Members of this family who have delved more or less 
into its genealogical lines have spelled the name in various 
ways, but the pioneer, Daniel, signed his name not only to 
his will but to documents requiring his signature as Justice 
of the Peace, as "Streing," and Charlotte, his widow, used 
the same spelling when signing her will many years later, 
but their children spelled it Strang, which represented in 
English what it sounded in French. 

In the letter of James II, addressed to the Solicitor 
General, authorizing the issuing of warrants of denization 
to French exiles, appear the names of Daniel Streing, 
Charlotte, his wife, and their children, Peter, Matthew, 
Mary and Anne (French Protestant Exiles by Agnew, Vol. 
VI. page 60). None of these children nor their descendants 
have ever been found in this country, unless the daughter 
Mary should prove to be the adopted daughter Mrs. Gilliot, 
mentioned in the Strang Manuscript on page nineteen of 
this volume. 

As there was another Streing family in London at the 
time, it is only fair to assume that there was a confusion 
of parentage. 

Daniel Streing was a member of the Reformed French 
Church, and in his later years a Ruling Elder. He was 
made Justice of the Peace because he was the only one in 
the community who met the required qualifications of a 
knowledge of the English language. 

It should be most pleasing to his descendants to know 
of their elegibility to the Huguenot Society of America, 
and I consider it a most happy privilege to preserve and 

place before them many lines of descent from one of our 
most widely known Westchester County French pioneers 
who suffered many privations in a new and wild country 

for his religious convictions. 

Yours very truly, 

Josephine C. Frost.

In 1672 Daniel L,Estrange of Orleans, France, was 
matriculated as a student of philosophy in the Academy of 
Geneva, Switzerland, which at that time was the only exist- 
ing place where a French Protestant could receive a liberal 
education in his own language. The "pretended reformed" 
were not allowed to have schools of their own in France; 
nor, on the other hand, was it permitted to send their chil- 
dren to the Catholic schools without previously renouncing 
their own and professing the national faith. 

A few years later we find that M. L' Estrange married 
Charlotte LeMestre of Orleans. A few years later still, 
the pair are residing in Paris, where the husband is tradi- 
tionally believed to have been an officer of the Royal Guard 
— a tradition which seems to derive some support from the 
fact that after his arrival in England he is known to have 
held a lieutenancy in the Royal Guard of James the II. 
Strange as it may seem, many Huguenots filled positions in 
the personal guard of Louis XIV., where they were com- 
paratively safe from persecution, as their places were held 
by a certain unwritten law of inheritance from the days 
when Henry IV. had filled its ranks, from the commander 
down to the privates, with those upon whose fidelity he 
could best rely; and these were undoubtedly his old brethren 
in arms and in the faith which political reasons had caused 
him to forsake. 

While her husband was in the Royal Guards Mme. 
L'Estrange was one of the ladies in waiting upon the

dauphiness, Marie de Baviere, the gracious, studious, retir- 
ing and accomplished daughter-in-law of Louis XIV. Thus 
the wife of the Huguenot was often obliged to serve her 
turn of duty at St. Germain and sometimes at Versailles. 
Although Mme. L'Estrange was well known to be of the 
"pretended reformed" faith, she was not molested, because 
she was a recognized favorite of the dauphiness. Perhaps 
the position of his wife at court combined with his own in 
the Royal Guard to save M. L'Estrange for a while from 
persecution, although he was known to be a determined, if 
not an aggressive, Huguenot; but the time came when he 
was obliged to seek safety in flight, and that, too, without 
seeing his wife. She was then performing her tour de 
service at Versailles; and her husband could only send her 
a verbal message requesting that she should join him, with 
their child, and as much of their property as she could con- 
vert into ready money, at some designated point on the coast, 
where he would wait for her as long as possible, and whence 
they could take ship for England. 

The person who was intrusted with the message either 
could not or did not convey it to the wife until many days, if 
not some weeks, after her husband's flight from Paris. I 
relate the story as I heard it from the lips of my maternal 
grandmother, who had it from her paternal grandfather. 
Some of the particulars which she related are also given in 
Baird's "History of the Huguenot Emigration to America." 
I believe that the parts which rest only on oral tradition are 
not less trustworthy than those quoted by Mr. Baird, which 
rest upon documentary evidence. 

The husband's message was at last delivered, not di- 
rectly to the wife, but to some one who conveyed it to the 
dauphiness. In spite of, or rather because of, her high posi- 
tion, the dauphiness was herself so closely watched that she 
had not the opportunity to transmit the husband's message 
safely until the hour of the coucher, which that night 

Colonial Days and Ways 3 

chanced to be particularly late. As the Huguenot lady was 
slipping the night-robe over the head of the dauphiness, the 
latter hastily whispered: "In the cabinet at the foot of the 
stairs leading to my apartments, you will find one who will 
tell you what you must do, and do without a moment's delay. ,, 
Aloud she added: "I am sorry you are suffering so much. 
You are excused from duty until I send for you. ,, 

A few moments later Mme. L' Estrange was in the desig- 
nated cabinet. There she first heard that her husband had 
left Paris, she having for some time supposed him to be in 
hiding in that city, and also learned that, his flight having 
become known to the authorities, his property had been con- 
fiscated. The kind dauphiness had thoughtfully given a 
purse of money to the messenger, but it was not large, as 
she was not highly favored by her father-in-law, and had 
never very much cash at her command. The messenger also 
had two horses in readiness, and was ordered to accompany 
Mme. L' Estrange until she should have got safely started 
on her journey, under the care of friends whom she ex- 
pected to meet. But the dauphiness had apparently forgotten 
the existence of the child. The infant of two years was 
under the care of the married sister of Mme. L'Estrange in 
Paris, and thither the mother felt that she must first pro- 
ceed, though the delay was well-nigh fatal to the success of 
her undertaking. 

So well watched was every avenue of escape from Paris 
that several days were lost before an opportunity for leaving 
presented itself. One morning, before daybreak, Mme. 
L'Estrange disguised herself as a very poor woman seeking 
to go beyond the walls to glean food from the over-laden 
market wagons coming in. She carried her sleeping child 
in her arms. Her twin sister, dressed in all respects pre- 
cisely as herself, followed at a safe distance. Arrived at 
the city gate, the mother begged to be allowed to take her 
child with her, but was not permitted, and it was only by 

4 Strang Genealogy 

addressing the sentry in his native patois of Orleans country 
that he was induced to let the mother herself pass out, while 
he retained the child as a hostage for her return. Two hours 
later, while the awakened child was crying lustily, and the 
half distracted sentry was busily looking for contraband 
goods in the market-wagons of the peasants, the aunt sud- 
denly appeared, as if she had come in with the wagons, and 
claimed the child, which was gladly yielded to the supposed 
mother. Not for many years after did the true mother again 
see her child; but when he was grown he came to America, 
and married here. He it was who related the story to his 
son, the father of my mother's mother. 

During several weeks after Mme. L'Estrange had 
escaped from Paris her adventures were many. When she 
finally reached the coast, it was only to find that her husband 
had been obliged to fly some time before. Her voyage to 
England was made inside of one of the very large casks in 
which the common kinds of wine were shipped to the whole- 
sale dealers in London. In similar casks more than sixty 
persons are said to have been shipped, at the same time, in 
the hold of the same small trading-vessel, whose English 
captain was liberally paid for running risks attending such 

During several years there were many hundreds, if not 
thousands, of escapes made in the same manner; and who 
can now imagine the horrors of such a voyage? The trip 
across the English Channel is not very welcome to the 
majority of travelers to-day, when not more than two or 
three hours are required, in vessels which, though bad 
enough according to our present standards, are princely 
compared with those of two centuries ago. In those days 
it frequently took a week to cross, and sometimes as long a 
time, or longer, was spent rocking at anchor, waiting for a 
favorable wind. Of course, the casks holding human freight 
were not hoisted on board until the latest moment; but 

Colonial Days and Ways 5 

whether waiting on shore in momentary peril of detection, 
or confined in casks on board ship, what an eternity must 
every hour have seemed! 

With a small store of wine in a leather bottle, and some 
bread, a pillow or two, and such clothing as might be con- 
veniently packed in with her, the wretched refugee was 
placed in the great cask, into the sides of which many small 
holes had been bored to admit air without attracting notice. 
The head of the cask was then secured in its place, and — 
carefully right side up — it was placed in the hold, where it 
was skilfully braced to prevent its being rolled about when 
the vessel was under way. My mother has seen, in the 
possession of one of her mother's brothers, a small pillow, 
filled with softly carded rolls of wool, covered with a stained 
and faded slip of brocaded silk, which was sacredly 
treasured because it had eased the buffeted head of the re- 
vered great-grandmother, when she was tossed about in her 
narrow prison in the hold of the blockade-running vessel on 
the uneasy waves of the English Channel. * * * * 

For the first few years after their escape, M. and Mme. 
L'Estrange fared comparatively well in England, because 
the friends of the former had procured for him a lieutenancy 
in the Royal Guard of James II. But this monarch was not 
himself a Protestant and not too well disposed towards the 
Huguenots, though state policy forced him to receive them 
well. It was probably for this reason that Lieutenant 
L'Estrange, a few months before James was forced to fly 
from his throne, sold his commission, and, with the proceeds 
of this sale and that, of some jewels, came, with his wife, to 
this country. Here he soon joined the settlement at New 
Rochelle and there and in New York City for many years 
he taught his own language to those Americans who wished 
to learn it, as well as gave instruction in the classical lan- 
guages to boys who wished to enter Yale or Columbia (then 
King's) College. * * * *

It was twenty years after the first Huguenots came to 
New Rochelle before the refugees could spare the money to 
build a church or support a pastor. The nearest place where 
religious services were held in their own tongue was New 
York City, twenty miles away; therefore, on every Sunday 
during the year, in fair weather or in foul, all who were able 
to do so started very early in the morning, that they might 
not miss the opening prayer at 10:30 A. M. There were few 
horses owned among the refugees and fewer vehicles of any 
kind. Such of both as they possessed were devoted exclu- 
sively to the use of those who were not strong enough to 

Many persons now living (1900) may still remember 
Miss Isabella Donaldson, lately of Barrytown, N. Y., as a 
person greatly interested in religious matters. She kept a 
scrap book composed of original communications concern- 
ing the hardships and trials of those who had come to this 
country under stress of persecution. In this book was a 
copy of a letter which was written about 1704 or 1705. I 
give this letter as I copied it in 1860 from her scrap book: 
"Every week I see the Huguenots pass the house in troops 
on their way to church in the City. As they pass here all 
have lunch bags or baskets and also their shoes on their 
arms. Yet they are not bare-footed, for they are all pro- 
vided with wooden shoes, such as the peasants wear in 
France and in the Low Countries. When they reach a 
stream not far from the church where they have erected a 
shed, they all stop and such of them as have other shoes 
change them before going on ; the others wash their feet and 
their wooden shoes and put them on again. They are all 
very plainly dressed, but some of them are very elegant 
looking persons with most charming manners. As they pass 
they are generally singing some of their psalms, that is, the 
psalms of David, translated into French. Some of the airs 
are very grand and spirt-stirring, but many of them are sad 

Colonial Days and Ways 7 

as dirges, and why should they not be? For surely this 
people have suffered much. Still they are nearly always 
smiling and happy. But to think of walking forty miles in 
going to and from church every Lord's Day- I am afraid 
my Christianity would never be equal to that." * * * * 

Homespun linen yarn of heavy quality was by the Dutch 
and English colonies dyed and then woven into stripes and 
checks of varying degrees of ugliness for bed and window 
curtains. The French settlers used for the same purpose 
either purely white linen or that which had but one color. 
The prefered shades seem to have been a light blue, a sort 
of dusky green, and a subdued gold-color made by dyes of 
which they brought the secret with them. These linens, 
when made into hangings bordered by an embroidered vine 
or arabesque design in white upon the gold or in gold and 
white upon the blue, or of varied colors upon all the white, 
were delicately beautiful, and became heirlooms in many a 
family, including that of my mother's mother. * * * * 
The bedroom of my mother's grandmother L'Estrange has 
often been described to me. The floor was painted as nearly 
as possible to match the subdued gold of the linen hangings. 
The ceilings and side walls were whitewashed with lime. 
The windows and dressing tables were hung with tastefully 
arranged draperies, bordered with a grape-vine pattern em- 
broidered in white, and further trimmed at the edge with a 
knitted fringe of white linen yarn. 

The tall four-posted bedstead of carved mahogany was 
provided with a tester, with long draw-curtains, over which 
valances about two feet and a few inches deep, and cut into 
deep scallops on the lower edge, hung in a full ruffle from 
the cornice. Foot-curtains and all were of the same linen.

chair had a neatly fitted slip-cover to match the draperies of 
the room. 

The linen yarn for the draperies of this room was all 
said to have been spun by the first Mme. L'Estrange and her 
daughters, and it was afterwards woven under their direc- 
tion! and embroidered by themseves. Until a comparatively 
late date there still existed other bits of their handicraft, in 
the shape of fans of peacock feathers and humbler ones of 
goose and turkey feathers — these last decorated with painted 
flowers. There were also some hand-screens made by cover- 
ing small hoops with tightly drawn slips of white silk, the 
joinings hidden by narrow fringe. One screen was em- 
broidered with colored silks, others were daintily painted, 
and all were supplied with handles of carved or smoothly 
turned and polished wood. When a child I saw one of the 
peacock-feather fans (unfortunately moth-eaten), and a pair 
of the prettily painted hand screens. The latter were used 
to hold between the face and the blaze of the open wood 
fires. * * * * 

Very graceful and delicately executed embroideries 
upon the daintiest of muslins are still shown which were 
made by members of this family, but possibly by those of a 
later generation. They are evidently of a French design. 
In the courts of Louis XIV. lace-making was an art culti- 
vated almost assiduously as that of embroidery. My sister 
and I now have a few yards of two patterns of lace made 
by Mme. L'Estrange, which happened to be trimming some 
part of her under-dress at the time of her escape from Paris. 
She taught the secret of its manufacture to her daughters, 
and for three generations her descendants made similar lace, 
though none was as filmy as that wrought in the boudoirs 
of Versailles, because it was impossible to get threads suffi- 
ciently fine. * * * * 

The Huguenot, fleeing from his native land to escape 
death or worse, felt himself an exile and an outcast, and for 

Colonial Days and Ways 9 

those reasons ceased to speak his own language as speedily 
as possible. My grandmother and her many brothers and 
sisters were only the fourth generation in this country. As 
their own grandfather had been left behind in France and 
educated there they might be counted as the third generation 
here. Yet with few exceptions their speech betrayed no 
traces of their national origin. Though their great-grand- 
father, the refugee, taught his own language for several 
years, the household use of it was distinctly discouraged by 
him. * * * * My mother's grandfather and his brother 
fought in the French and Indian Wars and the first was also 
an officer in our Revolutionary Army.

as Strange, and even, in a few cases, was changed to Strong.

Daniel — afterwards the refugee — was sent to Switzerland 
to enter the academy there as a student of philosophy, July 
29, 1672, his surname was purposely misspelled as Streing to 
avoid giving a clue by which his father's persecutors might 
discover whither the son had been sent; and that afterward, 
upon the young student's return to France, and during his 
stay there as a member of the Royal Guards, he had resumed 
his rightful name. But later, when he was obliged either to 
abandon his principles or to fly for his life, he thought it 
wise to again adopt the name of Streing for the sake of the 
members of his family still residing in France; for as is well 
known, the spies of Louis XIV. were almost as active in 
London as in Paris. * * * * The son did not come over 
until he was twenty-one or twenty-two years of age. By 
this time the habit of the name had become fixed. The son 
seems to have retained his name as L'Estrange, and some 
of the others used it, at short and irregular periods. Both 
L'Estrange and Streing appear to be names belonging to the 
numerous ranks of the petty gentry. * * * *

I would give much if I could recall now the air to which 
my mother's mother and one of her sisters, both of them 
considerably over seventy years of age at the time, tremu- 
lously sang the psalm in which occur the words : 
"Quiconque espere au Dieu vivant, 
Jamais ne perira!" 

But both the air and the rest of the words have escaped 
my recollection. What has not forsaken me is the memory 
of two petite but still remarkably handsome women, one of 
them very erect, the other a good deal bent, but both still 
vigorous of mind and body, as, in the late twilight of a sum- 
mer Sunday evening, they sat together in a shadowy room 
and crooned the old sacred song with a strong and faith- 
inspired emphasis on JAMAIS, stopping in a startled, half- 
ashamed way as soon as they discovered "Little Pitchers" 
trying to efface herself in a dark corner, because she well 
knew that the entertainment would end as soon as her pres- 
ence should be known.

The following account of the Strang family was com- 
municated by the Rev. Charles W. Baird of Rye, N. Y., to 
the New York Record, in 1871, and he said there were rea- 
sons for believing that the writer was Mr. John Strang of 
Peekskill, N. Y., a lawyer and a man of some note, who died 
in that place about forty years ago (1831) well advanced in 
years. The manuscript is copied leteratim and was com- 
prised in a small book of twenty-eight pages. Mr. Baird 
says that the hand writing as well as the construction of the 
sentences, seems to indicate the author's French extraction 
and of which he seemed pardonably proud. 

Strang Manuscript 

A memorandum of the family of Daniel l,estrange and 
of Charlotte, his wife, who escaped from France in the year 
1685, in the time of the persecution under Lewis the XIV. 
and came to America in 1688 and settled at New Rochelle, in 
the County of Westchester, then Province of New York. 

Daniel l,estrange was born about the year 1650 in the 
City of Paris in France, and educated for the mercantile 
line of business; which he commenced at the age of twenty- 
two years, and about that time married to Charlotte Hubert, 
a daughter of Francis Hubert and Levina his wife, Citizens 
of Paris in France, and soon after settled himself in the 
mercantile line in Company with Gabriel Hubert a brother of 
Mrs. L estrange his wife. Mr. l,estrange and his wife had 


12 Strang Genealogy 

been educated in their religious tenants in the Episcopal 
(Reformed) faith. The Protestants in France had for near 
a Century under the Edict of Henry IV continued to exercise 
their religion freely; but in the year 1685 Lewis XIV the 
King of France instigated through his enthusiasm in the 
Roman Catholick faith was induced to revoke the Edict of 
Henry IV which had confirmed the Protestants in the full 
exercise of their religious tenants and continued ever since 
that time. This measure in his revocal of this Edict which 
had secured ever since the time of Henry IV the protestants 
in France in the full exercise of their religion was allowed 
and considered at once very arbitrary and very extremely 
impolitic since scarcely any inconveniencey had arisen in this 
time nearly a Century from the privileges enjoyed by the 
protestants under it. 

It has been considered irrevocable; therefore the great- 
est obstinacy of these religionists as is usual, now arose in 
proportion to the severity with which they were persecuted 
and threatened. Previous to the Edict of Henry IV which 
was passed in the year 1598 and called the Edict of Nantes 
great had been the sufferings of the Protestants; for in the 
year 1572 in one night at St. Bartholomew's (i. e. on St. Bar- 
tholomew's Eve.) 30,000 was massacred among whom was 
Admiral Coligni. The Prince of Conde was at the head of 
the Protestants. The Duke of Guise of the Catholicks ; that 
in about one Centry 1,000,000 suffered. In the course of the 
persecution which ensued the revocal of this Edict by which 
the liberty of conscience and the full exercise of their religion 
was denied to the Protestants about 500,000 persons were 
forced to seek refuge in different parts of Europe, who pre- 
ferred their liberty of conscience to their Country; about 
50,000 of whom sought their safety in Great Britain with 
liberty of conscience, where they were received by James II 
who is known by the name of the Duke of York; who openly 
aided them with money and protected them as protestant 

Strang Manuscript 13 

refugees with his power; admitting of them without any 
expense to the privileges of English subjects. Mr. l,estrange 
and his wife with Mr. Gabriel Hubert and others their neigh- 
bors and acquaintances were among those who were noxious 
to the Roman Catholicks and Jesuits from their great (illegi- 
ble) adherence to their protestant tenants; and therefore 
among those who were constrained to seek safety and take 
refuge in England from the cruelties practiced in the perse- 
cution, by death-tortures-exclusion from sleep-confiscation, 
etc. etc. 

Mr. 1, estrange and Mr. Hubert in their having sought 
their safety and relief, retired to the City of London in Eng- 
land where were some of their mercantile correspondents, to 
whom they introduced themselves; and Mr. l'estrange pro- 
cured for himself a Lieutenancy in the Guards of King 
James II and Mr. Hubert resided in the City of London and 
went into business in the Mercantile line. 

Mr. l,estrange and Mr. Hubert in having so escaped 
had left all of their property in France; and Mr. l,estrange 
had also left his wife with one child, a son, of about one year 
old exposed to the prevailing fury of the times, and to the 
rage and fury of the Roman Catholicks and Jesuits; the 
property of Mr. 1, estrange and Mr. Hubert was confiscated 
and Mrs. Testrange being thereby divested of it, she soon 
became destitute in a great measure of all support and sub- 
sistence and nearly suffering through the malice of the Cath- 
olicks and Jesuits. Under these circumstances, Mrs. 
l,estrange was constrained in the course of a year to attempt 
her escape also, and to seek her husband and brother through 
the extreme sufferings to which she was exposed to — for 
subsistence and necessaries of life; this she effected after 
many and repeated attempts by applications made to the 
guards of the City for a permission to go out of the same into 
the suburbs of the City with a view of procuring of such 
necessaries as those of wood- Meat- Bread- Water etc. etc. — 

14 Strang Genealogy 

the latter of which were frequently refused of which she was, 
and then very often experiencing of the greatest wants. This 
liberty being refused to her upon several and repeated solici- 
tations and applications made in the most submissive terms 
backed with the most pressing urgency painted, (sic.) She 
finally urged by necessity and hunger etc. which not only 
now but generally proves the parnet of all inventions, was 
reduced to the necessity again to attempt a repetition of her 
applications to the guards with all the most feeling urgency, 
and to propose to deposit her child a son of about two years 
old with the guards as a pledge for her return. 

The escape of the protestants was most narrowly 
watched and prevented under the most strict, rigid and at- 
tentive orders. 

This proposition was at length listened to by the officer 
of the guards upon such her most ardent and pressing en- 
treaty and accepted of and embraced, when she was per- 
mitted to pass through the gate of the City upon her so de- 
positing of her child to the care and custody of the guard; 
and so she effected her warmest and most anxious purpose 
under the pretense of passing only into the suburbs of the 
City and for the assigned purposes. 

She having by this means effected her escape did imme- 
diately proceed to England in the pursuit of her husband and 
brother and having come to the City of London, and entering 
the City was passing through a street when she was observed 
by some Gentlemen from an upper loft of a dwelling house — 
and being recognized as a French woman and also supposed 
to be a refugee, they addressed her by an inquiry from where 
she was — her business — her name and her wishes etc. — when 
they learned from her that she was a French refugee, and 
that she was in search of her husband and brother and who 
they were etc. She was then thereupon invited to come into 
the house, when she was soon made acquainted with the 
Gentlemen, and that they were acquainted with her husband

and brother, and that she should be conducted to them; that 
her husband was in the guards of the King and that her 
brother was in the city and was conducted to her husband 
by the gentlemen. Mr. l,estrange shortly after was from the 
extended benevolence and bounty of the English Govern- 
ment enabled to settle himself in the City of London where 
he resided and remained sometime; he continuing in the 
Guards until about the year 1688 when he having disposed 
of his commission was enabled thereby to aid himself and 
did embark with a number of protestant refugees his asso- 
ciates, many of whom were his acquaintances, for America, 
and arriving there landed at the City of New York in the 
course of the year 1688 with his wife and one son or more 
children, with a large number of those his associates french 
refugees. Mr. l,estrange now in Company with many of 
those his associates french refugees and acquaintances pro- 
ceeded to New Rochelle in the County of Westchester where 
they making a settlement did settle themselvs in their differ- 
ent and respective professions and callings of life, as Mer- 
chants, Physicians, farmers, Mechanicks etc. 

Mr. l,estrange having procured for his use a farm of 
new lands and a lot in the village as named he commenced 
a grazer and farmer. Among those of Mr. l,estrange inti- 
mate friends and associates and who accompanied each 
other to New York and from thence to New Rochelle was 
the family of the l,Besley (sicfl) — known by the name of 
Bayley (the English doctor called) — Allair-Guion Le Hom- 
medieu etc. between the descendants of some of these fami- 
lies there have been much familiar intercourse with Mr. 
l,estranges (until ?) about the beginning of the Revolution 
in America. 

Mr. l,estrange with his associates having made the set- 
tlement of New Rochelle where the Village is, he settled 
himself down on his lot in the settlement and improved his 
farm near where Peter Shute Esquire has since resided. 

16 Strang Genealogy 

Here he commenced the grazing business and occupation but 
his want of a competent knowledge of the business was so 
great as exposed him to many losses and much and great 
embarrassments and inconveniences, so that he did not from 
the newness of the country succeed to his expectation and 
wishes; this induced him to relinquish this occupation and 
turn his mind to some new course of dependence, and of 
embarking in the Mercantile line; this he did in the Village, 
paying an attention to his farming business also. In this 
way he continued residing in the village a few years in this 

Having resided a few years here he determined to settle 
himself at the Town of Rye, County of Westchester where 
was then a settlement progressing; accordingly he moved 
to Rye and there settled himself down with his family in the 
Mercantile-Innkeeper and farming business he having pro- 
cured a Lot in the Town plot and situate upon the East side 
of the Blind Block and including the lands East thereof 
and wheare the Park family have since possessed he having 
likewise a farm lying north of the town plot and near the 
line of Harrisons Purchase, including the lands since pos- 
sessed by Jesse Hunt Esquire; he was likewise a proprietor 
in the pattent of the white Plains where he had a farm sit- 
uate south of the Court house (now) and where Bartholo- 
mew Gedney has possessed and which has descended to the 
Gedney family. Mr. l,estrange resided in Rye for several 
years in the respective business of a farmer-Innkeeper and 
merchant and until his death which was about the year of 
1710 as near as can be ascertained, and was buried at the 
Episcopal Church at which he was an attendant and a mem- 
ber of it is said. His great antipathy to the Catholicks and 
Jesuits is said to have been very warm and almost unbounded, 
so that often it occurred upon the very mention of them and 
upon his recounting and recalling to his mind and memory 
the sufferings, cruelties and hardships which he had himself 

Strang Manuscript 17 

experienced, and which he had seen practiced upon the 
protestants in France he would often be most frequently 
elated to almost a frenzy and fury and scarcely able to resist 
his passion and govern and retain himself from violence 
when any of them was in company with him; of this some 
instances are related in particular. 

Mrs. l,estrange survived Mr. l,estrange with three sons 
— Daniel- Henry and Gabriel — and four daughters — Mary- 
Charlotte Penelope and Lucey. 

Lewis XIV The King of France in his lifetime or the 
Duke of Orleans the Regent after the death of Lewis in or 
about the year of 1720 by a proclamation notified all of such 
of the protestants refugees who had made their escape 
leaving their estates and properties in France to return, and 
that upon their personal application, or upon that of their 
representatives, that their several Estates and properties 
should be restored, returned and repossessed to and by them. 
Whereupon Mr. l'estrange being dead, Mrs. l,estrange em- 
braced the opportunity so offered by the proclamation for 
an application thereunder for that of her husband Mr. 
l,estranges property, and being aided by a Mr. Simpson a 
merchant (a jew) in the City of New York an acquaintance 
of Mr. l,estranges in his lifetime prepared her youngest son 
Gabriel who was so patronized by Mr. Simpson to go to 
France in the name of her husband Mr. 1, estrange deceased 
as his representative, and in pursuance of the proclamation 
to solicit the restoration of his estate in France which had 
been left there by him when he made his escape. Mrs. 
l,estrange having accomplished his preparations he set out 
for New York where he embarked for England and under 
the patronage of Mr. Simpson her friend in his way to 
France counting for the aid of his uncle and his friends in 
England. He arrived in London and from thence proceeded 
to France and arrived in the City of Paris where under the 
aid of Mr. Simpson he made his application in pursuance 

18 Strang Genealogy 

of the proclamation for the restoration of the estate of his 
late father. What aid was afforded to him by his uncle 
Hubert or his friends cannot be ascertained; he was so suc- 
cessful in some measure as report at this time passed as that 
he acquired a considerable sum, but not the full amount of 
the estate, and to what amount or sums remains very un- 
certain — as after he had accomplished his business he re- 
turned to England to his uncle Hubert in the City of London 
and from there forwarded to his Mother and the family a 
sum and but trifling in comparison with what was expected 
and what the estate was estimated at and was expected to 
be obtained as the report then passed, and he settled himself 
with his uncle Hubert and married in England. He only 
enabled his Mother by his remittance to settle her two sons 
and four daughters in a decent way. The Eldest son Daniel 
at the White Plains upon the farm of land asquired by her 
husband, Mr. l,estrange as one of the proprietors in pattent 
of the Wliite Plains, and where the Gedneys have possessed 
about south of the Court House. Henry, the other son, in 
the village or Rye on or near the homestead. Her daughters 
were married into the families of Budd, Purdy and Park of 
the County of Westchester; except the youngest who mar- 
ried to one Davie a merchant or planter from the West 
Indies (one of the Islands) where she went with him and 
settled and resided. Some of her descendants have but a 
few years ago resided in the City of Philadelphia and were 
very opulent. Mary married John Budd — Charlotte married 
Roger Park. Penelope to Samuel Purdy, Esquire and Lucey 

to Davie. Her son Gabriel after his return from 

France, remained in England and remained with his uncle 
Hubert in London where he married a wife and settled him- 
self. He had one child, a son, if no more; report says that 
he was opulent and in the mercantile line; but his filial duty 
and attention to his mother; and attention to the family 
which was much wanting, as he very seldom corresponded 

Strang Manuscript 19 

with them in the lifetime of his mother and less so with any 
of the family after her death. He lost his wife by her death 
and is said to have married a second. 

Mrs. l,estrange died in the town of Rye and about, the 
year of 1722 and aged woman as near as can be ascertained 
from information and was buried in the Church yard of the 
Episcopal Church of the Town having lived to see all her 
children settled from her. 

This information so far has been acquired by the Nar- 
rator, and who is indebted for it to a very respectable old 
Lady in the City of New York by the name of Mary Gilliot 
a widow who was a child of a French family of respectable 
refugees and who escaped from France also with Mr. 
l,estrange and his wife in the persecution to England and 
were intimate acquaintances of theirs; and whose parents 
having died in England Mr. and Mrs. l,estrange patronized 
and adopted into their family when a child, and brought her 
to America with them and with whom she remained and 
with Mrs. l,estrange after the death of Mr. l,estrange until 
she married, when she settled at New Rochelle and from 
thence moved to New York (the City) where she lost by 
death her husband; here she resided when the Narrator 
acquired this information from her on what was then called 
Golden Hill in 1772; her attachment and respect for Mr. 
l,estrange was very warm and strong as appeared from her 
professions and which her advanced age might serve most 
probably to strengthen and contribute more too ; It was such, 
as appeared for when she met with the Narrator and heard 
his name mentioned, and upon inquiry from one of her ac- 
quaintance of the family of the Narrator and found that he 
was a descendant of the family of Mr. l,estrange, she ap- 
peared to be most happy and elated with joy, and made the 
most pressing invitations to the narrator to call upon her, 
at the same time the most warm asusrances of her respect 
and regard for Mr. l,estrange and his family and the Joy 

20 Strang Genealogy 

she possessed at meeting with a descendant of the family. 
This interview occurred in the office of John Jay Esquire 
at the time the Narrator was in his clerkship with him, and 
upon John Jay Esquire's calling the Narrator by name. 

To one other most respectable and antient Lady Mrs. 
Phebe Lee (of the Purdy family) the Narrator is likewise 
indebted for a confirmation of the most of the circumstances 
here related as she had heard them related by Mr. and Mrs. 
l,estrange frequently; and of which and of whom she at the 
time of the relation to the narrator retained the most per- 
fect recollection. 

Gabriel having settled in London and there married had 
by his first wife a son named William. In the year or about 
that of 1754 William came to America and while here made 
several visits to his relations, and spent much time with 
them. He was a Lieutenant in the British Navy and upon 
the station at New York where he remained for nearly two 
years. He had had a liberal education and was esteemed to 
be a young man of good abilities, and was much inclined to 
and had a great propensity for liquor; for this reason his 
father whose aims and intentions were and who had de- 
signed him for the Clerical order and gown, was constrained 
to relinquish such aim and to procure for him a commission 
in the Navy as Lieutenant. While he was upon the Ameri- 
can station he kept up a regular correspondence with the 
families here; and also after his return to England; some of 
his letters are yet to be seen in the possession of Jarod 
(Jared ?) a descendant of one of the families. When he 
left the station of New York, he was from England stationed 
in the East India Seas; from whence there is the last direct 
intelligence from him. His father married a second wife 
but there is no correct information of any family he had by 
her or whether any, nor of the Hubert family, two there 
are of the names in Europe as appears from the Military 
and Naval Calendars in England and France and also from 
the Civil records of both those Countries. 

Strang Manuscript 21 

Not much different of the year 1740 there came to 
America a person who called himself l,estrange from Paris 
in France as he represented and called upon the family in 
the County of Westchester and particularly upon Daniel 
1, estrange who was residing in the Manor of Cortlandt, 
having removed from White Plains. He claimed that he 
was the son of a Mr. Daniel l,estrange and Charlotte 
], estrange and who was left in France with the guards by 
Mrs. l,estrange in the City of Paris when she made her 
escape in the time of the persecution of the Protestants and 
said that he had been brought up in the city of Paris by a 
person, and who claimed to be an acquaintance once of Mr. 
and Mrs. 1, estrange but whose name cannot be called to mind 
by the informant but which he mentioned. The informant 
saw him and heard his relation and claim made; he urged 
many reasons to induce the family to accept of him as a 
descendant of Mr. and Mrs. l,estrange with circumstances 
upon which he founded his claim to be the same person who 
was left when a child and entrusted to the care of the guards. 

Mrs. Phebe Knapp the widow of David Knapp deceased 
is the informant and recollects well the seeing of him, and 
her memory serves her as to all the circumstances and the 
occasion of his visit as he said; she was the daughter of an 
intimate neighbor of the family of l,estrange where he was. 

She says that it was by many persons supposed that it 
was very probable that he was the same person whom he 
claimed to be; however that the family had so much their 
doubts in their minds that they refused to extend to him the 
hand of connection, and as branch of or descendant of the 
family and that he left them and proposed to return to 
France and endeavour to procure the necessary and more 
authentic evidences of his claim. That his visage and coun- 
tenance were generally favorable to his claim and much be- 
spoke it, and that many of the circumstances by him related 
greatly corresponded with those related by Mr. and Mrs. 

22 Strang Genealogy 

l,estrange in their lifetimes and not unknown to the families 
in America and most of their Neighbours. 

However he was not known to return again after he 
left America. In corroboration of this circumstance of his 
coming to America and presenting himself and his claim as 
and for the child which was left by Mrs. l,estrange and de- 
posited to the care of the Guards when she made her escape 
Mrs. Phebe Lee before mentioned as an informant has often 
related the same as received from Mr. and Mrs. l,estrange — 
and there are of the family whose memories serve them well 
to have heard it related by their Ancestors and others, whose 
respectability and veracity must do away all doubts of that 
occurrence and circumstances. 

The Family of Daniel l,estrange and Charlotte had the 
following children viz. 

Daniel — born in England and married to Phebe Purdy 
a daughter of Purdy of Rye. 

Charlotte born at New Rochelle and married to Roger 
Park of the Town of Rye. 

Mary — born at New Rochelle and married to John Budd

Gabriel — born at the Town of Rye and went to France 
and returned to England and settled in London. 

Lucey — born at the Town of Rye, and married to 

Davie, a merchant of Planter from one of the 

West India Islands. 

Daniel l,estrange married Phebe Purdy a daughter of 

Purdy of Rye; he settled at the White Plains upon 

a farm now in the possession of the Gedney family and 
moved from there about the year 1744 to the Manor of 
Cortlandt and settled himself; he procured three farms, one 

Strang Manuscript 23 

known by the Name of the Haff farm and included the lands 
now owned by Doctor Elias Quereau called the saw mill 
farm. One situate on the ridge and where once Benjamin 
Field possessed and One in Stoney Street and where Caleb 
Morgan now lives. He is said to have likewise procured a 
farm for each of his children. The first farm he possessed 
himself and died in the possession of. The Saw Mill (the 
other) he settled his son Daniel upon. The second he settled 
his son Francis upon. The Third he proposed for his son 
Gabriel, but died before he settled thereon. 

He had the following children : 

Daniel — married to Elizabeth Galpin a daughter of 
Joseph Galpin in King Street. 

Francis — married to Elizabeth Hyatt a daughter of 
John Hyatt, Esquire of the Manor of Cortlandt. 

Joseph — married to Jemima Budd a daughter of Joseph 
Budd Esquire of the Manor of Cortlandt. He went into 
the provincial service as called as a Lieutenant in the vear 

John — died while in Colledge at Newark In New Jersey 
as a student in the year 174 — . 

Gabriel — married Hannah Clements a daughter of 
Johanus Clements of the Manor of Cortlandt; afterwards 
in the year 1758 went into the povincial service called as a

Reverend Mr. Samuel Sackett a Presbyterian Minister of 
what is now called Yorktown. 

Henry — married to Margaret a daughter of Thomas 
Hazard of the Island of Nassau. 


1 DANIEL STRANG, born Orleans, France, about 
1661, for in 1698 the inhabitants of New Rochelle were listed 
and his age was given as 37 years. He died Rye, N. Y., 
1706-7; married in France, Charlotte, born 1668, as the above 
mentioned census states her age in 1698 as 30 years; died 
Rye, N. Y., 1722; daughter of Francis and Livinia Hubert, 
according to the majority of records, but where the baptisms 
of her children are recorded in the church Du Saint Esprit, 
New York City, she is said to be Charlotte Le Mestre, so 
perhaps she way have been a widow at the time of her mar- 
riage to Daniel, as there seems to be evidence of her con- 
nection with the Hubert family. 

The will of Daniel "Streing," filed in New York, Liber 
7, page 374, is dated Dec. 16, 1706, and proven Feb. 11 fol- 
lowing, calls himself "Gentleman," resident of the town of 
Rye, and after all debts are paid wills the remainder of his 
estate to his wife Charlotte and makes her sole executrix. 

Witnessed by Oliver Besley, Isaac Merrier, 

Le Conte and Orlando Payne. 

The will of Charlotte "Streing" is recorded in New 
York, Liber 9, page 436, dated Oct. 20, 1722, and proven 
January 31st following. Calls herself a widow and of the 
town of Rye. Leaves her youngest son, Daniel Streing, her 
large Bible and 10 shillings; she leaves 10 shillings also to 
Lusian David and Charlotte David, children of her eldest 
daughter, Lusian Forgee; gives her wedding clothes to her 
three daughters, Clorinda, wife of Samuel Purdy; Charlotte, 
wife of Roger Park, and Mary Prudence, wife of John Budd. 


First Generation 25 

To her grandson, Henry Streing, she gives "all that lot of 
land in the Town of Rye purchased by me from George 
Lane, Sr., with all the buildings thereon, and he is to pay 
30 pounds of my debts." Remains of the estate to be sold 
and the proceeds divided among the children. Executors, 
Capt. Oliver Besley and son-in-law Samuel Purdy. Wit- 
nesses : James Searle, John Davis and John Carhart. 

The fact established by the above will is, that Charlotte 
at the time of the making of her will in 1722 was still in 
possession of her wedding clothes which makes one question 
the traditional escape from Paris, unless they had been pre- 
served and were sent to her later by her son Gabriel.

2 Luisan Strang, called Lucy in the tradition, 
She must have married very young for 
she is not mentioned with the rest of the 
family in the census of 1698 whereby it 
it may be presumed she had a home of 
her own. She married Jean David, who 
is named among the inhabitants of Saint 
Christopher in 1671. He represented 
one of the best families in New Rochelle. 
Before removing to the West Indies, 
three children are recorded as baptised 
in the Church Du Saint Esprit of New 
York City. Jean, born Dec. 23, 1702; 
Daniel, born Dec. 10, 1704, and Petrus, 
born April 23, 1707. In her mother's 
will she is called Forgee and the above 
three children are not mentioned, thus 
suggesting a second marriage.

17, 1696, Church Du Saint Esprit, N. Y. 
City; mentioned as aged two in the cen-

the year 1720, the Regent of France 
made proclamation that upon personal 
application of the refugees, or of their 
personal representatives, their confis- 
cated estates would be restored to them. 
Gabriel was sent to France by his 
mother as her representative and it is 
reported that he secured a goodly share 
of the estate, but that his remittances 
were small. He settled himself with 
Gabriel Hubert, in London, said to be 
his uncle. About 1754 his son William, 
a lieutenant in the British Navy, spent 
much time with relatives here. He had 
been liberally educated and was es- 
teemed a man of good abilities, but he 
had a great propensity for strong drink 
which had occasioned the abandonment 
of the purpose of preparing him for the 
ministry. He was later stationed in the 
West Indies.

tration were granted on estate of Daniel to his son Daniel, 
May 8, 1741. Daniel removed from Rye to White Plains, 
upon a farm acquired by his father as one of the Patentees. 
About 1740 he settled in the Manor of Courtlandt where he 
procured three farms. The Haff farm he occupied himself; 
settled his son Daniel on the Saw Mill farm. The third 
farm was on a ridge north of the town and was once pos- 
sessed by Benjamin Field. Upon this he settled his son 
Francis. He also procured a farm on Stoney St. where 
Caleb Morgan later lived and which tradition says he in- 
tended for his son Gabriel but it was never occupied by him.

years, according to his grave stone in the Presbyterian 
church-yard at Yorktown, N. Y. ; married May 11, 1761, 
Margaret, born 1744, died of cancer of the face March 27, 
1822, aged 78 years; buried by her husband's side; daughter 
of Thomas and Martha (Sackett) Hazard of Long Island. 
According to some members of the family she was the 
daughter of Nathaniel Sackett, btit John Strang (55) must 
have known his grandparents very well and he left the 
written word that she was the daughter of Thomas Hazard. 
Henry Strang lived at Yorktown, N. Y., engaged in farming, 
grazing, tanning and shoemaking. During the Revolution* 
ary War he was made Captain in the 3rd Regiment of West- 
chester Co. under Col. Samuel Drake, before June 25, 1778. 

38 Strang Genealogy 

During that trying period he suffered greatly and was often 
obliged to plow with a gun on his shoulder while Joseph 
Sackett, assisted him, being armed also. For some time 
during the Revolutionary War the homestead of Henry 
Strang was the headquarters of Lafayette. Henry was a 
staunch patriot and rendered efficient service while in the 
regiment of Col. Samuel Drake. The house in which he 
lived stood east of the old homestead of the late Hazard 
Strang. The well is still there and also the flat stone sup- 
posed to have been the door stone. The British raided his 
farm and drove off a herd of cattle, taking with them his son 
Thomas, who was later allowed to return home. 

One day a spy named Palmer took him into the woods, 
pricked him sharply with a bayonet, and threatened him with 
death. After getting his freedom, Capt. Strang gathered 
his men together, surrounded the woods, captured Palmer 
and turned him over to the authorities. 

"Trial of Edward Palmer. July 29, 1777. 

The Prisoner pleads not Guilty. He was charged with 
plundering, Robbing and Carrying off the Cattle, Goods, etc., 
from the well effected inhabitants and for being a Spy from 
the enemy. After several men had testified against him, 
Henry Strang was sworn and said : that he being at a black- 
smith's shop about a fortnight or three weeks ago, the pris- 
oner and one with him came into the shop ; upon the Witness 
attempting to get away the prisoner told him to Stand — and 
the Prisoner and the man with him tied him (the Witness). 

The Witness resisted a little upon their tying him — on 
which Palmer the prisoner, pricked him with a bayonet — the 
Witness then went along with them. After getting about a 
quarter of a mile the Witness desired one Griffen as they 
passed by him to send to his family and acquaint them that 
he was taken — upon which the prisoner told the Witness that 
if he said anything more about it he would Run him through 
and pricked him again with his bayonet. Afterwards as they 

Third Generation 39 

passed by John Tompkin's the Women Hallowed out and 
asked who they had there. Palmer answered, one of the 
Rebel Committee — they proceeded with the witness over 
Croton River into the Woods, that Palmer the present pris- 
oner pricked him ten or twelve times with his Bayonet and 
occasioned him to bleed in many spots. Palmer demanded 
and took the Witness's pocket book from him with between 
fifty and sixty dollars in it, which he returned before the 
Witness came away — that they took the Witness in the 
afternoon and Let him go about Eleven o'clock in the night, 
upon the Witness Promising not to molest or Injure the In- 
habitants about the place that the Witness was taken at ; the 
prisoner said he took him because he was one of the Rebel 
Committee. The prisoner and the other man were both 

Many others testified and Palmer was hung on Gallows 
Hill as a spy." 

During the declining years of Margaret (Hazard) 
Strang she was cared for by her daughter Sarah. She was 
noted for her religious life and took an active part in the 
controversy of the Yorktown Presbyterian Church in 1806 
when Rev. Silas Constant succeeded in dividing the church, 
leaving only seventeen members at the old church, while she 
and Judge Elijah Lee the two most prominent members who 
stood firm to hold the church and grounds while the Con- 
stant party held the parsonage. These parties flourishing 
for many years, finally dwindled down to but one in each 
church, came back to the old Presbyterian faith about 1863. 
Margaret (Hazard) Strang was greatly revered by all her 
children and neighbors. She was very patient in her long 
illness and exhorted all who came to see her to care for their 
soul. She had a brother, Abraham Hazard, who was an 
Alderman of New York City, whose son Charles spent some 
time with his aunt at Yorktown, where he died quite young. 

Martha (Sackett) Hazard died March 1, 1830, in her 

40 Strang Genealogy 

83rd year, and is buried near her daughter Margaret Strang. 
On May 2, 1806, one Margaret Strang was visited by a 
committee from the Yorktown Presbyterian Church to in- 
quire why she had ceased attendance at church and on No- 
vember, the same year, a charge was made against her for 
continually absenting herself from church and the worship 
of God and she was cut off from fellowship with the above 
church. (Diary Rev. Silas Constant.)

First Generation 

SIMON SACKETT, with wife Isabel and their infant 
son Simon, came to America on the ship Lyon, which left 
Bristol, England, Dec. 1, 1630. She did not reach Boston 
until Feb. 5, 1631. About a month previous Governor Win- 
throp had selected a site for a new town, a few miles from 
Boston on the Charles River, and in the spring of 1631 
Winthrop, Dudley and Bradstreet, with six other "principal 
gentlemen," including Simon Sackett, commenced the erec- 
tion of some substantial buildings. The house built by 
Simon Sackett and occupied by him and his family stood on 
the north side of what is now Winthrop Street, in the centre 
of the block, between Brighton and Dunster Street. This 
place was called Newtown, but three years later christened 
Cambridge. Simon Sackett was a potent factor in laying 
out this embryo city, but the exposures of his mid-winter 
voyage had undermined his health and he died October, 1635. 

On the third day of November following his widow was 
granted authority to administer his estate. Her name as 
his widow appears on the Newtown records for the last time 
on Feb. 8, 1636. In June of that year Rev. Hooker's con- 
gregation, having either sold or leased their dwelling, re- 
moved to Connecticut, widow Sackett and her boys forming 
part of the migrating company. 

They located in Hartford, Conn., and she became the 
second wife of William Bloomfield. 


Sackett Family 145 

Second Generation 

SIMON SACKETT, son of Simon and Isabel Sackett, 
was born in England in 1630 and died July 9, 1659. About 
1652 he married Sarah, the daughter of his step-father, 
William Bloomfield. At that time he was located in Spring- 
field, Mass. 

William Bloomfield, born 1604, died 1664, the father 
of Sarah, wife of Simon Sackett, sailed for New England 
in 1634 on the ship Elizabeth, which left Yarmouth in April 
and reached Boston in June. He brought with him his wife 
Sarah, aged 25, and their only child, an infant daughter, 
aged about one year. He removed from Cambridge (then 
Newtown), Mass., to Hartford, Conn., in 1635, and in 1637, 
with Capt. Mason, participated in the campaign against the 
Pequot Indians. In 1638 the records of Newtown, Mass., 
show that he sold to Robert Stedman the house and lot on 
the north side of Winthrop Street, between Dunster and 
Brighton streets, which property, according to Paige's Map 
of Cambridge in 1635, was the Saskett homestead. 

Porter's Map of Hartford in 1640 shows his dwelling 
in the centre of a spacious corner lot near "Little River" on 
road from "Mill to Country." 

The historical catalogue of First Church of Hartford 
records that William Bloomfield and family remained there 
until 1648, when they removed to New London. It is not 
known how long they remained there, but in 1656 were in 
Springfield, Mass., and later at Middleberg, Long Island, 
where for the remainder of his life he was a leading citizen. 
In 1663, when the English towns of New Netherland re- 
belled against the Dutch authority, the civil affairs of Mid- 
dleburg were by choice of the inhabitants placed in charge 
of Wm. Bloomfield and five other trusted citizens.

Third Generation 

JOSEPH SACKETT, son of Simon and Sarah 
(Bloomfield) Sackett, born Feb. 23, 1656, at Springfield, 
Mass.; died Sept. 23, 1719, in Newtown, L. I. After the 
death of his father in 1659, he appears to have been mostly 
with his grandfather Bloomfield. He lived practically all 
his life at Newtown, L. L, and his name frequently appears 
in the list of Road Commissioners, Assessors, Collectors and 
Supervisors of the town. 

The Colonial and Documentary Histories of New York 
show he was commissioned by successive Governors of the 
Colony as Ensign, Lieutenant and Captain of Long Island 
troops. His name also found in lists of recipients of Royal 
Patents or land grants, and of Commissioners selected and 
appointed to adjust town and county boundary disputes. 

He married three times. His first wife was the mother 
of all his children but one. She was Elizabeth, daughter of 
Capt. Richard Betts. His second wife is unknown, living 
but a short time after marriage. His third wife was Mercy, 
widow of Capt. Thomas Betts, brother of his first wife. 

Daniel Whitehead, 1603-1668, the grandfather of 
Mercy, the third wife of Capt. Joseph Sackett, was the 
founder of the Long Island family by that name. He was 
one of the Patentees of Newtown, L. I. He was chosen in 
1668 as a Town Surveyor, and died on his farm at Mespot 
Kills in November of that year. At the time of his death he 
was one of the Chief Magistrates of the town. 

Major Daniel Whitehead, his son, and father of Mercy, 
married Abigail Stephenson, daughter of Thomas, and set- 
tled in Jamaica, L. I. He was a Magistrate, a Member of 
the Colonial Assembly and a trustee of the Parish Church. 
His will, dated Nov. 13, 1703, proved Oct. 30, 1704, disposes 
of land in Jamaica, Hempstead, Oyster Bay, Flushing, 
Orange and Suffolk counties, all in the Colony of New York. 

Sackett Family 147 

Capt. Joseph Sackett married Mercy Whitehead 
(Betts) in 1711, when he was 55 years of age, and had ten 
children, while she was 48 years and had nine children. 
With their son Samuel, born to them in 1712, it made an 
even score. Sixteen of this number married and had chil- 
dren, and among their descendants have been Governors of 
States, Cabinet Officers, Bishops, Authors of note, Judges, 
Generals and Ministers of the United States to the principal 
courts of Europe. 

Capt. Joseph Sackett's will, dated Sept. 20, 1719, and 
probated Dec. 22, 1719, mentions his wife and children, calls 
himself of Newtown, L. I., and leaves his son Samuel, not 
of age, "all my manshon where I now dwell, with all the 
buildings, and the lot of land and garden and orchards, and 
all that land I have of my uncle Daniel Bloomfield, &c." 

Fourth Generation 

REV. SAMUEL SACKETT, son of Capt. Joseph and 
Mercy (Whitehead-Betts) Sackett, born Newtown, L. I., 
March 2, 1712; died June 5, 1784; married Hannah Hazard, 
daughter of Nathaniel and Deborah (Alsop) Hazard. 

In 1735 they removed to Orange Co., N. Y., where both 
families were largely interested in unimproved lands, own- 
ing thousands of acres in what are now the towns of New 
Windsor, Cornwall, Woodbury, Blooming Grove and Mont- 
gomery. The young couple resided during the greater part 
of eight years at the foot of Storm King Mountain, near 
Cornwall, where he labored as a missionary. In 1742 he 
was sent to preach in Westchester Co., the special field 
assigned him being Cortlandt Manor. In 1743 he was in- 
stalled pastor of the Presbyterian Church at Bedford. 
From 1747 to 1749 Crompond (now Yorktown) secured his 
services for half the time. From 1749 to April 11, 1753, he 

148 Strang Genealogy 

labored at Bedford. He was then settled over the church 
at Hanover, where he remained until 1760, when he returned 
to Crompond. In 1765 he was again at Hanover, which be- 
came the scene of his labors until after the commencement 
of the Revolution. A letter written by him to his son 
Nathaniel at Fishkill, N. Y., dated Hanover, Oct. 29, 1776, 
says: "Send us two wagons immediately to help us away 
with some small things before the enemy are upon us." 

During the struggle his position was most trying. His 
daughter Hannah, the wife of Stephen De Lancey, was in 
a noted Tory family ,and his son was in the American army. 
His flock was divided. 

In July, 1779, the meeting house at Crompond was de- 
stroyed by fire kindled by the British cavalry. 

For over a century his grave has been plainly marked 
in the yard adjoining the Presbyterian Church at Yorktown. 

Thomas Hazard, the grandfather of Hannah, wife of 
Rev. Samuel Sackett, came to Boston in 1635. He had two 
wives, both named Martha. In 1652 he became one of the 
first magistrates of Newtown, Long Island. 

Jonathan Hazard, his son, married Hannah Laurenson, 
daughter of James, and resided at Newtown. He served 
under various Governors of the Province, thirteen years as 
a Magistrate, four years as Supervisor, one year as Assessor. 
He died in 1711. 

Nathaniel Hazard, son of Jonathan and Hannah (Lau- 
renson) Hazard; married Deborah Alsop Simpkins, 
daughter of Richard Alsop and wife of Capt. John Simp- 
kins, and they were the parents of the wife of Rev. Samuel

A letter written from Hanover, June 7, 1757, to his 
brother Nathaniel in New York may be of interest as regards 
the business of the times : 

Dear Brother: 

The boat not going off as soon as I expected, I have 
taken some more butter, which I send with the other to you 
with a staff I have made for you. I believe if I had a dozen 
pairs of spectacles they would sell pretty soon. The rum 
goes off briskly. The two pieces of forest cloth, the shallows, 
and especially the two dozen worsted capes seem to stick on 
hand slowly. I shall be glad if you will inform me what 
skins I sent you fetch apiece, and also how much I may 
allow for mink skins, if you can inform yourself handily, 
and also whether I may take sewing thread and at what 
price, and you will oblige, 

Your affectionate brother, 

Joseph Sackett. 

P. S. — The butter I send was all in one large butter 
tub, two small tubs and a pail ; all good, fresh butter except- 
ing that in the great tub, which is middling. I must get you 
to keep a memorandum of what the butter fetches or comes 
to. I must beg one more favor of you, and that is that you 
will send a pair of men's glasses to me by the bearer that 
will about suit yourself, which a certain person desires me 
to send for. I am, in haste, 

Your affectionate brother, 

Joseph Sackett.
