  • Note*: 1782; Vermont, USAG; KNOWLTON, Luke, (or Knoulton, as
    he wrote the name), count ilor, judge, early
    settler and most influential citizen of New-
    fane, and holding some anomalous positions
    in the early controversies, was born at
    Shrewsbury, Mass., November, 1738. He
    was a soldier in the French and Indian war,
    was stationed at Crown Point for a while,
    and came close to starvation in the march
    from that point to Charleston, No. 4, where
    his company was obliged to kill its last pack
    horse for food. He rame to Newfane in
    177;?. the fifteenth family to settle in town,
    ani'. < a I lie under a New York title which he
    and another man had pur* hased from a lot
    of speculators in New York City. Naturally,
    therefore, he took the New York side in the
    controversy with the Green Mountain boys,
    and adhered to it until i ;8o, when he and
    Ira Allen came to terms while they were at
    Philadelphia as agents for the two sides



    before Congress. But it is certain, in spite
    of the accusations of later years, that he was

    on the patriot side at the opening of the
    Revolution, and there is no sufficient reason
    for im])UL;ning his patriotism afterwards, for
    at the time it was done he was acting
    in concert with the erinont leaders when
    his social and personal connections were
    such as to make hi in a convenient medium
    of communication with the Hritish. From
    June, 1 776, to June, 1777, he was a member
    of the Cumberland county committee of
    Safety.

    May 17, 1774, on the organization of the
    town of Newfane, he was elected town clerk
    and held that position si.tecu years. In
    1772 he had been appointed by New York
    one of the justices of peace for the county.
    In September, 1780, the Yorkers of Cum-
    berland county sent him to Congress as their
    agent to oppose the pretensions of the new-
    state, and for this service he had a letter of
    recommendation from Governor Clinton, of
    New York. It was while on this mission
    that the arrangement was made with Ira
    Allen, on a basis, as the latter wrote, that
    should " be honorable to those who had
    been in &vor of New York." The arrange-
    ment was to call a convention of delegates
    of all parties interested, including the New
    Hampshire towns that wanted to unite with
    Vermont.

    The next month we find Knowlion active
    as chairman of a Cumberland county com-
    mittee of thirteen to bring about this con-

    vention, which firstmet at Walpole, and then

    Jan. 10, 17.S1. He va:> prcsciu at the latter
    convention, acting in concert with Allen, who
    was manipubtirm it from the outside. The
    result was tiiL 'Last union" of thirty-five
    New Hampshire towns with 'ermont, and
    following that the "\ st uninn" nf tliat part
    01 New York to the hanks ut IlmiMin river,
    imrth of Massachusetts line to latitude 45**.
    K)ii>wlton wa'< c-i(U'ntn satisfied \{h this,
    as were most ot the .New Vork adherents in
    Windham county, for he soon appeared
    amoni,' tlu it arlers in Vermont j)olitics.

    He was town reprcisentulive in the (ieneraJ
    Assembly of the state of Vermont during the
    years 17S4. 1788, 17.S9, 1792, iS'o-;, and
    1 806, and a member of the old council from
    179010 1800 ; judge of the Supreme Court
    in 1 7X6. and judf^e of the Windham coimty
    court from 1787 to 1793.

    In 1782 while the Haldimand intrigue was
    nt its iirt^^ht nnfl emi'-sarit"- were passing
    thick back and forth through Vermont, a dis-
    patch was intercepted which showed that the
    British coiniu.itulcr in Canada was innimuni-
    cating with British agents in New Vork City
    by means of letters, exchanged through Mr.
    Knmvltiin mil ( ol. Samuel Wells, of Hrattle-
    buro. 1 he thing was ot course suspicious,
    and there is no doubt that Wells was thor-
    oughly Tory in sympathy ; but it was neces-
    sary for the Vermont policy at this time tliat
    Haldimand should frequently consult the
    r.ritish commander in New Vork about it,
    and it had to be done through men in whom
    both parties had confidence. The discovery
    was laid before Congress by W ashington anil
    the result was an order for the arrest of
    Wells and Knowlton. Their escape to
    Canada was aided by the Aliens. Knowlton,
    however, returned within a year, and was at
    his house in Newfane, November 16, 1783,
    when a lot of ^¦orkers but American symi)a-
    thizers broke in and arrested him, and forcibly
    deported him to Massachusetts. (leneral
    Fletcher and Colonel Bradley organized a
    rescuing party, but Mr. Kncwlton returned
    before it became necessarv ior them to act.
    It was this case of abduction for which the
    leader of the rioters. IVam i-> IVnstv. wns in-
    dicted for burglary al Westminister, and
    which resulted in this curious verdic t : " I he
    inry find in this case that the prisoner did
    break and enter the house of Luke Knowlton,
    Esq., in the night season, and did take and
    carry aw.n tlie said I.iike Knnwlton, and if
    that breaking a house and taking and carry-
    ing away a person as aforesaid amounts to
    burglary, wc =;ay he is guiltv : if not. wr snv
    he is not guilty." The judgment of the
    court on the veirdict was not guilty.

    John A. Ciraliam, in a series of rambling let-
    ters descriptive of Vermont scenery, written



    and published at the close of the last century,
    thus speaks of Judge KnowUtm : "Newfane
    owes its consequence in a great measure to
    Mr. Luke Knowlton, a leading character and
    a man of great amliiti<»n and enterprise, of
    few %vords, but possessed of great ipiit kness
    and perception and an aininst iimmr e
    knowledge of human nature, of vhi< h he- a
    perfect judge." "Saint Luke" was the ap-
    pelation given Mr. Knowlton by his contem-
    |)oraries beransc of jrnvr and suave man-
    ners and his decorous deportment even to
    the point of humility. He was liberal and
    generous to the i»oor, entered heartily and
    zealously into all the public enterprises of
    the day, gave to the county of Windham the
    land for a common on Newfane hill at the
    time of the removal of the shire from V'est-
    minster to Newfane, and contributed laiigety
    towards the erection of the first rourt liouse
    and jail in Newfane. Judge Knowlton died at
    Newfane Nov. i», 1810, aged seventy-three.

    and four daughters were' the fruit of the
    union, nearly all of whom had distinguished
    careers or connections. Calvin, the eldest,
    graduated at Dartmouth and was a promis-
    ing lawyer at .Newfane at the time of his
    death at the age of thirty-nine. Patty, bora
    in 1762, dying in Ohio in 1814, married
    Daniel Warner and was the grandmother
    of Hon. Willard Warner, late I nited States
    senator from .labama, and during the civil
    war a member of ( leneral Sherman's staff in
