Note: "Southard or Southart, Thomas, of Gd [Gravesend], (sup.) English, m. Annica da. of Anthony Jansen from Salee. Bought Dec. 20, 1650, of Thomas Applegate the one half of the lot Applegate bought of Randell Hunt, as per Gd. rec. Owned plantation-lot No. 11 in Gd in 1653. He quarrelled with his father-in-law Anthony Jansen about the ownership of cattle, on which Anthony was imprisoned by the local court of Gd, but released by the higher one of the colony, as per p. 136 of Calendar of Dutch Man. He appears to have removed to Hempstead, where he resided in 1670, having sons Thomas Junr and John, whose descendants reside in that locality. He was also probably the ancestor of the Southards of N.J.... " See Samuel, son of Thomas, Jr. for more info.
From a Family Group Sheet in LDS online site:
"It was fortunate for me that Jane and Jim were still in New Jersey when I found I had yet another family of that state to be researched. Jacob Falkenburg, grandson of the first Henry Jacob Falkenburg, married a Phoebe Southard. Jane and Jim found this researched by Ralph Potter at the New Jersey Historical Society in Newark. The first American Southards were not of which we can be proud. Let us hope that their unlovable characteristics were diluted through the years by other more gentle traits given to us by other ancestors.
"Thomas Southard was the first of this family in America. He was probably of a family of English dissenters who went first to Holland -- as he was born there about 1615, possibly in Leyden. He settled at Gravesend, Long Island and went to work for a farmer named Anthony Jansen. Anthony was of a somewhat higher station in life and a man of property on Long Island. His father was Jan Jansen Van Haarlem. As you know, Haarlem is a city in Holland and no doubt that district in New York got its name from that Dutch city.
"Anthony and Grietje Reyniers were married on board the ship that brought them to America ca 1631. Annica, the first of their four daughters, was born around 1632 in what is now lower Manhattan in New York City. In a mutually agreeable arrangement Thomas Southard and Annica Jansen were married. Thomas was probably looking to a dower, and Anthony no doubt happy to have one of his daughters off his hands. Thomas bought land of Anthony whereby making them neighbors. Court records show Anthony to be mean and quarrelsome, and at odds with the law, with the church pastor and his wife, and finally with Thomas who was no less contentious. When it became apparent that things would be no better between the families, Thomas and Annica moved to Hempstead, Long Island. There they raised their family of 9 children. They died there, he in 1688. Annica was still living in 1698. Their second son, John, was our ancestor.
"As the sons grew to manhood they found it more difficult to live in Hempstead as they felt more Dutch than English.
"In the years before the Revolution, feelings ran high between the American rebels and those loyal to the crown. Their English neighbors insisted they take sides. To escape this, many Southards decided to leave Hempstead, some going up the Hudson River and others going to Connecticut. Our John had married Grace Carman who lived on a neighboring farm. I believe she was the daughter of either Joseph or Caleb Carman. Thus the name ...."

Note

Note: The "Register in Alphabetical Order, of the Early Settlers of Kings
County, Long Island, N.Y., from its First Settlement by Europeans to
1700" by Teunis G. Bergen records the following:
"Southard or Southhart, Thomas, of Gravesend, (sup) English, m. Annica
da. of Anthony Jansen from Salee. Bought Dec. 20, 1650, of Thomas
Applegate the one half of the lot Applegate bought of Randell Hunt, as per
Gravesend rec. Owned plantation-lot No. 11 in Gd in 1653. He quarrelled
with his father-in-law Anthony Jansen about the owership of cattle, on
which Anthony was imprisined by the local court of Gravesend, but
released by the higher one of the colony, as per p. 136 of the Calendar of
Dutch Man. He appears to have removed to Hempstead, where he resided
in 1670, having sons Thomas Jun and John, whose descendants reside in
that locality. He was also probably the ancestor of the Southards of N.J.
Abraham, son of Thomas Jun, settled in Bernardstown,N.J. whose
grandson, the Hon. Samuel L. Southard, represented N.J. as Senator in the
Congress of 1821, in 1823, was Secretary of the Navy, in 1841, chosen
president of the Senate and on the death of Harrison, in April of that
year, acting Vice President, as per p. 47 of Vol 2 of Thompson's L.I. Made
his mark to to documents."
Note: DNA testing is being used to test the theory that Thomas Southard was related to Edward Southworth, father of Constant and Thomas who emigrated to America in 1627. We urgently need at least two men with proven paper trails from Constant Southworth to have DNA testing with Family Tree DNA to prove or disprove this relationship.

SOUTHARD
It was fortunate for me that Jane and Jim were still in New Jersey when I
found I had yet another family of that state to be researched. Jacob
Falkenburg, grandson of the first Henry Jacob Falkenburg, married a
Phoebe Southard. Jane and Jim found this researched by Ralph Potter at
the New Jersey Historical Society in Newark.
The first American Southards were not of which we can be proud. Let us
hope that their unloveable characteristics were diluted through the years
by other more gentle traits given to us by other ancestors.
Thomas Southard was the first of this family in America. He was probably
of a family of English dissenters who went first to Holland--as he was
born there about 1615, possibly in Leyden. He settled at Gravesend, Long
Island and went to work for a farmer named Anthony Jansen. Anthony was of
a somewhat higher station in life and a man of property on Long Island.
His father was Jan Jansen Van Haarlem. As you know, Haarlem is a city in
Holland and no doubt that district in New York get it's name from that
Dutch city.
Anthony and Grietje Reyniers were married on board the ship that brought
them to America ca 1631. Annica, the first of their four daughters, was
born around 1632 in what is now lower Manhattan in New York City. In a
mutually agreeable arrangement Thomas Southard and Annica Jansen were
married. Thomas was probably looking to a dower, and Anthony no doubt
happy to have one of his daughters off hia hands. Thomas bought land of
Anthony whereby making them neighbors. Court records show Anthony to be
mean and quarrelsome, and at odds with the law, with the church pastor
and his wife, and finally with Thomas who was no less contentious. When
it became apparent that things would be no better between the families,
Thomas and Annica moved to Hempstead, Long Island. There they raised
their family family of 9 children. They died there , he in 1688 . Annica
was still living in 1698. Their second son John was our ancestor.
As the sons grew to manhood they found it more difficult to live in
Hempstead as they felt more Dutch than English.
In the years before the Revolution feelings ran high between the American
rebels and those loyal to the crown. Their English neighbors insisted
they take sides. To escape this many Southards decided to leave Hempstead
, some going up the Hudson River and others going to Connecticut. Our
John had married Grace Carman who lived on a neighboring farm. I believe
she was the daughter of either Joseph or Caleb Carman. Thus the name
Caleb was introduced into the family. Caleb was the third son of Grace
and John , born about 1700. He is our ancestor. On July 31, 1732 he was
married to Charity Beat in St. George's Episcopal Church in Nassua,
Long Island---the same church in which his parents John and Grace were
married. In later research I found that Beat was also spelled Beatje.
This tells us that Charity was Dutch--at least on her father's side.
Caleb and Charity chose to leave Hempstead, going to Connecticut. They
lived there for only a short while before going down the coast to
southern New Jersey. In Monmouth Co tjeir eldest daughter Phoebe was
married to Jacob Falkenburg. Their son Caleb was the grandfather of our
Mary Falkenburg Torrie. Caleb was the name given to Mary's brother,
making him our great uncle. I find it exciting that that name was in our
family into the twentieth century.[frsout2.FTW]
