Text: the immigrant ancestor, was the son of Rev. Thomas Harrison, native of Kingston-Upon-Hull, Yorkshire, England, who died an independent or Congregational minister of the gospel, in Dublin, Ireland, 1682, and his wife Katherine Bradshaw, daughter of Edward Bradshaw of London and Bromborough Hall, England.
Isaiah is thought to have been born in or near, the city of Chester, England, as a refugee from Dublin, sailed from this old port, or nearby Liverpool, which at that time was rapidly supplanting Chester as a point of departure, due to the silting of the River Dee, on the ship known as the "Spotted Calf", in 1687, landing first, Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. He died about 1728 in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia.
Isaiah Harrison came as a blacksmith to Oyster Bay, his name first appears in the town records when he was a freeholder, 2 January 1687. The following year, he purchased 100 acres of land at Suckscalls' Wigam from John Wright, his first wife's cousin, on 16 January 1668, for sixty pounds current money of New York. On this land he made his home. Since this land had been purchased from the Matenacocke Indians only three years previously, there is little doubt that Isaiah was the first white man to live on the site. His house is mentioned in a deed dated 10 November 1695, which records the purchase of an additional 81 acres of land holdings.
Isaiah Harrison was married first, in 1688, about a year after his settlement at Oyster Bay, to Elizabeth Wright, daughter of Gideon and Elizabeth Townsend Wright. Elizabeth died about 1698, leaving him with 5 small children. In 1700 Isaiah married second, Abigail Smith, thought to be the daughter of Jonathan Smith and his wife, Sarah Brewster, who was the son of the immigrant Richard Smith. (Patentee of Smithtown, L. I., New York, early 1600's.)
On April 20, 1702, Isaiah Harrison sold his entire possession of land at Oyster Bay and with his wife, Abigail moved the family to Smithtown. He purchased a tract of land for 400 pounds from William Lawrence, on April 20, 1702. The new home consisted of 500 acres of woodland on the west side of the Nissequoque River in the County of Suffolk, Long Island, New York. It was here that Isaiah and his wife, Abigail made their home and raised their children, along with his children by his first wife, Elizabeth. In 1708, he added another 200 acres.
On June 12, 1721, Isaiah Harrison sold the 500 acre home place at Smithtown to Amos Willitts and moved with his family to Sussex county, Delaware, where he bought 900 acres of land, known as "Maiden Plantation". He sold the remaining 200 acres at Smithtown to Richard Willitts on April 28, 1722. Up until this time Abigail's name appeared on all deeds. Her name was missing from deeds after April 28, 1722; so it is thought that she died in 1722. In the Spring of 172=37, Isaiah, his five sons and daughters, except Elizabeth and Gideon (who had died) with their wives, husbands and children, left Delaware and set out for the Valley of Virginia. This party of 16 went by the way of what is now Alexandria, Virginia, crossing the Blue Ridge at Thornton's Gap. As their former home was only 8 miles from Lewes, they no doubt embarked from Lewes on a sailing vessel, going by water to the old town of Belhaven on the Potomac. After winding their way along the South Fork of the Shenandoah, indications are that the Harrisons
