HORSMANDEN, Daniel, jurist, born in Gouldhurst, Kent, England, in 1691; died in Flatbush, New York, 28 September, 1778. He was called to the city council of New York, 23 May, 1733, and was afterward recorder and chief justice from March, 1763, and also president of the council. In 1773 he was appointed a commissioner to inquire into the burning of the king's ship "Gasps" by a party of Whigs in the preceding year. In 1776, with Oliver De Lancey and about one thousand other residents of the city and county of New York, he signed an address to Lord Howe. He is buried in Trinity church yard. Judge Horsmanden published "The New York Conspiracy, or the History of the Negro Plot" (1741-'2; re-published in 1810), he having been one of the judges that tried the supposed conspirators, and "Letters to Governor Clinton" (1747).
