PREFACE. 



Several years ago I was asked a question concerning my 
ancestors, which I could not answer, and in trying to find the 
answer, I was surprised to learn how little I knew about the 
Tarleton family. The relatives with whom I talked were but 
little better informed. About that time I saw several published 
family histories, and wished that some one would do for our 
family what others had done for theirs. As no one else seemed 
inclined to do so, I finally decided to make the attempt myself. 

Of the time, effort, and expense given to this work I need not 
speak ; those who have had some experience will realize what it 
has cost ; others cannot, even if told. But I have also found 
much of interest and pleasure in the work, and, better still, have 
found many pleasant acquaintances among my far-off cousins. 
Most of those to whom I have written have taken some interest 
in the family name and history, and sent me the records in 
their memory and possession ; a few have given cordial and 
considerable help. To all I herewith extend my thanks for their 
assistance. 

Of course 1 cannot vouch for the accuracy of these records. 
I have only tried to give them just as they were given to me, 
except in a few cases of evident mistake. When different dates 
have been received, I have sometimes given both and sometimes 
the one that seemed most likely. 

Most of the history of the family for the first hundred 
years in this country has come from the published State and 
Town Papers of New Hampshire and from the county records at 
Exeter, N. H., with a little help from histories of towns and 
counties, and from old newspapers. Our ancestors were not 
literary, and have left scarcely anything in writing, except the 
records in the Family Bible, and even these are scanty. 

I am aware that the arrangement of these records is both 
unusual and illogical. I began this collection by writing to 
those living, and tracing backward I came to six persons, back

of whom I could not go for some time. As there seemed to he 
six separate groups not far from the same size, and each group 
knowing something of its own memhers and not much of the 
others, I came to speak and write of the six brandies — Stileman, 
Elias, William, Joseph, James, and John. Afterwards I found 
that the first four were sons of Elias^ and that a more logical 
arrangement would have been into tliree branches — Elias", 
James", and John^ ; yet I decided not to change from my first 
plan. I have given the records of the first two or three 
generations first, and then followed with these six branches in 
genealoofical order. 

I have given most of my spare time and some money to this 
work for four years. Perhaps more time and money would have 
given better results, but 1 have done the best my circumstances 
would allow. Mistakes will be found, for it is almost impossible 
to avoid them in a work of this kind ; imperfections you will expect 
to find. Init probably not as many as I have found. If this little 
book shall give interest and pleasure to any : if it shall lessen 
our selfishness and widen our sympathies ; it it shall make us 
more thoughtful of those who have gone before us, and so more 
worthy of being remembered and loved by those who come after 
us, I shall not regret what it has cost me. 

Kev. Jacob Chapman, the compiler of five family histories, 
well says : " We are deeply indebted to others who have gone 
before us for what we have and for what we are. If we deny 
our obligations to them, we exhibit our ingratitude and our 
folly. Every one who has lived a decent life desires to be 
remembered, and especially by his relatives, and we are not 
following the Golden Rule unless we also cherish the memory of 
our ancestors." 

And now I close with a cordial greeting to every member and 
connection of our family, and with the earnest desire that every 
name may be " written in the Lamb's book of life," so that when 
the records are finally examined we shall all have an entrance to 
our Father's home in heaven. 

C. W. TARLETON. 



TARLETON PARISH. ENGLAND;^ 



A tew miles from Liverpool lies the parish of Tarletou, 
separated from Croston by the Douglass, a small river rendered 
navigable in 1727. It comprises some 5,380 acres of land, 
flat and tolerably fertile, and 300 acres of unreclaimed bog to 
the westward. A large part of the land is now under potato 
cultivation for the never failing markets of Liverpool, Man- 
chester, and Preston. The rent is from thirty to forty shillings 
per acre and tending upward. 

" Tarleton either gave or received its name, like many other 
Lancashire townships, from an ancient family settled at this 
place." As the family name first appears as Walter de (of) 
Tarleton, it seems more likely that the parish gave its name to 
the family. 

Two old deeds, signed before 1400, are on record. Li one, 
Adam de Tarleton and another person give lauds and tenements, 
which they had (apparently as trustees) in the towns of Croston, 
Tarleton, etc. ; in the other, Thomas Banastre del Bank gives to 
his son Thomas "all his massuages, lands, and tenements in the 
town of Tarleton, wliich were formerly John's, the son of John 
de Tarleton." It would appear that originally a family by the 
name of Tarleton held the property to which these deeds relate. 
Although there is no proof of the statement, it is supposed that 
all the Tarletons we know of are descended from this family. 

There is a ti-adition coming from the Tarletons of Ireland that 
the family originally came to England from Normandy about 
the time of the Norman conquest (1066), but a recent and 
competent authority states that "the family is of Saxon origin, 

*For a fuller account see "History of the Hundreds of Lancaster, County 
Palatine," and "History of the County Palatine and City of Cheshire," by 
George Ormarod, 1882 ; also " Genealogical and Heraldic History of the 
Landed Gentry of Gt. Britain and Ireland," by Burke (last edition, 1894).

taking its name from Tarlcton (parish) in Lancashire. The 
pretix ' de ' in English family names does not imply Norman 
descent, the earliest form of surname being the distinction 
betAveen two people bearing the same name ; thus, John of 
York, John of Chester, the 'of being rendered ' de.' But 
' de' was also used to imply landed estate." 

In England the eldest surviving son inherits his father's titles 
and estates, and his family record is carefully kept. Sir Alfred 
H. Tarleton, of London, now represents the line of eldest sons, 
and has in his possession the "pedigree roll" going back to 
1240. The following abstract from Burke's "Landed Gentry" 
shows briefly his lineage : 

The Tarleton family were seated early in the thirteenth century 
at Aigburth, near Liverpool, in the county of Lancaster. The 
records of H. M. College of Arms give : Edward Tarleton^''. of 
Church Stile House, Liverpool, sixteenth in descent from Walter 
de Tarleton. He was commander of the man-of-war " Dublin," 
a justice of the peace, and mayor of Liverpool, 1682. He was 
born 1620, married 1640 and again 1661, died 1690, buried at 
St. Nicholas, Liverpool. He left two sons, John and Edward, 
and the last had three daughters, the youngest of wliom married 
Timothy Tarleton, showing there was another family of Tarletons 
in Liverpool at that time. 

John^*^ (M. D.), mayor of Lancastei-, b. 1650, m. twice, d. 
1721, buried at St. Nicholas; had sixteen sons, but only two 
had children. 

Thomas^*, a merchant, b. 1G80, m. 1715, d. 1731, bur. 
in St. Paul's Churchyard, London* ; had four sons and two 
dauiihters, but onlv one son had children. 

John'^, of Aigburth and of Bolesworth Castle, County Chester, 
and mayor of Liverpool, 1764, was b. 1710, m. 1751, d. 1793, 
bur. St. Nicholas. He had five sons, William, Thomas, Banastre, 
John, and Clayton. Only Thomas left sons. 

Thomas^\ of Aigburth and of Bolesworth Castle, b. 1753, m. 
1775, d. 1820, bur. at Malpas ; had three sons, Thomas, John 

*His will, dated Oct. 2, 1730, and bequeathing three tenement houses in

unmarried and the third without children. 

Thomas^\ of Bolesworth Castle and captain Twenty-sixth 
Dragoons, b. 1776, m. 1805, d. 1836, bur. at Malpas ; had five 
sons and five daughters. The first, third, and fourth sons died 
unmar. The youngest son, William, b. 1820, went to Hobarts- 
town, Tasmania (south of Australia) , mar. there, and had John 
W., b. 1852; William, b. 1856; Leigh T., b. 1859, and three 
daughters. The second son was

Sir Alfred H. Tarleton is justice of the peace for the county 
of Middlesex, Lord of the Manor of Cranfield, and formerly a 
lieutenant in the Royal Navy, where he served from 1874 to 
1888. He holds the estates of Breakspars, Uxbridge, Cranfield, 
and Brockley. His city residence is 58 Warwick Square, 
London. 

Sir Banastre Tarleton, son of John Tarletoi?^, was born at 
Liverpool, Eng. , Aug. 21, 1754. At the breaking out of the 
Revolutionary war, Banastre left the study of law, and purchased 
a cornetcy of dragoons. In December, 1776, he commanded the 
advance guard of the patrol which captured Gen. Lee in New 
Jersey, and served with Howe and Clinton in the campaigns of 
1777-8. After the evacuation of Philadelphia he raised and 
commanded, with the rank of lieut. col., a cavalry corps of reg- 
ulars and Tories, called the British Legion. This corps was 
constantly rendering important service to Lord CornwalHs in the 
south, until he and Tarleton surrendered at Yorktown. In May, 
1780, he surprised Col. Buford, and massacred his entire force, 
refusing to give quarter, and so " Tarleton's quarter" became 
a synonym for cruelty. He was in many engagements, and 
was a brave and skillful, though cruel, officer ; he was below 
middle size, stout, strong, and heavily built. 



in TARLETOXS OF ENGLAND. 

After his return to England he was appointed colonel of the 
Eightli Light Dragoons and later lieutenant (or major) general. 
He was elected member of parliament from Liverpool in 1790, 
and held that position for twentv-two years, acting with the 
liberal and reform party. 

In 1815, he was made a baronet, and later received the title of 
Commander of the Bath. He published, in 1787, "A History 
of the Campaigns of 1780-81 in the Southern Provinces of 
America," 518 pages. He died Jan. 23, 1833, having a wife 
but no children. He is the first Tarleton that we have found 
with a right to a coat of arms. His name is continued throusrh 
his brother Thomas, who inherited and transmitted to his 
descendants the family estate at Aigburth. 

The following is condensed from an article in the Boston Globe : 
A priceless relic of Revolutionary days has just been placed in 
the state house at Columbia, S. C, for safe keeping. It is the 
sword which Tarleton used in leading the British troopers at the 
battle of Cowpens. Col. "William Washington, the gallant 
leader of the American cavalry, pressed Tarleton so closely in 
his fight as«to be able to have one exchange of saber blows with 
the British leader. Washington's sword cut Tarleton's fingers, 
and the British colonel dropped his steel, spurred his steed, and 
obtained safety by flight. An American soldier saw the fight 
and picked up the sword, which has since been preserved in the 
family. The sword is a yard long, curved and heavy, and bears 
the marks of the fight. The sword of Gen. Marion hangs 
near by. 

Admiral Sir John Walter Tarleton, H. C. B., died on 
the twenty-fifth of September, 1880. He was born 1811, the 
son of Mr. Thomas Tarleton, of Bolesworth Castle, county of 
Chester, and grandnephew of Sir Banastre Tarleton. He 
entered the Royal Navy in 1824, and attained the rank of 
admiral in 1879. He commanded ships, saw considerable serv- 
ice, and held many high offices. He married, 1861, Finetta 
Esther, daughter of the Hon. Baron Dinsdale, and leaves one 
son, Alfred Henry, and two daughters, Mary Beatrice and Edith 
Finnetta. — Abstract from the London Times. 



EARLY TARLTONS IN LONDON. 



The early home of the Tarletons was near Liverpool, and the 
eldest sons, as heirs of the estates, have lived near there until 
recent times ; but there were other members of the family living 
in other parts of England, especially in London, before 1600. 

Richard Tarlton* was an actor in London at the time Shakes- 
peare wrote his plays. One writing at that time and naming 
the great men of England, excuses himself for mentioning "stage 
players " by saying that "• excellence in the meanest things 
deserves remembrance." He names " Richard Bourbridge and 
Edward Allen, two such actors as no age must ever look to see 
the like ; and to make their comedies compleat Richard Tarleton, 
who for the Part called tlie Clown's Part never had his match, 
never will have." For " writers of plays " he names William 
Shakespeare and Benjamin Johnson. If Tarleton's profession 
gives liim no great honor, his associates may at least save him 
from contempt. Another Avriter says of him : "Our Tarleton 
was master of his faculty. When Queen Elizabeth was serious 
(I dare not say sullen) and out of good hvmior, he could 
un-dumpish her at his will." His name also appears as author 
of several small books. He was born at Coudover, Shropshire, 
about one hundred miles northwest of London, and died in 
1.5b8, probably in London. If his manners and morals were 
rather too free even foi' his times, we may hope that his professed 
repentance and reform were genuine. 

The Harleian' Society of England has published more than 
twenty volumes, consisting of copies of the Parish Records ^of 
christenings, marriages, and burials in different parishes in 
England, beginning with the reign of Queen Elizabeth. In the 
preface to the first volume it is stated that " our business is only 
with the records of those who, at the time the entiy was made, 

* The People for Whom Shakespeare Wrote, p. 12. 



12 TARLETONS OF ENGLAND. 

were persons of recognized social position." Tlit; original 
records would probably give more information, but being out of 
reach these copies have been used. 

The name of Tarleton first appears on these records at the 
burial of William Tarleton, Feb. 6, 1588, in St. James Pai'ish, 
Clerkenwell (then a suburb of London). Margaret Tarleton 
was married in the same parish the next year, and another 
Margaret in St. Thomas Parish. May 17, 1599. The name 
appears on these records only these three times before 1600, but 
in the next hundred years it occurs more than thirty times. 
While there is some conjecture in arranging these separate 
items into families, the following list of Tarlton families in the 
vicinity of London is probably correct but not complete : 

1. Richard Tarlton and Elizabeth Greene, mar. July 9, 1618, 
in St. James parish. Frances, tlieir daughter, born and died in 
1618. 

2. Matthew Tarlton, " show maker." by his first wife, Brigete 
(d. Apr. 24, 1653), had Elizabeth (d. 1637). and Mary (d. 
Aug. 6, 1648) ; and by his second wife. Elizabeth, had Joseph 
(chr. Apr. 24, 1655), Matthew (chr. Nov. 18, 1656 and died 
next mouth), and Elizabetli (chr. Mar. 7. 1657), St. Mary's 
Parish. 

3. Henry Tarlton and Sarah , mar. . had William 

(chr. ¥eh. 10, 1638), and Margaret (bur. July 1, 1639" . 

4. Thomas Tarlton and Elizabeth . had Elizabeth (chr. 

Feb. 16, 1661). 

5. Ritchard Tarlton and Edeth Lockson, mar. May 22, 1666, 
in St. James Parish. From the name, marriage, and date (see 
will of Ruth Tarlton) we think this may be the Richard who came 
to New Hampshire, but there is no proof. 

6. Robert Tarlton, "Clerk of Pewterer's Inn" (bur. Aug. 
15, 1720), mar. Sept. 27, 1667, Kathrina Heath (d. Aug. 9, 
1704), and had Robert (chr. June 7, 1676), Sarah, Elizabeth, 
Sarah, Thomas (all four died before 1680), Thomas, Pleasant, 
and Catherine (chr. 1680. 1681. 1685). St. Dionis Parish. 

7. John Tarlton, mar. , and had Elizabeth (bur. Aug. 

10, 1670). 



LONDON TARLETONS. 13 

The burial of several servants of Tarltons are mentioned, 
showing some of the families were not poor. Many of the 
bnrials were in the churches, as in the "North Isle," the 
"Great Vault," and "in ye 5th seat behind the pulpit." The 
relation of these families to each other and to the emigrants is 
not known. 



LATER TARLTONS IN LONDON, 



Thomas Waldon Digby Tarltou's father was a military man 
and his mother was a Quakeress. Thomas married Elizabeth 
Stephenson, lived fifty-two years, and had four children : i, 
Richard, who had three children, Walter, Annie, and Jessie ; 
ii, Amelia ; iii, Robert, who married Rose Spooner, and had 
Arthur, Matthew, Lucy, and Anne; iv, Anne Ruth, b. 1827, 
d. 1898, m. 1849, Mark Bean. Tlieir daughter, Emily C, m. 
Rev. J. W. Atkinson, for thirty-two years pastor of the Latimer 
Congregational Church, Stepney. Their sou, Montague Atkin- 
son, barrister-at-law, sends these facts. 

The Robert and Matthew above are the ones whose names 
appear on the London directory as drapers, living in St. George 
street. 

The only other Tarlton name on the directory is Sir Alfred 
H., 58 Warwick Square (p. 9), who has given valuable infor- 
mation. 

There are said to be two soldiers in the British army in South 
Africa by the name of Tarlton ; a French family of this name is 
also reported. 



NEW CASTLE. 



"New Castle, Historic and Picturesque," by John Albee, 
1884, is a very interesting little book to all lovers of "ye olden 
times," and well worth reading by those who want to know the 
early history of our family in this country. From this source 
most of the following account is selected. 

New Castle is the largest of several islands lying in Ports- 
mouth harbor, and was generally called Great Island by the 
early settlers. It is some two miles long by one mile wide, and 
is rectangular in shape, witli an irregular coast line. Bridges 
connect it with Portsmouth, which name was often applied to 
both places in early times. 

A little southwest of New Castle, just across an arm of the 
sea called Little Harbor, is Odiorne's Point, where the. first house 
in New Hampshire was built, in 1623. Near by is the Odiorne 
homestead, which has been in the family since 1660; and also 
Mason Hall, once occupied by John Alason, to whom was granted 
the whole province of New Hampshire. New Castle is in full 
view from the Point, and was first occupied between 1623 and 
1635, for between these dates the company sent out by Mason to 
occupy his grant, " did build many houses upon the great 
island," and " erected a tlbrt, and mounted it with tenn Guns, 
for the Defense of said Island and River." This fort was at 
the northeast point of the island, and was first called The 
Castle, afterwards Fort William and Mary, then, during the 
Revolutionary war. Fort Hancock, and when it was rebuilt in 
1808, it probably received its present name. Fort Constitution. 
Since the Civil war it has been only an unfinished, desolate rum, 
garrisoned for some years with one soldier, and then by none. 
The first commander of the fort that we know of was Richard 
Cutts, in 1674, and when he died he, was succeeded by his 
lieutenant, Elias Stileman. The old fort has been several times 
alarmed, but has never fired a belligerent gun, though it has 
once been captured. Before Paul Revere's famous ride to 
Lexington, " on the nineteenth of April, seventy-five," he rode on 



16 TARLETONS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

a somewhat similar errand to Portsmouth, on the thirteenth of 
December, '74. He was sent by the Boston Committee of 
Safety to a simihir committee in Portsmouth, to inform them 
of the British order that no more gunpowder should be shipped 
to America. Accordingly the Portsmouth Sons of Liberty, with 
the patriots of New Castle, in all about four hundred, invested 
the fort and summoned Captain Cochrane and his five soldiers to 
surrender. It was not the fort they wanted but the hundred 
barrels of powder, which they carried away and secreted imder 
the meeting house in Durham. Most of it was afterward used 
in the battle of Bunker Hill. During the war with Spain, a 
company of soldiers was stationed at the fort, and two large dis- 
appearing guns were put in position near by. 

Very uear the fort is Fort Point lighthouse. At the first, the 
only light was a lantern hung from the flagstaflT of the fort, but 
in 1771, Governor Wentworth had a massive eight-sided wooden 
lighthouse built there. It was forty feet in diameter at the 
base, and ninety feet high. Kew Hampshire ceded it to the 
United States in 1789, and in 1879 it was torn down and an 
iron tower put in its place. The light was kept by Elias Tarl- 
ton^ for some years after the Revolution, and also by his great 
grandson, Elias Tarlton^, some eighty years later. The homes of 
the different Tarltons who have lived at New Castle, have been 
within a half mile of the fort and lighthouse. Jerry's Point, at 
the southeast of the island, was early known as JaiFrey's Point. 
from one of the early settlers who built here, more than two 
.centuries ago, Jaffrey's cottage, now owned and occupied by 
John Albee. In its parlor was held the Provincial Assembly in 
1682-83. The old fortifications here have been leveled at 
different times to make room for those that took their place. 
Several heavy guns were put in position here in 1898, command- 
ing the outer harbor of Portsmouth. The United States life 
saving station is also here, and their watchman has a wide 
expanse of ocean to scan, while the crew have a full share of 
rough and dangerous work. They are sometimes called to the 
Isles of Shoals, six miles distant. Elias Tai-lton^ is one of the 
crew. 



NEW CASTLE. 17 

Near the southwest corner of the island stands the AYentworth 
House, a beautiful and spacious summer hotel, built in 1874, but 
twice enlarged. From its lofty towers, one hundred and seventy 
feet above the sea, a wide expanse of sea and land is visible — 
the inner and outer harbor of Portsmouth, the many bays and 
creeks and islands, the Isles of Shoals, many hills in the distance, 
and, in a very clear day, Mt. Washington, of the White Moun- 
tain range, due north, and ninety miles away. The free bridge, 
close by, across Little Harbor, connects with the main land. 
Although this is the site of the earliest settlement, but few 
private houses are now seen, for the village moved to tlie north 
side of the island many years ago. Two small islands lie 
between the northwest corner of New Castle mid Portsmouth, 
and so a bridge connects New Castle and Goat Island, this and 
Shapley's Island, and this with Frame Point, in Portsmouth. 
Here is the toll house, where the traveler must '•'stand and 
deliver when he crosses the ' Three Bridges.' " From these 
bridges is a good view of Seavey's Island, where Spanish 
prisoners were kept in the summer of 181)8, of Piscataqua 
river, which is simply an arm of the sea, of the ship channel to 
the wharves of Portsmouth, and of the United States navy yard, 
just across the river, but in the state of Maine. In New Castle, 
near the bridges, is Riverside Cemetery, of modern use, for the 
early inhabitants were mostly buried in little groups about the 
island, with no name, nor date, and often with not even a stone 
to mark the spot. 

New Castle was in early times the capital of the Province, 
the seat of government, and the residence of many prominent 
men. In 1693, alter long eifort, it obtained a separation from 
Portsmouth and became "'aTowne Corporate, by the name of 
New Castle," by a royal charter from William and Mary, dated 
May 30, 1693. The original charter is now in existence, and a 
copy is given in Albee's book. The town records from 1693 to 
1726 were long supposed to be lost, but in 1873 they were 
returned from England. Wlieu and how they got there no one 
can now tell. 



18 TARLETONS OF NKW HAMPSHIKK. 

The Province House stood on a slight eminence not far from 
the fort, and its fonndations are still visi])le, and its well is still 
in use. A part of it was moved away, and is now used as a 
dwelling-house. Most of the Tarleton homes were near this 
place. 

The list of settled ministers of the Congregational church goes 
back to 1682, and all were educated men. The first church 
stood very near the fort; it was sold and another built in 1704 
near the site of the third and present one, which was built in 1835. 
In the first house was a bell of remarkably sweet tone, a gift of 
the English government, which was transferred to the second 
house. For many years it called the people to worship and to 
funerals ; it sounded out tlie peace after the Revolution, from 
sunrise to sunset ; it tolled for the death of Washington and for 
his funeral; it summoned the people to defend their shores in the 
war of 1812 ; and, when the news of peace with England in 
1816 reached New Castle late one evening, it rano; out the 
joyful news all night long, and in the morning became silent 
forever. Benjamin Randall was born here in 1749, was con- 
verted nnder the preaching of Whitefield, and joined the 
Congregational church. About 1780, he began to spread hi§ 
peculiar views, and became tlie founder and a noted preacher of 
the Free "Will Baptist denomination. A cluirch of this faith 
was organized here about 1787. which has since taken the name 
of '■'■ Christian cluirch." Schools were early established and 
well maintained, but at first were only for boys. 

The population has not varied greatly for tw^o hundred years, 
and has seldom been less thau five, or more than seven hundred. 
In 1696, there were one hundred and eight taxable men on the 
island, and at the next official census, in 1773, there were six 
hundred and one inhabitants, of whom thirteen were slaves. In 
1884, there wei-e one hundred and thirty-six houses and six 
hundred inhabitants, but the census of lb90 gave only four 
hundred and eighty-eight. 

The bi-centenuial of New Castle w^as celebrated Aug. 17, 
1893. A neat pamphlet gives an account of the services, and 
the addresses. 



SPELLING, 



The name first occurs as Walter de Tarleton, Adam de Tarle- 
ton, and John de Tarleton, before 1400, but by 1600 the " de " 
had been dropped. The Tarletons of Liverpool have always 
retained the "e," but the Tarltons of London generally omitted 
the "e" after 1(300. The early settlers in New Hampshire, 
and in Maryland, omitted the "e," which is one evidence that 
they both came from London. Those who live in New Castle, 
and in St. Mary's county, Md., now omit the " e." There is 
no evidence that members of either family in this country used 
the "e" until after 1800; but since then it has been gradually 
coming into use, till now the majority spell their name Tarleton. 
Of those now living, all of the Stileman, William, and James 
branches use the "e"; also all of the Elias branch, except 
those living in New Castle and Portsmouth, and all of the 
John branch, except the descendants of Thomas Tarlton of 
Portsmouth. All of the Joseph branch omit tlie " e," except 
John W. In these records we have tried to spell the name 
of the individual as we think the person named spelled it, 
or spells it now, but when using the name generally, we have 
spelled it Tarleton. In some places the name is pronounced 
as if spelled Tolton, and this may have given rise to the curious 
ways in which others have sometimes spelled it — Tarliugton, 
Tarrington, Tarrinton, Toulton, Tolton, Talton, Talten. Thei'e 
is no evidence that any of the name ever spelled his own name 
otherwise than Tarleton or Tarlton, unless it be Richard, the 
emigrant. Some of the various spellings of his name seem to 
be his own use. 



FIRST NAMES. 



Several names occur so often, especially in the earlier history, 
that they may be considered family names. The most note- 
worthy of these is Elias. The father of Ruth (Stileman) Tarl- 
ton was named Elias ; so was her grandfather, and her great- 
grandfather, and probably back still further. She named her 
first child Elias, and there has been an Elias Tarlton in direct 
descent ever since. Each of them has made New Castle his 
home for a part of his life, and all but the first two for nearly 
all of their lives. Elias', Elias^, and Elias**, grandfather, father, 
and son. are now living on the inland, near the home of their 
ancestors. A look at the index shows the partiality for Bible 
names, while king Richard, and "William, and George, and 
John, and our own presidents, are not forgotten. The name of 
Stileman Tarlton (sometimes spelled Stilman), borne by at least 
three persons, points back to the emigrant's wife. Mary occurs 
twenty-six times, John twenty-four times, William twenty-one 
times, and George twenty times. 

Some were satisfied with two names, but most have a middle 
name ; and one was so generous he gave each of his four chil- 
dren two middle names. 



RESIDENCE, 



Of the residence of Richard Tarlton^ the emigrant, before he 
came to this country, nothing is positively known, although there 
are some reasons for thinking that he lived in London. After 
he came to Great Island (or New Castle, as it is now called), he 
lived very near to Fort Point, and here his four children, Elias, 
William, Richard, and Ruth, were born. There is a tradition 
common in the family that " there were three brothers who 

came from England ; one settled in Portsmouth, one in 
New Castle, and one went south." This does not agree with 
the records at all, but if " se father" is inserted in the blank 
space above, it agrees exactly. Elias Tarlton- removed about 
1720 to a farm in Portsmouth some three and a half miles from 
the city, and five or six miles from liis olil home, where he died 
in 1785. The farm was owned by his children, and finally sold by 
his gi'and children about 1840. Richard^ remained at New Castle, 
and some of his descendants are now living near the same spot. 
As we can find no further trace of William-, we accept the 
tradition that he " went south," but when, and where, and if 
he had a family, we cannot learn. It is quite certain he is not 
the ancestor of the Tarltons of St. Mary's county, Md. We 
only know of Ruth by her mother's will, and do not know if she 
married, nor where she lived, nor when she died. 

Elias'', son of Elias", returned to New Castle, and some of his 
descendants have lived there ever since, and so have some of the 
descendants of Jolm', son of Richard-. These two branches 
were united by marriage in 1792, and again in 18o3. The first 
resulted in a numerous posterity, but the second did not. 

Probably none of the Tarltons (except William-) lived outside 
of New Castle and the adjoining towns of Portsmouth, Rye, 
and Greenland, till about 1760, when William^ went to Pier- 
mont in the northern part of the state. Soon after, his brother 
Stileman* removed to what is now Newfields, near Exeter, N. H. 



22 TAKLETONS OF NKW HAMPSHIRE. 

According to the United States census there were fifty-four 
Tarltons in New Castle in 1850, forty-two in 1860, seventeen 
in 1870, and fifteen in 1880. There are about a dozen living 
there now and a half dozen in Portsmouth, but there is only one 
boy under twenty-one in both places to keep up the name. 
Members of the family are now living in other parts of New 
Hampshire, and in Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Ala- 
bama, Michigan, Colorado, Nebraska, California, Washington, 
and the Sandwich Islands. 



OCCUPATION. 



The Tarleton family seems to have been of the middle class 
from the first. The early parish records of London show that 
they were of some social standing-, yet not wealthy, nor holding 
important office. The Tarletons of Liverpool seem to have been 
rather more prominent. In this country, too, most of the 
family have been of the common people. Few have been found 
in office and none in jail ; few have been wealtliy, and only 
three are known to have been in the almshouse, and these were 
old people, with no children to care for them. Many of those 
who lived in New Castle or Portsmouth have followed the sea at 
least a part of their lives, and often had command of vessels. 
Many have been farmers, and several have been in trade, from 
the small country store to the large cotton commission merchant. 
A dozen have been connected Avith railroads, and half as many 
have been bookkeepers. There has been no lawyer nor doctor 
among the Ncav Hampshire Tarletons, and only one minister. 
Four have been college graduates, and several have been school 
teachers, though no one has made teaching a life work. No 
man, and only three women, are known to have signed their 
name with a X, which is unusual for a history of two hundred 
years. Many have been members of some church, but more 
have not. A few have been strong temperance men, but many 
followed the customs of early times, and drank more or less New 
England rum ; several injured, and some ruined themselves by 
strong drink. On the whole, it is perhaps an average family of 
the early New Hampshire settlers and their descendants. 



MILITARY HISTORY, 



COLONIAL WARS. 

The only record of our name that we find at this time is that 
of Elias Tarlton. If others were engaged their names have not 
been kept. 

ASSOCIATION TEST. 

In March, 1776, Congress passed a resohition advising the 
colonies to disarm all who were "■ notoriously disafi'ected to the 
cause of America," and who "refused to associate to defend by 
arms the United Colonies against the hostile attempts of the 
British Fleets and Armies." Accordingly, the New Hampshire 
Committee of Safety sent the following pledge to all the towns 
for signatures. It was in fact, if not in name, a declaration of 
independence by the people of New Hampshire similar to, but 
earlier than the National Declaration of July 4, 1776 : 
"AVe, the Subscribers, do hereby solemnly engage, and 
promise, that we will to the utmost of our power, at the Risque 
of our Lives and Fortunes, with Arms oppose the Hostile Pro- 
ceedings of the British Fleets and Armies against the United 
American Colonies." Among the fifty-seven signers in New 
Castle were Elias Tarlton and John Tarlton. Only four on the 
island refused to sign. Among the five hundred and nine 
signers in Portsmouth were Richard Tarlton, James Tarlton, 
Jr., and Elias Tarlton. Fifteen refused to sign. In the state 
there were eight thousand one hundred and ninety-nine signers, 
and seven hundred and seventy-three refusals. The descendant 
of a signer of the Association Test is eligible to membership in 
the Sons of the Revolution, or in the Daugliters of the Revolu- 
tion. So the first four branches of the family are eligible by 
both the signing of the Test and the military service of Ellas'^, 
the fifth branch is uncertain, and the sixth branch is eligible 
through John^. 



MILITARY HISTORY. 25 

REVOLUTIONARY WAR. 

Among those who rendered military service during the Revo- 
lutionary War are : 

Elias Tarlton, William Tarlton, Elias Tarlton, Jr., George 
Tarlton, Isaac Tarlton, Mary Tarlton's husband. 

In the War of 1812 the following sei'ved at the forts in 
New Castle and vicinity : Jonathan Tarlton, William Tarlton, 
Joseph <|>arlton, Elias Tarlton, Ellas'^ Tarlton (navy), Nathaniel 
Tarlton . / A . c/^^ . T^, r/e / •■ 

In the Mexican War were B. Frank Tarlton and perhaps 
Stileman Tarlton. 

In the Civil War, on the Confederate side, was Lieut. <^_^y; 
j^il^'^y Robert Tarleton ; on the Union side, William B. Tarleton 
(navy), Stephen B. Tarlton, Charles W. Tarleton, Mary J. 
Tarleton's husband, Cornelia Tarleton's husband, Frances A. 
Tarleton's husband, Catherine R. Tarleton's son, Betsey Tarl- 
ton's son, Lucretia Tarlton's son, and Mercy Tai'lton's two sons. 
This list does not include the Maryland Tarletons. 

In the Cuban War it is not known that any New Hampshire 
Tarleton was in the military service. 



ENGLISH ESTATES, 



Rumors of great wealth in England that belonged to heirs in 
America have disturbed our family as they have others. Tn 
1872, Rev. J. W. Tarleton was notitied by an agent for foreign 
claims that there was an advertisement for the heirs to a Tarleton 
estate in England, and that if he could prove his relation, he 
would doubtless receive the money. Old letters show that he at 
once began the collection of the family records, but how long he 
continued, and what results he obtained, is not known, for none 
of his records can be found. As he seems to have accepted the 
erroneous statement made in tlie *•' History of Rockingham and 
Strafford Counties," 188-2, that Elias Tarlton (father of William, 
Stileman, and Joseph) was the emigrant, he certainly did not 
trace our ancestry back to England. 

William A. Tarlton, of New Castle, is said to have under- 
taken the same work for the same purpose, but at what time is 
not stated. The extent of his work is not known, as his written 
records cannot be found. The writer of this has found it difRcult 
to convince some that he was not engaged in this work for the 
same purpose as the others. It might be thought that these 
rumors originated with the claim agents, if Amos Tarleton had 
not himself seen the notice — "Wanted, the heirs of William 
Tarleton" — posted on a door in Liverpool, Eng. 

If any of our family in this country have great expectations of 
becoming rich in this way, let them remember that there are 
Tarleton s in England more nearly related than we are ; that it is 
very doubtful if all our ancestry can ever be proved by the 
evidence required by law ; that the administrator of the estate 
could not divide the property till he knew the exact nvimber of 
heirs ; and that the endless lawsuits required to prove heirship 
and disprove false claimants would give the lawyers a chance to 
take the whole estate. 



THE STILEMAN FAMILY. 



The name of Elias Stileman* (or Styleman) appears on " The 
Herald's Visitation of Hampshire, England," in 1634, and his 
coat of arms and crest are described. This was either the 
emigrant, or more likely the father of the emigrant, Elias Stile- 
man\ who was one of the early settlers in Salem, Mass. (perhaps 
1629). He was tavern keeper, constable, and clerk of court, 
and died 1662. He seems to have had a daughter, Damaris, 
whose daughter, Ruth Langford, is mentioned in Rutli Tarlton's 
will. He also had one son, Elias Stileman-, who was born in 
England in 1615, and lived with his father in Salem till he 
removed to Portsmouth, N. H., in 1658. He was admitted to 
the church in Salem in 1639, and made a "freeman" iu 1642. 
His first wife was Mary, who died soon after 1684, over sixty 
years of age ; the second Avife was Mrs. Lucy Willis. By Mary 
he had one son, Elias Stileman', who was baptised in Salem, 
Mar. 15, 1640-1, and married, Apr. 10, 1667, to Ruth 
Mannyard. He died soon after, leaving a daughter, Ruth, who 
married, about 1692, Richard Tarlton, of New Castle, and from 
whom all the New Hampshire Tarletons are descended. 

Elias Stileman- had a cousin, Richard Stileman, who was born 
iu England in 1611, and lived some years iu Cambridge and 
Salem, and in 1655 removed to Great Island (New Castle), where 
he died 1678. By his first wife he had a son, who died young; 
and by his second wife three daughters, two of whom married, 
and one son, Richard, who died before 1708, probably unmarried, 
leaving a will now on record. And so, while the cousins, Elias 
and Richard Stileman, have many descendants now living, they 
have none bearing the name of Stileman.

28 TARLETONS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

Hon. or Maj. F^Has Stileman^ was "almost always in office" 
while he lived in Portsmouth ; for while his residence was on the 
island, both parts were practically one at that time and often spoken 
of as Portsmouth. He was one of the original members of the 
Congregational churcli there. His name appears some thirty 
times in Vol. I, New Hampshire State Papers, as selectman, 
councillor, commissioner, lieutenant, etc., in connection with 
various kinds of public business. He died in 1695, leaving a 
will now on record, and a copy of which is given below and also 
a copy of the will of his granddaughter, Ruth (Stileman) 
Tarlton.

TARLTONS OF MASSACHUSETTS, 



Henry Tarlton.* In a'^ list of passengers on the " Arabella" 
from London to Boston, 1671, is the name of Henry Tarlton. 
They had a son, Robert, born Oct. 6, 1678, and five days later 
the mother died, aged twenty-two. Within a year he married 
Deborah, daughter of Daniel Gushing, of Hingham, Mass., but 
lived less than a year after this. No further ti'ace of their son 
Robert occurs, and he probably left no children. The relation 
of Henry to Richard Tarlton, of New Castle, is not known. 
In the King's Chapel Burial Grounds, Boston, Mass., are two 
headstones with the following inscriptions :

TARLETONS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

[Note: When the town is in New Hampshire the N. H. isusiially omitted in 
the following pages. 
The figures before names refer to pages in the book.] 

Richard Tarlton. In the parish records of St. James 
church, Clerkenwell (then a suburb of London, Eng.), is recorded 
the marriage of " Ritchard Tarlton and Edeth Lockson, May 
22, 1666." The will of Ruth Tarlton (p. 31) second wife of 
Richard, provides, "if my husband Richard Tarlton deceased, 
his daughter shall come to this country she shall receive a gold 
ring," proving that Richard Tarlton married in England, and 
that his wife died leaving a daughter there. If this Richard of 
the parish register is the one who came to New Castle, he was 
probably born near London about 1640. Richard Tarlton is 
the ancestor of the New Hampshire Tarletons, and probably came 
to New Castle with John Mason, between 1685 and 1690, and 
w^as employed by him as " chief artificer," or head carpenter, 
in the erection of houses on the island. He probably owned the 
house in which the Assembly met in 1693-1696, for the follow- 
ing bill is given in "State Papers of New Hampshire," Vol. 
XVII, p. 647 : 

" The Counsel & Assemblv is to Rich: Tarrinton for house 
room D"". To 34 days theire two Last Siting, 2 days whereof ye 
Counsel sate by themselves, at 2^ 6'^ p diem, is — but leave it to

In 1693, the name of Richard Tarletown and others is 
attached to a petition for the separation of New Castle from 
Portsmouth into a town by itself. About the same time Richard 
Tarlton 's name and thirty-two others appears on the following peti- 
tion : "To y" Honorable, y*^ Lieut Govern"" and Councill of this their 
Maj'ties Province of New Hampshire; — the humble petition of 
the Inhabitants of the Great Island, humbly sheweth : That

"At a Councill held at New Castle, Aug. 10 — 1694, at 12 of 
the clock," mention was made of " Rich'' Torlington (Tarlton) 
Constable of New Castle" ; a much higher office then than it is 
now. 

The name of " Rlch'^ Taulton " appears among tlie ninety- 
eight inhabitants of New Castle in 169o. 

His second marriage was at New Castle about 1692 to Rath 
Stileman, probably the daughter of Elias Stileman, Jr., and 
certainly the granddaughter of Major Elias Stileman of New 
Castle, as appears by his will (p. 28), now on record at the 
register of probate for Rockingham county, in Exeter, N. H. 
By the treasurer's statement of payments in 1693 (State Papers, 
Vol. XVII, p. 621), it appears that 10s. was paid to Ruth Tar- 
lington. and again, July, 1693, £2, 6s. was paid to Ruth Tar- 
rinton. 

While Richard Tarlton and a party of fishermen were casting 
anchor, he was caught by a turn of the rope, pulled under water 
and drowned, 1706. His widow survived him a few years. 
Her will (p. 30), dated Jan. 4, 1707, was admitted to probate, 
Mar. 4, 1708.

38. Elias Tarlton- (Richard^), bora ia New Castle, Aug. 

13, 1693, " being Lord's day." The most that is known of him 
comes from old deeds now on record in the office of register of deeds 
for Rockingham county, at Exeter, N. H. He married Mary 

C\/\ about 1720, and it is probable that the farm on which they 

3^ lived was hers, for in the same year that he died his son gave a 
mortgage deed of the farm: "Said tract lying common and 
undivided among the heirs of Mary Tarlton, of Portsmouth, 
deceased," The mortgage was for £59, only a small part of 
the value of the farm, and was dated Oct. 24, 1785. The 
mortgage was afterward cancelled and the property divided among 
the heirs, and remained in possession of their families till about 
fifty years ago. 

In 17 04, the " inhabitants of the parish of Rye and the 
inhabitants of the South West end of Portsmouth " signed a 
petition "for a road across the woods from or near Thomas 
Cotton's farm iu Long Lane, so called, to the highway in Rye near 
to Wallis Foss's." The petition was granted by the House of 
Representatives, May 10, 1764, and the road is now known as 
the "Ocean Road." Among the sixty-four signers were EliaS 
Tarlton, Sr., his sons, Elias, John, Richard, James, and Benja- 
min, and his grandson, Elias, Jr. As this road was very near 
his farm, it shows he was living there in 1764. This farm was 
bounded on the southeast by the " main road leading from Ports- 
mouth to Rye," or "Long Lane, so called," but known, since 
Gen. LaFayette traveled over this road on his visit to Ports- 
mouth, in 1826, as the "LaFayette Road"; on the northeast by 
"land of Nathaniel Cotton"; on the northwest by "land of 
Thomas Seavey," and " of John Banfield" ; and on the south- 
west by "a cross-road leading from Greenland to Long Lane." 
It contained " 100 acres more or less," and was three and one- 
half miles from the city. A part of this farm is now owned by 
S. S. Whidden. The old house that Elias and his family used 
was torn down a few years since, but their barn is now standing, 
though remodeled. 

May 26, 1718, " EliasTarlton of New Castle, cooper," bought 
of Katherine Weymouth and her three daughters, for £40, a 

4 



38 TARLETONS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

"peice of land on ye Great Island in ye aforesaid town of New 
Castle, being batted on the highway ; being land purchased by 
James Weymouth of George Vaughn." 

May 6, 1723, Elias Tarlton of Portsmouth sold one acre of 
land in New Castle, for £12, 10s., and his wife Mary joins in 
the deed ; so he moved to Portsmouth soon after he was 
married. 

In 1731, he was one of a committee of three to dispose of 
undivided land in New Castle, and gives a deed accordingly. In 
1737, he was one of several signers to a petition for a second 
meeting-house in the south part of Portsmouth. 

He bought one and one-fifth acres of marsh in the parish of 
Rye for £21, 12s., Jan. <S, 1742, and was then a resident of 
Portsmouth. 

In 1749, " Elias Tarlton of Portsmouth, cooper," bought 
another one and one-half acres of marsh in Rye, and ten years 
later two other lots of marsh in Rye, of one and one-fifth acres 
each, paying for the four lots £323, 12s. 

July 9, 1771, he sells fifty acres of land in Portsmouth to 
Benjamin Tarlton, his son, for £50. No wife joins in this deed, 
and perhaps she was dead. 

He died 1785, aged 92, and a I'ow of mounds in what was once 
a field near the barn, and some rough stones without any name or 
date mark the last resting place of Elias and his family. 

The following deed is dated Mar. 2, 1789. "We, Elias 
Tarlton, Benjamin Tarlton, John Tarlton and Richard Tarlton 
of Portsmouth, and Ruth Tarlton of Rye, Spinster," (the daugh- 
ter and heir of Joseph Tarlton, deceased), sell to "James Tarl- 
ton of Portsmouth, cooper," for £50, land in Portsmouth, " it 
being the seventh part of a farm lately owned and improved by 
Elias Tarlton, deceased."

reached maturity, were :

Three of the six sons — Elias, Joseph, and Richard — lived 
away from home, but the other three always lived on the old 
homestead, and left it to their children, but they do not seem to 
have had any grandchildren, and the farm passed out of the name. 

"^ \,y^' Richard Tarlton^ (Richard^), born in New Castle. The 
exact date of either birth, marriage or death is unknown, but he 
was probably born soon after 1695, and died a little before 1759. 
As he had four children old enough to sign deeds at the last date, 
he was married perhaps thirty years or more earlier. He was a 
"freeholder" in New Castle in 1723, and one of 131 tax-payers 
in New Castle, in 1728, his tax being £1, 10s. 

Although it is probable that lie always lived in New Castle he 
was one of the original proprietors of Epsom, as shown by the 
following Charter : * 

" George, By the Gi-ace of God, of Great Britain, France 
and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith. 

To all People to whom tliese presents shall come, Greeting :

at the head of Nottingham, and Northward of land formerly 
granted to the children of Samuel Allen, decs'", the same to be

John Wentworth." 

The first meeting of the proprietors was in the ferry house in 
New Castle, Monday, Dec. 4, 1727. Other meetings followed. 
Nov. 9, 1732, a Committee reported that there were forty-seven 
proprietors in New Castle, thirty-three in- Rye, and sixty-three in 
Greenland. " The proprietors then proceeded to draw their sev- 
eral lots as follows. . . Richard Tarleton lot 16. . . " 

He kept this lot of forty-seven acres, "more or less," till his 
death, and then his son John bought it of the other heirs, as 
appears by the following abstract: "We Richard Tarlton of 
Portsmouth, Cordwainer (shoemaker), and Benjamin Bell Jr. 
Mariner, and Elizabeth Bell, his wife, in her own right and Ruth 
Tarlton, all of New Castle" sell for £120 old Tenor, to "John 
Tarlton of New Castle, Cordwainer," " all our right, title, and 
interest in a certain lot or Grant of Land in the township of 
Epsom, . . being the 1 6"' Lot in number. Said Lot of land 
was granted to our father Richard Tarlton, deceased." Dated 
Feb. 3, 1759. (Reg. of Deeds, Vol. 113, p. 404.) 

John owned this land as long as he lived and at his death we 
shall hear from it again. All that is known of the first three of 
Richard's family comes from the above mentioned deed.

38. Elias Tarlton^ (Ellas', Richard^) , born in New Castle or 
Portsmouth in 1720 or 1721. The name of his wife and date of 
marriage are lost. His name appears on three deeds. The first 
Oct. 24, 1785, when he borrowed £59, at the death of his father, 



42 TARLETOXS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

and gave a mortgage of the farm as security ; second, Mar. 2, 1 789, 
when with his brothers he sold a part of the farm to his brother 
James; and hist, May 24, 1791, when he sokl for .£74 his share 
of his father's farm, "bounded easterly by road from Portsmouth 
to Eye," " southerly by road from Portsmouth to Greenland," 
"northerly by land belonging to the heirs of my late father, 
Elias Tarlton, deceased." In the first deed his occupation is given 
as a carpenter, and in the last as a ship carpenter. In each deed 
his residence is Portsmouth. Perhaps his wife would not be 
expected to join in either of the first two deeds; but we should 
expect her to join in the last if she were living. Her name 
does not appear on either. His name is found several times in 
Vols. 14, 16 and 20 of the N. H. State Papers. Under the 
head of "French War Rolls," Vol. XIV, is " A List of the men 
under the Command of Cap' Job Clement a Gard for Rochester 
& Barrenton," April 7, 1848. Among the sixty-six names in 
the company is "Elias Talton," who joined June 3. The 
length of his service is not known. In the same volume is "A 
Pay Roll of Cap' John Calfe's Company in Coin' Pierce Long's 
Regiment in Continental Service, Stationed at New Castle at the 
Entrance to Piscataqua Harbour, in the State of New Hamp- 
shire, From the Time of engaging in the Service to the 7"^ day 
of December 1776." 

On this roll is the name of Elias Talton, private, mustered 
Oct. 5, place of abode. New Castle, amount of wages £4, 2s., 
8d., eighty-six men in the company. Another pay-roll, with the 
same names, dates from Dec. 7 to Jan. 7, 1777. At the same time 
there is "A Pay Role for that part off Cap' John Calfs Comp-' 
"Who are fit to March to Ticonderoga, being for one m° 
pay in advance from the 7"" Jan-^' to the 7"' Feb-'' 1777," and on 
it is the name of Elias Tarlton, private. On "A Return of 
Soldiers Who have not Marched for Ticonderoga " is the name 
"Elias Tarleton," Feb. 25, 1777. 

In 1784, he was keeper of the lighthouse at Fort Point, for 
the President and Council " ordered the Ti-easurer to pay Elias 
Tarlton five pounds seventeen shillings and four pence for attend- 
ing the Light House at Fort Point from 22'' July to 20"^ Oct, 



EARLY SETTLERS. 43 

1784." Later there is " A Pay Roll for the Company stationed 
at New Castle from y^' 13* Oct^ 1785 up to y*^ 13"^ Febry 1786," 
signed by Meshaeh Bell, Capt. Only eight names are given and 
the company was probably only a small guard for the fort. 
Elias Tarlton, private, received .£16, just double the pay of 
the other privates. The next pay-roll carries the same names 
forward four months, and four months later, Sept. 13, 1786, 
there is another pay-roll of the company bearing the names of 
Elias Tarlton, George Tarlton, Elias Tarlton, Jr., and others. 
The last Elias was probably a son of the first. As Capt. Bell 
died July 18, " Then Elias Tarlton (who was specially appointed 
to the care of the Fort William & Mary, and the Company Lately 
Commanded by Capt. Meshech Bell, deceased) personally 
appeared and made Solemn Oath to the truth of the foregoing 
Roll, by him Signed." On the journals of the House and Senate 
for Sept. 19, 1786, is '' A vote that the pay-roll of Elias Tarl- 
ton amounting to forty nine pounds be paid out of the Treasury 
by order of the President." Then there is " A Pay Roll for the 
Matross Company, Commanded by Capt. Titus Salter, Stationed 
at Fort William and Mary, From September 14* 1786 to Janu- 
ary 14"' 1787." The other names on the roll are the same, but 
Elias Tarlton is now sergeant at £4 per month, or twice that of 
the privates. 

There is another and last pay-roll of this company, with the 
same names and pay, dated May 31, 1787. June 14, 1791, 
there is "A vote to pay Elias Tarlton JC4, 13s., 4d. on Capt. 
Salter's Roll." 

He seems to have kept his position as light house keeper 
while a soldier, for there is a vote that "the monthly pay of 
Elias Tai'lton of forty shillings for attending said light " at New 
Castle be paid. 

It is probable he spent his last days with his son Joseph at Rye, 
for in an old newspaper we find that "Elias Tarlton lived in 
Rye, and when he was upwards of 91 years of age, walked from 
there to South Newmarket to spend Thanksgiving with his 
grandson, Samuel Tarlton, and returned to Rye the next day, in 
the same way, the distance being 12 miles; and when he was 



44 TARLETOXS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

upwards of 92 years of age, and only a few days before his 
death, he walked from Iiis home in Rye to New Castle to see his 
brothers, from there to Portsmouth, took dinner with a oraiid- 
daughter, and from there home, a distance in all of nine miles, a 
remarkable performance for one of his great age." He died 
Dec. 2, 1811, aged 90, according to a Family Bible, but this 
does not agree with the statement above. There is no record of 
his family, but it is certain that those named below were a part 
of his children :

V. Joseph, b. 1762 ; d. Apr. 6, 18.52. 

But very little can be told of the other children of Elias", and 
that little comes mostly from old deeds and one old will. Even 
the order of their birth is unknown, and so the names are given 
in the order in which they appear on the deed of Mar. 2, 1789. 

38, Benjamin Tarlton'^ (Elias-, Richard'), born in Portsmouth 
and lived on his father's farm and worked as cooper. With others 
he took a deed of goods, tools, and stock, Feb. 12, 1767. He 
bought twenty acres of land in Portsmouth of his father for £50, 
July 9, 1771 ; and twelve years later bought the " remaining 
two-fifths" of fifty acres of land in Portsmouth for £22, 10s. 
In 1785 he bought a quit claim of fifty acres in Portsmouth 
(probably the above) . He joined with his brothers in a deed 
of part of his father's farm, Mar. 2, 1789, and in 1793 he bought 
from Ruth Tarlton, daughter of his brother Joseph, her s-hare of 
the farm for i£39, 12s. He made his will Mar. 3, 1799, making 
bequests to his wife Mary, his son Benjamin, his daughter Molly, 
and his daughter " Hannah Bab." It is not likely he had other 
children then living. The will was proved Oct. 20, 1813.

EARLY SETTLERS. 45 

Jan. 24, 1829, the son Benjamin, " of P. husbandman," sold 
for $93 land in Portsmouth " being i part once owned by Elias 
Tarlton and afterward owned by Ruth, heir of Joseph Tarlton, 
formerly of Rye, deceased, and conveyed by Ruth to my father 
Benjamin, Mar. 20, 1793." It "lies between the shares of 
Elias and John." The northern part of the old farm went out of 
the family name Dec. 22, 1833, when Benjamin sold fifty-two 
acres with buildings to William and S. W. Whidden for $723. 
This land is now owned by vS. S. Whidden, son of William, who 
remembers Benjamin amd thinks he died, unmarried, between 
1840 and 1850. Benjamin served as a private in Capt. William 
Marshall's company of "Sea Fencibles ", from May 27 to Nov. 
27, 1813, and from Apr. 1(3 to July 17, 1814, at New Castle. 

The Portsmouth Journal of Jan. 5, 1828, gives the death of 
" Miss Mary Tarlton aged 65," and this may be the Molly men- 
tioned before. The Portsmouth Journal of June 11, 1842, gives 
the death of " Mr. Benj. Tarlton aged 63 of Lafayette Road." 
Of " Hannah Bab " nothing more is certainly known. If " Bab " 
was her middle name, she may be the one given in the census 
list of Portsmouth, 1850, as Hannah Tarlton, aged 77. 

38. John Tarlton"' (Elias-, Richard^), born in Portsmouth, 
and seems to have lived and died on his father's farm. He sells 
twelve acres of land in Portsmouth, with barn on said land, and 
one third part (all he owns) of the house where he lives, and all 
his stock and utensils to his son, Daniel Tarlton, for Si, 000, Nov. 
7, 1809. No wife joins in the deed, but in the Portsmouth Journal 
of Mar. 18, 1826, is the notice: " Died suddenly Mrs. Abigail 
widow of Mr. John Tarlton, aged 82."

Daniel, b. 1785(?) ; d. Jan. — 1849, aged 61. 

Daniel sold this land to Amos S. Parsons for $200, Apr. 10, 
1821, " also my share of the house and land where I now dwell 
near said land, and being all the land I own." Jan. 8, 1849, 
he again quit his claim to the dwelling house, " reserving to 
myself the right of living in said dwelling house during my 
natural life, or until I shall cease to live therein." There is no 
record of his mai-riage.

38. Richard TARLTON''(Elias-, RichartV), born in Portsmouth. 
It seems likely tliat he lived in Greenland, adjoining Portsmouth, 
for June 2G, 1775, with fifty-iive others, he signs the following 
petition: ^ ^»,c^^ (L . «y^ ^^ <^v ^"X^^^T

He also signs petitions from Greenland in 1783 and 1789. 
Neither names nor dates can be given for any of his family with 
certainty. An " Indenture " is recorded between "Thomas 
Packer of G. husbandman and Molly Tarlton of G. Spinster," 
Dec. 5, 1771) : " whereas mai-riage is intended and proposed 
shortly to be solemnized " they sign a contract in regard to prop- 
erty. She was very likely a daughter of Richard. (State 
Papers, Vol. 12, p. 69.) 

In the family history of Leonard Weeks is given the marriage 
of Walter Weeks and Sarah Tarleton, of Greenland, and it is 
likely she was either daughter or granddaughter of Richard. 

38. Joseph Tarlton" (Elias-, Richard^), born in Portsmouth. 

Joseph Tarlton and Comfort Tarlton, of Portsmouth, " yeo- 
man and spinster," sell one acre of land in Portsmouth, Apr. 4, 
1788. He probably moved to Rye and died soon after, for his 
daughter Ruth signs the deed of Dec. 2, 1789, and Mar. 19,

1793, she sells to her uncle " i part of land owned by Elias 
Tarlton, which came to me as being the heir of Joseph Tarlton, 
of Rye, deceased."

Ruth. No record of her birth, marriage, or death. 
Comfort was probably a sister, possibly a niece of Joseph. 

38. James Tarlton'^ (P^lias-, Richard^), born in Portsmouth; 
date unknown. All particulars of liis marriage are lost. He 
was a cooper by trade and also a farmer. He signed a petition

STRAY NAMES. 



Tlie following names are found in various places with no clue 
to the names of their parents, their brothers and sisters, or their 
children, if anv. It is certain they are not of the first or second 
generation, and almost certain thev are not of the third, and so 
must belong to the fourth or fifth. Some are very likely descend- 
ants of Richard", by his son, Richard'', although there is no 
record of his marriage or family.

20, 1780; time of service, three months, fifteen days; rate per

from West Point home, 206. He was a soldier of the New 
Hampshire militia sent ''to join the Continental army for the 
defence of West Point." (State Papers, Vol. XVI, p. 138.) 

George Tarkon, private in Captain Bell's Company at New 
Castle, at £2 per month, as appears by three pay-rolls,

sage from New Orleans to Havre, Mr. William A. Tarlton, aged

gail Tarltons in Portsmouth at this time, for this cannot be the 
one mentioned on p. 51. 

James Tarlton and Jane Hutchings, both of Portsmouth, were 
married May 11, 1815. — Portsmouth Record.

His posterity were seven children, fifty-five grandchildren, one 
hundred and ten great-grandchildren and three great-great- 
grandchildren; total, one hundred and seventy-five. So he lived 
to see four generations, himself making the fifth." 

As the statement is made tliat Ellas'* was related to the

of five of his children are given on page 44, but the names of the 
other two are unknown.

WILLIAM BRANCH, 



44. William Tarlton* (Elias^ Elias'-, RicharcP), born in 
Portsmouth or Rye, Nov. 23, 1752. He married, first, Betsey 
Fisk (born Jan. 29, 1762; died Nov. 4, 1791); and, second, 
Polly (Mary) Melvin (born June 20, 1776), daughter of Benja- 
min Melvin, of Chester. His name appears in a list of those 
who had improved laud in Orford in 1772, and also in a 
list of the young men of Orford the same year, when he was 
but twenty years old. He soon moved to the adjoining town of 
Piermont, for in 1774 he was keeping a tavern on the turnpike 
road in that town, five or six miles from the Connecticut river and 
near a beautiful sheet of water about two miles long and nearly 
a mile wide, to which he gave the name of " Tarleton Pond." 
This was his home for the remainder of his life. "• He was a 
man of large ability, intelligence and influence, and held many 
positions of trust and honor in town, county and state." His 
position of tavern keeper was one of considerable rank and 
influence in those days. The old sign is now in possession of his 
grandson, Amos Tarleton, who lives in the adjoining town of 
Haverhill. It is made of a single oaken board, beautifully 
painted. On one side at the top is the name " William Tarl- 
ton," at the bottom " 1774," and between is a painting of Gen- 
eral Wolf in full uniform with drawn sword. On the other 
side is a representation of "Plenty." 

On a pay roll of Capt. Edward Evei'itt's Company in Colonel 
Bedel's Regiment, June 24, 1776, is the name Sergt. William 
Tarlton. Dec. 15, 1777, he received a captain's commission in 
Colonel Timothy Bedel's Regiment. This regiment was on duty 
upon the upper Connecticut river frontier, "raised for frontier 
duty or Continental service, as occasion might require."

iii. Thomas died at home of diphtheria early in the sixties.

100. Benjamin Franklin Tarleton' (William^ Elias^, 
Elias^ Richard^), born in Piermont, Mar. 4, 1806. Married, 
1838, Mary Cox, of Washington, Ala., where he was in busi- 
ness with his brotlier Thomas for a few years and then went to 
farming. There is a report that he was in the Mexican war, 
and died soon after his return. This would agree with the date 
of his death as given in the family record, June 30, 1848. It 
also agrees nearly with a notice printed in tlie Portsmouth 
(N. H.) Journal that year: " Died, at Mobile, June 29th, Mr. 
Benjamin F. Tarlton, aged 40, a native of New Hampshire." 
But there is a letter in existence, written December, 1872, at 
Prattville, Autauga county, Ala., and signed Frank I. Tarle- 
ton, and the allusions to his father, William, of New Hampshire, 
and to his brothers leave no doubt that he is the Benjamin F. 
above. Those who could have explained the different dates have 
failed to do so. His wife died in 1855.

records of New Castle are missing from this date till 1801, 
when his name appears as moderator, and in the foUowdng years 
he was moderator, school committee, selectman, etc. He was 
one of the signers of the "Association Test" in 1776, and 
received £20 from the state in 1778 for rent and damages to his 
house, which was one of "sundry houses improved as Barracks 
in the years 1775 and 1776, by Capt. Parr's riflemen and other 
Continental troops." 

His name is found on several petitions, and lie bouglit or sold 
land in New Castle in 1765-1778-1787. He was a " cord- 
wainer," or shoemaker, and always lived at New Castle, prob- 
ably near the Fort. At his death his son John bought from the 
other heirs four lots of land in New Castle that " were the 
property of the late John Tarlton, of New Castle, deceased." 
One of these lots was bounded "northerly by land of the United

States, and eastward by the seaside," and the family burying 
ground was in a corner of this field, near the stone wall on the 
north side, some three hundred yards west from the seaside, and 
one hundred yards south from the Walbach Tower. No names 
or dates were placed on the headstones, and even the mounds are 
now leveled. It is likely the old homestead was located near by. 
His wife died in 1801, aged 68, and he died June 29, 1819, 
aged 83.

TARLETONS OF MARYLAND, 



EARLY SETTLERS. 

When writing to persons in different parts of the country for 
their genealogy, a numerous family of Tarletons was found 
whose ancestors lived in Maryland. To distinguish the two 
families, one is culled " New Hampshire Tarletons," and the 
other "Maryland Tarletons." The southern family, like the 
northern one, divides naturally into six branches, for all of this 
family yet found, witli perhaps one or two exceptions, can be 
traced back to one of six ancestors: Jeremiah (Catholic), 
Thomas, Caleb (Virginia), John, Jeremiah (Protestant), and 
Caleb (Kentucky). These six, though not of the same age, 
were all living in the year 1800, and probably for twenty-five 
years before and after that date. The first two were born in St. 
Mary's county, a narrow stretch of land lying between the Poto- 
mac river and the Chesapeake bay, in tlie most southern part of 
Maryland. One of the earliest settlements 'n\ the state was 
made here, of which the encyclopedias give an interesting account. 
These two were Catholics, as many of their descendants are now. 
The last four once liverd and were probably born near Hagarstown, 
in the northern part of Maryland, and were Protestants, as most 
of their descendants have been. Wliether the ancestor of these 
four came from England, or from St. Mary's county, is not yet 
decided, but various traditions of 'religious and political diflfer- 
ences in the family, leading to a separation, and also a similarity 
in names and dates, favor the latter view. 

When only a part of the following wills were known, it was 
supposed that these six were all dcfjcendants of James Tarlton, 
who was probably the emigrant. Latei-, it was learned that there 
were wills of other Tarletons on record in St. Mary's county, and 



178 TARLETONS OF MAUYI.AND. 

a few weeks before tlie printing of this book, the following copy 
and abstracts of wills was received from the register's office, 
through the kindness and liberality of Mrs. J. C. Sherley. A 
study of these wills shows that the above supposition was a mis- 
take, and we are forced to the confession that we know nothing 
positively of the i-elation of tliese six to each other, unless 
it be the accepted tradition tliat the last three were brothers. 

It is now supposed, though on very slight evidence, that Jere- 
miah (Catholic) was the son of James Tarlton (Will I) ; that 
we know^ nothing of the ancestors of Thomas; that Caleb (Vir- 
ginia) was a nephew to the last three, his father being their ehler 
brother; that the last three were brothers and sous of John Tarl- 
ton (AV'ill II), although Caleb (Kentucky) was born after tlie 
will was made; and that this family removed from St. Mary's to 
Hagarstown before 1790, as there is a record that Jeremiah 
Tai-lton bought land there at that date. Not many years after, 
Calel) removed to what is now West Virarinia, and the last tliree 
to Kentucky. The town clerk of Hagarstown wrote in 1899 : 
" There is no one of the name of Tarleton living within the 
county, nor does the memory of some of our oldest citizens 
recall the name." 

It is probable that James Tarlton (Will I), and Thomas Tarl- 
ton, who witnessed his will, and John Tarlton (Will II) were 
living in Maryland near each other in 1756, but though some 
think James and .John were brothers, we can learn nothing with 
certainty of their relation to each other, nor when, nor where 
thev were born. Nothing has vet been found to show the name 
of the first Tarlton who came to Maryland, nor when he came, 
nor where from. Any one with an inclination and with time and 
money to spare can iind a wide field for further research here. 

Many claim that the Maryland Tarltons are closely related to 
the family of Colonel Tarleton, the noted British cavalrv officer 
of the Revolution (page 9), Init no evidence has been found to 
support this claim, and a study of English records and wills 
makes the claim appear ver}* rtmprobable. The spelling of the 
name is different in the two families, although this fact has but 
little weight. If the ancestor of the Maryland family came to 



EARLY SETTLERS. 179 

St. Mary's at its first settlement, as some claim, he could not 
have been a descendant of even Edward Tarleton, the great- 
great-grandfather of Colonel Tarleton (page 9), for the first 
settlement on the mainland of Maryland was made in 1634, 
when Edward was only fourteen years old. Jf the emigrant 
came to Maryland before 1650, the connection with the Liverpool 
family must be quite remote, perhaps as much so as that of the 
New Hampshire or London Tarltons. One tradition says the 
first Maryland Tarlton came from London, which may be true, 

, but has no proof. 

The frame of an old looking glass bears this inscription : 
"This glass belonged to Steplien Tarleton, who was my great- 
grandfather, and died in the year 1687. I have had the present 
frame put to it tin's 14"' of December, 1794. Charles Wood- 

■ son." The grandson of Mr. Woodson, and bearing the same 
name, lived in Prince Edward county, Va., in l<So6. This 
Stephen Tarleton may have come to Virginia, but further infor- 
mation concerning him and his descendants is lacking. 

No private papers of early Tarltons in Maryland are known to 
exist, and many of the ])ublic records of tliose early times have 
perished in time of war and by fire, but all wills of St. Mary's 
county, from 1658 to the jiresent are on record at Leouardtown, 
Md. Tlie following are all of the wills made by Tarltons in this 
county, and furnish the earliest positive intormation concerning 
the family. Of most of these persons Ave know nothing but what 
the wills give us, and it is likely there are many others of whom 
not even the name is known.

SPELLING. 



The name is spelled iu two ways. All who lived before 1800, 
and all who have lived in Maryland, seem to have omitted the 
"e." Of those now living it is believed that all members of the 
Jeremiah (Cath.), Caleb (Va.), and John branches spell their 
name Tarleton ; while all members of the Thomas branch, all of 
Jeremiah (Prot.), except the descendants of Alfred (who take 
the "e" froiu their mother), and all of the Caleb (Ky. ) branch, 
except Joel C, spell their name Tarlton. AVhen using the name 
in a general Avay on the following pages it is spelled Avith an "e," 
this being the oriofinal form, but the names of individuals are 
spelled according to the usage of the person named, so far as 
known. 

So many dates and facts are missing tliat a different arrange- 
ment of the names is required from tlie one used with the New 
Hampshire Tarletons, and no complete and accurate charts could 
be made. AU records and facts that could be obtained are here 
given, but there would have been much fuller records if so many 
had not failed to answer letters. The writer will be glad to 
receive any corrections or additions that may be sent to him. 

The cordial assistance of Hon. B. D. Tarlton, Mrs. J. C. 
Sherley, Mrs. J. C Tarleton, Mrs. E. C. Bailey, and others, is 
here gladly acknowledged. 



J-EREMIAH (CATHOLIC) BRANCH, 



Jeremiah Takleton (Catholic), born probably in St. Mary's 
county, Mtl., Feb. 11, 1755, where he married Eleanor 
Medley. So€rn TttW- t^t^'ne removed with his family to White 
Sulphur, eight miles west of Georgetown, Scott county, Ky., 
and became a prosperous farmer. He helped to establish here a 
Catholic churcli, and build a chapel, both of wliich are still in 
existence. He served as first lieutenant in the Revolutionary 
war. The traditions concerning his rehition to Jeremiah Tarlton 
(Protestant") are conflicting. Some say he was no relation, 
others that he was first cousin, and others that he was second 
cousin, and one claims that he was an uncle. If this Jeremiah 
is tlie one mentioned in Will I; if Jeremiah (Prot.) is the one 
mentioned in Will II ; and if James and Jolm Tarlton, the 
testators of those wills, were brothers, as seems probable but not 
certain, then Jeremiah (Cath.) and Jeremiah (Prot.) were first 
cousins. His will is on record at Georgetown. In the Catholic 
burying ground at White Sulphur, now overgrown with poplar 
sprouts, are three stones, with the following inscriptions : 
"Jeremiah Tarleton, born Feb. 11th, 1755, died July 6th, 1826, 
aged 72 yrs. ; Eleanore Tarleton, died 1845, aged 82 ; Eliza A., 
consort of Geoi'ge W. Tarleton, born Jan. 28th, died May 1st, 
1848."

JEREMIAH (PROT.) BRANCH, 



Jeremiah Tarlton (Prot.), born in 1761, either in St. 
Mary's county, in the exti-enie southern part of Maryland, or 
near Haj^arstown, in the northern part. If he is a son of' John 
Tarlton (Will II), at what time his father's family made this 
change of residence is not known. Jeremiali bought land near 
Hagarstown in 1790, and was living at Carroll's Manor, three 
miles ti-om Hagarstown, in 1800. He married, June 29, 1786, 
Mary Herbert Briscoe (born 1771, d. 1848), daughter of Dr. 

Ralph and — (Freeman) Briscoe. Ralph was the son of 

John and Mary (Herbert) Briscoe, and the grandson of Phillip 
and Susannah (Williamson) Briscoe. Susannah was the daugh- 
ter of Ralph and Anne (Tarleton) Williamson, married in 1705, 
and the granddaughter of Dr. John Tarleton'" (page 8). In 
this way the descendants of Jei-emiah Tarlton (Prot.) are con- 
nected with the family of Liverpool Tarletons mentioned on pages 
8 and 9. About 1806 he removed with his family to a farm 
three miles east of Georgetown, Scott county, Ky. The farm is 
now owned by Henry Blackl)ui-n, and the old house is yet stand- 
ing "in pretty good condition." He, with liis brother Caleb, 
"joined the Continental army at an early age and served with 
Greene and Morgan." The Tarltons have ever been lovers of 
good horses, and it is said that Jeremiah had the best race horse in 
Kentucky in his time. His will was on record at Georgetown, 
but afterward perished in the flames. He died of cholera in 1833, 



aged 72.

1806, and bought a farm of one hundred and eight acres, adjoin- 
ing his, three miles east of Georgetown, Scott county, Ky., and 
one mile from what is now known as Johnson's Mill. The Mid- 
land railroad now runs through this tract. In 1829 he sold this 
farm and bought one hundred and sixty-four and one-half acres 
in the adjoining county of Fayette, and built a house which is 
now occupied by his granddaughter. Two years later he bought 
more land, and here he lived till his death in 1S41. His widow 
died two years later. Their first three children were born at 
Hagarstown, the others in Kentucky.

THE JOHN TARLTON UNIVERSITY 
• OF TEXAS, 



A college with the above name is to be opened at Austin, 
Texas. John Tarlton is described as an "eccentric old fellow," 
whose early life is not known, but who lived from about 1855 to 
1875 in Knoxville, Tenn. ; then went to Texas, married, was 
divorced, lived almost a hermit, and finally died near 1895 at 
Granbury, Texas. He had a large property in estates and bonds, 
and having no heirs, left it by will to found a college. James J. 
Tarleton, from whom we have most of this account, heard of liis 
name and habits through his bank correspondent at Granbury, 
and wrote to him on account of a common name, hoping to cheer 
up a sad and lonely life, but the letter was never answered, and 
the old man died a recluse and alone. He probably belongs to 
the Maryland family, though just how he is related is not known. 
An unsuccessful effort has been made to learn the present condi- 
tion of the college. The city clerk of Austin writes, under date 
of Sept. 25, 1900, that he has never heard of any such insti- 
tution.

TARLETONS OF IRELAND, 



TARLETON FAMILY OF CLONMIN, COUNTY OF FER- 
MANAGH, IRELAND. 

[Note : *The following sketch comes from a member of this 
family. Comparing this account of Colonel Tarleton with the 
one of Colonel Banastre Tarleton, on page 9, and it seems proba- 
ble that there were two British officers with this name and rank 
whose history has become somewhat mixed.] 

No regular written records have been kept of this branch of 
the Tarleton family, but the earliest traditions point conclusively 
to the founder as coming over from Normandy, with William, 
Duke of Normandy, when he invaded England in. 1066. The 
name is occasionally mentioned in history as army officer or court 
attendant. At the outbreak of the American Revolution, Colonel 
Tarleton Avas sent out as a British cavali-y officer to fight in the 
Carolinas. When this war closed he was sent to Ireland, which 
was then in a disturbed state. The trouble here between the 
different religious parties was often very violent. It is not quite 
clear at what time he left the army, but we next find liim occupy- 
ing a large tract of land in the west of Ireland. 

His wife died shortly after the birth of her second son, William. 
The name of the eldest son was Henry. The colonel was after- 
ward murdered by a mob that was let into his house at night by 
treacherous servants. Armed only with his sword he killed one 
and wounded several of his assailants before he w^as overcome. 

His eldest son, Henry, afterward joined the army and is lost to 
history. WiUiam, his other son, went to the nyrth of Ireland, 
where there were large colonies of English and Scotch settlers. 
Here he settled on a farm called Clonmin, in the county of Fer- 
managh ; he was also a captain of a company of yeoman soldiers. 



228 TARLKTONS OF lUKLAND, 

He iiinrried Mavsaret T)oii<rlierty, and had a family of four sons: 
James, William, .lolin and Isaac, and one daughter. He lived to 
be ninetv-iiine vears old and his wife one hundred and (nie. He 
was five feet eight inches u\ height and strongly built. 

His daughter married an artist by the name of Ryan and has a 
large family, most of whom are living in New York. One of 
the family, John T. Ryan, is a prominent politician in New York 
city. 

James Tarlkton married and went to Australia about 1840; 
the faniilv have lost all trace of him, but think he died without 
issue. 

William Tarlkton married Miss Woods and had two sons : 
John, who married Miss Hutchison and had one boy and two 
girls, and Robert, who married Miss Armstrong but had no issue. 

John Takletox married Fanny Russel and had seven child- 
ren : James, John, William, Margaret, Fanny, Elizabeth, and 
Jemima. Most of these are yet alive in various parts of the 
world. 

Isaac Tarleton married Jane Swindell and had a family of 
three sons and four daughters. He was born about 1810 and 
both he and his wife are now living (May, I'.IOO) on the old farm 
in Clonmin over ninety years of age. Their children are : Chaides, 
John J., William, Mary Anne, Margaret, Elizabeth, and Caroline. 

i. Charles Tarleton, son of Isaac, came to America in 1861 
or 1862, and soon after enlisted in the Fourth Iowa Cavalry, 
from which he was discharged in 1865. He died of malaria 
fever in Tennessee, July, 1898, liis wife having died some years 
previous. They left one daughter named Mai'garet. 

ii. John J. Tarlton, son of Isaac, came to Amei'ica in 1867, 
when he was seventeen years old, and entered the grocery busi- 
ness in the emi«loy of Albro Brothers. He remained with them 
three years and then spent two years in traveling through the 
western countrv ; returning to New York citv, he engaged with a 



TAKLETON FAMILY OF CLONMIN- 229 

partner in the grocery business, but three years hitcr the partner- 
ship was dissolved. For several years he has been doing busi- 
ness as a wholesale grocer at 679 to 681 Hudson street, New 
York city. In 1879 he married Mary Delany, who died Dec. 8, 
1897, leaving two children, John William, l)orn 1880, and 
Mabel, born 1884. 

iii. William Tarleton, son of Isaac, and his sisters are now 
living in Ireland. He is umnarried and living on the old farm in 
Clonmin. 

The Tarletons of Ireland have always used the "e" in their 
name, excepting John J., who now omits the "• e," not seeing 
the need of it.

TARLTONS IN MONTREAL P. Q. 



The followiug abstract of a letter may be of interest : 

Montreal, P. Q., Feb. 20, 1897. 
Dear Sir : 

In answer to inquiry regarding our ancestry, ray father's name 
was William, and he was sixty years of age when he died and 
left a family of tliree boys and tliree girls. They are all dead 
but the one who is writing to you. I cannot tell my grandfather's 
name — only heard he was a soldier in the British army. I came 
out to Canada in 1858, and have a son and danghter named Wil- 
liam and Jane. Mv ancestors came from Ireland, but belonsred 
to England originally. * * * We are a working but respect- 
able people. My son (living in Montreal) * * * j^^s been 
hill clerk with a coal merchant in Scotland, in one place for about 
twenty years, and has the best of testimonials. * * * 

Yours truly, 

John Tarlton. 

In a newspaper soon after was this item : " Died at Montreal, 
Apr. 9, 18i)7, John Tarlton, 80 years." Probably the writer of 
the above letter, and perhaps his father was the William men- 
tioned in the preceding page as a son of Colonel Tarleton. There 
are other Tarltons living in Montreal, from whom we have not 
heard.
