  • Barnabas Horton
  • Birth: 1600 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England
  • Death: Jul. 13, 1680 Southold, Suffolk County, New York, USA
  • One of the founders of Southold, Long Island, Puritan community leader Barnabas Horton was born in Mowsley (spelled "Mousely" in some accounts), Leicestershire c.1600, and is said to have brought his gravestone with him to the New World: a 3'x 5' slate slab pre-engraved in England with all but the date of his death. Very little is known of his early life, though he was "probably the son of Joseph Horton", according to the earliest Horton genealogy, which was published in 1876 by descendant George Firman Horton (1806-1886. Barnabas' mother was not unidentified in this genealogy, and remains so to this day for lack of reliable evidence.
  • Barnabas was twice married while still in England, and fathered two sons by his first wife, Anne Smith, whom he married in 1622: Joseph, born c.1625, and Benjamin. His second marriage, to Mary Langton, produced either seven or eight children. By some accounts he had emigrated to the New World c.1630 in the ship "Swallow", accompanied by Mary and the offspring of his first marriage. After previously living in Massachusetts and Connecticut, he settled in Southold, Long Island at age 38. He died there 42 years later at the age of 80. Described by one local historian as a powerfully-built, ruddy-faced, genial man, he was a baker by trade but possessed of a variety of other skills and talents which led to his success as a settler and community leader. His ledger-style gravestone, which covers a vault interment, had been re-lettered and given a new, more secure foundation during the 1800's by one of his many descendants, and when this historic Southold cemetery was vandalized in January 2004, it was among those which escaped damage. (See gravestone inscription below, which includes Horton's youngest son, Jonathan Horton, the first Captain of Calvary in the County of Suffolk, who was buried at his father's feet. Captain Jonathan Horton died "Feb. 23, AD 1707, Aged 60." BIO BY NIKITA BARLOW

  • The antiquity of the Horton family is well-proven. Long before the time of Henry Larey, Earl of Lincoln, who died in 1310, Robert De Horton manumitted a bondman to his manor of Horton. The name Horton in the Anglo-Saxon language means an inclosure or garden of vegetables. The name is evidently of Latin origin and has been known in England ever since the conquest. The first of the family in America of whom there is authentic record came from England in 1633-38. Thomas, Jeremiah and Barnabas Horton were among the early emigrants. Tradition says they were brothers.
  • ( II ) Barnabas Horton, son of Joseph Horton. was born in Mouseley, Leicestershire. England, July 13, 1600. He came to New England in the ship "Swallow," Captain Jeremy Horton, master and owner, in 1635-38, landed at Hampton, Massachusetts, went to New Haven, Connecticut, 1640, with wife Mary and sons Joseph and Benjamin. In October, 1640, he made a permanent settlement in what is now Southold, Long Island, New York, where his last eight children were born; the first two were born in England. Children: Joseph, of whom further ; Benjamin, married Anna Budd, sister of Jane, who was wife of Joseph Horton ; Caleb, married Abigail Hallock ; Joshua, married Mary Tuthill ; Jonathan, married Bethia Wells ; Hannah, married Barnabas Terrill ; Sarah, married Joseph Conklin ; Mary, married Joseph Budd, brother of Jane; Mercy, married Christopher Youngs; Abigail, married Charles Booth.
  • (Ill) Joseph (2). eldest son of Barnabas Horton, was born in Mouseley, England, about 1635, and was brought to New England by his parents. He resided in Southold near his father for several years after his marriage, but in 1664 moved to Rye, Westchester county, New York, where his father-in-law, John Budd, had previously settled. He was admitted a freeman of Connecticut colony, 1662. In 1671 he was chosen selectman of Rye. In 1678 he was justice of the peace, a lieutenant, later captain of militia, and also authorized by the general court to issue warrants and perform marriages. In 1695 he was vestryman of the church and in 1699 licensed to keep a house of entertainment. He was a miller, an occupation followed by several of his descendants. He married, about 1655, Jane, daughter of John Budd, one of the thirteen original Puritans, who settled Southold in 1640. Children, all but the last born at Southold, Long Island: Joseph, John, Samuel, David (of whom further), Abigail, married Roger Park ; Jeremiah.

  • Hortons in America makes some serious errors in the spouses of children of Barnabas Horton. I present the information below from Hortons in America, along with notes I have made. .... etc
  • BARNABAS HORTON, born in Mowsley, Leicestershire, England (old style). In 1622 he married Anne Smith of Stanion of Northamptonshire, England. She died, and he married Mary Langton. He emigrated to America in the ship Swallow, Captain Jeremy Horton, master and owner, in 1635 to 1638, landed at Hampton, Mass., where he owned a plot of ground.(*) He came to New Haven, 1640, with his wife, Mary, and two children, Joseph and Benjamin. He settled permanently on the east end of Long Island, now Southold, Suffolk County, N. Y., in October, 1640.
  • Children of first wife, Anne Smith:
    • 1. Joseph, born 1625; married Jane Budd, daughter of John Budd I.
    • [This is Jane-2 Budd, dau of the first John Budd, md Katherine Brown. She is sister of the Long Island Pioneer John-2 Budd, who married Mary Horton. nmt]
    • 2. Benjamin, born 1627; married Anna Budd, sister of Jane.
    • [This Benjamin married, first, Ann/Anna (____) Tooker/Tucker (sister of Christopher Youngs wife), former wife of John Youngs (see Torrey and Southold Town Records). Torrey assigns her no identity. She was the second wife of John Tooker/Tucker]
    • The McLaurin "Descendants of Barnabas Horton", 1990, indicates the proof for her identity as Ann-2, daughter of John-1 Budd, comes from an undated document where she and her brother John-2 Budd wrap up details from their father's estate. He gives no location for this document. I haven't found it in Southold records, perhaps it is in Rye records.
    • Benjamin's second wife was Mary Mapham. He apparently had no children by either wife, as his will provided for siblings, and mentions no children or grandchildren.
  • Children of second wife, Mary Langton:
    • 3. Caleb, born 1640; married Abigail Hallock.
    • Caleb's first wife, and probable mother of all of his children, is unknown. Even her first name eluded being recorded in any documents located so far. She is likely mother to all of Caleb's children, except possibly the youngest, Phebe.
    • There was a recorded marriage for a Caleb Horton to an Abigail Horton in 1697, but there were more than one Caleb Horton in 1697 to assign this marriage to. (In fact, McLaurin assigns the marriage to a nephew of Caleb-2.) Caleb married last, Esther, probably: (Crafford) [Wedge] [Homan] Horton. She is his wife referred to in his will. She is likely the Esther Homan, widow, as shown in the 1698 census. A Esther Horton witnessed the will of the daughter of Esther Homan (Deliverance Whitehair) in 1699.
    • 4. Joshua, born 1643; married Mary Tuthill.
    • [McLaurin presents data from a Wheeler genealogy which convincingly shows Joshua's wife was Mary Wheeler. Joshua was referred to as "brother" by a brother of Mary Wheeler in the distribution of a Wheeler matriarch's estate in Southampton. ]
    • (THE WHEELER GENEALOGY LISTS JOSIAH HORTON NOT JOSHUA HORTON - C.POMEROY)
    • 5. Jonathan, born 1648; married Bethia Wells.
    • [This couple identified in Ancestors of American Presidents, pg 18, for President Harrison.]
    • 6. Hannah, married Barnabas Terrill.
    • No, there was no Barnabas Terrill. The will of Barnabas gave: "to Hannah Tevalle 10 sheep as her full portion.". Hannah married 1) Thomas Hildreth abt 1648 2) Jonas Bower abt 1659 and 3) Thomas Trevally abt 1673. (See McLaurin, "Descendants of Barnabas Horton,", 1995, and/or: Hoff, NYGBR 123:210, 1992 "Additions & Corrrections", to NYGBR 120:74 (article about Peter Hildreth): Identity of Hannah, wife of Thomas Hildreth, Jonas Bower, and Thomas Trevally.
    • 7. Sarah, married Joseph Conklin.
    • [She married first, William Salmon (See TAG 21:246-253 for a very interesting review of the Horseneck lawsuit whereby family relationships were determined by many documents relative to this lawsuit that lasted for years. She had two children by William. She then married John Conklin, December 02, 1657. nmt]
    • [The persistent reports that the first John Budd SR had a son named Joseph Budd who married a Sarah Horton appear to be a complete sham. Sarah Horton, daughter of Barnabas, is comfortably with two husbands during her life, completely documented in the Horse Neck lawsuit documents. If she did "squeeze" in this marriage, she had no issue, as the various documents re the "orphans" in the lawsuits would have named them somewhere along the way. There is no Joseph in John Budd, SR's will of 1669. (there is in John Budd JR's will.) Sarah's son, Joseph Conklin, is referred to in Barnabas Horton's will of 1680. John Conklin outlived Sarah Horton, his wife. There is no such marriage in Torrey. This Joseph Budd appears to be a ghost and the Sarah so often cited for his wife likely not the daughter of Barnabas, or the whole marriage is just a complete sham. nmt]
    • For another interesting article on this branch of the family, see: Gale Ion Harris, TAG 1996:235-241 - Sarah (Salmon) (Edwards) Curtis of LI and Conn.
    • 8. Mary, married Joseph Budd, son of John Budd.
    • [Mary married JOHN-2 Budd, not Joseph. Mary was referred to as Mary Budd in Barnabas' will, so she definitely married a Budd. Torrey says Mary Horton married JOHN Budd, Jr. (1620-1684), son of John and Katherine (Brown) Budd. John Budd, Jr.'s will refers to wife Mary. I find no Joseph Budd that could be a possible match in the Budd tree. nmt]
    • 9. Mercy, married Christopher Youngs.
    • [Mercy md first John Youngs, son of Cpt Joseph (who was brother of Rev John), abt 1675/6 and had four children with him. She md second, Christopher Youngs Bet. 1689 - 1698, and had no children with him. See Youngs Genealogy, by Selah Youngs.] She is in the 1698 census with Christopher and her children, but he was their step-father (and first cousin to their natural father), not their father.
    • 10. Abigail, married Charles Booth.
    • The daughter Abigail is from Horton's in America and is not a daughter. She was Abigail Mapham, daughter of John and Mary (Hampton) Mapham. Her mother, Mary, was a wife of Benjamin-2 Horton. Her name as the widow "Mary Horton" led early researchers to believe she was Mary (Langton) Horton, probably leading to that misidentification of Abigail as a daughter of Barnabas.

Barnabas Horton was a younger son of Joseph Horton. He came to America about 1635. He had already been married to Anne Smith who had died in England. Then he married Mary Langton who came to this vast new country with him. By his first wife Barnabas had three children who also came to America with him. His second wife had seven children, some of whom were born in America.

Barnabas lived in Massachusetts for a while and then went to Long Island where he was one of the earliest settlers of Southold--on the tip of Long Island. The site of Barnabas Horton's house in Southold is marked with a historical marker.

  • PREFACE— INTRODUCTION.

We give Barnabas Horton as the Preface and Introduction to this little volume of Chronicles. He was probably the son of Joseph Horton, of Leicestershire, England, and born in the little hamlet of Mousely of that shire. Of his history before he came to America very little is known. He came over in the ship "Swallow" in 1633-38. He landed at Hampton, Mass. How long he remained at Hampton is not known. But in 1640 we find him with his wife and two children in New Haven, Conn., in company with the Rev. John Youngs, William Welles, Esq., Peter Hallock, John Tuthill, Richard Terry, Thomas Mapes, Matthias Corwin, Robert Ackerly, Jacob Corey, John Conklin, Isaac Arnold, and John Budd, and on the 21st day of Oct., 1640, assisted by the venerable Rev. John Davenport and Gov. Eaton, they organized themselves into a Congregational Church, and sailed to the east end of Long Island, now Southold. They had all been members of Puritan churches in England, and all had families with them except Peter Hallock. They doubtless had been on the island previous to this time and looked out their homes. On nearing the shore they cast lots to decide who should first set foot on the land. The lot fell on Peter Hallock, and the place where he stepped upon the land has ever since been known as Hallock' s Landing.

On coming ashore, they all knelt down and engaged in prayer, Peter Hallock leading, as had been determined by the lot. These were the first persons of any civilized nation that had ever attempted to settle on the east end of Long Island. See Griffith s Journal.

Barnabas Horton was a man of deep-toned piety, and a warm advocate of civil and religious freedom. He was one of the most prominent and influential men of Southold. He was for many years a magistrate, and several times a member of the General Court at New Haven and Harford. He built the first framed dwelling-house ever erected on the east of Long Island, and that house is still (1875) standing and occupied. It is a shingle-house, that is, shingles are used for weather-boards, and the sides have never been reshingled, and the roof but once, according to the statement of Jonathan Goldsmith Horton, the last Horton occupant of the old house.

VI Preface. — Introduction.

It is said that Barnabas Horton I. was large in stature, and of a ruddy complexion, and of fine social qualities.

His tombstone is of English blue marble, five feet long and about three feet wide. It is placed horizontally over the grave. The stone was re-lettered about fifty or sixty years ago by Jonathan G. Horton. It is elevated about eighteen inches from the ground, on a good stone base. The original base was of brick, but it had all crumbled down many years ago. The present base was put under the stone at the time it was re-lettered by Jonathan G. Horton.

The inscription surrounds the border of the stone, and reads as follows :

" Here lieth buried the body of Mr. Barnabas Horton, who was born at Mousely, Leicestershire, Old England, and died at Southold, on the 13th day of July, 1680, aged 80 years."

In the centre of the stone we find the Epitaph, as follows :

  • " Here lies my body tombed in dust
  • 'Till Christ shall come to raise it with the just;
  • My soul ascended to the throne of God,
  • Where with sweet Jesus now I make abode :
  • Then hasten after me, my dearest wife,
  • To be partaker of this blessed life ;
  • And you, dear children, all follow the Lord,
  • Hear and obey His public sacred word ;
  • And in your houses call upon His name,
  • For oft I have advised you to the same :
  • Then God will bless you with your children all,
  • And to this blessed place He will you call."

Heb. xi : 4, — " He being dead, yet speaketh."

It is said that this epitaph was written by himself, and that it, together with the inscription, date of his death excepted, was all put upon the stone before he died. He was the only one of the original thirteen who brought his tombstone with him, and this fact seems to indicate a commendable desire to see that his name and memory should not perish from the earth.

He was a property owner in Southold, Long Island in 1651. He was a town deputy between 1654 and 1661. He was a pilgrim, and with 12 other pilgrims he sailed from England, and landed first in Massachusetts. They moved to Southold, Long Island in 1640.

BARNABAS HORTON born 13 Jun 1600 in Mowsley, Leicestershire, England, died 1680 in Southold,Long Island, NY. Barnabas was a Puritan and decided to follow after Reverend Youngs when he,with some of his congregation, William Wells,Esq., Wm. Hallock, John Tuthill, Richard Terry, Thomas Mapes, Matthias Corwin, Robt. Ackerty, Jacob Corey, John Conklin, Isaac Arnold, John Budd and moved to America. Barnabas and his family wasn't long in joining them. They left in about 1635 aboard the ship "Swallow" and landed at Hampden, Massachussetts. In 1640, Barnabas, his wife, Mary, and two sons and daughter, Joseph, Benjamin and Ann left for New Haven,CT. On the 21st day of Oct 1640, assisted by Reverend John Davenport and Gov. Eaton, they organized themselves into a Congregational Church and sailed to the east end of Long Island, now Southold. They crossed Long Island Sound, sailed up Peconic Bay and came ashore at Founder's Landing. Barnabas died on the 13th day of July, 1680, aged eighty years. He was known as 'Barnabas, The Old Puritan." Barnabas married first in England, Ann Stanton Smith in about 1622. She died within a few years. They had sons:

Hampton, Massachusetts or Hampton, New Hampshire

There are two different places where Barnabas Horton is said to have first lived in the colonies. One source says "Hampton, Massachusetts" and the other says "Hampton, New Hampshire." This Hampton, Massachusetts is not to be confused with either Easthampton, Massachusetts or Hampden, Massachusetts, locations inland from the coast that were not settled until much later (Wikipedia: Easthampton and Hampden).

Hampton, New Hampshire was "one of four original New Hampshire townships chartered by the General Court of Massachusetts, which then held authority over the colony" (Wikipedia). That town was settled in 1638. It seems most probable that this is the Hampton at which Barnabas Horton immigrated. If so, that would peg his arrival as being not earlier than 1638. Since it is said that the ship Swallow was bringing immigrants to the colonies between 1633 and 1638, and since Barnabas Horton came on that ship and landed at Hampton, it would be most likely that he arrived there in 1638.

Barnabas Horton1,2,3,4,5,6 M, b. 13 June 1600, d. 13 July 1680

    Important Notes: It is important to note that for many decades, genealogists have noted Barnabas as the son of Joseph Horton & Mary Schuyler. According to Barnabas' tombstone, he was born in Mowsley, Licestershire, but at this point, we can find no proof as to Barnabas being the son of Joseph and Mary. As to the parents of Joseph Horton, They then go on to note the following:

- Henry de Horton born: circa 1220 [In 1270, Henry went to Leicestershire, England to act as a baliff for the de Morley and the de Gobion families. In 1277, he is found conveying a massauge and a Virgate of land in Kanoptoft to his son, Hugh. In 1279, he is listed as a "free tenant".] - Hugh de Horton born: circa 1240 at Horton, Northamptonshire, England - Henry de Horton born: circa 1270 at Horton, Northamptonshire, England [In 1329, Henry was listed in the Exchequer Lay Subsidy Rolls (a form of taxation on moveable goods). He paid 6 pounds 3 shillings and his son Hugh was assessed 3 pounds. This subsidy of 1327 was assessed to pay for the war of Edward III against Robert Bruce, ending in the treaty of Northampton, by which Scottish indepentence was recognized. Sometime in the 14th century the third generation of Horton's left Kanoptoft for Leichestershire. Henry is known as the progenator of this family in Leichestershire.] - Hugh de Horton born: ca 1300 in Kanopoft, Leicestershire, England [He was taxed in 1325 for the war of Edward III against Robert Bruce.] - John Horton born: ca 1330 born: ca 1300 in Kanopoft, Leicestershire, England.] - William de Horton born: ca 1370 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England - Richard de Horton born: ca 1410 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England - Richard de Horton born: ca 1450 [sons: Thomas biorn: ca 1480 & Richard born: ca 1485] - Thomas de Horton born: ca 1480 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England [Thomas was a church warden in 1526.] - Richard de Horton born: ca 1500 - Robert de Horton born: ca 1525 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England - William de Horton born: ca 1550 Firth House, Barkisland, Halifax, West Yorkshire, England married: Elizabeth Hanson Children: William Joshua Joseph born: ca 1578 Thomas Sarah Elizabeth - Joseph Horton born: ca 1578 married: ca 1599 Mary Schuyler Children: Barnabas born: 1600 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England Thomas born: ca 1602 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England Jeremiah born: ca 1604 Mowsley, Leicestershire, England

Again, there is no proof that we have seen to show Joseph as the father of Barnabas and there has not been found a christening record for Barnabas in Leicester or for that matter anywhere else. If the dates are correct, then it is possible that Joseph is the father, but again, we have seen no proof of this. Also, as shown above, we see that Joseph Horton who is born circa 1570's is the son of William Horton of Firth House in Barkisland, Yorkshire, but in John Burke's, A Genealogical and Heraldic history of the extinct and dormant baronetcies , second edition (London: Scott, Webster, Geary, Charter House Square 1841). On page 269, he states “William Horton, in Firth House in Barkisland, in the parish of Halifax, married Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Hanson, of Tooth Hill, in the same parish [her will bares the date 16th July, 1660] Issue: William, of Firth House, Barkisland, and afterwards, having purchased the estate 15 Charles I. of Howroyd, m. Elizabeth (whose will dated 13th July, 1670), daughter of Thomas Geldhill, of Barkisalnd, … Thomas of Barkislnad b. in 1651 William of Howroyd d. 19th February 1716 Thomas, merchant at Liverpool, died apparently without issue 30 March, 1660. Joshua Sarah m. to John Geldhill Elizabeth, who died in July, 1670 Susan m. Richard Hoyle

Thus, Burke does not show William of Firth House to have a son, Joseph, and William, given the above dates, would have been born maybe as early as 1580, much to late to be the father of Joseph, father of Barnabas. This then is not the lineage of Joseph of Mowsley. There has been references made of a House that was built adjacent to the church at Mowsley which was occupied by a Horton family for many generations. This house was eventually replaced by another house built on another corner of the same church property. There is, however, no evidence of the given names of the owners for a substantial time period. If this information is accurate, then Joseph would likely be of this family as well as Barnabas, whether or not they are father and son.

[S136] Adeline Horton White, Hortons In America, page LIV - Notes - Derby and Leicester counties join, which strengthens the assumption of the Heraldic Office that the registry of the baptism was made in the environment of the Derbyshire family to which he belonged, although he was born at Mowsley. There is data, however, that is accepted as reliable that the early life of Barnabas Horton centered at Mowsley, viz.: a record of a marriage in 1621 to Anne Smith of Stanion of Northamptonshire, a record of baptism of a son, Benjamin, born 1627, and a marriage to Mary Langton of Wigton Magna mentioned in the will of her mother, 1640.i; page 1 - Barnabas Horton, born in Mowsley, Leicestershire, England (old style). In 1622 he married Anne Smith of Stanion of Northamptonshire, England. She died, and he married Mary Langton mentioned in the will of her mother, 1640. He emigrated to America in the ship Swallow, Captain Jeremy Horton, master and owner, in 1635 to 1638, landed at Hampton, Mass., where he owned a plot of ground.(*) He came to New Haven, 1640, with his wife, Mary, and two children, Joseph and Benjamin.
