Notes for John Swank:
John Swank (original name Johannes Schwenk) born about 1750 in Pennsylvania, or more likely, he came over from Germany as a child with his parents Balthasar and Anna Margaret Schwenk.
According to Trinity Church records, on Nov. 28, 1769, John and Rosannah Summit (RosinaSammet) were married in Reading, Pennsylvania. Her father was Jacob Sammet.
John and Rosannah moved to Washington Co., Maryland in the early 1770's, and he took the oath of allegiance there during the Revolutionary War.
Later he moved his family to Hardin Co., Kentucky around 1780 where they became prosperous pioneers. John Swank owned slaves and had more than 2,500 acres of land.
-
On August 12, 1794 as he and Rosannah were riding on horseback from Elizabethtown to Bardstown when they were attacked by Indians. John put his wife on his wounded horse and then fled on foot to a cave on the old Cofer farm two miles from the fort. While trying to conceal himself his dog betrayed him by barking at the pursuing Indians, and he was murdered, suffering nineteen bullet wounds. Tradition says John remained sitting upright with his back against the projecting rocks, and after many bullets were fired into his body the Indians became frightened and fled thinking he was a spirit.
Rosannah fled on her husband's horse until the horse collapsed. She then got away on foot and made it to a friends home on Rolling Fork. She was a big woman and her new linsey dress was slowing her down, so she took it off and carried it over her arm, but took care to save all the precious pins which she stuck in a neat row across her frock.
-
John Swank lived in a fort of his own two miles northeast of Elizabethtown. It occupied the ground where their son-in-law, William Edlin, afterwards lived and died. John and Rosannah left a considerable family, most of whom became rich or comfortable and subsequently moved to Missouri.
-
The 1795 KY census listed in Hardin Co. are: John Swank; John Swank Jr.; Rosana Swank; and Rosanna Swank.
-
John Swank's father, Jacob Swank was probably born in Germany.

His son Jacob, who married Elizabeth Van Meter, built a large brick home near Charleston, MO, which became a landmark. Daughter Susannah and husband William B. Roll moved to Harrison Co., IN.

16. Abraham M. Hayter, born Dec 1735 in Plumstead, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania; died 22 Aug 1815 in Hayters Gap, Washington Co., Virginia. He was the son of 32. Abraham Hayter and 33. Martha or Nancy Rankins. He married 17. Susannah Darrock Abt. 1753 in "High on a Windy Hill", Washington Co., Virginia.

Notes for Abraham M. Hayter:
Abraham was the Captain of Piney Creek Hundred Militia during the Revolutionary War. He was also Constable of Piney Creek Hundred, PA.
-
On 4 April 1760, Abraham Hayter bought 1003 acres of a tract called "Brooks Discovery on the Rich Lands" for 250 pounds current money. This tract lay in Frederick County, now Carroll County, MD between Taneytown and the Monocacy River, north of the present Taneytown-Emmitsburg Road and south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Over the next decade, Hayter bought andsold a considerable a mount of land in the area, breaking up large tracts and selling the minimum family-size farms . It is believed that Abraham's real estate partner, Andrew Parks, may have been his brother-in -law (supposing that Parks's wife Rachell was Susannah's sister). In a deed of 18, November 1786, both Hayter & Parks are listed as being of Virginia. Hayter was popular with the German immigrants of Maryland in the 1760s because he could speak their language. They petitioned the court to appoint him justice of the peace. In 1771, he gave two acres of land to be used as the site of the Piney Creek Presbyterian Church. It is believed that the Hayter family originates in Northern England, then moves to Northern Ireland, then settles along the Delaware River, moving down to southeast Pennsylvania to Frederick County, MD.

Notes for Jacob Sammet:


Jacob arrived in Philadelphia on September 10, 1753 aboard the ship "Buelah", out of Rotterdam and Cowes (just two miles off the southeastern coast of England). He later removed with his family to western Pennsylvania. An ancient trail used by the Catawba and Cherokee goes through Western Pennsylvania in the same area where Christian and Jacob Sammet lived, along with the Swanks and Mathias Summet. The name of the trail, used by early pioneers that goes thru western Pennsylvania and then goes through the Carolinas is called the "Catawba Trail."
-
April 27, 1755 - "Early Records of the First Reformed Church of Philadelphia; Volume 1; 1748-1 780" Christian Sammet m. Maria Stahle. It is important to know that Berks County was formed from Philadelphia County in 1752, just the year before Jacob arrived at Philadelphia. Point being this is the same locale that Christian Sammet married Maria Stahlern in 1755, this likely indicates a connection between the two individuals. Note: no date of entry is recorded for a Christian Sammet into the colonies, but there is for Jacob. Christian may migrated to the colonies with Jacob, possibly as father and son.

Notes for Jacob Vanmeter:


Jacob served in Captain Richard Morgan's company from Mecklinburg, Virginia in the French and Indian War from 1756 to 1758 [Shepherdtown Register, 14 January 1903]. "About 1768, Jacob Van Meter, together with John Swan, Sr., and others made a tour of the lands, then claimed as part of northwestern Virginia, since established as a southwestern part of Pennsylvania. They had decided to sell their property in the Winchester, Virginia vicinity and locate on land which was to be granted for service in the French and Indian War. They reached the vicinity of present Carmichaelstown, in present Greene County, Pennsylvania, and 'tomahawked' (marked on trees) such land as they wanted along Muddy Creek in what is known as "Ten Mile County", land lying on the western side of Ten Mile Creek, a tributary of the Monongahela River. Returning home, they brought back their families, slaves and such household goods as could be carried on pack horses. There were about fifty people in the party which settled along Muddy Creek. "Van Meter was granted 400 acres of land on the westside of the Monongahela, (Application Number 2405, dated 3 April 1769), also a grant for 211 acres, a tract called 'Burgundy,' also on the westside of the river. "John Swan, Thomas Hughes and Henry Van Meter, brother of Jacob, were also granted land for services. All four erected forts located near each other on bottom land, not far from the mouth of MuddyCreek:
Fort Van Meter, by Jacob Van Meter, on Muddy Creek;
Fort Swan, by John Swan, on Swan's Run;
Another Fort Van Meter, by Henry Van Meter, on Swan's Run.
The location of Thomas Hughes' fort is not listed.
The fact that Jacob Van Meter was a deeply religious man is attested by his actions in helping organize three Baptist churches in his life time. Ellis' History of Fayette County, Pennsylvania relates the story of the forming of the Great Bethel Regular Baptist church: "This organization was formed in the year 1770, and is evidently one of the first religious societies established within the boundaries of Fayette County (Pennsylvania).... In the oldest books of records ... the following letter is copied verbatim, viz: 'The Church of Jesus Christ of Great Bethel, Constituted as is supposed in Province of Pennsylvania, holding Believers, Baptism, & c, sindeth greeting To all Christian People to whom these may Concern, ... Sign'd by us this Eighth day of November in the year of our lord Christ--1770.
Witness our hands,
Jacob Vanmetre
Richard Hall
Zepheniah Blackford
Because we are few in number our sisters are allowed to sign.
Rachel Sutton
Lettice Vanmetre
Sarah Hall
N.B. 'That this Church was Constituted by me, Nov. 7th, 1770, and that the Bearer was licensed to Preach before me, or in my Presence, as witness my hand this 8th day of Nov., 1770. Henry Crosbye.''
Jacob Van Meter was instrumental in the organization of another church while living in Pennsylvania: Goshen Baptist Church, organized in 1774 in Garrard's Fort, when he moved there. In that original body were found ten members of the Van Meter family: Jacob and his wife, Letitia , Rebecca and her husband, Edward Rawlings, Susannah, and her husband, Reverend John Garrard, Mary and her husband, David Henton (who was the first clerk of this church), Elizabeth, and her husband John Swan, Jr.
A list of the families who settled in the 'Ten Mile Country' is of interest in that their associations did not end there, but through marriage and otherwise, continued in Kentucky: Van Meter, Swan, Strode, Hughes, Shelby, Harrod, Coleman, Brown, Rice, Biggs, Kincaid, Chenoweth, Garrard, Heaton (Henton),. They doubtless regarded themselves as being "Virginians," living on the land claimed by both Virginia and Pennsylvania, and had a feeling of support for a fellow Virginian, George Rogers Clark, not felt by the Pennsylvanians, in Clark's military campaigns during the Revolution.
The Harrods are familiar names to students of Revolutionary War history and of Clark's campaign in the Northwest. The Van Meters and Swan family were also represented in Clark's force. William Harrod was a captain in the Illinois Regiment, John Swan, Jr. a lieutenant, Jacob Van Meter, son of Henry Van Meter, and nephew of Jacob Van Meter Sr., was ensign of the regiment. Richard Chenoweth, John Hughes and Isaac Van Meter, son of Jacob Van Meter Sr., are listed as privates among those who received land for their services under Clark. The "Ten Mile Country" was well represented in the Illinois Regiment....
The Revolution had not ended but the men from "Ten Mile Country" had returned from the war in the Northwest Territory and some would be in the colony of over a hundred people organized by Jacob Van Meter, Sr. to move to 'Kaintucke."
Official records regarding Jacob include:
1. Constable on 6 December 1774 when Joseph Hill was appointed in his stead [Annual, Carnegie Museum, V. 1, p. 526].
2. He was on the Committee for Augusta County, Virginia which met in Pittsburgh on 16 May 1775 .
3. He also appears in the minutes of the Court of Yohogania County, Virginia (prior to the date when that section was established as part of Pennsylvania) for 23 March 1779.
4. Jacob and his son Abraham and others produced recommendations from the Court of Monongahela County, Virginia to pass unmolested to the Falls of the Ohio (now Louisville, Kentucky), which recommendations were read and approved.
5. On 18 September 1779 Jacob Van Meter and his family had been granted certificates of dismission by the Goshen Baptist Church. Jacob took 27 house boats at Fort Pitt in 1779, loaded with household goods, livestock and anything they could pile on the boats, and went down the Ohio River, landing near Bear Grass (now Louisville) [Draper Manuscripts CC-11, p.232].
All of the Van Meter children, with the exception of daughter Eleanor, accompanied their parents, together with their husbands and wives. One babe in arms was in the party, the little daughter of Lieutenant John Swan Jr., and his wife, Elizabeth Van Meter. Swan was sitting on the deck on one of the boats with his little girl in his arms when he was struck by an Indian arrow, fired from the river bank. His wife grabbed his gunand began helping the men ward off the attack. Another tragedy struck the party when Mary Van Meter's husband, David Henton, fell into the river while helping unload the boats and was drowned.
In the party were two families of slaves belonging to the Jacob Van Meter Sr. In his will were provisions that they were to be set free upon the death of his wife. They were to serve her during her lifetime, but if she lived until they were thirty years old, they were to be given their freedom.
They started in September 1779 and arrived at Severns Valley, Hardin County, Kentucky in June 1780. They were first to settle between the Ohio and Green Rivers in the Wilderness, a colony of 100 persons.
Jacob was active in military operations along the Ohio and served under General George Rogers Clark in Kaskaskia against the Indians under renegade Simon Girty in 1782 (when they tried to run the white settlers out of Kentucky). He was on the Coshocton campaign in Captain William Crawford's Company under the command of his nephew Colonel David Shepherd in 1791 [Wither's Chronicals p. 133 and Shepherd's Papers, V. 4, p. 3].
Louisville, which had been established as a town at the Falls of the Ohio in 1780, saw great numbers of settlers from Virginia and Pennsylvania arrive by way of the Ohio River and scatter south into the country toward the Green River. Among them were Jacob Van Meter and his family who had arrived at the Falls in the previous fall and waited for the warm spring months before moving on to their new home. Jacob came to Severns Valley and later settled on the farm known as the "Strickler Place," about two miles from Elizabethtown on Billy's Creek, near where it joins that main stream of Valley Creek. Jefferson County records show that Jacob Van Meter, Stephen Rawlings and Edward Rawlings all bought land from John Severns, who also sold 400 acres to Andrew Hynes in November 1779.
Jacob built a fort near Haycraft's soon after his arrival. The following account first appeared in the Elizabethtown News in 1869 and was republished in book form in 1889-90: "In the year 1780 the first settlements were made around the present site of Elizabethtown, then Jefferson county, Virginia, and the three forts were erected. They were rather stockades, afterward called stations.
The manner of erecting these forts was to dig a trench with spades or hoes or such implements as they could command, then set in split timbers, reaching ten or twelve feet above the ground and fixed around the proposed ground sufficiently large to contain some five, six or eight dwellings with a block house, as a kind of citadel with port holes. "That was considered a sufficient defense against the Indians armed with rifles or bows and arrows, but with a siege gun of the present day (1869) a well directed shot would level a hundred yards of these pristine fortifications.
The mode of attack by the Indians when in sufficient force was to try to storm the fort, or by lighted torches thrown upon the roofs of the buildings within to burn out the besieged, but they rarely succeeded in setting fire. If in small force the Indians would conceal themselves behind trees and watch a whole day for some unwary pale-face to show himself above the fortification and pick him off.
He then built a grain mill on Valley Creek where Billy's Creek enters it. Others say he also had a still. (He had a still and a tavern license to keep travelers in his home at the time of his death).
He is said to have raised the first wheat in Hardin County, having brought the seed with him from Virginia.
A year after arrival in Severns Valley, Jacob Van Meter assisted in organizing the Severns Valley Baptist Church, the oldest church west of the Allegheny Mountains, still in existence and one of the largest Baptist bodies in Kentucky at this date. Jess Thompson reported that the church was "established under a spreading sugar tree in the Kentucky wilderness on 17 June 1781 ." His wife, his son, Jacob, Jr., and his Negro man, Bambo, were also members. Many of his descendants have become noted in carrying on the work of the church.
The elder Van Meter was an extensive landholder, having fourteen grants of land from the Virginia government, dated 1783 and 1784. One was a preemption Treasury Warrant signed by Beverly Randolph. Doubtless, some of the land was divided among his children and members of his family. The Auditor's office has no record of land granted to his son-in-law, SamuelHaycraft.
Jacob built a small grist mill at the mouth of Billy's Creek for grinding corn and wheat. Corn was ground there for the small distillery operated by Samuel Haycraft. Samuel Haycraft, Jr. who wrote the History of Elizabethtown mentions that, as a young boy it was his duty to go with a bag of corn three times daily (Sunday excepted) to the mill of his grandfather.
Jacob died at his home in Hardin County, Kentucky on 16 November 1798. He and Letitia, who died the following year, were buried side by side in a family cemetery. His son, Jacob, procured a sandstone rock for a tombstone and cut the following inscription on it: 'Here Lizes The Body of Jacob Van Meter Died in the 76 Yare of His Age November the 16, 1798.' Jess Thompson states that "The spellings in this crude inscription appear to be an attempt to give to the words the sound that old Jacob gave to them throughout his life." Jacob's son-in-law, Haycraft, stated "Therefore let no man pretend to criticise it (the epitaph) or alter it. It is a jewel to me, so all mankind let it alone. It is the honest homespun epitaph of a good man and Christian, who braved all the perils of his day, honorable, kind, hospitable and generous, and truly a patriarch."
At the time of his death, he owned 7,891 acres. The inventory of his estate covers four pages of Will Book A, pages 80 to 84 and 216, Hardin County Court. In 1965 a descendant, Mrs. Lee Sims (Ruth Bruner) of Frankfort, Kentucky had the ashes removed to the Elizabethtown City Cemetery, Hardin County, Kentucky, as all of Jacob's home farm was being made into a subdivision of Elizabethtown. It is beside his daughter Margaret and her husband Samuel Haycraft that they are now resting and their grave has a beautiful bronze marker to tell of his exploits:

LETITIA STROUD Van METER
1725-1799
Married in Virginia 1741

Notes for Leticia Strode:


"Letia (Letitia) Strode's ancestry has created lively arguments. Theissue: who was her father ? Some descendants have insisted Letia was thedaughter of James Strode, perhaps with the ai m of being eligible formembership in the D.A.R. The preponderance of evidence is that herpare nts were Edward and Elinor. If so, Letia was Capt. James Strode'ssister. Elston has persuasiv e arguments that this is the case. Inaddition, photocopies of loose papers found inside the ' Arnold Bible'lists Letia as Edward and Elinor Strode's child born 19 August 1725.Records coll ected by Viola Barr Hughes shows Letia (Letitia) born 30August 1725. The difference in date s is 'old' style and 'new' style.
"There is agreement that Letia (Letitia) married Jacob Van Meter on 30August 1741 (in Frederi cks County, Virginia) at a young 16 years of age.
The Van Meters, a leading Virginia family, opposed the marriage becauseof Letia's Baptist rel igious beliefs and on moral grounds. The Van Metersfelt the first born child did not belong t o their son, Jacob. "Jacob andLetia lived in Berkeley County, Virginia until about 1769, the n untilabout 1779-80 near Carmichael, Pennsylvania. They then moved toElizabethtown, Hardin C ounty, Kentucky. The family, except the oldestdaughter, Eleanor, had certificates from the Ba ptist Church 18 September1779 to leave for Kentucky." She died on 25 December 1799 in HardinC ounty, Kentucky.

Notes for Jan Jansen or John Van Meteren:


The family settled in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where Jan became a wealthy land owner and horse breeder. "Kegley's Virginia Frontier in describing the earliest history of Virginia, says: 'The Van Meters cross the Powtomack (Potomac River). John and Isaac Van Meter were traders who knew the country about the Potomac and the Shenandoah as early as 1728. After 1721 Isaac lived in New Jersey, but John had moved westward toward the southwest part of Maryland. In 1730 their petitions for 10,000 acres each in the forks of the Shenando River and 20,000 more for other families were granted. This was not to interfere with the surveys of Carter and Page.' ...Jost Hite with Robert McKay began acquiring land in the Shenandoah Valley in 1731. They with one hundred families were desirous of seating (settling) themselves on the back of the Great Mountains on land lying between the land of John Van Meter, Jacob Stover, John Fishback and others. ... Hite acquired the Van Meter grants in 1734 and patents began to issue to his settlers, one thousand acres to each family ... joining the land of 'Jost Heyd' and others . "Mrs. Sims' article (material provided by Mrs. Ruth Bruner Sims of Frankfort, Kentucky) says John Van Meter and his brother Isaac, were granted 110,000 acres of land in the Shenandoah Valley by the Royal Governor, William Gooch, which they later sold to their cousin, Jost Hite, after selecting choice sites for themselves, while it was still a wilderness." He died on 13 August 1745 at Apequon, Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia and his will was probated there on 3 September 1745. "He drew up a lengthy will in which Jacob Van Meter was called 'my fourth and youngest son,' by which he inherited an equal share of 'all Staylen (stallions), geldings, mares, colts.' He inherited land, but not the estate 'Opequen,' on which his father lived, since he was the youngest."

59. Eleanor Shepard, born Abt. 1699; died 1794 in Berkeley Co., Virginia. She was the daughter of 118. William Shepherd and 119. Sarah Cochran.

Notes for Edward Strode:


"No one is absolutely sure where Edward Strode lived after leaving Chester County, Pennsylvania. This is understandable since records are sketchy or non-existent in Virginia because of changing boundaries. For example, Berkeley County, West Virginia, was once Berkeley County, Virginia. The county was formed out of a part of Frederick County, Virginia in 1772; Frederick County from Orange County, in 1738; and Orange from Spotsylvania County in 1734.
"Edward eventually settled on Opequon Creek at the juncture with the Potomac River and built a stone fort which became known as the Strode Fort Farm. An article in the Kentucky Citizen said, 'In 1758, Edward Strode supplied provisions for the army in the French and Indian War. There are traditional stories of heroism on the part of the Strode women when the fort was attacked in the absence of men.'
"In the Berkeley County Deed Book 2, page 86, 10 June 1773, Edward Strode of Berkeley County sold to his son, Jeremiah Strode, for 100 pounds, part of a greater tract of land granted to Morgan Bryan by our Sovereign Lord the King, 3 October 1734, which was conveyed to Joseph Bryan 16 August 1744 and he to Edward Strode 14 May 1752. The land was located on Opequon Creek containing 360 acres. The land was part 'of a tract granted to Morgan Bryan for 1,250 acres.'
"Morgan Bryan's wife was Martha Strode, presumably Edward's sister. It is entirely plausible that the Edward Strode's made their way to Virginia with Morgan Bryan in the mid 1730's. Pennsylvania Archives III, Chester County Warranties of Land list Edward as selling 150 acres 29 January 1733. He presumably would do this to move to Virginia.
"There are land grants that show Edward transferring land to sons John and James in Frederick County (later Berkeley County), Virginia. A sale to John was for 400 acres, dated 4 April 1751.
"On 19 November 1761, Edward and Elinor, his wife, sold land on Opekon. On 7 June 1773, Edward Strode sold 360 acres to his son Jeremiah for L100. Elinor was still living in 1777 when she witnessed a deed. Bergen (Bergen Papers: Historic Record 12) quotes a letter dated 26 July 1786 that says, 'the Old Gentleman and Widow of Jeremiah Strode'. The old gentleman must have been Edward who would have been in his 90's at that time.
"Edward's age at death has been perpetuated at 108 years. There is no proof or mention of a year by anyone. It seems unlikely that he lived to1795, which would make him 105, if born in 1690. Capt. James Strode was living in Berkeley County and he died in 1795. He was a wealthy man and left a detailed will mentioning his third wife and children and grandchildren by his first two wives. No mention was made of a father. He surely would have made provisions for an aged father, if the father was alive. It seems likely to the author that Edward died after July 1786 and prior to 1795. If this is correct, Edward's age at death could have been 96 to 105, a very long life indeed. If he did live to be 108 (1690-1798) as perpetuated by tradition, he out lived four of his six children.
"There is very little hard evidence of what happened to Edward Strode's brothers, George, Samuel and William Strode. Elston theorizes that Samuel Strode lived in Chester County, Pennsylvania in the 1720's but moved to western Pennsylvania later. William, he suggests, lived in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. George seems to have disappeared.
"The Bryan-Boone traditions says that Morgan and Martha Strode Bryan had 5 children when they moved to Frederick County, Virginia, probably 1734. They had a total of nine children. The oldest was Joseph, who sold Edward Strode 360 acres of land in 1752.
"Elston quotes an article from the Virginia Historical Magazine that 'Alexander Ross and Morgan Bryan founded upon this grant a colony of friends, which flourished for many years in Frederick County.' The Hopewell congregation was formed in 1734 with the church located 5 miles north of Winchester on the Opequon River and was probably the first organization of any denomination in the valley of Virginia. Morgan Bryan obtained several grants of land in the vicinity of Winchester, which bear the date of 12 November 1735."

Notes for Mary Hogue:


Mary Hogue married Mark Hardin about 1709 in Prince William Co.,Virginia. Land records indicate that Mark Hardin's wife was named Mary. A long standing family tradition states that her maiden name was Hogue, however, no actual record of her antecedents has been found. Information presented in the Hardin Family History strongly suggests that Mark Hardin was already married to his wife, Mary, when he made his first land purchase in Northumberland County, Virginia. This suggests that he wasmarried prior to his arrival in Virginia. Thus, to date, no hard proof has been found that indicates Mary's surname was in fact "Hogue".

i. John Hardin, born Abt. 1710.

-----
Edward Strode and his wife and children that had escaped to France orHolland to join the Hueg onauts. Edward and his wife died on the PAYSAY,the children were bound out and a nephew Barna rd Strode was taken in by afamily they had met in France. The orphans fortune was held by Geo rgeStrode of New Jersey. When the boys were old enough they took their moneyand with many o f their friends went to Virginia to a grant of 100,000acres by the crown.

Sir William Strode had son Barnard (Barnet) he and his wife were beheadedin the Bloody Assize , Edward (son of William) escaped with invalid wife,five or six of his own children and Nephe w Barnard Jr.(son ofBarnard-Barnet) they took him under his care along with a man namedMorga n Bryan. Bryan marries a Strode and daughters marry the Boone Boys(Daniel and Edward) Thing s are pretty intresting in the Stroude line.They also founded Stroudsburg, PA.
-----
Warinus arrived in England with WIlliam I in 1066 and was awarded aKnighthood and lands for h is efforts on the his behalf of the new King.His heir was William whose heir was Johm then Hu gh then Robert, then Johnthen Nicholas. The Leiger Book of Abbotsbury has a listing for Nicho lasde Strode Knight in 1249. John was brother to Nicholas.. Nicholas marriedBeatrix daughte r of John de Bitton, Knight. Heir of Nicholas was Hugh,then the family moved to Parnham. Unde rstand that many of these menmarried 2 or more times and had a bunch of children so by the 12 00s'there were a bunch of Strodes around. Heir of hugh was Henry who marriedMaud daughter an d heir of De Bauprea. In 1361 the family is mentioned bya bishop . Henry, Maud, their son Joh n and daughter Joan. Hugh was heirof Henry, and married Beatrix de Button and Had son Henry , Edmund anddaughter Jane. In the forty fourth year of the riegn of Edward III, Hughde Strod e is mentioned as being granted the land of Strode in Lidlinchfor life at the rent of 4 marks . Edmund was brother to the Heir of Hughlands and was given a grant of land of his own. Richa rd was the heir andhe married Elizabeth Brent. They moved to Parnham. Richard again marriedaf ter Elizabeth's death to Elizabeth Chaldecot. William de Strode was sonand heir to Richard an d married Alys daughter and heir of Roger ofLedred. William de Strode married Alianor daughte r of John Cheney. Hisheir was RIchard his other sons were WIlliam and John. RIchard diedwitho ut male issue so WIlliam became heir.
Hohn Collinson has a book titled the HISTORY OF WEST CRANMORE. Hohn deStrode was the progenit or of the Shepton Mallet Strodes in CountySomerset we are interested in. He married Hoan Okel e his son and heir wasWalter Strode. Walter's heir was Thomas Strode. His heir was Edwardstro de born about 1515. He Married Alice Whiting at Somerset. The LDSAncestry file reports that t heir children all born at Shepton Mallet wereJohn, Agnes, Thomas, Richard, Anne, Jone, Edward , Thomas, and William.Edward died on 3 March 1555. His heir was WIlliam Strode. He marriedEli zabeth Upton their children were; Geoffrey, George, Mary, Thomasine,WIlliam, and Thomasine. H is heir was William Strode born in 1589 inShepton Mallet. He married Joan Barnard in 1621. Th eir children wereWIlliam, Edwared, John, Edward, Elizabeth, Jane, Johanna, Essex, Barnardan d Mary. In Richard Symond's diary it is said that "William Strode livedat Barrington, 3 Myl e from LLminister. The strodes served over 200 yearsas member of Parliament from Somerset Cou nty.
Our WIlliam distinguished himself by opposition to the King's authorityin Somersetshire. He w as a source of trouble and annoyance to the King,Bishop and Sheriff. His funeral was held i n 1666. When Charles I becameKing of England their was a strong protestant presence in Parlia ment .WIlliam Strode was one of those members. In 1640 the confidence in theKing was at a ver y low level and it was decided that he could not betrusted and the country was in danger of a narchy. During the parliamentrydebate the kings friends became known a Royalists and those ag ainst himwere Parliamentarians. The 19 propostions of parliament were put to theking and woul d have mand the King a puppet. At that point CharlesI choseto draw the sword and the situatio n reached it's climax on thebattlefield in a storm of violence. WIlliam Strode was a weatlh y landowneer and had been kind to rich and poor alike and when the Royalistsshowed up in forc e in Shepton Mallet. WIlliam his son and two others rodeto meet the troops. There was an alte rcation and WIlliam was arrestedwhich angered the local townsmen an peasants. The Royalists r ode out oftown leaving WIlliam in the custody of the Sherrif and he had to letWIlliam go beca use of the hostility of the populace. WIlliam went on togather over 2,000 troops and was par t of the siege of Wells. WIlliamStrode had by that time become Col. Strode. After the captur e andbeheading of Charles I the country side became more peaceful andprosperous. The Strode s were quiet for a time and then along came theDuke of Monmouth and his abortive attempt fo r the Crown. As Monmouth waspro protestant the Strode family heavily favored him and entertai ned himat Barrington in the year 1680. By that time Col WIlliam had died and hisheir was Will iam Strode and his brother openly gave arms and money toMonmouth to help his attempt to captu re the crown which failed. The Kingwas justly angered and ordered that Col. Kirke go to Somer setshire to"teach the rebels a lesson". Kirk and his forces extorted large sums ofmoney fro m the wealthy and the poor were sentenced without trial andhanged. King James II feeling tha t many rich delinquents had escaped formoney sent Lord Chief Justice Jeffreys into the West C ounty. He executedupward to 300 persons had many more whipped, imprisoned and sent to theAmer ican Plantations as slaves. Edward Strode who had given Monmouth onehundred guineas and had p rovided shelter while he was on the run wasgranted a pardon, solely through his ability to Pennsylvania y for it.
Perry, Octavia J. worte A Saga of Strodes and Strodes, Deford and Co.,Baltimore Maryland, 196 6. P 45 says that Bernard Strode, the fifth son ofWIlliam and Joan Barnard was beheaded but f ull substantiation is lacking.On 10th of March 1686 an amnesty or proclamation of pardon wa s issued forall those involved in the rebellion led by Monmouth. Edward Strode ofDownside h e survived the times and remained at Downside, undoubtedly dueto his wealth. Photos taken a t the Rectory of St. Peter and St. PaulChurch in Shepton Mallet in 1986 provide proof that h e survived the time.It states that Joan Strrode of Downside England who had by him 10childre n . This is important to Edward's family (1630-1703) There isanother improtant plaque in Shep ton-Mallet parish church which says hererelieth Edward Strode of Downside, he departed this l ife the 23rd of Oct1703 at the age of 73 years. Edward's will mentions son John and 4daughter s but more improtantly it says "my son Edward, deceased". Soapparently the Edward we are foll owing is the son of the Edward thatassisted Monmouth. He did escape to France or Holland du e to what appearsreligious persecution and took the PaySay to the Americas he and his wifedie d on the voyage and yes their daughter grew up with the Bryan childrenand eventually marrie d one of the sons.
In a book called The Gosney Family by Georgia G. Winda it states that"The Bryans and a famil y named Strode who were Hollanders but who wereliving in France, were Protestants and had t o flee from their home due toReligious persecution; came to America on the same boat. The Str odeparents died on the voyage "leaving more than three children" and goes onto mention the yo ungest Martha, Jeremiah and Samuel. They were in ChesterCounty when Morgan Bryan married Mart ha Strode in 1719. When the orphenedStrode boys grew up and gathered their inheritance whic h had been held intrust for them they with the Bryans and others apparently left ChesterCount y, Penn. in 1734/35 when they received a grant of 100,000 acres inVirgina, and settled on lan d which eventually became Berkeley County,West Virginia. Edward Strode was believed to be mar ried to EleanorShepard and he was born in France apparently in 1690, his children allapparent ly born in Chester County Penn were:
Susannah
Edward
Letitia
James

Notes for Martin Hardouin:


Martin Hardin (asa Hardewyn) was born before 1650 (possibly 1645). He was probably born in France, but possibly in Fordham, Suffolk Co, NY. On 05Mar1671 (or same date in 1669 or 1670), possibly in DRC New York, New York he married Madeleine Du Sauchoy. Very little evidence, but strong family tradition states that Martin was born in Rouen, France and emmigrated to US some time after the marriage. Nonetheless, it is accepted that both the Hardin and Du Sauchoy families were French Huguenots. They had five known children:
Abraham Hardin (twin, christened 15May1673)
Issac Hardin (twin, christened 15May1673)
Elizabeth [Lysbeth] Hardin (christened 19Feb1676)
Jacob Hardin (ch 13Mar1678)
Marcus Hardin (ch 26Mar1681)
Martin Hardin is believed to have died c1706 in the part of King George County, VA which later became Prince William County. Burial information is unkown.
-
Martin Hardin was living in Fordham in 1671. On March 2, 1676, Magdaleen de Souson , wife of Martin Hardewyn was admitted to the Dutch Church in New York. By 1680 Martin Hardin had moved to Staten Island , for on Feb. 7, 1680, he sued Charles Smith there for debts. 1681 is the last year that Martin Hardin appears in the records of Staten island.
-
It is possible that he moved prior to 1700 to New Jersey, for a Martin Hardin ( possibly a 6th child) married Hannah Hunt Jan. 4, 1714, at Christ Church, Philidelphia, and on Dec. 29, 1719, was one of
the men who inventoried the estate of Samuel Hunt, decd. of Maidenhead, Hunterdon Co. N. J.
-
This same Martin Hardin, probably a brother of Mark who came to Virginia, made his will June 10, 1764, in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, mentioning his wife Catherine (probably a second wife) sons Martin and Samuel, and daughters Susannah Swerthorn and Anne Tomson. A son Thomas had preceeded him, leaving a will April 8, 1755.

Jan, his wife and five children arrived in the ship Fox at New Netherlandon 12 April 1662. H e came from Thielerwardt, a fortified town inGelderland, Holland, and his wife from Meppelen , Province of Drenth,where they were married and where their children were born. The familyna me was derived from Meteren, a town in Holland.
Upon the death of Joost Adrienceson of 'Boswick', Long Island, about1685, Jan Joosten Van M eteren was appointed administrator, tutor ofdecedent's children and arbitrator in proceeding s regarding the sale ofsome land in Hurley, which had been sold to Derick Schepmoes by Adrien ceduring his lifetime.
Jan Joosten Van Meteren, with his family, settled at Wiltwyck duringthe summer of 1662, bu t he is not noted in the activities of thecommunity until 7 June 1663 when the Indians raide d the settlement andcarried off women and children into captivity. Among the prisoners wereJa n's wife and two of his children, Joost Janse being one of them. He isnot named in Captain Kr ieger's journal of the rescue expedition, but itis elsewhere stated that due to his three mon ths' association with theIndians at the time of his captivity, Joost Janse had knowledge of t heirhabits, trails, plans and war feuds with other tribes, and was soimpressed with a desir e for their adventurous life.
Jan Joosten's name appears on the list of inhabitants who subscribed tothe Oath of Allegian ce, due to a change in the sovereignty of thecountry, between the 21st and 26th of October 16 64. After this datefrequent notices of him occur upon the records of Kingston, as a farmer,an d as a man of growing importance in civil and religious matters.
Joost Janse was elected an Elder of the Church in 1667. During thetrouble in Wiltwyck durin g that year, caused by the offensiveness of thesoldiers of the English garrison, he with thre e other citizens acted asmediators in the dispute and were able to conciliate the inhabitants ,thus preventing violence to lives and property.
The first instance of his purchase of land appears in a record whichreads 'Jan Joosten ha d from Governor Lovelace a deed for a lot, dated 20March 1671, in Marbletown' and 'on 11 Octo ber 1671 received confirmationof his 30 acre lot in Marbletown.'
He was selected on 6 January 1673 as one of the four magistrates ofHurley and Marbletown t o supervise the merging of the village of NieuwDorp into those of Hurley and Marbletown unde r the English rule. Theother magistrates were: Jan Broerson, Louis DuBois, and RoelofHendrick son. Notwithstanding the change of government Jan was continuedin that civil office until th e return of Dutch supremacy in 1675, whenGovernor Colve reappointed him to serve for anothe r term.
He was named Justice of Peace for Esopus, and was present at the Courtof Assizes in New Yor k from 4 to 6 October 1682.
Maeyken, wife of Jan Joosten, was named as a beneficiary in the Will ofEvardt Pary dated 2 6 March 1675 [Ulster Co. Probate Records].
Jan Joosten Van Meteren obtained land grants in the Province of EastJersey through a perio d extending from 1689 to the year of his death,1706 2E In company with his son-in-law, Jan Ha mel, who had married hisdaughter Geertje Crom in 1682, Jan Joosten appeared in East Jersey wh erethey jointly bought on 18 October 1695 from Edward Hunlocke, the deputyGovernor, of Winger worth, Burlington County, a plantation of 500 acres,located at Lassa (or Lazy) Point on the D elaware River. Lassa Point wasabout 23 miles northeast of Philadelphia.
Jan Joosten next appears as an individual purchaser of certain lands inSomerset County, Ne w Jersey, deed passing title from Governor AndrewHamilton and Agnes, his wife, under date o f 13 September 1700 to JanJoosten of Marbletown, New York, yeoman, lying contiguous on the So uthbranch of the Raritan River near the present Somerville, New Jersey tothree other parcel s also granted. As a whole, the plantation aggregated1835 acres.

Notes for Louis Du Bois:


Louis Du Bois was baptized on 21 October 1626 at Lille, parish church of Wicres, France, the son of Chretien Du Bois (and possibly a Cornelia [Unknown).
Either with his parents or on his own he went to Mannheim, Germany in the Pfalz, German Palatinate. Abstracts of Mannheim Palatine Records translated by Louis Du Bois of Yardley, Pennsylvania in 1928 state: "In the year 1606, the Elector Frederick IV of the Palatinate, being anEvang elical Prince and foreseeing a religious war, built the fortified city of Mannheim at the confluence of the Neckar and Rhine Rivers. Soon after, in 1618, there broke out the devastating 'Thirty Years War' and then the youthful fortress of Mannheim was taken and destroyed by the Bavarian General Tilly.
The persecuted French Protestants were brotherly received in the German Evangelical country, particularly in the Rhineland. The Walloons were likewise welcomed in Mannheim and allowed to establish their own French Evangelical community with their own clergymen. For a time they were united with the German Evangelical Reformed church, which union was made with the understanding that services and Holy Communion should be held in the French language in the Spring and Autumn.
"The civil and church records of Mannheim do not go back beyond the year 1621, the date of the city's destruction. It is only at a later date that the records of the French Protestants are to be found inscribed by French clergymen in the German church book of records.
"The name Du Bois is found for the first time in 1653.... Louis Du Bois, son of the late Chretien DuBois, resident of Wicres in the vicinity of La Bassee, of the first part, and Catharine Blanchan, daughter of Mathieu Blanchan, bourgeois of Mannheim, of the second part, were married at the French (Protestant) Church of Mannheim (in the Pfalz, German Palatinate), the 10th of October 1655.
