203 Accounts of the death date of Abraham A. Tuers vary, with summaries of the court case involving his estate placing “death” either in 1850 or 1854. In either event, he was deemed dead, and without a will, and the estate was divided by the court in 1862, with a value of about $150,000. It was an important enough case that it was subject of an article in the New York Times. Several accounts of the case are available, and we hold two accounts in file.

Abraham A. Tuers Cases in Chancery
Hoyt v Tuers

WILLIAM W. HOYT and wife v. WILLIAM TUERS et al.

Abraham Tuers died intestate in 1850, seized of lands in Hudson county, and leaving six children and two grandchildren, his heirs-at-law. One of the sons, Abraham A. Tuers, Jr, left New Jersey in 1854, leaving his wife and children here, and never returned. For twenty years his family neither saw him nor heard from him, but heard that he was dead. In 1874 they ascertained that he was living in California, and one of his sons, William, saw him there. He died in 1877. In 1862, under proceedings in the orphans court of Hudson county, the lands of Abraham Tuers were partitioned, the heirs-at-law of Hoyt v. Tuers. Abraham A. Tuers being made parties thereto. On an allegation of his death intestate, and by sundry means conveyances thereunder, the defendants claim parts of the premises. In 1871, Abraham A. Tuers executed a conveyance in California in favor of Hoyt, the complainant, of all his property, real and personal, in New Jersey; and in July, 1874, another, conveying, inter alia, all interest etc. as one of the children and heirs-at-law of his father and mother, or either of them; and in August, 1874, another, conveying, by specific metes and bounds, the lands set off to Abraham A. Tuers's heirs-at-law in the partition of 1862. On a bill for a partition, filed by Hoyt, in chancery, against the defendants as part owners of the premises, and also to set aside the partition of 1862, the defendants, by answer, set up that Abraham A. Tuers (Jr.) was, when he made the alleged conveyances to Hoyt, incompetent to make them, by reason of unsoundness of mind, and that they were obtained by fraud. — Held, that the complainant's title being denied, the suit would be stayed, to afford the complainant an opportunity to establish the title at law, and that although evidence was adduced in this cause on the subject of the defence to the deeds, the defendants were nevertheless entitled to try the question of the validity of complainant's title at law.

THE CHANCELLOR. 
The complainants seek to set aside a partition of land in Hudson County, made in the orphans court of that county in 1862, and to partition the property in this court. The wife joins her husband as complainant only in view of her claim of inchoate right of dower in the property to which her husband claims title. The land was owned by Abraham Tuers, who died in 1850 intestate. At his death his heirs-at-law were his 
six children and two grandchildren, the children of a deceased daughter. In 1862, application was made to the orphans court by his son William for partition of the property. From the order appointing the commissioners, it would seem that, in his petition (it is lost, and no copy of it is produced), the petitioner stated that his brother Abraham (generally known as Abramam A. Tuers) was dead, and had died intestate, and that among his heirs-at-law were two minors, Andrew and Eliza Tuers, two of his children. The property was found, capable of being partitioned without great prejudice to the interests of the owners, and was divided accordingly, and the partition confirmed. The persons to whom two of the shares were assigned in the partition, conveyed them to the Newark Land Company, and that company claims them, and also part of another of the shares conveyed to it in like manner. Abraham A. Tuers in 1854 left this state, leaving his wife and children here, and never returned to it. He went to California, and remained there up to the time of his death, which occurred in 1877. His son William having heard that he was in California, went there in 1874 and saw him there. William testifies that he neither saw nor heard from his father for twenty-two years after the latter left this state, and that the family had heard that he was dead. In March, 1871, Abraham A. Tuers executed a conveyance in California, in favor of Hoyt, for all his right, title and interest of, in and to all his property, real and personal, in New Jersey, and especially all his claims to the estate of his father and mother, or the estate of either of them. On the 1st of July, 1874, he executed a deed to Hoyt, by which, in consideration of $1,000, as expressed in the deed, he conveyed a tract of land of one hundred and ten acres, or thereabouts, in this state, described in the deed as being situated in Morris county, about six miles from Morristown, and about three miles from Rockaway, and the same land occupied and possessed by the grantor in person, and by his family, and at that time occupied by William Tuers, his son. The deed conveyed, also, all other pieces, parcels, tracts, lots or bodies of land or real estate in New Jersey which he owned, or of, in or to which he had any kind, nature or character of right, title, claim or interest, legal or equitable, whether the same had been acquired by purchase, bequest, devise, descent or otherwise, and also all the interest, right, title, claim and demand which he then had or might thereafter have or be entitled to as one of the children and heirs-at-Iaw of his father and mother


 In August, 1874, he executed another deed to Hoyt, which, after reciting that he had executed and delivered the deed, of July preceding, and that it contained no specific or accurate description of any real estate, but did contain general and comprehensive reference to the grantor's real estate in this state, and that he intended thereby to convey to Hoyt the land thereinafter more specifically described and bounded, conveyed to 
Hoyt, for a nominal consideration, the land set off in the partition as the share of his, the grantor's, heirs-at-law, and nothing more. William M.Tuers testifies that, when he went to California, he reached Sacramento City June 29th, 1874, and left there for home on the 4th of July following. He says that he told Hoyt and Hoyt's lawyer and his father, while he was there, that the partition had taken place. Hoyt alleges that the description of the share was inserted by mistake — that it was supposed to be the description of the whole of the land in Hudson county of which Abraham Tuers, his grantor's father, died seized. The answering defendants object to the bill as being multifarious, inasmuch as it seeks, as they insist, to rectify the alleged mistake in the last-mentioned deed, and also to set aside the partition in the orphans court, and obtain a new one. It is enough to say, on this point, that were the objection well founded, it would, in this case, come too late, since it was made for the first time at the final hearing. It is not well founded, however. The bill does not pray a reformation of the deed. But, without considering any of the other objections made by the answering defendants to a decree for partition, it is sufficient at this stage of the proceedings to say that the complainant's title, which is a legal one, is disputed; and it is an established rule of this court that where the title of the complainant in a partition suit is disputed (unless it is an equitable one), this court will not settle it on the hearing, but will compel the complainant to establish it at law first, and the bill will be retained until he shall have so established it. The land company, by its answer, expressly denies the validity of the deeds to Hoyt, and avers that the grantor therein was, when they were executed.

222 Allthough we believe that Aaron Vanderbilt owned a well known farm in Bergen since stories are told of him chasing kids from his apple orchard, he is no doubt descended from Jan Aertsen Van der Bilt, who settled in New York. Possibly he is the great-grandson of Aris Janse Vanderbilt, born in New Amsterdam, died 1715 in Bergen. He eventually moved to Morris County. A deed was given the 19th of May 1809 by Benjamin Stockton, William Stockton and wife to Aaron Vanderbilt for a farm described at a place called Pigeon Hill in the township of Hanover, in the County of Morris, NJ.

In the 1860 Census, we find his daughter, Sarah Prior Vanderbilt remarried to John C. Miller, living in Morris with Eliza and Andrew Tuers, her youngest children. Her daughter, Sarah, age 20, is living close by with husband Alfred Knight, age 25. We haven’t explored all of the family history for this area, but Andrew Jackson Tuers, grandson of Aaron, figures in the history of Morris County as the area is developed.

We have not found proven records as of 2010 for Aert Van der Bilt, however the probable descendancy is below:

Grandson, Harold H. age 4, is living with him, wife Emmaline, and daughter Maud at home in Colorado in 1910 census.

In 1910 his occupation is Resteraunt. A search of Longmont, CO history indicates Bonner’s Cafe was a well-known landmark in the early 1900’s.

Longmont was ravaged by influenza in 1918, and is very likely the cause of Alvin Bonner’s death since we do not find him in the 1920 Census.

She also crocheted beautifully, making doilies, table cloths, afghans, etc. There was always music in the house. The family had a piano that Beatrice played for the family, and everyone always joined in singing or whistling. The home was a social gathering place for all of the family and friends. TUERS, Irene (I587)

233 Anna Claes was a member of the Reformed Dutch Church in New Amsterdam, before 1660, and was one of the charter members of the Reformed Dutch Church of Bergen in 1664.
To date we have found no record of her birth or baptism, and can only guess at her family origins. The name “Claes” suggest a possibly Belgian ancestry, with the name still found there today. Her burial record was on 9 October 1682 in Bergen, Bergen County, New Jersey, seventeenth with pall, according to burial records of the Reformed Dutch Church of Bergen (now Jersey City).

The cemetery is located on land donated to the church by Arent Laurensen, but many graves have been dislocated over the years by encroaching urban development.

240 As a working actor, Johnny moved almost every year. He worked as a comedian at Theater Comiqe, with Buckley’s Variety, and as a minstral at Bella Union Melodian. The Bella Union was one of many on the Barbary Coast that were also called melodeans and sometimes concert saloons, but were in reality low variety and music halls. Among them in addition to the Bella Union, were the Olympic, the Pacific, Bert’s New Idea Melodeon, the Adelphi, and Gilbert’s Melodeon. They catered to stag audiences only, and occasionally offered very ambitious programs, but their performances, while coarse and vulgar and presented with what the Gilbert’s advertisements called “freedom from constrained etiquette,” were not particularly obscene. In these places there was no dancing. They charged admission, ranging from a bit, or twelve and one-half cents, to fifty cents, and their revenue was derived solely from this source and from the sale of liquor. They employed no pretty waiter girls, and discouraged drugging and robbery upon their premises. As elsewhere on the Coast, however, the female performers were required to sell drinks between their appearances on the stage, and in the curtained boxes which were a feature of each house they were permitted to do whatever in their judgment might persuade a reluctant customer to buy. In this setting John had his ups and downs, as most working actors do in their career. His most notorius moment may have come on 31 Jan 1873 when the newspapers of the day, among them the Stockton Daily Independent, reported ...James Dowling, for many years connected with the theatrical profession in California, mortally shot by Johnny Tuers, who was engaged in a scuffle with George Howard. Family members report that John Fletcher was working as a bouncer at the time.

According to the San Jose, Santa Clara 1870 Census, John owned real estate valued at $3500

241 As of October 2015, with the help of Dutch researchers, we have been able to obtain reasonable proof of the family’s Amsterdam origins. Because of the use of the patronymic, we have two possible christening dates for Arent - 1618 or 1614. We have not been able to verify which record is correct for our ancestor, so we have posted the birth date as before 1618. In our research, we have also found record of a daughter being christened at Nieuw Kerk (Amsterdam), but there is no further mention of a daughter in any New World record of the family. Lijnstje was christened 10 Sep 1641. Because there is not further record, we have assumed that she died prior to 1655 and noted her status as Died as a Child.

We know that it was prior to 1655 Arent, his wife, and three sons, emigrated to New Amsterdam because on 15 October 1655, he volunteered to pay 6 florins in labor for the defense of New Amsterdam. On 13 April 1657, "Arent Lourissen Carpenter" was confirmed in his rights as a Small Burgher. (Small Burgher Right pertained specifically to the right to keep a shop or to trade in New Amsterdam. A fee had to be paid to maintain the right, and the right was only granted to those who lived in New Amsterdam for at least one year and six weeks. It was a device for limiting itinerant merchants and provided a source for tax and guards for the colony.)

Roelof Jansen, a mason, died at the house of Arent Laurensen on 16 November 1657, and on the 28th he petitioned the Burgomasters and Schepens to authorize one or two persons to sell the property of Jansen at public auction "that thus might be paid the expenses of his funeral, his house rent and other known and unknown debts." Sieur Mattheus de Vos, Notary Public, and Arent Laurensen were appointed. On 12 Dec. Anna Claes appeared before the Orphanmasters and by two affidavits proved that Roelof Jansen "had given her in his liftime everyday clothing, his gun, powder-horn and what belonged to it; she also produces an account for house rent, for care taking and money advanced, amounting to 99fl. 18 st., wherein are included 7 beavers, the balance being in wampum. Anna Claes was one of the "old Memebrs" of the Reformed Dutch Church in New Amsterdam, before 1660, and was one of the charter members of the Reformed Dutch Church of Bergen in 1664. Arent Laurensen was compelled to pay some money owing to the Orphanmasters in 1660.

His name appears as Arent Lourensse in translation on the list of 342 properties that appear on the 1660 map of Nieuw Amsterdam. The family residence was in Block K on Smee Straet or Smith. Smith Street is now William Street between Hanover Square and Maiden Lane. It was called Smee Straet, referring to a forge or smithy, on the de Sille list and Smit Straet on the Selyns list. When Smith Street was extended in the early 18th Century, the new part was named William Street. A further extension was called King George Street. In 1794 Smith, William and King George Streets were combined under the name William Street, and Note to the Castello Plan indicate it was 39 William Street.

Notes to the Castello Plan further describe the line of property ownership:
Block K NO. 6 Arent Lourens, "residing at the village of Bergen," owned this property.-Liber HH
(2): 1I2 (Albany); Liber Deeds, B: 62; cf. Mortgages, 1664-1675, trans. by O'Callaghan, 3 I.
He did not receive his ground-brief until May, 1662. The tax-list of 1665 gives Jan Woutersen
(Van der Bos) as the owner of the property, the deed to him being found in Liber Deeds,
B: 95; cf· Book of Records of Deeds Cj Transfers (etc.), 1665-1672 (translated), 39. Arent
Lawrence took the oath of allegiance at Bergen, November 22, 1665.-N. J. Archives, 1st
series, I: 49. Present No. 39 William Street.

Probably about 1661 he removed to Bergen, where in 1662 he signed the petition of the Magistrates of Bergen asking to be provided with a clergyman. He pledged 10 florins for the support of the clergyman. On 4 July 1663, he volunteered for the protection of Bergen, and on 21 Feb. 1664, he signed a petition for the erection of a blockhouse at Bergen. On 29 May 1664, he petitioned "that a piece of low land, close to his plantation, may be given and granted to him; he exhibits besides an extract from the minutes of the village of Bergen, whereby it appears, that the Court there has promised it to him subject to approval. The petition was granted. He also had property in New Amsterdam, for on 31 January 1664, "Arent Lauwrenzen of the Village of Bergen declared, that by virtue of a patent on 10 May 1662, he cedes, conveys, and grants to Adam Onckelbagh, Burgher and inhabitant of this city, a house and lot in the west side of Smee Street." In November 1665, "Arent Lawrence," together with his sons, Claes and Laurens, signed the Oath of Allegiance to the English. On 10 Oct. 1670 six various pieces of property in and around Bergen were confirmed to Arent Laurensen. He joined the Reformed Dutch Church of Bergen 27 September 1672.

247 “Thomas H. Newbury, born in New London, Conn., Dec. 20, 1838, died June 30, 1904. He was one of the leading hardware merchants of Mystic, and a man who enjoyed in the highest degree the confidence of the business world. His early days were spent at Groton and Stonington. He first worked in a foundry, and at the age of twelve years, became a helper to a tinsmith in Mystic, and learned the plumbing trade. This he followed for about twenty years. In 1870 he engaged in plumbing and tinsmithing, with John H. Hoxie, and three years later Mr. Hoxie retired, and Mr. Newbury took his brother Charles as a partner. For over twenty years, the business now conducted by Edward H. Newbury, has been at the present location. A full line of hardware, stoves and tinware is carried and a very flourishing trade is enjoyed.” NEWBURY, Thomas H. (I5172)
