Anthony Loockermans with his parents Messrs. (-{Pauleofe-spelling-questionable}- Leendertsen) Van der Grist. (Cornells; Schutt and (Cornelis) Steenwyck, on the 26th Nov. 1654 made an agreement with the Director (Stuyvesant) first name Peiter and Council, for the charter of the ship Golden Shark, for a voyage to the West Indies.  Of him we have no other notice, and suppose the Govert Loockermans is the person alluded to.

Among the early settlers of New Netherland were five persons bearing of these names - Govert, Jacob, and Pieter Janse Loockermans, and their sister Anneken and a Balthus Loockermans. The modern form of the name is Lockerman, but in the early  records of the family it is spelt Loockermans.

Balthus or Boltthazer Loockermans was perhaps a cousin of the others, the exact relationship being difficult to determine based on records concerning him. He and his wife Hendricks, had two  children baptized in the Dutch Church. The first Dutch Church of  the Colony was built by the help of three DeLancey Brothers, This is of concern now to the entry of that name, a Peter deLancey could be amongst or one of them.

The new Governor of the province was Gov. Kieft whom was the  one  to promoted Oloff van Courtlandt. This Cortlandt family is of cousin-ship to Rembrandt, but I'm not sure what degree.

3/7/12 1:45 P.M. E.S.T. __COURTLAND or CORTLANDT : SURNAME__ With few exceptions, hereditary surnames, the last names passed  down through the males of a family, didn't exist until about 1000  years ago. (According to some researchers) Many of the gentry, however, did not adopt surnames until the 14th Century (1300's),  and it was not until 1500 A.D. that most surnames became inherited and  no longer transformed with a change in a person's appearance, job, or place of residence. There were secondary names, although were not surnames at most and not brought down from father to  son. Such names as Fletcher the (arrow maker), or John son of William; Being Robert for instance was the arrow maker, these names were  probably if not so repeated, so to distinguish one to another the  job, place or other representation was applied.

James DeLancey) but had no children, they did adopt a niece though. Opinion in the colony was slavery divided in 1775 when Massachusetts rebelled against British rule, and Judge  Jones came down squarely on the side of loyalty. For his  disaffection for the rebellion he was kidnapped and exchanged for a friend of opposing opinions. While he was in England he wrote a History of New York During the revolutionary War and of the  Leading Events in the Other Colonies at That Period. find the book source at the article page at wikipedia of Thomas Jones (historian). The book supplied details  about the battle for Brookland as he called it or Battle of Long Island and complained against the generosity of the Treaty of Paris (1783) and consequent  mistreatment of loyalists. Jones singled out for particular attention the evacuation of the village of Hempstead, the recovery of  escaped slaves by their Rebel owners, and the abandonment of Britain's Iroquois allies in northern New York. The manuscript lay almost a hundred years on a closet shelve until it was discovered  and published. Comptroller Samuel Jones was Thomas Jone's first cousin.

3/22/2012 11:27 A.M. E.S.T. Providence Rhode Island and the Sugar Act ~ In the mid 1770's the British government levied taxes that impeded Providence's maritime, fishing and agricultural industries,  the mainstay of the city's economy.

The area that is now was settled in June 1636 by Roger Williams,  and was one of the original Thirteen Colonies of the United States. Although the west bank of the Providence River was later claimed  by both the English and the Dutch, the actual inhabitants and true  masters of the region were the Pokanoket tribe and gave the city its present name. Williams Providence soon became a refuge for persecuted religious dissenters, as he himself had been exiled from Massachusetts. Providence's growth would be slow during the next quarter-century-the subsuming of its territory into surrounding towns, difficulty of farming the land, and differing (of local traditions and land conflicts all slowed development.

The Sugar Act, which was a tax levied against Providence's distilleries, it adversely affected its trade in rum and slaves. The notorious Gaspee Affair of 1772 was a lead-up to the American Revolution. In response to enforcement of unpopular trade laws, Providence residents spilled blood on land and water. Gaspee Point in the city of Warwick, Rhode Island is where a British customs schooner had been enforcing unpopular trade regulations, it ran aground in shallow water on June 9, 1772, near what is now known as Gaspee Point, while chasing the pocket boat Hannah. Gaspee had been a name of a ship. In early  1772, Lieutenant William Dudingston sailed HMS Gaspee into Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay to aid in the enforcement of customs collection and inspection of cargo. Rhode island had a reputation for smuggling and trading with the enemy during wartime. A band of providence members of the Sons of Liberty rowed out to confront the ship's crew before the rising tide may set it free. These individuals some of who are named Abraham Whipple and John Brown were the leaders of the group, boarded, looted, and torched the ship. It was at the break of dawn on June 10, they boarded the ship.

The Crown in due time along with other vessels being destroyed  turned to a century-old institution of investigations, the Royal Commission of Inquiry. This commission would be made up of the chiefs of the supreme courts of Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey, the judge of the vice-admiralty of Boston, and the governor of Rhode Island, Joseph Wanton. The Dockyard Act, passed three months earlier in April, allowed those suspected of burning His Majesty's vessels to be tried in England. But this was not the law  that would be used against the Gaspee raiders; they would be charged with treason. The task of the commission was to determine against which colonists there was sufficient evidence for their trial in England. The commission was unable to obtain sufficient  evidence and declared  their inability to deal with the case.

Colonial Whigs were alarmed at the prospect of Americans being  sent to England for trial. A Committee of Correspondence was formed in Boston to Consult on the crisis. In Virginia, the House of Burgesses was so alarmed that they also formed an intercolonial committee of correspondence to consult in the crisis with other committees.

1614 Adrian Block's map of his voyage, with the first appearance of  the term "New Netherlands" (born c. 1567 - burial April 27, 1627) was a Dutch private trader and navigator who is best known for exploring the coastal and river ares between present-day New Jersey and Massachusetts during four voyages from 1611 to 1614, following the 1609 expedition by Henry Hudson. He is noted for naming Block  Island, Rhode Island, and established early trade with the Native Americans, and the 1614 map of his last voyage on which many features of the  Mid Atlantic region appear for the first time, and on which the term New Netherlands is applied to the region. He is credited with being  the first European to enter Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River and to determine that Manhattan and  Long Island are Islands. Through spending much of his time on sea, Block called Amsterdam his home his entire life. There, on October 26, 1603, he married Neeltje Hendricks Van Gelder, with whom he would have five children between 1607 and 1615. In 1606 they moved into a house called "De Twee Bontecraijen" (The Two hundred Crows) on Amsterdam's Oude Woal street, where they  would live the rest of their lives.

3/23/12 12:02 p.m. e.s.t. ~ Entered information and map of Adrian Block and next entry of : Richard Nicolls born 1624 in Ampthill, Bedfordshire - Died on the North Sea, off Suffolk May 28, 1672. He was the first English colonial governor of New York Provence. He commanded a royalist troop of horse during the English Civil War, and on the defeat of the king went into exile. Soon after the Restoration he became Groom of the Chamber to the Duke of York, through whose influence he was appointed in 1664 on a commission with Sir Robert Carr (d.1667), George Cartwright and Samuel Maverick, to conquer New Netherlands from the Dutch and to regulate the affairs of the  New England colonies and settle disputes among them. The expedition set sail from Portsmouth on 25 May 1664, and New Amsterdam was surrendered to Nicolls on 8  September 1664. Under authority of a commission from the Duke (later King James). Nicolls assumed the position of deputy-general  of New Netherlands (New York).

His policy was vigorous but tactful, and the transition to the new regime was made smooth and with due regard to the interests of the conquered people. The formerly Dutch colonists were guaranteed in the possession of their property rights their laws of inheritance, and the enjoyment of religious freedom. The English system of law and administration was at once introduced into Long Island, Staten Island and Westchester, where the English element already predominated, but the change was made much more slowly in the Dutch sections. A code of laws, known as the "Duke's Laws" drafted by the governor with the help of his secretary, Matthias Nicolls (c. 1630-1687), and dated  12 March, was proclaimed at Hempstead, Long Island, on 1 March  1665 and continued in force until 1683; the code was compiled from the codes of the New England Colonies and it provided for trial by  jury, for proportional taxation on property, for the issuance of new patents for land and for land tenure only by license from the duke. Nicolls returned to England in the summer of 1668 and continued in the service of the Duke of York and was replaced by Francis Lovelace as governor. He was killed in the naval battle of Southwold Bay on 28 May 1672.

Francis Lovelace ~ (1621-1675) was an English Royalist and second Governor of New York Colony.

Ancien Regime ~  Refers primarily to the aristocratic, social and political system established in France from approximately the 15th century to the 18th century under the late valois and Bourbon dynasties. The term is French for "Former Regime", but rendered in English as "Old (or Ancient)", "Old Order". The term dates from the  Age of Enlightenment (first appearing in print in English in 1794). Europe's other ancien regimes had similar origins, but diverse fates: Some eventually evolved into Constitutional Monarchies, whereas others were torn down by wars and revolutions.

Ancien Regime = Territorial Expansion ~ In the mid 15th century, France was significantly smaller than it is today, and numerous border provinces were either autonomous or belonged to the Holy Roman Empire, the Crown of Aragon or the Kingdom of Navarra; there were also foreign enclaves, like the Comtat Venaissin. In addition, certain provinces within France were ostensibly personal fiefdoms of noble families (like the Bourbonnais, Marche, Forez and Auvergne provinces held by the House of Bourbon until the  provinces were forcibly integrated into the royal domain in 1527 after the fall of Charles III, Duke of Bourbon).

Interests of David George DeLancey : Art Economics History : As for Art I like to use Oils on Canvas; although I do occasionally experience Pastels and Acrylics, and painting music is a concern of mine and is very time consuming. As far as Economics why not we all somewhat experience economics in everything we do. And for History it is a pleasure to research any form of history, although since I am dedicated to being a very positive person I shall conduct my research and when displaying any character of researchable history I shall not display any hard core characteristics of War. The terming of War and any other linguistic terming we shall always bare. I personally feel for the characteristics of our linguistic terms and or words. May the law of judgement be on your every situational venture. Good Morning, Good Day and Good Night.

Another quite interesting factor of mine is Government. I respect the knowledge of government. It is in our behalf that government will always be. Anything pertaining to Government will immediately be enforced by government. As we are the governed we in respect will enforce our laws as recommended. Being the Government and enacting laws we shall see the circumstance of government. We will always seek new ventures, and when pertaining to our government when a new should arise we will venture again the seeking of others. In this manner we shall see time pass as the slow motion of a train at very start with plunder and exhaust to yet again push the needs of a governed situation towards the innocence of kind. May our guiltiness in personal matter excel our innocence towards others.

8:51 p.m. e.s.t. Incoming information of the Presidency I am to assist with, if your voting degree allows it. Although the incoming information is of the character that; that position is to be acknowledged, so to  better acquaint myself to you of "My Five Issues Plan" I will be acknowledging the presidential position and if I get elected I promise of course on your behalf to do the job recommended. That will be on all other issues as well as my five issue entry attempt to secure a nation economically, from the asset, distributional matters of our national currency and the collection of taxes. Taxes are of the national sales tax and the state income tax required by the states to economically operate that issue. Of course each state will be sufficiently in the capabilities of the Federal Government. When the Federal is collecting the sales taxes and paying for Military it will also sufficiently cover the States, for it is in acquisition that since the federal distributional efforts of a fundamental currency are in circulation through the states in order to be affiliated with the assets and backers who then through expenditure revenue the tax the state will then be applied with a sufficient coverage when not applied through an income bases. Sometimes you got it , sometimes you don't.

My Five Issue Plan - Is Of : A One Percent Sales Tax On The Dollar and a Half A Cent From .01 cent to .99 cents : Distribution Of Funds To Everyone Over The Age Of Twenty-One the estimate now is of  $4040.00 sales tax included : A State Tax Withheld From Ones Paycheck to cover State and Federal Needs : Disable Persons Get More : Retired Persons Get More. Those are my five issues If from now until you decide that it is worthy, then I have sold my idea to you and in regards to you, that in factor of the idea, you have sold yourself. In this matter is the reason of the $40.00 added to the $4000.00, It is in fact a sale. Situational Awareness Leading Everywhere. SALE. But to each it's own. And that's a fact. Till next time with the DeLancey History Files, DeLancey Factor, DeLancey Faction and the DeLancey Official Action. Review all these talents on the web. I'm off now to secure them; you'll never know what history in fact will offer unless the talent is applied. Heck I may even doze off trying! 9:12 p.m. Wait till I loose a little weight and my jaw is more distinctive. _____________ Well Another Rampage to Conquer __________________________________ -W__-A______-R... ...the more of, is always the better of, so as is', is the conquering of settlement; note why I did not recommend "a"--or--"another"-before the term __ settlement. For this reason of the acknowledgement that a settlement will always  accrue it is the factor of judgment that needs to be secure. Notice how we all in our own individualism have a self conquering venture. For it will be secured whether it is by our own satisfaction or the  accompanying of a satisfaction that can be lived on with or amongst another. In regards to a faction once it is secured, a first attempt to  deal with, then an economic will sequence the venture of the  benefactor, perhaps of self achievement. We will always have competition, though it is the first initial balance that will always secure a factoring status. Status can also represent a statute. Hey I'm a funny guy all I want is the national awareness of a distributed currency to the overall population, what you do with your personal life is your business.  That means keep your-self to yourself and distribute only to your overall government what we all intend to distribute. Distribution is one of the more important words in the dictionary I will always defend. And may I suggest that my realization of the terming of words is of great importance, and through time of course like anything else will be through the adjustment of realization that aspects of belief will always carry a norm "normal" appearance and settlement of talent. In shortness we may just get so used to an aspect that we may not think twice about it. Thats ok just as long as we can still get along, and as far as I can tell  it takes this fundamental $,"Money". Here is how I got started with the one of many interesting values of the terming's of words. As a Truck Driver when  the CB and Radio was the only option beside a team driver or some other passenger' oops. Was the thought of what is. So I spelled out certain words took those letters and made coherent sentences with them. The start was of this terming; Thank You. : To Help Another Needed Keeper You Oughto Understand. I haven't yet sentenced out that phrasing only because other references had kept me involved with balance, security and understanding of then to behalf feelings. I always eliminate the safety that I will hold meanings just for myself or yet just allow them to go towards others. My real value is finding a meaningful settlement of a wording to enhance a sentence as to let go but yet accept it. There will always be two or three real medium words to every letter in a word to define a comfortable representation, but yet just one will secure the tendency. Again till next time. Keep it within and you won't get your---Beauty Understands Tender Talent - Keep It Collecting Keeper Expressing Desire - Inviting Nation oops, Perhaps through another door we shall go through again, with Art Economics History. 9:39  p.m. Somewhere in the Southeastern part of Massachusetts for now.

It is a form of direct democracy.

A proposed situation can be found in the Declaration of Independence.

In the United States there is no initiative process at the national level, but the initiative is in use at the level of state government in 24 states and the District of Columbia, and is also in common use at the local government level.

Taken from Wikipedia's Article on : History of the United States: "Political Machines" had control of the government in the decades of the nineteenth century. Most presidents were chosen by political machines and were corrupt. The government could do little, because the Presidents did not have control of Congress. Leaders of big businesses often had more power than the government. At this time, there were several very big businesses called trusts. People who ran trusts made millions of dollars while paying workers in their factories low wages. Some of these people were John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and J.P. Morgan. reviewed 9/29/11

Written on 2-6-2012 ___ Establishing An Economics War Of Balance __ In the Establishment of the United States of America, economics continues to evolve in every circumstance. As a whole united country the established balance of the economy starts with the appropriation  of taxes. Collection of taxes as an economical venture is amongst the distribution of a national currency. During its time individual spending of said currency in the sufficient manner is the continuance of said collection of taxes. In this manner of spending and collection the  country in association with legal and binding affiliates associates trade and sale.

Within each state appropriated within the country of the United States of America taxes are situated as a source to accommodate state needs.  This appropriated state tax differs from the national sales tax, with understanding of "My Five Issue Plan" a state has an income tax and the national tax is a sales tax. The state appropriations are of the Income Tax. People supply an income which through that an income tax is collected by the state for state spending. The overall sales tax collected by the Federal Reserves may step in and help state spending, this in the values in which the state is providing the security of monies being branched out throughout the united states.

As to when spenditure is in an economic establishing it can, or may generate capital to establish an economic income. This income provided by self determination is a fair junction of establishing provisions for one or from one to another.

The state as an individual entity within the country collects a set "provided" tax from the accumulation of income. This provides for state needs, and or issues.

In the manner of the "National Currency" in circulation within the country, each state has appropriations as to secure said monies. These funds are of the acceptance of the citizens of the country who are affiliated, joined and or from said state.

Banking of these issues as a whole and or equal accountability branches the circulation of said trade and continues the circulation of established performance of said country.

Money being branched out as a tool in continuance of the equal trade agreement allows the overall collection of usage, which by said revenue allows for a strong economic establishing. 

As "Distribution" is established through time transaction and or trade,  the sales taxes being applied collects overtime. A single note can or may generate substantial balances. (Revenue)

The use of checks, and credit cards and other payment recommendations issues the situated currency a longer period of usage before being worn, and or damaged and or lost. Through time and the established economic balance the federal reserves bank and other affiliate branch banks evaluate its consistency. 

This being "within a reason" of an economic establishing creates the abundance of surety, security, and a war like effort to secure a nation.

Boundaries within this country are limited to the balance of trade.

In order to have trade there has to be an economic balance of establishment. The people of the United States of America are equally involved as being an asset to trade and or even towards trade, by only the circumstance of being and accepting the "citizenship" of the United States of America.

On  May 6, 1691, the House passed "an Act for the Establishing of Courts of Judicature for the ease and benefit of each respective City, Town, and County within this province" : The act changed the town courts into Courts of General Sessions for each of the counties; also it made for a Court of Chancery the same provisions that had been made by the act  of 1683. But the most important feature in the act was the creation of a Supreme Court. It declared that a Supreme Court of Judicature should be established in the city of New York, to be composed of a Chief Justice and four assistant judices, to be appointed by the Governor; and that it  should have cognizance of all actions, civil, criminal or mixed, as fully and amply as the courts of Kings Bench, Common Pleas or Exchequer of England, and should have power to establish rules and ordinances, and  to regulate the practice of the court.

Next entry - Researched on 9-23-2011 William Burnet (Administrator) (March 1688 - 7 September 1729) was a British civil servant and colonial administrator who served as governor of New York and new Jersey  (1720-1728) and Massachusetts (1728). He was the son of Gilbert Burnet, the Bishop of Salisbury, and Mary Scott. He was born at the Hague in the Netherlands in March 1688. A tutor of his had been (Issac Newton). He was Comptroller of Customs in England before his terms as colonial governor. His first wife a daughter of Dean Stanhope died 1717. His second wife he married in New York in 1722, to Anna Maria Van Hoxe, and had three children. Governor of New York; In 1720, following a depression caused by fluctuating currencies of New York and Pennsylvania, James Alexander and the many of the assemblymen called for a new paper currency. In 1726, Burnet took a census of New Jersey, totalling 32,442 people.

Antipropietary men in the New Jersey Assembly did not openly criticize Burnet, but attempted to remove Morris from his position and failed. As a result, in 1722 Burnet created a second assembly, which would later pass the Loan Act in 1723.

His most important accomplishment as governor of New York was to strengthen the colony's position on the frontier. Burnet encouraged  direct trade with Indian tribes to reduce the influence of French trades. Many of the goods bartered with the Indians for furs were produced locally, while the French imported theirs. Because of this British  colonists could undercut French prices. he convened a meeting at Albany in 1722 of representatives from several colonies, that resulted in peace with Indian tribes for several years in New York, although the northern New England provinces were engulfed in Dummer's War.

But the costs of his actions earned opposition from established forces, like the DeLancey family. (It also interfered with their profits from selling goods to French fur traders). The crown replaced him in 1728 not for this dispute but to make room for John Montgomerie who was favored by King George II He was reassigned as governor of  Massachusetts and New Hampshire and left New York on 15 April 1728, when his replacement arrived.

We often do a duty by the way we are learned and also by self interest, although by reason, reason will usually succeed instead of opposition. This in fact takes time and is why some forms of Government do not exist and or if so seen to be acknowledged, will only be endured through representation. Certain representations are caused by laws in which can enable a subject to conquer.

Burnet is best known in Massachusetts for his hard-nosed attempt to  force the provincial assembly to grant crown officials (including the governor) a permanent salary. Since the institution of the royal charter in 1692, the assembly had resisted this, choosing instead to make periodic grants to the governor. Local politicians found this an effective mechanism for influencing the governor to promote their policies, since the governor would never know when the next grant would be made, or how large it would be.

Like other governors appointed to Massachusetts, Burnet was instructed to secure a salary. He chose to take an extremely hard  line : He refused to conduct any other business, or to dissolve the legislature, until the salary was decided. The legislature in turn refused to enact a salary bill. Burnet, in order to make life as difficult as possible for the legislators, relocated the assembly from Boston first to Salem and then Cambridge, increasing the costs of the legislators and facing many of them the comforts of their Boston - area properties. The legislators responded by sending Frances Wilkes and Jonathan Belcher as agents to London to argue the province;s case before the Board of Trade. The dispute was ongoing when Burnet died in Boston from a stroke on 7 September 1729. Burnet was succeeded in office by Belcher.

Revenue ~ In business, revenue is income that a company receives from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers.

Revenue is something that needs to be collected. Without the creation  of a revenue, a revenue cannot be collected. Government revenue includes all amounts of money (taxes and / or fees) received from sources outside the government entity. {taken from wikipedia}  {Although I'm not so agreeable on the terming of "the government entity and out side of it", perhaps the entity is jurisdiction and anything outside of it, jurisdiction being, being any pertaining law, search and lesson continues. -D.G.DeLancey] Large governments usually have an agency or department responsible for collecting government revenue from companies and individuals. {A State can also be considered as an individual as then, perhaps an entity. -D.G.DeLancey- This now appears to be unjustified because not all American Individuals have money.} No problem for a Company that's coorporated, although this Country is  being represented as a Company through the organizational writings in Lieu of the Bureau  of the Public Debt. +++++ D.G.DeLancey --- So in all right there is a problem - +++

Throughout the years, the country's  needs and interests became more complex. This meant that statistics were needed to help people understand what was happening and have a basis for planning. The content of the decennial census changed accordingly. There were so many inquiries of all kinds of census in 1880 such as manufacturers, quantity and value of products accrued; In 1840, inquiries on fisheries had been issued, In 1850 issued census on social issues, such as taxation, churches, pauperism, and crime. The census spread geographically, to new states and territories added to the Union, as well as to other area's under U.S. sovereignty and jurisdiction. In 1890 a mechanized tabulating machine in quantity made by herman Hollerith reduced the processing time from a decade to two and a half years.

It is still 3/11/12 now 2:19 p.m. with the a portion of the Franks  family; a Jewish family whom resided in New York. --------------------- Phila Franks (1722-1811), married Oliver DeLancey. Senior officer of the British Army in America. This branch of the family moved to England at the turn of the War. He died 1785. Phila continued in England where her daughters married prominent men and her sons made names for themselves.

Originally from England, the Franks family were Colonial Merchants who settled in New York City during the 1700's.

Correspondences of Abigail Franks in New York to her son, Naphtali, in England.

Bilhah Abigail Levy (circa 1696-1756 was born to Moses and Rachel Levy German Jews who had immigrated to London and then moved  to America at the turn of the 18th century.

Jacob (1688-1769) also immigrated from England to New York in the 1700's and boarded in the levy household. In 1712, Franks wed sixteen-year old Abigail Levy. They were married for forty-four years and had nine children.

Naphtali (1715-1796) called "Heartsey a Yiddish nickname meaning 'dear heart', was the eldest. He was sent to his fathers relatives in London to enter the family merchant business and to ensure he  marry a Jewish woman. He married his first cousin, a daughter of Jacob's brother Issac Frank (?-1736) and became an important  member of the London  Jewsish Community.

Phila Franks (1722-1811 DeLancey's wife... another daughter Phila's sister, Richa close in age to Phila was probably born sometime before 1717. She was courted by a member of the Gomez family, a leading Sephardic family in New York. However, Abigail Franks regarded the man as a "stupid wretch" and Richa rejected his proposal.

Another son David Franks (1720-1793), youngest son of Jacob and  Abigail Franks, was one of the first Jews to settle in Montreal. David Salisbury Franks joined the American colonists in the battle against the British in Canada. Following the colonists 'defeat there, he retreated  to Philadelphia and joined the Continental Army. David served as an Aid- de-Camp to Benedict Arnold, the military governor of Philadelphia, and was later cast under suspicion of disloyalty when Arnold's treason became known. Franks was subsequently cleared of all charges, promoted, and took part in numerous highly important diplomatic missions for the United States, including one to Paris where he delivered to benjamin Franklin the treaty that officially ended the Revolutionary War and established American Independence. However, his association with Arnold continued to plague him, and his political enemies were able to use it to have  him dismissed from the diplomatic corps in 1786. Franks fought to have  his reputation restored, and did subsequently hold other government positions. He died in poverty from yellow fever in 1793, and was rescued from Potter's Field by a  Christian neighbor, who had him interred in Christ Church's Burial Yard in Philadelphia.

Issac Franks (1759-1822), a cousin to the Levy-Franks, fought in the battle of Long Island in the revolutionary War, and was and aid-de-camp to George Washington, with whom he maintained a lengthy relationship. He later settled in Philadelphia, and was involved in numerous business endeavors. It was to Issac Franks house in Germantown Pa. that Washington relocated the seat of government during a yellow fever epidemic in 1793. In 1794, Franks, received a Lt. Colonel's commission from Pennsylvania's governor, hence fourth becoming known as Colonel Franks.

Hunt Family ~ Lieutenant-Colonel Benjamin Hunt, the Loyalist son of Thomas Hunt of Eastchester. A widow, Mercy Hunt, whose will  proved July 5, 1762, mentions sons Jeremiah, Pexall, and Benjamin. Thomas Hunt whose will was proved Nov. 6, 1770; and 4th Benjamin Hunt, Junior, eldest son. There were actually four Benjamin Hunts. The family were supposed to have descended from a younger son of  Thomas Hunt  of Shrewsbury, Shropshire in 1613, which would mean that Thomas the immigrant ancestor was such younger son or a son of his of the same name "Thomas". There is also a Thomas Hunt that was Sheriff of Shropshire and a colonel in the Parliamentary Army.

The Arms assigned to the family are the same as given in Burke's  General Armory to the Hunts of Longnor, Shropshire. A name of Bolton  is of reference of these factors. Bolton in affiliation with the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. The immigrant ancestor of this family like the immigrant ancestor of the great Washington himself was a Royalist and member of the Church of England, escaping from the rule of the victorious enemies of the Church and Crown, and his descendants for the most part, continued to be attached to the Church of England for several generations. They are frequently referred to as Church Officials. Some of this family in the early generations united with the Society of Friends.

Thomas Hunt was of Stamford, Connecticut., in 1650 and 1653,  probably of Rye, N.Y.., in 1652, and removed to Westchester where he obtained, Dec. 4, 1667, from Governor Nichols a patent for the "Grove Farm" which was "ratified and confirmed" to him by Governor Dongan in 1686 (Bolton, iip.268-9). He died 1694. His wife's name is Cecilia, no notice yet of her maiden name. He had sons. 1. Thomas Hunt Jr. before 1644; married in 1665 to Elizebeth Jessup. His eldest son Thomas, born 1666, died Oct. 1739 age 73 m. Elizabeth Gardiner.  Thus the second Thomas was at first known as Thomas Hunt Jr., and after his son  Thomas became of age, as Thomas Hunt Sr. of (the town of) West Farms, while the first Thomas Hunt became Thomas Hunt Sr. of the Grove Farm. When the first Thomas died his grandson Thomas had been of age and an active participant in the affairs of the community for seven years, destined himself to become in time  Thomas Hunt, Sr., and so these Thomas Hunts, Senior and Junior, are more or less confused by Bolton and Wyman. One thing is abundantly clear; they were all men of position, influence and usefulness.

The Hunt Family came into possession of Hunt's Point at the extremity  of Planting Neck in West Farms by marriage of Thomas Hunt to the daughter of Edward Jessup. It will be seen that there is also a Hunt's Point in Nova Scotia.

They are described as Trustees of the Freehold and Commonality of Westchester.

James DeLancey "Outlaw of the Bronx and the head of the famed "DeLancey Cowboys" married to Martha Tippett. These are my 5th Great Grand Parents whom ended up in Nova Scotia at the end of the Revolutionary War. I believe there was one child of theirs born in New York City. James was as well as John, his older brother Stephen and father Peter, Sheriff of Westchester County and during the Revolution. He was of the time neutral and stayed in the county of Westchester NY. He was the only one in charge of that area as far as  I can tell, perhaps there were positions of the British there as well  due to his uncle Oliver being General and head of the DeLancey Brigade New York's Police Force, which was obtained before the  start of the war due to violent riots and activity in the area. The  DeLancey Brigade served throughout the colonies. Heavily in Georgia they  were and were the last of the British to leave. As other formed militia  units and some for some time being independent the DeLancey Brigade was in course of the pertaining government which under the standards of law and the justice system had been in force with the British Military. In all regards if the DeLancey Faction rebelled against the British they would have rebelled also  against the Revolutionaries for the opposing efforts were in the sights of the DeLancey Faction in which being involved with the DeLancey Brigade operated by Oliver DeLancey Sr. and other DeLancey family members with friends and other allied correspondences. The DeLancey Faction held a form of government and knew taxation was a basis of operating a governmental system, in all aspects the DeLancey faction would of been at the top levels of agreements with the British and the Revolutionaries. As we can see further into the creation of the United States opposing sides continued to somehow operate a governmental system and which included taxation and a sense of a monetary system. This pertaining venture we will see has involved individuals that would measure some self influence and character of obtaining the balances and or measure of a governmental system. It  is a reconcilable issue to understand what a governmental system is. {The last ten sentences here were adjust and added on 3/23/2012 at 10:48 p.m.

Even during this time of the Revolution there were opponents of each colony in opposition with each other. Perhaps resolved by the  Declaration of Independence of 1776 at least the colonies could try and support a government.

3/15/12 12:13 p.m. In 1635 Thomas Willet, George Baxter and divers other families from Massachusetts settled with the Dutch on Manhattan. They probably returned to Massachusetts often, for William Paddy was treasurer of Plymouth Colony from 1640 to 1653. Many  deeds were signed by him as witness, on which appear also as  witnesses the names of Capt. Thomas Willet and Ensign George Baxter. His wife's name is not given, but tradition gives her the name of Mary Adams. He probably married her in Massachusetts. The Baxter's Memorial speaks of a Gregory Baxter who settled at Roxbury, Mass., 1630. His daughter Abigail married Joseph Adams and they were the grandparents of John Adams, second President of the United States. Mary Adams remains to be seen of the Braintree famly. It is a long Baxter tradition that then George Baxter was the first ancestor on American soil who then married Mary Adams.

In 1635 the fur-trade was the only industry of New Netherland. Farming was scarcely attempted; in fact the soil of Manhattan was not well adapted for tillage. A profitable intercourse was carried on with New England, especially with newport, by means of small vessels, which were constantly passing between them.

Dutch vessels early brought tobacco, salt, horses, oxen, and sheep from Holland to Boston. An old account says "They came from the Texal, in five weeks and lost not one beast or sheep". Potatoes from Bermuda were worth two-pence a pound, a good cow, twenty-five  or thirty pounds (about Two Hundred Dollars). Thus a settler's cattle were by far the most valuable of his possessions. The Indians knew this and generally began hostilities by slaughtering the cattle.

In 1638, Manhattan Island was almost, a wilderness, and excepting the Indians it was inhabited only by a few traders and clerks in the service of the Dutch West India Company. The soil remained almost entirely uncultivated, and the bowery's or farms only numbered half a-dozen.

The first street layed out was Pearl Street, in 1633, it was then on  the banks of the river.

August 20, 1641. Deed. Jan Schepmos to George Baxter and Walter Harfoot, of his house and Plantation. George's success in farming was  not very good. The English on Manhattan had about that time (1641) formed a settlement called Hopton, just opposite the lower end of Blackwell's Island and on Manhattan

1642. The increasing number of English men at New Amsterdam made it necessary to have a more regular means of communication with them,  as Keift and his councillors were quite ignorant of the English language. George Baxter, an English gentlemen of education, was appointed English secretary by Gov. Keift at an annual salary of two hundred and fifty guilders ($200). This was the first official recognition of the English language at New Amsterdam.

In the spring of 1643 an Indian war broke out, Eleven Tribes of Indians numbering about two thousand warriors, declared war against the Dutch settlers. Most settlers fled to the fort. Outside the fort walls had been also of refuge, closely netted huts were set up for  the protection. This  is when 2 or 3 other streets were formed around the southern and eastern walls of the fort, after the clearing of the war. After the danger had passed these houses were permitted to remain and grants of the  land were made to the possessors. Thus were formed that portion of the present Pearl Street. On Pearl Street, near its junction with Whitehall was the house of George Baxter, and at the junction of Whitehall and State Streets were the house of Thomas Baxter. These two Baxter's were brothers,  according to J. F. Innes, in his "People of New Netherlands"

Four Dutch and Four English towns were represented by ten Dutch and nine Englishmen delegates. Baxter and Hubbard were the delegates from Gravesend. A  remonstrance to the States-General was drawn up. Dec. 1, 153, by George Baxter, and adopted by the convention. Though drawn up by baxter it was signed by every delegate. At this time England and  Holland were at war.

1654. ___ Baxter retired into New England. A Mr. Baxter is mentioned  as being a planter in Connecticut in that year. It was probably George Baxter. Early in 1655 Baxter returned, and on March 9, 1655, Baxter, Hubbard and Groves raised the English flag and claimed Long island for the Republic of England. George Baxter read this Declaration: _______ "We as individuals to the English nation, here present, do for divers reasons and notions, claim and assume to ourselves, as free-born English subjects, the laws of our nation, the republic of England, over the place as to our persons and property,  in love and harmony, according to the general peace between the two states in this country. God almighty preserve the republic of England, the Lord Protector, and also the continuance of peace between the two countries. Amen".

She was also an heiress to  the crowns of England and Ireland and later the crown of Great Britain,  a country she never visited. She was declared heiress presumptive to Queen Ann of England, Ireland and Scotland by the Act of Settlement 1701, which was passed by the English parliament and therefore only applied to the Kingdom of England (which included Wales) and the Kingdom of Ireland. A few years later, the Kingdom of scotland agreed  to accept the Hanoverian succession for the new single thrown of a new country, the Kingdom of Great Britain that Scotland and England had agreed to unite as and which come into being under the Acts of Union 1707. Sophia, a granddaughter of James Vi and I, died less than two months before she would have became queen; her claim to the thrown passed on to her oldest son, George Louis, Elector of Hanover, who ascended them as George I on August 1, 1714. Old Style.

In the 17th Century, Europe was undergoing expansive social, cultural, and economic growth. In the Netherlands this is known as the Dutch Golden Age. Nations vied for domination of lucrative trade routes across the globe, particularly those to Asia.

Dutch Republic ~ was a republic in Europe existing from 1581 to  1795, until the 16th century, the Low Countries - roughly now corresponding to netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg consisted of a number of duchies, counties and bishoprics, most of which were under the supremacy of the Holy Roman Empire. Most of the Low Countries had came under rule of the House of Burgundy and subsequently the House of Habsburg. In, 1549 Holy Roman Emperor Charles V issued the Pragmatic Sanction, which further unified the Seventeen Provinces under his rule. Charles was succeeded by his son, King Philip II of Spain. In 1568 the Netherlands,  led by William I of Orange, revolted against Philip II because of ("high taxes"), persecution of Protestants by the government, and Philip's efforts to modernize and centralize the devolved - medieval government structures of the provinces. This was the start of the Eighty Years ' War. In 1579 a number of the northern provinces of the Netherlands signed  the Union of Utrecht, in which they promised to support each other in their defense against the Spanish Army. This was followed in 1581 by  the Act of Abjuration, the declaration of independence of the provinces from Philip II.

Counter-Reformation ~ (also called Catholic Revival or Catholic Reformation) was the period of Catholic revival beginning with the Council of Trent (1545-1563) and ending at the close of the Thirty Years' War, 1648 as a response to the Protestant Reformation. The Counter-Reformation was a comprehensive effort, composed of four major elements : 1. Ecclesiastical or structural reconfiguration. 2. Religious orders. 3. Spiritual movements. 4. Political dimensions.

Protestant Reformation ~ The efforts of the self-described "reformers", who objected to ("protests") the doctrines, rituals, and ecclesiastical structure of the Roman Catholic Church, led to the creation of new national Protestant Churches. The Reformation  began as an attempt to reform the Roman Catholic Church by priests who apposed what they perceived as false doctrines and ecclesiastic malpractice. The Protestant Reformation began on 31 October 1517  in Wittenberg, Saxony, where Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Thesis on the  Power and Efficacy of Indulgences to the door of the Castle church, in Wittenberg.

1:45 P.M. E.S.T. Continuing from above paragraphical venture of the Dutch Republic ~ In 1582 the United Provinces invited Francis, Duke of Anjou to lead them; but after a failed attempt to take Antwerp in 1583, the duke left the Netherlands again. After the assassination of William  of Orange (July 10, 1584) both Henry III of France and Elizabeth I of England declined the offer of sovereignty. However Elizabeth agreed to turn the United Provinces into a protectorate of England (Treaty of Nonsuch, 1585), and sent the Earl of Leicester as governor-general. This was unsuccessful and in 1588 the provinces became a republic. The  Union of Utrecht is regarded as the foundation of the Republic of the Seven United Provinces, which  was not recognized by the Spanish  Empire until the Twelve Years Truce in 1609.

Sophia ~ Born to Frederick V. Elector Palatine, and Elizabeth of  Scotland, Queen of Bohemia, in 1630. Sophia grew up in the Dutch Republic, where her family had sought refuge after the sequestration of their Electorate during the Thirty Years' War.

Electoral Palatinate ~ The first hereditary Count Palatine of the  Rhine was Conrad of Hohenstaufen who was the younger brother of Frederick Barbarossa. "Electorate" ~ In the {Golden Bull of 1356}, the Palatinate was recognized as one of the secular electorates, and given the hereditary offices of Arch-Steward of Franconia, Swabia, the Rhine, and Southern Germany. From that time forth the Count Palatine of the  Rhine was usually known as the Elector Palatine. Due to the practice of dividing territories among different branches of the family, by the early 16th century junior line of the Palatine Wittelsbachs came to rule in Simmern, Kaiserslautern, and Zweibrucker in the Lower Palatine, and in Neuburg and Sulzbach in the Upper Palantinate. The Elector Palatine, now based in Heidelberg, adopted Lutheranism in the 1530's and Calvinism in the 1550's. When the senior branch of the family died out in 1559, the Electorate passed to Frederick III of Simmern, (Simmern Germany) a staunch Calvinist, and the Palatinate became of the major centers of Calvinism in europe, supporting Calvinist rebellions in both  the Netherlands and France.

Sophia is mother to: +George I of Great Britain (1660-1772) +Frederick Augustus of Brunswick-Luneberg (1661-91), Imperial General. +Maximillion William of Brunswick-Luneburg (1666-1726), Field Marshal in the Imperial Army. +Sophia Charlotte (1668-1705), Queen in Prussia. +Charles Philip of Brunswick-Luneburg (1669-90), Colonel in the  Imperial Army. +Christian of Brunswick-Luneburg (1671-1703). +Ernest Augustus of Brunswick-Luneburg Duke of York and Albany (1674-1728) became prince-bishopric of Osnabuck as Ernest Augustus  II.

Castle Island (New York) ~ In the City of Albany, Albany County, New York of over the past 400 years this place has been called Martin Gerritse's Island, Patroons' Island, Van Rensselaer Island, and since the late 19th century has been referred to as Westerlo Island. Van  Rensselaer Island is also the name of a former island opposite Albany, in the city of Rensselaer.

Albany County was created on November 1, 1683 by New York Governor Thomas Dongan, and later confirmed on October 1, 1691.

Dongan Charter is the 1686 document incorporating Albany New York as a city. Albany's charter was issued by Governor Thomas Dongan of the Province of New York, a few months after Governor Dongan issued a similarly worded, but less detailed charter for the city of New York. The charter is the oldest existing city charter still in force in the  United States and possibly in all the Western Hemisphere.  The City of Albany was created three years after the County of Albany.

Centeris Paribus ~ Translates as "with other things the same", or "all other things being equal or held constant". It is an example of an ablative absolute and is commonly rendered in English as "All other things being equal". A prediction, or a statement about causal or logical connections between two states of affairs, is qualified by  ceteris paribus in order to acknowledge, and to rule out, the possibility of other factors that could override the relationship between the antecedent and the consequent.

Human Rights ~ Accordingly by law ~ are "basic rights and freedoms that all people are entitled to ("regardless") < of nationality, sex,  age, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, language, or other status"

Virtue of being human ~ Virtue ethics ~ describes the character of a moral agent than rules (deontology), consequentialism (which  derives rightness or wrongness from the outcome of the act itself rather than character), or social context (pragmatic ethics).

Aristotle categorized the virtues as moral and intellectual. Aristotle identified nine intellectual virtues, the most important of which was wisdom; sophia (theoretical wisdom) and phronesis (practical wisdom). The other eight moral virtues include : Prudence, Justice, Fortitude, Courage, Liberality, Magnificence, Magnanimity, Temperance.

Something to do with the United States House of Representatives Historical Data ~ During the first half and mid 19th century; Regional conflict was most pronounced over the issue of slavery. One  example  of a provision repeatedly supported by the House but blocked by the Senate was the Wilmot Proviso, which sought to ban slavery in the land gained during the Mexican-American War. {source found at wikipedia} Conflict over slavery and other issues persisted until the Civil War (1861-1865), which began soon after several southern states  attempted to secede from the Union.

Wilmot Proviso ~ One of the major events leading to the Civil War, Congressman David Wilmot first introduced the Proviso in the United States House of Representatives on August 8, 1846 as a rider on a $2,000.000 appropriations bill intended for the final negotiations to resolve the Mexican-American War. (In fact this was only three months into the two-year war). It passed the House but failed in the Senate, where the South had greater representation. It was reintroduced in February 1847 and again passed the House and failed in the Senate. In 1848, an attempt to make it part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo also failed. Sectional conflict over slavery in the Southwest continued up to the Compromise of 1850. After an earlier attempt to acquire Texas by treaty had failed to receive the necessary two-thirds  approved of the Senate, the United States annexed the Republic of Texas by a Joint Resolution of Congress that required simply a  majority vote in each house of congress.  President John Tyler signed the bill on March 1, 1845 in the warning days of his presidency. As many expected, the annexation led to war with Mexico. After the capture of New Mexico and California in the first phases of the war,  the political focus shifted to how much territory would be acquired from Mexico. Key to this was the determination of the future status of slavery in any new territory. [source found at wikipedia]

Bank Charter Act ~ of 1844 - passed under the government of Robert Peel. It restricted the powers of British banks and gave exclusive note-issuing powers to the central Bank of England.

As it is seen history backers of bank notes supply a form of security.  It was wise to see a central bank, but it still recognized a self  interest of protecting a monetary system, now based as a central concern. Although the public in issue as well has again been limited. It is the interest rate issued, better known as a formed tax revenue  to the bank's asset's, the lenders and or security holders, that limit the currency. Currency meaning a certain flow of monetary discipline.

New York New Jersey Line War ~ Refers to a series of skirmishes and raids that took place for over a half a century between 1701 and  1765 at the disputed border between two America Colonies, the Province of New York and the Province of New Jersey

The King of Great Britain through the Royal Commission of 7 October 1769 appointed commissioners to establish what would become the permanent and final border that was southeast from the confluence of the Delaware and Neversink Rivers near Port Jervis of the Hudson  River. The New York and New Jersey legislatures ratified the compromise in 1772, and the King approved it on September 1773.

In early 1665 the Governor of the Royal Colony of New York, Colonel Richard Nicholls, received news that James the Duke of York, had granted a charter for New Jersey to two court friends, Sir George Carteret and John Lord Berkeley. Governor Nicholls immediately realized that the charter meant the loss of valuable land from the New York Colony, perhaps then being New Amsterdam for New York was nor named until about 1665 but continued somewhat in Dutch administration and or rule. The governor was compelled to write the Duke to tell him that the land compromising New Jersey as delineated in the charter.

Fur Traders in Canada trading with Native Americans 1777. 

From a wikipedia source. Early Organization ~ Captain Chauvin made the first organized attempt to control the fur trade in New France. In 1599 he acquired a monopoly from Henry IV and tried to establish a colony at the mouth of the Saguenay River (Tadoussac, Quebec).  French explorer, (and Coureur des bois-Etienne Brule, Samuel de Champlain, Radisson, La Salle, Le Saeur), while seeking routes  through the continent established relationships with Amerindians  and continued to expand the trade of fur pelts for items considered common by the Europeans. Mammal winter pelts were prized for warmth, particularly animal pelts for beaver wool-felt hats which  were an expensive status symbol in Europe. The demand for these beaver wool-felt hats was  such that the beaver in Europe and  European Russia had largely disappeared through exploitation.

In 1613 Dallas Carite and Adrian Block headed expeditions to  establish fur trade relationships with the Mohawk and Mohicans. By 1614 the Dutch were sending vessels to secure large economic  returns from fur trading. The fur trade of New Netherland, through the port of New Amsterdam, depended largely on the trading depot at Fort Orange (now Albany), where much of the fur is believed to have originated in Canada (not at this time used as the name Canada), smuggled by entrepreneurs who wished to avoid the government-imposed monopoly there.

England was slower to enter the American fur trade than France and Holland, but as soon as English colonies were established, it was discovered that fur provided the best way for the colonists to remit value back to the mother country. Furs were being dispatched from Virginia soon after 1610, and the Plymouth Colony was sending substantial amounts of beaver to its London agents through the 1620's and 1630's.

Aquitanian ~ It was later known as Gascony. Before the Roman Conquest, was one language that existed and went on well much later, until the Early Middle Ages. Evidence strongly suggest that it was a Vasconi language or group of languages that represent a precursor of the Basgue longuage. The most important of this is a series of votive and funerary texts in latin which contain about 400 personal names and 70 names of gods.

Aquitanian and its related descendent, Basque, are commonly thought to be a remnant of the languages spoken in Western Europe before the arrival of Indo-European speakers.

Artenacian Culture ~ Late Chalcolithic, c. 2400 BC. Some reaction to migrants of Danubian people into Western France. With abundant arrow heads, it is considred a culture of Bowmon people. Are believed to be ancestors of the historical Aquitaine.
