About Henry Pawling

Henry Pawling is said to have emigrated from Padbury, Buckinghamshire, England according to land grants in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania researched by Mrs. Katherine Wallace Kitts of Darby, Pa.

Records show that Henry Pawling served in Col. Richard Nicholls "Duke of York Expedition" in 1664 [PA Archives, Series 2, Vol. I, pg. 494}. He was appointed by Capt. Diedley Lovelace to lay out lots at Esopus Creek, 9 Nov. 1668, to induce soldiers to remain [in service]. By 22 April 1670, Lovelace had promoted Henry Pawling to Captain of the Foot Company in the towns of Marbletown, Hurley and Wiltyck and stated in his letter "You are to take into ye charge and care the s'd cap'a as capt'a thereof and duly to exercise both yer inferior officers and souldy'ers in armes, and to use y'er best care skill and endeavor to keepe them in good orders and discipline, hereby requiring all inferior officers and sould'ers under yer charge to - likewise observe and follow such orders and directions as you shall from time to time recieve from me and other your superior oficers according to the discipline of warre[nt].

Henry Pawling took land and settled at Marbletown, Ulster County, New York, where he raised his family and died there. He was appointed High Sheriff of Ulster County in 1684. As such, he was a member of the Governor's Council, and levied and collected all taxes for the county. In one year his salary was £125. A patent to Henry Pawling for land in Ulster County, New York was made on 28 October 1686, and he made a purchase of about 7,000 acres of land in nearby Dutchess County, New York, known as the Pawling purchase around the same time period. [Pawling Genealogy, pg. 13].

Henry Pawling married Neeltje Roosa, daughter of Albert Heymans Roose and Wintie Ariens on 3 November 1676 in Ulster County, New York. The records of this family are found in the old Dutch Church, Kingston, New York, and are now published and translated by Mr. Hoe. Henry Pawling died between 1691 and 1695. The dates are the making and probating of his will, which is recorded in the surrogates office (Register of Wills) at New York city in Liber 5, p. 105. [Pawling Genealogy, pg. 13].
