Judge Jessup’s Calumniator
Mr EB Chase the editor of the Montrose Democrat has for a number of weeks taxed his abilities to the utmost in traducing Judge Jessup; yest this same Chase only a few months ago on the decease of Judge Burnside, wrote a letter to Gov Johnston in which he expressed his belief that “the Hon William Jessup, President Judge of the 11th judicial district, is a gentleman of acknowledged talent, a ready and profound lawyer, prompt business man, and is amply qualified in every respect for a place upon the bench of the Supreme Court” and asked for his appointment to fill the vacancy! Judge Jessup is the same now that he was when this letter was written. Chase has changed his tune through motives which he would blush to have accurately written down and spread before the public.

Not sure if this is Wm the father (likely) or WmH the son who was a lawyer and later judge - “honorable”

61. William Jessup (Zebulon-4; Thomas-20; Henry-10; John-2; John-1), removed to Montrose, PA in 1818, and died there 11 Sept., 1868. He graduated at Yale College in 1815; admitted to the bar in 1820; was strongly interested in the missionary and temperance causes and in popular education, and for many years prominent in the councils of the Presbyterian church. From 1838 to 1851 he was presiding judge of the 11th judicial district of PA. Four of his five sons, as well as a grandson, have received degrees from Yale college; one Judge William Huntting Jessup (Yale, 1849), now lives at Montrose, and two others, the Rev. Henry Harris Jessup, D.D. (Yale, 1851) and the Rev. Samuel Jessup (honorary A.M., Yale, 1863), have long been connected with American Missions in Syria. The remaining two sons are George A Jessup of Scranton (banker) and Huntting C. Jessup (Yale, 1864). There were also five daughters.

Judge William Jessup
    Judge William Jessup, a graduate from the bench of Susquehanna County, was a prominent figure in the law business of Luzerne County in the early days. He was an exceptionally able lawyer and strong vigorous character. His practice was not limited by state boundaries. He had a large clientele in New York City and state as well as throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
    In the latter part of his life he went into coal mining in the upper part of Lackawanna Valley. The town of Jessup is named after him. He built what is known as the Jessup branch of the Lackawanna Railroad, extending from Jessup to the main line of the Lackawanna at Greenville - now Nay Aug.
    The Jessup Company, which he organized and of which he was the head, failed through conditions for which Judge Jessup was not responsible, yet it cost him his handsome fortune.
    Judge Jessup was a delegate to the Republican National Convention at Chicago which nominated Abraham Lincoln for President in 1869 and made one of the speeches, placing the great emancipator in nomination. He was a strong man, one of the giants of that period of great men.
    He was a graduate of Yale College of the class of 1815 and had conferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws.

[NOTE.--Dr. John Mackie was born in Dundee, Scotland, and came to Southampton before 1733. He died May 7, 1758, aged 63. His wife Mehetabel died March 10, 1771, aged 69. His son, George Mackie, died 1813. He married Jane, daughter of Zebulon Howell. She died April 5, 1847, aged 93. Their children were George (who died unmarried), Nancy, first wife of William S. Pelletreau, Mehetabel, wife of Deacon John Rogers, and Sophia, wife of Uriah Halsey. The Presbyterian Church stands on his home lot. Andrew Mackie moved away, and all the property finally came in possession of David Mackie. The homestead of Dr. John Mackie is on the west side of Main street of Southampton, and now owned by Mrs. Mary A. Allen, and next north of the homestead of Henry Sayre. The old house is yet standing. He bought this lot of Joseph Fordham in 1740. The "Pound Lot" is where the second church was built in Southampton. It is on the east side of the street, opposite the Presbyterian Parsonage, and now owned by heirs of Edwin Post. After the third church was built the lot was used for a pound, and was afterward sold to Dr. Mackie. The name is extinct in Southampton. David Mackie left sons, Peter and William, who inherited the property. Both died unmarried. He also had a daughter Pamela, who married Samuel Huntting Jessup, and had children, Elizabeth, second wife of Captain George Post, and Zebulon Jessup. Their children are the only descendants of Dr. John Mackie, now residing in Southampton. The Frog Pond Close is directly opposite the south end of Main street, Southampton. The "Toilsome land" is on the south side of Toilsome lane, west of the homestead of James A. Hildreth.--W. S. P.]

PG332: Jessup Family.
This family is thought by a writer in the New Eng. Hist, and Gen. Register, vol. 10, p. 358, to be of the family of Jessops of Bromehall, in Yorkshire. The name is variously spelled on the records in this country. If this is really the home of the Long Island family, their arms, granted July 13, 1575, would be : Barry of six argent and azure, on the first nine mullets gules, three, three and three.
John Jessup, the ancestor of the Southampton family, is said by a descendant, Mr. John Jessup Howell, to have come to Massachusetts in 1620, but I find no earlier trace of him than 1637, when he was in Hartford; then, before 1640, of Wethersfield, from which he
was one of the first settlers of Stamford in 1640, and thence, as early as 1649, of Southampton.
