Family Information Kip/Kipp and otherwise

Hello everyone:

I continue to mine Ancestry.com, World Connect and other online sources for information on the descendants of the Kip/Kipp families of New Amsterdam. If it was not for the online genealogy sites, I would not be able to do this. The shaky leaf hints on Ancestry are very helpful.

If you spot any inconsistencies, errors or items that need correction, etc. please let me know. The information is not cast in stone and I do make mistakes.

Also note that I may very well repeat information on certain families. I do not check back to see if I have done that family.

The Kip/Kipp information can be found on World Connect (database - edwkipp8).

Letter from Henry Motz to Land Boards concerning Indian purchases and cessions.

Copy

[P.1]
Quebec 21st January 1790

Gentlemen
I am commanded by Lord Dorchester to acknowledge the receipt of Your Report of the 17th of October, and to signify to You, that a strong desire of exercising the high equity, liberality, and good faith towards the Indians, as well as the white people, which it is the duty of every servant of the Crown never to depart from, for the honour and dignity of the King’s government, was the leading principle of the restrictions contained in His Lordship’s Instructions to you of the 2nd of September, but that His confidence in Your judgement & integrity, will always incline Him to hold You justified in the prudent exercise of such discretionary authority, as, on account of the remoteness of the district, it may be
necessary

[In the margin]
To Major Murray 60th Regt or
Officer Commanding at Detroit
William Dummer Powell Esqr
& The other Commissioners of
The Land Board for the District
of Hesse

[P.2]
necessary for the Board to assume, for a more perfect discharge of their trust, under unforeseen circumstances, taking for granted, that a religious adherence to the same principle, which actuates His Lordship will be maintained by the Board, in all such cases.

Confined to the information hitherto obtained His Lordship perceives no ground to support that there is any pretence of equitable claims within any other Indian purchases or cessions, than that of June 1784, and consequently, that You will find scope for Your trust to operate in every other part of the district.  You will therefore be very particular in Your minutes if You shall see cause in the exercise of Your discretion to give hopes to persons that indulge expectations under such Indian Grants, as were not made agreeable to the Royal Instructions, nor have yet had the countenance or approbation of the government.

Wm McKees Memorial for a tract ceded by the Indians to the Crown, on the 15th of May 1786, with the deed left herein his behalf, is inclosed for the consideration and proceeding of the Board, agreeable to their general instructions.

I am Gentlemen
Your most obedient
humble servant
(signed) Henry Motz

Colonel By Day, Ottawa, Ontario. August 5, 2013

Colonel By Day, Ottawa, Ontario. August 5, 2013

The day turned out to be a great day for this celebration. The weather cooperated with no rain. It was sunny mostly with a little breeze coming off the Ottawa River and funneling up the Rideau Canal entrance locks in Ottawa.

 Elizabeth and I along with Kyla and Mike looked after the Ottawa Branch Ontario Genealogical Society table for the day. We talked to a number of people during the day. There were a lot of people passing by but the traffic in the Exhibition tent seemed to be lighter than usual.

Three of us, Elizabeth, Edward and Kyla dressed up in costumes representing different time periods. I know that I did attract a little attention, as a number of people asked to take my photograph. Kyla had a demonstration of book binding and even made it on the CTV news that evening for about 5 to 10 seconds.


 The one group that did attract attention was the 78th Fraser Highlanders Fort Glen Garrison. This is a re-enactment group staffed by students. They had a great drum and fife band and presented mini concerts throughout the day. There were many people dressed in costume wandering around during the day. There was the annual celebration at the Irish Workers Memorial cross beside the canal.


To find out more about Colonel John By do a goggle search and look at the Wikipedia article.
