General Notes: The following information is an excerpt from "The Settlement of Philipsburgh" by Mackenzie, which appears on Lisa Shea's web site:

"Deliverance Conklin son of John and Helena, born in Rye probably about 1670, moved to New York where he married Engeltje sister of Jan Buckhout and about 1697 settled in Philipsburgh, probably on the lower part of the Pocantico River on the leasehold bought from the Commisioners of Forfeitures by his great grandsons Isaac and Jacob."

The Old Dutch Reformed Church of Tarrytown, Westchester County, NY does show the following entry in the Member Register (1697 - 1778):

"Aug. 21, 1717
#117. Deleverins Cankely, and
#118. Engeltie, his wife"

Deliverance & Engeltje appear as witnesses to the baptism of their granddaughter, Leena Ecker, daughter of Steven Ecker & Engeltje Conklin, on Oct. 10, 1736 at the Tappan Reformed Church, Rockland Co., NY.

Engeltje was bp. NYC Mar 11, 1678, dau of Matthys Boeckhout & wife Elizabeth Ellsworth (dau of Theophilus)

Honor Conklin and her research associates have determined that Deliverance and his siblings were not the children of John Conklin of Southold and Huntington. Honor's research contributions are staggering, and her careful fingertips can be found on almost all the Conklin information. She is an absolute blessing to genealogical research.

Honor Conklin's on Name Correction

This is another correction in the NYGB Record for the error in their New Amsterdam Dutch Reform Church records that records the name of Deliverance Conklin as Delivery Stantley:

New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, V. XLV, N. 4, Oct. 1914, p. 394

On page 80 of Vol. I of the Collections of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society appears the marriage of Delivery Stantley, a young man of Rhye, to Enjeltje Boeckhout of New York, on Oct. 2, 1695. Their eldest child was baptized Oct. 28, 1696 (Vol. II, 239). There the father's name is spelled Deliverance Canckten. Other children were baptized at Tarrytown, N.Y. between 1700 and 1716. In the Records of the Speelpy Hollow Church, the father's name suffers other changes, viz: Leverens Canckele, Canckle, Kankle, Cancely and finally Delefferins Cancklie, the wife in each instance remaining the same. The present method of spelling the name is Conklin. H.S. Mott, 226 W. 58th Street"


Post of Feb 13, 2001:

Delivery Stantley actually Delivery Kankelin, ie Deliverance Conklin.

Randolph, Howard. "The Ellsworth Family of New York City..." NYG&BR, V. 64, N. 2, 1933, p. 160 footnote:

"In the marriage record as printed, his name is given as 'Delivery Stantley of Rhye' but this is in error. A careful reading of the original shows it should be 'Delivery Kankelin' - Deliverance Conklin."

Families Living in Philipsburg in 1698

Posted 10 Feb 2012 by Laceroseayla


During the first years of the settlement, the growth of the community was slow. At the time of the organization of the church in 1697, there were probably not more than seventy five persons of all ages living in Philipsburgh. * The next few years showed a more rapid growth, a number of families having settled here around or just before 1700. In 1712 the population was 309 and 39 salves. **

* The statement of Governor Bellmont that there were only "twenty poor families" in Philipse Manor in 1698, is an understatement. There were nearly forty. Nineteen families are on record as living in Philipsburg at that date:- Lourens Matthys Bankers (7), Deliverance Conklin (4), David Davids (3), Barent de Witt (5), Abraham de Revier (3), Wolfert Ecker (5), Jan Ecker 94), John Foseur (4), Francois Guiliamse (6), Jan Harmse (3), John Hyatt (7), Thomas Hyatt (2), David Storm (4), Peter Storm (3), Isaac Sie (5), Peter Sie (2), Jochem Woutersz Van Wert (6), Gerret Van Wert (5) and Robert Williams (5). The number in parentheses are the number of persons in each family as determined from church and other records, totaling 83. A few other families who were definitely here shortly after 1698 may have come before that date. The census of 1698 lists twenty one families living in Yonkers, Lower Yonkers.

**Census record:- 7 men and 7 women over sixty, 62 men and 61 women between sixteen and sixty and 86 boys and 86 girls.

The settlement before 1700 would seem to have been confined to the shore of the Hudson except for the See family at Nanegeeken, now Thornwood, and David Storm at East View. The earliest Dutch, Huguenor and Walloon families were located chiefly in the vicinity of Tarrytown and Irvington, with a few to the north of Tarrytown.


Deliverance Conklin son of John and Helena, born in Rye probably about 1670, moved to New York where he married Engeltje sister of Jan Buckhout and about 1697 settled in Philipsburgh, probably on the lower part of the pocantico River on the leasehold bought from the Commissioners of Forfeitures by his great grandsons Isaac and Jacob.

Deliverance Conklin PDF

Deliverance moved to NYC where he married in RDC on 2 Sep 1694 Engeltje Buckhout/Boeckhout, daughter of Matthys Janszen Boeckhout and Elizabeth Ellsworth of Lower Yonkers and Sleepy Hollow NY.

Jan Boeckhout came from Leyden to New Amsterdam 1662 on the "De Purmerlander Kercke" with wife Hannah and five children. His son Matthys settled in Philipsburgh and was a member of the Philipsburgh Church.

The Elsworth Family of New York City. NYG&B Record V. 64, N. 2, 1933, p.160. About 1697 Deliverance and Engeltje moved to Philipsburgh Manor, NY, on the lower part of the Pocantico River where he was a tenant farmer.

Children's baptismal dates (see above) from Marriage and Baptismal Registers, RDC Church, Philipsburg, Tarrytown NY

The American Genealogist, No. 103, Vol XXVI, No.3, July 1950, John Concklin of Rye, Conklin Mann, p138
6. Deliverance2 Concklin (John1} was born in Rye, N.Y. (then in connecticut), according to his statement made at the time of his marriage. The date probably was about 1672. On 2 Oct. 1695, he married [New York Dutch Church], Engeltje [Angelica] Boeckhout, baptized 11 Mar. 1678 [[New York Dutch Church], daughter of Matthias Janszen Boeckhout of New York, Lower Yonkers and Sleepy Hollow. Her father was that "Capt. Matthias Boeckhout who sailed a coaster," and her mother, Elizabeth, daughter of Theophilus Ellsworth. [See Ellsworth Family, New York Gen. and Biog. Record, vol. 64.] The marriage took place while the Boeckhouts were in Lower Yonkers, and it seems probable that Deliverance was in residence there or with his brother John in Fordham.

After his marriage, he evidently lived in New York for a few years. About 1700, Deliverance removed to the Sleepy Hollow section of Philipsburgh. He and his wife joined the church there 21 Aug. 1717, and are Nos. 117 and 118 on the roll. He was elected a deacon in August 1718 and again in 1724 and an elder in 1735. In 1718 he was an assessor of Philipsburgh. The date of his death has not been found, but several manuscript genealogies state that he died about 1752. He and his wife Engeltje appear many times as sponsors at Sleepy Hollow baptims, the last on 29 Nov. 1736, when they were sponsors for their grandson Deliverance, child of Abraham3 and Maritje (Brouwer) Concklin.

Children of Deliverance2 Concklin and Engeltje Broeckhout (all but the first two baptized at Sleepy Hollow and parentage given):

                Stephen Ecker, b. Philipsburgh, son of Wolfert Ecker.  Note: in
                printed records of the Sleepy Hollow Church, the marriage 
                immediately following that of Stephen Ecker and Engeltie Concklin 
                is given as that of Jan Willemse and a second Engeltje Concklin
                on 29 May 1725.  The Burhans copy of the same records (N.Y.
                Gen. and Biog. Soc. Library) gives the marriage as that of
                Jan Willemse and Sara Smit, a statement proved correct by the
                baptism of Jan Willemse's first child, Rissert, on 2 Apr. 1726,
                parents Jan Willemse and Sara, and by parentage of children
                baptized later.

                b. White Plains, both living in White Plains, she b. Philipsburgh.
                The name Strefus also appears as Trabus, Treefus, Triffus, and 
                probably is Trairs.
38    ix.  Abraham, bp. 25 Mar. 1712; sponsors, Abraham Van Dyck and

ENGLETJE BOECKHOUT WIFE OF DELIVERANCE CONKLIN (a.k.a. Canckten, Canckele, etc. and Stantley).

She was bpt. 11 March 1678 NY RDC.

Her parents - Matthys Janszen (Boeckhout) and Lysbeth (Elizabeth) Elswaerts

(Ellsworth) were betrothed 16 May 1675 and married 9 June 1675. NY RDC Marriages - Matthys Janszen, j. m. Van Leyden, en Lysbeth Elswaerts, j. d.

Van N. Yorke, beyde wonende alhier. 9 Jun.

Her father was the son of Jan Boeckhout of North-Rhine Westphalia and was baptized MATTIS in the Lutheran Church, Leiden, Netherlands, 10 January 1649 as the s/o Jan Boekholt. Her father went by the patronymic Jansen (Janszen, Janzen) for years before adopting the surname of Boeckhout (and variants).

Jan Boeckhout came to New Netherland in 1663 with his wife Hannah (unknown maiden name and unknown origin - possibly Westphalian, perhaps Dutch) and five children. Mattis (Mathias, Matthys, etc) was the eldest child.

Engletje Boeckhout's mother was born in New York while her father Theophilus (Christofel, Stoffel) Ellsworth (Elswaerts) was born in Canbridgeshire, England. Her father immigrated to Amsterdam by 1647 where he married Annetje Jans of Amsterdam. Netherlands. Theophilus Ellsworth and his wife Annetje Jans came to New Netherland c1650.

NY RDC baptisms - 10 Jan 1655: Lysbeth d/o Stoffel Elswaerts; Witness Lysbeth Twillarts

Based on this info it may be concluded that the wife of Deliverance Conklin was a mixture of New Netherland Dutch consisting on one part Dutch, one part English, one part German and of an unknown fourth part possibly German

(Westphalian) or perhaps Dutch. Earlier ancestors might well add to the already mixed heritage.
