Daniel [Messenger] was the son of Samuel and Susanna (Mills) Messenger of Jamaica, Long Island; his grandfather, Andrew Messenger, appears as a signer of the 'fundamental agreement' at New Haven, Connecticut, 4 June 1639, and was an original proprietor and Magistrate of Jamaica.  (The name given to this town by the original settlers was Jamaica.)  The Dutch government conferred on the settlement the name of Rusdrop, which occurs frequently in the early records, and was probably used exclusively in conveyance of property.  After the surrender of the colony to the English, Jamaica soon came to be exclusively used.  (Two Centuries in the History of the Presbyterian Church, Jamaica, Long Island, James M. Macdonald [1862], p. 31.)

In the early part of 1670 Bording and Marius brought suit against Andrew Messenger, who was indebted to them for goods and merchandise to the sum of fl. 33,112 in seawan.  They won their case.  Andrew had also to pay the costs of the suit.  But as late as November, Andrew had not paid them, and they again complained.  The court ordered the sheriff to collect the money or pay it himself.  The sheriff was Allard Anthony.  As he took no steps to collect the sum, even after getting the orders of the court, the court ordered, on December 16, that the marshall should serve the execution upon the estate of Allard Anthony without any further delay.  In March, 1672, the court renewed this order.
