purpose and scope of this work need little explanation. 
The genealogies recorded in these volumes are those of 
extant families of the great American Republic, whose long 
and distinguished connexion with their country has made 
them part of its history, or whose descent from some ancient European 
house entitles them to be included in a publication of this nature. 

The armorials of families deducing their lineage from armigerous 
progenitors are given, but the mere possession of rightfully-borne Arms 
has in no case been regarded as an inevitable qualification for admission. 
There are many popular delusions, and not the least unfounded and absurd 
is that one which considers the bearing of officially authorized Arms to 
be the necessary condition of gentle descent ; indeed, many of the 
oldest and most important families in England enjoy no such right. 

A few words as to the sources from which I have drawn my 
materials. I have endeavoured throughout to obey the sound axiom 
of never adducing inferior testimony where better could be had. Acting 
on this principle, I have lost no opportunity of having frequent recourse to 
the parish and other local registers, to testamentary documents, to the 
archives of public offices, to the records of nonconformist associations, 
to family papers, and to various collections of original manuscripts 
both in this country and in America. Where, as has often been the 
case, the original authorities were lost or inaccessible, I have relied only 
on what have appeared on careful examination to be trustworthy com 
pilations. Nevertheless, I am fully conscious that many imperfections 
will be apparent to the critic of these pages, but in a work of this kind, 
where every line contains a name and a date, it seems hardly neces 
sary to make the usual conventional apology for unavoidable mistakes.

PREFACE 

The determined destruction of dearly-cherished traditions may in 
some instances pain or offend those who have long prided themselves 
on what proves itself to be an entirely imaginary descent from some 
mythical ancestor, but the faithful genealogical historian must go forward 
without fear or favour, secure in the panoply of truth. 

I need scarcely say that without the ready assistance of correspondents 
in all parts of the United States, the accomplishment of my task would 
have been almost impossible, and I take this opportunity of thanking 
them for their unvarying courtesy and generous co-operation. I am 
particularly indebted to Miss Gail Treat, Governor-General of the Order 
of the Descendants of Colonial Governors ; Mr. J. Ridgely Carter, 
Councillor of the American Embassy, London ; the Rev. George Smith, 
D.D., author of The Story of Georgia ; the Rev. Robert Wilson, D.D., 
President of the Huguenot Society of South Carolina ; Mr. Walter 
Lispenard Suydam, of the Saint Nicholas Society of the City of New 
York ; and to the Rev. Lawrence Buckley Thomas, D.D. 

The late Dr. Moncure Daniel Conway, by his kindness and active 
co-operation, did much to help me in the compilation of several of the 
Virginia pedigrees ; and for additional information concerning these 
families I must acknowledge the assistance that I have received from the 
Rev. Horace Edwin Hayden s Virginia Genealogies by far the most learned 
and trustworthy genealogical work ever produced in America. 

In conclusion I would point out that the order in which the 
memoirs are inserted, and the number of the volume in which they are 
recorded, in no way indicate the relative prominence of any particular 
family.

INTRODUCTION 

IN dealing with the earliest beginnings of a nation the historian 
is inevitably confronted with a mass of legend involved in 
discrepancies, uncertainties, and contradictions. These he 
must disentangle and unravel, discarding the improbable, 
and retaining the plausible, till at length he may evolve a more or 
less satisfactory account of its origin and early development, but 
never one which can pretend to absolute accuracy. 

But in this respect the United States of America stands alone 
among the great nations of the world. The first history of the 
nation as representing a civilized country is known intimately and 
decisively with full, reliable, and accurate records dating, as it were, 
from the beginning of time. It would be superfluous to attempt 
in such a work as this to give a lengthy account of the original 
discovery of America, but the nature of my task demands that I 
should trace as shortly as possible the first history of early settle 
ments in that country. 

For the present purpose I may pass over the exploits of the 
sixteenth-century venturers. Interesting as they are to the historical 
student, they were, as regards any influence on the present national 
life, entirely unproductive of result. The names of Ponce de Leon, 
de Ayllon, Narvaez, de Soto, Verrazzani, or Roberval may excite 
a thrill in one who knows the early history of his country ; but it 
is not to these that one must look in tracing the origins of distin 
guished families, for all their attempts at founding settlements in 
North America were doomed to failure. 

The English attempts at colonization during that century 
all ended disastrously. Stukely s mad project came to naught, 
and the fine effort of Sir Humphrey Gilbert resulted in his 
death in American waters ; while the end of the gallant and 
well-considered schemes of Sir Walter Raleigh was even more 
tragic. When ships were sent out to Virginia to succour the 
second little colony he had there planted not a living soul could 
be found. The hundred and fifty settlers had absolutely disap 
peared, and the only hint of their fate came, long afterwards, in 



INTRODUCTION 

the form of a tradition telling of a band of whites who had been 
kept in slavery by the Indians. 

But early in the seventeenth century comes the first of those 
successful settlements which were the seeds from which has sprung 
the American nation. After a few minor expeditions among them 
being one sent out by Raleigh on a vain quest for those settlers 
who had not been heard of for fifteen years the Virginia Company 
was formed in London in 1606. Among the many notabilities 
who were members of the company were Hakluyt, Sir George 
Somers, Sir Thomas Gates, and Sir Ferdinando Gorges. A royal 
patent was granted, which assigned in the most absolute manner 
every detail of the government of the proposed colony to the 
crown ; but it is a noteworthy fact that within thirty years Virginia 
was, practically, an independent state. An expedition was speedily 
fitted out, and on i January 1607, the company, one hundred and 
forty-three strong, sailed from the Downs. The captain was 
Christopher Newport, and with him was Captain John Smith, 
the celebrated son of an obscure Lincolnshire gentleman, and 
Edward Maria Wingfield, who was to become the first president 
of the settlement. 

For the next few years the history of these colonists is one 
long list of strange misfortunes and even stranger adventures. 
They suffered from Indian attacks, famine, sickness, and internal 
dissensions. Captain John Smith was captured by the Indians, 
but was eventually released after some extraordinary experiences. 
Jamestown, their settlement, was burned down. The terribly 
severe penal laws by which they were governed caused much 
misery and many attempts at revolt. The company itself was 
reduced to sore distress for lack of funds, shareholders in England 
refusing to pay their subscriptions. But in spite of all, the men 
struggled through. Sir Thomas Gates took them to a better site 
for their settlement, where they were comparatively safe from 
Indian attacks. The Indians became more friendly, and Pocahontas, 
the daughter of an Indian chief, was married to John Rolfe. 
Argall, commanding Virginian ships, destroyed the French settle 
ments which had just been made off the coast of Maine and at 
Port Royal. In 1619 the first assembly of burgesses was sum 
moned, and trade was rapidly being developed. After that the 
Indians rising and killing 347 settlers did but check the growth 
of the colony ; the unjust revocation of the patent of the Virginia 

10 



INTRODUCTION 

Company by King James in 1624 scarcely affected it. In spite 
of the many difficulties which attended its struggle for existence, 
the colony was by this time firmly established, and during the 
seventeenth century its development became even more assured. 
In the first twenty years of its existence less than six thousand 
settlers landed in Virginia, but as the struggle between King Charles 
and his opponents grew more and more bitter in England, Virginia 
rapidly gained in population. 

Of those who settled there during the seventeenth century a 
large proportion belonged to the Royalist party, and many were 
descendants of recognized English families. About this period, 
while the New England settlements were being developed by the 
Puritans, Virginia, Maryland, and the Carolinas might well have 
been called the Cavalier colonies. Nor is this surprising, for, apart 
from the fact that emigrants of either party would naturally go to 
the land where they would find men who agreed with them on 
religious and political questions, the laws of the Southern Colonies 
were calculated to attract members of the wealthier classes. 

It must not be supposed, however, that any social or class 
distinction is to be drawn between Cavaliers and Roundheads. 
Persons of equally good birth belonged indifferently to both parties, 
even members of the same family often fighting on opposite sides 
an unfortunate state of things, but one unhappily not without 
a parallel in more modern times. A genealogy, therefore, tracing 
its origin to a Cavalier progenitor in no way indicates, ipso facto, 
a more aristocratic descent than a lineage which boasts Cromwellian 
ancestors. 

In Virginia a planter could claim for himself an additional 
fifty acres of land on account of every person whom, at his own 
expense, he had brought into the country. Thus, from the earliest 
times of the settlement there was a body of landed proprietors, 
which steadily grew in power and numbers and developed the 
family pride, which many of the planters had brought with them 
from the mother country. Such class distinctions were strengthened 
by the fact that there were no common schools. In 1671 Sir William 
Berkeley wrote : " Every man instructs his children according to 
his own ability " ; which naturally ensured that the sons of the 
landowners received some sort of education, while the children of 
the labouring classes were left in hopeless ignorance and unable 
to rise above the level of their forefathers.

INTRODUCTION 

It should be noted that the frequently repeated statement that 
many of the colonials of the humbler class were " felons," while in 
one sense true, is really wholly misleading. These " felons " were 
for the most part political offenders. There were many stormy 
times in England during that century, and whichever party was 
in power was in the habit of dubbing those of the other party 
" felons " on the very slightest provocation. Some of the men 
transported had been taken when fighting against the reigning 
monarch. The penal laws of England were at that time most 
severe ; men were convicted for offences that to-day would be 
deemed trifling, and in all probability very few had been guilty 
of what, in these days, would be described as felonies. On the 
other hand, it is certain that among the land-owning class there 
were many who could claim gentle descent. 

Among the families figuring prominently in the history of this 
state which still survive in the male line are those of Washington, 
Carter, Randolph, Lee, Byrd, Page, Fairfax, Harrison, Boiling, 
Claiborne, Digges, Conway, Cabell, Ashton, Fitzhugh, Fowke, 
Gordon, Henry, Pendleton, Slaughter, Tyler, and Chichester. 

Although several other colonies were established in America 
between 1606, the date of the first settlement of Virginia, and 
1634, when Maryland was founded, the early histories of these 
two states are so intimately connected that one naturally falls into 
place with the other. Maryland owes its birth to the fact that 
George Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore, unable to establish 
successfully a colony in Newfoundland, found his attempt to trans 
plant that settlement to Virginia barred in consequence of his 
being a Catholic. In his youth George Calvert, a native of York 
shire, was educated at Oxford, and his education was afterwards sup 
plemented by a knowledge of the world gathered during extensive 
travels. During Queen Elizabeth s reign he was secretary to Sir 
Robert Cecil, and in the time of James the First he rose to be 
one of the two secretaries of State. In this position he strongly 
advocated the marriage of Prince Charles to the Infanta of Spain, 
and, when this project came to naught, Calvert avowed himself a 
Catholic, an avowal necessitating his resignation of the emoluments 
and dignities of his high office. Then King James, never averse 
to the Catholics so long as they made no attempt to dispute his 
authority as a monarch, granted Calvert estates in Ireland and an 
Irish peerage. 

12 



INTRODUCTION 

Throughout his career Lord Baltimore had been in favour 
of English settlements in America. He had been a member of the 
Virginia Company and, while Secretary of State, had obtained a 
special patent for the southern promontory of Newfoundland. But 
in spite of all his efforts he failed in his attempt to establish a 
colony there. His grant tended to impair the freedom of the 
fisheries of Newfoundland, which the English Parliament steadfastly 
insisted upon preserving. The French and the Puritans already 
established in these regions were decidedly hostile, and the climate 
and soil were less favourable than his agents had reported. Aban 
doning his original project he sailed to Virginia, but here the laws 
excluded Catholics, and the assembly ordered the oaths of allegiance 
and supremacy to be tendered him, oaths which no Catholic could 
take. So Lord Baltimore returned to England to obtain the 
charter for the territory now known as Maryland. 

Much of the territory included in the Virginia patent was 
then assigned to him, but the Virginia Company s patent had 
already been revoked, and with his influence at Court, Lord Balti 
more succeeded in gaining the King s assent in spite of the fierce 
opposition of the Virginians. The charter was drawn up, but 
before it could pass the great seal Lord Baltimore died, and it was 
then granted to his eldest son and successor, to whom fell the 
honour of founding the colony which for several generations 
descended as a patrimony to his heirs. 

This charter differed in many essentials from any other patent 
that had passed the great seal of England. It assured a measure 
of representative government and religious equality in the colony ; 
it made Lord Baltimore absolute lord and proprietor in return 
for a payment of two Indian arrows yearly and one-fifth of all 
the gold and silver found, and expressly covenanted that neither 
the King nor his successors should ever set any tax, custom, or 
imposition upon the inhabitants of the province. Thus Maryland, 
named after Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles the First, was to be 
free of all control by the English crown. 

Many Catholics of good birth resolved to join in the enter 
prise of planting a colony under such a favourable charter, and 
in 1634, under the leadership of Leonard Calvert, Lord Baltimore s 
brother, some two hundred persons sailed up the Potomac in search 
of a site for their settlement. They purchased land from some 
friendly Indians, who were about to vacate their town for a region 

13 



INTRODUCTION 

farther inland ; from these Indians they learned something of the 
agricultural advantages of the country, and also what splendid 
hunting was to be found in the neighbourhood, and thus under the 
happiest auspices the settlers established themselves in the village 
they named St. Mary s. Supported by the wealth and influence of 
Lord Baltimore, having among its population a large proportion 
of men who were possessed of both means and education, able, 
having learnt through others misfortunes, to avoid the pitfalls into 
which the older colonies had fallen, Maryland grew and flourished 
exceedingly. As the power of the Court party declined in England 
Catholics joined the settlement in increasing numbers. Later on, 
attracted by the toleration here given to any Christian sect- 
Episcopalians, Presbyterians, or Quakers members of all kinds of 
religious denominations migrated to Maryland in large numbers 
to enjoy liberty denied to them in England. 

But although, when compared with the early histories of other 
colonies, the establishment and development of Maryland may be 
said to have been marked by singular success, it was not to be 
expected that with another jealous colony on the south, surrounded 
by tribes of savages notoriously difficult to deal with, and affected 
by the bitter struggles between the warring factions in England, 
the career of the colony could be uniformly peaceful. Trouble 
arose within a year of the first settlement. The Virginians claimed 
the Isle of Kent as part of their territory, and a number of 
Virginians under the leadership of William Clayborne, a Virginian 
councillor, had habitations there. The dispute led to fighting, and 
several men were killed. Clayborne fled to Virginia, and Sir John 
Harvey, the governor, who had been expressly bidden by the 
King to be friendly with the Marylanders, sent him to England, 
where the points at issue between the two colonies were to be 
settled. 

Some eight years later, taking advantage of the war between 
King Charles and the Parliament, Clayborne made a determined 
attempt to recover the island. Richard Ingle, a sea captain, was, 
in 1644, cruising in Chesapeake Bay in command of a small fleet, 
with letters of marque commissioning him to attack the enemies 
of the Parliament. Ingle landed, seized upon St. Mary, and 
took possession of the government, while Clayborne simultane 
ously succeeded in once more establishing himself in the Isle of 
Kent. But their success was short lived. Calvert, who had fled 



INTRODUCTION 

into Virginia, returned, rallied his forces, and drove out both the 
intruders. But in spite of this temporary check to its develop 
ment, in spite of hostility shown by the once friendly Indians, 
in spite of changes in the colony which successively followed the 
triumph of Parliament, the Restoration, and the English revolution 
of 1688, Maryland continued to flourish and to attract many of 
the better class of settlers. 

The Calverts, Carrolls, Ridgelys, Tilghmans, Burwells, 
Brents, Briscoes, Lloyds, Lowndes, Tildens, Brookes, and Chews 
are among the historic families of Maryland which still survive in 
the male line. 

Sir Walter Raleigh s attempts to found a settlement in 
America have been referred to in connexion with the preceding 
sketch of the colonization of Virginia for two reasons ; one being 
that the efforts of the Virginia Company were doubtless influenced 
by his example, and the other that the district in which his 
emigrants landed was at that time part of the territory called 
Virginia. Although this district is now known as North Carolina 
the fate of the Elizabethan colonists has little to do with that 
state, as over seventy years elapsed between Raleigh s last effort 
and the next organized attempt at colonization in this neigh 
bourhood. 

Between 1663 and 1665 Charles the Second granted all 
rights over a territory extending from the South of Virginia to 
the Gulf of Mexico, and from the Atlantic to the West of the 
Mississippi to a party of eight noblemen, amongst whom were 
the Earl of Clarendon, the Duke of Albemarle, Lord Ashley 
(afterwards Earl of Shaftesbury), and Sir William Berkeley, 
Governor of Virginia. But men from other American colonies had 
made their homes in Carolina before this. Virginians had been 
exploring the country for many years and, doubtless, several had 
settled there. For instance, in 1663 George Catlemaid, a Virginian, 
had established sixty-seven persons on Albemarle Sound. 

About the same time planters from Barbados had bought 
land to the South of Cape Fear, and made their homes there. 
Prior to this, a party of men from New England had sailed south 
wards and, although many returned, it seems that some were 
left on Cape Fear River. 

At first the new lords proprietors of Carolina voluntarily 
adopted conciliatory methods with these settlers and, as the result 



INTRODUCTION 

showed, no other methods could have succeeded with such men. 
For when, shortly afterwards, an attempt was made to force 
upon them an objectionable form of government which had been 
designed by John Locke, the colonists stoutly opposed it. Later 
on, they showed their spirit by deposing and exiling one governor 
for extortion and imprisoning another governor and his council 
for infringing their rights. Civil and religious liberty was thus 
assured in this region, and many Quakers and other dissenters 
migrated there in the seventeenth century. In the middle of 
the eighteenth century there was a great flood of immigration 
into the state from other American States, and also from 
England, and from various other parts of Europe. British, 
Dutch, French, and Swiss, of all denominations, many belonging 
to recognized families, poured into the now flourishing colony of 
North Carolina. 

Meanwhile, under the leadership of Joseph West, who 
acted as the commercial agent for the proprietors, and of Captain 
William Sayle a considerable number of emigrants set sail from 
England for South Carolina, where they made their settlement 
before 1670. They finally settled near Oyster Point and founded 
the village which more than a century later was incorporated as 
the city of Charleston. Reports of the rich possibilities of the 
country soon spread throughout the world. Dutch emigrants 
came from New York, soon followed by others from Holland. 
Charles the Second, at his own expense fitted out two small 
vessels to transport Protestants from the south of Europe who 
might domesticate the productions of warmer climes to this pro 
lific soil. Cavaliers sought refuge there, and even Shaftesbury 
himself, when committed to the Tower, asked leave to expatriate 
himself and become an inhabitant of Carolina. Churchmen and 
dissenters alike sought refuge here ; thousands of Huguenots, 
who fled to all parts of the world after the revocation of the 
edict of Nantes, sought homes in this state, and although the 
Spaniards laid waste one of the southern settlements, and the 
colonists had bitter struggles against the power of the lords 
proprietors, within a few years the prosperity of South Carolina 
was assured. 

References to the early history of the Carolinas will be found 
under the names of Middleton, Pinckney, Lowndes, Izard, Blake, 
and Rutledge, all of them being families that still survive.

INTRODUCTION 

The Virginia Company s settlements were the result of a The Pilgrim 
desire for fresh trade, and, although inspired by other motives, Fathers. 

Lord Baltimore looked for a material return for his expenditure and 
labours over Maryland, while the founders of the Carolinas sought 
for personal aggrandisement and gain. But next to the Virginian 
settlement in point of time, and destined to have even a greater 
effect upon the development of the country, was the colonization of 
the Northern States, which was due to the Puritans unconquerable 
desire for religious liberty. 

To understand the causes which led to the emigration of the 
Pilgrim Fathers it is necessary to glance at fifty years of England s 
history. 

The Reformation, and the counter-reformation of the 
Catholics had plunged Europe into war a war from a share in 
which neither the statecraft nor the love of compromise of Queen 
Elizabeth could keep England. Staunch supporter of episcopal 
church government as she was at home, Elizabeth was forced by 
circumstances into the position of protector abroad of those non- 
conforming sects which she endeavoured to put down with a strong 
hand within her own realm. The Puritans, who had fled to 
Germany and Switzerland during the Marian persecution, had 
returned at Elizabeth s accession imbued with religious views that 
assorted ill with the conservative principles of their sovereign. But 
inasmuch as Elizabeth, in opposition to the vast Catholic power of 
Philip of Spain, was the champion of the Protestant cause abroad, 
they gave her steadfast allegiance. They might refuse steadfastly 
to submit their private judgment to a Church of which she was 
titular head, but they were unswerving in their loyalty and 
patriotism. She might send them to the block ; she might flog 
them or mutilate them, but they remained always her devoted 
subjects. They refused obstinately and stubbornly to conform to 
the rites and ceremonies of the English Church as established under 
Queen Elizabeth ; they struggled against it with all their might ; 
the famous " Martin Mar-Prelate " tracts in which they attacked 
the Church were printed and published in the face of death and 
persecution ; yet their loyalty as Englishmen was never in question. 

Persecution, that futile weapon of tyranny, served only to 
foster the marked characteristics of the Puritans. As a great 
historian has said : " Persecution found them a sect and made them 
a faction." At first their attachment to the English Church was 

17 B 



INTRODUCTION 

undeniable ; they were for ever seeking some means by which they 
could with a good conscience become obedient servants of the 
Establishment. The accession of Whitgift in 1583 to the chair of 
St. Augustine rendered all hope of compromise impossible. Twenty 
thousand Puritans preached and prayed in their conventicles in 
defiance of the law. It is said on the authority of Heylin, that 
even the proud and stubborn spirit of Queen Elizabeth weakened 
and hesitated before their calm determination. Walsingham offered 
the Puritans, in the Queen s name, in about 1583, to give up the 
ceremony of kneeling at the Communion, the cross in Baptism, and 
the surplice. Their reply was characteristic : " Ne ungulam quidem 
esse relinquemdam." From that time onwards there was no hope 
of arrangement or surrender. Archbishop Whitgift appeared upon 
the scene, and for thirty-seven years the policy which he then 
adopted was carried on consistently until the sails of the Mayflower 
were set to the winds of the Atlantic. 

Although the dates are difficult to ascertain with any degree 
of accuracy it may safely be said that the pilgrim movement began 
within a short time of Whitgift s appointment as Archbishop of 
Canterbury. The first seeds were sown in that small tract of 
country, some four miles by six, which lies between the Rivers Idle 
and Ryton in Nottinghamshire. It began with the appointment of 
the Rev. Richard Clyfton to the Rectory of Babworth, on the 
ii July 1586. Clyfton was a " forward preacher" or reformist, 
and he boldly led the crusade against the archbishop, preaching the 
liberty of the pulpit and the uselessness of all forms of ritual. In 
January 1589 there came to his assistance a man destined to play 
a great part in the New World. At that date William Brewster 
was appointed postmaster at Scrooby, a little village six miles away 
close to the junction of the Idle and the Ryton. Brewster s method 
of helping the cause was to furnish money for the support of the 
reformist preachers in the neighbouring parish churches, " he 
himself being most commonly deepest in the charge, and sometimes 
above his ability." Clyfton and Brewster worked together for the 
cause of reform, until in 1601 they were joined in their work by 
Richard Bernard, who was appointed to the living of Worksop on 
19 June of that year. 

It should be understood that Clyfton was still within the pale 
of the Church. The separatist Church had not been formed, but 
the accession of James I hastened matters and brought about the 

18 



INTRODUCTION 

inevitable. It had been thought at first that James, coming from 
Scotland, would be prepared to regard the views of the Puritans 
as to ecclesiastical government with favour, but his remark during 
his progress south, " No bishop, no king," settled once and for 
all his real intentions. The king became a partisan of Whitgift. 
It was only because he feared their numbers that he consented 
to receive from the Puritans the famous Millenary Petition for 
a redress of ecclesiastical grievances. Policy and his pride in his 
own gifts of theological debates prompted him further to agree 
to a conference at Hampton Court. It was hardly a con 
ference ; it was more a legal lecture to the Puritans. " I will 
have none of that liberty as to ceremony," said His Majesty, 
" I will have one doctrine, one discipline, one religion in sub 
stance and ceremony. I will make you conform or I will harry 
you out of the land." His own view of the conference, which 
closed on 18 January 1604, was that he had " soundly peppered 
off the Puritans." 

A month later Archbishop Whitgift died and Bancroft 
became his successor. Conformity was insisted upon with un 
relenting rigour. The persecutions that had lapsed somewhat 
during the later days of Queen Elizabeth s reign were renewed. 
King James issued a brutally severe proclamation against the 
Puritans, who held command of the Lower House, and had 
already become identified as the party opposed to despotism. 
In the year 1604 alone three hundred Puritan ministers were 
deprived, imprisoned, or exiled. All hope of accommodation 
between the Church and the Puritans was now seen to be im 
possible, and Clyfton at Babworth in the same year started the 
separatist movement. 

In that year of trial, 1604, Clyfton was joined by an assis 
tant, the Rev. John Robinson, another Nottinghamshire man, 
and, like his rector, a Cambridge graduate. Two years later 
Clyfton became pastor of the Separatist Church at Scrooby, 
with the Rev. John Robinson as his able lieutenant. In the 
same year, at about the same time, the Rev. John Smyth, like- 
wise a Cambridge graduate, founded another branch of the 
Puritan Church at Gainsborough, on the edge of the Pilgrim 
District. 

It will be as well to recapitulate the situation of these 
Puritans at this momentous crisis. The Rev. Richard Clyfton, with 

19 B 2 



INTRODUCTION 

the Rev. John Robinson, was at Babworth. The Rev. Richard 
Bernard was giving indirect assistance to the cause at Worksop ; the 
Rev. John Smyth was righting the battle of liberty of conscience 
at Gainsborough, while William Brewster, Postmaster at Scrooby, 
was still unremitting in his support. There was also a young 
man of eighteen, William Bradford, who was constant in his atten 
dance at the ministry of the Rev. Richard Clyfton. The definite 
movement that had been set up by Clyfton and Robinson and 
Smyth brought down upon their heads the whole armoury of the 
government s wrath. Imprisonments, search warrants, trivial prosecu 
tions, and the various malice of intolerance were used to compel 
them to amend their ways. The situation became so intolerable 
that it was determined to seek safety for the Church in exile. 
It was then that a split occurred among the leaders. Clyfton 
determined to seek refuge at Amsterdam, where there still existed 
the ancient exiled Church. Bernard of Worksop refused at the 
eleventh hour to abandon the Establishment. It therefore fell to 
Robinson, as chief pastor, and Brewster, as elder, to lead their 
following to Leyden. But tyranny was even for denying them 
the privilege of exile. Their first attempt to leave was frus 
trated. For a month the whole of the company were placed 
under arrest, but at the end of that period more merciful 
counsels prevailed, and they were released, with the exception of 
the seven principal men, who were detained in prison. In the 
following spring of 1608 the attempt was renewed. The exiles, 
men and women, met on a lonely, unfrequented heath in 
Lincolnshire. The night was wild and stormy, and the embarkation 
was delayed. A part of the company were already in the boat 
that was to bear them to the ship, when a company of horsemen 
appeared in pursuit. The helpless women and children who still 
remained on the shore were seized. In spite of their tears and 
prayers they were apprehended. But even the magistrates of 
those days, creatures as they were of the king, were upright 
enough to realize the cruelty of punishing and imprisoning wives 
and children for no other crime than that of wishing to go with 
their husbands and fathers, and they allowed them at last to 
depart. And so in small companies the Puritans made their way 
from the home of their fathers to Leyden, in Holland, and took 
the first step in that long pilgrimage which was to land them in 
the New World.

INTRODUCTION 

Of the doings of the Pilgrim Church at Leyden there is not 
space to write at length. Robinson firmly established his sect, 
and his fame attracted new recruits from England, the various 
members engaged in different mechanical professions. Brewster 
printed and published Pilgrim books, and so annoyed King James 
that at the instance of the English ambassador his establishment 
was suppressed. Bradford, who had been educated as a farmer, 
learned the art of dyeing silk. In the old registers kept in the 
city hall of Leyden are to be found the entries of several marriages 
which took place among the exiles. All the evidence, in short, 
shows that they attempted to take root in Holland, but the 
climate, the language, and the customs of the country were never 
to their liking. They were still Englishmen, and not even the 
terrible persecutions they had had to endure had deprived them 
of their insularity and their love of their own kith and kin. 
Unable to return to England, they sought for some place where 
they could once more live under the government of their native 
land. They thought of Guiana, the land of which Raleigh had so 
dazzlingly written, but the tropical nature of the climate, and the 
proximity of a Catholic settlement, determined them to abandon 
the idea. They decided on Virginia. Robert Cushman and John 
Carver were sent to London to enter into negotiations with the 
Virginia Company, who still held the patent for " North 
Virginia." In their communications with the governing body in 
London, Robinson and Brewster, as the pastor and elder respec 
tively of the Pilgrim Church, announced their perfect faith and 
confidence in the success of the undertaking, saying : " It is not 
with us as with men whom small things can discourage." 

The Virginia Company looked with favour on their pro 
posal, but the king, whose approval they sought, was unrelenting 
in his antagonism. The Pilgrims persisted, however, and after 
three years, under very hard and stringent terms, they obtained 
their desire. Not having sufficient capital for the execution of 
their scheme they had to consent to the terms of the company. 
The Pilgrim band, for the purposes of this contract, was regarded 
as a numerous partnership ; the services of each member were 
to be rated at a capital of 10, which belonged to the company. 
Profits were not to be taken till the end of seven years, and the 
whole amount, with all houses and lands, gardens, and fields, was 
to be divided among shareholders according to their respective 

21 



INTRODUCTION 

interests. But hard though the terms were, the fact that their 
civil and religious liberties were assured, and this, too, under 
the government of their native land, determined the Pilgrims to 
sign the contract. 

By July 1620 all was in readiness. The Speedwell, a ship 
of 60 tons, had been purchased in London, and the Mayflower, a 
vessel of 180 tons, had been hired in England. As these ships 
could only hold a minority of the congregation, Robinson the 
pastor was detained at Leyden, according to arrangement, while 
Brewster, who had been elected ruling elder about 1613, took 
command of the Pilgrim band. On 22 July they set sail from 
Delft Haven. 

Misfortune dogged them at first. On 5 August they set sail 
from Southampton ; then it was found that the Speedwell needed 
repairs, and on 13 August they put back to the port of Dart 
mouth. Eight days later, on 21 August, they again weighed 
anchor. The captain of the Speedwell was a man ill suited for the 
adventure. He became appalled at the thought of the dangers 
that lay before him, and, on the pretence that his vessel still needed 
repairs, insisted on making Plymouth. Many of his company were 
of the same mind. It was agreed that the timid and hesitating 
should be allowed to abandon the expedition. The Speedwell was 
left behind, and the courageous and determined few, one hundred 
and two souls, were all embarked upon the Mayflower, which finally 
set sail from England on 6 September 1620. 

One William Butten died during the voyage, and two infants 
first saw the light before the Pilgrims actually landed in New 
England. One was Oceana Hopkins, born in mid-ocean, the other 
Peregrine White, who made his entrance into the world while the 
Mayflower still rode at anchor in the harbour of Cape Cod. 

On 9 November 1620, after along and boisterous voyage of 
sixty-three days, the Pilgrims sighted land, and in two days more 
were safely moored in the harbour of Cape Cod. Before they 
landed they settled the system of government under which they 
should live, and drew up the following instrument which was 
signed by the whole body of men of whom the company was 
composed : 

" In the name of God, Amen ; We, whose names are under 
written the loyal subjects of our dread sovereign King James, having 
undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancement of the Christian

John Carver, who, with Cushman, had acted as negotiator for 
the Pilgrim Church at Leyden with the "Adventurers" in London, 
was, in the cabin of the May/lower, elected Governor for the year. 
So was founded, on democratic principles, the first permanent 
English settlement in America. 

During that winter half their number died, and at one time 
there were only seven who were not striken down with sickness, 
yet when the Mayflower returned the following April not one ot 
the settlers went with her. Governor Carver died, and Bradford was 
elected to succeed him. Once afterwards, in a time of trial and 
depression, the colonists thought of removal, but that was only 
a passing phase. In a few years, although at first its growth was 
very slow, the success of the community was assured, and in spite 

2 3 



INTRODUCTION 

of the efforts of Bradford to keep them at Plymouth, detachments 
of the settlers migrated and independent settlements were formed. 

The following families of the Pilgrim Fathers are still surviving 
in the male line : the Brewsters, Bradfords, Allcrtons, Winslows, 
Cushmans, and Standishes. 

The The settlement of the Pilgrim Fathers paved the way for 

Puritans. another settlement of greater magnitude, and, although all credit 

must be assigned to those men who founded the first Puritan 
Colony, the second migration was far more important. Indeed, 
from the genealogical standpoint there can hardly be any com 
parison between the two enterprises. The Pilgrim Fathers were 
few in numbers, and among them there were hardly any descen 
dants of recognized English families. The company of Puritans 
which after the formation of the company of Massachusetts Bay 
settled in that region in 1 630 were not only more than ten times 
more numerous, but many of them were men of high endow 
ments, large fortunes, and the best education, and their boldness 
and wisdom had an immediate and lasting effect upon the history 
of America. Yet, for some reason, partly perhaps because the 
earlier settlement appeals more to the imagination, many Americans 
who are really descended from such honourable forbears mis 
takenly persist in claiming descent from the Pilgrim Fathers. 

In 1627 the idea of establishing a fresh colony on the shores 
of New England began to take definite shape in the minds of 
men who desired to free themselves from the constraints they 
suffered under in England. In 1628, having formed themselves 
into a company, they purchased a patent from the New England 
council, which was little concerned at making grants of territory 
that had already been purchased. White, a Puritan minister of 
Dorchester, was the moving spirit, and the patent was granted 
to Sir Henry Roswell, Sir John Young, Thomas Southcoat, John 
Humphrey, John Endicot, and Simon Whitcomb, gentlemen of 
Dorchester. Some of these original purchasers afterwards sold 
their rights to new-comers, who, possessed of a kindred spirit and 
religious fervour, were found by the zealous White in or around 
London. Among these new-comers were men bearing names 
destined to be notable in the history of the making of America, 
such names as Winthrop, Dudley, Johnson, and Pynchon. 

In 1628 John Endicot, with his wife and family and nearly 
a hundred emigrants, sailed to Massachusetts, and sent back word 

24 



INTRODUCTION 

of his safe arrival. In the meantime the company had enlisted 
the sympathies of influential Puritans throughout England, and 
in 1629, after much trouble and expenditure, the company of 
Massachusetts Bay was granted a charter ; only a few days before 
Charles the First in a State paper announced his intention of 
governing without a Parliament. It should be noted that the 
charter thus secured did not assign to the colonists freedom of 
religion. Higginson, Hooker, and Cotton, who took prominent 
parts in the colonizing movement, were all ministers of the Church 
of England, and, at the time the charter was granted, neither 
patentees nor government seemed to foresee that the new state 
was inevitably destined to be wholly Puritan. 

In 1629, under the leadership of Francis Higginson, a band 
of two hundred emigrants arrived at Salem. The spirit in which 
they sailed from their native land may be gathered from the fact 
that before leaving, the company was winnowed and all servants 
of ill life were discharged. Arrived in Massachusetts, John and 
Samuel Browne, devout members of the Church of England, 
protested against the nonconformity of the community, with the 
result that they were seized like criminals and transported back 
to England. 

The news of the new settlement and of the establishment 
of their form of religion there spread like wildfire among the 
sterner Puritans of England. They looked upon Massachusetts, 
a place where they could worship in their own fashion, as though 
it were a veritable " promised land," and enrolled their names by 
the hundred for emigration. Then, on the suggestion of Matthew 
Cradock, the governor of the company, a bold stroke was taken. 
It was proposed and carried that the charter of the company 
should be transferred to those of the freemen who should them 
selves inhabit the colony. At Cambridge (England) an agreement 
was come to between a number of men of consequence that they 
would all embark for America if the government of the " planta 
tion " should be legally transferred to them and other freemen. 
The subject was brought before the Court, and it was declared 
that the government and patent might be transferred across 
the Atlantic. Nominally this decision only settled where the 
future meetings of the company should be held ; practically it 
changed a commercial corporation into an independent provincial 
government. 

25 



INTRODUCTION 

The result was that, with John Winthrop as governor, 
nearly fifteen hundred persons sailed for Massachusetts during 
the following season. 

They landed amid scenes of desolation. Many of the earlier 
colonists had died ; the supplies of corn were scanty in the extreme. 
Before the end of a year over a hundred, dreading famine and 
death, sailed back to England, and over two hundred of those 
who remained died. The men who had turned back painted the 
terrors of the colony in the most lively colours, with the result 
that during 1631 and 1632 less than three hundred and fifty 
emigrants came from England. But in spite of all hardships and 
discouragements, the colonists, cheered by Winthrop, struggled 
bravely on. Their leaders met at Boston, and decided on a form 
of government more or less representative ; they established 
friendly relations with the Pilgrims, made treaties of peace with 
the neighbouring Indians, and opened up trade with the Dutch 
on the Hudson River. 

This happy news, sent to England with invitations by 
Winthrop, caused the flow of emigrants to increase, and among 
those who crossed the Atlantic during 1633 were Haynes, renowned 
alike for wealth and piety, and Cotton, the eloquent and sagacious 
Calvinistic scholar. 

During the next few years the electors of the Puritan colony 
engaged in a struggle with their leaders for a purely representa 
tive form of government, and after some time they secured it, 
together with a written constitution, and, sign of their growing 
independence, a condition that every freeman should pledge his 
allegiance not to King Charles, but to Massachusetts. While this 
struggle was in progress, Roger Williams, a young Puritan minister, 
boldly asserted the right of man to worship exactly as he pleased, 
or, indeed, not to worship at all unless he pleased. Although 
the Puritans had fled from religious tyranny in England, freedom 
in matters of religion was no part of their belief, and eventually 
Williams was exiled. Followed by some devout admirers he left 
Massachusetts and established the first settlement in Rhode Island. 
Another religious dissension was responsible for a party leaving the 
parent colony for Connecticut. Then, shortly afterwards, another 
Puritan colony sprang up at New Haven. Thus the original 
settlements led to others, but by 1643 a great war with the 
Indians caused Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Haven, and New 

26 



INTRODUCTION 

Plymouth to form the confederacy that is often referred to as the 
prototype of that greater confederacy which conducted the War of 
Independence. 

Among the historic Puritan families still surviving in male 
line are the Cottons, Mathers, Winthrops, Bulkeleys, Faunces, 
Pynchons, and Chaunceys. 

One of the latest important colonizations in the eastern states The 

of America was due to the cruel persecutions which the Quakers Quakers, 

suffered both in England and on the Continent. From the time 
of the Long Parliament until after the restoration of Charles the 
Second these peaceful followers of George Fox were harried without 
mercy. In small bodies many of them had fled across the Atlantic 
before the foundation of Pennsylvania, but in several of the 
American settlements they were liable to treatment as severe as 
that meted out to them in Europe. Consequently after many years 
of bitter suffering they sought to establish a colony of their own. 

In 1674 the English having taken from the Dutch the regions 
round the Hudson and Delaware, known as the New Netherlands, 
Berkeley sold the moiety of New Jersey to Quakers, to John 
Fenwick in trust for Edward Byllinge and his assigns for a thou 
sand pounds. In 1675 Fenwick with a large company set sail 
for the asylum of Friends. Ascending the Delaware he named the 
spot where they first settled Salem. 

Byllinge became embarrassed in his fortunes, and Gawen 
Laurie, William Penn, and Nicholas Lucas became his assigns as 
trustees for his creditors. These assigns eventually secured for 
the Quakers the right of self-government, and men and women 
flocked to the new settlement where they might worship God after 
their own fashion. 

William Penn, deeply interested in the growth of the Quaker 
colony on the Delaware, sought for a grant of territory on the 
opposite side of the river, and after encountering some opposition 
secured it from Charles the Second, who was indebted to the 
Quaker for a loan advanced to the crown by Penn s father. This 
region was named Pennsylvania, and on Penn s publishing in 
England and on the Continent the statement that his would be a 
free colony for all mankind, crowds came thither from all parts of 
England, from the Low Countries, from Germany, and from 
France. In Pennsylvania there already existed Swedish, Dutch, 
and English settlements, but thanks to the beneficent government 

27 



INTRODUCTION 

instituted by the famous Quaker, all dwelt together in amity ; just 
as, thanks to his wisdom and humanity, they succeeded in estab 
lishing peaceful relations with the neighbouring Indians. 

The best known of the historic Quaker families that survive 
in the male line are : the Gilpins, Biddies, Morrises, Thomases, 
Whartons, and Shoemakers. 

The In the history of the Dutch immigrations we again find proof 

that most of the colonization of America was due to the religious 
dissensions of Europe. When Philip II. of Spain inherited the 
sovereignty of the Netherlands he united with the Roman Church 
to stamp out the first flames of political liberty. The men of the 
Netherlands rose, and one of the most memorable conflicts in the 
history of the world began. Philip responded by the establish 
ment of arbitrary tribunals and the imposition of arbitrary taxation. 
Troops under Alva were poured into the country, but the Dutch, 
animated, as Sidney told Queen Elizabeth, " by the invincible 
spirit of God," rose en masse, and, electing the Prince of Orange as 
their Stadtholder, seized the harbour of Briel and united to drive 
the foreign troops from their territory. The union of the five 
northern provinces at Utrecht, which sprang from the revolution, 
laid the foundations of the republic of the United Netherlands. It 
was a state that looked to the sea for its prosperity. It was a nation 
of merchants, or, as the phrase was then," adventurers," and in every 
part of the world their flag was to be seen. Amsterdam became 
the first commercial city of the world, and Spain, despoiled of her 
provinces, had to submit to her territory and her commerce being 
preyed upon by the small nation which defied her power and had 
shaken off her yoke. 

In 1597 the first Dutch voyage was made to the New World, 
and from that time onwards the merchants of Holland carried on 
a trade with America. Their actual settlement there was due, in the 
first place, to their endeavour to find a north-west passage by which 
they could tap more easily the vast riches of Asia. The Dutch East 
India Company, which originated in 1602, received seven years later 
an offer from Henry Hudson, the famous English explorer, to 
discover the North-west Passage. The offer was accepted, and on 
4 April the Crescent, commanded by Hudson and manned by a mixed 
crew of Englishmen and Hollanders, set sail. On 3 September 
following the Crescent anchored within Sandy Hook, and New 
York was discovered. The subsequent cruel fate of Hudson, who 

28 



INTRODUCTION 

was left by his mutinous crew to die in the deserts of arctic ice, 
did not lessen the value of his discovery. As New York had been 
discovered by their agent, the Dutch East India Company claimed 
the possession of the country on the Hudson for the United 
Provinces. They desired this territory solely for trading purposes, 
and not for colonization, and though there were one or two rough 
huts built on the island of Manhattan in 1613, they were 
there solely as temporary residences for the Dutch mariners 
and fur traders. It was not until the internal affairs of the 
United Provinces had been settled that the Dutch became a 
colonizing force. 

The provinces which had united for the sole purpose of 
opposing the tyranny of Spain would have resolved themselves 
once more into their respective units had it not been for the action 
of Prince Maurice, their Stadtholder. The country was divided 
into two camps : those who maintained the sovereignity of each 
state within its own borders the aristocratic party and the party 
who claimed the right of the States General to direct the policy of 
the United Provinces. Prince Maurice, who was the leader of the 
latter section, favoured the colonization of America. The aristo 
cratic party opposed his view, and it was not until 29 August 1618, 
when the successful coup d etat^ made by the Stadtholder with the 
consent of the popular party, settled the vexed question of internal 
government once and for all, that he was able to fulfil his colonial 
aspirations. 

Three years later the Dutch West India Company was 
endowed by charter with the exclusive privilege of trafficking and 
planting colonies on the coast of Africa from the Tropic of Cancer 
to the Cape of Good Hope, and on the coast of America from the 
Straits of Magellan to the remotest north. The stock of the 
company was thrown open for subscription to the whole world. 

Cornelius May, whose name still survives in the southern 
county and cape of New Jersey, visited Manhattan, entered the 
bay, and, sailing up the Delaware River, formally took possession 
of the territory which the company already claimed as the discovery 
of its agent, Henry Hudson. Fort Nassau was built on Timber 
Creek, and the whole country from the southern shore of Dela 
ware Bay to Cape Cod was christened the New Netherlands. On 
Manhattan a block-house was erected, and before many years had 
passed there began to cluster round it quaint cottages with straw 

29 



INTRODUCTION 

roofs and wooden chimneys, and the windmills which are so 
strongly associated with the native land of the settlers. This was 
the beginning of New York. 

The settlers, discontented with the rule of the company, 
bethought themselves of buying land direct from the natives, and 
thereby establishing a personal title to their property. Godyn 
purchased of the natives all the land from Cape Henlopen to the 
mouth of Delaware River, and his example was followed by others. 
Friction with the governing body of the company at home inevit 
ably followed a friction that was not lessened by the discovery 
that the land obtained in this way was almost immediately colonized, 
the remaining territory of the company being almost ignored. 

But the settlement in Delaware, which was planted by Godyn, 
Van Rensselaer, Bloemart, and De Laet, was destroyed by the 
Indians, and every settler was ruthlessly killed. New Amsterdam 
in 1633 was still the only Dutch settlement of any importance in 
the New Netherlands, for the continued friction between the 
colonists and the agents of the company, and between the agents 
and the governing body at Amsterdam, checked all progress. 
War with the Indians, encroachments of the English and the 
Swedes, and the ridiculous policy of restricted trade insisted upon 
by the company, almost succeeded in obliterating the Dutch settle 
ment ; and it was not until the arrival of Stuyvesant, as Governor 
of the Province, in 1646, that the settlement may be said to have 
become firmly established. 

This colony flourished and attracted many immigrants from 
Holland ; but, as the British Settlements to the north and south 
grew in strength, the existence of a territory between them which 
at any moment might bring about hostilities was felt to be unen 
durable. In 1664, while England and Holland were at war, an 
English fleet took possession of the New Netherlands, and, as 
Charles had granted it to his brother the Duke of York, the 
province and its city were named New York in his honour. 

The chief historic Dutch families still surviving in the male 
line are : The Van Cortlandts, Schermerhorns, Van Rensselaers, 
Stuyvesants, Kips, Beekmans, de Peysters, Vanderbilts, Van Burens, 
and Schuylers. 

The The earliest attempt to form a permanent colony in North 

Huguenots. America was made by the French ; and it is a Frenchman, Coligny, 

the great leader of the Huguenots in the reign of Charles IX., to 

3 



INTRODUCTION 

whom we must give the credit of having first conceived the idea 
of forming an empire across the Atlantic. 

Anxious to secure a place of refuge for men of his faith, he 
obtained a commission from the French king, and sent out a party 
to where St. Augustine now stands. The result was disastrous. 
The first party lost heart and sailed for home while another 
expedition was on its way to succour them. Settling down in 
this district, this second party was brutally massacred by a Spanish 
expedition, who would not suffer heretics and foreigners upon 
soil which they regarded as within the dominions of their king. 

It was many years before there was another attempt to plant 
a French settlement in the country now known as the United 
States. 

The next posts of any consequence that they established were 
due to the enterprise of their Canadian colonists, who, making 
their way down the Mississippi in the latter part of the seventeenth 
century, built forts at intervals as far south as the Gulf of Mexico, 
the idea being to hedge the English colonists in. Joliet and La 
Salle explored this tract of land ; and in 1700 D Iberville founded 
Mobile, New Orleans being founded by the French Mississippi 
Company a few years later. 

But it was the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 
which was responsible for the great influx of the French into 
North America. The persecuted Huguenots, tortured in every 
possible manner at home, were forbidden to emigrate, and the 
coasts and frontiers of France were strictly guarded to prevent 
their flight. But though the dangers of trying to escape from 
the country were immense, they attempted it. By stealth in the 
dead of night, family after family crept to the frontier, and 
reached a place of safety. Many abandoned all in their flight, 
caring nothing about their property as long as they could be free. 
It is estimated that 500,000 persons half a million of the best 
French citizens left the country. Some sought England. A 
whole suburb of London was filled with Huguenot mechanics. 
The Prince of Orange recruited regiment after regiment from 
among the exiles. Some went as far as the Cape of Good Hope, 
where their descendants survive to this day. Many found a 
warm welcome in New England, the hope of fugitives from 
religious persecution. Some repaired to New York and the 
Dutch Settlement. But of the emigrants to the New World, the 

3 1 



INTRODUCTION 

majority sought South Carolina, the warmth of the climate corre 
sponding more to that in which they had been accustomed to live, 
and possibly the recollection that it was there that their ancestors 
had endeavoured to found a City of Refuge accounting for their 
selection. 

From every part of France they arrived. They obtained an 
assignment of lands, and built their church at Charleston. Soon 
under the influence of their skill and industry, the settlement 
waxed and flourished, and free from the cruel persecutions of 
their native land, the Huguenots exerted an influence upon the 
future great Republic which is felt to this day. 

Chief among the Huguenot families who survive in the 
male line, are those of Ravenel, Mazyck, Porcher, Cordes, Bayard, 
Rhinelander, Huger, and de Lancey. 

These were the principal European settlements of America, and 
most of the historic families of the United States are descended 
from ancestors whose names are mentioned in the preceding pages. 

But in addition to these families, there are many others which 
demand a place in a work of this character. Some of recognized 
European lineage have immigrated since the time of these early 
settlements ; others have achieved distinction in the course of 
the three centuries that have elapsed since the establishment of 
the first American colony. 

This work would indeed be incomplete if it did not include 
the genealogies of the Livingstons, Nicolls, Halseys, McKeens, 
Talcotts, Bonapartes, Iselins, Hewitts, Fishes, Harrimans, Lorillards,

DESCENT 

There is a tradition that Daniel Candler, the founder of this distinguished 
American family, was a son of Thomas Candler, of Callan, co. Kilkenny, whose 
father, William Candler, an officer in Cromwell s army, had settled in Ireland. This 
tradition, however, appears to be based upon insufficient authority, inasmuch as the 
will of the above-named Thomas Candler (made 14 Oct. 1719, and proved 30 Oct. 
1719), while mentioning the testator s sons, of whom the eldest was then under 
the age of 24, contains no reference to a son named Daniel.
