PREFACE 

There are a few remarks, some of which will be of interest 
to almost every reader, that the editor desires to make regard- 
ing the scope and make-up of this genealogy. The genealogy 
proper consists of a record of the descendants of Thomas Tal- 
madge or Talmage, who is said to have come to America in the 
fleet with Governor Winthrop and three of whose sons — Wil- 
liam, Thomas and Robert executed legal papers in Boston in 
1640. In the appendix are the genealogies of a number of 
families living in the United States, some of which are probably 
descendants of the same ancestor common to all mentioned in 
the main book ; the others, who trace their ancestries to neigh- 
boring parts of England may be descended from a collateral 
relative of our common ancestor above referred to. 

In the first part of the book is given the general result of 
numerous researches by interested members of the family con- 
cerning the family in England. It is shown that families bear- 
ing our name holding positions of influence have resided in 
Suffolk County from the earliest Saxon times to the present 
day; that as early as 1500 a. d. the name appears in Hamp- 
shire records and that these people are supposed to be a branch 
of the Suff'olk family; and that prosperous members of the 
Hampshire family lived almost from their first appearance in 
the County at Newton Stacey, where John Talmadge, the 
brother of our ancestor Thomas, lived, previous to his death in 
1640. Thus our early English ancestry is clearly indicated 
though no attempt is made to give the unbroken line of descent 
even back through the Hampshire to the Suffolk family as 
there are links where the evidence is doubtful. 

However, it will be of interest to most members of the family 
to know that it is merely a question of expense of successful 
research to discover the correct line, for a professional genealo- 
gist writes that he already possesses the exact line of ancestry 
of our ancestor Thomas, based on satisfactory evidence such as 
wills, public records, etc., and he is willing to sell a copy of the 



X Peeface 

same, including a history of the family in America, for three 
hundred and eighty dollars. Unfortunately he reserves the 
right to reprint, so that the same could not be included in this 
book. 

As regards the material for this book the " Sources of In- 
formation " indicate very clearly- that the early generations 
are based largely on the result of searches by the editor, while 
the rest is mostly the records of a limited number of persons 
who have taken a general interest in the subject. These rec- 
ords, and notably those of the late Jl,ewis Cass Tallmadge, 
Esq., are based on innumerable letters from people who write 
generally concerning their own family only. 

This book is, therefore, the result of the cooperation of many 
people and the editor wishes to express his thanks to all those 
who took an interest or assisted in the production of this book 
and especially to Mr. Robert Swartout Tahnage, of New York 
city; Mrs. John A. Vanderpoel, of New York city; Jlr. Henry 
Pearl Talmadge, of Netherwood, N. J. ; Mr. Thomas E. Tall- 
madge, of Chicago ; Mr. Charles T. Conover, of Seattle, Wash. ; 
and Mrs. Mary T. Root, of Providence, R. I. He also wishes 
to thank Mrs. Jolm L. Buel, of " East Meadows," Litchfield, 
Conn., for the use of the three plates pertaining to Col. Benj. 
Tallmadge, which are from her article on the ]Mary Floyd Tall- 
madge Chapter in Chapter Sketches of the Daughters of the 
American Revolution ; and Mrs. James Tallmadge Van Rens- 
selaer for the picture of General James Tallmadge. The illus- 
tration of Helmingham Hall is from Odd and Old Memories, 
by Lionell A. Tollemache; that of Ham House is from Ham 
House, Its History and Art Treasures, by ]Mrs. Roundell; and 
the map of Easthampton is from The Talmage Record, by S. 
C. N. Talmage and by William Pelletreau; and the map of 
New Haven is from a reprint of the original furnished by John 
E. Bassett & Co., of New Haven, Conn. 

The records of the late Lewis Cass Tallmadge call for special 
notice. They comprise about half this genealogy and corrobo- 
rate much more. Mr. Lewis Cass Tallmadge e^^dently took 
the most general interest in this subject of all the family, and 
showed the most persistent efforts in tracing widely scattered 
collateral lines. A picture of him is included in the genealogy. 
His records, which were obtained through the kindness of his 
son, Mr. Thomas E. Tallmadge, were written about thirty 



Peeface xi 

Tears ago in a fine hand, and as the paper is losing its surface 
from age, particularly in the folds, it was impossible even with 
a magnifying glass to be sure of a few of the spellings of proper 
names. 

The late Mr. S. C. M. Talmage, who wrote the Tainutge 
Record, deserves the especial thanks of aU who are descended 
in the male hne from Captain Thomas Talmage, one of the 
founders and first Recorder of Easthampton, Long Island, for 
he discovered the will of Nathaniel Talmage, which was filed 
but through some error not recorded at the office of the surro- 
gate of New York County. Nathaniel was the only son of 
Captain Thomas survived by male heirs and his will is the only 
conclusive proof known as to who were his sons. Previous to 
the discovery of this wiU the Hne of descent had frequently been 
published incorrectly in genealogical magazines, etc., all based 
on what seemed most probable with the evidence at hand. 



THE TALMADGE, TALLMADGE AND 
TALMAGE GENEALOGY 



The Talmadge, Tallmadge and 
Talmage Genealogy 

THE FAMILY IN ENGLAND 

The name of this family in the United States is at present 
spelled in three ways, " Talmadge," " Tallmadge," and " Tal- 
mage." The first is the spelling used by the earliest members 
of the famil}^ to whom any of the American family can trace 
without a break in the descent, i. c, John Talmadge of Newton 
Stacey, Hants, and Simon Talmadge of Wherwell, Hants, and 
is now used by various scattered branches of the American 
family. Generally speaking the spelling " Tallmadge " is used 
by descendants of Robert Talmage who settled at New Haven, 
Conn., in 1644, and the spelling " Talmage " is generally used 
by descendants of Thomas Talmage of Easthampton, L. I., 
the older brother of the Robert above referred to. The spell- 
ing " Talmage " is also used by the descendants of Roger Tal- 
mage, some of whose descendants emigrated from England to 
America within fifty years. The genealogy of this family is 
included in the appendix, and though doubtless of common 
origin, coming from a neighboring part of England, there is 
yet no definite connection known. 

There is one more family in the United States using the 
spelling " Talmage." They are the descendants of Thomas 
Tammadge of Portsmouth, England, and their genealogy, 
which is interesting for the recent change of spelling, is in- 
cluded in the appendix. 

I do not know of any signatures spelled in any but one of 
the three above ways in the United States, but in many cases 
signatures are not easily available and church and town records 
are not to be relied on. A striking example is the records of 
the first church of New Haven, where the following spellings 
occurred during the ministry of Mr. Joseph Noyes : " Tal- 
3 



4< The Family in England 

maig," " Talmag," " Talmadge," " Talmig," " Talmage," and 
" Thammage." Other unusual spellings that occur in Ameri- 
can records are " Talmidge," " Tallmage," and " Toelmag." 

In England the name has undergone a great variety of 
changes and the best known branch of the family, the one that 
now spells the name Tollemache, and inherited the earldom of 
Dysart, is a striking illustration, as is shown in the preface of 
" Ham House, Its History and Art Treasures," by Mrs. Charles 
Roundell. This lady is a granddaughter of the late Admiral 
Halliday and Lady Jane Tollemache, sister of the fifth earl 
of Dysart. 

This preface reads : " The spelling of the family surname 
has undergone several changes; at one time it was spelt Tale- 
masche, later it became Tallmash, then Talmash, and finally 
the name settled into Tollemache. In the United States the 
name exists as Talmage." As will appear later there is evi- 
dence to believe these Tollemaches are descended from people 
who used the American spelling of Talmage. 

The name is of Saxon origin and has been widely published 
as coming from the Saxon word Tollmack, meaning the ringing 
of the bell, but the late Mr. J. M. B. Dwight, of New Haven, 
Conn., who was connected by marriage with the Tallmadgc 
family of New Haven, made a careful search extending over 
a long period, of the early ancestry of our family, and he wrote 
that the English Tollemaches told him that the name was that 
of the Saxon Viking, Toadmag, meaning Mankiller. This 
spelling is said to occur in Doomesday Book, though other 
reports say the spelling there is Toelmag and that King 
Stephen of England was descended from this Toelmag of 
Doomesday Book. However this may be, King Stephen was a 
son of the famous Count of Blois and a son-in-law of William 
the Conqueror, and if he is reckoned a member of this family 
his distinguished sister the Queen of France, and many other 
notable persons might doubtless be included. 

As King Stephen was a Norman it is interesting to note that 
there is at present a family of very ancient lineage settled in 
France by the name of Tollemache, and it is of course possible 
that some of Stephen's Saxon cousins may have been induced 
to try their fortune in Normandy, where they would have the 
advantage of great and friendly power, and that the French 
tongue transformed their harsh Saxon surname just as its in-

fluence through the Norman conquest softened the name in 
England. 

Suifolk County, England, seems to be the birthplace of the 
family, for long before we find records of the family in Hamp- 
shire or other places where they located, Suffolk County seems 
to have possessed Talmadges, Talmages, Talmachs, etc., who 
were people of position. Burke's Peerage in speaking of the 
ancestry of the Earls of Dysart, says : " The Tollemaches have 
flourished with the greatest honour in the County of Suffolk 
since the arrival of the Saxons in England, a period of more 
than thirteen centuries." Tollemache, Lord of 'Bentley in Suf- 
folk County, and Stoke-Tollemache in Oxfordshire, lived in the 
sixth century. There is a much and variously quoted inscrip- 
tion on the old manor house at Bentley to the effect that " when 
the Normans into England came, Bentley was my home and 
Talmach was my name." 

Hugh de Tollemache subscribed the charter sans date (about 
the time of King Stephen), made by John de St. John to Eve, 
the first Abbess of Godstow in Oxfordshire. This Hugh in 
his old age assumed the cowl at Gloucester and bestowed upon 
that monastery a moiety of the town of Hampton, which his 
son, Peter, confirmed in the time of the Abbott Hamblin. 

A descendant of Peter was Sir Hugh de Tollemache, who 
held of the crown in the twenty-fifth year of Edward I. the 
manor of Bentley and a fourth part of the village of Aketon 
by knight's service. 

In the twenty-ninth year of Edward I. William and John 
Tollemache were among those summoned to attend the King 
at Berwick-upon-Tweed before his expedition into Scotland. 
This John took the black' cross and his arms are now remaining 
at the minister of York. 

The foregoing is an indication of the early prominence of 
the family in Suffolk, though little faith can be put in the 
spelling, as the names are copied from Burke's Peerage, where 
all the names are made to conform in spelling to that used by 
the more recent Earls of Dysart. Mr. Dwight wrote that 
Stoke-Talmage in Oxfordshire belonged to the Talmage or 
Tollemache family of Bentley, and a reference to the General 
Search of the College of Heraldy included in the appendix will 
show the variety of spellings used by members of the Bentley 
Talmages or Tollemaches. 



6 The Family in England 

Unfortunately the slowness with which infonnation is ob- 
tainable from the College of Heraldy prevents me from includ- 
ing reference 51 of the "General Search, etc." (see Appendix). 
This record takes the Talmach family of Bentley, Suffolk, from 
1620 backward for fourteen generations or to about 1200 — 
a remarkably early date from which to be able to trace a line 
of ancestry without a break, especially as they seem to have 
been people of wealth and position with their permanent resi- 
dence at Bentley all these centuries. 

"The History of Suffolk County Tliingoe Hundred," by 
John Gage, Esq., F. R. S., London, 1838, has some ref- 
erences to the family that are interesting as showing the spell- 
ings used at a very early date and the position of the family 
in that locality. Thus: 

Simon Abbot, of St. Edmunds, who governed the monastery 
from 1237 to 1279, had the wardship of the heir of Sir Robert 
de Halsted; after whose decease the fee became the property 
of Sir William Talmach and Cecily his wife, probably the heir 
of the Halsted family. 

Cecily, widow of Sir William Talmach, died at Hawsted in 
the ninth year of Edward I. (1281), leaving William, her son, 
and Gilbert de Melton, her chaplain, executors of her will ; and 
from account rendered by Gilbert, we have the following 
funeral and other charges: 



Item : For a mass for the soul of the lady and for ringing 
for her soul in Hawsted, iij''. 

Item: For ringing for the soul of the lady in St. Edmunds, 

Item : For 1 pair of shoes for the clerk assisting Gilbert the 
chaplaip, celebrating for the soul of the lady, ij**.

ing, and j*^ for each meal; and the executor debits himself with 
sums of money paid by William Talmach and John Talmach 
on account of stock and effects purchased by them. 

Sir Wilham Talmach, the son, in the fourteenth year of Ed- 
ward I. (1286), held here a messuage and two hundred and 
four score acres of land. He died prior to the seventh j'ear of 
Edward II. (1314), when a fine was levied between Cecily, his 
widow, and Thomas, the Parson of Somerton, and Roger, Par- 
son of Hawsted, of two messuages and six carucates of land in 
Hawsted, Brockley, etc. — " to Cecily, intail, remainder to John, 
son of Sir William Talmach, intail; remainder successively to 
his brothers, William, Edmund and Thomas Talmach, intail; 
remainder to her right heirs." 

Among the principal tenants of Hawsted Manor who held 
of the Abbot of St. Edmund'sbury in 1286 was Sir William 
Talmach. 

" It appears, however, he had disposed of half the fee to 
William Talmadge, prior to the twenty-eigth year of Edward 
I. (1300), whence came the name of Talmadge's Manor in 
Brockley." 

" Subsequently to the thirteenth year of Henry VHI. 
(1522), Sir William Drury of Hawsted, became the purchaser 
of the Manor of Brockley ; and in him was also vested the 
Manor of Talmages, with Wifolds in Brockley. As to the 
manor of Talmages we have seen that it constituted the half 
of the fee of Henry de Brockley, which took the name of Sir 
William Talmach after the annexation of it by him to his 
family possessions in Hawsted. 

In the twentieth year of Edward III. (1347), it was vested, 
probably in trust for the family of Talmach. 

John Talmach, son and heir of Sir William, after the an- 
nexation by him, in the ninth year of Richard H. (1386), re- 
leased to WilHam Clopton all his rights in his father's lands 
at Brockley. 

"In the twenty-sixth year of Henry VI. (1448), sold the 
version expectant, and in the third year of Edward IV. (1464), 
his feoffee William Coleman, chaplain, conveyed the Manor of 
Bokenhams, otherwise Talmadges, to Roger Drury, Esq." 

On page 427 Mr. Gage gives the " Pedigree of Talmach of 
Hawsted,", showing how the Manor of Talmadges or Talmages 



The Family in England 9 

went out of the Talmach family, through the marriage of a 
daughter who had inherited it. 

I. Willielmus Tahnach de Hawsted, miles temp Heni-y III., 
married Cecelia, filia et haeres Roberti de Halsted, militis, filia 
Ricardi de Halsted; ob. 9 Edw. I. (1281). 

II. They had Willielmus Talmach de Hawsted, miles, fileus 
& haeres, 14 Edw. I. (1286), who married Cecelia, vidua 7 
Edw. II. (1314). 

III. They had Johannes Talmach de Hawsted, fileus & 
haeres; vivens 6 Rich. II. (1383) ; Willielmus Talmach, miles; 
Edmund Talmach, Thomas Talmach. 

IV. Willielmus Talmach mai-ried and had a daughter, 
Alicia Talmach de Hawsted, filia & haeres, 16 Rich. II. (1393). 
She married Willielmus Bokenhan de Hawsted, vivens 6 Henry 
IV. (1405), and they had, 

V. John Bokenham, Jr., who married Alicia. John Boken- 
ham, 5 Henry VI. (1427). 

Following shortly after the above pedigree in point of time 
come the charts and coat-of-arms in the Harleian MSS. 

Robert Harley, Earl of Oxford and Mortimer, who died 1724, 
made a collection of books and MSS. containing a great amount 
of genealogical material and this collection is preserved in the 
British Museum. The five charts referred to here are ,Harl. 
MS., 1560, p. 48; Harl. MS., 1177, p. 37; Harl. MS., 155, p. 
7 ; Harl. MS., 1449, p. 43 ; and Harl. MS., 1103, p. 41. They 
all have the same coat-of-arms with quarterings and refer to 
the same family, the chief difference being that some give one 
or two more generations and more detailed information than 
others. While the spelling of the surname is generally Tal- 
mache, in the first it is Talmage throughout, also this one 
gives the greatest number of generations and is the evidence 
referred to, that the ancestors of the present Tollemaches, the 
Earl of Dysart, etc., spelled their name Talmage, for they 
claim this pedigree as their own. The coat-of-arms is repro- 
duced here from a pen and ink drawing, and the Talmage chart 
with whatever additional information occurs in the others, is 
as follows : 

I. Lyonell Talmage of Benley in SufF. King H. 3 as ap- 
peareth by evidence in the hands of Sir Lionell, married dau. 
and Co-heir of John Curson of Brigewell in Suff. They had

and heire of Helmingam. They had 

III. John Talmage of Hehningham, in SufF., who mar- 
ried dau. and heire of Roger Louth of Sawtry or Snotry in

Lyonell Talmage of Helmingham, first son and heir, 
also Hugh, Robert, Oliver, and Wilham, and Katharine, Joane, 
Ann, and Jone. 

IV. Lionell Talmage of Helmingham married Edith, dau. & 
heire of Joyce of Helmingham, or John Helmygam. They

Elizabeth. 

Hugh Talmage IV. of St. Leonard's Hall in Suff. married 
Marg. dau. of Allen, Baron of the Exchequer. They had 
Richard and Francis, who died without issue, and Ann, who 
married Humfre Brown. Ann and Humfre had Peregrene and 
John Browne and John Browne had Peregrene Browne. 

Katharine IV. married Trewtayle of Com. Lincon. 

Joan IV. married Edmund Bokinge of Boking Ashe, in SufF. 
Gent. 

Anne IV. married Sir Thomas Pargiter, Maior of London. 

Jone IV. a noune at St. Hellen's in London. 

V. Lyonell Talmage of Helmingham, married -Dorothe, d. of 
Sir Rich. Wentworth of Nettlested in Com. SufF. Kt., and they 
had 

Humfre and Thomas, who died without issue, Lyonell, 
third son and heir, and Edith, Mary and Cecile. 

Ann V. married Robert Knevett or Keevett of Bucknam in 
NorfF. Gent. 

Elizabeth V. married first, Edmond Parye, and second, John 
Crackenell. 

VI. Lyonell Talmage of Helmingham, married Susan, dau. 
of Sir Ambrose Jermyn of Rushbrook, in SufF. Kt., and they 
had 

Lyonell, son and heir. 

Edith VI. married Edward Clarke of Hadley. 
Mary or Margery VI. married John Jermyn of Debden or 
Rushbrook, in SufF. 

VII. Lionell Talmage of Helmingham, in SufF. Kt., and

Baronet, married Katharine, dau. of Gregory or Geffery, Lord 
Cromwell, and they , had 

VIII. Lionel Talmage of Helmingham, Kt., and Baronet, 
married Elizabeth, dau. of John, Lord Stanhope of Harring- 
ton. For their descendants see any English peerage, under 
" Dysart." 

Also Edward Talmage, Robert Talmage, Susan Talmage 
married Henry Doyler of Srottisham, Mary Talmage mar- 
ried Roger Castle of Helmingham, Katherine Talmage mar- 
ried William Plater of Fordley, and Anne Talmage married 
Robt. Goswold of Otley in SufF. 

To return to the Talmach family of Hawsted, from the 
quotations included there it seems as though Mr. Gage could 
have made a more complete pedigree and also that Johanness 
Talmach of the third generation was not the one " viveus 6 
Rich. II.," but more probably the grandfather or an uncle. 
It should have been noted that Talmadge Manor was in 
Southwood, Suffolk County, and is mentioned again by Mr. 
Gage as being sold in 1538 by the Duke of Suffolk to Lord 
Thos. Audley, Lord Chancellor of England. 

The Talmage, Talmach, etc., coat-of-arms, as recorded in 
the College of Heraldy is : Arg: a fret sable ; with quarterings ; 
and is shown in figure ,2 without quartering and in figure 1 
with the quarterings and crest as copied from the Harleian 
MSS. In figure 1 the quartering to the right of the Talmage 
arms represents the Curson arms and is : Ermine a bar checquy 
argent and sable; and the quartering furthest to the right in 
the lower line is: Gules a fesse ermine between three round 
buckles or, — this represents the arms of Soterley or Sotelly. 
Mr. Geo. B. Howell identified the above quarterings in Berry's 
work on heraldry, but was unable to identify the others, though 
notes there was at that time (1875), no complete work on this 
subject. 

All the Talmages whose arms are recorded in the College of 
Heraldy bore the arms as shown in Figure 2, and all came 
from Suffolk County, mostly from Bentley, Helmingham and 
Fakenham. (See " Result of General Search, etc." in ap- 
pendix.) 

The American Talmadges, Tallmadges and Talmages be- 
lieve they are descended from the Suffolk family, and the Tolle- 
maches have accepted this belief as shown in the quotation from 



12 The Family in England 

the preface of " Ham House, Its History and Art Treasures." 
However, beyond an inherited tradition that dates back to the 
time of the Revolution, there seems to be no proof and we 
do know that the early settlers of our name in Colonial Massa- 
chussetts had relatives in Hampshire. 

The Talmach or Talmadge family appear in Hampshire 
shortly after 1500 a. d. according to present information, and 
about a century later we find them in Wilts and Berks. With 
my present information the chart of this family, as I assume 
it, is so doubtful in spots that I will simply indicate the 
probable generations and add in the appendix extracts from 
the wills I possess, for the benefit of any who may wish to 
investigate the subject further. 

First Generation. In subsidy Rolls of Hampshire, 1523, are 
Robert, John, William and Nicholas, brothers. , Agnes, see 
her will dated 1537; Robert of Barton Stacie, see will dated 
1538, had William, Margery and Ann ; John, will probated in 
Bishop's Court, 1546, of Barton Stacey. Surname Talmach 
or Talmage. 

Second Generation. In subsidy Rolls of Hampshire, William 
Talmach, 1548, will 1555, had William, John, Isabel and 
Edith, and . wife Joan ; Edward of Apleshaw, will in Bishop's 
Court, 1545 ; another William, Robert and Hugh. Talmage 
or Talmach spelling of surname. 

Third Generation. John of Newton Stacey, see will 1558, 
had brother William, who may be William of Newton Stacey, 
see his will dated 1581 ; he had John and Edmund, see their 
wills about 1595 and 1596. Possibly the same William as in 
subsidy rolls in 1570. Others probably of this generation 
were, William, John, and Thomas, the last of Appleshaw, see 
his will dated 1578. Surname spelled Talmach or Talmage. 

Fourth Generation. In subsidy rolls of 1596, are William, 
Sr., and Jr. Others porbably of this generation are Robert of 
Broughton, see will 1587 ; Richard of Sombome, see will 1587 ; 
also will of John, 1619, probably his son, and will of William, 
1618, also possibly his son. These three, John of Middleton, 
will, 1605 ; Robert of Faccomb, will, 1616, and Peter of Upton, 
will,, 1629, may be sons of Thomas of last generation. Spell- 
ing of surname Talmage, Talmadge, Talmaige, Tallmage and 
Talmydge. 

Fifth Generation. Subsidy rolls, 1620, Thomas and John 



The Family in England 13 

Talmadge; 1627, Thomas Talmadge or Talmage; others are 
Robert of Fifield, see will 1638, and William of Faccomb, see 
will, 1642; the two latter supposed to be sons of William, 
whose will is dated 1618. The Thomas of this generation is 
supposed to be the progenitor of the large American family 
who came to Massachusetts about 1630 with his three sons, 
William, Thomas and Robert, and died at Easthampton, Long 
Island, 165'3-4<. The John Talmadge of this generation is 
doubtless his brother, who died at Newton Stacey, 1640. 

Thomas brought his coat-of-arms on parchment with him to 
the Colonies, and it was still at Easthampton in 1906 — more 
than two hundred and fifty years after his death at that place 
— and in the possession of his descendant, Jonathan Gould. As 
the families that have scattered to the different parts of the 
country have mostly lost knowledge of this old parchment and 
accepted as theirs, the arms of some member of the Suffolk 
Talmage or Tollmache family, and as this old parclunent has 
no similarity to the arms of the Suffolk Talmages and is not 
recorded in the College of Heraldry, I will tell here why I believe 
it is genuine and therefore the arms to which the descendants 
of Thomas the progenitor have the best title. 

Thomas' last known residence was Easthampton and ac- 
cording to the town records he died 1653-4. Thos., Jr., seems 
to have inherited his home from the fact that his will refers 
to two " home lots " and as oldest son present it is presumable 
that he inherited the coat-of-arms. 

The will of Thomas, Jr., left his household goods to his 
two sons, Shubaell and Onesimus. The first died a bachelor 
and the other was survived by daughters only. Phebe, the 
wife of Severus Gold or Gould, was the only one married, and 
apparently inherited the whole estate. This explains how the 
old parchment came into the Gould family and under Phebe 
Talmage 38, in the genealogy, will be found the line of descent 
of Jonathan Gould from his ancestor, Phebe Talmage Gould. 

The design by its simplicity indicates it is of early origin, 
when Heraldry was at its best and the use of choughs — a bird 
now nearly extinct that was found with few exceptions only in 
Cornwall — indicates that the original bearer of these arms came 
from that part of England. The Encyclopjedia Britannica, 
under Heraldry, mentions the chough as in repute in Cornish 
heraldry. 



14 The Family in England 

While it would have been a satisfaction to find this coat-of- 
arms in the College ot Heraldry yet the College of Heraldry 
was not inaugurated until the fifteenth century, and then while 
in law it controlled heraldry in practise it has never controlled 
it entirely and so many people of power and influence simply 
assumed arms without the formahty of having them granted 
that at one time in an effort to regain its prestige, the Col- 
lege of Heraldry offered as a compromise to recognize as gen- 
uine anybody's arms whose ancestors had used the arms for 
two hundred years. 

One of the best known rules of heraldry is that color must 
not be placed on color, yet our arms seem to have a blue 
chevron on a red field and as this irregularity is not uncommon 
in early heraldry it seems to me a strong evidence of the gen- 
uineness of the old parchment. If it were the product of the 
last two hundred years anyone knowing that such a rare bird 
as a chough was in good repute in heraldry would certainly 
know that color must not be placed on color, and in keeping 
with the existing fashion would have designed an elaborate 
coat-of-arms. 

As regards quarterings in very early times when heraldry 
was in use to distinguish knights on the battle field, there were 
no quarterings, and in latter times only the arms of heiresses 
are used in quarterings, i. e., heiresses under the English law, 
as the eldest daughter of the house, there being no sons — not 
heiresses under the loose meaning of any daughter of wealthy 
parents. 

In closing I will quote from a letter dated Albany, N. Y., 
July 31, 1875, to Mr. L. C. Tallmadge from Geo. B. Howell 
on this subject: " But I think there is no doubt whatever but 
the Talmage who colonized here in 1640 or thereabouts bore 
the arms on that old parchment — that is, I believe he did, and 
rightfully. He may be a collateral branch of the Helming- 
hams, who were the ' head ' of the family in England and so 
changed the arms as it was customary at that time." 

The coat-of-arms of the Earl of Dysart as given in Burke's 
Peerage is. Arms: quarterly 1st and 4th arg., a fret sa., for 
ToUemache; 2nd and 3rd Az; an imperial crown or, between 
three mullets, arg., within a double tressure, flory-counter-flory, 
of the second, for Murray. 



The Family in England 15 

Crest; a horse's head, erased, arg., with wings expanded, or, 
pelletee. 

Supporters ; two antelopes, ppr., attired and unguled, or. 

Motto ; Confido, Conquiesco. 

As the family this book traces left England before there was 
an Earldom of Dysart and are not descended from William 
Murray 1st earl, we do not claim the Murray quarterings, but 
the crest and ToUemache quarterings are those of the Suffolk 
Talmages or Talmaches and are the same as sketched in Figure 
No. I. 

Thus all the American families are probably descended from 
the original bearer of the arms as given in Figure No. 2, and 
may be entitled to all or some of the quarterings included in 
Figure No. 1, but all (except those included in the appendix) 
have a much clearer title to the arms of their ancestor Thomas, 
to whom they trace without a doubt.

1 THOMAS TAL:MADGE. He was an Englishman 
and brother of John Talmadge of Newton Stacey, Hants, as 
described by several of his children in the letter of attorney 
below. Compare this with Will of John Talmadge above. 

Thomas Talmadge came to America, 1631, in the ship 
Plough, which carried ten passengers. Another report says 
he came in the fleet with Governor Winthrop in 1630, see 
Savage, iv or ix, 252. He landed at Charlestown, moved to 
Boston and then Lynne. May 14, 1634, the " Genall Court " 
made " Thomas Talmage " a freeman. In 1637 a committee 
composed of Daniel Howe, Richard Walker and Henry Col- 
lins, was appointed to lay out farms, and in 1638 they allotted 
one of two hundred acres to " Thomas Talmage " and one of 
twenty acres for " Thomas Talmage his son." On September 
17 



18 Generation One 

3, 1640, a letter of attorney by the emigrants seems to have' 
been executed at Boston. 

Mr. S. C. N. Talmage in his Talmage Genealogy, 1901, 
writes that Thomas Lechford was an English lawyer who 
came to Boston, 1638, and returned to England, 1641. He 
was the first practising lawyer in Massachusetts and kept a 
notebook of legal memoranda which has been published and 
contains these entries, page 294, old 167 : 

" WilHam Talmage, of Boston, in New England, Thomas 
Talmage, Robert Talmage and Richard Walker, husband of 
Jane Talmage, deceased, sonnes and daughter of Thomas Tal- 
mage, brother of John Talmage of Newton Stacey, in the 
county of Southampton, deceased, make a letter of attorney 
to Richard Conying and William Dowlying, overseers of the 
will of the said John Talmage, deceased, to receive of the 
executor and administrator of the last will and testament 
of Symon Talmage, our brother, and of John Talmage afore- 
said, the summes of money due unto us by the will of the said 
John Talmage (and a certificate under the public seal. (L. S.). 

Page 311 new, old 175: A letter of Attorney by William 
Talmage, Thomas Talmage and Robert Talmage aforesaid, 
and Richard Walker, to Mr. Ralph King to receive the money 
of the said overseer, dated Sept. '3, 1640. (A certificate made 
under the public seal. (L. S.). 

From vol. 31 of the New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Record, I took the following notes: 

A letter of attorney was made by William, Thomas, and 
Robert Talmage and Richard Walker, husband of Jane Tal- 
mage, deceased, all of Boston in New England, and sons and 
daughter of Thomas Talmage (brother of John Talmage of 
Newton Stacey, South*, husbandman (deceased), to Mr. Ralph 
Kinge to receive certain sums of money from Richard Cari-ying 
and William Dowlying overseers of the Will of John Talmage, 
deceased, and from the executor of the will of Symon Talmage 
(their brother), due to them. This letter dated Sept. 3, 1640. 
Ralph King was a draper of Watford, England. 

We next hear of Thomas, Sr., at Southampton, L mg Island. 
This town was founded 1640, and most of the people came from 
Lynn, Mass. Thomas arrived shortly after the town was set- 
tled and in 1642 Thomas Talmage, Sr., was granted a home 
lot. 




Arms of Thomas Talmadge 

These Arms, on an Old Parchment in Easthampton, Have Been

Generation One 19 

By order of the court on March 7, 164<4!, the town was di- 
vided into four wards and Thomas, Sr., hved in the first, while 
Thomas, Jr., and Robert hved in the second ward. Among the 
freemen March 8, 1649, is Thomas Talmage, and on May 10, 

1649, he was number 13 in the list of Townsmen. He is not 
in the list of inhabitants 1657, and he must have left about 

1650, going to Easthampton, of which his son, Thomas, Jr., 
was one of the founders in 1649. On May 24, 1651, Thomas 
Talmage, Sr., was fined for absence from Town Meeting at 
Easthampton. He probably died 1653, for on December 9, 
1653, the town records show it was " ordered that the share 
of whale in controversy between Widowe Talmage shall be 
divided even as the lott is," and in February, 1654, Thomas 
Talmage (no Sr. or Jr. attached to name), was given five 
acres of land. Also it is recorded "... possessor of the 
land formerly granted to Thomas Talmage, senior, deceased," 
and on same page Thomas Talmage (no Sr. or Jr. attached 
to his name) , is mentioned at living. There is no date on this 
page, but the following contains records dated May 24, 1655. 

His children, as far as known, were: 

2 Simon. 

3 William. 

4 Christian. 

5 Jane. 

6 Thomas. 

7 Robert. 

8 Davis, bom 1630.

GENERATION TWO 

2 SIMON TALMADGE. He lived and died in England. 
He was the principal heir of his uncle John Talmadge of 
Newton Stacey, Hants, who made his will 1638, and died before 
September, 1640. " Simon " as he spelled his name, made his 
will 1639, leaving most of his property to his wife and her 
family. He apparently had no children, and died 1640. His 
wife was Katharine Hay, daughter of Bartholomew Hay. 

Simon Talmadge lived at Wherwell and signed his name in 
his will as it is here spelled. 

Extract from will of Simon Talmadge, Decimo Septimo, 
March, 1639. 

Symon Talmadge, Wherwell, j^eoman, hurried at Wherwell. 
Legatees Katharine Talmadge (wife), Bartholomew Hay, his 
father-in-law, mother-in-law, and to sister-in-law Elizabeth 
Hay, a bible which is at Salisbury. Mr. Binner (minister), 
and godchild John Canning. Katherine his wife, executrix. 

Witnesses, Casper Binner (curate, temp of Whenvell, Bul- 
lington and Tuff ton), Bartholomew Hay and John Canning. 

Proved, March 27, 1640. Signature " Simon Talmadge." 

Sources of Information, 1, 2, 4. 

3 WILLIA]\I TAL:MIDGE, TALIMADGE or TAL- 
MAGE. He is supposed to have come from England in the 
fleet with Governor Winthrop in 1630, or in 1631 with his 
father Thomas, in the ship Plough, and landed at Charles- 
town. May 14, 1634, the " Genall Court " at Lynn, made 
" William Talmidge " a freeman. 

" 12th of the 6th August, 1636, at a meeting of the richer 
inhabitants subscriptions for a free school-master was taken." 
Governor Vane heads the list and William Talmadge was one 
of the 44 subscribers. He was a member of Rev. Elliot's 
church at Roxbury, who speaks highly of his wife in his church 
records. Elizabeth, wife of W^illiam Talmage, died December 
20, 1660, at Lynn. He then man-ied Elizabeth, daughter of 
John and Elizabeth Peirce, who was bom at Boston, July 16, 
1643. They had: 

21 



22 Generation Two 

9 Elizabeth, bom Sept. 22, 1666. 

10 Mary, born Jan. 13, 1668. 

These children seem to have died without issue, as Ann Flack, 
neice of William, eventually became his sole heir. 

William Talmage's second wife died about 1669, for after 
that her name does not appear in the legal documents signed 
by her husband. June 2, 1670, William Talmage made an 
extraordinary agreement in which his father-in-law agreed to 
support him for life and his two daughters for sixteen years or 
until they married, and in return he deeded to his father-in- 
law for sixteen years his house, garden, orchard, cattle, certain 
of his lands, etc. William Talmage probably died before 
Jan. 9, 1672, when two witnesses testified that he had signed 
the above agreement. His name appears many times in the 
records from 1634 to 1672, after which he is referred to as 
deceased and his name is spelled at different times in the three 
ways given above. In deeds he described himself as a house 
carpenter and he seems to have been very prosperous. 

Sources of Information: 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 18, 19, 20. 

4i CHRISTIAN TALMADGE or TALMAGE. She was 

bom in England and married there, for in the will of John 
Talmadge of Newton Stacey, she is mentioned as Christian 
Wormlum. She probably came to America after 1640, for she 
was not one of the heirs of John Talmadge, who executed a 
joint letter of attorney at Boston, Sept. 3, 1640, in order to 
have their share of the inheritance sent them. However, she 
came to Boston, Mass., and married a man named Belcher — 
possibly Edward Belcher, who lived next her brother William 
at Boston. She had a daughter. 

11 Ann, who was the sole heir of her uncle William Talmage, 

and in 1702 was the widow of Samuel Flack. 

July 29, 1704, it was testified by several people that Chris- 
tian Belcher and William Talmage, both of Boston, and at 
that time deceased, were brother and sister; she was supposed 
to be his only sister and Ann Flack, widow of Samuel, was her 
daughter and the only surviving next of kin. 

Source of Information: 8, 20, 2. 

5 JANE TALMADGE or TALIMAGE. She was bom 
in England and married Richard Walker about 1638, and died 
before Sept. 3, 1640. She is mentioned in the will of John 



Generation Two 23 

Talmadge of Newton Stacey, as Jane Talmadge, so if she 
married before he drew his will in 18'38, the news presumably 
had not reached him in England. The letter of attorney 
signed by her brothers and husband in 1640, states she was 
deceased. 

There were two Richard Walkers, presumably father and 
son. The elder wag made freeman at Lynn in 1634; the 
younger and more probable husband of Jane Talmadge, was 
bom 1611, came to America 1635 and went to Reading, where 
he became a representative. 

Source of Information: 1, 2, 3. 

6 CAPTAIN THOMAS TALMAGE. He was born in 
England and came to America with his father when a boy. 

In 1637 a town meeting at Lynn appointed a committee 
to lay out farms ; they were Daniel Howe, Richard Walker and 
Henry Collins. In 1638 they laid out a farm of twenty acres 
for Thomas Talmage, son of Thomas Talmage. 

Thomas, Jr., went to Southampton shortly after that town 
was founded in 1640, and was granted land there in 1642. 

On March 7, 1644, by order of the court Southampton was 
divided into four wards. In the first ward lived Thomas, Sr., 
and in the second ward lived Thomas, Jr., and Robert Tal- 
mage. 

In 1649 Thomas, Jr., left Southampton with seven other 
men and founded the Town of Easthampton, where he lived 
the rest of his life. The new settlement seems to have pros- 
pered at once, for the next year there were thirty-six land 
holders. Thomas, Jr., was elected the first recorder or secre- 
tary, which position he held many years, alternating the 
exercise of the office with Benj. Price. In 1691 when he died 
he was the recorder. 

In the Chronicles of Easthampton, by David Gardiner, it 
reads: Thomas Tallmadge, Jun., was the first recorder or 
secretary. Judging from his handwriting and orthography he 
must have had a good education for that period, when in the 
Mother Country the teaching of grammar was held by agrar- 
ians of that day " a corrupting of the youth of the realm." 
Taking the same extent of learning as a criterion, he had a 
much better education than some who have held higher stations 
in our own country in this enlightened age. 



24 Generation Two 

This little colony organized a force of fighting men to pro- 
tect themselves in case of emergency and Thomas Talmage 
the recorder was chosen leader, and in 1660, Feb. 5th, the Court 
of Election confirmed his election as Lieutenant. Later his 
position was raised to that of Captain. 

He acted for the town on most occasions and the New 
Netherlands Register notes that Thomas Talmage in 1673 was 
Town Clerk. In 1674 Thomas Talmage and others, in the 
name of the town of Easthampton petitioned the King to allow 
thfim to remain under the government of Connecticut, and in 
1682 a unanimous vote agreed that the Constable, the Over- 
seers, the clergyman and Thomas Talmage, should sign a pe- 
tition and transmit it to the Governor. In 1686 Governor 
Thomas Dongan granted a patent for the town of Easthamp- 
ton to Captain Thomas Tolmage and others. 

Judge) Hedges writes that the records show that at his 
death in 1691, Captain Thomas Talmage was the richest man 
in East Hampton. When he made his will, 1687, his wife Eliza- 
beth, was living and it is probably she to whom Rev. Nathaniel 
Hunting refers when he records the death of Mrs. Talmage, 
May 20, 1704. 

The children of Captain Thomas were: 

12 Nathaniel, born 164'3. 

13 John. 

14 Naomi. 

15 Mary. 

16 Hanna, probably married Edward Jones, Jr. See will 

of Onesimus, also remarks under Thomas Talmage, No. 
86. 

17 Sarah. 

18 Shubeall, born 1656-7. 

19 Onesimuss, bom 1662. 

Captain Thomas Talmage died between April and Septem- 
ber, 1691, for his will, dated 1687, was proved 1691, Sept. 
29, and on April 7, 1691, Thomas Talmage was re-elected 
Recorder. 

In the carhest tax list we have, 1675, Captain Thomas Tal- 
mag is one of the four richest men and in the next hst 1683 
he is tlie richest inhabitant. 

In 1663 Thos. Talmage was the first of the " Committee " 
of three, elected, who governed the towTi. In 1673 Lieut. 



Generation Two 25 

Thos. Talmage was one of the four magistrates elected that 
year. When Governor Dongan granted Easthampton a patent 
he appointed Captain Thomas Talmage one of the trustees 
of the freeholders until an election could be held the next 
year.

after my decease. All the rest of my lands and goods what- 
soever that is not afore mentioned, with all the privileges that 
do or of right belong to me wherever it is, my debts and 
legacies being first paid, I do give unto these my three sons, 
Nathaniel, Shubaell and Onesimus Talmage, and do make them 
executors of this my last Will and Testament. To all and 
every of the above written premises I have hereunto set my hand 
and seal this twenty-third of April, 1687.

7 ROBERT TALMAGE. He was born in England and 
came to America as a young man. In 1638 his uncle, John 
Talmadge, of Newton Stacey, Hants, England, drew his will 
leaving Robert a legacy. On September '3, 1640, at Boston, 
Robert, with his brothers and brother-in-law signed a letter of 
attorney to Ralph King, of Watford, to get the money for 
them from the Overseers. 

On March 7, 1644, Robert was at Southampton, Long 
Island, living in the second ward where Thomas, Jr., also 
lived; Thomas, Sr., living in the first ward. 

Robert next appears at New Haven, where Robert Tall- 
madge took the freeman's oath, July 1, 1644. In 1649 he 
was a married man. It is supposed that he married in 1648, 
though no record of this has yet been found. His wife was 
Sarah Nash, who was born in England and was probably the 
third child of Thomas Nash and Margery Baker. She was 
living in 1687 when Major John Nash left her, " the widow 
Talmage," a legacy. See the Nash Family of New Haven, 
Conn. 

It is said that Robert Talmage was among the original pur- 
chasers of New Haven Colony in 1639, and that his brother 
or father Thomas, was also located there for a while at least. 
In 1662 the administrators filed in inventory of the estate of 
Robert Talmage. 

Robert and Sarah had these children: 

20 Abigail, born May 3, 1649, at New Haven.

8 DAVIS TALMAGE. The town records of East- 
hampton state, " Davis and Thomas Tahnage shall have the 
land granted unto them," May 24, 1655. David or Davis, 
who died May, 1708, aged 78, and was therefore born 1630, 
must have been the youngest brother of Thomas, Recorder of 
Easthampton. 

As the children of Thomas, his brother, are accounted in 
his will, and as Davis is the only known person who could have 
been their father, the following are recorded as his children: 

26 Enos, born 1660. 

27 Stephen, born 1661 ; died 1742, aged 81 at Bridgehamp- 

ton. 
Sources of Information, 11, 26. 



GENERATION THREE 

12 NATHANIEL TALMAGE. He was the oldest liv- 
ing son of Thomas, the first recorder of Easthampton, when 
that man made his will in 1687. He was born at Southamp- 
ton, Long Island, IG^S, removed when a boy with his father, 
who was one of the founders, to Easthampton, where he spent 
the rest of his life. In the early town records, the only records 
now extant, as the church records were lost by fire, Nathaniel 
T. Tallmage is a recorded witness 1668, September 27, Na- 
thaniel Talmage sold a house 1676, June 28, and owned land 
south of Ben Conkling at Wainscott about 1678. 

In 1687 Nathaniel was elected one of the two Constables — 
in those days officers of considerable importance. He was 
also a trustee of the town in 1689, 1692, 1701, 1703, and 
1705. 

About 1677 Nathaniel man-ied Rebecca , who was 

born 1658, and died April 15, 1743, aged eighty-four or five, 
according to the church record. He died August 3, 1716- 
The church record is 1715, but it must be an error as his will 
in the New York County Surrogate Office is dated July 24, 
1716. Their children as mentioned in his will, were: 

28 Thomas, born 1676-1677. 

29 John, bom 1678. 

30 EHzabeth Joan, bom about 1685 ; unmarried in 1716. 

31 Martha. 

32 Enos, bom 1690. 

33 Daniel, born 1693. 

34 Rebecca. 

35 Naomi, baptised May 4, 1701. 

Nathaniel inherited the home lot and house in Easthamp- 
ton ; his bachelor brother Shubeall received the second home 
lot and house, which their father Thomas presumably inherited 
from their grandfather.

15 MARY TALMAGE. Mentioned in her father's will 
1687, as the wife of Hand. This was probably Thomas Hand, 
son of John, the first of that name in the colonies, and one 
of the first eight settlers of Easthampton. 

Thomas Hand removed to Cape May, New Jersey, and their 
descendants are said to still hve in that region. 

Sources of Information, 21, 25. 

17 SARAH TALMAGE. Mentioned in her father's 
will 1687, as the wife of Bee, probably Thomas Bee, who he 
says used some of his land by his consent. 

Source of Information, 21. 

18 SHUEBALL TALMAGE. He was the second son 
of Thomas, Kving when this man drew his will in 1687. He 
was born about 1656, and died October 1, 1742, aged eighty- 
five or six according to the church record. He remained single, 
and lived at Easthampton all his hfe as far as is known. 
He was witness to the will of Thomas James, who was the 
first minister of Easthampton, officiating there about fifty 
years, and also Trustee of the town in 1704. 

Sources of Information, 138, 21, 30, 33. 

19 CAPTAIN ONESSIMUS TALMAGE. He was the 
third living son of Thomas Talmage, when he drew his will, 
1687, and at that time was unman-ied. He was bom 1662 
and died 1723, Februray 1st, at about sixty-one years of age. 
He married Rebecca Wheeler, who is probably the aged Widow 
Talmage who died January 4, 1751. He was probably cap- 
tain of the local militia, as he is repeatedly referred to in 
records of the time as " Captain," and he was trustee of the 
town in 1699, 1700, 1703, and 1706. Their children were: 

36 Sarah, baptised as adult, Feb. 17, 1716-7. 



34 Generation Three 

37 Mary, baptised as adult, Feb. 17, 1716-7; unmarried in 

1727. 

38 Phebe, baptised as adult, Feb. 17, 1716-7. 

39 Thomas, baptised as child, Feb. 17, 1716-7, and died 

aged about 18 Nov. 13, 1722. 

Thus Onesimus died leaving only daughters, and the Tal- 
mage coat-of-arms on the original parchment brought to 
America in 1631, which seems to have been in his possession, 
passed to his daughter Phebe. 

Sources of Infonnation, 21, 11, 30, 34, 138. His Will reads : 

In the name of God, Amen, the thii-ty first Day of January

daughter of James Bishop and Mary Lamberton, November

Abigail Bishop was the granddaughter of Captain George 
Lamberton of the famous phantom ship. James Bishop, her 
father, was a distinguished public man, holding many offices, 
as Magistrate, Commissioner on the Union of the New Haven 
and Connecticut Colonies, Deputy Governor of New Haven, 
1662-3, and of Connecticut, 1683-7, etc.

26 ENOS TALMAGE. He was born at Easthampton, 
1660, was a very tall man, according to IMajor Thomas Tal- 
mage, who visited Easthampton in 1752, and lived to a great 
age. Major Thomas also mentions that the wife of Enos, 
also very aged and exceeding short as her husband was tall, 
was alive at this time. Major Thomas says that Enos was 
his grandfather, and that he had the following children : 

53 Enos. ■^) 

54 A daughter. 

55 A daughter. t 

56 Thomas. ^ ■ 

57 John. ' 

58 Daniel, the youngest child,, bom, 1693; died 1725 at 

Elizabethtown, N. J. 

This Major Thomas married Elizabeth Wick, a grand- 
daughter of one of his aunts, the daughter of Enos. He also 
states his three uncles were alive in 1752 when he visited East- 
hampton. 

Enos Talmage, born 1660; died 1753, at Easthampton, and 
Mrs. Catherine, relict of Mr. Eanos Talmage, who died May 
12, 1752, aged sixty-six, may refer to this family. See No. 
S3. 

I have already credited Daniel, son of Nathaniel, of East- 
hampton, as born 1693, died 1725, at Elizabethtown, N. J., 
so if it was Daniel, son of this Enos, who died there his de- 
scendants trace through this line. 

Thomas, the son of the above IMajor Thomas Talmage, re- 
corded the above genealogical record apparently from memory 
thirtj^-nine years after his father's death, and seventy-seven 
years after his father's only known visit to his relatives at 
Easthampton, so that some confusion seems quite possible. 
From the known records, wills, etc., Enos does not appear to 
have had any children, and those here credited to him and 
described by Major Thomas, coincide exactly with what we 
know of the children of Nathaniel Talmage, the cousin of 
Enos. 

Sources of Information, 35, 36, 26. 



GENERATION FOUR 

28 THOMAS TALMAGE. He was the oldest son of 
Nathaniel, and was born about 1677, though possibly 1676. 
As tlie church records of this time were all destroyed by fire, 
the date of his marriage as well as birth is missing, yet other 
dates of events show that he was very probably bom in 1676 
or 1677, for his younger brother John seems to have been 
born 1678 and their mother Rebecca was bom 1658. As one 
of his daughters died aged about fifteen in 1713, according to 
the church record, he must have mamed about 1697, when 
twenty years old. 

The earliest reference to him is in his grandfather's will 
dated 1687. He inherited the original Talmage home at East- 
hampton and lived there where he died, 176J^, October 24. 

His children were: 

59 A daughter died aged about fifteen, March 31, 171'3. 

60 Mary, baptised April 13, 1707. 

61 Temperance, baptised March 19, 1710. 

62 Abigail, baptised March 23, 1712. 

63 Daughter born Aug. 26, 1715; died in infancy. 

64 Thomas, baptised Aug. 5, 1722. 

Thomas owned Covenant April 13, 1707. He seems to have 
been a very steady and highly respected member of the com- 
munity, for the Rev. Buell records the death of " Mr." Thomas 
Talmage, the prefix " Mr." occun-ing in almost no other of 
his records. 

On the muster rolls of the Suffolk County regiment, soldiers 
from Easthampton, are the names of Thomas and his two 
brothers, John and Enos, about 1715. 

In 1709 Thomas Talmage was elected Constable of East- 
hampton, which office had also been held by his father, and he 
was tmstee of the town in 1730, 1732, 1742 and 1745. 

Sources of Information, 138, 21, 31, 30, 25, 39. 

29 JOHN TALMAGE. He was bom at Easthampton, 
Long Island, New York State, 1678. 

On December 25, 1702, John Talmage and Experience Mil- 

39 



40 Generation Four 

ler were married by Rev. Nathaniel Hunting, second minister 
of Easthampton, who notes that they were the twentieth couple 
he had married. Experience died August 30, 1723, and was 
born 1685, for Rev. Hunting notes she was thirty-eight years 
old. She was no doubt the daughter of Lieutenant Jeremy 
Miller of Easthampton, who was born 1655 and died January 
2, 1723. For further information of the Miller family, see 
Hedges, Easthampton, pages 305-311. 

John married again about 1725, and was survived many 
years by his widow Ann. He died November 2, 1764, " aged 
86," according to his tombstone, and his widow Ann died Feb- 
ruary 24, 1788, aged ninety-eight years. In 1716 John and 
his brother Thomas inherited the greater part of their father's 
estate ; John's share lying largely in the Parish of " Brighamp- 
ton." He resided at Wamscott about six miles west of East- 
hampton. 

John and Experience had twelve children: 

65 Ehzabeth, baptised Dec. 5, 1703. 

66 John, Jr., baptised Aug. 10, 1707. 

67 Experience, baptised Oct. 3, 1708. 

68 Jeremiah, baptised April 9, 1710.

Hunting, and again in 1764 Rev. Buell, the third minister of 
the town of Easthampton, restored John Talmage to com- 
munion. 

He was trustee of the town in 1732 and his name appears 
as a member of the SufFolk Regiment about 1715, among the 
soldiers from Easthampton. 

Except for the two daughters who died young and Joseph, 
who went to Branford, Conn., to live, all of John's children 
are mentioned in his will dated 1760, and he left most of his 
property to John, Jr. and Enos, the two oldest sons of his 
two wives.

Experience in 1702, was a graduate of Harvard College, class 
of 1693, and went to Easthampton, L. I., where he was the

the Suffolk County regiment about 1715. 

The widow Kate Talmage married Thomas Mulford, Sep- 
tember 7, 1737.

died the following October, and whose mother was Sarah 
Hand. 

Sources of Information, 23, 25, 30, 40, 119. 

67 EXPERIENCE TALMAGE. She was baptised at

70 JOSIAH TALMAGE. Baptised as an infant April 
19, 1713, by the Rev. Nathaniel Hunting, second minister of 
the church of Easthampton, Long Island, N. Y. On October 
14, 1735, the Rev. Hunting married Josiah and Phebe Dibble. 
They went to Branford, Conn., to live, where their marriage 
is also recorded, but they evidently returned home on visits 
for their first child, Josiah, born November 25, 1736, according 
to the Branford town records, was baptised ]\Iay 1, 1737, by 
the Rev. Nathaniel Hunting, of East Hampton. Thus the 



Generation Five 51 

Rev. Hunting officiated at the baptism of Josiah second; at 
the baptism and marriage of Josiah, his father; and at the 
marriage of John, his grandfather with Experience Miller, his 
grandmother. 

Josiah and Phebe had these children: 

154; Josiah, born at Branford, Conn., Nov. 25, 1735. 

155 Joseph, bom at Branford, Conn., April 4, 1739. 

156 Jonathan, bom at Branford, Conn., March 30, 1742. 

157 Phebe, bom at Branford, Conn., Aug. 4, 1744. 

158 Ichabod, born at Branford, Conn., Jan. 18, 1747. 
Phebe, the wife of Josiah, died January 28, 1747, and in 

July, 1748, Josiah married Hanna Williams at Branford. She 
died July 17, 1793. They were married by Jonathan Mer- 
rick and their children were: 

159 Jacob, born at Branford, Sept. 2, 1749. 

160 Hanna, bom at Branford, 1751. 

161 Lois, born at Branford, 1753. 

162 John, bom at Branford, March 3, 1755. 

163 Sally, bora at Branford, Aug. 4, 1758.

165 Nathaniel, bora July 24, 1763. 

166 Isaac, born Oct. 16, 1765. 

167 Daniel. 

Josiah's father, John, died in 1764, aged eighty-four years, 
and in his will which was dated 1760, he left Josiah a small 
sum of money. 

Josiah and his second wife settled at Wolcott Center about 
1759, at that time this was part of Waterbury, Conn. Josiah 
died October 22, 1792. 

Sources of Information, 30, 40, 41, 47, 122. 

71 JOSEPH TALMAGE. He was baptised at East- 
hampton, by Rev. Nathaniel Hunting, January 9, 1715, who 
also records his marriage to Hanna Harrington, June 22, 
1739. However, it seems probable that this event took place 
at Branford, Conn., where it is recorded among the town 
records stating that both were of Branford. Joseph's older 
brother Josiah, went to Branford to live about 1736, return- 
ing for visits to Easthampton and it is probable that Joseph 
did likewise, and that the minister who had been there so many 
years and had married Joseph's father and baptised Joseph 



52 Genekation Five 

also recorded his marriage. The Rev. Buell records the death 
of a son of John Talmadge at Wainscott, November, 1753, 
and this must be Joseph, for John left property to all his 
other sons when he made his will in 1760, also Joseph's second 
wife married September 16, 1755, Joseph Finch, of East 
Haven, who was born May 1, 1729. 

Joseph's wife, Hanna, died April 16, 1751, aged forty-four 
years; and January 1, 1752, Joseph married Chloe Seward, 
of Durham. She was a daughter of Ebenezer Seward. Joseph 
was buried in the churchyard of Northford parish, but his 
tombstone was badly defaced by time; that of Hanna, his first 
wife, was still standing about 1880. 

Joseph and Hanna had child: 

168 Hanna, born at Branford, Nov. 18, 1740, and died Nov. 

20, 1751. 
Joseph and Chloe had child: 

169 Solomon, born Dec. 13, 1753, at Branford.

with the revolutionary cause, practically every man capable 
of bearing arms signed the document setting for the ideas of 
the General Association. " Enos Talmadge " is among the 
signers. See " History of Easthampton," by H. P. Hedges.

marriage is not recorded at Easthampton and it is probably 
to her that Rev. Buell refers when he records, " a child of 
Hanna Talmage, baptised 1754." She seems to be the only 
one to whom he could have referred. Their child:

Thomas married second, Elizabeth Wick, of Easthampton, 

where the Rev. Samuel Buel records their marriage on Septem- 
ber 20, 1752-3. Elizabeth Wick was the daughter of John 
Wick and Elizabeth Jones, and was bom October, 1730, and 
died September 24, 1785. Their children were:

Thomas married a third time, but had no more children. 
He lived in New Jersey, residing for some time in each of the 
following places : Elizabethtown, Baskingridge, Sussex County, 
Wantage township, and finally at Piscataway township. 

It is recorded by their son Thomas, that his mother Eliza- 
beth Wick was the granddaughter of the aunt of her husband 
Thomas, and that Enos Tahnage of Easthampton living in 
1752 was Elizabeth's great-grandfather and Thomas' grand- 
father. This may be so but so far I have not been able to 
verify it. We have at present nothing but the gravestone of 
Enos to verify his existence and there are no records (town 
or church), that refer to Talmages whose ancestry does not 
seem very clear and who might be the children of Enos. Nor 
is there the record of a marriage of a Jones or Wick to a girl 
who might be the daughter of this Enos Talmage. However, 
it is possible that the marriage took place before 1696, the 
records of which period are lost and that the other children 
removed from Easthampton or associated themselves with 
Bridgehampton.

154 JOSIAH TALMAGE. Born at Branford, Conn., 
November 25, 1736 ; he was baptised by the Rev. Hunting of 
Easthampton, Long Isfand, May 1, 1737. On March 15, 
1759, her married Sybil Todd, daughter of Stephen Todd, 
Warham Williams, the Town Clerk of Branford, officiating. 
They resided at Branford for a while, but later went to 
Cheshire, where Sybil died at the age of thirty-six, on April 
23, 1778, and Josiah six years later in 1784. 

Public records of New York and Connecticut States prove 
that several of Josiah's younger brothers took part in the 
Revolution. Of Josiah we have simply the one incident related 
by his sister Sally, to Henry Talmadge on August 12, 1846, 
which Mr. Talmadge recorded at the time. 

" When the news came to Branford that the British had 
landed at New Haven Josiah Talmage, my great grandfather, 
immediately mounted his horse, took his gun and powder and 
ball and provisions, and started for New Haven, and met them 
in Mark Lane. He fought till they got his horse from him 
and then he fought till he recovered his horse and the British 
retreated to their ships. He fired at them from behind a post 
or stump and the post stood for several years with the bullet 
holes in it that were shot at him. He returned home in safety 
after being absent three or four days." A reference to any 
history of the taking of New Haven by the British, will show 
that this was a typical instance of the fight. The country 
rose up to resist the British, every man acting independently, 
as his own general. 

Josiah was probably deterred from taking a more active 



Generation Six 67 

part in the war as he had three or four children all under six 
years, and most Revolutionary soldiers were much younger 
men than he. His oldest son Samuel, was also a soldier of the 
Revolution. 

Josiah was a farmer and a cooper, and his children were : 

294. Samuel, bom at Branford, Feb. 2, 1760.

prison-ship in the New York harbor. He was found dead with 
a piece of old shoe in his mouth. 

Another record states he was captured by the British in 
1782, so the date of his death is doubtful, though the first ac- 
count is I believe the more authentic.

247 COL. BENJAIMIN TALLMADGE. He was bom 

at Brookhaven, February 25, 1754 ; he graduated from Yale 
College in 1773, after which he taught school. It is said that 
President Dagget of Yale College, examined him when he was 
only twelve years old and found him sufficiently advanced in his 
learning to enter Yale College, but he did not do so for several 
years. 

During the greater part of the Revolution he was an officer 
on the staff of General George Washington, the Commander- 
in-Chief. His ability and boldness as a soldier are recognized 
by the leading histories of the War. One of his most notable 
achievements being his attack on Fort George, Long Island, 
November, 1780, which he captured including the ships under 
its guns, and his return to Connecticut without the loss of a 
man. As a result. Congress passed a resolution of thanks to 
Major Tallmadge and his men, and General Washington sent 
him a letter of congratulation. His many achievements are 
too numerous to consider here, but many may be noted in his 
official correspondence with General Washington, and his auto- 
biography probably gives many interesting details. 

In passing it must be noticed that Major Andre was captured 
by men in his command and was in his custody until his death. 
Even this unfortunate gentleman gave his testimony to the 
kind and thoughtful conduct and gentlemanly bearing of Major 
Tallmadge. 

After the war. Col. Benjamin Tallmadge made his home in

Litchfield, Conn., wiiere lie became a successful merchant and 
bank president; for many years he was a representative in the 
United States Congress, from 1801 to 1817, after which he 
refused a re-election. 

On March 18, 1784, he married Mary, daughter of General 
William Floyd, a New York representative in the Continental 
Congress, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and 
later a Governor of New York. She died June 3, 1805, in her 
forty-second year; and Col. Benjamin married, second, Maria 
Hallet, daughter of his old friend, Joseph Hallet, of New York, 
on May 3, 1808. He died at Litchfield, March 7, 1835, and his 
widow died September 18, 1838. His children were: 

658 William Smith, bom Oct. 20, 1785.

" The Magazine of American History," for the years 1879, 
1880, 1881, 1882, contain much very interesting matter con- 
cerning Col. Benjamin Tallmadge. 

One of Col. Benjamin Tallmadge's most highly prized souve- 
nirs of the Revolution was a portrait of General George Wash- 
ington, with which his chief presented him shortly before liis 
death. An interesting incident showing the intimacy between 
Col. Tallmadge and General Washington, is the fact that Col. 
Tallmadge posed for the lower part of the famous portrait of 
Washington by Trumbull. General Washington's time was so 
taken up with public affairs that at his request, Col. Tallmadge 
posed for the legs, Trumbull having pronounced Col. Tall- 
madge's legs an exact pattern of General Washington's. 

" Col. William Smith Livingston possessed great physical 
strength, and with Col. Benjamin Tallmadge, had the reputa- 
tion of being the handsomest man in the Revolutionary Army." 
They were second cousins.

further particulars.) 

Elisha Galpin took his son Henry to Plymouth, Conn., to 
be baptised, where he had been born, and his father still lived. 

At the age of sixteen Henry graduated from the Westfield 
Academy, and got a position in a Hartford bank ; later he went 
into business in Troy, N. Y., with his brother Elisha, but soon 
left for a bank position in New York City. In 1852 he went 
to Memphis, Tenn., where he became a member of the firm of 
Cossitt, Hill and Talmadge, wholesale merchants, which was 
very successful. 

Slaveholding being very distasteful to him, he decided to re- 
turn North in 1858, to the more congenial society of New York 
City. For some time he lived on the heights of Weehawken, 
N. J., together with his brother-in-law, Frederick H. Cossitt. 
James Brown, one of the founders of the famous banking house 
of Brown Brothers, and several other wealthy men. He later 
moved to New York City, and bought 538 Madison avenue in 
1871, where he lived until his death, March 19, 1907. He be- 
came a member of a banking firm which about 1868, became 
Henry Talmadge & Co., and still exists. At the time of his 
death he had been a banker in New York City longer than any 
other man ; he had been a trustee of the Central Trust Co., the 
most successful one of its kind, for twenty years. He was a 
director of the Mechanics National Bank of New York City 
for twenty-one years ; and was senior elder at the Church of 
St. Nicholas, at Fifth avenue and Forty-eighth street, where 
he had been a member of the consistory for thirty years. For 
twenty-five years he was a director and treasurer of the New 
York Juvenile Asylum. 

Outside of his family and business his most absorbing in- 
terest was his church, and his chief recreation reading. 

On May 21, 1896, he married Helen Atwood White, who was 
bom March 11, 1855, and died June 26, 1905. She was the 
daughter of Heman Lincoln White and Lucy Macintosh Dun-

The records at Winchester contain no baptisms at Newton 
Stacey or Barton Stacey prior to 1713. Those for Wherwell 
date from 1624. The marriages recorded at Winchester prior 
to 1650 are: WiUiam Talmadge and Alice Blake, October 3, 
1595; Robert Talmadg and Alice Hunt W. of East Woodhay, 
October 11, 1602; John Brodowe and Joan Talmage, January 
30, 1602; John Clarke of Shawbourne and Annis Talmage, 
July 16, 1604; John Pearse and Mary Talmayge, October 24, 
1625; Thomas Buckland and Alice Talmage, February 18, 
1632. These marriages all occurred at Faccomb. There were 
apparently no marriages of this family in the other parts of the 
county on record. 

A letter dated December, 1906, from Rev. U. Z. Rule, Vicar 
of Barton Stacey, says the early records were presumably lost 
or destroyed, for the parish records are now in his keeping and 
they do not go back further than 1715. Also there is at 
present no one of the name in the parish.

progenitors in North America, about two hundred 3'ears since, 
to the year of our Lord 1829. 

By me, Thomas Talmage the 3rd of the 4th generation — so 
far as has come to my knowledge ; which was obtained by oral 
conversation — 1st partly from my immediate father Thomas 
Talmage the 2nd of the 3rd generation. 2ndly, partly from 
a Major Potter, an intelligent gentleman, immediately from 
Great Britain, who had a personal acquaintance with the origin 
of the family — and which was of Welch extraction, and 3rdly 
from a written correspondence, kept up for some time, by me, 
with Col. Benjamin Tallmadge, (late member of Congress) 
county of Litchfield, state of Connecticut. All substantially 
agreeing in the same account, has induced me, Thomas Talmage 
the 3rd, of the 4th generation, to make a record thereof, this 
30th day of Jan. 1829., (there being no written family record 
as known of by me) for the use of future generations. 

A member of the family original, having performed some 
great achievement for the benefit of his government — a Royal 
Grant was made to him (and his successors, of the male kind) 
of Nobility, with a large estate annexed to it, to go down by 
legitimate descent to the oldest son, through succeeding gen- 
erations, well understood by the honorable title of Lord Dorsett. 
(Dysart). 

In the year 1779 — happening to have a conversation with 
the aforesaid Maj. Potter, who was then in America, he in- 
formed me that Lord Tellemach, then Lord Tallmadge, or Earl 
of Dorsett, was yet living, and about 80 years of age, but hav- 
ing no issue or descendant in Great Braittain to inherit after 
him, it was generally believed that both his title and large es- 
tate would revert to the Crown royal, after his decease, which 
things, tis presumed, have long since taken place. 

(The name Tellemech was of Welch spelling and pronuncia- 
tion, but was changed to suit the idiom of the English Tongue 
to Tallmadge, which is still kept up to this day with the Con- 
necticut family, and pretty generally by the remaining family 
at East Hampton, and only altered as I presume, by my father, 
in order to make the name shorter in writing, as his own brother 
Daniel kept up the original spelling till his death. A legitimate 
heir to the Peership might have doubtless been found, either in 
the family in Connecticut, or in the one at East Hampton, but 
as no family Registry, regularly kept, could be found, so as

to produce sufficient evidence of the proper facts, and as the 
inheritance according to the Royal Grant, could not be pos- 
sessed without returning to Great Brittain again, the idea of 
obtaining it was given up.) 

In the time of severe religious persecution, it is said, that 
two of the brothers of the then Lord Dorsett, came over to 
America (somewhere tis presumed, in the year 1600), which was 
then parcelled out into Brittish Colonies. The one, settled 
somewhere in Connecticut, name not now recollected by me. 
The other, Enos Tallmadge and his wife (who were my great 
grand parents), settled on Long Island, East Hampton, Col- 
ony of New York. 

Their progeny were 4 sons, Enos, Thomas, John and Daniel ; 
and two daughters, names not known. 

The three first sons, and, 'tis presumed, the two daughters 
lived and died somewhere near the place where their progenitors 
first settled. 

Daniel, as my father informed me, was the youngest of the 
brothers ; and pretty early in life he came to Elizabeth Town, 
N. J. There he married and settled. Dying young he had but 
two sons, Daniel and Thomas (the last was my immediate 
father) , and a daughter named Hannah. My father being then 
about three years old (as he has often told me), was taken by 
my Mother's sister Eunice, then married to Thomas Riggs, and 
settled at Baskingridge, Somerset Co., New Jersey. There he 
was brought up, till about 15 years of age, when he returned 
to his sister Hannah, then married to John Ross, Esquire, of 
Elizabeth Town, and with whom he learned the trade of a 
House Carpenter. 

After serving his apprenticeship out, and when he had ar- 
rived to 24 years he married Hannah Norris, of respectable 
family, by whom he had three sons — Daniel, John and Enos. 
About this time my father removed his family to, and settled 
at Baskingridge, aforesaid. Pretty soon after this his first 
wife died, and was buried in the churchyard in that place. My 
father, being now a widower, took it in his head to visit his 
predecessors at East Hampton. There he had the pleasure 
of seeing his grandfather, Enos Tallmadge, his grandmother, 
and three of his uncles, then all living. His grandparents 
were both very aged, the husband about six feet, three inches 
high, the wife rather of smaller stature than the ordinary. At

this place father became acquainted with Ehzabeth Wick. She 
was granddaughter of one of his aunts, and great granddaugh- 
ter to his grandfather, and, of course, they were 2nd cousins. 
They were shortly afterwards married by Rev. Samuel Buel, 
and then departed together for Baskingridge. 

I now proceed to give a history of my fathers family, re- 
specting their births — places of their nativity — times of their 
decease, and where buried, all which I am well acquainted with, 
either personally or by information from my parents, etc. 

Weekly Register, New Haven, Connecticut, Saturday, Decem- 
ber 6, 1873. History of a Connecticut Family. Geneal- 
ogy of one of New Haven's First Settlers. 

Among the names of the original grantees or purchasers of 
town lots at the settlement of New Haven in 1639 as pub- 
lished in a late number of the Weekly Register, were those of 
Robert and James Tallmadge. The history of the latter is 
unknown, but several of the descendants of Robert have resided 
in New Haven in unbroken succession from that time to the 
present — a period of 234! years ; while many have removed to 
various portions of the Union and filled places of honor and 
trust in the civil and military service of the country. A brief 
history of this old Connecticut family may not be uninteresting 
to your readers ; and I have taken the trouble of collecting a 
few facts and dates regarding the same. . . 

The present family is said to have descended from Lionel 
Tallmasche, a gentleman in great favor with King James I. 
of England, who made his eldest son a Scottish peer as Lord 
Huntingtower. Two of the brothers of this family, James and 
Robert, b€came Puritans and were obliged to flee from England 
taking refuge in Holland, whence they came to America and 
settled in Boston, in 1630. Here they remained until 1639, 
when they joined the original party of pioneers which pene- 
trated the wilds of southwestern Connecticut and laid the foun- 
dations of the present beautiful city of New Haven. 

Robert established himself as a planter and became identi- 
fied with all the various projects for the improvement and pro- 
tection of the new colony. We have no record of any particular 
military exploit performed by him during the Indian hostilities 
which followed the settlement, but it requires no stretch of 
imagination to picture the pious wrath that filled his Puritan 



346 ' Sources of Information 

soul at the murders and robberies of the savages, or the apt- 
ness with which he quoted an appropriate passage of Old 
Testament Scripture as he pulled the trigger which sent a red- 
skin to the happy hunting ground. He evidently trusted in the 
Lord and lived temperately, for after performing his duties 
faithfully to the church and state for a period of nearly half a 
century he died about 1680 at the ripe age of eighty years. 
His children are: 

Thomas, born Oct. 17, 1650. 
Sarah, born Sept. 19, 1652. 
John, bom Sept. 11, 1654. 
Enos, born Oct. 4, 1656. 
Marah, born Sept. 2, 1659. 

Thomas Tallmadge, the eldest son of Robert, also settled in 
his native place and became a prominent citizen. He was a 
Lieutenant in Captain Bull's company of Colonial troops, and 
was present and distinguished himself at the burning of Sche- 
nectady by the French and Indians in 1690. He was a person 
of great phj'sical strength as well as personal courage and 
took a prominent part in all the military operations of those 
perilous times. The Indians specially disliked to encounter him 
in battle and gave him the soubriquet of " Powder Tom." It 
is said that whenever they discovered an expedition against 
them was headed by " Powder Tom " they concluded it was best 
to either submit at once or to leave the neighborhood very 
suddenly. He was not in the habit of sending a peace com- 
mission to civilize them before punishing the offenders, but he 
first conquered them in battle and then civilized the survivors, 
what few there were remaining, etc.

The facts as we now know them do not entirely verify either 
the record in the family Bible or the article in the Weekly 
Register, though they are corroborated by such evidence as an 
old silver snuff-box with the Dorset or Dysart arms engraved 
on the lid which has been at least a number of generations in 
one branch of the family, while another family has some very 
old silverware that was made in Holland and is believed to have 
been brought from there by their ancestor Robert, one of the 
founders of New Haven.
