General Notes: Husband - Gideon Sands


Gideon was a slave owner. In his will, dated April 8, 1770, he bequeaths his negro boy, Jake, to his son Edward. Brother Benjamin Sands and Richard Sands, the executors of his will, sold his farm on the bottom of the Cow-Neck Turnpike. Unlike his brothers, Gideon was not active in the Revolutionary War. As I have established that his mother in law, Mary (Cornell) Sands, was a Quaker, I am wondering whether Gideon was a Quaker sympathizer.

For more on Gideon, see the entry for Mary's second husband, William Sutton.


General Notes: Wife - Mary Sands


Mary moved to Mamaroneck some time after her marriage, in Hempstead to William Sutton in 1779. She would have had to move because Gideon' s will required the sale of the Sands Point farm stock upon her remarriage . This sale would have provided her funds to buy a farm in Mamaroneck . As discussed under her 2nd husbandís entry, William, had family there. In addition, her brother, Richard, was married to Deborah Griffin , daughter of Benjamin and Mary (Disbrow) Griffin, of Mamaroneck, and resided there. Her son, John, also, was a Mamaroneck resident. Her daughter, Sybil, and her husband, John Davis, also resided there.

Mary's will, dated 1793, recites that she is a Mamaroneck resident and disposes of her land and buildings there. The will is witnessed by Giles Seaman, who was, probably, a next door neighbor. Mary left most of her land to her son, John, who was, also, living in Mamaroneck. When John died in 1807, his executors sold his land. The deed, Liber 30, pg. 263, mentions that the adjoining landholder was Giles Seaman. According to this deed, this farm was 8 acres in size and bordered on two sides by the Westchester Turnpike (now US 1 - W. Boston Post Rd.) and the Old Boston Post Rd. The third border of the farm was the land of Giles Seaman. Seaman is mentioned in "History of Westchester County, New York" by J. Thomas Scharf, Vol. 1 pt. 2 (1886) as a Quaker who owned the site of the John Richbell cemetery and was himself buried there (the land is described as later owned by Thomas L. Rushmore). From this information, the locations of both the Sands and Seaman farms are readily apparent (the Richbell cemetery is now in Harbor Island Park just off Rushmore Ave.). However, there was, possibly, a second Sands property in Mamaroneck, since Mary's son, John, may have been living there before she bought her farm (as described below). As John married Esther Palmer, they may have been living on property located on what is now Sand St. (formerly Sands St.), just off Palmer Ave. The property could have been provided to him by his wife's family. According to the Scharf book mentioned above, the Palmer family were significant land owners in this area and provided the site of the first Quaker meeting house. However, based upon the 1790 census, I think that John and his wife had moved in with Mary by that time.

Mary's will recites that she got her land in Mamaroneck from Bartholemew Haddon (there is no deed in the Westchester Archives). This is, presumably, a reference to Bartholemew Haddon, the younger, son of Job Hadden, who was married to Sarah Guion. She was the daughter of John Guion and Anna Hart (NYGBS Record Jan. 1920 pg. 26-27). Anna's brother was James Hart, the father of Jane, who married Mary's son, Edward. This suggests that Edward met his wife through his mother's Westchester contacts. As Edward married Jane Hart in 1783, this suggests that his mother was already in Mamaroneck by that date.

For more on Mary, see the entry for her second husband, William Sutton

Her mother, Mary left some of her land in Mamaroneck to Sybil.


General Notes: Child - Edward Sands


An Edward Sands was a Surgeon's Mate in the 4th NY from 17th August to December 1775 according to "Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army" by Francis Bernard Heitman. I can't eliminate the possibility that this was another Edward Sands but it seems likely that it was this one, as he would have been 16 in 1775 and many of his relatives were active in the Continental Army at this time (see "History of the Sands Family" in the Cow's Neck Peninsula Historical Society Bulletin, October 1968). See the entry of his grandmother, Mary (Cornell) Sands as to her Quaker religion. Although Quakers do not believe in serving in a combat role in war, they do serve in medical roles. Thus, Edward having served as a Surgeon's mate could be the result of Quaker influence. According to Manhattan directories, he was a ship's carpenter at 37 Roosevelt from 1791 to 1793. This profession, presumably, explains his move from Sands Point to the port of New York . In 1794 he moved to 43 Roosevelt and added grocer to his profession . In 1795 he was just a grocer at the same address. In 1796 he moved to 68 James St. in Manhattan, where he remained until his death. His estate inventory shows that he owned two framed houses (valued at $1500 ) at 68 James St. at the time of his death. Widow, Jane, was still living there in 1809 according to the 1809 Directory. This property, evidently, passed to his son, Elisha, who improved it. At the time of his death in 1860, it is described as a four story brick house and lot on the N.W. corner of James and Oak Streets with frame house on the rear. This property, presumably, included the shop, with the address of 71 James Street where Hart's sons Edward and Charles operated a pharmacy. The house no longer exists and is in an area which is now a large project called the Governor Alfred E. Smith Residential Houses. Elisha passed the property to his wife, who, evidently, disposed of it. Edward was the first member of this branch of the Sands family to move to Manhattan from Sand's Point. He and his sons and grandsons lived and worked on the Lower East Side just north of the South St. Seaport.

The will of Edwards' mother, Mary, recites that she got her land in Mamaroneck from Bartholemew Haddon (there is no deed in the Westchester Archives). I believe this to be the Bartholemew Haddon who was married to Sarah Guion. She was the daughter of John Guion and Anna Hart (NYGBS Record Jan. 1920 pg. 26-27) . Anna's brother was James Hart, the father of Jane, who married Edward. In addition, Bartholemew is the son of Job Haddon, whose wife, Elizibeth Griffin, is the sister of Deborah Griffin, Edward's mother's sister in law. This suggests that Edward met his wife through his mother's Westchester contacts. As Edward married Jane Hart in 1783, this suggests that his mother was already in Mamaroneck by that date. As related in the entry for his mother's second husband, William Sutton, Jane's father, James Hart's farm was on Budd's Neck, right across the Mamaroneck harbor from his mother's farm.

General Notes: Husband - James Sands


In about 1638, James came to Plymouth, Massachusetts, reputedly, from Reading, Berkshire, England . In 1642, he was at East Chester, Westchester County , New York with Anne (Marbury)Hutchinson. According to his account to his grandson, Rev. Samuel Niles, Indians approached him while he was working on the Hutchinson house in the Pelham Bay area as a carpenter and signed that they should leave. He urged Anne Hutchinson to leave but she refused. He left and returned to Rhode Island and regarded this incident as a narrow escape when he heard that she and her family were massacred. (See "Niles' History of the Indian and French Wars", Collection of the Massachusettes Historical Society (1861), pages 192-201). The site of this massacre was likely near the current site of Coop City in the Bronx. See "The Site of Anne Hutchinson's Massacre" by Lemuel A. Welles in the April 1929 edition of the NYGBS Record. He removed to Portsmouth, Rhode Island where he gained grants of land on 5 October 1643 and served the community in various compacities until 1660. At this time, he, in the company of others, purchased Block Island from the Indians. This same group settled on the island a year later. James received a 1/16 share of the island. He again served in public office in this community, at least until the year 1676 . James was a commisioner to the General Court & had been commander of the New Shoreham Company. He turned his house into a fort & garrisoned it. The house became company headquarters during King Philip's War [1675-1676]. There is a stone monument which marks the site of this fort across the street from the New Shoreham Town Hall. James was a planter & physician. His wife was also a physician & nurse. He is buried in a public graveyard with a large sand stone slab recording his age and date of death. According to "The Real Mystery of Block Island the origins of the Island Colony" by Arthur Kinoy, published by the Block Island Historical Society, 1961, Third Printing 1997, Sands was known in Rhode Island to be a believer in freedom of religion and a friend of Roger Williams. For these reasons he was picked to be a leader of those planning to colonize Block Island. These settlers were chafing under the pilgrims' religious restraints and seeking a settlement which could be claimed by Rhode Island and remote enough to avoid pilgrim interference. The society created on the island did, according to this pamplet, practice freedom of relgion and democratic governance.

The precise ancestry of James is not known. He is argued by members of the Sands and Sandys families to be descended from Archbishop Edwin Sandys, based upon family resemblances in their respective descendants . See "Descendants of James Sands of Block Island" compiled by Malcolm Sands Wilson. The active involvement of the Archbishop's children in establishing the colonies, also, supports this argument. It may be that James was sent to the Massachusetts colony because of some sympathy by his parents for the Puritan faith of the colonists. The Archbishop, himself, is said to have joined a group, while exiled to the Continent, which were the forerunners of the Puritans. Indeed, it seems likely that his children were such strong supporters of the colonies, in part, as a haven for freedom of religion. However, since James arrived at Plymouth at a pretty young age, appeared highly educated, and does not seem to have ever disclosed to his family who his parents were, if he was a Sandys, the odds are that he was illegitimate and was sent to the Massachusetts colony to avoid a scandal in England.

Traditionally James has been asserted to be the son of the Archbishop's eighth child by his second marriage, Henry Sandys. This theory is problematic because James is believed to have been from County Berkshire, and Henry settled with his second wife, Priscila Chauncy, in County Northamptonshire, where he became Sheriff. According to Cambridge's records, at the time his son, Chauncy, enrolled at Cambridge, in 1621, Henry was already dead. Since James claimed to be born in 1622, Henry seems wrong as James' father by both by geography and age. Speculation about Henry as the father may have been generated by the letters of Adam and John Winthrop between the MA colony and Suffolk, England. The Winthrops were friendly with a Rev. Henry Sandes of Suffolk, who died there in 1626 at 77 years of age, according to his funerary monument in Boxford. Another Sands descendant has pointed out that there was a Henry Sandes, who attended Cambridge in 1569 , before the Archbishop's son, Henry, was born. Since the Archbishop' s son, apparently, did not live in Suffolk and died several years before the Reverend Henry Sandes, it appears that there were two Henrys, the Archbishop's son, who attended Oxford, and the Reverend, who attended Cambridge. It was the Reverend who married Elizabeth Goffe, according to the Winthrops. They were, also, acquainted with her brother Edward, who, lived in the MA colony. The Goffes' father has often, mistakenly, been identified as Thomas Goffe, Deputy Governor of the MA colony, but a recent study of Edward's parentage has established that his actual father was Edward Goffe, senior, a clothworker of Groton in County Suffolk. see The New England Historical and Genealogical Register Vol. 158, April 2004, pg. 101. The often repeated identifcation of Elizabeth Goffe as the third wife of the Archbishop's son, Henry, and mother of James Sands, seems entirely wrong. I have seen no direct evidence that the Reverend Henry Sandes was James' father and it seems unlikely since James claimed to have been born in in 1622, a short time before the Reverend Henry died as an old man.

Another theory is recorded in letters by Lt. Col. George Owen Sandys from around 1952 which are on file in the Essex Record Office (my reading of the work papers of Malcolm Sands Wilson suggests that theory may, actually, have originated from him). The Archbishop had a son, James, by his first wife, Mary Sandys, who was a distant cousin of the Archbishop. Her family owned an estate in Woodham Ferrers, Essex called Edwardes Manor. When the Archbishop was exiled, James was left with his mother's parents at Edwardes Manor. James ' mother and brother both died while the Archbishop was in exile and James' grandfather, the owner of Edwardes Manor, died in February 1558 , just after the Archbishop's return. The Archbishop entered into a Compact with James' uncle, his deceased wife, Mary's brother, William, to take over Edwardes Manor and leave it to his son, James. The Archbishop remarried that same month. He fixed up Edwardes Manor and changed the name to Edwin's Hall. I have seen a claim that James died of the plague while the Archbishop was still in exile but I have not seen any documentation for this and the Compact is strong evidence against this claim.

The above is documented fact, as is the fact that the Archbishop did not leave Edwin's Hall to James, but, instead, to his eldest son, Samuel, by his second wife. It is also a documented fact that Mary Sandys had relations, who lived in Sonning, Berkshire. Lt. Col. G. O. Sandys claims that James, unhappy with his new stepmother, left Edwin's Hall and went to live with his mother's family in Sonning, Berkshire. He claims James Sands is James Sandys' grandson. If true (I have seen no documentation to support this claim) it could explain why James chose to change his name to Sands, in light of the shabby way the Archbishop treated his grandfather. It could, even, explain his name, "James", named after his grandfather. However, at this point the connection to Mary Sandys' family is highly speculative. The only other possible support for a Sandys connection to James is the very young age at which he arrived in Plymouth. Did a family member accompany him? There was a Henry Sandys of Boston, who died in 1651 whose exact ancestry is, also, murky. He named his oldest child Samuel (also the name of the Archbishop's oldest son by his second wife).

With so many people now taking DNA tests, it seems likely that, at some point, the family relationship between the Sands and Sandys family will either be proven or disproven since both families have a prolific number of descendants. However, at this point, I have not seen the necessary DNA comparrisons.

My UU sermon regarding his part in the early American struggle for religious freedom is attached with accompanying readings.

On Block Island there is a metal plaque commemorating the sixteen original English settlors to Block Island (including James Sands) called Settlers Rock .
