ANCESTORS OF
ELIZABETH HOLTZCLAW BURNS

Submitted by: Barb Price (RockCatt@aol.com)

Dividing Line

Go here for the Descendents of Elizabeth Burnes

Generation No. 1

1. Elizabeth Holtzclaw Burnes1, born 1813 in Wilkes Co., Georgia1; died 1867 in Marion Co., Arkansas2. She was the daughter of 2. James W. Burnes and 3. Charlotte Holtzclaw. She married (1) Thomas S. Burnes3,4 1829 in Tennessee. He was born 1807 in Tennessee5 and died 1892 in Marion Co., Arkansas5. He was the son of Frederick Burnes and Barbara Hardy.

Notes for Elizabeth Holtzclaw Burnes:
    Elizabeth is the daughter of James W. Burnes and Charlotte Holtzclaw, the grand daughter of Timothy Holtzclaw and Rhoda Graham, the great grand daughter of Henry Holtzclaw and Nancy Ann Hardin and the great grand daughter of Hans Jacob Holtzclaw and Anna Margreth Otterbach.
    The only reference we have as to the death of Elizabeth is her husband's application for Pension of a Father, filed in 1881. In it, he and other witnesses, testify to the fact that Elizabeth died in 1867. Their youngest daughter, Sarah, was thought to have been born around 1871, which would be impossible as her mother died in 1867 and I'm wondering if Elizabeth died in childbirth as she would have been 54 years old at that time.

Notes for Samuel T. Burnes:
    From Ralph Burns:
    Samuel T. Burnes, son of James W. and Charlotte
    Samuel T. Burnes, the second oldest child of James W. and Charlotte Holtzclaw Burnes, was born in Wilkes Co., GA in 1813. By 1820 his family had moved to Lincoln Co., TN, where his father died in 1827. Shortly thereafter his family moved to Henderson Co., TN. He was already married in 1830 to wife unknown and his son Lafayette was born in 1831. Sometime later, he moved to Texas where he married Eliza Smith in San Augustine Co. in 1838. In 1850 he was a trader, living in San Augustine. Later he speculated in land in Freestone and Harrison counties. By 1860 he was living near Grand Bluff, Panola Co., TX, where he had farming interests and was postmaster for a while. By 1870 Eliza had died and he had married Mary Holland, a widow with five children. They moved to Walker Co., TX where they were separated. By 1880 Mary was living in Hempstead, Waller Co., TX with a daughter and a grandson. Sam remained in Waller Co. where he was the census taker in Dodge in 1880.
    Sam had seven children. His son, Lafayette, a surveyor in Montgomery Co., TX married Frances Mary Roark. His youngest daughter Josephine born 1860, married Obed B. Love and they lived in Dodge. Sam, Jr., a widower, lived near Obed and Josie from 1900 through 1920. Sam and Eliza also had these children:
    Mary Ann 1841-
    Almedia (Eliza)-1844
    Rachel 1847-
    James 1858-
    S. T. (Sam) Burnes, son of James W. & Charlotte, was the census taker for E. D. 157, Walker Co., TX 1880. His personal entry is the very last one made, except for 5 additions.
    There should be no doubt about the accuracy of the birthplaces of his and his siblings` parents.

    William Brown
    William Brown #681[author's numbering system] came from England before 1643 and died at Eastham about 1694. On 16 July 1649 he married Mary Murdock #682. He settled first at Plymouth and was listed in 1643 as able to bear arms. At a town meeting there on 10 December 1646 it was voted that those who did not attend town meetings should pay 12 pence and William Brown was a signer.
    Mary Murdock came from England with Thomas Whiton and his wife on the ship Elizabeth and Ann in May 1635 when she[Mary] was ten years old. Thomas Whiton mentioned her as a daughter-in-law which probably meant step daughter. She lived with the family of Richard Sparrow and his wife Pandora from 24 June 1639 until her marriage. William Brown's will was dated 27 June 1685 and recorded on 7 April 1694 in which he mentioned his wife and children.

Children of James Burnes and Jemima Brown are:

i.David Burnes, born 14 March 1745/46 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland31; died 07 May 1799 in Washington, DC; married (1) Anne Wight; born 24 February 1725/26 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland; died 28 January 1807 in Washington, DC.

Notes for David Burnes:
From, "Revolutionary Patriots of Prince George's County Maryland 1775-1783," by Henry C. Peden, Jr:
    "BURNES, David (Feb. 14, 1745/6- ). Son of James and Jemima Burnes. Second Lietenant, 25th Militia Battalion, Capt. John Weight's(Wight), May 1, 1778 [which spelled the name "Burns". Took the Oath of Allegiance before the Hon. Christopher Lowndes in 1778."
    **Capt. John Wight was David Burnes's brother in law, brother of his wife, Ann Wight.
From, David Burnes by Helen Fields: "Washington City Land
    There was resurveyed for James Burnes in 1769, part of Beall's Levels, obtained by Ninian Beall of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, in 1703. The land had been occupied by James Burnes for more than twenty years. But he died before obtaining the patent, which was secured by his eldest son, David, in 1774. This comprised most of the land on each side of Pennsylvania Avenue, between the White House and First Street, below the Capitol. Thus David Burnes became the most important original land owner in the district of Columbia. Other proprietors were: Daniel Carroll of Duddington, Notley Young, Robert Peter, Anthony Holmead, Benjamin Stoddert, James M. Lingan, William Young, Thomas Beall of George, William Deakins, Jr., Uriah Forrest, George Beall, Abraham Young, James Pierce, Jonathan Slater, Charles Beatty, Clement Woodward. Between March 30 and June 30, 1791, the names of Samuel Davidson, Clement Woodward and George Walker appear as landowners for the first time in the list of those who signed deeds, and an agreement by Jonathan Slater of land he had contracted to buy from John Prout."

    United States
    Maryland Goose Creek-----26 Feby 1791
    Sir
    Copy
    I presume to address you with great defference on a Subject in which I think my own character reputation and interest involved reports have been ______here that some designing speculative men have been making you offers for the property which I among others gave up to you on certain conditions stipulated in a paper which we all Signed giving you the power to make any Advantages where from towards erecting the Federal City, and I am the more induced to believe that speculation is in ______ from an offer which I have lately had for a futher part of my property, on the specious pretext that it will be necessary to give it up to complete your design should you fix on the Ground we have already offered you for the purposes aforesaid....To convince you that I do not withhold that further part of my property from your application of it, to the uses designed I am willing if it is your desire to add a futher quantity of my land not exceeding severnty nine acres at any price not under fifteen pounds per acre that you may please to nominate, or I will agree to take every third Lot of the said _____ _____ of ground. I remain in the Great Respect and Esteem

    Thompson Signed David Burnes (Seal)
Letter from Benjamin Stoddert to President Washington, 7 March 1791:
    I am still of the opinion, that the President in making his election between this neighborhood, & Carroll being with in some degree, be governed by the offers he receives from each place------I therefore think it of the utmost consequence, that the offers from this place, should be enlarged-Mr. Burns's land, is the principal obstruction, as the other proprietors have consented to let him take as much of their lands as he pleases.
    To remove all difficulties with Mr. Burns, I will give him one hundred pounds cash in hand, if he will enter into an agreement to let the President extend the lines of the Federal City, as far as he pleases on his land, on the terms of his former offer-or if Mr. Burns does not choose to accept this offer, I will buy the whole of his land at L15 p(er) acre-and will pay him down. L100-will pay his debt to Mr. Deakins--& to Mr. Lingan, and will give him such security as he may require, to pay the balance in February next-meantime, Mr. Burns may keep possession, & I shall not require a deed until the money shall be paid. But this last offer, I make merely that I may have the power of offering the President what he pleases to take of the land-I will not be bound by either of these offers longer than Wednesday night.

Letter from Benjamin Stoddert to David Burnes, 11 March 1791:
    Geo Town 11 March 1791.
    Sir
    I am sorry the negotiations I have endeavored to carry on with you, should be considered in the light of speculation for any private views----the truth is, I have no object, but a public one-I think it of the utmost importance to George Town, that the President should fix on the situation offered him from this neighborhood, for the Federal City-and I think the only chance of his so doing will be, by making the offers as unexceptionable as possible.
    All those who hold lands have agreed to an extension of their offers, except yourself-but these agreements will be of little consequence unless you also agree-for their land cannot be taken, without yours, as the President, no doubt, would choose to make Goose Creek one of the boundary's if he accepts the upper situation.
    This thinking-permit me to make you one more offer, which I promise you shall be the last, I will trouble you with-the offer is this-I will give you L1000 if you will agree to let the President of the United States take one hundred acres more of your land, than you have already offered, on the terms of your former offers-I mean this L1000 to be yours whether the President accepts of one foot of your land or not-if he should accept of the upper situation, I should expect he would not let me be a looser, but this would depend intirely on himself-and if he should not accept, I should certainly loose the L1000, and you would gain it, without loosing an acre of your land-and if he should accept, you certainly could not be a looser, as you won to get full L25 p(er) acre, for this 100 acres. L100 of the L1000, I wish to pay you in cash-for the remaining L900, I will give you my bond with such security as you shall approve, payable in 12 months.
    Your own candid considerations of the offer herein made, must satisfy you, than I can have no private view in making it-the fact is, that I think fixing the Federal City in the Eastern Branch, would destroy George Town, in which I have a good deal of property, that would thereby be rendered of little or no value-and I think that unless the offers from this side of Goose Creek should be much better, than those from the Eastern Branch, that Carrols b___ will carry it-It is to prevent so great an evil to George Town, that I am induced to make you such an offer-for I think with 100 acres more of your land, than you have already agreed to gove up-and with what Pearce's & Waring have agreed to give up, the offer from this side would be much better than any that could be made from the E Branch.
    I understand you have heard I was concerned in an offer to purchase of the President, the whole of the Land he might fix on-I can only say, that I never had a serious thought of the kind-and never will be concerned in such a purchase, even if the President should ever consent to sell, which I am sure he never will do-and I consent that this letter may remain evidence against me-----
    If you should think it your interest to accept this offer, you must do it today or tomorrow, as I cannot consent to be bound by it longer-
    I am fr(forever) Yr(your) Hbl(Humble) Serv(Servant)

    Gentlemen
    Agreeably to a verbal message received by Mr. Munroe I have investigated as far as I was able Mr Burnes pretentions to the public appropriations, and am of opinion it may be safely estimated according to the enclosed bill. I have waited on Mr. Burnes in order to have some idea of his lines. He laid his papers before me, but they were in such complication, and he so unwell, that I could get but little satisfaction from them. In the month of April next his Surveyor Mr. Magill, is to attend; Mr. Burnes is desirous that one of your Surveyors should attend along with him, in order to have the business settled as he is desirous of having it done; he further observes that he is willing to give you a mortgage on a parcel of his lots for the money which you may pay him until the appropriations are fully ascertained. I am Gentlemen you Hbl. Svt.

    The Secretary of War to Major Alexander Trueman.- 22d May, 1792.
    SIR:  
    This will be delivered you by Brigadier General Putnam. He has been charged by the President of the United States with a similar commission to the one given to you. This has not been done from any distrust of your zeal or exertion. But the importance of the object, and the contingencies to which the persons employed in the business are subject, have induced the President of the United States to employ General Putnam in addition to you. If you shall have succeeded, it will be a fortunate circumstance for you. If you should have entered upon the business, you will find great satisfaction in assisting General Putnam in its prosecution and termination.
    It will ever afford me satisfaction to reflect on the patriotism and cheerfulness with which you undertook the mission, and I hope will redound greatly to your honor.
    The village of Hardin, Shelby County, Ohio's first county seat, located west of Sidney is named after Colonel John Hardin. Born in Virginia in 1753, he moved with his family, at the age of 12, to Pennsylvania. After joining the military, he was eventually commissioned as a second lieutenant in Daniel Morgan's Rifle Corps and served during the Revolutionary War. He was one of the heroes in the battles of Saratoga that reversed the fortune of the Continental Army and the country's fight for independence. The defeat of British General Burgoyne, his huge army, and their surrender on October 16, 1777, gave new impetus to the American cause. Burgoyne's routing and humiliating surrender finally convinced Louis XVl of France that the Americans could win their rebellion, and that he was now ready to commit his nation to another war on the American continent against their traditional enemy, the English.
    After the war, Hardin moved to Kentucky where he became a successful farmer, and part-time soldier participating in many successful engagements against Indian raiders in Kentucky. Because of his record, Hardin and a Captain Truman were selected to take a message to the Indians (in Ohio and beyond) written by Secretary of War Henry Knox. They were peace missions, with Truman to visit the Indians along the Maumee River, and Hardin, the area reaching to Upper Sandusky.
    The message read, in part: "To all the tribes south of the Lakes (Great), east of the Mississippi and northwest of the Ohio (river). Brothers - The President of the United States (George Washington) entertains the opinion, that the war which exists is founded in error and mistake on your part. That you believe that the United States wants to deprive you of your lands and drive you out of the country. Be assured that this is not so; on the contrary, that we should be greatly gratified with the opportunity of imparting to you all the blessings of civilized life, of teaching you to cultivate corn, to raise oxen, sheep and other domestic animals; to build comfortable houses; so as ever to dwell upon the land."
    Both parties left Fort Washington (Cincinnati) with a guide and interpreter in June 1792. Before leaving the fort, Hardin wrote to his wife about his mission; reassuring her that, although it might be dangerous based on recent reports, his message from the president should be well received. He wrote: "The Indians have killed several persons in the quarter lately and leave behind them war clubs, which denotes their intentions of war. But do not let this give you any uneasiness as I have not a doubt that I shall meet with good treatment, as the speech and the belt I shall take is from the president of the United States."
    Col. Hardin's party, along with John Flinn (guide and Interpreter) included a servant named Freeman. John Flinn himself has an interesting story in that he, and his entire family, were captured by Indians in Virginia and spent 14 years living with the Indians. He served Col. Johnston as an interpreter at his Indian agency near Fort Wayne and at upper Piqua. Flinn, and the Hardin party headed north and were within three quarters of a mile of the current village of Hardin, Shelby County, near Turtle Creek, when they were waylaid by a party of three or four Shawnee Indians. The details of the encounter and what transpired is contained in the notes of Col John Johnston, Indian agent, as told to him by Blackhoof, Chief of the Shawnee, and others, soon after the peace of 1795.
    The Indian party, learning of Hardin's mission, professed friendship and camped the night with the white men. During the night Col. Hardin and some of his companions were murdered by the Indians. Flinn tried to escape, but since he had spent many years living with the Indians, his life was spared. Col. Johnston, in Hardin's memory, caused the future village to be named Hardin. Captain Truman was also killed, just one day's ride from his destination, possibly at the mouth of the Auglaize River. Col. Johnston records that Hardin was probably murdered for his fine clothes and the equipment the party carried. According to other recorded comments of that day, Hardin and Truman were both scalped.
    A quotation from a speech to General Wayne on December 25, 1792, at Legionville, Pennsylvania, by Chief Cornplanter and New Arrow of the Allegheny Indians, reads: General Washington must not think hard of the loss of Col. Hardin and others, as we have since understood they were sent with messages of peace; unluckily for them and us, they had taken the bad road; if four spies, whom we left on that road, saw any of your people, they took them for enemies, and treated them as such; we know that you people would have done the same."
    The Shelby County Historical Society, along with three other organizations, erected a marker commemorating the killing of Colonel Hardin. It is the same marker which notates the stopping point of the Shawnee on their final journey from Shelby County, Ohio. It can be seen today in the center of the Hardin village on SR 47.

    The surender of Cornwallis at Yorktown October 19, 1781, left the Chesapeake under the relative safety of our french allies patrols. Wheland retreated, but, news came from North Carolina that he and his lieutenant had beencaptured, and though Maryland authorities offered to send and collect these men, no reply from North Carolina is recorded, Wheland and Timmons had escaped. In 1782, they were back to plundering.
    Meanwhile, the good people of Pocomoke had convinced Maryland to assist them in building the Protector, a barge armed with a 24 pounder, and a full compliment of 100 men. In Annapolis, the Decoy and the Plater were dispatched along with another boat, under the command of Captain Alexander Trueman, to pursue another Tory vessel that had taken to the West River. Eventually, picaroons were reported in the strength of 4 privateers and four barges blocking the Pocomoke Sound alone, with others operating elsewhere, up and down the bay.

    >Hi, Ralph:
    >Yes, John Lane and Margaret Burnes were married in Maryland. (I have the references if you need them.) He served in the Am. Revolution after having taken the Oath of Allegiance in Prince George's County, Maryland. (I have this reference if you need it.) His family though was from Viriginia with his father, James Hardage Lane, having served as a Captain in the Virginia line for the Am. Revolution.
    John Lane and Margaret Burnes settled in Mt. Sterling, Montgomery Co., Kentucky. Their daughter Jemima Waddey Lane married in Montgomery Co., to George W. Cooke. I descend through Jemima's oldest son John Lane Cooke (aka: Louis Philippe Cooke).
    I am currently corresponding with another descendant of James Hardage Lane and she has more information on the Lanes and Hardages than what I have. If you are interested in it I'll be happy to forward it to you as soon as I sort it out as it pertains to John Lane.
    I do have the widow's pension application information that Margaret Burnes filed and was granted.
    I hope this helps.
    Are you a descendant in this line?

Notes for Frederick Burnes:
    (Charles) Frederick A. "Fred" Burn(e)s in Madison County, AL and Lincoln County, TN
Gleanings of Pioneer History, W. R. Jones, Interview found in Marion Co, AR Library
    ==================================
    I have no early dates stating when the first (Burnes) arrived in America but it was before the Revolutionary War because one, Charles Fredrick Burnes, was here and fought for our freedom during that war. I have in my possession a remnant of an old spelling book which belonged to him, bearing a date of 1755. This book is covered with cloth entirely homemade, every thread hand-spun and handwoven. The first part of this book is almost worn away indicating that "Charlie" didn't finish the course outlined by the author. The front part of the book was probably the extent of his literary education. This was my great-great-grandfather. His wife was a Miss Hardy. The family is of Scotch descent.
    Note: Placed here because this is one of only a few records where Frederick has been referred to as Charles Frederick.

    Notes: 1) There is a new and old State line. I have a copy of a map which shows the new line. Frederick's land could have crossed the line making him pay taxes in Madison County, MS Territory and later in Lincoln Co, TN. Another option would be that the Charles in Madison County, AL was not our Frederick. However, there were a large number of mentions of Huntsville, Madison County, AL in the court books. It's also important to note that at least one of Fred's children, Jemima, was married in Madison County, AL.
    2) There are many more mentions of John Bailey in Lincoln Co, TN records as well as Madison County, AL. See info under John Bailey. Wish we knew who John's father was. We may have him on our lists here.
    3) Fred first shows up in records in Lincoln Co, TN in 1811. The original Lincoln County was formed in 1809 by Act of the General Assembly of Tennessee meeting at Knoxville and was to become effective January 1, 1810. It was the first progeny county of old Bedford that had been established December 3, 1807. The lands of Lincoln had been under the domain of North Carolina for many years, prior to its establishment and was once a part of Green, Davidson, Rutherford, part of Williamson and finally Bedford, the parent county. County records do not begin until 1810. Therefore, it is likely that he was here prior to that time.
    4) Fred's last record in Lincoln County was dated 1822. In 1822 there was land up for sale in Madison County, TN. (This is Madison County, TN not Madison County, AL. These are two distinct areas.) There is a record of a James Burnes who purchased land in Jackson, Madison County, TN in 1822. Fred is listed on the 1830 census of Madison County, TN. I believe he moved there around 1822. Of special interest is the fact that according to this census record, Barbara is still living in 1830. Also, either there were other boys aged 10-15 in 1830 or these are the ages of Samuel and Silvanus (plus one other boy). There is one daughter listed age 15-20 which I do not have in my database. I also noticed that I have a 10 year span between the births of Truman and James Wilkerson. Therefore, other family could indeed fit into the picture.
    5) Another observation I found interesting is a mention of Davy Crockett who lived in Lincoln County, TN during these early years. In 1822 he is listed in Madison County, TN as a congressman from this area. He left there and went to Texas and we all know what happened at the Alamo. It is highly possible that Frederick and other Burnes in the area knew Davy. (By the way, there were quite a few men that left Tennessee with Davy. Didn't I hear one of our cousins online mention that there was a Burnes at the Alamo? I would like to explore this again sometime.) In addition, there were a lot of other families now in Madison County, TN (also in Hardeman and Henderson Counties where other Burnes family settled) who I researched in Lincoln County while going through the court records, etc. It appears that a large group left Lincoln County around the same time.
    6) There is a David Cowan family in Lincoln County, TN. Since Fred was there from 1811 (probably earlier) to roughly 1822, I am inclined to think that this is the family that Fred's daughter Phildera married into. There is no actual mention of a Silas Cowan. Marion Burnes says that Silas's father is named Andrew. Could it be David Andrew or even Andrew David? This David was a very prominent citizen in Lincoln County. However, he died without a will. There is a mention of James Cowen, presumably his oldest son, who along with a Stephen Hightower, administrated David's estate. Incidentally, there is an Alexander Cowen, who I believe to be David's son, in the Lincoln County, TN records. He later moved to Hardeman County, TN and is listed on the 1830 census. He was there during the time that Alfred and Truman Burnes were tried. Also on the 1830 census of Hardeman are 3 John Burns, a Nancy Burnes, a Thomas Burns, a Washington Burns, 2 John Gray's (this name relates to the Cowen side of the family), and a Rollins Cowen.
    7) In 1830, Frederick lived in Madison County, TN, just above Hardeman, and Silas, Thomas, and Charlotte Burnes are listed in Henderson County which is one county to the east of Madison County, TN. Besides Frederick A. Byrn, there is also a John W. Byrn , Ransom H. Byrn (who - by the way appears to have two other adults living in his household), and Upton Byrn living in Madison County, TN.

 16. David Burnes, born Abt. 1700 in Scotland; died 28 October 1762 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland. He married 17. Ann Fleming.

17. Ann Fleming, died 02 July 1764 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland.

Notes for David Burnes:

"David bought the first parcel of land belonging to the Burnes family of Prince George's County, Maryland, on November 3, 1721. The deed was recorded March 28, 1722. This tract, called "Elinor," contained 70 acres and was purchased from John Allison (also recorded as Ellison) who had bought it March 25, 1719. The record of sale to Mr. Allison called for land only, with no mention made of premises or imprevements of any sort, but when David 1st purchased it two years later, the deed recites "Dwelling houses, tenement houses, tobacco houses, buildings, gardens, etc."

As the City of Washington is now laid out, this tract was bounded by 6th Street and Massachusetts Avenue, N.W., on its North East corner, running westerly next to a point just West of Jackson Place and Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., then in an easterly direction to F and 6th Streets, then North on 6th Street to the beginning at 6th Street and Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. This then establishes the age of the old Burnes house at 10-th Street above G Street, N.W. It also explains why the family graveyard was located on H Street near 10th Street, N.W. The dimensions of this house have been given as 20' x 16', and the graveyard as 30' x 30'. Here dwelt David 1st with his wife Ann, nee Fleming, their son, James 1st and Ann's son, John Fleming, for she was a widow when she married David. The extreme western part of Elinor included the ground on which part of the White House now stands, and also all of its southern grounds. The old State, War and Navy Building, and most of the Treasury Building, are also on this tract."

David Burnes purchased "Part of Beall's Levels" in 1730 and 1732 from Torrance Downing:

BEALL'S LEVELS - THE ELLIPSE AREA

Portions of the Federal city of Washington stand on land once owned

by Ninian Beall. In addition to the "Rock of Dunbarton" he acquired

a patent in 1687 for a 1,503 acre tract called "Inclosure" which is

now part of the National Arboretum. He also owned a 225 acre tract

called "Beall's Levels" covering an area which now includes the White

House, the Ellipse and the Federal Triangle.

There were other owners of property that makes up modern day

Washington. A monument recognizing the original landowners of what

is now the Federal city sits on the Ellipse south of the White

House. Situated about halfway between Constitution and Pennsylvania

Avenues on the sidewalk on the south side of 15th Street, the small,

unpretentious monument virtually stands in the shadow of its more

famous neighbor only a block away, the Washington Monument. In sharp

contrast to the towering 555 foot high Washington Monument, the

monument honoring the original landowners is only 8 feet high and

was erected in 1936 by the National Society of the Daughters of

American Colonists. Facing towards the Department of Commerce and

the Capitol beyond, the little monument has inscribed on its front

the following:

Notes for Hans Jacob Holtzclaw:

Nothing happened though until the spring and summer of 1713. After Rev.

Haeger's retirement, the Prince appointed a new pastor, Friedrich Georg

Knabenschuh. Our next piece of information about the departure of Rev.

Haeger comes from Knabenschuh. He wrote to the Royal Synod on 12 July 1713,

"Herewith I want to have dutifully informed your Princely Consistorium

[Royal Synod], that Rev. Pastor Haeger, until now residing here, has moved

this early morning from here, according to his word [pretense] to settle in

the Land Berg [a neighboring duchy], of which departure he never thought or

said a word, but it is presumed by everyone as if [he] intends to travel to

his son, and because it was just learned [that] the one time school man

[Schuldiener] Hanns Jacob Holtzklau is also willing to travel away [and] as

I just talked to him about that [he] gave me as an answer that he was well

decided to do so should he get the permission of the Just Government."

The decisions of the Siegen landers to emigrate is seen to have been made

individually. When Rev. Haeger left, Jacob Holtzklau did not even know if

he was going or not. Even more strongly, when Rev. Haeger left, he did not

know whether Jacob Holtzklau would be leaving.

I have plotted the 1300 acre grant that Jacob Holtzclaw had. From Hackley's

map, I see that Jacob sold land from this to Jacob Fishback, Harman Back,

George Wayman, John Young, J. Henry Huffman, and Harman Miller and still

had some left, presumably the 600 acres that you referred to. I believe

that it is a matter of record in B. C. Holtzclaw's writings how much each

of these six bought.

(CB2) ASHLAND FARM

The Holtzclaw family acquired Ashland through a grant issued by Lt. Governor Alexander Spotswood in 1724, and lived on this land until the 1920's. While a portion of the house dates to about 1725, the main residence was completed by 1889, and was remodeled and enlarged by architect William Lawrence Bottomley in 1929. Between 1861 and 1864, the Union Army stationed pickets at Ashland, as it was used as a Federal medical dressing station. Legend claims that a Union army payroll, hidden by a paymaster who died in 1862 at nearby Waterloo, Virginia, is still buried here. (Route 211, 4.4 miles west of Warrenton).

The "Caledonia" and the Darien Disaster

Some Scottish Immigrants

The story of the ship Caledonia is inextricably entwined with the loss of Scotland's nationhood, largely a result of the failed Scottish Colony of New Caledonia on the Isthmus of Darien, now Puerto Escoces, on the Caribbean coast of Panama. The ship also carried many immigrant Scotch families to New York and New Jersey The Isthmus of Darien, Panama The red dot identifies the harbor of New Caledonia

Caledonia Bay, the harbor of New Caledonia

The town of New Edinburgh is the lighter area in the center.

England had virtually cut Scotland off from world trade. Scotland was anxious for its own world empire. The first Scottish attempt at

colonization in the Americas is often called the Patterson Expedition. William Patterson, one of the founders of the Bank of England and the first Governor of New Caledonia, had said that, "Darien would be the door of the seas, the key of the universe, reducing by half the time and expense of navigation to China and Japan, and bringing peace to both oceans without the guilt of war."The plan was to cut a road through the Panamanian jungle, link the Pacific and Atlantic and set up a trading post on the coast of Darien. This was a good idea, but New Calidonia was not a hospitable place. The colony failed miserably. As a result of the financial fiasco caused by the failed colony, Scotland lost its nationhood and was forced into union with England in return for compensation to individuals who had lost fortunes. About 1707 the poet Robert Burns refered to the Scotland's entry into the union as "being bought and sold by English gold."

The Ship "Caledonia"

The Caledonia was one of the five ships in the glorious First Darien Expedition Fleet in 1698. Near the end of her usefulness in 1715, she had been a ship for prisoners expelled by the British government to the American Colonies for political reasons. She was old and leaking badly. Not worth repairing, her planks worm-eaten in the tropics, she was blown ashore in a gale at Perth Amboy, New Jersey.There were two ships named the Caledonia. The Caledonia sailed under the command of Robert Drummond, and is the ship referred to here. Caledonia was an old name for Scotland. The other ship was the Ann of Caledonia, originally named the Anna, purhased for the Darien Company in New York by Thomas Drummond, brother of Robert, and sailed back to New Caledonia.

The Voyages of the "Caledonia"

including partially reconstructed passenger lists The hyperlinks point to the

Roll Family IGM Database

The names of passengers are taken from secondary sources only, and some of the information is not documented.

1682

The Caledonia sailed from from Glasgow, Scotland to New York City, New York.

Passengers included

William Hogue (or Hoge), his future wife

Barbara Hume, and her father

Sir James Hume (died on ship), and her mother

Mrs. Hume (who died on the ship)

William Hoge, distinguished in state and church, came to America in 1682,

He was the son of Sir James Hoge of Scotland, who lived in Mussleburg near

Glasco. On board the Caledonia, the vessel that brought him over, was a

family named Hume, consisting of a father , mother and daughter. They were

Presbyterians, leaving Scotland to avoid the persecution.

The Humes were from Paisley,Scotland. The father was a knight and a Baron.

Both mother and father died during the voyage to America, leaving their

daughter in the charge of young William Hoge, who placed her with

relatives, the Johnsons, in New York City, while he decided to make his

home in Perth Amboy, New Jersey on land owned by a Scotch company, at the

head of which was Gov. Berkley, and of which he was a member.

William Gregg

In 1682 he sailed from southern Ireland with other Quakers from northern

Ireland to Perth Amboy, New Jersey. They settled in Upland, now Chester,

Pennsylvania, later moving down the Delaware River to settle near the

Brandywine Creek. He was granted 200 acres in one of William Penn's

principal manors, Rockland Manor, in 1683, and 400 acres on January 26,

1684. Here he built a log cabin, which he called "Strand Millas." He died

at the age of about 45 and was buried on his own land in Christiana

Hundred, New Castle, Delaware.

Early Families known to the GREGGS  

Among the first land owners of the Delaware area was William PENN. On Feb. 17, 1699 he directed Henry HOLLINGSWORTH to lay out 30,000 acres to his children William and Letitia Penn. Letitia's portion was later sold to settlers in the area. According to the "Immigration of Irish Quakers" William GREGG(1642-1687) and his wife Ann came to America with the DIXON, HOLLINGSWORTH, and SHARPLEY families of northern Ireland.

In the book "Quaker Greggs" William Gregg left Ireland in 1682 on the ship "Caledonia" with William HOGE. William built a log cabin located on Stand Milas in 1684, his neighbors were Henry, and Thomas HOLLINGSWORTH, Thomas WOOLASTEN, George HOGG, William HOGE, John HUSSY, and William DIXON. Ann Gregg the second child and only daughter of William Gregg, was the second wife of William DIXON 1662-1708. William DIXON purchased a one hundred acre farm from Letitia Penn which was located between the farms of John and Isaac DIXON. West of William Dixons land was a plot belonging to Thomas DIXON which completed the belt across the Hockessin Valley with the exception of John Houghton's one hundred acres.The DIXONS and the HOUGHTONS were old family friends and after Williams death Ann married John HOUGHTON.

The book Quaker Greggs refers to the Dixon family as "THE FAMOUS DICKSONS". The family's origin is Scottish from the clan of Dick(Richard)de Keith. Marshall Hervey de Keith who died in 1240, married Margaret, daughter of William Douglas who was the 3rd son of Lord Douglas of Scotland. Their son "Richard de Keith" was head of the lowlands clan. Richard was succedded by his son Thomas Dickson 1247-1307 who was killed on Palm Sunday. Thomas was succeeded by his son Thomas. When King James I transported whole Scottish communities to Ireland, many of the Dicksons left Scotland and became Quakers.  

The immigrant William's oldest son John GREGG 1668-1738 married Elizabeth COOKE in 1694. The COOKE family originated in England. In 1702 John Gregg purchased the first land sold out of Letitia's Penns Manor. On his 200 acres he built a mill which he conveyed to his son William in 1730.

William's second son George GREGG 1674-1744 married Sara HOGG, daughter of George and Ann Hogg. The HOGG family are descended from Sir John Hogge of Musselton, Scotland. George and Ann's children were John GREGG 1716-1788 who married Susanna CURLE, Richard GREGG 1718-1754 who married Anne HADLEY, and George GREGG 1720-1794 who married Elizabeth HANBY. 

Anne HADLEY'S father, Simon HADLEY, came to America in 1712 and settled in Chester Co Pa. with his wife Ruth and six children. He was the son of Simon Hadley born 1640 in Kings County, Ireland. According to the book "Hockessin" about the early settlers in the Hockesssin Valley, Simon and Ruth (Keran) purchased 1200 acres from the estate of Letitia PENN-Aubrey where they had two more children. Ruth died in 1750 and Simon married Phoebe GRUBB in 1752. In 1756 Simon was killed in his stable by a servant. 

Richard Gregg and Anne HADLEY lived as Quakers in Wilmington, Delaware. They had eight children including Simon Gregg 1736, Sarah 1738,Jacob 1741-1801, William 1744, Miriam 1746, Deborah 1747, Phoebe 1749 and Ruth who married William BRACKEN. Many of Richard and Annes children where disowned by the Quakers for marrying out of the church and they moved to the Carolinas. The book Quaker Greggs states that Jacob Gregg and his wife Susanna UNDERWOOD moved with their cousin Jacob Gregg and wife Polly HATCHER, along with the HOLLINGSWORTHS and the BRACKENS to Cane Creek Meeting in Almance Co.

JOHN JOHNSTONE.- We find in Dr. Wickes' "History of New Jersey Medicine" the following sketch of Dr. John Johnstone and his son, Lewis Johnstone, physicians at Perth Amboy:

"The head of the Amboy family, supposed to be a son of John of Ochiltree, was of the company of emigrants on board the ill-fated 'Henry and Francis' that arrived in December, 1685. He was a druggist in Edinburgh, 'at the sign of the Unicorn.'

WALLACE AND HOGE.

I. WILLIAM HOGE,1 a native of Musselburgh, Scotland, came to America shortly after 1682. On the same ship came a family consisting of a Mr. Hume, his wife, and daughter, from Paisley. On the passage the father and mother both died, and young Hoge took charge of the daughter and landed at New York, where he left the girl with a relative, and settled himself at Perth Amboy, N. J. He subsequently married the daughter, BARBARA HUME, removed to Penn's Three Lower Counties, now the State of Delaware; from thence to Lancaster county, Pennsylvania; and finally to the Valley of Virginia, about three miles south of Winchester, where he and his wife lived and died. They had a large family, many of whose descendants became distinguished in Church and State.

 From Edwin Cunnea on Hoge GenForum:

I came accross some info which I believe solves the mystrey of the ancestry of Barbara (Hume) Hoge.

Source: Ancestry,com - Search Ninewells - Biography and History - A Genealogical and Heraldic of Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland pages 449 and 595.

Info:17th century represcutative of the Hume's of Ninewells. To wit: (1) John Hume esq. married and left with a daughter. (2) Catherine his sister married Rev. George Hume (from another line). Geroge was excuted unjustly for high treason on 12/29/1682. (3) Joseph, John's brother, married twice. 1st wife unknown, 2nd wife was Catherine Falconer in which they had three children. David Hume (the celebrated historian) was the last of the three children. His father Joseph died when he was an infant. In other sources on David Hume it stated his father had several children by his first wife, thus could explain the difference in ages between David and our Barbara. Orginally I think we had Barbara's father listed as John, but changed it to James because of information from other researchers. ED

JOHN JOHNSTONE.- We find in Dr. Wickes' "History of New Jersey Medicine" the following sketch of Dr. John Johnstone and his son, Lewis Johnstone, physicians at Perth Amboy:

 "The head of the Amboy family, supposed to be a son of John of Ochiltree, was of the company of emigrants on board the ill-fated 'Henry and Francis' that arrived in December, 1685. He was a druggist in Edinburgh, 'at the sign of the Unicorn.' He is said by Woodrow to have been married to Eupham, daughter of George Scot, before embarkation, but the family tradition has been that they were married on the voyage or soon after their arrival. An old record, the correctness of which there is no reason to question, confirms the latter supposition by giving as the date of their marriage April 18, 1686.

"On the 28th of July, 1685, in consideration of certain acts promotive of the advantage and interest of East Jersey, the proprietors in England granted five hundred acres of land to George Scot, on condition that ho should reside in the Province with his family. In January, 1685-86, his daughter petitioned the proprietors to have the same confirmed to her, and on January 13th, following, her husband, Dr. Johnstone, was put in possession, of the tract in Monmouth County. The doctor established himself first in New York. It is not known when he first removed to Amboy. It must have been before 1707, as in that year he is mentioned as 'of the Jersies,' being the bail of the Rev. Francis Makemie, when arrested under the persecutions of Cornbury. For several years prior to that lie spent much of his time on a plantation in Monmouth County, named in his patent Scotschesterburg. In 1709 and the following year he was a member of the Provincial Assembly of New Jersey, but was still occasionally styled as of New York. He soon after removed there, and was mayor from 1714 to 1718. In 1720 he was a member of Governor Brirnet's Council fur that Province. About that time he removed to New Jersey and permanently resided there, but was not superseded in the Council till 1723.(6*)

"A few stones remained until recently on the banks of the Raritan designating the site of the doctor's mansion. It was not entirely destroyed until after the Revolution. It was a double two-story brick house, with a large barn arid other outhouses, and attached thereto was a spacious garden, a well-chosen collection of fruit-trees and a fine orchard, of which a few aged trees marked the site in 1856.

"In his profession he was skillful, and availed himself of the opportunities it gave to exhibit his goodness of heart, his charity, and his estimable character. On his death the following obituary appeared in the Philadelphia Weekly Mercury:

'Perth Amboy, Sept. 19, 1732 On the 7th inst., died hero in the 71st year of his age, Dr. John Johnstone, very much lamented by all who knew him, and to the inexpressible loss of the poor, who were always his particular care.'

James Alexander, writing to the doctor's friend, Governor Hunter, Sept. 20, 1732, says,-

"Dr. Johnstone died the 7th of this morn, being spent with age and fatigue in going about to serve those who wanted his assistance. I believe his family is left in tolerable good circumstances. I drew his will for him a few years before he died, when, although he was worn almost quite away, he retained his good sense and spirit, and so I am Informed he did to the last.

"He represented the people of Middlesex County and of Amboy thirteen years In the General Assembly of the Province, and for ten of them held the office of Speaker. He was one of the commissioners for settling the boundary between New York and New Jersey, (7*) and at different times held other offices with credit to himself. He had several children, a full record of whom is given in' Whitehead's Contribution to East Jersey History,' from which this sketch of Dr. Johnstone is obtained."

John, a son of Dr. John Johnstone,(6*) was a colonel in the provincial forces, his commission bearing date March 10, 1758, and he was second in rank on the Oneida station in August of that year. He was killed by a cannon ball at Fort Niagara in the course of the war. He married his cousin Euphemia, daughter of Andrew Johnstone.

David, who was the heir-at-law of his brother John, married Miss Walton, and lived and died at "Nine Partners," Dutchess Co., N.Y. Their eldest son, John, was for some years presiding judge of the Court of Common Pleas for that county, and died Aug. 19, 1850. One of their daughters, "a young lady of great merit and beauty," married John Allen, Esq., of Philadelphia, April 6, 1775; another married the Hon. Gulian Verplank, M.C., etc.; a third became the wife of Dr. Upton, then a lieutenant in the English army, and after his death married Thomas A. Cooper, the tragedian, leaving children by both husbands; another son, David, died unmarried.

Andrew Johnstone was born Dec. 20, 1694, and until 1717 or 1718 was engaged in business as a merchant in New York. In Amboy he resided for some time in an old house that stood back from the street, on the property belonging to Mr. George Merritt, which went by the lofty title of "Edenboro' Castle." This edifice was vacated and soon after destroyed on the erection of the brick edifice, now the residence of Mr. Merritt. Mr. Johnston (the children dropped the final e from their name) inherited the proprietary rights of his father, and at one time was president of the board of proprietors. He also succeeded his father in the Provincial Assembly as a representative from Amboy, and, like him, was speaker for several years. In January, 1748-49, he was chosen treasurer of the College of New Jersey, then located at Newark, and held during his life various other offices. The following obituary notice is found in the New York Mercury for July 5, 1762: "Last Thursday se'ennight (June 24th) died at Perth Amboy in an advanced age the Hon. Andrew Johnston, Esq., one of his Majesty's Council for the Province of New Jersey and Treasurer of the eastern division of the Province, A gentleman of so fair and worthy a character that truly to attempt to draw it would be throwing away words. He was really equal to what Pope means when he says, 'An honest man is the noblest work of God.' "During the last fifteen years of his life," says the historian, Smith, "he was in the Council, and a diligent attender on the business there; he had great equality of temper, circumspection of conduct, an open, yet grave, engaging mien, much goodness of heart, and many virtues both public and private." A pencil sketch of him is in the possession of Mr. Whitehead. Mr. Johnston died in his sixty-seventh year. He married Catherine, daughter of Stephanus Van Cortlandt, of New York, by whom he had two sons and six daughters, viz.: John, who married Isabella, daughter of Robert Lettice Hooper, of Trenton, in February, 1768. He was a merchant in Amboy until 1775, in partnership with Peter Barberie. In 1767 he was a member of Assembly, and was appointed one of the committee to correspond with the agent of the colony in Great Britain, the other members being Cortlandt Skinner, John Lawrence, and David Cooper. He left several children, of whom little is now positively known.

Children of William Hoge and Barbara Hume are:

i.William Hoge, born Abt. 1689 in Three Lower Counties, Penn's Province, Newark, Pennsylvania; died 1789 in Frederick Co., Virginia; married (1) Ann 09 April 1723 in Richland Monthly Meeting, Quakertown, Bucks Co, Pennsylvania; died 1759 in Bucks Co., Pennsylvania; married (2) Mary Pancoast Aft. 1759.

Notes for William Hoge:

From, Paull-Irwin A Family Sketch, pg 30:

At the same Court, January, 1744, license was granted for the first tavern, called an "ordinary", or house of entertainment. William Hoge paid the Governor's fee, and was required to "provide lodging, food, and liquors, at prices fixed by court". The liquor was to be pure and regularly inspected. This "ordinary" was located at the present village of Kernstown, near the old Presbyterian Church, Opecquon (O-peck-on), which claims rank among the first of the early churches.

From, The Ancestors of Charles Clement Heacock , Pg. 28

England declared war on France on March 29, 1744, and in 1753 the French invaded Western Pennsylvania, and succeeded in arousing the Indians against the British and the Colonists. In 1756 the Delaware Indians had joined the French and attacked the frontier settlements. The Governor of Pennsylvania was no longer a Quaker, and he declared war on the Dela wares, but through the instrumentality of the Quakers and the friendly Indians, the trouble was soon ended. Some Quakers enlisted in the armies, and were disowned by their meetings, others were disowned for seeming foo ready to furnish wagons and provisions for Braddock's expedition and other military undertakings. The legislature had a Quaker majority, but it voted liberal funds "for the king's use", which were actually war appropriations. On October 16, 1756, Mahlon Kirkbridge, William Hoge, Peter Dicks, and Nathaniel Pennock of Chester and Bucks Counties resigned from the seats to which they had been elected in the Provincial Assembly, that they might be filled by persons whose religious principles would allow them to prepare without scruple all laws necessary for the defense of the province.

THE WHITE FAMILY (AND NOTES ON THE HOGE NAME.)

THE SETTLING IN WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA.

Foote says (page 457):

"About the year 1735, Wm. Hoge removed from Pennsylvania, and settled on the Opeckon, three miles south of Winchester, Va., (Frederick County). Opeckon meeting house stands upon his tract of land.

The families of Glass, Vance, Allen, Colvin, White and others soon joined him and formed the Opeckon congregation, the oldest west of the Blue Ridge."

These names are all found in the early records of the Scotch-Irish of Pennsylvania."

(Dr. Robert White married Margaret Hoge, eldest daughter of William Hoge.)

ANCESTRY OF HANNAH WHITE (MRS. ANTHONY DUNLEVY).

(Letter to G. D. Kelley from Wm. M. Atkinson, (attorney-at-law, judge of county court of Frederick County and of the corporation court) of Winchester, Virginia. (February 21, 1899.)

"If your ancestress, Hannah White, was the person you think, we have a common ancestor.

The first White in our family that we know of here was one Dr. Robert White. When exactly he emigrated to America we do not know, but we believe about the year 1720. He was born in Scotland in the year 1688 and graduated at Edinburgh, studied medicine and became a surgeon in the British Navy. There has been a tradition in the family that he left the Navy because of having engaged in a duel with a British officer. When he came to America he visited the house of one William Hoge, then in Delaware, who had some time previously emigrated to America.

Dr. Robert White there met and married the eldest daughter of William Hoge, named Margaret Hoge (probably this was the real cause of his resigning the Navy).

Now about the year 1735, William Hoge and his son-in-law, Dr. Robert White, (our ancestor), with his children moved to Virginia and settled at or near Winchester, Virginia. (The county of Frederick was not then formed and was not until 1738.)

Dr. Robert White died in 1752 in the sixty-fourth year of his age.  

He left surviving him three sons, John, Robert and Alexander. Now just here is where we part company; we have no record of the names of the daughters of Dr. Robert White; if Hannah White was one of them, as you seem to think, she was a sister of the three sons above named. Now to return to the above named John, Robert and Alexander.  

John was my ancestor (of Wm. Atkinson). (See present Virginia line.)  

Robert lived and died here and I have never heard whether he was married or not or anything about him.

Alexander was the most distinguished of the three sons; he was sent to Scotland and educated at Edinburg. He was not in the Revolutionary war, but during that period was an active and prominent lawyer here, was elected to the first Congress in 1787-93,--a member of the Virginia Convention which adopted the Federal Constitution. He died without children, although he married." (etc.)  

From letter from (???)). WM. M. ATKINSON,

(Of Winchester, Virginia.)  

"Dr. Robert White was buried at the old Opequon church, and was a surgeon in the British Navy."  

(From letter from Mrs. Juliet A. McCard of Winchester, Va., sister of Wm. M. Atkinson.)

 Notes for John Hoge:

From Bob McLeod:

About 1729 he removed to E Pennsboro Twp, Cumberland Co., PA, where he later purchased a large tract of land from the Proprietaries, portions of which had remained in the possession of some of his descendants until after 1886.

Founded the Cumberland Valley community of Hogetown, PA, about 8 miles west of present Harrisburg. He built a church there in 1734, to which he gave a hammered pewter communion service and a pulpit bible that were still in use about 1925.

From,

Pioneer McClure Families of the Monongahela Valley

JOHN HOGE

By the will of John McClure of Amity farm, now Homestead, is noted the bequest to his son-in-law, John Hoge, and to his daughter, Elizabeth, of Washington, Pa. As they left no descendants, the notice of them is but brief. A few notes regarding this family may be of interest. One of the earliest settlers of Silver Spring Township, Cumberland County, was John Hoge, who about 1730 settled on a large tract of land on Conduaguinit Creek and near the present village of Hogestown. His wife's name was Guinthalum Owen, (said to have been a descendant of the Royal family of Wales.) After her marriage she always retained her maiden name, however--some writer suggested that she did not like the name Hogue or Hoge, being most frequently pronounced as if spelled with but three letters--Anyway she is said to have furnished the money to buy this fine property in the New World.

Their prominence in later years is remarkable as holders of official positions, both of the County and State. David Hoge, born about 1725, died December 5th, 1804, was Sheriff of Cumberland County. On April 3, 1771, he bought land on the headwaters of Chartiers Creek, Washington County, Pa. After making a survey of the estate he on November 4, 1784, resurveyed the proposed town site, and named it Washington, the first to bear the name in the United States.

On November 7, 1785, David Hoge and his wife, Elizabeth, conveyed by their deed all of these three plots to their sons, John and William Hoge. John Hoge, born September 12, 1760, died August 5, 1824. He married Elizabeth McClure, daughter of John McClure and his wife, Martha Denny McClure, shortly after they had moved from Letort Spring to their new home, "Amity farm," now Homestead. John Hoge and his wife were prominent in the social life of Washington. They had their summer home, "Meadowlands," a short distance from town, which was long regarded as one of the show places of that section. He was merchant trader, Justice of the Peace, Member of the State Legislature--where he served out the term of his brother, William, who had died.

Elizabeth, the wife of John Hoge, died April 14, 1821, and was buried in the brick walled lot in the old burying ground at Washington. John Hoge married later a daughter of William Quail, of North Strabane township, Washington County, who survived him. At her death she was buried at the new cemetery, and the remains of John Hoge, and those of his first wife were removed and re-entered in the same lot where they now may be found. Just a little anecdote of John Hoge--He was a man of prominent features, especially a very large nose. One day as he was traveling on horseback, he saw a man coming to meet him on the road, it struck Mr. Hoge that there was a man with a nose fully equal to his own, and as the stranger came up, seized his own proboscis, calling out, "Stranger pull to the right and allow us to pass." Both laughed and introduced themselves and became the best of friends.

Notes for Joreber Hoge:

Message Board Post:

William Hoge wrote his will in 1729 while still living in (East) Nottingham

Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. However, it was not probated until

1749 in Frederick County, Virginia. In it he listed his wife Barbara; son

John; son William; son-in-law Neal Thomson; son-in-law Robert White; sons

Alexander, James, and George; and daughter Joreter Hoge.

Records in Frederick

County identify the wife of Neal Thomson as Barbara. The wife of Robert

White was named Margaret. As presented below, the name of the third daughter,

"Joreter", has to be a mangled version of the name "Garrata". Garrata was

the wife of Robert Wilson. 

Although not a Quaker himself, William Hoge

was the neighbor of many Quakers in both Chester County and Frederick County.

In 1734 in Frederick County, for example, William and George Hoge were

witnesses to the Quaker marriage between George Hollingsworth and Hannah

McKay.

While still living in Chester County in 1731, three witnesses to

the marriage between Joshua Job and Margaret McKay were James, George,

and Garata "Hogg". Below is the complete reference:

Bordering Chester County, Pennsylvania

on the south is Cecil County, Maryland. William Hoge owned land in East

Nottingham Township, Chester County and in Cecil County. (The exact border

between Pennsylvania and Maryland was disputed at this time.) On 23 June

1733, Robert Wilson purchased 122 acres in Cecil County from Samuel Robinet.

The land was corner to the property line of "William Hog". Then on 3 August

1741, Robert Wilson of Orange (later Frederick) County, Virginia and his

wife Garrata sold this land to William Irwin (Cecil County Land Libre 6,

p.115-8).

In the mean time, on 5 May 1740 in Orange (later Frederick) County,

Virginia, Robert Willson had purchased 205 acres from William Hoge.

On

4 June 1755, Robert Willson and his wife Garrata sold 200 acres in Frederick

County to James Willson (Frederick County Deed Book 4, p.20-1). Although

not identified as such in the deed, James was their son. Assuming that

James was 21 years old in 1755, his estimated year of birth would be 1734.

Garrata was still unmarried as of March 1731. Hence Garrata probably married

Robert Wilson between mid 1731 and mid 1734. She must have died before

4 March 1767. On that date Robert Wilson gave 254 acres to his daughter

and son-in-law Barbara and Peter Stephens. Garrata's name did not appear

in that transaction (Frederick County Deed Book 11, p.331).

Evidently Garrata's

name was passed on to three of her granddaughters. I haven't examined the

original texts, but others have transcribed the names of these grandchildren

as Geretta/Jeretta/Georita Stephens, Georgetta/Georita Glass, and Georita

Wilson. Other interpretations of the name of Robert Wilson's wife herself

are Garnita and Garrala. (Using Garrala was understandable. It appeared

in the 1755 land sale to James Wilson. In hindsight I think I can see that

the writer used a stylized "t" which looks very much like an "l".)

I suspect

that on re-examination, we could interpret them all as something similar

to Garrata or Geretta. Of course, in William Hoge's will, her name does

appear as "Joreter". But phonetically Joreter sounds like Garatta if you

give the "G" the sound it has in "germ" and you let Ted Kennedy do the

pronouncing.

[HOGE] Garrata --third daughter of William Hoge and Barbara Hume; wife of Robert Wilson by sjz1@earthlink.net

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a note outlining the ancestors of Margaret Wilson who married Thomas

Babb (1-2-3-1-3) who was the son of Thomas Babb and Blanche Mercer.

Margaret

was the daughter of James Wilson and Margaret (Margery) Denny. [Note: In

the second edition of "Babb Families of America", p.115, she is incorrectly

listed as Denna.] Margaret's siblings were Robert and Sarah. Sarah married

a John Wilson (relationship uncertain, possibly a cousin). Robert was killed

by Indians on 4 Nov 1791 in Ohio at the battle sometimes called St. Clair's

defeat. He had been part of a military expedition under Gen. Arthur St.

Clair to subdue the Indians in that region. However, they were surprised

by the Indians and suffered heavy losses. A month earlier, on 3 Oct 1791

while still encamped on the Big Miami River in southern Ohio, Robert had

written a "memorandum" in which he had willed his personal property to

family and friends "should he loos his life in this present expedition".

He willed his largest sword and his "coalt [or coatt]" to his brother-in-law

Thomas "Bab".

Margery Denny was the daughter of David Denny and Margaret

Denny, who was the daughter of Walter Denny. The relationship between David

Denny and Walter Denny has not been positively established.

James Wilson

was the son of Robert Wilson. James wrote his will on 5 Jan 1777, at which

time he was "in perfect health and of sound mind". His will was proved

less than three months later on 1 April 1777. He probably belonged to a

company of Frederick County militia. I suspect he wrote his will just before

setting out on a military patrol against the Indians in the Wheeling-Fort

Pitt area or against the British in New Jersey. During the patrol he may

have died in an accident or from a disease, or he may have been killed

in a skirmish with the enemy. (I'm speculating.)

Unless Robert Wilson had

been married before, James Wilson's mother was named Garrata. I believe

Garrata was the daughter of William Hoge and Barbara Hume. Refer to my

29 Aug 2002 posting to the Rootsweb message board for the surname HOGE

to see my reasoning.

Because Robert, Margaret, and Sarah were underage

at the time of their father's death in 1777, Alexander White was appointed

administrator for them. Alexander's mother was Margaret Hoge, an older

sister of Garrata. Hence Alexander White was a first cousin of James Wilson.

By June 1778, James Wilson's widow Margery Denny had married Robert Lockhart

and went on to have several more children.

"Edward Graham, probably b. ca. 1675 in Rappahannock Co., Va., d. 1750 in Fairfax Co., Va., was probably Rhoda Graham's greatgrandfather. He first appears in the records in Jan., 1711/12 as a witness to deeds in Richmond Co., Va., (Richmond Co. D. B. 6, pp. 48 and 157). As shown by his will, Edward Graham's wife was named Patience, and since he had a son Stafford Graham, she may have been a daughter of Thomas Stafford, who was granted land in Stafford Co., Va. in 1697 (Northern Neck Grant Book 2, p. 272). Edward's father may have been Thomas Graham, b. 1647, who appears briefly in the records of Old Rappahannock Co., from which Richmond Co. was later formed, in 1677 and 1679 (Sweeney, "Wills of Rappahannock Co.", pp. 61, 72, and 79). A brother may have been James Graham, who appears briefly in the records of Richmond Co. in 1704 (Order Book 3, p. 305; 4, pp. 9 and 27), in Westmoreland C. in 1706 and 1715 (Westmoreland D. & W., No. 3, pp. 380 and 403; No. 5, p. 526), and died in Westmoreland Co. in 1717, his inventory being dated June 26, 1717 (D. & W. No. 6. p. 170).

Edward Graham was granted 847 acres in Stafford Co. on Broad Run in 1724 and 790 acres on Bull Run in Prince William C. in 1731 (Northern Neck Grant Book "A", p. 97, and "CL, p. 145). He possibly deeded away his Broad Run property between 1724 and 1731, as the Stafford Co. Index of Deeds (the deed books themselves have been lost) shows between 1720 and 1731 deeds of "Graham to Creel" and "Graham to Seale" (Stafford Co. D. B. 1, p. 370 and 2, p. 372), and Edward Graham was charged with only the Bull Run property in Prince William Co. (750 and 760 acres) in 1737 and 1738/9. In 1739 Edward Graham testified in a law-suit in King George Co., while living in Prince William (King George Book 2, p. 300); and in 1741 he was on the list of voters in Prince William. His land fell into Fairfax Co. on the organization of that county in 1745, and he and his wife Patience deeded away a good part of the land in 1745 and 1748, his sons, Robert, James, Edward and George being witnesses to the deeds (Fairfax Co. D. B. "A", p. 246; "B", pp. 439, 459, and 490). He also deeded land as the administrator of William Hall, decd., in 1748 (Fairfax D. B. "B", p. 439 and 459). Edward Graham's will dated Sept. 12, 1749 and probated Mar. 27, 1750 (Fairfax Co. W. B. "A-1," p. 327), divides his land among his son, James, daughters Mary Shirley and Esther Daniel, and sons Edward, Robert, George and Stafford; leaves bequests of money to his sons John, William and Charles; and leaves the rest of the estate to his wife Patience, with sons Edward, Robert, James, George and Stafford, and daghters Margaret and Patience, as residuary legatees. The 12 children of Edward and Patience Graham all seem to have been adults at the time of his death, and were probably born 1700-1730. The sons, John, Charles and William Graham, to whom their father left only money bequ3sts, were probably the eldest children, b. approximately 1700-1706. Charles was the eldest son and heir, as shown by the deeds listed below. He was probably b.ca. 1700. Edward Graham himself deeded some of his land to William West in 1748, and his sons deeded the rest of the land to him as follows:: (1) Fairfax Co. D. B. "C", p. 185, April 17, 1750, Charles Graham of Prince William Co. to William West the land left by Edward Garham the elder to Edward, Stafford and Robert Graham. (2) Same, p. 216. Jan. 26, 1750/51, George Graham of Fairfax Co. and Charles Graham of Prince Wiliam to William West 57 acres bequeathed to George by Edward Graham, Sr. The deed is signed by George Graham, Charles Graham and Jane Graham. (3) Same, p. 133. Nov. 16, 1750, Edward Graham to William West the land left him by his father. (4) Same, p. 260. Feb. 11, 1752/3, James Graham of Fairfax to William West the land left him by his father. (5) Same, p. 359. Oct. 3, 1752, Charles Graham of Prince William Co. to William West the land inherited from Robert and Stafford Graham. Robert Graham died in 1752, his inventory being dated Aug. 19, 1752 (Fairfax Co. W. B. "A", p. 259). He was married and left a wife, Martha, who m. (2) William Ware, the couple receiving 1/3 of Robert's estate in the division at the June Court, 1755 in Fairfax Co. The 1752 deed of Charles Graham would indicate that Stafford Graham, too, had died. (6) Loudoun Co., Va. D. B. "A", p. 155. april 22, 1758, Charles Graham of Prince William Co. and Mary his wife to William West of Loudoun all right to the land of his father, Edward Graham, decd., in Loudoun Co. "

The inventory of the estate of Richard Sparrow was taken 22 January 1660/1 and totalled 85, with no real estate included [MD 12:58, citing PCPR 2:2:67].

BIRTH: By about 1605 based on estimated date of marriage.

DEATH: Eastham 8 January 1660/1 [MD 6:203; see also MD 8:4].

MARRIAGE: By about 1629 Pandora _____ (assuming she was mother of Jonathan); she survived her husband. (According to some sources, in "1665 the widow [Pandora] and son [Jonathan] sold the Eastham home and removed to what is now East Orleans where Pandora probably died" [Dawes-Gates 2:765, citing CCL 32:3]; this transaction is not recorded in the Plymouth Colony land records.)

CHILD:

iJONATHAN, b. say 1629; m. (1) Eastham 26 October 1654 Rebecca Bangs [PCR 8:15], daughter of EDWARD BANGS; m. (2) by 1671 (and probably by 1669) Hannah (Prence) Mayo, daughter of THOMAS PRENCE and widow of Nathaniel Mayo [MD 14:193-203]; m. (3) Barnstable 23 November 1698 Sarah (Lewis) Cobb, daughter of George Lewis and widow of James Cobb (son of HENRY COBB) [MD 14:87; TAG 68:26].

COMMENTS: On 24 June 1639 "Mary Moorecock hath of her own voluntary will, with consent of her father-in-law, Thomas Whitton, put herself apprentice with Richard Sparrow, of Plymouth, and Pandora, his wife," for a term of nine years [PCR 1:128-29].

On 5 November 1638 "Richard Sparrow, of Plymouth, yeo[man]," was surety for William Burne (i.e., Bourne) of Duxbury [PCR 1:101]. On 7 December 1641 he was one of eight men who brought various actions against James Luxford, primarily for trespass [PCR 7:27]. On 2 October 1650 Richard Sparrow was censured for failing to report the theft of corn from his barn and for "concealing of the aforesaid act of Tho. Shereve, upon an engagement so to do unless called before authority" [PCR 2:162-63]. Sparrow won an action 7 March 1653/4 against Nathaniel Mayo for defamation [PCR 7:69]. On 5 October 1656 Captain Myles Standish brought suit against Richard Sparrow of Eastham, in behalf of Elizabeth Hopkins, charging that Sparrow had not performed the terms of an agreement concerning Elizabeth [PCR 7:80]. On 6 October 1657 Richard Sparrow won his suit against Ralph Smith for taking away a piece of timber, though having been forbidden, and refusing to give it back [PCR 7:84].

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: George Ernest Bowman took a special interest in the Sparrow family, and published a number of articles on the immigrant and his son [MD 11:231-34, 12:57-60, 14:1-5, 193-203].

In 1931 Mary Walton Ferris published a typically thorough study of Richard Sparrow and his son Jonathan [Dawes-Gates 2:763-68], and in 1960 Donald Lines Jacobus also prepared a briefer account [Ackley-Bosworth 41-42]..

On July 18, 1733, Amaziah Harding of Eastham beat his wife to death,

than tried to pretend she died of natural causes. When a neighbor

arrived to prepare the body for burial, she found Harding's wife,

Hannah, lying neatly under the covers of her bed as if she had

expired in her sleep. The neighbor became suspicious when she

undressed the body and found Mrs. Harding's corpse covered in cuts

and bruises. The coroner was summoned and he, too, came to the

conclusion that Hannah Harding was not a violent sleeper, but a

victim of a violent husband. Amaziah was executed in Barnstable on

June 5, 1734.

"We find very few cases of clearly identified rape. Certainly some of the cases where a man is accused of "attempting the chastity of" someone might have been attempted or actual rape, but the wording frequently leaves room for doubt. One clear cut case was tried on 30 October 1677, when Ambrose Fish was accused that he did "by force carnally know and ravish Lydia Fish, the daughter of Mr. Nathaniel Fish, of Sandwich aforesaid, and against her will." Rape was a capital offense and the "verdict of the jury of life and death" was that "if one evidence with concurring cercomstances be good in law, wee find him guilty. But if one evidence, with concurring cercomstances, be not good in law, wee find him not guilty." This apparently meant that Lydia Fish herself was the only witness of the act. The court hedged, sentencing him to be publicly whipped. Lydia was a granddaughter of the Reverend John Miller, and Ambrose Fish was possibly her brother."

**I'm not so sure that Lydia was Ambrose's sister, and I'm hoping that she wasn't his mother, Ambrose's mother was Lydia Miller, possibly the granddaughter of the Reverend John Miller, but more research is needed on this subject. The only other Lydia Fish that I have a record of was born in 1699.

Children of Nathaniel Fish are:

96. Johannes Holtzclau69, born Abt. 1609 in Wiedenau, Germany; died Aft. 1664 in Wiedenau, Germany. He was the son of 192. Wilhelm Holtzclau and 193. Daughter Flender. He married 97. Hebel Muess 162970.

97. Hebel Muess71, born Abt. 1610 in Schneppenkauten, Germany; died Abt. 1657 in Wiedenau, Germany. She was the daughter of 194. Henrich Flender Muess and 195. Unknown.

Notes for Johannes Holtzclau:

"Johann or Johannes Holtzklau of Weidenau (he is called by both names in the records), son of Wilhelm Holtzklau, was, as indicated previously, born ca. 1609/10, married ca. 1639/30, Hebel, probably daugher of Henrich Flender Muess of Schneppenkauten. The couple had 16 children, b. 1631-57. In 1631, at the christening of his first son, Johannes Holtzklau was teacher at Weidenau, and he probably continued to hold this position at least through the year 1635, while the Protestants dominated the country. In 1632 he seems to have owned a small part of the Schneppenkauten Hammer in the Weidenau township, but had sold whatever interest he had in it by 1653, the year of the next extant list of owners. However, his family was closely connected with the iron industry in Weidenau, and four of his sons were admitted to the Guild of Smelterers and Hammersmiths as follows: (1) Johann Holtzklaw, son of Johannes Holtzklaw of Weidenau, as a Hammersmith April 9/19, 1656; (2)Ebert Holtzklaw, son of Johannes Holtzklaw of Weidenau, as a Hammersmith 1658/9; (3) Hans Henrich Holtzklaw of Weidenau as a Hammersmith; (4) Johann Henrich Holtzklaw of Weidenau as a Moulder and Smelterer 1671/2. At the christening of his son Johann in 1640, of which the record is written in Latin, Johannes Holtzcklau is called "Vespillo", which in old German-Latin means a letter carrier. Apparently at this time he was connected with the postal service. In 1647 Johannes Holtzklau was the only Holtzklau living at Weidenau. It is uncertain when he died, but it was some time between 1664 and 1679. One migh guess that he was dead in 1664, when his son, Hans Henrich was admitted to the Guild, as there is no mention of the father's name at the admission of Hans Henrich, nor of his brother Johann Henrich in 1671. However, he seems to have been living in the Krombach parish. He probably died some time in 1664, and was certainly dead by 1679, when his youngest survinging son, Franz Holzklau, was the only Holtzklau living in the village of Wiedenau. Hebel, wife of Johannes Holtzklau, is not mentioned after 1657, when he last child was christened."

**Was Johann Holtzklaw, Hammersmith, the maker of the iron oven cover that is in the Nicholae Church in Siegen, with the name "J HKlaw?"

Marcus De Chousoy, wife, two workmen, and two boys, over twelve years of age arrived New Amsterdan 1657 on the Draetvat, Captain Jan Jansen Bestevaer, Master. I believe the ship's manifest is deposited with The Holland Society of New York. Marcus is supposed to have had a conversation aboard ship with Gerrit Dircksen Croesen and his brother. This is supposed to have been recorded in a journal Marcus kept of his voyage. If you should ever come across confirmation of Marcus's encounter with Gerrit Dircksen Croesen, I hope you will let me know. Thank you, Doris Lane.

Excerpts from History of Harlem--Riker:

"How exceedingly probably that it was the experience of Huguenot exiles who, a little more than two centuries ago, found a refuge at Harlem, most of whom came from this section of France we are now skirting. Along the fruitful valley of the Somme were scattered the homes of our Demarest, Tourneur, Cresson, Disosway, not to enlarge the number, most of them prominent among the Harlem settlers, and heads of well known families hereafter to be noticed. Others will be brought to light as we extend the voyage. Very interesting is Picardy, whence came so many of the French exiles who made their home in Harlem, for longer or shorther periods,, in all some thirty families, of which a full third were our Tourneur, Cresson, Demarest, Casie and Disosway, all of who except the last showed a magistrates.

Marcus du Sauchoy was a witness to a will April 15th, 1670 of Glaude [Claude] Delameter and wife Hester DuBois.

Marcus Du Sauchoy brought a charge against John Archer, December 1, 1670, of some very bad usage, and cited Dirck Everts to tell what he knew about it. The latter testified that, about four weeks before, Archer threw Du Sauchoy's furniture out of the house, but depondent knew not for what cause. The matter here rested for future action.

Several months passes before an English government succeeded to the Dutch, and the interval was marked by a little shrewd preparation for it. This caused considerable litigation in town court; several parited sued the Tourners, to recover work done for Delavall, by direction of the elder Tourneur, while acting as his agent in connection which suits the old story of Tourneur's having killed a man in France was again revived by the Disosways, and as the widow said "to the great damage of herself and her children." These demands for payment were generally sustained, though it appeared that the late Tourneur had declared to Martin Hardewyn, "I will no more pay the debts of Delavall, but I will give you an order upon him to pay you."

The Tourners apparently intended an eary removal to their farm on Montagne's Flat, which was to be Daniel's inheritance. They were still annoyed by that injurious report, the more keenly felt, now that the object of it lived only in their affections. But the widow, bent on putting a stop to it, had on December 22nd made a complaint to the Mayor's Court, that Elizabeth Nightendale "had greatly defamed her husband deceased." Thereupon "the Court ordered that, it being formerly determined, the defendant shall, either at Harlem or in this Court, make an acknowledgement and pay all costs." Lysbet has to comply, but preferred a jouney to the city to facing exultant adversaries whom she would meet at the town court. Her appearance, January 19th, the day the magistrated were swore in, is thus noticed: "Deft brought into ye Court her suplicatory peticon, in weh was her acknowledgment forher wrong and injury to ye Pltfs husband; weh ye Court accepted off, conditionally she behaved her selfe well, and pay all costs."

****(footnote to the above excerpt) Marc du Sauchoy, ancestor of the Disosway family, has a place in our introductory sketches of the French refugees, etc. As we follow these homeless refugees from exciting scenes in the Old World, when, no longer the suffering victims of despotism, we can only contemplate them amid peaceful walks and engaged in commomplace pursuits, we cannot but mark with interes the happy effects of the change in their ambitious and laborious efforts to provide ahome and living for themselves and families--the admirable versatility, especially in the choice of new callings, with which they adapted themselves to curcumstances every way extraordinary. Our Disosway, late wool-carder, on his first visit to this country, found employment in cleadning up some land at Flatbush for Cornelis Van Ruyven. Well pleased the island, and being present, June 17, 1655, when countryman, Pierre, Terracon, bought a farm at Mespat, Disosway went there on his return in 1657, and leasing Burger Joris mill, at Dutch Kills, the former wood-cutter now became a miller. This proving a failure, but by no fault of his, gave it up for a plantation, and turned to farming in the town of Brooklyn, to which place he and wife, April 10, 1661, transferred their church connection from New Amsterdam. Selling his farm a year later to Pierre Prae, from Dieppe, who had refuged at Leyden when Disosway was there, Marc appears at Harlem, January 3, 1664 as prosecutor of a claim against Glaude le Maistre for 95 1/2 guilders, and soon after removed here and hired lands of Jean le Roy. How long was the lease we know not, but it had expired March 15, 1667, dae of their settlement. Archer now induced him to take a farm at Fordham, where he continued to live a number of years.

The quarrel with the Tourneurs, grown bitter as many in feudal story, was shown in the mutual disposition to vex one another. The charge of homicide, reiterated so persistently, was met by recriminations even worse, till the local magistrates became weary of it. Wisely, the Mayor's Court cooled Dame Disosway's itching to push her adversary to the wall by making good her charge, and but the rejection of her offer to send her to France for proof, we might know more of the affair in question. The settlement of some old accounts between the parties, March 4, 1674, in presence of the magistrates, was another step toward cessation of hostilities. Still Lysbet, but four days after, made another charge in the Mayor's Court against the widow Tourneur, but it was dismessed as "a vesatious suit," with costs to the plaintiff, and no more is heard of the quarrel.

Disosway must have had means, to pay 80 guilders for "a Book of Marytyrs and other," from the estate of Jean le Comte, as he did July 2, 1675. He bought lots Nos. 8, 9, on Hoorn's Hook, from Jan Delameter, November 29, 1679, but presently sold them. On June 7, 1683, he and wife took letters from the Dutch to the French church, newly formed under Rev. Pierre Daille. He soon moved to Staten Island, where 225 acres of land near Daniel's Neck were laid out to him April 5, 1684, and for which he got a patent July 16, 1685. In 1689 Staten Island partook of the Leisler excitement. Disosway informed the government that many of neighbors had left thier houses and taken to the woods, "for fear of the Papists." He was still living October 1, 1706. His children, as far as known, were Madeleine, born 1657, who married Martin Hardewyn (as the Dutch wrote it, but perhaps Ardenne); Marcus, born 1659; Jeanne, born 1662, married Conrad Hendricks Boch, of Harlem; Jean, born 1665 and Maria, born 1669. Marcus joined the Dutch church, New York, November 30, 1676, but later took a letter to the French church. Succeeding to his father's lands[Marcus, Jr.], he petitioned, November 27, 1708, for two vacant tracts next to him, stating that he "hath been an inhabitant of Staten Island, and has followed husbandry upwards of thirty years past, and hath nine children, four whereof are sons, brought up to husbandry along with him." This was no doubt granted, as by his will, made December 23, 1713, and proved January 27, 1714, he gives each child a farm, ranging from 88 to 95 acres. But three sons were then living, viz: Job, who married Sarah Deny; Israel, who married Gertrude van Deventer, and Gabriel. His daughters were, Elizabeth, wife of Peter Barberie, Susannah, wife of Daniel Hendricks, Mary, wife of Thomas Eyres; Dianah, wife of Hendrick Brees, and Sarah, unmarried. Part of the original Disosway farm, with the old stone house upon it, is till owned and occupied by some of the descendants. Labadists must have restored faded reminiscences of the father of the sect, Labadie, when by his eloquence he so moved the hears of the people of Amiens. If others had person knowledge of those scenes, as Demarest, Disosway, Cresson, they had removed, and the interest which the travelers awakened at Harlem was probably confined to the objects of their visit, their character and movements. Professing the doctrices of the Dutch Church, till they began to make proselytes to their peculiar social ideas, which nearly resembled those of the Shaking Quakers. But they gained over to their views members of several respectabel families, and those of Beekman, Bayard, Cresson, and Montany, some whom were personally persuaded to join the community established by Sluyter at Bohemia Manor, in Maryland."

From "Annals of Staten Island" Disosway:

The name of Du Secoy is found among the Hugenot families who left France before the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. It has been ascertained, from the State records, that Marcus, Job, Peter, Israel, Susanne, settled on Staten Island, opposite Perth Amboy, more than two centuries ago. [This is Marcus, Jr.] The name of Marcus is mentioned in the colonial history in 1673, petitioning for ment to be sent to Court at Fort William Henry. A portion of the land purchased by this family (500 acres), and the stone house erected upon it, is still owned and occupied by some of the descendants. Like many other French names, unpronouncable to English and Dutch tongues, thishas undergone various changes in the course of two hundred years. In the Dutch Church baptismal records, the oldest and most reliable authority, it is always written Du Secoy and Du secay. In the County records, often copied by careless or illiterate clerks, the name is spelled Dus Souchoy, Dusway, Dusuchoy, Dussoway, Desoway, Dusosway, Disosway. the fact that the original emigrants were Huguenots, is evidence of their individual piety, and it is said that, during the war of the Revolution, though surrounded by enemies, they were firm in their adherence to the cause of their country.

There are seveeral of the name mentioned in the County records as having purchased land as early as 1687. The following are taken from old church records:

Marcus Du Secoy has a son Gabriel, baptised April 20, 1703, at which Susanna Du Secoy was sponsor; these were, probably two of the original emigrants.[We know that this is Marcus, Jr. and his wife.] As there was no Gabriel among them, it was Gabriel whose baptism we have just noticed, who was a sponsor at the baptism of his relative's (probably sisters) child, in January, 1725, when Dina Du Secoy, wife of Hendrick Bries, had a daughter baptized; she had a son Hendrick baptized three years previous.

Israel, and Gertrude Van Deventer, his wife, had a daughter baptized June 3, 1722.

Job, and Sarah Deny, his wife, had a son Johannes baptized September 22, 1723.

Cornelius, and Catherine, his wife, had a daughter Ann baptized December 9, 1757.

Mark and Eliza Cortelyou married November 2, 1790.

From, "Pre-Revolutionary Dutch Houses and Families in Northern New Jersey and Southern New York," by Rosalie Fellows Bailey. Originally published by WilliamMorrow & Company in 1936 in alimited edition of 334 copies for the Holland Society of New York. Introduction by Franklin D. Rooselvelt, Chairman of the Holland Society of New York. Later published by Dover Publications, Inc., 180 Varick Street, New York, NY 10014, 1958. 612 pages.

"This house was located in western Richmond County (Staten Island), New York, in the fields on the bank of the Arthur Kill (the body of water that separates New Jersey from Staten Island) off the Arthur Kill Road near Outerbridge crossing of Richmond Valley and south of Charleston (or Creischerville) in a region known as Sandy Ground at the time of the Revolution. This house is believed to have been built somewhere in the 1690's by Marc du Sauchoy, Sr. ( a French Protestant ) or by his son Marcus or Marck Dusochay, Jr. But, it could have even been built later by Mark Jr.'s son, Israel Dissosway (b. ca 1700, d. 1753-54 ) who inherited the land, in 1713, on which the house was located. The house was stone, white washed, covered by a gable roof with deep overhanging eaves both front and back. It was of greater depth than many Staten Island homes. In the rear was a later frame addition. Most additions to houses were made to the sides of the original structure especially with the marriage of a son. A mill (purchased and rebuilt by descendants in 1803) was located at the mouth of Mill Creek several hundred yards from this house. Dissosway descendants lived here until the end of the 19th century. The photo was taken about 1900 and the house was torn down in 1926.

The first serious mass attempt to settle Staten Island (other individuals had been driven out by Indians before) was in 1661. The English takeover from the Dutch was in 1664. All Dutch land grants had to be turned in under penalty of forfeiture and were confirmed at a moderate fee. The final land purchase from the Indians was in 1670 and about 100 families lived on the island at that time. The Dutch recaptured the island in 1673 for a short while but the English reclaimed it again. Staten Island was organized into Richmond County in 1683. Lots were granted usually in multiples of 80 acres. Most original houses were of squared logs or dugouts until fields could be cleared. Most permanent houses were of irregular stone gathered from the fields with little attempt being made to lay them in courses. Inhabitants were mostly Dutch and Huguenots. In 1668, the Waldensians (Reformed Church) established a church at Stony Brook and the Huguenots one at Fresh Kill (Green Ridge). In 1680, the Dutch organized a church on the north side of the island. The Dutch depended on a monthly visit from a Dutch minister until 1718.

In 1684, Marc du Sauchoy, Sr. (Madeleine's father) was granted 255 acres on the west side of Staten Island. In 1695, Marc is granted more land plus he purchased 160 more acres with a house. His land patents were renewed (usually done after land has been put into cultivation) in 1702. Marc was alive and 80 years old according to the 1706 census, but no wife is mentioned. It is not really known when he died nor is it clear if he left a will? He, too, just seems to disappear from the face of the earth all of a sudden.

His son Mark Jr. ( baptised 1659) and wife Susanna sold some land in 1703. She is not mentioned in the 1706 census nor are the three sons who are all born by this time, but three daughters are mentioned, yet the wife and sons mysteriously reappear later on? In 1708 and 1710, he purchases more land. In 1712, he and another wife, Jane, sold some land. Also in 1712, he petitions for two water side vacant lots next to the land where he resided. There is more land adjoining these lots, but inland, which he owns. There is another piece of land ( sold in 1723 by a son, Job), containing a house which is believed to have been the homestead of Marc Sr. Another property ( sold in 1725-26) was interited by Mark Jr.'s sons Israel and Gabriel from their mother.

Mark Jr. died in 1712/13. In Mark Jr.'s will, a water side lot with Mark Jr.'s house went to Job. The south water side lot went to Gabriel. Inland lots went to daughters. The north water side lot where the subject house is located went to Israel ( Israel's son, Cornelius, is buried there). None of these particular lots were to be sold but were to be inherited by his children's issue. His will also made the provision that his wife chose who she wanted to live with and if no agreement could be reached, the children were to build her a house at their expense."

From, "A Family History: Recording Ancestors of Russell Snow Hitchcock," by Russell Snow Hitchcock:

Brown Ancestry

William Brown

William Brown #681[author's numbering system] came from England before 1643 and died at Eastham about 1694. On 16 July 1649 he married Mary Murdock #682. He settled first at Plymouth and was listed in 1643 as able to bear arms. At a town meeting there on 10 December 1646 it was voted that those who did not attend town meetings should pay 12 pence and William Brown was a signer.

Mary Murdock came from England with Thomas Whiton and his wife on the ship Elizabeth and Ann in May 1635 when she[Mary] was ten years old. Thomas Whiton mentioned her as a daughter-in-law which probably meant step daughter. She lived with the family of Richard Sparrow and his wife Pandora from 24 June 1639 until her marriage. William Brown's will was dated 27 June 1685 and recorded on 7 April 1694 in which he mentioned his wife and children.

**It appears that Audry Morecock/Murdock Whiton died before 1639, as her husband, Thomas, married Winifred Harding in 1639. That is the same year that her daughter, Mary, went to live with the Sparrow family--what was the relationship between the Sparrow family and Audry? Were Audry and Pandora Sparrow sisters?

**I did find reference to Audry's surname as being Cook, but have not investigated as of yet.

iii.Bennett Morecock81, born 1621; married John Smith 07 December 1638 in Eastham, Barnstable Co., Massachusetts.

Notes for John Smith:

JOHN SMITH

25 July 1633: "John Smith hath covenanted to serve John Jenny the full term of seven years, after the manner of an apprentice, begining the 24 of June, this present year; at the expiration whereof, the said John Jenny to give him twelve bushels of Indian corn, & twenty-five acres of land" [PCR 1:16].

2 January 1633/4: "... whereas John Smith, being in a great extremity formerly, to be freed of the same bound himself as an apprentice to Edward Dowty [Doty] for the term of ten years, upon the petition of the said John the Court took the matter into hearing, & finding the said Edw: had disbursed but little for him, freed the said John from his covenant of ten years, & bound him to make up the time he had already served the said Edward the full term of five years; and at the end thereof, the said Edward to give him double apparel, & so be free of each other" [PCR 1:23].

COMMENTS: By the terms of their service, these two Plymouth records seem to be for two distinct John Smiths. No evidence allows identification with any later John Smith of New England.

The next man of this name to appear in Plymouth Colony was John Smith, laborer, who married Bennett Morecock on 7 December 1638 [PCR 1:103, 107, 127]; he might be one of the two servants recorded above, but he might also be a third John Smith.

Notes for Joseph Harding:

From, The Compendium of American Genealogy by Virkus:

Joseph Harding (d. 1633) from Eng. with his brother Richard , and sister Mary, wife of Sir Robert Gorges, the explorer, 1623; settled at Eastham, MA; m. 1624 Martha Doane,( d. 1633).Re: Joseph Harding - MA

Posted by: Anita Date: October 07, 2000 at 17:38:11

In Reply to: Joseph Harding - MA by Harry Merrihew of 2342

I just sent this information to another person researching Joseph and Martha, so I just copy and pasted. Hope that's ok!

I have that Joseph Harding, who married Martha Doane, was the son of John

Harding, brother of Richard (md. 1st wife, then Elizabeth Adams) and John

(md. Mary ?) who came to America together in 1623. From a Harding book

written on the family of Abner Clark Harding: "Joseph came to New England

in 1623 with brothers Richard and John, and settled at Braintree, MA as his

name appears on the records. He was probably a 'mariner', engaged in

fishing and after his marriage in 1624 to Martha Doane of Plymouth, he

removed to Cape Cod. He died in 1630 and left a widow Martha, who died at

Plymouth in 1633, leaving only personal property, in that jurisdiction

inventoried October 8, 1633 by James Hurse, Francis Cook, and John Doan, at

10, 18, 6, and a young son Joseph to the care of her brother John Doane.

Joseph Harding was a member of the Gov. Gorges party, which was abandoned by

him, and he removed to Plymouth."

From "The Hardings in America", 1925, by Wilbur Judd Harding: "John Harding

evidently came with his brothers and the Gorgest party to the New

World....."

These brother's parents were John Harding, born at Eastham, Devonshire,

England in 1567. He married Mary ???, who was born at Northampton, England

in 1570. From the Abner Clark Harding Book: "John Harding of Horthampton,

England whose will was dated in 1636, in which was granted certain real and

personal property to his brother William and to his sons Richard, Amos,

John, Lemuel and Oliver. This will was filed March 3, 1637 and contains a

notation that the testator died January 14, 1637. (this would explain why

Joseph was not included in his father's will) The will mentions that the

testator was then in his 70th year, thus fixing the date of his birth as

1567. He was undoubtedly a husbandman and a direct descendant of Fitz

Harding. It also appears that he was an elder brother of William Harding,

the father of Mary, afterwards Lady Gorges."

This John and brother William were sons of Richard and Martha ??? Harding.

Richard was born Northampton, England in 1530, married about 1564.

Richard was the son of Edward Harding, born about 1513 and Joan Benning,

born about 1517. Keep in mind that information for these 1st three

generations, up to Richard and Joseph is information gathered from other

researchers, without primary sources.

Joseph and Martha Doane Harding had sons John, born about 1625 and married

Hannah Hurst; and Joseph Harding who married Bethiah Cook. The pages I have

from the Abner Clark Harding book lists the genealogy for Joseph and Bethiah

Cook Harding's line down to Abner Clark Harding's generation, if you are

interested.

Hope this helps.

Notes for Martha Doane:

From, Pioneers of Massachusetts, Surnames G-H, pg 212:

HARDING....

Widow Martha, Plymouth, taxed 1632. She d. leaving 1 son in the custody of Mr. Done. Inv. Oct. 8, 1633 [Reg. IV 34]. John of Duxbury, atba, in 1643, may be this son. Phebe who married John Brown in 1634, and Winyfride, who m. Thomas Whiton in 1639, are not accounted for.

From, "The Great Migration Begins, Immigrants to New England 1620-1633, Volume II G-O," by Robert Charles Anderson:

MARTHA HARDING

ORIGIN: Unknown

MIGRATION: 1632

FIRST RESIDENCE: Plymouth

ESTATE: "Widow Harding" was assessed 9s. in the Plymouth tax list of 25 March 1633.

On 28 October 1633 "John Done(Doane) presented an inventory of the goods and chattels of Martha Harding, deceased, who, in the behalf of her son, was allowed the administrator of the said Martha". The inventory totalled 20lbs 18s. 6d. and included no real estate. The estate showed disbursements to "her husband's brothers in England, to one eight pounds to another nine pounds to another three pounds"; "This Martha Harding died without will leaving one son in the custody of Mr. Joh Done the administrator of the said Marth...." **This son's name is Joseph Harding**

BIRTH: By about 1612 based on estimated date of marriage (and probably some years earlier).

DEATH: Plymouth between 25 March 1633 (tax assessment) and 28 October 1633 (administration of estate).

MARRIAGE: By about 1632 _______Harding, who presumably died in England before his widow and son sailed for New England.

CHILD:

1. JOSEPH, b. by 1632; m. Eastham 4 April 1660 Bethiah Cooke, daughter of JOSIAS COOKE.

ASSOCIATIONS: It is likely that Martha Harding was sister to JOHN DOANE, who administered her estate and took her son, Joseph, into his household after her death. Joseph Harding was complained of on 3 June 1652 for "carrying an Indian's gun unto the smith to be mended in his uncle's name," and it is assumed by some that the uncle mentioned here would be JOHN DOANE.

COMMENTS: There were others by the name of Harding in early Plymouth, but with no obvious connection to Martha Harding: John, b. by 1627 (in Duxbury section of 1643 Plymouth list of men able to bear aarms; Phebe who married 26 March 1633 John Brown; and Winifred who married 22 November 1639 Thomas Whiton.

From, "Genealogical Register of the Descendants of Several Ancient Puritans, Vol. IV," by Rev. Abner Morse, A. M.

HARDING

CHAPTER II.

II. Joseph Harding left a widow Martha Harding, who d. at Plymouth in 1633, leaving only personal property in Plym. Jurisdiction, inventoried Oct. 8 of that year, by James Hurst, Francis Cook, and John Doane, at 20:18:6, and a young son, Joseph, to the care of John Doane, to whom she is supposed to have previously committed an elder son John. If her husband came with Gov. Gorges in 1623(?) he was probably one of the company who, on being abandoned by him, removed to Plymouth, or his family after his death did so, where his widow was taxed 9s. Jan. 2, 1632-3, when the tax lists begin. Dea. John D., probably her brother, who had been an assistant, afterwards, removed from Plym. to Duxbury, and in 1644 to Eastham, taking her sons with him. Here they completed their minority, when they returned to Braintree, not to become proprietors of the town, but to occupy their patrimonial estate, of which, neither the ignoring of the claims of Gorges, nor the grant of Braintree to Boston, and the assignment of her lands to others, had deprived them.

1. Joseph and Martha Harding of Braintree and Plymouth, had,

2. John, B. about 1624-7, "able to bear arms, 1643."

3. Joseph, b. about 1629; m. Bethiah Cook.

2. John, after the death of his father, seems to have lived with his maternal uncle, Dea. John Doane, and to have removed with him and his younger brother Joseph to Duxbury, where, in 1643, he was enrolled as able to bear arms. The next year, Dea. D. removed to Eastham, and John afterwards settled, as is presumed, upon land hard by his uncle Richard, which had been assigned by Gorges to his father Joseph at Wessagussett, and which by the laying out of the towns had fallen into Braintree. Here for a time his brother Joseph when of age, as a co-heir, seems to have joined him, and they continued their adquaintance with Doct. Starr of Boston, previously of Disb., while they resided there with Dea. Doane. He was probably the father of

1. Sarah, "dau. of John," who m. May 14, 1669, John Tower at Hing.

2. John, who m. Hannah ___________, and about 1707 removed to Bridgewater.

3. Joseph, after completeing his minority with Dea. Doane at Eastham, came to Braintree, and between 21 1650 and Feb. 3 1659-60, is mentioned in the settlement of the estates of Robert Button, Adam Winthrop and Comfort Starr, all of Boston. He m. April 1, 1660, Bethiah Cook, dau. of Josiah and Elizabeth (Ring) Dean Cook of Eastham, formerly of Plymouth, and one of the grantees of Little Compton. He was early admitted a citizen of Eastham, where his 10 children were born, in the naming of whom he has told us that his father was Joseph and his mother Martha. He had,

1. Martha, b. Dec. 13, 1662, named after her paternal grandmother, m. Feb. 19, 1682, Samuel Brown.

2. Mary, b. Aug. 19, 1665, named after her maternal gr. grandmother, widow Mary Ring.

3. Joseph, b. July 8, 1667, named after his paternal grandfather and father.

4. Josiah, b. Aug 15, 1669, names after his maternal grandfather, m. Hannah___________

5. Maziah, (Amaziah) b. Nov 1, 1671, m. Hannah______________.

6. John, b. Oct. 9, 1673, d. June 11, 1697, gave all of his estate to his wife Susannah. His mother swore to his nuncupative will, July 8, 1697.

Connecticut Puritan Settlers

BROWN, PETER, of Windsor, (by tradition) was a son of Peter Brown, who came to Plymouth in the Mayflower, in 1620. The latter had no family in 1620; in the division of lands at Salem in 1623, he had one acre of land assigned him, and had neither wife or children; but in 1627, in the division of cattle, his name with that of Martha and Mary Brown, was named, each one share in the lot. He died in 1633, and his inventory, presented Oct. 4, 1633. The order of the court in the settlement of his estate, speaks of his having had "divers children by divers wives." Martha was probably his first wife at Salem, though he might have been married in England. His wife Mary administered upon the estate. He settled 15 on two of his daughters, Mary and Priscilla, and Mary was placed in the care of John Dene and Priscilla in the care of William Gibson. The remainder of the estate was given to his widow, for the support of her young family. In 1644, Mary and Priscilla, one aged 17 years, were placed by the court with their uncle John Brown, of Duxbury. John Brown m. Phebe Harding, March 26, 1633; he d. and his will was proved in 1682. His daughter Remember had m. Josiah Wormell, and had grandchildren John, Phebe and Lydia. If Peter Brown, of Wi., was a son of Peter, who came to Salem in the Mayflower, he must have been a small child, and his name not mentioned, as none of his younger children were mentioned by name in the settlement of his estate. (Facts from W. R. Russell, Reg. Deeds, and Old Col. Rec.) Peter, of Salem, d. 1633; Peter, of Wi., was b. 1632; his monument at Wi., says he d. 1692, aged 60. The record of deeds at Wi., notes him as the owner of tracts of land at Wi., from 1658 to 1664. Peter, of Wi., m. Mary Gillet, of Wi., July 15, 1658, and died 1692; had children, Mary, b. May 2, 1659; Hanna, b. Sept. 29, 1660; Abigail, b. Aug. 8, 1662; Hepzibah, b. Nov. 19, 1664; Peter, Jr., b. March 12, 1664; John, b. Jan. 8, 1668; Jonathan, b. March 30, 1670; Cornelius, b.

From, The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633:

JOHN BROWN

ORIGIN: Unknown

MIGRATION: 1632

FIRST RESIDENCE: Duxbury

OCCUPATION: Weaver.

FREEMAN: Took oath of fidelity at Duxbury, perhaps in 1657 [PCR 8:182].

EDUCATION: Signed his will by mark.

OFFICES: In Duxbury section of 1643 Plymouth Colony list of men able to bear arms [PCR 8:189].

ESTATE: Assessed 9s. in Plymouth tax lists of 25 March 1633 and 27 March 1634 [PCR 1:10, 27].

On 8 June 1650 William Allin of Sandwich sold to John Browne of Duxbury, weaver, about thirty acres of upland in Duxbury "being one part of three of land which appertained unto the children of Peter Brown, brother unto John" [PCLR 1:186, cited in TAG 42:41]. On 13 August 1679 Ephraim Tinkham of New Plymouth sold to John Brown of Duxbury two acres of meadow "one of which I had in right of Mary my wife, daughter of Peter Brown deceased" [PCLR 5:197, cited in TAG 42:41]. On 7 November 1679 William Snow of Bridgewater sold to John Brown "all that my one third of 25 acre lots of land formerly of Peter Brown of Duxbury" [PCLR 5:197, cited in TAG 42:41].

In his will, dated 15 April 1672 and sworn 5 June 1684, John Brown of Duxbury, planter, bequeathed "unto Pheebe my wife all my houses, lands, & cattells & movables for term of her life, & as for cattells & movables to be disposed of at her discretion, and at the end of her life I give this aforementioned houses & lands unto my son-in-law Josiah Wormall & unto his wife Remember my true & natural daughter, and at the end of their lives the aforementioned houses & lands I give unto John Wormall my grandchild at the decease of his father & mother, and if God so dispose that the aforesaid John Wormall be deceased before he do or may by right enjoy it then I give it equally between Pheebe & Lyddia my grandchildren" [PCPR 4:2:128].

BIRTH: By about 1610 based on date of marriage.

DEATH: By 5 June 1684 (probate of will).

MARRIAGE: 26 March 1634 Phebe Harding [PCR 1:26]; she was named in her husband's will, 15 April 1672.

CHILD:

iREMEMBER, b. say 1648; m. by about 1668 Josiah Wormall [MD 43:154-59].

ASSOCIATIONS: Brother of PETER BROWN of Plymouth.

COMMENTS: The identification of John Brown of Duxbury as brother of Peter was published in 1957 by Donald Lines Jacobus and again in 1966 by Florence Barclay [TAG 33:214-22, 42:35-42]. More recently Gerald W. McFarland repeated this identification, and added to it an explicit argument showing why this John Brown was not the same man as the John Brown who resided in Plymouth, Taunton and Rehoboth, and served frequently as an Assistant of Plymouth Colony [NEHGR 140:331-32].

It remains to demonstrate that John Brown, brother of Peter, was the man taxed in Plymouth in 1633 and 1634, thus placing his arrival as early as 1632, and removing any evidence for the presence of the more prominent John Brown in Plymouth prior to 1635.

John Browne of Plymouth, Taunton and Rehoboth was referred to in the records as "Mr." or "gent." He was elected an assistant on 5 January 1635/6 [PCR 1:36], and had, along with Timothy Hatherly, been admitted as a freeman on the same day [PCR 1:4]. From that date on, he was frequently named to high office, and was one of the most important men in the colony.

The tax list entries for 1633 and 1634 assess John Brown at nine shillings, the lowest amount assessed. Mr. John Browne, the assistant, would have had an estate large enough to earn a higher assessment. John Brown, brother of Peter, fits the economic profile of these tax assessments better, and we already know that he was in Plymouth at least by 1633, based on his date of marriage.

Thus, the evidence is consistent with the arrival of John Brown, brother of Peter, by 1632, in time to appear in the 1633 tax list, and of Mr. John Browne in 1635, followed by immediate admission as a freeman and election as an assistant. [For more on this John Brown, see Phantom File.]

John Brown may have lived for some time in Plymouth before his removal to Duxbury, but the earliest records for this man (two tax lists and marriage) may have been from either town, as the colony records at this date do not differentiate among Plymouth, Duxbury and Scituate.

Since John Brown of Duxbury had arrived by 1632, there is a chance that he was the John Brown who sailed on the Lyon in 1632, but reasons are given in the sketch of JOHN BROWN of Watertown for thinking that he is more likely this passenger.

The estimated date of birth for daughter Remember is based on the crude estimate that she married by about 1668, based on her father's will which shows that she had three children by 1672. Josiah Wormall was born in Rowley in 1642. Remember was in fact probably born somewhat earlier than 1648, but still probably some years after her parents' marriage.

PETER BROWN

ORIGIN: Unknown

MIGRATION: 1620 on Mayflower

FIRST RESIDENCE: Plymouth

FREEMAN: In "1633" Plymouth list of freemen ahead of those made free on 1 January 1632/3 [PCR 1:4].

EDUCATION: Inventory includes one Bible valued at 3s.

ESTATE: In list of "meersteads & garden plots of [those] which came first laid out 1620" on south side of street next to John Goodman [PCR 1:3].

In 1623 Plymouth land division "Peter Browen" received one acre as a passenger on the Mayflower [PCR 12:4]. In 1627 Plymouth cattle division Peter Brown, Martha Brown and Mary Brown were the fourth, fifth and sixth persons in the eighth company [PCR 12:11].

Peter Brown assessed 18s. in Plymouth tax list of 25 March 1633 [PCR 1:10]; widow Brown assessed 9s. in list of 27 March 1634 [PCR 1:28].

The inventory of the estate of "Peter Browne of New Plymouth deceased" was taken 10 October 1633 and presented at court on 28 October 1633, on which date the widow, Mary Brown, was granted administration [MD 1:79-82, citing PCPR 1:7-8; PCR 1:17].

On 11 November 1633 a court of assistants at Plymouth ordered that "whereas Peter Browne died without will, having diverse children by diverse wives, his estate amounting to an hundred pounds, or thereabouts, it is ordered, that Mary, his wife, who is allowed the administra~trix of the said Peter, forthwith pay down fifteen pounds for the use of Mary Browne, daughter of the said Peter, to Mr. Joh. Done, of Plymoth aforesaid, with whom the said Court have placed the said Mary for nine years; at the end whereof the said John is to make good the said fifteen pounds to her or her heirs, if in case she die. Also it is further ordered, that the said widow Mary Browne pay or cause to be paid into the hands of Mr. Will[iam] Gilson the full sum of fifteen pounds, for the use of Prisilla Browne, another of the daughters of the said Peter, the Court having placed the said Prisilla with the said Will[iam] for 12 years, at the end whereof the said Will[iam] is to make good the same unto her, as her father's legacy as aforesaid; & to that end the said John & Will[iam] either stand bound for other for performance of the several payments, as also for such other performances of meat, drink, clothing, &c., during the said term, as is meet.

"And for the rest of the estate, the widow having two children by the said Peter, together with her own 3d, it is allowed her for bringing up the said children, provided that she discharge whatsoever debts shall be proved to be owing by the said Peter, & the legacies given by the Court. For performance whereof she & Mr. Will[iam] Brewster bound in two hundred pounds" [PCR 1:18-19].

BIRTH: By about 1600 based on estimated date of marriage.

DEATH: Plymouth between 25 March 1633 (tax list) and 10 October 1633 (inventory).

MARRIAGE: (1) By 1626 widow MARTHA FORD, who died in 1630 or 1631 [TAG 42:35-42].

(2) By 1631 Mary _____, who survived her husband by at least one year [PCR 1:28], but was probably dead by 1647 when one of her daughters sold land without referring to the widow's dower rights.

CHILDREN:

With first wife Martha (_____) Ford

iMARY, b. about 1626 (and certainly before the division of cattle on 22 May 1627); m. by 27 October 1647 Ephraim Tinkham [PCLR 1:146; PCR 12:146].

iiPRISCILLA, b. about 1628; m. Sandwich 21 March 1649 William Allen [PCR 8:9].

With second wife Mary

iiiREBECCA, b. about 1631; m. by about 1654 William Snow [PCLR 5:197].

ivChild, b. by 1633; d. by 1647.

ASSOCIATIONS: JOHN BROWN of Plymouth by 1632 was brother of PETER BROWN.

COMMENTS: In his list of those who came on the Mayflower Bradford included Peter Browne in a group of men without families [Bradford 443]. In his accounting of the Mayflower passengers as of 1651, Bradford tells us that "Peter Browne married twice. By his first wife he had two children who are living and both of them married; and the one of them hath two children. By his second wife he had two more. He died about sixteen years since" [Bradford 447].

The evidence for the marriages of Peter Brown's three daughters is largely from deeds in which his land was sold by his sons-in-law, with the consent of his daughters. The earliest and best treatment in print on this point is an article published in 1966 by Florence Barclay [TAG 42:35-42, citing PCLR 1:146, 186, 5:197 (bis)]. The claim has also been made that Peter Brown of Windsor was son of the Plymouth Peter, but these same deeds, showing that each of the three daughters controlled one-third of the real estate, provide the best evidence that there was no such son, and Robert S. Wakefield argued this in greater detail in 1979 [NGSQ 67:253-54]. Barbara Merrick has argued for some estimated dates slightly different from those used here [MQ 53:10-13].

The seventh volume of the Five Generations Project, prepared by Robert S. Wakefield and published in 1992, covers the descendants of Peter Brown [Robert S. Wakefield, Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Volume Seven, Peter Brown (Plymouth 1992)].

From, "Plymouth Colony, Its History and People, 1620-1691," by Eugene Stratton:

"COOKE, JOSIAH--Though not taxed in 1633, Josiah Cooke's name is on the 1634 Tax List. On 24 March 1633/34 he and Edward Doty were fined six shillings eight pence each for breaking the peace, and since Doty drew blood from Cooke, Doty was to pay him three shillings four pence for it. He married widow Elizabeth Deance 16 September 1635. He became a Freeman on 3 January 1636. Bowman, in MD 3:97 footnote, shows that he could not, as some hae claimed, have been a son of 1620 Mayflower passenger Francis Cooke, for no court would have allowed a son to sit on the jury in a case where his father was plaintiff, nor would a court have allowed the agreement signed by Francis cooke's children if one of them had not signed, and Josiah was alive then, but not a signer. John Insley coddington, "The Widow Mary Ring of Plymouth, Mass., and Her Children," shows that he was among those moving to Nauset (Eastham) ca. 1645. He had been a grandjuror, surveyor, and constable, and he became a deputy f rom Eastham starting 1647. In his will dated 22 September 1673 and proved 29 October 1673, he called himself aged about sixty-three years, and he named his wife Elizabeth, his son Josias, his sons (-in-law) Joseph Harding and William Twining, daughter Bethiah Harding, grandson Joseph Harding, grandson Amaziah Harding, granddaughter Anne Snow, grandchild Stephen Twining, (step)daughter MeTiam Deane, and grandsons Josiah and Richard Cooke. William Twining had married his stepdaughter Elizabeth Deane. His daughter Anna Cooke had married Mark Sonw, son of Nicholas and Constance (Hopkins) Snow; his son Josiah had married Deborah Hopkins, daughter of Gyles Hopkins; his daughter Bethia had married Joseph Harding, ward and presumed nephew of John Doane; and he may have had other children."

At court 3 June 1662, liberty was granted that "ancient freemen" and servants could look for lands in other places if the Saconett Neck lands could not be acquired. Josias Cooke was credited as both an "ancient freeman" and as a servant.

On 25 October 1665 "Pompino and Simon my son" sold to "Josias Cooke of Eastham .... a parcel of upland commonly called Weequasett containing sixscore acres" and six acres of meadow adjoining.

3. JOSIAH, b. say 1643; m. Eastham 27 July 1668 Deborah Hopkins.

ASSOCIATIONS: Josias cooke has, not unsurprisingly, been claimed as a son of FRANCIS COOKE. George Ernest Bowman demonstrated that this could not be true.

COMMENTS: On 24 March 1633/4 Josias Cooke was fined 6s. 8d. for an altercation with Edward Doty in which Doty "drew blood from the said Josias. On 12 March 1638 "Josias Cooke" was bondsman for William Hiller of Plymouth. On 4 February 1638/9 "Josias Cooke" sued John Combes, gentleman, for 4lbs debt and won a judegment of 3lbs. He was presented with other Eastham surveyors of highways for not mending the roads in a number of places at court 1 December 1640. Joseph Hollway sued Josias Cooke at court 6 June 1643. At court 7 October 1651 "Josiah Cook of Eastham" sued John Smith, Sr., of Plymouth for slander and Smith confessed that he had "much wronged the plaintiff by his unbridled tongue in these base and false charges he had charged him withall, by a letter, and otherwise." Josias cooke delivered the letter of William "Nicarson" complaining about defamation by several Indians at court 6 July 1669. At court 1 November 1679, William "Nicarson" Sr. of "Mannamoyett" unsuccessfully sued "Josiah Cooke Sr. of Eastham" for taking a pair of andirons and one silver dram cup, saying that "said Cooke did under color of his office, for he said he was constable of Eastham, and showed him....his black staf; and his demand was 6s. 7 1/2d., which was the first part of the rate he demanded."

From, "The Compendium of American Genealogy," Vol. VI, by Virkus:

"COOK, Josiah (ca. 1610-1673), from Eng., was at Plymouth, Mass., 1633/34; original propr., Eastham, Mass.; constable, 1646; dep. 1647; grand juror, 1656; m. 1635, Elizabeth (Ring) Deane."

The Founding of Eastham

"Perhaps a more serious attempt to move Plymouth about in 1644, when because of the :straightnes and barrenness of [Plymouth] and their finding of better accommodations elsewhere, more suitable to their ends and minds; and sundrie others still upon every occasion desiring their dismissions, the church begane seriously to thinke wheter it were not better jointly to remove to some other place." After many meetings, the Plymouth people gave their attention to moving to Nauset on Cape Cod, one of the three areas reserved to the Purchasers, who were in agreement for the move. There then occurred a change of heart, for "now they begane to see their errour, that they had given away already the best and most commodious places to others, and now wanted them selves." Nauset was too small and too remote, so Plymouth remained as it was. Still this was the occasion for the establishment of yet another new town, and an undated list probably made in the 1640s shows that the freemen there were Thomas Prence, John Doane, Edward Bangs, Nicholas Snow, John Jenkins, Josiah Cooke, Samuel Hicks, John Smalley, Joseph Rogers and Richard Higginson. On 3 March 1644/45 the General Court granted to the Plymouth Church "or those that goe to dwell at Nosett" all the land between sea and sea "from the Purchasors bounds at Naumskeckett to the Hering Brooke at Billingsgate." The court on 2 June 1646 ordered that "Nawsett" be made a township, and Samuel Hicks was appointed as constable. On 7June 1651 the court ordered the name of the town of Nauset to be changed to Eastham."

Children of Thomas Fish are:

192. Wilhelm Holtzclau86, born Abt. 1573 in Wiedenau, Germany; died Abt. 1630 in Wiedenau, Germany. He was the son of 384. Franz Holtzclau. He married 193. Daughter Flender.

193. Daughter Flender86, born Abt. 1580. She was the daughter of 386. Henchen Flender.

Notes for Wilhelm Holtzclau:

"Wilhelm Holtzklau of Weidenau, son of Franz Holtzkla, was probably born ca. 1573/4 and died around 1630, when the plague was raging in Nassau-Siegen. As mentioned previously, his wife (first name unknown) seems to have been a daughter of Henchen Flender of the Hardt. In the special tax of 1619/20 he was the only Holtzklau at Weidenau and paid a tax of 2 Gulden. The Treasury Accounts show that he paid a defense tax of 3 Albus at Weidenau in 1624, 1626, 1628 and 1629. These records show that he was occupying only half a house in the village and that he was over 50 years of age, so born prior to 1574. Johannes Holtzclau appears for the first time along with Wilhem in 1628 and 1629, but as a menber of the militia, indicating that he had just reached the age of 18 and become subject to military duty in 1627 or 1628, so that he was born ca. 1609/10. As in the case of his father, Franz Holtzklau, it is interesting to speculate whether Wilhelm was teacher at Weidenau, like his son, Johannes. If so, he lost his position in 1626. In tha year, during the dominance of the Catholics in the Thirty Years War, the Catholic Count John the Younger seized the whole of Nassau-Siegen, brought in the Jesuits to enforce Catholicism among his sujbects, and issued an edict ousting all Protestant pastors and teachers from the churches and shools. Following this edict, a man named Johann Wiedemann became the Catholic teacher at Weidenau. We are not told the name of his Protestant predecessor, but he was rather probably Wilehlm Holtzklau, for in the year 1631, at the birth of his first child, the records show that Wilhelm's son, Johannes Holtzclaw, was the Weidenau teacher. The presence of a Protestant schoolmaster in Weidenau in 1631 is somewhat remarkable, as it was not until 1632 that the troops of Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden occupied Nassau-Siegen, and Protestantism was restored for a few years in the country. Probably the explanation is to be found in the temper of the inhabitants of Weidenau, which was staunchly Protestant. On many later occasions, when the Catholic sonts tried to foist Catholic schoolmasters on them, the people of Weidenau village and the surrounding ironworks settlements simply refused to pay them so that very few Catholic teachers lasted more that a year or two. This may have been the fate of the Catholic Johann Weidemann, who was soon replaced by Johannes Holtzklau."

Notes for Henrich Flender Muess:

"Henrich Flender Muess of Schneppenkauten, son of Johann Flender, was born about 1555 and died at Schneppenkauten 1632-37. His wife's name is unknown, though the name Hebel was, as mentioned, very popular both in his own family, and that of his cousin, Johann Flender, the associate justice. The Flender genealogy states that Henrich Flender Muess possessed to an aggravated degree faults that were very current among most of the iron-works people. From 1596 to 1599 the Guild fined him several times for overproduction of iron in violation of the relugations,and in 1598 for bringing charcoal illegally to Schneppenkauten. In 1594 he was fined for letting his sheep pasture in the Engsbach Hauberg. In 1594 he was owed a debt of 100 gulden by Hans Sprenger of Eiserfeld, but a few years later owed a debt to a Siegen iron-merchant which probably exceeded the value of his property. He was admonished by the Siegen Presbytery in 1595 for not sending his children to church, and in 1597 for not sending them to school. At the same time his wife was censured by the Presbytery for profanity, and as late as 1620, he himself was censured for addiction to drink. In 1631 and 1632 Henrich Flender owned 1/8 of the Schneppenkauten Hammer, and his two sons, Thomas and Hermann, (and in 1632 his probable son-in-law, Johannes Holzklau), owned together 1/4 of the Hammer."

Notes for Patrick Hume:

Sir Patrick Hume

1641 - 1724

Statesman and covenanter. Imprisoned for his Presbyterian and covenanting principles, he came close to death when accused of helping his friend Robert Baillie (c.1634 - 1684) and had to be hidden in the Polwarth Church by his daughter Lady Grisel Baillie before he managed to escape to the Netherlands (1686). There he was an advisor to William of Orange and he later became Lord Chancellor of Scotland (1696) under William and Mary. He was created Lord Polworth (1690) and the Earl of Marchmont (1697).

Lady Grisel Baillie

1665 - 1746

Lady Grisel Baillie

©1995-2003 Gazetteer for Scotland

Song-writer and heroine. Born at Redbraes Castle (Scottish Borders). She concealed her covenanting father, Sir Patrick Hume (1641 - 1724), in the church vaults in the Border town of Polwarth (1684) and also supported another covenanter, Robert Baillie of Jerviswood (c.1634 - 1684), whose son George she later married. She is noted for the song And werena my heart licht I wad dee. Her household notebook was published as The Household Book of Lady Grisell Baillie (edited by R. Scott-Moncrieff, Edinburgh, 1911) and gave a remarkable insight into household management in the 18th C.

Lady Grisel Baillie was the first deaconess of the Church of Scotland and the Deaconess Hospital in Edinburgh, now the headquarters of Lothian Health, commemorates this fact.

Notes for John Harding:

From the Abner Clark Harding Book: "John Harding of Horthampton,

England whose will was dated in 1636, in which was granted certain real and

personal property to his brother William and to his sons Richard, Amos,

John, Lemuel and Oliver. This will was filed March 3, 1637 and contains a

notation that the testator died January 14, 1637. (this would explain why

Joseph was not included in his father's will) The will mentions that the

testator was then in his 70th year, thus fixing the date of his birth as

1567. He was undoubtedly a husbandman and a direct descendant of Fitz

Harding. It also appears that he was an elder brother of William Harding,

the father of Mary, afterwards Lady Gorges."

ASSOCIATIONS: Twice inthe 1630s John Doane acted jointly with John Atwood of London. On 8 April 1633, as agent of Mr. John Atwood of London, John Doane sold to Henry Howland the remaining time of Walter Harris. Doane and Atwood had held a piece of land as partners, but on 30 December 1636, probably not long after he had arrived in New England, Atwood bought out Doane. They do not seem to have interacted after that date.

The widow Martha Harding may have been John Doane's sister.

COMMENTS: On 28 October 1633 "John Done" presented the inventory of Martha Harding , and on 11 November 1635, with Stephen Hopkins, the inventory of Godbert Godbertson and Sarah his wife.

On 11 November 1633 Mary Brown, daughter of PETER BROWN, deceased, was placed with "Mr. John Done" for nine years. On 10 October 1644, when Mary Brown had reached seventeen, her portion, which had been in Doane's hands, was ordered given to John Browne of Duxbury.

On 7 June 1636 "John Done, yeoman, entereth an account of slander, & layeth it in an 100lbs, against Helin Billington, widow; the defendant was fined 5lbs and ordered "to be set in the stocks & be whipped".

A "John Done," sixteen years old, sailed from London for New England on the "True Love" in 1635, and Pope thinks this is the son of the immigrant, but 1635 is very close to the year of birth of the son of the immigrant, so the 1635 passenger must be someone else."

The Founding of Eastham

"Perhaps a more serious attempt to move Plymouth about in 1644, when because of the :straightnes and barrenness of [Plymouth] and their finding of better accommodations elsewhere, more suitable to their ends and minds; and sundrie others still upon every occasion desiring their dismissions, the church begane seriously to thinke wheter it were not better jointly to remove to some other place." After many meetings, the Plymouth people gave their attention to moving to Nauset on Cape Cod, one of the three areas reserved to the Purchasers, who were in agreement for the move. There then occurred a change of heart, for "now they begane to see their errour, that they had given away already the best and most commodious places to others, and now wanted them selves." Nauset was too small and too remote, so Plymouth remained as it was. Still this was the occasion for the establishment of yet another new town, and an undated list probably made in the 1640s shows that the freemen there were Thomas Prence, John Doane, Edward Bangs, Nicholas Snow, John Jenkins, Josiah Cooke, Samuel Hicks, John Smalley, Joseph Rogers and Richard Higginson. On 3 March 1644/45 the General Court granted to the Plymouth Church "or those that goe to dwell at Nosett" all the land between sea and sea "from the Purchasors bounds at Naumskeckett to the Hering Brooke at Billingsgate." The court on 2 June 1646 ordered that "Nawsett" be made a township, and Samuel Hicks was appointed as constable. On 7June 1651 the court ordered the name of the town of Nauset to be changed to Eastham."

The inventory of the goods of "Mary Ring deceased" was "presented with the will of the said Mary by Thomas Prence whom Samuell fuller requested to perform his charge & trust committed in behalf of the said Andrew & the said Thomas acknowledgeth to accept in public court the overseers of the will being both deceased & the child young"; the inventory was untotalled and included no real estate.

BIRTH: By about 1589 based on estimated date of marriage.

DEATH: Plymouth 15 or 19 July 1631 (preamble to her will).

CHILDREN:

1. ELIZABETH, b. say 1609; m. (1) say 1629 STEPHEN DEANE; m. (2) Plymouth 16 September 135 JOSIAS COOKE.

2. SUSANNA, b. say 1611; m. by July 1631 THOMAS CLARK.

3. ANDREW, b. about 1618 (d. 22 February 1692/3 in his 75th year; m. (1) Plymouth 23 April 1646 Deborah Hopkins, daughter of STEPHEN HOPKINS; m (2) about 1674 Lettice (_____) Morton, widow of John Morton (son of GEORGE MORTON).

COMMENTS: John Insley Coddington discussed this family at length in 1966. He found two petentially relevant entries in the Ufford, Suffolk, parish regiser: the marriage on 21 May 1601 of "Marie Durante of Uffords single woman" to Wylliam Ringe of Petistrey, singleman, and the baptism on 23 February 1602/3 of Elizabeth, their daughter. Coddington stressed the unproven nature of the connection between the Ufford family and the Rings of Leiden. While the marriage date for Marie Durante and Wylliam Ringe is comfortable, daughter Elizabeth seems to have been as much as ten years older than usual at marriage and would have been nearly a decade older than her second husband. If the Ufford family is the one that came to New England, it is possible that the 1602/3 baptism is for a daughter Elizabeth who died young and the wife of Deane and Cooke is a subsequent daughter of the same name."

384. Franz Holtzclau91, born Abt. 1545 in Wiedenau, Germany92; died Aft. 1595 in Wiedenau, Germany. He was the son of 768. Johann Holtzclau and 769. Ahl of Klafeld.

Notes for Franz Holtzclau:

"He is mentioned in the records only twice. In the special tax of 1538, he is mentioned as No. 6 in the list of tax-payers at Weidenau, between Hans Chun and Johann Hung, and paid a relatively small tax of 6 Albus. The 1583 tax-list seems to follow fairly closely the lists of houses andowners shown in 1563, 1566, 1567 and 1572. If we can trust this order, Franz Holtzcklau, who appears for the first time in 1583, was living in the house next to Heintze Kun (father of Hans Chun), which was occupied 1563-72 by Hermann Huettenhen, described in 1566 as "a worn out, frail man and much in debt," who seems to have been the son of a Huettenhen mentioned at Weidenau as early as 1523. It is possible, therefore, that Franz Holtzklau had married a daughter of this Hermann Huettenhen, though, of course, this very speculative.

The second mention of Franz Holzklau was in 1595, when he was one of the three "elders" or assistant administrative officers of the township of Weidenau. He appears in 1595 in connection with the rebuilding of the chapel at Weidenau, which also served as a school, and again we may speculate that he may have been the teacher, as his grandson, Johannes, his great-grandson Hans Henrich, and his great-great-grandson Jacob Holtzclaw, were all teachers. Universal common school education was first established in Nassau-Siegen in 1582, and Franz Holzklau may have been the first official schoolmaster at Weidenau under this act. There is no further mention of Franz Holtzklau after 1595, and he was certainly dead before 1619, when only his son, Wilhelm, appears in the village. "

Notes for Johann Holtzclau:

"The origin of the family is from the very ancient parish of Holtzklau, first mentioned in 1089, with a parish church dating back to the 13th century in the central village of Oberholzklau, and a number of other villages in the parish, including Niederholzklau. There is a brook called the Klav (an ancient name for a gully or ravine) which runs through the parish, so that the name means "the woods of the Klav." The brook later changes its name to the Ferndord, runs through Klafeld (the field of the Klav), and joins the river Sieg at Weidenau. Holzklau has always been an almost exclusively agricultural parish. The case is different with Weidenau, and to some extent Klafeld. Weidenau was situated at the confluence of the Sieg and the Ferndorf, and due to the abundance of water power was a center of the iron industry from the 15th century and probably even earlier. Besides the old farming village of Weidenau, when our ancestors lived there, the township (Gemeinde) contained seven iron-works settlements as well: Hardt, Muenkershuetten, Muesenershutten, Meinhardt, Schneppenkauten, Fiskenhuetten and Buschgotthardshuetten. Through the marriages in the third and fourth gneerations of the pedigree given above, the Holzklaus of Weidenau became connected with the ironworks people there, particularly in the family of Johannes Holzklau of Weidenau, Jacob Holtzclaw's grandfather."

Gerhard was probably a Siegen citizen, for Hilla was member there of both the Miners Guild and the Steelsmiths Suild, memberships which she would only have inherited from her husband.

From, Ancestry and Descendants of the Nassau Siegen Immigrants to Virginia 1714-1750:

Pg. 239 

"Tillmann Muenker was one of the wealthiest iron-masters of his day. By about 1530 he had bought out the other heirs and was sole owner of the Hammer which later bore his name. In 1512 he made a gift of iron for the repair of St. Martin's church in Siegen, and sold large amounts of iron to the Count. In addition to the Muenkershuetten iron-works, he also owned land in Weidenau and Eisborn, and houses in both Siegen and Krombach. In 1535 he was an associate justice of the Court of the Hain (Siegen District Court), but was dead by 1538."

3177. Katherina 

Notes for Cone Conrad Busch:

"Cone (i.e., Conrad) Busch was the owner of the Hammer at the Haardt in the Weidenau Township in 1444. He was probably a son of a Busch who was part owner of the Haardt iron-works in 1417. The Haardt included both a smelter and a hammer, and in 1417 was jointly owned by Busch and his presumed sister, Else Sel, a widow, both probably children of the founder of the iron-works about 1375. Cone Busch died before 1555, in which year his widow, Katherina, and his three sons, Gotthard, Hen and Siebel Busch are mentioned. The three sons moved from the Haardt to operate the Hammer later known as Buschhuetten in the Bottenbach township just north of Weidenau. This had been founded in 1452 by the nobel family of van Wischel, which had roots in the Netherlands and was connected with Flanders. It seems probable that the chief home at Buschhuetten, in which the Busch brothers lived, became known from the van Wischel family as the "Flanders" or "Flender" house, and that Busch sons born in the house later adopted or were called by the surname Flender. Jacob Holtzclaw was descended from the two older sons of Cone Busch, Gotthard and Hen Busch."

550-year Company History - A Brief Summary

550-years of Achenbach Buschhütten - "Fools" or "Hidden Champions" ?

G. Barten, Kreuztal/Germany 

In reviewing such a company anniversary, it is interesting to look at the crucial strategy decisions taken during Achenbach's long company history. A stocktaking of our status in the 2002 anniversary year completes the picture and serves as a starting point for extrapolating future prospects.  

First founded as a local hammer mill "Busch's Hütte" in 1452, and later organised as a co-operative, Achenbach today presents itself an internationally active industrial plant construction company, building top quality rolling mills for the production of strips and foils from metals as aluminium, copper, zinc and their respective alloys. It also builds process engineering systems for the entire oil management in rolling mills and for environment protection.  

From the organisational point of view, Achenbach is a traditional, medium-sized enterprise 100 percent family owned. Considering the current consolidation and concentration tendencies of both suppliers and customers, one might ask the question what exactly represents Achenbach Buschhütten in a market characterised by cut-throat competition - a "fool" or rather a "hidden champion"?  

According to Hermann Simon, "hidden champions" are companies which, compared with the well-known success stories of big businesses appearing in the financial press, tend to flourish behind a veil of low-profile discretion. These "hidden champions" or secret winners are

small and medium-sized businesses,  

often control their niche of the world market with a share of over 50%,

have products which are frequently "invisible",

prove to have remarkable survivability,

have a sizeable share in exports and make a substantial contribution to the balance of payments of a country,

are genuine global competitors,

are predominantly family firms, and

are successful - without being "wonder" enterprises.

The word "fool " is used here to refer to a company which, like a relic from the past has failed to keep up with the times, for example as type of corporation. On the one hand the present observable processes of concentration can be interpreted as a sign of market-cleaning, on the other hand it stands to reason that businesses should be combined to become "full-liners" or - in the process of globalisation - that not only products should be marketed internationally - as it has been custom in the systems' supply business for long - but that, in addition, the purchasing, and to some extent the design and manufacturing of components should function also on a worldwide basis.

Advantages of the medium-sized systems supplier ... 

Strategic decisions over the centuries ... 

Situation in the jubilee year 2002 ...

Vision of the "Hidden Champion" ... 

... Within this context, one may cite the following impressive quotation from the historian Paul Kennedy referring to states and countries, but which can also be applied to the long history of a business. He puts the " paradigm of feasibility" - the seemingly foreseeable mechanism of cause and effect - into perspective and replaces it with a more evolution-oriented view: 

They (the businesses) ..." travel on the path of time which they neither create nor determine, but which they can navigate more or less skilfully and intelligently. 

With the vision of the "hidden champion" in its head and in its heart, the medium-sized company of Achenbach will continue selling rolling mill systems all over the world and cultivating its traditional trade name with its long-term brand of reliability.

"A daughter and apparently his sole heiress, who m. Henchen, son of Johann Zeyne of Klafeld, called both Henchen vor der Hardt and Hennichen Zeyne. Johann Zeyne probably came from the county of Sayn, just S.W. of Nassau-Siegen. In 1467 it is stated that Johann Zeyne of Klafeld had "tapped 7 Ame of beer" ( an "Am" was a measure of which the capacity is unknown). He was part owner of some ironworks, and seems identical with a "Seyne" (no first name given), who lived at Klafeld 1461-71."

GILBERT DE CLARE

"An account of the ancestry of this Baron is given in the sketch of his father, Richard de Clare. He was granted some Welsh lordships in 1210-11 by King John, and fortified the castle of Buelth, in Wales, but shortly afterwards, with his father, took up arms with the Barons against the king in the interests of civil and religious liberty, and was elected one of the celebrated Sureties for the Magna Charta, and was excommunicated. He was one of the Barons still opposing the arbitrary proceedings of the crown, who championed Louis, the Dauphin, fought at Lincoln under the baronial banner, and was taken prisoner by the Earl of Pembroke, the Protector of England, and sent to Gloucester, but soon afterwards, made his peace and married one of the five daughters, and coheiresses of her five brothers, of the Protector. After the decease of his father, in 1218, he became the fifth Earl of Hertford, and after the decease, in 1219, of Geoffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex, the second husband of Isabel, the divorced wife of King John, sister of his mother, Lady Amica, daughters and coheiresses of William, Earl of Gloucester, he became, in right of his aunt and his mother, Earl of Gloucester.

He m. Isabel Marshall, one of the daughters and eventually coheiresses of William, Earl of Pembroke, Protector of England, by his first wife, Isabel de Clare, and dying in 1229, 14 Henry III., at Penros, in Brittany, was buried in the choir of Tewkesbury Abbey, having issue by Lady Isabel, who after his decease m. Richard, Earl of Cornwall, brother of King Henry III.:

RICHARD DE CLARE, Earl of Hertford and Gloucester. He was in his minority at the death of his father, and his wardship was granted to the celebrated Hubert de Burgh, Earl of Kent, Justiciary of England, whose daughter Margaret, to the great displeasure of King Henry III., he afterwards clandestinely married, but from whom he was probably divorced, as the king married him the next year to Maud, daughter of John de Lacie, Earl of Lincoln, in consideration where of the Earl of Lincoln paid to the crown five thousand marks and remitted a debt of two thousand more. This Richard de Clare was a very distinguished personage in the reign of Henry III., and was one of the noblemen present in Westminster Hall, 40 Henry III., when Boniface, Archbishop of Canterbury, pronounced a solemn curse from the altar against all those who should thenceforth violate the Magna Charta.

Notes for Earl of Mar Duncan:

From Burke's Peerage and Baronetage, Pg. 1596:

Lineage---The origin of the Earls of Mar is described by Lord Halles as "lost in its antiquity." According to the most eminent of Scottish Peerage lawyers, Mr. John Riddell, "the Earldom of Mar is the oldest Scottish earldom by descent, as it is in many respects the most remarkable in the empire, for the direct heir-at-law is the representative, through an illustrious ancestry of personages who were Earls of Mar ab initio. The Earldom of Mar may be justly considered the premier earldom of Scotland."

RICHARD DE CLARE, fourth Earl of Hertford and sixth Earl of Clare. In 7 Richard I, he gave a thousand marks to the king for livery of the lands of his mother's inheritance, with his proportion of those some time belonging to Giffard, Earl of Buckingham. His name appears in the covenant made between King John and and the Barons, and as he did not die until "the 3rd of the Calnds of December in the yeare after Christ 1218,"--December 30, 1218,--and there being no other prominent man of his name, it is very likely that he was the Surety named. He was buried either at Clare, or in the middle of the choir of the priory of Tunbridge, which he founded. He had issue by his wife Amicia, sister of King John's divorced wife, and second daughter and coheiress of William, second Earl of Gloucester, d.s.p.m. 1183 (by his wife Mabel, daugher of Robert-bossu de Bellomont, or Beaumont, second Earl of Leicester, d. 1167, a stanch adherent of Henry I. and of the interests of Henry II., upon whose accession to the throne he was constituted Justiciary of England), son of Robert the consul, Earl of Mellent, who was created, in 1109, Earl of Gloucester, a natural son of King Henry I. by Elizabeth de Bellomont, daughter of Robert, Earl of Mellent, created, in 1103, Earl of Leicester, and his wife Isabel (or Elizabeth) de Vermandois, daughter of Hugh Magnus, a son of HENRY I., KING OF FRANCE.

In 3 Henry II, he obtained permission from the king to own all lands in Wales which he could win, marched into Caerdigan, and captured and fortified the castles there. Six years afterwards he was summoned by the celebrated Thomas a` Becket, to Westminister, in order to do homage to this prelate for his castle of Tonebruge, which had been restored to his father, but, at the command of King Hnery, he refused, alleging that, holding it by military service, it belonged rather to the crown than to the church.
