PREFACE. 



The following pages comprise 1st, an introduction, exhibiting 
the lineal connection between Ralph Hemenway of Roxbury, Mass., 
1634, and Daniel Hemenway of Shrewsbury, Ma8S.,«b. in 1719; 2d, 
a Record of the descendants of said Daniel H. down to 1881. 

The arrangement of the Record will be obvious upon a slight in- 
spection. The children of Daniel H. are designated by Roman 
numerals, and che record of the descendants of each one in its 
order is traced by itself through to the present time. The later 
generations are designated by Arabic numerals, each generation 
being placed a little to the right of the preceding one. 

The usual abbreviations are used, vi2., b. for born, m. for mar- 
ried, etc. The work is now offered to the kindred whose records 
are embodied in its pages, believing that, in the main, it is correct. 
Some errors may have escaped the eye both of the compiler and 
the proof-reader. 

The compiler acknowledges his obligations to all the kindred for 
furnishing their personal family records, especially to some who 
have furnished still larger records. He is greatly indebted to 
Horace P. Hemenway, M.D., for the Introduction, the fruit of 
patient and thorough research. Also he is indebted to R. D. H. 
Allen of Terry ville, Ct., for services rendered in carrying the work 
through the press, and to him and Samuel H. Chipman for the 
means of publishing it.

INTRODUCTION. 



The first record relating to the Hemenway family that has been 
found in New England is in the Town records of Roxbury, Mass., 
where Ralph Hemenway married Elizabeth Hewes July 5, 1634. 

From Ralph probably descended all in this country bearing the 
name of Hemenway, alias Heminway, Hemingway, Hemmenway, 
Heningway, and Heneway. 

It has been found difficult to trace the family prior to 1 634. 
The same difficulty is found by all whose ancestors immigrated 
about that time, as the time 1632 to 1636 was^the period of the 
great rush of immigrants to New England, and many expedients 
were resorted to to get passage. Many unmarried men and women 
were entered as ^* servants, " no name being given, and they can- 
not be traced by either ship or nativity. In the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 11, page 259, 1857, 
is given "a list of Pedigrees contained in William Paver's 
consolidated visitations of Yorkshire, England ; being those taken 
in 1584, 1612, and 1665. Then follows, on page 263, "a list of 
alliances, or marriages with some of the families named in that 
list." In this list the name of Hemingway is found recorded as 
having made three alliances. It may therefore be fairly inferred 
that the family was in Yorkshire, or its immediate vicinity, at that 
early date. 

This statement may lead to further investigation by some one 
having an opportunity, and the question be definitely settled. The 
early records of Roxbury are meager and fragmentary. It is 
supposed the earliest records were destroyed either by a fire that 
happened in 1645 or during the Indian troubles in 1675 to 1680. 

There was great negligence in keeping important family records. 
At that time marriages were not performed by ministers, but by 
magistrates appointed by the General Courts, and church and town 
records often afford little or no information regarding marriages, 
births, and deaths.

b INTRODUCTION. 

Ralph is mentioned as " active in town affairs." " He was early a 
member of the Roxbury church." He must have brought prop- 
erty with him; as by "a note of ye estates and persons of ye 
inhabitants of Roxbury," made about 1638, he appears to have 
been one of the largest tax-payers and landholders. 

His wife was a sister of Joshua Hewes, also one of the wealthy 
men of the town. 

He took the freeman's oath Sept. 3, 1 634. The date of admis- 
sion as ^' freeman" is no criterion of age. It only shows he had 
previously joined a church here. His wife was bom in 1603, and 
died in 1684-5, aged 82. He died in 1678, and his will made 
May 4, 1677, and recorded in Suffolk Probate Records, (Roxbury 
District,) mentions his great age. His will and the custom of the 
time would indicate that he was older than his wife. Ralph's 
eldest son, Samuel, settled in New Haven, Conn., and no attempt 
has been made to trace his descendents for this work. His other 
sons John and Joshua, remained in Roxbury. John, by the will of 
his father, retained the homestead; as appears by the following 
extract which maybe of interest to some. ^^ Item, My will is 
that my wife Elizabeth shall have my whole estate for her com- 
fort and subsistance during her natural life, to remain wholly in 
the hands of my son John Hemenway, to improve for her comfort; 
for to him, in a peculiar manner, do I commend and commit the 
care of my loving wife; hoping that he will for the future be 
careful and dutiful, as he hath formerly been ; and after the death 
of my loving wife, ray will is as foUoweth — Item. I do give 
unto my son Samuel Hemenway twenty shillings, to be paid to 
him by my son John Hemenway, within one year after the death 
of my said wife, in current country pay; and the reason why I do 
give him no more is because I took upon myself, indebted, and 
engaged unto my son, John Hemenway, who hath taken care of 
me and my wife in our age, and knowing that God hath dealt 
bountifully with my son Samuel, I desire him to accept my love 
in this legacy." Then follow *• Items " bequeathing, after the 
death of his wife, a certain piece of land to Joshua, and directing 
John to pay certain legacies in money to his daughters, Ruth 
Hemenway and Elizabeth Holbrook. John was, by the will, 
appointed one of the executors. From Roxbury, branches of the 
family settled in Framingham, where lived Joshua, Ichabod, and 
Ebenezer, sons of Joshua, son of Ralph of Roxbury. 

There are no church or town records showing that Joshua, 



n 



INTRODUCTION. 7 

Ichabod, and Ebenezer were brothers. That is proved, however, 
beyond a doubt, by reference to Suffolk Probate Records (Rox. 
Diet.), where may be found recorded an order by the court for 
the distribution of the estate of Joshua Hemenway of Roxbury; 
and "his grandson Benoni Hemenway, who is the eldest son of 
Joshua, son of the first-named Joshua," was appointed trustee. *• He 
saving unto Elizabeth Hemenway, relict widow of said Joshua, 
her right of dower during her term of life; " and further ordering 
him "to pay unto the children of said Joshua Hemenway, or their 
representatives, namely: to Ralph, deceased or his heirs; Icha- 
bod; Samuel; deceased or his heirs; John, deceased or his heirs; 
Ebenezer; Elizabeth Stanhope, deceased or her heirs; and Joanna 
Ainsworth ten (10) pounds, eleven (11) pence each." A further 
distribution was ordered to be made after the death of his widow. 
This order was dated June 13, 1734, and shows who of Joshua's 
children were dead and who living at that time. 

The three brothers settled near each other in Framingham, and 
families of their descendants have lived in the town ever since. 

Several families have also lived in Shrewsbury, Marlboro, South- 
boro, Barre, and other towns in Mass. 

From Ralph Hemenway in Roxbury, 1634, through his son 
Joshua, have descended the families hereafter mentioned, as fol- 
lows: 

1. Ralph Hemenway, married in Roxbury, Mass., Elizabeth 
Hewes, July 5, 1634, and had 'Mariah, b. ApL, 24, 1635, buried 
May 4; ''Samuel, b. June, 1636; '^Ruth, b. Sept. 21, 1638; *John, b.

1645, married Holbrook; 'Mary, b. Apl. 7, 1647, died 1653. 

Ralph died June, 1678; and his wife, Feb. 2, 1684-5, 8b. 82. 

2. Samuely "son of Ralph (1), settled in New Haven, Conn., 
married Sarah, daughter of John Cooper, and had * Sarah, b. July 
26, 1663; 'Samuel, b. Dec. 1-3, 1665; »Mary, b. July 5, 1668; *Han.

1675; ''Abraham, b. Dec. 3, 1677; ''"'•Isaac and Jacob (twins), b. 
Dec. 6, 1683." — Savctge^s N. England Genealogies. 

3. John^ son of Ralph (1), til in Dorchester Mary Trescott Oct. 
6, 1665, and had in Roxbury, Thankful, b. 1668, married Jacob 
Parker in 1687; ''Marie, b. 1670; ''Marie, b. 1674; ^Sarah, b. and d., 
1687; *John, b. 1690. John, the father, died Oct. 4, 1724, sb. 82. 
(There is no record of the son John, except of his birth. Probably 
he died unmarried, and, as he was the only male issue, this family 
disappears from the record.)

The foregoing records are taken mostly from Barry's History of 
Framingham. Changes have been made in accordance with the 
more accurate information obtained recently in regard to the family 
of Joshua, Sr. 



RECORD OF DANIEL HEMENWAY. 

The above genealogical record of the Hemenways, prepared by 
H. P. Hemenway, M.D., of Somerville, Mass., shows a regular 
line of descent from Ralph of Roxbury, 1634, to Daniel of Shrews- 
bury, Mass., 1750, whose father's family record appears above. 
In tracing from this point the line of descent in our branch of 
the Hemenway family, we take Daniel, the fourth child, and sec- 
ond son of Ebenezer of Framingham, and propose to trace his 
descendants, as far as may be, in chronological order, down to the 
present time (1880). Daniel, son of Ebenezer, b. in Framingham, 
Feb. 2, 1719, m. 1st, Ruth Bigelow, June 7, 1743, and both were 
admitted to the church from Marlboro to that of Shrewsbury, in 
1750; Ruth d. May 4, 1768, aged 49, leaving 8 children. Daniel 
m. 2d, Elizabeth Johnson of Marlboro, Mass., Dec. 1, 1768, who 
d. Oct. 23, 1782, leaving one son. Daniel's 3d wife was Abigail, 
widow of Nahor Wheelock, m. 1783. He d. Nov. 15, 1794, in 
Shrewsbury, aged 75. fle was by trade a housewright. He 
framed the present (1847) meeting-house of Shrewsbury, the south 
one in Worcester, in which Rev. Mr. Whitney long officiated, and 
many other public buildings. He was one of the strong men of 
the town, was a warm patriot in the Revolution, and a delegate to 
the Convention that framed the Constitution of Massachusetts. 
Through Jacob, his next younger brother, he early became inter- 
ested in the settlement of Vermont. 

As early as Oct., 1 762, we find the name of Jacob Hemenway 
among the patentees of Shoreham, Addison Co., Vt., a town lying 
on the shore of Lake Champlain. It was that fact, without doubt, 
that led Daniel to go there in 1783 ; and his going opened way for 



10 TEMPLE FAMILY. 

four of his eight sons eventually to settle in Vermont. At the first 
meeting of those patentees, of which there is any record extant, we 
find Daniel there (1783) as treasurer for the patentees, and their 
superintendent to oversee the laying out of the lands of the town. 
His son Asa^s name also appears in the said record as a collector of 
taxes of said patentees. It is also known that Daniel took up 
land there, on which he . built a log-shop, which afterwards was 
used as a chair-shop by his son Samuel, who removed to Shoreham 
in 1792, two years before his father's death. It is not known how 
many visits he may have made there, but he is known to have 
been in Shoreham and Bridport, the adjoining town, in the winter 
of 1791, three years previous to his death. 

The children of Daniel Hemenway of Shrewsbury were —

way, was b. in Shrewsbury, Mass., Apr. 7, 1772. She came to Vt. 
in company with her grandfather, Daniel H. (who took a lively 
interest in the then new State of Vt.), in the winter of 1791, to 
visit her sister, Ruth Jenison of Shoreham, who had m. Levi Jeni- 
son some years previous, and settled in Shoreham, Vt. She 
remained in Shoreham and Bridport with friends one year, and 
then returned to her home in Shrewsbury, where, the succeeding 
year, she was preparing to go and make her home in Bridport. 
She was m. in Shrewsbury, Mass., by Rev. Jos. Sumner, her 
pastor (who had christened her in infancy), to Benj. Miner Jr., a 
farmer of Bridport, Feb. 17, 1793. Mr. Miner was a native of

father after the Revolutionary war (1786). They were among 
the early settlers, when the people passed from point to point by

APPENDIX. 



A letter has been received by the compiler from Mrs. P. E. M: 
Bennett of Bridport, Yt., granddaughter of Silas Hemenway, and 
great-granddaughter of Daniel Hemenway of Shrewsbury. It 
contains many facts of much interest in relation to our com- 
mon ancestor, which were handed down to her by tradition and 
gleaned from the early records of the town of Bridport, of which 
she has made diligent search. As it was received too late for use 
in its place in the Record, free use is made of its material as con- 
firmatory of, or additional to, the record already given. From it 
we learn that Daniel Hemenway went to Bridport at a very early 
date. He was very much pleased with its location between the 
mountains and the lake. He liked its soil and the heavily timbered 
pine lands, and thought the country complete, all save its water, 
which he was sure would make its appearance by springs coming 
to the surface as the land became more settled. It proved to be 
so, and it was often remarked, *'He guessed just right." He used 
his influence to get many of his old neighbors to settle there. He 
was displeased with the religious government of that day which 
Mrs. M. writes, ''partook somewhat of the old blue laws of Con- 
necticut." About the time he was building the meeting-house in 
Worcester, he and others formed themselves into a company to go 
into that country and live as ''Brethren" and make their own 
church rules, but the revolutionary war prevented their coming 
till after peace was declared and the tlnited States constitution 
established. Then their grievance was righted and they had the 
privilege of worshiping according to their own faith. 

In the spring of 1766, as appears from the Vermont Historical 
Magazine, Col. Ephraim Doolittle, with twelve or fourteen others, 
among whom were Daniel and Jacob Hemenway, went from 
Worcester County, Mass., to Bridport, and built a log house and 
lived as one, family the first year, the men taking their turns in 
cooking. Some of the party left on account of fever and ague, 

11 



78 APPENDIX. 

but Col. Doolittle spent most of his time there, though he did not 
take his family there till 1783. There is recorded a deed, dated 
May 20, 1766, signed <'Ephraim Doolittle, Worcester, Mass.," con- 
veying to Daniel Hemenway ''House right," six rights of land for 
the sum of six pounds. These rights were originally granted to 
Nathan Baldwin, William Craford, Noah Jones, Jacob Hemen- 
way, Nahum Willard, and Samuel Brewer, by King George III., 
under seal of the Province of New Hampshire, ''in the town 
ship of Bridport, situate on the Wood Creek or South Bay waters, 
on the east side thereof, near Crownpoint and Ticonderoga Forts, 
which townships of lands are now in New York. The said 
Ephraim Doolittle having received deeds of release from the said 
original grantees." 

Mrs. Bennett also finds on record deeds in which Daniel Hem- 
enway conveys the original right of Nathan Baldwin to Jacob 
Hemenway, yeoman, of Barre, Worcester county, Mass., con- 
sideration six pounds, dated Aug. 2*2, 1783. Also under the same 
date the right of Jacob Hemenway to Asa Hemenway, yeoman. 
Also others of the rights to Vashni Hemenway and to Daniel Rand, 
gentlemen of Cheshire, State of New Hampshire. 

The following is the form of the deeds: " Know all men by these 
presents, that I, Daniel Hemenway of Shrewsbury, in the Common- 
wealth of Mass. Bay, house right, for and in consideration 
of the sum six pounds, lawful money, to me in hand paid, before 
the delivery hereof, by Samuel Hemenway of Grafton, in the' 
County and Commonwealth aforesaid, house right, the receipt 
whereof I acknowledge, have given, granted, bargained and sold, 
and by these presents, give, grant, bargain, alien, convey and con- 
firm to him the said Samuel Hemenway, his heirs and assigns, 
all my right and claim to the right or share of land of which Wil- 
liam Craford was the original grantee in the township of Bridport, 
County of Rutland, and State of Vermont," etc. The charter of the 
town of Bridport, given Oct. 9, 1761, contains sixty-four names as 
grantees, the name of Jacob, but not of Daniel, being among them. 
At a meeting of the proprietors of the towns of Bridport and 
Shoreham, duly warned and held in Clarendon, April 28, 1783, to 
choose oflBcers, make arrangements for dividing the lands accord- 
ing to charter, for laying out roads, and devising means to pay for 
surveys, Daniel Hemenway was chosen treasurer, also chosen as 
one of a committee "to settle with proprietors their rights by 
survey and appraise improvements and to carry out matters 
according to charter." 



APPENDIX. 79 

Mrs. Bennett writes: *' Great-grandfather must have owned 
land aside from those shares he bought of Col. Doolittle. There 
were some of the acre lots west of our Common thslt he used to 
own. My grandfather's land, which he had given him by his 
father, was in Shoreham, and was sold to Aaron Lawrence since 
my remembrance. Also some of the acre lots in Shoreham were 
his. I think the one where old Doctor Needham used to live, on 
the north side of the Common was one of his formerly. There may 
be other records here of him, in some shape, but I have only looked 
in those of the very oldest books. My grandfather Silas Hemen- 
way made arrangements with your grandfather (Samuel Hemen- 
way) to make my mother's furniture. He made her loom, bed- 
steads, a chest with drawers, chairs, and a cute little round table, 
which stands on one standard with three scroll feet. The table 
has a joint so as to turn up aside of house, or, turned around, will 
fit in- a comer. I have this table and think very much of it, as it 
was my mother's only table when she and father began house- 
keeping in February, 1793." 



We add to this a record of the death of Truman T. Birchard, 
at his home in Shoreham, Yt., Nov. 11, 1880, after a severe and 
protracted illness. (See p. 52.) 

Also, of ^ the death of Mrs. Sally Hurd Chipman, at the home of 
her son, Silas W. Chipman, in Warsaw, Ind., Dec. 24, 1880, aged 
nearly 90. She was buried beside her husband in Shoreham, Ver- 
mont. (See p. 75.) 

Also, of the birth of a daughter of George W. Whidden, Dec. 
22, 1880. (See p. 69.)
