first American merchants and shipowners of his day. He met,
liowever, with severe losses. One of his ships was confiscated
by Napoleon while attempting to run the blockade of Co]^en-
hagen, but which was done against the orders of Mr. Hurry.
Another, the "John and Alice" (the largest shij) up to that
time launched in Pliiladel])hia), was seized with a cargo of flour
while lying in the port of Philadelphia, under a decision of the
American government that Samuel Hurry was a British sub-
ject. The ship "Antelope" and cargo at the same time was con-
fiscated by the British government, Mr. Hurry being an Ameri-
can merchant. Samuel Hurry was apjiointed and acted with
great credit as agent between the ITnited States and the British
shipowners in the adjustment of claims for losses in the war of
1812, his reputation and extensive experience rendering him
l)eculiarly fitted for that office. Samuel Hurry was made an
honorai'y meml)er of Saint George's Society; but few in the
society's history in the United States having been so honored.

Some years prior to his death, his health became seriously
imi)aired by falling into tlie water when boarding a slii]) in
New York harbor, and he took sea voyages to Europe and the
West Indies. In the latter part of 1819 he sailed for Clreat
Britain, accompanied by his eldest son. Landing in Ireland
they passed through that comitry and arrived at Liverpool,
but his health and strength failed so ra^ndly that he had scarce-
ly reached the home of his boyhood when his death occurred,

January 31, 18l'0. He was buried in the family vault at New-
ington Chapel. In 1825 his family removed permanently to
New York, where they have since resided, and with which they
have become thoroughly identified.

No sketch of the life of Samuel Hurry would be complete
without a special mention of his wife, }klrs. Eliza Ann (White-
side) Hurry, a woman of great force of character, and who
was a meml)er of the family of Whiteside, of Poulton le Fylde,
in Lancashire, England, where the family had long been in a
position of influence. Dn one occasion they had the honor of
receiving his majesty King George III. at their seat in Poulton,
and the silver tankard upon which was the family crest and
used by His Majesty at that time came as an heirloom into Mrs.
Hurry's i^ossession. On her maternal side Mrs. Hurry was de-
scended from Dr. John Bamber, whose epitaph in Barking
Church. Essex, states that "he practiced medicine with great
credit and honor for many years." He was one of the physi-
cians to Queen Anne, and was the lord of three manors in Es-
sex, with a town mansion at Mincing Lane. The present and
late Marquis of Salisbury are also in direct descent from Dr.
Bamber. "The Bamber Estate" of ten thousand four hundred
acres below Lakewood, New Jersey, and which has been held by
the late AVilliam Hurry and his heirs for nearly fifty years, is
so named after Dr. Bamber.

Mrs. Hurry was born in London, "within sound of Bow
Bells," and was ))ut two years old when her i)arents left Eng-
land and settled in Philadelphia. She was an excellent French
scholar, and spoke that language with ease. She was taught,
as was her sister, Mrs. Robert Clinton, to i)lay on the piano.
This piano was brought over as part of the household effects
of Mr. William Whiteside, in 1783, and was claimed to be the
first piano brought to the United States. Mrs. Hurry was hand-

some and dignified in person, and was very prominent in society
in Pliiladelpliia. As a yonng girl she was present at tlie last
ball given by Washington, and danced with the President, slie
being a great favorite of his. She died in New York, Angnst 8,
1860, at the age of seventy-nine, surrounded by her children,
and retaining to the last the noble traits of character for which
she had been so conspicuous. The seven eldest children of Sam-
uel and Eliza Anne Hurry were born in Philadelphia.

Mr. Hurry's town residence was opposite Independence
Hall, on part of the site of the jjresent Drexel building, his be-
ing one of the five residences known as Nobility Row l)y old
Philadelphians, each residence having a coach house in the

37-2 GEXEALO(iICAL AXD FAMILY HISTORY

Mr. Hnrry derived liis second l)nptisinal name from his
father's intimate friend, Edward Stmt Abdy, Esq., descended
from Sir Kobert Al)dy, of an ancient Yorkshire family, who
was created Baronet in 1660. When tlie Sonthern States at-
tempted to secede from the Union in 1861, ^fr. Hnrry, who had
just been admitted to practice at the New York bai', was ap-
I)ointed captain's clei'k to his nncle by marriage, C'ai)tain (after-
wards Commodore) Homer C. Bhike, V. S. X., then command-
ing the United States steamer ''Entaw, " and held that position
for more than a year, when lie was comi)elled to relinquish it
in consequence of illness incurred in the line of duty. As the
representative of t^aptain Blake he was present at the recep-
tion, memorable in the history of the country, given by Presi-
dent Lincoln to the officers of the IJussian fleet. At this recep-
tion only the diplomatic corps, the cabinet, and commanding offi-
cers of the army and navy then in the district of Colum])ia wer'
invited. Mr. Hurry had the great satisfaction and pleasure of
conversing with President Lincoln on that occasion. "While
Mr. Hurry was on board the "Eutaw" that vessel was engaged
in the important duty of protecting the supplies for the North-
ern army at Bermuda Hundred, James River, Virginia, and
was in the engagement of Chapin's Bluff; in blockading otT
Fort Fisher, and in preventing the enemy's ram "Albemarle"
descending the Neuse river ui)on the city of Newberne, Mr.
Hurry having performed picket duty on the Neuse river above
that city. His micle. Captain Blake, was commander of the
L^nited States steamer "Hatteras" when she encountered and
was simk by the "Alabama" in a yard-arm fight in the Gulf
of Mexico, and C^ajitain Blake's bravei-y on that occasion was
looked upon by his counti'ymen as unsurpassed.

There are few families in New York who have a more dis-
tinguished connection than the Hurrvs. Among other families

they are desceuded from are the Cliftous, Ives, A\'atts, Bracey,
AViim, Cro.ss, Coopers (of the family of Sir Ashley), and related
by blood to the Alaurices, Hares of Hurtmoneeanx, Churchills,
C'liutons, Fenwieks, from whom Ambassador Waddingtou was
desceuded, who represented France at the Court of Saiut James,
Pagets, Hershalls. I^lilmaus, Aldersou, Erskiue, preseut Earl of
Alarr, Cecils, Huxleys, O'Couuels, and Sumuers (of whom the
Archbishop Sumuer, who placed the crown ui)on the head of
Queen Victoria). The j)resent Lord Salisbury is related by
blood also to the Hurry family of New York, through his grand-
father, the late Baron Aldersou. His father, Edmund Hurry,
was the consulting architect of the Xew York Crystal Palace,
and his sister, Sophia F., married for her second husband, Alex-
ander Macomb Mason, a grandson of General Alexander Ma-
comb; she had no issue by either marriage. Alexander Macomb
Mason was secretary to his uncle, Hon. James Mason, who was
with Slidell in the famous "Trent" affair. After the war he with
other officers entered the service of the Egyptian government,
and was for some years the senior Bey of Egypt. Mr. Hurry's
wife, Mrs. Emily (Aslitou) Hurry, is a great-granddaughter of
Mrs. William Renwick, who, as Jennie Jeffrey, daughter of the
Rev. Dr. Andrew Jeft'rey, of Lockmaben, was the "Blue Eyed
Lassie" iunnortalized in the poems of Robert Burns. Mrs.
LIurry is also a great-great-granddaughter of William Floyd,
one of the two signers of the Declaration of Independence for
the state of Xew York, whose daughter Catharine married Rev.
Samuel Clarkson, M. D., D. D., whose daughter Harriet married
William Bedlow Crosby, whose daughter Eliza S. married Will-
iam Rhinelander Renwick, the father of Mrs. Hurry. Mrs.
Hurry is in descent also from the Rutgers, Bedlow, dePeyster,
Rhinelander. and Roliert families.

is a member of the Delta Phi fraternity and club, and a veteran
of Comi^any K, Seventh Eegiment; married at Trinity Church,
Saugerties, New York, May 18, 1904, Lucy Washington Morss,
only daughter of Foster B. Morss and his wife, Lucy Madison
Packett, of Albany. Their son, Kenwick Washington Hurry,
born at Eye, AVestchester county, New York, August 27, 1905,
is the fifth in line of descent from Samuel Washington, who
inherited Mount Vernon, full brother of General George Wash-
ington, and is also the great-great-granduephew of Dolly Madi-
son.

Eutgers Ives Hurry, born at New York, November 17, 1883,
married, at Saint James' Church, New York, April 30, 1907,
Aline Virginia Kent, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Blake
Kent, of New York, Mr. Kent being of the Maryland Kents.

The residence of Mr. Hurry abounds in relics of past and
honored generations, and among them is a fine portrait in oil
of General Wolfe, a relative of the Hurry family, also a por-
trait of DeWitt Clinton, by Inman, and which he inherited from
his mother, and she from her father, being the only profile por-
trait of the great governor.

The late Dr. Atkins, a distant cousin of the Hurrys through
the Wolfe family, and who was in the employ of the Panama
Canal Company, had a pedigree embracing the entire family of
Hurry, of which the Great Yarmouth family of Hurry were the
principal members for the last two hundred years (which he
referred to as a splendid connection), and which he saved with
other papers in an iron box by dragging it into the street during
the fire at Colon. Isaac John Greenwood, Esq., of New York,
has also collated a jiedigree from Eagman's Eoll, etc., of the
Hurry descent from the Lords Eure, afterAvards Barons Pit-
ficliy. Lords of the Marches in Scotland. "One of them. Gen-

eral Sir Jolm Hurry, was cavalry general of the Cromwellian
period ; a man of marked ability as a general of horse, and who
had been trained in the wars of the low Countries." He went
to those wars from England with "a magnificent retinue."

Mr. Edmund Abdy Hurry is a prominent member of the
Union League, University and Church Clubs of New York. He
is also connected with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a life
member of the Genealogical and Biographical Society, in which
he has an active interest, and was formerly secretary and trus-
tee. He is also a life member of St. Nicholas Society, the Ameri-
can Geographical Society and a member of St. George's Society.

During the trying times of 1862 ]\[r. Hurry was volunteer
night nurse to our wounded and sick soldiers at the hospital on
Lexington avenue and Forty-ninth street, and also at Bellevue
Hospital. His colleague, Augustus King, son of President
Charles King, of Columbia College, perished in the line of
duty. Mr. Hurry has had the rare distinction of Ijeing present
by invitation of Black Rod on the floor of the House of Lords,
upon which occasion he listened to the speech of his relative,
the late Lord Salisbury, then Prime Minister.

Mr. Hurry's city residence is Xo. 122 East Thirty-ninth
street. His country seat is ''Clifton" Barclay Heights, Sauger-
ties on the Hudson, New York.

FAMH.Y OF BURLING.

In the year 1692, if any one had asked the Governor of the
Province or the Mayor of the City or the Judge of the Su}u-eme
Court: Is there a Quaker Meeting House in New York? the
answer would be prom])tly made, "None tliat we know of.
Quakers as a body cannot hold real estate. A Quaker Meeting
House would be contrary to law. But there is a ]irivate dwelling
house on Green Lane owned bv Edward Burling, and there the



376 GENEALOGICAL AXD E AM I LI' HISTORY

peo2)le who call themselves Friends, but whom we call (^)iiakers,
hold meetings on what they call 'tirst day,' hut of course there
is no Ci)uake]- .Meeting- House."

The same answer would have l)een given if they had been
asked, "Is there a Jewish Synagogue in New York?" There
was none that had a legal existence, l)ut it was pretty well known
that on "Mill Street" tliere was a dwelling house owned by Mr.
John Harperdick, but leased by certain Jews who used it as a
synagogue, and was known to every one in the city by that name.
As late as the time when the Methodist Society was organized,
the (juestion arose as to how they could own and establish a
church. "Put a fireplace and a chimney in your building," said
the liberal guardians of the law, "and then it will l)e a dwelling
house, and not a church." Such was the condition of things at
that time. Jews, (Quakers and Methodists all had a well known
actual existence, but in the eye of the law they did not exist
at all.

Among the Quakers in New York at that early day no one
is more prominent than Edward Burling. He and his wife Grace
came from England about 1678. They were the parents of
seven children, three of whom were born in England, and four
in America, the following being their names and dates of birth:
Edward, born 4th day of 9th month, 1674; Grace, 29th of 8th,
1676; William, 26th of 10th, 1678; Rebekah, ... of 6th, 1681;
Jane, 17th of 5tli, 1684, married James Mott, 1717; Sarah, 12th
of 3rd, 1687, married John Way. 1716; Benjamin, 6th of 12th,
1689-90, died 21st of 10th, 1707.

It must be rememliered that at that time the year began
on the 25tli day of March, and that month was called "the first
month." February was the twelfth month. This is called "Old
Style," and continued till 1753.

Edward Burling, the ancestor of the family, came to New

Bickley a lot of land on Broadway, a little north of what is now
Liberty street. This lot extended east to a narrow street called
Green Lane (now Liberty Place). In the deed he is mentioned
as "late of Hewletts Island, wheelwright." On the rear of this
lot, and fronting "Green Lane," he with one or two others,
erected a dwelling house in 1696. This was used as the Quaker
meeting house, and was the first in New York.

The representative of one of the branches of this family was
