Charles Louis Northrup's Lineage

The ancient history of the distinguished surname Northrup has appeared in the chronicles of England showing the early records of the name Northrup to be derived from the Norman race. The name appears from about 1066 A.D. and its history is interwoven within the majestic tapestry which contains the history of Britain.

Researched, verified, and checked by Dr.Charles Northrup. Credit is given to Ernest G. C. Graham, the author of "Genealogy of NORTHRUPS, BARTERS and BENSONS of Springfield, N. B." without whose work and diligence the following information may have been lost.

Christian Joseph Northrup of Yorkshire, England, came to Milford, Connecticut in the early 1600s, and seems to have been the originator of the Kings County, Canada Loyalist family of Northrup,and he was one of the original founders of Milford, Connecticut. Here is Joseph Northrup's founder stone.
By the time the Revolution started in 1776, the descendants of Christian Joseph Northrup had spread over the state of Connecticut and beyond.
Benajah Northrup who was the fifth generation was loyal to the King of England and during the war served in the "Guides and Pioneers" as a volunteer. The story handed down in the Northrup family is that there were three branches of this family who left the US and came to Canada as Loyalists.

One branch to what is now Nova Scotia. One branch to Upper Canada, settling at or near Brockville. And Benajah Northrup and his family came to what is now New Brunswick in 1783. They went up the St. John River above Sheffield or Lower Maugerville, but the high freshet of spring of 1784 flooded them out.
He then moved to Kingston on Portage Cove, also referred to as Bellisle Creek, BUT now called Kingston Creek, and was granted lot #6.
This lot must have been abandoned by some earlier settler, as #6 was in Hauser's first survey in 1783 and at that time was alloted to somebody else.
Two (2) of Benajah's children, a boy and a girl, were lost by this family during this period of upheaval. The girl, Mary, died most likely when they were at Long Island refugee camps. The boy, William, 1st, who was born on the St. John River in 1783, died at Kingston in 1784 when just over a year old.
Benajah Northrup died May 17,1838 at the age of 87 leaving fourteen childen, 118 grandchildren, and 111 great-grandchildren. All of the 14 children were with his 1st wife (Sarah Keeler).

There is no record to substantiate the Northrup story that one branch went to Nova Scotia and one to Upper Canada, but as some of the Kingston "Northrups" did in later years go to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, it may have been from these travelers that they think that another Loyalist branch did exist in Nova Scotia.

Zadok Northrup, first son of Benajah Northrup, who was born in Connecticut, USA, Feb.4,1775, came to Kingston, New Brunswick with the Loyalists and about 1796 he took up land in the Bull Moose Hill grants. This became lot #6 (now J.K.Graham's place).

Zadok lived all of his days on his grant lot #6, Bull Moose Hill. He held seat #4 in Trinity Church, Kingston (a gallery seat, May 24,1797). His seat in Trinity Church, Springfield (1823) was #7 south side.

Zadok's wife, who was Charlotte Worden, seems to have been the daughter of Jarvis Worden (ferry operator and hotel keeper at what is now called Evandale). Zadok and Charlotte were both lving in the time of the 1851 census (then 76 and 70 years of age), and listed as Loyalists.


Jarvis Thomas Northrup, Zadok's oldest son, homesteaded the back 80 acres of his father's grant. This farm was passed on to Jarvis' son James William and from him to Ernest Walter Northrup. On Walter's death in 1946 it became an estate.

Abraham and James (two of Jarvis' other sons) were known as Abraham Jarvis and James Jarvis (or (Jim) Rock Maple).


Gabriel W.P. Northrup, Zadok's second son, had at first 40 acres of Jarvis' place about the time he got married. His father (Zadok) deeded him the front 40 acres next to the Belleisle lots. Here they built a house and barn but Gabriel became such a bad fellow the rest of the Northrups collected some money and sent him out of the country (no other explanation is given on this story). Some said "He went by boat".


Elijah Pelham Northrup (Zadok's 3rd son) was lumbering in Maine in 1836, which gives us the family life of this Northrup boy about two years before his marriage and then he settled down in Belleisle as a shoemaker.
Stephen Joshua Northrup (Elijah's 3rd son) changed his name to Northorp, and married Emmeline Harris Crowe. Stephen diedin approximately 1900 in Marysville, New Brunswick. His 11th. child George Washington Northorp did move to Vancouver around 1904 . Emmeline moved to Vancouver in 1908 with her 9th. child Mabel Pearl Lyons & her son in-law John Lyons.She died at age of 81in 1933.
