Thomas Longworth, Elizabeth Rogers, & Mary Ball (Bruen)

Sally’s five-great-Grandparents:

Thomas Longworth 1718 – 1790 | his parents
& ca 1743 Elizabeth Rogers ca 1711 – 1758/64 | her parents
& ca 1764 Mary Ball [Bruen] 1726 – 1817 | her parents
of Essex County, New Jersey


This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!


1718 – born Thomas Longworth, son of Thomas Longworth (1691-1748) and Dorcas ___
1743 or there about – Thomas Longworth married Elizabeth Rogers.
Elizabeth Rogers, daughter of John Rogers (died 1715/6) and Elizabeth ________, was born in Essex Co NJ.
She had died before 1765.

1756 – Thomas Longworth, cordwainer of Newark NJ, advertised in the New York Mercury in 1756 that his apprentice, Job Taylor, had run away to serve on the privateer Prince George.

After Elizabeth’s presumed death,
(aft Sept 1758/by 1765) Thomas Longworth had married 2nd Mary Bruen.
Mary was born 4 June 1726
the daughter of Thomas Ball (who died 30 Oct 1744 age 47 in Newark, NJ) and his wife Sarah Davis.

Mary Ball first married to John Bruen, a sailor, who was lost off Newfoundland 24 Sept 1758.

1778 – Thomas was “the king’s regent” in Newark
and, when the American Revolution came, stayed loyal to the King.
He was reported “a fugitive now with the enemy” Dec 8, 1778.

His estate was confiscated, valued at 2,230 pounds.
Mary was his wife when they were deported from Newark.
Thomas was a leading member of Trinity Church, Newark.
Thomas returned to Newark after the war “and lived out his life in poverty.”
1790 – Thomas died July 23rd, 1790 , aged 72 years. [or 28 July]
1817 – Mary Ball Bruen Longworth died 7 July 1817 in Essex County, NJ.

New York Gazette and Weekly Mercury, July 7, 1777
A Specimen of Rebel Humanity, experienced at Newark in New Jersey by the wives of Thomas Longworth, Isaac Longworth, Uzal Ward, and some others whose Husbands left that Place last January and took Refuge in this City. The Committee of Newark ordered the Wood to be cut off their Land, their Grass and Hay to be destroyed and their Persons insulted and they were not permitted to remain in the Province longer than Thursday the 26th ult. when Guards were placed round their Houses and their Effects secured by Order of their titular Governor William Livingston: to expostulate was needless as the Guards told the Women if they refused to obey, Violence would be used. The cries of Mothers, Children, and Slaves obliged to leave their Homes for differing in Sentiment from their Neighbors would have excited pity in the Breast of any but Savages. The Mandate must be obeyed. The Wife of Mr. Thomas Longworth having two young Children to take Care of was favored with a Straw Bed. They all arrived here last Sunday Week.

James Black 1740 – 1780
& 1762 Rachel Adams 1743 – 1787
of Scotland and Virginia and
Beaufort District SC


James Black and Rachel Adams were married on 13 Nov 1762 in Christ Church, Philadelphia, PA.

Rachel Adams was born 8 Sept 1743 in Philadelphia PA the daughter of William Adams and wife Rachel Townsend? and died on 20 Aug 1787 in Beaufort District, SC at age 43.

James Black was born 14 Mar 1740 in Scotland and died Aug 1780 in Beaufort District SC at age 40.

“James Black was a Scotsman and did settle in Virginia first,
he and Rachel were married in Philadelphia PA in 1762.
James served in the Virginia Militia apparently until 1766
and records of him in Beaufort SC date back to 1772.
Once in Beaufort, James involved himself in the thriving local shipbuilding industry
and ultimately became one of the more prominent shipbuilders just prior to the Revolutionary War.
During the war he served with the Beaufort Militia, but exactly when he died is unclear. Accounts of an incident about the time of the Battle of Stono Ferry in June 1779
indicates he was killed by a British night raid while serving guard duty.
However Lester in “Old Southern Bible Records” indicates he died 20 Aug 1780.
He was buried at the St Helena Episocopal Church Cemetery in Beaufort District SC.”

17 July 2010 Hi Sally, My father’s aunt, Mary Morgan Nichols, married Joseph Longworth Nichols. When she died my father inherited a large mirror that once hung in her house in Saranac, one of her tall case clocks (believed to have once belonged to Alice Roosevelt Longworth).
On the chance that you’re interested in adding a link to your family tree, Mary Morgan’s ancestry is amply covered in a chart done by Jon Morris of Baltimore.
Is there any chance that you might have a sense of whether my clock might really have connections to Alice Roosevelt Longworth???
