RIDDELLS OF SOMERSET COUNTY, NEW JERSEY.

[Scottish Branch.]

[There are many reasons for believing that the early Riddells of New
Jersey, whose genealogy will be herewith given, were descended from the
ancient family in Roxburghshire, Scotland. Sir Walter Riddell succeeded
as second baronet of that family in 1636; he married a very pious and
accomplished woman, Janet Rigg, by whom he had Jive sons who seem to
have inherited their mother's religious zeal and creed. The eldest son,
Sir John, succeeded as third baronet in 1669, and being a devoted Cove-
nanter, refused to take the test-oath in 1683; he was consequently imprisoned
at Bonjedworth. The Rev. Archibald Riddell, third son of Sir Walter,
was imprisoned for several years in Scotland (see " Riddells of Granton "),
and subsequently, in 1684, was banished to New Jersey, where he was
settled several years contemporary with other members of the Riddell
family, as will hereafter appear. William Riddell, another son of Sir
Walter, became head of that branch of the family in Scotland denom-
inated "of Glen-Riddell," in Dumfrieshire. We have now disposed of
three of the five sons, and h'nd two of which we have no particulars in
the pedigree of the baronial family. It was a custom in this branch of the
Scottish Riddell family to carry forward the names John, William, and
Wtlter, from generation to generation ; names peculiar to the Riddells
for centuries, .and we might reasonably look for a Walter with the Wil-
liam and John* in this family. Was there such a son? It is stated by
one authority that Sir Walter Riddell had "several sons who suffered

* " Sir John Riddell, brother of the Rev. Archibald Riddell, cousin to^George
ScotUwas a passenger in the 'Henry and Francis.' Now Woodrow, in his list of
passengers on this vessel bound for New Jersey, mentions Rev. Archibald Riddell,
but does not mention George Scott or Sir John Riddell." This extract purported
to be taken from a work written by Rev. Archibald Riddell, entitled " The Model of
the Government of East New Jersey in America," — a work of merit, of which there
are but few copies' in existence.

great persecution " for their sincere devotion to the Presbyterian Church ;
two of these are particularly mentioned in history, and judging from the
clannish spirit of the old Scottish families, we may believe that all members
of this noted sept would adhere to that faith so carefully taught by their
devotedly pious mother. We shall now call the reader's attention to the
records of New Jersey, of dates contemporary with the settlement and
residence of Rev. Archibald Riddell in that colony.

In an account of disbursements by the Proprietors of East New Jersey
in 1683, it is stated that " Walter Riddell p'd Barclay £1,000. Interest for
twelve years, £1. 14. 0." This Walter Riddell was one of the proprietors
to George Willocks, in an indenture made in 1697. He was a prominent
man in the colony, and his name frequently occurs on the records with
other early proprietors. He was an educated and accomplished man, and
had a seal or coat-of-arms with which he stamped colonial documents; im-
pressions from which, if extant, would undoubtedly prove his connection
with the Scottish border family. He and Rev. Archibald Riddell lived
within three miles of each other at one time ; the former at Perth Am-
boy, and the latter at Woodbridge. Walter Riddell was a member of a
committee ' ; empowered by the Society, or reputed Company of New
Jersev, to transact all the affairs of said Society,''' in 1697. He was de-
ceased in 1743, as his heirs and assignees had a survey of one hundred
acres of land, "beginning at the Second Mountain," Nov. 30th of that
year.]

William Riddell (1) was a member of the " Councel of Proprietors of ye
Western Division of ye Province of New Jersey," and was summoned
by Lord Cornbury, Nov. 5, 1703, to show his authority (with his colleagues)
for purchasing of lands from the Indians. This man's name appears in
many of the colonial documents, almost always in connection with some
public duty ; he being, as his official responsibility shows, a person of ability
and trustworthiness.

Hugh Riddell was a resident of New Jersey, May 12, 1685, as his
goods were seized by the Custom-house officer in New York, while com-
ing from there ; Riddell beat the official most severely, and was fined
heavily. He presented a petition against the extortionate charges of the
physicians who attended the wounded man, but the court ordered that
his goods should not be restored until he paid the medical charges.

The Riddells of Perth Amboy removed to Somerset County, N. J., in
1720, • and settled at Roysfield, Boundbrook, and Somerville, where they
owned extensive lands. In the Proprietors' Records the term " at Rid-
dle's, 500 acres," appears.

It would be interesting to know the exact connections of the early gen-
erations of the Riddells of New Jersey, but no records are known that
can furnish the proof. From the fact that the names in this family and
the baronial family of Scotland correspond, with the residence of the
several Riddells in the same neighborhood, some of whom are known to
be of the border house of Riddell, of Roxburghshire, at contemporary
dates, supplemented by the possession of a seal, and the traditions of the
families, leaves but little doubt that the Riddells of Virginia and Ohio,
descended from the Boundbrook branch, are derived from an ancestrv
identified with Scottish history at a very remote period.

William Riddell" (2), presumed to be a son of Walter Riddell, above
mentioned, was born about 1696; went to sea when a young man, and was
never heard from.



BIDDELLS OF SOMERSET COUNTY, NEW JERSEY. 299

John Riddell 2 (1), a brother of William 2 (2), was born in New Jer-
sey (?) about 1698; married Molly, daughter of William Anderson,* and
settled as farmer on the Raritan River, near New Brunswick, in the north-
western section of the State. He was probably married twice, as may
appear from the following extract from the records, which I cannot apply
to any other member of the New Jersey family: "Lisence of marriage
on the eleventh day of May, A. D. 1741, was granted by his Excellency,
Lewis Morris, Esqr., Governor, unto John Riddell, of Princeton, in the
County of Somersett, merchant, of the one party, and Rachel Stockton, of
the County aforesaid, widow, of the other party." Mr. Riddell was killed
by being thrown from his carriage while his horses were running away, in
1773. He had two children (possibly others), of whom hereafter.

THIRD GENERATION.

William Riddle 3 (3), eldest son of John- (1), was born in Bound-
brook, N. J., Sept. 1, 1751. He left there at the age of eighteen, and
settled in Fauquier County, Va., where he continued during life. He mar-
ried Jemima Latham, in March, 1793. Mr. Riddle enlisted in the army of
the Revolution, Oct. 1, 1775, under Capt. William Picketts, of Fauquier
County, as drummer in the regiment of Col. Thomas Marshall. He re-
enlisted under Capt. Turner Marshall, in Colonel Churchill's regiment.
He was on a tour under Captain Helm and Col. Elias Edmonds; was at
the siege of York, Va., October, 1781. One tour commenced Nov. 1, 1780,
and ended May, 1781 ; another tour commenced Sept. 1, 1781, and ended
in November, 1781, after marching to Williamsburgh and Richmond. He
died between March 4 and Sept. 4, 1839; his widow died in 1870, aged about
91 years. It is presumed that Mr. Riddle had a family, and it is quite
probable, that some of the branches represented in this book, several of
which were from Virginia, are his descendants ; but in the absence of
good authority I cannot make connections.

Molly Riddle 3 (1), only daughter of John 2 (1), was born in New Jer-
sey; married to Casterline, of New York State, where he died. She

was the mother of one son and two daughters, some of whose descendants
are in northern Ohio. She was buried at Boundbrook.

Col. John Riddle 3 (2), second son of John 2 (1), was born on the banks
of the Raritan River, in New Jersey, Dec. 4, 1761, and married five wives,
as follows: First, in 1783, to Phebe Schmocke, of 'New Jersey; she was
born in 1763, and died in Hamilton County, O., Sept. 9, 1792, leaving
three children, of whom hereafter.. He married, secondly, July 8, 1794,
Mary James, who was born 1774, and died in Hamilton County, O., Sept.
9, 1800, leaving two children, of whom hereafter. He married, thirdly,
in 1801, Nancy Nutt, of New Jersey, who was born Jan. 17, 1784, and
died Sept. 10, 1810, leaving four children, of whom hereafter. He mar-
ried, fourthly, Feb. 23, 1811, Jane Marshall, who was born March 14, 1789,

* The Andersons, descended from an ancient family in Scotland, went from the
north of Ireland to Liverpool, Eng., where they acquired wealth by merchandizing ;
they came to New Jersey about 1750, and their descendants have frequently inter-
married with the Ridclells and Riddles. William and Martha Anderson had eight
children, of whom Sarah and Willie died young, the latter on shipboard, and the
mother, contrary to custom, was allowed to bring his body on shore for burial.
Hannah was married to Michael Schooley ; Priscilla, to Matthew Cunningham;
Elizabeth, to William McDowell; Martha, to John Ross; and Peggy, to Alexander
Kirkpatrick, who, with several others before mentioned, were of Scottish families.
