Axtell
  1738 - In the Western edges of the original Elizabeth Town purchase, the proprietors brought actions of trespass and ejectment against Benjamin Manning and Wright Skinner, who had apparently taken land leases in Somerset from the Town Committee, leases which conflicted with the approved claims of Major Daniel Axtell, deceased. - This land dispute was likely part of the large-scale land problems resulting from Philip Carteret and later proprietors assigning land ownership differently than did James Nichols, who was given control of New Jersey during the brief time Carteret was on ship on his way to America. The widow of Major Daniel Axtells, remarried William Goulbourn, and in 1738, with the support of the Proprietors, brought action against Manning and Skinner. In 1744, the Proprietor's, per their meeting minutes, discussed the costs of recovering money spent in the suit of Goulbourn vs. Manning and Skinner. (Hatfield-5, Smrst-7, proprietors-8). The land was evidently his Papack residence (CCG-7a), the same locale where he received deliveries from Janeway. [Wright Skinner]
  Daniel Axtell of Massachusetts managed Newington Plantation for Lady Axtell after her husband and only two sons die. Her husband, also named Daniel was the son of regicide Daniel Axtell. Our ancestor Daniel Axtell's grandfather Thomas was the brother of the regicide. Part of the Newington Plantation was later owned by Henry Augustus Middleton who had vast real estate holdings in South Carolina and in Newport, Rhode Island. In the 1880's Newington became the site of an experimental tea farm under the direction of Dr. Charles Shepard. Surviving tea plants were moved to Wadmalaw Island by Lipton Tea in 1963. The Charleston Tea Plantation is now owned by Bigelow Tea Company. The Newington Plantation now includes a large housing development in Summerville. Nothing remains of the house of 100 windows that was constructed there in the 1700's. Hopefully a drawing of the house exists and will be found.
  Houses in Somerset County: House of Jacob Van Derveer; Knox Headquarters - Road to Pluckemin, Bedminster Township (Page 459) ['The tract lying north of the North Branch of Raritan River and south of the road from Lamington to Bedminster (until lately called Lesser Crossroads) was at an early unknown date bought by Major Daniel Axtell. Jacob Van Derveer bought part of the Axtell tract by 1756 (probably some years before this date) and built his home here. In 1758 he donated some of his land to the Bedminster Church for a building and cemetery, and his wife, who died in 1759, was the first to be buried there.'] [Pre-Revolutionary Dutch houses and families in northern New Jersey and southern New York, 1936]
  Lady Rebecca Axtell daughters: Elizabeth Axtell first married Francis Turgis and then South Carolina Governor Joseph Blake; Ann Axtell first married John Alexander and then South Carolina Governor Joseph Boone; Rebecca Axtell married John Moore, future Attorney General of Pennsylvania.

  London grocer Henry Axtell buys tobacco from agent of Sor Walter Raleigh ['I also note Lawrence Keymis's involvemnet in the tobacco transactions. In 1610, a London grocer named Axtell owed £53 to Keymis. This was ''for tobacco bought by your said subject Henry Axtell of Sir Walter Ralegh.'' This is a considerable sum, about £20,000 in modern terms (1995).'] by Charles Nicholl [The Creature in the Map: A Journey to El Dorado, p. 76 & 277]

This stands upon the northern half of Lot No. 2 in the old plan or model of Charles Town, which lot was granted in 1681 to Theophilus Patey. How this passed to Joseph Boone we cannot say, but in 1717 it is found in his possession. He married Ann Axtell, widow of John Alexander. Mrs. Alexander was the daughter of Landgrave Daniel Axtell, and sister of ''the Lady Elizabeth Blake,'' wife of Joseph Blake, Governor and Lord Proprietor of the colony.'] by Alice R.

  Rev. Henry Axtell (1773-1829) - A founder of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York ['Henry Axtell (6-39) of Mendham, NJ, was the son of Henry ''The Old Major'' Axtell (5-20) and Phoebe (Condict) (Day) Axtell. In 1796, he graduated from Princeton and became the first Axtell to get a college degree. He started an academy in Mendham that year. Then he moved to Geneva, NY, at the north end of Seneca Lake, halfway between Rochester and Syracuse. There he became one of the founders of Hobart College.']
  Slave Counterpoint - Black Culture in the Eighteenth-Century Chesapeake and Lowcountry ['From 1704 to 1706, Daniel Axtell and others operated a tar kiln in which at least four slaves tended the fire, made and carted barrels, and occasionally received cash for their work. On March 30, 1796, for example, Axtell paid five shillings in cash to Nero for minding the kiln. South Carolinians might have been thinking in terms of large profits and sizable labor forces from the first, but, as yet, these were not to be derived from any single agricultural staple.'] by Philip D. Morgan

  South Carolina: A History (Page 138) ['The same year [1705] rice became an enumerated product, parliment passed legislation authorizing bounties on naval stores. England's merchant marine, defended by the royal navy was the country's economic lifeline. Naval stores were essential for national defence, but they were imported from Sweden, a source of supply that could be cut in time of war. Again, thinking in mercantilist terms, England spent hard currency for products manufactured outside the empire. If the American colonies could be encouraged to produce naval stores, the empire could become self-sufficient in a critical area. ¶The bounty was substantial. Each ton of pitch and tar would generate a £4 sterling ($310) bounty and each ton of turpentine £3 sterling ($233). One of the first colonists to operate a tar kiln was Daniel Axtell, a transplanted New Englander. Between 1704 and 1706 he produced a considerable portion of the colony's tar exports. Axtell's profitable enterprise was an example of what could be done. A combination of the end of Queen Anne's War (1702-1713) and a renewal of the bounty for eleven years (1714) had a phenomenal impact on South Carolina's economy.'] by Walter Edgar [South Carolina: A History (Page 138)]

  William Axtell(?) married Margaret De Peyster in New York. He inherited over 2,000 acres in Bedminster, New Jersey from his father Daniel Axtell(?) of St. Andrew Parish, Holborn, England and Jamaica, West Indies and owned a house at 221 Broadway in New York City and a country estate in Flatbush, Brooklyn. He became a Loyalist Colonel and lost his estate. His adopted daughter Elizabeth Shipton and her husband Colonel Aquila Giles purchased the Flatbush property. William's portrait was donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art by former Secretary of the Treasury C. Douglas Dillon of Bedminster. Margaret's portrait is at the New York Historical Society.

When he came to Carolina is not known, but he was here in 1699, carrying on a saw mill and tar and turpentine business in connection with Lady Axtell and Robert Fenwicke, and Gershom Hawks.

  Finally, letters of attorney may allow us to identify some of those New Englanders who made return trips to England. On 13 November 1648, ¶Josiah Stanborough of South Hampton on Long Island constituted W[illia]m Francklin of Boston his attorney irrevocable granting him power to ask &c. all rents due unto him for a messuage or house in Banbury in Oxfordshire now or late in the occupation of W[illiam] Savage a maker of stuffs, & of the receipt to give acquittance, also to compound etc., further grant-ing his said attorney power to alien & sell the said house, deed or deeds of sale to make &c. [Aspinwall 165]. ¶To carry out all these duties, William Franklin would himself have to travel to England (unless he nominated a substitute). However, in conjunction with other similar records and with the broader mercantile activities of Franklin, it is clear that he did travel to England [GM 2:2:568-73].
