Alexander Todd




Not on L&S map - Tatnall only

Alexander Todd. Origin: Old Family Name.

Alexander Todd received a parcel of land on Long Island of 160 acres that appears to be in the Benzies area of Long Island. His name only appears on the wildly inaccurate Tatnall map, so it is difficult to ascertain its exact location with certainty.

The “Woodes Rogers Census” (1740) shows that a Benjamin Todd had a wife and one negro living with him that year. Other historic records show that a William Todd was married on New Providence on 3 April 1773 and that a Robert Todd was married to Sarah Knowles on Eleuthera prior to 1758. In the absence of other information, we believe Alexander Todd belonged to one of the old families.
