Tavern in Fishkill and frequently dealt with residents of the Beekman Patent.

On 17 Oct. 1776 the Committee met in Fishkill to consider the state of

insurrection in Dutchess County. Part of the minutes of this meeting follow:

“Whereas divers treasonable conspiracies against this State and the liberties of

America, have lately been discovered in the several parts of the County of

Dutchess, for seducing many of the inhabitants thereof from their allegiance to

this State, and inlisting them in the service of the King of Great Britain: And
whereas this Committee, after diligent inquiry in the progress and cause of the

said conspiracies, have the highest reason to believe that they were formed and

promoted by certain notoriously disaffected persons of influence in the said

County, at the instigation of William Tryon, Esquire, late Governour of the

Colony of New York: ... Therefore Resolved, That it hath become more

particularly necessary and expedient to provide for the internal peace and

security of this State, by removing from it all persons who are notoriously

disaffected and inimical to the measures pursuing for the safety and defence of

the United States of America.”

“Resolved, That the persons hereinafter named be forthwith removed to the

several places affixed to their respective names, there to remain at their own

expence, under such restrictions as shall be enjoined them respectively by the

Legislative authority, or by the Committees of the several States to which they

may be so removed. etc...”

Previous to this resolution William Duer of the Committee had written the

Pennsylvania Council of Safety on 11 Oct. 1776 as follows:

“Gentlemen, I am directed by the Committee, appointed by the Convention of

this State for enquiring into, detecting and defeating all Conspiracies formed in

the State of New York against the Liberties of America, to inform you that they

have sent into your State thirty-three Prisoners, most of whom are charged with

treasonable Practices against the State, and others too Dangerous to be suffered

to remain within the same, in its present critical Situation.

This Committee lament the necessity which obliges them to trouble their

sister State with Persons of this Stamp; but, they trust that the peculiar and

dangerous Situation which the State of New York is in at present will apologize

for a Measure dictated by the most cruel necessity. [etc.].”

We have not found a listing of the names of the men who were sent to

Pennsylvania, but Amos Pine, a Beekman Patent Tory, is reported to have died in

a prison in Pennsylvania. [ConC 413 and Pine notes].

As a result of the resolution of the 17th Oct. many local men were sent to Exeter,

New Hampshire and the surrounding area. The family names of the men from

Beekman and Pawling who were sent constitute about one half the total. The

men were:

45S. Isaac Secor

From Garry Johnson, the Internet:
ID: I04853

Name: Isaac Secor

Sex: M

Birth: 12 SEP 1773 in Ballstons Springs, Rockland Co., New York, U.S.A.

Death: 25 AUG 1853 in Scarborough, York Co., Ontario, Canada

Burial: Secor Burial Plot, Lot 18 Concession D, Scarborough, York Co., Ontario, Canada

Note:

Isaac being the eldest of the family was the main support of his mother on the long journey to Upper Canada in 1788.



Isaac joined his parents in their move to Scarborough in or about 1811.
During Isaac’s road contract he acquired by purchase lands in Lots 19 and 20 in Concession D in Scarborough on which

he and Mary spent their remaining years in peace. Soon after acquiring the property, Isaac built a sawmill and a gristmill

on the watercourse transgressing his lands, the main stream now known as the Highland Creek. The mills burned down in

1833 and were rebuilt by his son and successor Peter who continued the operation of the mills until his death in 1861.

Some years later the mills were again destroyed by fire. They were not rebuilt. The writer (Secor Winslow Johnston)

recalls playing on and around some of the foundation timbers in or about 1891 or 1892.


In 1815 Isaac and Mary’s son Peter purchased Lots 17 and 18 in Concession D directly across the road allowance later to

be known as the Markham Road. In or about 1816 on the death of his brothers, Isaac’s wife Rachel, Peter set aside one

half acre of his lands as a burial plot for the Secor families. Rachel is believed to be the first to rest there in, soon to be

followed by her mother-in-law. They are buried in the Plot provided by their son Peter.

==============

On Aug. 22, 1775 -

England's King George III proclaimed the "American colonies in a state of open rebellion."

PROCLAMATION "Those loyalists who have adhered to the Unity of the Empire and joined the Royal standard before

the Treaty of Separation in the year 1785, and all their children and their descendants by either sex are to be

distinguished by the following capitals, affixed to their names; U.E. Alluding to their Great Principle - The Unity Of The

Empire"


In November, 1789, Lord Dorchester, requested the council at Quebec "to put a mark of honor upon the families who

adhered to the unity of the Empire and joined the Royal Standard in America before the treaty of separation in the year

1783." The council concurred, and thereafter all Loyalists were "to be distinguished by the letter U.E. affixed to their

names, alluding to their great principle, the unity of the Empire." A register of the U.E. Loyalists was ordered to be kept,

and for twenty years names were added to this list. The distinction has not been assumed.

The Loyalists resident in New York went to Britain, Nova Scotia, and Upper Canada. It is estimated that 2,000 persons

crossed the Atlantic between 1775 and 1785, a number of whom, however, afterwards came to Canada.

The Commission opened their investigation in October, under the following classification: -

0. Those who had rendered services to Great Britain.

1. Those who had borne arms against the revolution.

2. Uniform Loyalists.

3. Loyalists resident in Great Britain.

4. Those who took oaths of allegiance to the American States,

but afterward joined the British.

5. Those who armed with the Americans and later joined the British army or navy.

Claimants had to state specifically in writing the nature of their losses. Claims were first ordered to be presented by

March 25th, 1784, but the time was later extended till 1790. On the first date mentioned, 2,063 claims were presented,

representing a loss of about $35,000,000 in real and personal property. $11,770,000 in debts and $443,000 in incomes,
