Note
The earliest record of his presence in America, is his signature on a treaty renewing peace with the indian chiefs at Kingston. His name appears on subsequent peace renewals in 1679 and 1681. And he was one of the petitioners for a minister at Kingston in 1676; the same year he took out a patent for 108 acres of land at Marbletown. He was a prominent man in the area, being a Magistrate from 1676-1679, 1681 and 1682, held court as presiding judge on various occasions, was Sheriff of Esopus (Kingston was the center) in 1676 and from 1679-1683. He was temporarily removed under charges of malfeasance, but apparentyl vindicated himself. In 1683 he was one of 2 elected Assemblymen from Esopus to the first Newy York Assembly. One of the acts of the Assembly was to form counties from the various districts. Ulster County included Kingston, Marbletown, New Platz and other towns and vollages. When Ulster County was founded, he was the first Sheriff�s of that county. He left no written will, but declared it orally on 6 Nov. 1697 to several friends, who testified to it in court such that it was proved 24 Feb 1698. His wife appears to have kept the estate intact until her death in probably 1711, when the estate was divided among their children. Documents show that the 3 daughters were the heirs, Elinor wife of Thomas Cock, Catherine Asfordby, and Susan, wife of John Beatty Gary Boyd Roberts, in writing about changes to his developed lines of Royal descent for Americans, says �Other changes in lines from Edward III or Edward I can be partly grouped together. In order to show fairly near American kinsmen, via de la Poles, of the Habsburg descendants of Anne of Bohemia and Emperor Ferdinand I, I added a �cross-reference outline� to Hastings-Morley and/or Kelke-Girlington descents for the Blakistons of Md. and William Asfordby of N.Y.
