"In a journal kept by the Rev. Mr. Sharp, an Episcopalian 
clergyman in the Colony of New York, during Lord Cornbury s 
administration, under date of Jan. 27, 1710, is this entry: ' Baptized 
Isaac Stiles, the first male child born in the Colony of Con- 
necticut, a man of 80 years of age' ( Hazard: s Hi.^t.Col.) 
Lord Cornburv's administration ended in 1709 ; Cxov. Hunter 
succeeded, June, 1710, and in 1711 visited Connecticut and 
passed through Stratford. His Chaplain preached and baptized 
there. At this occasion I suppose, Mr. Sharp baptized aged 
Isaac Stiles, at Stratford. "-Pre... Stiles' JISS. Genealoriy. 

To this note in mv first edition of the Stiles Family Gene- 
alogv, in a copv formerly belonging to the Hon. James Savage, 
compiler of th^ Xew England Gen. Dictionary, is added, m the 
handwriting of that venerable scholar, this remark: -Of corirse, 
if the p'rsf male child born in Conn., he would not be more than 
76, instead of 80 vears. Perhaps his mental faculties m Jan., 
1710-11 were infirm,' so that he might not judge rightly ot hi^ 
own a-e; and the Reverend officiating priest was perhaps too 
ignora^ntof the history to correct his venerable catechumens

field, Ohio; pursued his collegiate studies at Williams and Oberlin 
Colleges, graduating from the latter in 1859, and from the Ober- 
lin Theoloiiieal Sermiuav in 1863. 


While iu the Semiuary, however, the War of the Civil Rebel- 
lion broke out, and Mr. Stiles was one of those enrolled in the 
first company raised in Oberlin, and as a 8erL!;eant went with it 
to the front iu ISGl. He had the misfortune to be taken prisoner 
early in the war, and endured nine months of life in southern 
prisons. On being exchan<4ed, he was brought to New York, to 
all appearances a dying man, but under the influences of nourish- 
ing food and good nursing he rallied, and was able to finish his 
studies at Oberlin and enter upon his life's work, although with 
a constitution much impaired. Towards the close of the war he 
returned to the army; and, in connection with the Christian Com- 
mission, ministered to the spiritual needs of the wounded. His 
first work in the ministry was the care of the church in Brighton, 
Ohio. From thence he removed 4o Lowell, Mich., where he 
remained for three years; after which he labored for eight years 
in Manchester, Iowa; from which place, about 1877, he 
was called to lie pastor of the church in Hancock, Mich. His 
labors there were abundantly blessed of the Lcn-d; all who knew 
him testify that, even beyond his strength, he labored for the 
salvation of souls. He had the invaluable power of winning the 
respect and love of those whom he met for the first time, and by 
continued acquaintance those feelings were invariably deepened; 
his thorough consecration to his work, his self-forgetfulness and 
kindly manner* made his grave but pleasant face ever welcome 
in the homes of the rich and poor; his earnestness in the pulpit, 
having behind it high Christian character and sterling manhood, 
made him an eti'ective preacher. As a pastor he possessed the qual- 
ities that would make any man efficient, Avhile the sweet Christian 
influence that went out from his delightful home added much to 
his pastoral power. The absence of ostentation about the man, 
and the correctness of his business habits gave him great influ- 
ence Avith the business men of the town, and his loss was deeply 
felt by the whole community. He left his church free from dis- 
cord and from debt, and his death strengthened the bonds of

1- *' Mr." Frarrcis' Stiles, the third son of the Milbroke 
Family, was baptized in St. Michael's Church, Milbroke, Bed- 
fordshire, England, August 1, 1602, (see page 17), and for some 
time previous to his coming to America, had been a master 
carpenter and citizen of London. Though the third, in order of 
birth, of the four emigrant Stiles brothers, he was by far the 
most enterprising and energetic in character, and it was through 
his influence and means, undoubtedly, (as more fully related in 
pages 23 to 28 of this volume), that the family removed hither. 

After the abandonment of the Saltonstall enterprise, Mr. 
Stiles appears to have purchased from his patron some 1,000 
acres of his lands at Windsor; which, together Avith between 400 
and 500 acres which he had already received by allotment from 
the Town, was, for that day,. an unusually large amount of real 
estate for one man to hold; and it is probable tiiat Stiles was 
obliged to borrow money, or make some sacrifices, in order to 
pay for it. At all events his debt to Saltonstall ultimately 
forced him to sell his estate. He resold it, or a portion thereof, 
to Saltonstall, or his son Eobert, and in his deed, dated Sept. 
12, 1647, is named as "Francis Stiles, late of Windsor, but now 
of Saybrook." Saltonstall was to pay him in installments, and 
a part of it in "a butt of sack at the [Connecticut] Elver's 
mouth," This transfer left Stiles not poor, but reduced in 

He was the only one of the four Stiles brothers to whom the 
title of "Mr." — which was in those days no unmeaning phrase, 
but a veritable index of social position — was ever given; and he 
was, undoubtedly, as Gov. Wolcott informed President Stiles, 


"A man of great business." Such items as have come down to 
us in court records, etc., would seem to indicate this, as well as 
the fact that he was a man of quick, passionate nature, (known 
to be somewhat of a family trait); stout in asserting his rights 
and consequently frequently tiguriug in law-suits, etc.* 

He was admitted a Freeman at Windsor, Sept. 10, 1640, 
and was on the Jury of the Particular Court of Oct. 14, 1042; 
[Conn. Col. Rec, 76;) and at the Court held at Hartford, March' 
28, 1637, it was "ordered yt Mr. Francis Stiles shall teach Geo.

In 1639, according to a note received from Mr. S. D. Smith, 
of Guilford, Conn., Francis Stiles seems to have "had a job" at 
house building in that town. Guilford was settled in the autumn 
of 1639 by He v. Henry Whitfield and a "goodly company; and, 
in the hurry of preparing houses for the winter, they called on 
the carpenters of other towns to assist them. Among those 
carpenters thus pressed into the service, was Francis Stiles, 
of Windsor; and a house which is called " Stiles' House " was a 
matter of contention in the Town Court, in 1645, as appears 
from the Records. 

The autumn of the year 1639 was also a busy season for 
Mr. vStiles in other ways. From Barnabas Davis' "Accounting" 
with the heirs of William Woodcocke in England,* we learn 
more abdut Mr. Francis Stiles' business aft'airs. After having 
builded himself " a sufficient house at Connecticut," he returned 
to England (probably in the winter of 1636-7); and as he had 
neither built the house nor enclosed the 400 acres of laud which 
he had engaged to do for Mr. Woodcocke, (one of Saltonstalls 
co-partners), he sold to Mr. W. the house he had builded for 
himself, and promised "that the towne would accommodate Mr. 
Woodcocke with 400 acres thereunto." Stiles returned from 
England (probably in spring of 1637, and Davis followed him 
to look after Woodcocke's interests; and, while here, the Pequot 
War broke out (May, 1637), and Davis w^as impressed as a soldier 
(probably the " Sergeant Davis " referred to in Capt. Mason's 
account of the Pequot fight). Davis seems to have had the 
assistance of Eev. Messrs. Hooker of Hartford, Warham of 
Windsor, and others, in "treating the cause [with Stiles], and 
they determined that Stiles had dealt ill with Mr. Woodcocke in 

• See.Letchford"3 Notes. Trans. Am. Antiq. Soc., vll , 3C.i. 


iwt proairinrj -400 acrcfi of land to he laid out to the srtid Jiouse, 
and impaliu^ it as lie undertook." It is pretty certain that 
Stiles had the 400 acres ready for Woodcocke in lGo7, l)ut it was 
located " over the Great Eiver," considerable distance away from 
"the said house;" and this "breach of contract" was what led 
the court to find a verdict in favor of "NYoodcocke. A.Ljaiu, Davis 
returned to England to report to Lord Say and Mr. Woodcocke, 
the latter of whom died soon after; and his brother John, hav- 
ing charge of the estate, sent Davis over the third time, June, 
1639. In the September following, Mr. Edward Hopkins of 
Hartford, attorney for Woodcocke, sues Stiles in the sum of £500 
for breach of contract, and gets a verdict for =£300 "for not tak- 
ing up 400 acres of ground according to bargain thaf^Ir. Stiles 
should take the house [which he sold Woodcocke while in Eng- 
land] back again, and repay back the £230 and £70 for arrear- 
ages." Davis says the £300 "lies in the hands of Mr. Hopkins 
in Connecticut." Then, 1641, Mr. Saltonstall brings an action 
against " Edward Hopkins as an assignee to Woodcocke " for 
£200,* and hath an attachment granted against Mr. Hopkins. 
Whether this suit grew out of their mutual relations with Stiles. 
or some other unrecorded transaction in Connecticut, is uncer- 
tain. What pecuniary interest Lord Saye had in this business 
which brought Davis over is unknown; Viut, both times, when the 
latter returned to England to report, he goes by the advice of 
Eev. Mr. Hooker and takes letters from him both to Lord Save 
and Mr. Woodcocke; apparently about the same business.

we learn that "Francis Stiles' home-lot, (thirteen acres), extended 
from about the north elm of the present Judf^e Ellsworth Place, 
eighteen rods south, nearly to the north line of the Col. Ells- 
worth Place. The lot bounded west by Rocky Hill, probably 
near the present railroad; east b}-. the meadow. There is an 
old well near the middle of the lot south of the Ellsworth door- 
yard, back near the brow of the hill. I fancy that Francis 
Stiles' house was near that welL He had nine acres in meadow 
against or abutting on the home-lots of his brother Henry 
Stiles, William Gaylord, Jr., and his own; also 'for meadow 
and some additions in upland,' thirty-two acres, sixty-five rods, 
the breadth by the river; seventy-seven rods north side; seventy 
rods south side.* He sold from the south side of this lot, five 
acres, 11.^ rods in breadth, to Thomas Gilberd (Gilbert) north by 
William Hayden, Jan. 24, 1644: Wm. Hayden one of the wit- 
nesses. Under the same date he gave a deed to William Hay- 
den for 25 acres south by Thos. Gilberd's. The whole lot extended 
from the north side of the present Hayden lot (six rods north 
of the Hayden Boulder at the fork of the roads) along the 
highway, Qo rods, and from the highway to the river." 

Mr. Hayden further says, in the letter from which we have 
already quoted; "I have no date for the removal of Francis 
Stiles to Saybrook, nearer than that furnished by his deed of 
the homestead to Eobert Saltonstall, Sept. 12, 1647, (above re- 
ferred to). He was then 'lately of Windsor.' The place was 

* The meaaow opposite Frnncls Stiles house-lot did not contain as many acres as he was 
entitled to In the d Istributiun, and the balance or his ,4Uota, 3:! acres, was set to him in Sequester 
Meadow. This lot was nearly half a mile nortli from his house. He sold it In lt>i4-5 to Wm. 
Hayden and Thomas Gilbert. 

Francis Stiles home-lot is bounded "north by Wm. Gaylord the younger," prt>ving that 
Stiles' lot was not recorded until as late as 1645; forGaylord's lot was a part of Stiles' house-lot 
until Jan. 24, l(U4-3, (the same date as the deeds to Hayden and Gilbert . The original home- 
lot of Francis Stiles was 13x18—:;! rods w:de on the street. His brother John had a lot 12 rods 
wide, adjoining his on the south. His brother Henry adjoining on the north 42 rods, (Henry's 
upland extends nearly to the river lying between the Great Meadow and Sequester Meadow), 
and adjoining Henry on the north was a lot lu rods wide, set to Jos Eggleston, then 10 rods 
which " was the home-lot that was Thomas Stiles' " This was sold by John Studder, of Hart- 
ford, to Johu Blssell, and I have little doubt the Eirgleston lot was orglnally Tho-. Stiles', 
though no deed appears on record. So the four Stiles brothers' home-lota lay together, estend- 
lug along the street 105 rods, and fiom the street to the river. j. H. H. 1801. 


llien in the occupation ami tenure of Thomas Gilbert and John 
Bancroft. Only two years and eight months before (Jan. 2'4, 
164:4-5), Gilbert had bought of Stiles a lot, (see above), which 
lot was sold (without date) to John and Jacob Drake, with a 
house, cellar, etc., of the laud tliat was Francis Stiles "^ — a not 
uncommon practice of substituting the name of the first owner 
for that of the grantor. It seems probable that Gilbert built 
that cellar and house which the Drakes' bought, before he be- 
came an occupant of Stiles' house. Possibly, he never lived on 
the place which the Drakes' bought, but built it to sell That 
house is a myth to me anyhow. When Jacob Drake married 
(1649), his father gave him the new part of his own house to 
live in; and in 1656, he bought a house south of the present 
Bissell's Ferry Eoad, and I never find any mention after of this 
Gilbert House. Gilbert afterwards bought of Josiah Hull, his 
home-lot (which was at first a part of Thomas Gunn's home-lot), 
lying on the west side of the highway, about where the present 
Welch house stands. He built on it, and sold it to Thomas 
Bissell, all without dates — but probably the last sale was when 
Bissell married in 1655. Gilbert continued to live on the 
Francis Stiles' place, apparently, until after the death of Henry 
Stiles — with which event Gilbert's family seems to have had a 
tragic connection, as related on page 29." 

" Francis Stiles also had, over the Great Kiver, 1,500 acres, 
400 by allotment of the town, 1,100 by purchase, 60 rods breadth 
by the river, length 3 miles; 'and there is in breadth 444 rods.' 
The affidavit of Stiles and Hayden given in Hisiortj of Windsor, 
(Revised edition), proves, I thiuk, that this lot, though some- 
what changed in form, was included in the " Saltoustall Park." 

In a letter dated Jan. 2, 1885, Mr. Hayden says: "In 
my former letter I jumped at a conclusion before I had all 
the facts. I have now the best of reasons for believing that 
Francis built and lived on the lot where tlie Chief Justice 
Ellsworth place now stands; but, perhaps, at the southeast corner 


of the upland, where a covered well still exists. The lot was 18 
rods on the highway, the northwest corner near the north elm. 
Most of the first settlers through the main street had their 
'meadow lots' in the rear of their home-lots; but some had 
very meagre lots in the meadow, w^hile others had additional 
meadows, as did Francis Stiles. You perhaps remember there 
is but a narrow strip ©f meadow between Henry Stiles' lot and 
the river; further north there is barely room for the houses 
between the road and meadow hill; here the meadow broadens 
to seventy or eighty rods. From Henry Stiles to 'New 
Brook, the north side of William Hayden's meadow;' this was at 
first called 'Sequestered Meadow.' Francis Stiles had about 
twenty-five acres of the north-middle of this meadow, 
lying next north of John St. Nicholas. A deed given to 
John and Jacob Drake (without date) of land formerly 
belonging to Mr. Stiles, specifies a house, cellar, fences, etc., 
so I jumped at the conclusion that this was Francis' house 
and place of residence. But the lot in question was sold by 
Stiles to Thos. Gilbert in 164:i-o, without buildings mentioned, 
and the deed above referred to was a description of the lot after 
Gilbert had built on it, and it had become the property of the 
Drakes. They doubtless furnished the description and took 
the name of the original owner instead of Gilbert's. Hayden 
and Gilbert bought in 1644-5, the latter had eleven and a half 
rods in width. Hayden had fifty-six rods. So much for Francis 
Stiles' lot in Sequestered Meadow. 

" The eighteen rods from the north elm, the width of Francis' 
lot, includes nearly all the lot lying between the present Judge 
Ellsworth place and the ruins of the Col. Ellsworth place. 
John Stiles' twelve rods covered the balance of that lot and the 
aforesaid ruin. 

"Possibly Bissell, Drake and St. Nicholas (who were not 
from Dorchester), bought their lots of Stiles, though their deeds 
are not recorded, except as they 'brought them in to the Recor- 
der ' — perhaps years later." 


Thouc^b we find him, in 16-47, spoken of as "of Say- 
brook;" and " of Stratford," apparently in March, 1654, when he 
was comphiined of to the Court for peppering XawiepuqiKjivwe, 
an Indian of that place, " in his body, with swauu shott, uppon a 
Sabbath day,"* yet we cannot fix the exact date of his first re- 
moval from Windsor. Cothren thinks that, as " he is not 
named in any Stratford record, there seems to be no reason for 
thinking he ever came to that town;" and, again that he may 
"very likely have been an original patentee," though "like 
others, he came not himself to dwell there." But Matthew 
Grant's Old Church Record gives, under date of Aug. 17, 1677, 
" what children have been born in Windsor from our beginning 
hitherto, so far as I am able to find out;" then "being gone, yet 
had children l)orn here." Among these latter he names " Francis 
Stills, 4 [children]." The probal^le birth-date of his fourth child, 
Benjamin, 1651, would show that he still resided in Windsor at 
that date. And Savage (X. E. Gen. Diet.) thinks that Francis 
Stiles died at Windsor, not later than 1653. In the seating of 
the meeting-house at Windsor, (as given in Stiles' H'lKt. and 
General of Ancient Windsor, pp. 149, 150), in January, 1659-60, 
among those "that have paid, and were placed in the long seats 
when they paid" — (these were two rows of long seats, accom- 
modating five persons to a seat, at 3s. apiece, or 6.s. for a man 
and his wife ), we find the name of " Mr. Stiles, 3s.," and his brother 
John Stiles. As Francis was the only one of the Stileses to 
whom the title of " Mr." was accorded, this record identifies him as 
then living in Windsor; or, at least, as still having a right to a 
seat in the meeting house there. But it is not conclusive evi- 
dence as to his being then resident in Windsor; for this record 
was of ^'■what dwelling houses are in the town, that the owners of 
them have paid for seats in the Meeting House;'' and, on that very 

♦ At a Particular Court, at Hartfoni, March 2, 16o3-l "A complaint being made to thf Court 
by yaanepcuiiwwwe, au Imlyan of Stratford, that Mr. [Francis] Styls hath shott la his body with

over the saiil ^[r. Styls to appear at, and give an account to the Particular Courte In Uartforil,

S. probably improved the hint of the Court, as we hear nothing further concerning the matter. 


list appears the Dame of Dr. Bray Rossiter, who had been several 
years gone from Windsor, and of Henry Stiles, deceased in 1651, 
Thomas Davey, died 1G48, etc. So that it only means in this, 
case, that it was the seat formerly occupied by Mr. Francis. 
Stiles, as an appm-tenance to the house which he sold in 1647. 

Mr. Orcutt suggests, that he removed to Stratford about 
1660, in coiToboration of which he cites the follou-ing from the 
Stratford Records: "Caleb Nichols purchased of Mr. Stills [Stiles, 
evidently, since there were none of the name of Still in town] 
one house lot, one acre and a quarter, bounded ^vith Mr. Fa\-re- 
child on the south, Isaac Nichols on. the west, my o^-n lot that 
was Francis Nichols', on the north, and the street on the East.'"^ 
No date is given to this record of purchase; but, being in the 
handwriting of Joseph Hawley, it must have been before 1666; 
and, from its relation to other records, was probably made about 
1660. Mr. Stiles' purchase of this property is not recorded, as 
far as can be ascertained. Besides this, we have the fact that 
Kobert Clark, who married Francis Stiles' widow, gave to her three 
sons by Stiles, about 50 acres of land, which there is no record of 
his having purchased. This when he had several children of his 
own, indicates that he had received it from his wife (Stiles' 
widow); and that Stiles had resided in Stratford for several 
years and was the owner of considerable property at Oronoke, 
and a home lot. 

In regard to the maiden name of Mr. Francis Stiles' Avife, 

I am somewhat in doubt, but I take it to have been Joan 

probably the "Joan Stiles, [aged] 35 years," who appears in the 
passenger list of the vessel which conveyed the Saltonstall 
party to America— see page 26. This Joan could not have 
been the Joan, sister of the four Stiles brothers, since, as will be 
seen by reference to page 21, she was married just previous to 
their embarkation and remained in England. Orcutt, in Hii^t. 
of Stratford, Coim., calls her S'lrah, and savs that she afterwards 

* Theeaat eiiO of Lot 32. lOst. Strafford, p. lOi. 


married " some years before 16G5," one Bobert Clark from New 
Haven — and thinks tlie marriage was probably after Clark's 
coming to Stratford. Clark was a successful farmer, an influen- 
tial citizen and a man of probity. She petitioned the General 
Court in 1665, concerning the estate of her first husband, 
Francis Stiles; she made her will June 5, 1677, and died in 16S2, 
leaving her property to her children by Stiles.

of the town the privilege of a forty-foot grant of land at Wor-

70. Lieut. Francis' Stiles, [i'>d\,( Benjamin,- Mr.Francis,' ) 
settled in Southbury Society. Of him President Stiles in his 
MSS. Genealogy, says: "I once saw him in 1747 — his son Ben- 
jamin was educated at Yale College, 1740— a very rich man"— 
this estimate probably referring to Lieut. Francis. He was 
one who (July 11, 1708), owned the baptismal, or "Half-way 
Covenant" of the Church during Kev. Mr. Stoddard's ministry; 
and was probably received to full communion.* 

Lieut. Francis's house was standing until recently, and was 
used as a barn by his descendant, Deacon David J. Stiles. The 
old house spoken of in Cothren.i History of IVoodbnry, as being 
the residence of Lieut. Francis Stiles, was blown to the ground 
about one year since— it being about 150 years old. Some 
parts of the timber being sound, have been manufactured into 
canes, chairs, &c., and if you should visit Southburv, you will 
see there many of Lieut. Francis's descendants walking with 
canes made from his old house, or sitting in chairs made from 
the same.—Leffer of Deacon David J. Sfiles, 1859. 

Lieut. Francis^ married Mary Johnson, of Stratford, Conn., 
Sept. 21, 1709, and died in 1748^ [te. 67, Pres. Sfiles' JISS.]; he 
resided and died in Southbury, Aug. 4, 1748 (Southbury Records).

96. Benjamin' Stiles, Esq., [89], (Lieut Francis;' Ben- 
jamin^- Mr. Francis,^) born Feb. 11, 1720, in that part of the 
ancient town of Woodbury, now included in Southbury, Conn.; 
was educated at Yale College, where he graduated in 1740 ; was 
a man of cultivated mind, large heart and considerable property 
for that day. He studied law and settled in the practice of his 
profession in his native town ; was No. 80 in the list of persons 
to whom land was divided in 1756, on Great Hill, Derby, Conn., 
in lots one and a half acres to each person ;* also, was on the 
List of Estates in Derby, 1718, by Authority of the Tpwu, valued 
£21. t His house, now occupied by his grandaughters, Ellen 
Esther and Alice Maria Stiles, and his great-grandson, is claimed 
to have been the first "upright house" (i. e., with the rear as

bigh as the front) erected in Litclifield County. Its bricks were 
burned in 1785, the house completed in 1787. There he con- 
tinued to reside and to enjoy an extensive practice for the times, 
until his death. He was frequently employed in important and 
difficult causes, and attained a yery reputable position at the 
bar. In 17o9 he appeared in several public offices in Litchfield 
County; in 1762, he was appointed to divide an Ecclesiastical 
Society; was Delegate to the General Court, 1760-1765; he repre- 
sented Woodbury in the General Assembly in the Ma'y sessions 
of 1755, 1756,1769, 1770. 1771; and in October session of 1762, 
1769, 1770, 1771.- During the Eevolutiou, he was suspected of 
being somewhat conservative in his views and was, on one oc- 
casion, cited before the General Assembly for "Contempt of 
Government ;" the complaint charging him with having said 
that the "Three Colony Bepresentatives in the Continental 
Congress were three good-for-nothing dogs, and no more fit for 
the place than his sick negro Jeff." His patriotism or integrity 
eould not, however, have been very seriously questioned by his 
fellow townsmen of Southbury, since he represented them at 
meeting held at Hartford, Jan. 3, 1788, for the ratification of 
the Constitution of the United States ; and he was at one time 
subsequently State Auditor. {Conn. State Archives, Rev. War i.,

worthy citizen and an honorable man. He was, during most of 
his life, sceptical in regard to the fundamental principles of the 
gospel; but, during his last illness, his eyes were opened; he 
accepted, most fully, the redemption offered by Christ's sacri- 
fice, and died iu the triumphs of a Christian's faith, and in hopes 
of a glorious immortality. His funeral services were attended

•1. Jonathan^ Stiles, [12], (Isaac,^ John^), see page 409 
was born at Stratford, Conn., .March 10, 1G88-9. President 
Stiles' MS. Genealogy says that he was "called Long 
Jonathan, being six feet, four inches high ;" and, again, speaking, 
in 1760, of the general small stature of the Stiles race, " the 
family, however, produced one Jonatlian Stiles, whom I have 
often seen, one of the largest men for stature in New England j 
he removed from Stratford to the Jersies and died there a few 
years ago, and since 175-1, perhaps at 60." 

The date of his removal to the Jersies cannot be exactly 
determined. His name figures quite frequently, in Stratford, 
(Conn.) records Jtud in Faii-field Co. (Conn.) records in land trans- 
actions between the years 1705 and 1720. His mark is affixed 
to a mortgage from David Jenkins to Jonathai. Stiles on lands 
in Stratford -£39.79, paid March 23, 17 U.— Fairf eld Co. Records,. 
Vol II, Pt. II, 350. A deed also, is recorded, December 3, 
1712, from him to Daniel Shelton, which conveys eleven acres, 
not yet taken up under contract with his " honored father, Isaac 
Stiles." He had taken up twenty-five acres, to wit : Two acres 
at. Quorum Hill, (now Huntington), twelve acres north-west of 
Long Hill and one of swamp by Long Hill — leaving eleven 
acres. (i?>/t?. 394). 


President Stiles (J/aS'. Genealogy) states that "he removed 
to Hanover, Huntiuf^ton Co., West Jersey, about 1726 or 1730;" 
and an intention of seeking a new home in that promising field 
of adventure, then known as " the Jersies " — which was at that 
time attracting many Connecticut men — may perhaps be found 
in the recorded deed i^Stratford Land Conveyances, Lib. II, 3-4) 
of a house, barn, kc, and fifty-nine acres of Land at Oronoke, 
sold by Jonathan Stiles, October 28, 1725 ; although he had 
not left Stratford as late as 1726, when he was one of the 
signers of a deed with the Indians. {Hist, Milford, Ct., 14"). 

But, we know that his wife Eebecca died in New Jersey, in 1731, 
so that President Stiles' suggestion that he removed from Con- 
necticut bet ween 1726 and 1730, maybe accepted as approximately 
correct. Again, the History of Morris Co.,K J., (published 1882) 
mentions a Jonathan Stiles, who was, in 1726, appointed one of the 
township officers and who died November 15, 1758. This date 
of death seems to identify him with our " Long Jonathan " — if 
so, he must, as early as 1726, have taken the preliminary steps 
towards settlement, if he had not altogether removed there. 
The almost entire absence of public records, at this early 
period, in the Jersies, as well as the cares and distractions 
which during the early days of any new settlement, tend to 
prevent the keeping of family records, or memoranda, leaves us 
much in ignorance as to the history of Long Jonathan's earlier 
beginnings — and the little we do know, has been picked up 
piecemeal and fitted together like the parts of a puzzle. 

From The Jerseymati of Oct. 9, 1885, published at Morris- 
town, N. J., by Mr. Lewis O. Stiles, to whom the descendants 
of Long Jonathan are greatly indebted for much of the informa- 
tion which we have been able to present concerning their 
ancestry and line, we copy the following concerning Morris 
Township, N. J. 

The first minutes of a court in Morris county date back to 
1740 and the first record in the old book bears date March 25 
of that year, and is an act which divides the county into the 


townships of Morris, Pequannock and Hanover. Before that 
time the whole county was le<^ally known as Morris Township. 

Pequannock embraced the region bounded by. "Passaic 
river, Pequannock river to the Great Pond, the Eockaway river, 
the west branch, to the head thereof, thence cross to lower end 
of said pond." Hanover embraced the country bounded by "a 
certain road from the bridge by John Day's up to the place 
where the same road passes between Benjamin and Abraham 
Persons, and thence up the same road to the corner of Samuel 
Ford's fence, thence leaving Samuel Ford to the right hand, 
thence running up to the road that leads from the old iron 
works towards 'Succasunuing,' crossing Whippany bridge, and 
from thence to Suckasunny and thence to the Great Pond at the 
head of Musconecung." The balance of the territory formed 
Morris township. 

The township of Morris was ordered by the court " to be 
and remain a township, district or precinct, and to be called 
and distinguished by the name of Morristown." Therefore the 
proper designation for this township is "the township of 

The first deed was recorded in this county in 1785, and the 
first mortgage in 1765. Previous to that the records were re- 
corded in Hunterdon county, Morris having been set off from 
that county by act of Assembly of March 15, 1738-9. Morris 
included in its original limits the territory now comprised in 
Sussex and Warren counties, and was named after Lewis Morris, 
at that time Governor of the Province. 

Hunterdon county was set off from Burlington in 1713, and 
was named after Gov. Eobert Hunter. Mercer county was also 
set off from Hunterdon. The bounds of Burlington county were 
first established in 1691:, but were not definitely settled 
until 1710. 

The first record of a marriage in Morris county is of date 
of Oct. 5, 1795. The first will on record is of date of Feb. 
4, 1804 


The old law provided for recording the births of slaves 
only. The last record of its kind was in ]828, of a child whose 
mother was a slave owned by Daniel Cory. 

The following records, subsequent to Jonathan's removal 
to Jersey, show his connection with his Connecticut origin, viz : 
June 20. 1735, Isaac Stiles conveys to Jonathan Stiles, of 
Hanover, Hunterdon County, West Jersey, in consideration of 
twelve acres, a right in two acres of land which said Isaac's 
grandfather Isaac had, etc. Fairfield County Record, book iv; 
Stratford Land Conveyance, page 208. 

Also, Sarah Cogswell, of Elizabethtown, Essex County, 
N. J., conveys to Jonathan Stiles, of Pequannoc, Morris County, 
N. J., quarter interest in a six acre right of commonage which 
said right is recorded to her by her "honored father, George 
Searles" — Fairfield County Record, Lib. ix., 66, recorded March, 

Jonathan Stiles died Nov. 15, 1758 (and is interred in the 
Cemetery of the First Presbyterian Church, at Morristown, N. 
J.), " in his 80 year." according to gravestone inscription; but 
his birth, in 1689 as recorded in Strafford, Conn., Town Records, 
would make him between 69 and 70 years of age at his death. 
As men's ages are frequently over-stated, especially when dying 
in very advanced years, we prefer to accept the Stratford birth- 
record, rather than the gravestone statement.

Chas. Head, Eeg'r. 

Jonathan Stiles was twice married— ^rs^, to the widow 
Rebecca Canfield— and, from the date of birth of their oldest 
child (1706) it would appear that this marriage must have 
occurred when he was only sixteen years old. Yet, when we 
consider his great size and probable early maturity, as well as 
the prevalence of marriages at an early age, in the circumstan- 
ces of a new country, this is by no means improbable. Judging 
from the date of the deed executed by his father to him (see 
page 408, ante.) it must have been given him on, or about the 
time of his marriage. Mrs. Rebecca (Canfield) Stiles died at 
" Stilestown," October 23, 1731, in her forty-eighth year.— /?i-

Sgt. John Stiles (see Family 5, page 48) of Windsor, Conn. John 
Stiles had deceased in November, 1728, and his posthumous son 
John was born April, 1729 ; and the widow must have married 
Jonathan Stiles somewhere between 1731 (the year of his first 
wife's death) and 1733, in which latter year the Court at Hart- 
ford, Conn., appointed Jonathan and his wife Elizabeth, " for-

Capt. Stiles was a deacon in the Cliurcli at Parsippany, N. 
J., resided at Stilestown, Morris County, X. J.; after death of 
his first wife he removed to Morristown, and Nov. 8, 1759, was 
chosen by the Ehlers of the First Church of Morristown, as one 
of the trustees, in place of Charles Howell, deceased. He died 
May 17, 1777, je. 68, of small-pox, and was buried in the 
Parsippany Church Graveyard. The fact of his having died 
during the Revolutionary war and of small-pox — traditionary 
among several branches of his descendants — happened to be 
" the connecting link" which eventually led to the indentification 
of his connection with the line of his son Ashbel. 

Mrs. Eachel Stiles was admitted to full communion in 
the First Presbyterian Church of Morristown, N. J., July o,

^^- Ebenezer ' Stiles. [2;, (Long Jonathan,^ Isaac,' 
John,^) born in Stratford, Conn., 1726; possessed ninch force of 
character and was an active and euterprisini^ business man. His 
ledgers, now in the hands of Lewis O. Stiles, of Morristown, N. J., 
show that his trade was that of a blacksmith, but his business 
gradually extended until he carried on very extensive iron-works. 
In 1768, he was a partner, with Silas Moore ;iud Jedidiah Gregory, 
in a " bloomery, or forge," on what is now Brant's Paper Mill 
Pond, at Morris Plains, X. J., which they purchased of the 
estate of John Estill, dec'd. He appears, also, on the Fairfield 
Co. (Conn.) Bee. in a deed, bearing date of 1753, given him by 
" Margery Gilbert, ot Bertie Co., North Carolina," widow of 
Jno. Gilbert, conveying her interest in certain lands in Stratford, 
Conn., which she had of her father George Saris. 

He resided at Hanover, Morris Co., N. J., and became a 
communicant of the First Presbyterian Church of that place. 
May 6, 1781 (Church Records). He died at the home of his son, 
Ebenezer, Jr., on Morris Plains, Nov. 22, 1814, i^. 88 years. His 
will was proved Dec. 23, 1814 ; Lib. B., p. 24, Morris Co. Proh. 
Rec, in which is mentioned a grandson, John Kinney, Jr. At 
the auction sale of his property, shortly after his decease, sev- 
eral slaves were sold, one of whom was purchased by the Rev. 


Samuel Fisher, then pastor of the Morristown Presbyterian 
Church. Mr. Ebenezer Stiles was buried in the graveyard of 
that church. 

He married (1) in New Jersey, Polly (this much of 

his first wife's name is revealed by entries in his business ledg- 
ers); he married (2) May 4, 1778, Abigail (daugliter of 

Conger, and widow of Simon) Gobill. (Records of First Presln/ff- 
rian Church, Morristown, N. J.) 

On July 4, 1779, Ebenezer Stiles and wife presented for bap- 
tism three of her "children by [her first husband] Simon 
Gobill, viz.: Abuer Gobill, born June 27, 1765 ; Luther_Goldll 
born May 24, 1770; Calvin Gobill, born March 6, 1773.'"

According to the Ch. Bee, she, therein named as "the 
mother of Ebenezer and Moses Stiles," died March 10, 1815, te. 
84, which gives us 1731 as the date of her birth ; yet the same

He served as a quartermaster during the Eevolutionary War. 
Though lie was not a pensioner, the U. S. Pension Office Record 
contains the application, dated December, 1839, of his widow, 
Mary, for a pension. She was then of Pequannock, N. J., and .t. 
86 years. She therein states that her husband was Issuing 
Commissary of provisions to the American Militia of Morris 
County, N. J., and was sometimes called Quartermaster. In the

he is styled " Commissary of Issue." He was a man of con- 
siderable property, had a good farm well stocked with cattle, 
and had money at command ; but, through the depreciation of 
Continental currency and the vicissitudes of war he lost a large 
part of his estate. His services were largely under the orders

110, Tii. Chester Newell,' born Sept. 5, 1825 ; graduated Yale 
, . College ; studied theology, but was never settled in 

a pastorate ; was for several years agent for the 
American Bible Society, for the Levant, traveled 
for the Society in Turkey, Egypt, Palestine, Meso- 
potamia, and died at Diarbeker, .Asia Minor, Dec. 
16, 1856 ; unmarried. 
In very early life disclosed a fondness for books and 
made rapid attainments in learning. At the age of 
twelve was sent to a classical school at Wantage, 
under the care of his uncle E. A. Stiles, where he 
was fitted for college. In March, 1841, he made a 
public profession of religion, uniting with "the 
Clove" Church near Wantage, N. J., and he soon 
decided to prepare for the ministry. Entering Yale 
College in the autumn of 1842, he graduated thence, 
in due time, with honor, and then pursued his 
theological studies at New Haven and Andover. 
Daring the latter part of his course of theological 
study, an affection of the eyes, which resisted the 
ordinary medical treatment, compelled a cessation 
from study and rendered advisable a foreign tour. 
Accordingly, in the spring of 1853, he sailed from 
New York, visiting England, the Continent, Rome, 
Greece. Constantinople, etc. While visiting at the 
Bible House, in this latter city, he and his com- 
panions were personally appealed to by two 
Armenians, native preachers, to remain in the East 
and devote themselves to the missirnary cause. Jt 
was an unexpected and extraordinary call, and one 
which to Righter, at least, seemed the call of duty. 


After a year of well-spent travel he retninefcl home, 
only to receive from the American Bible .Society an 
urgent request to its then vacant agency in the 
Levant ; au ajjpoiutment, which he accepted, and 
was ordained by the Presbytery ot Newark, to the 
work of the ministry. It was a work for which his 
clear piety, energy, perseverance, zeal and pru- 
dence, his heroic fortitude and high enterprise 
peculiarly fitted him He left his native laLd n-ain 
Sept. m, 1854, and visiting London, Puris, Geneva, 
Tariu, Rome, Malta and Smyrna, at each of which 
places he held interesting and important counsel 
with the native friends of the l>ible cause, he 
reached Constantinople on December 1st. The 
Crimean War was then in progress, and though the 
whole Eastern world was greatly disturbed, yet he 
found that a spirit of en(iuiry was beginning to 
stir the people of the country, and that the pres- 
ence of four large armies, of itself, opened a vast 
and interesting field for the circulation of the Bible. 
He was soon, as the agent of the American Bible 
Society, in active sympathy and co-operation with 
the agent of the British and Foreiga Bible Society, 
and others who were supplying the soldiers and 
sailors of the British Army and shipping, and the 
sick and wounded in the hospitals. He made a 
lengthened and extensive visit to the British and 
French armies in the field, securing permission 
from the authorities for the distribution of Bibles 
among the soldiers and also among the Eussian 
prisoners; and he also succeeded in establishing a 
"Bible and Religious Book Depository" at Con- 
stantinople, in which Bibles, etc., in five difl:erent 
languages were placed on sale for the people of dif- 
ferent nationalities. In 1855, he visited Greece 
and Egypt and the Holy Land, to enquire into the 
condition of those countries with reference to the 
Word of Life, and to provide for the supply of their 
destitution as far as it could be done. From this 
trip he returned in the Spring of 1856 and spent 
the Summer in Constantinople in the work of Bible 
distribution, and in perfecting his plans for spread- 
ing it over the East; as also in visiting the military 
hospitals, etc. On Sept. 1st he set out, with Rev. 
Mr. Jones, Secretary of the Turkish Missions Aid 
Society, upon a visit to the interior stations of Asia 


Minor. On December 6th, Mr. Kighter was taken 
ill, and with difficulty reached the Missionary 
station at Diarbekir, Assyria, and the house of Kev 
David H. Nutting', M. D., where he was soon sur- 
rounded with all the care and sympathetic atten- 
tion of a loving Christian family. Despite, how- 
ever, all that could be done for him. he died on 
Dec. 16, 1856, in calm and beautiful submission 
to the will of God; and was buried in the Syrian 
burial ground. His loss was most deeply de- 
plored, not only by his relatives ami intimate 
friends but by all those who had made his acquaint- 
ance during his travels and residence abroad, in- 
cluditig many persons of high official standing, and 
who all united in the most touching expression of 
their respect for his peculiarly rare and noble char- 
The Eev. Samuel Irena^us Prime, D. D., the well known 
author, and editor of the New York Observer, who 
was his associate in much of his foreign traveLs and 
was very intimate with him, has gracefully em- 
balmed his memory in a little volume, entitled: 
"The Bible m tlie Leuanf: or. The Life and Letters of 
the Rev. C. K Righter, A'jent of the American Bible 
Society in the Levaht," * in which he says: "Eighter 
was a genial, warm-hearted, noble young man. A 
good scholar, a fluent speaker, ready in conversation, 
full of ardor, enthusiasm and energy, buoyant and 
hopeful, never doubtful or afraid, never sick or 
weary, with exuberant spirits and inexhaustible 
powersof enjoyment or suffering. * * What was to 
be done, he was ready to do; what was to be l>orne, 
he was ready to suffer. Prompt in his decisions, 
tenacious of his purposes, self-satisfying and oblig- 
ing. * * * His principles of right and wrong 
were intelligently settled. Eeligion was a well- 
spring of life and joy in his soul. In all places and 
times he was the same earnest, outspoken, unifoim 
Christian; never obtruding his opinions on those 
to whom they were not due, but never ashamed, 
afraid or unable to give a reason for the hope that 
was in him. Yet he was modest with all his self- 
reliance, gentle with iron firmness, easily to be en- 
treated, while he was bold as a lion."

Dr. Prime always felt that on one occasion (at Nablous. 
in Syria) when surrounded by hostile, or treacher- 
ous Bedouins, he owed his life to Mr. Kighter's 
bold and impetuous interposition. 

We close our too brief account of this noble young man 
by an extract from a letter written by the Hon. 
Carroll Spence, U. S. Minister to Turkey, dated 
Constantinople, Jan. 7, 1857: "Although his stay 
here has been short, his efforts in behalf of Chris- 
tianity have been untiring, and the good he has 
done here by the distribution of the Word of God 
will remain behind him as a monument of his 
pious exertions, and will, as it develops itself in 
coming years, keep alive his memory in the recol- 
lection of those who were witnesses of his Christian

133. Job' Stiles, [41] (Copt John,' Long Jonathan;' 
Isaac,- John,^) born about 1760 (Pension Affidavit): was a 
veteran Eevolutionarv soldier and Indian fighter. The U. S. 
Pension Office contains his application for a pension, which was 
granted him, and from which we learn that he enlisted at 
Morristown, N. J., December, 1776, with Capt. Wade, in Col. 
Martin's K J. regiment, and was discharged June 7, 1777, at 
Newburgh, N. Y. He was engaged in the battle of Long 
Island, Aug. 27, 1776 (probably on a previous enlistment, 
with Capt. Bates, in Col. Martin's regiment, from June to 
December, 1776); also in those of White Plains, N. Y., October, 
1776; Brandywiue, 1777; Germautown, October 4, 1777; Tren- 
ton, December 26, 1777; Princeton, January 3, 1777, Monmouth, 
June 28, 1778. [The Official Poster of N. Y. troops in the Conti- 
nental Line, gives him as "private First Battalion, second es- 
tablishment ; Corporal, Capt. Mead's Co., First Begiment."] 
From the Aniuds of Binghandon, N. 7., by J. B. Wilkinson. 
page 23, note, and page 27, wo quote the following record of his 
Indian experiences: 


" It will uot be thought improper here to iutroduce au an- 
ecdote of a veteran soldier^ Job Stiles, of this campaign, (Sulli- 
van's Indian Expedition, 1779). He is an aged man, now living 
in Ridgeburj, Pa., a little off from the valley of the ChemuDg, 
but within our historic range. He loves to tell the story of his 
warlike deeds, which were many indeed and brave. He 
enlisted into his country's service when only about 
seventeen years of age, in the commencement of the war, 
and served bravely through it. While the army was 
passing up the river from Wyoming, a little above Towauda, 
when it was nearly or quite dusk. Stiles, with three other 
men, x\ndrew Burnet, of Whippany, N. J., one Murphy, 
and' one Butler, were together, detached somewhat from the 
main army. They heard a strange noise upon their left hand, 
which they were about to let pass as the hooting of owls. But 
Murphy stopped his comrades and said, in a low tone, ' these 
are not the noises of owls ; there are Indians near us.' Upon this 
he proposed that his three companions remain where tliev were, 
but concealed, while he should go back some distance, and rise 
the hill in the direction toward the hootings which they had 
heard. The device succeeded, for the little noise made by him in 
rising the hill, the Indians, who proved to be three in number, 
hearing and not being able to discover any object, their fears 
were the greater ; they ran precipitately down almost upon the 
three men that lay concealed, and these singled each his Indian, 
fired, and killed the three." 

"Job Stiles was also one of eight men, under a sergeant, 
sent to Gen. Clinton by Gen. Sullivan, when he arrived at Tioga 
Pt., to let him know the route up the Susquehanna to Chenango 

River, then up to the ; thence easterly to 

the outlet of Otsego Lake. He says they were about or nearly 
two weeks in performing the journey ; that, in consequence of a 
continued and drenching rain, which continued nearly all the 
time, their provisions were nearly all spoiled, which obliged 


them to throw them away and depend upon the roots and ber- 
ries of the forest and what game they might chance to meet 
with. These all proved but scanty resources. They came near 
famishing. One of their number they were obliged to leave 
near the forks, in consequence of his sickness and exhaustion. 
They built him a little cabin and a fire and, painful as it was, 
they were obliged to leave him to his fate. The- letters for 
Clinton, which were two, they kept rolled in two handkerchiefs 
during the saturating rains and under their armpits, one carried 
by the sergeant and the other by Stiles. When they arrived at 
Clinton's Camp, and even for days before, they were so en- 
feebled that they could scarcely travel. When the generous 
and provident commander learned how long they had been with- 
out food, he ordered them into a tent near his own, without say- 
ing a word about provisions. Shortly a little soaked biscuit, 
and but a little too, was sent them ; they were kept upon a lim- 
ited quantity of this, and a little soup for some days, ere they 
were allowed to eat to their satisfaction." 

Craft's Hlstorii of Bradford Co., Pa., 1878, says : " Job 
Stiles resided three miles south of Wellsburg, on the farm 
owned by Wm. Dickenson. He was a Eevolutionary soldier and 
had a large family, but all are gone. Some of his family came 
in as early as 1810 or '11. He married his wife in tlie barracks. 
She Avas a Buruham, a daughter of Asahel Burnham. Mr. Stiles 
and his Avife died on the farm adjoining Vincent Owen's." In 
1818 he was of Wells, Bradford Co., Pa., then aged 58 ; in Sep- 
tember, 1820, he was of Kidgebury, in the same county; his wife 
aged 60, had been in ill health for 20 years ; they had a son 
aged 2-4 years who could not labor, a son aged 18, and a 
daughter, aged 20, confined with palsy. 

Job Stiles, according to U. S. Pension Office Record, died 
September 15, 1841, leaving a widow; but whether the wife men- 
tioned in his pension petition of 1820, is unknown ; if so, she 
did not apply for the pension to which she was entitled at his 


death. If auotlier wife, she couki not liave obtained a pension 
until I80O. A letter of Mrs. Isaac Baldwin, of Eid«rel)iirv, Pa., 
to whom we are indebted for name of his second wife ( Hester 
Green), says that Job Stiles was a widower and probably 85 or 
90 years old at the time of his death. 

Job Stiles married (1) Burnham; (2) Hester Green. 


134. I. Aaron," ; probably the individual thus men- 

tioned in a sketch of South Creek, in Craft's 
History Bradford Co., Pa., 1878 : " Aaron Stiles, 
father of Stephen, was living on the first little 
clearing below us, where John Gillet now lives. 
Gillet owns a part of the place. They were 
here when we came. The old people died here. 
The family have all left the township." Mr. 
Stephen H. Stiles thinks he must have settled 
at South Creek about the time that his father 
settled at Ridgebury (adjoining), which is not 
improbable; and he has also learned that Aaron's 
son, Stephen, removed from South Creek to Pot- 
ter Co., Pa. It is also said that " Stephen Stiles 
delighted in law suits, and next to having one 
himself, he desired to have one for some one

137. Deacon Aaron' Stiles, r-^'l (C^'pt- John,' 


Jonathan,^ Isaac,- John,\) born at Morristown, N. J., 



He volunteered at the age of 16 (See note p. 517, ante] in the 
Revolutionary service, in 4th Battalion, N. J. Continental 
regiment (Second Establishment). His petition, filed in U. S. 
Pension O^Ve,* relates, August, 1836, he then l)eiug 75 years old, 
that " when nearly sixteen years old he enlisted, while residing in 
Hanover, Morris County, N. J., May, 1777, for three years or during 
the war, with Capt. Ward, who was succeeded by Capt. Bunnel, iu 
Col. Spencer's Regiment. [The Official Roster of N. -J. troops 
in the Continental Line, gives him as a private in Col. Spencer's 
(2nd) Regiment; Capt. Jonathan Holmes' Co. | At Eliza- 
bethtowu and Scotch Plains he was stationed during the sum- 
mer watching the British movements, guarding the lives and 
property of the inhabitants and then his regiment was ordered, 
with the main army, to Wilmington, 'Del., where they erected 
forts to check the British advance towards Philadelphia. At 
the battle of Brandywine, Sept. 11, 1777 [being then of the 
2d Regiment, -Ith Battalion, Second Establishment"!, he was 
badly wounded (fracture of shoulder socket), which confined 
him at Bethlehem, Pa., until November, when he joined his 
regiment at Whitemarsh, but was furloughed until April, 1778, 
then rejoined the army at Valley Forge. Upon the evacuation 
of Philadelphia, Gen. Washington left Valley Forge in pursuit 
and Stiles was detailed as one of a baggage guard and was thus 
engaged when the battle of Monmouth occurred, June, 1778. 
When the army went into winter quarters, his regiment was de- 
tached to Minisink, X. Y., to protect the frontier settlements, 
then threatened by the Indians, and was employed during the 
winter in the building of block-houses. Late in the Spring of 
1779, he, w^ith his regiment, marched to Easton, Pa., from thence 
to Wyoming, to join Gen. Sullivan's Expedition against the In- 
dians and Tories. On the march to the Genesee River they had 
a severe conflict at Newtown, (since Elraira,) N. Y., Aug, 29, 1779, 
besidesother skirmishes, and burned the Indian towns and de- 
stroyed their crops, on their route. Returning to New York 


bis regimeut remained tliere until 1780, u part of the time under 
command of Gen. Lafayette; frequently employed in skirmishes 
with marauding parties and preventing foraging and plunder- 
ing by the enemy, and was in the battle of Springfield, X. J., 
June 13,1780,under Gen. G.Greene. While in winter quarters near 
Pompton, N. J., a mutinous spirit manifested itself among the 
troops, but the impending revolt was quelled and two of the 
principal ofi"enders tried and shot. Mr. Stiles received a pen- 
sion, commencing May 1, 1786, at which time he was living at 
Hanover, X. J., and was transferred to the N. Y. Pension Kolls 
Sept. 4, 1836, at which time he was residing in Tompkins (now 
Deposit), Delaware Co., N. Y., his home being on the Delaware 
River, three miles above the village of Deposit. His grandson, 
Mr. Stephen Hathaway Stiles, of West Burlington, Bradford 
Co., Pa., says of the wound which he received, in the left shoul- 
der, at Brandy wine, that he often saw the scar, and that, from 
its effect, he was unable to raise his arm to any considerable 
height; and remembers his appearance when drawing water, with 
a sweep, from a deep well near his house, as being unable to 
use the left arm as freely as he did the right. He also says: 
"I was allowed the sole ownership of his old Revolutionarv 
flint-lock musket, which I played with, tinkered at and kept until 
it w^as entirely useless as a weapon and I disposed of it, as many 
another boy has done, to my present regret." 

Deacon Aaron Stiles was a constituent member and Deacon 
of the Presbyterian Church, and it is remembered of him that 
he always stood while saying grace, or at family prayers. He 
was a most regular attendant at church until his death, from 
palsy, at Stiles Settlement, near Deposit, N. Y, June 24, 1843, 
ie. 81. 

Mrs. Catharine (Conkliu) Stiles died at the same place, Nov. 
23, 1833, «. 73.

He at one time owned Shougum Lake, in Morris Co., X. J., 
where he conducted au iron forge, and also had a manufactory 
of edged tools and general forging at his homestead in Morris 
Plains. This was called the ''Hopewell Iron Works." He was, 
also, a captain in the Xew^ Jersey militia. Physically, he was a 
large and powerful man, possessing great energy, and was au 
indefatigable worker — by means of which, indeed, he brought 
on a paralysis of his lower limbs, which confined him to his 
house for several years before his death. This occurred at 
Morris Plains, X. J., on Oct. 6, 1839, at the age of 72 years 2

213. V. Abraham^ Ogden,« (M. D.), born at Morris Plains, 
. N. J., Jan. 31, 1802; after attending school at 

Morristown, he entered the office of Dr. John 
^- Jones, of that town, as a student, taking lec- 
tures also at the Medical Department of the 
' . University of the City of New York, whence he 

graduated. After practising a year in his 
- ■ ■ native town, he located (1828) at Harmony, N. 
J., where he continued (with the exception of 
one year spent at Finesville) actively engaged 
in his profession until 1860, when he relin- 
quished practice. As a physician he was 
prompt and attentive, quick at diagnosis, care- 
ful in prescribing, and emphatic in his direc- 
tions to both patient and nurse — and. it is 
said, very stern where his orders were dis- 
obeyed. He was undoubtedly the Andrew 
Jackson of the medical profession in Warren 
County, N. J. Much of his practice was accom- 
plished on horseback. In politics he was 
always a Democrat, and no man ever wielded 
more influence in Harmony township. 

One who knew him well thus writes : " He 
had piercing black eyes that seemed to look 
straight through a man, and a yard or two 
beyond. There was no height to which he 
might not have climbed, had he avoided a few 
, mistakes in early life; these crippled and sad- 
dened his whole life. He was generally genial 
• and sparkling with wit; would sometimes sink 
J Dto gloo iny tits of melancholy, lasting a week 

monumentrAb7am.^'' schoolbook autograph; though it was afterwards spelled Tli:^;;:^ 


/or more. He was generous to the poor, and 
helped many a poor man to f^et a start in busi- 
ness, sometimes to his own great loss. He was 
one of those forceful spirits who dared to do 
right against tremendous odds. He was very 
feeble for several ^-ears before his death, and 
seemed gradually to wear out. He died at 
Harmony, N. J., March 27, 1883." 

He 'married (1) Dec. 13, 1827, Phebe 
Maria (daughter of "William) Shelley, at Little- 
ton, N. J., who died ; married (2) Feb. 4, 

• 1843, Hannah (daughter of John P. and Cath- 

erine) De Witt, of Harmony, N. J., where she 
was born Jan 17, 1819. He left no children. 

His will, after amply providing for his 
widow (who resided, 188(), at Harmony), made 
liberal bequests to some fifteen nephews and 
nieces, and to the Methodist Episcopal Church 
of Harmony, the sum of 81,000 as a permanent 
fund, the interest of which is to be used for the 
support of the Gospel in said church. Two 
years before, he had given the church ground 
'• ' sufficient for a cemetery. 

His remains are interred in the Morristown 
Old Cemetery, near the base of a marble granite 
shaft, twelve feet high, in the cottage style, in- 
scribed simply with his name, dates of bir^h and 
death, and the name of Stiles, upon its base. 

He had one child by his first marriage — 
Phebe Guerin, who died Nov. 12, 1832, ae. 4 
years 4 months 20 days.

Hathaway, of Tompkins, Delaware Co., N. Y., Dec. 7, 1805. 
She was born in Philadelpliia, Pa., Dee. C, 1787, from -whence 
she went to Morristown, N. J., and when 18 years of ajre, came 
to Delaware Co., X. Y., on horseback, wdth her brothers, in the 
winter seas(»u, between Christmas and New Year s. 

Stephen was, in early life, a shoemaker, and at the time of 
his marriage was scarcely able to read ; but, after his conversion, 
began his studies, with marvelous pluck, and continued them 
with indomitable energy, even up to his death. His earlv efforts 
were not considered very brilliant, but he was highly esteemed 
for his sterling sense aud integrity. During his later years, how- 
ever, he became somewhat noted for his oratory. His use of 
language was correct and choice, the result probably of his ex- 
tensive readiug, for he had gradually acquired an extensive li- 
brary of the best authors. He was a constituent member of the 
Baptist Church, at Deposit, N. Y., where he preached and for 
which he did much. He labored, far and near, in arousing in- 
terest and collecting funds for needy churches, and was a pio- 
neer church-builder in Southern New York, going from place to 
place and preaching wherever opportunity offered. His nephew, 
S. D. Stiles, of 201 Wilson street, Brooklyn (E. D.), says that 
Rev. Stei)hen died, as he thinks, at Mechauicsville, N. Y. — that 
he did not enter the ministry until about 30 years of age — 
and that he was statiiuied (in the Methodist Episcopal Church '?) 
at Beekinantown N. Y., Sheldou and Albany, Yt., aud that his 
obituary notice was published in the Christ ian Adcocate. Rev. 
Stephen Stiles died Nov. 11, 1853, :e 71.

497. Edward Augustus' Stiles, [302] (Johu:^ Deacou 

John,' John,' Long Jounfhau;' Isaac,- John'), horn at Wautape, 
N. J., Dec. 4, 1808, and when lie was two years old bis parents 
moved into Yernon Township, Sussex Co., N. J. In 1819, tliey 
located on the farm where he spent the greater part of his active 
years, and where he died. He commenced a course of prepara- 
tion for the Christian ministry, but for some reason suspended 
his studies and opened a small private school, in 1833, at the 
farm house. He commenced with five or six boys, but the 
teacher had found his calling, and, as he developed with his work, 
the school rapidly increased to a size and reputation far beyond 
his early hopes, and at last assumed shape as " Mt. Eetirement 
Seminary," which he conducted with great success for more than 
thirty years. For many years there wjis an average of 7o pupils 
under his instruction. and the school was in full vigor when he 
left it (1865) to the charge of his son-in-law, Mr. Hartwell. The 
graduates of this Seminary are to be found in every part of our 
laud, many of them filling high positions and all of them ready 
to testify to the singleness of purpose, the steady devotion to duty 
and the considerate kindness of his supervision, as well as to the 
thorough and practical tone of his instruction. In 1809, he was 
appointed Superintendent of Schools in Sussex Couuty,'and the 
constant growth in all matters material relating to the educa- 
tional system of the County, the gradual elevation of public sen- 
timent and the increased efficiency of teachers, all attested the 
success of his administration. For more than forty years he 
was devoted to tiie work of education, and whether es^timated by 
his capability, his devotion or his ample success, he well deserved 
the title of "Educator." He had excellent common sense and 
a most reliable judgment ; and, behind all his words ami actions 
was a character so far above reproach that his purity of motive 


was never questioned. His, indeed, was a character of marked 
purity, integrity and Christian consistency; wliich, with his great 
gravity and dignity of manner, combined with a heart full of 
warm sympathy and liberality for every good cause, produced a 
widely felt and lasting impression for good upon the times and 
the community in which he lived. 

In the church, of which he truly was " a pillar," and for 
some years an influential Kuling Elder, was ever dear to him, 
and was largely indebted to him and his family for steadfast sup- 
port during a period of great depression and discouragement. 
He died as he had lived, in the faith, his last articulate utter- 
ance being "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth from all sin ;" 
and was borne to his final resting place by his fellow-elders of 
the Clove Church, assisted by some of the teachers of the neigh- 
borhood. He died in 1875, a?. 67 years. See also a memoir 
published in the New Jersey State Educational Report for 1875, 
pp. 17, 84, and an appreciative notice which appeared soon 
after his death in the Xew Jersey Herald.

The Essex and Dnion Connties, N. J., Branch* 



From memoranda kindly furnished us by the late S. H. 
Congar, of Newark, N. J., we learn that 

John Stiles, tiled February 14, 1754, se. 6ot {gravestone 
inscr-iption in Old Church yard at Newark); also that M.\iiY, 
daughter of John (probably the same) and Kehekah, his wife, died 
February 19, 1748, x. 24; also, that John (probably son oi John 
and Rebekah aforesaid and brother of JIanj) died in 1763, x. 33 ; 
and that Saeah, wife of (this latter, probably) John, died 1811, «. 
85. From notes of the will of this second John, dated 1760, we 
learn that his wife was named Sarah ; and that he had a daugh- 
ter 3Iary and sons William and Isaac. 

It is now (1894) thirty-eight years since we received these 
memoranda— and thus far, we have not been able to connect 
this John with the Connecticut, or other families of Stiles. But, 
we may venture to express the opinion that the John first men- 
tionedi^ who died in 1754, x. 65, and who, therefore, was born 

• The present Union County (originally a portion of Essex County. N. J., having all 
records in Newark. N. J.) in 1S57 was set off. with its County seat and all subsequent records 
at Elizabeth. 

t Thf EsseJtriS. J.I County Records show a John Stiles, of Newark (probably this man), to 
have been Deputy Sheriff of the County in December, 1748: and in October. 1749- 


about 1689, )ncuj have been the JoJoi (brother of "Long Jon- 
athan"; son of Isaac, and grandson of John Stiles, the emigrant 
of "Windsor, Conn. True, we have not the date of birth of Isaac';3 
son John; and President Stiles' Mss. says he "died unmarried be- 
fore 1710" — while Cothrea (Hlston/ of Anclod Woodbury, Conn.,) 
says he does nv)t find him on the Stratford Records: See Page 
408. But, the date of his birth as gained (with "more or less" 
accuracy) from gravestone record of his death, would make him 
born about 1689, and it is not at all an impossible conjecture 
that he may have accompanied his brother "Long Jonathan" to 
the Jerseys — and have drifted beyond President Stiles' knowl- 
edge — which so far as concerns this branch of the family, seems 
to have been mostly of a traditionary nature. 

Correspondence, in 1856, with Miss Susan M. Stiles, of Eliz- 
abeth, N. J., ]>laced us in possession of the following collection 
relative to a branch of the family, in New Jersey, descended from 
one William Stiles — and which we are inclined (from intuition, 
perhaps, rather than from any positive data), to consider as 
belonging to the line of John, of Newark, above mentioned. 
Yet, the date of William's birth (1734) proves that he could 
not have been Joint, Jr.\s son — though he and his brother Isaac 
(see Note t, page 603) may have been a brother of John, Jr., 
and sous of John, Sr., and wife Rebekah. 

Mr. A. P. Stiles, of Springfield, N. J., lias an original order 
or note, given by William Stiles to John Stiles, and dated Feb. 
21, 1760. " For the sum of Ten Pounds, New Jersey currency, 
eight shillings the Pound, witnessed by Elias Boudinot and made 
payable to William Peartree Smith, at Elizabeth Town," — which 
he considers a proof of connection between John and William. 
He says: "As to whether John was an uncle or brother to 
William, I have not been able to satisfy myself. I have heard 
my father speak of an aunt of his father's, who was named 
Mary, and resided in Newark previous to the Revolution. I 
am inclined to think that the William above was a brother of 



John, Jr., of Newark, who died 1763, a?. 33; if so, Mary, the daugh- 
ter of John woiikl be aunt to William Stiles, and this would he 
in accordance with my memory of talks I have had with my 
father concerning his great-aunt Mary of Newark." 
Our genealogy therefore— commences fairly with 


1. William^ Stiles, (./oA>//'— probably son of Isaoc^ 
son of John,' the Connecticut Emigrant), born in Newark, N. J., 
Sept. 6, 1733; passed most of his active life in Elizabethtown, 
N. J., and was a cabinet-maker by trade. His great-grandson, 
Abner V. Stiles, of Springfield, N. J., (to whom, more than any- 
one else, we are indebted for the history of this family) now has 
a desk and a chest of drawers combined, and in a perfect state 
of preservation, although made 125 years ago, which is a splen- 
did specimen of old fashioned workmanship, and of the abilities 
of William Stiles. 

Mr. William Stiles married, June 7, 1761, Phebe (daughter 
of John and Constant) Spinning, who was born Oct. 31, 1736, 
and died Nov. 22, 1822 (Gravestone at Elhahethtoicn, X. J.) 
Mr. A. P. Stiles' father well remembered her as dressing after 
the old Holland stvle, in short gown and worked petticoats.

stone says 1787, le. 47^).

It is related of him that, when quite a lad, he was employed in 
removing the horses and cattle beyond the reach of the British 
Tories when they invaded Elizabeth, by driviug them west of 
what is now known as Springfield Mountain. The Records of 
the Presbyterian Church at Basking Ridge, N. J., show William 
Stiles and his wife to have been members, (she received in May, 
1796), also (1835) their children JVilUam, Betsy and Ahaer. Betsy, 
(Elizabeth) had joined the church in Oct. 1822.

A Connecticut w New Jersey Family. 

In 1889, my consiuly correspoudeut, Lt^wis O. Stiles, of 
Morristowu, N. J., wrote me as follows: " I lijive struck a puz- 
zler (to me) iu tbe Stiles family. A few days since, it came to 
ray knowledge that there was a Stiles family living four miles 
from here; and, indeed, one member of it (Mrs. Guerin) right 
here in Morristown. I have just obtained from her a record of 
a portion of the family, which I give you. She says they came 
from Stamford (not Stratford) Conn.; and, what bothers me is, 
that none of these names are to be found in the Connecticut, 
nor in the Massachusetts genealogy. There are lots of them, 
and among them men of wealth and position. How have they 
been missed?" 

The record which he sent rae, when " pieced out " with 
some memoranda taken some years ago from Littell's Passaic 
Valley (N. J.) Genealogies, (a work which is singularly deficient 
in dates), enables me to set down the following account of a 
Stiles family of which, from time to time, I have had "glimpses," 
as it were ; but with which I have thus far been unable to get 
in satisfactory communication, either personally or by letter. 

The Passaic Genealogies gives a brief account (no dates, 
only names) of the families of a Xoah, Jr., a Mervin, and a Wil- 
liam Stiles, brothers, and the sons of a "NoAH of Co)i}iecticvt.'" 
These brothers married three sisters of the Littel name. 

From the family record sent by Mr. L. O. Stiles, we find 
this " Noah, Sen., of Connecticut," to have been 


1. Noah' Stiles, born at Stamford, Conn., Sept. 31, 1773; 
married Dec. 31, 1799, at Greenwich, Conn., by Rev. Isaac Lewis, 


to Mary Marshall. He died at Red Bauk, N. J., Nov. 25, 1848 ; 
his wife Mary died at Greenwich, Conn., March 8, 1818.

Note. I have been unable to connect this family with the main Connecticut 
line. The only connection possible (for, thanks to Pres. Ezra Stiles' labors, our 
earlier generations of that line are very perfectly recorded) would be with Noah, Jr., 
|No. 140, page lOtJi, and that would be possible only on the presumption that sub- 
sequently to Pres. Stiles' record (made about 17*)4) he had a son Noah who survived 
and removed to Stamford, Conn. H. R. S.

A Genealogy of the Descendants of Robert Stiles 




1- Robert' Stiles, aeconipanied by his sister LuCY, * 
emigrated from Eu^daiid, (probably Staffordsliire-I-) about the 
year 1680, aud was among the early settlers of New Jersey. 
His first settlement was at PhiladelpLJa, Pa.,+ where, and also 

" 1. Lucy Stiles, became the wife of John Rudderow. 

This gentleman, tradition says, had come to Amedca. as a surveyor, some little 
time before iveign of Charles II. i the coming of Robert Stiles and his sister, and, 
being discouraged with his prospects here, contemplated a return to his old home, 
which coming to the knowledge of William Penn. that gentleman oflFered him, as 
an encouragement to stay, a ."square" of land in Philadelphia; which, however, 
failed to bring contentment to him. While thus awaiting a chance to sail, a ves- 
sel arrived from Enpland, among whose passengers were Robert Stiles. and his sis- 
ter Lucy, to whom he was under an engagement of marriage. So, as his heart was 
now Siitisfied. he objected no longer to tarrying on this side of the ocean— was 
soon wedded to the girl of his choice, and purchasing a tract of land on Penne- 
sauken Creek, nearly or quite adjoining Robert Stiles' land, he builded him a house 
and settled there. 

Their children were: 

2. i. M.\RY,2 born 1081; married Nicholas Caulau (a Frenchman) res- 

ident of Philadelphia, who died soon after marriage, leaving no is- 

t John Clements' F.mii;ni,il S,-/ll,'rs of Newton Tmctiship. Old Gloucrster Co.. N.J.. 
mentions him as 'a Staffordshire Englishman who settled at Cooper's Creek. Waterford (now 
Delaware Co..r' and that he -settled on the north side of the south branch of Peuisauken 
Creek." Page ^ 26.

at Gloucester, N. J., he estal)lishe(l a busiuess of whicli Gabriel 
Thomas, the first historiau of that Colour, says : "The trade 
of Gloucester County consists chietiy in Pitch, Tar and Ilosin, 
the latter of which is made by Robert Styles, an excellent Art- 
ist in that sort of work, for he delivers it as clear as any Gum 
Arabick." In 1695, he purchased of Charles Read, 425 acres 
of land lying on the branches of Penisaukin Creek, three miles 

sue. He was devotedly attached to his wife, and willed his large 
fortune entirely to her. She married (2) Joshua Mad doc, V)y whom 
she had Issue (li Mary, who married John Wallace, who had a son 
John, who died at an advanced age in LSSS, a well known citizen of

Nicholas Gaulau, died and were interred in Christ Church Burial

Note. — Mrs. J^eedles, the author of the foregoing sketch, says, in a letter, 
dated 4 mo. 2, 1885: "The Stileses of Burlington County, as a family, generally, 
in our line, have either been members of, or much inclining to, the Episcopal 
Church — I think I might say. from generation to generation. One reason of my 
mentioning this is to explain that I have not had the advantage of Friends' Records 
to help me in m}' work, except in a very few instances." She also mentions, " In 
the Philadelphia Records and Minutes of Friends, I met with the name of Joseph 
Stiles, who in 17^1, was granted a certificate of removal from Berks Monthly 
Meeting, recommending him to Philadelphia Monthly Meeting — a son of Benja- 
min Stiles. The latter, with his wife, are spoken of as being worthy people, par- 
ticularly ' his worthy and tender mother, she being deceased;' and desiring Joseph's 
preservation and growth in grace. It mentions his absence on the Seas. In this 
Certificate the name of Henry Stiles also occurs. There appears to have been a 
Joseph, who settled at Evesham, Burlington County, West Jersey, years ago, with a 
wife Flannah (I think) IloUtmjshead, who probably are of this Jersey family. 

"Tobias Stiles' wife was also buried in Haddontield (N.J.) Friends' Burying 
Ground, many years ago."

66. Robert Stevens' Styles, [•'521 OViiUmn II.: Hevnj,- 

James,- Frmicis,^) born Jiuie 2, 1825. Mr. Styles thus succinctly 
sketches his own life history: 

"In the month of September, 1837, I entered the office of 
the Ulster Sentinel, a newspaper edited and owned by William 
Culley, as the youngest 'Entered Apprentice,' and continued so, 
with some slight deviations, until the political campaign of 1840; 
when, the Sentinel being a conservative sheet, it was, for finan- 
cial and political reasons, merged into the Kingston. Jonrnnl, 
Whig, which dispansed with my s^rvicas. t than entered the 
office of the Pour/hJceepsie Journal, owned and edited by Jackson 
& Schram, where I was employed some two years, when an alli- 
ance was made with the Ponr/hkeep-^ie Eugle, which again vacated 
my 'frame.' Eeturned to Kingston, N. Y., and entered the em- 
ploy of Rodney Chipp, on the Wlster Repnhlican, and continued 
thus until the Spring of 1844, when I found myself in Freehold, 
N. J., working on the Laws of that State, and a paper published 
by one Bernard ConoUy. About August 1st of that year, I re- 
signed, and on the 12th, with my brother Henry, sailed from Sag 
Harbor, L. I., on board the ship Thomas Dickason, Capt. William 
Lowen, bound on a three years' whaling voyage. In due time 
the Cape of Good Hope was doubled, and the Indian Ocean tra- 
versed, running not far from New Holland (now Australia), and 
thus on until the southeiu point of New Zealand was sighted, to 
correct chronometers, when the ship headed for the Sandwich 
Islands— stoj)ping at Pitcairn Island en route. Town of La- 
haina. Island of Maoi, was our port of rendezvous for supplins. 
Passed two summers in the Okotcli sea (winters in this latitude) 
in the South Pacific. On the 10th day of January, 1847, doubled 
Cape Horn, homeward V)ound. April 12th, anchored in Gard- 
ner's Bay, just 32 months from home, bringing 4,000 b.irrels of 
oil and 48,000 lbs. whalebone— full ship. The m(mth of May 
found me again in the office of the Ulster Repnbliean, and so con-

The Bermuda Stiles Family. 


This sketcli of the Soufheni Sfiks families, is largely in- 
debted for its interest to Mr. Albert W. Stiles, of Wasbin^'ton, 
D. C, and for supplementary and confirmatory data to J. G. 
Bullock, M. D., of Savannah, Ga. 

The Memoviah of Bermuda, compiled Ly Lieut. Gen. Sir J. 
H. Lefroy, C. 15., &c., pul»lished in London, 1879, contains a copy 
of Kichard Nor^vood's* Book of Survey, made in 1662, with 
original survey (made by order of the Bermuda Company), from 
which it appears that, 

John Stiles, (probably born about 1600) was, in 1635, a 
first settler in Bermuda, and owned Share Xo. 13, in Southamp- 
ton Tribe, or locality; being one of the twelve original Shares 

* R. Norwood, Sur\-eyor. whose Book of Survey is above referred to, went to Bermuda in 
t6is, and, in 1642, was 71 years of aare. See Rev. E. D. Neill's English Colonization of Atner- 
ca, 179); so >t seems probable that John Stiles may have .?one thither at that time, also. 
Moore's ///i/ Tracts. Vol. 3, contains a list of the Adventurers of the Virginia Company of 
Loudon, which, atone time, was concerned with the Bermudas, or Summers Island settle- 
ment. \s connected with the Virginia Company are mentioned Sir Nath'l Rich, the Karls of 
Warwick and Southampton, Thomas Gibbs, Uobert Hunt, and Rev, P. Copeland, who were 
also counected with the Bermuda Company— (See Hist, of the Virginia Co. of London, by E. 
D. NeilU. In this same work (page :,co in the Proceedings of the Va. Co., Sept. 1622, the Karl 
of South.nnipton being Director, it is mentioned that " Calvert has a message from the King," 
recommending for appointment as Deputy, among others, "Mr, Stiles." If this was John 
Stiles of Bermuda, it would look as though like Copeland and others he first went to Virginia, 
before settling in Bermuda. The first settlers to the Bermudas were conveyed thither in 
The Plough, which sailed from Knglandin April, 1612. — A. W. S. 

The above paragraph, concerning the Royal recommendation of "Mr. Stiles" as Deputy- 
Governor of the Colouy, justifies perhaps (what I have yet seen no other evidence of) my 
friend Dr. Bullock's allusion, in .some of his MS. Notes, to '• Governor" Stiles. My other col- 
laborateur, Mr. A. W. Stiles, offers the following extract from Burke's Hist, of the Commoners 
(iv, 595) as possibly referring to this same John: "Elizabeth, daughter of John Moseley 
(and his wife Lettice Clark, of Farnham! of Owsden, married yo/i'2 Stiles, of Hempstone, in 
Suflfolk"— (between 1610-1630). — H. K. S. 


granted to Sir Nathaniel Rich.* The adjoiuiug h^t, No. 14, was 
owned by Mrs. Elizabeth Durham; and the next, No. 15, by 
Henry Durham,* whose estate adjoined Kichard Hunt's.* These 
lands were near to the Port Royal Church, the records of wldch 
are among the best preserved in the early Colonial Church 

Among the MSS. of Ezra Stiles, S. T. D., L.L. D., President 

• Extract from a paper written by Copeland Stiles, of Bermuda dated Oct. 21st, 1789: 
'■•The pedigree of the Hon. John Harvey, President of His .Majesty's Counsel at Bermuda 
—from the noble house of Rich in England, and lineally descended iu the direct female line,' 
viz: " Sir Nathaniel Rich had a sister named Jane, who married Thomas Grin.sdith of Hasel- 
mere. in Surrey. England." 

" Thomas and Jane Grinsdith, the aforesaid sister of Sir Nathaniel Rich, had a daughter 
named 'Frances,' who married Mr. Richard Hunt, merchant in London, [who came to Ber- 
muda about 1635 and located on one of the shares of land, before mentioned, near Port Royal 
Church, which had been granted to Sir Nathaniel Rich and bequeathed to them by his will. - 
A. W. S.] 

"The said Richard Hunt and Frances his wife had a son Richard and two daughters; Jud- 
ith married Henry Durham, and Sarah married Thomas Gibbs. The said Thomas and Sarah 
Gibbs had a son and two daughters. The eldest daughter, named Sarah, was married to 
Philip Lea: the second, named Deborah, was married to Daniel Stiles." 

[Then follows mention of the marriage of Mary, daughter of Philip I.ea, to Hon. John 
Harvey, etc.— A. W. S. 

Copeland Stiles continues:] 

"The House of Rich was verv potent in Charles the First and Second's times and James 
the First. The Earls of Manchester, Warwick, Earl of Sandwith, and Lord Holland of those 
periods were all of the name and family of Sir Nathaniel Rich. I was personally acquainted 
with Field Marshal Sir Robert Rich, Bart., and in the year 1750 dined with him at his house 
in Grosvenor Square, London where his eldest son. General Rich, was also present. He in- 
herited his father's title, and vast estates, and died about two years ago." (1777^ etc.. etc. 

" He (.Gen. Rich was aid-de-camp to the Duke of Cumberland at the battle of Culloden, iu 
1745, and lost one of his hands * * * if I remember rightly. Sir Robert Rich told me in 
1750 that Sir Nath'l Rich was his uncle. 

" N. B.— John Harvey. Esq.. is tlie great-great-grandson of Frances Hunt, own niece to Sir 
Nath'l Rich, and the said Frances Hunt was the great-great-grandmother of Copeland Stiles; 
descending from Judith, her daughter, married to Henry Durham, Esq. 
Bermuda. Oct. 21st, 1789. Copeland Stiles." 

[It is possible that Mr. Copeland Stiles was mistaken as to relationship between Sir N. R. 
and Sir Robt R , Lord Rich of Leuze and Chancellor under Henry VIIL 

Jane Rich and her brother Sir Nathaniel Rich, were ll think) the grand-children of "Rob- 
ert; First Lord Riche of Leeze," and Chancellor under Henr>- VIIL. and Edward VL, whose 
wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Wm. Jenkes, grocer of London, by whom he had a numerous 
family. One of his sons became the Second Earl of Warwick, and another. Lord Holland, of 
Holland House.— A. W. S.] 

The father of Robert, First Lord Rich of Leeze, was a grocer in London. His mother was 
a Dingley. (D. 1556).

in 1828 by William Bulmer. 

History describes Rich as a very successful, but most unprincipled man. 


of Yale ColIefi;e, and still preserved in the Library of that College, 
are several relative to the Bermuda Stiles Family. Among these 
is inserted a letter from Copeland Stiles, of Bermuda, dated 
Newport, June 3, 1768, making an appointment to call upon Kev. 
Dr. Stiles, with reference to furnishing him some information con- 
cerning the Bermuda Family of Stiles. From accompanying 
memoranda taken by the Rev. Dr. Stiles at this interview, to- 
gether with another paper written by the same Copeland Stiles 
of Bermuda, in 1789 (Oct. 'Jl) on the subject of the Stiles and 
Harvey pedigree (the original of which is in the possession of 
Hon. Eugeuius Harvey, of Paget, Bermuda — see Note, page 662), 
and from additional memoranda from the Outerbridge Family 
Records, and from Edward Stiles' correspondence, we are enabled 
to construct this following genealogical sketch: 

1- John^ Stiles, before referred to, had several children, 
of whom was one Daniel. 


2. Daniel' Stiles, (JoJut,^ the Emigrant) married Deb- 
orah (daugliter of Thomas and Sarah Durliani) Gibbs — a grand- 
daughter of Frances Grinsdith, who married Richard Hunt, of 
London, and came to Bermuda in 1635. Frances Griusdith's 
mother was Jane (sister of Sir Nathaniel and of Sir Robert) 
Rich — see Baronetage of England. 


3. I. Daniel,' married Mary Durham. Family 3. 

4. II. Joseph.^ 

5. III. John.' 

6. IV. Edward,' who possibly was the Edward Stiles re- 

ferred to in the following extract from the Gen- 
tleman^s Magazine, 1760, p. 32; "Account of 
Naval Engagement * * * upon oath of 


two of the Mariners on board: Kingston in 
Jamaica, Sept. 22. S. S. Hanover. 

"The deposition of John McCcn-mick and 
Paul Preston, Mariners, who being duly sworn 
on the Holy Evangelists, tliis 6th day, Sept. 
1759, before me, made oath that on Sunday, the 
5th day of August last, the scow Desire, Edward 
Stiles, master, from and belonging to Philadel- 
phia, and bound to Lucca, in Jamaica, was 
attacked by a French privateer, and captured; 
and the master, mates and several others killed 
after they had surrendered," etc.

ter of Richard and Frances Hunt; her mother Judith Hunt, hav- 
ing married Henry Durham — See Xote, page 662. 


11. I. Daniel;^ resided in New York City, 1768; probably 

the same as he who is named in Old Merchants 
of New York, as a merchant in 1751; and an ad- 
mitted freeman of that city.

married a dauohter of Rev. Company Carden 
and died without issue. "A life-size, three- 
quarter portrait of him, iu Court dress, aud said 
to have been painted by Sir Joshua Reynolds, 
is in existence; and I have heard that the Har- 
vey family, of Bermuda, have one of his mother,

* There was a Ricliard Stilf'S, merchant, in Rast and West India goods, located on Front 
Street, Philadelpliia— who was contemporaneous with Edward (Farm 5) 1770-5 and whether 
he left any descendants is not known— but he is not supposed to have been related to Kdward. 


28. Edward' Stiles, |i:^l [Dunkl;' Dauidr Joint:) bom 

at Port Royal, in Bernmaa, about 1715 or "20; settled in Phila- 
delphia, Pa., where, in 17G0, he })incliased an estate of 195 
acres, near the mouth of Frankfort (or Tacony) Creek, (now in 
the XXIII. Ward of the city), which he named " Port Royal." 
The mansion house, which he erected, is still standing, and is 
on State street, between Church and Duncan streets. He had 
a city residence in Walnut, between Tliird and Fourth streets 
(old No. 70, present Nos. 308 and 310), and he also owned an- 
other country seat of about 100 acres, called Green Hill, which 
is now in the centre of the city. The mansion has since been 
pulled down and was replaced, in 1810, by his grandson Benja- 
min Stiles, with the present handsome residence on the corner 
of Broad and Poplar street. He was a shipping merchant, his 
store and wharf being on Front St. between Market and Arch 
streets. It is said that Stephen Girard, the millionaire, was at 
one time in Mr. Stiles' employ. Edward Stiles was a man of 
wealth. President Stiles {Geneal JISS.) speaks of him as having 
an income of " £4000 a year. Estate £70,000." 

During the Revolutionary war, Mr. Edward Stiles was au- 
thorized to export a ship-load of provisions to Bermuda, for the 
relief of its people." He was a meml/er of Christ (Prot. Epis.) 
Church, of Philadelphia, and— with his two wives and only child 
James— is buried in its burial place. He died in Philadelphia, 
Feb. 22, 1804, aged near 90, and his only child ( James i having 
died before him, in 1795, his estate passed to his three grand- 
children. John and Elliston Ferret, from Bermuda, were his 
executors and Samuel Coats was guardian of the minor heirs. 
In his last will and testament, datedSept. 10, 1793 and proved 
Feb. 27, 1804, he directs that his slaves shall be freed and edu- 
cated at his expense; and leaves bequests to his brothers and 
sisters and to the Port Roval (Bermuda) Church.

who died eight years later, having had 3 children, all of whom

Thomas and Mary) Beatly, formerly of Pennsylvania. 


He was educated in Carlisle, Pa., aud afterwards at Mouut 
St. Mary's Collej^e, near Emmetsburg, Md., durin*,' the succes- 
sive presidencies of Rev. Drs. Ea-j;an, McGeary aud the Rt. Rev. 
John B. Purcell; then at C(d. A. L. Roumfort's Military School, 
at Mt. Airy, near Gerniantowu, Pa. While there, lie was ap- 
pointe'd to a cadetship at the U. S. Military Academy at West 
Point, N. Y., where he remained for some years until his resig- 
nation. He then studied medicine with Dr. David N. Mahon, 
at Carlisle, Pa,, attending lectures at the Medical Department 
of the University of Pennsylvania, whence he graduated. After 
a short residence in Tennessee, he sailed from Wilmington, Del., 
as surgeon on the whale-ship }\oytli America, which was wrecked 
on the coast of Australia, from whence he sailed in the barque 
Raymond, of Hull, Eug., to China; and there engaged in the 
opium trade. Returning to the U. S. — after visiting his relatives 
for oulv four or live days, he embarked for Buenos Ay res, and 
enlisted in its army; but shortly left it for the Montevidean Navy, 
but remained only a sliin-t time, in consequence (as in the Bra- 
zilian army) of not being able to secure his stipulated salary. 
He returned home in the sloop-of-war Decaf nr, under Commander 
(afterwards Admiral) Farragut. After a few weeks with his rela- 
tives, he started off for the Rocky Mountains, where, for over 
a 3-ear, he traded among the Indians. Then he settled in the 
practice of his profession near the mouth of Red River, Louis- 
iana, but failing health compelled his removal, to Greenville, 
Darke Co., Ohio, where he has since resided and practiced. 

At the breaking out of the War of the Civil Rebellion, Dr. 
Stiles promptly volunteered as a private, for three months' ser- 
vice; and, at the expiration of that term, he re-enlisted for the 
war, and served with honor, until discharged by a special order 
from President Lincoln. He has always been a firm and con- 
sistent Democrat, courteous to aud respected by his politic,' 1 
opponents — and represented his County in the Representa- 
tive branch of the Ohio Legislature, in its 60th session.

John Stiles (Records in U. S. Pension Office, Washing f on, D. C): 
In December, 1830, of Hay ward Co., N. C; states that he 
was boru Feb. 1, 1757, aud eulisted for one year March, 1776, or 
7, in Georgia, with Capt. Green, in the regiment ot Col. Harris, 
and afterward commanded by Col. Habersham, and discharged 
at Savannah, Ga. He married in Haywood Co., N. C, Feb. 1, 
1809, widow Lucy Beasley, by Kev. Charles Stiles— Methodist. 
'He is reported to have died Oct. 17, 1834, by the widow Lucy, 
and by William Stiles, a nephew in Haywood Co. (This must 
be an error of one year, as he must have died in 1833, because 
no pension was paid after Sept. 4, 1833). In June, 1853, the 
widow was living in Jackson Co., N. C, aged 77 years; and in 
the fall of 1857, or winter of 1858, removed to Union Co., Ga. 
(probably resides in or near Blainsville), to live with her chil- 
dren and relatives, and died June 29, 1861. Children surviving, 
were Agnes, whose age is stated in 1857 as 60 years, who no 
doubt married Wm. Patin; Sarah Quillan and Wni. Beasley — 
the first named, perhaps, too old to have been a daughter of 
John Stiles, and whether the others were, is unknown. But the 
probabilities favor that they were hei- children by her first mar- 
riage — no mention of any children that were John Stiles' born 
after his marriage with Lucy Beasley, is made. 

The Georgia Brandi.tBermuda Stiles Family, 


1- Capt. Samuel' Stiles. T^he Hhlorical Collections of 
Georgia, by Eev. George White, 1854, pa<^'e 276, Bryan Co., states 
that Capt. Samuel Stiles, with his brother Benjamiu Stiles" 
[brothers of Edward Stiles of the Bermuda Family] came to this 
country, about 1764, and settled a plantation in what is now 
called Bryan County. Wlien the Revolutionary War commenced, 
although his family were in Bermuda, Mr. Samuel Stiles took 
part with the Americans. His services to the United States 
were very valuable. 

He was engaged a large portion of his time in procuring 
warlike stores and ammunition for the United States, as well as 
for the State (^f Georgia. Much of the powder (some of that 
used at Bunker Hill, it is said) employed by the Americans, 
came from Bermuda. Mr. Stiles was present at the siege of 
Savannah, where he had a horse shot under him. The Count 
D'Estaiog made Mr. Stiles liberal propositions to assist him in 
taking some of the West India islands; but unavoidable circum- 
stances prevented his acceptance of the otler. 

Capt. Stiles was a man of remarkal)le physical strength, and 
of a genial, manly nature. It is related of him, that, on one oc- 
casion, after a dinner party, convivial as they were in those days 
among gentlemen, he ran a race in a wager, carrying the then 
Governor of the State (Taliaferro) on his shouhlers. The Gov- 
ernor was a small man, and Ca])t. Stiles, finding that his compet-

itor (who was not carrviug weight auil was a luueli youiif^er man) 
was likely to outrun him, put his liaud under the Governor's 
thighs anil tossed him headhing over the goal, bruising him 
slightly as he rolled on the grass. But it was decided, amid 
shouts of laughter and triumph, that as the Governor, part of 
the racer, had passed the goal ahead of the competing racer. 
Captain Stiles had won the race! 

He married Frances Lightburne, sister of Nathaniel Light- 
burne, who was in business in New York City, in 1810, with a 
partner by the name of Yose.

35. Rev. Joseph Clay^^ Stiles, D.D., L.L.D., [7] 

(Joseph^- Copt. Saiunel^) born in Savannah, Ga., Dec. 6, 1795; 
passed his childhood and youth in his native city and on Green 
Island, on the Atlantic coast, the summer home and burial 
place of the Stiles family. He graduated at Yale College, 
in 1814, under the presidency of Rev. Timothy Dwight, 
D.D. The application of his widow, Caroline C. Stiles, 
in 1878, being then of Richmond, Va., shows that he 
enlisted for the War of 1812, at Savannah, in the Chatham Ar- 
tillery, Captain Mackay, in 1814, an<l was discharged at Savan- 
nah in 1815. After this episode, he studied law at Litchfield, 
Conn., in the then famous law school of Judge Gould, and, sub- 
sequently, in Savannah under Senator Berrien, one of the most 


tlioroufrlily disciplined legal iniiids of America. He practiced 
law a few rears in his uative city, with gieat promise, and in 
partnership with the hito distinguished W. \s. Gordon, Es([. 

A great domestic atHictiou, in 18'22, was overruled to his 
conversion. He possessed an extraordinary emotional nature; 
his joys and griefs were intense, and the loss of the beloved 
companion of his youth overwhelmed him with inconsolable 
grief. In his lonely walks, an old Christian (slave) servant said 
to him, " Marster Joe, you is wrong; you can't help yourself; 
look to the Lord." This gentle admonition of a humble African, 
guided l)y the Holy Spirit, pierced the sad, proud heart and 
pointed to an unknown source of consolation. Christ was 
sought and found. Emerging from darkness and bondage into 
marvellous peace and liberty, tliere immediately arose in his 
heart an irrei^ressible desire to proclaim his newly-f(Tund 
Saviour to lost souls. Therefore, in returning from Court at 
Darien, Mcintosh Co., Ga., he paused midway from home, on a 
plantation belonging to his father, in Bryan County. Here he 
commenced preaching to the negroes, and such was his anxiety 
to tell tliem of Christ tliat he undertook the preparation of their 
food, while they were at their daily lal>or, that they might have 
more time for hearing the truth. He also visited other plauta- 
ti<^ns, a dangerous liberty in that day. During this sojourn in 
Bryan County the slaves tlocked an.iund liim with- idolatrous 
love, and wonderful revivals followed his labors. His father, 
greatly disappointed by his son's sudden }>ause in his brilliant 
legal career, wrote him thus : " Joe, if you are determined to 
abandon the law for the ministry, come home and get ready, 
and leave for some theological school, and prepare for the work." 
His improvised flock })rotested against his departure, and de- 
claie<l him eminently (|ualitied to preach! But he said to them: 
'• "When your axe is dull, do you not grind it? I must go and 
grind my axe, that I may do better work for the Master." He 
accoi'dingly entered And(»ver Theological Seminary, and re- 
mained tiiere about two years, when, in consecjuence of impaired 


eyesiglit, he returued to Geoi^^iu. Here he was liceused to 
preach by the Hopewell (uow Augusta) PresV.ytery, at Lexiug- 
ton, Ga., Ajnil 3, 182o, and was onlaiucd au evaugelist by the 
same body, in August, 1826, at Milledgeville. For three years 
he hibored as au evaugelist, with remarkable power aud suc- 
cess, giving a uew impulse to TresbyteriaLiism iu Georgia, re- 
viving old churches aud orgauiziug uew ones — among the latter, 
those at Milledgeville aud ^Nlacon. 

In 1829 he removed to Mcintosh Co., Georgia, where, 
until 1835, he performed much eftective labor at his own 
charges in the low country of Georgia and in Florida — having 
also, for a few mouths, the charge of the First Presbyteriau 
Church of Savauuah. The character of this labor and of the 
people among whom it was performed, as well as the character 
of the man himself, is well illustrated by the following adventure, 
related bv Dr. Stiles himself. He was travelling to fultill au en- 
gagement on Sunday morning, aud reached the bauhs of a swollen 
stream, where there was neither ferry nor bridge. With charac- 
teristic courage, however, after scanning the situation, he 
plunged iu. When about the middle of the river, his horse lost 
foothold, and the sulky was swept away by the current. Leap- 
ing into the flood, he cut the horse loose and swam with it to 
the opposite shore, where, shivering and wet to the skin, he 
mounted without saddle and made for the nearest house, which 
was only a mile or so distaut. There he stated his mishap aud 
asked for the loan of a vehicle to continue his journey. But the 
farmer eved hiju suspiciously, and examining the horse, declared 
that it filled the descripti(ni precisely of one which had recently 
been stolen from a neighbor. Moreover, he declared the traveler 
his prisoner, aud swore that he should go no farther. Mr. 
■Stiles afi^irmed, in vain, that he was no thief, but an humble 
minister of Christ. Tfie man was immovable, but at length 
consented to guard the minister to the meeting-house and ascer- 
tain the truth of his story. Arrived at the place, ev(ny one 
crowded around Mr. Stiles t<^ learn the cause of his detention 


and pitiable plight. His capt(^r was abashed beyoud measure 
and tried to escape unobserved. But tlie man of (rod stopped 
hira, saying, " Now, my friend, I denumd that you shall hear me 
preach, as compens;itiou for my treatment." He was ol)liged to 
yield, and, that very day, under the moving appeals of the 
pseudo horse thief, the honest man was powerfully impressed 
and ultimately converted. 

Mr. Stiles was received by the Presbytery of Georgia 
(now Savannah) from Hopewell Presbytery, Jan. 4, 1833, and 
dismissed to West Lexington, Ky., on Nov. 3, 1835, when he re- 
moved to central Kentucky. During his resideuca 4iL about 
nine years in the West, he preached a short time in Cincinnati, 
Ohio; at Versailles, Harmony and Midway, Ky. In 184-4 he 
accepted a call from the Shockoe Hill mow Grace street) Pres- 
byterian Church, of Kichmond, Ya., where he labored for four 
years with earnest devotion and marked success. In 1848 he 
was called to the pastorate of the Mercer Street Church, New 
York City; but, after dee[)ly enshrining himself in the hearts of 
his people and of the community generally, he was, after two 
years, compelled to resign on account of ill health. He then 
assumed tiie general agency of the American Bible Society, and, 
during 18o0 and '51, traveled chietly in the South, receiving the 
hearty welcome of all denominations and unsurpassed contribu- 
tions to the Society's funds. In 1853 he was called to the 
charge of the South Church, New Haven, Conn., and while there, 
as well as afterw.-ud, he laViored most etliciently in the organiza- 
tion of the Southern Aid Society, for the assistance of feeble 
Southern churches. 

In 1859 he was invited by the Synod of Georgia to become 
their tirst evangelist, with the Rev. Wm. M. Cunningham, D. D., 
and in 1860 the twf) performed a nol)le work for the churches 
and people of that State. , 

Upon the outbreak of the Civil War, in 1861, Dr. Stiles, 
although his family was settled at New Haven, Conn., and des- 
pite many inducements to remain, returned to the South and 


gave himself wholly, ho.-ut .-lud soul, to the reli^nons welfare, 
aid and comfort of the Southeru soldiers. Although appro.ich- 
ing three score aud teu, he labored among them during most of 
the war. The first battle witnessed by him, and in which he 
suffered much personal exposure iu assisting the surgeons, Avas 
that of Leesburg, iu October, 18G1. His labors were chietlv in 
the command of Stonewall Jackson, with whom he was inti- 
mately associated and whom he greatly admired. No fatigue, 
liardship or immediate peril disheartened him, and his lal)ors 
were greatly blessed. A friend says of him at this time: " I 
well remend^er him as he went from camp to camp of our Con- 
federate soldiery, the picture of a genuine, serious, God-fearing 
man, for whom the only true path was laid down in clear, vivid 
light, which he, without question, without waver, followed, and 
strove to make others follow." It is said of him tliat, after one 
of the most interesting aud solemn of his sermons to the sol- 
diers, General Jackson found him sitting at lunch l)y the road- 
side. Dismounting, he sat down by him, exclaiming, " Oh ! 
Doctor, I had rather be a preacher than ten thousand generals." 
After the war. Dr. Stiles labored as an evangelist in Yir- 
ginia, Alabama, Florida, Missouri and Maryland, ceasing only 
when physically disabled. His last sermon was preached at 
Union, Monroe C(X, West Ya., June 28, 187-4. He died at 
Savannah, Ga., March 27. 1875, in his 80th year, after months 
of great prostration and illness. During these last months of 
his life, in his old home, many of the negroes who had known 
him iu former years vied with friends and relatives iu acts of 
kindness and attention. A few days behn-e his death one of 
them, who had ftnmerly lived Avith some branch of the family, 
Avas sent for to assist in caring for him during the night. He 
remained some hours, when Dr. Stiles called for hitn aud said, 
"You had better go home, now ; you have work to do to-morrow, 
and you need some rest." The man hesitated for a moment and 
then said, " Mass" -Joe, I just want to ask you one question, sah, 
before I go." " AYell, Jim, Avhat is it?" " Is de Lord jn-esent 


wid you, sail ?" " Oh, yes — all the time." " Thauk you, sah ; 
I I'linired, but I wanted to hear you say so once more, sah." 
When all was over, six of these meu came and requested to he 
allowed to remove the body, aud attend the hearse to the station, 
whence it was to be removed to its last resting-place at lUch- 
mond. They wanted none but loving hands to bear the sacred 

Physically, morally and intellectually. Dr. Stiles was a man 
of heroic proportions. In person, he was six feet in height, 
perfectly erect, with broad shoulders and deep chest. His 
features were of classic mould ; a lofty, expansive forehead, 
mouth and eyes peculiarly expressive, wonderfully capable of 
telling the emotions of joy or sorrow, complacency or indigna- 
tion, the serenity or the electric lire of the soul. A voice of 
great compass, pouring forth in silvery notes or thunder-tones, 
according to the ruling emotion. His every movement and gesture 
presented the unstudied grace of nature — often arising into 
majesty. In his moral nature. Dr. Stiles combined decided 
courage, moral and physical, with almost too much of generos- 
ity, even to the point of self-al)negation. Cheerful, hopeful, 
tender, affectionate and faithful, he was ever studiously watchful 
against sins of maliciousness and malice-bearing. His, indeed, 
was a V)road and n(^ble nature, drawing its spring of life and 
action from an immediate access iby faith and prayer) to God. 

He was equally remarkable in his mental organization — a 
rare combination of a])parent |)aradoxes ; independence with in- 
dustry, impetuosity with patience, analysis and synthesis, sim- 
plicitv with grandeur, compact logic with rhetorical grace, con- 
secutive reasoning with a gorgeous imagination. He was an in- 
dependent thinker — not a man of books, but a Aomo iDihis lihri. 
a man of One Dook. mighty in the Scrij)tures. Not a learned 
man, but wonderfullv scholarlv and polished in style and lan- 
guage; not a consecutive, but a)i intense student in following out 
a subject — giving his final results in a clear, full, exhaustive, yet 
simple and synthetical form. His detinitions were transparent, 


his positions irupregnablo, his rhetoric unJ elocution rich and 
fascinating, his imagination gh,wing, uiul, at ti.ues, terrific All 
these shone forth in his sern.ons, which were delivered us his 
friend Gen. Stonewall Jackson delivere<[ his Imttles. After 
enunciating his propositions, he advanced to their demonstration 
with amazing power and grace. His grand periods foll.,we<l 
each other like the serried ranks of an armv moving to battle 
with thrilling music and rapid, thundering tread. And as he 
rose and kindled with his sal>ject, his irresistil)le logic and glow- 
ing figures, his ready utterance and earnest appeals culminated 
in an application absolutely overpowering. It was a cvclone of 
eh>quence, whose overwhelming breath was terrifvin- or en- 
trancing, according to the subject presented. His mini^trv was 
pre-eminently that of the evangelist. Judicious and skilful 
<liscriminating, tender and faithful in dealing with newly awak- 
ened souls, he was, above all, remarkable for his earnest piety 
his total self-abnegation and unreserved consecration to Christ' 
His greatest etforts (unwritten) have perished with him 
but he has left so^e monuments of his masterlv intellect and 
vigor<nis pen. His first published efi'ort was a great sermon 
prepared and printed during his term of service as the evangel- 
ist of the Hopewell Presl)ytery, on " Predestination." Between 
I80O and 1S()0 he published a work on " Modern Reform "* in 
which he discussed the follies of the dav and abolitionism 'sub- 
sequently a few tracts, one on the " Abrahamic Covenant," an- 
other on " Universalism ;" a " Memorial ,.f Capt. Thomas Km<r 
kdled at the Battle of Chickamauga," Sept., 18G3 ; " Th'e 
Enquirer instructed and examined ;" and an Appeal to the Confed- 
erate States entitled "National Rectitude the oulv true busis of

Coluinhia CoUe«j;e Law School (New York Cit}-), reinarkiuff 
that it was tlie ablest statement that had been made against 
the position taken by the Eepublican party. One of his unpub- 
lished efforts was a speech before the General Assembly of the 
New Sch(X)l Presbyterian Church, held at Detroit, 1850, and 
spoken of at the time as " a most magnificent and overwhelm- 
ing effort of the intellect/'^ During the last two years of his 
life he spent much time in preparing a book on "The Nature 
and Duration of Future Punishment, "+ especially in answer to 
the views of Mr. Constable. While engaged upon this work, a 
friend exporstulated with him upon the danger of suc-h exhaust- 
ing lal)or at his advanced age. He i-eplied, with tender earnest- 
ness, " This is my alabaster box," and to the end he looked ujxrn 
it as his most precious offering to the Church — excepting it 
from the request, which he made during his last illness, that all 
notes of sermons and all remaining copies of his printed works 
should be destroyed. 

Mr. Stiles received the degree of D.D. from Transylvania 
University, in 1840, and that of LL.D. from the University of 
Georgia, in 18G0. 

He was twice niairied; (1) Aug. 14, 1820, to Caroline, t

48. Hon. and Col. William Henry' Stiles, [13| 

[Joseph^- Capt. Samuel^), born in Savannah, Ga., 1809; spent his 
early life in that city; studied at Yale College, but left 
before graduation ; married in 1832; studied law, and, from 
1833 to 1836, was Solicitor-General of the Eastern District 
of the State of Georgia; practiced his profession in Savannah 
until 1840, when he was sent by the Government to pay off the 
Cherokee Indians in the upper part of the State, who had con- 
sented to emigrate to the West. Being much pleased with the 
soil and climate, he at once bought lands and settled on the 
banks of the Etowah River, which have since been the home of 
his family. Twice (1843-45) he represented his State in the U. S. 
Congress; and, several times, from Cass (now Barton) County, 
in the Georgia State Legislature. Under the administration of 
President Buchanan he represented the United States at the 
Court of Austria, and resided at Vienna for four years. On his 
return, in 1852, he published a valu;ible and standard work en- 
titled, Austria in ]s49, beitKj a History of the Late Political Move- 
ments in Vienna, Jlilan, Venice and Prague, 2 vols., 8vo., from 
the press of the Harper Brothers, New York City. 

At the commencement of the Civil War, he raised a Con- 
federate regiment (the GOtli Georgia), of which he became Colonel 
and was through the War in service in Hayes' Brigade, Early's 
Division, Swell's 2d Corps, Army of Northern Virginia; but his 
health failing, he came home to Savannah in 1863, and died there 
Dec. 21, 1864. 



In person, Col. Stiles was tall, spare, six feet liifjli, of deli- 
cate form, blue eyes and femiuine features, redeemed, liowever, 
by a lofty brow aud tiuely moulded mouth aud cliiu. His man- 
uer revealed the cultivated gentleman, aud, as an orator, he had 
few equals in Georgia. He never spoke without elaborate prep- 
aration, but so gusliiug and warm was his delivery that it was 
difficult to believe that his efforts were not the outburst of the 
moment. His voice rose upon the ear like the blast of a trumpet, 
and all the graces of oratorj- accompanied and gave uncommon 
force a^id emphasis to his well-rounded and often beautiful 
periods. As Speaker of the Georgia Legislature, his perfect 
impartiality aud courteous demeanor lightened the severe 
duties of legislation and proved most aeceptal)le to its members. 

CoL William H. Stiles married, 1832, Eliza (daughter 
of Robert and Eliza) Mackay, of Savannah, Ga. — of a Scotch 
family who emigrated to America in the latter ])art of the last 
century. She was also a descendant of Capt. Juo. McQueen, 
who once served as a special envoy from "VVashitigton to the 
Marquis Lafayette, during the Revolutionary War. She died at 
Etowah, Dec. 21, ISOG. 

Colonel Stiles' residence was at " Etowah Clitfs," as he 
named the lands he purchased aud settled upon in 1840.

APPENDIX I. (Page 6). 

History and Antiquities of the English Family of 
Stylles, Stylle and Stiles. 


[This matter was furuislied, by me, to The GeneaIo<j)/ of the 
Massachusctfs i^tiles Faniihj, publislied iu 1892, bv Mrs. M. S. P. 
Guild, of Lyun, Mass., and with it, a considerable number of 
interesting items relative to the name iu England, for which 
the reader is referred to that work. 1 

Although the name of Stile, Style or Stiles appears among 
the gentry in several of the eastern and south-eastern counties 
of England, from a very early period, yet the principal of these 
families, and the only one of which we have any extended and 
connected account, seems to have been seated iu the county of 
Suffolk, as early at least, as the middle of the loth century. 
Many records of its genealogy have been preserved in the Her- 
ald's College at Loudon, which have been examined and attested 
by the different heralds, at various times, down to the year 16J:0. 

From tliesH records, and from other incontestible evidence, 
we have constructed the following: 

Burke, and those British genealogists and heralds who have 
followed him, have derived this family from 

1- William Style, Esq., of Ij)swich, Co. Suffolk, who 

had a son Joiix, an Alderman of Loudon, in tlie time of Henry 
VIL, etc. (Family 1 in the following Genealogy), and who (they 
sav) died in loOO, and, according to Hasted (Hisf. Co. Kenf, [., 
542), is buried in AUhallows Church, Barking, Loudon. 


This view, however, cuunot be harmonized, in our judf^jment, 
with certain facts which were not, perhaps, accessible to those 
earlier authorities. 

In the first phice, we find, in the Topographer and Genealo- 
gist, edited by J. Gouj^h Nicliols, the late eminent genealogist 
and antiquarian (vol. 2, p. 302, 18o3), a summary catalogue of 
"Sepulchral Memorials and Remains of Ancient Art existing in 
the Parish Churches of Co. Sufiolk." No. 4, of this catalogue, 
is the inscription on a memorial brass, existing in the Church of 
St. Nicholas, in the ancient town of Ipswich, as follows; 

In black letter — "Hic Jacet Willi'us Style ac Isabella 


8IS, JuLij, Ana'o D'ni Mill' mo cccclxxv, et dicta Isabella obijt 
xvj", die Febuari.j Anno D'n'i Mill" mo cccc nonages. C'js a' i' e 
Requiescat in Pace." Below was a representation of the three 
persons of the Trinity and two groups of children. Height of 
figures 27. \ inches." 

This, then, is the memorial of one William Style, who died 
the 11th dav of Julv, 1475, and of Isabella, his wife, who died 
the 16th day of February, 1490. 

Again, in G. R. Clarke's Hldory and Description of the Town 
and Boron (jh of Ipsn-ich, published in 1830 (p. 254), in mention- 
ing "the lofty and handsome steeple" of the Parish Church of 
St. Peters, he gives the following item, from a "Copy of a Man- 
uscript in the library of Samuel Dowsing, of Stratford, written 
by his father AYilliam Dowsing, and was afterward sold to Mr. 
Huse, a bookseller in Exeter Change, London, Sept. 6. 1704." 

"A legacy left by the will of Willl\m Stile, dated 28th 
April, 1463. Item, to tlie making of the Steeple of the Parish 
Church of St. Peter, Ipswich, 6s.'8d." 

He adds that this seems to have been the earliest of sev- 
eral bequests, made by different individuals, for the same pur- 

Now, this William wlio "headed the subscription," so to 
speak, for the building of the steeple of St. Peter's, mai/ have 
been the William who was buried in the Church of St. Nicholas 
in 1475; but as this gift was an item in hi.s n-ill dated 1463, and 
as people, in all generations, do not generally show any great 
alacrity in making their wills much before their time comes so 
to do; we prefer to believe that the two Williams were not one 
and the same individual. 


Theu, to add to tho coin plication, iu the same Church of 
St. Nicholas iu Ipswich, in which William aud his wife Isabella 
are buried, is auother - brass" (No. 3, iu the Catalo<,Mie before 
referred to) represeutiiii; "A man iu a jtjowu; his wife, children, 
arms, etc., goue; heij^dit M iuches (probably for William Stiles 
and Margery, his wife — Anno loOO)." 

Admitting that tlu> aiitiquariau who examiued aud cata- 
logued these Memorials in the Church of St. Nicholas, liad some 
good and sufficient reason for assigning this brass to "William 
Stiles and Margery his wife — Anno 1500," we thus have in 

William Stile, will dated 14G3. 

William Stile, whoso wife was Isabella, and his monument 

dated 1475. 
William Stile, whose wife was Margery, and to whom is 

assigned the dat«> of 1500. 
It is quite possibh* that the frfit Wilijam, was the father 
of the second Willl\m, and he the father of the last named W^il- 


It is also equally ])ossible that either of these Williams may 
have been the father of John Style, the Alderman of London, 
etc., simply accredited by Burke and others as the son of Wil- 
liam Stile, Esq., of Ipswich.. 

But irhicli Johu:^ is the next question that arises. For Sir 
John the Alderman, the undoubted founder of this line las far 
as po-sitiyely known) was .Migaged in some important aud delicate 
negotiations for his soycreign (as we shall hereafter see) as late 
as 1500; consequently, he could scarcely be the same "Sir John

Was tliis Sir John, tlieu, " Kuiglit and Draper," who was 
interred in Allhallows Barkinijj, the son of William, and father 
of Sir John the Alderman? 

Perhaps these questions will never be answered; but they 
are interestiuij, inasmuch as their solution would allow of our 
carryinnr the line-genealogical two or three generations further 
back toward its origin. 

Remembering, then, that the earlier generations of the fam- 
ily mmi read thus: 

1." William,' of Ipswich (will), l-tC.:^, father of 

2. William,' i>f Ipswich, and Isa])ella, his wife, who had 

II William, «>f Ii)swich, and Mar^^ery. his wife, who had 

■4. Sir John,' of Loudon, who had 

5. Sir John,' Alderman of London, etc., the known ancestor of 
the Style Family of Suftolk and Kent — we commence with the latter. 


6. Sir John'' Stiles, [5] {Sir John,* William^' William;' William,^ ) 
Alderman of London, who was employed by Henry YIL, about the 
beginning of the KJth century, in several embassies to various Euro- 
pean courts. One of these missions was to the Court of Naples, to 
negotiate a marriaj^^e between Kin<^- Henry and tlie Neai>olitau Queen- 
Dowager. Of this, Lord Bacon thus speaks in his history of the 
reign of that kinij;-: 

"Therefore he sent in and)assage or messa<^e, three contident 
persons, Francis ^L-usin, James Braybrooke, and John Style, upon 
two several intiuisitions. rather than negociations; the one touching 
the pei-son and condition of tlie youn^- (^)ueeu of Xa]des; the other 
touching all particulars of estate that concerned the fortunes and in- 
tentions of Ferdinaudo." And, in a note, he adds: "The connnission- 
ers went tirst to Valeutia where the two (Queens were, and then to 
Segovia, where they arrived on the lith Jidy, 15U5." 

An entry in a book of accompts of Henry VII. (now in the Brit- 
ish :\Iuseum" [Addilional MSS., 21, 4S0]). o-ives the date of their de- 
parture, and is cunous as showing the terms upon which such ser- 
vices were recompensed. Amonj^- the payments oi the 1st and 2d of 
May, in the 2(Hh year of Henry "s rei.^n. occurs the following: 

" [tein to James Braybrooke, goin^^ upon the Kind's message for 
four months, at o.v. the day 28/. 

" Item to Fraunces ^larzen for his costs at 1>-. the day in like- 
wise -^/• 

" Item for JoUn Style his costs at 4:.<. the day 22/. Ss." 

Hasted (Ili^loniof Kent, i., 512) says he was afterward knit^ditetl. 
"an<l was one of the Drapers' Company;"' and "that he purchased 


' Lanf^ley Park,' a seat of emiueut acccniut in tliis (Becljeuliain) parish, 
which was formerly accounted a manor, and in the rei^n of the Con- 
queror was part of the vast estate of Odo, Bishop of Baieux, and Earl 
of Kent," and is described in Doonis<lay Book. 

It passed into the hands of the Malmaines, who held it in tlie 
time of the Concpieror, but before the end of tlie reij^'^n of Edward 
III., passed by sale to Lan^ley, a "family now lonjf extinct." The 
last of that name, Bali)h, who died in the ::iUth year of Kinji^ Henry 
VL, willed it to be sold to pay his debts. It was bouj.^ht by John 
Yiolett, and passed into John Stiles' hands in the be}j;inninj4- of the 
reign of Henry VIII. 

John-^ Stiles, of Laugly, Knt., married Elizabeth, daughter and 
co-heiress of Sir Guy "Wolstan, of London, Knt., and had issue:

of-the-body to King Henry VIII., and sheriff of the county of Kent, 
in the 85th year of that monarch's reign {1544), being No. 243 of 
those who held that office in the county.f " He, with others, pro- 
cured an Act of Parliament, in the 2nd or 3rd year of King Edward

paper in the collection of Peter Le Neve, Esq., Norroy King of Arms: 
' About eleven or twelve years since, tlio late King, for and in con- 
sideration of the lonj,' and faithful service done hy Sir Humphrey 
Style, Kut., and Bart., both to his father and himself, and in recom- 
pense of his great expense therein, as also for his services in the 
Protestant AVars in France, granted unto the said Humphrey Style, 
by Letters Patent under the then Broad Seal of England, all in- 
croachments made within and upon his Palace of Westminster, re- 
serving to himself and successors a clear fourth part of all the profits 
that should accrue therel)V.' 

" Sir Humphrey Style, in pursuance of this gi'ant, and the better 
to discover how much was incroached upon the said palace, procured 
a Jury of Middlesex to be impannelled, by whom the l)ounds and 
limits of the said palace, were by their verdict, upon the testimony 
of witnesses then sworn and examined, found and discovered; and 
an exact and perfect map thereof was drawn; which is now in the 
custody of the said Humphrey Style. After the verdict of the said 
Jury, Sir Humphrey Style proceeded by Law in the Exchequer 
against some of the incroachers, where, after a long suit and much 
charge, at a full hearing he obtained the judgment of the court 
against the said incroachers; whereupon the late King granted a 
commission under his broad seal, to divers Lords, giving them power 
to compound, at reasonable rates, with such persons as had so in- 
croached, upon his said ])alace." 

"Sir Humphrey Style humbly desires your opinion, whether it 
be necessary for him to present this his case to the judgement of the 
Parliament, the fourth part reserved by the King now accruing and 
belonging to them, without whose approbation and direction he will 
not do anything." 

" AVliose opinion it was that is here asked, is not mentioned by 
Mr. Le Neve, or any further account given of this affair."* 

Sir Humphrey Style procured a grant from Sir Thomas Wrioth- 
esley, Garter, Principal King-at-Arms, which recites that "not being 
willing to bear arms in prejudice to other branches of his family, he 
had petitioned for a coat with a proper difference," which the said 
King-at-Arms granted, ^Nlarch 28, 15'29, under his hand and seal as 
follows, viz.: "Sable, a f ease ingr ailed between three tieur-de-lis, with a 
bordei', or; the /esse fretted of the field,'' to him and to his posterity."!

that saint; few of our churches being dedicated to him before that reign. In this 
church are many coats of arms carved, and painted hatchments, and pennons, 
belonging to the' family of Style of Langhy. It anciintly consisted of one aisle, 
till it was iucr< as.d bv the addition of a large chapel or aisle on each side, both 
which were built by Oliver Style of Langley, Esq. Umler the south aisle he built 
a vault for the sol.'" use of Langley-house and the family there, though he himself

ber, in his day, of the Ancient Company of Grocers, which, according 
to Stowe, was one (jf "the Twelve Honorable Companies of this 
ancient and Famous City; out of which the Lord Maior is to be 
chosen yearly, because those of inferior rancke are not capable of 
such dignity."* He was, also, the benefactor of several charities in 
London, thus stated by Stowe in his Survey of London:

4, 1805, and assisted after the battle in bringing to England one of 
the prizes (the Sdijiun, 74). In April, I8()(j, he again accompanied 
his caj^tain to tlie Vejiaiire, 74, in which ship he was tnxlered to act as 
Lieutenant, 2Gth April, 1806; and, on the loth of August f(jllowiug, 
was contirmed to that rank. On the 24th of February, I8(l9. he con- 
tributed to the destruction of 3 French frigates, under the batteries 
of Sable d'Oltnme, on which occasion the Z>fV/rn?re, besides being nuich 
cut up in her masts, sails and rigging, sustained a loss of 2 men 
killed and 25 wounded. On the 24th of June, of the same year, he 
landed at the head of between 300 and 400 seamen and marines from 
the scpiadron then cruising off Corunna and succeeded in destroying 
114 guns of the largest calibre, with their carriages and ammunition. 
With the boats of the Dejianre under his communtl he brought out

on the nij^lit of Dec-. ;51, ISOO (uutler a heavy lire of round aud grape 
shot), the armed ship Ellison, of more than 400 tons burthen, lyin<,' 
under the gnus of Fort Palais, one of the strongest fortitic-ations on 
the coast of Frauc-e. An attack had been made on this vessel a few 
nights previously, but had been repulsed. 

The 1st of June, ISIO, being again in command of the boats of 
the Defiance, after a fatiguing chase of six hours, he came up with 3 
French coasting vessels {cliay^'e-inaree^^) laden with wine and resin, 
the whole of which he boarded, carried aud brought off in a cahn, 
from under the citadel of Ft. Palais, in Belleisle, beating back G armed 
launches which came to then- aid, although exposed for an hour to 
the most severe lire- of grape and round shot from two batteries, on 
Point Taillefer, and from several tield-pieces.* 

In August, 1810, he left the Denan<e,i\ni\. in the following mtmth 
joined thellotilla employed in the defence of Cadiz. On the 2Sth of 
October, the Cn)i»perdnirn, a vessel of which he was in command, was 
wrecked on Les Corrales, a reef of rocks between Cadiz and Puntales, 
and a midshipman and 14 of the crew perished. He subsequently 
supported the present Sir Richard Fellowes at the storming of a 
four-gun batterv surrounded by a ditch and stockade at the entrance 
of Poi-t Santa :\raria, under a heavy tire from the neighboring works, 

March G, 1811. -, • • a . 

On the 5th of July, 1811, he was second in command m a night 
attack on some vessels in the Guadahpiiver, and had every man on 
the lar})oard side of his boat killed or wounded in a desperate action 
fought with a schooner of war. He was also in an attack on the 
enemy's Hotilla on Nov. id. The same year also he took the cutter 
La P/-ia/e/?rf, valuably laden, notwithstanding that before he came up, 
she had taken refuge under the battery on the Isle Oleur; for all 
these services he was very warmly recommended and received the 
thanks of the Commander-in-Chief 

He was shortly afterwards ( 1811 ) sent to co-operate m the defense 
of Tariffa, and displayed throughout such zeal and activity that he 
obtained,' as he had at Cadiz, very great ai)plause. His conduct 
gained him in particular the thanks of Commodore Penrose, also of 
the Spanish Government. 

In Ipril, 1812, he was placed on half-pay, and advanced to the rank 
of Commander, commission bearing date, Feb. 1, 1812. In May, 1821, 
he took comiuand of the Ganu't, 18, in which vessel he had the 
honor of conveying the remains of (^ueen Caroline, from Harwich to 
Cuxhaven. He became a Cai)taiu<m the Tth of Feb., 184*.).

In President Stiles' MSS. Itinerary (vol. xii, pa<^es 154-0), in 
Yale College Library, is a rude pen-sketch of the Stiles arms (similar 
to that described in Nos. II and XV of preceding- List of Coats of 
Arms), accompanied l>_v the following, under date of August 4, I'^Ho: 

" At my request, Mrs. Grant procure<l from the Heraldry OtRce, 
London, my coat of arms emblazoned i the original emblazonment is 
now in possession of some of the family of the late Dea. Charles J. 
Ingersoll, dec'd, of Greentield, Mass. — H. R. S.]. I had, indeed, the 
same in 1751. but I doubted my right to it. But informed ^Irs. G. 
that my ancestors came from Millbrook, from Bedfordshire, 1()85. 
She got a friend to trace it at the Heraldry Office to this coat of arms 
and gave assurance that I need not think myself deceived, for they 
had ascertained my title to it." 

The descri2)tion accompanying this note, in the President's MSS., 
is as follows: 

'• Stile bears 
Sable, a fesse ingrailed, fretty of the field or. and sable, between H 
fleurs-de-lis or. and a border or." 

Elsewhere, in some of the President's MSS , in }iossession of 
Mrs. Kate G. Wells, of Boston, Mass., occurs the following reference 
to the search of 1751: 

" Stile bears, ' Sable a fesse ingrailed fretty or. i^- Sable between 
three Flowers de Hz, or. and a Border or.- Crest, a Wolfe's head coup'd 
pp*" Fess or cV Sable, Coll. O, & ffreete or.' 

"The above is the coat of arms procured from the Heraldry Office. 
in London, by Mr. Elihu Lyman, in 1751. But it is uncertain 
whether it belongs to our Family. Copied from the Londim copy. 
April 10, 17GU." EzR.\ Stiles. 

These are the arms (with the exception of the fesse being en- 
grailed) borne by the English family of Sti/le, in Kent; and granted 
March 'IS, iry>\). ^ See pages 704 and 705, Note. 

If this search of 1751 (a hundred and forty-four years ago) corrol)- 
orated h\ the second search of 1785, satisfied Pres. Stiles as to the 


right of the Couueeticut family to bear these arms, perha])s it oujifht 
to be satisfac'tory to us of the present geueratiou; ])ut I confess that 
I woukl have beeu better pleased if the parties furnishing' the Pres- 
ident with the information from the Herahlry OtHce, had also fur- 
nished the <,'euealoi,ncal data connecting the Connecticut line with 
the English family bearing these arms. 

The Bermuda, Geonjla and Virginia Families. 

The right of the Bermuda Stiles Family, from which descend the 
Georgia and Virginia brandies, to these arms, seems to be fairly well 
established, both by their connection with the Wateringbury (Coun- 
ties Kent, Sussex and Essex ) family and by an emblazoned copy of 
the above-descril)ed arms, now in possession of ^Irs. Kate G. AVells, 
of Boston, Mass., differing only in the crest,* from that which is 
given beneath. On the back of this copy was accidentally discov- 
ered, a few years since, the following indorsement in the handwrit- 
ing of President Stiles: "The Arms of the Family of Stiles, with a 
motto ast-^umed by Copeland Stiles, Esc^., 17S1). Received a Present 
from C. S., Esq., of Bermuda. — Ezra Stiles." The motto alluded to 
is " Frremium Lucrum Industrie."

Henry R. Stiles, M. D., 

Dear Sir — As to tlie coat of arms of the Stiles family. Some 
years ago I became greatly interested in the matter. Through a 
friend in London ('Sir. ^Morgan, tirm of J. S. Morgan S: Co.), I had a 
thorough investigation made; and a copy of shield was obtained from 
the Herald's College; l)ut it was accompanied with such information 
that I felt thoroughly dissatisfied. Indeed, the information was such 
as to lead me to believe that the family was not of English origin at 
all, but French. I then secured the assistance of my friend, the late 
Geo. Brinley, of Hartford, Ct., who was then in Paris, and who made 
a verv exhaustive investigation with results that gave me much satis- 
faction. I cannot give you a copy of the shield, as it is stored in 
N. T., with other valuable papers, jind out of my reach at ])resent; 
but I can say that it closely I'esembles the one engraved on your cir- 
cular, except that it is (luartered with 3 lizards — couchant. The Heurs- 
de-lis are the same, the crest, the wolf's head, is also the same; but 
the shield is crossed with the bar sinister. 

* A lion's head crest, said to have come in by marriage with the Phillips 


The first one to bear the shield was Sir Geoffrey de Stile, some- 
where about 1581. The only oue of whom I cau tiud auy reliable 
trace iu Enjjrland was Sir Francis de Stile, sou of (Teoffrey, who seems 
to have emi,?rated to Eat,4aud somewhere about looO, and who settled 
in Warwickshire. But his <Tfenealo.!jry I have been unable to trace, al- 
though, in 1(584:, the records show the existence of the family, iu the 
same locality, still retaining the same shield — with the bar sinister. 
This ancient root is undoubtedly the origin of the New England 
Tamily, as well as that of Bermuda, and, without a shadow of doubt, 
that of Philadelphia, who still retain the ancient French form — Stile 
or, as some of them write it, Stille. 

I think this is all the information, on this point, of which I am 

Tours truly, 

Chas. F. Hale. 

In a subsequent letter. Dr. Hale thus writes: 

Forest Hill, Co\l Valley, W. Va., ) 
April 10th, IHSrx f 

If I was able to make the journey I should go at once to New 
York, and obtain from the Security Co. where my valuables are 
stored, the documents and drawing which Mr. Brinley procured for 
me in Paris, as well as those which Mr. ]\£orgau was able to obtain 
in London. I am not an expert in heraldic matters, and am not com- 
petent to judge iu a doubtful case like this. But one or two things 
seem indisputable. Oue is that the French and English branches of 
the Stile family liecame. iu some remote time, intermingled, as cer- 
tain sahent points in both escutcheons are identical. Again, the tieur- 
de-lis, although a common emblem, is essentially French. In my 
copy, obtained in Paris V)y Mr. Brinley, the bar sinister is a prominent 
feature, and I am fully aware of the different signitication of a bar 
sinister and a bend sinister. In one copy obtained from the family 
of Stillee in Normandie, there is a quartering which I cau neither 
trace or understand. It seems to be a grithn rampant. The Stillee 
family of Philadelphia still have this quartering, and although 
greatly chagrined at the existence of the l)ar sinister, still retain it. 

Sir Geoffrey, whose existence is well authenticated by old records, 
was probably a Frenchman by birth, but Sir Francis may have been 
born in England, aud in all probability was the oue who int(u-married 
with some English family— was it some descendant of Sir John':' 
Sir Francis wrote his luime "de Stile." I have a copy of his will 
(date forgotten) in which he beciueaths to his daughter Victoriue. 
"My great yellow duimond, and my C(q)y of our family arms, dcme in 



gold, which I eharj^e her to preserve as a precious heritage." I quote 
only from nieuiory. 

' "What more can I say? I liave no papers or memoranda to <,nnd ' 
nie, and I can onlv si)eak from memory. One thiu<,' thougli I should 
mention, the copv obtained from the Herald's Collej,^e, Loudon, was 
engrailed; that obtained from Paris as well as the Normaudie copy 
was not. The edge »)f the fesse in both French copies are straight. 
I oreatly regret that I can furnish "no useful information in this 
matter If I had l>een sooner informed of it, say before Feb. 1st, 
when I left New York. I might and pn)bably could have placed in 
your hands documents that would have been interesting to you, if 
act valuable. 

With much respect, 

I am yours truly, 

Chas. F. Hale. 



Sir Richard Saltonstall's Letter to Gov. Winthrcp, 

The patentees of Connecticut, referred to on pj:). 24-27, were 
Lords Say and Seal, Lord Brook, Sir Richard Saltonstall, and others, 
to whom, in 1031, the Plymouth Council in Eu^j^laud (chartered in 
1620, "for the plantiu<,^, and <:!^overning of New Eng^laud in 
America") had granted a patent of Connecticut, including all the 
land from the sea, 120 miles into the country, and from Narragansett 
Eiver (in Rhode Island) on the east, to the South Sea [Pacitic] on the 
west," and which patent was duly confirmed by the King. The in- 
definite nature of this grant, however, was such that it must inevita- 
bly have invited misunderstanding and contest — as it eventually did. 

The first assertion of the claims of the Connecticut Patentees, 
was the appearance, in Windsor, a few days after the coming of the 
Dorchester pioneers, of the so-called "Stiles party;" and there is no 
doubt that this Stiles party were, after the Plymouth Trading Com- 
pany, the fir. <t cirtual settlers of "Windsor. 

Before the arrival of this Patentees' pioneer party, the Dorches- 
ter men were evidently holding in reserve the actual occujiatiou of 
the Great Meadow, yet out of some Hngering respect for Plymouth's 
claims, were searching elsewhere for a suitable place for settle- 
ment. Still they could not but resent the claims of these new com- 
ers, who proposed, under authority of a pa':ent which recognized 
neither Plymouth nor Massachusetts men, nor Dutchmen, as Laving 
any right to the land in " the Three Towns," to begin forthwith a 
plantation "])etween the Plymouth Trucking House and the falls," 
(i. e., on the Great Meadow). Mr. Roger Ludlow was there, the con- 
trolling s})irit of the Dorchester party, and the Patentees' party was 
summarily told to keep "hands otf." So, Mr. Stiles stayed his hands, 
and reported the state of affairs to his superiors in England, and the 
following letter* written by Sir Richard Saltonstall, ui)ou receipt of 
his agent's statement, throws an interesting light upon the uuitter: 

"SEor m\' wortby j^^'ood ffriend il'' Johu Winthiopp. Ciouverneur of thi' Plun-

Saltonstall wfis authorized to write perHonally to Gov. Wiutliro]), 
in preference to an olHcial c-onnuuuic-ation from the Patentees, ''lest 
it nii-dit breed some jealousies in the i)eople, and so distaste them 
with our .government." Possibly, if "the people" had not had "a 


distaste" for the g-overument of Lords and Gentleiueu at home, in 
Eughiud, they would not have had the honor of priviufi;- to the Colony 
of Couneeticut '• the tirst written Constitution the world ever saw." 
The Patentees, thus thwarted by the Dorchester j)arty, sent to 
their lately-appointed (rovernor, John Wiuthrop, Jr., to Saybrook, 
where they had erected a fort and commenced a settlement; and he, 
with Sir Henry Vane, then at Boston, opened neg'otiations with " the 
river towns," claimiu;:^ that "either of the three towns ^^oue thither 
[i. e., to the Connecticut River] nuist ^'ive place." But this claim 
was ultimately abandoned. (From the Reci.<eil Historij and Genealo-

sor to Thomas Bissell and removed to Hartford, where he had 
brothers. A few years later (1659) he died, and the result of a 
close examination of Probate Ilecords (18H6) shows that in the set- 
tlement of his debts, the distribution of his estate appears, with the 
names of his children, among whom that of the alleged witch does 
not appear. She must have died, either by a natural death, or was 
executed; probably the latter.

Page 106, Noah Stiles, (Family 8), was a weaver also, as appears from the MS. 
account or Church Hate Book kept by Rev. Timothy Edwards, of 
East Windsor, — wherein he is noted as paying his rates (1730-1) by 
"weaving 50 yards of linnen cloth, s<ime of it being strip'ed;" he 
also supplies cotton, flax, wheat, oats, and "18 yards of drugget." 
His uncle, Ebenezer (Family 7, p. 103) seems also to have been a 
weaver — on the same authority. His son, Noah Stiles (No. 140), 
died Sept. 19, 1807. {Rev. IShnhael BartMl, Minister's Rec); and his 
wife, Martha Osborn, died at East Windsor, March 15, 1806, ve. 68. 
Page 125. Rev. Abel Stiles. The portrait of this venerable pastor, presented on 
page 125, is taken from one which (with its mate, the portrait of 
his wife), is now in the possession of Dr. Nathaniel M. Freeman. 
of New York City. The artist was Jonathan Trumbull, son of Gov. 
Jonathan Trumbull, of Connecticut, and these pictures are hand- 
some specimens of his style. The "lineal descent" of these 
portraits of the Rev. Abel and his wife (who was Alethea Robinson — 
gee page 128) can be traced as follows: jMrs. Alethea (Robinson) 
Stiles, who died 1786; her daughter Alethea, who married Hadloek 
Marcy, and died 1784, see page 128; their daughter Sophia, who 
married Maj. Joseph Ftyx, 1783, page 129; their daughter Mary 
Baron, who was bom 1785, and married Rev. Nathaniel i'Veem/«n, 
born in 1778. He died 185-1; she died 1836; their son, Nath- 
aniel M. Freeman, M. D., of New York City. 

Mrs, Alethea (Robinson) Stiles was the daughter (as stated on 
page 128) of Rev. John Robinson and his wife Hannah Wisicall, 
who was the daughter of Rev. Ichabod Wiswall and Prisciila Pea- 
body, who was the daughter of William Peabody and his wife 
Elizabeth Ahhn, who was the daughter of Joh.n Alden, of Plymouth, 
celebrated in .\meri('an song and story as the successful wooer of 
Priscilla MuUins (Molines).

Hollister {Hist, of Connecticut, i., 252, Note) says: " I will here 
put upon record a little anecdote, told me by a venerable giaduate 
of Yale College, that may *>erve to illustrate at once the manners of 
President Stiles, and the reverence with which he was regarded by 
the students. ' I knew him well,' said my informant, ' and honored 
him, for I hardly dared to love him. He was small in stature, but 
■when he came up the chapel aisle, and bowed to the right and left 
as we all stood up to receive him, he filled up the space so that you 
could not put an eighteen-pence between him and the pews !' " 

Page 207. Referring to this /i/s^or;/ (</" ^/<e Judges, Hollister says: "The more I 
read President Stiles' History of the three Judges, the more I am 
induced to trust myself to him as an authority. His diligence in 
searching out details and traditionary evidence is almost without a 
parallel, and I find tliat most of his conclusions stand the severest 
test."— Note to p. 239. Hollister s Hist. Conn., i., 239. 

To the list of Pres. Stiles' MSS. in Yale College Library, must be 
added the following in that of the Massachusetts Historical Society: 
The MS. of his Ecclesiastical History of New England (never pub- 
lished), containing about 1 80 pages in his beautiful handwriting, and 
nine maps, very neatly done with the pen. It bears different dates, 
from March 3d to April 20, 17G9 ; also, some copy booksand papers evi- 
dently intended for the continuation and revision of the history 

the largest of which is perhaps. " A Summary View of theReligious 
State of the Colony of Ehode Island and Providence Plantations in 
New England, from A. D. 1636 to 177-4," of which there are two 
copies, the last one endorsed in Dr. Holmes' hand, "Trumbull MS. 
from Dr. Stiles." There is also a "List of N. E. Churches and 
Pastors, lives of emminent Ministers, memoirs, Ac, &c." — dates of 
1768-179-1.— (3/ Hist. Soc. Coll. XVII., i:i:\.

her brother. She was married in I860 to Edwin O. Seymour, of 
Chicago, where she resided up to the time of her death, midiing 
annual pilgrimages to her old home here to visit her mother, sis- 
ters and brother, and her aged grandmother, so Umg as that lady 
lived. She was of a sweet, loveable disposition, ever ready to assist 
in works of charity, and her pleasant home was always open to her 
friends and the stranger within the gates. Her hc^spitality was 
mjirked. Mrs. Seymour had a remarkably sweet voice, and she 
sang in St. Paul's Univer.salist Church, Chicago, for seven years. 


until the church was burned at the time of the great fire, and after- 
ward for many years in a Con<,Tegutional church. Her mother, 
after the death of her aged grandmother, went to live with Mrs. 
Seymour at her Chicago home, but she lived but a short time.

Page 358. Gen. Israel Newton Stiles died at Chicago, 111., January 17th. 1895. 
He had been blind for several years previous. He was educated at 
the Suffield Liteiary Academy, and in 1852 moved West, settling in 
Lafayette, Ind. He taught school and read law for the next three 
years, and shortly after was admitted to the bar. He practiced 
with Judge Everett of Indiana and at this time attracted attention 
to those oratorical powers for which he has always been distin- 
guished, by a remarkaljle speech at a public meeting called in con- 
• nection with the burning of Lawrence, Kas. During the Fremont- 
Buchanan campaign he exerted considerable influence through his 
recognized power as an orator. He was for two years Prosecuting 
Attorney and then elected to the State Legislature. In 1861 he 
raised a company, but the Captaincy being given to some one else 
he enlisted as a private, but was soon made Adjutant of the 
Twentieth Indiana. He became Colonel of the Sixty-third Indiana. 
He was at Franklin, Tenn.. Hesaca, and on Sherman's march to the 
sea. He was wounded slightly in the head during an engagement 
by a fragment of an exploding shell. At the close of the war he was 
commissioned Brevet Brigadier-General, the commission dating 
from the battle of Franklin, Tenn., Jan. 31, 1863. He passed six 
weeks as a prisoner in Libby Prison and then was exchanged. At 
the close of the war he came to Chicago, and soon formed the part- 
nership known for many years as Tuley, Stiles & Lewis. When 
Judge Tuley retired, the firm continued as Stiles & Lewis until 
1889, when the General's ill health.and failing eye-sight compelled 
a dissolution of the firm. He was a man ot exceedingly positive 
views and bitterly hated hypocrisy and rascality. Among his 
famous cases are recalled the prosecution of Joe Mackin and the 
"boodle" County Coimnissioners. Although he preferred civil 
law he was frequently employed in criminal and (jua-si-criminal 
cases, where his profound knowledge and his bitter, scathing, 
denunciatory oratory made him a power. He was an active par- 
tisan and engaged heartily in political campaigns, but apparently 
more from the pleasure of using his oratorical powers than from 


the desire of office, as he never accepted any office, excepting only 
t-wo years' service as City Attorney. Gen. i^tiles belonged to no 
religious body, but was prominent in liberal philnsopLical circles. 
He made an address at the grave of his first wife, •which attracted 
much attention at the time He was a deep student of philoso- 
phies, and had many friends among thinking men. He formed an 
extensive library of philosophical and cognate Looks. He amassed 
a comfortable ftrtune, iind during the lust few years lived upon the 
interest of his investments. His daughter Thej.doaia No. 1,1-i-i) 
married Paul A. Doty, and (1895) resides at Paterson, N J. His 
two sons reside in Chicago.

For several years past we had ' ' pieced out" from various sources, 
{D tbatthisTHOMAsSxiLEs, son of" Long Jonathan" (p. 505) married 
Abigail 0<jdtn, (not ^Vheeler as there stated.) " of Snarling Street;" 
(2) that she was the daughter of Daniel Ogden, once member of the 
New Jersey Assembly, and his wife Ann Burwell— i J/5. Gen. by 
Wm. B. Ogdeu, of Chicago and New York, deceased); (3) that she 
was baptized Sept. 16, 1745 (Firsi Ch. Bee. Moiristuicn, X. J.; (i) 
that " Snarling Street on the Hill" is a locality about 21-^ miles east 
of Morristown- (Zeftev of L. 0. Sf.ies). Then, by First Ch. Bee, 
Morrisioicn, (5) that his widow Abigail married {2) Enoch Goble, 
being his first wife. He. according to tradition, married a second 
wife," Mary Cooper, in 1778, who died in 1798, cc. 52, leaving no 

issue; he then married again, who died about 1804, a widow. 

Two children of Thomas and Abigail (Ogden) Stiles (^John and 
James), on her marriage to Enoch Golde, came under his care and, 
subsequently, upon her death, under the care of his second wife, Mary 
Cooper; and she must have been a good stepmother to them, judg- 
ing from the stubborn tangle of tradition in various branches of the 
family, which insists upon her be^pg their own mother; and the 
fact that one of these Stiles' boys (John) named a son William Cooper 
Stiles, who is now a respected citizen of Philadelphia; and the other 
(James Stiles) named a daughter Mary Cooper. 

These were the deduetiims arrived at from evidence both ma- 
terial and traditional, by my friend D. Williams Patterson, (lately 
deceased, a most experienced genealogist) and myself. Later, how- 
ever, I noticed on page 522 (the book having got thus far into print) 
that the John and James, sons of Joseph Stiles. Family 8, seemed 
to be identical with these children of Thomas Stiles, as above given. 
And, the more I considered the matter, the more the evidence 
seemed to favor the theory that they were indeed the chlklren of 
Thomas and Abi.jaU {0<jden) Siiltrs, and that consequently they should 
be erased from (Joseph's) Family S. 


So the matter rested, until a full year later, I received a com- 
mnnication from Miss Helen Hcber, of (Termantown, Philadelphia, 
claiming descent from "Jonathan Stiles" who removed to Pequan- 
nock, N. J., from Stratford, Conn., about 1731, and his son Thomas 
SlUes, who married Abigail Ogden; and wishinj^ to know more about 
the earlier generations. This lettir identified Miss Huber's con- 
nection very directly with John Stiles, son of Thomas and Abigail, 
and grandson of "Long" Jonathan of Morristown, N. J.; and, of 
course with the Connecticut Emigrant of 1635, from England. That 
chain was now complete, and Miss Huber kindly furnished me with 
the records of the Philadelphia Stiles Famih/ as given hereafter. 

Meanwhile, I had come into correspondence with Lafe Steles 
Pence, Esq., of Lebanon, Ky., who wrote me that there was a con- 
siderable Stiles " connection" in that part of his state, who origin- 
ally came from Morristown. N. J.; though, as the earliest one he 
could name was David Stiles, who came into Kentucky about 1^09, 
I could not for a long while discover the " connecting point," there 
being no Jersey David to ' fit the bill." Yet Mr. Pence's letters 
and especially numerous extracts which he furnished of family cor- 
respondence during the first third of the present century, (as -nell 
as the family names themselves, in his line) satisfied me that his 
was a Jersey family; and probably from Morristown, or its vicinity. 
From his numerous papers, and bits of family correspondence, 
however, I constructed a family in outline, of hro brothers and four 
sisters, for whom (as yet) neither he, nor I, could find a father. 

Just here, only a few days ago (April, 189-4) as we were puz- 
zling our brains over this matter, my old friend and Jersey helper, 
Mr. Lewis Ogden Stixes, of Morristown, N. J., came to the rescue 
with a number of abstracts of deeds from the Morris Co. Record othce, 
which furnished (as it seems to us) Ihe father of David — viz., the 
same Thomas Stilfs of Pequannock, who mamed Abigail Ogden! 
Though these deeds do not mention John, ancestor of the Phila- 
delphia Branch, or James, whose family (No. 22) is given on page 
552, still one of them, ( Book i, Detds, Folio 4-^^) mentions the fact 
of Thomas having eiijht children, though they are not therein named; 
and the other deeds identify him (Thomas) as the father of six 
children, who agree perfectly with the six i2 brothers and 4 sisters) 
furnished from Mr. Pence's papers. In the division of his estate, 
the sons, at least David and Jacob (of the Pence papers) seem to 
have received each 1^, and the daughters each ly of the property. 

From Mr. Lewis O. Stiles' notes of deeds, etc., it would seem 
that Thomas Stiles' first purchase in Pequannock Township, was of 
about 20 acres, August 9, 17t;.5, from Thomas Milledge ( AVc. at Perth 
Amboy, Book A. B. 5-J7.>); frecjuent mention of him occurs in en- 
tries made, between 1755 and 1768, in his brother Ebenezer's 
private Account Book referred to on page 520; he was living in 1775, 

742 ^"^ ST/L£S FAMILY. 

(as per Book T. T., Deeds, Folio 527); and certainly as late as 1778, 
April 28 of wbirh year be bad by deed (not recorded) 8 and one- 
tentb acres, considerution £1U, 0^, at Beacb Glen, N. J.; and on tbe 
22d of following montb, tbe executors of Jacob Ford deeded to bim 
(unrecorded) 50}o acres, for £1-10, Provincial money, at same place — 
lot still known as " tbe Stiles lot," in Pequaunock Townsbip, "near 
tbe bead of Horse Pond Brook" (near Hibernia. L. 0. S.). 

We may remark tbat tbe date of bis marriage probably coin- 
cides pretty nearly witb tbat of bis first purcbaae of land, in 1765; 
his -wife being tben 20 and be probably 25 or 30 years of age. In 
this connection, bowever, we meet with a tradition so strong and 
common in several branches of tbe connection that we must recog- 
nize it, even if we do not see our way to explain its disagreement 
with tbe admitted facts of tbe family which we have "puzzled to- 
gether" for bim. This tradition is tbat be was "a young man" at 
the time of bis death and that bis wife married a second time (see 
page 740) and did not long survive her second marriage. If be bad 
died in 1778, or thereabouts, he would have been about 48 years 
old, and might therefore have been considered relatively young, for 
these times. But the dates of the deeds in the settlement of his 
estate among bis heirs at law (mostly about 1805 and 1806) would 
(assuming that he had died in 1803) make him quite an old m'^n- 
and would leave bis widow little chance of marrying a second time. 
Then Enoch Goble who took Abigail (Ogden) Stiles as his frst wife 
(page 740) is said to have married his secoxd, Mary Cooper, in ITTS, 
one account says March 12 of tbat year. If we bad not tbe evidence 
of tbe deed of May 2d of tbat year to Thomas, from the executors of 
Jacob Ford, we might admit (as 1778 is the last lirimj date we have 
of him) tbat he died in 1778, and that his widow man-ied Goble, 
uithovt much delay, in the same year. But, if so, his estate would 
certainly have been settled up among his heirs before 1805 — a lapse 
of 27 years!! 

Again, if he died in 1778, it upsets all the tradition (which is 
quite too strongly marked to be disregarded) about bis two eldest 
sons, John and James, jmssing into the care of their Guble step- 
mother, Mary Cooper. 

Mr. Pence, to whom I have submitted this matter (in proof- 
sheets), is not satistied that John and James v/vre children of 
Thomas and A>)igail Stiles, d) b. cause be finds no mention of them 
in tbe family letters, or in tbe deeds, etc , to which we have 
referred; and (2) because Elizajieih (according to his dates) and 
James (according to Miss Ruber's dates) seem to have been born in 
the same year (1761). In regard to these objections, we may sub 
mit (1) tbat as John and Jamks were brought up by Enoch Goble 
and his second wife (Mary Coi^jier), the other children might have 
been similarly taken and cared for by other branches of the family. 



and so the intercourse between the children inttrrupted— as not 
infrequently happens in an orphaned family, (ii As to Jajies and 
Eliz-vbeth havinj:; been born in same year — they may have been 
born tir'uiS. Written records frequently fail to help us, especially 
in a dismembered family like this — we have to "read between the 
lines " of snch scant information as we can glean, and we must not 
entii-ely discard tradition. 

Mr. Pence also challenges our supposition that Thomas and 
Abigail were married about 1765- -since James' and Elizabeth's 
births antedate that year. 

Altogether, it is a nice little specimen of " the holes" in which 
genealogists sometimes find themselves in the prosecution of their 
searches; and we leave it for some one else to clear up. 

As reconstructed, however, to the best of our ability, we have 
the following: 

Thomas^ Stiles, (Long Jonathan,'^ Isaac,'^ Jofni,^) born at Morris 
Plains, N. J.; married, probably 1765, Abigail Ogden, daughter of 
David Ogden, member of the Assembly of New Jersey, and his wife 
Ann Burwell. She was baptized Sept. 16, 174:5 {1st Church Beconh, 
Morristoicn, X. J.) Thomas died young; his widow married (2) 
Enoch Goble, and lived but a short time; after her death Goble 
married, March 12, 1778, Mary Cooper who brought up John and 
James Stiles, and doubtless they never knew any other mother, and 
cherished for her an affectionate remembrance, for John named a 
son William Cooper, and James [Family 22] named a daughter 
Mary Cooper, after her. Enoch Goble died Dec. 2, 1823, te. 69, 
{1st Church Records, Morristoicn, X. J.) 

Cliildreii (born at Morristown. N. J.); 

I. James, born, according to Jliss Huber. 1761, (which would 

agree with our date of his age and death, p. 553) . He was 
baptized April 30, 1790— i^rs^ Church, Morristoicn Rec, 
which call him " a young man;" married Phfbe Aber. 
Miss Huber gives Oct. 7, 1811, as the exact date of his 
death; and states that he was a tiiuner. Family 22, p. 552. 

II. David*, (the ancestor of the Kentucky FamiJij) — named Dttni>\ by 

,Miss HvBER (page 741) but incorrectly, as I think; the two 

* Since writing, my conjecture has been fully verified by Mr. Lewis Ogden Stiles, wlio by 
personal inspection of this record ( Wills, Book 40, folio so'), at Trenton. N. J.) finds that let- 
ters of administration on the Estate of Thomas Stiles of Morris Co.. were granted ' to 
Stiles, late of Morris Co.," N. J. Sept. 27, 1803. Value 52S6.85. This seems to identify David 
(ancestor of the Kentucky Family,) with Thomas Stiles' family. 

Mr. L. O. Stiles also writes me " no Will of Record is to be found in State Dep t from i6»)o 
to 1S04. There is nothing of record in the adiuinistration showing names of chiKireii," etc. 


names are easily mistaken in writing. She gives 1762, 
and Mr. Pence gives 17G0 as date of his birth. See 
Family 1 foUoicinfj. 

ni. John, (the ancestor of the Phlki'Mphia Fttmlly) born Nov. 1, 176G 
according to Family Bible Record, but according to 1st Church 
Records, Moiristnwn, baptized March 5, 17G3; (it may have 
been 176S); married Nancy Lindsley. See Family 2folhicing.

there August 25, 18'47, 25 hours after his wife's death —

85. Richard Cresson' Stiles, ^l.D. ,[10]{Jain€s,^John/^Tfioinns,^Long Jonathan,^ 
Isaac,^ John,^ ) born Oct. 4, 1830: received his early education in his native city; 
graduated from Y'ale College, 1851; and as M. D., from University of Pennsylvania, 
1854. He continued his professional studies in Europe for three years more, es- 
pecially in physiology-, under the immediate tutorship of Eobin, and in attendance 
on the teachings of Bernard, leading men in the Paris School. Returning to the 
United States, he was Professor of Physiology in the ^Medical Department of the 
University of Vermont for seven consecutive yeaj-s; in the Berkshire Medical Col- 
lege, Pittstield, Mass., 1856-62; and in the College of Physicians and Surgeons, 
New York, 1861-2. In 1858, he again visited Europe for special study in Pathology 
and Physiology. In 1856, he entered the Army, as Surgeon of Volunteers, and re- 
mained until the following year in charge of Military General Hospital, at Pittsburg, 















Pa. Then he joined Hancock's Corps in the Army of the Potomac, as Surgeon-in- 
Chief of Caklwell's Division, particiii;itin<,' in numerous enf^a^ements, includin^^ 
Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Coming to Brooklyn in lHr.4, he was appointed 
Resident Physirian of the Kings Co. Hospital at Flatlmsh. In iscr,, he was made 
Registrar of Vital SUitistics. and later Sanitary Superintendent for the Brooklyn 
District of the Metropolitan Health Department — a i>osition which he retained un- 
til the Metropolitan Health Board was legislated out of existence, in 1870. Diaring 
1S67-8, he was President of the Medical Society of the County of Kings, and was 
livrgely successful in making it an instrument for the promotion of the truly scien- 
tific interests of the profession. 

His labors for the Metropolitan Health Board are undoubtedly among the most 
valuable contributions to its reports. His investigation of the Texas Cattle Disease, 
secured for him a wide scientific reputation as the discoverer of the parasite which 
caused the malady; and his name was hon<U'ed in this connection by th« well-known 
Prof. Hallier, of Iowa, who styled the fungus Oi)iiatheciuin .Stilesianum. His de- 
termination, in 1869, by a ready method of his own devising, of the percentage of 
carbonic acid gas in the atmospheres of various schools, theatres, tenements and 
other places in the Metropolitan District, made the first startling exhibit of the 
very general disregard had for etticient ventilation. His fertile brain and untiring 
industry led to numerous monographs, essays, addresses, contributions to scientific 
journals, and occasionally to the dailj- press. With a fine physique, and a noble 
intellect thoroughly trained, he gave promise of a grand intellectual future. But 
he too often forgot the laws of health in the pursuit of science. 

After his severance from the Health Office, he entered upon private practice 
in Brooklyn, but was soon incapacitated by ill health. He died, at West Chester, 
Pa., after a short illness, April 17, 1873. 

The Memorial to Dr. Stiles, from which we have quoted, prepared by a Com- 
mittee of the Brooklyn Pathological Section of the Kings County iledical Society, 
further says: "On (piestions of physiology and pathological anatomy, he seemed a 
living encyclopedia;" and on every branch and point of these, " no envy can be 
excited by saying that Dr. Stileshad no peer in the profession in Brooklyn. * * He 
knew no idle moments, often disregarding hours tor meals and sleep in the pursuit 
of some absorbing topic. Study and laboratory work were his chief delights, and 
when so occupied he is known to have sometimes thought it waste of time to re- 
spond to a medical call. But once in charge of a patient, he brought every power 
to bear upon the case." His enthusiasm was a marked and attractive feature of his 
character; his facility of composition was (piite remarkable, and he could always 
express himself much more etfectively in writing than by tongue. His private 
character was above reproach; his disposition amiable; without arrogance, and 
sensitive and delicate as that of a woman. Accomplished by study, travel and ob- 
servation; quiet but courteous in manner; faithful in all the relations of life, and 
delightful as a friend, his early death was a loss to Science and Humanity, tis well 
as to his friends. 

Dr. Richard C. Stil.-s, married, in 1856, at Leghorn, Italy, Maria (ilaughter of 
Dr. Thomas) Wells, of New Haven, Conn., who still survives him.

One day, as Dr. Stiles was present in a l)ookstoi-e in Newport, a 
young man dressed like a Quaker entered and expressed bis desire 
to buy a book. "When asked what book? he was embarrassed, seeing 
which, and pleased with something in his appearance, Dr. Stiles 
politely accosted him and engaged him in conversation. Finally the 
lK)ok was selected, and thus began an acquaintance; the young man 
frequently thereafter visiting the kindly Doctor's house and receiving 
from him the advice which he was so well qualified to give. This 
Quaker young man was afterwards known in American history as
