      WILLIAM MOTT, born November 9, 1699, second son of GERSHOM and CATHERINE (Bowne) MOTT, was ancestor of the General. I can find little in regard to him. He was member of the Provincial Assembly in 1742 (Archives). He married (family Bible) MARGARET HARTSHORNE, a descendant of RICHARD HARTSHORNE (Salter's Monmouth County), whose father, WILLIAM HARTSHORNE, was of Leicestershire, England. RICHARD HARTSHORNE was born there October 24, 1641, and married MARGARET CARR, November 29, 1670. Their children were:

In the division of town lots at Middletown, 1667, lot 25 was awarded to William Golding, who sold it to RICHARD HARTSHORNE, April 23, 1670, recorded in Town Book, page 48, November 25, 1672.
