Vol. XXXVI. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1905. No. 1. 


By Theodore L. DeVinne. 

Samuel Putnam Avery, the eldest son of Samuel P. and 
Hannah Parke Avery, was born in the city of New York on 
March 17, 1822. His father, of old New England stock, (a de- 
scendant of Dr. William Avery who settled in 1650, at Dedham, 
Mass.), died during the cholera season of 1832, leaving his oldest 
son, then a boy but ten years old, with a brother and three 
sisters, to begin the struggle for existence. At a very early age 
he found employment in the office of a bank-note engraver, 
where he had opportunities to cultivate his inclination for the 
art of design. While yet a boy he began to fill in his spare time 
with engraving on wood, at which he soon became proficient. 
Abandoning engraving on copper and steel — an art then most 
difficult to enter as a master to one who was young in years and of 
slender purse — he undertook to make wood cuts for publishers 
and printers. 

He entered this field too soon. Printing was then in a state 
of transition. The hand press was still used for the printing of 
wood cuts, but the pressmen who could properly print wood cuts 
were few in number. What was worse, the result of the financial 
panic of 1836, and of the great fire of 1835 were still felt, and 
New York printers had to be economical to the verge of penuri- 
ousness. There were not many who could or would pay a 
proper price for a good design or engraving. 

Orders for engraving did not come unsought. The positions 
of artist and printer were then reversed. The few illustrated 
books of merit then published like Harper's Pictorial Bible and 
Lossing and Barrett's Field Book were really planned by the 
artists, and were accepted by the publishers only after much 
importunity. The period between 1840 and 1850 was that of the 
comic almanac and the Dave Crockett picture book, the carica- 
tured valentine and the coarsest kind of wood cut, and the out- 
look for a better appreciation of good prints was not encourag- 

During these dreary years of hard work and mean pay, Mr. 
Avery was qualifying himself for better things. He studied 

2 Samuel Putnam Avery. [J an -> 

with zeal and thoroughness the rules and principles that govern 
all kinds of good art and good workmanship. From the study ot 
prints and painting he derived instruction of value. To know 
why some pictures and prints had been rising steadily in appre- 
ciation, while others after brief popularity had fallen into per- 
manent neglect, was not to be ascertained by accepting the pop- 
ular verdict Nor was it safe to trust too much to the undenn- 
able quality known as inherent good taste. He had to search for 
the many causes that helped to create meritorious work, to 
thoughtfully read the writings and patiently listen to the teach- 
ings of the critics of all ages and countries, had to be eager to 
hear and slow to decide, had to critically compare the productions 
of many masters before he could make for himself just standards 
of proportion. . , 

Many years passed before Mr. Avery met with proper recog- 
nition as a competent judge of pictures and prints. Mr. William 
T. Walters, a great collector was the first to discern his fitness, 
and it was by his advice that Mr. Avery was induced to abandon 
engraving on wood and give exclusive attention to the purchase 
and sale of works of art. But when recognition did come, it was 
hearty and thorough. In 1867 he was appointed commissioner 
of the American Art Department at the Universal Exposition in 
Paris, where he made many friends among foreign artists. ISo 
man in America has done more to make Europeans acquainted 
with the works of American painters; and it is largely to his dis- 
cernment that the picture galleries of recent collectors have 
been filled with works of permanent value. During the later 
years of his life he was accepted by all as a wise judge on all 
forms of artistic productions. 

It is not, however, his expertness as a judge of pictures that 
need be considered in this paper. There is another phase of his 
character which will be more gratefully remembered. The 
spoken opinion given to-day is not always long remembered. 
The good deeds that outlast a man's lifetime and of which the 
visible evidences can be found for years to come in many 
libraries are the things that will be most kindly recalled. These 
visible evidences are books and prints, for the books are, as the 
old Roman poet has well said, " more enduring than bronze 
They live for centuries, and every year adds to their value, and 
in every generation new readers arise to thank the kind fore- 
thought that put them in easy reach. 

One of the most valuable of these collections is that ot the 
Avery Architectural Library at Columbia College, which com- 
prises about 15,000 volumes, given, with a proper endowment, by 
Mr. and Mrs. Avery in memory of their deceased son, the archi- 
tect, Henry Ogden Avery. There is no collection like it in the 
New World. It is doubtful whether there is any as large, as 
accessible, and as generally useful in any library of Europe. Of 
equal merit is a great collection of prints and books on fine arts 
now in the Lenox Library, soon destined to become a part of 
the New York Public Library. Whoever examines the hand- 
book of this collection must be pleased not only at the diligence, 

<9°5-J Samuel Putnam Avery. ? 

but at the exceeding good taste of the collector, for here are 
prints of the best work of all the great engravers. Among them 
are old books relating to King Alfred of England and literary 
curiosities that one hardly dare mention for the temptation to 
expatiate on their merits would protract this paper beyond a 
reasonable length. 

Visitors to the Metropolitan Museum of Art will find in the 
upper galleries a wonderful collection of Chinese and Japanese 
porcelains that were collected many years ago by Mr. Avery. 
They exhibit not only the delicacy and beauly of Oriental art, 
but the patience and sagacity of the collector who picked them 
up, bit by bit, piece by piece, in many cities and from incon- 
gruous surroundings. 

Nor has the Typothetae (New York master printers) been 
neglected. Its scant collection of thirty years ago was materially 
enriched by the bequest of the late William C. Martin, and 
additions have been made by many of its members, but no one 
has been a more frequent or more helpful contributor than 
Mr. Avery. 

It is many years since Mr. Avery retired from active business, 
but his diligence as a member of literary and civic associations 
never abated. To enumerate these societies is to show the many- 
sidedness of the man. He was one of the founders and always a 
trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for many years sec- 
retary of the art committee of the Union League Club, trustee of 
the New York Library Association, (Astor, Lenox and Tilden 
foundations), ex-president of the Grolier Club, vice-president of 
the Sculpture Society, honorary member of the Architecutural 
League and of the Typothetae of the City of New York, and cor- 
responding member of many foreign artistic societies. He was 
a member of the Century, Union League, Players, City, Tuxedo 
and other Clubs; a member of the Civil Service Reform Assoc- 
iation, Sons of the Revolution, and of the Society of Colonial 
Wars; life member of the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society, and of the American Museum of Natural 
History; member of the American Geological, Historical and 
Zoological Societies, of the National Academy of Design and the 
Chamber of Commerce. 

The new charter of the City of New York specially appointed 
him a member of the Art Commission which has to decide upon 
the merit of all statues and mural paintings offered to the city. 
This is the least of many evidences that his opinion in all matters 
pertaining to fine arts is considered as authoritative. His ser- 
vices in this direction, as well as his active interest in the cause 
of education, fairly earned for him the degree of A. M., given 
some years ago by Columbia College. 

These are evidences of ability and activity, and yet they do 
not fully represent the man. One may grow old, may acquire 
distinction and property, and yet be comparatively friendless; 
but Mr. Avery is not only honored but beloved in his declining 
years. On his seventy-fifth birthday, March, 1897, a gold medal 
of artistic design, modeled by Professor Scharff of Vienna, was 

4 Samuel Putnam Avery. [Jan., 

presented to him by seventy-five leading citizens of New York. 
This was one way of recognizing his public services, as well as 
their appreciation of him as a man. Victor G. Brenner of New 
York has also made a portrait medallion of Mr. Avery. One of 
the last works of Thomas Johnson, the engraver, was an etching 
of the portrait of " his beloved friend, S. P. Avery." 

One of Mr. Avery's hobbies was the collection of fine books 
in fine bindings. Friendships that he had formed abroad in 
in artistic and literary circles had made him acquainted with 
foragers of keener discrimination than are usually found among 
dealers in old books, and they have helped to add to his collec- 
tion. To go through his library is an education in bindings. 
One will find there specimens of the best work of the oldest 
Italian and the most modern French, German and English 
binders. From the stamped' missal of vellum, with silver clasps, 
and the carved ivory covers 'of madieval craftsmen, down to the 
carved leather and the brilliant mosaic inlays of Pagnant, one 
may find excellent examples of the handiwork of able decorators 
of books for more than seven centuries. 

Mr. Avery's death was unexpected. He had " grown old 
gracefully," and retained his activity and usefulness to the last, 
even to marching in procession on some recent day of festival 
with his fellow soldiers of the 23d Regiment. For years it had 
been his custom to spend the summer with an invalid wife at 
Lake Mohonk. He left that place with a niece to transact some 
business in this city, and to go on to Atlantic City where he 
hoped that sea air would be of benefit, but a sudden attack of 
illness compelled him to stop at his home, 4 East Thirty-eighth 
Street, where he steadily declined until he died Aug. 11, 1904. 

In acknowledgment of a written tribute of love paid to his 
memory by his associates of the Grolier Club, Mrs. Avery testi- 
fies with earnestness to the unvarying sweetness and serenity of 
her husband's disposition during a union which lasted more than 
sixty years. He never spoke ill of anyone even when he had 
just cause. He did try to be a peace maker as well as a bene- 

Mr. Avery's survivors are his widow, Mary Ann Ogden, a son, 
Samuel P. Avery, Jr., who, until recently, succeeded his father 
in the control of a picture gallery on Fifth Avenue, and a daugh- 
ter, the wife of the Rev. P. Welcher of Brooklyn. Benjamin 
Parke Avery, his only brother, was Minister to China under 
President Grant, and died at Pekin in 1785. A sister married 
the Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage and died in 1861. 

At his funeral, a young man made this remark, " I have lost 
my best friend. Every month, and sometimes oftener, I was 
sure to receive from Mr. Avery a note, inclosing kind words, a 
newspaper clipping, or dainty little gifts, all tending to show 
that I was loved and remembered." And an eminent artist, now 
living abroad said to the writer who told him of Mr. Avery's 
death, "The world to me will never seem the same again." 

1905.] The De Riemer Family. 

THE DE RIEMER FAMILY, A. D. 1640 (?)— 1903. 
Contributed by Rev. W. E. De Riemer. 

The progenitors of the De Riemer family in New Amsterdam 
were Isaac De Riemer and Lysbet Grevenraet (sometimes 
spelled Greveraad, and Greefraadt, and Graeveradt), sister of 
Isaac Grevenraet, and daughter of Metje G. 

The name De Riemer (variously spelled de Rymer, D'Ryomer, 
and De Reamer, De Remer, and Derumer) indicates a French 
origin and Huguenot stock, but this couple were from Holland. 
Genealogists concede, what a thorough investigation of Dutch 
records will doubtless prove, that the family ancestors were 
refugees from France who had, some generations previously, on 
account of anti- Romish convictions, fled from France and re- 
mained in Holland until they had become adherents of the 
Reformed religion and users of the Dutch language. G. W. 
Schuyler (in Colonial New York, Vol. II, p. 426), says that 
Nicholas Gouverneur and his wife Machtelt De Riemer were of 
French extraction, but emigrated to New Amsterdam through

name in the Church record are found these words, 

" Gestorven Meuis," implying that he died in France 

on the river Meuse. "Was a naval surgeon." 

Isaac and Lysbet were doubtless married in Holland. Four 

children were brought with them to New Amsterdam, unless we 

except the fourth. The children's names were: Margaretta, 

Pieter, Machtelt and Huybert. Pieter's birth is known to have 

occurred in 1643. In his testimony before a Riot Commission 

in 1790, he declared himself to be about 47 years of age (Hist. 

Col., N. Y., Vol. Ill, pp. 740-1), and it is supposed that the family 

arrived in this country about the time of his birth. 

Valentine tells us that Isaac was a prosperous young mer- 
chant of the city, but his residence in the city of Manhattan 
seems to have been brief, and no reference is found to his death. 
Lysbet (Grevenraet) his widow married a second time, 
Elbert Elbertsen, a glazier by trade. Elbertsen died suddenly, 
Nov. 9, 1655. She was married the third time on Feb. 14, 1659 
(Mar. Record, Reformed Dutch Church, New York), to Rev. 
Samuel Drisius, assistant pastor of the New York Dutch Church. 
Rev. Mr. Drisius died in 1672, but his wife survived him until 
Dec. 25, 1687. She brought to him a considerable property, con- 
sisting of real estate, and the mercantile effects of her late 
husband. In her will, of 'which her son Pieter De Riemer is 
made administrator, she mentions Mrs. Margaret Steenwyck, 
Machtelt Gouverneur, widow of Nicholas G., deceased, Mr. Pieter 
De R., and her deceased son Huybert, and his children Isaac and 
Elizabeth, gotten by Catherine. (In the N. Y. Hist. Society, 
Abstract of Wills, Vol. I, p. 150, her death is mentioned as 
occurring Feb. 13, 1686.

child when he made his will in 1669, he bequeathed 
his entire library to him.)

Note. — It seems to have been the custom of those times when 
a young child died to let the next born inherit the name of the 
deceased child, hence there were two Jacobs and two Cornelises 
in this family. As none of the above children are mentioned in 
the marriage list of the Dutch Church, and as none of them ap- 
pear in the wills made by either Cornelis* or Margharetta, f it 
appears that none of them reached mature years. Hence this 
branch of the De Riemer family terminates with this genera- 
tion. — Editor. 

Margharetta De Riemer was apparently, as she is always 
mentioned first, the oldest of the four children of Isaac De 
Riemer and Lysbet Grevenraet. The place and date of her birth 
are not yet ascertained. Neither have we any account of her 
maiden life. The meagre history which is at hand concerns 
itself only with her married life, which was indeed most fortun- 
ate. She was successively the wife of two men who left marked 
impressions on the manners and events of their day — men whose 
names will never be dissociated with the formative period of the 
great Metropolis. 

Her first marriage was celebrated June 5, 1658 (N. Y. Gen. & 
Biog. Record, Vol. VII, p. 62), to De Heer Cornelis Steenwyck 
who came from Harlem in 1652. J This man proved to be one of 
the most wealthy, respected and eminent men of his day. He 
held high official positions, both during the Dutch and English 
regimes. As her husband was suscessively a Schepen, Burgo- 
master, Mayor and acting Lieut. -Governor, it is but natural that 
Margharetta his wife should have occupied an enviable social 

Steenwyck died in 1684, and on Oct. 20, 1686, his widow mar- 
ried the widower Dominie Henricus Selyns, who, from 1682 till 
his death in 1701, was the efficient pastor of the New York Dutch

his first wife; eight children. 
Pieter De Riemer was the oldest son of Isaac De Riemer and 
Lysbet Grevenraet. He was born in 1643, probably in Amster- 
dam. This date is established by his testimony before the com- 
mittee of investigation respecting the New York riots. In his 
deposition, made June 8, 1690, he said that he was then aged 
about 47 years. He united with the Dutch Church of the city, 
July 9, 1663. He was a glazier by trade, and it is evident that he 
learned his trade from his stepfather, Elbert Elbertson. His 
marriage to Susanna de Foreest, daughter of Isaac de Foreest * 
and Sarah du Trieux, was recorded on Jan. 3, 1665. 

Pieter's will was dated Jan. 29, 1697, and proven Oct. 5, 1702. 
In it he mentions only his son Isaac and his wife Susanna (de 
Foreest) whom he appoints executor, but who died previous to 
the proving of the will.

Isaac De Riemer, II, son of Pieter De Riemer and Susanna 
de Foreest, was born in this city and was baptized, as appears 
from the records of the Dutch Church, on Jan. 10, 1666. He ap- 
pears to have been the only son and child of his parents, but, 
judging from his ability to make himself useful in public affairs, 
he was equal to a whole family of ordinary citizens. He was 
both merchant and politician. Valentine declares him to have 
been (Hist, of City of N. Y., p. 98) along with his cousins Isaac 
De., Jr., and Abraham Gouverneur, among the "Principal mer- 
chants of the city at the close of the 17th century." He early 
appeared in public and military affairs. He was scarce twenty- 
three years old when commissioned by Lieut. -Gov. Leisler, Dec. 
16, 1689, a Lieutenant-of-foot in Walter's company of N. Y. 
militia. He was afterwards made Captain of a company of 
militia of which Abraham De Peyster was the Colonel. His 
political life began in 1696, when he was elected an Assistant 
Alderman for the West Ward. In 1699 he filled the place of 
Alderman of West Ward and Sheriff, and was elected Treasurer 
of the city. The climax of his promotion came in the year 1700, 
when he was appointed Mayor of New York, and elected a mem- 
ber of the Colonial Assembly from 1700 to 1702. From 1702 
to 1704 he was Alderman of the West Ward, also Collector of 
the South Ward in 1706. He was elected Constable in 1708, 
and Alderman of the Out Ward in 17 14 to '17.

• This is an evident mistake as Morris' oldest child, Rebecca, was hardly ten years of age. 

t Samuel Babbington is recorded as a "Freeman "of New York City in 1746 (Valentine's 
New York, p. 391). and his name occurs on a poll-list of the city in 1761. He is supposed to 
have been a son of Lieut. Samuel Babbington and his wife Elsie, who received by an act of the 
N. Y. Legislature, Dec. 23. 1717, 50 or. of "plate" for services in the expedition against the 
French in Canada, and who. on Nov. 16. 1717, was sworn in as Sheriff of the City and County of 
Albany. The son Samuel was probably born in Albany about 1720.

* Mr. Waters has marked on his bare reference to this will, which I have taken the abstract 
of at Somerset House: " N. Y. (says Mr. Jones)." This doubtless refers to David Jones. Esq., 
whose acute criticism and special knowledge of Welsh matters came so handy in settling the 
hotly contested parentage of Roger Williams. Doubtless Mr. Jones has good grounds for con- 
necting this Watkins' will with early Welsh Families in New York.— L. W.

1905.] Edward Fuller and His Descendants. \\ 


By Homer W. Brainard, Hartford, Conn. 

Additions and Corrections. 

Having had an opportunity to examine the town and county 
records at Barnstable, Mass., I am able to make some additions 
.to my former statements and to correct some mistakes. The 
numbers refer to the heads of families in the genealogy. 

2. Capt. Matthew Fuller. The inventory of his estate was 
^1667,04,06, not j£66j. His daughter Mary was born about 1625, 
not 1635 as printed. 

3. Samuel Fuller. His daughter Elizabeth m. Joseph Taylor. 
It is probable that her sister Sarah m. John Crowell of Yarmouth. 
The will of John Crowell, dated March 20, 17 13-4, names wife 
Sarah, eldest dau. Jane O'Kellia, sons Thomas, John and 
Ephraim, daus. Sarah, Jemima, Thankful and Hannah. Samuel 
Fuller's sixth child was b. May 18, 165 1. * 

4. Lieut. Samuel Fuller. His will, dated Aug. 2, 1675, was 
proved June 7, 1676. Mary Fuller, widow, was a member of the 
Barnstable church in 1683. Their son Matthew 4 probably did 
not die at home. His will, dated Aug. 7, 1696, at Boston, was 
proved May 22, 1697, at Barnstable. Inventory, dated May 6, 
1697. In the will he says that he is " upon the country's service

5. Dr. John Fuller. He left an estate of ,£461.05.06; the in- 
ventory is dated July 16, 1692. His dau. Bethia Lathrop, d. Oct. 
26, 1714, aged 28, leaving two children, John, b. Aug. 25, 1709, 
and Hannah, b. July 16, .1712. 

6. Samuel Fuller. The date of the inventory is Dec, 28, 1691, 
and the agreement was dated Dec. 30, 1691. 

7. John Fuller. Date of his birth lies between 1654 and 1656. 
His dau. Mehitabel, m. Benjamin Kneeland of Hebron, Conn., 
according to the author of the Kneeland Genealogy. 

8. Capt. Thomas Fuller. His gravestone states that he d. at 
Barnstable, Nov. 21, 1718, in the 58th year of his age. His eldest 
dau. Hannah, m. Jabez Burseley of Barnstable. Capt. Fuller's 
will, dated Dec. 14, 17 16, was proved Jan. 3, 17 18-9. Estate, 
^807.06.06. His dau. Mary was b. Aug. 6, 1685, and his son Ben- 
jamin on Aug. 6, 1690. The son John is not named in the will. 

9. Jabez Fuller. He d. at Middleborough in 1712. His wife 
was Mary, dau. of Joseph and Elizabeth (Gorham) Hallett, not 
Mercy Wood. His eldest son Samuel, d. without issue before 
June 24, 1715. His dau. Mary did not marry her cousin Benja- 
min Fuller as a second wife, but did marry James Bearse, Jr., and 
his dau. Mercy m. April 5, 17 16, Jabez, son of Samuel and Re- 
becca Wood of Middleborough. The son Ebenezer was b. Feb 
20, 1707-8. This is proved by a settlement found in Vol. IV, p 

34 Edward Fuller and His Descendants. [Jan., 

31 of Barnstable Probate Records, with which the Plymouth 
records entirely agree. The settlement runs: "Jabez Fuller, 
formerly of Barnstable, late of Middleborough, d. intestate, leav- 
ing land in the late division of common lands in Barnstable, 
valued at £20. The said Jabez Fuller had five children, namely, 
Jonathan, Ebenezer, Mary and Lois, the eldest son having de- 
ceased after the death of his father, without issue. At the de- 
sire of widow Mary Fuller, relict of the said deceased and of 
Jonathan the eldest son, the said lot of land is now settled on 
Jabez Wood and Mercy his wife, on Jonathan Fuller, Ebenezer 
Fuller, and Mary Bearse and Lois Fuller, Feb. 17, 1720-1." 
Mary Fuller m. March 17, 1719-20, James Bearse, Jr., of Barn- 
stable, and d. about 1726, leaving a son Jabez Bearse, b. Feb. 20, 
1720-1. Jabez Fuller had no dau. Hannah. It is said that his 
widow Mary m. about 1720, Joseph Vaughn, and d. March 21, 
'734t aged 81 years. 

11. Sergeant Samuel Fuller. His widow Elizabeth m. (2) 
a Standish of Preston, Conn., probably Israel* (Josiah,* Myles'), 
and was again a widow in 1728. His dau. Waitstill Fuller, m. 
Feb. 21, 1733-4, at Preston, Conn., Thomas Heath. 

12. Capt. John Fuller. His gravestone says that he d. July 
24, 1732, in the 43d year of his age. His wife's mother's name 
was Mary, not Mercy, Otis. He left an estate of ^2678.08.00. 
His son John was b. Aug. 3, 1712, not 1714. His dau. Mary, m. 
Aug. 11, 1737 (not 1733), Seth Lathrop, who m. (2) Aug. 8, 1763, 
Mary Fuller of Sandwich. Bethia Fuller m. Joseph Burseley, Jr. 
Thankful Fuller m. Nathan Bassett, not Russell. 

13. Barnabas Fuller. His will was proved April 26, 1738. 
His son Josiah was b. Feb., 1 700-1, not 1709. 

14. Joseph Fuller. His will, proved Jan. 15, 1750-1, names 
wife Thankful, dau. Remember, dau. Mercy, and grandchildren 
Seth, Thankful and Rebecca Fuller. The will of widow Thank- 
ful Fuller, dated Aug. 13, 1757, probated March 7, 1758, names 
same grandchildren, daughters Mercy Fuller and Remember 
Crocker, and late husband, Joseph Fuller. These two wills 
prove that Joseph and Thankful (Blossom) Fuller had a fourth 
child, Mercy, who m. Feb. 20, 1729-30, Lieut. Benjamin Fuller 
(25) as his second wife. Remember Fuller and Jabez Crocker 
m. March 27, 1755, not 1745. 

16. Benjamin Fuller. The Barnstable Probate Records contain 
no reference to him or his estate. His dau. Temperance Fuller 
m. March 30, 1727, Joseph Blossom of Barnstable. Her children 
were: Lydia, b. March 19, 1729; James, b. Feb. 9, 1731; Sarah, 
b. Oct. 14, 1734; Mary, b. Sept. 14, 1736. On page 22 of the 
Record for January, 1903, I wrongly assigned them to Temper- 
ance Fuller, dau. of Joseph Fuller (24). John Fuller, son of 
Benjamin (16), is probably the one whose gravestone at West 
Barnstable, declares that "John Fuller d. Oct. 17, 1732, in the 
27th year of his age." He m. March 7, 1728, Maria Nye, prob- 
ably of Sandwich. James Fuller, son of Benjamin (16), m. Sept. 
2i , !733> Temperance, dau. of Benjamin Phinney of Barnstable, 
and they had baptized at Barnstable (West Church) the follow-

ing children: John, Silas, Martha, bap. April 28, 1744; Joseph, 
bap. April 6, 1746; Benjamin, bap. Oct. 29, 1748; Bathsheba, bap. 
Oct. 27, 1753. The statement about the only son Thomas is 
entirely erroneous. Thomas Fuller of Hardwick, here referred 
to, was probably, Thomas, son of John (37), b. May 9, 1754, at 
Barnstable. (See under 74E.) 

Of the children of James ' and Temperance (Phinney) Fuller, 
I offer the following, which is partly conjectural. John* m. 
Bathsheba Percival (?), and went to Vassalboro' Me., where he 
died. Children: Abigail, Ezra, John, Hannah, Thomas, Lucy. 
James' Fuller m. June 1, 1762, Rachel Fish and (2) Nov. 26, 1775, 
Ruth Bodfish. He was a mariner, and d. in Barnstable about 
1815. Children: Mary,' who m. Thomas Percival of Barnstable, 
mariner; Temperance, who m. Edward Fuller of Reedfield, Me.; 
James', who m. July 28, 1810, Rosanna Jones of Barnstable, and 
had John Addison,' and Stephen Bailey Fuller, and d. about 1819; 
Rachel,' who m. a Randell of Vassalboro', Me. 

Benjamin ' Fuller, son of James and Temperance, m. Betsey 
, and probably settled in Sandwich, Mass. A Capt. Ben- 
jamin Fuller who d. June 5, 1854, at West Barnstable, aged 77 
yrs., 10 mos., 8 days, may have been his son, and another Benja- 
min Fuller who d. Oct. 29, 1849, at Barnstable, aged 40 yrs., 
4 mos., 15 days, may have been a grandson, or nephew. 

That James' Fuller d. 1765 in Barre, Mass., is more than 
doubtful, as also the statement that his widow m. James Laugh- 
ton (Lawton). 

17. Thomas Fuller. An Elizabeth Fuller, probably wife of 
this Thomas, was dismissed from the West Barnstable church to 
East Haddam in May, 1726. His eighth child Daniel is either an 
error of the East Haddam church records, for which we should 
read Daniel, son of Matthias Fuller, or else he d. young. Thomas' 
son Jonathan, d. in 1758, unm., and his estate was distributed to 
his brothers and sisters, among whom Daniel is not found. 

18. Samuel Fuller. There is no authority that Moses Row- 
ley's wife was a Throup. Samuel (18) owned half a right of land 
at Sharon, Conn., as early as 1741, but did not settle there. 

20. Eeward Fuller. His widow Elizabeth was living at Col- 
chester in 1 741. His son David perhaps, m. Feb. 15, 1748, Sarah 
Rust. If so, the second marriage to Lucy Fuller Williams is 
doubtful. That marriage may be the first of David, son of 
Young Fuller. Edward, Jr., probably d. in the army. Sept. 7, 
1756, administration on estate of Edward Fuller, deceased, was 
granted to Samuel Church of East Haddam, and a small estate, 
.£44.1. 10 was afterwards distributed. 

23. Benjamin Fuller. Mrs. Content (Fuller) Skinner deceased 
before May 27, 1754. Her dau. Deborah Fuller m. (2) James 
Warren. For these Warrens compare an article in the N. E. 
Hist. Gen. Register for July, 1903. Josiah Fuller settled in 
Oblong, N. Y. Jane Fuller m. Simeon Rowley of Kent, not of 
Sharon, as printed. 

24. Joseph Fuller. He d. Sept. 24, 1745, in his 63d year, 
according to gravestone at West Barnstable. His wife Joanna d.

April 24, 17 1 7; m. Nov. 12, 1736, Abraham Blish of Barnstable. 
The marriage to Joseph Blossom, Jr., is erroneous. (See No. 16.) 
Lemuel Fuller, son of No. 24, had besides children given, also 
Thomas, b. June 5, 1778; d. Sept. 30, 1779. His brother Matthias 
was b. Sept. 6, 1723, not 1722. He had a son Matthias. Timothy

Barnstable. Bathsheba Fuller, d. June, 1749, in 23d year. 
25. Benjamin Fuller. He d. at Barnstable, Jan. 2, 1748. He 
m. (2) not Mary Fuller, dau. of Jabez as printed, but Mercy Ful- 
ler, dau. of Joseph and< Thankful (Blossom) Fuller (14). His will, 
dated Dec. 17, proved Feb. 8, 1748-9, names wife Mercy. (See 
No. 14). His dau. Elizabeth Fuller m. Nov. 13, 1740, James 

27. Jonathan Fuller. His son Jabez removed and settled at 
Medfield, Mass. Children: Sarah, 7 b. July 29, 1746; Lucy and 
Peter, twins, b. May 13, 1749; Zenas, b. July 8, 1752; Elizabeth, b. 
Sept. 13, 1754; John, b. June 18, 1756; Amasa, b. March 10, 1759; 
Andrew, b. May 18, 1761; m. Hannah Richards; was a minister 
at Sherborn, Vt. His son Timothy Fuller settled in Attleboro', 
Mass., about 1766. 

29. Matthias Fuller m. (3) Patience , who was Dec. 6, 

1770, his widow and relict, and living at Colchester at that date. 
32. Thomas Fuller. He d. June 29, 1797, aged 71. His wife, 
who was dau. of Samuel and Hannah (Davis) Dimmock, was b. 
at Barnstable, Nov. 26, 1728, and d. in Hartland Conn., Feb. 28, 
1819, aged 90. His son Samuel Fuller m. Mary Dimmock. His 
son Ichabod Fuller m. March 4, 1784, Apphia Sparrow. His dau. 
Hannah m. Nov. 20, 1792, Benjamin Hayes, not Timothy Fuller, 
Jan., 1781, as printed. His dau. Anne Fuller m. April 17, 1783, 
Thomas Benjamin. All were living at East Hartland at that

39. Samuel Fuller. He never lived in Rochester, Mass., which 
is an error for Colchester, Conn. His son Barnabas Fuller lived 
in Eastbury parish, Glastonbury, Conn. Children: Ruth, b. 
Sept. 1, 1761; Christiana, b. April 27, 1765; Elijah, b. April 30,

John Green of Falmouth. His son Zaccheus" probably had a 
son Zaccheus' who d. at Marston's Mills, Barnstable, Oct. 28,

son of Ebenezer, was in the Lexington alarm company from 
Barnstable, the only Fuller from 'the town. He m. March 24, 
1781, Elizabeth Jenkins, and had: Priscilla, Ely or Eli, Ebenezer, 
and Elizabeth. It may be that this is the wife and family of 
William, son of Eli Fuller, b. Sept. 28, 1753. If so, the marriage 
to Rebecca Forgess (foot-note to No. 40) is wrong. 

49. Jabez Fuller. In line nine of the sketch, read "estate of 
Jonathan Fuller" for "estate of Jabez." Jonathan was brother 
of this Jabez, and d. without issue. 

50. John * Fuller. The proprietors' records at Sharon, Conn., 
show that Samuel Fuller (18) had a son John to whom he con- 
veyed land in Sharon in 1741 and in 1755, and that at the latter 
date John was of Wethersfield, Conn. His residence there was 
probably temporary, as the Wethersfield records do not name 
him. It is possible that he was ancestor of the line of Fullers 
that lived in that part of Farmington, Conn., which was after- 
ward Bristol and Burlington, but I cannot offer positive proof. 

58. Joseph Fuller. The children of his son Joshua' were b. in 
Kent, not in Sharon. His wife Sybil Champion was born in Sal- 
isbury, not in Sharon. In the foot note following No. 58 (page

maried August the :j, 1746, In the 20 year of his Age." "I sot 
scail from Cap Cod May ye 2, 1749: Arived Into Connecticut 
river May ye n, 1749." The church records at West Barnstable 
show that Abijah Fuller returned to Barnstable with his young 
wife, and that they lived there until May 2, 1749, when they again 
returned to Middle Haddam, Conn., this time to remain. It 
appears from this that Abijah Fuller did not have a daughter 
Hannah. The Hannah Fuller who m. James Young and went to

: Attention has been given to Horton ancestry, heretofore, in 
the Horton Genealogy, published in 1876 by Geo. F. Horton, M. D., 
as well as in Bolton's History of Westchester Co., N. Y., and in 
Baird's History of Rye, Westchester Co., N. Y. Recent research 
has confirmed some of the statements made in these works, has 
disproved others, while some remain uncorroborated. 

The conclusions hereinafter expressed are mainly based 
upon what has been found in the extant records of Rye; in deeds 
recorded up to 1827 in the registry for Westchester County; 
and in wills, &c. Without the aid of family Bibles and papers, it 
is often extremely difficult, or impossible, to determine the par-

entage of individuals, when births, marriages and deaths are not 
of public record; when there is no record of deeds from fathers 
to children, or from one member to another of a family (unques- 
tionably many old deeds were never recorded); when parents 
died intestate; or when other evidence that would determine 
relationships is not discovered. This is particularly the case 
when two or more persons having the same christian name 
appear in the same generation, or what may have been adjacent 

Probably nearly all Hortons in Westchester County, and 
vicinity, up to the year 1800, were descendants of Barnabas, 1 who 
settled in Southold, Long Island, and there remained until death, 
having been a fairly prominent man in the community. 

1. Barnabas' Horton was born in Mousley, Leicestershire, 
England, and died at Southold, Long Island, July 13, 1680, aged 
80 years, according to the inscription on his tombstone. It has 
been said that he emigrated in the Swallow between 1633 and 
1638, and first sat down at Hampton, Mass. (now N. H.), whence 
he removed to New Haven, where he and others organized a 
Congregational Church, Oct. 21, 1640; but proofs of these asser- 
tions have not yet been sought in original records by the present 
writer. The Swallow is not mentioned as an emigrant ship in 
Drake's or Hotten's lists, and Barnabas Horton is not indexed in 
either of them. Savage states that Barnabas was of Hampton in 
1640, and of Southold in 1662. Whitaker's History of Southold 
says that he may have dwelt in Hampton, but that there is no 
evidence of his having lived in New Haven. 

The year when Barnabas settled in Southold is unknown, the 
earliest records of that town having long since disappeared. The 
extant records open with the year 165 1, under which some of his 
property is mentioned as a bound; and a schedule of his lands 
appears under the date Jan. 1, 1653. At this period, Southold 
was within the jurisdiction of New Haven Colony, the records of 
which show that Barnabas was a deputy from that town for sev- 
eral years between 1654 and 1661, inclusive; was constable in 
1656 and 1659; and was chosen to receive customs in 1658 and 
1659. In the records of Connecticut Colony (with which New 
Haven later united), we find that he was accepted as a freeman 
on Oct. 9, 1662; and was chosen a commissioner for Southold in 
1663 and 1664. Dec. 7, 1665, Capt. John Youngs, Barnabas Hor- 
ton and Thomas Mapes bought land on the easterly end of Long 
Island from the Indians, for and in behalf of the inhabitants of 
Southold. The will of Barnabas, dated May 10, 1680, and proved 
in the following March, mentioned his wife Mary and nine 
children. Barnabas' Horton had issue: 
2 i. Joseph, Vb. by 1625, probably, 
ii. Benjamin, b. about 1627.

vii. Joshua, b. about 1643. 
viii. Jonathan, b. about 1647; d. Feb. 23, 1707. 

ix. Mercy, m. Youngs. 

These sons and daughters are respectively designated as eldest, 
second, &c, in their father's will, and were probably born in the 
order in which they appear above, but the precise birth-date of 
none of them has been found. The Southold records show that 
Benjamin' deposed April 3, 1686, aged about 59 years; and 
that Joshua' deposed Nov. 1, 1710, aged 67 years; while an 
inscription on the father's tombstone shows that Jonathan * died 
Feb. 23, 1707, aged 60 years. If Benjamin * were born about 1627, 
as his deposition indicates, probably his elder brother, Joseph,' 
was born by 1625. Whether Barnabas' widow, Mary, was the 
mother of his children has not been proved, but it may be 
doubted that Joseph was her son, as he refers to her as " Mary 
Horton, the wife of my father Horton, deceased," in a receipt 
given to her for his share of his father's estate, — whereas he 
would more likely have called her his mother had such been the 
case. The time of her death has not been determined. 

2. Joseph' Horton, eldest son of Barnabas,' according to his 
father's will, was probably born by 1625. He owned eleven 
parcels of land in Southold in 1653, as shown by the records of 
that town. In 1656, he sold his three-acre lot on Calves Neck to 
Thomas Mapes, Sr. He, being then " of Southold," was admitted 
a freeman of Connecticut Colony, Oct. 9, 1662, on the same date 
as was his father. July 10, 1665, as a "late inhabitant of 
Southold," he sold certain lands there to Capt. John Youngs. 
On the same date, as a resident of Rye in the jurisdiction of 
Connecticut, and with the consent of his wife, Jane, he sold to 
his " father, Barnabas Horton of Southold," his dwelling, home- 
lot, and lands in Southold and vicinity. He had settled in Rye, 
therefore, prior to this date. The records of Connecticut Colony 
show that he was confirmed Lieutenant of the train-band of Rye, 
May 9, 1667; that he was a deputy to the Connecticut Court in 
1672, and one of the Committee on boundaries, 1672-1674; was 
appointed in 1676 to administer oaths to town officers; in 1678, to 
perform marriages; in 1679, to grant warrants in Rye; and that 
he was chosen commissioner for Rye, 1681-1683. The records of 
Rye refer to him as Captain, and he therein appears many times 
as Justice of the Peace. He and his wife were mentioned in the 
will of John ' Budd, Oct. 15, 1669, to which he was a witness. 

Deeds prove that Joseph' married Jane, daughter of John 1 
Budd, but the date of the ceremony has not been discovered; 
nor has the date of his death, but the latter was before June 12, 
1696. Mr. Baird thought that Joseph' was alive in 1699, and 
received permission to keep a house of public entertainment. 
The Rye records show that a Joseph was granted such a permit, 
March 24, 1697-8, but this was undoubtedly Joseph,' — for on June 
12, 1696, "John Horton, son of Joseph Horton, deceased, of Rye," 
sold land; and on June 13, 1696, John 3 Budd confirmed to John' 
Horton (Joseph ') lands which Budd's father had exchanged 

1905.] Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. 4 1 

(June 8, 1673) with "Joseph Horton of Rye, deceased, and Jane 
Horton, his wife." The death of Jane (Budd) Horton has not 
been found. Unfortunately, neither Joseph ' nor his wife left 
a will. Joseph" Horton certainly had issue: 

3 i. John, 3 b. by 1647, probably. 

4 ii. Joseph, b. by 1649, probably. 

5 iii. Samuel, b. 1652-56, probably. 

6 iv. David, b. 1654-60, probably. 

Probably he also had issue: 

7 v. Jonathan. 

8 vi. Benjamin. 

vii. Hannah, m. Thomas Robinson. 
The birth-date of none of these children has been discovered, 
and they are arranged (except Jonathan) in the order in which 
they appear of record. The Horton Genealogy adds to the 
first four above named, Abigail, wife of Roger Park, and Jere- 
miah; and places Hannah and Benjamin as children of John.' 
Mr. Baird adds to the first four an unnamed daughter, wife of 
Roger Park, and gives Hannah and Benjamin as children of 
John.' No Jeremiah has been seen of record. If but one Hor- 
ton woman married a Roger Park, it is certain that she was not 
a daughter of Joseph" (who was dead in 1696), because on Jan. 
24, 1669-1700, Joseph Horton of Rye, gave his "son-in-law, 
Roger Park," land in White Plains. Undoubtedly the grantor 
was Joseph. 3 Jan. 20, 1699-1700, Joseph Horton of Rye, gave his 
sister, Hannah Robinson, half an acre of land adjoining that 
"which David Horton bought of our brother, John Horton;" and 
on the same date, Benjamin Horton of Rye, gave his sister, 
Hannah Robinson, five acres in Rye, and mentioned her hus- 
band, Thomas Robinson, as his brother-in-law. No good evi- 
dence has been seen that John 3 had a son, Joseph, and none 
whatever has been seen that he had a son Benjamin. Jonathan 
has been placed as a son of Joseph,' because of Mr. Bolton's 
quoted statement, that in 1694 two men " were chosen to lay out 
the land at the White Plains granted to Jonathan Horton by the 
town of Rye." The date of this item makes Jonathan a con- 
temporary of Samuel 3 and David, 3 and seems quite certainly to 
place him in the third generation, though no writer about the 
family has given Joseph' a son Jonathan. 

3. John 3 Horton, son of Joseph,' was probably born about 
1647. He seems to have been the eldest son, not only because 
his name is mentioned before that of his brother Joseph, in their 
grandfather Budd's will, as well as in an assignment of land to, 
and a division of it between these brothers, but because lands 
were confirmed to John,' which his father had exchanged with 
Budd, — the stated reason for such confirmation having been the 
" Riteings being not Expressed according to law," in the original 
exchange. John ' has first been seen of record in the will of his 
grandfather, John ' Budd, Oct. 15, 1669, who had apparently given 
him a lot, and confirmed it to him in that instrument. In 1672, 
his land was mentioned as a bound, and he signed as a witness. 

42 Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. [Jan., 

Feb. 27, 1676-7, he and his brother Joseph, both of Rye, received 
an assignment of John Conklin's share in certain lands there. 
Feb. 22, 1691-2, these brothers and a third party agreed to divide 
the tract; and a division of the share of John* and Joseph,' be- 
tween themselves, took place Oct. 17, 1696, John being of Rye 
and Joseph of New York. June 13, 1696, land was confirmed to 
him, which his father and mother had received in exchange with 
Budd. Sept. 20, 1697, he was chosen one of a committee to build 
a meeting house in Rye, and was elected a Townsman in the fol- 
lowing March. In 1699, he was a deputy to the Connecticut 
Court. Feb. 4, 1699-1700, he was mentioned as Lieutenant and 
as one of several to lay out White Plains and Lame Will's Pur- 
chases. In 1701, he and others bought land of the Indians. Jan. 
12, 1702-3, he is of record as Captain, when he was chosen a 
vestryman, to which latter office he succeeded in the following 
year. In 1705, he and others were chosen to run the line between 
Rye and Greenwich; to oversee the building of the meeting 
house; and bought land on Byram River of the Indians. The 
date of his death has not been discovered. Probably he was 
alive May 20, 1707, when Joseph Pufdy, John Horton and Daniel 
Purdy, all of Rye, joined in selling land bounded west by that of 
John Horton; but he was dead before Aug. 4, 1707, when Benja- 
min Horton was chosen in his place on the committee for build- 
ing the meeting house. He died intestate, leaving a widow, 
Rachel, who seems to have been the mother of his children and 
was administratrix of his estate. The date of her death has not 
been found. Very probably she was the daughter of John Hoit 
of Rye, whose will, dated Aug. 29, and proved Nov. 7, 1684, men- 
tioned a daughter, Rachel Horton. John * Horton certainly had 

9 i. John. 4 
10 ii. Daniel. 
ir iii. Jonathan. 

12 iv. Caleb. 

13 v. James. 

Very probably he had other children, and among them pos- 
sibly a daughter, who married Isaac Covert. Mr. Baird gives the 
issue of John' as John, Joseph, Jonathan, Benjamin, Hannah, 
wife of Thomas Robinson, and perhaps others. The Horton 
Genealogy adopts Mr. Baird's opinion as to the children named by 
him, but omits the others. The proof that John ' had sons, John,' 
Daniel, 4 Jonathan, 4 Caleb, 4 and James,* is found in a deed dated 
May 2, 1711, by which John 4 Horton of Rye, yeoman, "son and 
heir apparent of Capt. John Horton, deceased," quit-claimed to 
his brother, Daniel, their father's rights in the White Plains pur- 
chase, and one and a half acres of salt meadow near Rattlesnake 
Brook; to his brothers, Jonathan and Caleb, land in the Pond- 
field; to his youngest brother, James, all their father's land 
bought of Conklin, and all Salt Meadow except that given to 
Daniel; and agreed to ratify to each of these brothers, as he 
came of age, what had been quit-claimed. In this same deed, 
John 4 also quit-claimed to his "mother, Rachel Horton," the 

1905.] Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. 43 

homestead in her possession^ during her widowhood. That 
John 3 had a daughter who married Isaac Covert, is indicated by 
a deed, dated April 5, 1710, by which John Horton of Rye, 
yeoman, gave his "brother-in-law Isaac Covert," of Rye, 38 acres 
in Will's Purchase; but as John Horton sold land to his "brother- 
in-law Daniel Purdy," in 17 16, Purdy may have married a 
daughter of John, 3 and John* have married Covert's sister, or a 
sister of Purdy. That John ' probably had younger children than 
those above named is suggested by the account of his widow 
Rachel, as administratrix, dated Jan. 6, 1712-13, in which is found 
this item: "To charges in bringing up the children from the 
death of their father, being six years, wheroef one was- 10 years, 
one. seven,, one ffower, and the youngest, one year old — £30." 
As before stated, it is very probable that Hannah, wife of 
Thomas Robinson, and Benjamin were children of Joseph. 3 ■ No 
certain evidence has been seen that John 3 had a son Joseph, but 
a foundation for such a surmise is a deed from Jonathan Horton 
of Rye, to his brother Joseph Horton of Rye, bachelor, for 60 
acres in White Plains, March 2, 1714-15. But was this grantor 
Jonathan' (John 8 ) ? The land which John 4 quit-claimed to his 
brother Jonathan,' was in the Pondfield, and no indication has 
been seen that said Jonathan was in possession of White Plains 
land by 17 15, unless Pondfield were within the limits of that 
place. If John 3 had a son Joseph, it would have been natural 
for John,' eldest son of John, 3 to quit-claim land to him, as John 
did to his brothers in 17 11, unless their father had provided 
Joseph with land (of which no evidence has been seen). Again, 
in the deed from the patentees of the White Plains Purchase to 
their associates, dated Jan. 18, 1722-3, "Jonathan Horton, sou of 
Jonathan," appears among the grantees. It is in no degree prob- 
able that this grantee was Jonathan' (Jonathan,* John 3 ), for Jon- 
athan,' (John 3 ) was under age in 17 n, and if he had a son in 
1723, the latter .would have been but a child. Apparently there 
were two Jonathans in the fourth generation. (See under 7, 

4. Joseph 3 Horton, son of Joseph, 3 was undoubtedly the man 
of Rye, who was propounded for freeman, May 12, 1670, accord- 
ing to the Connecticut Colony records. Probably he was born, 
therefore, by 1649. The will of John' Budd, dated Oct. 15, 1669, 
seems conclusively to show that the testator had given lands to 
his grandsons, John, 3 and Joseph 3 Horton, which were confirmed 
to them in that instrument. On June 8, 1672, John' Budd gave 
Joseph 3 Horton land in Rye, the deed being witnessed by 
"Joseph Horton, Sr." (his father). In the exchange of lands 
between John 3 Budd and Joseph" Horton and wife, dated June 
8, 1673, the lot of Joseph "the younger" was mentioned. Feb. 
27, 1676-7, he and his brother, John, 3 had an assignment from 
John Conklin of the latter's rights in a tract of land in Rye, 
which tract these two brothers and a third party agreed to divide, 
Feb. 21, 1691-2. In 1694, he, of Rye, bought land of the Indians, 
and had laid out 50 acres given him by John Budd. Jan. 6, 

44 Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. [Jan., 

1695-6, he, of Mamaroneck, inn-holder, bought a lot situated 
without the fortifications of New York City, bounded east by 
Broadway. He and his wife, Sophia Jane, had a daughter, Jan- 
netje, baptized Nov. 25, 1696, in the New York Dutch Church. 
April 13, 1697, he, of Mamaroneck, inn-keeper, and wife Sophia, 
mortgaged his New York lot. Nov. 11, 1697, he, of New York, 
and his brother John" of Rye, divided their share of the tract 
assigned them by Conklin. Evidently he had returned to Rye 
by 1698, in which year he represented Rye in the Connecticut 
Court. Nov. 13, 1699, he sold White Plains land; and Dec. 11, 
following, drew land by Bryam River. Jan. 20, 1699-1700, it was 
very probable he who gave his sister, Hannah Robinson, one- 
half an acre of land adjoining that "which David Horton bought 
of our brother, John Horton;" and, on the 25th of the same 
month, gave his son-in-law, Roger Park, one-half of his home-lot 
and one-half of his rights in the White Plains Purchase. Oct. 30, 
1701, he, of Mamaroneck, and wife Sophia, sold his New York 
lot. Jan. 13, 1702-3, he, of Rye, sold land in Budd's Neck. April 
4, 1703, he and wife, Sophia, sold one-eightieth of a division of 
land for which a patent had been granted to Walters and others. 
May 29, 1704, he sold all his right in lands " within and without 
the field of Rye." April 11, 1709, he drew a lot in Will's Pur- 
chase. March 11, 1714-15, the ear-mark of Joseph, Sr., was reg- 
istered. Nov. 23, 1722, some Joseph sold 70 acres in White 
Plains. (Mr. Baird thought that this grantor was a son of John, 8 
but no evidence of such identity has been seen.) Joseph s appears 
as Joseph Horton, Sr., as one of the associate grantees in the 
deed from the patentees of the White Plains Purchase, Jan. 18, 
1722-3. June 3, 1725, some Joseph bought land in White Plains. 
May 11, 1727, some Joseph was among the residents of Rye and- 
White Plains, who signed a petition to the Governor of Con- 
necticut Colony for permission to collect subscriptions toward 
building a meeting house in Rye. The year of death of Joseph,* 
or of his wife Sophia, has not been found, and no will of either 
of them is of record. July 6, 1733, some Joseph Horton of Oyster 
Bay, sold 12 acres in White Plains, and Roger Park was one of 
the witnesses to the deed. 

As Joseph' died intestate, and no deed from him to any child 
has been found, it is difficult to name his children with certainty, 
or the order in which they were born. Joseph' Horton very 
probably had issue: 
14 i. Joseph.* 

ii. , m. Roger Park. 

iii. Jannetje (Jane), bap. Nov. 25, 1696. 

Possibly he also had : 
iv. Isaac. 

It seems to have been his son "Joseph, Jr.," who was one of 
the associate grantees from the patentees of the White Plains 
Purchase, and who was chosen constable of Rye, April 2, 1723; 
and it may have been he whose ear-mark was entered there, Aug. 
i4) x 7 2 5- That Joseph' had a son Isaac, is purely conjectural, 
but some Isaac Horton took the ear-mark of "his uncle, Samuel 

I9°5-J Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. 45 

Horton," Feb. 16, 1743-4, and seems to have been in this gener- 
ation, though possibly he was a son of one of the brothers of 
Joseph'; the lateness of the date, however, suggests that he may 
possibly have been Isaac' (Caleb,* John'), and that Samuel 3 was 
his great-uncle. Mr. Baird offered no child of Joseph ' except 
Joseph.* The Horton Genealogy gives Joseph 3 sons, Joseph, John 
and Benjamin and a daughter Janitz; but no John has been seen 
in this generation who seems to have been other than John* 
(John'); and no Benjamin has been found other than he who 
was probably a son of Joseph.' 

5. Samuel ' Horton, son of Joseph,' and probably born between 
1652 and 1656, appears but little of public record, being first seen 
in 1683, as a witness. On Nov. 12, 1702, he bought a house and 
one and a half acres of land in Rye. Oct. 27, 1707, John * Horton, 
" son of Capt. John Horton, deceased," quit-claimed " unto my 
two unkles, namely, Samuel Horton and David Horton," of Rye, 
all the interest grantor had in the White Plains Purchase, "that 
was my honored grandfather's, Capt. Joseph Horton, deceased." 
Samuel ' removed to White Plains, and the location of his house 
is shown on the earliest map of that place. Probably it was he 
(the page is torn) who was an overseer of roads there in 1726, and 
an assessor in 1728. He was among the residents of White 
Plains who petitioned the Governor of Connecticut Colony, May 
n and Oct. 6, 1727, for permission to collect subscriptions toward 
building a meeting house in Rye. He died intestate, and the 
time of his decease has not been ascertained, but probably it was 
prior to April 24, 1733, when David 3 Horton, Sr., of White Plains 
quit-claimed to his nephew, John* of Rye, all grantor's right to 
the land in White Plains, "which was formerly in ye possession 
of my brother, Samuel Horton." Feb. 16, 1743, was registered 
the ear-mark of Isaac Horton, which was formerly that of " his 
uncle Samuel Horton." 

Considering the deed from David 3 to his nephew, John,* just 
mentioned; that Isaac took the ear-mark of his uncle Samuel; and 
that no deed from Samuel ' to a child has been found, it is prob- 
able that he left no son. This view is strengthened by a deed 
from John' Horton (John 3 ), dated Feb. 27, 1737, by which he 
sells to John Budd all his right in the White Plains Purchase, 
"as it did come and descend to me from my uncle, Samuel Hor- 
ton." It would seem that the lands of Samuel ' had passed 
according to the usage of the times to John,* eldest son of Capt. 
John,' deceased, who was the eldest brother of Samuel.' Neither 
Mr. Baird nor the Horton Genealogy gives Samuel ' any children; 
but it seems probable that he had issue: 
15 i. Samuel.' 

The reason for this probability is that " Samuel Horton, Jr.," 
signed the petition of May 11, 1727. No indication has been 
seen that Samuel " had other children. 

6. David' Horton, son of Joseph,' and probably born between 
1654 and 1660, has first been found of record in 1697, as a wit- 
ness. Before 1700, he had bought land of his brother John.' 

46 Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York, [Jan., 

Oct. 27, 1707, he and his brother Samuel,* had a quit-claim deed 
from their nephew, John 4 (John"), of all interest that the grantor 
had in the White Plains Purchase that had belonged to his grand- 
father Joseph.' The ear-mark of David* was entered in 17 19. 
He was one of the patentees of the White Plains Purchase, and 
one of the grantors who deeded rights therein to their associates, 
Jan. 18, 1722-3. He removed to White Plains, and March 5, 1725-6, 
sold White Plains land to his "son, David Horton, Jr.," of the 
same place, acknowledging the deed on Oct. 29, 1733. He was 
among the number who signed petitions to the Governor of Con- 
necticut Colony, May n, and Oct. 6, 1727, relative to building a 
meeting house in Rye. April 24, 1733, he quit-claimed to his 
nephew John,* the land in White Plains which had formerly been 
in the possession of grantor's brother Samuel.' The year of 
death of David' has not been found, nor has any will; and the 
name of his wife has not been seen of record. David * Horton 
certainly had issue: 
16 i. David.' 

Possibly he had other children, but no evidence that such 
was the case has been seen of record. 

That David' had a son David,' is unquestionable, though no 
writer about the family has mentioned him. Mr. Bolton thought 
that the sons of David' were Joseph, Thomas, John and Daniel. 
Mr. Baird expressed no independent opinion, but simply re- 
peated the statement. It is unknown what Mr. Bolton's 
grounds were for thinking that David* had the sons named 
by him. In the time of that historian, however, the first vol- 
ume of Rye Deeds and the earliest records of town proceed- 
ings were in existence, and in his examination of them he may 
have seen something that proved his assertion; but in the extant 
records of Rye, and deeds elsewhere recorded, the only certain 
child of David' discovered was David, Jr. The Horton Genealogy 
says that David ' married Esther King, perhaps, and had Joseph, 
Thomas, Daniel, Samuel, John, Jeremiah, Abigail and Ambrose. 
In this generation, there was probably more than one Joseph; 
but no evidence has been seen that David' had a son of that 
name. No Thomas, Jeremiah, Abigail or Ambrose has been 
found in this generation. The only John seen seems certainly to 
have been a son of Capt. John.' There is abundant evidence of 
a Daniel in this time, but none whatever has been found that he 
was a son of David.' We know that John ' had a son Daniel,* as 
shown by the deed of his brother John in 1711, when this Daniel 
was under age. Were there two Daniels in the fourth genera-

By Hopper Striker Mott. 

Varying estimates have been made as to the number of 
American prisoners confined in New York. On Washington's 
retreat after the disastrous battle of Long Island, Aug. 27, 1776, 
there remained in the hands of the British over one thousand 
prisoners of war. The enemy took possession of the city on 
Sept. 15, and when on Nov. 16, Fort Washington was taken, some 
twenty-seven hundred more captives fell into their power. 
Numerous others, private citizens, arrested for their political 
principles in the vicinity should be added to the list and a con- 
servative estimate would place about five thousand at the dis- 
posal of Sir William Howe. The ordinary places of confinement 
were crowded and it became necessary to appropriate others. 
The three Dutch churches, together with Columbia College, the 
new jail, afterwards the Hall of Records, lately razed, the new 
Bridewell in the Park fronting Murray Street, torn down in 
Aug., 1838, the old City Hall on the site of the Sub-Treasury in 
Wall Street, and the Sugar House were used and filled to their 
capacity. The treatment accorded the unfortunates was so cruel 


1905.] Anne Mott. 59 

and outrageous that many appeals to soften and ameliorate their 
condition were made to the British by kind-hearted residents. 
The effect produced was slight. 

In 1777, Washington appointed a merchant, Lewis Pintard, 
an American agent to relieve the prisoners to such an extent as 
very limited means warranted. Depredations by the enemy's 
officials were made on most of the articles supplied and the cap- 
tives derived but little benefit from the arrangement. Cold and 
overcrowding added greatly to the discomforts, and the first 
winter of the war passed amid great suffering and privation 
among them. Even Pintard was thought to have been derelict, 
for in one of his letters to his chief, during the next year, he 
denied that he had ever refused to send such necessaries as he 
could acquire and thought proper to the sufferers. His duties 
were burdensome to him but not until March of 1780 did he 
make an effort to be superceded. He then wrote Washington 
and requested that another should be appointed in his stead, as 
he desired to return to his farm, saying he was confident that his 
retirement would allay jealousies among the citizens of New 
York. He confessed in November of the same year that he was 
" fairly worried out in his disagreeable situation," and in Decem- 
ber, after expresing his appreciation of the honor, he refused to 
accept the reappointment because of the arrival of his family 
who had been badly treated, he himself having been personally 
threatened. He died about 181 7, at Princeton, and was buried 
in Amity Street. He deserves this recognition for services en- 
titling him to lasting remembrance. 

There seems to have been no systematic plan of relief by the 
citizens of New York, and yet much was done by a few charitable 
residents, who, in the face of a hostile soldiery and at the risk of 
insult and indignity, supplied many comforts not otherwise ob- 
tainable. Even some of these charitable individuals were ban- 
ished by Sir Henry Clinton because of their solicitude and care. 
Not many of their names are preserved to us; only nine in all 
have had scattering notice among the records of the time. That 
their services were appreciated by the poor wretches can be be- 
lieved and to one of those who ministered unto their want, Mrs. 
Anne Mott, substantial recognition was accorded. It is related 
that on one of her daily rounds, at a time when there was rejoic- 
ing among a party of officers over an expected exchange, one 
of them removed from the mess table a cloth on which their 
frugal meal had been partaken and presented it as a grateful 
gift for favors received, a memento to this day preserved and 
cherished by her descendants. Its material is white linen dam- 
ask, with the initials "A. M" embroidered in sampler pattern by 

She seems to have selected the sugar-house as her place of 
service, possibly because in the Monkey Hill Court House (which 
stood at No. 236 William St.), lived th« prison keeper and it was 
to him that prisoners were first brought and after examination 
sent thence into the prison, while the captors received their re- 
ceipt in the house. Here specially deserving cases could be 

60 Anne Mott. [Jan., 

singled out and such articles as they needed ascertained before 
they were huddled together in the sugar-house. 

Mrs. Mott was born at Glen Cove, L. I., Aug. 10, 1747, and 
grew up in a county atmosphere of loyal obedience to the Crown. 
Her father, however, was a strong whig and voted in favor of 
sending Deputies to the Provincial Congress. She was the 
daughter of Joseph and Freelove (Weeks) Coles of Glen Cove 
and her paternal ancestor came to Massachusetts Bay with 
Winthrop. Her brother Jesse was a patriot in the war in the 
confidence and secret service of Washington. She married in 
early life (Dec. 29, 1765) Isaac Mott, a Quaker merchant and 
lived at Hempstead Harbor for some years. Three sons, Samuel 
Coles, Jordan and Jacob Coles, and a daughter Jerusha were the 
issue of this union, the two elder being born there. Later the 
parents removed to New York. At the beginning of hostilities, 
she was about twenty-eight years of age and being of a kind and 
charitable disposition, the suffering of her countrymen appealed 
to her nature. Endowed with a fair share of this world's goods she 
was enabled to give rein to her inclinations to the great assist- 
ance of those to whose necessities and desires she was never deaf. 
Her benevolence was actively exerted to relieve their needs. 
Small of stature, of a sweet and pleasing appearance, during life 
she, with her daughter-in-law Winifred Mott, was associated with 
many charitable and elemosynar'y institutions. A silhouette of 
her taken in young womanhood makes her pretty and this and a 
bust (post-mortem) are the only representations of her extant. 
Her only daughter married the Rev. George Strebeck in Oct., 
1793, and thereafter she made her home with them, at one time 
at the rectory of St. Stephen's Church, at the corner of Chrystie 
and Broome Streets, of which he was rector. At her daughter's 
death she became an inmate of the home oi her son Jordan at 
the Mott Homestead in Bloomingdale, an old time landmark 
which was razed in 1895 in order to extend West 54th Street to 
the river. There she died "at high tide at 54 min. past 9 A. M.," 
of July 16, 1840, at the advanced age of ninety-two. The funeral 
occurred on Friday afternoon, the 17th. at five o'clock. Her re- 
mains were deposited in the Striker family vault in the yard of 
the Bloomingdale Dutch Reformed Church, to which family she 
became allied through the marriage of Jordan Mott, Sept. 24, 
1801, to Lavinia (Winifred), the daughter of James and Mary 
(Hopper) Striker of Striker's Bay. The walls of this church, 
because of their solidity, were blown down during its demolition 
in 1868, to allow of the construction of the Boulevard and the 
vault was abandoned. She now lies at Greenwood, at rest after 
a long life of Christian endeavor and good deeds.

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society has been in exist- 
ence for thirty-five years and is now prospering. Yet its membership is not as 
large as it should be for it to accomplish its proper work. It should receive a 
more generous support, especially from our patriotic societies. These are full 
to overflowing while the New York Genealogical Society, which has been a 
foster mother to them, is neglected in the general distribution. Nor is the 
neglect suffered by this Society peculiar to it alone; the same is the case with 
the rest of the genealogical societies. There are in all some twenty-three 
patriotic organizations whose combined membership amounts to very many 
thousands. Not a tithe of this membership, however, belongs to our genealog- 
ical bodies, although it must be confessed that without the assistance of the 
latter a large part of those now enrolled in the patriotic orders would not have 
been able to prove their eligibility. This is not as it should be. The patriotic 
societies owe too much to their genealogical helpmates already, and have too 
much need of their future assistance for themselves and their children, to 
allow them to languish. Then why is it that there is such vast disparity be- 
tween the membership of these kindred organizations ? Why do not more of 
those belonging to our patriotic orders become members of our genealogical 
societies ? We must believe that the comparative neglect under which the 
latter are suffering is due to imperfect knowledge of the important relationship 
which they hold both to the patriotic orders themselves and to the American 

The gathering, preserving and publishing of genealogical records is no 
idle, or petty pursuit, but one that is vital to the patriotism, the pride and the 
history of the people of this country. There are too many who, ignorant of 
this relationship, regard such records as dry and trivial, yet it must be 
acknowledged that it is out of just such material, often taken from musty 
rolls and time-stained parchments, that all history is written. Let this be 
clearly understood in its application to the history of one's own family, or 
one's immediate ancestors, and there will be no lack of appreciation of gen- 
ealogical records, or of assistance in their collection and preservation. When, 
for example, certain of our Senators and members of Congress became desir- 
ous of proving their right to membership ih one of our patriotic societies they 
first became assiduous in their search amid the musty records of the Congres- 
sional Library, and afterward they quickly passed a bill appropriating money

for the better preservation and arrangment of the long neglected and dust- 
covered manuscripts which they found piled away in the mouldy vaults of the 
library building. We wish that all those who have entered our patriotic 
societies by the assistance of the records found in any genealogical library, or 
society, would imitate these members of Congress and do something for the 
source of their indebtedness. 

To the undiscerning eyes of the causal reader the pages of a genealogical 
magazine, such as the Record, may appear dry and uninviting, containing 
little else than endless records of births and baptisms, marriages and burials, 
dry as the dust of church-yards, — nothing but bones ! So at first did the valley 
of dry bones appear to the prophet in his vision. Yet as he gazed, lo ! there 
was a shaking among them; the bones came together, each bone to its fellow; 
flesh also came upon them, and they lived and stood up, an exceeding great 
army. So is it with dry genealogical records. They are capable of coming 
together each to its fellow, of being clothed with vital interest and of becoming 
living histories. 


Clark, Charles Finney, a member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society for sixteen years, died while abroad, Sept. 3, 1904, aged 
sixty-eight years. He was born Aug 30, 1836, in Preble, Cortland Co., N. Y., 
and was the son of the Rev. Gardner Kellogg Clark and Lucy Bement of 
Cortlandville, who were married in 1824. His father was born 1796, in Brad- 
ford, Vt.; was a Presbyterian clergyman, and is said to have been one of the 
founders of Wesleyan College. He was the grandson of Joseph Clark of New 
Salem, N. H., born in 1751, and Sarah Morrison of Hamstead, N. H., who were 
married in 1774. His great-grandfather was Joseph Clark of Roxbury, Mass., 
a descendant of William Clark of Marblehead, Mass., 1638. 

He was educated at Homer Academy, N. Y., taught school for some years 
and afterward studied law in the office of Crane and Wesson of Detroit, Mich. 
For a while he published the Detroit city directory and later was associated 
with Carl Schurz in the publication of The Detroit Post. He found his life 
work, however, in the development of Bradstreet's Merchantile Agency, be- 
coming successively superintendent for the Detroit, Philadelphia and Boston 
offices, and then general manager with headquarters at New York. The busi- 
ness was incorporated in 1876 as the Bradstreet Company, Mr. Clark becoming 
secretary. Later he was elected to the presidency of the company, which 
office he held until the time of his death. He was also one of the original in- 
corporators and the first vice-president of the Washington Trust Company 
from the time of its organization, a director of the American Cotton Oil Com- 
pany, and of the Niagara Falls Power and Construction Company. He was a 
member of the Chamber of Commerce, the St. Andrews, American Geograph- 
ical, New England, and New York Genealogical and Biographical Societies; 
was also a member of the Union League, Metropolitan, Lotos, Grolier, Hard- 
ware, Church and Merchant's Clubs, and for many years was treasurer of St. 
James church of this city. 

Mr. Clark was a man of the highest character and ability, and his loss has 
been deeply felt by the companies of which he was an officer. In its memorial 
resolutions the board of directors of the Bradstreet Company deplore his sud- 
den death, and say: " Mr. Clark was a leader of men, with a genius for organ- 
ization and unlimited capacity for work on broad lines and for patient attention 
to details. He was also the most modest of men. * * * His chief ambition 
as he himself often stated, was to perfect the organization of the Company so 
that its efficiency, success and prosperity would be independent of the life of 
any one man. It is a consolation to those who mourn his death that this am- 
bition has been attained; that Bradstreet's will remain as an enduring monu- 
ment of his achievements, and that its great work will be continued on the 
lines marked out for it by the earnest and gentle spirit which created and 
organized it." And the resolution of the board of trustees of the Washington 
Trust Company, after expressing painful sorrow for his decease, declare: 

«9°5-J Obituary. 65 

" He was a man of untarnished integrity, clear perception and of wise business 
foresight. In addition to these traits of character, his personality bore the 
charm of rare sweetness and strength. A devoted Christian gentleman, 
courteous, patient, free from prejudice, single-minded and equitable in his 
judgment, he made a firm friend of each and every one of his associates." 

Charles Finney Clark was married first, in 1862, to Sarah Wilder of De- 
troit. She died in 1868, leaving one child, Sarah Juliette, now wife of the Rev. 
Henry Phipps Ross of Taunton, Mass. He married again, Oct. 13, 1870, Ellen 
Marcia Fogg, daughter of Ezra D. Fogg of Providence, R. I., and Sarah Shel- 
den Martin. His widow and two of her children survive him, Ella Mabel 
Clark and Charles Martin Clark, treasurer of the Bradstreet Company. 

Cesnola, Luigi Palma Di, a member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, died November 21, 1904, at his residence in New York 
City, aged seventy-two years. He was born June 29, 1832, in Rivarolo Canavese, 
near Turin, Italy, and was an Italian nobleman by birth. The Palma family to 
which he belonged is one of the oldest of Piedmont. As early as the latter 
part of the eleventh century one, Giacoma Palma, was Lord of Rivarossa, and 
later other members of this family were made counts of Borgofranco and 
counts of Cesnola. General di Cesnola was the rightful Count of Cesnola 
until he renounced his title and became an American citizen. His father was 
an officer in the Piedmontese army and became a colonel of cavalry under the 
first Napoleon with whom he fought throughout the Russian campaign. His 
mother was the Countess of Rica di Castelvecchio. 

He was educated by private tutors until the age of fifteen when he entered 
the seminary of Ivrea intending to enter the priesthood, but in 1848, war break- 
ing out between Austria and Sardinia, he left the seminary and fought for 
Italian indepencence as a volunteer in the Sardinian army. He was promoted 
Second Lieutenant of the Queen's Guards for bravery on the battlefield of 
Novara, and at the close of the struggle completed his military education at 
the Royal Academy when he was promoted First Lieutenant and served in the 
Sardinian army for several years, taking part with it in the Crimean war. For 
distinguished bravery at the siege of Sebastopol he was decorated by the 
British commander-in-chief with the Victoria cross. Having resigned from 
the Sardinian army he came to New York in the later part of i860. At the 
outbreak of the Civil war he first established a military school and drilled 
therein more than seven hundred officers of volunteers, and then, in October 
1861, gave his services to his adopted country, accepting a commission as 
Major of the Eleventh New York Cavalry. Two months later he was promoted 
Lieutenant-Colonel of the same regiment, and in September 1862 was com- 
missioned Colonel of the Fourth New York Cavalry. Although only a Colonel 
by commission he commanded a brigade of cavalry during the greater part of 
his service. In a cavalry charge, June 17, 1863, he was complimented for 
heroic conduct by General Kilpatrick who presented him with his own sword. 
In the battle of Aldie he was severely wounded and captured and remained 
nine months in Libby prison. After his release he was brevetted Brigadier- 
General and later received from Congress a medal of honor for heroic conduct 
on the battle field of Aldie. 

In April 1865 President Lincoln, only a few days before his death, offered 
him the consulate at Cyprus provided he would become an American citizen. 
General Cesnola accepted the offer and became the United States Consul at 
Cyprus, where he remained twelve years. While there he made the important 
archaeological discoveries which will be forever associated with his name, 
and which Sir Henry Ledyard declared: "added a new chapter to the history 
of art and archseology." Becoming impressed with the idea that Cyprus was 
the meeting point of Phoenician and Grecian art he gave the time which could 
be spared from his official duties to the task of identifying the sites of ancient 
cities and the work of excavation among their ruins. The result was the great 
collection of Cypriote antiquities, consisting of more than thirty-five thousand 
articles, including jewels and gold ornaments, the first known works of Phce- 
nician art, a fine collection of Greek glass and some of finest terra cotta vases 
the modern world has yet seen. This collection, which furnishes the missing 

66 Obituary. [Jan., 

link connecting Egyptian and Assyrian art with that of Greece, and for which 
offers were made by Napoleon III for the Louvre and by Lord Beaconsfield for 
the British Museum, was finally purchased by the trustees of the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art in New York where it is now displayed. This was really the 
nucleus of the museum. It was natural, therefore, upon his return to America 
in 1877 that General Cesnola should be elected a trustee of this institution and 
then Director of the same. He became "the living spirit of this great institution 
of which New York is justly proud", and gave his entire time and genius to the 
task of making it, what he always said it would be one day, the greatest 
museum in the world. He also wrote several articles upon his explorations in 
Cyprus, the most important of which was a volume entitled: "Cyprus — Its 
Ancient Cities, Tombs and Temples, " which was published in 1878 both in 
London and New York. For this and his discoveries he was signally honored 
by institutions and dignitaries all over the world. Columbia and Princeton 
Universities gave him the honorary degree of LL. D. He was elected an 
honorary member of the Royal Academy of Science of Turin, of the Royal 
Institute of Fine Arts of Bologna, Italy, and of many similar bodies. Victor 
Emanuel, King of Italy, and the King of Bavaria bestowed knightly decorations 
upon him, and King Humbert of Italy caused a gold medal to be struck in his 
honor. In 1897 he received a medal of honor from Congress. 

Gen. Luigi Palma di Cesnola was married during the Civil war to Mary 
Isabel Reid, second daughter of the late Commodore Samuel Chester Reid, U. 
S. N. (b. 1783; d. 1861,) who commanded the " General Armstrong" and with 
her fought one of the most remarkable of battles in the harbor of Fayal in 1814, 
and who designed the United States flag in its present form. She died about 
two years ago. He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Albert Delcambre and 
Louise di Cesnola. 

Cornell, Alonzo B., twenty-fifth Governor of the State of New York 
and honorary member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 
died October 15, 1904 at his home in Ithaca, N. Y., and was the eldest son of 
the Hon. Ezra Cornell, the founder of Cornell University, and Mary Ann 
Wood. His grandfather, Elijah Cornell, married Eunice Barnard, daughter of 
Reuben Barnard of Nine Partners, Dutchess County, N. Y., and was the son 
of Elijah Cornell and Sarah Miller, daughter of Benjamin Miller of Warren, 
R. I., and grandson of Stephen Cornell and Ruth Pierce, daughter of John 
Pierce of Swansea, Mass. Stephen Cornell was the son of Stephen Cornell of 
Dartmouth, Mass. and Hannah Mosher, daughter of Hugh Mosher of Dart- 
mouth, Mass., and grandson of Thomas Cornell of Portsmouth, R. I., who was 
the eldest son of Thomas Cornell who came to America about 1638, settled at 
Portsmouth, R. I. where he died in 1655, and who was for some years an 
inhabitant of the Dutch colony of Manhattan and received from Governor Kieft 
a patent to a grant of land on the East River since known as Cornell's Neck. 

He received his education at Ithaca Academy, and then, when only four- 
teen years of age, determined to follow in the footsteps of his father, who had 
been connected with Professor S. F. B. Morse in the original development of 
the magnetic telegraph, and was then engaged in extending this invention 
througout the country. He began at the bottom as a telegraph operator and 
was promoted from one post of responsibility to another until in 1868 he was 
elected a director of the Western Union Telegraph Company, a position which 
he held until his death. For several years he served as vice-president and in 
1875, during the absence of the president in Europe, acted as president of the 
company. It is said that while he was manager of the Western Union office at 
Troy N. Y. he was the first to discover that messages could be taken by sound. 
He was interested also in various railway and steamboat enterprises both in 
the United States and South America. From its foundation, in 1865, he was a 
trustee of Cornell University and devoted much of his time to the interests of 
this great institution established by the generosity of his father. He was also 
president of the Cornell library at Ithaca. 

Governor Cornell's political life began early. Upon the organization of 
the Republican party he became affiliated with it and soon took a promi- 
nent part in its councils. In 1868 he was nominated as the Republican 

1905.] Obituary. 6j 

candidate for Lieutenant-Governor but was defeated. The following year 
he was appointed Surveryor of the Port of New York, an office which 
he held until 1873 when he was elected to the Assembly, of which he 
was made Speaker. From 1870 until his election as Governor he served as 
chairman of the New York Republican State Committee. At the beginning of 
his chairmanship he effected a reorganization of the party in New York City, 
and his management of the Republican campaign of 1872 in his own state won for 
him eminent repute as a sagacious and effective political manager. He was 
one of the delegates-at-large to the national conventions of 1876 and 1880, and 
meanwhile was a member of the Republican National Committee. In 1879 he 
was chosen Governor of the State of New York by a plurality of more than 
forty thousand. 

During his term of office Governor Cornell made an enviable record. His 
appointments were excellent. He brought about a number of reforms including 
the admission of women to vote at school elections, the establishment of the 
state prisons on a self-supporting basis and free from political influence, the 
reorganization of the National Guard and the establishment of a State camp of 
instruction which has served as a model for the militia or other States. The 
State Board of Health and the State Railway Commission were also the 
products of Governor Cornell's urgent recommendations. He moreover rec- 
ommended a modification of the state usury laws, as applied to demand loans, 
which was enacted by the legislature, and has in the opinion of those best 
qualified to judge, resulted in making New York City one of the chief monetary 
centres of the world. "The most prominent characteristic of Governor 
Cornell's administration was the sturdy and independent exercise of the veto 
power. Friends and foes admitted the resolute and impartial hand with which 
he protected public interests from spoliation; special legislation sought for 
selfish private ends was firmly resisted, and improvident appropriations were 
ruthlessly vetoed." (Genealogy of the Cornell Family, p. 134.) 

Governor Cornell was twice married, both of his wives being the daughters 
of George Covert of Ithaca, a life-long friend of his father. His first wife was 
Ellen Augusta Covert, who died May II, 1893. He married again June 9, 1894, 
Esther Elizabeth (Covert), widow of Lyman Horace Hastings, who survives 
him. He leaves also two children by his first wife, Charles Ezra Cornell and 
Henry Watson Cornell. 

Odell, Nathaniel Holmes, of Tarrytown, N. Y., died there Oct. 30, 
1904. He was of the eighth generation in the line of William ' Odell of Con- 
cord, Mass., William ! and (Vowles) Odell, John 3 and Johanna (Turner) 

Odell, John 4 and Johanna (Vermilye) Odell, Jonathan 6 and Margaret (Dyck- 
man) Odell. Jacob 6 and Hannah (Stymus) Odell, and Jonathan S.' and Jane 
(Tompkins) Odell. 

Nathaniel Holmes Odell was born Oct. 28, 1828, in the old Odell home- 
stead near the present village of Elmsford, Westchester Co., N. Y. For 
nearly seventy years, however, he had lived in Tarrytown, in the house in 
which he died. During the past half century his career was one of continued 
usefullness both in private and public life. As early as 1852 he was Clerk of 
the Town of Greenburgh and Justice of the Peace, being at the same time 
actively engaged in commercial pursuits. Mr. Odell was a prominent figure 
in Westchester County politics. Originally a Wig, he later on identified him- 
self with the Democratic party and was twice elected a Member of Assembly. 
In 1864, he joined in organizing the National Bank of Tarrytown and was its 
first Cashier, serving until 1866, when he was elected Treasurer of Westchester 
County and remained in office for three successive terms. In 1875, h e was 
elected Member of Congress. All these positions of trust he filled with honor 
and fidelity. 

In political life Mr. Odell was distinguished rather as a successful organ- 
izer than as a public speaker. His interest in local affairs was constant and 
unceasing; he was one of the founders of the Andre Capture Association and 
later on became its Vice-President. He was a communicant of Christ's Church, 
Tarrytown, and at the time of his death its Treasurer and one of its Wardens. 
In this church the funeral services were conducted by his life long friend the 
venerable Rector Emeritus, Rev. Dr. J. Selden Spencer. The burial was in 
the Odell family plot in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

Pruyn, John Van Schaick Lansing, a life member of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, died Sept. 22, 1904, at his residence in 
New York City, aged forty-five years. He was born March 14, 1859, at Albany, 
N. Y., and was a member of the Pruyn family which for more than two cen- 
turies made their home in Albany and held prominent offices in the city gov- 
ernment. His father.John Van Schaick Lansing Pruyn, (1811-1877) held many 
offices of trust and distinction, and was Representative for the Albany dis- 
trict in the Thirty-eighth and again in the Fortieth Congress, but he was best 
known through his connection with the University of the State of New York of 
which he was Regent for thirty-three years and Chancellor fron 1862 until his 
death. His grandfather, David Pruyn of Albany, married Hilbertie Lansing, 
daughter of Christopher Lansing and Sarah Van Schaick, daughter of John Van 
Schaick, all of Albany, and was the son of Casparus Pruyn by his wife Cather- 
ine Grotsbeck, daughter of David Groesbeck of Albany; son of Francis S. 
Pruyn and Alida Yvern, daughter of Warner Van Yvern, all of Albany; son of 
Samuel Pruyn of Albany, and Maria Bogart, daughter of Jacob Cornelise 
Bogart of Albany; son of Franz Jansen Pruyn who settled in Albany in 1661 
and died there in 1712. His mother was Harriet Corning Turner, daughter of 
Thomas Turner, an officer in the war of 1812, by his wife, Mary Ruggles Weld 
of Roxbury, Mass., a decendant of Rev. Thomas Weld of Roxbury, 1632. 

He graduated from St. John's School at Sing-sing in 1876 and from Union 
College in 1880, whereupon he entered the law office of the Hon. Amasa J. 
Parker and graduated from the Albany Law School in 1882. The same year 
he entered the law firm of Parker and Countryman of Albany. While practic- 
ing his profession with ability and success, he actively engaged in other inter- 
ests; was alderman at large in 1887 and 1888, a member of Gov. Hill's staff, a 
trustee of the Albany City Homoepathic Hospital and of St. Stephen's College, 
Annandale, N. Y., and a member of the Albany Institute. In 1898 upon the 
breaking out of the Boer war, he became interested in the Red Cross work 
within the Boer lines and accepted the chairmanship of the Boer Relief Fund, 
whereupon he gave up his home in Albany and came to New York where he 
remained until his death. On Christmas Day, 1899, he sent a letter to Presi- 
dent McKinley asking his influence to bring the war to a close. Like his 
father he was a man of great public spirit and was much interested in 
questions of educational policy. He strongly urged for many years a reform 
of the Board of Regents. 

Mr. Pruyn early became interested in genealogical research. He published 
in 1882 in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record a genealog- 
ical history of the Pruyn Family and included in the same an extended and 
valuable sketch of his distinguished father. Chancellor John V. L. Pruyn. 
This history he afterward continued in the XXIX volume of The Record. 
Throughout his long connection with the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society he was a helpful and praiseworthy member and officer; 
was its Historian for a number of years, and his loss is deeply felt by the soci- 
ety. He also was a member of the Bar Association, the St. Nicholas Society, the 
Holland Society, the Sons of the Revolution, the Society of Colonial Wars, of 
the Union, Metropolitan and University Clubs of this city and of the Fort 
Orange Club of Albany, and was vice-president of the Netherlands Chamber 
of Commerce. 

John V. L. Pruyn married, June II, 1895, Cornelia Van Rensselaer Erving, 
daughter of John Erving of New York City, who was the son of John Erving 
and Emily Langdon Elwyn, granddaughter of Governor John Langdon of 
New Hampshire; grandson of John Erving and Ann Sheaffe; great-grandson 
of John Erving by a daughter of Governor Shirley of Massachusetts; who was 
the son of John Erving, who came to this country from the Orkney Islands and 
settled in Boston about 1704. Her mother was Cornelia Van Rensselaer, 
daughter of the late William Paterson Van Rensselaer, who was the second 
son of the last Patroon of Albany, Stephen Van Rensselaer by his second wife 
Cornelia Paterson, daughter of Governor Willian Paterson of New Jersey. His 
widow and two sons, Erving Pruyn and Hendrick Pruyn, survive him. His 
eldest son, John V. L. Pruyn Jr., died in infancy.

November ii, 1904, a regular meeting of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society was held at 8.45 P. M. President Evans presiding. On 
motion the reading of the minutes of the last meeting were dispensed with. 
The chair read the report of the Executive Committee announcing the election 
of the following new members: Mr. Herbert C. Andrews, Los Angeles, Cal., 
proposed by John R. Totten; Mr. Frederick H. Hitchcock, 15 East nth St., 
N. Y. City, proposed by Henry Reed Stiles, M.D.; Mr. Richard Hoe Law- 
rence, 15 Wall St., N. Y. City, proposed by Thomas G. Evans; Mr. E. Howard 
Martin, Hotel Savoy. N. Y. City, proposed by William Bunker; Mrs. William 
E. Shepard, 16 East 69th St., N. Y. City, proposed by Thomas G. Evans; after 
which attention was called to the loss by death of the following members since 
the May meeting: Samuel Putnam Avery, life member, died Aug. II, 1904, 
aged 83; Walter Steuben Carter, died June 3d, 1904; Charles Finney Clark, 
died in London, Sept. 3, 1904; John Van Schaick Lansing Pruyn.died Sept. 22, 
1904; James Stikeman, died June 16, 1904; Frederick Samuel Tallmadge, 
President of the Sons of the Revolution of New York, died June 20, 1904. The 
president then introduced the speaker of the evening, Hon. Asa Bird Gardiner, 
LL. D., LH. D., whose subject was " The Ceremonies attending the Evacuation 
of the City of New York by the British Army on November 25th, 1783." Col. 
Gardined opened his lecture with references to early events connected with the 
War of the Revolution. Attention was called particularly to the historical 
value of the papers of Col. Timothy Pickering in the possession of the War 
Department and to the interesting accounts found in his Orderly Book from 
Jan. I, 1783, to Jan. I, 1784, from which a great deal of valuable information 
had been derived regarding this period. Among the more interesting events 
mentioned were the signing of the Preliminaries of Peace on Nov. 30, 1782; the 
arrival of the vessel at Philadelphia on March 24, 1783, announcing the fact 
of the signing of general Treaty of Peace on Jan. 20, 1783; the peace procla- 
mation, general orders and parade by General Washington on April 18, 1783, 
on which occasion the troops were asked to drink to the toast " Perpetual Peace 
and Happiness to the United States of America;" the meeting of Washington 
and Sir Guy Carleton, and the arrangements made as to the British evacuation 
of various places at different dates. An interesting account was given of the 
procession on Nov. 25th, 1783, of General Washington and City Officials to the 
Bulls Head Tavern (Thalia Theatre location), where they awaited the national 
salute of thirteen guns at the Battery to be given on the final evacuation before 
marching down town. The hoisting of the flag at Fort George, the difficulties 
regarding it, and the other ceremonies of the day were also described. Atten- 
tion was called to the final evacuation of the British which took place at Gov- 
ernors Island on Dec. 3 and Dec. 4, 1783, at 1 P. M., the celebrated farewell of 
General Washington to his officers at Fraunces Tavern. The lecture was re- 
plete with important historical data and interesting descriptions. At its close 
President Evans expressed the thanks of the Society to Col. Gardiner for his 
very instructive paper and asked for a few words from the Hon. Isaac Town- 
send Smith who made some very interesting remarks, and gave personal 
recollections of Lafayette and memories of the people and times of 1812. Hon. 
Isaac Lawrence complimented Col. Gardiner on his beautiful address and re- 
quested that it might be published and placed in the archives of the Society. 
The Hon. Abraham Van Wyck Van Vechten followed endorsing the request 
of the previous speaker as to the paper of the evening. On motion the mem- 
bers and guests adjourned to the Library for refreshments. 

At meeting, Dec. 9th, 1904, President Evans read the report of the Execu- 
tive Committee announcing the election of the following new members: Mr. 
Edwin Francis Corey, 56 Wall St., N. Y. City, proposed by John R. Totten; 
Mrs. Ovid A. Hyde, 127 East 93d St., N. Y. City, proposed by Mrs. Thomas H. 
Whitney, after which attention was called to the fact that the following death 
had occurred since the last meeting, Gen. Lugi Palma di Cesnola. The Pres- 
ident appointed the following persons as a Committee on Nominations: Wil- 
liam E. Ver Planck, Hamilton B. Tompkins, Gilbert I. Herbert, Gratz Nathan, 
William A. Boyd. Mr. Howard Randolph Bayne, the speaker of the evening, 





was then introduced. His subject being "A Rebellion in the Colony of Vir- 
ginia." He stated that the population of the colony in 1676 consisted of some 
forty thousand; excessive taxation, restricted trade, and a large accumulation 
of tobacco had done much to put the colonists out of temper which was further 
exasperated by the royal grants to Lords Culpepper and Arlington of prac- 
tically the entire colony, moreover repeated petitions to suppress the Indians 
had been disregarded when a leader appeared, of fine manners and noble 
character, in the person of Nathaniel Bacon the younger who asked for a com- 
mission and permission to lead his followers against the Indians who had 
recently committed a massacre. This being refused he marched forth at the 
head of some 300 men. A proclamation issued by the Governor was effective 
in reducing his followers to some 57 who then attacked the Indians slaying 
some 150 of them on the trip. On returning, Bacon at the head of his followers, 
assailed the Governor and demanded the commission, at which the Governor's 
troops threw down their arms and Berkeley fled. Bacon then organized a pro- 
visional government which, however, depended so largely on his personality 
that when his health failed his followers deserted and his power was soon over- 
thrown. They were later treated with great severity by Berkeley. At the 
close of the paper it was stated that Bacon may be considered the first martyr 
of the Revolution in principle and the first leader of American Independence 
against British tyranny and oppression. President Evans expressed the thanks 
01 the Society to Mr. Bayne for his very instructive and interesting paper.

Lovell Heraldy. This book- 
plate of the Rev. Edmund Lovell, 
LL. D., appears in an old volume 
published in London in 1773. 

In Hutchin's History of Dorset, 
Vol. I, p. 325, we find a Pedigree of 
Lovell, giving the blazon of the 
bookplate and including the name 
of its probable owner, Rev. Edmund 
Lovell, LL. D., Rector of the Parish 
of Tarent Rawston, Co. Dorset, and 
Prebendery of Taunton Chureh, Co. 
Somerset; he died in 1795, and was 
buried in Wells Cathedral. 

This coat-armor is of consider- 
able interest to American readers of 
the name as possibly throwing light 
on the ancestry of Robert Lovell, 
born about 1595, who embarked 
from Weymouth, Dorset, in March, 
1635-6, bound for New England and 
accompanied by his wife Elizabeth, 
aged 35, and five children, Zacheus, 
Anne, John, Ellyn and James, born 
between the years 1620 and 1634. 
These names may be found in Vol. 
IX, of Colonial Papers, 1636-1638, 
in the Public Record Office in Lon- 

Any information relating to Rob-

Richards. My work on the the New Britain, Connecticut, branch of the 
Steele family has brought to light an error in the Richards genealogy pub- 
lished in Rev. Abner Morse's Gen. Register ,1861, Vol. Ill, pp. 45. I 9 2 -405, viz.: 

"Oliver Richards, 8 b. 8 July, 1769, mar. Lydia , and had Oliver, 1 who mar. 

23 Mar., 1807, Mary Kilbourn, by whom he had four children: Amon, 8 Manila, 8 
who mar. Ebenezer Steel; Samuel, 8 Oliver, 8 who mar. 7 Oct., 1830, lived at 
Newington and represented Wethersfield in the Legislature of Conn." The 
following data has been collected from family records of descendants and is 
verified by Andrews' Eccles. Hist. New Britain, Conn., 1807, p. 173; Andrews' 
Memorial, 1872, p. 232; Kilbourn Family, 1856, p. 233: Ebenezer Hart Steele, 
son of Allyn Steele and Mrs. Lucy Jerome Hart, b. at New Britain, Conn., 17 
Nov., 1802; mar. 21 Dec, 1825, Marilla Richards, 6 dau. of Oliver Richards 6 
and Lydia Andrus of Newington, Conn. It was Mrs. Steele's brother, Oliver 
Richards, Jr., the representative to the Conn. Legislature, who mar. 7 Oct. 
1830, Mary Kilbourn, dau. of Simon Kilbourn and Eunice Kirkhamof Newing- 
ton. This correction makes one less generation of Oliver Richards, than given 
by Morse and proves that the four children of his eighth generation should 
be the issue of Oliver Richards 6 and Lydia Andrus. The marriage date of 
his Oliver Richards 1 to Mary Kilbourn, 23 March, 1807, was in reality her 
birth date.

The History of Ancient Wethersfield, Conn., comprising the 
present towns of Wethersfield, Rocky Hill and Newington; and of Glaston- 
bury prior to its incorporation in 1693, from date of earliest settlement until the 
present time. Based upon the manuscript collections of the late Judge Sher- 
man W. Adams, and recast, enlarged and edited by Henry R. Stiles, A. M., 
M. D. Two volumes. Vol. I, History, Vol. II, Genealogies and Biographies. 
New York. The Grafton Press. 1904. Quarto, cloth, pp. 995, 946. 

More than fifty years ago, Dr. Stiles, then a lad of 17, was thoroughly 
" inoculated," by Rev. Dr. Thomas Robbins, the venerable librarian of the 
Conn. Hist. Soc'y, as he tells us in his charming sketch, The Old Librarian* 
with its antiquarian spirit, and confirmed in his attachment to books and 
literature. That the inoculation " took well," is evident by the number of 
works which have since flowed from Dr. Stiles' pen. Commencing in 1859, 
with his History and Genealogies of Ancient Windsor, Conn., and followed 
successively by his brochure on The Mass. Family of Stiles ; his unique essya 
on Bundling; The History of the City of Brooklyn, N. Y, (3 Vols.); the edit- 
ing of Furman's Notes on Brooklyn ; The Prison Ship Series (2 Vols); The 
Connecticut Family of Stiles, and, later, the editing of The History of Kings 
County and the City of Brooklyn, N Y., and by that of The Humphrey's 
Genealogy. If we add to these the Dr's. many contributions to the Record of 
this Society, of which he was the projector and one of the first editors, in the 
form of editorials, book notices and especially Memorials of deceased mem- 
bers, it will be seen that his littrary career has been one of most unceasing 
and prolific industry. His literary work would seem to have been well nigh 
finished by the appearance, in 1892, of his revised and enlarged edition of the 
Windsor History and Genealogies in 2 Vols, octavo. But the enthusiasm of 
such a student as Dr. Stiles seems never to reach a limit so long as life and 
strength remain. 

And now, he comes again to the front, with the two magnificent volumes, 
which form the subject of the present notice. Learning that, by the death of 
the late Judge Sherman W. Adams, Esq., of Wethersfield, a history of that

ancient town, had been left incomplete and unpublished, Dr. Stiles, despite his 
years and conditions of health, strength and circumstances, which would have 
deterred many a man from such an undertaking, resolved to rescue from 
oblivion the work of a (to him personally unknown) fellow-laborer and raise to 
him a monument in perpetuo. It will be readily seen that this undertaking im- 
posed upon Dr. Stiles, the burden of collating and arranging an immense col- 
lection of Mss. left by Judge Adams, which by their very amount and inchoate 
condition, " might," as he says, in his Preface, " well have appalled one not 
accustomed to such matters — especially one, who, like myself, up to that time, 
had never stepped foot in Wethersfield." His previous experience however 
as well as his intimate knowledge of what was needed in a work of this char- 
acter, has enabled him to perform this labor in a manner which will prove 
entirely satisfactory to all readers of the volumes before us. Every page bears 
witness, not bnly to the author's fitness for this line of work, but, to his extreme 
loyalty to the memory and the work of his deceased co-laborer. In those por- 
tions which the living author has been obliged to provide, or to bring down to 
date, he has shown his usual wisdom and tact (as he did in his Windsor), in the 
securing of the most competent help attainable. The history of Newington 
(the former West Division of old Wethersfield), forms a full chapter, from 
the pen of the late Roger Welles, Esq., one of the oldest members of the Hart- 
ford Bar; and the chapter on Rocky Hill (the southern portion of the old town), 
has been most carefully drawn from the manuscripts of the lately deceased 
Rufus W. Griswold, M. D. A peculiar feature of the work is its chapter on 
its Maritime history, which, between the researches of Judge Adams and Dr. 
Griswold, stands out prominently in the history of old Wethersfield. 

As to the genealogies contained in Vol. 2, (200 in number, — many of them 
quite elaborate and extensive), they may be considered as almost entirely Dr. 
Stile's personal contribution to Wethersfield history; and in this department 
also, he has found many willing helpers, whom he cordially credits with their 
aid. An important feature, also, of the work, are certain exhaustive monographs 
contained among the Appendices, mostly by Judge Adams, whose antiquarian 
zeal led him to search out certain local points of Wethersfield history, with great 
fullness of detail, and which, while they may not prove interesting to the ordinary 
reader, Dr. Stiles has, with unerring instinct of their value, seen fit to preserve. 
The progress made by the arts of photography and photogravure within the last 
decade of years, has enabled Dr. Stiles to illustrate his work most fully and 
beautifully; and these illustrations, selected with rare discrimination from 
the wealth of material furnished by the old town, embrace portraits, maps, 
views of old mansions, furniture, tombstones, etc., as well as some charming 
views of the town's scenery. 

The work has .been financed by the very helpful aid of Mr. James Stillman, 
Pres. of the National City Bank of New York, and himself a grandson of the 
old town. It is issued, in a limited edition of 500 copies, by the Grafton 
Press, of this City, to whom as bookmakers, its appearance is a most decided 

.Report on Canadian Archives, 1903. Geo. F. O'Halloran, Deputy 
Minister of Agriculture. Ottawa. S. E. Dawson, Printer. 1904. Quarto, 
pamphlet, pp. 272. 

This report contains an alphabetical list of pamphlets in the Dominion 
Archives in 1902. Many of them are of interest in this country, especially 
those on the early settlement of Canada, and the United Empire Loyalists. 

Public Papers of Daniel D. Tompkins, Governor of New York,

Historian. Published by the State of New York. Albany. J. B. Lyon Com- 
pany, State Printers. 1902. 8vo, cloth, pp. 1451. 

These two volumes complete the public military papers of Governor 
Tompkins, and cover a period which is comparatively little known. This State 
has set an example for its sisters in its liberal publication of military records, 
especially in the history of the War of 1812, with which this series particularly 
deals. These letters bring out in bold relief the hearty co-operation of New

how necessary was the support of this State in carrying the war to a successful 
conclusion. The correspondence also demonstrates that had New York sided 
with her sister states to the eastward, where the war was unpopular, the United 
States would have been thrown back into the arms of Great Britain, a fact 
which has been slighted by the average historian. 

Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of 
New Jersey. Vol. XXIII. Calendar of New Jersey Wills, Vol. I, 1670-1730. 
Edited, with an Introductory Note on the Early Testamentary Laws and Cus- 
toms of New Jersey, by William Nelson. Paterson, N. J. The Press Printing 
and Publishing Co. 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. LXXXIX+662. 

This invaluable volume owes much of its usefulness to the experience and 
judgment of Mr. B. Fernow, who made the abstracts, and Mr. William Nelson, 
the editor. The book contains wills, administrations, inventories, bonds of 
guardians and their releases, bonds of executors, accountings and other matters 
which are most helpful to the student. Mr. Nelson's article on early will- 
making in New Jersey is most thorough, and should be carefully read. We 
are very glad to have such a comprehensive and satisfying work. 

Genealogy of the Crane Family. Vol. II. Ellery Bicknell Crane. 
Worcester, Mass. Press of Charles Hamilton. 1900. 8vo, cloth, pp. 642. 

Vol. I of the Crane family genealogy was published in 1895, and contained 
armorials, English pedigrees, and lists of soldiers and legislators of Connecti- 
cut who were of the Crane family. The present volume deals with the de- 
scendants of Benjamin Crane of Wethersfield, Conn., John Crane of Coventry, 
Conn., Jasper Crane of New Haven, Conn., and Newark, N. J., and Stephen 
Crane of Elizabethtown, N. J., with families of the name in New Hampshire, 
Maryland and Virginia. The compiler has presented this exhaustive history 
of the Crane family in a substantial volume, well bound, printed, indexed and 

Year Book of the Holland Society of New York, 1904. Pre- 
pared by the Secretary, Henry L. Bogert. New York. Knickerbocker Press. 
Quarto, boards, pp. XXI+326. 

Besides the membership rolls, banquet speeches and other interesting 
details concerning the Society itself, this volume contains the records of the 
Reformed Dutch Church at Albany from 1683 to 1700. These include names 
of church members, marriages, baptisms, abbreviations and index, and the 
book is an exceedingly welcome addition to the array of church records already 
published by the Holland Society. There are two quaint "plots" of Albany, 
one from "A Description of the Province and City of New York in 1695," by 
Rev. John Miller, and one surveyed at the request of the Mayor, Aldermen 
and Commonalty, by Simeon De Witt in 1794. 

New England Cox Families, No. 15. Rev. John H. Cox. West 
Harwich, Mass. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 117-124. 

This number continues the notes on Old Colony Coxes, begun in No. 13, 
and is concerned with the descendants of William Cox of Pembroke. The 
compiler earnestly solicits corrections and additions. 

Messages and Proclamations of the Governors of Iowa, Vol. 
VI. Compiled and edited by Benjamin F. Shambaugh, A. M., Ph.D. Pub- 
lished by the State Historical Society of Iowa. Iowa City. 1904. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. X+429. 

These are the messages and proclamations of Governors William Larrabee 
and Horace Boies, two of the most remarkable of the long line of State Gov- 
ernors. The administration of Governor Boies is unique in that it is the only 
Democratic administration since the organization of the Republican Party in 
1856. Brief biographies of the two governors are included in the work. 

74 Book Notices. [Jan., 

The Papers of Captain Rufus Lincoln of Wareham, Mass., 
compiled from the original records by James Minor Lincoln. Cambridge. 
The Riverside Press. 1004. 8vo, cloth, pp. 272. 

Rufus Lincoln was a Revolutionary soldier who served in various capaci- 
ties from 1775 to 1783, at which time he was a captain. During his long and 
honorable service he was taken prisoner, and remained in the hands of the 
British for over three years, refusing to escape, as he had given his parole. 
Captain Lincoln's diaries while a prisoner, his company book, muster rolls and 
letters are carefully preserved in this very interesting volume, many of them 
being facsimiles. A list of American officers and prisoners on Long Island, 
August 15, 1778, shows their rank, corps, and time and place of capture. The 
manuscript list from which this is printed is the only known copy in existence, 
and ought to be greatly appreciated by those whose ancestors' names appear 

Some Allied Families of Kent County, Delaware. No. i. 
David Rees of Little Creek Hundred and the descendants of John Rees, his 
son. Thomas Hale Streets, M. D., U. S. N. Philadelphia. 1904. 12 D, 
pamphlet, pp. 80. 

It is the compiler's purpose in this and subsequent compilations to treat of 
the Rees and Griffin families of Kent County, Delaware. The dispersion of 
these families began shortly after the close of the Revolntionary War, the first 
emigration extending to the Western part of Pennsylvania. They are now 
scattered along the middle belt of states to the Pacific Ocean. The compila- 
tion of this little work shows great care, and its value is enhanced by careful 
referencing and a good index. 

New York and the War with Spain. History of the Empire State 
Regiments. Published under direction of the State Historian. Albany. The 
Argus Co., Printers. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 192. 

At the outbreak of the Spanish War, remembering the neglectfulness of 
those who were responsible for keeping the records of military organizations 
during the War of the Rebellion, the State Historian forwarded to every com- 
manding officer of a New York regiment and troop a suggestion to record cur- 
rent events. Some officers responded, and the results are included in this vol- 
ume, which is illustrated with portraits and scenes of army life. It is a book 
which will become more valuable with advancing time. 

Personal Names of Indians of New Jersey: being a list of 650 
such names, gleaned mostly from Indian deeds of the 17th Century. William 
Nelson. Paterson. The Paterson History Club. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 83. 

The names contained in this list add considerably to our knowledge of the 
Lenni-Lenape language, as they are practically all additions to the standard 
works on Algonquin dialects. It is believed that no such list of aboriginal per- 
sonal names, principally of the seventeenth century, has ever been published 
before, although about half of these names were printed by the author in the 
American Anthropologist for January, 1902. 

History of Berks County, Pennsylvania, in the Revolution, 
from 1774 to 1783. Morton L. Montgomery. Reading, Pa. Chas. F. Haage, 
Printer. 1894. 8vo, cloth, pp. 295. 

This volume is arranged in two books, one on the Revolutionary War, and 
the other containing biographical sketches. Book I contains a list of town- 
ships and districts in the County during the war, an account of the militia 
system, county returns of soldiers, rates of pay of men in service, names of 
county incumbents of National, State and County positions and a list of pre- 
Revolutionary buildings of which pictures have been preserved, and repro- 
ductions of some of them. Book II contains biographies of over fifty, men who 
were prominent at that time, with their autographs, and in some cases their 
portraits. It is a valuable work, and reflects much credit on the patriotism and 
enthusiasm of its compiler.

The Lincoln Family and Branches, of Wareham, Mass. James 
Minor Lincoln. Cambridge. Riverside Press. 1899. 

This record is intended solely for the family, but contains much genealogi- 
cal matter of general interest. It is arranged in a series of charts, beginning 
with Thomas Lincoln "the miller." The volume also contains facsimiles of 
the commissions of Rufus Lincoln, whose Revolutionary papers are noticed 
elsewhere. The ancestry is given of Lydia Sprague, wife of Capt. Rufus Lin- 
coln, showing her descent from Gen. George Godfrey and from Thomas 
Rogers, a signer of the Mayflower Compact. 

Marriage Licenses of Caroline County, Maryland, 1774-1815. 
Henry Downes Cranor. Reprinted from the Pennsylvania Magazine of History 
and Biography, April, July, and October, 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp 62. 

Here are reprinted for convenient handling, the marriage licenses of Car- 
oline County, which was formed in 1774 from parts of the Counties of Dorches- 
ter and Queen Anne. But one year (1776) is missing. The licenses are 
arranged by dates-and are not indexed. They are attractively bound, and the 
type and paper are good. 

Town of Weston, Births, Deaths and Marriages, 1707-1850; 
Gravestones, 1703-1900; Church Becords, 1709-1825. Mary Frances 
Peirce, compiler. Boston. Mclndoe Bros., Printers. 1001. 8vo, cloth, pp. 
V I+649. 

From the standpoint of a student of genealogy, nothing is more useful and 
valuable than original records, intelligently edited and printed. The original 
spelling and wording, and all the data, without additions or corrections, are 
what one desires to see in order to draw his own conclusions, untempered by 
other- people's theories. Such a collection of facts, edited with great care, 
interest and intelligence, is before us in this work. In order to include every- 
thing which may help to establish a pedigree, the compiler has furnished 
gleanings from the Town Files, bits of genealogy, and sixty pages of index. 
It is a model volume of vital records. s 

Transactions of the Huguenot Society of South Carolina. 
No. X. Published by order of the Society. Charleston. Press of Lucas-

This number contains articles on the Huguenots in Dublin, Wills of South 
Carolina Huguenots, and a list of the Society's publications, and is well in- 

Genealogy of the Descendants of Nicholas Hodsdon-Hodgdon 
of Hingham, Mass., and Kittery, Maine, 1635-1904. Publisned by 
Andrew Jackson Hodgdon. Edited by Almira Larkin White. Haverhill, 
Mass. Press of Nichols " the printer." 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 164. 

In arranging this work, it has been the object of the compiler to give all 
the authentic history and genealogy of the first five generations of Nicholas 
Hodsdon and his descendants, after which only the families of Mayor Caleb 
and his brothers, Israel, Peter and John, and his sister, Abigail (Hodgdon) 
Peaslee, are traced. The family has remained, with but rare exceptions, in 
Maine and New Hampshire. The book is copiously illustrated with portraits 
and views of family homesteads. 

Memoir of Joseph Williamson. William Cross Williamson. Boston. 
Press of David Clapp & Son. 1903. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 9. 

This interesting memoir begins with an account of the ancestors of Mr. 
Williamson's father and mother, who were of old Massachusetts stock. He in- 
herited from them a reverence for the history of his country, and was a regular 
contributor to several historical magazines, besides being the Compiler of the 
History of Belfast and the Bibliography of Maine. His useful life reached its 
close on December 4, 1902, and six months later his brother, who wrote this 
memoir, followed him. 

76 Book Notices. [Jan., 

Descendants of Reinold and Matthew Marvin of Hartford, 
Conn., 1638 and 1635, Sons of Edward Marvin of Great Bentley, Eng- 
land, George Franklin Marvin annd William T. R.Marvin. Boston. T. R. 
Marvin & Son. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 659. 

The foundation of the present volume was laid by the late Theophilus R. 
Marvin in a little book entitled Genealogical Sketch of the Descendants of 
Reinold and Matthew Marvin, printed in 1845 and 1848. Other monographs 
followed, and this beautiful volume is the climax of many years of painstaking 
research. Some puzzles have been solved, among them the English origin of 
the Marvin brothers, and the name of the husband of Reinold's daughter Mary. 
The record of the Marvin descendants shows a most remarkable array of 
famous men, particularly in the descent from daughters. Governors Hunting- 
ton of Connecticut and Ohio, Chancellor Walworth and Chancellor Kent, Chief 
Justice VVaite, Rt. Rev. Thos. F. Vail, Bishop of Kansas, and Captain Clark of 
the Oregon, are only a few of the distinguished men who claim Marvin ances- 
try. The present volume, excellent in its mechanical work, well indexed and 
referenced, and very attractively bound, is due to the good judgment of both 
its compilers, and especially to the generosity of Mr. George F. Marvin. 

Ancestry of Lydia Mehitable Chandler. F. W. Goding, M. D., 
Ph. D. Newcastle, N. S. W. Davies & Cannington. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, 
pp. II. 

Dr. Goding, who is the United States Consul at Newcastle, N. S. W., has 
traced his mother's ancestry to William Chandler of Roxbury, Mass., 1637, and 
Thomas Chase of Buckinghamshire, England, circa 1440. Reproductions of 
the Chase and Chandler coats-of-arms are given. 

St. George's Sword and Shield. October, 1904. Flushing, Long 
Island, N. Y. 

This parish paper begins in the October number the printing of the bap- 
tismal register of St. George's Church, Flushing. The record begins with the 
baptism of Joseph Roe, an adult, June 22, 1788. 

The Church Tablet, November, 1904. Published by the First Re- 
formed Church, Passaic, N. J. 

The Tablet has faithfully continued the publication of the Acquackanonk 
records, and has now reached the year 181 1. Its long series of issues, contain- 
ing the registers from 1694, will be found most helpful to anyone interested in 
New Jersey genealogy. 

Catalogue of the Officers and Graduates of Yale University, 
1701-1904. New Haven. The Tuttle, Morehouse & Taylor Company. 1905. 
8vo, pamphlet, pp. 465. 

For nearly one hundred and seventy-five years this valuable catalogue has 
been published triennially, but by a vote of the Yale Corporation, this Trienn- 
ial Catalogue is to be succeeded by a " Quinquennial," the first issue of which 
will appear in 1910. The present issue has been delayed in order to have it 
bear the date of 1905, and thus better connect the old arrangement with the

families which intermarried with them, are contained in this brochure. Sketches 
of descent from the Arnold, Cornell, Feake, Jones, Havens, Tapscott, Under- 
bill, Westcott, Winthrop and other families are given, with descriptions of their 
arms. The appendix contains miscellaneous facts of interest, and the com- 
piler states that she is completing other lines which she will at some future 
time add to the records she has already gathered.

Chadbourne-Chadbourn Genealogy. William Morrell Emery, A. M. 
Fall River. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 61. 

The Cnadbourn family has been associated with the District and State of 
Maine from the time of William Chadbourne, the first American ancestor who 
arrived in the Pied Cow, and settled in what is now South Berwick in 1634, 
He was one of three carpenters sent from England by Capt. John Mason, to 
build what was probably the first saw mill erected in New England. They 
were to work for Mason for five years, after which they were to have fifty acres 
of land on lease for the term of three lives, paying an annual rental of three 
bushels of corn. A large proportion of the men of this family have been 
soldiers, and some have been clergymen, in fact a remarkably large number 
have been well known in their day and generation. 

Isaac Cummings, 1601-1677, of Ipswich in 1638, and Some of His De- 
scendants. Albert Oren Cummins. Montpelier, Vt. Argus and Patriot 
Printing House. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. XVIII+643. 

An interesting feature of this genealogy is the grouping of family traditions 
under a heading of their own, that the reader may at once discriminate be- 
tween the old tales and the proven facts. The work confines itself severely to 
the male descendants, only the marriages of the daughters being recorded. 
Unconnected Cummings families, and the descendants of " Woburn John " 
have their place near the end of the book. It is a history, as so many of our 
American genealogies fortunately are, of a staunch and sturdy stock, thrifty, 
plain people, who could and did shoulder a gun and fight for the country 
when need be, or in times of peace could aid her with their shrewd advice, 
and then when the time of anxiety was over, return to their peaceful occupa- 
tions once more. 

The Stebbins Genealogy. Ralph Stebbins Greenlee and Robert Lem- 
uel Greenlee. In two volumes. Chicago. Privalely printed. 1904. Folio, 
half morocco, pp. 1386. 

These fine volumes, imposing in appearance, and most comprehensive in 
scope are rich in details which gladden the sight of the experienced worker, 
and will no doubt be most helpful to those members of the Stebbins family 
who are fortunate enough to secure copies of this work. No pains or expense 
have been spared to make this history the most complete of its kind. In at- 
tempting to discover the English birthplace of Rowland Stebbins, the Ameri- 
can progenitor, recourse was had to Domesday Book, and photographs were 
made of it and the chest in which it is kept, and facsimiles made of portions 
of the original text, accompanied by translations of it. The biography of 
Rowland Stebbins is very full, and in this as in all the early generations, the 
compilers have given marginal references for each vital statement. Capitals 
are used for the names of Stebbins descendants and their husbands or wives, 
and the head of each family is given in heavy-faced type, thus greatly assisting 
the eye. A very unusual if not original feature is, that following the name of 
the head of a branch, beside the brief tracing back by generations to the 
founder, each ancestor bearing his generation and family number, the wife of 
each forefather is given beneath her husband's name, enabling one to get the 
line at a glance. The compilers have been most successful in discovering the 
places and dates of birth, marriage and death, as well as a good deal of gen- 
eral information. The records of military service in the second volume are 
particularly valuable, because proper references are given for all of them, a 
feature seldom observed in a family histoVy. After noting so much excellence, 
it is most satisfactory to find the index completing this beautiful piece of work- 
manship so thoroughly as to cover 160 pages. In this index the name of the 
Stebbins descendant is followed by the names of his parents, and his genera- 
tion and page number. The volumes are liberally illustrated, and altogether 
reflect great credit upon those interested in their production.

anything like the fulness which is contained in this volume. The Vestry Book 
and some other parts have been printed before, but the present compilation, 
which is authorized by the Vestry, contains the records in their entirety. The 
lists of Communicants, Marriages, Baptisms, Deaths and Burials, together with 
tombstone inscriptions, all covering a period of two hundred and twenty-five 
years, would alone serve to arouse the interest and acquisitiveness of the gen- 
ealogist. This part covers three hundred and thirty pages. There are num- 
erous genealogical notes, and good indexes, with a large number of excellent 
illustrations. We commend the work to those interested in Virginiana. 

History of St. George's Parish, Flushing, Long Island. J. Car- 
penter Smith, S. T. D. Flushing. St. George's Sword and Shield. 1897. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 151. 

This is an exceedingly interesting account of the establishment of the 
church in Flushing, where, laboring under many difficulties, external and in- 
ternal, St. George's Parish has held its ground since 1784. During the eigh- 
teenth century the history of the Parishes of Flushing and Newtown is blended 
with that of the Parish of Jamaica. The last named is the oldest parish, and 
was the residence of the rector. This condition continued until 1809, and 
although necessary from a financial standpoint as well as from the dif- 
ficulty in early days of obtaining a clergyman, was happily concluded, and the 
prosperity of the parish fairly begun. Lists of the Rectors, Assistant Ministers, 
Wardens and Vestrymen complete the history, which is well and copiously 

Genealogy of the Descendants of Jasper Griffing. Clara J. 
Stone. New York. De Baun & Morgenthaler, Printers. Quarto, cloth, pp. 

* Jasper Griffing who was born in Wales about 1648, and came to this country 
when quite young, remaining for a short time in* Marblehead, and finally set- 
tling in Southold, L. I., about 1675. Among his descendants was Augustus 
Griffin, author of Griffin's Journal, which is one of the authorities on the gen- 
ealogy of Southold and Orient families. The present book is rich in informa- 
tion concerning the various branches of the family, which, though scattered, 
have continued to be well represented in Guilford, Conn., and Southold. The 
index is very comprehensive, and shows, with the Griffing descendants, the 
date of birth; with the names of those connected by marriage, the date of mar- 

Contributions toward a Nelson Genealogy. Part I. Some Neil- 
sons of Scotland. William Nelson. Paterson, N. J. The Paterson History 
Club. 1904. Quarto, cloth, pp. VIII+57. 

After considerable investigation by himself and others, the writer of this 
monograph inclines to the opinion that there are two distinct origins of the 
family, one Celtic, and the other English, and more remotely, Scandinavian. 
In the forewords the compiler describes the two main groups of the Nelson 
name, and states that it is his hope to publish further contributions towards a 
Nelson genealogy. The body of the work contains abstracts of wills, accom- 
panied by a genealogical table of their contents, some proctor's and tenants' 
records and other notes.

These enlivening extracts deal with the tribulations of both tories and 
patriots during the early days of the Revolutionary War. How a deal box 
containing " a bedstead and curtains, with sundry men and women's apparel," 
was mistakenly carried off by the 26th Regiment instead of their own baggage; 
what will happen to certain deserters, how a line of " Barcelona black cravats" 
and other luxuries never before exposed will be shortly shown; glorious news

with fascinating effect, the extracts being interspersed with sardonic communi-

Woodhull Genealogy. The Woodhull Family in England and 
America. Compiled by Mary Gould Woodhull and Francis Bowes Stevens. 
Published by Henry T. Coates and Co. Philadelphia. 1904. Cloth, pp. 366. 
Price, $5. 

This interesting genealogy is a valuable contribution to the literature of 
family history. Part First is devoted to The Woodhull Family in England, 
the name having been variously written in the Public Records, Wahul, Wod- 
hull, Woodhull, Wodell, Odell, Odle, etc. The ancient stronghold of Wahul in 
Bedfordshire was the seat of the family at the time of the Conquest; the fortress 
fell into ruins many centuries ago and on its foundation now stands a modern 
building known as Odell Castle. Several attempts have been made to revive 
the dormant title of de Wahul but without success. Part Second is entitled: 
The Woodhull Family in America. Richard Wodhull, Gentleman, the first 
of the name in this country, is traced on Long Island as early as 1648, when he 
witnessed an Indian Deed at Easthampton; he died at Setauket, Oct. 17, 1691. 
His descent from the Baronial family of de Wahul is made clear by the letter 
from Lord Crewe written to Mr. Wodhull in 1687, and produced in facsimile 
in the volume. The Woodhull atchievement of eighteen quarterings, printed 
in heraldic colors, is one of the most interesting illustrations in the book. In 
the early Colonial Records of Long Island, Richard Wodhull is variously 
described as Richard Woodhull, Mr. Richard Odell and Richard Odell, Gen- 
tleman; but wherever his signature is found it always appears as Richard 
Wodhull. A genealogical appendix follows, consisting of notes on the origin 
of many of the families allied to the Woodhulls by marriage. Succeeding 
these references are some fifty biographical sketches of the more distinguished 
members of the family, with a number of well executed portrait, followed by a 
valuable list of the sources of information from which the Woodhull Genealogy 
was compiled. An elaborate index of names completes the volume. Readers 
wishing to communicate with the authors should address. Miss Mary Gould

The Connecticut Magazine. Edited by Francis Trevelyan Miller. 
Hartford 1904. 

This is the Dutch number, and in it the Hollander and his influence on our 
country's history are treated from a Connecticut standpoint. The greater part 
of the issue is devoted to beautifully illustrated articles on Bridgeport, Lime 
Rock, the Governors of Connecticut, and a very interesting essay on lanterns 
in early America. 

Tombstone Inscriptions of Snyder County, Pennsylvania. George 
W. Wagenseller, LL.D. Middleburg, Pa. Wagenseller Pub. Co. 1904. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 279. 

All the epitaphs taken from the markers in every burying ground of 
Snyder County are printed in this convenient form, making a complete record 
from the settlement of this territory before the Revolutionary War down to the 
year 1904. Over eight thousand inscriptions are thus recorded. Under the 
township name is given the name of the cemetery, with a description of its 
location and condition, after which the names of those buried there follow in 
alphabetical order. This is an excellent arragement, and might be used to ad- 
vantage by those making similar collections.

Vol. XXXVI. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1905. No. 2 


Contributed by George H. Story. 

The Palma di Cesnola family is one of the oldest in Italy. It 
is first mentioned in history during the XI Century, when it was 
invested with feudal power and supreme authority over the 
village of Cesnola in Piedmont not far from the City of Ivrea. 
The tower of the ancient castle of Cesnola still remains nearly 
intact, surrounded by dismantled walls and half ruined pillars 
and huge buttresses. Diplomats, magistrates, prelates, orators, 
writers on military, political and religious subjects have been 
enrolled among the descendants of the family: one of the latest 
glories was Count Alerino Palma di Cesnola, uncle of General 
Louis P. di Cesnola, who, condemned to death by the King of 
Sardinia for participating in the revolutionary movement on 
behalf of United Italy, fled to Athens, where he afterwards be- 
came famous as the framer of the Greek Constitution and was 
elected President of the Areopagus. 

L. P. di Cesnola was born at Rivarolo Canavese (Piedmont), 
June 29, 1833; his father, Colonel Maurizio, fought under the 
orders of Napoleon the First and took a gallant part in the tragic 
campaign of Russia; his mother was Countess Eugenia Ricca di 
Castelvecchio. Educated by private tutors and in public schools 
until his 13th year of age, he entered the Military Academy of 
Cherasco. In 1849 when he was only 16 years old, the war 
between Italy and Austria broke out and he, at once, left the 
academy and as a cadet joined the Sardinian army. He was 
promoted Lieutenant on the battlefield of Novara (1849) for merit 
and the King in person decorated him with the gold medal for 
military bravery. He also took part in the Crimean war, fought 
at Balaclava as Aide-de-camp to General Ansaldi and after the 
fall of Sebastopol and the death of his General, he returned 
with his regiment to Italy. 

He came to New York in i860 and first taught foreign 
languages to private pupils; afterwards, when the civil war 
appeared inevitable, he instituted a school of Artillery, Cavalry 
and Infantry tactics, where volunteers were instructed and train 


86 Louis Palma di Cesnola. [April, 

ed to serve as officers in the army. This institute prospered and 
became so popular that, at one time, the pupils numbered more 
than 500. In October 1861 he abandoned teaching to fight for 
the preservation of the union of his adopted country. Appointed 
Major of the XI New York Cavalry, (the famous Scott's 900), then 
Lieutenant-Colonel, and in August, 1862, Colonel commanding the 
IV New York Cavalry under orders of General Franz Sigel, 
Commander of the XI Army Corps. In November of the same 
year, appointed to the command of a brigade of five regiments 
of Cavalry in General J. Stahl's division; was prominent in the 
brilliant battle of Berryville and at Brandy Station, accomplished, 
to use the verbatim statement of the correspondent of the N. Y. 
Times, " miracles of courage and bravery." At the battle of 
Aldie, Va. (June 17, 1863), he was severely wounded, his horse 
being shot under him and he receiving a ball in his left arm and 
two sabre cuts, one on his right hand. His horse tho' wounded, 
charged again with his wounded master; a rifle ball struck him 
on the head and he fell dead carrying with him Cesnola, who re- 
mained with his left leg under the dead charger until found by 
the enemy three hours later; he was made prisoner of war and 
conveyed to Libby prison where he was left until exchanged for 
Colonel Brown, of a Georgian Regiment of Cavalry, who was a 
prisoner at Fort Lafayette. Immediately afterwards President 
Lincoln promoted him Brigadier-General and appointed him at 
the same time, United States Consul at Cyprus. On the 20th of 
Sept., 1865, he left New York for Cyprus, where he remained 
eleven years and six months. 

At the time of his arrival in Cyprus all Europe was talking 
with wouder and admiration of the immense antique vase, dis- 
covered at Amathus, which Napoleon III had presented to the 
Museum of the Louvre; that and many other researches by 
Colonna Ceccaldi, Count de Vogue, etc., had been minutely de- 
scribed in long articles by Longperrier and hopes for better and 
greater discoveries ran high, but unfortunately resulted in 

It is not surprising then, if General di Cesnola — a man of 
superior intelligence and education, a lover of the classic, who 
from much study and reading had embraced the cult of the an- 
tiquities — availed himself at once of the opportunity of visiting 
the places where so many attempts at exploration had been made 
by various French archeologists, and gradually matured a plan 
to renew the attempt, on his own account. 

To this end and with the aid of the works of Strabo, he dili- 
gently studied the excavations of the Island and prepared him- 
self in divers ways for the undertaking which he commenced the 
year following his installation as United States Consul. From 
the beginning his efforts met with unprecedented success. 

In fact he explored and identified the sites of the following 
ancient royal cities: Amathus, Cerynia, Citium, Golgosor Golgoi, 
Lapethus, Neo Paphos, Salamis, Palaeo Paphos; he discovered the 
ruins of the following royal cities mentioned by Strabo, Ptolemy 
and other ancient authors: Ammochossos, Aphrodisium, Car- 

1905.] Louis Palma di Cesnola. 87 

passia, Curium, Cytherea, Marium, Soli or Soloi, Zamassus; dis- 
covered and excavated 65 necropoli, among them Dali — the fam- 
ous Idalium — which contained about 2,5000 tombs, 6 ancient 
aqueducts and 15 ancient temples. From these explorations he 
obtained inscriptions on cylinders, on marble, on terra-cotta; 2,310 
coins; 14,240 vases; 2,110 statues; 4,200 busts and heads; 3,719 
glass vases, bottles, cups, plates, amulets; 4 sarcophagi; 2,380 
terra-cotta lamps, and many others amounting to a total of 
35.573 pieces, among them the treasures of Curium, which in- 
cluded 1,599 objects in gold, 370 in silver, 2,107 in bronze and 
copper, engraved gems, scarabei and cylinders, 146 in rock crys- 
tal and alabaster. 

Art culminated in the works of Greece; but it was in Cyprus 
that Phoenician eclectic art found its important contact with 
Greek genius, and there, in great abundance it transmitted to 
the latter that which they themselves had borrowed from every 
quarter and had in general beautified and utilized only with a 
view to the main chance. It is in these remains from Cyprus, 
discovered by General di Cesnola, that we see the marks of the 
genius of Greek art, with a fullness exhibited nowhere else; it is 
as if a lost manuscript, or better a whole library buried under 
the strata of centuries, had been unearthed by him in Cyprus, 
revealing a long succession of facts about which writers and 
savants of former years had guessed and groped in vain. 

The nature of this article does not consent to an extensive 
analysis of the subject; it must therefore suffice to mention a few 
of the conclusions concerning the Cesnola collection, as pointed 
and summarized by distinguished scholars: 

First, it contributes to modern knowledge a wider field of art 
and a greater amount of important material than has ever before 
been accomplished by any discoverer. 

Second, it forms the most complete illustration of the history 
of ancient art and civilization, revolutionizing many of the 
theories of art. 

Third, it contains the first known works of Phoenician art and 
introduces the Phoenicians as teachers of the Etruscans. 

Fourth, it is the key of the origin and development of Greek 
civilization, illustrating the international encounter of races and 
arts in Cyprus and the manner in which the civilization, religion 
and art of the East were transmitted to, and adopted by the 
Greek. Thus for the reasons above expounded, they determine 
the place of Greece in the history of art. 

Many quotations could be reprinted to support the above 
statements, but a few will be more than sufficient. For instance; 

George Perrot, author of L Histoire de I' Art dans I'Antiquitk 
which is considered one of the greatest works of the age, writes: 
"The name of General di Cesnola has been written in the his- 
tory of archeology on the same line as that of Schliemann and 
near the illustrious names of Botta, Layard and Mariette. The 
Curium treasure is an unique marvel and the discoveries of 
Cyprus were an event without parallel." 

C. W. King says: " The finding of the treasure of Curium is a 

88 Louis Palma di Cesnola. [April, 

true revelation of the history of Glyptic art, in its rise and pro- 
gress, from the earliest time down to the beginning of the fifth 
century before our era." 

Sir Austen Henry Layard, the discoverer of Niniveh, writes: 
" The Cesnola discoveries were truly marvellous and are superior 
in importance and nature of objects to the discoveries made by 
Schliemann in the Troades." 

Tullo Massarani: '^It is due to General di Cesnola if the an- 
tique Cyprus was revealed to the world and the treasures of four 
civilizations, buried during centuries and centuries, brought to 
the light of day." 

Charles T. Newton: "The discoveries of Cyprus have revolu- 
tionized all the theories on art, which — up to date — were accepted 
by the world." 

To these authorities of world wide reputation can be added 
many others who wrote praise and commendation upon the 
Cyprus Collection, its discoverer and illustrator. Among them 
may be mentioned: Sir Henry Rawlison, Sir John Lubbock 
Bart, Samuel Birch (author of the preface to the first volume of 
the Cyprus Atlas); A. S. Murray (Curator of the Greek and Roman 
Antiquities at the British Museum); the Duke of Argyle, John 
Ruskin, William E. Gladstone, Ernest Renan, Mas Latrie, F. 
Lenormant, Longperrier, Waddington, Schliemann, Lepsius, Kie- 
pert, George Ebers, the two Curtius, Ariodante Fabretti, Count 
Federigo Sclopis, Gaspare Gorresio, Count Conestabile, etc. 

Comparatively few Americans know the scientific and artistic 
value of the Cesnola Collection; about which a Curator of a 
European Museum acknowledges that he has had to come all the 
way to New York twice to study it. And Alexander Stuart 
Murray, the greatest authority of the XIX Century on Greek art, 
did not seek to hide his astonishment at the "utter ignorance be- 
trayed by American students of the treasures they have at home 
in the Central Park." He wondered that they should "rush 
across to London and Berlin, while yet unacquainted with one of 
the very first collections in existence, under their very noses at 
home." No European student of Greek art is unacquainted with 
the Cesnola collection in the Metropolitan Museum of New York. 

When the news of the discovery reached New York, the 
Trustees of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (just then founded) 
held a meeting to discuss the report of Messrs. Blodgett, Gordon 
and J. S. Morgan, and the advisability of buying the collection. 
In fact the purchase of the same took place in Nov., 1872, and 
from that date commenced the relationship between General di 
Cesnola and the Museum which culminated in his nomination as 
Director, and which lasted until his death. 

Following is a comprehensive synopsis of events: 

In Dec, 1872, he was commissioned by the Trustees to super- 
intend, in London, the packing and shipping of the collection. 
Feb., 1873, he arranged the Cyprus Collection for public exhibi- 
tion at the Douglas Mansion, 128 West 14th Street. In 1878, he 
sold to the Museum his second collection, excavated between the 
years 1873 and 1877. In the beginning of 1878, he was elected a 

I9°5 ] Louis Palma di Cesnola. 89 

Patron of the Museum. In June, 1878, a Member of the Board of 
Trustees and of the Executive Committee; in September of the 
same year Chairman of the special Committee of Trustees for the 
removal of the Museum from the Douglas mansion to the build- 
ing in Central Park; in May, 1879, by unanimous vote, he was 
elected Director of the Museum, which office he held until his 
decease, Nov. 20, 1904. 

At the time of his death, therefore, he had been head of the 
Metropolitan Museum of Art for a quarter of a century; and as 
his Cyprus collection served almost as a nucleus around which 
the Museum was formed and developed, so his directorship was, 
undoubtedly, the most important factor, by which the institution 
reached its present greatness. The late Mr. William E. Dodge, 
one of the most worthy Trustees and at the time of his demise 
Vice-President of the Museum, writing of General di Cesnola as 
Director, said: "When the General assumed the management of 
the Museum it was a weakly, feeble infant, which appeared des- 
tined, from its birth, to an early death; thanks to him, the infant 
has grown to a healthy, strong, vigorous youth." 

The possessor of great executive and administrative ability; 
of a temperament that courted fatigue and work; of a spirit of 
eclectic adaptability, it could easily be said of him, that which 
is said of the people of his native land: "a wonderful race with 
hundreds of different faces." He was well read in all branches 
of knowledge and learning, especially in the study of antiquity 
and archeology that amounted in him almost to a passion; was 
unchangeable in his love for and devotion to the success, the 
glory and the progress of the Museum; possessed a strict sense of 
justice, of impartiality and of integrity in managing and foster- 
ing the best interests of the Institution. 

Nor, when necessary, did he shirk material labor; as, for in- 
stance, in the case of re-constructing the famous Greco- Etruscan 
Biga (700 years B. C.) found at Monteleone di Spoleto and pur- 
chased by the Museum in 1903 for 50,000 dollars. The portions 
of this Biga arrived in New York in great disorder and confusion; 
with the exception of the three panels (front and sides) all the 
other portions appeared almost a heap of junk, the pole was in 
fragments, the wheels almost unrecognizable. General di 
Cesnola, therefore, was confronted by the double problem of di- 
vining the re-construction of the Biga and of successfully execut- 
ing this re-construction. The work occupied several months, 
always under his personal direction and often with his material 
assistance. When, finally, the Biga was placed on exhibition, 
and photographs of it sent to the Louvre and the British Museum 
it evoked universal admiration. Murray and Perrot pronounced 
the re-construction " wonderful " and the Biga itself, the most 
precious finding of its kind known to the world. 

In one of the obituaries (written by a gentleman who enjoys 
a splendid reputation in art circles, and was, until a few months 
ago, one of the most honored editors of New York) there was a 
passage, which I beg leave to quote verbatim: " He has given 
his entire time to the work of making the Institution what he 


90 Louis Palma di Cesnola. [April, 

always said it would be one day, the greatest Museum in the 
world. He interested men of wealth in it and the institution has 
grown. It was said yesterday that as a director and curator he 
was practically without a peer; and that there is no one in this 
country, who can take his place." He was an honor to the land 
of his birth and still a greater honor to the land of his migration. 
It was indeed his two-fold love for both America and Italy 
that persuaded him to accept the invitation of the Italian Gov- 
ernment to form a committee in the United States for the pur- 
pose of inducing American artists and manufacturers to partici- 
pate in the International Exposition of Modern Decorative Art in 
Turin (Italy), 1902. He selected this committee and as Presi- 
dent of it obtained by private subscription the fund necessary to 
organize the American Section at that Exposition. The Section, by 
unanimous vote of the Jury, visitors and Press, was acknowledged 
one of the features of the whole Exposition and an "Exhibit" in 
itself. To reprint, even in brief, the flattering criticisms of the 
Italian Press, dailies, art-reviews and magazines, would occupy 
too much space; I therefore quote a few paragraphs of an official 
letter written shortly after the opening of the Exposition, by 
Senator Casana, Mayor of the City of Turin, to General di 

" . . . . Now that the International Exposition of Modern 
Decorative Art is open, and the American Section of it is more 
resplendent than ever, allow me to express to you the grateful 
feelings of the City of Turin, because it is due especially to you, 
aided by able collaborators, that the American Section succeeded 
so admirably in increasing the attendance of our Exposition, and 
that the people of the United States have accepted with so much 
sympathy and cordiality the invitation of our City. 

Turin well knows how the Italian name in America is held 
aloft by you, and that any undertaking which you patronize is 
always of a praiseworthy character. Therefore this City is 
grateful for what you have done, and feels greatly pleased to see 
employed in her behalf that genial energy of yours which made 
you a valiant champion of a high ideal on the field of battle, and 
an admirable example of activity and tenacity in the field of art 
and science, to the honor of the country of your birth no less 
than that of your adoption. 

I therefore beg you to accept the thanks of Turin, who feeling 
happy in these days for the success of her noble enterprise, wants 
to remember him who has so valuably co-operated toward it." 

The American Exhibitors were awarded many medals and 
honors; in fact came off triumphant over competitors of other 
nationalities; and that their merits were thus justly and fairly 
recognized was, in great measure, due to the initiative, the 
efforts, the unceasing perseverance and the love for his adopted 
country of the President of the Committee. 

Years will pass, artistic tendencies and taste will modify, the 
educational scope of the Museum will enlarge and increase and, 
without doubt and by the natural order of things and modern 
ideas of men, the Institution will reach a height and prominence

undreamed of by its founders; yes, all this will take place; but 
the name of its first Director will never be forgotten by the com- 
munity and by art lovers both here and in Europe. The Metro- 
politan Museum of Art in New York is now, and will remain for 
all time, the monument — indestructible as truth — to General L. 
P. di Cesnola. 

General di Cesnola's most notable publications are: 
I Cyprus, its ancient Cities, Tombs and Temples; 500 pages, with many 
llustrations; published in London, 1872, by John Murray, in New York, 1878, 
by Harper and Brothers, and in Jena — German translation by Prof, von L. 
Stern->-under the title Cypern, seine alien Stadte, Graber und Tempel, 
autorisierte deutsche Bearbeitung. 

2. Cyprus Atlas, three volumes in folio, to which was awarded the Grand 
Prix at the International Exposition of Turin (1898), and about which archeol- 
ogists in England, France, Italy and Greece have written as one of the most 
important works ever compiled and published. 

3. Fixie lectures on Cyprus, delivered at Cambridge. 

4. Inaugural address at the unveiling of the Monument of Cristoforo 
Colombo in New York. 

5. Address on An American Museum, etc. 

General di Cesnola had many honors conferred upon him by American 
and foreign Scientific Institutions, Academies, Universities and Governments. 
He was a member of the Institut d'Afrique and the Royal Academy of Sciences 
of Paris; the Society of Biblical Archeology and the Royal Society of Liter- 
ature of London; LL.D. of Columbia College; LL.D. of Princeton College; 
corresponding member of the Numismatic and Antiquarian Society of Phila- 
delphia; Honorary member of the Royal Asiatic Society of Great Britain and 
Ireland; Active member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences of 
Boston; Life patron of the American Museum of Natural History; Corres- 
ponding member of American Institute of Architects of the United States; 
Member of the Societa Colombaria of Florence; Honorary member of the 
Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna, etc. 

He received several knightly Orders from the three Kings of Italy: among 
them, Commander of the Order of the Crown of Italy; Commander of the 
Order of St. Maurice and Lazare; Grand Officer of the Crown of Italy, etc.; he 
was knight of the order of St. Michael of Bavaria; Member of the Loyal 
Legion of the United States: was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, 
Dec. 3, 1897.

therefore supplemental to it. 

3 Deborah' Hance (John'), m. 9 mo., 23, 1699, as his second 
wife, George Corlies who was born about 1654, as is shown by 
the fact that when he joined with John Williams in taking the 
inventory of Thomas Potter's personal estate in 1704, he claims 
that he was near fifty years of age. (N. J. Archives, Vol. XXIII, 
page 372.)

(4) John' Hance (John 1 ), had issue by Joyce (Borden) a son 
Joseph Hance as well as the ones heretofore given, who must 
have been born prior to Feb. 18, 1705-6, the date when Francis 
Borden in a codicil to his will leaves a legacy to each of his

Hance. {N.J. Archives, Vol. XXIII, page 46.)

(Continued from Vol. XXXVI., p. 46, of The Record.) 

7. Jonathan* Horton has been placed as a son of Joseph' be- 
cause Mr. Bolton stated that, in 1694, two men "were chosen to 
lay out the land at the White Plains granted to Jonathan Horton 
by the town " of Rye. Mr. Bolton quoted this item, and the 
authority he cited for it was the first volume of Rye Deeds, which 
was extant when he wrote, but which long since disappeared. 
The year named seems quite certainly to place Jonathan in the 
third generation. As Jonathan 4 (John 3 .) was under age in 17 11, 
it seems fairly probable that it was Jonathan * (Joseph ') who 
drew a lot in Will's Purchase, Feb. 18, 1711-12. No other certain 
reference to him has been seen, except in the deed of Jan. 18, 
1722-3, from the patentees of the White Plains Purchase to their 
associates, where he is mentioned as the father of a son Jonathan. 
In this deed, "Jonathan Horton" and "Jonathan Horton, son of 
Jonathan," appear among the grantees, their names being sep- 
arated by the introduction of those of two other men. It seems 
most probable that the first Jonathan named was Jonathan ' 
(John '), and that the second and third were Jonathan * and his 
father Jonathan ' (Joseph'). Had the first been Jonathan,' he 
would probably have been called Jonathan, Sr., and his son 
would have appeared as Jonathan, Jr., and would have immedi- 
ately followed his father. The best theory seems to be that 
Jonathan' was dead by 17 13, though the time of his decease has 

1905.J Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. 105 

not been found; neither has the name of his wife, nor the time 
of her death. Jonathan * Horton very probably had two sons: 
i. Jonathan.' 
ii. Joseph. 
He may have had other children, but no more have been 
seen. It seems fairly probable that it was Jonathan* (Jonathan 5 ) 
who sold land in Will's Purchase, Jan. 13, 1712-13, — his guardian, 
Humphrey Underhill, signing as a witness; that it was this Jon- 
athan, of Rye, who sold his brother, Joseph of Rye, bachelor, 60 
acres in White Plains, March 2, 1714-15; and that he inherited 
these lands as eldest son. The ownership of White Plains land 
by Jonathan 3 as early as 1694, and his death prior to the deed of 
the patentees of that Purchase to their associates, seem to be the 
best reasons why "Jonathan Horton, son of Jonathan," was in- 
cluded among the grantees, he being entitled to his deceased 
father's interests as eldest son. (See under 11. Jonathan,* and 
14. Joseph *). 

8. Benjamin' Horton has been placed in the third generation, 
because he was very probably a son of Joseph. 3 He has first 
been seen of record, Jan. 20, 1699-1700, when he, of Rye, gave his 
sister, Hannah Robinson, wife of Thomas, five acres of land in 
Rye. On Feb. 4, following, he was chosen one of several to lay 
out the White Plains and Lame Will's Purchases; and, on the 28th 
of the same month, bought 3 acres in Apawamis Neck. Feb. 24, 
1701-2, he was named as one of the proprietors of the White 
Plains Purchase, who were to run the line. Aug. 4, 1707, he was 
chosen in the place of Capt. John ' Horton, on the committee for 
building the meeting house in Rye. April 27, 1708, he and others 
were chosen to search the records as to the two Lame Will's Pur- 
chases. Sept. 9, 1712, he appeared as a witness. The time of his 
death has not been discovered; but on Jan. 3, 1 740-1, Parmenus 
Horton of Southold, weaver, sold to Joseph Horton, of Rye, the 
right in the White Plains Purchase, "of Benjamin Horton, my 
honored father, deceased, one of the purchasers " thereof. Ben- 
jamin * Horton had issue: 

i. Parmenus.* 

Possibly he had other children, but no more have been found. 

As already stated, Mr. Baird and the Horton Genealogy seem to 

assign this Benjamin as a son of Capt. John;' but no evidence has 

been seen that indicates a probability that the opinion is correct. 

9. John ' Horton, eldest son of Capt. John, 1 first appears of 
record on Sept. 25, 1704, as John Horton, Jr., when his ear-mark 
was entered. Oct. 27, 1707, he quit-claimed to his uncles, Sam- 
uel ' and David,' all his interest in the White Plains Purchase 
that had been that of his grandfather, Joseph.' April 11, 1709, 
he drew a lot in Will's Purchase. April 5, 17 10, he gave his 
" brother-in-law, Isaac Covert," 38 acres in Will's Purchase. May 
2, 1711, he quit-claimed to his brothers, Daniel, Jonathan, Caleb 
and James, who were then under age, lands that had been their 
father's; and to his "mother, Rachel Horton," the homestead 
during her widowhood. Feb. 18, 1711-12, he was recorded as 


Io6 Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. [April, 

Ensign, and drew land in Will's Purchase. April 2, 17 13, he was 
chosen a surveyor of Rye. April 5, 1713, he and others sold 60 
acres in Will's Purchase. May 11, 1713, he sold land in White- 
fields. Nov. 16, 1713, as one of the White Plains proprietors, he 
laid out land there. April 8, 17 14, he was given land east of the 
Colony line. Feb. n, 1714-15, he was chosen one of several to 
lay out White Plains land. April 1, 1715, he was chosen an 
assessor of Rye. June 6, 17 16, he, of Rye, gentleman, sold his 
" brother-in-law, Daniel Purdy," 4 acres of meadow in Rye. Dec. 
1. 1 7 19, he, of Rye, gentleman, gave his brothers, Jonathan and 
Caleb, 25 acres each in Rye. Feb. 9, 1719-20, he and others, who 
laid out White Plains lands, were given lands there for their ser- 
vices. July 21, 1720, he sold land in Rye, to which Judith Hor- 
ton, as his "present wife," released all claim on Nov. 8, 1726. 
April 3, 1722, he was chosen assessor of Rye. Jan. 18, 1722-3, he 
was one of the patentees of the White Plains Purchase who 
deeded to their associates, Jan. 31, 1722-3, he and wife, Judith, 
sold White Plains land. In 1723 and 1726, he was chosen a 
surveyor of Rye. Jan. 19, 1726-7, as eldest son of Capt. John* 
Horton, deceased, he joined his brother, Daniel, in selling one 
and a half acres of salt meadow on Budd's Neck, which he had 
released (May 2, 1711) to Daniel. April 4, 1727, he was appointed 
one of a committee to repair the meeting house. Sept. 25, 1727, 
he and Samuel Purdy, executors of the will of Isaac Donham,- 
sold land in Will's Purchase. April 1, 1729, he was elected a 
trustee of Rye,. April 24, 1733, his uncle, David, 3 quit-claimed 
to him all land in White Plains, which had formerly been in pos- 
session of the latter's brother, Samuel.' May 6, 1736, as John 
Horton, Sr., of Rye, gentleman, he and wife, Judith, sold land in 
Rye, possession of which was given March 4, 1736-7, with John 
Horton, Jr., as a witness. Feb. 27, 1737-8, he of Rye, gentleman, 
sold to John Budd all his right in the White Plains Purchase, 
"as it did come and descend to me from my uncle, Samuel Hor- 
ton." He removed to White Plains, and on April 3, 1739, was 
chosen an assessor. He was living there on Nov. 27, 1740, when 
his son, John,' of Rye, (as John Horton, Jr., eldest son of John), 
quit-claimed to John Budd all right that grantor had to land 
where " my said father now dwells in ye White Plains," which 
the father had formerly conveyed to Budd. The time when 
John ' died has not been discovered, but it was prior to Jan. 3, 
1741-2, on which date John Budd sold the land conveye&Jxt him 
on Feb. 27, 1737-8, by "John Horton, late of White Plainly de- 
ceased.". The time of the death of his wife, Judith, has not been 
found. John* Horton certainly had issue: 
1. John.' 
The deed of John,' in which he calls himself the eldest son of 
John,* shows that the latter had other children; but investigation 
has not yet gone far enough to determine their names with cer- 
tainty. Mr. Baird mentions but one child, John, Jr. 

10. Daniel 4 Horton, son of Capt. John,' was unquestionably 
the grantee in the deed from his brother, John,* dated May 2, 

1905.] Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York, 107 

1 7 n. This is the earliest mention of a Daniel Horton that has 
been seen of record, and he was under age at the time. By this 
deed was quit-claimed to him his father's right in the White 
Plains Purchase, and one and a half acres of salt meadow near 
Rattlesnake Brook. The next earliest reference to a Daniel 
is as one of the grantees of said Purchase, who were given rights 
therein by the patentees, on Jan. 18, 1722-3. It seems very cer- 
tain that he was Daniel* (John'). Another item which unques- 
tionably relates to Daniel * (John '), is a deed of John * Horton 
and Daniel Horton, both of Rye, (stated therein to be sons of 
Capt. John, deceased), who sold one and a half acres of salt 
meadow in Budd's Neck, Jan. 19, 1726-7, which John* had for- 
merly released (May 2, 1711) to his said brother. Other ref- 
erences to a Daniel Horton are as follows: 

Nov. 18, 1723, his ear-mark was entered on Rye records. 
Nov. n, 1725, a highway was laid out in Westchester Co., be- 
ginning at the road leading from White Plains to East Chester, 
by the corner of James Travis' lot, and extending between said 
lot and Moses Knapp's lot "until it comes to Mamaroneck River, 
where the bridge now crosses," and passing by the houses of 
Jonathan Lynch, Isaac Covert, Jonathan Purdy, Daniel Horton 
and Caleb Horton. May 4, 1726, Daniel Horton of Rye, bought 
40 acres in White Plains, bounded west by his own land. April 
2I » 1733, Daniel, of Rye, yeoman, sold 60 acres in White Plains, 
bounded partially by his own land. In April, 1737, Daniel Hor- 
ton was chosen a surveyor of roads in White Plains, as shown by 
the records of that town. March 12, 1737-8, Daniel Horton and 
Silvanus Palmer, of Westchester Co.. held papers relating to 
White Plains land owned by George Dexter. May 1, 1739, Philip 
Verplanck, Esq., and wife, of the Manor of Cortlandt, leased to 
Daniel Horton during the lifetime of the said Daniel and that of 
his son, Stephen, of the same, a farm of 125 acres, — being lot No. 
6, which was a part of South lot No. 2, in that Manor. (This 
farm was within the present town of Yorktown, and was pur- 
chased by said Stephen Horton, April 18, 1794, of said Verplanck. 
It was devised by Stephen to his son, Caleb Horton, and passed 
to the latter's son, Jacob; and a part of it was sold by Jacob's 
executor to Hickson Covert in 1867.) Dec. 10, 1741, Daniel Hor- 
ton, of Cortlandt Manor, yeoman, sold White Plains land, laid 
out to him in the right of John Merritt, in the fifth and last 

From this group of items, it seems probable that Daniel Hor- 
ton of Rye, went to White Plains, and thence to Cortlandt Manor. 
Do these items relate to Daniel,* unquestionable son of Capt. 
John,* or to Daniel,' the alleged son of David ? * Was there 
really more than one Daniel Horton in the fourth generation, in 
Westchester Co.? 

The Daniel Horton of Cortlandt Manor, who was a party to 
the lease of a farm there in 1739, was born April 23, 1692, died 
Dec. 10, 1777, and married Hester Lane, born May 24, 1704, and 
died April 18, 1769, according to the family records. Bible 
entries, together with a statement of a granddaughter of this 

I08 Early Hortons of Westckester Co., New York. [April, 

couple, &c, show that Daniel and Hester (Lane) Horton had the 
following issue: 

i^JDaniel,' m. Phebe Lee, sister of Judge Elijah. ±^- 

ii. Elizabeth, m. Wright. 

iii. Stephen, b. April 30, 1731; m: (1) Sarah Owen; m. (2)

iv. Rachel, m. Daniel Wright, 
v. Esther, m. Simon Wright, 
vi. Phebe, m. David Knapp. 

vii. William, b. Jan. 10, 1743; m. Elizabeth Covert, dau. of 
Elisha, of Cortlandt Manor, and removed to Colches- 
ter, Delaware Co., N. Y. 
viii. Millicent, m. Joseph Owen, Sr. 
The Hortoti Genealogy assigns these children to Daniel, 4 son 
of David;* but Mr. Baird states that, according to Mr. Bolton, 
Daniel ' (David 8 ) had issue: Stephen, Daniel, Samuel, George W., 
Elisha C, Anne, wife of Samuel Crawford, and Margaret; while 
all but one of this group, the genealogy assigns to Daniel * 
(Daniel,* David '). It is quite true that a Daniel Horton, of White 
Plains, had the issue just named, as shown by his will, dated Nov. 
30, and proved Dec. 22, 1807; but there is excellent proof that 
this testator was Daniel' (David,* David'). 

Who were the parents of Daniel Horton, of Cortlandt Manor 
(later Yorktown), born April 23, 1692, and died Dec. 10, 1777? -» 

11. Jonathan* Horton, son of Cap*t. John,' was under age on 
May 2, 171 1, when his brother, John,' quit-claimed to him land in 
the Pondfield. Dec. 1, 1719, he, of Rye, had a gift of 25 acres 
there from his brother, John.* Jan. 18, 1722-3, he was very 
probably one of the grantees from the patentees of the White 
Plains Purchase to their associates. Jan. 2, 1724-5, he, of Rye, 
and his brother, Caleb,' 77 acres in this Purchase. This last item 
seems to make it quite certain that this Jonathan was the first of 
the name mentioned in the said deed of 1722-3, as it has not 
been seen that he acquired White Plains land except by that 

As has been shown under Jonathan ' (Joseph 2 ), there were 
two Jonathans of the fourth generation, in Westchester Co., by 
the end of the year 1722. It is difficult, therefore, to determine 
to which of them the items below relate. 

April 18, 1729, some Jonathan's land in White Plains was men- 
tioned as a bound. Aug. 23, 1734, Jonathan, of Rye, cordwainer, 
and wife, Abigail, sold land in Budd's Neck. April 12, 1735, the 
ear-mark of a Jonathan was entered in Rye. Oct. 12, 1739, a 
Jonathan had a right in the ferry from Rye to Oyster Bay. 
April 7, 1 741, a Jonathan was chosen overseer of highways in 
Rye; and April 6, 1742, one was chosen for the same office for 
Budd's Neck. June 9, 1752, Jonathan, of Budd's Neck, yeoman, 
bought 70 acres there. March 7, 1755, one of the name, of Rye, 
yeoman, bought land in Rye, bounded by land "that came by 
his father." Feb. 10, 1760, Jonathan, of Rye, yeoman, and wife, 
Sarah, sold 139 acres in Budd's Neck. The will of some Jonathan, 

1905. J Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. 109 

of Rye, dated Jan. 16, and proved April 29, 1760, names wife, 
Sarah; sons Jonathan and Daniel; and daughters, Johannah, 
wife of Thomas Robinson, and Sarah (under age). 

Mr. Baird made Jonathan, the cordwainer of ^34, a son of 
John, 3 and said that it was he who sold the 139 acres in Budd's 
Nyck, in 1760; and that he died a year or two later, leaving sons, 
Jonathan and James. If Mr. Baird were correct, then the cord- 
wainer had wives, Abigail and Sarah; and a son, James, not 
mentioned in the above will. (Oct. 23, 1760, James Horton, son 
of Jonathan and Abigail [she deceased], of Mamaroneck, mar- 
ried Sarah Hunt, daughter of Caleb [deceased] and Sarah, of 
Westchester). Some Jonathan* Horton had issue: 
i. Jonathan.' 
ii. Daniel. 

iii. Johanna, m. Thomas Robinson, 
iv. Sarah (underage in 1760). 
Some Jonathan' and Abigail had issue: 

i. James,' m. Oct. 23, 1760, Sarah Hunt; d. 1775, leaving 
a will, dated Jan. 14, 1771, and proved Sept. 12, 1775, 
which indicates that his father also had: 

ii. William, m. , and had James.' 

iii. (Daughter), m. Merrit, and had James. 

iv. (Daughter), m. Carpenter, and had Joseph. 

v. Hannah, m. John Hosier, and had John. 

12. Caleb* Horton, son of Capt. John,' was born in 1697 or 
1698, as he died Aug. 24, 1770, aged 72 years, according to his 
gravestone. He has first been seen of record May 2, 171 1, when 
his brother, John,* quit-claimed to him land in the Pondfield, at 
which time he was under age. Nov. 19, 1718, he, of Rye, bach- 
elor, bought one acre of salt meadow there. Dec. 1, 17 19, he had 
a gift of 25 acres in Rye from his brother, John.* Feb. 15, 1 720-1, 
he bought of John Hawkins a right in the White Plains Purchase. 
Jan. 18, 1722-3, he was one of the grantees or said Purchase from 
the patentees thereof. April 23, 1723, he, of White Plains, bought 
of Thomas Baxter and wife, a right in the White Plains Purchase. 
March 21, 1723-4, his ear-mark was entered in Rye. Jan. 2, 
1724-5, he of Rye, bought 77 acres in White Plains, of his 
brother, Jonathan. April 6, 1725, he was chosen a surveyor of 
the White Plains Purchase. Nov. n, 1725, a highway was laid 
out, which ran by his house. April 14, 1726, he and another, of 
Rye, sold land in White Plains. June 25, 1726, he, of White 
Plains, sold 9 acres there. In 1736, he was chosen an assessor in 
White Plains. March 17, 1 740-1, he bought 25 acres there. In 
1747 and 1750, he was elected an assessor; and in 1759 and 1764, 
was chosen an overseer of roads. He died Aug. 24, 1770, leaving 
a will dated March 26, and proved Aug. 29, 1770, which mentioned 
wife Hannah; grandsons Caleb Horton and Caleb Barker; and 
the children named below (except Caleb, who was dead and was 
possibly the eldest child), who are given in the order in which 
they appear in the will. Caleb* Horton had issue: 

i. Caleb,' of Cortlandt Manor, d. 1758, leaving a son 

I IO Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. [April, 

ii. Sarah, 
iii. Anne, 
iv. Hannah,

vi. Elizabeth, 
vii. Gilbert, of White Plains, d. 1784 or '85; had Judith," 

wife of John Arden of New York, 
viii. Underhill. 
ix. Isaac. 
x. Abraham. 
As the will of Caleb,' dated April 11, and proved May 2, 1758, 
mentioned "my father's son, Isaac Horton," it suggests that Caleb' 
had two wives. The first wife may have been Martha, daughter 
of Daniel Turner of Westchester, as the will of the latter's son, 
Daniel, names "my sister Martha's son, Caleb Horton." His 
wife Hannah died Feb. 10, 1773, aged 56 years, 3 months, 25 days; 
and March 19, following, Gilbert * Horton of White Plains gave 
bond as administrator of the estate of his mother, Hannah Hor- 
ton, late of White Plains, widow. It seems possible that she was 
a daughter of Abraham Underhill, whose will, dated Aug. 18, 
and proved Nov. 5, 1750, mentioned a daughter, Hannah, and ap- 
pointed Caleb Horton an executor. (Caleb named a son, Under- 
hill Horton.) Some have thought that she was a daughter of 
John * Budd. Mr. Baird marries Hannah Budd to Hachaliah 
Purdy, and her sister Mary to a Caleb Horton (possibly Caleb,' 
whose will mentioned " my wife's sister, Sarah Budd." He also 
marries Hachaliah Purdy to Sarah Budd, daughter of Elisha. 1 
Caleb 4 was one of the Hortons that Mr. Baird could not cer- 
tainly affiliate. 

13. James* Horton, son of Capt. John,* first appears of record 
May 2, 17 1 1, when his brother, John, 4 quit-claimed to him land 
that their father bought of John Conklin, at which time he was 
under age. May 28, 1720, his ear-mark was entered in Rye. 
April 4, 1738, he was chosen an overseer of highways; and April 
1, 1740, was elected an assessor. May 17, 1750, the land of 
James, Sr., in Rye and near Mamaroneck Harbor, was mentioned 
as a bound. In 1753 and 1754, he was chosen an overseer of 
highways for Budd's Neck. Feb. 10, 1760, the land of Major 
James Horton in Budd's Neck was mentioned as abound; and in 
1768, he had land in Little Neck. June 29, 1764, James, Esq., of 
Rye, gave his son, James, Jr., of Mamaroneck, land in Budd's 
Neck. April 3, 1770, Major Horton was chosen overseer of high- 
ways for Budd's Neck. In 1771 and 1772, James, Esq., was ap- 
pointed to take care of the estates of intestates. Sept. 10, 1776, 
James Horton of Rye Neck, deeded land to his son, Gill Budd 
Horton. The time of his death has not been discovered. Pos- 
sibly some of these items relate to his son, or to James * (Jon- 
athan 4 ). James 4 Horton had issue: 
i. James,' of Mamaroneck. 

ii. Gill Budd, of Rye and Mamaroneck. 

iii. Elijah, m. Amy ; d. 1773. 

1905.] Early Hortons of Westchester Co., New York. I I I 

The order of these children's births is uncertain. That 
James, Jr., of Mamaroneck, was a son of James' is proved by the 
deed above mentioned. March 25, 1771, Gill Budd and Elijah 
Horton of Rye, sons of James, sold land to James, Jr., of Mamar- 
oneck. July 8, 1773, Amy Horton, widow of Elijah, of Mamar- 
oneck, petitioned that his brother, Gill Budd Horton, be appoint- 
ed administrator of Elijah's estate. Aug. 9, 1773, James Horton, 
of Rye, petitioned that the estate of his son Elijah be adminis- 
tered by the latter's brother, Gill Budd. Aug. 13, 1773, Gill Budd 
Horton of Mamaroneck, gave bond as administrator of his 
brother Elijah's estate. 

14. Joseph* Horton has been placed as a son of Joseph,' 
though no deed from father to son has been seen. By March 11, 
1 7 14-15, there was a Joseph, Jr., in Rye, for on that date the ear- 
mark of Joseph, Sr., was registered. In the deed of Jan. 18, 
1722-3, from the patentees of the White Plains Purchase to their 
associates, the name, Joseph Horton, Jr., immediately follows 
Joseph Horton, Sr., among the grantees, which strongly suggests 
that they were father and son. April 23, 1723, Joseph, Jr., was 
chosen constable of Rye. Mr. Baird has given us Joseph ' 
(Joseph 5 ) of Rye in 1722, "called, Junior, in 1723;" Joseph' 
(John') of Rye, in 1722, who bought land "from his brother, 
Jonathan," in 1715; and Joseph* (David') of White Plains, in 
1732. No certain evidence has been seen that there were more 
than two Josephs in this generation; or that one of the name re- 
sided in White Plains in 1732, though some Joseph's land there 
was mentioned as a bound in that year. Most probably these 
two Josephs were Joseph * (Joseph') and Joseph* (Jonathan *); 
and it is uncertain to which the items below refer. 

Aug. 14, 1725, the ear-mark of a Joseph was registered. 
April 2, 1734, a Joseph was chosen a surveyor of highways in 
Rye; and April 1, 1740, one was appointed overseer of highways. 
Jan. 3, 1740-1, Joseph, of Rye, bought of Parmenus Horton of 
Southold, the right of the latter's father, Benjamin, in the White 
Plains Purchase. March 8, 1 741-2, some Joseph's land in Budd's 
Neck was mentioned as a bound. Feb. 13, 1746-7, Joseph, of 
Rye, and wife Elizabeth, sold 50 acres in Budd's Neck, where he 
dwelt. April 2, 1751, a Joseph was chosen a fence-viewer in 
White Plains. May 4, 175 1, Joseph, of Westchester Co., bought 
land in Cortlandt Manor. The will of Joseph Horton of White 
Plains, dated Nov. 8, 1757 and proved April 4, 1758, mentioned 
the eight children below, who are named in the order of the will. 
Some Joseph * had issue: 

i. Bethiah.* 

ii. Ann. 
iii. Patience, 
iv. Mary, dead by 1757, leaving children. 

v. William, of Cortlandt Manor. 

vi. Joseph, of White Plains; m. Anna* , and had:

viii. Ambrose. 

15. Samuel 4 Horton, who has been placed as a probable son of 
Samuel," was of uncertain parentage, as far as record evidence 
shows. If he were the son of Samuel, 3 he seems to have died be- 
fore (or immediately after) his father, as the land of the latter 
descended to his nephew, John.* In the olden time, a man 
called "Junior" was sometimes so designated to distinguish him 
from an uncle having the same Christian name, and it is possible 
that Samuel ' was a son of David," who also lived in White 

Samuel * has not been found of record except as a signer to 
the petition of May 11, 1727, to the Governor of Connecticut 
Colony, as to collecting subscriptions for building a meeting 
house in Rye, unless he were the " Samuel Haarten," a bachelor, 
born in Rye and living in White Plains, who married Dec. 6, 
1729, Helena Duyser, born in Philipsburgh, and living in White 
Plains, as entered on the records of the old Dutch Church of 
Sleepy Hollow. 

16. David* Horton, son of David,' first appears of record, June 
6, 1722, when he, of White Plains, was made guardian of William 
Kirk. May 13, 1723, his ear-mark was entered. March 5, 1725-6, 
he bought White Plains land of his father. May 11 and Oct. 6, 
1727, he signed petitions to the Governor of Connecticut Colony 
relative to building a meeting house in Rye. April 12, 1748, he 
sold White Plains land. In 1749 and 1752, he was chosen a fence- 
viewer in White Plains. Jan. 10, 1752, he and his wife, Bellicha, 
sold White Plains land. The date of his death, or that of his 
wife, has not been ascertained. His will, dated Jan. 9, 1775, and 
proved July 30, 1781, named wife Bellicha; granddaughter Mary 
Hosier; and the children given below, which are placed in the 
order in which they appear in the will. David' Horton had 

i. David.' 
ii. Rebecca. 

iii. William, m. Sarah , and had: Mary,' David, and 

iv. Thomas, of Croton Lake, 
v. Joseph, of Dutchess Co., had: Stephen,' Elijah, Joseph, 

John, and Samuel, 
vi. Daniel, d. Dec. 9, 1807, aged 63 years, 8 months, 26 
days; m. Anna (French?), and had: Stephen,' Sam- 
uel Pell, Daniel, George, Margaret, Anna,' and 
vii. John. 

As shown in the foregoing account, there are genealogical 
problems among the early Hortons of Westchester County, which 
are not solved by public records. It is hoped that those inter- 
ested in Horton ancestry will search family Bibles and papers,

and communicate the results, as well as make known any facts 
within their knowledge, that will determine such relationships as 
are now uncertain. 


Since this article was written, further search has developed 
the following items: 

Dow's History of Hampton, N. H, states that Barnabas Hor- 
ton was among the early settlers there, and was granted a house- 
lot in June, 1640. According to Dow's list, Barnabas was not one 
of those to whom shares in the common were granted Feb. 23, 
1645-6. Presumably, therefore, he had left Hampton before this 
date. 1 

Whitaker's History of Southold, L. I., asserts that the organ- " <: , - 
izing of the church on Oct. 21, 1640, did not take place in New 
Haven, but in Southold. He does not name Barnabas Horton as IS-i. -a-*-.-- 
among those who participated. >!..,~^- •- « ' 

In The Ancient Records of the Town of Ipswich (Mass.), 1634- 
1650, published in 1899, and alleged to have been copied from the 
original records, is found a deed by which Barnabas Horton, of 
Ipswich, baker, conveyed six acres of land there to Moses Pengry, 
of the same place, " the twelf day of the first month Anno Dom 
1641." It is probable that Barnabas had removed from Hampton 
to Ipswich. He is not found, however, among "The names of 
such as are Comoners in Ipswich, viz: that have a right in Com- 
onage there: the last day of the last month 1641." Matthias 
Curwin was also a resident of Ipswich. The Corwin Genealogy 
(1872) says: "The record at Ipswich notes that he emigrated 
thence to Long Island." The records of Southold show that one 
of Barnabas Horton's home-lots was bounded easterly by that of 
of Matthias Curwin, in Jan., 1653. 

In the deed of May 2, 1711, by which John 4 Horton quit- 
claimed to his brothers, Daniel, Jonathan, Caleb and James, cer- 
tain of their father's lands, it is clearly stated that the grantor 
and said grantees were all the sons of Capt. John, 5 then surviv- 
ing; and that the division of the estate was in accordance with 
their father's wishes. This deed proves that Joseph Horton of 
Rye, bachelor, who bought land of his brother, Jonathan, March 
2, 1714-15, was not a son of Capt. John. Benjamin, who was a 
witness in 17 12, is also excluded as a son of Capt. John. (Com- 
pare with what is said under 3. John, 7. Jonathan, 8. Benjamin, 
and 14. Joseph.) 

There is a typographical error in the name Sophia Jane, as 
wife of Joseph ' Horton. In the printed record of the baptism of 
her daughter, Jannetje, the mother's name appears as Sophia 
Jans. Seemingly she was a Dutch woman, and a daughter of 

Jan . By some, however, she is thought to have been a 

Sands. The witnesses to this baptism were Thomas Robinson 
and his wife, Hannah. 

Humphrey Horton, with the consent of his mother, Mary, and 
her then husband, George Copping, put himself an apprentice to 
Thomas Hunt, Jr., of West Farms, in 1693. In 1721, he, of West- 

114 New York Gleanings in England. [April, 

Chester, bought land there which was in the tenure of his 
"mother-in-law Mary Collier," widow of Edward. In 1729, he 
and wife Elizabeth sold land in Westchester. Who were the 
parents of Humphrey Horton ? 

Jonathan Paulding- Horton was born May 16, 1711, and died 
March 13, 1795, according to his gravestone. He had wife, Mar- 
garet, born Dec. 1, 1708, and died Nov. 14, 1787, according to her 
gravestone. He was of Mount Pleasant at death, and his will, 
dated Jan. 7, 1793, and proved March 18, 1795, named the follow- 
ing children: Caleb, Jonathan, Joseph, Margaret, Elizabeth and 
Susannah. Who were his parents?

By Winchester Fitch. 

In an old family record of a daughter of Rev. Benjamin 
Throope (Yale 1734), it is stated that he was the seventh child 
of Capt. William Throope, the third son of William Throope, 
whose father, " Lord Scroope of Scotland," in " one of the Scotch 
rebellions" fled to America and assumed the name of William 

Endeavoring to verify this statement, the writer ascertained 
that the Republican officials of the commonwealth were called 
" Lord " as a title of courtesy; that Col. Adrian Scroope, who 
fought in the Parliamentary Army was Governor of Bristol Castle 
in 1649, served on the High Court of Justice that condemned 
King Charles I, and signed his death-warrant; was commissioner 
to Scotland with General Monk in 1657, and sheriff of Lithgow 
and Sterling until the Restoration; when as an unrepentant 
regicide, he was excepted out of the Act of Indemnity, and ex- 
ecuted in 1660. It was subsequently learned that widely 
scattered descendants of William Throope, who was at Barn- 
stable, Mass., in 1666, and one of the original settlers in Bristol, 
R. I., in 1680, agreed in a tradition that this was the assumed 
name of a refugee, Col. Adrian Scroope, the regicide, of Worms- 
ley in Oxfordshire, or his son, who was in Hartford, Conn., in 
1665 and 1667, when he signed two different deeds and, as if to 
make evidence of his presence there, also the records of the 
same. (See Savage's Genealogical Dictionary.} 

Dr. Ezra Stiles, President of Yale, published in 1794, a history 
of Gen. Edward Whalley, Gen. William Goffe and Col. John 
Dixwell (who assumed the name of Davids), three of the King's 
heroic judges, who fled to America where their experiences are 
among the most romantic episodes of colonial history. Influenced 
by this Throope tradition and the current belief that Col. Scroope 
bad at one time been in Hartford, President Stiles included a 
sketch of him in this history, and failing to detect the discrepancy 

1905.] The Throope Fa?nily and the Scrope Tradition. I 1 9 

of dates, attempted to identify the signer of the deeds with the 
signer of the death-warrant by the similarity of the "auto- 
graphy." He was confirmed in this error by Secretary Willis, as 
he shows in his Literary Diary that Mr. Willis stated that 
Scroope, the regicide, was in Hartford, that he witnessed the 
said deeds, and was furnished money by the colony to enable him 
to return to England where he died. President Stiles was so 
convinced of the truth of these statements that he entrusted the 
publication of this book to Capt. William Throope, and gave the 
profits of the first edition to a child of the family born in that 
year, named after John Dixwell, while another born in 1784, 
was called George Scrope Throope. 

A significant coat-of-arms was assumed by the Throopes, 
which is given by Fairbarn as belonging to the Vaughans of 
Gloucester, the Nowells of Middlesex, &c. '"A naked arm grasp- 
ing a coiled serpent; all proper." Motto: Debita Facere (they 
did their duty). In this connection it is worthy of notice that 
the oldest son of William Throope was named Dan (in Hebrew 
Judge), which in association with " a coiled serpent," vividly 
recalls the prophecy of Jacob in Genesis XLIX, 16-19. The 
occurrence of the word " troop " in the last of these verses ren- 
ders it possible that this was intended as a cipher. Such biblical 
conceits would have been characteristic of the Throopes as well 
as of Col. Scroope who is said to have quoted freely from the 
Scriptures, like most of the Puritans of his day, while Rev. Ben- 
jamin Throope, grandson of William Throope, in a similar vein 
gave to the new settlement near Norwich, Conn., of which he 
was pastor (shepherd), the name Bozrah, meaning Sheepfold. 

The verses referred to are as follows: 

16. Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel. 

17. Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path 

that biteth the horses heels, so that his rider shall fall 

18. I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord. 

19. Gad, a troop shall overcome him, but he shall overcome 

at the last. 

The last is particularly striking as a reference to King 
Charles I, who was overcome, but who overcame at the last in 
the person of his son. 

The name Scrope was usually written with one o, but Col. 
Scroope of Wormsley often spelt it with two. Savage's reference 

to this mode of spelling 
as an argument against 
this tradition is there- 
fore erroneous. In fact 
the. use of the double o 
by Adrian Scroope of 
Hartford, strengthens the possibility that he was of the Worm- 
sley branch. A facsimile of his autograph is given herewith 
from Hartford Book of Possessions, p. 585, date 11 March, 1666-7. 
In the litigation concerning one of the English peerages of 
the Scropes it was brought out that one branch of the family

I 20 The Throope Family and the Scrope Tradition. [April, 

had passed over to the United States. (Article in London 
Quarterly Review, reprinted in Littell's Living Age, Vol. XV, 
fifth series, 1876, p. 707.) 

Simon Thomas Scrope, Esquire, of Danby, claimed the 
ancient Earldom of Wiltshire, created 1397. The suit was be- 
fore the House of Lords from 1859 to 1869, but was not success- 

Although President Stiles' proof fails, the facts indicate some 
basis for his belief, and Savage, in a very judicious manner, sums 
up this genealogical problem by saying in his Dictionary of 
Adrian Scroope of Hartford in 1665; "Curiosity to a high pitch 
naturally is felt on two points in this case — when did he come to 
our country and what did he do after he signed that rare name. 
Strong probability from union of such given name and sur- 
name arises that this man was son or near relative of the 
regicide." The Throope tradition is the only solution of this 
problem that has ever been offered, and widely scattered lines 
of descent from William Throope claim Col. Scroope as an ances- 
tor, as did Rev. Benjamin Throope, born in 17 12, of Bozrah, 
Conn.; Rev. George Throope, born 1724, of Johnstown, N. Y.; 
Hon. O. H. Fitch, born 1803, of Ashtabula, Ohio; Rev. Dan. 
Huntington, who speaks of this tradition in his Memories pub- 
lished in 1857; Rt. Rev. Frederick Dan. Huntington, Bishop of 
Central New York, who refers to it in his Centennial Address at 
Hadley; Rev. Dr. Edward Everett Hale, who mentions this de- 
scent in " Puritan Politics in England and New England;" and 
Hon. Enos Thompson Throop, eighth Governor of New York 
and Minister to the Court of Naples. 

Although this tradition has not been proven by English 
records, a study of Col. Scroope and his connections made by the 
writer and embodied in a monograph too long to be inserted 
here, shows that he had many American ties. A scion of the 
Barons of Bolton, his grandmother was aunt of George Ludlow 
of Virginia, and of Roger Ludlow of Connecticut, and great aunt 
of General Edmund Ludlow, the regicide. Born in 1600, he 
married Mary Waller, a sister of Edmund Waller, the poet, and of 
the first wife of Sir Peter Saltonstall, and first cousin of John 
Hampden, the patriot. Her grandfather, Griffith Hampden, was 
a brother of William Hampden, who married Elizabeth Crom- 
well, the aunt of Gen. Whalley (the regicide who came to Con- 
necticut) and of Oliver Cromwell, the Protector. 

There were Wallers both in Connecticut and Virginia who 
are said to be of the same family. 

Col. Scroope's brother-in-law, Sir Peter Saltonstall, son of Sir 
Richard Saltonstall, Lord Mayor of London, was a cousin of Sir 
Richard Saltonstall, founder of the great New England family 
of that name, whose son Richard sent ^50 to the regicides 
Whalley and Goffe in 1672. Anne Waller, a niece of Mrs. 
Scroope, married another Sir Richard Saltonstall. One Peter 
Saltonstall was for a time in New England. Rev. Nathaniel 
Cotton, a descendant of the Saltonstalls, was minister at Bristol, 
R. I. 

1905.] The Throope Family and the Scrope Tradition. 121 

Thomas Scrope, son of the regicide, re-established the family- 
fortunes as merchant in Bristol, England. His son John was 
Baron of the Exchequer of Scotland, Commissioner of the Ex- 
chequer of England, and M. P. Thomas Scrope's daughter 
Anne was the mother of the eighth earl of Westmoreland. (Col- 
lins 's Peerage. Foss's Judges!) 

Foster's Yorkshire Pedigrees names as children of Col. Scroope, 
sons Edmund, Robert and Thomas, and daughters Margaret, 
Ann, Mary and Margaret 2nd; but another, Elizabeth, born about 
1650, married Jonathan Blagrave, D. D., of Longworth, Co. 
Bucks, and her epitaph at Youghal, Ireland, is the subject of a 
notice in Nicholl's Topographer and Genealogist, Vol. 3, page 181. 
One of the regicides was Daniel Blagrave and the fact that 
Nathaniel Blagrave was with William Throope in Bristol, R. I., 
in 1691, is an interesting clue. 

Even after the accession of William and Mary, Gen. Ludlow 
was not safe in England and was obliged to return to Vevay, 
where the late Hon. William Walter Phelps erected a tablet to 
the memory of his kinsman, John Phelps, Clerk of the Regicide 
Court, who had relatives in Connecticut, akin to some of the 

Robert and Edmund Scroope, elder sons of the regicide, took 
their degrees at Oxford at the same convocation that made Fair- 
fax and Cromwell D. C. L. in 1649. Their last years are indefin- 
itely and incompletely reported. Foster says Edmund Scroope 
"died about 1658." It is a fair hypothesis to suggest that they 
may have sought safety just before the Restoration in Leyden 
in Holland, and that one of them, or a younger brother, Adrian, 
whose birth record has, like that of Elizabeth, escaped observa- 
tion, may yet be identified with the William Throope of Bristol, 
R. I., whose father, of the same name, according to one tradition, 
brought him to the vicinity of Plymouth in 1640 from Leyden, 
without leaving, however, any trace of his alleged presence in 
New England. 

The similar name of Thorpe has suggested to some a con- 
nection with that family, and with Francis Thorpe the regicide, 
but no facts have been found to warrant this. 

Pope's Pioneers of Massachusetts, gives John Thorp: wife 
Alice; taxed at Plymouth in 1632; died before 15 August, 1633. 

Davis' Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth, gives Alice, wife of 
John Thropp, died there in 1653; Joseph, wife Charity Throop, 
Rochester, Mass., 1749; and Zebulon Throop died at Plymouth in 
17 1 7. Savage names John Thropp, sergeant in Indian Wars. 
1675-6, and refers briefly to William Throop of Barnstable, dau. 
Mary, and son Thomas, but omits the other children. Pope 
makes no reference to William Throop. 

Peter Thropp was in New York before 1700; John, Robert, 
and Alexander Throup later; and Col. Robert Troup probably of 
this family, was prominent in the Revolution, an original mem- 
ber of the Cincinnati and friend of Alexander Hamilton. (Ap-

The writer has compiled a list of many of the name of Troup, 
Thropp, Thrupp, and Troupe as well as Throope, but no con- 
nection between any of them and William Throope can be 
shown, except that one of the descendants in Chicago writes that 
Adrian Scroope, when in peril of arrest after the restoration, 
sought refuge in the house of a man named Throop (Sergt. 
John ?), who, to protect him claimed him as a son.

William Throope, although no connection can be shown:

The Throope Family.* 

Whatever his pedigree may have been, William Throope was 
a Puritan who gained the respect of his fellow pioneers in mas- 
tering the hardships of primitive New England, and left a family 
that has shown marked character and ability. 

He was married in Barnstable, Mass., 4 May, 1666, to Mary 
Chapman, the daughter of Ralph Chapman of Marshfield, who 
came in the Elizabeth in 1635 from London, aged 20, described 
as- "shipcarpenter from Southwark in Surrey," and married 
Lydia Willis (Wells?), 23 Nov., 1642. Ralph Chapman's will is 
dated 28 Nov., 167 1. His daughter Sarah married William Nor- 
cutt. His daughter Mary was born 31 Oct., 1643, and as she 
signed a deed in 1698 and acted as executrix of her husband's 
will in 1704-5, she is undoubtedly the Mary Throope who died 
in Bristol, R. I., in June, 1732, aged 89. 

Her brother Isaac m. 2 Sept., 1678, Sarah, dau. of James 
Leonard and left descendants. Her brother, Ralph, Jr., settled 
at Newport, R. I., in 1680, where he m. (3) Mary, dau. of Gov- 
ernor Walter Clarke of Rhode Island, and left descendants. 
This family is not connected with the Chapmans of Saybrook. 
(See Newport Historical Magazine, Vol. I, Vol. II, p. 62; and 
Vol. Ill, pp. 135-7. 

William Throope was grand-juryman at Barnstable in 1680, 
and became one of the original settlers at Bristol, R. I., in that 
year. He was the first to travel overland with a team, transport- 
ing his family in an ox-cart. 

Bristol was formerly under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts, 
being originally a part of the old Plymouth Colony. The pro- 
prietors were Judge John Walley, Judge Nathaniel Byfield, both 
of whom resided in Bristol for many years, Nathaniel Oliver and 
Stephen Burton, all of Boston. Judge Walley, one of the Gov- 
ernor's Council was the son of the Rector of St. Mary's, White- 
chapel in London, and grandfather of Rev. Charles Chauncey, 
D. D., of Boston. Judge Byfield also of the Council was son of Rev. 
Richard Byfield, one of the Westminster Assembly of Divines, 
and nephew of Bishop Juxon. His first wife was a daughter of 
Capt. Thomas Clarke of Boston, and his second a daughter of 
Gov. Leverett. The first minister was Rev. Benjamin Wood- 
bridge, grandson of Gov. Thomas Dudley. The third pastor was 
a nephew of Mrs. Woodbridge, Rev. Nathaniel Cotton. He was 
the grandson of Rev. John Cotton and Nathaniel Saltonstall, a 
nephew of Gov. Gurdon Saltonstall and great-grandson of Rev. 
Nathaniel Ward, who wrote The Simple Cobbler of Agawam. 
The first settled pastor was Rev. Samuel Lee. The social and 
intellectual life of the new settlement was therefore of the high- 
est Puritan type, and Munro's History of Bristol and Rev. E. P. 
Lane's Historical Sketches of the First Congregational Church in 
Bristol, give an adequate picture of the life of the town in the 
days when William Throope lived there, a pioneer in the settle-

the weight of their character and influence to the foundations of 
our beloved Zion." 
- 1. William ' Throope was surveyor of highways in 1683; select- 
man, 1689; grand-juryman, 1690; and representative in 1691. 

He died in Bristol 4 Dec, 1704. His will is found in Bristol 
County, Mass., Records of Probate, Vol. 2, pages 125 and 126. 

" In the name and fear of God, Amen. I, William Throope, in 
Ye County of Bristol, yeoman, in the sixty-seventh year of my 
age and being under some indisposition of body," etc. 

There are bequests to three sons, Dan, John and William, two 
eldest daughters, Mary, wife of John Barney, and Elizabeth, wife 
of Jonathan Peck, " youngest son Thomas," " two younger daugh- 
ters Mercy and Lidiah," "loving and well-beloved wife Mary 
Throope sole executrix." He mentions "the remaining service 
of two Indian boys which may be unexpired at my decease." 

The will was marked signed 12 June, 1704, but the heirs state 
in a petition to the Probate Court that the foregoing instrument 
was drawn about five months before their father's death, and 
that although it was never signed, they are satisfied that it ex- 
presses the will of their father and they join in asking that it be 
admitted. This was signed by the heirs and widow and John 
Barney, Jonathan Peck and Eleazer Carey, 1 Jan., 1704-5, same

his dwelling house, barn and shop, lands, etc., at Bristol, to Wil- 
liam Throop and Ralph Chapman, 21 June, 1697, and on page 
226, that for 8:12 silver, Ralph Chapman, with consent of Mary, 
his now wife, conveyed his share of the purchase to " William

At Lebanon he was quartermaster in 1741; selectman from 
1750 to 1766; captain in 1751, and executor of James Danielson 
in 1753. (Records.) 

His grandson, Rev. Dan" Huntington in his Memo ries says of 
him: " He planted down on a beautiful eminence in Lebanon, 
about two miles east of the meeting-house. There was enough 
land for him and three sons, all of them having large families; 
comfortable domiciles; happy hearts. The number of slaves he 
brought with him from Bristol was two or three too many. In 
my childhood and youth I loved dearly to visit there and to have 
their visits in return at my own happy home. In their character 
embracing two or three generations, I have found the Throopes 
to be ingenuous, sincere, and open-hearted. They took every- 
thing easily. They were social, gregarious, fond of good humor, 
and good living. In Lebanon they were agriculturists, and 
formed very much a neighborhood by themselves. They were 
industrious but never, I believe, in a hurry about their business. 
The Throopes in their persons, so far as I can recollect, have 
been of a manly stature, well proportioned, comely, and naturally 
graceful in their bearing. I remember among them an unusually 
large proportion of handsome women, and good singers. One 
feature somewhat striking was a large, pleasant, prominent eye." 

A story is told of Dr. Payne who was greeted by one of the 
Throopes as he was walking past with an owl he had shot, with 
the question: "What rare bird have you there for your dinner?" 
to which he replied: " I don't know, but it has a Throope eye." 

Captain Dan Throope (3), and his wife Susanna owned the 
covenant, 18 Feb., 1739, at the Lebanon church. His estate was 
distributed under court order, dated 17 April, 1772, to widow

The epitaphs of Dan and Susanna in the oldest cemetery in 
Lebanon are as follows: 

" Here lies the body of Mrs. Susanna Throop, wife of Capt. 
Dan Throop, who died Nov. ye 20, 1754, in the 38th year of her 
age. Beauty and virtue are plants of nature's groth — these she 
estimated as gifts of real worth, but meekness, temperance, 
prudence, charity, these she still wears for they can never die." 

" Here lies the body of Capt. Dan Throop, a faithful relative, 
a worthy and useful member of society, a serious Professor of 
Religion, who was suddenly called from this transitory life to ye 
eternal world Dec. 27th, 1771 in ye 57th year of his age. Mors

children, as mentioned in a will, dated Dec. 13, 1729, were:

Samuel's age is fixed by an affidavit in 1730, in which he 
states that he was aged 60 years or thereabouts. No one seems 
to have been able to discover the maiden name of Anna, the 
wife. The name of Amos, the eldest son, is new in the Weeks 
line as we know it, but appears in some contemporary families,

notably the Mott, Willets, Wood, Dickinson and Dodge families. 
Its apparent popularity indicates an earlier source than within 
our ken. This generation of the family generally spelled the 
name Weeks, while those in Oyster Bay usually wrote it Weekes. 
I am persuaded in my own mind from observing the orthography 
in the Rhode Island records that " Wickes " is the original form 
with the same pronunciation, the i sounded as we now do the e. 
Samuel* was the son of Samuel' and Elizabeth, dau. of Henry 
Reddough or Reddocke, as he wrote it. The first is as one of his 
daughters wrote it and as this is the most difficult to write, I 
argue that she so wrote it because it was the correct way, and 
the father spelled it phonetically as a concession to customary 
colloquial usage. Samuel ' was bap. in the New Amsterdam 
Dutch Church in 1647, was a weaver and d. at Musketa Cove be- 
fore 1690. As there Were three other children bap. the same day 
with Samuel, it is very likely that he was five years old in 1647; 
perhaps more. Before his marriage he lived in Oyster Bay on 
the east side of South Street, and came to Matinecock about 1674, 
at which time he and brother Joseph, whose wife was Hannah 
Reddough, in the settlement of the estate of Henry Reddocke, 
bought the interest of the other heirs. Children, other than 
Samuel,' were Humphrey (named after Humphrey Clay), George, 

m. Mary ; Francis, m. Alice Postley; Philip, and James. 

Samuel ' was also a weaver. He was son of Francis ' Weeks, b. 
about 1616; d. about 1687. Will on record in Oyster Bay Town 
Clerk's office. Francis Weekes was at Salem, 1635, at Providence, 
1636, and when John Smith (Miller) was banished with Roger 
Williams, he asked to be allowed to take a boy named Francis 
Weekes with him to Providence. He went and joined the four- 
teen settlers and some time became Secretary of the Colony; re- 
moved to New York City, 1641; was at Gravesend, 1645; and in 
1657 was a townsman of Hempstead. Mrs. Weekes, 1658, was 
fined for attending Quaker meetings; at Oyster Bay, 1660. Wife 
Elizabeth, supposed to be 'dau. of Rev. Samuel Luther of Swan- 
sea, R. I., formerly of Luther Kelvedon-Hatch, Sussex, Eng. 
Note from N. E. Gen. Register, Jan. 17, 1623: Some Francis 
Weekes of Barnstable in Devonshire, Eng., proposes to the 
Council to establish a plantation in New England and pays ^350 
for the concession. Henry Reddocke's wife was Mabel, dau. of 
William Burrowes of Warwick, R. I., where H. R. was sometime 
Town Clerk. Came to Matinecock about 1666.*

The names of the "immortal eight" (they should be eight, I 
find, instead of nine) who cared for the prisoners, deserve 
further exploitation.

They are Mrs. Deborah Franklin, Mrs. Ann Mott, Mrs. Whittin, 
Miss Margaret Lent and Mrs. Penelope Hull, and Messrs.

The other name is found in this obituary from the Morning 
Courier and N. Y. Enquirer of Friday morning, July 17, 1840: 

" On Thursday morning, the 16th inst., at the residence of her 
late son, Jordan Mott, Mrs. Anne Coles, in her 02d year. 

Her friends and those of her late sons, Samuel, Jordan and 
Jacob C. Mott are respectfully invited to attend her funeral at 
the Foot of 51st Street, Hudson River, this afternoon at 5 o'clock. 
The deceased was sister of Jesse Coles, a Revolutionary Patriot 
in the confidence and secret service of General Washington and 
was one of the associates of Mines. Whittin and Todd, whose 
benevolence was actively exerted to relieve the necessities and 
sufferings of American prisoners confined by the British in the 
city of New York during the war."

Garret Clopper was the son of Henry and Margaret (Ketel- 
tas) Clopper, born in New York City, and baptized in the Dutch 
Reformed Church, Oct. 6, 1756. From a recommendation by 
John H. Cruger, dated July, 1777, at Long Island, shows him to 
have served his mercantile apprenticeship in his employ with 
great satisfaction to Mr. Cruger. 

He was an officer in the New York Volunteers and received a 
commission, dated Jan. 29, 1781, promoting him from ensign to 

In 1783, he joined the Loyalists and sailed from New York 
for New Brunswick, and settled in Fredericton, where he built a 
a handsome colonial residence on the corner of St. John and 
Brunswick Streets. He held many public offices of trust and 
responsibility, as follows: Deputy Postmaster, Pension Officer, 
Sergeant-at-Arms in Legislature, and by a commission, dated 
Oct. 5, 1816, was appointed Surrogate of York County, which 
position he held till his death, July 26, 1823. His son, Henry G. 
Clopper, who held a commission in the British Army, retired to 
succeed his father as Surrogate; he afterwards founded the Cen- 
tral Bank of New Brunswick and became its first president. 

Garret Clopper married Jan. 27, 1791, Penelope Miller, born 
in Milton, Mass., Feb. 19, 1764, who died in Fredericton, March 
9, 1833. She was a sister of Lieut. -Col. Samuel Miller of the 
United States Marines, who, in the war of 1812, commanded the 
moving batteries at St. Leonard's Creek, opposing the British 
approach upon Washington, and receiving a severe wound while 
exposed to the fiercest attacks of the British. He died in Phila- 
delphia in 1856.

! 9°5-] History of the Schermerhorn Fa?nily. 1 4 1 


By Wm. C. Schermerhorn, Esq. 

Contributed by Walter Lispenard Suydam. 

Origin of the Name. 

Whether the name of Schermerhorn (variously written "Scher- 
Hooren, " " Schermerhooren, " " Schermerhoren," " Schermer- 
hoorn " and " Schermerhorne ") was known in Holland as a fam- 
ily name or whether the first settler adopted as his surname, the 
name of his birth-place in Holland has not been definitely ascer- 
tained. The question could only be determined after careful re- 
search in Holland.* 

That it was a family name would seem from the facts, that 
from its first appearance upon the records, the name Jacob Jan- 
sen Schermerhoorn was written without the inevitable " van," 
that he is once mentioned as Jacob Jansen Schermerhoorn van 
Amsterdam and that unquestionably his father was living in 
Amsterdam in 1654. 

* "Schermer, properly Schermermeer also and usually called Schermeer," 
is a very considerable enclosure (by dykes) in that part of the North Holland 
which is called Bailiwick of the Nieuwburgen. It is bounded on the north by 
the Heer-Huige-moard ; on the west by the district of Alkmaar. Until 1631 
Schermermeer was, like many other sections of this part of Holland, which are 
now very fertile, an extensive sheet of water. 

Schermer Groot (Great), also called South Schermer, and Schermer Noord 
(North), are both in the same bailiwick, but outside the Schermermeer. 

Schermer Eiland (Island). This name is given to a certain district in 
which are situated, among others, the two well-known villages Ryp and Graft. 
When the three lakes, now drained, the Beemster, Schermer and Stermeer, 
were still large sheets of water, this was dry land. They gave it the name of 
" Island " because it could only be reached in boats. Now, although the lakes 
have been drained, it has still kept the old name. Schermer Eiland is 
bounded on the north and west by the Schermer ; on the east by the Beemster, 
and on the south by the Stermeer. 

Schermerhorn, a village situated in the above mentioned region and on 
the northeast comer of Schermer Eiland, from which position it has probably 
derived its name, for " Horn," " Hock " (peak or point) as is well known. In 
former days there was only a chapel there. After the decay of the church of 
Noord Schermer a handsome church was built in Schermerhorn, which is in 
every respect proportionate to the numbers and wealth of the inhabitants, for 
Schermerhorn was, at that time, a very prosperous place, the number of its 
inhabitants in the last century being estimated at 1,500 souls. Among 
them were twenty-five captains of large coasting vessels, which traded with 
the Baltic, France, Spain and other countries. Little by little the number has 
diminished, and finally they have all disappeared. This has impoverished the 
village a good deal. Another cause of its decline was a fire, which in 1609 
burned down sixty-three houses in three days' time. The village, however, has 
still retained some life and prosperity, owing to the passing to Alkmaar and 
back. All shipments from and to the Beemster are made through Schermer- 
horn, from which a wide canal runs, through the Schermer, to that city (Alk- 
maar). Vaderlandach Woordenbock, by Jacobus Kok, 35 Vols., Astor Library.

142 History of the Sckermerhorn Family. [April, 

On the other hand, it is certain that most of the first set- 
tlers in New Netherland used no surname, and probably had 
none. The patronymic was used in all cases and where that 
proved an insufficient distinction some personal peculiarity or 
the name of the trade, or occupation of the individual, or the 
place from which he came was added as a surname. 

Jacob Jansens were numerous, and if the one in question was 
really born in Waterland (in which district Schermerhorn is 
central), nothing is more probable than that he came to be dis- 
tinguished by the name of native place. 


The Coat-of-Arms, an illustration of which is 
printed here, has always been used by the New 
York branch of the family. It is said to have 
existed upon one of the stained glass windows 
of the church at Schermerhorn, in Holland, 
as lately as 1800, in which year a copy of it 
was brought out by Captain Joseph Mar- 
schalck, whose connection, by marriage, with 
the family will appear. 

Jacob Jansen Schermerhorn 
is said to have been born in 1662, in Waterland,* Holland. 
(Pearson's Contributions, Albany, p. 96; Schenectady, p. 158 — 
Gen. & Bio. Record, Vol. 2, p. 22.) 

By what authority this date is fixed, does not appear. If the 
conclusion heretofore reached, that he took his surname from 
the place of his birth, be accepted, then the statement that he 
was born in Waterland is undoubtedly correct, since the village 
of Schermerhorn occupies a central position in that district of 
North Holland. It is certain, however, that his father was living 
in 1654, in Amsterdam (Munsell's Collections, Vol. 3, pp. 196-198) 
while, he himself, seems to be referred to more than once as 
Jacob Jansen Van Amsterdam. (O'Callaghan's History, Vol. I, 

P- 43 6 ) 

He is said to have come out to Beverwyck (now Albany) in 
1636, in the ship Rensselaerwyck which sailed on the 1st of Oct., 
of that year (Gen. & Bio. Record, as above; O'Callaghan's His- 
tory, Vol. I, p. 436). It is scarcely probable, if the date of his 
birth is correctly stated above, that he came to this country at 
the early age of fourteen, alone, and he seems to have come 
alone, for with the exception of the brother not named but inci- 
dentally mentioned in connection with his arrest in 1648, no

water, especially its southern part ; therefore it is more particularly to that 
portion that the name is applied. Dictionnaire Geograpkigue du Rayume des 
Pays Bas, by M. Dewes Bruxelles, 1819.

trace of the arrival of any other member of his family has been 
found. It is more probable that he came out in 1643 (O'Callag- 
han's History, Vol. I, p. 441) and under the auspices of Kilian 
Van Rensselaer. 

His name is said to have been recorded as that of the twelfth 
male member of the Reformed Dutch Church in Beverwyck, 
which was organized by the Rev. Johannes Megalopensis in 1642, 
and built in the following year. 

He rapidly prospered as a Brewer and Indian Trader. In 
1648* he was arrested at Fort Orange (Albany) by Governor 
Stuyvesant's orders, upon the charge of obtaining arms and am- 
munition from the West India Company and selling them to the 

His brother (?) and his partner (Jacob Reynsen) were 

arrested at the same time. His books and papers were seized 
and himself and the others were removed as prisoners to Fort 
Amsterdam (New York) where they were arraigned. The chief 
evidence against them was their own letters and papers, and on 
these they were condemned to death(?); upon the representations 
of some leading citizens, this sentence was subsequently com- 
muted to banishment for five years, with confiscation of their 
property. Though the first part of the last sentence was finally 
revoked at the instance of the " Nine Men," the restoration of 
their property was refused. It remained confiscated. 

These proceedings against Schermerhorn formed subse- 
quently one of the grounds of complaint against Governor Stuy- 
vesant to the States General, in which it was charged that the 
Governor openly and avowedly committed the very same acts 
which he so vigorously condemned in others. (O'Callaghan's 
History 2, p. 62. Brodhead's History 1, p. 490. O'Callaghan's 
Documents, Vol. 1, pp. 312, 337, 345, 428, 501.) 

It is evident that Schermerhorn rapidly reconstructed his for- 
tune and suffered no loss of reputation after the difficulties in 
which he was involved. He married (within two or three years 
from the time of his release) Jannetje Segers, daughter f of Cor-

That they were not sentenced for smuggling, but for selling arms to the 
Indians, is shown in O'Callaghan's Docnments, Vol. I, p. 345. 

Can the brother here alluded to have been the Peter Schermerhorn men- 
tioned hereafter, who is said to have died at Rhinebeck in 1671 and to have 
had two brothers, John and Jacob? 

t It has been erroneously stated that he married Jane Egmont, or Eg- 
mond. That name does not appear in the Albany Records earlier than 1683. 

Cornells Segers Van Voorhoudt came to Beverwyck in 1642 and succeeded 
Vande Douch on the farm called " Welysburgh," on Castle Island. His wife 
was Bregje Jacobsen, who died in April, 1667. In 1663, she being then indis-

nelis Segerse Van Voorhondt (who came to Beverwyck from Hol- 
land in 1642. (O'Callaghan's History 1, p. 440.) On Nov. 9, 1652, 
and Oct. 25, 1653, he received patents or grants of lands in Bever- 
wyck. (O'Callaghan's History 2, p. 587 and 588.) On July 13, 1651, 
he executed with others bond for the entry of certain goods (O'Cal- 
laghan's Calendar, Part 1, p. 53 from Register of Provincial Sec- 
retary, p. 36) and became about the same time one of the " Com- 
missaries (Magistrates) of the jurisdiction of Beverwyck." 

While holding this position (Munsell's Collections 4, p. 225) in 
1654, he went to Holland (Munsell's Collections 3, pp. 196, 198) 
where his father was then living, in Amsterdam. Returning, he 
was again nominated on April 8, 1656, and appointed "Commis- 
sary" (Munsell's Collections 4, p. 240) and continued to fill that 
position under both the Dutch and English governments, until 
1675, if not longer (Munsell's Collections 3, pp. 12, 16, 28, 30, 33, 
35, 54, 55, 6 3, 7*. 7 2 . 108, 112, 116.) 

As a member of the Consistory of the Reformed Protestant 
Dutch Church of Albany, he audited the Deacon's accounts in 
1665; kept the accounts himself in 1666, and again audited them 
in 1671, 1672, 1685 and 1686 (Munsell's Collections 1, pp. 3, 26, 34, 
35, 46 and 47). 

In the summer of 1668, he made another and a brief visit to 
Holland (Munsell's Collections 4, 499; O'Callaghan's Documents 3, 
P- 178). 

Soon after the settlement of Schenectady (1662), he removed 
to that place* and died there in 1688, leaving a will f (dated 20 
May, 1688) which is recorded in the County Clerk's office in 
Albany and in which his children, named below, are mentioned. 

His estate was large, for the times, amounting to 56,882 
guilders (about $23,000). He owned, at his death, real estate in 
Albany and Schenectady. He had also a farm at Schodack, to 
which his son Jacob removed. Besides personal property to a 
large amount in this country, he had funds at interest in Hol- 
land. (O'Callaghan's History 2, p. 62 note.) Children of Jacob 
Jansen Schermerhorn:

by Jannetje Cornelia, wife offacob Schermerhorn, on 23d June, 1676, in O'Cal- 
laghan's Calendar, part 2, p. 47. 

Perhaps an explanation of the descrepancy may be found in the marriage 
of Seger Coru Van Egmondt of New Albany, which appears in the records of 
the Reformed Dutch Church in New York, under date 27th May, 1686. (Gen. 
&* Bio. Record, Vol. 8, p. 36). Voorkout is a small place, a few miles north of 
Lyden on the road to Haarlem. Egmond is at about the same distance south 
and west from Alkmaar. 

* His removal to Schenectady does not seem to have interfered with the 
regular discharge of the various duties in Albany. 

t His will is recorded in New York, in the Surrogate's office, in Liber 
10, at p. 174.

Symon Jacobse Schermerhorn, 
the second son of Jacob Jansen Schermerhorn, was born in Al- 
bany in 1658. He married (about 1683) Willempie Viele, a daugh- 
ter of Arnout Cornelise Viele,* widely known in those days as 
an Indian interpreter. Whether he (Symon Jacobse Schermer- 
horn) removed to Schenectady with his father or later, whether 
before or after his marriage, is uncertain. Two of his children, 
however, were baptized in Albany, viz: Johannes on July 23, 
16S4, and Arnout on Nov. 7, 1686. (Pearson's Cotitributions, 
Albany, p. 96.) 

He was certainly a resident of Schenectady in 1690, for on 
Feb. 9 of that year, at 5 a. m., he reached Albany with the first 
tidings of the capture of, and massacre at the former place, by 
the French and Indians. He had escaped, with difficulty, his 
horse being wounded and himself shot through the thigh. 

In the list of killed appear the names of his son Johannes, of 
three of his negroes, of Arnout, f the son of Arnout Cornells 
Viele, the interpreter; and of Mary Viele, the latter two being no 
doubt, the brother and sister of Symon Schermerhorn's wife 
(O'Callaghan's Documentary History, Vol. 1, pp. 188, 191,302, 306.) 

In 1691,1 he removed to New York, and seems to have be- 
come owner or commander of some craft navigating the Hudson 
River,§ out of which simple beginning, doubtless, grew that 

* Arnout Cornelise Viele, "a good, and faithful interpreter," held in 
"great esteem by the Indians," was presented by the Mohawks, in 1683, with a 
tract of land above Schenectady. His name occurs very frequently in docu- 
ments relating to transactions with the Indians. (Pearson's Contributions, 
Albany, p. 142; Schenectady, p. 271).

three years. 

% On 4th Sept., 1691, Willemje Schermerhorn, wife of Simon Schermer- 
horn, joined the Dutch Church in New York, by letter of attestation from the 
church at Albany. 

§ Under date 23rd June, 1693, is found a certificate that Simon Scher- 
merhorn has transported soldiers from New York to Albany. (O'Callaghan's

fondness for a mariner's life, and all that concerns it, which was 
so marked a trait in many of his descendants. 

He died in New York about 1696, leaving a widow; one son, 
Arnout; and probably the two daughters named below. On 
June 20, 1699, the widow married Livinus Winne, and becoming 
a widow a second time, married on June 19, 1709, Johannes Van 
Hoosen. (Pearson's Contributions, Albany, pp. 127 and 152.)

the second son of Symon Jacobse Schermerhorn, was baptized in 
Albany, Nov. 7, 1686; died at New York, Dec. 2, 1749." (Middle 
Dutch Church Records.) Although his parents must then have 
been residents of Schenectady. How he and his mother escaped 
the massacre at that place in 1690, when his elder brother Johan- 
nes was killed, does not appear. Coming, with his parents, to 
New York in 1691, he must have adopted in early life his father's 
calling, being described in all records, in which his name is 
found as a mariner. He married (about 1710) Marytje (Maria or 
Mary) Beekman, daughter of Johannes Beekman of New York.* 

His life must have been an active one (see Conveyances in 
Register's office, Liber 31, pp. 141, 160, 162, 183, 197, 432, and 433, 
and Liber 32, p. 311, and Liber 33, p. 519. 

On April 21, 1726, April 3, 1729, and Feb. 10, 1730, heobtained 
by purchase from his father-in-law above named, three parcels 
of land, or water lots on the south side of Queen (now Pearl) 
Street, between Beekman and Fulton Streets, as they have since 
been opened and extended. (Conveyances, Liber 31, pp. 66, 279, 

Upon a part of this land he built a wharf, which, upon James 
Lyne's Mapf of New York in 1728, is laid down as Schermer- 
horn's Wharf. Adjoining it on the east appears " Cannon's 
Wharf." Upon these lands (or upon the " upland " portions of 
them) Johannes Beekman, Arnout Schermerhorn, and John 
Cannon had residences or no doubt places of business. Their 
wharves extended towards, if not over, the present site of Ful-

ton Market. Out of the associations of neighbors probably grew 
marriage between children of Schermerhorn and Cannon men- 
tioned below. 

Arnout Schermerhorn seems, not long after the date of these 
purchases, to have become embarrassed, judging from certain 
advertisements relating to a proposed (and probably forced) sale 
of the same property which appeared in the New York Gazette of 
March 18, 1733, and in the New York Weekly Journal of Aug. 26, 
1734- These apparent difficulties may have grown out of his 
frequent absences in the pursuit of his calling, or of undertakings 
elsewhere, for on Jan. 21, 1733, he executed (in Charleston, S. C.) 
a full power of attorney to his wife Mary, in which he is de- 
scribed as "late of the City of New York, but now of Charles 
Town in the Province of South Carolina," and on April 21, 1738, 
a similar power to her in which he is described as " of Charles- 
ton, S. C, Shop-Keeper." The business in which he was there 
engaged was probably that of a Ship Chandler, afterwards main- 
tained in New York by his descendants, with intimate relations 
with Charleston. 

It may be concluded that he (like his son John) was owner or 
Captain of a vessel trading between New York and Charleston 
with established business at each end of the line. 

Whatever may have been the origin, or the issue of these dif- 
ficulties, the result was certainly not the loss of the property, 
since by successive water-grants his descendants acquired, and 
still hold, lands on either side of Fulton Market, which they 
could not have so acquired had their ancestor parted with the up- 
land.* He died in New York, Dec. 2, 1749. (Records Middle

148 Obituary. [April, 


We are in full sympathy with the endeavor to establish by act of Congress 
a United States Historical Commission which shall do for the history of this 
country what similar commissions have accomplished for other countries. 
This movement, which has been initiated by our esteemed countryman, Loth- 
rop Withington, Esq., of London, where for nearly thirty years he has been 
engaged in searching European archives for records bearing upon American 
affairs, proposes to establish by act of Congress a commission composed of 
some of our leading historical students under whose direction a modest annual 
appropriation shall be used for the collection and publication of documents 
bearing upon American history which may be found by careful search in the 
archives of the mother countries. We understand that Senator Lodge of Mas- 
sachusetts, who is heartily in favor of the measure, at the last session of Con- 
gress introduced a bill for the creation of such a commission with an annual 
appropriation of fifty thousand dollars for its maintenance; that this bill was 
referred to the library committee, and that the whole movement halts at this 

Efforts to secure the action of our government in the prosecution of histor- 
ical research should not be abandoned. Other countries have recognized it to 
be their duty to encourage the study of their own history by the institution of 
commissions for this purpose, and our country should not be wanting in this 
good work. Its history is too interesting, too important, to be left wholly to 
individual effort. England has had its Record Commission since 1800; France 
also has its Historical Commission and for nearly a century has been calendar- 
ing its archives; Holland, Italy and Spain have each done more for historical 
study than the United States. Even the Dominion of Canada has done more 
for American history than our own government, having printed full abstracts 
of the two hundred volumes of "The Haldimand Papers" in the British Mus- 
eum, which form the only full and authentic record of our American Revolu- 
tion. It is unpleasant to reflect that the United States, with all its wealth and 
enlightenment, except for a small support to the Peter Force documents, the 
Madison memoirs and certain war records, has done practically nothing for 
the study of its own history. What has been done in this field has been ac- 
complished by private individuals and a few of the States. These, however, 
have been hampered in their research for want of the sanction of governmental 
authority. This inestimable boon of a governmental agency in dealing with 
the archives of other governments, without which it is almost impossible to 
obtain access to such records as are most coveted, our historical students 
have never possessed. 

It seems to us high time for the United States, through a historical com- 
mission of its own appointment, to make a definite attempt to collect in Great 
Britain, in the Low Countries, in France, in Italy and in Spain such documents 
as have a bearing upon American history, and to publish the same in various 
series similar to the admirable issues of the British and French authorities. 


Reid, Alexander John, a member of the N. Y. Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society for ten years, died at his home in Brooklyn, Feb. 13, 1905. 
He was born May 29, 1844, on the old Reid homestead, in the town of Argyle, 
Washington Co., N. Y., which had been in the hands of the family since the 
first member of the family settled it about 1764. 

He was the son of David P. Reid and Elizabeth McFadden. She was the 
daughter of James McFadden, whose family was nearly related to and came 
over in the Scotch-Irish Colony with the Rev. Mr. Mairs from County Cavan, 
Ireland. His grandparents were Alexander Reid, born Jan. 17, 1752, died 
June 6, 1853, and Eunice Campbell, born March 9, 1762, died Oct. 12, 1848. 
This Alexander Reid was born in Rockland County, where his father, John 

Thomas Grier Evans, late President of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, died at his home in 
New Brighton, Staten Island, N. Y., on Tuesday, March 28th, 
1005, aged fifty-two years. 

Ever since his election to this Society in 1884 Mr. Evans 

had been one of its most active and distinguished members 

and had ably and faithfully filled almost every office in its 

gift. His death is an irreparable loss to the Society. He 

was formerly Editor of the Record and afterward until his 

death a member of the Publication Committee. To his 

learning, ability and untiring efforts this Magazine owes 

much of its success and influence.

Reid, and the Argyle Colonists, sojourned for some years until they were able 
to secure confirmation of their grant of land in Washington County. He came 
to Washington County when he was twelve years old. Eunice Campbell was 
the only daughter of William Campbell and Catherine Kennedy. She was 
born in Halifax, where her father married after his discharge from the 77th 
Regiment Highlanders, in which he served seven years. Alexander Reid, it is 
said, inclined in his sympathies to the Colonials, although many of the Argyle 
Highlanders did not. His great-grandparents, John Reid, born in Islay, Scot- 
land, and Margaret Hyman, came over with the Argyle Colonists. 

Alexander J. Reid was educated at the Argyle Academy, and at the break- 
ing out of the War of the Rebellion enlisted in the 44th New York Volunteers, 
when but seventeen years of age. He was wounded at the Battle of Gettys- 
burg, July 2, 1863, but remained in the service until Nov. 20, 1865, when he was 
discharged at Albany, N. Y. 

After the war he taught school for a while in Washington County. He 
came to New York City in 1866 to take a position with a commercial house. 
In 1894 he entered the customs service, where he remained continuously until 
the time of his death. 

Mr. Reid, though extremely modest and unassuming, possessed a very 
high order of intellectual ability, and his scholarly attainments and accurate 
knowledge gave him high rank among his associates and won for him the ad- 
miration and respect of all. He retained the characteristics of his race in a 
marked degree. The same love of liberty which induced his Scotch ancestors 
to migrate to this land of the free moved him to offer his young life in defence 
of freedom, and his devotion to family and friends, his strong will and integ- 
rity, his frugality and simplicity of life, made him an almost perfect type of the 
Scotchman, although his family had been in this country for 160 years. He was 
deeply interested in genealogy and with great labor and pains he compiled a 
most complete and accurate history of his branch of the Reid family in Amer- 
ica. Besides his membership in the New York Genealogical and .Biographical 
Society, he belonged to Winchester Post, Grand Army of the Republic, of 
Brooklyn, and Constitution Lodge, F. & A. M., of New York. 

He married Mary E. Smith, of Newark, N. J., a descendant of an old New 
Jersey family, on July 27, 1874. They have one son, Victor H. Reid, who is a 
civil engineer connected with the Pennsylvania Railroad and stationed at 
Pittsburg, Pa. 

Gandolfo, Emanuel, died Feb. 8, 1905, at Atlantic City, N. J., aged fifty 
years. He was born Dec. 25, 1854, in New Orleans, La., and was the youngest 
son of Giacomo Gandolfo, the brother of the late James Gandolfo of New 
York, who came to America from Alassio, Italy, anci, settled at New Orleans 
where he became a cotton merchant and died there in 1858. The Gandolfo 
family to which he belonged is one of the oldest and most honorable in Italy. 
The name appears in Italian history as early as the eleventh century, and is 
perpetuated by the ancient and famous Castle Gandolfo situated upon Lake 
Albano in the vicinity of Rome. After the death of his father he returned with 
his mother to Italy where he was educated under private tutors, one of whom 
was the former president of the college of Genoa who had become blind. 

Upon his return to America he came to New York and studied architecture 
with Richard Hunt. After a second sojourn in Italy for the purpose of archi- 
tectural study, he opened an office in New York City and entered upon a pros- 
perous career in his chosen profession. His most important work was the 
Yale gymnasium which he designed and erected in 1892. This edifice brought 
him deserved reputation, but during its construction his beloved wife died after 
a long and painful illness. He never recovered entirely from this sorrow. 
" Though by birth and principle an American, Mr. Gandolfo inherited from his 
Latin ancestors that quality of artistic feeling which rarely subdues itself to 
the caprices of fortune. A man of powerful qualities of mind and heart, reti- 
cent of feeling and simple in his manner, his master-work, the Yale gymnas- 
ium, symbolizes the personality of its author." 

Mr. Gandolfo was married October, 1886, to Anna, only child of Edward 
Livingston Bishop and Anna Bishop, his wife, both of New York City. She died 
in 1891, leaving no children. 

1 50 Notes, Correction, Queries. [April, 


In Dutch Church Marriages of New York is the following: " A° 1642, den 
26 Febr. Oloft Stephenszen, j. m. Van Wyck, tot Duuerstede, en Anneken 
Loockermans, j. d. Van Turnhout." So he was recorded, but when he wrote 
his name it was as Olaf Stevensen Van Cortlandt. He was supposed to have 
been born in 1610. 

A recent search among the records of Wyck-by-Duuerstede, Holland, 
reveals the following entry: "July, 161 1, Jan Cornelissen Van Cortlandt en 
Aeltjen Gysberts Buys." Possibly this was an uncle of Olaf Stevensen Van 
Cortlandt. C. T. R. M.

Mr. Homer W. Brainard of Hartford, Conn., is preparing an extended 
genealogy of the Edward, Capt. Matthew, and Dr. Samuel Fuller lines, and 
desires descendants and those interested to communicate with him and send 
records of these lines. 

Selden. — Mrs. M. LeBrun, Montclair, N. J., and Miss Maria W. Selden, 
Hadlyme, Conn., are preparing a genealogy of the Selden family, treating 
mainly of the ancestors and descendants of Col. Samuel Selden of the Ameri- 
can Revolution with notes on some collateral lines. The editors invite corres- 
pondence as to dates since 1870. 

Mr. John R. Totten, Librarian of the N. Y. Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, is preparing for publication the genealogical record of all of the de- 
scendants (both in the male and female lines) of Antony Thatcher 1st, of Yar- 
mouth, Mass., and of his nephew, Rev. Thos. Thatcher of Weymouth, Mass. 
and Boston, Mass. The manuscript of the work has at this date attained vol- 
uminous dimensions, and at present Mr. Totton is engaged in compiling the 
records of the recent and present generations of this prolific family. He de- 
sires to communicate with all director collateral descendants of these two pro- 
genitors, and also all those interested in the subject matter, and will gladly, 
upon application, furnish blanks prepared for individual records, which records 
will be embodied in his work. 


Cornel. — There is a mistake in the spelling of two names in the Cornel 
query, page 2q2, Vol. XXXV (Oct., 1004), which are: Rem vander Belt, not 
Rem vaner Belt. Dominicus Vander Veer, not Dominicus Van ded Veer. 
This error is also met with in the index.

Savage, does not mention an Edward Avery, indicating that no such per- 
son has been found in early New England records, yet Thompson in his His- 
tory of Long Island mentions one as being among the original settlers of the 
town of Brookhaven which was settled in 1655. His name does not however 
appear in that town's records but once and that not until 1667 when he is re- 
corded in the " Drawers of lots in Newtown." The next year "August ye 5th 
1668 " Edward Avery is engaged as a " Smith" to do the town work at East 
Hampton, L. I., but does not tarry long for his successor was chosen in the 
next February. On the "3d of October 1681 " Edward Avery signs his name 
with an X as an inhabitant of Hempstead, L. I. In the list of the original set- 
tlers of Brookhaven is also to be found the name of Thomas Pierce. One 
Andrew Gibb and one Jonathan Porter appear also, the latter, however, 
appears only in the first contract for the land, showing that he did not go 
there to reside. 

Is it not possible that some of these people did come from Maryland and 
join in this settlement? Certainly the above records would indicate this and I 
would like to ask if anyone has found other evidence of this nature or evidence 
that will tend to contradict the same. morris h. avery,

The Board of Trustees elected Mr. Henry P. Gibson as a member of the 
Board to fill the unexpired term of Mr. Herbert D. Lloyd. 

The $1,000 borrowed temporarily on a note to complete the needed sum to 
pay off the mortgage on the building has been duly paid so that we are now 
free from debt. 

The Treasurer, Mr. George Austin Morrison, Jr., reported the net assets of

Various items and details were explained at length. 

The Librarian, Capt. John R. Totten, reported additions to the Library of 
280 bound volumes and 723 pamphlets, etc.; that, taking the figures previously 
reported as correct, make the total number of books, pamphlets and charts now 
in the Library, 12,452. 1,233 persons visited the Library during the year. He 
expressed his high appreciation of the efficient services rendered by the 
Assistant Librarian, Mrs. Florence E. Youngs, and spoke of the necessity of 
taking a new inventory of the Library in the near future. On motion the re- 
port was received and placed on file. 

The report of the Historian, Dr. William Gray Schauffler, was read by the 
Secretary, he referred to assistance rendered by the following members of the 
Research Committee: Rev. John Cornell, Mr. A. T. Clearwater, Mr. Howard 
Meyers, Miss L. D. Akerly, Mrs. G. W. Smith, Mr. Rufus King and Dr. Wil-

there was no report. 

The Executive Committee, Mr. Morrison, Chairman, reported that the 
building and collections had been kept in good condition and repair, and the 
Library has been largely benefitted by the purchase of new books and many 
valuable donations. 

There had been a net gain in rentals for the year of $183.00, the total being 
$2,735.50, and the Hall had been rented 247 times which brought in more 
money than ever before. Various improvements had been made and still 
further ones were contemplated particularly as regards the Hall. 

A full inventory of the copies of the Record on hand has been taken and 
much work done to ensure a larger list of subscribers in the future. On motion 
the report was received and placed on file. 

The Executive Committee reported the election to membership of Mr. 
Le Roy McKim, 9 West 48th Street, N. Y. City, proposed by Miss L. D.

although the number of its pages and the cost of the publication had been 
greater than ever before. For the coming year it was the intention to make 
the Record in many ways more representative of the character and standing 
of the Society. On motion the report was received and placed on file. 
There was no report from the Committee on Heraldry.

Press of J. J. Little & Co. 1005. 8vo, cloth, pp. XVI-f 538. Price $5.00. 

The first volume of this splendid town history appeared in 1889 and has 
long been regarded as a standard book of reference. In presenting the sec- 
ond volume, which covers the period of the eighteenth century, the author has 
ably carried out the promise of the earlier work, in spite of ill health and ad- 
vancing years. With a clear and unaffected style the author has combined

the fairness and good faith which ought to be displayed by an historian, 
especially in dealing with the religious troubles of colonial days Many quaint 
quotations, illustrative of primitive times and manners, enliven these pages, 
and bring before us in a very human way the personalities of these by-gone 
people. The history is dealt with by years, and the events of these periods 
march in orderly array. Mrs. Schenck, with the wisdom of long experience, is 
generous with names and references, especially in regard to civil and military 
service. The appendix contains a list of inns on the Post Road between New 
York and Boston in 1697, and testimony concerning Revolutionary affairs in 
Fairfield. A number of pages on genealogy, supplemental in most cases to 
the first volume, forms a most useful feature. Perhaps the most valuable part 
of the book, from a genealogical standpoint, is the first extant parish record of 
Christ's Church, Fairfield, in the back of the book, covering Baptisms, 1694 to 
1806; Marriages, 172610 1805, and Communicants from 1694 to 1805. It is a 
pity that so voluminous and valuable a book should be insufficiently indexed.

No. 1. January, 1905. William Abbatt, Editor and Publisher. New York. 
S5.00 a year. 

The Magazine of American History, founded in 1877, ceased to appear in 
1893, not long after the death of Mrs. Martha ]. Lamb, who had been its editor 
for nearly ten years. Its value, as a treasure-house of curious and interesting 
historical matters, is too well known to be dwelt upon here. In the new publi- 
cation before us, which aims to succeed the Magazine of American History, 
we find much to lead us to believe in its literary heirship. It is conducted by 
Mr. William Abbatt, whose work in American historical fields is well known, 
and a specific feature of the new monthly will be the genealogical department, 
conducted by Mr. William Prescott Greenlaw, Librarian of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society. The initial number contains a leading article 
on " The Origin of the Massachusetts Militia," by James J. Tracey, Chief of the 
Massachusetts State Archives Division, and there are other important papers, 
amongst them one by W. G. Stanard, " Has General Lovelace of New York 
been Properly Identified?" Valuable and interesting articles are promised in 
succeeding numbers, which deal with the history of the whole country. To 
sustain this publication one hundred more subscriptions are needed and should 
be forthcoming. The magazine is a monthly, and in general appearance, even 
to type, is as near a duplicate of its predecessor as possible. We wish it all 

Vital Records of the Town of Brewster, Mass., to the End 
OF the Year 1849. Literally transcribed under the direction of George 
Ernest Bowman. Published by the Massachusetts Seciety of Mayflower De- 
scendants at the charge of the Cape Cod Town Record Fund. Boston. 1904. 
8vo, cloth, pp. XI+281. 

In this volume we have a radical departure from the arrangement familiar 
to us in the numerous recently published town records of Massachusetts, in 
that they are literally transcribed, both as to phraseology and order. This sys- 
tem has its advantages, for in doubtful cases the student may exercise his own 
judgment as to the deductions he will make, and not be obliged to depend 
upon that of the compiler; besides which, in the event of the effacement or 
destruction of the original records, many literal copies will be in existence, 
whereas, in the generally accepted form of record printing, no such aid to the 
searcher will be forthcoming in the course of time. The index, arranged as in 
the Mayflower Descendant, is full and good, and the type is clear and pleas- 
ing. One suggestion from a librarian's standpoint would be that the lettering 
on the back of the book is not heavy enough to take the eye, and would render 
the volume difficult to find in a dark alcove or upon an upper shelf. The fund 
at whose charge this series of books appears is a private venture and should 
receive encouragement. It is purposed to publish the Halifax and Truro 
records as soon as the funds warrant them, Truro to appear at the expense of 
the " Cape Cod Town Record Fund," and Halifax at that of the " Old Colony 
Town Record Fund."

The Clayton Family. Henry F. Hepburn. Papers of the Historical 
Society of Delaware, No. XLI. Wilmington. The John M. Rogers Press. 
1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 41. 

This paper, by the late Henry F. Hepburn, was read before the Historical 
Society of Delaware, February 15, 1904. In it the compiler traces the family 
name to Robert De Clayton, Lord of the Manor of Clayton in the time of Wil- 
liam the Conqueror. Following the line, it is shown that the founder of the 
Virginia Claytons was a son of Sir John and Alice (Bowyer) Clayton of London 
and Parson's Green, Fulham, Middlesex; that the Pennsylvania branch sprang 
from William Clayton of Oakenshaw, Yorkshire ; and that Joshua Clayton, 
first of that name in Delaware, also descended from William of Oakenshaw. 
The family has always produced influential citizens, a remarkable number of 
them having been members of the bar, clergymen and physicians, and not a 
few have occupied high offices in the gift of the people. The book has several 
excellent illustrations taken from silhouettes and miniatures, and the author, 
although depriving us of an index, gives us a list of the authorities cited in the 

Index to Obituary and Biographical Notices in Jackson's Ox- 
ford Journal (newspaper), 1753— 1853. Compiled, printed and published by 
Edward A. B. Mordaunt. Vol. I, 1753, 1754, 1755. London. 1904. Quarto, 
pamphlet, pp. 34. 

In his preface Mr. Mordaunt modestly explains why he printed this index, 
but the work amply justifies itself. Jackson's Oxford Journal, during the 
period of one hundred years which Mr. Mordaunt proposes to cover, contains 
several million names, and even if access could readily be had to the Journal 
the tediousness of research through its columns would greatly add to the stu- 
dent's trials. Therefore the index will doubtless prove most useful to those con- 
cerned with that period, both in England and America, a number of references 
being made to the latter. The Index is well printed, and its shape enables 
most of the records to occupy but one line. 

Newburgh Historical Society Papers, No. XL Newburgh. 1904.

Perhaps the most interesting article in this number is that on the boundary 
dispute between Wawayanda and Cheesek-ook, which received a hearing at 
Chester in 1785. The point in question was to determine what constituted the 
Highlands of the Hudson. In the testimony of the witnesses, which has been 
condensed and arranged by Col. Charles H. Weygant, the attempt was merely 
to show what they understood by the term " the Highlands." In testifying, 
they stated when and where they were born, how long they had lived in the 
neighborhood, and in various other ways imparted valuable genealogical in- 
formation, establishing in a number of cases the links connecting the pioneers 
with ancestry in other parts of the country. This number also contains an in- 
teresting paper by Mr.'E. M. Ruttenber on Historic Homes in Orange County, 
and articles by Ferdinand V. Sanford and Theo. D. Schoonmaker. 

The Descendants of Adam Mott of Hempstead, Long Island, 
N. Y. A Genealogical Study. Edward Doubleday Harris. New York. 8vo, 
pamphlet, pp. 8. 

The compiler, in collecting material for a genealogical history of the 
family, issued this pamphlet to enlist the co-operation of its members.' It 
deals with the well-known Long Island family, whose records, however, are 
most confusing, owing to similarity of names and the almost entire absence of 
public vital statistics bearing on the case. The pamphlet is a valuable and 
suggestive one, and should arouse the interest and bring forth the records of 
the clan, to the end that the genealogy when published may be as complete 
and accurate as possible.

156 Book Notices. [April, 

1903, Vol. I, pp. 470-541. Washington. Government Printing Office. 1904. 
8vo, pamphlet, pp. 62. 

Any work by Mr. Nelson will be hailed with joy by those who have occa- 
sion to look to New Jersey for ancient records. This pamphlet, representing a 
portion of his work as Chairman of the Public Record Commission of New 
Jersey, enumerates the archives with detailed descriptions. It tells where 
records are to be found, their nature, condition and value ; points out which 
are published or shortly to be published, and deals with the whole series of ar- 
chives from about 1665 to the present time. It is heartily to be wished that 
some one would do for New York State what Mr. Nelson and his confreres are 
doing for New Jersey. 

Olde Ulster. An Historical and Genealogical Magazine. Kingston, 
N. Y. Published by the Editor, Benjamin Meyer Brink. 

This magazine is a welcome addition to the cause of historical and genea- 
logical research in our State. It is chiefly devoted to that well-known territory 
designated in our colonial annals as " The Esopus," but which is nowembraced 
in the counties of Ulster, Orange, Greene, Delaware and Sullivan. Its earliest 
settlement was made in 1652 at the present Kingston, which is, therefore, the 
oldest place in this State north of New York City, excepting Albany. The 
Dutch and French obtained an early foothold in this region, and the English, 
Germans and Scotch were not slow in following. The whole country is rich in 
quaint and interesting associatians of other days, and Kingston itself has a his- 
tory of exceptional interest. It was the scene of a terrible Indian massacre in 
1663, became the first capitol of the State in 1777, and was totally destroyed by 
fire the same year by the British. Mr. Brink, the editor of Olde Ulster, is an 
enthusiastic historian, antiquary and genealogist, and is sparing no pains to 
make the magazine worthy of the traditionary importance of the section to 
which it relates. His recent History of Saugerties and his researches in the 
field of Knickerbocker folk-lore have gained for him an enviable reputation. 
The magazine is superbly published, monthly, in a dainty, old-fashioned style, 
upon deckle-edge Moorish paper, and justly commands the admiration of con- 
noisseurs of the most artistic taste. The subscription price is $2.00 a year. 

Rolls of Connecticut Men in the French and Indian War. 
Vol. II, 1758-1762. Appendixes 1755-1764. Vol. X of Collections of the Con- 
necticut Historical Society, Hartford. Connecticut Historical Society. 1905. 
8vo, cloth, pp. XVI+472. 

Completing the French and Indian War Rolls, this volume is an important 
addition to the military records of Connecticut. Particular care has been ex- 
ercised by the editor in preparing the manuscript and in comparing the proof 
of every roll with the original, in order to avoid mistakes. The index cards, 
also, which were written by Miss Gay, were carefully compared by him with 
the proof sheets. Such care being taken, the volume ought to be an unim- 
peachable authority. 

The Beckley Family. Reprint from the History of Ancient Wethers- 
field. Mrs. C. B. Sheppard. N. P. N. D. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 23. 

The family with which this monograph is concerned descend from Ser- 
geant Richard Beckley, the first settler of Beckley Quarter, Wethersfield, of 
whom tradition says that he came from Hampshire, England. The pamphlet 
presents the records of seventy-eight families of his descendants. 

Report on the Archives of Rhode Island. Clarence A. Brigham, 
Librarian of the Rhode Island Historical Society. Reprinted from the Annual 
Report of the American Historical Association for the year 1903. Vol. I, pp. 
543-644. Washington. Government Printing Office. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, 
pp. 101. 

This report attempts to list and describe all of the manuscript archives in 
the possession of the State of Rhode Island, of the five county courts, and of 
each city and town in the State. The great difficulties attendant upon the col- 

I go 5. J Book Notices. 1 57 

lection of facts concerning the manuscript archives has made it seem desirable 
to leave the enumeration of printed records for some future time, no complete 
list of the latter having ever been made. Mr. Brigham reports the encourag- 
ing fact of a growing desire on the part of Town Councils to provide safe ac- 
commodations for their records. The report is very full and painstaking, and 
will be of immense help and saving of time and expense to the future searcher 
in Rhode Island. 

Views of Early New York with Illustrative Sketches. Pre- 
pared for the New York Chapter of the Colonial Order of the Acorn. New 
York. Privately printed. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 142. 

This book is a very beautiful example of book-making in every part. It 
presents to the reader a series of views of old New York which were first shown 
to the guests of the Colonial Order at their annual banquets, and have been re- 
produced on copper by Mr. Edwin Davis French. Beginning with a picture of 
New Amsterdam in 1650, artist unknown, showing the fort, the windmill and a 
handful of houses on a strip of land surrounded by Indians in canoes, and 
brooded over by three tall ships, the views go on to illustrate New York in 
1671, 1673, 1733, before the Revolutionary War, and finally in 1801. Accom- 
panying these views, which are most interesting and beautifully executed, are 
papers by Fordham Morris on " New York in 1650;" William Cary Sanger on 
"Dutch Influence in New York;" William Gordon Verplanck on " Oranje 
Boven;" William Loring Andrews on "New York in 1733;" Henry Axtell 
Prince on " New York before the Revolutionary War;" and William Gilbert 
Davies on " New York in 1801." Mr. Verplanck, in his paper, deals with the 
view of New York in 1673, and states that it appeared on several maps and in 
various collections of views at the close of the seventeenth and beginning of 
the eighteenth centuries. He gives us a list of these publications, with brief 
accounts of their engravers, and concludes from internal evidence that the 
view under discussion was made just before the province finally passed into 
English hands, and is therefore the last view of our city under the Dutch ad- 

Notes for the Guidance of Authors in the Submission of 
Manuscripts to Publishers. New York. . The Mercantile Co. 1905. 
t6mo, pamphlet, pp. 66. Price 25 cents. 

This practical handbook may be read with profit by anyone who intends 
to publish a book. It contains advice as to the preparation of manuscripts, 
copyright, proof-reading, binding, style and other congenial subjects, most of 
which is as applicable to genealogical works as to other publications. 

Ancestors and Descendants of William and Elizabeth Rey- 
nolds of North Kingstown, R. I. Thomas A. Reynolds, East Green- 
wich, R. I., and William A. Reynolds, Wilmington, Del. Edited and arranged 
by Alfred C. Willits, Holmesburg, Philadelphia. N. P. 1903. 8vo, pamph- 
let, pp. 42. 

James Reynolds and Deborah his wife were living in the Narragansett 
Country in the year 1665, and doubtless at a much earlier period, as Savage 
says he probably resided at Plymouth in 1643. Although the cradle of the 
family was Rhode Island, they wandered far, and few if any of the descendants 
reside there now. The pamphlet contains notes on the Greene, Bowen and 
Gorton families as allied to the Reynolds, and an appendix supplies other 
points, including references and explanations. 

Richard Mower of Lynn and some of his Descendants. Com- 
piled and arranged by Edward L. Smith from material gathered by Nahum W. 
Mower of Jaffrey, N. H., and Mrs. Earl A. Mower of Lynn, Mass. East Jef- 
frey, N. H. The Monaduock Press. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 16. 

Richard Mower of Lynn, who came to America on the Blessing in 1635, 
has left descendants who are not strong in numbers, but are remarkable for 
their ardent patriotism. A goodly proportion of his sons in every generation 
have been soldiers or have married into military families. 


Book Notices. [April, 

The Churchill Family in America. Compiled by Gardner Asaph 
Churchill and Nathaniel Wiley Churchill. Editor and Associate Compiler, 
Rev. George M. Bodge. Published by the Family of Gardner A. Churchill. 
N. P. N. D. 8vo, cloth, pp. XV+707. Price S5.00. 

The Churchill families, while no doubt descending from the very old 
English stock of that name, can only trace their descent with certainty from 
the emigrant ancestors John of Plymouth, Josiah of Wethersfield or William of 
New York. The first appeared at Plymouth in 1643, the second at Wethers- 
field about 1638, and the third at New York in 1672, although the two last 
named were probably in this country at an earlier date. When the prospectus 
was issued, it was intended to make a book of four hundred pages, but it was 
found that the descendants in the female lines were among the most enthusi- 
astic supporters of the enterprise. So it was decided to carry the female lines 
down to their children's children, where possible, and to bring the lineal de- 
scent down to the present generation. This liberal plan has almost doubled 
the size of the book, but has added greatly to its interest and value. In its 
arrangement it follows the Register plan with modifications, the three main 
branches of Plymouth, Connecticut and New York being seperately treated, 
but indexed together in a very complete index. It would no doubt have been 
a great satisfaction to the two earlier compilers could they .have lived to see 
the completion of a work for which they felt such self-sacrificing enthusiasm, 
and which Mr. Bodge has carried to a very satisfactory end. 

James Sprunt Historical Monograph, No. 5. Minutes of the Kehu- 
key Association (Baptist). With Letter of Joel Battle Fort, and with Introduc- 
tion and Notes by Kemp Plummer Battle, LL.D. Published by the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina. 1004. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 32. 

The Letter contains genealogical information concerning Elias Fort. The 
Minutes of the association begin Nov. 6, 1769 and end in 1777, and as they con- 
tain lists of the meetings represented and the men or " messengers " who 
served as delegates from them, the pamphlet will be useful in establishing the 
residences of some of the settlers in North Carolina at that period. 

Denison-Sheldon Family. Chart. James Sheldon, Jr. 

This chart deals with the descendants of William Denison in the line of 
Palmer and Denison families to the children of James and Sarah (Carew) 
Sheldon. These descendants, through their Denison-Gorham ancestry, trace 
their line to John Howland of the Mayflower, Captain John Gorham, Captain 
George Denison and other worthies of the olden time. 

Concerning Genealogies. Frank Allaben. The Grafton Press. 1904. 
12 D, cloth, pp. 71. 

In this little book the author urges the advantage of a system of genealog- 
ical record-making which many persons have used for a number of years with 
the best results. He dwells upon the advisability of tracing the ancestry of a 
given person in every possible direction instead of tracing the descendants of 
one ancestor. The fact that this plan is not novel does not prevent it being a 
most excellent system, which appeals to almost every one. The author has 
given us a most readable book, attractively bound and printed.

pp. V+186. 

This little book, whose contents are pretty thoroughly described in the 
title, was not intended for public distribution, but there is so little printed in 
other works of some of the names mentioned herein, that it will no doubt be 
very useful to many outside of the family, especially to those interested in 
New Jersey lines. There are many pleasing pictures of the homesteads of the 
different branches, and poems, some written by members of the family.

Dexter Genealogy, 1642-IQ04. Being a history of the descendants of 
Richard Dexter of Maiden, Mass., from the notes of John Haven Dexter and 
original researches. Orrando Perry Dexter. Arranged by Henry S. Mills. 
New York. Press of J. J. Little & Co. 1904. 12 D, cloth, pp. 279. 

The history of this branch of the Dexter family was begun over fifty years 
ago by the late John Haven Dexter of Boston, who spent many years compiling 
data for the same, which he presented to the late Orrando Perry Dexter. 
This latter gentleman commenced his researches while an undergraduate at 
Oxford, but his tragic death in 1903 prevented the publication, by him, of his 
life's work, which came into the hands of Mr. Mills for completion. Early 
Irish records show the Dexter family to have existed in 1281, when the King 
confirmed a grant made to Richard de Exonia (Exeter) of land in Connaught. 
The earliest American progenitor was Richard Dexter of Boston and Charles- 
town, who died in 1680, aged 60 years or thereabouts. From him is traced a 
long line of worthy and reputable descendants, whose records are valuable in 
the study of New England history. In presenting the genealogy, Mr. Orrando 
Perry Dexter was desirous to give his authority for each and every statement, 
and in order to do this conveniently, a list of authorities is given at the begin- 
ning of the volume, with arbitrary numbers and signs corresponding to facts 
quoted in the body of the book. This feature, in addition to the very complete 
index, adds greatly to the value of this genealogy. 

Family of Rev. Solomon Mead. 2d edition. Caroline A. Ely and 
Louise Hunt. Partly manuscript, pp. 305. 

The second edition shows the carefully continued work of these compilers, 
who have added greatly both in manuscript and printed matter, to the original 
volume. The manuscript is beautifully written, and the whole work shows the 
loving interest which has been expended upon it. . 

Chart of the American Branch of the Family of Johnstone 
or Johnston. . / 

Dr. John Johnstone of Edinburgh, Scotland, landed at Perth Amboy, 
Colony of New Jersev, from the bark Henry and Francis in 1685. His bride, 
Eupheme Scot, daughter of George Scot, Laird of Pitlochie, came or/the same 
ship, and they were married about a year later. Their descendants intermar- 
ried with the Van Cortlandt, Walton, Reed, Barberie, Gouverneur, Fenno and 
other distinguished families. 

The Roosevelt Genealogy, 1649-1902. Charles Barney Whittelsey. 
Hartford. J. B. Burr & Co. 1902. 8vo, cloth, pp. 121. 

A Dutch pedigree is always of peculiar interest to a New Yorker, who is, 
or ought to be, himself a descendant of "Oranje Boven." Should he be priv- 
ileged to show some of the worthy Dutch strain, he can point with pride to the 
unrivalled manner in which the early church records of his forefathers were 
kept, knowing that not only his family records are clear and unimpeachable, 
but that a pleasant list of friends and neighbors can be found in the baptismal 
register. The Roosevelt family was one of this privileged number, and the book 
before us a particularly interesting one. Beginning with a pen picture of pub- 
lic affairs at the period at which Claes Martenzen van Rosenvelt emigrated to 
this country, it goes on with the enumeration of his descendants, most of whom 
have become prominent in some way, amongst them being the present Presi- 
dent of the United States. Descents are given of a number of those inter- 
marrying with the family, and the compiler is most satisfactory in his faithful 
quotation of references. The index is good, and the scarlet binding, lettered 
in white, is very attractive and practical.

many other variations of the name.are grouped here, with a great deal of in-

The Franklin Press. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 183. Price S3. 13, post paid, on 
application to the rector. 

This very beautiful book is one of the most satisfactory parish histories 
which has yet appeared. Its issue is partly in order to rehearse the story of 
the ancient parish which succeeded Jamestown, which was the earliest church 
foundation in this country excepting some Roman Catholic missions. Bruton 
Church was the Court Church of Colonial Virginia from 1699 to the Revolution, 
and has been continuously in use. Here worshipped the Colonial Governors, 
Councillors and the member of the House of Burgesses. Five men who be- 
came Presidents of the United States attended its services. The names con- 
tained in the Birth and Death Record of the old parish register of 1662 have 
been inserted, which is the first time this record has been published. It con- 
tains over 1,000 names, and is completely indexed. The names of Parish Ves- 
trymen from 1674 to 1903, with a list of communicants from 1868 to date are 
given. The history and illustrations of the Jamestown font and communion 
silver, now in this church, also a description of the silver given by King 
George III and by Queen Anne are included in this volume. All the mural 
tablets and tombstone inscriptions from 1678 to 1800, some of which are ex- 
ceedingly quaint, are printed, with historical notes appended. The volume is 
well written and illustrated, beautifully printed, with excerpts from the regis- 
ters in Old English type, and is a book which any Churchman or Virginian 
ought to wish to keep. The work is sold for the fund for restoring the building. 

The Forman Genealogy. Descendants of Robert Forman of Kent 
Co., Maryland, who died in 1710-20; also Descendants of Robert Forman of 
Long Island, New York, who died in 1671; the Forman Family of Monmouth 
Co., New Jersey; together with notice of other families of the name of Forman. 
Compiled principally by Miss Anne Spottswood Dandridge for Mrs. E. P. 
Dismukes of Columbus, Ga. Cleveland. The Forman-Bassett-Hatch Co. 
1903. Quarto, cloth, pp. 151.. 

This genealogy begins with the Formans of Maryland, whose founder ar- 
rived there in 1674. Whether he came directly from England, or was an off- 
shoot of a family already settled in the colonies, is unknown. He became an 
extensive land owner in Kent County, and at his death mentioned eight child- 
ren in his will, from whom the name in that neighborhood descends. The 
second part deals with the descendants of Robert of Oyster Bay, who was one 
of the incorporators of Flushing, Long Island, in 1645, some of whose descend- 
ants settled in Monmouth Co.. New Jersey. The work abounds with extracts 
from Colonial and State archives, abstracts of wills, tombstone records, and 
other illustrative matter; contains a number of family portraits, some of colon- 
ial ancestors; has a genealogy of the Sweatnam family; and in the appendix 
gives brief notes of unlocated Formans. Very little southern genealogy has 
been published, therefore this valuable addition to the number will be appre- 

Genealogy of the Wells Family and Families Related. Ger- 
trude W. Wells-Cushing. Milwaukee S. E. Tate & Company, Printers. 
N. D. 8vo, cloth, pp. 205. 

The Wells family treated here is that of Thomas Wells of Ipswich, Mass., 
who probably came from Essex, England. In the third generation they re- 
moved to Wells, Me., and later the family has spread to other parts of 
Maine and the West. Over thirty genealegies are included in the book, 
tracing the ancestry of those who intermarried with the Wells' descendants. 
Among the most prominent of these are Allen, Bigelow, Day, Dwight, Flagg,

Hartford District, 1700-1729. Charles William Manwaring. Hartford. R. S. 
Peck & Co. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 711. Price $7 .00. 

Almost every one of New England ancestry will find some of his fore- 
fathers to have dwelt in or been concerned with Connecticut, therefore this 
series of records must contain more or less of interest to a great many people. 
The extracts from the original libers are very full and literal, and like the New 
Jersey and Virginia wills recently published, contain inventories, distribution 
of estates and other congenial information which sheds a great deal of light 
upon the subject. Vol. I, to which reference will be frequently made, contains 
a list of Probate Districts, showing the changes made from the beginning, and 
also what towns were comprised by them at every stage. Explanation of dower 
rights, cases of guardianship, etc., appears in the current volume, which is sub- 
stantial, well printed, cross-referenced and indexed. 

; The De Riemer Family, A. D. i64o(?)-iqo3. By Rev. W. E. De 
Riemer. Edition of 100 copies. Reprint from New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Record, with additions. New York. Tobias A. Wright. I905. 
Large 8vo, cloth, pp. 48. 

One only need glance at this book to know that the compiler is a born gen- 
ealogist. The collection and arrangement of facts and records bear evidence of 
his ability and of the pains he took. There are two distinct periods in the 
Colonial history of New York — the Dutch period of 50 years, extending from 
1614 to 1664, the date of Stuyvesant's surrender to the English fleet — and the 
English period of 160 years, from 1664 to 1773, when the Revolutionary War 
began. Among the pioneers who figured conspiciously in both these periods 
were some whose lives have not hitherto been made prominent. Their names 
are Cresson, de la Plaine, Anthony, Steenwyck, Brouwer, de Foreest, Wessels, 
Gouverneur, le Chevalier, Roome, Courten, Drisius, Selyns, Roosevelt, and De 
Riemer. These were all affiliated by marriage with the De Riemer family, 
and this book will be interesting reading to the descendants of most of them. 
A fine photogravure portrait of the author, and a print of the former residence 
of Petrus De Riemer at Poughkeepsie, N. Y., illustrates the work. Edition lim- 
ited 100 copies. Price $2.50. Address the author, Rev. W. E. De Riemer, 931

Vol. XXXVI. NEW YORK, JULY, 1905. No. 3. 


By Jas. Grant Wilson, D. C. L. 

Edward Floyd DeLancey, Second President of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, was born of distinguished 
ancestry at Mamaroneck, N. Y., Oct. 23, 182 1, and died at Ossin- 
ing, N. Y., April 8, 1905. He was a descendant of a French 
Huguenot, Etienne (Stephen) DeLancey, a successful New York 
merchant, whose house, well known as Fraunce's Tavern, is now 
the oldest building in the metropolis. Edward was the eldest 
son of William Heathcote DeLancey, first Bishop of Western 
New York, and Frances, second daughter of Peter Jay Munro, 
who were married in 1820. He received his early education at 
the hands of the Rev. John Eustace and Samuel Wylie Crawford 
of Philadelphia, later entering the University of Pennsylvania, 
but upon the elevation of his father to the Episcopate in 1839, he 
accompanied the family to Geneva, where the Bishop established 
his permanent residence, and entered Hobart College, being 
graduated with the class of 1843. 

While a student at Geneva, he had what is probably the most 
extraordinary escape from drowning that has ever been recorded. 
In company with a number of his fellow students, he was bath- 
ing in Seneca Lake at a point below the bank, very near the 
College. A log raft was floating a short distance out from shore, 
and although not an expert swimmer he succeeded in reaching 
it. In some way the log turned with him and threw him back 
into the water. Instead of trying to regain the log ne attempted 
to swim ashore; but his strength gave out, and he sank, un- 
noticed by his companions. In relating this incident he said that 
all the popular ideas about coming up three times, living over all 
one's past life, etc., are erroneous, and that in his case he only 
thought of being separated from his family. There was no 
struggle, no sense of suffocation, nor other painful experiences. 
He remembered lying on the bottom of the lake and watching 
the bubbles floating on the surface, and feeling "quite comfort- 
able." Meanwhile the others went on with their sport, and 


170 President Edward F. De Lancey. [J u 'y. 

finally came ashore. Suddenly somebody exclaimed, " Where's 
de Lancey ? " There was a scramble back into the water, and 
much diving and searching. At length he was seen by a fellow 
student, the late Judge Boardman, of Ithaca, N. Y., who dove and 
brought him up. Doctors, blankets, and brandy were soon se- 
cured, and after a long struggle he was revived. The strangest 
part of this story is, that after the excitement was over, and there 
was time for careful inquiry, the fact was proved by a number of 
witnesses that the shortest possible time that he could have been 
lying at the bottom of the lake, in eight or nine feet of water, 
was twenty minutes! ; and there is strong probability that he was 
there half an hour ! The case was very carefully investigated by 
the physicians, and made the subject of a medical report. These 
particulars are given on the authority of his brother, William 
Heathcote De Lancey, and his son, Edward E. De Lancey. Mr. 
De Lancey studied in Albany, later becoming a member of the 
Harvard Law School, and for several years enjoyed the distinc- 
tion of being the only survivor of his class. After his admission 
to the bar, he practiced his profession four years in Albany, when 
he removed to New York, entering into partnership with Gerard 
Walton Morris, and later with George Clinton Genet, both of 
whom Mr. De Lancey survived. As a youth he accompanied his 
father in an extended European tour of fourteen months, and 
again in 1867 he went abroad, remaining more than two years, 
devoting a portion of the time to business in England, and then 
to visiting Asia Minor, Northern Africa, the Holy Land, and 
other places in the Old World that he had not previously seen. 

In November, 1848, Mr. De Lancey and Miss Josephine Ma- 
tilda De Zeng, eldest daughter of William Steuben and Caroline 
De Zeng, were married by Bishop De Lancey in Trinity Church, 
Geneva. Of the six children of this marriage only two are liv- 
ing — Edward Etienne and Josephine De Zeng De Lancey. Mrs. 
De Lancey died in June, 1865. He continued to reside in New 
York until 1901, when, chiefly owing to the infirmities of ad- 
vancing years, he abandoned the city to reside with his son at 
Ossining, where he died, and was placed in the family burial 
ground at Mamaroneck, by the side of his father and grandfather, 
after a funeral service in Trinity Church, Ossining. 

During the last three decades of the nineteenth century, Mr. 
De Lancey devoted much time to antiquarian and historical re- 
search. He was the first President of the Westchester County 
Historical Society from 1874 to 1879, and the second President of 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society from 1873 
to 1876, also for many years a member of its Publication Com- 
mittee, and contributing freely to the columns of its quarterly 
publication, the Record. The following ten titles represent a 
portion of the papers contributed by him :

Vol. IV. No. 2; Memoir of the Rev. Dr. Henry Munro, Vol. IV,

Perhaps Mr. De Lancey's most important literary work was 
performed in the interests of the New York Historical Society, 
of which he was a life-member for fifty-four years. During that 
long period he was for three decades a member or Chairman of 
the Executive Committee ; Domestic Corresponding Secretary 
for two decades, and for many years Chairman of the Publication 
Committee. As such, he edited and supervised the issuing of 
Judge Thomas Jones's History of New York during the Revolu- 
tionary War, an outspoken and one-sided work, written from an 
extreme loyalist's point of view, which,, was published in two 
large octavo volumes in 1879. He was/also editor of the Secret 
Correspondence of Sir Henry Clintonfwhich appeared six years 
later in the Magazine of American History. To Appletons' 
Cyclopaedia of American Biography, Mr. De Lancey contributed 
more then a score of valuable articles, including notices of the 
prominent members of his own family. He was also the author 
of Memoir of James De Lancey, Lieutenant-Governor of the 
Province of New York (Albany, 185 1); The Capture of Fort Wash- 
ington the Result of Treason (New York, 1877) ; Memoir of James 
W. Beekman (New York, 1879) ; Memoir of Williai7i Allen, Chief 
Justice of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, 1879) ; Origin and History 
of Manors in the Province of New York (New York, 1886); and 
History of Mamaroneck, N. Y. (New York, 1886.) 

Mr. De Lancey was for many years a delegate from Zion 
Church, New York, to the Annual Conventions of the Diocese, and 
was Treasurer of that body from 1866 to 1881, when he declined 
re-election. He was also a Trustee of the Fund for Aged and 
Infirm Clergymen, and a Trustee of Trinity School, important 
positions, requiring intelligence and good judgment for their 
proper management. He was President for two years of the St. 
Nicholas Society, and for several years Vice-President of the 
Huguenot Society of America, for New York, in which he took 
an active interest, and he was a member of many other associa- 
tions, including the Society of Colonial Wars, and the American 
Philosophical Society of Philadelphia. Mr. De Lancey collected 
a considerable library, and his knowledge of it was not confined 
to the outside of his books, being one who fully appreciated 

" The dead but sceptred Sovereigns, who still rule 
Our spirits from their urns." 

The following resolutions may properly be added to this tribute 
to Mr. De Lancey's memory : 

Resolutions passed by the Board of Trustees of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, May 2, 1905, on the death 
of Edward Floyd De Lancey: 

" Resolved. That in the death of Edward Floyd De Lancey, 

172 New York Gleanings in England. [July. 

who departed this life April 7, 1905, aged eighty- three years, the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society sustains a loss 
of one of its oldest friends and most distinguished members. 
Joining this Society in 1869, the very year of its foundation, Mr. 
De Lancey gave it his generous and efficient support, and for 
many years was one of the foremost in its councils, having been 
its President from 1873 until 1876 ; and for sixteen years, from 
1873 to 1889, a member of the Board of Trustees. 

Therefore we, the Trustees of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, extend our sincere sympathy to his rela- 
tives, and order that this acknowledgment of Mr. De Lancey's 
conspicuous services be placed upon our minutes, and a copy of 
same be engrossed and sent to the family." 

The following resolutions were adopted on the death of Mr. 
Edward Floyd De Lancey, at a stated meeting of The New York 
Historical Society, also held May 2, 1905 : 

The New York Historical Society has learned with sincere re- 
gret of the death on April 7, 1905, of Mr. Edward Floyd De 
Lancey, a life-member of the Society since 185 1, member of the 
Executive Committe, 1 869-1 899 ; Chairman of the same, 1896- 
1899 ; and Domestic Corresponding Secretary, 1879-1899. 

Resolved. That the Society places upon record its regard for 
his memory and recognition of his literary accomplishments, and 
the services which he rendered this Institution. 

Resolved. That an attested copy of these resolutions be trans- 
mitted to the family of Mr. De Lancey.

[This account of the Griffen Family, of Flushing, L. I., was gathered by my 
father in his lifetime while living on Long Island. His name was Joseph 
Griffen, and the account must have been gathered by him before 1843. It was 
carefully preserved for many years by his sister, my Aunt Huldah Anthony, 
wife of Asa Anthony, both of whom are now deceased. In the Record for 
1891, Vol. 22, p. 191, Mr. Edward J. Cleveland has an article on The Griffin 
Family, but it is very incomplete, as regards the Griffen branch of Flushing, 
L. I., so I send the following]: Z. T. G. 

Richard(?) Griffen (i) emigrated from Wales, and was one of 
the first settlers on Long Island. He lived at Flushing, L. I., and 
had several children, but it is uncertain how many. The family

at Amawalk, N. Y., were descendants of his. He had a son: 

Richard (2) who continued to live at Flushing, and married a 
woman named Haight. Jacob and Nichols Haight, and others 
at Nine Partners, N. Y., are descendants of the same family, also 
the families of Haight at Rye, N. Y. 

Richard Griffen (2) had 14 children. The eldest was Samuel, 
then Joshua, Jonathan, Edward (3), Obediah, Joseph, Gilbert, 
James, Richard, Abraham, Deborah, Sarah, Mary and Miriam. 

Samuel and James went East. Samuel left several children. 

James went to Oxford, and was a military character. He 
married in Boston, where he continued his profession, and left 
no children. 

Richard and Abraham went to the Southward, where they 
settled and left families. 

» Jonathan, Edward (3) and Obediah settled in Westchester Co., 
N. Y., near each other. Jonathan at Scarsdale, Edward (3) and 
Obediah at Tuckahoe, or Phillip's Manor. 

Jonathan was a military character, and an active, enter- 
prising man. He did much business in a mercantile way, and 
suffered much in his large estate during the Revolutionary War. 
He left no children, except an adopted son. 

Edward (3), Obediah and Joseph moved to Nine Partners. 

Edward left 12 children, whose names were:

epidemic fever. He left five sons and two daughters. The names 
of the sons were:

of any record of the first Richard at Flushing, L. I. 

Edward (3) was a Quaker, and I think Jonathan was also. I 
know that my grandfather Gershom, and my father were 
Quakers, and so the military service was very distasteful. The 
account shows this religious bias. But many of the collateral 
branches went into the Revolutionary War, notably Col. Jacob 
Griffen, of Dutchess Co. Some of these were Royalists, and went 
to Canada and Nova Scotia, and their descendants are active in 
Canadian politics and in the militia. 

History of the Schermerhorn Family. [July, 


By Wm. C. Schermerhorn, Esq. 

Contributed by Walter Lispenard Suydam. 

(Continued from Vol. XXXVI, p. 147, of The Record.) 

[Note.— On p. 142, Record for April, 1905, date of birth of Jacob Jansen 
Schermerhorn should read 1622, not 1662.] 

John Schermerhorn, 

the eldest son of Arnout Schermerhorn, was born in New York 
on July 8th, 1715, and was baptized there on July 13, 17 15. 

On June 10, 1741, he married Sarah Cannon, daughter of 
John Cannon * who descended from a family of Refugees from 
Rochelle, France, which came to this country not long after the 
revocation of the Edict of Nantes. 

Like his father and grandfather, John Schermerhorn followed 
a sea-faring life, as Master \ and probably owner of vessels 
trading between New York and Charleston, S. C, and no doubt 
carried on business in both places. He is always described as 
"Mariner" and "Merchant." 

He was also engaged in fitting out " Letters of Marque," or 
"Privateers" in the war between England and France. I 

From a general release, dated Dec. 10, 1761 (Register's office, 
Liber 36 of Con., p. 49), it would appear that John Schermerhorn 
paid off certain liabilities of his father, Arnout. He died in New 
York on Sept. 10, 1768. Sarah, his wife, died Dec. 30, 1762. §

Church in New York. The family must then have abandoned the church of 
their forefathers for the church of England, since the next child (Catherine), 
and all after her, were baptized by a clergyman of the latter church. They 
attended St. George's Chapel in Beekman street, then a chapel of Trinity

202 History of the Schermerhorn Family. [July, 

He adopted the calling of his father and grandfather at an 
early age, for in his marriage certificate (dated in his twenty- 
second year) he is styled " Captain " Schermerhorn. Like his 
ancestors, he was doubtless commander and owner of vessels 
trading between New York and Charleston, his relations with 
the latter city often appearing incidentally. 

During the troubles in New York, in 1776, after the "Asia 
fired upon the town " and before the British took possession, he 
removed with his family to the neighborhood of Hyde Park, on 
the Hudson River, and there remained until after the peace of 
1783, some of his children having been born there. 

The motives for this removal were mostly political, but it is 
probable that so much of his property as consisted of vessels 
was, by the same means, saved from seizure. Many, if not all 
the members of his father's family withdrew from New York at 
the same time. 

After his return to New York he established himself in busi- 
ness as a ship chandler, admitting, 1802, his second son, Peter, 
and in 1808, his third son, Abraham, the styles of the firms hav- 
ing been successively " Peter Schermerhorn & Son " and " Peter 
Schermerhorn & Sons." In 1791, his place of business and his 
residence were at 71 and 73 Water Street, respectively; in 1794, 
at 220 and 224 Water Street, respectively; while in 1799, they 
were transferred, the former to 243 Water Street and the latter 
to 68 Broadway and there remained unchanged until his death. 

In 1795; he, with his brother, Simon, purchased probably from 
the Executors of Jacob Bennet, about 160 acres at Gowanus 
(Brooklyn), which they made their summer residence. In 1816, 
having acquired his brother's interest, he conveyed the whole to 
his son, Abraham. A part of it is now comprised in Greenwood 

On Jan. 28, 1806, he purchased from Thomas Marsten, about 
4>4 acres on the East River, at the foot of 82d Street, which he 
occupied in summer until his death. 

On Jan. 31, 1809, with Mathew Clarkson, Herman LeRoy, 
Henry Rogers and Gulian Ludlow, he conveyed to the " Rector, 
etc , of Grace Church " property on the corner of Rector Street 
and Broadway, upon which the old German Lutheran Church 
formerly stood and upon which Grace Church had then just 
been erected, such property having been conveyed to the grantors 
by the Trustees of said Lutheran Church, in trust, to convey 
the same to Grace Church as soon as it should have been 

In 1796, he was elected a Director of the Bank of New York, 
organized in 1784. He died at his residence, No. 69 Broadway, on 
Jan. 28, 1826, his wife having died there on Jan. 8, 1809. Children

Peter Schermerhorn (the Younger), 

the second son of Peter Schermerhorn (the Elder), was born at 
Stoutenburgh's* (now Hyde Park), Dutchess County, New York, 
on April 22, 1781, and was baptized on Sept. 29, 1782, at Pough- 
keepsie. On April 5, 1804, he married Sarah, daughter of John 
and Eleanor Jones, f 

In 1802 he was associated with his father, in business, under 
the style of " Peter Schermerhorn & Son," Ship Chandlers. His 
brother, Abraham, was admitted to the firm in 1808, the style then 
becoming "Peter Schermerhorn & Sons." In 1810, the two bro- 
thers formed a separate firm, fctyled "Schermerhorn & Co.," carry- 
ing on the same line of business on the corner of Washington and 
Rector Streets, retaining, however, their connection with the 
older firm. After the death of their father, two firms were formed, 
"Schermerhorn, Banker & Co.," at 243 Water Street, and "Scher- 
merhorn, Willis & Co.," at 53 South Street. 

From these firms Peter and Abraham Schermerhorn retired 
on . 

After his marriage, Peter Schermerhorn resided at 88 Green- 
wich Street in 1805, and 152 (S. W. Corner of Cortlandt Street) in 
the same street, in 1808. In 1815, he purchased No. 21 Park Place 
(then Robinson Street), extending through to Murray Street, 
which he continued to occupy until 1843, when he removed to a 
new house, built for himself, on the north-west corner of Great 

* Was this the former name of Hyde Park, or did Jacobus T. Stouten- 
burgh (closely connected, by marriage, with Peter Schermerhorn, senior) own 
property at Hyde Park, on which the latter may have found refuge during the 
war ? A family of that name owned largely at Hyde Park. 

t John Jones married Eleanor Colford.

Jones Street and Lafayette Place. There he continued to reside 
until his death. 

Soon after his marriage, he erected a summer residence on the 
banks of the East River, at the foot of 67th Street, upon a portion 
of the "Louvre Farm," the country seat of his father-in-law, John 

The "Louvre Farm," of 132 acres, extended from 3rd Avenue 
to the East River, and from 66th Street to 75th Street. After the 
death of John Jones, the "Farm" was partitioned among his chil- 
dren, Division No. 1 falling to the lot of his daughter Sarah, wife 
of Peter Schermerhorn. This was the division nearest to the 
City, and included the summer residence above mentioned. Ad- 
joining it, on the south, lay the "Hardenbrook Farm," of about 20 
acres, between 64th Street and 66th Street, 3rd Avenue and East 
River. This Peter Schermerhorn purchased, in 1818, from the 
heirs of John Hardenbrook, and, adding it to his wife's share of 
the "Louvre Farm," gave to the whole name "Belmont Farm." 
He at once removed to the Hardenbrook house, at the foot of 64th 
Street, in which house he died. 

Peter Schermerhorn was elected to the Vestry of Grace Church 
in 1820, and one of the Wardens in 1845, which position he retained 
until his death. He was one of the Building Committee under 
whose superintendence the new church and rectory on Broadway, 
near 10th Street, were erected and completed in 1846, taking an 
active part in all the arrangements whereby the transfer of the 
church, from its original site on Broadway, at Rector Street, was 

He was elected a Director of the Bank of New York in 18 14, 
and so continued until his decease. 

He died in the "Hardenbrook" house, above mentioned, on 
June 23, 1852. His wife died at No. 8 Great Jones Street, on April 
28, 1845. Children of Peter Schermerhorn:

3. The mother of Cary ' and Mary Throop, (b. Aug. u, 1754, 
m Rev. Stephen Tracy), was Sarah Huntington, second wife of 
Capt. Dan ' Throop, as is shown by her will at Norwich, 1791. 

At the breaking out of the Revolution the descendants of 
William ' Throope were still nourishing in Bristol; descendants 
of his son, Deacon John, had established themselves in Provi- 
dence, Woodstock, Conn., and in Vermont, while the descendants 
of Capt. William 2 and Capt. Dan a had become a clan at Lebanon, 
Conn., whence they scattered to Nova Scotia, New Haven, Litch- 
field, and New York. The descendants of Thomas remained in 
Bristol until after 1775, when some branches went to Georgia, 
Europe, and the West. Descendants of each branch claim Scrope 

Descendants of Capt. Dan * Throop. 

Capt. Dan * Throop, b. April 19, 1740, son of Capt. Dan * and

dau. of Deacon Ephraim and Hannah (Eggleston) Terry. He 
was Capt. of the 2nd Conn. Light Horse Cavalry in 1779, and 
closely associated with Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, Gov. Hunting- 
ton, and William Williams, who signed the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence. His residence in Lebanon is still standing, and was a 
centre of influence in the days of the Revolution. It stands on 
the old road to the railroad station, and was held by descendants 
until very recently. His commission as Capt. is owned by his 
great-granddau., Mrs. W. L. L. Spencer, of Lebanon. It bears the 
signature of Gov. Trumbull. Capt. John Terry was, for a time, 
in Nova Scotia, and was prominent in the Revolution. (See 
Terry Genealogy.) 

The epitaph of Deacon Ephraim Terry, in the oldest cemetery 
at Lebanon, is as follows: 

" Here lies ye body of Dea Ephraim Terry, who many years 
faithfully served ye 1st Church in Lebanon in that office. A pious, 
cheerful, charitable christian, holding the mistery of faith in a

'9°5-] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. 2 1 3 


By Edwin A Hill, Ph.D. 

Historian Conn. Society and Secretary Dist. of Columbia Soc. of Mayflower 
Descendants. / 

About three years ago, Mr. George Ernest Bowman in his 
article, "The Only Mayflower Gravestone " {Mayflower Descend* 
ant, III, 193, 201), called attention to the very interesting facts 
that Richard More of the Mayflower was buried in Salem, Mass., 
and did not, as supposed, change his name to Richard Mann; 
that his was the only known gravestone of a Mayflower pas- 
senger in existence, and that in all probability he was the last 
living male survivor of the Mayflower pilgrims who embarked in 
England. I propose in this paper to trace his ancestry and 
show that he was baptized in the year 1614, in the parish of Ship- 
ton, Co. Salop (or Shropshire), England, and that therefore, the 
hitherto unknown year of his death was either 1698 or 1699; that 
he was not as has been sometimes surmised a mere waif, picked 
up in the streets of London (Azel Ames, The Mayflower and her 
Log, p. 1557), but was descended from the well known English 
county family of More of that parish, seated there or thereabouts 
from the time of the Norman invasion, bearing coat armor, and 
with a pedigree tracing back to Richard de la More, one of the 
nobles killed at the battle of Hastings while fighting for William 
the Conqueror. 

To detail at this time the steps by which I was led to 
these important and interesting discoveries, would lead too far 
afield; suffice it to say that while examining the recently printed 
Registers of this parish, I was at once impressed by the frequent 
recurrence of the names of Jasper, Ellen, and Richard More. 
Here (it immediately occurred to me) I shall probably find 
the baptismal records of the three well known More children of 
the Mayflower band, and such indeed proved to be the case for I 
very soon found, at page 20 of the Registers the following record 
in latin: " 1614, Nov. 13, Richardus moore filius Samuelis moore 
de Larden et uxoris eius bapt." This date agrees exactly with 
our Richard More's affidavit of Sept. 27, 1684 {Mayflower De- 
scendant; III, 194-5, etc.), in which he describes himself as "aged 
seaventy yeares or thereabouts;" to be exact this affidavit was 
sworn to just 70 years, 1 month and 17 days after the baptism of 
Richard, son of Samuel More of Larden, as per Shipton registers. 

It is true that in four other affidavits of dates April 1, July 12, 
Sept. 29, and Nov. 25, 1690, he gives his ageas about 78 years, 
which would make the year of his birth 1612, instead of 1614; but 
it is evident that a mistake of about two years has in some way 

214 The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. [Julyi 

been made in one or more of these affidavits, probably in the four 
of later date (which as Mr. Bowman points out are inconsistent with 
the former) and that the affidavit of 1684 is correct and the others 
are in error. Ames (loc. cit., p. 166) apparently takes this view 
of the case. Presumptively the statement of a man 70 years old 
as to his age, should be rather more trustworthy than the state- 
ment of the same man 6 years later. At that age 6 years makes 
a very much greater difference in the mental condition than it 
does in middle life. 

My next discovery confirming this indentification of Richard 
was of course the baptismal records of the other two children, 
Ellen and Jasper, which were readily found and are as follows, 
viz.: " 1612, May 24, Ellinora moore filia Samuelismore de larden 
et uxoris eius bapt.," page 20. "1613, Aug. 8, Jasperus Moore 
Alius Samuelis moore de Larden Generosi bapt.," page 20, and 
also the baptism of an hitherto unknown sister, viz.: " 1616, April 
16, Maria moore filia Samuelis more et Caterinae uxoris eius de 
larden bapt.," page 21. 

This additional record is of particular value because it dis- 
closes the name, Catherine, of the mother of the More children. 
My preliminary notice of these discoveries appeared at page 256 
of the Mayflower Descendant for November, 1903, and in com- 
menting thereon Mr. Bowman, the editor, remarks that he con- 
siders the indentification fully established. Further search 
failed to reveal any baptismal record of the fourth child, the 
brother referred to but not named by Bradford as having been 
"put" to Elder Brewster with his brother Richard and as having 
" dyed the first winter," who was probably born elsewhere either 
after 16 16 or before 161 2, but it did, however, disclose the record 
of the marriage of the parents, the same being as follows: "1610, 
Feby. 4, Samuell moore Generosus accepit de Katerinam Moore 
de Larden In Forma Juris Mar." page 19. 

The natural inference that the father married a cousin of his 
own name is fully sustained by the direct statements to that 
effect in the English pedigrees that will be hereafter cited. The 
ancestry of the father Samuel More on the one hand could not 
be traced on the Shipton Registers but on the other hand the 
ancestry of the wife Katherine More of Larden was easily carried 
back two generations to her grandfather Thomas More, Gent., of 
Larden Hall in Shipton. These Registers are published as vol- 
ume 22 of the Parish Register Society Series, being edited by 
Rev. Gilbert H. F. Vane in 1898. In his preface he states that 
Shipton parish is a donative in the gift of Robert Jasper More, 
Esq., M. P., of Linley Hall and Larden Hall, Shropshire, the 
present representative of the family. With these clues in hand, 
the next step was obviously an examination of Burke's Lajided 
Gentry, and accordingly at page 1427 of the 1894 edition (Vol. 2), 
I found a full pedigree of the family reaching back to the time 
of the Norman invasion and mentioning the father Samuel More 
and his first marriage to his cousin Catherine. I then naturally 
referred to the Visitation of Shropshire (Harleian Society, Vol. 
29), and at pages 364 to 366, found again another pedigree of the 

1905.] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. 21$' 

family, substantially agreeing with Burke, though giving some 
details omitted by him. An exceedingly interesting develop- 
ment from an examination of these authorities was the identifi- 
cation of Samuel More, the father of our Capt. Richard of Salem, 
with Samuel More, the well known soldier of the Parliamentary 
Cause against King Charles I {Dictionary of National Bio- 
graphy, Vol. 38, page 427), at once suggesting some plausible 
reasons why we find his children in the Mayflower company; but 
of that later. 

The following genealogy from Richard the Norman Noble, is 
based then on these authorities, viz.: 

Burke's Landed Gentry, ed. 1894, Vol. 2, page 1427, referred to 
as Burke. 

Visitation of Shropshire, in Harleian Society, Vol. 29, pages 
364-6, referred to as Vis. 

Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. 38, referred to as Biog. 

Registers of Shipton, Shropshire Parish Register Soc, Vol. 22, 
referred to as Reg. 

To the best of my knowledge we have here the first case of 
a Mayflower ancestry which is conclusively proved back to the 
time of William the Conqueror, and also the first case of a right 
to coat armour among the Mayflower pilgrims fully proved by 
Heraldic Visitations. Mr. F. Apthorp Foster, in his article " May- 
flower Passengers and Coat Armour" (Mayflower Descendant, II, 
page 161), has written thus: " Now who, if any, of the Mayflower 
passengers were rightfully possessed of Coats-of-Arms, which 
their male descendants are to-day fairly entitled to by the rules 
mentioned in a previous paragraph ? The answer, based upon 
present knowledge is a short one, none." That Richard More is 
distinguished among all the other passengers by the fact that he 
only has his last resting place marked out by an existing tomb- 
stone, and that he is the first one of the passengers to have his 
right fully proved to coat armour makes him a very interesting 
smbject of research.

Syi years old when the Mayflower sailed.

pears on the Shipton registers; he was probably bap- 
tized elsewhere either before 1612 or after 1616. 

The baptism of Maria (No. 58 above), is the last entry relating 
to Samuel the father that occurs on the Shipton registers. Where 
the third son was baptized, when and where his wife Catherine 
was buried, when, where and whom he married as his second 
wife, I have not yet ascertained. The authorities state that 
having had three children by his first wife, Katherine, without 
giving their names, or telling us what became of them, that he 
then as shown below had issue by a second wife, whose name 
and date of marriage they do not give. As Richard (by the 
second wife) was the eldest of these later children and was born 
in 1627 (see Burke's Landed Gentry, Ed. 1898, Vol. I, page 1059), 
the marriage probably took place not later than 1626 and without 
doubt the first wife, Katherine, d. prior to 1620 when the May- 
flower sailed for Plymouth. Burke (as above cited) gives the 
following as the issue of the second marriage. (The dates indi- 
cate that there is probably some other register extant containing 
records of this family): 

60 Richard, his heir, b. 1627. 

61 Thomas, b. 1628; an M. D.; d. unm. 1697, aet. 69.

It will be noted that Col. Samuel the Parliamentarian, had 
two sons each named Richard, who each lived to maturity — first 
Richard of the Mayflower by the first wife, bap. as per Shipton 
registers in 1614, and Richard who succeeded to the estates in 
England, b. according to the English pedigree of Burke in 1627, 
and by the second wife. Such cases while not common are not 
unknown. We have for example the well known case in the 
Lay family of Saybrook, Conn., of the two John Lays, Jr., both 
sons of the first John Lay, both residing in New England and 
both named in their father's will, one being the child of the first 
and the other of the second wife, and other instances of this are 
known both in the colonies and in England.

Who Was Philip White t [July, 


Bv the Rev. William White Hance. 

" Up goes Huddy for Phil White," was on the label attached 
to the breast of the Patriot Captain Joshua Huddy of Tom's 
River, N. J., delivered from prison in New York to Captain 
Richard Lippincott of the Refugees, and by him hung at the 
Highlands, Monmouth Co., N. J., April 12th, 1782. But that was 
not the end. General Washington notified the British Com- 
mander that unless the perpetrator of this bloody deed was 
given up for execution it was his intention to retaliate. And 
Captain Charles Asgill was the unfortunate one on whom the lot 
fell to suffer in place of Huddy's executioner. Happily the 
efforts of his mother and of influential friends saved the life of 
this innocent young member of a noble English family, and he 
was allowed to return to his home in safety. Captain Lippin- 
cott, after the Revolution, went also to England, and later on, 
with other Loyalists expatriated himself to Canada, and died at 
Toronto, May 14th, 1826, in the 82d year of his age. The recol- 
lection of the patriotic services of Captain Huddy, " a victim sac- 
rificed for American liberty," soon passed away. While Philip 
White sleeps in an unmarked — an unknown — grave, and it has 
been sought to give his name to one who had no existence. 

After Sabine in his History of the Loyalists had issued the 
first edition of that book he received a letter, dated Dec. 5, 1849, 
from George Taylor Denison, Jr., a grandson of Captain Lippin- 
cott, in which he tried to defend the acts and character of his 
grandfather, and definitely asserted that " Philip White was half- 
brother to his (Lippincott's) wife." Especially interested in the 
White families of Monmouth Co., and attracted by so plain a 
statement made by one supposedly in a position to know, I have 
tried to find proof of the relationship thus expressed. Two 
things, at first sight, make it look plausible, and seem to have 
led Denison astray in his assertion. First, the mother of Cap- 
tain Lippincott's wife did marry a White, it being a second mar- 
riage for each of them. Second, Denison had in his possession a 
Bible which contained entries of the death of this Amos White, 
of Esther White his wife, of Jeremiah Borden her first husband, 
and also the dates of birth of the five children born to Jeremiah 
and Esther Borden. But Amos and Esther are the names of the 
only Whites mentioned. 

Not only does this old Bible fail to account for Philip White's 
birth or death, but Amos White, his putative father, in his will 
dated Dec. 2, 1770, mentions Esther his wife, and the six children 
that had been born to him by his first wife, but does not in any 
way refer to issue by the second marriage. Furthermore, all 
of these six children were married at the time he made his will, 
and one of them was deceased leaving children who had them- 

i<?os.] Who Was Philip White? 221 

selves married in 1767 and 1768, in other words only six and 
seven years respectively later than their grandfather had mar- 
ried the widow Esther Borden. It is not usual to say the least 
to find a man with child or children so much younger than his 
grandchildren as would thus be indicated. 

As Philip White was killed March 30, 1782, he would not have 
been twenty years of age if Amos and Esther White were his 
parents, for they were not married until Dec. 17, 1761. This 
agrees better with our knowledge concerning the youthfulness of 
those who were on the patriot side, than it does with the data we 
have of those who were among the King's troops. It does not 
at all coincide with a sure indication to be found in Barker and 
Howe's Historical Collections of the State of New Jersey, where, 
on page 366, it says, " The following circumstances, relating to 
the death of White, were obtained principally by conversation 
with a highly respectable gentleman, a soldier of the Revolution, 
now (June, 1844) a resident of this township. White, the refugee, 
was a carpenter, and served his time in Shrewsbury." Since an 
apprenticeship did not expire until one reached his majority, we 
learn from this that Philip White was more than twenty-one 
years of age at the time of his death, and could not therefore 
have been the half-brother of Esther (Tilton-Borden) Lippincott. 

Over against Denison's statement in 1849, and the tradition 
handed down upon it in his family, we have the equally explicit 
statement of the Revolutionary soldier in 1844 who probably 
knew Philip White personally, and the tradition, as it obtains to- 
day in the family of another Loyalist family of St. Johns, N. B., 
" My grandfather, William White, born Oct. 25, 1759, was a 
brother of the Philip White who was killed near Freehold, N. J., 
in 1782." How much force this tradition carries with it, can 
easily be seen by knowing that William White named the child 
born to him on the 19th of Sept., 1782, Philip; and two years 
afterwards wrote his brother Benjamin, living in Massachusetts, 
" I have one boy living who is named after our brother Philip." 
Benjamin likewise, on the first opportunity he had, gave the 
same name to the boy born him Sept. 23, 1783. But these 
brothers, one in Canada the other in Massachusetts, had still 
another brother John, who did not remove from Monmouth Co., 
N. J., and one of John's granddaughters, with a memory that I 
tested and found to be remarkably accurate in every particular, 
told me personally two years ago, that her grandfather John and 
the said Philip were brothers. 

The pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Shrewsbury, N. J., 
signed his name to the following: "This may Certifie all such as 
it may Concern that Philip White & Jane Miers have been La- 
fully Joined in holy Matrimony by me October ye 29 1773 — 
Charles Macknight." 

And the owner of that certificate, a great-grandchild of Jane 
Miers by a later marriage, says, " I also have what appears to be 
a record of the births of two children of the above named Philip 
White, to wit: John White, born Dec. 8, 1772, and Susannah 
White, born March 6, 1775." 
1 6a 

2 22 The King Family in England. [July, 

Philip White does not appear to have owned any real estate 
at the time of his death. There are several deeds on record at 
Freehold, N. J., in which the above John White, to distinguish 
himself from all others of the name, called himself or is called, 
"John, the son of Philip White." One in particular, to be found 
in Liber "Q," folio 704, dated April 4th, 1807, relates that "John 
White, the son of Philip and Slocom Van Dyke and Susannah his 
wife," convey land which they claimed to hold the title to by 
virtue of the will of Isaac Van Dyke. It has yet to be learned 
whether Susannah Van Dyke was the aunt or the half-sister of 
the said John. But the date of John's birth, in connection with 
that of Philip's marriage to Jane Miers, would indicate that 
Philip had been born as early as 1752, and accordingly would 
have been at least 30 years old when he died. 

Indisputable evidence can be produced to show that Benja- 
min, born 1749, Philip (born presumably as early as 1752), Wil- 
liam, born 1759, John and Susan White were all children of Peter 
and Huldah (Tabor) White, whose marriage license was issued 
Jan. 22, 1747. 

Since Huldah Tabor was the daughter of Philip and Susan- 
nah Tabor, she was but carrying out the custom of her time 
when she named two of her eldest children after her own parents, 
Susannah after her mother and Philip after her father. And it 
would therefore, seem to be most evident that Mr. Denison was 
mistaken when he stated that the only Philip White of that gen- 
eration anywhere spoken of, or referred to, except by Sabine and 
those who, from him, quote Mr. Denison's letter, " was half- 
brother to the wife of Captain Lippincott," and accordingly the 
son of Amos and Esther White. No fair minded judge would 
hesitate to say that Philip White who was killed March 30, 1782, 
was one of the oldest children of Peter and Huldah (Tabor) 
White, if he was not actually their first-born.

In the course of a prolonged search in the Prerogative Court 
of Canterbury, at Somerset House, London, for the English an- 
cestry of Clement King, of Marshfield, and later of Providence, 
Rhode Island, many King wills were examined and transcribed. 
In view of the fact that the descendants of Clement King are still 
living in the State of Rhode Island, and that several important 
branches of that King family are to be found in the State of New 
York, these odd King wills are herewith presented as of possible 
interest to those of the King name who are searching for a link 
to connect their American line with the ancient English stock. 
There are many hundreds of King wills to be found in the Pro- 
bate Courts of England from 1550-1650, and the church records 
of the counties of Buckingham, Kent, Surrey and Hertford con- 

I9°50 The King Family in England. 223 

tain thousands of entries relative to the King name. While it 
was impossible to examine all of the wills indexed, the search was 
zealously made in the hope of finding- some King will which 
would give a clue to one or more generations antecedent to that 
of Ralph King, of Watford, Herts, the established ancestor of 
Clement King of Marshfield, and Daniel King of Lynn, Mass. 

The following extracts of King wills may prove of value.

We have already called attention to the movement to establish in the 
United States a historical commission composed of leading historical students 
of this country under whose direction a modest annual appropriation shall be 
employed in procuring references, abstracts of, or copies from the public 
archives and important private manuscript collections of the mother countries 
of Europe, and also of the United States, bearing upon American history, the 
results to be issued in series from time to time by the government printer. 
Some of the older states, notably Massachusetts, New York and New Hamp- 
shire, have at different times done something in this direction, but it is evident 
that such work can be more easily done by the United States through a national 
commission empowered to deal with other governments. 

The possibilities of such a commission are very great. It might, for in- 
stance, be able to procure in Paris the details of the French co-operation in our 
Revolution as well as information pertaining to the old wars with France — 
material which should interest our military students, or procure data in Lon- 
don, Amsterdam and Madrid, concerning the early colonization of this country, 
which might be of interest to our State historians. But it is the possibilities 
with regard to the cause of genealogy that awakens our liveliest interest in the 
establishment of this commission. There must be priceless genealogical 
material in the shape of original records to be dug out of the utterly forgotten 
ecclesiastical dust heaps of England which could throw light upon the perse- 
cutions of Archbishop Laud and the flight of leading Puritans, such as John 
Wilson and Thomas Hooker, which led to the founding of Boston and Cam- 
bridge, of Hartford and the Connecticut Colony. There must be stores of 
passenger lists lying in the mouldy vaults of English custom houses, or in 
other places, which, if examined, could tell us when some of our forefathers 
sailed for America and the ports from whence they sailed. In Holland there 
should be long buried records, which, if unearthed, would enable us to deter- 
mine the antecedents of many of the settlers of Fort Orange and New Amster- 
dam. In Ireland, also, there might be found material by which we could trace 
the ancestry of many of the Scotch-Irish emigrants of the Eighteenth century 
who settled in almost every one of the thirteen colonies. Surely genealogical 
students have reason to wish for the establishment of this commission and to 
work for its creation. 


Romeyn, Hiram Radcliff, a former member of the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society, died Dec. 27, 1004, at his residence, 50 East 
Sixty-sixth Street, New York, aged seventy-six years. He was born in 1828 at 
Kingston, N. Y., and was the son of John T. Romeyn and Catherine Radcliff

both of Kingston, N. Y. His grandfather, Jeremiah Romeyn, was the son of 
Nicholas, who was the fourth in descent (Nicholas, 4 John, 3 Class Kuper, 5 Janse ') 
from Janse Romeyn, who came from Holland to New Amsterdam in 1660. 

Mr. Romeyn was educated at Kingston Academy. He removed in 1865 
from Kingston to New York, where he successfully engaged in the tea trade 
until a few years ago, when he retired from business. He was married to 
Emma A. Langworthy, daughter of William and Emma (Abbey) Langworthy, 
who died in 1885, leaving one child, Charles W. Romeyn, who survives his 

Jones, John Henry, a member of the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society, died Jan. I, 1905, in New York City, aged fifty-three years. 
He was born Dec. 27, 1851, at Cold Spring Harbor, L. I., and was the son of 
Samuel A. Jones and Mary Esther Mott, daughter of James W. Mott and 
Abigail Jones. His father was the son of John Henry Jones and Loretta Hew- 
lett, daughter of Judge Divine Hewlett by his wife Anna, daughter of Jacob 
Coles; who was the son of John Jones and Hannah Hewlett, daughter of John 
Hewlett by his wife Sarah Townsend; who was the son of William Jones and 
Phoebe Jackson, daughter of the second Col. John Jackson of Jamestown, L. L.; 
who was the son of Major Thomas Jones of Oyster Bay, L. I. Major Jones was 
in the battle of the Boyne under James II in 1690; was at Port Royal in the 
island of Jamaica in 1692; in 1693 he was in Rhode Island, where in 1695 he 
married Freelove, daughter of Capt. Thomas Townsend, and after his marriage 
settled in Oyster Bay. On his mother's side he was also descended from Major 
Thomas Jones, his maternal grandmother, Abigail Jones, being the daughter of 
Walter Jones; who was the son of William Jones, and grandson of Major 
Thomas Jones of Oyster Bay, L. I. 

After attending school in his native place and a military academy at Ossin- 
ing, Mr. Jones entered, in 1869, the office of his uncle Townsend Jones in New 
York City, who was the head of the firm of Jones, Underhill and Scudder, 
auctioneers, at No. 7 Greene Street. Here he remained through several changes 
of the firm until, as a partner, he withdrew in 1894 and settled upon his father's 
place in Cold Spring Harbor, where he devoted himself to the early history of 
Long Island and the Jones' s Genealogy, which latter work was practically 
finished at the time of his death. " Had his life been spared until threescore 
years and ten, his researches and his indefatigable industry would have added 
much to what is known of the early history of Long Island. Mr. Jones endeared 
himself to every one who knew him. Kind-hearted, sympathetic and generous 
to a fault, no man in his native place was more beloved than he by people in 
humble life." 

John Henry Jones married (1) Oct. 2, 1879, Nora Jarvis, daughter of Henry 
G. Scudder; (2) June 8, 1890, Helen Folsom, daughter of the Rev. E. Folsom 
Baker of Cold Spring Harbor, by his wife Sarah Augusta, daughter of the 
Hon. Arnold Beach Watson of Unadilla, N. Y., who survives him. 

Cone, Edward Payson, a member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, died Jan. 23, 1905, at his residence in New York City, aged 
seventy years. He was born March 4, 1835, in West Granby, Conn., and was 
the son of Silas Cone and Sarah Hayes. His ancestor, Daniel Cone, came from 
Edinborough, Scotland, to Massachusetts, in 165 1; married Mehitable, daughter 
of Jared Spencer of Lynn, Mass., and later, together with his wife and family, 
removed to Haddam, Conn. His great grandfather, son of Caleb and grandson 
of the first Daniel, was a soldier at Louisburg during the French and Indian 
war, and afterward was at Ticonderoga during the war of the Revolution. His 
grandfather, Daniel Hurlbut Cone, was also a Revolutionary soldier. He 
marched to Boston at the Lexington alarm; served, it is said, during the entire 
war, and drew a pension until his death in 1842, aged eighty-eight years. 

He began his business career in East Haddam, Conn., and afterward went 
into the publishing business in Tennessee. At the outbreak of the Civil War 
he was fearless in expressing his views in behalf of the Union, and cast the only 
vote in his precinct against the ordinance of secession in June, 1861. Being in 

I9°5-J Obituary. 229 

great danger from refusing to recognize the authority of the vigilance commit- 
tee, he effected his escape from the state to Louisville, Ky., where he remained 
until the fall of Fort Donelson, and then returned with Andrew Johnson, who 
had been appointed military governor of Tennessee, and received the appoint- 
ment of assistant postmaster at Nashville. At the time of Bragg's invasion, and 
when Forrest's cavalry was almost in sight of Nashville, he raised a military 
company for the defence of the city. He was also secretary of the two recon- 
struction conventions called to reorganize the state, and rendered effective 
service in other ways to the state of Tennessee during this stormy period. After- 
ward he removed to New York City, and became connected with the manage- 
ment of the New York Ledger, to the success of which his good judgment 
largely contributed. Since July, 1002, he had been secretary and treasurer of 
the Black Diamond Anthracite Coal Co., at 100 Broadway. 

Mr. Cone was one of the earliest members of the Sons of the American 
Revolution, his number being 53, and he ever manifested a deep interest in the 
welfare of this organization and in the promotion of the spirit or patriotism. A 
few years ago he presented to each of the two-hundred and forty departments 
of the public schools of New York City, a large photogravure of Stuart's Athen- 
aeum portrait of Washington, massively framed, and bearing the seal of the 
Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. He was a comrade of the John 
A. Dix Post, G. A. R., councilor general of the order of Founders and Patriots 
of America, member of the New England Society, the New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Society, and of the Lotos, Press and Twilight Clubs. He was 
a member of the Manhattan Congregational Church, of which he was one of the 
deacons, and with which he had been identified from its beginning. " Of a 
sunny and enthusiastic disposition, he gave himself with his whole heart to 
every cause that opened to him." 

Edward Payson Cone was married in 1861 to Anna Maud Roche of Boston, 
a descendant of the family of de la Roche of La Vendee, France, and daughter 
of William Roche and Margaret Hearn, both of Boston, Mass. His widow 
and four sons — Andrew, William Cassett, Edward Silas and Frederick Hayes — 
survive him. 

Parsons, William Henry, member of the New York Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, died Feb. 17, 1905, at Palm Beach, Fla., whither he had 
gone from his home in Rye, N. Y., aged seventy-three years. He was born 
July 7, 1831, on Staten Island, and was the son of Edward Lamb Parsons, of an 
old English family which had long been settled in Warwickshire, who came to 
America when a young man and became a reputable merchant in New York 
City. His mother was Matilda Clark, daughter of Ebenezer Clark, who was 
born in Wallingford, Conn., June 15, 1769, and after a successful business 
career in New York settled at Rye, N. Y., in 1821, where he built the house 
which is known to-day as " Brookside," and which was the residence of William 
H. Parsons. 

He was educated at Rye, N. Y. In 1853, when twenty-two years of age, he 
began his business career in the paper trade, with which he was ever after con- 
nected, and in which he rapidly attained prominence and success, by entering 
the house of Buchanan & Kilmer, and in the following year became a partner 
in this firm, then newly organized as Cheesborough, Buchanan & Co. He re- 
mained with this firm through several changes in the firm style, until he became 
the head of the house under the style of Wm. H. Parsons & Co., of New York 
City, and had taken his two sons, W. H. Parsons, Jr., and Marselis Parsons into 
partnership with him. He retired from active business life in Dec, 1904, when 
his sons formed a partnership as Parsons Brothers, representing the American 
Writing Paper Company of Holyoke, Mass., and his other large interests were 
sold to David S. Cowles, his son-in-law, and F. C. Whitehouse. 

Mr. Parsons was a pioneer in the establishment of the sulphide fibre indus- 
try in the United 'States. He became a stockholder and director in the American 
Sulphide Fibre Company, and after a tour of investigation in Europe, organized 
the Barclay Fibre Company and built a mill at Saugerties, N. Y. Afterward be 
held controlling interests in the Bowdoin Paper Manufacturing Company, 
Brunswick, Me., the Lisbon Falls Fibre Company, Lisbon Falls, Me., and the 

23O Correction, Reply. [July, 

Pejepscot Paper Company, Pejepscot, Me. Besides caring for these large 
business interests, he was president of the American Paper and Pulp Associa- 
tion from 1884 to 1886, was a member of the New York Chamber of Commerce, 
president of the National League for the Protection of American Institutions, a 
director and vice-president of the New York Board of Trade and Transporta- 
tion, trustee of the Bowery Savings Bank, one of the founders and president of 
the Rye National Bank, and trustee for the Westchester Temporary Home at 
White Plains for the reform of wayward boys. He was a member of the Union 
League, Metropolitan, City, and the American and Atlantic Yacht Clubs; was 
also a member of the American Geographical Society, New York Zoological 
Society, American Asiatic Society, New York Society of Horticulture, Metro- 
politan Museum of Art, the Armstrong Association for the Education of the 
Negro Race in the South, and a director of the Society for the Prevention of 
Cruelty to Animals. 

He was a prominent layman of the Presbyterian Church in this country. 
He served for awhile as moderator of the Westchester Presbytery, was presi- 
dent of the Westchester Bible Society, and for twenty years was superintendent 
of the Presbyterian Sunday School in Rye. He was deeply interested in the 
welfare of the village in which he had made his home, and at the time of his 
death was serving as the first president of the new village of Rye, having been 
elected unanimously to this position about a year ago, and being constrained to 
take the office at the urgent wishes of the entire community. His death was 
largely due to his acceptance of this position and to his fidelity in the discharge 
of the duties of the office when crippled in physical health. " He gave himself 
entirely to his constituents, throwing aside all thoughts of self preservation, 
dying as he had lived, a truly public spirited citizen." 

William Henry Parsons was married (1) to Laura Cecilia Palmer, daughter 
of John and Harriet Palmer of New York, and granddaughter of Judge Palmer 
of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, by whom he had five children. She 
died in 1893, and he married (2) Sarah Ely, one of the founders of the well- 
known seminary for young women in New York City, and daughter of Col. 
George B. and Caroline (Boies) Ely, who survives him. He leaves also three 
children by his first wife; William Henry Parsons, Jr. of Glen Cove, L. I.; 
Marselis Clark Parsons of Rye, N. Y., and Matilda Parsons, wife of David S. 
Cowles of Rye, N. Y.

Het Brabantsche en het Geldersche geslacht Van Vlierden. 
C. P. J. Van Vlierden. Arnhem. 1904. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 86. 

This genealogy, written in Dutch, carries the family back to the year 1227. 
Its special interest to Americans lies in the fact that Rev. Petrus Van Vlierden, 
the last minister coming to this country from Holland, until the recent emigra- 
tion in 1847, was a branch of this stock. Rev. Mr. Van Vlierden settled at 
Catsbaan, New York, and left descendants in America.

This number treats of Woodruffs, of Fordwich, England; Southampton, 
Long Island; and Elizabethtown, Westfield, New Jersey. It opens with a map 
of the Mendham-Bernardsville neighborhood, showing the sites of family 
homesteads. A biographical sketch of Dr. Hezekiah Stiles Woodruff follows, 
with notes. The appendixes contain valuable memoranda on the various lines 
of maternal ancestry. This work is on sale at the New Jersey Historical So- 
ciety's Library, Newark. N. J., for the benefit of its book fund, and the price of 
all three parts together is one dollar.

lin, Mass., 1640-1800. Frederick H. Whitin. Reprint from Dedham Historical 
Register. Dedham. Transcript Press, 1905. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 28. 

A peculiarity of this family is that in the eight generations here presented, 
there are but nineteen males, of whom nine died young or without issue. The 
author traces the patronymic back to the Hundred Rolls of 1273, but of the 


234 Book Notices, f July, 

immediate English ancestry nothing is known. It is a pity that the compiler 
did not carry his family at least as far as 1850, for all genealogists will agree 
that the most difficult period for research is that between the Revolutionary 
War and 1825. The pamphlet is well printed and referenced, and has a good

pp. 201-240. 

This number contains pedigrees of Suckling, Nelson, Bolton, May, Ful- 
merston, Heyward, Wiseman, Carey, Kempe and Barrow. It is the editor's 
desire to make this work an exhaustive resume of the genealogy of the county, 
and to that end he not only gives us pedigrees, but adds to them copies of wills 
and other illuminative material, well printed and thoroughly referenced. 

John Crowe and His Descendants. Levi Crowell and Henry G. 
Crowell. New York. Thomas Y. Crowell & Co. 1903. 8vo, boards, pp. 109. 

The name Crowell was originally written Crowe, the change taking place 
as early as 1683-4, when Yelverton of that ilk signed his will Yelverton Crowell 
alias Crow. In the branch of the family under consideration, the patronymic 
seems to have been altered with John of the third generation. The compilers 
have a very pleasing way of separating children of the first and second wives, 
which saves the confusion so often caused. On the other hand, they do not 
trace the Crowell daughters beyond their marriages. This is unfortunate, for 
the family is of Plymouth Colony, and many Mayflower names appear therein. 

Shaw Records. A Memorial of Roger Shaw, 1 594-1661. Harriette 
E. Farwell. Bethel, Me. E. C. Bowler. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 435. 

Family tradition claims Scottish ancestry for this family, although the Ameri- 
can progenitor seems to have been born in London in 1594. He was an early 
settler of Cambridge, Mass., and Hampton, N. H., and was a man of promi- 
nence. It is refreshing to find in this book that the descendants of daughters 
are carried down to the third generation, for most genealogies ignore the female 
branches with exasperating unanimity. Two unlocated lines, those of John of 
Holderness, N. H., and Jonathan of Claremont, N. H., are also considered. 
The appendix contains copies of wills, and a number of poems by family poets. 
There is an excellent index, and the printing is good. There are a number of 

Memoranda of Stearns Family, including Records of many of 
the Descendants. Willard E. Stearns. Fitchburg. Sentinel Printing Co. 
1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. 173. 

In a prefatory note the compiler states that nearly all the persons named 
in the following pages are descendants of Isaac Stearns of Watertown, ihe 
others having his kinsman, Charles Stearns, for their ancestor. No genealogical 
arrangement of facts was contemplated or has been made, for various good 
reasons, but the index prevents any serious inconvenience, and the volume will 
be found of great assistance to those tracing a Stearns pedigree. 

The Printed Vital Records of Massachusetts, under the Act 
of 1902. Eben Putnam. Genealogical Magazine Reprint. 1005. 

The author makes a strong and well-founded plea for a literal transcript 
of the Massachusetts vital records, as against the form in use by the four 
Societies now publishing these records at the expense of the Commonwealth. 
The value of phraseology and context is so well known to practical workers, 
that it has been a source of wonder that the Massachusetts societies should be 
content with hashed-up records, for whose value we are left at the mercy of 
the judgment of unknown copyists. In difficult cases one must still go to the 
original records, a course wholly unnecessary when a literal and attested copy 
is made.

The compiler, a scholarly clergyman, spent leisure hours during a period 
of forty years, in the preparation of the work, and also had placed at his dis- 
posal extensive collections of material made by others. The result is a 
remarkable mass of data, perfectly arranged, which takes rank among the best 
American genealogies yet issued. The descendants of Isaac Cummings em- 
brace all, or nearly all, of the name in New England, except modern arrivals; 
and, in this work, nearly all of the branches of this parent stem are traced out 
so as to show exact connections, except that little effort has been made to 
gather names later than the eighth generation in America. Any man named 
Cummings, now of middle age, who can give particulars concerning his grand- 
father Cummings, is pretty sure to connect with this book, if he is of old New 
England stock. Incidental to his main purpose, the compiler collected frag- 
ments relating to many other Cummings families in different states, and this 
material is added to the main compilation, greatly enhancing the value of the 
volume. There are good indexes. The prices are: cloth, $6 ; three-quarter 
leather, $7 ; full morocco, gilt, $10. 

The Devon and Cornwall Record Society. Part I. Exeter, Eng- 
land. 1005. pp. 48+48+48. Annual subscription, 1 guinea. 

The initial number of the Society's publications contains three distinct 
parts, namely: Exeter Cathedral Register of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials; 
Parkham Parish Register (Ingle-Dredge Transcript); and Inquisitiones Post 
Mortem, Calendar for Cornwall and Devon. Simultaneous publication of these 
records is to be continued, with separate paging, in order that upon completion 
the parts can be bound in separate volumes. The register of Exeter Cathedral 
begins with a baptism in the year 1594. Ba/kham register has marriages as 
early as 1537, and baptisms in 1538. The publication promises to be most use- 
ful and valuable, and should be encouraged. Those interested should commu- 
nicate with W. U. Reynell-Upham, Hon. Secretary, Devon and'Coj-nwall 
Institution, Exeter. > •"■ «^ 

Ontario Historical Society, Papers and Records. Vol. VI. 
Toronto. 1905. 

This number contains a great deal of valuable historical material, including 
the records of the Lutheran Church in the County of Lennox, from 1793 to 
1832, Notes in the Early History of the County of Essex, and an Anderson 
genealogy from 1699 to 1896. One of the articles deserves some notice, as it 
contains a rather remarkable attack on the historical ability of Hon. Hugh 
Hastings, State Historian of New York. With its array of statements we shall 
leave Mr. Hastings to deal, should he see fit to do so. It should be noted, how- 
ever, that the author's attempt to exonerate and glorify Butler's Rangers goes 
a trifle too far. On page 108 he says: "It is well known now, despite the 
falsehoods of the old-time historians of the United States, that there was no 
massacre at Wyoming, 'save of strong men flying from a lost battle,' but not of 
prisoners or women and children, as is represented. Only one man was put to 
death after the surrender, and he was a deserter. These facts are amply proved 
by an American writer, William F. Peck, of Rochester, New York, in an article 
entitled 'Historical Fictions,' published in the Rochester Post Express, in 
April, 1894, reproduced in the Hamilton Spectator, May nth, 1894, and also by 
Colonel Cruickshank in his ' Butler's Rangers,' p. 49." We recommend to this 
author a perusal of the publications of the Wyoming Commemoration Associa- 
tion. It should be remembered that the bitter feeling of Americans against the 
border Tories arose because they allied themselves with the "merciless Indian 
savages," bringing this awful weapon of destruction, not upon strangers, but 
upon their old neighbors, friends and relations. One might also recall to the 


Book Notices. [July, 

minds of those too much inclined to criticise the good faith of our people that, 
at the close of the Revolutionary War, England abandoned her red allies, no 
mention of them was made in the treaty of peace, and these savage men, who 
had given their all in loyalty to their old covenant with England, would have 
been homeless fugitives but for Washington, whose humane policy led to the 
purchase of many Indian lands, and the setting apart of those reservations in 
Central and Western New York, where they now abide in peace. It was not 
till long afterwards that Brant, after persistent efforts, secured from the English 
government some return for their labors and losses. 

Walt Whitman. Isaac Hull Piatt. The Beacon Biographies. Boston, 
Small, Maynard & Co. 1904. 24 T, cloth, pp. 147. 

This little book endeavors to bring into compact form the significant events 
of a life whose work has been a source of much literary contention. The 
biographer, as is fitting, is thoroughly in sympathy with his subject, describing 
himself as an unqualified admirer. The Chronology, at the outset of the book, 
furnishes us with a ready reference to the salient events of Whitman's life, 
which the rest of the little work proceeds to dwell upon in a pleasing way. 

The Howard Genealogy. Descendants of John Howard of 
Bridgewater, Massachusetts, from 1643 TO '9°3- Heman Howard. 
Brockton, Mass. The Standard Printing Co. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. XVI+330. 

The introduction to the Howard Genealogy contains a brief history of 
Bridgewater, and accounts of the Howard Seminary and the Old Bridgewater 
Historical Society Building, with its alcove dedicated to the memory of John 
Howard. In working out his pedigrees the compiler numbers only those sons 
whose descendants he has been able to trace, and supplies the marriages and 
children of the daughters, without carrying them further. This is a pity, for 
owing to the remarkable number of soldiers and public officers in this family, 
the daughters' descendants might feel great pride in knowing their lines of 
of descent. The excellent foundation laid by the pioneers of the name has been 
well built upon, the present generations having produced Blanche Willis 
(Howard) Von Truffel, a well-known writer, Governor William Alanson How- 
ard of Dakota, Generals Charles Henry and Oliver Otis Howard, and Rev. 
Rowland Bailey Howard, member of the International Peace Congress in 
Rome, in 1892. The index is excellent, and blank pages are bound in the back 
for family records. 

Old Kittery and Her Families. Everett S. Stackpole. Lewiston, 
Me. Press of Lewiston Journal Co. 1903. 8vo, cloth, pp. 822. 

This volume is a thorough exposition of its title, containing, as its preface 
promises, such interesting matter as should make it most welcome to descen- 
dants of old families of Kittery. It does more than that, for its style is so 
agreeable, its illustrations and maps are so numerous and attractive, and there 
is so much space given to genealogy — about 530 pages, — that the book is of 
interest and value to many besides those for whom it was written. Amongst 
other valuable historical matter is a certificate from the Herald's College in 
London, showing the date and place of burial of Capt. John Mason, and reciting 
the names of his descendants for two generations. 

The Parish Register of Saint Peter's, New Kent County, Va.. 
from 1680 to 1787. Parish Record Series, No. 2. Published by The National 
Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Virginia. Richmond. 
William Ellis Jones. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 206. Price $5.00. 

This is the second parish register published by the Colonial Dames of Vir- 
ginia, the first being the Register of Christ Church Parish, Middlesex County, 
Va., from 1653 to 1812. The present volume is not uniform with the first, but has 
its own especial points of interest. New Kent County was formed from York 
in 1654, and included not only the present County of that name, but also the 
section of country now embraced in King William, King and Queen, Hanover, 

1905.] Book Notices. 237 

and all upwards to the heads of the Paraunkey and Mattapony rivers. In this 
County there were three early parishes, Saint Peter's covering all the country 
south of the York and Pamunkey. As New Kent County records were all 
destroyed in the burning of Richmond, the value of the present volume to the 
searcher of family records in Virginia can be readily appreciated, and the 
Colonial Dames should receive every encouragement in their patriotic work. 

History and Genealogy of the Stackpole Family. Everett S. 
Stackpole. Lewiston, Me. Press of Journal Company. N. D. 8vo, cloth, pp. 

The origin of this family appears to have been Welsh, for in Pembroke- 
shire there is a " Stack Rock," a column of stone near the mouth of an estuary 
anciently called Stack-pool. The first Norman settler, Sir Elidur, called him- 
self De Stackpool. The reputed tomb of this knight is to be seen in the ancient 
church of Stackpole-Elidyr, and is beautifully pictured in th'is book. The 
earliest American Stackpole is said to have come from Limerick, Ireland, 
where the family dwelt for many generations. The emigrant ancestor settled 
in Maine, and has numerous and worthy descendants. The military records of 
the Stackpoles and a list of the College Almuni of that name, follow the family 
genealogy. The illustrations are unusually good. 

Vital Record of Rhode Island, 1636-1650. First Series. Vol. XIV. 
Providence Gazette. — Deaths K to Z. Marriages A, B, C, 1762-1825. James 
N. Arnold. Providence. Narragansett Historical Publishing Company. 1905. 
Quarto, cloth, pp. CI+616. 

The period covered by this and the previous volume is the most difficult in 
American genealogy. Many causes contribute to this difficulty, from the 
ravages of war to the unsettled condition of public affairs. For some unknown 
reason, also, our ancestors were not careful to keep death records. The pro- 
portion in any book of vital records of births to deaths would lead a hasty 
observer to infer that our forefathers are immortal. It is truly satisfying, 
therefore, to learn from these invaluable volumes, not only when they died, but 
in the biographical details which accompany the death notices, to find Revolu- 
tionary and other public service, family history, and many quaint and 
fascinating glimpses of the past. These records concern people throughout 
the country and abroad, as the death notices are by no means confined to 
Rhode Islanders. It is very satisfactory to learn from the introduction that 
Mr. Arnold has received sufficient encouragement to lead him to continue to 
give us these biographical details, for he can hardly receive too much praise 
and appreciation for his invaluable researches. 

Records of the Court of Assistants of the Colony of the 
Massachusetts Bay, 1630-1692. Printed under the supervision of John 
Noble, Clerk of the Supreme Judicial Court. Vol. II. Boston. Published by 
the County of Suffolk. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 289. 

This part of the Record of the Court of Assistants covers the period from 
the settlement of the Colony to March 5, 1643-4, thus containing earlier records 
than those printed in Vol. I. It comprises a portion of the records recently 
discovered in the " Barlow Manuscript Copy," in the Boston Public Library, 
and is of great historical importance. The entries are literal copies of the 
originals. Aside from criminal cases, which,' of --jourse, are of most frequent 
mention, there are included the issue of military commissions, distributions of 
estates and disposal of minors, and the volume should be consulted by anyone 
tracing his ancestry to that period. The index is most comprehensive and 
valuable, being, as most indexes are not, a labor-saving device.

their King, and their ultimate fate. William Edgar Grumman, Hartford. 
Hartford Press. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 208. 

Beginning with a brief survey of the condition of colonial affairs at the 
outbreak of the Revolution, the author proceeds at once to an account of the 
early associations in Redding (then called Reading), for and against the Conti- 
nental Congress, giving the names of signers to the various documents. The 
narrative continues in a most interesting way, quoting liberally from contem- 
poraneous evidence, reciting lists of soldiers and their wounds and services, 
concluding with biographies of soldiers and patriots of the town and of the 
Loyalists. An unusual feature of the biographies is the attempt, whenever 
practicable, to trace family lines back to the emigrant progenitor, thus adding 
immensely to the genealogical value of the book. The illustrations are well 
chosen and the appearance of the volume is pleasing. 

History of Marshfield. Lysander Salmon Richards. Plymouth. The 
Memorial Press. 1901. 8vo, cloth, pp. 238. 

This volume possesses the distinction of being the first published history 
of Marshfield, although sketches of the town have appeared from time to time. 
Owing, perhaps, to the fact that a work on Marshfield genealogies had been 
printed, the author does not enter into family histories at all, but there are 
interesting sketches of Peregrine White, Edward Winslow and others, with 
pleasant accounts of manners and customs in colonial days. 

Historical Records of the Town of Cornwall, Litchfield 
County, Connecticut. Theodore S. Gold. Hartford. Hartford Press. 1904. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 489+23+35. 

This is the second edition, and contains all the printed matter found in the 
first, with correction of errors. There are valuable lists of soldiers, with bio- 
graphical notes concerning some of them; lists of representatives to the 
General Court; and a number of genealogies. The book is written in a pleasant 
reminiscent style, many anecdotes of the olden time having been found 
amongst the papers of Mr. Gold's father. 

A List of the Soldiers in the War of the Revolution from 
Worcester, Mass., with a record of their death and place of 
burial. Mary Cochrane Dodge. Worcester. Published by the Col. Timothy 
Bigelow Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution. 8vo, pamphlet, 
pp. 28. 

The compiler states that this list was first compiled from State Archives 
and a few other sources, after which came the difficult work of identifying the 
men, tracing them to various states, obtaining records of death, and locating 
graves. Experience in making out chapter records has no doubt shown the 
editors the need for an authentic compilation, and so we are the richer for this 
good effort in a direction usually overlooked. 

The Genealogy of the Descendants of Henry Kingsbury of 
Ipswich and Haverhill, Mass. From collections made by Frederick John 
Kingsbury, LL.D., edited with extensive additions by Mary Kingsbury Tal- 
cott. Hartford. Hartford Press. 1905. 8vo, cloth, pp. 732. 

This is one of the best of recent genealogies for thoroughness, clearness 
and workmanlike finish. An introductory treatise in the family name in Eng- 
land is accompanied by an ancient map of Suffolk and Essex, England. Ex- 
tracts from Parish Registers in these shires, with Kingsbury wills, coats-of- 
arms and other English data, well illustrated, will be found worthy of examin- 
ation. Henry Kingsbury of Haverhill, the first American ancestor, was at 
Ipswich in 1638. Facsimiles of his signature and those of three succeeding 
generations are shown. The compiler has divided the descendants of Henry 
1st into chapters, each headed by the name of one of his sons, but the individ- 
ual enumeration is not interrupted. There is an excellent index, and the illus- 
trations and other mechanical matters are well done. The family has its quota 
of famous men. The great orator, Hon. Daniel Webster, was descended from 

I 9°S-1 Accessions to the Library. 239 

Henry Kingsbury through his mother, Abigail Eastman, and the wife of 
our only living ex-President, Mrs. Frances Folsom Cleveland, is also decended 
from this same Kingsbury-Eastman line. Senator Eugene Hale of Maine; 
Gen. Charles P. Kingsbury of the Civil War; Hon. Andrew Kingsbury of Hart- 
ford, a Revolutionary soldier, afterwards Comptroller and Treasurer of the 
State; Mr. John Ward Dean, for a long time editor of The New England His- 
toric-Genealogical Register; and others too numerous to mention, were de- 
scended from this family. 

History of Capt. John Kathan, the first settler of Dummerston, Vt.- 
and his associates, and the VIoores, the Frosts, the Willards, allied by marriage 
to the Kathans. Also a partial account of William French and Daniel Haugh- 
ton, the first martyrs of the Revolution. By David L. Mansfield. Illustrated. 
Brattleboro. E. L. Hildreth & Co. 1902. 8vo, cloth, pp. xii+147. 

The title fully describes the contents af this book. The illustrations are 
mostly family portraits. There is an index of names, and the book is well 
printed and bound. 

Some Descendants of Samuel Comstock of Providence, R. I. 
Edited by C. B. Comstock. New York. The Knickerbocker Press. 1905. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 249. 

With true genealogical instinct, the compiler of this book has been very 
sparing of biography, but has gathered a mass of records that will prove of 
great interest and value to those of the Comstock name. The index gives the 
Christian names of all Comstocks but only the surnames of those not Corn- 
stocks. The book shows careful work and gives the name of place where 
births and deaths occur — an excellent feature — well printed and attractively 

Andrew Moore of Poquonock, Conn., and His Descendants. By 
Hon. Horace L. Moore. Lawrence, Kansas. Journal Publishing Co. 1903. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 308. '/ 

The compiler traces the descendants of Andrew Moore, who was first men- 
tioned as of Poquonock, Conn., in 1636, down through eleven generations, 
including collateral lines, and has crowded a vast number of records into few 
pages, the names in index numbering nearly 8,000. Many family portraits 
appear, and also a list of subscribers to the book. 

Books in Preparation.

and Barnstable is in course of preparation. Correspondence with all members 
of the family is earnestly solicited by Mr. Arthur Ellsworth Linnell, Wollaston

Vol. XXXVI. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1905. No. 4. 


By Alphonso Trumpbour Clearwater, LL. D. 

Thomas Grier Evans, the seventh President of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, was born of distinguished 
ancestry at Kingston, in Ulster County, New York, on the twen- 
ty-second day of October, 1852, and died at his home at New 
Brighton, Staten Island, on the twenty-eighth day of March, 
1905. He was the son of Mary DeWitt and James Sidney Evans, 
and a descendant of John Evans who settled in Cecil County, 
Maryland, in 17 15. His grandfather, Dr. Thomas Grubb Evans 
was born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, in 1789, studied medi- 
cine in the City of New York, and settled in Goshen, in the 
County of Orange, where he practised his profession until his 
death in 1829. His maternal ancestor was Tjerck Claessen 
DeWitt, van Grootlandt en Zunderlandt, the founder of the 
DeWitt family in America, who as appears by the Register of mar- 
riages of the Reformed (Collegiate) Dutch Church of New York 
City, married Barbara Andriessen, van Amsterdam on the twenty- 
fourth day of April, 1656, and who with his wife settled at 
Esopus, now Kingston, in Ulster County, in 1660. 

His maternal great grandfather. Major Thomas DeWitt, 
served in the Continental Army during the war of the American 
Revolution, and was one of the defenders of Fort Stanwix dur- 
ing its seige by St. Leger in 1777, and accompanied General Sul- 
livan on his expedition against the six nations in 1779. His 
grandfather, Colonel Jacob Hasbrouck DeWitt, served as adju- 
tant in the war of 1812, and represented the Ulster District in 
the House of Representatives from 1819 to 1821. The house 
built by Tjerck Claessen De Witt in the seventeenth century is 
still standing in an excellent state of preservation on the old 
stage road between Kingston and Hurley. The old home of Mr. 
Evans' maternal great-grandfather and grandfather at Twaalfs- 
kill was one of the great stone houses of Ulster County, and 
stood until 1864 when it made way for a large business enter- 

Mr Evans was educated at the old Kingston Academy, at 


246 President Thomas Grier Evans. [Oct., 

Phillips' Andover Academy and entered Yale with the class of 
'74. At Yale he became the President of the Delta Kappa, then 
the leading Freshman secret society of that day, President of the 
Delta Beta Xi, the principal sophomore secret society, and in his 
junior year was elected President of the Psi Upsilon's Beta chap- 
ter. After graduating at Yale he studied law at Columbia Col- 
lege taking his bachelor's degree in 1876, and then went abroad 
on an extended European trip. On his return from Europe he 
entered the office of the Honorable Clarence A. Seward, a dis- 
tinguished member of the New York Bar, and subsequently de- 
voted his time to that branch of the law relating to real property 
in which he built up a remunerative practice. 

During his entire life he maintained an active interest in his 
ancestral County of Ulster and beginning in 1886 contributed to 
the Record a series of important papers upon the old Dutch and 
Huguenot families of Ulster in which he traced his lineage and 
connection to and with many of them. Among others with the 
DeWitts, Freers, Gumaers, Hoffmans, Kiersteds, Klaarwaters 
(Clearwaters) Kortreghts, Osterhoudts, Roosas, Schoonmakers 
and Vernooys. For many years he was a member of the Pub- 
lication Committee of the Genealogical and Biographical Society 
in the affairs of which he took a warm interest. 

In 1899 he married Elida Woodhull Van Hoevenberg, a charm- 
ing and accomplished woman who survives him. 

Preeminently of a social disposition he was a prominent and 
active member of the University, Grolier, St. Nicholas, Kingston, 
Staten Island, and Winnisook Clubs, of the Association of the 
Bar of the City of New York, of the St. Nicholas Society, of the 
Society of the Sons of the Revolution, of the Yale Alumni So- 
ciety, of the St. Andrews Society. At the time of his death he 
was President of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, the Secretary of the Grolier Club, a Steward of the St. 
Nicholas Society, Chairman of the Committee on Genealogy of 
that Society, Trustee of the Staten Island Club and Treasurer of 
the Staten Island Academy. 

I was his classmate and benchmate at the old Kingston Acad- 
emy many years ago, and the friendship we formed there lasted 
unbroken until he died. 

He was a man of the kindest heart, of generous and genial 
nature, broad sympathies, refined and cultivated tastes, of ex- 
emplary and studious habits with a fancy for genealogical inves- 
tigation which led him to form a large collection of books and 
manuscripts relating to the old families of the State. 

He was singularly free from the ulcer of envy and malice, and 
not long before he died, writing me of an incident which recently 
had happened, he said: " It is strange what a corrosive effect 
envy produces upon an otherwise admirable character." 

There was an old fashioned courtesy of bearing and manner 
about him which always made him welcome at his clubs, in the 
great Societies to which he belonged, and in every circle in which 
he appeard, and he had that indefinable and captivating quality 

1005.] President Thomas Gricr Evans. 247 

which we call personal charm which made him preeminently 
what Dr. Johnson called " a clubable man." 

Withal he was simple and modest to the verge of shyness, and 
so reserved that to strangers he seemed tactiturn. He was a 
calm, clearheaded thinker, a man whose views upon financial, 
economic and social questions were always conservative and in 
accord with the best and soundest sentiment of the day. He 
filled an important place in his world and he always filled it well. 

The action of the Boards of Trustees of the Genealogical and 
Biographical Society, of the St. Nicholas Society, of the Board 
of Stewards of that Society and of the Council of the Grolier 
Club, form an appropriate addition to this tribute to Mr. Evans' 

Resolved, That since our fellow member and late President, 
Mr. Thomas G. Evans, has been removed from us by death, we 
the Trustees of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society, desire to record upon the minutes of this body our ap- 
preciation of his services and our deep sense of loss in his re- 
moval from amongst us. For more than twenty years Mr. Evans 
has been a leader in the councils of this Society, cheerfully giv- 
ing his energy and ability to its business affairs, his learning and 
literary accomplishments to its publications, and to its public 
meetings the dignity and geniality of his presence and character. 

This Board extends its sincere sympathy to his family, and 
directs that a copy of this resolution be engrossed and sent to them. 

The St. Nicholas Society of the City of New York at a stated 
meeting held at Delmonico's on May 4th, 1905, records on its 
minutes the death on March 28th, of Thomas Grier Evans, with 
a deep sense of the loss sustained both by the Society and his 
many personal friends. 

Mr. Evans at the time of his death was not only a Steward of 
the Society, but also the Chairman of the Committee on Geneal- 
ogy, and to his assiduity and remarkable ability the Society owes 
the genealogical records already published as well as the more 
complete work about to appear, a monument to Mr. Evans' un- 
tiring exertions. 

Mr. Rathbone as the Committee on Resolutions of the Board 
of Stewards of the St. Nicholas Society, on the death of our late 
associate Steward, Mr. Thomas G. Evans, presented the following 
resolution, which was on motion, unanimously adopted and or- 
dered spread on the minutes: 

The Committee of Stewards is with great sorrow compelled 
to record the death of Thomas G. Evans, one of its members. 
He was a true and loyal son of St. Nicholas, and brought to our 
deliberations a mind and heart full of the best traditions of the 
Society, and an earnest and hearty desire to unite with his asso- 
ciates in fulfilling the duties of his office. His death is a per- 
sonal loss to each of us, by whom he will long be remembered as 
a man of kindly disposition, sterling character, and a hearty co- 
operator in everything to promote the welfare of the Society. 

248 Wemple Genealogy, [Oct., 

The Council of the Grolier Club expresses its deep sorrow at 
the death on March the twenty-eighth, nineteen hundred and 
five, of Thomas G. Evans, one of its members, and directs that 
the following be recorded on its minutes and a copy sent to his 

Among the many organizations in which Thomas G. Evans 
took a lively interest, there was none nearer to his heart than the 
Grolier Club. Already devoted to the purpose for which the Club 
was formed, he was early enrolled among its members, and for 
nearly twenty years actively concerned in its welfare. A mem- 
ber of the Council from 1897 to the day of his death, he was 
always faithful in his attendance at its meetings and equally con- 
scientious and unwearied in his work. His zeal found a con- 
genial and special field in the performance of the duties of the 
Secretaryship, which duties, though often laborious were always 
performed with exactness, precision and tact, and in a manner 
which gained for him the plaudits of his fellow workers. 

At the social meetings of the Club, which he seldom missed, 
Mr. Evans' presence was felt as a joyous, sympathetic and refin- 
ing influence; his report at the Annual Meeting being one of the 
features of the evening. 

In their long intercourse with Mr. Evans his fellow members 
of the Council of the Club have always had the highest regard 
for his simplicity of character and singleness of purpose, and ad- 
miration for his range of interest and knowledge, a deep appre- 
ciation of his thoroughness and generosity, and a constantly 
growing affection for the courteous gentleman that he was. In 
his death they have suffered peculiar personal loss and they now 
place on record this tribute to his work in the Club and his life 
among them, out of regard to what is due him, and by way of ex- 
pression of their sincere regret that such a life and work are 
ended, and in order to convey their deep sympathy to those who 
within the ties of relationship were nearer to their friend. 

While thus endeavoring to honor the memory of Mr. Evans 
as a member of the Grolier Club, the members of the Council 
are not unmindful of the wide sphere of his labors and useful- 
ness in other directions of private activity and in various phases 
of civic life, in recognition of which they join their fellow citi- 
zens in appreciations and praise.

N. Y., Jan. 15, 181 1, and d. in Fultonville, N. Y., Feb. 27, 1891. In 
1814 he removed from Fonda to Fultonville, N. Y., just across the 
Mohawk River. He was a man of much prominence, and had 
wide business and political connections. His first enterprise was 
the building and conducting in Fultonville of what was, at the 
time, a large hotel, when but nineteen years of age. Soon after, 
he established a plant for making high-grade furniture, the 
machinery being driven by horse power. In 1847, he purchased 
a foundry and machine shop, then of small proportions, and 
greatly increased the character and extent of its business until, 
at the time of his death, it was the largest for miles around. He 
was a pioneer in this branch of the iron trade. He was also 
interested in a lumber mill and other local enterprises, and built 
a brick business block, which is yet considered one of the largest 
and finest buildings in the village. Among other outside con-

inated for County Treasurer, member of Assembly and Congress. 
He was also an Ensign, Captain and Major in the 26th Regiment

The following account of the Schermerhorn Family was 
found by Mr. Walter L. Suydam among some papers which were 
put away for safe keeping, probably fifty years ago, and forgot- 
ten; the manuscript was submitted to Mr. Wm. C. Schermerhorn 
who replied as follows:

My father and my uncle Abraham saw the author of the en-

closed genealogy frequently and obtained all the information 
which he could give about the family history; so far as relates to 
the Schenectady branch, his knowledge was, no doubt, complete, 
but as to the original settler in this country, his marriage and 
the Coat of Arms, he was certainly at fault. 

Yours very truly, 

Wm. C. Schermerhorn. 

Genealogical Table of the Schermerhorn Family 
of Schenectady. 

Genealogy of the Schermerhorn Family (in the United States) 
in part only, by the Rev. G. F. Schermerhorn of Utica, N. Y. 

Jacob Jansen Schermerhorn and Jane Egmont arrived in New 
Netherlands between 1630 and 1640 and settled at Fort Orange. 
The precise time cannot now be ascertained but we infer it was 
about this time from the fact that I find the name of Jacob J. 
Schermerhorn on the Church records of Albany as the twelfth 
male member, and that he must have been among the first who 
were received at the organization of the Church which took place 
in 1638 by Dominie Evert Bogardus 1652. 

I find Jacob J. Schermerhorn was a Judge of the Court of 
Sessions at Fort Orange (now Albany). I find in 1654 a Deed 
executed by Governor Peter Stuyvesant for Lots in Albany 
which his eldest son Ryer in 1700 conveyed to the church of 
Albany, to which was affixed his seal bearing the coat-of -arms of 
the Schermer family which is the spread wings of the fowl pro- 
tecting her brood and the carrier pigeon perched on a branch 
arising from the centre, both of which are significant of the 
name, for Schermer means in Dutch, to protect or defend and 
the Schermer-Hoorn means literally a " House of defense." 

Schermer-Hoorn as the name was formerly written was 
originally two distinct family names. 

The seal attached to this deed referred to is no doubt the 
coat-of-arms of the Schermer family and the coat-of-arms in the 
Schermer family in New York City is probably the coat-of-arms 
of the Hoorn family. If you read the history of Philip 2nd of 
Spain you will find the Counts Hoorn and Egmont were two of 
the principal families of North Holland. 

Ryer Schermerhorn, the eldest son of Jacob Jansen Schermer- 
horn, when a youth was sent to Holland at the solicitations of 
his two maiden aunts, with the intention of making him their 
heir, each of them had their own separate establishment, and 
each wished to adopt him as a son and heir and to have him re- 
side with her. This caused so much jealousy and unkind feeling 
between them and made him so unhappy that he finally left them 
without notice of intention, he went to London and there learned 
the shoemaker's trade. His family for a long time knew not 
what had become of him and gave him up as lost, he was finally 
discovered in London by a sea captain from New Netherlands 
who had known him before and was well acquainted with his 
father and was induced by him to return to America. 

256 History of the Schermerhorn Family. [Oct., 

In 1663, Ryer Schermerhorn and four others, his associates, 
purchased from the Indians the lands about Schenectady which 
was confirmed to them in 1684 by Governor Dungan and called 
the "Schenectada Patent" and of which Ryer was the surviving 
Trustee and the legal title of the whole vested in him. 

The descendants of Jacob Jansen Schermerhorn and Jane 
Egmont* of North Holland and probably from the town of Hoorn, 
who came to Fort Orange or its vicinity. He died about 1690. 
His children were as follows: 

Second Generation. 

Ryer, the eldest son, m. to Adriana of Wilhelmus Mar- 
ating, with- whom he had no issue. His second wife, 1684, 
was Helena Vande Bogart: they settled in Schenectady 
about one mile from the town, at what is now called Scher- 
merhorn's Mills but then called Schuylersberg and which 
has been in the possession of the Schermerhorns from the 
first settlement of the country to this date, 1840. 

Simon was m. to Willemia Viele or Willantjoe Visse 
in 1683 or previous; they first settled at Albany where 
they had two children bap. about 1690, probably just after 
the death of his father. He removed to the City of New 
York where he d. previous to the year 1699, as I find his 
widow was m. in that year to Levinus Winne. 

Jacob was m. to Garretse Hendrickson about 1684 and set- 
tled on the Hudson River at Schodac. 

Cornelius was m. to Maria Hendricks and they settled in 
Greenbush, Rensselaer County. 

Lucas was m. about 1705 to Elizabeth Dame and they settled 
near Kingston, Ulster County, where they had children 
bap.; they removed thence to the Rariton River, N. J. 
His descendants have nearly all emigrated to the West 
nearly 40 years ago. In 181 2 I found several of them at 
the Big Miami River, Ohio, and at White Water, Indiana. 

Matilda, m. to John Beekman of Albany. 

Jane, m. to Mr. Dunbar of Albany. 

Nailtje or Nelly was m. to Mr. Ten Eyck of Schodae. 

Willemjie or Wilhelmina was m. to Mr. Springstein of New 
York (it may be Springsteen or Staed). I remember one 
of the descendants of this family from New York visiting 
my father, Bernardus Freeman Schermerhorn, at Schenec- 
tada about 1796 or 97, and I find a family of this same 
name now reside between Jamaica and Newtown, Long 
Island, at present 1840. 

Third Generation. 

The descendants of Ryer Schermerhorn and Helena Vander 
Bogart of Schenectada. 

John, b. 16 Oct., 1685; m. Anjelena Vrooman; settled in 
Schenectada at the old homestead called Schuylersberg.

Fourth Generation. 
The children of John Schermerhorn and Angelica Vrooman 
of Schenectada, the son of Ryer Schermerhorn of Schuylersberg, 
the eldest son of Jacob Jansen Schermerhorn of Fort Orange or 

Catalina, m. John Dods or Doods; settled at Pompters, New 

Ryer, m. Maria Manken*and resided at the Homestead, 
Schuylersberg, near Schenectada. He until his death was 
engaged in a lawsuit with the Trustees of the Schenectada 
Patent for the lands of that Patent which he claimed as 
heir at law of Ryer Schermerhorn, his grandfather, the 
survivor of the original Patent. He required his sons to 
carry on this suit and by his will disinherited them that 
refused to do it. They however, by common consent 

» Probably should be Maria Van Vranker. See Fifth Generation below. 

258 History of the Schermerhom Family. [Oct., 

abandoned the suit. At his death in 1794, his son Richard 
basely consented to be elected and serve as a Trustee of 
Schenectada and by his means the Trustees have obtained 
possession of many important papers of the family rela- 
tive to that matter.

(Continued from Vol. XXXVI, p. 227, of the Record.) 

The following will excites the greatest interest as it appar- 
ently establishes a link of relationship with the Surrey, Kent and 
Hertfordshire King Families. 

William Kinge, of Cobham, Kent; will dated 14 March 1559; 
proved 27 March, 1560 by John Kinge, executor; states: — "John 

264 The King Family in England. [Oct., 

Kinge, my brother, chaundler to be my executor and to his wife 
a ringe." Mentions cousins Nicholas Kinge and Robert Kinge; 
gives cousin Marian and Mary Palmer ten shillings each and 
twenty shillings to brother Robert. Mentions Alice Adyr and 
gives certain legacies to "every one of his brother Robert's 
daughters" (names not given); to Josias Kinge and to Robert 
Cockerell, his brother's servant. Gives " Item, one crowne to my 
brother Parson Richardson; one crowne and twenty shillings to 
the poore people at his brother's appointment and persons of his 
parish and the other twenty shillings to dispatch his burial and 
sermon." States he owes " one Fowlton, farmer," five shillings ; 
one Poore in Cobham " at the ende of the streete " seven grote ; 
his laundress twenty shillings; one Newman in Strowde five marks 
and forty pence which he lent him. Mentions John Parker of 
Singlewell and Edward Keper of Coulige Parke and William Kinge 
at Mechynny; states "five pound ten shillinges I wolde sholde 
be given to my syster, that is to my syster Manshapp and to my 
syster Ballat and to my brother Robarte Tutton in Meir;" Gives 
his gown to "My Lord;" his gowne and cloke to Nicholas Kinge; 
his sword and girdell to Robert Kinge; and his dagger to his 
brother John; gives his "satten dublet and overshirte of black 
worke" to his brother Robert's sonne; gives "to Molde, my lord's 
armour, my best blacke horse and to Spilman my Redd horse and 
to Raffe the Cator my white canvas doblett, and to Vincent Tom- 
car my blacke fustian dublett;" gives to Clode of the Stable one 
old buck's leather jerkin and one old pair of black hose, with one 
shirt, all in the wardrobe; gives to George Herman his worst 
black coat and one dublet, without sleeves lined with blue 

Witnesses: Sur * Rychardson, clarke, p'son of Sainte 

Mathues in Frydaye Street; Margaret Kynge; Alice Awder. 

In the calendar it is stated that the testator died at Southwerk. 

(P. C. C. 22 Mellershe.) 

This Rob Richardson was presented to the Rectory of Chelsea 
on 19 March 1543; of which living he was deprived for being a 
married priest but restored temp. Eliz. In the burial register 
of St. Matthews, Friday Street, London, appears the entry " 1573 
Oct. 31, Rob Richardson, parson of ye parish who dyed of very 
age." No will of his has as yet been discovered. 

The fact that this William Kinge was of Cobham, Kent, died at 
Southwerk, Surry, and was of close kin to Parson Rob Richard- 
son, becomes most significant when compared with statements 
made in the following later King wills. 

Francis Kynge of Watford Herts, son of Nicholas Kinge of 
Kings Langley, Herts, left a will dated 25 March 1630 and proved 
9 April 1630 (P. C. C. 34 Scroope) by his son Zacharias, in which 
he mentions a brother Ralphe Kynge of London (undoubtedly 
the Ralphe Kinge of St. Mildreds, Bread Street, London, grocer) 
and a " messuage called the Viance at Cobham, Kent." 

* The word " Sir " was often used for a Priest as well as for a Knight. 

1905O The King Family in England, 265 

Mary Kinge (Rev. John; Ralph) of Abbots Langley, Herts, 
Spinster, left a will dated 1683 in which she mentions "cousins 
Daniel Richardson and Patrick Richardson." 

The ownership of land at Cobham, Kent, and the kinship to 
the Richardson family of these two branches of the Watford, 
Abbot's Langley and King's Langley King Family cannot be a 
mere coincidence. It indicates some kinship with William Kinge 
of Cobham, Kent. 

Nicholas Kinge of Kinge Langley, Herts, yeoman, who was 
buried there 21 December 1599 had a daughter Elizabeth, bap- 
tized 20 May 1594 at King's Langley. She married on 9 Sep- 
tember 16 1 2 at King's Langley one Thomas Bigg. 

Thomas Bigg of Kinge's Langley in his will dated October 
1623 mentions his "brothers'-in-law Francis Kynge of Watford 
and John Kynge of King's Langley, yeoman." 

It is an odd coincidence that one Smallhope Bigg of Cran- 
brook, Kent in his will dated 3 May, 1638 and proved 3 October 
1638 by John Bigg, mentions kinsman Edward White and Martha, 
his wife, now resident in New England. Edward White was of 
Dorchester, Mass and married 1616 at St. Dunstan's Church, 
Cranbrook, Kent, Martha King. 

This will apparently links up the Kings Langley, Herts, Kings 
with Cranbrook, Kent. 

There were several King families at Beckenham, Cranbrook 
and Bromley, Kent, and in the Parish Church of Bromley, Kent 
in the Nave is the tomb of John Kinge of London. The brass is 
in the pavement of the centre isles, is still in good condition and 

" Here underlyeth buried the body of John Kinge 
of London, Draper and Free of the Companye of 
Cloth Workers' who departed this worlde the 

fifte of September, Dom. 1603 Aetatis 

He had to wife Susan Woodward by whom he left 
issue then living Henry, James, John and Elizabeth." 

The church registers of Bromley are still intact and contain 
many Kinge entries. 

The Arms of King of Bromley, Kent, are given in Burke's 
General Armory as: "Sable: a lion rampant guardant ermine, 
between three crosses, Pattde Fitchee at the foot, or: Crest, a 
lion's gamb erect and erased, sable, holding a cross patte'e fitchee, 

In the parish church of Beckenham, Kent, in the churchyard 
are tombs of Henry Kinge of Beckenham, Gent, 1520, and Rob- 
ert Kinge, his son, 1555. 

Furthermore one Arnold Kinge of Beckenham, Kent, Gent, 
conveyed certain land there on 5 October 1580. He had a daugh- 
ter Joan, who married as a second wife, Harman Atwood of 
Sandersted, Surry. She died and was buried there 3 January, 1640. 

There is a strong probability that these Kentish Kings were 
closely related to the King family of Southwerk, Surrey, re- 
corded in many entries on the church registers of St. Olave, and 
St. Saviour, Southwerk, Surrey. 


266 The King Family in England. [Oct., 

Turning once more to the Hertfordshire King family, the fol- 
lowing facts are of interest. 

Rev. John Kinge, Vicar of Abbot's Langley, Herts, was a son 
of Ralphe Kinge of Watford, Herts, and compounded for the 
living at Abbot's Langley on 16 November, 1626. In the First 
Fruits Composition Book, the sureties on his bond at compound- 
ing were Ralphe Kinge of St. Mildred's, Bread Street, London, 
grocer; and Richard Spencer of St. Margarets, Friday Street, 

This Ralphe Kinge, "grocer," was undoubtedly the son of 
Nicholas Kinge of King's Langley, Herts, and a brother of 
Francis Kynge of Watford, Herts. 

In the Administrations Acts Book for 1638 (P. C. C. London), 
administration was granted 14 February, 1638-39, to John Gear- 
inge, principal creditor of Ralphe Kinge of St. Mildreds, Bread 
Street, London, deceased. 

It must also be noted that one Andrew Kynge of Great 
Chesham, Bucks, Gent, in his will dated 20 January, 1616, and 
proved 26 November, 161 7, mentions a wife Anne, sons Samuel, 
Peregrine, Nathaniel and Jacob; daughters Godsgrace Grover 
and her son, Andrew Grover and John Gearinge of London, 
grocer, and Richard Spencer of London, haberdasher. 

There is the strongest probability that this Andrew Kynge, 
Gent, was of close kin to Rev. John Kinge (Ralphe) of Abbot's 
Langley; and to Ralphe Kinge (Nicholas) of St. Mildred's, 
Bread Street, London, grocer. 

The mentions of the names John Gearinge, grocer, and Rich- 
ard Spencer, haberdasher, are most sifinificant. 

The name John Spencer, merchant, in the will of Thomas 
Harvard, who married Elizabeth Kinge, daughter of Nicholas 
Kinge of Southwerk, Surry, is also a strong indication of close 
kin of these Hertfordshire Kings. 

Thomas Harvard, of the parishe of Saint Olave, in South- 
werke, in the County of Surrey, citizen and clothworker of Lon- 
don, in his will, dated 15 July, 1636, and proved 5th May, 1637 
(P. C. C. 69 Goare) mentions his wife, Elizabeth; father-in-law 
Mr. Nicholas Kinge, messuages and tenements at or near Tower- 
hill in the parish of All Saintes, Barkinge, in London; " Item, I 
give and bequeath unto my said ffather in lawe Mr. Nicholas 
Kinge, the some of three pounds to make him a ringe." " Item, 
I give and bequeathe unto my Mother in lawe Margarett Kinge 
ffortie shillinges and unto her twoe ^daughters Margarett and 
Hannah the like some of ffortie shillinges a piece to make them 
ringes;" "And I doe nominate and appointe my said lovinge 
ffather in law Mr. Nicholas Kinge and my lovinge cossen Thomas 
Harvard and my lovinge friend Mr. John Spencer, Merchante, to 
be overseers of this my will." 

Richard Yearwood, of Southwerk, Co. Surry (of kill to John 
Harvard, founder of Harvard College) citizen and grocer of Lon- 
don, in his will dated 8 September 1632 and proved 6 October, 

1905.] Records of the Reformed Dutch Church. 267 

1632 mentions "cousin Nicholas Kinge, grocer and Margaret, his 
wife." He further names Nicholas Kinge as one of his execu- 

Ann Palmer, of London, widow, in her will dated 30 January, 
162 1 and proved 31 December 1624 mentions "cousin Nicholas 
Kinge and Margaret Kinge, his wife." 

Nicholas Moreton, minister of the word of God at St. 
Savious, Southwerk, in the County of Surry, in his will, dated 29 
May 1640 and proved 18 August 1640, mentions his wife, Eliza- 
beth Moreton and devises " her third part of three tenements at 
Shipyard near Chain Gate in Long Southwark, that descended 
upon her by the death of her late Father, Mr. Nicholas Kinge." 
He also mentions his " late sister in lawe, Margaret Kinge " and 
his sons "Charles, John and Nicholas Moreton," etc. He was the 
pastor of John Harvard, founder of Harvard College, Cambridge, 
Mass. As yet no full printed transcription of the church regis- 
ter of St. Olave and of St. Saviour, Southwerk, has been pub- 
lished. These records are filled with Kinge entries and extracts 
from same might go far to clear up the question of relationship 
of the Surry, Hertfordshire and Kent King families. 

The above data however should afford many clues in tracing 
out the ancestry of Clement King of Marsh field, Mass., and later 
of the Providence Plantations. It has been well established that 
this Clement King was either a son or a grandson of Ralphe 
Kinge of Watford, Herts, and was of kin to Nicholas Kinge of 
King's Langley, Herts. Should it be proved that the Southwerk, 
Surry, Watford, Abbot's Langley and King's Langley, Herts; 
and Cobham, Bromley and Beckenham, Kent King families were 
all related, a fertile field of investigation would be at once es- 
tablished for future King genealogists and historians.

Bv Zeno Thomas Griffen. 

The ancestors of Captain Israel Thomas were of Welsh ori- 
gin and came to America in early colonial times, but no record 
of whom his parents were, or where they landed is known. 

Tradition. — He and his brother were first known as pros- 
perous farmers in or near the town of Kingsbury, north of 
Albany, as pioneers and members of the militia of the Colony of 
New York, participating in the French War. But when the 
Revolution broke out Israel warmly espoused the American 
cause, while his brother took sides with King George III and 
fled to Canada where he was rewarded for his fidelity by a large 
grant in Nova Scotia. 

Israel went with his command, probably what was the 4th 
Albany Regiment and garrisoned Ft. George, at the head of 
Lake George, where the troops suffered extremely from sickness, 
and Israel was one of those severely stricken, and for two months 

1905.] Capt. Israel Thomas and Some of His Descendants. 2fJ 

was confined in an apartment in the wall of that fort. General 
Thomas — it is not known whether the General was related to 
Israel-— died of the small pox there, as many others, and the 
Americans were compelled to evacuate Fort George and retreat 
towards Saratoga. It is not known how active Israel was at the 
several battles before that final victory when Burgoine surren- 
dered, but there is evidence that he was in service for his old 
wooden enlisted man's canteen is yet in existence in the possess- 
ion of one of his descendants in Washington, or Saratoga County, 
N. Y. 

But he served with such ability that he was finally promoted 
to a Captain and always kept his connection with the militia until 
his death. There is a monument in the burying ground of 
" Moss Street" near Sandy Hill, N. Y., erected by his friends.

four years of age, from Co. Essex, England. In 1657 he was 
among the Hempstead, Long Island, settlers, and died there 
about 1690. His ten sons all left descendants.

1905.] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. 2QI 


By Edwin A. Hill, Ph.D. 

Historian Conn. Society and Secretary Dist. of Columbia Soc. of Mayflower 

(Continued from Vol. XXXVI, p. 21a, of The Record.) 

57 Capt. Richard 9 More, of the Mayflower Company, son of 
Col. Samuel 9 More, the so-called parliamentarian, by his first 
wife and third cousin, Catherine 8 More, of Larden. Baptized 
there, as per Skipton Registers, Nov. 13, 1614 (p. 20), forms the 
subject of Mr. George Ernest Bowman's paper {Mayflower De- 
scendant, III, pages 194 to 201), to which the reader is referred for 
what little is known about him. Putnam's Genealogical Quarterly 
Magazine (2-164) states that on 6-11-1678, liberty was given 
Capt. Richard More to fence in the graves of his wife and son 
Caleb, citing Salem Town Records. Bradford credits him with 4 
or 5 children when writing his history of Plymouth. So far as 
known his children were as given below, the exact order of birth 
not being known to me. He was buried at Salem, his tombstone 
being shown at page 193 of Mayflower Descendant, Vol. Ill, the 
year of his death being either 1698 or 1699, as already shown. 
His first wife was Christian Hunt, of unknown ancestry, whom 
he m. i-ii Nov., 1637, and who d. at Salem, March 18, 1676. His 
second wife was Jane, dau. of Richard Hollingsworth, Sr., of Sa- 
lem, b. about 1631; d. at Salem, Oct. 8, 1686. His children, Mr. 
Bowman concludes, were all by the first wife. He was a mariner 
by trade, and his children were (so far as known): 

67 Richard. 10 

68 Caleb, b. about 1645; d. ]an. 4, 1678-9; probably single. 

69 Christian, b. about 1652. 

70 Susanna. 

7 1 To the above, as given by Bowman, I will add, as a pos- 

sibility requiring future verification, the name of Sarah. 
See the query of J. G. B., No. 3187 (Nov. 30, 1898), in 
Boston Transcript, asking for ancestry of Sarah More, 
who, in 1665, m. Eleazer Giles, of Salem. She would 
have been of about the right age to have been a dau. 
of Capt. Richard, and the spelling of the name More is 
the same. Nor am I advised of any other More family 
in Salem at that time. This gives us Bradford's 5 
67 Richard ,0 More, Jr., a " mariner," presumably the eldest son 

of Richard," of the Mayflower, m. Sarah , both living in 

Salem as late as 11-21 Sept., 1691. (See. Put. Hist. Mag., 2-166.) 

72 Samuel," d. Nov. 24, 1673, ae. 9 days, and perhaps others.

and was therefore b. about 1652. She m. Aug. 31, 1676, Joshua 3

the Records of Truro about to be published. 

70 Susanna 10 More, dau. of Richard, m. Capt. Samuel Dutch, of 
Salem, Mass., who d. before 19-29 March, 1693-4, when the widow 
Susanna was administratrix on his estate. She then m., before 3- 
13 Dec, 1694, Richard Hutton, of Wenham, who was at that time 
appointed guardian to his wife's dau. Susanna Dutch, then aged 
about 12 years. They were still living at Wenham as late as 
20-30 May, 1707. Issue so far as known: 

74 Barbarah," b. about Sept., 1677; d. April 10, 1678; ae. 8 


75 Susanna, b. about 1682. 

For the authorities on the family of Richard More, of the 
Mayflower, see Mr. Bowman's article already cited. 

Beyond this point, no lines of descent from Capt. Richard 
More have been definitely traced. The various Conant gen- 
ealogies contain nothing additional to what has already been 
given. It is to be hoped that when the records of Truro are pub- 
lished, it will be possible to learn something further about No. 
72, Joshua Conant. 

The following extract from Vol. XI (Mor.-Paz.), page 8, of 
Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolution, seems to in- 
dicate that Capt. Richard More had a descendant of that name at 
Salem as late as revolutionary times. The passage is as follows 
(note the spelling More): 

" More Richard, pay roll for six months men raised by the 
town of Salem for service in the Continental Army during 1780. 
Marched Aug. 10, 1780, discharged Dec. 17, 1780; service 4 
months 20 days including travel (240 miles) home." 

I would suggest, as a subject for future research on the part 
of any interested, an attempt to identify this revolutionary 
soldier as a descendant of Richard of the Mayflower, and to learn 
whether or not he left any descendants. The records of the U. S. 
Bureau of Pensions at Washington, give no information about 
him, and thus far none of the members of the Daughters of the 
American Revolution have proved ancestry from this Salem 
soldier. The Chief of the Record and Pension Office of the War 
Deparment advises me that one Richard Moore or Moor served as 
private in Capt. Thomas Fish's Company, 4th Mass. Regt., Col. 
William Shepard, Rev. War. He enlisted April 5, 1777, for the 
war and joined the Corps of invalid's Continental troops (appar- 
ently by transfer) Dec. 20, 1780. "It appears that he served as 
private in the last named organization under Capt. Moses Mc- 
Farland but the date and manner of separation from the service 
are not shown." 

We come now to the question of how the More children came 
to be of the Mayflower company, and this becomes plainer as we 
read the biographical sketches of the lives of their father and 

'9°5-] The English. Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. 293 

grandfather. Burke (Ed. 1898, Vol. I, page 1059) gives the 
following account of them. For more extended sketches and full 
citation of authorities, see Dictionary of National Biography, Vol. 
38, pages 426 and 427: 

" Richard More, of Linley, who thus reunited the ancient 
estates of the family, being styled of More Linley and Larden 
married a sister of Thomas Harris, Bart., of Boreatton; was High 
Sheriff in 1619,* and represented the town of Bishops Castle in 
the Long Parliament of Charles I. The part he took was de- 
cidedly anti-monarchical, and he appears early among the most 
active partisans of the Parliament within the County, but he died 
Dec. 6, 1643, before the triumph of his party, and was succeeded 
by his son. 

" Samuel More, of More Linley and Larden, who took a lead- 
ing part in the civil commotions of Salop. He had scarcely paid 
the last rites to his father, when he was called upon to take com- 
mand of Hopton Castle, one of the few fortresses in Salop which 
were at that time in the interests of the Parliament, and he 
gallantly sustained a month's siege, with but thirty-one men 
against five hundred horse and foot.f Subsequently events 
crowned with success the party espoused by Col. More, as he is 
generally called, and he was actively engaged in the internal 
regulation of Salop, of which he was returned to be one of four 
representatives to the parliament summoned by Cromwell for 
1656. His first wife, a daughter of his kinsman Jasper More, 
brought him three children. By a second marriage he had three 
sons and four daughters, etc., etc." 

The Dictionary of National Biography adds " that Samuel 
More, b. 1594, was eldest son of Richard of Lindley, Shropshire, 
whom he succeeded in 1643, a zealous parliamentarian, an active 
soldier, summoned 1643-4 to the command of Hopton Castle, 
Governor of Montgomery, Ludlow, and Hereford Castles, M. P. 
for Bishop's Castle, Jan. 1658, and died 1662, married first a 
daughter of his kinsman Jasper More, by whom he had three 
children (the Mayflower More children). By a second wife he 
had three sons and four daughters. His eldest son (by second 
wife) Richard, born May 26, 1646, being M. P. for Bishop's Castle 
1680 to 1698." 

We see here clearly the kind of men that were the immediate 
ancestors of these children of the Mayflower. They were men 
after Cromwell's own heart, devoted body and soul to the " good 
old cause." Picture to yourself Col. Samuel More, the " Parlia- 
mentarian," the father of Capt. Richard More, of Salem, and his 
circumstances at the time of the pilgrim embarcation at Delfts 
Haven. A young man, not having yet succeeded to his paternal 
inheritance, the heir presumptive of a great county family, 
politically an independent, perhaps intimate with some, if not all, 
of the leaders of the Mayflower company, sympathizing with 
them in their troubles, partaking of their political and religious

views, one of them in spirit, but not actually of their party, be- 
cause more needed at home, and so staying behind to play his 
own peculiar part in the inevitable and long forseen coming 
struggle of the Commons against the King, because, being essen- 
tially a military leader, there was waiting for him important work 
to be done in the Old England rather than in the New. His 
young wife but recently dead, a family of four small children on 
his hands, of the tender ages ranging say from 8*^ to 4, with the 
certainty in the near future of the outbreak of a religious and 
political upheaval which when once started would surely shake 
the existing structures, social, religious and political, to their 
very foundations, and which did in fact come later, when the 
Long Parliament arrayed themselves against King Charles. What 
more natural for such a man, in such a case, than to seek a safe 
asylum for his helpless, motherless children, in the new common- 
wealth about to be founded beyond the seas by men of his own 
religious and political faith, and to arrange through his affilia- 
tions with the Mayflower company for their transportation to 
New England under the care of and adopted into the families of 
the leaders of the pilgrim band. At their tender ages, they 
would of course necessarily become members of some one of the 
existing families, and hence it is that, as Bradford writes, they 
were " put " respectively to the families of Governor Carver, 
Elder Brewster and Mr. Edward Winslow. Col. More himself 
was of the English gentry; we naturally find his children attached 
to the families of three of the most prominent English gentlemen 
in the party. 

I do not here overlook Mr. Apthorp's statement about May- 
flower coat armor, etc., previously cited, but apply the term 
gentlemen to Carver, Brewster and Winslow, not in the strict 
sense that we have proved their right to arms by the Herald's 
visitations, but in the broader sense that we know the fact from 
other evidence which, though indirect, is almost, if not practically, 
as conclusive. 

Mr. Apthorp {Mayflower Descendant, II, 162), in the same 
article already cited, has this to say, however, in qualification of 
his adverse statement on the subject: 

" Winslow's father was designated Esquire, and very possibly 
the family was armigerous, but at present definite knowledge on 
the subject is lacking. The Governor used arms on his seal, but 
his right to do so has never been satisfactorily settled, and cannot 
be until his descent from a recognized armigerous ancestor has 
been proved beyond doubt." 

While we have no pedigree proof that Winslow and Carver 
were gentlemen rather than yeomen, I think there can be little 
doubt of it in Winslow's case. I hardly think he would have used 
arms had he not had good grounds for believing he had the right 
to do so; and I think there is a strong probability also in Carver's 
case, for it is stated on the authority or the manuscript records of 
Plymouth Church (I, 27), as cited in the work entitled Governors 
of New Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay, p. 48, that he spent the 
main part of a considerable estate in the pilgrim enterprise, all 

1905.] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. 2QZ, 

of which sounds much more as though he were a gentleman of 
landed estate rather than a mere yeoman. 

As to Elder Brewster, the evidence is the strongest of the 
three, for the Ecclesiastical Court of York, on Sept. 15, 1607 
issued a warrant for the apprehension as a Brownist of " William 
Brewster of Scrooby Gentleman " (see Brown's Pilgrim Fathers, 
Chicago Ed. of 1896, p. 98). That the title "gentleman" would 
not have been applied in a judicial warrant to one not strictly 
entitled to the distinction goes without saying. But whether 
these three, Carver, Brewster and Winslow, were gentlemen en- 
titled to the use of coat armour or not, they were certainly among, 
if not themselves, the chiefs of the pilgrim party politically and 
socially, and it is in their families that we naturally find the 
children of so prominent a man among the Independents as Col. 
Samuel More of Larden. 

In a word, the point I wish to make is this, that even if by 
Bradford's expression " put to," we are to understand an appren- 
ticing or binding out of children, in the ordinary acceptation of 
that phrase, yet, in reality, this was a case of adoption rather than 
ordinary service or apprenticeship, which, however, took that 
legal form in order to give to Carver, Brewster and Winslow the 
same paternal authority over these children that a father would 
have over his own children. 

Instead, then, of being mere London waifs, bound out to ser- 
vice, as some writers have heretofore surmised, they were 
evidently the children of a friend or respected political associate 
or sympathizer, honorably adopted into the various families in 
which we find them, and without doubt generously provided for 
financially by their father, Col. Samuel, who was probably well 
able so to do. The fact that before the embarcation at London 
we find them at the house of such a man as Thomas Weston, 
awaiting the coming of the Leyden party, as sworn to by Richard 
of Salem in his affidavit of 1684, is no more than would have been 
expected under all the circumstances. 

If this view is correct, and these children were adopted rather 
than bound out, we have here an explanation of the fact that 
some early writers speak of Jasper More as Governor Carver's 
son, son by adoption so to speak (see Governors of New Plymouth, 
etc., p. 46; Azel Ames, etc., p. 173; and Windsor's Duxbury, 240). 
Being an adopted son he might readily, and with a certain degree 
of truth, be spoken of as Carver's son. This statement has 
usually been considered a mistake of the early writers in question, 
but perhaps it may not be so much of a mistake after all as has 
been heretofore supposed. 

A question which now arises is whether or not there were any 
among the Mayflower company who may have been personally 
known to Samuel More of Laffden, which would of course tend to 
still further explain the presence of his children in the company, 
and also as to whether or not any others of the Mayflower pas- 
sengers can likewise be traced back to Shipton in Shropshire. 

A further examination of these registers, made by myself, de- 
veloped the very significant fact that the name Tilley occurred 

296 The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. [Oct., 

quite frequently, and that among the names indexed were both 
John and Edward, but no other significant names were noted. 

These records, as found, were of course in Latin; below how- 
ever, I have given them in English, and arranged in chrono- 
logical order.

Now it is possible that we have here, in items 6 and 8, the 
baptismal records of John and Edward of the Mayflower. The 
arguments favoring this identification would seem to be as 

1st. The connection of the More children with Shipton, 
making it per se, a probable locality in which to look for other 
passengers of the Mayflower. 

2nd. The order of age, John and Edward, as indicated by the 
baptismal records, corresponding to the order in which the 
brothers are named by Winslow in Mourt's Relation (Arber, p. 

3rd. The prefix or title " Master," sometimes given them, 
seems in general to be what we would have expected from the 
Shipton records. 

4th. Their ages would appear to be about right. John Tilley, 
in 1620, had a daughter (Elizabeth) then over 14 years of age, so 
that he could not then have been less than about 35 years old 
(how much older we can not say); Edward, his brother, was 
probably not less than 30 years old, because he had two children 
of his kindred in his charge. In 1620, the John Tilley (No. 6 
above) would have been 49 years old, and Edward (No. 8) 46, so 
that the hypothesis is not inconsistent with these facts. We can, 
then, assign these lower limits of, say 35 and 30 to their ages in 
1620, but the only evidence known to me (and that is very slight) 
tending to fix an upper limit in either case, is the fact that 
Winslow, in his account of the "First Discovery" in Mourt's 
Relation (Arber, p. 411), after describing the party of 16 men 
under Captain Standish, says: " Unto whom were added for coun- 
cil and advice, William Bradford, Stephen Hopkins and Edward 
Tilley." This language seems to imply age rather than youth. 

! 9°5-] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the- Mayflower. 2<jJ 

The rule is ever, youth for action, old age for council, and so 
Winslow's words favor the identification rather than otherwise. 
Bradford was then 31 years old, and Hopkins probably at least 
30, if not older, while Edward Tilley, if the above be the record 
of his baptism, was at least 46. 

Per contra, a strong argument against this identification is the 
record of death at Shipton in 1629 (No. 15) of Lucia, wife of Ed- 
ward Tilley. The natural inference would be that this Edward 
is the same as the one baptized there in 1574 (see No. 8). If this 
be so, then the whole identification of the Mayflower Tilleys with 
this family falls to the ground, for, as we well know, Edward of 
the Mayflozver and his wife Ann died in Plymouth, Mass., soon 
after the arrival. This may, however, have been another Edward, 
as the family seems to have been much in evidence at Shipton. 
A much more significant record, however, discovered by the 
writer in the printed registers of Hughley, Shropshire {Parish 
Register Society, Vol. 41) is found at page 2, and is as follows: 

" Thomas Weston, renatus fuit vicesimo die February anno ut 
supra" (1583.) 

Other records from the same register were, as Anglicised: 
Anna Weston, buried June 18, .'590, p. 3. 
Anthony Weston, buried Feb. 4, 1614, p. 7. 
Margaret Weston, buried Feb. 16, 1614, p. 7. 
Anna Weston, buried April 13, 1614, p. 8. 

Now Hughley is only about three miles, a little to the east of 
north from Shipton Church and Larden Hall, and this Thomas 
Weston, bap. 1583, must have been personally acquainted with 
Catharine, the mother of the Mayflower children, who was bap. 
at Shipton only 3 years later than himself, and also with Col. 
Samuel, their father, who lived at Linley and More, not far away, 
and who married his cousin Catharine in 1610, and from that time 
on resided at Larden Hall, and the probability is very strong that 
this was the same Thomas Weston, of London, in whose care the 
four children were placed while waiting for the Mayflower to set 
sail for New England. That is, that we have at last located the 
well known " Merchant and citizen of London," as designated by 
Gov. Winslow, who acted as the London agent of the pilgrim 
company. Accepting this identification, Weston's age in 1620 
would have been, say, 37, just about what would have been ex- 
pected; that is, not a young man, but mature and in the prime of 
life. Practically, all that has heretofore been known about him 
is summed up in the article in The Dictionary of National Bio- 
graphy, LX., 374. He died about 1643, as is said, in Bristol, 
during the Civil War, and little, if anything, is known of him in 
addition to what Gov. Bradford has written. He is said to have 
had a brother-in-law, Richard Greene, and in N. E. H. & G. 
Register, 41-285, it is said that he was probably a brother of the 
Earl of Portland, Sir Richard Weston. It is possible that the 
following records, found by myself, refer to him also, viz.: 

1621. June 8. Rachel, dau. of Thomas Weston and Rebecca 
his wife, christened at St. Thomas the Apostle, London. 
Harleian Soc. Reg. Sect., 6, 44. 

298 The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. [Oct., 

1619. July 5. Edward, son of Thomas Weston and Rebecca 
his wife, buried at St. Thomas the Apostle. Harleian 
Soc. Reg. Sect., 6, 111. 

Here, certainly, it would seem, is a very probable line of affili- 
ation between Col. Samuel, the parliamentarian, and the pilgrim 
band. The London agent, who had more to do, perhaps, with the 
English preparations for the Mayflower's voyage than any other 
one man in England, Thomas Weston, the old time acquaintance 
and fellow townsman of the parents of the More children, is he 
in whose care they were placed while awaiting (as stated in the 
affidavit of Capt. Richard of Salem) their transportation to Ply- 
mouth, in New England, in the Mayflower, in 1620. (See full text 
of the affidavit in Mayflower Descendant, III, 194-5.) 

I will now briefly review the arguments which appear to me 
to conclusively establish the identification of Capt. Richard of 
Salem with that of Richard, the son of Samuel, who was bap. at 
Shipton in 1614. 

Jasper is a rather uncommon name, and the combination 
Jasper More is still more uncommon. In no other of many regis- 
ters examined by me, does the name Jasper More occur, except 
in the various branches of this particular family. The spelling 
" More " of this name is rare, while that of " Moore " is much 
more frequently met with. 

" More " is the uniform spelling of the pedigrees of the Linley 
More and Larden family, and it is also the spelling of the Brad- 
ford history and of the Salem, Mass., tombstones. 

That a Jasper More, of about the right age ; his sister Ellen, 
also of about the right age ; and a brother Richard, of exactly the 
right age, should not be the Jasper, Ellen and Richard of the 
Mayflower company can scarcely be credited; the chances against 
the occurrence of such coincidences are too great, and the fact 
that all the circumstances in which the father Samuel was 
placed, the death of the mother, the four motherless children, of 
tender age, on his hands, the unsettled state of the country, the 
fact that the father was of the same political and religious faith 
as the Mayflower pilgrims; the possibility that John and Edward 
Tilley may have been from Shipton, and the much stronger 
probability that Thomas Weston, the London agent of the pil- 
grims was from Hughley, only three miles away, all so fully 
and naturally explain the presence of his children on the May- 
flower, as to render the identification practically conclusive. 

Besides all this, Capt. Richard More of Salem had a grandson 
Samuel, the son of Richard More, Jr., who was evidently named 
for Samuel, the Parliamentarian, his great grandfather. 

It should also be added that the way in which these children 
are referred to in the English pedigrees (as in Burke's Landed- 
Gentry for instance) points to the same conclusion. 

Richard, the son of Samuel by the first wife Katherine, bap. 
1614, was the oldest son, and presumptively his father's heir, but 
the English estates all passed to the second, Richard, born 1627, 
the eldest son by the second wife. If the first Richard, the heir 
apparent, had died in England without issue, the English pedi- 

1905.] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower, 2 99 

grees, according to the custom of the times, would certainly have 
mentioned the fact but they do not do so. 

One would naturally infer from the mere statement of these 
pedigrees, viz.: that Samuel had three children by his first wife 
(no names being given and nothing more being said about them), 
that all three of them were girls, but the Shipton registers show 
that, per contra, two of them were boys. The theory that all the 
children of the first wife were adopted by other families, and left 
the realm to seek a new home in the unsettled wilderness beyond 
the seas, which action made them, so far as the succession was 
concerned, practically as though dead, fully explains the succes- 
sion of the second Richard, who remained in England (in the face 
of the fact that his elder brother was still alive in New England), 
and also explains the peculiar silence of the English pedigrees 
as to the fate of Katherine's children, as no other theory can 
possibly do. 

One further point should be noted here. The English pedi- 
grees state that Samuel More had three children by his first wife. 
We have seen that there were at least five, four of whom sailed 
in the Mayflower. Of these four, Bradford tells us, three were 
boys and one of them a girl. Girls are not much regarded in old 
English pedigrees ; sometimes they are referred to, but often 
not, and I presume that whoever first prepared these pedigrees, 
say, back in the 17th Century, had in mind the three boys only, 
and paid no attention whatever to the girl Ellen, but considered 
these children of but little account, because gone to parts beyond 
seas, and legally adopted into families there, and so having no 
part and parcel in the affairs of the English family. 

With reference to the use of the adjectives "Generosus" and 
" Generosi " on the Shipton registers in connection with the name 
of Samuel More of Larden, it has already been stated in the 
preliminary note {Mayflower Descendant, III, 256) that it implies 
"noble birth," and the use of the adjective on these records 
would seem fully justified by the pedigree already given. 

It would be a very interesting thing to discover the will of 
Samuel More, the Parliamentarian, and to learn whether there 
occurs in it any mention of his elder son Richard, then living in 
Salem, Mass., so far away beyond the seas, or whether he is men- 
tioned in the will of his grandfather Richard. This, of course, 
would be a subject for special research in England. 

Since the first portion of this article went to press three 
months ago, I have consulted the printed records of the parish of 
More in Shropshire and have found the following additional 
items relating to this family. In both the Shipton and More regis- 
ters; in the preface it is distinctly stated that these entries relate 
to the family of Col. Samuel the parliamentarian. 

A well known genealogist who looked over my Mss. not long 
since, questioned whether we could be sure that Col. Samuel 
really had two sons each named Richard, but these two registers 
fully settle the question in the affirmative. The items from the 
More register are as follows:

I will close this article with some notes on Shipton, its old 
church, Larden Hall, the ancestral home of the family, and the 
seats ot the various Shropshire families allied by marriage. Bag- 
shaw {History, etc., of Shropshire, 185 1, p. 547), says that Shipton 
is a parish and village in the upper division of the Munslow hun- 
dred, pleasantly situated on the road from Much Wenlock to 
Ludlow. 6%. miles S. W. from the former and 15 miles, N. E., 
from the latter place, and it will be found on the map in that lo- 
cation. Shipton Church, whose registers we have been consider- 
ing " is first heard of about 1 110," says J. C. Anderson (Shropshire, 
etc., 1864, p. 250), that is, 44 years after the battle of Hastings. 
A. C. J. Hare (Shropshire, etc., 1898, p. 80) tells us that it was one 
one of eleven "peculiars," independent of everyone, and once 
fought a duel by proxy for its rights. 

What does modern evangelical theology have to say to the 
conception of a. duel fighting church? H. T. Timmins, in his 
Nooks and Corners of Shropshire, p. 130, gives us the following 
description of it, which is of interest, because the history of the 
old church is so closely bound up with that of the ancient family 
of More, its patrons: 

" Shipton Church is a building of various dates, and so far has 
remained untouched by restoration. At its western end rises a 
weather boarded bell turret, while a coating of bright salmon red 
tint lends an air of cheerful distinction to the exterior. 

" A plain Norman chancel arch, having a small arched aper- 
ture on each side, gives access to the Chancel itself, built, as is 
recorded in Old English Characters on a brass plate let into the 
wall, in the time of Queen Elizabeth. ' This Channcell Was Re- 
edified And Builded Of Newe At The Chardges Of John Lutwich 
Of Lutiviche In The XXX J Yeare Of The Gracious Reigne of 
Queene Elizabeth. 1589.' 

" The name Mytton figures upon most of the monumental 
tablets on these walls. Some scraps of old painted glass may 
still be discovered in the window above altar. 

"Larden Hall (says the same authority, Timmins, at p. 131) 
is an ancient seat of the Mores', pleasantly situated in a well 
timbered park under Wenlock Edge." 

Hare (p. 82) thus notices it: 

" On the left of the Road is the entrance to Larden Hall (for- 
merly Laverden), till very recently a residence of the More 
family, who were established very early at the neighboring More 

I9°5-] The English Ancestry of Richard More of the Mayflower. 30 1 

Hall. William More was living at Larden in 1477, before which 
date is the timber part of the house. The rest, of stone, is shown 
by date and initials to have been built by Jasper More, in 1606 
(grandfather of, and after whom our Jasper of the Mayflower was 
named). Two years later, his only son was killed in a duel by 
his neighbor Francis Shepherd of Balnet, so that on his death in 
1 61 2, Larden passed to a cousin, who was father of the Col. More 
who defended Hopton Castle in 1644." 

Those who have access to the 3rd edition of Murray's Hand- 
book to Shropshire and Cheshire (London, 1897) will find the 
location of Larden Hall shown on the folding map in the pocket 
of the book cover. Find Ludlow about 1 inch above the lower 
edge of the map and a little to the left of its centre, and then, in 
a north-east direction, locate Wellington, about 2 inches to the 
right of Shrewsbury. Fourteen miles by the scale of the map, 
measured from Ludlow toward Wellington, will almost touch 
Larden Hall, its location being plainly indicated. Frances Acton, 
in her Old Castles and Mansions of Shropshire (1868), p. 28, has a 
large wood cut of this ancient seat of the family, which has been 
reproduced for this article. This, by the way, is the only view of 
Larden Hall which I have found, nor have I thus far found any 
view of the old salmon colored duel fighting chapel, probably 
founded about 1066? and reedified by John Lutwiche, of Lut- 
wiche, in the reign of Queen Bess. 

Bagshaw (p. 703) has the following: 

" More is a parish and township situated 2 miles north of 
Bishops Castle. This place takes its name from the family of 
More, who have been settled here since the 13th Century. 

" Linley is a township 3 miles N. E. of More, owned by the 
More family. Linley Hall is a handsome manor in the Grecian 
style of architecture, the seat and property of the More family." 

Rev. R. W. Eyton, in his Antiquities of Shropshire (London, 
1861, 12 vols.); in Vol. Ill, pp. 303 to 309 inclusive, gives a more 
extended descriptive account of Shipton parish, Shipton Church, 
and Larden and More Halls, and in Vol. II., pp. 39 to 42, gives an 
account of the More family and Linley Hall. 

Miss Frances Acton's work (already cited) can be referred to 
for cuts and descriptions of most of the historic sites connected 
with the history of this family. For Bishops Castle see pp. 14 to 
16; Hopton Castle, pp. 17 to 18; Langley Hall, pp. 29 to 30; Up- 
ton Cressett, p. 39; Lee Hall, pp. 41 to 42, etc., etc.* 

With these references to the historic seats and castles of 
Shropshire, so intimately associated with four of the Mayflower 
passengers, I will conclude this article, adding the suggestion 
that Larden Hall and Shipton Church be included with Scrooby 
Manor, Bradford's Austerfield Cottage and other similar places, 
as additional shrines for the future visitations of 20th Century 
Mayflower pilgrims.

1743; m. Mercy Mansfield, b. March 3, 1719, dau. of Capt. Moses 
and Margaret (Prout) Mansfield, prominent residents of New 
Haven, and granddaughter of Maj. Moses and Mercy (Glover) 

Maj. Moses Mansfield was a Judge and Proprietor of Mans- 
field, Conn. His dau. Abigail was the mother of Pres. Jeremiah 
Atwater of Middlebury College, Vt. His dau. Bathsheba, b. 1 
Jan., 1682; m. Joseph Chapman of Newport, R. I. Mercy was 
dau. of Henry Glover and sister of the wife of John Ball (1639- 
1703). Maj. Mansfield m. (2) Abigail, dau. of Thomas and Mary'

Margaret Prout was the sister of John Prout, Jr., Treasurer 
of Yale College and of Mary Prout who m. John Dixvvell of Bos- 
ton, son of Col. Dixwell the Regicide, and of Sarah Prout, wife 
of Christopher Christophers of New London. The three orphan 
children of John and Mary Dixwell were adopted by the Prout 
relatives. Another connection of Mrs. Throop was Mrs. Sarah 
Knight of Norwich who also had a farm near New London; 
a woman of unusual wealth and culture who left a diary edited 
and published by Theodore Dwight, that does not clear up the 
mystery that surrounds her. She was noticed in Miss Caulkin's 
History of New London. 

Mrs. Throop was greatly respected and Pres. Stiles inter- 
viewed her regarding the regicides when preparing his history. 
After her husband's earl)' death she returned to New Haven 
with her three sons, and d. 9 July, 1793. Her name is fre- 
quently seen in the land records in connection with the large 
Mansfield estates. 

Judge Whiting granted to John R. Throop and Edward 
Parker, both of New Haven, and Josiah Hinckley of Stratford, 
one-third each of lands in New Haven, being one-third of the 
confiscated estate of Nicholas Leechmore " who is with the 
enemy" — New Haven, Conn. Land Records, book 38, p. 524, 
date 27 June, 1783, and in book 44 of the same, p. 154, date 17 
March, 1791, Mercy Throope, William Monson, John R. Throop, 
William Cook and Margaret Gillet, all of New Haven, gave a 
quit claim deed to John Ball, Glover Ball, Isaac Dickerman 
and Hannah his wife, all of New Haven, of lands lying in that 
part of New Haven called Westfield and deeded to various 
parties by John Ball, grantee of Samuel Mansfield, deceased. 

Samuel Mansfield, brother of Mrs. Throop, m. Esther Hall of 
Middletown, and had Esther, b. 2 Nov., 1746; m. about 1773, Jacob, 
son of Abraham Thompson. Their dau. Mary was the mother 
of Rev. Eleazer Thompson Fitch, D. D., of Yale College. Another 
dau. of Samuel Mansfield was Margaret, b. 24 April, 1745; m. 27 
Feb., 1767, Gen. Benedict Arnold. She d. 19 June, 1775 before 
his treason, and he m. (2) Anne Shippen of Philadelphia. 

Lands of Esther Mansfield (widow of Samuel Mansfield) were 
sold in Aug., 1787, to satisfy a judgment against her held by 
Samuel Cook and wife Susannah (Mansfield), Mercey Throop, 
William Monson (son of Capt. Israel Monson who m. Margaret 
Mansfield), Benjamin Gillett and wife Margaret, Joseph Chris- 
tophers of Pownalberry, Maine, Henry Latimer and Sarah his 
wife of New London, Ichabod Wetmore and Elizabeth his wife 
of Middletown. 

Rev. William Throop was pastor at Mansfield, Conn., from 
ii Oct., 1744-5, to Jan. 15, 1746-7, and on 21 Sept., 1748, was in-

308 Tombstone Inscriptions* [Oct.. 


Easterly part of cemetery at Rahway, N. J., on St. George Avenue, formerly 

the cemetery of the old Presbyterian Church. Copied from stones 

standing in 1903. 

By George W. Thomas, Cranford, N. J. 

Notes.— The tombstones are crumbling away and letters are defacing. In many cases all 
the history of the dead that can now be known is that conveyed by these inscriptions. Early 
records were destroyed by fire during the Revolution, Church was burned, and early Elizabeth- 
town, N. J. records are lost. 

Where (verse) appears it indicates that the tombstone had one or more verses inscribed on 
it. (S. A. R. Monument) indicates that the Sons of the American Revolution have placed one 
of their iron monuments at the grave.

A National Historical Manuscripts Commission. 

A nation like the United States, which is, and has ever been, greatly 
engaged in making history, should be interested in everything pertaining to 
its history. It should be deeply interested both in the preservation and eluci- 
dation of its annals. Yet the United States has hitherto contented itself with 
the preservation of the bare record of its governmental acts, and this, too, only 
since the time when it became a federal government under the constitution of 
1787. It has left to private individuals and associations the difficult and 
important field of historical research, both in Europe and America, for the 
documentary evidence needed for the elucidation of its history. We do not 
forget the occasional aid which it has vouchsafed to those engaged in this field 
of labor,— as in the publication of the Peter Force documents, and the Madison, 
and a few other memoirs— but such assistance only emphasizes the fact that it 
has left to private enterprise this important branch of historical inquiry, and 

312 Editorial. [Oct., 

evinces the propriety of its assuming the responsibility for the efficient 
prosecution of the same. 

There are sufficient reasons for an early assumption of this task by our 
government, through the establishment of a historical manuscripts commission 
under whose direction a small annual appropriation shall be employed in 
searching the archives of Europe and of our own country, for material bearing 
upon American history. There are even reasons of state for doing so. Our 
government has more than once been compelled to scramble together the 
evidence to be used in international disputes — evidence which might have been 
procured in much better shape, and at far less cost, by a systematic search and 
arrangement of all documents bearing upon the history of this country. The 
great expense of one of these emergency searches has been estimated to equal 
the moderate expense of a regular manuscript commission for fifty years. The 
expediency of being prepared for future international disputes, admits of but 
little discussion. 

It is not, however, the expediency, but the Tightness of establishing a 
national historical commission, which appeals to us. We believe it to be the 
duty of the United States to interest itself in the increase of our knowledge of 
American history, and we are furthermore convinced that the assistance of this 
government is necessary before the archives of Europe can be made to give up 
their secrets. Only those who have been engaged in searching these archives 
know the obstacles which throng the path of the private investigator. 'To do 
large and effective work of this kind, there must be governmental action and 
authority. We shall never know what treasures of history Europe holds in 
store for us until this inestimable boon is conferred upon our students. 

European governments have long recognized this duty. England, from 
the appointment of Thomas Rymer as historiographer by William of Orange, 
in 1693, and the issue of his wonderful Faedera, by the support of Halifax, has 
gone on to the founding of the Record Commission, by Lord Colchester, in 
1800, and the establishment of the Historical Manuscripts Commission, in 1869. 
France, besides the creation of its Historical Manuscripts Commission, in 1833, 
has been for a century calendaring all its historic archives. Holland, Italy and 
Spain have all done more in this direction than the United States. Even the 
Dominion of Canada has done more for American history than our own 
government, having printed full abstracts of the two hundred volumes of the 
Haldimand papers which form the only full and authentic documentary record 
of our American revolution. It may be said also in this connection that 
substantial honors have accompanied the publication of the collections of these 
governments. The volumes issued by them take precedence of all other 
literature in the great reference libraries of Europe. The magnificent collec- 
tion, issued by the British government, is the first object that strikes the student's 
eye, as he enters the "Salle du Travail " in the Bibliotheque Nationale, in Paris, 
the reference shelves of which are so limited, that only the most essential 
works are given place therein. The American student cannot but regret that 
the United States lags so far behind other nations in the recognition of its duty 
towards its own history, and, with all its wealth and civilization, fails to occupy 
an honorable place in the great reference libraries of the world. 

Moreover the possibilities of such a national manuscripts commission are 
very great. Here in our own country there are priceless colonial records lying 
dust-covered and forgotten in county court houses — like those of the New York 
Supreme Court, buried in the basement of the New York County Court 
building — which wait to be discovered and printed in abstract for the use of 
students of our colonial history. It may be urged, and perhaps justly, that such 
work should be done by the several States. The States themselves, however, 
have not as yet done much in this direction, and probably never will until the 
federal government, by its initiative, stimulates them to do so. Indeed the 
stimulus which the United States would give to the several States by the 
establishment of such a commission as we are urging, might prove to be one of 
the most beneficial results of the creation of this commission. But it is the 
foreign work of the commission that is most important, and the greatest discover- 
ies must be expected abroad. The commission might, for instance, be able to 
procure in Paris the details of the French co-operation in our revolution, 
matters whjch would interest our military students; or it might procure data in 

'9°5-J Obituary. 3 [ 3 

London, Amsterdam and Madrid, concerning the early colonization of this 
country, material which would interest our historical students; or, what would 
be of lively interest to our genealogical students, it might find the passenger 
lists of the vessels in which our forefathers embarked for this country, and so 
inform us when they came to America, and the ports from whence they sailed. 
These are merely illustrations of the possible discoveries which a federal 
commission might not unreasonably be expected to make. If private individ- 
uals like Waters and Withington, with only their personal influence to assist 
them, have been able to do much for the furtherance of historical genealogical 
knowledge, what might not be accomplished by those who wielded the 
authority of a national commission, and were backed by the whole weight of 
the influence of the United States ? 

We are satisfied from our correspondence that the genealogical public 
will welcome the establishment of a national manuscripts commission, and we 
also believe that the members of our historical societies throughout the 
United States, as well as every intelligent student of his country's history, 
will hail the creation of this commission with delight. We shall await ex- 
pectantly the issue of events to see whether the wishes of this large and influ- 
ential body of citizens will be fulfilled by our legislators. 


Darling, Charles William, at one time a member of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society, died June 22, 1905, at his summer home 
in Asbury Park, N. J., aged seventy-four years. He was born October II, 1830, 
in New Haven, Conn., and was the son of the Rev. Charles Chauncey Darling, 
a Presbyterian clergyman of New York City, by his wife Adeline E., daughter 
of William and Eliza Dana of Boston, Mass., and granddaughter of Major 
Robert Davis, an officer of artillery in the war of the Revolution. His grand- 
father, Dr. Samuel Darling, a graduate of Yale, and a physician of New Haven, 
married Clarinda, daughter of the Rev. Richard Ely of Saybrook, Conn. His 
greatgrandfather, Judge Thomas Darling of New Haven, who married Abigail 
Noyes, (granddaughter of the Rev. James Pierpont of New Haven, one of the 
founders of Yale College), was the son of Samuel Darling, who was born in 
England in 1695, and came to New Haven in 1722, where he died in 1760. 

He was educated in New York City, and graduated from the New York 
University. After his graduation he travelled in England and on the continent. 
Upon his return to the United States, he connected himself with the National 
Guard of the State of New York, and when Edwin D. Morgan was elected 
governor, he became a member of his staff. During the New York City riots, 
of 1863, his discharge of the dfficult and dangerous duties of his office won the 
admiration of the civil and military authorities. In 1864 Col. Darling was 
appointed Aide-de-Camp on the staff of Gen. Benjamin F. Butler, then in 
command of the Army of the James, and was assigned to special duty. The 
following year, when Reuben E. Fenton was elected governor, he received an 
appointment on his staff as assistant Paymaster General, a position of much 
responsibility, during the war, and in 1867, on the re-election of Governor 
Fenton, he was appointed Military Engineer-in-Chief of the State of New York, 
with the rank of Brigadier General. 

Gen. Darling, in 1869, again visited England, and was the recipient of 
many courtesies from the English authorities. He subsequently travelled 
extensively in Europe, Asia and Africa, and his absence abroad covered a 
period of about ten years. Upon his return, in 1879, he removed from New 
York City to Utica, N. Y., where he resided until his death. Possessing inde- 
pendent means, he was able to gratify his scholarly tastes, and wrote and 
published many papers upon historical subjects, the best of which pertain to 
Egypt. He was connected with many historical and scientific societies; was 
for many years the corresponding secretary of the Oneida Historical Society; 
was also a member of the Advisory Council of the World's Congress, auxil- 
iary to the Columbian Exposition, in the department of historical literature; 

3 14 Correction, Queries, Book Notices. [Oct., 

was a member of the American Authors' Guild; associate member of the Vic- 
toria Institute of India; honorary member of the Egyptian Exploration Com- 
pany, and secretary of the fund for the promotion of its work. He was further- 
more the recipient of a decoration, granted by the Society of Science, Letters

of Jacob A. Robertson of New York City, and granddaughter of Archibald 
Robertson, the Scotch artist, who, while a guest of the first President of the 
United States, painted from life the celebrated miniature, on ivory, of General 
and Martha Washington. He left no immediate family. 


Beuell. — In the July number of the Record, the correction as to husband

The Tenney Family, or the Descendants of Thomas Tenney, of 
Rowley, Mass., 1638-1904. Revised, with partial records of Prof. Jonathan 
Tenney. By M. J. Tenney, Concord, N. H. The Rumford Press. 1904. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 690. 

This is a large genealogy, plainly printed, and bound with a full index of 
names, and illustrated with family portraits. The English home of the Ten- 
neys at Rowley, on the Yorkshire Wolds, County of Yorkshire, England, is 
described, followed by a mass of records, conveniently arranged for reference, 
embracing collateral lines, with a short biography of many of the descendants

of Thomas Tenney, who came to Salem, Mass., in 1638, a member of the 
Rev. Ezekial Rogers' company, and settled in Rowly, Mass., in 1639. A fine 
heliotype portrait of the woman who has gathered and published these records 
forms a fitting frontispiece to the work. 

Collections of the New York Historical Society for the 
Year 1897. Publication Fund Series. 8vo, cloth, pp. 577. 

This volume, the sixth of the series, contains Abstracts of Wills and Letters 
of Administration recorded in the New York Surrogates Office, from Sept. 3, 
1760, to Dec. 29, 1766. As in the former volumes, no proper names are omitted, 
nor anything that can throw light upon genealogy or real estate. 

Samuel Griffin of New Castle County, on Delaware, Planter, 


Streets, M. D., U. S. N. Philadelphia, Pa. 1905. l2mo, pp. 235. 

After reading Dr. Streets' preface to this book, one is impressed with the 
fact that although the author may not have published all he has heard about 
the Griffins, he has dug pretty deep, and gives such history as admits of proof. 
The book is very interesting and is Number Two of " Some Allied Families of 
Kent Co., Delaware." 

A Book of Blanks has been published to aid those who are interested 
in their ancestral history, to keep their family and genealogical records, notes, 
and data in systematic and get-at-able condition. Those making use of it 
should find it a convenience and help in their researches and a satisfaction and 
pride to have on their book-shelves a good-lookn.g volume of their own family 
history. Published by W. G. De Witt, 201 East 12th St., New York City. Cloth, 
$1.00 net; postage, 10 cents. The family name will be stamped on the book as 
part of the title for 50 cents extra. 

Genealogy of the Westervelt Family. By the late Walter Tall- 
man Westervelt. New York. Tobias A. Wright. 1905. 8vo, cloth, pp. VII+175. 

Years ago the compiler came into the possession of some fragmentary 
notes, collected by one of his earlier ancestors, comprising data relating to the 
numerous families who were identified wilh the history of Bergen County, N. J., 
in colonial days. Among these families was that of Westervelt, and after 
tracing his own line of descent through this and allied families, the work be- 
came so interesting that he was led to make further researches, to preserve at 
least an outline of the history of that family for this and future generations. 
He has done his work well, and the result is a good genealogy of the 
Westervelt family, and a beautiful book. The record of names begins with 
Dirk Van Westervelt of Holland, born about 1550, and continues, giving the 
name, date of birth, marriage and death, and such other biographical matter 
as could be obtained, not only of direct lines, but of many collateral descen- 
dants, with a complete index of names. The illustrations are a portrait of the 
compiler, the Van Westervelt coat-of-arms, old Westervelt house, at New 
Hackensack, and portrait of Hon. Jacob Aaron Westervelt. Mrs. Elizabeth 
W. Westervelt, widow of the compiler, has erected a fitting monument to her 
late husbands memory in the publication of this book. 

New England Cox Families. A series of Genealogical papers issued 
in parts. By Rev. John H. Cox. West Harwick, Mass. 1905. 8vo, pamphlet, 
pp. 10. 

This is No. 16, and continues the descendants of Robert Cox from page 
64, No. 8.

Prescott, The Hartwell Branch, and several minor articles. 


Book Notices. [Oct., 

History of the Old Tennent Church. Second Edition. Rev. Frank 
R. Symmes. Cranbury, N. J. George W. Burroughs. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. 

In the first edition of this work, which was published in 1897, Mr. Symmes 
laid the foundation for this very complete and finished production. The book 
has been rewritten, with corrections and very many additions, including a num- 
ber of new pictures and maps. A notable feature, most rare in church 
histories, is an appendix of nearly three hundred pages, of which almost two 
hundred are vital records. There is a list of soldiers' graves, with the military 
services of those buried there. Nearly one hundred pages of genealogy and a 
general index complete the book. It is good to see that the early baptismal 
records are literal transcripts, and that the later ones are printed up to the year 
1903. This method gives one the comfortable assurance of having the entire 
church record to consult, the only exceptions being some unhappy references 
in the original. The book is well printed and copiously illustrated, and will 
prove of great value in Monmouth County research. It may be obtained of 
Rev. Frank R. Symmes, Tennent, N. J., and costs $5.00 ; expressage 25 cents. 

Lexington, Mass., Record of Births, Marriages and Deaths, to 
January i, 1898. Boston. Wright and Potter Printing Company. 1898. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. IX+484. 

The arrangement of this book is at once pleasing to the eye and mind. The 
position of the sections concerning birth, marriage and death, is shown by index 
edges, and the names therein are alphabetically arranged. The sources of in- 
formation are town records, records of the " Church of Christ in Cambridge," 
and the " Church of the First Congregational Society in Lexington," and a copy, 
made by the late Rev. Lucius R. Paige, of the original Cambridge records. 

The Record of a Century of Church Life of the Reformed 
Church, Warwick, N. Y., 1804-1904. Warwick Valley Despatch. 1904. 
8vo, boards, pp. 131. 

While the Reformed Church organization in Warwick only dates from 
1804, when the Classis of Paramus organized the church, the society inherited 
its property and its people from a Presbyterian body existent in Warwick as 
early as 1750, but long since passed away. The book, therefore, rightly begins 
with a history, so far as known, of the Presbyterian Church of Warwick, fol- 
lowed by that of the present Society. There is a list of members for one 
hundred years, and the pages are interspersed with many interesting and valu- 
able illustrations. 

History of the Arnold Tavern, Morristown, N. J. Philip H. 
Hoffman. Morristown. Chronicle Press. 1903. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 31. 

This little brochure sets forth, in a very readable way, the history of a 
tavern made famous by General Washington's occupancy of it as his head- 
quarters. The account is abundantly illustrated. 

Transactions of the Huguenot Society of South Carolina, 
No. 12. Charleston. Walker, Evans & Cogswell Co. 1905. 8vo, pamphlet, 
pp. 64. 

This number contains articles on Huguenot immigration in South Carolina, 
and the Du Foussat family, and several early wills, besides other matter of 

The Connecticut Magazine. Vol. IX, No. 3. 

A number of important articles appear in this issue, among them being 
The Building of a Model Municipality (Hartford), Genealogy of the Lines 
Family, and Notes from an Old Diary on the Perkins Family. The illustra- 
tions are beautiful, and the make-up of the magazine is greatly to be commended. 

The Record of my Ancestry. Addenda et Corrigenda. By 
Charles L. Newhall. 16 pp., pamphlet. 1905. 

I9°5-1 Book Notices. 317 

Public Papers of George Clinton, First Governor of New York. 
Vol. VII, VIII. Edited by Hon. Hugh Hastings, State Historian. Albany. 
Oliver A. Quayle. 1904. 8vo, cloth, pp. LVI+633, XXXVI+467. 

The Revolutionary series of the public papers of Governor Clinton ends 
with the seventh volume, the eighth being taken up with the restless period 
immediately following the struggle. The index to the first seven volumes will 
appear in a volume by itself, and on its appearance the value of the series will 
be greatly enhanced. 

Some of the Ancestors and the Children of Nathaniel Wilson, 
Esq. Henry Winthrop Hardon, A. M., LL.B. 1905. Chart. 

Mr. Hardon has been able, by means of taste and care, to compress a great 
deal of information into chart form while retaining the clear cut outlines so 
vital to this type of family record. He has been able to trace the English 
residence of a number of the immigrant ancestors of whom he treats, and he 
states the American dwelling-place in every case. For arrangements appear- 
ance and completeness it is an admirable pedigree chart. 

A Volume of Records relating to the Early History of Bos- 
ton, containing Minutes of the Selectmen's Meetings, 1709 to, and including 
1810. 8vo, cloth, pp. 504. Boston. The Municipal Printing Co. 1904. 

This volume, which is the thirty-third in the series, completes the eighteenth 
and nineteenth books of the original records of Selectmen's Minutes. It has a 
full index of names, places and subjects. 

The Magazine of History, with Notes and Queries. July, 1905. New 
York. William Abbott. 

The student of history will be charmed with this first number of volume 
two. "The Progress of Discovery of the Mississippi River," "A Journey 
Through New England and New York in 1818,'' " Rev. Jonathan Odell Arnold's 
Confidant," "Civil War Sketches," "Original Documents," etc., are among its 
contributions. A feature of this magazine is a department of Genealogical 

Ancestry of Bridget Younge, Daughter of William Younge of Cayn- 
ton, Co. Salop, Esq., and wife of George Willys of Fenny Compton, County 
Warwick, Esq., Governor of the Colony of Connecticut in 1642. 

A 32 page pamphlet, made up principally of additions to an account of 
" The First Wife of Gov. Willys of Connecticut, and her Family," published in 
the New England Register in 1899. 

Series of Plans of Boston, showing Existing Ways and Owners of 
Property, 1630-1635-1640-1645. Compiled by George Lamb. Pamphlet of 
Maps. Boston. Municipal Printing Office. 1905. 

This is a supplement to vol. 2, Boston Town Records and Book of 

A Genealogical and Biographical Record of the Savery 
Families and of the Severy Family (Severit, Savery, Savory and Savary), 
descended from early immigrants to New England and Philadelphia, with in- 
troductory articles on the origin and history of the names, and of English fam- 
ilies of the name Savery in its various forms ; a detailed sketch of the life and 
labors of William Savery, Minister of the Gospel in the Society of Friends; 
and appendixes containing an account of Savery's invention of the steam 
engine, and extracts from English, New England and Barbadoes records, re- 
lating to families of both names. By A. W. Savary, M. A., of Anapolis Royal, 
N. S., Judge of the County Court of Nova Scotia ; assisted in the Genealogy by 
Miss Lydia A. Savary of East Wareham, Mass. 8vo, cloth, pp. 324+XX. 
Boston. The Collins Press. 1893. Price $5.00 and 25c extra for postage, for 

318 Book Notices. [Oct., 

complete work ; or $1.50 and 12c extra for postage, for supplement, bound 

The title so fully describes this work, and Judge Savary is so well known 
to genealogists and libraries that it is only necessary to add that it contains 29 
fine illustrations and a good index. 

Genealogy of the Family of Timothy and Eunice (Ellsworth) 
Green. By John Morton Greene. Lowell, Mass. The Union Printing Co. 
1904. Small 8vo, cloth, pp. VI-f-227. 

" Desiring to keep to facts, I begin with our ancestor, Timothy Green, Sr., 
and have, with few exceptions, recorded in this book the names of all his de- 
scendants and whom they married, to this date," says the compiler in his 
preface. He has also aimed to make the records complete of those who served 
in the Civil War and in the Revolution. The book is well printed and bound, 
and contains an index of fifteen hundred names. 

The Eagle's History of Poughkeepsie, from the Earliest Settlement, 
1683 to 1905. By Edmund Piatt. Large quarto, cloth, pp. 328. Poughkeepsie. 
Piatt & Piatt. 1005. 

This beautiful quarto has evidently been compiled with great care and 
ability by Mr. Edmund Piatt, who has unusual facilities for examining old 
records, newspaper files, etc. " The early County records are surprisingly 
complete," says Mr. Piatt, " when one considers that they have been through 
two Court house fires, and contain much interesting historical matter which has 
been previously overlooked." The book is illustrated with many fine portraits, 
views of historic buildings, maps, facsimiles of old documents, etc., has an 
exhaustive table of contents, and full index of names. It is to be regretted that 
the work does not include genealogical sketches of the old families, but the 
author has endeavored to indicate where the most prominent families come 
from, and when they settled in the neighborhood. 

Genealogy of the Descendants of John White of VVenham and 
Lancaster, Mass. 1638-1905. In 3 vols. By Almira Larkin White. Vol. III. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 755. Haverhill, Mass. Press of Nichols, " The Printer." 1905. 

The first volume contains a complete genealogy of the family to the fifth 
generation, then branches of the older children to the present day, with wills, 
deeds and war records ; also a complete copy of Mrs. Mary (White) Rowland- 
son's " Removes," giving her captivity amony the Indians (first printed in 
1682). This volume contains nine hundred and thirty pages and forty-eight full 
page illustrations — homesteads, groups, portraits and places and things of 
interest to the family. This is complete for hundreds of families ; the first and 
second are complete without the third, also the first and third without the 
second ; therefore any one wishing for one or more can have what he wishes. 
The second and third volumes contain branches from the fifth generation to the 
present day. The whole work comprises two thousand six hundred and ten 
pages and one hundred and forty full page illustrations, each being well printed 
on good paper, fully indexed and well bound in cloth. 

History of Old Pine Street. Being the record of one hundred and 
forty years in the life of a Colonial Church, with 72 full page illustrations. By 
Hughes Oliphant Gibbons, eighth Pastor of the Church. 8vo, cloth, pp. 366. 
Philadelphia. The John C. Winston Co. 1905. 

When this Pine Street house of worship was built, Philadelphia was a pro- 
vincial town of some twenty-five thousand inhabitants, hence its history has a 
peculiar interest to all Philadelphians. The book is up-to-date in its design, the 
illustrations being particularly good. 

The Order of the Cincinnati in France. Its Organization and 
History ; with the Military or Naval records of the French members who be- 
came such by reason of qualifying service in the Army or Navy of France, or 
of the United States, in the War of the Revolution for American Indepen-

dence. By Asa Bird Gardiner, LL.D., L. H. D., M.H., President of the Rhode 
Island Society, and Secretary-General of the Order. Large octavo, white 
cloth, blue and gold stamped, pp. 243. Published by the Rhode Island State 
Society of the Cincinnati. 1905. Edition limited to 350 copies. 

Aside from the historic interest of this work of Col. Gardiner, the volume 
will appeal to the artistic sense of every book lover. Seldom has any Order 
or Society issued so complete and beautiful a memorial, but the space allotted 
to the reviewer in this magazine does not admit of any detailed analysis or 
description of this unique publication. It has been prepared wholly from official 
sources, including the Archives of the Order and Records of the Republic of 
France, and for the first time is now given a record of the Order in France and 
a Roster of the eminent French Cincinnati, whose public services illumined 
their country's history at a most interesting and eventful epoch_and added to 
the renown of the illustrious Military Society of which they were members. The 
artotype illustrations in this memorial have been taken from the Gallery of 
Marshals of France at Versailles, and from other authentic portraits, of which 
a number belong to the collection of Mr. Henry Russell Drowne, an Hereditary 
Member of the Order in Rhode Island, and present Secretary of the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society. 


Mrs. Fannie C. W. Barbour, 169 Hicks Street, Brooklyn, N. Y., is compil- 
ing a genealogy of the descendants of Richard Spelman, born in Danbury, 
Essex Co., England. He came to America about 1700, and settled in Middle- 
town, Conn. She requests all descendants, boti. n the male and female lines, 
who have not already done so, to communicate with her at once, making all 
data as complete and as up to date as possible. Pedigree blanks will be sent 
upon request.
