delphia, to the house of his grandmother, then the widow Wyn-
koop, to be educated. In 1778, while the British were occupying
Philadelphia, the widow Wynkoop, and her family, were at
Appoquinimink Hundred, Newcastle, Del. Benjamin Wyn-
koop, probably the one who was her step -son, and his family,
also were refugees at that place, and were very gently enter-
tained. In 1780, this Nicholas Hammond married his cousin,
Sarah George, and settled at Cambridge, Md. She died, in 1781 ;
and, in 1789, he removed to Easton, Md. ; and, some years later,
he built the place "St. Aubin." In 1792, he married Rebecca
HoUyday. His letters breathe a gentle, brotherly spirit, for his
connections, as well as for his blood relations. He maintained
and educated Lieut. Dyer Sharpe Wynkoop [435], and Hester
Catalina Wynkoop [441], from her fourth to her sixteenth year.
Her father, James [177], in his last sickness, took her to Ham-
mond's house; and there James died, sj

Mary Dyer, while she was the widow Hammond, received a
conveyance of land at Appoquinimink. Abraham Wynkoop, in
1745, obtained land in the neighborhood of that of his second
wife, by deed, which described him as of Sussex County, Del,^
This land was in Cedar Creek Hundred, near Milford, Sussex v/
County. (See Cornelius P., 479). Abraham was originally of
New York; afterwards of Philadelphia and Delaware.

The executors of the will of Abraham Wynkoop made a con-
tract, July 21, 1768, for the sale of one hundred and forty-four
and a half acres of land, part of a tract, belonging to him, in
Cedar Creek Hundred; which they afterwards conveyed, by J
deed, dated June 25,' 1789. "3
