On hearing the name of the owmer, and that he was what they called a rebel,
and also that he had a brother who was a captain in the 'rebel' army, and a near
relative who was in command of an armed brig holding a letter of marque and
cruising against British commerce, they gave orders to visit the house. Captain
Rice, desirous of saving his friend's property, interceded, saying that the family
had been gone from town for some time, and that the house was shut up, where-
upon the order was countermanded and the house escaped visitation. On the
return of Mr. Trowbridge and family, after an absence of two days, everything
was found undisturbed, even to the bread in the oven."J

daughter of Ezekiel:}: and Mary (Hemingway) Hayes, born July 3, 1791, in New
Haven; died August 30, 1857, in New Haven.

Eoswell Trowbridge was a shipmaster and merchant, being in partnership with
his brothers Isaac and Richard in New Haven, Conn., the firm being known as
Isaac Trowbridge & Co. He was elected a member of Hiram Lodge, No. 1, F.
and A. M., of New Haven, in 1811.

"While pursuing his vocation as captain during the War of 1812, on a voyage
from New Haven to St. Bartholomew, then a neutral port, in the West Indies,
some four days after sailing from New Haven, he was captured by a British
vessel of war, on board of which was the admiral of the fleet. Captain Trow-
bridge was ordered on board of the frigate with his papers. His vessel was laden
with a general assortment of American produce and a deck load of oxen and
sheep. The admiral, on ascertaining Captain Trowbridge's name, claimed that
he was a British subject, but, on being assured that he was born in America, he
did not press his claim in that respect; but from the fact of his name being the
same as that of the old adnural,§ with whom he had formerly sailed and fought
under, he treated him very kindly, and although he would have been justified in
making his vessel and cargo a lawful prize, he paid him liberally for all his
stock and what produce he took, which he transferred to his own ship; and
when Captain Trowbridge, finally, separated from him, sent a boat loaded with
delicacies and many things valuable as a token of his respect. Captain Trow-
bridge immediately sailed for New Haven, where he arrived in eight days after
leaving the post, to the surprise of his friends, they supposing he had lost every-
thing by capture.

"Captain Trowbridge was a universal favorite with all who made his acquain-
tance at home or abroad. In his long experience as a sea-faring man many
incidents occurred which are interesting to his friends. At one time he had
safely arrived with a valuable cargo at Guadaloupe. On the night of his arrival
a violent hurricane arose, wliich destroyed a large portion of the town and drove
every vessel to sea or on to the shore, and there was a great loss of life among the
seamen. Anticipating the gale, he had jiut to sea, but soon after his vessel was
capsized, and for a long time remained thus, but finally righted with the loss of
her masts and most of her rigging and spars. After the gale abated he dis-
covered that he was near St. Domingo, which he soon after reached. For

months he had to remain there, without being able to communicate with his
friends. Nearly all of his crew, wliieh had escaped death by the gale, died of
yellow fever, but Captain Trowbridge by his skill and perseverance made new
masts, and so fitted up his vessel as to enable him to sail for New Haven, where
he arrived, after six months' absence, and his return was a cause of great rejoic-
ing to his friends and family, as he was supposed to have been lost in the
hurricane."*
