Name Index

Nicholas Northup was born on 1/20/1690 the seventh child of Stephen Northup Jr. He married Abigail Slocum in 1721, (She was born Abt. 1692, and died Abt. 1729), and they had 4 children by January of 1728, and he married the second time to Freelove Eldred (B. 29 MAR 1701) on June 23, 1730. They had three more sons and at least one daughter, mentioned in his will. Freelove was the daughter of Capt. Daniel Eldred (B. 17 Aug 1659 and D. 13 Aug 1728; North Kingstown, Washington, RI) and Mary Phillips. She was born in North Kingstown on March 29, 1701 and died Abt. 1758 in North Kingston, Rhode Island, when Nicholas married for a third time to the widow Sarah Gould, who survived him when he died sometime after 1764, when he made a will where he refers to himself as being "aged". On December 9, 1755, Nicholas and Freelove Northup deeded to their son, Rouse, 52 acres of land on Boston Neck, in North Kingstown, land once owned by Stephen. The Northups were farmers and ferry keepers, and owned the ferry from Plum Beach to the Island of Jamestown. There is quite a bit of historical data available on this family and I will be linking in some of these State of Rhode Island records in the near future.
