Vol. XLIX. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1918. No. 1 



HON. JOSEPH HODGES CHOATE. 



An Appreciation by Charles E. Rushmore of the 
New York Bar. 



It has been said of lawyers that their fame is local and tem- 
porary, and that only those whose names are attached to some 
enduring work as author or Judge are known to the generations 
that succeed them. Occasionally, however, there comes a man 
who, by virtue of some special quality highly developed, attracts 
and holds a broader and more lasting grip on popular con- 
sideration. Such a man was Joseph Hodges Choate. 

He was pre-eminently an advocate, and his professional 
career was a constant series of forensic triumphs that made him 
for many years the most conspicuous figure in the legal profession 
in this country. He had the faculty of forcing and holding at- 
tention, and, in the discussion of complex questions of law, his 
methods of reasoning were so direct, and his style of presentation 
so simple, that every proposition was grasped without effort, and 
interest never flagged. His knowledge of human nature, his 
ability to detect and pierce the weak spots, his audacity, and 
above all his incomparable wit, coupled with a handsome presence, 
a pleasing voice and engaging manner, made him almost invin- 
cible in the trial of jury cases. He had that rare ability to compel 
a complete reversal of a false sympathetic tendency by an illus- 
tration, or a phrase, that illumined the truth and put hypocrisy 
and sham to rout. 

To his juniors at the Bar he was an inspiration, and towards 
them he was ever considerate. He took and held them captive 
with his kindly charm. 

His ideals were of the highest, and his voice and energies 
were ever ready to aid the cause of professional and civic right- 
eousness. His love of country was intense and in his death he 
volunteered the supreme sacrifice in the performance of what he re- 
garded as a patriotic duty; and he fell, indeed upon the firing line. 

The passing away of Joseph Hodges Choate marked the end 
of an epoch in the history of the American Bar, but in the circles 
of the Bar in which he worked, and in the broader world in which 
he lived, the light of his beneficient influence will not fade. 



Hon. Joseph Hodges Ckoate, LL.D. [Jan. 



HON. JOSEPH HODGES CHOATE, LL.D. 



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



" Great of heart, magnanimous, courtly, courageous." — Longfellow. 

One approaches this task with a realization of the inadequacy 
of words to compass the many-sided career of the bearer of this 
distinguished name. There was no worthy cause to which he was 
not quick to respond. Zealous for justice and for the good of his 
country, he was equally anxious to advance the welfare of the world. 
There was no branch of the law in which he did not shine. As 
Ambassador to the Court of St. James he left an indelible impress 
upon Great Britain and added immeasurably to the friendly rela- 
tions of the two countries. There he won for himself an exception- 
ally high place in the esteem and affections of the English people. 
But nothing in his brilliant career did him more credit than the 
heroic service given during the last days of his life, when, at the 
most serious risk to his health, he voiced the patriotic sentiment of 
our country. It is just to add that he became New York's most 
admired and beloved citizen. 

Joseph Hodges Choate, an Honorary Member of this Society, 
was born in the old homestead, Salem, Mass., January 24, 1832, and 
entered into rest in New York City, May 14, 1917. 

He was the youngest of four sons of Dr. George (Harvard 1818) 
and Margaret Manning (Hodges) Choate. He married October 16, 
1861, Caroline Dutcher Sterling, daughter of Frederick and Caro- 
line Mary (Dutcher) Sterling, who was born June 16, 1837, m 
Cleveland, O. Their children were: I. Ruloff Sterling, b. Sep- 
tember 24, 1864; d. April 5, 1884; 2. George, b. January 28, 1867; 
3. Josephine, b. January 9, 1869; d. July 20, 1896; 4. Mabel, b. 
December 26, 1870; 5. Joseph Hodges, b. February 2, 1876. 

Young Choate graduated with honor at Harvard College in 
1852, in the same class with his brother William. In 1854 he took 
his LL.B. in the Law School, spent a year in the Boston office of 
Leverett Saltonstall, was admitted to the Bar of Massachusetts in 
1855, and in October of the same year commenced law work in 
New York in the office of Scudder & Carter, going soon to Butler,, 
Evarts & Southmayd, with which firm and its successors, Evarts & 
Southmayd, he remained for nearly four years, being admitted to 
the New York Bar on February 13, 1856. 

Afterwards he formed a partnership with W. H. L. Barnes under 
the name of Choate & Barnes, which lasted until June 1, 1859, when 
he became a partner with Mr. William M. Evarts and Mr. Charles 
F. Southmayd, under the firm name of Evarts, Southmayd & Choate. 
Thereafter he took a high and honored place in the profession and 
for the next forty years was the acknowledged leader of the New 



igi8.] Hon. Joseph Hodges Choate, LL.D. 3 

York bar in the number, variety and importance of the causes in 
which he was engaged. The firm of Evarts, Southmayd & Choate 
continued until July 1, 1884, when it was succeeded by Evarts, Choate 
& Beaman. On January I, 1902, the firm became Evarts, Tracy & 
Sherman, of which Mr. Choate was not a member. At the date of 
his death he had his office and was associated as counsel with the 
present firm of Evarts, Choate & Sherman, of which his son, Joseph 
H. Choate, Jr., is a member. 

Mr. Choate really never retired from legal work. He was often 
at his office up to the time of his death. Some of the most important 
and complicated cases and matters in which he was ever engaged, he 
acted as counsel and advised in during the years after his return 
from England. His mind was acute, his memory reliable and his 
judgment sound up to the very end. 

In his admirable presence, fluency of address, never failing wit, 
sound knowledge, perfect self possession and control in all emer- 
gencies, as well as remarkable power of overcoming by ridicule what 
could not be answered seriously, Mr. Choate was in jury trials, 
facile princeps, the leader. But while he was the idol of jurors, he 
was the terror of witnesses and the dread of all his opponents. 

Mr. Choate had come to New York in the critical period before 
the Civil War and during all those years of doubt, conflict and suf- 
fering he proved himself to be, in the words of Hon. Charles E. 
Hughes, "a king among men notable in intellectuality, facility of 
adaptation and complete grasp of the affairs of his time — in great 
part one of the makers of the United States." 

In his successful management of the General Fitz John Porter 
case, he showed an amazing ability in his assimilation of military 
technique and so was it in the Cesnola case when the erudition he 
showed in all the mystery of Egyptian and Cyprian relics and ancient 
lore was an astonishment to the court. 

Fame also came to Mr. Choate for his virile, fearless and suc- 
cessful leadership of the "Committee of Seventy," and its fight 
against the corrupt Tweed Ring. He proved to be an especially 
able president of the New York State Constitutional Convention of 
1894 out of which came much useful constitutional action. 

From 1899 to 1905 he was our distinguished Ambassador to 
Great Britain, where he became honored and famous as a diplomat 
of a new school of diplomacy based on honest statesmanship with- 
out even the semblance of trickery of words or assumed mystery. 

In this connection an English writer in the North American 
Review says of Mr. Choate: 

"He marched with swift security to a position and a popularity 
unique in diplomatic annals. He came to us of course with a great 
name, but no one could have anticipated the extraordinary position 
he built up for himself in the social and public life of England. 

"On six successive July Fourths, Mr. and Mrs. Choate received 
on an average no less than 2,000 of their countrymen and country- 
women, and they displayed little less than what was genius for 



4 Hon. Joseph Hodges ChoaU, LL.D. [Jan. 

robbing a function of its formality. . . . England and America 
came appreciably closer together as the result of his six years' 
Ambassadorship and his name will always be remembered as a 
potent and untiring instrument of Anglo-American good will. 

"There was no occasion of the slightest English and American 
interest that could not enlist his presence and his voice, and the 
genial freshness, point and aptness of his speeches made them always 
the event of the evening. 

"He unveiled portraits and memorial windows and opened 
libraries and spoke at the Walter Scott Club, Dante Society and 
Boz Club, and was the speaker of the evening at dinners of remorse- 
less frequency and racking variety, and yet we never seemed to 
touch the limit either of Mr. Choate's versatility or of his good 
nature." 

He was never at loss to treat the subject of American Inde- 
pendence and the Fourth of July with tact. On one occasion in Lon- 
don he referred to the fact that studies of English manners and 
institutions were dear to Americans because such studies took them 
back to the time "when the dear mother country had not seceded 
from the common partnership." He added with an air of gravity 
that momontarily puzzled his hearers that it was always open to the 
mother country to come back. At an Independence Day banquet in 
London Mr. Choate refused to discuss "the day we celebrate," say- 
ing that the American Eagle was not good as a dinner bird and that 
"the British lion has tried him once or twice and found him 
indigestible." 

At the farewell dinner to Mr. Choate at the Mansion House in 
May, 1905, where three hundred and fifty of England's most dis- 
tinguished sons had gathered to greet him, he said with much feel- 
ing that he had difficulty in deciding whether he was glad or sorry 
to be returning home. "My friends on this side of the water are 
multiplying every day in numbers and increasing in the warmth of 
their affection. I am sorry to say that the great host of my friends 
on the other side are rapidly diminishing and passing away ; part 
of the host have crossed the flood and part are crossing now and I 
have a great yearning to be with the waning number." 

He added he would carry away the most delightful personal 
memories of exalting and enduring friendships formed of many 
happy homes visited and of boundless hospitality enjoyed, and con- 
tinued to speak with great earnestness on the relations between Eng- 
land and America and the duty of public opinion and the press in 
both countries. "Our interests," he said, "are so inextricably inter- 
woven that we would not if we could and could not if we would 
escape the necessity of an abiding and perpetual friendship." 

And Mr. Choate was even more influential and beloved for his 
addresses of a far more serious character. At the Centenary of 
the Founding of the British and Foreign Bible Society his address 
as the representative of the American Bible Society was most effec- 
tive and impressive, and in 1916, when as Chairman at the Centen- 
ary of the latter Society, he presided with all his wonted grace and 



igiS.J Hon. Joseph Hodges Choate, LL.D. 5 

dignity and in his introduction of the speakers touched as he did 
very deftly upon every phase of the subject discussed, he proved 
how true had always been his love for the Bible, of the wonderful 
message of which he would be the chosen advocate so long as he 
lived. 

One of the most stimulating and enjoyable factors of Mr. 
Choate's happy and useful life was his membership in the Union 
League Club, which he joined in 1867, two years after its incorpora- 
tion. He served it as President from 1873 to 1876, and there, as a 
leader and exemplar of great and far-reaching value, he attested his 
militant patriotism and luminous insight into all the important 
matters, national, state and municipal, which came up for discus- 
sion. For timeliness of historic illustration, clear and forceful logic 
and kindly and convincing wit, he had no equal. To those who knew 
him not I would say, as did the great Pitt, when asked why Fox had 
such power over his hearers : "You have never been under the 
wand of the magician." 

To him the Hon. Chauncey M. Depew has paid this tribute: 

"I have known Mr. Choate for nearly half a century and my 
admiration for his wonderful ability and regard for him increased 
with the years. 

"He was the most versatile, witty and eloquent after dinner 
speaker, and equally superior on the platform in the discussion of 
political or civic reforms on humanitarian subjects. 

"It was his conscientious devotion to duty which was the 
secret of his success and also largely the cause of his death. He 
accepted the Chairmanship of the Mayor's Committee to emphasize 
the union of Great Britain and France with the United States in the 
struggle for the democracy of the world, and he died for his 
country." 

Again at a dinner given in Mr. Choate's honor at the Union 
League Club, by the Executive Committee of the Pilgrims of the 
United States, January 27, 1917, Mr. Depew said: 

"There was William M. Evarts, the wittiest man in the country; 
Ogden Hoffman with rare gifts, the two Bradys, James T. and 
Judge John R., both remarkable; Richard O'Gorman with scintillat- 
ing Irish humor and eloquence ; Henry Ward Beecher, who was 
rarely equalled and never surpassed ; Rev. Doctor Storrs, Dr. Chapin 
and our always witty and charming General Horace Porter, but 
first of them all Mr. Choate." 

Patrick Francis Murphy, one of New York's best after dinner 
speakers, has well expressed his hearers' viewpoint: 

"When I have seen Mr. Choate stand before the assemblies in 
New York, he seemed to be a human being replete with benevolence 
meditating in what way he would be more acceptable to his Creator 
by doing the most good to his fellow creatures. 

"He is impervious to the march of time, and blessed by those 
serene qualities of the mind, he came under the phrase 'whom the 
Gods love die young.' He dies young because he never grows old." 



6 Hon. Joseph Hodges Choate, LL.D. [Jan. 

In 1907 he was appointed delegate to the Second International 
Peace Congress at the Hague, and on his return explained to the 
members of the Club the causes of the failure of the meetings to 
bring about any helpful conclusions, and the position Germany took 
in the conferences. 

In 1912 Mr. Choate was elected an Honorary Member of the 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Society and up to the time 
of his death he was ever its true friend, occasionally speaking at its 
meetings. 

On December 8, 1916, an excellent portrait in oil of Mr. Choate 
by Johan Waldemar von Rehling Qvistgaard, a Danish artist, was 
presented to the Society, the artist himself unveiling the canvas with 
a very timely address, a copy of which portrait is herewith presented. 
Mr. Choate followed with interesting remarks relating to the lecture 
of the evening, which was "Witchcraft," and referred with gratitude 
to the fact that while two of his forebears, Philip English and his 
wife, Mary, were falsely accused of witchcraft and imprisoned, both 
of them escaped safely to New York. The lecturer was Prof. Wil- 
liam McDonald, of the University of California, and in a letter I 
have from him, he says : "Mr. Choate spoke with the same charm of 
manner, the same easy command of felicitous language and the same 
gracious presence which had long been familiar to those who knew 
him and which had placed him in the front rank of American orators. 
Men like Mr. Choate do not leave successors, but they leave gracious 
and inspiring memories." 

On the occasion of conferring the degree of LL.D. upon him 
at the Columbia University Commencement of 1916, Mr. Choate's 
word pictures of his friends, Presidents King, Barnard, Low and 
Butler, were replete with witty incidents. To these he added this 
epigram: "I am," he said, "your youngest brother, born only two 
hours ago." And then, in all earnestness he spoke what proved to 
be the last words we were ever to hear from his lips in the halls of 
Columbia : 

"I thank you all for the great honor that you have conferred on 
me to-day. I have had other degrees from other institutions, some 
of them personal, some official, but this comes from men among 
whom I have lived and worked and played, men who have known 
me and have summered and wintered me for the last fifty years, and 
when they see fit to put their stamp of approval upon me I thank 
God and take courage for the days that I hope yet to live." 

He had already been made the recipient of the same degree 
from the Universities of Cambridge, Edinborough, St. Andrews, 
Glasgow, Harvard, Yale, Union and Pennsylvania, and from Am- 
herst and Williams College. Among positions of trust and honor 
held by him may be mentioned : Trustee of the American Museum 
of Natural History, Trustee and Vice-President of the Metropolitan 
Museum of Art, Governor of the New York Hospital, President of 
the New England Society, and of the Harvard Club, becoming Presi- 
dent Emeritus of the latter in 1913, and of the Century Club at the 
time of his death, member of the American Philosophical Society 



i 9 i8.] Hon. Joseph Hodges Ckoate, LL.D. "J 

and at one time President of each of the following legal organi- 
zations: American Bar Association, New York State Bar Asso- 
ciation, Bar Association of the City of New York, and New York 
County Lawyers' Association, and of that noble institute of aid to 
the blind, the "Light House." He served in the same capacity 
the National Civil Service Reform League and as Vice-President 
of the Society for the Judicial Settlement of International Dis- 
putes. 

Mr. Choate had a stalwart frame and massive head with features 
of classic mould, nose straight and prominent and as to the brown 
eyes, Mr. Allen says in the Outlook, "they reveal subtle and varied 
powers of expression, they can dart fire, droop in irony, beam in 
kindness or melt in sympathy. About the mouth rests a decided 
charm, unconcealed by mustache, and the lips are neither compressed 
nor full. Firmness is there but a smile lurks within. His grayish 
brown hair was parted in the middle over a broad forehead. Closely 
cropped side whiskers and faultless dress complete a description of 
a truly courtly democrat." 

Hamilton W. Mabie, himself an able orator, as well as writer, 
said of him: "Very few Americans have that quality of distinction 
which is characteristic of Mr. Choate and which has its source in his 
charming personality, a kind of genius for saying the right thing 
at the right moment, a certain finish and elegance of expression 
and a quality of manner which makes all classes of men at home 
with him." 

The following modest words by Mr. Choate about his own life 
seem to fit in just here: "From the beginning of my eighty-five years 
until now, I have had a great deal more than I deserved. Of friends 
I have been making them from the day I was born until now. I have 
never had any horoscope cast but I have no doubt there was a 
happy conjunction of constellations and stars at the moment of my 
birth because I got one thing by inheritance by the gift of God, 
or by some other means I cannot tell how ; it was greater than any 
fortune and it has accompanied me from that day to this and that 
was a cheerful spirit; a determination always to look upon the 
bright side and as a cardinal maxim never to say 'Die.' 

"That spirit, that temperament has stood me well in hand in 
every emergency from that day to this and is, I hope, not yet 
exhausted." 

Of his home life in Stockbridge, Mass., his friend Congress- 
man Treadway said in his eulogy delivered in the House of Repre- 
sentatives: "Mr. Choate's home was the center of social activities 
and under its hospitable roof more people of note of all countries 
have been entertained than in any similar unofficial residence. His 
democratic ways not only made him the ideal host of President or 
Ambassador, but likewise of the workman or local farmer. On his 
golden anniversary, October 16, 191 1, a family dinner was served 
participated in by his kinsfolk of three generations and the day 
following his home was thrown wide open to every man and woman 
from far and near in the community. 



8 Hon. Joseph Hodges Choate, LL.D. [Jan. 

"We all went and were received by the happy couple with their 
accustomed courtly grace. He was a leading member of all our 
village organizations and participated in the consideration of local 
questions, and would always give his time or money to all our 
efforts for village improvement and for charity and church work." 

Mr. Choate's deep and abiding affection for his wife was shown 
in a felicitous way when on being asked, "Who he would rather be if 
not himself," replied "Mrs. Choate's second husband." It is said 
that a certain English lady who was unable to note the wit of this 
reply blandly inquired, "But who is Mrs. Choate's second husband?" 

First and foremost, Mr. Choate was a red-blooded American 
and a militant patriot, but he possessed also an "international mind" 
and was the earnest advocate of a strong alliance between England, 
France and America in one common and united struggle for the 
destruction of Prussian autocratic militarism and the preservation 
at all hazards of democracy and national liberty the world over. 

He was called upon to serve as Chairman of the Committee 
appointed by Mayor Mitchel to receive the British and French War 
Commissions on their supremely important and never-to-be-forgotten 
visit to New York, and while at his age he knew that his acceptance 
of the office involved serious physical risk, yet he chose gladly to 
give himself to this service for a cause so close to his heart. 

The President's immortal message of April 2d had assured us all 
that America's honor was saved and the nation could and would now 
take her proper place among the great nations of the earth, and so 
Mr. Choate felt that his dream of Anglo-Saxon race unity in defence 
of liberty and civilization was to be realized, and he went right for- 
ward, neglecting not one single detail of his exacting office, going 
to every luncheon, meeting and banquet, and speaking at each one 
with his usual forceful, lucid and inspiriting power. 

His last public speech was on Saturday, May 12th, at the recep- 
tion and lunch given by the Chamber of Commerce to the visiting 
British War Mission, and his final public appearance was on Sunday, 
May 13th, when he accompanied his esteemed friend, Hon. Arthur 
J. Balfour, to the special service in honor of the British War Mis- 
sion, given at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. 

At the reception at his home tendered to Mr. Balfour, he said : 
"Under the guidance of the President of our choice at Washington 
we stand pledged now before all the world to all the allies whom 
we have joined to carry into this contest all that we have, all that 
we hope for and all we ever aspire unto. To-day every young man 
in America and every old man, too, is asking, What can I do best to 
serve my country?" 

At a Memorial Meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, of which 
Mr. Choate was an honorary member, his loyal friend, President 
Butler, of Columbia, spoke as follows : 

"It was my fortune to sit with Mr. Choate a few hours before 
his death when, surrounded by a group of intimate friends — among 
them Mr. Balfour and the eminent philosopher of France, M. Berg- 



igiS.] Hon. Joseph Hodges Choati, LL.D. 9 

son — he propounded to them for discussion the question of the 
immortality of the soul. As I think of it now it seems almost as if 
that charming spirit, so rich in experience, so full of service, so 
crowned with applause and honor of men of two worlds, that that 
spirit had a prescience that it was soon to go ; and feeling so confi- 
dent of a life that was to follow, was quizzically anxious to know 
what those who were younger had to say about it. Then, on the 
following day, at the close of a notable service in the Cathedral of 
St. John the Divine, Mr. Choate stood for a moment at the door 
and took Mr. Balfour's hand in his to bid him good-bye. They were 
not to meet again on this visit ; they were not to meet again, although 
neither knew it then, on this earth. Mr. Choate's last words to Mr. 
Balfour, spoken in the hearing of some of us, were: 'Remember, 
we meet again to celebrate the victory.' They were the last words 
that Mr. Balfour heard him speak. They were the last words that 
most of us, not of his immediate family, heard him speak, and they 
were singularly significant of his full end. 'We shall meet again 
to celebrate the victory' — the victory in that cause in which his 
whole heart and soul were engaged ! But may we not feel this 
morning that we are free to interpret that victory in a larger and 
still more personal sense? Are we not meeting again to celebrate 
the victory, the victory of that for which Mr. Choate stood, the 
victory of that which Mr. Choate represented, the victory of that 
which Mr. Choate was, over the meaner, the smaller, the more 
sordid and the less admirable traits of human nature. 

"When three days thereafter the summons came to our friend, 
we believe he met the great transition with calm assurance and 
faith, leaving to us the consciousness of an abiding memory, serene, 
courageous and uplifting, and an example of faithful and patriotic 
citizenship which will be a helpful guide to every young man in 
America." 

The Archbishop of Canterbury, speaking to "The Pilgrims of 
Great Britain" of his death, said Mr. Choate, who was President 
of the Pilgrims of the United States, "stood on the front line of the 
group of American citizens actively responsible for one of the 
greatest events in human history, the entry of the United States into 
the world war on behalf of what is honorable and righteous in the 
intercourse of nations and the life of men." 

The close of his work here was as strikingly fit as was that of 
the First President of the British Pilgrims, Field Marshal Earl 
Roberts, who ended his life at the front in the fellowship and service 
of his own Indian troops. Likewise Mr. Choate's life was laid 
down in the great battle in which America is already so mighty a 
factor. 

Impressive funeral services were held on the morning of May 
17th, at St. Bartholomew's Church, Madison Avenue and 44th 
Street, which were attended by representatives of three governments, 
viz.: Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British Ambassador; Mr. Hove- 
lacque, Minister of Education and member of the French War Com- 



JO Frank Barnard King. [Jan. 

mission, and Hon. William W. Phillips, Assistant Secretary of State, 
U. S. A., as well as high officials and men of distinction, including 
delegations from numerous societies, clubs and associations. During 
the funeral, exercises were held in all the public schools of the city, 
treating upon Mr. Choate's life and patriotic services. Burial took 
place at Stockbridge, the same afternoon, where stores and schools 
were closed and the bell of St. Paul's Church was tolled. 

A Memorial Service was held in London, on the 2ist, at St. 
Margaret's, Westminster, at which the Archbishop of Canterbury 
spoke, and thereafter commemorative meetings at the Harvard and 
Union League Clubs, in New York. 

One of the most distinguished gatherings of men this city has 
ever seen filled Trinity Church on the 31st of May, in attendance 
on the service held there by the members of the Pilgrims Society. 
This quotation from the address of the Rector, Rev. Dr. W. T. Man- 
ning, will fitly close this lengthy memorial : "It is hard to see how 
New York can do without him. He was the spokesman for all 
good causes and represented whatever was best in the city's life. He 
was its chief citizen, the title given him without question and by all 
alike. We knew him and esteemed him most, however, for his 
nobleness of soul, his personal charm, the brilliance and audacity of 
his wit, and his unfailing humanness. These were the things which 
made him so true a man, so rare a friend, and it is for these things 
all loved him." 

In conclusion, I would emphasize the fact that, — as it seems to 
me, — the greatest public lesson and the greatest inspiration to be 
gained from the life of Mr. Choate comes from his deep-rooted 
patriotism and devoted adherence to Democracy — not as a mere 
form of government, but as an ideal of life, and ethically Christian, 
too, because dependent upon public opinion, with a mutuality of 
respect for the thoughts and rights of others which is one of the 
main characteristics of the Christian spirit. 

Fare thee well, dear friend. "None knew thee but to love 
thee, none named thee but to praise!"

Frank Barnard King died June 15, 1917, at Sharon, Conn., 
where he was spending the summer with his family. 

Mr. King, born in Albany, N. Y., April 10, 1853, was the son 
of the late Robert Morrow and Harriet Morgan (Steele) King and 
of distinguished Colonial ancestry as set forth in The Record of 
April, 1907 ; this account includes the mention of Mr. King's Steele, 
Bradford and Barnard progenitors and the names of the mem- 
bers of his immediate family — two sisters and three brothers. 



igi8.] Early New York Church Records. \ l 

William Kinge (1595-1650), of Salem, Mass., the founder of 
the family in this country, had a son Samuel King (1633-1721), 
who was of Southold, Long Island, N. Y., about 1650; in this line 
Frank Barnard King traced his descent through eight generations. 

Mr. King's early life was passed in Albany; in 1900 he re- 
moved to New York City and later on travelled extensively in this 
country and Europe. 

His absorbing interest was genealogical research which he 
specialized in the histories of the Steele and Barnard families on 
which he was working diligently at the time of his death. He had 
hoped to publish these genealogies, but delayed from time to time as 
new and important material came to his knowledge. He had been 
a Member of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society 
for many years. 

Mr. King was a gentleman of sterling integrity and high ideals ; 
his tastes were rather those of the literary worker than of the man 
of affairs; his life had been one of leisure and quiet and he was 
never happier than when in the society of his chosen friends, by 
whom he will indeed be missed and who will ever hold him in affec- 
tionate remembrance. 

Mr. King's funeral services were held in the Memorial Chapel 
of the Albany Rural Cemetery, where he was buried. 



EARLY NEW YORK CHURCH RECORDS. 



A REPORT AND DIGEST OF THE RECORDS TRANSCRIBED BY THE 

NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY, 

I9I3 TO I9I7. 



By Royden Woodward Vosburgh, 

Historian and Archivist of the Society. 



The April and July, 1912, numbers of the Record, contained 
reports on the proposed plan of the Society, to commence the trans- 
cription of heretofore uncopied New York State church records. In 
January, 1913, a letter was sent to several Libraries and Societies, 
in which the plan of the proposed work was set forth, and in which 
a request was made for subscriptions. Through the co-operation 
thus obtained, from the New York Historical Society, the Library 
of Congress and the New York State Library, this Society was en- 
abled to commence the work, on March 15, 1913. 

The plan of this undertaking is to reproduce, with photographic 
accuracy if possible, each page of the original church record. The 
copies, which are typewritten, have the distinct advantage over the 
originals, in that they are legible; thus, numerous mistakes hereto- 
fore made by incorrect reading from the original text, are obviated. 
Usually, all writing in the original record, in Dutch, German or 
Latin, has been reproduced in the copy. This matter has then been 



j 2 Early New York Church Records. [Jan. 

translated by competent authorities, in the notes at the bottom of each 
page. In case the more learned should not wish to accept these 
translations, the original record as it was written, is before them for 
comparison. Frequently, particularly obscure pages have been re- 
produced by the photo-static process. The typewritten copies are 
certified, in order that they may be used as evidence, if necessary, 
in a court of record. 

Most of the typewritten copies are prefixed with an Introduc- 
tion ; some of them are followed by a complete history of the church 
from its establishment, to modern times. Sometimes, even the his- 
tory of the settlement has been traced from the first land grants. 
The Introductions will be found to contain much material of interest 
to both genealogists and historians, who expect more than a mere 
catalogue of names and dates. These articles have been com- 
piled as the result of my visits to the various places where the 
churches are located; and I have left no stone unturned to obtain 
the facts from the primary and original documentary sources of 
information. 

A digest follows of the principal items in each of the type- 
written copies, which have been completed since the inception of the 
work. The records are grouped by counties and localities. Copies 
are deposited in the manuscript collections of the New York Gene- 
alogical and Biographical Society, the New York Historical Society, 
the Library of Congress and the New York State Library.

SERGEANT JOHN GRIFFIN* OF SIMSBURY, CONN. 



By Z. T. Griffen of Chicago, 111., and Rev. Duane N. Griffin 
of Hartford, Conn. 



Of Welsh descent, two members of this family emigrated to 
America from London, Oct. 24, 1635, namely, Edward, the oldest, 
b. in 1601-2, and John. They were the sons of John and Ann 
(Langford) Griffin, she of Bigander, who were also the parents of 
Ann, Joan, Catharine and Margaret, all m. in 1613. The brothers 
were in the employ of Capt. Claiborne, Secretary of the Virginia 
Colony. Hotten's list shows that John was 26 years old when he 
took the oath of allegiance and acknowledged the supremacy of 
the Church of England, aboard the ship Constance, which makes 
his birth 1608 or 9. Lord Baltimore of Maryland, forcibly seized 
the Islands of Kent and Palmer in the Chesapeake Bay and 
Captain Claiborne's Virginia traders with Indians, and John and 
his brother fled from them in ships, his brother to the Dutch 
Colony of New Amsterdam, and John to New Haven Colony, as 
his name appears in the Directory of that town in 1642. The 
latter was enrolled in the New Haven Militia, and on Jan. 4, 
1643, at a Court of Newhaven he is fined with others for not 
having his arms in shape, a few pence. (Hadley's New Haven, 

P- 123) 

On July 1, 1644, he took the Oath of Fidelity to the Govern- 
ment, in the General Court at Newhaven. As a sailor he testified 
on Jan. 5, 1646, about the loss of a boat in Newhaven in the same 
Court. On page 455, Hadley's New Haven, May 1, 1649, in the 
same Court, is this record: 

"Thomas Jeffrey informed the Court that there was some goods 
taken up by John Griffen of Mr. Pell's for the use of ye boat, 
wherein J no. Griffen and himself were partners, coming to 54s, 
and he paid his part which was 16s to John Griffen, as his wife 
can testify." 

The Rev. Duane N. Griffin, a descendant of Sergeant John 
Griffin, and conversant with the vicinity and history of Simsbury, 
supplies this information. 

He died in Aug., 1681, aged about 72, from drinking, when 
over-heated, water at a spring, since called Lord Griffin's Spring, 
a highly respected and prominent citizen of Simsbury. I have 
searched the old cemetery in Windsor, in vain, twice with several 
helpers, and cannot find his grave. It is probable that he was 
buried in his own private lot where he lived on his Lordship. 
There are still rough stones in this lot, marking the places where 
several of his descendants were buried, but no names. 

* An elaborate descent from Welsh forebears was submitted herewith. 
Because of inability to prove the statements made it has been necessary to 
omit it.— Editor. 



24 Sergeant John Griffin of Simsbury, Conn. [Jan. 

He had twice represented Simsbury in the General Court; 
had been a commander of the Train Band of Simsbury, with 
rank of Sergeant. His knowledge of the Welsh language enabled 
him to be an interpreter for the Indians, who at one time burned 
Simsbury; he was sent as a commissioner to them but failed to 
avert the attack. 

He was the first manufacturer of Simsbury, if not of Windsor, 
and inventor of a new process of making pitch and tar, the latter 
being used in the British navy, and for which he received a large 
grant of land, besides what he had earlier acquired from the 
Indians, who deeded to him ten miles square, a hundred square 
miles, which tract was doubtless the same as the lay-out of the 
township of Simsbury, which was ten miles square before Granby 
and Canton towns were set off. Sergt. John, however, deeded 
back to the proprietors this large tract and in return received a 
smaller one. Then later a grant from the king of his "Lordship." 
He married at Simsbury, Anna Bancroft, or Bancraft, 13 May, 
1647, and at his death left ten children: 

i. Hannah, b. July 4, 1649, m. (1) May 10, 1667; he d- 

1669; age 23; m. (2) John Humphrey, son of Michael- 

ii. Mary, b. March 1, 1651; m (1) May 1, 1672; m. (2) 

Anthony Hoskins. 
iii. Sarah, b. Dec. 25, 1654; m. Oct. 29, 1676. 

1 iv. John, b. Oct. 20, 1656; m. Oct. 7, 1708. 

2 v. Thomas, b. Oct. 3, 1658; m. in 1693-4, Elizabeth Welton; 

he d. in 1719; she d. Sept. 28, 1722. 
vi. Abagail, b. Nov. 12, 1660; m. Ric'd Segar, on March 

27, 1682. 
vii. Mindwell, b. Feb. 11, 1662; m. Samuel Wilcoxon, Jr. 
viii. Ruth, b. Jan'y 21, 1665, unm; d. May 27 or Aug. 25, 1719. 

3. ix. Ephraim, b. May 1, 1668; m. Elizabeth Adams, Dec. 

9, 1707. 

4. x. Nathaniel, b. May 31, 1673; m. Alice Welton, March 

14, 1711-12. 

The inventory of the personal estate of John Griffin, of Sims- 
bury, taken Aug. 23, 1681, shows that all the above were alive at 
that date and that Hannah Griffin, his widow, and his two sons, 
John and Thomas were appointed Executors (vol. i, p. 313, 
Probate Rec.) 

The real estate consisted of about three square miles, or 1,920 
acres. Distributors were appointed, but the ten children divided 
the land among themselves without any assistance and were 
highly commended by the Distributors for so doing. 

1. Children of John (iv.) and Mary, his wife: 

i. Thomas (?) b. about 1710; d. in 1712-13. 
ii. Mary, bap. 30 May, or 31st, 17 13; she was ten years old 
in 1720; she m. Jehiel Messenger. 

iii. Ruth, b. Nov. 18, 17 13; d. . 

iv. Ruth, b. 14 March, 17 17; she m. 21 March, 1734, Con- 
sider Holcomb. This Ruth was called the 3d 
daughter of John. 



jqi8.] Sergeant John Griffin of Simsbury, Conn. 25 

v. Abagail, b. about 1719; m. 27 March, 1735, John 
Thomas. 

vi. Hannah, b. 14 March, 1723; m. 26 Feb., 1751, Hosea 
Wilkenson. 

vii. John, b. ; alive in 1737, sold land, see Land 

Records, vol. iv. There is much doubt about this 
John. He may have been the John who died at 
Lake George, in 1758. Personally I am inclined to 
think that this was some other John than the son of 
John, iv. I am indeed doubtful if John iv., had a 
son named John. 

2. Children of Thomas (v) and Elizabeth, his wife (see Probate 
Rec, Dec. 4, 1722): 

i. Hannah, b. Jan. 13, 1695; d. in July, 17 15, unm. 
ii. Thomas, b. May 8, 1698; d. Nov. 3, 1717, unm. 
iii. Mary, b. Sept. 16, 1699; m. Joshua Holcomb, 3rd. 
iv. John, b. in 1702; d. Oct. 10, 1703. 

5 v. John, b. in 1703; m. Aug. 2, 1725, or 1728. 

6 vi. Nathaniel, b. May 24, 1706; m. Elizabeth Griffin, 

daughter of Ephraim, his cousin. 

7 vii. Stephen, b. in 1709; m. Mary De Lacy (?); he was 

drowned March 30, 1743. 
viii. Eunice, b. in 17 12; in 1730 m. John Scott of Waterbury. 

8 ix. Benoni, b. in 1714; m. the widow of Stephen (vii.) 
According to tradition both John and Benoni married Mary 

De Lacy, a West India woman (Spanish). I am not able to 
verify this in either case, but there is much circumstantial 
evidence (very strong) that Stephen married her, and also much 
evidence that Benoni married her after the death of Stephen, but 
some against it. I think she married both. 

3. Children of Ephraim (ix) and Elizabeth Griffin, his wife (see 
vol. 2, p. 517, Probate Records, Account of Elizabeth Griffin, 
widow, and Sam'l Groswold, filed Dec. 6, 1756): 

i. Elizabeth, b. in 1709; m. her cousin, Lieut. Nathaniel 

Griffin, 2nd. 
ii. Anna, or Hannah, b. in 1711; m. May 17, 1736, Ebenezer 
Loomis. 

9 iii. Ephraim, b. in 1712; m. Elizabeth Terry, 
iv. Silence, b. in 1715 or 16. 

v. Phoebe, b. in 1722; m. Solomon Terry. 

4. Child of Nathaniel (x) and Alice Griffin. He died Feb. 23, 
5712. 

i. Alice, b. May 24, 1711; m. Nov. 30, 1733, William 
James. (The Probate Court shows that on May 5, 
1712, Thomas Griffin, a brother of above, was ap- 
pointed administrator.) 

5. Children of John Griffin (v), the 3rd son of Thomas, and 
Eleanor (Holcomb) Griffin, his wife: 

i. Matthew, b. May 21, 1726; m. Hannah Lamson. 
ii. Eleanor, b. June 5, 1729; m. Nathaniel Messenger.

Holcomb. 

6. Children of Lieut. Nathaniel Griffin, 2nd (vi), and Elizabeth 
Griffin: 

i. Elizabeth, b. Feb. 17, 1728; m. David Holcomb. 
ii. Nathaniel, Jr., b. Sept. 11, 1732; m. Abagail Fowler, 
iii. Captain Stephen, b. about 1735; m. Lucy Phelps (?). 
iv. Captain Micah, b. May 17, 1738; m. Theodosia Phelps, 
sister of Lucy. 

v. Elisha, b. ; m. Jerusha . 

vi. Seth, b. 1747; m. Mary Beower, a French woman 

vii. Martin, b. ; m. Betsy Ann . 

viii. Chloe, b. ; m. Abner Bull. 

7. Children of Stephen Griffin, 1st, and Mary De Lacy (?), a 
Spanish woman. 

i. Martha, b. J 737; rn. Deacon Joshua Holcomb (4th 

Joshua.) 

ii. Stephen 2nd, or Jun., b. , 1739; m. (1) Lucy 

Phelps (?) Carr; m. (2) Deborah Higley. 
It is uncertain from all available data whether Capt. Stephen 
Griffin, son of Lieut. Nathaniel, 2nd, born about 1735, married 
Lucy Phelps, or whether Stephen 2nd, or Jr., son of Stephen 1st 
(a brother of Lieut. Nathaniel) married her. I have spent days 
and many weeks to find out this matter. 

8. Children of Benoni Griffin and Mary De Lacy, widow of his 
brother Stephen, who was drowned in 1743 (?) as recorded in 
Simsbury Records at the request of his wife — name not given: 

i. Benoni, Jr., b. June 15 or 26, 1743; m. Martha Viets. 
ii Hannah, b. April 8 or 19, 1746; m. (1) Martin Stratton- 

m. (2) Bates. 

iii. Peter, b. Nov. 13 or 24, 1750; m. . 

iv. Mary, b. June 24, 1753; m. Jonathan Warner. 

v. Elizabeth, b. May 26, 1755; m. Timothy Holcomb. 

vi. Martha, b. April 23, 1757; m. Amos Moore. 

vii. Joab, b. Feb. 4, 1759; m. Ruth . 

viii. Abner, b. Nov. 30, 1760. 
ix. Phineas, b. Sept. 25, 1762. 

x. Abraham, b. Feb. 2, 1765; m. Mehitable Moore, 
xi. Ninian, b. Oct. 15, 1766. 
xii. Matilda, b. April 11, 1769; m. Silas Davis, 
xiii. Levi, b. Feb. 17, 1771; m. Sarah Holcomb. 

9. Children of Ephraim Griffin, Jr., and Elizabeth Terry, his wife: 

i. Daniel, b. Sept. 17, 175 1 ; m. . 

ii. Anna or Anne, bap. July 3, 1768; m (?). 

This ends the third generation.

MOHAWK VALLEY HOUSEHOLDERS IN 1800. 



Contributed by L. D. Scisco. 



The following transcript from the original census returns for 
the county of Montgomery in 1800 shows the names of the house- 
holders of Palatine town in that year and makes possible a 
comparison with the published census of the town for 1790. In 
both 1790 and 1800 the county of Montgomery embraced the 
present Fulton County, while the town of Palatine included the 
present towns of Palatine and St. Johnsville in Montgomery 
County as well as Ephrata, Oppenheim, Stratford, and the western 
part of Caroga in Fulton County. At the census of 1790 the town 
of Palatine had included also the present towns of Manheim and 
Salisbury in Herkimer County, but this area had been set off prior 
to the 1800 census. The census records are now held in the 
Bureau of Census at Washington, D. C.

department for Registration of ^etiigrees- 

Conducted by JOHN REYNOLDS TOTTEN. 



THE NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY 
conducts a department for the purpose of examining, approving and 

publishing pedigrees of individual applicants. 

The Society will accept for examination the pedigree of ANY INDI- 
VIDUAL, whether a member of the Society or not. 

Those desiring to take advantage of the facilities thus offered should apply 
to the Society for the authorized blank form on which to record the pedigree to 
be submitted for examination (enclosing 50 cents in payment for the blank). 

Applicants must either themselves, or with the assistance of professional 
genealogists, fill in the form as indicated and return the same to this Society for 
examination ; it being understood that the regular charges made by this Society 
are for examination and publication of the pedigree, and do not include genea- 
logical research in the preparation of the pedigree itself. 

When a pedigree is submitted for examination the applicant must send with 
it a preliminary fee of $15.00. Upon the receipt of a pedigree and this preliminary 
fee, the pedigree will be examined ; and if approved, it will be subsequently pub- 
lished, first in an issue of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record, and the applicant will receive 2 copies of the Record containing the pedi- 
gree without further charge. The pedigree will thereafter (when a sufficient 
number have accumulated) be published in a volume of a series, one volume 
of which has already been issued (see Vol. VI, New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society's Collections) ; and copies of this volume will be sold to those 
whose pedigrees are contained therein at the special price of $5.00 a volume. 

Pedigrees must be submitted to the Society in form complete for publication. 
If, upon examination by the Society, essential facts are added to the pedigree by 
the examiner, a nominal fee, not to exceed $5.00, will be charged by the Society 
for ascertaining and embodying such additional information in the pedigree. 

If upon examination the pedigree is found to be essentially inaccurate, it will 
not be approved and will be returned to the applicant ; and the preliminary fee will 
be refunded, less a charge of $10.00 for expert examination. 

If, when finally examined, approved and prepared for publication, the pedi- 
gree is found to require more than one page for its proper presentation, the fee 
for publishing the same, as above explained, will be at the rate of $15.00 a page 
(pages to be similar in size and form to those of pedigrees heretofore published in 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, — see issues from 
April, 191 1, to date of this issue), but, in adjusting the final charge, credit for the 
payment of the preliminary fee of $15.00 will be given to the applicant. 

For the benefit of applicants desiring extra copies of their pedigrees for 
family distribution, editions of 50 copies of such pedigrees will be supplied on 
4-page folders of linen ledger paper, with space left for additional notes, for 
a fee of $5.00. 

Individuals desiring their pedigrees prepared for examination, approval 
and later publication by this Society, and who are unfamiliar with the methods 
to pursue to secure the necessary information to establish such pedigrees, or 
who are unable to devote the required time to their preparation, — are invited 
to address this Society with a view to being put in communication with a 
professional genealogist capable of establishing and submitting them (when 
established) in proper form to this Society for publication. 

Applications for examination, approval and publishing pedigrees under the 
condition hereabove set forth should be made to the 

NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY, 
226 West 58TH Street, New York City.

BOOK REVIEWS. 
By John R. Totten. 

Editorial Note:— The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society solicits as 
donations to its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well 
as all works on Town, County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the 
Vital Records of any and all localities. It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections 
of its library any and all manuscript compilations which bear upon the above mentioned topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will be at once 
placed upon the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, each donation of such character, 
whether in printed or manuscript form, will be reviewed under the head of "Book Notices" and 
a copy of The Record containing the review will be sent to the donor. 

The Society does not solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to 
the above mentioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material 
which does not bear directly upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of The Record should be delivered to the 
Society before December ist of the previous year; for the April issue, before March 1st; for the 
July issue before June ist; and for the October issue, before September 1st. 

All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public 
to their good points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the 
interest of the genealogical student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record. 

The "Book Notices" of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as 
genealogical students, and the review of a work in The Record is equivalent to a special 
advertisement of such work. 

Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work 
donated and the name and address of the person from whom it can be purchased.

West 47th St., New York City. 

We congratulate the Society of Colonial Dames for having placed at 
the disposal of the genealogical public this fund of original material which 
would otherwise have been unavailable to the general student of family 
history. We regard the publication of such volumes as perhaps the most 
important duty of our various lineage societies, and it is to be hoped that this 
initial step on the part of the Colonial Dames will be succeeded by a volume 
in which the lines of descent of its various members will be set forth in 
elaborate detail in each generation back to the original ancestor. Recom- 
mended most heartily to all genealogical societies and to the libraries of 
Patriotic Associations.

various localities and aided them in their genealogical search. The set is 
heartily recommended to genealogical libraries.

excellence of the genealogical material contained therein, has become a stand- 
ard genealogical work of reference. All libraries that maintain genealogical 
sections should secure this volume and also the previously issued five other 
volumes of this scries. It is to be hoped that we may see many other volumes 
of this work in the future.

matter bearing thereupon and further illuminated by colored plates of the 
Arms of the several branches of the family. It is a valuable contribution to 
the history and annals of this family and a noted example of the perfection

This work forms an integral part of the series of Connecticut town Vital 
Record which have been previously presented to the public including the 
Vital Records of the towns of Bolton and Vernon (1 volume), Norwich, 
Conn. (2 volumes), and Woodstock, Conn. (1 volume), and this is the fifth 
volume of this most valuable series. 

The previous volumes issued have been of inestimable value to gene- 
alogists and this, the fifth of the series, will be greeted with the same enthu- 
siasm by the genealogical fraternity. Too much cannot be said in praise of 
the commendable zeal which has prompted the patriotic lineage societies of 
Connecticut to take up and prosecute this work, and it is to be hoped that the 
good work thus begun will continue until the State of Connecticut is as well 
covered in this field as is the State of Massachusetts. This volume will be 
followed by Volume VI of the series, which will be Part II of the Vital 
Records of New Haven, which volume will contain the indices of both parts. 
It cannot be too heartily recommended to all libraries that carry genealogical 
sections. We congratulate the Publication Committee.

the 'Pennsylvania Dutch' and the Scotch-Irish, the use of paper money issued 
as loans upon land, the planting of the Baptist, Uunkard, Episcopalian, Luth- 
eran, Mennonite, Moravian, Presbyterian, Reformed, Roman Catholic, and 
Schwenkfelder communions, etc. The details of civic government, of private 
and denominational enterprise, and of relations with the savages during the 
sixty years, are accompanied by a re-examination of the question of the 
boundary with Maryland, a new estimate of William Penn, a description of the 
land system, biographical sketches of Whitefield and Zinzendorf, notes upon 
the religious, political, and other affairs of England and other countries and 
the groups of settlers therefrom, and some history of the Indian Tribes, in- 
cluding an identification of the Great Treaty." Recommended to all biograph- 
ical and historical libraries. 

Early Philadelphia, Its People, Life and Progress, by Horace Mather 
Lippincott (joint author of The Colonial Homes of Philadelphia and Its 
Neighborhood), with a photogravure frontispiece by Charles H. Stephens 
and 119 illustrations from photographs and prints. 8vo, cloth, pp. 340, includ- 
ing index. Limited copyrighted edition. Published by J. B. Lippincott Co., 
Philadelphia, Pa. 1917. Price, $6.00 net Address: Publishers. 

The city of many institutions and unimpeached traditions is here pre- 
sented in its varying respects by the author who knows Philadelphia people 
of to-day and yesterday. The work "aims to bring together under one cover 
many fragmentary and scattered accounts of important and peculiar customs 
and institutions which live in Philadelphia to-day, serving as useful a pur- 
pose in the complexity of modern life as they did when they started. Most 
of them were original here, and though now perhaps less conspicuous than 
similar endeavours in other parts of the nation, they still retain a solidarity 
and dependableness that makes them as unique as when they were alone." 
The illustrations are excellent and the paper, typography and presswork 
beyond criticism. Recommended to all historical and general reference 
libraries. 

Colonial Virginia, Its People and Customs, by Mary Newton Stanard. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 376, with 93 illustrations. Published by J. B. Lippincott Co., 
Philadelphia, Pa. 1917. Price, $6.00 net. Address: Publishers. 

There is probably no one in Virginia to-day better equipped to undertake 
the preparation of such a volume as this, than is the author, having at her 
disposal her own knowledge of the subject as well as the voluminous notes 
of her husband, William G. Stanard (Secretary of the Virginia Historical 
Society and Editor of the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography). 
She has well used the advantages at her disposal and produced a volume of 
great interest and merit. 



IQO Book Reviews. [Jan. 

"This volume is not concerned with public events, but with the private 
and daily lives of people, and the procession of men, women and children of 
every walk in life who troop through its pages fill it with movement and 
color Not only residents of the Old Dominion, but thousands of persons 
scattered about the world to-day will find their Virginia forefathers and fore- 
mothers mentioned here by name. ,.,,.,.. . _ . , , 

The great mass of facts upon which the book is based are not to be found 
in any history, but have been gathered from Colonial diaries, newspapers, 
letters— both social and business — wills, inventories, shopbills, and other docu- 
ments throwing light on private and personal life. Nor has tradition con- 
tributed to its pages: every statement made is a matter of record." The 
beautiful illustrations with which the volume is adorned add graphic interest 
to the illuminative text and the mechanical makeup of the volume is as would 
be expected well up to the high standard of its publishers. We recommend 
the work to all historical, biographical and genealogical libraries. 

The Story of Some French Refugees and Their "Azilum." 1793-1800 
(second edition), by Louise Welles Murray, Past Historian, Tioga Point 
Chapter, Member National Committee for Preservation of Historical Spots 
and Records, N. S. D. A. R., of Athens, Pa. 8vo, cloth and boards, pp. vii+ 
154+4 pages of index, illustrated. Price, $300, postpaid. Address: Author, 
at Athens, Pa. 

The Story of Some French Refugees, 1792-3. and the Asylum they planned 
for their Queen, Marie Antoinette, and themselves in the wilds of Pennsyl- 
vania, was first published in book form in 1903 by the author, a descendant 
of one of the refugees. This settlement, which was a direct outcome of the 
French Revolution although of short duration, forms an interesting and 
romantic chapter in the history of Pennsylvania. Its founders were men of 
prominence in French history, one of whom won many honors in our own 
Revolutionary War. They were assisted by Robert Morris, the financier of 
the American Revolution. Much new and important data having been found, 
also many additional illustrations. This second edition of greater value than 
the first has been issued, and has the most valued and hearty endorsements. 
The author was ably efficient to re-write her original story of Asylum, and 
the result is a valuable addition to any library, a work of reference to the 
student of history and treasure to the lover of historical lore. Recommended 
to all genealogical libraries. 

New York as an Eighteenth Century Municipality. Part I, Prior 
to 1731, by Arthur Everett Peterson, Ph. D. Part II, 1731-1776, by George 
William Edwards, Ph. D. 8vo, cloth, pp. 458, including index, illustrated. 
Published by Longmans, Green & Co., No. 449 Fourth Avenue. New York 
City. Price, $5.00. Address : Publishers. 

"A study of the Colonial municipality based on original sources, with 
illustrations, and appendix of source material and an analytical index. The 
book reveals much interesting and unique information in regard to the early 
political and economic life of the city, and treats of such subjects as trade and 
industry, docks and ferries, fire protection, police, land and streets, and finan- 
cial administration." Recommended to all historical libraries. 

The New York of To-day, by Henry Collins Brown, Editor of Valentine's 
Manual, New York, The Old Colony Press, 15-17 East 40th St., 1917, pp. 287. 
Price, $1.50. 

A handbook of city scenes and impressions written with a vein of humor 
in which the author illustrates the up-to-date city. This series of studies 
harks back to historic times and leads to present-day conditions in a felici- 
tous way. All through the pages there is a happy blend of yesterday and to- 
day. Local color is laid on with a lavish brush and offers inviting prospects 
to the reader. Not simply strangers to the town, for whom essentially this 
guide-book must appeal, but most New Yorkers need the stimulus here pre- 
sented to jog the appetite. Generally fond of the city, they lack the knowl-

Valentine's Manual of the City or New York for 1917-18. Edited by 
Henry Collins Brown. The Old Colony Press, 15 East 40th St., New York 
City. 8vo, pp., including indices, 448. Price, in full leather binding, $10.00; 
in cloth, $5.00. 

It is a trite saying that first impressions go a long way. So true is it 
of the appearance and attractiveness of this, the second of the new series of 
the Manual, that an acknowledgement of the fact would lie in the mind of 
even the casual reader. The binding in blue and gold, inlaid with a sketch 
of the Half-Moon, is appropriate and pleasing, and within the contents dis- 
close a feast of good things, too many, in all conscience, to enumerate. As it 
should, it smacks of the soil — of New York for New Yorkers. The articles 
are well written, the subjects selected with wisdom and the illustrations of 
great merit. Need more be said? Gladly do we note the indices of the two 
issues. They will be invaluable as the years recede. While we feel enthusias- 
tic over the scope of this venture, our opinion has not changed that a Manual 
of the Corporation, from which the idea originated, presupposes the inclusion 
of data concerning the numerous city departments and local institutions, with 
pictures, after the plan Mr. Valentine inaugurated. H. S. M. 

Register of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of 
California A Record of Descent from Passengers on the Good Ship May- 
flower, A. D. 1620 with an Appendix. Vol. I. Compiled from Society Rec- 
ords and edited by Herbert Folger, Historian of the California State Society. 
8vo, cloth, pp. 249, including an excellent name index, illustrated, published 
in San Francisco, Cal., November, 1917. Price, $3.00. Address: Herbert 
Folger, Historian, Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Cali- 
fornia, No. 210 Sansome St.. San Francisco, Cal. 

This volume contains the officially recorded lines of descent of the first 
one hundred members of the California Society of Mayflower Descendants, 
from their original Mayflower ancestor, giving the vital facts of each genera- 
tion to an extent of the detail hitherto not attempted by any Chapter of this 
Society. It is the purpose of this State Branch of the Mayflower Society to 
publish two more volumes of this series in order to bring the publication 
down to and to include its membership to 1918, provided the support given 
to this volume is sufficient to justify the expense. 

The information contained heretofore in the various published Registers 
of the General Society and State Societies of Mayflower Descendants has 
been simply a series of insufficient statements, as for instance that: "John 
Jones is Qth in descent from Elder William Brewster" without any publish- 
ment of the vital facts of each generation by which this descent is proven. 
The consequence is that as genealogical works of reference these various 
Registers have been and are worthless to the members themselves whose 
nams appear therein, and trivial to genealogical students. 

Such being the case, we (representing the advanced mental attitude of 
modern genealogists) welcome this volume of the California Society with 
well merited enthusiasm, as we, for the first time, have before us a group 
of 100 accepted Mayflower pedigrees which we can consult with a certainty 
of obtaining real genealogical facts therein recorded. We do not hesitate 
to say that this initial step is one of the most important ones made by any 
State branch of this truly pioneer society. Every library maintaining a gene- 
alogical section, as well as all libraries of patriotic societies, historical, 
biographical and general reference libraries should without a moment's 
delay secure a copy of this volume and promise their support for all future 
issues. If we to-day had similar published volumes of pedigrees of all the 
past and present members of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, 
such a series of volumes would constitute a library of American genealogical 
reference second to none in this country.

We hope that the good work done by California will be encouraged as 
it deserves to be, and that other states will be stimulated to like action. As 
these volumes appear from time to time, they will improve in the direction of 
greater elaboration of detailed information concerning each generation of 
descent; so that in time the complete vital facts of the earlier four or five 
generations will become perfected entities requiring no further research for 
their establishment. J- K - T, 

Descendants of William Lamson of Ipswich, Mass., 1634-1917. By 
William J. Lamson, M. D. 8vo, cloth, pp. 414, with illustrations and full name 
index. Price, $10.00. Address: the author, 120 Summit Ave., Summit, N. J. 

This book has been in preparation since 1888, and contains the records of 
ten generations of the descendants of William Lamson, the emigrant ancestor, 
as well as many of those collaterally connected with the family. The work is 
issued from the genealogical publishing house of Tobias A. Wright, New York, 
and bears evidence of careful preparation and arrangement. The illustrations, 
consisting of family portraits, old homesteads, etc., are fine, adding much to 
the interest of the publication. We welcome the book to our library and 
recommend it to other collectors of genealogical records. 

A History and Description of the Manufacture of Salt in 
New York State. By Charls J. Werner. 8vo, cloth, pp. 144. Illustrated. 
Price, S7.50. Address: the author, 44 Whitehall St., N. Y. City. 

A valuable contribution to the history of New York. It is ably written by a 
man intimately connected with the great salt industry of the Empire State, 
and at once becomes an authority on the subject treated. 

forthcoming publication. 

Genealogy of the Sherman Family. This record begins with Thomas 
Sherman of Diss, Norfolk, England, who died in 1403, and includes many of 
his descendants of several generations, who lived in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, 
England. Much interesting information about them has been gathered from 
English parish, probate and court records. 

The families in this country included are descendants of the immigrants 
Samuel Sherman, Rev. John Sherman and Captain John Sherman of Water- 
town, Massachusetts, the genealogy of the family of Captain John being the 
most complete. There is also biographical matter relating to Hon. Roger 
Sherman of Connecticut, and others. 

This work has been compiled by Mr. Thomas T. Sherman, 60 Wall St., 
New York, and will soon be published through the genealogical publishing 
house of Tobias A. Wright, New York, with illustrations, including portraits, 
views, facsimiles of documents, signatures, etc. The price to subscribers will 
be ten dollars per copy.

Vol. XLIX. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1918. No. 2 



HON. ABEL I. SMITH. 



Contributed by his Sister, Dora Smith. 



Hon. Abel I. Smith, a valued member of the New York Gen- 
ealogical and Biographical Society since April 13th, 1900, died at 
his home in New York City on December 26th, 1916. He was 
born June 12th, 1843, in the old family homestead at Secaucus, 
Bergen County, New Jersey, where his great-great-grandfather 
Abel 1 Smith of Long Island, New York purchased a tract of land 
on October 24th, 1732, and who in the deed to this land was de- 
scribed as "Abel Smith, Gentleman," This Jersey land has since 
its purchase been continuously possessed and occupied by the direct 
descendants of Abel 1 Smith up to the present day. 

Daniel 2 Smith, son of Abel 1 Smith, served with honor in the 
Revolutionary War as a member of Col. Oliver Spencer's famous 
Cavalry Regiment. 

His son John 3 Smith was the father of Abel I. 4 Smith who 
served in the War of 1812 and later held positions of honor and 
trust in Hudson and Bergen Counties, New Jersey. 

It is recorded of Abel 4 Smith that as a matter of conscience 
he freed his slaves before the law was passed which abolished slav- 
ery in New Jersey. He also cared generously for his freed slaves 
during their life time. One of these former slaves attained the 
age of 102 years, and the subject of this sketch Abel I. 5 Smith 
charged himself with the burial of eleven of them. 

Abel I. 4 Smith died in 1865 a venerated citizen of his county. 
He was one of the few persons honored by Robert Stevens and 
John Stevens in 1820 with a pass for life over the Hoboken ferries. 
The original "Pass" in the handwriting of Mr. Stevens is still in 
the possession of the family. It reads "Abel I. Smith, and his 
wife, if he gets one." 

Abel I. 4 Smith married Prudence Cary and Abel I. 5 Smith, the 
subject of this sketch, was their son, who proved himself a worthy 
descendant of these honorable progenitors. 

Abel I. 5 Smith entered the Junior Class of Rutgers College in 
i860, from which college he was graduated with honor in 1862. 
His preparation had been most thorough having been under the 
tutorship of Rev. Dr. William Mabon for eight years. 



106 Hon. Abel I. Smith. [April 

He studied law with J. Dickinson Miller of Jersey City and 
was admitted to the bar of New Jersey as an Attorney in June, 
1866, becoming a Counsellor in 1873. 

"He was one of the acknowledged leaders of the Hudson 
County Bar and one of the foremost lawyers of East Jersey, — a 
learned, fair minded and conscientious citizen. Few men achieved 
the distinction in both professional and private life which he en- 
joyed." His practise was confined almost entirely to civil suits in 
the Court of Chancery and in the Circuit, Supreme and Orphan's 
Court and in the Court of Errors and Appeals. 

In 1894 he was admitted to the bar of the United States Cir- 
cuit and District Courts of New Jersey. 

He was a Republican in politics and for many years a leader 
of that party in his native county. In 1869 he was elected to the 
Legislature from the then 8th Assembly District of Hudson 
County, comprising North Bergen, West Hoboken, Weehawken 
and the township of Union, being the first Republican chosen from 
that district and the only one from that county in the Legislature 
of 1870; he declined to serve again. 

In 1888 Governor Green appointed him Judge of the District 
Court of Hoboken, which office he filled with dignity until 1891 
and in 1898 was again appointed to the same position by Governor 
Griggs. 

He was an eminently public spirited citizen interested in all that 
pertained to the welfare of his county and state. He served for 
four years as President of the Hudson County Branch of the State 
Charities Aid Association, and was a member of the "Committee 
on Laws" of the State Association. 

He was a friend of the poor and needy, always ready to extend 
the helping hand to those less favored than himself not only with 
material gifts but with legal counsel, as many could testify. 

He was married on December 7, 1870, to Laura, daughter of 
Martin A. Howell of New Brunswick, New Jersey. 

Three children survive him, viz.: Abel I. Smith, 3rd, Mrs. 
James B. Mabon and Mrs. Ralph C. Carroll. He is also survived 
by one sister, Miss Dora Smith. 

He was devoted to his family and in his beautiful home had col- 
lected a rare library.- One of his most valued books is an ancient 
family Bible in which is recorded the birth of his ancestress Mary 
Bailey in St. Philip's Parish, Bristol, England, in 1653, whose de- 
scendant Deborah Udall, was the wife of Abel Smith, 1st, of Long 
Island, whom she married in 1716 at Jamaica, L. I. 

He was also an antiquarian possessing a rare collection of old 
gold coins dating from 1682 to 1800, which collection descended 
to him from his ancestors. 

He was a loyal member of the Dutch Reformed Church, an 
humble Christian, gentle, courteous and kind, the soul of honor 
and truth, and of incorruptible integrity, — in fact "That noblest 
work of God, an honest man."

Minden was set off in 1798, and from which it was enlarged in 
I849 t0 > LS present limits.

EPHER WHITAKER OF SOUTHOLD, LONG ISLAND. 



Contributed by Herbert C. Whitaker. 



Rev. Dr. Epher Whitaker was born in Fairfield Township, Cum- 
berland Co., New Jersey, March 27, 1820, and died in Southold, 
New York, September 1, 1916. His parents were Reuel Whitaker 
and Sarah Westcott. His grandparents were Nathaniel Whitaker 
and Lydia Whitaker, first cousins to each other; John Westcott, 
an officer in the War of 1812, and his second wife, Mary Bennett. 
His great-grandparents were Ambrose Whitacar and Freelove Strat- 
ton ; Lewis Whitacar, brother of Ambrose, and Anna Thompson ; 
Samuel Westcott, a captain in the Revolution and Hannah Shaw ; 
Jeremiah Bennett, also a captain in the Revolutionary War and 
Sarah Berryman. 

Ambrose and Lewis Whitacar were sons of Nathaniel Whitacar 
by his first wife, Mary (Abbot) Dixon, widow of Anthony Dixon 
and daughter of Thomas and Ruth (Sheppard) Abbot. Nathaniel 
Whitacar was the son of Richard Whitacar who came from Lon- 
don, England, to Salem, New Jersey, in 1675. Richard Whitacar's 
wife was Elizabeth (Provoe) Adkin, daughter of George Provoe, 
who also came from London to Salem, N. J., about 1675. 

Freelove Stratton was a great-aunt of Governor Stratton of 
New Jersey; she was a daughter of Benjamin Stratton and Abigail 
Preston. Benjamin was the grandson of Richard Stratton of South- 
ampton, Long Island (1643), and his wife Elizabeth Edwards, 
daughter of William and Ann Edwards of Lynn (1641) and East 
Hampton (1650). Abigail Preston's ancestry included Roger Pres- 
ton of Ipswich, Mass. (1639), John Russell, known as "the Ana- 
baptist," founder of the first Baptist Church of Boston, and Hen-y 
Brooks of Concord, Mass. (1639), and of Woburn (1650). 

Anna Thompson, wife of Lewis Whitacar, was the daughter of 
Benjamin Thompson and Anna Newcomb. Benjamin, born in 
Rhode Island, was the grandson of the poet Dr. Benjamin Tompson 
and Susanna Kirtland of Braintree, Mass. Dr. Tompson was the 
son of Rev. William Tompson and his first wife Abigail Collins, 
daughter of John Collins and Abigail Rose. Anna Newcomb was 
descended from the Martha's Vineyard families of Newcomb, Bayes, 
Butler and Norton. 

Captain Samuel Westcott was the grandson of Daniel Westcott, 
for many terms a member of the Hartford, Conn., Legislature, and 
his wife Abigail Gaylord, daughter of Samuel Gaylord (son of 
William) and Elizabeth Hull (daughter of George Hull). Daniel 
Westcott was the son of Richard Westcott of Wethersfield, Conn. 
O637), who was given a grant of land for his services in the War 
against the Pequot Indians. 



I I 8 Epher Whitaker of Southold, Long Island. [April 

Hannah Shaw, wife of Capt. Samuel Westcott, was descended 
from Edward Shaw of Southampton, Long Island (1655) and from 
Joshua Garlick who came to Easthampton about 1650 and died there 
in 1700, over one hundred years old. 

Capt. Jeremiah Bennett's grandfather was one of a company of 
settlers who came in 1697 from Fairfield, Conn., in Cohansey, Salem 
Co., N. J., and gave the name Fairfield to the large district in which 
they settled. 

Sarah Berryman was the great-granddaughter of Thomas Berry- 
man and his wife Jane of Staten Island (1686). 

The emigrant ancestors of Epher Whitaker all came to America 
before 1700. 

Epher Whitaker lived on his father's farm in Fairfield Township, 
Cumberland Co., N. J., and attended the public schools there until 
he was fifteen years of age (in 1835) when he went to Bridgeton, 
N. J., and worked in all departments of the Bridgeton Chronicle. In 
1843, he entered Delaware College at Newark, Delaware, and in 
1847 graduated at the head of his class with the degree of A. B., 
later receiving from this college the degree of A. M. (in 1850) and 
the degree of D. D. (in 1877). Yale conferred on him the honorary 
degree of A. M. in 1867. After graduating at Delaware College, he 
taught for a year in the Academy of the College amd in 1848 en- 
tered the Union Theological Seminary in New York, graduating in 
1851. He at once became the pastor of the Presbyterian Church in 
Southold, Suffolk Co., Long Island, the oldest Presbyterian Church 
in America and continued in that position until 1892, when after 
forty years of successful service in one pastorate, he retired. From 
that date until his death he was the pastor emeritus. His faithful 
work for the improvement of his fellow men was not discontinued, 
and so great was the esteem in which he was held that he was often 
called "Suffolk's Grand Old Man". 

As a part of his pastoral work, he collected in 1866 and 1867 
the funds with which to buy the grounds and erect the buildings of 
the Southold Academy which was opened for instruction in 1867, 
and is now endowed in perpetuity. 

During most of Dr. Whitaker's pastorate, he preached four 
times a week besides conducting other religious services. He was 
from 1856 to 1903 the Stated Clerk of the Presbytery of Long 
Island; for thirty years he was present at every annual meeting of 
the Synod of which he was a member and after the Synod of New 
York became a body of delegates of the Presbyteries, he served in 
five annual meetings of this great Synod. He was Moderator of the 
Synod of New Jersey in 1860-1 and of the Synod of Long Island 
in 1871-2. 

His diversions from his pastoral work were mainly in the fields 
of literature, poetry, history and antiquarian research. 

In 1865, he published a volume of addresses and sermons on 
educational, patriotic and other themes under the title New Fruits

from an Old Field. In 1880, he delivered an elaborate historical ad- 
dress at the bi-centennial anniversary of the organization of the 
church in Fairfield, N. J., and this address was published in octavo 
form. The following year he published History of Southold; its 
First Century from 1640-1740. The preparation of this volume ex- 
tended over twenty years and the sources carefully used include 
the records of the Church, of the Town and of the New Haven 
Colony ; legal documents, family registers, various Histories of Long 
Island ; published and unpublished genealogies, many volumes in 
the Astor Library and the collections of the Long Island Historical 
Society and other societies. Many historians, biographers and 
genealogists gave aid in the preparation of the volume, which at 
once took a position of authority on the subject treated. 

During the next few years, he superintended the printing and 
read the proofs of the Town Records of Southold for the 150 years 
from 165 1 onward. This proof he compared not only word for 
word, but letter for letter with the faded, antique manuscript rec- 
ords of Southold ; by the authority of the Town Clerk, these printed 
records were made of the same legal evidence as the original ; they 
were printed in two large volumes with an introduction by Dr. 
Whitaker to each volume, appearing severally in 1882 and 1884. 

In 1883 he published a historical sketch of Suffolk County. 

He proposed the celebration of the 250th anniversary of the 
Town of Southold which took place in 1890. Dr. Whitaker was 
made the Chairman of the joint committees, wrote the historical and 
descriptive introduction and edited the volume of proceedings, a 
volume of 220 large octavo pages. As an outcome of this celebra- 
tion, a handsome granite monument to commemorate the founders 
was erected in the cemetery. 

In 1894, Dr. Whitaker published Leaves of All Seasons, a col- 
lection of lyrics written at different times from 1851 to 1893. It in- 
cludes translations into English verse made from eminent French 
and German poets. 

At various times Dr. Whitaker delivered historical addresses be- 
fore the New Haven Colony Historical Society and the Suffolk 
County Historical Society, which were published. He wrote his- 
torical and biographical articles which were published in cyclopaedias 
of the highest character, including the Britanica. Throughout his 
life he contributed to the press and had published uncounted articles 
in daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual periodicals. Prayers 
from his pen for devotional exercises and many of his sermons and 
addresses have been published. 

In 1886, he was prominent in the organization of the Suffolk 
County Historical Society. This society from its organization until 
his death annually elected him its first vice-president. When the 
Long Island Historical Society held its first annual meeting in 
1863, he was elected one of its councilors and held that position until 
his death. He was one of the five honorary members of the New 
Haven Colony Historical Society.

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society made 
him a Corresponding Member in 1869, soon after its organization. 
Many references to his published writings are given in the pages of 
the Record of this Society. Two extensive contributions were made 
to the Record by Dr. Whitaker; the first a ten page biography of 
Charles B. Moore in Volume XXV, pages 105 to 115 ; the second an 
eight page article on the Founders of Southold in Volume XXVI, 
pages 85 to 89 and 114 to 118.

148 Incidents in the History of the Thorn Family. [April 



INCIDENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE THORN 

FAMILY. 



Contributed by Katharine Twining Moody. 



By some chance historical articles treating of the Thome, or 
Thorn, family have failed to notice either the antecedents or the 
descendants of a Jonathan Thorn who married Catharine Living- 
ston, daughter of Gilbert Livingston and Cornelia Beekman, and 
granddaughter of the first Robert Livingston and Alida Schuyler, 
although he undoubtedly belonged to that branch of the Long 
Island Thorne family which settled in Dutchess County, New 
York. 

This appears strange for the grandchildren of Jonathan Thorn 
and Catharine Livingston were numerous, including among their 
number the well-known Colonel Herman Thorn of New York City, 
later of Paris, France, where he was styled the "American Prince," 
and Jonathan Thorn, the second, who served as lieutenant in the 
United States Navy at Tripoli, and who figured still more promi- 
nently and tragically as leader of the Astoria expedition. 

Records, public and private, show that the first Jonathan Thorn 
was a citizen of Dutchess County ; was commissioned Second Lieu- 
tenant of Militia in the British service from Beekman Precinct, 
February ist, 1758, in the company of Myndert Viele; that he 
was a Tory to the extent of refusing to sign the "Articles of Asso- 
ciation," and was listed first among the disaffected persons of Dut- 
chess County, and later as a prisoner. (Hasbrouck's History of 
Dutchess County, p. 102; New York in the Revolution, Supple- 
ment, p. 241.) 

Family tradition maintained that he died in prison during the 
Revolution, and in corroboration of this, we find recorded, in con- 
nection with the burial records of other prisoners of war, in the 
Center Church Burying Ground of Hartford, Connecticut, this 
item: Jonathan Thorn, November 14, 1777, aged 53. {Connecticut 
Magazine, vol. 4, p. 417.) 

His wife, Catharine Livingston, had died in 1769, leaving several 
children, two of whom were Samuel Gilbert and Catharine, — the 
latter married in New York City, April 25, 1795, Horace Johnson, 
son of Asahel Johnson and Eunice Wetmore, of Middletown, Con- 
necticut. (Trinity Church Records.) 

Cornelia Thorn, daughter of Jonathan, mentioned in the will of 
Catharina Tenbroeck, doubtless was another child. (New York 
Historical Society, Abstracts of Wills, vol. 9, p. 307. 

Samuel Gilbert Thorn, the second son, was born in Poughkeep- 
sie, Sept. 27, 1754; died at Flushing, L. I., Aug. 12, 1823. He 
married, April 26, 1778, Helena Van Slyck and had fifteen children

1918.J Incidents in the History of the Thorn Family. 149 

as follows: Jonathan, Adam Van Slyck, Herman, Robert Living- 
ston, Samuel, James Van Slyck (died in infancy), Catharine Liv- 
ingston, James Van Slyck, Jane Van Slyck, Cornelia, John Van 
Eps, Eliza Glen, Helenah, Gilbert and Samuel Gilbert. (Upon the 
authority of a descendant of Colonel Herman Thorn.) 

We do not know whether the sympathies of Jonathan Thorn, 
the elder, were altogether with the British, — probably not, since 
his family associations were with the Livingstons, men prominently 
identified with the American cause. Jonathan Thorn was not, so 
far as we may tell from records, guarded for any act against the 
colonies, and it would appear possible that his previous military 
service under British appoinment made him unwilling to turn against 
the crown. 

Fate dealt unkindly with the two Jonathans, and while the 
story of the elder Thorn is almost wholly unknown, we cannot help 
wondering whether the unyielding traits of character, which in the 
end cost the life of the younger Thorn were not in some degree 
present in the disposition of his grandfather. 

The register of the St. Nicholas Society for 1895 records the 
marriage of Catharine Livingston, daughter of Gilbert, to Thomas 
Thorn. This mistake may doubtless be traced to an acceptance of 
incorrect entries in the family record entitled "The Livingstons of 
Livingston Manor," p. 548. There the marriage reads Thomas, 
with note of another authority Stephen. Cornelius Livingston, 
son of Gilbert, in his will, dated July 28, 1757, mentions his sis- 
ter Catharine Thome. (New York Historical Society, Abstracts 
of Wills, vol. 6, p. 130). Again, Mr. Frank Allaben, in his life of 
John Watts De Peyster, notes this marriage of Catharine Living- 
ston to Jotham Thorn, — the latter obviously a printer's mistake. 
There can be no question of the real name of this Thorn, for in 
the unpublished register of the Dutch Reformed Church of Pough- 
keepsie, there appears the baptismal record of Cathrina Thorn, 
daughter of Jonathan Thorn and Cathrina Livingston, May 25, 
1769; witnessed by Gilbert Livingston and Catharine Crannel, his 
wife. 

Reuben Gold Thwaites, in his annotations of Franchere's Nar- 
rative of a Voyage to the West Coast of America, 1811-1814, thus 
characterizes the second Thorn : 

"Captain Jonathan Thorn had been a subaltern in the American 
navy. Enlisting as a midshipman, April 28, 1800, he served in the 
Mediterranean squadron, and in 1803, was acting lieutenant on the 
Enterprise, Stephen Decatur commanding. In the daring exploit 
of destroying the President in the harbor of Tripoli, Thorn had 
an active part; and three months later commanded the gun-boat 
"Number 4" in the bombardment of Tripoli harbor. After this 
action, he was commended for gallantry by Decatur in the highest 
terms, and placed in charge of one of the prize boats. February 
16, 1807, he was promoted to a lieutenancy, and furloughed May 
18, 1810, in order to command the Tonquin. His conduct during 
the cruise of this vessel has been much censured. Alexander Ross, 



I 50 An Inquiry into the Authenticity of the Portrait of Mary Ball, [April 

whose narrative is published as vol. 7 of our series (Early Ameri- 
can Travels) is bitter in his denunciation. Irving, in Astoria, makes 
apologies for Thorn, and shows that his conduct proceeded from a 
sense of duty to his employer (John Jacob Astor) and a desire for 
naval discipline somewhat too strenuous for a merchant vessel 
with passengers. Franchere sought to be just to Thorn, but his 
sympathies were with the Astorians. Thorn's tragic fate doubtless 
deprived the United States of a naval officer of unusual ability and 
integrity." 

The Tonquin sailed from New York, September 7, 1810; it 
sank off the coast of Oregon in the summer of 181 1, when Jonathan 
Thorn, his brother James and practically the entire crew were mur- 
dered by the Indians. 

The details of this expedition may be found in : Washington 
Irving's Astoria, ch. 4-1 1; Gabriel Franchere's Narrative of a 
Voyage to the Northzvest Coast of America; John Dunn's History 
of Oregon Territory, pp. 221-223 ; and Alexander Ross's Adven- 
tures of the First Settlers on the Oregon or Columbia River, 
1810-1813. 

Regardless of the merits of the case, this adventure of Jonathan 
Thorn the younger is one of the picturesque events in American 
western coast history.

AN INQUIRY INTO THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE 

PORTRAIT OF MARY BALL, THE MOTHER OF 

WASHINGTON. 



Bv Charles Henrv Hart. 






As men are supposed to inherit their most dominant and sterl- 
ing qualities from the mother, there is always an unquenchable 
desire to look upon the face of her who has given to the world a 
notable man among men and to learn of the personal characteristics 
of that woman who has thus endowed her son. If this is a com- 
mon desire toward those who have made a place for themselves 
in the history of the world, how much keener is the feeling when 
that woman stands before the world as the Mother of George 
Washington, the mere mention of whose name brings the glow of 
patriotism to the cheek of every American and to whom the whole 
earth bows in awe, reverence and admiration. Yet, until this year, 
when an even century and a quarter closes around her grave, we 
have had no authenticated portrait of Mary Ball, the wife of 
Augustine Washington, to which to do this homage.

MARY BALL WASHINGTON 



iqi8.] The Mother of Washington. ki 

On April 5th, 1914, Mr. W. Lanier Washington, of New York 
City, who is sixth in descent from Mary Ball Washington and the 
present representative of the Washington family, as also the suc- 
cessor of Washington in the Society of the Cincinnati, submitted 
to me a portrait of an aged woman, full face to left, with frilled 
cap, painted on coarse canvas, 18 x 21 inches, for my opinion as to 
its authorship and subject. After having the picture in my pos- 
session for a fortnight, during which time I gave it constant and 
careful study, I returned it with my unqualified opinion that it is 
a veritable authentic portrait of Mary Ball Washington, painted 
from life, in 1786, by Robert Edge Pine and for the following 
reasons. 

The authorship of the painting was perfectly clear to me from the 
first, from my study and familiarity with the work of Robert Edge 
Pine, who was a British painter, born in 1730, and removed to this 
country in 1784, settling in Philadelphia where he died, November 
19, 1788. After painting portraits of Robert Morris and of Francis 
Hopkinson, in Philadelphia, Pine visited Mount Vernon, armed 
with letters of introduction from these two gentlemen and Wash- 
ington, on April 28, 1785, enters in his Diary, Pine's arrival "in 
order to take my picture from life." Pine remained the guest of 
Washington for three weeks and when he left, on May 19th, he 
carried with him letters of high commendation from Washington 
to Governor William Paca and Colonel Edward Lloyd, of Mary- 
land, with which Pine repaired to Annapolis, where he painted many 
portraits and family pieces. From Annapolis Pine wrote to Wash- 
ington, December 16, 1785, sending his account for five frames and 
a present, to Mrs. Washington, of a portrait he had painted of her 
niece Fanny Bassett, but then recently married to the son of Wash- 
ington's brother Charles. These Washington acknowledged to 
Pine, February 26, 1786, with warm thanks from himself and from 
Mrs. Washington. 

In addition to the portraits of Washington and of Fanny Bas- 
sett, Pine painted, at Mount Vernon, portraits of Mrs. Washing- 
ton's three grandchildren, Elizabeth, aged nine years, Eleanor, aged 
six years, and George Washington Parke Custis, aged four years. 
The first and last of these portraits, each on canvas of the same size 
and coarseness as the portrait under consideration, are in the Gen- 
eral G. W. C. Lee collection at Washington and Lee University, 
Lexington, Va. From Annapolis, Pine went to Virginia, where he 
painted many portraits, amongst others that of General Horatio 
Gates, now in the Alexander Smith Cochran collection at Phillipse 
Manor House, Yonkers, N. Y., and that of General "Light Horse" 
Harry Lee, owned by the President of the Pennsylvania Academy of 
Fine Arts, Philadelphia. 

From the preceding facts it is clear that Pine was painting in 
Virginia, in 1786, two years before the death of Mary Ball Wash- 
ington, when she was approaching four score years, which is the age, 
as well as one can judge, of the face shown on the canvas in 
question. 



I c 2 An Inquiry into the Authenticity of the Portrait of Mary Ball, [April 

The correspondence between Washington and Pine and others 
which I have used, show not only that the "Father of his Country" 
appreciated Pine as a man but also as an artist, which is confirmed, 
in a practical manner, by his sitting for his own portrait and having 
his wife's three grandchildren painted by him. To yet further em- 
phasize his friendship for Pine, Washington commends him by let- 
ter to his friends Paca and Lloyd, of Maryland, and it is not at all 
unlikely that, when Pine went to Virginia, Washington may have 
given him a letter to his mother with a request that she would sit for 
her portrait. Not finding such a letter in the Washington manu- 
scripts, in the Library of Congress, where those that I have cited 
are, is no proof or even implication that none was written, as the 
collection, wonderfully rich as it is, is far from complete. Wash- 
ington did not preserve copies of all of his letters ; and many of his 
drafts of letters as well as letters to him were separated from the 
collection, before it became the property of the government, and are 
in private hands to-day. 

The crucial question however remains to be determined. Is the 
portrait, under consideration, painted by Robert Edge Pine on the 
very coarse canvas he habitually used, the likeness of Mary Ball, 
the Mother of Washington ? Upon this point there is, of course, not 
any direct evidence, — there seldom or ever is in such cases ; but cir- 
cumstantial evidence, here a little and there a little, corroborating 
each other into an indestructible web, is generally very much 
more satisfactory and convincing than direct evidence which is usu- 
ally conflicting and is apt to err in its very postiveness, which if 
weak in one link breaks the whole chain. Were this not so the large 
number of portraits of Washington that are submitted to me, with 
positive assurance that they, each one and all, were painted from 
life by Gilbert Stuart and usually presented by Washington himself, 
could not so easily be shown not to have been painted by Stuart nor 
in Washington's lifetime. To answer the question we have the cir- 
cumstance recited connecting Washington and Pine intimately to- 
gether, and also the fact that Pine was in Virginia, when Mary 
Ball Washington was living at Fredericksburg. We have also the 
important fact that this portrait is painted by Robert Edge Pine; 
and it may be well to add that it is a portrait painted from life, and 
also an extremely good example of Pine's work at his best, being 
firmly handled and decisive in its execution, which qualities are 
lacking in some of the American portraits that he painted. We have 
no other authentic portrait of Mary Ball Washington with which to 
compare this one, although there are three others claiming acknowl- 
edgement, — two of which, that may be called the Morse and the 
Middleton portraits, investigation has shown to have no claim to 
authenticity, while the third has yet to be vindicated with little like- 
lihood of success. As to the portrait under consideration no one re- 
garding it can help but see, involuntarily, its general resemblance to 
the well-known lineaments and distinguishing characteristics of the 
portraits of the Father of his Country, which has caused the not in- 
frequent comment that it looks like a portrait of Washington with 



iqi8.] The Mother of Washington. I 53 

the addition of a cap ; and to disabuse any one's mind of this false 
idea, I will say that it is an absolutely homogeneous painting, that is, 
all painted at the same period or virtually at the same time. 

In determining portraiture it is always the ensemble that con- 
trols. When one considers a portrait to decide whether it is like 
the subject or not, it is not the mouth nor the nose nor the eyes that 
are first considered, but the general likeness ; and after that is 
settled, the general dissection takes place either pro or con. Some 
times the history of a portrait, if authentic may be helpful in iden- 
tifying its subject, but in this case the pedigree of the portrait does 
not begin until sixty-one years after the putative subject's death, 
although this comparatively short lapse of time weighs in its favor 
in that persons were then living who could have seen and known 
Mary Washington. 

This is the history of the portrait as given to me by Mr. Wash- 
ington : — Doctor Shearjashub Spooner, of New York, the author 
of the well-known Biographical and Critical Dictionary of Painters, 
Engravers, Sculptors and Architects, found this portrait in Fred- 
ericksburg, Va., in 1850, where tradition said it was the portrait of 
Mary Ball Washington and as such he purchased it and brought 
the portrait to New York. Unfortunately the name of the former 
owner has not been preserved, but the portrait was valued by its 
previous owner for it had been relined with another canvas at a 
period long anterior to 1850, judging from the age of the relining can- 
vas, which relining itself shows that the portrait was considered of 
importance. On the death of Doctor Spooner, in 1859, the picture 
passed to his widow and on her death, in 1875, it became the property 
of her sister, Mrs. Adaline D. Townsend, wife of Henry P. Town- 
send, who resided at 306 Madison Avenue, N. Y. Mrs. Townsend 
gave the portrait to Doctor Spooner's kinsman, Dr. Albert A. Davis 
of 149 East 63rd Street, N. Y., from whom Mr. Washington pur- 
chased it March 20, 1905. After it came into Mr. Washington's 
possession he showed it to Mr. George Washington Ball, of Wash- 
ington, D. C, a descendant of Mary Ball Washington both lineally 
and collaterally, who died January 9, 1912, at the age of eighty-four, 
and he recognized it as a portrait he had seen, in Fredericksburg, in 
his youth, as a portrait of his ancestress Mary Ball Washington. It 
is of great importance to note that for the last sixty-four years this 
portrait has been in the possession of persons of consideration and 
social prominence in the community in which they lived, which is 
a ruling factor in the pedigrees of a painting or other objet d'art, 
It is therefore from my investigations and researches into the history 
of this painting and from my familiarity with portraiture in general 
and in the portraiture of Washington in particular that I arrive at 
the conclusion that this is a true authentic portrait of Mary Ball, 
the Mother of Washington, painted from life by Robert Edge Pine 
circa 1786.

continuance. This war with its awful sacrifice is now entering upon 
its fourth year. It is estimated that four millions of Germans have 
been killed and wounded and every family in Germany has lost one 
or more of its members, but the Kaiser and his six sons have still 
undisputed leadership and vigorous health. They have stayed on 
shore. ( Laughter. ) 

We have never appreciated fully how much of history and the 
instructive teaching of it there is in portraiture. Important events 
follow each other so rapidly in the story of nations and periods 
overlap which are so full of heroes and men of genius in every 
walk in life, of evolution and revolution, that it is impossible with 
the enormous exactions of our busy times to keep properly familiar 
with the past. We are making history now every day and world 
history of such importance that the whole world is to be, as a result 
of this tragedy, so reconstructed that future generations will make 
a new start from this war and what has resulted, and care little what 
preceded it. The Civil War led for a generation to an absolute 
forgetfulness of the Revolution and what it stood for. 

Very few of us have the leisure to explore the library, but a 
portrait always interests and arouses inquiry. Two conspicuous 
examples are Washington and Lincoln. Stuart's portrait of Wash- 
ington and Carpenter's of Lincoln have been accepted as the two best 
presentations of those great men while in life. They are in all the 
school books, all the histories, every library, museum and State Capi- 
tol, and on frequent occasions illumine the pages of the daily and 
weekly newspapers and also the magazines. There is no doubt that 
this constant reproduction to the eye of youth, middle age and old 
age, of Washington and Lincoln keep before each generation the 
story of the founding of our Republic, of the emancipation of the 
slave and of the reconstruction of our nation. Every child, who has 
arrived at school age, can point to a picture of Washington or of 
Lincoln with full knowledge of their lives and deeds. This method 
of teaching is as old as the human race. Sign language gives evi- 
dence of this in the pictures the cave man sketched or carved upon 
the walls of his primitive abode, which are illustrations of the educa- 
tional efforts of our ancestors millions of years ago. 

The sculptor is far more limited than the portrait painter. We 
have a recent example of a controversy which would never have 
arisen in the case of a portrait, because the sitting impresses the 
personality of the subject upon the artist. In this recent statue of 
Lincoln, the sculptor, of course, never saw him, but has endeavored 
with great talent to present in one figure Lincoln's divergent charac- 
teristics. I knew him very well and saw him in several moods. He 
never got away from his early trials, experiences and influences. 
He was normally always the country lawyer, the inimitable story 
teller, the keen politician and shrewd man of affairs. On the other 
hand, he was an idealist of the loftiest sentiments and the tenderest 
sympathies and emotions. The artist has endeavored to convey in 
metal these characteristics, but to grasp the idea one must have 
imagination and see what the artist unquestionably was impressed by 



I 68 Presentation of the Portrait of Hon. Chauncey Mitchell Depeiv [April 

in his study of Lincoln's character. Such a statue cannot be an 
accurate portrait. What we always want is the man as his family, 
his friends and his neighbors knew him. 

There was a famous inquiry which went, years and years ago, 
through the country, and that was, "What becomes of all the pins ?" 
Quite as important a one is, "What becomes of all the portraits?" 
There is nothing that disappears so rapidly as a family portrait. The 
children look at it, they care for it, but the grandchildren — it is 
nothing to them ; and the great-grandchildren don't care anything 
about it except they have a genealogical craze and want to accumu- 
late a lot of those things on the walls. But the family portrait, as a 
rule, is sent to the garret, from there to the junk shop and then into 
the dust bin. You can go into junk and antiquarian shops all over 
New York and find family portraits which they will sell to you for 
the frame. But if the portrait happens to find a place in some society 
which has permanence, into some institution which will live, then 
there is an opportunity for the man or the woman who was painted 
to have the illustration of his or her life teach its lesson. But there 
has become a new view and value of the portrait. All the distin- 
guished men and women, and the men and women of no distinction 
whatever, but who had the money, who were painted in the period 
of Sir Joshua Reynolds, Gainsborough, Raeburn, Romney and Hop- 
ner, have portraits which are of incalculable value. A Sir Joshua 
brings one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars, a Gainsbor- 
ough one hundred thousand, and so on down to the lowest — 
twenty-five thousand dollars. I trust, Mr. Qvistgaard, the day will 
come when yours will be as valuable. 

There are numerous families in the old world, I know many of 
them, where the fortune has been dissipated and the family saved 
by the family portraits. The ancestor, either by grants from the 
King or by his extraordinary genius in some line, accumulates a 
vast fortune. Then he buys his great estate with its forests, hunting 
preserves, meadows and palace in town. In natural course his son 
succeeds, and is followed by the grandson and the great-grandson. 
By that time the fortune has been impaired and the estate mort- 
gaged, but upon the walls are the Sir Joshua, the Gainsborough and 
other masters, and that heir, facing bankruptcy, capitalizes his ances- 
tors. It is one of the wonders of modern finance. 

I know of an instance where, through no fault of his own, a dis- 
tinguished member of the British House of Lords, in consequence of 
the extravagance of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather, 
found his estate so mortgaged and encumbered that he could not 
meet even the interest upon the debts. What to do he did not know. 
He was in despair, when one day a picture dealer called and said, 
"My Lord, I understand you have a famous Sir Joshua. May I 
look at it ?" "All right," he said. So he went in, and my lord coming 
in a few minutes afterwards, saw the picture dealer taking this pic- 
ture down. He said, "What are you doing?" "Why," the dealer 
answered, "an American client of mine has heard of that picture and 
is exceedingly anxious to have it, and I am taking it to him." "Sir, 



1918.] to the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. I 69 

I don't sell my ancestors." The picture dealer laid on the piano 
twenty thousand pounds in new crisp Bank of England notes and 
then took the picture under his arm and started for the door. My 
lord said afterwards to a friend, in narrating the occurrence, "I 
wanted to stop him, but I had to have the money." (Laughter.) 

I remember when a series of portraits were used as a picturesque 
and effective argument. President Harrison sent for me to come to 
Washington. When I arrived, the Hon. Stephen B. Elkins, who 
was Secretary of War, called upon me with a message from the 
President. "The President wants you," he said, "to accept the 
position of Secretary of State in his Cabinet, Mr. Blaine having 
resigned." When I explained to him that it was impossible for me at 
that time to make such a sudden change in my life, he said, "Let's 
take a walk." He conducted me over to the offices of the Secretary 
of State and then pointed to the portraits, beginning with Thomas 
Jefferson, of those who had held that position. He said, "You will 
notice that in the line of the Secretaries of State, there is more dis- 
tinction in statesmanship and ability than in the line of Presidents of 
the United States. To be in that line is fame." 

My friends, I want to congratulate my friend, Dr. Dexter, upon 
his delightful address. Really, I have heard a great many talks at 
Yale commencements on Yale's past, but I never heard anything so 
informing and so delicious as the bits of student history which 
came up under that picture which was drawn so deftly by my dis- 
tinguished friend. But I felt also about it a bit of embarrassment, 
because when your President asked me to come here for the unveil- 
ing of this picture, he said, "I have selected for the time when your 
picture will be unveiled and when you will make some remarks in 
regard to it, the day when Dr. Dexter from Yale is to speak to us 
about conditions in college a hundred years ago." (Laughter.) Well, 
the Lord has treated me very well, both in vigor and health, but I 
want to assure you, ladies and gentlemen, I am not in that class. 
( Laughter. ) I hope to be and certainly am using every effort in my 
power so that when the next professor, or the professor himself, I 
trust, extends his remarks and his stories of student life at Yale a 
hundred years ago, I can sit on the platform and say, "Yes, I know 
all about that, I was there." (Laughter.) 

Our meeting today is an illustration in a minor way of our 
national situation and popular characteristics. A militaristic and 
autocratic government trains its people from the cradle to the grave 
primarily for service to the State. When war comes civil life prac- 
tically ceases, and the thought and power of the people is concen- 
trated on the contest. We, on the contrary, have developed as 
individuals and our thinking and our efforts are along peaceful lines. 

We are in the greatest and most savage war of all times, and our 
civilization and institutions are at stake. In our first six months, 
we have recruited half as many men and spent four times as much 
money as Lincoln did during the whole Civil War. Our hearts are 
enlisted and our minds are intent upon victory. Nevertheless, the 
ways of normal peaceful living are so deeply imbedded that we take 



I 70 Genealogical Gleanings from La?id and Probate Records at [April

GENEALOGICAL GLEANINGS FROM LAND AND 

PROBATE RECORDS AT WHITE PLAINS AND 

RYE, NEW YORK. 

With Descriptive Map.* 



!COLLECTED AND CONTRIBUTED BY THERESA HALL BRISTOL. 



The following items of genealogical information have been put 
together with the hope of helping the genealogist searching in West- 
chester county, where so few vital records, either church or town, 
are obtainable; and an effort has been made not to repeat what 
has already been published in the several histories of the county, in 
Baird's History of Rye, and in our own Record. 

The records of Rye are at Port Chester. The first volume is 
missing, but there are three volumes of land and one of town rec- 
ords, and, as White Plains was a part of Rye, the earlier land tran- 
sactions of White Plains are included among them. These have 
been thoroughly written up in Baird's history. As Rye was, for 
a short time, in the Connecticut Colony, some of the early probate 
records are at Fairfield and probably at other places in Connecti- 
cut. The earliest Eastchester records are at Tuckahoe, and those of 
the districts annexed to New York City are in the office of the 
City Comptroller, Municipal building, New York City. There are 
at White Plains, the land records dating back to 1687; the probate 
records after Revolutionary times ; also, in the County Clerk's office, 
an old County Road Book dating from 1723 to 1773, several Books 
of Common Pleas, dating from 1723, and other court records, to be 
had if asked for. 

The inhabitants of Rye had each a share in the White Plains Pur- 
chase, each allotment apparently corresponding with his holdings in 
Rye. The first allotments were made shortly before 1697, so far 
as can be ascertained from the available records, and the last about 
1740. A full list of the first grantees is given in both histories of 
the county, and therefore will not be repeated. It has been impos- 
sible to find a complete history of each deed, and it would involve too

ical and Biographical Society.

much labor to fill in a complete map. This has only been done in 
the section bounded by the Old Post Road, the Indian or Scarsdale 
Line, and the West Branch of the Mamaroneck river. 

SMITH 

Abraham Smith "of Rye" was among the first settlers of White 
Plains. He purchased of Samuel Odell, in 1700, a piece of land on 
the west side of White Plains street (now Broadway), which Sam- 
uel had inherited from his father William Odell; "land which is to 
be divided" (Rye Land Records, Liber B, p. 123) ; and in 1705 Abra- 
ham Smith purchased land next to it from George Kniffen of Rye, 
"as it was laid out for him, the sd. Abraham Smith." The latter piece 
was bounded on the south by Daniel Lane's land, and the deed was 
witnessed by Humphrey Underhill (Rye Land Records, Liber B, 
p. 122). The names of Abraham Smith and Humphrey Underhill 
appear together on the land records of Jamaica, L. I. {Vol 1.) 

There were two Abraham Smiths of White Plains, father and 
son, and not one only, as stated in the Rye history. That Abra- 
ham, the father, was dead before 1712, and left a family, is apparent 
from the following entry on the old court records, dated 1712: 
"Humphrey Underhill appeared at Court and complained that ye 
estate of Abraham Smith of White Plains, since Anna Bassett late 
widow and relict of ye same Abraham Smith who married Arnold 
Bassett is dead, goes much to decay, and said Arnold is endeavoring 
to destroy ye estate of sd. Abraham Smith, wherein ye orphans will 
be very much wronged." The court ordered that ye sd. Humphrey 
Underhill, Caleb Hiat and Samuel Purdy, make an inventory of ye 
estate for the benefit of ye orphans. "Special Court, June 25, 
1712/11." (White Plains Land Records, Liber D, p. 19). Mr. 
Underhill moved that the children of Abraham Smith be bound out, 
and the estate be put into the hands of Caleb Hiat, he giving bonds ; 
the estate to be divided amongst the children. Humphrey Under- 
hill also reported that "Abraham Smith, the oldest of the children, is 
willing to live with his uncle, George Lane." Court held at East- 
chester, Nov. 6, 1714 — Elizabeth Odell, daughter of Abraham 
Smith of White Plains, dee'd, demanded her portion out of the 
hands of Caleb Hiat (Liber D, p. 41, Westchester Co. Land 
Records.) 

In 1709, Anna Smith (probably wife or widow of Abraham 
Smith, Sr.) and Samuel Lane (brother to George Lane, Jr., 
styled "Gentleman," who was called "uncle" by Abraham Smith, the 
son, and who was probably Anna Smith's brother), witnessed a 
deed of sale from Nathaniel Taylor of Phillipsburgh to Ruhamah 
Bishop, for land at the Bronx (Rye Land Records, Liber B, p. 174). 

Thomas Smith of White Plains, Yeoman, applied with Eunice 
Hatfield, widow, for Letters of Administration upon the estate of her 
late husband, Thomas Hatfield of White Plains, dee'd., 1725. . 

Abraham Smith, the son of Abraham, added to the property 
inherited from his father, and, as the oldest son, inherited all his 
father's rights as an original Patentee of White Plains. As his 



I 72 Genealogical Gleanings from Land and Probate Records at [April 

father was dead when the Royal Patent was applied for and granted, 
in 1721/22, it is quite evident that he, the son, was the Abraham 
Smith to whom the patent was granted. In 1726, Abraham Smith 
of White Plains sold all his land in White Plains to John Walton, 
"Preacher of the Gospel at White Plains," viz. : 60 acres along 
White Plains street, including on the north a part of what is now 
the Presbyterian church and cemetery grounds, and another piece 
of 9 acres "in the northerly end of the Purchase, not far from 
Anthony Miller's house, sd. land in joint tenancy with Obadiah 
Purdy, heir of Mr. Joseph Purdy of sd. White Plains, dec'd." 
{Westchester County Land Records, Liber F, p. 170). The 60 acre 
piece sold by Abraham Smith to John Walton, included 24 acres, "a 
homestead and lottment" purchased in 1714 by the "Rev. Mr. 
Christopher Bridge of Rye, Clerk," from John Frost "of Rye," 
yeoman, "bounded on the south by land of Abraham Smith" ; also 
a piece of land "that was George Lane's" before 1700. (West- 
chester Land Records, Liber E, p. 115.) Perhaps he was the Abra- 
ham Smith who settled in Dutchess county with others of White 
Plains. In his will, dated 1764, Abraham Smith "of Phillips Pat- 
ten," Dutchess county, mentions wife Margaret, son Abraham, 
grandson Silvanus Covert, daughters Jemima Covert, Ann Headly, 
Bethiah Hill, Charity Ferrinton, and Mary Griffin. 

UNDERHILL. 

Humphrey Underhill, as before stated (see Smith notes), was 
at Jamaica, L. I., from 1669 to 1675, at least. He sold, in 1675, a 
dwelling house, garden, orchard, etc., to John Rowelson ; also 20 
acres of land, bounded on the west by Samuel Smith. (Published 
Jamaica Records, Vol. /). From his will, dated July 22, 1722, it is 
evident that he married Sarah, widow of one of the Jamaica Smiths, 
as he mentions his wife's son Benjamin Smith (N. Y. Hist. Soc. 
Collections, Wills, Vol. /). Humphrey Underhill was not "perhaps 
at Stamford with Capt. John Underhill" as suggested in Baird's 
History of Rye, but was probably in New Amsterdam with his 
uncle ( ?), Thomas Hall (see Savage and Pope), who had come to 
New Amsterdam, by way of New England, from Gloucestershire in 
England. It is probable that Thomas Hall had sent for his nephew 
and niece, Humphrey and Mary Underhill, as would appear from 
the following: In 1689, Anna (Medford), widow of Thomas Hall 
of New Amsterdam, left her property, by will, to "two cousins" of 
her dec'd. husband, Humphrey Underhill and Mary Underhill, wife 
of Richard Stites (N. Y. Wills, Vol. 1, p. 41). In those days the 
term cousin was variously used, sometimes for nephew and again for 
brother in law. "Thomas Halen" (Hall) "j.m. Van Closter" (from 
Gloucestershire) "en Anna Mitfort" (Medford) "j.d. Van Bristol," 
were married in 1641 (Dutch Reformed Church in New York, 
N. Y. Gen. & Bio. Soc. Collections, Vol. 1, Marriages, p. II.) 
"Thomas Nayler, j.m. Van Assisin in England and Mary Undersil" 
(Underhill) "j.d. Van Clifford in Glocestershire" were married 
Feb. 24, 1666 (p. 32). Thomas, son of Thomas Naylor and Maria, 



iqi8 ] White Plains and Rye, N. Y. I 7 3 

was baptized 1667, and the witnesses were Thomas Hall and Hilli- 
gard Joris. (Same reference, Baptisms, p. 8/). Mary Naylor 
appeared in court regarding a debt of her dec d husband, in 1668 
(Court Minutes of New Amsterdam, Vol. VI, p. I2g). Mary Nay- 
lor and Richard Stites were married May 14, 1668 (New York Mar- 
riages). Humphrey Underhill bought land in Rye in 1681 (Hist, 
of Rye). He sold his lot in the first division of White Plains, on the 
east side of White Plains street (which he had purchased from Isaac 
and Anna Odell of Eastchester) to James Travis, in 1705. He 
settled on his large tract of land in the extreme southern part of 
"The Patent," and deeded a part of the same to Samuel Hunt, his 
son in law. It appears from the land records that Humphrey 
Underhill was to build a mill, and Samuel Hunt was to grind the 
town's corn. The mill seems to have been several years in the build- 
ing, from 1704/5 to 1707, when another year was granted "to finish 
the mill now begun." Humphrey Underhill had no male descend- 
ants, and his White Plains land passed to his grandson, Underhill 
Budd (White Plains Land, Liber G, p. 393). Humphrey Underbill's 
children were: Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Merritt, Mary, wife of 
Samuel Hunt, Sarah, wife of Joseph Budd, and Hannah, who mar- 
ried first William Barnes, and second, Daniel Clarke. 

LYNCH. 

A Gabriel Lynch died intestate at Newtown, L. I., and his estate 
was administered by Jonathan Strickland and wife, who were 
appointed Sept. 24, 1671 (N. Y. Surrogate Records, Liber 1 p. 

95)- 

A Gabriel Lynch was offered a home lot in Eastchester in 1682, 
provided he carry on his trade of blacksmith. (Eastchester Town 
Records, large book. p. 42). A piece of land was laid out for 
Gabriel Lynch, in Rye, April 12, 1689. (Rye Land Records, Liber 

C.p.36). 

A Jonathan Lynch was among those who applied for the Royal 
Patent at White Plains in 1721/2. He took an active part in town 
affairs, and helped survey and lay out some of the land, for which 
service he was paid in land. He sold a piece of this with another 
of the "layers out," to Joseph Fowler of Mamaroneck, in 1726. 
(Westchester County Land Records, Liber F, p. 81). He was dead 
in 1740, when a plot of land in the 5th division, "up above the corn 
mill by the mill brook" was mentioned as being bounded on the 
south by "the heirs of Jonathan Lynch." (Rye Land Records, 
Liber C, p. 273). He owned land on the east side of the Old 
Mamaroneck Road, and in 1725 the "Road to Rye Neck" was laid 
out through his land, in front of his house: "Beginning at a road 
laid out going down to Eastchester, between the lot of John Travis 
and the lot of Moses Knapp, by Jonathan Lynch's house and by 
Isaac Covert's house and by Jonathan Purdy's house and by Daniel 
Horton's house and by Caleb Horton's house and so along until it 
comes to the Mamaroneck river where the bridge now crosses." 
(Westchester County Road Book.) Histories of White Plains have 



I 74 Genealogical Cleanings from Land and Probate Records at [April 

been in error in regard to the laying out of this road, and have con- 
fused it with the Old Mamaroneck Road which ran through the 
Lynch property south, by Joseph Horton's house, through Joshua 
Hatfield's land, and but a short distance beyond the Scarsdale line 
(see map). In 1737, Jonathan Lynch's land was given as the west- 
most bound of land transferred by deed from Caleb Field to Wil- 
liam Marsh; and in 1740, when the same land was sold, Gabriel 
Lynch, evidently Jonathan's son, was in possession of this land on 
the western bound. This Gabriel Lynch was called "cousin" by 
Martha, widow of Benjamin Lyon of Rye, in her will dated 1773. 
As Martha Lyon also mentions a sister, Mary Lynch, Gabriel Lynch 
was probably her brother in law. (Westchester County Wills, p. 
356). Gabriel Lynch (son of Jonathan), was living in 1790, and 
his sons Gabriel, Jr. and John were living near him (N. Y. Census, 
1790). Gabriel Lynch, Jr. (son of Gabriel), in his will, dated 1805, 
then living at Bedford, ordered that his land in White Plains be sold, 
and the proceeds divided among his brother John's children ; John, 
Peter and Sarah ; and his sisters, Margaret Fowler, Sarah Hatfield 
and Hannah Cornell. Gabriel Lynch, Sr., purchased a part of the 
estate of Peter Hatfield, one of the first Patentees of White Plains, 
from his son Peter Hatfield, Jr., who moved to Clinton, Dutchess 
Co., N. Y., about 1769 (Dutchess Co. Land Records), as shown by 
various deeds giving boundaries, but the deed of transfer cannot 
be found. Gabriel Lynch mortgaged this land in 1783. 

KNAPP. 

Moses Knapp had a tract of land laid out for him in White 
Plains in 1720 (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber E, p. 273). 
Whether he was a son of Timothy Knapp of Rye, who married 
Bethiah Brondage, has not been determined. There was a Moses 
Knapp, Jr., in White Plains, who held office in 1737 (old White 
Plains Town Book). Benjamin Knapp succeeded to the tract of 
land owned by Moses Knapp, Sr. Daniel Knapp in his will dated 
1744, stipulated that if his wife Martha "change her estate" his 
land was to be sold and the proceeds divided among his wife, his 
brothers, Moses and Benjamin Knapp, and his cousins Lavinia 
Mead and Gilbert Hatfield. The wife evidently remarried, for the 
land was sold to Abraham Hatfield (no record of deed), who in 
turn sold it to Dr. Robert Graham of Scarsdale, "land formerly 
Daniel Knapp's." (Rye Land Records, Liber C, p. 253.) This 
included the lot at the corner, owned by John Travis when the Road 
to Rye Neck was laid out in 1725, and ran along "the Road to East- 
chester" (now Maple Ave.), to "Wolf Pitt Hill" (now Fisher's 
Hill). See map. 

GRAHAM. 

Dr. Robert Graham, who succeeded Capt. Abraham Hatfield as 
Supervisor and leading townsman, evidently did not care for the 
situation of this land which he had purchased from Capt. Abraham 
Hatfield. Perhaps the house stood too far from the center of the 



iqi8.] White Plains and Rye, N.Y. I 75 

town, for he sold it, and 20 acres of land to Abraham Barratt, and 
purchased the lot originally laid out to Caleb Hiat (Westchester Co. 
Road Book), where he seems to have lived. Dr. Graham owned 
quite a large tract of land across the road from the old court house, 
which together with this 10 acre piece north of the court house, he 
deeded to Abraham Waring, Joseph Bull Graham, and Robert Gra- 
ham, Jr., in 1786. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber K, p. 11). 
Abraham Barratt lost this 20 acre piece of land by mortgage to Dr. 
Peter Huggeford (Westchester Co. Mortgages, Liber A, p. 15) 
who sold it to Gilbert Hatfield, Jr., son of Abraham, in 1773. 

HUGGEFORD 

Dr. Peter Huggeford was a Loyalist, and his Cortlandt property 
was confiscated. He went to Nova Scotia during the Revolution, 
but returned to White Plains, where he died. (For a fuller account of 
his life, see Deceased Physicians of Westchester County). In his will 
dated July 28, 1796, Peter Huggeford of the Town of White Plains, 
Physician, ordered his executors to sell 700 acres of land at St. 
Mary's Bay in Nova Scotia ; the proceeds to go to "surviving 
children" and "the heirs of my deceased children." He mentions 
daughters Frances Field, Martha Hardy, Jane Dickinson and Esther; 
sons Tertulles and Joseph ; grandson John Huggeford ; sons in law 
John Titus, Tertulles Dickinson and Benjamin Field. To his 
daughter Frances Field, he gave "the land where I now live." His 
500 acres of land in Schoharie and 700 acres in Vermont, were 
"to be sold if recovered." For will of Dr. Huggeford's son John of 
New York, witnessed by Richard Hatfield, Esq., and his wife Mary, 
see New York Wills. 

HATFIELD. 

Capt. Abraham Hatfield, from his will, dated 1775, and from 
the boundary deeds of other land owners, seems to have bought back 
most of the Daniel Knapp tract. Of this he sold to his son "Gilbert 
Hatfield Jr.," 17 acres east of the homestead which his son had pur- 
chased from Dr. Huggeford and wife Elizabeth, (Westchester 
County Land Records, Liber 418, p. 4), and the rest he left him 
by will. To his son Joseph, not yet of age, he willed his land on 
the north side of the "Road to New York," 50^ acres, which in- 
cluded the original home lot of Moses Knapp, Sr. The piece of 
land south of the Dr. Huggeford lot, owned by Capt. Abraham Hat- 
field, was purchased by Capt. Abraham's father, Thomas Hatfield, 
from his older brother, Peter Hatfield, in 1716, and was described 
by Peter as lying at the northwest corner of his other lands. (West- 
chester Co. Land Records, Liber E, p. 370.) Twenty-two acres of 
this evidently fell to Abraham Hatfield, as the oldest son of his 
father, Thomas Hatfield, and he in turn gave it to his oldest son, 
"Gilbert Hatfield Jr.," in 1773. (Westchester Co. Land Records, 
Liber 145, p. 389.) Thomas 8 Hatfield was not an inhabitant of Rye, 
but a younger son of the Mamaroneck Patentee, Thomas 2 Hatfield 
(Thomas 1 ) ; neither did Thomas 3 Hatfield purchase his land from 
an inhabitant of Rye, but from his brother Peter. Peter Hatfield, 



! 76 Notice. [April 

having sold his Mamaroneck lands, bought up land in the second 
and third divisions from the original Rye Patentees, and sold his 
brother Thomas this small piece which he had purchased from Peter 
Disbrow. Thomas 3 Hatfield was deceased in 1725, when his wife 
Eunice and Thomas Smith of White Plains, Yeoman, applied for 
Letters of Administration upon his estate. Perhaps Peter, the Paten- 
tee, looked after the interests of Abraham and Gilbert, the children 
of his brother Thomas Hatfield, for Capt. Abraham Hatfield, in his 
will dated 1775, called Joshua Hatfield, son of Peter, "brother," 
and appointed him administrator of his estate. 

Peter Hatfield purchased a tract of land in the second and third 
divisions of White Plains, from the original patentees, or their im- 
mediate successors, and this tract extended from the Scarsdale or 
"Indian Line of Marked Trees" to, or almost to, the then Road to 
Rye Neck, (now Old Mamaroneck Road, Gedney Way and Mamar- 
oneck Avenue), (see map), in 1723, when Jacob Griffin bought 80 
acres of land from William Yeomans and his son Robert. (West- 
chester Co. Land Records, Liber E, p. 40). The Yeomans had 
been buying up land, also, and owned the land, or part of it, at that 
time, to the south of the land they sold in the third division, and 
later sold it to Jacob Griffin. 

When Peter 4 Hatfield, son of Peter 3 , the Patentee, left White 
Plains, and settled in Clinton, Dutchess Co., N. Y. (Dutchess Co. 
Land Deeds), he evidently sold this land, which he had inherited 
from his father (by will of 1753-1754), to Gabriel Lynch, Sr., and 
to John Bates (son in law to Jacob Griffin). John Bates forfeited 
the piece he had bought, during the Revolution, and it was sold by 
the Commissioners of Forfeitures, in 1784, to Richard Hatfield, Esq., 
son of Joshua, and grandson of Peter Hatfield, the Patentee, who 
had originally owned it. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber 

K, P- 95-)

66. Tilje — Gerritzen — Letelier — Correction. 

Stiles' History of Brooklyn, vol. 2, f. 330, has list of citizens 
signing a petition in which appear the names of both Jan Tilje 
and Barent Geritzen. 

On f. 340, in signatures of Magistrates, is "Barent Gerretse 
Letelier." This is a confusion of the two names as above and 
arises (in copying) from the position in which they stand, May 4, 
1665, in the old Town Record Book. Both signed surname only, 
thus — "Garretse " and " Letelier." In this case, however, the full 
name, Barent Gerretse, preceded, without punctuation, the usual 
Letelier, making one name of the two. 

Copying (perhaps from Stiles), Bergen in Early Settlers of Kings 
County, f. 108, makes the same mistake. On f. 303, he gives both 
the Dutch and French names — Jan Tilje and Letelier, for the only 
Letelier of that early date.

department for Registration of ^elitgrees* 



Conducted by JOHN REYNOLDS TOTTEN. 



THE NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY 
conducts a department for the purpose of examining, approving and 
publishing pedigrees of individual applicants. 

The Society will accept for examination the pedigree of ANY INDI- 
VIDUAL, whether a member of the Society or not. 

Those desiring to take advantage of the facilities thus offered should apply 
to the Society for the authorized blank form on which to record the pedigree to 
be submitted for examination (enclosing 50 cents in payment for the blank). 

Applicants must either themselves, or with the assistance of professional 
genealogists, fill in the form as indicated and return the same to this Society for 
examination ; it being understood that the regular charges made by this Society 
are for examination and publication of the pedigree, and do not include genea- 
logical research in the preparation of the pedigree itself. 

When a pedigree is submitted for examination the applicant must send with 
it a preliminary fee of $15.00. Upon the receipt of a pedigree and this preliminary 
fee, the pedigree will be examined ; and if approved, it will be subsequently pub- 
lished, first in an issue of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record, and the applicant will receive 2 copies of the Record containing the pedi- 
gree without further charge. The pedigree will thereafter (when a sufficient 
number have accumulated) be published in a volume of a series, one volume 
of which has already been issued (see Vol. VI, New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society's Collections) ; and copies of this volume will be sold to those 
whose pedigrees are contained therein at the special price of $5.00 a volume. 

Pedigrees must be submitted to the Society in form complete for publication. 
If, upon examination by the Society, essential facts are added to the pedigree by 
the examiner, a nominal fee, not to exceed $5.00, will be charged by the Society 
for ascertaining and embodying such additional information in the pedigree. 

If upon examination the pedigree is found to be essentially inaccurate, it will 
not be approved and will be returned to the applicant ; and the preliminary fee will 
be refunded, less a charge of $10.00 for expert examination. 

If, when finally examined, approved and prepared for publication, the pedi- 
gree is found to require more than one page for its proper presentation, the fee 
for publishing the same, as above explained, will be at the rate of $15.00 a page 
(pages to be similar in size and form to those of pedigrees heretofore published in 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, — see issues from 
April, 191 1, to date of this issue), but, in adjusting the final charge, credit for the 
payment of the preliminary fee of $15.00 will be given to the applicant. 

For the benefit of applicants desiring extra copies of their pedigrees for 
family distribution, editions of 50 copies of such pedigrees will be supplied on 
4-page folders of linen ledger paper, with space left for additional notes, for 
a fee of $5.00. 

Individuals desiring their pedigrees prepared for examination, approval 
and later publication by this Society, and who are unfamiliar with the methods 
to pursue to secure the necessary information to establish such pedigrees, or 
who are unable to devote the required time to their preparation, — are invited 
to address this Society with a view to being put in communication with a 
professional genealogist capable of establishing and submitting them (when 
established) in proper form to this Society for publication. 

Applications for examination, approval and publishing pedigrees under the 
condition hereabove set forth should be made to the 

NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY, 
226 West 58TH Street, New York City.

Anna (Hamden) Cox (whose parentage is not as yet determined and who was the widow of 
Valentine Cox), b , at ; d , at 

Res. Thomas Hatfield went " from England " to Leyden, Holland, and was of the Congregation of Rev. John Robinson of Ley- 
den, at time ol his marriage. Exhaustive search of tte Leyden Records has revealed the existence in Holland at this 
period of but one Hatfield, viz: the one above recorded. Thomas Hatfield. Two Hatfields appear in years ib6o and 1665 
in America, viz: 1st. Matthias Hatfield in New Haven in 1660 where he took the oath of allegiance and subsequently in 
Elizabethtown, N. J., in 1665, where he likewise took the oath of allegiance; and 2nd, Thomas Hatfield who was in 
New Amsterdam in 1665 and was called " a soldier." Both of these Hatfields, Matthias and Thomas, were connected 
with the Dutch Church of New Amsterdam and were associated with the Dutch there. The date of marriage of 
Thomas 1 ol Leyden (April 16, 1621), would^place the dates of birth of Matthias 2 and Thomas 2 Hatfield somewhere about 
1622-1630, probably, and would make them of the marriageable age about 1650-1660; and the dates of birth or baptism 
ot the children of Matthias 2 and Thomas 2 Hatfield present no facts inconsistent with the possibility of their being sons 
of Thomas 1 and Anna (Hamden-Cox) Hatfield of Leyden, and hence we think it a fair presumption that Matthias 2 of 
Elizabethtown, N. J., and Thomas 2 of New Amsterdam and subsequently of Maniaroneck were brothers and sons of 
Thomas 1 of Leyden. 

Children, 2 (Hatfield) sons, viz: Matthias, Thomas (see below). 

Thomas Hatfield, b , at ; d (between 1696 and March 21, 1697-8), at Mamaroneck, 

N. Y. (probably); m , at , to Elsje (or Alice) Ebel, or Evels (dau. of Peter Ebel. 

Peter Ebel was Provost Marshal of New Amsterdam (now New York City) in 1647 and Indian 
interpreter there in 1663. In 1657 he petitioned to be inscribed as a Burgher of New Amsterdam 
and stated that he had been "long in the country and performed many services for it." His re- 
quest was refused as he did not reside in the city, but in 1665 his name was in the assessment list 

according to the New Netherland Register), as her 2nd husband, b (bap. Oct. 16, 1650, in 

the Dutch Church, New Amsterdam), at New Amsterdam, N. Y.; d , at Elsje 

Evels m. (1) Sept. 28, 1667, at (New Amsterdam, probably), to William (or Willem) 

Trotter or Traeter (whose parentage is as yet not determined), b , at ; d 

(before 1673), at 

Res. New Amsterdam and Mamaroneck, N. Y. The exact circumstances of his departure from Holland and his appearance in 
New Amsterdam are not known, but he was in New Amsterdam in 166$ and was called " a soldier." He purchased a 
home lot in Mamaroneck in 1671 and became one of the proprietors, receiving his share of the common lands that yea'r. 
He was interested in the locality however in :6~o, as he was witness to a deed there in that year. He was one of those 
who made the inventory of the estate of John Richbell who died about 16S4 and also of the estate of Henry Fowler of

HATFIELD— Continued. 

Mamaroneck who died in 1687. He was at one time a quarter owner of the saw mill which he built together with Jo 
Richbell, Henry Fowler and Richard Ward (his son-in-law) and later his interest was a half interest in this mill, pr 
ably after the death of John Richbell and Henry Fowler. He was a Juror in Mamaroneck in 1605. In 1696 he sold . 
hall interest in the saw mill to John Disbrow and the deed of sale of this mill was recorded March 2t, ibq6, when ! 
Thomas Hatfield, was reported as "deceased " by Samuel Palmer, one of the witnesses of the deed. There was 
Hatfield on the list of those who took the King's Oath at Mamaroneck in 169S. In 1701 the name of Alice Hatfl 
(wife of Thomas 2 Hatfield) appears in place of her husband's when Caleb Heathcote and other proprietors applied 
a confirmatory deed from the Indians for their Mamaroneck lands. Also in 1701 " Aales Hatvetd " testified that 1 
husband Thomas had made a nuncupative (verbal) will in the presence of witnesses, which will had been proved in I 
Prerogative Court of the county, and had bequeathed the homestead (in Mamaroneck) to her. This homestead v 
mortgaged and because of her " great wants and necessity " under her stateof widowhood and in consideration of s; 
mortgage and the sum of £19 the homestead was conveyed to Caleb Heathcote and became a part of Scarsdale Mao 
N. Y. Thomas 2 Hatfield was the second husband of Elsje Evels, as in vol. ii, p. 91. ot the published record of I 
Dutch Church of New Amsterdam the following baptism is recorded, viz: "June 17, 166S, Jacob, child of Will 
Traeter and Elsje Evels was baptized. Sponsors Pieter Evel, Claertie Evels." From which it would appear that 1 
married first to William Traeter, who must have died previous to 1673, as her first child by Thomas Hatfield was b; 
tized April 22, 1674- _ 

From the evidence obtainable it would seem that the Claertie Evel9, who appears as sponsor with Peter Evels 
the baptism of Elsje Evel's children, (i. e. Jacob Traetor, Catharina Hatfield and Thomas Hatfield), was either 1 
sister of Peter Evel or else his wife. The records do not clearly establish the exact relationship. 

William Trotter, a widower with children, from Newbury, Mass., was one of the earlv settlers of Elizabethto? 
N. J., where he took the oath of allegiance in 1663; he was there associated with Matthias 2 Hatfield (brother of Thomas

were Jan Hendrickszen Van Gunst and Barentje Hendricz).

Ret. Thomas Hatfield does not appear to have inherited any of his father's land at Mamaroneck 'and his name appears! 
once on the Westchester County Land Records when the deed by which be purchased a piece of land from his brotl 
Peter Hatfield was recorded, just previous to his death. This was a piece of plow land which Peter Hatfield had p 
chased from, and which had been laid out to Peter Disbrow in the so called second draft of the White Plains purchi 
and which land Peter Hatfield described in 1718 when he sold it to his brother, the above named Thomas Hatfield, 
" lying at the northwest corner of his own land." Thomas Hatfield died in 1724 and his wife Eunice, together w 
Thomas Smith of White Plains, a yeoman, applied for letters of administration on his estate on Nov. 19th of that ye 
An inventory of his estate was ordered to be filed the following Ad ril (1725), but no record can be found in the Westches 
County Probate Records of the filing of the same inventory. The piece of land owned by Thomas Hatfield (deeded 
him by his brother Peter in 1718) was in the possession of his son Captain Abraham Hatfield in. 1773 when he deedec 
to his (Abraham's) oldest son " Gilbert Hatfield, Jr." 

Children, 2* (Hatfield) sons: Gilbert, Abraham (see below).; 

* In the will of Abraham 4 Hatfield he mentions " his brother " Joshua and makes him one of the executors. 

Capt. Abraham 4 Hatfield had no blood brother Joshua. Thomas 11 Hatfield (father of Capt. Abraham 4 Hatfield)died 
1724 when Abraham 4 was only 4 years old and it is likely that Abraham 4 was brought up in the home of his un 
Gilbert 3 Hatfield of White Plains who had a son Joshua 4 Hatfield and for this reason Abraham 4 and Joshua 4 call 
each other brother while in reality they were first cousins.

SOCIETY PROCEEDINGS. 



Regular Meeting, December 13TH, 1917. 

Meeting was called to order at 4 P. M. President Bowen in the Chair. 

Mr. Bowen made the following announcement as to the future meetings of 
the Society: 

Friday evening, Jan. 11, 1918. Speaker: Hon. Howard R. Bayne. Sub- 
ject: "The Administration of George Washington as President of the United 
States." 

Friday evening, Feb. 8, 1918. Speaker: James Hosmer Penniman, Litt. D., 
of 4326 Sansom St., Philadelphia, Pa. Subject: "George Washington as Com- 
mander-in-Chief." 

Since the last meeting of the Society the following death has been re- 
corded: — Francis LeRoy Satterlee, M. D., Annual Member, died Nov. 12, 1917, 
in his 71st year. 

The Executive Committee reported the election of the following new 
members: — Chauncey Rea Burr, M.D., 1 Madison Avenue, City, Annual Mem- 
ber, proposed by Clarence W. Bowen; James Hamilton Gill, Hotel Gramatan, 
Bronxville, N. Y., assuming membership of his late wife, proposed by John R. 
Totten; Henry Goddard Leach, 829 Park Avenue, City, Annual Member, pro- 
posed by John R. Totten. 

Mr. Bowen then introduced Dr. Franklin Bowditch Dexter of Yale Univer- 
sity, who delivered a lecture entitled "Student Life at Yale a Century Ago." 

At the close of Dr. Dexter's lecture Mr. Thomas T. Sherman moved that 
the thanks of the Society be given to Dr. Dexter for his instructive and very 
interesting lecture and that he be requested to file a copy of the same in the 
archives of the Society and added this tribute to the speaker: 

"Those of us who are Yale men and especially those who did not graduate 
yesterday, have long respected and loved Professor Dexter, as we used to call 
him — Dr. Dexter, as he is now — but we think of him as Professor Dexter. 
Very few, however, really realize or appreciate the vast amount of work he has 
done of the most valuable historical, biographical and genealogical nature. 
One work, his Biographies of Early Yale Graduates, is, in itself, a monument. 
It comprises several large volumes and has preserved, for the future, genea- 
logical and statistical information about men that no one else could have 
collected and which would probably never have been obtained or recorded but 
for his zeal and efficiency. Yale College, Connecticut, New Haven and the 
world owe to Dr. Dexter a lasting debt of gratitude for what he has done for us 
all. If we honor him in any way we honor this Society." 

Mr. Sherman's motion was seconded by Mr. Hopper Striker Mott and 
unanimously carried. 

Mr. John Waldemar von Rehling Qvistgaard, the artist, who had painted 
the portrait of the Hon. Chauncey Mitchell Depew which had been presented 
to the Society, then unveiled the portrait.

Laws, and attention called to the progress made in both the Building and 
Library funds. 

On motion report was received and placed on file. 

The Librarian, Mr. Abraham Hatfield, Jr., reported that owing to the in- 
creased expense of printing caused by the war, the number of new publications 
received had not been as great as those of former years. 

A number of desirable books had been acquired both by purchase and 
exchange and a valuable donation received from the library of the late George 
Austin Morrison, Jr. 430 volumes had been added to the library during the 
year, making a total of about 11,023; 242 pamphlets had also been received. 
During the year some 80 volumes and 800 pamphlets had been bound. The 
library attendance was 780 members and 360 visitors, making a total of 1 1 40.

Mr. Royden Woodward Vosburgh, as Historian, reported that Mr. Willis 
Tracy Hanson, Jr., had been appointed a member of the Committee on 
Research; that there were now 59 Corresponding Members, that some fifty 
items had been donated to the library and manuscript collection from twelve 
Corresponding Members, Mrs. Dora P. Worden and W. S. Coons having been 
the most active contributors. 

As Archivist and on behalf of the Committee on Research Mr. Vosburgh 
reported that this department had just completed its "banner year," that the 
records of seven churches had been transcribed, which comprised ten volumes 
containing 2,238 pages, an increase of 368 pages over last year. He also gave 
a summary of the records transcribed and reviewed the work of his department 
from its inception, alluding to the good work of the late Walter Kenneth Griffin, 
and spoke as to the difficulty of getting records in certain locations in the 
State. 

Capt. Totten moved the report be received and placed on file, and paid 
tribute to the excellent work done by Mr. Vosburgh, his perseverance and 
success. Following which the President expressed the appreciation of the 
Society.

pedigrees received during the year: Wendell, Betts, Turner, Brewster, Salton- 
stall, Leeds and Bacon. 

On behalf of the Publication Committee, of which Mr. Hopper Striker Mott 
was Chairman, Capt. Totten spoke of the very satisfactory condition of The 
Record, and that notwithstanding war times great progress had been made 
during the year. 

On behalf of the Committee on Heraldry, the President stated that the 
Chairman, Col. John Ross Delafield, was so occupied with war work, that the 
Committee had been discharged for the time being. 

Mr. Henry Woodward Sackett, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, 
then presented the following names for election as Trustees to serve for the 
term of three years: — Thomas Townsend Sherman, William Ross Proctor, 
Abraham Hatfield, Jr., William Isaac Walker, Tobias Alexander Wright.

In the interim while the votes were being collected and counted, President 
Bowen made a brief address on the subject of the new location for the future 
home of the Society at Nos. 122, 124 and 126 East 58th Street, stating that he 
considered it an ideal location for the future development of the Society. He 
also stated that there could not be much promise of activity as regards a new 
building until after the war was over, but that meanwhile the Building Fund 
which last year consisted of about $400.00 had now increased to nearly ?6,ooo.oo 
and that he expected in time the Society would be able to erect a new building 
without running into debt.

Bullock Tompkins, reported that some 273 ballots had been cast all for the

BOOK REVIEWS. 
By John R. Totten. 

Editorial Note:— The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society solicits as 
donations to its Library all newly published works on Genealogy, History and Biography, as well 
as all works on Town, County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the 
Vital Records of any and all localities. It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections 
of its library any and all manuscript compilations which bear upon the above mentioned topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will beat once 
placed upon the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, each donation of such character, 
whether in printed or manuscript form, will be reviewed under the head of " Book Notices" and 
a copy of The Record containing the review will be sent to the donor. 

The Society does not solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to 
the above mentioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material 
which does not bear directly upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of The Record should be delivered to the 
Society before December 1st of the previous year; for the April issue, before March 1st; for the 
July issue before June 1st; and for the October issue, before September 1st. 



206 Book Reviews. [April 



All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public 
to their good points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the 
interest of the genealogical student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record. 

The "Book Notices" of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as 
genealogical students, and the review of a work in The Record is equivalent to a special 
advertisement of such work. 

Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work 
donated and the name and address of the person from whom it can be purchased. 



The Descendants of John Thomson, Pioneer Scotch Covenanter; 
Genealogical notes on all known descendants of John Thomson, Covenanter, 
of Scotland, Ireland and Pennsylvania, with such biographical sketches as 
could be obtained from available published records or were supplied by the 
friends of those individuals who were too modest to tell of their own accom- 
plishments, — compiled for the cousins by Addams S. McAllister, New York 
City, N. Y. 191 7. 8vo, cloth, pp. 357, including an excellent index, illus- 
trated. Price, $5.00. Address: Edward S. Thomson, Thomsontown, Juniata 
Co., Pa. 

A most excellent compilation which will be welcomed by all of the blood 
and by all genealogical libraries to which it is most heartily recommended. 
The author has adopted a novel decimal system of genealogical numeration, 
which while accomplishing its object with accuracy does not seem as well 
adapted to the purpose as the standardized methods. This method does not, 
however, affect the excellence of the information contained in the volume 
which bears all signs of having been carefully and exhaustively collected. 

Genealogical Record of Rev. Nicholas Baker (1610-1678), and His 
Descendants, by Fred. A. Baker, of No. 526 Dime Bank Building, Detroit, 
Mich. 8vo, leather, soft cover, pp. 147. Price, $5.00. Address: Author at 
above address. 

A valuable contribution to the history and genealogy of the Baker family 
and especially valuable to those of the blood line treated. Recommended 
to all genealogical libraries. 

Descendants of Robert Cunningham, Bulletins Nos. 1, 2 and 3. 8vo, 
paper, 1910, 191 1 and 1917. 

An association of the Descendants of Robert Cunningham has been 
formed of which Dr. Jennie T. Lane, of 23 Hudson Street, Worcester, Mass.. 
is the President and from whom the bulletins may be obtained. The object 
of the association is that of mutual interest and the ultimate end is to accu- 
mulate information relative to the various branches of the family springing 
from this ancestor. 

Eugenical News, Vols. I and II (1916-1917), published by the Eugenics 
Record Office, at Cold Spring Harbor, L. I., N. Y. A monthly issue. Price, 50 
cents a year. Address publication at Cold Spring Harbor, L. I., N. Y. 

We cannot question the intimate relation of heredity to genealogy and 
therefore must have an interest (even if latent) in eugenics. We, therefore, 
welcome this publication now entering its third year of existence, and do not 
doubt that from information obtainable in the genealogical and biographical 
fields which now are so large and fruitful, that eugenic generalizations may 
be drawn of much value to humanity. 

The Alumni Record of the University of Illinois, including histori- 
cal sketch and annals of the University and biographical data regarding 
members of the Faculties and the Boards of Trustees. Edited by James 
Herbert Kelley. Published by the University, 1913. 8vo, cloth, pp. 921, with 
illustrations of the University buildings and frontispiece portrait of the Presi- 
dent, Edmund J. James. Fully indexed. No price stated. Address : President 
of the University, Urbana-Champaign, 111. 

A most creditable compilation and like all first class general catalogues 
of colleges is filled with information of a valuable genealogical nature. Rec- 
ommended to all genealogical and biographical libraries. 



I9'8.] Book Reviews. 207 

University of Illinois Directory. Listing the 35,000 persons who have 
ever been connected with the Urbana-Champaign Departments, including Offi- 
cers of Instruction and Administration and 1,397 deceased, edited by Virgil 
V. Phelps, D.B., Ph.D., 1916. 8vo, cloth, pp. 1284, illustrated. No price stated. 
Address : President of the University at Urbana-Champaign, 111. 

This is (like the Alumni Record), a first class work replete with genea- 
logical information and will be of value to genealogical students of the 
future. Recommended to all genealogical and biographical libraries. 

The Reverend Colin Df.w James, a Pioneer Methodist Preacher of 
Early Illinois, by (his son) Edmund Janes James, President of the Uni- 
versity of Illinois. Reprinted from the Journal of the Illinois State Histori- 
cal Society, Vol. 9, No. 4, January, 1917. 8vo, pamphlet, pp. 22, with frontis- 
piece portraits of Colin Dew James and his wife, Amanda K. Casad (taken 
in 1856). 

An excellently presented sketch of the life of this Illinois pioneer preacher 
and in addition to the biographical features contain much genealogical 
information. No price stated. Address : Compiler, at Urbana-Champaign, 

The Lambert Family of Salem, Massachusetts, by Henry W. Belknap. 
8vo, paper, pp. 45, with two reproductions of miniatures of Captain Sam- 
uel Lambert (1768-1832), and of Jonathan Lambert (1772-1814). Price, 
$1.00. Address: Compiler, a Warren Street, Salem, Mass. 

This little pamphlet is a reprint edition of 50 copies from the Historical 
Collections of the Essex Institute, Vol. LIV, and in its individual form will 
be much appreciated by those of Lambert blood, especially those of the lines 
treated. Recommended to all genealoogical libraries. 

The Boyhood and Youth of Joseph Hodges Choate, 8vo, cloth and 
boards, pp. 153, illustrated with 19 full page portraits and other plates of fam- 
ily interest. Copyright, 1917. Limited edition of 600 numbered copies for 
private distribution only. 

No better statement of the nature and extent of this autobiographical 
work can be had than the prefatory notes of Mrs. Caroline Sterling Choate, 
the widow of Joseph Hodges Choate, under date of Naumkeag, Stockbridge, 
Mass., October 16, 1917. 

"For many years Mr. Choate's family and friends had begged him to write 
his reminiscences. He invariably refused to entertain the idea on the ground 
that, in his opinion, such sketches could be of no value to any one. To the 
many requests of publishers, editors, and biographers, he likewise — with a 
characteristic lack of vanity — turned a deaf ear. 

"In the spring of 1914, however — when he was in his eighty-third year — 
the convalescence and inaction consequent upon the first severe illness of 
his life, prompted him to begin the dictation of these papers. They were 
casually and intermittently composed, with no idea of publication in mind, 
and only intended for the eyes of his immediate family. On occasions, 
weeks and even months passed by without his giving them a thought. 

"The papers are here printed literally, just as he dictated them to his 
secretary. Mr. Choate made no use of notes in preparing them; he consulted 
no books, and he never even corrected the manuscript. Had he done so, he 
would undoubtedly have made many verbal alterations — and perhaps exci- 
sions, in the text. He began the sketches with slight interest, but, as they 
developed, he became more absorbed in the task and looked forward with a 
good deal of pleasure to going on with it. 

"After the celebrations incident to his eighty-fifth birthday, he went 
back to the work with renewed zest and had started on the chapter entitled 
'Marriage,' when there came the break in our diplomatic relations with Ger- 
many. From that moment — February 3, 1917 — nothing could induce him to 
continue his task. His mind seemed to harbor but one thought, the thought 
of the Great Cause and of the part which he longed to have his country play 
in it." 



2oS Book Reviews. [April 

After perusing the all too few pages of this charming volume we cannot 
stifle the regret that Mr. Choate did not find the time and inclination to 
record the impressions made upon his mind by the historic events of this 
country from his manhood, 1853, to his death in 1917. His active manhood 
covered the most important 65 years of the wonderful development of this 
land and his intimate knowledge of the events of history themselves and his 
personal friendship with many who were the active causes of those events, 
and his active personal participation in many of them — when taken in connec- 
tion with his mentality, breadth of mind, logic, wit and humanity rendered him 
one whose elaborate personal memoirs and retrospections would have been 
of great value to coming generations. His modest appreciation of himself 
has resulted in a consequent loss to posterity. 

Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Henry Mauzy, A 
Huguenot Refugee, the ancestor of the Mauzys of Virginia, and other states, 
from 1685 to 1910, and of the descendants of Jacob Kisling from 1760 to 
1910, by Richard Mauzy (written when he was 86 years old). 8vo, cloth, pp. 
127. with frontispiece portrait of author. No index. Price, $2.00 postpaid. 
Address: Mrs. Ella D. Bader (the author's daughter), McGaheysville, Va. 

A valuable contribution to the history and genealogy of this family. 
Recommended to genealogical libraries. 

William Claiborne of Virginia, with Some Account of His Pedi- 
gree, by John Herbert Claiborne, M. D., F. A. C. S., with an introduction 
by John D. Lindsay of the New York Bar. 8vo, cloth, pp. 231, illustrated. 
Price, $1.75. Address: G. P. Putnam's Sons, Publishers, 2 West 45th Street, 
New York City. 

"This work not only gives a faithful portrait of a remarkable character, 
but opens up an interesting chapter of colonial history. After tracing the 
genealogy of the Claibornes, and narrating the earlier events of his ancestor's 
life, the author gives an authentic account, based on careful research, of the 
dispute between Claiborne and Lord Baltimore, regarding the ownership of 
Kent Island in Chesapeake Bay — a dispute involving conflicting claims of the 
colonies of Virginia and Maryland. The two protagonists were well matched 
in tenacity of purpose, persistence, cleverness, and resource, and their 
rivalry, which led to armed conflict, makes dramatic reading." 

Recommended to all biographical and genealogical libraries. 

Rushford and Rushford People. Planned, Edited and Published by 
Helen Josephine White Gilbert, Historian of the Rushford Centennial. 8vo, 
cloth, pp. 572, illustrated, with numerous portrait plates. Price, cloth, $2.25; 
leather, $2.50. Address : Author, Mrs. Eddy C. Gilbert, Rushford, N. Y. 

It is the family sketches in this volume that will render it of great value 
to genealogists. It contains about 200 pages of notes on the old families of 
the town, which notes are full of valuable genealogical data. The rest of the 
volume is taken up with a complete digest of the activities of the town itself. 
Recommended to all genealogical libraries. 

William Wood (born 1656) of Earlsferry, Scotland, and Some of 
His Descendants and Their Connections, by J. Walter Wood. 8vo, cloth, 
pp. 74, with full name index and illustrated with excellent frontispiece cut 
of Wood Arms and 19 full page portrait plates of more than usual excel- 
lence ; together with numerous genealogical charts of great value. Privately 
printed. Address: Author, No. 118 East 65th Street, New York City. 

This work is the result of the desire of the author to familiarize himself 
with his own ancestors and to hand the gathered information down to their 
descendants. The subject matter consists largely of charts showing the line 
of descent of the author from William 1 Wood, and subsidiary charts showing 
blood lines of collateral connections, with five lists showing: 1st, Descendants 
of John Kane and Maria Codwise ; 2nd, Descendants of Samuel Redmond 
and Anne Ramage; 3rd, those of Goold Hoyt and Sabina Sheaff ; 4th, those 
of James Wilmer and Ann Emerson; 5th, those of Jacques Benoit Felix de 
Chazournes and Marie Louise de Brugiere. 



1918.] Book Reviews. 209 

A most creditable piece of genealogical work; it is heartily recommended 
to all genealogical libraries. 

A History of the Adams Family of North Staffordshire and of Their 
Connection with the Development of the Potteries, with Numerous Pedi- 
gree Charts and Notes on Allied Families, by Percy Walter Lewis Adams, 
F. S. A., of Woore Manor, Near Crewe, England. Quarto, cloth, pp. 417+xliii, 
with 113 illustrations and full name index. Published 1914. St. Catherine 
Press, W. H. Smith and Son, Stamford Street, London, S. E., England. Price 
£2:2:0, postage extra. Address: Author or publishers. 

This volume is a notable example of the bookmaker's art; the illustrations 
are of artistic merit and the paper, typography and press work of high stand- 
ard excellence. From a literary standpoint the work bears all evidence of 
careful compilation and is an exhaustive presentment, written with a view to 
correcting the errors and confusion appearing in the accounts of the lives of 
three members of the Adams family, all of whom bore the name of William 
and who flourished in the XVIIIth century, one of these Williams having been 
the earliest recorded Master Potter of Staffordshire. The family originated 
in Burslem and Tunstall, two wooded and hilly districts in Pirehill Hundred. 
Besides the pedigree charts, the appendices present abstracts of the Wills of 
members of the family of Adams and other surnames from 1534 to 1793. By 
reference to pages 51-53, inclusive, we find that certain children of James 
Adams of Burslem emigrated to the United States in the early part of the 
XlXth century, and to the descendants of these children the work will be of 
immense interest. 

The work should be on the shelves of all genealogical and biographical 
libraries and in the libraries of all those interested in the genealogy of the 
Adams family.

delphia, Pa. (Second review.) 

In this day of active revival of interest in family history, authentic infor- 
mation relative to the English homes of the ancestors of Americans is most 
acceptable to the general public and especially so to those interested in gene- 
alogy. The author has made living pictures in the descriptions of those homes 
she has described and we are made intimately acquainted with the early home 
environment of the Washingtons, of the Pilgrim Brewster and Bradford, of 
William Penn, Benjamin Franklin's ancestral home at Ecton, homes of the 
Maryland and Virginia Cavaliers and others. The illustrations are most 
attractive and the descriptive text of an easy and intimate style that renders 
it most pleasing. Recommended to historical, biographical, genealogical and 
general reference libraries.

Elmer E. Doe, Orleans, Vt. 8vo, cloth, pp. 375, including name index, illus- 
trated with portrait plates. Price, $5.00. Address: Goodspeed's Book Shop-

Hampton Press, Bridgehampton, L. I., N.Y. 

A notable contribution to the history of Long Island. In dealing with the 
subject treated, the author gives us chapters on the various aspects in which

Ipsw:ch in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, Vol. II. By Thomas 
Franklin Waters, President of the Ipswich Historical Society. 8vo, cloth and 
boards, pp. 839, including an excellent name index and some 40 illustrations of 
interest and merit. Published 1917 by the Ipswich Historical Society. Price, 
$6.00, postage extra. Address: Goodspeed's Book Shop, No. 5a Park Street, 
Boston, Mass. 

The first volume of this valuable work was published in 1905 and had to 
do with the history of Ipswich from 1633 to 1700 and also with the original land 
grants of home lots and a record of their successive owners to the present 
time. We now after 12 long years of waiting have the second and final volume 
completing the set. The volume is worthy of, and will be received with the 
same gratifying favor that welcomed its predecessor, and the author is to be 
congratulated on the successful compilation and publication of so complete a 
history. The two volumes together with the published Vital Records of the 
Town of Ipswich will furnish about all of the information that genealogists will 
require concerning this important town in the early Massachusetts Bay Colony 
period. Recommended most heartily to all historical, genealogical and general 
reference libraries.

MATURIN LIVINGSTON DELAFIELD. 



By John Ross Delafield. 



Maturin Livingston Delafield was born at his father's residence, 
104 Franklin Street, New York City, on the 17th day of February, 
1836. His father, Major Joseph Delafield, was the second son of 
John Delafield of London and Buckinghamshire and Ann Hallett, 
his wife, one of the daughters and co-heiress of Joseph Hallett who 
served a number of times in the New York Provincial Congress and 
in all the Committees of Safety in the War of the Revolution. John 
Delafield, the oldest of his family, had removed to New York in 
1783, and conducted a successful business as broker, banker and 
underwriter, his residence being in New York City and also at 
Sunswick near Hell Gate, Long Island ; and it was in the country at 
Sunswick that Major Delafield and his brothers and sisters during 
childhood spent most of their time. Major Joseph Delafield, during 
the War of 1812, had first raised a company of volunteers which 
were long known as Delafield's Artillery. Then, with others, includ- 
ing Colonel Tallmadge, he recruited a regiment, known as the 46th 
Infantry, in the regular service, and in which he was made Major 
and served until the end of the War. Shortly after the termination 
of the War of 181 2, he was appointed Agent under the Sixth and 
Seventh Articles of the Treaty of Ghent and took charge of the 
American interests in the survey and establishing of the line between 
Canada and the United States. 

Maturin Livingston Delafield, the second son, was a man of the 
strongest family attachments, a trait that came not only from his 
father's family, but also from his mother who was Miss Julia Living- 
ston, the oldest child of Maturin Livingston and his wife, Margaret 
Lewis, who was the only child of the celebrated General Morgan 
Lewis. Julia Livingston was born at Staatsburgh, N. Y., on Septem- 
ber 15th, 1801, and died at Rhinebeck, N. Y., on January 23rd, 1882. 
Major Delafield was born in New York City on August 22nd, 1790, 
and died at his house, number 475 Fifth Avenue, New York City, 
on February 12th, 1875. In 1829, Major Delafield, through the

[July 



foreclosure of a mortgage he held, came into the possession of a 
farm and woodland of upwards of two hundred and fifty acres in 
the southerly part of what was then the town of Yonkers, in West- 
chester County. His father's country place at Sunswick had been 
sold, and wishing to give his children the advantages of life in the 
country in the warm weather, he built himself a lodge in the front 
of the Estate in a location having a beautiful view overlooking the 
Hudson River and the Palisades. The estate had a long frontage 
on the river, and extended back to the Post Road, now known as 
Broadway, reaching to within a few feet of what is now Van Cort- 
landt Park, then the property of Augustus Van Cortlandt. This 
property Major Delafield named Fieldston, after the old estate of 
his ancestors in County Dublin, Ireland, and it was here that Maturin 
Livingston Delafield, his older brother, Lewis Livingston Delafield, 
and his sister, Julia Livingston Delafield spent much of their time, 
both as children and in after years. After the fashion of those days, 
the children received their early education at home, and with the aid 
of tutors. Mr. Delafield and his brother then went to Columbia 
College, from which the former was graduated in 1856 and received 
the degree of Master of Arts in 1859. He entered the counting 
house of his uncle, Henry Delafield, who carried on a large business 
as merchant and banker, with the West Indies, and remained 
assisting his uncle in this business for two years, during which time 
he made a voyage as super-cargo on the brig Bohio to Porto Rico 
and Haiti. Then he engaged successfully in the West Indian trade, 
mostly with Haiti and Santo Domingo, on his own account, and 
having acquired a competence, retired from active business life 
about the year 1868. 

One of the enterprises which had interested him was the found- 
ing and management of the International Ocean Telegraph Company 
which laid the first submarine cable to Cuba. He was the first 
Treasurer, one of the directors, and one of the five principal stock- 
holders, the largest holders of the stock being his uncles, Robert J. 
Livingston and Maturin Livingston, and also Alexander Hamilton, 
Jr., and General Smith. In February, 1873, the Western Union 
Telegraph Company made an offer for the stock of this corporation, 
and Mr. Delafield, together with his uncles, and Mr. Hamilton, 
General Smith, and most of the other stockholders, sold their hold- 
ings of stock at a very substantial profit. During the great Civil 
War, he was much in Washington and, though not in the Army or 
Navy, did much work of a confidential nature for President Lincoln 
and his cabinet, with the members of which he had come in close 
touch at first through his uncle, General Richard Delafield. 

On the first day of December, 1868, he married Mary Coleman, 
born 17 August, 1847, the only surviving child of Eugene Augustus 
Livingston of Clermont-on-Hudson, N. Y., by his first wife Harriet, 
the only child to leave issue of Edward and Mary Jane (Ross) 
Coleman, of Philadelphia, Pa. The wedding was at Trinity Chapel, 



igi8.] Maturin Livingston Delafield. 2 I 5 

New York City, and was conducted by the Rt. Rev. Henry Adams 
Neely, Bishop of Maine, who had married Miss Mary Floyd Dela- 
field, and by the Rev. Walter Delafield. Wishing to continue to live 
at Fieldston, he bought part of the Estate from his father, and built 
himself a stone residence there in 1869. Several winters during 
the severe weather, at the invitation of his father, Major Delafield, 
he brought his family to New York, and stayed at 475 Fifth Avenue 
for a number of weeks. Finding the hot weather of midsummer 
on the Hudson River did not agree with his children, he purchased 
some forty or fifty acres at Westhampton, Long Island, and in 1876, 
built himself a country house there, facing Quantuck Bay. This 
property he called Sunswyck after the country place of his grand- 
father near Hell Gate. He had also the care of the large estate of 
his wife (1198 acres) at Ross Meadows on the Allegheny River, 
Pennsylvania, which had come down to her by descent from Senator 
James Ross, the friend and sometimes legal adviser of George Wash- 
ington. Some years after the death of his parents, and about the year 
1884, in order to obtain additional advantages for his children, he 
rented the house at 475 Fifth Avenue from his brother and sister, and 
for many years thereafter, spent the winter months with his family in 
that house, going to Fieldston for the spring and autumn season 
and to Sunswyck for the warm months of summer. Mr. and Mrs. 
Delafield regulated their lives entirely by considerations for the 
best interests of their eight children, and this plan of life was 
chosen entirely with such object in view, and in order to give them 
not only every advantage of education, but also the best health. 
Their wisdom and foresight has been abundantly justified. Of their 
eight children all grew to manhood and womanhood strong and 
healthy, and all are still living. Mr. Delafield lived not only in the 
happiness of a singularly united family, but also to see and to know, 
his twenty-one grandchildren. He died peacefully on the fifth of 
November, 1917, at his home at Fieldston, having retained full 
possession of his faculties to the end. His time had been occupied 
in caring for his family and his property, and in certain literary 
pursuits in which he took much interest. In 1905, the house at 
475 Fifth Avenue was rented to the Farmers' Loan and Trust 
Company as its uptown office, and Mr. Delafield subsequently bought 
a house, number 82 East 79th Street, at the corner of Park Avenue, 
where he made his winter home. Though the owner in fee of 
Montgomery Place at Barrytown, N. Y., the home of Janet Living- 
ston, widow of General Richard Montgomery, died Quebec, 1775, he 
did not occupy it, as it was held by life tenants. This property came 
to him under the will of Cora Livingston Barton, only child of the 
celebrated Edward Livingston, by reason of his close relationship 
to and descent from the Livingstons, and of his marriage. 

His sister, Miss Julia Livingston Delafield, lived much of the 
time with her brother and his family, at first at Fieldston and 
Sunswyck, and subsequently at 475 Fifth Avenue, and during the 
later years of her life, she always lived with them. She died in his 



2 1 6 Afalurin Livingston Delafield. [July 

house at Fieldston on the ioth of November, 1914. In order to 
remain near their parents, three of his sons and two daughters made 
their homes at Fieldston, there being ample room for their houses 
on the parts of the Estate that had not passed into the ownership of 
others. Another son made his summer home at Quiogue, West- 
hampton, on land given him by his father. 

Of his children, the oldest (1) Maturin Livingston Delafield, 
Jr., was born at his grandfather's house, 475 Fifth Avenue, New 
York City, on September 29th, 1869. He married Honorine Julia 
Elizabeth Daniel de Pernay, only child of Count Alphonse Pierre 
Eugene Daniel de Pernay, Admiral in the French Navy, the recipient 
of many decorations for distinguished service, and one of the cele- 
brated line of the Counts Daniel de Pernay. There are no issue 
of this marriage. Mr. and Mrs. Delafield live in Switzerland. (2) 
Joseph Livingston Delafield, born at his grandfather's residence, 
475 Fifth Avenue, New York City, 19th March, 1871, and married 
Mary Renwick, daughter of Professor William M. and Mary E. 
(Johnston) Sloane. They have two sons and three daughters, and 
reside in New York City. (3) John Ross Delafield, born at his 
father's residence, at Fieldston, New York City, 8th May, 1874; 
married Violetta S. E. White, daughter of John Jay and Louisa 
Lawrence (Wetmore) White, and has two sons and one daughter. 
(4) Julia Livingston Delafield, born at her father's residence, Field- 
ston, New York City, 14th October, 1875 ; married Frederick 
William Longfellow, and has one son and two daughters. (5) 
Edward Coleman Delafield, born at his father's residence at Suns- 
wyck, Westhampton Beach, Long Island, N. Y. ; on the ioth of July, 
1877; married Margaretta Stockton Beasley, daughter of Mercer 
and Mary (Stockton) Beasley, of Trenton. N. J., and has two sons 
and two daughters. (6) Mary Livingston Delafield, born at her 
father's residence at Fieldston, New York City, 23rd November, 
1878; married Edward Ridley Finch, Justice of the Supreme Court 
of the State of New York, and has one daughter. (7) Harriet Cole- 
man Delafield, born at her father's residence at Fieldston, New York 
City, 7th May, 1880; married Jarvis Pomeroy Carter, and has two 
sons and one daughter. (8) Eugene Livingston Delafield, born 
at his father's residence, at Sunswyck, Westhampton Beach, Long 
Island, N. Y., 16th August, 1882; married Margarett N. Woodhull, 
only child of Rev. John Tennet and Margarett Schurman (Nevius) 
Woodhull, and has one son and one daughter. 

Mr. Maturin L. Delafield was tall, strong and erect, over six 
feet in height, with fair complexion, light hair and blue eyes. His 
height was characteristic of his family of which the men have been 
unusually tall for a number of generations, a quality which still 
persists in all its branches, his own sons all being well over six feet 
in height. His outdoor life, of which he was so fond, doubtless aided 
in the strength, health and long life he enjoyed. Mr. Delafield 
belonged to a number of the principal clubs and associations of 



iqi8.] Minutes of the Amsterdam Chamber 21 J 

New York. He was a founder and Vice-President of the Delafield 
Family Association from its organization until his death. He took 
much interest in his friends and this, together with the information 
that came of wide reading and study of history, which he particularly 
enjoyed, and his personal charm, made him always a delightful 
friend and companion. 



MINUTES OF THE AMSTERDAM CHAMBER OF THE 
DUTCH WEST INDIA COMPANY, 1635-1636. 



Contributed by A. J. F. van Laer. 



The following pages contain translations from a hitherto practi- 
cally unknown volume of minutes of the Amsterdam Chamber of 
the Dutch West India Company which on account of its early date 
is of unusual interest as a source for the history of New Netherland. 

The original record, which is deposited among the national 
archives at The Hague, is a large folio volume of 221 leaves, which 
is bound in parchment and lettered on the back "Resolutien No. 6, 
Amsteldam, van PP° January, 1635 tot ultimo December, 1636." 
As far as known it is the only volume of proceedings of the Amster- 
dam Chamber that has been preserved, the other volumes having 
apparently been destroyed in 1821, when according to John Romeyn 
Brodhead "all the books, documents and paper of every kind, be- 
longing to the old East and West India Companies, of a date prior 
to 1700," were sold at public auction by order of the government of 
the Netherlands. The volume is designated in the catalogue of the 
archives as No. 14 of the records of the old West India Company 
and is referred to by that number, without any indication as to the 
nature of its contents, in the list of extant records of the Company 
which appears on pages 124-25 of the first volume of the Report 
of the United States Commission on Boundary between Venezuela 
and British Guiana. Just recently attention has been directed to 
the volume through the publication of a few extracts in a Dutch 
work, by Dr. J. S. C. Jessurun, entitled Kiliaen van Rensselaer van 
1622 to 161,6. The following entries, which were copied by the 
writer in the summer of 1910 in the course of a general examination 
of the records of the Company, are with exception of those of June 
14, 1635, and October 28, 1636, not found in Dr. Jessurun's book. 
They have been selected on account of their bearing on New Nether- 
land history and are believed to include with the minutes that are 
printed by Dr. Jessurun practically everything in the volume that is 
of interest in connection with that history. The relatively small 
number of these entries is accounted for by the fact that in 1635- 
1636, the Company made extensive preparations to complete the 
conquest of Brazil, so that the majority of the entries in the record 



2i8 Minutes of the Amsterdam Chamber of the [July 

deal with matters that are related to Brazil rather than with the 
affairs of the comparatively unimportant colony of New Netherland. 
It is interesting to note in this connection that according to Johannes 
de Laet's well known work entitled Historie Ofte Iaerlijck Verhael 
Van de Verrichtinghen der Geoctroyeerde West-Indischc Compagnie, 
which gives a detailed account of the warlike operations of the 
Company from 1623 to the end of 1636, the Amsterdam Chamber 
alone, during the years 1635-1636, sent out to Pernambuco no less 
than 47 vessels, with a total of 1323 sailors and 1624 soldiers. Con- 
sidering that during the same period probably not more than four or 
five ships were despatched to New Netherland, it is not surprising 
that the number of entries in the record relating to the respective 
colonies should bear a somewhat similar proportion. 

As the notes that are appended to the minutes are intended to 
cover the points that are of special interest, no further comment is 
believed to be necessary. Particular attention is called, however, to 
the entry of October 11, 1635, relating to the service of Petrus 
Stuyvesant at Fernando de Noronha; the entries of November 15 
and December 3, 1635, relating to the murder of Joris Hontom by 
Comelis van Vorst ; the entry of November 26, 1635, relative to the 
engagement of English soldiers; that of September 11, 1636, relat- 
ing to the grant of land on Manhattan island to Hendrick de Forest ; 
and finally that of December 8, 1636, whch brings out the curious 
fact that Captain David Pietersen de Vries applied to the Amsterdam 
Chamber to be sent as Director General to New Netherland. 

[January, 1635] 
[folio 9] Dominus Kesselerus 1 states that a request having been 
made to look about for a ministerial candidate, one Fredericus 
Vitteus has presented himself, whom the Consistory judge well 
qualified for the charge. His reverence receives for answer that as 
soon as we fit out, [the appointment of] the said young man shall 
with [that of] others be taken into consideration.

1 Rev. Fredericus Kesselerus. He came from Stolberg, Germany, to 
Amsterdam in 1626, and from 1636 to 1643 was a minister in Brazil. At the 
date of the entry he was apparently one of the depittati ad res lndicas of the 
Consistory of Amsterdam, who had charge of the selection of ministers and 
comforters of the sick for the colonies until January, 1636, when the Classis 
took control of such matters. See Ecclesiastical Records- of the State of New 
York, vol. 7, Index, p. 20 and p. 32. note. 

2 Frederick de Vries, secretary of the city of Amsterdam and a director 
of the Amsterdam Chamber of the Dutch West India Company. In 1638 he 
associated himself with David Pietersen de Vries to establish a colony on 
Staten Island. See J. E. Elias, de Vroedschap van Amsterdam. 1:280; and 
J. F. Jameson, Narratives of New Netherland, p. 190. 

3 This man is not identified. Vechter, literally, Fighter, is occasionally 
used in the sense of soldier, but here seems to be used as a given name.

5 Probably the same person as Jacob Alrichs who in 1656 was appointed 
director of the colony of New Amstel on the Delaware. See Doc. Rel. to 
Col. Hist. N. Y., 12:132; and Van Rensselaer Bowicr MSS., p. 271, 273. 

6 A nickname, indicating apparently that Pieter Jacobsen had been a 
supercargo on the ship West India Raven. 

7 Probably a relative of Capt. Jan Cornelissen Keert de Koe, whom the 
Chamber of the Noorder-Quartier sent in 1629 with his ship Griffioen to 
Brazil to strengthen the fleet under Admiral Adriaen Jansen Pater. See De 
Laet, Historic Ofte Iaerlijck Vcrhael Van de Verrichtinghen der Geoctro-

[26v] Whereas divers married people, both soldiers and free 
persons, going to Brazil and elsewhere within the limits of our 
Charter, represent themselves as being unmarried, it is resolved that 
every one who is married must exhibit his marriage certificate here 
and have it endorsed respectively by the Board of Accounts and 
by the Committee who hire the people, and on arrival at their destina-

11 In Van Rensselaer Bowier MSS., p. 313 and 315, Jacob Ysbrantsen is 
mentioned as master of the Sevenster under date of May 24, 1635. 

12 He was afterwards master of the ship Haring, in which Director 
General Kieft came to New Netherland. See N. Y. Col. MSS., 1:158.

Gysbert Op Dyck, see C. W. Opdyck, The Op Dyck Genealogy, p. 46-69. 

14 Pieter Pietersen Bylevelt was recalled from New Netherland in 1631 
and sold his cattle on farm No. 3 to Kiliaen van Rensselaer on July 20. 1632, 
when he was in Amsterdam. He probably returned to Holland with Director 
Peter Minuit on the Eendracht in the spring of 1632. See Van Rensselaer

favorable letters to the King of England, in order that the English- 
men who in the service of the Company should happen to come to

fairly and offered good terms. 

Thursday, 10 January, 1636 
[nov] Bastiaen Jansen Crol requests the balance of his account. 

26 Bastiaen Jansen Crol, or Krol, from Harlingen, Friesland, was a caffa 
werker, or silk worker, by trade. He married in 1615, at Amsterdam, at the 
age of 20 years, Annetjen Stoffel's daughter, from Eesen, aged 21. Krol 
made his first voyage to New Netherland as comforter of the sick in Jan., 
1624, and on Nov. 14, 1624, was back at Amsterdam. He sailed again for New 
Netherland probably in May or June, 1625, and was commander of Fort 
Orange from Sept., 1626, to 1629, when he returned to Holland. He sailed 
for the third time to New Netherland shortly after Jan. 12, 1630, and was 
once more commander of Fort Orange until the end of February, or begin- 
ning of March, 1632, when he succeeded Peter Minuit as Director General 
of New Netherland. He held the latter office until the arrival of Wouter 
van Twiller in April, 1633 ; then, at the latter's request, returned for a few 
weeks to Fort Orange to prevent Eelkens from trading there and finally 
sailed for Holland in July, 1633. He seems to have remained there for three 
or four years, but in 1638 he was again commissary of Fort Orange. In 
1643 he was still in New Netherland, but on Sept. 21, 1645, he was back in 
Amsterdam. The date of his death is unknown. See A. Eekhof, Bastiaen 

/arisen Krol, published at s'-Gravenhage in 1910. 

27 This entry is of interest because it marks the transfer of the duty of 
selecting ministers for the colonies from the Consistory to the Classis of 
Amsterdam. Rev. Henricus Geeldorpius and Rev. Johannes Mourcourtius were 
Deputati ad res Indicas, originally appointed by the Consistory, but who at 
this time began to report to the Classis. Joachim Soler, or Solerus, was 
minister at Recife, Brazil, from 1636 to 1644. See Ecclesiastical Records of 
the State of New York, p. 88 ; A. Eekhof, Bastiaen Jansen Krol, p. 23. 



224 Minutes of Ihe Amsterdam Chamber of the [July 

14 January, 1636 
[112] The presiding officer states that Bastiaen Jansen Crol claims 
payment according to his account for the delivery of brick burned 
in New Netherland 28 and that upon inquiry it appears that the said 
brick was worthless. It is therefore decided to make further inquiry 
through the Commissioners. 

18 February, 1636 
[120] Cornelis Volckertsen 29 requests payment of the wages 
earned by Phillips de Truiex, according to the certificate of the

[129] Mr. de Vries having stated that one Lenard Lenardtsen 
van Tol in New Netherland claims some extra compensation for 
repairing Fort Orange, as he received but 10 guilders whereas others 
have had 18 guilders, it is decided that he is not entitled to more. 

19 May, 1636 
[137V] A letter was read from Henrick Feyth, burgomaster of 
the city of Elburgh, dated the 28th of May [April?] 1636, recom-

dates to Brazil, as one Franciscus Plants 30 , who studied at the 

28 Kiliaen van Rensselaer, in his letter to Wouter van Twiller, dated 
April 23, 1634, refers to this brick which he says was made from clay taken 
from his land. See Van Rensselaer Bowier MSS., p. 283 ; see also same 
volume, p. 160 and 207. 

s ' Cornelis Volckertsen from Kniphausen, near the present Wilhelms- 
haven, in Oldenburg, Germany. See entry under date of Nov. 6, 1636. His 
connection with Philippe du Trieux makes it practically certain that he was 
the ancestor of the Viele family, who married Maria du Trieux, the daughter 
of Philippe. See iV. Y. Col. MSS., 2:4; also Kathlyne Knickerbocker Viele, 
Sketches of Allied Families Knickerbocker-Viele, part second, in which an 
effort is made to show that Cornelis Volkertszen, one of the directors of the 
New Netherland Company, was named Velius and that he was the ancestor 
of the Viele family. 

30 Franciscus Plante served in 1637 as a chaplain in the army in Brazil 
and in 1638 became third minister at Recife. He left in 1643 or 1644.

the yacht F'arnambuco, and who was captured by the enemy in 
Porto Calvo, requests as before payment of his account up to the 
date of his capture. 

Thursday, 4 September, 1636 
[175] The following persons are appointed supercargoes : 
Jan Jansen van Ilpendam, on the ship Renselaer 33 , to New 

Netherland, at 24 guilders per month. 
Jan Jansen Corver from Weesp, at 18 guilders per month, on 

Abraham's Offerhande. 

Pieter Rotterdam, on the ship Sutphen, at 20 guilders per month. 

Jan Jansen van Ilpendam requests payment of 60 guilders, which 

were due him when he was captured and of which he has not been 

able to bring home on account owing to his imprisonment. Rejected 

for the sake of consistency. 

8 September, 1636 

[176V] Claes Claessen Bordingh 34 , engaged as mate on the ship 
Sutphen, at 36 guilders. 

Mr. Renselaer appearing before the meeting requests an extraor-

11 September, 1636 
[177V] Henrick de Foreest requests a patent for 100 morgens 
of land granted him by the Council in New Netherland subject to 
the approval of this Chamber, on condition that he pay the dues pre- 
scribed by the regulations ; all more fully set forth by his petition. 
Referred to the Commissioners of New Netherland 35 . 

31 Perhaps a brother of Dirck Stypel, who is mentioned in Van Rensselaer 
Bowier MSS., p. 452, 458. 

32 Jan Jansen van Ilpendam was afterwards commissary at the South 
River. His wife was Catalyntje Strassel. He died before August, 1647. See

for many years thereafter a resident of New Amsterdam. 

35 Hendrick de Forest sailed soon after the date of this entry for New 
Netherland as mate on the ship Rensselaerswyck, which arrived at Man- 
hattan on March 5, 1637. The supposition has been heretofore that he 
immediately after his arrival secured a grant from Wouter van Twiller for 
one hundred morgens of land on Manhattan Island. The present entry shows 
that this grant was secured at an earlier date; consequently that De Forest

of New Netherland. 

22 September, 1636 
[182] Whereas Franciscus Plante 36 is reported by the Classis to 
be capable to go as minister to Brazil, it is resolved to authorize said 
gentlemen to speak with him and then to cause the Classis or the 
Consistory of this city to extend a call. The aforesaid committee 
shall also request the Consistory to look out for two comforters of 
the sick. 

25 September, 1636 

[183] The president states the conditions on which Jacob 
Alrichs 37 is willing to accept the position of bookkeeper in Brazil. 

1 That on his return he shall be allowed to resume his former 
duties. 

2 That he shall be firmly engaged for three years at 200 guilders 
per month and that he shall have the option to stay the fourth 
year, provided he receive one hundred guilders more per 
month. 

3 That he shall receive 600 guilders as a gratuity for past 
services and in case he should die within the first six months, 
that the six months' wages shall nevertheless be paid. 

4 That he shall have free access to the board of political 
councilors. 

5 And finally, that he shall receive board and lodging like the 
political councilors. 

Whereupon after deliberation it is voted that the 2d, 3d and 5th 
points be granted and the 1st and 4th rejected. Said resolution 
being communicated to the said Jacob Alrichs, he has refused and 
thanked the Company for its offer. 

27 September, 1636 

[183V] A letter was read from Pieter Claessen Croon, dated the

246 Thachcr-Thatchtr Genealogy. [July 

Vol. 44, pp. 137-8, No. 236. From Census of Pensioners in the United States 
in 184.0, we secure the name of Polly Thacher of Yarmouth, who was 82 years 
old in 1840. 1840 less 82 equals 1758. It would therefore appear that the pen- 
sioner Polly Thacher was probably the widow of Col. Thomas 6 Thacher 
(No. 236). 

Vol. 44, p. 138. 6th line from top, Gershorn should read Gershom. 
Vol. 44, p. 142, No. 797. From the burying ground at St. John's New 
Brunswick, we obtain the following inscriptions, viz: — 

1st " In memory of Rebekah, the wife of Thatcher Sears, who died 13th 

of July, 1803, aged 45 years." 
2nd "Sacred to the memory of Mr. Thatcher Sears, who departed this 
life, A.D. 1819, aged 67; he was a Connecticut Loyalist, &c, &c." 
Vol. 44, p. 147, No. 260. In the record of the Hollis Street Church in Bos- 
ton, Mass. (on file in the City Hall, Boston), we find this entry: — " Mary Thacher 
died November 9th, 1815, aged 80 years." Hence she was born about 1735. It 
is more than probable that this Mary Thacher of the Hollis Street Church was 
the second wife and widow of No. 260. 

Vol. 44, pp. 241-2, No. 266. In the N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record, vol. xxxiv, 
p. 298 (in an article on Christ Church Records of Salem, Westchester Co., N. Y.), 
we find this entry: — "1812. December 19th, departed this life, Isaac Hayes, aged 
45;" hence he was born 1767. It would appear that this Isaac Hayes was 
possibly a son of Ann 6 Thacher, No. 266, by her husband Isaac Hayes, and if 
such was the case he was possibly a twin with No. 840. 

Vol. 44, pp. 242-3, No. 269. According to Mrs. Mary A. Hearn (a descendant 
of No. 269) of Cobleskill, N. Y., Daniel 6 Thacher was married at Norwalk, Conn.,

Cherry Street, home address No. 119 Monroe Street." I imagine that this was

many months, and his remains were cremated at the Massachusetts Crematory, 
Forest Hills, Mass., and placed in family tomb in Dorchester North Burial 
Ground. He was in the paint business and about 1915 built a large factory 
under the firm name of " Means and Thacher, Incorporated," at Quincy, Mass. 
He was a member of the Boston Chamber of Commerce and of the " Paint and 
Oil Club " of Boston, and of many Masonic bodies, in which order he was very 
prominent, having had the 33rd degree conferred upon him in 1915. 

Vol. 47, p. 144, No. 1462, 6th line from bottom of page. George Hunger- 
ford 9 Thacher should read George Hanford 9 Thacher. 

Vol. 47, pp. 152-3, No. 1484. From the Middle Patent Burying Ground, 
near North Castle, Westchester Co., N. Y., we secure the following graveyard 
inscriptions: — 

1. "Thatcher — Emma Matilda, daughter of George and Clarissa J 

Thatcher, died September 4th, 1860, aged 4 years, 6 months" 
[hence born March — , 1856]. 

2. "Thatcher, George E , died April 16th, 1862, aged 39 years, 7 

months and 19 days" [h&nce born August 28th, 1822J. 

The question is, could this George E Thatcher have been No. 2269 (son 

of No. 1484). According to Holden's Descendants of Robert Lockwood and also 
according to Selleck's Norwa/k, p. 457, No. 2269 died "very young." If these 
two authorities are correct in their statements, then the above graveyard in- 
scriptions could not be on the grave of No. 2269. It has occurred to me that 
perhaps No. 1484 had a second son, George E. Thatcher, born after No. 2270, 
and that he may have been the one whose gravestone we note above. If this 
surmise is correct then we have a fifth child of Philo 8 and Cynthia (Lockwood) 
Thatcher. 

2270a v. George E 9 Thatcher, born August 28th, 1822; died April 

16th, 1862, aged 39 years, 7 months and 19 days, and was

i. Emma Matilda, 10 born March — , 1856, died September 4th, 
i860, aged 4 years and 6 months, and was buried in Middle 
Patent Graveyard, North Castle, N. Y. 
This is a question to be definitely settled. I know of no other George (or 

George E ) Thatcher to meet the requirements of the graveyard inscription 

except the one supplied by the above argument. 
Vol. 47, p. 160, No. 2303 should read No. 2302. 

Vol. 47, p. 274, No. 1560. According to the Barber Genealogy, pp. 167-8, 
No. 1560 died on December 4th, 1869, but I am inclined to think December 
14th, 1869, is correct. 

Vol. 47, p. 276, No. 1572. Barber Genealogy, pp. 167-8, incorrectly states 
that Seth Dickinson Graves died July loth, 1873; according to statement of his 
son Miles Wells 9 Graves he died July 30th, 1873. 

Vol. 47, p. 277, No. 1573. According to Barber Genealogy, pp. 167-8 Eliel 
Tobev 8 Thacher died December nth, 1894, which is incorrect; his age at death 
should read 82 years, 9 months and 19 days. 

Vol. 47, p. 278, Nos. 2371 and 2372 should read +2371 and +2372. 

Vol. 47, pp. 370-1, No. 1656, should read as follows: —

John, 4 etc. ), born January 29th, 1822, at Boston, Mass., and bap- 
tized there in Old South Church, March 31st, 1822; died at Newton 
Center, Mass., November 20th, 1879, aged 57-9-20, and was there 
buried; she married April 5th, 1842 (April 6th, 1843, according to

first child), at , to Wilson Jarvis Hunt of Newton Center, Mass. ; 

he was a lawyer and was born January 9th, 1818, at Pennington,

Editorial: — Mr. Totten's articles on the descendants of 
Antony 2 Thacher will cease to be published in this quarterly with 
this number which completes the record of the ninth generation. 
The articles give to all those descendants now living ample data 
by means of which they can trace their Thacher-Thatcher blood 
back to their earliest known ancestor of that surname. It is the 
purpose of Mr. Totten to publish in separate pamphlet form the 
complete record of the 10th generation, which pamphlet those 
interested can obtain, when ready for issue, from the New York 
Genealogical and Biographical Society; it is expected that this 
10th generation will be ready for delivery about May 1st, 1919. 

Mr. Totten has ready for publication an equally voluminous 
and exhaustive record of the descendants of Rev. Thomas 3 
Thacher of Old South Church, Boston, Mass. (1620-1678), a 
nephew of Antony 2 Thacher of Yarmouth; and if the living de- 
scendants of Rev. Thomas 3 Thacher guarantee generous support 
of a similar series of articles on the descendants of their ancestor, 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society may enter- 
tain propositions to publish the same. 

Mr. Totten has also a very complete record of Samuel 1 
Thatcher of Watertown (in no way at present identified with 
Antony 2 of Yarmouth or with Rev. Thomas 8 of Old South Church) 
which may in time be published either by him or by this Society. 

In the process of compiling the records of these three specific 
branches of the Thacher-Thatcher family in the United States of 
America, the compiler has collected and segregated fairly com- 
plete records of the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Thatchers, all 
of which records are at free disposal of the New York Genealogical 
and Biographical Society, which Society on account of its free 
access to these compilations, is prepared to arrange and register 
in its Department for the Registration of Pedigrees the pedigree 
of any descendant of Rev. Thomas 8 Thacher of Old South Church, 
Boston, or of Samuel 1 Thatcher of Watertown. Correspondence 
with the Society on the subject of such registration of pedigrees 
is therefore solicited.

264 Ward of Counecticut. [July 

Deductions from the Foregoing Evidences. 
Richard Ward of Stretton, co. Rutland, will dated 22 April, 
proved 2 Oct., 1635; buried at Stretton, 19 July, 1635; married (1) 

; m. (2) Joice , who survived him and emigrated to 

New England, where she made her will at Wethersfield, Conn., 
15 Nov., 1640. 

Child by first wife: 

i. Thomas. Legatee with his children in his father's will 
in 1635* 

Children by second wife: 

ii. Mary, b. about 1607; m. John Fletcher, sometime of 
Wethersfield, later of Milford, Conn. He deposed 
16 Oct., 1661, aged 59. Their dau. Mary was bap. at 
Stretton, co. Rutland, 10 May, 1633. 

iii. Edward, legatee, under father's will, of his father's shop, 
tools, house and homestead; buried at Stretton, co. 

Rutland, 3 Feb., 1662-3; m - Isabell , who was 

buried there June, 1664. Children: Mary, bap. 24 
June, 1637; buried 6 March, 1682-3. John, bap. 20 
May, 1639; buried 21 Dec, 1679. Samuel, bap. 11 
Jan., 1640-41. Rebecca, buried 12 July, 1664. 

iv. Anthony. 

v. William. 

vi. Robert, 
vii. John, of Branford, Conn. Deposed 16 Oct., 1661, aged 

36- 
viii. Richard, buried at Stretton, 30 Nov., 1631. 

ix. Richard, buried at Stretton, 1633. 

Of the above children Authony, William and Robert are 
supposed, by Savage, to have accompanied their mother to New 
England; but apart from the nature of the legacy she left them, 
"ech a pare of sheets," and the assumption that a widowed 
mother, emigrating to a country from which she could have little 
hope of ever returning, would naturally take her younger children 
with her, there is no evidence to support the supposition. Her 
will, on the contrary, goes to show that she had apprenticed 
Robert to a trade before she left England, and as Robert was 
the youngest of the three it is only reasonable to infer that she 
had already done the like by the other two, Anthony and William. 
That the latter was not William Ward of Middleton, Conn., as 
Savage further suggests, will be conclusively proved in a future 
article. 

( To be continued.) 

* This may be that Thomas Ward of Edith Weston, co. Rutland, yeoman, 
whose will, dated 24 June, 1628, proved 22 July, 1641, names wife Faith (who 
predeceased her husband), son Robert, daughter Anne, wife of William Bran- 
ston, and daughter Elizabeth, afterward wife of Thomas Wells. (Peterborough 
Wills.)

GENEALOGICAL GLEANINGS FROM LAND AND 

PROBATE RECORDS AT WHITE PLAINS AND 

RYE, NEW YORK. 

(See Descriptive Map, April. 1918, issue.) 



Collected and Contributed by Theresa Hall Bristol. 



(Continued from Vol. XLIX, p. 176. of the Record.) 

The records show that by the time the Royal Patent of White 
Plains was applied for, in 1721, almost all of those whose names 
are given on the first available list were deceased, and that all the 
land, except some very small sections, had been portioned out in 
what were called, the second, third and fourth division. "The fifth 
or last division," so many times mentioned, was made about 1740. 
This left-over land was in the extreme northern and southern ends 
of the Patent, in two small tracts, and a few acres were laid out to 
each of the original owners of the White Plains land, or to their 
immediate successors.* The second draft of White Plains land 
was made, probably about 1683, as the list given includes practic- 
ally all the names of the original Rye settlers. (Bolton's History of 
Westchester County, Vol. 2, pp. ijq, 540.) The names of those who 
received land in Rye under the Hartford grant only are not on this 
first White Plains list of names. Mr. Bolton states in his second 

♦From White Plains Mortgages, Liber C, p. 144, 1776: "William Barker. 
Jr., mortgaged to Gilbert Horton, land which William Barker lately purchased 
from Jeremiah Coon ; which sd. Coon purchased from Caleb Huestis ; and 
which Caleb Huestis purchased from George French, John Travis, Capt. 
Jonathan Purdy, Benjamin Horton and Elisha Budd ; and contains the 
following lots, to wit : — a lot laid out to the right of Francis Purdy ; a lot 
laid out to the right of John Merritt ; a lot laid out to the right of John 
Galpin ; a lot laid out to the right of Philip Galpin which Caleb Huestis 
purchased of George French; a lot which Caleb Huestis purchased of John 
Travis ; a lot which Caleb Huestis purchased of Capt. Jonathan Purdy, laid 
out to Thos. Denham ; all of aforesaid lots in the 5th div. of White Plains 
Purchase. A lot which sd. Caleb Huestis purchased of Joseph Horton in sd. 
$th div.. laid out in the right of Benjamin Horton. The lots being butted and 
bounded by one another, and whole, except the lot Caleb Huestis purchased 
of Elisha Budd, is bounded as follows : — Beginning at a stone which is set 
up in the lot which Caleb Huestis purchased of Joseph Horton and is a 
corner bound between Wm. Barker's land & land of Jonathan Purdy dee'd., 
standing near or by the road that leadeth over the Mamaroneck river north 
by Caleb Horton's land to the White Plains ; to run from thence E. as the 
road runneth to the bridge over the Mamaroneck river; down sd. river til it 
meets with Caleb Horton's land: W. along the line of Caleb Horton's land 
until it comes to the road that leadeth up to Capt. David Ogden's land ; W. 
until it meets with sd. Jonathan Purdy's land ; N. along the line of sd. Purdy's 
land to the first mentioned bounds. The lot which Caleb Huestis purchased 
of Elisha Budd is bounded as follows: — N. by a stone wall of Caleb Horton 
aforesaid; E. by the Mamaroneck river; W. by the road that leadeth up to 
Caleb Horton's ; being a three-cornered lot. Above lots containing 24^4 acres.

1918.] White Plains and Rye, IV. Y. 293 

edition of the History of Westchester County, that Liber A of the 
Rye records has been missing since 1848. It was from this record 
that he took this only available list, which he calls "the second 
draft." The list which follows this 1683 list so closely in all of the 
histories, contains the names of those who applied for the patent in 

1721, and the applicants are the descendants and successors of the 
first owners. Two of those who applied for the patent in 1721, Hum- 
phrey Underhill and his son-in-law, Joseph Budd, were deceased 
before the patent was granted the next year. Instead of massing the 
bits of information regarding these first owners, all of Rye, and 
many of whom were deceased even before the land was surveyed and 
laid out, it has been decided to give the 1683 list, and show as far as 
possible those who sold out, and those who had descendants who 
settled upon the land. 

A careful study of the records, makes it appear that these Rye 
men who did not sell out their White Plains holdings, gave their 
Rye, and other lands, to their legal heirs (oldest sons), and their 
White Plains lands to younger sons. 

John 2 Brondage was deceased Oct. 2, 1697, when an account of 
the settlement of his estate was given. He left a widow Hannah ; 
sons John, Joseph, Daniel and Joshua "Brondag;" daughters Ruth 
Scofield, Mary Brondag and Hannah Brondag. (Fairfield Probate 
Records, Liber 1, p. 14.) When the estate of John Brondage was 
settled by mutual agreement of the heirs, it was decided that Daniel 
Brondage should have the White Plains land as his share. (Rye 
Land Records, Liber B, p. 86.) In addition to this inheritance from 
his father, Daniel Brondage bought up the rights of several of the 
patentees, and their homelots, which had been laid out to them on 
"the highway," as it was then called. He applied, in June, 1721, with 
Samuel Hunt (see preceding Humphrey Underhill notes), for a 
survey of the White Plains land, that they might "ascertain the land 
belonging to them." In November the other inhabitants of White 
Plains, headed by David Ogden and Caleb Hyatt, protested against 
the granting of this survey until they should be heard from. In 
December, Samuel Hunt and Daniel Brondage sent in another peti- 
tion for a survey, claiming 380 acres for Samuel Hunt, and 300 acres 
for Daniel Brondage. A map of White Plains was filed Feb. 24, 

1722. This has been published in the several histories of the county, 
and the lines given upon it for the Brondage patent are the lines 
used on the map accompanying this description. Daniel Brondage 
finally received a patent for 195 acres, and Samuel Hunt for 294. 
(New York Calendar of Land Papers, p. 154, etc.) It appears that 
Daniel Brondage did not receive a patent for his land on White 
Plains St. (land which he had purchased) but only for the land 
above the Long Meadow brook. The other land, below the brook, 
and running to the highway, was however always described as lying 
"within Daniel Brondage 's patent;" the earliest account of its trans- 
fer to be found, is in 1730, when Jonathan Hiatt sold to Caleb Hiatt 
land still described as lying "within the Brondage Patent." (West- 
chester Co. Land Records, Liber G, p. 174.) 



2 g4 Genealogical Gleanings from Land and Probate Records at [July 

As before stated, Samuel Hunt had a corn mill at the lower end 
of the Patent. In 1726, Benjamin, son of Daniel Brondage, entered 
into an agreement with John Walton to build "a grist mill by the 
brook that runs out of Long Meadow, and so near said Brondage's 
house," but "said Brondage has desired to throw up his part and 
hath received 30 shillings, that sd. Walton may have forever a privi- 
lege to build, erect, maintain," etc., "a mill on any part of land 
belonging to, or contained in, sd. Brondage's father's, viz., Mr. 
Daniel Brondage's Patent of land in White Plains," etc. (West- 
chester Co. Land Records, Liber F, p. 243.) Evidently John Walton 
built the mill, for in 1729, John Walton of Norwich, Conn., sold to 
Daniel Brondage of White Plains, "The corn mill, standing near 
the upper end of White Plains Patent, and near Benjamin Brond- 
age's dwelling house, and all lands with it." {Westchester Co. 
Land Records, Liber F, p. 315.) In 1730 Daniel Brondage sold the 
mill to Eleazer Yeomans (p. 311). The acreage is not given, but the 
land belonging to the mill extended all around the mill pond, which 
mill pond John Walton had evidently made, and it did include some 
other land about the mill. Eleazer Yeomans and wife Mary, sold the 
mill in 1744, to John Horton. Daniel Brondage deeded the rest of 
his patent to his son Benjamin, in 1730. 

Gilbert 4 Hatfield (son of Thomas 3 Hatfield* and his wife 
Eunice (perhaps Knapp), and brother to Capt. Abraham 4 Hatfield), 
owned 150 acres of land in this Brondage patent, as proved by deed 
from his sons John 5 (and wife Charity), Joseph, and Joshua, to their 
brother Daniel Hatfield, in 1784. {Westchester Co. Land Rec- 
ords, Liber 1351, P- 240.) Gilbert 4 Hatfield was called "cousin" by 
Daniel Knapp, in his will, dated 1744 (see preceding Knapp notes). 
He was probably a nephew (the term was interchangeable) of Daniel 
Knapp's. Gilbert Hatfield's land is mentioned several times as a 
boundary to other lands in the northmost part of White Plains ; the 
first time in 1750, when land in the "fifth or last division" was sold 
by David Ogden, yeoman, of Scarsdale, to Samuel Purdy, Jr., of 
White Plains, yeoman; that is, land adjoining the "line called the 
Indian Line," and bounded on the south by Gilbert Hatfield's land. 
{Rye luind Records, Liber C. p. 26J.) Daniel Hatfield's grand- 
daughter, Mrs. Aaron Hall, states that according to tradition, her 
home, which came to her through her mother, a daughter of Daniel, 
stands on land originally purchased by an ancestor from the 
Indians. It certainly does stand on land belonging to an original 
patentee, who handed it down through several generations, and the 
statement suggests a possible Brondage-Hatfield connection. Gilbert 
I Iatficld had a wife Tamar. 

* Attention is called to the fact that, failing heirs, the estate went to the 
oldest brother of the deceased, or his oldest son, and that if Thomas Hatfield 
had not had children, his estate would have gone to his brother Peter Hatfield. 
Also, that the road to Eastchester, or Scarsdale road, was supposed to run 
north and south near the patent line and that land near it was always 
described as being either on the "east of the road," or "lying on the west of 
the road." This explains why Thomas Hatfield's land was considered as 
lying at the northwest corner of Peter Hatfield's other land, in 1716.

Capt. Joseph 2 Horton, and his sons John 3 Horton, Joseph 3 
Horton, and Benjamin 3 Horton, are all on the list of 1683. There 
is an excellent article on this branch of the Horton family, in volume 
36 of this publication, and the authors have corrected and perfected 
the work of others, mainly with the aid of the land records ; but a 
few more items have come to light, which may help to elucidate 
some of the problems which remained unsolved. Jonathan 3 Horton, 
evidently fourth son to Joseph 2 , had land granted him by the town 
of Rye, in 1694. From Liber A, Rye Records, before its disappear- 
ance. (Bolton's Westchester County History, Vol. 2, p. jjg.) Capt. 
Joseph 2 Horton, the father, was deceased in 1696. Capt. Joseph 2 
Horton's two youngest sons, David 3 and Samuel 3 , lived in White 
Plains, evidently on land granted the father ; and it was probably for 
this reason that John 4 Horton gave these two uncles, David 3 and 
Samuel 3 Horton, brothers to his father, the oldest son and heir to 
Capt. Joseph 2 Horton a quit claim deed to their lands in White Plains. 
John 4 Horton, son of John 3 Horton, the oldest son of Capt. Joseph 3 
Horton (John 3 Horton then deceased) was the lawful heir to his 
grandfather. The Obadiah Horton asked about in the article on the 
Horton family, was in possession, in 1 741, of land belonging to David 3 
Horton, Sr., in 1737 : — land bounding Samuel 3 Horton's on the north, 
(Deed of John 4 Horton, Gent., of Rye, to John Budd, Gent., of Rye, 
1737, Rye Land Records, Liber D, p. 76.) ' Capt. Joseph 2 Horton, 
had probably intended to settle at Newark, N. J., for his name is on a 
list of those who "deserted their lots before the recording of them," 
Feb., 1667. {Newark, N. J., Town Records, p. 9.) 

John 3 Horton, oldest son of Capt. Joseph 2 , was deceased before 
1714. (He was also called Captain.) "Court held at Eastchester, 
May 6, 1714." "Jonathan Horton and Caleb Horton, sons of Capt. 
John Horton, dec'd, appeared to choose their guardians, and made 
choice of their brother John Horton to be their guardian." "Com- 
plaint was made by John Horton of Rye, that James and Phebe 
Horton, children of John Horton, dec'd, hath not due care taken of 
them as they ought to have." . . . "Thereupon the Court orders 
Samuel Purdy & Henry Fowler, Jr., & John Horton to take care 
of them until further orders from this Court." (Westchester Land 
Records, Liber D, p. 40.) 

Joseph 3 Horton, son of Capt. Joseph 2 Horton, was deceased 
before 1717, as proved by the following entry on the Court Records: 
— "General Sessions of the Peace, held at Westchester, June 7, 
1717." "John Horton appeared upon his indictment & referred it 
to the consideration of ye bench, & they having considered the 
affidavit of Polecarpus Nelson before John Drake. Esq., and heard 
the evidence of Daniel Horton & Joseph Horton sons of Joseph 
Horton dec'd, the Court orders he be discharged by proclamation." 
(Westchester County Land Records, Liber D, p. 5/.) Joseph 3 
Horton, deeded one half of his White Plains possessions to his 
son-in-law Roger Park. Roger Park, the Hartford-Rye Patentee, 
was deceased in 1690, therefore the Rye historian is in error regard- 



296 Genealogical Gleanings from Land and Probate Records at [July 

ing this family. Roger Park's widow married Joseph 3 Horton, and 
the Roger Park to whom Joseph 3 Horton gave the White Plains 
land, was his stepson. This is proved by the following entries on the 
Dutch Reformed Church Records (N. Y. Gen. and Bio. Soc. Coll., 
Vol. i): "Roger Parke" and "Sophia Claes" had Marie bapt. Dec. 
26, 1686; wit. Catharina de Riemer and Jan Andries (p. 177). 
"Rodgert Parker" (dec'd) and "Sophia Jans" had "Rodgert" bapt. 
June i, 1690; wit. Joost Palding and Catharina Laurens (p. 197). 
"Joseph Sarton" and "Sophia Claes" had Jonathan and Maria 
(twins), bapt. Sept. 14, 1692; wit. Samuel Ver Plancken, Hillegond 
Jans and Jannetie Hartmans (p. 210). "Joseph Horton" and 
"Sophia Jans" had Jannetje bapt. Nov. 25, 1696; wit. "Thomas 
Robbertszen" (Robinson) "en syn Wyff Hanna" (p. 240). "Joseph 
Harton" and "Sophia Janson" had Margarita bapt. July 22, 1702; 
wit. Dirk Jansen and Maria Meinders s. h. v. (p. 284). "Sophia 
Claes" wife of Rogert Park, was one of Domine Selyns' parishioners 
and was living on the south side of Wall Street, in 1686. (Year 
Book of the Holland Society, 1916, p. 25.) 

Regarding the identity of one Jonathan Pauling Horton, asked 
about, the following may throw some light. Joost Paldinck was 
one of the Hartford-Rye patentees. Joseph 3 Horton of Rye, yeo- 
man, and Sophia his wife, sold to Joost Paldinck of ye City of New 
York, bolter, in 1703, land in Courtlandt Patent. Joost Paldinck 
and wife Catherina sold the same in 1706. Joost Paulding was 
sponsor for Sophia (Claes-Jans) Park-Horton's son, Roger Park. 
Joost (Joseph) Paulding was Clerk for the Phillipsburgh church, 
even while living in New York. He and his wife Catherine had a 
number of children baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church in New 
York, one of them, Marguerite. Joost Paldink, born in Westchester, 
widower of Catherine Duytsch, married Sophia, widow of Theunis 
Kranchleigh, in 1709. (Tarrytown Church Records, pp. 199 and 
I 55) Jonathan Pauling Horton of Phillipsburgh, loaned money on 
a mortgage, for land just over the line from White Plains, to Still 
John Purdy of New Castle, in 1763. Jonathan Pauling Horton of 
Mt. Pleasant, in his will, dated 1793, gave to son Caleb, his land in 
Harrison; to son Jonathan, his land in Mt. Pleasant; to son Joseph, 
his farm in Fishkill ; and mentions daughters Ann, Margaret, Eliza- 
beth and Susan. "The farm where I now live to be sold." (West- 
chester Co. Probate Records, Liber A, p. 277.) 

Benjamin Horton owned the land east of that which Jacob 
Griffin bought in 1723. He was son of Capt. Joseph Horton, and his 
name appears on the 1683 list, spelled "Cinnamon." His name does 
not appear on the 1721 patent list, under any disguise, and as the 
name of his successor is not given as such, it is quite possible that 
he had sold out before the patent was applied for. Benjamin Horton, 
had, however, a lot laid out for him, or in his right, in the fifth 
division. (See note foot of page 292, giving deed.) Joseph Horton 
of White Plains (who also owned Benjamin Horton's other land) 
purchased this piece of land from Benjamin Horton's son Parmenus 






1918.] White Plains and Rye, N,Y. 29 J 

Horton of Long Island in 1730. Benjamin Horton was reported 
"late deceased" in 1730, by his nephew, Joseph Robinson of Rye. 
(Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber G, p. 81.) 

The land owned by Benjamin Horton in 1723, was owned by 
Joseph Horton in 1737 and 1740, and was willed by him to his son 
Joseph, in 1757. (See Westchester County Wills.) The son Joseph 
Horton died in 1763, leaving but one son, Azariah Horton, then 
under age, to whom he left this land. (Westchester County Wills.) 
This Azariah Horton purchased all of Jacob Griffin's land from 
his Executors, and a part of Joshua Hatfield's land, after the death 
of Joshua, in 1803. 

Hannah, sister to Benjamin Horton, and daughter of Capt. 
Joseph Horton, received land from her brother Benjamin, in 1699. 
She was then the widow of Thomas Robinson. In 1730, her son, 
Joseph Robinson, as the oldest son and heir to be, of his mother, 
then Hannah Oakley, sold this land to his stepfather, Miles Oakley 
of Westchester. Joseph Robinson's uncle, Benjamin Horton, was 
at this time reported by him as being "late deceased." (Westchester 
County Land Records, Liber G, p. 81.) 

George Kniffen testified that he was aged about 50 years, and 
his wife Mary testified that she was aged about 38 years, Nov. 6, 
1682. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber C, p. 228.) Mary, 
widow of George Kniffing, dec'd, was granted letters of Administra- 
tion in 1694. (Liber B, p. 196.) The George Kniffen who sold 
land not yet divided, to Abraham Smith, in 1705, and who sold all 
his lands, divided and undivided, to Humphrey Underhill, in 1714, 
was son and heir to this first patentee. There were none of this 
name on the list of 1721. James Kniffen of Phillipsburgh, bought 
land in 1743. William Sniffen, born in Rye, was married in Phillips- 
burgh, to Maritie Janssen, born in Westchester; both living in 
Phillipsburgh, June 9, 1733. (Tarrytown Church Records, p. 160.) 
William Kniffen and Mary his wife, sold land in Westchester, in 
1738, to John and Isaac Oakley. John and Isaac Oakley sold this 
land to Nathaniel Underhill. (Westchester Co. Land Records, 
Liber G, p. 269.) Israel Sniffen, or Kniffen, was living in White 
Plains, just over the line from Phillipsburgh, when the road in the 
northern part of the town leading over the Bronx river was laid 
out. (Road Book.) This Israel Sniffen is spoken of by the Rye 
historian, as being "of Phillipsburgh." 

Peter Disbrow and his son Henry Disbrow, both had land 
in the second draft of White Plains. Peter Disbrow sold out 
entirely, and land once laid out to him, was sold by Peter Hatfield 
to his brother Thomas, in 1716. In 1714, Peter Brown, Sr., of Rye 
deeded to his son-in-law, Francis Purdy, Jr. ("June"), of Rye, and 
daughter, Sarah Purdy, his wife, "land I had of my honoured father- 
in-law, Peter Disbrow, deceased ;" "only reserving for my wife 
Rebecca her thirds." This land was in Rye. ( Westchester Co. Land 
Records, Liber E, p. 75.) 



298 Genealogical Gleanings from Land and Probate Records at [July 

Henry Disbrow settled in Mamaroneck. He seems to have 
disposed of all of his White Plains land in the earlier divisions, but 
had a lot laid out to him in the fifth division. (This shows that he 
sold his land after the fourth division was laid out.) He had sons 
Henry, John and Benjamin, to whom he deeded land in Mamaroneck 
at various times. 

Freegrace Adams and wife Mary, sold to Thomas Baxter and 
wife Abigail (who sold to Caleb Horton, in 1723), all right and 
title to lands which "we have, or ought to have, by virtue of an assign, 
ment from Henry Disbrow, in 1712." {Westchester Co. Land Rec- 
ords, Liber F, p. 178.) Henry Disbrow and wife Elizabeth, gave to 
son-in-law Gerardus Drake, and daughter Elizabeth, land in Mama- 
roneck, in 1727. Gerardus Drake, evidently their son, owned land 
in the fifth division of White Plains, which he had purchased from 
Anthony Miller and Titus Travis. Gerardus Drake, born at Mama- 
roneck, aged 29 years, in 1758; served in Capt. Abraham Hatfield's 
Company. Westchester Co. Militia. {Report of the State Historian, 
N. Y '., Vol. 1, p. 889.) Henry Disbrow, Jr., and wife Margaret, * 
sold land to son Henry, in 1688. John Disbrow and wife Hannah, 
sold all land in White Plains, divided and undivided, to Hope Car- 
penter, Sr., and Hope Carpenter, Jr., of Jamaica, L. I., in 1708. 
{Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber D, part 2, p. 19.) Hope 
Carpenter and Elizabeth his wife, of White Plains, sold same to 
Samuel Mills of Jamaica, in 1715. Mary Disbrow, daughter of Edward 
Griffin, obligated herself and her son, Griffin Disbrow, to pay the 
debt of Edward Griffin in 1734. {Westchester Co. Land Records, 
Liber G, p. 272.) "Mary Disbrow of Amboy, N. J., widow, and only 
daughter of Henry Griffin, and heir-at-law to her brother, Henry 
Griffin, the Younger, late of Westchester, dec'd, 1737." Her son, 
Griffin Disbrow, was then living in Westchester. {Westchester 
Town Records, Vol. 6, p. 29.) Inscriptions from "Disbrow Burying 
Ground," near Matawan, Monmouth Co., N. J.. : — " Susanna, wife 
of John Disbrow, died Feb. 5, 1739, age 28 and her child, aged 5

Garratt Travis, the only one of this name mentioned on the 
early list, stated, in 1708, that he and wife Katherine, now deceased, 
had given all their land to son James in 1705, both being aged and 
needing care. {Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber E, p. 96.) 
James Travis, Sr., of White Plains, gave to son John, in 1730, all 
right, title and interest in lands in White Plains, divided and un- 
divided. Garratt Travis had a son Philip. ("Philip, oldest son of 
('.arret Travis," 1707/8. Liber E, p. q6.) Robert Travis of Rye, 
bought land in White Plains, in 1718, from Joseph Budd. "Robert 
Travis, son of Philip," and James and John, the sons of James 
Travis; also a Thomas Travis, applied for the Royal Patent in 1721, 
and all but Thomas were living in White Plains. There is a state-

ment in the Stamford History, p. 60, that "Garret Rivis" bought 
land there in 1657, and that he was called a Dutchman, "Gerrit 
Trevers" was sued for board, in New York, in 1666. {Records of 
Nezu Amsterdam, Vol. VI, p. 13.) 

Philip Galpin and his sons John and Joseph Galpin, had land 
in the second division. Philip Galpin was deceased in 1684. "Philip 
Galpin of Bristol, Somerset Co., Eng., Mariner, son of John Galpin 
of Rye." ''John Galpin, with free consent of his wife Mary, sold 
land to Nicholas Hopping of Rye, Mariner, in 1697/8." "Philip 
Galpin came into possession of part of above land, by deed of gift 
from John Morgan of Rye, in 1670, and quit-claimed same to 
Nicholas Hopping, in 1700." (Early Conn. Probate Records, Vol. 
1, P- 554-) 

John Galpin sold his 2 acre house lot, to Daniel Brondage, in 
1698. John Galpin received the legacy of his brother Samuel Galpin, 
according to the will of the court. (Back page of Liber B, Rye 
Land Records.) John Galpin, Sr., of Rye, and wife Mary, deeded 
land in Rye, to son-in-law, James Murre and daughter Susanna 
Murre, in 1703. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber C, p. 310.) 
John Galpin deceased in 1706. Widow Mary, and daughters Mary, 
Ruth and Susanna, mentioned (p. 319). Mary Galpin, Widow and 
Relict of John Galpin, deceased, sold land in White Plains to John 
Hawkins, of Rye, in 1710. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber 
E, p. 1 4 j.) John Galpin's daughter Esther, and her husband, John 
Booth, sold White Plains land in 1721. 

Joseph Galpin, son of Philip, was born in New Haven, June 
17, 1652. (Nezv Haven Vital Records, Vol. 1, p. 17.) Joseph 
Galpin, bachelor, sold to Daniel Brondage, land formerly his father's, 
Philip Galpin's dee'd, in 1715. 

William Odell of Rye, Planter, sold to his oldest son, John 
Odell, one half of his house lot and one half of his undivided lands 
in Rye, which then included White Plains, in 1693. (Westchester Co. 
Land Records, Liber B, p. 168.) This son never had any early 
interest in White Plains. Land of William Odell, deceased, was 
sold by his son Samuel Odell, to Abraham Smith, in 1700. Samuel 
and Patience Odell sold their home lot and house to Daniel Bron- 
dage, in 1697. 

Isaac Odell, son of William, received land in the second division. 
In 1705, Isaac and Anna Odell of Eastchester, sold out to Humphrey 
Underhill. 

John Hoyt, of Rye, was deceased in 1684. (See Hoit, Hyatt 
' Genealogy.) John Hoit bought the piece of land around the meet- 
ing house in 1729, but soon sold it. 

Samuel Hoit, son of John, was living in White Plains when the 
patent was applied for, in 1721. 

Caleb Hyatt's descendants, many of them, remained in White 
Plains. (See Hoit, Hyatt Genealogy.)

Thomas Brown had a lot laid out to him in the first division, 
directly in the curve of the road to Rye. (Road Book.) His name 
is also on the list of those who received land in the second division. 
He was brother to Hachaliah Brown, who undoubtedly succeeded 
to his land, as he (Thomas Brown) died without issue. It is stated 
by the Rye historian, that the lands of Thomas and Hachaliah 
Brown, adjoining one another in Rye, remained for years undivided. 
This is probably the reason. 

Hachaliah Brown testified that he was aged 70 years, March 
25, 1715. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber E, p. 91.) Peter 
Brown, Sr., was a son of Hachaliah Brown, and son-in-law to 
Peter Disbrow; and his daughter Sarah married Francis Purdy, Jr. 
Deliverance Brown, another son of Hachaliah's, had also a share 
in the second division. This Brown family sold out to Abraham 
Underhill, grandson of Capt. John Underhill, so famous as a 
warrior. 

Francis Brown was not related to the other family of this name. 
He married as his second wife, Judette (Budd), widow of John 
Ogden. He gave his land in White Plains to his step-son, Richard 
Ogden, in 1700, and Richard Ogden sold to Caleb Hyatt. 

Jacob Pierce was deceased in 1694, and his land passed to his 
oldest brother, Daniel Pierce of Watertown, Mass. 

John Frost was the first owner of the land where the Presby- 
terian meeting house stands. He sold this to the Rev. Christopher 
Bridge of Rye, Clerk, in 17 14, together with all his right to undivided 
lands. 

Stephen and Isaac Sherwood sold out; Stephen Sherwood of 
Rye, to Francis Le Conte of New Rochelle, one half his interest in 
White Plains, divided and undivided, in 171 1. 

Richard Lounsberry was deceased in 1694. He left his White 
Plains land to his sons Thomas and Michael. Michael sold out. 
There was a William Lounsberry living north of Dr. Graham, who 
had occupied his land many years. John Lounsberry and wife Ann 
of Rye, gave land to their loving brother-in-law Israel Rogers and 
Mary his wife, in 1703/4. (Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber C, 
p. 320.) In the will of Richard Lounsberry, 1690-1694, recorded on 
the Land Records at White Plains, he mentions a daughter Mary. In 
the published Westchester County Wills, there is no mention of this 
daughter. 

Jonathan Vowles is written Jonathan "Fowler" on the second 
draft list. He sold out to John Turner, one of the patentees under 
the Hartford grant. 

George Lane, Sr., of Rye, had wife Mercy, and they were living 
in 1709. Mercy Lane witnessed a deed of sale for land sold in 
Westchester, in 1700, by Wareham Mather, Student of Divinity in 
Westchester, to Jacob Johnson, Shoemaker, of New Rochelle, late of 
Middletown, Conn. George Lane, Jr., settled in White Plains. He 
served in the Indian Wars, and for that reason styled himself 



1918.] White Plains and Rye, N. Y. 30I 

"Gentleman." He kept his homelot, apparently given him by his 
father, and probably lived upon it until he went to West Farms, 
where he died, in 1745/6, leaving the homelot, and land which he 
had purchased within the Brondage patent, to his only son, Nathan. 
(See Westchester County Wills.) He was, therefore, not the father 
of any of the other children given him in the Rye History, but 
undoubtedly a brother and uncle to them. The land which George 
Lane, Jr., purchased from William Yeomans and his wife Elizabeth, 
and from Caleb Horton and from Joseph Fowler, — in the third and 
fourth divisions; and land which he undoubtedly received from his 
father, he sold to Joshua Hatfield, son of Peter, in 1743. This piece 
contained ioo]/ 2 acres. Nathan, son of George Lane, Jr., moved to 
Cortlandt. Daniel Lane applied with George Lane and the others 
for the patent in 172 1. He was also a son of George Lane of Rye, 
but lived in White Plains, where he seems to have owned a very 
small piece of land on the highway, south of Abraham Smith's land, 
in 1700; and this land was owned by Jonathan Lane in 1726, and 
until after 1730. Jonathan Lane probably sold this land when he 
sold his land north of Gabriel Lynch's, in 1746, and probably left 
town. He was a mason, and had a wife, Rebecca. (Westchester 
Co. Land Records, Liber O, p. 98.) Joseph Lane, afterward of 
Cortlandt, witnessed a deed of sale from Abraham Smith, nephew 
to George Lane, to John Walton, at White Plains, in 1726. 

John Merritt was represented in White Plains by his sons, 
John and Andrew Merritt. In 1727, Jacob Hays, of New York, 
Merchant, sold to Daniel Horton of Rye, "land laid out in the right 
of John Merritt, Sr., dec'd, late of Rye, in ye third and fourth 
divisions of ye White Plains Purchase ;" 40 acres. Jacob Hays also 
bought the homelot laid out to John Merritt, which had come into 
the possession of his sons John and Andrew Merritt, and sold the 
same to Daniel Horton. (Westchester Land Records, Liber F, p. 
85.) (See Revised Merritt Records, by Douglas Merritt.) Hum- 
phrey Underbill's daughter Elizabeth, married Samuel Merritt not 
Thomas, as started in the preceding Underhill notes. 

Timothy Knapp's houselot, from the descriptions of land about 
it, seems to have been taken into what was later either the Samuel 
Hunt, or the Christopher Bridge patent, down on the road to Rye. 
It was in his possession from 1700 to 1710, as proved by the sales 
of a piece of land between it and land "formerly Jacob Pierce's." 
Jacob Pierce was deceased without heirs, and his land went to his 
brother, Daniel Pierce of Watertown, Mass. Daniel Pierce according 
to the various authorities, in some way gave the lands of his brother 
to the Rev. Christopher Bridge, who was also from New England, 
and who, at the time of his death, owned a patent of twenty scattered 
pieces of land within the Rye possessions. One of these pieces of 
land was north of Thomas Hunt's patent, when the patent to White 
Plains was applied for, in 1721. Probably Timothy Knapp sold 
his homelot, or gave it to his son Moses who sold ; for Moses Knapp 
had a tract of land laid out to him in White Plains, in 1720. As this 



302 Genealogical Gleanings from Land and Probate Records [July 

Moses Knapp is the only one not placed by competent genealogists ; 
and as Timothy Knapp's land in Rye is proven to have been inherited 
by his son Timothy Knapp; and as these same genealogists state 
that Timothy Knapp probably had other sons; therefore, it seems 
almost safe to conclude that Moses was son to Timothy Knapp. 
(See preceding Knapp notes.) 

Joseph Purdy and Francis Purdy, brothers, had land in the 
second division. Joseph Purdy, Sr., of Rye, willed to son Joseph, 
in 1703, "all right of lands in White Plains on the west side of the 
Mamaroneck river." Obadiah Purdy, son and heir to Joseph the 
younger, dec'd, was living in White Plains in 1726. (See deed from 
Abraham Smith to John Walton. See preceding Smith notes.) 
Samuel Purdy of Rye, bought from John Budd, the land John Budd 
bought from John Horton. John Horton had inherited this land 
from his uncle, Samuel Horton. (See preceding Horton notes.) 
Jonathan Purdy, son of Joseph, bought up from several of the 
patentees' successors, a large tract of land in the lower part of the 
patent, and some of this land is still owned by his descendants. Still 
John Purdy, son of Joseph, owned a tract of land in the fifth division 
near the North Castle line, and sold the same to Samuel Purdy in 
1740; "land laid out to the right of Jacob Pierce." Still John Purdy 
also sold to Samuel Purdy, Jr., in 1735, land which he owned in the 
Great Meadow. A deed from "Obadiah Purdy, of Rye, Gent., son 
and heir at law to Joseph Purdy the younger, dec'd," to Samuel 
Purdy of Rye, Esq., in 1734, gives the sons of Joseph Purdy the 
elder, of Rye, Esq., dec'd, as Joseph the younger, dec'd, Daniel, 
David, Samuel, Jonathan, Still John and Francis. (Westchester 
Co. Land Records, Liber G, p. 113.) 

Francis Purdy bought and sold land in White Plains. There 
is an excellent genealogy of this entire Purdy family, in the History 
of Greenwich, Conn., but there seems to be some misunderstanding 
regarding the marriage of Peter Brown's daughter who married 
Francis Purdy, Jr., and not Francis Purdy, son of Francis who died 
in 1658 at Fairfield. Francis Purdy of Rye deposed that he was 
aged 64 years or thereabouts, March 25, 1715. (Westchester Co. 
Land Records, Liber E, p. 91.) Peter Brown, Sr., of Rye, in 1714. 
deeded to son-in-law Francis Purdy, Jr., and daughter Sarah Purdy 
his wife, "land I had of my honoured father-in-law, Peter Disbrow, 
dec'd." This was land in Rye. (Westchester Co. Land Records. 
Liber E, p. 73.) Francis Purdy, Jr., of Rye, bought land of Daniel 
Brondage, in White Plains, in 1698. (Rye Land Records, Liber B. 
p. 72.) 

The Samuel Purdy who was prominent in Rye town affairs, was 
undoubtedly the youngest son of Francis 1 Purdy who died before 
the family settled in Rye. This is proved by his signature to a 
petition in 1710, to the Hartford Court, regarding the Stephen Sher- 
wood claim. Those who signed were Isaac Dunham, John Brondig. 
Thomas Mcrritt, Joseph Budd, Wid. Purdy, relict of justice Purdy, 
dec'd, Caleb Hiatt, Widow Horton, relict of Tohn Horton, dec'd.

John Stoakham sold to James Travis, Jr., of Rye, in 1705. 4 A., 

evidently his homelot. 

Isaac Den ham, Andrew Coe and Thomas Jaffrey sold out. 
Richard Walton, not "Walters," as given on the 1683 list, 
was son-in-law to Philip Galpin. 

Joseph Budd, Capt., died in 1722, between the time of the applica- 
tion for the patent, and its receipt. He married Ann, daughter of 
Humphrey Underhill. Joseph Budd's two sons, Joseph and Elisha, 
inherited his rights in the White Plains patent, and his son, Underhill 
Budd, inherited the rights of his grandfather, Humphrey Underhill. 
{Westchester Co. Land Records, Liber G, p. 393.) Underhill Budd, 
married Sarah, daughter of Capt. Henry Fowler (the third Henry 
Fowler, son of Henry Fowler, Sr., of Eastchester) of Mamaroneck. 
In 1738, Underhill Budd of White Plains, exchanged with Henry 
Fowler (the 4th), his brother-in-law, of Mamaroneck, his 120 acres 
of land in White Plains, for Henry Fowler's land in Mamaroneck.

CORRECTIONS AND ADDITIONS TO PUBLISHED 
GENEALOGICAL WORKS. 



Every gleaner in the field of genealogical research has met with errors in 
printed volumes which, left by themselves, carry mistaken conclusions to the 
end of time. This department has been inaugurated in an endeavor to correct 
such spurious data. Readers are requested to forward for publication here 
every such error, and such further additions to printed genealogies as are 
found, that due correction may be made. The authority for the statement 
must be furnished, with name and address of contributor. 



67. Pettingell-Poore — Correction. 

Page 8 of the Pettingell Genealogy (a very creditable work of 582 
pages, thoroughly indexed, compiled by John Mason Pettingell. 
After his death his notes were edited and compared by his 
brother Charles Ireland Pettingell and arranged for publication 
by Charles Henry Pope, Boston, Mass., 1906), states that " Samuel 2 
(Richard 1 ) Pettingell, born Salem, Mass., bap. 9 (12), 1644; mar- 
ried 13 Feb., 1673-4, Sarah, 2 dau. of John 1 Poore of Newbury, 
Mass., she being the second child of the name and was born in 
Newbury, 5 June, 1655." This Sarah 2 Poore did not marry Samuel 2 
Pettingell, but married at Newbury, Mass., Feb. 18, 1675, John 2 
(William 1 ) Sawyer. (Published Vital Records of Newbury, p. 409, 
and Hoyt's Old Families of Salisbury and Amesbury, Mass., vol.2, 
p. 591.) John 2 Sawyer was born Newbury, Mass., Aug. 24, 1645, 
and died in Salem, Mass., March, 1688-9. Sarah (Poore) Sawyer 
married second (or intentions published) Nov. 27, 1707, Joseph 3 
(John, 2 John 1 ) Bailey, Sen., as his second wife. (Old Families of 
Salisbury and Amesbury, by David W. Hoyt, vol. 1, p. 45, and 
vol. 2, p. 613).

The Sarah 2 Poore who married Samuel' 2 Pettingell at Newbury, 
Mass., Feb. 13, 1673 (published Newbury Vital Records), was the 

daughter of Daniel and M (faded) Pore of Andover, Mass. 

(published Vital Records of Andover, Mass., p. 311). The M 

is no doubt the first letter in Mary, as Daniel Pore married at 
Boston, Mass., Oct. 20, 1650, Mary Farnum, daughter of Ralph 
and Alice Farnum (published Vital Records of Andover, Mass., 
p. 278). Mary (Farnum) Poor (or Pore), widow of Daniel, died in 
Andover, Mass., Feb. 3, 1713-4, age given about 85 (published 
Vital Records of Andover, Mass., p. 529). 

Samuel 2 Pettingell died in 171 1, presumably at Newbury, Mass.; 
in his will dated July 9, 1709, proved Jan. 2, 1711, he bequeathed 
to wife Sarah, and children Samuel, Richard, Daniel, John, 
Thomas, Mary, Sarah, Joanna and Benjamin. The date and place 
of Sarah (Pore) Pettingell is unknown to writer, but she was 
recorded as member of the church in 1716.

3 I O Department for Registration of Pedigrees. [July 

Bepartment for Registration of ^efcigrees- 



Conducted by JOHN REYNOLDS TOTTEN. 



THE NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY 
conducts a department for the purpose of examining, approving and 
publishing pedigrees of individual applicants. 

The Society will accept for examination the pedigree of ANY INDI- 
VIDUAL, whether a member of the Society or not. 

Those desiring to take advantage of the facilities thus offered should apply 
to the Society for the authorized blank form on which to record the pedigree to 
be submitted for examination (enclosing 50 cents in payment for the blank). 

Applicants must either themselves, or with the assistance of professional 
genealogists, fill in the form as indicated and return the same to this Society for 
examination; it being understood that the regular charges made by this Society 
are for examination and publication of the pedigree, and do not include genea- 
logical research in the preparation of the pedigree itself. 

When a pedigree is submitted for examination the applicant must send with 
it a preliminary fee of $15.00. Upon the receipt of a pedigree and this preliminary 
fee, the pedigree will be examined ; and if approved, it will be subsequently pub- 
lished, first in an issue of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record, and the applicant will receive 2 copies of the Record containing the pedi- 
gree without further charge. The pedigree will thereafter (when a sufficient 
number have accumulated) be published in a volume of a series, one volume 
of which has already been issued (see Vol. VI, New York Genealogical and Bio- 
graphical Society's Collections) ; and copies of this volume will be sold to those 
whose pedigrees are contained therein at the special price of $5.00 a volume. . 

Pedigrees must be submitted to the Society in form complete for publication. 
If, upon examination by the Society, essential facts are added to the pedigree by 
the examiner, a nominal fee, not to exceed $5.00, will be charged by the Society 
for ascertaining and embodying such additional information in the pedigree. 

If upon examination the pedigree is found to be essentially inaccurate, it will 
not be approved and will be returned to the applicant ; and the preliminary fee will 
be refunded, less a charge of $10.00 for expert examination. 

If, when finally examined, approved and prepared for publication, the pedi- 
gree is found to require more than one page for its proper presentation, the fee 
for publishing the same, as above explained, will be at the rate of $15.00 a page 
(pages to be similar in size and form to those of pedigrees heretofore published in 
the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, — see issues from 
April, 191 1, to date of this issue), but, in adjusting the final charge, credit for the 
payment of the preliminary fee of $15.00 will be given to the applicant. . 

For the benefit of applicants desiring extra copies of their pedigrees for 
family distribution, editions of 50 copies of such pedigrees will be supplied on 
4-page folders of linen ledger paper, with space left for additional notes, for 
a fee of $5.00. 

Individuals desiring their pedigrees prepared for examination, approval 
and later publication by this Society, and who are unfamiliar with the methods 
to pursue to secure the necessary information to establish such pedigrees, or 
who are unable to devote the required time to their preparation, — are invited 
to address this Society with a view to being put in communication with a 
professional genealogist capable of establishing and submitting them (when 
established) in proper form to this Society for publication. 

Applications for examination, approval and publishing pedigrees under the 
condition hereabove set forth should be made to the 

NEW YORK GENEALOGICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY, 
226 West 58TH Street, New York City.

this marriage exists), to Priscilla Mullins,* a passenger on the first voyage of the Mayflower, 

(dau. of William Mullins,* a passenger on the first voyage of the Mayflower (b at , 

Eng. (most probably); d. March 3, 1621, at Plymouth, Mass.) and his wife Alice* (whose

Res. John Alden was not associated with the Pilgrims at Leyden. He was hired at Southampton, England, as a "cooper" to 
accompany the Pilgrims on the first voyage of the Mayflower, the privilege being granted him to either remain in 
New England or to return to England as he elected to do. He was the seventh (7th) signer of tee " Mayflower Com- 
pact " which was drawn up and signed on board the Mayflower, Nov. 11 (O. S.) or 21 (N. S.), 1620. He settled in 
Plymouth, Mass., where he married his wife (probably as early as 1623, as she was left an orphan early in 1621), and 
where he remained until 1631 when he removed to Duxbury, Mass., where he lived until his death. He was the last 
male survivor of the signers of the " Compact." He died intestate and his inventory was taken October 31, 1687, by 
his son Lieut. Jonathan Alden, who was also appointed administrator of his estate, Nov. 8. 1687; and his heirs gave re- 
ceipt for their portions June 13, 1688. He was a Representative to the General Court from Duxbury in 1641-2, and was 
an Assistant to Governor Winslow in 1633 and served as an Assistant for 42 years.

in 1659 (which would place his year of birth as 1638 on the supposition that he was made a freeman at age of 21). He

EDITORIAL. 



On Sunday, April 14th, the property of Henry D. Lasher, adjacent to the 
Stone Arabia Reformed Church, was destroyed by fire. As the church records 
had been kept in Mr. Lasher's home for the past thirty-five years it was 
erroneously concluded that they had been destroyed with the house. And 
such a statement appeared in press notices. This Society made a copy of the 
Stone Arabia Reformed Church Records in the summer of 1916, at which time 
it was suggested that better steps be taken towards their preservation from 
fire. The following letter has been received from the pastor of the church: — 

" Ephratah, N. Y., 4/20/18. 
Mr. R. W. Vosburgh, 

New York, N. Y. 
Dear Sir: — 

We purchased a second hand combination iron safe last November and 
placed the Old and New Records all in it together. This safe stands in the 
church. It just happened to be a very providential move. 

Yours as ever, 

(Signed) Royal A. Stanton." 

The pastor also states that the combination of the safe is known to only 
two or three people and that all the historical documents belonging to the 
church are carefully preserved therein. A complete list of all these documents, 
compiled by the writer, will be found in Volume III of the Society's copy of 
the church records, pages 169-170. r. w. v.

BOOK REVIEWS. 
By John R. Totten. 

Editorial Note:— The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society solicits as 
donations to its Library all newly published works on Genealogy. History and Biography, as well 
as all works on Town, County and State History, or works embodying information regarding the 
Vital Records of any and all localities. It also solicits the donation to the manuscript collections 
of its library any and all manuscript compilations which bear upon the above mentioned topics. 

In consideration of such donations the works so presented to the Society will be at once 
placed upon the shelves of its library and will be reviewed in the next subsequent issue of The 
New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, each donation of such character, 
whether in printed or manuscript form, will be reviewed under the head of " Book Notices " and 
a copy of The Record containing the review will be sent to the donor. 

The Society does not solicit donations of publications or manuscripts on topics foreign to 
the above mentioned subjects, as its library is specialized and cannot accommodate material 
which does not bear directly upon its recognized sphere of usefulness. 

Donations for review in the January issue of The Record should be delivered to the 
Society before December ist of the previous year; for the April issue, before March ist; for the 
July issue before June ist; and for the October issue, before September ist. 

All donations will be generously reviewed with a view of calling the attention of the public 
to their good points; but, while generous, the reviews will contain such proper criticism as the 
interest of the genealogical student would expect from the editorial staff of The Record. 

The "Book Notices" of The Record are carefully read by all librarians as well as 
genealogical students, and the review of a work in The Record is equivalent to a special 
advertisement of such work. 

Letters of transmittal of donations of such works should embody the price of the work 
donated and the name and address of the person from whom it can be purchased. 



The Ancestors and Descendants of Humphrey Nichols of Newark, 
New Jersey, and of his Brothers and Sisters, by Frederic C. Torrey, A.M., 
genealogist and historian of the Torrey Families and their children in Amer- 
ica. Quarto, cloth, pages about ioo. including charts and numerous portrait 
plates. Lakehurst, N. J. 1^17. Price, Sj.oo. Address: Frederic C. Torrey, 
Lakehurst, N. J. 

A most excellent presentation of the antecedents and descendants of 
Humphrey Nichols with a supplement giving special information of interest 
to the descendants of Isaac Nichols, son of Humphrey of Newark, N. J. The 
work throws much light on the emigration of this family from Stratford, 
Conn., to New Jersey. Recommended to all genealogical libraries. 

The Life of Lieutenant General Adna Romanza Chaffee, U. S. 
Army, by Major General William Harding Carter, U. S. Army. Royal, 8vo, 
cloth, pp. vii-i-296, including some 16 photogravure portrait and other plates 
of descriptive interest. The University Press, Chicago, 111. 1917. Price, 
$2.50, postage extra. Address : Publishers. 

A biography of one of America's great soldiers — the only man who ever 
rose from the rank of private in the Regular Army to that of Chief of Staff 
of the United States Army. 

This is an interesting biography tracing the career of General Chaffee and 
describing the different military events in which he took part. It covers a 
period of over fifty years of our history: the military events of the Civil 
War, conditions on the Western frontier, Indian engagements, problems of 
upbuilding the Army, the war with Spain, and the relief expedition to 
China. The entire story is told in a direct incisive style.

Mass. 8vo, cloth, pp. ig8, with some 33 portrait illustrations of family inter- 
est. Price, $2.10. Address : Miss Adeline C. Young, North Pembroke, Mass. 

This excellent work was arranged for publication largely by Charles 
Hatch who, dying on April 4th, IQ15. did not see it in its finished form. His 
unfinished task was carried to completion by his cousin, Miss Adeline Colla- 
more Young, of North Pembroke, Mass. Recommended to all genealogical 
libraries. 

The Story of Cooperstown, by Ralph Birdsall, Rector of Christ Church, 
Cooperstown, N. Y. 8vo, cloth, pp. 424, including some 70 illustrations from 
photographs. Copyrighted, IQ17, by the author. Price. $1.50 net. Address : 
M. F. Augur, Cooperstown, N. Y. 

A most interesting and comprehensive sketch of this beautiful New 
York town, the home of Fenimore Cooper, and a locality rendered familiar to 
all who in childhood's time have read the Leather Stocking Series. Recom- 
mended to all general reference and historical libraries. 

James Monroe Buckley, by George Preston Mains. 8vo, cloth, pp. 305, 
including index, with two portrait plates of Dr. Buckley. Price. $1.50.

nue, New York City. 

For fifty years James Monroe Buckley has been the outstanding man 
in Methodism and for at least thirty years has been the acknowledged leader 
in its councils. 

Dr. Mains has sketched the sources and secrets of his power sympa- 
thetically and surely, and has given graphic and picturesque portrayal of the 
life and activities of this leader of Modern Methodism. 

While the biographer has written con amore he has maintained the judi- 
cial attitude. The book is a real study and interpretation of this many-sided 
and truly remarkable man. 

Rogers' Rock, Lake George, March 13, 1758. A Battle Fought on Snow 
Shoes, by Mary Cochrane Rogers, great-great-granddaughter of Major Rob-

quate sketch of the life of Major Robert Rogers." Recommended to all his- 
torical libraries. 

Maternal Ancestry of Frank Trumbull, and of his brothers Robert 
Morris Wilton and Charles Julius Trumbull and of his sister Mary Trum-

1918.J Book Reviews. ^\~] 

This little pamphlet sets forth in concise and interesting form the record 
of the maternal blood lines of Frank Trumbull and will be an acquisition to 
any genealogical library.

account of the migration of the Thomas and Johnson families and others to 
Missouri. Quarto, paper, 1917, and revised in 1918. Address : Frank Trum-

plement to the "Maternal Ancestry of Frank Trumbull," which we have 
just mentioned above. Recommended to all genealogical libraries. 

Old Roads Out of Philadelphia, 8vo, cloth and boards, pp. 327, 1917, 
profusely illustrated with 117 half tones with maps and index, by John T. 
Faris, member City History Society of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania 
Historical Society and author of "Real Stories from Our History," etc. 
Price, $4.00 net. Address : J. B. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia, Pa. 

Radiating from Philadelphia, in all directions, are well surfaced roads, 
replete with associations such as are found in no city of its size in the country. 
In historic interest no less than in fascinating enjoyment may pleasing adven- 
ture be attained in traversing the routes laid down in this work. A run of 
thirty to thirty-five miles will include the most historic portion of any of them. 
Trips by auto and by trolley will well repay the wanderer. This work supplies 
information which can be obtained in a condensed form in no other way and 
is recommended to everybody, for who is not interested in our country's 
early history? H. S. M. 

Marriage Records of Hunterdon County, N. J. (1795-1875), Vol. I, 
being an Index to the marriages recorded in the office of the County Clerk, 
at Flemington, N. J., compiled by Hiram E. Deats, Recording Secretary and 
Librarian of the Hunterdon County Historical Society; 8vo, buckram, 1918, 
PP- 337- Price, $5.00 Apply to the compiler as above. 

A very important addition to genealogical lore, one which it is hoped 
will be followed by the other counties of the State. When the fact is fully 
realized by the officials in charge that Hunterdon County bears the distinc- 
tion of being the only one of the twenty-one counties which has undertaken 
this work it cannot be doubted that others, envious of this record, will 
hurry to attain an early place in the contest which should begin at once. Mr. 
Deats is to be congratulated on the success of this initial contribution and the 
second volume will be anxiously awaited. H. S. M. 

A History and Genealogy of the Descendants of John Jepson of 
England and Boston, Mass., through his son John's two sons, William and 
Micah, 1610-1917. Octavo, buckram, pp. 106, index, illustrated with fifteen 
half-tone pages and several small half tones and zinc etchings; price, S3. 50. 
Address the author, Norton W. Jipson. M.D., 4310 Indiana Avenue, Chicago, 
111. 

A work which shows much thought and care in preparation, is well 
printed and agreeable to handle. Attention is called to the introduction which 
adds general interest in that it supplies so much historic data concerning the 
early homes of the family, and much information relative to others of the 
name besides the one whose line is traced. The fortunes of the descendants 
of William of Boston, including Samuel, John, Lemuel C. (Jesse), Benjamin 
and of Micah of Goshen, Mass., including John, Joseph, David and Samuel 
are followed in extenso. At this writing the entire edition of the work has 
been absorbed with the exception of about thirty copies. H. S. M. 

History of the Galley Family with Local and Old-Time Sketches in 
the Yough Region, by Henrietta Galley and J. O. Arnold, M.D. Octavo, 
cloth, and boards, pp. 271. 1Q08. Illustrated with numerous photographs.

Edition limited to 350 copies. No price stated. Address : Dr. Arnold. 
4149 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, Pa. 

This book is divided into three parts, the first covering the family his- 
tory, culminating with particulars of the first reunion held in 1897 and the 
second ten years later. Beginning with its progenitor in this country, Peter 
Galley, who settled in Lancaster County, Pa., about 1770, his descendants are 
brought down to the present time. Miss Henrietta Galley was the author of 
this section of the work and worthily has she performed her task. The text 
has been well illustrated, including half-tones of some of the homesteads in 
picturesque settings which any family could view with pardonable pride. 
With this part of the work this society is especially interested, and while our 
field is limited to that line of research it is a pleasure to note the remain- 
ing segments to which the book is devoted. Part second is entitled "Historic 
Sketches in the Yough Region" and contains much authentic history dished 
up in an entertaining and spritely manner. The final part, "Old-Time 
Sketches," has preserved for the future many useful and intimate traits of 
the life and times and activities which have characterized the region of the 
Youghiogheny valley, and, although not usually placed in a family history. 
Dr. Arnold has wrought well in assembling such a comprehensive resume of 
historic and old-time data. As time recedes these will become increasingly 
valuable. H. S. M.

ISAAC NEWTON SELIGMAN, 



By Hopper Striker Mott. 



Isaac N. Seligman was born in Staten Island, July 10th, 1855, 
a son of Joseph Seligman, founder of the international banking 
house, who came to this country in 1853 and who, with his six 
brothers, established the firm of J. & W. Seligman & Company. 
As a boy Isaac N. Seligman was for many years under the im- 
mediate guidance of his tutor, Horatio Alger, Jr., the famous 
juvenile writer. He entered Columbia Grammar School at the 
age of ten, and in 1872 matriculated at Columbia College, graduat- 
ing with honors four years later. He rowed in the crew which in 
1874 defeated Harvard, Yale, and nine other college crews on 
Saratoga Lake. For a long period after graduation he was 
president of the Columbia Boat Club. 

His business training began in the New Orleans branch of the 
banking firm where his unusual ability was developed. He was trans- 
ferred to the New York office in 1878 and was at once recognized 
as a prominent figure in New York banking circles. His father 
died in 1880, being succeeded as head of the firm by his brother, 
the late Jesse Seligman. At the death of the latter, in 1895, Mr. 
Isaac N. Seligman became the head of the house. 

As financial agents of the United States Navy Department, 
Mr. Seligman's firm had many connections throughout the world. 
He traveled repeatedly to foreign capitals and was on terms of 
intimacy with many foreign financiers and statesmen. He took a 
notable part in preparing the way for the financial arrangements 
which made possible the acquisition of the Panama Canal by the 
United States government. He was also much interested in the 
scheme to rehabilitate Venezuela by the formation of an inter- 
national syndicate to pool the debts of the country, the United 
States acting as sponsor for the transaction. This plan was carried 
out during the term of President Roosevelt and Venezuela was 
placed on a firm basis financially. Mr. Seligman was also heavily 
interested in some of the Central American republics as well as 
in the Orient, in all of which instances he was working in harmony 
with the government. To mention the various enterprises at 



■5 2 2 Isaac Newlon Seligman [Oct. 

home in which he was interested either as director or investor 
would fill a large volume. 

Mr. Seligman was always an active and sturdy patriot. In his 
public activities he took a prominent part from the beginning in 
all the various movements for municipal reform. He was one of 
the leading figures of the Citizen Union and a valued member of 
the various committees, like the Committee of Seventy, the Com- 
mittee of Two Hundred and Fifty, and the Committee of One 
Hundred. In the New York Chamber of Commerce he took for 
many years a leading part. He was at the time of his death a 
member of the executive committee and had been for some years 
the chairman of one of its most important committees, that on 
taxation. The report of this committee contributed not a little 
toward the reform of public finance. Mr. Seligman was also very 
much interested in the matter of Civil Service Reform, to which 
he contributed liberally both of his time and of his money. 

Among the national movements to which he was particularly 
attached was the Child Labor Association, of which he was one 
of the founders. He was also a member of the American Academy 
of Political and Social Science and of the New York Academy of 
Political Science, before both of which bodies he repeatedly made 
addresses. He took a great interest in the affairs of the American 
Economic Association. 

In the more purely civic organizations, Mr. Seligman took a 
notable part. Having early become convinced of the need of 
model tenements, he was one of the founders of the City and 
Suburban Homes Company, acting as its treasurer for many years. 
He took a deep interest in the problem of the social evil and was 
a prominent member of the Committee of Fourteen and later of 
the Committee of Seven. He was the head of the Civic Forum 
and the vice-president of the Peoples' Institute, always lending a 
ready ear to the demands for municipal progress. 

The list of his philanthropic associations would be too long to 
recount in detail. It may be mentioned that he was a vice- 
president of the United Hebrew Charities and for several decades 
one of the leading officers of the St. John's Guild. 

Mr. Seligman had rare musical and artistic gifts, which he 
had inherited from his father. He was not only passionately 
devoted to the piano, but he was a draftsman of no mean order 
and spent much of his time in drawing. He was one of the 
Trustees of the New York Symphony Society as well as of the 
New York Oratorical Society and helped to found the Institute 
of Musical Art, the leading organization of its kind in this country. 
He was a discriminating connoisseur of paintings and had made a 
notable collection of the best examples of American art, in which 
he was especially interested. 

His personal characteristics were such as to endear him to a 
host of friends in every walk of life. Among his intimate friends, 
to mention only the departed, were, in the early days, President 



igiS.] Isaac Newton Seligman, 323 

Grant, Speaker Reed, and later on, President McKinley, Senator 
Mark Hanna, Carl Schurz, and others. 

In lieu of any further comments we append herewith a few 
extracts from some of the remarks made by his admirers at 
various public meetings held in his honor: 

Hon. Robert C. Cornell, City Magistrate: 

"Isaac N. Seligman has been a leader of men, and a 
real guide to honest, clean living. In short, a shining 
example to us all. He was so reliable, so forgetful of self, 
and so thoughtful of others, so steadfast, so constant, and 
so true. His loss leaves a void that cannot be filled and 
is felt not only by his family and intimate friends, but by 
the community at large." 

John B. Pine, Trustee and Secretary of Columbia University: 

"The death of Isaac N. Seligman will be deeply felt 
by the University and by all Columbia men. Among the 
latter he was widely and universally esteemed for his 
never-failing kindliness and for his keen and active in- 
terest in everything connected with Columbia, from his 
student days when he rowed on the 'Varsity Crew to the 
very end, almost the last act of his life being to send a 
contribution for carrying on courses in Extension Teach- 
ing. While his generosity was proverbial only those most 
closely connected with the University can realize or ap- 
preciate how constant was his thought for its welfare, not 
only giving liberally when asked, but constantly on the 
alert with suggestions and substantial aid to advance its 
interests. But his devotion to the University was only 
one evidence of his public spirit, which led him to take 
an active part in innumerable philanthropic agencies and 
made him one of the most untiring supporters of every 
movement which aimed to secure better government for 
the City. As a type of the citizen Columbia aims to pro- 
duce, conscientiously and unfailingly devoted to the 
highest ideals and ever ready to render a service, large or 
small, to his Alma Mater, to the relief of suffering, or to 
the city, no finer example can be found than the gentle, 
modest, and warm-hearted friend whom we have lost in 
Isaac N. Seligman, whose name should always have a 
high place on Columbia's roll of honor." 

At a memorial meeting of the Chamber of Commerce, Alfred 
E. Marling, Esq., addressed the members as follows: 

"To pay a tribute to the worth and memory of Mr. 
Seligman is a privilege which any of the members of this 
Chamber would prize. The resolutions, which have just 
been offered admirably express, in fitting language, the 
feeling of the Chamber as a whole, and I very proudly 
second the resolution. 



3 2d Isaac Newton Seligman. [Oct. 

To those of us who came in closer touch with him in 
his committee work, our loss is indeed great. One early 
learned, in close association with him, to have for him a 
warm friendship, by reason of his simple, modest, con- 
siderate, patient character. The impression that one 
received in coming closer to him was that in any under- 
taking in which he was interested his dominating purpose 
was to help it along in any way within his power. He 
gave himself freely to the services of many causes in this 
city, political, municipal affairs, and a varietv of public 
and private charities. Truly in the words of Oliver 
Goldsmith, this friend of ours had ' Learned the luxury 
of doing good.' Those of us who knew him intimately 
in association on committees (and that was the privilege 
of the speaker) learned to appreciate the courteous way 
in which he respected the judgment of those who opposed 
him. Here again one must credit him with believing the 
saying of Emerson, 'That life is not so short but that there 
is always time enough for courtesy.' 

In Mr. Seligman's death, the business community has 
lost a banker of the highest probity and ability; the city 
has lost a devoted and intelligent citizen; and this 
Chamber has lost a warm supporter, and its members a 
kind and affectionate friend. It is indeed fitting that we 
tender to the members of his family, — that beloved circle 
in which all the warmth and loving qualities of our 
friend's nature found fullest scope, — our sincere sym- 
pathy, and assure them how high was our appreciation 
of him. 

'We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; 
In feeling, not in figures on a dial. 

We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives 
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.' 

Mr. Seligman belonged to a great and noble race 
which has rendered imperishable service to the world for 
thousands of years, and left a literature full of beautiful 
and loving and helpful thoughts. I think it was Mr. 
Beecher years ago, in preaching on a text from the Psalms, 
in that beautiful imagery of which he was such a master, 
said that some of the Psalms were like a bird flying 
through time, singing a song of comfort or inspiration or 
admonition; and it may not be unfitting, Mr. President, 
to recall one of those Psalms as we remember this dear 
* friend of ours who belonged to that noble and great race. 

' Blessed is the man that walketh not in the coun- 
sel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of 
sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in 
his law doth he meditate day and night. 



1918.] Isaac Newton Seligman. 325 

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers 
of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 
his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he 
doeth shall prosper.' " 

After which R. Fulton Cutting, Esq., pronounced this eulogy: 
" I wish to add a few words to those which have been 
already uttered in tribute to the memory of Isaac N. 
Seligman. It has been my privilege to be closely asso- 
ciated with him for many years and in many ways. I 
have had unusual opportunity to measure his value to 
this community and the loyalty of his friendship. De- 
spite his sixty-two years he was a young man, for he had 
the enthusiasm of youth for the noble ideals that cap- 
tured his imagination and enlisted his active and generous 
service. Recognizing early the unequalled possibilities 
of philanthropy inherent in good government, he gave 
his zealous cooperation to every endeavor to express con- 
science and practical efficiency in political administration. 
His counsel, energetic service and contributions were 
among the best assets of the movements for political re- 
form that have particularly characterized the history of 
the City, State and Nation for the past three decades. 

You will remember that when Mr. Bryce wrote the 
American Commonwealth ' he chose the City of New 
York to illustrate the disastrous effects of Boss Govern- 
ment that seemed to result from the exercise of popular 
sovereignty in American municipalities. If he should re- 
write the 'American Commonwealth' today, he would 
tell a different story of the City of New York and it would 
be to Isaac N. Seligman, and men of his type, that our 
city should be indebted for the nobler picture of its 
political life that Mr. Bryce would represent upon the 
canvas. There are few men to whom this city is more 
greatly indebted for the rescue of its reputation than 
Isaac Seligman. There are few men who have con- 
tributed more largely to give New York the scientific, 
efficient and honorable administration which it now en- 
joys. While Mr. Seligman clung tenaciously to the 
political and economic principles that appealed to his 
intelligence, he was singularly tolerant in his attitude 
toward those who differed from him and political cam- 
paigns did not cost him the loss of their confidence and 
regard. If controversy could only be conducted with the 
temperament and disposition of Isaac Seligman, the re- 
conciliation of many differences which now agitate 
society would be prompt and cordial. 

Mr. Seligman's activities were significantly with en- 
terprises of social betterment of fundamental nature. 
In the spirit of Cardinal Manning's famous dictum: 
'Domestic Life Creates a Nation," he discerned the re- 



326 Inscriptions from Clift or Drew Cemetery. [Oct. 

lation between citizenship and the housing of the poor 
and was one of the founders of The City and Suburban 
Homes Company, the principal model tenement enter- 
prise of this city. He became its Treasurer and gave to 
it untiring and important service. The appreciation of 
the comforts and conveniences of the Company's build- 
ings by the 10,000 members of wage earners' families 
whom they housed, gave him keen satisfaction. His own 
home was a model one but his enjoyment of it was in- 
complete without this endeavor to provide similar bless- 
ings for others less fortunate than himself. 
It has been well said, 

' The richest gifts of nature kept unshared 
Become but poverty; goods unbestowed, 
Like fruits ungathered shrivel into blight 
That mars the soul's new blossoming.' 
The sharing of his goods with others was a distinguish- 
ing characteristic of Mr. Seligman. He apprehended 
clearly the obligations of wealth and the extent of his 
beneficence will only be known at the last great day for 
he never trumpeted his gifts to any audience. 

Honor to the memory of Isaac Seligman — philanthro- 
pist, model citizen, loyal friend."

1918.] Tunis Denise of Freehold, New Jersey, 1704-1797. 351 



TUNIS DENISE OP FREEHOLD, NEW JERSEY, 
1704-1797. 



Contributed by Helen Lincklaen Fairchild, 

Cazenovia, N. Y. 



For many years the writer, one of his descendants, has sought 
to trace the descent of Tunis Denise of Freehold, New Jersey, 
and to reconcile the little that can be found concerning him with 
the account of his .parentage given by the Rev. G. C. Schenck in 
a letter to the late Mrs. Charles Haight Conover of Freehold, 
now through her kindness in my possession. 

I now submit the following. to show that this Tunis Denise 
was the youngest son of Helena, daughter of Jacques Cortelyou 
of Nayack (who died between 1692 and 1693) and her husband 
Dionys Teunessen, and married Catherine Van Dyck, whose 
eldest child' Helena, married Samuel, son of Judge Jonathan 
Forman of Middletown Point, New Jersey. 

While Dr. Schenck was an acknowledged authority on New 
Jersey history and genealogy, his statement to Mrs. Conover 
that Tunis Denise of Freehold was indentical with that Teunis 
Denyse, son of Dionys Teunessen and Helena Cortelyou (daughter 
of Jacques Cortelyou), who was "baptized April 2, 1692,", and 
"died about 1788," must be incorrect, since the will of Tunis" of 
Freehold with whom we are concerned, was executed April 2, 
1792, and probated Jan. 16, 1798. 

We may scarcely assume that the probate would have been 
delayed for nearly six years in any event, or that the testator had 
already reached his hundredth year on the day that he signed 
the will, so that neither date given by Dr. Schenck can be recon- 
ciled with the authoritative dates of the will and probate. 

It was plain that something more was needed to establish the 
times of Tunis of Freehold's birth and death, but for years my 
search was unsuccessful. His first wife was Catherine van Dyke, 
as shown by the inscription on their daughter Helena Forman's 
gravestone, in the old burial ground at Freneau, New Jersey, 
and by Hendrick van Dyke's will.* His second wife was Fran- 
cynthe Hendrickson, as shown by entries in the records of the 
old Freehold Dutch Church, kept by the pastor at Marlboro, in 
1895. Both were interred in the " Scotch Lanes " burying ground, 
near Freehold, well known locally as the last home of all the 
Denises, and situated nearly opposite the farm still spoken of as the 
" Tunis Denise place." His granddaughter, Mrs. John Baird, sent 
me word that he too had been laid there, but not one monument 
bearing the name of Denise is among the few that remain in the 
neglected thicket, long since plundered of most of its headstones, 
on the little hill on the Colt's Neck Road. Nor could any trace 

* N. Y. Probate Records, Oct. 30, 1751. 



354 Tunis Denise of Freehold, New Jersey, 1704-1707. [Oct. 

be found of this generation of the family in any other of the 
"Burying Grounds of Old Monmouth" and when the search for 
the tombstones was finally abandoned, the hunt for the genealogy 
seemed hopeless. 

From other authorities however, it can now be shown that 
Dr. Schenck was correct in saying that Tunis of Freehold was a 
son of Helena Cortelyou by her second husband Dionys Tunis or 
Teunessen, though not her son of the same name baptized April 2, 
1692. 

An old Dutch silver-clasped Testament and Psalter, printed in 
1758, shown me by the kindness of its owner, Mrs. Lilian Denise 
Snyder of Freehold, which was the property of her ancestor 
Daniel, son of Tunis Denise of Freehold and contains his family 
record, has upon a fly-leaf at the end of the book, the following 
entries, which though not giving his parentage, do furnish the 
long sought dates. They read thus: 

" In the year of our Lord one thousand and seven hundred 
and four, 15th of June, Tunis Denise was born." 

" Tunis Denise departed this Life, the 10 Day of December, 
in the year of our Lord 1797." 

While it seems as if this record might be accepted as final 
authority for the birth-date of Tunis of Freehold, as well as for 
that of his death ( the latter moreover being borne out by the date 
of the probate of nis will), the copies by Onderdonk in the Long 
Island -Historical Society of the Reformed Dutch Church of Kings 
County Records, on the contrary, to which I turned for his bap- 
tism as well as for that of the other children of Helena Cortelyou 
and Dionys or Denyse Teunessen, as also for their marriages, again 
baffled me. For there the baptism of Tunis Denise, their second 
son of that name* was given as on April 2, 169*, Dr. Schenck's 
date again, probably derived by him from this very source. 

Though these copies of the records of this Church of Kings 
County — while the best that remain — are incomplete, like the 
original, the absence of all corroboration of the Dutch Testa- 
ment entries could not fail to suggest that Tunis of Freehold 
might have been a collateral only of Helena and Dionys Teunes- 
sen, and that all clue to his parentage had hopelessly vanished in 
the general mist of Teunessens, Denises, and other variations of 
the name, were it not that the baptismal records are missing 
from 1 69 1 to 1 7 10. But the Kings County Real Estate Records 
remained still to be consulted, and there I found, in a series of 
documents, from the two last of which I now quote (in abridged 
version), mention of a third Teunis Denise, son of Helena and 
Dionys, as follows: — 

L,iber 4 of Conveyances, p. 357, Brooklyn Real Estate Records: 

"Nov. 3, 1780. I Jaques Denyson of New Utrecht in Kings 

County on Nassau Island in the Province of New York, yeoman, 

am bound unto Hendrick Hendrickson my ffather-in-law (i. e. 

stepfather), and Helena Hendrickson, my mother," etc. 

* The first, baptized April 24, 1687, died young. See p. 93, Early Settlers 
of Kings County, by Teunis G. Bergen. 



1918.] Tunis Denise of Freehold, New Jersey, 1704-1797. 355 

Ibid, p. 198. Bond. 

"1717, Aug. 15. I Hendrick Hendrickson, of New Utrecht in 
Kings County, yeoman, am bound unto Jaques Teunissen of Town 
and County aforesaid in 400 pounds, the condition being if Hen- 
drick Hendrickson conveys to Jaques Teunissen all the right and 
title which by certain letters Patent the said Hendrick Hendrick- 
son now hath in and to a certain ferry at the Narrows between 
Nassau Island and Staten Island at decease of his now wife, or 
when her youngest son called Teunis Teunisen shall attain to the 
age of twenty one years, this obligation to be void," etc. 

Now, it being well known that Helena Cortelyou (the widow 
first of Nicholas Rutgerz Van Brunt, then of Dionys Teunessen), 
married (before Sept. 12, 1709)* Hendrick Hendrickson for her 
third husband, it seems in the absence so far as I can learn of 
any conflicting testimony, that "her youngest son Teunis Teuni- 
sen" who was under age in 1717, may be identified beyond 
reasonable doubt with Tunis Denise of Freehold, who by the 
Dutch Testament entry was born June 15, 1704, and died Dec. 10, 
1797,— and whose will we find in Trenton, N. J., probated Jan. 16, 
1798. With this chain of evidence the case must rest. It is 
however strengthened in more than one point still to be men- 
tioned, nor does the change of the name " Teunis Teunisen " to 
that of Tunis Denise present a difficulty to any one having a 
slight knowledge of the peculiarities of the system of names 
among the Dutch. 

His brother Jaques Teunissen, also mentioned in the bond, 
became Jaques Denise. Morover, Bergen says that the children 
of Helena and Dionys Teunessen kept Denise as a surname, 
while that of his brothers' descendants became Teunessens in 
various forms of spelling. 

I may add that it is probable that part of the land in Mon- 
mouth County deeded Oct. 27, 17 18, by Hendrick Hendrickson to 
"Jaques and Tunis Denise, both of New Utrecht," and described 
in the deed (see Brooklyn Real Estate Records, Liber 4, p. 204) 
is the same with that now known as the Tunis Denise place. f 

His grandson, my great-great-uncle, Major Samuel S. Forman, 
who died at Syracuse, N. Y., in 1862, aged 97, in an unpublished 
memoir in my possession, written in his old age, states that " Mrs. 
Garret Rapelje and my mother" (Helena Denise, wife of Samuel 
Forman, daughter of Tunis by his first wife Catherine van Dyke) 
" were both named after the same lady, a relative on Long Island." 
This also fortifies my theory, for according to Bergen this Mrs. 
Garret Rapelje was Helena Denise, born 1732, second daughter of 
Jaques Denise, oldest son of Dionys Teunessen and his wife 
Helena Cortelyou, by his wife Reymeriga Simonson. 

Jacques lived at the homestead at the Narrows, doubtless the 
one referred to in the deeds, already quoted, to Jacques. 

* On this day she signed her name Helena Hendrickson as witness to 
baptism of Elena, daughter of Abraham van Tuyl, at the same time as Hen- 
drick Hendrickson. See "Staten Island Baptisms."

Historical Society Memoirs, vol. ii. 



356 Tunis Denise of Freehold, New fersey, 1704.-/797. [Oct. 

These two Helena Denises were therefore first cousins and 
were both, I believe, named for their grandmother Helena Cor- 
telyou. Garret Rapelje, the husband of the younger, was a 
New York importing merchant, who remained loyal to the Crown, 
and later removed to New Orleans. He lived at the Wallabout, 
and was of the well known family founded by his grandfather, 
Joris de Rapelje, the exile from "fair Rochelle " and his wife 
Catalyntie Trico, parents of Sara de Rapelje, " the first born 
Christian daughter of Nieuw Nederlandt." 

If my reasoning be correct, it furnishes the link long missing 
in the genealogy of Tunis Denise of Freehold. 

We begin to trace it on the first page of the Trouw (Marriage) 
Boek of the Reformed Dutch Church of the City of New York, 
where "Theunis Nyssen, j. m. van Bunninck in't Sticht van UVtr, 
en Phaebea Faelix, j.d. van Jarleston in Engelt." [Theunis Nys- 
sen; young man of Bunninck in the diocese of Utrecht, and Phebea 
Felix,* young woman of Jarleston in England] are recorded as 
married "den 11, Febr., Anno 1640." In 1646 he owned a house 
and lot on the Great Highway, opposite the company's garden 
on Manhattan Island. 

The baptismal records of the same church give the christen- 
ings of their many children, of whom Nys (Dionys) Tunis was the 
seventh, baptised April 12th, 1654. He married (1) Oct. 22, 1682, 
Elizabeth Polhemus, daughter of Domine Theodorus Polhemus; 
m. (2) April 12, 1685, "Helena Cortelyou, daughter of Jacques 
Corteljou," and the respectability of the fathers of both his wives 
would seem to show that he was a man of standing in the com- 
munity, for not only was a Dutch Domine usually a much re- 
garded personage, but Jacques Cortelyou, 1st, though he did not 
wear the cloth, held offices of trust, and was a man of distinction. 
While it is on the distaff side that Tunis Denise descends from 
him, we should not pass by this ancestor unnoticed. 

By the Catalogues of the Dutch and English Manuscripts in 
the New York State Records at Albany, we find the first mention 
of Jacques Cortelyou under date of July 21, 1654, when he de- 
clines to be Sheriff of New Amsterdam. 

Aug. 23, 1656, he was ordered by the Council to survey lands; 
Jan. 23, 1657, he was appointed and sworn in Surveyor General 
or " Surveyor of the Kings Woods," and petitioned, as Agent 
of the heirs of Cornelis van Werckhoven, for leave to found and 
erect a village on Long Island at the bay of the North River 
(New Utrecht) which was granted, provided the plot of proposed 
village be submitted to the Director or Council. 

Aug. 30, 1658, he was ordered to prepare a map of lots within 
the city of New Amsterdam, and May 3, 1660, commissioned 

* Phebea Felix, daughter of Maria Robberts or Robertson, and Jan Seles, 
an Englishman from Devonshire, a planter in New Amsterdam in 1638. Died 
1645. His will mentions "Tonis Nyssen, son-in-law." — Bergen. 



igi8.] Tunis Denise of Freehold, New Jersey, 1704-1797. 357 

with others to examine the vicinity of Breuckelen, report how 
many plantations can be laid out there, and prepare map of the 
same. Again in 1660 he is ordered to survey and make map of 
lots within New Amsterdam, in 1663 to make more surveys, and 
in 1656 to survey lots at the Delaware. In 1670, he is with others, 
Commissioner for affairs of Esopus, and new villages adjacent, 
and in 1685 commissioned to be justice of Kings County. 

His affairs had been complicated with those of the heirs of 
his principal, Cornells van Werckhoven, but this matter can 
scarcely be disentangled now, nor can we know why he mort- 
gaged his "Bouwery at New Utrecht," both in 1674 and 1684, or 
why in 1692 he was "to be brought before the Council to answer 
for contempt." Perhaps the infirmities of age caused this, for on 
July 27, 1693, his widow Neeltje van Duyn of New Utrecht, gives 
power of attorney to her sons to settle his estate. 

The ferry, between Long Island and Staten Island, he seems 
always to have owned, for in 17 19, his sons petitioned against 
any hindrance therein from their brother-in-law Hendrick Hen- 
drickson, "for they and their father have had the privilege for 
almost fifty years." 

The Civil List of the State of New York, edition of 1888, gives 
Jacques Cortelyou's name as Surveyor General in 1671, and in 
1674 as one of the delegates "from the Dutch towns" to confer 
with Governor Colve. 

Leaving now the official records we may turn to the Journal 
(in the Long Island Historical Memoirs, vol. 1) of the Labadist 
Fathers, who during their sojourn in America in 1679 and 1680, 
saw much of Cortelyou, then " advanced in years." They de- 
scribed his hospitality, sincerity, cordiality and kindness to them 
when they repeatedly visited him at his stone house in Nayack,* 
near which the Nayack Indians, whom he permitted to remain, 
much interested and astonished them. " He came from Utrecht 
in quality of tutor to the children of Cornelis van Werckhoven of 
that city, first patentees direct from the West India Company of 
Nayack or Fort Hamilton." Mr. Bergen states that he married 
Neeltje van Duyn, and lived first at New Amsterdam, but later 
owned and occupied the Nayack tract in New Utrecht. He was 
supposed to have made the first map of the City of New York 
on New Utrecht patents in 1668. He was an accomplished man, 
versed in languages and mathematics, in medicine and other 
sciences, with a philosophical turn of mind and a practical ability 
equally valuable in pioneer life. 

He died about 1693. 

The Labadist's mention of Jacques' French blood, and Major 
Forman's impression of his grandfather Tunis Denise's " French 
funds," recall an old tale of some ancestress who escaped once 
upon a time from imprisonment and danger, though when and 
where no one now can tell. Succeeding in making the sentry 
dead drunk who guarded their door, she with others of the family

stepped over his body as he lay asleep across the threshold and 
made their way to safety. It would seem that this story, so often 
told in so many families, if it has any foundation in our own, may 
also point to Jacques' French descent, his mother or grandmother, 
the days of St. Bartholomew, and a flight to the Low Countries 
where later we find him, before the Revocation of the Edict of 
Nantes.* 

[From Vol. I, Memoirs, L. I. Historical Society.] 
When the Fathers made their voyage hither, one of their 
fellow-passengers was Cortelyou's brother-in-law, Gerrit van 
Duyne. With " the good old people his parents " they later 
lodged in New Amsterdam, and they describe with sympathy the 
tears of joy with which his father-in-law, Jacob Swart, greeted 
him on his return. Gerrit had lived here long, and had married 
the daughter here, though she and her children were now living 
in Zwolle. They came back to New Amsterdam before the 
journal closed. 

It being September the profusion of apples and other fruits — 
more peaches lying on the ground in the road than the pigs 
would eat — much impressed the travellers. When they first 
visited Jacques Cortelyou on his Nayack tract, near the " Hoof- 
den " or headlands at the Narrows, they found him "a man ad- 
vanced in years, born in Utrecht but of French parents, as we 
could readily discover from all his action, looks and language. 
He had studied philosophy in his youth and spoke Latin and 
good French. He was a mathematican and sworn land surveyor. 
He had also formerly learned several sciences and had some 
knowledge of medicine. The worst of it was he was a good 
Cartesian and not a good Christian, regulating himself and all 
externals by reason and justice only; nevertheless he regulated 
all things better by these principles than most people in these 
parts do, who bear the name of Christian or pious persons. His 
brother-in-law and ourselves were welcomed by him and his wife. 
He treated us with every civility, although two of his sons being 
sick and he much confined in attending upon them, he was much 
interrupted in attending to us. . . . 

There were many good stone houses in New Utrecht, of which 
Jacques' was one, where we returned to spend the night. After 
supper we went to sleep in the barn upon some straw spread with 
sheep skins in the midst of the continual grunting of hogs, 
squealing of pigs, bleating and coughing of sheep, barking of 
dogs, crowing of cocks, cackling of hens, and a goodly quantity 
of fleas and vermin and all with an open barn door through 
which a fresh north west wind was blowing. Though we could 
not sleep, we could not complain, as we had the same quarters 
and kind of bed that their own son usually had who had now on 
our arrival crept in the straw behind us." Again on "Tuesday, 
Oct. 3, we arrived at Jacques' house, where we were welcome; 
we slept for the night in our old place. In the morning the 
horses were harnessed to the wagon for the purpose of carrying 

* The Bergen Family, p. 228, mentions " Jaques Cortelyou, the Huguenot."

us to the city, and bringing back some medicines which had ar- 
rived for Jaques from Holland in our ship. We breakfasted to 
the full, and rode first to the bay, then to Vlacke Bos, then thro 
Breuklen to the ferry and leaving the wagon there, crossed over 
the river and arrived home at noon. We sent back to Jaques 
half of our tincture calimanaris, and half of our balsam sulp- 
hureus and some other things. He had been of service to us in 
several respects as he promised to be, and that with perfect 
willingness." 

On Staten Island they met Pierre le Gardenier, formerly 
gardener to the Prince of Orange and who knew him well. 

Nov. 10. "Jaques had promised to show us the laws of the 
country," so they went to Breukelen, Vlacke Bos, and Nieu Uyt- 
recht "on a large fine wagon road again to Nayack, where we 
arrived about three o'clock. It had been very warm and we were 
tired. Jaques' wife bade us welcome, but he was in the fields. 
After we had rested ourselves and eaten something we went out- 
side upon the banks of this beautiful bay, to breathe a little air 
and look at several vessels, going and coming. In the meantime 
he came with his son to meet us. They had been to the fish 
fuyck which they had lying there upon the shore, and out of 
which they had taken at noon some fine fish, but at present the 
water was too high. Another of his sons had been out shooting 
but had not shot anything; though the day before he had shot a 
woodcock and a partridge before the door of his house, which we 
must taste this evening with some other things. While we were 
standing there the Fuyck was lifted again, from which they took 
out two fine bass. We ate of them also in the evening and found 
them very fine. . . . The game suited us very well. We had 
much conversation together, and informed ourselves in relation 
to various matters. He gave us some medicinal roots. He also 
let us look at the laws, which were written in a folio volume, but 
in very bad Dutch, for they had been translated from English 
into Dutch. As it was a large book and we could not copy it 
there, we requested him to let us take it home with us for that 
purpose. He consented upon condition that if we left for the 
South, we would then deliver it to his brother-in-law Gerrit who 
would hand it to him. We lodged that night somewhat better 
than we had done before in the barn, for we slept in his dwelling, 
and could feel where we had slept." 

nth Sat. . . . "We left about eight o'clock after taking 
some breakfast. He conducted us to New Utrecht. We lent 
him Les Pens/es des Pascal, which we judged would be useful to 
him." . . . 

12th. " We copied the laws." 

13th. " We took care that Jaques should receive the papers 
back again." 

They again spend a night with Jaques. 

3 Jan., 1690. " While we were getting some oysters at Gowanus, 
Gerrit with Jaques and his son and daughter rode up in a wagon. 
Jaques had come in the purpose of attending to a sick horse of 
Simon which had a certain disease they call here the staggers."

15th May, 1680. "Arrived at n at Jaques — he had been sick 
with a large ulcer on his neck but was better. We were welcome. 
He had suspected Theunis (a neighbor) of stealing a cow of his. 
Theunis later confessed, asked pardon and paid. Jaques who is 
one of the justices said, I forgive you from the bottom of my heart 
but I do this only to cause you to reflect and desist from your 
wickedness and to show you that you do not know or fear God, 
and that you may fear him more. Thereupon Theunis went away 
much affected and entirely subdued and we told Jaques that better 
things were now to be expected for him, at which Jaques was 
pleased. 

We dined with Jaques, and his grandson came and presented 
us a humming bird he had shot. Jaques impressed us very much 
with his sincerity and cordiality in everything we had to do with 
him or wherein he could be of any service to us. We left with 
him the little book which we had lent to him, and which he said 
he had found much pleasure in reading, Les Pensees de M. Pascal. 
We took our leave of him and went to Gowanus." 

Returning to the Denise line we find that Cortelyou's son-in- 
law Dionys Teunessen, survived him some years, having died, 
Bergen says, "previous to 1707." His child Teunis of Freehold 
was then, according to the Dutch Testament, about three years 
old. The boy was perhaps born in Midwout, or Flatbush, where 
his father was a master-carpenter, held property, and lived for 
many years, but his mother " Helena had received as her portion 
from her father the Nayack tract, now Fort Hamilton," and his 
later home doubtless was in the "dwelling house" mentioned in 
the bond of Nov. 3, 1720, as being near the "Ferry between 
Nassau and Staten Islands,"* concerning which ferry there appear 
many family agreements and disagreements, both in the Brook- 
lyn Records and the Colonial Records of the State of New York. 

Later prints agree with earlier ones in showing the old stone 
Denyse house near the water's edge by the landing, which may 
easily have been the one to which Jacques welcomed the weary 
Labadist travellers. 

As we have seen, Helena, in 1720, with her third husband 
Hendrick Hendrickson, conveyed to her son Jaques Teunessenf 
her dwelling house and property there under conditions which 
secured to them its use and occupation for their lives. 

Truly their lives had fallen unto them in pleasant places, 
along the gateway of the great harbor, and it was not only a 
beautiful possession but a valuable one, controlling as it did the 

* Denyse's Ferry is now Bensonhurst. 

■f One of Jacques' sons was Denyse Denyse as shown by his will in New 
York probate records, and Miss Flint says in Early Long Island that so late as 
the Revolution the broad roofed stone house of Denyse Denyse was then stand- 
ing on the site of Fort Hamilton. From this house "General Howe issued on 
Aug. 23 the proclamation which was his ultimatum before the battle of Long 
Island, and here at Denyse's the British disembarked." The place was known 
down to this time as Hendrickson's, Jacques', and Denyse's, and these names 
correspond with the successive ownerships of Helena Hendrickson; her son 
Jacques Denyse, and her grandson Denyse Denyse.

important ferry at the Narrows, and a landing on the Long Island 
shore for boats from vessels wherever bound. 

Whether Tunis in his youth dwelt at Flatbush or Nayack, the 
old Road Book of New Utrecht will show that every time that he 
passed over " the road from Gowanus to Yellow Hook, by the 
Narrows and New Utrecht fishing beach," he went by the house of 
" Hendrick van Dyck of the Yellow Hook, of the town of Brook- 
land, Kings County, yeoman," along "the used road, till you 
come back to Hendrick Hendrickson's." 

Neighbors, therefore, as well as sweethearts, his marriage to 
Catherine van Dyck, Hendrick's daughter, must have taken place 
by 1727. In 1728 their daughter Helena was born. 

By this time the tide of Dutch emigration was fast setting 
from New York to East New Jersey, and Tunis and Jacques 
Denise were already, as we have seen, holding property in that 
State. Whether Tunis migrated to Monmouth County directly, 
or lived for a time on Staten Island, in all probability he soon 
built for Catherine and himself the house still standing, known 
today as the " Tunis Denise place." 

It is at the head of a little lane planted on both sides with 
cherry trees, running up from the Colt's Neck Road near Freehold, 
and is considered, as I was told some years ago by a resident of 
Freehold, to be about one hundred and seventy-five years old, 
which tallies well enough with our dates. It is of the Long Island 
Dutch type of dwelling, tent roof, small stoop, Dutch door, 
shingled from top to bottom with long narrow shingles, rounded 
at the lap, and all but worn through with the weather. A small 
formal flower garden, with box borders, is in front. Passing 
through this to the stoop, unless you rest on the benches on either 
side, you enter through the massive Dutch door to an interior, 
with rooms not large, but arranged for substantial comfort and 
convenience as to size and number. 

We know little of the builder of the house except from the 
Memoirs already quoted of his grandson Major S. S. Forman, 
youngest child of Helena, who was born 21 July, 1765, and who 
died at Syracuse, N. Y., July, 1862. 

" My maternal grandfather, Tunis Denise," he says, " was a 
remarkable still, quiet man, farming was his occupation, active 
and industrious, never sought for office. He was middle size 
in person, rather quiet and amiable, pleasant in countenance, 
astonishing memory, could call all his numerous grandchildren 
by name and always salute them with a kiss. I am inclined to 
think that he was of a French and Holland connexion. He was 
wealthy and it seemed to me that he had some French funds. 
He was a very affectionate man, loved and esteemed by every- 
body — he had no enemies. He enjoyed remarkable health and 
rode horseback when upwards of 80 years old. When he lost his 
second wife he seemed to spend all his time in riding about to 
visit his numerous children. He retained his faculties to the 
last, and must have been nearly a hundred years old when he 
died. In his family all talked Dutch — white and black. His 
two wives were buried in the Dutch burial ground at the Dutch 



362 Tunis Denist 0/ Freehold, New Jersey, 1704-1797. [Oct. 

lanes in Freehold. I can just remember his second wife's funeral, 
the procession was immensely long, with carriage and horseback. 
She was buried in a burying ground in the Dutch lanes. It was 
customary in those days to send out invitations only to relations 
to attend the funerals. On the day of burial a man and a woman 
are appointed to carry spirituous liquors to the people — the man 
to the males, the woman to the females; the liquor carriers, so 
called, are furnished with white gloves. The people never leave 
the grave till the interment is all completed — the minister then 
returns compliments and thanks." 

Though our concern is not with the generation later than 
Tunis, it may be said here that his first born child Helena, lies 
in the old cemetery near Middletown Point (Matawan), New 
Jersey, at the place called Freneau, in honor of her famous son- 
in-law, the poet, and in fields once given to the church before 
the Revolution by her husband Samuel Forman, who is there 
interred by her side. 

During the war the church edifice, to the construction of 
which he had been a liberal contributor, was occupied by the 
British, burned down and never rebuilt, the enclosure, remaining 
however, as to this day, sacred as a place of burial. 

Besides his daughter Helena, Tunis Denise's children, on 
Major Forman's authority, were as follows: 

Catherine, m. Garret Hendrickson. 

Nelly, m. John Forman. 

Phoebe, m. Rev. Benjamin Dubois of Dutch Reformed 
Church. 

Jane, m. Cornelius Couwenhoven (now Conover). 

Anna, m. Daniel Forman. 

Polly, m. John Schenck. 

Denise Denise, 1st son, m. Miss Francis. 

Daniel Denise, 2nd son, m. Jane, sister to John Schenck. 
"All these aunts were fine looking and strong," he writes, 
"except Aunt Phebe, yet she outlived them all, and died in her 
ninety-sixth year; all were amiable and affectionate, and blessed 
with fine children. Their husbands were gentleman farmers, 
settled in Monmouth County within a short ride of each other, all 
active friends to their country in the Revolutionary War. I well 
remember when ladies wore scarlet or blue cloth cloaks. My aunts 
when they visited put on blue fine cloth cloaks, long and full, 
with large hoods to cover a close black silk bonnet or cap. They 
always looked so well and comfortable." 

Dr. Welles, in his Brick Church Memorial, states that Domine 
Benjamin Dubois of the Freehold Church was present in 1777 at 
the first meeting of the General Synod of the Reformed Church 
in America. The Elder, Mr. Tunis Denise, signed subsequently 
with him the articles of agreement which formed the Dutch 
Churches of America into one ecclesiastical body." 

This Elder was probably Tunis Denise of Freehold. In the 
ancient vellum bound volume of the records of the Freehold 
Dutch Church, which was shown me in 1895 by the kindness of 



i9 [ 8.] Graveyard Inscriptions, Putnam Co., N.Y. 363 

Mr. van Zee, the pastor at Marlboro, New Jersey, I find his name 
as Elder of the congregation after 1764, and already in 1740 he 
and his second wife Francynthe Hendrickson were in the list of 
communicants. In the same book are written the baptisms of 
their many children, beginning with "Trintje" in 1732. I have, 
by the way, failed to find anywhere the baptism of Tunis himself, 
the wills of his parents, stepfather or grandparents on either side, 
but the will of his father-in-law Hendrick van Dyke, a well-to-do 
man, is in the New York Probate Records, and gives "unto my 
grandchild the child of my daughter Trintje deceased, the wife 
of Tunis Denise, the sum of one hundred and fifty pounds." His 
own will is in the Secretary of State's office, at Trenton, New 
Jersey. 

It is an open question as to the history of the other Teunis, 
born 1692. He may have lived and become the "cordwainer," 
for it was not unknown for the Dutch to give more than one 
living child the same name, and dates in this case might seem to 
imply it. Thus either might have been the executor named by 
their brother Jacques, who by the way seems never to have left 
the Nayack home. His will is also in the New York Probate 
Records, dated and probated 1739. 

If one chooses to drive out from old Utrecht, in Holland, to 
the town of Bunnik, one goes under broad alleys of huge beech 
trees, and finds a picturesque and tiny hamlet of exquisitely neat 
little houses, lying on both sides of a small stream. Beyond the 
bridge stands the church, and all is embowered in the stems and 
foliage of great trees that sift the sunlight on the greenest of 
turf. All about are deep-tilled meadows, woods, and peaceful 
country-seats. 

The name De Nyse today is not unknown in the Bishopric — 
the " Sticht " — of Utrecht, and would we follow " Tonis Nyssen, 
young man from Bunnick," further back than this, his point of 
departure from the old world to the new, it might be easier to 
trace his "line" there, than through the half preserved, though 
originally well kept, church and state records of New Nether- 
land.

SETTLERS OF THE COLONY OF RENSSELAERSWYCK, 

1637. 



Contributed by A. J. F. Van Laer. 



Among the Rensselaerswyck manuscripts which were salvaged 
from the fire in the state capitol of March 29, 191 1, is a memor- 
andum in the handwriting of Arent van Curler which adds some 
interesting details to our knowledge of the final stages of the 
voyage of the ship Rensselaerswyck. The heading of the memor- 
andum reads as follows: "The following persons are indebted 
to the owners of the ship Renselaerswyck for board, beginning on 
the first of October anno 1636 and ending anno 1637 on the date 
when each person landed in New Netherland." The memo- 
randum contains the names of 33 men, women and children 
and gives the exact date when each person left the ship. From 
the log of the ship, which is printed on pages 355-89 of the Van 
Rensselaer Bowier Manuscripts, it is known that the ship left 
Amsterdam Sept. 25, 1636, and the first of October anchored at the 
island of Texel to await a favorable wind and make final arrange- 
ments before proceeding on its voyage to New Netherland. The 
ship arrived at Manhattan on March 4, 1637. It sailed up the 
Hudson river on March 26, and on April 3 came to anchor half 
a mile below Beren Island. It remained there on account of

calms and contrary wind until April 6, and then continued its 
voyage to Fort Orange, where it arrived on April 7, 1637. The 
log states that on March 24, Pieter Cornelissen went up the river 
in a yacht. The memorandum shows that he did not sail alone, 
but took with him seven men, one boy, one woman and two 
children. Most of these men were carpenters. The natural 
inference is that as soon as a sloop could be procured they were 
sent ahead to put up some temporary shelter for the farmers, in 
accordance with the patroon's instructions, as contained in a 
letter to Jacob Albertsen Planck, dated Oct. 3, 1636. The next 
group of men left the ship when it came to anchor below Beren 
Island. They were farmers who settled on or near Papscanee 
Island, on the east side of the river, not far from Fort Orange. 
They may have gone up in the ship's boat or reached their des- 
tination over land. Quite likely, they did not start until April 6, 
and took with them Tys Barentsen, the shoemaker, who left the 
ship on that date. The two other men who are mentioned under 
date of April 6, did not reach the colony. Cornelis Thomassen, 
the smith, was killed by his helper, Hans Sevenhuysen, at 
Ilfracombe, in England, on Dec. 8, 1636, and Sevenhuysen was 
arrested. The final group of passengers includes those who left 
the ship after its arrival at Fort Orange. 

The memorandum belongs to a collection of letters and mis- 
cellaneous papers which were turned over to the New York 
State Library in Dec, 1910, more than two years after the pub- 
lication of the Van Rensselaer Bowier Manuscripts, Its existence 
was not known when the list of passengers of the ship Rensselaers- 
wyck which is printed on pages 809-16 of that volume was pre- 
pared. It affords therefore a means of testing the accuracy of 
the printed list. It will be found that every name in the memor- 
andum is accounted for in the book, with the exception of that of 
Thomas Jansz, which occurs at the end but seems to be entered 
by mistake, being apparently a repetition of the name of Thomas 
Jansz van Bunnick. It should be noted however that in the 
printed volume the names of Cornelis Maersen and> his wife are 
entered under the year 1631, when Cornelis Maersen first came 
to New Netherland, and that the "Cuyper," or cooper, who was 
with him is not definitely identified and may be any one of a 
number of persons who are listed in the book but not given in 
the present document. The fact that the names of these settlers 
do not appear in the memorandum is no proof that they did not 
come over in the ship Renssclaerswyck. We know from the 
patroon's letter to Jacob Planck that he had engaged 38 persons 
for his colony. The memorandum includes only such persons as 
were indebted for their board. 

The document brings out the fact that Jean Labatie, or 
" Johan Latyn," as his name is written in the manuscript, came 
from Verdun, in France. He was a carpenter by trade and in a 
letter to Planck, of May 10, 1638, is referred to as in the service 
of Albert Andriessen, who with Pieter Cornelissen and Claes 
Jansen van Naerden had a special contract with the patroon. 
The words " In compagnie," after Jean Labatie's name, seem to

indicate that he was associated with the men whose names pre- 
cede his, in other words, that Claes Jansen van Nykerck had 
taken the place of Claes Jansen van Naerden, who sailed a year 
later, and that Jean Labatie had been admitted to the partnership. 
The following is a complete copy of the memorandum, which 
on the back, in the handwriting of Mr. Berthold Fernow, is 
marked as number 1002 of the Rensselaerswyck manuscripts.

AN EARLY COLONIAL RECORD. 

A LIST OF THOSE PRESENT AT THE FUNERAL OF MRS. GERTRUYD 
(SCHUYLER) VAN CORTLANDT IN AUGUST, 1723, IN NEW YORK 

CITY WIDOW OF HON. STEPHANUS VAN CORTLANDT, 

WITH A FEW FAMILY NOTES. 



Contributed by Catharine T. R. Mathews. 



Gertruyd Schuyler was the daughter of Captain Philip Pieterse 
Schuyler— and of his wife Margaretta Van Slechtenhorst of 
Albany. She was born 4 Feb., 1654, at Albany; married at 
Albany, 3 Oct., 1671, Hon. Stephanus Van Cortlandt, son of Olaf 
Stevense Van Cortlandt and Annetje Lockeman, his wife. 

Stephanus Van Cortlandt was the first native-born Mayor of 
New York City — he was born 7 May, 1643. He held many im- 
portant Colonial positions; he died in New York, 25 Nov., 1700. 

Mrs. Van Cortlandt survived him 23 years. She was a very 
decided character and prominent in the history of the city during 
the Leislerian troubles. 

Hon. Stephanus Van Cortlandt was the first and only Lord of 
the Manor of Cortlandt. At his death there was a partition of 
the Manor between the surviving children who had all married 
in prominent Colonial families. Of their fourteen children, four 
died in early childhood, and their eldest son, Johannes, died 
during his father's lifetime. The Manor was divided in 10 
portions. 

1. Johannes, b. Oct., 1672; m. Anna Maria Van Schaik of 

Albany, left one child Gertruyd, who m. Philip Ver- 
plank — and inherited her father's portion, which included 
what is now Verplank's Point. 

2. Margaret, b. Aug., 1674; m. Col. Samuel Bayard. 

3. Anne, b. 12 Feb., 1676; m. Col. Stephen de Lancey. 

4. Maria, b. 4 April, 1678; m. (1) Kilian Van Rensselaer; 

m. (2) Rev. John Miln. 

5. Col. Philip Van Cortlandt, b. 9 Aug., 1680; m. Catharine, 

dau. of Hon. Abraham De Peyster — he received the 
Manor House and Lot 1, including the Croton River as 
his share; he was called Lord of the Manor by courtesy 
only, as also were his descendants who lived at the Manor 
House. 

6. Gertruyd, b. 12 Oct., 1688; m. Col. Henry Beekman. 

7. Elizabeth, b. 29 May, 1694; m. the Rev. William Skinner, 

the first Rector of St. Peter's Church, Perth Amboy, 
New Jersey. 

8. Stephen, b. 11 Aug., 1695; m. Catalina Staats of Albany. 

9. Catharine, b. 30 July, 1696; m. Hon. Andrew Johnson of 

Perth Amboy, New Jersey. 
10. Cornelia, b. 3 July, 1698, m. Col. Johannes Schuyler.
