Daniel Hubbard and his first wife Mary Clark had only one child, our ancestor Daniel (II) Hubbard. Daniel married secondly 16 Oct 1675 to Sarah Cornwell, born Oct 1647, Middletown, CT, the dau. of Sergeant William Cornwell and his second wife Mary. Daniel served in the French and Indian Wars in 1680 and removed to Haddam, Ponset District about 1700. In his will he writes: "I Daniel Hubbard of Middletown, doe make this my last will and testament: I leave unto my loving wife Sarah the use and improvement of my dwelling house, barn and homelott, and 2 acres of my boggy meadow, for her comfortable subsistence during her natural life, and 1/3 part of all my personal estate, to be disposed of as she shall see meet. The rest of my lands and personal estate it is my will that it be equally shared amongst all my children. I appoint my wife to be executrix, and request Lt. Thomas Ward to be overseer." The will was witnessed by Samuel Hall, Richard Hubbard, and John Hall. The estate was inventoried at 214-18-03, by John Cornwall, Sr, and John Hall. In the Court record, page 63, the will was proven 6 Mar 1704/5, and on page 78, 8 Mar, 1705/6, "Sarah Hubbard, widow, executrix, exhibited now an account of her administration, and this Court orders distribution of the estate and appoints Capt. John Hall, Lt. Thomas Ward, and Mr Alexander Rollo." They made distribution to Daniel Hubbard of Haddam, son of the deceased, and to Sarah, Mehetabell, and Mary Hubbard.

Notes for Roelof De Duyster:
ROELOF (3) DE DUYTSCHER [Jan (2), William (1)], b. at Marbletown, Ulster Co., N. Y.; d. 19 Jan., 1737; mar. banns 17 Nov., 1700 (K. M., 164), Jannetje Bresie... From the Bresie family the names Christopher, Gabriel and Christina became common among Roelof de Duytscher's descendants. Mr. Henry Whittemore's De Duytscher Genealogy, copies of which are in the N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Society, N. Y. Historical, and Lenox Libraries is devoted to certain of the descendants of Roelof, and I have to thank Mr. Arthur Wickwire of N. Y. City, for his notes, prepared for that work. Roelof is, probably, the "rullof Johnson" who 1686-7 was private in Capt. Matthys Matthysen's Company with "John Willemson" as corporal (1897, N. Y. State Historical Report, 2-451), at Kingston. In 1711, he and his brother David were volunteers on "Ye Expedition agst Canada" (Id., 2-441), thus thoughtfully entitling their descendants to membership in various Societies of Colonial Wars. 30 Nov., 1715, under Sergeant William White), he, and his wife's brothers, Nicholas and Gabriel Bresie, and his son-in-law Joshua White, were in the Livingstone Manor Independent Company (Id., 2-523). In the census of 1714, he and his household, including one slave, is given (Hist. of Dutchess Co., 60). In 1720, or prior thereto, he was in Salisbury, Conn., where it is said, that he with John Dyckman, Abraham Van Deusen and Laur. Knickerbocker bought land, supposing it was within the New York borders (Rudd's Hist. Sketch of Salisbury, Conn., and Hist. of Litchfield Co. Conn., 520, 521). De Deutscher Genealogy gives a deed in full for 150 acres at New Milford, Conn., to Roelof, Aug. 29, 1720. In 1722 he and his wife appear at Linlithgo, Col. Co., N. Y., as sponsors to a child of his wife's sister, Clara Vosburgh (b. Bresie), and in 1727 at Claverack to a son of Abraham Van Deusen, supra. His land on the west side of the "Owsatunnock" River is mentioned, 26 May, 1726 (Conn. Col. Records, 7, p. 40). 8 Feb., 1729, by a "Margarett vote" at Westbury, Litchfield Co., Conn., he was elected to mark and record the horses, and 26 Feb., 1729, he took the oath of office (Orcutt's New Milford, 134, 135). He died, a large land owner, 19 Jan., 1737, his will, drawn in English, being proved 9 June, 1737, Rulof making his mark. The widow and sons were taxed on 330. De Deutscher Genealogy gives the will in full, also a family compromise because of a codicil. The widow died the 26 July, 1749. Rulof was a Weataug pioneer, a competent farmer, and his sons showed the upward tendency which has made our country a nation of ascent, not descent. Many descendants are still in Connecticut and Vermont. The military instinct was peculiarly strong, and the Revolutionary members include Capt. Roelof Dutcher of Connecticut. Issue:

***



ROELOF DE DUYSTER, ancestor of this family, was born at Marbletown (then called Moonet), New York, about 1669. He is believed by many historians to have been the son of Jan and Margaret Duyster whose records are among the earliest in the Dutch church at Kingston. Roelof Duyster married (banns published November 17, 1700) Jannetje Bressie, daughter of Christopher and Christina (Claeszen) Bressie, of Albany and Livingstone Manor, New York. (Whitmore's "De-Duyster Family.") The direct ancestor of Roelof Duyster is still a matter of study among the researchers in early Dutch records. The ancestry of the Bressie family is Huguenot, and the name is found among the refugees who fled from France during the persecution of the Huguenots and sought haven among the Dutch in Holland. About 1720, Roelof Duyster with his family, removed in company with the Van Deusen and White families, and settled in that part of the town of Salisbury, Connecticut, then called Weatogue. His house was on the Cornwall road and being of stone was used as a garrison house during the Indian troubles. A large family of children was born to Roelof and Jannetje Duyster and baptized at Kingston before 1720. In July, 1711, before his migration to Weatogue, he was enrolled as a member of the Ulster county regiment commanded by Captain Ten Broeck and was a private in the Independent Company of the Manor of Livingston, November 30, 1715. After leaving Ulster county he resided at Dover Plains, then a part of Livingston Manor, and in 1714 a list of inhabitants shows his family consisted of one male over 16, three under 16, two females over 16, one under, and one slave. His name and that of his wife appear as late as July 26, 1722, on the records of the Dutch church at Kingston, as witnesses at the baptism of their grandchildren. In the deed dated August 29, 1720, when Roelof Duyster bought his farm in Salisbury, he is called of Weatogue and it is said the land purchased in Salisbury was then supposed to be within the borders of New York. He died a large landowner, January 19, 1737. His will, drawn in English, was proved June 9, 1737, and in 1739, his sons, Henry, Christopher, Roelof, John, Gabriel, Cornelius, and the "Widow Dutcher" were on tax lists at Salisbury, showing that Roelof's wife survived him. She died July 26, 1749. The property was not distributed until July 24, 1758, when an agreement of heirs was signed by the sons Roelof, John, Cornelius; Herty, widow of Christopher; Gabriel, who received the homestead, and the children of Christopher who were then living in Canaan, Connecticut. Roelof Duyster, or Dutcher as now it is spelled, was a Weatogue pioneer and a competent farmer, with a strong military instinct which was perpetuated in the character of his sons and their descendants whose names may be found on the rolls of the Militia in all ensuing wars for America's freedom and independence. The children of Roelof and Jannetje (Bressie) Duyster were as follows:

I--Johannes, bapt. Sept. 21, 1701; d. young.
II--Christina, bapt. Aug. 8, 1703; m. Joshua White.
III--Christopher, bapt. July 15, 1705; m. Herty White.
IV--Johannes, bapt. Jan. 25, 1708; m. Christina Chisholm.
V--Margaret, bapt. May 7, 1710; m. Stephen Krieger.
VI--CORNELIUS, b. about 1712.
VII--Roelof, bapt. Oct. 1, 1714; m. Catharina Reinders.
VIII--Catharina, b. about 1718; m. Hermanus Knickerbocker.
IX--Gabriel, bapt. Feb. 20, 1720; m. Elizabeth Knickerbocker.
