Notes 

  • Was deceased when his father Nicholas wrote his will on 19 Jan 1715. He owned a mill at Gravesend, NY in 1696. Moved to Middletown, NJ with his uncle Jeremiah about 1699, in which year he registered his cattle mark there. He re-registered it in 1703. Listed as deceased in his father's will, which was dated 19 Jan 1715. An inventory of his estate was made the same year.

    The property of Elias was inventoried on 30 Nov 1715 by Thomas Morford and Lewis Morris. He died intestate; appointed administrator of his estate was Richard Stanley of Monmouth Co., but he died before the estate was settled.

    AFN=HXM9-G2 and 2WK7-7T. AF lists 5 wives: (1) Mrs. Elias Stillwell (JZ36-LR), 6 children, including Nicholas b. 1699 (JZ36-MX); (2) Elizabeth Cornell (JZ36-XH), with children Richard and Jeremiah; (3) Catherine Huybert (JZ36-WB), no children; (4) Wife (Unknown) Stillwell (1259-472), with 6 children including Elias (BL21-6X), b. 1699 who married Meriam Eddy (BL21-74); and (5) Unknown, with 2 children, Richard Stillwell b. 1737 in New York and Jeremiah Stillwell b. 1739 in New Jersey.

    Cindy lists Rebecca Abagail Stillwell, b. about 1710 in Monmouth Co., NJ, a child of this marriage, stating that she married LaRue Jacob Truax about 1730 in Monmouth Co., NJ. She lists them as her 7th great grandparents. Neither JES nor the Ancestral File (AF) show her as a daughter.

    GenServ member Dale Larson (LARR7EA) of Rockport, TX traces a line from a daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley named Rebecca (Abigail) Stillwell and her husband La Rue Truax for 8 generations.

    Dewitt Stilwell discusses some details of his life on pages 44-45. Concerning his wife and children, he writes this:
    "He left children, which is shown by his father's will, but their names and the name of his wife are not known. He had the ear-mark for his cattle recorded at Middletown, N. J., July 24, 1699. He could not have been the Elias Stilwell who married Ann Barbank of Staten Island, as given in some records of the Stilwell family. It was possibly a son of his by the name of Elias who married Ann Barbank and had children:
    1. Elias Stilwell, baptized January 30, 1725.
    2. Daniel Stilwell, baptized March 24, 1727
    3. John Stilwell, baptized May 17, 1730" (1914, pages 45-46).

    Dian K. Loos-Conley, WFT Vol. 3 #1164, gives the wife of Elias as Ann Burbank, and traces a long line from Rebecca Abigail and LaRue Jacob Truax down to the Conley name, including herself and her daughter.

    Mark Kline, WFT V5 #3300, states that Rebecca Abigail, who married LaRue Jacob Truax, was the daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley. He follows this line nine more generations, in great detail.

    Gary Patriquin, WFT V13 #2505, states tht Rebecca Abigail, who married La Rue Jacob Truax, was the daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley. He follows this line for five more generations.

    Donna M. John, WFT V13 #3483, states that Rebecca (Abigail), who married La Rue Jacob Truax, was the daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley. She follows this line for nine more generations.

    After much evaluation of sources, I have included Rebecca Abigail as a daughter of Elias Stillwell and Unknown Stanley. Whether or not this is correct, it includes her and her Truax descendants in the main body of this database.

    His mother was Rebecca, the first wife of Nicholas Stillwell 2nd.
    He was given a generous legacy from his grandfather John Bayles of Jamaica, Long Island, NY, in 1682. He lived in Gravesend, and owned a tide-water mill there. He held property in the Neck in Gravesend. Along with his uncle, Jeremiah Stillwell, he moved to Middletown, NJ in 1698/9. An inventory of his estate was taken in 1715, and his father's will (Nicholas) mentioned him as deceased on Jan. 19, 1715. He died intestate and Richard Stanley of Monmouth Co. was administrator of his estate. "There is no record in existence that I know of, giving the children of Elias Stillwell. They are grouped here simply from data given under their respective names. They were of tender years when he died and were doubtless looked after by their uncle Capt. Jeremiah Stillwell." (Source: JESv3,pp.11-12).His mother was Rebecca, the first wife of Nicholas Stillwell 2nd.

    -----------------------------------
    Elias Stillwell (1665 - ????)

    Elias Stillwell, son of Nicholas Stillwell, the Second, was born probably prior to 1665. He was given a legacy of £7, in the will of his grandfather John Bayles, of Jamaica, Long Island, in 1682.

    1683. He appeared on the Tax List of Gravesend.

    1691, Dec. 12. He held property in the Neck in Gravessend.
    Court Records, Gravesend.

    1696, Dec. 26. He was apparently a miller, for at this time he owned a tide-water mill at Gravesend, and entered into an agreement with John Marsh, of Brooklyn, by which the latter agreed to repair the running gear and the millstones, so as to make the mill grind faster, for which be was to have a share in the said mill and its receipts. This agreement was signed by Elias Stillwell and John Marsh, and witnessed by Nicholas Stillwell, William Wilkins and Jacobus Emans.

    1696, Nov. 22. He bought a lot of land in Gravesend, from Stoffel Longstreet and his wife Macikenhane (?),of the Neversinks, N. J.

    1698. The King’s County Census of this year gives him:
    man woman children apprentices slaves
    English 1 1 0 0 0
    by which we can infer that be had only recently married, and if the deduction is right as to the probable date of his birth, 1665, he was then thirty-three years of age.

    1697/8, Mch. 12. He sold to Reynier Van Sicklen lot 13, containing two acres, on Guys-bert’s Island.

    1698/9, Jan. 13. He sold his dwelling-house and two garden-spots of land and the build-ings thereon, in Gravesend, to John Poling, one of which he had received from his brother Richard Stillwell.
    Having disposed of his Gravesend possessions, be moved to Middletown, N. J., with his uncle Jeremiah Stillwell, where he appeared in 1699, and registered his cattle mark.

    1703. He recorded his earmark for cattle in Middletown, then allowed to range the coun-try.

    1706. He was a witness to a deed in Middletown.
    Original owned by Dr. John E. Stillwell.

    1713. On the Grand Jury in Monmouth County, N. J., in the Court of Quarter Sessions, Middletown, 1st Tuesday in September.

    1715. An inventory was taken of his estate.

    1715, Jan. 19. His father, Nicholas Stillwell, in his will of this date, mentioned him as deceased, and devised to his children (without names) £25, and residuary interests in his estate.

    Elias Stillwell was in some manner, I believe, connected with the Stanley family, of Mon-mouth County, N. J.
    When his property was inventoried, Nov. 30, 1715, amounting to £36-16-6, by Thomas Morford and Lewis Morris, he was alluded to as late of Middletown, yeoman.
    Dying intestate, Richard Stanley, yeoman, of Monmouth County, was appointed administrator of his (Stillwell’s) estate, but Stanley dying before the estate was settled, his, Stanley’s widow, Sarah, presented her late husband’s accounts as such administrator, which amounted to £36-17-9~, a trifle in excess of the amount of the inventory. Sarah, the widow.

    Of Richard Stanley, was a daughter of Eleazor Cottrell, of Nutswamp, in Middletown, N. J., who died about the year 1727, leaving, in addition to this daughter Sarah, Sons Nicholas and Gershom Cottrell. Sarah Cottrell, the widow of Richard Stanley, married, second, Mr. Smith.

    Richd Stanley by his wife Sarah Cottrell had a son John Stanley who received money from his grandfather Eleazor Cottrell. This John Stanley resident of Mid’town,, Mon Co., N. J., died in 1750, leaving a will which gave property to his widow Grace and his god-daughter Margaret Frances with remainder of his estate to “oldest brother’s son, if any, and if not to his second brother’s son.

    There is no record in existence that I know of, giving the children of Elias Stillwell. They are grouped here simply from data given under their respective names. They were of tender years when he died and were doubtless looked after by their uncle Capt. Jeremiah Stillwell.

    "The STILLWELL GENEALOGY [by John E. Stillwell, MD] says Elias Jr's
    father was Elias, born about 1663, died 1713-1714 in NJ, son of Nicholas
    II and Rebecca BAYLES. It says that the name of his wife was unknown,
    but that she may have been a STANLEY. This account seems reasonable
    because:
    Elias Jr's grandson, John, son of John, said his grandfather came
    from NJ [Letter of Elias Jr's grandson, John, son of his son, John]:

    There is a will recorded in Monmouth County, NJ for an Elias
    STILLWELL who died about 1713, proved Nov. 30, 1715. It says he was
    of Middletown, but mentions no children [The Stillwell Genealogy, by
    John E. Stillwell, MD];

    The will of Nicholas II, who died 1715, leaves 25 pounds to the
    children of his son, Elias. This would SEEM to indicate that his son
    Elias had died before he, Nicholas, did, which would rule out the
    possibility that the Elias who married Anne BARBANK and was fathering
    children in the 1720's was the son of Nicholas II [The Stillwell
    Genealogy, by John E. Stillwell, MD];

    The will of John BAYLES, 1682, leaves 7 pounds to ELYAS STILWELL,
    sonne of Nicholas Stilwell and my daughter Rebecca, his wife,
    deceased. A study of all the sources listed on p. 4 reveals no other
    Nicholas who could have been married to Rebecca and fathered a son
    before 1682.

    The BAYLES family lived in Jamaica, NY, and Nicholas II is known to
    have lived, or at least owned property there. John E. Stillwell
    attributes the following entry to Nicholas II: 1676, June 14. John
    BAYLES, Jr of Jamaica, sold to Jonathan Stevenson, of the same place,
    his home-lot, orchard, etc., "that I bought of Nicholas Stillwell,
    now of Gravesend." [Jamaica records, cited in The Stillwell
    Genealogy, by John E. Stillwell, MD];

    The names Rebecca and Elias, names that continued in this branch of
    the family for many generations, may have originated in the BAYLES
    family. There were no STILLWELLS with either name to my [Mary
    Jackson? 1987] knowledge among the church records in England.
    Nicholas the emigrant had no known daughter named Rebecca, although
    some sources do suggest that he had a son named Elias, while others
    omit him. Although women named Rebecca married into the Stillwell
    family in the third and fourth generations, the BAYLES family could
    have been the only source for the name ELIAS. (The one exception to
    this is the Elias who married Anne BARBANK, the identity of and
    origin of whose name is unknown to me.)

    The name ELIAS was prevalent in the BAYLES family. Rebecca BAYLES
    had a brother with that name. In addition, there was an Elias
    BAYLIES in Setauket, where Rebecca's father lived from 1668-1674,
    after moving there from Jamaica. (After 1674, he returned to
    Jamaica.) A study of all the references listed at the end of this
    work shows that most of the STILLWELLS of this name [ELIAS] were
    born after 1700 and were probably of the fourth or fifth and later

    generations in America. Following is a description of the six
    earliest births given in these references:

    (1) Elias, son of Nicholas the emigrant, born 1657; married Sarah
    BRASIER in 1676 and had only one child, a daughter (listed in
    sources II, III, VI, and omitted in I, VII, and V).

    (2) Elias, born about 1663, died about 1713-1714, in NJ (listed in
    sources I and VII as being the son of Nicholas II and Rebecca
    BAYLES).

    (3) Elias, [born Dec. 13, 1685? The Stillwell Genealogy suggests
    that he was born about 1700], married Anne BARBANK, lived on
    Staten Island, had three sons, THOMAS, DANIEL, and JOHN, whose
    births are recorded in the Dutch Church records. These records
    can be found in source IV (listed in sources II, III, and V as
    the son of Nicholas II and Catharine, while source I and VII
    dispute it. Source I lists him separately, parents unknown.

    (4) Elias, Jr (subject of this article), born 1708, in NJ, died
    1792 in Fulton County [Note: Before 1850 this was part of
    Bedford County], PA who married Meriam EDDY (listed in source
    I).

    (5) Elias, son of Nicholas of Shrewsbury, NJ. According to sources
    II, III, and V, this Nicholas was the son of the emigrant's
    son, Daniel, but source I [The Stillwell Genealogy by John E.
    Stillwell] says he was the brother of Elias Jr. Some present
    day researchers believe he was the father of Rebecca STILLWELL
    who married Thomas HEADY in 1749 in Egg Harbor, NJ, who later
    lived in Fayette County, PA, and KY. There seems to have been
    a connection between the family of Rebecca HEADY and Elias Jr.

    (6) Elias, son of Richard, son of the emigrant's son, Daniel, died
    single."

    Was deceased when his father Nicholas wrote his will on 19 Jan 1715. He owned a mill at Gravesend, NY in 1696. Moved to Middletown, NJ with his uncle Jeremiah about 1699, in which year he registered his cattle mark there. He re-registered it in 1703. Listed as deceased in his father's will, which was dated 19 Jan 1715. An inventory of his estate was made the same year.

    The property of Elias was inventoried on 30 Nov 1715 by Thomas Morford and Lewis Morris. He died intestate; appointed administrator of his estate was Richard Stanley of Monmouth Co., but he died before the estate was settled. Concerning his children, JES (v3p12) says: "There is no record in existence that I know of, giving the children of Elias Stillwell. They are grouped here simply from the data given under their respective names. They were of tender years when he died and were doubtless looked after by their uncle Capt. Jeremiah Stillwell."

    AFN=HXM9-G2 and 2WK7-7T. AF lists 5 wives: (1) Mrs. Elias Stillwell (JZ36-LR), 6 children, including Nicholas b. 1699 (JZ36-MX); (2) Elizabeth Cornell (JZ36-XH), with children Richard and Jeremiah; (3) Catherine Huybert (JZ36-WB), no children; (4) Wife (Unknown) Stillwell (1259-472), with 6 children including Elias (BL21-6X), b. 1699 who married Meriam Eddy (BL21-74); and (5) Unknown, with 2 children, Richard Stillwell b. 1737 in New York and Jeremiah Stillwell b. 1739 in New Jersey.

    Cindy lists Rebecca Abagail Stillwell, b. about 1710 in Monmouth Co., NJ, a child of this marriage, stating that she married LaRue Jacob Truax about 1730 in Monmouth Co., NJ. She lists them as her 7th great grandparents. Neither JES nor the Ancestral File (AF) show her as a daughter.

    GenServ member Dale Larson (LARR7EA) of Rockport, TX traces a line from a daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley named Rebecca (Abigail) Stillwell and her husband La Rue Truax for 8 generations.

    Dewitt Stilwell discusses some details of his life on pages 44-45. Concerning his wife and children, he writes this:
    "He left children, which is shown by his father's will, but their names and the name of his wife are not known. He had the ear-mark for his cattle recorded at Middletown, N. J., July 24, 1699.

It was possibly a son of his by the name of Elias who married Ann Barbank and had children:

    "2. Daniel Stilwell, baptized March 24, 1727
    "3. John Stilwell, baptized May 17, 1730" (1914, pages 45-46).

    Dian K. Loos-Conley, WFT Vol. 3 #1164, gives the wife of Elias as Ann Burbank, and traces a long line from Rebecca Abigail and LaRue Jacob Truax down to the Conley name, including herself and her daughter.

    Mark Kline, WFT V5 #3300, states that Rebecca Abigail, who married LaRue Jacob Truax, was the daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley. He follows this line nine more generations, in great detail.

    Gary Patriquin, WFT V13 #2505, states tht Rebecca Abigail, who married La Rue Jacob Truax, was the daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley. He follows this line for five more generations.

    Donna M. John, WFT V13 #3483, states that Rebecca (Abigail), who married La Rue Jacob Truax, was the daughter of Elias and Unknown Stanley. She follows this line for nine more generations.

    After much evaluation of sources, I have included Rebecca Abigail as a daughter of Elias Stillwell and Unknown Stanley. Whether or not this is correct, it includes her and her Truax descendants in the main body of this database.

    His mother was Rebecca, the first wife of Nicholas Stillwell 2nd.
    He was given a generous legacy from his grandfather John Bayles of Jamaica, Long Island, NY, in 1682. He lived in Gravesend, and owned a tide-water mill there. He held property in the Neck in Gravesend. Along with his uncle, Jeremiah Stillwell, he moved to Middletown, NJ in 1698/9. An inventory of his estate was taken in 1715, and his father's will (Nicholas) mentioned him as deceased on Jan. 19, 1715. He died intestate and Richard Stanley of Monmouth Co. was administrator of his estate. "There is no record in existence that I know of, giving the children of Elias Stillwell. They are grouped here simply from data given under their respective names. They were of tender years when he died and were doubtless looked after by their uncle Capt. Jeremiah Stillwell." (Source: JESv3,pp.11-12).His mother was Rebecca, the first wife of Nicholas Stillwell 2nd.
