350 There is no question whatever as to the antiquity of the English branches of the Cleveland family, which traces to one Thorkil de Cliveland, whose name appears in history about the time of the Normanconquest ; and from that time coming down through the centuries there were those bearing the surname in some of its various orthographical forms who were peers, dukes and earls, titles conferred by sovereigns as marks of royal favor, for deeds of valor in the wars or service to the crown in official station. With titles thjere also were coats-of-arms, some of them suggesting an ancient Welsh origin ; and while all of these marks of distinction were put away when the immigrant American ancestor crossed the Atlantic to the shores of this country, his numerous descendants look with satisfaction on these emblems of gentility in their family in ancient times. That which appears to be the accepted coat- of-arms of the Cleveland family of the branch under consideration in this place is thus described in Burke's "Peerage" : "Per chevron sable and ermine, a chevron engrailed counter- changed." Crest : A demi old man proper, habited azure, having on a cap gules turned up with a fair front holding in the dexter hand a spear, headed argent, on the top of which is fixed a line proper, passing behind him, and coiled up in the sinister hand." Burke gives no motto, but three such at least are inscribed on the scrolls accompanying the arms : "Pro Deo at Patria"—For God and Country; "Semel et Semper"—Once and Always ; "Vin- cit Armor Patriœ"—Love of Country Conquers.

Even greater antiquity is accorded the Cleveland family than that suggested in a preceding paragraph, if we may accept the conclusions of students whose researches have carried back into the remote ages antedating the Christian era to B. C. 55. to Cœsar, who led the Romans into Britain and subdued the aborigines, which conquest was made complete A. D. 72. Then the district now known as Cleveland,in Yorkshire, England, was given the name Caluvium, which name by the time of the Norman conquest, 1066, had become Cliveland—a name descriptive of the region—and in the course of time became Cleveland, as now known, the seat of the family in the north riding of Yorkshire.

Such in brief is a mere outline of pre-Amer- ican history of the Cleveland ancestor who transplanted the name into the fertile region of New England in the year 1635, and from whom has sprung a numerous family of descendants, now scattered from ocean to ocean, from the far north to the gulf on the extreme south : and towns and cities have been named in allusion to his descendants, while one who bears this honorable name has been twice elevated to the highest seat in our national government—in its character and dignity a seat as exalted as that of any foreign potentate.

(I) Moyses Cleaveland—Moses Cleveland —the common ancestor of all who bear this surname and are of New England origin, went from Ipswich, Suffolk county, England, to London, and thence sailed for America in the year 1635, landing at Plymouth or Boston, then being, according to family tradition, about eleven years old, for the court files in Woburn in 1663 state his age as thirty-nine. There are various traditions regarding his immigration to America, and the question never has been settled satisfactorily ; and we only know that he was a boy of less than twelve years when he came to this country. He settled in Woburn and was admitted freeman there in 1643, had lands granted him, was a member of the trainband, married and died there. He died January 9, 1701-02. He married, September 26, 1648, Ann Winn, of whom one tradition says that she was born in Wales, and another in England, about 1626, and died in Woburn before May 6, 1682. The 1ccords of b1rths, deaths and marriages for Woburn mentions their eleven children as follows: 1. Moses, born September i, 1651, died before October 30, 1717; married, October 4, 1676, Ruth Norton. He was a soldier in King Philip's war. 2. Hannah, born August 4, 1653 ; married, September 24, 1677, Thomas Henshaw, a soldier in King Philip's war. 3. Aaron, born January 10, 1655, died September 14, 1716; married (first) September 26, 1675, Dorcas Wilson; (second) about 1714-15, Prudence _____. He was a soldier in King Philip's war. 4. Samuel, born June 9, 1657 (see post). 5. Miriam, born July 10, 1659, died August 31, 1745; married, December 10, 1683, Thomas Foskett, son of John and Elizabeth (Leech) Foskett. 6. Joanna, born September 19, 1661, died March 12, 1667. 7. Edward, born May 20, 1664, died Pomfret, Connecticut, 1746; married (first) about 1684, Deliverance Palmer; (second) January 1, 1722, Zeruiah Church. 8. Josiah, born February 26, 1666-67, died Canterbury, Connecticut, April 26, 1709; married, about 1689, Mary Bates. 9. Isaac, born May 11, 1669, died Norwich, Connecticut, August 10, 1714; married, July 17-18, 1699, Mrs. Elizabeth Curtis, widow of John Curtis and daughter of Samuel and Mary Pierce. 10. Joanna, born April 5, 1670, died Westfield, Massachusetts, March 18, 1758; married, May 28, 1690, Joseph Keyes. 11. Enoch, born August 1, 1671, died August 1, 1729: married (first) October 9, 1695, Elizabeth Counce; (second) July 9, 1719, Elizabeth Wright.

361 FAMILY 4. 4. DANIEL2 Comstock [William1], m. Paltiah, daughter of John Elderkin. Caulkins (History of Norwich) says John Elderkin,carpenter and miller, the first proprietor of the "Cove," emigrated to America in 1637, coming first to Lynn and then to Dedham. Mr. W. W. Chapin of Providence, says he was in Providence "about 1650 when Daniel2 Comstock was here. As Elderkin must have had a family at the time, this would furnish a motive for the migration of Daniel from Providence to New London." (See Note II.)

Daniel2 Comstock, 29 Jan., 1646, acknowledges a free grant of 25 A. from Providence.

Daniel2 Comstock, Providence, 24 June, 1648, and other young men arrested for giving a false Indian alarm.

Benjamin Smith and Dan. Cumbstock propound their houses with their land to the town (Providence) for sale, 2 June, 1655.

Administration to widow Paltiell to bring up children, till Court order otherwise.

Of the children given below those marked with a star are given in Blake's Later History of the ist Church of Christ, New London, as the children of G. Comstock, and Baker's Montville follows Blake, calling their father Gideon. But as there is no other trace of such a Gideon, and as it is known that Daniel2 had a son Daniel3 and four daughters, the children below are probably all of Daniel.2

On Dec. 17, 1697, Peeter Strickland receipts to his brother-in- law Daniel Comstock, administrator of the estate of his father Daniel Comstock, for twelve pounds, for Samuel Young and Thomas Halliox of Southold, L. I., as their wives' part of the estate of their father Daniel Comstock, deceased.

The Comstock Cemetery is located on n portion of this land. Soon after he settled on his purchase a bounty was offered on the inhabitants of New London of twenty shillings per head for wolves killed.

Comstock John
369 FAMILY 93. 219. John Comstock [Kingsland4]. He came from Norwich West Farms to Wyoming, Pa. He was one of the "Forty" or first settlers at Kingston, as was also Peter Comstock. Both were on the roll of 2d June, 1769, of the 200 first settlers at Wyoming. Children:

609, Kingsley, and 610, Robert, were killed in Lt.-Col. Dorrance's regiment at the Wyoming massacre, 3 July, 1778; 611. Eleanor, b. 1763, m. Ambrose Gaylord; 612. Peleg, Family 3253.; 613. Elijah.

JOHN COMSTOCK was a native of Norwich (West Farms), New London County, Connecticut. He early became a member of The Susquehanna Company; was one of the original Wyoming settlers under the auspices ofthat company in 1762 (see page 403< Vol. I), and presumably was here also in 1763 at the time of the massacre of the settlers at Mill Creek by the Indians. He was also one of the "First Forty" settlers of 1789 (see page 473), and thereby became entitled to a share of the lands in Kingston Township—which in due time he received. He was at Fort Durkee, Wilkes-Barre, during the Summer and Autumn of 1709 (see pages 497 and 609), and was one of the company of New Knglanders occupying the fort when it was surrendered to the Pennamites. He was on the ground again in June, 1770 (see page 658), and was one of those who marched to the Valley in July, 1771, under the command of Capt. Zebulon Butler to besiege the Pennamites. During the Spring and Summer of 1772 he seems to have been absent from the Valley, but in September of that year he returned (see page 750 and 751), and shortly afterwards established himself on his lands in Kingston. In May, 1773, as one of the agents for a number of proprietors in the Susquehanna Purchase, he aided in laying out the township of Newport (see page 770, and the map facing page 408), and became one of the original proprietors in the town.

Shortly afterwards Mr. Comstock returned to Connecticut where his family was still residing, and subsequently his elder son, Kingsley Comstock, came to Kingston and took up his residence on his father's lands there. His name appears in the Kingston tax-list for 1776, but in that year his father and the other members of the latter's family came to Kingston, and Kingsley Comstock removed to his father's lands in Newport—which lay within the bounds of "Hanover District" of Westmoreland. Kingsley Comstock's name appears, therefore, in the tax-lists of Hanover for the years 1777 and 1778: and JohnComstock's name appears in the lists of Kingston for 1777, 1778, 1780 and 1781 (the only lists now in existence). Kingsley Comstock was a private in the 5th (or Hanover) Company of the 24th Regiment,and according to Miner ("History of Wyoming", Appendix, page 60) fell in the battle of Wyoming. Letters of administration upon his estate were granted to his father by the Probate Court of Westmoreland, November 30, 1780.

John Comstock was established and commissioned Ensign of the 1st Alarm List Company in October, 1777. On the 1st or 2d of July, 1778, he removed his family from their home to Forty Fort, and on the .Id of July he and his younger son, Robert, marched out with the other patriots to the battle-field on Abraham s Plains. The son fell early in the battle, but the father escaped from the field when therout began. Becoming exhausted in his flight, he flung himself down behind a fallen tree. Presently two Indians sprang upon it, intent on something in the distance, and as they jumped to the ground to go on their way they brushed aside the bushes under which Comstock lay concealed; but they did not see him. When night came on he made his way to Forty Fort. Later he fled from the Valley with the members of his family who were in Fortv Fort, but on the 4th of the following August he returned to Wilkes-Barre in the body of militia under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Butler, and was in service here until at least the 1st of October. Later he returned, with his family, to his home in Kingston, where he continued to live until his death in the Spring of 1783.

The children of John Comstock were as follows: Kingsley, Robert, Rachel (who became the wife of Isaac Parker prior to August, 1787), Margaret (who became the wife of William Stager prior to August, 1787), Elizabeth, Prudence, Mary and Eleanor. The last named (born in 1763) became the wife of Ambrose Gaylord (born in November, 1749), eldest child of Justus Gaylord, Sr., an early settler in Wyoming. Ambrose Gaylord and his brother, Justus Gaylord, Jr., were members of Captain Ransom's Westmoreland Independent Company, and later were members of Captain Spalding's company—serving therein until the close of the war. Ambrose Gaylord was in Wilkes-Barre in 1781, shortly after which he was married to Eleanor Comstock. About 1787 they settled in what is now Braintrim, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania,where they lived the remainder of their years. In 17S8 Mr. Gaylord was elected and commissioned Lieutenant of the 1st Company, 2d Battalion, Luzerne County Militia, and this office he held for several years. He died at Braintrim June 12, 1844, and was survived by his wife Eleanor (who was still living in June, 1845) and several children.

No. Parish, New London, Nov. 20, 1728, dau. of John and Johannah (Williams) Vibber. If the dates are correct she married at 11 years of age. Margaret Vibber Comstock was living in Exeter Township, Pa., Dec., 1810. The record that John married Sarah Crasy, who d. Chesire, Conn., Jan. 28, 1779, cannot be correct, as Margaret and her son Peleg Comstock sold lands after John's death.

John Comstock came from Norwich, West Farms, Conn., to Wyoming, Pa. He was an Ensign in the First Alarm Company and was engaged in the "Wyoming Massacre." He escaped by concealing himself behind a fallen log. (Brewster History, Kingston, Pa., p. 46.) He was one of the "Forty," or first settlers at Kingston and was on the roll June 2, 1769.

They "Harvey Book," p. 33, states that John Comstock, Cyprian Lothrop and Captain Alden, representing a number of Connecticut proprietors in the Susquehanna purchase, located and laid out the town ofNewport, west of and adjoing Hanover (Pa.).

William Comstock, the ancestor of the Comstock families in Montville, Miss Caulkins says, "came from Hartford in 1649, and lived to old age in his house upon Post Hill," New London. His wife Elizabeth was aged fifty-five in 1663. He is supposed to have come to this country between the years 1630 and 1637, and first settled near Boston and afterwards removed to Hartford. His property in New Londonwas inherited by his son Daniel and grandson William, son of John. Miss Caulkins thinks it probable that Daniel and John were the only children of William Comstock, Sr.

From sources which appear reliable, it would appear that William Comstock and Elizabeth, his wife, had six children when he removed to Hartford, and all born previous to his immigration into this country, vix.: John, Elizabetlh, Daniel, Samuel, Christopher, and Gideon. John settled in Lyme, Samuel in Providence, Daniel and Gideon in New London, and Christopher in Norwalk. That Samuel settled in Providence is quite certain, for the records show that about 1640, or a little subsequent to that time, Daniel Comstock claimed twenty-five acres of land in Providence, R.I. It is said that he was onlyalbout 10 years old at the time, and went to New London with a friend and settled there. At this time Samuel was in trouble at Hartford, and was released from his bond to keep the peace in 1649. On March 1, 1654, Samuel Comstock appears upon the records at Providence as the purchaser of a house and lot, and in 1655 he appears to have had some difficulty, and the person who had given bonds for himwas allowed to settle the case. This Samuel Comstock married Ann ________ of Providence in 1650. He had a son, Samuel, born ______ 1654, and great-grandson Gideon, b. 4 Nov., 1709.

Noah D. Comstock, a descendant of Samuel of the seventh generation, was a resident of Arcadia, Wis., in 1877.

John Comstock m. Abigail _______ and has had numerous descendants.

Gideon Comstock had children baptized in New London 9 April, 1671, viz.: Daniel, Mary, Sarah, IIope, Zipporah, Elizabeth, Bethia, and Hannah. On the 6 Nov., 1671, was baptized Patience; Bethia m. Daniel Stebbins.

392 The Lancashire Branch (of the Copelands) has been traced back to 1500. One section living in Dolphin Leigh had very hard luck. The head of this Branch, Lawrence Copeland was a solid Roundhead, and for his religious faith he appears to have died. His estates were sequestered by the Crown for recusancy. The eldest son Robert, tried to obtain these estates; but, the result.... 'Claim allowed with arrears from the fathers death on fuller proof of the death and on the sons taking the Oath of Adjuration'' Robert does not appear to have done this and it is believed he and his brother, Lawrence, sailed to America. The other two sons, John and Thomas, are believed to have jolned their relatives in Staffordshire.' It is generally believed that Lawrence is the one who settled in Braintree, Mass. in 1630; and that John came to Virginia in 1635.' Note: Lawrence is the head of a large family of Copelands in New England, moving westward, but there is no evidence that- - had any children. Thomas wentto Barbados and some of his sisters went to Virginia as spelled out in his will.

ROUNDHEADS the name given to the supporters of the parliamentary cause during the English civil war. Many Puritans, scorning gentlemen's fashions of the 17th century, wore their hair closely cropped.In 1641 bewigged or long-haired royalists insulted their Puritan opponents in Parliament by calling them Roundheads. The term was later applied to all supporters of the parliamentary rebellion, even though the leader of the Roundheads, Oliver Cromwell, wore his hair long.

Note that the dates don't agree, did John go to Virginia before his father was killed?

Massachusettes Branch Of Copelands

of Mrs. Sarah I.C. Matheson

The "emigrant" Lawrence Copeland came to Boston and settled in Braintree, Mass. sometime in the 1630's. He married late in life. He probably like most of the Massachusetts settlers, emigrated from the east coast of England. There is quite a clan of Copelands in the vicinity of Newcastle, England and have been for a very long time. The name crops up in the 13th century and probably earlier, then spelled Coupland and Couplaunde. John and William seem to be favorite names. Their crest is a 'Swan with a broken wing.'

Among the Quincy inscriptions is the following: "In memory of Mr. Lawrence Copeland,who died Dec.30,1699 with 100 years of age".settled in Brainstree (Braintry), MA in 1637. Founder of northern branch of Copeland Family.

396 Dea. Jonathan Copp was the first deacon chosen by the church in the North Parish of New London, now called Montville Center Church, at its organization in 1722. He, with Capt. Thomas A very, Capt. Robert Denison, Mr. Samuel Allen, Mr. John Vibber, and Mr. Nathaniel Otis, with their wives, were the first covenanters, forming the nucleus for the future church of North Parish, and over this little flock in the wilderness Rev. James Hillhouse was ordained its pastor 3 Oct., 1722.

Some two or three years previous to the calling of Rev. James Hilllouse as pastor, this little band of Christian workers had met together on the Sabbath for divine worship with Deacon Copp as the probable leader. His farm lay in the northern part of the Parish, near the Norwich line, in what is now called Leffingwell Society.

Dea. Jonathan Copp was born 23 Feb., 1665, son of David Copp and Obedience Topliff. He came from Boston, but the exact date is not certainly known, probably soon after 1700. His children were all probably born before his removal here. He was married to Catherine Lay 18 Aug., 1690. He died 4 Nov., 1746. She died 24 May, 1701. Both were buried in the church cemetery in the rear of the First Church,on Raymond Hill.
