Ref#32:

I only learned about my relationship to this branch of the HARRISONs,

WARDs & CONDIT/CUNDITTs recently, and also had the impression that

Richard was married to Sarah HUBBARD, although the "evidence" is

confusing. I'm very interested in exchanging info with you about this. I

have a couple of references, but have not had a chance to work back

through their references. Have you seen/used/debunked/confirmed any of

these:

1. "Ancestors and Family of Fillmore Condit (1855-1939) and Jane Condit

Robison (1882-1972). Part II of Robison Family History" by William Condit

Robison and Elizabeth Robison Jennings, Berkeley, CA: Privately

Published, 1985. This source includes the following: Sergent Richard

HARRISON (b ca 1620,England, d ? NJ; son of Ricard HARRISON) m Sarah

HUBBARD (b 1635 CT, d 1675 NJ) dau of George HUBBARD (1591-1683) and Mary

BISHOP (CA 1610-1673) dau of John BISHOP b in England. The authors cited

the following sources:

"Harrison Family" in Appendix to "Genealogical Record of the Condit

Family,1678 to 1885" Newark, NJ: 1885, reprinted 1980. [I have this one

and it does not provide Srgt. Richard's wife]

"Five Generations of Connecticut Harrisons", by Mrs. Frances Harrison

Corbin, in "The NEH&G Reg, vol 70, pp 69-86."The Pageant of NJ History"

William Lewin, Neward, NJ: 1926 [I have this- it is a play on the history

of Newark- does not contain genealogy, in fact none of the Harrisons are

listed in the cast of characters]

"Narratives of Newark From the Days of Its Founding" David Lawrence

Pierson,Newark, NJ: 1917. [I have this too- interesting, but no

genealogy] I think the only one of these sources that HUBBARD could have

come from is the Corbin article, which I will try to get the next time I

am at the library.

2. "Genealogical Notices of the First Settlers of Newark" Samuel H

Congar,Newark, NJ: NJ Historical Society, 1866.This source is cited by

many authors (e.g., Shaw in "History of Essex & HudsonCties") Congar does

not list a wife for Srgt Richard.

3. "The Harrisons of NJ - A Partial Genealogy" Jean Harrison Stokes

Childs,Newville, PA: Privately Published, 1990 This source states (and I

quote) "Richard HARRISON (1) b 1600 West Kirby, Cheshire, England m (1)

Sarah YORKE and (2) Margaret PICKE (according to NormanCondit) d 25 Oct

1655 Branford, CTChildren Richard (2) b 1620 West Kirby, Cheshire,

England m Sarah HUBBARD (dau ofGeorge) d 1690 Newark, NJ" [other children

& spouses follow] The author cites for this "New Haven Genealogical

Magazine, vol III, May 1926, vital statistics of New Haven and Branford."

She also states "HARRISON, Richard (d 1654), son of Thomas an uncle of

Gen. Thomas HARRISON, the regicide; grandson of Richard, twice mayor of

Newcastle-Under-Lyme, came from West Kirby, Cheshire, England 1640,

settled at New Haven, CT, later removed to Branford m. Sarah YORKE."

Childs' source for this is "Immigrant Ancestors - Extracted from Vol.

VIII, American Genealogy, edited by Frederick Adams Virkus, pub by

Genealogical PubCo, Baltimore, MD 1986." Childs then lists 6 other

sources:

"Second Boat", Nov 1980

"Harrisons of Berkeley" by Paul Warner

"Ancestry of Benjamin Harrison" by Charles Keith, 1893

The Condit book cited above

"Genealogies of CT Families", Vol II Gen Pub Co 1983

"Genealogical Mag of NJ" Vol 58, #1, p. 28 1-83

Later in her manuscript she again mentions Sarah HUBBARD giving as

source"Genealogy Guide to the Early Settlers of Americal" Henry

Wittemore. This is followed by a paragraph on Sarah HUBBARD's lineage.

Her sources on this are listed:

"New Haven Genealogical Magazine", vol III, May 1926

"History of Essex Co NJ Vol I XXXiii"

"Founders & Builders of the Oranges" Whittemore

Shaw's "History of Essex Co" [HUBBARD is not mentioned here]

"History of the Oranges" Pierson, Vol IV p. 14 [no HUBBARD here]

The Condit book cited above that does not list HUBBARD

"Genealogies of CT Families", Vol II Gen Pub Co 1983

Childs provides some other details about Srgt Richard and then states

that he died in Newark in 1690. She cites Jonathan Stearn's "First Church

in Newark"Newark, NJ, 1853 p. 80, but when I checked that book the author

said that Srgt Richard HARRISON died "about 1683 or 1684" and the in

context it seems a supposition rather than a documented fact. Richard W.

Cook in his article, "Richard HARRISON of Newark" Gen Mag of NJ 58:28-32,

1982 states that Richard was married to Sarah HUBBARD, dau of George and

Mary HUBBARD. At any rate, having grown weary of HARRISONs I looked at

"The Bishop Genealogy by William Cone & George Allen Root, Nyack, NJ:

John Guy Bishop, 1951. There on p. 1 it states that Mary BISHOP, dau of

John and Anne ? m George HUBBARD and their daughter Sarah HUBBARD married

Daniel HARRISON and rem to NJ. Sorry, I don't have their sources at the

moment.

 

From: Stephen Saviello <SteveSav@worldnet.att.net>

Sgt. Richard's house in Newark, NJ (Essex County) was across from the

town square on present day Broad Street. Sources say at the southwest

corner of Clay or Cedar St.
