Note on Husband: Richard HARTSHORNE







The Hartshorne family of Monmouth County trace their ancestry to Richard Hartshorne, the son of William Hartshorne, of Leicestershire, England. Richard was a brother of Hugh Hartshorne, who was a citizen of London, and was admitted to the freedom of the Skinners' Company. Aug. 1, 1654. He was an "upholsterer" of Houndsditch, and is referred to sometimes as a "skinner," an "upholsterer," and as a "merchant." He was one of the Twenty-four Proprietors of East Jersey, named in the confirmatory grant of March 14, 16S2-3, from the Duke of York. He died April 25. 16S4, aged 55 years. There is no reason to suppose that he ever visited America. V. J. Archives, I., 366, 374, 383, 412, 528; Whitehead's East Jersey, 2d ed., 118, 178; V. Y. Gen. and Biog. Itccord, XIV., 95; Old Times in Old Monmouth, 12.


Richard Hartshorne was born Oct. 24, 1641, at Hathearne. Leicestershire, England; he married Margaret Carr, Nov. 27, 1670. Coming from London to America, in September, 1669, he located in East Jersey, and took up an extensive tract of land at Middletown and the Highlands of the Navesink (acquiring Sandy Hook in 1677), where he lavished a generous hospitality, as attested by George Fox and others, he being a Friend, and naturally partial to the traveling ministers of that persuasion. -Smith's Hist. X. J., 63. note; V. J. Archives, II., 329, note; Old Times in Old Monmouth. 12. He was Town Clerk of Middletown in 1675. Hist. Monmouth County, 519. In 1683 he was appointed Sheriff of Monmouth County, an honor he sought to decline. V. J. Archives. XIII.. 77. The precedent has not been followed to any extent. In 1683 he also became a member of Gov. Gawen Laurie's Council. In the same year he was elected to the Assembly, and in 16S6 was Speaker of that body, holding that position until October, 1693, and again, from February,

1696, to March, 1698, when he became a member of Gov. Jeremiah

Basse's Council. He continued in the Assembly also, and held both offices until the surrender of the Province to the Crown, in 1702. .V. J. Archives. I., 220, note. He was again elected to the Assembly from the Eastern Division in 1703 and 1704. He died in 1722. Old Tims in Old Monmouth. 291: Hist. Monmouth County, 534.

4. Mary, born 14th Sth mo. 1676; married Clayton;

8. Hugh, born 21st 6th mo. 1685; m. Catharine Tilton (.b. 14th 7th mo.

16S4), and had ch. Margaret, who m. Robert White, saddler; she d. 10th of Sth mo. 1747;

9. Sarah, born 3d 7th mo. 1687; married Taylor;

10, Richard, born 15th 12th mo. 1689;

11. Mercy, born 12th 5th mo. 1693; married William Lawrence. V. Y. Gen. and Biog. Record, XIV., 95. Robert and Esek appear to have carried on business together, in Monmouth county, in 1767. JY. J. Archives, XXV., 292.


Hugh, son of Richard, born J 685. as above, was foreman of the Monmouth County Grand Jury in 1711, and lived at Middletown. Old Times in Old Monmouth, 269, 291-2. His plantation of 600 acres at Middletown is advertised for sale in 17-14 by his executors Catharine Hartshorne

(presumably his widow), Robert Hartshorne, Joseph Field and William

Hartshorne, jun. .V. /. Archives, XII., 242. His children were: Margaret White, Rebecca Wright, Catherine Bowne, Richard, Sarah Van Brakle, Robert, Mary Garrison, Eliza, Mercy. V. Y. (int. and Biog. Record. It was probably the Robert Hartshorne just mentoined who was admitted to the bar in 1739, and who in 1744 was at Burlington, where he died early in 1761.


Hugh Hartshorne, Clerk of the Assembly in 1757, was doubtless the son of William (b. 1678-9, son of Richard); the latter died in 1746. and in 174S his executors advertised for sale "The High Lands of Navesinks and Sandy-Hook lying in Middletown. East Jersey, consisting of 2800 Acres," including "a good Dwelling-House, 40 Feet Long and 30 Feet broad, with Sash Windows, two good Stone Cellars under it. with three Kitchens adjoining, pleasantly situated upon Navesinks River." V. J. Archives, XII., 325, 467, 523. Hugh Hartshorne married Hannah Pattison in Burlington Monthly Meeting in 1741. Friends in Burlington by Amelia Mott Gummere, Philadelphia, 1884, 93. He was living in Burlington early in 1743, and was still there in 1755. JV. J. Archives, XII., 171, 467; XIX., 481. He was one of the signers of the N. J. currency in 1754-56. lb., VIII., Part II., 39, 230, 232. On April 18, 1758, he was allowed 26, 15, 2, for "39 Days Attendance as Clerk of the House of Representatives at this and another Sitting of the Assembly and for Copying the Laws and Votes for the Printer During the Said Sessions." lb.,

XVII., 170. This appears to have been the extent of his service as Clerk of the Assembly. In 17C6 he was at Bristol. Pa. N. J. Archives, XXV., 21.
