Adam and Anne Mott By Thomas Clapp Cornell

Perhaps at this date Nathaniel Pearsall had not adopted the peaceable principles of Friends, but at any rate he had become a Friend a little later, for in the disputed administration of Leister (1689-90) writs were issued by the Governor calling a Provincial Assembly, the third Provincial Assembly under the English administration of the Province, to meet in New York in April, 1690, and the people of Queens County elected Nathaniel Pearsall as their representative. He attended at the appointed time, but, faithful to Friends' testimony against oaths, he refused to be sworn in, and therefore was not allowed to take his seat. When Colonel Sloughter arrived as Governor (in March, 1691), new writs were issued for a new Assembly, and Nathaniel Pearsall was again elected for Queens County, and this time John Bowne, the staunchest of Quakers, was sent as his colleague. They offered themselves at the appointed time to serve, but not being willing to take the oath they were not admitted. It had not yet been learned that an affirmation may safely be substituted for an oath. Neither Nathaniel Pearsall nor John Bowne made any further attempt to serve their neighbors in that way.

Nathaniel Pearsall of Hempstead died 24th of 8th month, 1703. Martha Pearsall, his widow (daughter of John Seaman), survived him nine years, and died on the 6th of 7th month, 1712. They had eleven children, as follows:

I. Nathaniel, born 27th of 11th month, 1676 ; died 30th of 11th month, 1679.

II. Thomas, born 18th of 4th month, 1679.

III. Martha, born loth of 10th month, 1681.

IV. Hannah, born 22d of 1st month, 1684; died 20th of 4th month, 1689.

V. Sarah, born 1st of 5th month, 1686.

VI. Elizabeth, born 28th of 8th month, 1688.

VII. Hannaha, born I4th of I2th month, 1690; died 31st of 11th month, 1718.

VIII. Phebe, born 20th of l10th month, 1693 ; died 14th of 1st month, 1703.

IX. Samuel, born 18th of 12th month, 1695 ; died 4th of 12th month, 1720.

X. Nathaniel, born 11th of 7th month, 1699 ; died 17th of 4th month, 1701.

XI. Mary, born 30th of 2d month, 1703.
