ANNALS OF OLEY VALLEY The Deturck Family
The name DETURCK (DETURK) is indelibly stamped upon Oley Valley genealogy. For considerably over 200 years there never was a time when some dwellers of this name were not spoken to and about by other Oley citizens as "neighbors". The members of the family seem to the manor born. They have proven themselves good citizens and so by God's good providence the stock has not died out, nor is it in immediate danger as far as that is concerned. The American progenitor, Isaac DETURCK, was another of the Huguenot fugitives to America, who left their native land because of religious persecution. He hailed from Picardy, France, lived temporarily in the Frackenthal of the Palatinate, and came across the waters with Rev Joshua KOCHERTHAL's followers, which were favored by Queen Anne, of England, and in 1708 transported to her colony on the Hudson. There were about 30 or 35 people under the spiritual guidance of Pastor KOCHERTHAL, who first settled on Quassack Creek, at what is now Newburgh on the Hudson. Some soon went farther north to Esopus, where there was gathering a nucleus settlement of Huguenots. Among these colonists was a widow of 37 years of age, with an only daughter of 2 years. The widow was Mrs Marie WEIMER, nee DEHERO- KEN (HARCOURT), a descendant of French nobles. After a sojourn in the Palatinate for some years, marriage and the death of her husband, she accepted Queen Anne's offer, and with her child, Catharine, joined the emigrants for America. After landing in New York and temporary settlement on the Hudson, she was wooed and married by Isaac DETURCK, a fellow countryman and Huguenot, her junior by more than a decade of years. Two children were born to them in their new home. The baptismal certificate of the younger child, in French, is still preserved, and we are enabled to here reproduce it through the kindness of Chester L DETURCK, of Oley, as follows:

"Baterne amourd huy dimanche 29 C.D. April, 1712. Monsieur Louis ROU Ministere Batise Esther Le TURQUE Nee C 30 c.d. Aoust dernier fille de Isaac le TURQUE et Maria sa femme, presente an St Bateme par Francois LUCAS et la mere dudit enfan perein et Marienne L ROU, Pasteur".

COME TO PENNSYLVANIA. The DeTURCKs heard of the offers of good and cheap land in William PENN's province, and in 1712 took courage and journeyed for this new "land of promise". Here they took up a tract of 300 acres in the very heart of Oley, being one of the very first pioneers of this new country. Only John KEIM and perhaps one or two other families, had preceded him as settlers of this region. Here his family grew up and here the children were married and reared families. In 1721, Isaac DETURCK added another large tract, which upon marriage became the home of his daughter Esther (married to Abraham BER- TOLET, and since one of the BERTOLET estate), while his son, John, retained the old historic home. It has never to this day gone out of the DETURCK name or possession. The present owner is Or Martin D DETURCK, of Friedensberg. The adjoining farm, a part of the original tract, belongs to Dr Daniel H DETURCK. The step-daughter grew up in the family and in marriageable womanhood became the wife of Abraham LEVAN, another Huguenot settler of Oley. Isaac DETURCK died in 1721, aged 36 years, and was buried in the private cemetery on the farm, where he lies, in an unmarked, unlettered tomb. Abraham DETURCK, a descendant, has left us this statement, dated March, 1844:

"Meine Voraeltern,Namens Isaac DETURCK, wohnten in Frankreich waren Von den sogenannten Huguenoten, fluechteten wegen Religion nach der Pfalz in die Stadt Franckenthal; Von dorten wandente sie aus nach America, liessen sich nieder im Staat New York, in der Gegend Esopus, in der Zeit der Koenigen Anna; zogen Von da nach Oley Zwischen 1709 and 1712. Das Patent Von meinem Land ist 1712". This translated, reads as follows:

"My ancestors, by the name of Isaac DETURCK, lived in France and belonged to the so-called Huguenots, whence they fled, on account of their religion, to the Palatinate, residing in the city of Frankenthal. From thence they journeyed to America and settled in the State of New York in the region of Esopus during the reign of Queen Anne. From there they moved to Oley between 1709 and 1712. My land was patented in 1712".
OTHERS COME. The settlement by the DeTURCKs in Oley so early doubtless brought on other Huguenot fugitives from Switzerland and Germany. We have the correspondence from Oley of Mrs DETURCK, as early as 1718, writing to her relatives still in Germany, and at least one sister's family (Mrs Jean BERTO- LET) was induced to follow them in a few years thereafter. Oley was becoming to be a spiritual, as well as natural Eldorado for the Huguenots of France. Here they founded a community of earnest religious folk, at first doubtless adhering to their Calvinistic doctrines very probably conducting religious services in their houses and possibly still clinging to their French language or dialect. If so, then they repeated the Lord's Prayer as follows, as found copied in one of their French Bibles now highly treasured by the descendants:

"Nostre pere, qui es es cieux! Yon Nam soit sanctifie. Tou regne vienne! To volonte soit faite ainsi en la terre comme au ciel! Donne, nous aujourd hui nostre Pdin quotidieni Et nous quitte nos debtes, comme aussi nous quitons a nos deteurs les heurs! Et ne nos indui point en tentation, mais delivre nos du malin! Car a toi est le regne et la puissance et la glorie a jamais! Amen!"

FLOOD OF NEW SETTLERS. But the French tongue gradually disappeared amid the English, which the Quakers about them used, and especially was it given up finally for the German, which the flood of new immigrants and settlers was bringing to Oley. When the Moravian missionaries came to do their evangelizing work among these early settlers, and the remnant of Indians still lingering in camps by the neighboring streams, John, the son of Isaac DETURCK, opened his house and barn to them for worship, though his mother had been an ardent espouser of the Baumannites, the sect of the New Born. The Moravian missionary and pastor of Oley was Andrew ESHENBACH, who had marvelous success in awakening the community and winning followers to his new and warm and earnest gospel. He had labored at Esopus before and doubtless knew the older DeTURCKs, and so the work of teaching and evangelizing centered at the house of John DETURCK, who was the only son of Isaac, the American progenitor.

This old DETURCK homestead is located a little to the southwest of Friedensberg, on Kaufmans Creek. The farm first consisted of hundreds of acres of the richest Oley land. The property is noted for two things, besides being the ancestral home of the DeTURCK's, which give it historical significance:

It is the place where was held in February, 1742, by Count ZINZENDORF and his colaborers, the third of seven conferences, calculated to result in the formation of ecclesiastical union among all German denominations then active in Pennsylvania: The Moravians, Seventh Day Baptists, Dunkards, Mennonites, Separatists, Lutherans, and Reformed. It was known as the Pennsylvania Synod.

The other was the establishment here of a Moravian school that was widely known and flourished for a little while.

IGNOMINIOUS FAILURE. As far as this conference was concerned, we have previously devoted a whole chapter to it, and so will only add here that, despite the zealous endeavor and diplomatic planning of Count ZINZENDORF to weld together into a homogenous whole these elements of faith and practice in the divided German religious folk of Pennsylvania, he ignominiously failed.

But because of it the Moravian Church of Oley was doubtless strengthened by this Conference of 1742. John DeTURCK's homestead became the center of their meeting. Until a larger edifice was erected the house and barn were used as a religious gathering place. The Moravians had gained such a hold upon the community by the missionary work done by their zealous pastors, stimulated by this large gathering of religious leaders and solemnites connected with the ordination and baptismal services conducted here, that Mr DETURCK offered to donate sufficient land for the erection of a house of worship and two others for school and dormitory purposes, and a burial ground, should the congregation, aided by the brethren at Bethlehem and elsewhere, proceed with the project of erecting here a Moravian Church and Boarding School. It was accepted and soon accomplished. Between 1742 and 1745, three log buildings were put up. The cause flourished for a number of years. The school house is the only one that is still preserved. It flourished as a widely patronized boarding school and church for some time, having been completed in 1745. It drew students from as far as Maryland and beyond. In 1746 there were 38 students from widely scattered places.

We visited this place during the spring of 1902, and then wrote the following description:

"The house has four rooms on each floor, besides a wide hall across the building. One of the rooms on the first floor seems to have been used for a kitchen on account of it having a large fireplace. One of the queer things noticeable is that the other rooms do not have any signs of being heated in any way. In the hall on the second floor there is an open fireplace on opposite sides in the large chimney, but none in the rooms. The same holds true on the first floor. If the surrounding rooms were to be heated from this fireplace through the doors entering the hall, I am sure there were some chilly days for scholars in those times. This third building, completed about 1745, was long used for a church and three years as a boarding school".

GROWTH OF OTHER CONGREGATIONS. With the decline of the Moravian Church in Oley, the Lutheran and German Reformed began to grow into prominence; the New- Born were dying out and losing prestige; the Quakers held their English followers exclusively, while many of the descendants of the Huguenots and Moravians were gathered with other German settlers, into the Lutheran and Reformed folds. Imposing edifices were erected and large congregations organized. It is into these and the churches of the Evangelical Association, the followers of Jacob ALBRIGHT, after 1800, that the church-going folk of Oley have been mostly gathered ever since the first half century of Oley settlements. Today the two for- mer have a strength none of the three earlier denominations ever attained.

It would require a volume to enumerate all descendants of the first pioneer DETURCK. It may be said in general, however, that the DeTURCKs have branched out considerably, married into many of the best families of the county, and settled in distant parts, but have always kept a goodly sprinkling of the old stock in the township to maintain the home fires of Oley burning. They have figured in many an honorable enterprise at home and abroad, though in Oley agriculture has been the principal pursuit. Besides cultivating their original broad acres, in the later generations they have acquired and farmed the old Squire BOONE plantation.

The DETURCK family for three generations of the Oley line is as follows:

EARLY GENERATIONS. 1. Isaac DETURCK (1686-1721) married Mrs Maria HEROKEN (HARCOURT) WEIMER (a widow)

II. 1. Catharine (WEIMERI a stepdaughter of Isaac DETURCK, married Abraham
LEVAN.
2. John DETURCK, married May 13, 1740, Deborah HOCH. At their home the third Oley Conference met, February 10, 11, 12, 1742, called by Count ZINZENDORF, to unite all German denominations into a congregation of the spirit. Here three Indians were baptized and four men ordained to Moravian ministry.
3. Esther DETURCK married Abraham BERTOLET.
III. The children of John and Deborah (HOCH) DETURCK were as follows:
1. Isaac, born 1741, died young.
2. Daniel, born 1742, married Catharine LEVAN, whose offspring married BRIEL, SHIREY, HEFFNER, HUEBNER.
3. Susanna, born 1745, married ----- SCHAEFFER, of Tulpehocken.
4. John, born 1747, married Elizabeth BERTOLET, whose children were John, Abraham, Daniel, Elizabeth, of whom John married a Miss BOWER and had children Isaac (m. Miss MOLL), Samuel (m. Miss ALTHOUSE), Elizabeth (m. Samuel BLATT).
5. Maria, born 1748 married Daniel WEISER.
6. Samuel, born 1751, married Catharine CREST (KERST) and their children were George, John, Samuel, Jacob, and Deborah, of whom Jacob married Esther GOODHART and had a family of nine children.
7. Abraham, born 1752, married Anna WEISER. They had children, Abraham, Isaac, Catharine, Hannah, of whom Abraham married Esther LEVAN and they had eight children.
8. A daughter, who died young.
9. Esther.
10. Philip, born 1757, married (first) Esther SHENKEL, (second) Maria HOCH, who had Philip, John, Isaac, Susanna, Daniel, Jacob, Hannah, Samuel, Esther. Of these Philip married Maria YODER and they had five children.
11. Joseph, born 1758, died young.
12. Deborah, born 1761, married Peter KNABB. Their children were John, Cordelia and Deborah.

III. The children of Esther DETURCK and Abraham BERTOLET were:
1. Maria BERTOLET, born 1736; married Daniel HOCH.
2. Daniel BERTOLET, born 1741; married Maria YODER.
3. Elizabeth BERTOLET, born 1742, married John DETURCK.
4. Samuel BERTOLET, born 1743; married Esther FREY.
5. Esther BERTOLET, born 1746; married George YODER.
6. John BERTOLET, born 1750; married ----- SHENKEL. The mother, Esther DETURCK, was born in New York; married 1735; died 1798.

Daniel DETURCK, married to Catharine LEVAN, had five daughters, Susannah, Catharine, Deborah, Maria, Sarah. (See his will dated May 8th, 1791, Book 3, page 176 in Berks County Court- house)

Their fourth daughter, Maria, born February 16th, 1789, married Jacob MAURER September 19th, 1820, the ceremony being performed by Rev POULY (PAULI). Four children were born, three died in infancy, but one Daniel DETURCK MAURER, born May 7th, 1823, lived to a good age.

Mrs NAGLE has in her possession, Maria DeTURCK's Bible with her name in her handwriting, on the fly leaf, and some other papers, which they greatly value.

In the fifth, sixth, and seventh generations, the DETURCK name and blood was associated with these families: DEYSHER, GRIESEMER, BUTZ, SPOHN, VAN REED, ALTENDERFER, LEIDY, SNYDER, BARTO, DOTTER, HERBEIN, HOFFMASTER, BEAR, C.K. WHITNER, founder of WHITNER's Store in Reading, HOCH, HERZOG, MOLL, MENGEL, BECKER, GULDIN, KLINE, GRIFFITH, STEFFY, GIFT, MULLEN, RIESER, UNGER, REBER, BERTRAM, HIESTER, SEIBERT, GRIM, GROFF, MOYER, ZERBE, WENTZEL, BALTHASER, SPANGLER, STRAUSSER, STERTZER, DRIES, TRIVITZ, ROTHERMEL, ADAM, SUNDAY, LUCK- ENBILL, KLEE, REIST, EHMAN, BORTS, SCHMECK, REIFF, HARTMAN, KOCH, KERSCHNER, MARQUET, Rev Louis SMITH, KREBB, GOODHART, SHOLLENBERGER, BRUMBACH, LIVINGOOD, JACKSON, MOSER, GEIGER, RHOADS, PYLE, MILLER, SHIVER, GREENAWALT, HOLL, BROWN, RAHN, KUTZ, BECHTEL, BERNHART, IMMEL, DICK, LEWIS, BIEBER, DRY, and others.

SERVED IN REVOLUTION. Of the descendants of the third generation, Daniel, second son of John DETURCK, was a captain in the Revolutionary War. He had charge of a company of rangers on the frontier, being in service in the memorable July of 1776. Two other brothers, Abraham and Philip, served in the Revolution, as privates, in the company of Captain REIFF. We can thus see the stuff of which the early generations of this household were made. They were ardent patriots and fought for American independence. Here, in the present generations, it seems to me, the Berks Chapter of the O.A.R. Society and the Sons of the Revolution should be able to find recruits for their respective orders.

But not only in war, but in peace, were the DETURCKS ever counted among community Progressives and promoters of all betterment enterprises. Thus the pioneer, Isaac, was a signer for the erection of Oley Township as early as 1720. Again, when the westernmost members of the Oley (Pike) Union congregations were clamoring for a separate organization, about a century ago, as the village of Friedensberg was springing up, we find two great-grandsons of the immigrant (Abraham DETURCK Jr and John DETURCK) among the prime movers of the enterprise. Their names are found among those of the first contributors, and in 1830 the organization was effected and the edifice of Friedens Union Church begun. This was completed the following year at a total cash expense of $1,678.IIWI How the dollar has shrunk since then!

VAST CHANGES IN 200 YEARS. What marvelous changes have come to the Oley community, and to all Berks, and even to the original homestead farm, since first Isaac DETURCK, the American progenitor, settled here! While the soil has not deteriorated, rather gained, in fertility, the streams still flow as they did then and thousands of years before, singing: For men may come and men may go, But I go on forever, the brook's soliloquacious murmuring, according to Tennyson, and the surrounding hills of Oley still border the aboriginal Olink (kettle) of the red men, yet the white settlers have brought on the march of progress now visible on every hand. These early settlers have turned this "kettle" of the Indians into a rich domestic and agricultural paradise, and with other comers have made of Berks County an empire of busy life, industry, activity, population, wealth, and highest civilization. The plantation of Isaac DETURCK has now a pipe line feeder, laid (underground) through it by the Tuscarora Oil Company; the Boyertown trolley line crosses it, and a telephone wire chatters overhead; a concrete highway will this year be built nearby, while airplanes sail over with Uncle Sams' mail, and the wave motions of the upper atmosphere bring concerts, sermons, and addresses in a dozen metropolitan cities by radio to the firesides of scores of Oley dwellers each night and on every Sabbath day. Waken not the slumbering pioneers who built the first roads and laid the foundations of the first homes, schools, and churches, and were on peaceful terms with neighboring Indians, for the world has moved forward since their day and it would be hard to persuade them that they were indeed in Oley, in primitive America! Parents: Johannes DETURCK and Esther KIP.

Spouse: Anna Maria HARCOURT. Isaac DETURCK and Anna Maria HARCOURT were married about 1709 in Esopus, Duchess Co., New York. Children were: Esther DETURCK, Johannes DETURCK.


Jacob DETURCK was born after 1590 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He died before 1633 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He has Ancestral File Number 4R04-1F. King Francis I renewed the grant of nobility from Arnulph De Turk (brought to France by Count Kaimund of Toulouse from Palestine, where he was taken prisoner in 1105. He was a Turkish Emir (prince) and his name was Hayraddin Silodim. In France he assumed the name of Arnulph Le Turk ( the Turk). He was knighted and admitted into the nobility.

Spouse: Jacquemine RICKENBOSCHE. Jacob DETURCK and Jacquemine RICKENBOSCHE were married on 17 Nov 1615 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. Children were: Johannes DETURCK.


Johannes DETURCK. Parents: Isaac DETURCK and Anna Maria HARCOURT.

Spouse: Deborah HOCH. Johannes DETURCK and Deborah HOCH were married on 13 May 1740 in Oley Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania.


Johannes DETURCK was born in 1618 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He was christened on 1 Nov 1618 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He died between 1668 and 1700 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. Date and place are assumed. He has Ancestral File Number 4R03-Z4. Parents: Jacob DETURCK and Jacquemine RICKENBOSCHE.

Spouse: Geertruit DEBRIER. Johannes DETURCK and Geertruit DEBRIER were married before 1644 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. Children were: Johannes DETURCK.


Johannes DETURCK was born in 1650 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He was christened on 30 Jul 1650 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. He died between 1705 and 1725. Dates are estimated. He has Ancestral File Number 4R02-NF. He was the bergomeister of Frankenthal . Parents: Johannes DETURCK and Geertruit DEBRIER.

Spouse: Esther KIP. Johannes DETURCK and Esther KIP were married between 1680 and 1684 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. Date and place are assumed. Children were: Isaac DETURCK, Katarina Bertha DETURCK.


Katarina Bertha DETURCK was born about 1686 in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. She immigrated about 1707. She died about 1726 in Oley Twp., Berks Co., Pennsylvania. She has Ancestral File Number QTBH-6L. As noted under notes for the marriage between Johannes and Katarina, there are a couple of different theories about Katarina's maiden name. This family tree backs the DETURCK theory because the Deturck family, specifically Katarina's brother, Isaac, immigrated to the colonies around the same time as the KEIM family and they both settled in the Oley Twp. The MOYER surname is not interconnected with other parts of the KEIM family whatsoever in Oley. Parents: Johannes DETURCK and Esther KIP.

Spouse: Johannes (Hans) KEIM. Johannes (Hans) KEIM and Katarina Bertha DETURCK were married on 15 Sep 1706 in Landau, Speyer, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany. Johannes m. (1st) in Germany, in 1706, fourteen days before the feast of St. Michael's, Katarina MOYER.....I have seen that her surname was Moyer,
but have, also, seen it claimed that he was married to Katarina (or Bertha)
DeTurk, dau. of Johannes DeTurk and Hester (Esther) Kip (Katarina DeTurck is apparently the sister of Isaac DeTurck). Have even seen
that he was married to Katarina Haricourt.
Other sources also note that his first wife died in 1730 or 1731

From Rootsweb KEIM Mailing List:
Leah Kime Pratz in her manuscript "The record of the Keim, Kime and
Kimes and related families" says the following:
(pages are unnumbered)
"He [Johannes Keim] married (first) in Germany in 1706, Katarina Moyer; married
(second) January 1, 1731 Maria Elizabeth." She is listed as Katarina Moyer at
least three times in the manuscript. No sources are given. [NO SOURCES!!!!!]

From "History of Bettsville and Liberty Twp." (Seneca Co.)
by John E. Durrett. I'll summarize:
In 1698, Johannes Keim (Kime), age 23, left Landau, Bavaria, Germany, impelled
by religious convictions, and landed in Philadelphia. Johannes and wife, Katrina
Moyer, settled in Oley, PA, where he died ca. 1753.

Also:
"The record states that Johannes had six children by his first wife, Katarina
Moyer. The last child being born in 1724. He married a second wife, Maria
Elizabeth, in 1731, and their first child was born in 1732. In between these
two dates 1724-1732 is the only place where my ancestor, PHILIP, fits. He was
born in 1730, but there is no record that proves that this is so. However, all
research indicates that he is a descendent of the PA Keims. There is also a
record by Leah Kime Pratz - Annals of the Oley Valley. It is a very interesting
record of Johannes and his family."

In Keim and Allied Families in America and Europe, an entry from William Miles
Kime (Keim) of Pleasant Lodge, Alamance Co., N.C., dated September 1900 Vol.
1,2, Reading, PA - Harrisburg, PA. No. 22.; there is an article by Isaac DeTurk
(Doc. Hist., N.Y., O'Callaghan, Vol. III, P.551) as follows:

Another entry dated April 29, 1710: A tradition from the ancients of the family
says that Johannes Keim, Founder, married Bertha DeTurck. The marriage took
place 1706 in Germany before his return to America in 1707. The DeTurcks, of
Frankenthal, and the Keims of Landau, near Speyer, lived in localities not far
distant."

The first wife of Johannes Keim is Bertha DeTurck. It is mentioned in the Keim & Allied Families by DeB Randolph in their September 1900 issue #22.

Another source written on the family is the book by
VanCleave. He introduces yet another variation on the name of Johannes's first
wife; Katarine DeTurck (seems to be a combination of Bertha DeTurk and Katarina
Moyer) as the wife of Johannes Keim, the Immigrant.

An article about the KEIM family published in the Reading Eagle on March 12, 1972 shows the first wife as Bertha DeTurck, married in 1706. This article also states that Johannes married Marie Elizabeth in 1733.

It has also been related to the researcher that descepency in dates of the marriage (Jan 1, 1731 or March 25, 1731) could be because of a changeover from the Gregorian calendar.
Children were: Johannes Jacob KEIM.


Elizabeth DEVANEY.

Spouse: Samuel Barnet FERGUSON. Samuel Barnet FERGUSON and Elizabeth DEVANEY were married in 1821 in Rhea County, Tennessee. Children were: Enoch Douglas FERGUSON.

Rodrigo "El Cid Campeador (The Lord Champion)" DÍAZ DE VIVAR was born about 1040 in Vivar, Burgos, Spain. He died on 10 Jul 1099 in Valencia, Spain. He has Ancestral File Number 9HM5-T9. Roderigo grew up in the household of Sancho II of Castile, and in the military campaigns against Aragón for control of Zaragoza he distinguished himself as the king's premier knight. After Sancho was assassinated in 1072, Rodrigo entered the service of the new king, Alfonso VI. In 1081, however, he ran afoul of Alfonso and was exiled from the kingdom. He then set off for eastern Spain in search of honor, glory, and booty. He subsequently served the Moorish king of Zaragoza and other Muslim rulers. His military career culminated in his capture of Valencia in1094.

"In the year 1683, the house of Nicholas Disborough, at Hartford, was very strangely
molested by stones, by pieces of earth, by cobs of Indian corn, and such other things, from
an invisible hand, thrown at him, sometimes thro' the door, sometimes thro' the window,
sometimes down the chimney, and sometimes from the floor of the room, (tho' very close,)
over his head; and sometimes he met with them in the shop, the yard, the barn, and in
the field.

There was no violence in the motion of the things thus thrown by the invisible hand;
and tho' others besides the man, happen'd sometimes to be hit, they were never hurt by
them; only the man himself once had pain given to his arm, and once blood fetch'd from
his leg, by these annoyances, and a fire in an unknown way kindled, consum'd no little part
of his estate.

This trouble began upon a controversie between Disborough and another person, about
a chest of cloaths which the man apprehended to be unrighteously detained by Desborough;
and it endured for divers months: but upon the restoring of the cloaths thus detain'd, the
trouble ceas'd. "
