Full text of "A brief genealogy of the Usher family of New England"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for

use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

THE USHEK FAMILY. 






This family "has been very prominent in New-England, especially 
"rora the fact that John Usher was the proprietor of New-Hampshire, 
ind was involved in the numerous disputes connected with the settle- 
ment of that province. It has therefore seemed advisable to print the 
following account of the first four generations of the family in this 
country, and it is hoped that the record will be continued by members 
of the family. 

The family was founded here by two brothers, Hezekiah of Cam- 
bridge and Boston, and Robert of Stamford, Conn. We do not find 
any clue to their ancestry beyond the fact that John, son of Hezekiah, 
used a coat-of-arms. Hezekiah Usher mentions in his will his brother 
John Harwood and sister Elizabeth Harwood. This John was living 
at Bednall Green in 1665, as it appears by the Lane Papers. Heze- 
kiah's daughter m. Samuel Shrimpton, and the Shrimptons were from 
Bednall Green. Hence we may say that this locality is more likely 
than any other to repay investigation. 

Hezekiah Usher was a prominent merchant and member of the Old 
South church.; and his name occurs repeatedly oh our records. 

His brother Robert, according to Savage, abo left a good estate at 
his decease.
