DAVID TROWBRIDGE

(From "The Trowbridge Genealogy" by Francis Bacon Trowbridge, 1908)

"The family descend from David Trowbridge, born in 1762 (actually around 1779), who emigrated from near Troy, N. Y., across the Niagara frontier into Canada during or soon after the Revolution. He was a soldier in the War of 1812, being a color sergeant in the British army, and fought all through the war. He was in action at the battle of Queenston and at the battle of Lundy's Lane he was placed in the van of the regiment there in action. He came through the war unharmed. For his services he and his wife Mary received a grant of 200 acres of land from the government of Upper Canada. He died in 1816. His widow married again. He had brothers: Crispus Trowbridge (actually David's father), who settled at Niagara about 1774, and emigrated to Canada, and George Trowbridge (no information if he actually existed) , who served twenty-one years as a lieutenant in the British army. David Trowbridge had daughters: Elizabeth, Phebe, Keziah, Hannah, Mary, Eliza and Margaret, and one son: Lambert."
