Sources8,21,67 P 122,320 67. 

		As a refugee from Dublin sailed from Chester or nearby Liverpool, Eng, on
the ship "Spotted Calf" in 1687.  Landing frist at Oyster Bay, Long Island,
NY.  As was the custom boys of genteel families and younger sons of noble
families were trained to some trade, he was a blacksmith.  His full
signature appears on all deeds and papers at Oyster Bay, evidence that he
had been taught to write in his youth.
		
		A freeholder in Oyster Bay Town records Jan 2, 1687. Purchase of 100 acres
at Suckscalls" Wigam from John Wright, his first wife's cousin, Jan 16, 1688
for sixty pounds current money of NY.  The land was part of the general
purchase from the Matenacocke Indians made Jan 9, 1685.  Suckscall was an
Indian Chief and his Wigwarm was located at what is now known as Brookville
(Wolver Hollow), Long Island.  Isaiah was the first white man to live on the
site.  Recorded in Book "B" of the Ancient Town Book of Oyster Bay Jan 2,
1687320
		
		Apr 20, 1702 sale of Oyster Bay land recorded , purchase of land at
Smithtown from William Lawrence, 500 acres Suffolk Co, NY .  Jun 12 1721
sold to Amos  Willitts, and purchased 900 acres in Sussex Co, Delaware.
"Maiden Plantation".  Deeded to sons, Daniel, Thomas, & Jeremiah, 250 acres
each.
		
		Sold  May 7, 1736.  With the exception of Elizabeth & Gideon (who had
died), He departed for Virginia with a party of sixteen.  He arr. in what is
now Alexandria, VA, crossed the Blue Ridge at Thornton's Gap and settled
near Lewes, an early colonial port (oldest light house in America).  For two
years they surveyed the area and camped near Linville's Creek  where Isaiah
died in 1738.    The Harrisons explored the region between the North River
and the South Fork into high lands in the present vicinity of Harrisonburg,
VA, in 1738. 
		
		Other early settlers included the Cravens, Smiths, Herrings, and Lincolns.
Paraphased from House of Cravens. 224
		
		Alexander Herring, Senior, and Isaiah Harrison passed away while residing
in Delaware. Both died within the three year period beginning in 1735 and
concluding in 1738. Shortly after their deaths, the migration of their
children to Virginia began.  Some of the Harrisons were settled in the
vicinity of what is now Harrisonburg, Virginia in Rockingham County as early
as 1738.
		
		House of Cravens: 5 brothers from Delaware are John, Daniel, Thomas,
Jeremiah and Samuel the first to locate in Rockingham Co, VA.  Later Isaiah,
Jr, and Mary, the eldest dau md to Robt Cravens, Sr came.  All of Isaiah's
living descendants settled here.  Thomas named the present Harrisonburg town.224
		
		A tradition exsist  in the descendant families to the effect that Pres. Wm
Henry Harrison and his grandson, Pres. Benj Harrison were descendants of
Isaiah Harrison.  No reliable evidence confirming such tradition has been
found.  J. Houston Harrison had heard of the same tradition, and devoted
considerable research in that connection, his findings failed to
substantiate the tradition.  Those Harrison families were descendants of
Harrisons who settled early in Eastern Virginia, and were known as the James
River branch of Harrisons.  It is quite possible, however that there may
have been some distant relationship between them and Rev. Thomas Harrison,
the probable father of Isaiah Harrison.320

		He married Abigail SMITH, 1702 in Smithtown, Long Island, NY320.

	17	Abigail SMITH - 35. Christen in Presbyterian/ Independant Or
Congregational. Residence Smithtown, NY; Sussex, DE; Rockingham, VA.
Sources21,67  224. 

		Both Jonathan and Adam Smith owned land adjoining Isaiah Harrison, and it
may be said that Abigail was the daughter of Adam Smtih, and a sister of
Edmund Smith who married Mary Smith.  However, as Aabigail was much older
than Mary Smith, she is most probably the daughter of Jonathan Smith and
Sarah Brewster.
		
		Through the relationship of the Smiths and Lawrences, Isaiah Harrison
acquired all of his Smithtown land from the Lawrences.  (note Lawrence
Harrison in VA, Draper Manuscripts)
		
		The genealogical accounts of Richard Smith's family, the immigrant, is
fragmentary.  Thompson's History of Long Island is far from complete.
However, the Smiths migrated to Augusta Co. VA about the time that Isaiah
Harrison and his wife Abigail Smith, removed from Long Island.    224

		Sixth Generation
		**************************************************

	32	Thomas HARRISON Rev. - 333. Born 1619 in Kingston-Upon-Hull, Yorkshire,
ENG. Christen 1619 in Angelican, Episcopal. Died 1682 in Dublin, Ireland.
Buried 1682 in Dublin, Ireland. Occupation Minister, Established Church Of
England. Residence Hull,ENG; Jamestown, VA; Ipswich, MA;Chester,ENG;Dublin,
IRE. Sources224,320   67. 

		Rev Thomas H. came to the early Jamestown, VA settlement about 1640 as
minister of Elizabeth River parish (Anglican, Episcopal).  chaplain to
Governor of Berkeley (1645-1652).  
		
		Rev Thomas , a native of Kingston-Upon-Hull, England, he was of Yorkshire
parentage, with residence in London, and was descended from the Durham
family of Harrisons, entitled to bear the Yorkshire (London) Arms.  He came
from the same family as the line of Alderman and Burgess of the city of
Hull, which was granted a charter by Edward I in 1299.  He  was an intimate
of the Cromwell family .  
		
		Following the second Indian massacre, April 18, 1644, he turned Puritan
himself, and in 1648, after refusing to read the Book of Common Prayer, or
Administer the Sacrements, abondoned his ministrial office.  
		
		He removed to New England where he married Dorothy Symonds, daughter of
Samuel Symonds of Ipswich, MA, Deputy Governor of MA, and a native of Great
Zeldham, Essex Co, England.  He became an  Independent or Congregational
minister of the gospel.
		
		From MA in 1650, Thomas returned with his family to England as minister at
St. Dunstans-in-the-East, London.  He then removed to Bromborough Hall,
Warrall, Cheshire, and in 1655, accompanied Henry Cromwell (son of the
Protector) to Ireland.  
		
		Upon the Restoration, Rev. Harrison returned to Chester, where he preached
to large congregations in the Cathedral.  Following the passing of the "Act
of Uniformity" in 1662, he settled permanently in Dublin, and founded there
a flourishing dissenting church.
		
		With the rise of the Catholic element under James II, there was little
hope for any former followers of Cromwell, or his children.  Having been so
closely allied with the Cromwell party, Thomas's fortunes were doubtless
depleted by the time Isaiah came to America.
		
		Rev. Thomas Harrison died in 1682 in Dublin, Ireland - "A midst general
mourning."  "He was a complete gentleman", "Much courted for his
conversation."  He was the author of several works, among them "Old Jacobs
Account Cast Up."  He left a valuable library.  His will recorded in 1682,
and other family records was destroyed in the courts' fire of Public Records
office of Ireland in the late rebellion of 1922,     224
		
		Identified by J. Houston Harrison, Settlers By The Long Grey Trail, as the
ancestor of the Rockingham Co Va Harrisons is circumstantial, but a good
case for his findings, thus this author has accepted the results as
reasonably adequate. 320
		
		J. Houston Harrison conducted a thorough research of the origin of the
Harrison families of England and Scotland, see CVii, pp. 77-78.  The
Harrisons came into England with the Norse Viking Sea Kings 1016-1035.  They
were among the free Danes of whom Kingsley's hero, Hereward the Wake was
one, and the last to withstand William the Conquerer.  
		
		Northumberland is the Danish section of England and filled with Harrisons.
The name being of Danish patronymic origin more properly spelled Arysen
(Aertzsen) and common to this day in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.(Richmond,
Va Standard, No. 41, june 12, 1880)320
		
		In 1650 he returned to England and became minister of St.
Dunstans-in-the-East London.  He came an intimate of Henry Cromwell and
accompanied him in 1655 to Ireland where he settled permanently in Dublin
		
		After the Restoration and assumption of the English throne by Charles II,
He preached to large congregations in the Cathedral at Chester, England, was
the author of several works of note, and left a valuable library.  67
