Vol. XXXIX. NEW YORK. JANUARY, 1908. No. i 



REV. MELATIAH EVERETT DWIGHT, M. D., D. D. 



By Tobias A. Wright. 



Dr. Dwight was born in South Hadley, Mass., Oct. 15, 1841, 
and died Sept. 15, 1907, on the heights of Mt. Holyoke, Mass., 
where his summer home overlooked the place of his birth. He 
was the eldest son of John Dwight of New York City, and grand- 
son of Dr. Elihu Dwight of South Hadley, Mass., who was the 
eldest son of Justus Dwight and grandson of Capt. Nathaniel 
Dwight, both of Belchertown, Mass. The latter was fourth in 
descent from John Dwight of Dedham. His mother was Nancy 
Shaw Everett, daughter of Metcalf Everett of Foxboro, Mass., 
the son of John Everett and Melatiah Metcalf, daughter of 
Samuel Metcalf of Wrentham, Mass. 

Dr. Dwight's boyhood and youth were spent in New York 
City, where his father was laying the foundation of a business 
prosperity that became the source of widely distributed benevo- 
lence. He studied in the public schools of this city, and the 
New York University Grammar School; graduated from the 
College of the City of New York in i860; studied medicine at 
Thirteenth Street Medical College, graduating with the degree, 
of M. D. from the latter in 1864; studied theology at Andover 
Theological Seminary, and was graduated in 1866. Being under 
appointment by the American Board of Commissioners for 
Foreign Missions as missionary to Turkey, he continued his 
medical studies at Bellevue Hospital Medical College, 1866-1867, 
travelled in Europe, Egypt and the Holy Land, 1 867-1 868, but 
on his return was constrained by ill health to give up his ap- 
pointment as foreign missionary, and seek a home-missionary 
field. He was ordained and installed February, 1869, over the 
Congregational Church of Onarga, Illinois, where he remained 
until 1879, and was then called to the Congregational Church of 
Fairfield, Iowa, of which he was the pastor until 1888, when he 
resigned on account of pulmonary trouble. Being obliged to 
relinquish the active work of the ministry, and place himself 
under medical treatment, he removed to Plainfield, N. J., where 
he remained for eleven years. In 1900 he was called to New 
York City to be the companion of his aged father, (whose death 



2 Rev. Melatiah Everett Dwight, M.D., D.D. [Jan., 

occurred in November, 1903,) and continued his winter residence 
here, summering at Northampton, Mass., until the time of his 
death. 

During the years of his pastorate in churches and his mis- 
sionary work, he not only won a strong and commanding 
influence in the communities where he lived, but came to wide 
recognition in ecclesiastical affairs in the local and State asso- 
ciations of his denomination. He was made a trustee in the 
Congregational Church Building Society in 1906, and received 
that same year the degree of D. D. from Parsons College. 

Dr. Dwight took a very active interest in the " National 
Federation of Churches and Christian Workers " and gave much 
of his time and means to the Inter-Church Conference on Feder- 
ation, held in New York City in 1905, acting as Chairman of 
Committee on Meetings. In fact it was largely through his 
efforts and financial contribution that an exhaustive report of 
that organization was published in book form. 

The leading religious Journals of this country have published 
extended obituaries of Dr. Dwight, paying high tribute to his 
zeal, to the beauty of his character, and his successful labors in 
the service of his divine Master, and it is not the purpose of this 
memorial to enlarge upon the record of the noble service of 
this man in the Church — abler pens have told the story of his 
devotion — but rather to treat of his work in our own Society. 

When in 1894 he became a member of the New York Genealog- 
ical and Biographical Society, and began attending its meetings, 
no one could have predicted that this modest gentleman, small 
in stature and pale of face, bearing evidence of ill-health and 
constitutional feebleness, was destined soon to lead in the work 
of the Society, become the strong, loyal and trusted friend of 
every member, and largely instrumental in the upbuilding of 
our cause. Becoming interested in genealogical and historical 
studies, Dr. Dwight began giving to the world the results of his 
researches in 1898 by publishing a genealogical record and 
history of ^'■The Kirbys of New England" followed in 1901, by 
"■The Journal of Nathaniel Dwight, 177s •" Recognizing the 
assistance he had received in the preparation of these works 
from our Society's publications and Library, he began devoting 
himself to increasing and enlarging their resources, by giving of 
his own time and means, and by his enthusiasm and energy 
stimulating his fellow members to greater efforts, appealing to 
the strong, encouraging the weak, and harmonizing all with the 
matchless grace of his charming personality. He recognized 
the need of cooperation, and with magical diplomacy he brought 
men together and held them for good. Who could resist the 
kindly smile and the flashes of subtle humor that made his 
presence so agreeable? Who could go out of that presence 
without feeling that he had been in touch with a nobility without 
ostentation, a royalty without arrogance ? In 190 1 he was elected 
a member of the Board of Trustees, and in the following year 
editor of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. 
Though his predecessors had been such learned and eminent 



igoS.] Rev. Melatiah Everett Divight, M. D., D.D. 3 

genealogists as Dr. Henry Reed Stiles and the late Dr. Samuel S. 
Purple, the magazine grew in importance and dignity under his 
guidance, wielding a wider influence. He took special pride in 
this publication, defraying the expense of illustrations out of his 
private means, contributing to the cost of indexing its volumes 
each year, and paying the entire outlay of making a complete 
index of subjects of thirty-eight volumes of the Record from the 
beginning of its publication in 1869, down to 1907, which the 
Society printed. This was the work he loved, and perhaps no 
where did his abilities show to better advantage. 

To him genealogy was as legitimate a study as any other 
branch of history, leading him into the past in quest of types of 
pure manhood. It was a great storehouse from which to draw 
examples of goodness and greatness to be emulated and imitated, 
and of vice and vileness to be abhorred and avoided. The 
gartered knight and the crest of royalty had no special charm 
for him; "The simple annals of the poor" developed fields as 
rich in christian virtues, and the blood of simple, honest yeomen 
transmitted traits as worthy of emulation. 

In 1905 he was unanimously elected President of the Society 
in which capacity he served with marked ability until the time of 
his demise. For many years he served as the Society's necrolo- 
gist, and it will long be remembered by those who attended the 
annual meetings with what reverence and sympathy he read the 
brief memoirs which he had carefully prepared of the Society's 
dead. 

His benevolence was boundless, and his daily generosity 
proved the very love he had of giving. The extent of his charity 
will never be known, for it was absolutely without ostentation. 
He waited not for appeals but watched for opportunities to assist 
the poor and needy, and found them in plenty. Of such was this 
man whose gentle spirit has gone to the Great Eternal and whose 
kindly face we shall see no more. 

Dr. Dwight was a member of the New England Historic- 
Genealogical Society, the New York Academy of Science, the 
Rhode Island Chapter of the Society of the Cincinnati, and the 
New York Gamma Chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa Society. He 
married in Jacksonville, 111., June 23, 1870, Helen McClure Kirby, 
daughter of Rev. William Kirby and Hannah McClure Wolcott, 
who with three sons and two daughters survive him. 



The action of the Board of Trustees of the New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Society, the Committee of the Congre- 
gational Church of Fairfield, Iowa, the Congregational Church 
Building Society, and the City College Club of New York, form 
an appropriate addition to this tribute to Dr. Dwight: 

At a joint meeting of the Board of Trustees and of the 
Executive Committee of the New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society held in the Society's office, November 12, 1907, 
it being the first formal Fall meeting of the Board of Trustees 
following the death of our late President, Rev. Melatiah Everett 



4 Rev. Melatiah Everett Dwight, M.D., D.D. [Jan., 

Dwight, D. D., M. D,, the following resolutions were unanimously 
passed, viz.: 

Whereas, death has removed from our midst our late President, 
Rev. Melatiah Everett Dwight, D. D., M. D., who in addition to 
his office as President, Trustee and Necrologist of the Society, 
and Editor of the Record, had for many years served as a member 
of the Executive Committee, and: 

Whereas, his excellent judgment, genial disposition and 
uniform gentleness and courtesy of manner, had endeared him 
to all members of the Board of Trustees and of the Executive 
Committee: 

Resolved, that in his death the Society, Board of Trustees 
and Executive Committee have lost a most valuable associate 
whose memory will always be dear to those with whom he was 
brought in contact: 

Resolved, that these Resolutions be engrossed and a copy 
sent to the family of Doctor Dwight; and that they be spread 
upon the minutes of this Society, and that a copy of them be 
published in the January, 1908, issue of The New York Genea- 
logical AND Biographical Record. 

Fairfield, Iowa, September 26, 1907. 
Dear Mrs. Dwight and Family: 

We, as a church, desire to express our sympathy for you in 
your deep affliction. It is only a few days since we heard that 
our beloved pastor of former days has been called to be with our 
Heavenly Father in the Home above. We hope that you will be 
sustained, and that strength will be given you to bear this great 
loss. We feel that it is our loss too, for we remember his kind- 
ness of heart toward every one, his broad sympathies. His life 
with us was a blessing and a benediction and we are thankful 
to our Heavenly Father that we had him with us in the years 
that are past. Very sincerely yours, 

Mrs. a. S. Jordan, 
F. J. L. Black, 
Mrs. John Wells, 
Committee in behalf of the Church. 

At a meeting of the Board of Trustees of The Congregational 
Church Building Society, held on Wednesday, September 18, 
1907, the following resolutions were presented by the Rev. 
Charles L. Goodrich, pastor of the First Congregational Church 
of Plainfield, N. J., of which Mr. Dwight was a member, and 
they were unanimously adopted: 

Whereas it has pleased Almighty God in his wise providence 
to take out of this world our fellow-Trustee, Rev. Melatiah 
Everett Dwight, D. D., 

Resolved: That we, the Board of Trustees of the Congre- 
gational Church Building Society, do hereby express our sense 
of the great loss which the Board sustains in this removal, 
gratefully recognizing the able as well as faithful and interested 



igo'.] The Dutch Titus Family. ^ 

service which he rendered this Society; that we put on record 
our appreciation of his personal character, the genial and cheery 
temperament with its gleams of humor, the mind keen and alert 
with unusual originality of thought and expression, the spirit 
devout, consecrated, singularly unworldly, the heart full of human 
kindness, the hands rich in helpfulness, finding many ways even 
in years of partial illness to minister to humanity. A brother 
beloved, one of God's chosen ones has gone from us.

To THE Family of Rev, Melatiah E. Dwight: 

At the last meeting of the City College Club, it was unani- 
mously resolved that in the death of Rev. Melatiah E. Dwight, 
long and honorably known as a loyal and distinguished alumnus 
of the College of the City of New York, the club has suffered 
the loss of one of its noblest members. 

The City College Club sends its sympathy to you in your 
bereavement and trusts that the memory of a good name and 
work done efficiently will be a source of consolation.

THE DUTCH TITUS FAMILY. 



By Frank H, Titus, M.D., Dover, N, H. 



This might with propriety be called the American Titus 
family, as it originated, as far as the name is concerned in Kings 
Co., N. Y. 

The founder of the family was Titus Syrachs De Vries, who 
according to Bergen's Register of Early Settlers of Kings County, 
and Riker's yi «««/.? of Newtown, immigrated to this country at an 
early date. He was part owner of a gristmill operated by horse- 
power in New Utrecht in 1660, He was Lieut, of an Infantry 
Co, of Flatbush in 1673, and was probably promoted, as he is also 
styled Captain. That he was probably of the noble De Vries 
family of Holland is indicated not only by his name, which should 
have been Titus Syrachs simply had he been of the commonalty, 
but more suggestively that some of his children at least were 
baptized as Tryntje Titus De Vries, Syrach Titus De Vries, etc. 

For some reason difficult to conjecture his children all seem 
to have dropped the name of de Vries and adhered to the less 

lA 



6 The Dutch Titus Family. [Jan., 

euphonious one, which, in accordance with the untrammeled 
custom of the time, they spelled as the fancy of the moment 
suggested Tetus, Tietus, Tites, Titos, Tytus or more often Titus. 
There still remains one branch which uses the spelling " Tytus," 
but the other forms seem to have disappeared. 

Possibly the change of the name was in the nature of pro- 
tective imitation as practiced by various forms of animated 
creatures lower than the human. Dutch blood was probably not as 
highly esteemed just after the land had passed from Dutch into 
English control as it is in- our day, and the Britons have never 
been specially noted for tender consideration of the susceptibilities 
of those unwise enough to have been born under other skies. 
So the proximity of the large Titus family of English descent, 
who were numerous in the adjoining county, may have suggested 
the adoption of the father's given name according to the Dutch 
usage as a means of escaping the undesirable advertisement of 
their foreign blood. Or they may have felt the incongruity a 
noble name and the plebian occupations necessary for wringing a 
livelihood out of a new country. Be that as it may, De Vries 
they were; Titus their descendants are.

1688 (Bergen), or 1690 (Riker); he m. Jannetje Teunise, dau. of

This line adheres to the spelling " Tytus;" but the recurrence 
of the family names is a good indication that they were of the 
same stock as the "Titus" family in the same neighborhood;

and the County records reveal the fact that they did not always 
adhere to the one spelling, but used both indiscriminately. 

Titus Titus seemed to have been a favorite name with the 
older generation. Besides Titus' (Francis," Titus'), there are 
known to have been five others if not more.

Camden, N. J., evidently of this stock, but whose connection 
with the parent stem cannot at present be demonstrated. 

From the foregoing it will be seen that the available inform- 
ation of this family is very fragmentary, and as a search through 
the usual channels fails to yield further data, this article is pub- 
lished not only to put on record in a tangible shape the little 
already known, but in the hope that it may be the means of 
eliciting further information from sources hitherto undiscovered.

THE KNICKERBOCKER FAMILY. 



By William B. Van Alstyne, M.D. 



The Knickerbocker family of New York, rendered famous by 
the genius of Washington Irving, has never to our knowledge 
been printed in genealogical form. This we now endeavor to do 
for the first four or five generations. Pains have been taken to 
secure accuracy and authorities are given for most statements. 
Traditions are current in the family concerning its origin and 
history in Holland, but these the writer, not finding leisure to 
verify them, has omitted. He has encountered many early spell- 
ings of the name of the family, such as Knikkerbakker, Knikkel- 
bakker, and Knikkenbakker, but has adhered to the present 
spellings, Knickerbacker and Knickerbocker. Authorities differ 
as to the origin of the name Knickerbocker. William Arthur 
(Derivation of Family Names, ^. iTj) derives it from knacker, a 
cracker, and backer, a baker; while Edward M. Smith {History of 
RJiinebeck, N. Y., p. 174) derives it from knikker, a marble, and 
bakker, a baker. Consensus of opinion favors the latter ex- 
planation, r ., r -1 

Harmen Jansen Knickerbocker, the ancestor of the family, 
came to this country from Holland prior to 1683 and settled at 
Albany, N. Y. Occasionaly he added the termination Van Wie to 
his nam'e indicating that he came from Wie, the present Wyhe, a 
few miles south of Zwolle, in the Province of Overyssel, Holland. 

In 1683, Harman Jansz Knickelbacker and Lysbet Harmensz 
were members of the Dutch Reformed Church at Albany ( Year 
Book, 1004, of the Holland Society of New York, p. 5). 

On 6 May, 1684, Harmen Jansen Knickerbocker deeded land 
in Albany to Mews Hogeboom (Book 531, Public Records of Al- 
bany Co). On 2 June, 1688, Peter Schuyler received a grant of 
land in Dutchess County near Red Hook. In 1689 he sold one- 
half of one-fourth of the patent to Harme Gansevoort of Albany, 
the fourth laying north of a line due east from a point on the 
river opposite the south end of Slipstein Island, the small island 
north of Cruger's. On i May, 1704, Gansevoort sold his moiety 
to Harme Jans Knickerbocker. In 1722 Schuyler divided the 
upper fourth of his patent into thirteen lots, seven of which he 
deeded to Lawrence, Cornelius, Evert and Pieter Knickerbocker 
of Dutchess County, Anthony Bogardus of Albany, and Jannetje, 
his wife, Jan Vosburgh of Dutchess County, and Cornelia, his 
wife, sons and daughters of Harmen Janse Knickerbocker, late of 
Dutchess County, deceased (Smith's History of Rhmebeck, N. K, 

In April, 1698, the Earl of Bellomont succeeded Fletcher as 
Governor; in July he made a journey in great state to Albany 
and Schenectady, staying two weeks in the former and two days 
in the latter place, " My Lady " accompanying him. Among the

items of expense were *'^i 17.?. to Harme Janse Knickerbacker 
for his Waggen and horses to Shinnectady" (Jonathan Pearson's 
History of the Schenectady Patent, p. 283). 

On 16 March, 1706-7, the brothers, Daniel and David Ketel- 
huyn "of the city of Albany," bought of Harme Janse Knicker- 
backer, "late of the county of Albany," for one hundred and 
eighty-four pounds and ten shillings, " each one equall half of all 
that certain tract or parcel of land ... or* the west side of 
Hudson's river above the land commonly called the Half Moon, 
being about four English miles above the farm or boundary of 
Gerrit Hendrickse, which said land begins at the kill or creek 
that runs into Hudson's river between the Wijhe Vlackje and the 
said Harme Janse's house, and from thence along the river, on 
the west side of Hudson's river, and strikes from the river west- 
ward into the woods on the south and along the north side of the 
said kill or creek so as the same runs until you come to the high 
hills, which said hills run along the fly of the Half Moon and 
stretch as far as Sarachtogue; and on the north side from the 
northern end of the said Stonje Island with a direct west line 
into the woods till you come to the said high hills aforesaid." 
On 20 March that year, Daniel Ketelhuyn sold his share in this 
tract to his brother David, for one hundred and one pounds and 
five shillings (Deeds, book F, No. 6, pp. 3, 41, in the office of the 
Clerk of Albany County). 

In 171 1 Harmen Knickerbocker deeded lands in the south part 
of Amenia, N. Y., to Cornelius Knickerbocker (Isaac Huntting's 
Little Nine Partners, p. 366). 

The will of Harmen Jansen Knickerbacker "of Dutchess 
County, in Province of New York," was made 17 Jan., 1707-8, and 
recorded in Albany County Wills, Lib. i, p. 175. In it he men- 
tions wife Elizabeth and " my seven children," namely, Johannes, 
Lourens, Cornelis, Evert, Peter, Jannetje Lansing, widow of 
Hendrick Lansing, junior, and Cornelia Knickerbacker; "eldest 
son Johannes." The will is written in Dutch and mentions real 
and personal estate. Executors: wife and sons Johannes and 
Lourens. Witnesses: Jan Ploeg and Pieter Pile. 

In 1723 the widow of Harmon Knickerbacker residing in 
Dutchess County was taxed five pounds and five pence (Smith's 
History of Rhinebeck, N. K, p. 45). 

I. Harmen Jansen' Knickerbocker, m. about 1681, Lysbet 
Janse Bogaert, b. in 1659, in Holland, dau. of Jan Laurensen 
Bogaert and Cornelia Evertse. Jan Laurensen Bogaert with his 
wife and two children, seven and four years old, came from 
Schoonderwoerd, a town in South Holland, in the ship Spotted 
Cozv, 16 April, 1663, and it is probable that Lysbet was born there. 
Harmen Jansen Knickerbocker died prior to 1722, and his widow 
was living in Dutchess County in 1723. All of their children 
were born in this country, probably at Albany, where the younger 
children were baptised.

On 10 July, 1708, the Common Council of the city of Albany 
announced the conditions on which the eight plantations on the 
south side of Schaghticoke Creek would be assigned to the ap- 
plicants accepted by the corporation. Each farm, as determined 
by the municipal authorities, was to comprise twenty-five mor- 
gens, or fifty acres, of low or meadow land under the hill by the 
creek, and five morgens, or ten acres, of upland, toward the said 
hill, and all to lie connectedly together in a tract. Twenty 
persons severally desired to be assigned one. In order to avoid 
partiality in the assignment of the plantations, the clerk of the 
Common Council was ordered to prepare eight billets, severally 
bearing the number of the farm to be conveyed, and twelve blank 
ones, and place them in the mayor's hat, and let each one draw 
one, which was accordingly done. Johannes Harmense Knicker- 
backer was a successful applicant (Arthur J. Weise's Swartwoiit 
and Ketelhiiyn Chrotitcles, pp. 543, 544). 

On 22 Nov., 17 12, Johannes Barentsen Bratt exchanged twelve 
morgens of land with that of Johannes Harmense Knickerbocker, 
that particular part of his farm, on the west side of Tamhenick 
Creek, for an equal quantity of land on the east side of that 
stream (above authority, p. 553). 

12 Nov., 1709, Johannis Knickerbocker granted to Martin 
Dellemont five morgens of land at Schaghticoke (deed recorded 
I Feb., 17 17-18, Public Records of Albany County, book 5, p. 386); 
22 Nov., 17 12, he granted to Daniel Ketelhuyn twelve morgens of 
land at Schaghticoke (deed recorded i Feb., 171 7/18, above

Christianse eighteen morgens of land on Anthony Kill, Albany 
Co. (deed recorded 22 Feb., 1782, above authority, book 10, p. 311),

3. Laurens' Knickerbocker (Harmen Jansen'), m. about 1707, 
Maryke Dyckman, b. about 1688, dau. of Johannes Dyckman* 
and Jannetie Viele. A curious chain of evidence leads to the 
location of Maryke Dyckman. She appears in 1724 at Linlithgo, 
N. Y., as Maritje, in 1731 at Germantown, N. Y., as Marike, in 
1741 at Athens, N. Y., as Marytje, and in 1747 at Germantown, 
as Mariken, the full maiden name in no case being given, but on 

* Johannes Dyckman, b. 1662; m. Jannetie Viele, dau. of Cornelis Cor- 
nelisen Viele and Suster, his wife, of Schenectady, the latter supposed to have 
been a Mohawk Indian woman. On 10 April, 1676, his mother bound him out 
to Major Abram Staats (Notary Papers, vol. I, p. 556). He was son of 
Johannes Dyckman and Maria Bosyns. Johannes Dyckman had been "first 
clerk" to the West India Company, he came out in 165 1 and served as clerk 
and commissary at Fort Orange of Albany, but in 1655 was laid aside by 
insanity (Riker's History of Harle7?t, p. 545). He d. in Sept., 1672, and his wife, 
Maria Bosyns, in 1676. They had two children, Cornelis, b. 1647, who m. Jan- 
netie, dau. of Dirck Claessen Pottbacker and Wyntie Roeloffs, and became the 
ancestor of the Bloomingdale branch of the family, and Johannes, b. 1662. 
Johannes was son of Joris Dyckman and Aeltie Poulus Root of Amsterdam, 
Holland.

5 Oct., 1766, Domine Fryemont received into the membership of 
the Dutch Reformed Church at Red Hook, N. Y., from the 
church on the Flatts " Louwrenz Knickerbocker and wife Maryke 
Dyk." Extensive research shows only one other occurence of 
the name of Dyk, namely when Jacob the five months old son of 
"Hannes and Engel Dyk" was baptised 19 April, 1738 at Athens. 
Hannes and Engel previously had children baptised at Linlithgo, 
but he is there called "Johannes Dyckman, Jr." Therefore it is 
evident that Dyk is equivalent to Dyckman. On the 24 Feb., 
1723, Johannes Dyckman and Jannetje Dyckman, "echtelieden," 
or married people, became church members at Linlithgo. Johan- 
nes Dyckman m. Jannetje, dau. of Cornelis Cornelisen Viele of 
Schenectady, N. Y., and from her received land at the All Platts 
on which they lived but two years when the French and Indian 
massacre of 1690 happened. Cornelis Cornelisen Viele suffered 
great loss, for among the killed were his dau. Mary, the wife of 
Dowe Aukes, with her two children, and Mary Alo'ff, the wife of 
his son Cornelis; Arnout Viele, his grandson, was carried off 
alive to be held a captive for three years, but his dau. Jannetje 
with her husband and child escaped to Albany, later going to 
Dutchess County, but in 17 15 removing to the Manor of Living- 
ston. Johannes and Jannetje Dyckman had a son Johannes, bap. 

II May, 1690, at Albany, who m. Engel , and left descendants 

who settled at or near Linlithgo, N. Y., and a dau. named after 
her father's mother, undoubtedly born on the All Platts prior to 
the massacre and destined to become the wife of Laurens 
Knickerbocker, singularly her full maiden name only appearing 
once and then under the the form of Maryke Dyk. 

In 1 7 15 Lawrence Knickerbocker was a member of a military 
company organized and under review at Oak Hill {Claverack, 
N. v.. Centennial, p. 45). An oath of abjuration and fealty was 
required to be taken by office holder in Dutchess County in 1729. 
Lowerens Knickerbacker, captain, was one of the signers (Ed- 
mund V\2it\.'s History of Poughkeepsie, N. V., p. 24). In 1723 he 
was taxed eighteen pounds and eighteen shillings (Smith's 
History of Rhinebeck, N. V., p. 45)- He was a justice in 1735 
(Piatt's History of Poughkeepsie, N. K, p. 25). In 1750 he lived 
on Magdalen Island, an island in the Hudson River between the 
upper and lower Red Hook landings. The will of Elbert Har- 
mensen Lieverse of New York City, lime burner, dated 15 June, 
1750, proved 11 Oct., 1752, and recorded in Abstracts of Wills at 
New York City, vol. 18, p. 196, mentions his "wife's niece 
Catharine, the daughter of Lourens Knickebacker of Magdalen 
Island." The relationship is explained by the fact that Elbert 
Harmensen Liverse's wife Catharina Bogaert, and Lourens 
Knickerbocker's mother, Lysbeth Bogaert, were daus. of Jan 
Laurensen Bogaert and Cornelia Evertse. Catharina Liverse 
stood as one of the sponsors when her niece Catherine was bap. 
19 Oct., 1 73 1, at Germantown. In 1766 John Vosburgh and Cor- 
nelia, his wife, Lawrence Knickerbocker and Hans Jury Loundert,

Hoffman of Rhinebeck, of the other part, agree to divide a 
certain tract of land lying- adjacent to the south of the manor 
of Livingston, apparently belonging to them in common (Smith's

prior to 1722 Johanna Schut, probably dau. of Myndert Schut* 

and Sara Persen, bap. 7 March, 1697, at Kingston, N. Y. 

In 17 1 1 Harmen Knickerbocker deeded land in the south part 
of Amenia, N, Y., to Cornelius Knickerbocker, who in 1743 was 
living in Salisbury, Conn., on a farm which in 1748 he exchanged 
with Capt. John Sprague for land on Gay street north of Sharon 
near a pond called Knickerbocker's Pond, now Beardslee Pond 
(Isaac Huntting's Little Nine Partners, p. 366). 

A tax assessment in Dutchess County in 1723 shows that Cor- 
nelius Knickerbacker was taxed eleven pounds and eleven pence 
(Smith's History of Rhinebeck, N. V., p. 46). 

On 14 May, 1743, Cornelius Knickerbocker was one of the 
interpreters between the Indians Cabrickset and Tasawight, who 
were called to locate landmarks in the outline survey of Little 
Nine Partners made by Charles Clinton. In November Clinton 
and his men prepared to correct his Livingston "random line." 
They left the south bend of the Roelof Jansen for Nackawawick, 
the east end of the Livingston line, and spent the night at Cor- 
nelius Knickerbocker's who lived in that neighborhood. Again 
Knickerbocker was of service by helping show the Indian bounds 
of Nackawawick (Huntting's Litt/e Nine Partners, p. 28).

liam belongs to this family, but the birth of his two

nah, are suggestive of such a connection.

17 Oct., 1724, Jan and Cornelia Vosburgh became members of the 
church at Linlithgo, N. Y.; on 7 Sept., 1753, they joined the Dutch 
Reformed Church of the Flatts, near Nether Rhinebeck, N. Y., 
and on 5 Oct., 1766, were received into the membership of the 
Dutch Reformed Church at Red Hook, N. Y. In 1732 Jan Vos- 
burgh was a supervisor in Kipsbergen, Dutchess County (Smith's 
History of Rhinebeck, N. F., p. 47). In 1755 Jo^ii Vosburgh of 
the Precinct of Rhinebeck owned three slaves (above authority,

Dorothea Knikkebakker, his wife," stand as sponsors 
for Dirck, son of Andreas Gardener and Barbel 
Schmit, bap. 25 Dec, 1774, at Germantown. Ten 
Broek several times represented the manor of Liv- 
ingston in the Provincial Assembly. The Assembly 
of New York, under the Constitution, was composed 
of twenty-four members. They met at Kingston, 9 
Sept., 1777, and the following month were dispersed

CORRECTION. 



The family of Richard and Mary (Rowley) Cook of East Hampton, Conn., 
and Plainfield, N. Y., is incorrectly given on p. 206, Vol. XXXVH, of the 
Record. A lineal descendant of this pair has furnished revised data as 
follows: 

Richard^ Cooke (Josiah,^ Joshua,^ Josiah,'' Josias' ), the youngest child of 
Josiah* and Hannah (Sparrow) Cooke, was b. at Middletown (now Chatham), 
Conn., May 17, 1753 (Hinman's Early Conn. Settlers, p. 701), though the in- 
scription on his gravestone at Plainfield, N. Y., reads: "died Aug. 13, 1833, 
aged 82 years." He was a Revolutionary soldier, serving from May 19, 1778, 
to Jan. I, 1782, in the companv of Capt. Edwards Eells of Middletown, and 
was a pensioner in 1818 {Coftnecticut Men in the Revolution, pp. 172, 317, 
641). His will, dated at Plamfield, Aug. 12, 1833, probated Oct. 8, 1833, men- 
tions wife Susannah, eldest son Alvan, and youngest son Nathaniel, and no 
other children. One son d. before the father, and the dau. Lucy Alvord is not 
mentioned. Children: i. Lucy, b. Aug. 7, 1784; m. Oct. il, 1804, Dea. James 
Hall Alvord; she d. at Winsted, Conn., Sept. li, 1850. ii. Alvan, b. Dec. 15, 
1786; m. Aug. 31, 181 1, Lucretia Smith, b. Nov. 10, 1786; they lived in Plain- 
field, N. Y., and Johnstown, Wis., where he d. Jan. 27, 1856. iii. Florus, b.

NOTES. 

Snow.— Judd's History of Hadley, Mass., p. 140, states: "Josiah (Snow), 

son of Josiah,' So. Hadley, m. (i) Dec. 8, 1757, Azubah Dickenson, m. (2) . 

Children by second wife." 

James Henry of South Hadley, in will made March 6, 1767, mentions 
daughter, Elizabeth Snow, Hampshire Co. Prob. Rec. (at Northampton) Vol. 
XI, p. 14, and in a deed made by Josiah Snow of South Hadley, in Oct., 1765, 
he calls James Henry, his father, Hampshire Co. Deeds, Vol, VI, p. 506 (at 
Springfield). 

Josiah Snow's first child was b. June 18, 1762, so it would seem that his 
second wife, mother of his children, was Elisabeth Henry, daughter of James 
(See Hist. Hadley, p. 68). louise tracy. 

Van Hook, Smit and Crosman Families. Lawrence Van Hook. — 
In Vol. X, p. 47, of the Record, it is erroneously stated that Lawrence Van 
Hook was "a Judge in New York." Research concerning this Lawrence 
Van Hook discloses that he probably died prior to 28 July, 1724, at Freehold, 
N. J., leaving a will dated 14 July, 1724, which was proved 14 Aug., 1724, at 
Perth Amboy, N. J. He m. (i) on 2 July, 1692, Johanna Hendricx of New York, 
who d. in 1693-4, leaving one child, Johanna, bap. 11 June, 1693; d. 1724, at 
Freehold, N. J, He then m. (2) probably about the latter part of 1694, 
Johanna Smit, dau. of Hendrik Barentse Smit of Boswyck, Long Island, by 
whom he had issue: Gerritje, bap. 29 Sept., 1695; d. in infancy; Gerritje, 
bap. 25 Dec, 1696; Arent, bap. 9 Oct., 1698; Hendrik, bap. 19 Feb., 1701; Isaac, 
bap. 22 Aug., 1703; Gerrittie, bap. i Oct., 1704; Benjamin, bap. 26 Jan., 1707; 
Maria, bap. 9 April, 1710; Francesca, bap. 31 Oct., 1714. All his children 
except Francesca were bap. in New York, but she was bap. in the Old Marl- 
borough Church, near Freehold, Monmouth County, New Jersey. 

Laurence Van Hook resided in the Province of New York as early as 
1661, and at Boswyck about 1687, but returned to New York City prior to 
Sept., 1699, where he frequently held public office, viz.: as Constable, 29 Sept., 
1689; High Constable, 29 Sept., 1700; Assessor for the Dock Ward, 29 Sept,, 
1705, reappointed 1706. He removed to Freehold, N. J., in the early spring of 
1712, where he is described in various deeds recorded in the County Clerk's 
Office as a "bolter," as "of the City of New York, merchant," and as "of the 
County of Monmouth." He was a large land owner in the vicinity of Freehold, 
New Jersey, and also owned some land in Westchester County, New York. 
He served as "an Assistant Justice" of the Court of Quarter Sessions of 
Monmouth County, New Jersey, from 1714-1721. 

Robert Crosman.— In Vol. XXII, p. 77, of the Record, John Crosman 
is given as the first ancestor of "The Crosman Family in America." This is 
an error as Mr. Baylies in his History of New Plymotcth, Part 2, p. 286, mistook 
the name "John Greenman " for "John Grossman" in the list of the original 
purchasers of Taunton, Mass. 

The original immigrant was Robert Crosman from Somertshire England, 
who settled in Dedham, Mass., where he became a freeman in 1642. Hem. 
there 25 May, 1652, Sarah Kingsbury, dau. of Joseph and Millicent Kingsbury, 
and had issue, his first child, Sarah, b. 1653, at Dedham. He removed to 
Taunton, Mass., in 1653, where he had eleven other children, descendants of 
whom still live in Taunton. 

Hendrik Barentse Smit.— Hendrik Barentse Smit, m. Geertje Wil- 
lemse, and his name apparently first appears on the records in the year 1655. 
The inventory of his estate is dated 6 Nov., 1690, and amounts to ^16,407- 
i05-od. His will appears in Book I, p. 236, Kings County Registry.

QUERIES. 

Abbott. — I would be glad to learn anything relating to James Abbott who 
came to Long Island about i69o( ?), from Somersetshire, England. He is said to 
have married on Long Island and had five sons and two daughters. One of 
his sons, Benjamin, being the father of Rev. Benjamin Abbott (1732-1796), the 
noted M. E. minister of New Jersey. Date of birth and death, names of wife 
and daughters, and residence particularly desired. 

A. s. ABBOTi , Bethel, Ohio. 

Kelsev. — Wanted the parentage and ancestry of William Kelsey. I am 
told that in the year 1632 William Kelsey was a member of Rev. Thomas 
Hooker's congregation, in Braintree, Essex County, England. Mr. Hooker's 
flock was at that time in great trouble, their shepherd had fled to Hol- 
land to escape fines and imprisonment for non-conformity, and to enjoy the 
privilege of such a pastor they were willing to migrate to any quarter of the 
world. They turned their eyes to New England, hoping that if they could 
make a comfortable settlement there they might induce him to follow them. 
Accordingly they came to America in 1633 and "began to sit down" at 
WoUaston, a few miles south of Boston. But it was the policy of the colony to 
keep the population as much concentrated as possible, and by order of the 
Court they moved to Cambridge — then Newtowne — where they were known as 
the Braintree Company. martense harcourt Cornell,

progenitors of Col. Henry Ludington. The last chapter contains brief notices 
of some later generations. The body of the work, therefore, is devoted to a 
study of the life and character of this worthy and efficient militia officer, and 
a large number of letters and other documents are given in full, thoroughly 
illustrating Col. Ludington's career. There are numerous excellent portraits 
and facsimiles, and an index. The compilation shows great care and research, 
and the make-up is in the usual satisfymg manner of the DeVinne Press. 

The Barnes Family Year Book. An annual publication issued under 
the authority of the Barnes Family Association. Compiled by Trescott C. 
Barnes, Secretary and Genealogist. Vol. I, 1907. New York. The Grafton 
Press. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. 64. 

This is a sensible year book, composed entirely of Barnes genealogies, 
and with a good index. It contains accounts of some immigrant Barnes, and' 
descendants of Thomas Barnes of Hartford, and Thomas Barnes of 'New 
Haven, of the Barnes P^amily of Long Island, and of Joshua of East Hampton. 
A novel idea is exploited in the Record of Ancestry, in which, as the basis for 
a Barnes Genealogy, the pedigrees of members of the Barnes Family Asso- 
ciation are given. There are also obituaries and a department of Information 
Wanted. This practical form of family association report is worthy of imi- 
tation.

Secretary, Henry B. Munn and Alfred Martien, Philadelphia. Printed for 
the class by Patterson & White Co. 1907. 12D, cloth, pp. 94. 

Clad in its University colors, this little volume is a tribute to the glories of 
their Alma Mater, Old Nassau, and contains biographies and portraits of the 
faculty and class of that far-away year. Of especial interest to this Society, is 
the account of Mr. Seth Hastings Grant, a former officer of the Society, and 
author of its name. 

Ancestry of Col. John Harvey of Northwood, New Hampshire. 
By John Harvey Treat, A.M. Boston. Privately printed. 1907. Svo, cloth 
pp. 47- 

This volume is a good example of a favorite present-day form of genea- 
logical printing, namely, to set forth the ancestors and descendants of some 
favorite or especially distinguished individual. Col. John Harvey was an 
original member of the New Hampshire Society of the Cincinnati, although at 
the time of signing its rolls he was a Lieutenant. He is represented in this 
Society by the compiler of this genealogy. The book is well printed and 
indexed. 

FiTz Randolph Traditions. A Story of a Thousand Years. L. V. F. 
Randolph. Published under the auspices of the New Jersey Historical 
Society. 1907. 12D, cloth, pp. 134 and a chart. 

In this interesting little brochure nothing more is attempted than, as is 
stated in the sub-title, to tell the story of the family for a thousand years. The 
author is convinced that the descent of Edward Fitz Randolph of Scituate, 
Mass., and Piscataway, N. J., is proven from Rolf the Norseman, and his 
argument for this conclusion is very interesting. The work is attractively 
bound and illustrated, having a number of Eiiglish views. It has always 
seemed a pity that this family has, to such an extent, dropped the distinctive 
part of the surname, but this little work may inspire some of them to replace it.

yo Book Notices. " [Jan., 

Written in a straightforward and pleasing style, this work will be found of 
great interest to genealogists as well as students of social life and customs. 
Several chapters are devoted to the English origin of the higher planting 
class, and authorities are liberally cited. The great events of life, and its 
diversions, are treated of in separate chapters, and the book is a valuable 
addition to Virginiana. 

Mattapoisett and Old Rochester, Massachusetts. Being a history 
of these towns and also in part of Marion and a portion of Wareham. Prepared 
under the direction of a committee of the town of Mattapoisett. New York. 
The Grafton Press. 1907. 12D, cloth, pp. xii4-424- 

Thr various chapters in this history are by different hands, most of them, 
however, having been contributed by Miss Mary Hall Leonard and Mr. Lemuel 
LeBaron Dexter. There are about 150 pages of extracts from the Records, 
showing old Rochester soldiers and sailors, baptisms, marriages and lists of 
members of the Second Church, and other items. There are a number of good 
illustrations, and the index is well done. The work of this committee was in 
connection with the fiftieth anniversary of the setting off of Mattapoisett from 
Rochester, and the result of their labors is a very worthy volume. 

The Sacketts of America, Their Ancestors and Descendants, 
1630-1907. By Charles H. Weygant. Newburgh, N. Y. Journal Print. 1907. 
Quarto, cloth, pp. 553. 

Simon Sackett of Newtown (Cambridge), Mass., who came with a wife and 
one son in the Lyon in 1630, and John Sackett of New Haven, his brother, 
passenger in the same ship, with one son, are the progenitors of the large and 
highly respectable family whose records are herein set forth. The compiler 
has been generous and wise enough to include daughter's descendants, and 
many prominent people are to be found among them. Hon. Hamilton Fish, 
John Alsop, the Lawrences, the Kings, and many other well-known names 
appear among the daughters' descendants. In the male line will be found 
many military and civil records of importance. In some cases, the ancestors 
of allied families are given. The type is good, and good judgment has been 
used in the printing. There is an excellent index. This work has been long 
awaited, and is a very useful addition to genealogical records. 

Willis Records; or Records of the Willis Family of Haverhill, 
Portland and Boston. By Pauline Willis. London. Printed by St. Vin-

Part I is concerned with the Willis family. Part II deals with the allied 
families of Gammell, Ball, McKinstry, Leonard, Kinsman, May, Sewall and 
Phillips. A third part contains family letters, but these and the illustrations 
are only included in volumes sent to members of the family. 

The History of Ulster County, New York. Edited by Alphonso T. 
Clearwater, LL.D, Kingston. W. J. Van Deusen. 1907. 8vo, leather, pp. 
7i2-|-xii. 

A new history of Ulster"County, especially one edited by Judge Clearwater, 
is sure to attract attention. Perhaps the most important additions which this 
work makes to our knowledge of the county, are the carefully edited and 
corrected military records. About one hundred and fifty pages at the end of 
the book are devoted to biographical notices, and there is a partial index. 
The illustrations are remarkably good, and the book is of a more practical 
size than most county histories, and is attractively and substantially bound.

These Carpenters are descendants of Heinrich Zimmerman, anglicized 
Henry Carpenter, who came from Switzerland and settled in Pennsylvania. 
The major part of the book contains, in interesting narrative form, the family 
history, and the autobiography of Dr. Seymour D. Carpenter, and these are 
followed by the genealogy in brief, in an appendix. Letters, biographies, and 
other miscellaneous matter follow, and there is a good index. Dr. Carpenter 
was born in 1826, and spent his early life near Lancaster, Ohio. His recol- 
lections of pioneer life, and the War of the Rebellion, in which he served as a 
surgeon, being mustered out in 1865 with the rank of Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel, 
are full of interest.

State, continue their work with the papers of Governor Law, who succeeded 
Talcott. Law was Governor at the time of the Louisbourg expedition in 1745, 
and during the trying times which succeeded it, and proved himself able and 
efficient under difficult conditions. This volume contains, amongst other 
valuable records, several lists of colonial soldiers. 

Vital Record of Rhode Island. Vol. XVL James N. Arnold. 
Providence. Narragansett Historical Publishing Company. 1907. Quarto, 
cloth, pp. lxiv+6oi. 

Like the previous volumes of this series, the present one will be found of 
the greatest assistance to genealogists. It contains marriages from The United 
States, Chronicle and The Providence Semi-Weekly Journal, and both mar- 
riages and deaths from The American Journal, The Impartial Observer and 
The Providence Journal. These notices relate to persons all over the United 
States, and should not be overlooked by those making any genealogical 
research. / 

Williamsburg, The Old Colonial Capital. Lyon Gardiner Tyler, 
LL.D., President of William and Mary College. Richmond. Whittet & 
Shepperson. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. 285. 

This very interesting work, compiled by an authority of President Tyler's 
standing, is most acceptable to the students of early conditions in Virginia. 
Nearly one hundred pages of this book are filled with the history of William 
and Mary College, whose beginnings are found very nearly three hundred 
years ago, although the charter was not signed until February 8, 1693. But 
aside from the college, much of interest must always surround the old capital 
of Virginia. It was one of the earliest English settlements on this continent; 
in the house of burgesses here it was that Patrick Henry offered his famous 
set of resolutions upon the Stamp Act; it was here that Bruton Parish was 
established in 1674, and it was to the old parish church that a Bible has just 
been given by King Edward VII, and a lectern by President Roosevelt. The 
book is illustrated with good taste and judgment, many old views and fac- 
similes being shown, and there is a good index. Its general appearance is 
excellent. 



J 2 Book Notices. [Jan., 

Monograph on the Southgate Family of Scarborough, Maine. 
Their Ancestors and Descendants. Leonard B. Chapman. Portland, 
Me. Hubbard W. Bryant. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. viii+60. 

These records are the outcome of a series of articles entitled Grandpas 
Scrap Book, which appeared in the Deerhig News in igoo. Besides the 
Southgate data, considerable material on the Bowne, Boyd, Browne, Lawrence, 
Merrill and Smith families is presented here. Portraits of Bishop Southgate 
and Dr. Southgate are included, with a view of " Dunston Abbey." Some 
additional genealogical matter will be found in the Preface, and the index is 
well made and practical. 

J^ Genealogy of Lamb, Rose and Others. Daniel Smith Lamb, A.M., 
M. D, Washington. Beresford, Printer. 1904. 8vo, stiff paper, pp. 100. 

These are the ancestors of the compiler. The introduction gives a brief 
historical review of the early settlements in which the ancestors dwelt, 
followed by a list of counties in New Jersey and their principal towns in 1765. 
The principal families treated of, are: Bates, Clement, Colliers, Cranmer, 
Devinney, Hancock, Howard, Lamb, Matlack, Owen, Pennell, Rose, Stout and 
Van Princess. There are indices of names and places. 

The Graves We Decorate. Storer Post, No. i, Department of New 
Hampshire, Grand Army of the Republic, Portsmouth, N. H. Prepared for 
Memorial Day, 1907, by Joseph Foster, member Storer Post. With an Appen- 
dix containing the list of graves and additional records prepared in 1893. 
Portsmouth. John D. Randall, Printer. 1907. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 20+ 'jd. 

This is a careful compilation by Mr. Foster, formerly a Pay Director in the 
Navy, now retired, who has for a number of years contributed genealogical 
material to the common knowledge. His work will be found of the greatest 
practical use. The names of the dead soldiers and sailors are given alpha- 
betically under the names of their burial places, with service, rank or ship, 
death, age and part of the cemetery in which they lie. This work of Storer 
Post is worthy of emulation. 

A Catalogue of Autographs, Books, Manuscripts, Medals, Pedi- 
grees, Portraits, Tracts and other Matters Connected with the 
Several Families of the Name of Baker, now in the possession of 
Charles Edward Baker, Sherwhod, Nottingham, England. Nottingham. R. 
H. Judd, Printer. 1907. 12D, pamphlet, pp. 32. 

This comprehensive title fully explains the little work. The lists of 
manuscripts ought to be of service to Baker genealogists, and the scheme of 
collection seems a most commendable one. 

A Brief History of Chemung County, New York, for the Use of 
Graded Schools. Ausburn Towner. New York. A. S. Barnes & Company. 
igo7" 12D, cloth, pp. ii+103. 

While this history is written in a simple style for the purposes set forth> 
its footnotes will be found of value from a genealogical standpoint. A re- 
capitulation of important events by years will be found in the back of the book. 

Nicholas Mundy and Descendants who Settled in New Jersey in 
1665. Compiled by Rev. Ezra F. Mundy of Metuchen, N. J. Lawrence, 
Kansas. Bullock Printing Company. 1907. 8vo, cloth, pp. 160. 

This work contains chiefly the record of Samuel, one of the sons of 
Nicholas Mundy. The compiler encountered the usual difficulty met with by 
those attempting New Jersey genealogy, but has succeeded in placing before 
us considerable material on the family, which is now largely scattered through- 
out the West. 

The Ancestry of William Francis Joseph Boardman, Hartford, 
Connecticut. Being his lineage in all lines of descent from the emigrant 
ancestors in New England. William F. J. Boardman, Hartford. Privately 
printed, 1906. Quarto, cloth, pp. 419. 



igoS.] Accessions to the Library. 73 

In this handsome ancestral memorial Mr. Boardman has apparently 
reached the apogee of his genealogical labors. Instead of dealing with each 
family name in a separate article, Mr. Boardman has arranged the work by 
generations, beginning with himself as generation number one. A second 
division of the book shows lines of descent from emigrant ancestors, and a 
third section contains charts. There are many excellent illustrations and a 
copious index. 

In Olde New York. Sketches of old times and places in both the State 
and the city. Charles Burr Todd, New York. The Grafton Press. 1907. 
12D, cloth, pp. 253. 

A large portion of this volume was written twenty years ago and appeared in 
the Evening Post and Lippincotf s Magazine, and is repeated with very little 
change because it describes types and conditions now passed away. This 
has its advantage, because the limited space allotted to this series, many things 
which were considered important twenty years ago would be slurred over in 
articles brought up to date. The author has a certain picturesqueness of style, 
and his accounts of persons and things are most realistic. Like Mattapoisett 
and Old Rochester, this is one of the Grafton Historical Series, edited by Henry 
R. Stiles, A.M., M.D. 

Wadhams Family. A Genealogy of the Wadhams Family is being 
compiled by Harriet Wadhams Stevens (Mrs. George T.), 22 E. 46th Street, 
New York City. She would be glad to correspond with those interested.

Vol. XXXIX. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1908. No. 2. 



SAMUEL WARD KING. 



By George Austin Morrison, Jr., A.M., LL.B. 



Samuel Ward King, the thirteenth Governor of the State of 
Rhode Island, was born on 23 May, 1786, at Johnston, Provi- 
dence County, Rhode Island, and was the fifth child and third 
son of William Borden King and his wife Welthian Walton. 
He was a lineal descendant of Clement King, who appeared at 
Marshfield, Mass., in 1668 and removed to the Providence Plan- 
tations about 1687, where he died about 1690, leaving an eldest 
son John King, who had issue, a son Josiah King, who in due 
course had issue, a son William Borden King, the father of the 
future Governor. It is now clearly established that Clement 
Kinge, the first settler, was a son of Clement l^inge and Mary 
Raynor of St. Giles, Cripplegate, London, England, and a grand- 
son of that Ralphe Kinge of Watford, Hertfordshire, England, 
who, in his will, dated i Aug., 1653, and proved 21 Nov., 1656 (P. 
C. C. Berkley 419), wrote in his own hand "and whereas my 
Sonne Clement intended to make a will in writinge but the 
violence of his disease being so great he desired me not to have 
it perfected but said he would leave all to his wife's disposinge." 
Daniel Kinge, Gent, of Lynn, Mass., 1644, also mentioned in the 
will of his father, Ralphe Kinge, was an uncle of Clement Kinge 
of Marshfield. Through his mother, Mr. King was related to the 
Walton, Greene and Coggeshall Families, members of which 
held important and influential positions among the early Colonial 
settlers. Mr. King received his early education at the district 
school and for a short period was a student at Brown University, 
Providence. 

He desired, however, to become a physician and as there was 
no medical schools in those days, he became the pupil and 
assistant of his relative, Dr. Peter Ballou, a learned and well 
established physician of Smithfield, R. I. After serving faithfully 
for some years, Mr. King received his certificate to practice 
medicine, dated 5 Aug., 1807, and signed by Peter Ballou, the 
original of which is still in the possession of his descendants. 

Dr. King then started upon his career as a country doctor, 
but not finding that profession as lucrative as he expected, he

him as their rightful Governor and informed him that the mass 
of the people were prepared to fight for their rights under his 
leadership. Mr. Dorr thereupon promptly i&sued a proclamation, 
signed as Governor, convening a (leneral Assembly at Chepachet 

G'>vernor King in turn had l>een active, calling ujxjn the law- 
citizens for aid and again appealing to the Federal 
' .ncnt, stating that he feared " insur;,cnts from abroad" 

were being called into the State by Dorr and his triends. Finally 
on 2$ June. 1842, martial law was prtxrlaimed and serious steps 
taken to put down the so-called rebellion. 

On 28 June. 1842, a sma'.l j^jathering of about too men with 
arms and 5 cannon met at Chepachet and made a militar>' 
demonstration in favor of Mr. Dorr, seizing and fortifying 
"Acolc's Hill," but ujkju the ai)pearance of the State troops and 
other citizens to the aggregate number of 3,000 or more, the Dt)rr 
forces retreated from the field, and Mr. Dorr realizing that his 
cause was lost, ordered his forces to disi)erse and fled to Con- 
necticut and subsequently to New Hampshire, a reward of $5,000 
being offered by the Rhode Island State authorities for his cap- 
ture. Gov. King applied to both Governors of Connecticut and 
New Hampshire for the surrender of Mr. Dorr, but both declined 
to take any action against the so-called "traitor," their sympathies 
being doubtless with the democratic rule. (Juiet was entirely 
restored in a few days, and while a numl>cr of arrests had been 
made and a small number of {>ersons imprisoned for a short 
period, the court proceedings were soon quashed and the incident 
closed. 

Thus terminated the so-called "Dorr Rebellion" without 
serious injur)* to j)crson8 or proj)erty, the only blood shed being 
the death of one Alexander Kelby, an innocent by-stander who 
was wounded when the troops fired a volley at Pawtucket village 
on 37 June, 1S42, and who subsequently died of his injuries. 

The Legislature in June, 184a, now fully alive to the necessity 
for concession and change in the suffrage, issued a call for a new 
Constitutional Convention, which met at Providence in Sept.,

act unconstitutional. Mr. Dorr died 27 Dec, 1854, and one of his 
biographers states " he was a man of strict honor and integrity 
and high character and to good abilities joined an untiring- 
patience and an indomitable will." 

The publications and newspaper articles for and against the 
Dorrites are voluminous, but viewed with the clear and calm 
judgment which reflection and years ever bring to concensus of 
public opinion, is that although the principles advocated for 
more liberal suffrage were sound, nevertheless the method 
attempted in carrying out such reform was unconstitutional and 
dangerous to the underlying principles of State government. 

The attitude and action of Governor King during the entire 
episode was marked by constant watchfulness for the general 
public welfare, firmness in upholding the lawful authority of the 
State and conciliation toward the opposing party. His use of the 
military forces was temperate and able, and his tactful treatment 
of those of the " Suffragists " who were arrested, went far 
toward quieting party feeling and uniting the citizens into a 
law-abiding body. 

Governor King was personally inclined toward a liberal 
interpretation of the charter and an extension of the voting 
power and it was due to his efforts in that direction that the new 
constitution was finally adopted. At the same time his sense of 
justice and right forbade any resort to violence for the purpose 
of forcing the illegally framed Dorr Constitution upon the State 
and he opposed this effort of the discontented element with all 
the resources at his command. 

He was in his family and social life a man of peculiar charm 
of manner, a good conversationalist and possessed a well in- 
formed and retentive mind. His views upon questions of the 
day were liberal and founded upon well digested investigation, 
but he was tenacious of his opinion and direct in all statements 
of personal and political policies. Perhaps one of his most 
admirable qualities was a whole-hearted generosity and con- 
fidence in his fellow men, and it is said that he more than once 
returned to his country home without his coat, having given 
that garment to some unfortunate met on the road side. 

Governor King was m. on 20 May, 1813, by Elder Elisha 
Sprague at Johnston, to Catherine Latham Angell, only child of 
Olney and Mary (Waterman) Angell, b. 6 July, 1795; d. 4 May, 
1841. She was a lineal descendant on her motlaer's side of 
Frances, dau. of Lewis Latham, Falconer to King Charles L 

The children of Samuel Ward King and Catherine Latham 
Angell were as follows: 

i. Mary Waterman, b. i Dec, 1814; d. 26 March, 1815. 

ii. Mary Anna, b. i March, 181 6. 
iii. Eliza Smith, b. 23 Jan., 1818. 
iv. James Laurence, b. 24 March, 1820.

held at Newport on 5 May, which was adjourned to meet at 
Providence on 5 July, 1841, where a call was directed for a State 
constitutional convention. An election of delegates was held on 
28 Aug., 1841, who proceeded to meet at Providence on 4 Oct., 
and frame a form of Constitution, which was submitted to the 
people at a general election held the 27, 28 and 29 Dec, 1841. 
The Dorr party claimed that at this election 13,944 citizens, 
which number was not only a majority of the adult population of 
the State, but also a majority of those entitled to suffrage under 
the charter, voted to accept the new People's Constitution as that 
of the State. 

There can be no question but that this constitutional conven- 
tion, the constitution then framed, and the subsequent election 
to ratify same, were illegal. 

The supporters of the government forthwith organized them- 
selves into a so-called " Law and Order " Party, which was 
derisively called the " Landholders " Party by Dorr and his 
associates, who branded all opposed to their views and claims as 
" Aristocrats." 

Realizing the serious nature of this popular movement and 
the necessity for some change in the voting qualification, the 
regular Legislature met on 6 Feb., 1841, and in turn called a 
Constitutional Convention, the duly elected delegates to which 
met in Nov. and adjourned until Feb., 1842. On this last date 
they agreed upon a form of Constitution, which was submitted to 
the people (entitled to vote under the old Royal Charter) on 21, 
22 and 23 March, 1842, and rejected. 

Meanwhile Governor King foreseeing that the rapid growth 
of the suffragist party and its revolutionary and rebellious atti- 
tude towards the established government would lead to serious 
trouble, on 4 April, 1842, sent a committee and two letters to 
President Tyler at Washington, stating "that Rhode Island was 
threatened with domestic violence," and asking for recognition 
and assistance in case of need. The President replied on 1 1 April 
stating that while he recognized the regular State Government, 
in his opinion the necessity for armed intervention by the 
Federal government had not as yet arisen, nor did it appear that 
the regular Government of Rhode Island was not able to cope 
with the situation; he therefore declined to interfere previous to 
an actual outbreak but promised if an insurrection should take 
place to come to the aid of the established government. 

On 18 April, 1842, the so-called "Suffrage Party" held an 
election under the terms of the so-called "vSuffrage " constitution, 
at which they chose Mr. Dorr, their leader, as Governor, and a 
Legislature composed entirely of his supporters. 

The People's Assembly forthwith met for organization in 
Providence on 3 May, 1842, received Governor Dorr's inaugural 
message, remained in session for two days, during which they 
passed several unimportant acts, and then adjourned to meet in 
Jan., 1843. It never met again however, as later the movement 
was suppressed. 



1908 ] Samuel Ward King. 8 1 

As soon as the rejection of the "Landholders" constitution 
was known, Governor King- convened the General Assembly in 
extra session on 25 April, 1842, and they then passed an act 
known as the "Algerine Act," making- it a misdemeanor, punish- 
able by fine and imprisonment for any person to act as Moderator 
or Clerk at any election meeting, under the People's Constitution, 
and treason for any person to accept office under it. At the 
same time Governor King warned the militia to be ready for 
service at thirty minutes' notice. 

The regular government in turn proceeded to hold the usual 
election under the charter, 20 April, 1842, and chose Samuel 
Ward King Governor for the third term. 

Each government now claimed legislative power and while 
the regular government officers proceeded to organize at New- 
port on 3 May, the People's Party issued an appeal to arms and 
marching upon the State House in Providence attempted to seize 
the government offices. The "Law and Order" Party however, 
anticipating such action, had taken possession of the State House 
and barricaded the doors, so that Dorr and his friends could not 
effect an entry. 

Matters now assumed so serious a look that many of Dorr's 
supporters hesitated to come into direct conflict with the govern- 
ing powers and began to withdraw from his support and desert 
the party. 

Governor King thoroughly alarmed at the situation once more 
despatched a committee with a letter to the President on 4 May, 
1842, to which a second non-committal reply was made by the 
Washington authorities. On 17 May, 1842, Governor King was 
informed that an attempt would be made by the Dorrites to 
seize the State Offices and he immediately issued a Proclamation 
for the troops to repair to the State Arsenal and take up arms. 

Meanwhile Mr. Dorr collected his forces, and on the evening 
of the 18 May, 1842, made an armed attempt to seize the State 
Arsenal at Providence, which was thwarted by the appearance of 
the troops, commanded by Governor King in person. 

Mr. Dorr realizing the serious character of his attempt, and 
the consequences of its failure, fled to Connecticut, whence he 
set out for Washington to seek the sanction and support of the 
Federal authorities. Governor King immediately proclaimed 
$1,000 reward for his capture and punishment, at the same time 
writing the President on 25 May, setting forth the actions of 
the "Suffrage or People's Party," and stating that Dorr was 
actively engaged in raising forces in other States against the 
Government of Rhode Island. 

The Federal Government however again declined to intervene 
in the matter on behalf of either party, and Mr. Dorr then re- 
turned to Rhode Island, stopping in New York on his way back, 
where he was cordially welcomed by the leaders of Tammany 
Hall and assured of their sympathy and support. 

When Mr. Dorr reached the village of Chepachet, a small 
hamlet ten miles from Providence, in the Town of Gloucester, he 
was met by an enthusiastic crowd of his adherents, who acclaimed

Of these fourteen children, only seven reached adult age, and 
with the death of Charles Rollin King on 12 Jan., 1903, the male 
line of Governor King's family became extinct. After ending 
his last term as Governor, Mr. King retired from active life and 
d. on 21 Jan., 185 1, at Providence, being buried in the private 
burial ground of the Kings at Johnston, R. I. A brief obituary 
of Governor King states: "The firm and conciliatory course 
pursued by Governor King did much to allay the bitterness of 
party strife and secure the satisfactory result which was at 
length reached in the settlement of the important questions 
which had agitated the public mind." ..." Few men have 
enjoyed in their day to a greater degree the confidence of the 
public, and few men in their private lives have exhibited greater 
amiability and generous kindness of heart. In the troublous 
times of 1842 his conduct won the approbation of friends and 
conciliated his opponents and in his voluntary retirement he 
carried with him the respect and esteem even of those against 
whom he acted in seasons of unusual difficulties." The portrait 
of Governor King is taken from a very old painting, now in the 
possession of his descendants in Providence — and is said to be a 
ofood likeness.

THE TWO MARTHA GOODSPEEDS. 



Contributed by Miss Louise Tracy. 



In the course of tracing the ancestry of Martha Goodspeed, 
the wife of John Crosby of Lee, Mass., back to the emigrant 
ancestor, a curious error was discovered in the statement_ set 
forth in the work entitled Notes on Barnstable Families by Otis. 

The data concerning the Crosby family stated that John 
Crosby, son of John and Mary Crosby, m. Martha Goodspeed of 
Barnstable, Mass., they having been published on 22 Aug., 1766, 
and m. on 26 Nov., 1766, by Nymphas Marston, Esq., in Barn- 
stable. John Crosby with his wife and children removed to Lee, 
Berkshire County, Mass., in 1780, and in 1781 united with the 
Congregational Church there. Martha (Goodspeed) Crosby d. in 
1 81 2 at Lee, Mass., and her tombstone in the Lee Cemetery bears 
the following inscription: 

*"In Memory of Mrs. Martha Crosby, wife of Mr. 
John Crosby, Sr., who died 25 May 1812 in the 71st. year 
of her age. 

Farewell all sublunary things 
I go to see the King of Kings." 
From the age given on her tombstone it would appear that 
this Martha Goodspeed was b. 1 741-2. 

The record of the Goodspeed family contained in Otis' Notes 
on Barnstable Families, p. 404, shows that a Martha Goodspeed, 
dau. of James and Elizabeth (Fuller) Goodspeed, was b. on 31 

* See Crosby Genealogy by C. C. McLean, pp. 3 and 4, and History of Lee, 
Mass. 



Q2 The Two Martha GoodsPeeds. [April, 

July, 1741, at Barnstable, Mass., but Otis adds "She married on 
12 June, 1760, Samuel Winslow of Hardwick." 

A genealogical problem was at once presented as to whether 
the Martha Goodspeed, wife of John Crosby, was identical with 
that Martha Goodspeed who m. Samuel Winslow, or was an 
entirely different person, and whether she was a dau. oi James 
Goodspeed or not. 

An examination of the Winslow Memorial disclosed that 
Martha Goodspeed, wife of Samuel Winslow, was b. on 7 Feb., 
1739, at Barnstable, Mass., and 'Csx^ History of Hardwick, Mass., 
and the History of Pomfret, Vt., confirmed this statement con- 
cerning the age of Martha (Goodspeed) Winslow. This birth 
date agreed with the birth date of a Martha Goodspeed, dau. of 
Ebenezer Goodspeed, given by Otis, p. 404, and thus clearly 
proved the existence of two of the name of Martha Goodspeed, 
both of Barnstable, Mass., born within a year or so of each other. 
Otis had erroneously allotted Martha, dau. oi James Goodspeed, as 
the wife of Samuel Winslow, when his wife was clearly Martha, 
dau. of Ebenezer Goodspeed. 

In order to make the proof of this error stronger, a letter was 
addressed to the town clerk of Pomfret, Vt., asking for a copy 
of the inscription on the tombstone of Martha (Goodspeed) 
Winslow. The town clerk in due course forwarded a letter which 
she had obtained from Mr. Walter E. Perkins, who had been 
making a study of Pomfret history for some years, which reads 
as follows: 

Pomfret, Vt., August 10, 1907. 
Mrs. E. p. Perkins, Town Clerk, Pomfret Vt.: 

Respecting the inquiry of Louise Tracy of New Haven, will 
say, the grave of Martha Goodspeed, wife of Samuel Winslow, is 
at the Gushing Cemetery in Woodstock. The gravestone says: 
died March 9 1813, aged 74 years. 

I have never seen the Winslow Genealogy, but here is what 
Samuel Winslow wrote: "I Samuel Winslow was born at 
Rochester april ye 6 Day old Stile A. D. 1735 ^7 wife martha 
goodspede was born at Barnstable february ye 7 Day old stile 
1739 we was marad at Barnstable June ye 12 New Stile A D 
1760" 

" My Mother Martha Winslow Departed this Life at pomfret 
on the Ninth Day March 18 13 at 9 a clock A M hur age was 
seventy four years and eighteen days old after a short But Dis- 
tressing sickness of ( — ?) Days of Lung fever She Diede with 
a Smile on Her Countenance she lived with us twelve years ten 
Munths into 3 Day 

March 9 1813 
Ebenezer Winslow her oldest Son " 

Respectfully yours, 

Walter E. Perkins. 

This letter certainly settles the question as to which Martha 
Goodspeed m. Samuel Winslow.

Mass., Jan. 14, 1735; m- Philip Gofff of Wethersfield, Conn., who 
was b. at Middletown, about 1727. She d. at Easthampton,

11. Elizabeth* Green (Warren," William,' William'), b. and 
bap. at Middle Haddam, Conn., July 5, 1742. I was informed 
she m. Jeremiah Brainerd, but I think, that was an error, from 
the fact that another Elizabeth m. a man of that name.

bap. at Middle Haddam, Conn., Oct. 23, 1743; m. Stephen Hos-

t In the sketch of (9) James^ Green, there is an error which should be 
corrected, it appears on page 8 of reprint. Speaking of Mary Drake, I should 
have said her mother was Hafittah Moore, dau. of Deacon John Moore, for she 
was not a dau. of Henry Wolcott as has been said many times.

dation was visible some years since. It was afterward occupied 
by Mrs. John Marshall (who was Elizabeth Winslow) and her 
dau. Ruth. The foundation has now fallen into the river with 
the ground about it. 

24. \ViLLi,\M* Green (James,* William,' William'), b. Aug. 26, 
1760; bap. March 14, 1773. Went into the navy, when young, 
during the war of Independence. He never returned and it was 
reported to his family that he was drowned trying to escape 
from the prison ship in Wallabought Bay, N. Y. Harbor. The 
Conn, ship-of-war, Oliver Cromzucil, was ordered Dec. 5, 1777, to 
enlist crews with all speed, under the rules of the Continental 
Congress. Timothy Parker was made captain. She was built at 
Saybrook, 1775. April 20, 1778, Parker reported prizes taken, the 
Cyrus, 16 guns, thQ Adifiiral Keppel, 18 guns. In his report he 
speaks of the merit of his officers in- action, "keeping such 
inexperienced young boys (as many of them were) to their 
quarters, without the show of fear or noise or confusion." Hence 
William then in his i8th year was not the only boy. 

In a list* of prisoners committed to Forton prison, Eng., Oct, 
i3> i777> appears the name "William Green, ship Oliver Crotn- 
weliy Another entry, same name, without vessel, later. The 
History of New London, says, "the crew were released Aug., 
1779, they had been on prison ships Jersey and Good Hope." 
Webb's statement published in the N. Y. Gen. &■ Biog. Record,\ 
says: "The Cromwell was not captured until 1781. The list of 
Prison Ship Martyrs also has his name. He may have been in 
England as a prisoner and sent back for exchange or other 
reasons. 

He had the example of his father who had gone to the war 
and his teacher, Nathan Hale, the martyr, who lived with them 
and was dead.

he moved into the Jehiel Tinker homestead, which he bought 
Sept. 23, 1803, for $1,015.00 from the heirs Henry and Almyra 
White, Temperance Tinker and Indiana Green. This place con- 
taining 80 rods, is described in the deed as at Moodus Landing, 
between Thomas Marshall, Joseph Atwood and Elijah Atwood. 
It was beautifully situated at the top of the terraces on the upper 
road, facing the river, a double colonial house, in which Richard 
Green lived until his death, and there all of his children were 
born. It was the second house south of Captain James Green's 
house where he was born. The south wing of Maplewood Semin- 
ary, now being taken down, is remembered as it stood between 
Eliphalet Bulkeleys and Aunt Piersons. Richard Green was a 
merchant and ship owner until he retired from business in 1814, 
when he furnished the capital for the new firm " R. and T. 
Green," managed by his younger brother Timothy. He was 
Tithing man, constable, surveyor of highways, selectman, and 
many times moderator of town meetings. In 1816 he was ap- 
pointed to purchase land for the town. He was captain of the 
East Haddam South Company, 25th Regiment Conn. Militia, and 
in that capacity marched his company in 18 12 on an alarm to 
New London. This was in the second war with England. 

Capt. and Mrs. Green always attended the First Church in 
East Haddam, which was then called Uptown, now Little Had-

On 22 Nov., 1752, Johannes joined the Dutch Reformed

elder and deacon. The church record states that he " died 16 Aug.

army and was appointed Colonel 20 Oct. 1775." Revolutionary 
War records show that he was Colonel of the Fourteenth Regi-

his wife " died 8 Jan. 1800 aged 81 years" and her life is expressed 
in the text " She was full of good works and alms deeds which 
she did." In Harper's Magazine^ vol. 54, p. 42, is a picture of

Side Cemetery is near the homestead. 

A census of the slaves above the age of fourteen, taken in 
1755 in the precinct of Rhinebeck, shows that Harman owned 
two slaves, one of whom was named Tom. It is interesting to 
note that Thomas, a negro man belonging to Hermanus Knicker- 
bocker, was baptised 22 July, 1781, in the Presbyterian Church at 
South Amenia, N. Y. 

Harmanis Knickerbocker of Amenia Township, made his will

who m. 19 Aug., 1683, at Flatbush, Long Island, Jan Hendricksen Oosterom, 
and had children bap. at Bergen, Flatbush and Kingston. She was dau. of 
Roelof Willemsen (Van Heerden) of Albany, New York City and Brooklyn, 
and Willemptje Tyse, who m. (2).Jan Comelisen Buys. The second branch 
consists of the following De Deutsers: — Cornelia Janse, who m. prior to i68q, 
Jan Wels; Cornelis, who m. prior to 1693, Leonora de Hooges, widow of Willem 
de la Montague; Catharina, b. at Flatbush (Kingston), who m. 11 Feb., 1700, at 
Kingston, Jan Rolan, widower of Judick Schirard; Dirick, b. at Hurley, who m. 
19 Nov., 1699, at Kingston, Jannetje Bont; Roelof, who m. 17 Nov., 1700, at 
Kingston, Jannetje Brussy; Barent of Tarrytown, N. Y., who m. (l) prior to 
1701, Maritje Conkele, and m. (2) 29 Dec, 1717, Dirckje Smit, widow of Hen- 
drick Lammersen; and David, b. in Esopus, who m. 19 Feb., 1714, at Kingston, 
Elisabeth Deffenport. It is probable that they are brothers and sisters, for we 
find them standing reciprocally as sponsors at baptisms of each others children, 
and prominent among those children the names Johannes and Margrietje. 
"John Williamson, ye Duitcher," took the oath of English allegiance in Ulster 
County, I Sept., 1689, and "Cornelis ye Duitcher" failed to appear. Jan 
Willemsen Brant and Grietje Cornelise had children bap. at Kingston: Willem, 
22 Jan., 1662, and Tys, 24 April, 1681. Further research may prove that the 
second branch of the Dutcher family are children of Jan Willemsen Brant and 
that he is a brother of Roelof Willemsen previously mentioned. 

For further particulars concerning the Dutcher family see Our Colonial 
Ancestors and Their Descendattts, by Henry Whittemore.

1787 (data from family records); son of Silas Belden and Abigail 
Robbins. The house where Silas brought his bride stood in 
what was called Dover, or more exactly the town of Washington, 
at the foot of Plymouth Hill, on the left-hand side going up from 
Dover. Their grandsons Lawrence and Silas began their married

lives in the homestead, but later Silas moved to the second house 
at the right of the foot of Plymouth Hill, on the right side of the 
road from Amenia. Lawrence remained and finally built a new 
house, moving the old one to the rear but with a space between 
them. A few months after the death of his wife, Louisa Ketcham 
Gregory, both structures were torn down. Tabor Belden (son of 
Joseph Belden and Eliphal Tabor) and his son Joseph built the 
present house on the lawn back of the old homestead further up 
the road and in the town of Amenia. 

Silas Belden, Sen., of Charlotte Precinct, Dutchess County, 
made his will 20 Feb., 17S6, proved 19 April, 17S6, and recorded 
at Albany. In it he mentions wife Janetie, sons Silas and 
Lowrens, and daus. Mary, Jane and Elizabeth, and heirs of dau. 
Abegal and Katrine. He wills personal property and land in 
Charlotte Precincts, in Salisbury, Vermont, and in Canaan 
Township, Albany County. Executors, the wife, son Lourens 
and son-in-law Christopher Dutcher (Fernow's Calendar of Wills, 
P- 47). 

Children of Silas Belden and Jane Knickerbocker: 

67 i. Silas,* b. 9 March, 1745; bap. 2 June, 1745, Rhinebeck- 

Red Hook (N. Y.) Church Records; spon.: Benjamin 
and Maltgen Knickerbocker; d. 30 Sept., 1789; m. 17 
Oct., 1765, at Oblong, N. Y., Dorcas Gillette, 
ii. Mary, b. 5 Nov., 1746; d. y. 

iii. Lorentz, bap, 25 Jan., 1747, at Germantown, N. Y.; 
spon.: Lorentz and Mariken Knickerbocker; d. y.

Benjamin and Catharina Knickerbocker; d. y.

vi. Mary, b. 23 Feb., 1751; m. her cousin Christopher 
Dutcher, bap. 3 Jan., 1748, at Germantown, son of 
Gabriel Dutcher and Elisabeth Knickerbocker. 
Either the date of her birth or that of the preceding 
Lawrence is wrong. We are inclined to think that 
the latter should be b. 18 Dec, 1748, and refers to a 
younger Lawrence.

d. 1734. Who was the said Deborah Nagel? Was she not step-sister of 
Johannes Dyckman above, and dau. of Jan and Rebecca (Waldron) Nagel? 
Riker, however, said Jan and Rebecca's dau. Deborah Nagel m. Robt. West- 
gate. (See Dutch Ch. Rec.) Could not the said Deborah have m. Westgate in 
1720, after the death of Johannes Dyckman, whose death above might have 
been 1703, instead of 1730. 

Jan' Dyckman had a grand-daughter Ann Hedley, who m. Jacob Post, 
what relation was the said Jacob to .Mary, dau. of Martin Post, who m. William 
Dyckman, and had sons William and Evert Dyckman, who went West many

BOOK NOTICES. 



The Bibliographer's Manual of American History, by Thomas 
Lindsley Bradford, M.D. Edited and revised by Stan. V. Henkels. Vol. I, 
A to E, Nos. 1-1,600, pp. 340; Vol. II, F to L, Nos. 1,601-3,103, pp. 349. Cloth, 
Royal 8vo, Press of Maurice H. Power, Philadelphia, Pa. 1907. 

This work, which will ultimately reach five volumes, contains an account 
of all State, Territory, Town and County histories relating to the United States 
with verbatim copies of their titles and useful bibliographical notes, together 
with the prices at which they have been sold for the last forty years. The 
final volume will consist of two indices arranged alphabetically, one of short 
titles of authors, under the names of the States; the other of titles of subjects, 
localities, names of towns; the references in both these indices being to the 
number of the book in the author-title. This comprehensive list fills a long felt 
want among historians, librarians and collectors, and it is reasonable to 
predict will be the standard reference book on Americana for years to come. 
The subject matter evinces the greatest care and research and a through 
digest of all catalogues, lists and copyrighted publications, while the plan and 
scope of the work reflects the highest credit on the compiler and editor. No 
library of any pretension should be without this Manual and it should prove

invaluable to those interested in historical subjects. The type, paper, com- 
position and binding leave nothing to be desired and form practical working 
volumes, which deserve extensive patronage and success. 

The Cherokee Indians, with special reference to their relations with the 
United States Government, by Thomas Valentine Parker, Ph.D. Cloth, i2mo, 
pp. 116. The Grafton Press. 1907. 

This small volume is a valuable addition to the Grafton Historical Series 
and in style, typography and binding fully up to the high standard set by these 
publishers. The treatment of the American Indian by the Federal Govern- 
ment has been the subject of so much ignorant and prejudiced criticism that 
any authoritative study of the problem will be more than welcome. The 
Cherokees being one of the "five civilized tribes," of a high order of intelli- 
gence and civilization, and largely Christians, are admirable examples of the 
application of Federal principals and policies to the Indian question. The 
wtjrk is well arranged, clearly and forcibly written, and evidences much 
research on the part of its author to establish his facts. It will be a valuable 
addition to literature already printed on this subject. 

Dunham Genealogy. English and American Branches, by Isaac 
Watson Dunham, A.M. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 363. Press of Bulletin Print, Norwich, 
Conn. 1907. Full Index. 

This work sets forth the general records of families named Dunham in 
England and the claim of specific descent of Deacon John Dunham from Sir 
John Dunham of Schrooby. The compiler as^serts that "John Dunham, the 
emigrant," was identical with that "John Goodman," whose name appears as 
one of the signers of the Mayflower pact of 11 November, 1620, and that he 
adopted the Goodman name to escape religious persecution. This assumption 
appears to be unsupported by any substantial proof and is the more improbable 
in that no other signer of the pact used an "alias " or substituted a false name. 
Much time, labor and ingenuity has been expended upon tracing the Dunham' 
descendants in America and the record appears to be complete and accurate. 
It is to be regretted that the system of indicating genealogical descent and' 
indexing is one pecular to Mr. Dunham and not the standard and accredited 
system. The book is illustrated with a cut of the Dunham Arms in colors and 
portraits of ancestors. 

Record of the Fargo Family, by John J. Giblin. Morocco, i2mo, 
pp. 32. Privately printed. Press of The American Bank Note Co. 1907. 

A brief and well arranged genealogy of the descendants of Moses Fargo, 
and his wife, Sarah, who emigrated from Wales about 1680 and settled at New 
London, Conn. The spirit which prompted a descendant to collect and place 
in permanent printed form the genealogy of this early New England family 
should be highly commended as it preserves for all time a record of a family of 
commercial importance. The press work is excellent and the pamphlet is well 
bound and contains a full index of names. 

Some Special Studies in Genealogy. I. American Emigrants- 
Row to Trace Their English Ancestry, by Gerald Fothergill. II. The

alogy of the Submerged, by Charles A. Bernau. Cloth, i2mo, pp. 96 
Press of Dunn Collin & Co., London. 1908. 

For those unskilled in the intricacies of the English Record Offices this 
little work will prove invaluable, setting forth, as it does clearly and tersely, 
the successive steps to be followed in tracing our English forbears. It is 
astonishing to learn that a complete alphabetical list of all Quaker births, 
marriages and deaths from about 1650 down to the present time can be found 
at Devonshire House, whereby any Quaker descendant can in a few moments 
find his ancestry, if recorded. The chapter on the Genealogv of the Submerged, 
viz.: paupers, vagrants, tramps, bastards and removed fam'ilies, is a revelation 
of a hitherto unexplored source of family history and in defence of such search- 
ing it may be quoted that one of the great-grandmothers of Queen Anne was 
only a poor bar-maid of a public house. This complete small book should be 
consulted by any one contemplating searching among the English records.

142 Book Notices. [April, 

Heraldry as Art, by G. W. Eve. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 308. Full index. 
Published by B. T. Batsford, 94 High Holborn. Imported by Charles Scrib- 
ner's Sons. Press of The Selwood Printing Works, Frame and London. 1907. 

This work fills a long desired want and the author is to be highly com- 
plimented upon his simple, direct and scholarly treatment of an intricate 
science. Perhaps no art has suffered more at the hands of ignorant and unskill- 
ful craftsmen than the gentle art of tracing coat-armor. In spite of numerous 
treatises on the subject, the modern use of heraldry in architecture, painting, 
cermanics, decorations and sculpture has been lamentably bad, in part owing 
to the difficulty in acquiring a sound knowledge of the subject, and in part due 
to the inherent desire of modern workmen to improve or create new forms for 
what the ancient designers had developed into an exact science. Mr. Eve has 
not only recognized the inartistic results of modern heraldic decoration, but 
has set about pointing out the plain path to a revival of correct chivalric 
picture-painting and has compiled an admirable guide for future illustrators. 
His work is a " book beautiful" in selection and finish of type and in clearness 
of illustration — some of the cuts being almost as fine as engravings, and those 
illustrations made from his own design indicate artistic conception and feeling 
of a high order. The author's style is clear and terse, the lesson taught in the 
text bemg the more easily learned because the opinions are modestly advanced 
and courteously expressed. The book deserves liberal patronage and will be a 
most desirable addition to the collections of those bibliophiles interested in 
artistic subjects. 

Genealogy of the Hill, Dean, Pinckney, Austin, Barker, 
Anderson, Rhoades and Finch Families, by Franklin Couch, LL.B, 
Cloth, small Quarto, pp. 129. Full index. Printed for private circulation by 
Newburgh Journal Co. 1907. 

This comprehensive genealogy of seven prominent families, related to the 
Hill Family, was completed from data furnished by Mr. Uriah Hill, Jr., of 
Peekskill, N. Y., who was greatly interested in perpetuating a record of his 
forefathers for all time. It is an encouraging sign for future genealogical 
research in this State when one of such practical business life as Mr. Hill 
devotes his leisure hours to sustaining and advancing Mr. Couch in collecting 
such records as these. The line is traced in detail from Anthony Hill, an 
Englishman, born in Holland, who came to America in 1720, settled in New 
York City and eventually removed to Fox Meadows, now part of Scarsdale, 
Westchester Co., N. Y. The book is well printed, in legible type with good 
margins, and while the arrangement of heads of families does not show the full 
line of descent at a glance, yet the numerical system employed enables one to 
turn back to the preceeding ancestor with ease and despatch. The work 
should receive a welcomed place among the standard genealogies of New York 
State families. 

History and Genealogy of the Herne Family, from A.D. 1066 to 
A.D. 1907, by William T. Herne. Cloth, Svo, pp. 753. Press of Examiner 
Printing Co., Independence, Mo. 1907. 

Although the author of this work heads its title with the words "Brief 
History," the size of the volume and the voluminous data dealt with all bear wit- 
ness to a marvelous amount of patience, industry and perseverance. Asa record 
of William Herne, the London merchant, who came to America in 1680, and of 
others bearing the Herne name, whenever and wherever mentioned in Mss., 
State, County, Town and Family records, and newspaper of the day, this book 
will be found most complete and Mr. Herne is to be congratulated upon the 
successful result of years of study and research. It is profusely illustrated with 
wood cut portraits of the Hemes and their numerous descendants, and while 
the fact that it has no full name index and is not arranged according to 
genealogical methods will militate against its utility as a work of general 
reference, nevertheless it will be treasured by those whose families appear 
in its pages. 

Genealogy of the Jaquett Family, by Edwin Jaquett Sellers. Re-

i9o8.] Book Notices. : < t 

This record of an ancient Delaware Family, in type, press work, quality of 
paper and illustrations, attains a standard seldom reached in genealogical 
publications. The author traces his descent in unbroken lineage from Pierre 
Jaquet, citizen of Geneva, Switzerland, about 1500, who was the ancestor of 
Jean Paul Jaquet, the first of his name in this country, in the year 1654. The 
early records of this family when in Geneva and Nuremberg arc given with 
extraordinary completeness and the expense, time and care which must have 
been devoted to searching for, examining and transcribing thi-sc Swiss and 
German records would seem enormous. The author has arranged the names 
upon a numerical plan, which is somewhat confusing to the average student of 
genealogy, and while this system lends itself to ready reference, when studied 
and thoroughly comprehended, yet its general utility is not to be compared 
with the standard plan, followed by the chief magazines and publications. An 
individual and thus necessarily limited system of indicating descent can never 
be consulted with ease and expedition by the general reading public, no matter 
how clear and perfect it may seem to its deviser. The book is fully indexed 
and well worth acquisition by those who desire a select library of genealogical 
publications. 

Lane Genealogies, Volume III, compiled by James Hill Fitts. Cloth, 
8vo, pp. 439. The Nair-Letter Press, Exeter, N. Y. 1906. Full Index. 

This is the concluding volume of the series and deals with the English 
Family of Lane settled at Rickmansworth, Hejafordshire. England, 1542-1758; 
Job Lane of Maiden, Mass., 1649; James Lane of Casco Bay. .Maine. 1650, and 
Edward Lane of Boston, Mass.. 1657. The compiler, now deceased, has 
collected a valuable number of records, and after arranging the varied 
families — not necessarily related— has placed them in such genealogical form 
as to render the task of the future family historian in continuing the lines 
comparatively easy. The extracts from English wills of Lane are particularly 
interesting and the fact that from 1662-1816, or about one hundred and fifty 
years, the Job Lane family received an annual rental from the English estates, 
is an unparalleled instance in New England history. So few of the early 
Colonial families can make the connecting link with English ancestry of good 
yeoman stock that every additional work tracing origin in the Old Country is 
more than welcome. The book is the production of a scholar and merits 
the highest praise, not only for its accuracy and research, but for the admirable 
style of arrangement and letter press. It is well illustrated with portraits and 
pictures of the Lane kith and kin. 



Genealogies of the Lewis and Kindred Families, edited by John 
Meriwether McAllister and Lura Boulton Tandy. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 416. Press 
of E. W. Stephens Publishing Co., Columbia, Mo. 1906. Full Index. 

The authors of this interesting record frankly avow their desire to compile 
a genealogy of the Lewis Family of Virginia rather than a biographical record 
of their ancestry and have completed a work of value and utility. Every 
item of importance in public or private records has been secured and given its 
place in the pages or the book. The press work, paper and binding are 
excellent, without being extravagant, and the reading matter is tersely set 
forth. The arrangement of the lines of descent and the index are unusual, 
an individual system being used rather than a standard one. No matter how 
clear and simple such may be to the authors, it is difficult for the general student 
of genealogy and to this extent the usefulness of the book will be crippled. 

Macomber Genealogy, by Rev. Everett S. Stackpole. Paper, 8vo, pp. 
88. Press of The Journal Company, Lewiston, Me. 1907. 

A well arranged genealogical record of John Macomber of Taunton. Mass., 
1643, and his descendants, brother of William Macomber of Diixbury. 1638. 
The compiler has taken particular pains to trace the Revolutionary and May- 
flower ancestry and his search among public and private records appears to be 
exhaustive. He further gives full notes upon those in England and .Scotland 
bearing the Macomber name and a frank criticism and description of the 
several alleged Macomber coats-of-arms. which in most cases appear t«> have 
been made to order. His disavowal of all pretensions in regard to the right to

coat-armor without ample proof of authority to bear same is encouragmg in 
this age of sham pedigrees and impossible royal descents. Mr. Stackpole has 
gone to some expense^in collecting and publishing this record, and his appeal 
for subscribers to the book deserves generous response, particularly as the 
contemplated genealogy of William Macomber of Marshfield, 1638, cannot be 
issued unless the sales of the present genealogy warrant the future volume. It 
is to be regretted that no present index has been printed, although the intention 
is to index both Volumes, when the second volume is issued. 

An Abstract of a Genealogical Collection, by Malcolm Macbeth. 
Volume I. Paper, Small Quarto, pp. 50. Press of Nixon-Jones Printing Co., 
St. Louis, Mo. 

The idea of this preliminary publication is to place data so far collected 
before the public in such shape that members and kinsman of the Macbeth 
Family will be interested in correcting all errors and forwarding such additional 
information as they may possess. The names of a number of Huguenot 
families will be found on these pages, with facsimiles of original signatures, etc., 
and it is earnestly hoped that those related will make many additions to the 
compiler's store of genealogical history. The completed genealogy will con- 
tain over 55 portraits of ancestors, and about 75 pictures of houses occupied, 
monuments, tombstones, etc., and be issued in three volumes. 

Men of America. A Biographical Dictionary of Contemporaries. Edited 
by John W. Leonard. Cloth. 8vo, pp. 2,188. Press of L. R. Hamersly & Co., 
New York. 1908. 

The utility of this work cannot be questioned and the list of names appears 
to be a fairly representative one in view of the difficulty of choice involved. A 
number of like publications have been issued during the past few years and 
contain many prominent names omitted from the present work, so that the 
editor seems to have produced a selective rather than comprehensive book. 
The magnitude of his task, however, precludes perfection and the list of 
biographies will be welcome as a ready book'of reference. 

New England Family History, Vol. I, April i, 1908, No. 4. Edited 
and published by Henry Cole Quinby, A.B., LL.B. Paper, Royal 8vo, pp. 42. 
New York. 1908. 

This quarterly has undertaken to place in print the genealogical records of 
families of Maine and Massachusetts. Its pages will doubtless be devoted to 
printing the history of those early settlers, whose families have been less 
prominent and hence more neglected than the original Colonial leaders and 
their descendants. This purpose at once entitles it to a safe place upon the 
shelves of all historical-genealogical libraries and will result in the preservation 
of data rapidly becoming most difficult to secure. The magazine is well 
illustrated and printed and should do considerable work in the line selected. 

New Jersey Archives, First Series, Volume XXVI, Newspaper Extracts, 
Volume VII, 1768-1769, Edited by William Neilson. Cloth, 8vo. pp.649. Full 
index. The Call Printing and Publishing Co. 1904. 

A continuation of the publication of Documents relating to the Colonial 
History of the State, the present volume consisting of extracts from American 
Newspapers relating to New Jersey. No more instructive and valuable work 
could have been undertaken by the New Jersey Historical Society than this 
admirable digest of the Colonial press and its utility to future historians of 
New Jersey renders this series invaluable. The time and labor expended in 
searching and transcribing items from the contemporary journals, both local 
and foreign, must have been great and the decision as to the importance of the 
items must have required nicety of judgment and sound historical ability. 
The example set by the New Jersey Society should be followed by other State 
Historical Societies in regard to their own commonwealths, and funds expended 
in such research and publication cannot fail to yield a large return in member- 
ship and donations. These books are printed in clear, legible type and the 
pages bound for service, rather than ornament. The entire series, to which

Volume XXVI is a worthy addition, should be a delight to scholars and should 
be found upon the shelves of every library of any pretention throughout the 
United States. 

Collections of the New York Historical Society for the year 1900. 
Abstract of Wills. Volume IX. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 373. Printed by the Society 
New York. 1901. 

This fine publication is a continuation of the Series of Abstracts of Wills 
on file in the Surrogate's Office of the City of New York, and contains the Wills 
filed and proved from 7 January, 1777 to 7 February, 1783, with Letters of Ad- 
ministration from 17 January, 1779, to 18 February, 1783. The period covered 
by this volume is peculiarly interesting, embracing as it does the most im- 
portant years of the Revolutionary War, and its subject matter proves beyond 
dispute that any impression that wills were not recorded during the struggle 
for liberty is erroneous. Both the British and the State Governments exercised 
probate jurisdiction during the war, the former covering New York City, Long 
Island, Staten Island and the lower part of Westchester County, while the 
latter covered the remaining part of the Province of New York. At the end of 
the War, Samuel Bayard, the last Royal Secretary delivered over to Lewis 
Allaire Scott, Deputy State Secretary, some 709 original wills, probate and 
administration papers, etc., and also the volumes of recorded wills. The 
record from Colonial to State Government is thus continuous and full, and this 
volume of the Historical Society should be a mine of information to those 
interested in the history and genealogy of the patriots and tories. The book is 
clearly printed, has an exhaustive index of names and is fully up to the high 
standard set by the Society in all its publications. Great praise should be 
accorded to Mr. William S. Pelletreau, the compiler, for his mvaluable labors 
in this field. 

^ Genealogical Collections Relating to the Families of Noblet, 
with some particular account of William Noblit of Middletown Township, 
Chester County (now Delaware County), Pennsvlvania, U. S. A. Compiled by 
John Hyndman Noblit. Cloth, 8vo, pp.400. Printed for private circulation by 
Ferris & Leach. I906. 

This is a most complete collection of data concerning the family records of 
those named Noblat, Noblot and Noblets of France; Noblet and Noblett of 
Great Britain; Noblet, Noblett, Noblit and Noblitt of America, illustrated by 
facsimiles of the several coat-armors used by the various families in France. 
'Tho the name is an unusual one, Mr. Noblit has gathered together a mass of 
important material, and while he has made no attempt at genealogical arrange- 
ment, the gleanings are now preserved for all time and will prove a mine of 
information for future searchers in this field. Each French record is followed 
by its careful translation, and the style of arranging and printing this work is 
heartily to be commended, while a full index renders all references ready and 
time saving. The task of putting the different records into type was no light 
one and the entire appearance of the book reflects high credit upon the 
intelligence and artistic facilities of its compiler.

pp. 532. Full Index. Printed for Private Circulation by J. B. Lippincott 
Company, Philadelphia. 1907. With a Second Volume of 37 Charts showmg 
Descent of Female Lines. 

The lives of John Ogden, the Pilgrim, and his descendants, K540-1906, 
inspired this magnificent work, one of the finest ^ever published in this country, 
and in searching out and arranging the historical and genealogical matter 
incorporated in the book the compiler, who unfortunately died before the 
completion of his task, erected an everlasting monument to his industry, ability 
and family pride. It is difficult to review the characteristics of this volume, 
when all it contains is admirable and beyond criticism. No less than 30 general 
illustrations and 54 portraits are incorporated in the family history and the 
diversity of type, mtncate press- work, beautiful paper and margins all make it

a masterpiece of composition. The genealogical system of arranging the 
names not only follows the most approved custom but in some regards is an 
actual improvement upon the standard arrangement — the ancestral chain, 
given after the name of each descendant having issue, showing the full line of 
descent at a glance and each descendant having his or her own number. 
Ancestors of any line can be turned to instantly. The index of names might 
have referred to the name number instead of the page number, and thus 
obviated some delay in looking down the page for the name, but this is a 
debatable improvement. The history of this family discloses a long line of 
patriots — many of whom held positions of the highest responsibility and trust 
in the community and none of whom were unworthy of perpetual record. 
This work is a model for all would-be family historians to follow and neither 
years nor progress in the art of book-making will make obsolete this volume or 
take from it the unique quality of being as perfect as human skill can make it. 

Ontario Historical Society. Papers and Records. Volume VIII. 
Paper, 8vo, pp. 228. Published by the Society, Toronto. 1907. 

This is a continuation of the admirable series of publications of this Society 
and the present volume is fully as interesting as the seven preceeding books. 
It contains well written articles on The Insurrection in the Short Hills in 1838; 
The Hamiltons of Queenstown, Kingston and Hamilton, and three papers on 
Kingston History, together with the Church Records of the Niagara Peninsular, 
Stamford and Chippewa, and Extracts from the Cummings Papers. The 
annals of early Canadian settlers are being rapidly gathered together and put 
into reference shape by this excellent Society. 

Portsmouth and Newcastle, New Hampshire, Cemetery Inscrip- 
tions, by Arthur H. Locke. Paper, 8vo, pp. 44. Portsmouth, Privately 
Printed. 1907. 

This interesting record consists of abstracts from some two thousand of the 
oldest tombstones in the cities of Portsmouth and Newcastle, N. H., and is 
supplementary to material already published in the New Englattd Register. 
It completes the vital statistics of the early settlers of Portsmouth and its 
alphabetical arrangement of names, abbreviation marks of locality and form of 
printing attest to the time, labor and care of the compiler. It is due to the 
generosity and genealogical sense of such men as Mr. Locke that this country 
will in time have secured as complete a record of its early colonists as can be 
obtained at this late day. 

Shakers of Ohio. Papers concerning the Shakers of Ohio, with LTn- 
published Manuscripts, by J. P. McLean, Ph.D. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 415. Press of 
L. J. Heer Printing Co., Columbus, O. 1907. 

It is somewhat paradoxical that any historical-genealogical record should 
be kept of a sect whose foundation principle was opposed to the perpetuation 
of the race. Nevertheless the story of the rise of the Shaker Communities in 
Ohio and their present decline and disintergration is interesting reading and 
the author has accomplished a fine task in collecting and printing these 
records, fast going to decay and destruction. Shakerism was promoted in this 
country by Ann Lee in 1779 at New Lebanon, Columbia Co., N. Y., where 
the parent community established itself and under the leadership and revel- 
ations of this extraordinary woman, claiming to be a manifestation of the 
second coming of Christ, the sect flourished and spread throughout the 
United States. The book is well illustrated with portraits, pictures of Shaker 
communities and homes, and will prove a mine of information to those 
interested in the growth and fall of a peculiar people. 

Historical Manual of the Congregational Church of Topsfield, 
Mass., 1663-1907. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 60. Published by the Church Press of A. T. 
Merrill, Topsfield, Mass. 

This early Colonial ch"urch was organized in 1663 with the Rev. Thomas 
Gilbert as minister. The early town records, which also contained the church 
records prior to 25 March, 1659, were lost by fire, and the first volume of 
church registers commences in 1684, when the membership was 49, viz.: 22

males and 27 families. This little book, setting forth, as it does, the simple 
annals of a quiet parish, should be interesting reading to the descendants of the 
u '^i""" ^""^ ^^^ parishioners. The biographical sketches of the Ministry of 
the Church evince careful research and preparation and the book is a fit 
memorial of a religious establishment which did much to sustain and advance 
the early colonists of Massachusetts. 

English Ancestry of Governor William Tracy of Virginia, 1620, 
AND OF His Only Son, Lieutenant Thomas Tkacv of Sai f m Mass ano 
Norwich, Conn., by Dwight Tracy. M.D., D.U.S. Paper, Quarto, pp. ji 
Press of The Journal of American History, New Haven, Conn. 1908. 

This pamphlet is of unusual interest in that it proves beyond peradventure 
that the English Pedigree of Tracy, printed in |. Hritton's " Toddington " in 1K40, 
is erroneous and incomplete, in setting forth that William Tracy, who married 
Mary, daughter of Sir John Conway of Arrow, Co. Warwick, died without issue. 
Britton was a leading English authority and without doubt compiled his 
genealogical chart of the Family of Tracy from ancient deeds, records and 
Heraldic visitations. His error is shown clearly by the early letters of William 
Tracy and records of the Virginia Co., wherein is mentioned his wife Mary, 
son Thomas and daughter Joyce, who married Captain Nathaniel Powell. 
This son Thomas is later identified with Lt. Thomas Tracy of Watertown and 
Salem, Mass., in 1636, and thus a long line of descendants can be linked up to 
an ancienf and noble family in England, descended from Egbert, first Saxon 
King of England, 800-838 Anno Dominie. The evidence is indisputable and 
sets forth not only in reprints but in facsimile reproduction of the ancient 
documents the proof positive of the continuation of the line of William Tracy 
in Virginia and New England. Relation to English nobility and the right 
to bear coat-armor is so frequently assumed without the slightest proof save 
the statement of furnishers of ready-made pedigrees that Dr. Tracy's scholarly 
and exhaustive research should be a matter of pride to all his kin. The 
pamphlet is illustrated with a full page plate of the Tracy Arms, blazoned 
in proper colors, and a portrait of Dr. Tracy, together with excellent facsimile 
reproductions of ancient documents and pictures of the several manors and 
county seats of the family in England. 

Ancestors of Rev. William Howe Whittemore, Bolton, Ct., 1800, 
Rye, N. Y., 1885, and of his wife, Maria Clark, New York, 1803, Brooklyn, 1886, 
by William Plumb Bacon. Cloth, Quarto, pp. 124. Limited Edition. Press of 
Adkins Printing Co., New Britain, Ct. 1907. 

The compiler has charted and traced back as far as possible the several 
ancestors of the Rev. Mr. Whittemore and his wife and set forth no less than 55 
lines of descent converging in the two subjects of this work. Such method of 
genealogical record is of value and interest to the immediate family of the 
Rev. Mr. Whittemore, and from the publication of this interesting record it is 
hoped the compiler will be encouraged to devote a full genealogical volume to 
the Whittemore family only. The book is well printed but is not arranged ac- 
cording to the now well established and standard form insisted upon by the 
leading genealogical societies and the lack of an index of names must be 
deplored. The compiler frankly states that the arrangement of the work in 
his opinion renders an index superfluous but the utility of his work is thereby 
minimized and localized to individual members of the vVhittemore family. 

Mr. Thomas Floyd-Jones has issued an Svo, cloth, index to his "Floyd- 
Jones Family" reviewed in the April, 1907, Record. 

Mr. Frederic G. Mather, compiler and editor of New York in the 
Revolution, and the supplement to the same, is now engaged upon the story of 
the Refugees who crossed from Long Island to Connecticut in 1776. The 
story will include copies of all the original documents which Mr. Mather 
already has. He would, however, appreciate any information (more especially 
as to the return of the Refugees to Long Island, and the whereabouts of their 
descendants to-day) that descendants of the Refugees may have and arc 
inclined to give. His address is, Stamford, Conn.

MAJOR-GENERAL GARRIT HOPPER STRIKER. 



By Hopper Striker Mott. 



The subject of this sketch was born in the mansion at Striker's 
Bay, which stood on an eminence overlooking the shores of "a 
certain cove," as the deed words it, at present 96th Street and 
Riverside Drive. He descended in the si.Kth generation from 
Jacobus Strijcker — the progenitor of the family in America — 
Magistrate of the Court of Burgomasters and Schepens, whose 
history has been heretofore told in this publication for January, 
1907. The General's grandfather, Gerret Striker, for whom he 
was named, assumed the method of spelling his name which has 
been retained by the Manhattan branch of the family and dif- 
ferentiates it from the rest of the clan. He settled at the Bay in 
1764 with his wife and son James, born Sept. 18, 1755, where he 
built his home. 

The mansion stood on the edge of the line of British defence 
before and during the Battle of Harlem Heights. This locality 
was for long periods a hotbed of discord. For many years the 
residents of the district lived in daily fear and expectation of 
incursions and indignities. Mrs. Gerrit Striker whose husband 
had lately died (Sept. 17, 1775), opposed the enlistment of her son 
for these reasons, feeling with just cause that his assistance at 
this juncture would be needed. It is known that during the 
battle he used the family wagon to convey the wounded from the 
field and that the mansion was turned into a temporary hospital. 
Many soldiers of either side were cared for here with the aid of 
his mother. Twice the house was pillaged and finally all the live 
stock was driven off. Several skirmishes between the picket 
lines occurred on the immediate premises, in one of which a 
patriot and two Tories were killed in the lane which led from the 
Bloomingdale Road. These were buried near where they fell. 
Early in the struggle some officers were quartered in the house 
and at least one party of captives was billeted on the inmates, 
pending their removal to improvised prisons at the lower end of 
the Island. James Striker joined the American army, going to 
New Jersey where he enlisted as a member of the Light Horse 
Troop, 2nd Battalion of Somerset Militia, of which his relative in

the same generation, John Stryker, was captain. This troop 
formed part of Washington's forces and was present at the battles 
of Trenton, in Dec, 1776, Princeton, in Jan., 1777, Germantown, in 
Oct. of that year, and Monmouth, in June, 1778. It was during his 
absence that these incursions occurred. The place was again 
invaded by the enemy in 1781. The slaves and servant men 
were driven off and the women compelled for days to cook and 
attend to the wants of their captors. 

Yet a boy when his enlistment expired, a longing for home 
caused Striker, in the summer of 1780, to set out towards that goal. 
On reaching the ancestral habitation of his Captain, at Millstone, 
N. J., he was fitted out as a yeoman and in this disguise proceeded 
on his way. At Tilly Tudlum, just north of Fort Lee, he suc- 
ceeded in getting a boat wherewith he reached the shores of his 
mother's property "in the enemy's country." Soon after his 
arrival he took out a license from the Secretary of the Province 
on Sept. 23, to marry Mary, dau, of Johannes and Wyntje (Dyck- 
raan) Hopper. She lived only six years, dying at the age of 
twenty-six, on Sept. 20, 1786. Her remains were deposited in the 
Hopper burial ground, at the southwest corner of Ninth Avenue 
and 50th Street. Three children resulted from this union, viz.: 
i. Ann, b. Feb. 23, bap. June 25, 1781; d. unm. April 12, 

i860, 
ii. Lavinia (Winifred), b. May 27, 1782; m. Jordan Mott, 
at Striker's Bay, Sept. 24, 1801; d. at *' Mott's Point," 
March 16, 1862. 
iii. Garrit Hopper, b. March 29, 1784. 

After James Striker's death the mansion became a tavern. 
In 1841 Joseph Francis was its landlord. The years of his 
tenancy were memorable for the number of noted personages 
who assembled there. Poe and his child wife, Virginia, spent 
the summers of 1843 and 1844 in a cottage near by which stood at 
84th Street. While he resided in Bloomingdale he wrote that 
that notable poem, The Raven, and it was his habit to wander 
down the declivity to the shores of the bay. Often did he occupy 
a seat on Francis's piazza to enjoy the prospect and commune 
with his friends and familiars, of whom the names of Woodward, 
Morris, Willis, English, the author of Ben Bolt, and the lawyer- 
poet, William Ross Wallace, are recalled. Trees of tremendous 
girth and height were on the ground, one of which, "a grand old 
elm," inspired Morris to compose that noble lyric, Woodman, 
Spare that Tree. In 1837, wrote the poet, he caught a tenant of 
the property in the act of cutting it down for firewood. "The 
old gentleman," with whom he was walking, asked the iconoclast 
what it was worth when felled, and ascertaining that ten dollars 
would prevent its destruction, paid the price and exacted an 
agreement in writing that it should be saved. We have Morris's 
testimony that in 1862 it was still standing. 

Under the tavern's successive bonifaces it became a noted 
resort for excursions, target-shooting, etc. There was a dock and 
small station of the Hudson River Railroad on the grounds. 
The lawn fronting the river made a fine dancing floor, and at the

rear of the house were found the targets. A well-known cleriry- 
man is authority for the statement that here was a scene of 
sylvan beauty unsurpassed, and that he had never in his long life 
been m so entrancing a spot. The property was sold in June 
1856, and the house was destroyed by fire in the early sixties' 
when Robert Pennoyer was its landlord. 

The youngest child and only son of the family passed his 
boyhood at his father's house and after an education which 
befitted his position, started his business career with monev 
supplied by his grandfather. In 180 1, at the age of seventeen 
he was living at 181 Broadway. He was a merchant in 18^3 at 
55 Broad Street and in 1852 and 1853 the directory places his 
office at 78 Broadway with his son Garrit, although military 
headquarters continued to be his downtown centre, he having 
exhibited a marked aptitude for that career. An early bio- 
graphical sketch of him asserts that he had before his twenty- 
second year proved himself a good soldier and thereafter an 
efficient officer, panting for service and eager for the attainment 
of those laurels which can be earned alone in such employ. At 
the age of 26, he was commissioned Lieutenant in the 5lh N. Y. 
Regiment, 2nd Brigade of Infantry, under Col. J. W. Mulligan, 
with rank from March 25, 1809. On the breaking out of the 
Second War with England he was assigned as Captain of the 4th 
Company in the 5th Regiment of Volunteers. Isaac A. van Hook 
having succeeded Mulligan in command. During the excited 
period of the fortifying of Bloomingdale Heights, while he was 
living at Striker's Bay, he attended the different calls of his home 
ward (the Ninth) and was active in obtaining subscriptions and 
laborers. Meetings were held in Rodger's Tavern, at 70th Street 
and Bloomingdale Road, which were attended by the neighbors 
in a united effort to hasten the erection of defences for the safety 
of their homes, that ward in which the work was carried on 
being the centre of active preparation. When not engaged in 
a military capacity Captain Striker lent the enthusiasm of his 
youthful endeavors to stimulating others, to seeing that the 
family horses did their proper share at the works and to collect- 
ing vegetables from the farm and attending to their distribution. 
His home was so near the line of defences that he passed much 
time during their construction on the ground, and with the 
assistance of his father's slaves, aided and abetted the progress 
of the work. The regiment to which he belonged was the last 
to be regularly designated by the Committee of Defence and it 
practically completed the works on Bloomingdale Heights. 

On March 22, 1816, Striker was promoted to the rank of Major 
in the 82nd Regt., 3rd Brigade, commanded by Lieut. -Col. Joseph 
D. Fay, and in the regimental orders issued at this time, his former 
Colonel (van Hook) expressed himself in the warmest terms of 
Capt. Striker's "soldierly conduct and gentlemanly demeanor" 
while under his command. Promotion to the Lieut. -Cttk)nelcy 
of the same regiment followed April 24, 1818. He reached the 
grade of Brigadier in 1828, and rose to the rank of Major- 
General in Feb., 1837. 



156 Major-General Garrit Hopper Striker. [July, 

The General commanded the 2nd Division of tmiformed 
troops on Oct. 14, 1842, in the notable pageant that marked, 
amid great popular rejoicing, the completion of the Croton 
Water Works. In fact, he was a prominent figure in all the 
celebrations of his time, for example: the reception to ex-Presi- 
dent Lamar of Texas, in 1840; the anniversary of the Battle of 
the Thames, Oct. 5 of that year, at which Gen. Harrison won 
renown, when he served as Grand Marshal of the parade and the 
ball at Harrison's inauguration March 4, 1841, at Washington 
Hotel. "The immense ball room, the most magnificent in the 
Union, was arrayed with all the taste and elegance which the 
unrivalled Dejonge could bestow," says the newspaper report of 
the affair. In April of the same year, he was aide at the funeral 
ceremonies in Harrison's memory, and was one of the committee 
at the reception to Charles Dickens and wife who reached New 
York, Jan. 20, 1842. In June, 1843, President Tyler visited the 
city on his way to the dedication of Bunker Hill Monument. The 
great parade was held on the day of his arrival. The steamboat 
New Haven, Capt. Vanderbilt, left Castle Garden wharf on the 
17th and proceeded to Perth Amboy where the President was 
met and escorted to the city. During the funeral honors to 
Major-General Morgan Lewis, April 10, 1844, he was likewise 
conspicuous. Webster made his debut before the New York bar 
in the General's employ in May of this year. 

A "grand military ball" was tendered to the General at the 
Apollo Rooms in 1846, at which he was presented with a service 
of plate, a gold medal and a pair of " Revolutionary boots." The 
Sun of April 4 reported that the beauty and fashion of the city 
graced the occasion. London Punch printed a facetious diatribe 
anent the boots, with a picture thereof, which filled a page of 
that noted periodical. The General was also prominent at the 
funeral solemnities over the death of Andrew Jackson, and at 
the great pageant on Oct. 19, 1847, at the laying of the corner- 
stone of the Washington Monument at Hamilton Square. 

"Being the idol of the boys," says a chronicler, "the General's 
appearance with them in military costume on horseback was the 
signal for an unfailing ovation." His hair and eyes were as 
black as a raven's wing. He used to relate that he had lived in 
the Outward, in the 9th, 12th and 22nd Wards although he had 
never moved. The Evening Express dubbed him "gold snuff-box 
Striker" from his ostentatious manner of using that article. 
His speeches as reported were of a lively and spirited disposition, 
full of gracious raillery, good humored and witty withal. In 
his personal appearance he was immaculate. The N. V. Gazette 
noticed the military ball, of which he was a manager, which was 
held at the N. Y. Theatre in the Bowery, Jan. 8, 1829, to celebrate 
the victory at New Orleans. This edict of fashion was laid down 
in the advertisement announcing the event: "Small clothes are 
considered as part of full dress for officers and citizens, but 
pantaloons, having been recentl)'' admitted as appropriate 
costume, will be approved." The General was a " decided but 
reasonable Whig" and served as Deputy Receiver of Taxes on the

Native American Ticket in 1844, and represented the 12th Ward 
m the Legislature in 1848. 

On June 25, 1818, General Striker (then Colonel) m. Eliza 
Bella, dau. of Capt. Alexander McDougal, of the British service 
and his wife, Mary Elsworth of New York. They continued to 
reside at Striker's Bay until John Hopper, the younger, died the 
following year, when they removed to the latter's residence 
" Rosevale" on the Hudson at the foot of what later became 53rd 
Street. It was approached by the lane which his great-grand- 
father laid out from his homestead at the Bloomingdale Road 
and 51st Street, and which ended at the mansion. It took the 
the name of Striker's Lane thereafter. Entrance was obtained to 
the grounds through two stone posterns leading to a road which 
divided around a circle lying immediately before the house and 
led to the family barns and stables. The old place was set in the 
forest with gardens to the east, and on the west massive trees to 
the water's edge. Trees such as were not deemed to be found 
within miles of the city towered overhead. Majestic peacocks 
guarded the portal and strutted about in august grandeur. 
Looking from the broad veranda, a superb river view met the 
gaze, and in the immediate foreground one saw a goldfish pond, 
surrounded by a railing on which sat plump Muscovy drakes, 
which flew at one's approach and struck the water with a re- 
sounding splash. Descending the steps to and beyond the pond, 
winding walks under the trees and by rocks and wild flowers and 
bushes, finally brought one to the billiard house, where an old- 
fashioned table, so large as to leave barely space to promenade 
around it, occupied the lower story. Upstairs were garnered the 
fruits and nuts for winter consumption. Continuing the walk, 
still under grand natural trees and along narrow meandering 
paths, the bath-house was reached, situated in a cove over the 
sandy floor of which flowed a stream whose sources were the 
springs in the pond above. The old soldier was a man of taste 
and culture and the conservatories were his great pleasure. The 
name "Rosevale" was doubly appropriate, as a large share of the 
enclosed grounds were given to rose culture, the remainder being 
a valley sloping precipitously in places but generally gradually 
towards the river, the mansion itself being the line of demark- 
ation. 

Here the General maintained a boundless hospitality and 
dwelt some fifty years, constantly adding to the charms of his 
garden, his particular hobby. His numerous friends and admirers 
flocked around him and the abode was the centre of hospitality 
for leading men of the nation. On one of the window panes in 
the parlor appeared the names of Lafayette, Kossuth and Clay, 
scratched thereon with a diamond during their respective visits. 
"Old Bullion" Benton, Webster, Greeley, General Scott and other 
military celebrities, with a host of lesser lights, were welcome 
here. At the funerals of two of his distinguished friends during 
1852 Striker acted as aide in the procession in honor of the 
obsequies of Clay July 20, and as pallbearer for Webster he repre- 
sented one of the then 31 States of the Union, Nov. 16. The

General was a conspicuous figure in the New York of his day, 
strikingly like his old friend Winfield Scott. It has been said of 
him that he united in his person the gentleman and the soldier, 
the high-spirited convivialist, the good husband, the tender father, 
the kind friend — in short all the qualities that were centered in 
the gentleman of the olden time. He departed this life at his 
home on April 15, 1868. The Rev. Dr. Hutton of the Washington 
Square Church and Domine van Aken of the Bloomingdale 
Reformed Church officiated at the ceremonies held there, when a 
vast concourse thronged the spacious mansion and lined the lane 
and the street as the procession passed. His remains were 
interred in Trinity Cemetery, where a plot had been prepared 
owing to the contemplated demolition of his ancestral church 
and the consequent abandonment of the family vault. At one of 
the last services held there, his funeral discourse was preached 
by Domine van Aken, which was published in full in the Christian 
Intelligencer. In recognition of his active participation in the 
construction of the defences on Bloomingdale Heights, the 
descendants of those who aided therein, as represented by the 
Daughters of 1812, inscribed his name on the tablet placed on 
Fayerweather Hall of Columbia University to commemorate the 
defences erected during that war.

THE KNICKERBOCKER FAMILY. 



By William B. Van Alstyne, M.D. 

(Continued from Vol. XXXIX. p. ,25, of The Rrcord.) 

21. Maritjen' Knickerbocker (Laurens," Harmcn lansenM m 
24 May, 1748 at Salisbury, Conn. Ruloflf WhiteTwe/tlb about 
1724, son of Joshua White* and Christina Butcher Their mar 
page is recorded on the church records at Germantown N Y 
m 1748 (full date is not given), he being "son of Gasguve Weit'' 
and she "daughter of Laurenz Knickerbocker" There is no 
such name as Gasguve, but it is interesting to note that Gzysyn 
and Mary Weydt have a child baptised .3 Nov., ly.i, at AlbL^, 
NY., and that Gryphyn Wyet stands as sponsor there in 1722 
The settlement of the estate of Jane Butcher proves that Ruloff 
White was son of Joshua White and Christina Butcher 

On the 21 March, 1767, Christiana White requested that letters 
of administration be granted on the estate of her mother Tane 
Butcher, late of Salisbury, Conn., to her son Ruliff White In 
the distribution of this estate the heirs of Kathren Knickerbocker 
have a share, no names being mentioned (Sharon, Conn Probate 
Records, book 3, p. 190). Children baptised at Germantown: 

i. Maritgen,* bap. 24 July, 1748; spon.: Benjamin and 

Catharin Knickerbocker, 
ii. Christin, bap. 30 Jan., 1750; spon.: Herman and Cath- 
arin Knickerbocker; d. 23 June, 1818; m. Gabriel 
Butcher, b. 16 June, 1747; d. 22 Oct., 1820. 

22. Catherine' Knickerbocker (Laurens," Harmen Jansen'), 
bap. 19 Oct., 1731, at Germantown, N. Y.; m. 17 Sept., 1762 at 
Claverack, N. Y., Willem Van Alstyne, bap. 10 Bee, 1721, at 
Albany, N. Y.; d. May 22, 1802, at North East, N. Y.; son of 
Thomas Van Alstyne and Maria Van Alen. Willem m. ( i) about 
1744, Christyntje Van Alen, bap. 16, June, 1723, at Kinderhook, 
N. Y., dau. of Stephanus Van Alen and Marya Muller. 

William Van Alstyne probably lived on the farm inherited in 
1760 from his father to whom it was granted in 1752 by John 
Van Rensselaer. It was described as lying between the Kinder- 
hook Creek and the Claverack Creek. 

On I May, 1772, William Van Alstyne of Claverack, yeoman, 
leased a house and shop and a fulling mill with mill dam and 
two acres of land to Thomas Avery of\he same place, fuller, for 

* Joshua Weyt (White), m. 24 Nov., 1720, "at the parsonage at Claverack, 
N. Y.," Christina Dutcher (New York City Lutheran Church Records). He 
was son of Willem Wit and Judith Meels, bap. i May, 1698, at Kingston, N. Y.; 
she was dau. of Roelof de Duidser and Jannetje Brusy, bap. 8 Aug.. 1703. at 
Albany, N. Y. Roelof de Duidser and Jannetje Brusy were ni. 17 Nov., 1700, 
at Kingston; she being dau. of Christoffel Brusy and Styntje Claes.

the term of seven years. Said Thomas was to have wood for his 
own fire, and also for " the press " from any part of said William's 
land. 

In Aug., 1 791, he bought a farm in Hillsdale, N. Y., of John 
Collier. 

On 19 Oct., 1793, William Van Alstyne deeded as a gift to his 
son Lawrence a negro boy called Tom. The residence of both 
father and son was given as Hudson, but in Dec. of 1794, articles 
of agreement were entered into between Nicholas and Philip 
Hoffman of the one part, and William Van Alstyne of Columbia 
County, of the other part, wherein the party of the first part bind 
themselves to convey on the first day of April, 1795, unto the 
party of the second part a certain farm in the town of Amenia, 
in the county of Dutchess, which formerly belonged to Col. 
Brinton Paine, and was at that time in the occupation of Elijah 
Bryan, as overseer for the said Nicholas and Philip Hoffman. 
In the final division of the county into townships this farm came 
to lie in North East instead of Amenia. 

On 12 July, 1799, William sold to his son Lawrence, also 'of 
Amenia, N. Y., the farm he had bought of Nicholas and Philip 
Hoffman. 

William Van Alstyne was a captain in Col. Jeremiah Hoge- 
boom's regiment which served during the Revolutionary War. 
His commission, dated 4 April, 1770, and signed by Cadwallader 
Colden, Governor of the Province of New York, is in the pos- 
session of the Holland Society. 

He was buried in a small burying ground on the farm bought 
from the Hoffmans. His wife was also buried there but the 
tombstone has long ago disappeared. She survived her husband, 
for in her son Lawrence's will, made 2 May, 1806, he provides that 
his mother, Catharine Van Alstyne, shall have her support out of 
his estate, and at his house as long as she lives {Lambert Jans e 
Van Alstyne and Some of His Descendants., by Lawrence Van 
Alstyne of Sharon, Conn.). 

Children of William Van Alstyne and Catherine Knicker- 
bocker:

Jan Jansen Bratt "de Noorman," dau. of Dirck Dircksen Mayer and Maritie 
Post, the latter b. in Brazil. Maritie Post m. (3) 26 Nov., 1690, at Albany, 
Eduwart Carbert, b. in England. Barent Albertsen was son of Albert An- 
driessen Bratt " de Noorman " and Annetje Barents Van Rotmers, natives of 
Frederickstad, Norway, who left Amsterdam, Holland, 25 Sept., 1636, in the ship 
The Anns of Rensslaerwyck, which arrived in Albany 7 April, 1637. They 
settled on a stream just south of Albany which in consequence became known 
as Norman's Kill, and here he laid out a farm and built a mill (N. Y. Gen. 
AND BioG. Record, Vol. XXXV, p. 45). Annetje Barents V'an Rotmers d. in 
1662, and on 10 July, 1663, her children gave to Storm Albertsen Van Der Zee, 
her eldest son, power of attorney to collect property inherited from Pieter 
Jacobsen van Rendsburgh (Rynsburgh), husband of Geesie Barents, their 
maternal grandmother (Notary Papers at Albany, p. 347). This right enabled 
Storm to sell a share in a house and lot at New Amsterdam inherited from his 
mother and occupied by Burgomaster Allard Anthony. Geesie Barents was in 
this country as early as 1642, for in June of that year Pieter Jacobsen, b. in 
Rendsburgh (probably Rendsburg, a town of Prussia, in Holstein, on the 
Eider), and " Gysje Pieters" (Pieters meaning wife of Pieter), both of Fort 
Orange, made a joint will (Berthold Fernow's Calendar of Wills, No. 956) in 
which real and personal property was left to her dau. "Annitje Alberts" 
(Alberts meaning wife of Albert). In 1667 Geesie Barents was at Kingston, 
N. Y., standing as one of the sponsors for Cornelia, dau. of Roelof Swartwout 
and Eefgen Albertse Bratt. 

Albert Andriessen Bratt m. (2) Geertruy Pieterse Coeymaiis, widow of Ab- 
raham Pietersen Vosburgh, but was afterwards legally separated from her. 
Through her first husband she became ancestress of the Vosburg Family. 
There were no children by her second husband. On 31 July, 1695, Geertruy 
Vosburgh received from the heirs of Pieter Van Alen a grant of land on the 
Kinderhook Creek, consisting of one-fourth that property called the Groot 
Stuk and occupied by her for her eldest son Pieter, the grantee. This deed 
was confirmed in April, 1713, by a quit claim deed. Albert Andriessen Bratt 
d. 7 June, 1686.

GENEALOGICAL NOTES RELATING TO THE ENGLISH 
ANCESTORS OF THE YOUNGS OF SOUTHOLD, N. Y. 

Communicated by Lucy Dubois Akerly. 

,y.?^^ ""K ^I?^ interesting characters of our Colonial history was 
^l ? r ^f^ Younges (Yonges), principal founder of Sou hold 
the earliest town on the east end of Long Island* He ^7,) 
Joan Herrmgton; m (2) Mary Warren. The baptisms, mar? ages 
and btinals given below and relating to the faniilies of Hernngt 
ton and Warren have never before been printed, and are from 
a transcript of the Parish Register of Sou^hwold England an^ 
are published through the courtesy of Rev. Epher Whitak^r of 
wold!" England^" '"^ ^^^- ^^'"^' ""^^ Suttonf Vicar of Soith- 

John Yonge of St. Margaretts', Suffolk, ae. 35 yrs.,t and Joan 
his wife, ae. 34, with 6 children, John: Tho: Anne: Rachell- Marv^ 
& Josueph, were examined by the Commissioners, 11 or 12 May 
1637, being desirous to pass to Salem in New England to inhabit' 
& being forbyden passage, went not from Yramouth | 

Nevertheless on 14:6:1637, Mr. John Younges was received as 
an inhabitant of Salem, Mass. How he became in 1640 the first 
minister at Southold. Long Island, and the central figure there 
is too well known to be repeated here.g ' 

Just what was intended by St. Margaret's, Sufifolk, is hard to 
determine, probably the edifice at Reydon, and the mother 
church of St. Edmond's, Southwold, two miles distant; although 
there were apparently other St. Margaret's in Suffolk at the tinie 
at Easton Barent, Ilkelshall, Heringham, Leiston and Lowestoft' 

The father of Rev. John Yonges, Rev. Christopher Yonges 
was inducted to the living of Reydon with Southwold, 14 Tan ' 
1 6 1 1 . II -^ ' 

On the last day of Feb., r6ii, a mandate was issued for 
inducting Christopher Yonges, Clerk, into the real possession of 
the Vicarage of Reidon, which position he occupied until his 
death in 1626. His will describes him as of Southwold, and he is 
interred in the chancel of the church there. 

His widow Margaret, and six children survived him, five of 
whom came to America. Two children, Edward and Elizabeth 
Yonges, presumably the eldest of the family, were drowned on 
St. James day, 16—, in company with 30 others from Southwold 
in returning from Dunwich Fair.!

1 94 Genealogical Notes Relating to the English Ancestors [July, 

There was early a chapel at Reydon, known as St. Margaret 
de Rissemere. Greatly do we deplore the loss of the early Rey- 
don and Southwold Parish Registers with their priceless gene- 
alogies. That of Reydon now dates from 17 12, that of Southwold 
from 1602, 

The latter has the following: "1622, July 25, John Yonges, & 
Joan Herrington, widow," and the baptisms of their children 
John and Thomas in 1623 and 1625, respectively. 

Their marriage license, 24 July, 1622, calls John, bachelor, and 
Joan, spinster. The bond was in Mr. Christopher Yongs.* 

The original Southwold Parish Register, a long, narrow book, 
which the writer had the privilege of examining, reads distinctly, 
"Joan Herrington, widow." The writing is the same as for 
several years previously, an unusually clear hand, presumably 
that of the father of groom, Rev. Christopher Yonges, himself. 
At any rate, the entry was unquestionably made during his 
incumbency, and is therefore that to which we attach most 
weight. t 

If a widow as seems probable, Joan was doubtless that Joan 
Jentilman, who m. at Southwold, 7 March, 1613, Robert Herring- 
ton. His son Robert was bap. i Oct., 16 16, after which we hear 
no more of him. 

Joan, dau. of William and Agnes Jentleman, was bap. 5 July, 
1603; Robert, son of Margt. Herrington, the 2 Nov., 1607. If 
these parties were m. in 16 13, they could not have been bap. as 
infants. 

A Joan Jentilman m. Thomas Beaumont 14 Nov., 1628, 

Margaret Herrington was buried 6 Dec, 161 1. 
William Jentleman was buried the 28 April, 1616. Letters of 
administration on the estate of William Jentilman of Southwold 
were issued 11 Feb., 1616 (qu. 1617?), to his widow Anne. 

Thomas Jentilman (Jentleman) b, in Southwold in 15 11, was 
Bailiff there in 1534, '72, '86, '96 and 1604, and d. 30 July, 1609.! 

Probably Thomas, son of Rev. John Yonges was named after 
him. 

Other Jentilman entries are: 
1603: March 2, Thomas, son of James & Mary Jentleman, baptized. 

Marriages: 
1603, Feb. 6, Richard Jentleman & Susan Capp.

1 6 14, Jan. 2, Thomas Hunter & Susan Jentleman. 

* Marrirge Licenses from the Official Note Book of the Archdeaconry of 
Suffolk, at the Ipswich Probate Court. 

t The original meaning of spinster was descriptive of an occupation, and 
as such was sometimes used of married women.

1633, Nov. 15, Letters of Administration of Yongs of 

Oxford, to Daniel, mother of the deceased. 

1636, Aug. 6, Will of Henry Young of Henley, proved. 

That Yonges abounded in Suffolk is shown by the fact that in 
1674, 46 Yonges households paid the hearth tax in the above 
county. 

A small farm of 160 acres, near Wenhaston station, about 
seven miles from Southwold, was entailed for three generations 
and intended "to be kept in the family so long as there was a 
John Yonges." 

The tenants were unable to hold it, and when the entail 
expired, the land was sold in Oct., 1901. Two of the owners, 
John Yonges, were buried at Wenhaston in 1868 and 1899 re- 
spectively. 

The last owner, the third John Yonges, told the writer in 1903 
that his grandfather probably came from Uggelshall, as they 
were obliged to settle the above estate there. 

Thomas Warren (Warryn), merchant, was of Southwold. His 
will, 4 March, 1641, proved 13 Sept., 1645, names son Thomas, 
dau. Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Gooch of Southwold; two grand- 
children. Alary Gardiner and Benjamin Y^oungs, children of his 
dau. Alary, wife of John Youngs, now in New England; dau. Mar- 
garet, wife of Joseph Youngs; dau. Christian, wife of Symon 
Barnard; son George Warren; son Robert Warren, deceased; 
son Thomas Warren and son-in-law Simon Barnard, executors. 
(Arch. Suff. Ipswich, Original Wills [1645], 120.)* 

There appears to have been two families at Southwold, one of 
Thomas Warren, Bailiff in 1614, '20, '27, '33 and '38, and the other 
of Thomas Warne, who was buried 23 Jan., 1637. 

Some of the Warne entries below were probably intended for 
Warren and written Warin. 

"1602, June 7, Mary, dau. of Thos. & Mary Warne, baptized." 

Mary, wife of Rev. John Youngs, of whose marriage dates we 
have no record, calls John Youngs her ''last husband." She d. 
after 5 Nov., 1678, on Long Island, N. Y.f 

"1604, May 23, Elizabeth, dau. of Thomas & Mary Warne, 
baptized." 

"Elisabeth Warren m. Thomas Gooch 20 June, 1620," and had 
children christened: "Thomas Gooch, 6 May, 1621," and "John 
Gooch, 27 Oct., 1623." 

Thomas Gooch, Sr., Thomas, Jr., John Gooch & others re- 
fused to take the oaths & superscriptions in 1662, & were dis- 
charged from, being four & twenties.

161T, Nov. II, Christian, d. of Thomas Warren, baptized. We 
have not the date of her marriage to Simon Barnard. 

Christian was a favorite name in the Youngs family on Long 
Island. It was used at Southwold by the Jentlemans as well as 
by the Warrens. 

16 13, March 2, George, son of Thos. Waryn, baptized. 

In 1662, Mr. George Warren, one of the Bailiffs, desiring time 
to consider the oaths & superscriptions imposed by Acts of 
Parliament, etc., is ordered to be discharged from being Bailiff,

^^IZ, Jan. 20, marriage license granted to Thomas Warren & 
Ann Noaks of St. Matthew's (Ipswich?). 

The marriage license of Thomas Warren & Judith Fisher of 
St. Clernent's, Ipswich, was dated 3 July, 1634. 

Possibly Thomas Warren, the Southwold merchant, who d. in 
1644, and John Warren, who m. Alice Keble in 16 19, were 
brothers, and sons of George Warren who was buried at South- 
wold, 14 Dec, 1614. 

The Warren family furnished Bailiffs for Southwold Borough 
at intervals from 1614-1662. According to the Parish Register 
there, they seem to have resided in that town from 1611-1705. 

In this connection it is gratifying to learn that the title deeds 
of the Southwold Vicarage, at Queen Anne's Bounty Office in 
London, show that the property, including a mansion and 
enclosed piece of land, was sold in 1705, by the late widow of 
of John Warren to John Thompson, whose heirs, lineal and 
collateral, and others held it till 1829, when it was sold to the 
Governors of Queen Anne's Bounty, and is now held by them in 
trust for a Vicarage. 

The " mansion " of the title deeds was built on the foundations 
of an older house, in which are the cellars of the existing house. 

There are two deeds, with the signatures of Mrs. Hannah 
Knowles, formerly widow of John Warren, of Hannah Bohm, and 
of Mary and Elizabeth Warren. The seals against the last two 
names, are distinctive, and the same in both documents. 

Warren, as a family name, comes from Normandy, whence 
William de Warrenne came with William the Conqueror, and 
whose daughter, Gundreda, he afterwards married. He was 
greatly esteemed and trusted by his royal father-in-law.* 

Burke's General Armory mentions 45 armorial families of 
Warren, 2 of Warreyn and 2 of Warryn, and the particular one to 
which Thomas Warren above, of Southwold, belonged is much 
to be desired.

bap. Jan. 12, 1757; m. Zaccheus Cook, Jr., Middle Haddam, Conn., 
Jan. 18, 1776, probably of the family of Henry of Mass., who had 
three children who removed to Conn. John settled in Middle- 
town, Henry and Samuel in Wallingford, Conn. His father d. 
April 19, 181 2, aet. 93, therefore b. about 1719, probably at East- 
ham, Mass. He signed a petition to Conn. Legislature, 1744,

about the church at East Hampton. Zaccheus Cook, Jr., was 
administrator on the estate of {^i) Benjamin Green' Goff, and 
acted Sept., 1782, in the administration. He and his family re- 
moved to N. Y. State, I have not the town. 

7^1. Benjamin* Green Goff (Desire* Green, Warren,' William,' 
William'), bap. Oct. 9, 1757. He v/as a soldier in Capt. Holmes 
Company of Col. Samuel Selden's Regiment, and private First 
Regt. Continentals from East Haddam, April 22, 1777, to April 

22, 1780, when he was discharged. The history of Wethersfield 
says: he was killed June 24, i7''8i. He was then in the militia.* 

34. Timothy ' Goff (Desire* Green, Warren,' William," William'), 
bap. July 27, 1760. Went into the service in Lieut. David Smith's 
Company, Col. Thomas Belden's Regiment, April and May, 1777, 
served at Peekskill, N. Y. There was a Timothy Goff of East- 
hampton. Conn., m. Eveline, dau. of Elihu and Almyra (Wright) 
Cook, but I have not been able to identify him. 

35. Philip' Goff (Desire* Green, Warren,' William,' William'), 
b. Aug. 17, 1766; bap. June 2, 1767; m. Oct. 19, 1787, Chloe Cole, 
dau. o^^f Marcus and Phebe (Scovill) Cole; he was the eldest child 
of Ebenezer and Elizabeth Cole, who removed from Eastham, 
Mass., to Chatham, Conn., 1748, and d. 1752. Elizabeth Cole d. 
Feb. 19, 1794, aged 85. Ebenezer and Elizabeth had: i. Marcus; 
ii. Ebenezer; iii. Elizabeth; iv. Jerusha Cole. Philip Goff d. Oct. 

23, 1823. Marcus Cole was in the French War, and in the Con- 
tinental service, May, 1775, to Feb., 1778, when he was lieutenant 
in Huntington's Regiment of the line. Marcus and Phebe Cole 
had: i. Abner, b. 1754; m. Lydia Freeman, 1785; ii. Hqndrick, m. 
Phebe Griffith; iii. Marcus, m. Sally White; iv. Phebe, m. Thomas 
Ackley; v. Reliance, m. Joseph Knowlton; vi. Chloe, m. Philip 
Goff; vii. Rebecca, m. Isaac Johnson; viii. Mary, m. Benjamin 
Leonard. "" 

The U. S. census of 1790, under Chatham gives Philip Goff's 
family as consisting of two males over sixteen and one female; 
and Philip Goff, Jr., had in family one male over sixteen and two 
females. It would seem these were Philip, who m. Desire, and 
his son, Philip, Jr., who m. Chloe Cole.f 

Philip and Chloe (Cole) Goff united with the church at Middle 
Haddam, July 18, 1790. This family removed from the neighbor- 
hood probably at the same time as Philip and Desire (Green) 
Goff, before 1800. Among my notes about Chloe Cole, I find 

* There was a Benjamin Goff of Easthampton, m. Feb, 5. 1786, Abigail 
Brainard; they removed to Middle Haddam. They had: i. Benjamin, d. inf. 
ii. Niel, never m, iii. Phila, m. John Cole, and other children. The absence of 
the initial of the middle name makes me doubt the identity. 

t Mr. H. B. Brainerd says: Philip Goff was b. about 1730, perhaps earlier; 
he was bap. at Middle Haddam, March 24, 1742, his grandfather, Philip (b. 1685), 
being alive, for his father is called Philip Goff, Jr. In records of Rev. John 
Norton, East Hampton, appears Philip Goff, d. Oct. 27, 1779, and Philip Goff's 
wife d. April 22, 1767. The first is the father-in-law of Desire; the latter is 
possibly Sarah (Atwell) Goff, his wife, tho' that is not certain.

changes m some of the tenants of the building, and as Chairman of the Building 
Committee, reported that owing to the fact that only §3,900.00 was available in

value of the new property would be about $2,750.00, and the total estimated cost 
of maintenance and interest would be $4,012.32, acquiring the adjoining 
premises would result in an annual deficit of $1,262.32, which would have to be 
met by the Society, It was accordingly the unanimous opinion of the Com- 
mittee that no steps be taken to acquire the adjoining premises until 
the available cash assets be increased to $20,000.00. He further read a letter

i9o8.] Obituary. 223 

The question of the present securities, consisting of bonds and stocks, being 
proper investments for the funds of the Society being discussed, it was the 
unanimous opinion of the Trustees present that such investments were proper 
and legal under the Charter of the Society, inasmuch as the sums invested 
were not specifically donated or acquired as guardianship or testamentary 
trust funds. 

The Chairman of the Executive Committee then reported certain alterations 
and improvements to the building, and certain negotiations with prospective

QUERIES. 

Maris. — Among the first settlers of Hudson and Bergen Cos., N. J., 
appears the name of Jury Maris— a« Englishman. Jury Maris also owned

Cornelius Haring and Barent Nonel (both of Tappan), executors of the will of 
John Hart of Woodbridge, N. J., to examine said will. On church records of 
Hackensack, N, J., and of Tappan, N. Y., are the baptisms of the children of 
Jurian Maris and Freda Hause Harty (she bap. N. Y., 26 Aug., 1671). Can 
any one give parentage of above Jury (Jurie, Jurran, Jurian) Maris? His

BOOK NOTICES. 



The Anti-Rent War, by Albert Chapman Mayham. Cloth, Small 
Quarto, pp. 89. Press of Frederick L. Frazee, Jefferson, N. Y. 1906. 

The attempt of Stephen Van Rensselaer to eject certain tenants in the 
Townships of Bern, Westerlo and Renneslaerville, Albany County, N. Y., and 
on " Blenheim Hill " from the lands owned by Patroon Van Rensselaer, because 
of non-payment of rent is the theme of this small book. The author tells the 
story of the anti-rent agitation of 1839-1846 in a clear, conversational style, 
which makes pleasant, as well as instructive reading. How the trouble of 
John A. King of Jamaica, Long Island, with his farm tenants on Blenheim 
Hill arose, and how they were settled has been hitherto almost an unknown 
chapter in the land history of the State of New York, and the author is to 
be heartily congratulated in placing the facts and persons engaged in this 
mimic war so vividly before the reading public. Clear type and excellent

wood-cut illustrations make the work attractive and a desirable acquisition to 
both large and small libraries. 

The Ancestors of Abner Brush and Laura (Hubbard) Brush, 
by Mrs. Chauncey H. Brush. Boards, i2mo, pp. 58. Privately printed. 1908. 

This small brochure traces the descendants of Thomas Brush of Hunting- 
ton, Long Island, N. Y., who owned a lot at Southold prior to 1653, and gives in 
narrative forms the genealogical details of their family history. It is more of a 
memorandum than a genealogy, but it is interesting reading and the notes are 
of value. The idea of tracing out and describing the several family bibles is 
excellent and worthy of being followed in more pretentious works. 

The Clark Family Genealogy, by Dr. A. W. Clark. Cloth, Svo, pp. 
149. Press of The Mirror-Recorder, Stamford, N. Y. 1907. 

While this work purports to be a comprehensive genealogy of the Clark 
Family in the United States, it is practically only a record of the descendants 
of Randall and Dorothy (Tucker) Clark and Hazard and Eunice (Clark) Clark, 
carried out in the female as well as the male lines. A mass of disconnected data 
is included in the work, much of which has little or no reference to the families 
of Clark traced out. The compiler appears to have levied tribute upon various 
standard Clark Genealogies already published, without giving the authors any 
credit or notice for the extracts. Notably pages 72 and 78 are taken verbatim 
from The Clarke Families of Rhode Island, the standard work on this Rhode 
Island family^which unfortunately was not copyrighted. This abstracted 
material Dr. Clark has actually copyrighted in his book as if it was from 
original research — 'tho it is the usual courteous custom iu such cases to 
acknowledge the source of such wholesale extracts. 

There are a number of errors and inaccuracies in the data — notably the 
descent of Timothy Clark, b. 29 March, 1719, stated on p. 13 to be a son of 
Timothy and Sarah (Richardson) Clark of Stonington, Conn., 'tho actually a 
son of John and Lydia (Andrews) Clarke of Stonington, who is assumed to be a 
son of Timothy and Sarah (Robbins) Clark of Bristol and Stonington, Conn., as 
the compiler admits in his introduction on p. 5. There is not the slightest 
proof that this Timothy Clark was in any way related to the great Clark 
family of Westhorpe, Co. Suffolk, England, which by the by Dr. Clark states 
came from Bedfordshire — an error which he found and copied from Austin's 
Rhode Island Dictionary — and which Austin some time past acknowledged to 
be a mistake. 

The compiler frankly admits the basis for this work in the introduction, 
and the authority of the sources of his record may well be questioned by skilled 
and accurate genealogists. 

The book appears to be a loose compilation of Clark facts and records 
already printed in other works, gathered from examination of printed works in 
libraries and historical societies rather than from the original records, and 
taken without acknowledgment or reference to the authors. Its utility will be 
confined to the recent generations of the particular branches of the Clark 
Family dealt with, viz.: that of Blenheim Hill, who hold an annual reunion and 
desire to see their names in print. The work is well printed and illustrated 
with wood cuts, but the index is not exhaustive.

AND Unversaw, by W. F. Cooper. Paper, Svo, pp. 16. 1906. Privately 
printed. 

This small pamphlet is merely a convenient statement of the data gathered 
concerning the families set forth above. It is arranged alphabetically and not 
chronologically and hence will not be easy to consult save by those members 
of the Cooper family who know their own descent. It is evidently the intention 
of its author to elaborate and place in final genealogical form the ya uable 
information here collected, but for the present the utility of the material pub- 
lished will be confined to a small and special circle. The line commences

Perry, Pierce and Taylor, by Miss Aurelia Anna Pierce Ballou and W. 
F. Cooper. Paper, 8vo, pp. 31. No index. Press of State Printers, Lansing, 
Mich. IQ08. 

The object of this pamphlet is to give those of the name interested an early 
opportunity of using the material therein digested and to arouse interest and 
bring forth further information on the subject in hand. Edward Dobyns, born 
England on December 7th, 1747, was the first immigrant to settle in Culpeper 
Co., Virginia, prior to the Revolutionary War. His numerous descendents are 
set forth, with brief biographical sketches of the more prominent members of 
the family and many useful genealogical facts are collected for future reference. 
The spirit which prompted the compilers to record their family history is to be 
commended and every effort of this kind will render the task of future 
genealogists not only more easy but more accurate. 

The Elgin Botanic Garden, its later history and relation to Columbia 
College, The New Hampshire Grants and The Treaty with Vermont in 1790, by 
Addison Brown, A.B., LL.B., LL.D. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 57. Full Index. Press of 
The New Era Printing Co., Lancaster, Pa. iqoB. 

The fact that Dr. Alexander Hosack in iBoi purchased land opposite the 
present Cathedral at Fifth Avenue and Fiftieth Street, developed it into a 
garden called the Elgin Botanical Garden, which he subsequently sold to the 
State in 1811, is little known even to many who pride themselves of their 
knowledge of early New York History. The garden did not flourish and in 
1814, when Columbia College obtained the grant of lands embracing this small 
botanical experiment, it was suffered to go to ruin and decay. Owing to some 
doubt as to the intent of the Legislature in conveying the ground occupied by 
the garden to Columbia College, Judge Brown prepared this little sketch, 
clearly proving that the grant to Columbia was not made in compensation for 
her land claims in Vermont or for any loss or injury to the College through the 
treaty of 1790, 

The sketch shows much research, and the subject is happily treated by its 
author, who has brought a clear and judicial mind upon what has always been 
a somewhat obscure point of State history. 

While the book has more historical than genealogical value, it contains a 
brief but admirable biography of Dr. Hosack and many items useful to 
searchers for the annals of some of the early New York families. 

Major William Ferguson, by Charles Beatty Alexander, LL.D. Cloth, 
Svo, pp. 70. Limited edition. The Trow Press, New York. 1908. 

This is a brief memorial of Major William Ferguson, born in Armagh, 
Ireland, son of Usher and Mary Ferguson, member of the American Philo- 
sophical Society, and officer in the army of the Revolution and in the army of 
the United States, and deals with his military career during the War of the 
Revolution and a subsequent campaign against the Indians, in which he met 
his death. The facts of his life as gathered from his letters and other memor- 
anda are tersely set forth and make a valued record of one of the early 
patriots, who laid down his life for the privileges of freedom and the land of 
his adoption. 

The little book is beautifully printed in large type on Italian hand-made 
paper and is a worthy tribute by a descendant to the valor and virtue of his 
ancestor. 

Jenkins Family Book, being a partial record of the descendants of 
David Jenkins and notes of families intermarried with them, by Robert E. 
Jenkins of the Chicago Bar. 1904. Cloth, small 8vo, pp. 213. Privately 
printed. No Index. 



I908.] Book Notices. 22 7 

The compiler of this little book frankly states that he considers the tracing 
out of his maternal Imes of quite as much importance as those on the paternal 
side and devotes much space to the maternal ancestry of Robert Jenkins of 
Clark Co. Missouri, the Ancestors of Maria (Raymond) Jenkins, the Masters 
Memoranda, and the Logan Memoranda. It is presumed that these allied 
families have never before been genealogically traced. David Jenkins came 
from Wales before 1700 and settled in the Great Valley of Chester Co.. Pa., where 
comparatively little is known of him, but he left a sturdy line of children who 
have carried the name down to the present time. The book is not arranged 
according to genealogical standards, nor is it indexed, but has been compiled 
evidently from a desire to place in available printed form such facts as are 
known to its author and thus give a working medium for the future family 
historians. Any record is better than none and apart from the special interest 
to those appearing in its pages, the value of this book lies in its straightfoward 
statement of the family line and branches. 

The Family of Leete, by Joseph Leete, Chevalier de La Legion 
D'Honneur, South Norwood, Surrey, in conjunction with John Corbet Anderson. 
Crushed Levant, Quarto, pp.211. Second Edition. Revised and Enlarged. 
Press of Blades, East & Blades, London. igo6. 

This beautiful volume contains the genealogical cronicle of the English 
family of Leete. whose ancestor was John Leete of Eversden, Co. Cambridge, 
and also incidently records a number of other Leete families, notably of 
Oakington, Co. Cambridge, of Governor William Leete of Guilford. Conn., the 
American branch, of the Irish branch, of Nicholas Leate, Alderman of London, 
and of the De Lettes of France. The author seems to have made an ex- 
haustive search in the English Counties for records of all bearing his name 
from the earliest time and with a view to making a lasting memorial of his 
ancestry, has arranged and printed this great collection, with numerous 
pedigree charts and illustrations of ancient Mss. and places and persons of note. 
Undeterred by the great cost of such a search he has spared no expense in the 
publication, and the beauty of the paper, press work, type, illustrations and 
binding, would be difficult to surpass. 

An honest pride in an ancient and honorable lineage has been stimulated by 
a praiseworthy desire to give to all of this name the results of many years' 
research, and the spirit which prompted so generous an action cannot be too 
heartily commended. The volume is unique not only as a family record but as 
an artistic publication, and those libraries or societies possessing copies of this 
valuable work are to be congratulated. Mr. Leete should feel assured of the 
thanks and appreciation of all future generations claiming descent from this 
English country family. 

Lyon Memorial: Families of Connecticut and New Jersey, including 
records of the descendants of the immigrants Richard and Henry Lyon of 
Fairfield, Conn., with a sketch of "Lyons Farms" by S. R. Winans, Jr. Illus- 
trated with maps and fully indexed. Edited by Sidney Elizabeth Lyon. 
Louise Lyon Johnson and A. B. Lyons, M.D. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 453. Press of 
William Graham Printing Co., Detroit, Mich. 1907, 

The above book forms publication No. II, of the Lyon Genealogies, and in 
it is suggested the theory that the progenitors of these early New England 
Lyons were of the Scotch blood and related to the present family of Bowes- 
Lyon. The impression of an ancient seal of the lion rampaTft in a lozenge on 
the will of Samuel Winans of Elizabeth, N. J., dated 13 June. 1744, goes far 
toward establishing the above theory of descent, as the testator was a brother- 
in-law of Ebenezer Lyon of Lyons Farms. The idea and character of these 
Lyon compilations is excellent and in view of the destruction of many of the 
early records, perhaps the only accurate method of tracing a particular 
genealogy is to hunt out all early Colonial families of the name and trace them 
down to present time. Such material, well digested and indexed, may enable 
many families and descendants to link up their lines who otherwise would be 
groping in the dark and unable to avail themselves of records not only

unknown to them, but inaccessible because of distance. The Memorial is a 
valuable contribution to the genealogical shelves of libraries and historical 
societies, and reflects high credit upon its editors. 

)^' Lyon Memorial: New York Families. Edited by Robert B. Miller 
and A. B. Lyons, M.D. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 539. Fully indexed. Press of William 
Graham Printing Co., Detroit, Mich. 1907. 

This volume forms one of a series of contemplated publications tracing all 
available records and information concerning the several Lyon families 
established in New England prior to 1650. The original prospectus con- 
templated only a single volume but the immense mass of data discovered 
soon extended the work into three sections, viz.: L The Descendants of William 
Lyon of Roxbury, Mass., and of Peter and George Lyon of Dorchester, Mass. 
n. The Descendants of Richard and Henry Lyon of Fairfield, Conn. IIL 
The present book, which traces those descendants of Thomas Lyon of Rye, 
once of Fairfield, Conn., who form the allied New York families of the name. 
The work is supplemented by an introduction by Dr. G. W. A. Lyon on the 
English Lyon families and illustrated with maps and facsimile reproductions 
of interesting ancient manuscripts. 

Thomas Lyon of Rye married a granddaughter of Gov. John Winthrop of 
Salem, Mass., and left a number of interesting letters addressed to his Winthrop 
relatives, all of which have fortunately been preserved by that family. The 
style of composition and handwriting of these ancient letters indicates their 
writer to have been a man of education and gentle birth, and while the modesty 
of the compilers of this record, in not claiming coat-armour and descent from 
titled forebears is to be commended, there is every reason to believe that these 
Lyon colonists were of ancient and honorable lineage. 

The book has been compiled and printed in a direct, workmanlike manner, 
without useless digressions upon or assumptions of any vague family traditions 
and will be hailed as the authoritative work on this family. 

The New York of Yesterday. A descriptive Narrative of Old Bloom- 
ingdale, by Hopper Striker Mott, with 78 illustrations, diagrams and maps. 
Fully indexed. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 597. Limited edition of 500 copies. Published 
by G. P. Putnam's Sons. The Knickerbocker Press, New York. 1908. 

This fine publication had for its primary object the perpetuation of the 
History of The Bloomingdale Reformed Church, organized 1805, and incorpor- 
ated 1806 as the Church at Harsenville, but fortunately the author was 
impelled to extend the work to a general historical and genealogical descrip- 
tion of the entire district — a section of Manhattan Island but little mentioned 
in the many works descriptive of the growth of the great City of New York. 

The book is divided into chapters respectively dealing with Bloomingdale, 
its boundaries, families, farms and landmarks, as well as its war history. 
Harsenville, and the Harsen Family; the First Consistory of the Church and 
the subsequent development of that house of religious worship; the Old 
Time Families; Reminiscences, Vital Statistics, being the registrar of Mar- 
riages and Baptisms, with exhaustive Indices; Appendices, containing tran- 
scripts of important documents, facsimile signatures, etc. 

An immense amount of time, patience and labor must have been expended 
not only in collecting the material for this work but in digesting and arranging 
it. The author has shown a keen critical sense and a nice discrimination in 
utilizing many facts of minor importance to bring into greater prominence the 
vital annals of the district and the arrangement and narration of the data con- 
cerning the old time Bloomingdale families, shows him to possess not only 
sound genealogical methods, but a happy style of narration as rare as it is 
desirable in works of this character. Apart from the natural interest of his 
facts, the author has made a book of agreeable and easy reading, one that 
disguises dry historical data under a fluent descriptive style — and with the 
exception of the bare church vital records there is not a dull page in all the vol- 
ume. The illustrations are wonderfully good, not only in subject and selection 
but as wood-cut reproductions, and evidence an exacting taste. The book is 
beautifully printed in large type with ample margins and the style of composition 



*9o8.] Book Notices. 220 

and arrangement leaves nothing to be desired. As a graceful tribute to its 
subject It IS bound in blue, white and orange, the Dutch colors. This ex- 
haustive work IS worthy to grace the shelves of every public and private 
library ot prominence m this country, and from the standpoint of a work of 
reference no library, that contains an historical department, should be without 
the book. 

Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Family 
History of New York, by William S. Pelletreau, A.M. Cloth, 8vo, 4 Vols., 
pp. 1479- Illustrated. The Lewis Publishing Co., New York. 1907. 

The idea of publishing a work dealing with the genealogical history of the 
early settlers of the City of New York and their descendants is praiseworthy 
and such a collection, if properly selected and correctly set down would have 
filled a long felt want. Unfortunately the author falls short of the standard 
such a book exacts and whether from commercial necessity or lack of nice 
discrimination, has filled up the pages with uninteresting annals of unimportant 
families. In a number of cases the ancestor described has been foreign born 
and only lived in this city a comparatively few years, and his influence in 
advancing the renown of the Empire City might be measured by his subscrip- 
tion to a work publishing his name and portrait. 

In the last ten years a number of publications of this character have been 
exploited and their utility, accuracy and value are open to grave doubt. 
Biographies of the unimportant and genealogies of the uninteresting are 
becoming a drug on the library shelves, and the time is rapidly approaching 
when the leading historical and genealogical societies must exercise a judicious 
selection in accepting new works of this character. The books are well 
indexed and clearly printed but the glazed lead paper makes them heavy and 
unwieldly and the binding is bad. The entire publication — both as to the 
quality and quantity of its subject-matter, letter-press, style and illustrations is 
commercial and cheap. 

A Porter Pedigree, being an account of the ancestry and descendants 
of Samuel and Martha (Perley) Porter of Chester, N. H., who were descendants 
of John Porter of Salem, Mass., and Allan Perley of Ipswich, Mass. Compiled 
by Miss Juliet Porter, Worcester, Mass. 1907. Paper, 8vo, pp. 161. Indexed. 
Privately printed. 

The compiler states that this volume is only the fore-runner of a more com- 
plete genealogy and has been printed to call forth further data and to ascertain 
whether the family interest is such as will warrant a publication in more per- 
manent form. The work of collecting the records has been carefullly done and 




Foster, comparatively small space has been alloted to each line, but a mass of 
valuable data has been printed and it is hoped that the compiler will receive 
substantial encouragement to continue hei- work. The book is printed in large, 
distinct type, but the numerical arrangement of names is not standard and will 
only be clear to the compiler. It is strange that family historians cling to an 
individual numerical arrangement. Doubtless it is a method saving of labor, 
but one of small value to the general searcher, and seriously handicaps a book 
intended for general circulation. 

The Continental Congress at Princeton, by Varnum Lansing Col- 
lins. With a Portrait of General Washington, engraved by Sidney L. Smith. 
Cloth, 8vo, pp. 295. Full index. The University Library, Princeton, N. J. 1908. 

The thanks of all the students of American history are due to the Princeton 
Historical Society for the publication of this scholarly work, dealing with im- 
portant and little known episodes of the Revolutionary War. The storv of the 
mutiny of the Pennsylvania Troops of the Line in June, 1783, the consequent 
flight of the Continental Congress from Philadelphia, and the five months 
sojourn of that body at Princeton, together with the description of congressional 
life in its official and unofficial sides in the little academic town makes delight- 



230 Book Notices. [July, 

ful reading. The author shows a keen appreciation of his subject, a nice 
discrimination in setting forth his facts in due order and a comprehensive 
grasp of the value and importance of his documentary data. The chapter de- 
scribing the great debate on the location of a permanent federal residence is of 
peculiar interest. The letter-press, paper and wood-cut illustrations are in 
excellent taste and the work is assured of a permanent place in the list of 
desirable Americana. 

PuRMORT Genealogy, by Rev. Charles H. Purmort, D.D. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 
148. Indexed. Press of The Homestead Co., Des Moines, la. 1907. 

This interesting work traces out nineteen generations— the first nine of 
which arc in England — of a family bearing an unusual name. The name is 
clearly of a French origin and doubtless was originally "Pour Morte" or "for 
death." The first immigrant in America was Philemon Portmort or Purmort, 
first teacher in 1635 of what is now known as the Boston Latin School. While 
the compiler must perforce assume that Joseph Purmort of New Castle, New 
Hampshire, whose descendants are fully compiled in the work, was a grandson 
of Philemon above, )et the ground of this presumption is almost as strong as if 
sustained by actual recorded data. The book represents years of research and 
reflects high credit upon its author, whose modesty in presenting this well- 
printed and illustrated work to students of genealogy is much to be com- 
mended. It is to be hoped that the book will bring forth much more data of 
value and that its author may be the one chosen to put a second edition into 
circulation. 

Vital Records of Rhode Island, Vol. XVII, Providence Phenix, 
Providence Patriot and Columbian Phenix— Marriages, A to R, by James N. 
Arnold. Cloth, Quarto, pp. 599. Press of Narragansett Historical Publishing 
Co., Providence, R. I. 1908. 

The new volume of this fine record of Rhode Island births, deaths aiid 
marriages, is fully up to the earlier publications of this series, not only in 
interest but in general style of press work and binding, and is admirably 
indexed as to names and localities. It covers the period 1802-1832, bridging 
over the period from Revolutionary to comparitively modern times and in- 
cluding the vital annals during the War of 1812. The patience, pertinacity and 
courage which Mr. Arnold has brought to his stupendous task arouses the 
greatest admiration, and as the work approaches its conclusion and wins a 
deserved financial success, no praise will be too great for this valuable genea- 
logical record. It is hoped that Mr. Arnold will be inclined to take up the 
ancient burial ground records as well as a Digest of all the Wills and Admini- 
strations in Rhode Island from the earliest date of settlement to 1850. This 
would complete and make perfect the genealogical history of Providence 
Plantations. 

History of Saint Mark's Church, New Britain, Conn., and its pre- 
decessor, Christ Church, Wethersfield and Berlin, by James Shepard. Cloth, 
8vo, pp. 707. Full Indices of Subjects and Persons. Press of the Tuttle, 
Morehouse & Taylor Co., New Britain, Conn. 1907. 

This work is an exhaustive history of two important Episcopal parishes 
in Connecticut, introduced by a comprehensive statement of church history in 
America and in the State of Connecticut. 

While the subjects of this work were not the largest or most important 
churches in Connecticut, yet their ministers were men of learning and repute, 
and among their congregations were those who have advanced the importance 
of the State of Connecticut and sustained her record of a God-fearing and ob- 
serving Commonwealth. Full records of baptisms, marriages and burials are 
printed in the pages and the biographies of the successive ministers show 
painstaking research and accuracy. 

The collection of facts for such a volume requires not only unlirnited 
patience, but a mind naturally bent toward historical research and nice skill in 
arranging and placing in narrative form data voluminious enough to daunt the 
most enthusiastic antiquarian. Mr. Shepard has admirably completed the task 



iQoS.] Accessions to the Library. 23 1 

and the memorial history does credit to its author and these early religious 
establishments. 

In spite of its bulk, the book is readily handled, and owing to its excellent 
type and quality of paper, and 42 fine illustrations, it deserves a place on the 
shelves of every important historical society. 

The Whitmore Genealogy. A record of the descendants of Francis 
Whitmore of Cambridge, Mass., 1625-1685, by Jessie Whitmore Patten Purdy. 
Cloth, 8vo, pp. 158. Indexed. Press of Pengelly & Broth, Reading, Pa. 1907. 

The foundation of this work was the Whitmore Genealogy, compiled by 
Hon. Williain H. Whitmore in 1855, and the present volume carries down the 
earlier compilation to date. It is confined almost exclusively to a strict genea- 
logical table of descent, with the few biographical facts tersely set forth, and forms 
a complete and concise family record of this branch of the name in America. 
The accuracy and arrangement of the facts shows patience and ability, and in 
style of press work, quality of paper and binding, the book will rank with the 
best productions of its kind. Essentially a genealogy, it should win a permanent 
place among kindred standard works. 

The Woolson-Fenno Ancestry, and Allied Lines with Bio- 
graphical Sketches, by Lula May (Fenno) Woolson and Charles Amasa 
Woolson of Springfield, Vt. Cloth, 8vo, pp. 143. Illustrated and Indexed. 
Privately printed. Press of T. R. Marvin & Son, Boston, Mass. IQ07. 

This work traces back the ancestors of the authors, paternal and maternal, 
to the original immigrants into the Colonies, some twenty-five heads of families 
each, and thus is of a specific rather than general value. It is admirably 
arranged and contains much biographical data of rare interest but is in no 
sense a complete Woolson or Fenno genealogy. As a record of lineal descent 
from some fifty ancestors, the book merits the support and approval of the 
present representative family, and the authors have acquitted themselves well 
in tracing their intricate pedigree back to original sources. It may be said that 
too little importance has been made of collecting the annals of ancestral every 
day life— many genealogists confining themselves to a bald table of descent 
and accurate but meagre pedigrees. The authors of this work, however, have 
collected all possible material concerning each ancestor, and the result is a 
happy improvement on many works of this character. The book is beauti- 
fully printed on fine paper and makes a handsome volume.

GROVER CLEVELAND, 



By Lyman Abbott. 



A biography of Grover Cleveland will not be expected by the 
readers of the Record. Such a biography would involve an ac- 
count of at least four important episodes in our National history, 
and an adequate account of either one of these would be impos- 
sible within the limits of a magazine article. This is rather an 
appreciation than a biography, and is written by one who might 
probably designate himself by the once familiar phrase of a 
Cleveland Republican. For from my first boyish activities in the 
Fremont campaign I had been until 1882 a persistent though 
sometimes a disgrunted Republican. Like many other Republi- 
cans I was opposed to the reconstruction policies of the Radicals; 
to the partnership between the Federal Government and the rail- 
ways which resulted in the Credit Mobilier scandals; to the de- 
velopment of the doctrine of protection into a species of bargam- 
ing legislation favorable to special interests; to the corrupt doc- 
trine " To the victor belongs the spoils" unsuccessfully concealed 
by defenses that were not even plausible. The administration of 
President Arthur, though better than was expected, seemed to 
me and to others a politician's administration. And when a fac- 
tional fight in the Republican party in New York State,— a fight 
not between opposing principles but between opposmg spoils- 
men—issued in 1882 in the nomination of good men by nefarious 
means, I welcomed the nomination of Grover Cleveland by the 
Democratic party as an opportunity to rebuke and resist pernic- 
ious tendencies within the party with which I had affibated ever 
since my first vote in i860 for Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Cleveland 
was elected by a majority of upwards of 150,000 votes over all 
other candidates; not because he was a Democrat, but because 
he was Grover Cleveland, and by his administration of the Mayor- 
alty in Buffalo had illustrated the policy which he after\vards in- 
terpreted in the now well-known phrase "A public office is a 
public trust " The doctrine has never been more happily phrased.

238 Grover Cleveland. [Oct., 

and by no man in public office since George Washington's time 
had it been more consistently and courageously illustrated. 

This administration of the State compelled a reluctant Demo- 
cratic machine to nominate him for the Presidency in 1884 against 
James G. Blaine, the plumed knight of the Republican party. I 
do not here raise the hotly disputed question concerning Mr. 
James G. Blaine, who was at once the most admired and the most 
contemned statesman of his era. But I was among those who 
regarded his nomination as a victory of the corrupt elements in 
the Republican party, and followed Henry Ward Beecher out of 
the Republican ranks, though not into the Democratic ranks. 
Mr. Cleveland was elected in that campaign of 1884 by the votes 
of men one of whom aptly described himself as an independent 
in municipal politics, a Republican in State politics, and a Dem- 
ocrat in National politics. 

There are times when all questions of policy take a second 
place, overshadowed by the struggle of the humbler, less brilliant, 
but most essential virtues to assert themselves. Such was the 
period in American polictics from 1882 to 1892. Mr. Cleveland 
stood for the virtues of truthfulness in promise and profession, 
honesty in administration, and economy in public business. The 
two characteristic American admirations — that for brilliance 
in speech and action and that for rugged honesty in both, — were 
appealed to by the Presidential conflict of 1884, and the enthus- 
iasm for honesty won. Mr. Cleveland's administration was not 
brilliant, bift it was honest. It may not have been the adminis- 
tration of a great statesman — on that question opinions may dif- 
fer; but it certainly was not the administration of a wily poli- 
tician — on that question opinions will not differ. It was a business 
man's administration and it appealed to the business men of the 
Nation by its integrity, its sanity, and its business conservatism. 
Perhaps his most distinguished service to the Nation, it was cer- 
tainly his first, was his practical adoption of what had before been 
a much praised and little practised theory, the merit system ap- 
plied to public appointments. He added 30,000 posts to the Civil 
Service list, making a total number of competitive places of 
86,000. Others had preceded him in elucidating the theory, but 
he was the first to reduce the theory to practice; and though the 
country has since carried the principle still further, it has never 
receded from the standard he set. 

It was characteristic of Mr. Cleveland to mean what he said 
and to say what he meant. He had been elected in 1884 upon a 
platform which pledged the party to tariff reform. The tariff 
was not reformed. And in the Fall of 1887 he threw down a 
challenge to the special interests in a message which pledged him 
and so pledged the party if it re-nominated him, to a tariff for 
revenue only. This message was criticised at the time as impol- 
itic. Perhaps it was. The Democratic party lost the election, 
probably in consequence of that message. But he did not lose 
the respect of his countrymen, and in the next succeeding cam- 
paign, that of 1892, he was elected on the issue which he had so 
clearly raised. The Wilson bill, as introduced into the House,

certain special interests, it was neither a consistent revenue nor 
a consistent protective measure. That Mr. Cleveland allowed it 

fn ^T^^ % fiT' ^^'^''^}'' '"^^t^^^t ^^^ approval, has always seemed 
I^,-?fw .u^ ^^^ ""''^^^^^ °^ ^^^ P°^itical life; though it is to be 
said that other issues, of more immediate and pressing importance 
had meantime arisen to justify Mr. Cleveland's reluctance to en- 
gage in a tariflf controversy with Congress. However that may 
be, the Democratic party has never recovered from the injury in- 
flicted on It by the refusal of the Democratic Senators to carry 
out in good faith the policy to which the Democratic platform 
pledged the party. Sixteen years have passed and Senator Gor- 
man IS dead; and still Independents like myself, who ardently 
desire a tariff for revenue only, while we have little hope of rad- 
ical tariff revision from the Republican party, have even less 
from the politicians who gave the country the mongrel legislation 
known as the Wilson-Gorman bill. 

There is no space here to discuss the perplexing currency 
problem which confronted President Cleveland's second terra, 
and agitated it so fiercely in the campaign which immediatelv 
followed. It is difficult even to state the problem so that readers 
of different political opinions will understand it alike. There 
were many in the country who believed with President Walker 
of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, that by an Inter- 
national Agreement a parity of values could be maintained be- 
tween gold and silver, that in this way both could be made a 
common standard of values, and that such a common standard 
would result in less fluctuation of values than would result from 
any single standard, whether gold or silver. When it was found 
impossible to secure such an International Standard, a natural 
division arose among those who believed in International bi- 
metallism, some urging a gold standard, some an attempt to 
secure such parity of value by National legislation alone. Those 
of us who believe, as I do, that National bimetallism would have 
been bimetallism only in name, that it would really have meant 
for the United States silver monometallism, and that it would 
have inflicted untold disaster upon the country, and especially 
upon the agricultural and laboring classes, must ever recognize 
the indebtedness of the Nation to Mr. Cleveland for the rugged 
defiance with which he faced popular clamor, both within and 
without his party, in his belief that a gold standard was the only 
honest standard. Even those who do not agree with him in that 
opinion, and were most bitterly hostile to him at the time, have, 
almost without exception, come to recognize the purity of his 
motives and the courage of his political action. 

With the exception of Mr. Debs and his associates, the 
leader of the strikes then, the leader of the Socialist party now, 
the country has come also to recognize and approve the courage 
of his course in dealing with the famous Pullman strike in 
the summer of 1894. At that time the issue was somewhat 
confused. The irritating injustice of the Pullman Company, 



240 Grover Cleveland. [Oct., 

which laid all the burden of the hard times on the wage earners 
and none of it on either the stockholders or the higher salaried 
officials, created a sympathy for the strikers, which their boycott 
of perfectly innocent parties, and their acts of lawless and inex- 
cusable violence, turned to sympathy against them, so that the 
general public had little inclination to side with either the Pull- 
man Company or the strikers. But what I wrote in 1894 I may 
here repeat as an expression of the public sentiment outside the 
immediate battle field: " Rioting is not so dangerous to American 
civilization as compromising with rioters. * * * The battle 
field is not the place to debate delicate questions of rank and pre- 
cedence; and we are in the midst of a battle. It is a time for 
men of all parties to sustain the President in using all the power 
which his law officers affirm that he possesses in enforcing law 
and punishing crime." It was much easier to write these lines 
than to act upon this principle. Mr. Cleveland in acting upon 
this principle, and in using the power of the Federal Government 
to put down mob violence, enforce law, restore order, and protect 
persons and property, in spite of the indifference, not to say the 
opposition, of both the city and the State authorities, rendered a 
service in checking the rising spirit of lawlessness in this coun- 
try which the country hardly appreciates even yet. It may be 
added that it is doubtful whether even Mr. Roosevelt, Republican 
as he is, has done more to commend to the people of the United 
States the doctrine of the New Federalism — the doctrine that all 
the power which the Federal government possesses is to be em- 
ployed whenever it is necessary to conserve those interests which 
are common to all the people of the Nation — than Mr. Cleveland, 
Democrat as he was, did in using the Federal powers to protect 
the United States mail and Interstate Commerce from the 
violence of local mobs. 

All men have the defects of their qualities. If the diplomatic 
temperament leads its possessor at times to blur the line which 
separates tactful from untrue utterances, the honest temperament 
sometimes leads its possessor to declare his purpose in language 
which is needlessly offensive. This was in my judgment the 
only defect, though the very serious defect, in Grover Cleveland's 
famous Venezuelan message. Whether this was due to Mr. 
Cleveland or to his Secretary of State, Mr. Richard Olney, history 
does not know — it can only guess. A long drawn out boundary 
dispute between Great Britain and the irritating State of Venez- 
uela threatened to issue in open war, and that in turn to result 
in bringing part of that Central American Republic under British 
sovereignty. That this would be in flat contravention of an 
American policy which Great Britain had been the first to recom- 
mend to us, but which is popularly known as the Monroe doctrine, 
is indubitable. It was wholly in accordance with our traditions 
to propose to Great Britain to arbitrate the question, and when 
she refused, to investigate the issues involved for ourselves that 
we might determine what course we would pursue. But it was 
neither courteous nor wise to announce beforehand that if Great 
Britain did not accept the results of such an investigation, the 



'9o8.] G rover Cleveland. 24 1 

United States would "resist by every means in its power, as a 
wilful aggressor upon its rights and interests, the appropriation 
of any lands or the exercise of any governmental jurisdiction 
over any territory which, after investigation, we have determined, 
of right, to belong to Venezuela." No doubt in this utterance 
Mr. Cleveland meant what he said, but it was a case in which it 
would have been better had he said less than he meant. That 
his message did not lead to a rupture of friendly relations be- 
tween the two countries, if not to open war between them, is due 
not to the wisdom of Mr. Cleveland's language, but to the self- 
restraint of the English government and the English people. 

Since his retirement from the Presidency and from active pol- 
itics in 1896, Mr. Cleveland has been widely known as America's 
most distinguished private citizen. His life has been quiet; his 
inclination has been to retirement; his public service has been 
mostly confined to occasional utterances, always in favor of the 
highest and best ideals in our National life. His interest in edu- 
cation was indicated by his active work and wise counsel as a 
Trustee of Princeton College; in the welfare of the common 
people by his consent to act as Trustee in the reorganization of 
the Equitable Life Assurance Society; in National affairs, by his 
willing co-operation with President Roosevelt in the latter's suc- 
cessful endeavor to save the country from the disastrous conse- 
quences which a continuance of the great coal strike of 1902 
would have inevitably brought upon the country. 

Mr. Cleveland was essentially a product of American Dem- 
ocracy. Like Abraham Lincoln, our greatest President, like 
Chief Justice Marshall, our greatest Judge, he had not a college 
education. He was what men call a " self-made " man. His only 
schooling was such as he received in a public school, as clerk in a 
village store, as assistant to his uncle in a brief piece of literary 
compilation, and subsequently as clerk in a law office. From 
1880, when he was elected Mayor of Buffalo, to 1892, when he 
was elected President of the United States, his political pro- 
motions were rapid and were never due to political chicanery nor 
to demagogic arts, but to popular appreciation of his character. 
But if he had not educational advantages, he had a good inherit- 
ance. From his English ancestry he derived, along with a lack of 
imagination, which was his most serious intellectual deficiency, an 
indomitable will, an aggressive honesty, a transparent truthful- 
ness, a courage that never quailed, and a habit of vigilant and 
tireless industry; qualities that constitute the best characteristics 
of English blood. If he was neither an astute politician nor a 
great statesman, he was an honest business man. Charged with 
the business affairs first of a City, then of a State, finally of a 
Nation, at a time when nothing was so much needed in order to 
expose crookedness in public life as an example of its opposite, 
that example Mr. Cleveland furnished without a taint of that 
self-conscious showing forth of virtue which is the essence of 
Pharisaism. His name is an honorable addition to the Annals of 
America and his life is an example and an inspiration to its young 
men.

THE HOPPE-HOPPEN-HOPPER LINEAGE. 



By Hopper Striker Mott. 



I. 

Long before the first of the name set foot upon New Nether- 
land's soil, this family was rich, prominent, powerful and, as a 
consequence, much respected at Amsterdam. Its history harks 
back to ancient times in Holland where the name was spelled 
both Hoppe and Hoppen, a custom the pioneer in this country 
continued. 

From Beschryvinge Va7i Amsterdam door Casparus Commelin, 
1 69 1, these data are derived: 

Jan Claesz van Hoppen was Schepen of Amsterdam in 1469, 
'74, '79. '81, '83, '88, Councillor of the City 1483, Burgomaster, 
1490, '91, and again Schepen 1494, '98, 1500, '02. Another Jan 
Claesz van Hoppen, doubtless his grandson, was Councillor of 
Amsterdam in 1549, Burgomaster the same year, Schepen 1554, 
again Burgomaster in 1560, '61, '64, '66, '67, '69, '71, '72, and 
Orphan Master in 1562, '63, '65, '68, '70, '73, in September of which 
latter year he died and was succeeded by Gerbrand Klaesz Ban- 
ning. On one of the windows of the Old Church at Amsterdam 
is written, as translated from Vol. I, p. 426: 

" This Church pane has been presented to the church by Jan 
Claasz van Hoppen, who has been Burgomaster, Schepen and 
Councillor of the City, who having been accused of being favor- 
able to the new religion and subsequently taxed with being a 
heretic, was, by his Confessor, as a punishment for his conver- 
sion, ordered to proceed to Rome and there to purge himself, 
where (apparently on account of letters by the clergy from here, 
they knowing that he was a rich man) he was condemned as a 
penance to present this window to the Church, which seems to 
make known what is written on a sheet over his head, floating 
from the Bishop's staff: 

Nemo Laeditur Nisi se ipso. 
Besides, he was condemned not to drink anything but water dur- 
ing an entire year, but on his trip hither from Rome the use of 
water became very irksome and he returned to Rome and re- 
quested the Pope, because the water in this country was unhealthy 
without having been boiled in hops, to be permitted to boil some 
hops in his drinking water, which (those in Italy not knowing 
this to be beer) was permitted him, thus having been able, owing 
to this use, to mitigate his penance." 

This pane of the Salutation of Maria was made by Dig- 
man. The Hoppe Coat-of-Arms is seen on this pane; he, Hoppen 
himself, lies buried in front of this pane, in the chancel of the 
Holy Virgin, as shown by a certain tombstone whereon the said 
Coat-of-Arms is also to be seen. 

At page 550 it is related: "On the day of the Visitation of 
Our Lady we are bound annually to give every patient in our 

18 



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

Hospital a clear white loaf of bread and a pint of wine which has 
been donated by Jan Claesz van Hoppen and Styn his wife. On 
the 13th of September we are bound, on account of Jan Claesz 
Hoppen, to give the patients a meal consisting of boiled meat 
and wine; and in case the same be fishday, then fish shall be 
served as is proper." 

Page 554: "Jan Klaesz van Hoppen was a regent of the 
Guesthouse or Hospital in 15 11. Jan van Hoppen was a regent 
of the above hospital in 1547-" 

•• But before commencing to preach, the Pastor Jan Aartsz pre- 
pared a Remonstrance to be delivered to the Burgomasters, as 
had been also done at Haerlem, which Jan Pietersz Reaal had 
delivered by a certain sailor, Pieter van Grieken, at the house of 
Jan Claasz van Hoppe, Burgomaster. But he refused to accept 
it, so that on July 30 the messenger had to deliver it at the City 
Hall, in the Little Tower." 

Page 992: "Aug. 26, 1566. The Resolution (concerning the 
people of the new religion or protestants) was published through- 
out the town by the sound of the trumpet, in the presence of the 
Burgomaster Jan Klaasz van Hoppen, of Adriaan Paauw, Arent 
Brouwer and Egbert Roeloffz." 

Page 1005, 1566, circa December. " When now the Colonel, in 
accordance with the Prince's [William the Silent] desire, retained 
the privileges accorded to the militia, everything turned out right 
and the militia men were invited to the house of the presiding 
Burgomaster Jan Claasz van Hoppe, who admonished them to 
observe harmony and to keep the above compact and rules. In 
the meantime the Prince took leave and departed via Haarlem 
for Antwerp. Since that time also the six chief Captains were 
not much troubled thereafter," 

Page 1014, April 5, 1567. " In accordance with the above priv- 
ileges the choice of delegate from among the City militia is con- 
firmed by Burgomasters Joost Buik, Jan Klaasz van Hoppe and 
Hendrik Cornelisz." 

Page 1019, May 5, 1567. "With approbation of the Court, 
Harman Roodenbug and Adriaan Reyniersz Pauw were charged 
to go with Burgomaster Joost Buyk to Antwerp and to request 
the Duchess [of Parma] not to station a garrison [Spanish] in 
the city. But arriving at Rotterdam they met Burgomaster Jan 
Klaesz Hoppe, who came from Antwerp and intended to return 
to Amsterdam, with orders to go back to Antwerp within four 
days and to reply to the question whether or not those of Ams- 
terdam were inclined to accept a garrison. But the envoys, con- 
tinuing their journey by carriage, met about eighty or a hundred 
ships with soldiers who were already ascending the Yael for 
Gouda and further to Amsterdam." 

The following individuals are presumably of the same family: 
From 1666 to 1668 Dr. Cornelis Hop was pensionary [chief law 
councillor or Corporation attorney] of Amsterdam. 

In 1678 Dr. Pieter Hop and in i68o Dr. Cornelis Hop were 
Secretaries of the same city. 



'9o8.] The Hoppe-Hoppen- Hopper Lineage. 2 7 I 

Cornelis Hoppesack was in 1655, Regent of the Poor House in 
.^TSfJ'^c-?' and from 1648-1663, Regent of the Poor House on 
the Old Side [of the City]. 

Gysbert Michielse Hoppesack was a Regent of the Old Men's 
and Women s House from 1634-1639. 

Jan Hendrikz Hoop was a Regent of the Insane Asylum in 
1615. 

Jan Hendriksz Soop from 1611-1638 was Regent of the same 
Asylum. 

Jacob Hop was, in 1690, City Advocate or Corporation Coun- 
sel of Amsterdam, and in the same year Cornelis Hop was one 
of the Twelve Secretaries of that city. 

Vol. II, p. 1027. "On Feb. 16, 1569, Jan Cornelisz Kettelaer 
was imprisoned and Hendrik in de Hoppesack was summoned to 
the Hague [both for having embraced Protestantism]." 

Hoppers was the name of a castle or Noble House in Fries- 
land, in the village of Hemelum, under the district of Hemel- 
umer-Oldevaart and Noordtwolde, in the quarter of Westergoo 
says Tooneel der Vereenigde Nederlanden, (Scenery of the United 
Netherlands) by Frangois Halma, Leeuwaarden, 1725. 

In de Vroedschap (Town Council) van Amsterdam, 1578-1795, 
Vol. I, pp. 39, 258, are found these data: 

"Jan Claesz van Hoppen was Schepen and Register at Ams- 
terdam in 1549, Burgomaster in 1560. His daughter, Wijburch 
Jansdr. van Hoppen m. Jacob Jacobsz. Bennigh, son of Jacob and 
Maria Jacobsdr. Verheyen, Register 1578-1581, chosen Deputy 
of the Guard (Schutterijen) May 27, 1578, Schepen 1578, Cloth 
Merchant, Warden of the Cloths, 1580. Buried O. K. (Old Cal- 
ender) Aug. 7, 1581. Their daughter Agnieta Jacobsdr. Ben- 
nigh, b. 1561, became first wife, July 20, 1596, of Dr. Sebastiaen 
Egbertsz, alias Sabastiannus Egberti, who was Register 1602- 
1618, appointed Governor of Maurits, Nov. 3, 1618, Schepen, 1593, 
Burgomaster 1606-8, Commissioned to the Council 1609-1611, 
High Professor of Anatomy in the Atheneum Illustre at Amster- 
dam 1595, Doctor of Medicine resident in 1596 in the Convent of 
the Eleven Thousand Virgins, in 1606 at the Old Side Cemetery 
and upon his death in Kalverstraat. His collective wealth and 
that of his two lamented wives at his death was florins 206,000. 
He was the son of Egbert Meynertsz and Diewer Jacobsdr., was 
born 1563 and buried O. K. April 16, 162 1." 

The Memoirs of one Joachim Hopper are often quoted. In 
William of Orange \iy Ruth Putnam (N. Y., 1895) at Vol. II, p. 
122, is found: "Joachim Hopper was a learned Doctor of Laws, 
a Fleming, a Catholic and a Nationalist — that is, he was loyal to 
Philip, but wished the Spanish to be withdrawn. In 1566, he 
went to Spain to give the King information on the affairs of the 
Netherlands and remained there as representative of the Prov- 
inces. His counsel to Philip to permit an interregnum at this 
crisis, shows how little he understood the situation at home. As 
a practical man of affairs he was considered very effective. On 
March 18, 1577, Granville wrote: 'The letter seems to be very odd 
and evidently from the forge of poor Sieur Hopperus, who did 



2 72 The Hoppe- Happen- Hopper Lineage. [Oct., 

not write the best French in the world, God pardon him. He 
was learned, but knew little of business, as can be plainly seen.' " 

La Nouvelle Biographie Generate, Vol. 25, states he was born 
at Sneeck in Friesland, Nov. 11, 1523. He received the degree of 
Doctor in 1553 and forsook the profession of teaching the follow- 
ing year, on his appointment as a member of the Grand Conseil 
de Malines. When the Spanish Government undertook the 
creation of a University at Douay, he was put in charge of its 
formation. Called to Madrid in 1566, he became Privy Council- 
lor to Philip II, and Chancellor of Affairs of the Low Countries. 
He was more moderate than the other ministers of that monarch 
and was the author of numerous noted books and Mss. He died 
at the capital, Dec. 15, x^^^d. Vide also Motley's 7^2>^ of the Dutch 
Republic, Part II, Chap.'V; Part IV, Chap. IV. 

Christiaen Hoppe, born 162 1, at Amsterdam, studied at Helm- 
stadt and in 1647 became Lutheran preacher at Enkhuizen. In 
1656, he removed to Haarlem and in 1660 was called to his native 
city where he died in 1670. After 1652 he devoted himself to ed- 
ucating young men for the ministry. A sermon written by him, 
though only of six pages, 4to, was published for the fourth time 
in the year 17 10, forty years after his death. 

Some Colonial Hoppers. 

Three brothers, natives of County Durham, England, settled 
in Flushing, L. I., circa 1675. About the year 1700, they appear 
to have removed to Gloucester County in the vicinity of the town 
of Woodbury, N. J. Here they dwelt for several generations but 
the nearness of a metropolis, and their frequent intermarriage 
with Philadelphia families, led to their gradual removal until now 
none of the name are to be found near Woodbury. Tradition re- 
lates that the brothers were John, Robert and Christopher. The 
first and third individuals appear in the Documentary History as 
residents of Flushing in 1698, but only the descendants of John 
can be traced in succeeding generations. No doubt the destruc- 
tion of the records of that town in 1789 have deprived us of much 
information. The descendants of John are found widely scat- 
tered. Although this line has been supposed to have been 
Quakers, the early Friends' Records in Flushing and Westbury 
do not contain the name. 

Robert Hopper had land in Burlington, N. J., in 1683, and is 
described in the records as of Scarborough, County of York, Eng- 
land. As this coiinty adjoins Durham, the suggestion is raised 
that he might have been one of the three brothers. He was a 
seafaring man and made voyages, as master of the ship The 
Providence between Scarborough and Philadelphia in the year 
above written. His only daughter, or heir, died in England circa 
1701. 

Capt. James Hopper, born in Chester, England, was the owner 
in New York City of vessels in the merchant service, 1793. He 
and his brothers were sons of William H. Hopper. This seems 
to be a distinct family from the other New York lines, and de- 
scendants now reside at Utica. 



■9o8.] The Hoppe-Hoppen-Hopper Lineage. 27^ 

A prominent family of the name in Maryland which is repre- 
sented by many branches, traces its ancestry to early times. 
They have been designated as the Eastern Shore Hoppers in dis- 
tinction from the descendants of the Maryland branch of the 
Long Island and Woodbury lines. As early as 1676, Capt. Wil- 
liam Hopper was a member of the Legislature, representing 
Queen Anne's County. 

Hoppers appear to have early settled in Virginia and from 
there spread through western and southern states. These came 
from Ireland or England 

Another line descended from William, John, Hugh and Alex- 
ander who came with their parents from the north of Ireland in 
1753 and settled in the Newberry District, South Carolina. Some 
of these subsequently located in Alabama. 

Descendants of a settler of the name who emigrated from 
Wales to South Carolina about the time of the Revolution and 
later removed to Kentucky, now live in Indiana. One Robert 
Hopper of Ireland, and settled in Fayette County, Penn., prior 
to that war, is now represented in the Western States. He is 
said to have had a brother in Maryland, which suggests a possible 
connection with those of the Eastern Shore. 

John and Sarah Hopper who were married in London in 1773, 
were in Philadelphia in 1787, and have descendants in New York 
and Florida. Sarah was of Herefordshire and some of their issue 
were born in England and some in Philadelphia. 

Savage's Genealogical Dictionary gives Daniel Hopper of New 
Haven in 1654, with the suggestion that it was intended for 
Hooper, and in the Rhode Island Census for 1774, is Henry Hop- 
per of South Kingston, with six in family, four males and two 
females. These records indicate that there were early individuals 
of the name in New England. Some of the traditions of the 
Durham Hoppers, state one of the brothers located there. 

Fragmentary records of other families of the name have been 
found in various places and may denote other lines than those 
enumerated. It is of 

The Holland Hoppers 

that this article relates. Riker's History of Harlem, p. 432, states 
that this family "of good Dutch antecedents, are descended from 
Andries Hoppen, who, with his wife, Geertje Hendricks, emi- 
grated hither in 1652. He was enrolled in 1653 in the burgher 
corps at New Amsterdam and granted the small burgher right in 
1657, when he owned considerable property in the city; but this 
honor he survived little more than a year." Tradition gives the 
date of arrival as 1620. The pioneer sometimes added, as a 
middle name, the designation Willemszen, denoting that he was 
the son of Willem and wrote his name both with and without the 
final " n." He never lived in Harlem and is mentioned as above 
because he was the great grandfather of Yallass Hopper, who re- 
sided in that section at a much later date. It was not until the 
fourth generation that the termination "r" became regularly 
affixed, a concession required to fit the English pronunciation.

2 74 '^^' Hoppe-Hoppen-Hopper Lineage. [Oct., 

A general trader and freighter, Hoppe's headquarters were at 
the capital. He traded in peltries, brick, timber, stone, dry 
goods, shoes, earthenware, seawan, tobacco and occasionally even 
sold a boat. With his yacht or sloop, he not only ascended the 
North River as far as Fort Orange, but also made trips to the 
north (the Dutch possessions in present New England) either 
for his own account or with cargoes belonging to others. It hap- 
pened more than once that this enterprising trader, in order to 
be able to buy in a favorable market, mortgaged some of his 
property as security for large quantities of merchandise pur- 
chased by him. Often he appeared before the Worshipful 
Court of Burgomasters and Schepens, either to prosecute claims 
against unwilling or tardy debtors, sometimes also to protect 
himself against too previous or unreasonable creditors, at other 
times to force those who sold him merchandise to live up to the 
conditions of the sale. 

From the little that the records contain about him, we learn 
that he was a strenuous, pushing, enterprising merchant ready 
to go with his " yacht " wherever there was a call for his services 
where there existed a demand for the commodities which New 
Amsterdam was able to supply, or where there was an offer of 
certain goods the Capital needed. He was a typical New Ams- 
terdam merchant and though not nearly so wealthy as many 
among them, was the peer of any in enterprise, probity and bus- 
iness sagacity. Well-to-do for those days, he owned a number of 
parcels of real estate, besides his " yacht " and stock in trade. 

He bought a plot of land in the City, Nov. ii, 1655, from 
Pieter van den Linden, described as a lot east of the Company's 
five houses, bounded west by Hendrik Kip, southerly close on 
the Old Fiscal's Kitchen. (Hendrik van Dyck, who retired as 
Fiscal in 1652 to be succeeded by Cornelis van Tienhoven.) So 
large and small, wide and long as according to the patent there- 
of to said Pieter van den Linden of March 26, 1646. 

This property was on the north side of Bridge Street, between 
Whitehall and Broad {Vide Valentine's Manual, 1861, 582). This 
was probably used for warehouse purposes because at the time it 
stood very near the East River shore. 

Hopper also owned a house and lot on the east side of Broad- 
way, north of Beaver Street. In 1657, the next lot adjoining on 
the north was used by Jacob Leendertsen of Lubec, the southern 
boundary of which was described as being Hopper's lot {Vide 
Ibid, p. 592). Andries Hoppe's house, Oct. 25 of this year, was 
on the Broadway, says Year Book, 1900, Holland Society, and 
bounded north by that of Gysbert Imbroeck, east by the sheep 
meadows, south by Gerrit de Miller, and west by the aforesaid 
Heere ivagh. It is further located Feb. 8, 1663, as being east of 
Heere Straat and adjoining on the south that of Adam Harden- 
broock, present husband of Annetje Meinders, late widow of En- 
sign Dirck Barensen Smitt. 

On Oct. 12, 1655, the principal burghers subscribed or were 
taxed for certain amounts towards needed repairs to the public 
works. Some offered to contribute in money, others in labor or

v-u "^^f^ defendant answered that as the plantiff could not deliver 
the sold land free from Indian claims and return the 1100 tiles 
which had been removed from the house, she should be non 
suited and condemned to pay to her (defendant) the 2400 guilders 
already paid on account. 

The court decided that Mrs. Hoppen should pay the balance 
demanded and that a due conveyance and deed should be de- 
hvered to her. In reference to the tile " she must demand them 
from those who enjoyed them." The deed was thereupon ex- 
ecuted by Matthues de Vos, plaintiff's attorney and is of record 
bearing date Dec. 19, 1662. 

Pending the conclusion of this matter, the widow Hoppen had 
intermarried with Dirck Gerritszen van Tright, van Buuren, 
May 8, 1660, and with his " approbation and consent " transferred 
the property to Harman Smeeman of "Comoonepau on the 
Maine," on the same day she had taken title. Said Smeeman, 
one of the earliest settlers of Bergen and a magistrate there in 
1661, conveyed the land in question "for a valuable consider- 
ation " to Samuel Edsall on Oct. 22, 1664, and Governor Nicolls 
issued a royal patent to him therefor on the same date. Bolton's 
Westchester says that Capt. Richard Morris, the next possessor, 
must have purchased from Edsall circa 1670. The property was 
conveyed by letters from Governor Andros to Col. Lewis Morris, 
second proprietor of Morrisania, March 25, 1676. 

During certain sessions of the Court held in 1665 and 1666, 
Thomas Hall, as attorney of Christiaen Davitsen. essayed to 
prove that his client had purchased of Andries Hoppen one half 
of the land, and that Geertje Hendricks, the widow, had sold the 
whole of it to Smeeman without consent and so Hall humbly 
craved judgment of restitution. On June 20, 1665, he demanded 
that she be required to give security for any judgment obtained, 
on the ground that she had no fixed domicile in the city. She 
asserted she had a house and lot there, which proved a satisfac- 
tory answer. On the trial she produced an award of arbitrators 
(Johannes van Burgh, Marten Cregier, Allard Anthony and 



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

Nicholaes Bayard) dated July 24, 1665, showing that Davitsen had 
resold the land to her. The jury, composed, among others, of 
Isaac Bedlow, Gulian Verplanck, William Bogardus, Walter Sal- 
ter and Johannes de Peyster, decided that the sale made in pres- 
ence of the arbitrators should remain in full force. Plaintiff ap- 
pealed June 6, 1666, but on Sept. 17, all parties appeared before 
Nicolaes Bayard and declared that they had mutually agreed 
" about the difference which was risen about Bronck's Land " and 
requested him to enter judgment " to the end that all proceed- 
ings at law in this case should seize." — Minutes of the Court. 

The widow Hoppe's second husband, although called van 
Tright in the New York records, was known as van Duyn in New 
Jersey. He removed from Flatbush, L. I., where he was born, 
his father Gerret Cornelise van Duyn being the common ances- 
tor of the family, to Bergen where he settled and died in 1686. 
He bought land in 1662 from Governor Stuyvesant on the Saddle 
River. His children wrote their names van Dien. Among his 
issue was Gerret van Dien, who married Vroutie Verwey and 
lived west of the above river. Winfield's Land Titles of Hudson 
County, p. 1 01, cites the confirmation of the above Dutch grant 
of 1662 in Dirck Gerritse on May 12, 1668, by "Philip Carterett 
Esq., Governor of the Province of New Cesarea or New Jersey," 
and relates that previous to his death he had sold the land to 
Baltus Barentsen van Kleek. He received the purchase money 
but before the transfer was completed, died leaving a widow, 
Gerten Hoppe and son Garret van Dien, then living in Hacken- 
sack. These completed the sale Oct. 13, 1686. 

Hoppe died in December, 1658, leaving five children. Their 
mother appeared before the Orphan Masters, Dec. nth, and 
stated that her husband had died intestate but had appointed as 
guardian of the children, Cornelis Aarsen and Lambert Huybert- 
sen Mol, who were thereupon ordered to inventory the estate. 
She plead that, until she remarried, she was not obliged to pro- 
duce an inventory and was informed that " the custom of father- 
land " required it and that she should agree with the guardians 
as to the amount which she should set apart to each child. The 
guardians were reminded that the eldest child must remain 
with the mother. On March 5, 1659, they reported that an agree- 
ment had been made "about a settlement on the children of their 
paternal inheritance" and that 1000 florins (200 florins for each 
child) had been allowed. Jacobus Vis and Isaac Kip were ap- 
pointed, April 29, 1660, to take a copy of the inventory "in order 
to settle their inheritance upon the children." — Minutes of the 
Orphan Masters. 

These minutes at p. 138, give the names of the five children as 
Catrina, Wilhelmus, Hendrick, Matthys and Adolf. Riker states 
that there were only four and names the fourth Matthys Adolfus. 
His information was doubtless obtained from the Dutch Church 
records wherein only four are mentioned and where can be found 
the baptism and marriage of said Matthias Adolphus. No child 
named Adolf appears either there or in the Hackensack records 
whither all the children removed with their mother,

Rachel Wendel, dau. of John H. Wendel of Albany, 
d. 29 July, 1823. He was a lawyer and lived at 
Schaghticoke where he dispensed such generous 
hospitality that he became known as " Prince of 
Schaghticoke." There is a tradition to the effect 
that a clause in the Knickerbocker grants pro- 
vides that the holder of the title to a certain tract 
of land must entertain the Mayor and Commonalty 
of Albany once a year, and this agreement was car- 
ried out strenuously. He was elected to the nth 
Congress as a Federalist and served from 22 May, 
1809, till 3 March, 1811. In 1816 he was chosen to 
State Assembly and also filled the office of County 
Judge. He is alluded to by Washington Irving in 
the Knickerbocker' s History of New York as " My 
cousin, the congressman," and when Mr. Irving vis- 
ited Washington he introduced him to President 
Madison as " My cousin Diedrich Knickerbocker, 
the great historian of New York." It was this inti- 
mate friendship which was the origin of Irving's 
humorous history of New York under the non de 
plu7ne of Diedrich Knickerbocker (Appleton's Cyclo- 
paedia of American Biography, Vol. 3, p. 562; N. V. 
Genealogical and Biographiccil Record, Vol. 34, p. i, 
onward). His son. Right Reverend David Buel 
Knickerbacker, D. D., Bishop of the Episcopal 
Diocese of Indiana, was b. 24 Feb., 1833, at Schaghti- 
,coke, d. 31 Dec, 1894, in Indianapolis. He graduated 
in June, 1853 from Trinity College, and during the 
next three years studied at the Episcopal Theolog- 
ical Seminary in New York. He then went out to 
Minnesota as a Missionary of the Episcopal Church 
and began his labors among the Indians. He be- 
came Rector of a church in Minneapolis where he 
remained until chosen Bishop of Indiana ( Year Book 
of the Holland Society of New York, 1895).

Fryenmoet. Evert was a famous surveyor and civil 
engineer, as civil engineering was understood in 
those days. Howell's History of Albany County 
says that he was the surveyor who laid out the most 
part of the City of Albany. He also did much work 
tor the State and others in Jefferson, Lewis and St 
Lawrence Counties. They had eleven children one 
being the mother of Admiral Van Reypen Evert 
was the principal legatee of his uncle and aunt, John

Evert was the eldest. His mar. lie. bond calls him "tailor," Abraham was 
son of Evert Van Allen, 

Evert Van Allen was b, about 1715, but the precise date of his birth or bap- 
tism nowhere appears. He was son of Johannes Van Alen and Sara Uingman, 
a.nd Sara in her will (vid. Calendar of Wills number 1806, probated 1746) men- 
tions her son Evert, He m. Margarita Fitzgerald and had seven children, of 
whom John E, was the eldest and Abraham E. was the second. Evert was 
dead in 1769 when his brother Jacobus made his will. 

Johannis Van Allen is called "my eldest son " in his father's will, but the 
date of his birth or baptism is not found. He m. 3 July, 1697, at Albany, Sara 
Dingman, dau, of Adam Dingman and Aeltie Jacobse Gardiner. They appear 
to have had 10 children. He took the "test oath" in 1699, "lives to ye south- 
ward of Albany." On 22 Feb., 1677-8, he bought a lot on North Pearl Street, 
Albany. On 30 Nov., 1702, he signed the certificate in favor of Paulus Van 
Vleck, precentor of the Congregation at Kinderhook, and in consequence was 
summoned before the council at New York and received "a caution to be more 
careful in future." In 1716 he was a member of the consistory of the Reformed 
Dutch Church at Kinderhook. He was son of Lourens Van Alen. 

Lourens Van Alen was in Kingston as early as 1669, later he is found at 
Albany and Kinderhook; he d. in 1714. He m. Elbertje Evertse, only child of 
Evert Luycase Backer, one of the original patentees of Kinderhook, and through 
her the entire interest in the Kinderhook (otherwise known as the De Bruyn) 
Patent passed into the Van Alen family. Lourens was closely rclatcci to 
" Pieter van Haelen, van Uytrecht, shoemaker," who came to New York in the 
Vergidde Sever in May, 1658, and lived at Kingston and Albany, but whether 
Ifis younger brother has not been determined. The family name is probably 
derived from Haelen, an ancient town in Belgian Limburg. 

Rev, H. Van Allen of Utica, N. Y., who is collecting material for a Van 
Allen Genealogy has kindly furnished the above lineage.

LORDS OF MANORS OF NEW YORK. 

With a Preface on the Aryan and Seigneurial Order of 
THE Empire in America. 



By the Viscount be Fronsac. 



In 1540, Charles, Count of Hapsburgh, Grand Duke of Aus- 
tria, King of Spain and Emperor of the Romans, extended the 
Seigneurial Order of the Empire over America, of which entire 
continent he had become absolute master. 

To this Order, as a nobility, were admitted the Founders and 
Defenders of the Empire in America, to hold lands incorporated 
into lordships, or seigneuries, hereditarily with personal repre- 
sentation in the Emperor's Council in the various provinces 
where their seigneurial holdings extended; and as a class, even if 
bereft of lands and function by revolution and disaster, to con- 
stitute in their remotest generations a class of honor and pre- 
cedence like the noblesse-de-race of old Europe. 

The first and highest title of this Seigneurial Order he be- 
stowed on Colan, grandson of Christopher Columbus (the Duchy 
of Veragua) with the additional rank of hereditary Vice- Ad- 
miral. 

On the dismemberment of this great Empire of Charles by 
treaty and distribution, the rights of succession of rank and 
property of these families were continued by international agree- 
ment and the Seigneurial Order was continued by their establish- 
ment and added to by each succeeding monarchy. Thus the 
Dutch created their Patroon-Lords in New Netherland and when 
that passed to the British King Charles II, he added to them in 
Seigneurial succession the Lords of the Manors of New York, 



^•J Lords of Manors of New York. 



293 



while m Carolina he created a special list of Seigneurial titles 
such as Landgrave to rank with Earl, Cacique to rank with Vis- 

A?TT/^f^"? ^'^^^^ ^"^^ ^°^"^ °^ Manor. His brother, King James, 
y ii (11), later on countersigned Lord Baltimore's addition of the 
Lords of the Manors of Maryland. 

Already the Kings of France in Canada and Louisiana had 
followed after King James, VI's Baronets of Nova Scotia, with 
beigneurial rank in the Dukes, Marquises, Counts, Barons and 
beigneurs of that country— the highest of which was the Duke of 
Arkansas bestowed on John Law, finance minister of France and 
principal founder of Arkansas. 

Then when all these degrees, concessions and rights passed 
by treaty under the sovereignty of King George, III, by the 
Treaty of Paris of 1763, they were expressly secured to the fam- 
ilies who had won them by their nobility, valor and merit. So 
from monarch to monarch by treaty and treaty, the imperial 
titles and sovereignty of the Emperor Charles in America were 
passed on until they finally devolved on the Kings of Great 
Britain and Ireland, with the chiefship of the Seigneurial Order 
of the Empire. 

The Revolution in America (1776-83) and the formation of 
the United States has not been deemed to have abrogated the 
Seigneurial honors of families residing in the states which were 
these former provinces of the Empire, any more than it destroyed 
the peerage rights of the family of Lord Fairfax of Virginia. ' 

To assert, maintain and obtain recognition of these rights be- 
fore the Court of the Empire, as well as to preserve the Aryan 
purity of succession of these families, caused their principal de- 
scendants to reorganize the Seigneurial Order of the Empire in 
1880 (first established in America by the Emperor Charles in 1540) 
to which they added the name of Aryan. In 1908, by the gen- 
erosity of the Baroness Dorchester, Greywell Hill, Winchfield, 
England (Chief of one branch of the Order), the dies of the 
decoration were paid for and made by Spink, 17 and 18 Piccadilly, 
London (maker to the King and for the Order of the Garter). 
They were approved by the Herald's College and by the Earl- 
Marshall of England (Duke of Norfolk), and are to be worn by 
those descendants in the male line of the familj' name of the 
above mentioned families on registration in the Aryan and Seig- 
neurial College of Arms, Viscount de Fronsac, Herald-Marshall. 
London, Ontario, Canada.

perially founded order in America, are the following:

OBITUARY. 



Wandell, Townsend, lawyer, Annual Member, elected Jan. 12, 1900, was 
killed in a railway accident at Bologna, Italy, June 28, 1908, aged 60. Mr. 
Wandell was a bachelor; his father was Judge Benjamin Coe Wandell; his 
home was at 1 57 East 83d Street, where he lived with his brother Francis L. and 
his sister Miss Josephine Wandell. His office was at 51 Chambers Street. He 
was a graduate of the Columbia College Law School in 1865, and in his law 
practice his uprightness of purpose and trustworthiness of character gained for 
him the confidence and trust of many clients who placed the entire charge of 
their estates in his hands. His friend, J. S. Voorhees, in a letter to the press 
pays him this beautiful tribute: " Everyone loved and respected him, and they 
could not help loving him for he was true, honest and just. He had a kind 
word for every one. The world is better for having known Townsend Wandell 
and though his self-sacrificing earthly career is ended, his pure upright 
example will live and inspire others for good." Mr. Wandell was a member 
of the Union League, Club, the Sons of the Revolution, the Holland Society, the 
St. Nicholas Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Historical 
Society, New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, Phi Beta Kappa, 
Delta Kappa Epsilon, the Dwight Alumni Association, and the Columbia Law 
School Alumni. He was trustee and manager of the New York City Church 
Extension and Missionary Society of the Methodist Church, and manager of the 
New York Deaconess Home and Training School. The funeral services were 
held in the Madison Avenue Episcopal Church, Friday, July 24, 1908.

BOOK NOTICES. 



Our American Barclays, by Cornelia Barclay Barclay. Cloth, small 
Quarto, pp. 80. Limited edition, privately printed. The Grafton Press 
New York. 1908. ' 

This little work is filled with interesting details concerning the early 
members of the ancient Barclay Family of Albany, N. Y., so many of whom 
were loyalists at the time of the Revolutionary War. The information is 
largely imparted in the form of conversational letters addressed to the children 
of the compiler, with additional chapters on the early English and Scotch 
families of the name, the Saxon "de Berkeleys" and the Rev. Thomas 
Barclay, the first of his family in America, together with copies of various 
epistles written by and to members of his family. It is probable that the Rev. 
Thomas Barclay, who only took clerical orders at the late age of forty years, 
was allied to the Barclays of Fifeshire, Scotland, and was possibly a son of Sir 
Robert Barclay, Bart, of Pierston, County Fife, by his second wife Barbara 
Deas(?). Positive proof of this fact is lacking, but a skilled searcher in Scot- 
land has produced many documents pointing to this origin of the family and 
the clue is well worth serious investigation. So much new and valuable data 
has been collected by Mrs. Barclay beyond the meagre facts hitherto known, 
that it is hoped a complete genealogy of this interesting Tory family will soon 
be published in the standard form and arrangement. In the meantime the 
compiler is to be congratulated upon putting the family history in so compact 
and readable a form, the book being beautifully printed in large clear type, 
with wide margins, and the paper and binding up to the high standard set by 
its publishers.

first buried is known as Cole's Hill, since James Cole, who came to Saco, 
Maine, in 1632, and one year later located at Plymouth, lived on a grant of ten 
acres including this first burial ground. His descendants are traced to the 
tenth generation and their children. To this is added the three families 
named on the title page, and other Cole families in America, which are only 
briefly given, as will be seen when seven families cover that number of pages. 
The Revolutionary records fill about fifty pages, and an index in three columns 
of eighteen pages, completes a book which shows industry and will be sought 
by many. 

The Cantrill-Cantrell Genealogy, by Susan Cantrill Christie. 
Cloth, Octavo, pp. 271. Full Index. The Grafton Press, New York. 1908. 

This is the first complete record of the descendants of Richard Cantrill, a 
resident of Philadelphia prior to 1689, and of the earlier Canirills in England 
and America, and in subject matter, arrangement, and beauty of print and 
binding reflects high credit upon the family historian and the publishers. It 
is the first genealogy of this family, one of the oldest in America, to be pub- 
lished and represents ten years constant and faithful labor. The name can 
be clearly traced to the original family of Cantrill or Cantrelle in France, and a 
brief history is given of the early Cantrills in England, Ireland and America. 
No claim is made to the arms or early lines of ancestry, however, unless there 
is absolute proof of right or relationship, and this frank attitude of the compiler 
cannot be too highly commended, as the general tendency of the family his- 
torian is toward assuming the arms of a distinguished ancestry, without the 
slightest right or reason. No less than 2127 desecendants are traced out and 

f (raise should be awarded the workmanlike manner of arrangement, which 
ollows the best and most modern practice in genealogical manuscripts. The 
book is sure to become a work of reference and no large genealogical library 
can afford to be without a copy. A word of praise should also be said in 
behalf of The Grafton Press, the publishers, for its careful preparation and 
publication of the manuscript and the great skill and taste displayed. In this 
age of indifferent printing of inaccurate genealogical matter bound up in the 
cheapest form, it is refreshing to find a book of this character and style. 

Additional Contributions to the History of Christ Church, 
Hartford, Conn., with the Records of Baptisms, Confirmations, Communi- 
cants, Marriages and Burials, 1760-1900. Volume II. Cloth, Octavo, pp. 517. 
Full Index. Press of Belknap & Warfield, Hartford. 1908. 

This splendid transcript of the records of one of the most important 
churches in Hartford fitly crowns the compilation of the history of this parish, 
so well related in the first volume, previously reviewed in the Record. 
Church registers are dry reading save to those engaged in hunting up the lost 
generations of their name, yet these records are filled with many interesting 
details due to the untiring energy of Mr. George E. Hoadley, a member of one 
of the oldest families in the parish. By searching old magazines and news- 
papers, county and private graveyards, and by means of extensive inquiries 
arid correspondence, Mr. Hoadley was able to add many items of incalculable 
value to the annals of the church. A marked feature of this volume is the 
exhaustive index, showing at a glance the place, number and character of the 
record concerning each name. The press work and binding is in keeping with 
and fully up to the standard of Volume I, and these volumes will have an 
important share in perpetuating the history of the early Connecticut churches.

The custom of celebrating the original founding of early Colonial towns is 
growing and will result in inciting civic pride and stimulating a desire to learn 
more concerning the historic progress of the New England cities. The more 
interest aroused among the descendants of the early settlers the greater 
harvest will result from the unearthing of private records and documents of

Andrew Ellicott His Life and Letters, by Catharine Van Cortland 
New York ^'j^fg''^^^'^' ^'°^^' Octavo, pp. 256 with Index. The Grafton Press, 

.u ^n^ i^^ exception of a few brief statements in the histories of several 
other allied families, a short biographical sketch in Stuart's Civil and Military 
Iingineers of America, and a few stray newspaper articles, no adequate account 
of Major Andrew Ellicott s career has been published before the present work 
Ihe book has been prepared from many valuable private papers letters 
diaries and documents in the possession of his descendants relative to the 
surveys and plans of the District of Washington and is doubly welcome as a 
full fair and final biography of one of the ablest civil engineers this land has 
produced, and as a timely tribute to one, who, with Major L'Enfant, planned and 
laid out the City of Washington, the capitol of the United States. It would be 
impossible in a few brief lines to do justice to the many and vast surveying 
tasks accomplished by Mr. Ellicott, but when it is stated that he laid out the 
Baltimore and western boundary of Pennsylvania in 1785, made the first 
measurement of Niagara in 1790, laid out the road to Presqu' Isle Fort in 
1793-95. and the Florida boundary, the ability and activity of the man com- 
mands the respect of the nation. He was the son of Joseph and Judith (Bleaker) 
Ellicott, whose direct ancestor was that Andrew Ellicott, who came from 
Devonshire, England, in 1731, to settle in Bucks County, Pa. 

His father was an expert clockmaker, whose strong mathematical bent of 
mind undoubtedly endowed his talented son with the love of the exact sciences. 
The numerous extracts from private dairies and the copies of his letters incor- 
porated in the book give a vivid picture of his career and in this wav the 
author has cleverly made her talented subject tell his own story. His literary 
style is excellent, the text being clear, simple and flowing, so that the readers' 
interest is kept up with the progress of the work and he arrives at the close all 
too soon and with keen regret. The art of biography is difficult in that the 
personality of the writer is ever struggling with the character of the subject — 
it may be unavoidably — and the result is too apt to prove a personal and 
prejudiced criticism, rather than an impartial life history. In this work, 
however, the authoress has confined her words to description rather than 
comment, with a result as happy for her subject as it is creditable to herself. 
The illustrations are superior in tone and finish, the typography distinct and 
restful and the dress of the volume appropriate in quiet taste to the Quaker 
attributes of its hero. It is a book for the libraries of book-lovers as well as 
the general public and deserves every success. 

A History of Thomas and Anne Billopp Farmar and Some of 
Their Descendandts in America, by Charles Farmar Billopp. Cloth, 
Octavo, pp. 125. Full Index. The Grafton Press, New York. 1907. 

The family of Farmar was early established at Sanciton, Co. Oxon, Eng- 
land, and Major Jaspar Farmar of County Cork, Ireland, first arrived in 
America in the ship Bristol Merchant, on September 9th, 1685, bringing with 
him his sons, their families and twenty servants. He settled on a tract of 5,000 
acres purchased from William Penn, embracing all of " Farmars or White- 
marsh Township, Philadelphia County, South of Shippack Road." 

His grandson, Thomas Farmar, Chief Justice of Supreme Court of New 
Jersey, son of Jaspar Farmar, Jr., the husband of Anne Billopp, daughter of 
Captain Christopher Billopp of the Royal Navy, was the founder of the branch 
of the family whose descendants are set forth in this work. Many of these de- 
scendants were officers in the English Army, and the annals of the family show 
a long line of distinguished men. The material has been ably treated by the 



^04 Book Notices. [Oct., 

compiler and his work evidences great research, accuracy and ability. The 
method of arrangement is somewhat confusing, and renders the tracing of any 
descendant difficult to one unfamiliar with the family lines, but this must be 
attributed to the narrative style which the author uses and to the wealth of 
interesting detail which fills the pages. The illustrations of Coat Armor, 
portraits and pictures of manor houses, as well as the entire style of the volume 
IS in excellent taste and the work will make a valuable addition to select 
genealogical libraries. 

Family Records of the Descendants of Gershom Flagg (born 
1730) of Lancaster, Mass., with other Genealogical Records of 
THE Flagg Family Descended from Thomas Flagg of Watertown, 
Mass., and Including the Flagg Lineage in England, by Norman 
Gershom Flagg and Lucius C. S. Flagg. Cloth, Octavo, pp. 173, with Index. 
Privately printed. 1907. 

In collecting and compiling all Flagg records in New England, whether of 
those of the name directly related, or of those as yet unplaced, the authors have 
undoubtedly preserved information which in a few years more might have 
been difficult if not impossible to secure. With all these facts before them 
future family historians can more readily exercise the process of selection and 
elimination so necessary in the compilation of an accurate and complete 
genealogy. Thomas Flagg, baptized at Whinberg, Norfolk, England, 161 5, 
who sailed for America in 1637, when twenty-one years of age, and settled at 
Watertown, Mass., was the founder of the main American line of the name and 
from him sprang a long line of descendants. The compilers have made the 
dry facts of descent interesting by adding many excellent photographs of 
members of the family and their homes, and when possible have inserted short 
biographical sketches. The book shows an earnest spirit of research, a careful 
and accurate selection of the important facts contained in the town, county and 
court records, and a comprehensive arrangement of the subject. It is to be 
regretted that the system of nomenclature is special rather than standard, but 
this must in a measure be attributed to the fact that the compilers are not 
trained genealogists, and hence have sacrificed general utility to the public to 
an individual system with which they are familiar. What is easy to them 
through custom of usage may be extremely intricate to the general searcher, 
and as time saved is the essence of success in a long hunt for family pedi- 
grees, any new and original method of indicating descent, requiring special 
education, is always condemned by skilled genealogists. The press work, paper 
and binding of the book is in excellent taste, and as an authoritative work the 
book is well fitted for extensive reference. 

^ The Grafton Magazine of History and Genealogy, a Quarterly 
Publication, Vol. I, No. I. June, 1908. The Grafton Press, New York. 1908. 

The appearance of a new magazine devoted to historical and genealogical 
subjects is always weclome for a number of manuscripts, family histories 
and unpublished records are constantly coming to light, and it will soon be 
impossible for the older and well established periodicals to print even those 
deserving of record. The time is rapidly approaching, however, when a 
nice discrimination must be exercised, not only by the libraries in accepting 
genealogical works but by the magazines in filling up their numbers. Pages 
devoted to long lines of descent, without historical or biographical notes, soon 
grow uninteresting and "histories of the unimportant " are becoming a drug on 
the genealogical market. For this reason much care should be exercised in 
selecting and publishing material of this nature, and it is a pleasure to note 
that this first number of the Grafton Magazine is filled with good reading and 
with articles of literary value. May it have a successful and prosperous career 
in its chosen field and do its part in arousing and maintaining the interest and 
wholesome pride of all worthy descendants of the early settlers of this land.

glance the source of birth and in fact may be called a " map of descendants." 

1 he ancient Flemish records must be a mine full of facts concerning many 
ot the early immigrants to this country and in tracing such portions as affect 
his kin. the compiler will aid and encourage other families of Flemish de'^cenl 
to make the effort of locating their ancestors beyond sea. Alliances with the 
family of Peter Paul Rubens, the great artist, and with the Stier Family of 
Antwerp are well worthy of perpetuation in record form and of a pardonable 
pride among their living descendants. The intricacies of descent have been 
tersely set forth and beautifully arranged by the compiler who shows a fine 
genealogical sense and confines his facts to simple, direct statement, without 
going into collateral speculations and digressions. The paper and printing of 
the work is worthy of admiration and imitation and it was a happy thought to 
add the facsimilies of family signatures from original documents in the Ant- 
werp archives. 

Middletown Upper Houses. A History of the North Society of Mid-

families and a full genealogy of the Ranney family, by Charles Col lard Adams, 
M.A.. Secretary, Treasurer, etc. Cloth. Octavo, pp. 847. The Grafton Press, 
New York. 1908. 

This book begins with an account of the first settlements in Connecticut 
prior to 1651, when Mattabeseck (1653 Middletown) was made a town. Upper 
Houses was finally called Cromwell in 185 1. The history of this place is full 
and interesting. The descendants of Thomas Ranney occupy the pages from 
143 to 505. Brief genealogies follow of Bulkely, Butler, Clark, Doolittle, Ed- 
wards, Eells, Gaylord, Gridley, Hall, Hubbard, Hurlburt, Keith, Kelsey, Kirby, 
L'Hommedieu, Prout, Riley. Sage, Savage, Smith, Stocking, Stow, Treat, War- 
ner, White, Wilcox, and Williams families. The book throughout is profusely 
illustrated. A three column index of fifty-eight pages concludes the volume 
which will prove satisfactory to many. It would have been preferable to 
have the genealogies follow the approved plan adopted by the Register and 
Record but nevertheless the work is welcome.

has grouped the more striking features of such alliances into seven chapters,

and while he does not claim an exhaustive statistical examination of the 
question, he has clearly set forth such principles as should be deduced from the 
material available. Although the pamphlet is not of a genealogical nature yet 
it will prove of value to tht)se who study the history of families and by calling 
the attention of genealogists to this phase of social life, may result in valuable 
facts and discoveries. The author's style is clear and logical and his work 
shows much erudition. 

George Morton, of Plymouth Colony, and some of His De- 
scendants, by John K. Allen. Paper, Royal Octavo, pp. 43. Privately 
printed. 1908. Full Index. 

The first known record of George Morton was in the Dutch Church 
Records of Leyden, Holland, and describes him as "merchant, from York in 
England, accompanied by Thomas Morton his brother and Roger Wilson, his 
acquaintance, ' and married to Juliana Carpenter, maid from Bath in England, 
accompanied by Alexander Carpenter, her father, and Alice Carpenter, her 
sister, and Anna Robinson, her acquaintance. The marriage took place "23 
July — 2 August, 1612." He came to Plymouth in the ship Anne during the 
latter part of July, 1623, was a brother-in-law of Gov. William Bradford, and 
was probably the author gf " Mourt's Relation," the first publication of informa- 
tion about the adventure of the Pilgrims. Nothing indicates his original place of 
residence in England, and his English ancestry has never been authoritatively 
traced, but the author has followed down the first four generations in America 
with great accuracy and has continued certain branches down to the tenth 
generation. The arrangement and treatment of this genealogy is altogether 
admirable, following as it does, the best principles of recording descent and 
clearly and concisely setting forth the link without going into collateral 
branches and unnecessary detail. The paging, printing and type used show 
the taste of a trained genealogist, and the sole regret is that the pamphlet is 
not bound in cloth for the greater preservation of its valuable contents.

interest in the history of the early towns, appears to be a wise method of 
collecting into one volume historical matter which could not be compiled by 
one author without great labor and research and credit is due to the editorial 
department of The Grafton Press, for inaugurating this method of arranging 
and preserving town and county histories. John Noble in 1707 erected the first 
log house in what was to be later New Milford, and by 1712, he and his son had 
been joined by twelve other families. Later John Read laid claim to this land 
but after no less than fifteen lawsuits, finally abandoned the struggle and 
removed to Redding. Thereafter the new town flourished and the names of 
Boardman, Taylor, Noble, Gaylord, Bostwick, Canfield, Baldwin, Griswold, 
Sherman, Sanford, Mygatt, Marsh, Hine and Turrill appear among the promi- 
nent settlers. Its most celebrated citizen was Roger Sherman, whose career 
during the War of the Revolution was conspicuous for sound legal sense and 
patriotism. The book is divided into two parts, the first relating to the ancient 
history of the town, the war records, the old houses and cronology, etc., and the 
second to the Bi-Centennial exercises, The illustrations consist of portraits of 
prominent citizens and some of the points of interest in the town, and are 
admirable half-tones, while the entire appearance of the book reflects credit 
upon its publishers, whose enterprise merits commercial success.

New Jersey Archives. Second Series, Volume III. Newspaper Ex- 
tracts. Vol. Ill, 1779. Edited by William Nelson. Cloth, Octavo. pp:786. The 
John L. Murphy Publishing Co.. Trenton, N. J. 1906. 

This volume chiefly relates to the progress of the War of the Revolution, 
of which the most notable episodes dealt with are the Battle of Minisinck; 
Col. Sincoe's dash on New Brunswick; the Lee-Laurens duel; the depreciation 
of the currency; the Governor Livingston and Sir Henry Clinton correspon- 
dence; the British raid on Elizabeth; and the raids of the Loyalists on the 
so-called "New Jersey Volunteers;" and the events at Washington's Head- 
quarters at Middlebrook. Mingled with these war reports are the usual 
advertisements for sales of real estates, recovery of runaway slaves, eloping 
wives, and trade notices. In brief, the volume is a running diary of the men, 
time and places of 1779. and contains much valuable and curious information. 
In conjunction with the First Series, which deals with the Colonial period, the 
Second or Revolutionary Series, will fill out the annals of New Jersey, a 
State which was one of the most active and important battlegrounds in the 
struggle between the large landed proprietors and the small village tradesmen, 
and which as stragetic ground was alternately occupied by British and 
Patriot troops for many years of the war. This Series of Volumes of New 
Jersey History are all important and should be found in every Library of any 
size in the United States. 

John Watts de Peyster, by Frank Allaben. Cloth, Octavo, Two 
Volumes, pp. 660, with Index. Frank Allaben Genealogical Co., New York. 
1908. 

Perhaps there was no more interesting period in the constructive history of 
New York than that between the years 1820 and 1880, when the times, the 
customs, the manners and the populace all underwent those mighty changes 
which have brought about the present growth of the Imperial City. The late 
General dePeysier was a prime mover in many of these progressions and until 
his death remained one of the most interesting links betvveen past and present 
New York. Of ancient and most honorable lineage, of kin to some of the best 
representative families in this State, possessed of an independent fortune and a 
generous income, of marked intelligence and ability, he early in life devoted 
himself to the study of military affairs, and by his sound advice and energetic 
efforts effected wide reforms in the Militia and Fire Department of the State of 
New York. For these services he was rewarded with the rank of Brigadier- 
General, and later breveted Major-General by the Legislature of the State 
of New York. 

As an author of numerous monographs on a great range of subjects and as 
a military critic of the battles of the Revolutionary and Civil War, his writings 
always commanded the respect and attention of those interested m such 
subjects. Mr. Allaben is admirably fitted for the task of being his biographer, 
not only for his special genealogical knowledge, but for his ability to digest 
and put together the countless facts of interest found in the private diaries and

writings of Mr. dePeyster. He has, when possible, made the General relate in 
his own language the important facts in his career and thus permitted the man 
to be his own defender and the reader his own critic. A complete biography 
of General dePeyster's writings is annexed to the second volume, as well as a 
full index, whicli greatly adds to the value of the work as a book of reference. 
The portraits and other illustrations are clear and well chosen and the pub- 
lication merits the approval of the general reading public. 

The Sanxav Family and Descendants of Rev. Jacques Sanxay, 
Huguenot Refugee to England in 1685, by Theodore Y . Sanxay, A. M., LL.B. 
Cloth, Quarto, pp. 217, with Index. Privately printed. New York. 1908. 

The name of Sanxay is unusual and can be traced back to the beginning 
of the Christian Era. Its Latinized form is Sensacus (A. D. 936) or Sancium, 
and there is a town in France, called Saxay, in the Province of Pitow, which 
existed as early as 300, A. D., but all indications go to prove that the family 
name existed before the town was established. Of several families of the 
name in France, that of Pierre Sanxay of Saintes, Pastor of a Reformed 
Church in 1569 is the first that can be traced of the present English family of 
the name. He was probably of gentle, if not noble birth, and the records of 
his church, commencing October, 1570, are still preserved. The compiler has 
traced out several branches in France and the main branch in England, from 
which springs the American branch, being descended from Rev. Jacques 
Sanxay, refugee to England in 1685, and pastor of St. Olaves Church, Exeter, 
England. The lines are clearly and fully established and the author has 
cleverly arranged his extensive facts in the smallest possible space. The 
research for the work must have been difficult and expensive, dealing as it does 
with ancient French notarial records, and the compiler exhibits a sound 
genealogical sense in his collection of family history. The type and fine paper 
used in this work leaves nothing to be desired, and it is an acquisition to the 
shelves of those interested in family research. 

Colonial Families of the United States of America, in which is 
given the history, genealogy and armorial bearing of Colonial Families who 
settled in the American Colonies from the time of the settlement of Jamestown, 
13th May, 1607, to the Battle of Lexington, 19th April, 1775. Edited by George 
Norbury Mackenzie, LL.B. Cloth, large Octavo, pp. 730. Full Index. The 
Grafton Press, New York. 1907. 

The aim of this work is to make a complete and reliable record, devoted 
exclusively to those .American families whose Colonial ancestors laid the foun- 
dations of the Republic, and the editor has brought to this monumental task 
great research, learning and ability, not only in tracing out his material from a 
mass of documentary data and traditional dicta, but in arranging and con- 
densing his facts into reasonable bulk. Necessarily many of the pedigrees 
displayed in this volume, must have been supplied by the heads of the families 
interested and it would have been impossible for the editor to verify all the 
facts claimed, not only as to the right to bear coat-armor, but as to the original 
ancestor named and his location in Old England. Vast as is the difference 
between statement and proof of descent, the chasm is still more wide between 
bearing arms by right or by tradition. The desire of all good republicans for 
heraldic devices is after all an innocent vanity, and perhaps the strongest 
proof of our descent from the English commoners lies in the American Social 
classes so "dearly loving a Lord." 

The editor of the work has wisely avoided the pitfalls of his task in 
accepting, without comment, those few claims which must try even the 
strongest genealogical faith, and simply records the pedigrees sent, leaving 
the reader the privilege of taking the claim with a grain of salt. The greatest 
value of the work lies in those pedigrees compiled since the date of arrival of 
the original ancestor in this country and such charts seem to be full, accurate 
and admirably arranged. The printing of the work follows the best English 
traditions and the type, paper and wood cuts of the arms all are worthy of this 
fine publication. The bulk of the families named are from the Southern 
Colonies and it is hoped that in the projected future editions of the work

tarn important discoveries made by Prof. C. S. Hoppin, Jr., in regard to the 
English ancestry of the family from the Church Records at Haxted, England 
extending back to 1540, and will contain much new material concerning the 
American branches of the family, brought down to date, and numbering over 
12,000 names of persons born Loomis, verified descendants of the pioneer 
Joseph Loomis. Any one who may be interested should communicate with
