  • Notes 
    • Timothy's family descended from that large number of skilled glass-makers, mostly Huguenots, who, escaping Roman Catholic France, arrived in England after 1572, the year of the St. Bartholomew massacre.

      Timothy first appeared in the town records of Huntington in 1694 when he was assessed 7s. 9p. toward the cost of the Huntington Patent, granted the town by Governor Fletcher. On 22 Sep 1698, Timothy Conklin, Sr., deeded to “my sonn Timothy Conklin Junr., one halfe of my ould hous Lott yt was formerly my Fathers John Conklings togather with a hundred pound Right of Land and Medow belonging to ye same and at my Decease ye Remaining part of this sd Lott…” He also deeded to Timothy Jr., “my five acars peece of land lying in ye mill Ston Broock field,” together with dwelling houses, barns etc.

      Timothy's wife, whom he married around 1696, most likely had the surname Scudder and was Abigail or Sarah. The account book (1733-1740) of Gerret Van Horne, Huntington merchant, shows that Timothy Conklin’s wife both purchased goods and made payments on the account of Benjamin Scudder, Sr. in 1735.

      Timothy served in Captain Thomas Higbee’s Huntington militia company in 1715 and signed the Queens Village Disclaimer on 11 Jun 1731. His name appears many times in Huntington town and land records. The will of Timothy Conklin Jr., signed in 1735 and probated 14 Dec 1743, mentions his son (Ensign) Timothy Conklin “living on the main shore [Connecticut].”
