The earliest record of the Lasell family is of John Lzell, who married Jane Gates, and settled at Hingham, Massachusetts, in 1686. The name is also spelled Lasalle and Lassell and originally was undoubtedly La Salle.

The Troy branch of the family was founded by Samuel Hubbard Lasell, son of James Lasell, of Providence, Rhode Island, and Phoebe (Hall) Lasell, of North Bennington, Vermont. Samuel H. Lasell married Emma Quackenbush, of Troy, New York, and they are the parents of a son, Edwin Quackenbush, see forward. The Quackenbush family is descended from

(I) Pieter Quackenbos, of Holland, who settled in Albany, New York, in 1668. He married Adryana Van Ilpendam.

(II) Adrian Quackenbush, son of Pieter and Adryana (Van Ilpendam) Quackenbos, married Catherine Van Schaick.

(III) Sybrandt, son of Adrian and Catherine (Van Schaick) Quackenbush, married Elizabeth Knickerbocker.

(IV) Harman, son of Sybrandt and Elizabeth (Knickerbocker) Quackenbush, married Judith Morall.

(V) Sybrandt (2), son of Harman and Judith (Morall) Quackenbush, married Elizabeth Van Schaick.

(VI) Gerrit Van Schaick, son of Sybrandt (2) and Elizabeth (Van Schaick) Quackenbush, married Hannah Abigail Bayeux. He founded the dry goods business of G. V. S. Quackenbush, which after his death was conducted by Samuel Hubbard Lasell and has now passed into the hands of his son, Edwin Quackenbush Lasell.

Edwin Quackenbush Lasell, son of Samuel Hubbard and Emma (Quackenbush) Lasell, a resident of Troy, New York, married, 1890, Edna Long Maynard, of Washington, D. C., daughter of Edward and Caroline Ellen (Long) Maynard, the latter of whom was of Savannah, Georgia. Mr. and Mrs. Lasell have one child, Dorothy Maynard Lasell, born in Troy, New York.

Edward Maynard, father of Mrs. Lasell, was born at Madison, New York, 1813, died at Washington, D. C., 1881. He was the inventor of the Maynard rifle which was used by the United States government at the time of the civil war, and was also adopted by Germany and Sweden.
