INTRODUCTION. 

To rightly study history, to gain something more from 
it than a mere knowledge of names and dates, in other 
words to acquire a clear, comprehensive and just under- 
standing of a given time and people, it is self-evident 
the student should acquaint himself with the writers of 
the age under examination and whenever possible with 
original documents. It also behooves him to be con- 
stantly on his guard, if he is indeed seeking truth, not to 
communicate his ideas to the period he is studying: to 
imagine the past is like the present, that the men of 
the time were like those of to-day, having the same ideals, 
the same manner of seeing and feeling, for if he does, 
he will fall into deplorable errors of judgment, inexcus- 
able mistakes by either overrating an epoch, giving it 
virtues it never possessed, or on the other hand wrongly 
taxing it with being ignorant or degenerate. 

It is plain from the foregoing dicta that in order to 
have a right conception, of the past, we must keep in 
mind that the inconceivable to us may have been per- 
fectly natural to the men of those times, that their souls 
were of quite another temper from our own, and al- 
though they viewed things differently and took pleasure 
in what is now repugnant, nevertheless, they were in ac- 
cord with the spirit of their age, were legitimate chil- 
dren of its genius, and therefore must be judged accord- 
ingly. It is the only safe and fair way to securely come 
to a just knowledge of real beings in their real life 
and growth and to analyze truthfully their actual lives. 
In other words, if we wish to form a true and altogether 
unbiased picture in our minds of the past we must 
in our imagination live and converse w T ith its men, be-

come one of them, moved by the same motives, seeing 
all things from their point of view. In order to ac- 
complish this somewhat difficult task: to call forth gen- 
erations from the tomb and make them live again and 
understand the propelling force of their actions, there is 
no greater help than a studious perusal of contemporary 
documents. And here, in this Old Town Records, we 
have such a document. A rendition of New Rochelle's 
seventeenth and eighteenth century public archives, the 
originals of which are written in a mixture of English 
and French, and evidently not by scholars; moreover this 
transcription and the translations are not only erudite, 
but are also conscientious, accurate and unabridged. 
Indeed it is a valuable publication, one which must prove 
of great interest to all intelligent citizens of New Ro- 
chelle, to all those who care to obtain a true understand- 
ing of the external everyday life of its first settlers, as 
it will materially enable them to comprehend their spirit, 
their feelings and the guiding principles of their religions, 
civic and social life. 

At the end of the seventeenth century, contemporary 
with the settlement of New Roehelle, Europe had almost 
recovered from the shock of the Reformation and its sub- 
sequent relentless and often malevolent religious contro- 
versies, but the persecutions, oppressions and wars they 
provoked were still rife, and all this in opposition to 
the general awaking in Central and Northern Europe to 
the value of the arts, sciences and commercial industries : 
the fruits of peace; and also in spite of the compelling 
and adventurous spirit that was abroad to enter by trade 
and travel into a greater intercommunication with men 
of various nations; and above all contrary to the then 
abiding and awaking desire found everywhere, among 
all conditions of men, for enfranchisement from inherited 
feudalism, co-existing with a growing belief in the doc- 
trine of personal liberty, a foreshadowing as it were of 
modern Democracy. 



Introduction*. yn 

In England James Stuart, when Duke of York and 
afterwards in 1685 on becoming King, openly declared his 
disapprobation of religious persecution, and used all his 
influence, not only for the relief of oppressed Englishmen 
of every faith, but also for the many Protestant refugees 
who had fled from the religious and political perse- 
cutions in France and Flanders, more particularly those 
who sought an asylum in Great Britain and its colonies 
from the persecutions which they suffered at the hands 
of Louis XIV, when he revoked the Edict of Nantes in 
1685, an edict which had been issued eighty-seven years 
before by Henry IV in favor of his Protestant subjects. 
This revocation by Louis, together with his attacks on 
the Huguenots, Jansenists and Quietists was merely car- 
rying to its logical conclusion his theory of absolutism 
and belief in the divine origin of the royal power, 
spurred on by his enormous egotistical bigotry, and not 
because of his religious faith. 

Although most of these refugees known as Huguenot, 
a name imported into France from Geneva and first used 
as a term of reproach, a word of doubtful etymology, 
but probably derived from the German eidgenoss: an 
oath-fellow, a confederate, were honest men and women, 
industrious and skilful artisans, nevertheless they were 
not received with feelings of pity or regarded with favor 
by their fellow Protestants in England. John Bull in 
the seventeenth century always objected to the presence 
of foreigners, believing as he did that England had much 
to fear from foreign ambition, so took good care to keep 
them and all strangers from over the sea under the 
watchful eye of the parochial authorities, enrolling them: 
their name, place of birth, age, occupation and residence. 
As early as 1630, after the fall of La Kochelle, the last 
Protestant place of refuge in France, Maltravers, Earl 
of Arundel and Surry, thought to utilize these foreigners 
dwelling in England by making them colonists, and with 
their assistance establish a feudal principality in Amer- 



vni Introduction. 

ica, south of Virginia. A settlement to that end was 
attempted, under the leadership of one Captain Sauce, 
a Huguenot adventurer, but in the end the venture 
proved a failure. Later, however, many Huguenots 
found permanent homes in the American colonies. After 
the revocation of the Edict of Nantes more than two 
hundred families, fleeing from the religious bigotry of 
King Louis, reached New York and were welcomed by 
its inhabitants. It was a propitious time, as the then gov- 
ernor : Col. Thomas Dongan, a broadminded gentleman 
and an able diplomat, had just proclaimed by proclama- 
tion, under the authority and by direction of the Duke 
of York, religious toleration to all, which Charter Liber- 
tics was confirmed by the first elected legislative body of 
the colony (Oct. 17, 1683) and upon which are based all 
of the later Constitutions of the State of New York. 

Nineteen or twenty years before the coming of the 
Huguenots to New York, when Col. Richard Nicholls 
was governor, there was living at Fairfield, Conn., Mr. 
Thomas Pell, at one time "Gentleman of the bedcham- 
ber" to King Charles I, a son of the Rev. John Pell, in- 
cumbent of Southwyck, in the County of Sussex in 
England, who appeared before the Court of Assize at New 
York on Sept. 29, 1665, and claimed that he had bought 
in the year 1654 certain lands from the Indians, and 
he asked that this purchase and his title to the same be 
confirmed by letter patent. In compliance with his re- 
quest there was issued to him on the 8th day of October, 
1666, a Royal Patent giving him the ownership of the 
lands he claimed were his and afterwards known as 
Pelham Manor: a tract to the Eastward of Westchester 
bounds, bounded to the Westward with the river called 
by the Indians, Acjucouncke, commonly known by the 
English, by the name of Hutchinson's river, which run- 
neth into the Bay lying between Throckmorton's neck 
and Ann Hooks neck, commonly called Hutchinson's 
Bay, bounded on the East, by a brook called Cedar Tree 



Introduction. ix 

Brook or Gravelly Brook, on the South by the sound 
which lyeth between Long Island and the main land, with 
all the islands in the Sound, not already granted or other- 
wise disposed- of, lying before that tract of land so bound- 
ed as is before expressed, and northwards, to run into the 
woods about eight English miles in breadth as the bounds 
to the Sound. 

Upon the death in 1669 of Thomas Pell his nephew be- 
came the next proprietor of Pelham Manor, in accord- 
ance with the will of his uncle, where he says—/ doe 
make my nephew, John Pell, living in ould England, the 
only sonne of my only brother John Pell, Doctor of 
Divinity, which he had by his first wife, my whole and 
sole heire of all my lands and houses in any parte of New 
England, or in ye territoryes of ye Duke of Yorke. 

This John Pell, a young* bachelor, well educated, and 
probably an attorney-at-law, lost no time in taking pos- 
session of his inheritance, for it is of record he arrived 
in Boston in the Fall of 1670 and in Fairfield, Con- 
necticut, before the end of the year, but just the date of 
his advent at Pelham Manor is not known. His bachelor- 
hood must have been very sweet to him, as he did not 
marry until 1681 in his 41st year, taking for his wife 
Rachel Abigail, the youngest daughter of his near neigh- 
bor Philip Pinckney, Esq., one of the first patentees of 
Eastchester. He took an active part in all public matters, 
and for some years was Judge of the Court of Common 
Pleas for Westchester County. Fifteen years before his 
death, which occurred by drowning while he was sailing 
in his pleasure boat off City Island in 1702, he obtained a 
Royal Patent, dated the five and twentyeth day of Octo- 
ber, in the third year of the Kinge Majesty e's reigne, 
(James II.) and in the year of the Lord one thousand 
six hundred eighty-seven, confirming him in his right to 
The Lordship and Manor of Pelham. And in the follow- 
ing year "for a valuable consideration" he and his wife 
Rachel conveyed to Jacob Leisler of New York, merchant, 



x Introduction. 

all that tract of land in the Manor Pelham (now called 
New Rochelle) containing six thousand acres, also one 
hundred acres of land for the use of the "French church 
erected or to be erected by the inhabitants'' of New 
Rochelle. Jacob Leisler on his part agreed that he, his 
heirs and assigns would present "on every four and 
twentieth day of June, yearly and every year forever if 
demanded" by John Tell and his heirs, one fat calf, 
as an acknowledgment of the manorial lordship. 

This Jacob Leisler, commissioned by the French 
Huguenots to obtain the above named land for their use: 
for those in New York and for their fellow refugees to 
arrive from Europe and elsewhere, and also for those 
already settled upon it, viz: the Cothonneau, Allaire, 
Fourrestier and other families, was a well to do and 
rich merchant, a man of French ancestry but born in 
Germany, a staunch Calvinistic Protestant and a pro- 
nounced Anti-Jacobin, with strong democratic tendencies. 
Hence he was very popular with the common people, who 
were bitterly opposed to the Dutch and English govern- 
ing classes, and who not only made him Mayor of New- 
York but also Governor of the Province. His end however 
was a sad one, as he was hung as a traitor, a catastrophe 
brought about by the connivance of the aristrocratic 
Van Cortlandts and Bayards, although he was allied 
to them by marriage. This execution took place a 
year after he had released to the Huguenots the last 
parcel of land purchased for them from John Pell, 
hence their titles were not affected by the confiscation of 
his possessions by the government at the time of his 
death. 

The publication of these original and early records of 
New Rochelle will be of the utmost value to both students 
of local and state history, presenting as they do a picture 
truly characteristic of the times in which they were 
written ; and further these texts of bygone days will prove 
of deep interest to every one living in New Rochelle, 



Introduction. xi 

as they will give them not only the pleasure of getting 
back for a while into the days of the founders of the city, 
a time when there was more honesty in life than in this 
age of wanton luxury, although the human heart beat 
as passionately then as now, but will also enable them to 
arrive at a fuller realization of the phenomenal changes 
that have taken place since the first settlement of New 
Kochelle; in no particular more so, than its having 
grown from a small hamlet inhabited by a people of one 
religions faith, nurturing exclusively a form of Calvinism 
of the strictest sort, into a large city populated by people 
of every faith and no faith, yet, held indissolubly to- 
gether by a bond of charity so broad it will not allow one 
citizen to be estranged from another because of religious 
differences. It can be truthfully said that New Rochelle 
of to-day, because of this spirit of toleration and in union 
with a sterling Huguenot leaven, is a city of peace, where 
the people of every nationality, religious belief and 
political creed are united in a common endeavor to make 
it a moral and law abiding community. 

It is to be hoped that the publication of these Domestic 
State Papers w T ill lead to other manuscripts and docu- 
ments which are now preserved in public and private 
hands seeing the light and being issued in an equally as 
permanent form.

The twenty eighth day of March, one thousand seven

the County of Westchester. 

Province of Xew York — I, Ambroise Sicard, living in the 
said place of Xew Rochelle, considering that there is noth- 
ing more certain than death, though the hour of such being 
uncertain, have wished, so as to keep good peace and family 
harmony between Ambroise Sicard, my oldest son; Daniel 
Sicard, Jacques Sicard, Guillaume Landrin and Marie 
Sicard, Francois Coquiller and Silvie Sicard, all my chil- 
dren and daughters, to declare my last will relating to 
the little property which it has pleased God to give me, and 
as I want them and desire them to divide it among them- 
selves after the Lord will have recalled me from this world 
to join Him, according to my hope. In the first place, 
I so will and desire that my son, Ambroise, shall have 
forever for himself and his heirs the house in which he 
now dwells, with five acres of land adjoining it, besides 
the two thirds of 95 acres of land which I acquired of 
Guillaume le Conte and will take these two thirds on one 
end to the salt meadows ; on the other to the lands of Pel- 
etreau from one side to the lands of Guillaume le Conte 
and the other to the other third of my said land, on which 
third there will be allowed to him a passageway of the 
width of twenty feet between the said Conte and the said

third. Secondly, I so will and desire that my son, Daniel 
Sicard, shall have for himself and his heirs the house in 
which I am now dwelling, with the eighty acres of land 
which belong to it, as I have acquired them of the late 
Mr. Pelletreau, and that in the most part in compensa- 
tion for my work. Thirdly, I so will and desire that my 
son, Jacques Sicard, shall have for himself and his heirs 
the house in which he now dwells

Amen, at New Rochelle, Manor of Pelham, in the Province 
of New York, in America, the fifth day of October, One 
Thousand seven hundred, I, Jean Martin, Ploughman, liv- 
ing in the said town of New Rochelle, being for the pres- 
ent, by the Grace of God, sound of mind and judgment, 
though afflicted of sickness, knowing of nothing more cer- 
tain than death, though the hour of it is most uncertain, 
have had written this present act of deed, which is my 
testament and declaration of my last will, in the following 
form. 

In the first place — I commend my Soul to God, Creator 
and Saviour of the World; imploring Him to receive me in 
His favour through the merits of the precious blood of 
Our Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. 

Secondly, I ask of my wife, Anne Martin, if she sur- 
vives me, to bury my body in suitable simplicity. 

Thirdly — I declare as absolute truth that my said wife 
and myself, arriving in this place of New Rochelle, desti- 
tute, and having nothing but our hands to earn our bread, 
we have worked by the sweat of our brow to establish and 
erect the house in which we now live, and plough and enclose

cattle and other movable goods which belong to ns. That 
is why I think it jnst and reasonable and it is my testa-

have pleased the Lord to take me imto Him, my said wife, 
Anne Martin, shall enter in full and entire possession and 
shall be absolute and undisturbed mistress of all that 
which belongs to me, — the house, tilled and unfilled lands, 
goods and cattle of all kinds which are in this said place of 
New Roehelle, as well as in the place of New Oxford, 
where we previously lived, in New England. Giving full 
power to my said wife, by these presents, as guardian and 
trustee of my children, who, at my death, will still be 
young, and praying my said children to obey and assist her 
as it is their duty. In testimony of faith I have had the 
above written in presence of witnesses undersigned the

CES BETWEEN LANGEVIN AND SUIRE— 1713 

The 16th Jan, 1713, the Sieur Zacharie Langevin and 
the sieurs Pierre Berthin and Isaac Das, son, have come 
to have registered on the Record of New Rochelle what 
follows, viz : That the said Sieur Zacharie Langevin, in 
presence of the said Srs Pre, Berthin and Isaaq Das, son, 
went to the widow Suire, asking her to fence between the 
Sieur Langevin and herself or, better still, would she 
not prefer to pay him for the fences. 

To which the said Suire answered that she did not 
want to fence and that the fences belonged to her; upon 
what her son-in-law asked him to wait until the 
fences were built and that he would fence and as since 
then they have not settled the matter the Sieur Langevin, 
in presence of the said Sieurs Berthin and Das have 
again, this day, 16th of January, 1713, gone to the said 
Suire to tell her to fence or to pay for the fences she 
answered him she would not do it until the fences were 
rotted, and as the said fences all belonged to the said 
Langevin he told her that if it were not done in three 
months from this day he would take down the fences so 
as to have their land in common, upon which she an- 
swered, she defied him to do it and that she had bought 
with the land the fences that were upon it for a distance 
of 10 to 11 panels which the seller of the land told her 
belonged to the said Langevin; also the said Aman 
Guion, her son-in-law, said to the sd Langevin that in 
reference to the middle fence, which was in the middle 
of the land of the said Suire and which also belonged 
to the said Langevin, he would give her an answer in

a few days, which he only did this 16th day of Janu- 
ary when he told her that he had bought every thing. 

This day, the 25 of January, 1713-14 we, the under- 
signed, Charles Fourrestier and Pierre Langevin, have 
decided together that for the land, that, I, Charles Four-

Allaire, my Godchild, as well as the 6P. 7S that her 
father owes me, making a voluntary gift of everything to 
my said Godchild; and as for the land of Mr. Louis 
Bonnaud or of its profit; in case you sell it, you will 
dispose of it according to his wishes. This clause is taken

Be it known to all, that Zacbarie Angevin and 
Andre Naudin, Junior, having passed an act of agree- 
ment and understanding, dated the 20th of January, 
1706-7 and in which one of the clauses was that they 
would convey themselves to the big lot which they 
purchased of Jos. Deban to make an equal and fair 
division of each ones' share so as to know well their 
share and to execute this clause in their act of agree- 
ment the tenth of February of the present year, 1706-7, 
accompanied by their friends, Pierre Parcot and Daniel 
Sicard, they have conveyed themselves to the big lot and 
have agreed upon their division, as follows : 

Taking the land of said lot in its length, they divided 
it in equal portions. And as they cast lots as they 
had agreed, the half which adjoins the lot of Andris, 
fell to Zacharie Angevin, and that which on the other

side adjoins the lot of Louis Guion fell to Andre 
Naudin. For which they hold each other satisfied. As 
much as it is mentioned in the act of agreement, to 
which this is relative, that after the division of the said 
big lot, Andre Naudin will mark off with stakes to the 
said Zacharie Angevin the nine acres which he will cede 
him after the death of Andre Naudin, their father. In 
consideration of the nine acres making one half of the 
small lot which Zacharie Angevin will relinquish in 
favor of the said Andre Naudin, the said Andre Naudin, 
declares and assigns these nine acres on the end of his 
share on the west side : which is satisfactory to the 
said Zacharie Angevin. Both wishing that this declara- 
tion end all difficulties which could arise between them 
or their heirs, now or after the death of their said 
father, Andre Naudin. It is well understood that the 
nine acres which Andre Nudin assigns and stakes 
off are on the length of the border of his land, and the 
said Zacharie Angevin agreeing to give the said Andre 
Naudin, a path of the length of

New York April 10th 1824 
Dear Sir 

After some delay we have obtained the acct of the 
executors of Henderson, They admit to have reed in all 
|16885 .75 They have paid 85 percent on all the legacies 
except from the Town house of New Rochelle and for 
Elizabeth the mother for the former they have retained 
in their hands $1020 for the latter $2040 being in each 
case 85 prcent on the sum bequeathed 

It does not appear that they have put any of this 
money out at interest. 

the Balance in their hands they make $270.38 as their 



New Rochellei Town Records. 439 

acct contains a great many items of Expenditures for 
the estate with the propriety of which we are inac- 
quainted we have thought it better to have you see it 
before we proceed further before the master and there- 
fore request, (if you think it important) that you will 
come down the first convenient opportunity, we are 
aware that the great question is wether Elizabeth's 
Legacy should not be appropriated towards paying the 
other legacies in full she being in all probability dead 
long Since and we shall inforce this point most 
streniously, but it may be necessary for us to offer 
proof that the executors have not been able to hear 
of her and that it is in fact a lapsed legacy we. shall 
want your answer & remain respectfully etc
