Family of Caleb Seaman (1740-1820)

Updated December 3, 2006

About Our Family Research


Caleb Seaman was born on Long Island in the colony of New York. He was a great-grandson of Capt. John Seaman (1610-1694) who, in 1630, came to Massachusetts colony from England.

Caleb was a Loyalist and supported the crown during the American Revolution. After the war and his release from prison, he and his family left New York state and moved to Canada. In 1789 they settled in Ontario along the St. Lawrence River near Brockville. In recognition of his loyalty to the Crown, he was granted 200 acres of land. Several of his children were also granted their 200 acres.

Caleb setup shop as a blacksmith in the village of Lyn and raised his children. Of those 11 children, as adults, most stayed in Canada while some chose to make their homes across the river back in the young United States.

The descendants of Caleb now number into the thousands and are spread out from coast to coast, both in Canada and the United States. More details are available at www.seamanfamily.net
