PREFACE. 

The manner in which the intentions of 
deceased persons, expressed in their last 
wills, are carried out, or rather in which these 
intentions are legalized, is sui generis in the 
State of New York, which as a Colony was 
first governed under Roman-Dutch law, and 
it seems appropriate that a volume which 
gives abstracts of wills, made in Colonial 
days, as well as after the organization of the 
State, should have a history of the legal 
proceedings to which last wills were and are 
subjected as 

INTRODUCTION. 

According to ** The Roman Law of Testa- 
ments, Codicils," etc., by Moses A. Dropsie, 
the form, "last will and testament," almost 
universally used, and the term ''will" for 
" testament," are incorrect, because the 
Roman Law, from which testamentary dis- 
position of property was embodied into the 
common law, only knew the term testa- 
mentuni, and never employed the words itl- 
tima voluntas or voluntas. 



iv Introduction. 

It is not intended to take issue on this 
question here, but simply to tell what was 
done at different phases of the history of 
New York, to give legal force to the last 
wishes of a deceased person concerning his 
or her property. 

New York having first been settled by the 
Dutch, the Roman-Dutch law regulated the 
making of testamentary disposition of prop- 
erty. It allowed such dispositions to be 
made in two ways, /. e., orally or in writing. 
A party made a last will orally, or by word 
of mouth ("which kind of last will is mostly 
in use among us," says van Leeuwen in his 
Roman-Dutch Law), by telling two members 
of the local Court, respectively an Alderman 
and the Secretary, or a notary before two 
witnesses, how the property, owned by 
the testator, was to be divided among the 
heirs ; the notary reduced these intentions 
to writing, put the notes into proper shape, 
and having read the same over to the tes- 
tator and witnesses, asked the former, in the 
presence of the latter, whether he or she un- 
derstood the nature of the document and 
whether what was taken down was the 
testator's wish and last will. In confirma- 
tion of it the testator, the witnesses, and the 
notary then subscribed the writing, of which 
the notary made a record in his official 



Introduction. v 

minutes, so that, if required, he could give 
a copy of it. Wills were made in this way 
for many years after the Colony was gov- 
erned by English laws, as No. i (A i) 
shows, which at the same time was proved 
according to the Duke's Laws. 

A will in writing, also called a close will, 
was one whereby the testator had expressed 
his intentions in writing:, and, having: sub- 
scribed and sealed it, had handed the same 
so closed to a notary in the presence of two 
witnesses, declaring at the same time that 
the writing contained his or her testament. 
The document was then endorsed by the 
notary as ''The testament of N. N.," an 
official minute of the transaction was made, 
and the testator and witnesses subscribed it. 
This latter way of making a last will seems 
to have been the custom during the Dutch 
period of the Colony of New York, for in 
no other way can we account for the small 
number of wills, antedating the year 1664, 
found in the official records of the Courts 
and of the various notaries of Dutch times. 

Both kinds of testaments, oral as well as 
close, being invariably made before judicial 
officers, did not require proof and probate, 
which came in with the English occupation 
in 1664. 

The English conquerors brought with them 



vi Introduction. 

the Code of Laws, called the " Duke's Laws," 
which say, under the article Adrtimistration : 
"Vpon the Death of Any P''son the Consta- 
ble with two Overseers of the Parish shall 
repare to the House of the Deceased Party 
to Enquire after the manner of his Death 
and of his Will and Testament. . . . That 
noe Administracon be granted until the 
Second Sessions after the Party's Decease, 
(except) to the Widdow or Child, Brother or 
Sister, to whom it may be imediately granted. 
The said Widdow, Child, Brother or Sister 
bringing sufficient Security for the p''forming 
of all things the Law requires. . . . If 
any Executors nominated in the Will and 
knoweing there of shall not prove the same at 
the Next Court of Sessions which shall bee 
about thirty Days after the Decease of the 
P'ty or shall not cause the same to be Re- 
corded by the recorder or Clerke of that 
Court . . . Every such P''son . . . shall 
be liable to be sued. . . . That the Clerke 
of the Sessions, when he Carryes the Pro- 
bates or Commissions of Admicon to be 
Signed Doe then also certifie into the Re- 
corder's Office att New Yorke the name of 
the Testator or the Party Deceased. . . 
Wills to be proved and Admicon granted

of one hundered pounds shall pay one shil- 



Introduction. vii 

ling, if hundered pounds five shillings, and 
soe Propotionable five shillings for Each 
hundered pounds towards the Defraying of 
Court Charges." 

This law distinctly says, a will was to be 
proved in the Court of Sessions, but the 
minutes of the Court of Assizes, then not 
only the highest Court of the Colony, but also 
vested with legislative authority, tell, under 
November 2, 1667: "This day the will of 
William Ludlam was proved in court ; " on 
November 4, 1667, the same Court granted 
letters of administration on the estate of 
Samuel Andrews, lying in Oysterbay and 
Horseneck, L. I., to John Richbell, of Momo- 
ronock, " on behalf of Johanna, the widow of 
Nicholas Davison, and Richard Russell, of 
Charles Towne, Mass." We further read in 
the minutes of this Court for its session 
of October 7, 1668 : " Capt Thomas Exton's 
will was proved and y^ Execf^ allowed 
of," "Charles Morgan, his will was proved 
and the Executrix allowed of," " William 
How, his will was formerly proved in 
the Mayors Court, the Executors allowed 
of," "Letters of Administration granted to 
Mary, the widow and Relict of Robert 
Seely." 

It seems evident, that at that time no dis- 
tinction was made between the terms of

proving and probating * a testament, al- 
though the latter was exercised, as the above 
quoted reference to the will of William How 
shows, by the highest Court, which then per- 
formed the duties of the later established 
Prerogative Court. This Prerogative Court 
had its beginning, as far as the Province of 
New York was concerned, in the following 
section of the Instructions given to Gov- 
ernour Dongan, May 29, 1686 : " § 35. And 
to the End the Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction f 
of the said Archbishop of Canterbury may 
take place in that Our Province as farr as 
conveniently may bee We doe think fitt 
that you give all Countenance and encour- 
agement in y^ exercise of the same ; except- 
ing only the Collating of Benefices, granting 
licenses for Marriage and Probat of Wills, 
which we have reserved to you Our Gov- 
ernour & to y^ Commander-in-chief for the 
time being." The same instructions were 
given to the succeeding Governours, but it is 
evident from a letter, written by Governour 

* According to Abbott's Law Dictionary, \o probate meant the 
approval of the sufficiency of the will by the proper Court, i.e., 
in English times the Prerogative Court, while to prove a will 
was to establish by evidence or submit a will with testimony of 
witnesses as to execution to a Court of proper jurisdiction. 

t In England, prior to 1857, probate jurisdiction was in the 
ecclesiastical court of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and 
hence the Bishop's Mitre in the seal. 



Introduction. ix 

Lord Bellomont to the Lords of Trade and 
Plantations, May 15, 1699, that the fees from 
this source of revenue were not large, for he 
says : '* In thirteen months that I have been 
here, I have got but ;^83. 6/ N. Y. money 
($2o8,ff) from the Secretary for passes for 
Ships, Licenses for Marriages and Probats of 
Wills and all other things, wherein the Seal 
of the Province was used." 

In the meantime, the first General Assem- 
bly of the Province had on the 1 1 th of 
November, 1692, passed a law regulating 
the proving of wills, that is the verification 
by the witnesses of the testator's signature 
and their own. This law directed that wills 
relating to estates in Orange, Richmond, 
Westchester, and Kings Counties be proved 
in New York. In the other Counties the 
Court of the Common Pleas, or if the 
Court was not in session, the Judge of 
the Court, assisted by two Justices of the 
Peace, was to examine the witnesses and 
certify the examinations to the Secretary's 
office, whereupon the Governour, sitting as 
Judge of the Prerogative Court, granted his 
Probat. The Common Pleas, consisting of the 
Judge and Justices of the Peace, were, however, 
authorized to grant the probat where estates 
were less than ;^5o. This law was amended 
November 24, 1750, in so far that the 



X Introduction. 

Judges, Justices, and Clerk of Common Pleas 
for Orange Co. were also empowered " to 
take the probate of wills and grant letters of 
administration." The Prerogative Court had 
also been established, as an " Account of all 
Establishments of Jurisdictions in New York 
Province" * tells us : *'The Governour dis- 
charges the place of Ordinary in granting 
administracons and proveing Wills and the 
Secretary is Register. The Governour is 
about to appoint Delegates in the remoter 
parts of the government with Supervisors 
looking after intestates estates and provideing 
for Orphans." 

The Governours went further than ap- 
pointing " Delegates for the remoter parts of 
the government," they appointed the Secre- 
tary and his Deputy, Surrogates, or Deputy 
Judges of the Prerogative Court. The re- 
sult is described as follows in a letter from 
Governour, Sir Henry Moore, to the Lords 
of Trade, June 12, 1766: "The Secretary 
of this Province and his Deputy have been 
frequently appointed by the Governour's Sur- 
rogates, so that the whole business of the 
office has been in their hands. Upon this 
they have taken upon themselves an Au- 
thority wh'^^ they are not vested with with- 
out being appointed Surrogates and have

granted probates upon Wills sent up out of 
the Country, which were proved there, with- 
out consulting the Governour or making him 
acquainted with any such transactions, by 
which means they would wrest from him the 
power expressly given by his Majy in his 
Instructions." Sir Henry appointed Philipp 
Livingston, Junior, as principal Surrogate and 
Register of the Prerogative Court, but thereby 
also involved himself in a quarrel with the 
Secretary of the Province, which continued 
for several years after his death in September, 
1769, and was not settled until the last Royal 
Governour, Tryon, could report in 1774, 
"The Prerogative Court concerns itself only 
in the Probate of Wills, in matters relating 
to the administration of Intestates' Estates 
and granting Marriage Licenses. The Gov- 
ernour is properly the Judge of this Court, 
but usually acts by Deligate." This pro- 
cedure continued in the parts of the Province, 
held by the English, until 1783, while the 
new Constitution of the State of New York, 
adopted in 1777, recognized a Judge of the 
Court of Probates, and the law, passed March 
16, 1778,* directed: "The Judge of the 
Court of Probates of this State shall be vested 
with all and singular the powers and au- 
thorities and have the like jurisdiction in

xii Introduction. 

testamentary matters, which, while the State, 
as the Colony of New York, was subject to 
the Crown of Great Britain, the Governour or 
the Commander-in-Chief of the Colony for the 
time being had and exercised as Judge of the 
Prerogative Court : Except as to the nomina- 
tion and appointment of Surrogates in the 
several Counties, who shall be nominated 
and appointed by the Council of appoint- 
ment and commissioned under the Great 
Seal : And that all letters of administration to 
be granted by the said Judge . . . shall 
be tested in the name of the Judge of the 
said Court." 

"From this date," says Judge Charles P. 
Daly,* " to 1789 this new tribunal, the Court 
of Probates, continued to exercise the same 
jurisdiction as the Prerogative Court formerly 
had done. The proofs of wills, where the 
deceased had effects in more than one 
County, were taken before the Judge of this 
Court, and before the Surrogate, where the 
effects were exclusively in one County ; and 
in both cases the proof of the will was * ap- 
proved and allowed ' in the name of the 
people before the Court of Probates, where it 
was recorded." 

The law of February 20, 1787, ** for set-

tling intestate estates, proving wills, etc.," 
had in the meantime curtailed the powers of 
this Court, by taking away from it the grant- 
ing of probates and letters of administration, 
which, except in certain specified cases, was 
conferred upon the Surrogates of the different 
Counties. The Constitution of 182 1 provided 
for the election of officers to perform the 
duties of Surrogate in Counties having a 
population of more than forty thousand ; and 
in keeping with this mandate of the Consti- 
tution the Legislature of 1823 abolished the 
Court of Probates altogether,* and granted 
its powers to the Surrogates of the different 
Counties, who were to be appointed by the 
Governour like other judicial officers. 

The Revised Statutes*}- define the powers 
of the Surrogate as follows : Art. I., § 7, 
"When any real estate shall be devised by 
will, any executor or devisee named therein 
. . . may have such will proved before 
the Surrogate of the County to whom the 
probate of the will of the testator would be- 
long " ; and Art. II., § 23, says : "The Sur- 
rogate of each County shall have sole and 
exclusive power, within the County, for 
which he may have been appointed (or, as 
now, elected), to take proofs of last wills and

testaments so far as the same relates to 
personal property of all deceased persons." 

A law " for the more speedy recovery of 
legacies," passed by the General Assembly 
of the Province in 1743, authorized any per- 
son, entitled to a legacy under a will, to bring 
action against the executor or administrator, 
after it became due, etc., in the Supreme 
Court, and in this way, whatever powers were 
not conferred upon Surrogates, devolved 
upon the Supreme Court, until the Statutes 
were revised in 1829. The wills, marked as 
recorded in Volumes IV. and V., are proved 
in the Supreme Courts at Albany and Utica. 

Although the Legislature ordered in 1 799, 
that all wills, on file in the State Court of 
Probates, and relating to property in what was 
then called the Southern Senatorial District, 
should be transferred to New York City, that 
law, it will be seen, was only carelessly car- 
ried out, for this Calendar brings to light 
many wills of New York City, Westchester 
County, and Long Island. 

In making these abstracts of wills the 
editor has been obliged to follow the arrange- 
ment of the files of wills in the office of the 
Clerk of the Court of Appeals, which is by the 
letters of the alphabet and chronological, but, 
as it will be seen, neither strictly alphabeti- 
cal nor strictly chronological. To facilitate
