    • SOURCE NOTES:

      He resided in Hempstead all of his life. In 1658, he was in a Calf List for five calves; and on 29 November 1658 took up six acres of land. He maintained five cows in the east herd of the town in the same year.
      He was a holder of patent rights in Hempstead, this making him a proprietor of the town. He was
      chosen one of the townsmen by lot, 26 February 1660, which was confirmed by the local magistrates; and
      entered his earmark for cattle, 5 January 1665. Beginning in 1664, he appears in a number of business
      transactions and in drawings of land. In that year, Timothy with his brother Joseph joined a group of men
      who purchased a large tract of land in the Neward Bay and Staten Island Sound district of northeastern
      New Jersey called Arhter Koll or Back Bay. They contributed about four pounds each to the syndicate on the condition that, if they did not like the part of land assigned to them when it was divided, they could
      withdraw, which they did subsequently. Timothy was witness in the trail of a suit over this land purchase
      at Elizabethtown, New Jersey ( 17 November 1685 ). He bought a horse of Robert Marvin on the 3 May 1665 and sold to the latter a mare at the same time. On July 22, 1671, he exchanged meadows with
      Thomas Ireland and sold land to John Tredwell and to Samuel Embree. He is listed as drawing various
      lots of land in the town on the 9th April, 1677 and in June ( estimated date ), 1678 and on 25 December,
      1678. He sold land to Samuel Pine on the 5 June 1687. One 2nd October 1676 he was one of the signers of a round robin distributed among certain citizens of Hempstead who bound themselves to stand together against parties who had taken possession of " The Nick commonly called YE GREAT NECK". As a result of the physical conflict between opposing parties, five of the villagers of Hempstead were tried for
      riot. One of them was Timothy Halstead, either senior or junior, probably senior. Those arraigned pleaded not guilty; but the court after having heard the evidence, found them in the wrong. In a court held before the Constable and Overseers on the 5th January 1676, Cornelius MOTT was plaintiff in an action of the case against Timothy "HALLSTED", defendant; and on the 5 April 1676, the town records report Healstead's testimony in a suit between Samuel DENTON and John OKE ( ie. Jan Aukezen van NUYS ). John Bedell was plaintiff in a case against Timothy Halstead and Daniel Denton, 4 April 1677.
      He contributed two pounds to the support of the minister ( the Reverend Jeremiah Hobart ) in a rate
      list dated 24 May,1682. Later references are few. He testified in a suit presented at court on the 2nd August 1682 between Cornelius MOTT and William WYATT; and enetered another earmark for livestock on the 13 November 1684. On 11 July 1691, he signed a petition of one John STUARD to have the town grant land to the latter. One 3rd March 1700, his son-in-law, Richard Valentine referred to land on which Timothy Halstead was then still living in Hempstead.

      Timothy Halstead ( Sr. ) died in March 1703, at Hempstead, New York. The inventory of his estate was taken on the 10 March 1703 ( 1702-1703) and administration of the effects was granted to the oldest son, Timothy (Jr.). He was buried probably at Hempstead.
