Vol.  n  August,  1909  No.  1 



The  celebration  of  the  quarter-millennium  anniversary  of  the 
founding  of  Hadley  has  brought  to  light  the  fact  that,  in  addition 
to  the  numerous  printed  vrorks  on  this  ancient  town,  there  is  a  vast 
amount  of  unprinted  information  in  the  manuscripts  prepared  by 
the  late  Dr.  Franklin  Bonney  and  his  friend  and  colleague,  Mr. 
Elbridge  Kingsley.  A  very  small  portion  of  this  collection,  it  is 
the  pleasure  of  The  Grafton  Magazine  to  present  in  this  issue, 
and  it  is  to  be  hoped  that,  as  a  result  of  this  publication,  the  town, 
or  some  of  its  public-spirited  sons,  may  be  led  to  provide  for  the 
publication  of  entire  manuscripts  in  the  near  future.  Certain  it  is 
that  few  New  England  towns  have  had  more  unselfish  and  pains- 
taking historians  than  these  two  gentlemen,  and,  if  it  were  not  for  tliem, 
a  great  deal  of  data  would  have  been  entirely  lost.  •.  .         •         ,. 

.      _•-  INTRODUCTION 

By  Elbridge  Kingsley 

It  seems  fitting,  in  view  of  the  coming  celebration  at  Hadley  in 
August,  1909,  that  something  be  said  of  the  Bonney  collection  of 
manuscripts,  preserved  at  the  Forbes  Library,  Northampton. 

In  the  last  part  of  this  physician's  life,  he  was  very  anxious  to 
preserve  all  of  historic  interest  connected  with  his  native  town.     In

this  work  I  was  glad  to  assist  him  in  every  possible  way.     The  work 
grew  under  our  hands  till  his  death. 

The  first  of  it  was  a  gathering  of  inscriptions  from  all  the  cem- 
eteries of  the  town. 

Then  we  made  a  map  of  the  cemetery  at  the  Center,  showing 
prominent  names,  especially  of  early  settlers  of  the  first  sixty  years, 
in  the  ancient  part  of  the  grounds. 

Then  we  conceived  the  idea  that  all  data  connected  with  the  home- 
ir,    steads  of  the  forty-eight  first  settlers  would  be  valuable,  and  we 
made  several  sketch  maps  of  the  broad  Front  Street,  showing  dif- 
ferent periods  of  town  history,  based  mainly  on  the  authority  of 
r       '  Judd.     This  work  also  grew  till  we  had  a  pretty  complete  history  of 
each  homestead  to  the  year  1900. 

Meanwhile,  we  were  not  sure  of  the  old  homestead  boundaries,  as 
the  place  had  undergone  many  changes,  and  both  ends  of  the  street 
were  encroached  upon  by  the  river.  Finally  we  found  time  to  survey 
and  locate  these  old  landmarks,  and  had  the  satisfaction  of  agreeing 
very  nearly  with  traces  of  the  old  lines  yet  to  be  seen.  This  was 
the  last  work  of  Dr.  Bcnney  of  this  nature  in  the  old  town.  We  added 
this  plan  to  our  history  of  the  homesteads. 

Thus,  to  properly  locate  with  the  modem  houses,  this  last  plan 
(reproduced  herewith)  should  be  used.  We  intended  to  add  to  each 
homestead  history  further  memoranda  as  the  facts  came  to  Hght,  and 
this  also  led  naturally  to  a  desire  to  put  into  writing  the  fund  of 
reminiscence  and  legend  with  which  the  Doctor's  memory  was  stored. 
This  he  was  busy  compiling  till  his  death. 

In  all  this  work,  there  was  no  thought  of  gain  or  even  of  publica- 
tion. Our  only  care  was  the  safe  preservation  of  the  collection  for 
the  benefit  of  the  future  historians.  Hence  the  kind  offer  of  the  use 
of  the  safety  vaults  of  the  Forbes  Library  for  storing  the  manu- 
scripts fitted  our  needs,  and  was  accepted. 

I  regret  that  my  life-long  friend  did  not  live  to  see  this  last  celebra- 
tion in  the  old  town  that  he  loved  so  well.

In  placing  the  positions  of  the  original  plots  and  the  houses,  there 
is  much  room  for  conjecture  at  the  present  date  of  1900.  There  is 
no  certainty  of  establishing  the  exact  sites  of  the  first  houses.  The 
original  lines  of  the  plots  can  be  found  nearly  accurately  by  measur- 
ing from  three  points,  namely,  the  lower  road  to  Northampton,  the 
Cemetery,  and  Russell  Street.

These  inscriptions  were  copied  at  various  times  and  entered  in  a 
large  book  which  is  kept  by  the  Forbes  Library.  Many  of  the  stones 
were  so  worn  as  to  be  indecipherable,  and  in  fear  of  the  Indians  many 
of  the  graves  of  the  earHest  settlers  went  unmarked  by  stones  for 
many  years  until  their  descendants  found  it  safe  to  erect  them.  The 
manuscript  contains  the  inscriptions  of  the  entire  Cemetery,  including 
the  new  parts,  but  only  the  old  portions  are  published  here.  They 
have  been  rearranged  in  alphabetical  order.

Mrs.  Rachel  Levy,  who  departed  this  life  the  11th  of  Nov.  1794, 
Aged  55  years." 

On  Nathan  Levy's  stone  a  cross  is  cut  showing  that  this  member 
of  the  priestly  caste  of  God's  chosen  people  had  embraced  Chris- 
tianity. The  Levys  were  persons  of  high  social  position  and  their 
blood  is  mingled  with  the  best  in  this  state,  in  Delaware  and  in  Phila-

both  of  a  later  date.

defender  of  Fort  IMcHenry,  who  died  in  1816  aged  39  years.  He 
married  the  daughter  of  Christopher  and  Peggy  Hughes.  The  lat- 
ter couple  died  within  a  year  of  each  other,  the  first  in  1824,  and  the 
other  in  1825.  Mr.  Hughes  was  a  man  celebrated  for  Ins  wit  and 
social  qualities,  which  won  for  him  an  official  position  abroad,  if  the 
echoes  of  the  past,  handed  down  as  fireside  gossip,  be  true. 

There  is  a  monument  to  the  Rev.  John  Gowan  Blanchard,  but  the 
inscription  is  illegible.  His  wife  Elizabeth,  who  sur^'ived  him,  was

Governors.  He  was  bom  June  4th,  1752,  and  died  Oct.  12th,  1827. 
The  fine  equestrian  statue  erected  to  his  memory  on  Wasliington 
Place  facing  Charles  Street  looking  north,  stands  on  a  part  of  his 
estate  "  Belvidere."  He  gave  the  land  on  which  Washington  ]Monu- 
ment  is  erected,  and  in  the  Chronicles  of  Baltimore  we  find  many  an 
allusion  to  his  gifts  of  city  lots  for  different  benevolent  purposes. 

The  Wyatt  and  Billop  lot  near  the  west  wall,  is  well  kept,  and  railed 
in  with  an  iron  railing.  There  are  a  very  few  of  these  inclosures 
remaining,  a  great  many  families  having  moved  their  dead  to  Green- 
mount,  the  public  cemetery.  For  many  years  the  gaping  graves 
and  briars,  weeds  and  bushes,  gave  it  a  look  of  desertion  and  neglect 
which  raised  the  question  of  its  being  condemned  and  turned  into  a 
city  park.  Fortunately,  latent  loyalty  to  the  dead  and  to  the  spot 
consecrated  by  their  presence  was  aroused,  and  action  was  taken  to 
restore  it  to  some  likeness  of  its  former  self.  It  has  therefore  a  new 
lease  of  life,  and  so  let  us  hope  that  it  may  long  remain  one  of  the 
ancient  landmarks  of  "  Baltimore  Town."

;        REVIEWS    OF    RECENT    BOOKS. 
By  Emma  E.  Brigham 

History  of  the  UxniBsiTY  of  North  Carolina,  from  its  beginning  to  tiie  death 
of  President  Swan,  17S9-1868.  By  Kemp  P.  Battle,  Alumni  Professor  of 
History  in  the  University.  Vol.  I,  to  be  followed  by  Vol.  II,  bringinn-  the 
history  to  the  present  time.  Printed  for  the  Author  by  Edwards  &  Rroughton 
Printing  Company,  Raleigh,  N.  C.  Cloth  8vo,  BSO  pp.  Illustrated.  Price 
$3.     (Carriage  extra). 

One  of  the  far  reaching  events  of  that  wonderful  year,  1776,  was  the  action  of 
a  Convention  which  met  at  Halifax,  N.  C,  to  form,  primarily  a  constitution  for 
the  new  state  of  North  Carolina.  Not  content,  however,  with  founding  a  state, 
they  went  further  and  provided  for  "one  or  more"  universities.  Before  a  charter 
was  given  a  war  had  to  be  fought  and  governmental  and  industrial  conditions 
settled.  In  I7S9  North  Carolina  entered  the  union  of  states,  and  the  same  year 
granted  a  charter  to  the  University  of  North  Carolina.  Professor  Battle  tells 
how  heartily  the  foremost  people  of  the  state  co-operated  by  gifts  of  land  and 
money  to  insure  the  success  of  the  important  undertaking.  The  further  st\in.-  of 
seventy-nine  years  of  faithful  effort  is  admirably  given  in  this  first  volume. 
Professor  Battle  writes  vividly  and  feelingly  from  a  wealth  of  records,  memoirs, 
family  histories  and  reminiscences.  Though  seeking  chiefly  to  be  accurate,  the 
author  has  succeeded  in  being  both  interesting  and  inspiring. 

CoxcEExixo  THE  Vax  BrxscHOTzx  OK  Vax  Bexschotex  Family  ix  America. 
A  Genealog}-  and  a  Brief  History.  By  W.  H.  Van  Benschoten,  West-Park- 
On-Hudson,  N.  Y.  1907.  Cloth  8vo,  814  pp.  and  60  pp.  of  Index.  Illustrated. 
Theunis  Eliasen,  the  founder  of  the  Van  Benschoten  family  in  America,  had 
a  curious  fashion  of  using  his  surname  only  on  state  occasions.  His  neighbors 
habitually  spoke  of  him  as  "  Theunis  Eliasen  "  (Tuenis  son  of  Elias)  and  it  is 
fortunate  for  his  historian  that  occasionally  he  used  his  full  name  in  legal  docu- 
ments. His  favorite  signature  appears  to  have  been  his  "  mark "  the  trident. 
Several  pages  in  this  history,  quoted  from  the  old  records  of  Kingston,  N.  Y., 
attest  the  ability,  generosity  and  standing  of  Theunis  Eliason  Van  Benschoten 
in  the  community.  Faithful  work  has  been  done  among  the  old  Dutch  records 
of  New  York,  and  from  them  and  other  sources  a  rarely  interesting  family  history 
has  been  compiled.  One  who  stood  out  from  his  fellows  in  the  last  century  by 
reason  of  his  devotion  to  scholarship,  was  James  Cooke  Van  Benschoten,  the 
beloved  Greek  professor  of  Wesleyan  University.  Another  meml>er  of  this  old 
Knickerbocker  family  was  Henry  Bergh,  founder  and  President  of  the  New  York 
Society  for  the  Prevention  of  Cruelty  to  .Animals.  The  foreword  of  the  author 
throws  light  upon  his  purpose  and  methods,  and  the  familiar  style  in  which 
much  of  the  text  is  written,  leaves  a  pleasing  impression.  ,.,

This  is  a  preliminary  pamphlet,  designed  to  attract  the  attention  of  the  members 
of  the  Pomero}'  race  in  America,  to  the  fact  that  the  Association  wishes  all 
the  data  to  be  obtained  regarding  the  family.  The  Pomeroys  are  represented  in 
America  by  individuals  in  the  tenth,  eleventh  and  twelfth  generations,  and  their 
English  history  covers  a  period  of  900  years  back  to  the  Conquest  by  the  Normans. 
'The  Association  has  come  into  tlie  possession  of  an  enormous  collection  of  vital

This  is  a  well  written  genealogy,  with  claims  on  the  attention  of  a  large  family, 
•some  of  whom  the  author  regrets  have  as  yet  paid  no  heed  to  repeated  requests 
for  data.  The  first  of  the  name  who  came  to  America  was  Robert  Parke,  in  the 
.ship,  Arbella,  with  Winthrop.  From  a  probable  residence  in  Roxbury,  he  went 
to  Connecticut,  and  was  prominent.  The  descendants  of  Richard  Parke,  of 
'Cambridge,  Mass.,  fill  the  larger  part  of  the  book.  He  came  from  London  in  the 
ship  Defence.  His  second  wife  was  the  widow  of  Love  Brewster.  The  book  is 
•well  indexed,  printed  and  bound,  and  wiU  unquestionably  be  much  sought  by 
genealogists  and  others.

An  unworked  field  of  historical  research  has  proven  extremely  fruitful.     The 

•Germans  came  into  the  valley  at  first  and  chiefly   from  Pennsylvania,   although 

•some  other  near  by  sections  contributed  slightly  to  that  element.     Following  the 

Revolutionary  war,  Hessian  soldiers,  who  came  here  in  the  pay  of  the  British, 

remained   in   considerable   numbers,   and   not   a    few   settled    in    the   Shenandoah 

•  country.     The  Dunkers,  a  German  religious  body,  came  in  the  later  years  of  the 

war  from  Pennsylvania,  and  with  the  Mennonites,  United  Brethren,  Lutherans 

and  Reformed  Church  people,  have  strongholds  in  the  valley,  mainly  in  Rocking- 

'ham  or  Shenandoah  counties. 

For  reasons  faithfully  set  forth  in  the  ninth  chapter,  the  Germans  of  this 
region  held  themselves  aloof  from  politics,  and  as  far  as  possible  from  war, 
in  the  early  days,  but  in  the  Civil  war  the  men  of  German  origin  seem  to  have 
held  their  own  in  numbers  and  valor,  chiefly  on  the  Confederate  side. 

The  work  is  a  valuable  addition  to  the  study  of  the  race  elements  in  the  United

This  valuable  ^nealogy  has  been  offered  to  the  family  and  the  public  after 
years  of  painstaking  research.  Thomas  Chaffe,  whose  descendants  are  here 
traced,  was  in  Hingham  by  1635.  Where  he  came  from  or  by  what  routes  he 
reached  Hingham  are  unknown.  The  name  of  his  wife  has  not  been  found.  The 
settlers  of  Hingham  (Hull)  had  a  verj-  hard  time,  and  by  1(560  Thomas  Chaffe  is 
found  to  be  one  of  the  proprietors  of  Rehoboth.  He  made  his  home  on  the  west 
bank  of  the  Barrington  (Sowams)  River,  and  in  1C6S  his  estate  became  a  part 
of  the  new  town  of  Swansea.  Here  his  children  lived  and  his  grandchildren 
remained  for  the  most  part.  A  map  shows  the  direction  of  the  migrations  of 
the  earlier  Chaffees  from  the  old  homesteads.  The  biographical  sketches  in  this 
volume  are  vtrj'  full,  and  family  traditions  and  stories  are  numerous.  Tlie  early 
documents,  quoted  in  full  or  in  part,  would  of  themselves  form  a  small  book. 
Mathew  Chaffe,  a  contemporary  of  the  immigrant  Thomas,  is  given  an  exten- 
sive biography,  although  he  is  not  known  to  have  been  connected  with  the  family 
of  Thomas.  The  story  of  the  family  in  England  is  also  as  complete  as  the 
records  would  permit.  The  book  is  well  indexed,  and  has  an  extensive  place 
index,  also.     The  type,  paper  and  binding  are  excellent.

A  skilled  hand  has  resurrected  the  Blandford  of  a  hundred  and  more  years 
ago.  Seldom  does  a  book  give  the  reader  a  stronger  impression  of  living  among 
the  scenes  described.  The  old  roads  and  trees  give  up  their  ancient  secrets  and 
the  old  hearthstones  onces  again  brightly  glow  as  the  imacination  is  quickened 
by  the  art  of  the  author.  Blandford  has  always  been  on  the  main  route  between 
places  of  larger  importance,  and  its  roads  and  taverns  were  of  especial  interest 
to  the  traveller.  The  book  is  well  printed,  excellently  illustrated,  and  every  native 
or  descendant  of  a  native  of  the  town  should  prize  this  tale  of  eighteenth  century 
customs  and  people. ,  i  r ,        !

Nicholas  and  Samuel  Gentry,  the  immigrants,  are  recorded  as  land  owners  in 
New  Kent  County,  Va.,  16S4.     So  many  of  the  Virginia  Parish  records  have  been 
destroyed  by  fire  that  complete  lines  of  descent  have  sometimes  been  difficult  to 
obtain.     The  fourth  generation  of  Gentrys  furnished  the   Revolutionary'   soldiers 
of  the  family,  and  after  the  war  they  were  early  pioneer  settlers  in  North  Caro- 
lina,  Tennessee  and   Kentucky.     In   the  fifth   generation   the   Gentrys  settled   in 
almost  every  southern  state    and  territory,  and  migrated  to  the  westward.     The 
trend  of  the   family  has  been   toward   agriculture.      Many  of  them   being  large

While  waiting  for  the  long-promised  Randall  genealog}',  this  volume,  regard- 
ing the  Easton  Randalls,  descended  from  the  immigrant,  Robert  Randall,  who 
settled  in  Weymouth  in  1G35,  is  very  welcome.  The  compiler  of  this  work,  the 
author  of  The  History  of  Easton,  Massachusetts,  became  interested  in  this  im- 
portant family,  from  a  genealogical  standpoint,  daring  his  labors  upon  the  town 
history.  An  introductory  chapter  by  Aaron  F.  Randall,  regarding  the  Randall 
families  of  America,  shows  how  numerous  they  are  in  the  United  States  to-day. 
This  work  "  has  rescued  from  threatened  oblivion  the  names  of  some  members 
of  the  family  whose  characters  and  services  well  deserved  to  be  kept  in  remem- 
brance by  some  such  memorial  as  this."

Some  of  the  descendants  of  Francis  and  Caleb  Nicholls  have  been  much  in 
the  public  eye  in  later  years.  Sarah  Nicholls,  the  daughter  of  Caleb,  married 
Moses  Wheeler,  Jr.,  of  Stratford.  One  of  her  descendants  was  Major-General 
Joseph  Wheeler,  of  Georgia,  a  Confederate  general  of  the  Civil  war,  to  whom 
the  volume  is  dedicated.  He  was  descended  in  a  double  line  from  Caleb  and 
his  wife,  Anne  Warde.  One  of  the  most  enterprising  of  this  family  of 
Wheelers,  and  descended  from  Moses  Nicholls,  Jr.,  was  Hon.  Nathaniel 
Wheeler,  of  Bridgeport,  Conn.,  the  chief  organizer,  and  for  many  years  the 
president  of  the  Wheeler  and  Wilson  Sewing  Machine  Company.  Rear-Admiral 
Andrew  Hull  Foot,  one  of  the  heroes  of  the  Civil  War  on  the  Union  side,  is 
another  descendant  of  Caleb  Nicholls.  This  ^^-ork  is  in  two  parts.  Part  II  in- 
cludes notes  on  the  intermarriages  of  the  Nicholls  families.

This  is  a  bright,  up-to-date  picture  of  Spain.  An  excellent  chapter  on  "  Sug- 
gestions to  Travellers  "  opens  the  book,  with  practical  advice,  which  a  novice  in 
travel  would  find  very  useful.  Visits  to  the  well-known,  but  always  interesting- 
places,  such  as  Biarritz  and  San  Sebastian,  Madrid,  Toledo,  Sevilla,  Granada^ 
Barcelona,  etc.,  make  up  a  charming  story  of  travel  of  the  present  day  with 
enough  of  the  historical  to  form  a  background.

The  latest  study  of  Roger  Williams,  fills  a  vacant  place  in  biographical  work, 

previous   accounts   having   been   scarcely  more   than   pamphlets,   save  one,   which 

left  much  untold  about  this  remarkable  man. 

The   introductory   chapter    is    a    concise   yet    vivid    story    of   the    struggle    for 

religious    freedom    in     England,   during   the   years    following   the    Reformation.

The  controversies  of  the  historians  regarding  the  birthplace  of  Roger  Williams, 
his  parentage,  causes  for  leaving  England,  and  other  matters  of  interest  re- 
garding his  career  in  the  old  country,  are  fully  set  forth  in  the  first  chapter,  in 
which  scholarly  deductions  are  drawn,  Roger  Williams'  life  in  New  England, 
before  his  enforced  departure  into  the  wilderness,  receives  consideration  in  six 
chapters.  In  summing  up  the  reasons  for  the  attitude  of  the  authorities  toward 
him  it  is  shown  that  it  was  not  because  he  held  opinions  which  were  new  and 
dangerous,  that  he  was  expelled  from  Massachusetts  Bay  Colony,  but  because  he 
"  broached  and  dyvidgcd  "  them,  and  went  to  such  lengths  in  his  love  of  con- 
troversy and  argument.  Mr.  Carpenter,  however,  further  shows  that  his  banishment 
"  is  a  matter  interwoven  with  the  history  of  the  day  and  times,  with  far  more 
intricacy  than  is  usually  understood."  The  first  man  to  form  a  government  in 
which  entire  freedom  in  religion  was  secured  to  the  people,  Roger  Williams,  gave 
to  the  world  a  grand  idea,  "  which  in  these  later  times  has  burst  forth  into  a  full 
blaze  of  glory,"

Joseph  Northrup  is  said,  on  good  authority,  to  have  come  from  England  in  the 
ship  Ilfctor  and  ^Tnrtha,  and  he  made  his  entrance  to  America  at  Boston,  July 
26,  1637.  He  was  one  of  Eaton  and  Davenport's  company,  spoken  of  as  per- 
sons of  "  good  characters  and  fortunes."  Some  have  asserted  that  he  was  of 
the  Sir  Richard  Saltonstall  company.  Just  what  English  county  he  came  from 
is  not  known,  but  the  two  companies  were  recruited  in  Yorkshire,  Hertfordshire 
and  Kent,  which  narrows  the  search  for  an  English  origin  of  the  Northrups 
considerably.  Milford,  Conn.,  was  settled  by  members  of  these  companies,  and 
here  Joseph   Northrup  is   found  uniting  with  the   First  Church  on  January  9,

Familiar  subjects  are  seldom  so  transformed  by  literary  skill  or  genius  as  to 
seem  new  and  more  desirable  than  fresher  topics.  The  chapters  which  form 
this  volume  are:  "The  Apprenticeship  of  Washington";  "The  Hanging  of 
Mary  Dyer";  "The  Adventures  of  Myles  Standish";  "The  Education  of  John 
Harvard,"  and  "  The  Forefathers  of  Jamestown."  These  are  not  titles  which 
suggest  anything  unique;  in  fact,  it  almost  seems  as  if  the  last  word  had  been 
said  long  ago.  But  Dr.  Hodges  has  unusual  points  of  view,  and  by  reason  of 
birth  and  training  has  an  especial  understanding  and  sjTnpathy  with  both  sides 
in  the  contest  between  the  Pilgrim  and  Puritan  and  the  Church  of  England. 
His  interpretations  are  exceedingly  interesting,  and  are  often  condensed  into  a 
few  words  with  telling  effect.

After  years  of  effort,  this  much  desired  work  has  taken  its  place  among  the 
best  of   recently   published    genealogies.     The   progenitor   of   the    family,   whose 
course  in  this  country  is  here  traced,  was  a  spiritual  leader  of  men  in  the  move- 
ment which  gave  a  new  nation  to  the  world.     Nothing  in  these  volumes,  however, 
is  clearer,  than  that  he  was  the  "  chief  civil  adviser  and  trusted  guide  until  the 
time   of  his   death,"   of   the   young  colony.     The   inventory   of   Elder   Brewster's 
library,  occupies  about  eight  pages  in  small  print,  more  than  twice  as  many  as 
are  devoted  to  his  household   goods.     Dreary  reading  as  it  would  seem  to  most 
modem  book-lovers,  it  doubtless  yielded   much  satisfaction  to   the  men  of  that 
community.     The  Brewster  Book,  four  pages  of  wliich  are  illustrated,  is  an  old

complete  the  magnificent  record  of  a  widespread  family. 

The  Holmaxs  ix  America.  Concerning  the  Descendants  of  Solaman  Holman, 
-who  settled  in  West  Xewburj-,  Massachusetts,  in  1692-3.  One  of  whom  is  Wil- 
liam Howard  Taft,  the  President  of  the  United  States.  Including  a  page  of 
other  lines  of  Holmans  in  America,  with  notes  and  anecdotes  of  those  of  the 
name  in  other  countries.  By  Da\id  Emory  Holraan,  M.  D.,  of  Attleboro. 
Massachusetts,  U.  S.  A.  The  Grafton  Press,  Xew  York,  1909.  Vol.  I,  8vo,' 
cloth.     Illustrated.     Price  J7.00  net    (carriage  extra). 

Although  the  greater  part  of  this  book  concerns  the  descendants  of  Solaman 
Holman,  the  scope  of  the  work  is  indicated  first,  by  some  of  the  early  chapters, 
relating  to  notable  indivduals  in  England,  viz.:  Lieut.  James  Holman, 'the  "  bUnd 
traveler,"  Joseph  George  Holman,  actor  and  dramatist,  and  Francis  Holman, 
painter  of  St.  George,  Middlesex,  Eng.  Also,  by  a  chapter,  entitled,  "  Ancestors 
of  other  Holman  lines,"  in  which  are  named,  Edward  Holman.  of  Ph-mouth 
Mass.,  a  colonist  of  16,^3;  Ezekiel  Holman,  of  Pro%idence,  R.  I.,  who  came  in 
16S1;  John  of  Dorchester,  William  of  Boston  and  Cambridge,  .Mass.,  and  others. 
Solaman  Holman  (1671-^-1753),  settled  "On  the  rich,  productive  and  well- 
watered  farm  of  eighty  acres,  on  the  hiU-top  of  West  Xewburv."  After  three 
generations  all  traces  of  this  first  family  of  twelve  children,  was  gone  from  the 
place  of  their  birth.  Descendants  of  this  line  were  among  the  pioneers,  Indian- 
fighters,  Revolutionary'  and  Civil  War  heroes,  and  on  the  battleship  Maine,  a 
Holman  went,  by  the  way  of  his  duty,  to  death.  William  Howard  Taft,  President 
of  the  United  States,  is  a  descendant  in  the  seventh  generation  from  Solaman 
Holman,  through  Colonel  Jonathan  Holman.  of  the  third  generation,  a  famous 
hero  of  the  Revolution.  The  ut)rk  is  a  notable  addition  to  the  genealogies  issued 
the  past  year.    The  illustrations  are  unusually  large  and  well  printed.

of  History  and  Genealogy 

Vol.  II  February,    1910  No.  3 


By  Orra  Eugene  Monxette,  of  Los  Angeles,  California. 

Historians,  with  the  aid  of  skillful  genealogists,  are  rapidly  at- 
taining to  a  true  appreciation  of  the  interesting  and  important  place 
in  the  New  World  immigration,  occupied  by  the  French  Huguenot 
refugees,  particularly  during  the  last  half  of  the  seventeenth  cen- 
tury and  early  in  the  succeeding  one.  Truthful  history  can  no  longer 
be  "vrritten  of  America  and  her  people  without  positive  emphasis  being 
laid  upon  this  element  of  the  pioneer  and  colonist  movement.  Fur- 
thermore no  just  and  commensurate  measurement  can  be  made  of 
the  correct  American  man-type  of  all  the  English  speaking  nation- 
alities with  his  multiplied  energies  and  his  incomparable  achieve- 
ments, unless  the  strain  of  blood  flowing  in  his  veins,  inherited  from 
the  French  Protestant  exile,  who  gave  his  great  impress  and  in- 
fluence, along  with  the  Puritan,  Pilgrim,  Dutch  and  German,  receive 
in  its  existence  and  character,  the  elaboration  and  due  proportions 
required  in  any  honest  historical  examination.  Therefore,  a  note- 
worthy and  merited  tribute  must  ever  be  given  to  the  singers  of  Ma- 
rot's  Psalms,  the  pupils  of  Theodore  B^za,  the  disciples  of  John  Cal- 
vin, and  the  heroic  followers  of  Admiral  Coligny  and  Henry  of 
Navarre.  Then,  too,  the  same  follows  as  truly,  the  just  tribute  to 
their  American  descendants. 

Among  the  Huguenot  emigrants  from  France  and  settlers  in 
the  New  World  was  Poncet^  Stelle,  known  in  the  records  as  "  Sieur 
des  Lori^res."     None  more  representative,  none  more  exemplifying

the  Protestant  virtues,  none  more  honorable  and  none  more  noble 
than  he,  came  to  fuse  and  commingle  his  blood,  character  and  attain- 
ments in  the  purifying  melting  pot  of  a  new  cinlization.  In  honor  " 
of  him  and  for  a  record  of  a  part  of  his  descendants  is  this  written. 
"  Stelle"  is  clearly  and  undeniably  a  French  patronymic.  It 
is  very  early  found  in  French  records  and  chronicles  and  exists  in  all 
parts  of  France  to-day.  Several  times  does  it  appear  in  the  printed 
publications  of  the  Huguenot  Society  of  London  and  the  similar  so- 
ciety of  America,  speciaUy  devoted  to  the  records  of  French  Prot- 
estant churches  in  London  and  elsewhere,  which  were  established 
and  maintained  by  the  refugees.  Very  frequently  it  is  written 
"  Stil,"  "  Still "  or  "  Stille,"  and  as  the  latter  forms  are  common 
in  New  Jersey  records,  this  may  furnish  a  clue  to  the  origin  or  first 
form  of  the  name.  In  "  Les  Combattants  Francaise  De  La  Guerre 
Americaine,"  it  is  interesting  to  find  records  of  French  soldiers  of 
the  same  name,  who  sensed  in  the  American  Revolution.  Unfortu- 
nately, no  ancestral  connections  of  either  Poncet  Stelle  or  his  wife, 
nor  the  definite  places  of  their  birtlis  in  France  have  been  discov- 
ered. What  the  designation  "  Sieur  des  Lorieres,"  really  means  is 
uncertain,  unless  a  "  Nobleman  "  of  the  Huguenot  Town  of  "  Lor- 
ieres "  or  "  Lauriere,"  which  is  quite  probable.  The  latter  place  is 
now  a  town  of  about  1500  people  in  the  Province  of  Haute-Vienne, 
23  miles  N.  E.  of  Limoges  and  S.  E.  of  Gueret,  both  within  the  outer 
borders  of  ancient  Poitou,  Limousin  and  Marche,  within  which  were 
famous  Huguenot  citadels  and  strongholds  and  from  which  many 
thousand  emigrated  to  England  and  America. 

Poncet^  Stelle  was  bom  probably  in  or  about  1650  at  Lorieres, 
France.  Before  1680  he  fled  from  France  to  Holland,  being  then 
of  the  Catholic  faith  or  a  recent  convert  to  Protestantism.  Thence, 
he  went  to  St.  Christopher  in  the  Antilles. 

Prof.  Charles  W.  Baird,  in  his  history  of  the  Huguenot  Emi- 
gration to  America   (Vol.  I,  page  206),  states: 

"In  some  of  the  French  Islands,  there  were  Huguenot  congre- 
gations, duly  organized,  though  without  *  temples '  or  houses  of 
worship.  The  governor  and  council  of  ^lassachusetts  received  cer- 
tificates in  1680  from  '  The  French  Protestant  Church  at  St.  Chris- 
topher's,' attesting  the  characters  of  two  of  its  members." 

Also,  in  a  foot-note: 

"  Certificates  from  the  French  Protestant  Church  att  St.  Chris- 
topher's on  the  behalfe  of  Mr.  Poncet  Stell  called  the  Larier  and 

r"x'i.' r:/.K  Y.orr 



Frances  Ginchard,  two  French  G^nttemcn,  that  they  have  renounced 
the  Romish  Religion  in  which  they  were  born  and  bred,  and  have 
embraced  the  true  faith  and  Protestant  Reb'gion." — (Orders,  War- 
rants, etc.,  XXXII.,  p.  16;  in  Office  of  Secretary  of  State,  Albany, 
N.  Y.)  "As  these  men  had  in  1680  been  for  some  time  residents 
here,  the  date  of  the  certificates  may  have  been  earlier  by  several 

^  From  St.  Christopher,  Poncet^  Stelle  came  to  Staten  Island 
(Richmond  county),  then  to  New  York,  in  1680.  About  1660  a 
colony  of  Huguenots  had  located  on  the  southeast  side  of  Staten 
Island  and  were  ministered  to  occasionally  by  the  pastor  of  the 
French  Protestant  church  in  the  present  city  of  New  York.  About 
the  same  time  that  several  Huguenot  families  removed  from  Staten 
Island  and  settled  in  the  Hackeusack  Valley  in  1678,  others  of  their 
co-religionists  moved  to  New  York  City,  and  among  them  "  Sieur 
Poncet  Stelle  des  Lorieres,"  as  he  is  best  known  in  public  print. 

He  was  the  sole  progenitor  of  this  family  name  in  the  United 
States,  unless  others  of  this  same  hneage  emigrated  to  this  country 
under  a  different  name.  For  example,  his  sister,  Catherine,  was 
known  by  the  name  of  the  town  she  came  from  in  France,  viz.,  ''  Cath- 
erine de  Loriere,"  though  she  signed  herself  "  Catherin  Stelle," 

In  the  list  of  baptisms  performed  during  the  early  days  of  this 
French  Church  in  New  York  City  are  the  names  of  the  children  of 
Poncet  Stelle,  all  of  whom  were  born  after  1680  and  not  later  than 
1695:  Benjamin,  bom  1683;  Gabriel,  bora  16a5;  Ambrose,  born 
1687 ;  Madelain,  bom  1689;  Isaac,  born  1690;  John,  bom  1693,  and 
possibly  Eugene,  the  last.* 

Two  or  three  of  the  above  baptismal  records  are  re-produced 
here,  because  of  unique  and  exceptional  interest: 

"  Le  Dimanche  septies  me  Jour  dapuril  mil  six  cent  quatre 
vingt  neuf,  Madelaine  fille  de  poncet  stelle  sieur  des  Loricrs  et  de

•  The  most  important  compilation  on  the  StelJe  Family  is  terse  but  quite 
valuable  in  "  History  of  the  Founding  of  Piscataway,  in  1666,  with  Outline 
Sketches  of  the  Pioneers.  Prepared  for  the  Bi-C^ntennial  of  the  Piscataway

Again,  upon  the  same  subject  of  baptism,  Prof.  Baird  (Supra, 
in  same  work,  Vol.  II.,  page  2T,  foot-note)  refers  to  Marc.  Bois- 
belleau,  pastor  at  Marennes,  IGSS-lGSi,  refugee  minister  at  Am- 
sterdam, 1688,  and  to  Jean  Boisbelleau,  who  obtained  denization  in 
New  York,  September  2,  1685:  "The  latter  was  sponsor  at  the 
baptism  of  a  child  of  Poncet  Stelle,  sieur  des  Lorieres,  April  7,  1689." 

Poncet^  Stelle  married  in  1682  in  New  York,  Eugenie  Leger- 
eau, also  a  Huguenot.  Shortly  prior  to  or  about  1693,  the  family 
moved  to  New  Jersey  and  settled  in  ^lonmouth  County,  there  to 
perpetuate  an  honored  name  and  to  become  the  ancestors  of  a  noted 
posterity.  Here  the  records  interchange  his  name  and  "  Pontus," 
"  Poncet,"  "  Pounsetti,"  and  "  Pontius,"  by  the  last  of  which  he 
is  known  among  his  descendants,  variously  appear.  In  1693,  as 
"  Pounsett  Stelle,"  he  was  licensed  to  keep  a  public  inn.  This  is  a 
very  interesting  document.* 

Unfortunately  the  tavern  license  of  "  Pounsett  Stelle "  had 
been  mislaid  in  the  office  of  the  Secretary  of  State  at  Trenton,  New 
Jersey,  and  cannot,  now,  be  reproduced  here  as  was  the  original  in- 
tention. However  they  were  all  of  the  same  character,  and  offer  so 
much  of  historical  peculiarity,  that  a  similar  one  granted  a  few 
years  previous  to  Capt.  Benjamin'  Hull  (see  post),  who  was  the 

t  Taken  from  "  Collections  of  the  Huguenot  Society  of  America,"  Vol.  1. 
(New  York,  1886).

grandfather  of  Judge  Joseph^  Hull,  who  married  Susannah^  SUlle, 
granddaughter  of  Poncet  S telle,  is  quoted  here,  as  follows :

He  died  in  or  after  1735,  and,  while  intestate,  an  administra-

2.  When  the  Stelle  Family  moved  to  Monmouth  County,  New 
Jersey,  this  was  to  be  the  favored  home  of  all  but  one  son,  Benja- 
min^ Stelle,  who  entered  the  Baptist  ministry  and  sometime  about 
1700  moved  to  the  banks  of  the  Raritan  River,  in  Middlesex  County, 
later  to  become  the  pastor  of  the  church  there.  This  was  the  set- 
tlement or  town  of  Piscataway,  of  which  the  following  account,  taken 
in  part  from  an  early  history,  is  worth  repetition :  * 

"  Name  of  the  Town. — Piscataqua  is  an  Indian  name  of  one 
of  the  tribes  in  the  State  of  Maine,  and  also  a  river  called  the  Pis- 
cataqua River,  on  the  boundary  line  of  Maine  and  New  Hampshire. 
It  is  recorded  that  Hugh  Dunn,  Hopewell  Hull,  John  Martin,  Charles 
Oilman,  Robert  Dennis,  John  Smith,  John  Gilman  and  Benjamin 
Hull,  who  came  from  Piscataqua,  New  England,  were  granted,  De- 
cember 18th,  1666,  and  May  30th,  1668,  the  right  as  Associates 
and  they  conferred  upon  the  to^vnship  the  name  of  the  place  whence 
they  came,  it  being  known  as  Piscataqua  for  some  time  after  the 
settlement,  but  now  commonly  known  as  Piscataway." 

The  same  authority,  page  840,  from  which  the  foregoing  was 
taken,  states,  referring  to  the  settlement  of  Raritan  Township,  Mid- 
dlesex County: 

"  The  Stelle  Family,  whose  progenitor  in  this  country  was  one 
Pontius  Stelle,  a  Huguenot,  bom  in  France,  and  emigrated  to  Staten

ton,  situated  on  the  Penn.  Railroad,  is  named  after  them.  The  Rev. 
Benjamin  Stelle,  a  distinguished  Baptist  minister  at  an  early  day, 
was  the  elder  son  of  Pontius  Stelle,  and  was  born  in  New  York  in 
the  year  1683  and  ordained  a  pastor  of  the  Piscataway  Stelton 
Baptist  Church  about  the  year  1739." 

Still  another  authority  contains  the  following  short  but  note- 
worthy testimonial  to  his  career  and  character.  This  has  special 
reference  to  his  service  as  pastor  of  the  Piscataway  Baptist  Church:  * 

"  The  successor  of  Mr.  Drake  (Rev.  John  Drake)  was  Benja- 
min Stelle,  of  French  parentage,  but  bom  in  Xew  York-—'  a  popu- 
lar preacher  and  upright  magistrate.'  He  continued  in  charge  of 
the  congregation  (Baptist)  until  his  death  in  January-,  1759,  in  his 
76th  year,  having  been  assisted  in  his  ministerial  labors  for  several 
years  by  his  son,  Isaac  Stelle,  who  continued  to  officiate  for  nearly 
twenty-three  years  after  the  death  of  his  father." 

The  fact  is  striking  that  Rev.  Benjamin  Stelle  was  the  kind  of 
minister  who  is  reared  to  fight  first  and  pray  afterwards,  and  this 
was  the  order  chronologically  of  his  occupations.  For  in  1715  he 
was  enrolled  in  a  "  List  of  the  Militia  Regiment  under  the  Command 
of  coll.  Tho.  Ffarmer,"  for  New  Jersey,  but  credited  to  New 

His  membership  was  in  the  Fourth  Company  of  the  regiment, 
where  his  name  is  printed  as  "  Ben.  Still."  All  the  names  on  the 
rolls  of  the  six  companies  associated  with  his — Hopewell  Hull,  Jona- 
than Drake,  Benjamin  Hull,  Jno.  ^Martin,  Bena  Dunham,  ct  al. — 
were  the  familiar  Piscataway  names,  and  all  were  related  by  blood 
or  marriage.  The  two  Hulls  named  were  sons  of  Piscataway  pio- 
neers of  the  same  names,  and  the  latter  were  brothers  and  the  sons 
of  Rev.  Joseph  Hull,  the  New  England  pioneer  preacher  and  immi- 
grant of  1635  to  Weymouth,  Mass. 

The  first  wife  of  Rev.  Benjamin  Stelle  was  Mercy  Drake,  with- 
out discoverable  present  record  authority  except  a  scrap  of  an  old 
Stelle  geneaology  current  twenty-five  years  ago,  but  undoubtedly

It  has  always  been  claimed  that  she  married  Rev.  Benjamin 
Stelle  in  1708.  As  to  her  ancestry,  the  Piscataway  records  show- 
but  one  Mercy  Drake  to  have  been  eligible  to  marry  in  1708,  and 
that  was  a  daughter  of  George^  Drake.  The  Drake  Family  un- 
■doubtedly  belonged  to  th.e  old  Uncage  of  Sir  Francis,  the  navigator, 
and  were  of  English  ancestry.  Early  settlers  in  New  England  were 
John  of  Windsor  and  Thomas  of  Weymouth.  Contemporary  with 
them  was  Robert^  Drake,  emigrated  from  Colchester,  Essex  County, 
England,  where  he  was  bom  in  1580,  accompanied  by  at  least  two 
sons  and  a  daughter.  He  is  reported  first  in  Exeter,  N.  H.,  in  1643, 
and  the  family,  settled  in  Hampton,  N.  H.,  where  he  died  January 
14,  1668.t  .t  (-,:.-  ^     .  '      ■        ', 

The  writer  accepts  the  conclusion  of  Chambers  and  many 
others  that  Captain  Francis^  Drake  of  Portsmouth,  N.  H.,  and  a 
pioneer  of  Piscataway,  N.  J.,  was  a  "son  of  Robert^  Drake.  Capt. 
Francis^  Drake  appeared  in  Piscataway  in  1667-8,  where  he  died 
about  1687.  In  1675-78  he  was  captain  of  the  military  company 
at  New  Piscataway,  in  which  service  he  earned  his  title  as  "  Cap- 
tain," which  has  been  so  perpetuated.  J

and  contains  a  positive  statement  on  pages  ili,  7-t  and  118,  that  Rev.  Benjamin' 
Stelle  married  Mercy  Drake,  and  as  the  book  is  compiled  from  records  of  the 
Stelle  descendants,  this  must  be  taken  as  authoritative.

George^  Drake  was  bom  in  1650  and  died  in  Piscataway,  X.  J., 
where  his  will  was  probated  November  8,  1709 ;  he  married  Novem- 
ber 13,  1677,  Marv'  Oliver  of  Elizabethtown,  who  was  a  dauo-nter 
of  William^  and  Mary  Oliver  of  that  place.  It  will  be  noted  that 
Marcy  or  ^lercy  and  Mary  are  used  interchangeably.  It  is  further 
significant  that  "  Oliver  "  became  a  Christian  name  among  the  de- 
scendants of  Rev,  Benjamin  Stelle  and  that  the  latter's  daughter, 
Susanna,  was  probably  named  for  her  Aunt  Susannah  Drake,  daugh- 
ter of  George  Drake  and  Mary  Oliver,  etc.  The  Olivers  belonged 
to  the  New  England  family  of  that  name,  coming  from  Massachu- 
setts to  New  Jersey  about  1669. 

The  old  Piscataway  town  records  show  the  following  entries: 
«  Births : 

Stelle,  Susanna,  of  Benjamin  &  ^lercy,  Aug.  3,  1710,

Rachel,  of  Benjamin  &  Mercy,  Dec.  11,  1720." 

Rev.  Benjamin*  Stelle  married  (2)  Lydia  Shotwell,  August  14, 
1752.  There  is  a  claim  that  he  married  (3)  Ruth  Sharp,  and  that 
she  was  the  mother  of  some  of  his  children ;  but  this  cannot  be  sus- 
tained by  his  last  will,  which  is  of  record  at  Trenton,  N.  J.,  and  is 
reproduced  here  in  full:

The  following  is  quoted  from  the  "  History  of  the  First  Bap- 
tist Church  of  Piscataway  "  (See  foot-note  on  previous  page),  rela- 
tive to  Rev.  Benjamin  Stelle: 

"  As  a  pastor  he  had  fed  the  flock  and  welcomed  lambs  to  the 
fold.  Zealous  for  the  triumph  of  truth  and  for  the  glory  of  the 
Master,  he  had  seen  two  colonies  go  out  from  the  Church,  yet  com- 
paratively small  in  numbers,  to  plant  the  standard  of  his  and  their 
Lord  in  other  fields,  and  therein  he  rejoiced.  While  in  his  prime, 
before  *  age  stole  fire  from  his  mind,  and  vigor  from  his  limbs,'  he 
was  regarded  by  his  contemporaries  as  '  a  popular  preacher  '  and  a 
man  without  reproach.  And  although  years  before  his  death  his 
head  became  '  frosted  o'er  with  time '  we  do  not  learn,  either 
through  record  or  tradition,  that  the  Church  grew  weary  of  his 
ministry  and  wished  him  to  vacate  the  field.  On  the  contrary,  they 
clung  to  him  to  the  last,  as  one  justly  entitled  to  their  veneration 
and  love.     His  remains  were  buried  in  the  old  graveyard  at  Pis-

;     -    h    "        .       THE  NEW  GENEALOGY  ^  '".': 

.  .  ■  By  Chaeles  KxowLES  Bolton, 

Librarian  of  the  Boston  Athenneum  and  Treasurer  of  the  New- 
England  Historic  Genealogical  Society 

In  our  many  acti\-ities  it  behooves  us  not  to  forget  that  this 
Society  stands  for  the  study  of  genealogy,-.  We  live  in  a  period  and 
in  a  city  crowded  with  diversified  interests.  If,  therefore,  we  are  to 
be  effective,  we  must  not  forget  to  do  one  thing  well.  This  one 
thing,  I  think  you  will  all  agree,  is  in  our  case  the  proper  study  of 
family  history.  To  make  genealogy  worth  while  it  must  be  re- 
spected of  all  men  and  must  be  allied  with  the  world's  work  in  which 
all  men  are  engaged.  This  is  not  so  difficult  when  we  consider  that 
genealogy  touches  life  in  its  most  momentous  relations. 

In  looking  back  over  our  sixty-five  years  of  successful  effort 
there  comes  to  us  a  feeling  of  satisfaction.  We  see  e\'idences  every- 
where that  our  work  has  been  useful  in  the  community,  yes,  useful 
far  beyond  the  bounds  of  New  England.  You  have  heard,  and  you 
will  hear  again  this  evening,  the  details  of  a  society's  struggle  and 
growth.  We  are  here  to  commemorate  the  self-sacrifice  and  the  de- 
votion of  men  whose  memories  are  dear  to  this  Society.  But  in  com- 
memorating the  past  we,  while  we  linger  here  together,  must  not 
forget  to  lay  sure  foundations  for  a  greater  future. 

I  have  said  that  genealogy  touches  life  in  its  most  momentous 
relations.  Wh}-,  then,  does  not  our  subject  appeal  more  strongly  to 
scholars.'*  "VMiy  is  it  not  more  often  called  a  science.^  I  think  we 
can  answer  this  by  saying  that  genealogy,  as  it  is  customarily 
studied  or  developed,  does  not  closely  ally  itself  with  other  fields  of 
serious  research.  In  this,  genealogy  is  weak.  If  it  is  to  receive 
honor  from  the  historian,  the  anthropologist,  or  the  sociologist,  it 
must  contribute  something  to  the  sciences  into  which  these  men  delve. 
For  every  true  science  does  contribute  to  every  other  true  science. 
Genealogy  has  done  much  to  make  people  happy,  a  little  perhaps 
to  make  people  better.  But  in  so  far  as  it  merely  contributes  to 
vanity  and  self-satisfaction,  it  is  unworthy  to  rank  as  a  science. 

Our  subject  comes  nearest  to  doing  its  duty  worthily  in  its  alii-

ance  with  history.  A  few  family  books  tell  of  political  events  con- 
temporary with  the  lives  depicted,  although  too  often  they  give  much 
space  to  descriptions  of  wars  and  to  the  parts  played  in  them  by  the 
members  of  the  family.  Did  these  soldiers  never  have  political  views? 
Were  their  lives  never  influenced  by  current  events,  by  an  inflated 
currency-,  a  shortage  in  the  bread  supply,  a  scarcity  of  maid  sen*- 
ants,  or  if  these  events  are  not  enough,  by  the  acts,  outrageous  or 
otherwise,  of  the  governor  of  a  colony  or  of  a  king  across  the  water? 
Does  our  genealogist  never  say  that  in  such  a  year  Thomson's  Sea- 
sons or  Addison's  Spectator  first  was  discussed  at  the  ^-illage  lyceum 
or  seN\-ing  circle,  and  that  his  family  led  in  the  discussion?  A  large 
library  frequently  receives  books  and  newspapers  of  early  date  wliich 
bear  familiar  names  written  on  the  fly  leaf  or  margin.  Our  ances- 
tors, therefore,  did  have  their  books  and  papers.  Does  a  genealogy 
mention  what  books  long-ago  members  of  the  family  o\vned,  or  read 
as  they  sat  about  the  hearth  in  the  fitful  light  of  evening?  Here 
are  subjects  for  research:  "Titles  of  early  books  and  by  whom 
■owned ;"  "  Titles  of  early  newspapers  and  their  subscribers,"  Shall 
we  not  some  day  find  a  great-great-grandson  who  will  take  more 
pride  in  the  fact  that  his  log-cabin  ancestor  owned  a  copy  of  Para- 
dise Lost  than  that  he  fought  at  Louisburg? 

It  would  be  of  value  to  the  student  if  he  could  find  in  a  gene- 
alogy much  about  early  customs  and  methods  of  work.  Farming 
out  the  paupers,  paying  the  minister  in  produce,  co-operation  in 
building  and  reaping,  the  work  of  the  middle  man  in  buying  and 
selling  cattle — these  are  subjects  on  which  family  papers  throw  light. 
To  the  student  of  economics  they  are  of  value.  If  he  finds  his  facts 
summarized  in  a  family  history  and  is  not  forced  to  search  for  them 
himself,  genealogical  study  has  become  the  handmaid  of  economics, 
and  is  a  science. 

In  very  few  of  our  volumes  have  I  seen  any  statement  in  regard 
to  the  domestic  life  of  the  people  who  are  recorded  in  the  family  book. 
The  average  reader  to-day  does  not  stop  to  think  that  Jeremiah  and 
Samantha,  Seaborn  and  Mindwell  settled  dovi-n  to  married  life  with 
corn-meal  instead  of  white  flour,  pork  instead  of  beef,  cider  instead 
of  coffee,  and  the  all-useful  knife  instead  of  a  fork.     Does  a  gene-

we  are  taking  advantage  of  the  author's  permission  to  reprint  it,  although 
it  is  oar  general  policy  to  use  nothing  that  has  previously  been  published.

alogy  mention  under  the  proper  generation  the  coming  into  use  of 
white  sugar,  the  introducton  of  the  Irish  potato,  the  stove  and  the 
carriage,  or  the  craze  for  the  growing  of  flax  and  the  founding  of 
the  Boston  spinning  school?  These  events  influenced  the  Uves  of 
our  ancestors.  In  short,  are  we  genealogists  writing  the  lives  of 
people  or  are  we  copying  records? 

At  a  certain  point  in  town  records  we  find  families  naming  their 
children  Horatio  or  Horatio  Nelson,  and  at  another  time  George  or 
Lafayette  or  Wellington.  I  wonder  if  any  one  has  made  a  study  of 
events  as  shadowed  in  the  naming  of  children.  Tliis  would  ally 
genealogy  with  history.  Perhaps  it  would  show,  also,  that  some 
among  the  old  Puritans  had  their  heroes  of  renown. 

Genealogy  again  owes  a  debt  to  anthropology  and  to  sociology. 
What  is  the  eff'ect  of  environment  on  life?  It  is  said  that  the  second 
generation  on  American  soil  suffered  from  the  struggle  to  subsist. 
That  is,  it  was  weaker  and  less  well  educated.  The  historian  of  a 
famous  New  England  stock  wrote  that  the  men  of  this  second  gener- 
ation, living  in  hardship  and  privation,  all  died  early  from  the  exces- 
sive use  of  alcohohc  liquor.  That  author  at  least  was  frank  in  his 
desire  to  picture  the  life  of  his  ancestors.  But  most  of  our  family 
histories  expect  us  to  assume  that  we  are  reading  the  lives  of  the 

Speaking  of  saints  reminds  me  of  the  religious  life  of  long  ago 
when  men  were  fined  in  court  for  absence  from  divine  service.  The 
people  drove  ten  miles  and  remained  all  day.  The  horse-sheds  were 
filled  and  the  pews  were  crowded.  Country  life  held  young  as  well 
as  old.  How  is  it  now?  The  horse-sheds  are  torn  down  and  the  pews 
are  empty.  Country  life  offers  delight  only  to  the  city  man  with 
his  Sunday  paper  and  his  automobile.  Let  the  genealogist  study 
his  facts  candidly,  that  he  may  decide  what  he  thinks  about  the 
merits  of  the  old  days  as  compared  with  ours  in  their  influence  upon 
the  life  of  the  country. 

But  I  must  hurry  on.  The  great  contribution  which  we  can 
make  to  science  is  along  the  line  of  heredity.  Where  so  surely  may 
the  student  expect  to  find  hi«  basic  facts  as  in  the  family  history? 
And  yet  the  biographical  dictionary  is  almost  his  sole  reliance,  al- 
though this  source  gives  him  a  picked  class  only  on  which  to  base  his 
conclusions.  If  he  had  half  a  dozen  scientifically  prepared  geneal- 
ogies, describing  old  stock,  what  a  mine  of  information  would  be 
his!     One  good  family,  the  Jonathan  Edwards  line,  and  several  of

a  criminal  bent,  have  been  described  in  books,  but  not  by  a  family 
historian.  In  order  that  we  may  write  a  pleasant  genealoo-v  are 
we  to  omit  all  that  might  aid  the  student  of  lieredity?  If  your 
family  is  composed  of  saints,  add  to  the  study  of  saints  by  writing 
a  scientific  genealogy  of  them.  If  it  is  not,  spare  your  parents,  if 
you  must  be  filial  to  the  point  of  canonizing  them,  but  do  not  can- 
onize the  whole  family. 

In  the  study  of  factors  which  go  to  make  up  environment  there 
is  comfort  in  the  conclusion  reached  by  Mendel,  the  great  Austrian 
monk  whose  researches  are  now  the  only  sure  foundations  which  we 
have  for  the  study  of  heredity.  His  disciple  Batcson  says  that 
"  whereas  our  experience  of  what  constitutes  the  extremes  of  unfit- 
ness is  fairly  reliable  and  definite,  so  that  society  may  work  to  elim- 
inate the  unfit  strains,"  any  attempt  to  distinguish  certain  strains 
as  superior  and  to  give  special  encouragement  to  them  would  be  un- 
safe, since  we  have  as  yet  so  little  to  guide  us  in  estimating  the  qual- 
ities for  which  society  has  or  may  have  a  use.  So  elusive  is  the 
origin  of  what  we  call  genius  ! 

Few  books  of  the  kind  we  have  under  review  speak  much  of 
physical  inheritances.  At  every  point  I  find  that  scientists  differ  as 
to  the  significance  of  the  facts  thus  far  made  available,  perhaps 
because  so  little  evidence  is  to  be  had.  Do  you  find  long  lines  of 
descent  bearing  light  hair  and  blue  eyes,  with  other  lines  of  dark  eyes 
and  hair?  In  England  the  upper  classes  tend  to  light  hair  and  eyes. 
Does  it  follow  that  as  stock  improves  through  several  generations 
the  color  of  hair  and  eyes  tends  to  lighten.'*  I  fear  no  family  history 
can  tell  us.  Do  certain  diseases  run  in  certain  lines?  The  study  of 
these  presents  a  curious  problem,  since  doctors  of  old  had  general 
expressions  for  troubles  which  we  differentiate  now  by  long  Latin 
names.  Is  it  not  for  us  to  furnish  much  of  the  material  for  which 
science  calls  in  the  further  study  of  these  problems? 

In  Bateson's  work  on  Mendel's  Principles  of  Heredity,  pub- 
lished at  Cambridge,  England,  this  year,  you  will  find  a  series  of 
questions  to  be  answered  by  a  study  of  families.  A  man  who  is  color- 
blind has,  we  will  say,  a  normal  sister  who  marries.  It  is  said  to  be 
an  even  chance  whether  any  of  her  children  will  be  color-blind  at  all; 
but  if  they  are,  then  the  sons  will  be  color-blind  and  normal  in  equal 
numbers,  and  her  daughters  will  all  be  normal.  Again,  a  color-blind 
man  marries  a  normal  woman  and  the  children  will  show  no  trace  of 
the  defect.    But  if  we  reverse  the  conditions,  and  the  man  be  normal

and  the  wife  color-blind,  the  sons  will  all  be  color-blind  and  the 
daughters,  while  all  normal,  will  be  capable  of  transmitting  color- 
bhndncss  to  the  next  generation.  When  scientists  are  enunciating 
such  theories  is  it  not  for  us  to  apply  them,  to  reaffirm  what  proves 
to  be  truth  and  to  put  a  stop  to  error?  The  law  of  heredity  laid 
-down  by  Galton  and  partially  confirmed  by  obser\'ation  should  in- 
terest every  genealogist.  He  says  that  half  of  the  sum  of  our  in- 
heritances is  from  our  parents  and  one-fourth  from  our  grand- 
parents. Nevertheless,  slight  as  the  thread  of  descent  becomes  back 
of  one's  grandparents,  a  woolly  head  or  a  deformed  hand  may  re- 
appear in  each  generation  for  two  centuries.  This  being  true,  we 
maj^  with  equal  hope  of  success  look  for  the  persistence  of  a  valu- 
able inheritance  through  many  generations.  I  have  always  felt  that 
the  Wolcott  family,  with  its  major-generals,  its  signer  of  the  Dec- 
laration of  Independence,  its  senators,  and  its  governor  in  each  gen- 
eration, owes  its  success  to  one  ancestral  girl,  Martha  Pitkin,  whose 
merits  were  so  evident  that  her  possible  departure  out  of  the  Colony 
became,  it  is  said,  a  matter  of  general  concern. 

This  transmission  of  habits  and  mental  endowments  must  prove 
of  interest  to  every  one  of  us.  The  Puritan  is  called  sober-minded 
and  hardy,  the  Scotchman  witty  and  thrifty,  the  Irish  emigrant 
adaptable  and  ambitious.  These  and  other  conceptions  of  race  pe- 
culiarity seem  sure.  What,  then,  of  the  inheritance  of  the  individ- 
ual? It  seems  that  the  average  family  in  England  consists  of  about 
five  children,  although  some  statistics  put  the  number  as  high  as 
six.  In  families  where  there  is  abnormal  ability  the  average  number 
of  children  rises  from  six  to  seven.  The  same  tendency  to  raise  the 
average  is  observable  in  criminal  stock  also,  showing  that  genius 
and  degeneracy  appear  to  be  allied  and  that  size  of  family  may  be 
significant.  Has  any  genealogist  ever  found  the  average  size  of 
family  in  his  book  and  then  exaniined  those  children  where  the  fam- 
ily group  exceeds  the  normal  to  see  whether  the  group  tendency  is 
towards  genius  or  degeneracy? 

Again,  the  oldest  child  has  a  much  greater  likelihood  of  a  dis- 
tinguished career  than  his  brothers  and  sisters.  Next  to  him  in  im- 
portance comes  the  youngest  child.  Is  this  theory,  which  is  deduced 
from  lives  in  the  great  English  Dictionary  of  National  Biography, 
true  in  America?  Yet  again,  the  father  and  mother  are  by 
some  said  to  grow  more  alike  in  facial  expression  as  they  mature. 
This  means  approximation  to  a  family  type,  tending,  it  is  said, 

I'S    'i  tf;  '  ■     V-j    O  ' 



ivi  THE  NEW  GENEALOGY  161 

toward  the  male  characteristics.  If  so,  should  not  the  younger  chil- 
dren, who  are  born  of  parents  of  converging  type,  carry  on  the 
family  face  more  accurately  than  the  older  children?  In  other 
•words,  a  composite  of  the  faces  of  children  bom  when  their  parents 
are  mature  will  give  the  face  that  goes  with  the  name.  If  this  is 
true,  we  do  not  inherit  equally  from  all  the  16,000,000  ancestors  of 
•the  Conquest  x>eriod  (presuming  there  were  so  many),  and  the  fam- 
ily type  like  the  race  type  is  real  and  becomes  of  interest. 

There  are  other  interesting  phases  of  genealogy.  It  is  hardly 
■customary  to  study  closely  the  romantic  side  of  marriage  to  ascer- 
tain evidence  of  social  standing  and  family  advance  or  decline.  In 
the  middle  period  of  immigration  where  the  foreign-born  resident 
was  so  unusual  that  he  had  none  of  his  kind  in  the  neighborhood,  mar- 
riage with  a  Yankee  girl  gave  indication  of  the  decline  in  the  girl's 
family.  Perhaps  we  may  say  to-day  that  she  who  marries  a  Portu- 
guese or  French  Canadian  emigrant  is  not  of  just  the  social  station 
claimed  for  a  farmer  whose  family  have  occupied  the  old  mansion 
for  several  generations.  Permanence  of  domicile,  and  to  some  ex- 
tent the  transmission  of  a  trade  from  father  to  son,  as  President 
Eliot  has  pointed  out,  lead  to  a  superior  stock.  And  in  confinnation 
of  this  we  find  that  there  is  no  lack  of  family  pride  in  the  make-up 
of  the  prosperous  farmer. 

Statistics  seem  to  indicate  that  abihty  is  democratic.  It  goes 
to  the  man  who  uses  his  hands  ahnost  as  often  as  to  the  lawyer  to 
bestow  it  laurels;  oftener  indeed  to  the  farm  than  to  the  anny  or  to 
the  medical  school.  The  two  great  sources  of  ability,  says  Have- 
lock  Ellis,  have  been  the  church  and  trade.  Wliat  changes  will  our 
new  environment  bring  forth?  The  church  no  longer  seems  to  dom- 
inate the  town,  and  trade,  once  the  cherished  vocation  of  the  proud 
squire's  younger  son,  is  now  less  admired.  Are  the  law  and  medicine 
to  have  their  day  in  nurturing  the  world's  leaders?  We  who  are 
here  this  evening  have  a  right  to  be  interested  in  the  distribution  and 
inheritance  of  ability,  for  John  Winthrop's  company,  with  many 
others  of  our  early  ancestors,  come  from  Norfolk  and  Suffolk,  the 
east-county  land  of  England,  which  has  produced  more  great  men 
than  any  other  part  of  the  British  Isles. 

In  trying  to  set  for  ourselves  a  higher  standard  of  genealogical 
excellence  we  do  not  forget  the  splendid  work  that  has  been  done. 
It  makes  for  accuracy  and  order.  It  makes  for  sound  reasoning. 
It  has  raised  up  in  every  city  and  frontier  town  an  eager  advocate

for  the  preservation  of  records,  so  that  volumes  that  once  lay  neo^ 
lected  are  now  in  good  repair  and  secure  against  fire.  The  old  house 
going  to  decay  receives  a  new  covering  of  shingles  because  a  study 
of  old  records  reveals  its  part  in  history.  Genealogy  brings  back  to 
the  hill  town  the  city  daughter,  reverencing  the  old  surroundings 
and  eager  to  save  memorials  of  her  ancestral  days  from  destruction. 
To  know  of  right  linng  in  our  ancestors  encourages  us  to  higher 
ideals.  To  learn  of  ancestral  weakness  or  disease  prepares  us  to 
work  intelligently  to  overcome  unfortunate  inheritances.  Genealogy 
as  a  science  helps  us,  therefore,  to  help  ourselves.  But  it  must  also 
aid  workers  in  other  fields  of  science  to  help  the  race  to  which  we  all 
belong.  .    ,^ ,_,   '  ,       _  .   ,  ;  ,.^.^      ■ ,,     ,..,,,,   ,,;.-,-;.    .■  ,,

By  Arthur  Wentworth  Hamilton  Eaton,  D.  C.  L. 

From  the  beginning  of  the  strife  in  the  American  colonies,  New 
York,  which  unHke  Massachusetts  was  a  royal  or  crown  colonv, 
naturally  showed  marked  loyalist  sympathies.  It  has  often  been 
sweepingly  asserted  that  all  the  leading  families  of  New  York  were 
Tories,  but  that  this  was  far  from  being  the  case  is  shown  bv  the 
fact  that  some  of  the  most  active  supporters  of  the  revolutionary 
cause,  hke  John  Jay  and  Gouveneur  Morris,  bore  names  as  proud  as 
any  in  the  province ;  and  that  although  the  De  Lanceys,  De  Peysters, 
Philippses,  and  Johnsons,  and  the  greater  part  of  the  local  aristoc- 
racy who  acknowledged  the  leadership  of  these  families,  were  en- 
thusiastic supporters  of  the  crown,  the  Schuylers  and  Livingstons, 
at  least,  were  know  as  equally  enthusiastic  in  the  Whig  cause. 
In  his  general  survey  of  the  Loyalists,  Dr.  George  E.  Ellis,  an 
unbiassed  and  careful  historian,  says:^  "Among  those  most  frank 
and  fearless  in  the  avowal  of  loyalty  and  who  suffered  the  severest 
penalties,  were  men  of  the  noblest  character  and  of  the  highest  posi- 
tion. So,  also,  bearing  the  same  odious  title,  were  men  of  the  most 
despicable  nature,  self-seeking  and  unprincipled,  ready  for  any  act 
of  evil.  And  between  these  were  men  of  every  grade  of  respecta- 
bility and  of  every  shade  of  meanness." 

So  far  as  religion  ruled,  the  Episcopalians  naturally  were  al- 
most entirely  Tory  in  feeling,  and  the  same  was  true  of  a  minority 
of  the  adherents  of  the  Dutch  Reformed  body,  while  the  Presby- 
terians and  people  of  other  dissenting  bodies,  as  a  rule,  were  Whigs. 
In  both  New  York  and  New  England  the  government  officials,  al- 
most without  exception,  ranged  themselves  on  the  side  of  the  crown ; 
while  in  such  seaports  as  Salem  and  Plymouth,  and  in  the  trading 
villages  of  New  York,  including  those  of  Long  Island  and  Staten 
Island,  the  merchants  of  all  sorts  who  did  business  directly  with 
the  mother  country  and  whose  interests  would  necessarily  suffer  by 
any  disturbance  of  the  old  relations,  were  opposed  to  the  Revolution. 
Besides  these  two  classes,  there  were  many  noble-minded  men  of  con-

servative  tendencies,  who  loved  constitutional  order,  hated  anarchy, 
and  believed  that  obedience  to  law  was  the  first  duty  of  honest  citi- 
zens. The  people  of  this  class  were  not  by  any  means  all  so 
bigotedly  conservative  and  so  stupidly  insensible  to  their  rights  as 
colonists  as  to  be  willing  to  endure  whatever  hardships  inefficient  min- 
istries in  the  home  government  might  impose  upon  them,  but  believ- 
ing that  to  presen-e  a  united  empire  was  more  important  than  to 
secure  the  immediate  redress  of  temporary  wrongs,  they  were  willing 
to  bide  their  time  until  the  mother  country  could  be  made  to  see  her 
duty  towards  her  Americans  dependencies.  In  the  New  York  colony 
on  the  Tory  side  was  a  large  proportion  of  the  people,  especially  of 
Westchester  County,  and  of  Long  and  Staten  Islands.  Of  Queen's 
County,  Long  Island,  Jones'  History  of  New  York  says :  "  Nearly  a 
third  of  the  whole  inhabitants  have  since  the  late  peace  and  the  recog- 
nition of  American  independence,  preferred  the  inhospitable  wilds 
of  Nova  Scotia  rather  than  live  in  a  countr}'  governed  by  the  iron 
and  oppressive  hand  of  rebellion,  though  settled,  planted  and  im- 
proved by  their  ancestors,  nearly  a  century   and  a  half  ago." 

From  the  summer  of  1776,  when  the  battle  of  Long  Island  put 
New  York  in  the  hands  of  General  Howe,  for  seven  years  this  city 
was  the  headquarters  of  British  rule  in  America  and  the  site  of  a 
powerful  English  garrison.  Under  the  protection  of  the  army,  ac- 
cordingly, many  of  the  most  influential  citizens  soon  placed  them- 
selves, especially  when  the  act  of  attainder,  passed  by  the  new 
provincial  legislature,  October  22,  1779,  for  the  crime  of  "  adhering 
to  the  enemies  of  the  State,"  proscribed  nearly  sixty  prominent 
persons,  declared  their  estates,  real  and  personal,  confiscated,  and 
proclaimed  that  "  each  and  every  of  them  who  shall  at  any  time 
hereafter  be  found  in  any  part  of  this  State,  shall  be,  and  are  hereby 
adjudged  and  declared  guilty  of  felony,  and  shall  suffer  death  as 
in  cases  of  felony,  without  Benefit  of  Clergy." 

When  the  issue  of  the  war  became  doubtful,  and  later  when 
peace  was  actually  declared,  the  New  York  Tories  saw  that  nothing 
was  left  them  but  to  emigrate.  Thrust  from  all  places  of  power, 
robbed  of  their  property,  the  objects  of  the  fierce  indignation  of 
rabble  citizens,  the  positions  of  many  of  whom  had  always  been 
greatly  inferior  to  their  own,  declared  felons  by  the  new  authorities, 
and  even  threatened  with  death,  there  was  no  alternative  for  them 
but  to  leave  forever  their  old  homes  for  the  mother  land  or  for  new 
colonies  where  Britain's  rule  remained  yet  undisturbed.      In  their  ex-

tremity,  like  their  New  England  brethren,  many  of  these  New  York 
Loyalists  naturally  turned  to  Nova  Scotia  as  the  most  convenient 
place  on  the  eastern  part  of  tlie  continent  in  which  to  replant  them- 

The  new  English  ministry  formed  in  February,  1T82,  recalled  Sir 
Henry  Chnton  from  his  command  of  the  American  forces,  and  in  his 
place  appointed  Sir  Guy  Carleton,  who  arrived  in  New  York  and  took 
command  the  following  April.  In  September  of  the  same  year, 
pro^-isional  articles  of  peace  were  signed  at  Paris  and  then  the 
necessity  for  the  removal  of  the  Loyalists  became  clearly  apparent. 
Sir  Guy  accordingly  began  a  correspondence  with  the  governor  of 
Nova  Scotia  with  reference  to  their  settlement  in  that  province,  and 
the  Loyalists  themselves  appointed  agents  to  whom  they  entrusted 
the  most  important  matters  connected  with  their  proposed  emigration. 
These  agents  were  Lieutenant-Colonel  Benjamin  Thompson  of 
Massachusetts,  better  known  as  Count  Rumford;  Lieutenant-Colonel 
Edward  Winslow,  of  Massachusetts,  who  was  one  of  the  refugees 
who  took  passage  from  Boston  with  Howe's  fleet;  Major  Joshua 
Upham,  of  Brookfield,  Massachusetts,  a  graduate  of  Har^-ard  of 
the  class  of  1763;  the  Rev.  John  Sayre,  who  at  the  beginning  of 
the  war  was  Rector  of  Trinity  Church,  Fairfield,  Connecticut ;  aIiios 
Botsford,  of  Newtown,  Connecticut,  a  graduate  of  Yale,  of  1763 ;  and 
James  Peters  of  New  York.  It  seems  singular  that  of  these  seven 
New  York  agents,  six  should  have  been  New  England  men,  and  only 
one  a  native  New  Yorker. 

The  first  emigration  of  New  York  people  to  Nova  Scotia 
took  place  soon  after  the  signing  of  the  provisional  articles  at 
Paris.  Probably  early  in  September,  the  Lieutenant-Governor  of 
Nova  Scotia,  Sir  Andrew  Snape  Hamond,  received  a  letter  from  Sir 
Guy  Carleton,  in  which  the  latter  announced  that  more  than  six  hun- 
dred persons  wished  to  embark  for  Nova  Scotia  before  winter,  and  a 
much  larger  number  the  next  spring,  but  that  he  could  not  find 
shipping  just  then  for  more  than  three  hundred.  He  recommends 
for  these  intending  emigrants  that  a  grant  of  five  or  six  hundred 
acres  shall  be  given  each  family,  and  three  hundred  acres  apiece 
to  single  men,  and  that  two  thousand  acres  for  a  glebe  and  a 
thousand  acres  for  a  school  shall  be  set  apart  in  each  township,  no 
fees  or  quit-rents,  whatever,  to  be  exacted  for  these  lands.  He  also 
recommends  that  the  "  Refugees  "  be  given  materials  and  the  as- 
sistance of  workmen  for  their  necessary  building.      About  this  time

Sir  Guy  was  waited  on  by  the  Rev.  Dr.  Seabury,  then  of  West- 
chester, and  Col.  Benjamin  Thompson,  of  the  King's  American 
Dragoons,  on  behalf  of  the  Loyalists  desiring  to  go  to  Nova  Scotia. 
The  result  of  the  conference  was  a  promise  from  the  Commander-in- 
Chief  that  they  should  be  provided  with  proper  vessels  to  carry  them 
and  their  horses  and  cattle  as  near  as  possible  to  the  place  in  which 
they  intended  to  settle;  that  besides  food  for  the  voyage,  one  year's 
provisions  or  the  equivalent  in  money  should  be  allowed  them;  that 
warm  clothing  in  proportion  to  the  wants  of  each  family,  and  medi- 
cines, should  be  furnished  them;  that  pairs  of  mill  stones,  iron  work 
for  grist  mills  and  saw  mills,  nails,  spikes,  hoes,  axes,  spades,  shovels, 
plough-irons,  and  such  other  farming  utensils  as  should  appear 
necessary,  and  also  window  glass,  should  be  given  them;  that  tracts 
of  land,  free  from  disputed  titles  and  conveniently  situated,  large 
enough  to  afford  from  three  to  six  hundred  acres  to  each  family, 
to  be  surs'eyed  and  divided  at  public  cost,  should  be  guaranteed; 
that  in  every  township,  "  over  and  above "  two  thousand  acres 
should  be  allowed  for  the  support  of  a  clergy-man  and  one  thou- 
sand acres  for  the  support  of  a  school,  and  that  these  lands 
should  be  inalienable  forever.  Finally,  that  a  sufficient  number  of 
good  muskets  and  cannon,  with  a  proper  quantity  of  ammunition, 
should  be  allowed,  to  enable  the  people  to  defend  themselves  against 
any  hostile  invasion. 

Before  the  middle  of  October,  five  hundred  Loyalists  from  New 
York  had  arrived  at  Annapolis  Royal,  Nova  Scotia,^  bringing  with 
them  at  least  one  member  of  the  committee  appointed  in  New  York 
to  look  after  their  affairs,  a  man  who  founded  one  of  the  leading  New 
Brunswick  families,  Mr.  Amos  Botsford.  The  London  Political 
Magazine  in  1783  says:  "  When  the  Loyal  Refugees  from  the  north- 
ern Provinces  were  informed  of  the  resolution  of  the  House  of  Com- 
mons against  offensive  war  with  the  rebels,  they  instantly  saw  there 
were  no  hopes  left  them  of  regaining  their  ancient  settlements  or  of 
settling  down  again  in  their  native  country.  Most  of  them,  there- 
fore, who  had  been  forward  in  taking  up  arms  and  in  fighting  the 
battles  of  the  mother  country,  finding  themselves  deserted,  began 
to  look  out  for  a  place  of  refuge,  and  Nova  Scotia  being  the  near- 
est place  to  their  old  plantations,  they  determined  on  settling  in  that 
province.  Accordingly,  to  the  number  of  five  hundred,  they  em- 
barked for  Annapolis  Royal:  they  had  arms  and  ammunition,  and 
1  Murdoch's  History  of  Nova  Scotia,  Vol.  3,  says  three  hundred.

one  year's  provisions,  and  were  put  under  the  care  and  convoy  of 
H.  M.  S.  Amphitrite,  of  twenty-four  guns,  Captain  Robert  Briggs. 
This  officer  behaved  to  them  with  great  attention,  humanity,  and 
generosity,  and  saw  them  safely  landed  and  settled  in  the  barracks 
at  Annapolis,  which  the  Loyalists  soon  repaired.  There  were  plenty 
of  wild  fowl  in  the  country,  and  at  that  time  (which  was  last  fall) 
a  goose  sold  for  two  shillings  and  a  turkey  for  two  and  sixpence. 
The  Captain  was  at  two  hundred  pounds  expense  out  of  his  own 
pocket,  in  order  to  render  the  passage  and  arrival  of  the  unfortunate 
Loyalists  in  some  degree  comfortable  to  them." 

Before  Captain  Briggs  sailed  from  Annapolis  the  grateful 
Loyalists  waited  on  him  with  the  following  address : 

"  To  Robert  Briggs,  Esqr.,  Commander  of  H.  M.  S.  Amphitrite. 
The  loyal  refugees  who  have  emigrated  from  New  York  to  settle  in 
Nova  Scotia  beg  your  acceptance  of  their  warmest  thanks  for  the 
kind  and  unremitted  attention  you  have  paid  to  their  preservation 
and  safe  conduct  at  all  times  during  tlieir  passage.  Driven  from 
our  respective  dwellings  for  our  loyalty  to  our  King,  after  en- 
during innumerable  hardships  and  seeking  a  settlement  in  a  land 
unknown  to  us,  our  distresses  were  sensibly  relieved  during  an  un- 
comfortable passage  by  your  humanity,  ever  attentive  to  our  preser- 

Be  pleased  to  accept  of  our  most  grateful  acknowledgments 
so  justly  due  to  you  and  the  officers  under  your  command,  and  be  as- 
sured we  shall  remember  your  kindness  with  the  most  grateful  sensi- 

We  are  with  the  warmest  wishes  for  your  health  and  happiness 
and  a  prosperous  voyage. 

With  the  greatest  respect.  Your  most  obedient  humble  servants, 

In  behalf  of  the  refugees,

father  of  Sir  William  Fenwick  Williams,  the  famous  Hero  of  Kars, 
who  was  bom  at  Annapolis,  probably  in  December,  1799,  and  in 
1866  and  '67  was  governor  of  his  native  province. 

On  the  fourteenth  of  January,  1783,  Amos  Botsford  and  his 
fellow  explorers  wrote  from  Annapolis  to  their  friends  in  New  York, 
describing  the  country.  After  giving  the  most  favorable  account 
of  the  region  from  Annapolis  to  St.  ^Mary's  Bay,  they  say:  "We 
proceeded  to  St.  John's  river,  where  we  arrived  the  latter  end  of 
November,  it  being  too  late  to  pass  in  boats,  and  the  water  not 
being  sufficiently  frozen  to  bear.  In  this  situation  we  left  the  river, 
and  (for  a  straight  course)  steered  by  a  compass  through  the 
woods,  encamping  out  several  nights  in  the  course,  and  went  as  far 
as  the  Oromocto,  about  seventy  miles  up  the  river,  where  there  is 
a  block-house,  a  British  post.  The  St.  John's  is  a  fine  river,  equal 
in  magnitude  to  the  Connecticut  or  Hudson.  At  the  mouth  of  the 
river  is  a  fine  harbour,  accessible  at  all  seasons  of  the  j-ear — never 
frozen  or  obstructed  by  the  ice,  which  breaks  in  passing  over  the 
falls ;  here  stands  Fort  Howe,  two  leagues  north  of  Annapolis  Gut.'* 
"  The  interval  lies  on  the  river,  and  is  a  most  fertile  soil,  annually 
manured  by  the  overflowings  of  the  river,  and  produces  crops  of  all 
kinds  with  little  labour,  and  vegetables  in  the  greatest  perfection. 
The  up-lands  produce  wheat  both  of  the  summer  and  winter  kinds, 
as  well  as  Indian  com.  Some  of  our  people  chuse  Conway  (now 
Digby),  others  give  the  preference  to  St.  John.  Our  people  who 
came  with  us  are  settled  here  for  the  winter;  some  at  the  fort,  some 
in  the  town,  and  others  extend  up  the  Annapolis  river  near  twenty 
miles,  having  made  terms  with  the  inhabitants ; — some  are  doing 
well,  others  are  hving  on  their  provisions ;  their  behaviour  is  as 
orderly  and  regular  as  we  could  expect." 

These  five  hundred  New  York  Loyalists  were  speedily  followed 
by  five  hundred  and  one  refugees  from  the  Carolinas,  who  fled  from 
Charleston  when  that  city  was  evacuated.  In  a  dispatch  to  the 
Right  Hon.  Thomas  Johnston,  the  minister  in  England,  Governor 
Parr  of  Nova  Scotia  says:  "  I  have  the  honor  to  inform  you  that 
with  the  arrival  here  of  the  heavy  ordnance  from  Charleston  in 
South  Carolina,  came  five  hundred  and  one  refugees,  men,  women, 
and  children,  in  conscquencxi  of  directions  from  Sir  Guy  Carleton  to 
Lieutenant-General  Leslie,  who  has  sent  them  to  the  care  of  Major- 
General  Patterson,  commander  of  the  troops  in  this  province,  with

In  January,  17S3,  the  governor  notified  the  English  minister 
of  future  arrivals,  but  it  was  in  the  spring  of  that  year  that  the 
great  emigration  of  New  York  Tories  to  Xova  Scotia  began.  In 
April,  two  separate  fleets  left  for  tlie  Acadian  Province  by  the  Sea. 
The  first,  which  sailed  from  New  York,  April  twenty-sixth,  com- 
prised sixteen  square  rigged  ships  and  several  schooners  and  sloops 
protected  by  two  ships  of  war,  and  carried  four  hundred  and  seventy- 
one  families,  under  command  of  Colonel  Beverly  Robinson,  its  desti- 
nation being  Port  Razoir,  or  Roseway,  afterwards  Shelbume,  near' 
the  south-western  end  of  Nova  Scotia. 

On  the  fourth  of  Maj'  these  people  reached  Port  Roseway  and 
were  met  by  three  sur\-eyors  from  Halifax,  with  whose  aid  they  at 
once  began  to  lay  out  a  city  which  they  had  projected  before  leav- 
ing New  York.^  Their  plan  made  provision  for  five  main  parallel 
streets,  sixty  feet  wide,  to  be  intersected  by  others  at  right  anglts 
each  square  to  contain  sixteen  lots,  sixty  feet  in  width  and  one 
hundred  and  twenty  feet  in  depth.  At  each  end  of  the  town  a 
large  space  was  left  for  a  common,  and  when  the  refugees  came, 
these  reservations  the  engineers  with  the  assistance  of  the  fatigue 
parties  rapidly  cleared,  so  that  tents  could  be  erected  for  the  tem- 
porary shelter  of  the  people.  July  eleventh,  the  town  was  divided 
into  north  and  south,  the  streets  were  named,  and  the  lots  were 
numbered,  every  settler  being  given  fifty  acres  on  each  side  the 
harbor,  and  a  town  and  water  lot  besides. 

The  other  fleet,  which  sailed  from  New  York  on  the  twenty- 
seventh  of  April,  1783,  comprised  twenty  vessels,  on  board  of  which 
were  three  thousand  people,  men,  women,  and  children.  The  names 
of  the  vessels  were:  the  Camel,  Captain  Tinker;  the  Union,  Captain 
Wilson;  the  Aurora,  Captain  Jackson;  the  Hope,  Captain  Peacock; 
the  Otter,  Captain  Bums;  the  Spencer;  the  Emmett,  Captain  Reed; 
the  Thames;  the  Spring,  Captain  Cadish;  the  Bridgercater;  the 
Favorite,  Captain  Ellis;  the  Ann,  Captain  Clark;  the  Commerce, 
Captain  Strong;  the  William;  the  Lord  Tozcnshend,  Captain  Hogg; 
the  Sovereign,  Captain  Stuart;  the  Salhj,  Captain  Bell;  the  Cyrus; 
the  Britain;  and  the  King  George.  The  destination  of  this  fleet 
was  the  River  St.  John,  at  the  mouth  of  which,  a  little  distance 
apart,  stood  the  two  old  forts.  La  Tour,  then  called  Fort  Freder-

ick,  and  the  less  historical  Fort  Howe.  On  the  eighteenth  of  May 
the  vessels  came  to  anchor  in  the  harbor  of  St.  John,  the  Loyalists 
for  the  most  part  landing  at  Lower  Cove,  near  the  old  Sydney 
Market  House. 

The  people  of  the  first  fleet  are  said  to  have  come  to  their 
determination  to  settle  at  Shelbume,  through  advice  given  them  by 
Captain  Gideon  White,  a  native  of  Plymouth,  Massachusetts,  in 
which  place  he  was  born  March  twenty-eighth,  1752.  This  young 
man,  who  was  a  great  grandson  of  Peregrine  White  of  Plymouth, 
and  father  of  the  late  venerable  Rev.  Thomas  Howland  White,  D.  D., 
of  Shelbume,  at  the  outbreak  of  the  war  made  his  escape  from 
Plymouth  to  avoid  being  either  drafted  into  the  American  army  or 
thrown  into  prison,  and  starting  for  Nova  Scotia  on  a  trading 
voyage  visited  various  places  along  the  south  shore  of  the  province. 
At  Barrington  he  was  captured  by  an  American  armed  vessel,  com- 
manded by  a  Captain  Sampson,  and  then  was  carried  back  to 
Plymouth  and  thrown  into  prison,  where  he  found  his  father.  With- 
in a  day  or  two  he  was  taken  out  and  hanged  by  the  waist  to  the 
village  "  liberty  pole,"  but  Captain  Sampson,  hearing  of  the  out- 
rage, landed  with  a  party  of  his  men  and  rescued  the  prisoner  from 
his  uncomfortable,  if  not  dangerous,  position.  In  the  list  of  persons 
who  went  to  Halifax  with  General  Howe's  fleet,  Gideon  White's 
name  is  found,  and  it  is  probable  that  he  returned  with  the  fleet  to 
New  York  and  there  gave  information  regarding  the  Nova  Scotia 
sea-board  to  the  Loyalist  leaders,  who  acting  on  his  advice  finally 
detennined  to  found  a  city  at  Port  Razoir. 

That  St.  John  should  have  been  chosen  by  the  Tories  as  the 
site  of  another  town  is  not  strange,  for  the  broad,  navigable  St. 
John  river,  lined  with  fertile  marshes,  had  long  attracted  traders 
from  New  England,  and  on  both  sides  of  it,  awaiting  settlement,  lay 
an  immense  tract  of  country  as  fertile  as  the  province  of  Nova  Scotia 
itself,  and  even  greater  in  extent. 

The  Port  Roseway  and  St.  John  River  settlers  had  been  pre- 
ceded to  Halifax  by  the  Loyalists  who  came  with  Howe's  fleet, 
or  who,  one  by  one,  as  in  the  case  of  certain  of  the  clergymen  who 
found  refuge  here,  straggled  to  the  Nova  Scotia  shores,  but  the 
great  tide  of  Tory  emigration  was  only  now  beginning  to  set  in. 
June  sixth.  Governor  Parr  informs  the  Secretary  of  State  that  since 
January  fifteenth  upwards  of  seven  thousand  refugees  have  arrived 
in  the  province,  and  these,  he  says,  are  to  be  followed  by  three  thou-

sand  of  the  provincial  forces,  and  by  others  besides.  July  sixth, 
he  writes  that  a  considerable  number  of  Loyalists  had  petitioned  for 
land  in  the  island  of  Cape  Breton,  and  the  governor,  who  had  had 
instructions  to  grant  no  land  in  that  island,  asks  his  ^Majesty's 
pleasure  in  the  matter.  In  a  letter  to  Lord  North,  of  the  thirtieth 
of  September,  Governor  Parr  states  that  from  November,  1782,  to 
the  end  of  July,  1783,  upwards  of  thirteen  thousand  had  arrived  at 
Annapolis,  Halifax,  Port  Roseway,  St.  Jolm  River,  and  Cumberland, 
and  that  since  July,  many  more  had  landed  at  these  places  and  at 
Passamaquoddy,  so  that  the  total  number  in  the  province  then  was 
probably  not  less  than  eighteen  thousand.  He  had  visited  Port 
Roseway  as  soon  as  he  could  after  the  arrival  of  the  settlers  there;, 
and  had  found  upwards  of  five  thousand  persons,  to  which  number 
many  more,  he  expected,  would  soon  be  added. 

In  September  many  vessels  left  New  York  for  Nova  Scotia, 
carrying  in  all  some  eight  thousand  refugees.  One  of  these  was  the 
ship  Martha,  which  had  on  board  a  corps  of  the  Maryland  Loyalists, 
and  a  detachment  of  DeLancey's  2d  Regiment,  in  all  a  hundred 
and  seventy-four  persons.  This  vessel  was  wrecked  on  a  ledge  of 
rocks  between  Cape  Sable  and  the  Tuskets,  and  ninety-nine  perished, 
seventy-five  being  saved  by  fishing  boats  and  carried  to  St.  John, 
where  they  had  intended  settling.  Between  the  end  of  September  and 
the  twenty-first  of  October,  two  thousand  Loyalists  arrived,  and  at 
some  time  in  the  latter  month  what  is  known  as  the  "  Fall  Fleet " 
reached  St.  John,  bringing  twelve  hundred  more.  Others  coming 
in  single  vessels,  before  and  at  the  final  evacuation  of  Ne\v  York, 
which  occurred  November  25,  1783,  it  is  estimated  that  not  less 
than  five  thousand  spent  the  winter  of  1783-84  on  the  site  of  tlie 
city  of  St.  John.  August  thirteenth  of  the  latter  year.  Governor 
Parr  writes  Lord  North  that  grants  for  four  thousand,  eight  hun- 
dred and  eighty-two  families  had  passed  the  great  seal  of  the 
province,  and  that  others  were  preparing  for  a  hundred  and  fifty 
more.  The  number  of  persons  already  located,  he  thinks,  amounts 
to  nearly  thirty  thousand.^  ... 

1  Mr.  Edward  F.  De  Lancey,  the  editor  of  Judge  Thomas  Jones'  History  of 
Hew  York  during  the  Retoluiionary  War,  says  that  he  "  is  satisfied  from  a 
personal  examination  of  the  manuscript  records  in  the  Secretary's  office  at  Hali- 
fax, that  the  emigration  amounted  to  at  least  thirty-five  thousand  men,  women 
and  cliildren;  and  the  Rev.  Dr.  W.  O.  Raymond,  of  St.  John,  N.  B.,  a  diligent 
student  of  the  history  of  New  Brunswick,  states  that  in  his  opinion  the  num- 
ber of  Loyalists  has  been  underestimated,  rather  than  overestimated.

The  whole  number  of  Loyalists  who  left  the  revolting  colonies,        r 
first  and  last,  cannot  have  been  less  than  a  hundred  thousand  souls,  l   c; 
Judge  Jones  thinks  that  Sir  Guy  Carleton  must  have  assisted  that 
many  to  leave  New  York  alone.     Mr.  De  Lancey  says :  "  They  came    >■•     ■ 
to  New  York  to  embark  for  almost  all  parts  of  the  world,  England, 
Scotland,    Ireland,    Canada,    Newfoundland,    Cape    Breton,    Nova 
Scotia,    New    Brunswick,    the    Bermudas,    the    Bahamas,    Florida,     .. 
Jamaica,  and  the  lesser  West  Indies."     The  Loyalists  of  the  South-   u\  ■ 
em  colonies  chiefly  shipped  for  Florida,  the  Bermudas,  the  Bahamas,      .i : 
and  the  West  Indies.     Of  the  Tory  emigrants  to  Upper  Canada,    •  <.! 
which  was  then,  like  Nova  Scotia  and  New  Bruns^s-ick,  almost  wholly     :  v

vessels  were  procured  and  furnished  to  convey  this  first  colony  of 
banished  refugee  Loyalists  to  Upper  Canada;  they  sailed  around  the     '  ; 
Coast  of  New  Brunswick  and  Nova  Scotia,  and  up  the  St.  Lawrence 
to  Sorel,  where  they  arrived  in  October,  1783,  and  where  they  built       »■ 
themselves   huts   or  shanties,  and  wintered.     In  ^lay,   1784,   they 
prosecuted   their  voyage  in   boats,   and  reached   their  destination, 
Cataraqui,  aftenvards  Kingston,  in  July."     Other  bands  of  Loyalists 
made  their  way  to  Canada  by  land,  the  most  common  route  being 
by  Albany. 

]\Iany  of  the  Loyalists  who  had  come  to  Nova  Scotia  were 
so  destitute  that  in  May,  1783,  an  order  for  a  muster  was  issued 
by  Governor  Parr,  so  that  their  needs  might  be  fully  known.  This 
muster  occupied  a  little  over  two  months,  from  May  twentieth  to

Harbour,  St.  John  Island  (now  Prince  Edward  Island)  ;  Windsor, 
Windsor  Road,  and  Sackville.  According  to  this  muster  the  Revo- 
lutionary war  had  brought  into  Nova  Scotia  28,347  persons;  of 
whom  12,383  were  men,  5,486  women,  4,671  children  above  the  age 
of  ten  years;  4,575  children  under  the  age  of  ten  years;  and  1,232 
servants.  Of  these  people,  9,260  are  reported  as  at  River  St.  John, 
7,923  at  Shelbume,  1,830  at  Annapolis  and  vicinity,  1,787  at  Pas- 
samaquoddy,  1,295  at  Digby,  1,053  at  Chedabucto,  856  at  Cum- 
berland and  vicinity,  651  between  Halifax  and  Shelbume,  480  at 
Dartmouth,  and  380  in  the  Island  of  St.  Jolm ;  the  rest  being  scat- 
tered, in  numbers  ranging  from  16  to  324,  through  the  other  places 
mentioned  above.^ 

1  Of  Colonel  Morse's  report,  Mr.  Raymond  writes:  "The  report  of  Lt.-CoL 
Morse  is  in  the  possession  of  J.  \r.  Lawrence  (of  St.  John),  and  I  have  studied 
it.  We  must  bear  in  mind  that  Col,  Morse's  muster  was  made  in  the  summer 
of  1TS4,  and  is  liable  to  be  under  the  mark,  for  two  reasons.  First,  a  consid- 
erable number  of  the  Loyalists  had  already  removed,  owing  to  their  unfavor- 
able impressions  of  the  country,  some  to  Upper  Canada  (see  Ryerson's  Loy- 
alists), some  to  England — these  chiefly  of  the  more  affluent  classes,  while  some 
had  returned  to  the  United  States.  A  second  class,  I  have  no  doubt,  failed 
to  be  enumerated  by  Col.  Morse  owing  to  the  scattered  seltlcments,  estab- 
lished at  isolated  points,  and  to  the  hurried  way  in  which  the  enumer- 
ation was  completed.  Loyalist  settlements  were  made  on  the  St.  John  river  in 
the  summer  of  1783,  at  some  eight  or  more  points,  that  at  Woodstock  being  a 
hundred  and  forty-four  miles  from  the  sea.  Other  settlements  were  made  at 
Passamaquoddy  by  refugees  from  Penobscot  and  elsewhere,  at  various  points  at 
the  head  of  the  Bay  of  Fundy,  along  the  New  Brunswick  shore,  and  at  a  large 
number  of  points  in  Nova  Scotia  and  Cape  Breton.  The  facilities  for  commu- 
nication were  so  poor  at  this  time,  that  the  enumeration  could  scarcely  have  been 
carried  out  with  exactness,  and  I  therefore  think  the  number  returned  by  CoL 
Morse  was  much  too  small."  "  In  addition  to  the  Loyalist  exiles  from  New- 
York  to  Nova  Scotia  during  the  first  ten  months  of  1783,  there  were  arrivab 
at  Halifax  and  Annapolis  from  Boston  and  other  New  England  ports,  amount- 
ing to  probably  at  least  2,000,  of  whom  1,100  came  at  the  time  of  the  evacua- 
tion of  Boston." 

Mr.  Raymond's  judgment  regarding  the  probable  understatement  of  the 
number  of  Loyalists  in  Nova  Scotia  in  Colonel  Morse's  Report  is  no  doubt 
correct.  The  general  style  of  Colonel  Morse's  report  on  Nova  Scotia  shows 
that  he  was  not  a  very  accurate  observer,  and  in  some  degree  weakens  the 
value  of  his  statistics.  Nevertheless,  they  must  be  duly  weighed  by  any  one 
desiring  properly  to  estimate  the  number  of  Loyalists  who  came  to  Nova 
Scotia  at  the  close  of  the  war.  It  seems  likely,  judging  from  other  data,  that 
the  number  at  Halifax,  Shelburne,  and  on  the  St.  John  River,  is  understated, 
for  Colonel  Morse  himself  admits  that  "  a  very  small  proportion  of  the  people 
are  yet  on  their  lands."  A  few  thousands,  therefore,  might  be  added  to  in- 
clude those  overlooked  in  the  muster,  those  who  had  come  early  to  Nova  Scotia 
and  had  gone  thence  to  England,  Upper  Canada,  Newfoundland,  or  back  to  the 
United  States,  and  the   few  Loyalists  that  might  not  put  in  a  claim  for  "  the

How  large  a  proportion  of  the  Loyalist  emigrants  to  Xova 
Scotia  consisted  of  officers  and  men  of  the  various  provincial  regi- 
ments has  probably  never  been  estimated.  As  early  as  May,  17S2, 
Baron  de  Seitz  was  at  Halifax  with  a  Hessian  regiment,  which  prob- 
ably received  land  in  the  province.  In  March,  1783,  the  command- 
ing officers  of  fourteen  of  the  thirty-one  provincial  regiments  named 
by  Sabine,^  petitioned  for  grants  of  land  in  the  colonies  for  their 
officers  and  men,  and  asked  also  for  pension  and  half  pay.-  In 
September  of  the  same  year,  the  ship  Martha,  which  was  wrecked 
between  Cape  Sable  and  Tusket,  started  for  St.  John  with  a  corps 
of  the  Maryland  Loyalists  and  a  detachment  of  De  Lancey's  Second 
Battalion.  General  Oliver  De  Lancey's  Brigade  comprised  three 
battalions,  each  five  hundred  strong,  the  first  and  second^  of  which 
consisted  in  part  of  New  York  men,  with  probably  a  strong  contin- 
gent from  the  Tory  towns  of  Connecticut,  such  as  Stamford,  Green- 
wich, Norwalk,  and  Fairfield.  The  third  battalion  was  drawn  en- 
tirely from  Queen's  County,  Long  Island.  The  anger  of  the  Ameri- 
cans was  naturally  fierce  against  De  Lancey's  whole  brigade,  which, 
in  a  petition  against  the  men  being  allowed  to  return  to  their 
homes  in  Stamford  or  Greenwich,  was  designated  as,  that  "  most 
infamous  banditti  known  as  De  Lancey's  corps."  At  the  close  of 
the  war  this  brigade  was  disbanded  in  Nova  Scotia.  The  third 
battalion,  commanded  by  Captain  Ludlow,  arrived  at  St.  John  in 
October,  1783;  and  it  is  probable  that  the  second  battalion  also 
spent  the  next  winter  in  St.  John,  for  Captain  Jacob  Smith,  Ser- 
geant Thomas  Fowler,  Corporal  Richard  Rogers,  and  others  of  this 
battalion  drew  adjoining  city  lots  on  the  south  side  of  Britain  Street, 
near  Wentworth  Street*  in  the  New  Brunswick  town.  The  following 
year  (October  15,  1784),  a  grant  was  passed  under  the  great  seal 
of  the  province  of  Nova  Scotia,  of  lands  to  a  hundred  and  twenty  men 

Royal  bounty  of  provisions."  Having  made  a  liberal  allowance  for  all  these, 
however,  it  is  hard  to  believe,  if  Colonel  Morse's  muster  be  in  any  degree  ao 
curate,  that  the  number  of  loyalists  was  much  more  than  thirty  thousand  in 
Nova  Scotia  and  New  Brunswick.  It  is  possible,  however,  that  to  this  number 
two  or  three  thousand  more  may  be  added  and  the  limits  of  accurate  statement 
not  be  transgressed.

of  this  battalion,  on  the  Upper  St.  John.^  As  a  rule  each  private 
received  a  hundred  acres,  each  non-conmiissioned  officer  two  hundred 
acres ;  and  each  commissioned  officer  five  hundred  and  fifty  acres. 
The  whole  grant  comprised  twenty-four  thousand,  one  hundred  and 
fifty  acres,  with  the  usual  allowance  of  ten  per  cent,  for  roads.  The 
first  settlement  at  Woodstock,  New  Brunswick,  was  made  by  mem- 
bers of  De  Lancey's  corps,  either  in  the  summer  of  1783,  or  more 
probably  in  the  following  spring. 

That  in  the  cases  of  these  soldiers  there  was  more  delay  in  the 
granting  of  lands,  is  shown  by  the  fact  that  Colonel  Edward  Wins- 
low,  Jr.,  Muster-Mastcr-General  of  the  Loyalist  forces  employed  un- 
der the  crown,  and  a  member  of  the  first  Council  of  New  Bnmswick, 
wrote  to  his  friend  Ward  Chipman  :  "  I  saw  all  these  provincials,  whom 
we  have  so  frequently  mustered,  landing  in  this  inhospitable  climate  in 
the  month  of  October,  without  shelter  and  without  knowing  where 
to  find  a  place  to  reside.  The  chagrin  of  the  officers  was  not  to  me 
as  truly  effecting  as  the  distress  of  the  men.  Those  reputable  ser- 
geants of  Ludlow's,  Fanning's,  Robinson's,  etc.,  (once  hospitable 
yeomen  of  the  country) addressed  me  in  language  that  almost  mur- 
dered me  as  I  heard  it :  '  Sir,  we  have  ser\'ed  all  the  war ;  we  were 
promised  land,  we  expected  you  had  obtained  it  for  us.  We  like 
the  country ;  only  let  us  have  a  spot  of  our  own  and  give  us  such 
kind  of  regulations  as  will  protect  us.'  "  Some  of  the  Hessian  sol- 
diers, as  we  have  said,  were  also  granted  lands  in  Nova  Scotia.  At 
least  one  well  known  locality,  a  tract  of  country  called  the  "  Waldeck 
Line,"  near  Clementsvale,  in  Annapolis  County,  was  settled  by  these 
foreigners,  and  is  still  peopled  by  their  descendants. 

The  arrival  of  the  Loyalists  at  St.  John  and  at  Shelbume  and 
other  points  on  the  rocky  Nova  Scotia  sea-coast,  cannot  be  pictured 
without  sadness.  The  age  in  which  these  exiles  lived  was  far  less 
luxurious  than  the  one  in  which  we  live,  yet  in  the  older  colonies 
from  which  they  came  many  of  them  had  been  the  possessors  of  con- 
siderable wealth,  a  few  having  had  what  was  then  great  wealth,  and 
most  of  them,  at  least  having  owned  or  been  the  inmates  of  comfor- 
table homes  in  prosperous  communities.  To  have  been  compelled  to 
leave  these  settled  homes  for  hastily  constructed  tents  and  log  houses 
in  the  wild  forests  of  an  almost  unexplored  province;  and,  men, 
-women,  and  little  children,  to  be  made  to  suffer  all  the  privation  and

hardship  of  pioneer  life,  was  enough,  one  would  suppose,  to  have  dis- 
couraged even  the  bravest  hearts.  For  such  people  as  the  De  Lan- 
cejs,  Inglises,  Ludlows,  Robinsons,  and  Wilkinses  of  New  York;  and 
the  Blisses,  Bjleses,  Chipmans,  Putnams,  and  Winslows  of  Massa- 
chusetts, to  be  obliged  to  leave  luxurious  surroundings  for  the  in- 
credible hardships  of  life  in  Nova  Scotia  and  New  Brunswick  in 
those  days,  must  have  been  much  the  same  as  it  would  be  now  for  the 
Gerrjs,  Iselins,  Morgans,  or  Rhinelanders  of  New  York;  or  the 
Ameses,  Cushings,  Lawrences,  Lowells,  or  Thayers  of  Boston,  to 
banish  themselves  suddenly  to  some  lonely  part  of  Arizona,  leanng 
most  of  their  property  behind. 

To  the  actual  physical  discomforts  which  these  people  suffered 
on  sea  and  land  we  must  add  the  sorrow  many  felt  at  the  severino-  of 
family  tics,  the  breaking  of  friendships  that  were  dear  as  life  it- 
self, and  the  sad  separation  from  scenes  that  had  become  endeared 
to  them  by  a  thousand  tender  associations.  Bishop  John  Inglis 
writes  in  1844,  after  his  first  episcopal  visit  to  Shelbume,  that  he  had 
found  there,  still  living,  some  of  the  New  York  emigrants,  who  told 
him  "  that  on  their  first  an-ival,  lines  of  women  could  be  seen  sitting 
on  the  rocks  of  the  shore,  weeping  at  their  altered  condition  " ;  and 
Sabine  says,  "  I  have  stood  at  the  graves  of  some  of  these  wives  and 
daughters,  and  have  listened  to  the  accounts  of  the  living  in  shame 
and  anger."  At  St.  John  the  first  dwellings  were  all  log  huts,  a  little 
church  being  the  earliest  frame  building  erected.  Walter  Bates,  de- 
scribing the  settlement  of  Kingston,  on  the  St.  John  river,  by  him- 
self and  his  fellow  passengers  of  the  "good  ship  Union,"  says: 
"The  next  morning  with  all  our  effects,  women  and  children,  we 
set  sail  above  the  falls,  and  arrived  at  Belleisle  Bay  before  sunset. 
Nothing  but  wilderness  before  our  eyes ;  the  women  and  children  did 
not  refrain  from  tears !  John  Marvin,  John  Lyon  and  myself  went 
on  shore  and  pitched  a  tent  in  the  bushes  and  slept  in  it  all  night. 
Next  morning  every  man  came  on  shore  and  cleared  away  and 
landed  all  our  baggage,  and  the  women  and  children,  and  the  sloop 
left  us  alone  in  the  ^vilderness.  We  had  been  informed  that  the 
Indians  were  uneasy  at  our  coming,  and  that  a  considerable  body  had 
collected  at  the  head  of  Belleisle.  Yet  our  hope  and  trust  remained 
firm  that  God  would  not  forsake  us.  We  set  to  work  with  such  reso- 
lution that  before  night  we  had  as  many  tents  set  as  made  the  women 
and  children  comfortable."  Soon  "  every  man  was  jointly  employed 
clearing  places  for  building,  cutting  logs,  carrying  them  together

by  strength  of  hands,  and  laying  up  log  houses,  h\  which  means 
seventeen  log  houses  were  laid  up  and  covered  with  bark,  so  that 
by  the  month  of  November,  every  man  in  the  district  found  him- 
self and  family  covered  under  his  own  roof,  and  a  happier  people 
never  Hved  upon  this  globe,  enjoying  in  unity  the  blessings  which 
God  had  provided  for  us  in  the  country  into  whose  coves  and  wild 
woods  we  were  driven  through  persecution." 

The  annual  reports  of  the  Church  of  England  missionaries,  to 
the  Society  for  the  Propagation  of  the  Gospel,  give  us  much  in- 
sight into  the  troubles  experienced  by  the  Tory  exiles  at  the  be- 
ginning of  their  new  life  in  these  provinces.  Not  a  little  of  their 
suffering,  as  in  the  case  of  the  disbanded  troops,  came  from  un- 
avoidable delays  in  the  allotment  of  lands  for  their  use.  It  is 
quite  possible  that  the  Nova  Scotia  government  may  not  have  been 
thoroughly  systematic  in  its  methods  of  arranging  for  the  settle- 
ment of  these  unhappy  people,  but  it  will  be  remembered  that  for 
two  or  three  years  the  refugees  kept  pouring  into  the  province  in 
bewildering  numbers,  and  that  certain  formalities  were  necessary  in 
granting  the  smallest  amount  of  government  land  for  their  use. 
No  one  who  examines  the  records  of  the  time  can  help  seeing  that, 
as  Sir  Guy  Carleton  in  New  York  was  determined  to  leave  nothing 
undone  which  he  could  do  to  assist  the  Lo^-alists  in  leaving  their 
old  homes,  so  Governor  Parr  in  Nova  Scotia,  was  most  anxious  to 
help  them  find  comfortable  new  homes  in  the  country  to  which  they 
had  come.  But  it  is  clear  that  Parr  and  his  Council  were  some- 
times at  their  wits'  end  to  know  how  to  provide  for  this  unexpected 
influx  of  new  inhabitants. 

The  progress  of  the  leading  Loyalist  settlements  in  Nova 
Scotia  and  New  Brunswick  can  perhaps  be  ascertained  better  from  the 
Reports  of  the  Society  for  the  Propagation  of  tlie  Gospel  than  in 
any  other  way.  The  missionaries,  who  like  their  congregations 
had  been  obliged  to  leave  the  revolting  colonies,  knew  intimately 
the  condition  of  the  wilderness  communities  in  which  their  lot  was 
liow  cast ;  and  the  exigencies  of  their  missions  and  the  rules  of  the 
Society  required  that  detailed  reports  of  the  people's  condition  should 
be  sent  to  England  every  year.  "  Of  the  terrible  sufferings  and 
hardships  the  Loyalists  underwent,  who  came  to  Nova  Scotia  and 
New  Brunswick,"  says  Mr.  Edward  F.  De  Lancey,  "  the  history  of 
these  provinces  makes  sad  mention.  SufHce  it  to  say  here,  that  they 
have  never  been  paralleled  since  the  persecutions  of  the  Hugenots

and  their  flight  from  France  at  the  Revocation  of  the  Edict  of 
Nantes,  in  1685." 

Among  the  Loyalists  who  left  the  various  colonies  now  states 
of  the  American  Union,  for  Nova  Scotia  and  New  Brunswick,  were 
some  seventy  men  who  were  promoted  to  so  high  official  rank,  or  be- 
came otherwise  so  prominent  in  their  new  spheres,  as  to  have  left 
their  names  indelibly  stamped  on  the  histor3'  of  the  Maritime  Prov- 
inces. Thomas  Barclay,  who  after  the  peace  became  H.  M.  first 
Consul-General  at  New  York,  v,-as  one  of  these  men;  Daniel  and 
Jonathan  Bliss,  Sampson  Salter  Blowers,  Ward  Chipman,  Francis 
Green,  Charles  Inglis,  Jonathan  Odell,  John  Wentworth,  and  Isaac 
Wilkins  were  others.  A  great  many  of  the  Loyalists  who  founded 
families  in  Nova  Scotia  or  New  Brunswick  came  from  Westchester, 
New  York.  Of  this  stock  are  the  families  of  Bates,  Bonnett,  Bug- 
bee,  Disbrow,  Gidney,  :Merritt,  Mott,  Palmer,  Purdy,  Sneden,  Wet- 
more,  and  Wilkins.  Other  New  York  names  were  Anderson,  Andrews,

Viscount  Bury  says  truly  of  the  settlement  of  the  suffering 
Loyalists  in  the  several  provinces  of  what  is  now  the  Dominion  of 
Canada:  "It  may  safely  be  said  that  no  portion  of  the  British 
possessions  ever  received  so  noble  an  acquisition." 

In  1783  according  to  the  report  of  Lieut-Col.  ^lorse  to  Sir 
Guy  Carleton,  there  were  in  the  penninsula  of  Nova  Scotia  and  the 
county  of  Sunbury  (the  province  of  New  Brunswick)  fourteen  thou- 
sand "  old  British  inhabitants,"  one  thousand  of  whom,  as  has  al- 
ready been  stated,  were  within  the  limits  of  New  Brunswick.  It  is 
almost  certain  that  the  actual  number  was  much  larger  than 
Colonel  Morse  reported  it,  but  at  present  we  have  no  means  of 
knowing  exactly  what  it  was. 

The  advent  of  so  many  thousands  of  new  people  to  the  prov- 
ince, and  the  unusual  interest  taken  in  their  welfare  by  the  Home 
Government  and  the  provincial  authorities,  naturally  created  some 
jealousy  in  the  minds  of  these  old  inhabitants.  The  Tories  were 
not  in  a  conciliatory  state  of  mind,  and  having  lately  come  out  of 
a  far  more  advanced  civilization  than  that  of  the  forest  girt  Nova 
Scotian  shores  they  would,  not  unnaturally,  also  make  more  or  less 
assertion  of  superiority-  to  the  older  settlers,  at  their  quiet  fisheries 
and  on  their  fanns  along  the  rough  Atlantic  seashore  and  beside 
the  vast  meadows  of  the  Basin  of  Minas  and  Cobequid  Bay.  The 
inevitable  friction  that  actually  did  arise  between  the  two  bodies 
of  people  could  not  be  lessened,  either,  by  the  fact  that  many  of 
the  Loyalists  were  men  so  long  accustomed  to  assert  themselves 
strongly  in  political  and  social  affairs  that  in  their  new  sphere  they 
could  not  help  soon  making  their  influence  felt  in  marked  ways.  Such 
persons  as  General  Timothy  Buggies,  Major  Thomas  Barclay,  Col. 
James  and  Col.  Stephen  De  Lancey,  Mr.  Isaac  Wilkins,  and  Samp- 
son Salter  Blowers,  could  not  remain  inactive,  or  take  second  rank 
in  any  place  where  their  fortunes  might  be  cast.  Accordingly,  we 
find  these  men,  and  others  of  their  fellow  Loyalists,  shortly  occupy- 
ing prominent  places  in  the  Council,  the  House  of  Assembly,  or  the 
Judiciary,  and  in  the  social  life  of  Nova  Scotia ;  while  in  the  county 
of  Sunbury  a  distinct  agitation  very  soon  began  to  show  itself  for 
the  formation  of  a  new  province. 

The  history  of  Shelbume,  the  Loyalist  settlement  at  Port 
Razior,  begun  with  such  high  hopes  and  resulting  in  a  few  years  in 
such  dismal  failure,  has  a  melancholy  interest.  Its  New  York 
founders  from  the  start  determined  to  make  it  an  important  naval

and  military  station,  and  at  one  time  hoped  that  it  would  supplant 
Halifax  as  the  capital  of  the  Province.  In  a  short  time  after  its 
foundation,  its  population  rose  to  between  ten  and  twelve  thousand, 
but  the  site  chosen  for  it  was  so  unfavorable,  there  being  no  good 
farming  country  about  it,  that  before  many  years  had  pass'^d  the^ma- 
jority  of  its  inhabitants  had  moved  away,  either  to  New  Brunswick, 
to  other  parts  of  Nova  Scotia,  or  as  in  many  cases,  to  their  old 
homes  in  the  United  States,  leaving  it  a  sad  and  disappointed  place. 
Such  of  those  who  returned  to  the  United  States  locked  their  doors, 
not  even  removing  their  funiiture,  and  quietly  went  awav,  leaving 
their  houses  to  be  taken  unchallenged  possession  of  by  Negroes  ov 
other  poor  settlers,  in  future  times.  ,       ; 

"  I  have  lately  been  at  Shelbume,"  writes  Bishop  John  Inglis, 
in  1844,  in  a  letter  previously  referred  to,  "  where  nearly  ten  thou- 
sand Loyalists,  chiefly  from  New  York,  and  comprising  many  of 
my  father's  parishioners,  attracted  by  the  beauty  and  security  of 
a  most  noble  harbor,  were  tempted  to  plant  themselves,  regardless  of 
the  important  want  of  any  country  in  the  neighborhood  fit  for  culti- 
vation. Their  means  were  soon  exhausted  in  building  a  spacious 
town,  at  great  expense,  and  vainly  contending  against  indomitable 
rocks ;  but  in  a  few  years  the  place  was  reduced  to  a  few  hundred 
famihes.  Many  of  these  returned  to  their  native  country,  and  a 
large  portion  of  them  were  reduced  to  poverty.  .  .  .  Some  few  of 
the  first  emigrants  are  still  Hving."  How  many  actually  remained 
in  the  peninsula  of  Nova  Scotia,  and  how  many  went  back  to  the 
United  States,  it  is  impossible  to  say.  There  are  still  many  families 
of  Loyalist  descent  in  the  province,  but  a  large  number  of  the  most 
important  Loyalist  names  have  almost  or  quite  disappeared. 

In  1783,  as  soon  as  the  people  of  Shelbume  were  well  settled, 
Governor  Parr  came  down  from  Halifax  and  paid  them  a  visit.  On 
Sunday,  July  twentieth,  he  arrived  in  H.  M.  Sloop,  La  Sophie. 
When  he  disembarked,  salutes  were  fired  from  the  ship,  and  as  he 
landed,  cannon  were  also  fired  by  the  Artillery  at  the  port,  the 
officers  of  the  corps  on  duty  receiving  him  with  due  formality.  On 
Tuesday  morning  he  again  landed,  amidst  loud  cannonading,  and 
marched  up  King  Street  through  long  lines  of  the  inhabitants  as- 
sembled to  do  him  honor,  to  the  place  appointed  for  his  reception  by 
the  justices  of  the  peace  and  other  principal  inhabitants  of  the  place. 
After  an  address  had  been  presented  to  him,  he  named  the  new  town 
Shelbume,  and  "  drank  the  King's  health,  prosperity  to  the  town

and  district  of  Shelbume,  and  to  the  Loyalists,  each  toast  being  ac- 
companied with  a  general  discharge  of  cannon."  In  the  evening 
a  grand  dinner  was  given  on  board  the  Sophie;  and  the  next  day 
another  at  the  house  of  Justice  Robertson,  in  the  town,  a  public 
ball  and  supper,  "  conducted  with  the  greatest  festivity  and  de- 
corum," following  later,  after  which  his  Excellcncj-,  well  pleased, 
returned  to  Halifax. 

The  next  year,  in  May,  Sir  Charles  Douglas,  Bart.,  Commander 
of  the  British  Navy,  on  this  station,  visited  the  town  and  was  fit- 
tingly received ;  the  same  month  Sir  John  Wentworth,  then  Mr.  Went- 
worth.  Surveyor  General  of  the  King's  Woods  in  North  America, 
made  Shelburae  a  brief  visit.  Four  years  later,  the  town  received 
Prince  William  Henry,  aftenvards  King  William  IV,  then  a  young 
naval  officer,  who  came  in  the  warship  Andromeda  and  staid  four 
days.  During  his  stay  a  ball  was  given  for  his  Roj-al  Highness, 
which  the  Prince  himself  opened  with  Mrs.  Bruce,  wife  of  tlie  Col- 
lector of  the  port.  In  1786,  says  Murdoch,  "  the  new  city  was  a 
gay  and  livel}-  place.  Every  holiday  or  anniversary  of  any  descrip- 
tion, was  lo^'ally  kept  and  mirthfully  enjoyed.  On  St.  Andrew's 
day,  December  eleventh,  of  that  year,  the  St.  Andrew's  Society  gave 
an  elegant  ball  at  the  Merchant's  coffee  house.  The  ball  room  was 
crowded  on  the  occasion,  and  the  hours  of  the  night  passed  away 
in  the  most  pleasing  manner." 

The  settlement  at  the  mouth  of  the  St.  John  River  was  much 
more  successful.  When  the  first  Loyalists  reached  that  picturesque 
bay  the  shores  were  densely  wooded,  only  a  little  spot  about  Fort 
Howe  showing  that  white  men  had  ever  been  there  before.  The  ref- 
ugees lived  first  in  log  huts,  brush  camps,  or  canvas  huts,  but  slowly, 
on  the  cleared  slopes  small  frame  houses  arose,  a  little  Episcopal 
Church  being  built  for  worship,  first  of  all.  In  the  beginning,  the 
town  was  laid  out  in  lots  and  given  in  two  grants,  one  to  eleven 
hundred  and  eighty-four  grantees,  another  to  ninety-three.  Other 
Loyalist  settlements  also  soon  arose, — at  Fredericton,  which  in  1788 
was  made  the  capital  of  the  new  province,  at  Gagetown,  Kingston, 
Maugerv'ille,  St.  Andrew,  Sussex,  and  Woodstock. 

The  displeasure  of  some  of  the  Loyalists  regarding  what  they 
felt  to  be  the  tardy  action  of  government  in  the  apportionment  of 
their  lands,  or  with  the  allotments  themselves,  has  frequently  been 
discussed.  Both  in  Nova  Scotia  and  New  Brunswick,  this  dis- 
pleasure emphatically  showed  itself.     At  Shelbume,  in  consequence

of  discontent  with  the  allotments  already  made,  the  Governor  and 
Council,  August  5,  1784-,  appointed  the  following  persons  as  their 
Agents  there  in  the  assignment  of  lands:  Isaac  Wilkins,  James 
McEwen,  Abraham  Van  Buskirk,  Joseph  Brewer,  David  Thompson, 
Joshua  Watson,  Benjamin  Da\'is,  Charles  McXeal,  Ebenczer  Parker, 
Alexander  Leckie,  Joshua  Pell,  Nicholas  Ogden,  Robert  Gray, 
justices  of  the  peace ;  Valentine  Nutter,  Peter  Lynch,  William  Charles 
White,  John  Lownds,  Alexander  Robinson,  Patrick  Wall,  Michael 
Langan;  Isaac  Wilkins  and  any  four  of  the  others,  to  constitute  a 
quorum.  In  November,  1784,  the  governor  authorized  Amos  Bot^- 
ford,  the  Rev.  Edward  Brudenell,  Colonel  Barton,  and  Messrs.  Hill 
and  Stump,  to  lay  out  and  assign  unlocated  lands  in  Digby  to  such 
persons  there  as  were  unprovided  with  land. 

At  St.  John  there  was  so  great  dissatisfaction  that  in  1783 
four  hundred  persons  signed  an  agreement  to  remove  to  Passama- 
quoddy.  Tuttle,  in  his  history  of  Canada,  says :  "  The  Loyalists 
who  settled  at  the  St.  John  River  did  not  agree  very  well  with 
the  original  setlers.  They  grew  angry  with  the  Governor  because 
their  grants  of  land  had  not  been  surveyed,  and  he  in  turn  charged 
them  with  refusing  to  assist  in  the  surveys  b\'  acting  as  chainmen 
unless  they  were  well  paid  for  it." 

Soon  the  Loyalists  demanded  additional  representation  in  the 
Nova  Scotia  Assembly,  but  this  Governor  Parr  opposed,  on  the 
ground  that  his  instructions  forbade  his  increasing  or  diminishing 
the  number  of  representatives  in  the  Assembly.  Failing  in  their 
efforts  to  secure  increased  representation,  the  people  next  began 
to  agitate  for  a  new  province  north  of  the  isthmus,  a  policy  against 
which  Governor  Parr  naturally  strongly  contended.  In  the  early 
part  of  178^  as  many  as  three  hundred  and  forty-one  persons  at 
Parr  Tov^n  (St.  John)  passed  resolutions  of  various  sorts  regarding 
the  separation,  and  so  influential  were  the  Loyalists  with  the  English 
ministry,  that  their  request  was  granted  and  in  August  news  came 
out  to  the  Halifax  authorities,  in  the  packet  from  Falmouth,  that  a 
new  province,  in  compliment  to  the  reigning  family  of  England  to 
be  called  New  Brunswick,  was  to  be  at  once  set  off.  The  line  be- 
tween New  Brunswick  and  Nova  Scotia,  it  was  declared,  was  to  be 
at  the  narrowest  part  of  the  isthmus,  from  Bay  Verte  to  Cumberland 
Basin,  which  division  would  place  Fort  Cumberland,  and  indeed 
much  of  what  was  then  Cumberland  County,  within  the  limits  of 
the   new  province.     The   governor   of  New   Brunswick  was    to   be

Colonel  Thomas  Carleton,  a  brother  of  Sir  Guy,  who  had  himself 
commanded  a  regiment  during  the  war  and  was  highly  esteemed  by 
the  exiled  Loyalists. 

In  October,  Colonel  Carleton  and  his  family  anrived  at  Halifax 
from  London,  in  the  St.  Laurence,  Captain  Wyatt,  after  a  pas- 
sage of  eight  weeks ;  and  on  Sunda}',  November  twenty-first,  at  three 
o'clock  in  the  afternoon,  they  reached  St.  John,  where  they  re- 
ceived a  most  enthusiastic  welcome.  As  the  Ranger,  the  sloop  in 
which  the}-  had  crossed  the  bay  from  Digby,  entered  the  harbor, 
one  sahite  of  seventeen  guns  was  fired  from  the  battery  at  Lower 
Cove,  and  another  from  Fort  Howe.  The  house  of  Mr.  George 
Leonard,  at  the  corner  of  Union  and  Dock  streets,  had  been  fitted  up 
for  their  reception,  and  thither,  amidst  great  applause,  the  dis- 
tinguished party  was  at  once  conducted.  As  his  Excellency  entered 
the  door  the  crowd  gave  three  rousing  cheers,  with  "  Long  live  our 
King  and  Governor!"  Then  the  enthusiastic  people  dispersed,  to 
dream  of  the  august  ceremony  that  should  be  held  on  the  morrow, 
when  the  Chief  should  take  the  oaths  of  his  office  and  the  new 
Council  be  sworn. 

The  first  Legislative  Council  of  New  Brunswick  consisted  of 
George  Duncan  Ludlow,  James  Putnam,  Abijah  Willard,  Gabriel  G. 
Ludlow,  Isaac  Allan,  William  Hazen,  and  Dr.  Jonathan  Odell,  all 
of  whom  had  been  men  of  considerable  note  in  the  colonies  from 
which  they  had  come.  Five  days  after  the  first  meeting  of  the  new 
Council,  its  number  was  increased  by  the  appointment  of  Guilfred 
Studholm,  and  on  the  fourth  of  December,  by  that  of  Edward  Wins- 
low;  in  July,  1766,  two  more  members  being  added,  Messrs.  Joshua 
Upham  and  Daniel  Bliss.  A  judiciary  was  also  appointed,  consist- 
ing of  George  Duncan  Ludlow,  Chief  Justice;  and  James  Putnam, 
Isaac  Allan,  and  Joshua  Upham,  Assistant  Judges.  The  Supreme 
Court  met  for  the  first  time  on  Tuesday,  February  first,  1785,  in 
the  little  frame  church,  which  thus  sensed  both  for  worship  and 
the  administration  of  justice.  The  first  parliament  of  the  pro\'ince 
assembled  in  St.  John  on  the  third  of  January,  1786,  in  a  house 
known  as  the  "  Mallard "  house,  on  the  north  side  of  King  Street, 
the  members  being:  Stanton  Hazard,  and  John  jMcGeorge,  for  the 
City  of  St.  John ;  and  William  Pagan,  Ward  Chipman,  Jonathan 
Bliss,  and  Christopher  Billopp,  for  the  county.  The  Speakership 
of  the  House  of  Assembly  was  given  to  Amos  Botsford,  the  presi- 
dency of  the  Council  to  the  Chief  Justice,  Mr.  Ludlow,  the  office

of  Attorney-General  to  Dr.  Jonathan  Odell,  and  that  of  Provincial 
Secretary  to  Jonathan  Bliss. 

Of  these  high  officials,  most  of  whom  were  for  many  years  after 
their  first  appointment  intimately  connected  with  the  destinies  of  the 
province  they  had  helped  create ,  George  Duncan  Ludlow  had  been  a 
judge  of  the  supreme  court  of  New  York,  James  Putnam  had  long 
ranked  as  one  of  the  ablest  lawyers  in  America;  Abijah  Willard,  of 
Massachusetts,  had  been  a  mandamus  councillor  and  had  served  in 
the  Army  from  the  taking  of  Louisburg  until  1763,  later  being  com- 
missary to  the  troops  at  New  York;  Gabriel  G.  Ludlow,  of  New 
York  had  commanded  a  battalion  of  Maryland  volunteers;  Isaac 
Allan  had  been  colonel  of  a  New  Jersey  corps  of  Volunteers  and  had 
lost  an  estate  in  Pennsylvania  because  of  his  attachment  to  the 
royal  cause;  William  Hazen,  formerly  of  Newburyport,  Massachu- 
setts, had  come  to  Sunbury  in  1775  and  engaged  in  business;  the 
Hon.  and  Rev.  Dr.  Jonathan  Odell,  of  New  Jersey,  had  practised 
medicine  and  been  a  successful  Church  of  England  priest,  in  which 
capacity  he  had  acted- as  chaplain  to  the  royal  troops;  and  Guil- 
fred  Studholm,  probably  also  a  New  England  man,  had  been  in  the 
province  for  some  years  in  military  service,  as  commander  at  Fort 

Among  the  noted  families  whom  the  Revolution  brought  into 
Nova  Scotia,  none  has  left  more  picturesque  traditions  than  the 
Wentworth  family  of  New  Hampshire.  At  the  outbreak  of  the  war, 
Mr.  John  Wentworth,  a  son  of  Mark  Hunking  Wentworth,  an  emi- 
nent merchant  and  a  member  of  the  council,  was  Governor  of  New 
Hampshire;  his  immediate  predecessor  having  been  his  uncle,  Benning 
Wentworth,  whose  romantic  second  marriage,  to  his  housekeeper, 
the  fair  Martha  Hilton,  by  the  Rev.  Arthur  Browne,  in  1760,  Long- 
fellow has  made  the  subject  of  his  graceful  poem,  "  Lady  Went- 
worth," in  the  "  Tales  of  a  Wayside  Inn."  Obliged  to  leave  New 
Hampshire,  on  account  of  his  Tory  principles,  in  September,  1775, 
John  Wentworth  took  refuge  with  the  British  troops  in  Boston, 
and  when  General  Howe  left  that  city  for  Halifax  the  next  year, 
went  with  them,  and  remained  under  their  protection  until  they  re- 
turned to  New  York.  From  New  York,  Mr.  Wentworth  went  to  New- 
port, and  at  last,  in  September,  1778,  to  England,  where  he  staid 
until  1783,  when  he  was  appointed  Sun-eyor  General  of  the  King's 
Woods  for  all  his  Majesty's  remaining  colonies  in  North  America. 
Then,  at  a  salary  of  seven  hundred  pounds  a  year,  he  removed  to

Nova  Scotia,  and  with  his  wife  Frances,  who  was  also  his  first  cousin, 
and  his  son,  Charles-^Mar}-,  established  himself  in  Halifax,  where  he 
spent  the  remaining  thirty-seven  years  of  his  life.  In  3  792,  he  suc- 
ceeded Vice-Admiral  John  Parr  as  Lieutenant-Governor  of  Nova 
Scotia;  in  1795,  he  was  created  a  baronet;  and  in  June,  1796,  so 
the  Wentworth  family  history  records,  he  was  still  further  honoured 
with  the  privilege  of  wearing  in  the  chevron  of  his  arms,  two  keys, 
as  an  emblem  of  fidelity.  His  wife,  Lady  Frances,  a  woman  of 
beaut}'  and  tact,  was  so  much  admired  in  England  that  Queen  Char- 
lotte appointed  her  a  lady-in-waiting,  with  a  salary  of  five  hundred 
pounds  a  year  and  permission  to  live  abroad.  Their  only  son,  Sir 
Charles-Mary,  named  for  his  god-parents,  the  Marquis  and  Mar- 
chioness of  Rockingham,  lived  most  of  his  time  in  England,  where 
he  finally  died  without  issue,  when  the  baronetcy  became  extinct.  In 
1808,  just  before  the  close  of  Sir  John's  administration,  on  the  death 
of  his  uncle  Benning  Wentworth,  his  mother's  brother,  Charlcs-]Mary 
was  appointed  Provincial  Secretary  of  Nova  Scotia,  but  he  never 
assumed  the  office.  Mi;.  Samuel  Hood  George  being  very  soon  ap- 
pointed instead.  Lady  Wentworth's  brother,  the  Hon.  Benning 
Wentworth,  held  the  oflSce  from  November,  1796,  till  his  death  in 
February,  1808. 

The  period  of  Sir  John  Wentworth's  administration  of  the 
Nova  Scotia  government  was  one  at  least  of  great  social  brilliancy. 
The  Governor  v.- as  not  a  man  of  remarkable  ability  and  his  preju- 
dices in  favor  of  royal  authority  were  somewhat  too  strong,  but 
his  social  qualities  were  quite  above  the  average,  and  his  hos- 
pitality and  Lady  Wentworth's  accomplishments  gave  the  sixteen 
years  of  the  Wentworth  administration  a  prestige  that  belongs  to 
no  other  period  in  maritime-provincial  history.  During  this  time 
government  house  was  the  scene  of  almost  unbroken  festivity:  "  They 
have  dined  ,at  Government  House,  between  December  twefth,  1794', 
and  October  twenty-ninth,  1795,"  says  Nathaniel  Ray  Thomas,  an- 
other of  the  Wentworth  connections,  "  two  thousand,  four  hundred 
and  thirtj'-seven  persons."  Nor  was  the  general  gayety  of  the  time 
at  all  lessened  by  the  presence  in  Halifax  during  nearly  six  years  of 
Sir  John's  govemship,  of  his  Royal  Highness,  Prince  Edward,  Duke 
of  Kent,  father  of  her  Illustrious  Majesty,  the  late  lamented  Queen 
Victoria.  The  Duke  of  K'cnt,  who  at  this  time  commanded  the 
King's  forces  in  North  America,  during  his  stay  in  Nova  Scotia 
rented  a  few  miles  out  of  town  a  villa  owned  by  Sir  John  Wentworth,

from  that  time  until  its  destruction  known  as  the  "  Prince's  Lodge," 
and  there  he  also  entertained  considerably.  Twice  while  he  was  in 
Halifax,  his  brother,  Prince  William  Henry,  who  later  came  to  the 
throne,  visited  the  Province ;  and  while  Sir  John  was  Governor  many 
other  distinguished  persons,  notably  the  young  Duke  of  Orleans, 
afterward  King  Louis  Philippe,  and  his  two  brothers,  the  Duke  de 
Montpensier,  and  Count  Beaujolie,  were  guests  in  the  hospitable 
houses  of  the  capital  of  the  Acadian  Province  by  the  Sea. 

Until  a  very  recent  time,  Halifax  was  a  favourite  station  of  the 
Imperial  anny  and  navy,  and  for  over  a  hundred  years  its  social 
life  had  all  the  picturesquoness  and  varied  charm  that  everywhre 
belong  to  British  naval  and  military  towns.  With  the  breaking  up 
of  old  families,  the  removal  of  the  Imperial  troops,  and  the  closing 
of  the  Dockyard  a  good  deal  of  change  has  come  over  the  city,  but 
it  remains  an  attractive  place  still.  In  the  eighteenth  century, 
when  the  Loyalists  were  influential  there,  its  customs  were  natu- 
rally much  like  those  of  Boston,  Salem,  Portsmouth,  and  New 
York.  Its  gentry  went  about  in  sedan  chairs,  the  men  in  knee- 
breeches  and  queues,  the  women  with  hoops  and  powdered  hair 
and  paletots.  In  1794-,  sedan  chairs  were  advertised  to  hire  in 
Barrington  Street,  at  one  shilling,  one  and  three-pence,  and 
six-pence,  apiece.  For  church  on  Sunday,  the  price  was  an  eighth 
of  a  dollar;  to  Dutchtown,  a  little  out  of  the  city,  the  ride  cost 
a  shilling.  Shortly  before  this  there  was  but  one  carriage  in  the 
town,  the  owner  of  which  was  so  obliging  that  on  the  evenings  of 
grand  balls  he  used  to  send  his  servant  round  for  many  of  the  prin- 
cipal ladies,  each  of  whom  was  obliged  to  wait  patiently  her  turn. 

Many  of  these  balls  were  given  at  the  Great  Ponfac,  a  famous 
three-storied  wooden  hotel,  at  the  corner  of  Duke  and  Water  Streets, 
built  before  1757,  where  often  grand  dinners  also  were  given,  for 
which  the  ships'  cooks  were  called  into  requisition.  A  creek  ran  up 
close  to  this  hotel,  and  on  the  occasion  of  a  dinner  given  by  the 
naval  officers  who  thronged  the  place,  the  ships'  boats,  manned  by 
sailors  in  white,  would  row  up  with  hot  dishes,  which  would  be 
speedily  handed  into  the  house  for  the  several  courses.  In  1757,  be- 
fore the  taking  of  Louisburg,  Generals  Wolfe  and  Amherst  were  en- 
tertained at  the  Great  Pontac.  and  for  many  years  Halifax  had 
few  distinguished  guests  who  did  not  stretch  their  legs  beneath  its 
boards.  As  a  rule  dinners  were  given  at  three  o'clock,  or  on  very 
great  occasions  at  four,  the  supper  hour  being  between  eight  and

nine.  For  game  at  dinner,  we  are  amused  to  hear,  porcupines  were 
much  in  favour,  but  othen^ise  the  menu  did  not  differ  much  from  the 
modem  bill  of  fare.  Full  dress  for  men  consisted  of  knee-breeches, 
silk  stockings,  shoes  and  silver  buckles,  a  white  neckerchief  of  great 
thickness,  a  straight-collared  coat  with  large  buttons,  a  colored 
waistcoat,  and  a  silver  hilted  sword  or  rapier,  like  a  long  dagger. 
Full  dress  for  women  was  a  stiff  brocaded  silk  or  heavy  satin  gown, 
with  a  long  prim  waist  from  wliich  the  ample  hooped  skirt  spread 
off  much  like  a  balloon,  and  sleeves  tight  to  the  arm.  Over  the 
neck  and  bosom,  a  lace  handkercliief  was  likely  to  be  spread,  fastened 
b}'  a  heavy  jewelled  pin.  For  church  a  riclily  wrought  apron,  and 
spangled  white  kid  shoes,  with  peaked  toes  and  high  heels,  were  worn. 
The  hair,  dressed  •with  pomatum,  was  drawn  over  a  cushion  per- 
haps twelve  inches  in  height  and  sprinkled  thickly  with  white  powder, 
a  white  rosebud  or  other  natural  flower  crowning  tliis  extradordinary 
dome.  In  those  days  there  were  few  hair  dressers,  so  people  were 
obliged  to  begin  very  early  in  the  day  to  prepare  for  afternoon  or 
evening  entertainments,  and  very  clever  must  the  fashionable  hair- 
dresser have  been  who  managed  to  keep  all  his  patrons  in  good 
humor  as  he  went  his  slow  rounds  from  house  to  house. 

Private  dwellings  were  furnished  with  mahogany,  rich  and  dark ; 
the  tables  with  claws'  feet,  the  wide  boards  brass-plated,  and  the 
cellarets,  which  held  the  wines,  bound  elaborately  with  plates  of 
burnished  brass.  Great  arm-chairs  stood  in  the  comforta!>le  parlors, 
the  bed-rooms  held  heavy  four-posted  bedsteads,  curtained  and  cano- 
pied, and  in  the  halls  were  tall,  slow-ticking  Dutch  or  English  clocks. 
There  was  little  in  the  atmosphere  to  promote  thought,  so  after 
dinner  people  commonly  amused  themselves  by  playing  cards,  or 
else  walking  to  Point  Pleasant,  while  later  in  the  evening  the  ladies 
embroidered  and  the  men  read  aloud.  The  general  ease  of  the  com- 
munity, and  the  lack  of  business  pressure,  is  testified  to  by  the  fact 
that  in  1796   there  were  no  less  than  twenty-four  pubhc  holidays. 

The  Loyalists  brought  with  them  to  Nova  Scotia  from  the  other 
colonies  a  good  many  Negroes,  whom  as  a  rule  they  owned  as  abso- 
lutely as  they  did  their  horses  and  cows.  In  a  long  and  exhaustive 
article  on  "  The  Slave  in  Canada,"  in  the  Collections  of  the  Nova 
Scotia  Historical  Society,  the  late  Rev.  T.  Watson  Smith,  D.  D., 
has  given  interesting  glimpses  of  the  relations  of  these  slaves  to  their 
masters  in  different  parts  of  the  maritime  provinces.  In  Col.  Morse's 
report  of  the  Loyalists  in  1783,  no  less  than  twelve  hundred  and

thirty-two  sen-ants  are  mentioned,  nearly  all  of  whom,  Dr.  Smith 
thinks,  must  have  been  slaves.  Though  the  institution  of  slavery 
was  not  bj-  any  moans  unknoMni  in  Nova  Scotia,  among  the  Scotch 
in  the  northern  part  of  the  province  and  the  Puritans  of  lvino;s  and 
Annapolis  Counties,  before  thp  Loyahsts  came,  the  number  of  slaves 
must  have  been  comparativeh'  small.  Among  the  Tories,  however, 
were  many  persons  who  owned  from  one  to  twenty  slaves,  and  in 
X.oyalist  communities  transfers  of  slaves  with  other  merchandise  did 
not  wholly  cease  in  these  provinces  until  at  least  the  end  of  the 
first  decade  of  the  nineteenth  century. 

In  New  Brunswick,  of  course,  the  Loj-alists  reigned  supreme 
in  church  and  state;  in  Nova  Scotia,  besides  the  two  or  three  mem- 
bers of  the  Wentworth  family  who  held  official  positions,  there  were 
other  Loyalists,  not  a  few,  on  whom  high  honour  was  conferred  by 
the  British  Government.  The  erection  of  Nova  Scotia  into  the 
first  British  Colonial  See  gave  Dr.  Charles  Inglis,  at  the  outbreak  of 
the  war  the  Rector  of  Trinity  Church,  New  York,  an  honourable 
bishopric,  the  duties  of  which  he  faithfull}'  discharged  for  the  long 
term  of  between  twenty-eight  and  twenty-nine  years.  His  son,  Dr. 
John  Inglis,  as  the  third  bishop,  also  filled  the  same  high  office  for 
over  twenty-five  years.  Dr.  John  Halliburton,  a  physician  of  New- 
port, Rhode  Island,  soon  after  coming  to  the  Province,  was  appointed 
to  the  Council,  and  in  course  of  time,  his  son  Brenton  Halliburton, 
afterward  Sir  Brenton,  who  married  Bishop  Charles  Inglis'  daughter 
Margaret,  became  the  eighth  Chief  Justice  of  Nova  Scotia.  Thomas 
Barclay,  Sampson  Salter  Blowers  (seventh  Chief  Justice),  Stephen 
De  Lancey,  Timothy  Ruggles,  ;Michael  Wallace,  and  Isaac  Wilkins, 
as  we  have  before  observed,  are  others  who  in  their  Nova  Scotia 
exile  became  persons  of  note.  Against  the  losses  which  many  Loyal- 
ist families  sustained  by  their  exile,  must  be  placed  the  improved 
position,  through  titles  and  in  other  ways,  that  their  descendants, 
if  not  themselves,  have  gained.  The  number  of  descendants  of 
Loyalists  who,  in  Canada  or  in  England,  have  received  the  honor  of 
Knighthood  or  of  Baronetcies,  if  it  were  known,  would  probably  be 
found  to  be  not  by  any  means  small.  The  material  compensation  for 
their  losses  which  the  British  Government  awarded  the  Tory  refugees 
in  Nova  Scotia  must  also  in  the  main  be  felt  to  have  been  generous. 

The  name  of  one  other  person  connected  with  the  Revolution, 
who  temporarily  found  a  home  in  New  Brunswick  it  may  possibly 
not  be  uninteresting  to  mention  here.     "  In  1787,"  says  Mr.  Isaac

N.  Arnold,  "  Benedict  Arnold  removed  to  St.  John  and  entered 
largely  into  mercantile  business,  engaging  principally  in  the 
West  India  trade.  :Mr.  Sparks  suggests  that  the  English  Govern- 
ment granted  him  facilities  in  the  way  of  contracts  for  supplying  the 
troops  there  with  pro^-isions.  At  any  rate  he  carried  on  an  ex- 
tensive business,  building  ships,  and  sending  cargoes  to  the  West 
Indies,  his  two  sons,  Richard  and  Henry,  aiding  him  in  his  exten- 
sive operations.  .  .  .  Arnold  is  said  to  have  exhibited  here  some  of 
his  characteristic  faults,  living  in  a  style  of  ostentation  and  display, 
and  being  so  haughty  and  reser\'ed  in  his  intercouse  that  he  became 
personally  obnoxious.  While  the  family  were  residing  at  St.  John, 
George  Arnold,  their  sixth  child  was  bom."  In  1788,  General  Ar- 
nold and  his  family  returned  to  London,  where  they  had  first  settled 
five  years  before.  In  1790  they  were  again  in  St.  John,  but  in  1791 
removed  permanently  to  England. 

In  the  old  graveyard  in  the  heart  of  the  City  of  St.  John, 
in  the  not  less  interesting  St,  Paul's  Churchyard  in  Halifax,  and  in 
many  a  more  rural  spot  in  the  Maritime  Provinces,  sleep  hundreds 
of  the  exiled  adherents  of  the  British  Constitution  and  the  English 
"King.  On  the  dark,  weather-worn  tomb-stones  of  these  cemeteries 
one  may  read  names  that  before  the  Revolution  stood  liigh — none 
higher — in  the  older  colonies,  and  that  afterwards  to  the  history 
of  the  provinces  of  Nova  Scotia  and  New  Brunswick  gave  all  the 
lustre  of  their  marked  abilities.  Beneath  the  green  mounds  and 
within  the  long  unopened  vaults  repose  the  ashes  of  such  people  as 
the  Blowers,  Blisses,  Chaloners,  Grays,  Halliburtons,  Inglises,  Lud- 
lows,  Odells,  Sewalls,  Uphams,  and  Wilkinses.  On  the  walls  of  many 
a  simple  church  their  names  are  inscribed.  In  the  personal  dignity 
and  strict  sense  of  honour  of  many  a  family  of  the  little  Nova 
Scotia  and  New  Brunswick  towns  their  influence  lives.  They  were 
the  conservatives  of  their  time,  and  had  they  been  able  or  willing  to 
remain  in  the  United  States  might  have  helped  settle  the  Republic 
on  sure  and  wise  foundations.  Their  story  is  at  least  one  of  great 
dramatic  interest,  the  Moors  being  exp>elled  from  Spain,  the  Hugue- 
nots from  France,  and  the  Acadian  French  from  Nova  Scotia,  but 
none  of  these  famous  historic  expulsions  can  be  said  to  involve 
subtler  or  more  far  reaching  issues  than  the  enforced  Tory  emigra- 
tion to  Canada,  the  West  Indies,  the  province  of  New  Bruns^w-ick, 
and  last,  but  not  least,  the  placid  Acadian  peninsula,  whose  charms 
have  so  often  been  commemorated  in  story  and  song.

"  Of  its  kind  Mr.  Heisch's  volume  is  one  of  the  best  I  have

By  H.  L.  Jewett  ;  ^  '  ^  ;< 

Two  hundred  and  seventy-one  years  have  passed  since  our  ances- 
tors landed  in  New  England,  and  during  that  time  their  descendants 
have  "  increased  and  multiplied  "  until  they  are  found,  not  only  in 
nearly  every  State  and  Territory  in  the  Union,  but  beyond  the  seas, 
in  India,  Turkey,  China,  and  many  other  countries.  But  one  re- 
union of  the  family  has  been  held,  that  on  June  14,  1855,  at  Rowley, 
Essex  County,  Massachusetts,  where  the  two  immigrants  settled. 
At  that  time  but  little  was  known  of  the  family  historv'.  Gage,  in 
his  history  of  Rowley  ^  gave  "  Maximilian  and  Joseph  Jewett, 
brothers,  and  a  nephew,"  as  the  original  settlers ;  and  that  error  still 
remains  fixed  in  the  minds  of  many  of  our  family.  Through  the 
long,  careful  and  valuable  labors  of  George^ B.  Blodgette,  Esq.,  of 
Rowley,  that  error,  and  many  more  made  b}*  Gage  in  his  records, — 
he  was  town  clerk  of  Rowley  for  many  years, — concerning  the  early 

After  the  lapse  of  mote  than  half  a  century,  the  Jewett  family  will  meet  this 
summer  again  at  Rowley,  Massachusetts.  During  this  time  "  The  Jewett  Family 
In  America  "  has  been  published.  Although  in  two  large  volumes,  there  is  much 
information  which  the  work  does  not  contain  about  this  important  family,  and 
Mr.  H.  L.  Jewett  has  contributed  this  article  at  our  request  and  promises  others 
for  later  issues. — Editor.

settlers   of   Rowley,   have  been    corrected;    and    we  know    that   the 
"  nephew  "  referred  to  by  Gage,  was  Joseph  Jewett,  jr.' 

About  the  year  1853,  Professor  Charles  Coffin  Jewett,^  Secre- 
tary of  the  Smithsonian  Institution,  Washington,  aftei-ward  for  a 
number  of  years  superintendent  of  the  Boston  Public  Library,  visited 
Rowley,  Yorkshire,  England,  in  the  hope  of  finding  some  record  of 
the  Jewett  family  in  the  church  at  that  place,  and  of  which  the 
Rev.  Ezekiel  Rogers  was  for  about  twenty  years  rector,  as  it  was 
then  belived  that  our  ancestors  came  from  that  place.  The  Row- 
le}^  church  records,  however,  previous  to  1705,  have  been  lost  or 
destroyed,  and  the  visit  was  fruitless  so  far  as  securing  informa- 
tion relating  to  our  family  was  concerned. 

In  1854,  Mr.  H.  G.  Somcrby,  who  had  lived  in  England  for  a 
number  of  years  cx)llecting  data  concerning  New  England  families, 
found  in  the  course  of  his  examinations  at  Bradford,  the  wilh  of 
Edward  Jewett,  the  father  of  ^Maximilian  and  Joseph,  and  made  a 
copy  of  it,  which  he  sent  to  Prof.  Jewett.  From  that  paper  it  was 
first  learned  that  the  family  was  from  Bradford,  instead  of  Rowley, 
and  as  the  will  mentions  "  wife  Mary;  sons  William,  Maximilian  and 
Joseph;  and  daughter  Sarah,"  the  names  of  the  children  were  ob- 
tained; but  it  was  not  until  about  a  year  later  that  the  marriage 
record  of  Edward  Jewett  and  :Mary  Taylor,  and  the  baptismal  re- 
cords of  the  children  came  to  light. 

The  coming  re-union  of  the  family  at  Rowley  in  July,  1910, 
would  seem  to  be  an  event  of  more  than  ordinary  importance  to 
every  member  of  the  family,  and  especially  to  those  interested  in  the 
family  history.  It  was  believed  that  some  additions  to  the  pub- 
lished history  of  the  family  would  possess  special  and  timely  in- 
terest, and  in  this  hope  these  notes  have  been  hastily  prepared.  In 
his  address  at  the  Rowley  meeting  in  1855,  Prof.  Jewett  said: 

"  The  history  of  our  family,  quiet  and  unpretending  as  it  has 
always  been,  is  associated  with  the  most  stirring  and  impressive  events 
of  modem  times.  The  first  of  our  ancestors  known  to  us  were  actors 
in  most  important  scenes  of  the  moving  panorama  of  human  prog- 
ress. To  the  English  Puritans — their  enemies  themselves  being 
the  judges — are  to  be  attributed  the  strongest  steps  in  the  march

of  freedom.  The  great  principles  of  civil  and  religious  liberty  . 
.  .  .  were  first  fully  developed  and  established  by  their  efforts  and 
sacrifices.  The  colonization  of  this  country  by  such  men  first  gave 
an  assured  resting  place  for  these  principles  upon  the  earth ;  and 
viewed  in  all  its  bearings  and  consequences,  may,  I  believe,  .... 
be  said,  ....  to  have  done  more  for  the  progress  of  our  race  in 
the  paths  of  true  civilization,  than  any  and  all  other  assignable  hu- 
man causes." 

Concerning  the  origin  and  significance  of  our  family  name,  we 
are  left  to  conjecture.  Surnames  did  not  become  fixed  until  about 
the  time  of  the  Reformation,  but  every  surname  once  had  a  mean- 
ing. In  many  names  tliis  is  still  clear,  in  others  it  has  by  the  lapse 
of  time,  been  lost  among  obsolete  words,  or  corrupted  spelling,  the 
latter  being  undoubtedly  the  cause  of  by  far  the  g'reater  part  of 
the  changes. 

Many  names  are  derived  from  baptismal  names,  such  as  John- 
son, from  John's  son ;  Fitz  Herbert,  from  Herbert's  son ;  and  a 
numerous  class  are  derived  from  the  city,  ^^llage  or  manor  in  or  near, 
which  the  founder  of  the  family  dwelt,  or  from  other  objects  of  na- 
ture. Another  class  of  names  denote  occupation  such  as  Fanner, 
Weaver,  Smith,  Baker,  or  to  the  incidents  of  personal  or  physical 
characteristics  of  the  first  bearer  of  the  name.  Others  are  derived 
from  the  objects  of  the  animal,  vegetable  or  mineral  kingdom,  and 
even  from  the  celestial  hierarchy. 

Another  class  denotes  the  nationality  of  the  original  possessor, 
as  Scott,  Ireland,  Dane,  Flanders  and  others.  The  last  class  it 
should  seem  is  the  only  one  to  which,  if  to  either,  we  can  trace  our 
name.  The  first  sj'llable  suggests  the  question  whether  it  is  derived 
from  Jeu\  which  is  kno-wn  to  have  been  used  as  a  family  name.  The 
termination  et,  or  ett,  could  perhaps  be  accounted  for  and  logi- 
cally by  reference  to  such  names  as  Hewett,  supposed  to  be  derived 
from  Hugh,  Hew,  and  Everett,  from  Eber,  Eofer.  The  name  Jew 
docs  not  imply  that  the  founder  was  a  Hebrew,  "  but  as  has  been 
supposed,  from  his  having  slain  Jews  in  Syria,  when  such  deeds 
were  considered  meritorious."  At  least  two  early  writers  on  the 
subject  of  surnames  incline  to  the  opinion  that  the  name  Ives,  was 
originally  Jeics,  which  became  Jues,  and  then  by  the  change  of  "  i " 
for  "  j,"  and  "  u  "  for  "  v,"  Ives. 

The  name  has  also  been  supposed  by  some  to  be  of  French 
origin,  and  the  surname,  not  uncommon  in  France,  and  in  this  coun-

try  novr,  as  Jouet;  Jonet.^  Bardsley  says:  "We  must  not  forget 
a  once  familiar  corruption  of  the  diminutive  "  Juliet  "  into  "  Juet." 
Such  entries  as  "  Jueta  fil  William;"  "Richard  fil  Juetta,"  or 
"  Christopher  Je^-itson,"  are  very  common  in  the  rolls  of  the  XIII 
and  XIV  centuries." 

Ferguson  -  says :  "  The  name  Jewctt  is  from  the  '  Com- 
pounds ' :  French,  Jougard  ;  Jouhard  ;  Jouet." 

Bowditch  ^  says:  "  The  law  has  furnished  many  famiU'  names, 
as  Jewctt,"  and  Arthur*  says:  "  Jewett;  a  little  jew;  the  son  of  a 
jew:  French:  Jouet:  toy;  sport." 

The  name  does  not  appear  in  the  "  Patronymica  Brittanic  " ; 
"A  Dictionary  of  Family  Names."  By  Mark  Anthon}'  Lower,  M. 
A.  London,  1860;  nor  in  his  "Essays  of  Family  Nomenclature" 
(  London,  1875).  As  Lower  was  one  of  the  most  voluminous  writers 
on  the  subject,  the  absence  of  the  name,  which,  if  not  prominent,  has 
been  so  long  known  in  England,  is  not  a  little  curious. 

In  seeking  the  origin  of  the  name  it  may  possibly  be  found 
nearer  the  old  home  of  our  family.  English  history  tells  us  that 
the  Saxons  and  Angles  were  accompanied  in  their  descent  upon 
England  by  the  "  Jutes,"  who  are  said  to  have  been  inhabitants 
of  Jutland,  and  that  this  tribe  of  the  invaders  settled  in  Kent, 
the  Isle  of  Wight;  and  in  Hampshire.  The  name  exhibits  all  of  the 
caprices  of  orthography  in  the  old  chronicles,  being,  "  Iveta " ; 
"  Jueta  " ;  "  Juat  "  ;  "  Juit  "  ;  "  Jewet  " ;  Jewett,  etc.  It  is  not  im- 
probable that  this  tribe  may  have  been  known  as  "  Jutes,"  and  been 
the  founders  of  our  surname.  The  change  from  "  Jute  "  to  "  Juet," 
is  slight ;  and  from  "  Jute  "  to  "  John  the  Jute,"  an  easy,  and,  it 
should  seem,  a  very  natural  one  to  designate  a  particular  person 
before  surnames  were  in  vogue. 

While  many,  and  perhaps  well  founded  doubts  have  been  ex- 
pressed regarding  the  existence  of  the  "  Jute  "  clement  as  joining 
in  the  invasion  of  England,  they  do  not,  if  proven,  discredit  this 
theory,  for  as  late  as  the  time  of  Bede  there  were  people  in  the  part 
of  England  referred  to,  who  were  known  as  a  distinct  nation  under 
the  name  of  "  Jutes."

The  name  "  Jueta,"  or  "  Iveta,"  occurs  in  the  Liber  Wint&n, 
which  contains  a  survey  of  the  city  of  Winchester,  England,  taken 
by  order  of  Henr^*  I,  between  HOT  and  1128,  and  the  Jewetts  were 
a  well  known  family  in  that  city  in  later  years.  In  the  Winchester 
Cathedral  are  to  be  found  now  several  memorial  tablets  bearing  the 
name,  and  some  of  these  bear  the  same  coat  of  arms  as  that  consid- 
ered as  belonging  to  our  family. 

The  arms  are  thus  described :  "  He  beareth  gules  on  a  cross 
argent  five  fleur  de  Us  of  the  first.  Crest:  an  eagle's  neck  between 
two  ^^-ings  displayed  argent,  by  the  name  Jewett." 

It  has  been  claimed  that  the  -fieur  de  lis  in  the  coat  of  anns 
is  an  indication,  if  not  a  proof,  of  the  French  origin  of  the  family; 
but  this  would  seem  to  be  ^nthout  great  force,  as  the  arms  of 
families  of  unquestioned  English  origin  bear  the  fleur  de  Us,  not- 
ably, ^lorrison,  Xeane  and  Ashurst. 

Gilliam  says,  of  the  fleur  de  lis :  "  This  bearing  is  the  most 
esteemed  of  all  flowers,  having  been  from  the  first,  the  charge  of 
a  Royal  escutcheon  borne  by  the  French  Kings,  though  tract  of 
time  hath  made  the  bearing  of  them  more  common." 

That  the  arms  as  described  were  those  brought  by  our  ancestors 
is  probably  beyond  dispute;  but  as  an  evidence  of  this,  the  follow- 
ing is  taken  from  the  notes  of  Charles  Coffin  Jewett: 

"An  interesting  incident  of  the  re-union  (1855)  may  be  men- 
tioned "  as  showing  "  the  aid  occasionally  furnished  by  heraldry 
to  genealogy:  Mr.  A.  D.  L.  Jewett  of  Wilkes-Barre,  Pa,  son  of 
Commodore  Jewett^  was  present.  He  stated  that  he  saw  two  days 
before,  in  a  newspaper  that  there  was  to  be  a  meeting  of  the  family 

at  Rowley He  brought  with  him  a  coat  of  arms,  evidently 

blazoned  at  the  Herald's  College,  which  had  hung  for  about  a  hun- 
dred years  in  the  house  formerly  occupied  by  his  grandfather. 
He  did  not  know  from  what  place  his  grandfather  had  emigrated, 
but  knew  his  first  name.  The  coat  of  arms  was  identical  with  our 
own,  and  his  grandfather's  name  was  found  upon  our  ancestral  tree." 

A  Jewett  family  in  England  at  the  present  time  has  armorial 
bearings  distinct  from  ours,  but  they  date  back  only  to  the  last 

That  the  Jewett  family  was  not  confined  to  Yorkshire  in  early 
days,  is  shown  by  the  following:

"  July  8,  1486.  Grant  for  life  to  Henry  Jewet  of  the  offices 
of  one  of  the  foresters  of  Windsor  forest,  called  the  '  ryding"  for- 
ester,' and  parker  of  sunnyng-hill,  wnthin  Windsor  Forest,  with  wages 
of  S  d  per  day  as  forester,  -i  d  per  day  as  parker,  out  of  the  issues 
of  Windsor  Castle,  the  wages  to  date  from  22  August  last."  ^ 

We  come  now  to  consider  the  original  immigrants  of  the  family 
in  this  country. 

Robert  Jewett,  mate  of  Henry  Hudson's  ship,  the  "  Half-]Moon," 
was  undoubtedly  the  first  of  our  name  to  see  the  new  world.  He 
made  several  voyages  with  Hudson,  but  just  how  many,  it  has  not 
been  possible  to  ascertain." 

Edward  Jewett  of  Bradford,  Yorkshire,  England,  was  'perhaps, 
the  son  of  Thomas  Jewett  and  Elizabeth  Shackellton,  married  in 
Bradford,  in  157S,  but  the  e\*idence  thus  far  adduced  is  too  slight  to 
establish  more  than  a  supposition.  He  was  the  ancestor  of  most 
of  the  Jewetts  in  this  country ;  but  nothing  is  really  kno^Ti  about 
him  beyond  the  information  given  in  his  will,  which  mentions  that  he 
was  a  "  Clothier."  The  word  clothier  does  not  imply  that  he  was 
a  maker  of  or  seller  of  Men's  clothing,  the  sense  in  which  the  word 
is  almost  universally  used  in  this  country,  but  a  maker  of  cloths, 
a  manufacturer,  and  in  that  sense  only  was  the  word  used  in  Eng- 
land until  a  comparatively  recent  date,  when  its  meaning  became 
slightly  modified.  In  his  time,  however,  the  word  had  but  one 
meaning,  the  merchant  maufacturer  of  woollen  cloth,  who  had  in  his 
employ  a  larger  or  smaller  number  of  families  engaged  in  the  var- 
ious processes  connected  therewith.  The  work  was  carried  on  in 
private  houses,  the  several  parts  of  the  process  being  conducted  by 
different  members  of  the  family,  according  to  age  and  sex,  and  the 
character  of  the  work,  and  to  this  is  attributed  the  acknowledged 
superiority  of  the  Yorkshire  fabrics. 

The  clothiers  were  considered  among  the  most  industrious  and

If,  as  we  may  suppose,  Edward  Jewett's  sons  followed  the  oc- 
cupation of  their  father,  we  may  find  in  the  condition  of  that  trade, 
an  additional  reason  for  leaving  England,  other  than  the  fact  that 
they  were  "  Non-Conformists,"  and  as  such  the  object  of  perse- 

One  ■writer  says:  "The  persecutions  of  Archbishop  Laud  seems 
to  have  fallen  Avith  peculiar  weight  upon  the  clothiers.''  Pvar, 
enumerating  the  petitions  for  redress  of  grievances  presented  to 
Parliament  in  164-0-il,  instances  "  Divers  Clothiers  having  been 
forced  away,  who  had  set  up  their  manufactures  abroad  to  the  great 
hurt  of  the  Kingdom."  Smith  in  "  The  History  of  Woolen  ]\Ianu- 
factures,"  mentions  the  rigour  of  Archbishop  Laud's  execution  of  the 
Acts  of  Conformity  as  the  cause  which  drove  many  clothiers  out  of 
the  kingdom, 

BischofF  in  his  "  History  of  Wool,"  says  :  "  Thousands  of  families 
were  frightened  out  of  Suffolk  and  Norfolk  into  New  England.'* 
The  "  ^lerchant  Adventurers  "  in  their  reply  to  the  ""  Interlopers,'* 
says  that  "  a  persecution  for  conscience  and  religion  in  1634-5,  which 
drove  many  families  of  manufacturers  out  of  the  Kingdon^,  add-d 
to  the  troubles  of  the  North  in  this  year  and  did  cast  a  damp  upon 
the  whole  woollen  trade." 

That  Edward  Jcwett  was  a  man  of  property  is  shown  by  his 
will,  which,  however,  is  a  will  of  personal  property  only;  but  a  refer- 
ence to  the  will  of  his  son,  Joseph  Jewett,  dated  15  Februarj',  1660- 
61  (Essex  Probate),  in  which  he  mentions  ...  "  all  estate  I  have 
both  in  New  England,  and  Old,  whether  personall  or  Reull,"  would 
seem  to  indicate  that  Edward  Jewett  was  possessed  of  real  estate  at 
the  time  of  his  death,  and  which  under  the  laws  of  England  would 
descend  to  his  children. 

^laximilian  and  Joseph  Jewett  came  to  America  in  the  ship 
"John  of  London,"  which  sailed  from  Hull,  in  the  autumn  of  1638, 
and  reached  Boston  December  31,  1638.  They  were  of  the  company 
brought  out  by  the  Rev.  Ezekiel  Rogers  of  Rowley,  Yorkshire;  but 
it  was  not  known  until  recent  years  that  Hull  was  their  port  of 
departure,  and  not  London,  as  had  been  supposed.  John  Camden 
Hotten  in  his  "Original  Lists  of  Persons  of  Quality,  Emigrants, 
etc.,  who  went  from  Great  Britian  to  the  American  Plantations, 
1600-lTOO,"   asks   in  the  preface:  "  ^^^lo  went   with  Rev.   Ezekiel

Rogers  from  Rowley?  "  The  fact  that  Hull  and  not  London  was  the 
sailing  port  answered  the  question  in  part ;  but  no  list  of  the  pas- 
sengers by  the  ship  "John  of  London"  is  thought  to  be  extant. 
Hotten  mentions  the  ship  "  John  of  London  "  in  his  book,  as  making 
several  vo^^ages  from  London  to  the  West  Indies,  etc.,  as  to  St.  Chris- 
tophers, 2  October  1635,  when  James  Waymouth  was  master. 

The  ship  "  John  of  London "  on  her  eventful  voyage  from 
Hull  to  Boston,  brought  the  first  printing  press  set  up  in  the  col- 
onies, and  it  has  been  frequently  stated  that  John  Pearson's  full- 
ing mill,  wliich  was  established  at  Rowley,  came  in  the  same  ship 
on  that  voyage.  This  may  be  doubted,  however,  as  Pearson's  mill 
was  not  set  up  at  Rowley  until  1643.  That  the  printing  press  was 
brought  over  at  that  time  is  unquestioned.  It  was  the  enterprise  of 
the  Rev.  Joseph  Glover,  rector,  it  is  said,  of  Sutton,  Surry,  and 
Glover's  contract  with  Stephen  Daye,  who  came  out  as  foreman, 
made  with  Daye  at  Cambridge,  7  June  163S,  provided  that  Daye 
was  to  go  to  New  England  at  Glover's  expense  in  the  ship  "  John  of 
London."  Glover  died  on  the  voyage,  and  Daye  set  up  the  press  at 
Newtowne,  now  Cambridge.  This  press  is  often  referred  to  as  hav- 
ing been  "  brought  over  for  Harvard  College  " ;  but  as  Harv-ard  Col- 
lege did  not  exist  until  1639,  when  it  received  the  name  in  considera- 
tion of  700  pounds  given  by  the  Rev.  John  Harvard,  and  as  the 
printing  press  did  not  go  there  it  was  e\'idently  never  intended  for 

The  immigrants  passed  the  winter  of  1638-9  in  Boston  and  the 
surrounding  towns.  Joseph  Jewett  and  his  wife  seem  to  have  been 
at  Dorchester,  as  their  names  appear  as  having  been  admitted  to 
the  church  there  in  1638-9.  No  mention  is  found  of  their  dismissal 
to  the  church  at  Rowley. 

During  the  winter,  Davenport  and  Eaton  endeavoured  to  per- 
suade Rogers  to  settle  in  New  Haven,  where  they  had  established 
a  colony,  and  several  members  of  Rogers  company  were  sent  there 
to  examine  the  place.  But  not  finding  it  to  their  satisfaction,  and 
Rogers  feeling  his  responsibility  "  to  many  persons  of  Quality  in 
England,  who  depended  upon  him  to  choose  a  fit  place  for  his 
people,"  counselled  with  the  Ministers  of  Massachusetts,  and  by  their 
advice,  he  and  his  people  decided  to  take  a  place  between  Ipswich 
and  Newbury,  and  a  tract  of  land  was  purchased  there  for  £800. 
It  has  been  thought  that  some  of  Rogers'  company  settled  in  New 
Haven,   a   few  of  them   afterward  joining  the   settlers    at  Rowley.

The  evidence  of  this  is,  however,  far  from  convincing,  and  as  no 
list  of  the  original  company  is  obtainable,  the  question  is  one  not 
easily  decided.  So  far  as  known  the  only  member  of  Roerer's  orie:- 
inal  company  who  did  not  settle  at  Rowley,  was  Thomas  Crosby, 
who  had  an  interest  in  the  printing  press,  and  who  remained  at 
Newtowne  with  Dayc.  Whether  the  interest  was  acquired  after  the 
death  of  Glover,  or  was  an  original  one,  is  not  known.  Crosby's 
son's  widow  went  to  Rowley,  and  was  given  a  house-lot  on  Holmes 

Maximilian  and  Joseph  Jewett  left  many  descendants.  John 
and  Abraham  Jewett,  who  appeared  in  Rowley,  "2 — 2mo. — 1661  " 
when  each  took  a  wife,  are  as  Blodgette  says:  "mysteries."  No 
previous  record  of  them  can  be  found;  but  it  is  quite  certain  that 
they  were  relatives  of  Maximilian  and  Joseph.  What  the  rela- 
tionship was  cannot  be  determined.  John  Jewett  has  many  descen- 
dants. The  line  of  Abraham  is  believed  to  have  been  extinct  for 
about  two  hundred  years. 

The  Maryland  branch  of  the  family,  which  until  recent  years 
was  looked  upon  as  a  distinct  branch  of  the  family,  are  the  de- 
scendants of  Joseph  Jewett. 

The  Wilmington,  N.  C,  family  belong  to  the  Maximilian 
branch,  the  Georgia  family  to  Joseph,  and  the  Alabama  family  to 

There  are  in  addition  to  these  several  other  families  of  the  name. 
John  Jewett,  of  Jewett,  Cumberland  county,  Tennessee,  was  bom 
in  Yorkshire,  England,  and  came  to  this  country  in  1842.  He  was 
married  at  Erie,  Pa.,  in  1850  and  removed  to  Tennessee,  where  nu- 
merous descendants  are  now  living.  Another  is  that  of  William  Jew- 
ett, born  in  England,  but  living  a  few  years  ago  in  Bucks  county, 
Pa.,  and  two  families  of  English  birth  in  Canada. 

John  R.  Jewitt,  whose  descendants  are  living,  mostly  in  Cleve- 
land, Ohio,  was  bom  in  Boston,  England,  21  Ma}',  1783.  He  was 
intended  for  a  profession,  but  abandoned  that  to  take  a  place  at 
Hull  in  his  father's  shop,  which  was  devoted  to  shipbuilding  and 
repairing.  In  1802,  he  sailed  from  Hull  in  the  American  ship 
"  Boston  "  on  a  tradincj  vovage  to  the  north-west  coast  of  Amer- 
ica.  March  22,  1803  at  Woody  Point  in  Xootka  Sound,  the  crew, 
with  the  exception  of  Jewitt,  and  the  sailmaker,  Thompson,  were 
killed  by  the  Indians.  Jewitt  and  Thompson  were  held  prisoners 
until  rescued,  July  10,  1805,  by  the  American  ship  "  Lydia  "  of  Bos-

ton,  bound  for  China,  wliithcr  the  two  men  were  taken.  Jewitt 
sailed  from  Canton  in  February,  1807,  and  reached  Boston  in 
May.  He  settled  at  Middlctown,  Conn.  In  1815,  he  publislied  a 
book  entitled:  "  Narrative  of  the  Adventures  and  SufFenngs  of  John 
R.  Jewitt,  only  Survivor  of  the  Crew  of  the  ship  '  Boston,'  During

This  is  the  only  case  kno\\-n  to  the  writer,  where  the  name  is 
spelled  Jewitt, 

The  \vi'iter  may  be  pardoned  if  before  closing  this  paper  refer- 
ence is  made  to  the  Rev.  Ezekiel  Rogers,  the  leader  of  the  com- 
pany of  which  our  ancestors  were  members.  That  he  was  a 
"  learned,  eloquent  and  pious  man  "  possessed  of  sterhng  ability, 
high  character,  and  indomitable  energy  is  conceded;  a  great  leader 
and  teacher  among  the  early  settlers.  Yet  he  seems  to  have  beeu 
sadly  neglected  by  the  historians  of  his  time.  Winslow,  Cotton 
Mather,  Johnson,  and  others  refer  to  him  frequently,  but  it  is  surpris- 
ing that  so  little  of  a  reliable  character  is  known  of  a  man  so  con- 
spicuous in  his  time,  and  to  whom,  not  only  New  England,  but  the 
whole  country  is  so  greatly  indebted.  This,  however,  is  not  the  time 
nor  the  place  for  an  extended  notice,  but  the  writer  hopes  to  be  per- 
mitted to  present  in  a  future  issue  an  article  devoted  to  this  sub- 
ject only.

By  Chakles  A.  Hoppin 

Ridgeway  House,  Stapleton,  Bristol,  England  was  the  English 
ancestral  home  of  James  Llo^-d,  Esq.,  the  Boston,  ]\Iass.  merchant 
of  1675-90,  and  Lord  of  the  Manor  of  Queens  Village,  Lloyd's 
Neck,  Long  Island.  This  old  Manor  House  was  visited  by  me  in 
behalf  of  T.  Guilford  Smith,  L.L.D.,  of  Buffalo,  New  York.,  a  de- 
scendant of  James  Lloyd,  Esq.,  of  Boston,  Massachusetts,  who  is 
proven  to  have  been  a  son  of  Sir  John  Lloyd,  Knight,  of  Ridgeway 
and  Bristol,  England.  It  is  through  the  courtesy  of  Dr.  Smith 
that  the  ^^-riter  is  permitted  to  publicly  refer  briefly  to  this  interest- 
ing famil}'.  James  Lloyd,  Esq.,  appeared  at  Boston  about  the  year 
1675,  marrying  firstly  Grissell  Sylvester,  daughter  of  Nathaniel 
Sylvester,  Esq.  of  Shelter  Island,  and  secondly  a  daughter  of  Gov. 
John  Leverett. 

So  great  has  been  the  growth  of  the  city  of  Bristol,  since  Sir 
John  Llo3-d  resided  at  Ridgeway  Manor  House  in  1680,  some  two 
miles  north-east  of  the  center  of  Bristol,  England,  and  since  his  son 
James  died  at  Boston,  Massachusetts,  that  the  hope,  aroused  by  the 
mention  of  this  property  in  his  will  of  1680  as  being  then  his  resi- 
dence, of  finding  any  trace  of  the  mansion  has  seemed  infinitesimal. 
Like  a  wave  the  people  have  swept  eastward,  from  ^-ithout  the 
old  city  walls,  leaving  a  deposit  of  buildings  built  solidly  together 
for  miles,  unbroken  save  for  the  intersection  of  streets.  Inquiry 
in  the  heart  of  the  city  for  Ridgeway  Manor  House  found  no  one 
who  could  recall  having  seen  it.  Not  even  the  memory  of  it  seemed 
to  exist  in  the  busy  city  streets.  There  seemed  to  be  just  a  chance 
that  some  occupant  might  have  so  cared  for  the  old  place  as  to  hold 
it,  as  a  fortress,  against  the  human  sea  that  surged  all  about  it 
leaving  ridges  of  stone  and  brick  to  hide  it  from  view.  "  Ridgeway 
Park,"  "  Ridgeway  Road,"  appearing  in  the  city  directory  started 
the  searcher  over  the  city  border  into  the  former  parish  of  Staple- 
ton,  now  a  part  of  Bristol.  Three  miles  of  the  way  out  Fishpond's 
Road  by  electric  tramway,  past  the  park,  revealed  no  signs  of  an- 
tiquity;  solid  blocks    of  buildings   alone    appear.     But   Ridgeway

House,  surmised  the  seeker,  must  have  stood  back  from  the  highway 
with  a  noble  driveway  leading  to  it.  Perhaps  it  will  be  found  down 
some  one  of  the  short  streets  leading  off  Fishpond's  Road,  north- 
wards, towards  tlie  fields  sloping  down  to  the  httle  "  River  Frooni  " 
in  the  valley  that  separates  the  long  hill  upon  which  Fishpond's 
Road  stretches  eastward,  from  the  Church  of  Stapleton  and  it's 
affectionate  cluster  of  old  houses  set  in  a  nook  upon  the  opposite 
hillside  to  the  North.  At  the  end  of  one  of  these  modem  streets, 
just  bevond  and  almost  behind  the  last  brick  house  of  the  lon<^  row 
upon   the  right,  was   espied   an   ancient  roof  behind  trees. 

This  was  the  western  end  of  the  house.  Turning  from  the 
end  of  the  modem  street  a  walk  leads  through  tall  shrubbery  to  a 
wide  gate  of  iron.  Entering  and  turning  sharply  round  to  the  right, 
in  full  view  of  an  exquisite  lawn  bordered  with  flowers  and  trees, 
the  facade  of  a  very  old  house  suddenly  presents  itself.  Instantly 
the  visitor  is  in  quite  another  world,  and  surely  in  another  time  in 
the  courtj^ard  of  this  domestic  antique.  A  lady  playing  at  croquet 
with  two  young  bo^'s,  crosses  the  lawn,  giving  opportunity  for  the 
^^sitor's  query — "Can  this  be  Ridgeway  ^lanor  House?"  "Yes, 
indeed,  it  is,  though  much  of  it,  and  of  the  gardens,  are  gone!" 

"  And  is  this  the  same  Ridgeway  House  that  was  occupied  by 
Sir  John  Lloyd,  INIayor  of  Bristol  in  1678?"  "Oh,  it  is  much 
older  than  that !  My  mother  has  heard  of  the  Lloyds  being  here. 
We  have  thought  that  they  had  the  lease  of  it;  we  imagine  that 
some  one  of  the  Dukes  of  Beaufort  used  it  somewhere  about  that 
time  or  afterwards.  You  can  see  the  Beaufort's  "  Stoke  House  " 
over  there  on  the  hill.     Would  you  like  to  see  the  interior?  "  <  ,  •, 

"  Perhaps  I  had  better  do  so  now,  for  it  ma}'  be  now  or  never, 
judging  by  the  intrusions  hereabouts  of  the  greedy  city." 

The  visitor  passed  a  pleasant  two  hours  at  inspection  of  the 
premises  and  listened  to  a  repetition  of  some  of  the  traditions  of 
Ridgeway  House,  being  cordially  invited  to  tea  in  what  was  likely 
the  old  drawing-room. 

This  venerable  house !  What  a  contemplation  it  creates ! — 
sole  monument  to  the  dead,  its  one-time  occupants.  They  have 
gone;  their  home  remains, — still  sheltering  those  who  care  for  it, 
as  it  has  ever  done,  from  the  vexations  of  the  world, — as  a  peaceful 
retreat,  as  a  friend,  which  old  custom  has  made  sweet.  Scores  of 
people  have  been  bom  within  these  walls.  Many  have  married,  and,

their  being  here.  Life's  history  has  been  repeated  within  this 
dwelling  o'er  and  o'er.  Families  unkno^^^l  to  each  other,  one  after 
the  other,  have  abided  here.  Thousands  must  be  the  descendants 
now  living,  whose  ancestors  called  this  place  their  home.  And  into 
what  remote  regions  of  the  earth  have  some  of  the  descendants  wan- 
dered! What  a  place  it  is  for  them  to  come  back  to  on  a  pilgrim- 
age! And  what  a  host,  if  all  were  gathered  here  together!  What 
laughter,  and  what  tears  !  But  they  must  come  soon  !  Indeed,  "  the 
stones  have  voices,  and  the  walls   do  live." 

Ridgeway  House  is  the  shrine  of  the  Lloyds — the  sole  existing 
relic  of  its  kind  of  Sir  John  Lloyd  in  the  world  to-day ;  the  only 
visible  link  uniting  the  Present  ^vith  the  shrouded  Past  of  this 
family.  Such  is  this  house.  Maj"-  we  not  therefore  dwell  upon  it, 
in  fond  contemplation,  since  we  cannot  well  now  dwell  within   it? 

Many  of  the  external  features  are  the  same  as  when  first  built, 
save  the  altering  of  the  roof.  The  stone  door  is  unaltered.  The 
windows  of  small  panes  of  glass,  leaded  and  swinging  outward,  seem 
equally  old.  The  external  plaster,  even,  may  have  long  covered  the 
brick  walls.  Some  portions  of  the  rear  have  been  recently  pulled 
down.  The  entrance  hall  is  of  good  size,  panelled  in  oak.  The  stair- 
case remains  as  it  was  first  built,  save  the  addition  of  paint  over  the 
oak.  The  presence  of  paint  upon  the  wood,  while  unfortunate,  is 
evidence  that  the  oak  was  old  and  dark  when  first  painted.  It  is  be- 
lieved to  have  been  originally  painted  some  time  ago,  perhaps  an  hun- 
dred years,  when  old  oak  was  so  common  that  the  addition  of  paint,  of 
a  lighter  color,  was  then  considered  a  modem  improvement. 

The  present  occupant  of  the  house  admits  having  "  designs  '* 
upon  that  paint. 

Ridgeway  House  is  the  only  ancient  habitation  in  this  part  of 
Bristol.  From  its  garden  front  the  outlook  northward  shows  but  little 
of  the  modernity  near  by.  It  is  onlj^  at  the  rear  that  the  city  has 
rolled  up  to  within  a  few  feet,  threatening  to  advance  still  further,  and 
ere  long,  remorselessly  to  put  an  end  to  this  sturdy  structure  that 
seems  to  silently  insist  upon  its  Avell-eamed  right  to  be  respected. 
Ridgeway  House  ever  has  been  a  gentleman's  seat;  it  so  continues. 
Better  it  were  that  it  fall,  grandly,  than  to  belie  its  history  with  less 
noble  uses.  It  was  built  before  the  fleet  under  Drake  fought  the  Ar- 
mada of  Spain,  before  Sir  Walter  Raleigh  became  the  adventurous 
spirit  of  the  age,  before  Shakespeare  made  new  the  Lyric  world,  be- 
fore Elizabeth,  before  the  Reformation,  before  Christopher  Columbus

reached  America.  Its  early  occupant  was  here  to  hear  of  the  discov- 
ery of  the  continent  of  North  America  b}'  John  and  Sebastian  Cabot 
of  this  same  Bristol,  to  whose  memory  there  is  the  great  modem  tower 
upon  the  hill,  overlooking  the  city,  the  harbor,  and  the  River  Avon, 
where  it  turns  between  the  great  cliffs  of  Clifton  to  find  the  sea. 
James  Lloyd,  who  founded  his  family  in  America,  we  believe  was  born 
in  Ridgeway  House,  and  baptised  in  Stapleton  Church,  in  view  across 
the  vale.  The  history  of  this  house  reaches  back  to  the  time  when 
Edward  IV.  was  King  of  England,  for  there  is  mention  of  it  in 
1475,  when  one  Nicholas  Barstable  was  lord  of  the  manor.  The 
History  of  ^langotsfield  and  Do\^-nen,  by  Rev.  A.  Emlyn  Jones, 
says :  "  In  1540  Edward,  Earl  of  Hereford,  was  the  o^\■Tlcr  of  Ridge- 
way House,  and  in  the  time  of  Elizabeth  (1558)  it  belonged  to 
Matthew  Smythe  of  Long  Ashton.  The  extensive  outbuildings  have 
all  been  since  swept  away.  There  were  fonnerly  some  fine  cedars 
on  the  old  lawn."  To-day  only  one  cedar  is  left.  In  an  article 
published  in  the  Bristol  Obser\'er,  Saturday,  April  27,  1909,  and 
entitled,  "  In  and  Around  Fishponds  "  occurs  this  reference: 

"  An  old  historic  manor  house  that  will  probably  be  swept 
away  in  a  few  years,  in  order  to  make  way  for  rows  of  modem 
houses,  is  the  Ridgeway  ]Manor  House,  just  beyond  Eastville  Park. 
Standing  off  the  main  road,  with  new  houses  springing  up  all  around 
it,  and  with  the  Ridgeway  Cemetery  behind,  there  are  thousands  of 
Bristolians  who  have  never  seen  it,  or  are  unaware  of  how  big  and 
imposing  this  residence  once  was,  with  its  long  gardens  and  stately 
walks.  A  portion  of  the  original  estate  was  acquired  by  tlie  Ridge- 
way Cemetery  Company.  The  old  kitchen  garden  became  a  nursery 
(horticultural)  and  the  ladies'  garden  was  converted  into  a  burying 
ground.  The  house  was  once  used  as  a  school  and  W.  G.  Grace, 
the  cricketer  (living  1909)  received  instruction  there.  Formerly 
the  lawn  stretched  down  to  the  River  Froom.  Although  all  these 
fine  gardens  have  long  since  disappeared  (save  about  an  acre), 
there  yet  remains,  inside  the  house,  traces  of  its  past  greatness, 
such  as  the  fine  hall,  the  staircase  with  its  carved  newels,  and  the  solid 
woodwork.  If  one  of  the  old  tenants  of  the  house  could  come  back 
from  the  seventeenth  century,  he  would  probably  not  admire  modem 
taste,  when  he  discovered  the  old  oak  woodwork  painted  a  grey 
colour.  Tlie  fine  cedars  have  gone,  the  picturesque  gardens  are  no 
more,  the  oak  woodwork  is  painted  over,  the  outbuildings  have  van- 
ished, only  the  old  ]Manor  House  remains  and  even  that  has  its 
days  of  existence  numbered."

Notwithstanding  this  lamentation,  the  present  writer  finds  the 
place  still  attractive,  inviting  and  of  itself,  apart  from  its  surround- 
ings, agreeable  as  an  abode.  The  central  features  are  as  vital  as 
u  ever.      Over  the  tea-cup  the  present  occupant  of  Ridgeway  House 

^  repeated  the  tradition  that  in  the  time  of  the  Commonwealth,  Oliver 

^  Cromwell  visited  the  house.     This  was  about  the  time  of  the  birth 

of  James  Lloyd.  It  may  be  doubted,  if  the  latter's  father  was  in 
.  possession  here  then,  that  Cromwell's  ^^sit  was  a  friendly  one.      Sir 

John  Lloyd  may  have  been  neutral,  or  even  have  expressed  sympathy 
with  the  government  of  the  Commonwealth  during  and  after  the 
Civil  War  (1648-1660)  for  we  find  no  record  of  his  having  been 
summoned  before,  or  proceeded  against,  by  the  Committee  of  Se- 
questration of  the  estates  of  Loyalists.  However,  it  is  plain  that 
Sir  John  received  the  honor  of  knighthood  from  Charles  II.  in  1678, 
to  whom  he  expressed  the  loyal  respect  due  to  his  sovereign. 

Joseph  Lloyd,  son  of  James  Lloyd  of  Boston,  Mass.,  on  his 
visit  to  England  about  1714-,  may  have  come  to  Ridgeway  House. 
His  brother,  Henry  Lloyd,  of  Lloyd's  Neck,  Queen's  Village,  Long 
Island,  left  papers,  (now  in  Lloyd  Papers,  N.  Y.  Historical  Society) 
mentioning  "  Ridgeway "  and  suggesting  that  "  Lady  Lloyd " 
widow  (second  wife)  of  Sir  John  was  still  living  in  1714,  and  that 
his  uncle  Henry  Lloj-d  was  of  Ridgewav. 

This  leads  one  to  ask:  Did  William  Penn  visit  Ridgeway  House, 
when  he  was  in  Bristol,  after  marrying  Hannah  Callowhill,  the 
relative  of  Elizabeth  Callowhill,  first  wife  to  Sir  John  Lloyd  and 
mother  of  James  Lloyd,  the  emigrant  to  America?  It  is  to  be  be- 
heved  that  had  Sir  John  lived  until  this  marriage  of  Penn's,  he 
would  scarcely  have  failed  to  tender  the  hospitality  of  his  house  to 
that   great   commoner. 

We  may  refer  to  the  will  of  Sir  John  Lloyd,  to  the  extent 
^     of  quoting  from  it,  that  he  refers  to  Ridgeway  in  these  words: 

"  I,  Sr  John  Lloyd  of  the  Citty  of  Bristoll,  Knight." 

"  All  that  my  capitalc  ]\Icssuage,  Mansion  House  or  fFaiine- 
place  called  Rudgeway  also  Ridgeway  situate  and  being  with  in  the 
parish  of  Stapleton  in  the  county  of  Gloucs.,  now  in  the  holding 
of  me  or  my  under  tenants "  *  *  *  *  and  all  and  singular  the 
■;  messuages,  lands,  tenements,  and  hereditaments  within  the  parish 
of  Stapleton  whereof  or  wherein  I  was  then  seized  of  any  Estate 
of  inheritence."  He  gave  all  his  right  therein  to  his  wife.  Lady 
Anne,  and  after  her  death  to  his  son,  Henry  Lloyd,  while  to  his 

f/ii  ■.;-»<.''. 

\  t 

J     ir:': 


son  John,  he  gave  "  two  houses   and  nyne  cottages   in   the   Horse 
ffaire,  Bristol." 

As  to  the  son  James,  the  testator  declared  that  the  reason  he 
bequeathed  nothing  to  him  was  that  he  already'  had  sufficiently 
provided  for  him.  Sir  Jolm  attended  the  aristocratic  St.  James' 
Church  in  Bristol,  where  he  was  buried,  as  the  register  shows. 

"  Burial.  1680  ffebruar  11,  Sir  Jolin  Loyd  of  Stapleton 

His  will  directed: — "  And  my  Body  I  comit  to  the  Earth  to  be 
decenth'  interred  in  the  churchyard  of  the  parish  church  of  St. 
James  in  Bristoll  under  the  tomb  there  where  my  Relacons  lye." 

As  to  those  relations  it  would  be  a  long  diversion  to  refer  to 
them  now  unless  briefly.  Sir  John  Lloyd's  father  was  Thomas 
Lloyd,  a  wealthy  brewer  of  Bristol  and  his  mother  was  Elizabeth 
Gibbs.  They  were  married  in  Christ  Church,  Bristol,  "  1605,  aprill 
14.  Thomas  lloyd,  bruer,  and  Elizabeth  Gibbes,  senglewoman 
were  maryed." 

She  was  the  daughter  of  anothei'  noted  citizen  of  Bristol, 
Henry  Gibbs,  Esq.,  to  whose  memory  there  still  exists  in  St.  James 
Church  a  most  novel  memorial  of  brass,  framed  in  stone  and  depict- 
ing Alderman  Henry  Gibbs,  his  wife  and  their  daughters  all  kneel- 
ing before  an  altar.  The  father  of  Thomas  Lloyd  was  a  physician 
to  Queen  Elizabeth. 

Bristol  is  indeed  delightful  gi-ound  for  the  visit  of  American 
descendants  of  James  Lloyd,  Esq.,  of  Boston,  Mass. 

The  old  St.  Peter's  Hospital,  of  which  Sir  John  Lloyd  was  a 
councillor,  is  one  of  the  city's  most  famous  architectural  treasures. 
The  sword  used  by  Sir  John  is  presers-ed  at  the  Guildhall ;  and  the 
Mayor's  Chapel  is  worth  a  visit, 

Ridgeway  House  has  its  ghost  stories,  but  after  listening  to 
them,  the  v-riter,  more  amused  than  credulous,  deems  them  worth 
only  the  mere  mention.  Right  in  the  world  of  the  city,  but  not  of 
it,  an  old  jewel  robbed  of  its  setting,  still  reflecting  on  every  facet, 
as  in  a  crystal,  the  long  story  of  its  life,  Ridgeway  House  is  more 
than  a  house ;  it  is  a  home — the  home  of  all  Lloyd  homes.  It  is  a 
"keep"  of  treasured  history,  yet  none  the  less  of  homely  virtues, 
bastioned  with  domestic  love,  and  fortified  against  the  world  by 
honest  endeavors— a  home,  the  draw-bridge  of  which  ever  has  been 
down  for  the  feet  of  the  pure  in  heart,— the  only  passport  of  entry

By  Edith  May  Tilley 

When  the  British  evacuated  Newport,  in  1779,  they  carried 
the  Newport  town  records  with  them,  but  the  vessel  "was  wrecked 
in  Hell  Gate  and  the  records  were  lost.  After  remaining  in  the 
water  for  several  days,  they  were  rescued  and  carried  to  New  York, 
where  they  were  carelessly  packed  away  in  a  store-house  for  two 
years.  Finally,  through  the  influence  of  General  Washington  and 
Governor  Clinton,  they  were  restored  to  Ne^-port,  but  at  a  time 
when  almost  no  care  could  be  given  to  them,  and  it  was  not  until 
1894i  that  work  was  begun  on  the  preser\'ation  of  these  water-soaked 
and  badly  damaged  papers.  The  work  is  still  being  continued  and 
many  of  the  records  have  been  arranged,  preserved  and  rebound. 
The  following  abstracts  are  taken  from  Volume  Two  of  the  re- 
bound Town  Council  records :

224  "'  ::  THE    GEAFTON    MAGAZINE 

By  the  Rev.  Elias  Boudixot  Stockton,  S.T.B.         -  '  "^ 

The  Rev.  Thcodorus  Jacobus  Frelinghuysen  was  bom  in  East 
Friesland,  Germany,  now  the  northwest  part  of  the  province  of 
Hanover,  about  1691.  His  father  was  the  Rev.  Johannes  Henricus 
Frelinghuysen,  pastor  of  the  Dutch  Reformed  Church  in  his  son's 
birthplace,  and  his  brother  was  Matthias  David  Frelinghuysen,  who 
settled  at  Hortigen,  Holland.  His  early  education  and  his  prepara- 
tion for  the  sacred  ministry  were  given  to  him  by  his  father  and  the 
Rev.  Otto  Verbruggo,  afterwards  professor  of  theology  and  oriental 
languages  at  Groningen.  In  1717,  he  was  ordained  by  the  Classis 
of  Embden,  his  examiner  being  the  Rev.  Johannes  Brunius ;  and  in 
the  follo^nng  year,  we  find  this  minute,  under  date  of  June  o,  1718, 
in  the  Acts  of  Classis  of  Amsterdam:  "Rev.  Mattliias  Winterwyck, 
minister  at  Alphen,  together  with  the  Messrs.  Banker  and  van  der 
Meulen,  appeared  before  the  Classis  and  exhibited  an  instrument 
from  the  congregation  at  Raritan,  in  the  province  of  New  Jersey, 
by  which  they  are  authorized  to  call  a  minister  for  those  churches. 
They  declared  that  they  had  chosen  for  this  purpose,  the  Rev.  Theo- 
dorus  Jacobus  Frielinghuysen,  formerly  minister  at  Lochimer  Voor- 
werk,  in  East  Friesland,  now  co-rector  at  Enckhuj'sen,  with  the  re- 
quest that  the  Classis  would  please  to  approve  this  call,  and  ordain 
him  to  the  sacred  ministr3\  Whereupon  the  Rev.  Frielinghuysen, 
having  come  within,  declared  that  he  accepted  said  call  in  the  fear 
of  the  Lord.  He  handed  in  at  the  same  time  an  excellent  testimonial 
from  the  Coetus  of  P^mbden.  The  Classis  having  taken  all  thinss 
into  consideration,  approved  the  call,  and  ordained  him  to  the  sacred 
ministry.  He  also  signed  the  Fonnulas  of  Concord,  and  promised  to 
correspond  with  the  Classis."  (Vol.  x.,  page  99.).  About  a  year 
after  this,  the  Synod  of  North  Holland,  in  Article  35  of  its  session 
of  July- August,  1719,  notes  in  its  classical  changes:  "Sent  to 
Raritan  in  the  province  of  New  Jersey:  Rev.  Jacobus  Theodorus  van 
Frylinghuj-sen  "  (New  York  State  Eccl.  Records  2141);  and  six 
months  later,  in  the  beginning  of  January,  1720,  he  landed  in  New 
York  from  the  ship  King  George,  Captain  Jacob  Goelet,  master; 
and  January  17,  1720,  he  held  his  first  public  service  and  received

his  recognition  by  the  American  Dutch  Church,  preaching  for  the 
Rev.  Henry  Boel  in  one  of  the  Collegiate  churches  of  the  city. 

Shortly  after  assuming  charge  of  the  churches  on  the  Raritan, 
Frelinghuysen  preached  three  sermons:  1,  on  Isaiah  66:2,  "The 
poor  and  contrite,  God's  temple  " ;  2,  on  1  Corinthians  11 :  29,  "  The 
acceptable  communicant";  and  3,  on  St.  Matthew  16:19,  "The 
Church's  duty  to  her  members."  In  these  he  laid  great  stress  on 
the  propositions  that  true  piety  will  manifest  itself  in  a  godly  life ; 
that  the  real  Christian  will  detach  himself  as  much  as  may  be  from 
the  things  of  this  world  and  cultivate  the  spirit  as  well  as  the  forms 
of  prayer;  that  only  such  as  are  strinng  to  do  this  are  wortliy  par- 
takers of  the  Lord's  Table;  and  that  it  is  the  duty  of  the  church 
to  exclude  from  the  Sacrament  all  that  are  unworth}-.  This  teach- 
ing was  perfectly  orthodox,  and  agreed  \vith  that  of  the  most  emi- 
nent divines  in  Holland,  and  also  with  the  great  body  of  Presby- 
terian divinity  in  Europe  and  America,  both  before  and  after  his 
time ;  but,  enforced  as  it  was  in  his  parochial  ministrations  and  prac- 
tice, it  gave  great  offense,  a  number  withdrew  from  Ills  ministry  and 
defended  their  step  by  saying  his  teaching  was  heretical.  As  usual, 
all  sorts  of  gossipy  slanders  arose,  and  wliile  refusing  to  vindicate 
himself  from  these,  Frelinghuysen,  at  the  urging  of  some  of  his 
friends,  had  his  sermons  "  printed  at  New  York  by  Wm.  Bradford, 
1721."  The  preface  is  dated  June  15;  and  the  sermons  are  strongly 
endorsed  by  the  Rev.  William  Bertholf,  Frelinghuyscn's  predecessor, 
and  the  Rev.  Bernard  Freeman  of  Long  Island.  ^Meanwhile  the  ag- 
grieved persons  had  sought  an  alliance  with  the  Rev.  Henr}"  Boel, 
■who  had  taken  umbrage  at  a  letter  which  Frelinghuysen  had  written 
him,  and  Boel's  colleague,  the  Rev.  Walter  Du  Bois ;  and  the  same 
ship  that  bore  the  sermons  to  the  mother  country  carried  also  to 
the  Classis  of  Amsterdam  those  Dominies'  testimony  to  a  gossipy 
charge  that  in  Holland  Frelinghuysen  had  insulted  Mr.  W.  Bancker 
by  disparaging  his  nephew;  and  that  "while  at  sea,  Rev.  Friling- 
huysen  had  condemned  most  of  the  preachers  in  Holland;  and  also 
declared  that  he  thought  but  little  of  those  at  Amsterdam"  (Classis 
of  Amsterdam,  Corresp.  from  Amer. ;  New  York  Eccl.  Records  2182- 
2184).  These  charges,  apparently,  were  at  first  dismissed;  the  ser- 
mons were  approved  by  the  university  of  Groningen,  and  later  on, 
when  the  controversy  assumed  a  more  serious  phase,  one  of  its  pro- 
fessors, the  Rev.  Johannes  Verschuir,  published  his  "  Truth  Tri- 
umphant"  in  Frelinghuyscn's  behalf.  ,..,.'

For  about  two  years  the  disaffection  steadily  grew,  intensified 
probably  by  the  fact  tliat  Frelinghuysen's  evangelical  zeal  and  labors 
■were  being  cro\\^led  with  marked  success,  and  that  he  was  gathering 
around  him  a  strono-  bodv  of  adherents  in  whose  conversion  he  had 
been  instrumental,  and  whose  practical  self-denying  lives  were  a 
standing  rebuke  to  the  formal  religion  and  easy-going  lives  of  their 
neighbors.  Finally,  IVIarch  12,  1723,  Pietcr  Du  Mont,  Symon  Wyck- 
ofF  and  Hendrick  ^'room  tried  to  enlist  on  their  side  the  Rev.  Bernard 
Freeman,  who  would  have  nothing  to  do  with  them,  telling  them 
very  plainly,  "  Now  do  I  perceive  that  you  are  all  affected  by  the 
spirit  of  hatred  and  revenge.  Because  he  sharply  exposes  sin,  you 
try  to  help  the  de%'il  .  .  .  therefore  I  will  have  nothing  to  do  with 
you  except  for  the  establishment  of  peace;  and  that  you  follow  the 
advice  to  appear  with  your  complaints  before  your  Consistory;  and 
that  you  receive  a  written  answer,  by  wliich  it  shall  be  sho^vTl  whether 
your  pastor  teaches  true  or  false  doctrines."  (New  York  Eccl. 
Records  2197-2200.) 

By  this  time  matters  had  reached  such  a  point  that  Freling- 
huysen  and  his  consistories,  after  obtaining  a  sworn  statement  from 
Dominie  Freeman  in  regard  to  the  above  mentioned  -visit,  took  the 
matter  formally  up,  and  issued,  March  28,  May  9,  and  ^lay  22, 
1723,  three  "  Citations  ...  to  the  Heads  and  Leaders  of  the 
Separate  and  Seceded  Congregation,"  specifying  Du  ^Nlont,  Wyckoff 
and  Vroom  as  the  persons  they  mean,  and  calling  upon  them  to 
appear  before  the  Consistory  and  prove  their  charges.  (New  York 
Eccl.  Records  2201-2212.)  On  their  ignoring  these  Citations  and 
continuing  as  before,  Frclinghuysen  and  his  Consistory  disciplined 
four  of  them  by  excommunication,  "  so  that  his  sacred  ministrations 
might  be  freed  from  slander  before  the  Governor."  (Letter  of  the 
Rev.  Bernardus  Freeman  to  the  Chassis  of  Amsterdam,  New  York 
Portfolio  Vol.  T. ;  New  York  Eccl.  Records  2307-2308,)  The  oppo- 
sition now  determined  to  systematize  their  efforts,  and  to  this  end 
they  appointed  the  four  excommunicants,  Du  ^lont,  \Vyckoff,  Vroom 
and  Daniel  Sebring  a  committee  "  to  correspond  with  Revs.  Du  Bois, 
Antonides,  Boel,  and  others,  who  might  be  pleased  to  help  us  accord- 
ing to  the  Rules  of  the  Church  ...  to  defend  ourselves  publicly 
in  print,  and  choose  our  own  time  to  do  this."  For  two  years,  until 
February  or  March,  1725,  nothing  more  seems  to  be  heard  from 
them.     Then  they  published  their  famous  "  Complaint,"  or  "  Re-

ply,"  *  in  vrhich  they  scored  not  only  Frelinghuysen  and  his  Con- 
sistory, but  also  those  who  were  friendly  to  him,  especially  Dominies 
Freeman  and*  Cornelius  Van  Santvoordt. 

This  document,  "  printed  in  New  York  by  William  Bradford 
and  J.  Peter  Zenger,"  is  a  volume  of  146  pages;  an  English  transla- 
tion of  it  in  the  archives  of  the  General  Synod  covers  323  pa^cs 
of  manuscript.  A  few  advance  copies  of  the  "  Citations  "  and  the 
"  Reply  "  proper  were  first  printed.  One  of  these  fell  into  Freeman's 
hands  and  he  immediately  answered  it  with  his  "  Defense,"  a  pam- 
phlet of  125  pages,  and  despatched  both  together  with  a  letter  to  tlie 
Classis  of  Amsterdam.  The  complainants  met  this  by  adding  a  six- 
teen-page preface;  and  then  finding  that  their  book  was  not  having 
the  effect  thej'  intended — Freeman  says  "  It  is  scorned  by  all  honest 
people.  Meanwhile  God  blesses  the  ministry  of  Rev.  Frelinghuysen 
with  many  exhibitions  of  genuine  piety  " — they  procured  from  cer- 
tain ministers  a  declaration  "  justifying  the  complainants  in  publish- 
ing their  volume."  This  is  signed  by  Dominies  Walter  Du  Bois  of 
New  York,  Vincent  Antonides  of  Long  Island,  Petrus  Vas  of  Kings- 
ton, and  Henry  Boel;  while  Dominie  Petrus  Van  Driessen  of  Albany 
**  prays  that  a  blessing  may  rest  on  the  finished  work,"  and  Dominie 
Thomas  Brouwer  of  Schenectady  "  gives  assurance  of  his  high  re- 
gard" for  the  work.  To  all  this  the  complainants  added  a  set  of 
poems  more  or  less  ironical,  ridiculing  Frelinghuysen's  position  for 
demanding  his  style  of  piety,  commending  those  who  are  supposed 
to  hold  fast  to  the  "  established  forms  of  doctrine  and  discipline  of 
the  Dutch  church,  and  bidding  the  "  Complaint  "  go  forth  on  its 
mission.  Then  they  despatch  the  completed  work  to  the  Classis  at 
Amsterdam  in  such  haste  that  they  are  obliged  to  follow  it  on  the 

*  (New  York  Eccl.  Records  2244).     The  title  reads: 

"Complaint  (Klagte)  of  certain  members  of  the  Dutch  Reformed  Church, 
residing  at  Raritan,  etc.,  in  the  Province  of  New  Jersey,  in  North  America, 
under  the  Crown  of  Great  Britain,  concerning  the  conduct,  there  and  else- 
where of  Rev.  Theodorus  Jacobus  Frilinghuisen  and  his  Consistor}':

There  is  a  copy  of  this  book  in  the  Sage  L'brarj',  New  Brunswick;  also  Mr. 
William  Nelson,  of  Paterson  has  a  copy;  and  about  a  half  dozen  others  are  in

next  ship  with  a  letter  of  apology  and  explanation  (New  York  Eccl. 
Records  2333-2335)  ;  while  Dominie  Van  Santvoordt  publishes  a 
second  answer  under  the  title  of  a  "  Dialogue  between  Considerans 
and  Candidus,"  the  first  representing  the  Frelinghuysen  side  and 
the  latter  his  opponents,  and  presenting  another  inside  view  of  the 
whole  controversy. 

This  "Complaint"  (Now  York  Ecch  Records  234S-2351), 
which  is  evidently  the  work  of  a  shrewd  lawyer,  and  is  almost 
certainly  the  composition  of  lawyer  Boel,  the  Dominie's  brother, 
whose  handiwork  is  also  clearly  marked  in  the  complainants' 
letters  to  Holland,  puts  an  entirely  new  phase  upon  the  dispute. 
At  this  date  there  were  in  New  York  and  New  Jersey  but 
seven  Dutch  ministers:  besides  Frelinglmyscn,  Bertholf,  now  en- 
feebled and  soon  to  be  superseded  at  Acquackononck;  Du  Bois  and 
Boel  in  New  York,  Freeman  and  Antonidcs  on  Long  Island,  and  "\'an 
Santvoordt  on  Statcn  Island.  These  fevr  men  could  not  possibly 
meet  the  needs  of  the  constantly  increasing  population  of  the  terri- 
tory under  their  charge:  and  Frelinghuysen,  Freeman  and  Van 
Santvoordt  clearly  foresaw  that  radical  chanfjcs  must  be  brouo-ht 
about  to  make  the  church's  work  effective.  More  ministers  than 
could  be  obtained  from  Europe  were  a  necessity;  and  a  more  com- 
plete oganization  vriih  large  powers  of  self-government  to  control 
the  unruly  and  meet  the  exigencies  of  the  times  was  imperative. 
These  changes  could  not  be  wrought  at  once,  and  meanwhile  some- 
thing must  be  done  even  if  the  letter  of  the  canons  was  infringed 
or  broken.  On  the  other  hand,  the  remaining  ministers  represented 
the  ultra-conservative  element,  which  was  afraid  of  innovation  and 
believed  that  exact  order,  forms  and  rules  must  be  maintained  at 
any  expense  of  convenience  or  progress.  The  "  Complaint,"  while 
it  professes  to  be  simply  an  appeal  for  justice  against  the  high- 
handed and  unprincipled  acts  of  a  teacher  of  false  doctrine,. skilfully 
insinuates  throughout  that  Frelinghuysen  and  his  adherents  are 
dangerous  innovators  and  destroyers  of  established  forms  and  as 
holding  the  Chassis  and  the  Reformed  religion  in  great  contempt; 
and  in  their  letter  of  explanation  to  the  Chassis  the  complainants 
urge  this  even  more  explicitly.  It  is  a  masterly  retreat  from  an 
absolutely  indefensible  position  to  a  battleground  of  politics  and 
society,  as  well  as  religion,  which  has  in  all  ages  been  fought  over 
with  varying  success :  it  is  no  longer  a  conflict  between  a  parish  and 
certain  of  her  disciplined  members;  it  has  become  the  old  struo'gle 

o/.K   •■^'/r-'i A.J j  .iri:  <^S?Si

between  conservatism  and  radicalism  in  the  church;  from  now  on  it 
is  really  a  question  of  home  rule  versus  imperial  control. 

The  Classis  reduced  the  "  Complaint  "  to  seventeen  specific  ac- 
cusations (New  York  Eccl.  Records  2351-2356)  and,  having-  asked 
for  and  received  Frelinghuysen's  answer  thereto,  twenty  folio  pai^s 
(Classis  of  Amsterdam,  New  York  Portfolio  ^'ol.  I.),  they  decided 
that  "  the  difficulty  seems  chiefly  to  have  been  opposition  to  Rev. 
Friedlinghu3'sen,  and  his  manner  of  saying  and  doing  things  " ;  that 
he  had  no  right  to  excommunicate  "  without  the  previous  knowledge 
of  the  Classis  " ;  that  the  accusation  of  heterodoxy  was  "  flippant," 
and  that  the  complainants  had  been  guilty  of  "  misrepresentations 
of  even  the  most  unimportant  Avords  and  deeds."  Thev,  however,  re- 
served any  final  decision  in  the  interests  of  peace  and  justice,  and 
"because  both  sides  seem  to  desire  to  debate  concerning  our  Tri- 
bunal and  our  ecclesiastical  jurisdiction;  and  under  a  foreign  power 
our  ecclesiastical  decision  could  not  bo  carried  out  by  any  effectual 
instrumentality."  They  then  wrote  to  both  parties  to  come  to  terms 
of  peace,  adding  at  the  end  of  each  letter  this  postscript:  "  P.  S. — 
If  any  amicable  reconciliation  cannot  be  effected,  Classis  retains  the 
liberty  either  to  pronounce  judgment  thereon  herself:  or  if  it  seem 
necessary,  to  refer  the  whole  subject  to  the  decision  of  the  Christian 
Synod  of  North  Holland."  (Acts  of  the  Classis  of  Amsterdam 

Owing  to  the  unavoidable  delays  accompanying  transatlantic 
correspondence,  this  decision  of  the  Classis  was  not  reached  until 
May  3,  1728,  and  the  letters  to  Frelinghuysen  and  the  complainants 
were  not  finished  until  June  27  and  28,  1728,  These  last  reached 
Raritan  about  the  end  of  January,  1729;  and  on  April  19,  1729, 
after  several  intcrv'iews  with  his  opponents  Frelinghuysen  offered  to 
remove  the  ban  and  receive  the  complainants  as  members  of  the 
church,  provided  that  they  are  M-illing  over  their  own  signatures  "  to 
make  confession  of  guilt  (for  their  improper  conduct  regarding  his 
teaching),  and  to  recognize  me  as  an  orthodox  minister."  The  com- 
plainants rejected  these  overtures  and  wrote  to  the  Classis,  Novem- 
ber 20,  1729,  for  a  new  minister  at  Three  Mile  Run — they  had  for 
some  time  previously,  contrary  to  the  canons,  and  using  their  barns 
for  churches,  been  employing  the  services  of  Dominie  Henry  Coens 
of  Acquackononck  (i.  e.,  Passaic) — and  April  6,  1730,  assuring  the 
Classis  that  they  had  done  all  they  could  to  seek  peace  but  that 
they  could  not  join  themselves  with  Frelinghuysen  and  his  Consistory,

"  because  thej  disregard  the  Discipline,  Liturgy'  and  pure  Adminis- 
tration of  the  Sacraments  of  the  Dutch  Church;  and  have  allowed 
an  English  dissenter  to  officiate  in  the  services."  This  dissenter  was 
the  Rev.  Gilbert  Tennant  who  was  regularly  ministering  to  the  Eng- 
h'sh  population  there,  and  whom  Frelinghuyscn  had  occasionally  per- 
mitted to  use  one  of  his  churches  for  that  purpose. 

]\Ieanwhile,  Frelinghuyscn,  who  in  1729  had  published  his  two 
sermons  on  1  Peter  -i:  IS,  "  The  righteous  scarcely  saved,"  and  "  The 
miserable  end  of  the  ungodly,"  was  taken  seriously  ill,  at  one  time 
his  life  being  despaired  of,  -and  for  nearly  a  year  was  unable  to 
attend  to  any  duties  whatever.  The  sickness  seems  to  have  been  a 
form  of  neurasthenia  resulting  from  the  persecution  to  which  he  had 
been  subjected;  but  his  enemies  gleefully  hailed  it  as  "insanity," 
and  made  the  most  of  their  opportunity  to  stir  up  the  Classis  against 
him.  So  great  was  their  success  that  the  Classis,  September  1,  1T32, 
records  the  following  minute :  "  In  accordance  with  a  resolution  of 
the  Classis  (July  21,  1732),  a  minister  was  granted  to  the  people 
of  ^lillstone  (now  Harlingen),  and  they  were  notified  to  that  effect 
(Jul}'  25,  1732)  :  In  regard  to  the  people  of  Raritan,  it  was  re- 
solved to  write  to  the  Rev.  Frielinkhuysen  that  he  must  make  his 
peace  with  the  disaffected  ones,  and  that  within  the  space  of  three 
months;  otherwise  the  disaffected  ones  shall  have  liberty  to  join 
the  people  of  Millstone,  and  together  they  may  choose  a  minister; 
also  that  Rev.  Freilinkhuysen  must  keep  himself  to  the  Church  Order 
and  Formulae  of  the  Netherlands."  (Acts  xi.  82.)  The  Classis  had 
previously,  April  2,  1731,  arbitrarily  removed  the  ban.  October  25, 
1732,  the}'  communicated  this  decision  to  Frelinghuysen,  and  No- 
vember 18,  1733,  after  much  written  discussion  between  the  parties 
concerned,  "  Peace  Articles "  were  accepted  and  read  by  Freling- 
huyscn from  the  pulpit,  at  New  Brunswick  January  1,  at  Raritan 
January  8,  and  so  on  successively  in  all  the  churches.  (Acts  xxii. 
333-33i.)  Nine  of  the  eleven  articles  refer  to  matters  of  detail  such 
as  the  release  from  the  ban  and  the  privileges  to  be  accorded  to 
the  disaffected  ones,  etc.,  and  here  Frelinghuysen  shows  his  greatness 
by  giving  his  opponents  the  victory,  and  as  a  reward  gains  the  points 
for  which  he  had  really  contended  ever  since  the  publishing  of  the 
"  Complaint  " :  that  the  Church  order,  etc.,  were  to  be  adhered  to 
only  "  at  least  in  so  far  as  this  is  practicable  and  possible  in  these 
regions  "  (Article  3)  ;  and  that  all  differences  were  to  be  decided  by

"  the  impartial  judgment  of  the  two  nearest  churches  or  ministers, 
but  only  in  the  neighborhood"  (Article  11). 

This  was  the  practical  ending  of  the  quarrel,  although  the  re- 
sults were  not  so  satisfactory  as  might  be  expected.  Only  a  few  of 
the  discontented  ones  returned  to  their  allegiance ;  the  remainder 
drifted  off  to  other  consistories  or  remained  to  cause  more  trouble. 
Throughout  the  remaining  3-ears  of  his  life,  until  he  died  in  174:7 
or  1748,  Dominie  Frelinghuysen  continued  to  suffer  annoyance  and 
vexation,  and  his  son,  Jolm,  who  succeeded  him,  waged  the  same 
battle  until  the  September  session  of  the  Coetus  in  New  York,  1751, 
which  decided  that  a  pastor's  decisions  must  stand,  or  be  submitted 
to  a  court  of  arbitration  chosen  by  both  sides,  whose  decision  should 
be  final. 

One  result  of  the  Raritan  dispute  was  to  awaken  the  Classis 
to  the  need  of  a  better  organization  of  the  church  in  this  country; 
and  accordingly,  January  11,  1735,  they  wrote  to  the  ministers  at 
New  York,  detaihng  their  "  embarrassment  in  expressing  a  final  de- 
cision upon  the  case  of  Rev.  Frielinghuysen,"  and  adding  "  we  should 
be  especially  pleased  if  we  could  receive  from  you  some  Plan,  which 
might  tend  to  promote  the  union  of  the  Dutch  churches  in  your 
portion  of  the  world,  .  .  .  either  by  holding  a  yearly  convention, 
or  in  such  other  way  as  you  think  best."  Consequently,  April  27, 
1738,  a  committee,  representing  nearly  all  the  consistories  in  New 
York  and  New  Jersey,  the  first  three  members  of  which  were  Free- 
man, Van  Santvoordt  and  Frelinghuysen  sent  to  Holland  for  ap- 
proval the  "  Draft-Constitution  for  a  Coetus."  Nine  years  later 
this  was  granted  by  the  Classis,  and  the  Coetus  organized  and  pro- 
ceeded to  business  September  8  and  9,  1747.  Dominie  Frelinghuy- 
sen was  not  present,  but  sent  a  letter  excusing  his  absence,  which 
was  probabh"  caused  by  ill  health,  as,  the  following  April,  Hendrick 
Fisher  notified  the  Coetus  that  their  congregation  needed  a  pastor. 

In  1730  the  five  sermons  of  Dominie  Frelinghuysen  already  re- 
ferred to  were  translated  into  English.  In  1733  he  published  in 
New  York  ten  more  sermons,  written  after  his  Illness  of  1732,  and 
containing  as  the  concluding  words  of  the  preface,  his  now  famous 
motto:  "  Laudem  non  quaero,  culpam  non  timeo;"  *' I  seek  not 
praise,  of  blame  I  am  not  afraid."  A  second  edition  of  these  ser- 
mons appeared  in  Holland  under  approval  and  with  the  commenda- 
tion of  the  university  of  Gronlngen,  who  called  them  "  The  noble 
fruit  brought  from  the  new  world  to  our  doors."     Two  sermons,  on

the  earthquake  of  December  7,  1737,  were  published  in  Utrecht,  in 
1738 ;  and  about  1749,  four  of  his  last  sermons  were  printed  by 
William  Bradford  in  Philadelphia,  with  a  preface  written  by  himself, 
and  two  commendatorv  notes  followino-  it,  one  sio-ned  bv  his  son 
John,  the  other  by  his  pupil,  David  Marinus.  In  1856,  all  of  these 
were  translated  into  English  by  the  Rev.  William  Demarest  and 
published  b}'  thtf  Board  of  Publication  of  the  Dutch  Reformed 
Church,  with  an  introduction  by  Dr.  Thomas  De  Witt  and  a  bio- 
^aphical  sketch  by  the  translator. 

Dominie  Frclinghuysen  was  buried  in  the  old  churchyard 
at  Three  Mile  Run,  "  under  an  old  apple  tree  on  the  north  side." 
Until  a  few  3'cars  ago  the  spot  was  practically  unmarked  ancj 
almost  unknown;  but  in  188-i  some  of  his  descendants  erected  a 
plain  but  stately  granite  stone  at  the  head  of  the  narrow  mound, 
bearing  this  inscription  :  "  Rev.  Theodorus  Jacobus  Frclinghuysen. 
Born  at  Lingen,  East  Friesland,  in  1691.  In  1719  he  was  sent  to 
take  charge  of  the  Reformed  Churches  here  by  the  Chassis  of  Am- 
sterdam. He  was  a  learned  man,  and  a  successful  preacher.  The 
field  of  his  labors  still  bears  fruit.  He  contended  for  a  spiritual 
religion.  His  motto  was,  '  Laudem  non  quaero,  Culpam  non  timeo.' 
He  died  in  1747,  and  his  descendants,  humbly  sharing  in  his  faith, 
have  erected  to  his  mcmor3-  this  monument." 

Such  was  the  llfcwork  of  the  man  who  has  probably  exercised 
the  most  permanent  influence  upon  the  history  of  the  Dutch  Church 
in  this  country,  and  whose  principles  have  dominated  the  shaping 
of  its  character  and  destiny  in  America.  George  Whitefield,  Jona- 
than Edwards  and  the  Rev.  Gilbert  Tennant,  all  speak  of  him  as 
"  one  of  the  greatest  divines  of  the  American  church,"  and  as  being 
a  devout  soul,  filled  ^^'ith  religious  zeal,  keen  spiritual  insight  and 
remarkable  intellectual  abilities  and  attainments.  To  him  more  than 
to  any  one  else  is  due  the  revival  of  religion  in  New  Jersey  at  the 
time  of  the  *'  Great  Awakening."  He  was  the  first  pastor  of  the 
Reformed  church  to  train  up  young  men  for  the  ministry,  and  the 
first  to  favor  and  work  for  the  independence  of  the  church  in  this 
country.  Although  he  did  not  live  to  take  part  in  its  assemblies,  he 
was  one  of  the  initiators  of  the  movement  for  a  Coetus  in  America; 
and  it  was  largely  owing  to  his  zeal,  his  foresight  and  his  persecu- 
tions that  the  reorganization  of  the  Dutch  church  was  accomplished. 
He  was  probably  also  the  first  to  suggest  a  college  for  the  denomi- 
nation in  which  to  train  young  men  for  the  ministry.

,  .  .When  Dominie  Frelinghujsen  entered  upon  his  work  there  was 
almost  everything  to  dishearten  and  almost  nothing  to  encourage. 
Aside  from  sparse  population,  settlements  far  apart,  bridle-path 
roads  and  unbndged  rivers  and  streams,  the  religious  condition  of 
the  Dutch  church  in  the  new  world  was  most  unsatisfactory.  For 
nearly  forty  years  they  had  been  living  in  a  new  and  uncultivated 
country ;  and  hearing  the  Gospel  only  a  few  times  in  the  3'ear,  a 
whole  generation  had  been  born  and  educated  without  public  wor- 
ship ;  while  the  schools  were  no  better  than  the  churches.  The  out- 
ward forms  had  been  retained,  but  the  spirit  of  religion  was  largely 
wanting.  The  wear  and  tear  on  mind  and  body  in  the  struggle  for 
existence  in,  and  the  battle  to  overcome,  the  wilderness,  the  unsettled 
state  of  political  affairs,  the  ecclesiastical  subjection  to  a  governing 
body  whose  decisions  must  necessarily  be  theoretical  and  based  on 
hearsay  evidence,  as  well  as  delivered  a  long  time  after  the  need  for 
them  had  arisen,  all  this  had  resulted  in  a  condition  of  chronic  bick- 
ering and  an  almost  cantankerous  faultfinding  among  the  religiously 
zealous  and  in  the  falling  away  into  carelessness  of  life  and  Indiffer- 
ence to  principle  of  the  great  majority.  A  generation  had  grown  up 
jealous  of  their  protestant  forms  and  ceremonies,  but  really  caring 
very  little  about  the  inner  life  and  spirit  of  religion. 

Previous  to  1720,  Dominie  Bertholf,  then  pastor  of  all  northern 
New  Jersey  and  a  considerable  portion  of  New  York,  visited  the 
Raritan  region  about  twice  a  year;  and  when  Dominic  Frelinghuysen 
arrived  there  were  three  churches  more  or  less  complete!}'  organized: 
Raritan,  now  the  First  Church  of  Somerville,  since  1699;  Three  Mile 
Run,  now  the  First  Church  of  New  Brunswick,  or  Franklin  Park,  in 
1703;  and  North  Branch,  now  Readington,  in  1719.  "^^^lat  was  then 
a  missionary  station  at  Six  Mile  Run  became  later  the  "  Millstone 
church,"  and  is  now  the  church  at  Harlingen.  January  31,  1720, 
the  new  pastor  preached  his  first  sermon  at  Raritan,  from  2  Corin- 
thians 5 :  20 ;  and  with  the  zeal  and  earnestness  which  has  won  him 
the  title  of  "  New  Jersey's  father  of  evangelical  religion,"  he  began 
laboring  to  instil  into  the  hearts  of  his  flock  genuine  piety  and  real 
practical  religion.  With  all  his  greatness,  however,  the  good  Do- 
minie was  not  faultless ;  and  though  strong  in  act,  the  records  show 
that  he  was  sometimes  anything  but  persuasive  in  manner;  and  in 
consequence  he  more  than  once  gave  his  opponents  grounds  on  which 
they  afterwards  based  some  of  their  charges  against  him.  This  was 
also  one  of  the  main  reasons  why  the  Classis  finally  decided  against

him,  resenting  his  vigorous  language  and  certain  quite  true  but  very 
emphatic  scriptural  epithets  he  employed;  although  they  based  their 
adverse  judgment  on  what  we  must  admit  were  mistakes  on  his  part. 
He  was  inaccurate  in  the  form  of  the  citations,  and  his  exercise  of 
the  ban,  or  excommunication,  was  not  exactly  regular;  but  these  were 
side  issues.  The  principles  he  fought  for  were  of  ^^tal  importance 
to  the  life  and  well-being  of  the  reformed  religion  in  this  country; 
the  parties  so  bitterly  complained  of  and  warred  against,  Freling- 
huysen,  Schureman  and  Hendrick  Fisher,  have  always  been  held  in 
the  highest  esteem,  both  in  church  and  state;  and  the  ultimate  moral 
results  of  Frclinghuysen's  course,  however  criticised  at  the  time,  have 
been  only  beneficial.  The  locality  where  he  officiated  has  been  known 
ever  since  as  the  "  Garden  of  the  Dutch  Church,"  and  "  the  whole 
Raritan  region  has  felt  tlie  benefit  of  his  ministry  down  to  the 
present  day."

A  Story  of  the  Making  of  a  Famous  New  England  Town 



In  The  Grafton  Historical  Series 

12mo,  Cloth,  Illustrated 

Price  $1.25  Net  (Postage  10  Cents) 

This  volume  gives  the  essential  facts  that  every  descendant  of  Hadley 
families  should  know,  and  that  every  student  of  the  origin  of  American 
character  and  institutions  should  understand. 

The  original  records  of  the  town,  the  church  and  the  school  have  been 
carefully  searched.  The  Judd  manuscripts,  in  the  handwriting  of  Syl- 
vester Judd,  who  for  a  lifetime  questioned  the  old  inhabitants,  studied 
extant  monuments  and  relics,  and  recorded  with  painstaking  zeal  every 
item  connected  with  the  manners,  customs  and  events  of  the  first  settlers 
of  Hadley  and  their  descendants,  have  been  examined. 

Old  files  of  newspapers  have  been  read  and  all  contributions,  notes  and 
advertisements  relating  to  Hadley  have  been  utilized.  Old  houses  have 
been  visited  and  everything  in  the  region  that  brings  to  light  any  phase  of 
the  hfe  of  the  fathers  has  been  scrutinized.  Octogenarians  have  been 
persuaded  to  talk  of  the  days  of  their  youth,  and  to  tell  the  stories  their 
grandfathers  told  them. 

The  names  of  many  families  are  mentioned  and  their  services  in  the 
revolutionary  war  and  in  times  of  peace  described.

is  equipped  to  undertake  any  commission,  however  large  or  small,  and 
whether  genealogical  or  general  in  character.  We  guarantee  to  satisfy  our

line —  )..,:.       ^  . 

Collect  the  material  and  write  a  genealogy  from  the  beginning  to  the  end. 
Complete  a  partly  finished  manuscript,  no  matter  what  stage  it  is  in. 
Take  your  loose  data  and  put  it  in  perfect  condition  for  printing. 
Edit  a  completed  manuscript;  supplying  the  numbering,  arrangement, 

style  or  good  English.  "        ;    -      - 

Prepare  the  index  of  names,  and  of  places,  or  both. 
Or  do  anything  whatever  that  might  be  necessary.     And  we  will  gladly 

show  examples  of  our  work  in  all  these  lines. 


We  have  indexed,  rearranged,  edited,  and  prepared  for  publication 
many  maunscripts.  For  the  committee  in  charge  of  the  New  Milford 
(Connecticut)  Bi-Centcnnial  celebration  (1007)  we  took  entire  charge  of 
their  memorial  book.  The  exercises  occupied  five  days  and  tv>-o  members 
of  our  staff  attended  and  prepared  a  full  account  of  all  of  the  meetings, 
including  the  speeches.  The  townspeople  contributed  several  articles, 
and  we  put  the  whole  into  perfect  form  for  printing,  submitted  the  manu- 
script to  the  committee  and  when  they  had  passed  upon  it  we  printed  and 
published  a  handsome  and  creditable  volume. 

It  costs  nothing  to  consult  us  and  to  consider  our  plan  for  making  any 
book  you  may  have  in  mind.  Our  prices  are  reasonable  and  are  based  on 
the  services  rendered.    References  given  if  desired.
