ROGER AMADOWNE. 

The name of Boger Amadowne first appears at Salem, Massachusetts, 
in 1637. 

^'Att a meeting the 25th. of the 10th. moneth, 1637 being present 
Mr. Endicot, Mr. C^nnant, John Woodbury, John balch, Peeter Palfry, 
Jefry Massie, William Hathorne. It is agreed that the marsh & meadow 
Land that haue formerly layed in comon to this Towne shall now be ap- 
propriated to the Inhabitants of Salem, proportioned out vnto them ac- 
cording to heads of their families — 'To those that haue the greatest num- 
ber an acre thereof & to those that haue least not aboue have an acre & to 
those that are betweene both 3 qrters of an acre, alwais provided & it is 
agreed that none shall sell away thier proportions of meadow, more or 
lesse, nor lease them> onto any aboue 3 yeares, vnless they sell or lease 
out their bowses wth their meadow." 

Then follows a list of 224 names, in which list Boger Amadowne is 
the ninety-eighth and receives half an acre. 

He is next found at Weymouth in 1640 as shown by the following 
from the town record: 

**Sara daughter of Eoger Amadowne bom 10 (6) 1640." 

The next mention is at Boston, in the! list of births: 

**Iiida dau. Boger and Sara Amadowne 27, Feb. 1643.". 

During his residence at Weymouth, the Bev. Samuel Newman wa» 
pastor of the church. In 1643 Bev. Newman, with a part of his congre- 
gation, formed the settlement at Behoboth, near the Bhode Island line. 
In 1648 Boger Amadowne appears at Behoboth, being the forty-third 
on the list of proprietors. The town of Behoboth was afterwards di- 
vided and the older portion took the name of Seekonk. 

The history of Behoboth, by Bliss, says: 

The town was built in a semi-circular form around what is now 
Seekonk common, with the meeting house and parsonage in the center. 
The semi-circle opened toward the Seekonk or Pawtucket river. This 
circle was afterward called the ring of the town. 

Boger Amadowne 's house was at the northeastern end of the semi- 
circle as shown by the following extract from the Behoboth records: 

' ' Oct. 18, 1660. William Sabine at a town meeting lawfully warned 
did agree with ye town to make ye mill bridge across Palmer's river 
and ye highway as far as ye foot of ye hill by Goodman Amadowne 's, 
and to maintain it for forty a year, for twenty years and to have 4th. 
of his pay ready down." 

This location is about one mile north east of the church in the 
present town of Seekonk. 

On July 18, 1648, the records of Behoboth show there was granted

THE AMIDON FAMILY. 



"Roger Ammidowne a house lot between Walter Palmer's house lot 
and the mill/' 

By order of the Plymouth Court he was granted a tract of land 
June 3, 1662, and under date of June 7, 1665, the following: 

* * Fifty acrees of land is granted vnto Roger Amadowne, lying att a 
place called the Ten mile river, being a prte of that land which captaine 
Willett bought, lying on the bounds of Rehoboth; the said fifty acrees 
of land, with all and singulare the appurtenances belong therevnto, to 
appertaine to him, the said Roger Annadowne, to him and his heires 
assignes forever." 

In 1658 he was granted more land and in 1671 had a grant of one 
hundred acres. 

In 1657 his name appears in the list of freemen and in 1658 he 
first served on the coroner's jury, in which capacity he served sev- 
eral times. 

Nothing is known of his first wife except that her name was 
Sarah and that she died at Rehoboth, June 20, 1668. He married for his 
second wife, December 27, 1668, Joanna, daughter of George and Jane 
Harwood. She survived him and died July 1, 1711. 

The records do not give the date of his death but state that he 
was buried November 13, 1673. He probably died November 11, 1673, 
as the records show the following report of the coroner's jury: 

'*Wee, whose names are vnderwritten, being impannelled vpon a 
corrowner's inquest by the honored Mr. James Browne, Assistant, to sitt 
vpon the corpps of Roger Annadowne, deceased, occationed by some late 
striffe between his wife and him, hearing all euidences, pondering all 
cercumstances, and viewing the corpes, wee find noe wound nor bruise 
that might hasten his death.

"11th nouember, 1673, this verdict aboue written was giuen in 
vpon oath before mee. James Browne, Assistant." 

The following is found showing the settlement of his estate: 

"Wheras, Roger Amnadowne, of Rehoboth, late deceased, died 
intestate, for the more equall disposing of his estate, it is mutually con- 
cluded by and between Joanna Annadowne and John Coblech of

Hon. George Davis in **A Historical Sketch of Sturbridge and 
Southbridge," says "The writer in the former part of his life recol- 
lects very well hearing the elderly men speak of Mr. Ammidown as a 
man of notoriety and influence, and whose opinion was highly appre- 
ciated. More than once we have heard the following anecdote related of 
him : "At ^me period in the earlier part of his life, he was the orderly 
sergeant of a militia company. It was thought expedient to memorial- 
ize the existing government, in some matter deemed important. To 
whom shall we apply to make the draft of the instrument to be sentf 
was a matter of consultation among the o£S.cer8 of the militia. The 
captain of the company, to which Mr. Ammidown belonged, proposed 
his orderly sergeant. Some surprise was manifested. It was con- 
cluded that Sergeant Ammidown should make the attempt. The ob- 
ject of the proposed memorial was stated to him. Mr. Ammidown, 
having procured pen, ink and paper, and making his lap, covered with 
his leather apron, his writing desk, went to work, and soon produced 
a document which exactly met their views." This instance is 
related to show his early aptness as a ready writer. We are informed 
by our venerable friend, Dea. John Phillips, of Sturbridge, who waa- 
well acquainted with Mr. Ammidown, that he was a man of extra- 
ordinary abilities. In important questions his judgment was highly 
valued. He speaks of him as a legislator, having few superiors in 
correct and comprehensive views. As a ready writer his pen was 
freely and profitably used in the legislature. Although not a very 
ready debater, he would frequently baffle those who were more 
learned, and more gifted in speaking. He was fond of collisions of this- 
sort, as an occasion of pleasantry. A rude attack would receive such 
a retort as could not be comfortably enjoyed. ' ' 

The Hon. E. D. Ammidown has furnished us some additional particu- 
lars respecting his grandfather, Caleb Ammidown. As he was exten- 
sively known, and influential, although moving in the common walks 
of life, his business talents, as well as other traits of character, are 
worthy of remembrance. During the revolutionary struggle he was 
actively engaged in discharging various important trusts. After the 
close of the war, he represented the town of Charlton several years. 
This was one of the trying periods in our history. The state of affairs- 
was such as required the strongest and most discreet men. Mr. Ammi- 
down was one of the men who took an active part in bringing order 
out of confusion, and adjusting the discordant elements. 

He was appointed to survey the confiscated lands, including a 
large part of Charlton and that section of country. Among his papers 
\!7ere to be seen numerous plans and maps of lands surveyed and lotted' 
out by him. 



THE AMIDON FAMILY. 19 



He was a member of the Court of Sessions, a Court whose juris- 
diction embraced many important matters within the limits of Wor- 
cester County. The duties of exciseman required an annual inventory 
of the ^oceries sold in the county, and the imposition and collection 
of a specific tax on the same. This was a very laborious office, includ- 
ing, as it did, the whole county of Worcester. It is evident that Mr. 
Ammidown was a working as well as a calculating man. In summing 
up the traits of his character, the most prominent were: Firmness, 
resolution, integrity, perseverance and keen foresight. It was not 
easy to impose upon him by any ingenious pretexts or specious preten- 
sions. 

Mr. Ammidown was plain in his dress, in his manners and in con^ 
versation, but not vulgar or profane. When such men as Mr. Ammi- 
down are entrusted with public concerns, there is little danger but 
they will be managed with discretion."

down, Esq., son of Gal«b Ammidown. The writer enjoyed his acquaint- 
ance and frequent manifestations of his generous and benevolent heart. 
He Was ever ready to assist and encourage young men, if they were dis- 
posed to assist themselves. Mr. Ammidown was one of the most 
efficient men in procuring the incorporation of the town of Southbridge, 
and in laying a foundation for its future growth and prosperity. He 
was equally efficient in building up and sustaining the religious society 
to which he belonged. The religious and civil state of things, when 
the town was incorporated, was in its infancy, and required such men 
as Mr. iAmmidown to place it on a stable basis. To effect so desirable 
an object, he spared no pains. He was ever ready with an open hand, 
cheerful heart, and active personal efforts to promote any enterprise 
which promised utility. He with his brother Luther furnished in 1811 
the first wool manufactured for sale. A large proportion of the 
expense of erecting the Congregational Church in Southbridge was 
borne by him. In sustaining stated preaching he was equally liberal. 
He never rushed precipitately into any project in contemplation, but 
examined carefully and keenly bearings and consequences, before he 
was ready to act. When his mind was made up he was not easily 
diverted from his purpose. He carried out in life that firmness of 
character which descended as a legitimate inheritance. Honest, high- 
minded and possessing enlarged views, his controlling aim was to 
promote the best interests of the community. Mr. Ammidown married 
a daughter of Ebenezer Davis. By this connection his {property was 
considerably augmented, thereby enabling him to enlarge his business, 
and to be more extensively useful. Mr. .^^nmidown was always actively 
employed, either in his own concerns or in those of a public nature. 
It is not improbable that he taxed his physical and mental powers too 
severely, and thereby shortened th« period of his usefulness. He dis- 
charged the duties of legislator, of a magistrate, and frequently of 
an arbitrator in settling the disagreements of parties. In all these 
trusts, no one doubted his ability or honesty. In his social habits, 
cordial, agreeable and edifying, his company was always desirable. 
Without any disparagement to others, it may truly be said, that no 
man in Southbridge was exerting a more energetic and salutary influ- 
ence than Calvin Ammidown, up to the time he was cut down in the 
midst of his usefulness. Mr. Ammidown lived to witness the early 
and promising growth of the town of which he was eminently one of 
its fathers. He was, in person, a little above the ordinary size, possess- 
ing prominent features, and a countenance indicating firmness and intel- 
ligence. In his death, all felt, especially in the community where he 
was intimately known, a great public and private loss had been sus- 
tained. Mr. Ammidown died January 5, 1825, in the 36th year of his 
age."

have been favored in having his own way. That it did not spoil him 
shows he inherited good sense. At 14 years of age he was partner 
with Larkin, aged 23, son of John, and Luther, aged 20, son of Luther, 
in trade, 1810, in the *' boy's store *' as it was then styled, a one-story 
store 18 feet wide by 50 feet in length which stood in the north side of 
the main street in Southbridge. On the opposite side of this street 
Calvin Ammidown had built what was known all its existence as 
' * The Columbian Building. ' ' In this he and his family lived while he 
had a store on the street floors. John, Luther and Calvin Ammidown 
continued business with each other to mutual satisfaction all their 
lives, but their sons saw best to separate their interests early in their 
youth, and continued the condition for the rest of their lives.

provided for their children's future. The so-called Dresser Cotton 
Mill was erected in 1813, the Columbian Factory in 1821 (destroyed 
by fire 1844, December 6), the Central Mills in 1838, and the first 
cotton works were established at Westville, three miles up the river, 
in 1812. All these at one time Ebenezer D. operated. Born and 
Drought up on a farm, but being of a slender constitution, he was not 
able to do hard work, and following his inclinationjs, employed himself in 
lighter mechanical matters of various kinds. He was ingenious and 
able from his native capacity to readily understand the intricacies 
of machinery. As said before, his father was a pioneer in the cotton 
manufacture in Southbridge, and at the time of his death had begun 
the business on a small scale. At his decease the prosecution of this 
new enterprise devolved upon the son, then a comparatively young 
man, in connection with Dr. Samuel Hartwell and Moses Plimpton. To 
this responsibility Mr. Ammidown applied himself with the energy 
and good judgement which always characterized his later efforts, and the 
result was the permanent establishment of the leading manufacture of 
the town. Mr. Holmes Ammidown in his history of Southbridge says 



THE AMIDON FAMILY. 69 



that to Mm more than to any other person the place is indebted for 
the development of this industry. But the natural scope and bent 
of Mr. Ammidown's mind were by no means satisfied with a success 
in this direction. When railroading became established, in it he dis- 
cerned at once an instrumentality which could be successfully used 
not only to increase general prosperity, but to benefit and build up 
his native town, in whose welfare he ever felt a special interest. He 
therefore entered heartily into that subject, acted as one of the board 
of commissioners about 1838 to locate and settle land claims on the 
Norwich and Worcester road; was foremost in projection of the Norfolk 
County (now New York, New Haven and Hartford) road and for a 
time its president, and was the main instrument in obtaining a 
charter for the Southbridge and Blackstone road. The new entrance 
into the citv of Boston at Summer street over the South Boston flats 
was a scheme of his devising and was carried ooit mainly through his 
persistent efforts. And the land where now stands the Union Depot 
in Boston would have been bought by the railroads at a cheap 
price had his plans been carried out in 18o9. In both houses of the 
State Lesrislature, to which he was repeatedly elected, he labored 
resolutely and perse veringly to effect his purpose. Nearly thirty 
years of his later life were chiefly devoted to this work, and the end 
was gained at last. He had reason to hope that he could see the fruit 
of his labor, but was not permitted this happiness. He died at 5:30 
p. m., November 21, 1865, and on November 9, 1866, communication 
by rail between Southbridge and Boston was opened. He had a mind 
far-reaching in its range and therefore specially competent in the man- 
agement of public affairs. As a magistrate, in which capacity he 
acted for a long time, doing much business, he was eminently success- 
ful and his decisions were rarely reversed by the higher courts. In 
private life Mr. Ammidown was most estimable, a true and wise friend 
and adviser, and possessed of a warm heart. Socially he was quiet 
and unobtrusive, and like the rest of that branch of his grandfather 
Davis' family ever too full of real work for much that was light and 
trifling, and though he had a keen sense of the ludicrous »vA a 
fund of dry wit, he was considered a sedate man. Says Mr. Linus 
Child, **He was always calm and collected, even in the most trying 
circumstances; was seldom off his guard and never manifested undue 
excitement. The undisturbed calmness with which he met the last 
hours of his life, when in perfect possession of all his faculties, he 
held his last interview with his family and gave hid last counsels 
and directions, only indicated the same quiet and well-balanced mind 
which he had so constantly displayed throughout all the varying scenes 
of a long and useful life.*.'
