Donna Sommerfield's lineage for Coonrad Frederick

WHY I AM INTERESTED IN THIS FAMILY:
Mark Davenport, Andrew Way, Dennis McAuley and Peter Bolton have brought to my attention this early Frederick family. Peter Bolton writes' "I'm of the belief - but I can't recall the source - that Conrad was one of 5 brothers, the others being Lodowick [Lewis] and Barnet (both with the King's Royal Regiment of New York) and John and Peter (of the King's Orange Regiment), who all came to Canada as UEL's, although Peter's Will, in which he appoints '...my trusty friends John Roblin, Coonrad Frederick...' would tend to shatter the belief."  Much good work has been done. This is a project to present the primary sources for all to see and consider. 

There is also an extensive lineage for Coonrad Frederick by Donna Sommerfield that needs verification - see above link.




Key Questions

The key questions seem to be: Are the Frederick men brothers? Were they all UE Loyalists? Did they come from New Jersey? Were they Palatine germans? Did they come to Upper Canada via New Brunswick? Who did they marry and who are their children.
Petitions and other records will be presented below grouped under each potential brothers name with their children after that.



Speculated Frederick Family

This lineage is compiled from the petitions on this page and partially from the chart of Donna Sommerfied.  

It appears that Donna's chart is in error. She shows John C Frederick as a son of Coonrad. The record suggests that her John C Frederick is the John Frederick of Thurlow who claimed to be a UE Loyalist but was expunged from the UE list and disclaimed as such by Coonrad.

Coonrad Frederick
Coonrad Frederick (d. March 1844 in Adolphustown) married Elizabeth Rush, daughter of Martin Rush. He was a Seargant in the Jersey Volunteers in 1777 or alternatively in 1778 being employed on the Recruiting Service for Colonel Buskirks Regiment, was imprisoned and had war loses and that he came to Upper Canada in 1788 with 4 children and 5 more were born in UC. He was granted land. From Peter Bolton's notes  it appears Coonrad first settled in New Brunswick. In an 1806 petition of Coonrad's daughter, he is said to be in Ameliasburgh and in 1808 a Hallowell record has him there but an 1816 petition of his son says he is in Thurlow. In 1812 Coonrad signs a statement declaring that John Frederick of Thurlow is not a Loyalist. Also from Peter Bolton's research notes it appears that the Frederick's may have been part of the 1710 Palatine settlement in the Hudson Valley, NY as recorded in the Hunter Lists (see bottom of this page).  Petitions below in the "children's section" confirm that he has children: Martin of Thurlow, Charity (Frederick) Gilbert of Sidney, Elizabeth (Frederick) Taylor of Ameliasburgh and John Frederick of Thurlow

NEW JERSEY VOLUNTEERS AND BUSKIRK
The control of the British forces was centralized in different areas. For Example; the Northern Dept. was headquartered in Quebec city, and by War's end the regiments in that jusisdiction were in order of seniority: 84th (Royal Highland Emigrants), King's Royal Regiment of New York (KRRNY), Butler's Rangers, Loyal Rangers, King's Rangers. All Loyalist regiments.
Many more regiments were in the Central Dept. which headquartered in New York City, so there is absolutely no problem with someone like Coonrad Frederick joining the New Jersey Volunteers (NJV) or any number of regiments in that area. As for "Buskirk" that name occurs in both the NJV and the King's Orange Rangers (KOR) who like the NJV had many Orange Co NY and Bergen Co NJ names. Seems to me there was a Peter Frederick in the KOR who settled in Bay of Quinte. Regarding New Brunswick; Central Dept. regiments were disbanded in the Maritimes, so those who ended up in "Ontario" did so on their own, and in their own time: e.g. Wanamaker, Redner, Babcock, Johnson, Stoneburgh, Cole, Post, Frederick, Ketcheson etc).

REVOLUTIONARY WAR RECORDS
Conrad's actual involvement in the Revolution has yet to be proven, as 'joining the Royal Armie' is too vague to mean anything, although it was often used.  He could have gone to where the army was and tagged along.  He hasn't appeared on any muster rolls, but the rolls for this battalion start in November of 1777, somewhat later than those that exist for other regiments stationed in the New York district. The unit had been raised
exactly a year before, and there is little doubt a number of officers and men passed into and out of it before these rolls start.
As happened with other Loyalists, he could have been on and off without our knowing it.  An indication that he was being truthful about his military service is found in an 1812 UCLP entry [C-1895:F10/45] in which he certifies that 'John Frederick of the Township of Thurlow did not join the Royal Standard during the Revolutionary War in America.'  It would seem reasonable that Conrad wouldn't rat on his presumed brother if John could claim the same about him!  John is buried in Elwood Cemetery, just north of Corbyville.  The stone reads: In memory of John Frederick who died July 11, 1839 aged 74 years, 5m & 18d's.  As well, there is a stone for his wife, Mary, who died July 6, 1845 aged 77 years, 4m & 11d.

John Frederick Senior of Thurlow
John Frederick Senior petitions as a UE in 1797 and is denied as he already has "all the land he is entitled to". He settled on Lot 8, Con 4, Thurlow after selling his granted lot (see below).  In 1812 Coonrad declares that John is not a UE and in April 1812 he is "expunged" from the Loyalist list. His children apply for land in 1816 as children of a Loyalist but are denied. It is possible John and Coonrad are brothers but no document has yet been found stating this relationship.

Peter Frederick of Fredericksburgh

Peter Frederick UE is not mentioned as a possible brother of Coonrad but he is worth investigation. He was with the KOR which is a regiment near where Coonrad enlisted.  He arrives with a wife, Mary, and two children and settles in Fredericksburgh. There is a petition of his son John Frederick Junior of Fredericksburgh who married Elizabeth Peterson, dau of Paul Peterson UE. In this petition it states that John Jr is the son of Peter and nephew of John Fredericksburgh and it mentions there is a John in Thurlow. This is an administrative clarification strongly implying that John of Thurlow is not closely related to a John Senior of Fredericksburgh who is brother of Peter of Fredericksburgh . Peter Senior also has a son Peter and Oliver as mentioned in his will.

DANIEL
1. There is no entry for Daniel's marriage up to 1846 in the Prince Edward County Marriage Register at the Ontario Archives (MS248-4)..
2. I have been unable to locate him in the 1871 or 1881 census.
3. Daniel and his wife (name?) are buried in Burr's Old Loyalist cemetery in Hillier Township, Ontario.
4. I know that he was the son of Martin Jr. whose first wife's name I have been unable to discover, but suspect it might be Jane (see below). Martin's second wife was Hannah Quackenbush, by whom he had: Isaac, Barnet Marvin, Peter Marvin, Marshall Manley, Irvine Manley & John Albert.
5. My notes on his first wife: Nothing has been found to date regarding Martin Jr.'s first wife, by whom he had three children.  There is a J. Frederick (1830) buried next to Martin Sr. in Burr's Cemetery...Martin Jr.'s first wife?  Or his mother?  I speculated, as one of Martin's children by his second marriage to Hannah Quackenbush was named Barnet Marvin Frederick (& Peter's middle name was Marvin), that Martin's first wife might have been a Marvin (Barnet & his wife were next-door neighbours to Martin Frederick in Ameliasburgh). However, in a 1996 e-mail from Phil Ainsworth "Dr. Burr states, "Barnet Marvin was born in Vermont in 1790.  He came to Prince Edward County when a young man and married Elizabeth Foster.  Their six children were Joseph, Foster, Stephen, Agnes, Ruamy and Catherine." No sign of a Jane Marvin...

More Notes on Coonrad from Peter Bolton

...from '7th Town/Ameliasburgh Township' (p. 667):
'Conrad Frederick, UE married Elizabeth Rush, daughter of Martin Rush, UE...'
The Archives has a land petition for 'Elizabeth (Rush) Frederick.'

...from 'The Central Canadians 1600-1900' (p. 983):
'Frederick, Conrod (UEL), living in 1777.'

...from K. Stryker's 1986 'Revolutionary Census: An Index Based on Rateables of the Inhabitants of New Jersey During the Period of the American Revolution':
'On List II for 1778-1780, for Pequannock, Morris County, Conrad, Frederick, Martin, Henry and two Peter Fredericks are found.  (On List I for 1773/1774, there are no Frederick families.)

...from the 1789 "Old United Empire Loyalists List - Appendix B" (p. 178):
Frederick, Conrod.  M District.  Joined the army at New York in 1777; was taken prisoner when recruiting for Colonel Buskirk's corps.  A sergt. Jersey Vols. -- 200  acres.  Came in 1788.  Has a son, Martin.

...in Esther Wright's 'Loyalists of New Brunswick' (p. 284) is the sparse information:
FREDERICK, Conrod,  1st grant in Frederickton. (also a Peter). While no dates are given, family tradition is that Conrad was one of those who left NYC in 1783, although I been unable to find any evidence of this in the index of the Carleton Papers.

...from email adrress omitted
Conrad 1750-1835 x Elizabeth Rush 1755, daughter of Martin Rush, lived Lot 81, Con. 1, Ameliasaburgh (although she doesn't specify a date, the Martin Rush property).

...from Mika's 'UEL Pioneers of Upper Canada':
'...in 1789, Thurlow received a group of 50 Loyalists from Prince Edward County.  Among these arrivals who settled some distance back from the area of Foxboro were John and Conrad Frederick.'

...from 'Historic Hastings':
'Although a few land grants were made in 1788, no new settlers seemed to have arrived until 1789.  Then perhaps fifty persons, many of them from Prince Edward County, moved up the Moira River to form a compact settlement near Foxboro.  These arrivals included John Taylor, William Reed (and four grown sons), Solomon Hazelton, Archibald McKenzie, Zedric Thrasher, Richard Smith, John and Conrad Frederick, and Stephen and Laurence Badgley.  Their coming coincided with the "Hungry Year".  For some time the Reeds were kept alive by a cow, basswood leaves, and other greens.'

...excerpts from Hans Waltimeyer: The Bay Kenty 1789 pg. 272:
'In this year, the fifty settlers who have shifted from Ameliasburg to Thurlow have made use of Meyer's new batteaux service.  Many of that group are poling their way up Singleton's Creek to the upper concessions, taking their belongings with them.  Their destination is about 15 miles above the mouth where an upper settlement is in progress, though the only communication with the lower people is by water.  Exchanges of land are
frequent as persons shift around, relocating themselves in more advantageous places for farming or business.  At this date, the families arriving are: Russell Pitman, Archibald McKenzie, John Michael, John McIntosh, Edward Cook, William Reed and his four sons - Samuel, William, Solomon and John; the Yeomans, Gideon Turner, John Taylor, Richard Smith and sons, John Longwell, Samuel Sherwood, John Frederick, Colquelnon Frederick, William Johnson, Sergeant John Carscallen, John Fairman and others.  Thurlow will be well served by such strengthening in population as this. (Goddard, Jane Bennett U.E. Hans Waltimeyer, Cobourg, Ontario: Haynes Printing C. 1980)

In 1790, he is mentioned as having an account at William Bells' store in now-gone Rhinebeck, situated between present-day Trenton and Belleville.  In the account book, he is referred to as 'Colquhoun (Coon) Frederick.'

In 1791, he purchased a barrel of whiskey, as Coonron, from Samuel Sherwood's store.

He was given a Crown patent for lot 3 and the west half of lot 4, con. 4 in Thurlow Township on 06 Mar 1798.  There was no further entry for the latter in the abstract files.

...from pages 2-3 of the 04 Oct 1798 issue of "The Upper Canada Gazette":
Secretary's Office
York, September 28th, 1798.
List of the Names of Persons who have GRANTS in the Secretary's Office, in addition to those heretofore advertised, ready to be issued.
Names.    Acres.  Townships.
Conrad Fredericks   100  Thurlow
...and further down page 3...
Sam. Duree & Conradt Fredericks 200  Thurlow

On 18 Mar 1803, he was given the Crown patent to Con. 2, Lot 2 in Thurlow Township.  Jane Goddard's 'Hans Waltimeyer' states, "As of March 18th. of this year (1803), Conradt Frederick, another newly-arrived settler to Meyer's Creek, has been allotted Lot 2, Concession 1, that area being now vacant."  It was sold by his grandson, Martin Frederick Jr., on 06 Sep 1853 to William Gilbert.

In 1803, Philip Zwick acquired the Crown patent on Con. 1, Lot 21 in Thurlow Township and sold it to Conrad on 11 Jul 1811.  It was sold by Conrad to George Reddick on 24 Oct 1825.  

There are a number of references to Conrad in the Minutes of the Court of Quarter Sessions of the Peace for the Mecklenburg/Midland District, Counties of Frontenac, Lennox & Addington, Hastings and Prince Edward (MS694 & 730). These were held in January and July in Adolphustown, and April and October in Kingston: 28 Jan 1807: Magdalen Huffman, w/o James Cotter, was barred of her dower of the eats half of lot number 66 in the 1st concession of Ameliasburgh, which was sold to Conrad.
He was on the jury for the following cases:
22 Jan 1811: Hannah Keller vs. Isaac Laraway.
23 Jan 1811: Barney Cain vs. Francis Danac.
29 Jan 1812: William E. Brown vs. Benjamin Gerow for assault (found guilty
and fined 5 shillings).  Martin Rush (Sr. or Jr.?) also on jury.
30 Jan 1812: Daniel Porter vs. James Mosher for assault (found not guilty).
24 Jan 1816: Mary Jayne vs. Isaac Spencer for assault (guilty and fined 40
shillings).
25 Jan 1816: Owen P. Roblin vs. Abraham Caniff for assault (guilty). Jury
duty.
                   Peter Thompson vs. Robert Casey (guilty and fined 60
shillings).

According to Andrew Way (a descendant of Peter/Mary Frederick
It appears he sold land to my GGG Grandfather Benjamin Way 1818 in Thurlow, and it was witnessed by Alexander Chisholm.

Daniel, in his attesting to his father's claim for Charity Gilbert's land, referred to his great-grandfather as Conrad, late of Adolphustown.  Did he move there from Hastings?  Perhaps he's buried in the same cemetery as Peter, across from Hay Bay Church.

To be further researched...
From the Hunter Lists #212:  '...Koenraat Fredrik, his wife, and 2 ch. were recorded on Capt. Lionel Allan's ship in Holland in the 5th party of 1709 (RotterdamLists); on that same vessel were Palatines from the Nassau-Darmstadt region who also eventually settled in colonial N.J.  Conrad Friderich made his initial appearance on the Hunter Lists 01 July 1710 with 4 pers. over 10 yrs. of age in the household. Conrad Frederich aged 52, Anna Maria Frederich aged 45, John Peter Frederich aged 14, and John Conrad Frederich aged 13, remained in N.Y. City in 1710/11 (Palatines In N.Y. City).  Certain provisions were advanced to him as a settler on the Ramapo Tract: a bushel of wheat and 1 skipel of peas 09 April 1713, 6 fathoms of white roap 17 April 1713, 2 bushels of wheat 10 May 1713, and 2 bushels indian corne 26 May 1713 (Ramapo Tract Mss.).  Conrad Freiederich and his wife Anna Maria with 2 ch. were at Hackensack ca. 1716/17 (Simmendinger Register).  A sp. in 1711 gave the maiden name of his wife Anna Maria as Wysing (N.Y. City Ref. Chbk.).  The ch. of Johann Conrad and Anna Maria were:
1) Peter (Palatines In N.Y. City), md. 15 or 19 June 1717 at Campua near
   Remobuch, N.J. to Anna Dorothea DeMuth...Issue:
      ...Anna Maria (bap. 09 June 1718 - IGI batch #7419715, Ramapo,
Bergen, NJ)
      ...Anna Elisabetha (b. 19 June 1720)
(Elisabeth Fredericks married Hendrick Wannemacher.)
      ...Conrad (bap. 17 February 1723), who may have been the Conrad Frederick who married Sarah Hosik 06 Apr 1745 and had a child at Pompton Plains Reformed Church 16 Nov 1746: Annatje
(Any other children...our Conrad, perhaps?)

(The Dutch people had a certain naming practice when naming their children. The first children were named after their grandparents, usually the first son being named after the paternal grandfather, the second after the
maternal grandfather, the first daughter being named after the maternal grandmother and the second after the paternal grandmother. Sometimes the first son was named after the maternal grandfather, but regardless, the
first children were named after their grandparents, thus giving invaluable clues to the given names of the next generation. After this, children were usually named after their aunts and uncles.)
      ...Maria (b. 11 June 1731).
(2) Conrad (Palatines In N.Y. City), who was confirmed at N.Y. 19 July 1710
    (West Bank Lutheran Chbk.)
