FIRST GENERATION OF THE ALEXANDER LINE IN AMERICA TO GRACE WILLIAMS ALEXANDER

Joseph Alexander was born in Sterling, South Scotland, the birthplace of the Scottish Poet, Robert Burns. Joseph Alexander died in 1726 at New Munster, in the colony of Maryland.

In 1673 Joseph immigrated to Armaugh County, Ireland to gain religious freedom. In Ireland, the King, in an effort to subugate the Irish, divided the counties into parishes. He appointed Clergy of the Church of England and entrusted in them both civil and ecclestiastical authority to govern the people. The Presbyterian ministers were persecuted by the State Clergy and they retaliated by persuading their congregations to immigrate to America with them, where religious freedom was assured.

In 1676 Joseph Alexander and seven of his brothers sailed from Ireland on the "Good Ship Welcome" for America. They anchored in the Delaware River, off shore from the town of New Castle. They then migrated to the established Presbyterian settlement at "New Castle", now known as Christianna Hundred, in the American colony in 1714. Lord Cecil had received from the King of England, a land grand of several thousands acres in Maryland colony. Land speculators had purchased approximately 6,000 acres of Lord Cecil's tract, one part of which was located on the Big Elk River, which the early settlers named "New Munster".

Joseph Alexander and his brothers purchased land in New Munster and established the first homes of the Alexanders in America. The actual location of Joseph Alexander's first home is not known, however, a few of the houses have been restored and they are built of field stone and logs mortared with clay. The original land grant to Lord Cecil and Joseph Alexander's deeds can be seen at the Maryland Historical Library at Annapolis, Maryland. Approxiamately [sic], two hundred years later William DuPont purchased several hundred acres of the original Lord Cecil grant, including a portion of "New Munster" and built his estate "Fair Hill". He restored the old Presbyterian Church (now known as Christianna Hundred) and a few of the old houses. In the graveyard of the Church are buried many of the Alexander immigrants and their descendants.

Joseph Alexander's will was filed at Elkton, Maryland on March 9, 1726 which gives the names of his children and his bequests to them.

The Alexander Pioneers who settled in Somerset County, Maryland were Andrew, William Sr. Samuel, James, Francis and John.--others of the name who may also be considered as of the first-generation. These were among the original grantees of land in New Munster, Cecil county, Maryland in 1714 and 1718. They were Joseph Alexander, tanner, Arthur Alexander, farmer and David Alexander, weaver. James Alexander, weaver was also one of the group that received New Munster land as wells James Alexander, farmer who was the son of Samuel of Somerset County. These men had evidently been living on the land for some time as Stevenson deed stated that the Alexander’s had for some years past been improved (the land) possessed by them and had by them been divided among themselves pg. 3 gives something on ANDREW ALEXANDER who died comparatively young about 1700, wife unknown. may have been McKnight. Record of birth of son Elias (Elias) born 26th AD 1679. Andrew appears in Somerset Register which was begun in 1714-15. Some years later the son Elias witnessed the Cecil Co deed executed by Thomas Stevenson conveying the New Munster tract in Cecil Co to group including seven Alexanders in 1714. In 1718 the same group received more land from Stevenson. From 1765-85 a Francis Alexander was taxed in West Caln Township, Chester Co and from 1765-7 4 a Francis was taxed in West Nanmeal Township. These townships join and they may have been father and son. May 13 1777 Francis of Springtown Manor, West Nantmeal Township deed land on branch of the Brandywine. This was probably Francis Sr. His wife was Catherine sons William and James, grandsons James and Francis gd. Betsey and daughter in law Jean and Nancy Armitage (James) who removed to Venango Co. Pa about 1824 His daughter Helen, Mrs James R. Burr, Franklin, Pa is member of DAR Sophia, daughter of Joseph the tanner may have married Elias Alexander son of Andrew . Jane Huley daughter of Joseph the tanner no record, Abigail Clapham also daughter of Joseph the tanner no record.

DAVID ALEXANDER Chapter 1 pg. 99-101 David Alexander, weaver of new Munster, Cecil County, Maryland: no record has been found as to the origin of David Alexander who was one of the original group of seven Alexander’s who purchased land in New Munster in 1714 and 1718. The fact that most of them came from Somerset County on the Eastern Shore leads to the belief that David also came from there. It is possible that he was a son of one of the Alexander emigrants who settled in that county. We know of but one son of William Alexander Sr, one son of Francis and none of John while evidently Andrew had but one son Elias. It is reasonable to assume that there were more children in these families. To be sure David may have come from Talbot County on the Eastern Shore where there were early Alexanders-probably antedating those of Somerset. Some of these bore the name of David. Again, there were David Alexander’s on the Western Shore of Maryland. It is possible that he came directly form Ulster or Scotland; although immigration had not actively started in 1714 and certainly not as early as 1683,when Talbot surveyed the New Munster tract for the fifteen other Irishmen. David may have been one of them-for there were Alexander’s in this unnamed group. In the deed executed by Thomas Stevenson, Aug 201714, to Matthew Wallace and the Alexander group, the land insignificantly described as being bounded by the lands of Daniel Pearce, Matthew Wallace and David Alexander. Thus David Alexander owned land in New Munster before the other Alexander’s received title to the l,000 acres; upon which probably all of them had lived, without title,according to the text of the Stevenson deed. Moreover, he may have been one of the fifteen other Irishmen for whom Talbot surveyed land in 1683. David Alexander was an Elder at Broad Creek Church and as Elders he and John Brevard were present at a meeting of the New Castle Presbytery held Aug. 9 1726 at Upper Elk Church. This may have been the Christiana Church or the Rock Church, probably the former.(Records of the Presbytery of New Castle upon Delaware. Journal of the Presbyterian Historical Society, Vol xv. pg 1131).

A petition signed by 88 inhabitants of Cecil Co. Md, was sent to the Assembly and by them referred to the Committee of A grievances on Oct. 11 1725. David Alexander signed this petition. ( Mc Hist.Society, Baltimore)

Not knowing his forbears, David Alexander, weaver, will be considered as constituting the first generation of his branch of the Family. The dates of his birth, marriage and death are unknown. It maybe that his wife’s name was Mary, and by analyzing the scant legal records it would appear that he died soon after 1740. This is borne out by documents which show that his son and heir, Aaron, began disposing of his father’s property in 1749.About 1746 the widow of a David Alexander married John Dobbin in Pennsylvania for a time they resided near Winchester, Va and then went to Carolina. While the Alexander families that went with them took up their abode in the Yadkin-Cataba section, they settled on the Cape Fear River. Ann Alexander , daughter of the deceased David and step-daughter. of John Dobbin married Gilbert, son of Alexander Clark. This information which is found in NC Colonial Records, Vol 5 pg. 1197, probably refers to the wife of David Alexander of New Munster or maybe to the wife of David Alexander who died in Lancaster, Pa. in 1741. The first authentic record found of David Alexander is contained in the deed executed by Thomas Stevenson, dated May 18 1714 in which he conveyed l,100 acres of land lying along the Elk River, in that part of Cecil county known as new Munster, to David Alexander, weaver and five other Alexander’s. Elias Alexander was one of the witnesses of this document. According to promise Stevenson deeded 903 additional acres to the same group of Alexander’s on Aug 15 1718; Mary, the widow of James the famer and Elias being included. (Cecil Deed Books no 2and 3) David’s land was on the east side of the Elk River and joined that of James Alexander, weaver, and his son Moses. It was situated just south of the present Mason-Dixon line and may have extended into Pennsylvania. At any event, available records give the impression that David and his family were largely inhabitants of that State. In 1724 David Alexander patented a tract of land in Cecil county called David’s Purchase, the certificate of survey being numbered 75.(Land office, Annapolis). David witnessed a deed executed by James Alexander, weaver, his son Moses, and his wife Mary to William Sample of Chester Co. Pa, April 8 1735 (Cec. 5-97). Only two children of David are of definite record, namely Aaron and William. However there were probably others and it would not be amiss to consider sons David and John and James. The records of Chester County contain deeds and wills of several Alexander’s bearing these names Moreover, the David’s and Johns maintain a certain association; while the frequent repetition of the name John gives rise to the impression that David Alexander of Cecil Co and John Alexander of Somerset may have been closely connected. Pennsylvania records carrying the name, David Alexander are herewith included. Some of them may have been David’s sons or grandsons and may furnish a clue to this brand of the Alexander’s.---The will of a David Alexander of Pequea, Lancaster Co Penn. is date Jan 11 1741. (Lancaster, A-1-5). He named his aged mother, Mary Alexander and my two sisters Mary Patterson and Jennet Pemberton---my two brothers Robert and John Alexander---John Alexander, my cousin. Evidently David was unmarried as he names neither wife nor children. He may have been a son of David of Cecil Co Md. Pequea is situated on the east bank of the Susquehanna, to the north of the Peach Bottom section of sw Lancaster Co. This was essentially a Scotch-Irish s/settlement.---a John Alexander of Martick Township, Lancaster Co, Penn, made his will April 5 1763. (Martick Township was in the same section as Pequea) He named his wife Jane; eldest son Thomas and son James. John may have been the brother of the above David.---James Alexander, evidently the son of John made his will Jan 261802.He named his wife Mary; son John; son Andrew and his son David; daughters Mary and Margaret. His son John and wife Edith of Easttown, later deeded his sister Mary Alexander a lot willed to John by his father, David.---The Pennsylvania Archives record the following land warrants issued to Alexander’s bearing the name David: Lancaster Co, 150 acres, May 261738 Lancaster Co. 20 acres Nov 26 1772 Cumberland Co., 50 acres June3 1762 Juniata Co. 294 acres surveyed Feb. 7 1753 Bedford Co. 400acres July 1 1784 All of these counties were settled by Scotch-Irish---A David Alexander was listed for taxed in Cumberland Co in1780-1781 and it is probable that he was the same David who was private in Capt. McClellans Company, Cumberland Co Militia, 1782,Revolutionary War. The known sons of David Alexander weaver of Cecil County were: I. Aaron probably born in Cecil Co. Md, died in Mecklenburg, NC . Will on file dated Nov 15 1771, named his wife Mary (second wife, first wife, Ann), This Aaron had a warrant for 100 acres of land in Lancaster Co. Penn. on April 26 1742.(Penn archives Vol 24, Series 3) (Compiler says second wife was Jean (Brown)Ross, widow of Isaac Ross, Sr.) On Nov 15 1749 Aaron Alexander farmer of Lancaster Co. Pa. deeded John Alexander of Township of New Britain, Chester Co. Pa, part of attract called new Munster, which did formerly belong to David Alexander of Cecil Co. Md. One of the witnesses to this deed was Zebulon Alexander (Cec.7-121)

Joseph Alexander died in 1726 at New Munster, in the colony of Maryland.

In 1673 Joseph immigrated to Armaugh County, Ireland to gain religious freedom. In Ireland, the King, in an effort to subugate the Irish, divided the counties into parishes. He appointed Clergy of the Church of England and entrusted in them both civil and ecclestiastical authority to govern the people. The Presbyterian ministers were persecuted by the State Clergy and they retaliated by persuading their congregations to immigrate to America with them, where religious freedom was assured.

In 1676 Joseph Alexander and seven of his brothers sailed from Ireland on the "Good Ship Welcome" for America. They anchored in the Delaware River, off shore from the town of New Castle. They then migrated to the established Presbyterian settlement at "New Castle", now known as Christianna Hundred, in the American colony in 1714. Lord Cecil had received from the King of England, a land grand of several thousands acres in Maryland colony. Land speculators had purchased approximately 6,000 acres of Lord Cecil's tract, one part of which was located on the Big Elk River, which the early settlers named "New Munster".

Joseph Alexander and his brothers purchased land in New Munster and established the first homes of the Alexanders in America. The actual location of Joseph Alexander's first home is not known, however, a few of the houses have been restored and they are built of field stone and logs mortared with clay. The original land grant to Lord Cecil and Joseph Alexander's deeds can be seen at the Maryland Historical Library at Annapolis, Maryland. Approxiamately [sic], two hundred years later William DuPont purchased several hundred acres of the original Lord Cecil grant, including a portion of "New Munster" and built his estate "Fair Hill". He restored the old Presbyterian Church (now known as Christianna Hundred) and a few of the old houses. In the graveyard of the Church are buried many of the Alexander immigrants and their descendants.

Joseph Alexander's will was filed at Elkton, Maryland on March 9, 1726 which gives the names of his children and his bequests to them.
