Notes


On the division of his father's lands, he, according to the custom of
gavel kind, then prevalent in Wales, inheireted Cors-y-Gedol as a portion
of his share. He was father of: Llewelyn Ap Cynrik.

He was a very extensive shoe manufacturer, in his native town, for a number of years. On retiring from that buisness, he removed to New Haven, opened a lottery and exchange office, and wa made sherriff's deputy for New Haven County, which office he
held for some time. He finally returned to Wallingford in 1837, and settled on the farm originally owned by his ancestor, Thomas Yale, who settled on it in 1670. The Yales and Wales p.217 [I beleive this is the house at 591 Yale Avenue in Meriden,
still standing and owned by Yale decendants]

Osborn Fitz Gerald (Osbwrn, or Osbern, Wyddel)

As has been stated, Osborn was a son of John Fitz Thomas-Fitz Gerald. Lord of
Decies and Desmond, by his first wife. He left Ireland, his native country,
about the year 1260, and went to Wales, where he obtained extensive
possessions, by grant or marriage, or by both, in Co. Merioneth in North
Wales, including the sire of the present mansion of Cors-y-Gedol.

As we have seen, Osborn's ancestors had formerly lived in Wales and were
closely and highly associated with the national affairs of the principality.
His great-great-great-grandmother Gladys , and his great-great-grandmother
Nesta, were Welsh Pricesses, while his great-grandmother Alice was
granddaughter of the greatest of the Norman lorks.

Also, as we have seen, his great-grandfather, Maurice Fitz Gerald, was the
leader of the first successful Norman invasion of Ireland.

Truly the greatness of his ancestory was all that could be desired and it is
evident that he was no stranger to Wales, or to Welsh affairs, when he
emigrated there from Ireland. He was the ancestor of the Yales in the direct
male line and he was certainly living in Co., Merioneth in 1293, as he was
assessed in that year, in the parish of Llanaber, towards the tax of a
Fifteenth. He had a son; Cynrik ap Osborn.

No decendants.

He was Lord of Decies and Desmond and a Count Palatine in the year 1259.
By virtue of the latter royal position, he created three of his sons by
his second wife Honora, hereditary knights; and thus originated the titles
of the 'White Knight.' the 'Knight of Glyn' and the 'Knight of Kerry.
He was also father of a son by his first wife, who was called, Osborn Fitz
Gerald. This son was also denominated by the Welsh herald, Osborn Wyddel
(Osborn, the Irishman).

No decendants.

Enlisted in the War of 1812, Aug 31, 1814, under command of Elijah Boardman,
26th infantry. Discharged June 16,1815; time expired. Yales and Wales cites
Connecticut men in the Revolution and War of 1812 as authority.

Moved from South Canaan, Ct to Mina, Chautauqua Co., NY on 19 Jun 1827 and
later to Gallatin, Daviess Co., Mo. and then to Albany, Mo.
Served in War of 1812.

The names of Maurice Fitz Gerald is indelibly and prominetly associated with
the Norman conquest of Ireland and he was the patriarch of the Irish
Geraldines and the ancestor of the Dukes of Leinster, Earls of Kildate and
other noble families, representing Itelands most prominent nobility. In 1168,
Dermot MacMurrough, King of Leinster, having been driven from his territory by
Roderick O'Conner, sough aid from the English, and suceeded in enlisting in
his cause Richard de Clare, the second Earl of Pembroke, also called "Richard
Strongbow". Dermont, having concluded his arrangements with Richard, started
on his return to Ireland; it being understood that the latter was to follow as
soon as he could collect his forces. Having reached St. Davids, Wales, on his
return journey, Dermot was kindly received by David Fitz Gerald, the Bishop,
and at the prelate's suggestion, his brother Maurice Fitz Gerald and his half
brother Robert Fitz Stephen, engaged to assist the Irish King with their
forces; and, in May 1169, Maurice and Robert embarked with a small body of
soldiers in two ships. They first captured Wrexford, with which lordship
Maurice was invested, and then they marched forward and took Dublin.

Strongbow did not land in Ireland and join Maurice and Robert until August
1170, thus it will be noted, that to Maurice Fitz Gerald and his half brother
Robert Fitz Stephen, belongs the honor of leading the first of these Norman
expeditions to Ireland, more than a year in advance of Richard de Clare.

In 1171 Maurice and Strongbow, with a force of only 600 men, were beleaguered
in Dublin by 33,000 Irish under Roderick the Irish King, who was also assisted
by a blockading fleet of 30 Manx vessels.

In this desparate emergency, through Maurice's earnest advice and inspiriting
exhortations, the garrison resolved to sally forth and attack the enemy. The
bold exploit was crowned with success; the Irish were completely defeated, and
Roderick made his escape with difficulty.

Maurice Fitz Gerald married Alice, daughter of Arnulf de Montgomery, who was
son of Roger de Montgomery, the greatest of the Norman lords and the foremost
among the Norman leaders, next to William the Conqueror himself.

Maurice died in 1177 at Wrexford and was buried in the Abbey of Grey Friars,
outside the walls of the town.

By his wife Alice he left five sons among whom were: William Fitz Maurice,
Baron of Naas; Gerald Fitz Maurice, Baron of Offaly; Thomas Fitz Maurice,
ancestor of the Earls of Desmond and Decies.

He was an enterprising manufacurer of tinware by which he accumulated a
handsom estate. He frequently represented his native town in the Legislature
of Connecticut; sharing largley in the respect and confidence of his fellow
citizens and died greatly lamented.

daughter of Arnulf de Montgomery, grandaughter of Roger de Montgomery

He was for a number of years Sheriff's Deputy for New Haven County. He
afterwards was a manufacurer of Jappaned tim ware and lamp trimmings in
Meriden, retiring from the buisness in 1858.

He was for many years a succesful manufacurer of tin and brittania ware, in company with his brothers Hiram and Selden, and continued the buisness fter their deaths. From him the town of Yalesville derived its name, he having removed his factory to
its site to secure valuable water privleges. Here he greatly extended his buisness, establishing stores in New York City, Richmond, Va., and other centers. He was the pioneer of the industry which later developed into the great silver plated ware
buisness of Meriden and Wallingford. He served in the State Legislature and other official ositions and was a forceful leader and highly esteemed in the community.

He was a co-partner with his brother Charles in the manufacture and sale of
tin ware and merchandise, at Richmond, Va., until his death.

Made btittanica ware with his brothers.

The principal recorded events of his career are given in connection with the
history of Wales in this work, as he took a prominent part in the Norman
invasion of that principality. Through his wife Nesta, daughter of Rhys ap
Tewdwr, Prince of South Wales, who as we have seen was dramatically abducted
by Owain ab Cadwgan, he came into possession of Carew castle and other
properties in South Wales. He was also for many years the Governor of
Pembroke castle, Pembrokeshire, "Little England beyond Wales," where a colony
of Flemmings settled and under his leadership, successfully resisted the
onslaughts of the Welsh. The Flemings under Gerald's direction fortified
Tenby in Pembrokeshire, building walls of great strength and heighth around
the town and also a strong and magnificent castle. Under his guidance they
also fortified other towns and strongholds in that section of Wales, making
Pembrokeshire, in fact, almost impreganble against the military genius of the
times.

Nesta, the wife of Gerald, was even more famous than he. She was a descendant
through her father Rhys ap Tudor (or Tewdwr), of the long line of kings and
princes who had ruled over Britian and Wales for many centries, and was said
to have been the most beautiful woman of her time, being called the "Helen of
Wales." She was mistress of Henry I., King of England, and her sons by him
were named Fitz Henry. Henry seems to have put her aside, perhaps for
political reasons, for Matilda, the daughter of Malcolm, King of Scottland;
and she then married Gerald de Windsor. Anyway the settlement of affairs
between herself and Henry must have been mutally agreeable, as it is well
known that her husband Gerald, was a staunch friend of the English King for
many years after he married Nesta.

Gerald and Nesta had three sons, namely:

Maurice Fitz Gerald, Lord of Maynooth and heir to his father's estates.
Ancestor of the Dukes of Leinster, Earls of Kildare and other noble families.

William Fitz Gerald. Ancestor of the great noble family of Carew, represented
by the Barons and Knights of Carew; alson of the barons of Gerald, and of the
Fitz Maurice's.

David Fitz Gerald. The Bishop of St. David's, who died in 1176.

They also had a daughter:

Angharad, who married William de Barri and was the mother of Gerald de Barri
(Giaraldus Cambrensis), the noted British historian.

After the death of Gerald de Windsor, Nesta married Stephen the Castellan and
by him was mother of Robert Fitz Stephen, who was associated with his brother,
Maurice Fitz Gerald, in leading the first invasion of Ireland, in the Norman
conquest, in 1169.

Nesta was certainly one of the most noteed women of her time, and she was as
we have stated, the Marernal ancestor of a number of the great families of
England, Ireland, and Wales.

Soldier in War of 1812.

The Helen of Wales
Mistress to Henry I of England

After the death of Gerald de Windsor, Nesta married Stephen the Castellan and
by him was mother of Robert Fitz Stephen, who was associated with his brother,
Maurice Fitz Gerald, in leading the first invasion of Ireland, in the Norman
conquest, in 1169.

Nesta was certainly one of the most noteed women of her time, and she was as
we have stated, the Maternal ancestor of a number of the great families of
England, Ireland, and Wales.

After the Conquest in 1066, he was treated by the Normans as one of their
fellow countrymen, a fact which seems somewhat remarkable, and he was
mentioned in the Doomsday Book as being in possession of his father's estates
in 1078. He was Castellan of Windsor and Warden of the forests in county of
Berks

This fortunate heir put the cope-stone to his prosperity, by marriage with
Gladys, the daughter of Rhiwallon ap Cynfyn, Prince of North Wales, by whom he
was father of three sons, namely:

Gerald Fitz Walter (Gerald de Windsor), the eldest son and successor.

Robert de Windsor, Baron of Eston.

William de Windsor, Ancestor of the Barons of Windsor and Earls of Plymouth,
also of the Marquess of Lansdowne.

He was one of the California pioneers in 1849, and made three trips there
overland from St. Louis. Was for many years the proprieter of a large
carriage manufacuring buisness in Erie, Pa., and was widely and favorabley
known throughout the western part of the state. He always took an active
interest in the welfare of his home city.

Lived at 259 Church Street, Naugatuck, CT

Mr. Yale in early life was a school teacher and his wife was one of his pupils before their marriage. Later he engaged in shoe making in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1852 he went accross the plains to California in the quest of gold, leaving his family at
Farmington, Iowa, and was engaged in the mining north of Sacremento for about thirteen years, returning to his family by way of the Isthmus of Panama in 1865, joning them in December, at Cotton Falls, Kansas, where they had located.

He is supposed to have been a member of the family of Gherardini of Florence,
Italy; and this is seemingly confirmed by the Latin form of the name
"Geraldini," assumed by the decendants; in any event he was a nobleman and
came from Florence. This noble passed over into Normandy and thence into
England, in 1057, where he became so great a favorite of King Edward, the
Confessor, that he excited the jealosy of the Saxon thanes.

His English possessions were enormous and at his death they devolved upon his
son, Walter Fitz Ortho.

years been remodeled into a modern family residence. Mrs. Tolman went with her parents from New York state, to Lee Co. Ill., in 1836. It is stated she is gifted with the power of healing and that many invalids have been cured through her instru
mentality. At their golden wedding she received many tokens of appreciation, bestowed in rememberance of her Worthy acts and in commemoration of the high esteem in which she is held in the community.

Biography of Linus Yale Sr.
Linus Yale, first of Middletown, Conn., and later of Newport, Herkimer County, N. Y., married Chiotilda Hopson, September 27, 1815. She was born May 6, 1797.
To Linus Yale Sr., belongs the honor of being the original inventor of locks to which the name "Yale" was given. His son, Linus Yale Jr., was the actual inventor in later years of the pin tumbler, flat keyed lock, which brought to the name the
universal and world-wide celebrity and made the name Yale synonymous with excellence and high standard in the lock world; but the father was the pioneer in the Yale lock field; he hewed the way, opened the road and led the advance, that eventually
reached to great fame for his family name.
He was born April 27, 1797, in Middletown, Conn. His parents moved to Salisbury, Herkimer Co., N. Y., where be resided with them on a farm for a time. About 1835 he removed to Newport, N. Y., and in 1837 he was granted a patent on threshing machines.
This patent was signed by President Andrew Jackson. Previously, in 1829-1830 he had invented a process for dressing mill stones, by which an unskilled workman could sharpen the grinding surface as well as a skilled mechanic. Later on he invented the
"Yale sawmill head block dog," which mechanically adjusted the log with rapidity and exactness and has never been surpassed; no sawmill was thought to be well equipped without it He disposed of this patent and used the money received for same to build
and equip a factory for the manufacture of locks, which were his chief inventions. He also made numerous inventions besides those mentioned and almost always sold them, to provide funds for the up building of the lock business.
About 1840-1845 he commenced the manufacture of the Yale bank lock, which with its improvements became famous wherever treasures were protected by safes or vaults. About 1847 he brought out the "Yale Magic Bank Lock," and in that year he purchased the
land and water rights where the ruins of the "old Yale lock factory now stand in Newport, and built the stone building which is shown in the plate in this book. He obtained power for his factory from a small stream, by building two dams, which stored
sufficient water to operate the works. A very successful business was conducted at these works for many years. During this later period Mr. Yale associated with himself in the lock business. Mr. Ira L. Cady, who married his daughter Chlotilda Yale, and
for whom he built a home in the upper part of the village, known as "The Cady Place;" the house being of octagonal form and built of stone. It still stands near the old lock factory and is one of the beauties of Newport's architecture. Mr. Ira L. Cady
became prominent as an expert in all work in connection with the construction of safes and vaults, using in his work the Yale locks. Mr. Cady for business reasons, mainly to secure the metropolis in distribution, removed later to New York City,
where he continued in the sale of bank locks and safe work.
Mr. Yale's son Linus, Jr. joined him in the lock business, in 1849, and later became, as set forth in his biography in this volume, the greatest of all men in the art of lock making. The son finally engaged in the lock business on his own account,
and about the year 1855 removed
his business to Philadelphia. Linus Yale Sr., was a sound thinker and of eminently independent judgement, and his opinions on all public questions affecting the community, were greatly respected; and his excellent judgement was especially manifested
in connection with the proposed building of the railroad from Herkimer to Clayton, when his practical judgement was proof the enthusiasm of the hour, and the then impractical project was against abandoned; thus saving the community from a great burden,
which later events proved would have been almost disastrous. He was one of the two directors in this proposed company, appointed from Herkimer county.
Mr. Linus Yale, Sr., died in 1857, and the business at Newport,, was carried on by Messrs. Tyler and Harris, as his successors. In 1861 the plant and business was purchased by Harris brothers, who successfully conducted the business for many years,
after which they disposed of same to a party in Albany, who pursued in the same lines for a time. Recently however, the entire plant, good will, name and etc., have been purchased by parties in the central part of the state and relocated nearer the old
home. During all these changes in ownership, the business never lost its connection with the name "Yale" and perhaps never will. It might be well to state again here, however. that the greatest prominence given to the name of Yale, in connection with
locks, was brought out by the branch of the business founded by the son, Linus Yale, Jr., as set forth in his biography herein.

In my Line (David C. Yale)

Mr. Yale lived [as of 1908] in the house built by Noah Yale in 1761. The house is a large one. It has been modernized in later years with the old fashioned chimney removed in 1888, and Mr. Yale put in new windows and dug a cellar under all of it, and
in 1905 he istalled hot and cold running water, with a water heater, and a water storage tank in the attice being filled from an artesian well filled bby a windmill. This fine old house is an excellent represenative of the substantial residences of
Colonial Days.
Update (1999)- The house is still standing on Yale Avenue in Meriden, CT. It is a state of disrepair, although not quite falling down. It is out of square, and in the early part of this century a hurricane brought down the front wall (it was
repaired).

Immediately after the death of his father, when only ten years old, he went to live with a
farmer by the name of Baldwin, in the town of West Branford (CT?) Where he remained until till
he was thirteen years of age. He then went to New Haven, where his mother was then living, and
after staying there about one year he went to Suffield, Connecticut, to prepare for college, then
known as Suffield Literary Institution, where he remained until his eighteenth year. He then went
to Norwalk, CT, where he lived and taught school till he was twenty-two years of age. In the
meantime he had commenced the study of law, under the instruction of George R. Cowles.
In 1855, Mr. Yale removed to Hartford, CT, to take the position of book-keeper and
cashier at the Sharps Rifle Mfr. Co., and continued to act in that capacity till the early spring of
1857, when he moved to Winona, Minnesota. On the twelfth day of August, 1857, he was
admitted as an attorney in the United States Territorial Court, then sitting in the city of Winona, in
the territory of Minnesota. In the following spring, when only twenty-six years of age, he was
elected city justice, of Winona. In 1859, was elected Probate Judge for the County of Winona, to
fill a vacancy, and in 1860 was elected County Attorney, which office he held for two terms of
two years each. In 1866 he was elected to the office of Senator in the State Legislature, and in
1869 was elected Lieutenant Governor of the state, and in 1871 was elected for another term.
At that time the Legislature met in annual session, so that he presided over the senate for
four consecutive sessions. In 1875 he was elected again as senator from Winona County, for a
term of two years, and again in 1894, was elected Senator for a term of four years, and in 1898
was elected Representative for the term of two years.

Gad Lowery Yale moved with hiss family from South Cannan, CT, to Knox County,
Illinois in 1840 and purchased quite a large tract of land in Lynn Township, Knox Co. The
country there was new at the time, and Chicago, then only a small place, was the favored trading
post, 140 miles distant. A trip to Chicago, with wagons loaded with wheat and hauled by ox
teams, was not an unusual, yet a formidable undertaking in those days; returning with supplies for
the farm and home. The material for a large barn built on the Lynn Township farm, was partly
hauled from Chicago in this manner.
Mr. Yale was an enterprising, energetic, genial and courageous man of unswerving
integrity, and respected by all that knew him. He was an invalid for the last six years of his life,
and died on his Lynn Township farm. Yale School in Lynn Township was named after him.

Mr Yale had a long, successsful and honorable carreer. In early life he resided in Richmond, VA, having charge of his father's buisness in that city. He subsequentally established in Richmond a manufacturing, wholesale and retail buisness on his own account. In the year 1860 he built and occupied one of the largest warehouses in that city. He continued his residence in Richmond during the Civil War, the close of which found him prepared to promptly resume his buisness. In the reconstruction events in Virginia succeeding the war, Mr. Yale was prominent. He became a member of the City Council of Richmond, was appointed by Chief Justice Chase, foreman of the United States District Court of Virginia; was treasurer of the committee which established normal schools in Richmond, in relation to the Peabody fund. Served with the "Committee of Nine" through whose instrumentality the state of Virginia was admitted to complete Federal relations, thhhus escaping the threatened danger from political adventurers, who desired to control the state at that time. Mr. Yale lingered in Virginia long enough to see the old State brought back into the Union. He moved to Wallingford, CT in 1871. The Silver Plate Company of Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co. had been organized. He purchased a considerable amont of the capital stock of the company, and was it's treasurer from 1871 until the early part of of 1887, when he retired from the active buisness life.
His two sons, Charles B. and George S. had charge of the company's store in New York City until latter part of 1886. Mr. Yale was frequently called to serve his townsmen in office. He served in the General Assembly of Connecticut in the years 1874 and 1878. He also represented the Sixth Senatorial District, in the State of Connecticut, in the years 1875, 1883 and 1884, being twice elected to that office; took an active and prominent part of these sessions and was ever ready and effective in the advocacy of all measures he deemed essential to the welfare of the people. He was an effective and eloquent public speaker, and was widely known as a broad minded, sagacious buisnessman.

Thomas was for some years at Madras India,
with his brother Gov. Elihu Yale
and was engaged in trade between China and India, and as stated in Elihu's
biography, the principal cause of the attacks on Elihu, were alleged frauds,
in connection with his trading operation. He seems to have accumulated quite
a fortune and returned to his native land some years in advance of Elihu and
became a merchant in London. Thomas had an interest of L300 in Llwyn Enion,
under his father's will, as has been seen, which would have amounted with
interest, to L535, at the time of his death. This had never been paid to him
and should have passed to the residuary legatee under his will -- the heir
male of his uncle Thomas of New England; but it seems Llwyn Enion and Plas
Grono were claimed absolutely, by the heirs of Elihu and were sold by the,.
It may be that some settlement was made with the heir or heirs, in New
England, but no such record has been discovered.

The will made by Thomas was dated September 29, 1697 and was proved at London,
England January 17, 1698 and disposed of his property as follows. "Thomas
Yale, of London, merchant," directed that after certain bequests, the
remainder was to laid out "in a good purchase" from the income whereof his
mother was to receive an annuity of L50, which his brother Elihu was to have
for life if he survived her. "And my will is further, that my said mother's
part after her death and the death of my said Brother, and my brother's part
after his death, by only received by my Trustee for the use of such persons or
person as are hereafter named. And if it should please God, and Brother Elihu
Yale shoud have no heirs male, by him lawfully begotten, then I do herewith
appoint that the said estate, after the death of my said Mother and Brother,
be annexed to the hereditary estate in the County of Denbigh, for the use of
such said hear and his heirs male forever, and in (de)fault of such his heirs.
The to the use and behoof of the heirs male of my uncle Thomas Yale in New
England and his right heirs forever." One of the two Trustees of this will
was perhaps Rev. Dr. John Evans of London, Bishop of Bangor 1701 and of Meath
1715. Thomas Yale's body was interred at Wrexham church. An interesting
letter written by him is reproduced herewith.

Governer of Connecticut
First Warden of the Fleet (in London)

Governer of Connecticut First Warden of the Fleet (in London)

Born Screwbury, England, 1600; a prominent merchant and politicians of London.
He came to America with Gov. Eaton, and others in 1637, and was made governor
of Conneticut, in 1640, which office he held, each alternate year, until 1654,
and conducted the affairs of the government with great ability and wisdom. On
the death of his brother, he went to England, designing to return to his
family and friends, whom he left behind, but was made first Warden of the
fleet, in place of his deceased brother, and very soon afterwards chosen
Commissioner of the Admiralty and Navy, and finally a member of Parliment.

These unexpected preferments altered his design, and he resolved to send for
his family, and spend the remainder of his days in his native country. Gov.
Hopkins was founder of the Grammer School, at New Haven, Conn. He gave in his
will L1,000 for the support of Grammer Schools in Hartford and New Haven, also
L500 to Harvard College and the Grammer School at Cambridge. He died in
London, in March 1657, aged about 58 years. Mrs. Ann Hopkins, his wife died
December 14th, 1698, aged 83 years, at Plas Grono, near Wrexham, Wales.



Biography of Linus Yale, Jr.
Linus Yale Jr., of Newport, Herkimer Co., N. Y., was married September 14, 1844, to Catharine Brooks, who was horn in 1818, at New Fane, Vermont.
She died March 22, 1900, at Deerfield, Mass.
The greater portion of the honor of making the family name Yale, prominent and well known throughout the world, belongs to two men, Gov. Elihu Yale, for whom Yale University was named, and Linus Yale Jr., the inventor of the "Yale Lock." Previously
numerous inventions had been brought out and perfected by his father, Linus Yale Sr., and himself, pertaining to bank locks; but it was the invention of the separate cylinder, pin tumbler, revolving plug lock, with the small flat~ key, which so
completely revolutionized the lock business of the time, and made the Yale lock so popular and universally known and accepted as the standard. This great invention was made and perfected in 1860 to 1864, and U. S. patents covering same, were issued to
Mr. Yale, January 29, 1861, and June 27, 1865. Proper credit is due his father Linus Yale Sr., for the original inventions, 1840-1847, of the first locks, to which the name "Yale" was given, by an admiring and grateful public; but as indicated, it was
the lock invented later by Linus Yale Jr., with the small flat key, for general service, which obtained and held such world wide popularity, and made the name famous, and synonymous of the highest standard of excellence, wherever locks are used.
Mr. Yale possessed a finely poised artistic and mechanical temperament. He was well educated and in his earlier life, was a portrait painter of much ability, and among his productions in this line, was an excellent oil portrait of his father, which is
possessed by his daughter, Mrs. Madeline Yale Wynne. He nearly always had a pencil in his hand, with which he sketched as he talked; sometimes it would be a sketch of a head or some bit of picturesque scenery, and again of some invention. One evening
in the winter, after his marriage, he sat
drawing, and finally he passed a slip of paper over to his wife saying, "There Kate, on this paper lies our fortune." It was a drawing of the first lock that he Invented.
He was an artist in mechanics, as well as in drawing and painting; that is, he took an artistic pleasure in the perfection of any mechanical process in which be might be engaged. He was never too busy to stop by a workman's bench and show him a better
way to accomplish some delicate mechanical task.
His artistic tendencies were also in evidence in his diversions for pleasure; he was a devoted angler, and his ardor in this sport, seemed to be partly fed by the joy he experienced in making a red or tying a fly, and it has been said by other
votaries of the sport, that to see him cast a fly, gave the same pleasure that comes to one in hearing a violin solo by a master, so fine was his sense of balance, of distance and motion.
He was born at Salisbury, N. Y., April 4, 1821, and after completing his education, began his career as a portrait painter; but his mechanical inclinations induced him about 1849, to join his father in the lock business, at Newport, N. Y. Linus Yale
Sr., was at that time operating a bank lock factory, in the stone building now known as the "Old Yale Lock Factory," the ruins of which are still standing. The earlier efforts of Linus Jr., in this field, were in connection with bank safes and locks,
and were so original and successful, that he came to be recognized as the leading American expert and authority in such matters. As such, lie was employed as consulting engineer, by many of the banks and bankers of the day, to design their more
important safes and locks, and his inventions in this connection were numerous, and involved many diverse types, of most ingenious and complicated construction. The combination lock, as now used, was then unknown, and all of his earlier inventions
related to locks operated by keys; but great security was obtained, by making the "bit" of the key changeable at will and also detachable from the handle, so when the latter was rotated in the lock, the "bit" was detached and carried away from the
keyhole, to a remote part of the lock, and there brought into contact with the tumblers, to set them in position to permit the bolt to move; the continued rotation of the handle, then operating the bolt and returning the "bit" to the key-hole for
removal.
The famous "lock controversy" which arose in England during the "World's Fair" of 1851, when the American, Mr. Hobbs, succeeded in picking the best English bank locks, had its aftermath in similar contest, between American bank lock makers. Being
drawn into this controversy, Mr Yale, first discovered how to pick the celebrated Day & Newell, "Parautoptic Bank Lock," known in England as the "Hobbs" lock, and it has been said he picked it with a pine stick; but soon after-wards he found out how to
pick his own best bank lock, known as the "Double Treasury," and ended, by demonstrating that any lock having a key hole, could be successfully attacked, by one having the necessary skill and implements.
Ultimately he turned his attention to the combination or "dial" lock, which in crude form had been known for centuries, and brought it to such perfection that, before his death it had displaced nearly all other bank locks; and in the many years which
have since elapsed, the "dial" lock has been in universal use in America, for safes and vaults; and although produced in many forms and by numerous makers, it retains to-day, the essential characteristics given it by Linus Yale Jr.
Notwithstanding the great importance and ingenuity of the bank lock inventions, as before stated, the invention of the lock with the small "flat key," in 1860-1864, was the epoch making event of his life. This invention ultimately completely
revolutionized the art of lock making in America, and contributed greatly to place this country in the superior position which it occupies, far in advance of all other countries, in lock making. It consisted of the following essential details of
construction and methods.
1 In placing the key mechanism in a separate "cylinder," inserted in the face of the door, and connected with the bolt case, behind.
2. In combining the ancient Egyptian "pin tumblers," with a revolving "plug" containing the key- way.
3. In combining, with the revolving "plug," a flat key, of convenient form and of uniform size for all sizes and kinds of locks, in place of he round key previously in universal use.
4. In the adoption of a standard of design and workmanship for key locks for general use, equal to that previously employed only in bank locks.
5. In adopting high-class machine tools, to obtain the higher standard of workmanship thus established.
6. In packing each lock in a separate paper box, complete with all necessary trimmings and screws, thus initiating a practice now almost universal.
Prior to these inventions and improvements, the round key locks were in universal use and were of crude and bulky form, affording only indifferent security, and of inferior workmanship.
Although, as has been stated, Linus Yale Jr., began his career in the art of lock making, with his father, he some years later embarked in the business independently, and about the year 1855, moved to Philadelphia, where he was very successful; but
about 1861 or 1862, he again moved, to Shelburne Falls, Mass;, where the locks were manufactured by the firm of Yale & Greenleaf. The chief products at the latter place, were bank locks, however the fiat keyed cylinder lock, with pin tumblers, was
manufactured in a small way.
In the summer of 1868, Mr. Yale and Mr. Henry R. Towne, then of Philadelphia, a thoroughly trained mechanical engineer, who was seeking a permanent business connection, were introduced to each other by a mutual friend, and after some months of
negotiation, a partnership was formed between them, by which Mr. Yale agreed to contribute his existing business, patents and inventive skill, and Mr. Towne agreed to provide additional capital and to organize and manage the manufact uring department.
It can be stated, that, although Mr. Yale's business was chiefly making bank locks, Mr. Towne was attracted by a conviction, which he then formed, that the newly invented "cylinder," was the foundation for a large business, if properly exploited.
This partnership was organized in October 1868, in corporate form, under the name, :'The Yale Lock Manufacturing Company," and was located at Stamford, Conn., thirty-four miles from the City of New York; this point being carefully selected, as
combining the advantages of the skilled labor of New England, with close proximity to the metropolis of the country. A suitable site having been selected and purchased, Mr. Towne went to Stamford, to design and erect the modest factory
building which was proposed. Mr. Yale continuing to conduct the business at Shelburne Falls, pending its removal to the new location.
On December 25, 1868, the newly organized business met with a great misfortune, in the sudden death of Mr. Yale, of heart disease, on 3 that date, in the City of New York, where he had been unexpectedly detained, in consultation over plans for the
vaults of the Equitable Building, then under construction. He was aged 47 years, 8 months and 21 days, at the time of his death.
In 1869, Mr. Towne succeeded to the presidency of the company, and in later years (1883), owing to the enlarged and diversified line of products, the name was changed to, The Yale & Towne Manufacturing Company. The business was removed to the new
factory at Stamford and started up, in March, 1869, with about thirty employees; a salesroom being simultaneously established, at No.1 Barclay St., New York City. At that time bank locks were the chief products, however the new pin- tumbler, cylinder
lock now universally known as the "Yale Lock," was also made in seven varieties. Several new varieties were added in the next few years and the system of "Yale Locks" for U. S. post office lock boxes, was rapidly developed, from a lock box which Mr.
Yale had designed for the post office in Boston, Mass., just previous to his death. The rapid adoption of the Yale Lock Box, in post offices in all parts of the country, helped greatly to call public attention to the merits of the "Yale Lock," with its
diminutive key. The designing and building of complete post office equipment soon became an established department of the business, the line of bank locks was remodeled and enlarged and the growth of the business was such that, one hundred and fifty
people were employed in 1872. In 1873 bronze hardware was added to the business and in this field the company finally became the recognized leader. In 1875, the Weston Differential Pulley Block device, was added to the line, and a little later "cranes"
of all kinds and sizes. These latter lines were developed into extensive proportions, but in 1894, were disposed of, to the Brown Hoisting Machinery Company, of Cleveland, Ohio; the chain block business being retained at Stamford. In 1882, the A. H.
Emery testing machines and heavy scales, were taken up, but this business was also disposed of in 1887, to Wm. Sellers & Co., of Philadelphia, Penn. Returning to the narrative of the lock industry, it is in order to state that, in response to a demand
for a bank lock, unsusceptible to manipulation, the Yale Time Lock was invented, and has since come into almost universal use in the leading banks. In 1878 the business of two smaller competitors, was acquired, The United States Lock Co., and The
American Lock Co., and the production of padlocks was taken up The number of employees had been increased by this time, to about three hundred.
Branch offices had been established in Philadelphia and Boston, and in 1880, one was opened in Chicago. Additions to the Stamford plant were made almost annually, those of 1881 and 1883 being quite important. About 1882, the company began to Cater
extensively to the public demand for artistic, high grade, ornamental hardware, and the artistic treatment of iron for this work, was taken up successfully. In 1891 the number of employees had increased to 900, and a complete line of cabinet and trunk
locks was added to the products. The year 1894 brought the addition of lines of the cheaper and medium grades of builders hardware and locks, which came to be among the most important products. Door checks were added to the lines of products in 1895.
During the years 1900 and 1901, extensive improvements and additions were begun and made for the Stamford Works, and the manufacturing heretofore carried on at Branford, was moved to Stamford. These improvements and consolidations, make the Stamford
Works, the largest and best equipped of the kind in the world, with a capacity for the employment of over 3000 persons, and occupying a tract of over 15 acres of land, with direct rail and salt water connections.
Much credit is due Mr. Henry R. Towne and his associates, for the world wide popularity of the name "Yale" as associated with locks, as it was through their splendid business judgement and indomitable energy, that the great growth of the business was
made possible, after the decease of the inventor.

BIRT: Illigimate son of John WYNN

Doctor David Yale was son of John Yale, who was also sometimes called John
Wynn and sometime John Wynn, of Plas-yn-Ial (Plas-yn-Yale).

John Yale, or Wynn was, as heretofore stated, the father of two sones and one
daughter, namely: First, Thomas Yale, who inherited Plas-yn-Yale, and
continued that line of the family; and second, Jane Yale, who married Joseph
Haynes, D.D. (The mother of Thomas and Jane was Elizabeth Mostyn, daughter of
Thomas Mostyn.) The third was Dr. David Yale and his mother was Agnes Lloyd,
daughter of John Lloyd.

It will be noted here, as well as in the preceding pedigree, that Thomas Yale,
whose descenants continued the line of "Plas-yn-Yale" and Dr. David Yale, the
ancestor of the Yales of Plas Grono, were half brothers, hence the
relationship of the Yales of these two acient estates will be understood.

The father of John Yale (Wynn), was David Lloyd ap Elisse (Ellis) of
Plas-yn-Ial, who was descended from a long line of honorable, illustrious and
noble ancestors, as set forth in the preceeding [pages].

Dr. David Yale was also known as David Lloyd D.C.L., but this is not at all
strange, as at that time surnames in Wales were quite unsettled, and in fact
were first brought into use and handed down from father to son, just about
this time.

He and his half-brother Thomas were the first, after their uncle Thomas Yale,
Chancellor of Matthew Parker, to assume definitely and finally, the surname
"Yale."

Dr. David Yale was one of the great men of his time and country. Mr. Alfred
Neobard Palmer pays the following tribute to him: "a man famous in himself,
and famous in his connections and descendants, not the least of whom was Elihu
Yale, the founder of Yale College in New England."

He was rector of Llandegla (1564-1573), prebendary of Y Faenol in St. Asaph
Cathedral (1578-1624), Prebenary of Chester (1528-xxxx), Chancellor of Chester
(1587-1624), Justice of the Peace (1601-1620) "and of the Quorum" for the
County of Chester (1603). He owned the estate known as Erddig House (now
Erddig Hall) and also Plas Grono and other extensive tracts of land in the
vicinity. In the deeds preserved at Erddig, he is generally called "doctor of
laws" and sometimes "esquire and doctor of laws," and once he is described as
"Chancellor of Chester." Before his acquisition of Erddig, he is generally
described as "of Chester" or "of Tattenhall," Cheshire.

The wife of Dr. David Yale was Frances Lloyd, daughter of John Lloyd ap David
Lloyd of Cevn Amwich, in Lleyn, Carnavonshire, who was of the family of
Griffiths of Cevn Amwich.

[See Dr. John Lloyd D.C.L., father of Frances Lloyd-Yale]

In the will of Dr. Thomas Yale, Chancellor of Canterbury (proved 1 April
1578), the testator mentions his "Kinsman" "Davy Yale" and provides means for
him to "re-edify the house in Yale" leaving him for that purpose "the
reversion of the lease of the Vaynoll." "The Vaynoll" no doubt meant the
prebend of Y Faenol in St. Asaph Catherdal, in which, as is known from other
evidence, Dr. David Yale succeeded Dr. Thomas Yale. Therefore, the "Davy
Yale" of the will was unquestionably, Dr. David Yale. He was also co-executor
of the will.

The Shield of Arms of Yale of Pla-yn-Yale and that of the Arms of Yale of Plas
Grono, differed only in the fact, that the saltire on the former was
engrailed, whil on the latter it was not.

Dr. David Yale was prominent in his time, as the proprietor and landlord of
large estates, as well as in an official capacity. He was in possession of
Old Plas Grono before the year 1590, represented in later years by "plas Grono
farm" in the hamlet of Hafod-y-bwch, in the township of Esclusham below Dyke,
Country of Denbigh. It is not know how long he had owned this estate before
the year 1590, neither is it known when New Plas Grono was built, in the same
hamlet, but nearer the confluence of the two brooks, called "Afon sech" and
Afon goch." The latter was, to avoid confusion, called "Plas Newydd" (New
Hall" and "Ty Cerryg" (Stone House), but finally it was known by the original
name "Plas Grono" or to employ if full form, "Plas Gronowy (Grono's or
Goronwy's Hall).

Made cut nails in a shop which stood near the Meriden Center Congregational
Church. Then made pewter buttons in 1794, and hired several people and was
succesful.
Stone says age 48 (Hale).

Captain Turner to order and appoint the general trainings (with the Governor), 30 March 1645 [NHCR 1:160]. On 23 February 1645/6 it was discussed whether the "military affairs of the town may be comfortably carried on without a captain, or whether it were not convenient to choose a captain instead of Captain Turner, not knowing when he will return. After some debate, Mr. Malbon was chosen captain with liberty to resign his place to Captain Turner at his return [NHCR 1:187].
ESTATE: Gave L10 toward construction of fort, 1634 [MBCR 1:113]. In the New Haven list of estates of about 1643 Captain Turner was credited with seven persons, an estate worth L800, fifty-seven and a half acres in the first division, eleven and a half acres in the neck, forty-three and a half acres of meadow, one hundred seventy-four acres in the second division, and a yearly rate of 3 6s. 6d. [NHCR 1:91]. About 1644/5 Captain Turner was granted the right to choose the location of his second division meadow "that he may the better attend the public service in his military office" [NHCR 1:195].
On 7 December 1647 Mrs. Turner declared to the court that she conceives her husband made a will and left all he had to her dispose, as two of her daughters can testify the same. Rebecka Turner saith, that when her father was to go away, her mother desired him to make a will, but he answered that he would make no will, but he judged her faithful and had found her faithful, therefore left all to her and wished her to be good to the children, and wished the children to bear witness. Abigaile Turner testifyeth the same [NHCR 1:337].

On 7 December 1647 "Mrs. Turner delivered into the court an inventory of the estate left by her deceased husband, Mr. Nathaniel Turner, which was read and delivered to the secretary to be recorded" [NHCR 1:336]. The estate totalled 457 7s. 3d., including 154 in real estate: "the house & lot & land at the town," 44; and "the housing, land & fences at farm," 110 [NHPR 1:15-16].

On 4 September 1649 Mr. Samuel Goodanhousen was called to give security for the portions of his wife's children. He said he had paid Mr. Yale 35, which he accepted in full satisfaction for his wife's portion, and that he had offered Thomas Meekes nineteen acres of land "for the portion of Rebecca Turner, now his wife" [NHCR 1:480]. The matter of the portions of the other children was to be taken up later.

On 13 January 1661/2 a special court was held "for the issuing and settling the business concerning the portions remaining due to some of the children of Captain Nathaniel Turner deceased," which recounted the actions of the court of 5 March 1649/50, when portions were given to Nathaniel, Isaac, Abigail and Hannah Turner. "Nathaniell the eldest son ... being deceased, the court did now judge that it should be divided betwixt his brother & 4 sisters, in equal proportions.... Mr. Yale, Mr. Hudson, & Hannah Turner, resigned their parts to their brother Isaac ..., but Tho[mas] Meekes declared that he expected to receive what was his due out of the estate of his deceased brother-in-law, for the discharge of what was due to Isaac Turner" [NHTR 1:508-09; see also NHTR 1:15].

BIRTH: By about 1601 based on estimated date of marriage.
DEATH: Died at sea in January 1645/6, having sailed in the ill-fated New Haven ship [WJ
2:336-37].
MARRIAGE: By 1626 _____ _____; she married (2) by 1649 Samuel Vangoodenhausen, who showed himself a merciful man in the matter of Rebecca Turner's 1649 fornication case [NHCR 1:471, 480]. She had died by 1662, for on 11 November 1662 Samuel Vangoodenhausen m. (2) at New Haven Elizabeth Parris [NHVR 1:17].
CHILDREN:
1. MARY, b. say 1626; m. by about 1646 Thomas Yale.
2. REBECCA, b. say 1629; with "Thomas Meekes," called before the court 3 July 1649 "to answer to their sinful miscarriage in matter of fornication, with sundry lies added thereto by them both in a gross and heinous manner" [NHCR 1:469-71]; m. by 4 September 1649 Thomas Mix [NHCR 1:480].
3. ABIGAIL, b. say 1631; m. New Haven 2 September 1651 John Hudson [NHVR 1:3].
4. NATHANIEL, b. say 1633; d. without issue by 13 January 1661/2 [NHTR 1:508-09].
5. HANNAH, bp. New Haven 17 November 1639; m. New Haven 5 December 1667 Samuel Hopkins [NHVR 1:26].
6. ISAAC, bp. New Haven 7 June 1640; m. New Haven 19 August 1668 Mary Todd [NHVR 1:26].

COMMENTS: The gap between the request for freemanship in October 1630 and admission in July 1632 may indicate that Turner made a brief trip back to England in 1631. (The record in MBCR 1:94-95 which is apparently dated 6 March 1631/2 is a duplicate of the record correctly dated 6 March 1632/3.)
On 2 September 1640 a difference between Mr. Craine and Captaine Turner was referred to arbiters [NHCR 1:41].
On 4 August 1641 "so far as Captaine Turner hath reference to the civil state and employed therein, provided that his place be supplied in his absence, the Court hath given free liberty to him to go to Delaware Bay for his own advantage and the public good in settling the affairs there" [NHCR 1:57]. Mr. Malbon was chosen to order the watches and all martial affairs in Turner's absence [NHCR 1:70].
On 2 August 1643 the court decided that since Margaret Poore, alias Bedford, now wife to Nicholas Gennings, had run away and gotten married before her time of service to Captain Turner was up, her husband Gennings was to make two-fold restitution to Turner [NHCR 1:105].
On 3 June 1645 John Meggs admitted his error in charging Capt. Turner, Thomas Pell and Thomas Robinson with extortion or sinful unrighteousness [NHCR 1:163]. On 3 December 1645 Turner had a formal disagreement with Mrs. Stolion about cloth [NHCR 1:175].

John Yale was, as has been noted, the eldest son of David Lloyd ap Ellis. He
inherited Plas-yn-Yale from his fater and was the ancestor of the Yale's of
Plas-yn-Yale, and also of the Yale's of Plas Grono. He married first,
Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Mostyn, of Mostyn, co. Flint. By her he had a
son and a daughter, namely: Thomas Yale, who suceeded to Plas-yn-Yale and
continued that line of Yales; and Jane Yale, who married Joseph Haynes.

John Yales was also father of another son, by Agnes, daughter of John Lloyd,
who was named David Lloyd, D.C.L. (Dr. David Yale), who married Frances,
daughter of John Lloyd D.C.L. David Lloyd D.C.L., or Dr David Yale, as he
was called later on, was the acestor of the Yales of Plas Grono and therefore
of the Yales in America.

"Powys Fadog" (vol five note on P 139) is the authority for the above
statements relative to the parentage of David Lloyd D.C.L. (Dr. David Yale)
and of his marriage to Frances daughter of John Lloyd D.C.L.

The matter referred to in "Powys Fadog" was taken from "Cae Cyriog" Mss. and
certainly such authority cannot be questions. There is other ample and
indisputable evidence in "A History of the Country Townships of the Old Parish
of Wrexham, 1903" by Alfred Neobard Palmer, to prove positively that David
Lloyd D.C.L., was no other than Dr. David Yale, and it is not al all strange
that he was first called Lloyd, as surnames were notoriously unsettled in
Wales at that time, as they had been for a long time previously and were for
some years later. The preceeding pedigree shows how unsettled the names were
among his ancestors.

I have gone into the matter of Dr. David Yale's connections at some length, as
the most of the former printed pedigrees of the Yales, do not explain
definitely, if at all, how the Yales of Plas-yn-Yale and the Yales of Plas
Grono were related.

YALE. Welsh: habitation name for someone who lived in the commote of Ial
(near Wrexham in NE Wales), so call from Wial fertile or arable upland.

March 27, 1797 her husband purchased a farm from Moses Phelps for 180 pounds
in Russell, Mass.

He was of Plas-yn-Yale, and married Gwenwhyfar, daughter of Richard Lloyd, of

Thomas Yale, LL. D., Prebendary of St. Asaph, 7 July 1564. Dean of the
Arches, and Chancellor of Bangor. Dr. Yale, who was also Chancellor of
Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury, died 1577.

Hugh Yale, Alerman of Oswstery.

Roger Lloyd ap Ellis, of Brynglas Lloyd, Co Denbigh, called "Mr Ellis," who
was Secretary to ardinal Wolsey, married Katherine, daughter of William ap
Griffith Vychan, Lord of Kymmer-yn-Edeirnion, and a baron of Edeirnion, qui
vixit June, 15 Henry VIII, 1525, and was father of John Wynne ap Roger Lloyd,
of Caedwrig, ancestor of the Lloyds of Plas Einion, Bryn Eglwys. &c.

Augustus Sherrill Whiton, son of Luther and Nancy Cooper Whiton, was born in Binghamton, NY, Dec 25, 1820 and married at Ramapo, NY, 18 March 1843 Caroline, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Dater Ward, one of thirteen children. He was educated at the Ithaca Academy, and became a Civil Engineer. In 1841-5 he was the first assistant to Silas Seymour, who constructed the branch od the Erie Railroad from Gishen to Piermont on the Hudson, the first railroad outlet to the west of New York. After practicing his profession for several years in Kentucky, Ohio, and New York, he became General Superintendent of the Erie Railroad. In 1853 he became the chief engineer of a Kentucky railroad, and later one in Virginia. Removing to New York, he entered the steel and iron rail business and was the agent for several English firms. He was for many years an elder of the Collegiate Reformed (Dutch) Church of New York City, and lived an active Christian life. Personally he was a man of high principle and kindly bearing. He died in New York City Feb 7, 1898 and his wife died Jan 31, 1905. Both are interred in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY. The following is taken from an obituary published in the Christian Intelligencer:
"The pastor of one of the New York City churches has written us in a recent letter, "Many a time in recent years as I have reviewed my own life and recalled those whose character has inspired me, the picture of Mr. Whiton has been recalled to my mind. His balance of judgement was so true, his sympathy so constant, that as I think of him over a space of almost a score of years his likeness is very near the ideal of Christian manhood."
The children of Augustus Sherrill Whiton and his wife, Caroline Ward Whiton were:
1. Julia Whiton, born 11 Feb 1844, married Robert Forsyth Little, Senior on 11 Feb 1869. RFL, Sr was also born on 11 Feb 1844. She died on 18 June 1916. They had three children:
(a) Carrie Whiton Little, born 6 December 1869 and died 24 July 1877
(b) Robert Forsyth Little, Jr., born 14 May 1874, married Janet Heath 7 June 1905, and died at Garden City, LI, 23 July 1923. Their children were: Janet, born 1 Oct 1908, married Arthur Cherouny 25 May 1930 in Paris, France and Robert Forsyth Little, III, born 8 May 1917;
(c) Julia Whiton Little, born 21 May 1876, and married E. Faulkner, M.D., in 1910, and resided at 570 Park Avenue, NYC when the Whiton Family book was published in 1932.
2. Elizabeth Whiton, born 9 May 1846, and died in NYC 19 October 1878.
3. Augustus Ward Whiton, born 13 Dec 1850, married Jennie Madeline Paulmier, died at Augusta, GA on 8 April 1875 from an illness contracted on his wedding trip to Europe. He had one son, Jesse Paulmier Whiton-Stuart.
4. Albert C. Whiton, born 29 June 1860, and died 22 February 1861.
5. Louis Claude, born 29 Dec 1857. He married Harriet Louise Bell, on 10 June 1884 in NYC. She was born 3 March 1865 in NYC, where she died 14 Feb 1923 and is interred in Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn. They had three children:
(a) Angeline Bell, born 13 Dec 1885 in NYC, married 1 Hanbury Watkins 24 April 1905 and had a son named Armitage, who was born 20 Dec 1906 in Newport, NY. She married 2nd Hartley Courtlandt Davis.
(b) Augustus Sherrill Whiton (II)
(c) Louis Claude Whiton, Junior

[dec of griffith yale ap einion.GED]

She was one of 13 children! Source is Whiton Family History compiled by her husband, Augustus Sherrill Whiton, so it is safe to assume that the information is correct and only needs a bit of investigation to expand it.

Thomas Yale was the eldest son of Dr. David Yale D.C.L., Chancellor of
Chester, and lived at Chester, England and at Plas Grono, the family estate
near Wrexham, Wales. He married about the year 1612, Anne Lloyd, daughter of
George Lloyd, Bishop of Chester, 1604-1615, by his wife Anne, daughter of John
Wilkinson of Norwich. Lord Bishop George Lloyd was son of Meredith Lloyd, of
Carnarvonshire, and was born in the year 1560, at Carnarvonshire, Wales. He
received his early education in Wales and was a fellow of Magdalene College,
Cambridge. Was Rector of Heswell-in-Wirral, Cheshire, and divinity reader in
Chester Cathedral. Received appointment of Bishop of Soder and Man, in the
year 1600 and of Chester in 1604, retaining the latter possition until his
death. He also held livings, in addition to his sees. He dies 1 August 1615,
aged fifty-five years and was interred in Chester Cathedral.

It has been claimed that this Thomas Yale was named "David", but the will of
his father, Dr. David Yale, which is given inconnection with his biography, is
positive proof, that the father of David, Ann, and Thomas Yale, who were the
first Yales in America, was named "Thomas". It has also been claimed that
Anne (Ann) his wife, who afterwards became the wife of Theophilus Eaton, was
daughter of Bishop Morton of Chester, but this also is an error; as Bishop
Morton died unmarried; and further there is ample evidence that she was, as
has been stated, daughter of Bishop Lloyd of Chester. J.P. Earwaker, in his
History of East Cheshire, in a note on page thirty-three, states she was a
daughter of Bishop Lloyd of Chester. Also, A.N. Palmer, author of "The Country
Townships of the Old Parish of Wrexham," is quite certain that this statement
of her parentage is correct and states, among other evidence, that Mr. Edward
Meredith Jones of Wrexham, paid a visit to Plas Grono in 1876, while the old
house was being demolished, and made a sketch of the coat of arms painted on
one of the mantlepieces, which he later showed to him. He says the shield
represented a cross saltire, impaling a chevron between three mullets, and
states further, that the coat of arms of the eldest brother of Bishop Lloyd,
was known to be"--Gules, a Chevron between three mullets or,; and that
therefore the coat of arms on the mantlepiece at Plas Grono, was that of
Thomas Yale, who married Anne, eldest daughter of Bishop Lloyd.

In the same cemetery lies the grave of one Reverend Isaac Clinton. This man was pastor of the family church in Southwick, Mass. and moved to Lowville December 2nd 1807. He was Principal of the Lowville Academy and died there March 18th 1841. This man was the namesake for Isaac Clinton Stevens and his grandson Isaac Clinton Stevens, my grandfather. [ljs]



Ehud Stevens and his family migrated from Westfield, Mass. in 1798 to Lowville, New York. He was for many years a merchant in Copenhagen, N.Y.. Was appointed sheriff in 1808 and again in 1820, holding the office, in all, about three years. Records also indicate that he held town offices of Constable & Collector and that of Path Master.

All that is presently known about the early life of the originator of this particular branch of the Sprague Family in America, is that Francis Sprague was born in England about the year 1600, that he was married about 1621, in England, to a woman named Anne _____(?) (born about 1602), that they had at least one child, a daughter named Mercy, who was born in England, and that he, his wife and daughter appear to have been transient residents in London at the time of their departure, in early 1623, from England, to begin a new life in America.
Some sources list the first wife of Francis Sprague as having been named Lydia and have presented Anne as being their daughter. However, an examination of the passenger list of the ship ANNE (William Pierce, Master), which brought them to America in 1623, as well as other public records of the Plymouth Colony where they subsequently lived for several years after their arrival, establish the identities of both his wife and first daughter as having been as listed in the above paragraph. This does not however rule out the possibility that his wife might have been named Lydia Anne or that his daughter's name may have been Mercy Anne.
No records seem to exist presenting the reasons or circumstances which might have prompted Francis Sprague and his family to leave England and embark upon what was to be a new and often perilous life in the colonies. Nor will I attempt to make any assumption regarding those now unknown reasons.
It can however be surmised that those reasons were not purely religious, as were those of many of the others who had chosen to become part of the colonial endeavor in New England. This is made evident by a number of subsequent factors. One indication is the fact that Francis Sprague, rather than having been designated as one of the "Saints" or true Puritans by George F. Wilson in his book SAINTS AND STRANGERS, published 1945 by Reynal and Hitchcock of New York, was instead designated as having been among the so-called "Strangers". These "Strangers" were those who were part of the colony but who did not strictly adhere to the Puritan religious principles.
For even though he had immigrated and settled with the Puritan or Pilgrim company at Plymouth Colony, Soule's descriptive narrative of him in Sprague Memorial makes the following descriptive notation regarding him:
"It appears that grave and sober though he was, he did not wholly escape the displeasure of the scrupulous magistrates of those days. The Court records disclose the fact that he was several times brought before them for what they considered departures from the strict line of duty. A fair interpretation, however, of the evidence, drawn from the Old Colony Records, warrants the conclusion that Francis (Sprague) was a person of ardent temperament and of great independence of mind; in short, that his sympathies with the principles of the Puritan Fathers did not go to the length of Passive acquiescence in all the enactments of their civil code. We know that he was the head of a most honorable and respected family of descendants."
Regardless of their reasons for having done so, Francis Sprague, his wife and daughter left England in early 1623 and arrived at Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts on or about 10 July of that same year, and all three were later designated as having been among the 189 settlers who were to be acknowledged as the "Founding Fathers of America".
In the fall of 1623, Francis Sprague and his family participated in a harvest feast that also turned into a celebration of the marriage of Governor William Bradford to Alice Southworth. This feast, which was attended by the local Indian chief Massasoit and 120 of his people, was the occasion that has since become noted as the first Thanksgiving.
Shortly after arriving at Plymouth Colony, Francis Sprague took part in a division of land among the passengers of the ship ANNE in which he was granted a plot of land that may have been about 100 acres or more.
On 5 November 1623, Francis Sprague took part in what may well have been one of the first "volunteer" fire fighting efforts to have taken place in New England. On that evening a fire broke out in one of the settlement houses that soon spread to and destroyed two or three other houses and threatened to engulf the storehouse where the settlement's winter food supply was being kept. Governor Bradford organized the fire fighting effort and the food stores were saved. It was later discovered that the fire had resulted from a deliberate act of arson.
Sometime around May or June of 1627 Francis Sprague obtained a number of head of cattle in a division of livestock among the colonists. In July of that same year, he entered into an agreement with Governor Bradford regarding the fur trade and was thus well on his way to becoming one of the more well to do and respected citizens of Plymouth Colony.
On 2 January 1632 he was taxed 18 shillings on his land and holdings at Plymouth. Shortly after this, apparently seeking larger and more fertile fields, he and his family moved to the northeast area of what was then known as the "Duxburrow Side" of the bay north of Plymouth Colony. This area has since become the city of Duxbury, Massachusetts.
At Duxburrow they settled on a large grant of land adjoining that of Elder William Brewster, not far from the town meeting house. This land, near what was known as the "Nook", lay along a bay with good meadows, salt marshes and a creek that is still known as Sprague's Creek.
On 17 June 1637 Francis Sprague was admitted as a Freeman of the Massachusetts Colony. Such status, given only to male members of the colony, required the passing of a rigorous examination of the individual's religious views and moral character. There is some indication that may have required formal membership in the church. And finally, it required that the applicant own property valued at no less than 20, though this later requirement was not strictly enforce. That same year he was granted a license to sell liquor in New England and on 1 October he established what has since been recognized as having been one of the first taverns and inns to be operated in New England.
At least four other such establishments are known to have existed in the region about this same time, some perhaps before that of Francis Sprague. James Cole operated a tavern just above Plymouth, and others in the area were either owned or operated by Constant Southworth, Assistant Governor of the colony William Collier and by Isaac Robinson.
All of these establishments faced the same problems, problems which appear to have been purposely directed toward them by the religious minded, colonial authorities. There were officials appointed for the sole purpose of following patrons into such taverns and then monitoring their intake of liquor, individuals who had the authority to force the tavern operator to stop serving any individual or group of persons if, in that official's mind, such persons were beyond what they felt to be the "legal" limits of intoxication. The officials have often been noted as having made extreme nuisances of themselves. In addition, no tobacco could be used in the taverns, no card playing was tolerated nor was dice gaming.
Beyond that, official approval and permission to operate a tavern that served liquor was usually granted only to the most respectable persons, and such approval was seldom given to anyone known to drink to intoxication. Tavern owners were also held responsible for the sobriety of their patrons and could be brought to account equally for the actions of any of their patrons who, when intoxicated, caused some problem.
That Francis Sprague was of such independence of mind as to balk at such official interference with the process of free trade is indicated by the fact that within next year his liquor license was suspended for his "...drinking overmuch and tolerating too much jollity" and was admonished for purposely and knowing serving guests beyond the legal limit. That suspension was lifted though by the end of 1638.
Sometime around this same period of time Francis Sprague became a member of the Duxbury Militia under the leadership of Captain Miles Standish.
In 1640 he obtained more land near Duxbury, along the North River. On 1 April 1644 he deeded a 50 acre tract of land along the South River to William Lawrence, husband of his daughter Mary. This may well have been a wedding present.
In 1645 Francis Sprague became one of the original proprietors of Bridgewater, Massachusetts and also co-purchased, with the Earle family, a large amount of land at the present site of Dartmouth, in what is presently Rhode Island, apparently as the first stage toward the establishment of a settlement at that location. The site was subsequently settled in 1650 and became incorporated as the town of Dartmouth in 1664.
In 1648 and again in 1657 he served as Surveyor of Highways for the area and in 1649 he served as Constable of Duxbury.
On 26 October 1659 he deeded land to his son-in-law Ralph Earle of Rhode Island. This land, given on the occasion of the marriage of Ralph Earle to Dorcas Sprague, daughter of Francis Sprague and Anne _____(?), was apparently a wedding present and may have been some of the land purchased at Dartmouth, considering that the newlyweds almost immediately settled at Dartmouth, Rhode Island after their marriage. Several months after this, in 1660, Francis Sprague's wife Anne _____(?) died in Duxbury.
On 5 June 1666 Francis Sprague's liquor license was again suspended because of a brawling incident in his tavern. This suspension was also temporary, being lifted a short time later.
On 29 October 1669 Francis Sprague's son John entered into co-proprietorship of the family tavern. This may have taken place because of the advancing age of the founder of this family line in America. Following both their deaths in 1676, this inn was owned and operated by John Sprague's son William, who later passed it on to his son Jethro. Its fate after that time is presently unknown.
Francis Sprague is reported to have died in 1676, sometime after March of that year and after the death of his son John. He is reported as having been one of the 10 wealthiest men in New England at the time of his death.



Has also been reported as having possibly been born at Bethnal Green, Middlesex, England. His will was proven 5 June 1667.



Reported to have been married to a man named SELDON prior to her marriage to William Basset.



Occupation listed as Weaver.



The son of Francis and Anne Sprague, John Sprague was born about 1637, probably in Duxbury, Massachusetts. In 1655 he married Ruth Basset whose father, William Basset (born about 1590 in England) had arrived in America in 1621 aboard the ship FORTUNE (Thomas Barton, Master).
John Sprague and his wife Ruth Basset lived in Marshfield, Massachusetts for a number of years before settling at Duxbury around 1668. Shortly after their arrival in Duxbury, he became co-proprietor of his father's tavern in Duxbury and remained such until his death.
John Sprague apparently inherited his father's ardent temperament. Described as a "...spark off the old flint", he is known to have spent several hours in the stocks on at least one occasion for "...highly misdemeaning himself in the house of James Cole of Plymouth near unto or on the evening before the Sabbath Day, in drinking, gaming and uncivil reveling, to the dishonor of God and the offense of the government, by his gaming and the bringing of his mare uncivily into the parlor of James Cole, aforesaid."
It is believed that he was the John Sprague who was a counselor to Sir Edmund Andros, rather than the John Sprague who was the son of William Sprague.
John Sprague was killed in the massacre of Captain Michael Pierce's Company of English Militia during the King Philip's War when, on 26 March 1676, that company of 65 men (supplemented by about 20 friendly Indians) engaged a superior force of hostiles near the Pawtucket River in Rhode Island, about 5 miles north of Providence.
According to Douglas Edward Leach in his history of that war entitled FLINTLOCK AND TOMAHAWK - NEW ENGLAND IN THE KING PHILIP'S WAR, Captain Pierce, having determined that there was a band of hostile Indians located near the Pawtucket River, had prepared his men for battle and had sent a messenger into the nearby town of Providence requesting reinforcements before attacking.
For some reason this messenger, arriving at the time of public worship, chose to wait until after the service had concluded before delivering Captain Pierce's request. When the situation was made known, Captain Andrew Edmunds of the Providence Militia immediately set out with a group of armed men in order to join forces with Pierce's company.
Meanwhile the Plymouth Militia group had unwittingly engaged and become surrounded by an extremely large force of hostile Narrangansett Indians and were overwhelmed. By the time Edmunds and his men arrived, it was too late.
The fact that some 42 of the 55 colonists killed that day were buried at the site of the battle, including that of John Sprague of Duxbury, indicates that there were some survivors, or it may indicate that there were bodies which may not have been recovered.
After the death of her husband, Ruth Basset later married a man named _____(?) Thomas, date unknown.



Member of Capt. Walcott's 9th Co. in 1761 Campaign of French & Indian Wars. Children listed with wife Lydia may not have all been offspring of this marriage. I am missing two pages of the Warren Vincent Sprague study.



Was apparently a civil Engineer. Settled first at Canfield, Ohio about 1803 and then at Tallmadge, Ohio. Prolific writer for the religious papers and was a Calvanist and a follower of Jonathan Edwards.

Annie was a serious family historian and genealogist. Among her papers were: (1) copies of extensive correspondence, (2) the work of professional genealogists she had hired,(3) her membership in the Pilgrim John Howland Society, etc. She was proud of her Mayflower lineage.

A defining aspect of her life was the death of her parents when she and her sister Kate were young teenagers. Two relatives - in different towns - became the guardians of each. She often talked about the several years of harsh treatment in the home of her guardian, Reverend A. A. Salisbury.

Annie thought of herself as being an orphan and therefore somewhat lacking in personal status. She regained some measure of self-esteem through establishing her pedigree through research.

Through the force of her beliefs and personality and the easy going nature of her husband, Kirk, her household was a matirarchy. With all, her husband and sons were devoted to her.



Madine's two daughters, Annie and Kate, received a children's war pension after his death in 1883.



Brother of Hattie Sisson who painted oil seascape in Colby Thompson living room.

He was a resident of Meriden, CT and was connected with the Curtis Family which has been so noticeably prominent in the history of the town during the past century.
He began his buisness career in partnership with a son of Julius Yale, with whom he conducted a grocery buisness for a number of years. He was Postmaster and City Treasurer, and represented the town in the legislature. His death occured suddenly in the Meriden Savings Bank, July 23, 1877, of which he was the treasurerer for 11 years.

Samuel was also a Deacon And Town Clerk for New Haven, Conn.



Daddy was a sandy haired man with freckles. When he was growing up, he was called "Red". He could best be described as laid-back, partly because of temperament, partly because of choice, and partly because of a debilitating emphesema which took his life at age 46.

Talking with Daddy's best friend, Wally Coleman, recently, an old fashioned word came up which also applies. This word is "honorable." After losing his Jewelry/ Diamond Import business on Maiden Lane during the depression, Daddy worked three jobs to pay back everyone to whom he owed money. He was lucky enough to get a job with New Jersey Bell Telephone Company, worked nights as a projectionist at a local Movie Theater and, if there was any spare time, at a Discount Grocery store. Going through an old trunk I found a revolver, a gun permit and an identification card with his picture on it and the words "Special Secret Service" hinting at an extended life of which I know nothing.

He was a lover of dogs, especially his German Shepherd, "Buddy".
Reading was a favorite pasttime, ranging from poetry to his monthly subscription of "Esquire". He also loved to work in his shop in the basement, cutting, carving and engraving. I remember the replica of the Queen Mary he made for me to play with in the bathtub, only it would never stay upright!

We had a secret language between us. The ending was always, "Do you love me?" and the answer, "morthantunkintel" which meant, "more than tongue can tell." I was sure nobody knew what we were saying!




Mother was born into the perfect point of history for her. The period of the "Roaring Twenties" was the ideal showcase for her personality - outrageous, irreverent, dramatic, always the center of attention and always fun.

Although we did a lot of things together during her lifetime, we never really connected, something I always truly mourned. I was too timid for her and she was too overwhelming for me.

Divorced Samuel Andrews to marry Jonathan Dayton



Settled in New Haven and was progenitor of the North Haven and Waterbury, Connecticut branches.



Samuel was christened on February 7, 1624 at Ashford, Kent, England and moved with his family to New Haven around 1641. On May, 1645, he was blamed for the loss of a cow when acting as herdsman but the Court judged it to be "an afflicting providence of God" so he didn't have to pay a fine for sleeping on watch.

In the early 1660's his wife died and he went through a period of non-prosperity and had to apprentice two of his sons and sell most of his land. However, after a move to Setauket, Long Island he purchased a home, was made Constable and then Overseer and was often commissioned to deal with the Indians. Family tradition says that he married Wilhelmina, a Montauk Indian.



Ralph was a shoemaker. In the primitive economy of the Colonies at that period where the majority were farmers, people with trades were welcomed in the pioneer settlements. Ralph went to New Haven where he signed his name "Ralph Dayghton" in the record book of New Haven Planters. He later moved to East Hampton, L.I. and was appointed agent to the Connecticut Colony in 1651 and chosen for Constable October 7, 1651.
Alice died in 1655 and Ralph remarried a rich widow, Mary Haynes.

Ralph and Alice were great, great grandparents of Jonathan Dayton (1760-1824) . At age 26 he was the youngest signer of the U.S. Constitution. He served in the Revolutionary War and the NJ Assembly. He was a member of Congress 1791-1799, Speaker of House of Representatives 1795-1799, U.S. Senator from NJ 1799 - 1805. Dayton, Ohio was named after him.



Alice was the daughter of Robert Goldhatch or Goldwich, a husbandman (farmer) of Ashford, Kent whose will, proved July 19, 1600, named his wife Bennet, eldest son Richard, son William, youngest son Robert, and daughter Alice Goldhatche. Robert Goldhatch had married, apparently for his second wife, at Ashford, April 16, 1585, Bennett Meade or Meede, who survived him. She, whose name is a corruption of Benedicta, was the mother of Alice, and Alice named her elder Tritton child for her.

Alice's father-in-law, Hugh Tritton, married her widowed mother, Bennet, so the first husband of Alice (Daniel Tritton) was her step-brother!







Elbert was born in a buggy taking his mother to the doctor's. He never remembered his father, Hiram, who was killed at the Battle of Winchester, VA in 1864. As as youngster, during the 1870s, his mother placed him on the farm of Frederick Bryon of Watertown. Elbert recounted to the author how he lived in a tiny room near the farmhouse attic, and labored long hours on the farm. Apparently, during this time his mother lived in Thomaston, but she may also have lived with Mr. Bryon. Elbert subsequently worked in several factories in Waterbury, chiefly at the Waterbury Clock Company, where he was a foreman. Apparently Urena saved enough of her Civil War widow's pension funds to purchase with Elbert a large house at 890 North Main St. in Waterbury. She lived there with Elbert and his family until her death. Around 1927, all three surviving sons of Elbert moved to Frost Rd , in Waterbury, where they lived as neighbors. Elbert died in his favorite leather chair at Leslie Coley s house. His Wife Flizabeth died of general debility two years later.


The Rev. John G. Davenport, descendent of the first leader of New Haven Colony wrote the following letter to Elbert after the birth of his grand-daughter Arlene Coley:

"I notice in the papers the announcement of your new dignity and joy! I just want to tell you that I hope you will get as much fun out of it as I have out of my grandfatherly relationship. These little youngsters of the second crop, the "rowan" as Dea. Woodward used to say, are very sweet and precious. In their case it is "love without responsiblity," so far as the grandparents are concerned. May the little girl thrive and prosper and bring all manner of gladness to those who love her.
Congratulate Grandmother Coley, and Great-Grandmother Coley and Great-Great Aunt Beach and all the Uncles and other relatives and accept the very heartiest congratulations for yourself, from

Lovingly yours,

John G. Davenport

Waterbury, Ct., July 9, 1912"








As a youngster, she homesteded in Kansas with her father and step-mother. She always recalled the exciting events on the frontier, much to the amusement of this writer. As a young woman, I believe that she worked in the Seth Thomas clock factory in Thomaston. She was an active supporter of Carrie Nation, although I doubt that she actually demolished bars with an axe! From my childhood memories, I believe that she was too loving, and gentle a person to follow that path.



He enlisted in Co. D, 2nd Conn. Vol. Heavy Artillery on July 25th, 1862. The Regiment was stationed in the fortifications at Washington until the bloody Wilderness Campaign of 1864. Due to severe losses, the Army of the Potomac was reinforced by drawing upon the large heavy artillery regiments around the capital city. The 2nd Conn. Heavy Artillery, now serving as infantry in the famous VI Army Corps, saw their first action on the North Anna River. They were among the few Regiments to pierce the Confederate lines during the slaughter at Cold Harbor, where they lost their Colonel. The replacement Colonel was Ranald McKenzie of later Indian War fame. Later the regiment took part in the siege of Petersburg, and then went with the rest of the VI Corps to take part, under Gen. Sheridan, in the Valley Campaign of 1864. At the subsequent Battle of Winchester, which broke the Confederate Army under Gen. Early, the Second Conn. was instrumental in preventing the Confederates from breaking through the Union lines. They were subsequently cited in reports for gallentry. al. During the latter part of the battle, Col. McKenzie rode on his horse in front of the regiment, daring the Confederates to shoot him. Although this little action undoubtedly impressed his superiors, it caused many casualties in the ranks. As it was later related to his widow, "Hiram was killed while lying between two friends, in a trench, at the battle of Winchester. He rose up to shoot, a ball pierced his head, and he fell back lifeless." " His friends took charge of the body and saw that it was sent back to his home for burial." It was first placed in the old cemetary where the Thomaston City Hall now stands, but was exhumed during the construction, and moved to the new cemetery on a hill overlooking Thomaston.



The following was published in the "Waterbury American," 1912.

"THEY COULD HARDLY BE TOLD APART
As like As Two Peas Were Urena And Irene Schevalier

Now Mrs. Coley and Mrs. Beach, they live at 890 North Main Street and celebrated there, on Friday May 10, the Completion of 74 years of life.
Twins are always interesting. If they look very much alike as they usually do, they delight in the mystification this affords. They may even be deceived themselves, as in the case of Jules and Julian Jordan, the well known singers and composers of Rhode Island, when one, who studied at a summer music school, invited his twin to the closing concert, saw him coming, rushed forward to greet him, and ran up against his own reflection in the glass of the door. If a pair of twins lives to advanced age they are especially interesting to everybody, whether personally acquainted or not. Waterbury has such a pair of twin women at 890 North Main Street, who celebrated, on May 10, the completion of 74 years of life. They are Mrs. Urena Coley and Mrs. Irene Beach; and are two as healthy and happy women as are often met.
Urena and Irene Schevalier, twin daughters of William Schevalier were born in Goshen, May 10, 1838 and spent their early life in that ancient Connecticut hill town. The ambrotype picture of them taken 55 years ago (1857), when they were 19, shows two-clear-eyed, plump, rosy-cheeked young women, awed into unwonted seriousness by the responsibility of sitting for a picture, but comely enough to make havoc with the hearts of the young men of their day and neighborhood; and, if tradition speaks the truth, this is exactly what they did. They were "as like as two peas," as the saying goes, until long after the marriage of each. During childhood they could hardly be told apart, except by their relatives and most intimate friends. Many a young man was deeply chagrined to find that he was talking with Irene when it was Urena he supposed he was addressing-and vice versa-and the sisters had many a sly laugh at such happenings.
Neither sister married until past 20-a somewhat advanced age for matrimony in those days, when even 13 or 14 was not thought too young to take up married life, in some cases, and 17 and 18 -year old brides were common, Doubtless both were enjoying life too much to enter too readily into marital bonds. Irene was the first to succumb to Cupid's arrows; becoming, just after she was 20, the bride of Eben Norton, and going to live in Thomaston, (then Plymouth Hollow.) A year and a half later Urena, too, capitulated, and promised to love, honor and obey Hiram T. Coley, and also removing to the thriving village where the famous Seth Thomas clocks are manufactured.
It was soon after Urena's marriage that the Civil War broke out, and Plymouth Hollow, like its neighbors, was deeply stirred. Patriotic meetings were held at which fiery speeches were made; man after man enlisted, and finally the husbands of the twins decided that duty to their country called them to the front, and they marched away with the Second Heavy Artillery. Urena never saw her husband again, and though Irene's husband returned, it was only to die. Hiram Coley was killed while lying between two friends, in a trench, at the battle of Winchester. He rose up to shoot, a ball pierced his head, and he fell back lifeless. His friends took charge of the body and saw that it was sent back to his home, where, with that of Irene's husband, Eben Norton, who died from disease contracted in the army, which sapped his vitality, it rests in Thomaston's cemetery. (Not true, since Eben is buried in a glacial terrace overlooking the Naugatuck River in Naugatuck, or one of the towns farther south. I found it there during the 1950s.)
Mrs Coley was so affected by the death of her husband that she determined never to marry again, and up to this time has not wavered, although she says she does not know what she may do "when those pictures get put in the papers." Her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Elbert E. Coley, advised the photographer not to make the picture of the twins today too good-looking, saying that the elder Mrs. Coley had been a widow so long that she could not bear the idea of some man falling in love with the picture and marrying her. A few years after the close of the war, Irene married Porter Beach of Thomaston, who died about eight years ago. Mrs. Beach never had any children, but adopted a daughter, now Mrs. Moses Ariel of Thomaston, who is the mother of three children, Miss Edith Ariel of Litchfield and Sherwood and Kingsley Ariel of Thomaston. Mrs Coley has one son, Elbert E. Coley, with whom she and her twin reside at 890 North Main Street; and three grandsons, Elbert Harold Coley, who is married and lives in Tariffville; Howard Coley, a student at Pratt Institute; and Wesley Coley, who attends the Crosby High School
Mrs Coley and Mrs Beach are excellent types of the old school New England women. They are happy and contented, and interested in the things of every day life. Mrs. Beach is especially fond of cats and dogs, having as pets four of the former and one of the latter animals, who are devoted to their mistress. Neither believes in votes for women. They say the idea of a woman voting is too much for them; that the place for woman is at home, and there she should stay. Both are members of the Second Congregational Church."


Published in the "Waterbury American," May 1912:

To be mere twins is somewhat of an honor, but to be twins and seventy-four years old is more than an honor. Such is the case with Mrs. Urene Coley and Mrs. Irene Beach who celebrated their seventy-fourth birthday Friday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Coley, 890 North Main Street. During the day they were the recipients of many post cards, over two hundred being sent and may dozens of carnations. The principle event of the day was the surprize party given in the evening by a number of their relatives and friends. Vocal and instrumental music made the time pass pleasantly and refreshments were served as a finale to the delightful affair. Those present included Mr. and Mrs. George Chapman, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Parsons, Mr. and Mrs. Moses Ariel, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Shepard, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Totten, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Goodrich, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ketchen, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Coley, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Merrillo, Mrs. K. Dikeman, Miss Carrie Dikeman, Miss Madeline Rosa, Mrs. Francis Spring, Miss Hattie Spring, Mrs. Adolf Ruffer, Mrs. John Holmes, Miss May Goodrich, Mrs Ellen Moulthrop, Ivan Adams, Rufus Chapman, Howard Coley and Leslie Coley.




Died June 13, 1888 of Scarlet fever. Father Elbert also contracted the disease, but was nursed back to health by a negro midwife.



Died of Influenza during WWI epidemic. Her family blamed Howard, and he afterwards turned into a religeous zelot.



Leslie Coley saw action in France during WWI, then came home to start a career at Scovill Mfg. Co. in Waterbury.



Served in Army during WWII.



Lived most of life at the old "Coley Homestead" in Thomaston, CT, although his address is variously listed as Fluteville, Plymouth, Plymouth Hollow, Waterbury, Litchfield, and Thomaston. This piece of real estate evidentally changed administrative jurisdiction several times over the years. The old home was still in existence in 1965, with the family carpentry shop across the road. Samuel was the last of our line to carry on the trades of carpentry and farming in the manner of our ancestors. After his death, the old farm was sold since it the soil of this hill country was too depleted to support a family.

Ellen Jane divorced John Zimmerman due to his problems with alcohol, and their children took the Coley name. She married Horace Moulthrop in 1883 or 1884 and had two children by him.



Last name may be "Warner."



Henry's mother divorced his father and he took the Coley name. Worked as teamster, etc. for Blakeslee Co. in Waterbury for 40 years. In later years, he lived over the business of a veternarian, and helped with caring for horses, at 71 Field St. in Waterbury. He was the organizer of a hughe sleigh party for children, sponsored by Blakeslee.



Her family was from Litchfield, CT and settled in Sterling, IL where her mother died of disease around 1858. The next year, her father fell through the ice on Rock River, while crossing to work on the other side. Helen "Nellie" Gutherie returned to Connecticut and was brought up by an aunt and uncle in Hartford, Co.

The Elihu Yale

Elihu Yale was son of David Yale, who came from London, England with his mother and
stepfather, Theophilus Eaton, in 1637, and who was one of the members of the company, headed
by Mr. Eaton and Rev John Davenport, which founded the town and colony of New Haven,
Connecticut, in 1638.
It has been stated by some writers, that Elihu was the son of Thomas Yale of New Haven,
but there is no evidence to support this view, and on the other hand, there is ample, indisputable
evidence, that he was the son of David. The will of David Yale and the entry of Elihu's
admission to Master Dugard's school are sufficient to prove his parentage, and this evidence is
also substantiated by the indirect testimony of Cotton Mather and Mr. Clap, and by the records at
Madras, in which Governor Yale's brother, Thomas, is said to have been a trader between China
and India, and further and most emphatically, by the will of this same Thomas, made September
29, 1697, in which he makes bequests to his "Brother Elihu Yale," and also, with certain
provisions to the "heirs male of my uncle Thomas Yale in New England and his right heirs
forever." As will be noted, Thomas Yale by this will makes it clear that Thomas Yale of New Haven was Elihu Yale's uncle, instead of father. Furthermore, such eminent authorities as Franklin B. Dexter M. A., of Yale University and Alfred Neobard
Palmer, Antiquarian, of Wrexham Wales, as well as other prominent writers, are emphatic in stating that Elihu Yale was the son of David.
Sometime between March 1641 and April 1644, as has been stated in this work, David Yale removed from New Haven to Boston, Mass. His son Elihu was born April 5, 1649, undoubtedly in or near Boston. Some authorities state, on Pemberton square,
Boston. In the year 1652 when Elihu was three years of age, David Yale's family left Boston and went to England, where David had already gone, settling finally in London, where we learn about the arrangements for Elihu's education.

At the time of the execution of King Charles, the master of the well known Merchant
Tailors' School in London, supported by the rich company of that name, was Mr. William
Dugard, a graduate of Cambridge, a good scholar, and withal an excellent printer, who combined
the business of his trade with other duties. He was the chief printer of the first editions of the
Eikon Basilike, attributed to the late king, and in 1650 provoked the Commonwealth authorities
still further by printing an English edition of the Defence Of Ike King, by Salmasius; for this his
mastership was taken away, and he was thrown into prison. Brought to terms by this, and
restored to his office, he also printed Milton's answer to Salmasius; but in 1661 was again
dismissed from his place, though not for political reasons, and started a private school in
Coleman street, in the city, some of the registers of admission to which are still preserved; and
among the entries, under date of September 1, 1662, is the name of "Elihu Yale, 2d son of Mr.
David Yale, merchant, born in New England, 1649." (Notes & Queries, 2d ser., ix, 101.) There
can be no doubt that this was the boy for whom Yale College is named, who, now in the autumn
of 1662, in his fourteenth or fifteenth year, joined Master Dugard's school, in Coleman street; the
same short and narrow street in which still stood (until the great fire four years later) the parish
church of St. Stephen's; memorable to us as the church of which John Davenport was vicar, and
the spiritual parent of the first church of New Haven.

But the training of Elihu Yale by Milton's friend, Master Dugard, was of the briefest; for
death ended Dugard's teaching three months after Elihu's admission.
We bear no more of his school experience; but we know the setting of public events, in
which he grew from boy to man, and that no other equally brief period in London history has
exceeded this in interest and excitement. He was old enough to have seen Cromwell riding in
London streets with his guards; to have joined in silent concourse at his funeral, and in the
shouts of joy at the Restoration. He lived through the agonies of the plague; he saw the
devastation of the great fire. If it pleased him, he may have seen Milton walking in the Park, and
Dryden lounging at Will's coffee- house, he may have heard Jeremy Taylor and Richard Baxter
preaching in London pulpits, and Geo. Fox and Wm. Penn exhorting in Quaker meeting. He saw
the last of an older order of things, like nothing since; and he grew up with the beginnings of
what we may fairly call Modern England.
At the end of the sixteenth century a charter had been granted by Queen Elizabeth to a
Company of London merchants trading with the East Indies, by which they secured a monopoly
of that trade, so far as not possessed by friendly European powers. The Portuguese had already
been established in the Peninsula for a hundred years, and simultaneously with the English, the
Dutch took a hand in the lucrative traffic.
The first English trading house was at Surat, high up on the Western Coast; but this was
not enough; the Eastern side had superior attractions from its offering certain goods, especially
the beautifully dyed or painted calicoes, much in demand not only in Europe, but still] more in
Farther India and the islands to the eastward. But the English attempts to establish a permanent
station on the Coromandel Coast were unsuccessful until in 1639, the same year in which civil
government was set upon the soil of New Haven, a narrow strip of land, six mile long and a
mile in breadth, was purchased of the native ruler of the middle Eastern coast. The shore was
sandy and harbor less; but the close proximity of the flourishing Portuguese city of St. Thomas
augured well for the security of the new settlement, and the further circumstance that the
territory included a small island, about as large as our College Square, fixed the bargain. The
island was at once fortified, and as none but Europeans were allowed to live on it, this became
known as White Town, or from the name given to the fortifications, Fort St. George; while a
Black Town quickly sprang upon the adjacent shore; and both settlements together were known
as Madras.
In its earliest years the population of the Fort was very scanty, perhaps twenty or thirty
servants in the Company, and a small garrison; but before long the neighboring Portuguese city
was broken up by a native assault, and many of the refugees were received in Fort St. George,
and built themselves dwellings there; and with the growth of the Company's trade came an
increasing official population.
At the head of affairs was the agent of the East India Company, styled the Governor of
the settlement and afterwards the President, who was also the commander of the garrison. He
was lodged in a stately mansion in the center of the island, and kept an open table at which all of
the Company's servants were expected to report themselves every day at dinner. Next to him
were a bookkeeper (or treasurer), a warehouse keeper (or custom house inspector), and a
collector of taxes; these with some trusted merchants made up the Council, who decided with
the Governor all matters of business concerning the settlement and its trade, except so far as
orders from home took precedence. Under these were the subordinates, all of whom were lodged
and fed at the Company's expense.
Salaries were notoriously and ludicrously small,-from the Governor's at o100 a year
down to the apprentices' at o5. It was expected that officers and men would indulge in private
ventures of their own in Eastern ports, while nominally promoting the Company's trade. Then,
too, the opportunities for levying extra and illegal taxes on the natives who sold goods to the
Company, were so evident that they may be said to have been expected and connived at; while
the want of the restraints of family life, and the close neighborhood of the black town with its
temptations to the grosser forms of dissipation, made the Fort a poor school of morals for any
new comer, however correct his principles and his life before leaving England.
It was about 1670, when just past his majority, that Elihu Yale emigrated to Madras to
make his fortune as a merchant. The details of his rise there are all wanting; but he probably
began in the lowest grade of the service, as an apprentice, rising from that to the successive
ranks of writer, factor, and merchant. We fix the date of his beginning by his casual mention in a
document in 1691, of twenty years' diligent service in India; but the first notice of him in print is
in describing the solemnity of proclaiming King James II., at Madras in August, 1685. There was
a grand procession of all the chief merchants, English and foreign, great numbers of the
inhabitants of the Gentoo town, with arms and elephants and kettle drums and native music,
besides twelve English trumpets; and in the chief place of honor was a troop commanded and
led by the President, and the rear brought up by Mr. Elihu Yale.* He had the reached, as appears
by the record of the succeeding month, the rank of second member of council, and less than two
years later had become the senior or first member, only subordinate, to the Governor or
President himself.
At this time the Sultan of Golconda, the petty Mohammedan ruler in whose domains the
English fort was situated, was attacked by the great Indian emperor, reigning at Delhi,
Aurung-Zeb, and there was need in the complications which might arise, of firmer qualities in
the Presidency at Madras than the present incumbent, Mr. Gifford, had shown.
Regular promotion was the principle of the service, and accordingly the directors in
London, acting by their Governor, Sir Josiah Child, the eminent writer on finance, sent Out
orders which were received at Madras on the 23d of July, 1687, retiring President Gifford, and appointing Elihu Yale his successor.
Two months later the great Mogul succeeded in conquering the fortress of Golconda, and
became master in consequence of the Northern Carnatic, the province including Madras; and so
it was one of the earliest public duties of our American-born President Yale to proclaim on the
part of Englishmen, the formal ceremonies of submission to the last and one of the greatest of
the great monarchs of India.
The Mogul proved to be dissatisfied with the small rental (about $2000 a year) paid for
the occupancy of the Madras territory, and attempted to extort additional sums; and threats were
heard of his intending to besiege the fort and destroy all the English in his dominions. The
defences were quietly strengthened in consequence, and at the same time conciliatory messages were sent to the Emperor, for which last the President was roundly rebuked by his superiors at home.
In 1689 the accession of William of Orange to the English throne, brought a new
complication. The rule of William meant war with France, and that meant for Madras a collision
between her commerce and the French settlement at Pondicherry, eighty miles down the coast.
But the same event brought the Dutch, who were nearer neighbors on the north, into closer
alliance, and the result of the only naval engagement of importance, which President Yale
superintended, was favorable to the allies.
Meantime the city throve and grew rich. Within the narrow limits of the island,
garrisoned by seven hundred soldiers, were crowded together about one hundred and thirty
houses, containing perhaps three hundred English and many more Portuguese; while within the
bounds of the whole territory was a population reckoned at three hundred thousand souls.
Over this multitude the President, acting with the advice of his council, was absolute; and
even by himself could wield very great power. The old traveler, Dr. Fryer, who visited Madras
about 1675, describes with gusto the Governor's magnificence; his personal guard of three or
four hundred blacks; how he never goes abroad without fifes, drums, trumpets, and a flag; being
carried in gorgeous palankeen, and shaded by an ostrich-feather fan.
But the records show that this splendor had its penalties. Year in and year out, a
succession of mighty quarrels raged between the Governor and his subordinates in the council,
which were relieved perhaps but not quenched, by towering accusations and recriminations.
The prime cause of the attacks on the President appears to have been certain frauds in
trading operations, alleged to have been committed by his brother, Thomas Yale, whose side the
President espoused. There were further charges against the President directly, of arbitrary
government, of neglect of duty, and of using the Company's funds for private speculation.
In answer to such charges, in 1691, he states that he has made honestly during twenty
years of diligent service and trading in India, above 500,000 pagodas, that is some
$900,000,-which in comparison with the ordinary fortunes of the time would be represented,
perhaps, according to our ideas in this century, by three or four millions, or perhaps more.[this was written in 1908] And as salaries were so insignificant, practically the whole of this large amount must have been derived from the profits of private
trade. References in letters from the Company seem to show that they regarded his success in accumulating as something extraordinary and not altogether creditable; and yet, that he was reckoned a public benefactor must be concluded from such a sentence
as this, in a letter of February, 1691, from the Court of Directors: "We desire our President, Mr. Yale, whom God hath blessed with so great an estate in our service, to set on foot another generous charitable work before he leaves India; that is, the
building of a church for the Protestant black people and Portuguese, and the slaves who serve them.
The squabbles in Council were brought, however, to the ears of the Directors, and
accompanied with other charges, especially of losing the trade with Sumatra.
A vote of censure was the final result, and a determination was reached about the
beginning of 1692 to remove Yale from office. It was not, however, until November 23d, in that
year, that the vessel arrived which bore the commission of his successor, and ended his reign of
five years and four months.
The settlement of outstanding accounts between him and the Company dragged through
two or three years, and if one may believe his representations to the home authorities, he was
grievously plundered by arbitrary seizure of his goods, as well as by legal decisions against him,
and was kept a prisoner at the Fort when longing to return to England, with design, as he says,
"to enforce him into despair, or otherwise to bring on him some distemper that may hasten his
death, which not long since by poison was near effected." (Wheeler's Madras, i, 289.)
There are ample replies to these charges from the new President and Council, detailing
their proceedings in conformity to law, but claiming that Yale had bribed the judges where he
could, and that his personal liberty had never been abridged. As to his suggestion of poison they
say:
"They that know him will doubtless conclude with us, either this bold reflection is no
more than the accustomary strains of wicked policy, or a salvo for his own credit against the
common reports of the unusual deaths of several of the Council when he was President; ... if
they had been living to declare, themselves, what others have since their death declared as from
them, some of Mr. Yale's instruments must have been prosecuted, and he would have been put
hard to it to clear his own reputation.''
As to poisoning him:
"There was never a report that ever we heard, of anything that would give him the least
color for such a suggestion since the year 1691, when there was a story told all about the town,
of a rogue that tempted Mrs. Nicks' slave wench to poison her mistress; and because Mrs. Nicks
then lived with Mr. Yale at his garden-house (which she and Mrs. Pavia, with their children,
have and do frequent to the scandal of Christianity among the heathens,) therefore he takes
occasion to suppose the design was against himself and to insinuate that the new President and
Council had a hand in it."
Probably the truth was not all on either side of the controversy; but after this we hear no
more of these charges.
It may be worth while to notice that Yale's successor as President was Nathaniel
Higginson, another American, and a native of Guilford in the old New Haven Colony. He was a
grandson of the Rev. Francis Higginson, first minister at Salem, whose widow after his early
death came to New Haven, probably because she was a sister to Governor Eaton. This may help
to explain how her grandson after graduating at Harvard College and going to England to seek
his fortune, followed Governor Eaton's grandson by marriage, Elihu Yale (who was Nathaniel
Higginson's senior by three or four years), to Madras, and by his help was started in a prosperous
career there. Truth obliges the statement that Higginson has left a cleaner record, both of
official and private life in the Indies, than his fellow-countryman and quasi-kinsman.
There is one other unpleasant story, which so far as is known first appeared in print in
1764, in the second edition of John Harris' Collection of Voyages (i, 917), to this effect -In
comment on the mildness of the penalties usually inflicted in the East India Government, it is
mentioned that President Yale hanged one of his grooms for riding a favorite horse of his
without leave, for two or three days' journey into the country to take the air; but that Yale was
tried on his return to England and heavily fined for the misdemeanor. Later writers enlarge the
account by stating that his return to England was in order to meet his trial for this murder.
The whole implication in the story as first told, is that it was an incident of his presidency; but as this does not appear among the various charges against him at the time and as full seven years elapsed before his return, and as no records of
the trial can be discovered in England, there is some doubt about the evidence. Not that it disagrees with his character; for it is stated that the conclusion of any who study the original documents must be that our hero, if hero at all, was like the
image in Nebuchadnezzar's dream; part of fine gold and part of iron and clay. His surroundings must be his most effective defence for a record of arrogance, cruelty, sensuality, and greed, while in power at Madras.
In 1699, however, at the age of fifty-one, he sailed for England. He found that his father, mother and brothers had died, and one of his first acts was to prove, as sole survivor of the family, the will made many years before.
Soon after his return, he built in London a stately residence, in Queen's Square, Great Ormond street, a little to the east of the present British Museum, the site of which is now probably occupied by a hospital, built in later years.
The Square was a fashionable locality, laid out and built up in the reign of Queen Anne, from whom came the name. Though now buried in the heart of London, it was then, and for at least fifty years later, quite on the outskirts of the city, and the
northern side was left open for the sake of the beautiful landscape, formed by the hills of Highgate and Hampstead, with the intervening fields.
That his was a palatial establishment and filled with works of art and curiosities of great value, appears from the fact that he received as insurance from the Sun Fire Office, in January 1719, on account of a recent fire in this house, the enormous
sum of o4,500
In connection with his return from India the story has been handed down that the first auction ever held in Great Britain was an auction of goods brought home with him and sold in 1700; but though this may have made an epoch in the history of
auctions, it is yet true that the system in its essentials can be traced further back:-see, for instance, Pepys' Diary for 1660 (Nov. 6), for a notice of the sale by inch of candle, a method of auction early in vogue, both on the Continent and in
England.(See, also, Notes sod Queries 5th series. xii. 95.)
It was on May 11, 1711, that Mr. Jeremiah Dummer, the agent at London for the Province of Massachusetts Bay, as later also for the Colony of Connecticut, first mentions in a letter to the Rev. James Pier-pont of New Haven, the principal founder of the
Collegiate School at Saybrook, that "Mr. Yale, formerly Governor of Fort St. George, who has got a prodigious estate," having no son, is sending to Connecticut for a relation to make him his heir; that is, I suppose, to secure the descent of the landed
property in Wales to one of the Yale name. "He told me lately," adds Dummer, "that he intended to bestow a charity upon some college in Oxford, under certain restrictions which he mentioned. But I think he should rather do it to your college, seeing
he is a New England and I think a Connecticut man. If, therefore, when his kinsman comes over, you will write him a proper letter on that subject, I will take care to press it home. (Bacon's Historical Discourses, 189).
Pierpont was not a man to neglect such an opportunity, and no doubt when young David Yale, a boy of fifteen, son of the oldest cousin of the governor, was sent over, in the year 1714, he carried "a proper letter," describing the achievements and
aspirations of the college at Saybrook.
About the same time Dummer was collecting from all his friends a gift of books for the college library, and when these (upwards of seven hundred volumes in all) were received in 1714, between thirty and forty volumes (the most from any single donor
except the collector himself) were marked as given by Governor Yale. The selection, which was presumably his own, is an uncommonly broad one; there are good representatives of theology, history, chronology, polite literature, classics, metaphysics,
natural science, medicine, political science, commerce, agriculture, military science, and architecture, providing we may say, some foundation for every one of the present departments in the university which was then so completely in embryo.
President Clap (Annals, p.23) has stated that another gift of three hundred volumes followed this three years later; but the contemporary records, which appear to be full on this subject, have no trace of it, and there is reason to think that the
statement is a wrong inference of Clap's, from a vote passed in 1717 with reference to other gifts by Dummer.
In October, 1716, a majority of the trustees of the Collegiate School voted to remove it from Saybrook to New Haven, and in the same month instruction was actually begun in temporary quarters here; and a year later the first college house was
raised,-that stupendous architectural monstrosity, which stood till the Revolution in front of the present South College. We may form a good idea of its appearance by imagining a wooden building the length of Durfee College, and of three-quarters its
height, but of only one-half the width, and painted moreover a beautiful cerulean color.
The trustees were utterly without resources to finish so elegant a building; but they had probably begun it with a more or less distinct hope of help from abroad, and in their extremity one good friend of the college, Dr. Cotton Mather, of Boston, was
appealed to, whose powers of persuasion proved equal to the need. On the 14th of January, 1718, he wrote to Governor Yale a remarkable letter, in which he praised skillfully the Governor's well-known charity, and solicits his favor towards the college
at New Haven; with a happy vein of prophecy, linking the two words that had never been joined before, as they now stand linked to all the future. "Sir," said he, "though you have felicities in your family, which, I pray, God continue and multiply, yet
certainly, if what is forming at New Haven might wear the name of YALE COLLEGE, it would be better than a name of sons and daughters. And your munificence might easily obtain for you a commemoration and perpetuation of your valuable name, which would
indeed be much better than an Egyptian pyramid." (Quincy's Hist. Of Harvard University, i, 524).
It is the fashion to sneer at Cotton Mather for his lively imagination and his overweening credulity; but no inspired vision could have given him firmer ground for his faith that was in him. The morsel, the merest fragment of his great possessions,
which the rich man, thoughtlessly perhaps, and possibly grudgingly, cast on the waters, in response to this appeal, has not been lost or scattered. It has brought to his name great honor, and fame more enduring than any possible material structure of
man.
Dummer, meantime, was "endeavoring to get a present from Mr. Yale for finishing the college;" and his interviews, seconded by such letters as Mather's, bore welcome fruit.
On June 11th, 1718, there were shipped from Governor Yale in a vessel bound for Boston, three bales or trunks of valuable goods, to be sold for the benefit of the college; and with these the full-length portrait of King George I., by Kneller, which
still graces the college collection, an escutcheon representing the royal arms, which was destroyed in the Revolution, and a large box of books, -the entire value of the gift being estimated at o800. An invoice of a part of the goods is still
preserved, with its enumeration of "25 pieces of garlix (whatever that may be), 18 pieces of calico, 17 pieces of stuff (that is, worsted goods), 12 pieces I Spanish poplin, 3 pieces plain muslin, 3 pieces camlet, and 2 of black and white silk crape;"
these being set down as worth o130 at prime cost, but bringing in Boston three times that amount. Besides there were other parcels sold unbroken at the same two hundred per cent advance,
making the entire proceeds of the gift, in hard money, o562, 12s. Three years elapsed before the goods were all sold and paid for, but it is probable the money was all swallowed up in meeting the bills for the erection of the new college, which is said
to have cost nearly o1,000. It was a crisis in the history of the institution; for though it is hard to imagine the turn of events if the trustees had not received this help, it seems extremely doubtful if they could have finished their new building at
once; and every delay would have strengthened immensely the faction opposed to the removal to New Haven, which now was conducting a rival college at Wethersfield, and which might very probably, but for this timely contribution, have succeeded in
endowing the rival and choking out the New Haven original.
It is saying little to note that this was by far the largest sum which the college during the first twenty years of its struggling existence had received from any private person. Nor should we judge from our modern notions of large endowments, that
Governor Yale earned his immortality too cheaply. It was really for those times a munificent gift; and the giver remained for a full century, the largest individual donor to college funds; until the receipt of $10,000 in 1837 from the estate of Dr.
Alfred B. Perkins, for the library.
The news of this great gift reached New Haven a few days before the Commencement celebration.
The story of that splendid and long remembered Commencement is no doubt familiar to all who have glanced at the annals of the college. On that bright September morning, in the year 1718, "we were favored and honored," writes the contemporary
chronicler, Tutor Johnson,
"with the presence of his Honor Governor Saltonstall and his lady, and the Honorable Colonel Tailer of Boston, and the Lieutenant Governor and whole Superior Court," also a great number of reverend ministers and a great concourse of spectators. The
trustees, meeting in the new building "first most solemnly" in the sonorous Latin periods still spread upon their records, "named our college by the name of Yale College - upon which the Hon. Col. Tailer," who had been sent over by Queen Anne as
Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts Bay, and who in anticipation of these festivities had made the toilsome journey from Boston, "represented Governor Yale in a speech, expressing his great satisfaction."
At the public exercises in the church, there was a pleasant rivalry in Latin compliments to the absent Maecenas from the salutatory orator of the graduating class (a son of James Pierpont), from one of the Trustees (a grandson of John Davenport), and
most elegantly of all from that superb old Puritan, Governor Saltonstall himself.
And before they separated the Trustees composed a profuse and painful letter of thanks, at which, as Dummer reports in due season, the old gentleman was more than a little pleased, "saving that he expressed at first some kind of concern whether it was
well in him, being a churchman, to promote an Academy of Dissenters. But when he had discoursed the point freely, he appeared convinced that the business of good men is to spread religion and learning among mankind, without being too fondly attached to
particular tenets about which the world never was, nor never will be, agreed. Besides," adds Dummer, "if the discipline of the Church of England be most agreeable to Scripture and primitive practice, there's no better way to make men sensible of it
than by giving them a good learning."
It is surely alike to the honor of the givers and of the recipients that the great benefactors of this College in its first century, Elihu Yale and George Berkeley, were both church

Distinguished Life

David Yale was the eldest son of Thomas Yale of Plas Grono, in Wales, and his wife Anne Lloyd, daughter of Bishop Lloyd, who afterwardss married Mr. Thephilus Eaton of London, England. David was born in 1613. He went with his mother and step-father
to America in 1637 and settled with them at New Haven in 1638. On Janurary 4th, 1640 in a list of personal property possessed by the founders of New Haven, David Yale is said to have had a personal estate valued at L300. The value of his estate was
exceeded only by those of Mr. Eaton and his mother and brother.
David Yale at that time was unmarried, but he probabley married about the year 1641. His wife's first name was Ursula, but her surname has not been learned. He no doubt removed to Boston, Mass. about the year 1641, as there is nothing on record
about him at New Haven, later than March 1641. It seems that he disposed of his landed estate in New Haven to his brother; and at any rate, he must have gone to Boston before May, 1644 as the Boston Registry shows the birth of Elizabeth, "the daughter
of David and Ursula Yale," in May, 1644, and her death in August f the same year.
Mr. Yale was an active and thriving merchant in Boston and AUgust 23, 1645, purchased from Edward Bendall a house and garden, with lands appurtenant, said to be the most splendid in the city, on the site of the present Pemberton Square. He was also
Attorney for the Earl of Warwick in 1646.
Religiously, he recognized and was in sympathy with the established Church of England and therefore was not in accord with the civil and religious ideas of the majority of the colonists and with the local laws. Accordingly, in May, 1646, he was
induced to join with six others, in signing a famous petition to the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay, for the redress of certain alleged grievances, specifically remonstrating at the non-admission to the churches, of those who acknowleged the
established religion of England, and at the non-participation of the inhabitants, who were not members of the colonial church, in the managemnet of civil affairs, as voters and office holders. The authorities of Massachusetts were by no means ready
for such a subversion of the principles of the Church and State, as by them constituted, and the revolutionary petition- espesially offensive for its distinct threat of appeal, to the parlimentary government in Engalnd- was answered not only by a
carefully drawn counter arguement, but also by heavy fines. David Yale paid a fine of L30 (corresponding to at least $600 now) into the public treasury, for his part in the imprudent attempt, perhaps incited by older plotters, to stir up a revolution
in the Puritan colony. Doubtless the fact of his being out of harmony with the religious and political affairs existing in the colonies, had much to do with his determination later, to return to his native land. On July 5, 1651, he executed a power
of attorney to Captain Thomas Clark and Captain Thomas Lake, to dispose of his Boston Estate and he likely left for England soon afterwards; but his family did not go until 1652. He never returned to America to reside, but was in New Engalnd on a
visit in the summer of 1659. His agents sold the Boston property for him September 8, 1653.
On his return to England Mr. Yale became a merchant in London, where he remained, certainly until July 5th, 1665, during the great plague, as at that time he made his will; evidently believing that he was near to death. In this will he describes
himself as "of the Parish of Cripplegate, Merchant," and as "subject to distempers and sickness." He makes provision for his wife Ursula; for his sons, David, Elihu, Theophilus and Thomas, and for his distressed sister, Mrs. Ann Hopkins. The eldest
son, David, was to have the family estate in Denbighshire, (Plas Grono). The "lately purchased house and lands called Llynigmon (Llwyn Enion)" bought by him from Mr. Hugh Sontley, "with two tenements thereunto belonging, lying in the parish of
Wrixam;" for the provision of portions of L300 each, for his three younger sons Elihu, Theophilus and Thomas, on their attaining the age of twenty-one, over and above what would come to them from his personal estate. The eldest son is also to have
reversion to the lands in Derbyshire, which he held in trust for the support of his distresed sister, Mrs. Ann Hopkins.
David Yale did not die of the "distempers and sickness" to which he states he was subject in 1665, but lived twenty-five years longer. He soon removed however from London to Plas Grono, the family estate, near Wrexham, Wales, as he, as well as his
son David, were certainly settled there in September, 1667, for Mr. A. N. Palmer states he has seen both their signatures on a local deed of that date.
Plas Grono was inheirated by david from his ancestors, but Llwyn enion, as the tax returns of 1670 state the former contained eight hearths, while the later had five.
Llwyn Enion (Enion's Grove), remianed as a part of the Plas Grono estate, until sold by the heirs of Gov. Elihu Yale in 1728.
David Yale was one of the Church Wardens of Wrexham 1673-1674, and he no doubt continued to reside at Plas Grono untill his death, January 14, 1690, aged 74 years. His wife Ursula died February 7, 1698, aged 74 years. A tablet in the parish church
at Wrexham gives these dates and also the dates of their sons David and Thomas and Mr. Yale's sister, :Anna" Hopkins, the wife of Governor Hopkins. The Yales and Wales pp. 96-98.

He was a farmer and later a traveling salesman for twelve years visiting 38 states in the Union. He was a private in Company F, 51st MO volunteer Infantry in the Union Army in the Civil War.

He left no decendants.
