"Vermont History", Vol. XXIX No. 2 April 1961

Sylvanus Evarts, Governor Chittenden's Tory Brother-in-Law, by Gwilym R. Roberts

On February 20, 1779, the Assembly of the State of Vermont joined the Governor and Council in granting to Timothy and Eli Evarts 120 acres of land in Castleton, in recompense for a debt owed by the state to their father. This would not in itself be remarkable were it not that six days later the father, Sylvanus Evarts, was proscribed as a Tory, and all of his property ordered seized for the benefit of the state. Commenting that "the sin of the father was not visited upon the children," the editor of the records of the Vermont Governor and Council in 1873 referred to this grant as a "remarkable instance of generosity."

A rather important fact of which the editor apparently was unaware, and which has escaped other Vermont historians, is that Eli and Timothy Evarts were nephews of Governor Thomas Chittenden and that Sylvanus Evarts, center of an important group of Castleton Tories, was a brother-in-law of the governor. The family histories of Thomas Chittenden and Sylvanus Evarts illustrate well the fact that social standing was no sure guide in determining loyalty during the American Revolution, and that men of apparently similar backgrounds often chose opposite sides in that struggle.

The Chittenden and Evarts families had lived near each other in East Guilford, Connecticut, for at least ninety-seven years before the day in 1749 when John, Nathaniel, and Sylvanus Evarts joined some of the Chittenden family in a move to the young town of Salisbury, in northwestern Connecticut. In the group were Thomas Chittenden, a nineteen-year-old bridegroom, and his sister Elisheba, two years his senior, who was married to Sylvanus Evarts.

<snip>

When the leading men of Salisbury decided to try to gain possession of some land in the "New Hampshire Grants" John Evarts was chosen to go to Portsmouth to apply for two townships. By redistributing the names on his list, he secured charters for three townships on Otter Creek -- New Haven, and Salisbury. His name headed each charter, and eight other members of the Evarts family, including his two brothers, were to be found among the grantees, as were Thomas Chittenden, and most of the other leading citizens of Salisbury. As in the case of most other New Hampshire grants of the early 1760's, most of the recipients used their ownership of land in the "Grants" for purposes of speculation rather than of settlement.

<snip>

Before 1776, Oliver Evarts had joined his father in Castleton <snip>. In February of 1776, Oliver Evarts went back to Salisbury to marry Nancy Landon, daughter of James Landon, J.P., who performed the ceremony, James Landon was one of the wealthiest men in Salisbury, and had represented that town in the Connecticut Assembly on many occasions. Within a few months after the wedding, Asa Landon, Oliver's new brother-in-law, moved to Castleton. <snip> In May of 1775, Zadock Remington's tavern in Castleton became the rendezvous point for the expedition for the capture of Ticonderoga planned and led by Ethan Allen, formerly part-owner of the iron "furnace" in the Furnace Pond area of Salisbury, the section in which the Evarts family had lived.

<snip>

After the British had gone, persons who had accepted Burgoyne's protection reluctantly or insincerely were treated gently by the Vermont government, but Sylvanus Evarts and his family were not in this group. In January 1776, Oliver Evarts apparently was working closely with the "Green Mountain Boys" when he was named one of the three assistant secretaries at the Dorset Convention but in 1777 his attitude was quite different. He was later to assert that he "gave all assistance in his power to the Army under the Command of Gen. Burgoyne," furnishing provisions, fat cattle, and forage, and his team to transport provisions, "procuring and clearing a Road through the Woods from Castleton to East Bay." Sylvanus Evarts, Gilbert Evarts, and Asa Landon must have joined Oliver Evarts in enthusiastic support of the British army, for the Vermont Court of Confiscation first met in April of 1778, these four men were in the first group of Tories whose real and personal property was declared forfeit to the state by reason of their treasonable conduct. The presiding officer of this court was Gov. Thomas Chittenden, Sylvanus Evarts' brother-in-law; the clerk was Matthew Lyon, whose wife was Sylvanus Evarts' niece; a third member of the five-man board was Timothy Brownson, a former Salisbury neighbor who, like Chittenden, had secured his Otter Creek lands through the activity of Gilbert Evarts' father.

It was under these circumstances that the Governor and Council and the Assembly of Vermont voted to give to Eli and Timothy Evarts 120 acres of land for debt due to their father from the state. <snip>

For sixty pounds each, James Claghorn, commissioner of sequestration, sold this mill interest to another commissioner, George Foote, and to Zadock Remington, each of whom thus gained one quarter of the water right. <snip>
