- "Lists of Inhabitants of Colonial New York" by Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan Jeremiah Conchling assessed property value 193 pounds 10 shillings August 24, 1675. From Conkling Family: Lion Gardiner owned 9 1/2 acres before 1663 between what is now James Lane and Hook Pond. The house owned by Winthrop Gardiner in 1973 was built for Jeremiah and Mary by Lion. Lion gave no dowry for them other than the house. On Dec 2, 1664, Andrew Miller sold his house and land in East Hampton to Jeremiah. It was possibly next door to the other house.
Andrew took only the window.
Lion left his estate to his widow, his daughter Mary and his granddaughter Elizabeth Howell. Lion's son David was disinherited because of his irresponsible behavior. Mary received the house in East Hampton with all the housing and half the stock. Jeremiah was entrusted to protect Elizabeth's holdings. In 1665, Mary Gardiner died and left the island to David; under Lion's will, it would have gone to the eldest son of Mary and Jeremiah.
Jeremiah was mentioned in various East Hampton Town records. "Her husband appears to have been prominent in town and church affairs; accumulated property and settled lands upon his children in his lifetime. 'These three parcels of land...I, Jeremyah Conkling, Senior do hereby give to my sons Jeremyah and Cornelyus and my daughter Mary Mulford, wife of Thomas Mulford, to them, their heirs and assigns forever, to be equally divided between them." ...'Unto my son Cornelius, and my son-in-law Thomas Mulford...one parcel of land containing six acres...ten acres and a half more... also eleven actes... to be divided equally between them' On Sep 8, 1863 his property was rated by the town estimates: "Heads 3, land 38, oxen 4, cattle 31, horses 2, swine 4, sheep 35, estate 247 pounds 3 s 4d.' At another time his settled divisions of land upon his sons David and Lewis for 'good affection', 5 1/2 acres and 16 poles each.
In 1695 Jeremiah was supposed to have built a house in Amagansett which was to become the first post office - but this may have been his son. Another EHTR "Also a certain parcel of low meadow adjoining the calf pasture, by virtue of a town grant made to Lion Gardiner, deceased, to the said David and Lewis Conkling, equally - after the Rev. Mr. Nathaniel Huntting shall cease performing the ministry in E. H. " ... Jeremiah Conkling, Senior, "sweaped ye meeting house yearly, for a period of nearly thirty years, for which the town paid him about 1 pound 7s 6d a year." "He died 14 March, 1712-13 ae. 78, about 9 in ye evening." "On October 8, 1714, his widow by deed, signed her mark, confirmed the will of her late husband, which settled upon her sons Jeremiah, Cornelius, Davis, Lewis, and Ananias, all lands and priviledges within the bounds of East Hampton, that did formerly belong to her father, Lion Gardiner, of the Isle of Wight."
