Chart I. begins with the children of Oratio Dyer Clark and Laura 
Ann King, his wife. These children each bear the numeral "I," and 
form the starting point from which each line of ancestry has been 
traced. Their parents are numbered "2," their grandparents "3," and 
that system is carried back until the extreme traceable point of each 
line is reached. In the body of the book, each line shown on the chart 
is fully historied. Chart II. is a partial record of the ancestors of the 
celebrated Anne Hutchinson, ancestress of Mr. Clark through two 
distinct lines, so let it be remembered that every progenitor recorded 
on Chart II., or in Part II. of the body of the book, is twice an ancestor 
of his, and where, as in many cases, the record shows three, four, five, 
or more descents from one man, that number must be doubled. The 
ancestry of Anne Hutchinson has been charted by the compiler, a very 
difficult task. When finished, it measured sixteen by six feet, and 
was too large to be printed by any press in the United States. Chart 
II. is a portion of that immense chart and is merely a key to the record 
embodied in Part II. of the book. Cross-references throughout the 
volume will assist the reader to follow back all the lines to their origin. 

No record has been printed in this work as a fact that has not been 

fully investigated and verified. A partial list of references has been 

included in the back of the volume, and should question arise as to 

the authenticity of any portion of the work, its verity can easily be

Note. Oratio Dyer Clark was descended from this family by virtue 
of two lines of his ancestors, the Greene and the Clarke families. The 
lesser numerals designating the generations under this heading refer 
to the Clarke co'nnection, and the greater numbers to the Greene line. 
Thus Richard Dyer was the eleventh generation back from and includ- 
ing the children of Oratio Dyer Clark in the Clark line, but twelfth 
generation back when traced through the Greene family. 

11 and 12. Richard Dyer, or Dyre, of Wincanton, Somersetshire, 
England, died in 1623. His son — 

10 and 11. John Dyer, or Dyre, of Roundhill, Somersetshire, had 
issue — 

9 and 10. George Dyer, of Bratton Seymour, Somersetshire, who 
died after 1623 and before 1639. His son — 

8 and 9. William Dyer was born in Somersetshire, 1587, and died at 
Newport, Rhode Island, in 1676. In December, 1635, he joined the 
church in Boston of which Mr. Wilson was pastor, and during that 
month on the 20th day, his eldest son, Samuel, was baptized there. On 
March 15, 1637, William, with others, signed a remonstrance defend- 
ing Mr. Wheelwright whom the courts had condemned, and on Novem- 
ber 20, William and the other signers were ordered to deliver up all 
guns, pistols, swords, powder and shot in their possessions, as he and 
his friends had been "seduced into dangerous errors" by Mr. Wheel- 
wright and Mrs. Hutchinson. On March 7, 1638, he was in Ports- 
mouth, and with eighteen others, signed a religious compact, the same 



day being elected Town Clerk. In I 639, William was still Town Clerk 
of Portsmouth, and June 5 of that year he was one of several appoint- 
ed to apportion the land in the new town of Newport. 1640 to 1647, 
inclusive, he was Secretary of both Portsmouth and Newport, and in 
1648 was General Recorder for the Colony. 1650 to 1653, inclusive, 
he served the Colony as Attorney General. In 1 653, he went to Eng- 
land with Roger Williams and John Clarke, their object being to obtain 
the revocation of Governor Coddington's power, and returned the 
same year leaving his wife, Mary, in England. May 18, 1653, he was 
commissioned by the Assembly as "Captain William Dyer, Comman- 
der in Chief upon the sea" against the Dutch. In 1655, he was Free- 
man. Mary Dyer, William's wife, having spent five years in England, 
returned to Rhode Island in 1657 via Boston. During her absence 
from America, she had studied and accepted the belief of the Society of 
Friends, and, such belief being objectionable to the Boston Puritans, 
Mary was detained in that city and imprisoned. William Dyer ob- 
tained her release "bound in great penalty not to lodge her in any town 
of the Colony, nor to permit any to have speech with her in the jour- 
ney." For some time after this Mary Dyer remained quietly in New- 
port, but in 1 659, the spirit of unrest again seized her, and she returned 
to Boston where she was tried and condemned to die in company with 
Marmaduke Stephenson and William Robinson. On the scaffold, 
with the rope around her neck, she was reprived. On October 3 1 , 
1659, she addressed a letter to the magistrates which caused them to 
again banish her to Rhode Island. The spirit of unrest was still strong 
within her, and from that colony she sailed to Long Island and from 
there back to Boston, where May 31,1 660, she was taken before Gov- 


ernor Endicott who sentenced her to be hanged the following day. 
This time there was no reprive, and marched to the gallows escorted 
by soldiers, drums beating to prevent her utterances being heard by 
the people, Mary Dyer became a martyr to her belief. June 1 , I 660 
is the accepted date of the execution, but some accounts place the time 
one day later. William Dyer was Commissioner in 1661 and 1662; 
Deputy in 1664, 1665 and 1666; and General Solicitor in 1665, 1666 
and 1668. He was Secretary to the Council in 1669. On March 27, 
1666, he was prosecuted for killing a mare, presumably the property 
of William Coddington. Dyer's Island was named for him, and Octo- 
ber 18, 1669, Governor Coddington testified that the Island had been 
granted to William Dyer. On July 7, 1670, he deeded to his son, 
Henry, the north end of his farm with the provision that if Henry had 
no sons, the land was to go to William's eldest son, Samuel, at Henry's 
decease, Samuel to give the daughters of Henry £150 therefor, the 
eldest daughter to have a double portion. August 5, 1670, William 
deeded all of Dyer's Island to William Dyer, his son, a free gift. It is 
not known when William senior married his second wife, but in 1681 
the records of the Town Council of Newport mention her dower, and 
it is known that she was still alive six years after that date. William 
died before December 24, 1677, when Governor Benedict Arnold 
made his will and mentioned William Dyer, Sr., "now late deceased."

(Misquamicut), relating to which he signed certain papers on March

pointed Conservator of the Peace. He took the oath of allegiance to 
Rhode Island on May 20, 1671, and in 1680 his estate was taxed 15

The record of this family belongs properly with the section of

For convenience, however, it forming the connecting link between 
the old and the new worlds, the compiler has placed it with the Euro- 
pean pedigrees in Part II., which see. 


7. Thomas Nichols, of Nevv^port, Rhode Island, Freeman 1664; Jury- 
man June 7, 1671, with forty-seven other settlers, was granted 5,000 
acres of land, the settlement of which formed the town of East Green-

Court in 1679, 1685, 1686, 1690 and 1698. In 1680, he was taxed 
£1-9-7, a fairly large tax for those days. The last existing record of 
him was written November 5, 1 708, when he deeded land to his son, 
John. This deed was the last of a series of three for land in East 
Greenwich, the first dated November 17, 1689, the second November

8. William Reynolds, of Providence, Rhode Island, w^ith tv/elve 
others, complained to the Colony of Massachusetts of the ** insolent 
and riotous carriage of Samuel Gorton and his company," and later, 
January 30, 1644, he, and others of Providence, testified as to the 
outrage committed upon the Warwick settlers by Massachusetts.

home-share, together with three small pieces of meadow. The same 
day, he sold six acres on Fox's Hill to William Field. April U , 1 645

9. Richard Rathbone, the first of this family in America, settled in 
Massachusetts. He was, presumably, of the Liverpool family, and 
was born in England in 1574. He married Marion Whipple, sister of 
Captain John Whipple, the former being mentioned in the will of the 
latter made at Ipswich, Massachusetts, December 16, 1616, and pro- 
bated January 28, 1618. 

1. William, a minister, who was living and preaching in 
Vermont in 1 630. He was b. I 598. 

2. Joseph, b. circa 1600; left no issue. 

3. Thomas, b. 16??; left no issue. 
(8) 4. John, b. circa 1610. 

8. John Rathbone, born circa 1610, came to America with his par- 
ents. He married, about 1633, and had one son: 

7. John Rathbone, born 1 634, who married on Block Island, Mar- 
garet, daughter of Tristram Dodge. See Dodge record. John died 
on Block Island in 1 702, and was survived by his wife and eight chil- 
dren. In 1660, when the purchase of Block Island from Governor 
John Endicott, Richard Bellingham, Daniel Dennison and William 
Flawthorne was considered, John Rathbone Vv'as one of the sixteen 
who met at the home of Dr. John Alcock, August 1 7th of that year, 
and decided on the purchase. As one of the sixteen o-\vners, he set- 



tied on the island in April, 1661. In 1664, his was one of the names 
presented to the Rhode Island Assembly by Captain James Sands, 
of Block Island, for admission as Freeman, which list was accepted 
on May 1 st. He was Deputy to the General Assembly in 1681, 1 682, 
1683 and 1684, and was a member of the Grand Jury in 1688. His 
first office was that of Overseer of Highways in 1676. September 
21, 1679, John and his wife, Margaret, deeded to their son, John, 
their " Messuage and Mansion house " on Block Island, same to revert 
to the other heirs of John, Sr., if John, Jr., left no issue. His will 
was dated February 1 2, 1 702, and was proved October 6th, of that 
year. In it is mentioned his house at Newport, a negro slave, pewter 
plate, etc.

2. John, b. at Roxbury, Mass., 1658; m. at Rochester, 
King's Province, Rhode Island, by Samuel Fones and 
Richard Smith, Justices, November 11, 1686, Ann 
Dodge. Austin states that this marriage occured Jan. 
10, 1688, and Cooley, in his " Rathbone Genealogy," 
gives Nov. 1 1, 1686 as the date. Nov. 1 1, 1686 is the 
correct date, extracted from the original records at New 
Shoreham. Cooley also states that Tristram Dodge w^as 
the father of Ann, but it seems improbable that John 
married his mother's own sister, though same may have 
been the case. Ann was John's second wife, he having 
married, first, June 20, 1 680, a lady whose identity is 
not known. He resided on Block Island.

6. Thomas Rathbone was born in Massachusetts, in 1657, and moved 
to Block Island with his parents, where, August 21, 1685, he married 
Mary, daughter of Nathaniel and Joan Dickens. (" New Shoreham 
Marriages," page 1 7.) May 5, 1 696, he was made Freeman of Block 
Island, and in 1700, 1703, 1704, 1705, 1711, 1 7 I 7 and 1731, served 
as Deputy to the General Court. In 1 702, he was Lieutenant of the 
militia company, and in 1 730, was Captain. His will was dated 
November 16, 1733, and was proved June 10, 1734.

5. John Rathbone was born at Exeter, Rhode Island, May 29, 1705. 

He married, June 1, 1726, Experience . The marriage is noted 

on page 32 of the " New Shoreham Marriages." The original is im- 
perfect and almost impossible to decipher and it is probable that the 
wife's name really reads " Patience York," which was the name of 
John's wife as supplied by living descendants of that couple. John's 
will is recorded at Exeter. In this document, he calls his wife " MarJ^" 
Mary may have been a second wife, or that may have been a nick- 
name preferred by John to the longer Patience. The following chil- 
dren are all recorded in the printed copy of the New Shoreham Records 
as children of Thomas and Experience, but a certified copy made from 
the original record. May 12, 1915, by Edward P. Champlin, Town 
Clerk of New Shoreham, reads as follows, and corrects the printed 

"John Rathbun (son) of Tliomas, and Experience married 
June ye first 1726 and they had a daughter born named Elizabeth 



born ye 27 day of July 1 728 and they had a Son born unto them

1 742, married, June 20, 1 780, Benjamin Clark, of North Kingston, 
Rhode Island. Her birth record (" New Shoreham Births "), accord- 
ing to three different copyists, calls her Paysbener, Payschence and 
Patience. On page 26, " Exeter Marriages," wherein her marriage 
is recorded, she is called Patience. See Clark record. 


8. Tristram Dodge, first of the family in Rhode Island, came from 
New Foundland as is certified to by the following record: 


"To All Persons to Whom This Testimony Shall Appear": 

"Know ye, I, Simon Ray of Block Island, being eighty-one years 
of age and now upon oath do testify and declare that on ye first erect- 
ing and settleing of s'd Block Island there was some undivided land 
reserved by ye first purchasers for to accomodate fishermen for pro- 
moting of a fishing trade, and Tristram Dodge Sr. a fisherman came 
from New Foundland and ye freeholders willing for to settle him on 
s'd Island, gave unto him said Tristram Dodge three acres of land unto 
him and his heirs forever which land ordered by freeholders for to be 
measured unto him said Dodge situated and being on ye South East of 
ye Harbor that now is joined to the land of John Rathbon." 

"And unto ye truth of this testimony I set to my hand 

SIMON RAY, Warden." 
"Block Island, Feb. 28, 1718-19." 

Descendants of Tristram's grandson, David Britain Dodge, have 
carefully preserved records which state that the sons of Tristram fol- 
lowed him to Block Island in 1 667, coming from the north of England, 
near the River Tweed. Irlstram was made Freeman May 4, 1664; 
was Sergeant in 1676, and died, intestate, in 1 7 1 9 or 1720.

7. Margaret Dodge married John Rathbone. See Rathbone record. 
Ann, Margaret's sister, according to the " Rathbone Genealogy," 
married John Rathbone, Jr. It is certain that Ann did marry, Novem- 
ber II, 1686, a John Rathbone (See "New Shoreham Records"), 
and that John must have been the son of John and Ann's sister, Mar- 
garet, a most curious state of affairs. 


7. Nathaniel Dickens, of Providence, Newport, and New Shoreham, 
Rhode Island, married, first, Joan Tyler, widow, and, second, Sarah 

, who, after the death of Nathaniel in 1692, married, second, 

Thomas Brown. Sarah died in 1723. Records of Nathaniel are few. 
July 27, 1650, and August 12, 1 650, he sold land in Providence 
where he was then living. In 1655, he was made Freeman, at Provi- 
dence and about 1660, moved to Newport. May 8, 1671, he served 
on the Jury at Newport and February 28, 1677, he sold to certain 
Hebrews the land now included in the Jewish Cemetery in that city. 
Mis will was dated October 18, 1690, and was proved January 16, 
1 723. He was living on Block Island at the time of his death but -v/hen 
he moved there is not known.

8. John Pearce, mason, (so called always by genealogists to distinguish 
him from another John Pearce, son of Richard) was born in 1 632, tra- 
ditionally in Cornwall, Britain. Just when he entered Rhode Island is 
not known. The earliest record of him was made January 5, 1666, 
when he took the freeman's oath. He resided on Prudence Island, 
about fifteen miles from Portsmouth, and there his descendants contin- 
ued to dwell for many generations. His first purchase of land was made 
April 1 4, 1 668, from William Cory, a house and thirty-eight acres. His 
birth year is computed from testimony supplied by him on May 7, 
1673 concerning the death of one Rebecca Cornell at which time he 
called himself forty-one years of age. He was one of the original 
forty-eight owners of East Greenwich, the land granted to him Octo- 
ber 31, 1677, which property, January 12, 1678, with the permission 
of the Assembly, he disposed of to Henry Matteson. He served the 
Colony twice only in official capacity; first, March 16, 1685, as jury- 
man; second, March 5, 1686, as coroner's juryman at the house of 
James Sweet, Jr., on Prudence Island. On February 23, 1691, he 
purchased from John Greene, of Warwick, 420 acres in Natick and a 
meadow near there, which property he and his wife, Mary, deeded 
August 23, 1691 to their son Daniel, he to have possession at the 
death of his father. His will was dated September 23, 1 689 and was 



proved April 26, I 692. His wife, Mary, surname not known, was 
executrix and residuary legatee; John, the elder son, received a cow, 
and his father's gun; Daniel received a mulatto boy; and Mary, his 
daughter, wife of Robert Hill, acquired a negro boy "George." Mary 
Pearce, wife of John, made her will on September 17, 1711, and that 
document was proved October 8, 1711. Daniel Pearce, her son, was 
executor, and the estate excepting only a negro woman, and 40 shil- 
lings for the poor, was divided into thirds, one portion to John, one 
to Daniel, and the other less five shillings which was to be paid to Mary 
Sweet (her daughter, who married, second, after the death of Robert 
Hill, James Sweet), was to be held by Daniel and supplied to the said 
Mary at his discretion should she need it, all undisposed of at the time 
of her death to be divided among her seven children by her first hus- 
band. Daniel received, also, a negro woman, Betty, but was ordered 
to pay £1 to his brother in lieu thereof.

7. Daniel Pearce, of Prudence Island, married twice, but unfortunate- 
ly, no record of his first wife remains. His second ■wife was Elizabeth 
Tabor, whom he married December 1 3, 1 703, and both he and she were 
still living in July, 1728, when Daniel Jr. gave bond to the town of 
North Kingston to support his father and the latter's wife Elizabeth, 
and to furnish them with the use of a horse. The original record of 
this marriage reads "Daniel Pears and Elizabeth Tabor both of Pru- 
dence Island married by Giles Slocum asst. December 13, 1703," 



(Portsmouth Marriages). The name "Tabor" is certainly correct, 
ahhough other v/orks deahng with the family invariably copy Mr. 
Austin's error (in his Gen. Diet, of R. 1.) and give the name as "Tuck- 
er." Daniel v^^as a butcher by trade. He took tlie freeman's oath 
June 16, 1692, was constable in 1694, 1695 and 1697; Deputy in 
1698, 1701, 1705, 1720, 1721 and 1731; Assessor, elected September 
1 . 1707; Justice of the Peace in 1 708, 1 709, 1710 and 1711; and in 
1 724 was Overseer of the Poor, his last public office. In 1 700, he pur- 
chased 760 acres in Narragansett and in 1 721 he and his wife Elizabeth 
deeded 400 acres in Aquidneset to their sons Daniel and John, of 
Portsmouth (i. e. Prudence Island). In 1 723, he was living in North 
Kingston, where he and his wife gave a deed of mortgage for £650 to 
Colonel Samuel Brown, of Salem, 350 acres being the security. Here,

7. Jonathan Hill was born on Prudence Island in 1657. He died 
September 5, 1731. The year of his birlh is reckoned from his state-

thirty-eight." December 24, 1698, he was living on Prudence Island, 
being one of a number of parties to a suit. He owned land in Cowset,

I 3. Richard Greene. His son — 

12. Richard Greene, of Bowridge Hall, Gillingham, Dorsetshire, Eng- 
land. His son — 

1 1 . Richard Greene, of Bowridge Hall, was father of — 

10. John Greene, surgeon, born in 1597, who married, November 4, 
1619, Joan Tattersall. She died at Conanicut in 1 643, where she had 
taken refuge when the Massachusetts troops under Captain Cooke 
made their raid on the inhabitants of Shawomet, now Warwick, Rhode 
Island. John's second wife was AJice Daniels, widow, and his third 
was named Phillip (probably Phillipa), who survived him, and who, 
in a deed, August 11, 1 668, mentioned her "granddaughter Phillip 
Greene." Alice Daniels, his second wife, held land in Providence as 
early as 1637. Phillip was born in 1601, and died March 10, 1688. 
It is probable that John Greene was born at Bowridge Hall, the seat of 
his ancestors. He resided in England at Salisbury, Wiltshire, and his 
first marriage took place in St. Thomas' Church in that city. The 
baptismal records of all of his children appear in the register of that 
church. Henry E. Turner, in his work "The Greenes of Warwick in 
Colonial History" states that John was the son of Peter Greene, of 
Aukley Plall, Salisbury, but later investigations proved this incorrect, 



and the authentic pedigree has been printed above. John Greene 
sailed in the ship "James," from Hampton for Boston, April 6, 1635, 
and landed at the latter place with his wife and five children on June 
3rd of that year. He went first to Salem, but August 1 , 1 637, he was 
in Providence, where, having spoken contemptuously against the mag- 
istrates, he was held in 100 marks bail to appear before the quarterly 
court. September 29, 1637, he was fined ^20, and commanded to 
keep without the jurisdiction of the court under penalty of further fine 
and imprisonment. March 1 2, 1638, Roger Williams deeded to John 
Greene a parcel of land. John was one of the founders of the Baptist 
church in Rhode Island, one of the twelve men who organized it. In 
November, 1 642, he purchased of an Indian, Miantonomi, the land call- 
ed Occupassuatuxet, which property remained in the possession of his 
descendants until it was sold in 1 782 to John Brown, of Providence, 
whose descendants still live on the property. From the same Indian, 
January 12, 1643, John and twelve others purchased for 144 fathoms 
of wampum (Indian shell money ctrung on skin cords) the tract of land 
called Shawomet, now Warv/ick. September 1 2, 1 643, Pomham and 
Socconocco, Indians, complained of unjust treatment accorded ihem by 
John and his companions and the Warv/ick settlers were ordered to ap- 
pear before the magistrates of Massachusetts. The Warwick men re- 
fused, denying the power of the Massachusetts courts and soldiers un- 
der Captain Cooke were sent to bring them before the authorities. All 
were captured but John Greene, and were imprisoned until March, 
1644. John Greene, Samuel Gorton and Randall Holdcn sailed to 
England from New York in 1 644 to obtain redress for their wrongs, 
but were unsuccessful, and Greene and Holden returned to America, 
landing in Boston September 13, 1646. John was Comm.issioner in 



1654, 1655, 1656 and 1657. He took the freeman's oath in 1655. He 
died at Warwick, in 1 658, and his will was proved January 7, 1 659.

had but one wife, Anne, daughter of William Almy, of Portsmouth, 
who died May 17, 1709, aged 88 years. In 1651, he was elected 
Commissioner from Warwick, which office he held until I 659, when he 
was elected Assistant and continued in that capacity until 1686, hav- 
ing been elected every year with two exceptions, for 27 years. He 
was again assistant in 1 689, and in 1 690 was elected Deputy Gover- 
nor of Rhode Island, holding that office until I 700. In I 65 1 and 1 652

1 0. William Almy, born 1610, was at Lynn, Massachusetts, in 1631, 
where, June 14, he was fined eleven shillings for taking the canoe 
of a Mr. Glover without permission. Three years later, July 1 , 
1634, he was fined ten shillings for neglecting to appear at court when 
summoned, and was admonished to appear at the next court with 
an inventory of the goods he had received from one Edward John- 
son. During I 634, or early in 1 635, William returned to England, but 
his stay there was short, for he returned to New England in 1635 on 
the ship "Abigail," with his wife Audry (aged 32), his daughter Ann 
(aged 8), and his son Christopher (aged 3). William's age at that 
time was given at 34. On March 1 , 1 636, having won a suit and ob- 
tained judgment against David Johnson, he E.greed, on receipt of five 
nobles from Widow Johnson and five nobles from James Ludlam, to 
settle for that amount. On the same day, one Robert Way was or- 
dered to serve William Almy "till he hath satisfied the sum of £l 1 1." 
On April 3, 1637, William and nine others at Sandwich, were given 



liberty to select ground sufficient for the use of sixty families, and 
from that time until 1642, he resided at or near Sandwich. Decem- 
ber 4, 1 638, he was fined eleven shillings for keeping swine without 
rings in their noses, an ancient custom still in vogue to prevent root- 
ing. April 1 6, 1 640, he had a grant of Q]/z acres of land, and Decem- 
ber 7, 1641 , a calf belonging to him, then in the possession of Robert 
Bodfish, was attached to satisl}^ a suit unsettled when he left Sand- 
wich. June 22, I 642, is the last record of him in Massachusetts, and on 
that day he disposed of his lands in Sandwich to Edward Freeman and 
went to Rhode Island, where, November 1 4, 1 644, he obtained a 
grant of land on Wading River. In this Colony, he led an unfined 
existence and prospered. He sold land there to Richard Bulgar in 
1656, January 5, and was made freeman in 1655. He served on the 
jury in 1656, and was of that bodj'- in 1658. He was Com- 
missioner in 1656, 1657 and 1663, and died in 1676. His will 
was dated February 28, 1676, and was proved April 23, 1677. By

9. John Sayles, of Providence, Rhode Island, born circa 1633, married 
Mary, daughter of Roger Williams and his wife Mary Barnard. Mary 
Williams was born in August, 1633, and died in 1681. John Sayles 
died in the same yec.r. Records of John are numerous, but the most 
important only are recorded here. He took the freeman's oath in 
1655; served ai; Commissioner in 1655 and 1 659; was Town Treasurer 
in 1639 and 1660; Town Clerk in 1653 and 1657; Warden in 1658; 
served on the Grand Jury in I 669 and 1671, and was fined twenty shil- 
lings for failing to attend the sitting of 1677, forfeit recorded May 7th 
of that year. In 1669, 1670, 1671, 1674, 1676, 1677 and 1678, he 
was Deputy to the General Court, and in 1 670 and 1 67 1 was a member 
of the Town Council. He owned much land, his first purchase of 
record being made January 27, 1651, from John Throckmorton, a 
house and Jot in Providence. On May 12, 1652, he purchased land 
near West River from Ralph Earle. I he name of his wife's father is

12. Roger Williams, Rector of St. Albans, April 30, 1583, Vicar of 
St. Peters March 1, I 592, nuncupative will made June 26, 1619 and

daughter of William Asheton, Viciir of Meldreth, Diocese of Ely. 
Alice died April 3, 1613, and on June 7, of the same year, Roger mar- 
ried second, Affradosa, or Aphrodozn, widow of William Moore, gen- 
tleman, of St. Albans, and daughter of Alexander Zinan. The records 
of the F^arish of St. Albans state that Roger was buried "10 November 
1626," but he must have died before January 2, 1626. the date his 
will was proved. There is not the 'lightest doubt but that the two 
records refer to the one person. The existing records, well studied, 
have convinced the compiler that the Rev. Roger Williams was the 
father of . 

1 1. James Williams, of London, miCrchant tailor, will dated September 
20, 1620, and proved November 19, 1621. He married Alice, daugh- 
ter of Roger Honeychurch. Alice's will was dated August 1, 1634, 
and therein she styled herself "of St. Sepulchers, without Newgate, 
London." This document was proved January 26, 1 634, and is of pe- 
culiar interest, as it mentions "son Roger now beyond the seas," and 
"his wife and daughter," referring to Mary, Roger's wife, and to Mary, 



his daughter.

10. Roger Williams, born about 1600, was living in 1629 at High 
Laver,, England. Roger was the greatest of New England's 
pioneers, and his history has been set forth by many writers. A 
mere outline of his life i-. given here. His wife was Mary Barnard, 
of whom little is known other than that her death occurred after 1 676. 
In 1621, Roger was a scholar in Sutton's Flospital, London, and July 
7, 1625, he entered Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he received 
the degree of Batchellor of Arts in January, 1627. On December 1 
1630, he embarked on the ship "Lion," at Bristol, bound for New 
England, and landed at Boston on February 5, 1 631 . Governor Win- 
throp mentioned his arrival, and in the record, which is still preserved, 
styled him a "godlpy minister." April 12, 1631, he was in Sah 



minister to the congregation there. During the following four years 
he was in both Salem and Plymouth, but in 1635 the General Court 
sentenced him to banishment and decided to return him to England. 
In January, 1636, a messenger was sent to Salem to apprehend him, 
but he found on arriving there that Roger had left several days before. 
Roger obtained from Massasoit a grant of land on the east bank of the 
Seekonk river, and here began the building of a home. Governor 
Winslow advised him that he was still within the bounds of the Ply- 
mouth colony, so, to avoid trouble with the authorities, with five com- 
panions, he embarked and landed on "Slate Rock" where he exchang- 
ed greetings with the Indians. From there, he travelled to a spot on 
the Moshassuck river where he settled and founded the town of Provi- 
dence in Rhode Island. On March 24, 1 638, he received a deed from 
Canonicus and Miantonomi for lands on the rivers called "Moashau- 
sick and Wanaskatuchett," the site on which he had already settled. 
In 1 639, he was baptized by Ezekiel Holliman, and in turn he baptized 
Ezekiel and others. In 1642, he was appointed to visit England and 
secure a charter, which he did, sailing by way of Now York, writing 
on the voyage his "Key to the Indian Languages," and on September 
17, 1644, having successfully performed his mission, and having re- 
ceived a safe conduct through Massachusetts, he landed at Boston. 
He made his waj'- from, there to Providence, being met on the Seekonk 
river by fourteen canoes containing his neighbors of Providence. 

In November, 1651, he again visited England, this time with John 
Clarke, and returned to Providence early in the summer of 1 654. He

Note — Most of the following record of the family of King was taken 
from an old manuscript written years ago by a member of the family, 
who ends his valuable record with the following statement: 

"I have recently learned from Don Alonzo King, son of Henry 
(No. 3) that it Vi'as handed down to him by his father (Phineas King, 
No. 4) that John of Northampton was a son of Jolm, who was Secre- 
tary of Ireland under the reign of Queen Elizabeth of England and 
this Secretary John also had a son hy the name of Edward and that 
this Edward was a very prominent young man; was a classmate in 
college with the poet John Milton, contested with Milton for some 
prize in college, was successful in winning it." 

"Edward was afterwards drowned in the Irish sea at the age of 25 
years. His death was the subject of a poem by Milton entitled Ly- 
cidas, which is to be found in Milton's w^orks." 

For the authenticity of the traditional record, the compiler cannot 
answer, but the following account of the family is correct, each detail 
verified at its original source.

others, purchaced the Pocasset lands for £1,000, and Thomas' share 
was one part of the total thirty. August 28, 1 680, he and his wife 
Sarah sold land in Dartmouth to Thomas Ward, of Newport. Janu- 
ary 14, 1681, styling himself "of Providence Plantation, in America, 
Taylor," he sold to Joseph Anthony, of Portsmouth, his share in the 
Pocasset lands. From 1691 to 1714, he lived at Little-Compton, and 
owned and operated a wind-mill there. March 2, 1692, he v/as at 
Tiverton, Bristol County, Massachusetts, on which date the town was 
organized, and he probably moved there in 1 696, but was in Boston 
in 1 700. He probably moved back and forth from Little-Compton 
to Tiverton several times, being at the former place at various dates, 
as attested to in the land records, between times at the latter where 
he also was recorded. April 22, 1720, he sold 53 acres of land at 
Tiverton to Job Briggs, and from that time until 1727 when he was 
in Dartmouth, no record of him exists. The inventory of his estate, 
filed June 16, 1733 by his widow, Sarah, amounted to £245, and in- 
cluded clothing, two old bibles, eight silver spoons, two silver cups, 



three linen wlieels, two woollen wheels, cows, calves, swine and bees.

many of his descendants now reside in that State. His will was made 
by the Town Council, May 31, 1671, from testimony furnished by 
those to whom he had made his wishes known. He was interred in 
the Friend's burying ground in Portsmouth.

The English Ancestors 


Oratio Dyer Clark 

traced through 




In section I. of this work is set forth the manner in which Oratio 
Dyer Clark was descended by two lines of his ancestry from Anne 
Hutchinson. See Dyer pedigree. To make the matter very clear, 
the attached chart is herewith given. In the Hutchinson pedigree fol- 
lowing, the numbers are recorded beginning w^ith Anne as the eighth 
generation back from the children of Oratio Dyer Clark, tracing 
through their grandmother, f''hoebe Pearce. Were this not the case, it 
would be necessary to carry two sets of numerals throughout, which 
would lead to confusion. Edward Dyer, seventh generation back in 
the Pearce line, was the brother of Anne Dyer, sixth back in the Clarke- 
Clark line.

Part I. 

!{■ f •¥ V- 

Anne (Marbury) Hutchinson, wife of William Hutchinson, Nos. 
9 and I 0, whose record see. 

The best and truest account of Anne Hutchinson was written 
by John Denison Champlin, Esq., and, as it cannot be improved upon, 
it is printed verbatim herewith. 

"William and Anne Hutchinson came to New England in the ship 
'Griffin,' landing at Boston, September 18, 1634. The family con- 
sisted of his widowed mother, Mrs. Susanna Hutchinson; a younger 



sister of Mrs. Anne Hutchinson, Catherine Marbury, about twenty- 
four years old, and William and Anne's ten children. William was 
made free with his two sons Richard and Francis, March 4, 1635, and 
he was a Representative in the General Court in May, 1635. In con- 
sequence of the Antonomian controversy Vv'hich resulted in the ban- 
ishment of Mrs. Hutchinson, he removed to Rhode Island. At first 
treasurer of the new colon}', he succeeded Coddington as judge (gov- 
ernor) on the formation in 1639 of the Newport Colony. In 1640, 
on the union of the two towns, wh.en Coddington was elected gover- 
nor, William Hutchinson was chosen one of the assistants. He died 
in Newport in 1642, and his widovs^ removed soon after, with part of 
her family, to Eastchester, New York, where she met her fate the fol- 
lowing summer in an Indicm insurrection." 

"So many errors have crept into circulation in regard to the place 
and details of Mrs. Hutchinson's death that a brief account seems nec- 
essary. The 'Cyclopaedia of American Biography' and the 'Interna- 
tional Cyclopaedia' make the site of her house 'near Stamford,' and 
Woodrow Wilson's 'History of the American People' calls it a place 
on Long Iskmd.' Richman, the latest historian of Rhode Island, cor- 
rectly follows Brodhead in his identification of the true site, but accepts 
the common error that 'she and all her family, save one daughter 
(sixteen persons) were murdered.' In regard to this daughter, too, 
who became Mrs. John Cole, he says: 'She was the ancestress of Thom- 
as Hutchinson, the last Royal Governor of Massachusetts.' One is 
tempted to ask, on reading this, why was not Governor Hutchinson's 
name Cole." 

"The 'Memorial History of Boston,' is alike inexr.ct in describing 
Mrs. Hutchinson as 'falling with all her family save one child in an In- 



dian massacre;' Brodhead, too, kills 'all her family save one, and care- 
lessly calls that one a 'granddaughter,' while the 'English Dictionary 
of National Biography' makes the sole survivor a 'son.' Charles 
Francis Adams, usually ext\ct, gives a more precise account in his 
'Antinomianism,' but oddly enough, makes the date of the massacre 

"Other instances might be cited, but these are enough to show 
the general inexactness of many of our v/ell known authorities on a 
subject of easy investigation. The truth is that only five of the ten 
children (then living) who accompanied Mrs. Hutchinson to New 
England perished with her and that she left numerous descendants 
besides the children of Susanna Cole." 

"The site of Mrs. Hutchinson's house and the scene of her mur- 
der is in what is now knov/n as Pelham Bay Park, within the limits 
of New York City, less than a dozen miles from the City Hall Not 
far from it, beside the road, is a large glacial bov/lder, popularly called 
'Split Rock' from its division into two parts, probably by the action 
of frost aided by the growth of a large tree, the stump of which sepa- 
rates the parts. The line of vision of one looking through the split 
towards the Hutchinson River at the foot of the hill will very nearly 
cross the site of the house." 

14. William Marbur5^ cf Girsby, LJncolnshire, married Anne, daugh- 
ter of Thomas Blount. See Blount record. Their .'■on: 

1 3. Robert Marbury, of Girsby, married Katharine , who died 

August 11,1 525, of land., in Lec'ke and 1 lemin-by. Robert's 


will, dated July 28, I 545, was proved SepLember 28, 1 545. In this 
instrument, he mentioned but one child: 

1 2. William Marbury, one year old when his mother died, therefore 
born in I 524, who married Agnes, daughter of John Lenton, Esq., of 
OldWynkill. Their third son: 

II. Francis Marbury, a clergyman, removed, about 1605, from Al- 
ford to London, where he was Rector of St. Martin's Vintry October 
28, 1605, of St.Pancras February 29, 1607-8; and of St. Margaret's 
January 15, 1609-10. He married, first, Elizabeth Moore, by whom 
he had three children. His second wife, whom he married in 1 589, 
was Bridget, daughter of John Dryden, Esq., of Canons Ashby, 
Northamptonshire. He died in 1610-1 i. His nuncupative will was 
made June 25, 1609-10, and was proved February 14, 1610-11. By 
his second wife he had thirteen children, second of whom was: 
10. Anne Marbury, baptized July 20, 1591. who married, August 9, 
1612, William Hutchinson. See Hutchinson record. 


In the Marbury pedigree, it is shown that William Marbury mar- 
ried Anne Blount. Under the heading "Counts of Guisnes," Part III., 
is given the ancestry of Sir Robert and Sir William Blount, brothers, 
twenty-seven generations back from the children of Oratio Dyer 
Clark, from both of whom he is descended. The history of this dis- 
tinguished family has been fully investigated by Sir Alexander Croke, 
Kt. of Studley Priory, Oxfordshire. The account of the Counts of 
Guisnes, in Picardy, is the result of his labors. Earlier writers, Beth- 
am, Kimber, Dugdale tmd Wotton, believed that the Blounts were des- 


cended from the Blondi or Biondi, in Italy, derived from the Romein 
Flavi. This supposition was supplied by a member of the family in 
1 727, a matter of tradition, and, as usual in such cases, tradition was 
in error. John Denison Champlin, in his "Ancestry of Anne Hutch- 
inson," records the Blount line. From Sir Robert le Blount (27) to 
Sir Stephen (23) his pedigree agrees with the following record, but 
from thence onward, the pedigree differs until William (21 ) is reach- 
ed. In this space, one generation only according to Sir Alexander 
Croke, Mr. Champlin has placed two extra generations, and alters the 
name of Sir Robert (22) to Sir William, of Gladston, Gloucestershire. 
Two extra Williams are also added, and William (21 ) is styled Lord 
of Belton. Had not Robert (22) married Isabel of Odinsels and 
thereby acquired Belton, William (21 ) could not have borne that title 
of courtesy, and yet Robert (22) is not recorded by Mr. Champlin. 
Curiously enough, after wandering through several generations of 
which the writer can find no record, Mr. Champlin comes back to the 
correct line and ends properly with Anne (14). He, however, makes 
Isolda de Montjoy the second wife of John (19) instead of his first 
wife, and credits her ancestry to Sir Walter (18). 

11. Sir Robert le Blount had | 27. Sir William le Blount 
command of the Conqueror's l youngest son of Raoul, third 
ships of war, and is styled, in the I count of Guisnes (28), brother 
"Doomsday Book," "DUX NA- | of Sir Robert le Blount (27).

28. Ralph de Buron, Lord of several manors in Nottinghamshire and 
Derbyshire, ancestor of the celebrated Lord Byron, and of 
Oratio Dyer Clark, is the first connected link of this family 
chain. What relationship he bore to the before mentioned Ernies de 
Buron is not known, but it is probr.ble that he was a, brother or a son 
of the former. In the survey of England made in the twentieth year 
of the reign of William the Conqueror, it is shown that Ralph de 
Buron held the mr.nors of O^cin'.une, Calun, Hochehale, Rampestune, 
Lamccote and Cotegrave, all in Nottinghamshire, and Westune, Hor- 



slei, Denebi, Halun and Hereby, all in Derbyshire. At Horslei (nov/

three folio volumes, printed in I 766. It is probdile, from a genealogi-

house in Europe is authentically descended from it, and while doubt 
has been cast upon the first thirty-six generations (Nos. 88 and 89 to 
Nos. 53 and 54,) the remaining generations down to Oratio Dyer 
Clark are indisputably authentic.
