KEITHLAND, KEITHLINE & CATHLINE

This "tree" is developed from "The Keithlines in U.S. & Canada" by Ralph B Cathline over the period 1970 to 1980. This "tree" goes back into Europe and later Pennsalvania. This document extracts the Keithlines, Keithlands and Cathline that began in Current New Brunswick with the landing on May 18 1783 of Philip Kichline / Keithline. This extract was done in 1994 by Ted Jack, husband of Glenna B. Cathline, to show their children Susan, Peter, David and James part of their maternal history. It has been updated by his his wife, Glenna (Cathline) Jack.

Philip Keithland arrived with the Loyalist May 18, 1783. There is no mention of a wife but a son is listed. 


Ralph Cathline makes the following note at the bottom of one page of his book: "It is now known that Philip brought with him to N.S. now N.B. besides Joseph another brother or sister thought to be Mary Ann and two others under 10 yrs old. Found in a book by D. C. [G?] Bells, 'Early Loyalists of Saint John', New Ireland Press, Box 905 Sta A, Fredericton, N.B. E3B 5B4."

He also observes the following:

 "Mrs. Marian R. Hart in her Supplement to "The Kichlines in America" mentions that Johann Peter, b Nov 8, 1722, had three Sons, so it is presumed by this Compiler (RBC) that Philip, b about 1745-7, who travelled to Saint John, N.B. in May, 1783, with Wife and Son Joseph; b, 1772, as a Loyalist; was a son of Johann Peter; and probably classed by his kinfolk as disloyal, by aiding or joining the British." p. D, "The Cathline Family Tree", August 1970, rev. 1980.

 However, Ralph's assumption that Peter must be Philip's father has no basis in genealogical proofs. Furthermore, at least four sons of Peter's are already documented: Peter Jr (1750), Andrew (1751), Jacob (1758), and Charles (1760). --CEB 


That Philip was loyal to the British has been well documented: From Series II Vol. II page 434 of the New Jersey Archives, Newspaper Extracts:

 WHEREAS Inquisitions were found the 20th day of June 1778, against the following persons who have joined, sided, or assisted the army of the King of Great-Britain in the present war against the American States, viz. Joseph Beer, Christopher Inslee... PHILIP KICKLINE, ...Thomas Turpan, late of Mansfieldwoodhouse, in the county of Sussex: which inquisitions were returned at the last session holden in said county, and proclamation made in open court according to law; and if the persons against whom inquisitions have been so found, or some person in their behalf, will not appear at the next court holden in the aforesaid county, and traverse the inquisitions, final judgment will thereupon be entered in favour of the State.

THE CATHLINE FAMILY TREE As seen and heard by Ralph B. Cathline August 1970, 1980

 KEITHLAND - KEITHLINE - KATHLINE - KATHALINE - CATHELINE - CATHLINE Pronounced in the 18th Centry as KETHLYNN and now pronounced in New Brunswick as Kath-line.

 p. 6: On May 18th, 1783, PHILIP KEITHLAND and his Family arrived at the mouth of the Saint John River, in the British Colony of Nova Scotia, later (July 1784) to be divided into two Provinces; New Bruswick was now born. It is presumed that they were part of the first; or "Spring Fleet" of Loyalists out of Long Island, New York.

 PHILIP brought with him his wife and Son Joseph age 11 years. It was not an easy life in the new Colony, as it was just a wilderness, except for a few Acadian settlers. It is not known whether Philip was a Soldier in one of the Loyalists Regiments or a farmer but stories have been told how he, as a young man in the Schuylkill River area in the then British Colony of Pennsylvania, killed a large rattlesnake with a stick and hung it on a branch of a tree. It was as large as a man's arm and both head and tail touched the ground, as it draped over the tree branch, and people came from miles around to see it!

 Philip was a big man and strong as an ox, like most of his descendants today. It has been said that he received a Grant of land From King George 3rd in the vacinity (sic) of what is now Market Slip but no record could be found to substantiate this.

 p. 7 Philip and his Family moved on up the St. John River to the Kennebecasis Bay and chose and island named Long Island after one in New York State. While Philip's wife was busy having children (6 in all) Philip and his Son Joseph built shelters, trapped and caught fish and hunted to supplement the Royal Bounty of Provisions issued by the Commissary to all Loyalists who required them.

 This period of time was very hard on all the Loyalists who left the various British Colonies after the American Revolution, because of their beliefs and loyalty to King and Country. They had given up their homes, businesses and many loved ones to settle in a new land, as told by Ester Clark Wright in her book "The Loyalists of New Brunswick." A book by Stuart Truman, "The Ultimate History of New Brunswick," also tells of the hardships endured by the Loyalists.

 On May 12th 1786, Philip did receive a Grant of land where he was living, being Lot No. 27 on Long Island in the Kennebecasis Bay, in the Messrs. Thomas Wetmore Survey, Grant No. 37 to one Henry Betner and 36 others, alloted in the Old Register by the Governor in Council.

 Philip's next child was Ann born 1784 a year after they arrived in the new Colony; then came Nellie, about 1786 and Catherine 1788 - Jacob 1790, and Elizabeth 1792.

 As time went by and the house was built, the land cleared and crops but in, the children soon grew. Education was at a minimum and the first school to be recorded was in 1841 from information supplied by Julia Redmore Walker, in which an Archive document listed Michael Penistan as the teacher, with instructions given in Reading and Writing, using Spelling book, New Testament and Roman Catholic Catechism.

 p. 8 The name "Keithline" changed many times through the years, namely because of no schooling and was Anglicized, as it was spelled as it sounded by those who wrote it.
