Biography

David was a Friend (Quaker)

"David, b. ca. 1683-4; m. Mary Haight 1711."[1]

"David 'Hewstis' married Mary Haight of Flushing, Long Island, on 13 April 1711, under the care of the Flushing Friends (Quaker) Meeting.[2]

"In 1724 David Huestis was disowned from Flushing Monthly Meeting (which then included Westchester County) for 'walking disorderly'. In 1726 he purchased his nephew Moses Molyneux's right in the Long Reach, Eastchester, but was ejected in a suit of trespass in 1733. He was at Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County by 10 May of 1734, when he borrowed money as 'David Hustis of East Chester in the County of West Chester' from Joseph Taylor of Yonkers, for which Taylor had to sue him in Dutchess County Court of Common Pleas in 1740. .."[3]

His father disowned him too: Robert's will, proved March 20, 1704/5, distributed land to all his brothers but left David one shilling.[4] His brother Robert Jr. was kinder to David than their father had been: Robert Jr.died in 1712, without issue, and left David the house, homelot, orchard, and other lands in the borough town of Westchester that their father had left to him.[5]
