    • John Greenlaw is said to have been from Cadder (Calder), Scotland, which is just north of Glasgow. When he returned to Scotland after the war, he lived in Glasgow. Colin Greenlaw claims our Greenlaws are the same family from Cumbernauld, Scotland (even further north from Glasgow), but those Greenlaws there don't seem to match up. Colin Greenlaw also claims they were from Strayton, which is much further east from Glasgow. The obituary of Thomas Greenlaw s Jonathan suggests they were from Glasgow.

      Theodore C Holmes "Loyalists to Canada" names parents as John Greenlaw m Elizabeth Thompson, and grandparents as David Greenlaw m Joan Wordy. Records can be found of these couples. but I see nothing that would suggest that William's lineage is necessarily connected to these couples.
    • Problems I have with the Greenlaw Genealogy

      1 Where do the names of the children come from?

      2 Why do people think the Greenlaws were from Strayton? Liberton? Etc?

      3. Numerous names and dates of descendants for which I can't find sources.

      6. Grandchildren of William and Jane: The earliest record I can find of the third Greenlaw generation is the return at Passamaquoddy in 1784. Unfortunately, the enumeration named men, women, children under 10, and children 10 and older. There was no separation by family. Several parent-child relationships were later stated explicitly, and some others can be deduced. Still others are suggested. The remainder I have only found in trees online. Where did these lists come from? Are there any baptismal records in Maine?

      Who is Mary Greenlaw m Daniel Cleary?
      Who is Sarah Greenlaw m Creighton McGee?
      Who is Catherine Greenlaw m Charles McCallum?
      Who is Alvina Greenlaw m Isaac Brock Thurber? Birth is given as Chamcook, Campobello and Charlotte, Maine.
      Who is David Greenlaw witness to marriage Silas Smith m Hannah Brown?

      p 51
      With a feeling of loyalty toward their mother country, they frequently sought the social element at Bagaduce (Castine) which was seized in 1779 by the British for military headquarters in the East. Through this intimacy with that post they were suspected of transmitting information that was inimical to the interests of their American neighbors and consequently when peace was declared in 1782, the British troops evacuated Castine, and left the loyalists unprotected. The latter, including the Greenlaws, being Tories, took their departure for the Canadian Maritime Provinces, where they were designated refugees and were rewarded for they [sic] loyalty by grants of land from their home government. The majority remained there and many possessed an intense hatred of the New Republic, which bitter feeling has been handed down to their posterity to the present time.

    • Who did the Greenlaws sell land to?

      Jonathan, Ebenezer and Alexander Greenlaw were each granted a lot in the town of St Andrews and a farm lot in the parish of St Andrews shortly after their arrival in New Brunswick. Ebenezer was granted another lot further us the river to make "a Settlement for his Children." As far as the disposal of these lots go, there are 10 deeds in existence where the grantee of the original lot sold all or parts of the lots. Of these deeds 4 were to local notable figures (a magistrate, an esquire, a chancery in court, and a couple of apparent real estate speculators), 5 were to family members (all to sons of the grantees), and the remaining 1 was to Samuel Johnson. Johnson was a farmer and cooper, not notable in any other way, and certainly not a land speculator.

      p 85 Greenlaw on the Dolphin 1753

      These offers attracted the attention of sundry persons in Stirling, Glasgow, and other places in Scotland, who, after consultation, entered into an agreement, the terms of which are not exactly known, to emigrate. Some of them, who were without families, agreed to work for Waldo four years in payment of their passage. Others, at stipulated times after their arrival, were to pay for their passages as well as for supplies furnished. Being collected for embarkation to the number of sixty, besides ten or more children, who went passage free, they went on board the brig Dolphin, Captain Cooters, in the summer of 1753, and, after touching at Piscataqua, where they remained a week or more, arrived in George's river in September. Dr Robinson had contracted with Waldo to erect a house, and have it ready for their reception on their arrival. This he commenced near the house occupied by the late Capt Dagget, since rebuilt by his grandson, E B Alford. [Approximately near the intersection of Rte1 and Depot Road in present Warren.] He built the walls of logs, and partitioned the inside into fourteen rooms designed to accommodate the whole company, which contained that number of families. But from the want of materials, or other cause, the roof was never made, and the structure remained unfinished and unoccupied till the timber decayed. In consequence of Robinson's failure to complete this job, the emigrants scattered round and lived the first winter with the old settlers. Provisions were supplied them by Waldo; who appointed Boice Cooper a kind of commissary to take charge of, and deliver them out at stated times. The names of these emigrants were Archibald Anderson, John Dicke, Andrew Malcolm, John Miller, John Crawford, Thomas Johnston, John Mucklewee, John Brison, Andrew Bird, John Kirkpatrick, John Hodgins, John Carswell, John Brown, Robert Kye, Grenlaw, Wilke, Beverage, Auchmuty, and Anderson. They were mostly mechanics, and unacquainted with all agricultural operations, except reaping and threshing. Malcolm was a Glasgow weaver; and Archibald Anderson, who married his sister and belonged to Bannockburn, was of the same trade, and had worked in the same city. Dicke of Stirling, was a maltster and brewer, Miller a delfware manufacturer, Kirkpatrick a cooper, Hodgins a bookbinder, Crawford a shepherd or herdsman, and Auchmuty a slaie maker. Having the promise of lands within two miles of tide waters, they naturally looked forward to the comforts of city life to which they had been accustomed at home; and fearful of Indian hostilities, and unacquainted as they were with the wild beasts that frequented the woods, they could not think of going to separate farms, and fixing their habitations at a distance from each other.

      p 85
      1754. Accordingly when the spring opened in 1754, they went out to the place assigned them for a new city, and took possession of their half acre lots, on which they erected small log huts, in a continuous street betweem the present house or Gilbert Anderson and the school-house No 13. To this embryo city they gave the name of Stirling, in honor of that from which most of them had come.
      [See map: https://oshermaps.org/browse-maps?id=47060 Now Stirling road, between North and South ponds.]

      p 88
      Those who were able to bear arms, were organized into companies, and, for a great portion of the time, drew pay and rations, which formed the principal means of support for their families.

      With regard to that twowards the settlers, though he [Samuel Waldo] seems to have been cautious and shrewd in making a bargain, we do not find that the Iris settlers, who had been in the country and knew what to expect, had any particular complaints to make. But the Scotch and Germans, who received his offers in their own country, and judged of them according to what they had there known of upland, meadow, tide waters, &c, were wretchedly disappointed, and complained most bitterly of his deception and non-performance of conditions.

      William and Jane Greenlaw migrated from Grenock, Scotland, to American in the summer of 1753 on the sailing ship Dolphin. Before leaving Scotland, the family probably moved to a seaport near the coast. After landing in America, they may have stayed, for a brief time, at Piscataquis Plantation (Kittery, Maine), with other Scotch immigrants. The Dolphin, with the Greenlaw family and its other passengers, then sailed in a northeasterly direction along the coast of Maine to the St George's River, and landed near Warren, Maine. Eventually the family settled on Deer Island in Penobscot Bay. To this day, parts of the island - Greenlaw Road, Greelaw Neck, and Greenlaw Cove - bear the family's name. Although the exact number of their children is not known, there were six sons: Alexander, Charles, Ebenezer, James, Jonathan and William, all of whom were born in Scotland.

      Suggestion that the Greenlaws did not arrive on the Dolphin
      In the "The Glasgow Courant, From Monday, July 16, to Monday , July 23, 1753", Page 4, Col. 2, Par. 3
      (this is a Newspaper) found at the The Mitchell Library, North Street, Glasgow, Scotland, G3 7DN is the following:
      "The Passengers that have engaged or agreed to proceed to Mr Waldo?s Settlement on St George?s River in New England, are desired to have their Chests and Baggage, &c the Beginning of this Week on board the Joanna, Capt Hugh Coulter Commander, now lying at Greenock.
      NB For the Conveniency of the said Passengers Gabart is freighted to carry their Baggage from the Key of Glasgow to the ship, and they are desired not to delay sending the same."
      Yes, the Greenlaw's did not come to the US on the Brig. Dolphin.

      Greenlaw - Deer Isle
      William Greenlaw married Jane -, by whom he had, possibly among other children, five sons, Ebenezer, Charles, Jonathan, Alexander, and William.

      William Greenlaw and his family came to America from Scotland, in the "Dolphin", in the summer of 1753. After touching at Piscataqua, where the Greenlaw family and other Scotch immigrants remained for a week or more, the "Dolphin" and its passengers proceeded up George's River, the passengers landing on the west side of the river, in the lower part of what is now Warren, in September. William Greenlaw and his family moved from what is now Warren to Boston, from which place they moved to what is now Penobscot, Deer Isle or vicinity, where they settled on a farm; and where William Greenlaw is said to have been living near the close of the 18th Century.

      William Greenlaw was a merchant, probably in Boston.

      Jonathan Greenlaw, s William m Jane, was born about 1738, probably in Scotland. He died in St Andrews in 1818, ae 80. Children: 6 sons, possibly daughters.

      Jonathan Greenlaw and his brothers Charles, Alexander and Ebenezer and his father or brother William came to Deer Isle in or before 1762; and they settled on Campbell's Neck. They were Loyalists and suuspected of carrying information to the British at Bagaduce, after it was taken by the British in 1779. The Greenlaw family went there to live, probably being driven there by public opinion. When Bagaduce was evacuated by the royal forces in 1783, Jonathan and two of his brothers moved to the British provinces with their families. William Greenlaw Jr remained in Main, here he lived in St George.

      For many years there were no black sleep among the Loyalists on the river, but finally a very black one appeared. John Dunbar, who drew the first lot and headed
      the list of Port Matoon grantees, abandoned his grant and moved to Campobello. There he worked in a mill. One day he demanded of his wife a gold piece which she was saving. When she refused to give it to him he killed her. He was tried at St Andrews, found guilty and sentenced to be hanged. This is news because of what happened to him afterwards. Just before the day appointed for the hanging he escaped and wandered through the woods to Bayside where he asked for work from the son of Captain Bradford who was absent. When the Captain returned he recognized Dunbar and Jailer Hitchings was able to recapture his prisoner. It was not long, however, before another break occurred, this time by the aid of one Greenlaw, a confined debtor. Dunbar completely disappeared. His case was almost forgotten. One day a man named Bentley, a resident of St. Andrews, was in Boston walking aimlessly along a street. There was a man shingling the roof of a house. Bentley paid no attention, but just as he was passing a shingle blew down and hit him in the face. He looked up and recognized Dunbar, whose next exit was to the gallows. Justice, not so blind on this occasion, had followed the custom in lumber countries of keeping her tally with a shingle.

      Glimpses of the Past - The garden lots in Morristown (St. Stephen) granted to John DUNBAR and associates were 107 in number. The 54 in the western division called Marks division, excepting lot 42 and the 53 in the eastern or Jones Division. (see original for list of grantees) ... John Dunbar, who is named on the grant, is said to have been the first person to suffer capital punishment in the county. He was a grantee of St. Andrews as well as Morristown, but it does not appear that he ever became a resident of either place. The traditional account of his crime and punishment is as follows: He was living on Campobello along the year 1798 and worked in a saw mill there. His wife had a gold coin of which he wanted to take possession in order to buy rum. Upon her refusing to give it to him, he killed her. He was arrested, taken to St. Andrews, tried and found guilty and sentenced to be hanged. Previous to the day fixed for his execution, he escaped from jail and made his way to Bay Side, seven miles from the shiretown where he found employment with the son of Capt. BRADFORD to work in the adjacent woods. The captain was away from home at the time but on his return when he saw Dunbar he recognized him as the escaped prisoner. He communicated his discovery to Jailer HITCHINGS, who came out to Bay Side, arrested Dunbar and took him back to jail. It was not long until, through the assistance of one GREENLOW, a confined debtor, he again escaped and made his way to Boston. A man named BENTLEY, a resident of St. Andrews, afterwards went to Boston and one day, as he was passing a house on a street in that city, he was struck on the head by a shingle. On looking up to see whence the shingle came, he recognized the man engaged in shingling the roof to be Dunbar. Bentley gave information which led to Dunbar being once more arrested. He was in time brought back to his old quarters to St. Andrews jail and the next time he emerged from its precincts was on the march to the gallows on which he expiated his crime.

      Colin writes (1987) that the modern name of the town where William Greenlaw was born in 1712 is now spelled Strayton; however is was "spelled variously by different clerks as Straiton, Straitown, and Stretton."

      Colin Greenlaw writes on December 28, 1988 that (new information is capitalized) "...I and your mother are seventh generation Greenlaw descendants from Wm and Jane Greenlaw, who migrated to this side of the Atlantic from Scotland in 1753. They came over with SIX sons, Jonathan, William, JAMES, Alexander, Ebenezer, and CHARLES. ...About six weeks I found the original records of the births of Jonathan, William and James in the parish of CUMBERNAULD, COUNTY OF DUMBARTON, SCOTLAND, on microfilm of those original records (housed in the New Register House in Edinburgh, Scotland).
