EARLY SETTLERS OF WEST FARMS, WESTCHESTER

COUNTY, N. Y.



Copied from the manuscript record of the late Rev. Theodore A. Leggett

by A. Hatfield, Jr.



(Continued from Vol. XLVII, p. 88. of the Rf.cokd.)

Note.

The numerous omission of dates and lack of information that will be found
in the text of the genealogy is largely due to the limited time in which these
records were prepared. If the various members of the Leggett family or
other interested parties will forward such missing data to the compiler, care of
the N. Y. Gen. and Uiog Society. 226 W. 58th .St., New York, it will be greatly
appreciated, as the object of the hasty publication of this genealogy was
primarily for the securing of such information, and not as a complete genealogy.

The numerous corrections are due partly to the difificult chirography of
the Rev. Theodore A. Leggett, and partly to the fact that it was not until the



1 86 Early Settlers of West Farms, Westchester County, N. Y. [April

record had been printed that the accuracy of the manuscript was questioned,
and a careful checking and verification was required. Many of these correc-
tions have been eliminated in the reprint which it was found advisable to
make, so that it will not be necessary for the readers to be put to the annoyance
of referring to the corrections.

The length of the corrections is also partly due to the additional informa-
tion that came to us after each instalment was printed.



Corrections and Additions.

Vol. 44, p. 236, line 30-33, should read: of the manor of West Farms.

Excepting a few small families which have settled in the United States at
various later dates, nearly all who bear the name Leggett in all parts of this
country, though particularly in the middle and western states, are scions of the
old Westchester stock.

Vol. 44, p. 237, line II. Omit: , at the end of line.

Vol. 44, p. 237, line 22. Read: and instead of but.

Vol. 44, p. 237, line 26, and wherever hereafter appears, read Richard Pon-
ton for Richard Pouton (Pauton, Phauton).

Vol. 44, p. 238, line 1-5 should read: The question of the boundary line
was supposedly settled in 1683. the two provinces having agreed on a definite
boundary, but the dispute was again opened later. In 1725 a survey was begun,
which was completed in 1731, and the boundary then fi.Ked remained unques-
tioned until 1855, when, the old survey marks having disappeared, the question
of taxes and jurisdiction near the line became very troublesome. To remedy
this, a new survey of the lines as fixed by the survey of 1731 was made, and
was finally ratified by Congress in the session of 1880-S1. (Baird's History of
Rye gives an excellent summary of this dispute.)

Vol. 44, p. 238, line 13. Read: a church was organized, so at West-
chester. . . .

Vol. 44, p. 238, line 28. Read : There he found a gathering ....

Vol. 44, p. 23g, line 21. Read: Tuckorre for Tuckowe.

Yol. 44, p. 240, line 13. Insert: , after divided.

Vol. 44, p. 240, line 16: Insert: , after proprietors.

Vol. 44, p. 240, line 34: Insert: , after records. Read: action for auction.

Vol. 44, p. 313, line 33. Insert: * after later, and add: Note: — The author
was in error in supposing that the wife of John Leggett was a Willett. She was
Anna Hunt, daughter of Thomas Hunt.

Vol. 44, p. 313. line 35. Read: Joseph Rodman Drake for Roderic Drake-

Vol. 44, p. 314, line 4. Insert: , after families.

Vol. 44, p. 314, line 24. Insert: removed after should be.

Vol. 44, p. 316, line 11. Read: Mary Hadley, the 2nd, gave release for
she gave release. . . .

Vol. 44, p. 316, line 47. Read: horses for hores.

Vol. 44, p. 317, line 19. Read: extravagant for extravagent.

V^ol. 44, p. 317, lines 22-34. Read: He was born in 1631; married Martha
Richardson about 1684; died intestate and without living issue, i6g8. Martha
Richardson Williams died about 1694.

Vol. 44, p. 318, lines 22, 28 and 2q. Read: Statham for Stratham.

Vol. 44, p. 318, line 49. Read: Thos. Baxter for Thos. Baxted.
