Land Grant Number
Give a brief description of the inhabitant. The man. The legend. Do we know any significant details about these guys? If yes, great! Include that here. If not, then this can just be ignored.
(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.
