according to a son of Colonel Marinus, the ancestors of the Colonel were
Church of England people as far as the family could trace them.
Edward's father, Elbert, and grandfather, Colonel Thomas, were com-
municants and pewholders of Grace Church, Jamaica. Thirdly, the names
of Edward's father and mother and uncle, Elbert, Joanna, and Marinus,
not usual ones, are handed down in the family of Col. Marinus Willett.
Fourthly, Colonel Marinus was always thought by the family to be a
cousin of Anna, wife of William Bartow, of Westchester. He often
stayed with the family, who called him cousin. Anna Bartow was the
daughter of Thomas Willett, of Westchester, the third son of Major
William Willett, brother of Elbert, sons of Colonel Thomas, of Flushing.
This would make Colonel Marinus of the Flushing family.

A careful study of all the data I have collected would convince anyone
that I am likely to be correct.

On the other hand, there is the great argument of the family tradition
of Marinus being a descendant of the first mayor. But may not the
family have thought so and been mistaken ? It is not strange that they
so thought, when the early historians confused the first Mayor of New
York with Col. Thomas of Flushing, who was a member of the Gov-
ernor's Council in New York. The following is a proof that some of the
Flushing family think they are descended from the first Mayor of New
York. In Thomas Jones' History of New York during the Revolution-
ary period, edited by Mr. Edward F. de Lancey, it is said that the mother
of Judge Jones was Anna, second daughter of Col. William Willett, of
Westchester, and a descendant of the first Mayor of New York ! It says,
however, as I think correctly, that Mrs. Anna Jones was a relative of Col.
Marinus Willett.

Samuel Willett, Sheriff of Queens County, who is said to be the father
of Edward Willett, of Jamaica, is made the same as Samuel, the son of
Mayor Thomas Willett. I do not think that this Samuel, the sheriff, was
the same as Samuel, the mayor's son, as in that case he would be elected
a sheriff when sixty-five years of age. The descent of Marinus Willett,
according to my researches, is : Thomas Willett, of New York — wife,
Sara Cornell ; Col. Thomas Willett, of Flushing — wife, Helena Stoothoff ;
Elbert Willett, of Flushing, removed to Jamaica — wife, Joanna Varick ;
Edward Willett, of Jamaica — wife, Aletta Clowes ; Col. Marinus Willett,
Mayor of New York.



ANTECEDENTS OF THE WELLES FAMILY.



By Charles Stuart Welles, M.D., 170' West 5STH Street.



Ladies and Gentlemen : — I am invited here this evening to dilate
upon the virtues of the Welles family ; for no one supposes for a
moment that I should consider myself invited by your honored President
to discuss their vices; nor that any family could have a lineage excepting
whose virtues so far transcend their vices that they form not only the
lineage of great families, but the history of great nations.

I have referred to the Welles family, although no single name is
distinctive excepting it be of a personal biography, and lam here pro-

posing to date back to the Revolution, with a cursory glance at my
ancestry there, together with some interesting details pertaining to the
massacre of Wyoming. I shall show also an interesting descent from an
officer in the Continental army, Lieut. Obadiah Gore, Jr., whose brothers
perished in the massacre of Wyoming.

Prior to the Revolution, in relation to the Welles side of my ancestry,
it may be proper to state that my first ancestor of note in America was
Gov. Thomas Welles, who
was the second Governor
of Connecticut, succeeding
Governor Haynes, who
died in 1654.

Gov. Welles was born in
Essex County, England, in
1594, there descended from
a long line of noble ances-.
tors supposed to be con-
nected with the line of
Baron Richard De Welles,
knighted by William the
Conqueror February 6,
1 299, and thence known in
history as the " Baker Bar-
on." Governor Welles,
however, did not himself
emigrate as a pioneer into
this country from Eng-
land, but, together with
his brothers, followed the
father, Thomas Welles,
Sr., one of the English
Puritans who came first in
1629 in one of the three
ships, George Bonavenlnre,

Lion's Whelp, or Talbot, rR c s welles

which landed at Naumkeag

(now Salem, Mass.) one year before Boston was founded in 1630. Most
of the children removed into Rhode Island about 1633, prior to the set-
tlement made by the Roger Williams Company. Thomas Welles, the
senior, here purchased a tract of land, consisting of over four hundred
acres, from the Narragansett Indians, some of which land yet remains
in the family, now over two centuries; at his death he was interred in
a plot at this settlement of Wellestown, called by the curious name of
"Chimney Orchard."

Thomas Welles, the younger, afterwards Governor, with two brothers,
in 1635 returned to Massachusetts, and thence, in company with others,
undertook the great work of founding Connecticut at Hartford. Thomas
was chosen Magistrate at Hartford May 1, 1637, and Treasurer in April,
1639 ! thence Moderator of the General Court (until a Governor could be
chosen) at a convention of freemen in Hartford February, 1654 ; then
Deputy-Governor 1654, and Governor 1655. He died at Wethersfield,
Conn., January 14, 1666, aged sixty-two years, and was buried at




j j a Antecedents of the Welles Family. [October,

Hartford, where, about 1844, after two centuries, a fitting monument was
erected to his honor.

Of the distinguished line of the Welles family who have since been
resident of the State of Connecticut, the most notable member was the
Hon. Gideon Welles, who, as all very well know, was Secretary of the
Navy unler President Lincoln. He was a statesman who exercised very
great influence in resisting the spread of slavery and in opposing the
States' rights doctrine of secession ; and he was one of the pioneers in
the formation of the Republican party. His splendid record at the
head of the Connecticut delegation which nominated Lincoln, and at his
post of duty during the trying years of the war of the Rebellion, needs little
encomium from me.

Other branches of the Welles stock settled West, among the patentees
from the Crown, on a tract of land of 60,000 acres, extending from
Albany to Lake George. The Welles family also took an active part in
the war of the Revolution, and many of them laid down their lives on
the battlefields of Bunker Hill, Fort Griswold, White Plains, and other
scenes of their valor and patriotism. After the Revolution the Welleses
were among the pioneers to settle Pennsylvania ; and George Welles, my
great-grandfather (son of John Welles and grandson of Hon. Thomas
Welles of Glastonbury, Conn.), went to northern Pennsylvania as a part-
ner with Ashbel Welles and Richard Caton, they having bought the
Lockhart warrant for more than 1,000 acres at Tioga Point, Bradford
Countv, on the Susquehanna River, the land extending from the Point,
at the confluence with the Chemung River, to a line near Mile Hill, and
from its shape was known as the "Warrant of the Indian Arrow."
George Welles may be called the first Pennsylvania claimant, and with
his coming a long legal contest with the Connecticut settlers ensued.
He was a graduate at Vale College, and a man not only of abilitv, but of
accurate business habits, as was evinced in an account book lately
discovered in the old family homestead at Athens, Pa., which was begun
one week after his settlement there, July 19, 1 798.

His son, my grandfather, Gen. Henry Welles, was most intimately
connected, not only with the growth of this village of Athens, Pa., but
with the affairs of the State. The town academv, begun in 1793, stood
unfinished for fourteen years for lack of funds, but was finally completed
through his influence, as he obtained from the Legislature a grant of
$2,000. He also obtained for it its first teacher. He also gave the lot
on which the Presbyterian church now stands. He was made an aide to
Governor Snyder, with the rank of general ; and several years before the
death of George Welles, his father, which occurred in 1S13, Henry suc-
ceeded to the ownership of the family interest in the Lockhart warrant.
He had married Sarah, a daughter of Col. John Spalding, of Sheshequin,
Pa., and granddaughter of Lieut. Obadiah Gore, Jr., of the Continental
army, her mother being Wealthy Gore Spalding. It is an interesting
coincidence that my mother is descended from Hannah Gore, a sister of
Wealthy, and so stands in the same relation as does my father to Lieut.
Obadiah Gore, Jr.

In his landed interests Gen. Henry Welles held frequent correspond-
ence and the most intimate friendship with Charles Carroll, of Carrollton,
one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. While a member
of the Pennsylvania Legislature General Welles was esteemed to be a

man of such probity and influence that he was chosen commissioner to
arbitrate upon the disputed claims between the settlements of Pennsyl-
vania and Connecticut.

From such ancestry sprung my father, Henry Spalding Welles, one of
six children, and who has played no inconspicuous part in our present
day. He became a man of much prominence, as may be seen from the
following obituary notice, published at the time of his death, August 29,
1895, in the New York Tribune:

" Mr. Henry S. Welles, well known as a contractor of large public
works, died yesterday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, of cerebral hemorrhage,
at the home of his son, Dr. Charles Stuart Welles, New York City. He
was the son of Gen. Henry Welles, of Tioga Point, Pa. He proved him-
self, during the war of the Rebellion, as patriotic a citizen as were his
ancestors during the Revolution. In 1847 his active intelligence identi-
fied itself with the rapid spread of railroads, and his first operation was




the construction of about twenty-seven miles of the Great Western Rail-
road in Canada. In 1852 he had constructed, under the firm nameof H.
S. Welles & Co. (Col. C. F. Welles, of Athens, Pa., being the Co.), over
one hundred miles of the New York and Erie Railroad, together with
sixteen miles of the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad.
Succeeding this, the firm's operations included forty miles of the Buffalo
and State Line Railroad ; some forty miles of the Delaware, Lackawanna
Railroad, a very heavy mechanical work ; the whole of the Lackawanna and
Bloomsburg Railroad ; the Warren Railroad of New Jersey, forty miles;
and, at the breaking out of the war, the firm had nearly finished the Bruns-
wick and Albany Railroad, two hundred and fifty miles across the State of
Georgia. Probably the greatest work of Welles & Co. was the water
works of the city of Brooklyn, a contract of some $5,000,000. Mr.
Welles was, after the Civil War, retained by the United States Govern-
ment to clear Savannah harbor of its sunken obstructions. He was a
man of great magnetism, energy, and commanding presence. He leaves

In searching the records for admission to membership in the Society
of the Sons of the Revolution, in the course of my investigations of the
Gore lamily descent I cajne across a paper written by my mother's mother,
who took the account directly from the lips of her mother, my great-
grandmother, Hannah Gore Durkee, the daughter of Lieutenant Gore, Jr.

This paper I take pleasure in offering to the archives of your Society
on account of the unusual details having been preserved in this manner.
Doubtless all the early settlers met with similar experiences, but the diffi-
culties of securing true accounts of such events are great, as when even
they were written they were not likely to be carefully preserved. In a
new and growing country the necessities of hustling for a living are so
great that the importance of preserving literature and relics does not
occur to the common mind, and priceless records are thus lost to the
world. Before reading Mrs. Durkee's narrative I will say that Lieutenant
Gore, Mrs. Durkee's lather, was in the service from August, 1776, and
was at White Plains with the Continental army at the time of the
Wyoming massacre. In that massacre three of his brothers and two
brothers-in-law were killed ; another brother, Daniel, was wounded, and
Samuel escaped unhurt ; while John Gore, the youngest brother, was safe
in " Forty-Fort."

The narrative of Mrs. Durkee, which was then read, is preserved in
the Library of the Society.
