(N. E. HIST. GEN. REG., Vol. XIX, (p. 165), (1865), items taken from "Antill Family Records."
Giles Shelley (Godfather of Edward Antill, Jr., whose birth recorded in the next paragraph. S.) was born
July ye 30th 1664.
Edward Antill (son of Edward Antill formerly of Richmond in the County of Surry in Old England,
merchant, but late of New York, in America, attorney at Law, and Sarah his wife) was born in New York
the 17th of June, 1701.
Mrs. Antill seems to have possessed something of the Governor's whimsical obstinacy and petulance.
Mr. Whitehead says Antill was "an oddity," and as an instance thereof relates an incident to the effect that he once expressed to his wife his regret that the women of the day spent so much time in idleness or profitless pursuits, instead of "abiding in the fields with their maidents," gathering flax or grain. The next morning on coming down to breakfast Mr. Antill found the house deserted, and no signs of the matutinal repast. His wife had taken him at his word, and was out in the fields with her handmaidents, pulling flax. This is an illustration of the serious view Mr. Antill took of life.

Antill House,, River Road, Piscataway. 1741; destroyed.
The Antill house is the only major Georgian structure in this area to retain the design of the Dutch colonial
farmhouse. Thus the Antill house is much wider than it is deep; but this width is part of the original plan rather than the result of the addition
of rooms at the side, as was the common practice in the first Dutch Colonial homes in Bergen county. Despite the portico added
on in the Greek Revival period, one can still see the flare of the gambrel roof. This was another Dutch colonial feature; the Antill
house was the only mansion to include it.
While the structure's external appears part of the local Dutch tradition, the interior indicates the influence
of the Georgian style. There are two rooms on each side of a classical hallway, and the common classical motifs are used on walls and mantels.

ANTILL HOUSE or ROSS HALL (Figs. 64, 65, 66 and 67)
River Road, Piscataway
Antill House was the only major Georgian home in the New Brunswick area to retain aspects of the Dutch-Flemish-colonial
farmhouse. Like the Zabriski-Von Steuben House in North Hackensack, Antill House was much wider than it was
deep (56 feet by 35 feet). Both houses had flared eaves at the base
of their gambrel roofs. Both these features are indicative of the Dutch-Flemish colonial tradition. The
Antill House differed from other Dutch farmhouses in that its width was original with the construction of
the home and its interior arrangement followed the Georgian manner.
The foundations of the house were stone, the exterior walls were brick which was then stuccoed over. The portico
on the front was added in the Greek Revival period and was particularly interesting for its adaptation to a sloped
site. The portico was raised, with six Doric columns over six truncated Doric pilasters that were attached
to a rusticated basement. The portico repeated the horizontal emphasis of the original structure but hid the flared
eaves of the roof. The interior had the typical Georgian arrangement, with four rooms coming off a center hallway.
However, in the Antill House, teh front rooms were much larger than the back rooms and were much wider than they were
long. Interior walls were plastered throughout; this indicates a later renovation.
[New Brunswick in History, William H. Benedict]
In 1742 a movement to build in New Brunswick was under way and a deed from Philip French to a lot on which
the building was going up, dated Dec. 4, 1745, speaks of the building as "in great forwardness." This deed was
to Peter Kemble, Francis Costigan, James Lyne and John Kearney, and was for a lot 150 ft. square. This church
had a lottery in 1758 and obtained a charter in 1759. Its first permanent rector was Rev. William Wood, 1747.
Its lottery was managed by Edward Antill, Bernardus Lagrange, Wm. Mercer, M.D., John Berrian, Samuel Kemble,
William harrison and Peter Kemble.
A second lottery to complete the church, Dec. 4, 1758, ten years later, drawing on July 17, 1759, brings us
a new set of names - Edward Antill, Bernardus Legrange, William Mercer, Samuel Kemble, William Harrison, Francis
Brasier. Edward Antill is probably one of the best-known men connected with Christ Church, and is
referred to elsewhere.
When New Jersey was called on to assist in protecting our border from the French and Indians, who had become an
alarming menace, Gov. John Hamilton, on the recommendation of his Council, Robert H. Morris, Edward Antill, James Hude and
John Coxe, appointed and commissioned Col. Peter Schuyler to command the Regiment of Troops, the first ever raised for
service outside of the State in other Colonies, excepting troops sent to the West Indies in 1739-'40.
Edward Antill, who built Ross Hall, had one son in each army. Stephen Kemble in his "Diary" says: 'Saw his old
schoolmate, Antill, among the prisoners.' He was on one of the prison ships. John and Lewis Antill married Margaret and
Alice Colden, the same family with which Dr. Farquhar and Dr. Auchmuty were connected. Mrs. Antill, her child and her sister,
Miss Colden, obtained permission from the Continental Congress in Philadelphia to proceed from New Brunswick
to New York, after taking an oath to carry no information to the enemy.

Following his battlefield success in late June of 1778 near
Freehold Court House in the Battle of Monmouth,
Washington and the Continental Army returned to New
Brunswick to give the troops rest and relaxation near
the waters of the Raritan River; but also to mark the
now important holiday of the Fourth of July.
Washington, in this visit, stayed with his staff at the
commodious (and elegant) home of the widow Sarah
Ross, wife of a medical doctor who had died three years
previously, situated in a 350-acre farm estate on the
Raritan River in Piscataway, not far from the road to
The house was built in 1739 by Edward Antill, an
importer and gentleman farmer, who was married to
Anne Morris, the daughter of Lewis Morris, royal
governor of New Jersey and lord of the manors of
Morrisana and Tintern (in New York and New Jersey,
respectively), and one of the wealthiest men in the
colonies. The Antill house was a sister structure to the
White house, built the same year by Anthony White,
also a son-in-law of Lewis Morris, married to Morris’
The White house (called Buccleuch by a later owner) still
stands in New Brunswick’s Buccleuch Park. The Antill
house, called Ross Hall by Dr. Ross and his wife, burned
down about 40 years ago, its location today marked only
by a street name, Ross Hall Boulevard.
Part of the house, however, was saved: an
elaborate paneled fireplace wall, with side cabinets, for
which no comparable structure exists at Buccleuch
Mansion. Rutgers history professor Richard P.
McCormick and other university historians, managed to
salvage the wall; and presented it to the New Jersey
Historical Society for display at its museum in Newark.
[Ross Hall, Entwined with Buccleuch, Now Centre of Extensive Development
May 24, 1925, The Sunday Times, New Brunswick NJ]
...Ross Hall has a story which goes back to the days before the Revolution, during which conflict it witnessed many
stirring scenes. At the height of its glory, it had a knee-trousered, brass-buttoned, fox-hunting owner who lived the life of
an English gentleman, driving in a "coach and four" and entertaining the entry for miles around. ...
One goes back then to the time when in 1739 the two doubtless beautiful daughters of Governor Lewis Morris
of the Province of New Jerrsey married two young men of the first families of the vicinity. Elizabeth
married Colonel Anthony White and went to live in a new house on the brow of the hill overlooking the bright waters of
the Raritan, later to be known as Buccleuch. Anne went as a bridge
to the house of Edward Antill almost directly across the river, a home as imposing as that over which her sister presided.
At this time the present Buccleuch was known simply as the White House after its owner. These were pleasant
times but mostly uneventful, nearly thirty years before the Revolution. The lives of the White and Antills in the
rambling, pretentious houses on opposite of the Raritan.
These two families lived the lives of leisurely gentleman farmers, riding about in their coaches and entertaining folk
from roundabout and the distant "towns" of New York and Philadelphia. ...
it is recorded that Anne Morris wedded Edward Antill on June 10, 1789. Antill had built or had immediately
proceeded to build a house on the three hundred and fifty acre tract shortly before
acquired by his father across the river from the present city of New Brunswicks. ...
Records of the Antill family apparently were more carefully kept thatn were those of the Whites, for it is known that the first child of the Antill union
was born in the Antill house - Ross Hall - in 1740.
[Merchants and Gentlemen at Raritan Landing]
EDWARD ANTILL, ESQ.
FROM MY HOUSE on the Road Up Raritan, Raritan Landing looked like New Amsterdam. That's what I called it when I advertised the property for sale in 1753. I had 370 acres, much of it in meadow, but there were also 70 acres of good woodland and 10 acres of orchard in its prime together with a large collection of the best fruit trees: apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, pears, hard and soft-shell almonds, early apples and English cherries. I even had a vineyard of about 600 vines for which I received £200 sterling from the Society for Promoting Arts and Agriculture. I was mainly what you would call a gentleman farmer—after all I was married to Anne Morris, the governor's daughter, and needed to stay above the fray—but we did some brewing on the property. My brewhouse was 60 feet long and 38 feet wide with a new boiler, called a copper, and 22 barrels that were connected to a system for carrying the liquor directly from place to place. My main income came from importing. Unlike the small-time traders in the village, I ordered linens directly from London; John Watts of New York conveyed my orders to Bristol. With other members of my class, I was a charter member of the Church of England in New Brunswick, which finally opened in 1761. I served as a vestryman and am buried in the churchyard.

Edward Antill, the son of the New York merchant, was born in 1699 or 1700, and perhaps came
into the possession of the "Laird of Minnevarre's" broad acres at Raritan landing in Middlesex
county, where he spent most of his life.
Mr. Whitehead refers to him as "an oddity," and
relates an incident to the effect that he once regretted to his wife that the women of
the day spent so much time in idleness or profitless pursuits, instead of
"abiding in the fields with their maidens," gathering flax or grain.
The next morning on coming down to breakfast Mr. Antill found the house deserted,
and no signs of the matutinal repast. His wife had taken him at his word, and
was out in the fields with her handmaidens, pulling flax.
This is only an instance of the serious, earnest view Mr. Antill took of life.
In 1754 he gave 1,800 pounds towards founding Columbia College, in the interest of the
Episcopal Church. He was one of the warmest friends of Christ Church, at New Brunswick,
and in 1769 was one of the trustees of a lottery for the benefit of that church.
When the Rev. Robert McKean, missionary at New Brunswick,
removed in 1703
to Perth Amboy, he reported to the Society (in England) for Propagating the Gospel in Foreign Parts,
that "the Hon Edward Antill, Esq., a man of most exemplary life, and singular piety,
has undertaken to read prayers and a sermon every two Sundays at Brunswick, and every
other two at Piscataqua, till the arrival of a missionary," and the Society voted him their
thanks "for his pious labors."
He was a member of the General Assembly which met at Perth Amboy, October 27, 1738,
in which body he voted to sustain Governor Lewis Morris
[his father-in-law], who was not unnaturally recommended him in 1740 for a seat in the Council.
"He is a man of good Estate & Sence, and if admitted to that board, I hope and believe will
prove an usefull and deserving member of it." He was appointed May 29, 1741, to make a
quorum of the Council, and the appointment was confirmed in 1745.
He was reappointed in 1746, as a member of Governor Belcher's Council.
"Mr. Antill died August 15, 1770, in the 71st year of his age, and was buried
near the southeast corner of Christ Church, New Brunswick.

There is a large and handsome
marble font in the church, on which is inscribed: 'The gift of John Antill, Esq., as a
token of his affection to his native place.' The tradition in the family, however, was,
that this font was presented by his father, the Hon. Edward Antill, as a votive offering,
in consequence of deliverance from imminent danger."
Mr. Antill left three sons - Edward,
John and Lewis.
The latter two, with Margaret Antill and others, had a survey of 20,000 acres returned to them
in 1770 by New York, of lands subsequently declared to be in Vermont, and in 1774
John secured 3,000 acres in western New York, which he sold in 1776 to Robert L. Hooper,
perhaps to avoid confiscation.
Lewis is said to have served in the American army during the Revolution, and
lost his life at Brandywine.
Was he not the Dr. Lewis Antle who visited Judge John Fell when the latter was a prisoner
of the British in New York in 1777?
Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society
EDWARD ANTILL and Some of His Descendants
Edward Antill, 2d, the son of the New York merchant, by his wife Sarah, was born June 17, 1701.
There is a pleasant bit of romance about his childhood, in the fact that he was adopted
and brought up by Giles Shelley, the quondam alleged pirate, who owed his life and
liberty to Edward Antill, 1st, as already related.
By will dated Sept. 22, 1708, proved March 6, 1710, Shelley gave to his loving friends,
Robert Watts and Robert Livingston, merchants, all his messuage, farm, lands and
appurtenances at the Bowery, and the stock, furniture, etc., to hold during the life of
Mary Peters, wife of Charles Peters, in trust, to let her occupy and use the same; at her
decease to be held in trust for Edward Antill, "whom I adopted and bread up having
no children of my own;" he also gives Mary Peters three Indian slaves;
to "loving Aunt Elizabeth Clark of Gravesend in the county of Kent, England," £20 sterling a year
during her life; bequest to John Tudor, jun.; to wife, "twenty shillings and no more."
To said child Edward Antill my two houses and lands in the city of New York and all
other my lands and tenements to him and the heirs of his body."
For want of such heirs, to loving friends Nathaniel Lane and John Lane,
both of Barbadoes, merchants, in fee. Witnesses - A. D. Peyster, Benja. Aske, M. Bickley,
In a codicil, dated Feb. 19, 1710, it is stated that Mary Peters is dead since the will
was made. By this codicil the testator gives to "Loving wife" £150 per annum during life;
to aunt Elizabeth Clark, £20 more a year; to friend William Chambers, £50; to widow Shepherd, £50;
to Anne Antill, daughter of Edward Antill, £150; to "loving wife," £60 in money or
household goods. Witnesses - Lancaster Symes, Step" Thomas, Gilbert Ash, M. Bickley.
When Edward arrived at the age of twenty one years, Robert Watts, one of his trustees and
guardians, then a merchant of the Island of Barbadoes, in the West Indies, delivered
to the young man a true and full account of his estate, and paid him £126, 2s. 9?d.,
the balance due him, whereupon Antill gave him a discharge, dated August 10, 1723,
in which this interesting story of a stranger's generosity, and of a faithful trustee,
is fully set forth.
Among the property which thus came to young Antill was a mortgage given Feb. 9, 1699-1700,
by Michael Hawden, of the city of New York, to Giles Shelly, of the same city,
on "a tract of land on the North Branch of the Raritan river (adjoining John Dalrimple),
containing 912 acres English measure; also 300 acres of upland at Barnegate, beginning
at the north of Manahohaky creek, by the Bay, to secure the payment of £330 of Sevill monies
or Pillar pieces of eight each of seventeen penny weight, on Feb. 9, 1700";
none of the money was paid, and when Antill became of age Shelly's executors assigned
the mortgage to him, as residuary legatee of said Shelly;
Antill assigned the same to Samuel Bayard, Oct. 21, 1732.
Edward Antill, 2d, took up his residence at an early date at Piscataway Landing,
on the Raritan river, on a portion of the broad acres inherited from his father,
and there he spent most of his life. He added a tract, 90x11 chains, on April 7, 1735,
by deed from Andrew Johnston, of Perth Amboy, merchant. In the deed he is described as
of Piscataway, and the land as "in Piscataway on the Raritan river."
He married Catharine, as appears from a power of attorney given by Edward Antill,
of Piscataway, merchant, appointing Catharine his wife attorney to 'enter into his lands,
etc., the four houses within the city of New York only excepted, and to convey the same.
This instrument is dated June 20, 1729. His first wife having died,
he married 2d, Anne Morris, daughter of Governor Lewis Morris, of New Jersey, June 10, 1739;
she was born April 3, I7O6. She survived him.
Mrs. Antill seems to have possessed something of the Governor's whimsical obstinacy
and petulance. Mr. Whitehead says Antill was "an oddity," and as an instance
thereof relates an incident to the effect that he once expressed to his wife
his regret that the women of the day spent so much time in idleness or profitless
pursuits, instead of "abiding in the fields with their maidens," gathering flax or grain.
The next morning on coming down to breakfast Mr. Antill found the house deserted,
and no signs of the matutinal repast. His wife had taken him at his word,
and was out in the fields with her handmaidens, pulling flax.
This is an illustration of the serious view Mr. Antill took of life. He was elected
to the Provincial Assembly in 1738, serving two years, and quite naturally voted
in that body to sustain Gov. Morris, his father-in-law, who on the recommendation
of the Council, appointed him, December 1, 1739, to be one of the Judges of the
Middlesex County Court of Common Pleas. He was destined for still higher honors.
Gov. Morris recommended him in 1740 for a seat in the Council, saying:
"He is a man of good Estate & Sence, and if admitted to that board, I hope and believe
will prove an usefull and deserving member of it."
He was appointed May 25, 1741, to make a quorum of the Conncil, but appears to have been
so indifferent to the honor that he did not take his seat until October 28, 1743.
The appointment was confirmed in 1745."
He was reappointed in 1746, as a member of Gov. Jonathan Belcher's Council,
and again in 1761, in the Council of Gov. Josiah Hardy, but was suspended
by Gov. Thomas Boone a few weeks later, for non-attendance, which suspension
was confirmed by the King in Council, by order dated January 2, 1762.
As a member of the Council he was also commissioned as Justice of the Peace of
Monmouth county, Dec. 17, 1744; of Bergen county, Sept. 26, 1745, and March 28, 1749;
of Middlesex county, Aug. 16, 1746, and March 28,1749; of Salem county, March 30, 1749;
of Morris county, May I3> !749> °f Cumberland county, April 25, 1750; and
Judge of the Middlesex county Oyer and Terminer, Aug. 30, 1746.
He was not only a merchant, but farmed on an extensive scale, having 370 acres and upwards,
40 being in meadow and 1OO in timber, and an orchard of 500 apple trees.
He grew apples for his distillery, and raised trees for the market, offering the latter
for sale in 1750 at "nine Pence per Tree, if chosen; or six Pence per Tree if taken by
the Row, as they stand in the nursery.
His brewhouse, across the river from New Brunswick, was destroyed in a severe storm,
in July, 1752, but was at once rebuilt, 60 feet long and 38 feet wide, with a new copper,
holding twenty-two barrels, with approved appurtenances for making cider, etc.
He offered the whole place for sale in December, 1752, and again in September, 1753.
He advertised in the New York Mercury, March, 1, 1762, for sale "at his Seat near New Brunswick,
in New-Jersey, four or five Yoke of working Cattle, of different Ages, from 8 to
three Years old; they are now fit for Service, being in good Heart, and full Flesh'd,
they are fed upon good Hay and Corn.
The cause of religion and education found in him a valuable supporter.
He gave £1,800 in 1754 towards founding King's (now Columbia) College, in the interest
of the Episcopal Church. His predilection toward literature was evinced even in his
occasional journeys to Trenton, where he put up at the "Sign of Hudibras," a famous tavern, in 1761.
He was one of the warmest friends of Christ Church, New Brunswick, N. J., and in 1759
was one of the trustees of a lottery "for raising 1500 Pieces of Eight to be applied
to the use and finishing" of that church.
When the Rev. Robert McKean, missionary at New Brunswick, removed in 1763 to Perth Amboy,
he reported to the Society (in England) for Propagating the Gospel in Foreign Parts,
under date of December 16, 1763, that
"the Honble Edward Antill, Esq., a man of most exemplary life, and singular piety,
had undertaken to read prayers and a sermon every two Sundays at Brunswick, and
every other two at Piscataqua, till the arrival of a missionary,"
and the Society "Agreed that thanks should be returned to Mr Parker and Mr Antill
for their pious labours.

There is a large and handsome marble font in the [New Brunswick] church, on which is inscribed:
"The gift of John Antill, Esq., as a token of his affection to his native place."
The tradition in the family, however, was, that this font was presented by his father,
the Hon. Edward Antill, as a votive offering, in consequence of deliverance from imminent danger.
In his will, dated October 25, 1768, he describes himself as "late of Piscataqua but
now of Shrewsbury." He names his wife, Anna, sons Edward (the eldest, to whom he had
advanced £300), John and Lewis, and daughters Mary (wife of Richard Cochran),
Sarah and Isabella. He appoints his wife Anne executrix.
By a codicil, dated July 14, 1770, he joins his son Lewis in the executorship, and
speaks of his "beloved wife and six virtuous children."
The will was proved August 24, 1770.1 Mr. Antill died August 15, 1770, and was buried
near the southeast corner of Christ Church, New Brunswick.
In the records of the church is the simple entry:
"The Honble Edward Antill Esqr was interred in X Ch. Yard in N. B. Aug 16, 70."
In the minutes of the Council of Safety, of New Jersey, met at Princeton, Dec. 12, 1777, we read:
"That a flag of Truce from New York had just arrived in Shrewsbury River,
for the families, servants & Effects of Mrs. Antill" and four others.
It was agreed to permit her and the others to pass to New York with their families, etc.
This probably refers to Anne Antill, widow of Edward Antill, 2d,
for the will of Anne Antill, "at present of the city of New York, of sound mind but
old and infirm," is dated March 27, 1778.
It was proved November 20, 1781. She gives to her son Edward land in Bergen county
"left me by the last will of John Corbet Esq." Certain money
"in the hands of Charles Lowndes Esq. given me by the will of my dearest sister
Euphamia Norris," is to be divided equally between:
