A descendant of Lieutenant William
French, himself named William French, a
resident of Dummerston in the New Hamp-
shire grants, was the celebrated victim of
the Westminster massacre of 1775. As this
was the direct result of the first organized
resistance to British authority in the Ameri-
can colonies, William French has been
claimed as the first martyr to the cause of
American independence. On his gravestone
is this quaint inscription :

"In memory of William French
Son to Mr. Nathaniel Frencli. Who
Was shot at Westminster, March ye 13th, 1775.
By the hands of the cruel Ministerial tools
Of Georg ye 3d, in the Corthouse at 11 o'clock
at night in the 23d year of his Age."

"Here WILLIAM FRENCH his Body lies
For Murder his Blood for Vengeance Cries
King Georg the third his Tory Crew
That with a Bawl his Head Shot threw
For liberty and his Country's Good
He Lost his Life his dearest blood. "

The name Conkling is
CONKLING found in the early records

in a variety of forms
among them Conkline, Conkling, Concklyne,
Conkelyne, and so on. The evidence is that
the early immigrants bearing it came from



England, so the name may be presumed to
be English, though there is nothing like it in
the ordinary published works dealing with
English surnames. Neither in Anglo-Saxon
nor in Norman French is there any sugges-
tion of the elements that compose the name.
One authority finds the root in Gaelic, which
once the ancient Celtic language of the
whole British Isles, is a key to those who
know it for a host of names of places and
persons both in Britain and the Continent,
apart from the places where it is still under-
stood. This authority suggests that the
name Conkling is derived from Conghailen,
the ancient Celtic form of the Gaelic name.
Connelan, transplanted to England. There
is extant an interesting pedigree of this fam-
ily carrying back to ancient Milesian times.
Whatever the origin of the name it ajipears
that it was first anglicized, and then Ameri-
canized, and that the first bearers of it here
were Annanias and John Conkling or Con-
kelyne, who were in Massachusetts a little
before the middle of the seventeenth cen-
tury. The evidence is that they came from
Nottinghamshire, England, where both ap-
pear to have been born.

(I) Annanias Conkling, or Conkelyne, the
immigrant ancestor of the Conkling family,
and his brother John are noticed in Sav-
age's "Genealogical Dictionary." Annanias
was made a freeman at Salem, May 18, 1642.
He removed in 1650 to East Hampton, and
his brother John to Southold, Long Island.
On an old gravestone there has been found
the inscription : "Here lyeth the body of
Captain John Conkelyne, born in Notting-
liamshire, England, and died at Southold,
Long Island, April 6, 1694, aged sixty four
years." Annanias died November, 1657. He
had children baptized: Lewis, April 30,
1643; Jacob, May 18, 1640; Elizabeth, May
18, 164Q. There were children mentioned at
East Hampton: Jeremiah, mentioned be-
low; Cornelius; Benjamin; Hester, married
George Miller; she was six and a half years
I'ld when her father, Annanias, died.

fll> Jeremiah Conkling, son of Annanias
Conkling. or Conkelyne, was born in 1634,
died Alarch 14, 1712. He was an admini-
strator, November 27, 1657, and afterwards
bis brother-in-law, George Miller, was ap-
pointed administrator. He married, in 1658,
Mary, born August 30, 163S, died June 15,

1727, daughter of Lion and Mary Gardiner,
who sailed June 10, 1635, from Holland to
England, then to New England, settling fin-
ally at Saybrook. Children: Jeremiah, mar-

dren were: Elizabeth, baptized April 21,
1700; Lewis, baptized January 18, 1701, mar-
ried, October 22, 1724, Elizabeth Mulford;

25. 1713: Zerviah, January 8, 1716; Cineus,

northern district of New \''ork, which office
he held until 1S52, when President Fillmore
appointed him minister to Mexico. On his
return from that mission in 1853 he settled
at Geneseo, New York, devoting himself
mainly to literary pursuits. Union Col-
lege gave him the degree of LL.D. in 1847.
He published several substantial works that
had a considerable clientele and were effec-
tive in moulding opinion in legal circles,
among them, a "Treatise on the Organiza-



tion and Jurisdiction of the Supreme, Cir-
cuit, and District Courts of the United
States," and "Admiralty Jurisdiction," "The
Powers of the Executive Department of the
United States," and the "Young Citizen's

admitted to the bar in that year and soon
became prominent both in law and in poli-
tics. He was elected mayor of Utica in

1858, and at the expiration of his first term
a tie vote between the two candidates for
the office caused him to hold over for an-
other term. In November, 1858, he was
chosen as a Republican to congress, and
took his seat in that body at the be-
ginning of its first session in December,

1859, a session noted for its long and bitter
contest over the speakership. He was re-

Mr. Kernan over whom, however, he was
elected in 1864. His first committee was
that on the District of Columbia, of which
he was afterwards chairman. He was also

the prosecution of the war. He was re-
elected in the autumn of 1866, but in June,
1867, before he took his seat, was chosen

senate he was fmm the first a member of the

judiciary committee, and was connected
with nearly all the leading committees.

the south, advocating it in the government
and by his personal influence. He was also
instrumental in the passage of the civil
rights bill, and favored the resumption of
specie payments. As presidential candidate
