      Annals Of The Town Of Warren: With The Early History Of St. George's, Broad Bay And The Neighboring Settlements On The Waldo Patent 4 editions
      By Cyrus Eaton
      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. 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.

      The subscribers humbly show that sixteen of them have been at considerable expense at transporting themselves to a certain Island at the eastward, within this Province, situated on the southwest of Egemogen Reach, known by the name of Deer Island, which at high water seems to be separated into two, tho' at low water appears to be one Intire Island, have built themselves Houses, and are with the rest of your Petitioners willing to bring forward a settlement there. Pray this Court for the Incouragement of so good a work, to make them a grant of the whole of said Island, or at least that end of it, settled upon as aforesaid ; which is accounted to be about six or seven miles in length, and two or three in breadth in the widest part thereof; tho' in some places not half a mile. Or otherwise to dispose of the whole of said Island to them, or only the southeast end aforesaid, as this Court in their Wisdom shall think fit for such sum or sums of money as may be judged reasonable, and your Petitioners beg leave further to add that they are not Petitioners included in the twelve townships already granted

      To His Excellency Thomas Carleton Esquire Lieutenant Governor of the Province of New Brunswick etc etc

      The memorial of James Turner, David Eastman, Jonathan Greenlaw, Lachlan McCudy and others...

      Humbly sheweth

      That your Memorialists were of the number of those persons who during the war between Great Britain and her Colonies, left their possessions on account of their attachment to the British Government, and sheltered themselves and families from the rage of their enemies in His Majesty's Garrison then established at Penobscot...

      That previous to the Garrison's evacuation Penobscot the General there commanding agreeable to his instructions, directed to be made known to your Memorialists, that besides the Land allowed indiscriminately to all Loyalists desirous to settle in the bay of Passamaquaddie, those of the Penobscot association who had families should be allowed a certain proportion of Land for each woman and child to be laid out in the rear of the Land given to the Loyalists...

      That accordingly directions were given to the Surveyors who actually did lay out land for each woman and child belonging to the families of the Penobscot association and the Lots were drawn and assigned to each one.

      That numbers of those children now come to maturity and others concerned in the said Land have been and are still desirous to occupy and improve but have been much discouraged therefrom, as hitherto no Grant could be obtained to confirm the Possession- as also it having been represented to your Memorialists that certain persons now of the Association have applied for and allowed License to occupy a large portion of the Lands allotted to the families of your Memorialists

      Your Memorialists therefore beseech your Excellency a Grant of the Land agreeable to the original Survey...

      And as in Duty bound etc

      Greenlaw, Ebenezer of Penobscot. He was settled on Deer Island in 1761 and served with his five brother during the French War. At the beginning of he rebellion he was taken by the rebels and put in irons because he would not join them in the siege of Penobscot. After coming within British lines for a year, he returned to Deer Island but, when Penobscot was evacuated, came away to St Andrews, NB. His father divided his estate between three of his sons. Claims for a fishing schooner part owned with Jonathan and Alexander Greenlaw; a house and 40 acres; 250 acres of woodland.

      Greenlaw, Jonathan & Alexander of Penobscot. Memorial, St Andrews, NB, 1786. They are two of four brothers who, with their brother Charles Greenlaw, took up lands on Deer Island near Penobscot and cleared 30 acres. When the British came there they all took the oath of allegiance to the Crown and, on the coming of the rebels, the four brothers were drived into the woods before trying to escape on their own vessel, the Egamagan. They were intercepted by the rebel brig Pallas flying British colours and were schackled hand and foot to the deck while their estate was plundered. They were so badly abused that their brother Charles is not sometimes out of his senses. Ebeneer Greenlaw had disposed of his estate but at a small consideration. Jonathan Greenlaw, when Penobscot was evacuated, took his house to pieces and brought it with him to St Andrews. Claim for a small schooner with cargo of salt & provisions; pork, fish, etc. Account [undated] of the Sufferings of Ebenezer Greenlaw.

      Jonathan, Ebenezer and Alexander Greenlaw

      These three loyalists (whose aged parents died about 1776) had lands on Deer Island, near Penobscot. They were all taken prisoners, with their brother Charles, by the "rebel brig Pallas," and treated with every indignity, so much so that Charles became insane. They were all settled at St Andrews, New Brunswick, in 1786. (A.O 13/50.) The three brother claimed L657 1s, and were allowed L50 each. (A.O. 12/109.) According to Sabine, Jonathan died in 1818, aged 80; Ebenezer about 1810, aged 70; and Charles about 1810, aged 70, all at St Andrews.

      GREENLAW, Jonathan. Of Castine, Maine. Brother of Charles Greenlaw.

      (New claim)
      To the Commissioners appointed by Act of Parliament for enquiring into the Losses and Services of the American Loyalists
      The Memorial of Jonathan, Ebenezer and Alexander Greenlaw
      Humbly Sheweth
      That your Memorialists had formerly taken up Lands on Deer Island near Penobscot, on which they had made great Improvements (besides clearing thirty acres for their aged Parents who died ten years ago) tho they had no Title from the Crown to hold those Lands being prevented by the War from obtaining it.
      That they were always esteemed Loyal Subjects, and when the British Troops took Post at Penobscot, they with another Brother went and took the Oath of allegiance before General McLean who permitted them to return to their Families. That this proceeding gave great offence to their Rebel Neighbors. On the arrival of the Rebel Force against the Fort your Memorialists finding it impossible to give their assistance to the British retired into the Woods for a time, and after returning home were advised to go up and satisfy the Rebel Commadore that they were not in the Fort and thereby save their Property. That on their wy up for that Purpose with their other Brother in a Vessel of their own they were taken by the Rebel Brig Pallas, and were treated with every Indignity by the Crew who made a Prize of their Vessel, plundered their Farms, frightened and abused their Families, and carried your Memorialists to the Commadore, who ordered them to be closely confined on board of different ships where they were abused in a most inhuman manner, insomuch that their Brother Charles is at time bereft of his Sences. That after the Siege your Memorialists returned home, and as the place was under Subjection to the British two of them remained upon their Farms until the Evacuation, when knowing it would not be possible to live in peace under the Rebel Government removed to St Andrews, but previous to his coming away Ebenezer disposed of his Farm for an invaluable Consideration which has not yet been fully made, rather than lose his whole Improvement.
      That Jonathan Greenlaw removed his Family to Penobscot where he built a House which at the Evacuation he took to Pieces and brought with him to St Andrews at a great Expence.
      Your Memorialists therefore having stated their Cases beg your Honors will be pleased at attend to their Claims which are hereto annexed, and as each of them has a large Family and His Majesty's allowance of Provisions is almost at an end, the smallest Compensation will be accepted with Gratitude.
      And your Memorialists etc.

      To His Excellency Thomas Carleton Esquire Lieutenant Governor of the Province of New Brunswick etc etc

      The memorial of James Turner, David Eastman, Jonathan Greenlaw, Lachlan McCudy and others...

      Humbly sheweth

      That your Memorialists were of the number of those persons who during the war between Great Britain and her Colonies, left their possessions on account of their attachment to the British Government, and sheltered themselves and families from the rage of their enemies in His Majesty's Garrison then established at Penobscot...

      That previous to the Garrison's evacuation Penobscot the General there commanding agreeable to his instructions, directed to be made known to your Memorialists, that besides the Land allowed indiscriminately to all Loyalists desirous to settle in the bay of Passamaquaddie, those of the Penobscot association who had families should be allowed a certain proportion of Land for each woman and child to be laid out in the rear of the Land given to the Loyalists...

      That accordingly directions were given to the Surveyors who actually did lay out land for each woman and child belonging to the families of the Penobscot association and the Lots were drawn and assigned to each one.

      That numbers of those children now come to maturity and others concerned in the said Land have been and are still desirous to occupy and improve but have been much discouraged therefrom, as hitherto no Grant could be obtained to confirm the Possession- as also it having been represented to your Memorialists that certain persons now of the Association have applied for and allowed License to occupy a large portion of the Lands allotted to the families of your Memorialists

      Your Memorialists therefore beseech your Excellency a Grant of the Land agreeable to the original Survey...

      And as in Duty bound etc

      Press of Stanley and Usher. Boston. 1886

      p 19
      Jonathan Greenlaw, who came as early as 1762 or 1762, one of the family of that name who came shortly after, and next to William Eaton, the first settler, gave a deed to Kent of a tract of land containing a mile square, in consideration of the erection and maintenance of a grist-mill.

      p 43
      Greenlaw - The next persons who came were five by the name of Greenlaw. They settled on Campbell's Neck, and the farm of Mr Samuel W Campbell, and that of Mr William Foster's heirs - in all about five hundred acres. Their names were Jonathan, Charles, Alexander, Ebenezer, and William, and whether they were all brothers or not, I do not know. They were natives of Scotland, and had emigrated from that country not long before, and were endeavoring to find a place to settled upon with which they might be suited. The places they took up did so, and they commenced settlements. After the occupation of Bagaduce by the British in 1779, they made frequent visits there, as they were zealous loyalists, and were suspected of carrying information - a cause of displeasure to their neighbors, who almost all were friendly to the American cause. They were the persons before spoken of as going with the British in 1783 to the Provinces, where they settled, and their descendants still reside there. Some time after, two of the sons of Mr Jonathan Greenlaw, Messrs William and Richard Greenlaw, came back and remained will their deaths. They were brought back by the brothers in law of Mr William Greenlaw - Messrs Joseph Whitmore and Captain Seth Hatch - who went after them in a vessel.

      p 51
      Mr [William] Foster settled upon a part of the land formerly occupied by the Greenlaw family, but whether he came here before they left or not is not known to us, but as he had a two hundred acre lot it is probable that he purchased the rights of one of them at least, which with his own would entitle him to that quantity.

      p 52
      [John Campbell was a large landed proprietor, owning one lot of two hundred acres, another known as the Campbell's Neck lot of 77, and the island near known as Campbell's Island, of 88 acres, and it is probable that he purchased the rights of some of the Greenlaw family, as he would of his own right be entitled to but 100 acres.

      p 61
      William Greenlaw was the first settler near what is called Fish Creek. He was the son of Mr Jonathan Greenlaw, mentioned before, who went with the British to New Brunswick in 1783. As before stated, the subject of this sketch returned with his brother Richard. The wife of Mr Greenlaw was Miss Rebecca Babbidge, a daughter of Mr William Babbidge; and at the time of their marriage there was no person qualified to solemnize marriages nearer than Bagaduce, where the chaplain to the garrison officiated. The person who performed the duties of chaplain, as well as surgeon, was Dr John Calef, a refugee from Massachusetts, in which State he was born, in Ipswich; and when the troops evacuated the place, he went with them into the Province of New Brunswick, where he lived the remainder of his days. Mr Greenlaw was married in 1780, and he and Mr Joseph Whitmore, with their intended wives, who were sisters, went there for the purpose, and they were both joined in marriage on the same day. Mr Greenlaw and wife were the parents of 10 sons and 1 daughter, who lived to manhood and womanhood. The eldest of the sons was William, who was lost at sea on a whaling voyage, when a young man. The second son was the late Captain John Greenlaw, who was a capable and intelligent master-mariner, who died in 1870, at the age of 87 years, after having lived with his wife in wedlock 66 years. He was the father of the present Captain Jeremiah H, Ebenezer, and William Greenlaw. Another son was Mr James Greelaw, who was drowned not far from 1830, leaving a family. Anotehr was Captain Jonathan Greenlaw, who removed to Eatport, out of which place he sailed many years. Another was the late Captain Richard Greenlaw, the father of the present Mr Thomas R Greenlaw. Another was Thomas Greenlaw, who was drowned when a young man. Another was Mr Ebenezer Greenlaw, the father of the present Mr Eben Greenlaw 2d. Another was the late Captain Walter Greenlaw, well known in his day, who died at sea in about the year 1847. Another is the present Levi Greenlaw, the sole survivor, at te age of 79 years in 1882. And the other was the late Mr William Greenlaw. The daughter was the wife of Mr Daniel C Copp, who removed from this place to Castine, who was by trade a ship carpenter and joiner, and from Castine he removed to the city of Ellsworth, where he died.

      About this family there was one singularity; of the 10 sons there were 5who could use no food or drink in which there was anything sweet, operating upon them as an emetic; while upon the remaining 5 it had no such effect. Mr Greenlaw was one of whom every one who knew him spoke in praise, as a quiet, honest, and upright man. The land occupied by him was not a part of that taken up by his father and uncles, as that passed into other hands; but as he was here so early, he was entitled to a settler's right, and the place is still the property of his descendants.

      p 142
      Richard Greenlaw was the youngest son of Mr Jonathan Greenlaw, who settled here shortly after William Eaton and went when a child to New Brunswick with his father in 1783, but returned with his brother William. He was not the owner of any real estate, we think, but resided upon the farm of his son during the later years of his life. His wife was Miss Mary Jordan, a daughter of Mrs James Jordan, and he was by trade a ship-carpenter. Their sons were: Richard, who removed to the town of Kilmarnock, Maine, which is now called Medford. Another was the late Mr James J Greenlaw. Another was the present Mr Joseph S Greenlaw. Another was Mr Samuel J Greenlaw. Another was Mr William L Greenlaw, who resides in Newburyport. Another was Mr John C J Greenlaw, who died many years ago. The daughter were the wives of Mr George Barbour and Mr Thomas V Howard; and two live in Massachusetts.
