Another son of Carlo, Stanislao, did not take wife, but lived separately and in continuous litigation with his hrother, Luigi, and latter's sons, the litigations involving distribution and legal rights in the patrimony and in the familly chapels; and as a result of said litigations the said Stanislao suffered many setbacks financially, thus being compelled to sell all his property to one Alfonso Ligrone, reserving to himself a life interest; but because of his advanced age (he was born in 1816 and was still living in 1905) he never derived the full measure of his rights and benefits as called for in the sale agreement, and not being able to enforce performance of said agreement died in poverty.

Emery of Asylum Twp by Ulyses Moody and wife Mary Ann on 5 Nov 1859. (Bk 8,
p.87) Sarah appears on the Census of 1860 in Asylum Twp, not having remarried
at that time. Five children are still at home, George, who worked as a day
laborer, Francis, Adelia, Adell, and Elizabeth. Daughter Sarah was working as
a seamstress in the household of Joshua Thompson, the Methodist Minister. A
sale from Sarah Ann Emery to Elnathan Johnson of Asylum Twp land is recorded

LEVI G. ARNOUT, farmer, P.O. Libiberty Corners, was born March 6, 1832, in Monroe township, of this county, and is a son of Peter and Mary (Irvine) Arnout, natives of Northumberland county, who came to this county when they were young, and were of the pioneer settlers of Monroe township. The Arnouts are of Dutch extraction, and the Irvines of Scotch-Irish. The father, who was a wagon-maker, steeled in the forest and improved the place on which his son Levi resides, who was then but two years old. Levi G. Arnout was educated in the schools of his town, and attended the old academy at Towanda, afterward teaching school. He was married March 15, 1855 to Mary J. Emery, who was born December 10, 1831, the second in the family of twelve children of Jacob R. and S Sarah Ann (Ennis) Emery. To Mr. And Mrs. Arnout have been born four children, as follows: Julia M., born November 24, 1858, wife of John Elliott; Cora M., born February 7, 1860; Eliza, born September 5, 1864, a teacher, bidding fair for a future literary career (she recently graduated at the Collegiate Institute, Towanda), and Jennie, born March 15, 1871. Mrs. Arnout died October 1, 1890, deeply mourned by her family and a wide circle of friends; she was a faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal church, for nearly forty years. Mr. Arnout is a Democrat, and has been justice of peace several terms, and school director many years. He has carried on an extensive lumbering business in connection with general farming, and at the present time owns a sawmill located on his farm which he successfully operates.

The Battle of Wyoming was fought 3 July 1778 in which a small band of patriotic Americans led by Col. Zebulon Butler and Col. Nathan Denison battled a combined British, Tory and Indian force of three times their number.

Followwing the Battle of Wyoming, 1778 July 3, the dead lay unburied until October 22 when a detail of men under Lt. John JENKINS gave them a common burial on the ground where they fell. In 1833 the mass grave was opened and the bones of 83 men removed and sealed in a vault. In 1860 a sixty-two foot high monument was erected along Route. 11 in Wyoming, Luzerne county, Pa.

A parish burial record exists for "THOMAS STYLLES, carpenter" on 6 (illegible) March, 1614. There is also a burial record for the "Wyddow Styles" on the 20th of March of 1614, which is presumed to be MARIA. Since they both died in the same month its lends weigh to the idea they lived under the same roof and possibly they both died from an infectious disease.

Comparisons of parish records, genealogical records, and the passenger list of the ship Christian by Dr. Henry Reed Stiles in the 1800's led him to conclude there were three Stiles families in Millbrooke, one headed by Richard, one by Thomas, and one by a third man. The baptismal dates for the children of these men overlap, so they may have been brothers.

Nothing is known about THOMAS and MARIA STYLLES beyond the mentions of them in parish records of Millbrooke, England. The fact THOMAS was referred to as "the carpenter" makes sense considering that was the trade followed by at least three of his sons.

The following is summarized from the personal papers of Stiles genealogist Dr. Henry Reed Stiles, who researched the family and visited the parish church to transcribe the records in 1881. He also hired a local genealogist in 1884 to review his work and all available records, which were then authenticated in a letter from the then-rector of St. Micheal's, Rev. Laurence R. Whigham.

Portions of Dr. Stiles' manuscripts, journals, and genealogies were published in his book listed at the bottom under Sources.

The Connecticut Stiles are descended from three of the four sons of THOMAS and MARIA STYLLES - Henry, John, Francis, and Thomas - who immigrated from London, England to Boston, MA in 1634.

They left behind a brother, Christopher, and three sisters, Joan, Elizabeth, and Marie. Married names for the sisters are not known, and no one has yet been able to trace them based on information found online.

THOMAS and MARIA STYLLES lived in Millbrooke, Bedfordshire, England, but whether they were born there is unknown. This town is about 55 miles north of London, south of Bedford, and slightly east of Milton Keynes in a lovely valley. On his visit to research the family in December of 1881, part of Dr. Henry Reed Stiles description of it reads:

"Millbrooke lies in a lovely vale, richly timbered, soft and dreamy in all its lines and curves. The little village street, or road, winds curving along the base of quite a high ascent, upon which stands the old church, dominating the whole landscape. In its few clustered homes - some of comparatively modern date, but mostly of the old stone-and-plastered, straw-thatched construction of bygone days, this street presents a scene of English rural life - exceedingly quaint, novel and interesting to the eye of an American. It needed little, or no, imagination to feel that it looks now, quite as it must have looked - two centuries and half ago - when our ancestor, 'Thomas the carpenter,' and his sons (the future ancestors of generations beyond the sea), dwelt here."

THOMAS and MARIA STYLLES are known to have died in Millbrooke twenty years before their four sons left England. Both have burial records for March of 1614, although neither Henry Reed Stiles in 1881 nor his hired genealogist in 1884 mentions finding their actual graves. The parish records, both those transcribed for Thomas Stiles in 1634 and those requested in correspondence by Dr. Henry Reed Stiles and later verified by him on his visit to Millbrooke, show a Stiles family (with all the right given names) present in the area for only 54 years total, and none by that name in the nearby parish of Ampthill. The exact area of origin of the Stiles family in England is believed to have been Suffolk, but at the very least was in southeast England.
By the time the four sons of THOMAS and MARIA immigrated they had all left Millbrooke and become established with wives and children in London, being carpenters or master carpenters with portable skills. Before they sailed oldest brother Henry sent Thomas back to Millbrooke to get a copy of their baptismal parish records, probably to comply with the law at that time that required passengers to be accounted for as British citizens. A baptismal record was the only record of a birth. Henry kept this letter, which Rev. Ezra Stiles transcribed to his own notes in 1762 after having access to it from one of Henry's brother John's STILES descendants. It lists all the Stiles baptized in Millbrooke parish records at that time, and since Thomas signed with an X and their "loving Friend William Hawkins" added his signature, its probable Hawkins was a minister who wrote out the letter for Thomas, as follows:

Henrie Stiles was baptised the seven and Twentie of November one Thousand five hundred Ninetie Three.
John Stiles was baptised the five & twentie of December One Thousand five hundred Ninetie five.
Christopher Stiles was baptised the eight and Twentie of March One Thousand Six hundred.
Thomas Stiles was baptised the seven day of Februarie One Thousand six hundred and xij.
Marie Stiles was baptised the xii of March One Thousand Five Hundred and Ninetie One.
Joane Stile swas baptised the xiii of Januarie One Thousand Six hundred and four.
Elizabeath Stiles was bapt. the viij and twentie of December One Thousand six hundred and Seven.
"Brother my hearty love remembered unto you all hoping to God you eare in good health as I am at the wrighting hearof, and I would entreat to you to send me Worde the next Return of the Carrier when I shall come up and I am in Worke and I would stay as long as may be and I did ask Goodman Goddie for your Cow but he will not deliver it to me so with my love to you all I rest your loving Brother. (signed) Thomas Stiles [ X ] and your loving Friend William Hawkins
Ffeburarie the xv 1634"
Thomas may have been trying to get his brother Henry to help straighten out the business with "the Cow" before they sailed that year for New England. Sounds like Goodman Goddie hoped to hang onto her until the rightful owner was out of the country for good. Dr. Henry Reed Stiles' copy of these same records written out for Thomas is more complete and shows there were people of the name Stiles present in the parish before 1593:
1581, Rychard Stylles, sonne of Rychard Stylles, was baptized 20th of June
1591, Maria Stylles, daughter of Thomas Stylles, was baptized 7th March
1595, John Stylles, the sonne of Thos. Stylles, was Christianed the 25th day of December
1600, Christopher Stylles, the sonne of Thos. Stylles, was baptized the 28th day of March
1602, Francis Stylles, sonne of Thos. Stylles, was baptized 1st day of August
1604, Joane Stylles, daughter of Thos. Stylles and Maria his Wife, was baptized the 8th day of Januarie
1605, Joane Stylles, wife of Thos. S., was buried 22d of Januarie
1607, Elyzabeth Stylles, dau. of Thos. and Maria his Wyfe, was baptized 28th of December
1612, Thomas Stylles, sonne of Thos. Stylles, was baptized the 7th of February 1614, Wyddow Stylles was buried ye 20th of March."

Ezra Stiles, president of Yale College and an avid researcher in the 1700's of Stiles genealogy.

HINMAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION
Excerpt from Research Report No. 2
14 Dec 1976
THE ARRIVAL OF EDWARD HINMAN IN THE COLONIES
by Barry Elmore Hinman, M.A.

There are only two ultimate sources for all that we know, or that we can know, concerning Sergt. Edward Hinman of Stratford. One, the most reliable and the surest, is the public record. In the case of Sergt. Edward this means, first, the town record of Stratford, Conn., and second the land records of the same town. So far these records have not been systematically searched, so that our knowledge of what is in them comes to us through secondary sources: Royal Hinman, Donald Jacobus, Samuel Orcutt, Benjamin Trumbull. While these men are certainly trustworthy their evidence is second-hand and cannot substitute for the first-hand evidence of the records. For the time being, however, we must be content with it, as it is all that we have.

Our second source of knowledge of Sergt. Edward is Hinman family tradition as recorded by Royal Hinman in his Genealogy of the Puritans. Such family tradition is extremely useful in giving clues about the ancestor, but it can hardly be considered, in itself, as real evidence. Moreover, evan if entirely accurate at the beginning, it can easily be deformed by the passage of time and repetition from generation to generation. As we have the Hinman family tradition concerning Edward Hinman it dates from 1852, two hundred years after his lifetime. It may be completely accurate, or it may be partly accurate, or it may be completely inaccurate. Until it is confirmed or infirmed by the public record there is no way of knowing.

What do we learn from these two sources concerning the origins and arrival in America of our Edward Hinman? From the town record we learn nothing, since the first 10 years of the Stratford record were destroyed by fire. Instead the first reference to our man is in 1653 when his daughter Sarah was christened in Stratford. He was therefore living there then. According to Royal Hinman "About 1651-2, Sergeant Edward had a house-lot in Stratford" (p. 808), but his own reference is to the town record of 1668, so he is making an inference. Donald Jacobus, an extremely distinguished genealogist who worked extensively in the extant records of Fairfield County where Stratford is located, deduced that he was in Stratford by 1652. Where was he before? Where did he come from2 These records seem to be silent.

Family tradition doesn't know either. Royal Hinman begins by saying that Sergeant Edward was "the first of the name in this country, yet the exact time he came to New England is not discovered, or the ship in which he arrived. The name is not found in Massachusetts, as most of the settlers were. The first found of the name in this country was at Stratford, in Connecticut, between 1650 and 1652." (p. 807)

On my last trip to London, 3-13 April 1976, I found a record which gives us exactly what Royal Hinman couldn't find: the name in Massachusetts, the exact time of arrival in New England, and the ship in which he came. Edward Hinman arrived in Boston, Massachusetts, in July 1650, aboard the William and George of London. The evidence for this statement is a part of the public record not of Stratford but of Boston: the notarial records of William Aspinwall from 1644 to 1651, which were published in Boston, 1903.

A photocopy of these records follows. The story is quite easy to follow. The only point to be noted in advance is the dating. Aspinwall follows the republican calendar of the Commonwealth, which uses numbers for the months instead of names. Since the year began at that time in March, it was that month that was one, April two, and so on. July is thus 5, and December 10.

12 (5) 1650 Uppon the 12th day of July Anno Dni 1650. I Wm Asp: Notary & Tabelli public &c at the request of Capt. Barnaby Stanfast Commander of the Wm & George of London, Doe ptest against yeomen Symon Bowyer, Thomas Hunt, Edmund Newton, Edmund Chapman, Wm Johnson, Nathaniel Robertson, Charles say, Richard Webber, John Potter, John Bennet, & Edward Hinman for absenting from his shipp, for lying ashore, for neglecting the duty of your places and damages which he & his principals & owners Mr Michael Davison, Mr Henry Day, Mr Richard Nettmaker Mr Thomas &c shall or may suffer thereby, & by your psentations of him one count after another whereby his voyage is hindered and like to be overthrown for all and so on and so on. Capt. Stanfast asks that the men be held liable for any of his losses. [This language is very hard to scan in and translate, so I will hereafter summarize each entry in American English so that you can get the story.]
15 Jul 1650. On this day the 13 seamen appeared before the Notary and protested "against Capt. Barn. Stanfast and against any voyage pretended or intended by him in the William & George except the Port of London, and also against that port except the ship be sufficiently manned and victualled and under another Commander and all this by reason of their bad usage and his breach of Covenant." The Notary duly entered the protest in his books.
15 Jul 1650. On the same day filed his answer with Notary Aspinwall. He said he is determined to victual his ship before he leaves port, and she would be sufficiently manned if the 13 men hadn't abandoned the ship. He says he intends to go to London but has to stop somewhere first, and that if they can get another Commander, he won't hinder them. He promised to set them ashore in London, but wants the men to deposit 3,000 pounds security. This answer was read aloud to the men by Aspinwall.
20 Jul 1650. Simon Boyer appears before the Notary and said he was representing the other twelve men and this is their answer. We don't have the power to appoint another Commander. And whether he goes to London or not, we don't care. We want to be paid and stay here. And as for depositing 3,000 pounds, the ship is already engaged for our wages, and we have no need to hire a ship, since we're not going anywhere, and so we won't give security.
22 Jul 1650. Capt. Stanfast and the 13 men appeared before the Notary, and Stanfast asked the Notary to publish his reply to the men: First, that the ship shall go for London directly "as wind and wether will permit." Second, if they will nominate another commander, he will invest the new commander with power. He again asked the men to go aboard and get to work, and they refused.
23 Jul 1650. By this time the Court had ordered the Captain to pay the men what he owed them. Aspinwall "attested a Copie of severall Executions in number eleven, granted, 2 to Symon Boyer, 1 to Thomas Yong, 1 to Rich: Webber, 1 to Charles Say, 1 to Edmund Newton, 1 to Edward Henman, 1 to Thomas Hunt, 1 to Nathaniel Robinson, 1 to John Potter, 1 to John Bennet, also the marshalls Deput his attest of the satisfaction of the same, the executions against Capt. Barnabie Stanfast."
21 Dec 1650. Be it known by these presents that I Barnabie Stanfast Commander and master of the ship Wm and George of London of the burden of an hundred and eighty tons or thereabouts now riding at anchor in the harbor of Boston being deserted of my men, for and in consideration of six hundred forty and two pounds fourteen shillings, whereof I do acknowledge myself fully satisfied, have bargained and sold the said ship until Major General Edward Gibbons together with all her masts, sails, sailyards, anchors, cables, ropes, cords, guns, gunpowder, shot, artillery, tackle, munitions, furniture, and apparel, boat, skiffs, and appurtenances according to an inventory made of the same and delivered unto the said Edward Gibbons under my hand, to have and to hold the said ship and , etc., etc., This jerk who demanded 3,000 pounds security from the 13 crewmen, sold the ship for 642 pounds!
Textual notes:
His full name and title is William Aspinwall, Notary and Tabellion public by authority of the General Court of Massachusetts admitted and sworn.

What has been done is that a public protest against the 11 men is now a matter of record.

The Account of England is the system of calling the months by numbers and not by names; thus 5th month here rather then July.

Here the men enter a counterprotest against the captain, and assert that responsibility for any loss or damage is his rather than theirs. They also lay down conditions for agreeing to reboard the ship. Two days after the men's counterprotest the Capt. gives his answers to their conditions, and they are notified to the men by the notary.

Five days after having received the Captain's answers the men reply through their spokesman. Since the Captain will not go to London directly they demand their wages and to be cleared. The Notary informs the Captain of this answer.

The Captain and the men meet in the presence of the notary. The Captain accepts the men's conditions, and names their spokesman master of the ship. He accepts, but the others refuse to go aboard.

These executions are executions of the judgment of the Court mentioned in the previous extract, and therefore orders to the Captain to pay the men what he owes them.

This last extract shows that the men definitely refused to reboard the ship, and so the Capt. was obliged to sell it 7 September 1650, and the act of sale was recorded by the notary 21 December 1650.

COMMENTARY ON THE TEXTS
These texts show that an Edward Henman arrived in Boston harbor on board the William and George of London, presumably in July 1650, and refused to reboard this ship. What convinces me that this Edward Henman is our Edward Hinman?
First of all, the date, July 1650, is perfect. As I have shown above, Edward Hinman was in Stratford by about 1652. So he obviously must have arrived in America before that date. But if he had arrived a long time before that date there should be a trace of him somewhere, and there is not. A date around 1650 is therefore the most logical and is in fact what everyone has always supposed. Second, the spelling of the last name, Henman, far from being an argument against the identity is rather a proof in its favor. In fact, there is solid evidence that the Stratford Hinmans were also known as the Henmans. In Research Report No. 1, evidence was adduced of this spelling in connection with Hannah Henman, Edward Hinman's daughter-in-law, and her son John (p. 2 and footnote 1, p. lO). Orcutt, quoting directly from the Stratford records, mentions a payment in 1671 to "Mr. Henman.” This can only be Edward himself. Finally, the most telling proof of all, in Edward Hinman's own will of 1681, his son Titus is twice referred to as Titus Henman, and he himself is called Edward Henman by the men who make the inventory of his estate in Stratford.

While this evidence is, of course, purely circumstantial, I think it is sufficiently strong to warrant making major efforts to trace our progenitor in its light. For although it answers the question when and where Edward Hinman came to America, it leaves unanswered the question whence he came, and opens new questions about what he did in Boston, and how he got to Stratford from there. What should be, therefore, our principal lines of research now?

In the first place, there is work to be done in the Boston records. Since there was a court judgment it may be possible to find a trace of it. And it may well contain some useful information--if not the origin of our subject, perhaps his age, or perhaps another spelling of the name. Furthermore, if Edward lived in Boston for any length of time, he may have joined a church, or a military company.

Next, of course, there is the ship, the William and George. Research can be done in London to see if any records remain: ship lists, pay lists, anything of that order.

Finally, the spelling Henman would indicate that we should concentrate on that variant of the name in our researches in the English records. My own researches of last weel; have shown the name to be found in London, Rutland and Northhamptonshire, Warwick and Kent.

FAMILY TRADITION AND THE TEXTS
There is a final point to be considered, the bearing of this new information on the family traditions concerning the antecendents of Edward Hinman. Royal Hinman tells us two things about Edward Hinman before he came to Stratford. First, that "Sergeant Edward Hinman had belonged and constituted one of the body-guard of King Charles I., as sergeant-at-arms, and escaped in the days of Oliver Cromwell, the Protector, to save his life from the halter." (p. 807). That Edward Henman arrived in Boston in July 1650 fits in perfectly with this story as far as timing goes. It is, of course, somewhat surprising to find him a sailor, but if he were desperate to leave England it would certainly be an ideal means. Neither is he called Sergeant, but then he would hardly use a military title aboard a ship. So this romantic story of our ancestor's past is preserved.

The second fact that Royal Hinman advances is that "From the Dutch records at Albany it appears that Sergeant Edward had some connection with Captain John Underhill, in offering their military services to Governor Stuyvesant to fight the Indians." (p. 807) This Captain Underhill was, in 1650 and until 1653, Dutch governor of Flushing in Long Island, and it is quite possible that Edward could have gone to Long Island from Boston, and from Long Island come to Connecticut, just across the sound. There is the further fact that two of Edward's children, Patience and Edward, married into the Burroughs family of Long Island. The original connection was perhaps made 1650-1652. In any case, it would be worth while digging into the Long Island records to see.

CONCLUSION
Reliable evidence shows Edward Hinman to have arrived in Boston in July 1650, a crewman aboard the ship William and George. Nothing in this fact contradicts what was previously known about him; on the contrary, it fits in perfectly, and opens new possibilities of research, both in America and in England.
ADDENDUM
Late word from Barry Hinman places Edward Hinman in Boston as early as 19 June 1650. In Records of the Governor and Company of Massachusetts Bay, Vol. III, p. 202, under the date of 19 June 1650, the William and George is said to be "now before Boston" (i.e., standing in the harbor) as Thomas Young serves Barnaby Stanfast with an attachment for his wages.

28 "According to the family historical records, (256) Hendrick II "went along the Old Mine Road (officially the oldest toll road in North America) with Col. Tom Quick" to the Delaware Valley, where he bought land & built a fort, later called the First Forty Fort, or Old Forty Fort. (256) Hendrick came to Minisink about 1732 with his family. The Pennsylvania Archives (2nd series, vo 19, p 763) state that in 1732 Thomas Quick, Hendrick and others presented a petition to puchase some vacant land on (the West) side of the Delaware River (in present Monroe Co., PA, near Stroudsburg) from the Indians who owned it, and were temporarily refused. The two Schoonmaker families that reached the Delaware changed the spelling of their name from Schoonmaker to SHOEMAKER. Many of (256) Hendrick's children settled near Old Smithfield, and their headstones & monuments will be found in that cemetary...
"The descendants of Hendrick, after living for seventy years in Pennsylvania, spread back to New York State (particularly Tioga and Chemung Counties) and across the the Delaware into New Jersey. As the surname was no longer SCHOONMAKER, great care must be taken to distinguish these Shoemaker's from the many other Shoemaker families in these other areas.


-- THE MICHAEL SHOEMAKER BOOK, p.9
"(In 1732) A Mr. William ALLEN bought 10,000 acres of land in the Minisink Region from the heirs of Governor William PENN. He later sold this land to The VanAKENs, SCHOONMAKERs, DECKERs, WESTFALLs, COOLs, and other families that settled there. His failure to pay the Indians for their claims to this property resulted in a long series of hostilities that lasted for several decades."

30 At the trial of Thomas, mentioned above, at New Haven in 1652-53 Edward Wooster of Derby, CN was called "brother" of Thomas. It is believed that Wooster probably married a sister of Thomas: Wooster's first child was named Thomas Wooster (Genealogy of Woosters in America).

* Note: Thomas was in New Haven, CT as early as 23 Mar 1649-50 , when the birth of his son Joseph was recorded in the town books. It has been conjectured that Thomas came to New Haven from Lynn, MA.

See Vol 5, p 1080 of FAMILIES OF ANCIENT NEW HAVEN. While in New Haven, Thomas Langdon was a tavern keeper (Savage), and on 7 Jan 1650-51 was tried and convicted of providing disorderly entertainment. He was accused of singing "filthy, corrupting songs" with his guests, and serving wine, tobacco, and liquor in violation of regulations. Thomas refused to admit his guilt and stated that "one could sing and be merry in Old England and did not see why he couldn't behave the same way in New Haven." Nevertheless, he was fined 20 shillings. (NHTR 65 ff.) On 2 Mar 1651-52 Isabelle, the wife of Thomas, was judged innocent of the charge that she had tried to foster a marriage between an indentured female servant and another colonist (NHTR 1:125). * Note:

In 1654 or 1655 Thomas move to Derby, CT, but did not remain there very long. According to Bunker's "Long Island Genealogies", p 233, Gilbert Opdyke deeded to Alexander Briam "hollows on the run at East Meadow" in Hempstead, L.I., which was to be delivered to Thomas Langdon. The deed was dated 16 Sept, 1655. Sometime during the year 1657 Thomas was definitely a resident of Hempstead where he remained the rest of his short and occasionally turbulent life (NTR 1:18.36) In 1657 Long Island, New York was still a part of New Amsterdam, a Dutch colony. In Hempstead, Thomas pursued the occupations of farmer (HTR 1:34-35) and wolf hunter (p.67, Schultz"s "Colonial Hempstead ") He served as a townsman in 1660 (HTR 1;71).Thomas evidently resided on the south side of the town (HRT 1:88) during 1660 and probably before. In 1662 he purchased a dwelling on "Stickling"s Neck" (HTR:210-11) but soon moved, probably to "Raynor"s Neck" (HTR 1:223). * Note:

When Thomas died in 1663 or 1664, he possibly left no other descendant than his son, Joseph. His wife, Isabella (maiden name unknown) possibly survived him and married as her second husband ___ Osborne, father of William Osborne of Hempstead, Long Island. * Note:

32 JOHN CARMAN, the Puritan Father Ancestor of Plymouth Colony, who in 1631 came in the ship "Lyon"and was of Lynn, where in 1632 he had by wife Florence (daughter of Rev. Robert Fordham) a son John, and in 1634 a daughter Abigail. Next of Wethersfield, colony of Connecticut, and in 1641 one of the original patentees of Stamford, Connecticut, and in 1643, with his father-in-law, the committee who negotiated a purchase of about 20,000 acres of land on Long Island, extending from Long Island Sound to the Atlantic Ocean, of the Rockaway and Merrick tribes of Indians. In 1644 this purchase was confirmed to himself (John Carman) and six other Englishmen. Of these, one was the noted Captain John Seaman, who in 1641 was co-patentee of Stamford.

In 1644 John Carman was one of the five first families that settled on this patent - all but one of the families being of or from Hemel Hempstead, England (county of Hereford), and the settlement was named Hempstead (originally New Hempstead), and the first child born in the infant settlement was Caleb, son of John and Florence Carman.

His son John (II), born in Lynn, 1632, married Hannah, daughter of Captain John Seaman.

His brother Caleb, the first born in Hempstead, married another daughter of Captain John Seaman.

He had John (III), born in Hempstead, 1656-7, who by wife Mary, daughter of Simon and Mary Cooper, had William (IV), born in Jamaica, Long Island, in 1680, who among others had Elijah (V), born in Jamaica, in 1704-5, who by wife Elizabeth Bloodgood, born in Jamaica, 1708, had Elijah (VI), born in Jamaica, about 1749. Removed to Monmouth county, New Jersey, where he married (Marcy or Mary Allen ?), born 1753.

He died 1804, and his wife in 1831.

He and his brothers Nathaniel, Daniel and Thomas served in the historic fighting First Battalion of Monmouth county, taking part in three of the great battles (Monmouth, Princeton, and Trenton) and a score of minor ones, and this Elijah (VI) is the Revolutionary ancestor of Mr. Louis E. Carman, now a resident of Nutley, New Jersey. Elijah Carman (father of Elijah VI), son of William (IV), took part in the colonial war (the French and Indian war), 1758.

34 New York was New Amsterdam until 1674

Researchers in this time period should also familiarize themselves with common Dutch phrases used in Baptismal, Marriage and death records. The serious researcher will also need to be very familiar with Dutch naming systems and patronymics Remarks within square brackets [ ], are Lorine's own notations and research. The names are for the most part, in patronymic form. The actual surname the family may have taken, would not have developed for some years. If known, I have indicated the family name which this individual or his/her descendants eventually took.

Remember that spelling was largely phonetic in this time period - and your ancestor may be found under a variety of names (patronymics) and spellings ..... so... be creative! In these early records the use of "Van" is not usually part of the surname, but is intended as "from" showing the place of origin of the individual.

Understanding these records:

From 27 August 1673 on, the first date is the date the parties registered their intent to marry. The last date is the date of the actual marriage. Example:

"den 3 May. Willem Heyer en Catalyntie Mol den 26 May"
"den 3 May" means Willem and Catalyntie registered on the 3 May of that year. "den 26 May" is the actual marriage date.

dicto means that entry occured in the same month as the preceeding entry (the one above it). If the preceeding entry also uses "dicto", keep reading up until you find a month. Example:

"den 3 May. Willem Heyer en Catalyntie Mol, j.d. Van N. Yorck, den 26 May"
"den 28 dicto. James Spencer en Maria Carlee met een licentie den 28 dicto."
Here we see that James Spencer and Maria Carlee registered their intent to marry on 28 May (as per the entry before theirs)

eodem means the entry occured on the same day as the one preceeding. Example: In the following three entries we see that Andries Holst registered his intent to marry on the same day as Francois de Fenne. Francois' entry uses "den 6 dicto" so we must read up to find the first preceeding entry with a month - and that is Delivery Stantely with the month of Sept. Thus Francois' entry is 6 Sept. as is Andries'.

"den 2 Sept. Delivery Stantely, en Engelje Boeckhout, Getrouwt den 2 Octob."
"den 6 dicto. Francois de Fenne, en Margareta Blanck, Getrouwt den 9 Octob."
"Eodem. Andries Holst, en Cornelia Van Tienhoven Getrouwt den 23 Septemb."

35 NOTE CENSUS ERROR.

Sarah Williamson Clarke, her husband James Clarke and their children were living in her father's household in 1861. It appears her mother was dead at this time, or not living with her husband and it could be for that reason that the census taker misinterpreted the household relationships. James Clarke is thus Thomas Williamson's son-in-law, Sarah his daughter, and the children his granddaughters and grandsons. He also had a 55 year old brother in the household.

36 On January 29, 1756, The Pennsylvania Gazette published extracts of a letter from John Van Etten which adds significant detail and long overdue corrections to later accounts of the time, place, and death of Thomas Quick, Sr. during the French and Indian War:

By a Letter from Mr. John Van Etten, of Upper Smithfield, in Northampton County, there is Advice, that on the 17th Instant*, one Thomas Quick, a Man above 70 Years of Age, was killed, scalped, stripped naked, and most cruelly cut in many Places, by the Indians : That two other Men were killed and scalped at the same Time, belonging to Capt. Weeiner[sic] of the Province of New York, who had come over with said Quick to guard him while he should grind a Quantity of Wheat for some of the Neighbours : That a Saw-Mill, Grist Mill, and very good Dwelling-house, belonging to Quick, were all burnt : That a large Barn, Barracks, and a great Quantity of Wheat, the Property of one Cornelius D[e]witt, together with his Dwelling house, and all his Household Goods, which for some Time had been moved into the Jerseys, and brought back again but the Day before, were all destroyed : That one Solomon Decker, as he was going to said Quick's Mill with a slea [sleigh?] load of Wheat, was fired at by some Indians, but not hurt; however he was obliged to leave his slea, and the Indians coming up to it, took the Bags, threw the Wheat that was in them all over the Ground, but carried the Two Horses, Gears [harness] and Bags with them : And that Mr. Van Etten's own Barn, Barracks, and all his Wheat, are likewise burnt, and three of his best Horses, with Gears, carried off by the Enemy; which gives him Reason to think, by then carrying off Horses and Gears, that they are building a Fort in the Swamp, betwixt where he lives and Susquehanna. He adds, that he is well informed there are a Number of Frenchmen among the Indians.

* The word, Instant (often abbreviated inst.) refers to a recent occurrence in the present or current month.

Next came luxury items such as body ornaments, silver and china, pianos, gigs, and carriages. Finally, almost all personal possessions were included - farm implements, household furniture, livestock, even pots and pans...."

40 * Anneke Jansen, the first ancestor of Mrs. General Dullard, came to New Amsterdam about 1612, at the age of seven teen. At that time the Patroon of Rensselaerswyck
(now a part of Albany) had a young superintendent of the affairs of the "Colonic," named Roeloff Jansen, who was called to New Amsterdam occasionally on business, finally removing thither. On one of his visits during the administration of Van Twiller, he met Anneke, who, not long after,became his wife. They were both members of the Church in New Amsterdam, presided over by Dominie Everardus. Bogardus, the first minister who filled a pulpit in the new Dutch city. He was a faithful, outspoken bachelor of thirty when he came, and baptized the four children of Roeloff and Anneke in regular order. At his death Roeloff left to his young widow, among considerable other property, a small farm running on Broadway, from Warren to Duane Street sixty-
two acres "more or less." The widow had no one to look after her property and assist in training her children, and the dominie had no one to look after his clothes. Mutual
sympathy in their destitution begat affection between the dominie and the widow, and they were married. Then the dame bore the honors of the double name of Anneke Jansen Bogardus. Thenceforth her landed property was known as "the Dominie's Eowerie" or farm. They lived happily together until 1647, when Bogardus was lost at sea on his passage home from Holland in September of that year. He left his widow with four more children. The farm had been granted to Jansen by Van Twiller, and it was confirmed to Anneke by Stuyvesant in 1654. After the death of her husband Mrs. Bogardus went to Albany to live, where she died in 1663. Her will is among the public records there, dated January 29, 1663, by which she left her children and grandchildren all her real estate in equal shares, with a prior charge of one thousand guilders in favor of the children of the first marriage, " out of the proceeds of their father's place, viz., a certain farm on Manhattan Island bounded on the North River." The title to this farm was confirmed to these heirs by Richard Nicolls, the first English governor after New Netherland and New Amsterdam both became New York. This is the property (now worth many millions) concerning which there is so much litigation by Anneke Jansen's heirs. The curious reader will find other interesting particulars in relation to this matter in "Humbert vs. Trinity Church,"
24 Wendell, page 587. Mrs. Waldo M. Potter (the wife of the late long time honored editor of the Saratogian) is also a descendant of Anneke Jansen.

41 - From: "A Genealogy of The Quick Family in America" Author: Arthur Craig Quick Pub: 1942

- "...Our research correspondent in Naarden, finding no record of any others by the name of Quick, quite naturally assumes that among the British garrison there may have been a soldier by the name of Quick--there being families of that name in Scotland--and that this fellow so liked the country and one of its fair maidens that he decided to make Naarden his permanent home, and said maiden his haus vrouw. This man was probably the grandfather or father of our Teunis Thomaszen.
- The father of our Theunis was certainly named Thomas, for it was a general custom in Holland to use the father's given name as the middle name of all his children, male and female, the family name in many instances being omitted entirely, sometimes even lost sight of. This custom also prevailed in America for many generations among many of the Dutch families.

- There being no "Q" in the Dutch alphabet our name for years was variously spelled in church and other records--Kwik, Cuyck, Cuik, Cuick, Kuik, Kuyk, etc., in fact in early records all names were spelled phonetically..."

- FIRST GENERATION
- Theunis Thomaszen Quick and Belijtgen Jacobus beyde jongg, (both single), were married tot Naaren, Holland, 9 Marty (March), 1625.
- Our research in the early records at Naarden shows this marriage.
- Theunis Thomaszen Quick de Matzelaer van Naarden, as he sometimes signed his name, meaning the mason from Naarden, was first heard of in the early records at Nieuw Amsterdam, (New York), when, with his wife, Belitje, they had their daughter Hillegonde baptized in the New Amsterdam Dutch Church 25 November, 1640.
- The van Naarden refers to his home town in Holland. Naarden is located on the south shore of the Zuider Zee, some fifteen miles east of Amsterdam.
- We have the baptismal records of all their children except Jacob, presumably born in Holland.
- Weyntje, the oldest, was baptized a at Naarden den 23 July 1628.

- It is believed that they came to America not long after the birth of Weyntje, though the exact time is not known..."
- SECOND GENERATION

- JACOB THEUNISZEN QUICK de Looper, (the runner), he sometimes signed his name thaat way, though "de Looper" was really a nickname given him. He lived in Albany 1660-1689. He is safely considered as one of the sons of Theunis Thomaszen, since according tothe old Dutch method of naming their children, his middle name Theuniszezen denotes that he was a son of Theunis. This custom of so naming children has been very helpful in identifying members of early Dutch families. Besides, there was no other family of Quicks in America with whom he could have been connected, else our exhaustive research would have disclosed the fact.

- His name appears frequently in Court and Notarial records at Albany in the years 1660 to 1689, indicating that he made Albany his home. Fernow states that in 1674, Jacob had a residence on west side of Broad St., New York, between Wall and Beaver Sts., and was designated as a "baker," showing that he had a bakery business there in addition to his Albany interests.

- Jacob was sometimes referred to as "van Naarden," making it reasonable to believe that he, as well as his older sister Weyntje, was born in Naarden before the parents came to America. Jacob was married in the Dutch Church at New Amsterdam, 24 March 1655 to
- NEELTJE CORNELIS.
- The baptismal records at Albany are missing, so we have no records of the births of their children. However, we know they had at least four:--
- Belitje,
- Cornelis Jacobsen,
- Gerritje and
- Theunis Jacobsen, bap. 1718 to 1737 in New Amsterdam Dutch Church.

- THIRD GENERATION THEUNIS JACOBSEN QUICK, native of Albany, m. 1 Dec 1689 to VROUTJE JANSE HARING in the New Amsterdam Dutch Church.

- She was b. 3 Mar 1663 (or 3 May 1667), the dau. of Jans Petersen Haring of Tappan, NY, who was b. in Holland 26 Dec. 1633, and in 1662 he m. Grietje Cosyn.

- Theunis evidently left Albany and made his home in New York after his marriage, where records of him are found. Vroutje became a member of the New Amsterdam Dutch Church 25 Feb 1685. The meaning of the name Vroutje is "little wife." They had 9 children.
- Theunis was made a "Freeman" 18 Dec. 1695 (NYHS Coll. 1885 p. 59).
- He and his brother Cornelis resided in the North Ward, New York, according to the tax lists for 1695 to 1699, and were the only ones of that name in that section.

- About the same time his household consisted of 1 male, 1 female, 4 children, 1 negress (Valentine's Hist. of N. Y., p. 358). Theunis had interests in NJ also, and several of his sons later settled there on extensive farms.

- He was among the contributors to pay the expenses of a Domine to come from Holland to take charge of the congregation at Three Mile Run, Somerset Co., N. J.

- "Teunis Kwik" joined the N. Y. Dutch Ch. 2 March 1705 (Record 59:263).

- The will of Theunis Jacobsen Quick, "baker," dated 25 April 1739, proved 1 Nov. 1743, names his sons,
- Jacobus,
- Teunis,
- Cornelis,
- Petrus, and
- Abraham,
- and dau. Neeltie, wife of John Furman (or Thurman).
- From the above we infer that among other enterprises he was in the bakery business, perhaps succeeding his father, who was in the same business in May, 1667, as stated in vol. 6:67 of Fernow's "Records of N.A."
- His will also provides that his daughter Neeltie is to receive the house on the east side of Broad St., N. Y., the 5 sons to have the rest of his estate.

- Their Negro woman and child to be sold to the highest bidder among his children--(WNYHS, 3:412).
- The New York Sun of April 9, 1938, records, together with photos, the coming to light of the large silver bowl made for Theunis and Vroutie Quick. "The largest two-handled American Silver Bowl known to date has just been acquired by Robert Ensco, Inc., of New York City. It was made by Cornelius Kierstede, a silversmith of Dutch ancestry, who was baptized in New York in 1675. He served his apprenticeship as a silversmith and became a Freeman in 1698. He moved to New Haven in 1722.
- "This Kierstede bowl is unusual because of its size and its beauty. It is ten inches in diammeter, four and one-half inches high and weighs a bit over twenty-six ounces. It is more than an inch larger than any other known two-handled bowl made by an American silversmith. There are six panels with embossed floral decoration that suggesst the flower motifs used by early Dutch painters. In the bottom of the bowl is a large conventionalized flower of intricate workmanship. While Cornelius Kierstede worked in New York City his silver was highly individual and showed strong traces of continental influence. Unlike many pieces of fine silver, this two-handled bowl bears the initials of the owners, Q over T and V, for Theunis Jacobsen Quick and his good wife, Vroutje Janse Haring Quick.
- They were married in the Dutch Reformed Church in New York City, 1st Dec. 1689. Later they moved to Somerset County, N. J., where Theunis was an honored member of the Dutch Reformed Church in New Brunswick.
- Jan Pietersen Haring, father of Vroutje, who m Theunis Jacobsen Quick, was the leader in a projecct to buy out the Tappan Indian rights in a large tract of land, some 12,000 acres, lying on the west side of the Hudson, partly in N. Y. and partly in N. J. Of the 16 shares in the syndicate Haring took three shares for himself and two sons. The deed to the land was signed by the Tappan Indian chiefs 17 March 1681 (old style, which is 1682 in the modern calendar). The land was paid for in goods of many descriptions.
- Jan died in December 1683. Jan's sons, Peter and Cosyn Haring, each had one share in the syndicate, and on 8 April 1685, when Jan's widow, Grietje Cosyns, married Daniel De Clerk, the third share passed to the widow's new husband.--(Rockland and Orange Counties, vol. 2:36.)

42 -- In 1812 Carlo purchased a palatial home with adjacent country land from the Fancuilli family of Acquavella, who had inherited the same from a priest of the family.
-- killed Antonio Cesare Ventimiglia during the rule of Giuseppe Buonaparte over the kingdom of Naples (about 1807); he was not tried for this crime
-- served as decurion (Podesta?) 1819 to 1825

Carlo became married to one Celeste Langulli from Moro of Civitella, this against the wishes of his father, by reason of which the latter disowned him allocating to said son merely a legitimate allowance. Said Carlo moved to Porcili, where during 1812 he purchased a palatial home with adjacent country land, formerly belonging to the Fancuilli family of Acquavella, who had inherited the same from a priest of the family who had lived ln Stella Cilento.

Carlo rendered himself notorious through his killing of the Baron [signore?] of Stella Antonio Cesare Ventimiglia. The sald incident occurred during the rule of Giuseppe Buonaparte over the kingdom of Naples (about 1807), inasmuch as it is said that as he was about to deliver the fatal shot he exclaimed "Signore, Giuseppe Buonaparte sends you this." Altho this killing occurred in the presence of others, the said Carlo received no punishment from the law, perhaps largely due to the political powers in control at the time, and also perhaps due to the assistance received from the public.

Records reveal that he was decurion [podesta] of the City from 1819 to 1825.

Carlo having died Jan. 2, 1826, left eight children, three boys and five girls as Letizia, married Domiani of Cosentini, Leonilda died in 1827, Pasqualina died in 1837, Bambina born in 1812 died during about 1890 and Clorinda married to Raffaele LaGrega, artist-painter, of Cannicchio, she died after 1900.

46 1. James Adams was born on 2 Jun 1760 in Hardwick, Sussex County, New Jersey, and died on 13 Jan 1838 in Arcadia, Wayne County, New York, at age 77, and was buried in Rhea Cuddeback or West Cemetery, Phelps, New York.

General Notes: In 1775, James Adams was a bound apprentice to Francis Price. He married Ann Dunn, who died, and he then married her sister, Sarah. A James Adams was listed in the township of New Town in 1793. He lived in Walpack Township on fifty-seven acres of land near the farms of the Van Neste and Rosencrans families.

Newton, New Jersey is centrally located in the Kittatinny valley, a broad limestone basin where slate ridges partition the waters of the Paulinskill, Pequest Creek and Wallkill. This old county town rests on the decline of the Great Slate Mountain, overlooking the Big Spring and Paulinskill meadows. A chain of Highlands, extending between the Delaware and Hudson Rivers, forms a barrier to tidewater markets along the valley's southeastern rim. The steep escarpment of Blue Mountains, broken only at Culver's Gap, paint the northwest horizon. The old Easton Road (Route #94) pursues the slope of the ridges along the valley's main axis. It traverses the town along High and Water Streets. The New York Road (Route #206) rises from tidewater at Elizabeth and climbs through narrow gaps in the hills, passing Culver's Gap en route to Milford, Pennsylvania, and ultimately, to the Great Lakes.

In June of 1808, James and Sarah negotiated a mortgage of their Walpack Township property with Robert Bell to be paid in full by 1810. The farm was bound by the farms of the Van Neste and Rosencrans families. Subsequently, they sold the farm in Walpack to Issac Losey in 1812 and traveled to Ontario County, New York. In New York James Adams lived in a part of Ontario County that became Wayne County, not far from present day Fairville, and it was whiel living here that he filed for a pension for his service in the Revolution for the State of New Jersey. They lived not far from Sarah's brother, Samuel, who had migrated to Ontario County about 1801 and settled in what is now thw Town of Phelps.

James appeared on the 1820 Census of Ontario County in the Township of Lyons (which became Arcadia). He was over 45 years of age as was his wife. There was also a female child in the household who was under 9 years. He appeared on the 1830 Census of Wayne County in the Township of Lyons. He was listed as being between 70 and 79 years old. His wife was listed as being between 60 and 69 years old.

James married Ann Dunn , daughter of William Dunn and Esther , in Mar 1782 in Frankford Township, Sussex County, New Jersey. Ann was born about 1760 in Enfield, Hartford County, Connecticut and died before 1787, before age 27.
