About Richard Denney

From "TheSettlers of the Beekman patent":

RICHARD2 DENNY JR., was in Beekman by Feb. 1745 when he and his wife were sponsors for a local baptism, although he was not taxed until June 1748. Richard Denny took a lease in lot 10 on a 200 acre farm that had been settled 1 May 1740 by Jacob Cronkhyte. The rent book notes “Now Mathew Clark, 1745, transferred on ditto Richard Denny. 1 May 1748, By note received from Richard Denney £7/10 payable 5 Sept. 1748. Who is now in possession. Sept. 1748 he has paid his note for £7/10 to acc’t for in lot 10. (Bought without consent).” Richard Deny (sic) and wife Betty were Sp. at the bp. of Betty, dau. of Siebut Cronkhite and wife Marietje 5 Feb. 1745 in the Clove. [NYL RECORD 1968:228]. A 1791 survey mentions the farm and seems to imply that Denny and Clark jointly held a lease:

   “Pawling Town 2 Nov. 1791. The following is a survey bill as follows: Begins at William Clark’s bounds on the line between lots 9 and 10, running east on said line 54 Ch to the SW corner of the farm belonging to Mary Sheldon, now a widow, then North on the west side of said farm 60 Ch, to a chestnut sapling marked, then North 20 Ch to lot eleven, then running along said line west to Denny and Clark’s line then South on said line to the POB. The bounds were: South on lot 9, east on Widow Sheldon’s lease, north on lot 11, then west on the lease held by Denny and Clark.” Nathan Soule was the surveyor. “Ichabod Ward is interested in this land 1792.”   [ELP Box 162  Maps & Surveys f. 5]. 
  We suspect that his wife may have been a Clark. Both Robert and William Clark were involved with his farm and Richard Denny’s son Solomon named a son Clark Denny. The Denny family was involved with the families of Clark, Early, Hulse, Eldridge and Albro, among others. lists an additional son John
