PREFACE. 



A.S early as 1897 Mrs. Elizabeth F. I,ane was asked for a 
summary statement of her American ancestry, for use in a gen- 
ealogy of the Lanes of Killin^worth and Wolcott, Conn. 
Neither she nor her husband w^% satisfied with the meagre 
and half-authenticated results procurable at such short notice. 
Mr. Lane designed a second and improved edition of the 
^' Lane-Griswolds,'' and also a similar work for the Ferrier- 
Vanderoef-Wisner ancestors and descendants. His early 
death deprived Mrs. Lane of an invaluable coadjutor in her 
compilation. Within three years afterward both her parents 
were called from labor to rest. Their personal and local knowl- 
edge had contributed much of value to her work. 

At an early stage of her inquiries Mrs. Lane found that Mr. 
William James Hancock (then of Wyoming, now of Wilkes- 
Barre) had already been moved by the ever unea{5y spirit of 
genealogy; and from him she learned much that tended to give 
fullness and consequent genealogical value to her compilation. 
The contents of pages 7 to 27 show that among the needs of the 
hour are some more general accounts of the several families 
there shown merely in their relationships to one of their mother- 
lines, — to them already but a part of their remoter ancestry. 

Late in 1905 the results of a long and variously-baffled effort 
were sent to Elkhorn for such re-arrangement as might be found 
expedient, and for printing. Some then yet unanswered in- 
quiries delayed type-setting, and later circumstances hastened 
the work somewhat to its hurt. But nothing yet printed can 
be genealogy's la,st word. Besides, if printing must await ab- 
solute fullness of knowledge and flawlessness of editorial judg- 
ment, genealogy's first word must be postponed indefinitely. 
Generally, it is better to have tried and erred than not to have 
tried at all. Notwithstanding some proof-reader's oversights. 



4 Preface. 

it is believed that the dates are very generallj' printed as re- 
ceived. Errors in historical statement are not unlikel}^ but 
such will not mislead better-informed readers. To be at once 
genealogist and historian is to carr}- a double load, one which 
is likel}' enough to round the shoulders of a wight not too well 
trained for either function. 

The included non-Ferrier ancestries are not without interest, 
and, though not all of them verified for use here, are probablj^ 
most of them correct in substance. If not new to genealogists, 
they serve to show these families in their relationships to the 
now numerous and widelj' dispersed families descended from 
the immigrating Ferrier. There is more than one purpose 
served by printing ]\Ir. Lane's ancestor-list, as at pages 44 to 
47. Twent}' of these families were also the editor's ancestors, 
and the " Lane-Griszvolds " had some need both of correction 
and addition. It may be seen that the question-mark is used 
at the names of John Crane and George Griswold, though both 
have seemed to be good enough hj-pothetical forefathers. 

The doubt suggested in foot-note at page 19, and that other 
doubt which might seem implied b}' omission of transatlantic 
pedigrees are not meant ungracioush-. But fiercer light beats 
not upon thrones than now falls upon longevitx- statements; 
and these flaw-revealing raj'S no more permit the stride across 
the wide flood of years which rolled between Hastings-field and 
Jamestown, Plymouth Rock, or Sa\-brook Point to pass, with- 
out questioning, for genealogical verity. If but one ancestor 
in the long line of one's descent from Japheth is wanting or is 
unverifiable, genealogy must begin at such point ; though the 
winged family faith may fly straightwaj' and swiftly to its high 
mark, while proof-fettered doubt creeps endlesslj- among dis- 
continuous and illegible records. 

Compiler and editor have many kindly-helpful correspond- 
ents to thank thus briefly but unfeignedly ; for, without their 
effective aid not even such foundation as this for a worthier 
Ferrier memorial could have been laid.

THOMAS FERRIER 

AND SOME OF HIS DESCENDANTS. 



Among the names of Duke William's followers to the con- 
quest and spoliation of Saxon England, according to Bromton 
and Leland lists, (as shown in Augustin Thierr3''s '^ Norman 
ConqueJ of England, ' ' ) are ' ' Peters ' ' and Fererers. ' ' These, 
with ''Ferrers'' and '' Ferrier,"' may be variant forms of one 
name ; for it was long afterward that famil}- names, generally 
speaking, assumed something like fixed spelling, or even pro- 
nunciation. When it is recalled what havoc is made in popu- 
lar speech with many names and commoner words, and what 
ingenuities of spelling are found in latest as well as in earliest 
records and other scribe-performances, a natural distrust arises 
as to the soundness of etymolog}^ offered for many a title-name 
in the ever-widening expanse of printed genealogy. Few of us 
can sa3' how our earliest surnamed forefathers really spoke their 
newly-chosen or newly-imposed names, or to what mispronun- 
ciations they answered, or to what complications of pen-strokes 
they assented by touching the quill. ii Hence, it is not certain 
that the first man surnamed Ferrier was a worker in iron, and 
thence a horse-shoer, and thence a farrier. In its primitive 
form the name may have been a Celtic harshness of sounds, 
softened by Norman tongues into accidental resemblance to a 



1^ Similarities and differences of spelling are alike liable to mislead. For 
an instance, the Treat genealog-ist found at Trull and other parishes in Som- 
ersetshire both identity and difference of family among recorded names of 
Tratt, Trayte. Treat, and Trott ; and this confusion made it impossible to 
carry back the Conne6licut colonist's ancestors by more than four steps.

Franco-Latiu word which did not translate it. However great 
the serv-ice of etj-mologN' in finding or divining the origins and 
relationships of words in our commoner speech, it affords but a 
faint or delusive light on the first naming of nianj- families. 

Some branches or families of the now numerous posterity of 
a remote ancestor still find it useful or agreeable to differentiate 
themselves from the mass of their kindred of their father-name 
or their accidental namesakes. This, by return to some real or 
supposed archaic form of the name ; by conforming its spelling 
to some English or American anomaly of pronunciation ; or by 
a pleasing and wholly modern arrangement of letters. It is a 
genealogical task to find, as well as may be, among earlier cler- 
ical semi-illiteracies and later variations, the true and the most 
probable kinships. 

In no long time after the conquest a Ferrers or Ferrier was 
granted "as ferriage," rights in part or all of the counties of 
Kent, Leicester, Norfolk, Rutland, Warwick, and Haddington ; 
and by marriage with a Hamilton, North Britain (Scotland) was 
added. Since crossing the channel the Ferrier name has been 
well established in England, Scotland, and Ireland ; but not all 
the Ferriers were or are of Great Britain. The record of the 
English church at Leyden shows that Samuel Ferrier, of Caen, 
(Normandj-), married Mildreth Charles, May i6, 1614, and he is 
named in Drake's " Fotmders of New Eiigland'' as a passenger 
to America. It is therefore likely that he has now many Amer- 
ican descendants. 

Thomas^ Ferrier, according to generally concurrent family 
traditions, was born in 1705, and came from Ireland (of which 
country it is believed he was a native, but of French Protestant 
parents) while yet a young man. It is told that the vessel by 
which he sailed was nine months out at sea and that the pas- 
sengers were for a long time placed on a scant allowance of 
food, and were threatened and in other way treated insolently. i- 

12 " Star^-ed and robbed bv the ship's master." See art. " Clintox," in 
Tohnson's Cyclopaedia. The Ferrier account adds that the passengers so 
far resisted the skipper's behavior as to choose Col. Clinton to conduct the 
vessel to port ; but the crew durst not obey his directions, lest thej- might 
be held guilty of mutiny and piracy. 



Thomas & Hester Ferrier. 7 

Extortion seems the half-piratical master's most probable objecft 
in this strange course. Col. Charles Clinton, (father of George 
and James, of Revolutionary fame, and grandfather of De Witt 
Clinton) sailed May 20, 1729, by the " George and Anne," from 
Ireland for Philadelphia. The incidents of his similarly pro- 
longed voyage (or cniise), as described in his carefully kept 
diary, (now in the State Library at Albany), so far coincide with 
the Ferrier story as to make it evident that Col. Clinton and 
Mr. Ferrier were fellow -passengers. It is known that some or 
several of Col. Clinton's relatives came with him, and there are 
Ferrier descendants who are convinced that their ancestor was 
one of these kinsmen. At last the sorely tried passengers were 
landed at Cape Cod. In 1731 Clinton removed to Little Brit- 
ain, then in Ulster, now in Orange Co., N. Y., and Mr. Ferrier 
to the same county. Thomas Ferrier married Hester Lucky 
before 1757, — perhaps several years earlier. The four children 
named below may have been the younger survivors of a larger 
family. ^Thomas died in Orange Co., April i, 1792. Hester 
is said by one tradition to have come from Holland ; (but, prob- 
ably, was not Dutch) ; by another, in no way consistent with 
this, she was a fellow-passenger with Thomas by the ' ' George 
and Anne, in 1729. In latter case she was then but a child of 
ten years or younger, brought with her parents or near kindred 
to fulfil a destiny then unimagined. The family name is not 
unknown in the Wyoming valley, for Moses Lucky witnessed a 
deed of gift from Benjamin Carpenter, of Kingston, Penn, to 
his son, James Carpenter, Jan'y 25, 1799. Hester's birth can 
not well be placed earlier than 1720. She died March 17, 1796. 
The order of children's birth is as yet not certainly known, but 
it is here assumed, provisionally, on fair inference from scanty 
evidence, to have been as follows : — 

2. Hester,2 married to Benjamin Carpenter. .3- l~lSi,_ i? 

3. Jane, married to Rev. Anning Owen. 

4. Robert, born Odt. 9, 1762 ; married Mary Wilcox, March 9, 1785. 

5. Sarah, born Aug. 17, 1767 ; married to David Perkins.

Hester2 Ferrier,_ {Thomas^), was evidently the eldest of the 
four known children of her parents, and by so many years as to 
remove suspicion of an omitted generation between them and

herself. She was married to Ben'JAmin Caupenter, who was 
born Jan'y 27, 1750; took part, in 1775, in the earliest move- 
ments of Orange county patriots, and his name, with that of 
Anning Owen, is found among the signatures to the " Revolu- 
tionary Association Pledge, "is He removed, not much later, to 
the Connedlicut settlement in the Wyoming country, and, with 
Anning Owen and Rogers Searle,!^ did each a soldier's duty in 
the battle of July 3, 1778, but escaped that wholesale murder 
which nearly depeopled the valley. He came again, with other 
survivors, to make more than good the waste wrought in a day 
of Seneca's vengeance and Tory's devilish hate ; and he at once 
found his place among the most useful and honored citizens of 
his county. In 1787 he was duly commissioned as justice of the 
peace, and in 1794 he represented Luzerne in the legislature of 
Pennsylvania. In his later years he removed again, (probably 
with most of his children), in 1807, to Sunbury. Delaware Co., 
Ohio, where he became an associate judge of one the county or 
district courts, and where he died Sept. 27, 1823. [From her 
granddaughter, Mrs. Van Fleet, it is learned (too late to recast 
this paragraph) that Mrs. Hester (Ferrier) Carpenter was 
'^ born March 11, 1852, and died on her eighty-fourth birthday, 
March 11, 1836.] The number of their children is not known, 
but information from Pennsylvania and Ohio discloses nine, as 
named below, their order not shown. A few of their descend- 
ants, it is said, yet live in Ohio. Children (Carpenter) : — 

James, married Elizabeth Hewitt, March i, 1798. [Capt. Dethick Hew- 
itt, her father, was killed or murdered at Wyoming, July 3-4, 1778.] 

Kitty, (or Catherine),^ married Dec. 6, 1797 to Jacob Bedford ; no child- 
ren known. 

Benjamin. 

Robert. A daughter, Mrs. Lucy Van Fleet, lives at Galena, Ohio. 

Charles. 

Mary, married to Rufus Carter. 

Christina, married to Thomas Perfedl. 



'■■' There seems ground for belief that a second Benjamin Carpenter, who 
signed the same paper, was our Benjamin's father ; and he have been he 
who married Prudence Kingsbury, July 1738. 

!■* Rogers Searle's descendant. Mrs. Katherine Searle Macartney, Wilkes- 
Barre, has studied well the annals of Wyoming Valley and the official and 
household records of its pioneer families. To her resourcefulness much 
matter of historic interest and genealogical value, in these pages, is due.

6. Elizabeth, married Feb. 14, 1802 to I,azarus Denison. 

7. Sarah, married in 1812 to John S. Brown.

Jane;^ Ferrier. {Thomas^), was married to Anning Owen, 
probably at her father's home. She was well endowed, as it is 
told, with whatever qualities of mind and charadler, added to 
wholesome instrtidlion and influences of her earlier home-life, 
would best fit her to meet the duties and privations which must 
have made up in large part the sum of her career as a pioneer 
clerg3anan's wife. Mr. Owen was born in New York, (perhaps 
in Orange Co.), in 1751. He is said to have been of an early- 
coming New England family, as is not unlikely. In 1775 he, 
with Gershom, John, and Jonathan Owen, signed the patriotic 
Pledge. Before 1778 he had gone to the Wyoming country, 
where he built a house and blacksmith shop between Kingston 
and Forty Fort. He fotight well in the famous a(5lion, but with 
Carpenter and Searle escaped murder by hiding under a grape- 
vine, (drooping from a tree), on the bank of the river, near the 
moirth of Shoemaker's creek. They saw from their shelter the 
wretch, Windecker, kill Shoemaker, whose body floated down 
below them. Returning for a time to New York he became a 
Methodist, afterward was licensed to preach, and, going again 
to Wyoming, he led the first Methodist class at Rose Hill, in 
1788. In 1795 he became a travelling preacher, and his labors 
lay in several circuits of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, 
and Delaware. He was presiding elder of the Susquehanna dis- 
tridt, which, as understood, included the counties of Lycoming 
and Centre. His family, in all this time, had lived at Kingston, 
and partly self-supporting ; for Jane and her daughters knew 
well how to adjust their shoulders to the burdens of their time 
and circumstances, and had strength and will to sustain them 
patiently and cheerfully to the end. In 1810 he removed with 
his family to Ulysses, Tompkins Co., N. Y., where he died, ot a 
then prevailing epidemic, in April, 1814. Jane died twelve 
hours later. Daughters are known to have lived at least until 
young womanhood, but their names have not been learned. 

Benjamin, died early. 

Sarah, died early.

Robert- Ferrier, {Thomas^), was born Oct. 9, 1762; mar- 
ried Mary Wilcox, March 9, 1785 ; died in town of Warwick, 
Orange Co., Jan '3- 6, 1822. Mary was born Sept. 3, 1764 ; died 
at Dundee, Yates Co., N. Y., March 2, 1836. Robert's land 
lay in Warwick, between the villages of Amity and Edenville. 
He must have owned a considerable tract ; for, in later 3-ears, 
some of his children and grandchildren owned and occupied 
farms adjoining the old home-farm on either side. Children,

Sarah"^ Ferrier, {Tliomas"-^), born Aug. 17, 1767 ; married to 
David Perkixs ; died Januarj- i, 1845, "aged seven t^'-seven 
years and five months. " as reads her tombstone at Fort}' Fort. 
Luzerne Co., Penn.,— a harmless inaccurac}-. John Perkins^^ 
went from Plainfield, Windham Co., Conn., in 1769, to Wyo- 
ming valle\-i' among its earlier settlers, and there owned much 
land. He took with him his wife and sons John, Aaron, and 



i*" It is believed, but as yet not proved, that John Perkins's father was of 
Norwich, Conn., and was a great-grandson of John and Judith, who came 
from Gloucestershire to Boston in 1636. 

1" The Connecticut contention for jurisdicftion westward, through northern 
Pennsylvania and Ohio to the Pacific (which at first was thought not much 
beyond the great lakes) did not die out wholly until some years later than 
the Revolution. The Wj-oming country was then the town of Westmore- 
land, and was accounted, by its pioneers and also in Connecticut, a part of 
Litchfield county, and was represented in the legislature of the latter col- 
ony. Col Zebuion Butler, and other officers of Valley troops, were com- 
missioned by Gov. Jonathan Trumbull. 



David Perkins & Sarah Ferrier. 1 1 

David, — the last-named born Jan'y2dof that year. Having 
served in Capt. Spalding's company, under Washington, he had 
returned to share in the disaster of July 1778, in which his eld- 
est boy was killed ; but saved himself and the rest of his family 
from massacre, and went back, it is told, to Connedlicut. He 
soon returned, alone, and meeting a gang of Indian prowlers, he 
was murdered and scalped. His widow remained in Connecti- 
cut and was married to a Mr. Griswold. Aaron was a soldier, 
and in old age a pensioner. David also abode in Connecticut 
until about 1787, when he returned to the Valley, and chose for 
his guardian. Sept. 6th of that year, Benjamin Carpenter, who 
administered John Perkins's estate. The Orphan's Court of 
Luzerne county, March 6, 17S9, ordered sale of as much of this 
estate as was needful to pay debts and cost of administration. 
David seems to have become for some time an inmate of the 
Carpenter home, where he met Sarah Ferrier, then visiting 
her sister. Not much later, he journej^ed to the Ferrier home 
at Amity and brought back Sarah as his wife. He became 
in time the owner of a tracft of land six miles along the Sus- 
quehanna and one mile back to the mountains, — nearly four 
thousand acres. This land then included the site of the mon- 
ument which commemorates the tragedy of 1778. David Per- 
kins was a man of local influence and usefulness as well as of 
man}'' acres. He was a member of the first school-committee 
for the town of Westmoreland. For several years he held by 
executive appointment the then dignified as well as important 
post of justice of the peace. His second wife, with whom he 
lived but short time, was Mrs. Sarah Pettibone. He died Jan 'y 
8, 1854. Children (Perkins), in supposed order of birth : —

for show, but that a busy man miglit have books at his elbow for any in- 
stant's use or pleasure. But his letters were himself, not his books. His 
taste in reading was various enough, and his distastes were expressed as 
freely as the soul of candor could ask. He affected neither wit nor wis- 
dom, but his letters were boyish onlj' in their frankness, and to read them 
was to drive away blue devils. He bestowed his full, generous trust upon 
a stranger for the sake of a quarter-blood relationsliip subsisting. His 
genealogical interest was keen, and his quick intellecl and life-long busi- 
uess habit gave pecixliar value to his hearty, whole-handed or both-handed 
co-operation. The news of his illness was quickly followed by that of liis 
death, and brought to his newlj- found kinsman an unforecalculated atid 
abiding sense of personal loss. — a. C. b.

2SMost of the corrections of the " Latie-Griszrold" pamphlet, as to its 
Kelsej-sand Parmelees, were supplied by the late Miss Clara Louise Sands, 
of Meriden, Conn., who was of Bradley-Hull-Kelsey-Parmelee descent. 
Her search for record of the settlement of Lieut. John Kelsey's estate was 
long and trj-ing, but her triumph over needless obstacles was complete 
and compensating. Her death, in June 1902, was a sore loss to her gene- 
alogical correspondents, as well as to her family. Her valuable collection 
of books, pamphlets, and manuscripts are now the propertj* of the public 
library at Meriden,
