Notes:

Samuel was listed on the 1673 Dutch Census at Hempstead, NY and owned property in Hempstead from 1662 and lived in the area most of his life. Transactions in 1703 show that he owned slaves. In 1685, he was reported to be owning 240 acres of land. The 1698 Census at Hempstead, NY lists six of his nine children.

"New York Surrogate 8-305: Adm. Samuel Denton, late of Hempstead, intestate March 20, 1713 to his sons Samuel and Jonas." Papers filed with the clerk in Court of Appeals, Albany, NY named a daughter, "Hannah, wife of Thomas Treadwell," also spelled Tredwell.

From the "Tennessee Valley Historical Review:" Hempstead town records show that Samuel Denton and others took up land, 50 acres each, on the same terms as the first proprietors. In 1663, jointly with Thomas Rushmour, Samuel Denton obtained all rights and privileges upon Matthew Garrison's Neck and at Mattinacock, from Jeremy Wood of Hempstead. On April 18, 1665, John Smith of Hempstead sold to "my son-in-law Samuel Denton" certain lands. In 1698 he was called Samuel Denton, Senior. A deed of gifts from Samuel Denton of Hempstead, Yeoman, in consideration of "paternal love and affection I have and do bear toward my well-beloved son James Denton of Hempstead, Yeoman" to land within the township of Hempstead. December 16, 1710.

The date of Samuel's inventory was March 15, 1713 and was taken by Obediah Volintine and James Serion. "March 10, 1713, Hempstead. Mary Denton ye widdow and Relict of Samuel Denton, late of Hempstead in Queens County, doth for divers good causes and consideration hereunto moving, refuses to administer upon the estate of her deceased husband, Samuel Denton." So the administration was granted to Samuel and Jonas Denton, sons of said deceased. The records pertaining to the administration of the estate clearly show receipts from the children calling each by name. Therefore we have a definite list of the children of Samuel and Mary Smith Denton.

  • RICHARD DENTON, the founding minister of Stamford and

erroneously referred to as such for Hempstead, was termed by Cotton Mather a Yorkshire man who had previously ministered there at Halifax Magnalia Christi I:398). Hempstead's present- day expert, Arthur S. Wardwell, has kindly sent for this article the names of Yorkshire men from Halifax and vicinity who were among the fifty original proprietors of Hempstead: Thomas Armitage {Bradford}+, John Lum and his half-brother JONAS HALSTEAD, John Strickland, the five Woods (Edmond {Shelf} Jonas {Oram}, Jonas {Halifax}, Jeremiah, and Timothy), Robert Dean, and Stephen Hudson; among the later arrivals there were the Rev. Richard Denton and his three sons about 1656, Richard Brutnell, Jonas Holdsworth, and Alexander Knowles. The discovery of Rock Smith's 1674 deposition and the use therein of the Scottish term "liner" is perhaps suggestive of a similar origin near the English-Scottish border.

+ The names in Brackets refer to the town or parish from which they came.
