Lion Gardiner

M, b. circa 1599, d. 1663
     Lion was born circa 1599 at England.1 He married Mary Dirksdr Deurcant before 1635 at Worden, Holland.2,3
     
     
      Lion Gardiner

     
     
      Lion Gardiner
lived in one of the grand epochs of modern times; that which witnessed the rise of the Republic in Holland, the establishment of the Commonwealth in England, and the colonization of the Puritans in New England. He was born in the days of Queen Elizabeth, the House of Sturart. In the struggle between the King and Parliament, he adhered to the Parliament party; was a dissenter, and friend of the Puritans.
     
      Volunteering to maintain the Republican standard in Holland, he went thither with English allies under Lord Vere in the time of Charles I. Here he became Lieutenant of Engineers and Master of works of Fortification in the legers of the Prince of Orange in the Low Countries. While there, eminent Puritans, acting for a company of Lords and gentlemen approached him with an offer to go to New England in company with John Winthrop Jr. build a Fort with houses for men of Quality expecting to settle there, and lay out a town on the new plantation in project at the mouth of Connecticut River. The offer was accepted through the persuasion of Hugh Peters, pastor of a Church of English exiles at Rotterdam, and John Davenport a dissenting minister from London. He was to receive 100 pounds per annum for a term of four years, himself and family furnished transportation, and subsistence, to the place of destination, to serve the company only in the drawing, ordering and making of a city, town and Fort of defence, under direction of John Winthrop the younger.
     
      On 10 July 1635 Lion Gardiner left Worden, taking passage at Rotterdam for London, and on 16 August set sail for New England, being 3 months and 10 days from Gravesend to Boston. Early in 1636 the good ship "Batchelor" of twenty-five tons, which had carried himself and family safely from Holland to England and across the Atlantic, through many tempests, bore them safely to their destination. The passengers are mentioned as 12 men and 2 women with freight for the construction of the Fort. Iorn work for two drawbridges; consisting of 62 staples, 40 staple hooks for Port-cullis, 4 chains, 10 boults, 4 plates, 8 chain-clasps, 4 under-hinges, 23 1/2 yards of red flagg-stuff, small lines and a wheel-barrow are mentioned. Lieutenant Gardiners household consisted of himself aged 36, his wife Mary aged 34, Elizabeth Collett, maid servant age 23, and William Jope workmaster aged 40, who all brought certificates from a Calvinistic church in Holland.
     
      With the men and means at his command, a Fort of square hewn timber, with ditch and palisade, was soon consturcted; that could not be successfully assailed by approaches on firm ground. After commanding the fortress for four years, laying out into squares the entire acreage within the Neck-Gate, perambulating and surveying the country fro ten miles around, balzing trees and setting up mere-stones to mark the town-boundry, Lion Gardiner of trading closth from the Montauk Indians, an island laying adjacent to what is now the town of Easthampton on Long Island and which now bears his nam, he removed thither with his family; taking soldiers from the Fort to defend, and being under cultivation the 3000 acres his purchase comprised. It was the earliest English settlement within the limits of present State of New York.
     
      In Wyandance, a younger brother of the grand Sachem who lived on Shelter Island, he found a trusted friend. Gardiners Island being open to Indian depredations without such an ally, would have been a more hazardous spot than Saybrook Fort menace by 700 Pequot warriors. By such friendly relations, he was able to foil conspiracies against English settlements of older date. After 13 years on the Island, he removed to East-Hampton, where he died in 1656 aged 63 years. The Island which he gave to his wife, she bequeathed to her eldest son David; "en-tail" to the first male heirs following forever. Right to the Island was confirmed by grant from the Earl of Sterling, whose patent included territory in which it was embraced, after the islands of the Sound passed to New Netherlands. Under the grant, David Gardiner could make such laws as he pleased, for civil and church government; if "according to God and King."
     
      In 1664, the English having dispossed the Dutch at New Netherlands, Gardiner obtained from Governor Nichols a new grant, for a quitrent of 5 pounds a year. In 1683, the Island was attached to the County of Suffolk for taxable purposes. David Gardiner feeling aggrieved, petioned the Governor for relief; praying for an Independent Jurisdiction for the Island. Governor Dougans confirmatory grant, created the Island in 1686, "One Lordship and Manor of Gardiners Island". Practically this did not change anything, as the Island was created a Manor by the Earl of Sterlings grant to Davids frather Lion Gardiner. The original document conferring this title, with the unique seal of the Province, is a trophy still preserved; also the Geneva Bible with its family record in Lion Gardiners handwritting. Thus the early proprietors were authorized to call themselves "American Lords."
     
     




Lion died in 1663 at East Hampton, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.4

Dirck Willemsz Deurcant

M, d. before 1605
      The name Duercant, in its variety of spelling, is mentioned in the records as early as 1418, for on 27 February of that year Willem Duercant attaches his own seal to a document in behalf of the sheriff of "Gherwerscoep" (about 4 miles N.E. of Woerden in the province of Utrecht) who possibly had no seal of his own. This seal has Willem b. Duercant's name on it, and shows a fess and in chief a label with three points. During the following century another Willem Duercant is mentioned on 6 June 1519 a a landgenoot (landowner)in the landcourt district of Naaldwijk, 12 miles W.N.w. of Rotterdam, in a charter in the same collection as above. And about 50 years later there must have been again another Willem Duercant, whose son Dirck Willemsz. Duercant (the father of Lion Gardiner's wife) was in 1603 schepen at Woerden. According to the Orphan Chamber record Willem Duercant had tow other sons besides Dirck, viz. Pieter and Elbert Duercant.
     
      The parents of Lion Gardiner's belonged to the magistrate families of the small city of Woerden, at that time in the Province of Utrecht, at present in South Holland. Dirck was a schepen there in 1603 but died prior to 7 October 1607. His wife Haechje Bastiaens had a brother Pons Gerritsz.

John Gardiner

M, b. 10 April 1661, d. 25 June 1738
     
      "Cloth of Gold"

     
     
      It is a well authenticated fact that on or about 27 June 1699, Captain William Kidd, of pirate fame, visited Gardiner's Island. then in possession of it 3rd proprietor, John Gardiner (3) (grandson of Lion); and that, in exchange for certain supplies furnished him, Captain Kidd gave to John and his wife presents of cloth of various sorts, and placed in John Gardiners care, to be subsequently called for by Kidd, several bales and boxes containing gold, silver, jewels, and cloth of various sorts. After the arrest of Captain Kidd, John Gardiner reported to the government authorities the existence of this deposit, and subsequently turned it over to a government committee appointed to receive the same and took their formal reciept therefor.
     
     
      Among the gifts presented to John Gardiner and his wife Mary King was undoubtedly the "Cloth of Gold" (or "Kidd Blanket") which on account of the incidents attached to its acquisition became an heirloom in the family; and this heirloom, by the varying influences of family history, has passed from the possession of those bearing the Gardiner name and is now in the possession of the heirs of the late Mrs. Joseph Hobson, of Washington, D.C..
     
     
      It has also been said that the wife of John Gardiner Mary King was requested to roast a pig for Captain Kidd. She being afraid to refuse him, cooked it very nice, and he was much pleased with it, he then made her a present of this silk ("Cloth of Gold"), which she gave to her daughters. Which is true, whether it is in being; we know not; but this was handed down through the generations.
