Loyalist Genealogy :  
Family History : There was one progenitor of the Martling name, Johannes Martlinghs, born about 1650, who arrived in New York from the Dutch West Indies and was married to Aeltje Jans Barents.

That he was a Loyalist seems clear. Martlings in New York all seemed to be Patriots. The name is not common and can be spelled Martlings, Mertling, and Marlin. Many by the name are buried in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Tarrytown, NY.
Family Genealogy : “My grandmother, born a Marling in 1888 in Raynardton, Nova Scotia, was Barnet Marling's great granddaughter.” – Cynthia L. Hamilton.
