I originally became interested in Henry Hope when I took a tour of Welgelegen, his summer home that now houses the government offices of the Province of North Holland.
One day a year these premises (including the private gardens) are open to public viewing.
While on the tour, the guide mentioned in passing that negotiations for the Louisiana purchase once took place in this building.
I was hooked. That was more than 15 years ago, and since then, whenever I have been able to find out more information I have collected it.
This is a place to share what I have learned.
Henry Hope 1735-1811 b. in Braintree near Boston, to Sarah Willard and Mr. Hope, no marriage, and no issue, but many babys named after him!

He was apprenticed for 6 years to a well-known merchant house in London, Gurnell, Hoare, & Harman (now Hoare's bank), who were somehow affiliated with Amsterdam, probably through Jeremiah Harman, who was the executor of all Hope wills.
He moved to Amsterdam in 1762 to become partner with his uncles Adrian & Thomas and cousin Jan.
He bought the villa Welgelegen as a summer home in 1769, two years year after his cousin Jan bought Groenendaal in Heemstede.
He built a new house called Paviljoen Welgelegen in 5 years from 1785 - 1789.
Thomas Jefferson visited and sketched Hope's House on 20 March 1788 (before completion).
In 1782 Adam Smith dedicated 'The Wealth of Nations' to him.
Henry Hope fled to London in 1794 and merged later with Barings, issuing the Louisiana Purchase shares in 1804.
Henry’s charities:
Henry was very nice to the young Hope & Co. clerk John Williams, taking him into his house when he was sick.
Henry later arranged an advantageous marriage for his young clerk Pierre CezarLabouchere, who by marrying the daughter of Francis Barings became a partner for the London branch of Hope & Co.
Henry formally adopted John Williams when John Williams married his niece Ann Goddard. John Williams changed his name to Williams Hope, and after the death of Henry's cousin Jan/John Hope he called himself John Hope.
Henry also had another ward, his godson James Horatio Watmough, who he was related to through his mother’s sister Mary Willard (JHW's grandmother). At about the same time as his adoption of John Williams, he bought a very nice country house for young Watmough as a wedding present in 1782, now known as Hope Lodge in Pennsylvania. This I found very puzzling, since James Horatio didn’t marry his wife Anne Carmick until 1784 (in Phile!) and Hope Lodge is a very big house to buy for a first cousin once removed.
Perhaps cousin Maria Ellis was Henry's unrequited love of his life? His young cousin JHW went into the family business of merchant banking in Philadelphia.
He wouldn’t be the first young man to accept favors from Henry Hope and subsequently marry the daughter of a merchant friend of Henry’s. I couldn’t find any satisfactory info on this at all.
In any case, both James Horatio and John Williams were grateful, naming their first children Henry (Henry Hope Watmough and Henry Williams Hope).
Harriet Hope 1740-1814 Henry's sister (and as far as I know, only sibling), b. in Braintree near Boston, to Mary Willard and Henry Hope the elder

Harriet is Henry’s sister and is said to have lived 1740-1814 (as yet no data found). She is his only surviving relative of the first degree. She has emigrated from Massachusetts and marries in Rotterdam around the time that he finishes his apprenticeship in London and joins Thomas & Adrian Hope in Amsterdam. She marries the son of a Rotterdam merchant with English heritage, John Goddard. I can’t tell if she met him in Rotterdam or Massachusetts. The Goddards are a well know name in Newport, Rhode Island as cabinetmakers, and the Willard family on Harriet’s mothers’ side are well known clock makers in Grafton, MA. Especially since Thomas Hope Jr., grandson of Thomas Hope the VOC director, wrote a book on interior decoration and designed furniture.

  • m. John Goddard 1737-1800John Goddard was a merchant in Rotterdam that worked together with the Hopes, but it is not clear to me in what way. Certainly he was a broker in shipping cargoes, because we see that he is charged with late payment on a sugar cargo from France. I believe he is related to the Goddards of Rhode Island, a family of cabinetmakers, that he supplied with mahagony from the West Indies. John Goddard, Engels koopman te Rotterdam, 1690-1767.

    I am trying to find a link to the Newport RI Townsend-Goddard cabinetmakers
    In the 18th cent. Bristol, UK was active in the colonial triangular trade: English goods went to Africa; African slaves to the West Indies; and West Indian sugar, rum, and tobacco to Bristol. The Great Western (1838), one of the first transatlantic steamships, and the Great Britain (1845) the first ocean steamship with a screw propeller, were launched from Bristol.
    Nottingham is close to Bristol, UK, but so is Nottingham, NH and Bristol, Mass!
    Hudson, NH was a part of Nottingham, Massachusetts. The town was separated in 1741, and named Nottingham West. Owing to confusion with the town of Nottingham in the north, voters petitioned to have the town renamed in 1830. The name Hudson was chosen because of its position near the Merrimack River, once supposed to flow east from the Hudson River, creating the boundary line between Massachusetts and New Hampshire
    Henry Hope Sr. 1699-1737 According to Buist, this is Archibald Sr's oldest son. Henry's father is still a mystery to me. He was born in Rotterdam I believe, but I can't find any record other than this one:
    Rotterdam DTB Register:
    Datum doop 20-01-1669 Dopeling Henry Hoop Vader Henry Hoop Moeder Anna Hoop Plaats Rotterdam
    This would be the baptism of Archibald Sr.'s younger brother Henry, who was born in 1664.
    It would make sense if this Henry grew up and had a first-born son called Henry, who would be the Henry who emigrated to America and had Henry, showing the normal way of naming the first-born son after the father. It is also possible that this Henry died young and Archibald named his oldest son after his brother.
    Buist says that Archibald Sr. had an oldest son Henry who emigrated to America. In which case perhaps the Henry of the baptism entry above died young.
    After this Henry, let's say Archibald's son, emigrated to America, he seems to have disappeared after his marriage. He was a freemason however.
    I have so far no trace of him after mention in the Grand Lodge of Henry Price (Henry Hope was grand master). He was in that lodge together with Edward Ellis, his brother-in-law. Henry probably died, together with his wife.
    Freemason: On Monday of July 30, 1733, Henry Price convened at Boston the following Brethren: Andrew Belcher, Thomas Kennelly, John Quane, Henry Hope, Frederick Hamilton, John McNeall, Peter Hall, Matthew Young, John Waddell and Edward Ellis at the house of Edward Lutwyteh "at ye Sign of the Bunch of Grapes in King Street. Henry Hope was chosen Master and he nominated Frederick Hamilton and James Gorder as Wardens. Andrew Belcher was a well-known merchant, unpopular because he hoarded grain to export to the West Indies in times of great hunger and scarcity. He was the son of Jonathan Belcher. Lutwyche of Lutwyches Ferry Merrimack NH. Ferry later confiscated and became known as Thornton's Ferry. All of these men, including Price, are Tories/loyalists. Colonel Edward Goldstone Lutwyche - head of regiment; son of Capt. Lawrence and Sarah (Lindall) Lutwyche, born in 1737 and resided in Merrimack, NH, in the Thornton's Ferry (formerly Lutwyche's Ferry) section of town; he was selectman in 1763 In 1780 Matthew Thornton, physician and signer of the Declaration of Independance for NH, purchased the confiscasted estate of "Tory' Edward Goldstone Lutwyche, including the site of the current Thornton's Ferry Cemetery. Lutwyche was a well educated man, a lawyer by profession, and a colonel of the 5th NH provincial regiment of militia. He fled to Boston to join General Gage's army, and fought with him in the American Revolution, leaving his wife behind. Mrs. Lutwyche found that running the Ferry was too much of a hardship and she petitioned the legislature for a release. In 1778 Edward Lutwyche superintended the King's Brewery at New York, being paid at the rate of 10/day. He married in 1748 to Jane Rapalje. His will was probated 23 January 1816 in Canterbury, England.
    m. Sarah Willard 1704-1737 Henry's mother, b. 1704 at Braintree, Boston,
    have so far no trace of her. Her sister Mary Willard seems to have taken Sarah's place.
    Sarah and Mary Willard were related to the Willard clockmakers and Major Samuel Willard.
    Father Henry is also disappeared after the birth of the kids, except for mention in freemason records.
    Dr. Edward Ellis 1698-1771 Henry's uncle, b. 23 Feb 1698/99 at Boston, MA; baptized at Old South Church, Boston, MA. He was Surgeon General of Massachusetts Troops on 19 Feb 1744.These 'Massachusetts Troops' are otherwise known as the Massachusetts Rangers or Gorham's Rangers, a Tory military unit reknowned for their unorthodox terrorist attack methods. They were successfull in maintaining the fort at Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia.

  • m. Mary Willard1695-ABT1745 daughter of Daniel Willard and Mary Mills; 1st wife, 2nd husband;

    Mary Willard, m. Mr.Schuyler; m. Dr. Edward Ellis after 1712.
    she and John (Sch/C)uyler had their "marriage intention" published in Boston: (Boston marriage intentions) Mary Willard & John (of Albany) Schuyler, Aug. 2, 1711
    She died 16 June 1745 in Halifax or Boston, "on the night of the illumination for the capture of Louisbourg." Note that John Schuyler was a hero from skirmishes with the Indians. Note that Mary's death is similar by date/place to husband of Abigail Otis, leading me to believe that both Edward Ellis and Andrew Halliburton were in Halifax in 1745, perhaps as Massachusetts/Gorham Rangers at Annapolis Royal. Since Edward Ellis was a surgeon and son of a doctor, Andrew Haliburton may have been his patient, which is how he met Abigail Otis, his second wife.
    Known child of John Schuyler and Mary Willard was John Schuyler born at Albany, New York. Son Schuyler; died in infancy. The three known children of Mary Willard and Dr. Edward Ellis were as follows:
  • Maria Ellis (1730); married Captain Edmund Watmough in Boston in 1748 who was in the British army and served in Halifax. Her children and grandchildren are named after Henry Hope.
  • Sarah Ellis (1733); married Isaac Deschamps in Halifax in 1758 (Isaac was the King's Solicitor for Nova Scotia). I can't find records of children.
  • Elizabeth Ellis (1735), married Capt. Peter Jacob Dordin/Dordon in 1757, probably in Newport, RI; married Peter Francis Christian De les Dernier in 1773 in Newport, RI. Died in 1817 in Salem, NH.
    Note: The Willards were clockmakers in Grafton, Mass (see Willard clockmakers), who worked together with the Goddards of Rhode Island to make exclusive mahogany clock cabinets. Sam Slick was a 'clockmaker from Connecticut'. Sarah and Mary Willard were related to Cotton Mather, Reverend Samuel Willard and Major Samuel Willard.

    On 22 Feb 1730 Abigail first married Andrew Halliburton, (son of William Halliburton (ca 1674-6 Dec 1698) & Janet Allan), at First Parish Church, Scituate. Andrew died at Kingston, NS, on 2 Sep 1745. Note that Abigail Otis lost her husband at the same time that Edward Ellis lost his wife Mary Willard.

    6 Children of Abigail Otis & Andrew Halliburton:

  • Andrew Halliburton Jr. Born ca 1732.
  • Abigail Halliburton. Born ca 1734. Abigail died aft 5 Jul 1803. On 24 Jul 1754 Abigail Halliburton married Capt. Frederick Hamilton, at Newport, RI. This Frederick Hamilton is possibly the son of the same Frederick Hamilton who was with Henry Hope Sr. and Edward Ellis at the forming of Henry Price’s freemason society in Boston in 1733.
  • Isabella Halliburton. Born ca 1736.
  • Priscilla Halliburton. Born ca 1738. On 24 Jul 1754 Priscilla first married Robert Pate, at Trinity Church, Newport,RI. Priscilla second married Jonathan Card, son of Richard Card. Born ca 1738. Jonathan died in 1805. He died at sea.
  • William Halliburton* Born on 16 Apr 1739 at Boston, MA. On 9 Apr 1761 William married his cousin Lucy Otis, daughter of his mother Abigail’s brother Ephraim Otis (28 Jul 1708-14 Dec 1794) & Rachel Hersey (29 May 1714-26 Dec 1793). Born on 15 Apr 1738 at Scituate, MA. Lucy died at Windsor, Nova Scotia, ca 1 Jan 1822. Lucy, also called Lusanna. (Note: arrived Newport,NS 1763)
  • George Halliburton. Born ca 1742 at Boston, MA. On 26 Sep 1766 George married Ann Avery, dau. of Robert & Ann (Cushman) Avery.

    *William Halyburton (Haliburton) was one of the original Rhode Island Settlers, or Planters, to answer Governor Lawrence's call to people the fertile lands around the Avon and St. Croix rivers. (Lawrence's document was later dubbed "the Charter of Nova Scotia" by Sam Slick, a.k.a. T.C. Haliburton.) William Halyburton and his young wife, Lucy, arrived in 1761 and settled in what came to be known as Newport, just outside Windsor. After the death of their first son William and Lucy moved to the town of Windsor. In 1767 they gave birth to William Hersey Otis (W.H.O.) Haliburton, Thomas' father. Sam Slick was the pseudonym of Thomas Chandler Haliburton, a Canadian judge and author.

  • Archibald Hope Sr. 1664-1743 Henry's grandfather, founder of Hope & Co. b. 1664 in Rotterdam.

    G.Sanders made a portrait of Archibald Hope, koopman about 1700.
    According to Buist, six of eight sons of the Scottish merchant Archibald Hope (1664-1743) went into the family banking business of Hope & Co. Children: Henry (bef 1698), Archibald Jr. (1698-1734), John, James, Isaac, Thomas (1704-1779), Anna, Elisabeth, Adrian (or Adriaan)(1709-1781), Zachary, and Lewis
    The six sons in the merchant banking business were Henry (who emigrated to Massachusetts), Archibald Jr. (died young), Thomas (the most famous son in NL thanks to his connection to the stadtholder William and the VOC), Adrian (the "bookkeeper" in Amsterdam), and Zachary (the "slave trader").

    when she died there were 7 kids left. The 4 children who died before their mother Anna Claus were John, Archibald Jr (1734), Lewis, and either this no-name child (1711/12-1716) or Elisabeth (1711), though the baby was perhaps Elizabeth’s! Anna Claus was the sister of Magdalena Claus, married to Warner Lulofs who was a banker-speculator in Amsterdam. Possible relation to Jan/Jacob Claus of the William Penn Quakers.
    Archibald Hope Jr. 1698-1734

    Henry's cousin. Archibald Jr was the second son of Archibald Sr. after Henry, (if Henry was indeed a brother and not the first son of Achibald Sr.s brother!) and went to Amsterdam to work as an apprentice for his uncle Warner Lulofs, who married his mother’s sister.
    He would have been an apprentice for at least 6 years, but appears to have gone into partnership with him later.
    The first years after 1720 Archibald jr. lived on the Singel with his uncle Warner Lulofs who speculated on the Amsterdam exchange. In this period Warner had 5 children, so it must have been a hectic household.
    Later Archibald jr. became a merchant 'koopman' on the Herengracht.
    He granted power of attorney to his brother Thomas is 1724. Clearly they were successful, because he got married

    This puzzling DTB entry could be the son of Archibald’s son James, or perhaps it was the son James. It says jongeman, which I would take to be someone at most in their twenties, which seems much too young to be a son of Archibald Sr., but perhaps they mean he was a bachelor?
    The comment Harinvliet leads me to believe it is a relative of Archibald.

    Thomas Hope 1704-1779

    Thomas Hope the elder (1704-1779) married in 1727 the Amsterdam daughter of a merchant, Margaretha Marcelis (1705-1758). He had gone to Amsterdam to work for his older brother Archibald in 1720-25.
    They married within a year of eachother.
    After Archibald's death his younger brother Adrian joined him and they called the company Thomas & Adriaan Hope.
    Thomas became head of the VOC. In 1758 he bought Keizersgracht 444-446 from Mattheus Lestevenon, the ambassador to France. In 1759 Hope & Co. had 26 employees. The neighboring house, number 448 was bought in 1763 to house Henry Hope, and Thomas's son Jan, the new partners.
    In 1779 meldden de Nederlandsche Jaarboeken naar aanleiding van het overlijden van Thomas '[...] dat er mogelijk geen comptoir zo magtig in Europa gevonden wordt, dan het welk hij in deze stad heeft gevestigd'

    This puzzling series of DTB entries could be an unrelated Hope, but it could also be a daughter of Isaac or Zachary. Not sure.
    Adrian Hope 1709-1781

    Adrian/Adriaan was a real bookkeeper. He never married and after going into business with his older brother Thomas made himself at home in Amsterdam and never left.
    Unlike his brothers, he does not appear to have become a property owner, seeming to be content living in the Amsterdam offices and perhaps spending long weekends in the summers at one or the other pf the many summer homes his brothers had in the country.
    He never purchased any property in Amsterdam or the Haarlem area and lived with Thomas until his death.
    His name is most often on the Amsterdam correspondence, and he was instrumental in the petition for a settlement for the widow Clifford after the house of Clifford fell in 1772.
    He was on the commission to examine the books.
    He seems to have been socially active, but happy to remain in the background with the books.

    Zachary Hope 1717?-1770+

    Zachary and his brother Isaac married two sisters, which is the same thing their brother Henry and his friend Edward Ellis did in Massachusetts.
    Zachary seems to be the most internationally (in)famous of the Rotterdam Hopes. Also spelled Sacherij.
    His name seems most often associated with Slave trading.
    Officially on the Rotterdam exchange they were originally known as Archibald en Henry Hope, and after 1725 Archibald, Jn. en Isaac Hope.
    For Zachary Hope as the merchant referred to by Trevor see Georgia Colonial Records, vol. XXI, pp.100, 418; ibid., vol. IV, p. 672;
    South Carolina Historical and GenealogicalMagazine, vol. XXI (1920), p. 100; Diffenderfer, Redemptioners (Lancaster, 1900),
    In 1709/10 biggest problem of German Quaker (redemptionists). handled Archibald Hope, and later by his sons Zachary & Isaac Hope of Rotterdam. British secretary of Legation in the Hague wrote in 1739 "Till of late there was but one Merchant at Rotterdam, with his Associates, who was allowed to answer for, & transport These Emigrants. Zachary Hope, an Englishman".

    m. Agatha van Vlierden 171?-1745 Married Zachary in 1737 seven years after Zachary's older brother Isaac married her older sister Maria; b. in Rotterdam
    From the list of DTB entries for this couple, I gather that they had 5 kids, two of whom died quite young, since Agatha died the same year that Archibald Jr. was born, probably from complications arising from the birth of Archibald. At her death, there were only 3 children still living. These would be the baby Archibald, young Lucia of six, and Agatha Maria who was two. Archibald Jr. went on to do great things for the WIC and politics, while Lucy married a Haarlemmer and died in childbirth. The youngest daughter remained a spinster, probably frightened of childbirth since her sister and mother had problems. She apparently never left home as her address at death was Haringvliet.
    Lucia Hope 1741-1765 Zachary's daughter married the son of his Haarlem associate André/Andries Heshuysen/Heshuijsen.
    The DTB registers of Rotterdam and Haarlem tell her sad story, not uncommon at the time. She was married to a young man of promise who had just come into his own after his father’s death, and she died the next year.
    Adolf Jan Heshuijsen’s father André had been a successful merchant in Haarlem with 10 children born to him by Louise Visscher.
    When he died in 1764 his sons inherited and married into good merchant families.
    The wedding of Jan Adolf and Lucia has three entries in the Rotterdam archives: betrothal and wedding in Rotterdam, and church blessing in Delfshaven, showing the importance.
    Lucia moved to Haarlem with him and died probably from complications resulting from childbirth.

  • Going through the Haarlem archive listings for the Heshuijsens, both the brothers Jan and Andries had many children. Andries had 10 and Jan had 6. Frans Jacob and Adolf Jan were the sons of Andries, amd both got married when their father died.
    Another brother Louis Diederick, went to Virginia and married Elizabeth Newall.
    Adolf Jan got married three times, the first time in a grand wedding to Lucia Hope, who tragically died, leaving no trace, the second time to a Wickevoort Crommelin who also apparently died, and the third time to Johanna de Roo, with whom he was so wise as to draw up a testament beforehand in 1770.
    Archibald Hope 1747-1821 Archibald (1st son of Zachary) was born in 1739 and died the same year.
    This son Archibald (1747-1821) was the youngest baby of Zachary and Agathe and his birth probably caused her death.
    Archibald became a member of Dutch Parliament, regent of the West Indian Company (WIC), and built the former palace in the Hague formerly known as 'Hope House' and now known as 'Palace Lange Voorhout'.
    Archibald joined the Amsterdam Hopes (Thomas, Adrian, Jan, and Henry) as apprentice in 1774, at about the same time that young John Williams joined the firm as an apprentice.
    Archibald got married in the same year to Magdalena Antonia van de Poll, who he probably met in Heemstede, where her family had a summer home next to Jan Hope’s Groenendaal.
    Thomas Hope helped him through his connections to become appointed to the West Indian Company (WIC) in 1776.

    Proof that Archibald was friends with John Williams is the record showing that in 1785 he was witness at the baptism of John Williams son Henry. The story goes that Henry Hope took John Williams into his own house when he was too ill to come to work one day and he was not being cared for at his own lodgings. From that day on John Williams lived with Henry Hope, who adopted him and arranged a marriage with his sister’s daughter Ann Hope. That must have taken place somewhere between 1774 and 1785.

    In 1786 Archibald went to Surinam to become director there until 1789. He became regent of Amsterdam and acquired other prestigious memberships before becoming a member of Dutch Parliament in 1814.
    He lived during that period in his ‘Hope house’ (palace 'Lange Voorhout') in the Hague.
    He was knighted in NL in 1815.
    Just as his older cousins Henry and Jan, he purchased a country home in the Haarlem area.
    He bought Broek in Waterland in Velsen in 1781 and hired the same gardener as Henry to do the landscaping.

    I haven’t been able to discover if he had any children or not, and it’s not clear to me if he left his wife at home or took her with him to Surinam.

    Henry's US cousins 1725-1740 I am still not sure when Henry left Massachusetts. He was born around the same time and in the same town (Braintree) as John Adams, but they don't seem to be friends. Henry did have contact with Ben Franklin however.
    Ties to the US:
  • Henry's sister Harriet took her uncle to live in her house in Rotterdam, where he died in 1771
  • Henry convinced Francis Barings to invest in the Maine land deal and the Louisiana Purchase. He had family and connections living in Northern Maine (the borders of which reached Halifax) and in Louisiana (Acadian settlers)
  • James Horatio Watmough (1754-1811) was a wealthy Philadelphia merchant. I believe he was a clerk for Henry either in Amsterdam prior to the French occupation, or in London.
  • Maria Ellis 1730-1754+ Maria Ellis was the oldest daughter of Edward Ellis and Mary Willard. Known children of Capt. Edward Watmough and Maria Ellis were:
  • nn Watmough (died young)
  • John Watmough.
  • Edward Ellis Watmough.
  • James Horatio Watmough (1754-1811) was a wealthy Philadelphia merchant. He was well-traveled and visited places such as the West Indies, Great Britain and Ireland. His wife, Anna Carmick Watmough, was a good wife, mother and companion. Seven children were born to James and Anna. Of the seven, only four lived to adulthood.
  • m. Edmund Watmough 1729-1761+ Married Maria Ellis Jan. 30, 1748. Also spelled Watmouth. Was Captain and served in Nova Scotia, but can't find much info on him. His two sons JH and Edward Ellis (clearly named for his wife's father) were listed as Rhode Island settlers in Nova Scotia in Hants County in November 1760.
    Sarah Ellis 1730-1758+ b. 1 May 1730. Apparently no issue.
    m. Isaac Deschamps 1722-1801+ Isaac Deschamps (1722-1801) married, for a second time, Sarah Ellis, at Halifax, on 17th October, 1758. Likely of Swiss extraction, Isaac Deschamps, it seems, came to Halifax the year it was founded, 1749 (so after deportation of Acadians in 1745). In 1754 Deschamps was in charge of the truckhouse owned by Joshua Maugher and located at Piziquid (Windsor). At Piziquid trades for furs were made with the local Acadians and Indians in exchange for fire-arms, ammunition, cloth, blankets, pots, knives, and alike. Deschamps could speak and write both English and French. In 1760, with the French power in America finally broken and the Indians coming under English control, Deschamps was to be the "truckmaster" for the trade at Fort Edward (Windsor) and justice of the peace for Kings County; the following year, a judge of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas and judge of probate for Kings. In 1759, Deschamps became the first member of the Nova Scotia Assembly to represent the new county of Annapolis. All along he kept up at his commercial activities including entering into contracts with the military for certain of its supplies. In 1783, he was named to Council (the chief executive body in the cabinet form of government), and in 1785, he was appointed the acting chief justice.
    Elizabeth Ellis 1735-1817 Elizabeth Ellis was born on 22 March 1735.
    She was the daughter of Dr. Edward Ellis and Mary Willard.
    Elizabeth Ellis married Capt. Peter Jacob Dordin on 25 September 1757. Peter Dordin, Fellowship Club and Trinity Church member, sailed to Amsterdam as well as to Africa and invested in the vessel he captained. Probably a slave trader. He died in 1769.
    Elizabeth Ellis then m. Peter Francis Christian de Les Dernier, son of Gideon de Les Dernier and Madelon Martine, on 17 January 1773 in Newport, Rhode Island, by the Rev. W. Bissell of the Episcopal Church; 2nd husband; d. 1817 at Salem, NH.
    m. Peter Dordin 172?-1769 Capt. Peter Jacob Dordin : Charter of the Fellowship Club, instituted at Newport, R.I. Dec. 5th, A.D. 1752, and incorporated June 15th, A.D. 1754 which charter was renewed and altered, by the General Assembly, June 15th, A.D. 1785, and incorporated by the name of the Marine Society. If a captain survived -- and many did not -- he "had nothing to lose and a great deal to gain from a slaving venture," says historian Sarah Deutsch.
    In addition to a monthly wage, captains received a 5 percent commission on every slave sold. Many also received a bonus, or "privilege," of four or more slaves per 104 Africans aboard. The captains were free to sell them or keep them.
    Some made enough to invest in later trips to Africa. Many joined the Fellowship Club, a mutual aid society, established in Newport in 1752. When the club received a charter from the Rhode Island legislature, 17 of the 88 members had made at least one voyage to Africa. Shipping records Brigantine Apollo Capt. Dordin Amsterdam 1765-1766 Vernon family Collection 165 - “Invoice of sundrys” shipped by John Turner & Son, on the brig Apollo, Capt. Peter Dordin mentioned at end of document. (trex 3981)

  • m. Peter Delesdernier 172?-1776+ Peter Francis Christian de Les Dernier was the son of Gideon de Les Dernier and Madelon Martine. He was a at one time a merchant on Long Warf, Newport. Peter Francis Christian de Les Dernier married Elizabeth Ellis, daughter of Dr. Edward Ellis and Mary Willard, on 17 January 1773 in Newport, Rhode Island, by the Rev. W. Bissell of the Episcopal Church. Peter Francis Christian de Les Dernier died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, of yellow fever. This was probably in 1793 during the great plague of Yellow Fever in Philadelphia. Note: Gideon de Les Dernier was the brother or uncle of Moses Delesdernier: DELESDERNIER (Le Derniers, Les Derniers), MOSES, landowner and “improver,” office holder, land agent, and author; b. c. 1713 in Russin (canton of Geneva, Switzerland); d. 8 Sept. 1811 in Halifax, N.S. Moses Delesdernier and his first wife, Judith Martin (Martine), emigrated to London, England, in 1740, and ten years later came to Halifax with Gideon Delesdernier, either Moses’s brother or his uncle. In Nova Scotia Moses became involved in Abram Dupasquier’s scheme to recruit settlers from the Palatinate (Federal Republic of Germany) and returned to Europe in the fall of 1750. The venture proved most unsuccessful and he was back in Halifax in August 1751.
    Children of Peter Francis Christian de Les Dernier and Elizabeth Ellis were:
  • Mary de Les Dernier b. 20 May 1774 She died in infancy
  • Harriet de Les Dernier b. 29 May 1775 married William Pepperell Prescott (William was of Newcastle).
