About Captain William Pendleton, Jr.

BRIAN PENDLETON AND HIS DESCENDANTS, 1599-1910, Compiled by Everett Hall Pendleton, Privately Printed MCMX, found in the DAR Library, Washington, DC. Page 84.

   48. (Capt.) William-5 Pendleton (Col. William-4, Joseph-3), was born at Westerly, RI, 11 Feb 1726/7, and died at Northport, Maine, 28 Aug 1820 (Gravestone).
   On the 3rd of March 1751, he received from his father a deed to land at Westerly; this transfer was not recorded until 26 Mar 1760, and is entered on page 354 of Book 9, Westerly Land Evidence. On the 24th of March in the year he transferred this land with "mansion house" to his brother Amos for 2000 pounds. William-5 was then of Stonington, Conn., and this deed was also signed by his wife Judith. William Pendleton had been admitted freeman at Westerly, 1 May 1753 (RI Col. Rec., iv, Sup. 43), but subsequently removed to Stonington, where he began buying land 27 June 1761, making successive purchases until 28 Feby. 1767, when he bought of Joseph Champlin 94 acres for 242 pounds. Some of his property was at Long Point. He was elected surveyor of highways at Stonington, 18 Dec 1760 ("Town Votes," ii, 218).
   Tradition says that William Pendleton owned a schooner and traded to the coast of Maine, and the History of Islesboro [p.10] says he came there in 1769, taking up 600 acres at the extreme southern end of the Island, upon which he soon settled his family. William sold his last tract of land and his house at Stonington to John Hillard, 11 Jan 1769. Previous to this he had sold to William Morgan for 612 pounds, 10s., about 85 acres at Long Point, Stonington, 3 March 1767 (Stonington Deeds).
   Islesboro, then known as Long Island, was claimed by Isaac Winslow of Boston, as a part of his wife's inheritance in the "Waldo Patent," and in 1771 William Pendleton secured from him a lease.
