Biography :

Enos Flewelling was born about 1757 or 1758 on the farm of his parents Thomas Flewelling (John, Thomas) and his wife Elizabeth Griffin, in North Castle, Westchester County, New York. At about 19 years of age and unmarried, Enos left his father’s home in March 1777 with his three older brothers and travelled south to Long Island where they joined Colonel Edmund Fanning’s King’s American Regiment.

Two of his brothers succumbed to illness, perhaps smallpox or dysentery, and died within the next two years, while his brother Thomas Flewelling, Jr., a Sergeant of Dragoons, was killed while leading a reconnaissance party, probably near Charleston, South Carolina.

Enos’ family lived out the revolutionary years on Long Island. He accompanied his parents and younger brothers and sisters, a family of 13 in all, aboard the ship Cyrus, departing Long Island the 6th of Sept 1783 and arriving at Parr Town on the 14th. Several in this family, including Enos, had arranged before they left New York, to purchase lots from Stephen Kemble who had already received a large land grant along the west bank of the St. John River above the Long Reach, in what would become Kings County.

Enos first shared Lot 17 with one of his brothers, next to the lot of their father Thomas Flewelling of Oak Point, for a time known as Flewelling’s Landing.

At the death of his father in 1809, Enos was bequeathed Lot 21 on the Kennebecasis River, across the Kingston Peninsula from the St. John River, where he farmed and raised his family. He married Margaret Jewell, daughter of Abraham Jewell, probably about 1787; they were strong supporters of the church in the Parish of Kingston. He acquired over 500 acres of land by the time of his death in 1830, his date of burial in the records of Trinity Anglican Church is the 20th of June, when he was aged 72 years. His widow Margaret was buried beside him on 19 April, 1841.

Family History :

The Flewelling/Flewwelling family originated on Long Island, New York, with the apparent Immigrant Ancestor Thomas(1) Flewelling, somewhere between about 1655 and 1675; his son Thomas(2) Flewelling was in the care of his grandparents Robert Ashman and Katern (Jaycocks) Ashman and inherited property from them in 1689 and 1706.

Thomas(2) Flewelling married Hannah Smith of Hempstead and raised Mary; Thomas; Catern m. Ephraim Golding; John m. Elizabeth ‘Blue’ Smith; Abraham m. Hannah Tatam; Jane m. Jonathan Brundage; Phoebe m. Benjamin Hall; Hannah m. David Brundage; and Robert m. Maplet ?.

John(3) Flewelling and Elizabeth ‘Blue’ Smith raised their family in Hempstead, then Fishkill in the Rumbout Precinct, and then in Newburgh, Orange County, N.Y., and died about the time of the Revolution. Their sons and grandsons were Loyalists:

  • Thomas Flewelling of North Castle, N.Y. and Oak Point, N.B. and his sons;
  • John Flewelling Jr. (imprisoned by the rebels and escaped) and his sons;
  • Morris Flewelling who died of unknown causes about 1779;
  • James Flewelling who was hanged for his Loyalist activities at Goshen in June 1779; and
  • Abel Flewwelling.

Their daughters’ husbands and other in-laws were devoted Patriots, while some family members were Quakers and managed to fly under the radar.

Loyalist brothers Thomas, John, and Abel, along with their nephews Francis and Joseph, settled in New Brunswick: Kings County and Saint John for the most part.

Thomas Flewelling and his family, including his adult son Enos, settled on land they had purchased from Stephen Kemble at Oak Point on the River St. John. Enos was bequeathed a lot on the Kennebecasis River which his father had acquired, where he became the founder of the Flewelling family of the Kingston Peninsula. His sons and grandsons became farmers, merchants, blacksmiths, justices, and shipbuilders in Clifton, Kings County, and several were elected representatives to the provincial government in the late 19th century.
