Hugh Kelly




(100 acres, 11 Sept 1789) Not on L&S map - Tatnall only

Hugh Kelly. Origin: Old Family Name.

Hugh Kelly received a grant for 100 acres of land in Roses on Long Island 11 September 1789. He was given a waiver of quit rent for two years—eight years less than he would have received had he been a Loyalist. A Robert Robertson Kelly was born on New Providence on 13 January 1768, though we cannot tie Robert to Hugh. Also, a Faith Kelly, an Old Inhabitant, received a grant of 78 acres in what is now the Cartwright area of Long Island on 9 October 1790. Hugh is only listed on the Tatnall map.
