    Notes 
    • GARDINER ABRAHAM, father of Dr. Nathaniel, below)--From East Hampton to Saybrook. On Sept. 9, 1776, with seven in his family, and his effects, he was bought over by Capts. Nathaniel Barns , James Harris , David Sayre and Thomas Robinson ; and, in Oct., 1776, other of his effects were brought to Stonington by Capt. David Sayre . He signed the Association, in 1775.

      Although, in 1774, he was a member of the Committee of Correspondence of East Hampton; yet, as a Col. in His Majesty's service, he sought to require the males of the Town to take the Oath of Allegiance to the King. For this, Hon. Henry P. Hedges stated that he should not be unduly blamed; as he afterward was, apparently, loyal to the American cause. In 1775, he was informed by the Fleet of the enemy that it would come again. About 1740-1745, he erected the residence shown in the illustration [omitted], the finest house in the Town at the time. During his absence of about a year, at Saybrook, the house was used as headquarters by Gov. Tryon , Sir William Erskine and Sir Henry Clinton . Officers from the British Fleet in Gardiner's Bay were also billeted there. The house is now occupied by Mr. David Gardiner . [1]
