INTRODUCTION 

This work was begun many years since in an attempt by the author to 
trace the descent of his ancestor, the Rev. David Youngs, from the Rev. 
John Youngs, first minister of Southold, L. I. Later, this was enlarged to 
include all the male descendants of the Rev. John Youngs, and, still later, 
to its present scope. 

The early history of the family was shrouded in mystery, and it has 
required much study and extensive research in England and in this country 
to rescue it from tradition and oblivion. 

In Southold, L. I., a knowledge of their English ancestor and of the 
place in England from whence they came had utterly vanished. 

In 1844 there was published in the Long Island "Star," an article in 
which it was stated that there was "an immense amount of property in 
England to the family of Youngs in North America, according to record 
and history/' and that the "Rev. John Youngs came from Hingham, England, 
and had sons John, Thomas, Gideon, and Benjamin," etc. This statement 
reflects the belief of the family at that time, but the first part is without 
foundation, and the latter part is only partly correct. 

While this was true as to Southold, yet a knowledge of their English 
ancestor was preserved in the family of Seth Youngs, who had removed to 
Connecticut in 1736, and a record of it was made by his son, Calvin Youngs, 
in his Bible. (See p. 35.) 

Doubtless Bible family records were kept by the early generations, but 
none earlier than the fifth generation have come down to us. Prior to this 
we have in America three family records entered in town records, viz., Chris- 
topher Youngs, No. 6; Benjamin Youngs, No. 34, and Benjamin Youngs, 
No. 37. Abundant material of that period, however, has been found in 
church and town records, deeds, wills and cemetery inscriptions, to make a 
fairly complete and authentic record. 

Fortunately the author became interested in the family history at an 
early age, when there were members of the family living who were born before 
the Revolutionary War, and from them he learned much of the history and 
traditions of the family which otherwise would have perished with them. 

The line of English descent is determined by the coat-of-arms on the seal 
on the will of Col. John Youngs, known as the Tudor Trevor arms, and 
shows descent from him, through the Yonges of Brynyorken. 

The chapters on "Welsh Ancestry" and "Welsh Pedigrees" are introduced 



INTRODUCTION. vii 

to satisfy a natural curiosity regarding our Welsh ancestors. The Pedigrees 
are from the reports of the commissioners sent to Wales by Henry VII 
(Henry Tudor) , to etablish his own ancestry. 

For five generations the Youngs were leading men in Southold, Long 
Island. 

Rev. John Youngs was the "first settler," and the leading spirit of the 
town. His son, Col. John Youngs, was the most prominent man on Long 
Island, in the entire colonial period; and the latter's brother, Benjamin 
Youngs, was the town clerk and recorder. Both of them were patentees of 
the town. In the next generation Benjamin Youngs (son of Christopher) 
was captain of the militia company, town clerk, recorder, and judge. In 
the next generation Joshua Youngs was a judge and Rev. David Youngs was 
the first after Rev. John Youngs to enter the ministry. Thomas Youngs 
(son of Judge Joshua) was a judge and a member of the State Assembly. 

The Youngs commenced early to migrate from Southold, and for several 
generations there have been few of the name in Southold proper. They are 
numerous in Greenport and Orient, to the east, and at Aquebogue, Northville, 
Riverhead and other towns to the west; but the greater number are spread 
out over all the Union. 

Two noticeable characteristics of the family are sobriety and longevity. 
Many have lived to ninety years of age, several to more than ninety-five, and 
one (No. 102) to beyond her hundredth year; but their distinguishing trait 
is their strong religious feeling, which they inherited from their English 
ancestor. This has persisted through the generations and almost universally 
been the controlling influence in their lives, moulding their characters and 
making them peaceable, law-abiding citizens, many of whom have had a 
prominent part in the development and history of the country. 

"Golden Weddings" have been of frequent occurrence, and there are 
two instances (No. 665 and No. 898) of sixty-seven years of married life. 
The last survivor of the seventh generation was Mrs. Ezra Hallock, nee 
Lydia Emily Young, who died March 27th, 1898, at the age of ninety-five 
years. 

Either personally or by letters, the author has had many inquiries regard- 
ing the history of the family, and early times in Southold, and, believing that 
this information will not only be interesting, but foster an honorable pride 
in the family, he has given a brief historical outline under appropriate 
chapter headings. 

In collecting these records, many valued friendships have been made, 
and many kindly greetings received, which have been a constant help and 
inspiration. The author appreciates the willingness with which the members 
of the family have furnished their records, and he is under especial obliga- 
tions to Mrs. Cordelia Young Willard, Mrs. Elmira Young Tuthill, Mrs. 



viii INTRODUCTION. 

George Wilson Smith, Miss Harriet N". Youngs, Miss Sadie E. Rackett, Mr. 
Elijah Ford Young, deceased, and Mr. James F. Young, for the principal 
records for their branches, and to the last mentioned for valued assistance on 
indices. 

Through the kindness of Mr. J. Cummings Vail, he had access to the 
records collected in 1858 by his father, Mr. Alfred Vail, and Mr. Charles B. 
Moore placed at his disposal his MSS. Indexes of 1730 and 1775, and gave 
him other valuable information. 

To Mr. Charles II. Young, of New York, he is indebted for long con- 
tinued interest and assistance, and to Mr. E. F. C. Young, of Jersey City, N". J., 
for financial aid in its publication. 

In placing this work in possession of the family the author expresses the 
hope that it will find a welcome in their homes, and be handed down to future 
generations. 

Very sincerely yours, 

Selah Youngs., Je. 

New York, March 23, 1907. 



THE NAME AND NATIONALITY. 

La Jeune, Yonge, Yonges, Younges, Youngs, Young, Yong. 

The name has its origin in the youth of the first bearers of the name; 
and its French equivalent, "La Jeune," is a very common name in France. 

The Youngs appear to have been Norman French, and to have come 
over in the train of William the Conqueror, and settled in various parts of 
England and Wales. 

In the early English records we have the names, "William le Yonge," 
"John le Yonge/' "Eichard le Yonge" and "Kalph le Younge;"* and the 
Youngs of Kingerby, County Lincoln, had for their motto "To jours Jeune." "j" 

About the middle of the fourteenth century Ierwerth ap Morgan, a 
descendant of Tudor Trevor, of Wales, married "Margaret," daughter and 
heiress of William Yonge de Sawardek, County Salop, and took the name of 
Yonge for a surname. $ 

The Welsh and English pedigrees and coats of arms show the parties to 
this marriage to be the ancestors of Eev. Christopher Yonges, Vicar of South- 
wold and Eeydon, England, and therefore the family in the male line are 
Welsh, and are descended from Tudor Trevor, and the ancient rulers of Wales. 

In the pedigrees of the descendants of Ierwerth and "Marget Yonge" 
the name is spelled both "Yonge" and "Yong." 

The family records of Yicar Christopher Yonges in the parish register 
of Southwold, England, and the wills of himself and wife, show the name 
spelled, "Yong," "Yonge," "Yonges," "Younges" and "Youngs." 

In America the descendants of Vicar Yonges, for the first century, 
spelled the name "Youngs," "Younges," "Young" and "Yong." Since that 
time they have only spelled the name "Youngs" and "Young."

WELSH ANCESTRY. 

The Welsh came originally from Asia, and were of the Aryan family. 
They invaded Eastern Europe about 1500 B. C., and were termed by the 
Greeks Galatas, by the Eomans Galli or Celts (Celts or Kelts). They were 
driven westward, and settled in Spain, North Italy, France, Belgium, and 
the British Isle; and were the first civilized inhabitants of England and 
Wales. Before their superior arms and prowess the aborigines of the stone 
and flint ages disappeared. 

In the intervening centuries, prior to the Boman occupation, they spread 
over England and Wales, and Scotland as far north as the Firths of Forth 
and Clyde. It was between these Firths that the Eomans, about 80 A. D., 
erected the Boman wall, to defend Britain from the incursions of the Picts 
and Scots. 

The ancient name of this territory was Cambria (the land of the Cymri), 
and later the Eomans gave to it the name of Britain. 

The earliest records of the history of Britain are the manuscripts and 
poetry of the Cambrians, who were the ancestors of the Britons and modern 
Welsh. 

In the year 55 B. C, the Eomans, under Julius Caesar, invaded Britain, 
and, after being held at bay for eight years, conquered the Silures, a tribe 
inhabiting the Counties of Monmouth and Hereford. The renowned King 
Caracticus was captured, through treachery, by the Eoman general Astorius 
Scapulo, and taken in chains to Borne to grace the triumph of his captor. 

After holding Britain in subjection for over four hundred years, the 
Eomans, about 410 A. D., gradually retired. 

The leaving of the Eomans was followed by an attack on the Britons 
by the Picts and Scots. Vortigern, who was the sovereign of the Dimetae 
and overlord, or supreme ruler of Britain, invited the Saxons over to defend 
his country, but the Saxons perfidiously sent for reinforcements, consisting 
of Saxons, Danes, and Angles, and drove the Britons to the West of England 
and into Wales. 

At this time Gwyneth, or the Snowdon district (North Wales), was in 
possession of the Decangi, a Goidelic tribe; Powys, the extensive Berwin 
district, bordering on the West of England, was ruled by the Ordovices, a 
Brythonic tribe. In Dyved and Cardigan Por, the Plinlimmon district, 
lived the Demetia, a Goidelic tribe; and Morganweg and Gwent, the Black 
Mountain district, were the home of the dark Silures, who were a Goidelic 



WELSH ANCESTRY. 3 

tribe. These two kindred races, the Goidels, and Brythons, struggled bitterly 
against each other for the sovereignty over this territory. 

The Welshman's pedigree was his title deed, by which he claimed his 
birth-right in the country. Everyone was obliged to show his descent 
through nine generations in order to be acknowledged a free native, and by 
this he claimed his portion of land in the community. A person past the 
ninth descent formed a new head of a family; and every family was repre- 
sented by its elder, who was a delegate to the National Council. Among a 
people where surnames were not in use, a and where the right of property 
depended on descent, an attention to pedigree was indispensable; hence the 
second order of Bards, or Herald Bards, whose duty it was to register pedigrees 
and arms. Cynwrig ap (son of) Gronw, who lived about the year 145 A. D., 
was a Bard. 

It is from these ancient manuscripts, pedigrees, and coats of arms, and 
the family pedigrees taken by the County Visitations, that we learn some- 
what of the history of our Welsh ancestors, their line of descent and inter- 
marriage with the Youngs. 

By the use of a certain coat of arms one asserts one's descent from the 
person to whom those arms were granted, confirmed or allowed. Col. John 
Youngs, of the second generation in America, placed the Tudor Trevor coat 
upon his will in 1697.* 

The arms of Tudor Trevor are, "Per bend sinister Erm and Ermines a 
lion rampant or,"f and these as chief arms or quarterings have been borne 
by his descendants of various names for centuries. 

Tudor Trevor, Lord of Whittington, Oswestry and both Maelors in 
Powys, in right of his father; founder of the "Tribe of the Marches" ; b King 
of Gloster and Earl of Hereford in right of his mother; surnamed Trevor 
from the place of his birth, Co. Denbigh; son of Ynyr (Honorius) by 
Beyingar his wife; married Angaret (or Gladwin), daughter of Howell Dha. 

The ancestry of Tudor Trevor, and of his wife Angaret, as given in these 
ancient records, extend back through these lines of Welsh rulers to the time 
of the Boman supremacy. 

Tudor (Theodore) Trevor, on his father's side was descended from 
Fernvail, King of Gwent and Monmouth, whose son, Yortigern, was betrayed 
by the Saxons and driven into Wales, where he built a citadel in Carnarvon- 
shire, on the Snowdon Mountain. This mountain was held as sacred, and it 
was said that whoever slept upon it would wake inspired. 

a- Surnames came into use about the year 1000. 

b An appellation derived from the numerous families in the Marches of Wales. 

*Original will on file in Surrogate's Office, N. Y. tBurke's Genl. Armory. 



4 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

"When all was still 
On Snowdon's Hill 
Was heard a magic sound, 
'Twas Merlin's voice 
Made men rejoice 
And sent its echoes round." 

From Vortigern was descended Catel-Tigern-Lug, 450 A. D., and from 
his son Gwnfiew frych the line follows on down through under chieftains or 
Iarlls to Tudor Trevor. 

Bheingar, mother of Tudor Trevor, and daughter and heiress of Llud- 
docka, King of Gloster and Earl of Hereford, was descended from Carradawc 
(or Caradoc) Freichfras (him of the brawny arm), Earl of Hereford and 
King of Cornwall, 542 A. D., whose mother was Ysenne or St. Gwendolen, 
or Gwent, the beautiful niece of King Arthur. 

Sir Caradoc was a Knight of King Arthur's Eound Table; and his wife 
Tegan Euervron (Tegan of the golden breast), daughter of the King of 
Cornwall, was one of the three fairest women of King Arthur's Court, and 
was the lady who gained the horn and mantle, as the prize of her chastity, 
because she could drink from the one and wear the other. 

"Sir Caradoc called his lady, 

And bade her to come neare 

* * * * 

When she had tane the mantle 

And put it on her back, 

Most rich and fair of collor, 

Like gold it glittering shone, 

And much the Knights in Arthur's Court 

Admired her everyone." 

Side by side with these lines was that of Cunnedda and his descendants, 
the ancestors of Tudor Trevor's wife Angharet. 

Cunnedda, King of Cumbria, Strathclyde and part of Wales, was the son 
of the Eoman Aeternus (Edern), who married a Brython, Gwawl, the daugh- 
ter of Coel Coedhbawg, the King of Coelin, since called Kyle in the present 
county of Ayr, Scotland. This Coel is the old King Cole of tradition. 

Aeternus was the son of Paternus (Padern) Bisrud, Bisrud meaning 
him of the red tunic, as he had worn the official purple, and was Dux Bri- 
tannia? in command of the forces on the Wall. 

Cunnedda was also in command on the Wall, but, after the Bomans left, 
was driven south by the Saxons and Danes into Wales, where he made 
Deganwy his chief seat of power. 

From him was descended a long line of rulers, who maintained his 
power for nine centuries, through Malgwan, Cadwallon, Cadwaladr, Phodri, 



WELSH ANCESTRY 5 

Molywnog, Khodri the Great, Howell Dha, etc., until it fell in the person of 
Llewelyn III, Dec. 11, 1282. 

However much of fable is interwoven in these Welsh Triads, or to what 
extent these pedigrees are fiction, is of but little importance, but it is of 
value that, through centuries of toil and strife, they laid the foundations on 
which the progress of civilization has been made. 

Tudor Trevor's chief seat was Whittington Castle, of which he is said to 
be the founder. He died in 948. 

It was not until some generations later that his descendants adopted sur- 
names. 

Of these, Thomas, in the time of Henry VIII, took the name of Mostyn 
(Moisten), from the place of his birth.* 

Edward, who married Ankeret, daughter of Kobert Puleston, had a son 
John, who took the name of Trevor. He was seated at Brynkenalt, and died 
in 1494.* 

This family, it is claimed, was the last to occupy Dinas Bran, the ancient 
residence of the Lords of Powys, and perhaps the most proudly perched 
castle in Britain. A few fagots kindled on its lonely heights in a trice would 
have all Powys and half of Shropshire in arms. 

From Tudor Trevor's son, Dyngod, through Ednyfed Vychan, was 
descended Owen, who married Catherine of Valois, widow of Henry V, and 
took the name of Tudor for a surname. 

Their grandson, Henry Tudor, a Welshman, leading a Welsh army, 
defeated and slew Bichard III, on Bosworth Field, and became Henry VII. 

In him was fulfilled the prophecy that- a Welshman was to become King 
of England, which had failed in Llewyln and Owen Grlendower. 

From Tudor Trevor's son, Lluddocka, was descended (eleven generations 
removed) Ierwerth ap Morgan, who, about the middle of the fourteenth 
century, married Marget, daughter and heiress (only child) of William 
Yonge de Sawardekf (Willi le Yonge de Shira warden Co. Sal op), $ and 
took the name of Yonge for a surname. 

Heraldry was borrowed by the Welsh from the Normans, after 1066 A.D., 
and they proceeded to adopt coats of arms, which they assigned to their 
most illustrious ancestors, and bore themselves. 

Of these arms, the descendants of Tudor Trevor are entitled to bear, 
either as chief arms or quarterings, the "lion rampant" coat of Caradoc 
Vreichfras and Tudor Trevor ;§ the "three nags heads" coat of Brochwel 
Ysgathrog; the "three roses" coat of Cunnedda|| and of Bhodri Mawr;§ the 
"three lions passant" coat of Howel Dda;§ and several others.

6 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

In America three coats of arms have been borne by the Youngs. 

The seal affixed to the will of Col. John Youngs, in 1697., bears the "lion 
rampant" coat. Crest : A grayhound passant. a 

The Oyster Bay branch bear the "three griffins heads" coat. Crest: A 
griffin's head erased, within a chaplet vert. 

On the monuments in the old cemetery at Providence, E. I., to Gideon, 
the son (d. 1738), and Alice, the wife (d. 1749) of Archibald Young, are 
carved the three roses coat, and the crest, A wolf passant. It is not known 
who this Archibald Young was the son of or what became of him. His wife 
was the daughter of Col. Joseph Whipple.* 

a A casting, taken by the author, from this seal was submitted by Mrs. George 
Wilson Smith to Mr. Thomas Moring, genealogist of London, and pronounced by 
him to be the Tudor Trevor arms.

BY THE NAME OF YONGE. 

Of this Ierwerth and Yonge marriage, we have the name of only one 
son, Morgan Yonge, and of him only one son, Jenkin Yonge, who had sons 
Lewys Yonge and Morrys Yonge.* 

Morgan Yonge accompanied John of Gaunt to Spain, and was granted 
lands for having taken prisoner a Spanish grandee of great note, whose arms, 
"gu, a torse, or/ 5 he was permitted to bear in augmentation of his own arms.f 

In 1389, Morgan Yonge, Owen Glendore (the Welsh hero), John de 
Hanmer, and others, testified in the celebrated Grosvenor vs. Scrope heraldic 
controversy.! 

There were other sons in these first three generations. Jenkin Yonge 
had a son Gwilim (William) Yong, whose descendants settled in Pembroke- 
shire, County Devon, and bore the Tudor Trevor coat.§ 

Dr. Gruffydd (Gruffyth or Griffeth) Yong, Archdeacon of Merioneth, 
an ecclesiastic, was probably a son of Ierwerth or of Morgan Yonge. He 
affiliated with, and in 1404, at Dolgelly, became the Chancellor of Owen 
Glendore, 1 1 who was also of the great border race of Tudor Trevor. 

John Young, alias Morgan, a Welshman, Dean of Windsor in 1484, 
Bishop of St. David's, Devon, 1496 to 1505, seems to be of this family. 
His will, April 24, 1504; proved May 19, 1504; might give valuable infor- 
mation.f 

The descendants of the brothers, Lewys and Morrys Yonge, are partially 
given through five generations. Lewys had a son Griffeth, who had a son 
John Yonge de Hanmer, who married Elizabeth, daughter of Bandal 
Dymock.* 

Morrys Yonge was seated at Brynyorkin in Hopedale, County Flint, and 
his arms are recorded as follows: "Yong, (Morris Yong ap Janken, ap 
Morgan, ap Yerw (Ierwerth), descended from Tudor Trevor, who was Earl 
of Hereford in right of his mother), Per bend sinister Erm and Ermines, a 
lion rampant or."** The Brynyorkin Yonges also bore on their shield the arms 
of Elidr ap Bys Sais, Brochmail Ysgathrog, Yong, Sandd Hardd and Phillip 
Byrd.*

BY THE NAME OF YONGE. 11 

Morris Yong's son Eichard, in the reign of Henry VII, had lands given 
him in Maelor, and had a son, Edward, who succeeded to the entailed estates 
at Brynyorkin.* This Edward Yong was the father of Ellis Yong, of 
Hoped ale, whose eldest son, Sir Eichard Yonge, was gentleman of the bed- 
chamber to King James I. The line of inheritance was in this branch, and 
they bore the Tudor Trevor arms, and had for their motto "Toujours jeune."f 

Henry, a younger son of Morris Yonge, was seated at Poulton com 
Seacomb, County Chester, and his grandson, "Henry Yonge gent," bore the 
Tudor Trevor arms, differenced ("Per pale Erm and Ermines, a lion ramp 
or"), which was confirmed to him, June 10th, 16254 

From Lewys or Morris Yonge are descended the Yonges who bear the 
three griffins heads arms, which was granted to them in 1583. § (The Poole 
House family quarter these arms with the three roses arms, and also have the 
"wolf passant sable" crest of the Yonges of Moore and Kenton.) || A dis- 
tinguished branch of this line settled in Colyton, Devon.fl 

The Yonges of Moore and Kenton, Shropshire County Salop (which 
was the seat of power of the Tudor Trevor sept before they were driven into 
Wales), bore the three roses coat, and had the "wolf passant sable" crest. 
These arms antedated the time of granting arms, and are the arms assigned 
to Cunnedda** and Ehodri Mawr,** who were the ancestors of Tudor Trevor's 
wife Angharet, and indicates the line of descent, through Tudor Trevor. 

Galfridus (Godfrey or Jeffrey) Yonge, the progenitor of this branch, 
was, doubtless, a son of Ierwerth or Morgan Yonge, and in the eighth gen- 
eration of his pedigree we have the name of Willimus Yonge of Kenton, 
Sheriff in 1548 and living in 1584; and of his brother, Georgius Yonge, 
seated at Ashburton, Devon, and having sons Christopher Yonge, Thomas 
Yonge (married and having a family), and Willimus Yonge. ff 

Additions were made to this pedigree by the visitations of 1623, but, at 
the point where the record of George Yonge should continue, a leaf has been 
cut out in the Shrewsbury M. S., which, no doubt, contained George Yonge 
and his descendants, as well as the arms and quarterings.ff 

The will of George Yonge was proved in 15554! 

This Christopher, son of George Yonge, is doubtless the "Christopher 
Younge, Master of Arts," who was "instituted Vicar of Ashburton, Devon, 
Jan. 22, 1566-7,"§§ and also, "instituted Vicar of Ermington, Devon, 
April 17, 1572,"§§ He held these appointments until his death in 
1577,§§ and his will was proved in that year.JJ

12 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

A Christopher Younge was elected Chaplain of Windsor, March 6, 
1567-8, on the resignation of John Hood.* Either he or another Christopher 
Younge's was Vicar of Brotherton, Yorks, in 1573,f and one of these Chris- 
topher Younge's took degrees at Oxford, in 1563-4 and 1566. t 

These appointments may have been obtained through the influence of 
Thomas Young, Archbishop of York, who, in the reign of Mary, fled to 
Germany, but returned when Elizabeth became Queen, and by her was made 
Bishop of St. David's, in 1559, and Archbishop of York, and President of 
the Queen's Council for the north part of England in 15604 He married 
Jane, daughter of Thomas Kenaston, of Shropshire, and died in 1568.$ 

Christopher Yonges, Vicar of Southwold, 1611-1626 (our last English 
ancestor), could have been the son of Christopher Younge, Vicar of Ash- 
burton and Ermington, and it is possible that he may have been the Chaplain 
at Windsor, or the Vicar of Brotherton, Yorks. Although we cannot 
identify his immediate ancestor, still the arms borne by his grandson, 
Col. John Youngs (see p. 50) is proof that his line of descent is through 
Tudor Trevor and the Yonges of Brynyorken. 

In 1633, Henry Yonge, of the Brynyorken family (see p. 11) living 
at Poulton, near Liverpool, gave the name of his wife's father as Bobert 
Gill (see p. 9). Strangely enough, we find the Be v. John Youngs, at 
Salem, Mass., in 1640, having an apprentice boy named Bobert Gell (see 
p. 17). (Gill and Gell are the same family name, and have the same deriva- 
tion and meaning.) 

The inference is that this boy belonged to the Gill family of Poulton, 
and that when Capt. Joseph Youngs made a voyage to England, in 1638, he 
visited his relatives there, and, on his return, young Bobert Gell came with 
him to America. 

a The will of Christopher Home of Aylesham, yeoman, 4 March, 1602; proved 
21 April, 1603, names nephew Christopher Yonges of Colby the elder, Christopher, 
John and William Yonges sons of my nephew Christopher Yonges, wife of Emma 
Home — sister Johan Yonges. (N. E. Gen., and Hist, Rec, Apl., 1898.) This 
Christopher Yonges the elder has been taken to be the father of Vicar Christopher 
Yonges of Southwold. As nephew of Christopher Home it is quite improbable that 
he was old enough to have been the father of Vicar Youngs, and it is shown to have 
been impossible by the Lincolnshire Pedigrees, which gives that family as follows: 
"Christopher Young of Keadby in Isle of Axholme, living 9 Jany., 1597/8; called 
senior in 1610." his son, "Christopher Young of Kelby, called junior 17 June 1610; 
a disclaimer 1634"; and having a son "William Young of Kelby." Our Vicar 
Yonges had been dead six years before this latter date. ( (Harlein Soc, LII, p. 1127.)

Facsimile of Handwriting and Signature of Rev. Christopher Younges from Parish Register. 



LEAVING ENGLAND. 

The people of Suffolk County were strictly non-conformist; and under 
Charles I and Archbishop Laud, the Catholic forms and ceremonies had been 
restored in the churches, and pastimes and recreations after service revived, 
as had been the custom before the Keformation.* 

On Puritanism war was made without mercy ; ministers were deprived of 
their benefices, or were fleeing the country. 

Laud was furious and undertook through the High Commission to pre- 
vent their escape and subdue them.* 

The situation was intolerable. Capt. Joseph Yonges was master of the 
ship Love, and, in July, 1635, his sister Mary and her husband, William Brown, 
giving their ages as 26 years, took passage for New England.f With them 
probably went Christopher Yongs and his wife Priscilla. 

Martha Youngs and her husband, Thomas Moore, also left England 
about this time. 

Two years later, on the 11th or 12th of May, 1637, Eev. John Yonge 
made the following application for permission to take passage on the Mary 
Anne, of Yarmouth, William Goose (or Gooch), master. 

"This man was f The examination of John: Yonges of St. Margretts: 
forbyden pas- j Suff/ Minister aged 35 years, and Joan: his wife/

rs ~{ 
Commission " j Anne: Rachel: Marey: and/Josueph: as desirous, 

and went not | to passe fo Salem: in New England to inhabit 



from Yarmouth. (_ / 



"i 



This order by the High Commissioners did not prevent, or even seem to 
delay his leaving. The passenger list of the Mary Anne included sixty-two 
persons for Salem, and eleven for Holland ;f and, disregarding the order, he 
promptly left England, and doubtless crossed the Atlantic on this vessel, 
either from Yarmouth or Holland, and in less than three months was in 
Salem, Mass.§ 

The "St. Margretts: Suff" (oik), of which he was minister, was doubtless 
the church at Eeydon, dedicated to St. Margaret.

AT SALEM, MASS. 

All the children of Eev. Christopher Yonges, except Margaret (who is 
not accounted for), came to Salem. 

Mary and her husband, William Brown, came in the "Love," and with 
them probably was her brother Christopher Young and his wife Priscilla, 
for both of these men were received as inhabitants, and granted land in Salem 
in February, 1636.* Mary Brown died the year after arrival.f 

Christopher Yonge was granted other lands there in 1637, 1638, 1642, 
and 1644,* after which he removed to Wenham, Mass., where he died in 1647. 
His only son, Christopher, was taken to Southold, L. L, and remained there. 

Martha and her husband, Thomas Moore, were there in July, 1636, at 
which time he was granted land. 

Eev. John Youngs, who engaged passage on the Mary Anne, on May 11, 
or 12, 1637, in less than three months had arrived in Salem, and on August 
14, 1637, he was received as an inhabitant and granted land there. a On the 
same day, Samuel Greenfield, who was a passenger on the Mary Anne, was 
also granted land, J indicating that they came on the same vessel. 

On Christmas day of that year (1637), the town made an allotment of 
meadow lots, and "Mr. Yong," described as having eight persons in his family 
(the same number as given in his application to emigrate), received one acre.! 

December 21, 1639, the town granted him fifty acres of land, on condition 
that he "continue in the Plantation to use the same."§ 

On May 31, 1640, Eobert Gell, "an apprentiss boy unto Mr. John Yongs," 
was brought before the court, tried and sentenced to be whipped for house- 
breaking and stealing on the Lord's day.|| This is the last record of Eev. 
John Youngs in Salem, and soon afterward he appeared in Southold, L. I. 

Capt. Joseph Young was received as an inhabitant in 1638 and granted 
lands,^[ but some years later, he, with Thomas Moore and their families, fol- 
lowed Eev. John Youngs to Southold. 

The grants of land at Salem were for home lots, agriculture and half- 
acre lots at Winter Harbor for the curing of fish, which was a very important 
article of food at that time.

THE FOUNDING OF SOUTHOLD, L. I. 

The Eev. John Youngs in the inscription on his tomb is accredited 
with being the "First Settler Of The Church Of Christ In Southhold." There 
is no evidence that any one came with him, although it is thought that 
Matthias Corwin, who was from Ipswich, Mass., may have, but most of the 
early settlers are known to have been elsewhere for two or more years later.* 

On his arrival, Lyon Gardner was on Gardner's Island, but the only 
white settlers on that fork of Long Island were Matthew Sinderland, at 
Hashamommock, and Richard Jackson adjoining him on the East, having 
a deed from James Farrett bearing date of August 15, 1640.f 

At that time New England was over-supplied with ministers and teachers 
who had fled from religious persecution in England, and, as the Rev. John 
Youngs was without a charge, he left Salem and became the pioneer and 
founder of Southold. 

He probably came via New Haven, Conn., with arrangements made for 
others to follow, but this is not a matter of record. The town was first 
known by the Indian name "Yennycock" (meaning extended country), and 
this it retained until about 1649, when it was re-named "Southhold."! The 
county was named "Suffolk," and the Long Island Sound was known as the 
"North Sea" until after the Revolution. 

The first date in connection with the settlement is given by Trumball, 
who states that Mr. Youngs organized a church there on Oct. 21, 1640; and 
that the planters united themselves with New Haven. § 

It is claimed that this date is an error, and should be 1641, as the date 
of James Farrett' s mortgage of Long Island to New Haven is July 29, 1641, || 
and that, therefore, the settlement could not have been made prior to that date. 
Evidently we have not all the facts. 

Farrett never took up the mortgage, and New Haven held the title until 
Southold bought it in 1649; and 1658.1 

Long Island east of Wading River, together with Shelter and Robins 
Islands, was in possession of four tribes of Indians, the Sachems of which 
were brothers; and some of the earliest Indian deeds are signed by all of 
them.

THE FOUNDING OF SOUTHOLD, L. I. 



19 




The Shinnecock tribe was on the south 
side, extending east to . Easthampton, and 
from thence to Montauk Point the Montauk 
tribe held sway. On Shelter Island was the 
Manhansett tribe, whose Sachem, Yengcoe, 
was recognized as the head chief. After his 
death, Wyandance, Sachem of the Montauks, 
was chief. 

The country on the north side, or fork, 
from "Wading Kiver to Orient Point, was the 
territory of the Corchaug tribe, of which 
Mommowetah was the Sachem. 
% V^i^llP'/ These Indians were friendly to the 

I/' r ,»' whites, but used tame wolves as dogs, which 

Stephen tankhouse* were troublesome to the settlers. 

This part of the island abounded in shells and was the great manufactory 
for wampum, which was made from them. Prior to the Pequot War, in 1637, 
they paid tribute to that tribe, but they crossed the Sound and assisted the 
whites in exterminating the Pequots, and afterwards were taken under the 
protection of the United Colonies of New England, and paid them tribute in 
wampum, which was used as money. 

The country was but sparcely wooded, owing to the Indians' custom of 
burning to increase the feed for deer. 

The Corchaug tribe was not a large one, probably numbering three hun- 
dred in all, and their only village mentioned was "Five Wigwams," at Pipes 
Neck,* near modern Greenport. In after years many of them became ser- 
vants or slaves to the whites, and they disappeared entirely years since. 

The settlement was delightfully located at the head of a broad stream of 
water (Town Creek), putting in from Peconic Bay, a half mile to the south, 
and affording a fine harbor for their vessels. On its shore they had their ship 
yard and warehouse. 

The location was attractive and quickly drew others from various parts of 
New England. The plan of the town was simply, Town street, running 
east and west, intersected by a road running north from Town Creek to the 



a Stephen Tankhouse, or Pharaoh, who died about 1875, was the last pure 
blood Sachem of the Montauk tribe. He was an ideal Indian, tall, lithe, quick and 
light of foot, with a low musical voice. He was descended from Wyandauch, 
through his daughter Askickotautup, the wife of Poniute. It was the boyhood 
delight of the author, more than fifty years ago, to see this tribe of Indians afoot 
and on horseback in procession annually come marching through Hampton Street 
into Sag Harbor.

20 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Long Island Sound. Here they laid out their home lots of from four to 
seven acres each, and the outlying country was laid out, from time to time, in 
large tracts or "dividents," and granted to the settlers. 

On these home lots their first homes were built of logs, with small 
windows covered with oiled paper and roofed with creek thatch. As a pro- 
tection against fire each householder was required to have "a ladder sufficient 
to reach the topp" of his house "under penalty of 5s."* 

Pastor Young's home lot was the largest, and was located on the south- 
west corner of the street and highway, and extended to the Creek, which it 
overlooked. It is the first entry in their book of records (which was not 
begun until some years after their arrival), as follows: 

"Anno Domini 1651. 
Impris — The Reverend Mr. John Youngs, Pastor of the Church of Christ in 
Southold aforesaid his home lot with the meadow thereunto adjoining Containing 
by estimation seven acres more or less, bounded on the East with the highway 
leading to the head of the Creek — On the West wth the whome lot of Robert 
Akerly."f 

A meeting house was doubtless built in the early days of the settlement, 
and it must have looked more like a fortress than a church. It was also 
used for holding town meetings and as a court room, and was located within 
the bounds of the cemetery, where a monument now stands to mark the site. 
In 1684 it was appraised at £35, by Samuel Youngs and Thomas Clarke, 
carpenters, and turned into a county prison. X 

The first reference to Southold in the New Haven records is the follow- 
ing appointment made by the Court there, on April 6, 1642 : 

"John Touttle of Yennycok, deputed by the Court to be Constable to order the 
affayers of that plantation the time being till some further course be taken by 
this Court for the settling of a Magistrate accorging to God."§ 

The constable was the chief executive officer and, together with the over- 
seers (who were elected by the town), conducted the town affairs. || Magis- 
trates were appointed later, and "fence viewers," and "tellers of cattle" were 
elected or appointed. Any person elected to office refusing to serve was 
subject to a fine of s. 40. 

The General Court at New Haven, on Oct. 27, 1643, adopted a Con- 
stitution, the first article of which provided that in no one of the plantations 
under their jurisdiction should any but members of approved churches be 
free burgesses, or hold any power or trust in the ordering of civil affairs,T[

and this required even the drummer of the Militia Company to be a church 
member, although this was winked at in one instance in Southold.* 

This law was for self-preservation, and a necessity of the times, as the 
control of civil affairs by anti-puritans would have resulted in the loss of 
that religious liberty which they had left England to gain. 

A militia company was soon formed, of which John Budd a was lieutenant, 
and Barnabas Wines, corporal, and was composed of all the males from the 
age of sixteen to sixty years, as required by an article of the United Colonies, 
adopted May 19, 1643.f 

Later eight pikes were added for Southold with "a partison for their 
Lieutenant, cullors for their Ensigns, halberts for their sergants and drumms 
fit for service.''^ 

The drum served another purpose ; it called the people to church services, 
and one fourth of the men were required to bring their arms, loaded and ready 
for use, every Lord's Day; and such as could come, on Lecture Day. Their 
arms were placed in racks near the door, while a sentinel, with lighted match, 
kept guard outside during service. § 

The body of men who gathered around Pastor Young's would have been 
a notable one anywhere, and while they mainly followed agriculture, several 
were vessel owners and mariners, most of the trades were represented, and 
some of the professions. 

Among the first to arrive were Matthias Curwin (Corwin), John Tuthill, 
Thomas Stevenson, Bobert Akerly, Barnabas Horton, John Budd, a Abraham 
Whithear, Thomas and Bichard Terry, and later came William Wells, James 
Haynes, William Salmon, Capt. John Underhill, Thomas Moore, Capt. Joseph 
Youngs, and many others. 

The Secretary of the Dutch Governor of New York, in 1650, reported 
that "Southold contained about thirty houses," and this is the earliest picture 
we have of the town.|| 

With the family of Capt. Joseph Youngs, who came in 1649, was his 
nephew, the son of his brother Christopher Young, late of Wenham, Mass., 
deceased, who was thereafter known in Southold as Christopher Youngs, Jr., 
he being a year or two younger than the son of Bev. John Youngs of the 
same name. 

All the descendants of Vicar Christopher Yonges were now in Southold, 
unless it was the daughters of Christopher Youngs, of Wenham, Mass. 

a In Oct., 1644, in the Southampton Records, he is called "John Budd of 
Yeanacock."

22 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Capt. Joseph Youngs was then master of the "Mary and Margaret/' 
and engaged in making trading voyages to the Barbadoes, and probably had 
the two oldest sons of his brother (Eev. John) on the vessel with him. He 
was a very able man, and when he died in 1657-8, he probably had the most 
valuable estate in Southold. 

From 1653, times were strenuous in Southold. In that year Cromwell 
was at war with Holland, and desired the New England Colonies to attack and 
capture New York from the Dutch, but, by the time they were ready to move, 
peace was declared.* 

In the meantime Capt. John Youngs (son of Eev. John), of his own 
volition, visited several towns in Connecticut, in his "barke," planning to 
raise volunteers to go against the Dutch, but without results.'}" 

Eeturning to Southold he found the train band paralyzed because (Lieut. 
Budd having gone to England) there was no church member competent to 
command it. 

Charles Glover, who was a member of the church at Salem, had exercised 
the company, but there seems to have been opposition to him because he was 
not a member of the church at Southold, so he declined to train it any longer. 

Capt. Youngs was young and rash, and criticised matters in general, and 
New Haven in particular. Mr. William Wells, a lawyer and deputy from 
Southold, made complaint against Youngs to the court at New Haven, which 
was entertained, but, on inquiry, the court learned that he had gone to New 
York to trade, and that his vessel had been seized by the Dutch, who had im- 
prisoned him on the ship King Solomon, and had taken his leathern bag, 
containing, by official inventory, "comb, towel, pins, flints, shoe strings, 
gloves, tobacco, paper (580) guilders, and wampum."! 

The court propounded that if a bond be given and a letter received from 
his father soliciting their aid, that they would write to the Dutch asking that 
he be sent to New Haven. 

The bond was given, and later a letter was received from Pastor Youngs, 
stating that "himself and the town desire his son's release." § 

In the meantime, Capt. Youngs escaped from the Dutch with his vessel, 
but his friends, Isaac Allerton and others, were willing to be his bail, so he 
returned, gave bail and was released. In May, 1654, he appeared before 
the Court at New Haven, acknowledged his foolish words and actions, was 
admonished, and released under bail of £100. 

It was a beer-drinking age, and the Court at this time (1654) granted 
the following license:

THE FOUNDING OF SOUTHOLD, L. I. 23 

"John, Peakin hath lysence from this Court to sell strong water at Southold 
pvided that he attend the orders of the jurisdiction in that case, both to English 
and Indians."* 

In 1654 Southold and New England were in constant fear of an attack 
by the Naragansetts and other Indians. Orders were issued that in each 
plantation horses should be kept ready for the quick dispatch of messengers, 
that the militia should train each week, and that watch and ward be set 
night and day. Messages were sent to Ninegret Sagamore of the Narragan- 
setts, and Uncas, of the Pequot Indians, notifying them to desist from their 
"murderous intentions." 

Capt. John Youngs, who was now in favor, was commissioned by the 
United Colonies, with his barke and men, and authorized to take on twelye 
other men, fully armed, to cruise in the Long Island Sound and prevent the 
landing of any Indians on Long Island, and this he did for two years. f 

This constant vigilance did not cease until after King Philip's War, 
1675-7, and was quite a strain on those in Southold who were growing old 
in years and service. In their town records we read that in 1674, "Deacon 
Barnabas Wines (corporal of the Militia Co. thirty years before) and Eichard 
Benjamin, Sen., are freed from training whatching and warding."! 

They had another trouble, which was the Quakers (who were characterized 
by New Haven as "a cursed Sect of hereticks"). Several of the settlers at 
Southold joined them, and John Budd was fined for harboring them. It is 
true that a few were violent and abusive, and such an one doubtless was 
Humphry Norton, who, having been banished from Plymouth, went to South- 
old, from whence, in March, 1658, he was sent a prisoner to New Haven, 
charged, among other things, with having "greviously and in manifold wise 
traduced, slandered, and reproached Mr. Youngs, pastor of the church at 
Southold, in his good name and the honnour due him for his workes sake to 
gether with his ministrie and all our ministries and ordinances."§ 

In 1649 and 1658, either by agreement or purchase, Southold obtained 
from New Haven title (which it held both from Farrett and by Indian deeds) 
to all lands east of Wading BiverJ except Hashamommock, which latter, in 
1657, cast its lot in with Southold. § 

There is no record of the original Indian deed for Southold. William 
Salmon, who married Katherine, the widow of Matthew Sinderland, on 
February 24, 1645, obtained from the Corchang Sachem Paukhamp and his 
son Ambuscow, a deed for Hashamommock.^ Salmon died, and the widow

24 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Katherine married John Concklyne (Conklin), who obtained a more com- 
prehensive deed from the same Indians on Feb. 20, 1660.* 

On May 16, 1648, New Haven obtained a deed from "Mammawetough, 
Sachem of Corchauge, of the land from Hashamommock to Plumb Gut,f and 
this included the original Jackson tract. 

To the west of Southold lay Corchaug, Mattituck and Occabauk. There 
seems to have been two deeds covering this territory, one from the Corchaug 
family of Sachems, on March 14, 1648,| to New Haven, and another about 
the same time to Eobert Woodhull and William Wells, from the four Sachems 
of Shelter Island, Meantalcut, Shinnecock and Corchaug.§ Southold reim- 
bursed them and took the title. § 

In 1660, Capt. John Youngs was a leading man at Southold, and was, 
with William Wells, a deputy to New Haven and a magistrate. || 

In 1662, the Colony of Connecticut obtained a more liberal charter and 
a majority of the freemen of Southold (thirty-two in number, including 
Joseph Youngs, Gidion Youngs, and Joseph Youngs, Jun'r), signed an ap- 
pointment of Capt. John Youngs as deputy, which he presented at Hartford, 
Oct. 9, 1662, and they were taken under its protection. *j[ 

The Colony of Connecticut desired to obtain possession of all Long 
Island under its new patent, and, by its direction, Capt. John Youngs, in a 
letter dated Hempstead, October 27th, 1662, gave notice that all the towns 
on Long Island were under the jurisdiction of Connecticut.^ The following 
year it appointed Capt. John Scott, together with Mr. Willys, Capt. Talcott, 
Mr. Eichards, and Capt. John Youngs to dispossess the Dutch of the five 
towns at the westerly end of the island. 

With a few men, furnished by Conecticut, Scott crossed to the east end 
of Long Island, and, with the Southold Militia and troop of horse under 
Capt. John Youngs, marched to the Dutch towns, and, in December and 
January, 1663-4, were at Flushing, Brooklyn Ferry, and other places, making 
proclamations, and sending letters to Gov. Stuyvesant. 

The Dutch Eecords describe them as riding into the village of Widwout 
"with 60 or 70 horsemen, and as many foot, with colors flying, drums beating 
and trumpets sounding."** Scott attempted to usurp the government of 
Long Island for himself, and was arrested and imprisoned. 

Capt. Youngs' ability was recognized at Hartford, and on May 12, 1664, 
he was elected an assistant to Gov. John Winthrop (member of. his council), 
and was afterward re-elected several times, ft

THE FOUNDING OF SOUTHOLD, L. I. 25 

Later in that year (1664) Capt. Youngs was again in the field with 
the Southold force to aid the English fleet in capturing New York; and 
on August 29th, 1664, two days after the surrender, Gov. Nichols wrote him 
as follows: 

"You are by these prsents required to take an exact list of ye Names of those 
of Long Island, who have taken upp Arms under your Command for their King and 
Country with ye places of their usual dwelling, and deliver them in a Roll to me. 
To this end and purpose, that I may hereafter upon all occasions, and in the first 
place he ready to gratifie those who have so eminently expressed their affections. 
2dly. That those Arms may still remain in the same hands, for the service of the 
King and Country, And that ye officers upon any suddaine occasion may know 
whether to send to Assemble the same men againe, who are to repaire to their 
colors in such Cases unless the Deputies of the several Towns shall otherwise Agree 
upon the better ordering of the Militia of this Island for the future wch. Deputies 
shall in Convenient time and place be summoned to propose and give advice in all 
matters tending to ye peace and benefit of Long Island. I shall desire you will im- 
part this Letter to all your friends and Neighbors wch. is all at prsent from 

Your assured ffriend 

Richd Nicolls.* 

N Yorke Aug 29th 
1664." 

The calling for these names was a mark of signal honor and appreciation, 
and it is a matter of deep regret that this list has not been preserved. In it 
doubtless were the names of the sons of Eev. John and Capt. Joseph Youngs, 
viz: 

Capt. John Youngs. Joseph Youngs. 

Thomas Youngs. John Youngs. 

Joseph Youngs. Bavfri -Youngs. 

Benjamin Youngs. Thomas Youngs. 

Christopher Youngs. Gidion Youngs. 



&0/hA*AAjLs 



The question then arose as to the boundaries between New York and 
Connecticut. Commissioners were appointed, of which Capt. Youngs was 
one; and on Nov. 30, 1664, they decided that the southern boundary of 
Connecticut was the Long Island Sound ;f and this did not please Southold. 

On March 1, 1665, Gov. Eichard Nicolls convened a meeting at Hemp- 
stead, of two delegates from each town, to which Southold sent Mr. William 
Wells and Capt. John Youngs. Westchester, Staten Island, and Long Island 
were erected into a shire, named Yorkshire, and divided into three ridings, 
Suffolk County being the East riding; and William Wells, of Southold, was 
appointed "High Sheriff of Yorkshire." The Duke's laws were then pro- 
mulgated by the Governor. |

Wood's Hist, of L. I., p. 88. L. I., p. 28. 



26 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

These laws bore hard on the people, who protested; and Capt. Youngs 
seems to have represented the feeling at Southold, for Gov. Nicolls, in a 
letter to Mr. Tappen on May 7, 1666, wrote, "I believe Capt. Young is a 
bad instrument, but if I am not mistaken he hath not brains to carry on 
such a business."* We shall see later that the Governor was not only mis- 
taken, but also misjudged Capt. Youngs' ability. 

Having passed under the government of the Duke of York, it appears 
that Southold thought it best to fortify the title to their lands; and on 
Dec. 7, 1665, a confirmatory deed to Capt. John Yongs, Barnabas Horton, 
and Thomas Mapes, for and on behalf of the town (for all the lands as 
described therein) was obtained from and signed by forty-three Corchaug 
Indians. It was witnessed by Benjamin Youngs (son of Bev. John) and 
Benoni Flint. This deed covers all the land east of Wading Biver (including 
Southold proper, for which no original Indian deed has been found), and 
asserts that "all that tract of land" was "purchased procured and paid for 
of the Sachems and Indians our (their) ancestors."f 

The year 1671, old style, brought sadness to Southold. The two men who 
had been their political and spiritual leaders for thirty years, passed away. 
William Wells, at the age of 63 years, died Nov. 13, 1671; and Pastor John 
Youngs, beloved of all, died on Feb. 24, 1671-2, aged 74. Barnabas Horton 
lived until 1680, and died at the age of 80. Matthias Corwin, who died in 
1658, was probably born before Pastor Youngs, but the early settlers seem 
to have been younger than he. 

On April 2d, 1672, a meeting was held, at which it was voted that Capt. 
John Youngs should go to the bay (Massachusetts) to procure a minister, at 
a salary of £60 sterling per year, J and Bev. Joshua Hobart was secured. 

In 1683 a new meeting house, with cedar windows, was being built 
directly across the street from the old one, and the town honored its two 
leading citizens by voting, on Feb. 11, 1683/4, "that Capt. Youngs and Mr. 
Isaac Arnold should have liberty to set up a pue at the west end of the 
pulpit for themselves and families."§ 

On the 3d of April following, Thomas Mapes, Sen'r, Mr. Thomas Moore, 
Sen'r, John Tuthill and Caleb Horton were chosen "to seate ye Inhabitants of 
this Town in ye Meeting house." § In December of the same year Samuell 
Youngs and Thomas Clarke, both carpenters, appraised the old meeting 
house at £35, to be made into a county prison, and sold "four Seder Windows 
left out of ye new meeting house" to Jonathan Horton for "£.3. in town 
payment."§ 

On July 30th, 1673, a fleet of Dutch war ships sailed up to New York,

and the place surrendered without firing a gun. Capt. Anthony Clove was 
appointed governor; and on August 14, he notified the Long Island towns 
to send deputies to New York with power to make submission. The Suffolk 
County towns sent deputies, and submitted terms of submission, most of 
which were granted, and Isaac Arnold, one of the deputies from Southold, 
was appointed Sheriff.* 

The Youngs had no love for the Dutch, and do not appear to have taken 
any part in these proceedings. The three towns at the east end having re- 
covered from the shock, declined to submit, and sent delegates to Connecticut, 
asking to be taken under its jurisdiction and protection, which was granted, 
and a court organized, and Capt. John Youngs, John Howell, and Mr. John 
Mulford appointed judges, f 

In the meantime, Gov. Clove sent his chief councilor, Corneelius Steen- 
wyck, and two others, in the frigate Zee-hond (Seadog), with more liberal 
terms, and threats of ruin if they did not submit. From the journal kept 
on board the frigate, we learn the particulars of the mission. They sailed 
Oct. 31, 1673, about noon on Tuesday, and were thrown ashore by the 
current near "Corlear's hook"; but warped off and sailed to Hell-gate, where 
they met the flood, and had to return and anchor near Barnet's Island. Wednes- 
day, the wind blew hard from the east, and they could not sail, so rowed 
to Barnet's Island; returning, touched a rock near the "Pot," and almost 
upset the boat. Thursday, they broke their .rope and lost their anchor. 
Friday, they passed the "White Stone," and reached "Minnewit's Island." 
Saturday, they sailed near Falcon's Island and met a hurricane. Sunday, 
they reached the riff of the "Littlegatt," but lost their boat. Monday, they 
discovered a sail in "Pluymgat" and pursued to near Silvester's Island. The 
boat contained Capt. Winthrop and Mr. Willis, who went on board the Dutch 
ship, and both sides showed their commissions. Tuesday, Nov. 7, the Con- 
necticut commissioners requested the Dutch to abandon their voyage, to 
which the Dutch replied that they were in duty bound to execute their com- 
mission. 

On the 7th the Connecticut commissioners rowed up to Southold in a 
boat belonging to Silvester's ship, with the King's Jack in the stern. The 
Dutch followed in a boat borrowed from Capt. Silvester, with the Prince's 
flag in the stern. They arrived at Southold at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, 
when they heard the drum beat and a trumpet sounded, and saw a salute with 
muskets whenever the Connecticut gentlemen passed by. 

The Dutch commissioners landed and, approaching nearer, discovered a 
troop of cavalry riding backward and forward, four of whom advanced and 
offered their horses, on which the commissioners mounted. Ascending the

heights, they met Capt. Winthrop and Mr. Wyllis, with a troop of horse of 
26 or 28 men, and so they rode on together to the village, where they found 
a company of sixty footmen in arms. After tarrying a few moments, they 
marched into the village to the house of one Mr. Moore, which they were 
invited to enter. After being in the house a little while, Mr. Steenwyck 
requested that the inhabitants be convoked that he might communicate to 
them the commission of the Dutch governor. The Connecticut commis- 
sioners replied that the inhabitants of Southold, being subjects of His 
Majesty of England, had nothing to do with the Dutch, and then said, 
"Whosoever among you will not remain faithful to His Majesty of England, 
your lawful Lord and King, let him now speak," to which not one of the 
inhabitants made answer. 

Mr. Steenwyck requested that the officers they had appointed be called. 
Thomas Hutchinson could not be found. Thomas Moore said he would not 
accept the office, saying that he "had nothing to do with it." Then Isaac 
Arnold, who had already been sworn as Sheriff, declared that he had already 
resigned his office as Sheriff, because it was not in his power to execute that 
office, having already been threatened by the inhabitants that they would 
plunder his house. 

The Dutch commissioners were also warned by some Southampton men, 
who were there, not to go to that town, and they departed for New York.* 

The Dutch sent a spirited protest to Connecticut, and sent ships and an 
armed force toward the east end of the Island, and made several descents; 
but, with the aid of troops sent by Connecticut, they were repulsed and 
driven off, but still continued aggressive, until, finally, on Nov. 26, 1673, 
Connecticut, in conjunction with the other New England Colonies, declared 
war against the Dutch, and made preparations to commence hostilities in the 
Spring. The Dutch, alarmed at this, on March 27, 1674, ordered their 
\essels assembled at a particular place, and prepared for defence; but peace 
was concluded in Europe on February 9, 1674, which put a stop to hostilities 
and restored all conquests to their former owners. 

On June 29, 1674, the Duke of York obtained a new patent for the 
territories granted him, and appointed Major Edmund Andross governor. 
Gov. Andros arrived in New York, Oct. 31, 1674. The three towns at the 
east end of Long Island dreaded a return to the Duke's government, and 
sent a memorial to Gov. Andros stating "that, by the aid furnished them by 
the kindness of Connecticut, they had repelled the Dutch; that that govern- 
ment had appointed both their civil and military officers; that they had 
become bound by oath to that colony, and could not dissolve the conection 
without their approbation." 

*Doc. Col. Hist. N. Y. ii, pp. 654, 657. 



THE FOUNDING OF S OUT HOLD, L. I. 29 

On Nov. 17, the people of Southold, by a vote of their town meeting, 
declared themselves "to be under the government of His Majesty's Colony of 
Connecticut, and that they would use all lawful means so to continue"; but 
all was without avail.* 

On Nov. 18, 1674, the governor and council ordered a messenger sent 
to the three towns, requiring them to restore the former overseers and con- 
stables to their places "under penalty of being declared rebels"; and ordered 
the three deputies who signed the memorial on behalf of the respective towns, 
to wit, John Mulford, John Howell and John Youngs, to appear and answer 
before the council, or suffer a like penalty. 

Eeluctantly and finally, Southold and all Long Island submitted and 
became a part of the Colony of New York. 

In 1674, Benjamin Youngs (son of Eev. John) was elected Eecorder of 
Southold, the most responsible civil officer of the town, and was re-elected 
annually until his death in 1697. 

On Oct. 31, 1676, Southold obtained a patent for their town from the 
Duke of York, signed by Gov. E. Andrus ; and the six patentees named therein 
were "Isaac Arnold Justice of ye pace, Capt. John Yong, Joshua Horton 
Constable, Barnabas Horton, Benjamin Yongs, Samuel Glover and Jacob 
Corey Overseers, f 

In 1681 Capt. John Youngs was appointed High Sheriff of Yorkshire, 
which office he held until it was abolished in 1683. On June 29th, 1681, he 
was appointed by the Court of Assize to draw up a petition to the Duke of 
York for an Assembly, which he did; and it was signed by John West, Clerk 
of Assize,f and presented to the Duke, and granted. 

This first Assembly of the Colony of New York was convened at the 
City of New York, 17th Oct., 16834 In this same year (1683) Capt. Youngs 
was appointed one of the eight commissioners to settle the boundary between 
New York and Connecticut. § 

On May 30, 1686, the following were commissioned officers of the 
troop of horse. "John Youngs Lieut. Col., John Howell, Major, Isaac 
Arnold, Capt., John Budd, Lieut., and John Youngs Jr., Ensign." || Prom 
1689 to 1693 John Youngs was Colonel of the Suffolk County Militia, con- 
sisting of nine companies and 553 men v T[ He was succeeded by Isaac Arnold. 

In 1686, by "Boyal Instructions," he was appointed one of His Majesty's 
Council to Gov. Dongan, who, on Oct. 8 , 1687, suspended him from office 
under the charge of "detailing many aged and sickly men unfit for service, and 
others without arms," to fill the Long Island town quota to protect the fron- 
tier. These charges evidently were untrue, for Gov. Dongan was superseded

by Gov. Andros in 1688, who, in April of that year, appointed Youngs a 
member of his council, and reported to the home government that he was 
a man of proved loyalty and integrity. 

When Jacob Leister, in 1690, usurped the government of the Colony of 
New York, Southold refused to support him, and, after his capture, Gov. 
Slaughter appointed Col. John Youngs and Isaac Arnold two of the judges 
who tried and convicted him of high treason. 

On March 23, 1692, he was appointed a member of Gov. Slaughter's 
council; on April 20, 1693, of Gov. Fletcher's council, and when he died 
he was a member of His Majesty's Council to Gov. Belmont.* Thus was 
ended the career of the most notable man on Long Island during the entire 
colonial period.

Eev. Christopher Yonges, Vicar of Eeydon and Southwold, England, 
was our last resident English ancestor, and the principal account of him 
will be found in the chapters on "By the Name of Yonge" and "Eeydon 
and Southwold." 

In his boyhood the Beformation swept over England, and Sogers,, 
Latimer and Cranmer were burned at the stake. 

He married late in life (Elizabeth did not favor the marriage of priests) 
and came to Southwold in the year in which the translation of the Bible into 
the King James version was completed. Shakespeare died in 1616, and 
Bacon in 1626, the same year as Vicar Yonges. 

No higher tribute can be paid to one of his calling than is contained in 
his epitaph, and we can believe that he was like a "father in Israel," leading 
his people into ways of righteousness. 

Abstract of his will: 

"Christopher Yonges, clerk, minister of Southwold 21 November — proved July 
5, 1626. To wife Margaret all lands, etc, for life, Then to my six children John, 
Joseph, Christopher, Mary, Margaret and Martha. To eldest son all my books 
except some English books such as my wife or my other children shall choose out 
for their use, one or two apiece. To John and Thomas Yonges my grand children, 
to each a silver spoon. Wife Margaret and John Smith and Thomas Elliot of 
Southwold to be executors." (Consistory Court Norwich 1626. No. 164). 

Abstract of his widow's will : 

"Margaret Youngs late wife of Christopher Youngs deceased of Southwold. 
27 October 1630. proved 8 January 1630. For the outward goods that God hath 
given me I do dispose as followeth. For the house and land I dwell in I desire it 
may be divided amongst my children according to my husband's will. Next for all 
my household stuff &c belonging to me, my will is, my debts and funeral charge 
being paid, the remainder to be equally divided betwixt my six children — John, 
Joseph, Christopher, Mary, Margaret and Martha, or so many as shall be alive at 
the time of my decease. My two sons John and Joseph Yonges to be Executors."

a In the Southwold Parish Register, the name Herrington and the word widow 
are difficult to read, but this is cleared up in the following recently discovered 
marriage license: "1622, 24 July, marriage lisence granted to John Yonges, bachelor, 
and Joan Herrington, of Southwolde, spinster. Bond in Mr. Christopher Yongs." 
(From W. Reynell-Upham, Exmouth, England.) She may have been the daughter 
of the Stephen Herrington mentioned in the will of Thomas Warren. 

b She married at Great Yarmouth, Eng., 24 Jan., 1725, Richard Palgrave, who 
died 30 May, 1630. Their daughter, Anna Palgrave, bapt. Yarmouth, 24 Jan., 
1725-6 (Palgrave Memorial); came to Salem, Mass., with the family of her step- 
father Rev. John Youngs, and married Nicholas Woodbury. This was testified to 
in 1710, by several elderly people who knew her. (New Eng., Hist., Reg., XXIX,

Eev. John Youngs was born in England about 1598, just as the long 
reign of Elizabeth was drawing to its close. It is believed that he was 
educated at Oxford, as its register states that "John Younge subscribed there 
22 June, 1610."* 

He was married in 1622, in the church at Southwold, Eng., of which 
his father was vicar, and his two eldest sons were baptized there. 

He doubtless wore his hair long and flowing to the shoulder, which was 
the mark of a gentleman; and in the pulpit wore the Geneva gown. He 
owned the works of the Rev. William Perkins,f an able writer who taught 
the Calvinistic system, and that, no doubt, is the doctrine he expounded to 
his people. 

It is not questioned that he was the first settler and founder of Southold, 
L. I., and next to him in point of time is believed to be Matthias Corwin. 

There is every evidence that he was held in the greatest love and esteem. 
His home lot was the largest and best located, and he had a large share in 
the division of lands, most of which he gave to his sons some years before 
his death.! The remainder, together with his homestead, after his widow's 
death in 1678, was inherited by his son Benjamin, and from him the home- 
stead, in 1697, probably passed to his eldest son, John. In 1783 it was in 
possession of Joseph Prince. § 

He appears to have taken no active part in politics, and it is probably 
because of this that New Haven, on several occasions, desired to hear from 

c Edward Petty, m. Mary Youngs before 1658. She prob. died about 1671, for 
on May 15 of that year he gave his two youngest children, "James aged about nine 
years, to Thomas Moore * * * and said Thomas Moore's wife (sister of Rev. 
John Youngs) to be as their own child," and "his Sonn Joseph Petty aged about 
four years to Nathaniel Moore (son of Thomas Moore), he to bring him up as his 
own child." By the will of Mary, widow of Rev. John Youngs, he received one 
sheep as his full portion. After 1671 he married Mary — who was living in 1702.

him before acting on complaints from Southold. It is attributed to his 
safe counsel and wise judgment that opposing factions were harmonized, 
that those in the town who were Quakers, or favored them, were not perse- 
cuted, and that there was no case of witchcraft in Southold. 

Not a line of his handwriting has been preserved, but in the Town 
Eecords his name appears three times as a signature, and in each instance 
it is spelled "Youngs/'* 

He lived to see the town become prominent and prosperous, and two of 
his sons its leading citizens and officers. 

The good Barnabas Horton and Deacon Barnabas Wines were with him 
and took his last words when the summons came and his work was ended.f 

These two friends, in 1675, testified that "Mr. John Yongs at or nere his 
death left all his estate to the sole dispose of his wife Mrs. Mary Yongs," 
and she was appointed administratrix.* 

For the principal events in his life, see the four chapters succeeding 
that on "By the Name of Yonge."

. He brought with him his sister Mary, and her husband, William Brown, 
and doubtless his own family, and that of his brother Christopher, to Salem, 
Mass. 

In 1638, he was master of the "Mary and Anne," (the vessel in which 
the Eev. John Youngs' family came over), and carried passengers and 
cargo from the Plymouth Plantation to England.* 

In 1638 he was admitted an inhabitant of Salem, and together with 
his brother Christopher, were granted, each a half acre of land at Winter 
Harbor for their fishing affairs (to cure fish). He also was granted a 
ten-acre lot "neere Mr. Downings farme," and in 1639 he was granted thirty 
acres of land.f 

In 1640-42 he obtained judgments against Eichard Graves and Kichard 
Hollingworth, the principal shipwrights of Salem.J 

He removed to Southold, L. I., about 1649, and, in Sept. of that year, 
he sold two houses in Salem to David Carwithy.§ 

At Southold he continued as master of a vessel, making trading voyages 
to Barbadoes and elsewhere, and in Nov., 1656, he was taking a cargo on the 
"Mary and Margaret," at Southold.|| 

He died intestate, and, on Jan. 7th, 1658, his widow had their property 
in Southold recorded, which showed that they had a "Whome" (home) lott, 
at the East end of the town on the north side of the highway between those 
of Arthur and Eobert Smyth.* 

An inventory of his estate, taken Sept. 15th, 1658, (after his share in 
his ship had been sold), amounted to £477. s. 09, Tf showing him to have been 
one of the wealthiest men in Southold. 

In 1661, in an allotment of common lands, the widow received eight 
lots in Oyster Ponds, and this became the possession of her son Gideon, and 
was the celebrated 400-acre farm at Oreent, L. I.** 

She appears to have settled her sons on different parts of the large estate 
in the town, but to have retained the management until her death about 
1669, the last record being a release given by her to John Cory, May 9th, 

1669-tt 

Four sons are mentioned in a record as follows : "All and every part of 
the lands that was in possession of Mrs. Margarett Youngs widdow. that is 
now in posession of her sons Joseph, John, Gideon or Samuel or any or all of 
them was recovered of her by lawe at a sesion held in Southold. John Youngs

Christopher Yongs and his wife, Priscilla, probably came from England 
in 1635, in the ship "Love," of which his brother Joseph was master. He 
was a weaver, and brought looms, gearing, and cloth to this country; but 
had to supplement the product of his looms by fishing during its season. 

On the 17th, 12th mo., 1636, he received a grant of land for a home 
lot at Salem, Mass., and was received as an inhabitant. || 

He was granted half an acre at Winter Harbor for his "fishing affairs,"f 
and several large grants later. "[ About 1644 he removed to Wenham, Mass., 
where he died three years later. Tf 

His will, dated 19th, 4th mo., 1647 ; proved 8th, 5th mo., 1647,** bears 
evidence that it was written by himself, and shows that he was a man of fine 
Christian character and loving disposition. 

In it he bequeathes to his daughter Sarah his "great Bible," to his 
daughter Mary his lesser Bible, and to his son Christopher a book entitled 
"God's All Sufficiency," and directs that they be sent "over sea into our 
native County unto Great Yarmouth in Norfolk in Old England." His two

THIRD GENERATION. 



49 



Col. John Youngs came to America with his father's family, in 1637, 

and in early life was master of a bark, engaged in the coasting trade and 

carrying passengers between the colonies and plantations. His long and 
brilliant career is set forth in the chapter on "The Founding of Southold, 

L. I." 

His home lot of four acres, and dwelling, which he recorded in 1656, 
was opposite that of his father's on the road to Town Creek, and it is now 
(1906) occupied by Mrs. Eebecca Downs.* 

He was a large owner of land, which he obtained both by purchase and 
grants. In May, 1649, the General Court at New Haven granted him some 
forty acres on the west side of Sterling Harbor,f and on Nov. 20, 1659, 
Southold Town granted him a strip of land between that and the original 
Jackson tract, then the Moore farm.$ All of this came to be known as 
West Neck. In 1674 he gave it to his eldest son, John,§ and three genera- 
tions of his descendants lived upon it. It is now entirely covered by the 
town of G-reenport. 

Another important tract was the 500-acre farm at Oyster Ponds, Upper 
Neck, which remained unbroken in the family until 1816, when Justice 
Thomas Youngs bequeathed it to his four sons.|| This tract Col. Youngs 
gave to his son Thomas in 1686.j[ To his sons-in-law Thomas Gilbert and 
Thomas Longworth he gave lands in 1684/5.** 

"In the second generation of this place he was the foremost man in 
Southold, and no other man on Long Island was so prominent."ft 

Abstract of Col. John Young's will: 

Febry 26, 1696/7. Proved May 28, 1698. 

"I John Youngs of ye towne of Southold in ye county of Suffolk in ye province

11 THOMAS, 3 Capt. (Rev. John, 2 Rev. Christopher 1 ), B. Southwold, 
Eng., 1 May, 1625 ;* d. Elizabeth Town, N. J., bet. April and Sept., 1686. 

He prob. married, but doubtless left no widow or children. 

He wrote his name both "Young" and "Yongs," and has been con- 
founded with "Thomas Younges" of Oyster Bay, L. I., who was his cousin. 

He doubtless was in Southold, L. I., with his father's family, and on 
Oct. 28th, 1671, he received a deed of gift from his father of a tract of 
land in "Oysterpond Upper Neck," with the proviso that he was not to sell 
it, but to leave it to his heirs.f But he sold it to his half brother, Christopher 
Youngs, Oct. 2nd, 1679.f 

These are the only records of him in Southold, L. I., and he seems not 
to have had any house or home lot there. 

The first mention of him in America is on ISFov. 30th, 1654, when, his 
"Ketch" (schooner) having been stranded at Hell Gate, he was sued in the 
Court at New Amsterdam (New York) by Cornelius Van Dort, for "100 
guilders as promised for assisting in getting the Ketch off the rocks and 
bringing her to Manhattan/'J and he was before the same court several times 
in 1658.§ 

On Feb. 9, 1665, he, with his brother Christopher and eleven others 
from Southold, together with others, took the oath of allegiance at Elizabeth 
Town, N. J. (his name heading the list), and founded that town under 
grants from Gov. Richard Nichols, he receiving a "Third Lot Right." || 

Three days later, Gov. Carteret appointed him one of his council. || 

a The seal on his original will was discovered by Miss Lucy D. Akerly. An 
impression was taken from it by the author, which was submitted by Mrs. George 
Wilson Smith to Mr. Thomas Moring of London, genealogist, and pronounced by 
him to be the Tudor Trevor coat of arms.

THIRD GENERATION. 51 

He proceeded at once to have a house built, and was sued for payment 
of same.* 

Several other records seem to show that he had a wife, and perhaps 
children, although none survived him. a 

During the following twenty years he received several large grants of 
land,f the last of which was on Feb. 27, 1684. J 

On Aug. 31, 1683, he was appointed by Gov. Dongan the first pilot of 
New York,§ and on Oct. 2, 1685, he and Eobert Barlow gave a receipt to Miles 
Foster, of Amboy, merchant, for goods, to be sold or traded in New England. || 

By will, dated April 29th, 1686, he bequeathed all his estate to Christopher 
Youngs (probably son of his brother Christopher) and Thomas Longworth" 
(who married Deborah, daughter of Col. John Youngs).

52 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Joseph Youngs is designated in the Southold Town Kecords as "Junior," 
to distinguish him from his cousin, Joseph Youngs, No. 17, who was born 
1633.* 

He had a home lot, adjoining Capt. John Underhill, and owned a number 
of parcels of land, one of which was a tract east of Mattituck Creek, and ex- 
tending from the main road to the Long Island Sound, f 

This latter tract his widow sold, in 1684, to her brother, Barnabas 
Wines,| and it has remained in that family until the present generation. 

An inventory of his estate was taken April 12, 1675. §

Benjamin Yongs was probably born in Southold, N. Y., and is first men- 
tioned in the will of his grandfather, Thomas Warren, of Southwold, Eng- 
land, dated 4 March, 1641, bequeathing him £10. 

He seems to have lived in the old homestead with his father and mother, 
and to have inherited it by will from his mother in 1678, together with all 
the household and farming effects, and other lands. J 

In 1665 he was a witness to the Indian deed for that part of the Island, 
and one of the patentees of the town in 1676.** 

Erom 1674 to 1683, he was Town Clerk, and Eecorder from 1674 to the 
time of his death, in 1697. ft 

In 1675 he was On the tax list as Beniam Yongs: 2 heads (able-bodied 
men) £36; 18 acres (land fenced in) £18; 6 oxen, 3 cows £51; 2, 3 yr. olds, 
2, 2 yr old, £13; 1 horse, 1 yerling hors £15; 21 sheep, 8 swine £09. Total 
£142. XX 

In the census of 1686, he had 4 males and 3 females in his family,J| and

Youngs.* 

In 1694 he indented his son Benjamin to John Alaban, to learn the 
weaver's trade.f 

His two sons are identified by several deeds executed before and after 
his death.! 

The last record of him is in 1697, when he gave a quit claim to Jonathan 
Horton for land which he had sold to his father in 1675. § 

He evidently died intestate, and the "Youngs Homestead" probably 
passed to his son John. In 1783 it was owned by Joseph Prince.

54 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Christopher Youngs was known in Southold as "Senior" to distinguish 
him from his cousin, Christopher Youngs, Jun., No. 26, who was born in 
1643. He signed his name both Youngs and Yongs,* but his cousin made 
his mark.f 

He was a mariner and had a half interest in the sloop "Speedwell." | 

In 1665, he went to Elizabethtown, N. J., with his brother Thomas and 
others, but, in Nov., 1667, he sold his house and lands there and returned to 
Southold. § 

In Southold he first owned a house and home lot on the north side of 
Town Street, which he bought of Elnathan Topping, and this he sold Oct. 20, 
1670, his first wife, Mary, signing with him.|| 

On Aug. 1, 1670, he bought the house and home lot of Benjamin Horton,^f 
on the south side of Town Street and adjoining that of his brother, Col. 
John Youngs. 

In order that he might have a full frontage on the street, his mother, 
in 1675, bought of John Core a piece "two pole square" and gave to him,Tf 
and by will bequeathed him other lands.^[ 

He also received a gift of land from his father, bought land of his 
brother Thomas, and made numerous purchases and sales.** 

By the will of his father-in-law, John Budd, dated 27 Oct., 1684,ff his 
wife inherited various parcels of land, &c.,f f and on the 2nd Feb'y, 1685/6, 
he gave a receipt to the executors for the same.|| 

After his death, John Budd, the eldest brother of Mary, the widow of 
Christopher Youngs, deceased, gave to her and her two sons, Christopher 
and John, a deed confirming to them the "Ockebock" lands,§§ which she 
inberited by will of her father. 

The intent of this was to secure this land to her sons, independent of 
his son Benjamin, by his first wife. 

The sons, Christopher and John, went to live on this land at Acquebauk, 
and, on May 12, 1712, entered into an agreement to divide it after the death 
of their mother ;|||| but it was divided before her death, for in 1723/4, she, in 
consideration of a sum of money, gave a quit claim to her son John for his 
part of the land "as divided." YH 

In 1675, he was rated for £120. s. 10.*** In 1686, he had 4 males and 2 
females in his family.

On Sept. 20, 1695, letters of administration were granted on the estate 
of "Christopher Youngs, Senr., late of Southold in ye County of Suffolk, 
(who) departed this life ye 31st July, Anno Dom. 1695, (to) Mary ye 
widow and Benjamin ye eldest son of ye said deceased."* 

In the census of 1698, we find the family group, "Mary Yongs Jun., 
widow, Christopher, Anna, Phibe and Eliza Yongs," the latter probably the 
wife of Christopher, f 

The son John was the one next to and probably lived with John Griffen,f 
and learned the shoemaker's trade.

Joseph Youngs resided in the village of Southold, L. I., and in the town 

records is designated as "yeoman." He had considerable landed estate and 

a home lot and dwelling on the north side of Town Street, which later was 

owned by his son Josiah, and, as eldest son, he gave quit claims to his 

brothers or their children for their shares in his father's estate.* His name 
is in the census of 1698, together with his wife's and two of his children's, 

Thomas and Mary.f In 1706/7 he sold land to his son Thomas.!

John Youngs is designated in the Southold Town Becords as "marriner." 
He had a house and home lot on Town Creek at the rear of the home lots of 
Christopher Youngs, Col. John Youngs, and Peter Payne, which he bought 
of Charles Glover. || 

In 1667 he received permission from the town to "build a wharf on the 
creek side in front of his dwelling," and, in 1669, to build a warehouse on the 
common at the rear of his lot.|| 

He made a number of transactions in land between that time and 1689, 
and in 1703 (after his death) his eldest brother, Joseph Youngs, gave a quit 
claim to his eldest son, Abraham Youngs, for his share in the estate of his 
grandfather, Capt. Joseph Youngs. ||

THIRD GENERATION. 57 

His wife is mentioned in the will of Barnabas 1 Horton, May 10, 1680, 
as 1 his "youngest daughter Mercy Youngs," and, in 1689, Joshua Horton 
recorded meadow lands which he had "purchased of his brother-in-law, John 
Yongs marriner."* 

In 1698 his home lot is described as belonging to Mercy^ettngs.f It 
passed into the possession of his eldest son, AbrahamTaSoThe sold it in 1707/8 
to his brother John.f In 1784 it was owned By. his brother John's son, 
Nathaniel.^ 

He is in the census list of 1686 with 3 males, 2 females, and 1 male slave 
in his family, which indicates that his son John was not born at that time. 

In the census of 1698 (after his death), we have the family group, 
"Christopher Youngs, Mercy Youngs, Abraham Youngs, Nathaniel Youngs, 
John Youngs, § but his wife is not designated as "widow," and had probably 
married Christopher Youngs, No. 26, who was no longer "junior/' as C. Y. 
Senior, No. 16, had died in 1695.

after her father, Thomas Warren, of Southwold, England. 

The first mention of him is on Oct. 4th, 1673, when he received a 
grant of land at Greenwich, Conn.|| He did not remain there long, and 
three years later he was at Oyster Bay, L. I., where he became the progenitor 
of the Oyster Bay branch of Youngs.

YOUNGS FAMILY. 



His removal is set forth in a conveyance to his son John, on Dec. 2nd, 
1689, of all his property in Greenwich, in which he is described as "Thomas 
Youngs, once an inhabitant of Greenwich, Conn., now a resident at Oishter 
Bay, L. I."* 

The time of his locating there is established by a grant to him by the 
Town of Oyster Bay on June 20th, 1676, as follows, "unto Thomas Youngs, 
three acres of land for a home lot, lying on ye South West side of ye Cove 
Neck Swamp, .... with free commonage of grasing and timber, pro- 
vided that ye said Thomas Youngs doth build upon ye said lot, or fence it 
within a twelve month and a day, if not to return to the Town again without 
exception/' f This is the site of the original Youngs homestead, and the 
estate was built up by subsequent grants and purchases. 

In 1687 he was made an "equal townsman," J and in 1694 he was 
granted the liberty to spin rope yarn and make rope "up the Hollow by his 
shop on ye Commons." § 

His second wife and children are identified by various conveyances of 
land. 

On Feb. 2nd, 1679, he sells to "my (his) father-in-law Eichard Har- 
curt," all his right in Unqua Neck,|| and, in 1697/8, "Thomas Youngs and 
Elizabeth his now wife" convey to Thomas Wood "the house and land where 
the said Tho Wood now liveth, which was given us by our father Eichard 
Harcott deed."! 

On May 10th, 1699, he executed a deed of gift to his "eldest son, John 
Youngs of Stamford,"** and on the same date to his son Thomas Youngs 
thirty acres of land nigh to Cold Spring.ff 

In 1703 he conveyed lands to his sons Eichard |||| and Samuel,^ and to 
Benjamin and Jonas, naming them as his two youngest sons.§§ 

In the deed to his son Samuel he reserved to himself a strip of land 
"for a Eope Yard forever," §§ which indicates that he continued the business 
of rope-making. 

In 1720 he sold to his son, Samuel, land which he bought of Eichard 
Butler in 1715.1 1 

The original deeds to his sons, Eichard and Samuel, in 1703, and 
Samuel in 1720, with his signature affixed to each, are in the possession of 
William J. Youngs, and in each signature his name is written Younges. 

Prior to the earliest date of these deeds, he had leased his homestead and 
farm to his sons Thomas and Eichard for three and one-half years. 

The body of the lease and the signatures are in the beautiful hand-

writing of Thomas Younges, Sen'r, and wherever the family name appears 
in it, it is written Yoimges. Evidently it is a duplicate of the lease given 
to his sons, and the date, which, strange to say, is 1670, cannot he reconciled 
with the ages of his sons, as the son Richard was probably born about 1674. 
Hereafter something may be discovered to elucidate this apparent mystery. 

Oyster Bay, the first month, 20th day, 1670. 

This is an agreement made between Thomas Youngs, senior, and Thomas 
Youngs and Richard Youngs his brother. First they are to have the free use of 
my team cart and plow, with the iron chains and all things thereto belonging, and 
they are to stub and break up and manure all the said land, now within fence, that 
is fit for it, and they are to look well and carefully after all my creatures, and they 
are to have for their team and plow two-thirds of all the increase, of all the land 
manured, that I own there, and they are to have two-thirds of the fruit, and I reserve 
one or two barrels for John Youngs, and so every year following as they enjoy it. 
Then for the sheep, there are thirty, and they are to deliver me thirty pounds of 
wool each year. That is one pound for one sheep, and there are nine lambs, and 
at the end of three years and a half they are to deliver me thirty sheep and nine 
lambs. Now for the cattle, we are to have half of the milk and one-third of the 
increase, and they two-thirds; and they are to find and provide me a beast to ride, 
on when I please, and they are to provide me wood to burn, what is needful. 

Four cows, one two-year old heifer, one two-year old bull, four yearlings, and 
the principals engage to me to make good, at the term and time of three years 
and a half, of all these creatures. We do also engage to sow so many acres of 
wheat and rye on the ground as there is now, at the end of three years and a half; 
and to leave all my goods and carts and plows, and them, with all things else, that 
they receive of me as good, as they are now; two broad chisels, two narrow chisels, 
one saw, two adze, compasses, one inch and a half auger, three lesser augers, one 
bung borer, one presser bit, one mattock, two forks, three pair of new traces and one 
old pair, two new collars and two old collars, one pair of cart traces with iron hook, 
with a new collar. One crosscut saw, one new file, a beetle, three wedges, one 
saw set, two great devices with the bolts, two lesser devices with the bolts. And 
they are to tan my hides for one third, and they are to leave all my farm in as good 
order and repair as they are now with all things else, with six bushels of oats, two 
bushels and a half of peas, two bushels of barley, one bushel and a half of flax-seed. 
As our hand and seal the manner as within, 

Thomas Youngs, Sen., 
Thomas Youngs, Jun., 
Richard Youngs. 

Thomas Younges wrote his name Younges, and his sons did likewise. 
Later generations of this branch have written it Youngs.

60 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Our English ancestor wrote it both Yonges and Younges. In recording 
the death of his daughter he wrote, "Elizabeth Yonges daughter to Mr. 
Younges, vicar and minister."* 

In Southold, L. I., the name was usually written "Youngs," but in a 
quit claim given by the widow of Capt. Joseph Youngs in 1669, her name 
is written Margret Younges, and in 1698 her son Samuel (brother of 
Thomas, of Oyster Bay), in giving a receipt, signed his name Samuell 
Younges.^ 

Col. John Youngs in his account as High Sheriff, in 1680, spells his 
surname "Younges." 

None other than the descendants of Vicar Christopher Younges of 
England are known to have spelled their surname Younges in America, and 
it seems clear that this Thomas Younges is rightly placed in this family. 

The will of Elizabeth Youngs, widow, relict of Thomas Youngs, of 
Oyster Bay, deceased, dated August 4th, 1726, mentions her sons, Eichard, 
Samuel and Jonas Youngs, and daughter-in-law, Abigail Youngs, widow 
of Joseph Youngs, deceased, also "ISTeppe," the wife of her son Samuel, and 
grand-daughters, Elizabeth and Mary Youngs. A codicil mentions her 
granddaughters, Mary and Elizabeth Ireland, and cousin George Townsend.|

Gideon Youngs had his lands recorded on April 7th, 1670, the principal 
parcel being the four-hundred-acre farm at "Oyster Pond lower Neck," which 
he inherited from his father's estate. || 

This fine tract of land commenced at the Steamboat Wharf and extended 
eastward along the river. His house was situated one-quarter of a mile from 
the wharf and thirty rods back from the shore, adjoining some beautiful

low banks, known as Gideon's Banks. The original house was last occupied 
by his grandson, Walter Youngs,* and part of the farm is now owned by- 
Thomas H. Youngs, one of his descendants. 

In the census of 1698 his family is given in the following order, 
Gideon, Sarah, Joseph, Jonathan, David, Gideon, Sarah, Hannah, Margaret, 
and Mary Youngs.f 

His will, dated Dec. 22, 1699, proved Feb. 22, 1700, names wife Sarah,

sons Joseph and David, under age, bequeathing them £30 each, and mentions

Samuel Yongs, or Younges, was a carpenter by trade, and on Dec. 12, 
1684, he was chosen to value the old meeting house. As early as 1678, he 
owned and occupied the house and home lot late of his mother in Southold.** 

In the census of 1686 his family is reported as consisting of four males 
and three females. The males doubtless being himself and his sons Ephraim, 
David, and Samuel. Nathan and Zerubable probably were sons of his 
second wife and born after 1690. 

His first wife probably died about 1690, for we find that on Nov. 10, 
1691, he bound out his son David, then eight years of age, to Joseph and 
Ruth Mapes to learn the cooper's trade,|f and in the census of 1698 his 
name, together with that of Mary Youngs (probably his sister), is in the 
family group of Joseph and Ruth Mapes. His son Samuel was also probably 
bound out to Nathan Langdon or Joseph Swezey, his name being between

those family groups in the census of 1698. This left his own family in the 
census of that year to consist of himself, his wife Mary, dau. Margaret, and 
sons Nathan and Zerubabel.* 

Ephraim and Samuel are placed as the sons of Samuel Youngs, as the 
members of the other families seem to be fully identified by the records 
quoted, and they fit naturally in his family and not elsewhere. 

On 14 July, 1698, Thomas Halliouck and Samuell Younges gave a receipt 
to Isaac Corey for £12, "which was a legacy left them by their father Daniel

This Christopher Yongs was called "Junior" in Southold, L. I. (being 
a year or two younger than his cousin, Christopher, No. 16). 

His parents dying when he was young, he was taken to Southold, L. 1.,$$ 
and seems to have been brought up by his Aunt Martha, the wife of Thomas 
Moore. 

In 1659 he is mentioned in an affidavit of Eichard Skidmore as "Christo- 
pher Youngs jun," together with his cousin Benjamin Moore, regarding a 
turkey hunt.§§

THIRD GENERATION. 63 

We infer that he did not receive much education from the fact that 
he did not sign his name, but made his mark.* 

In 1675 he was rated as Christopher Yongs, Jun'r, (on cattle) for £56. f 

He married Hannah (or Anna) Mchols (granddaughter of Barnabas 
Wines, Sen'r), whose mother Hannah (or Anna) for her fourth husband 
married Col. John Youngs.| She brought with her considerable estate,! 
and on Feb. 4, 1677, after his marriage, he executed an agreement with her 
regarding the same.§ After this he had several large transactions in land. || 

The only house and home lot which there is a record of his owning is 
the one he bought of Josiah Youngs, in 1692,§ on the north side of Town 
Street, Southold, L. I. 

After his wife's death and his children had grown up, he seems to have 
been living with the family of his cousin, John Youngs, mariner, deceased 
(No. 18), and had probably married the widow, Mercy Horton Youngs, as he 
appears at the head of her family group in the census of 1698, and she is 
not designated as "widow." ^[ 

He died . possessed of landed property, which, from 1700 to 1704, was 
sold by his son-in-law, Samuel Darby, and his daughters, Hannah Darby and 
Sarah Youngs.**

John Youngs is designated in the Southold Town Records as "farmer" 
and "Jun'r." 

In 1683 he was Ensign of the troop of horse, and just before his death, in 
1685, he was commissioned Lieut. 

In 1674 he received a deed of gift from his father of land called "West 
Neck," and adjoining the "Moore farm" on the west. It is now covered by 
the village of Greenport. John and his descendants occupied it for four 
generations. 

His wife brought him considerable property,! and he made several pur- 
chases and sales of land.§ 

On Jan. 27, 1685, his widow was appointed administrator of his estate, || 
and an inventory taken Oct. 16th gave a valuation of £185. s. 18. Tf 

In the census of 1686, the family of "Mary Youngs widow" consists of 
three males and two females. The males evidently were his sons Daniel, 
William and Joshua, the latter then two years of age. 

The census of 1698 gives the names of this family in a group as follows : 
"Mary Youngs, widow, Daniel Youngs, William Youngs, Joshua Youngs." 

In a later generation the name of this Joshua's father was supposed to 
have been Zerubable, but Joshua was in this family from infancy, and it 
appears to have been an error. (See Joshua No. 76 and Thomas No. 173.) 

33 JOHN 4 (Benjamin, 3 Rev. John 2 Rev. Christopher 1 ), b. Southold,

the death of his uncle, Col. John Youngs, in 1697. "John Youngs, cord- 
winder," No. 39, and "John Youngs, taylor," No. 49, were of the same gen- 
eration. 

In 1697 he doubtless inherited the Eev. John Youngs' homestead from 
his father, and in the census of 1698 his name is in the family group next 
after the name of his mother, Elizabeth Youngs, widow. In a deed dated 
30 Sept., 1702, he is mentioned as John Youngs, Sen'r, owning land "late 
in possession of his father, Benjamin Youngs, deceased."* 

April 3, 1705, he, "John Youngs of Southold, yeoman," sold to John 
Goldsmith 14 acres of land in Hog Neck, a half lot of 14 acres, and a half lot 
of commonage, undivided.f 

On May 12, 1712, he, "John Youngs of Southold, yeoman," sold to John 
Corwin two first allotments of land, in consideration of said Corwin selling 
two first allotments of land to his brother Benjamin Youngs, of Southold, 
weaver.:}: 

In 1715 he was a private in the Southold Militia Co. No. 1, Benjamin 
Youngs, Captain. 

After this time there is no record of him in Southold, nor is it known 
when or to whom the Eev. John Youngs' homestead and home lot passed from 
his possession ; neither do the "Salmon Eecords" give his death. He probably 
removed to New Jersey or Connecticut or some other county of New York.

66 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Benjamin Youngs, in 1694, when sixteen years of age, began learning 
the trade of weaver, of John Alaban, who engaged to teach him as far as 
he could, "excepting bed ticking."* 

In May, 1712, John Cor win sold him 50 acres of land, in consideration 
of which his brother, John Youngs, sold 50 acres of land to said Corwin.f 

This land he, "Benjamin Youngs, Jun., of Southold, weaver," exchanged, 
Sept. 16, 1713, with Joseph Hull, for a house and home lot, his wife, Mercy 
Youngs, signing the deed with him.$ 

In 1715 he was in Militia Co. No. 3, of which his cousin, Benjamin 
Youngs, was Captain. 

Of his sons, Isaac settled in Southold, Joseph located near Mattituck, 
Seth removed to Connecticut, and Israel in 1761 bought a farm in Franklin- 
ville, L. I. (now Laurel), and he probably went to live with the latter and 
died there.

a Robert Hempstead was a native of New London, Conn., and came to Southold 
for his education. He studied law with Judge Benjamin Youngs, and afterwards 
married his daughter. He was a Justice of the Peace and, in 1776, chairman to 
the Southold Committee of Safety and a delegate to the New York Provisional 
Convention. In 1775 he engaged to support Congress; and on Aug. 27 and 31, 1776, 
after the Battle of Long Island, as chairman of the Town Committee, he wrote to 
Congress describing their exposed and helpless condition and soliciting aid. 
Gen'l Wooster was sent to the east end of Long Island with troops, but was soon 
ordered to join the main army. General Washington in a letter explained that the 
army must be used in the most effective manner for the good of the cause, rather 
than in attempting to protect localities. (Force Archives.)

owned by J. Henry Cochran, and after the death of her husband, Dr. Moore, at the 
breaking out of the Revolutionary War, she kept it as a tavern. The week after 
the massacre at Fort Griswold, Conn., the British fleet lay in Gardner's Bay, and 
Elnathan Burts, a tory, of Southold, visited it and gave information of the con- 
duct of his neighbors; and on the 6th Sept., 1781, twenty armed men in two whale 
boats landed early in the morning at the east end of Southold and disarmed a num- 
ber of people, fired on sundry of them, and coming to David Gardner's, they forced 
open the doors and entered with fixed bayonets and took many goods, after which 
they knocked down Joseph Peck, and on their way to the shore they beat with 
their guns Mr. L'Hommedieu and his wife, aged people, and threatened to fire the 
house of Widow Moore. 

Her daughter Fanny Ledyard was at Groton, Conn., on a visit to her uncle 
Col. Ledyard at the time of the massacre at Fort Griswold, and was the first to

Capt. Benjamin Youngs was the second of his name in Southold, his 
cousin Benjamin Youngs (son of Benjamin Youngs, No. 15) being ten 
years younger. 

In several deeds prior to 1700 he is designated as carpenter, or husband- 
man^ One of these was a deed to him in 1696/7 from Theophilus Case, for 
a first lot of land at Aquebogue, extending from the Sound to the Bay, lying 

enter the fort after the surrender. The first object to meet her sight on entering 
was the body of her dead uncle, and more than twenty of her first and second 
cousins lay dead or dying. 

Fanny Ledyard became the second wife of Richard Peter©, who owned the 
Col. John Youngs homestead. 
(Ondirdonk's Scrap Book, Astor Library, Griffin's Journal, p. 138.) 

Her eldest son was John Ledyard, the traveler, who after his voyage around 
the world with Capt. Cook, visited her in Southold.-j- She was the leading spirit 
among the Methodists' at the formation of the earliest class in Southold in 1795 
(Griffin's Journal, p. 259, Life of John Ledyard Sparks).

west of the land John Budd gave to his dan. Mary, the wife of Christopher 
Youngs (his father). 

In 1697 his uncle Benjamin Youngs died and he was elected to fill his 
place as Town Clerk and Kecorder, and for forty-four consecutive years was 
annually re-elected.* He was a Justice of the Peace for many years, and from 
1723 to 1738 Judge of the Court of Common Pleas.f In 1726 he was Treas- 
urer of Suffolk County, and in 1715 Captain of the Southold Militia Co. ISTo. 1. 

Early in life he is said to have been the academic teacher, and later to 
have taken up the profession of law. 

After the death of Col. Isaac Arnold, in 1706, he was the leading man in 
the town until his death in 1742. He lived in the old homestead, which he 
inherited from his father, on the south side of Main street, and next west 
of the residence of his xincle, Col. John Youngs, and from him it passed to 
his son-in-law Kobert Hempstead. He died intestate and his three sons-in-law 
were appointed administrators on his estate. He left no male descendants, 
but his daughters married three notable men. One of his great grandsons, 
Col. William Ledyard, was in command of Fort Griswold on Groton Heights 
when, on Sept. 6th, 1781, two regiments of the British troops under the traitor 
Benedict Arnold assailed the fort, and after suffering heavy loss overpowered 
the heroic defenders. Col. Ledyard surrendered his sword to the British officer, 
who, exasperated by such a dearly bought victory, ran him through the body 
with it and he fell mortally wounded. A general massacre took place and 
some of the brave defenders were put in barrels and rolled down the steep 
hill. More than twenty of the name and connections of Ledyard were engaged 
in this action.^

70 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

In 1712 he and his brother John were living on the farm at Aquebogue 
(which their mother-in-law inherited from her father Lieut. John Budd), and 
in that year entered into an agreement that after the death of their mother, 
John should have the land north of the Queens Eoad to the Sound, except a 
strip two rods wide on the east side of it, which should belong to Christopher, 
together with the land on the south side of the Queens Eoad extending to the 
Bay.* Christopher is said to have built on the site of the house (built in 
1800), owned in 1900 by George F. Wells, who married Mary Jane Youngs. 
In 1715 he was in the Southold Troop of Horse. 

He died intestate, and on Sept. 1, 1727, an inventory of his estate was 
taken, which included 30 head of neat cattle, 45 sheep, 4 horses, and Dec. 20, 
1728, his son Christopher was appointed administrator.f 

On the death of his widow in 1747/8 their son Christopher was appointed 
to administer on her estate. 

Their son Daniel is identified by his will proved in 1755. We find no 
record of they having other than these two children, although it is probable 
that they had.

John Youngs is in the census of 1698, next to John Griffin, with whom 
he was probably living and learning his trade. 

In the MSS. index of the Southold Town Eecords his name is given as 
"John Youngs f armer,"f f but in the matter recorded he is designated as "cord- 
winder" (shoemaker). May 21, 1708, he, "John Youngs cordwinder" sold 
meadowland in "Peconneck to David Parshall." ff 

On May 20, 1712, he and his brother Christopher signed an agreement as 
to how they should divide the land at Aquebogue, on which they then dwelt 
(extending from the Sound to the Bay), after their mother's decease, which

provided that John was to have the land from the Queens Koad north to 
the Sound, excepting a strip on the East side of it two rods wide, which should 
belong to Christopher, together with the land South of the Queens Road to the 
Bay.* 

The division was consummated sooner than provided, and in Mch., 
1723/4, John received a quit claim from his mother for his part,f and the 
same month sold 88 acres on the north part, and extending to the Sound, to 
Israel Parshall.| This left him the part bounded on the south by the Queens 
or South Road. 

In 1715 he was in Company No. 3 of the Southold Militia, James Reeve 
Captain. 

In 1731 he contributed to build a church at Aquebogue.§ His son David 
was probably named after his neighbor David Parshall.

on the north side of Town Street, before the latter's death; and this he ex- 
changed, in 1692, with Christopher Youngs (No. 26) for other lands. ^f 

In Jan., 1700, he bought of Hannah Darby and her sister Sarah Youngs 
land at Aquebogue between the Kings Highway and the Sound, bounded west 
by Christopher and John Youngs.^ He also made several sales of land.^j

captain of a vessel. His grandfather, Col. John Youngs, in his will bequeathed 
him six shillings. 

From his father he inherited the farm at West Neck (east of the "Moore" 
farm) where he lived. 

On May 5, 1719, he sold to his aunt Mary Lynds, late wife of his uncle 
Thomas Youngs, deceased, the Col. John Youngs homestead. || From 1718 to 
1723 he was sheriff of Suffolk County, Tf and in 1737 he was on the list of Free- 
holders. 

After the death of his aunt Deborah and her husband Thomas Long- 
worth, he came into possession of their home lot.** 

He died intestate and on Sept. 17, 1744, letters of administration were

Judge Joshua Youngs' name appears on a stone in the Sterling Cemetery 
(erected to the memory of his son Thomas Youngs, who died in 1793) as the 
son of Zerubbable, son of Col. John Youngs. This is the only record to show 

a Mary Youngs Landon's will, 21 Mch., 1799, not probated, now in possession of 
Mrs. G. W. Dayton of Southold, L. I., makes bequests to sister Bethiah Swetland;

86 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

that there was such a Zerubbable Youngs, and from the records of Joshua, as 
given under John No. 27, it evidently is an error. 

It doubtless happened partly because of the long lapse of time (one hun- 
dred and eight years from the death of Joshua's father to the death of his 
son Thomas), and partly because no family records had been preserved; but 
mainly because of an entry in the MSS. Southold Town Records, which they 
probably had seen, and which later Mr. Charles B. Moore in collecting the 
material for his Indexes of 1698 found, and which he says he read as "John 
Youngs sonn Zofossbel Yongs born the 16th of May 1664."* Supposing this 
to mean Zerubbable, he thought it confirmed the record on the stone, and 
placed him as the son of Col. John ; but when the town records were published 
and this entry read "John Yongs sonn to Joseph (Joseph instead of Zofoss- 
bel), Mr. Moore in his private copy of the Indexes struck out the birth date, 
and by an addition made Joshua to be the "son of Zrubbable or of John." 

In 1714, by the will of his uncle Thomas Youngs, he came into possession 
of the 500 acre farm at Sterling, where he lived and died. 

In 1715 he was in Militia Co. No. 3, and in 1737 he was on the list of 
Freeholders. 

In 1738 he succeeded Benjamin Youngs as a Judge of the Court of Com- 
mon Pleas4 

On 5 Feb., 1718/19, he bought of Robert Griffing for £70, "one halfe part 
of those four lots of land situate in ye second division of Acquabauk lands for- 
merly in ye right of John Swazey, late deceased," bounded north by the Sound, 
east by John Griffen, South by ye river or baye, and west by John Conkling."|f 

This farm remained in the family for several generations, and is now 
owned in part by John Parker Terry, with residence on the South Road. 

His will, 13 June, 1755, proved 3 July, 1755, names his wife Mary, bequeathing 
her his negro girl Jenny, and the use of his Aquebaug farm; son Thomas, bequeath- 
ing him the farm at Sterling, the Aquebaug farm after his wife's decease, and his 
silver tankard; daughters Mary Youngs, Elizabeth Vail and Bethiah Youngs, and 
granddaughter Mary Hazard, bequeathing them money.

Christopher Youngs was a farmer and inherited part of his father's farm 
at Aquebogue, L. I. In 1731 he subscribed to build the church at Aquebogue. 
In 1736/7 he sold land to John L'Hommedieu formerly belonging to his grand- 
father Nathaniel Moore. In 1737 he was on the list of Freeholders. After 
this he sold to his brother Daniel all or part of his farm (see will of his 
brother Daniel).

In 1749 he appears to have owned the land at Aquebogue, west of what 
was called Long Swamp, which had been in possession of his half-uncle Benja-

Israel Parshall to Jonathan Youngs.* 

In 1755 he was named in the will of his brother Daniel as executor. In

Rev. David Youngs graduated from Yale College in 1741. During that 
year a great revival occurred in the college under the preaching of Gilbert Ten- 
nant. Dr. Samuel Hopkins of Newport states that the members appeared to be 
unusually awakened, and several of them visited every room in the college and 
discoursed freely. The most zealous of these, he says, were Samuel Buell and 
David Youngs, his classmates, and David Brainard, but that Youngs excelled 
them in fervency of spirit and successful endeavors for the unconverted.* 
Brainard became the great missionary to the Indians, and Buell, the patriotic 
minister of Easthampton, L. I. 

A letter to him from William Grant, shows that prior to his graduation 
he was interested in revival meetings held at the house of Henry Havens on 
Shelter Island. 

On May 13, 1742, he read a Latin thesis before a voluntary convention at 
Hartford, Conn., and he, "Mr. David Youngs of Long Island," was licensed

to preach the Gospel.* This thesis bears his signature, but he abbreviated his 
given name, and it reads "Da. Youngs."* 



"^a,. y*~~ft 



On Oct. 12, 1742, he was ordained pastor of the Presbyterian Church at 
Setauket, Brookhaven, L. I. A paper in his handwriting contains the "Profes- 
sion of Faith," "The Covenant," a list of 42 members before his time, and of 
55 additions in his time.* 

He was their third pastor, and for ten years, until his death on the 18th of 
April, 1752, at the age of thirty-three, he ministered unto this people. 

Setauket lies at the head of Setauket Harbor, and was the largest village 
in the township. It is situated on the north side of the island and was named 
from the Scatalcott tribe of Indians, who formerly occupied that territory. 
For many years it was the seat of government for Brookhaven. 

The place was settled by a party of emigrants from Boston, Mass., in 1655, 
and a meeting house 28 feet square was built there about 1671, and in 1715 a 
new one was erected upon the same site, on the east side of the "green" in the 
old burying ground. The interior, as was common in those days, was without 
"ceiling or plaster." This structure remained until 1811 when it was replaced 
by the present one on the same site. It was of the Presbyterian denomination 
and connected with the Presbytery of Long Island. 

Across the fields, perhaps a quarter of a mile eastward from the Presby- 
terian Church, stands the old parsonage in a quiet retreat near the harbor. 
This was built according to the record of the order "upon the land that was 
Goodman Moger's" and also set apart "to remain a parsonage house to per- 
petuity." It remained as such until 1874 when a new one was built near the 
church. 

Here was the place where our zealous young minister performed the labors 
of his short life.f Settlements were springing up around it, and it was a center 
of activity at that time. 

It was his custom to write out quite full sketches of his sermons on six 
leaves of paper 2 1 / 4: inches wide by 4 inches long, which made a little book of 
12 pages. On the first page a margin was left, on which he noted the places 
where he preached them, and often the dates were given. From the dozen of 
these sermons which have been preserved we learn the character of his 
preaching. 

The wrath of God, the terrors of hell and the awful doom of the damned 
held a prominent place in the preaching of that period, and we find that on

two occasions he preached from the text, "There shall be weeping and gnashing 
of teeth/' Luke 13 : 28, in which he says, "that the damned in hell shall have 
such apprehension of the saints' happiness in heaven as shall dreadfully aggra- 
vate their own eternal misery." But it was the love of God that he delighted 
to tell of, and it was from such texts as : — "But it is good for me to draw near 
to Christ," Psalms 73 : 28; "He that hath the Son hath Life/' 1st John 20 : 
13; "For Christ also once suffered for sins the just for the unjust," 1 Pet. 
3:18; "This is my beloved Son, hear ye him," Matt. 17 : 5 ; "But he that is 
joined unto the Lord, is one Spirit," 1 Cor. 6:17; and "That I may cause 
those that love me to inherit substance," Pro. 8 : 21," that he was continually 
preaching. 

Four of these sermons he delivered in nineteen separate places, and we 
find memoranda of his having preached in "Brookhaven, Smithtown, Milford, 
South Milford, Old Man, Haucabok, Oyster Pond, Cutchogue and Huntington. 

The last date given is Nov., 1751, when he preached to his own Church 
from Psalms 73 : 28, and perhaps it was his last message to them. 

His funeral sermon was preached from Heb. xiii. by the Bev. Napthali 
Dagget, then pastor of Smithtown, afterwards President of Yale College, and 
the original manuscript of it is now on file in the College with the date of his 
death (April 18th, 1752) endorsed upon it. Turning to this old sermon of a 
century and a half ago, we learn that he was worthy to take up the mantle that 
his ancestors Bev. Christopher and Bev. John Youngs laid down. 

His friend Bev. Jonathan Barber, in a letter of condolence to his widow, 
dated Oyster Pond, May 4th, 1752, said, "A few days ago I received a letter 
which was wrote by your dear Husband Deceased when he was in Killingworth 
and as I cannot now pay the Debt of writing to him I thought I would send 
you a few lines," etc. 

At the installation of his successor (Bev. Benjamin Tallmadge) the Bev. 
Mr. Brown, of Bridgehampton, in his charge to the people referred to the 
Bev. David Youngs as "your late pious and worthy pastor whose praise is 
still in the churches."* 

No stone marks his grave, for during the Bevolution a company of British 
soldiers occupied the church and cast up earthworks in the graveyard, and 
all the headstones were destroyed.* 

Among his papers was the following receipt :— "New York, July 15th 
1746, Beceived from The Bevd. David Youngs by the hands of Mr. Edward 
King Two pounds, Ten shillings in full of all Demand £2. 10. 

(Signed) Theod" Van Wtck." 

On June 25th, 1752, Letters of Administration on his estate were granted 
to his widow Bethiah.

A few years after his death his widow Bethiah became the second wife 
of Judge Benjamin Halsey of Morristown, N. Y., who also had a family of 
young children. She took her four children there and they grew up and mar- 
ried in New Jersey. The eldest, David, returned to Moriches, Long Island, 
after the close of the Revolutionary War. By her second husband she had one 
child, Benjamin, who died at Newton, N". J., at the age of about 90. He had 
the Bible of the Bev. David Yoxmgs containing his family record and from 
him it passed into the possession of his daughter Emily, who married Col. John 
ISTyce of Hawley, Pa. Since she died all trace of it has been lost. 

She wrote to Alfred Vail of Morristown, N. J., as follows : 

Nyces, Pike Co., Pa., Aug. 5, 1858. 
Dear Cousin: — 

I received your letter last week concerning my father and grandparents' 
families. I will send you a copy of the record in a Bible that I presume was your 
great grandfather's, the Rev. David Youngs. I shall spell it just as it is written in 
the record.

ABSTRACT FROM LETTER OF WILLIAM GRANT. 

Orphan House, Georgia, July 29th 1743. 
Dear Mr. Youngs, — 

I have oft thought and spoke of you, Especially When I remember your par- 
ticular Love to me on Shelter Island. ... I believe you 'have not forgot the 



96 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Young Man that Kept School at Mr. Jonathan Havens Senr., who you was so kind 
(no doubt out of regard to my soul) to Invite to the Society at Henry Havens a little 
before you left the Island. I having shund yours and others of the Godleys Com- 
pany for some time, you deesird I might read the 10th Chap to the Hebrews, and I 
think from the 23rd verse to the end. ... I Joined with my Companions to 
Contemn and Ridicule you. . . . Went to Rhode Island and so to Sea. . . . 
Providence brought me to Philida., where with other Curious Hearers I was under 
the Preaching of dear Mr. Whitfield (about 1640), brought under Conviction again. 
I came with his family to Georgia, having been here some time. ... I saw your 
letter when it first came to Dear Bro. Barber. ... I wrote to Jonathan Terry. 
■. . . I hear he is converted, My love to him and his dear wife and to the 
Deacon and his fimaly To Patience Havens and Husband, Henry Havens and his 
wife— to the woman that lives next Plantation to the Deacons on ye Right Hand. 
She used to tell me about Christ. You will doubtless see them not long after you 
receive this. Sometimes I find my heart much drawn out to the Children of God 
on Oyster Ponds, My love to them all. . . . Your Bro. in the Lord, William 
Grant." 

Had William Grant known the parents of David Youngs he probably 
would have mentioned them in the above letter. 

Abstract of Funeral Sermon on Rev. David Youngs by Eev. Naphali 

Dagget. 

By the strength of a good natural genius without any great opportunity of 
improving in knowledge, he arrived at such an insight into Spiritual things as to 
be justly esteemed a judicious Divine. His natural temper, which was sweetened 
by Divine Grace, seemed to be a little fountain of Love. 

Benevolence and Friendship continually flowed out and refreshed all around 
him. He well knew how to be friendly in any case, and had a disposition that 
was equal to his knowledge; he was y© faithfullest of friends. 

God designed him to plead ye cause of Truth and Righteousness; and how 
happily he was accomplished for this glorious employ. But few could plead the 
cause of God with equal skill and to so good purpose as he could. Indeed he no 
ways sought to please the ear of the polite and curious; he scorned all endeavors 
to please and gratify a vain curiousity. His ambition was too noble, and heavenly 
to let him stoop to so mean and worthless an employ; he had much rather affect 
and reach the heart than amuse and please the ear; and in this all knew he had 
uncommon skill. His great end and aim was to profit, edify and save precious souls 
which he so dearly loved, and in this most noble employ, God gave him an eminent 
faculty. How often have greatest sinners trembled and been pricked to ye heart 
while he has thundered the terrors of the Law in their ear, although without any 
angry tone, or any of that unholy zeal which arises from a morose and hasty 
natural temper, How often have they felt their stubborn hearts melted down 
while the invitation and Grace of the Gospel have flowed from him with irresistable 
influence. How skilled: was he to speak a word in season to every case the believer 
or the sinner could be in; here certainly he well knew how to- divide ye word 
aright and give to every one a portion in due season. And how faithful, how pain- 
ful and laborious' was he in his important business; How well did he fulfil that 



FIFTH GENERATION. 97 

part of his charge, to be instant in season and out of season, and to exhort and 
warn every man daily, and from house to house! What a constant enemy was he 
to all vice. And! how faithfully did he oppose every appearance of evil at 
all times; in all places and in all sorts of Company! He was a living preacher. 
How harmless, meek, heavenly and inoffensive was his whole behavior. His 
Christian conversation daily inforced all his exhortations. How justly may we 
here apply to him what the apostles say of themselves. 1 Thess. 2.10. "You are 
witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably he behaved himself 
among you." So that ye contrary party by reason of his unblameable conduct and 
their candour, had no evil thing to say of him. How patient was he under ail 
abuses and affronts! The servant of the Lord must not strive; and he had that 
qualification to an eminent degree. He had that noble revenge of forgiving in- 
juries, and overcoming enemies by love. This meekness did not flow from mean 
cowardice, for he was bold as a lion in ye cause of God. In spite of envy he must 
be allowed to be a faithful exemplary man in the relation of a minister, a husband, 
a father, a neighbor, a friend and every other relation which he sustained-, and in 
a word we may, we must give him the highest praise that ever was given to any 
mortal any say that he was, without any reasonable doubt, an eminently pious saint. 
How has he spoken the word of God to you from this awful desk. When you 
cast your eyes, and look there, beloved, on his speechless corps, you can't but re- 
member how that man has preached to you.

Bailey and Joseph Prince, with one male over 50, one under 16, three females 
over 16, and one under 16, years in his family. 

In 1775 he signed to support Congress. On 16 Sept., 1784, he gave a

1 Rev. Ezra King, b. 24 July, 1784; m. Lydia Youngs. (See her 
record.) 

Joseph Youngs and Hannah his wife must have been known by Augustus 
Griffin, who in his MSS. records states that "she was the grandmother of 
Rev. Ezra King." 

They were probably visiting at Mattituck, L. I., when on 3 Meh., 1754, 
they "owned the covenant," and had their daughter Hannah baptized.^" 

In the will of his brother Jeremiah Youngs, date 3 Dec, 1757, he is 
named as executor. 

In 1775 he was living in Orient (Oyster Ponds), L. I., between Zebulon 
and Asa King,* and in 1776 he was on the census list, with one male over 50, 
one over 16, and two females over 16 in his family.f 

In 1776, he was in Capt. Bailey's Company of Minute Men,$ and after 
the Battle of Long Island he fled to Connecticut, and on 12 June, 1777, he 
signed the Saybrook petition for relief. § 

From 1784 to 1787, as Joseph Youngs, Senr., he had an account with 
David Conkling, merchant of Southold, L. I.|| 

His will, dated Islip, L. L, 30 July, 1793, proved 18 Meh., 1715, names 
wife Hannah, giving her household furniture, the use of one room, and use of 
one-third of lands; daughter Hannah King, £30. To Son Joseph, lands, 
buildings, farming utensils, &c.

Judge Thomas Youngs was liberally educated and became one of the 
leading men of his time in Southold. After his death a unique and beautiful 
stone (see illustration) was erected to his memory in Sterling Cemetery, but, 
unfortunately, no family records of his ancestors, if kept, had been preserved, 
and the name of Zerubbable in his line of descent, as given on the stone, seems 
to have been an error. (For explanation, see John No. 27, and Joshua No. 76.) 

Prom his father he inherited the farm at "Occobock," and the five hun- 
dred acre farm, and large manor house, on Sterling Creek, at Sterling (now 
Greenport), L. I., where he resided until his death. 

He entered Yale College and graduated in 1741, after which he devoted 
himself to the management of his large estate. 

On 29 Sept., 1762, he was appointed, by George III., Assistant Judge of 
the Superior Court of Common Pleas. || On 2 Apl., 1775, he was one of the 
sub-committee of three at Sag Harbor, who sent a request to Congress for 
cannon and ammunition, ^f At the same place, 15 Feb., 1776, he was chairman 
of the Committee of Safety, and sent a map of the east end of Long Island 
to Congress.f 

In 1776, he was on the census list with 5 males, 5 females, and 3 slaves 
in his family. On 19 Dec, 1777, by order of Col. Hulet, of the British army, 
he was arrested at Southold, together with Christopher Brown and Eufus 
Tuthill, charged with having given information to, and harboring rebels. 
They were confined in the Provost Goal, New York. In 1778, they petitioned 
General Eoberson for release, denying the charges, and later were released. J 
After this he was compelled by the British to assist in supplying forage. 

On May 30, 1780, he signed the appeal sent out by the Senate and 
Assembly of New York in a circular letter, asking a loan to the State in sub- 
scriptions of not less than five hundred dollars each, to improve the condition 
and increase the efficiency of the army.§ 

In 1784, he was elected to the State Assembly. He was a member of 
the Presbyterian Churcb, and his letters to his daughters show that he was a 
devout man and very considerate of his family. J 

His will, 3 Feb., 1793, names his wife and all his children, bequeathing 
the real estate to his four sons, and £40 each to Thomas and Joshua, for the 
purpose of their giving one son each a college education.

Isaac Youngs is doubtless the one whose name is in the Horton account 
book, April 10, 1768, as Isaac Youngs of the Township of Fairfield, Conn.,$ 
and also in the Day Book of David Conkling, merchant of Southold, L. I., 
April, 1768, as Isaac Youngs Junior. § 

Feb. 15th, 1762, there is mention of Isaac Young, of Fairfield, freemason, 
and he probably removed there about the time of his marriage. 

His father died in May, 1768, which accounts for his being in Southold 
about that time, and also again in 1769, the year of his mother's death. The 
baptism of his son as "Richard Tubal," is doubtless an error in the name, as it 
evidently should be "Richard Hubbell," after the child's grandfather. 

On Dec. 4, 1784, he was appointed to administer on the estate of Mary 
Youngs, widow of Joseph Youngs, late of Fairfield, Conn., deceased, repre- 
sented as insolvent.*

Benjamin (and his brother Seth) removed from Connecticut to Schenec- 
tady, N. Y., where he lived some thirty-five years, following the occupation 
of silversmith. 

In 1767, he was in Capt. Nicholas Groots' Company of Militia.t In 
1806, he removed with his family to Watervliet, N. Y., where they all joined 
the Shaker Community. 

A number of tall clocks, which he made, are now in possession of the 
Shakers. 

His only grandchild (and last descendant), was Alexander (son of Alex- 
ander Youngs and Mary Elizabeth Damph), who was an honored member of 
the Shakers. 

In the back of an account book, which he kept while a silversmith, is 
his family record, extending back to the Eev. John Youngs. This book he 
gave to his grandson Alexander, who gave it to its present owner, Isaac 
Anstall, of Shakers, N.Y.J

to return. 

Elizabeth was an Eldress in the South Family. 

Henry and Isaac were transferred to the Community at Mount Lebanon. ||

John Youngs removed from Connecticut to Balston, 1ST. Y. He enlisted in 
the Kevolutionary War at Balston, and served as a private and sergeant under 
Capt. Collins and Col. White. 

After the close of the war, in 1788, he received a land warrant, and settled 
on the Military tract, Lot 62, Town of Manlius, 1ST. Y. 

It was then an unbroken forest, and he was the first settler in that part 
of the town. 

As his sons grew up they settled around him and the place for some years 
was called Youngsville. When a post office was established there in 1814 it 
was changed to Orville.

He was a justice of the peace, a member of the first masonic lodge known 
as Military Lodge No. 93, and mainly instrumental in the organization of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, to which he gave the land for a building. 

The records of his descendants have been furnished by his granddaughter 
Mrs. Cordelia Youngs Willard. 

Mrs. Willard also composed the following ballad which was sung on the 
one hundredth anniversary of the establishment of Onondaga County. 

1794— CENTENNIAL, SONG— 1894. 
Air, "Auld Lang Syne." 



Should old-time memories be forgot 

And never brought to mind, 
Should olden friendships fade away 

With days of auld lang syne? 
Chorus — 
For love of olden times, good friends; 

For love of kindred dear; 
For love of native heath and home, 

We'll keep this hundredth year. 

From Onondaga's fertile vales, 

From hills of purple hue 
We come with songs and legends old 

To keep the day with you. 
Fair city, set around by hills 

With emerald beauty crowned, 
The pride of daughters and of sons' 

Wherever they are found. 

Our grand sires chose this favored spot 

Without a thought in mind 
Of railroads or of telegraphs 

That now our cities bind. 
And Erie's placid winding course 

Was planned and made complete, 
When Clinton was the Governor 

And ruled the Empire State. 

We call to mind from distant years 
Quaint legends, now of yore, 



When training days and ginger-bread 

Were like a feast galore; 
When pockets with a shilling lined, 

And heads with straw hat crowned, 
They trudged on foot five miles or more 

To reach the training ground. 

Oh! Halcyon days of memory, 

With tints of roseate light, 
When "quilting frolics," "husking bees," 

Were hailed with pure delight; 
When mothers wrought at loom and wheel, 

And daughters shared the toil, 
And boys were happy and content 

To cultivate the soil. 

I 

The shuttle of the loom is still, 

The wheel is set aside; 
And busy hands are resting now 

That toiled 'till eventide. 
Their names are carved on marble pure 

Beside the hill-side way, 
And stars keep watch above, the while 

They sleep the years away. 
Chorus — 
For love of olden times, good friends, 

For love of kindred dear; 
For love of native heath and home 
We'll keep this hundredth year.

solemn, yet pleasing in manner/'* 

He was not educated for the ministry, but became impressed that it was 
his duty to preach the Gospel, and was ordained in 1783. He was a man of 
considerable powers and influence, and was at the head of his denomination on 
Long Island. His reasoning was strong, his language forcible and often 
sublime.f He died in the 38th year of his ministry, and the 33rd of his 
pastorate of the Aquebogue Church.* By his father's will he inherited the 
farm at Aquebogue. In 1775, he engaged to support Congress.^ In 1776, he

Village died December 24th 1801. He was the son of Mr. Nathaniel Youngs who 
was the owner of the house and farm now (1858) in possession of Richard Peters." 
Mr. Griffin is in error. It was John Fitz Youngs who died in 1801. The death of 
this John Youngs is given in the Suffolk Gazette as follows: "At Southold March 11, 
1809, Mr. John Youngs aged 47 years." || Nathaniel Youngs owned the property 
south of Col. John Youngs and lost it on a mortgage to Ezra L'Hommedieu, but 
perhaps he did own the Col. John Youngs place also.

Captain Daniel Youngs was brought up by his uncle, Thomas Youngs, 
.and at his death inherited the "Old Homestead' and farm at Cove Neck. It 
is related that he was a terror to the Hessian soldiers (who were stationed at 
Oyster Bay during the Bevolution), after their first attempt to steal juice 
from his cider press.* He was a Captain of Militia before the Bevolution, 
and in 1776 signed to support Congress, but after the Battle of Long Island 
and the British were in possession, he, like others, who did not enter the 
Continental Army or flee the Island, was compelled to take the oath of 
allegiance and act under British orders. On April 23, 1790, when on his 
tour through Long Island, Washington stopped at his home over night, and 
made this entry of it in his diary, "proceeding to Oyster Bay, to the house of 
Capt. Daniel Young, at the Cove, private and very neat and decent, where 
we lodged." His daughter Kezia, then a blooming girl of seventeen years, 
was favored with a hearty kiss by the General on his departure. Captain 
Daniel's wife survived him nearly forty years, and often related how she 
•entertained "The Father of his Country."f

near Greenport. It adjoined the farm of Major Calvin Moore, on the west, 
and extended to the Bay. In 1782, he mortgaged it to Mcoll Havens for 
£290, his wife Mehetable signing with him,* and before 1810, after being in 
the family for five generations, it was in possession of David Fanning.* In 
1775 he engaged to support Congress,f and in 1776 he was on the census 
list with one male, two females, and six children in his family. J He was in 
lieut. Joshua Young's Company of Militia,§ and after the Battle of Long 
Island, he fled to Connecticut, and on June 12, 1777, signed the Saybrook 
petition to Congress for relief. || After his death his widow lived with her 
daughter Mehetable, and her grandson David Billard writes of hearing her 
tell of a large painting of a Youngs ancestor in uniform hanging in their 
house, and of how during the Eevolutionary War, when the British landed 
there, they on entering their house and seeing the portrait of an officer, saluted 
it, and retired without molesting them. 

After the death of John Fitz Youngs, his son John came down from 
Coxsackie, 1ST. Y., and took the painting home with him, and had the head 
repainted on a panel. The granddaughter of John Fitz Young, Mehetable, 
daughter of William Youngs, was brought up by her uncle John Youngs in 
Coxsackie, and states that she saw the portrait, and that it was the likeness 
of a man painted on canvas, about four feet square, and very much defaced, 
and that she heard her uncle John say that "it ought to be taken care of for 
there was a legacy for the heirs." After the death of her uncle John, who 
left no son, his nephew and executor, Jacob Armstrong, when he removed to 
Ohio, nailed the portrait over a box of goods, and it was lost. The board 
having the head painted on it became warped and split, and was sent to the 
garret. The painting was probably a portrait of Col. John Youngs.

Deacon Thomas Youngs lived on the farm at Aquebogue near Eiverhead, 
until the death of his father in 1793, when he removed to the farm at Sterling. 
He was a deacon of the church at Aquebogue, and seven of his children were 
baptized there.§ He bought out his brothers' interest in the farm at Sterling, 
and so possessed the entire tract and spent the remainder of his life there. 
His wife Lydia, daughter of John and Eebecca (Lambert) Tuthill, inherited 
from her father a farm at Oysterponds, which Thomas exchanged with his 
brother John for his share in the Sterling farm. In 1775, he signed to sup- 
port Congress. II His will, June 8, 1814, proved Mch. 15, 1816, names his wife 
and eight children, and leaves his estate to them, and the farm, which had 
remained intact through five generations, was divided up, and in 1892 was 
owned by eight of his descendants and six others.

Eev. Seth Young was a minister of the Gospel in the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, and traveled long circuits in sparsely settled districts. 

He acquired his education mainly by studying on horseback, while taking 
those long lonely rides. 

a Mrs. Cordelia Young Willard is one of the noted women of her time, in 
connection with mission work. A graduate of Cozenovia Seminary and highly 
educated, she has devoted a large part of her time in organizing and as President 
in conducting the work of the "Woman's Foreign Missionary Society" and the 
"Woman's Home Missionary Work" of the City, District, and Central N. Y. Con- 
ference of the M. E. Church. 

It was her suggestion and mainly by her efforts that the "Peck Memorial 
Home" in New Orleans was built for the education of the colored girls. 

Of a poetic temperament, she sees the ideal in all that makes for good, and 
often interprets it in poems, for those who are near to her, or for special occasions. 

Her lovely Christian character and life has been a joy and a benediction, not 
/onlly to her home circle, but to a host of friends, and it surely was a "Golden 
Wedding" day that a few years since marked the fifty years of her wedded life. 

It is to her love of the Youngs family that the descendants of her great 
grandfather Seth Young are indebted, for the memories and records of the past 
and present generations of that branch, as inscribed in these pages. (See portrait.)

NEE CORDELIA YOUNG 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 157 

His daughter Cordelia recalls him, as a middle-sized man, quiet and 
dignified, hut tender and affectionate to his family. On the land in Orville, 
N. Y., which he inherited from his father, he erected the homestead in which 
he lived, and which is now in possession of his daughter Mrs. Cordelia Y. 
Willard. 

His family was not only a well educated, but a talented one, each having 
some special gift, such as painting, teaching, poetry, etc. All of them were' 
musical, making a double quartette, and on Saturday evenings they rehearsed 
for the service of the coming Sabbath ; but best of all was the bond of affection 
that united them, and which time and change have not weakened.

Stephen Young was born at Malapardis, near Whippany, N. J., on a 
farm which later he inherited from his father, and on which he lived 
for nearly ninety-three years. He was a farmer, carpenter and builder, and 
also owned a saw mill. He was large of stature, of fine presence, genial in 
disposition, and for his strict integrity and fairness, he was held in high 
esteem by all who knew him. He joined the First Presbyterian Church of 
Morristown, June 27, 1808, and was elected an elder in 1812.* He knew 
all of the children and grandchildren of his grandfather, Eev. David Youngs, 
and kept full records of his descendants. He was the first of that branch to 
drop the final "s" from his surname. Nearly twenty years before his death 
he hunted up the descendants of his uncle, David Youngs, who had returned 
to Long Island, the native place of the Youngs, and together with his cousin, 
Capt. Selah Youngs, had the inscription re-cut on the altar tomb of their 
ancestor, Eev. John Youngs, of Southold, L. I. During the Civil War he was 
intensely patriotic and a warm supporter of President Lincoln. The author, 
when on a visit, took a walk about his farm with him after he had passed 
his ninety-first year. His Bible record shows that he dropped the final "s" 
from his name about 1831, and thereafter wrote it "Young." He was full 
of years, honored and beloved, when he took his departure.

Aunt Elizabeth, in Darien. She lost her sister Keziah, her father (Frederick) and 
her mother, and later her brother Collins Smith Youngs, who died in Aug., the year 
the letter was written. She tells that "Uncle Luther Youngs, papa's brother, was 
on to see us four years ago from Buffalo." Collins Smith Youngs sold his farm, 
except five acres, on which he built a house, where he lived with his sisters until 
he died. She inquires after the families of "Capt. George Wallace and William 
Capes, married to papa's cousins." These two gentlemen married the only daugh- 
ters of Phebe Carter.*

Capt. Jeremiah Youngs was the favorite of his two bachelor uncles William 
and Samuel Youngs, and when seventeen years of age he inherited from them 
a fine farm of one hundred acres with buildings thereon, in Orient. He was 
captain of the militia company, and in the summer of 1814, when Commodore 
Decatur's fleet of three ships, the United States, Macedonian, and Hornet, lay 
at anchor in Long Island Sound, opposite Truman's Beach near Brown's Hills, 
he visited the flag ship and presented the Commodore with a fine sheep.f

Kichard Youngs owned the farm near Orient Point that belonged to 
the Henry Youngs who died in 1775, and doubtless was his son. The original 
will of his grandfather Eichard Youngs, the miller, is also in the possession 
of his descendants. Griffin is evidently in error, in the surviving child of 
Henry being named Frances.*

John I. Youngs learned the trade of tanner and shoemaker in Greenport, 
L. I., and soon after removed to New Baltimore, N. Y., where he followed his 
trade and acquired considerable property. Later he kept a tavern and finally 
retired upon a farm. 

On the death of his father he visited his native place and took home with 
him the old ancestral portrait, a cane with an ivory handle and a silver ferule 
on which was an inscription. They both probably belonged to Col. John 
Youngs. 

He told his niece, Mehetable Youngs, whom he brought up, that the por- 
trait "ought to be taken care of for there was a legacy for the heirs."* This 
seems to be the foundation of the tradition that there was a fortune left in 
England by some of the family. His nephew, Jonathan Andrew Youngs, who 
also was brought up by him, attempted to learn more about it, but without 
success. 

His will, proved 1847, names wife Rachel and daughters Rachel Ann and 
Susan Mary. After his death, Jacob Armstrong, one of his executors, on re- 
moving West nailed the portrait over a box of goods and it was lost.*

James Youngs was a farmer, and also in the produce and fish business. 
He lived in the house his mother moved to about 1807. It was in the western

Sterling, L. I., and resided on it until ahout 1850, when he sold it to D. G-. 
Floyd and removed to Pen Yan, N. Y., where he bought a flour mill. Later 
he sold the mill and bought a small farm at Dresden, 1ST. Y. 

In 1853, he and his wife and several of their children united with the 
Presbyterian Church there. He was a man of lovable nature, and too mind- 
ful of others for his own good. The author's mother loved to visit them before 
they left Greenport, and their daughter Mary was her particular friend.

925 vii Amelia S., 9 res. Cutchogue, L. L, 1906. 

Kev. Ezra Youngs was born on the farm at Aquebogue, L. I. He 
graduated from the College of New Jersey in 1815, and from Andover 
Theological Seminary in 1820. On June 4, 1819, he united with the church 
at Southold, and was licensed by Andover and received by the Presbytery of 
Long Island at Sag Harbor August 27, 1823. 

He preached for some time on Shelter Island, where he married his 
wife, who was a descendant of Mathias Nieoll, Mayor of New York in 1672, 
and first secretary of the Province of New York. On the 27th of August, 
1828, he was ordained at Cutchogue as pastor of the Presbyterian Church, and 
for forty-eight years, until the close of his life, he faithfully served that con- 
gregation. When the author first knew him, fifty years ago, he was a striking 
figure, with his clear, blue eyes, and snow-white hair falling down over his 
collar. (See portrait.)

1906. She has furnished most of the records of the descend- 
ants of her great-grandfather, Thomas Youngs. 

Jacob Youngs by his father's will inherited part of the 500-acre farm at 
Sterling (Greenport), L. L, and he resided upon it and bequeathed it to his 
children. 

In 1833 he was one of the fourteen trustees who organized the Presby- 
terian Church in Greenport, and was an elder in it for fifty-three years, helping 
to officiate when over 93 years of age. He survived all of the original number 
save one, and died after a brief illness. 

In early life he taught school and was a clerk in a store, but afterwards 
settled down as a farmer on the paternal estate. During the War of 1812 he 
went with his Company to Sag Harbor, L. I., but procured a substitute and 
did not enter the service.

ligious convictions, and for twenty years was a deacon of the Congregational 
Church of Orient. He brought up a large family who, following in his foot-

made remarkable records. His eldest daughter, Mrs. Blmira Tuthill, is now 
serving her fifty-second year as President of the Ladies' Society, and as a

Rev. Erasmus Darwin Young received a common school education in his 
native village. After the death of his father, his mother with her seven 
children removed near to the village of Birmingham, Mich. About 1842, he 
married and purchased a farm. In 1845 his young wife and child died, and 
he gladly accepted an invitation of a friend to visit his field of missionary 
work among the Indians. This led to his being installed as teacher in an 
Indian school, and three years later he was appointed missionary in charge 
of the Kazier Indian Mission at Ne-be-Sing (place of water) in Lapur Co., 
Mich. 

The tribe were the Ojibways, who had come from Canada. In 1847 he 
married Miss Mary Johnson, and they learned the Indian language, and 
labored there for eight years. For some years after this he had appointments 
where he had educational advantages for his children. He then returned, 
for three years, to mission work among the Chippewas and Ottawas on a 
reservation near Saganaw Bay. Although he found the Indians ignorant and 
superstitious, he did not find it difficult to impress them with gospel truths, 
especially the Chippewas. He belonged to the Michigan Conference of the 
Methodist Episcopal Church, and for the following twenty-six years his work 
was among the churches of that State. After forty-six years of uninterrupted 
labor, his health became impaired, and in 1889, at his request he was placed 
on the retired list, "and now life's pilgrimage ended, they rest in the Lord."*

Eev. Christopher Young on March 11th, 1826, at the age of seventeen, 
united with the Congregational Church at Bating Hollow, L. I., and soon 
after this he, with others, planned and started the first Sabbath School in 
that church. On each Lord's Day he brought the library in his arms four 
miles on foot. Without the advantages of a college or seminary course, he 
studied the higher English branches, the languages and theology, and was 
licensed on Oct. 22nd, 1829, and ordained in July, 1830. 

His principal places of labor were Frankfort and Wantage, N. J., and 
Bating Hollow, L. I. The last fifteen years of his fifty-five years' ministry 
were spent in the latter place, during which time a new parsonage and 
church were erected. 

His wife was truly a help-meet, and together they labored, and saw their 
golden wedding day and four years more ere he was called to his reward.

Capt. David Young when a boy was put out to learn the blacksmith's 
trade, at Bridgehampton, L. I., but when his apprenticeship was at an end, 
the whaling business offered better opportunities, and he went to sea as a 
common sailor. 

He rose rapidly, and in ten years was captain of the ship "Henry/' in 
which he made two voyages, and having gained a competency, he retired. In 
1844 he removed to Jefferson, 1ST. Y., where his two aunts and brother Edward 
were living, and bought a farm, on which he spent the remainder of his life. 
About the time he removed to Jefferson he dropped the final s from his 
name. 

He was a man of unblemished character, and a prominent member of 
the Methodist Church.

Capt. Selah Youngs when a boy was put out to Squire Theophilus Smith, 
a farmer of Moriches, L. I., and removed with him to Easthampton, L. I. 

When fourteen years of age he was apprenticed to Deacon Chapman 
Eogers, of Sag Harbor, and for seven years lived in his family, and learned the 
hatter's trade. During these seven years he attended night school, and ob- 
tained a fair education. 

The whaling business at that time offered the best opportunity for ambi- 
tious young men, and on June 23, 1832, soon after becoming of age, he sailed 
before the mast on the ship "Delta," of Greenport, L. I., on a whaling voyage 
at the 150th lay. He made other voyages on her and on the "Gem," the 
"Daniel Webster," the "Bomulus" and the "Hamilton," of Sag Harbor. In 
ten years he had made eight voyages, and risen through all the under grades of 
officers. His ninth voyage was made as captain of the ship "Harvest," at 
the 16th lay. We quote two entries from his log book: "1842, July 21, 
Thursday, left Bridgeport in the Harvest, all hands on board, 22 in all." . . . 
"Dec, 23, 1843. 531 days out. Lat. 37.30. Long. 68.00. Two last whales 
and full Bark. No. 33, whale 70 bbls, No. 34, whale, 70 bbls, strong W. wind, 
Steering to the Northeast. At 1 P. M. saw 2 whales. Madey struck one Mr. 
Brooks killed, (the whale) I struck the other, took both alongside and com- 
menced cutting just as the sun rose in the morning, both good whales and 
enough to fill everything full. So we took our departure for home. Good 
speed to the Harvest."

In August, 1844, he sailed from Bridgeport, Conn., as captain of the 
ship "Steiglitz" with a crew of twenty-seven men. It was a large ship, 118 
feet long and 25 feet broad, and carried five thousand barrels of oil. In the 
first year out they encountered a typhoon that partly dismantled the ship, 
and they made the port of Sidney, 1ST. S. W., leaking one hundred and 
twenty-five strokes an hour. 

Three months were required for repairs and the laborers were paid 
weekly. New South Wales was at that time an English penal colony, and 
each Saturday Capt. Youngs walked from the consul's office to the ship with 
a bag of gold in one hand and a revolver in the other. 

When ready to resume the voyage part of the crew deserted, and a 
reward was offered for their return. Some of them were tracked with blood- 
hounds by the natives and brought back, and the crew was made up by taking 
ex-convicts whose terms had expired. When at sea these latter mutinied and 
seven of them were put in the hold in irons, but no blood was shed. 

In this voyage he circumnavigated the globe, rounding both capes Horn 
and Good Hope, and visited many lands and islands, some of which were still 
in a state of barbarism. After an absence of fifty-two months he returned 
with a full shipload and a profitable cargo. When second mate of the ship 
"Daniel Webster," in which he owned a share, its captain, Stratton Harlow, 
was killed by a whale off the coast of Chili, and the first mate, Edward M. 
Baker, took command. The feeling of the crew was intense for abandoning 
the voyage, and for over a week neither Mr. Baker or Mr. Youngs, either 
night or day, left the deck at the same time, and in after years Capt. Baker 
spoke in highest praise and appreciation of Capt. Youngs' courage in support- 
ing him in completing the voyage under such trying circumstances. 

He was a constant reader of the Bible, and during these voyages he read 
it through consecutively at least three times, and could turn to almost any 
passage from memory. 

Having acquired what for those times was a competency, and desiring to 
be with his family, he retired from the sea at the early age of forty. 

He owned a house on Main street, Sag Harbor, but on October 16th, 
1849, he bought a farm of 180 acres at Mapes Neck, Mattituck, L. I., bordering 
for a mile on Mattituck Bay, and to this beautiful spot, where nature had 
assembled land and sky and water in lovely combination, he took his family, 
and here his children grew up. a 

a Mapes Neck took its name from its first white owner, Thomas Mapes. It 
was part of a tract of 500 acres extending from the Sound to Peconic Bay, and was 
his share in the "Occabauck Divident" laid out by the town in 1661. (Southold 
Town Rec, i. pp. 108, 350-2.) This locality was a favorite hunting and fishing 
ground of the Indians, and many arrow heads have been found here. Thomas 
Mapes' son Jabez was the first white man to settle upon it, and he was succeeded

EIGHTH GENERATION. 241 

For nearly forty-seven years (except for a short voyage in 1852 as 
captain of the bark "Odd Fellow," at the fourteenth lay) he lived the quiet 
happy life of a farmer. After 1865, under the influence of his cousin Stephen 
Youngs, he often left off the final "s" in signing his name. 

In person he was of medium height and weight, quick of movement, with 
dark brown eyes, and in his prime his hair was nearly black. In manner he 
was genial, but always self-possessed and, being of a cheerful disposition with 
a vein of humor, he looked on the bright side of life, and was the friend of 
everyone and had no enemy. He could be firm without anger, gentle without 
weakness, and was never known to use coarse or profane language, but was 
always the gentleman both in speech and manner. 

While a man of strong character, his most prominent traits were his trust 
in God, and his love for his family. In 1889 he and his wife celebrated their 
golden wedding with their children around them,* and for seven years more 
they traveled life's journey together. 

For many years he was an elder in the Presbyterian Church at Mattituck 
and the leader of the adult Bible class. 

He was vigorous and active until the last two years of his life, and his 
mental faculties were unimpaired. But the closing days drew on, and after 
weeks of pain, he turned to his loved ones a face radiant with love and faith, 
and in that moment that which was mortal put on immortality. 

His widow, Sybil "Wiggins Terry Youngs, survived him nearly ten years, 
and lacked but four months of ninety years. She joined the Presbyterian 
Church of Sag Harbor, and took her letter to the church at Mattituck. She 
was a woman of great purity of thought and speech and a devoted wife and 
mother, and unceasing in her efforts to make them happy. She early taught 
her children to kneel at her knee in prayer and impressed upon them the value 
of honesty, truthfulness and neatness. Her mother was the daughter of 
John and Patience (Van Scoy) Payne, of North Haven, L. I., and her father, 
Joshua Terry, was the son of Thomas and Julia (Wiggins) Terry, and 
grandson of Col. Thomas and Sybil (King) Terry, of Orient, L. I. Col. Terry 
was a captain in the French and Indian War of 1747, and a colonel at the 
outbreak of the Eevolution. He assisted in organizing the continental troops 
on Long Island, and died in 1777. 

by his son Joseph, who owned five slaves, had large flocks of sheep, and built 
miles of ditches and hedges, many of which can still be seen. Joseph Mapes, 
the fourth owner, died in 1783, and it passed into the possession of Timothy 
Davis, who was succeeded by his sons Timothy and Parshall Davis, who sold it to 
Richard Cox, of Oyster Bay, and he settled his sons Samuel, Allen and Stephen 
Cox upon it. In recent years it has come to be known as Cox's Neck.

Col. Terry was the third of the name to occupy the Terry homestead, at

Daniel Kelsey Youngs was intended by his parents for a profession, and 
with that end in view graduated from the Oyster Bay Academy, and although 
a most proficient student he preferred the freedom of outdoor life, and at the 
early age of 16 undertook the management of his father's large farm, which 
he improved to such an extent that it became known as the model farm of 
Long Island. He was particularly interested in small fruits and market gar- 
dening, and was an authority throughout the United States on the culture of

asparagus. He was one of the founders, the first treasurer, and later presi- 
dent of the Queens County Agricultural Society, and was the author of numer- 
ous pamphlets and essays on practical agriculture. In his later years he ex- 
pressed to the author the pride he took in the success he had attained along 
those lines. He contributed many articles for metropolitan and agricultural 
papers, and continued all his life to study and have an interest in classic 
authors and literature. He was a man of exceptional ability and probity of 
character, and was looked up to as one of Long Island's foremost men. He 
was for half a century a warden and vestryman of Christ Church, Oyster Bay. 
He had a great affection for the old homestead, which six generations of the 
Youngs family had occupied, but even higher than that was the regard in 
which he held the family name ; and it was to preserve the recollection of the 
family, in Oyster Bay, that led him to write and publish, gratuitously, "The 
Oyster Bay Youngs Becord." The writing and publication of this book occu- 
pied seven years of his life, and fortunately was completed just before his death. 
In bearing he was courteous and dignified. His manners were those of a 
thorough old-fashioned country gentleman. He scorned a lie or anything 
which savored of dishonorable practices, and departed full of years with the 
love and respect of every person who ever knew him. ( See portrait. )

Charlotte (dau. of John and Catherine Creamer) Young, a of New York City, 
who died before him. She and his brother Oliver's wife were sisters. No 
children. 

Henry Youngs was the eldest of three brothers, who all left the farm in 
Goshen to seek their fortunes in New York City. Henry engaged in the whole- 
sale dry goods business, and retired some years before bis death with a fortune 
of about one million dollars. 

Having no children of his own, in his will he made liberal provision for 
all of his brothers and sisters, or their descendants, and it is a pleasure to 
record that those now living speak of him with the greatest regard and esteem. 

He is said to have been a very firm and yet a kind man, and a thorough 
churchman, but had a strong distaste for politics and would never accept any 
public position. 

In 1855 to 1857 he built the beautiful home at Goshen, N. Y., of which 
see illustration. 

After he retired from business he devoted a large part of his time to pro- 
moting the interests of Trinity Church, and aided in defeating the Anneke 
Jans heirs in obtaining possession of the church property. He also had 
nearly the entire charge of the erection of Trinity Chapel at 26th street, N. Y., 
and at the time of his death he was the oldest vestryman of Trinity Church. 

When the British took possession of New York City in 1776, he retired to 
New Rochelle, where he died. His family then removed to Orange County, 
where they remained until his son John became of age. About the time of 
the Eevolution the name of the family was changed from De Yong to Young. 

Adrian De Yang's son John married Catherine Creamer, the daughter of 
Major Creamer, a British officer residing in New York. 

a Catherine Young was descended from Adrian De Yong, who came to 
America before the Eevolution and resided in Crown street, opposite Temple 
street, New York City. He was of Huguenot extraction and warmly espoused 
the cause of the American Eevolution, bearing arms in its defense.

Hiram Youngs, in 1809, at the age of fourteen years, in company with 
his brothers, Henry and Oliver, left the homestead farm at Goshen, and went 
to New York City, where he became a clerk in a dry goods house on Broad- 
way. Later he went into that business for himself, but retired from it in 
1831, and went into the wholesale clothing business in partnership with his 
brother-in-law, J. F. Conant, under the firm name of Conant and Youngs, in 
Pearl street. They were burned out completely in the great fire of 1835, even 
the safe containing their books being destroyed, and being unable to collect 
their accounts they were ruined financially. His health broke down, but after 
a long sickness he partially recovered, and thereafter was a clerk in his brother 
Henry's dry goods store until his death. 

During the early part of his life he was a member of a militia regiment 
of New York City. 

After his marriage he resided on the N. E. corner of Broadway and 
Eeade street, and there his son Henry was born. Later he moved to 31 Beade 
street, which is now occupied by the Stewart Building. In 1830 he moved 
to Hudson street, and from thence to Greenwich street, where his daughters 
Charlotte and Elizabeth were born.*

278 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

Kev. Emerson K. Young, D.D., was educated in the public schools of 
Syracuse, N". Y. (where he spent his boyhood), and took a college preparatory 
course in Cazenovia Seminary. 

He entered Cornell College, Mount Vernon, la., graduating in the classical 
course in 1862. He joined the Upper Iowa Conference the following year and, 
after an itinerancy of twenty years in a number of the most important churches 
of the Upper Iowa and Des Moines Conferences, he was transferred to East 
Ohio Conference, and stationed at Akron, Ohio, where he remained three 
years. 

In 1888 he was appointed to Grace Church, Philadelphia, Pa., where he 
remained four years, after which he was transferred to New York East Con- 
ference, and appointed to the First Methodist Episcopal Church, New Britain, 
Conn. He did a large and efficient work in these fields, but, warned by 
continued ill health, he reluctantly resigned his care of this church in 
October, 1896, after spending more than thirty years in active service for 
the Master and the following month he died. 

In the summer of 1880 he traveled in Europe, and by means of the press, 
delighted his friends with vivid accounts of old world customs and char- 
acters. On his return he published a neat, racy little book entitled "Bright 
Days Abroad," which gives an idea of his charm of style and manner. 

He was also the author of another volumn, "The Biographers of Christ." 
Bishop Hurst, in his note of introduction to this book, says of the author: 
"He has studied closely in this beautiful and enchanting field, and now 
gives to the world the benefit of his labors." 

He was also in demand on the lecture platform, and received the highest 
commendations of the press. 

Had he possessed the constitution to have continued his activities he 
would have been still more widely known, but into this seemingly short life 
he had put the strength and devotion of his mind and soul, and his work was 
done. 

Probably not since our ancestors came to this country has the family 
produced a man of a higher type mentally, morally and spiritually. 

In person he was rather under medium size, with dark hair and eyes 
and rather sharp features. The first impression he made on you was that 
he was a man of purpose, and when he clasped your hand you felt that he was 
your friend. 

He was a man of varied talents, and having both wit and humor, was 
the life and charm of the family and social circles. 

In manner he was cheerful, earnest and magnetic, and invariably won all 
hearts ; but it was as a preacher and winner of souls that he was pre-eminent. 

He was not only a fluent speaker, but possessed the gift of oratory, and

whether in the pulpit or on the platform he could reach all classes and arouse 
their interest or kindle them to enthusiasm. 

Wherever he went he made hosts of friends, and has left behind him the 
fragrance of a noble life and an ideal set high for others to emulate. 

In 1883 Allegheny College conferred on him the title of D.D., and a few 
years before his death he visited Southold, Long Island, where Eev. John 
Youngs, his first American ancestor, lies buried and where his name, with 
many others of this generation, is inscribed on a monument to commemorate 
the 250th year of the settlement of Southold. (See portrait.)

receiver of the U. S. Land Office at Independence. In politics, he has usually 
acted with either the Democratic or Populist organizations, but in principle 
he believes in public ownership to an extent that makes him class himself as 
a Socialist. (See portrait.)

Charles Herbert Young is one of the leading lawyers of the State of 
New York. He was admitted to the bar in February, 1881, at the early age 
of twenty-one years, and on the first of May following commenced practising 
on his own account in the city of New York and in New Eochelle, Westchester 
County, where he resides. He was successful from the start, and soon be- 
came prominent in the legal fraternity. In 1890 he formed the law firm 
of C. H. & J. A. Young, which (with addition of other members) has con- 
tinued to the present time, and conducted a large business in civil cases with 
marked success. 

Mr. Young was the leading counsel, next to Joseph H. Choate, in the 
Seaman case, which was in the courts of New York for thirteen or fourteen

years, and decided in his favor; and he was sole counsel in the great State 
Constitutional case of in re Henneberger, reported in 155th New York Reports, 
which was decided in his favor by the full court, on a vote standing four to 
three. 

He is a great reader and student, has an exceptionally retentive memory, 
and is a particularly fine historical scholar. His mental equipment is rare; 
his mind acts with great celerity and precision, and his judgment on legal 
and other questions is much sought after and relied upon. 

His executive ability is of the first order and he handles large matters 
easily and brings them to a successful conclusion. 

His knowledge of human nature is remarkable; he makes friends easily, 
and probably knows more people than any one in his city. 

As a citizen he is public-spirited, and has been the leader in many 
movements in his city for public parks and improvements for the betterment 
of the community. 

In politics he is a strong Republican and cast his first vote for Blaine. 
He takes an active interest in the success of the party, and has recently been 
elected President of the Republican Club of New York city. 

He has never been a political candidate, and the only office he has held 
was that of Deputy Attorney General, to which he was appointed by Gov. 
Morton in 1895. 

In physique he is solidly built, with a massive head that is in harmony 
with his strong and aggressive character, and although a man of positive 
opinions, he is frank and open, and none need misunderstand him. 

As a neighbor and friend, he is held in high esteem, and he has helped 
many young men to make their start in law or business. (See portrait.)

volunteer choir. His distinguishing trait is his faculty for making friends. 
He has dropped the final s from his name. (For portrait, see group on p. 240.)

District School, and the Franklinville Academy, and worked on the farm 
during vacations. In the fall of 1864 he went to Poughkeepsie and took a 
course in Eastman's Business College. On graduating from that he obtained 
a situation as collector for a mill in New York City, and lived in Brooklyn. 
This was the year in which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, and when 
his remains lay in state in the City Hall, New York, he was one of the great 
throng who looked on the features of the martyred President. 

The following year he went with H. A. Brayton into the grain commis- 
sion business, and remained with him for six years, except for two seasons, 
when he was in that business in Buffalo, N. Y. While with Mr. Brayton he 
became a member of the N". Y. Produce Exchange, and for some years was the 
youngest wholesale grain salesman on the Exchange. In 1871 he went with 
the firm of A. E. Kent & Co., in the same business, and in 1875 was taken 
into the firm, and through various changes continued a member until it dis- 
solved in 1886. In 1883 it did the largest business in that line of any firm in 
New York, but in the panic of 1884 it sustained large losses, which, owing to 
increased competition and the failing health of Mr. Kent, were never recouped. 
Since 1886 he has continued in the business in his own name. ' 

The second year he was in Brooklyn he joined Plymouth Church, of 
which the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher was pastor, and for eight years taught 
in the Sabbath School. While he lived in Brooklyn he was a member of the 
Franklin Literary Society, of which he was President one term, and Secretary 
of the Kings County Central Temperance Association, representing all the 
temperance societies of that county. 

In politics he has always been a Eepublican, and cast his first vote for 
General Grant, with whom he had the pleasure of shaking hands on a Sabbath 
when the General attended service at Plymouth Church. 

In 1884 he removed to Montelair, N. J., where the following spring he 
bought a residence on Mountain Avenue, where he still resides. After the 
death of Mr. Beecher he took his letter from Plymouth Church to the First 
Congregational Church of Montelair, and became a teacher in the Sabbath 
School there. 

He has a cottage on part of the Youngs farm at Mattituck, where amid 
the scenes of his happy boyhood he delights in spending the summers with 
his family. His descent from Rev. John, Col. John, and Capt. David Youngs 
and Col. Thomas Terry entitles him to membership in all the societies of 
Colonial and Revolutionary times. 

The family name, as handed down in his branch, is spelled "Youngs," 
but in the past two generations several families have dropped the final "s," 
and he has frequently left it off in signing his name. (For portrait, see 
frontispiece.)

founder of Southold, L. I. Issue:

1806* ii Edwakd Lewis/ b. 17 Dec., 1861; m. Mary Sybil Eager. 

Edward Faitaute Condit Young was born in the old homestead of three 
generations of his ancestors, near Morristown, N. J. His father died when 
he was seven years of age, and when he was nine the family removed to 
Jersey City, where on Nov. 1, 1852, he entered the Hudson County Bank as a 
clerk. 

Equipped with a fair education, and inheriting a good constitution and 
the strong mental and moral qualities of a line of worthy ancestors, he 
met the full requirements of every position and his course was steadily 
upward. 

On June 20th, 1864, he accepted a position in the First National Bank 
of Jersey City, and was promoted to cashier on January 1st, 1871. On Sep- 
tember 1st, 1879, he was made President of that bank, which position he 
still holds. 

He is the most accessible man in the bank, and his mind acts with such 
quickness that it is doubtful if he is excelled in the rapid dispatch of 
business. 

Having acquired a thorough education in banking and finance, he 
became a large factor in financial circles, both in New Jersey and New York. 
His co-operation has been sought by many large enterprises, and he is now 
an officer or director in more than thirty institutions, and is recognized as 
the leading financeer in the State. 

In politics he has always been a Democrat, but has held no office, although 
it has only needed his consent to make him the Democratic candidate for 
Governor. 

In his prosperity he has not been unmindful of the needs of the Church, 
or of those who have been less fortunate, and unostentatiously but freely he 
has lent the helping hand, and it will not soon be forgotten that during the 
coal strike of the winter of 1902-3, it was his generosity that kept the fires 
lit in more than a thousand homes in Jersey City. 

Mr. Young is the lineal descendent of three ministers, one of whom 
(Eev. John Young) was the founder of Southold, L. I., and of Ephraim 
Young, who was in the State militia during the Eevolutionary "War. He is 
a member of the New Jersey Society of the Order of the Founders and Patriots 
of America, and is entitled to membership in the "Sons of the Eevolution."

Although of Puritan stock, he joined the Methodist Church in 1863, 
but later became a member of the congregation of St. John's Episcopal 
Church, of Jersey City, of which he was a vestryman for twenty-five years. 

His home life is an ideal one, and the exactions of business have not 
lessened his enjoyment of the society of his friends. The history of the 
Youngs family has always been a matter of special interest to him. He has 
had an honorable pride in the good name of the family, and the author is 
more indebted to him than any other person in the publication of this 
volume. 

In 1900 he had the lettering recut on the tomb of his ancestor, Eev. 
John Youngs, at Southold, Long Island. 

In a business career extending over half a century, he has not only 
achieved success, but is held in high esteem, and is regarded as Jersey City's 
"First Citizen." (See portrait.)

HON. WILLIAM J. YOUNGS 



NINTH GENERATION. 309 

Hon. William Jones Youngs is an only child, and the only male descend- 
ant of his grandfather, Daniel Youngs, and with one exception (Graham 
Youngs, No. 1825) is the only living male descendant of Samuel,* son of the 
first Thomas Youngs 3 of Oyster Bay. 

William J. Youngs graduated from the Huntington High School in 
1868, and entered Cornell University on October 3d of that year, graduating 
with the degree of B. S. in 1872, and was one of the speakers for the Wood- 
ford gold medal during that year. He immediately began the study of the 
law, and on September 1, 1873, was admitted to the bar in the Supreme 
Court of the Second Judicial Department. He became active in political 
life immediately on his admission to the bar, served as a delegate to the 
State Convention in 1876, and was elected a member of the Assembly for 
Queens County in 1879 and 1880. For several years he was chairman of the 
Eepublican County Committee. He was elected district attorney of Queens 
County in 1896, the first Eepublican ever elected to that office in Queens 
County, and was secretary to the Governor (Eoosevelt) from 1899 to 1901, 
Deputy Superintendent of Banks from October, 1901, to December, 1902, 
and was appointed by President Eoosevelt the United States Attorney for 
the Eastern District of New York on December 22, 1902, and still holds 
that important position. He retains the character of his ancestors for up- 
rightness of life and probity of character, and in all the positions he has 
filled has commended himself alike to his superior officers and to the people 
he has served. He is a man of considerable literary ability, a ready writer, 
and fluent and polished extemporaneous speaker. (See portrait.)

Henry Youngs was born at the corner of Beade St. and Broadway, New 
York, and when a boy attended Columbia College, but when his father was 
burned out in the great fire of 1835 he left college and helped to support 
the family. 

He entered the dry goods store of his uncle, Henry Youngs, as a clerk, 
and remained there until about 1846, when he went South with his mother's 
brother, William Young, who later settled at Columbus, Ga., and built the 
Eagle and Phoenix Cotton Mills. After being with him a year or so, he 
conducted a general store at Apalachicola, Florida, but not being able to 
stand the climate, about 1850 he returned to New York, and went with 
Frost & Forest into the grain and produce business. 

In 1855 he engaged in that business on his own account, and became a 
member of the N. Y. Produce Exchange. 

After his marriage, he went to Brooklyn and lived in Jay Street, until 
he bought the house No. 191 President Street, where all of his children 
except Henry were born. 

From his uncle, Henry Youngs, who died in 1868, he inherited several 
pieces of property in New York City, the homestead farm at Goshen, and 
the family pew in Trinity Church, New York. A couple of years later he 
retired from business, but retained his membership in the Produce Exchange. 

He moved his residence to the farm at Goshen, where as a boy he had 
spent much of his time with his grandmother, and to which he was much 
attached. He identified himself with the place, and always voted there, 
although he kept his house in Brooklyn, and spent the mid-winter months 
there in order that his children might attend school. 

He devoted most of his time to his farm, and lived the life of a retired 
country gentleman. He died from injuries received by a fall. (See portrait.)

Henry Youngs graduated from Forrest and Quackenboss' Collegiate 
School, corner of 6th Avenue and 14th Street, New York, and was engaged 
in mercantile pursuits until the breaking out of the Civil War, when he 
enlisted in Company B, 9th Illinois Cavalry, on September 19th, 1861. 

He served with that regiment in the Army of the Southwest under 
Generals Frank Steele, Samuel K. Curtis, Benton, Washburn, Hatch and 
Sherman; and after participating in all of the hard fought engagements of 
that army, was mustered out at Springfield, Illinois, on September 23rd, 
1864. On the 4th of April, 1865, he re-enlisted in Company E, 6th Begiment 
of United States Veteran Volunteers, a corps of old soldiers who had served 
three years and had been honorably discharged. He was appointed Orderly 
Sergeant of his company and served the year of his enlistment. 

During the encampment of his regiment at Washington, he happened 
to be in Ford's Theatre the night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, wit- 
nessed that sad occurrence, and took an active part in the arrest of John 
Wilkes Booth. He was mustered out of the service at Washington on April 
3rd, 1866, after a service of four years. In May, 1865, he participated in 
the Grand Beview of the troops in Washington. 

After being mustered out of the service, he settled in Geneseo, 111., 
where his parents then resided. 

On account of Mrs. Youngs' declining health, Henry Youngs, the sub- 
ject of this sketch, moved with his family to Colorado in 1885. Mrs. Youngs 
died in Denver on March 14th, 1890. On November 15th, 1894, Mr. Youngs

Jeremiah Young, or "Uncle Jerry," as he had long been called by his 
acquaintances, learned the trade of carpenter and was an expert and finished 
workman, whose motto was "What is worth doing, had best be done well." 

In the old days of "general training" he was captain of a company of 
State Militia, and made a fine looking officer. Some sixty years ago he 
joined the Methodist Church of Orient, and for many years was chorister. 
He filled many offices in the church, and was a prominent class leader and 
exhorter. He was a man of sterling character, and one of the best of friends.

James Henry Young learned the trade of carpenter and builder and 
succeeded his father in the building trade. He erected several fine residences 
on Eastern Long Island, also the Prospect Hotel on Shelter Island. Later in 
life he retired from this occupation and engaged extensively in market gar- 
dening. 

At the outbreak of the Kebellion, when Stewart L. Woodford was at the 
east end of Long Island raising a regiment, he enlisted as a private in 
Company "H" 127th Eegt. N. Y. Vols. He was successively promoted 
2nd Lieut., 1st Lieut., and to the command of his company, and after two 
years of active service was mustered out on account of physical disability. 

Mr. Young is one of the most prominent men in Orient, and is always 
found taking an active part in every important question concerning the 
public good. 

For many years he was an active member of the Congregational Church ; 
the leader of the choir for twenty-two years, and Superintendent of the Sunday 
School, but from these pleasing associations he subsequently withdrew, having 
embraced the Unitarian faith.

lieutenant Young's particular pride was and still is the Orient Soldiers' 
Monument, which he designed and, with the generous aid of his fellow 
townspeople, erected on "Peters Hill," in June, 1870, and fittingly dedi- 
cated to the memory of the boys from Orient who gave their lives to their 
country in the War of the Kebellion. 

In May, 1906, Mr. Young had the supreme pleasure of having this 
beautiful monument moved to a more desirable location in the village, at 
the junction of Main street and the "King's Highway," where, on Decoration 
Day of that year, it was rededicated with fitting honors in loving remem- 
brance by the six surviving members, and their comrades of the G-. A. E.

Clarence Herbert Youngs was graduated from the N. Y. College of 
Dentistry in March, 1883, at the head of his class. For some years he acted 
as Demonstrator at the college, and was appointed to the Chair of Physiology 
on the Spring or Junior Faculty, but owing to a rapidly increasing private 
practice was obliged to decline the honor. In 1889, following an injury 
received while camping in the Adirondacks, his health became affected, and 
with his wife he removed to Tombstone, Cocluse County, Arizona, where he 
became superintendent of the Huachuca and Syracuse Springs Water Com- 
panies, which supplied the town and mines. He died of heart failure. His 
wife, Florence Evelyn Pratt, is the author of a book of verse entitled "Songs 
of Many Days." She is a member of the Mayflower, Holland Dames, Daugh- 
ters of the American Kevolution, Americans of Armorial Ancestry, and other 
societies. Served for some years as presiding officer of the Ladies' Board of 
the House of Mercy, Inwood; was a founder of the outdoor playground 
movement in New York City, and has for the last three years been Assistant 
Librarian of the New York Geneaogical and Biographical Society. (See

*His Record. 




DR. HOWARD HALSEY YOUNG 




HON. JAMES ADDISON YOUNG 



TENTH GENERATION. 331 

In recent years he gave special attention to affections of the eye, ear 
and throat, and became very skilful in their treatment. 

Dr. Young was prominent in the Suffolk County Medical Society, having 
served as its secretary, and had also been medical examiner for the Eiverhead 
Council, Eoyal Arcanum, of which he was a member. 

In his profession he found many opportunities to be of benefit to his 
fellow man, where there could be no pecuniary return, and it was always 
pleasure to him to give his aid. 

Dr. Young had an engaging personality, and his genial manner and 
upright manhood drew men to him and won their confidence and esteem. 
He was also actively interested in the work of the Congregational Church of 
Eiverhead and a member of its Board of Deacons. 

Without any apparent disease, his close attention to his professional 
duties and solicitude over important cases caused a nervous exhaustion which 
brought to a close his short but useful life. (See portrait.)

2011 iii Alice H., 11 b. 27 Sept., 1899. 

Hon. James Addison Young is a Young on both his father's and mother's 
side. He received his early education at the public school of his native 
town and at the Franklinville Academy, after which he entered Williams 
College and graduated in the class of 1888. 

He then took a course at the Columbia Law School, New York, and was 
admitted to the bar in December, 1889. He immediately began practicing in 
New Eochelle, N. Y., in connection with Charles H. Young, under the firm 
name of C. H. & J. A. Young. This firm has done a large and increasing 
business, and has become one of the leading law firms in Greater New York. 

Mr. Young is possessed of an extraordinarily well balanced mind, and is 
considered the leader of the Westchester Bar. He is probably the greatest 
trial lawyer in that county, and his conduct of criminal trials has called forth 
the praise of the Court of Appeals for its fairness and ability. 

*His Record. 



.332 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

In politics he is a strong Republican, is prominent in the leadership 
of the party, and has twice been elected District Attorney of Westchester 
County, serving from 1902 to 1907. 

He has taken an active interest in local affairs, and been a member of the 
Board of Education for the past six years. 

Mr. Young is a Freemason and a member of the Presbyterian Church.

*His Record. 



340 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

James F. Young attended the public school of his native place from 
1848 until 1861; and the Northville Academy, Joseph 1ST. Hallock, M.A., 
Principal, for the winter term of 1861-2. On Sept. 5th, 1862, when under 
twenty years of age, he enlisted in the 2nd 1ST. Y. Vol. Cavalry (Harris light 
Cav.), and went to the war. 

He was in several skirmishes and was slightly wounded, but in the first 
Battle of Fredericksburg, early in December, 1862, he was struck in the knee 
by a ball, which rendered further service impossible, and in March, 1863, he 
was discharged. 

For several years thereafter he was engaged in farming and stock raising 
in Southern Michigan. Selling out there, he returned East, and followed 
the sea until 1876, mainly in the "West Indian and South American trade; 
and still holds a first-class license as steamboat pilot. 

He then secured a responsible position in a large metal-working firm, 
which he held until 1882, when he entered the building trade at Manhasset, 
N. Y., where he still resides. 

With indomitable courage, he has fought the battle of life on the firing 
line, until (largely as the result of his wound) he is physically disabled, 
except for the partial use of one arm, but possessed of an active mind, and 
sustained by a majestic faith, he still uses the pen, and the author is indebted 
to him for arranging the index for this book. (See portrait.)

Joseph Youngs was born in 1732, and the record of his marriage in 
1755 states that he was "of Mattituck/' Long Island. About 1759 he removed 
to Hanover, N. J., where he engaged in farming. 

His grandson, Joseph Lindsley Youngs (who was only fourteen years of 
age when his father died), has handed down the tradition that his ancestor 
who came to America was a young Scotchman, who came down to Edinburgh 
with cattle and, when walking along the street, after selling them, he was 
seized by an English press gang and put on board a war ship, which sailed 
for America. When near the coast of Long Island, in the night, he jumped 
overboard and swam seven miles to the shore, losing his money in the water.

344 YOUNGS FAMILY. 

When Joseph Youngs removed to Hanover, he settled among the des- 
cendants of Kobert Young (who came from Scotland), and for a second wife 
married his granddaughter, Phebe Young. The tradition evidently is from 
her family, but Joseph Youngs doubtless was a descendant of the Long Island 
Youngs. 

His will (1789) names children, Grover Youngs, John Youngs and Katu- 
rah Marsh.

a The only knowledge we have of Alexander Youngs 1 is from the Flushing, 
L. I., Friends' records of his death, and from the Westbury, L. I., Friends' rec- 
ords, which state that the Alexander Youngs who married Sarah Coles, was the 
son of Alexander Youngs, deceased. The final "s" to his surname is an indication 
that he is descended from the Long Island Youngs, and it is quite probable that 
he was a son of Joseph (son of Capt. Joseph) Youngs, of Southold, L. I., of whose 
family we have a very incomplete record (see p. 55). 

His son Alexander 2 was a witness to deeds and wills in Hempstead, L. I., 
from 1720 to 1753, and in 1753 he sold his home and lands there, took a certificate 
from the Friends of Westbury to the Friends of Purchase, or Mamaroneck, N. Y., 
and, with his wife and young children, removed to New Castle, N. Y., his older 
children following later. In 1758, Letters of Administration were granted to his 
widow, Sarah Youngs. She m. (2) Joseph Haight. Her will, 1775, proved 1787, 
names six married dau's., bequeathing them money, sons Elijah, John, and James 
Youngs, and grandson Alexander Youngs, bequeathing each one-quarter of her 
estate. (N. Y. Wills.) 

Mrs. De Lancey Nicoll, who is descended on her mother's line from James 
Youngs, 8 discovered the records of the first two Alexander Youngs, and Mrs. Nicoll, 
Mr. Evelyn B. Baldwin, and the author have traced most of the descendants, but 
too late to embody in this work.
