LAYTON FAMILY 
OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY 



1 WILLIAM LAYTON, an Englishman, with his name spelled six different ways 
(Laighion, Lai ton, Latone, Lattone, Lawton, Lay ten), was one of the pioneer settlers of 
Middletown, New Jersey. 

1688, Mch. 25. He had a patent for land granted to him which was surveyed June 
9, 1688. Jan. 4, 1688, he recorded his cattle-mark. Apr. 30, 1703, John Stout, in a 
conveyance of land to his son Richard Stout, lying in Middletown, mentioned the lands 
of Richard Mount and William Lay ton as abutting properties. 

1702, Aug. 17-18, he made his will as William Lawton; proved June 28, 1708, in 
which he named his wife executrix, and she was probably the Violet Lawton to whom 
letters of administration were issued, and his six children.

It is possible there was some kinship between John Layton, of Newport, R. I., who 
deeded land to Richard Tew in payment for swine on Jan. 14, 1674, ^"d William Lawton, 
of Monmouth County, and perhaps even more likely that a kinship existed between 
William Layton, of Monmouth County, and Thomas Lawton, of Portsmouth: "Thomas 
Lawton, of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, to Giles Slocum of ye aforesaid town and province 
2 whole shares of land by me purchased of W" Reape of the place commonly called Nava- 
sink Narumsunk and Pootapeck, also land in and near Shrewsbury, April i, 1672. 
Witnesses: John Sanford, William Mairs."

2 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

2 WILLIAM LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, received his father's lands in 
Middletown, as appears under a conveyance in 17 lo, from Richard Mount to Eden Bur- 
rows, wherein his land is mentioned as upon the boundary, and which land we know had 
been his father's. However, Aug. lo, 1704, he was settled at Freehold, where he con- 
veyed land for £13, to Samuel Layton, which he had by deed from Richard Hartshorne 
Aug. 22, 1690, bounded by formerly Richard Stout, Jr., George Keith, formerly William 
Scott and the Gully. The witnesses were Thomas Layton, John Lawrence and William 
Lawrence. By deduction he was born between 1660 and 1670, and came with his father 
when a mere lad to Middletown. 

1731, Apr. 10, he made his will; proved May 15, 1735, calling himself of Freehold, 
yeoman, and mentioned: 

to his "cousin William Layton, Jr., of Freehold, yeoman, all that tract of land I pxirchased of William 
Scott;" wife Mary, upon whose death the residue of his estate is to pass to the aforesaid William Layton, 
Jr. Executors: Jonathan Forman, Esq., William Maddock. Witnesses: James Stanley, George Seemur, 
Mary Romaine. He made his mark to the will. His inventory was taken Feb. 5, 1734, and amounted 
to £257,09,cx). 

The "cousin" to whom he left his property was no doubt a nephew named after 
him, and probably the son of his brother John Layton, 5, yet he may have been a son 
of his brother, Samuel Layton, 6. 

3 THOMAS LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, resided at Lower Freehold, 
where he died in 1741, for Sept. 26, of that year, letters of administration upon his estate 
were issued to Joseph Williams and Peter Romeyne, of Lower Freehold, yeomen. 

Issue 

8 Sarah Layton married Joseph Williams 

9 Rachel Layton married Peter Romyne. They had: Christopher Romyne 

who died 1748, and whose wife was Rebecca; Layton Romyne and Samuel 
Romyne. 

There was a Thomas Layton who, with wife Lydia, sold land on Manasquan River 
to Christopher Romine, of Bethlehem, Hunterdon County, N. J., Nov. i, 1742. 

Freehold, N. J., Deeds. 

4 ANDREW LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, recorded his earmark in Mid- 
dletown, N. J., Mch. II, 1725-6, and this same mark is next found recorded to another 
Andrew Layton, Dec. 24, 1764, who was the son of John Layton and brother of Safety 
Layton. 

Issue 

10 John Layton 

5 JOHN LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, recorded his earmark in Middle- 
town, N. J., Mch. 3, 1719-20, which June, 1761, was passed on to his son William Layton, 
and still later, June 20, 1765, to William Layton's nephew, and of course John Layton's 
grandson, Anthony Layton.

LAYTON FAMILY OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 3 

6 SAMUEL LAYTON, son of William Layton, i, married Janet, daughter of 
William Oliphant. They were members of the Middletown Baptist Church in 17 12, and 
he was visited by a committee from this church in 1722. He died about 1732, and his 
wife was still alive April, 1734. From deeds recorded at Freehold, N. J., it appears that 
May 30, 1732, his widow Janet, signing by her mark, and his son Samuel Laton, as heir 
to his father Samuel Layton, deceased, conveyed to Andrew Layton his brother (and 
son of Samuel and Janet), land bounded by Thomas Layton on the North, by John 
Layton on the East, by Stephen Aumack and William Layton on the South. Again the 
same individuals were grantees May 30, 1733? to Samuel and Janet Lay ton's son, 
Thomas Layton, Jr., of fifty-four acres of land which said deceased Samuel Layton had 
by deed from John Heritage Nov. i, 1707. Thomas Lay ten, Jr., and Samuel Lay ten, 
yeoman, conveyed to Andrew Layten, yeoman, part of a tract of land granted to Samuel 
Layton, the deceased father of the said Thomas, Samuel and Andrew Layten, by deed 
from John Heritage Nov. i, 1707. 

Issue* 

13 William Layton, supposed; as both he and the father of Samuel Layton, 6, 

were christened William, but there is no evidence to prove such a son, 
except he was the legatee named in the will of William Layton, 2. 

14 John Layton 

15 Samuel Layton 

16 Andrew Layton 

17 Thomas Layton 

10 JOHN LAYTON, son of Andrew Layton, 4, must have stood in this relation, 
and have married a daughter of Safety Bowne, from the fact that the names of his oldest 
sons were Andrew and Safety Layton (after their respective grandfathers), and because 
the earmark of Andrew Layton of 1725-6 is next found recorded to an Andrew Layton 

1761, Mch. I, he made his will, which is recorded in Trenton, N. J.; proved May 13, 
1761, and refers to "my four eldest sons, viz.: Safety, Andrew, John and William, 
which implies that he had more, and the will of his son Andrew Layton proves that they 
were James and Samuel Layton.

19 Andrew Layton 

20 John Layton; probably it was he who had a license to marry Jane Johnston, 

of Freehold, Feb. 10, 1764. John Layton was then ot Shrewsbury, and 
made his mark, and Andrew Layton was his surety.

Joseph Cottrell married Mary Thickstone and they had Gershom Cottrell. 

26 Hester Layton; marriage license to John Cottrell Jan. 6, 1762, Gershom 

Cottrell, surety. His will on record alludes to "my two first wives children 
£5, viz.: James, Thomas, William, John, Rhody's children, David, Re- 
becca Ann, Catharine, Hester;" wife Mary to have the use of the estate and 
after her decease to "my youngest children," Job, Joseph, Sarah, Gershom, 
Seriah, John and Rachel.

he wrote his will June 10, 1784; proved Oct. 31, 1789- He married Elizabeth , 

who died Nov. 16, 1786. He possessed an ample estate, which, after providing liberally 
for his widow, he divided among his children naming his sons, John, Anthony and Job, 
executors. He alludes to the Hill Field, the Point Road, my Father's Spring and my 
Father's meadow, among other landmarks.

32 Lewis Layton 

22 Elizabeth Layton died prior to June 10, 1784, leaving issue. 

34 Mary Layton; marriage license to W" Smith Nov. 6, 1762. His will probably 

at Trenton, N. J., Jan. 4, 1794, proved Nov. 16, 1795, and if so they had 
issue: Daniel, Abraham, William, Elizabeth, Hannah and Mary Smith. 

35 Johannah Layton 

36 Sarah Layton married Ezekial Cooper by license Aug. 28, (Sept. 4), 1766. 

She made her will Mch. 2, 18 17, proved Mch. 20, 18 18. Issue: John, 
Charlotty (married Mr. Mathews), Benjamin, Samuel (who had Sarah 
Ann and Ezekial), William (who had Sarah) and Thomas Cooper (who had 
Sarah). 

14 JOHN LAYTON, son of Samuel Layton, 6, resided at Freehold, N. J., Dec. 6, 
1729, when his father conveyed him land. 

15 SAMUEL LAYTON, son of Samuel Layton, 6, resided at Freehold, N. J., and 
was grantee of lands May 30, 1733, from his brother Andrew Layton, bounded by John 
Layton, Stephen Aumack and William Layton. He also appears in other land trans- 
actions about this date. 

16 ANDREW LAYTON, son of Samuel Layton, 6, was of Freehold, N. J., Mch. 
5, 1729, when his father conveyed land to him bounded on the North by formerly James 
Stout, on the East by formerly James BoUen, on the West by formerly John Oakesson, 
on the South unsurveyed, to which the grantor had right by deed of Richard Osborn 
dated Oct. 8, 1712. 



LAYTON FAMILY OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 5 

1729, Mch. 5, his father again conveyed land to him deeded to grantor by Gawen 
Drummond Apr. 20, 1715. 

1729, Mch. 6, he, Andrew Lay ton, 16, conveyed this last mentioned tract of land to 
David Clayton, Jr., yeoman, of Freehold, which lay in Freehold near the head of Manas- 
quan River. 

He also appears in several other land transactions. 

17 THOMAS LAYTON, son of Samuel Layton, 6, as Thomas Layton, Jr., of 
Freehold, N. J., yeoman, with Lidea his wife, sold land on Manasquan River for £70, to 
Samuel Layton, of the same place, and which the grantor had title to by deed from 
Theophilus Bartow June 7, 1735. 

In 1742 (Nov. i), he apparently had moved to Shrewsbury, N. J., for he, then of 
that place, with Lydia his wife, conveyed to Christopher Romine, of Bethelehem, Hun- 
terdon County, yeoman, the remainder of the Bartow purchase of 1735, on Manasquan 
River. He appears in other land transactions in 1733 and 1734. 

18 SAFETY LAYTON, son of John Layton, 10, was a resident of Shrewsbury, 
N. J., when he had a marriage license with Christian Fleming, George Harrison, of 
Shrewsbury, surety. r . r u 

He was on the Poor Rate and Dog Tax of 1764; was called one of the four eldest 
sons and named as an executor in the will of his father Mch. i, 1761. 

From his name Safety, I am confident that he was a grandson of Safety Bowne who 
in turn was a grandson of Safety Grover. He was still residing in Shrewsbury when he 
made his will Mch. 20, 1790, proved May 8, 1790, in which he left his son James 10 
shillings and the remainder of his estate to his wife, daughter Rebecca and sons Joseph, 
Thomas and Safety, who were not yet twenty-one.

19 ANDREW LAYTON, son of John Layton, 10, took his grandfather, Andrew 
Layton's earmark, and it passed upon his decease, to his son Isaac. He was named by 
his father John Layton, second in the list of his four eldest sons in the will of 1 761 . 

Andrew Layton's will was written Apr. 22, 1800, proved July 16, 1800, and in it fie 
said he was far advanced in years, and bequeaths to the "heirs of my brothers James, 
Samuel and John Layton, $20., as a bar to any Pretensions," and left to Isaac Layton all 
his lands in Middletown, with reversion to the heirs of Nancy Sowden and Mary Layton, 
calling the latter "the youngest daughter of Margaret my housekeeper.' 

1761, Dec. 19, he had a license to marry Mary Wilkison, of Freehold, witfi John 
Layton, surety. He probably had no issue by her.

6 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

44 Isaac Layton probably died intestate, without issue, as the property of 

Andrew Layton, 19, was sold Dec. 23, 1852, as the real estate of Thomas 
and Isaac Layton, deceased, by the descendants of Isaac's two sisters. 

21 WILLIAM LAYTON, son of John Layton, 10, made his will Mch. 16, 1793, 
proved Feb. 26, 1807, wherem he mentioned his wife Catharine, his two youngest chil- 
dren, his sons John, Thomas, Walter and William not twenty-one, and daughter Catha- 
rine not of age; "all of my children, viz.: Aaron Layton, Mary Brittin, Tunice, John,

Catherine Van Pelt.

23^ JAMES LAYTON, son of John Layton, 10, was probably named after his

of John Nevill, Gent., of Perth Amboy, and Frances his wife, born Aug. 30, 1742, and 
died Apr. 9, 1818. 

John Layton was called carpenter in his marriage license and his descendants say he 
fought in the Battle of Monmouth in Washington's Army, and that he had a grant of six 
hundred and forty acres of land in Monmouth County, and that his ancestors were 
located "between Far Hills and Liberty Corner on the place known as the Henry xApgar

TALLMAN 

OF 

NEW JERSEY 

The Tallmans of New Jersey are represented by several branches of the name having 
a common ancestor in Peter Tallman, i,who settled in Newport and Portsmouth, Rhode 
Island, where he died in 1708. Concerning him and his immediate issue, J. 0. Austin 
supplies the following data: 

1655. He was a freeman. 

1657, June 9. Peter Taalman was on thelist of New Amsterdam burghers. 

1658, Dec. 18. He bought nine acres in Portsmouth, for 35 shillings an acre, and two 
days later added six acres more to the first purchase. 

1 66 1, May 21. Portsmouth. He was elected General Solicitor for the Colony of 
Rhode Island. 

1661-1662. He was a Commissioner. 

1662-1665. He was Deputy. 

1665. The Assembly granted him a divorce from his wife Ann.* 

1665, July 24. He entered into an ante-nuptial agreement with Joan Briggs, of 
Taunton, agreeing to give her the land that he had bought in 1658, as also a house to be 
hers and the heirs born of this marriage. He also gave her a bed and half the household 
goods, but if she died without issue, they were to revert to his eldest son, Peter Tallman, 
Jr., and if he died without issue, then to the eldest daughter of Peter Tallman, Sr., Mary, 
and her heirs. Further, he gave to Joan, absolutely, as a free gift of donation, "three 
good cows and a breeding mare." 

1674, June 7. He was imprisoned, but released at this date for having taken from 
the Indians lands by deed of gift in violation of the law of Massachusetts, he having 
surrendered the same. 

*The case of Peter Tallman was tried upon petition by the Assembly. Peter Tallman applied for a divorce from his wife on 
the ground of adultery. The woman brought before the Assembly admitted the charge. The petition was granted at once and then 
the criminal, upon her own confession, was arraigned for sentence. The penalty was a fine and whipping, and she was accordingly 
sentenced by the terms of the law, to pay the fine of ten pounds and to receive fifteen stripes, at Portsmouth, on the ensuing Mon- 
day, and on the following Wednesday another fifteen stripes, at Newport, and to be impnsoned till the sentence was fulfilled. 

Upon her petition for mercy, the Court again examined her as to whether she intended to return to her husband. This she 
refused to do upon any terms. Her petition was denied and she was remanded for punishment.'* 

**She escaped from prison and was gone two years. Upon her return to the Colony, in May, 1667, she was arrested and 
petitioned the Court for mitigation of sentence. The fine and one-half of the corporal punishment were remitted, and the remamder, 
fifteen stripes to be inflicted at Newport, was executed. Arnold's Hist, of Rhode Island, l^ol. I, p. 270.

19 DOCTOR STEPHEN TALLMAN, son of Dr. James Tallman, 10, was born 
at Portsmouth, Rhode Island, June 30, 1702, (Town Record), and died at his residence. 
Pumpkin Point, Shrewsbury, N. J., Aug. 24, 1774, aged 74 (tombstone). These dates 
are contradictory but are correctly quoted. He married Nov. 11, 1724, Mary, daughter 
of John and Sarah (Wilson) Potter, born Mch. 2, 1707. See also Austin s Genealogical 
Dictionary of Rhode Island. Dr. Stephen Tallman was the founder of a large family 
located in Shrewsbury, N. J. The Tallman blood ran riotously. Through what ante- 
cedent strains it was derived, I can only conjecture, but there is ample proof that its 
fiery character appeared in six generations, commencing with Dr. Stephen Tallman, 19. 
They were unmoral and irreligious; ugly tempered and defiant of law and social restraint. 
In these respects they came close to primitive man. They lived the life of landed squires, 
owning many slaves and much land, and possessed much ready wealth. They were well 
educated and contributed many members to the medical profession, and a goodly number 
of natural children to the world at large. During the Revolutionary War the family was 
split with many more of its members adhering to the Whig than to the Tory cause. In 
some instances it was brother against brother. 

In 1728, Dr. Stephen Tallman was residing in Portsmouth. 

In 173 1, he was called Esquire, in the same place. 

In 1733 and 1738, he was called yeoman, of Portsmouth. 

Dr. Stephen Tallman became involved in one of the largest real estate speculations 
ever initiated in the State of Rhode Island. This ambitious venture failed, and brought 
ruin to him and his associates. June 18, 1747, Joseph Scott, of Newport, merchant, 
deposed: that Dec. 7, 1743 there was a vendue of the lands of Stephen Tallman, of 
Portsmouth, by the Sheriff for a judgment of court, obtained by John Potter, of South 
Kingstown, in the County of King's, yeoman. Part of the estate was bought by Joseph 
Scott, aforesaid, for £4,990. This property had furthermore been, in part, mortgaged 
by Stephen Tallman and others, for large sums of money, at divers times, to the Colony 
of Rhode Island. The date and the cause of Dr. Stephen Tallman's departure from 
Rhode Island may largely be determined by this mishap, and it was doubtless at this 
unfortunate turn in his affairs that he sought a new home in Monmouth County, New 
Jersey, whither many of his kindred, and many Rhode Islanders, had long been settled. 
Even here trouble followed him, for Mch. 24, 1747, he was haled before the Court, sitting 
at Burlington, N. J., by John Potter, of South Kingston, King's County, R. I., as execu- 
tor of Sarah Potter, widow, late of the same place, to recover £351, £412 and £5381, 
evidently monies used in his recent Rhode Island land transactions. Supreme Court 
Files, Trenton, N. J. The widow, Sarah Potter, was doubtless his mother-in-law, and 



TALLMAN^ OF NEW JERSEY i^ 

John Potter his brother-in-law. From the size of the loans, Sarah Potter was, evidently 
a woman of wealth. It is regrettable that so little is known of the origin, growth and 
collapse of this business venture, which so strongly appealed to these thrifty people and 
which resulted so calamitously. 

With the remnants of his fortune Dr. Tallman acquired Mch. 23, 1741, from James 
and Kezia Tallman, one of the largest and most fertile estates in Monmouth County. It 
lay in Shrewsbury township, on an arm of the Shrewsbury River, and ultimately amounted 
to seven hundred acres and its devious and indented shores presented about three miles 
of water front. Here, upon a knoll whose shores sloped to the water, and which was 
commonly called Pumpkin Point, he settled in Sally Reap's primitive house,* which he 
shortly, (in 1741), converted into a kitchen, and attached it to the fine and commodious 
residence he erected on this site. The estate passed from his descendants, m 1837, to 
the Newbolds, then to the Shermans, and finally, to a land syndicate, for $100,000., it is 
stated, consisting of William Conover (Black Bill), Stacy Conover and others, who 
plotted the land, and who still own the property and run the old house as the Potapeck 

(Port-au-Peck) Hotel. j- , r u- •, u- j u o- 

Upon this estate Dr. Stephen Tallman lived in prodigal fashion until his death. His 
plantation was worked by his negroes under his supervision and he practiced medicine. 
He established his sons upon large farms, and they seemingly, had the funds in their 
possession to pay him for the same, especially so in the instance of his son James, to 
whom he conveyed the Potapeck property, Apr. 2, 1774, only a few months preceding his 
death, for the large sum of £3700. It is because of this disposition of his estate during his 
lifetime that he probably found it unnecessary to make a will. His daughters, it is 
traditional, received large amounts in cash. Some of his family silver marked s. Im. 
(Stephen and Mary Tallman), is now in my {John E. Stillwell, 191 5), possession. His 
professional mantle fell upon his two sons, Joseph and Christopher Tallma^, who, with 
four descendants, through his daughter, Martha Tallman, wife of Col. Thomas Sea- 
brook, and a father. Dr. James Tallman, and an uncle Dr. Peter Tallman, make a total 
contribution to the healing profession of no less than nine of Tallman blood in six 
generations.

(C^my i/a// Papers). 



An estate supposedly belonging to the Tallmans, was vigorously sought, for a time, 
by Samuel Tallman, assisted by his granddaughter's husband Harry C. Newel, of Long 
Branch, N. J. They interviewed John R. Livingston, a former slave, of whom more 
anon, copied many records, employed lawyers, addressed the Bank of England, the 
British Consul, in New York, and the British Minister in Washington, but without avail. 
They were inspired to this activity by a chain of circumstances which I briefly enumerate. 

Samuel Tallman remembered that his uncle Humphrey Williams told him that some 
day he would inherit great wealth through the wife of Dr. Stephen Tallman, and retained 
a vague recollection that her name was Mary Morgan, though he may have received the 
impression of her name from other sources: further, that at various times men came to 
Monmouth County in search of information concerning the Tallman family, perhaps 
concerning Mary, the wife of Dr. Stephen Tallman. This first visit was about 1866. 
About 1870, one, David McAlpine, came to Monmouth County and stated that he was 



TALLMAN OF NEW JERSEY 17 

employed by Peter Tallman,* formerly of Canada, to hunt for an English estate and 
which his researches led him to believe belonged to the heirs of Dr. Stephen Tallman and 
not to the heirs of Peter Tallman, 

It was an easy thing to inflame the minds of many members of the Tallman family, 
and he entertained them with stories of a very wealthy ancestor, a herdsman, m England, 
by the name of Morgan, or by another statement that this ancestor was an owner of 
immense coal mines in Wales, and dying a bachelor, had left his vast property to two 
sisters, one Elizabeth, who married and settled in the State of Pennsylvania, for whose 
heirs he had already secured an immense sum, and the other, Mary Morgan, the wife of 
Dr. Stephen Tallman, whose descendants he had now joyfully located. The English or 
Welsh properties had been sold and the money placed in chancery, where it was drawing 
interest to the amount of one million dollars a year. I have little doubt that David 
McAlpine was a shark working both ends of the line, the descendants oi Peter 1 allman, 
in Canada, and the descendants of Dr. Stephen Tallman in Monniouth County. 

There was much uncertainty left in the minds of all, when David McAlpine left for 
his home at Fonthill, Pelham Township, Canada, West, for they took no memoranda of 
the names and places he supplied them. One person claimed that Mary Morgan s sister 
settled in Connecticut, and that one Morgan, an assistant at the tollgate, called Lame 
Morgan, came from that state to Eatontown, N. J., but left and returned to the home of 
his Connecticut relatives. Another account states that Ethan Allen and his brother 
Charles Allen, descendants of Stephen Tallman, received private information from Mr. 
McAlpine, bought him off and obtained the money in chancery. Occasionally letters 
came from McAlpine or his wife, and then ceased. Members of the famUy became sus- 
picious of each other, employed various lawyers and finally the whole effort fizzled out 
for want ofexact data and connecting links. . , • • j .u c 

John R. Livingston, the negro previously mentioned as interviewed, was the son of 
John Livingston, a slave of Barnes Smock, of Middletown, and had married Rosanna 
Williams, a wench of Dr. Stephen Tallman of Pumpkin Point. They lived with their 
respective masters and had born to them (slaves of Dr. Tallman), a daughter Rosanna 
Livingston, and a son, the aforementioned John R. Livingston, who was reputed to have 
reached the age of one hundred and fifteen years, in 1878, when he was residing at 
Branchport, N J. This would make his birth date, if his age is accurately given the 
year 1763, and his age at the time of Dr. Stephen Tallman's death eleven years. I am 
precise in giving these dates as I have seen them recorded by certain membe s of Mr 
Samuel Tallman's family, for I doubt much whether a youth of ^le^" ^ bUck and 
uneducated, could recite from recollection, accurately, many stories concerning Dr. 1 all- 
man, his wife and children, without drawing upon a very lively 'magmation 

When Livingston was interviewed in 1878, it was stated that he was in the held 
ploughing, a remarkable fact when you consider his great age which ^fd^jPf ^"behe^e 
that his age was exaggerated, and if so, his years, at the time he ived with Dr. 1 allman 
were n ceSarily profortiona'tely less. Further, .it must be.reca led that any testimony 
from the ignorant and prejudiced slave race, with its persistent animosity towards its 
severe masfers, would hardly contribute truthful and -embellished statements agains 
their former oppressors. However, froni other sources in a general way it has come 
down that the Tallmans were a fair complexioned and ugly-tempered race and doubtles^^ 
Livingston repeated that which he had heard, rather than that which he had seen l^rom

his statements it would appear that Dr. Stephen Tallman handled his slaves severely 
and even cruelly. They were likely to be whipped if he were angered, and if this failed 
to curtail their petty rebellion, he would sit them with bare pelts on heated bricks, and 
when aged, sick and bedridden himself, he would command them to stand by his bed, 
and with his cane terminating in a spear point, would prick them. Little serious damage 
was likely to be done, as a slave was a too valuable commodity to hazard his well being or 
life. 

Dr. Tallman practiced medicine and farming and his fame was a practitioner was 
extensive, and patients came from far and near. 

He was confined to his bed about two months, was attended by his sons the two 
doctors, and finally succumbed to gout and the infirmities of age. He died in the same 
room, on the first floor, that his wife had occupied with him throughout their married 
life and in which she too had died. 

After three days his remains were interred, without funeral services of any kind, on 
his own farm, in what was and still is called the Potapeck, Pumpkin Point and Tallman 
burying-ground. The attendance was very great as he was esteemed in the community. 

It is said that he left a will which was read by its makers and holders. Dr. John 
Johnson, of Eatontown, and Dr. Samuel Tenbroeck, of Shrewsbury, on the return of the 
family to the homestead. 

Further, upon the recollection of John R. Livingston, he gave to each of his sons, 
Stephen, Dr. Christopher, John, Samuel, James and Dr. Joseph, the farms they were 
residing upon, and to the latter likewise his medical belongings. To his daughter 
Martha, about £ioo, and to his daughter Sarah, between £ioo and £200, discriminating 
against the former daughter as she was the wife of a very rich man. Major Thomas 
Seabrook. 

In appearance Dr. Stephen Tallman was of medium height and strongly built. He 
had a clean shaven face and wore his hair powdered white and drawn back into a queue. 
He was generally considered a fine looking man. His wife, Mary Tallman, was good- 
looking, though not a handsome woman. She was ot medium size, large boned, heavily 
built and possessed a very fair complexion. She was always very tender and good to her 
family. She was an eccentric woman, with an easily provoked, high temper and was 
considered by her slaves, a witch. Rosanna Livingston, a household slave, seemed to 
have come in for a share of her ill will, for on one occasion when she was setting the dinner 
table, her mistress threw a handful of knives and forks at her head, with such precision 
that Rosanna looked as if she were a female St. Sebastian, and the irate old lady held her 
to her work notwithstanding her suffering. This scene had a tragic ending, for the 
family were hardly seated at the dinner table, when Mrs. Tallman was stricken with 
apoplexy. She was carried to her bedroom, remained speechless and paralyzed and was 
attended by her husband for nine days, when she died. 

The remains lay at her residence for two days and the attendance at the funeral was 
large. The customary eight pallbearers, four bearing the remains one-halt the way, and 
four the remaining portion of the way, carried the corpse, which was interred in the 
adjacent Tallman plot. Neither Dr. Tallman nor his wife Mary, were apparently 
members of any church, though they occasionally attended service at Shrewsbury. 

Mary Tallman, the wife of Dr. Stephen Tallman, was living as late as 1774, when, 
with her husband, she joined in making the conveyance to her son James, Apr. 2, of that 
year; and if the assertion is correct that she died before her husband, it must have been 
between this date, Apr. 2, and Aug. 24, 1774, when her husband Dr. Stephen Tallman, 



TALLMAN OF NEW JERSEY 19 

died. That she predeceased her husband rests entirely upon the doubtful testimony of 
John R. Livingston. That she died close to the time of her husband's death is likely, as 
no tombstone marks her burial place, which is a matter for comment and not easily 
understood. 

Personally I haven't an atom of faith in the Mary Morgan tradition and believe that Dr. 
Stephen Tallman married but once and that the lady was Mary Potter, of Rhode Island. 

Only three of the children of Stephen Tallman are supplied with birth dates, and it 
is doubtful whether the issue is chronologically arranged.

36 JOB TALLMAN, supposed son of John Tallman, 12, if the name assigned to 
him be correct, was probably the son his wife was carrying, when John Tallman 's will 
was made, in 1707, and was nearly two years of age when his father died in 1709. 

In the migration of John Tallman's (12) children to Burlington County, N. J., he 
probably joined, for, in 1727, Job Tallman's land was named as on one of the boundaries 
of Benjamin Tallman's purchase of lands in Mansfield. 

It was probably he who had a license to marry dated Feb. 25, 1736, Sarah, daughter 
of Benjamin Scattergood.

late Job Tallman, of Mansfield. John Tallman, of Long Island, conveyed Dec. 2, 1727, 
to Job Tallman, then of Long Island, part of the five hundred acre Underbill tract, and 
Joseph Wharton and Job Tallman, in 1732, bought land jointly from Mary Andrews, 
which they divided Mch. 16, 1747. Job Tallman conveyed his interest by will, Jan. 6,

and two acres of meadow, about equal to five acres, which was conveyed to the said 
Stephen Tallman Apr. 3, 1772, by a deed from his father Dr. Stephen Tallman, deceased, 
for the sum of £800, who claimed it by deed of Joseph Stillwell and Edward Taylor, 
executors of Mary Seabrook, June 6, 1760. 

He died, unmarried, about 1790. His burial services were conducted by the Rev. 
John WoodhuU, the Presbyterian minister, of Freehold and Shrewsbury, at his house and 
at the grave in the Tallman plot. There were no hearses m those days and by reason of 
the long distance, his remains were carried in an open farm wagon, with four carriers at 
the house and four at the grave. Like all funerals about this period, his was largely 
attended and business in the community for many miles about suspended. 

Leaving no will his estate was administered by James Tallman and Thomas Sea- 
brook, with a bond of £1000, dated June 21, 1790. • , J , • 

The inventory of his personal estate amount to £1,500, and included six negroes. 

At the time administration was granted, the following representatives of Stephen 
Tallman renounced, viz.: Rachel Tallman, Martha Seabrook, Polly Williams, Patty 
Tallman and Mary Tallman, and in 179 1, the Commissioners divided his lands among:

Stephen Tallman had a natural daughter Ann (Nancy) Tallman, who was taken 
care of by her father until she married Mathias Wood,* an Englishman, who came to 
America at the time of the American Revolution and who served in the American Army 
until the close of the war. They resided at Mechanicsville, N. J., and were buried in the 

cemetery of that place. . 1 c u -r n 

From the testimony of John R. Livingston, it would appear that Stephen lallman 
was a very "queer" man and severe with his slaves, not infrequently having them 
whipped till their backs were laid open and the blood ran freely. He was morose and 
exclusive It is further said of him that he saw from his room window a woman crossing 
his orchard, on her way to church, who plucked apples from his heavily laden trees, 
rather than to lift those equally good, from the ground, which angered him to such a 
degree that he raised his gun, and with expert aim, cut a limb squarely off above her head. 
He was indicted by the Monmouth Grand Jury for various offences, before whom 
he was accused as an "ill designing and disorderly person and ot a wicked & malicious 
mind," and for having, on the 4"^ day of September, 1784, killed and destroyed a mare

Dr. Christopher Tallman's Tory proclivities apparently made him unpopular and 
unsafe in Shrewsbury, for being sick and apprehensive of death, he made a will dated 
Shrewsbury, September 19, 1772, to which he appended a codicil August 16, 1778, when 
he speaks of himself as still sick, late of Shrewsbury, but now of the "narrows on Long 
Island." His illness was apparently not vital for he lived twelve years thereafter. 

He studied medicine with his father who established him on a farm at Tinton Falls, 
N. J., where he practiced medicine and farming. His brother Dr. Joseph Tallman suc- 
ceeded to the father's practice at the homestead and the brothers became friendly rivals 
in the same field. On one occasion Dr. Joe extracted a tooth, which was followed by 
bleeding to a state of collapse, and in great fright he sent two slaves ahorse to his brother 
Dr. Christopher, who, from the excited blacks got the tale and laconically replied, "tell 
the man who pulled it to stop it." More humane feelings overcame him, however, and 
he arrived with the messengers, successfully applied a remedy taken from Dr. Joe's own 
medicine chest, put it in his pocket, and despite Dr. Joe's protests, carried it away with- 
out revealing its nature.

martial, held in New York, June, 1782. 

Wardell was in a state of everlasting indulgence and persistent repentance. While 
under the effects of liquor he broke his leg and no sooner cured than he repeated the 
drink and the accident, and these again once more. Three breaks were too many for 
him and he succumbed to his habits and mishaps, leaving his widow, who successfully 
managed her farm till old age and malignant disease of the throat, after much suffering, 
ended her life. Her funeral services at the house and the grave were conducted by the 
Rev. Samuel Budd, a Methodist minister, of Long Branch, and her remains were in- 
terred by the side of her husband in the Tallman burying-ground. The date of her 
demise is not known, but Aug. 9, 1800, administration on her estate was granted to 
William Sickles and Mathias Wood. 

1791, June 21. John Wardell, boatman, of Shrewsbury, conveyed to Hannah But-

services were conducted at his own house and grave by the Rev. John Woodhull. He 
was interred in the Tallman plot at Pumpkin Point.

Corlies and Joseph Parker, for £317. 

1790, Mch. 6. John Tallman, of Shrewsbury, N. J., sick, etc., made his will; proved 
June 21, 1790, in which he appointed Stephen Tallman his executor, and ordered his 
negro Tone to be freed after four years; gave £110 to Elias, the firstborn son of Mary 
Croxon; gave £100 to Lydia, the firstborn daughter of Mary Croxon; to Stephen Tail- 
man his brother, the residue of his estate. He signed his name to the will. 

His executor, Stephen Tallman, having died, James Tallman and Thomas Sea- 
brook qualified as administrators, with bond of £1,000, on June 21, 1790. 

The inventory of his personal estate amounted to £600, and included a half a dozen 
silver tea spoons valued at £1-10-0. 

43 SAMUEL TALLMAN, son of Dr. Stephen Tallman, 19, was a farmer and 
resided at Tinton Falls, N. J. He married Rachel, daughter of David and Meribah 
(Herbert) Curtis, of Squan, N. J., by license dated June 26, 1765. His death occurred 
during the winter of 1788, as December 8th, of that year, administration was granted to 
Rachel Tallman and James Tallman, both of Shrewsbury, with a bond of £1,000, upon 
his estate. Both his widow, Rachel Tallman, and James Tallman, the administrators, 
signed, as well as Samuel Tallman, a witness. His personal estate, inventoried in 1789, 
amounted to £370-1-0, and a second appraisal taken the same year, amounted to 
£560-19-08. His funeral services were conducted by the Rev. John Woodhull, and he 
was interred in the Tallman burying-ground. 

He was a man of integrity, agreeable manners and of domestic virtues, but, like the 
rest of the Tallmans, he could swear beyond the average amount. 

He was an industrious worker and kept his slaves always busy. He was wont to 
visit his father-in-law, going on horse back through the swamp, where at one particular 
spot, climbing a tree, he could observe his slaves at work and to their surprise pick out 
the laggards on his return. This worked well until his overseer, one Andrew McCard, 
noticing a black speck in a tree not far from where the negroes were at work, discovered 
its nature and by careful scouting he cautiously removed the neighing mare and her foal 
which had guided him to the spot, and rode her home. Upon Tallman's descent, minus 
a horse which he supposed had broken loose, he trudged home with his coat on his arm, 
foot-sore and weary. To his wife's query as to his condition he answered, "I got oflF my 
horse in the swamp for something and she got away from me and ran off." When he 
subsequently knew the facts he greatly enjoyed the joke at his own expense. 

Samuel Tallman, as described by John R. Livingston, was a remarkably handsome 
man, of slender but good figure, and a noticeably fine complexion. He was never robust, 
and died, somewhat suddenly, with hasty consumption. His wife, Rachel Tallman, was

45 JAMES TALLMAN, son of Dr. Stephen Tallman, 19, died Apr. 5 [25?], 1827, 
in the eighty-third year of his age, as appears upon his tombstone at Pumpkin Point, 
hence he was born in the year 1744-5, and could not possibly have been the son born to 
Dr. Stephen and Mary Tallman, Aug. n, 1725, at Portsmouth R. I. The natural 
inference therefore is that the first son, James, lived quite a number of years perhaps 
fifteen to twenty years, and dying, his father called the next son born to him thereafter, 

1774, Apr. 2. Dr. Stephen and Mary Tallman, for £3,700, conveyed to their son 
James Tallman lands at Potapeck, deeded to James Tallman deceased, by William 
Marsh, Mch. i, 1731, and also by deed of Nicholas Chambers to James Tallman, Dec 17,

lash whip, for use on man and beast, and possessed of great strength. When too de- 
crepit to move, he substituted for it a spear, made to hurl at his negroes. Among them 
was Tubs, Rose and Jack, the last of whom subsequently bought his freedom. He died 
very aged and left a son, who was recently living in Long Branch, N. J. As opposed to 
this tradition about Jack, is the will of his master, wherein he is set free two weeks after 

his decease. ... 

While a strict master, James Tallman was kmd to his slaves; when in anger, an 
accomplished swearer; destitute of religion, yet accustomed to read his Bible, and on 
Sundays ordered his slaves to church to catechise them on the text upon their return. 

James Tallman, like the other members of his father's family, bought and sold real 
estate in his vicinity freely, but there is nothing of interest in these transactions worth 
recording. ... I 

1762, Nov. 25. The Monmouth County Grand Jury mdicted him, as "he did procure M 

and had a quantity of provisions, to wit. Pork, with intention to traitorously convey the % 

same to the subjects and troops of the King of Great Britain, and did send the same." 
The outcome of the indictment is not noted, and it was probably quashed.

James Tallman had a natural son by Deborah Parker, to whom he was engaged to 
be married when a youth of seventeen. Among his gifts to her was a pair of gloves 
bought for the prospective marriage. She died about this time and he retained the 
gloves until his death, when he requested that they should be placed upon his breast 
when he was in his coffin, which was done. The boy was brought up by his grandfather 
Parker and was a wild specimen and died in early manhood in New York City. 

Will of James Tallman, of Shrewsbury, written Feb. 24, 1827; proved Apr. 25, 1827. 

Therein he states that two weeks after his decease, he wishes his two colored men, Jack and Elias 
Ryel,* freed, and to the latter he also gave ^175., in cash. To his housekeeper, Hannah Pawley or Dia- 
mond, he gave his large carpet and a yearling heifer, provided she lived with him; to James, son of William 
Tallman, Jr., he gave his silver tankard; to William Tallman, Jr., son of William Tallman, tailor, he gave

^100., to Sarah ^140., and to Lydia, wife of John White, ?i40.; to Elizabeth, daughter of George and Meri-

executors to sell all of his real estate, "except the graveyard on the farm I now live on with a quarter of an 
acre more added to it, and to stipulate with the purchaser to keep the fence up in good order around the 
said graveyard." To John, son of Abraham Laign, he gave his wearing apparel and silver buckels, and to 
Stephen Tallman, the son of his brother Joseph Tallman, deceased, he gave the residue of his estate. Exec- 
utors: William Brinley, Esq., and Tylee Williams. The inventory of his personal estate amounted, ap-

3 OLIVER TALLMAN, son of Jeremiah Tallman, i, was born at Portsmouth, 
R. I., June 15, 1737. He resided at Long Branch, Monmouth County, N. J., prior to 
the Revolutionary War, where he owned a considerable estate. This he forfeited by 
becoming a Royalist. During the Battle of Monmouth, he fought on the British side, 
while his son, William fought under Washington. At the end of the war his estates were 
confiscated and sold, and he, accompanied with two of his sons, Peter and Daniel, with- 
drew to Canada, on the North shore of Lake Ontario, near St. Catharines, where lands 
were ceded to him for his loyalty to the Crown. 

Apparently the confiscated lands did not always find ready purchasers for it was 
not until Mch. 29, 1799, that the plantations of Christopher and Oliver Tallman, at 
Tinton Falls, N. J., were sold. 

In 1771 and 1773, Oliver Tallman was taxed in Shrewsbury, N. J. 

His stay in Canada must have been short because he died in Shrewsbury, in 1788, 
leaving a will written Nov. 28, 1787; proved Jan. 11, 1788, wherein he called himself of 
Shrewsbury and spelled his name Oliver Talman, and mentioned: 

son Daniel Talman; daughter Jemima; son William Talman; daughter Molly Talman; daughter 
Hannah; brother Jeames' land, and disposed of several negroes. He signed his name to the will. Executor: 
George Howland. Joseph Tallman, a witness. The executor renounced and William Tallman qualified

Dear Madam: — t u 1 l 

Yours of 1 1"" which reached me here this evening was rather a surprise. I would say that you have 
been entirely misinformed and the tone of your letter is altogether unwarranted. The Tallman burying 
ground at Port au Peck has not been sold and not one penny has been paid to me or to any body else 
except to Mr. Mount the undertaker at Red Bank for carefully removing the remains and reinternng them 
at Fairview Cemetery near Middletown, where the stones have been fully restored. The five (5) living 
heirs of my father, together with Mr. S. T. Bradford, the eldest son of the Bradford family have rehn-

quished their rights in the piece of ground but that does not affect the rights of anyone else that may have 

The facts are that the hurrying ground was in a disgraceful condition and myself and brothers had 
no money to fix it up and care for it. The fences were broken down, cattle and horses roamed through 
it at will, the stones were overturned and that of my mother broken in twenty pieces. The ground was 
all overgrown with weeds and briers and young trees. In short it was heartrending to visit it. At Fair- 
view everything will be looked after and cared for forever. Since the burial of James Tallman about 75 
years ago, no one has been buried there but my own family's immediate predecessors, viz., my grand- 
father, wife, sister, and children & my father, wife, sister and children — the last being my father in 1882. 
Not one of us now lives in Monmouth Co. and are not likely to again. Not one of us has or ever had the 
slightest desire to be buried at Port au Peck. 

As my grandfather Stephen S. Tallman was the sole heir to James Tallnian, a bachelor, who estab- 
lished the burying ground, and nvy father Geo. D. Tallman, Sr., was the sole heir to s"* Stephen and we five 
children were the sole heirs to s** Geo. D., and as further, no one but the immediate members of our family 
ever buried there or took the slightest interest in the plot, we considered we had a right to remove the 
remains and place them where they could be properly cared for as well as resign what rights we had to the 
plot, without in any way affecting any body elses rights if any existed. 

Yours 

G. D. Tallman 

P.S. As long as I lived in Shrewsbury & had a little means I looked after the plot but later after 
losing everything I had in the world & moving away I simply was unable to continue, hence the ruin of 
the ground. I would be glad if you showed this letter to the people who have been talking so unkindly 
about me.

Among those who very early followed the original Patentees and Associates, in the 
settlement of Middletown, was Edward Taylor, whose name immediately proclaims him 
an Englishman. His parentage, whatever may have been claimed to the contrary, is 
yet unknown, as likewise his English home. 

His descendant, the late Asher Taylor, Esq., was a most industrious, conscientious 
and well-informed antiquary and genealogist, and perhaps, the pioneer in this field in 
Monmouth County. Boasting, as he did, that he descended from the best of Mon- 
mouth stock, it is not surprising that he rescued many interesting facts concerning his 
progenitors. In tracing out his immediate family, he claimed that Edward Taylor, the 
founder ot the American family, was the son of John, and the brother of Matthew Taylor, 
a New Jersey Proprietor. That he, Edward Taylor, through this ancestor, John Taylor, 
was the direct descendant of Baron Taillefer, a follower of William, the Conqueror, who 
died on the battle-field of Hastings, 1066, and that between the said John Taylor, his 
supposed father, and the Baron Taillefer, there were eight generadons. 

The claim to this ancient pedigree rests upon the fact that Matthew Taylor, who 
died in New York, in 1688, was thought to be the descendant of this family, and supposed 
to be the brother of Edward Taylor, who settled in Middletown. It is not disputed that 
Matthew Taylor was of the family above alluded to, but it is impossible to find any 
evidence that he was in any way related to Edward Taylor, of Middletown. The worthy 
Asher Taylor cites, in evidence of the kinship of these parties, a will recorded, in New 
York, that of Matthew Taylor, dated Feb. 20, 1687/8. He claims that after appropri- 
adng ten guineas to buy his friend Manning a mourning ring, he, Matthew Taylor, wills 
the residue of his property to his brother, Edward, residing in London, with reversion to 
Edward's son George. As a matter of fact, the will states, that, after appropriating 
twenty shillings for Capt. Manning to buy a mourning ring, and the sum of £20 for his 
two executors, he leaves the residue of his property to his loving brother Samuel Taylor, 
residing in L ondon, with reversion to Samuel's son George. 

•Many years ago, during the last decade of his life, Asher Taylor, No. 185 of this pedigree, allowed me to copy his notes on 
the Taylor family. These constitute a large portion of this Taylor genealogy, subjected to corrections, additions and rearrange- 
ment. Mr. Hiram E. Deats likewise published this Asher Taylor genealogy, with memoranda of the Taylor intermarriages, in his 
magazine, The Jerseyman, Vol. VIII, No. /, and succeeding numbers.

44 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

How this error could have occurred it is idle to speculate, and while it destroys the 
claim to an English pedigree, it still leaves the American family a record rich in fullness, 
historic interest, and one of which they may well be proud. 

If any further evidence is wanting that it was a mistake to assign Edward Taylor 
as the heir of Matthew, and that it was following Matthew's decease, and in the year 
1692 that he came to America, it may be found, in the old Town Book, of Middletown, 
which records his, (Edward's), cattle-mark, in 1684, and in the Book of Land Patents, 
at Perth Amboy, in which are recorded grants, Jan, 13, 1692, of two tracts of land of one 
hundred acres, in Middletown; another tract of one hundred acres, Dec. 28, 1685; 
another tract of one hundred and sixty acres, July 27, 1686, in Middletown; and in 1687, 
of still another tract of one hundred and fifty acres. 

It also follows that most of his children were born here, and not in the mother 
country. Of the life of Edward Taylor, the First, Httle if anything is known. He died 
in the year 1710, after having accumulated a large estate, principally in lands, which 
were divided among his children. They were started in life prosperously, and each and 
all improved his condition, so that the family at once became prominent and opulent. 
The few writings of the first comer, that are in existence, prove that he was intelligent 
and educated, and that he belonged to the highest class that migrated to our shores in 
the early days of its colonization.

Shrewsbury township, but later moved to Freehold. 

Among the items, mentioned in his will, is a silver cup, bequeathed to his son, 
Edward Taylor, 8, which was not unlikely brought from Old England, and which, by an 
unlucky thought, was melted down by the legatee's wife into a more modern shape. As 
such, it is still in the family descending to the Edward Taylor's in succession.

old silver marked with their joint initials gTh. 

In 1710, he was the administrator of his father's estate, and succeeded to the home- 
stead at Garret's Hill, in Middletown, N. J. 

1724. George Taylor sued Obadiah Stillwell for a debt of £17-1 1-4. 

Freehold Court Records. 

In 1729, he erected, at Garret's Hill, a dwelling of then uncommon size, called the 
Mansion House, and the same season built the Old Taylor House, now standing on the 
highway, in the village of Middletown, just East of Christ Church, and a similar, but 
larger one, long known as the "Old Tavern," in the front of the residence and by the side 
of the lane extending from the highway up to the house of Charles I. Hendrickson, Esq., 
deceased, in Middletown. 

From 1727 to 1739/40, he kept a tavern and was a merchant, probably conducting 
his business in the last above mentioned building. 

1744, Apr. 5. George Taylor kept a tavern and sold liquor to James Bowne. 

George Taylor signed his name Taylor, Talor and Talar; the last, perhaps, being 
the most common. 

It is not unlikely that he remained in the "Old Tavern" until his death m 1758; he 
was certainly there as late as 1746.

Edward Taylor, commonly called "Edward Taylor, Esq.," was an active, intelli- 
gent man, possessed of a liberal education. 

In 1768, 1772 and 1774, he was a Member of the Assembly. 

At the commencement of the Revolution, he was among those active in raising 
supplies to aid the Boston people in their effort to avoid taxation without representation. 
This activity gained him the animosity of his Tory neighbors, who tried to have him 
impeached and his property confiscated. For prudential reasons, he then became less 
active, but was arrested several times and had great difficulty in keeping out of trouble. 



TAYLOR OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 51 

first from one party, then the other. He succeeded in navigating through the storm 
and was eventually able to transmit his large estate to his descendants. 

Among other pieces of real estate Edward Taylor owned was 1/320 of the Province 
of East New Jersey, which was a Proprietary right bought by him, in 1749, of John 
Lippit, who succeeded to it, as heir of his mother, Sarah, daughter of John Throck- 
morton, who was entitled to ^ of her father's i/io of 1/48 of the said province; and from 
Thomas Stillwell, Jr., son of Alice, daughter of John Throckmorton and sister of Sarah 
Lippit, his like share, heired from his mother, which gave Edward Taylor ^ of i/io of 
1/48, or 1/320 part of the whole province. 

Edward Taylor resided in the house erected by his father, in 1729, which still 
stands on the highway of Middletown, East of Christ Church. 

In 1758, upon the death of his father, he succeeded him in the "Old Tavern," where 
he likewise kept store and tavern. He also built and ran the mill, since known as 
"Arrowsmith's mill," and his business interests became varied and extensive.

Taylor; only daughter, Ellinor Lyell, and her children Mary, Fenwick and John Lyell.

27 JOHN TAYLOR, son of George Taylor, 4, was born in 1715 or 1716, and died, 
at Perth Amboy, N. J., Nov. 23, 1798. He married Phebe, sister and heiress of Gen. 
Nathaniel Heard, of New Jersey. She died, July 10, 1791, aged about eighty-three 
years, and was buried in the Lippit Burying-ground. 

John Taylor was commonly known as "Squire Taylor," to distinguish him from 
other members of the family. 

He owned a farm of some two hundred acres which he sold before the Revolutionary 
War, reserving about a dozen acres, upon which, in 1752, he erected a large, handsome 
house, at the head of the Main Street, in Middletown, at the commencement of the Deep 
Cut, which was denominated by his neighbors as "Taylor's Folly." 

In 1782, this house was bought by George Crawford, Esq., from whom it passed to 
the Beekmans, and recently, December, 1891, was destroyed by fire. It seemingly 
would have stood for centuries. Its entire frame was of oak, and it showed no signs of 
wear. General Clinton was a frequent visitor there, during the Revolution, and Dr. 
Bainbridge, father of Commodore Bainbridge, there wooed and won his future wife. 

John Taylor was a Sheriff, of Monmouth County, for many years, as also one of the 
Judges of the Court of Common Pleas, in Monmouth County, in 1761, and doubtless at 
other times. 

Upon the breaking out of the Revolution, like many office holders, he became a 
persistent Loyalist, and was appointed, by Lord Howe, on his arrival in this country, to 
offer terms of reconciliation, "His Majesty's Lord High Commissioner, of New Jersey," 
in consequence of which, he was hunted by the Whigs. His property, not confiscated, 
but applied to public use, was paid for in Continental money, which depreciated, until

British Government. 

Capt. Edward Taylor, who was thirty years of age, when Squire Taylor died, and 
knew all about him, told Asher Taylor, Esq., that his claim, for losses, amounted to 
£12,000, far in excess of the actual figures, but nevertheless allowed by the British 
government, which no doubt influenced Burke to say that he was a man of large estates 
and had made great sacrifices in the Revolutionary War for the Royal cause, and which, 
Asher Taylor, Esq., commenting upon, with tremendous Whig fervor, says, "was greatly 
exaggerated and pure gammon." 

Warrant to Asher Holmes, Esq% for the apprehension of Jno. Taylor, Esq', of

In 1773, Colonel Taylor apparently resided on the old grandfather farm of John 
Taylor, but during the Revolutionary War, he resided in the village of Middletown, in 
the house next East of Christ Church, built by his grandfather, in 1729, and now, in 
1907, the residence of his great-grandson, Henry Taylor, Esq. 

In early life he was an officer in the Militia. On the breaking out of the Revolution, 
he was in the Continental service, commanding a battalion of detached militia; he refused 
to take the Oath of Allegiance, and in July, 1776, threw up his commission and entered

TAYLOR OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 57 

where he continued to reside until his death. This property continued, by regular 
descent, in the occupancy of his children, until 1854, when it passed to his grand-daugh- 
ter, Mary H. Taylor, wife of Joseph D. Taylor, who built a fine mansion near the old 
residence. Both houses are yet, 1907, standing. The older, occupied by Mrs. Taylor's 
farmer, contains some fine specimens of hand carved wood, the mantel, in the tap room 
perhaps being the most noteworthy. This farm was once part of the estate of Squire 
John Taylor, 27, who built the old house on it. He sold it to Barnardus Rider, of Long 
Island, reserving on the Southwest corner, a building site of fourteen acres. 

In 1 771, Rider conveyed the lands to Edward Taylor, 26, whose son. Col. George 
Taylor, resided on it in 1773. As conveyed to Edward Taylor, the farm was laid at two 
hundred and ten acres. 

John Taylor, 79, was out several times in the provincial forces, for local duty, in the 
early part of the Revolutionary War.

175 GENERAL JOSEPH PRINGLE TAYLOR, son of William Taylor, 84, 
was born in 1796. His father, at the time of his death, at Perth Amboy, in 1806, ex- 
pressed the desire that his children should remain in this country, and be reared as 
American citizens, the trouble being then over between England and this country, but 
his mother deemed it best to take her sons to England, where, through the influence of 
her family, Joseph Pringle Taylor received an Ensign's commission in the English Army. 

In 181 1, at the tender age of fifteen, he was tossed into a saddle and sent to the East 
Indies, with the 22nd Light Dragoons, to take his luck.

285 ASHER TAYLOR, son of Joseph Taylor, 154, was born, Nov. 3, 1800, in the

This estimable man was the pioneer genealogist, I believe, of Monmouth County. 
His incursions into family history provoked amusement, wonderment and ridicule, but 
he was steadfast in his pursuit, with the result of accumulating much data. Nothing 
pleased him more than to meet a kindred spirit and discuss his hobby, especially in his 
declining years, saddened by the loss of members of his family. His life, though a 
happy one was a tempestuous one. He started, when less than thirteen years of age, 
in the store of his uncle, Edward Taylor, in New York City, with whom he became a 
partner, in 1830, and so continued until 1840. Henceforth he became prominent in fire 
insurance matters, becoming the president of several such organizations, which became 
insolvent, by disastrous fires. At the time of his death, Asher Taylor was Vice-President 
of the Exchange Fire Insurance Company, of New York City. He resided at various 
times in New York City, Niagara County, N. Y., Red Bank, N. J., and finally, in Jersey 
City. 

He was a man of sterling honor, an ardent supporter of the Government, during the 
late Rebellion, and excessively severe in his arraignment of all members of the Con- 
federacy. This feeling of hostility also shows itself, in his writings, when reviewing the 
lives of members of his family, who, during the Revolutionary War, espoused the Royal 
cause. He was genial, upright and downright. 

He married, in New York City, June 23, 1832, Sarah, daughter of Capt. Alexander 
Coffin, Jr., born Sept. 29, 1799, and died Mch. 31, 1869, at 12.30 A.M., and is interred

THROCKMORTON 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY 

The Throckmortons trace their ancestry into hazy periods of English history where 
they very appropriately start with one of the name oi Adam Throckmorton mentioned in 
the Worcestershire Pipe Roll, A.D. 1176. The name itself is a compilation of At Rock 
Moor Town, a town on a rock, which existed in the vale of Evesham, Fladbury, Wor- 
cestershire, England, and which apparently was the home and main seat of the family for 
some generations. From this common ancestor probably descended a numerous pro- 
gency divided into many family groups, including the important branch seated at 
Coughton, in Warwickshire, all of which bore arms blazoned alike or very slightly 
differenced: 

Arms: Gules, on a chevron argent, three bars gemels sable. 

Crest: On a wreath an elephant's head. Some of the later branches of family replace the old crest 

with "On a wreath, a falcon volante, proper, armed with Bells Jessant, Aurum." 
Motto: Virtus Sola Nobilitas; or, Moribus Antiquis. 

Many of the Throckmortons rose to eminence and had their records preserved by 
contemporary British annalists, but it has been left to the profound American geneal- 
ogists. Col. C. Wickliffe Throckmorton, of New York City, and Mrs. George D. Sither- 
wood, of Bloomington, 111., to assemble all known English and American data in book 
form, books recently and independently issued, which give the last word in a magnificent 
family history. 

The founder of the American family was John Throckmorton, a cadet of one of the 
English branches of the family, but the specific claim that he was the son of Bassing- 
bourne Throckmorton, an alderman and grocer of Norwich, I feel is insufficiently sub- 
stantiated. The complete absence of the unique baptismal name of Bassingbourne, and 
the names of Bassingbourne Throckmorton's kindred, immediate, collateral and remote, 
among the children of John Throckmorton, of Rhode Island and New Jersey, is too 
powerful a rebuttal of this claim to be ignored if it be not absolutely eliminative. If I 
were to hazard an opinion I should incline to the belief that John Throckmorton sprang 
from the line of Job Throckmorton, of Haseley, Warwickshire, an outstanding Puritan 
of his time, who died 1628.

76 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

His advent is chronicled by the mild and kindly Gov. Winthrop, as follows: 

AT ^'^Kf^- 5' '631- The Ship Lyon, Mr. WiUiam Peirce, Master, arrived at Nantasket. She brought 
Mr. Wilhams, a godly minister, with his wife, Mr. Throckmorton, Perkins, Ong, and others with their 
wives and children, about twenty passengers and about two hundred tons of goods. She set sail from 
Bristol, Dec. i, 1630. She had a very tempestuous passage, yet through God's mercy all her people came 
safe, except Way his son, who fell from the spit sail yard in a tempest and could not be recovered though 
he kept in sight for a quarter of an hour; her goods also came in good condition." ' 

May 18, following his arrival, he was admitted a Freeman in the town of Salem, 
Mass., and, though he had moved, his hog house was mentioned as a landmark in the 
town records as late as April 15, 1639. Further his name was perpetuated here in an 
application to a cove on Salem Harbor about two miles west of Peaches Point. 

He became a Baptist and followed the footsteps of Roger Williams, his fellow 
passenger in the Lyon, into Rhode Island, in the summer of 1635 or 1636. 

1637, June. Later settlers, at Providence, R. I., had lands laid out for them "as 
fully as the former portions appropriated to our neighbor Throckmorton, neighbor 
Greene, neighbor Harris, Joshua Verin, neighbor Arnold and neighbor Williams," etc. 

1638, Oct. 8. Roger Williams conveyed to John Throckmorton, as one of twelve 
individuals, an equal interest, with himself, in his Indian purchase, covering the site of 
Providence, and on April 22, 1639, sold him an interest in Chibachuwest, now called 
Prudence Island. The removal of John Throckmorton from Salem was not a compul- 
sory act, as was Mr. Williams', but his strong notion of personal rights and religious free- 
dom would soon have caused his expulsion. For his disaffection and estrangement from 
the Church, and his adoption of Baptist views, he was excommunicated by the Rev. 
Hugh Peters, who, writing July i, 1639, to the Church, at Dorchester, said that John 
Throckmorton, his wife, and others have had "the greatest censure passed upon them 
in this our church," as they "wholly refused to hear the church, denying it and all the 
churches in the Bay to be the true churches." 

1640, July 27. He, with thirty-eight others, signed an agreement for a form of 
government at Rhode Island. 

1643. He made application to the Dutch to settle within their jurisdiction which 
was granted: 

Whereas Mr. Throckmorton, with his associates, solicits to settle with thirty-five families within the 
limits of the jurisdiction of their High Mightinesses, to reside there in peace and enjoy the same privileges 
as our other subjects, and be favored with the free exercise of their religion; having seen the petition of the 
aforesaid Throckmorton, and consulted with the interests of the Company, as this request can by no 
means be injurious to the country, more so as the English are to settle at a distance of three miles from us, 
so it is granted. Mr. Throckmorton, with thirty-five English families, are permitted to settle within three 
miles of Amsterdam. Albany Records from 1638 to 1642. 

Upon the 6th of July, 1643, the following "land brief" was granted to Jan Throckmorton: 
We, William Kieft, director general, and the council, in behalf of their high mighty lords, the States 
General of the United Netherlands, his highness the Prince of Orange, and the noble lords, the managers 
of the General Incorporated West India Company in New Netherlands residing, by these presents, do 
publish and declare that we, on this day the date underwritten, have given and granted unto J an Throck- 
morton a piece of land, (being a portion of Vredeland,) containing as follows, along the East river of New 
Netherlands, extending from the point half a mile, which piece of land aforesaid is surrounded on one side 
by a little river, and on the other side by a great kill, which river and kill on high water running, meet each 
other, surround the said land, as will more cleariy appear by a map of the same which has been made and 
marked oflt by the surveyor, with the express conditions and terms that the said Jan Throckmorton, or they 



THROCKMORTON OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 77 

who by virtue of these presents shall succeed to his action, the noble lords, the managers aforesaid, shall 
acknowledge as their lords and patroons, under the sovereignty of the high and mighty lords, the States 
General, and unto their director and council here, shall in all thmgs be confirmed as all good citizens are in 
duty bound; provided also that the said Jan Throckmorton and his company (associates) shall further- 
more be subject to all such burdens and imposts, as already have been enacted by the noble lords, and 
hereafter may yet be enacted. It is furthermore made an express condition that the aforesaid Jan Throck- 
morton, according to promise, shall settle on the aforesaid lands as many families as may offer in the same 
manner, constituting over the said Throckmorton and his company, in our stead, in the real and actual 
possession of the aforesaid piece of land, lying on the East river aforesaid, giving them by these presents 
the full and irrevocable might, authority, and special permission the aforesaid parcel of land to enter, cul- 
tivate, inhabit and occupy, in like manner as he may lawfully do with other his patrimonial lands and 
effects, without our, the grantors in quality aforesaid, thereunto any longer having, reserving or saving any 
part, action, or control whatever, but to the behoof as aforesaid, from all assisting from this time forth and 
forever, promising moreover this transport firmly, invariably, and irrevocably to maintain, fulfil, and exe- 
cute, and to do all that in equity we are bound to do. Done in Fort Amsterdam in New Netherlands, this 
6th day of July, 1643.

Secretary. Albany Records^ G.G., g8. Idem., 173-4. 

This grant, subsequently called Throckmorton's Neck and Throg's Neck, embraced 
the eastern part of the present town. It was bounded on the north by Eastchester 
neck, on the east by Eastchester bay and Long Island sound, on the south by the East 
river, and on the west by the Westchester creek.* 

Throckmorton's settlement had a short existence and was obliterated by the Indian 
uprising in the fall of 1643, when it was set upon by the savages and every vestige of it 
destroyed. Eighteen persons were killed and those who were so fortunate as to escape 
death, made their way to the Fort at New Amsterdam and "some that escaped from the 
Indian attack went back to Rhode Island," says Winthrop. Among those who returned 
was John Throckmorton. 

In 1647, John Throckmorton was living in Providence, and was asked to pay fifteen 
pounds, in wampum, for a house. 

1647, Feb. 27. He was granted the house and land of Edward Cope, provided he 
satisfied the Deputies of Providence, the amount of a certain lien against said property. 

1650, Sept. 2. He was taxed £1-3-4, at Providence, R. I. 

In 1652, he was Town Moderator, at Providence, R. I. 

*Upon the extremity of the point is now, in course of erection (1848) by the United States government, a very strong fortifica- 
tion, called Fort Schuyler. It is calculated, when completed, to defend this entrance and protect the city of New York from foreign 
invasions, in connection with the formidable works of a similar character erected at the Narrows. 

Distumell's Gazetteer, of New York. 

Upon the 29th of April, 1652, John Throckmorton petitioned the director general for leave to transport Throckmorton's 
neck. In October following permission was granted, whereupon he conveyed the same to Augustine Hermans. 

Albany Records, Court o] Assize, Vol. 2, p. 59. 

On the 5th of December, 1656, Governor Stuyvesant ordered that Throckmorton's and Cornhill's neck (Classon's Point), 
might come into their jurisdiction if they please. Albany Records, Court of Assize, Vol. i, p. 60. 

Augustine Hermans, soon after his purchase, conveyed fifty morgen of land situated on Throckmorton's neck, to Thomas 
Hunt. In 1665, the town of Westchester asserted "that she had always enjoyed Throckmorton's neck." 

Albany Records, Court of Assize, Vol. 2, p. 60. 

On the 7th of January, 1667, Richard NichoUs granted to Roger Townsend "a certain parcel of land being on ye back 

side of Throckmorton's neck " 

In 1669, thirty acres of land on Throckmorton's neck were granted to Mrs. Micah Spicer. 

Upon the 1 2th of January, 1686, Spicer's and Brockett's necks (commonly called the grove farm) were confirmed by letters 
patent, under the great seal of the province, to Thomas Hunt, 

At a court of assize held November 5th, 1669, Mrs. Micah Spicer sued for thirty acres of land on Throckmorton's neck. 

Albany Records, Court of Assize, p. 22$. 

In 1688, William Barnes and Martha his wife, conveyed lands on Throckmorton's neck, situate near those of Robert Huestis 
to Thomas Bedient. Albany Records, Lib. A, p. 250. Also Bolton's History Of Westchester County, Vol. 2, pp. 145, 149. 



78 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

1654, June 26. He sold his interest in Prudence Island, R. I., to Richard Parker, of 
Boston. 

In 1655, he was on the Freeman's List, at Providence, R. L 

1659, Apr. 24, He sold sixty acres to William Carpenter. 

1659, June 20. He entered three ankers of strong waters. 

1664. He became interested in the development of East Jersey, and shortly there- 
after became one of the Monmouth Patentees. 

In 1664, '65, '66, '67, '68, '70, '71, '72, '73 and '75, he was a Deputy in Rhode Island. 

1666, May 31. He took the oath of allegiance to Charles II, at Providence. 

1672, June 14. John Throckmorton, of Rhode Island, conveyed to his son John 
Throckmorton, land in Middletown. Town Book of Middletown, N. J. 

1672, July 18. He wrote a letter to Roger Williams upbraiding him for a letter to 
George Fox, in which Williams proposed a joint discussion touching Quakerism. He 
addressed two other sharp letters to him. 

1675, June 15. He, still of Rhode Island, sold one hundred and forty acres at , 

to Daniel Abbott. 

1677. He was Town Treasurer; also in the same year a member of the Town Com- 
mittee. 

In 1679, he was taxed 7s. 6d. 

In 1687, his ratable estate was two house lots and four shares of meadow. 

1687. "Estate of deceased John Throckmorton" taxed 3s. 

John Throckmorton was gentlemanly born, well educated and possessed of wealth. 
He became a trader or merchant in his new home, and likewise was the owner of vessels 
doubtless used in his commercial enterprises, which carried him to Virginia, up the Dela- 
ware River, and to Manhattan. The ships were probably operated by others, as he was 
never, to my knowledge, spoken of as Captain Throckmorton. His trips in them, how- 
ever, were the means of his acquaintance with the desirable lands in Westchester County, 
New York, and the Monmouth Tract in East New Jersey, into whose colonization he 
entered. By deduction he was born about 1600, and arrived in this country when close 
to thirty years of age. He died an octogenarian, while visiting his sons John and Job 
Throckmorton, at Middletown, N. J., between Mch. 17 and Apr. 25, 1683-4, and was 
interred in a plot of land, set aside by and mentioned in the will of his son John Throck- 
morton, which later became known as the Lippit Burying ground, and then the Taylor 
Burying ground, and now is incorporated in the Morford estate on the main highway of 
the village of Middletown, N. J. 

John Throckmorton's wife was Rebecca , as appears from the Rhode Island 

County Records, Vol. i, p. 26, and Middlesex Court Files, contributed by the most pro- 
found and generous student of the Throckmorton family, Capt. G. Andrews Moriarty, 
whose descent is through the emigrant's daughter Patience, wife of Deputy Governor 
John Coggeshall. This Rebecca was probably the wife who accompanied him from 
England, and is alluded to by Winthrop, and again in one of Roger Williams' letters. 

Edward Covill, gent., of Bradwell, in Essex, made his will in 1678; proved Feb. 9, 
1679-80, wherein he left a legacy of £6, to his kinsman John Throckmorton, of Midle- 
Towne, in New England. There is no evidence to determine whether this gitt is to the 
emigrant John Throckmorton, or to his son John Throckmorton, Jr. Both were living 
in 1678 and there was a Middletown in Rhode Island, as well as one in New Jersey, and 
the term New England, was so loosely applied in those days that it could easily cover 
both places. If I were inclined to speculate I should tend to the belief that the reference 



THROCKMORTON OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 79 

was to the emigrant. Should it apply to his son it might unravel the surname of his 
mother Rebecca, wife of the emigrant; and it has been suggested that the name Covell is 
a misreading of Cor«^/ which would account for the intimate association of the Throck- 
morten and Cornell families.

2 FREEGIFT THROCKMORTON, son of John Throckmorton, i, was ap- 
parently the eldest son. He died relatively young and unmarried. 

1667, Sept. I. Capt. Thomas Salter, of Jamaica, commanded a privateer which 
captured a Spanish vessel laden with Campeachy wood. He made William Smith its 
master with directions to sail the prize to Jamaica, instead of which Smith sailed the 
vessel to New York. Thereupon Samuel Mosely, acting for Salter, employed John Rider 
to sue Smith and his associates in the Court of Admiralty. 

Smith, styling himself, Commander of the good ship William, had in the Bay of 
Campeachy, apparently arrogated to himself ownership and set up Articles of Agreement 
Sept. I, 1667, with Freegift Frogmorton, Thomas Barnes, Symon Jones, Samuel Smith, 
Thomas Davis, John Haytor and Abraham Keelings, by which it was agreed that each 
man was to have his proper share of the vessel and a proportionate share of the Cam- 
peachy wood then on board, with the Captain having two shares; that no one was to 
sell his interest except to one of the others; that if any one deserted the ship he forfeited 
his share and that all prizes were to be equally divided except that the Captain was to 
have two shares. Throckmorton's and Keeling's participation in the venture apparently 
arose from provisioning the ship after it was taken over by William Smith. No decision 
is recorded. New York Wills, Vol. I, p. joj. 

1669, Nov. 6. John Throckmorton, Jr., of Middletown, in East Jersey, who, with 
his father was the lawful heir and next of kin of his late deceased brother Freegift Throck- 
morton, who died intestate, gave a power of attorney to his father, Mr. John Throck- 
morton, of Providence, Rhode Island, in New England, to sue for sums due the estate of 
his late brother Freegift Throckmorton, from Richard Berris [?], of Watertown, or 
Judah Bidedes, in his daughter's possession. Witness: Jonathan Hullmes, son to 
obadiah Hulmes off road Island. Freehold Deeds, A., p. 18.

died Sept. 7, 1676. Her husband was born 1618 (?) and died Oct. i, 1708. He was a 
son of John Coggeshall, Sr.; was an eminent person in the early history of Rhode Island, 
and resided at Newport. He was wealthy and left a will dividing his property between 
three sets of children, by various wives, of which the following are the offspring of his 
second marriage:

4 JOHN THROCKMORTON, son of John Throckmorton, i, was probably born 
in this country, or if not, was an infant when he reached here. He dwelt, successively 
in Salem, Mass., Providence, R. I., Throg's Neck, N. Y., and Middletown, N. J. After 
the massacre at Throg's Neck in 1643, he returned to Providence, but joined in founding 
the settlement of Monmouth County, whither he removed and abided till his decease in 
1690. His earliest record is that which connects him with Providence, R. I. where in 
June, 1668, he engaged allegiance. It was shortly after this that he moved to Middle- 
town, where, in December, 1667 (if it be not his father that is meant), he had assigned 
to him town lots. Shortly after his arrival in Middletown Dec. 12, 1670, he was married 
or as the ancient record expresses it, "was coupled together," by Edward Smith, Con- 
stable, to Alice, daughter of Richard and Penelope Stout, of Middletown. 

If he was not already the owner of lands he was speedily put in the possession ot 
such by his father, who, by deed of Mch. 3, 1672, conveyed one of his two shares of land 
acquired as a Patentee, to his son John, while the other he conveyed to James Ashton, 
the husband of his daughter Deliverance Throckmorton. From the fact that Job, a 
younger brother, drew town lots with the father in 1667, it may be inferred that John 
Throckmorton, 4, had not yet withdrawn from the Providence Plantations, and that his 
interests were only such as his father primarily secured, and which were later conveyed 
to him. However, he soon added, by grants and purchases, to the lands conveyed him 
by his father and died seized of a large realty. 

1685, July 20. For £375, Pennsylvania currency, he bought of Robert Turner, one 
of the twelve Proprietors, of East Jersey, 1/48 undivided part of the Province of East 
Jersey, it being }4 of said Turner's K of Thomas Rudyard's undivided }i of the Province 
conveyed by Rudyard to Turner in 1682. 

1685, Dec. 4. John Throckmorton conveyed to James Bowne, Job Throckmorton, 
Joseph Throckmorton, James Ashton, Joseph Grover, Lidia Bowne, and Edward Smith, 
each, i/io of his 1/48; and to Benjamin Borden, John Smith, John Stout and Jonathan 
Holmes, each, 1/20 of his 1/48, of East Jersey. In consideration of the forgoing pur- 
chase and claim, the Proprietors on June 25, 1688, granted and released to the said John 
Throckmorton four hundred and eighty acres at Crosswicks, in Monmouth County, 
"beginning at a Walnut tree standing on the South side of the Burlington path." 

1688, Mch. 28. John Throgmorton sold to James Bowne 1/20 of his 1/24. Later, 
Sept. 22, 1699, James Bowne, as heir, conveyed this conveyance to his brother John 
Bowne who sold the 1/20 of 1/24 to James Alexander. 

John Throckmorton drew in the first division of lands in Middletown: lot No. 24, 
Dec. 30, 1667, and lot No. 18, Dec. 31, 1667.

1688, May 14. He was appointed one of two Deputies from Middletown, to the 
Assembly. Records of the Governor and Council of East Jersey, p. 146. 

John Throckmorton was a man of eminence. He served as a representative in the 
Assembly 1675 to 1688; was the Town's representative to meet the Governor in 1677; 
was long a Judge in the County courts, and was one of the Committee, who, with the 
sheriff, was appointed to build the first Monmouth County jail in 1684. 

His lands amounted to several thousand acres and his purchases are too numerous 
to mention in their entirety. 

He died after an active and useful life, in the Summer of 1690, leaving a will recorded 
in New York and Trenton, N. J., which mentioned the following persons: 

his wife Alice, who received his dwelling and orchard at Garret's Hill, in Middletown, and one 
hundred acres adjoining, and twenty acres of meadow; his son Joseph and daughter Rebecca, who received 
the balance of his uplands and meadow, lying within ten miles of his residence, at Garret's Hill, and to 
them likewise, upon nis wife's demise, the bequest made to her. The rest of his lands and proprietorship 
he willed, equally, to his four other children, who are likewise to have one-half of the estate 'that doth by 
right belong to me by reason of my brother Joseph's will." Finally, he reserved for burial purposes, a 
one-quarter acre lot 'where my father is buried m Middletown." The will was written July 17, 1690; 
proved Aug. 22, 1690. Witnesses: Richard Hartshorne and Job Throckmorton. 

Alice Stout, the widow of John Throckmorton, married, second, Robert Skelton, by 
license dated Oct. 30, 161 1, by whom she had: 

Susanna Skelton who married Barnes Johnson, and had: Skelton Johnson and Alice 
Johnson, who married John Debow, who died 1749-50, leaving a son John Debow. 

Alice Stout married, third, Mr. Jones. 

1704, Apr. 13. Letters of administration were granted to Alice Jones, mother of 
Joseph Throckmorton, lately deceased, intestate, and again, May 15, 1704, an inventory 
of the estate of Robert Skelton was filed in New York, which was of large size and which

In 1692, Robert Skelton was Foreman of the Petit Jury in Monmouth County, and 
April, 1696-7, both he and his wife were living in or about Middletown. 

1696-7, March. Robert Skelton, of New York, Taylor, and Alice his wife, conveyed

8a HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

In 1700-1703, Robert Skelton was a Vestryman of Trinity Church, New York City. 

In 1717, an Alee Skelton was a witness at the marriage of a kins-woman, Patience 
Lippet to John Wooley, of Shrewsbury. She was, perhaps, Alice Stout, widow of Robert 
Skelton, or if not, she must have been her daughter. It is certain that Alice (Stout) 
Throckmorton and Robert Skelton had one child, viz.: Susanna, for, in 1750, it is set 
forth in a deed, recorded at Freehold, that Susannah Skelton, wife of Barnes Johnson, 
in 1726, was a "sister of the half blood" of Joseph Throckmorton, her brother, and that 
he, said Barnes Johnson, and wife Susanna Skelton had a son Skelton Johnson.* 

The name Skelton appears in Bucks County, Pa., where Robert Skelton, in 1748, 
was not infrequently alluded to in property transactions. 

Who Alice Stout's third husband, Mr. Jones, was, I have not discovered.

5 JOB THROCKMORTON, son of John Throckmorton, i, was born in the year 
1650, (Sept. 30), probably in the State of Rhode Island, and was likely the youngest of 
the children. In 1667 he came to Middletown, and was allotted lands in the village and 
outlying country. 

1667, Dec. 30. Job Throckmorton drew, in the first division of lands in Middletown, 
lot No. 22, and on Dec. 31, 1667, he drew lot No. 36. 

In 1668, he recorded his cattle-mark. 

In 1670, he owned a large tract of ground, in Middletown, to which he added a grant 
from the Proprietors, Nov. 18, 1676, which he subsequently exchanged for land at Colt's 
Neck, Jan. 7 [20], 1700, owned by Nathaniel Leonard, who was joined in the deed by his 
wife, Susannah Leonard. Each family thereupon took permanent residence upon their 
newly acquired domain, and the Leonards gave to their land the name of Leonardsville. 
These sites have remained in the respective families and have been their homesteads for 
over two hundred years. In 1700, when this transfer took place, Job Throckmorton was 
residing at Shrewsbury. 

•1726, Oct. 8. Rebecca Stillwell, of Staten Island, widow, and John Coward, of Freehold, Send Greeting: It is set forth that 
the Proprietors of East Jersey, did convey to Joseph Throckmorton, now deceased, son of John Throckmorton, deceased, one hundred 
and thirty-seven acres of land, at the head of Millstone Brook Creek, Freehold Township, and that the said Joseph Throckmorton 
died without issue, and the land descended to his several sisters, as coheirs. John Coward was the son and heir of one sister. Patience 
Lake, deceased, and quit claimed to Susanna, wife of Barnes Johnson, of Middletown, "sister of the half blood to the above named 
Joseph Throckmorton, deceased," etc. These lands had been also patented to John Reid, Esq., late of Freehold, who received them, 
by patent, Aug. 8, lyoi, and who sold them with warranty, Mch. 9, 1705, to Richard Watson. 

In 1750, Col. John Reid, son of the late John Reid, bought out the rights of the heirs of Joseph Throckmorton, for which he 
paid £137, and William Watson, the successor of Richard Watson, paid to each, the sum of 5 shillings, as appears from the following: 

1750, May 7. Skelton Johnson, son and heir to Susanna Johnson, deceased; John Lippit, son and heir to Sarah Lippit, 
deceased, and Thomas Stillwell, Jr., son and heir to Alice Stillwell, deceased, all of Middletown, convey lands to William Watson 
and Col. John Reid, of Freehold, patented to Joseph Throckmorton, deceased, July 24, 1693, who died without issue, and whose 
lands passed to his five sisters as coheirs, viz.: Rebecca, wife of John StiUwell; Sarah, wife of Moses Lippit; Alice, wife of Thomas

84 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

6 DELIVERANCE THROCKMORTON, daughter of John Throckmorton, i, 
married at Providence, R. I., James Ashton, Jr. He was doubtless the son of James 
Ashton, who was a Commissioner in 1652, '58, '59 and '63, and a Deputy in 1665, in 
Rhode Island. 

In 1667, James Ashton, Jr., located upon the Monmouth Patent, in the vicinity of 
Freehold. He was apparently a divine, for he is spoken of in old documents as the Rev. 
James Ashton, yet it is likely that he was not ordained. Be that as it may, he was the 
first who ministered to the spiritual wants of the infant settlements in Monmouth Coun- 
ty, which were of the Baptist persuasion. He was held in great esteem and filled numer- 
ous responsible positions. See Ashton Family. His children, so far as is now known to 
me, are: 

34 James Ashton, of Freehold; of age in or before 1693; died probably 1731. 

35 John Ashton, of Cream Ridge; died 1744. 

26 Mary Ashton, a spinster; died 1739; her estate was administered by Jeremiah 
Stillwell. 

37 Alice Ashton born 1671; married Obadiah Holmes; died Apr. 27 17 16 aged 

45 years. 

38 Deliverance Ashton; the first wife of Jonathan Holmes. 

39 Rebecca Ashton married David, son of Richard and Penelope Stout. 

40 Joseph Ashton 

7 JOSEPH THROCKMORTON, son of John Throckmorton, i, was an early 
property holder in Middletown. He was a trader and mariner and the owner of two 
vessels, perhaps more. He never married, so far as is known, or if so, outlived his 
marriage and issue, if any. 

His will, recorded in New York, Lib. Ill, p. 183, declares that he is a mariner, 
"being about to go to Sea," and that he devises his property to his namesake Joseph, the 
heir male of his brother John Throckmorton, yeoman, of Middletown, East Jersey, 
whom he constitutes executor of his will and trustee of the bequest to his nephew Joseph. 
The will was written Dec. 2, 1689, at Burlington, West Jersey. 

Joseph Throckmorton, Mariner, bound for the West Indies, made a nuncupative 
will, in Philadelphia, Pa. Alice and John Throckmorton gave a power of attorney to 
Richard Hartshorne to settle the affairs of "Joseph Throckmorton dec-*." His vessels 
were lying off Burlington, in Delaware River. 

Trenton, N. J., fFills, Lib. 10 or E., p. 257. 

1690, Sept. 2. Allice Throckmorton gave a power of attorney to Richard Harts- 
horne. She signed by her mark. Recited that Joseph Throckmorton had ketches, 
"Hannah" and "Sarah," at anchor off Delaware. 

John Throckmorton, 4, died prior to his brother Joseph, 7, leaving his [John's] wife 
Alice, his executrix; whereupon as such, she applied for letters of administration upon 
the estate of Joseph Throckmorton, which were granted, in New York, Oct. 13, 1690. 
In the probate proceedings she is spoken of as "Mistress Ails" and "Mistress Alte 
Throckmorton." 

8 THROCKMORTON, daughter of John Throckmorton, i. 

On the 30"" of Oct., 1667, John Throckmorton wrote a letter to the Assembly, of 
Rhode Island, concerning the estate of his daughter Taylor, which was referred to the 



THROCKMORTON OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 85 

Town Council. She was possibly then recently deceased. No other information has 
been obtained concerning her that I know of. 

9 There were probably other children who were murdered by the Indians in their 
youth, while living at Throg's Neck, in 1643. Mr. Winthrop wrote in his diary that the 
Indians killed "such of Mr. Throckmorton's and Mr. Cornhill's famiUes as were at 
home." 

Extermination of the whites was an easy matter, for Winthrop further says, of these 
settlers, that "these people had cast off ordinances and churches, and now at last, their 
own people, and for larger accommodations, had subjected themselves to the Dutch 
and dwelt scatteringly, near a mile asunder." 

19 REBECCA THROCKMORTON, daughter of John Throckmorton, 4, became 
the second wife of John Stillwell, of Staten Island. 

John Stillwell, the husband of Rebecca Throckmorton, 4, was sheriff, of Staten 
Island, in 1693; Justice in 1702, and a Member of Assembly 17 10, to the date of his 
demise. His wife was living in 1724, when he died. The property she brought him by 
marriage, he bequeathed to his sons — to John, the estate at Garrat's Hill, and to Joseph, 
the lands in Nutswamp; both situated in Middletown, N. J.

St. James' Cathedral. He espoused the Royal side during the Revolution, and subse- 
quently moved to North Norwich, Ontario, where he died and where his estate is still 
occupied by his descendants. 

Tradition says that when he left Monmouth County he went to Prince Edward's 
Island, where a tract of land had been granted him; later, he sojourned in New Jersey a 
while. He travelled in France, where he was taught "the sword exercise." Margaret 
White, the wife of Col. John Throckmorton, was reputed the daughter of a sea captain 
and was one who by frequent trips with her father, had become an expert sailor herself. 
Once while on a voyage, when the captain and the mates became intoxicated, she 
promptly had them locked in their cabins, and, taking the helm, herself, sailed the ship 
through many dangers into port. Her portrait gives her a fine, strong face.

& still in Confinement in the City of Philadelphia, appeared before the Board & prayed 
that he might be indulged so far as to have his s** son removed into this State & confined 
at his own House at Colts neck in Monmouth County, offering to enter into Bond for 
£2,000 or 3,000., if required, for his future Good Behavior, & for his Appearance before 
this Board when & wherever required. 

The Council taking the affair into Consideration, were of Opinion that they could 
not form any Conclusion respecting a Prisoner without having him first before them, and 
therefore as they cannot redeem Time sufficient for the Purpose at present, they deferred 
the Determination to some future Time."

Joseph Philips died Aug. i, 1820, aged 34 years and 9 months, though I find a doubt 
expressed as to the age, on his tombstone. Ursula Throckmorton died Sept. 15, 1824, 
aged 62 years. Both are buried at Christ Church, Shrewsbury, N. J. 

1820, Jan. 17. Joseph Phillips, Esq., of Freehold, made his will; proved Aug. 14, 
1820, in which he mentioned his wife Ursula.

nephew Thomas C., son of brother James; nephew Joseph, son of brother William; sister Jane Forman, wife 
of Thomas Forman, "now of Kean Tuckey, and her son Samuel Forman. 

He apparently died without issue. 

181 1, Feb. 19. John and James Throckmorton, as executors of Samuel Throck- 
morton, brought suit for ^100., at the house of Jacob Hart, Innkeeper, of Shrewsbury, 
before Justice Joseph Vanderveer against Barnes H. Smock and Doctor Anderson. The 
former was served by a summons by William A. Wykoff, Constable, and at the request 
of Archie Smock, for his father, the case was adjoined, but judgment later was taken by 
the plaintiffs and execution granted and given to Richard Sutphen, Constable, to collect. 
No property of Lloyd's was found and attempted collection was then made against Dr. 
Anderson, who put up bonds, (Smock having removed), and appealed to the Supreme 
Court. The Throckmortons filed a bill of details (extracted) as follows: 

D' Capt° Thomas Lloyd, in ace* with Throckmorton & Cook C'. 

Purchases begin 1802, July 3"*. Among them: Muslin, Gimblets, piece Tape, i Skean Silk, i Gall.

Purchases end Dec. 18, 1802. Credits end Dec' i, 1802. Total bill £9-8-6. 

Dr. (James) Anderson counterclaimed and among the reasons given to set aside the 
judgment of Joseph Vanderveer, Esq'', Justice of the Peace, Monmouth County, is that 
the plaintiff is mentioned as Docktar Anderson and his Christian name is omitted. 

•Christopher Vought was the son of John Vought and Mary, daughter of John Grandin.

TILTON 

OF 

NEW JERSEY* 

The first Tiltons in America were established at Lynn, Massachusetts, as early as 
1 640-1. Two of them were contemporary, William and John, and a great divergence in 
their years leads one to suspect that the two may have stood in the relation of older and 
much younger brother, unless we give to John a father of like name, which we are dis- 
posed to do because of an allusion in the Court records to the wife of a John Til ton, Jr., 
whose name appears in the presentments of 1642, for non-belief in and contempt of the 
ordinance of baptism. If we accept the existence of a John Tilton, Sr., he would be on a 
parity in age with William Tilton, and there would then be no need to strain the ages 
of William and John, Jr., in order to bring them into the same generation, even though 
there is no proof of the supposed John Tilton, Sr.'s, having come to this country. 

That this supposititious John Tilton, Sr., is of the closest kin to William Tilton, of 
Lynn, and, supposedly his brother, may be justly inferred because of the identity of 
names in the descendants of the two men, viz.: Peter, Samuel, Daniel, Abraham, as 
children of William Tilton, of Lynn, which names likewise appear among the six sons of 
John Tilton, the grandson of the supposititious John Tilton, Sr., of Lynn. 

John Tilton's history and movements more intimately concern us, as he was the 
ancestor of the Tiltons of New Jersey. 

How long John Tilton may have sojourned in Lynn prior to 1640, 1 know not, but it 
was shortly after this date that, actuated in all likelihood by the same feelings of religious 
unrest as possessed Lady Deborah Moody, he migrated, probably with her and her 
followers, to New Amsterdam, to secure a place for settlement among the Dutch. He 

'This genealogy of the Tilton Family was compiled by me many years ago and revised for me by my friend, the late Rev. 
William White Hance, just prior to his death. Mr. Hance was well qualified to render me this service. His investigation into the 
history of the Tiltons was a profound and continuous labor of many years and a matter of pride and love. In November, 1927, Mr. 
Francis Theodore Tilton commenced the pubUcation in serial pamphlet form (still in issuance) his History Of The Tilton Family in 
America, a work so exhaustive in character that I have hesitated to proceed with printing my own manuscript. However, upon 
reflection, I feel that its omission in Volume V, would be an abridgement of the Historial and Genealogical Miscellany's value to 
many whose family histories have been published in the preceding volumes and who are connected by various ties with the Tiltons. 
I have studiously avoided all comparison of Mr. Tilton's work with my own to avoid the possibility of even unconscious plagiarism. 
I do not know that any differences will occur in the facts we present, but should such a situation arise I would advise a prompt 
acceptance of Mr. Tilton's statements in preference to my own as I recognize him as the legitimate historian of the Tilton Family. 
Mr. Tilton incorporates much information concerning the family alliances and the epochs in which they live; which, with the personal 
history he supplies his characters, makes them live again. Every one may be proud of his Tilton blood and Mr. Francis Theodore 
Tilton's work will grow invaluable as time goes on. 



132 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

apparently married while residing at Lynn, and had born to him there two children at 
least, John, in 1640, and Peter, in 1642. In 1644, Sarah, his daughter, was born, per- 
haps in New Amsterdam or Gravesend, though the latter had not yet become a place of 
organized settlement, or was at least too much exposed to the hardships of early life to 
harbor any except the most hardy settlers. 

John Tilton was one of the first settlers of Gravesend, of which place he was the 
Town Clerk from 1643 to 1662, and again from 1668 to 1681. 

1646, Feb. 20. In the first division of distribution of farms called Plantations, and of 
lots called Garden Spots, John Tilton was assigned one of each. 

1652. As agent for Mr. William Bell he bought a farm in Gravesend of Robert 

Scott. T-k L e r> 

1655. Jacobus Van Curler and other Dutch settlers of Gravesend wrote to Director 
Stuyvesant stating their "daily fears that the strange reports from Hempstead and 
Newtown that the Savages intended killing the Dutch among the English; that the 
Savages had demanded of the English of Gravesend that they should separate from the 
Dutch so that they might not be in any danger; that Tilton and the Magistrates of 
Gravesend have advised the Dutch that it were best they moved away, but if the Dutch 
would not move the English would do the best they could for them, which they think 
is poor consolation if the Savages should come; that if they leave Long Island is no 
longer inhabited by the Dutch; that the English continually communicate with each 
other; that yesterday Tilton and the Sheriff of Newtown came; today they went away 
again." And they conclude by asking for a moderate force, else an armed vessel to 
carry them, their families and possessions away. 

1656, May 14. Letter of John Tilton, Clerk, to Director Stuyvesant in answer to a 
complaint of Anthony Johnson in respect to intrusion on his, Johnson's, lands. In this 
letter, written for his fellow townsmen of Gravesend, John Tilton alluded to Anthony 
Johnson as a Mohammedan, and a troublesome person, .... in troublesome time when 
the whole country seems to hang upon uncertainty, and all our lives in jeopardy as by 
the great supplies Indians have of arms and ammunition. It would appear that John- 
son charged the Gravesenders with encroaching upon the boundary lines of his farm, 
while they countercharged that he invaded the bounds of Gravesend, and accused him 
of being a liar, and called him likewise Anthony the zibi, which means the skunk. 

When the first evangelists of the Quaker persuasion came to New Netherlands, the 
Governor, Peter Stuyvesant, it appears, received them kindly, but soon after showed a 
spirit of bitter hostility to them as well as to the Lutherans of New Amsterdam and the 
Independents of Middleberg. And Feb. i, 1656, an ordinance was enacted against those 
who held conventicles here and there within the Province, and against unqualified per- 
sons in such meetings who assumed the ministerial office without being called or ap- 
pointed thereto by ecclesiastical or civil authority, and penalties were framed for any 
infraction of this ordinance. So far as regards its application to the Lutherans of New 
Amsterdam, this intolerant law was vetoed, June 14, 1656, by the authorities in Holland, 
and while the Director was therefore restrained from interfering with them, the English 
of Gravesend and other towns were not protected in Hke manner, and were little likely to 
find favor with the home authorities, and consequently might safely be proceeded against.^ 
Hence, in 1658, on the 8th of January, an order was issued to furnish the Sheriff of 
Gravesend with a copy of John Tilton's answer to the charge of entertaining a Quakeress; 
and two days later (Jan. 10) he was sentenced for harboring some of "the abominable 
sect of Quakers," and fined £12. and costs. 



TILTON OF NEW JERSEY 

On the morning of Jan. lo, 1661, the under schout of New Amsterdam and Nicholas 
Bayard came from Jamaica to Gravesend having heard there was a Quaker meeting at 
the latter place. Arriving at the house of Samuel Spicer, they learned that George 
Wilson, a Quaker preacher, had just held a meeting there, but being informed of the 
approach of the officers had made his escape by so precipitous a flight as to leave his cloak 
behind. This the officers seized and also arrested Samuel Spicer, who, with Mary the 
wife of John Tilton, had attended a Quaker meeting, at Jamaica, the day previous •' and 
on the 20th of January, John Tilton, "for being at the Quaker meeting January 9' and 
at a Quaker meeting at Gravesend January loth," was sentenced to be banished 'from 
the Province, but, through the influence of Lady Moody, he was pardoned. 

This experience, however, does not seem to have at all intimidated this courageous 
couple, and, September 19, 1662, the Director and Council notified the magistrates of 
all the English towns on Long Island to assist Resolved Waldron in arresting "all persons 
who attend unlawful or prohibited meetings." At the same time complaint was made 
against John Tilton, for attending meetings of Quakers and harboring persons of that 
persuasion, and against Mary, his wife, for "attending meetings of that abominable sect 
called Quakers." They were both arrested and imprisoned, and, October 6th, were 
sentenced to banishment from the Province. The sentence, however, was not put into 
execution until the following May, influence having apparently been brought to bear on 
the Director to postpone the carrying of it out until the rigors of winter should be passed. 
But, May 7, 1663, the Fiscal was ordered "to take an inventory of the estate of John 
Tilton, sentenced to banishment," and, May 17th, a warrant was issued to the Sheriff, 
commanding him to remove John and Mary Tilton out of the Province. In this emerg- 
ency kind friends (Anthony Wright and others), at Oyster Bay, offered the banished 
couple a home, which they gladly accepted, and that place, outside the Dutch jurisdic- 
tion, became their residence until the hurling of the despotic Stuyvesant from power, in 
1664, made it possible for them to return home. 

Upon the banishment of John Tilton, the office of Town Clerk became vacant, and 
William Goulding was elected as his successor. John Tilton and his wife removed back 
from Oyster Bay to Gravesend in 1667, and, in 1668, he was again made Town Clerk, 
and annually re-elected to that office till 168 1, when John Emans succeeded him. 

1664, Jan. I. Among those to whom land was deeded by the Indians at Shrewsbury, 
N. J., we find the names of John Tilton, Sr., and Jr. 

1665. Samuel Spicer and John Tilton, having become owners of Barron Island, sold 
it to Elbert Elberts (Stothoff). 

1665, Nov. I. George Baxter sold to John Tilton, of Gravesend, lot No. 19, in 
Gravesend, formerly owned by Thomas Greedye. 

1670, Jan. 5. In the partition of land on Garretson's Neck and Guisbert's Island, 
into thirty-nine lots, John Tilton was assigned two of them. 

1672. John Tilton and John Tilton, Jr., were among those who held land in the 
West meadow, Gravesend. 

1675, Sep. 6. He was commissioned one of the Justices of the Peace of King's 
County. 

1676, June 26. John Tilton and John Cook, who had been chosen Overseers of 
Gravesend, being Quakers, refused to take the oath of office, and the Court of Sessions 
dispensed with it, directing them "to give their engagements to Mr. Justice Hubbard to 
perform their duties as overseers, under penalty of perjury." 



134 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

1681, Apr. 15. John Tilton, of Gravesend, sold his rights in two acres of land, lot 
No. 7, on Guisbert's Island, to John Carsonson, of Gravesend. 

1683. John Tilton, of Gravesend, was assessed on twenty-nine acres of land, one 
horse, five cows, nine sheep, and two hogs. 

1688/9. John Tilton was among those who received land in Gravesend, in the 
public division of the same. 

The maiden name of Mary, the wife of John Tilton, is to me unknown. She was 
apparently the mother of all his children. And it was probably she who appeared, 
lacking a Christian name, but described as the wife of John Tilton, Jr., in the present- 
ments of Dec. 14, 1642, for maintaining that baptism was no ordinance of God. 

She was a woman of strong religious convictions, and was not afraid to assert them. 
The inevitable result was that this arrayed her against the authorities both in New 
England and New Amsterdam. And since she, as well as her husband, was a follower 
of George Fox, she was much persecuted. 

"Goody Tilton was not so much condemned for assisting at Conventicles as for 
having, like a sorceress, gone from door to door to lure and seduce the people, yea even 
young girls, to join the Quakers." 

She died, May 23 [29], 1683, at Gravesend, and was no doubt interred in the plot 
her husband later left in his will for burial purposes. 

John Tilton died, 1688, at Gravesend, leaving the following will: 

I, John Tilton off Gravesend in the Kings Countie upon Long Island in Yorkshire, being in Perffect 
memorie as my last will and testament do heareby make and appoint my louving sonns John Tilton and

8 Mary Tilton born [in ye iimo.] June, 1654; married Henry Bowman. It has 
been thought his name was Carman, but in the will of his father-in-law it 
seems to have been spelled boman, with a small letter "b" instead of the 
capital. While the name Carman is found in Monmouth Co., at a little 
later date, Henry Bowman appears to have paid Quit Rents on land that had 
been recorded to him in 1681, and which adjoined some of Peter Tilton's 
land. 

2 JOHN TILTON, son of John Tilton, i, born 4mo. (June), 4, 1640; died probably 
early in the year 1704, his will having been probated April 17th of that year. He mar- 
ried, first, at Oyster Bay, L. I., 8mo. (Oct.), 10, 1670, Mary Coats, and second, at Flush- 
ing, L. I., 3mo. (May), 12, 1674, Rebecca Terry, by whom he appears to have had all his 
children. She died, in Middletown, N. J., lomo. (Dec), 18, 171 5. This date for her 
death is found on the Shrewsbury Quaker Meeting Records, on the same page as, and 
following after the names and dates of birth of the children born to Walter and Sarah 
(Tilton) Herbert. And Sarah Herbert was her own daughter. 

1658, Oct. 10. Thomas Greedye, born in Devonshire, England, in his will of this 
date; proved Nov. 4, 1658, devised to his loving friend John Tilton, of Gravesend, his 
estate, out of which the said Tilton was to pay his debts, and the remainder he be- 
queathed to Peter Tilton, son of said John Tilton, excepting only one small sum the 
which I have given unto John Tilton, Jr. 

1662, Nov. 16. Order for John Tilton, Jr., to deliver up a boat he had secured. 

1664, I mo., 25. John Tilton, Jr., and his brother-in-law, Samuel Spicer, were among 
those named in the first purchase of land, in Monmouth Co., from the Indian Sachem 
Popomora. This deed was acknowledged April 7, 1665, and is on record in the Secretary 
of State's Office, at Albany and in Trenton, as well as in the Proprietors' Office at Perth 
Amboy. 

1683, Aug. 13. John Tilton, Jr., of Gravesend, sold to Martin Petersen (Wykoff) 
a plantation in Gravesend. 

1684, Mch. 26. John Tilton, Jr., named as executor in the will of Obadiah Wilkins. 
1691/2, Mch. 8. John Tilton, of Gravesend, sold to Cort Stevenson, of Flatlands, 

all his Gravesend property, for £295, reserving the use for twelve months to remove 
therefrom. About this time he would seem to have left Gravesend to reside in Mon- 
mouth Co. And this deduction is further sustained by the fact that his brother, Peter 
Tilton, and wife Rebecca, were the only Tiltons whose names appear in the Quaker 
Records up to 1692. 

1694, September. He was one of the Grand Jurors independent enough to indict one 
of the Judges then sitting on the bench, and to present another. 

1700, October. He was committed to the custody of the Sheriff for "subscribing a 
seditious paper." 

1700, 9mo., (Nov.), 23. Will of John Tilton, of Middletown; proved Apr. 17, 1704. 
In it he makes no mention of his son Abraham Tilton, probably because he was dead at 
the time of its being made. Neither does the testator refer in it to his youngest daught- 
ers, Mary and Hester. But he does distinctly declare that he had a son Peter Tilton, 
who is not of age, and yet this Peter's name is not given with those of the other children 
in the Shrewsbury Quaker Records, nor in the Friends Records of New York and 
Vicinity, which gives his children and their birth dates, as I append them. 

To son, John Tillton, five shillings; to son Samuel Tillton eighty-five acres of upland and three of

come of age, then to my son Thomas Tillton, and his heirs. If Peter live to be 21, then he is to pay unto 
his two brothers Daniell and Thomas Tillton, fivteen pounds to each; if he die, Daniell shall pay 30 pounds 
to Thomas. Residue to my wife Rebecca Tillton, my Executrix, and after her death, to be equally di-

7 THOMAS TILTON, son of John Tilton, i, born Mch. i, 1652; removed to 
Delaware. 

1678. Thomas Tilton was witness to a deed in Gravesend, L. I. 

In direct descent from this Thomas Tilton, 7, who removed to Delaware, was James 
Tilton, a reputed son, but undoubtedly he was a grandson instead, as records on file at 
Washington, in the Pension Department, state that he was about sixty-nine or seventy 
years of age, in 18 13, and died May 14, 1822. This would make him to have been born 
about 1743 or 1744, and his alleged father, Thomas, would have been about ninety-five 
years of age at his birth, which demonstrates that he was a grandson rather than a son 
of the said Thomas. 

It is further shown by the records of the War Department, at Washington, that 
James Tilton, surgeon, Colonel John Haslett's Delaware Regiment, Revolutionary War, 
was commissioned, Jan. 13, 1776, and was honorably discharged at the expiration of one 
year; that he was appointed physician and surgeon-general. United States Army, June

It has likewise been stated of him that he was a Member of Congress.

the New Jersey line, and to have given to members of it some items concerning his own.

when his brother, Daniel, 14, marries Elizabeth Powell. And it was at his house, in 
Middletown, that his sister, Esther, married William Lawrence Oct. 15, 1719. 

His second intentions of marriage were published, in the Shrewsbury Monthly 
Meeting of Women, Nov. 5, 1722, with Lydia Bills. I suspect she was a sister to that 
Elizabeth who joined with Peter Tilton, as his wife, in conveying land, Dec. 2, 1717, 
when the witnesses to the deed were Thomas Bills, David Allen, Thomas Bills, Jr., and 
John Louis Pintard, in other words that this Peter Tilton, 13, married, first, Elizabeth

both on the same date. Evident, for the reason that, in the minutes of the Monthly 
Meeting, the committee appointed to attend their marriage, reported to the Meeting 
that the marriage had not taken place up to the time of their report, Jan. 6, 1745; asked 
to be continued; and then reported, Feb. 3, 1745, that it had been done in an orderly

181 SILVESTER TILTON, son of Silvester Tilton, 123; married, first, Mary 
(Hull?); second, July 11, 18 18, according to the records at Freehold, N. J., Mary Falkin- 
burg, widow of Caleb Falkinburg, and daughter of Samuel Woodmansee. Salter, in 
his History of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, says she was born in 1799, and that 
Caleb Falkinburg died Jan. 8, 1815, and signed his will in 1817. It is evident that 
Salter is mistaken both in the date of Mary's birth, and also either in the date of Caleb's 
making his will or of his death.

1 82 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

201 REUBEN TILTON, son of Jeremiah Tilton, 130, "born June 28, 1779; died, 
May 9, 1826, aged 46 years, 10 months and 12 days;" married Mary Holoway, "bom 
Oct. 25, 1784; died, Apr. 25, 1827, aged 42 years, 5 months and 28 days." These are 
the exact readings of their tombstones. 

Reuben Tilton was probably born in Monmouth County, and from there removed 
to Little Washington, near New Brunswick, N. J., but returned to Monmouth County, 
and made his home at Morrisville, near Holmdel. He was a cooper by occupation, and 
was killed by the falling of an apple tree on his farm at Morrisville. Originally he and 
his wife were buried at Middletown, but afterwards his daughter, Eliza Shellard, had 
their bodies removed to Keyport, N. J. 

Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Morris, of Glendola, has stated that "My great-grandfather, 
Jeremiah Tilton, had a daughter, Lydia Tilton, a sister to my grandfather, Reuben 
Tilton, who was my father's aunt; she married Richard Bowne, and lived to be nearly 
an hundred years old." 

Mrs. Mary Ann Borden, of Red Bank, N. J., a grand-daughter of the Lydia referred 
to in the last paragraph, says "Aunt Polly, the wife of Reuben Tilton, was a half-sister 
to my grandmother, Lydia Wright." 

Mrs. Sarah Bowne, wife of George Crane, another grand-daughter of the said Lydia, 
but by her second husband, Richard Bowne, says "We used to call Charles Tilton, son 
of Reuben Tilton, 'cousin,' because he was related to us on my father's side." 

There seems very good reason, therefore, to suppose that Lydia was in some way 
related to the Tilton family, but she could not have been either sister or half-sister to 
Reuben, for the dates of their births are only six months apart. And, furthermore, she 
is called Lydia Taylor, the wife of Richard Bowne, on her tombstone; and it was as 
"Lydia Taylor, the daughter of the wife of Lewis Hall" that she was married, first, to 
Thomas Wright, Mch. 6, 1800, by John Smock, J. P. Both names are spelled errone- 
ously in the record at Freehold of her second marriage, which reads Richard Bound 
[Bowne] married Lydia Right [Wright] at Middletown, Aug. 17, 1806.

The late Henry M. Walter, of Washington, D. C, 424 Eleventh St., N.W., endeav-

Jersey line. 

From the records of the Pension Department he learned that Peter Tilton, the earliest of the line to 
whom he could trace, "served as a member of Captain Samuel Clark's company of New York State 
Troops, in the Revolutionary War, this company having been 'selected from the militia of Ulster County 
for the defense of the State of New York, by order of the convention of the said State dated July 16, 1776.' 
His name appears on the muster roll of the company, not dated, with record as follows: 'Day of enlistment 

July 31, Day which marched, Aug. 4, ..... Time of enlistment, till last day of Dec. When 

mustered, Aug. 4, 1776. Age, 36 years, born in Jersey, a carpenter. Height, 5 ft. 10 in. Fair com- 
plexion, brown hair blue eyes.' 

"It also appears from the records that one Peter Tilton served as a private in Captain Philip D. 
Bevier's company, 5th New York Regiment, commanded by Colonel Lewis Duboys, Revolutionary War. 
He enlisted March i , 1777, to serve three years, and was discharged January 20, 1780. It farther appears 
from the records that one Peter Tilton served as a private in Captain Jonathan Piercy's company of 
Colonel Albert Pawling's regiment. New York Militia, Revolutionary War. His name appears on a list 
of certificates issued by the Treasurer of the State of New York, with remark showing that the soldier 
received a certificate for services in 178 1 in the regiment mentioned."

One branch of the Tilton family lived, generally, at and around Bakersville, Bar- 
gaintown, and Absecon, near Atlantic City. Among the descendants the impression 
quite generally obtains that they are descended from the inevitable three brothers, one 
of whom settled on Long Island, one in Monmouth County, and the third, from whom 
they get their descent, at Absecon.

Allen P. Tilton; letters of administration were granted, in Atlantic County, on his

A. Tilton, and the son who was made his administrator. 

CAPTAIN CLAYTON TILTON, the Tory, of Shrewsbury, together with Aaron 
White, was one of the prisoners exchanged for Daniel Randolph and Jacob Flemming, 
who had been captured with Captain Joshua Huddy, at Toms River. It is supposed 
that he accompanied the British when they evacuated New York City. And Mch. 10, 
1794, twenty-four hundred and forty-two acres of land were granted at Musquash, 
New Brunswick, to John Mount, Ebenezer Scott and Clayton Tilton. In 1906, I am 
informed, there stood upon the Tilton grant the Musquash School House, the Church 
of England Rectory, the Shore Line Station House, and several residences. 

Volume 2 of the Second Series of the New Jersey Archives relates that the properties 
of Ezekiel Tilton, and John Tilton, late of Middletown, and of Clayton Tilton, late of 
Shrewsbury, were confiscated after the Revolution. 

1774, Mch. 25. A mortgage is on record at Freehold, given by Thomas and Francis 
Chadwick and their wives Elizabeth and Huldah, which shows that the land mortgaged 
was bounded on the east and south by Samuel Pintard and Clayton Tilton, on the west 
by a highway, and on the north by the North or Navesink River. 

Clayton Tilton had a brother John Tilton, who was also a Tory, and by some it 
has been supposed that they were brothers to the Deborah Tilton, born May 7, 1754; 
died June i, 1850, who married William White, of St. John, New Brunswick. But 
there would seem to be little more than conjecture to this. 

Clayton Tilton married, first, Catharine, daughter of Samuel and Almy (Borden) 
Scott; and, after her death, he married, July 30, 1805, Elizabeth, the widow of Thomas 
Green, of Musquash; died, Nov. 30, 1827, aged 64 years. 

"There was at Fort Howe (St. John, N. B.) in Garrison in 1808, a regiment which had been recruited 
largely out of the British prisons in the exigencies of the French War. It was the loist of the line, and 
was frequently referred to as the 'Hundred and Worst.' The officers were capable men but the rank and 
file were a hard lot. There were frequent floggings, and the Colonel said of his men that they were 'bad 
everything, except bad soldiers.' On the Battle field they were all right. 

Now for the tragedy. Henry Baldwin, James Lannon and Patrick McEvoy, privates in the loist 
regiment at Fort Howe, deserted Oct. 17, 1808. A party sent to Musquash in pursuit of them failed to 
find them. On the 23rd of Oct., the deserters called at the house of Ebenezer Scott, at Musquash, to 
inquire the way to Dipper Harbor. Clayton Tilton, living about two hundred yards from Scott's, con- 
cluded it his duty to arrest the deserters, and with two men, his own servant, Frederick Storm, and 
Burdett, his neighbor Scott's man, attempted to stop the deserters. In the attempt Clayton Tilton was 
shot and killed by Henry Baldwin with nis musket. The deserters then took to the woods and made 
their escape, but were captured some days afterwards on an island in Passamaquoddy Bay, on their way 
to the United States, by a party of the Charlotte County militia, and carried before a magistrate of that 
County, by whose order they were sent to St. John for trial. The prisoners were found guilty and sen- 
tenced to be executed. Patrick McEvoy was recommended by the jury for mercy, he being a youth 
between 18 and 19 years of age, and having taken no active part in the murder of Tilton; and his comrades 
having testified that he had been persuaded by them to desert. 

Baldwin and Lannon were hanged near the Block House Hill, corner of King and Wentworth Streets, 
on the 23rd November, just one month from the day the crime was committed. Justice was swift in 
those days. At the execution, the rope broke with each of the prisoners, and the unfortunate men had 
to remain standing under the gallows till the messenger went to the South Wharf (half a mile away) and 
returned with a new rope. Some few years since some street laborers, digging about the place, turned up 
some bones and fragments of red clotn to which military buttons were attached, evidently the remains 
of these two unfortunate fellows who were buried under the gallows."

214 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

Deeds on record at Freehold, N. J., show that one, Samuel Tilton, married Micah, 
daughter of Cyrenious Van Mater, prior to June 5, 1802, when they convey to her 
brother, William Van Mater, the life interest which was theirs in property that had been 
left to her son, Cyrenious V. Tilton, by his grandfather, after whom he was named. 
Cyrenious V. Tilton and his sister, Mary Tilton, were left a legacy by their aunt, Mary 
Van Mater, in her will of 18 13. It would seem as though they were of Middletown. 
And probably it was he whose name appears in the New York City Directories for 1834 
to 1839, as Cyreno Tilton, mariner, ^nd Tyreno Tilton, mate. 

In the burying ground of the Methodist Church, at Little Silver, N. J., are stones 
to the memory of Elizabeth Bennett, daughter of Samuel and Martha A. Bennett, and 
wife of Edward Tilton, and to their two infant children, Ida and Sammie Tilton. Eliza- 
beth (Bennett) Tilton was born Jan. 25, 1845, and died June 9, 1871. 

On record at Trenton, N. J., is the will of a Peter Tilton, supposed by some to have 
been 83, of Middlesex Co., N. J., dated the "twerieseventh day of September in 1794," 
which was proved before Anthony W. White, Surrogate of Middlesex Co., May 25, 
1 801, and letters issued to Robert Tilton and Robert Karson. In it he mentioned: 

Peter Tilton Smith, to whom he left a "walking cain with Ivery head." All the rest of his estate to 
his five children viz.: Elizabeth, Robert, Rebeckah, William and Lidia. Executors: son, Robert, and 
Robert Karson. Witnesses: John Smith, Sarah Nixon, Mary Smith. 

There were resident in Holmdel township in 1880, when the Census was taken, 
Benjamin Tilton, born 1843, ^^'^ Rebecca, his wife, born 1847, with their children, Elisa 
B., born 1869; Francis, born 1870; Joseph, born 1872; Alice, born 1875, and Ada born,

doubtless the mother of Benjamin Tilton.

WILLIAM TILTON, of Lynn, had at least two wives. By the first he had issue 

a son, Peter Tilton. He married again, one Susannah , who, upon his demise, 

married Roger Shaw, and moved with him to Hampton. This is well proven by the 
following assertion; that "Roger Shaw and last wife Susannah that Roger Shaw should 
give the children she had by her first husband, as follows, to Samuel Tilton, her eldest 
son, £30 at age. Samuel Tilton acknowledges receipt from Joseph Shaw, executor of 
Roger Shaw, June 12, 1661." Also Roger Shaw agreed to pay Daniel Tilton, son of 
William Tilton, of Lynn, deceased, £10. And Samuel Tilton, guardian of Daniel, 
acknowledges the receipt of same from Joseph Shaw, executor, Apr. 13, 1663. 

William Tilton was an old resident of Lynn, about 1640, and was then, apparently, 
somewhat advanced in years, for, in 1646, the Essex Court records state that William 
Tilton was freed from training but was to keep his arms fixed. And, again, in 1649, 
William Tilton was freed from training on account of his age. From this data I am 
inclined to deduce the birth of William as having occurred about 1580, and of his son 
Peter, approximately about 1605-10. Presuming these dates to be correct, the migra- 
tion of father and son probably took place not far from 1635. 

During his residence at Lynn, William Tilton was an appraiser of the estate of 
Abraham Belknap, in 1643; appraiser of the estate of Francis Lighttoot, in 1646, and 
administrator of the estate of Edward Lewis, in 1650. 

"In 1 86 1," writes Mr. William P. Tilton, of Boston, "my uncle had careful examina- 
tion made of the records in England, and again in 1873, ^Y great-uncle, General William 
S. Tilton, had an advertisement placed in the London Times, offering a reward of £5, 
for proof of the births and baptisms of William, Peter and John Tilton." No success 
followed these efforts. But data was obtained, shedding light upon the early English 
family bearing the name of Tilton. These extended references are in the possession of 
members of the New England family. Two items alone, of what I have seen, suggest 



220 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

any means of connecting the American with the English family, viz.: (a) "In 1639," 
writes William P. Tilton, "Rev. Ephraim Huet, the minister of a church in Wroxhall, 
Warwickshire, with several members of his church, among them Peter Tylton, settled 
in Dorchester, Mass., being prosecuted for non-conformity, by the Bishop of Worcester. 
Warwickshire is an adjoining county to Leicestershire, and Leicestershire is the original 

home of the Tiltons." , /-i , tt • ^o 

(b) "A quo warranto was issued by Charles 11, m 1683, agamst the Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts, in which he is styled Petru Tylton, Armiger." Vol. V., 
Mass. Col. Records, and Whitmores Heraldic Journal, p. 23. These serve to connect 
him with the family in Leicestershire.

first marriage, it was somewhat belated for his years. In 1659, he was of Hadley, Mass. 

Peter Tilton was a man of great prominence in New England; he was a Representa- 
tive to the General Court for many years, and an Assistant, for seven years. He was 
largely concerned with Mr. Rogers and Mr. Saltonstall, in concealing Goffe and Whalley, 
the Regicides, and was cited to appear before the British Parliament for befriending 
them, and it is supposed that one of them was buried in his garden. See Stiles' History

WALL 
OF 
MONMOUTH COUNTY 



1 WALTER WALL was born in 1619, and came to America from Wiltshire, Eng- 
-land, between the years 1 635-1 640. 

He, seemingly, was the Walter Wall, aged sixteen, transported to St. Christopher's, 
in 1635. Hottens List of Emigrants, p. 126. 

He was a resident of New Amsterdam for an uncertain period, and then joined in 
the settlement of Gravesend, L. L On the Town Record appear a number of allusions 
to him: 

1645, Aug. 10. He received a plantation. 

1654, Sept. 11. He purchased lot No. 14. 

1657. He had seven and one-half morgens of land in tillage in Gravesend. 

1658. Nov. 9. He purchased lot No. i. 

1659. Walter Wall named at Hempstead, L. L, Onderdonck" s Hempstead, p. 104, 
was doubtless the same individual. 

Ann Wall, alluded to below, I have not identified, but suspect she was the wife of 
Walter Wall, as he had one of that name. 

Sir Henry Moody vs Anthony Johnson Van Salee 

The complainant alleges that Johnson Van Salee came to his house and used abusive language. 
Annetje Wall testified that she was scouring pewter there and Johnson Van Salee asked her what she did 
there and commanded her to take it away, calling Sir Henry Moody, at the same time, a dog, a rogue and 
a "skellumme," (i. e. a scallywag — Dutch word), and abused her with evil language. The court fined 
the defendant 10 guilders, and enjoined him to behave better or fare worse. Gravesend Court Records. 
Quoted in the pamphlet on "Lady Deborah Moody," by Mr. Girard. 

1665. He was one of the Associate Patentees of the Monmouth Patent, and as 
such, paid £4. 

1666 or 1667. He moved to Middletown, N. J., and located upon a farm about two 
miles to the west of the center of the village, the title to which, in the early part of 1800, 
was vested in John Stout and Daniel D. Hendrickson. 

1667, Dec. 30. Walter Wall, of Middletown, N. J., was awarded lot No. 4; also lot 
No. 32, outside, in the Poplarfield.

in Middletown, N. J. 

1677. He paid on two hundred and forty acres in Shrewsbury, N. J. 
1679. He also paid quit-rents.

transferred to another, which he originally recorded, in 1668, in the Town Book, of Mid- 
dletown, N. J., as follows: "a half moone cutt out of the under side off both eares." 

1702, Sept. 26. This earmark was recorded to James Cox; 17 12, July 21, to Walter 
Wall, and in 179 1, to Cornelius Hendrickson.

6b Probably a daughter who married Thomas Cox, 2. 

William Leed's letter to Cox, written I think between 17 16 and 1736, says, referring 
to his rights in a dispute about the title of lands he held; "a little time after we came to 
Swiming River, Tho^ Wright and his wife died, and my father planted the land then as 
Wright had cleared and Jarrat Wall was in a pucker. He would arrest my father for a 
trespass, ay that he would, but Samuel Leonard met with him and showed him it was 
out of Stout's power to make a lawful title for any land at Swiming River, the 22 of 

June, 1676, and so Jarrat had done and we heard no more for several years, but at 

last it came into his head that he would get the articles of agreement or writing acknowl- 
edged and recorded and so let it lye " 

3 MARIA or MARY WALL, daughter of Walter Wall, i, is the person probably 
alluded to below. 

1663, June 12. "The corte having heard the difference between Walter Wall and Nathanyell Britton 
concerning Mary Wall cover [illegible] servant to Nathanyell Britton for two [illegible] years and complaint 
wase made to the courte of Gravesande but nothing coulde [illegible] be proved nether from the servante

this in the presence of Will Wilkins, John Cooke, Charles Morgan, Will Goulding, Clarke." 

Gravesend, L. I., Court Records. 

It is likely that Walter Wall had become a widower, and had bound out his daughter, 
Mary, a mere child, for her better bringing up, to Nathaniel Britton. 

4 JOHN WALL, son of Walter Wall, i, was, probably, born between 1640 and 
1650. 

1670. John Wall appeared in Middletown, N. J. 

As an Associate Patentee, in the purchase of the Monmouth Tract, he paid £3-10. 

By exclusion, I believe him to be a son of Walter Wall, i. 

5 JARRAT WALL, son of Walter Wall, i, was probably born between 1640 and 
1650, and resided in Middletown, N. J. 

1676, May 22. Gerard or Jarret Wall was a witness to a deed from the Indian chiefs 
to Richard Hartshorne. Book C, Deeds, p. 11, Freehold, N. J. Court Records. 

It is possible the first Jarret or Garret Wall may have had the Enghsh name, 
Gerard, transformed by the early settlers into the Dutch — Garret. 

1680, Apr. 21. He paid a quit-rent on one hundred acres of land, in Middletown, 
N.J. 

1682, Apr. 12. Garret Wall paid a quit-rent on one hundred and seventy acres of 
land, at Shoal Harbor Creek, Middletown, N. J. 

1684, Nov. 28. Garret Wall recorded his earmark. 

1685, June 5. He paid quit-rent on one hundred and seventy acres of land, on 
Manasquan River, Shrewsbury, N. J., which amounted to £0-7-1. 

He was quite prominent in Monmouth County: Petty Juryman in 1693; Receiver 
Taxes, January, 1697, and Foreman of the Grand Jury in 1699. 

1696. He recorded his brand-mark. 

1700-1701. He was among those who resisted the encroachments of the Pro- 
prietors; was arrested, but liberated by the people, from the Sheriff's custody, and, in 
1700, he aided in the rescue of prisoners, arrested for like offences. 

1709. Jarrat and Lydia Wall, [by her mark], deeded land to Daniel Hendrickson. 
Witness: Walter Wall. 

1715, May 5. His cattle and brand marks were conveyed to his son, John. 

Lidia, wife of Jarrat Wall, died Apr. 12, 1732. Baptist Church Record, Middle- 
town, N. J. She was a member of this church in 1712. 

171 1, Mch. 10. Jarrat Wall made his will, which was proved Nov. 10, 1711-12, 
and which mentioned his wife, Poolen, alias Lydia Wall, whom he made executrix, with 
John and Walter Wall, executors, and mentioned his children. 

The wife of Jarrat Wall, 5, was probably Pauline, daughter of Clement and Peula 
or Poulin Masters, of Shrewsbury, N. J. 

1675, Nov. 2. Clement and Poulin Masters had one hundred and twenty acres of 
land and meadow at Shrewsbury, N. J. 

1689. Thomas Wainwright, John West and Clement Masters were presented by 
the Grand Jury, at Shrewsbury, for "playing at nyne pins on ye ffirst day."

plea for "trespass." "Garret Wall for evidence sayeth the mare as he soposeth to be 
the mare he gave to his sister Rebecca, Richard Mount's wife, was the same mare," etc.

lowed an appeal to be taken by Johnston to the Court, at Amboy. 

7 JOHN WALL, son of Jarrat Wall, 5, was born circ. 1680-1685, and probably

228 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

17 MARY WALL, daughter of John Wall, 7. 

In the Dutch Reformed Church Records, Freehold, N. J ., are the following entires, 
which may refer to this Mary Wall. 

Niclaas Wykhof and wife Maria Waal had issue: 

Jacobus Wykhof baptized Jan. 1 1, 1738. Witnesses: Elias Covenhoven, etc. 

Jan Wykhof baptized May 16, 1742 

20 MARY WALL, daughter of Jarrat Wall, 8. , .„ . , 

Despite the assertion that this Mary Wall marned Lol. Ludlow, the following de- 
duction seems to me plausible. . ,,„,,.,,, 

Oct. 31, 1751. John Willet had a license issued to marry Mary Wall; they had a 
daughter, named Lydia, born Mch. 28, 1752, who married Samuel, son of Samuel and 
Mary (Passel) Tilton, and named one of their sons, Humphrey Tilton. Undoubtedly 
Humphrey was indebted for his name to the Wall family, as his mother Lydia if she were 
the daughter of Jarrat Wall, 20, as appears to have been the case, had a brother and 
an uncle Humphrey Wall. 

22 HUMPHREY WALL, son of Jarrat Wall, 8, was bom 1720; died, Apr. 11, 
1795, aged 74 years, 9 months and 28 days; marned, by hcense dated Mch. 6, 1765, 
Elizabeth Ogborn, who was born 1720, and died, Mch. 26, 1800, aged 79 years, 8 months 
and 9 days, or 79 years, 3 months and 3 days. He was murdered in Burlington County, 
and "Old Si" was hung for it. 

1773. He recorded his earmark, in Middletown, N. J. 

1763, Aug. 25. Humphrey Wall, of Monmouth County, had a license to marry 
Elizabeth Tilton, of Burlington County. She was Elizabeth Thome, widow of Abraham 
Tilton, and was born 3mo., 5, 1725. They had an only son son Joseph Wall from whom 
descended Wall, the New York baker. 

1780, November. Humphrey Wall was a member of the jury in Monmouth County.

Richard Burdge. 

"the age and death of our sister burdge. She was born y* 3 day of September 
1725, and departed this Life the 2 day of Feb. 1752." 

The dates do not agree exactly with those given on page 302, Vol. 2 of Historical 
Miscellany, but there can be no doubt whatsoever that we have, in the two entries, 
reference made to the one individual, viz.: Susannah Wall, the wife of Richard Burdge, 
and the curious thing about it is, that while there is a difference of two years between 
the epitaph and the Church record, for the date of her death, there is none at all as 
regards the date of her birth; hence the Church record should probably read 1754 
instead of 1752, and this is the more likely as the entries of various years in this record 
are oft times not clearly separated one from the other. 

In this connection it will perhaps be well to note another error, relating to Hannah 
the daughter of the preceding Susannah (Wall) Burdge. 

She is stated to have been born Feb. 15, 1744, and died Aug. 26, 1807, when she 
would have been 63, 6, 11, instead of 63, 7, 11.

WALL OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 233 

Capt. William Conover died, Oct. 27, 1829, aged 76 years, 3 months and 25 days. 
He was a Captain, in the Revolution, and grandson of Jacob Conover, who came from 
Long Island, in 1699. Mary Wall, his wife, died, Nov. 21, 1834, aged 67 years. Dutch 
Reformed Church-yard, Middletown, N. J. 

Walter and James Wall, reputed sons of Humphrey Wall, came from New Jersey, 
and settled on a neck of land, called "The Forks," lying between the Monongahela and 
the Youghiogheny Rivers, about sixteen miles South of Pittsburgh, in Alleghany County, 
Pa. For years this locality was known as The Jersey Settlement, by reason of its num- 
erous settlers from New Jersey, especially from Monmouth County. In 1769, after 
having cleared land and built houses, they brought their families. The records of these 
Walls were destroyed, by accident, many years ago, and I am strongly inclined to believe 
that instead of Walter and James Wall being the sons of Humphrey Wall, they were 
the children of James Wall, as appears from the following will: 

1750-51, Mch. 13; will proved Apr. 4, 1760, to which he made his mark. James 
Wall, sick, of Middlesex County, mentioned: 

wife; four daughters: Martha, Rebecca, Abigail and Neomia, each, £io; two sons, Walter and 
James, the residue of his estate. Ail of the children were minors. 
Executors: Friends, John and Joseph Story. 

Walter Wall married Alice, a sister to Benjamin Applegate.

the son of Garret Wall, who was the son of James Wall and that the last named James 
Wall emigrated from New Jersey in 1766, to Pennsylvania with his brother Walter 
Wall. It is possible that James Wall was No. 31 in this Wall History. 



WALLING 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY 



Upon the authority of Austin's Rhode Island Dictionary there was residing, as 
early as Jan. 22, 165 1, in Providence, R. I., a Thomas Walling, at which date Roger 
Williams, of Narragansett, writing to the town of Providence, probably alluding to him 
said "I understand that one of the orphans of our dear friend Daniel Abbot is likely (as 
she herself told me) to be disposed of in marriage. 'Tis true she has now come to some 
years, but who knows not what need the poor maid hath of your fatherly care, counsel 
and direction. I would not disparage the young man (for I hear he hath been labori- 
ous)," etc. He desired the town, however, to have some assurance that the young man 
will "forsake his former courses." Thomas Walling married, first, Mary Abbott, who 
died 1669; second Margaret White who first married Robert Colwell, by whom, in 1667, 
she was divorced and thereupon married June 19, 1669, Thomas Walling and following

WATSON 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY 

There were, apparently, two distinct families of this name, among the early settlers 
of Monmouth County, N. J. James Steen, Esq., a painstaking investigator, thinks 
differently, however, and inclines to the belief that Peter Watson's cousin, John, to 
whom he wrote, in August, 1684, urging his removal to East Jersey, is represented by 
Capt. Abraham Watson, of Middletown, who died 1756, which would make the two 
families of kin. I have never seen anything to sustain this belief. 

John Watson, the early settler in Monmouth County, had a previous residence in 
New York City, where he had his children baptised in the Dutch Church: 

1685, June 3. Jan Watson and wife, Sara, had Lysbeth baptized. Witnesses: 
Vincent Smith and Jannetie Jans. 

1688, Jan, 4. John Watson and wife, Sara Hidding, had Abraham baptized. Wit- 
nesses: Willem Estin and Grietje Kermer. 

Some time after this, he settled on the Bay Shore, in Monmouth County, where he 
died in 1708. 

"Changarores the 11''' June, 1708. 

Then appeared before me, Edward, Vi/count Cornbury, Captain General and 
Governor-in-Chief in & over the Province of New Jersey, New York, &c., Captain John 
Bowne, principal Creditor of John Watson, of Changarores, lately dec** & praying for 
administration," etc. 

Trenton Records. 

In Hottens List of Emigrants is mentioned "Abram Watson, 1635, at Gravesend, 
aet. 19," which I cite because of the name, but do not attempt to connect with the New 
Jersey Watsons. 

John Watson had, seemingly two wives; the first, Sara Hidding [Hedden?]; the 
second, Elizabeth Bockworth, a widow.

2 ELIZABETH WATSON, daughter of John Watson, i. 

In 1724, Elizabeth and John Watson were witnesses to the will of John Stout, of 
Middletown. Whether this Elizabeth Watson was the sister or wife of this John Wat- 
son, I am uninformed, but incline to the belief that she was his sister, and a daughter 
of John Watson, i. 

3 ABRAHAM WATSON, son of John Watson, i, was baptised, Jan. 4, 1688, in 
the Dutch Church, in New York City. 

His tombstone, in the defunct Presbyterian Churchyard, in Middletown, N. J., 
states that Capt. Abraham Watson died, in 1756, at the age of sixty-seven years. The 
discrepancies in dates, so commonly occurring in tombstone and bible records, are seen 
here. They were not infrequently simply an approximation. Again the computation 
may have been with the birth date in old style and the death date in new style. 

Capt. Abraham Watson is reputed to have had two wives, Mary and Eliza- 
beth , who was probably the Elizabeth Watson, whose marriage license, to Thomas 

Walling, of Middletown, was issued May 9, 1759. Thomas Walling also had been mar- 
ried, widowed, and was along in years like his future spouse. 

Abraham Watson was a sea captain of many years experience. He sailed the 
sloops, "John & Samuel," "Happy Margaret" and "Mary," from Perth Amboy, to and 
from Boston, Newport, and other ports, in the years 1723, 1724, 1725, 1726, 1729, 1730, 
1733, and 1734. In the last two years, he was accompanied by his son, John, whom he 
was doubtless training for a similar vocation.

WATSON OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 249 

In 1721, John Watson, evidently a sea captain, bore a letter from Thomas Paul, of 
Edinburgh, Scotland, to James Paul, his brother, residing in Middletown, N. J., and, 
in 1724, John Sout [Stout?], of Middletown, made his will to which John Watson and 
Elizabeth Watson affixed their signatures as witnesses. 

1730, Oct. 10. John Watson, William Bowne and James Bowne, Jr., were witnesses 
to the will of James Paul, miller, of Middletown, N. J., on this date. James Paul left 
all of his property to the four youngest children of Obadiah Bowne. The executors of 
the will were Jeremiah White and John, son of Obadiah Bowne. 

This John Watson I conceive is the supposed son, John Watson, above mentioned. 

He was, probably, the John Watson, ship-master, sailing his vessel from Perth 
Amboy, N. J. 

5 JOHN WATSON, son of Abraham Watson, 3, died prior to 1749, for, in that 
year, his widow, Hope, became the wife of John Burrows, of Middletown. She was 
born, Hope Taylor, in the year 1721 and died 1792, and was buried, in the yard of the 
defunct Presbyterian Church, Middletown, N. J., next to her second husband, John 
Burrows, and adjacent to her father-in-law, Capt. Abraham Watson. 

Tradition has it that Capt. John Watson, her husband, was drowned at sea, and I 
judge it was between 1747 and 1748. 

The following record is from an old Bible, owned by Mr. Asher Holmes, of Wicka- 
tunlc, N. J. Where the elipsis appears, the original record has become much worn

9 ABRAM WATSON, son of John Watson, 5, was born in 1747 and died in 1767. 

1756, Dec. 9. Abram Watson recorded the cattle-mark of his grandfather, Abram 
Watson, in the Middletown Town Book. At this date, he was but nine years of age 
and it was probably, entered by the order of his guardian. Later, this mark was con- 
veyed to John Burrows. 

1787. Samuel Dorset took oath that Sarah and Elizabeth were the granddaughters 
and only heirs of Capt. Abram Watson. 

The following memorandum probably refers to Abram Watson. 

Hope Burrows lost her only grown son. A letter, of great beauty of expression and 
pathos, written by her, was found, some years since, among the effects of Cyrus Bruen, 
whose daughter, Mrs. Charles H. Conover, of Marlboro, N. J., had it for some time. 
She loaned it to the late Judge Bennington H. Randolph, of Jersey City, who dying, 
it was lost, or mislaid, among his numerous papers. The substance and text of it, as 
recalled by Mrs. Conover, is: 

Today I have written thus that if in the future any of my children or grand children shall see this 

f)aper they will know the sufferings of my heart. This is the anniversary of the death of my son John 
Abraham?], who died at the house of his master, in New York," etc., etc. 

It is my impression that the son alluded to, was Abram Watson, her son by her first 
husband. The statement that he was at the house of his master, in New York, may have 
referred to a marine master, i. e. shipmaster or owner. 

The other Watson Family, in Monmouth County, descended from: 

1 PETER WATSON, probably a Scotchman, who came to Perth Amboy, August, 
1683, as an indentured servant, to serve four years. New Jersey Archives, Vol. /, p. 465. 

In 1686, Peter Watson and James Reid are mentioned, as part of the "stock," 
belonging to the Proprietors. New Jersey Archives, Vol. /, p. §12. 

In 1700, Peter Watson was in Monmouth County, where he, with other Scotchmen, 
bought land on Matawan Creek. 

Peter Watson was one of the founders of the "Old Scots," (now Tennent), Church. 

1708. He was one of the trustees of that church, and was the Rev. John Boyd's 
executor. 



WATSON OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 251 

1710, Aug. 14. Peter Watson bought land of W" Hoge, being the plantation and 
land where William Hoge then lived, together with stock, crops, goods and chattels, 
paying therefor £250. This land was one of the Wickatunk. lots, and was formerly 
John Reid's. The Hoge plantation remained in the Watson family until 1762, when it 
was deeded to Agnes (Watson) Freneau. It is still called The Freneau Place, and is at 
Freneau, N. J. 

17 1 5, May 3. Peter Watson bought land from John Johnson, near Lochiell's tract. 

1 71 5, May 18. Peter Watson,of Freehold, sold his share of land, on Matawan Creek,

Mch. 22, 1700, and Feb. 8, 1707. 

171 8, Jan. 3. Peter Watson bought land, on Millstone Brook, where the Indian 
Path crosses the Brook, from his son, Richard Watson, and Martha, his wife. 

Freehold Records, Lib. C, p. /68, Lib. E., pp. iji, 757 and jjg. 

1725/6. Peter Watson made his will, which was probated in 1727, and wherein 
he called himself of Middletown, and mentioned: 

wife, Agnes, (who was probably his second wife); sons, William, the eldest, Richard, Gawin, David, 
Peter; deceased. 

Agnes Watson, widow of Peter Watson, dying in 1728, left all of her property 
away from the Watson family and among her friends and relatives, hence it does not 
seem as if she were the mother of Peter Watson's children. It seems as if his first wife's 
name might have been Euphemia, as his four sons each had a daughter by that name. 
James Steen, Esq., of Eatontown, N. J., states, positively, that Peter Watson married 
the daughter of Alexander Napier, who, in his will dated Feb. 7, 1744, speaks of grand- 
children: — David, Margaret, Agnes and Elizabeth Watson, but as these names do not 
correspond with the names of the children mentioned in Peter Watson's will, and as the 
dates of the wills are so far apart, I am inclined to think that it was Peter Watson's 
son, David, who married Napier.

WHITE* 

OF 

NEW JERSEY 



It was previously assumed that Thomas White, the immigrant, was the father of 
Samuel White and of Peter White, and grandfather of Thomas White and of Samuel 
White, who married Elizabeth Wardell, and of Amos White, the first mentioned Samuel 
White being the father of these three sons. This was deemed to be the relationship 
between the different individuals mentioned, because real estate that had been acquired 
by the elder Samuel, as oldest son of Thomas, the immigrant, is found in the possession 
of the second Thomas, and presumably it could only have gotten there by the law of 
primogeniture. In reality the law referred to was strictly carried out, but, through the 
death of the son Joel White born to Samuel White, the property next went to Thomas 
White as brother and not son of Samuel White. 

There is no proof whatever that there were two Samuels, the one of the second 
generation having been the father of that Samuel who married Elizabeth Wardell. In 
fact, the evidence at hand, and particularly the expression made use of in the will of 
Peter White, appointing "cousins Samuel VVhite and Thomas White as supervisors and 
assistants to their Aunt," requires that we regard Thomas White, the immigrant and 
Peter White as brothers. 

Who the parents of these men were we do not know.

2 THOMAS WHITE, brother to Peter White, 3, was a carpenter, and bought

He made their genealogy his intensive study. The addition of my own White data to Mr. Hance's has resulted in this volummous

27 LEAH WHITE, daughter of Thomas White, 6, born 1688, according to a 
pamphlet giving the Tucker genealogy. This is probably based upon a mistaken read- 
ing of the Quaker records of Shrewsbury, that says she died, 2mo. (Feb.) 18, 1767, aged 
78 years, which properly deciphered is 73 not 78 years. This would have made her 
birth to have occurred about 1694. She marned, first, about 1713, (Samuel?), son of 
WiUiam Wilbur, born Feb. 17, 1691; died between 1714 and 1717; second, Oct. 3, 1717, 
James, son of John and Ruth (Woolley) Tucker, born Aug. 27, 1691; died Sep. 29, 1776. 

Thomas White and James Tucker were among the first settlers along the seashore, 
of the place that is now called Deal, N. J., and it is said that it got its name from the 
fact that the Whites came from Deal, Kent Co., England; likewise from the Tuckers 
having come from the same place. At any rate the Tuckers seem to have had an estate 
here in New Jersey three times as large as that of the Whites, the one having perhaps 
twenty-five hundred acres to the others eight hundred. And, further, the name was 
applied to the place at an earlier date than would appear to correspond with the coming 
of the Tuckers from New England to New Jersey, there being a deed on record at Tren- 
ton, dated May 12, 1683, in which "Thomas Potter, of Deale, near Shrowesbury, N. J., 
planter," conveys land in Fenwick's Colony to an inhabitant of Rhode Island.

31 LEVI WHITE, son of Thomas White, 6, died 1784; married, (Mch. 13?), 
1733, Ann, probably the daughter of Robert Lippincott. First, as regards the date of 
her marriage, and then about her parentage. The records of the Quakers, at Shrews- 
bury, state that Levi White and Ann Lippincott were married, imo., 13, 1733, which, 
according to the chronology of that time, would be March and not January. But the 
minutes of the Mens' Monthly Meeting distinctly declare that their first intentions 
were published, gmo. (Nov.), 5, 1733; their second intentions, lomo. (Dec.) 3, 1733, 
and that the committee reported, iimo. (Jan.), 7, 1733, that they had been married in 
an orderly manner. Hence it is evident that their marriage occurred at an earlier date 
than the records give them credit for, although in the latter part of the year 1733. 

These same records also show the following entry: "Thomas & Christian White's 
son, George White, married Ann, daughter of John Lippincott, whose son Benjamin 
White, born 12 ["4" in lead pencil] of i2mo., 1755;" etc., etc. 

This Benjamin White wrote a memorial of his life, in which he states that he was 
"born on the 4th day of the 12th months 1755. My father George White son of Thomas 



266 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

and Christian White, my Mother Anna, daughter of John Lippincott she dying when I 
was voung, I have but a slight remembrance of her." 

'lainly the correction in the records for the birth of Benjamin was made from the 
manuscript. But the confusion arising from the making of the same woman to have been 
the wife of two different men must be accounted for on other grounds. It has been stated 
in the genealogy of the Lippincotts that Levi White married Anne the daughter of John 
and Sarah (Huet) Lippincott; and it has been declared by more than one genealogist 
that it was George White, son of Thomas and Christian, who married this same Anne 

Lippincott. T • XT 1 

To my mind there is no doubt that George, and not Levi, White married Ann, the 
daughter of John and Sarah (Huet) Lippincott, because her own grandson, Benjamin 
White, 98, says she was John's daughter; because George and Ann White name their 
oldest children, John and Sarah, after the maternal grandparents; and because she would 
have been only fourteen years of age at the time of her marriage to Levi, if we accept 
the date as given in the Quaker Records, having, as they, show, been born iimo., 5, 
1719/20.* Furthermore, the signatures of John, Thomas and Jacob Lippincott, as wit- 
nesses, when Levi and Ann were married, can be readily accounted for as those of her 
uncle and his two sons, if we suppose her to have been the daughter of Robert Lippincott, 
mentioned but not named in the will of her grandfather, John Lippincott, whose wife was 
Ann (Barber), after whom each of these granddaughters received the name of Ann. This 
John Lippincott, the grandfather, refers to her as "the daughter of my deceased son, 
Robert Lippincott." 

1784, Aug. 4. Will of Levi White, of Shrewsbury; proved Sep. 13, 1784, mentioned:

were interlined, without any indication as to where they belonged. 

Person* 
to you 

I Reside in the Town of Freehold N.* J.* Mo. Co. N. J. I am -j^l^, years old was 
Born & have always Lived in this County & State: my Great Grand Father Fleming was a General in 
the Revolutionary war with* Great* Britam* Flemington Co. Seat of Hunterdon Co. was named after him 
My Grand Father Jacob Fleming was a captain* Lieutenant 1776 in War of 18 12 a Farmer in this Co. 
Died in 18 19 his brother Stephen was a Captain my Father a son of Jacob Fleming was a Farmer in this

Land at & near Long Branch N. J. my Mother died 1829 Leaving me a minor age 13 years I am a

It is difficult, if not impossible, rightly to assign the dates of death as given in this 
document. It was not Joseph White who died in 18 12, for his daughter Elizabeth Van 
Pelt is giving a deed for her share in his property in 1799. It was not the date of death 
of Lydia, the daughter of Joseph, for she died in 1829. Nor am I at all confident that 
the date 18 19 belongs with Jacob Fleming, it might just as well apply to Stephen from

1796, Aug. 23. Peter White and Patience, his wife, convey to Hannah Lippincott, 
widow, and Lydia White, single woman, land that was situated on the Rumson Highway, 
and also on the Highway from that to the North River, which was evidently the same

*A careful and painstaking comparison of the names signed as witnesses to the marriage of Amos White and AnnVVhite 
shows, quite completely, to my mind, at least, that Amos White was the son of Peter and Patience White, and Ann White was 
probably the daughter of Joseph, 78, and Sarah (Parker) White. In this way the signatures immediately following those of the 
bride and groom would be accounted for as: 

Sarah White, the mother of the bride. 

Patience White, the mother of the groom. 

Lydia White, the sister of the bride, who later on married Joseph Fleming. 

Hannah White, the sister of the groom, eighteen years old.

I am unable to place this last mentioned John White, but it seems very probably 
that he was identical with the John White, "sawyer," mentioned in deeds below. 

1800, Apr. 10. Simeon Babcock and Jane, his wife, convey thirty-four and forty- 
two hundredths acres of land on Jumping Brook to John Lippincott, whichwas bounded 
on the south by lands of the said John White, and on the east by lands of Charity, the 
wife of James Tallman, Jr., and daughter of Jacob White, (67). 

1800, Aug. II. Richard Wikoff and Hannah, his wife, she having been one of the 
daughters of Jacob White, (67), late of Shrewsbury, convey seventy-five acres o\ land, 
to John White, of Shrewsbury, bounded east by James Tallman, south by Thomas 
White, (63), west on Jumping Brook, and north by John Lippincott. This tract was 



300 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

the one referred to in the previous deed given by Simeon Babcock, although of an earlier 
date, and was deeded by John White, "sawyer," and Mary, his wife, to Jonathan 
Youmans, June3, 1813. 

John White, "sawyer," and Mary, his wife, convey, at this same time, another 
tract of land to Jonathan Youmans, of five acres, which adjoined the first, to which he 
claimed title by deed of sale from Thomas White, dated Mch. 20, 1797, but which is not 
on record. The beginning point of this five acre tract was "in the Forge Pond, forty- 
four links north of the middle of the bridge that crosses the flood gates;" thence the line 
ran to "a small run or swamp that puts into Jumping Brook," and down the swamp to 
the brook. Two of the courses, together with their distances, coincide with what can be 
found in a deed for one hundred and eighty-six acres, from Thomas Stillwell and Phebe, 
his wife, to Abraham Van Dyke, he claiming title by virtue of a deed which, likewise, is 
unrecorded, from Thomas White, {63). This tract is described as being in Shrewsbury, 
on the east side of Jumping Brook, beginning "about seven chains below the saw mill of 
John White's and Daniel White's on Jumping Brook, at the mouth of a small run that 
empties in said brook, it being the corner of John White's lot that he purchased of 
Thomas White." It may be that Daniel White in the above description is a mistake 
for Amos White, for, once in the body of the deed there is certainly such a mistake made, 
and twice the name Amos is used properly. , . . . . 

1804, Mch. 31. Peter Knott and Lydia, his wife, convey fourteen and one-quarter 
acres of land, at Poplar Swamp, to John White and Jacob White; grantors claiming 
title by virtue of a deed from Anthony Woolley and Sarah, his wife, dated, April 1790. 

1 8 12, May 11. John T. White (112) and Mary, his wife, convey fifty-one acres of 
land to John White, "sawyer," which John White "sawyer," deeds to Thomas Rosell,

1 8 13, Apr. 5. John White, "sawyer," and Mary, his wife, convey a part of the tract

mention of his wife, Mary, and appointed Jacob Woolley and Daniel Williams as his 
executors. Witnessed by John W. Woolley, Edmund Robinson and John Woolley, Jr. 

1822, January Term of the Orphans Court. Settlement of the account of Jacob 
Woolley and Daniel Williams, executors of the estate of Jacob White, deceased.

312 EDWARD WHITE, son of Thomas White, 224, The Lippincott manuscript 
in the Historical Society's Library, at Philadelphia, makes the assertion that Benjamin 
White, No. 117, had two sons named Edward and James. If such were the case, they 
do not join with the daughters of Benjamin in conveying property after the deaths of 
Benjamin and his wife, Abigail. And without proof to the contrary, it would seem as 
if they had been confused with two of the sons of Thomas White, No. 224, although some 
evidence can Be procured to sustain the view that the Lippincott manuscript is correct. 
As, for instance, Mr. James Edward Borden, of Eatontown, N. J., the last remaining 
Quaker of the Shrewsbury Meeting, says that he can recollect an Edward White, who 
died unmarried, and was probably a nephew of Jacob White, No. 115. While Mr. Isaac 
C. Kennedy, a lawyer of Asbury Park, states distinctly that Edward White was a son 
of Benjamin White, No. 117. Still another old resident of that section of the country, 
"who knew Edward White's father well," says the father's name was Benjamin, and 
that he owned property at Deal. He likewise says that the James T. White, No. 311, 
who owned the property on which Joseph Truax was living in 1902, came from Burling- 
ton Co., (as was actually the case), and returned there after his father's death; and that 
the family to which he belonged was a branch of the Deal family. 

1828, July 4. Edward White, of Hanover township, Burlington Co., deeds to 
James T. White, without giving any full description, "all my share in a lot of land in 
Shrewsbury township, that belonged formerly to my father Thomas, deceased." 

1836, Sep. I. Edward White conveys to John Ireland seventeen acres of land ad- 
joining Jacob White, the Ocean, Jacob Corlies and Codies Pond. 

1836, Oct. 22. Edward White conveys to William Wright, three acres of woodland, 
adjoining the County Poor House land, near Shark River. 

1838, Jan. 23. Edward White conveys to William White nine acres that adjoined 
the last mentioned tract of woodland.

1 Internal evidence, in the will of Robert White, seems to be sufficient to assure us 
that he was the father of the Robert White, 2, who went to Monmouth County. And 
from the occurrence of the name of Peter among his sons, it has been thought that he was 
closely related to the Peter and Thomas White, brothers, whose descendants are enumer- 
ated in the foregoing pages. 

All the knowledge I have been able to obtain of him is contained in the record of his 
will, as printed by the New York Historical Society, Volume i,Page 283. 

1696/7, Feb. 2. Will of Robert White, Sr., of New York, joiner, mentioned: 
eldest son, Robert White; sons, Peter and John, each to have one-half his working tools. Executors: 
wife, Elizabeth, and Mr. William Bickley, merchant. 

Major Bickley, in his will, dated Aug. 27, 1716, and proved June 17, 1724, refers to 
his wife, Elizabeth, and leaves one-half of his New Jersey property to Elizabeth White, 
Jr., "whom my wife hath brought up and will continue with us."

Jacomyntje Van Rollegon; second, Aug. 31, 1694, Frances Stanley. 

1684/5, Feb. 4. The inventory of the estate of Thomas White, of Monmouth Co., 
shows his estate as a debtor to Robert White as of this date, the debt having been paid 
sometime between 1684 and 1686, by Samuel White, the son and administrator of 
Thomas. Possibly this was Robert White, i, but it would seem more likely to have 
been his son, as he is known to have taken a wife in Monmouth County. 



312 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

The Reformed Dutch Church records, of New York City, state that: 

Robert White, young man, of London, England, married, Nov. 28, 1690 Jacomyntje Van RoUegon, 
young maiden, of New York; and also that their child Elizabeth, was baptised July i, 1691. 

The New Jersey Historical Society have, in their Library, at Newark, as presented 
to them by Charles S. Boggs, of the United States Navy, the original license issued for 
the marriage of this Robert White to his second wife, which differs in a remarkable way 
from the record of the marriage itself. The license has the names : 

Robert White, "joyner," of New York, and Frances Stanley, of Province of East Jersey, have license 
dated Aug. 29, 1694. 

In Book "B" of the record of Deeds at Freehold, N. J., is to be found the following: 

"These are to certifie all whom it may concern, that on this the last day of August, Anno one thous- 
and six hundred ninety and four, Robert White, of the city of New York, and Frances Wales,* of the 
Province aforesaid, was lawfully Joyned in holy-Wedlock, and this to be their sufficient Testimonial]. 
Given from under my hand at Tinton Manors this day and date hereof. Signed L. Morris." 

1694, the last day of August 1694, at Trenton Manor, Mary White married to John 
French. The date for this marriage is given as Oct. 21, 1694, in the Supplementary List 
of Marriage Licenses, issued by the State Library Bulletin, in April, 1898. But the 
earlier date, occurring on the same day and at the same place as when Robert White 
was married, is found on the records at Freehold. 

1695, July 21. Elizabeth, daughter of "Robert White and Frankje Sandery," bap- 
tised. Tryntje RoUegon as a witness. 

1697, Apr. 25. The Reformed Dutch Church of New York gives the record of the 
baptism of Jaquemyntje White, daughter of Francina Standing, with Bartholomeus La 
Roux** and Tryntje RoUegon as witnesses.

13 Stanley White 



•There is no doubt that the wife of Robert White, (2), was Frances Stanley, and not Frances Wales; of this there is a super- 
abundance of proof. It has been suggested that the Monmouth Co. record of this marriage was meant to read Frances Stanley, of 
Wales. Though we have some knowledge of the Stanleys in Monmouth Co., there is no proof of their Welsh origin, but to the 
contrary, the name, Stanley, is probably English. 

**A baptism of Nov. i, 1691, shows that Bartholomew La Roux married Gertrude Van RoUegon.

13 STANLEY WHITE, son of Robert White, 2. But very little evidence is 
afforded for the existence of Stanley White and his place here in this pedigree. His name 
alone is sufficient to show his parentage. And his signature has been found upon receipts 
in the possession of the late James Steen, Esq., of Eatontown, N. J., of about 1730, one 
being for the year 173 1, whereon the name of Daniel Lippincott also appears, who was, 
I surmise, his brother-in-law. It was the mother of this Daniel Lippincott who refers 
to her grandchildren in her will as Vincent and George White. 

1745, 9mo., 12. Will of Elizabeth Brinley; proved June 7, 1748. She signed it by 
her mark, and was the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Allen) Williams, and widow of 
Preserve Lippincott, marrying as his second wife, Sep. 19, 1739, William Brinley. In 
this will she refers to: 

my grandsons, Vincent and George White, as not yet twenty-one years of age, and left to them all 
money due me from Thomas Holmes on his bond, and also the interest of the same. If they both died 
the above legacy was to go to the children of my son, Daniel Lippincott; Vincent White was to have a 
chest marked "V.W."; to grand-daughters, Elisab"". Audrea and Anne Lippincott, the clothes- that I had 
before I married William Brinley. While Elizabeth was to have my Great Bible, Audrea was to get the

White, deceased." January Term of Orphans Court, 1791.

39 PHILIP WHITE, son of Peter White, 21. Killed in the War of the Revolu- 
tion, Mch. 30, 1782, by a party of the British Light Horse Cavalry. Married, first, 

; second, Oct. 29, 1773, Jane Miers, born Dec. 14, 1755; she married, second, 

Mr. Irons, and third, Mr. Devan. 

Alfred Smith, a great-grandson of Jane Miers, by her third marriage, had in his 
possession, in 1882, the certificate of her marriage to Philip White, which he had found 
among his father's papers. It reads as follows: 

"Jane Myer was born the fourteenth Day of December in the year 1775- " 

"This may Certifie all such as it may Concern that Philip White & Jane Miers have been Lafully 
loined in holy Matrimony by me October y* 29 1773 

(Signed) Charles Macknight." 

The Reverend Charles Mac Knight was pastor of the Presbyterian Church, in 



322 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

Shrewsbury, about the time of this marriage. But the early records of that Church 
have been destroyed or lost for many years. 

Mr. Smith had also in his possession a paper that gave the dates of birth of the two 
children of Philip White, as given beyond. 

1782, Apr. 20. Letters of administration on the estate of Philip White, of New 
York, joiner, who died intestate, granted to his brother, William White. 

New York Historical Society, Wills, Vol. 9, page 324. 

According to Sabine's History of the Loyalists, George Taylor Dennison, Jr., tried 
to make Philip White to have been a son of Amos (No. 25) and Esther (Tilton-Borden) 
White. But there is not a particle of evidence to show that this couple had any child 
by what was a second marriage on the part of each of them. And other reasons showing 
Mr. Dennison's mistake have been set forth by the Reverend William White Hance in 
an article he published in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, for July, 
1905. 

In hunting over some old newspapers for the time, the following was obtained from 
a copy of the Pennsylvania Journal, of the date of May i, 1782: 

"The circumstances attending the death of the above mentioned Philip White were as follows: On 
Saturday the 30th of March last, he was surprised by a party of our people, and after he had laid down his 
arms, in token of surrendering himself a prisoner, he again took up his musket and killed a son of Col. 
Hendrickson: he was however taken by our light horse, and on his way from Colt's Neck to Freehold, 
where they were conducting him, he again attempted to make his escape from the guard, who called on 
him several times to surrender, but he continued running, often crossed and recrossed by the light horse, 
and desired to stop, and finally, when leaping into a bog, impassable by the horse, he received a stroke 
in the head by a sword, which killed him instantly. The above facts have not only been proved by the 
affidavits of our friends who were present, but by the voluntary and candid testimony of one Aaron 
White, who was taken prisoner with the said Philip." 

From Library of Pennsylvania Historical Society, in Philadelphia. Abstracts of 
letters from George Taylor Dennison to Jas. S. Lippincott. 

February 21, 1880. 
"I have gathered some further information since I wrote you last From an old draft of a peti- 
tion to the Lieut. Gov. of Canada, I find that Mrs. Lippincott's father was a magistrate before the war, 

and died before the war commenced I may say that Mrs. Lippincott was a near relative of Philip 

White and Alexander White for we have an old book in our family which belonged to Alexander White 
brother of Philip we believe — but the tradition in our family is that Philip White was a near relative of 
Captain or Mrs. Lippincott — a cousin or step brother — perhaps this may aid you somewhat. 

I have unearthed two old letters from Mrs. Lippincott to her husband when he was in England in 

1787 and 1788. From these letters it appears without doubt that they came from Shrewsbury. Mrs. 
Lippincott speaks of having received two letters from Shrewsbury, one from Sally Wardell and one from 
Sally De bow — both asking her to spend the winter with them — She also refers to one J. Knight and also 
of Joseph Parker who had gone to Shrewsbury to spend the winter and who had promised Mrs. Lippincott 
to call upon her friends there. She also appears to have had a sister in Shrewsbury. 

(Signed) George T. Denison." 

8th May, 1880. 

"My cousin Richard Lippincott Dennison has the old family Bible which belonged to the Captain 
— I think in fact that the Bible was Mrs. Lippincott's. Brittain Woolley was nearly related to us. Also 
a Mrs. Thompson who married a Captain Van Allen who used to run a Lake Erie Steamboat. Her 
brother Mr. Ben Thompson, of St. Paul, Minnesota, is also a near relative. 

In 1867 I met a Mr. Lippincott [this must have been Charles A. Lippincott, son of Amelia, who died 
very aged] who^ told me he had often heard his mother speaking of Captain Lippincott. I afterwards 
saw his mother's tombstone in Shrewsbury Churchyard which states that she died about thirty years 
ago aged over 90 years old."

1857; married, June 7, 1779, Deborah Tilton, born May 7, 1754; died June i, 1850. 

Fighting on the Loyalist side during the Revolutionary War, he afterwards went to 
Canada and settled at what is now St, John, New Brunswick, then called Parr Town. 

In 1825, William and John White, as executors of "their brother" John's estate, 
obtained order from the Court in Monmouth Co., to sell some of his real estate in order 
to pay his debts. 

It is not known who were the parents of Deborah Tilton, his wife, but some things 
would seem to indicate that she was a sister of the brothers, John and Clayton Tilton, 
Loyalists, also of New Brunswick, Canada. 

The list of their children and later descendants has been taken from a History of 
the White Family, published for private distribution, in 1906, by Mr. James E. White, 
one of the grandsons of William White.

I believe that the following Robert White was a son of Robert White, 10, and grand- 
son of Robert White, 2, and Frances (Stanley), his wife. But I have nothing to show 
in corroboration; and I have also under the miscellaneous notes suggested that Robert, 
the son of Robert White, 10, was the father of another group of children. Which of 
these deductions is correct it is impossible to tell. 

1 ROBERT WHITE married Margaret, daughter of Hugh and Catharine (Tilton) 
Hartshorne. He was alive Oct. 10, 1773, when his son, Hartshorne, made his will.

of one Robert White committed suicide.

the beginning point. East Jersey Records, at Perth Amboy. 

1765, 5mo., 18. Will of Catharine Hartshorne, of Middletown, widow of Hugh 
Hartshorne; proved Sep. 30, 1767. gave a legacy of 2,S shillings a year to her grand- 
daughter, Margaret White, the daughter of Robert White and "my daughter Margaret, 
deceased;" and mentioned other children of the said Margaret as Richard, Deborah and 
Frances. 

1786, Mch. 15. Sarah Tole, widow of Richard Tole, conveys land to Robert White, 
"trader," which was bounded on the east by the Highway from the Church to Red 
Bank. Freehold Deeds,'' I '\ page 190.

beginning at the southwest corner of lands of Joseph Price, deceased, on the east side 
of the Highway from the Quaker Meeting House to Red Bank, in what is usually called 
the Great Bog. Freehold Deeds ^ "P"., page 418. 

1800, July 29. William G. Bennett and Mary, his wife, Mary Bennett, his mother,

Whereas information has been received of the decease of James White, formerly of New Jersey but 
late of North Carolina, that said James White devised his estate to William McMurray, of New Jersey, 
and to his heirs on the body of Elizabeth White, sister to the said James White and wife* to said William 
McMurray, and whereas both William and Elizabeth McMurray died leaving no issue, we the sub- 
scribers or the township of Lower Freehold, who are some of the oldest settlers of said place now living, 
have been applied to by Robert White, a brother of said James, for a certificate relative to his father's 
family with whom we were acquainted, do hereby certify that said Robert is eldest son of Robert White, 
deceased, who had several children, to wit, Robert, John, Bryant, William, James, Elizabeth and Catha- 
rine White, and that we believe the said Robert White to be at this time the only survivor of the said 
family, also that he is the sole heir at law to the estate of aforesaid brother James White.

The following record was written by Benjamin White, 98, about the year 1825, and 
was copied for Mrs. George Hance, in October, 1865, by Henry F. Spaulding, from which 
copy a transcription was taken, in August, 1899, ^"d this is a copy of such transcription. 
Since it was taken both the original and the copy have disappeared, and, on inquiry 
being made for the transcription where it was supposed to be, that also was found to 
have followed suit and become invisible. 

Benjamin White lived in what is now the Presbyterian parsonage, in Shrewsbury, 
a large part of which he built, as is set forth in these papers. He was a Quaker, and was 
familiarly known as "Book Muslin Bennie." The record of births, marriages and deaths, 
subsequent to his own death, were added, it is believed, by Mr. Spaulding, from his 
own memoranda. 

A Memorial and Record of the Life of 

BENJAMIN WHITE, 

from His Childhood to Old Age, Written 

BY Himself. 

Shrewsbury, N. J. 

I have been thinking for some time of leaving for my children, a short sketch of my life from early 
youth until the evening of my life. That they may see the great goodness of a kind providence and how 



WHITE OF NEW JERSEY 381 




mo. I755- i^iy ratner oeorge vvnue son or i nomas anu \^nnstian vvnite, my Mother Anna dauahter of 
John Lippincott she dying when I was young, I have but a slight remembrance of her. At her death she 
left in my father's care (7) seven children the youngest twins: Viz., John, Sarah, Thomas, Robert Benja- 
min, Joseph and William. The last two were about nine months old. My father had a great care on his 
hands to provide for this family of small children. He lived a widower the remainder of his life. Mv 
dear father met with a serious accident, which I think shortened his life. He went up in the store house 
chamber for something and returning he fell from the top step in the stairs to the bottom across a half- 
bushel which hurt him very much from which he never recovered. When he was dying he requested that 
all his children should be at his bedside, he gave us all good advice taking one at a time by the hand, 
beginning at the eldest and so on down to the youngest. I can remember some of his words while hold 
of my hand — Benjamin, he said, farewell — be a good boy and do not run about on first days. We all 
then went out of the room weeping in tears for our dear father. My aunt informed me since that he 
requested them not to weep for him for he was going to a place of rest he said he saw the angels around 
him as white as snow and I believe he is now in the realms of bliss I hope I may be prepared to meet him. 
We were now left without either father or mother our things were sold at Vendue which last three days. 
I then went to live with my uncle John White, and went to school a short time after which I worked on 
the farm for my uncle Thomas White where I remained till I went to learn the tailors trade of Abel Middle- 
ton, Crosswicks. He also kept a store and made too free use of ardent spirits which made him neglect 
both trade and store. I had to come once a year to see my friends in Shrewsbury. My time was most of 
it spent in working on his farm and I had a small prospect of learning my trade. After a while I went to 
work with Jacob Cook to obtain an insight of the tailoring business. After that I applied to Edward 
Weaver of Jacob Town, and bound myself by an Indenture until I was twenty one years of age. I 
remained with him untill he was taken sick with consumption which was some years — he went to live with 
his sister at Colestown, and I went at journey work with Thomas Bliss of Bordentown. I afterwards 
heard that my master was near the close of life, I went to him at Jacobstown, and found the price he asked 
for my time. I took the money I had earned at Bordentown and of a friend, gave my note for the balance 
and paid my master for my time. I then returned went to work earned anough to pay off my note and 
then worked with Levi Budd at the new Miles until I had an offer to go to, Philadelphia where I remained 
for some time — until I was taken very sick and had to leave the city and returned to West Jersey, and 
boarded with my old mistress Polly Middleton, where I remained for some time in very poor health — 
was reduced very low, My friends thought dropsy or consumption would be my end. I was recommended 
to drink cheese whey, which I did and made the Cheese curd my diet. In a short time thereafter through 
the kind providence of God my health returned. After which I returned to Philadelphia, and then went 
to New York to see my brothers John and Robert. I also thought I would visit my relatives and friends 
in Shrewsbury. I came on a boat with Capt. Wardell and Slocum, in company with Peter Parker old 
Joseph Allen and Thomas Seebrook the wind north east and snowed a little the sea rolled heavily and 
one time we thought we shold all be lost, after much labor we passed safely into the River I have often 
admired the goodness of a kind Providence — our lives from a watery grave — the night was dark and there 
was ice in the river and with much labor we broke our way through the ice until we reached the shore. 
Soon after that I was gunning after ducks down the river in company with a boy a very cold day our boat 
drifted from us we were left on the sedges and came near perishmg with cold. After my visit m Shrews- 
bury I returned to Philadelphia and worked at my trade till the sound of war. I then went to New 
York and worked Journey work with my brother Robert. We had a room and kept Batchelor's hall, 
our furniture was a bed, chest, 1 cups and 2 spoons, our provisions we kept in the chest. Brother Robert 
was cook and I went to market we made ourselves as happy as we could we had to depend on our labor 
for our living and to save time he done the cooking nights, ne met with a misfortune spraint his ankle and 
had to lay up for some time — how long we might have continued in this way is uncertain if the war had 
not progressed as I shall mention hereafter. As I lay in bed one night I heard the firing of large guns. I 
immediately arose and went into the city and found the people in great confusion, drums beat to Arms. 
The ship, Asia was laying off in the river firing upon the town. The people were removing the large guns 
from the Battery and I had hold and helped move them nothing now but war preparations going on some 
moved out of town, business was on a ciecline, we soon broke up housekeeping and I took the stage for 
Crosswicks boarded with my old mistress and followed my trade. Being often fined for not doing military 
duty I left and came to Shrewsbury, and went to making salt by boiling seawater — did not answer— I 
returned to West Jersey continued my trade until the battle of Trenton when Gen. Washington with his 
army crossed the Delaware River, took the Hessians at the battle of Princeton, Gen. Putnam and Mifflin's 



382 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

head-quarters was with my old mistress where I boarded and every one must do something either go the 
British, to Jaile, or join the American Army. They were in want of forages for their horses and wanted 
some one well acquainted with the farmers, where the British had not been. I told Gen. Putnam, if he 
would give from under his hand that the teams should not be prized, I would procure them plenty, which 
he did and I bought hay, corn, cheese, &c. and sold it to the Army so when the Army moved to Princeton 
I was appointed Wagon Master, and remained with the Army for some time, I drew Captain's pay had 
my horse saddled always ready for an alarm or marching orders. Everey morning I hacl all the brigade 
of Wagons drove up, and sent some for wood, some for hay, gram &c. The carters must have my written 
order or they could not obtain either provisions for themselves or feed for their horses. While in the 
army I tried to be useful both to the Army and to the farmers in returning property unlawfully taken, 
being at Stoney Brook Samuel Worth informed me that his team had been prized and he never expected 
to see it again had been gone some rime in the way for Morristown. I obtained the team and sent it to 
the owner. I also helped Isaac Field obtain his horse. I went with him from Bristol to Burlington with 
a military guard. None could cross the ferry unless in the service of the Army neither the wagon or horse 
could have been obtained if I had not been respected by the officers in the Army. Samuel Worth above 
menrioned was a brother to Mary Middleton my old mistress. As soon as I could I left the Army, and 
presented my cerrificate for services as Wagon Master in the Army, and I drew Continental Money. 
After a short rime I returned to my native soil, Shrewsbury, with but little money as to value, it being 
Continental and old Jersey money. I went to work at my trade. My brother Robert worked at disrilJing 
in Partnership with Robert Bown. After some time a French fleet came to anchor oflr Jumping Point 
and sent their boats ashore for water. They were cut off by the British fleet from obtaining water at the 
watering places. I assisted them in carting their empty casks filling them and returning them through 
the surf to the boats. After the fleet had sailed a large drove of cattle arrived for their use, but as they 
had sailed I went with the drove to Gen. Maxwell's Army then laying at Spottswood. Col. White's 
troop of horse and Mai. Lee were then at Brown Brook they had taken the horse "Heron" then owned by 
R. Bown and rny uncle Thomas White. I went for the horses "Heron" and one for Nathan Justious — 
his answer was T. White my uncle was an old Tory and would not let me have him he delivered up Sfathan 
Justious horse which I led home to his owner. The other after sometime was returned and my brother 
Robert with myself purchased a >^ of a share for £46 and sold the same to my uncle T. White and never 
received a penny from him or from his estate. This is the end of old "Heron' so to return to my former 
memory and trials in the war. I returned to my trade. I was seldom idle, strove to make a living and 
lay up all I could while I had health. Robert Bowne proposed to my brother Robert that we should keep 
a small store, and he would assist us. We then hired Martin Miars wife to keep house for us. We began 
with ]^ lb. of butter, i lb. Pork and a few potatoes. We had no china, but it was much better than being 
in the army, still we were not far from them. We were so near the line, that in the fore part of the night 
we had British and Refugees, in the morning the American troops. My brother was called a Kings man 
or Refugee and myself a Rebel and friend to Jersey troops. Colonel Ford and Lee came. We had to 
find quarters for the army. The dwellings for some distance around were occupied by soldiers. We gave 
up our kitchen and cellar. Sometimes after this we commenced our store, began with a little tea, Barrel 
of sugar, papers, a pr. small scales with other small articles and i hhd. Rum. Apple spirit we had plenty 
as we carried on the distilling business at that time. We had gone on in this way but a short time when 
a large party of British and Refugees came off in order to surprise and take Col. Ford, with all his troops 
but they were informed just in time so as the rear of our troops passed the lanes by Wardells or where 
Tilee Williams now resides the whole of the British forces came on their rear shot and chased them to 
the Falls, but being so enraged that they had lost their prey that they set fire to the houses and burned 
many of them and plundered on their return. I hid most of our dry goods but they broke open the 
store, robbed us of what they could, filled their canteens with spirits and let it run to waste. My 1)rother 
was from home. They had my mare out and going off with her. I ran and got hold of her and while 
I was tusling with the soldier others were plundering my house, the guns left by our troops were broken 
across the fence. They seemed like wild or mad men. I kept hold of my mare until some of the Amer- 
ican troops who was in persute fired at them he then left me and run across the graveyard, so I saved my 
mare and some of the plunder. I had often to go to Philadelphia to buy goods. My brother was not 
acquainted, and I had that to do, but when he went out to work at his trade, I staid at home to watch 
and when I went he did the same, so we always kept busy trying to make a living, war appeared all 
around us— we were constantly in danger— near the line— between two fires— through favor we were 
preserved. We started very early one morning to gunning at Black Point, Judiah Allen's brother and 
Brother Robert the weather was very cold. I shot some fowl and in going for it on the ice I broke through 
—lost my gun in the water and came near drownding. I was expecting every moment to sink under the 



WTilTE OF NEW JERSEY 383 

ice, my mind being turned unto the Lord, I said "O Lord I am now coming unto thee — do thou have mercy 
on my poor soul" at last having got my arms on the ice and with my feet as if swimming brought me 
to the top of the water and with great effort I gradually craled on the ice, and as I moved I said, am I 
yet alive, and I praised my Maker for deliverance. John Hartshorne had been an eye witness to all my 
struggles in the water, but dared not come to me until I was on the strong ice, he then gave me his arm 
and helped me to Widow Marshes tavern at Black Point. They put me to bed, I felt as if I should per- 
ish with the cold, when the frost began to come out of me it resembled the steam from a boiling pot. In 
the evening I was conveyed home my agitation was so great that I found but little sleep my thoughts 
were on so great deliverance and at this time when I pen these lines I can say that I feel that I am a 
monument of his Mercies, and have great cause to bless His dear name for all his favors. The skin of 
my hands all pealed off like a potatoe, my gun was fished up with oyster tongs. As soon as I was able 
I started for Philadelphia for goods in a sleigh, at Burlington we went on the ice on the river to the city 
and back again which was never done before nor since to my memory — the winter was very severe. The 
ground froze to great depth. Joseph Lippencott died that winter and in digging his grave it was all 
frozen ground. We kept our store going for some time and then my brother married William Crawford's 
daughter, then our housekeeper left and we were much better suited. I was very fond of gunning after 
water fowl. I went to Little Silver and put my gun in the boat with the muzzle toward me, there was 
ice in the boat, the gun slipped, the lock struck the timbers and she went oflF the whole load passed through 
the bow of the boat, I stood by the side of the boat near the bow, this I saw was another great deliverance, 
and I could say what shall I render unto the Lord for so many favors and benefits. We rented the house 
we lived in and kept store in the front part, afterwards we bought it of John Corlies and paid the cash 
down, we bought it in partnership. It was the lot where I now live, we strove for an honest living and 
we had our health and seemed to be blessed. Sometime after I married Mary Morris, the war srill con- 
tinued. We lived in a small way in a small house which I bought of my wifes brother John Morris. 
Sometimes after my brother Robert told me that he must move. I found that he was in earnest. I 
told my wife that we must move in as I could not leave the store. Brother R. moved where he now 
lives — our families increasing we divided the household goods, and began to charge each other with what 
we took out of the store before this we each had out of the store without charge for many years. We 
have now obtained our Independence. War is at an end. We have agreed to give Quit Claim to each 
other, and I pay him the difference I took the lot in Shrewsbury town, and he the one where he now 
lives — through much hard work both my wife and myself we build a new home. My cellar is 32 x 42 
and 7 feet deep. I asked the mason how many stone he would want for the cellar wall he said fill the 
hole full just leave room enough for him to stand. I worked very hard getting the material for my 
cellar. The free stone in front came from Newark. The day I raised my house was a busy day. I 
had made up my mind not to have any rum, or spirits of any kind on the day of raising, although the 
expense was greater. I had a barrel of good beer with plenty of good cider and wine and eggs in the 
morning — it was raised without accident. The next morning as I was walking on the foundation show- 
ing my wife where the little bedroom was to be I fell with my breast on the joice hanging with both hands 
for some time at last fell to the bottom of the cellar. I was hurt very much was bleeding in both arms 
and confined to my bed for some days. As soon as I was able I went to Philadelphia for more goods by 
the way of Bordentown while the war continued I had to go on horseback to Philadelphia generally 
two teams met me at Bordentown sometimes in freezing cold winter and at other times hot schoring 
summer days — through all I have been preserved to the present moment and I have cause to be thank- 
ful. A law has been passed in Jersey tnat all goods found going towards the enemy's lines or coming 
out of Philadelphia should be seized and one half should go to the informer the other half to the state 
unless the owner was qualified that they were imported according to law — therefore all goods which I 
bought I presented to the Notary Public and was sworn or affirmed that what they sold me were so 
imported I also had the large seal of Pennsylvaia when they arrived at Bordentown. One Peter Tallman 
came with a company of men and said the goods were contraband and he should detain them as such. I 
showed him my invoice all attested and according to law, after looking them over he handed them back 
and replied that I had acted well and hoped every one would be as careful and guarded as I had been, 
but very few believed him, as he had been watching for the goods and would have been better suited 
to have kept them and a very great disappointment to him and many others in his gang. Richard Davis 
was in company with me and uncle Letson drove our team and Lamon Taylor his it was a fine pass tirne 
for all of them when they saw Tallman so chop fallen and all his gang skunk away. After I had paid 
my bill at the tavern we started for Shrewsbury and arrived home safe. I mention this to show that 
we had to be as wise as serpants and ought to have been as harmless as doves. I mentioned the raising 
of my house which was after the war and peace proclaimed then we began to ship goods from New York. 



384 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

My house was begun in the year 1789 and finished in 1790, we both mj wife and myself worked very 

We had a family of young children and many work peonle to provide for but we were blessed with good 
health through the goodness of a kind providence. We finished the house and moved the kitchen to 
the east end of the house. It has served for that use ever since. My brother Robert felt dissatisfied 
that I had a new house and he none. I told him that I would assist him in building one. I helped him 
until his house was all completed and then built his barn. Dr. Johnson was much in debt and had to sell 
his corner house and land— we bought it and found it very much encumbered with mortgages &c. It 
cost us a great deal of money and trouble. He owed some in New Brunswick, some above New York. 
I had to go to all who had claims on the estate and pay them off, so we still own all except what we 
sold to Corlies and Allen, the stone hill out southward is a part of the bargain. Then I bought in com- 
pany with Brother Robert 20 acres of woodland of James Williams— 50 acres of Daniel Williams, out 
by Bill Crafts. I claimed a right on 100 acres near Natts Hill— I let Brother Robert have one half, 
bought 40 acres of John Morris. I bought the old Sand field adjoining it and the new ground more or 
less which makes the land square. I built a small house on it and planted 2 orchards and fenced it. I 
also bought a lot adjoining the above built a small house and repaired the barn. Bought of James R. 
Holmes Vandue 3 Lots of Woodland at Chestnut plains, also at the same time two lots of WoodlaJid of 
John Holmes, one near the Falls 67 acres the other by Polly Britons 58 18/100 acres, which I paid for 
in Silver Money, and all the rest has been paid for which the deeds will show. I mention the above lots 
to let my children know how they came to be mine as well as the dwelling houses and out houses they 
came by industry and hard labor, with the great goodness of the All wise Providence. He can bless a 
little and blast a great deal. I hope I may ever be truly thankful for all his favors and say what shall 
I render unto thee O Lord for all thy benefits and favors. This brings to my mind another favor. I 
went to New York with my wife Mary to buy goods she went Westchester to visit brother John White. 
I sent my goods on board of a Boat lying at the foot of Peck Slip, to sail next day for Shrewsbury. My 
wife had returned to Robert Bowns. I went to the boat in the evening to put something on Board, it 
being dark I fell into the water from the dock and put my shoulder out ofjoint. I found a ring and 
cable in the corner of the dock which I held unto and cried for help, and the Mounts on board heard 
me and helped out of the water to R. Bowns house. Dr. Simmons came and set my shoulder. It made 
a loud report when replaced. They bound me with silk handkercheifs in rny chair when he bled me, I 
fainted away. I went on board next day and arrived safely at home. This I mention as another nar- 
row escape from death. My brother R. seldom went from home I often thought he did not know the 
dangers and hardships I had to pass through, but his health would not permit him, and not being so 
much in the store his judgment was not so good in buying or selling. I was very fond of fishing and gun- 
ning whenever I had. an opportunity. It gave me new life. I often caught Sheepshead, Barb, Bass 
and other fish with hook and line. I owned a large fishing seine, but of late I found it did not answer 
and I sold the seine boat and ropes to Dr. Longstreet. He broke so I lost all. I then had John King's 
boat and his son Benjamin a small lad we fished in the channel near Tallman's Creek. We concluded 
to hoist sail and run down to the Beech. In doing so the SkiflF upset. The boy and myself got on to 
the bottom of the boat. I lost my hat — it sunk to the bottom. We remained there for sometime. 
At last William Pichard and Samuel Lain came from Rumson to our deliverance they refused receiving 
anything for their services but I think I have since rewarded them. I came to John Kings without a 
hat and glad to get home alive. This was just before my daughter Betsey was married to Amos Tilton. 
They had passed meeting. I hardly expected to see it accomplished when on the bottom of the boat 
in the channel, but blessed be his Holy Name I am still a monument of his Mercies. My brother John 
proposed to join us in partnership, he to purchase all the goods and I to take charge of the store and 
share the profits equally. We purchased a boat, after a while business declined our boat did not pay 
ware and tare. The hands run away with all the profits. W^e mutually dissolved partnership and I 
had to buy all the goods, and have ever since. When we dissolved partnership with Brother John it 
was agreed that we should pay him a commission for purchasing goods we wrote for, but when we settled 
he wanted pay for all goods bought. I thought hard in his so doing but I let it pass. I had a large family 
to support. My wife and myself had to rise early and work hard to support them. I had an old un- 
settled account with Brother John for lumber from Ludlow's Yard. Alter his death his son George 
(was not a member of the Friends) became much embarrassed. I concluded to let it go with the rest, 
but it gave me some consolation that they all alowed it to be my just due. From inability my brother 
Robert was seldom in the store he was very fond of setting up diflPerent mechanics, but not to see to any 
part of selling or carrying them on. He in company with Joseph Parker built a saw mill— Betsey Parker's 
husband. He was a poor tool for his works proved him to be so — he had the worst work in building the 
mill done in cold short days — men worked with mittens. At last he began sawing we were to have half. 



WHITE OF NEW JERSEY 385 

When we sent for our half we found that he had carted it all to our store and we had been buying our own 
boards. We also bought of Job Morris a plantation near the sawmill a man and his wife was on the 
place we were to have one half of the butter and cheese it served for country seat at Squancom — in a 
short time all seemed to be going to decay and we sold both the plantation and the saw mill and took 
horses and so on for pay and bid farewell to Squancom. We next set up a blacksmith and cooper shop 
furnished each with tools. The blacksmith turned horseeler and the cooper lazy and the shop and tools 
all fell on our hands. We next set up John Winans in a hat factory — found him fur. He spoiled all the 
hats and came out of the little end ofthe horn. After that old Molly DeCamp started a store in Turkey- 
town. We supplied her with goods. At first it looked like doing well. She got in debt and moved off 
to Brunswick we lost all the debt with costs. Then Thomas Tilton proposed for us to supply him with 
goods at Squan and give us half the profits — he might have done very well had he not trusted so much, 
also his son William lived in New York whom he supplied with lumber paid for out of the store which 
caused its ruin. I believe Thomas Tilton to be an honest upright man — omitted many things not having 
learning. We had all matters settled by Arbitration after his death. Now all the above I mention to 
show my children that all our schemes failed where we had to trust to other persons to do our business 
and found but little dependence to be placed in any one when it was not under my eye and examine the 
accounts myself and not trust it to others. I then drew all my business into a small compass and found 
it not so much perplexity. The corner house we rented for a tavern to a man named Joseph Vimk. It 
was attended with so much trouble to collect the rent and keep the house in repair which all fell on me. 
The house was on fire several times and would have burned down if I had not obtained help speedily. 
He was a bad man and I had many long law suits to get him out so I had it fixed in my mind to sell 
when a chance offered and I sold it to Corlies and Allen they have paid me in full, and to return my 
daughter Caroline who had all the charge of the store when I was away from [home] was taken from me 
by death. She was much esteemed by all who knew her and was company for both young and old. She 
departed with praise to her Maker, and I beleive she is now in the realms of Bliss. My dear wife began 
to complain. She was a very stiring woman and would never give up unless very Bad. I have ob- 
served her cheerfulness when in her bodily weekness, yet with a composed mind. She would entertain 
company as though nothing ailed her. She had a sweet temper — good disposition and kind to the poor 
and ner steps will long be remembered. I beleive she is now with the dear children in the blessed abode 
singing her Maker's praise, the loss I felt more than this pen can mention, but I said the Lord gave and 
the Lord hath taken away blessed be forever the name of the Lord. I hope I may so live and end my days 
that we may both again meet never to part. When we were first married we had to use great economy. 
I began life with very little property. I had a small store had been plundered by the Refugees, I was 
called a Rebel having always taken an active part in the American cause and had been a wagon-master 
under General Putnam, but had an acquital from him — honorably and had retired to the land of my 
nativity in order to settle in life more agreeable to my mind — and this the Refugees and Tories knew as 
I had informed them that I half left the army. I would also say just before we were married, the tories 
robbed my wife of her last bed. She sat on it until they dragged both her and the bed into the street, 
it is our duty to firgive but we cannot forget them. And it was my opinion — is now — that none but 
true Americans should be at the head of Government affairs and it is duty to keep all Foreigners from 
Public office, but use them well while they behave well keep them from office as much as possible. We 
have obtained our Independence and we ought to be very thankful to Him for the same and the way for 
us to keep it is to live in love for all but trust none to conduct the affairs of the Nation but true Ameri- 
cans. This much I thought might not be amiss to pen at this time. There is one thing I omitted on the 
first part of this paper W'hen making arrangements to pay my Master who lay sick at Cooperstown I 
took what money I earned at Bordentown, and borrowed the balance of Jonathan Chesar. I had seen 
him at my fathers and also at my uncles Thomas White while I lived with him and had the care of his 
horse. I was a poor lad and he was the only one I could think of who would trust me for the money and 
he did. I was very bare for shirts at the time my master paid me back two bills for that purpose, but I 
kept the very bills untill I earned money enough to pay off my note — but I sold a pair ot new boots to 
help raise the money. I paid him so soon he threw off the interest, for which I thanked him. I was 
advised not to pay for my time — I was only bound to him he could not sell it but this came to my mind — 
he will soon leave this world, and if I don't pay him his full demand when I meet him in the World of 
Spirits he would look angry at me — so I made up my mind to pay him in full of all demands and I am 
very glad I did and it may be one cause and a great cause why I nave been so blest in basket and in store 
when I paid him, he bid me farewell and requested me to be nice and keep good company, not any low 
company but such as might improve me. I thanked him for his good advise he died soon after. I 
mention this to show my children how good it is to attend to inward Monitor at all times in youth as well 



386 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

as in old age. William Penn's advice to his son William is good he says: — "No cross, no crown, let noth- 
ing in the world tempt you to wrong your conscience." I mention this to show how good it is and ever 
will be to attend to the b'lessed Monitor within us. I have great cause to be thankful that in some measure 
I have attended to it which has kept me in early life from many grave evils. After the departure of my 
loving wife in a reasonable time I was inclined to marry my second wife judging it far better than to hire 
a housekeeper for generally they have no interest in the family but their wages and there would be great 
waste of property in and about the house what come in at the door flew out at the window for they have 
friends and relations they wish to help. I have had a trial of both and would choose to support a good 
wife and many children than one housekeeper hired by the week. But this is a task for a widower to 
perform first the age— temper— religion— virtue— economy and agreeable to your family to study all 
this and consider it well and ask in secret that you may be blest in jrour undertaking with the Presence of 
Divine Providence, all this I think I tried to do in my second choice for a wife which as yet I have no 
cause to regret and I hope I never shall. I had known her from childhood and her father and mother 
had both been kind to me when a stranger in a strange land. It is not my intention to mention our 
marriage as my children by my first wife all remember her. We had three children viz. — Stacy — William 
and Sarah. We have great cause to be thankful for so many favors and blessings having health and 
the means to entertain both freinds and stranger at our house. We have had the company of many 
from different parts of the world. I will mention of a great deliverance and recovery from a bed of sick- 
ness. I had been in the sea and had taken cold and concluded to take a dose of Calomel which proved 
to be very severe. I was in great distress of body the Doctor had no hopes of my recovery. I was 
greatly reduced and was obliged to lie very low for nine or ten months. I was taken sick in the summer 
and remained so until late the next spring, when I gave over all hopes of ever recovering my health. My 
heart beat so that strong that you could see my waistcoat move at every motion. I had recourse to ever- 
ting I could think of but none seemed to help me. At last one Doctor Perkins came to get some Medicines 
and told me that it was a nerve that led to my heart which was out of order and said if I would [take] 
some conserve (or sweet meat) with port wine and solid food it would help me. I did so and had not 
used it more than two days before it began to amend and the blessing of health returned. I mention 
this as another great Mercy and favor to be remembered. This conserve is made of the real rose and 
leaf sugar or good broken lump sugar will answer i lbs. of sugar to one pound of buds and leaves pound 
the buds and leaves first then add the sugar and pound them all together — as I was in a very week state 
it seemed to brace me up and give me strength — I mention this that if any of my children or friends or 
any one else should ever be in the same way that they might [employ] the same remedy which through 
divine favor helped me, and be a benefit to some one else in a week state of health.

WHITLOCK 

OF 

MONMOUTH COUNTY 

THOMAS WHITLOCK, an early settler in Gravesend and Westchester, New 
York, and later a resident of Middletown, New Jersey, was, I infer, the son of Thomas 
WhitlockjOfRappahannockCounty, Virginia, who made his will Oct. 9, 1659, mentioning 
his wife Mary and his son Thomas. Virginia Magazine of History, Vol. V., p. 285. 

There is no evidence to support this inference; it is simply based upon the general 
harmony of dates, similarity of family names and the absence in 1655, of Thomas Whit- 
lock from Gravesend during which time his wife acted as his attorney. It is undoubtedly 
this Thomas Whitlock who is mentioned in the following paragraph: 1638, March 2. 
Richard Bennett, of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, (page 626), had a grant of 300 acres 
of land, upon the bay behind Ambrose Meders point and near Thomas Davis, in right 
of 6 persons by John Myles: John Myles, Tho Whitlock, Silvester Focher (changed), 
Robert Willey, William Harrison, Andrew Blackwell. 

Cavaliers & Pioneers, Calendar of Virginia Land Grants, page 148. 

Thomas Whitlock while in old England, tradition says, married a young wornan 
under the following romantic circumstances: A party of lads and maidens were strolling 
over the fields on a bright Sunday afternoon when, coming to a hedge, one of the girls, 
Susanna Stock, threw her glove across it, and jestingly said she would give her hand 
to the one who could vault it. Athletic young Whitlock accomplished it and claimed 
the reward, saying it was fit that the Stock should go with the Lock. Certain it is 
that Whitlock had a daughter Susanna. 

Miss Harriet Bray, a student of Whitlock genealogy, wrote me: "I have heard 
many times the statement that Thomas Whitlock married, for a first wife, Susanna 
Stock, and though I have searched diligently I have never found any evidence that such 
a person as Susanna Stock ever existed. Of course I cant prove that she did not, but 
not a scrap of proof could I ever unearth." 

During his residence in Gravesend, Long Island, he sold, Aug. [2] 25, 1655, through 
his wife, Mary,* acting as his attorney, a house and lot to John George Baldwin [Balden], 
and we know that he married, after 1675, Mary, the widow of Thomas Seabrook, o\ 
Westchester town, Westchester Co., N. Y. So that it is fair to suppose that he had 

•May not a careless clerk use the title wife instead of mother? 



390 HISTORICAL MISCELLANY 

three wives. His apparent absence in 1655, and the action of his wife in disposing of 
his property at the time, suggests that he was away, closing up his affairs in an earlier 
home. 

Upon his advent in Gravesend he was allotted farm 38. 

In 1654, he bought a farm of Nicholas Stillwell in Gravesend. 

In 1657, he had five acres of his farm in the North West quarter under cultivation. 

In October, 1663, he was one of the men, "armed and well mounted," who joined 
the English troops at Jamaica. 1 r u /- 

In December, 1663, he was a member of the Gravesend scouting expedition to 
Navesing region, later Monmouth Co., N. J., who, in defiance of the Dutch, intended 
to buy and settle thereon. , , , , , .. 

Judged by these last two actions he belonged to the discontented English con- 
tingent who had sought a home among the Dutch, but who desired to renounce their 
allegiance with the Connecticut settlements. 

1666, Oct. 7. Thomas Whitlock and John Griggs were fined fifteen shillings each, 
for bargaining on the sabbath. 

1666, Oct. 24, he bought from Christianson Jacobson [Wolf], lot 34 in Gravesend. 

1670. He had Guisbert Island rights assigned to him. 

1670, Apr. II. Nicholas Stillwell sold him lot 29 in Gravesend. 

1 67 1, Nov. 6. Whereas the quorum wase pleased to order Will Wilkinse to pay tenn 
pounds towards the relefe of Hanna Aplegate and her childe this sheweth that Thomas

iS'ji, Apr. 10. Thomas Whitlock, of Gravesend, sold lots 29 and 34, to Barent 
Johnson, of Amersford, which were to be delivered May i, 1673. On the same paper 
is endorsed: 

1679/80, Feb. 28. "This witnesseth that Thomas Whitlock, living att Westchester 
doth owne to be paid and ffully satisfied by Barent Juriansen of Gravesend," etc. 

During his residence in Gravesend, 1664, New Netherlands was surrendered to the 
English, and immediately Thomas Whitlock with his own and four other families, 
settled upon the unbroken soil of Middletown, in Monmouth Co., N. J. 

In 1667, the settlement of this village was effected by a patent, granted in April, 
1665, by Governor NichoUs to the Monmouth Patentees and their Associates, and 
Thomas Whitlock received lots 4 and 34. 

In 1670, he was among the purchasers of land called Newasink, Narumsunk and 
Pootapeck. 

In 1673, Thomas Whitlock and his three sons, took the Oath of Allegiance to the 
Dutch, who had recently and temporarily re-entered New York, and at the same time 
the Dutch Governor, Calve, appointed him, (Thomas Whitlock, Sr.), ensign of the 
Middletown militia company.

East Jersey Grantees, Fol. j, B side, page /. 

1676, Jan. 10. He patented two hundred and seventeen acres of land at Middletown 
from the Proprietors. 

In 1675, Thomas Seabrook died leaving his widow, Mary, residing in Westchester, 
whither Thomas Whitlock soon betook himself, and where he must soon have married 
her, lor he was sued under the following circumstances: 

Roger Townsend, in October, 1672, had sold land in Westchester to Morgan Bedient, 
singleman, who, the following year, 1673, sold it to Thomas Seabrook. Both Bedient 
and Seabrook shortly died and the latter was succeeded in his property by his brother, 
Thomas Bedient, who threatened an action against Thomas Whitlock, who had ap- 
parently married Mary, the widow of Seabrook, and who, in 1688, sedured a release 
from all claims owned by the said Bedient. 

There was also seemingly some confusion about other lands owned by Thomas Sea- 
brook, for the town of Westchester decreed, April 22, 1692, that: 

Whereas there is a Twenty ffifve pound priviledge of Comonage belonging to the Orphant of Thomas 
Seabrook late freeholder of this Town Deceased the said Priviledge being in Po/se/sion of Thomas Whit- 
lock wee the Trustees do declare that the said twenty five pound privilege do belong to the orphant of 
Thomas Seabrook & no more intended for the said Thomas Whitlock. 

The relations between Thomas Whitlock and Daniel Seabrook, who was the 
"orphant" referred to, continued amicable, for Nov. 9, 1688, the latter was a witness 
in Middletown, N. J., whither he had removed, to a deed of Whitlock to John Ruckman, 
and, June 10, 1696, Thomas Whitlock, of Middletown, carpenter, for £80, sold to "Daniel 
Seabrook, my son in law," ol Middletown, planter, two hundred and two acres of land, 
in Middletown, at Shoal Harbor, which included his proprietary grant of Jan. 10, 1676; 
land from John Bowne, Mch. 26, 1689; land from John Pierce, Sep. 4, 1693, and more, 
by deed Feb. 12, 1691, for which Seabrook paid £80. 

1676, Jan. 10. Thomas Whitlock received a Carteret grant of eight parcels of land, 
containing two hundred and seventeen acres of upland and meadow.

the hill and running south thirty four chains to the line of William Whitlock's land," 
Garret Wall's land, John Whitlock's land and William Whitlock's land. This was the 
land Thomas Whitlock received from the Proprietors March 10, 1676.

1695, Mch. 26. Thomas Whitlock, yeoman, of Middletown, for £10, sold to John 
Whitlock, yeoman, of same place, nine acres of meadow or pasture land. 

Thomas Whitlock's residences in the villages of Gravesend, Middletown and 
Westchester were overlapping. Before he abandoned one he apparently ventured upon 



WHITLOCK OF MONMOUTH COUNTY, N. J. 393 

another, and, holding lands in each, was confusingly spoken of as a resident of each, 
and as undivided lands were apportioned to non-resident holders he frequently was 
granted lands though absent. He also apparently bought and sold property in these 
settlements as a speculation. 

A study of the records gives his residences as follows: 

1655, and earlier, at Gravesend. 

1664, at Middletown. 

1666, at Gravesend, where he probably remained until 1672. 

1673 to 1678, at Middletown. 

1678 to 1686, at Westchester. 

1686 to 1703, at Middletown. 

The parentage of his children is unascertained, but it seems that the boys may have 
been, by reason of their age, by his first wife, as well as his daughter, Susanna, while 
the other children were probably the issue by one of his later wives. So far as the deduc- 
tion concerning Susanna goes, I realize it is faulty, for to have been the daughter of a 
Susanna, she must have been born prior to 1655, when Thomas Whitlock had a wife, 
Mary, and we know that Susanna Pew, his daughter, was living in 1760, which would 
have made her one hundred and five years and upwards. It is also worthy of note that 
Thomas Whitlock left no daughter, Mary, though he had two wives by that name. It 
may be, of course, that he had such a child, and that she died young. 

Thomas Whitlock was an energetic and aggressive man, of restricted education, 
but endowed with a strong, clear mind, which, coupled with integrity, placed him high 
in the esteem of his fellow townsmen, who selected him to fill the positions of constable, 
grand juror, foreman of jury, town surveyor, etc. 

"Carelessness, physical bravery and unlimited hospitality are Whitlock traits." 

The walking stick of the first Thomas Whitlock, marked "Thomas Whitlock, 1692," 
is owned by Joseph Whitlock, of New York City. 

His widow, Mary, was a communicant of the Middletown Baptist Church, in 17 12, 
as also another of like name, Mary Whitlock, who was likely the wife of John Whitlock, 
4. The latter is again mentioned in the Church list of 173 1. 

Mary, wife of Thomas Whitlock, the first, is further alluded to under the Seabrook 
family. 

The original will of Thomas Whitlock is on file as well as of record at Trenton, N. J. 
A copy of it is as follows: 

In the name of God, Amen. I Thomass Whitelock of Shole harber in midletowne in east newjersy

in 1671. 

In 1673, he took the Oath of Allegiance to the Dutch. 

He was included in his father's application for lands, in 1675, but as no patent was 
issued to him, and no further allusion is made to him, it is conjectured that he died be- 
tween 1675 and 1676, without issue. 

3 WILLIAM WHITLOCK, son of Thomas Whitlock, i, was a settler on the 
Monmouth tract as early as 1664, to which he had come with his father and brothers

signed alone. 

He removed to Cape May, where, Sep. 30, 1707, his lands were sold by his brother, 
John Whitlock, of Freehold, to Jonathan Swain and his wife, Ruth Swain, of Cape May.

7 ABIGAIL WHITLOCK, daughter of Thomas Whitlock, i. 

Some years ago Miss Harriet Bray, a most conscientious, painstaking genealogist, 

wrote me: "I am quite disappointed that you have not yet located Abigail , 

wife of Samuel Ogborne, Second. Abigail Whitlock, daughter of the original Thomas, 
lacks an husband and I have been tempted to marry her to Samuel Ogborne and defy 
the interested to prove that she was not. She is the only Abigail at large I can find 
whose dates are suitable." This conjecture is entitled to consideration but it is well to 
recollect that Samuel Ogborne, the Second, came from West Jersey, and may have 
brought his wife with him.
