters came over with Director Minuet. Their duty, besides 
instructing the youth in secular learning, was to conduct religious services on the 
Sabbath day, by reading the Scriptures, the Creed and a sermon (much like the Dea- 
cons' meetings in New England) ; and they were to minister to the sick until such 
time as an ordained minister should be provided. From the latter duty they were 
called ' Zieken-t)oosters, i.e., Comforters of the Sick.' See p. 37. In the History of 
the School of the Collegiate Dutch Church 2 d Edition, published in 1883, pp. 147), 
they are called also ' A'rank-besoeclcers,' and their names are given— Sel'astian Jans 
Crol and Jan Huyck. Are there any descendants of these early settlers now living ? "

a a Notes and Queries. [J an -> 

The Rev. Evelyn Bartow writes to us that he recently visited, in company 
with the Rev. Dr. Fiske, Little Neck Cemetery, near Riverside, R. I., in which 
Thomas Willett, the first Mayor of New York, and his wife Mary are buried. We 
respectfully desire to direct the attention of our esteemed correspondents, Com- 
mander Hooker and W. H., to the result of the investigations made by these gentle- 
men. They found that the name is spelled Willett, and that the date of Mrs. Wil- 
lett's death is plainly and unmistakably 1669. Hence the ingenious explanation 
given by one of our correspondents of an error which does not appear to exist 
(Record, Vol. XVIII., p. 126), would seem to be superfluous. We will further sug- 
gest to both our correspondents to re-examine the dates of the birth of the children of 
Thomas and Mary Willett (Record, Vol. XIX, p. 174). A woman marrying at 
thirty-two may naturally be a mother in a year; but she is a prolific and persevering 
one if her youngest child be born when she is sixty-one. Mrs. Willett's daughter 
Rebecca was probably born in 1644 and not in 1665. The following are the inscrip- 
tions sent by Mr. Bartow :

Since the publication of my article on the Thorne Genealogy I have received 
many valuable notes from persons hitherto unknown to me. I earnestly ask that any 
other facts known concerning this family, particularly its earlier members, be sent to 
me immediately. All such records shall be preserved in the library of this Society. 

The following questions I desire to have answered : Who was the wife of William 
Thome 1 ? Who was Winifred, wife of William 2 ? Who was Mary, wife of John 2 ? 
Who was Susannah, wife of Samuel 2 ? What is known about the family of John 
Lockerson (or was it Ockerson ?), " ancestor of the Kissams," who married Susannah 
Thorne 2 ? Are any other children of William ' known ? There was a John Thorne 
of New York city who m., 26 May, 1710, Maria Flamin (See Records of Old Dutch 
Church). Who was he? There was a John Thorne, whose wife was Marytje Bres- 
tede They had children baptized in the Dutch Church : Pieter, 24 Dec, 1710; John, 
2 March, 1712 ; George, 4 Sept., 1713. Who was this John ? My next paper on 
the Thorne family will be printed in the April number of the Record. 

Balthazar DeWoi.f, first found in Wethersfield, Conn., in 1664, in Hartford in 
1666, and in Lyme in 1668, is the ancestor of all the New England and New York 
De Wolfs. Can any one tell whether he came from England or Holland ?

The Records of the parish of Jamaica, Queens County, N. Y., are complete 
from 1710 to 1732, and from 1780 to the present time. It has long been supposed 
that the parish registers for the intermediate time had been lost, and a statement to 
that effect was made in the January Record. An account, however, of the rise and 
progress of that parish, signed by William Per; line, secretary, and printed in the 
Convention Journal for 1S0S, says that the second third rectors, Messrs. Colgan and 
Seabury, left no records, and that Mr. Bloomer, who became rector in 1769, kept no 
records but of marriages until 17S0, and after that of marriages and baptisms only. 
Mr. Hammell, rector from 1790 to 1795. recorded only baptisms and marriages. 
.His statement, given at considerable length, Mr. Puntine certifies to be " a true 
copy, taken from the minutes." 

The Library of the Society is now open daily, except on Sundays, from eleven to 
three, and on Tuesdays and Fridays until half-past five, at which times one of the 
members of the Society is usually present. A convenient room in the Berkeley Ly- 
ceum, No. 19 West 44th Street, has been placed at the disposal of the Society, and 
will be occupied by it until the new building next door, now going up, is completed. 
It is hoped that the Society will be in possession, early in the spring, of the rooms 
which it has secured in this building ; and that its members will, in the meanwhile, 
avail themselves of the increased accommodations which are now offered them. 

\~ The Society is making a collection of Marriages and Deaths, and would be 
glad to receive cuttings from newspapers of any date before Nov. 1, 1888, or the 
papers themselves. Can any reader of the Record tell when the first printed notice 
of a marriage or death appeared in a New York newspaper ? e. 

Mr. James Riker requests information about the family of Hoogland, Hoag- 
land, or Hogeland. Persons able to contribute materials bearing upon the history of 
this family will confer a favor by addressing him at Waverly, Tioga Co., N. Y. 


John William Schmidt Arnold was born in Charleston, South Carolina, on 
May 16th, 1S46. He was educated at Columbia College, New York, from which he 
graduated in 1868 with the degree of A. B., subsequently, (in 1871) receiving from 
this same institution the degree of A. M. In 1869 he married Adeline Clinton 
Bleecker only daughter of John Rhinelander Bleecker. In i858, he commenced the 
study of medicine in the Bellevue Hospital Medical College, entering the physiological 
laboratory of Professor Austin Flint, Jr., as a pupil and assistant, and was graduated 
in 1871, with the degree of M. D. In 1871 he was appointed visiting surgeon to the 
New York Dispensary for Diseases of the Skin. In 1872 he was appointed Professor 
of Physiological and Pathological Histology in the Medical Department of the Uni- 
versity of the City of New York. Upon the resignation of Professor Henry Draper, 
he was elected to the chair of Physiology and Histology, which he held until the 
fall of 1882, when he resigned on account of ill health, and the University conferred 
on him the title of Emeritus Professor ; it is the only such title now held by any one 
in the University. In 1872 he was appointed Curator of Bellevue Hospital and 
subsequently held the same position to the New York Lunatic Asylum, on Black- 
well's Island. 

In October 1882, when he resigned from the University he moved to Thomasville, 
Georgia, hoping that the change of climate would be of some benefit to his health. 
In 1885, after a sojourn of nearly three years in Thomasville he moved to Sevvanee, 
Tennessee, and became medical officer of the University of the South, at that place, 
and in August of that year, he was called 10 the chair of Chemistry, Geology and 
Mineralogy in that institution, and which he filled for a little over a year, when he was 
again forced, on account of ill health, to desist from lecturing. He subsequently tin 
1887) occupied the chair of Biology and Microscopy at the University of the South,

teaching until August iSSS. For the last three years of his life he lived in Sevvanee 
practicing his profession, in addition to his teaching. 

From infancy, he was always an invalid, being such a sufferer from Asthma that 
almost all his education and reading was done in his bed, or arm-chair. Even during 
his boyhood he was deeply interested in the study of the microscope, and on entering 
his medical studies, with that indefatigable zeal which characterized his labors, he 
earnestly followed and investigated its application to Physiological and Pathological 
Histology. As a teacher and contributor to microscopic research, he was well known 
both here and abroad. His knowledge of the French and German languages greatly 
facilitated and enlarged his work, and enabled him to present his lectures abreast the 
times. Keenly appreciative of the difficulties of making clear to a medical class, 
many of the laws of Physiology and Physics, he was almost extravagant in procuring 
elaborate illustrations for demonstration in the class-room never hesitating to expend 
nearly his entire private means in purchasing from all sources the latest and most 
approved apparatus, that his lectures should be attractive, lucid, and instructive, and, 
as such they were appreciated by the hundreds of medical men and students who filled 
his class room. 

Dr. Arnold died at Sevvanee, Tennessee, on Oct. 20th, 188S. He leaves a widow 
and two daughters. His remains were brought to New York, and were interred in the 
family plot in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn. 

Mrs. Cornelius Du Bois died in New York October 27, 1888. Probably no 
family in all its generations in this city has been more identified with its commercial, 
social, educational and benevolent institutions than that founded by John Delafield 
in 1783, whose biography was printed in the Record for Oct , 1886, vol. xii., pp. 
245-251. They have exhibited traits of a high-born race, to which he belonged in 
the old world. A son, John, was the founder and first President of the N. Y. State 
Agricultural Society. Another son, Major Joseph, was the President of the Lyceum 
of Natural History for thirty-seven years. Another son, Dr. Edward Delafield, 
became the President of the College of Physicians and Surgeons in this city, founded 
the N. Y. Eye and Ear Infirmary and the Society for the Relief of Widows and 
Orphans of Medical Men. In the third generation, Mary Ann Delafield, the maiden 
name of Mrs. Cornelius Du Bois, has a perpetual memorial in the Nursery and Child's 
Hospital, which, from small beginnings, now occupies extensive buildings at Lexing- 
ton avenue and Fifty-first street, the creation of her indefatigable efforts. She was 
the daughter of John and Mary (Roberts) Delafield, and was born in England Nov. 
6, 1813. She became the wife of Cornelius Du Bois Nov. 6, 1832, and at the time 
of her death had three sons and two daughters : John Delafield Du Bois of Charles- 
ton, West Va. ; Eugene and Cornelius Du Bois of this city ; Mrs. Nicoll Floyd and 
Mrs. John G. Floyd of Long Island. Her remains are in the Du Bois tomb in the 
Marble Cemetery in Second street. High in the roll of the " many daughters " of 
this metropolis who " have done virtuously," her name will never cease to be 

Maturin Livingston, born in the city of New York, died on Thursday. Nov. 
29, 1888, aged 73 years. Two daughters survive him : Mrs. George Cavendish Ben- 
tick and Mrs. Ogden Mills. He was the son of Maturin Livingston and Margaret, 
only daughter of General and Governor Morgan Lewis. Her mother was Gertrude 
Livingston, who was the daughter of Judge Robert R. Livingston and Margaret 
Beekman — ludge Robert R. was the grandson of Robert, who came to America in 
1674, and who was the first " Lord of the Manor of Livingston." Margaret Beekman, 
his wife, was the daughter of Henry Beekman and Janet Livingston : Henry Beek- 
man was the son of Col. Henry, the patentee of Rhinebeck, and grandson of William, 
the American Ancestor of the Beekman family. Maturin Livingston, senior, was a 
delegate to the State Constitutional Convention in 1801, of which Aaron Burr was 
president. He was also recorder in 1804-7 — and County Judge of Dutchess County 
in 1823. The father of Maturin, senior, was Robert James, who married Susan 
Smith — Robert James was the son of James Livingston and Maria Kiersted : James 
was the son of Robert Livingston and Margaret Schuyler. This Robert Livingston 
came to America in 1696 and was the nephew of Robert, the first Lord of the

his second wife, Cornelia, daughter of Judge Abraham Lott of Kings County, who 
had been treasurer of the colony, representative, &c. Miss Sands was a lady of in- 
tellectual attainments, and of a social, charitable disposition. Her relationship with 
the Primes, Rays, Jays and Garrettson<, enabled her to form an enviable social circle, 
such as existed under the old Regime — then impenetrable to mere money and display. 
M«s. Sands' brother, Robert C, was an author of considerable repute and a former 
editor of the Commercial Advertiser, and also, with William Cullen Bryant, editor of 
the New York Review. Comfort Sands, the father, was a noted patriot during the 
Revolutionary War. He kept a store in 1770 on the corner of Peck Slip and Queen, 
now Pearl, Street. In latter years he founded the well-known banking house of 
Prime, Ward, Sands & King. He was one of the committee of 100 in 1775. Auditor 
of State from 1776 to 1782. Member of Second Provincial Congress. Canal Com-

Mrs. Maria Louisa Van Rensselaer, widow of Cornelius Van Rensselaer, 
died at Green Bush, Rensselaer County, New York, on Friday, October 19th, 1888, 
after a brief illness, aged eighty-six years & two months. Her husband, Cor- 
nelius Van Rensselaer, was a son of Col. Nicholas Van Rensselaer who fought on the 
American side at Quebec and at Saratoga, of which latter victory he brought the news y^ 
to Albany. Mrs. Van Rensselaer was the third child of Edmond Charles Genet, Ir 
Ambassador from the first French Republic in 1793, known in American history as 
Citizen Genet, and of Cornelia Clinton, daughter of the American patriot George Clin- 
ton, who for twenty-four years was Governor of this State and died while Vice-Presi- 
dent of the United States. Mrs. Van Rensselaer was baptized at Jamaica, Long 
Island, where she was born Augu .t 14th, 1S02, by the Revd. Mr. Faitout by the name 
of Marie Louise Cardon Vanderquaille, but in an Act of the Legislature of this State 
to facilitate a division of the property of Governor George Clinton among his heirs she 
was named Marie Louisa Genet. When a child she was adopted by her grandfather, 
Governor Clinton, and was at his house at Casperskill on the Hudson with her aunt 
Maria Clinton, when a special messenger brought the news of the last illness of her 
grandfather at Washington. The United States Government offered to defray the 
expenses of his funeral, but this her aunt declined, saying that the Governor's family 
were quite equal to defraying the expense themselves. He was buried in the Congres- 
sional burying ground at Washington. 

Miss Lydia F. Wadleigh, Superintendent of the Normal College of New York, 
died in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 27th, 1888, at the age of 70. Miss Wadleigh 
was a native of Sutton, N. H. She was educated at New Hampton Institute, and 
remained there as a teacher for three years after the completion of her course ; she 
afterwards taught for a short time in Nashua, N. H., and in Freehold, N. J. In 
1856 Miss Wadleigh took charge of the Twelfth Street school for girls, and made it a 
rival and competitor of the best private schools. This celebrated school, at the time 
of its incorporation into the Normal College, about seventeen years ago, had educated 
three hundred graduates. From that time until the end of her life, Miss Wadleigh, 
in conjunction with Dr. Thomas Hunter, its president, devoted herself to the inter- 
ests of that great institution. Hundreds of young women have been brought under 
her beneficial influence. Beyond a weekly lecture on ethics, she gave no direct 
instruction, but confined herself to discipline and supervision, watching over and 
guiding the mental and moral development of her pupils. On Nov. 3d memorial 
exercises were held by the Associate Alumnae in the chapel of the Normal College. 


Ancient Families of Bohemia Manor, Their Homes and Their Graves. 
By Rev. Charles Payson Mallery. Papers of the Historical Society of Delaware, 
VII.— Wilmington, 1888. 

This handsome volume of 74 pages, published by the Historical Society of Dela- 
ware is an exceedingly interesting account of Augustine Herman, his manor, and his

descendants, brief but clear, and evidently the work of an author, not only pleased 
with his subject, but fully capable of treating it well. Mr. Mallery is an Episcopal 
clergyman of West Farms, Westchester county, New York, who seems to have given 
long, close, and unwearied attention to discovering the early history of the man, the 
estate, and the people he speaks of. Herman was a native of Prague, Bohemia, but 
came to New York in the service of the Dutch West India Company in 1633, was 
one of the "Nine men," personally known to Vander Donck, who mentions him in 
his work, and lived on the west side of the present Pearl street, near Pine. He was 
sent by Stuyvesant as one of his envoys to Lord Baltimore to try to settle the 
disputed claims boundary of New Netherland and Maryland on the west side of the 
Delaware river. 

On this occasion he first saw the lands he afterward acquired in that region in 1660, 
about 20,000 acres, to which he gave the name of " Bohemia Manor," and to which he 
removed from New York with his family the next year, and where he died some 
twenty-five years later, in 1686, at about the age of sixty-six years. He was succeeded 
in the manor by his eldest son, Ephraim George, and he, dying without issue, by his 
brother Casparus, and the last named by his only son Col. Ephraim Augustine 
Herman, who married twice and died leaving two daughters by his first marriage, and 
an only child, a son. by his last wife, who died at four years of age, when the males 
of the Herman line became extinct. 

This threw the property into descendants of daughters, and with the families of 
the descendants of these this pamphlet is largely taken up. There the Vanderheydens 
(the last venerable lady of which family bearing the surname, the writer as a youth 
well remembers at her home near Stillwater, N. Y., where she died nearly forty years 
ago), the Oldhams, the Ensors, the Sluyters, the Bouchelles, the Bayards of Dela- 
ware, and the Bassetts, of all of which families accounts are given in a narrative form. 
Sketches of the old homes of some of them, and of the old churches of the neighbor- 
hood, and also of the Labadist settlement and its end, well and agreeably written are 
also given. D.

The present volume of this elaborate work, which is now drawing to an end, 
keeps up the character of its predecessors. The ten steel plate engravings give 
likenesses of Pierce and Polk, presidents ; Seward and Sumner, statesmen ; Gilmore 
Simms and Harriet Beecher Slowe ; Generals Scott, Sherman and Sheridan, and 
Admiral Porter. The system of arranging families under a single name has been 
continued ; and such familiar and well-known names as Schuyler, Roosevelt, Quincy, 
Rutledge, Seabury, Randolph, Robinson and several others receive due attention. 
Perfect accuracy is hardly to be expected in so voluminous a work ; and if there 
be occasional errors in dates or obscurity in historical statements, they are probably 
to be attributed to too confident a following of former writers, which, however, could 
hardly be avoided. To have verified every date and fact would have made the work 
impossible. With the more important articles, however, great pains have been taken. 
The Seabury article, in particular, is worthy of commendation both for its historical 
accuracy and its literary merit. It is to be regretted, however, that m more is told 
of Charles Seabury, who, with learning, ability, energy and devotion to his profession 
not inferior to those of any member of his distinguished family, was content to 
occupy his long life in the modest labors of a rural missionary — not seeking for 
honors or promotion, but honestly doing his Master's work. 

The sixth volume, which will complete the work, will contain a carefully 
prepared and very full index of the various subjects discussed or mentioned in the 
several articles. The practical effect of this will be to make the Cyclopaedia a

( With a Portrait.) 

Read Before the N. Y. Genealogical and Biographical Society, by the 
Reyerend William Jones Seabury, D.D., Dec. 14th, 1888. 

Mr. President, and Ladies and Gentlemen : 

It gives me great pleasure to comply with the invitation to address 
your honorable Society on the subject assigned to me. An opportunity 
is thus afforded for giving some account of the position, character and 
influence of one whose life was unselfishly devoted to the truth, and who 
yet has been deprived of much of the regard justly due to such devotion, 
by the mistakings and misapprehensions of contemporaries, embalmed in 
the perversities of party feelings which survived him, and which, for nearly 
a century kept him as far as possible unrecognized and unhonored. A 
man whose convictions make him obnoxious to the majority of his 
contemporaries, either politically or religiously, — much more both politi- 
cally and religiously — must needs await the judgment of posterity for his 
approval. But history affords many instances which show that if that 
approval be deserved it will ultimately be obtained. 

Samuel Seabury, the subject of the present sketch, was born on St. 
Andrew's day (Nov. 30), 1729, in the village of Groton, separated by the 
Thames from the city of New London. 

I will not trouble you with details of genealogy, but assuming your 
concurrence, as a Genealogical Society, in the principle of heredity, I 
content myself with remarking that Bishop Seabury 's descent may be 
justly credited with the production of the great characteristics which were 
mainly conspicuous in him: characteristics which, deriving their origin 
from diverse and opposing sources, were, nevertheless, so blended in him 
as to produce the force of each and the balance of both. He was by 
descent both a Churchman and a Puritan ; and he always carried the 
mark of this combination, and exemplified it in his unswerving mainte- 
nance of authority, and in his dauntless opposition to injustice and wrong. * 
His lather, though a clergyman of the Church of England, was educated 
foraCongregationalist preacher, and belonged on both sides to the Puritan 

* It is a principle in heraldry, that creatures emblazoned are to be taken as rep- 
resentative of their noble, and not their ignoble qualities : e. g,, the lion, of bravery 
and not of ferocity; the fox, of sagacity and not of deceit, etc. The intelligent 
reader will perceive that I am fain to apply a similar principle in heredity, using the 
Puritan as symbolic of courage, justice and conscientiousness, and not of cunning, 
intolerance and meddlesomeness.

stock, tracing his descent through the female line to John Alden, of the 
Mayflower, and the fair Priscilla, whose shrewd simplicity our Longfellow- 
has immortalized ; his mother was a Mumford, all of whose family and 
ancestors were Churchmen. How far the Rev. Samuel Seabury, M. A., 
the father of the Bishop, may have been affected by the churchly influ- 
ences connected with his marriage I have no means of knowing. But, in 
fact, it was not until after his marriage that he abandoned the position of 
preacher in the Congregational Society, and crossed the ocean to obtain 
episcopal ordination. The original cause of this action however is, no 
doubt, to be found in the example of Johnson, Cutler, and others who, 
not long before, had astounded the rulers of Yale College, and indeed 
New England in general, by denying the authority of a ministry not 
derived by episcopal succession from the Apostles, and accepting the 
orders of the English Church. The controversies which followed this 
step, and the thought and reading to which they led, brought many to 
the same course, and, among others, the young graduate of Harvard who 
was the father of the Bishop, and in whom the seed sown in the days of 
his college life bore fruit in the resolve and action of more mature man- 

Returning from England, after his ordination, as a missionary of the 
venerable Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, he 
was made rector of St. James' Church, New London, which position he 
held until 1742, when he became rector of St. George's Church in Hemp- 
stead, L. I., continuing such until his death in 1764. 

The subject of the present paper would thus appear to have spent the 
years of his boyhood in New London. In 1744, after a couple of years 
in his new home at Hempstead, he entered the freshman class at Yale 
College, graduating in 1748. From this College he afterwards received 
the degree of M. A., which degree was also conferred on him at a later 
period by Columbia, or, as it was then called, King's College. At his 
graduation in his nineteenth year, he already seems to be preparing to 
follow the steps of his father in the ministry, taking charge, under his 
oversight, of the services of the church at Huntington, some twenty miles 
from Hempstead, as a catechist, or, as we would now call him, a lay 
reader, under the appointment of the venerable Society aforesaid. 

He lacked as yet some six years of the age at which he could be 
admitted to priest's orders, and as he could not well take the double 
journey to England, first for deacon's, at twenty-one, and then for priest's 
orders, at twenty-four, he kept on with his theological studies, gaining 
experience in the discharge of his function as catechist, until July, 1752, 
when he embarked for Edinburgh — intending, as his father writes, to 
spend one year there in studying physic and anatomy, and afterwards to 
seek ordination in England. His being a student of medicine in the 
University of Edinburgh — then a distinguished seat of medical learning 
— has led to the question whether his study for the ministry was not the 
result of a change of purpose. It is plain, however, that he was all along 
preparing for the ministry, but that, in pursuance of this design, he 
studied both medicine and theology. Such, it is well known, was the 
practice of many of the colonial missionaries, that they might minister, in 
the scarcity of physicians, to the bodies as well as the souls of men ; and 
in adopting this course it seems not unlikely that the son followed the 
example as well as the precept of his father.

In 1753 the ordinations took place in London — to the diaconate on 
the 2 1 st, and to the priesthood on the 23d of December. Dr. Thomas 
Sherlock, then Bishop of London (of whose father, the Dean of St. Paul's, 
it was said that he was the most distinguished divine in England, except 
his son), was too infirm to officiate personally, and the Bishop of Lincoln 
acted for him in one case, and the Bishop of Carlisle in the other ; but 
the young priest brought back with him Sherlock's license, as the Bishop 
of London, to officiate in New Brunswick, in the province of New Jersey. 

His cure at New Brunswick continued between two and three years 
from May 25th, 1754. He was called to the parish of Jamaica, L. I., 
and inducted thereto by Sir Charles Hardy, the Governor of New York, 
January 12th, 1757. He appeals, however, to have removed to Jamaica 
before his formal induction, and for some time to have visited New 
Brunswick every seventh Sunday. This journey, in the middle of the 
eighteenth century, was of course not what it would be at present. It 
was counted a matter of about forty miles, which, to be sure, was not so 
far, but then it involved the crossing of three ferries — one from Brooklyn 
to New York, one from New York to Staten Island, and one from Staten 
Island up the Raritan to New Brunswick — trips which, in an open boat 
in wintry weather, were somewhat such as some of our Western mission- 
aries in the present day recount to us when they come back to feel for the 
rich sympathies of Eastern congregations. It was on one of these trips 
that our young missionary — about six or seven and twenty he would be 
then — came down to the ferry near the Battery and entered the sail boat 
which was used to carry passengers to Staten Island. The air was black 
with clouds, and a raging storm forbade the trip. The skipper added his 
remonstrances, and, having fortified himself with another element suffi- 
ciently to be averse to water, and to be moreover very pugnacious, he 
asserted his right to be master of his own boat, and stubbornly refused to 
adventure himself on the deep. Whether or not the missionary recalled 
the experience of Julius Cresar under partly similar circumstances, I know 
not ; but he probably thought the skipper would be impervious to the 
application of classical analogies, or indeed of any verbal argument, so he 
laid him down in the bottom of the boat, tied him fast with his own 
ropes, and then, taking the helm himself, steered the boat safely to the 
other side. This is one of several stories related of him illustrative of his 
force of will and physical strength. Though not a passionate man, in the 
sense of being liable to be carried away by anger, he certainly had a high 
spirit, and a most determined will, and these qualities, so apparent in the 
mental contests of maturer years, seem not unnaturally to associate them- 
selves with corporal action in the more impulsive period of earlier man- 
hood. Possibly if Yale College had then given that attention to athletics 
which youthful public opinion has since enforced upon the consideration 
of Academic Faculties, he would have had all the physical development that 
his constitution required before he entered the ministry ; but, failing that, 
his physical energies could only seek the outlets suggested by the tem- 
pers of the natural man. He was possessed of two qualities, however, 
which made it safe for him sometimes thus to fall back upon the state of 
nature. He had unusual muscular strength, and so much power of self- 
control as to be able to stop at the right place in the exercise of it. This 
self-control is said to have been taught him by an experience of his youth, 
in which, in a contest with a fractious animal, he dealt the creature a

blow which so nearly proved fatal, that he was shocked at the possibilities 
involved in any unmeasured exercise of his great power. 

It was about this period of his life, and while he must have been still 
in the habit of taking these triangular trips from Jamaica to New Bruns- 
wick by way of New York and Staten Island, that his marriage occurred. 
He wedded Oct. 12, 1756, Mary, daughter of Edward Hicks, Esquire, of 
New York. There was a touch of romance about this marriage — a dash 
of the same strong will of which we have already seen some traces. Mr. 
Edward Hicks, for some reason or other, did not have the missionary 
interest so much at heart as to be willing to bestow his daughter on the 
missionary. The daughter was more devoted to the cause, and the mis- 
sionary did not consider himself justified in pleasing the father under the 

If you chance to be journeying eastward on the Long Island Railroad 
and look out on your left about a mile beyond the Jamaica station, you 
may see, quite near the railway, the rear of an old yellow painted one-and- 
a-half story house with two wings — the front being on the turnpike — 
which, with its rusty gray barn, looks as if it had remained unchanged 
since the time we are speaking of, a hundred and twenty years* ago. 
Here lived the young missionary of the venerable Society, now settled as 
rector of Jamaica, and charged also with the care of Flushing and New- 
town. This I suppose to be the home-centre of that happy, hospitable 
and useful life of which Bishop Perry has given a pleasing picture, sketch- 
ing, in his graceful way, this part of the life which we are following. With 
a house of his own, and a manageable little farm of 28 acres (for the par- 
son of those days was not only doctor, and perhaps school-master, but also 
sometimes farmer as well), with a career ol influence and usefulness open- 
ing and enlarging before him, and with a tender and affectionate family 
beginning to grow up around him, why should not the humble home of 
the rector of Jamaica have been a happy spot? Yet he had his trials. 
His ministry was hard and yielded but little apparent fruit. The Quakers 
had possessed the land before him, and the generation amidst which 
he labored had been educated in the belief that the sacraments of the 
Church were idle inventions, and that the ministry were hirelings. The 
harmony of the parish was also marred by the intrusion of one of his fel- 
low missionaries, who officiated in an underhand and unauthorized man- 
ner, and whose course was sustained by one of his influential parishioners 
in Flushing. This was the cause of serious trouble. So also were the 
divisions, doubts and defections caused by that ecclesiastical comet White- 
field, who about this time again beamed in the American firmament with 
his self-magnifying new light. Altogether the rectorate of Jamaica was 
not quite a bed of roses, and the rector was forced into several controver- 
sies which sharpened his pen for the use which later developments obliged 
him to make of it, in weightier matteis. 

It was toward the close of his incumbency at Jamaica, that he joined 
in the effort to organize a regular convention of the Church of England 

* This, however, is not the old house. Mr. Seabury's house stood until 1S41, when 
Mr. Walter Nichols, to whom it belonged at that time and to whom it had become 
odious by reason of the death in it of his only daughter under peculiarly distressing 
circumstances, pulled it down, and built the present one. The child, Agnes Nichols, 
a girl of twelve years old, was attacked on her father's lawn by wandering dogs and 
literally bitten to death. — Ed.

clergy in the province of New York, which held its first meeting May 24th, 
1766, and of which he was made secretary. This body was, I believe, the 
first formal convention of the Church in any of the provinces. It may 
be said to have contained the germ — rather, perhaps, to have been the 
prototype — of the diocesan conventions which, after the Revolution, 
came into existence as conventions of the Church in the several States, 
although continuity was broken by the war. It was to meet annually, 
and a standing committee was to conduct its affairs ad interim. Some 
of the clergy of Connecticut and New Jersey were included, and 
allowed to vote. This, however, was matter of courtesy, and the 
extension of membership was, I suspect, chiefly due to the value of the 
Rev. Drs. Johnson of Connecticut, and Chandler of New Jersey — men of 
so much power and influence that they could not be spared from the 
councils of their friends and associates in New York. Certainly, so far as 
concerned the Communion to which it belonged, the body, while it 
lasted, was a regular ecclesiastical convention of New York, although, of 
course, it did not include the membership of laymen — the "Order of 
the Laity,'' not having been as yet evoked by the genius of popular gov- 

An effort on the part of this body to promote the long-desired pro- 
curement of Bishops for this country roused, as usual, the ire of leading 
men of the Puritan succession ; and the official position of the secretary, 
as well as his personal advocacy of the obnoxious measure concentrated a 
good deal of that ire upon him. Instead of attempting to lead you 
through the bitter controversies which prevailed at this period, let me 
rather remind you, as throwing light upon the life which we are follow- 
ing, of the reason of their prevalence. 

The principle of the Anglican Church that a valid commission to the 
ministry requires episcopal ordination, made it incumbent upon those in 
■the colonies who sought the ministry of the Church of England, to cross 
the ocean for ordination, until a Bishop or Bishops should be settled in 
this country. I need not enlarge upon the hardships, involved in the 
want of Bishops, to those who believed in the principle — so great that 
it was estimated that not more than four out of five of those who under- 
took this journey ever returned from it — nor to the body, which was 
denied the possession of that which was essential to its constitution. On 
the other hand it is equally obvious that those who did not believe in the 
necessity of episcopacy either to the being or well-being of the Church, 
who associated the very name of it with tyranny and taxation, and who 
had no conception of the possibility of its existence as a spiritual authority, 
independent on a legal establishment, would look upon the prospect of 
its introduction among them with disgust. So the Churchmen were 
charged with toryism, and the desire to subject the colonies to the arbi- 
trary power of episcopal court minions ; while the Churchmen in reply 
charged their opponents with aiming at the subversion of the civil gov- 
ernment under cover of objection to episcopacy, and of designing nothing 
less than the ultimate establishment of a rule as independent on kings as 
on Bishops. The Church of England men, however, were in the mini rity 
in the colonies, and their principles — at least under the shadow of New- 
England Puritanism — the object of distrust and hatred ; and whenever 
the plea for episcopacy appeared, the champions of the popular orthodoxy 
stood ready to plant the foot upon it. 

ca Sketch of Bishop Seabury. [April, 

It was partly owing to the method by which this plea was cried down, 
and the nature of the arguments used' against it, that the cause of episco- 
pacy came to be so strongly associated in the mind both of its advocates 
and opponents, with the cause of the British Government in the colonies. 
The experience of a century has proved that episcopacy can subsist inde- 
pendently of any civil establishment. But the case was not then so under- 
stood by its opponents. The dread that the British Government might 
establish Bishops among them was a vital apprehension, and such estab- 
lishment was regarded as a probable instance of the exercise of that tyran- 
nical power which the writers and orators of the day were beginning to 
denounce. "If Parliament," said John Adams, "could tax us, they 
could establish the Church of England, with all its creeds, articles, texts, 
ceremonies, and tithes, and prohibit all other churches as conventicles 
and schism shops." * Independence, too, was explicitly urged as a means of 
escape from the dreaded evil. Judge Thomas Jones, in the curious His- 
tory edited by Mr. De Lancey, quotes the American Whig as foretelling 
so early as 1769, the establishment of an independent Empire, "deserted 
of all control of bishops, the curse of curses, and from the subjection of 
all earthly kings." (I. 24.) 

The effect of this apprehension was visible in two ways. It stimulated 
the desire for independence on one side, and strengthened the conserva- 
tism on the other — this as matter of course. But beyond this it had the 
effect of making the British Government timid about carrying out such 
a policy as would have been naturally expected from its alliance with the 
Church, and hence of making it more earnest to please its enemies than 
to oblige its friends in the colonies — a disposition which survived for some 
time the conclusion of the Revolutionary War. 

I am not to discuss, of course, the causes of the American Revolution : 
but I am concerned to call attention to this one, because it explains the 
position of conservative Churchmen, and the feeling, which was abun- 
dantly manifest in them, that the battle of the Church was also the battle 
of the Crown. 

Under the influence of this feeling the subject of the present sketch 
entered into a compact with the Rev. Drs. Chandler of New Jersey, and 
Inglis, rector of Trinity Church, New York (and afterwards first Bishop of 
Nova Scotia), to watch all publications either in newspapers or pamphlets, 
and to obviate die evil influence of such as appeared to have a bad ten- 
dency by the speediest answers. A series of papers resulted from this 
combination, which, among other consequences, produced a personal 
attack in one of the journals of the day upon Mr. S — b — r — y, from an 
author who, by the initials " B. W. ," sought to give what was afterwards 
proved to be the false impression, that he was the Hon. Benning Went- 
worth, Governor of New Hampshire, the fact being that he was an emi- 
nent New England divine. The episode well illustrates the spirit and 
discretion of the party attacked: and his bold and direct dealing with the 
question of the signature shows the courage and truthfulness which were 
the foundation of his course through life. This was about 1768. In the 
meantime he had resigned his position at Jamaica, and had become 
rector of St. Peter's, Westchester, a position which he held from Decem- 
ber 3d, 1766, until he was driven out of the parish some ten years after at 
the breaking out of the war. Here he was still within about twenty miles

of New York, so that he was able to continue his connection with the 
churchly and political associations which clustered about that city ; and 
here he added to the list of his lifelong friends and fellow-workers the 
distinguished Isaac Wilkins, a representative of Westchester in the Legis- 
lature of the Province, and a most able and efficient supporter of the 
cause to which they were both devoted. In the Wilkins mansion, under 
a trap door through which their food was conveyed to them, lay concealed 
for three days the rector of Westchester and his friends, Dr. Chandler, 
and Dr. Cooper, President of King's College, who had all become so 
odious to the patriots of the day that they could not remain unmolested. 
Wilkins himself was finally obliged to sail for England, as did also Chand- 
ler and Cooper.- The rector, however, stood his ground until, in 
November, 1775, he was deprived of his freedom — by the Sons of Liberty ! 

He was absent from home a little way, engaged at the school which, 
like his father, he had been obliged to add to his other labors, when he was 
informed of the occupation of the rectory by a band of armed men under 
the notorious Sears. They rummaged his papers, damaged his property, 
stole his money, insulted his family, and were only hindered from offer- 
ing violence to himself when he came in by a certain presence that he 
had, and which showed the marauders that it would be wiser to respect 
his person. Upon a demand from Sears that he would mount one of the 
horses of his band and come with him, he calmly ordered his own horse 
to be brought, informing Sears that he would go with him, but that he 
should go in his own way. Under the escort of this band he rode to 
New Haven, where he was confined for six weeks, and then set free only 
upon the requisition of the Governor of New York upon the Governor of 
Connecticut for the release of a citizen taken from his own Province 
without process of law. 

The position of the rector of Westchester was held by a large propor- 
tion of his fellow-Churchmen in the Northern colonies, nor were they in 
general half-hearted in throwing their influence against the claims of 
voluntary committees and congresses, and in favor of what was still the 
action of legitimate authority, although charged to be unjust. Each in 
his own measure suffered the penalty of opposition to the prevailing sen- 
timent of the day. But mighty men, says the wise man, shall be mightily 
tormented ; and for the rector of Westchester no ordinary punishment of 
coldness and disapproval could be thought sufficient. He was a mighty 
man and mightily in earnest. But the particular thing which made him 
utterly detestable to the Revolutionary party was his authorship of a 
series of pamphlets published in the end of the year 1774 under the sig- 
nature of A. W. Farmer, in which he arraigned the Congress and its 
supporters, and attacked with unsparing hand the measures to which it 
was committing the country. The first of these was entitled Free 
Thoughts on the Proceedings of the Congress ; the second, The 
Congress Canvassed ; and the third, A View of the Controversy 
Between Great Britain and her Colonies. The first of these pamphlets 
was answered by the youthful Alexander Hamilton, just then completing 
his academic course at King's College, under the name of A Friend to 
America ; and from the same hand came another pamphlet, entitled 
The Farmer Refuted, which appeared in the early part of the year 1775, 
after the Farmer's third publication, and which concluded the series. 
Whether the Farmer's granary were exhausted; or whether he felt that the

case had been so fully and fairly stated on both sides that it might be trusted 
with the public as it stood; or whether, again, his hands were so full with 
other matters — particularly the effort to influence the Colonial Legis- 
lature then holding its last session — that he postponed his reply until his 
apprehension by Sears, who had already sacked the Rivington printing- 
house in which both sets of pamphlets had been published, I cannot tell. 
This latter proceeding, Chief Justice Shea remarks in his delightful Life 
of Hamilton, was simply the end of controversy between the Westchester 
Farmer and his antagonist* 

Returning from his New Haven captivity in the end of the year 1775, 
the rector vainly strove to restore the order of his parochial life, intend- 
ing — though hostilities had begun, and the pickets of the insurgents lined 
the shore on one side of him, and their intrenchments were within two 
miles of him on the other side — to remain at his post unless he should be 
forcibly ejected. He was now often visited by detachments of the Amer- 
ican arm)', who seemed to take pleasure in going out of their way to 
insult him, by reviling the King, the Parliament, Lord North, the 
Church, the Bishops, the Clergy, and, above all, that vilest of all miscreants, 
A. W. Farmer ! One would give a hundred dollars to know who he was, 
that he might thrust his bayonet into his heart ; another would crawl fifty 
miles to see him roasted — and so on. All this he bore patiently ; but 
when, as he writes, the grand congress at Philadelphia declared Inde- 
pendency, and the petty congress at New York published an edict making 
it death to aid or abet the King, or any of his friends, about fifty armed 
men being now stationed in his neighborhood, he thought the least 
culpable course open to him was not to go to church ; and, ordering the 
sexton to tell any person who should inquire, that, until he could pray 
for the King and do his duty according to the rubric and the canons, 
there would be neither prayers nor sermon, he withdrew to New York. 
Here he resided throughout the war, serving, under commission of Sir 
Henry Clinton, as chaplain of the King's American regiment commanded 
by Col. Fanning, and engaging also, for the better support of his family, 
in the regular practice of medicine. Two printed sermons are extant 
preached by him at this period : one before Gov. Tryon, and the other 
before the Grand Lodge of Free Masons, of which order he was a member. 
In the year 1777 he was honored by the University of Oxford with the 
degree of Doctor of Divinity. 

The Church in each of the colonies had always been distinct from that 
in every other, yet all had been under the common episcopal jurisdiction 
of the Bishop of London. That jurisdiction, after the colonies had been 
recognized as independent States, could no longer be exercised ; and the 
question pressed how the loss of it was to be made good. Some pro- 
posed, as Bishop White quaintly observes in his memoirs, that a head 
should be sought under which the several members might be united ; 
others said, rather let the scattered members be gathered together and 
then let the head be superadded. 

The clergy of the Church in Connecticut were devoted to the former 
policy ; and, in pursuance of their election, made at a meeting held at 
Woodbury, on Annunciation Day (March 25), 17S3, Dr. Seabury, forti-

fied by suitable testimonials signed by the chief clergy of New York, as 
well as authenticated by the secretary of the Connecticut Convention, set 
sail for England to ask from its Bishops that they would confer upon the 
Church in Connecticut, through him, the gilt of the episcopate. Now 
that the British Government was no longer under obligation to make 
itself agreeable to the opponents of episcopacy, the Connecticut clergy 
thought there could be no objection to the granting of their request. So 
plain did the case appear to them that they acted on the very first recog- 
nition of the States, even before the Congress ratified the articles of peace ; 
the Bishop-elect embarking seven months before the evacuation of New 
York by the British forces. Rendered cautious, however, by their long 
experience of disappointment in this matter, they expressly charged the 
object of their choice that if he found it impossible to obtain consecration 
from the English Bishops, he should seek it from the Scottish Bishops,* 
who, although deprived of their temporalities on account of their adher- 
ence to the House of Stuart, had nevertheless retained the episcopate by 
regular and unbroken succession from the same stock from which the 
English Bishops had derived theirs. This charge the Bishop-elect was 
finally obliged to comply with ; for after a weary waiting of sixteen 
months for the action which was always held in encouraging expectance 
but never performed, he at last set out for Aberdeen, where, on the 14th 
of November, 1784, he was consecrated by Robert Kilgour, Bishop of 
Aberdeen and Primus : Arthur Petrie, Bishop of Ross and Moray ; and 
John Skinner, Bishop Coadjutor of Aberdeen. 

The failure of the English Bishops to consecrate Dr. Seabury, and 
the fact that those who did consecrate him were under the ban of an 
adverse public opinion backed by severe penal laws, could not fail to 
subject him to some disparagement on the part of thobe who were 
ignorant or careless of the principles involved in his case. 

In respect of Church principles of order and jurisdiction, however, and 
indeed in every respect, except that of worfdly affluence and influence, 
there is no point of comparison between the Scotch and English lines in 
which the Scotch does not appear to equal, if not superior advantage ; 
and to the Scotch line will ever belong the honor of having consecrated 
not only the first Bishop of the Anglican Communion having jurisdiction 
on the American Continent, but also the first of the nobie army of 
Missionary Bishops, who have since borne the witness of that Com- 
munion throughout the world. 

The reasons why the English Bishops did not act in the matter are 
plain enough to one familiar with their position. Various difficulties 
were suggested, but after all the main point was that, legally, they could 
not act. The consecration included the oath of allegiance, which could 

*See letter of Rev. D. Fogg, July 14th, 1783, printed by Dr. Beardsley {Life of 
Bishop Seabury, p. 103). 

Dean "Burgon, in the last (alas !) of his noble works {Lives of XLL Good Men, 
Vol. I. app. C.), argues that Seabury received his first impulse toward the Scottish 
Bishops from the venerable Routh of Magdalen College, Oxford ; yet rather incon- 
sistently with his own admission, that the idea of application to Scotland was not 
necessarily the exclusive conception of any one mind. There is good evidence that 
Routh suggested the idea to Seabury. There is good evidence also that instructions 
to the same effect had already been given to him. There is no sufficient evidence 
that lie had not received those instructions. This is an inference, which appears to 
depend not upon the evidence, but upon the Dean's view of the evidence.

not be taken by one who was to exercise his office in a foreign State. 
The Bishops could not dispense with the oath ; the King and Privy 
Council would not ; and the Parliament did not legislate the obligation 
out of existence till two years or more after the Scotchmen had shown 
that it was not necessary that they should. Then the English Bishops 
consecrated Bishop White for Pennsylvania, and Bishop Provoost for 
New York ; ungenerously, however, leaving them under at least a tacit * 
obligation not to unite with the Bishop of Connecticut in perpetuating 
the long-coveted succession in the States until another Bishop should be 
consecrated in England to make up the number of three required by 
canon for a regular consecration ; so that the American episcopate might 
always be said to be derived from the English as distinguished from the 
Scotch line ; for which reason Dr. Madison afterwards went over to be 
consecrated Bishop for Virginia. But men who plan history do not 
always remember that the Providence of God guides it. These three 
Bishops and the Bishop of Connecticut united in the consecration of Dr. 
Claggett as Bishop of Maryland. This was the only consecration that 
the Bishop of Connecticut ever participated in. But every subsequent 
Bishop in the American line is obliged to trace his succession through 
Bishop Claggett, in doing which he necessarily traces his line through 
the Scotch, as well as through the English line. 

Returning from his consecration, Bishop Seabury landed at Newport, 
after a voyage of three months, on the 20th June, 1785, preaching on the fol- 
lowing Sunday in Dr. Berkeley's pulpit at Trinity Church. f His reception 
in Connecticut was all that he could wish, the laity uniting with the clergy 
in recognition of his authority, and in such support as their power permitted. 
The opponents of episcopacy who had dreaded the introduction of a 
Bishop with a lordly revenue must have been disappointed, for the 
financial question was a serious one to this Bishop. His own means, 
never large, had been quite exhausted by his long sojourn abroad. The

And many fine things we receive from her isle ;

venerable Society withdrew its stipend from him, as from all its mission- 
aries in the States ; and the half-pay to which he was entitled as a chap- 
lain retired from service in the British Army was all that he could depend 
upon with certainty. God's providence, however, as the legend runs on 
the old Chester house, was his inheritance ; and he was content with it. 
He derived some income from English friends of an American episcopate, 
and some also from St. James' Church, New London, which he served as 
rector during the rest of his life, and whose modest frame parsonage con- 
stituted his " episcopal palace." So far, however, as worldiy surround- 
ings were concerned, they were indeed plain enough — -though Peter Parley 
has recorded that he always rode in a coach. But there was an intrinsic 
dignity about him, born of his physical, mental and moral power, and his 
high conception of the spiritual character of his office, which well enabled 
him to dispense with adventitious supports ; and, straitened as were his 
earthly means, he could yet lay up some treasure in Heaven by his care 
of God's poor, whose tears flowed beside his grave, and who mourned 
him not only as their friend and pastor, but also as their physician. 

He was about fifty-five years of age when he was consecrated, and he 
exercised his episcopal office somewhat less than eleven years. It was the 
hardest part of his life. The cares of the episcopate to a faithful man are 
never light, but in his situation the burden was very heavy. Devoted as 
he was to principles which to some minds may seem mere theories, he 
was nevertheless intensely practical in the application of those principles. 
He addressed himself to every detail of episcopal duty day by day, and it 
is easy to imagine that as his position was unique in fact — he being the 
first, and for nearly three years the only Bishop in the States — so it was 
unique in the duty and responsibility which it imposed upon him. Doc- 
trine was to be re-stated, discipline to be revived, forms of worship to be 
revised, principles asserted, misapprehensions corrected, attacks parried, 
dangers averted, slanders and misrepresentations to be lived down. It 
would be impossible, without going into explanations too long for this 
occasion, to convey an idea of what he was enabled to accomplish during 
the very short term of his episcopate. He left a mark upon the Church, 
however, which it has ever since borne, and which it can never safely cease 
to bear. His episcopal ministrations, except it might be upon invitation, 
were confined to the State of Connecticut, and afterwards of Rhode Island, 
whose Churchmen placed themselves under his jurisdiction, but his counsel 
was largely sought. In the progress of the organization of the Federated 
system of the Church in the States of the Union of which by seniority of con- 
secration he was the first Presiding Bishop, and in the settlement of the 
Constitution of 1789 to which the General Convention owes its authority, as 
well as in the guidance and direction of the revision of the Book of Com- 
mon Prayer, his influence was not only weighty but also characteristic. 

The process of organization of the General Convention lasted about 
five years, beginning more than a year after the independent action of the 
Connecticut Church in the election of their Bishop, and about six months 
before his consecration, and concluding in 1789. The system was largely 
an adaptation of the politv of the Church — so far as it was subject to 
human arrangement — to the polity of the civil government ; particularly 
in respect to the provision for a general legislature combining a represen- 
tation of the body of the Church in each State as such (or as we now have 
it of dioceses), with the representation of a more diffused and popular 
constituency, accomplished by the requirement of a concurrent vote of

clerical and of lay delegates, not necessarily identical with the vote of the 

The venerable Bishop White, whose name is justly honored wherever 
it is spoken, was the author of this ingenious adaptation, as well as the 
father of the whole conventional system by which the federation of the 
Churches in all the States of the Union was finally accomplished. Bishop 
Seabury was very desirous from the beginning for a union of the Churches 
in the States, but he preferred one rather upon the primitive basis of a 
united episcopate acting with the counsel and concurrence of the Pres- 
byters, but without the admission of the laity to a share either injudicial 
or legislative functions — although he was willing to concede to the laity 
a share in the choice of their Bishop.* Finding the conventional system, 
however, to be preferred by the greater number, he yielded his own wishes, 
and faithfully co-operated in the endeavor to establish it. But it was 
insisted on as the condition of the accession of Connecticut to the Con- 
stitution, that the right of the Bishops as a separate house to originate 
and propose measures equally with the house of clerical and lay deputies 
should be recognized. The amendment by which this was to be effected 
raised the House of Bishops from a mere House of Revision to the posi- 
tion of a co-ordinate branch of the supreme legislature. 

Now, when the House of Bishops numbers about seventy, it seems 
like recurring to a day of small things to remember that the first House, a 
century ago, consisted only of the three Bishops, Seabury, White, and 
Provoost ; and that the first meeting of that House included only two 
members, as Bishop Provoost was absent. Yet this small meeting did the 
greatest work ever accomplished by that House : for it was a work of 
foundation for their successors to build upon. And the day of small 
things is not to be despised : for it may well be doubted if those founda- 
tions would ever have been laid without the characteristic contributions 
of those two men, unhindered by others who might have marred the har- 
mony subsisting between them, — a harmony the more remarkable from 
the fact that they looked at some matters from differerent points of view. 
Many years afterward Bishop White expressed himself as recalling with 
pleasure the hours spent in this deliberation with Bishop Seabury, and 
testified to the harmony which marked it. 

One incident I take pleasure in mentioning, because it shows not 
only the Christian courtesy of Bishop White, but also his superiority to 
the prejudice, not then quite outgrown in some quarters against Bishop 
Seabury 's Scottish consecration. I said that Bishop Seabury was the first 
Presiding Bishop by seniority of consecration. This, however, was not 
by his own claim, but on the motion of Bishop White, who desired in 
the beginning to have the principle settled that precedence should depend 
on seniority of consecration. At the next meeting of the General Con- 
vention (1792), however, the rule was changed, although restored some 
years after Bishop Seabury's death. 

The entry in Bishop Seabury's private journal in regard to the action 
of the House in 1792 is as follows : " This agreement, " i. e., that between 
Bishop White and himself at the previous session, " seemed to be dis- 
pleasing to Bishops Provoost and Madison ; and it was proposed by them 
that the presidency should go by rotation beginning from the north. I 
had no inclination to contend who should be the greatest in the kingdom

1836), pp. 286-292.

of heaven, and therefore readily consented to relinquish the presidency 
into the hands of Bishop Provoost. I thank God for his grace on this 
occasion, and beseech him that no self-exaltation, or envy of others may 
ever lead me into debate and contention, but that I may ever be willing 
to be the least, when the peace of his church requires it. Amen." 

Beside the effects of influence visible in the system and worship of the 
Church, there are many personal memorials of the subject of our sketch. 
His publications were numerous, although for the most part occasional. 
Two volumes of sermons published during his life, and one after his 
death, are the most permanent and valuable of his contributions to theo- 
logical literature.* 

His life has been well and carefully written by the Rev. Dr. Beardsley, 
of New Haven. 

The hundredth anniversary of his consecration was celebrated in 1884, 
by memorial services and other appropriate exercises, in Aberdeen and 
throughout Scotland ; in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, with a never-to-be- 
forgotten service, and a sermon by the Archbishop of Canterbury, which 
was historically significant as the first official recognition of his consecra- 
tion on the part of the English episcopate ; and by the formal action of 
the General Convention, as well as many special services in this country, 

His portrait, painted by Duche, a son of the Rev. Jacob Duche, the 
first officiating chaplain of the Continental Congress, and a pupil of Ben- 
jamin West, who is said to have lent his hand to its finishing touches, 
hangs now in the library of Trinity College, Hartford, and is the original 
of Sharp's spirited engraving, by which he is most generally known. Two 
other original portraits are preserved in his family, one by Earle, the other 
by an unknown artist. 

Another interesting memorial, which is preserved in Trinity College 
is the mitre which he was accustomed to wear in the exercise of episcopal 
functions. It is curious to notice with what different feelings men view 
such things as these. To Bishop Coxe. in the fervor of the poetic 
youth which produced the Christian Ballads, this was a sacred relic! To 
Dean Stanley, in his visit to this country a few years since, it was a 
grotesque survival of antiquated absurdity. The Dean was extremely 
amused with it. The moment I was presented to him he went off into 
gentle ripples of hilarity at the remembrance of his recent inspection of 
it. The amiable gentleman probably never had seen a mitre except on 
the recumbent effigies in his ancient abbey, and he doubtless associaied 
this one with a petrified Christianity — in which I trust you will agree 
with me that he was quite mistaken. 

The Bishop's family consisted of three daughters and four sons. The 
only son, however, by whom his name was perpetuated was the youngest, 
named Charles, for his friend Inglis, ordained by Bishop Seabury to the dia- 
conate, and by Bishop Provoost to the priesthood ; and who, after succeed- 
ing his father as rector of St. James' Church, New London, spent the last 
thirty years of his life as rector of Caroline Church, Setauket, — a rare com- 
bination of nature and of grace, whom a member of yours, Mr. William 
Alfred Jones, with one of the happy touches of his graphic pen, has char- 
acterized as "a clergyman of the Vicar of Wakefield and Parson Adams 
stamp." f Three sens survived the Rev. Charles, the oldest of whom bore

and added lustre to the Bishop's name ; and at his death, in 1872, com- 
pleted the 140th year in which, by the divine blessing, the ministry had been 
handed down through four successive descents to the present generation. 

Bishop Seabury died very suddenly, while spending the evening with 
Mr. Rosewell Saltonstall, the father-in-law of his son Charles, on the 25th 
of February, 1796, in the sixty-seventh year of his age, and was interred 
in the New London burying-ground. In the year 1849, on the com- 
pletion of the new St. James' Church, his remains were reverently disin- 
terred and placed beneath an altar tomb erected beside the chancel. A 
plain slab of marble which had lain over his grave, the epitaph having 
been composed by the Rev. Dr. John Bowden, was removed and placed 
in a room beneath the church ; and the altar tomb was adorned with an 
inscription in Latin, by that most elegant of American scholars, the Rev. 
Dr. Samuel Farmer Jarvis. 

One incident in the solemn scene of disinterment made a deep im- 
pression upon my childish memory, and has always possessed for me a 
beautiful significance. The massive framework of the man was com- 
plete in its preservation ; but the coffin which contained it had all moul- 
dered into dust, except a part of the oaken cover, which, marked off by 
nails into the form of a heart, and marked in the centre in the same wa\ 
with the initials S. S., had incorruptibly withstood the progress of dis- 

Yes — without doubt, the heart of oak sustains the character whose 
work endures the test of time ; and the nails of suffering for the truth's 
sake are the best bolts to hold a name, in everlasting remembrance. 


By Pierce Stevens Hamilton of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. 

I have never seen any publication of the genealogy of Alexander 
Hamilton, so famed from the Revolutionary epoch of the United States 
history. So far as I have seen, at least, all his biographers merely state 
that he was of Scottish lineage, or that he belonged to the family of 
•'Hamiltons of Grange." It might be of interest to the readers of the 
Record to see the genealogy of Alexander Hamilton, so far as it is trace- 
able. I therefore submit for publication the following genealogy of that 
distinguished man, from reliable records in my possession. 

Tracing back, or upwards, then — 
Alexander Hamilton, born on the island of Nevis, W. I., on the nth 

January, 1757; was the son of 
James Hamilton, described as "a proprietor in the West Indies ; " who 

was fourth son of 
Alexander Hamilton, of Grange, Scot'and : who was the son of 

* The family of Alexander Hamilton, of Grange, and his wife Elizabeth (eldest 
daughter of Sir Robert Pollock) were : John, Robert, Alexander, Janus, Walter, 
George. William. Joseph, and two daughters, one of whom was Elizabeth, wife of 
Alexander Blair, Esq. 

The authentic Coat of Arms of the Hamiltons of Grange is : Gules, a lion rampant 
argent, betwixt three cinquefoils ermine. Crest, an oak tree proper. Motto, in an 
escroll above, " Viridis et fructifera" — Arthur Wem worth Hamilton Eaton.

Hamilton, the Dukes of Abercorn, Earls of Haddington, Viscounts 
Boyne, Barons Belhaven, several extinct peerages, and of all the 
Scottish and Irish Hamilton families. This Gilbert De Hamilton 
made the funeral oration upon King Robert Bruce. He was the son of 

William De Hamilton, who took his designation from the manor of 
Hambledon, in Uuckshire, England, where he was born. He was the 
third son of 

Robert De Blanchemains, third Earl of Leicester, who figured prom- 
inently in the contentions between Henry II. and his, son. He 
died in 11 90 ; and was the son of 

Robert De Bellomont, surnamed Bossu, 2d Earl of Leicester, was

Normandy. Rollo. previously to his decease, named him Governor 

to his son, Duke William. In the year 912, Bernard married Sphreta

Thus we find that General Alexander Hamilton, of the United States 
Revolutionary Army, was the twenty-seventh in direct and unbroken 
descent from Bernard, the near relative, trusted friend, and brother 
Viking of the celebrated Northman, or Norman leader of men, Rollo, or 

Whilst the subject is in hand, let us try Hamilton's genealogy in an- 
other direction. Note above the name of Elizabeth Isabella, countess of 
Mellent, wife of Robert Earl of Mellent and first Earl of Leicester, the 
common ancestress of all the Hamiltons and all the Beaumonts. Let us 
trace back her genealogy. The historian Gibbon is here my authority : 
Elizabeth Isabella, Countess of Mellent, was the daughter of 
Hugh, surnamed Magnus, Earl of Vermandois, Valois, Chaumont, and 

Amiens ; who was a younger son of 
Henry I., King of France and of his Queen; which latter was the 

daughter of 
Jeroslaus, Czar of Russia ; who was the son of 
Princess Anne, and of Wolodomir, Czar, or Grand Duke of Russia, and 

also the Apostle who first rudely and summarily converted his 

Russian subjects to Christianity. This Princess Anne was the second 

daughter of 
Roman us II., Emperor of the Eastern or Graeco-Roman Empire. He 

was the son of 
Constantine VII., Emperor as above ; who was the son of 
Leo A' 1., Emperor : who was the son of 
Basil I., Emperor, known in history as "the Macedonian," and founder 

of a dynasty of Roman Emperors. 
On the paternal side, according to Gibbon (" Decline and Fall, etc."), 
this Emperor Basil was a descendant of the Royal Parthian family of the 
Arsacides. The mother of Basil "was pleased to count among her 
ancestors the Great Constantine ; and their royal infant was connected by 
some dark affinity of lineage, or country, with the Macedonian Alexander." 
If Basil was a scion of the Parthian dynasty of the Arsacides — as would 
seem to be the case according to Gibbon's authorities — this would carry 
back his genealogy, and that of all who claim descent from him, to nearly 
three hundred years before the Christian era. 

Let us try again. — Note the name Wolodomir, Czar of Russia, named 
above. This 

Wolodomir was the son of 
Swatoslaus ; who was the son of 
Igor ; who was the son of 
Rurick ; who was really of the same race as Rollo, Bernard, and the other 

Normans more particularly so called ; and who was the founder 

of the first Russian monarchy.

Names of streets, squares, places, parks, in New York City, are histor-

they are sources of family history and of the history of real estate — we have 
made up a table, by no means perfect, in which the origin of these names 
is deduced from obvious sources, and as a matter of curiosity and interest, 
especially to the few old New Yorkers left and to their descendants, present

Very few streets or places are named after classical names, literary or

I think there is some mistake in this statement, for while in England 
recently, I visited the village of Choulderton for the purpose of looking 
over the parish register. Through the kindness of the rector, the Rev. 
Edwin P. Barrows, I was shown the oldest record book of the parish ; it 
is the size of a i6mo volume, about an inch in thickness, covered with 
heavy leather, and is in a good state of preservation, being kept under 
lock and key in a safe in the rector's study. 

At the head of the first page is the word " Burials," and directly 
underneath the first entry are those of William Noyes, who is said to have 
died in 1616, and of his son Nathan. These entries are given at length 
in the extracts which follow, and which include all the entries of burials,

By Thomas H. Edsall. 

Among my notes, I find the following transcripts of inscriptions on old 
grave stones, taken in April, 1881, in an ancient and long disused burial 
place on the Van Cortlandt estate, near the station of that name on the 
N. Y. City & Northern R.R. I believe this to have been the family bury- 

68 Old Burial Grounds In Westchester Co., N. V. [April, 

ing ground of the families of Betts and Tippett when they owned and 
occupied the land of which that estate is a part, in the 17th century. 
The old Van Cortlandt mansion stood about one hundred yards from it 
until it was torn down about seventy years ago. 

On a prostrate, broken marble slab : "In memory of Phebe, wife of 
John Bashford, who departed this life October 17, 1805, aged 37 years, 

9 months, and 7 days." 

On a broken fragment of marble: " In memory of Hannah * * * 
of John Bashford, who departed this life Sep. 27, 1805, aged 34 years and 

10 months." 

On a brown sand stone slab, standing: "In memory of William 
Ackerman * * " 

On well preserved brown sand stone slabs standing side by side : "In 
memory of Dorcas Berrian who died February 20, 1794. aged 66 years, 3 
months, and 22 days ; " and, "In memory of Samuel Berrian, who died 
June 26, 1795, aged 75 years, 2 months, and 4 days." 

The last two were grand-parents of the Rev. William Berrian, d.d., 
late Rector of Trinity Church and its historian. The grandmother, Dor- 
cas, was a daughter of George Tippett, owner of Tippett's Neck (Spuyten 
Duyvil), a loyalist who is said to have migrated to Nova Scotia at the 
close ol the Revolutionary war. Samuel Berrian purchased his estate and 
resided upon it until his death. 

He was descended from Cornelis Jansen Berrien, a Huguenot, and 
Jannetie Stryker, dau. of Jan. by the marriage of their son John with his 
step-sister Ruth Edsall, April 5, 1697, who had is tie Cornelius, mar. 
Dec. 29, 1 71 9, Sarah Hallett and had Samuel who d. lit supra. 

Where Sedgwick Avenue intersected it, on the slope of Fordham 
Heights, was another old abandoned burial place, partly overrun by the 
Avenue. The following data were copied in 188 1 : 

" John Berrien, d. Jan. 30, 1836. aged 49 v. n mo. 11 d." 

" Peter Valentine, d. April 22, 18 10. aged 74 y. 3 m. 20 d." 

" Mary Valentine, d. June 2, 1834. aged 85 y. 10 m. 27 d." 

" Nicholas Berrien, d. Mar. 10, 1844. aged 7(1 y. 6 m. 8 d. " 

" Elizabeth, w. of Nicholas B. d. Mar. 3, 1834. aged 64 y. 9 m. 2 d." 

" John Berrian, d. Oct. 17, 1844. aged 55 y. 4 m. 2 d." 

" Nancy, w. of Samuel Berrian, d. Feb. 26, 1863. aged 71 y. 6 m.

No. II. 

By the Rev. Arthur Wentworth Hamilton Eaton. 

(Continued from Vol. XIX., p. 160, of The Record.) 

This paper must deal exclusively with the descendants of John Thorne 2 
(William 1 ) and his wife Mary. For many of the facts contained in it I am 
indebted to three gentlemen, Dr. John R. Stevenson, of Haddonfield, N. J., 
a descendant of William 3 (John, 2 William 1 ) ; to Mr. Josephs. Middleton, 
of Crosswicks, N. J., whose wife is a descendant of John 3 (John 2 , William 1 ) ; 
and to Mr. George W. Cocks, of Glencove, L. I., who has kindly given 
me the benefit of many most valuable notes he has made on the descend- 
ants, not only of John 2 , but of William 2 and Samuel 2 . I desire here to 
express my thanks to these gentlemen for their kindly co-operation with 
me in my research. 

In 1664, Charles II., disregarding the claims of both the Dutch and 
the Swedes, granted all the territory between the Delaware and Connecti- 
cut rivers to his brother the Duke of York, and sent an expedition to take 
possession of it. New Amsterdam having been first conquered, the New 
Jersey settlements at once submitted, and under the authority of Nicholls, 
the commander of the expedition, and first governor, a patent was granted 
to immigrants from Long Island and New England. Elizabethtown, 
Newark, Middletown, and Shrewsbury were now founded. Later the 
province for some years was divided into East and West Jersey, the former 
division subject to Sir George Carteret and his heirs, the latter to John 
Fenwick, a Quaker, and his associates. In February, 1 682, the whole 
territory was purchased by William Penn and eleven other Quakers. The 
first governor was Robert Barclay, a Scotchman, one of the twelve pur- 
chasers, under whom the province became a refuge for the oppressed 
Friends, and for a time was very prosperous. 

Among the Long Island people who bought or settled land in New 
Jersey were children and grandchildren of William Thorne 1 , and the 
families into which they or their descendants married. Dr. Stevenson 
writes : 

"The Thornes were all (excepting possibly Samuel 2 ) Quakers, from 
Flushing, who located or settled land among Quakers. Beyond thern 
was a strip of arable land extending to the " Pine Barrens " of the Atlantic 
slope, inhabited by Indians. Here came a colony, beginning in 1695, 
from Long Island, among whom were -found t'he names of Cheeseman, 
Chew, Embree, Pledger, Lawrence, Jessup, Jaggar, Pine, Powell, Roe, and 
Stevens. These were not Quakers, nor are their descendants at this day." 

The history of the Quaker movement in America is full of interest. 
. First appearing in Massachusetts in 1656, their persecution drove many of 
the Friends to Long Island, to the shelter of Dutch rule. Lady Deborah^ 
Moody's connection with them, and her settlement at Gravesend with her" 
son, Sir Henry Moody, and many other people who for a time had lived in 
Essex Co., Mass., is not by any means the least interesting episode in the 
movement. Long Island was not destined, however, long to be a place 
of refuge for the oppressed Friends. Governor Stuvvesant soon began a 
series of persecutions, almost as unendurable as those to which they had 
been exposed in New England. As usual, persecution gave intensity to

the movement, until by far the larger part of the new population was 
enrolled among the society. 

George Fox visited the Long Island meetings in 1672. Flushing was 
the headquarters of the sect. Elias Hicks, the leader of the Hicksite, or 
liberal wing of the Friends, was born at Hempstead, 19 March, 1748. He 
died at Jericho, 27 February, 1830. The separation came in 1827. 

To the Society of Friends many of the early Thornes belonged, and 
some still cling to that picturesque but now rapidly disappearing sect. By 
far the greater part, however, have either drifted back into the old church 
of their English ancestor*, or have united with some of the various more 
modern Christian bodies. Either love for the mother church, or the aristo- 
cratic influence of the governors, after New York became an English colony, 
or both, very soon led many persons reared in the Quaker faith again to 
the Episcopal Church, which has had an interesting history in Long Island. 

St. George's parish, Hempstead, whose records go back continuously 
to 1725, was one of the first parishes organized in New York. As early 
as 1695, Rev. William Vesey, afterward the first rector of Trinity Church, 
New York city, held services in Hempstead, being succeeded by Rev. 
George Keith in 1702, in which year Hempstead and Oyster Bay were 
united in one parish, and in 1704, under Rev. John Thomas, a parish 
organization was effected. In 1706 Queen Anne presented to the church 
a Bible, prayer-book, and silver mmunion service, the two ratter of 
which are still preserved, the Bible having disappeared. With this parish 
the Thornes of Great Neck have always been connected, and among its 
earliest preserved records are those of the baptisms of Stephen and Mar- 
garet, son and daughter of Joseph and Catherine (Smith) Thorne, of Cow 
Neck, the exact date being February 21, 1725, when Rev. Robert Jenney 
was rector. June 27, 1735, Joseph Thorne was one of the petitioners 
for a patent of incorporation of this church. 

From Flushing, the 27 th May, 1761, the following petition was sent 
to the Legislature : "The friends of the Church of England in Flushing 
pray for an act of incorporation. They say that they have no minister 
of their own, that divine service is seldom performed, as there is but one 
pastor for Jamaica, Newtown, and Flushing ; that they have erected a 
decent church, and intend to provide for the support of a clergyman. " 
This petition is signed by John Aspinwall, Joseph Bowne, Francis 
Brown, Charles Cornell, and others ; and of Thornes. Daniel, Jacob, 
William, and Benjamin. The Rev. John E. V. Thorne was rector of 
the Flushing church (St. George's) from 1 820-1 826, when the late Dr. 
William Augustus Muhlenberg succeeded to the rectorship which he 
held until 1828, but I do not know who he was.

William 4 was left sole executor of his father's will, in which Mary 3 is 
called "Mary Fowler," and Elizabeth, "Elizabeth Shuerman." These 
daughters married as follows : Mary 3 became the wife of William Fowler, 
and had a daughter Mary. Both mother and daughter were baptized at 
Jamaica by the Rev. Mr. Foyer, of Grace Church, in 171 1. Elizabeth 3 was 
married to a Schurman. Hannah 3 was married, in 1701, to Richard, b.

10 children between 1703 and 1723. Sarah 3 was m. to Joshua, b.

Of Captain Joseph Thorne 4 , (William 3 , John 2 , William 1 ) Dr. John R. 
Stevenson, his descendant, writes : 

"Joseph Thorne is credited as being the son of William Thorne 3 
(John 2 , William 1 ) who lived at one time at "Christianity" in Gloucester 
county, although I have not found any record to substantiate the tradition. 
After his marriage, and before the Revolutionary war, he lived on a farm 
which was either part of William Thome's purchase, in 1706, of Mor- 
decai Howell, or else, adjacent to it. I cannot find any record of the 
purchase or sale of this property by Joseph Thorne, but the titles are 
very imperfect. During and after the war he resided in Haddonfield in 
an old-fashioned hip-roof, brick house, still standing. He married Isa- 
bella, daughter of Richard Cheeseman, in 1756. The Cheese'mans were 
from Hempstead, Long Island, and in the eighteenth century were large 
land-owners in Gloucester county, N. J. Captain Thorne was an Epis- 
copalian, and at one time a vestryman of St. Mary's Church, Colestown, 
Gloucester county, a building erected in 1752, which still stands intact 
within the enclosure of Colestown cemetery, one of the leading burial 
places in West New Jersey. He raised a volunteer company for the 
^Revolutionary army, and was appointed its captain. Subsequently he 
'was placed in command of the second battalion of Gloucester county 
volunteers and served until the close of the war. 

" His family Bible, now in my possession, was printed in Edinburgh, 

f Dr. Stevenson writes : " His marriage is recorded in the Chesterfield (Burling- 
ton Co.) Friends' Records. He lived in Nottingham township. His buildings were 
burned in 1725, and the Friends raised money to help him in rebuilding. His will 
was made in 1742, in which he names 8 of his children." 

go William Thome and some of his Descendants. [April, 

in 1 77 1, the earlier entries being of the births of his children, evidently 
copied from another book. They are as follows, viz : 

'• Mary Thome 5 born May 8 th , 1757. 

John Thorne 5 born November 12 th , 1758. 

Kezia Thorne 5 born March 4 th , 1760. 

Joseph Thorne 5 born February 27 th , 1762. 

Samuel Thorne 5 born September 9 th , 1764. 

Rebecca Thorne 5 born July 3 d , 1768. 

John 5 Thorne deceased April 16 th , 1776. 

Kezia 5 Kay deceased August 1 2 lh , 1792." 

There is no record of his own birth, parentage or death. His sons 
left no issue. 

"Capt. Thorne lived to be ninety years old. That he was poorly off 
in this world's goods is attested by the fact that he lived the last years of 
his life at his son-in-law's, Thomas Stevenson (my grandfather) at "Ste- 
venson's Mill " near Haddonfield, who at that day was the best off of any 
of the captain's family. He died between 1810 and 1825, which would 
fix his birth about 1730. As Revolutionary heroes were not then much 
esteemed, and being a "poor relation," no entry of his death is recorded. 
His daughters who alone left issue were noted for their beauty, a quality 
not yet extinct in some lines. During the war Haddonfield was several 
times occupied by the invading ' ops, when it was found advantageous 
to have officers quartered in te house as it prevented insults and 

vandalism from private soldiers. A hen British officers were billeted at 
Mrs. Thome's, the staid Quakers were scandalized because she was care- 
ful to adorn her daughters tastefully, and they saw in this another sign of 
the degeneracy of the family, who had seceded from the true faith to the 

:d English Church, and whose head had committed the grievous 
offence of taking up arms, even though in defence of his country. 

"Of his children, Mary 5 married James Clement oi Haddonfield, 
(the Clements were from Flushing, L. I.) great uncle of Hon. John Cle- 
ment at present one of the Judges of the New Jersey Court of Errors & 
Appeals. They had children : 

Ann married John Newman, merchant of Phil a 

Elizabeth " Nathan Bunker " 

Hannah " Died in Trinidad. 

Elizabeth &nd Nathan Bunker had a daughter married to James W. Paul 
of Philadelphia, wiiose daughter Mary Dahlgren is the wife of William 
Waldorf A stor, el' New York, and whose son, James \Y. Paul, Jr., married 
a daughter of Anthony J. Drexel of Phi P. 

Jacob married and had sons : Jacob, Samuel, and Charles, and a 
daughter Elizabeth the wife of a Mr. English. 

Kezia'-- married in 1779, John Kay (the Kays are one of the oldest 
Quaker families in Gloucester county, N. J.) and had a daughter Anna 
married to Dr. Samuel Harris of Camden, N. J., she died July 16, 1868. 

Rebecca? married Thomas Stevenson Julv 28, 1795. She died March 
6, 1853. 

'• Richard Thorne of Gloucester Co., ' innkeeper,' bought a dwelling 
and 33 acres near Haddonfield, May 27, 1809. He kept an inn in Cam- 
den at the beginning of this century. His will, dated 20 Feby. 20, 1813, 
proved Aug. 19, 1816, names wife Ann, niece Elizabeth Pinton (Pin-

tard,) daughter Eliza Thorne, and sons, John and Richard, and Joseph 
'if he be alive and returns home, ' also his uncle Joseph Thorne. It is 
thus conjectured that he was a nephew of captain Joseph. 

JOHN 3 (John 2 William 1 ). 

He and his wife Catherine are named in the census of Flushing in 
1698. They were in Chesterfield, Burlington Co., N. J., in 1700. He 
bought land — 181 acres — there, 26 August 1 717. He was a township 
officer at Crosswicks in 1710, and held various public offices until he 
died. He is called "carpenter," and was both carpenter and farmer. 
He made his mark to his will. Mr. Middleton writes : * "We find by a 
deed, dated August 26, 171 7 that he bought land near Crosswicks, N. J. 

" His will, dated 16, 2 mo., 1735, was proved, 14, 6 mo., 1737. His 
widow Catherine's will is dated, 19, 11 mo., 1766, and was proved 29, n 
mo., 1766. She was probably very weak when the will was made as she 
simply makes her mark. Both wills mention nearly the same children, 
some however, before the making of their mother's will, being deceased. 
These children are :

In 1704 Joseph Thorne 3 (undoubtedly John, William, 1 ) and William 
Ford, both of L. I. buy 360 acres in Nottingham township, Burlington 
Co., N. J. In 1706 he buys the homestead of Mordecai Howell on 
Cooper's Neck, Gloucester Co., also a tract 7 miles further up the neck. 
This land, it appears, was soon sold. In 171 9 Joseph Thorne, Samuel 
Thorne, William Lawrence, John Fallman, and Benjamin Field, all of 
Long Island, sold to Thomas Stevenson (elder half brother of Ann, wife 
of Samuel 4 ) f of Bonsalem township, Bucks' Co. Pa., 4000 acres in New 
Britain township in that Co. It is not likely that Joseph Thorne 3 ever 
lived in New Jersey.

on the 1st of March, Gen. Joseph C. Jackson read a paper on " The Evacuation of 
New York by the British." This interesting paper was followed by an address from 
Major-Gen. O. O. Howard, U.S.A. 

At the centennial celebration of Washington's Inauguration, April 30, 1889, this 
Society will be represented on the committee of two hundred by its President, General 
Wilson, and by Messrs. Rufus King and Edward F. De Lancey.

A very loose statement. John Eliot began preaching to the Indians in 1646. 
Our earliest Dutch Church Records begin in 1639. Who were the dominies who 
instructed the Indians before 1639? In what church registers can the names of the 
Indian converts be found? A list of these converts is greatly desired. e. 

In presenting to the Record a paper by Pierce Stevens Hamilton. Esq., who 
is of an interesting branch of the Irish Hamiltons, I beg leave to add that, at least in 
the Lowlands of Scotland, no family save the Douglasses, who are now likewise 
represented by the Duke of Hamilton, can claim so great distinction as the Hamil- 
tons. Nor do I know of any on whose genealogy so much careful work has been 
done. I am now trying to get at the sources of the various Hamilton families in this 
country, and shall be glad if any person bearing the blood, who can trace his pedigree 
for several generations, will kindly communicate with me.

A correspondent writes to us as follows about Mr. Greenstreet : 
I have been trying for some years past to obtain information concerning one of 
my ancestors, who came here in 1733. I had almost given it up when I happened a 
few months ago to see the advertisement of Mr. James Greenstreet in your valu- 
able journal, and I thought I would try him. I did so, with the result, that in a very 
short time, he has procured for me full and valuable information upoivthe points that I 
have been looking for in vain for years. I found him very prompt and honorable in 
his dealings ; and from his letters, I should judge him to be highly educated and 
pains-taking scholar. His charges were very moderatr. I feel very much pleased, for 
had I not read your journal, I probably should never have obtained the information." 

The Minisink Valley Historical Society was organized on February 22d, 
1S89, at Port Jervis, in olden times Machackemeck and Deerpark. Rev. S. W. 
Mills was elected President, Dr. W. L. Cuddeback Recording Secretary, and \V. H. 
Nearpass Corresponding Secretary. Seldom has a society been inaugurated under 
such enthusiastic deep-felt interest, partaking likewise of the patriotic spirit of the 
clay. With an expectant roll of twenty-five, it was organized with fifty members, 
and was soon rapidly increased in number. On the borders of three states, the scope 
of its future work will be broad, interesting, and valuable — " The collection of a 
library ; a cabinet of natural history ; genealogical and biographical information, 
and the diffusion of a sound historical taste and the encouragement of a patriotic 
sentiment. To gather up and preserve whatever relates to the past history of this 
portion of our country." Work for the members was planned out, appropriately dis- 
tributed, and the different tasks cheerfully accepted by the selected members. The 
following are some of the papers to be thus prepared for the society : " The old 
Mackackemeck Church," " The Valley and the old Inhabitants," " The Old Forts," 
" Old Esopus Road " (the traditional Holland Mine Road of 1650). Members were 
appointed also to interview several hale and intelligent old settlers, about to cele- 
brate their own centennials, and to gather genealogical information. The early 
settlers of this region coming from Ulster and other New York counties render its 
genealogy of wide interest. The disinterested earnest characters of the well-known 
and prominent gentlemen at the head of this society, and the general composition of 
its members, give double assurance, not only of future valuable contributions to 
historical lore, but that it will awaken and increase a sincere and honest spirit of 
investigation into the manners and history of those ancestors who laid the foundation 
of our great state and country. J. R. G. 

In Maunder's Treasury of Geography, he says of St. Christopher, or St. Kitts (one 
of the windward islands), it is " an island of long and narrow shape ; has an area of 
63 square miles. At its Northwestern extremity is Mount Misery, an extinct vol- 
cano, which rises to 371 1 feet above the sea." * * * * 

" This island was first settled by the English in 1623." Thompson, in his 
History of Long Island, says : " On the east of Port Jefferson, and extending to Old 
Man's Harbor, is Mount Misery." The promontory of Mount Misery, Long Island, 
forms the eastern headland of the Bay of Setauket, upon which Setauket and Port 
Jefferson lie. Setauket is the oldest settlement in the town of Brookhaven, Long 
Island, and dates from the year 1655. It was founded by Mr. Richard Wodhull, 
Richard Floyd, William Satterly, John Scudder, Richard Smith, and their associates. 
The New England colonies, and the English settlements on Long Island, early traded 
with the Island of St. Kitts. Among the first settlers of the country, many came

from England via the Bermudas (otherwise called Somers Islands, after Admiral 
Somers), and the various islands of the West Indies. No reasonable theory or expla- 
nation of the origin of the name of the Long Island Mount Misery having as yet been 
advanced, and my attention having been accidentally drawn to the above extract from 
Maunder while investigating another subject, I submit for consideration whether the 
Long Island headland of exceptional name, may not have been called by early set- 
tlers after the bold headland of the same name at the Northwestern extremity of the 
Island of St. Kitts, and if so, whether some of the early settlers of Setauket, and of 
Long Island, may not have come to this country from the Island of St. Christopher 
or St. Kitts, or from England via that island, and so have brought the name with 
them to Long Island in memory of their island home or resting place, St. Kitts 
having been settled in 1623, and Setauket not until 1655. thirty-two years afterward. 
I hope these suggestions may fall under the observation of persons studying early 
Long Island history, in order, if possible, that the origin of the name of Mount 
Misery, Setauket harbor, may be determined : and also because of their possible 
bearing upon the larger and more interesting subject of the course of the early emi- 
gration from England to Long Island. MAXWE LI. van ZANDT woodhui.L. 

The following is a translation from the original well-preserved manuscript in 
Dutch, dated August, 1656, from the Collection of Bayard Documents in the pos- 
session of General Wilson, President of the Society, who has placed it at the service 
of the Publication Committee. The property mentioned in the manuscript was after- 
wards owned by Peter Bayard, youngest son of Madame Anna Bayard, sister of Gov. 
Stuyvesant, after whom he was named, and ancestor of Mrs. Jas. Grant Wili-on. 

We, the undersigned, Councilmen of the City of Amsterdam, in New Netherland, 
declare hereby that before us compared and appeared, Adam Brouwer, now residing 
on the Lower Inland, who declared to transfer and convey to and in favor of Dirck 
Van Schelluyne, Notary Public and Gatekeeper of this City, a certain house and lot, 
situated within this said City, north of the commenced canal between the lots of Jan 
de Kuyper [John the Cooper] on the west side and Egl. Woutersze [Walters' son] on 
the east side, wide, fronting the street, with free access on both sides, in Rhinelandish 
rods, four feet and six inches, from there eastward along the line of the lot of Henry 
Jochemse, in a straight line to the rear of the garden, six rods, nine feet, from there 
eastward to the fence and line of Egl. Woutersze three rods, six feet and two inches, 
following the same line to the north, seven rods and one foot, from there westward 
following the line of the lot of Dirck Bousich to the lots of Gerrit de Molenaar [Gar- 
rett the Miller] there and where the servant of Jacob de Brouwer [the Brewer] has 
been building, three rods, six inches, along the same lot southward, four rods, three 
feet, along the lot of said Gerrit de Molenaar. again westward, one rod, seven feet, 
and so keeping on along the line of the lots of Gerrit and Abram de Molenaar to the 
rear of the lot of Jan de Kuyper, again to the south five rods, five feet and four 
inches, from there once more in a line running eastward, one rod, two feet and eight 
inches, and from there again till reaching the street southward, five rods, six feet and 
one inch, according to the measurement made by the Court-messenger in presence of 
Egl. Woutersze and John de Kuyper, which happened on the 18 th of August of this 
year. And this by force of letter patent given to the Comparant by us Councilmen 
and in date February 7 th 1647, which foresaid house and lot, as said before, as the 
same is as to the carpenter work, the trees etc., he, the Comparant is transferring and 
conveying as a true and rightful property, to the aforenamed Dirck Van Schelluyne, 
with all such actions, rights and rightfulness as he has administered and possessed the 
same, Renouncing therefore any further action, right or pretension of property which 
by him Comparant or anybody in his behalf might be made on foresaid house and 
lot, with promise to hold the same safe against any claim or encumbrance brought 
forward by any one in the world, (excepting however his rights as master), all for the 
agreed upon price according to contract, to be paid and settled in full, declaring 
furthermore to consider this his transfer and conveyance as firmly binding and 
unbreakable, to live up to it and perform it, in connection with and submission to 
all rights and documents, the minute of this has been subscribed to by Councilmen 
Jacob Strijcker en Hendrich Kip in a protocol at the Secretarie of this City, this the 
19 th of August 1656. 

and have affixed here the city's seal and sealed it herewith.

Q2 Notes and Queries. [April, 

I have read with great interest in the January number of the Record, an article 
by Mr. Edwin Salter, on the Huguenots in Monmouth County, N. J., and as 
that article contains items relating to our family that are erroneous, I do not deem it 
wise that they should be passed over without correction. The items as to the pur- 
chase of land in New Jersey by Henry Perrine in 1711, and by Peter Perrine in 1713, 
are I believe correct. As to the Perrine family (the original form is Perrin), being 
descended from Pierre Perrine, a Huguenot, who came from Lower Charante, France, 
and settled on Staten Island, this is not correct, if by the Pierre Perrine is meant the 
first of the family coming to America. 

Next to the John Perrin who came to Braintree, Mass., 1635-40, from England, 
was Daniel Perrin, the first refugee of our branch of the family, who came over in the 
ship " Philip," sailing from the Island of Jersey, and arriving in New York Harbor 
July 29, 1665. Daniel Perrin took up his residence on the Elizabethtown Plantations, 
and on February 18, 1666, he was married to Maria Thorel, a fellow passenger of 
his on the " Philip." This was said to have been the first marriage solemnized on 
that plantation. 

Daniel afterwards removed to and settled on Staten Island, where all his children 
were born. From what place in France he came is not now known, but it is believed 
that the family fled from that country in the early part of the seventeenth century, 
some going to England, Ireland and elsewhere. This part of the family record is very 
obscure, but authentic records show that Daniel Perrin set sail for America, from the 
Isle of Jersey, in the ship " Philip," in the spring of 1665, and it is from that year 
that the Pen in, Perrine, or Perine family in America dates, although fragmentary 
items are in my possession carrying the family record back many more generations. 
The old tradition so long extant in the family about the first ancestor coining to 
America in the ship " Caledonia," has been proved to be false by evidence in the 
Colonial Records which shows conclusively that such could not have been the case. 

The so-called old Perine Homestead on Staten Island was built about 1713 by 
Joseph Homes, and at his death it passed to his only child Ann, who, in 175S, had 
married Edward Perine, and it has since remained in and been occupied continuously 
by one of that branch of the family. 

Daniel Perrin married twice, first Maria Thorel. second Elizabeth . By 

his first wife he had, Joshua, Peter, Henry, James, Daniel, William and Francyntje. 
By his second wife he had, Sara, Elizabeth, and Maria S. Of Joshua nothing is 

Peter's children were Peter, born in 1706, Henry, Matthew, James, and William. 

Henry's children (this is Mr. Salter's "Henry and wife Maria") were John, 
Henry, born 1713, and Maria. 

James' children were Peter and Daniel, the latter being the one who settled in 
Stafford Township. 

Daniel's children were Peter, Daniel, Joseph, and Henry. 

William died in childhood. 

Francyntje married first Abraham Egbertson of Staten Island, second Hendrik 
Janszen (Johnson) of the same place. 

Sara married first. William Stillwell of Cape May, N. J., second, James Boster of 
Staten Island. 

Elizabeth married John Stillwell of Cape May, N. J. 

Maria S. married Johannes Sweem of Staten Island. 

I think this will be quite enough for my sole purpose of correcting the erroneous 
statements of Mr. Salter respecting the Perrines of Staten Island, and I will add that 
I am quite sure of the accuracy of my statements, from the fact that I have been 
engaged for several years past in compiling a " History of the Perrin Family in 
America," and I am able by old records, etc., to prove most of the facts I have above 
stated. H. D. perrine. 


Brigadier-General Ranald Slideli. Mackenzie died at New Brighton, Staten 
Island, New York, January ig th , i88g. General Mackenzie, who was born in New

by his intermarriage with Catharine, daughter of the late Morris Robinson of New

York. Gen. Mackenzie was graduated at West Point in the class of 1862. He was 
immediately (July 17 th , 1862,) commissioned as second lieutenant of Engineers and 
ordered to active service under General Pope. His distinguished and meritorious 
services at the battles of Manasses and Chancellorsville won for him a speedy pro- 
motion. He was made captain November 6, 1863, at (he early age of twenty-three. 
He served in the cavalry under Sheridan, who had at that time with him three of the 
most brilliant young officers in the service, Merritt, Upton, and Custer. Of these 
Mackenzie was in all respects the equal. In 1S67 (March 6 th ,) Mackenzie was made 
Colonel of the 41 st Infantry and Dec. 21 st , 1870 he was made Colonel of the 4 th Cav- 
alry, an arm of the service which he had always preferred. This was rapid, but well 
merited promotion, for he was then not thirty. In 18S2 (Oct. 26 th ,) he received his 
commission as brigadier-general, and continued in active service until 1S84 (March 
24 th ,) when he was retired in consequence of disability contracted in the line of duty. 
General Mackenzie never married. 

John Whetten Ehninger, scholar and artist, died suddenly of apoplexy at his 
home at Saratoga, on Tuesday, the 22d of January last. His paternal grand-parents, 
John Christopher Ehninger and Catharine Astor, came to America from Germany in 
the latter part of the last century. His father, George Ehninger, was born in New 
York in 1792, and is said to have been educated at Columbia College, though he 
appears to have left before graduation. In 1822, he married Eliza, daughter of Cap- 
tain John Whetten, also of New York, who was long engaged in the China trade, 
and, later in life, was president of the Marine Society, and the first Governor of the 
Sailors' Snug Harbor on Staten Island. It was through Captain Whetten that the 
Ehningers were connected with the Brevoorts, Sedgvvicks. and various New York 
families. John W. Ehninger was born in New York in 1827, and was graduated 
from Columbia College in the class of 1S47, in the roll of which appear the well-known 
New York names of Chanler, Conger. Lawrence, Mitchell, Moore, Neilson, Onder- 
donk, Rhinelander, Van Rensselaer, Westervelt. During his college life he gave 
evidence of his predilection for the art to which he after devoted himself; his note- 
books, which in strict soberness should have contained only abstracts of the lectures of 
the professors, were embellished with many graceful drawings which were the admi- 
ration of his fellow-studenis, who were justly proud of him. Shortly after taking his 
clegree, he went to Dusseldorf and studied painting under Leutze. During a subse- 
quent visit to Europe he was a pupil, and, it is said, a favorite one of Thomas Couture, 
of Paris. Mr. Ehninger was elected a member of the National Academy of Design 
in i860, and 1882 and 1883 was one of the hanging committee. His Alma Mater 
possesses a portrait of the late professor, James Renwick. painted by him many years 
ago, which, however, as Mr. Ehninger himself once observed to the present writer, 
hardly does him justice : but, if the execution were inferior to that of his later works, 
his success in catching the likeness certainly was not. About ten years ago he 
married Miss Beach, and shortly afterwards removed to Saratoga, where he lived for 
the rest of his life. 

Henry Berton Sands, M.D., Professor,of the Practice of Surgery in the College 
of Physicians and Surgeons in this city, died suddenly in his carriage November 18, 

The two-story wooden building at the south-west corner of the Bowery and Spring 
Street, one of the first erected in that portion of our city, which has the time-worn 
sign of " Church's Dispensary" over its entrance, long a land-mark, in which he was 
born, September 27, 1830, is soon to give way to a modern structure. 

A delicate boy, familiarly called by his schoolmates " Bones," he assisted in his 
father's drug store for several years after attending Mr. Isaac T. Bragg's school ; but 
as the family physician thought his strength unequal to this calling, he advised him to 
study medicine. He received his diploma from the College of Physicians and Sur- 
geons in 1854, and then served in both the Medical and Surgical wards of Bellevue 
Hospital. After nearly a year spent in Europe, he began his professional career in 
his native city, soon receiving the appointment of Demonstrator of Anatomy, of Pro- 
fessor of Anatomy, and later of Professor of Surgery in his Alma Mater. He was an 
attending and Consulting Surgeon in our largest hospitals ; a member and officer in 
numerous medical societies ; and the author of many articles on surgical subjects in 
medical journals. In the earlier years of his practice he was an associate of the late 
Dr. Willard Parkes. 

Although he did not receive a classical education, he was an excellent scholar in 
French and German, and a good musician.

Twice he was married, his first wife being Miss Sarah Maria Curtis, of Brooklyn, 
N. Y. ; and his second, Mrs. Alice H. Reamey, daughter of Peter Hayden, of this 
city. He had five children, four by the first, and one by the second wife. Of these, 
Josephine and Robert Alfred, A.B., M.D., by the first wife; and Henry, by the 
second wife, survive. 

The father of Professor Sands was Robert Alfred Sands, a druggist, as has been 
mentioned, who was an assistant alderman in the Fourteenth ward in 1849-52, and a 
director in the Manhattan Savings Bank for fifteen years. His mother was Ellen, 
daughter of Samuel and Nellie (Peters) Gedney. 

The ancestrv of the Sands family is as follows : 

James 1 Sands, from England, b. 1622 : d. 1695. He was at Plymouth, Mass., 
before 1642, and died on Block Island, where he lived subsequently to 1661. A 
large, recumbent sandstone slab in good preservation marks his grave. 

John," b. 1649 : d. 1712, removed from Block Island to Cowneck, Long Island, 
and died there. 

John, 3 b. 16S4: d. 1763, of Cowneck. 

John, 4 b. 1709: d. 1760, of Cowneck. 

John, 5 b. 1737 : d. 1S11, inherited his father's farm at Cowneck. 

Robert, 6 b. 1771 : d. 1S12, the first of the family in this city, where he was a part- 
ner with a Mr. Dickerson in the ship-chandlery business. He was buried at Cow- 

Robert Alfred, 7 b. 1S05 : d. 1S79. His body was placed in a vault in St Paul's 
Church yard, New York. 

Henry Berton," the surgeon. He was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery. 

Madame Hei.oise Chegaray died at her house in New York, on Monday, 
January 28, in the ninety-eighth year of her age. This accomplished and celebrated 
lady had been living in serene retirement for many years ; but New Yorkers of the 
older generation will recall witli gratitude the history of her remarkable career. For 
more than half a century, Madame Chegaray trained and instructed the daughters 
of New Yorkers of the better class. Among her earlier pupils were the daughters of 
Beverley Robinson — one celebrated for her amiability and beauty, the other for her 
high breeding and graceful manners ; among the later were the Thebauds, accom- 
plished ladies who still adorn society. Miss Susan Van den Ileuvel (Mrs. Thomas 
Gibbes), the mother of the late Mrs. John Jacob Astor and of Miss Annette Gibbes, 
was a favorite and creditable scholar ; but to continue these allusions would be to 
enumerate the leading families of New York, of the South, and even of Mexico and 

A little more than a hundred years ago, M. Pierre Robert Prosper Desabaye, a 
young Parisian gentleman, married Katharine, sole heiress of the great estates of 
d'Amberbos and Dati, families which had been settled in San Domingo since 1683. 
The French Revolution marred their fortunes, and the surrender of the island to the 
blacks completed their ruin. In 1797 M. Desabaye, reduced to poverty, removed 
his family from Paris to New York. The young Heloise, then a child of nine years 
old, and knowing nothing, as she herself said afterwards, but her native tongue, 
received a thorough education in the school of Miss Hay, at New Brunswick, N. J. 
Miss Desabaye was employed, at an, early age, as a French governess in the 
school of Madame de Si. Memim, in New York, and afterward as a teacher in the 
school of Madame Nau. There she worked diligently ; what she was to teach on the 
morrow she studied the night before, and she thus qualified herself to carry out a 
cherished wish. Encouraged by Miss Hay and Mrs. Iselin, her firm friends. Miss 
Desabaye opened, with sixteen pupils, on the first of May, 1S14. her school in Green- 
wich Street, which was then, and for many years afterwards, the best quarter of the 
town. To use her own words : " Thus was my school started, and I take this occa- 
sion to express my gratitude to those who confided to so young an instructress — for I 
was only twenty-two — the education of their daughters, and I pray God to bless 
them and their country." 

From Greenwich Street Miss Desabaye removed to North Moore Street, and thence 
to St. John's Square, which was then quite new and by no means the elegant part of 
the town which it afterwards became. The pupils found it hard work to walk from 
Pine or Cedar, and even from Lispenard Street. The thin shoes and insufficient 
wrappings of those days exposed the girls to the blasts of Beach Street, which then 
blew fiercely. The elder girls, as one of them has often said to the writer, were wont 
to cheer and comfort the little ones, who would cry with the cold on their way from

school. After a temporary sojourn in Houston Street and Union Square, the 
school was finally removed to 7S Madison Avenue, where it remained until it was 
given up. 

Miss Desabaye married — we have not been able to learn the date — M. Chegaray, a 
Frenchman from Bayonne, of good family, but of no fortune, with whom she lived 
happily. She never had any children. She taught her pupils to call her " Tante," 
a term of endearment which some of them always used, even when they were mature 
women. She was eminently successful in winning and retaining their affections. 
Her brother, Mark Desabaye, was for many years her faithful friend and coadjutor. 

The New York Sun of December 25, 1S87, contained an admirable sketch of Madame 
Chegaray. written, as we are informed by one of herfoimer pupils, by a person " who 
had the benefit of personal interviews with Madame Chegaray and her nieces, 
Madame de Ruiz and Mrs. McClenahan." We are assured, upon the same authority, 
that "it is quite authentic and reliable." It is much to be desired that this valuable 
article should be reprinted and put in a permanent form. 


Some other notices of books have been unavoidably delayed. 

To the notice of the volume on Bohemia Manor in the January number of the 
Record, it should have been added that the work may be obtained by addressing 
the author, the Rev. Charles Payson Mallery, at West Farms, New York City. 

Genealogies of the Potter Families and their Descendants in Amer- 
ica. Edited by Charles Edward Potter, 4fo. Boston : Alfred Mudge & Son, 1888. 

This large and elaborate work contains the history of no less than ten families of 
the name of Potter, the ancestors of which settled in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, 
and Connecticut in the early, part of the seventeenth century. The book is divided 
into ten parts, each of which has an index of its own ; and the descendants of every 
founder are arranged in genealogical tables in a remarkably clear, concise, and intel- 
ligible manner. The whole is illustrated with biographies and portraits, and the 
work does great credit to the industry and perseverance of the author. 

Appletons' Cyclopaedia of American Biography. Edited by James Grant 
Wilson and John Fiske. Volume VI. New York : D. Appleton & Co., 1889. 

This handsome volume completes this elaborate and laborious work. It forms 
666 pages of text, carrying the alphabet from Sunderland to Zurita, with a supple- 
ment of 36 pages, in which a full history of Benjamin Harrison, President of the 
United States, is given, with a portrait. The volume contains, not inappropriately, a 
life of Washington, with which are grouped, in accordance with the excellent plan 
which has been followed throughout the work, accounts of other members of his family. 
Among the names in the present volume are those of Taylor, Taney, Tilden, Tyler, 
Van Buren, Waite, Webster, Wise, statesmen and jurists. Bishops, soldiers, lawyers, 
artists, men of letters, are numerous ; and many well-known or celebrated names 
give the volume an interest not inferior to that of several of its predecessors. There 
are the usual steel plate engravings, and vignette portraits, and illustrations accom- 
panying the text ; and the whole ends with a full index giving, not only names, but 
subjects, and so arranged as to form a system of cross-references from one article to 
another, which will enable a diligent reader to collect with ease information which 
may be diffused through several articles.

by the author of the work before us ; and in volume fourteen, p. 100, in like manner, 
to the author's " Tombstone Inscriptions from the Church Yard of the First Reformed 
Dutch Church of Fishkill Village, N. Y." ; and now we have the pleasure of direct- 
ing the attention of our readers to one of the most pleasing and sumptuous works 
which has issued from the press of the Putnams, — a work which bears upon its pages 
the zeal and care of a diligent expert in Dutch family history. 

The emigrant ancestor of the Van Voorhees family, Steven Coerte Van Voorhees, 
came from Hees, in the province of Drenthe, Holland, to America, in April, 1660, 
in the ship Bontekoe (Spotted Cow), with his wife and children, and settled in 
Flatlands, L. I. It is the descendants of this sturdy Dutchman that the author has 
traced in this attractive volume.

The Life of Young Henry Vane. Governor of Massachusetts Bay, and 
Leader of the Long Parliament, with a Consideratjon of the English 
Commonwealth as a Forecast of America By James K. Hosmer. Boston 
and New York : Houghton, Mifflin & Company, 18S8. 

This well-printed and illustrated octavo is not Prof. Hosmer's first appearance in 
the biographical field. He was already favorably known by his admirable Memoir 
of Samuel Adams, that being among the best of the excellent American Statesmen 
Series issued by the same house. Such being the case, much was expected of his 
second and more ambitious effort, with such a picturesque subject as Sir Harry Vane, 
of whom a previous biographer has said : '' His name is the most appropriate link to 
bind us to the land of our fathers." This high-born and brilliant young Englishman, 
second only to his friends Cromwell and Hampden, has been the subject of several 
elaborate biographies by George Sikes and John Forster of Old England, and by 
Charles W. Upham of New England ; but we have no hesitation in affirming that 
even the warmest admirers of those admirable writers would unite with us in prefer- 
ring the work of Prof. Hosmer to either of its predecessors. He has exhausted every 
source of information, has pursued his subject with enthusiasm, but has not permitted 
his admiration to cloud his judgment, or to blind him to the frailties of the man of 
whom Milton wrote : 

" Vane, young in years but in sage counsel old, 
Than whom a better Senator ne'er held 
The helm of Rome, when gowns not arms repell'd 
The fierce Epirot and the African bold." 

We could wish that every reader of the Record might possess this biography of 
one who was both an American and Englishman — of one who, from the day when he 
defended Anne Hutchinson in Massachusetts to the hour when he calmly laid his 
head upon the block on Tower-hill by the Thames, by command of Charles the 
Second, consecrated the whole force of his great powers to vindicating what he held to 
be English freedom. To quote Prof. Hosmer's concluding words : " Thorough 
Englishman, thorough American, his mind possessed by no obsolete ideas, but with 
ideas so vital at the present moment, the figure of this half-forgotten martyr of free- 
dom can well be brought forward in the hour in which English-speaking men are 
beginning to feel that 

" When love unites, wide space divides in vain, 
And hands may clasp across the flowing main."

The Loan Exhibition in connection with the Centennial celebration 
possesses great merit, and may be regarded as a success ; though it may, 
perhaps, be regretted that the change of plan on the part of the commit- 
tee, by which the scope of the exhibition was enlarged, should have led 
to the omission of many things which might easily have been obtained. 
Indeed, we are disposed to think that the committee would have learned 
much if it had consulted this society at an early stage of its labors. The 
portrait of Lord Stirling, for instance, might have been procured, as well 
as the elegant miniatures of Colonel and Lady Catharine Duer. Lord 
Stirling's soup-spoon (a fine piece of plate, with his crest moulded in it) 
might have been added to the collection of his silver sent by Mrs. Archi- 
bald Russell. His military chest and sundry domestic utensils, formerly 
belonging to Lady Stirling, are still in the possession of his descendants. 
The portraits of Susanna, Mary, and Margaret Philipse are still in exist- 
ence. The first, after strange vicissitudes, has at last found a resting-place 
in the gallery of the Historical Society. It disappeared from the Beverley 
House during the Revolutionary war, and has only recently come to light. 
The second is of interest because of the well-known friendship between 
Washington and Mary Philipse before that lady married Roger Morris. 
The excellent miniature of Colonel Beverley Robinson himself, and his 
seal of arms, might have claimed a place (albeit he took the other side, as 
indeed, as an officer in the king's army, he was bound to do) by reason 
of his long intimacy with Washington. It is better, however, to speak of 
what has been done than of what may have been left undone ; and we 
may fairly congratulate the committee upon the result of its labors. 

The arrangement of the exhibition was as follows : 1. Portraits. 2. 
Engravings. 3. Illustrations. 4. Busts. 5. Relics. 6. Silverware. 7. 
The Fellowcraft Club exhibit (why not exhibition ?), which consisted of 
a large collection of newspapers and magazines. In what we have to say, 
however, we shall follow a different order, leaving the portraits to the 

Among the silverware occur, as we have mentioned, some pieces of 
the Alexander plate. The Boudinot, Schuyler, and Fairfax plate are 
large and handsome collections. Many well-known New York names 
are found among the contributors to this department, for which we refer 
our readers to the catalogue itself. A remarkably large and handsome 
salver of silver gilt, belonging to Wilson King, of Pittsburgh, Pa., with 
arms engraved upon it, is described as a "William and Mary salver, once 
owned by the premier viscount of England " ; but it was placed so provok- 
ingly out of sight as to make it impossible to blazon the arms, thus render-

ing the description useless. Indeed, in the whole matter of the heraldry 
of the exhibition, we see grave cause to regret the absence of the interven- 
tion of this society. There is an immense deal of information wrapped 
up in the mysterious designs (mere pictures to the public), which more 
than one member of this society could have extracted. Two pewter 
plates, formerly belonging to Walter Franklin, are a somewhat curious, 
not to say incongruous, addition to this department. They might have 
been aptly flanked by Lady Stirling's double pewter water-plates, which 
went through the war, and which may, for aught that is known to the 
contrary, have figured at General Washington's famous dinner-party, 
given to Mrs. Cochran and Mrs. Livingston, of which he wrote an 
account in a letter to Dr. Cochran, almost the only occasion on which he 
is known to have indulged in sportive writing. 

For the relics, which appeared to absorb the attention of most of the 
visitors, we must direct our readers to the catalogue itself; since to quote 
from it would be to reproduce it. It is surprising that so large and mis- 
cellaneous a collection could have been brought together. We may here 
mention in passing that we are told that it is in contemplation to photo- 
graph the whole of the collection, and to publish a large illustrated cata- 
logue — a laborious and costly undertaking, if, indeed, it be possible to 
accomplish it. 

The most valuable part of the exhibition, however, is the collection of 
busts, portraits, and engravings, from which, indeed, we miss many ; but, 
as we said before, when so much has been done, we may regret, but we 
cannot complain of, the little that has been left undone. The collection 
is rich in Clintons, Hamilton--, and Franklins. Copley's famous picture of 
Ralph Izard and his wife has come all the way from Charleston. Stuart's 
John Jay, in his robes of office as chief-justice of the United States, is 
there. Indeed, Jays and Jeffersons abound. We should be glad to be 
informed, however, why the; portrait oi~ William Samuel Johnson, Presi- 
dent of Columbia College from 1787 to 1800, is said to be by I. L. Waldo, 
after Stuart. This is not the tradition of the college ; and, unless some 
new evidence has come to light since we made a careful study of the pic- 
tures at the college a few years ago, we will presume to doubt it. There 
was then no record and no written history of the older pictures. It is 
certain that a portrait of Dr. Johnson, which is still in the possession of 
his family at Stratford, was painted by Stuart, and it has been the tradition 
of the college for a hundred years that a replica was made by the master's 
own hand. There is, unless some have lately come to light, no written 
evidence oneway or the other : but there is a private mark in the college's 
picture which a copyist would hardly have inserted ; and there is such 
internal evidence as the picture itself can give. We will not undertake to 
give an opinion, but we will say that the picture is certainly the best that 
the college possesses. The fact that the elder Dr. Johnson died before the 
war may have rightly excluded his portrait by Smybert from the collec- 
tion ; Din mere seems no adequate reason why the fine likenesses of Dr. 
Cooper and Bishop Moore should not have had a place in it. 

Stuart's ami Trumbull's portraits of Rufus King are there, and the fine 
likeness of Mr. King's wife, the celebrated and beautiful Mary Alsop. 
Morse's La Fayette and Stuart's portrait of Robert R. Livingston are among 
the older paintings. Among modern ones, Inman's Madison and Elliott's 
portrait of the Rev. Dr. John Ogilvie, after Copley, are worthy of mention ;

though, if the original be in the possession of Trinity Church, we do not 
see why it was not borrowed. Many other well-known and honored names 
appear in the catalogue, and the names of the artists Copley, Peale, Stuart, 
Robertson, Pine, Earle, Trumbull, Jarvis, Sully, Vandeflyn. and others are 
an evidence of the value of the collection. There is a small and not very 
complete collection of engravings. Three busts of Houdon's Washington 
have been contributed by Mr. Fish, Mr. Hewitt, and Luther Kountze, but 
the catalogue gives no account of them. Ceracchi's fine bust of Hamilton 
has also been lent by Mr. Hewitt. The Kembles contribute Ceracchi's 
Washington. There are several other busts of Hamilton, Frankin, and 

We come, in the last place, to the most important part of the collec- 
tion, the Washington portraits. Forty-eight portraits of Washington 
have been brought together, yet the collection is by no means complete. 
The names of the artists, however — Exine, Field, Grimaldi, Hubert, 
Peale, Ramage, Robertson, Rossiter, Savage, Sharpless, and Stuart — 
testify to its excellence. The gems of the collection are, of course, the 
Gibbs and Vaughan pictures, and the celebrated Constable painting, lent 
by Henry Pierrepont, of Brooklyn, to whom, we understand, it now 
belongs. We regret very much to be obliged to point out the carelessness 
and inaccuracy with which the accounts of the first and last of these paint- 
ings have been prepared. The only ground for the supposition that this 
Vaughan picture (for there are two) was the original first portrait, is a 
statement by Rembrandt Peale that Stuart made five replicas of his first 
painting, and afterward sold it to Winstanley. That there are five replicas 
is true enough, as we shall presently point out ; but that Stuart should 
have sold his picture to a man with whom he was not on friendly terms, 
is not only improbable, but is contradicted by Stuart himself, who said 
distinctly, in a letter written in 1823, that he had rubbed it out. This 
clear and positive statement can hardly be set aside by accusing Stuart of 
loss of memory. The not very lucid suggestion of the writer in the cata- 
logue that this must be the original, because there was not time to make 
a copy and carry it to England and engrave it before November, 1796, is 
refuted by the fact that a copy was actually made and carried there. The 
writer does not seem to be aware that there are two Vaughan portraits, 
and that both were carried to England, where one of them — that made for 
Mr. John Vaughan — still remains. The other, which is in the exhibition, 
and which belonged to Mr. Samuel Vaughan, was engraved by Hallowell 
in 1796, and again by Ridley in 1800, for the European Magazine. 
This engraving was reproduced in the Magazine of American History, 
Vol. XL, p. 90. Mr. Mason has discussed the subject very carefully in his 
Life of Stuart, and has thoroughly exploded the idea which this writer 
has unfortunately revived.* 

Having thus cleared the ground, we proceed to state the facts. There 
are five well-known replicas, not three, of Stuart's first portrait of Wash- 

* The evidence against the possibility of Stuart's having sold his first portrait of 
Washington to Winstanley appears to be complete. The first time that Winstanley 
saw Stuart, he went to him as a stranger, and behaved in so singular a manner that 
Stuart threatened to throw him out of the window, and would have carried his threat 
into execution had not Winstanley promptly withdrawn. Of course, Stuart could not 
have had any intercourse with him before he knew him, and he would not, aftei 
the interchange of these amenities. The story is told at length in Mason's Life of

ington, which give the right side of the face. The most celebrated of 
these is the Gibbs picture, which has descended from Col. George Gibbs, 
of New York, to Dr. W. F. Charming, of Providence, R. I. The second 
was made for Samuel Vaughan, a personal friend of Washington's. The 
third was made for John Vaughan, and was taken to England, whence it 
never returned. The fourth is in the possession of Mrs. Rogers, of 
Lancaster, Pa. The fifth belongs to Mr. Betts, a grandson of the late Mr. 
Samuel Betts, of New York, in whose family it has been since 1815. It 
was not sent to the exhibition, because it was not applied for in time to 
transport it to New York. It has been for half a century in Mr. Betts's 
country house, and is probably little known to the present generation ; 
but up to 1 84 1 (when it was shown in an exhibition of Stuart's pictures) 
it was familiar to every artist and gentleman in New York. A copy of it 
was made many years ago by Paradise, and is now, or was not long ago, 
in Cozzen's Hotel, at Westpoint. It was also photographed in 1887 for 
the first number of the Curio. 

This fine picture is a three-quarters length, life size, in uniform. The 
attitude is nearly the same as that of Gen. Knox in Stuart's portrait. 
The right hand is placed upon the hip, and the left arm, which is 
extended, holds in the hand a telescope, which rests upon a rock. There 
are the famous lace ruffles at the wrists. The sword is the same as that 
in Mr. Pierrepont's picture, probably the dress sword which was given to 
Stuart by the Count de Noailles. The face, which, of course, gives the 
right side, is that of the Gibbs portrait, which it strikingly resembles in 
features and expression, and to which it is in no respect inferior. 

The celebrated Constable picture, now belonging to Henry Pierre- 
pont, of Brooklyn, N. Y., is hardly adequately described. The compiler 
of the catalogue has given the impression that it is a replica of the Lans- 
downe picture, but it is really something more. Mr. Mason says that 
Stuart worked upon both pictures at the same time, but he does not seem 
to have known why. The history of the origin qf this painting is as fol- 
lows : In the early part of 1796, Mr. William Constable visited Stuart's 
studio for the purpose of ordering a copy of his portrait of the President, 
i. e., the first one, which has just been described. He found Stuart 
engaged on a new picture, the Lansdowne, which was partially sketched 
out. Mr. Constable was so much pleased with this picture, that he 
directed Stuart to make him a duplicate of it. Thus the two pictures 
were actually painted at the same time ; and, although the Lansdowne 
picture is undoubtedly the original, Mr. Constable's may be regarded as a 
sort of twin, and as something more than an ordinary replica. Stuart soon 
afterwards painted a half-length from this picture, which Mr. Constable gave 
to Alexander Hamilton. It is to be regretted that this, the only half- 
length known, did not appear at the exhibition. 

The third and last portrait of Washington which Stuart painted from 
life is known as the Boston Athenamm head. This is the picture which 
Stuart retained for his own use, and of which he made many finished 
copies. Five of these replicas have been contributed by William H. 
Aspinwall, George C. Clark, Chauncey M. Depew, and R.'T. Auchmuty, 
of New York, and by Mrs. J. V. L. Pruyn, of Albany. These are of very 
varying merit. The last has peculiar interest from the fact of its having 
come from Mount Vernon, and it is decidedly the best of the five. A 
copy on glass is in the catalogue, sent bv Luther Kountze, but we did

painted in China, and sent out to New York in the very beginning of the 
present century. The children of the late Dr. John Haslett, of Brook- 
lyn, have one of these paintings on glass, which was bought by their grand- 
father, Mr. John Haslett, at the time of its arrival in 1804. It is a work 
of art of some merit, and has evidently been painted from a very fine 
Stuart which found its way to China in some manner which cannot now 
be explained. 

By the courtesy of Mr. R. W. Wright, who has kindly allowed the 
use of his plate, we are able to present the readers of the Record with the 
photograph of Mr. Betts's picture, which was made by Kurtz for the Curio 
— an excellent magazine which came to an untimely end. 



By Gerrit H. Van Wagenen. 

Jacobus Conradt Van Elmendorf appears to have been the first of the 
name to settle in Ulster County, and to be the ancestor of the various 
branches of the Elmendorf family named in the early records. 

He married at Kingston, Jan. 28, 1668, Grietje Aartse (Van Wagenen), 
from Utrecht, daughter of Aart Jacobs (Van Wagenen) and Annetje 

A copy of the will of "Grietje Aartse Van Elmendorf," dated 1699, 
and recorded 17 14, is on record in New York. She mentions her sons 
Conradt and Jacobus, and her daughters, Geertje, wife of Evert Wynkoop, 
Anna, wife of Mattys Janse, and Janneke.

By Berthold Fernow. 
Late Keeper of the Historical Records. 

Our sources for the history of New Netherland are principally 
the official records of the time of Dutch rule ; they must be considered 
under two heads : the records of the governments in Furope which were 
interested in this part of the world, and the documents of the provincial 
government, containing the transactions between the governing and the 
governed classes. Of the former we have copies, the procuring of which 
by the State about fifty years ago was one of the epoch-making events in 
the annals of historiography. They were given to the public in eleven 
volumes, including the index volume, under the title of ''Documents 
relating to the Colonial History of New York." Mr. Brodhead, the 
agent of the State, who was sent to Holland, England, and France, was 
unfortunately too late by twenty years to obtain copies of the records of 
the West India Company; they had been sold as waste paper in 1821. 

1889.] The Archives of the State of New York. 107 

These lost records would have told us what the Dutch of 1608-9 knew of 
our continent : how Hudson came to look for a northwest passage to 
Cathay under the 40th degree of northern latitude, and how, where and 
when the first settlements were made on the Hudson and Delaware rivers, 
— information which they certainly must have contained : for the States- 
General referred the English ambassador, in a letter of December 30, 
1664, to the "very perfect registers, relations and journa's of the West 
India Company, provided with all the requisite verifications respecting 
everything that ever occurred in those countries (New Netherland). " 
Considering that when Mr. Brodhead made this historical collection, 
the records of the Company had been sold as waste paper, the reproach 
made by Mr. A^her, a writer on the bibliography of New Netherland, 
is not quite intelligible. He says : "We must regret that, tied down by 
his instructions, he took a somewhat narrow view of his search, and pur- 
posely omitted from his collection a vast store of documents bearing on 
the history of the West India Company." 

The records of the Provincial Dutch government consist of the Reg- 
ister of the Secretary, who acted in the capacity of a modern county clerk, 
justice of the peace, notary public and commissioner of deeds, all rolled 
into one. Four volumes with an aggregate of 1038 pages — written in a 
more or less crabbed hand, but with ink that to- lay (250 years having 
elapsed) is blacker than any modern ink — make this register. 

Six volumes, with 4013 pages, are the Minutes of the Council, in which 
we find petitions of every kind, Indian conferences, orders of Council act- 
ing as administrative, executive, judicial, and military authority. Vol- 
ume XI. to XV., inclusive,' contain 602 letters, written either by or to the 
governing Directors of the West India Company in Amsterdam ; letters 
passed between Director-General Stuyvesant and his subordinates at 
Albany, at the Esopus Kingston), on Long Island, and at the Delaware. 
Vol. XVI., 523 pages, is divided into four parts : the first one, 135 pages, 
giving us the laws and ordinances made by the Director-General and 
Council, and printed by the State, under the editorship of Dr. O'Callaghan, 
as " Laws and Ordinances of New Netherland." — The second and third 
part, 356 pages, contain what ought to be especially interesting to Alban- 
ians: Fort Orange Records, beginning October 4th, 1656, and continued 
with some occasional interruptions to December 30, 1660. They are 
principally the records of the local court, with sentences to offending 
bakers who have sold bread under weight, and to tavern-keepers for 
selling liquor to Indians. One of these Indians, overcome by the drink 
illegally sold to him, had to be conveyed to the fort on a brewer's dray. 
Other decisions of this local court were given in actions for slander ; for 
it seems the old Dutchmen were very much given to gossipping, and did 
not always strictly adhere to the truth of an account as originally reported, 
but considered it necessary to add some more or less bitin<r comments of 
their own, thus increasing the original mouse to the size of an elephant. 
— The fourth part of this same volume — 32 numbers of documents — 
contains writs of appeals from the lower and local courts to the Court of 
Director and Counci 1 . They give a fair idea of the civil procedure under 
the Dutch government. 

In Volume XVII. are Curacao Papers, which are only in so far of in- 
terest for New York history as they throw light upon the commercial activity 
of New York in Kieft's and Stuvvesant's time. Bv inference we mav draw 

Io8 The Archives of /he State of Mew York. [J u tyj 

from these Curacao Papers information concerning the 17th century mode 
of government ; for we must bear in mind that Curacao was like New 
Amsterdam, a colony of the West India Company. 

Volumes XVIII. to XXL, 500 numbers, are Delaware Papers from 
1646 to 1680, which have been translated by me and published under 
authority of the State in 1877 as Vol. XII., Colonial Documents, resp. 
Vol. I., new series. 

All these papers begin at a comparatively late date. The Secretary's 
Register is the earliest, excepting the records of a few land patents. The 
first entry by the Secretary and the first minute of Council are dated in 
April, 1638. We have no letter written in Kieft's time, and thus have 
lost his observations on the quarrel between him and Domine Everardus 
Bogardus, the second husband of the famous Anneke Jans, whose death, 
as was observed at one of the constantly-recurring Anneke Jans-Trinity 
Church trials, has never been proved in court. It is hard to say where 
the missing parts of the Dutch documents and some of the earl}' English 
records may have strayed. Article 12 of the "Capitulation on the Reduc- 
tion of New Netherland, subscribed at the Governor's Bouweiy, August 
27, O. S. 1664," ensured the careful preservation of the archives of the 
Dutch government by the English robbers. In June, 1688, they were 
still in the Secretary's office at New York ; a few months later, " Edmund 
Randolph, then Secretary of y e Dominion of New England and of New 
York, carried away to Boston y e severall Books before Exprest, " says a 
report of commissioners appointed by the Committee of Safety of New 
York to examine the books, etc., in the Secretary's office, dated September 
23, 1689. Comparing the inventory of 1688 with another of the Dutch 
records made in 1753, I have come to the conclusion that the missing 
papers were lost either in their wanderings between New York and Boston, 
or during the brief Dutch interregnum in 1673-4 ; for Governor Ingolds- 
by writes in 1709 to the Lords of Trade and Plantations : "lam well 
informed, that when the Dutch took this place from us, several books of 
records of patents and other things were lost." It may be also that many 
papers were destroyed by the fire which consumed Fort George in New 
York, on the 18th of April, 1741, although Governor Clarke informs the 
same Board of Trade that "most of the records were saved, and I hope 
few were lost." The inventory of 1753 shows that up to the present 
time nothing has since been lost, with ihe exception of a missing account- 
book, and of some things which time has made illegible, and of others 
which the knife of the autograph fiend has cut out. It is difficult to say 
how much has gone, through the latter unscrupulous method, into the 
hands of private parties. The catalogues of autograph collections occa- 
sionally mention papers which seem to have belonged to the New York 
archives ; but it is impossible to prove that they came thence. 

It is equally remarkable and fortunate that during the war of the Revo- 
lution the records became an object of solicitude, both to the Royal Gov- 
ernor and the Provincial Congress. The latter, fearing that the destruction 
of the records would " unhinge the property of numbers in the colony, and 
throw all legal proceedings into the most fatal confusion," requested 
Secretary Bayard in 1775, a descendant of the Provincial Secretary of 
1674, to deposit them in some safe place. Bayard, struggling between 
his duties as a king's officer and his sympathies as a born American, hesi- 
tated to take the papers in his charge, from the place appointed lor their

keeping, but packed them up for removal. Sears' coup de main in No- 
vember, 1775, and his threat to return with the avowed purpose of taking 
them away, induced Governor Tryon to remove "such records as 
were most interesting to the Crown" on board the "Dutchess of Gor- 
don," man-of-war. From this vessel they were sent to the " Asia ; " the 
"Asia " being ordered home, they were transferred to the " Eagle," made 
a voyage to Europe, and came back in the " Warwick " man-of-war, to 
be finally reunited with the papers not most interesting to the Crown. 
The latter had been taken to the house of Secretary Bayard's father in the 
Out Ward, where they were guarded by Capt. Alex. Hamilton's company. 
They followed the Provincial Congress to Kingston, lied to Rochester, 
Ulster County, and after further wanderings came to Albany in 1798. 

An examination hurriedly made by me in 1877, of the 103 volumes 
of Colonial manuscripts, showed that about 300 documents had been 
stolen since Dr. O'Callaghan published in i86fi the calendars of these 
manuscripts. Closer examination, later, proved the thefts to include many 

Mr. Bigelow, then Secretary of State, published my first list of miss- 
ing documents, calling for the return of the property of the State, and a 
month later had the gratification of receiving a package containing sixty 
papers, of which, however, only about twenty were mentioned in the pub- 
lished list. 

I have inadvertently drifted from the Dutch records, a part, into the 
whole collection, and must retrace my steps to Vol. XXII. of Colonial 
manuscripts, although in point of time another series of books should 
follow, of which I shall speak anon. I cannot give such a distinct ana- 
lysis of these volumes, from No. XXII. to CI., Colonial manuscripts, as of 
the preceding Dutch, because their contents are all of the same nature ; 
that is, letters, petitions, claims, accounts, reports, orders, etc., which 
were not entered in the Minutes of Council, but filed away for reference. 
They begin in December, 1664, and end strangely with commissions is- 
sued by the Provincial Congress to officers appointed in the New York 
regiments of the Revolutionary army. The last but one is a commission 
of Martin Beekman as Second Lieutenant in Capt. Wm. Hun's company, 
Col. Jacob Lansing's regiment, First Albany County (Albany City Regi- 
ment), signed by Governor George Clinton, April 4, 1778. 

Of the documents in these volumes, little has, so far, been published. 
Dr. O'Callaghan made random selections for his Documentary History of 
New York, published in four volumes, 1 849— '5 1, and I have published as 
much as the occasion permitted in Vols. XII., XIII., and XIV., or I., 
II., and III., N. S., of Documents Relating to the Colonial History of New 

The Dutch documents are closely followed in time, as I said above, by 
another series, which, for want of a calendar, has not been as much con- 
sulted as it should be. Dr. O'Callaghan never seems to have thoroughly 
examined them, for he mentions this series of 50 volumes rather con- 
temptuously as " only containing the decisions of the Colonial Council." 
They appear on the shelves under different titles, such as General Entries 
(4), Minutes of the Court of Assizes, Orders, Warrants and Letters (2), 
Warrants of Surveys, Indian Treaties arid Council Minutes (28), and in 
referring to them to-night I shall speak of them under the general title 
of Council Minutes. 

I IO The Archives of the State of New York. [July, 

The first volume, General Entries, begins with the arrival of the 
English forces which overpowered the Dutch, and gives the correspond- 
ence between Governor Stuyvesant and the officers of the Duke of York, 
preceding and resulting in the surrender. 

Several volumes of the Council Minutes proper, and periods in others, 
are missing, and thereby we have lost much material relating to the 
history of the administration by that patriotic defender of popular rights, 
the valiant Lieutenant-Governor Jacob Leisler, an able exponent of the 
principles which brought William of Orange to the throne of England. 

The last, No. 28 of the Council Mitiutes, ends with an entry made a 
few days before the evacuation of New York city by the British troops, in 
1783. Each volume has its separate index, but whoever made these in- 
dices had not become an adept in the art of index-making, as some one 
calls this most tiresome kind of literary work. 1 had discovered how 
insufficient and unreliable these so-called tables of contents were, and set 
to work making a calendar and index to the above fifty volumes, so that 
I now am prepared to tell any one who wishes to know what became of 
Capt. Kidd's famous treasures. 

" When first his Royal Highnesse, the Duke of York, took possession 
of this Province, he gave to Gov' Nicholls certain Laws, by which the 
Province was to be governed," sa)s an old entry. Several copies of these, 
called the Duke's Laws, were made, and they were sent to the different dis- 
tricts of Long Island, Delaware, the Esopus and Albany, but only two 
are now known to exist, one in the State Library, the other one in the 
Library of the Long Island Historical Society. These laws were printed 
by the New York Historical Society and by the State of Pennsylvania. 
We have in the State Library another manuscript law-book, called the 
Dongan Laws, and containing the acts passed by the first General Assembly 
of the province during the years 1683 and '84. It has upon its original 
parchment cover a second title, evidently written at a later date : The 
Duke of York's Charter of Liberty and Priviledges to the Inhabitants of 
New York, anno 1683, with Acts of Assembly of that year cV the- year 
168.J.. The laws are mainly a re-enactment ot the Duke s Laws, and 
have never been printed. 

The original colonial laws, passed by the General Assembly of the 
province up to 1775, make nineteen volumes of manuscripts in the office 
of the Secretary of State, of. which such as had not in the mean time 
expired by their own limitation were printed at different periods in 
colonial days. The Bradford copy of 1694 in the State Library was not 
complete, and therefore $1,600 were appropriated by the Legislature of 
1879 to purchase a better copy of the same edition at the Brinley sale in 
1880. It is supposed that this is the first book printed in New York, 
but I have mv doubts whether a small book referring to a controversy 
between New York and Connecticut, of which no copy has as yet turned 
up, does not antecede it by a few months. The warrant for defraying the 
expenses of printing this small volume was found by me while preparing 
a calendar and index to the Council Minutes. 

Bills which failed to become laws, between 16S4 and 1732, fill three 
volumes of MSS., and, though the measures proposed never became 
operative, they show the drift of public opinion during the period covered 
by them. These are in the State Library, as are all MSS. when no other 
place is mentioned. 

18S9.] The Archives of the State of New York. m 

The student of colonial commerce and finances will find much to 
interest him in other manuscript volumes, as eight volumes of Accounts of 
the Treasurer of the Province (1 702-1 776), and forty-three volumes of 
Manifest and Entry Books in the New York Custom House (172 8- 1774). 
Much information coveted by the genealogist and by people hunting for 
estates gone astray is hidden in the two volumes Indentures of Palatine 
Children (ijio-'n), whose parents had succumbed to the hardships of a 
transatlantic voyage after having escaped the cruelty of Roman Catholic 
soldiery in their old-countrv homes ; in forty volumes of Marriage Bonds 
( 1 752— '83), of which the State published an index in i860; and in the 
records kept in the office of the Clerk of the Court of Appeals {Wills and 
Inventories) similar information is to be found. 

A citizen of Albany, General John Taylor Cooper, enriched in 1850 
the State Library with twenty-two volumes of manuscripts, containing 
about seven thousand letters, accounts, etc., written by or for Sir Wm. 
Johnson, the Indian commissioner, to whom not only New York, but 
alb the original English colonies, owe more than he generally receives 
credit for. This collection covers the period from 1738 to 1774, and is 
important for the political, Indian, social, and religious history of New 
York. I regret having said in a book, already published, that extracts 
were given by Dr. O'Callaghan in the Documentary History of New 
York (Vol. II.). It is true that work contains some documents which 
are to be found in the Johnson collection, but the doctor obtained his 
extracts from copies scattered through the above-quoted volumes of 
colonial manuscripts and elsewhere. 

The Letters of Colonel fohn Bradstreet, Deputy Quartermaster General, 
and of General Sir feffrey Amherst, Commander-in-Chief of his Majesty's 
forces in America, between 1755 and 1771, a volume presented to the 
State Library by the Rev. William B. Sprague, are of the first importance 
in the study of the French wars, which extinguished French rule in 

An Abridgment of the Records of Indian Affairs, transacted in the Colony 
of New York from 1678 to 175 1, with a preface by the compiler, is the 
work of Peter Wraxall, Secretary for Indian Affairs under Sir William 
Johnson. It is a manuscript volume of 224 pages, dated at New York 
May 10, 1754. In the introduction Wraxall gives an account of his 
office and its difficulties, saying that the original minutes of the Indian 
commissioners (probably the predecessors of Sir William) were somewhat 
irregularly arranged in four volumes and in part in Dutch, ''of which I 
was my own translator." People who attempt to translate seventeenth 
century Dutch records to-day will know what a sore grievance that must 
have been to Peter Wraxall. 

Another small manuscript volume, The Mythology of the Iroquois 
or Six Nations of Indians, bv James Deane, Senior, of Oneida County, 
contains material probably obtained from the Oneida Indians, living in 
the neighborhood of the writer in the beginning of this century. Deane's 
account differs very little from that given by the Tuscarora Indian, David 
Cusick, in a little volume printed in 1825. 

We find a reflex of the religious and even secular society of the 
colonies during the last century, as seen from the Episcopal point of 
view, in a manuscript volume (107 pp. folio) in Extracts from the Cor- 
respondence of the VeneraHe Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in 

j 12 The Archives of the State of New York r July, 

Foreign Parts, with the Missionaries T. Poyer, S. Seabury, and others, 
from 1704 to 1709. A collection of letters in my hands gives an account 
of the same kind, as seen by ministers of the Dutch Reformed Church. 
These letters cover the period from 1648 to 1776, and are. of course, all 
in Dutch, excepting two in Latin, which passed between the Jesuit mis- 
sionary among the Onondaga Indians, Simon Le Moine, and the first 
minister who ever preached at Albany, Domine Megapolensis. The 
Jesuit is all politeness in his letter, while the domine takes him severely 
and almost rudely to task for adhering to the tenets of the older church. 
Tolerance in religious matters was a virtue unknown to the Dutch founders 
of this colony. 

In all civilized communities, property in the soil is the first evidence 
of settlement. The records, giving us the first evidence, are therefore of 
the highest importance, not only to the historical student, but also to the 
lawyer, and to the already mentioned hunter for stray estates. The 
records of this kind, belonging to the State, must be divided into two sets, 
of which the first comprises only two volumes. These contain the patents 
and conveyances of land dating from the days of Dutch rule and beginning 
with the year 1630. The Indian aeed to Kilian van Rensselaer and his 
partners lor the land surrounding Albany is among the earliest recorded. 

The second set is the English records of the same nature, and must be 
divided into several sub-classes, such as Warrants of Survey and Licenses 
to purchase Indian Lands, already mentioned, Returns of Survey, Books 
of Deeds (19 vols.), Books of Patents (14 vols.), and Land Papers (34 
vols.), the last sixty-seven volumes being in the office of the Secretary of 
State. All these records give us as complete a history of the way in which 
the colony of New York gained its population as at this day. it is possible 
to obtain without following the many private histories of real estate, which 
are closely connected with genealogical research. The above-mentioned 
Books of Deeds contain papers of miscellaneous character, widely differ- 
ing from deeds, such as commissions, letters of denization, licenses of 
schoolmasters, etc. Of the Land Papers, a calendar was published by the 
State in 1864. 

The colonial authorities of New York had a good deal to do with- 
settling difficulties between other colonies. The history of how the set- 
tlements were effected is told in the volume entitled Minutes of the 
Proceedings of Commissioners for settling the Boundaries of the Colony of 
Rhode Island, eastward towards the Massachusetts Bay, 1741, and in 
another, Minutes of' the Commissioners appointed to examine, etc., the Con- 
troversy between Connecticut anil the Mohegan Indians, 1743. 

These are all the records relating to the colonial period of our State 
history. I shall only briefly men lion the collection containing docu- 
ments dated after 1776. The first to be considered, because it laps over 
into the colonial period, are the thirty odd volumes of Clinton Papers, 
containing the official and private correspondence of the first Governor 
of the State of New York. I know nothing of the first part of this 
collection, which was not in my charge, but can tell from the second, 
acquired within the last ten years, that George Clinton, when member of 
the Provincial General Assembly, had, like his later political antagonist, 
Aaron Burr, to fight a duel. Of the papers emanating from Governor 
Tompkins, I know only that they are in the State Library, but am 
unacquainted with their contents. 

1889.] The Archives of the State of New York. jjo 

Some ten or twelve years ago the State bought from Henry Stevens, a 
Vermonter living in London, a vast lot of documents relating to Vermont. 
The State of Vermont had refused to purchase them ; why, 1 do not know, 
nor can I surmise a reason, as these papers have not yet been arranged. 

For the history of the Revolution and the first half century of New 
Vork's statehood, we have forty-three volumes, called Assembly Papers, 
ten volumes, the Journal of the New York Convention and Committee 
of Safety, twelve volumes Revolutionary Papers, and thirty volumes 
miscellaneous. Out of these ninety-five manuscript volumes I have, 
during the last five years, collected the names of the soldiers who fought 
more than a hundred years ago against the tyranny of the British minis- 
ters. The result of this labor was published at the expense of the State 
in 1887. But only during the last few weeks I have learned that some 
papers, important for this work, have been discovered in the Comptroller's 
office, where I thought every possible hiding-place had been investigated 
by me, while others turn up in private hands. 

The State Library has acquired within the last twelve months copies 
of documents in the Government archives at Paris, which, if not always 
relating to the history of this State, are almost unique in their value for 
the student of American general history. 1 will mention only the Jour- 
nal des Services principaux de Paul Jones, Ca?npagnes du comle d 'Estaing 
en Amerique, and a number of letters written by General de Kalb. The 
first of these has been seen by writers of Paul Jones's biography, but no 
extracts have been given anywhere. General de Kalb's letters throw a 
more or less amusing and sometimes very intense light upon the con- 
dition of the American army during the Revolution. 1 hope that the 
Legislature will continue an appropriation for this subject, as the list of 
papers still to be obtained contains matters of considerable interest for 
New York colonial history. 

Of all the States in the Union, our State is, as far as I have been able 
to ascertain, the richest in manuscript material for its history, but perhaps 
no other State has done as little to make these manuscripts available to 
the public. It seems to me a well-known English writer well describes 
the reason for it in the following words. He says : "The average Anglo- 
Saxon has at heart a considerable contempt, if not for literature, at least 
for those who produce it. Literature, in his mind, is connected with the 
idea of garrets and extreme poverty ; and therefore, having the national, 
inborn race respect for money, he in secret, if not in public, despises it. 
A tree is known by its fruits."

Cornelius Henry De Lamater, born at Rhinebeck, N. Y., Aug. 30, 
182 1, died at his residence, 424 West Twentieth Street, New York, Feby. 
7, 1889, aged 67 yrs. 5 mos - & 8 days, and was interred at Woodlawn 

Glande Le Maistre, the first ancestor of the De Lamaters in America, 
was of French extraction, as was also his wife, Hester Du Bois, whom he 
married in Amsterdam in 1652. Soon after their marriage they came to 
America and settled at Flatbush, removing to Harlem about 1662. 

Their son Abraham, born at Flatbush, 1656, married, in 1682, at 
Kingston, N. Y. , Celeste Vernoie. 

Cornelius, son of Abraham, bp. at Kingston, May 6, 1683, married 
Sept. 28, 1703, Margaret Van Steenbergh (daughter of Thomas I. Van 
Steenbergh and Marie Metselaer). 

Abraham, son of Cornelius, bp. at Kingston, 19 Jany. 171 8, married 
Sarah Van Gaasbeek, (daughter of Abraham Van Gaasbeek [Chambers] 
and Sara Bayard). 

Cornelius, son of Abraham, bp. at Kingston, Nov. 4, 1744, married 
26 Sept. 1767, at Germantown, N. Y. , Rachel Sleight, (daughter of 
Benj. Sleght and Anna Swart). 

William, son of Cornelius, born at Rhinebeck, Mch. 24, 1789, mar- 
ried Eliza Douglass. * 

Cornelius Henry De Lamater, their only child, and the subject of this 
sketch, came to New York with his parents in 1824, when three years 
of age. In 1843, June 14, he married, at Poughkeepsie, Ruth Oakley 
Caller, daughter of John Caller and Sarah Southwick, and a direct descen- 
dant of Laurence and Cassandra Southwick, the persecuted Quakers, ban- 
ished from Salem in 1659, who are mentioned in Whittier's poem. Mr. 
De Lamater's wife, five daughters and a son survive him. At the 
age of sixteen he entered the Phoenix Foundry of James Cunningham, 
in West Street, where his father had held a responsible position as cashier 

* The writer thinks it proper to call attention to the exceeding inaccuracy of the 
published " Delamater Genealogy " by Walworth.

and confidential adviser. When he was about twenty-one, Mr. Cun- 
ningham retired from business, and C. H. Delamater and Peter Hogg 
continued the foundry, under the firm name of Hogg & De Lamater. 
In 1850 they removed to the foot of West Thirteenth Street and started the 
extensive establishment now known as the De Lamater Iron Works. At 
an early age Mr. De Lamater developed great interest and ability in ques- 
tions of engineering improvements. Inventors were always welcomed, 
and his works were well known as the "Asylum " where brains and cap- 
ital could meet. Here Capt. John Ericsson found a warm and appreci- 
ative friend, ready to use his wealth and skill to aid in giving to the 
world his valuable inventions. This friendship continued until the death 
of Mr. De Lamater, which occurred only one month previous to that of 
Capt. Ericsson, who seemed overwhelmed at his loss. In the few soli- 
tary weeks that remained, Ericsson, always a recluse, shut himself up 
more closely than ever, and when questioned if he were ill, sadly ex- 
claimed, " I am all alone ! " testifying how deeply he missed that unfail- 
ing sympathy. Ericsson had appointed Mr. De Lamater as one of his 

During the Civil War, the Monitor and Dictator, inventions of Ericsson, 
were constructed by Mr. De Lamater in an incredibly short space of time. 
The hot-air invention of Capt. Ericsson as a substitute for steam was first 
introduced into the Ericsson, which was built entirely by De Lamater. 
The Iron Witch, the first iron steamboat that ran on the Hudson River, 
was built at his works. He contracted with the Spanish Government to 
build in eight months thirty gunboats at a cost of $60,000 each in gold. 
They were ready and delivered in seven months from date of contract. 
The Spanish Government bestowed on him the title of "Knight of the 
Older of Isabella the Catholic." 

Although his early entrance into business made his school-days brief, 
Mr. De Lamater was a student to the end of his life, and kept his excel- 
lent library in constant use. With all the many claims upon his time he 
found leisure to enjoy his beautiful farm near Northport, Long Island. 
He was a great admirer of nature, of delicate and tender feelings, and 
kind and genial in his manners. Of high moral principles, he possessed 
such a keen sense of justice that he suffered wrong rather than wrong 
another. Unselfish and sympathetic, he gave liberally, and was always 
ready to listen and advise. His private unostentatious charities were

Proceedings of the Society. — During the spring months the Society has held 
its regular semi-monthly meetings, and much interest has been manifested in the 
addresses that have been delivered. On the evening of March 15th Mr. Betts read a 
paper, written by William Alfred Jones, Esq., entitled " Recollections of an Old 
New Yorker." Mr. Jones' memory treasures many interesting incidents of the gen- 
eration that is gone, and his paper was a valuable contribution to social history. 
April 12th Mr. Amory S. Carhart, of Brooklyn, delivered an address upon " Jacques 
Cartier, the Discoverer of Canada," which showed deep research in this important 
but little studied chapter of the early exploration of our continent. Mr. Berthold 
Fernow, for a long time and until quite recently Keeper of the Records at Albany, in 
his paper, delivered April 26th, on " The Archives of the State of New York," showed 
the necessity of legislation to preserve the rich historical treasures of the State 
Library, which are rapidly becoming lost or destroyed through the negligence or 
carelessness of the State authorities. This valuable paper will be found in this num- 
ber of the Record. May 10th Dr. E. S. F. Arnold read a paper on " Samuel Pren- 
tiss, of Vermont, a Model Senator and .Statesman," which it is proposed to print in a 
future number of the Record. May 24th Mr. Cecil Hampden Cutts Howard, assist- 
ant librarian of the Astor Library, gave an account of " The Pepperrell Portraits." 
Mr. Howard, who is a descendant of Sir William Pepperrell, has, in the course of 
his researches into the history of the Cutts family, traced out the whereabouts of a 
number of portraits of the old hero of Louisburg and his children and grandchildren, 
and this paper was an exceedingly interesting resumS of his labors in that direction. 
At the June meeting no paper was read. The next regular meeting will be held on 
Friday evening, October II, 1889, and it is expected that the Society will then be 
occupying its new quarters in the building adjoining the one in which it is now tem- 
porarily accommodated. 

Information is desired about the ancestry of Susan Makson, who married 
Samuel Cornell about the (middle or early part of the last century. She died in 
Flushing in 177S. The Mabsons are a North Carolina family, believed to be extinct 
in the male line. 

1889.] Notes and Queries. j ^g 

Mr. J. Atkins Noyes finds in a copy of a part of the parish records of Cholder- 
ton, sent to him in 1S88 by the present rector, the Rev. Edwin P. Barrow, the fol- 
lowing variations from Mr. Constant's extracts (Record, Vol. XX., p. 67) : Line 3, aet. 
89 reads "63." Line 19, Denton reads " Penton." And this additional entry under 
Burials: " Robert Noyes, brother of Mr. William Noyes, Jan. 20 th , 1659, an. aet. 

Information is wanted concerning the name of the wife and the date and 
place of the death of Moses Noyes, born in Newbury, Mass., 12 May, 1744, son of 
Moses and Susanna (Jaques) Noyes ; tb~ name of the wife and the date and place 
of the death of Moses Noyes, born in Newbury, Mass., 16 Dec, 1743, son of Moses

The wife of Lindley Murray (Record, Vol. XX., p. 89) was Hannah (b. 4 Nov., 
1748), the third d. of Thomas Dobson (b. 6 Nov.,1719), whose wife was Elizabeth, d. 
of Samuel and Hannah (Smith) Bowne. Her eldest sister, Mary, m., 13 March, 1763, 
Reginald Armstrong, and the second sister, Elizabeth, m., 13 Nov., 1765, Thomas 
Pearsall. Hannah, in my memo., was m. 4 Nov., 1767. She did not return in her 
widowhood to America, but died and was buried in York. "At New York, on Wed- 
nesday, the 9th inst., at the very advanced age of 93 years, Mr. Thomas Dobson, of 
that city. A member of the Society of Friends, and father of Mrs. Murray, wife of 
the celebrated Lindley Murray." U. S. Gazette (Phila.), 14 Sept., 1812. He was the 
son of Thomas and Mary Dobson, and married a second wife. T. H. M. 

The Pennsylvania Society of Sons of the Revolution completed the first year of its 
existence April 3, at which date the annual dinner was given at the Bellevue, Phila- 
delphia. This Society, the offspring of that of New York, has among it many old 
names of Revolutionary fame: Wayne, Cadwalader, McKean, Lewis, Biddle, Rawle, 
Morris, Washington. Hazelhurst, Fraser, Hutchinson, North, Marshall, Craig, etc. 
The pamphlet, of twenty-three pages, containing its "Constitution and By-Laws, List of 
Officers and Members," is of interest to genealogists, as the kinship of descendants 
from those who served in the Revolution there given is a clew to the family pedigrees. 
The object of this society, composed of many able and distinguished men, is like that 
of New York, to foster an interest in Revolutionary history, and especially to perpet- 
uate " the American idea" and promote patriotism. 

The Home Journal (New York, Feb. 20 and 27, 1SS9) prints an excellent paper 
on the Old Park Theatre, by our accomplished corresponding member, William 
Alfred Jones. Written in that gentleman's graceful manner, it is full of interest, 
and will recall to older New-Yorkers the memories of their younger days, while a 
later generation may find in it reminiscences and criticisms of great value. Two 
remarkable episodes, so to speak, however, might have been mentioned — the famous 
personations of the two Dromios by Barnes and Placide, about 1S30, and the 
brilliant winter of 1847, when Mrs. Mason (Miss Wheatley) returned for a brief 
period to the stage and drew all New York to the Park Theatre to see her Juliet, 
and when Edmund Kean played there with his wife, a fine young matron who, ten 
years before, as Miss Ellen Tree, had won the hearts of the New-Yorkers. 
Can any reader of the Record furnish the following information ? 

From what port in Holland, in what ship, at what port in the United States, did 
Jacob Le Roy, the ancestor of the Le Roy family of New York, 'leave, sail, and land, 
and at what date between the years 1746 and 1753? Who are the following Le Roys 
mentioned in " Documents relating to Colonial History of the State of New York?

John Ericsson, the famous engineer, who died in this city on Friday, March S th , 
1S89, was born July 31 st , 1803, in Langbanshyttan, province of Wermland, Sweden. 
His father, Olof, was a mining proprietor, and his brother, Nils Ericsson, was a 
colonel of engineers, and subsequently became chief engineer of the Swedish railways. 
John Ericsson's boyhood was passed with engineers, and he had an opportunity of 
studying the machinery used in his father's mines. His mechanical talent was thus 
early in life developed. He made many drawings and plans of mechanical works, 
original in design. The attention of Count Platen, the Swedish engineer, was called 
to young Ericsson's efforts, and he was appointed a mechanical engineer cadet. In 
1820 he entered the Swedish army as ensign. He resigned his captaincy in the army 
in iS27, and turned his attention to inventing. His inventions were numerous, the 
principal ones being the locomotive " Novelty," a steam fire-engine, the caloric engine, 
his greatest invention the screw-propeller, and the famous " Monitor." Hi* sun-motor 
and the war vessel the " Destroyer " were his latest inventions. Numerous honors were 
bestowed upon Captain Ericsson. He was a knight commander of several royal 
orders. He received the thanks of Congress, and was a member of many scientific 
associations in Europe and America. E. T. 

SIMEON BALDWIN Chittenden, merchant and congressman, was born in Guild- 
ford, Conn., March 29, 1814, and died in Brooklyn, N. V., Ap. 14. 18S9. He was 
a descendant in the seventh generation of William Chittenden, one of the founders 
of his native town in 1639, through Thomas, Josiah, Simeon, Simeon, and Abel, his 
father. His business life was begun as a clerk in New Haven, Conn., at the age of 
fourteen. Subsequently he was a merchant in the same place. In 1842 he established 
himself as a dry-goods merchant in this city, having his residence in Brooklyn. In 
1874 he was elected congressman, and thus faithfully served his country for seven 
years. He was for a time vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce, and held 
many other prominent positions in benevolent and. secular organizations. His bene- 
factions were large and numerous, the chief being the noble library building of Yale 
University, for the construction of which he at first contributed $100,000, to which 
amount he made additions. He leaves a son of the same name, and grandchildren. 
His first wife was Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Sherman Hartwell. of Warren, Conn.; 
she was born Sept. 29, 1S18, and died Sept. 3. 1S52. He married, second, Oct. 11, 
1S54, Cornelia Baldwin, widow of the Rev. Walter Colton, U. S. N. Mr. Chittenden 
was the survivor of the six incorporators of the Church of the Pilgrims in Brooklyn, 
of which he was an influential and energetic member. He was buried in Greenwood 

George Sylvester Hare was born at South Egremont, Berkshire Co., Mass., 
Nov. 21, 1824. His father, Levi Hare, was a son of Francis Hare (originally 
spelled Heare) a quiet and respected citizen of Irish parentage. His mother, Rhoda 
Curtis, was a daughter of Col. Joseph Curtis, who removed from Newington, Ct., to 
Egremont in 1782, and he became a large landed proprietor. The grandfather of 
Col. Joseph Curtis came from Stratford, Warwickshire. England, and settled in 
Stratford, Ct., A. D. 1632. Rebecca Deming, wife of Col. Joseph Curtis, and 
grandmother of the subject of this sketch, was a woman of unusual strength of charac- 
ter and kindliness of heart. Her brothers, Capt. Martin Deming (who, a lad, was 
present at the battle of Bunker Hill) and Sylvester Deming (from whom Dr. Hare 
received his name), settled in Arlington, Vt., in 1779. and soon became wealthy and 
honored citizens. By their influence and generous gifts they have left a lasting 
impress upon that little New England town. 

Dr. Hare was the youngest and last surviving of six children — four sons, all of 
whom were men of more than ordinary mental ability. His eldest brother, Levi H. 
(lately deceased), of San Buenaventura, Cal., was for many years a successful teacher, 
and contributor to local magazines on subjects of scientific interest. An academic 
education, received at Egremont and Sheffield, Mass., and later at Austerlitz, N. Y., 
prepared Dr. Hare for Harvard College, which he was about to enter (expecting to 
adopt the laiv as his profession), when a change of views, resulting in a change of 
life-purpose, led him to enter the ministry. The study of theology was pursued 
under Rev. Stephen M. Vail, ex-president of the Theological School at Concord, 

1889.] Obituaries. \a\ 

N.H., and in 1S47 Dr. Hare entered upon his pastoral work. He married, Sept. 1st 
of the same year, Sarah Crawford, a daughter of Rev. John Crawford, a minister 
of the M. E. Church. 

The youthful preacher soon became a power in the ministry, and during a pastor- 
ate of more than forty years filled the prominent pulpits of his own denomination in 
New York, Boston, Poughkeepsie, Newark, Newburgh, and other cities, serving two 
pastorates each in four conspicuous city appointments. The degree of A. M. was 
conferred upon him in 1854 by the Wesleyan University ; and two years later he 
received the degree of Doctor of Divinity from the Northwestern University. In 
1880, 1884, and 1888, three times successively, Dr. Hare was elected by the New 
York Conference to represent that body in the General Conference of the Church, 
a Council which is composed of more than a hundred annual conferences in nearly all 
the countries of the globe. At the time of his death he was serving his third year as 
Presiding Elder of the Poughkeepsie District, an appointment involving the care of 
nearly seventy ministers with their parishes. With the exception of newspaper and 
magazine articles on religious subjects and the topics of the day. Dr. Hare has never 
written anything for publication ; and, although engaged at the time of his death on a 
work on pulpit elocution, his MS. will be withheld from the public, in compliance 
with his request. He died at his home in Poughkeepsie, of cerebral paralysis, suc- 
ceeded by apoplexy, Jan. 9, 1S89, leaving a wife and one daughter. His remains 
were interred at Danbury, Ct. 

The Rev. Dr. Henry Immanuel Schmidt, Gebhard Professor Emeritus of the 
German Language and Literature in Columbia College, N. Y., peacefully and pain- 
lessly closed his long and honorable life on Monday, February ir, 1889. 

Dr. Schmidt was born Dec. 21, 1806, at the Moravian village (or settlement of 
the United Brethren) of Nazareth, Pa. His father was a distinguished physician at 
that place, who had studied his profession at Jena arid Goettingen, Germany, a man 
of letters, and a strict disciplinarian of the old school. The son was, from the first, 
surrounded by an atmosphere of learning, was constantly stimulated to intellectual 
effort, and aided in his studies. He was sent early to school, and practically com- 
pleted his course, including his preparation for the ministry, when he was but little 
over 19 years of age. The language of his home was the purest German, and nearly 
all his classical and professional studies were carried on through the medium of the 
German language. He acquired an intimate knowledge of the German language, and 
an extensive acquaintance with German literature. 

Dr. Schmidt, when a youth, desired to be a physician, but at his baptism he had 
been solemnly dedicated by his father to the work of the ministry, and he sacrificed 
his preference to the fulfillment of the promise made for him. 

He never regretted his consecration, though he labored under great disadvantage 
through an excessive timidity in public speaking, which he could not entirely over- 
come. He was admitted to the ministry of the Lutheran church in 1829. Although 
at various times subsequently he was pastor of churches, and continued, to the end of 
his life, to exercise the functions of his priestly office in occasional sermons, and in 
ministering to the comfort of persons in affliction, for which latter service his sympa- 
thetic nature, musical voice, and tender manner peculiarly fitted him, yet his chief work 
was that of a teacher. 

On the completion of his studies, academic and theological, at Nazareth Hall, Pa., 
he became a teacher in that institution, and for three years, lS26-'2g. gave instruction 
there in the common English branches, in Latin, French, Spanish, on the pianoforte, 
and in drawing and painting. He subsequently opened a young ladies' seminary and 
conducted it for two years, i829~'3l ; was assistant professor in both the academic and 
theological departments of Hartwick Seminary, i833-'36; professor of German in Penn- 
sylvania College at Gettysburg, Pa., i838-'43; principal of an academy at Rhinebeck, 
N.Y., 1843; principal of Hartwick Seminary, iS45-'47; and was elected Gebhard Pro- 
fessor of the German Language and Literature in Columbia College, N. Y., Nov. 1, 
1847. He entered upon the discharge of the duties of this last-named office in 1848, 
and continued, with that fidelity which was characteristic of him, to instruct his classes 
for nearly a third of a century. In October, 1880, his health, which had not been 
strong for some time, utterly failed him. On the first day of November following, 
precisely thirty-three years from the date of his election to the professorship, he 
tendered his resignation of it. The Trustees of the College accepted his resignation 
with regret, directed that his name " be continued on the roll of college officers under 
the title of Gebhard Professor Emeritus of the German Language and Literature," 

1 42 Book Notices. [July, 

instructed the Library Committee " to cause the portrait of Dr. Schmidt to be painted 
and placed in the gallery of portraits of former college officers," and granted him a 
pension for the remainder of his days. 

As a teacher, Professor Schmidt was scrupulously exact in the performance of every 
duty, sympathetic with the students in their studies and trials, and, in his treatment 
of them, unvaryingly polite and just. During his long period of service in Columbia he 
endeared himself to hundreds of men, who cherish his name with affectionate regard. 
He endeared himself also to his colleagues in the Board of the College, who, on 
his lamented death, caused to be entered on their minutes the following : 

" Prof. Schmidt's service here was marked by loyalty to the college, by fidelity 
and loving kindness in his relations with the students, and, in his relations with his 
associates, by never-failing courtesy and consideration. 

" The Board directs this entry to be made, as a testimonial of its regard for his 
character and its affection for his memory." j. H. V. A. 


Chambers's Encyclop.-edia : a Dictionary of Universal Knowledge. New 
edition, Vols. I., II., and III. J. B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia, iSSS-'Sg. 

This edition of one of the most popular and useful works of its character ever issued 
has been thoroughly revised, and a large number of the important articles concerning 
the new world have been contributed by American writers, thus obviating the objec- 
tion frequently made to foreign cyclopaedias that they are exceedingly inaccurate in 
matters relating to the United States. The many colored maps and numerous illustra- 
tions in this new edition cannot be too highly commended to our readers. The work 
will be completed in ten volumes. J. G. w. 

Chickamauga. By John B. Turchin, late Brigadier-General United States Vol- 
unteers. Illustrated with eight maps. Fergus Printing Company, Chicago, 18S9. 

This beautifully printed octavo volume is the first of a series which Gen. Turchin 
proposes to prepare of the noted battles fought for the Union during the late civil war. 
Chickamauga is exhaustively treated by the author, who took part in that famous con- 
test, and has written an enduring work, to which all future historians of the war will 
have to go for information. No American military library will be complete without it, 
and we heartily commend it to those interested in the subject. Its value is greatly 
enhanced by an admirable index extended to fifty-six pages. J. G. W. 

A History ok the Allerton Family, 1585 to 1885, and a Genealogy 
of the Descendants of Isaac Allerton. By Walter S. Allerton. 8vo, pp. 166. 
New Vork. Published by the Author. 1888. 

This creditable book has the somewhat unusual virtue of beginning at the beginning 
and going straight on to the end. It is wholly free from the idle archaeological and 
heraldic irrelevancies which so often disfigure similar productions It begins honestly 
with Isaac Allerton, one of the Mayflower " pilgrims'' (as they are sometimes called, 
though it is not absolutely easy to see why), and traces the history of his descendants 
with much clearness and precision, saying neither more nor less than is necessary. 

Colonial and Revolutionary History of the Lockwood Family in 
America, from A. D. 1630. Compiled by Frederic A. Holden and E. Dunbar 
Lockwood. Svo, pp. xxvi., SS4. Philadelphia. Printed privately. 1889. 

This elegant and costly volume contains the history of the descendants of Robert 
Lockwood, who came from England about 1630, and settled in Watertown, Massa- 
chusetts, where six of his ten children were born. His progeny has multiplied into a 
very large family. The names, descent, alliances, and occupations of nearly four 
thousand members or representatives of this family are given in this elaborate book, 
which is much more than an ordinary genealogy. It is the result of twelve years of 
labor, study, and investigation, and it reflects credit upon the Zealand industry of the

Origin, History, and Genealogy of the Buck Family. By Cornelius B. 
Harvey. 8vo, pp. 273. J. J. Griffiths. Jersey City, N. J., 1889. 

This is an account of a respectable family of Connecticut farmers, tracing, in both 
the male and female lines, the history of the descendants of the settlers, who appear 
to have been two Henry and Emanuel, or Enoch, Buck. This part of the work has 
been prepared with much care and diligence, and it is concise and clear. It is hardly 
worth while, however, to increase the size and cost of books of this character by insert- 
ing introductions treating of English families of the same name, unless a relationship 
can be clearly made out, which has not been done in this instance. The heraldry of 
the book requires careful revision ; and the writer has expressed himself somewhat 
incautiously in saying : " The Reformation set on foot by an Augustine monk begat 
Puritanism, and Puritanism begat the Republic of the United States." We hardly 
think that the contemporary Churchmen of New York, Virginia, and the Carolinas, or 
the Roman Catholics of Maryland, or the Lutherans of Delaware, or the Friends of 
Pennsylvania, would have assented to such a proposition. 

Number Ten Year Book of the (Collegiate) Reformed Protestant Dutch 
Church of the City of New York, Published by Authority. A. D. 1889. 
8vo, pamphlet, pp. 94. 

The year book of this venerable corporation, antedating all other organizations in 
our city, has a value and interest to the historian and genealogist. In addition to the 
usual parochial information and statistics, the series contain numerous biographies 
and other matter worthy of preservation. The present number has a biographical 
sketch of the Rev. Gerardus Arense Kuypers, D. D., 1766-1833, with an artistic like- 
ness. His father, the founder of the family in this country, was the Rev. Warmoldus 
Kuypers, born in Holland in 1732, who died in the ministry at Schraalenburgh, 
N. J., in 1797. The names of his children and grandchildren are recorded in the 
sketch, from which it appears that no descendant in the line of Gerardus now bears 
the surname of Kuypers. The Rev. Doctor, being "very naturally disinclined " to 
conduct church services in the English language, although so desired, continued to 
preach in Dutch to diminishing congregations, giving way now and then to those who 
preferred English, until 1803, when he made a full surrender. The year book closes 
with an address on " The Hymns of the New Testament," by the Rev. Edward B. 
Coe, one of the ministers of the corporation. 

John Leigh of Agawam (Ipswich), Massachusetts, 1634-1671, and his 
Descendants of the Name of Lee. By William Lee. 8vo, pp. viii., 498. Small 
4to. Albany, N. Y. : Joel Munsell's Sons. 1888. 

We congratulate the author upon this very handsome history of one of the families 
of Lee in America, which appear to be no less than eleven in number. The history 
of the family of John Lee of Farmington, Conn., has been published by Sarah Marsh 
Lee (Norwich, 1878), and that of Thomas Lee of Saybrook by the Rev. William H. 
Hill (Albany, 1851), and it is to be further illustrated in a series of biographical and 
genealogical monographs, now preparing by .Mr. and Mrs. Edward E. Salisbury of 
New Haven. The history of the family of Richard Lee of Virginia, 1641, has been 
written by Edward C. Mead (New York, 1868), and by the Rev. Frederick George 
Lee, D. C. L. (London, 1884). 'The typographical execution of the present work does 
great credit to the publishers, and its literary merits do equal credit to the modesty 
and diligence of the author. A brief and carefully written dissertation upon the Lees 
of Great Britain, though it have no immediate bearing upon the subject of the book 
(for the author does not pretend to trace his descent beyond 1634), is, nevertheless, 
useful in illustrating the pedigree of the Virginian Lees. A brief account, partly 
bibliographical, partly genealogical, of the Lees of America, is well done, and will be 
useful. The arrangement of names in a single index is especially commendable. 

America Heraldica. A Compilation of Coats of Arms, Crests, and 
Mottoes of Prominent American Families settled in this Country before 
1800. Edited by E. de V. Vermont. Part V. New York, 1889. 

In closing the first volume of this elaborate and useful work, the editor modestly 
observed that his book was comprehensive but not exhaustive. Such an affirmation 
implied (to use his own words) the promise that his earnest and conscientious efforts 
should be directed toward the task of completing, correcting, and beautifying his first 
attempt. In other words, his profounder researches pointed out to him the necessity of

enlarging his book, and of adding to it many tilings to which his attention had been 
directed in the course of his earlier studies. The present number of -America Heraldica 
is the first of three which will form a second volume. The RECORD (Vol. XVIII., pp. 
21, 129) has already given the first volume two strict, careful, and impartial criticisms, 
and it will be unnecessary to go over the same ground again. We observe in the 
present number the results of experience and study. The work is no longer an 
experiment, but a success. The author writes with the confidence of a man who is 
master of Ids subject. There are many improvements in matters of detail. The 
crests, properlv tinctured, accompany the arms ; and the blazon is inserted in the text, 
instead of being relegated to a dictionary at the end. Several documents, useful no 
doubt for certain purposes, but of no great interest to others than New-Englanders, 
have been inserted. Among these are the Gore roll of arms and a list of passengers 
in the Mayflower. A catalogue of book-plates is large, but perhaps not quite complete. 
The Christian name of Daniel Horsmanden, the celebrated chief Justice of New 
York, might have been added, and the name of Richard Harison might have been 
spelt correctly. His family is quite distinct from any of the Harrisons. The book- 
pi. ue of Benjamin Kissam gives the arms of Daniel Whitehead, which the Kissams 
derived from an ancestress, and which they appear to have used in good faith, suppos- 
ing them to be their own. The general plan of the continuation is the same as that 
of the former volume. Resides the improvements already mentioned, the notices of 
the families are fuller ami longer. At the same time they have been prepared with 
much clearness and precision, and they indicate a conscientious determination to say 
neither more nor less than the exact truth. Genealogists, who appreciate the value 
of arms in tracing descents, will understand the utility, and indeed necessity, of such 
a work as this. 

The History of Milton, Mass., 1640 ro 18S7. Edited by A. K. Teele. 
Half morocco, pp. 668. With maps, illustrations, and blank leaves. 

Mr. Teele has written an interesting history of a venerable Massachusetts town, 
which, from small beginnings, has a population of about 3,500 inhabitants, and re- 
quires for its story a large octavo volume. Like the names of many other places, the 
origin of that of Milton is not certainly known, but probably it was in memory of a 
place in England of the same name with which >ome of its early settlers had been 
associated. It is a place of great natural beauty, ami within its borders is the Great 
Blue Hill, which, in the Indian language, gives us name to the Hay State. It is the 
highest elevation on the Atlantic coast south of Maine, and the land first sighted by 
the mariner coming from the Old World. A house was built in the town as early as 
1034. although by the seal the date of settlement was 1640. In its Indian, Colonial, 
Revolutionary, and subsequent history are many facts for the history of the State and 
country. The first piano made in this country was the work of Benjamin Crehore. a 
resident of Milton. The tirst grist-mill in New England, and the first powder-mill 
in the country, are claimed for this town. Here, too, was built in 1S26 the tirst rail- 
road in the United States, extending from the Quincy quarries to Neponset River. 
The blocks of granite for the Bunker Hill monument were by this means carried to a 
place on the river convenient for shipping. 

Some curious things are found in this history. Among its numerous organizations 
1- " The Milton Horse-Thief Society." organized in 1S19, when horse-thieves were 
more numerous than in our day. The membership is numerous at this time, and its 
financial condition is excellent. 

Appendix "B" contains the Rev. Peter Thacher's journal, hitherto unprinted, 
extending from Jan.. 1679. to Feb. 27 th . 1009, twenty-six pages in length. Like the 
celebrated diary of Judge Sewall. it is of great interest to any student who enjoys 
glimpses of the past. Two such must suffice : 

'• May 7, 1(170 : I bought an Indian of Mr. Cheekley, and was to pay ^5 a month 
after I received her. and five pounds more in a quarter of a year." 

" Aug. iS. [679 : Came home and found my Indian girl had liked to have knocked 
my Theodora on the head by letting her fall, whereupon I took .1 good walnut stick 
and beat the Indian to purpose, till she promised to do so no more." 

It is to be regretted that the owner of this interesting journal would not allow it 
to be printed complete, but suppressed certain portions. The Boston Record com- 
missioners have done the same in at least one of their publications. Is this a weakness 
peculiar to our Massachusetts brethren ? 

Some important omissions in the index are discoverable.

Vol. XX. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1SS9. No. 4. 


By Edmund S. F. Arnold. 

The life of the late Judge Samuel Prentiss seems to me to illustrate so 
well what a model statesman, without disregarding just and proper party 
affiliations, should be in this much-vaunted Republic, that for intro- 
ducing a brief memoir of him here I make no apology other than for 
the imperfect manner in which my task is accomplished. 

We learn that the family of Judge Prentiss is traceable in England as 
far back as 13 1 S. His immediate ancestor in this country was Captain 
Thomas Prentiss, born about 1620 in England, who settled in Newtown, 
Mass., and distinguished himself in the war with King Philip. From 
this Captain Prentiss the Judge was sixth in descent, being the son of 
Dr. Samuel Prentiss, a surgeon in the Revolutionary army, and he (the 
Judge) was born in 1782 at Stonington, Connecticut. At a very early 
period of his life his father moved to Northfield, Massachusetts. There 
the son was educated, and had the advantage of classical tuition under 
the care of the Rev. Samuel C. Allen. At the age of nineteen he entered 
the office of Samuel Vose of Northfield, as a law student, subsequently 
that of John W. Blake of Brattleborough, Vermont, and already in 1802. 
at the age of twenty, was admitted to the bar. In the following year he 
settled in Montpelier, which he made his permanent home, and com- 
menced the practice of the law. In 1804 he married Lucretia, eldest 
daughter of Edward Houghton of Northfield, Mass., and was now fairly 
launched on the voyage of life. 

Possessed of great natural abilities, he had been and continued to be 
an indefatigable student. Every moment during the day that he could 
spare from professional duties he devoted to the acquisition of farther 
legal knowledge, extending to that of international law. His evenings 
were given to making thorough acquaintance with the best English classic 
authors to improve his style. He had a profound veneration for the law, 
regarding it as the highest and best earthly exponent of Divine justice, 
and hence he would take no case where success would entail what he 
believed would be a wrong to the opposite party. That his success should 
be great and his progress rapid under such circumstances, is not surpris- 
ing. Not only did his practice quickly increase, but his fame soon 
spread beyond local bounds, and ere many years had passed he came to 
be regarded as the most prominent lawyer in the State. The means of 
travel being in those days comparatively limited, the efforts of most of his 
professional brethren were confined within narrow bounds ; he, however, 

IA& Judge Samuel Prentiss of Vermont. [Oct., 

was called to all parts of the State, and almost in all great cases. His 
intimate knowledge of law in all its branches, his unsullied reputation, and 
purity of motive pointed him out as a suitable occupant of the judicial 
bench ; accordingly in 1822, at the age of forty, he was elected to an 
associate justiceship of the Supreme Court of the State ; he however at 
this time declined the honor, the care and support of his large family 
demanding all his means and energies. In 1824 and '25 he represented 
Montpelier in the State Legislature, and was the author of reforms in the 
judicial system of the State, which have been since maintained. In 1826 
he was finally induced to accept the judgeship, and in 1829 succeeded to 
the chief justiceship. That he amply vindicated the propriety of con- 
ferring this high trust upon him, after what has been said, is a foregone 
conclusion ; indeed we are told that, although Judge Story was sitting on 
the Supreme Court bench, Chancellor Kent once declared Judge Prentiss 
to be the first jurist in New England. The deep and general respect in 
which he was held is still farther attested by his election in 1830 to the 
United States Senate at a time when the opponents of his party were in 
power. Judge Thompson, in his History of Montpelier, says of him, that 
"asa senator Judge Prentiss won an enviable and enduring reputation in 
a body embracing almost all the intellectual giants in that highest period 
of American statesmanship." His profound legal knowledge, embrac- 
ing all branches, including constitutional and international law, Daniel 
Webster, it is said, often consulting with him on the latter, his cultured 
and well-trained mind, the admirable manner and choice language in 
which he expressed his views, and his uniform courtesy in debate, all 
particularly fitted him for the high position to which he had now attained, 
and a great field for the acquirement of popular distinction was now 
offered, but he was not ambitious in that direction. He was singularly 
modest and totally unselfish. His ambition was simply to serve his State 
and country to the best of his ability; and as to popularity, his views are 
best expressed by himself in one of his speeches. Says he: "I would 
not be understood as undervaluing popularity because I disclaim it as a 
rule of conduct. I am quite too humble and unpretending an individual 
to count greatly upon it, or to seek or desire any which does not arise 
from the pursuit of right ends by right means. Whatever popularity that 
may bring will be as grateful to me as to any one." He did not attempt 
to put himself forward by speaking frequently, but he was as firm as a 
rock in following out his convictions, and when he found it necessary to 
express them he uniformly commanded the deepest attention; he, how- 
ever, was by no means an inactive member, serving as he did at various 
periods on several important standing committees, such as the Judiciary, 
the Committee on Public Lands, and that on Patents. I quote the 
following : 

"As a member of the Committee on Public Lands he advocated the 
bill for the distribution of the proceeds arising from the sale of the public 
domain among the several States, holding that the provisions of the Con- 
stitution confirmed all antecedent rights springing out of the compacts of 
cession, and he argued that the public territory was a binding trust held 
by the (iovernment of the United States for the benefit of the particular 
States according to their respective proportions in the general charge and 
expenditure." We are further told, that his speeches on this subject were 
marked with great clearness and force of argument, and discovered a 

1 8S9. ] Judge Samuel Prentiss of Vermont. \a*j 

power of stating and elucidating, difficult propositions not surpassed by 
any one in the Senate. 

"As a member of the Committee on the Judiciary, to which the subject 
was referred, he reported a bill directing a new edition of the laws of the 
United States to be compiled and printed, and accompanied the bill with 
a written report explaining at length its provisions, objects and advan- 
tages. The bill was passed by the Senate, but no action was taken upon 
it in the House. The utility of such a compilation of the laws has since 
become so apparent that at a later date attention was called to it by the 

" In the sessions of 1834 to '36 he was one of the select committee, 
of which Mr. Webster was chairman, to whom was referred the bill 
for the satisfaction of American citizens for spoliations committed on 
their commerce prior to September 30, 1800. The bill was reported 
on favorably by the committee, and after long debate was passed by the 
Senate. Mr. Prentiss advocated the bill in a speech presenting in a plain 
and condensed view the whole merits of the matter and demonstrating 
very fully and clearly the equity and justice of the claims, and the obliga- 
tion of the Government to pay them. He argued that the claims of the 
United States for indemnity from France for spoliations on our commerce 
were just, were so admitted by France, and were surrendered to that 
government as an equivalent for the correspondent release of the United 
States from certain important national obligations, and that therefore the 
United States, having appropriated an indemnity due on account of 
spoliations committed on private property as an offset to claims on the 
part of France growing out of national obligations imposed upon the 
United States by treaties, was bound, according to the fundamental laws 
of the land, as well as by the principles of national justice, to make com- 
pensation to the injured individuals. Such was the substance of the 
argument, and on such a basis he advised the measure as necessary to 
preserve inviolate the national honor and rectitude." 

"The nice sense of justice and honor which characterized Mr. Prentiss 
was exhibited on another subject somewhat similar in its nature. Seeing 
how much of the time of Congress was occupied in legislating upon 
private claims, the great delay and expense to which the claimants were 
subjected, and the injustice often done them and in many instances the 
Government by such legislation, Mr. Prentiss in 1S37, in order to cor- 
rect the evil, obtained leave to bring in a bill to establish a Board of 
Commissioners to hear and examine claims against the United Stales. 
This bill he introduced on every subsequent session so long as he 
remained in that body. It was passed by the Senate at three different 

ions, but at neither was any final action taken upon it by the Mouse 
of Representatives. The object, however, was accomplished at a later 
date by the establishment of the Court of Claims." 

" Mr. Prentiss opposed the Bankrupt Act of 1840 in a speech said by 
Mr. Calhoun to have been the clearest and most unanswerable argument 
to which he had listened for many years on any debatable question. In 
this he was opposed by ever) member of his own party but one and a 
short experience of the law verified the soundness of his arguments. In 
his view it seemed to legalize the breaking of contracts and to destroy 
individual and public credit. It soon had to be repealed." 

The above briel summary ol the more important senatorial services of 

Ij.g Judge Samuel Prentiss of Vermont. [Oct., 

Mr. Prentiss is taken almost verbatim from "Sketches of Eminent Ameri- 
cans, " -Livingston's Law Register, 1852. 

There is yet another very important measure with which Mr. Prentiss 
is to be wholly credited, viz., the bill for the abolition of duelling in the 
District of Columbia, which he introduced and carried, making even the 
leaving of the District for the purpose of fighting a duel subject to an 
infamous penalty. 

It may be well to recall here the circumstances which led more or less 
immediately to this measure. In 1838, owing to some remarks made by 
the Hon. Jonathan Cilley, one of the New Hampshire members of Con- 
gress, derogatory to Gen. Watson Webb, editor of the New York Courier 
and Enquirer, the latter challenged the Congressman, who declined to fight 
on the ground that Webb was not a gentleman, whereupon Mr. Webb's 
second, Hon. William J. Graves, a Kentucky member of the House, 
in accordance with the customs of duelling, took up the quarrel and 
challenged Mr. Cilley. The latter, being entitled to the choice of wea- 
pons, selected rifles, in the use of which he was an expert ; Graves, on the 
other hand, had very little experience with that weapon. The duel was 
fought at Bladensburg, Maryland, on the 24th of February, 1838, the 
combatants being placed at a distance of eighty yards from each other. 
The first two shots were ineffective, and it might be supposed, that as 
there was no personal quarrel between the two gentlemen, the affair 
would then and there have come to an amicable termination. Honor 
was satisfied. The fight however continued, and at the third shot Cilley 
fell dead. He was but thirty-six years of age ; Graves, his opponent, 
only thirty-three. He resigned from Congress, indeed retired from public 
life, and is said to. have become a prey to melancholy and remorse, dying 
between ten and eleven years later, viz., September 27, 1848, aged 
forty-three. It needed perhaps a tragedy of such prominence from the 
position of the parties concerned, to rouse the public mind of Washington 
to a sense of the enormity of such legalized murders, and on this occasion 
it was stirred to its very depths. Still the affair might have passed over 
after a while as a nine days' wonder, as had occurred in similar instances. 
It so happened, however, that the apartments of Mr. Prentiss being im- 
mediately opposite those of Mr. Cilley, he witnessed the bringing home 
of the body of the dead Congressman. He was profoundly impressed by 
the event, and not long after brought in his measure. No time could 
have been more favorable, and his whole heart was in it. "No one," 
says Dr. Lord, "who heard Mr. Prentiss on these occasions, but had their 
respect raised to admiration for his strength of principle, perfection of 
argument, and calm but finished and subduing eloquence." In each of 
the memoirs I have seen, the conclusion of his speech on the merits of the 
bill is given, and may be here introduced as a specimen of his impressive 
and effective style, as well as of the moral loftiness of his principles. He 
says: " Sir, public men and the people everywhere must cease to under- 
value the worth of moral excellence and virtue, and learn to consider that 
the want of these cannot be compensated by genius however brilliant, 
by learning however extensive, nor by any advantages, however fascinat- 
ing and valuable in themselves, which either the bounty of nature, the 
power of industry, or the most accomplished education can bestow. In 
short, if we wish to maintain the free institutions of the country, if we 
wish to preserve purity in the government, if we wish to continue and

perpetuate civil and political liberty, if we wish to uphold the character 
and honor of the country, and give it a name surpassing every ether name 
among the nations of the earth, we must remember and constantly act 
upon the great truth taught by Infallible Wisdom, that it is righteousness 
which exalteth a nation, while sin is a reproach unto any people. We 
must remember that it is an axiom founded in the soundest philosophy, 
and verified by all authentic history, that as vice and immorality in private 
life invariably destroy individual character and usefulness, whatever intel- 
lectual endowments may accompany them, so if favored and tolerated in 
public life and among public men, they will inevitably infect and corrupt 
the general mass of the community, induce criminal insubordination to 
the laws, undermine the conservative and sustaining piinciples of the 
social compact, and ultimately lead to national dishonor, degradation, and 
ruin." Such utterances as these, and those previously mentioned on 
popularity, might well be written in letters of gold on the walls of the 
Senate Chamber, offering as they do an example to be followed, and convey- 
ing a warning to be heeded. 

Such had been the career of Mr. Prentiss in the Senate when, after 
serving two six-year terms, it ended in 1842 in his nomination to the 
office of United States Judge for the District of Vermont. This was with- 
out reference immediately and unanimously confirmed by the Senate, 
and from what has gone before we may safely conclude that few abler, 
certainly no purer or more conscientious man has ever graced the bench. 
How he filled this position, which he occupied to the time of his death, 
was ably summed up by the Hon. Solomon Foot, as chosen representa- 
tive of the Vermont bar to address the Court after his decease. "Judge 
Prentiss, " he remarked, "possessed the essential and indispensable ele- 
ments of all high and elevated characters, and more especially those 
indispensable to a high judicial functionary, which are a clear and logical 
mind, great moral courage, purity of motive, uprightness of purpose, 
irreproachable integrity, and unimpeachable honor. All these belonged 
to his character. His cairn, considerate, and reflective mind, united with 
a delicate sensibility — being by constitutional temperament as well as by 
habits of thought and study eminently conservative in all his views — a 
rare knowledge of human character, and of the motives which influence 
the conduct of men — and having long been devoted to the study of the 
law as a profound and comprehensive moral science — these fitted him in 
an eminent degree for the highest judicial station, and made him what 
he was indeed, an honor and ornament to the bench, and gave him 
rank among the ablest jurists of the land." 

He was a man of fine appearance, above the middle height, quiet and 
unostentatious in manner, his personal character stainless, his habits 
unexceptionable. He was courteous, affable, and dignified in demeanor, 
as well as hospitable and generous within his means. He was eminently 
a Christian in the highest sense of the term. In this respect the follow- 
ing peculiar trait is recorded of him. On going down to breakfast in the 
morning he would not notice any one in the room, whether family, 
friends, or strangers, but would take down the Bible, read a chapter, then 
offer a prayer, after which he immediately relaxed into the genial father 
or courteous host. 

His domestic relations were peculiarly happy. In Mrs. Prent'ss he 
had a helpmate of whom it is affirmed that within her own department 

1 cq The Ten Broeck Family. [Oct., 

and opportunities she was fully his equal. Previous to her marriage in 
Northfield her many Christian graces, her personal attractions and loveli- 
ness of character had secured for her a host of friends, and in her new 
position she quickly found her way into the hearts of all around her. 
Her characteristics are so beautifully summed up by Judge Thompson in 
his History of Monlpelier, that I give them in his words : "It would be 
difficult to say too much in praise of this rare woman. She was one of 
earth's angels. In her domestic and social virtues, in the industry that 
caJsed her to work willingly with her hands, in the law of kindness that 
prompted her benevolence, and the wisdom that so judiciously and 
impartially dispensed it, together with all die other of those clustered 
excellences, that went to constitute the character of the model woman of 
the wise man — in all these Mrs. Prentiss had scarce a peer among us, 
hardly a superior anywhere. She had done everything for her family — 
during her husband's absence in engrossing occupations, their early 
training necessarily falling to her lot — and she lived to see her husband 
become known as he sat among the elders of the land, her nine surviving 
sons, all of established characters, and presenting an aggregate of capacity 
and good repute unequaled perhaps by that of any other family in the 
State, all, all praising her in their lives. These were her works, but not 
all her works. The heart works of the good neighbour, of the good and 
lowly Christian, and the hand works that looked to the benefit and 
elevation of society at large, were by her all done, and all the belter for 
being performed so unobtrusively, so cheerfully and so unselfishly." 

So far with judge Thompson. No higher testimony to her worth 
could perhaps be given than that of the Judge himself, who a few weeks 
after her death said that in all his married life oi more than fifty years he 
had never known or heard of an instance in which she had spoken an 
unkind word or had lost the perfect control of her temper. 

This excellent woman died June 15, 1 H 5 5 . and just eighteen months 
later the Judge followed her, viz., on January 15, 1857. For fifty-one 
vears tins noble couple had gone hand in hand through life together, 
Christians by profession, by faith, and in their daily walk, and were thus 
separated for a short time only to be reunited, and to obtain the reward 
of their labors in a blissful immortality. A massive granite monument 
marks the spot where their remains lie side by side in Creen Mount 
Cemekry near Montpelier.

1889.] John Hathorn. 1 69 


By Rev. A. A. Haines. 

(An Address delivered before the Minisink Valley Historical Society.) 

John Hathorn, a Revolutionary soldier and patriot, was born 9th of 
January, 1749, at Wilmington, Delaware. Hathorn was the common 
ancient spelling of the name. Some of kindred descent dropped the 
first syllable and made it simply Thorn ; and Nathaniel Hawthorne, the 
author, changed the name of the old sea-captain of the family by insert- 
ing the letter w and adding the letter e. 

John Hathorn came in early life, previous to 1770, to Warwick, New 
York, and was said to have been of Quaker family. As a military man, 
he did not hold the principle of non-resistance, yet in his later life he 
invited Quaker preachers to. hold meetings in his house. Hathorn was 
a land-surveyor, and his occupation first brought him to Warwick, where 
he married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Welling, and settled upon the 
farm adjoining that of his father-in-law. His wife was born at Jamaica, 
Long Island. 

Hathorn was public-spirited and an ardent patriot ; and, after holding 
subordinate positions, was appointed colonel of a regiment of Orange 
County militia, about May, 1775. His stone house is still standing in 
excellent preservation, bearing on its southern gable the date of 1773. 
This house was licensed as an inn, and here General Washington was 
entertained when in the vicinity. It is said that when a portion of the 
army was here encamped, General and Mrs. Washington spent some 
days in this house, while Indians were prowling around seeking an op- 
portunity to shoot him. General Hathorn was very erect, and preserved 
a military bearing, becoming stout in advanced life. He wore breeches 
and silver knee-buckles, and, when in full dress, top boots. During the 
Revolution, with his regiment he performed excellent service in resisting 
the raids of Tories and freebooters, and keeping them in awe. He was 
frequently called upon for details of men for military service and guard 
duty. In his report on the battle of Minisink, made to General George 
Clinton, July 25, 1779, he says : "On the evening of the 2 1 st of this 
instant I received an order from His Excellency Geneial Washington, 
together with a requisition of the commissary of prisoners, to furnish one 
hundred men to guard the British prisoners on their way to Easton. I 
ordered three companies of my regiment, including the exempt company, 
to parade for this purpose." The making of this detail accounts for the 
small number of men he took to the Minisink conflict. When Burgoyne 
surrendered there were questions raised by General Howe as to the 
terms of their parole, and Congress ordered that, until these were settled, 
the prisoners should be retained and sent to the interior of the country. 

The battle of Minisink has been ably described by others, and we will 
only make some reference to the part taken by Colonel Hathorn. Dr. 
Benjamin Tusten, Lt.-Colonel of the Goshen regiment under General 
Allison, with such men of the Orange County militia as he could hastily 
collect, and a small force of Sussex County troops under Major Samuel 
Meeker, and Captain Joseph Harker, of Ha'rdyston, made a forced march 

j jq John Hathorn. [Oct., 

for the scene of hostilities. Hathorn, with his accustomed ardor, with 
such additional men of his Warwick regiment as he could gather, fol- 
lowed rapidly, and, when he overtook the advanced force, as senior officer 
assumed command. 

The prudence of Tusten and Hathorn was overcome by the rashness 
of Meeker ; yet I do not believe, as has been asserted, that in the time 
of extremity Meeker failed in courage or in readiness to obey orders. 
Major Meeker was wounded as well as Captain Harker, and nearly a 
fourth of the men who fell were of their command. The names of Cap- 
tains Stephen Mead, David Tallmage, Nathan Wade, Hardyston men, 
are inscribed upon the monument at Goshen. Corporal Eliakim Ross, 
of the Sussex County troops, died from wounds then received, and Lieu- 
tenant James Patton was discharged by reason of wounds received proba- 
bly at the same time. Colonel Hathorn, in his report, said he had 120 
men, while Dr. Wilson, in his address in 1822, says 80. This may be 
accounted for on the supposition that the 80 were the Orange County 
militia and the rest were from Sussex County. Hathorn was uncertain 
as to the number of the enemy, but said : "Some say 90, others, 120 ; 
others, 160." That 300 Indians and 200 Tories took part in the conflict 
must be an exaggeration. 

When the attack was to be made, Hathorn divided his men into three 
divisions, but before his dispositions were complete, Brandt surprised them 
by a sudden assault. By this the rear divisions were cut off from the 
main body and forced to break in confusion and fall back. With what 
forces remained to him, Hathorn was pressed upon a rocky knoll, where, 
on the summit, they had little more than an acre of space. The men had 
a short supply of ammunition from the beginning, and Hathorn gave 
orders not to fire unless they were sure of their aim. They continued to 
hold the hill until near sunset, when their powder was spent, and they 
clubbed their muskets for a hand-to-hand contest. Hathorn said that 
•'when their hollow square was broken in the final struggle, every man 
made choice of his own way." Although the battle of Minisink ended 
disastrously, Hathorn did not suffer in the estimation of his fellow citizens. 
He was entrusted with various important duties during the remainder of 
the war, and at its close was in command of the troops stationed at Fish- 
kill. He represented Orange County in the Assembly, with some inter- 
vals, for eight years from 1777 to 1785, and was speaker of that body in 
17S4. In 1788 he was one of the five members sent from New York to 
the Continental Congress, and attended at its last session. From 17S7 to 
1804 he was for eight years of the time a State senator from the Middle 
District, was made a Brigadier General of Militia, and elected to Congress 
for two vears in 1788, and re-elected in 1790. He was a confidential 
correspondent of Washington, was on intimate terms with many distin- 
guished men of his day, and carefully preserved his papers. After his 
death his papers were placed in barrels in the attic, and, later, were con- 
signed to the flames as worthless. Doubtless much valuable material was 
thus destroyed. On the 22 nd July, 1822, General Hathorn, then venera- 
ble with the weight of seventy-three years, laid the corner-stone of the 
monument erected in Goshen to those who fell at Minisink, and delivered 
an appropriate address. 

General Hathorn had potash works, a blacksmith's shop, a wood shop, 
a store, and I think a tannery, with numerous small dwellings for his

workmen, all in the vicinity of his home. One of his descendants said 
that he had a small town of his own. For some years he was in business 
with the Sharps in the iron manufacture, and was clerk or superintend- 
ent of the Sharpboro forge in upper Hamburg. This was subsequent to 
the Revolutionary war, but the date, or length of time he was thus engaged, 
I am unable to give. He died 19th of February, 1825, and was buried 
beside his wife in the spot he had selected, in a field in the rear of the 
house where he dwelt. It has been proposed to remove his remains to 
the new cemetery, and to erect there a suitable monument to his memory 
by the citizens of Warwick ; or, what may be better, to place the monu- 
ment on the spot where his dust has slept for over sixty years. 

The children of John and Elizabeth Hathorn were six sons and five

John Maston, or Marston, was an Englishman, who probably came 
to this country as a soldier in the Dutch service. His name appears in the 
records as Mast, Maste, Masten, Maston, and Marston. His son John, 
who settled at Flushing, Long Island, appears to have adopted the name 
of Marston, while Cornelius, who settled at Kingston, N. Y. , took the 
name of Masten. The earliest record I find of him is Feb. 8, 1644, when 
"Jan Maste, Soldaet, " is sponsor in the Dutch Ch., N. Y. , for Jan, son of 
Jan Pieterzen. (G. & B. Record, Vol. V. p. 34.) 

1644, March 28. "Jan Mast" is sponsor for Jan, child of Hannah 
Beckens. (Record, Vol. V. p. 84.) He settled at Flushing, and is named 
in Gov. Kieft's patent (Dutch), 1645, Oct. 19. 

Oct. 27, 1650. "Jan Maston, J. M., Uyt Engelandt, en Dievertje 
Jans, J. D. Uyt Noordt Holl', " were married in the Dutch church, N. Y. 
(Record, Vol. VI. p. 39.) 

The will of John Maston, recorded in N. Y., Liber 1, p. 116, of 
Wills, is as follows : 

"The last will and testament of John Maston, made Feb. 14, 1670, at 
fflushing. I will my two sons, John and Cornelius, to my well beloved 
ffriend John Hinchman, to live with him, and to be wholly at his disposing 
till they come to age according to law. I also will John Hinchman to 
have ye oversight of my whole estate and guardian to my two sons. I 
will to my two sons my whole estate after my debts are paid, except one 
gold ring and one silver thimble. I will to my daughter Elizabeth ye 
ring, and to my daughter Katherine ye thimble. This is my full will 
and my sonns' desire, as witness our hands this 14 th day of ffebruary, i6I',\ 
at fflushing. " John Marston, Sfnr.

Franssen Bloodgood of Amsterdam, and living in Flatbush (Dutch 
Ch. records of Flatbush, Onderdonk copy), probably daughter of 
Frans Bloetgoed and Lysbeth Jans. (Riker's Harlem, p. 562.) 
In his will, dated Sep. 23, 171 2, recorded in N. Y., liber 9, p. 
23iiofWills, April 14, 1721, he names himself "John Marston, 
of Flushing"; he names his sons Francis (eldest son), Cornelius, 
John : daughters, Isabel Haff, and Elizabeth Gardner, and brother- 
in-law Wm. Bloodgood. 

He had children bp. in N. Y. : Franz, Oct. 30, 1678; Jan, June

3. Cornklius. I have not been able to find his baptism or the date 
of his marriage. He married, probably about 1676, Elizabeth 
Aartse (Van Wagenen), of Kingston, N. Y., daughter of Aart 
Jacobs (Van Wagenen) and Annetje Gerrits. He settled at 
Kingston, and has numerous descendants in Ulster and Dutchess

Bergh, and is mentioned as "born and living at Kingston." (Pear- 
son's Albany Settlers, p. 118.) Pearson is evidently incorrect with 
regard to Gysbert Van den Berth's 2 nd marriage in 1720, as Gys- 
bert and Diewertje had a child bp. at Kingston Aug. 6, 1 721; he 
appears to have mixed up two separate Gysberts in his Albany

1889.] James Riker. j~r 

By James K. Gibson, Jr. 

James Riker, historian, who died at Waverley, Tioga Co. , N. Y. . on 
the third of July, i88y, was born in the city of New York May 11, 1822. 
He was a descendant of Abraham de Kycke, who came to New Amster- 
dam about 1642, anil who, in addition to lands at the Wallabout and 
elsewhere, acquired Riker's Island by patent in 1664. Abraham married 
Grietie Harmensen, and their eighth child, Abraham, married Grietie 
van Buytenhuysen, who also had a son Abraham, born in 1691, and who 
married Geesie van Alst. Jacobus, one of the ten children of Abraham 
the third, was born 17:56 at Newtown. L. I., and married Anna Catrina 
Rapelye by whom he had Daniel. Daniel was a justice of the peace at 
Newtown for eighteen years, but removed to New York City in 1827. He 
married lor his first wife, Deborah, daughter of William Leverich, and 
had a son James, the father ol the historian. James Riker, Senior, was a 
grocer, assistant alderman in 1832 (his relation Richard Riker, being then 
recorder of the city), retired from business and removed to Harlem in 

He married Elizabeth, daughter of John Van Arsdale and Mary Craw- 
ford, of Orange Co., N. Y., by whom he had six children. 

James Riker, Junior, received a classical education at the Cornelius 
Institute, under Professor John J. Owen, and designed to enter the 
ministry, but relinquished his purpose on account of the bronchial trouble 
that finally caused his death. His tastes early led him to the study of 
local history which he pursued with enthusiastic devotion to the end of 
his life, although almost continuously engaged in other avocations. He 
was Vice-Principal of the Twelfth Ward School in 1850-58; engaged in 
the office of the Home Missionary Society until 1863, and for three vears 
in the Internal Revenue Service in New York City. 

During all these years Mr. Riker was preparing himse f for, and cany- 
ing on, his real work. With the assistance of a Hollander whom he had 
befriended, he learned the Dutch language, and familiarized himself with 
the perplexing subject of family names of early Dutch and Erench settlers. 
Years were spent among the town, city and State Archives of New York, 
Albany, Kingston, and elsewhere, church records of baptisms and mar- 
riages studied, and family names puisued through their patronymic and 
eccentric alterations, obscured by time and transcribed in the curious 
orthography of the early Dutch dominies. To cull from these original 
sourcts — and Mr. Riker compiled scantily, if ever, from any other — the 
"multitudinous facts and innumerable details " (as he feelingly expresses 
it) contained in his histories, is a work requiring so much time, patience, 
labor and endurance, that perhaps we ought not to wonder that so many 
of the "Local Historians" of to-day seeking remuneration rather than 
lame, avoid, by superficial transcripts of unverified data, this dreary task. 

Mr. Riker's wonderful accuracy in these details deserves the highest 
praise. His conscientious carefulness can be partly appreciated by the 
fact that nearly a year and a half were Consumed in passing the " History of 
Harlem " through the press. 

It is not the piupose of this sketch to criticise Mr. Riker's works, or 

j 7 £> fames Riker. [Oct., 

to determine his rank as a historian ; it seems faint praise, however, to 
claim that his books are authorities on the early history of New Amsterdam 
and its first settlers, and as compendiums of family genealogies, are invalu- 
able works of reference. 

Mr. Riker 's first publication was "A Brief History of the Riker 
Family," a pamphlet of nineteen condensed pages, in 1851, followed in 
1852 by the ''Annals of Newtown. " "The History of Harlem " (a title 
which conveys a limited idea of its full scope) was published in 1881, 
after twenty-five years of labor. Although this history in addition to its 
historical and genealogical stores " reveals the origin of many of the land 
titles between Yorkville and Kingsbridge, " and (to quote the words of a 
prominent lawyer) "to us members of the legal profession is invaluable,'' 
it was with some difficulty that the edition of six hundred copies was dis- 
posed of. A project to issue a much enlarged and revised edition of two 
hundred copies, at ten dollars a copy, was relinquished from want of 
encouragement His desire also for the editorship of a magazine in 
whose pages he could give to the public the gathered treasures of a life- 
time could not be carried out. 

Besides Mr. Riker's contributions to the New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Record and other periodicals, he published in 1881 a 
pamphlet of fifty-six pages entitled, "Evacuation Day, with Recollections 
of Capt. John Van Arsdale." 

Chiefly on account of ill health he removed to Waverley, Tioga Co., 
N. Y., in 1869. Here, with his own collection of books and manu- 
scripts as the reference department, he established a town library of which 
he was librarian. This was abandoned after three years, and his time then 
devoted to the compilation of genealogies for families. 

He was a member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society ; the New York Historical Society ; the Massachusetts Historical 
Society, since 1852, when his name was proposed by the then President, 
Judge James Savage ; and of many others. 

Mr. Riker was one of those rare men in cosmopolitan New York who 
pursued the study of local history and genealogy with genuine love and 
disinterested zeal. With the modesty of a real student his own personality 
was alwavs hidden. His writings were not remunerative, but his chief 
d es i re — as he expressed it — was to leave a work behind him which would

I go Ao/es and Queries. [Oct. , 


Gen. Wilson writes to us that, in the course of some recent genealogical investi- 
gations at The Hague, he met with the original Indian deed conveying Manhattan 
Island to the Dutch West India Company. The purchase of the island in 1626, when 
Minuil was Director General, from the Indians, who received for that splendid tract 
of twenty-two thousand acres of land the trifling sum of sixty guilders, or about 
twenty-four dollars, is mentioned both by O'Callaghan (Vol. I, p. 104) and Brodhead 
(p. 164). They say nothing, however, of the preservation of the deed. Mr. George 
H. Moore tells us that he has long known of its existence, and that he saw it many 
years ago. The peculiar interest of our worthy President's communication, however, 
lies in the fact that he has entered into negotiations for the purchase of the deed. 
Should they be successful, he will bring it with him to New York. 

The Ferris Genealogical Chart, giving descents for eight generations in both 
male and female lines, is now announced as ready, and can be obtained upon appli- 
cation to Mrs. Morris P. Ferris, Garden City, New York. 

The Long Island Historical Society proposes to print, by subscription, a 
volume containing about 150 unpublished letters of Washington from its manuscript 
collections, together with a portrait of Washington, not heretofore engraved, from a 
painting by Charles Peale, 1787, belonging to the Rev. Mason Gallagher of Brook- 

A Genealogy of the Weld family is in preparation by Mr. J. Edward Weld, 160 
Broadway, New York. 

The following records relating to Nicasius he Sille have been copied by Mrs. 
Margaret Herbert Mather, from a Bible in possession of George W. Wood, of Balti- 
more, Md. 

On the cover of the Bible, on the inside of the cover, is engraved the coat of arms 
of the De Silles. We had hoped to reproduce it, but it is unfortunately given only 
in outline, and we have not yet been able to find the blazon in any book accessible 
to us. An account of Nicasius de Sille and his family will be found in the Record, 
Vol. VIII. p. 128.

The Sherki rne News (Sherburne, N. Y.. Aug. 31, 1889) contains an admira- 
ble paper by Mr M. D. Raymond, editor of the Tarrytottm Argus, and a recent 
visitor to our library. The article is on the Lynde family, the Warners, and the 
early history of Sherburne, and is full of genealogical interest, while written in a 
particularly graceful and agreeable manner. In the various families of which he 
treats, nearly every one can find something of special interest. It is a proof of the 
growing interest in genealogical matters that the new departure of this paper and 
the Barnstable Patriot ', in publishing such articles, meets with warm appreciation 
from their readers. The Sherburne News reports that they had a hundred applica- 
tions after the edition was exhausted.

Services in commemoration of their settlement two hundred and fifty years ago 
have been held in several Massachusetts and Connecticut towns within the past few- 
weeks. Guilford, Conn., and Madison, the adjoining town on the east, originally 
a part of Guilford, had their celebration on the 8th, gth and 10th of September. The 
first day being Sunday, there were historical discourses in the churches. At the 
meetings of Monday and Tuesday historical addresses were delivered and papers 
read. George A. Wilcox, of Detroit, Mich.; Profs. Charles Frederick Johnson and 
Samuel Hart, of Trinity College, Hartford, Conn. ; Henry P. Robinson, of Guilford ; 
Hon. Lewis H. Steiner and Bernard C. Steiner, of Baltimore, Md.; Kate Foote, of 
Guilford ; Sidney W. Leete, of Guilford ; Gen. Joseph R. Hawley, U. S. Senator ; 
Hon. Henry Barnard, of Hartford, Conn.; Col. Thomas Wentworth Higginson, of 
Cambridge, Mass. ; Prof. William R. Dudley, of Cornell University, N. V. ; Joel 
Benton, of Amenia, N. V. ; and the Rev. John E. Todd, D.D., of New Haven, Conn. 
— all of them in some way associated with Guilford history — contributed to a very 
successful observance of these quarter-millennial days. Although clouds obscured the 
sky and threatened rain on Tuesday, it did not prevent the procession, in which were 
exhibited many features recalling the early history of the town. A number disguised 
as Indians ; the original purchase of the land ; the first marriage in the old stone 
house with its supper of "pork and pease ;" the old singing school with the attend- 
ants in puritan dress; and time-worn carriages with occupants attired in quaint old 
style, were instructive and in some instances amusing features. Many old houses 
built in colonial times bore the date of their construction. In a large tent many sat 
down to an ample dinner. More than a thousand relics, temporarily loaned, attracted 
the curious attention of citizens and visitors. The first Vice-President of the N. V. 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, a native of Guilford, had the honor of presid- 
ing on Tuesday, the high day of the commemoration. The energetic committee of 
arrangements, of which the Rev. W. G. Andrews was chairman, have every reason to 
be gratified with the result of their labors. 


Mrs. Julia Gardiner Tyler died July 10, 1SS9, at a quarter past five o'clock, 
at the Exchange Hotel, Richmond, Virginia. She had but recently arrived there 
from a visit to her son, Lyon Gardiner Tyler, President of the College of William and 
Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia. Mrs. Tyler's maiden name was Gardiner, daughter of 
Hon ble David Gardiner, and descended from the Gardiners of Gardiner's Island. 
She was educated in New Vork and Paris, and after her entrance into society was 
presented at several European Courts. On her return from Europe, she visited the 
National Capital, and upon this occasion first met President Tyler, then a widower. 
Her father was killed by the explosion of the great gun on board the frigate Prince- 
Urn, and was buried from the White House with the other unfortunate victims of this 
sad event. She was married to the President at the Church of the Ascension, New 
York, June 26, 1844, being at that time about nineteen years old. During the 
remainder of her husband's administration she was the gracious and popular mistress 
of the White House. In figure she was tall, and her appearance was most pleasing, 
and when married she was considered a very great beauty. Some years ago Mrs. 
Tyler, with her daughter and grand-daughter, was received into the Roman Catholic 

Her funeral took place at St. Peter's Cathedral, July 12th, at eleven o'clock. The 
sacred edifice was filled with representatives of every walk in life. The Governor, 
Fitzhugh Lee and Judge Joseph Christian headed the pall-bearers, among whom were 
included the Mayor of the city, Ellison, Judges FitzHugh. Wellford, and Witt. 
Father Chas. E. Donohoe, of Fredericksburg, celebrated High Mass, and Bishop- 
elect Van de Vyver performed absolution. The Bishop-elect, in his address, paid a 
beautiful tribute to the deceased lady as a wife and mother, and spoke of her devotion 
as a child of the Church. The procession to the grave in Hollywood was one of the 
largest ever witnessed in Richmond. 

io2 Book Notices. [Oct., 1889. 


Our Predecessors and their Descendants. By Robert Ludlow Fowler, 
pp. 78. New York. Printed for private circulation. 

These graceful sketches of the author's great grandparents' families, although all 
pretence to genealogical method is modestly disclaimed in the preface, contain, with 
pleasing fulness, most admirable accounts of the Fowler, Seining, Ludlow, Powell, 
Orso and Rumsey families, tracing them back to their first ancestors in this country. 
These genealogies are arranged clearly and concisely, and written in an entertaining 
and dignified manner. This tasteful book is a credit to the author, and of value to 
genealogists, although intended strictly for private circulation. 

The Livingstons of Callendar and Their Principal Cadets. A Family 
History. By Edwin Brockholst Livingston. Privately printed. Part III. 

This part, which completes the history of the European portions of the family, 
includes the Livingstons of Jerviswood, Ogleface, Craigengall, Bedlormie, West- 
quarter, Haining and Parkhall, with the descendants of the latter, the Livingstone 
Learmonths. It is, what it professes to be, a real history, and not a mere collection 
of names and dates. It is written well and carefully. Great pains have been taken 
to give clear and precise references to the authorities which have been consulted. 
The heraldic parts are exceedingly well dune. The latter part of the number gives a 
very interesting history of the Livingstons of France. 

History of Kingston, New York, 1660 to 1820. By Marius Schoonmaker. 

8vo. New York. 1888. 

To those interested in the early settlement of New York State, the Annals of 
New York, Albany and Kingston are of e<|ual importance and value. In the volume 
before us — dedicated to the Holland Society — Mr. Schoonmaker states in his preface 
that " his object has been to give a compact but complete " history of Kingston do-wn 
to 1820. It is written in an interesting style, with considerable valuable local detail, 
and genealogies of the first generation of a few of the earliest settlers. The book is 
tastefully edited and contains a number of interesting illustrations, among which is 
the old Senate House where the first Senate of the State of New York met and was 

Ancestry of Thirty-Three Rhode Islanders born in the Eighteenth 
Century. By John Osborne Ai stin. 4to, pp. 140. Albany, N. Y. Published 
by Joel Munsell's Sons. 1889. 

We '[note only a portion of the elaborate title-pa goodly quarto, partly on 

account of its great length and minuteness, in which respect it almost rivals some of 
the wonderful title-pages of the seventeenth century, and partly because we shall 
describe it in describing the book itself. The arrangement of the pedigrees follows 
the French and German fashion, and includes progenitors on both sides of the house 
as fully as they can be traced. In other words, it gives parent*, grandparents ami 
great-grandparents, two, four and eight, respectively. It includes, also, or is intended 
to include, the parents and grandparents of the last, sixteen of the former and thirty- 
two of the latter. This method of tracing descents is known to be extremely diffi- 
cult, and it is perhaps not surprising that the sixteen quarters should have been 
made out only in a single instance, that of Nicholas Brown (1769-1841). Even 
these are not strictly quarters, since they give names merely and not arms. Tins 
method of reckoning descents, however, lias never been a favorite one with English 
heralds. It is useful, however, though only to a limited extent, in pointing out the 
relations to one another of various families. The second part of the book contains 
the descendants of Roger Williams to the fifth generation in twenty-seven charts, 
I. <•.. the descendants of his sons and daughters. These appear to have been fol- 
lowed out with much care and elaboration ; they are indexed briefly. An account 
of Lewis Latham, falconer to King Charles I., follows. A chart of his descendants 
shows eleven grandchildren and eighty-two great grandchildren, all derived from the 
second and third marriages of his daughter Frances (1611-1077). This lady married 
successively Lord Weston, William Dungan, Jeremiah Clarke, and William Yaughan. 
The book ends with a catalogue of a hundred and eighty portraits, now in existence, 
of distinguished Rhode Islanders, and persons intimately connected with Rhode 
Island history.

Testimonial from the late Hon. Marshall P. Wilder, Ph.D., LL.D., of Boston. 

" No other work is so rich in materials which give an insight into the history of the 
people of New England, their manners, customs, and mode of living in bygone days." 

Fiom the late Col. Joseph L. Chester, LL.D., D.C.L., of London, England. 
"Tome the work, of which I possess a complete set, is invaluable. I consult it 
constantly, not only lor matters relating directly to Americans, but also in reference to 
English families of the seventeenth century, concerning whom these volumes contain a 
vast amount of information not to be found elsewhere. There are no books in my library 
that I would not sooner part with than my set of the Register." 

MR. JAMES GREENSTREET, having been employed for upwards of fifteen 
years in collecting genealogical information, recorded on the Plea Rolls and other 
Records in the Public Record Office, London, and from Parish Registers and Wills, is now 
in a position to render very material assistance to persons engaged in the compilation of 
pedigrees of their families, more particularly those American enquirers who arc desirous 
ing their English ancestors. Terms very moderate. All communications addressed 
prompt attention.
