GENEALOGY Of East Hampton Families

FILER FAMILY

"Samuel Fyler," then so spelled, was in East-Hampton as early as 1677-8, and from him the line runs down to the present day. Many of this stock have removed from East-Hampton to localities far distant, of whom Zephaniah (brother of Thomas the tailor) removed to Troy, N. Y. nearly or quite one hundred years ago, where his descendants now live. The family has been industrious and aspired to mental culture.
Thomas the tailor had ch. Theron, and Charles of Sag-Harbor, who both left descendants.
THERON had ch. born in this order: Samuel F., Mary H., Thomas A., George E. and Henry C.
CHARLES had ch. born in this order: Nancy L., Charles H., Herbert, Ozem, Emmett, T. Alvah, Ada, Harriet.

THE GARDINER FAMILY

Winthrop's Journal of Boston, under date of Nov. 28, 1635, recites: "Here arrived a small Norsey bark of twenty-five tons, sent by Lords Say, &c. with one Gardiner, expert engineer or work base, and provisions of all sorts, to begin a fort at the mouth of Connecticut. She came through many great tempests, yet, through the Lord's great providence her passengers, twelve men and two women and goods, all safe." This is an entry at the time, of the arrival of Lion Gardiner in Boston in a "Norsey bark," which is the short for "a North Sea Boat." Historically the record is valuable, to show the small size of vessels then navigating the ocean, compared with those of the present day. It clearly shows the designs of the Lords, engaged in founding the Colony of Connecticut, and it establishes the reputation of Lion Gardiner as an "expert engineer," and fixes the date of his coming this side of the Atlantic. With him came from Woerden, a town in Holland, his wife Mary, daughter of Derike Willemson, whose aunt "was the wife of Wonter Leonardson old burgomaster." With him she went to the fort at Saybrook, at the mouth of the Connecticut river, and thence In 1639 to Gardiner's Island, where he established the first English settlement in the state of New-York, and thence in 1653 to East-Hampton.
Curtiss C. Gardiner, Esq., of St. Louis, Missouri, has with great learning and deep research, compiled his discoveries regarding the life and career of Lion Gardiner, from whom he descended, and has gathered a full genealogy of the Gardiner family, which has been published. I compile this sketch of the family largely from his book, and make it the more brief because his record has rescued from oblivion interesting knowledge which was perishable. The character and career of Lion Gardiner as a large hearted, humane, devout, Christian puritan, patriot, warrior and statesman, seeing far in advance of his age, inspired with wider conceptions of the teachings of the Great Master, whose large benevolence, whose tender sympathy, whose chivalrous friendship, whose undaunted courage extorted the admiration and confidence of the savage, are forever inscribed on the enduring pages of history. It has adorned his memory with the garland of immortality.
"The greater proportion of the family traced in this volume, have moved in the middle walks of life. Generally they have been respected citizens. Great honors and large wealth have not been the common heritage. On the whole, the family possesses an honorable record of both character and achievement." Thus Curtiss C. Gardiner, Esq., modestly closes his book entitled "Lion Gardiner and his Descendants." He could in justice to the family claim nothing less, and might fairly have claimed more. The strong sense of justice, the chivalrous regard for honor, the wide, far-seeing view, the generous heart, the adventurous enterprise, the good practical judgment, the patriotic impulse, that characterized the founder of the family in his Island home, very largely were transmitted to his descendants. The voice of detraction has sometimes been aimed at the Col. Abraham Gardiner of Revolutionary days, who was commissioned and acted under orders from British authority, to take from the inhabitants of his own and an adjoining town, the oath of allegiance. But he acted in so serviug, and they acted in so taking the oath, under a compulsion in law and morals, avoiding all contracts and all obligations. As a fact those taking the oath were most devoted patriots, and so deemed and so honored by their fellow countrymen thereafter. I find no reason to believe Col. Gardiner less patriotic than they were, or less so than his own son Nathaniel, the surgeon of the Revolution. The world has condemned Eastern Long Island unjustly, for yielding to compulsion. When the condemning world has suffered, as our forefathers suffered, and exhibited a loftier patriotism, or more devoted iove of country, we will credit the world as it would then merit. Unintentionally, in vindicating the good name of Col. Gardiner, I have stated the ground on which, to impartial minds, his cotemporaries of right should be exhonerated. The memories of my boyhood and the associations of my manhood plead for mention of an old and time honored friend. Samuel B. Gardiner, dec'd, was a schoolmate in Clinton Academy. As a boy I knew him--high souled, sympathetic, social, generous, friendly, by far the most effective declaimer of all his cotemporaries. With majestic presence, with swelling volume of voice, with impressive emphasis, with harmonious action, with graceful attitude, he recited selections from the great masters of poetry and eloquence, of ancient and modern times. His declamation was at once the admiration and despair of his school-mates. In manhood he developed more decidedly the noble qualities promised in his youth. He was the trusted adviser of his townsmen; honored with official position whenever he would consent to accept it; twice elected to represent Suffolk County in the Assembly of the Empire State. Inheriting the activities of his father, and the nobility of nature that signalized his mother, he was one of nature's noblemen. Friend of my youth and maturer years: I can not withold this poor tribute to thy name and memory.

THE HAND FAMILY

Contributed by Clifford A. Hand of New-York City.
JOHN HAND 1 was a native of Kent County, a land owner in the parishes Punbridge and Ashford, in that County. He signed himself "yeoman," and thus was ranged in that sturdy class, which was the true strength of England and which made her power invincible on many famous battle fields. The first distinct trace of him in America was in March, 1644, when he was enrolled in the 3d ward of Southampton, Long Island. He was one of the little company, who soon took up the land adjoining Southampton on the east, and planted there the new settlement, first called by them Maidstone, and now East-Hampton. He was one of the nine original patentees or grantees of East-Hampton. In 1657 he was one of the delegates to Hartford, Connecticut, for the purpose of bringing East-Hampton under that government, and for the further purpose of having goodwife Garlick tried on charges of witchcraft. Her acquital was presumably by consent of the delegates, and probably not really objectionable to their fellow townsmen.
JOHN HAND 1 is understood to have died on or about Jan. 24, 1660. His wid. Alice afterward m. Capt. Codnor. The inventory of his estate included 1 great Bible, 2 small Bibles, 1 Psalm book, 1 fowling piece, 1 carbine, 1 pistol and 2 swords. His ch. appear to have been John 2, Stephen 2, Joseph 2, Shamgar 2, Benjamin 2, Thomas 2, James 2 and Mary 2. Mary 2 m. Charles Barnes, the first principal of, or teacher in, the school at East Hampton. Of the sons above named John 2 rem. from E. Hampton after 1663 and d. before 1687. There is no further trace of him. Joseph 2 another s. in 1662 m. Jane Wright of Guilford, Ct. He settled there and became the ancestor of the New England branch of the family, members of which are scattered through the west, and one of whom, George E. Hand of Detroit, was at one time Judge of the Supreme Court of Mich. Three other sons, Shamgar 2 who m. a Pierson of Southampton, Benjamin 2 who m. Elizabeth Whittier of the same place, and Thomas 2, participated in the settlement of the Cape May region of N. J. Their descendants are still found in N. J. and Penn. or through emigration from these states. Josiah 3 s. of Shamgar 2 d. in Southampton in 1739, leaving a will in which he mentioned his sons David 4, Matthew 4 and Thomas 4, and daus. Mary Mulford 4, Johanna Flint 4 and Sarah 4. Stephen 2 and James 2 were thus the only sons of John 1 who remained in E. Hampton, and who carried forward the family name there.
STEPHEN 2 was named in the Indian deed of E. Hampton in 1660. He d. April 15, 1693, leaving a will dated May 17, 1688 and therein named his w. Rebecca and sons Stephen 3, Joseph 3 and Samuel 3 and 5 daus. Stephen 3 d. Nov. 13, 1740, 79, and leaving ch. Stephen 4, who m. Elizabeth Dollafer Dec. 21, 1745, and d. leaving ch.
JAMES 2 b. about 1651. m. 1st dau. of Nathaniel Bishop (who d. May 2, 1704) and 2d Elizabeth Dibble. He d. Nov. 13, 1733. He was grantee in deed from Thos. Hand in 1679 and 1697. and in 1712 he granted to his s. Nathaniel 3 12 acres at Wainscott. Among his ch. appear to have been James 3, Nathaniel 3, Elias 3 and Esther 3. Elias 3 b. abt. 1700, m. 1st Esther Osborn, she d. April 25, 1727, he m. 2d Experience Miller. His ch. appear to have been Phebe 4, Lemuel 4 and Elias 4, who was Captain of a company in the French war and participated in the attack upon fort Ticonderoga under Gen. Abercrombie, and in the capture of Crown Point under Gen. Amherst.
JAMES 3 m. twice, 1st wife d. June 17, 1727, and he m. 2d Rebecca, dau. of Lieut. John Wheeler; he d. 1761 and left will dated Oct. 19, 1754 and under which Wm.

SAMUEL 4 s. of James 3 d. before Oct. 19, 1754, the date of his father's will, which refers to his deceased s. Samuel's 4 children, not naming them. By tradition his death occurred by drowning, when he was about 40 years of age, and at a place outside of E. Hampton, where he was actively engaged in business. He was bap. with his bro. James 4, Oct. 2, 1709. He is believed to have been the 1st husband of Elizabeth, dau. of Ammi Ruhama Rusco (s. of Nathaniel Rusco and Elizabeth Halsey his w.) Among the issue of this marriage were Nathaniel 5 b. April 7, 1739, Abraham 5 b. abt. 1741, Esther 5 b. May 7, 1743, who m. (???)
Edwards, and Nathan 5 b. May 14, 1747, who is reputed to have been a posthumous son. The wid. Elizabeth was left in straitened circustances by the sudden death of her husband, and is said to have maintained her family by teaching school in the village of E. Hampton, and to have been a woman of energy and intelligence, as well as of piety. She m. for 2d husband David Conklin, by whom she had s. David, who rem. to Dutchess Co. Surviving him she m.

NATHAN 5 m. Anna dau. of Capt. Isaac Barnes and had ch. Samuel 6, Isaac Barnes 6, Nancy 6, Frances 6, Hannah 6, Augustus 6, Julia 6, Nathan
6 and Henry 6. His narrow means induced him to emigrate, in 1792, to the town of Shoreham, Vermont, on the eastern shore of lake Champlain, opposite Fort Ticonderoga. This new wheat bearing region had been made familiar to Capt. Barnes by his service in the French war. By reason of infirm health he transferred the burden of his affairs to his eldest son, but was zealous in building up the church of which he was deacon. In the history of Shoreham, by Rev Thos. F, Goodhue, it is recorded of him that "he served his day and generation faithfully, and is held in grateful remembrance by those who are intimately acquainted with him." He d. at Shoreham, May 26, 1811, 64, and his wid. d. July 14, 1812, 63. Of his ch. Isaac Barnes 6 m. Lucinda dau. of Capt. Danes of Sag-Harbor, and rem. to Albany and d. there in 1810; Nancy 6 m.

One of the sons of his wife (by her 1st hushand) was the celebrated clergyman Dr. Trueman Post, of St. Louis, Missouri. Julia Hand m. Erastus Barnum and d. at Shoreham Feb. 14, 1855; Nathan 6 d. July 4, 1812; Henry 6 d. in childhood.
CAPT. SAMUEL 6 (eldest s. of Dea. Nathan 5) became at an early age mate of the ship, of which his brother-in-law, Capt. Clark, was master and part owner. He was largely instrumental in the change of residence of his father from E. Hampton to Shoreham. In association with Capt. Sherman (who afterward established the 1st line of steamboats on Lake Champlain,) he planned and prepared for an extensive business upon and along the Hudson river, but he abandoned these plans, at the summons of his father, and thereafter devoted himself to the care of the latter and of the Shoreham farm. When the British military and naval forces threatened the valley of Lake Champlain. during the war of 1812, he marched to Plattsburg in command of about 192 men, and his company, a battalion, is said to have included every able bodied male in the town. He married March 4, 1801, Elizabeth dau. of Rev. Richard Sill, of Granville, Washington Co., N. Y. and d. at Shoreham Sept. 13, 1845. Their ch. were Richard C. 7, Augustus C. 7, Nancy Augusta 7, Susan Amelia 7, Eliza Ann 7 and Harriet 7.
REV. RICHARD C. 7 b. Jan. 21, 1802 was twice m. but survived wife and ch. and d. at his residence in Brooklyn July 1870 d. s. p. Nancy Augusta 7 b. Dec. 17, 1806, m. Dr. Nelson G. Chipman and d.

July 15, 1818, m. Louis Doolittle and d. June 3, 1842, at Belvidere, Ill.
AUGUSTUS C. 7 b. Sept. 9, 1803, m. Marcia Salome, dau. of Samuel Northrup and d. March 1878 in his 75th year. Educated under the private tutelage of Professors of Middlebury College and at the law school of Prof. Gould of Litchfield, Ct. he was admitted to the bar at the May term in 1830. He established his office at Crown Point, in Essex Co. on Lake Champlain, but. rem. to Elizabethtown the shire town of that county, on his appointment to the office of Surrogate April 15, 1831. He was elected to Congress in 1838, but shared the general defeat of his party in 1840. In 1844 he was elected to the old Senate of the State when that body (with certain Judges) constituted the Court of Final appeal. As Senator, he was chairman of the judiciary committee which, in 1847, framed the legislation requisite to adopt the administration of justice to the new constitution of 1846. Among the labors of his committee was the division of the State into 8 judicial districts, a division which has never since been disturbed. He was one of the Judges first elected to the Supreme Court, as reorganized by this constitution, and served for the term of 8 years, from 1847 to 1855, the last year of such service being as a member of the Court of Appeals. The purity, integrity and ability, and devotion to duty, which characterized his judicial career, were recognized and respected throughout the State but the sudden uprising of what was known as the "know-nothing" party, and the violence of political. feeling led to his retirement from the bench. Thereafter until his death, he continued the practice of his profession at Elizabethtown. The ch. of Judge Augustus C. 7 were Clifford 8, Samuel 8, Ellen 8, Marcia 8 and Richard 8. Ellen Salome 8 m. Matthew Hale, now of Albany, and d. Oct. 10, 1867; Marcia Augusta 8 m. Jonas C. Heartt, of Troy; and d. July 12, 1862. The three sons were all grad. from Union College, Schenectady, and all followed the profession of their father. Clifford A. 8 has been for many years and still is a member of the bar of N. Y. city; Richard Lockhart 8 succeeded to his father's office and practice at Elizabethtown, and is one of the most eminent advocates in northern New-York.
SAMUEL 8 b. at Elizabethtown May 1833, rem. to Albany where he became the junior of the law firm of Cagger, Porter & Hand. In Jan. 1865, upon the elevation of Judge Porter to the bench, he began his career as advocate before the Court of Appeals. In the language of Chief Justice Ruger, on the occasion of his death, (as reported 102 N. Y. Reports): "he stood in the front rank of his profession and had attained high honor in both professional and judicial employments. * * His forensic efforts were always distinguished by thoroughness of preparation, perfect and expert knowledge of the case in hand, a close and comprehensive appreciation of the legal questions involved, and of the reason and philosophy of the rules bearing upon them, a logical and felicitous method of arragement and presentation. His unexpected death, occurring in the prime of life, was deeply felt by the Court, and must universally be regarded as a great loss to the public as well as to the profession which he elevated and advanced." He was reporter of the Court of Appeals from 1869 to 1872. He repeatedly declined important offices, tendered him by Govs. Tilden, Robinson and Cleveland, respectively, but in 1878 he became Judge of the Court of Appeals, by unsolicited appointment of Gov. Robinson. This appointment was welcomed as an ideal one, by the press of both parties, in all parts of the State. The hostility of Tammany Hall to the Governor and his friends was, however, so bitter, that the name of Judge Hand was withdrawn from the nominating convention of his party, and at the end of the year 1878, he left the bench and resumed his position at the bar. He was an accomplished scholar, not only in his profession but in the general field of science and literature. He died at his residence in Albany, May 1886, and was survived by his w. Lydia and two ch. Lydia 9 w. of Dr. Henry Hun, and Billings Learned 9.

THE HEDGES FAMILY

Savage writes "one William Hedges, of Hampton. L. I. 1650, may have been freem. of Mass. 1634." This sums up all his knowledge on subject. George R. Howell, the historian, finds his name on no passenger list and intimates that he may have left England without Royal permission. The name is often spelled Hodges, and I think the William Hodges named as one of the Company who belonged to the settlement of Taunton, Mass., in 1643, is the same one named as Hedges, in East-Hampton at an early date. See memoirs of Plymouth Colony, Vol. II, p. 267. In 1675 John Hodges there succeeded to his father's right and Henry Hodges to the rights that was John Gallup's; ib. p. 279.
Steven 2 son of William 1 had son John 3, looking like it. These may be ch. of the first William. As an early settler of East-Hampton, it is probable he was from the same locality in England, with the same political and religious opinions, and like thoughts and aims. Nothing in the records seems otherwise. He was constable in 1663. His will is dated March 17, 1672-3, and witnessed by Thos. James, was approved Nov. 17, 1674. The inventory of his estate amounted to 193, 12s, 6d. See records of Suffolk Co. p. 40. The will names his wife Rose, his eldest son Steven, his son Isaac, and mentions without naming, his four daughters.
WILLIAM HEDGES 1 d. 1674, w. Rose and ch. Stephen 2 b. Jan. 1634-5, Isaac 2 and 4 daughters.
STEPHEN 2 d. July 7, 1734, ch. John 3 b. 1670, Daniel 3 b. 1677, William 3 b. 1680. d. Nov. 4, 1768, 88.

COL. DAVID HEDGES, JR. 6 b. June 14, 1779, d. Jan. 1, 1856 77, was a man of unusual intelligence, good judgment and strong common sense. He served the public as a silversmith all his life. His house and shop next south of Clinton Academy were the resort of those seeking counsel or social enjoyment. He had many and strong friends. He represented Suffolk County in the Assembly in the years 1825, 1829, 1833. He held many town offices besides that of Supervisor. Few men have enjoyed more fully the respect and confidence of their fellow men and deservedly so. His son John C. Hedges, M. D. although of sweet, modest retiring manner, was like his father in intellect, judgment and good sense; an omniverous reader, an untiring antiquarian, an attractive companion. No descendant perpetuates their light. The fragrant memory of their virtues and their friendship yet survive. This tribute to their worth the writer, their kinsman, is impelled to record.

Between North West Creek and Three Mile Harbor there was a convenient anchoring ground for whaling ships outward bound, called "Hedges' Banks."
