Pauline Kingsland Dall Donations

A New Map of the Island of Barbadoes
Donated by Pauline Kingsland Dall

In November 1983 we received a donation of a map of Barbados from Pauline Kingsland Dall, the great-great cousin of Joseph Kingsland III. Pauline Theriot Kingsland was born in New York City in 1920 and married Mark Healey Dall in 1946. Mark was born in Brookline, Mass., in 1915.

The significance of the map’s location and the spelling of “Barbadoes” recalls the arrival of the Kingsland family to New Jersey in the 1660s. Nathaniel Barnewall Kingsland had a sugar cane plantation in Barbados from the time he arrived from England in 1645 until his death in 1686. At that time, Barbadoes was the correct spelling for this West Indies island. In 1668, Nathaniel received the first patent of land issued in New Jersey by Philip Carteret, the Royal Governor. Never having visited the new colony personally, he instead sent his brother Robert’s sons, Isaac and Gustavus, to manage the 15,308 acres of land he was granted. The Kingsland patent today encompasses the towns of Lyndhurst, Rutherford, East Newark, North Arlington, and Harrison.

Pauline and Mark were married 54 years when he died in Sedona, AZ in 2000. Pauline died seven years later in 2007. They are both interred in Massachusetts where Mark was born.

The description that was written when the map was accepted by the Historic Restoration Trust was: entitled – “A New Map of the Island of Barbadoes”. A yellow patch shows the Kingsland origin. The map itself – 19-2/3” x 16-3/4” on a golden-brown mat; the buff color frame is 26-1/2” x 23-1/2”.

The map of Barbados is displayed in our Museum.

Kingsland Coat of Arms
Donated by Pauline Kingsland Dall

In March 1983 we received a donation of the pen and ink drawing of the Kingsland Coat of Arms from Pauline Kingsland Dall, the great-great cousin of Joseph Kingsland III.

When Nicholas Barnewall was elevated to Viscount in 1645, the land of his Viscountcy was the Kings land. He was referred to as Lord Kingsland and the name stuck. With the title came a coat of arms.

The description that was written when the drawing was accepted by the Historic Restoration Trust was: eagle?; scrollwork-maroon and silver blue on beige parchment; ½” black frame, width 10-3/4”, length 12-3/4” Malo mori quam firdari?; Kingsland. A further description was added later: Mrs. Dall was dissatisfied with the original frame, so she had it reframed. There is very little difference in the measurements. The color of the frame is now black and gold. It was returned to us Dec. 1983.

The back of the framed drawing reads: Kingsland Coat of Arms. Should have a 5th feather. Sketched by Robert E. Kingsland about 1979.

The translation of the Latin “malo mori quam foedari” in the drawing is “Death before dishonor”. The reference to a 5thfeather refers to the number of feathers that should have been included in the crown below the eagle. We are not sure that the crown is correct. It more than likely should have been a helmet. Included with this artifact are two more examples of the Kingsland Coat of Arms. In our Dining room we have a needlepoint version, and, in our Museum, we have an ink and watercolor rendition of the coat of arms. The ink and watercolor rendition is probably the most accurate.

This pen and ink drawing of the Kingsland Coat of Arms is in a glass case in our Museum.

Whitaker’s Peerage, Knightage and Companionage
Donated by Pauline Kingsland Dall

In December 1983 we received a donation of the 1928 edition of Whitaker’s Peerage from Pauline Kingsland Dall, the great-great cousin of Joseph Kingsland III.

Whitaker's Peerage is “a Directory of Titled Persons and containing an extended list of the Royal Family, the Peerage with titled issue, Dowager Ladies, Baronets Knights and Companions, Privy Councillors and Home and Colonial Bishops with a comprehensive introduction and an index to Country Seats.”

The description that was written when the book was accepted by the Historic Restoration Trust was: “a 1928 Edition of Whitaker’s Peerage, Knightage, and Companionage”; 8-3/4” x 5-3/4” – bright blue with gold letters; pages are gilt edged; it belonged to Mrs. Dall’s father who was Harold Kingsland.

Harold Nutting Kingsland was born in Melbourne Australia in 1889. He married Mathilda Marie Theriot in South Orange, NJ in 1919 after returning from WWI. Mathilda was born in 1891. They had two daughters, Pauline born in 1929 and Mathilda born in 1924. Harold passed away in 1978 and his wife, Mathilda passed away in 1979.

An inscription inside the edition of the book reads: “Harold Kingsland’s with love and kisses from WKS. Lambert Simnel. There are two x’s on page 41 referencing the Baron of Trimblestown and the Earl of Clanricande. There is a wealth of history in the references of Lambert Simnel, Trimblestown and Clanricande that tie into the Kingsland family. We have no idea whose initials are WKS.

Whitaker’s Peerage is in the bookcase in our Office.
