Early History of Paine Family. 

The surmane of Paine, howerver spelled, indicates a 
Norman origin. Rollo or Rolf, Duke of Normandy, 
in the Ninth Century became a convert to Christianity. 
The people of his Dukedom, however, outside of the 
larger places, resisted the new religion, as is usually the 
case in all innovations, which first find favor in the cities, 
expanding gradually throughout the country. Now the 
word "paganus" meant originally and solely, a dweller in 
the country as distinguished from one who dwells in 
the city." So general was the refusal at first of the in- 
habitants of the country to accept the Christian religion, 
that to be a "countryman," came to mean an 
" unbeliever, " and the word "paganus" to express a 
double meaning. The name coming to be thus gen- 
erally adopted, applied to all who refused the Christian 

When William the Conquerer went from Normandy 
to England he was accompanied by many of this class of 
people: and so the term became incorporated into the 
English language with its new meaning. About this 
time the habit of using surnames became prevalent, and 
as people usually chose something with which they had 
previous connection, so the name of "Paganus" came 
into common use as a family designation. It gradually 
changed its form however to Pagan, Pagen, Payen, 
Payne, Payn and Paine. 

The name is found wherever the Norman exodus 
pervaded. In Italy it assumed the form of Paganini 
or Pagani. 


In connection with this name, Bardsley says: "At 
the close of the Norman dynasty it had threatened to 
become one of the most familiar appellations in England 
and thus while in our dictionaries, 'Pagan' still represents 
a state of heathenism, in our directories it has long been 
converted to the purpose of Christianity." 

No history of the Paine family would be complete 
without a reference to two men, who made the name a 
famous one in the early history of England. 

The first of these is "Pagen of Domesday" 1041-1086, 
and the second is Hugh de Payen, a crusader and founder 
of the Order of Knights Templar. For the following 
extract we are indebted to the "Paine Genealogy" by 
Mr. Albert W. Paine, of Bangor, Maine. 

"When William the Conqueror became firmly estab- 
lished upon the English throne, he caused an inven- 
tory and appraisal of his Kingdom to be made, 
which included the names of all the land owners. Prom- 
inent among these was "Pagen", who is reported as 
holder of lands either "of the King or others," in at least 
sixteen different counties, and to the number of thirty- 
eight or more holdings in all ; and the significant remark 
is added by the commissioner of returns, that "he could 
go whither so ever he would". 

These holdings were so located in different counties, 
that, leaving Hants or Hampshire by the Isle of Wight 
where the New Forest was located, he could travel north 
to "the wash", on the North Sea; thence west across the 
island to the Irish Sea; thence south to the British 
Channel; thence east to the place of starting, and at 
every step be in country where he owned land and con- 
sequently had right of protection. 

This was his peculiar baronial privilege, arising from 
his rank and probable connection with the king. 

He had settled in England from Normandy before 
the conquest, as is plainly evidenced by the records, and 

was consequently there to share with the "Conqueror" 
the brunt of battle and the crown of success. 

He died about the same time that the Domesday 
book was compiled in 1086, leaving Edmund, his eldest 
son and heir, to inherit his immense estate and dignities, 
as well as his favor with the king. 


Following close upon the Norman conquest of Eng- 
land come the Crusades, the first of which has a partic- 
ular importance to the Paine race. 

At its termination, the celebrated Hugh de Payen 
remained behind for the purpose of more surely securing 
its grand results. For long months he acted the part of 
guide, with others, for all such pilgrims as might need aid 
and conduct to their journey's end, and more particularly 
from the crossing of Jordan to the City of Jerusalem. 

For this purpose he organized a force adapted to the 
occasion and diligently attended to the work. In com- 
pany with Godfrey de St. Omer, he instituted an order 
known as the Templars of the Cross, the sole object of 
which was to further the great objects of the Crusaders' 
mission by protecting the Holy Places and rendering 
safe the journey of all pilgrims to the Holy Shrine. 

The original organization embraced only seven others 
besides themselves. They were both poor, but their 
undertaking was patronized by the King of Jerusalem, 
Baldwin H, who not only gave them his countenance, 
but assigned to them their lodgings in his palace, and made 
them the recipients of his personal favor and society. Of 
their poverty they made no secret, but emblazoned it on 
their seal by adopting as a device "a horse with two riders". 

From this small beginning, the order soon began to 

extend its power until it came to be the most powerful 

and opulent of all organizations, then probably existing 

in the world; controlling the fate of nations, and even 


demanding and receiving from the Pope an acknowledg- 
ment of its asserted rights. Its original organization 
was A. D. 1178, and continued to exist until 1312, nearly 
two centuries, when after five or six years of violent 
action, Philip the Fair of France, and Pope Clement V, 
succeeded in abolishing it, and appropriating its immense 
possessions to the use of the various sovereigns of the 
different nations where they were deposited. In 
Portugal, the order still exists, under the name of 
"Knights of Christ." 

The pledge of every Templar bound him to defend 
at the peril of his life the mysteries of the Christian 
faith, to perform military service beyond the seas when- 
ever called upon to do so, and "never to fly before three 
Infidels even when alone." 

During all the ages while the order had life, and ever 
since, the two original founders have been celebrated for 
their work as its originators, even after their death, as 
its peculiar protectors and guardians. 

Who Hugh de Payen was, genealogically, or to what 
line he belonged, of the numerous families now existing 
is a matter of much interest. 

That he was a Norman is very clear, for at that 
early day the name had not gone beyond the field of its 
origin, for only a single generation, or two, had then 
passed since surnames had been first adopted. His name 
too, indicates that he was the son of a father who bore 
the same name, and who lived necessarily during the 
war and reign of the Conqueror. He was too, as a 
Norman, in the Crusade, one of the soldiers or followers 
of Robert the Duke. 

The suddenness and success with which he entered 
upon his great work and organized the order and ad- 
vanced its cause, show most conclusively that he must 
have had what is often spoken of as a "good start" in 


A footman's or private's position in an army is ever 
a place not only of difificulty, but of improbability, 
from which to arise at once to eminence or favor. 

In order to do this, he must have had the prestige of 
noble birth, or other extra merit, to give him such an 
impetus as he actually enjoyed. 

Thus and thus only, could he have attained so sud- 
denly the high pinnacle of fame and favor to which he 
arrived. This conclusion is supported by the facts 
already stated with reference to his favor with Baldwin 
II, King of Jerusalem, who gave him lodgings in his 
palace, and the prestige of his high ofifice. 

From the reading of Domesday, we have seen that 
Pagen or Payen, was one of William the Conqueror's chief 
barons, on whom he especially bestowed his favors; and 
Robert, the Duke, under whom Hugh went to the 
Crusades, was the son of the Conqueror, thus placing the 
two sons (if sons they were) in direct communication 
with each other. The conclusion is certainly very nat- 
ural and probable, that Hugh de Payen, (the son of 
Payen) was really the son of him of Domesday, Edmund 
being his oldest son and heir. That he was poor, though 
thus the son of a rich father, is readily explainable by the 
fact of the then prevailing law of primogeniture which gave 
the whole inheritance to the oldest son, and left the 
younger poor, a fact of so much importance that it led in 
the days of heraldry to the adoption of a particular fea- 
ture on the coat of arms to express' it. This feature was 
the placing on the shield a Martlet, a foot-less bird, to 
indicate that the party had no land to stand on, and 
hence no use for feet. 

One of the extracts from Domesday is the following : 
"Edmund the son of Pagen, holds of the King, and Hugh 
holds of him." 

That this Hugh thus sopken of was Hugh de Payen, 
cannot certainly be determined, but the fact that his 

surname is not given, but simply his Christian name, 
rather implies that his surname was the same with his 
under whom he held, and who is related as being "the 
son of Pagen." 

This conclusion can hardly be resisted, that the great 
Crusader was the son of him on whom King William so 
abundantly showered his favors, and that it was this 
favor with King William which opened the palace doors 
of King Baldwin at Jerusalem, and gave to the poor son 
a home and the prestige of his influence and his power 
as before related. 

Coat-of-arms ; "In the compilation of all of the known 
crests of Great Britain and Ireland, by Fairbairns, 
twenty-six different ones are given to the nameof Payne." 



Six Generations of the Paine Family of Frit- 
tenden and Tenterden, England; and Gen- 
erations I and II of the Paine Family 
of Braintree, Massachuetts. 

Many surmises have been made as to the EngHsh 
ancestry of Moses Paine of Braintree, Massachusetts, 
but it was not until 1912 that the discovery of his 
ancestry and place of emigration was found by Miss 
Elizabeth French, a genealogist connected with the 
New England Genealogical and Historical Society. 
Thanks to her efforts, we have the line established back 
to "John Payn of Fyrythenden," whose will is dated 
April 12, 1463. 

By means of their wills the line is traced through six 
generations as follows : 

John Payn of Frittenden, Eng. (Gen. I, No. I), 
whose will is dated April 1463, m. Joane . 

Generation II 

Children of John and Joane Payn. 

2 Edmund. 

3 Elizabeth. 

4 Stephen. 

APRIL 1463 

After my death my feofees shall grant to Joane 
my wife and her heirs eight pieces of land and 
meadow called Cehetefeld Tweymedys, Johanmeds, le 

Broke, Gretebrodefeld, Lytylbrodefeld and Stonefeld, 
containing thirty acres of land in Ffrythenden upon the 
dens of Bubherst and Bokherst, during the life of Agnes 
my mother, to provide the said Agnes with sufficient 
meat and drink, clothing, shoes and all other neces- 
saries, if the said Agnes be willing to dwell with Joane, 
but if not then my feofees shall deliver those eight pieces 
of land to Agnes my mother during her life to provide 
those things as she pleases. At the death of Agnes my 
mother, Joane my wife and Edmund my son shall each 
of them have half of the said lands and at the death of 
Joane my wife, my son Edmund shall have them all. At 
the Feast of St. Michael next after my death my feofees 
shall enfeoff my son Edmund in my messuage at Bok- 
herst and in all my other lands meadows and gardens 
upon the den of Bokherst. to him his heirs and assigns 
forever. Except one piece of land situated upon the den 
of Bokherst called le Fyveacrys, the profits of which 
land and five pieces of land situated in Ulcombe upon the 
den of Boycote, shall go to my wife Joane until my 
daughter Elizabeth shall be married and then my feofees 
shall sell the said land and of the money pay £10 and the 
residue to my wife Joane. My wife Joane to receive the 
profits of all my lands upon the den of Peseregge until 
Stephen my son comes to the age of twenty years and 
then my feofees to deliver to him and his heirs forever 
four pieces of land containing ten acres upon the den of 
Peseregge, viz. to the highway to the south. All my 
other lands upon the said den of Peseregge to my wife 
for life and after her death to go to my son Stephen and 
his heirs forever. And if he die within the age of twenty 
years then my wife Joane to have the four pieces con- 
taining ten acres, situated south to the highway and all 
other lands upon the den of Peseregge. If both my sons 
die without lawful issue, then after the death of my wife 
all my lands to be sold and the money to be used for a 

priest to sing in the church of Ffrethyden for three years 
20£, praying for my soul and my parents' souls, five marks 
to the repair of the bad roads between Haddyscrosse and 
Stapylherst and five marks to the marriage of poor 
maids of the parish of Ffrethynden.

(From Paine Family Records. H. D. Paine). 

Tradition had assigned to Thomas Paine, whose 
name appears as Deputy from Yarmouth (Cape Cod) 
to the first General Court of the Colony of Plymouth, in 
1639, the distinction of having been the earliest known 
voyager of our name to the New England shores. His 
son, Thomas, removed to Eastham and became the pro- 
genitor of one of the most extensive di\isions of tlic 

American race of this name, one of his descendants being 
Robert Treat Paine, signer of the Declaration of Inde- 

Next in order to Thomas, founder of the Eastham 
branch of the Paine family, was William Paine, who, 
with his wife Ann, and five children embarked on the 
"Increase" at London, in 1635. 

He settled on his arrival at Watertown, Mass., but 
afterward removed to Ipswich, where he attained to 
large influence in affairs of the town and commonwealth, 
and became the founder of the "Ipswich" branch of the 
New England Paines. 

Robert Paine, a brother of the last named, came to 
New England not long after, and became also an in- 
habitant of Ipswich, Mass. 

Both these brothers were men of enterprise and 
liberality, and contributed by their wealth and example 
to the prosperity and credit of the town and colony. 

In 1635, there also came as passengers in the 
"Abigail" from London, William Paine aged 15, and 
John Paine aged 14, but of their subsequent history 
nothing definite has come to light. 

Stephen Paine, with his wife Rose, and three children, 
took passage in the "Diligence" in 1638, and came to 
Hingham, Plymouth Colony. 

In a few years he became one of the first proprietors 
and inhabitants of Rehoboth, on the borders of Rhode 
Island ; and was an active and leading man in the town 
and colony until his death and was ancestor of the 
Rehoboth branch of the Paine family. 

Feb. 6 of the same year, Anthony Paine was "received 
to be an inhabitant" at Portsmouth, R. I., but further 
particulars are wanting. 

In 1641, Moses Paine was "admitted freeman" at 
Braintree Mass., but the date of his arrival has not been 


By his will two years later, 1643, his property, which 
was considerable, and included estates at Concord and 
Piscataqua, was divided between two sons and a daughter. 

A partial record of his descendants is found in 
"Thayers Family Memorial;" Hingham, 1836. 

William Paine, in New Haven, was made " Freeman" 
and had lands laid out to him in 1647. In 1649, he was 
released from bringing his arms to church on the Lord's 
day, and lecture days, and his fine for non-attendance 
on public worship was partly remitted, on account of 
his living afar off, having a lame wife, and three young 

There was another Thomas Paine, at Dover, in 1659. 
He was constable in 1687. His will, dated 1694, was 
proved in 1700, by which it appears tha this wife's name 
was Elizabeth, and that his only son Thomas and three 
daughters, were all minors at his death. 

In the records of the Society of Friends, in Newport, 
R. I., mention is made of the birth in 1660 of Amy, 
daughter of James and Amy Paine. 

Tobias Payne, from Jamica, married in 1665 at 
Boston, Setrah Winslow Standish, the widow of Miles 
Standish, Jr. 


(From "Where American Independence Began," 
by Daniel Munro Wilson). 

"In no other community in the colony of Massachu- 
setts was the love of independence more central than in 
the North Precinct of the old town of Braintree, later 
set off and maned Quincy. Nowhere else was the right 
of self-government more tenaciously held, and no other 
spot is more sacredly devoted to freedom by the sac- 
rifices and cherished visions of its inhabitants. So 
typical in its development that C. F. Adams, the younger, 
illustrates by it the unfolding thought and institutions 

of Massachusetts; it is also renowned for anticipating 
beyond other towns the manifest destiny of the colonies. 
There the word Independence had its earliest histor- 
ical utterance, and there some of its most illustrious 
champions had their origin. 

John Adams, the great advocate of Independence, 
and Samuel Adams, the "Father of the American 
Revolution," had in Henry Adams of Braintree the same 
progenitor. They were cousins in the fourth generation 
from that "first emigrant," Henry. Though Samuel 
was born in Boston, September 16, 1722, he was so 
closely associated with the Braintree cousins and so 
allied to them in the essential qualities of character that 
it is not going too far afield to include him within that 
group of famous persons who made the annals of this 
ancient town on the South of Boston so memorable with 
their high aspirations and devoted patriotism. These 
two are commanding figures, but other men, sons of old 
Braintree and Quincy, men whose names will never be 
obliterated from the splendid page which tells the story 
of the Revolution, stood with them, shoulder to shoulder 
in the hour of conflict. We have but to name the 
Quincys and John Hancock, to indicate their high char- 
acter and achievements. Add to these Abigail Adams 
and the "Dorothy Q." who married Hancock, and there 
is presented a group of distinguished patriots hardly 
excelled by that which made famous the far larger town 
of Boston. 

In the aspirations and heroisms of that little com- 
munity of Braintree, now Quincy, was surprisingly 
manifested the genius of the American people. There, 
if it may be said of any one place. Independence began. 
Its history is on a small scale the record of the develop- 
ment of the ideals of the Republic; its great citizens in 
every critical period devoted themselves with entire 
unselfishness and telling powers to the service of the 

nation. Few towns can boast of Annals more brightly 
colored, not only with the deeds of patriots, but with the 
surprises of iromance; not only with the sturdy enter- 
prises of plain liberty-loving farmers, but with the 
debonair discourse and activities of the colonial gen- 

The writer had the pleasure of spending several days 
in the old towns of Braintree and Quincy and of visiting 
the places of historic interest, which make them a place 
of pilgrimage for all who are interested in the early 
history of our country. 

"Probably the first place visited by all tourists is a 
triangle shaped area where stand the Adams houses, 
or the birth-places of the first and sixth presidents of the 
United States. In the apex of the triangle is the John 
Quincy Adams birthplace, and beyond it and separated 
from it by only a narrow strip of lawn, is the older house 
in which his father, John Adams was born. The older 
house was built in 1681, and John Adams was born in it 
in 1735. In 1764 he married Abigail Smith of Weymouth 
and brought his bride to the newer house which was 
built in 1716 and in which John Quincy Adams was born 
in 1767. 

The older house is cared for and kept open to the 
public by the Daughters of the American Revolution: 
It is a "plain square honest block of a house, widened by 
a lean-to, of the type commonly built by the farmers 
of that period." The old Plynouth highway ran in front 
of it, and around it was the land comprising the original 
farm. The entrance to it is through a turnstile, and the 
interior of the house has been restored as nearly as pos- 
sible to its original appearance two hundred years ago. 

The kitchen is the most interesting of all the rooms, 
and contains one of the largest fireplaces in New England, 
fully eight feet wide. 


One of the articles shown is the old cheese strainer 
which belonged to Abigail Adams. 

Above the mantel is an old musket, and the walls are 
covered with fac-similes of historical documents such as 
the "Declaration of Independence" which the boy who 
was born upstairs helped to make. 

Over the kitchen is the room in which John Adams 
was born. 

This is a most interesting room, and contains a four 
poster bed, a hair trunk, and a chair which belonged to 
John Adams. 

There is also a case containing a portion of the riding 
cloak which John Adams wore, and a slipper worn by 
Abigail at the court of France. The entire house is 
furnished plainly as it must have been originally, but 
with most interesting relics of "ye olden time." 

The house adjoining, which was occupied by John 
and Abigail Adams after their marriage, is now in pos- 
session of the Quincy Historical Society. It is similar 
in appearance, and the best features of both houses are 
the doorways which are really handsome examples of 
architecture. This home like the other, is plainly but 
substantially furnished, and upon the walls are found 
extracts from letters written by Abigail Adams to her 
husband, many of them during the Revolution, which 
show her to have been a woman of most sterling qualities, 
as well as of great personal charm." 

Quite near the Adams houses, which are close to the 
dividing line between Braintree and Quincy, was origi- 
nally a lane leading to the estate owned by Moses Paine 
and his descendants. 

A mile distant is the "square," where "town meetings" 
were held in ancient times when the town was governed 
in this manner. 

"In the old New England town meeting man is 
conscious of his own sovereignty, and counts for all he 

is worth, and all business and elections are done above- 
board and by unquestioned majorities. Simple, direct, 
and democratic, this form of government is the ideal of 
free institutions, and nothing as good can be devised to 
take its place." 

It was composed partly of "freemen" who had been 
duly elected to citizenship, and had taken the freeman's 
oath, and so were entitled to all freedom in the matter 
of speech or vote. 

Adjacent to the town hall is the ancient cemetery 
which belongs to the "First Church". The names 
which have made famous the old towns of Braintree 
and Quincy are found chiseled upon the tombstones of 
this old burying ground, which is of particular interest 
to those members of the Paine family included in this 
book, for here lie the ancestral families of Paine, Bass, 
Adams, and Baxter. 

One tombstone is of special interest to all who visit 
this cemetery. 

It was erected by President John Adams and upon 
the great flat slab covering the tomb is the following 

"In memory of Henry Adams who took his flight 
from the Dragon Persecution in England, and alighted 
with eight sons near Wallaston. This stone and several 
others have been placed in this yard by a great-great- 
grandson from a veneration of the piety, humility, 
simplicity, prudence, patience, temperance, frugality, 
industry and perseverance of his ancestors, in hope of 
recommending an imitation of their virtues to posterity." 

Beside this tomb is another, where lies "Joseph 
Adams, one of the original proprietors of Braintree." 

Both the presidents, John Adams, and John Quincy 
Adams, with their wives, are buried beneath the old 
church across the street, then known as tlie "First 


Church" (Congregational), now known as "First Con- 
gregational Society, Quincy, Unitarian." 

The present stone church replaced the old wooden 
structure in which the ancestors of the presidents had 

"The new building was made possible by a gift from 
the elder John Adams. His death occured on Inde- 
pendence Day, 1836, and his body was placed in a crypt 
beneath the church portico soon after the dedication of 
the edifice. The church is a severely plain rectangle 
of granite blocks, with an Ionic porch upon the front, 
and a pediment after the manner of the old Greek 

A little farther out is the Adams mansion where 
John and Abigail Adams lived in later life, after their 
residence abroad and in the "White House." 

In this home were celebrated the golden weddings 
of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Charles 
Francis Adams. 

"Almost opposite the Adams mansion is the famous 
old house which bears the name of "Dorothy Q." 
Edmund Quincy arrived in Boston in 1633 with his 
wife Judith and two children. In 1635, there was 
granted to him and William Coddington a large stretch 
of land, on which Coddington at once built a farm 

Judith Quincy was widowed and married to Moses 
Paine, 1st. (See Paine Family) and entered upon the 
full occupancy of this house. 

Her son Edmund Quincy, the second, married Joanna 
Hoar. When her grandson, Edmund Quincy, the third, 
built a new house in 1705, he incorporated with it the 
Coddington farm-house. 

It is a very interesting house, because of its historic 
associations, and because the Coddington portion has 
been called the "most ancient structure in New England." 

The kitchen is an immense room, with a large fire- 
place and settle beside it. The room has been restored 
to its original color, and it required the labors of ten men 
for three weeks to scrape off the layers of paint which 
had accumulated during nearly three centuries. While 
only a small part of the furniture is original, it is all col- 
onial, and much of it historical. The most interesting 
thing about this old room, is the tradition that "it was 
here that the scheme of American Independence was 
first planned by John Adams, Samuel Adams, John 
Hancock, and other patriots." 

The dining room is very handsome, with white 
wood-work, a buffet filled with rare old china, an urn 
of satinwood for silver, and a fine mahogany table. 

The drawing-room is both beautiful and interesting; 
The paper upon the walls is covered with Venuses and 
Cupids, and was purchased for the wedding of Dorothy 
Quincy and John Hancock. 

This room is also fitted with fine old Colonial fur- 
niture, and in the smaller drawing-room beyond is a 
fine spinet. 

Upstairs are beautiful bedrooms, in one of which, 
Lafayette is said to have slept and upon the window of 
another are the initials J. H. which John Hancock 
scratched there so many years ago. 

This fine old mansion, which stands in tlie midst of 
beautiful grounds, is now the property of the "Colonial 
Dames" of Massachusetts, and is cared for and kept 
open to the public by that society. 

It is a matter of gratification that our family tree 
should have taken root in such an historical and interest- 
ing spot as old Braintree, and Quincy, and that our 
ancestors played a prominent part in the town which 
has gone down into history as the place "Where American 
Independence Began."

Among the emigrants from Kent County, England, 
who came to New England with the company in "The 
Castle" in 1638, was Moses Paine (with his children 
Elizabeth, Moses and Stephen), whose forebears had 
long resided in Frittenden and vicinity, among them 
Stephen Payne of Frittenden, supervisor of the will of 
Thomas Igylnden in 1497. 

The emigrant's first marriage appears in the Marriage 
Licenses of Canterbury: Moses Paine of Frittenden and 
Mar. Benison of Tenterden, virgin." 

A few years after his marriage Moses Paine appears 
in Tenterden, where the registers give the records of his 
children and his second wife. 

From the will of his father, Nicholas Paine, it will be 
seen that, with the exception of some legacies to his wife, 
daughters, and grandchildren, he left all of his property 
to Moses, who was probably at that time his only living 

Moses Paine was married ab. 1642 at Braintree, Mas- 
sachusetts, to Judith, widow of Edmund Quincy. 

He had estates at Concord, Cambridge, Piscataqua 
and other places, and was evidently a man of wealth 
and position. 

A year later he died, leaving half of his estate to his son 
Moses; a quarter to his daughter Elizabeth; a quarter 
to his son Stephen; while his wife was cut off with 
twenty shillings. 

No reason is given for this marked discrimination 
against his wife, and we can but hope that he provided 
for her during his life. 


Her maiden name was Pares, and she came to this 
country as the wife of Edmund Quincy, in 1633; two 
years after which her first husband died, leaving two 
children, both born in England. After the death of her 
second husband, Moses Paine, she married a third time, 
and became the wife of Robert Hull, whose son John 
had already married her daughter, Judith Quincy. 

The inventory of the estate of Moses Paine was ex- 
ecuted on the 30th of the 8th mo, 1643. The value 
as there estimated, amounted to £671.0.3; the debts to 
be paid out £73.5.6. The full text of the will is as 
follows : 

It is dated on the 17th. of ye 4th. mo., commonly 
called June, (according to the old reckoning which 
fixed the beginning of the year in March.) 

"I, Moses Paine, of Braintree, in New England, 
Gentleman: Appoints eldest son, Moses, executor. Be- 
queaths to Steven, my second son, one quarter of my 
goodes and lands in Braintree, Cambridge, Concord, and 
Piscataqua, in New England; a quarter of my goods 
or debts in Ould England if they may be recovered. 
To Elizabeth Paine, my daughter, one quarter of my 
goods in the forenamed places and in Ould England if 
they may be recovered. Out of the former household 
stuffe, that one chest of fine linen to be given to her; 
excepting two pairs of fine and strong sheets to be given 
to son Moses, and two pairs to son Stephen, strong and

Lastly, the moiety and one-half of my estate, goods, 
house and lands, cattle, debts, moveables and chattels,

"The marriage of Henry Adams and Elizabeth Paine 
was the first recorded on Braintree Records, (page 629). 

Both Adams and his wife Elizabeth Paine met with 
tragical deaths. In the second year of King Phillip's 
war, as is narrated at length in several histories of that 
eventful period, Adams himself, who was lieutenant of 
the town, was killed at his own door by a shot from the 
hostile Indians, Feb. 21, 1676. 

The following account of the fatal casualty that befell 
his wife, is taken from Gookin's Praying Indians. 
'The same night, the lieutenant's widow, being at Mr. 
Wilson's, the minister's house, being upon a bed 
in the chamber, divers soldiers and commanders being 
in the room underneath. Captain Jacob having a gun in 
his hand, half bent, with the muzzle upwards, be being 
taking his leave to go to his quarters, by some accident 

the gun fired and shot through floor, mat, and through 
the bed of the Heutenant's widow and slew her also." 
Though mortally wounded, she survived a week after the 
injury.' " (Paine Family Records, (H. D. Paine) p. 165).

of salt meadow, household movables, etc," and Mr. John 
Flavels works, in two volumes." 

To his son-in-law, Samuel Hayward, "ten shillings 
in money, old tenor, and no more, because of his being 
so often out of order, and discomposed in his mind." 

To his daughter, Mary Hayward, "one acre of salt 
meadow, thirty pounds in money, old tenor, besides 
seventy pounds already received." 

To the children of Hannah Nightingale, deceased, 
'■forty pounds in money, besides sixty-five pounds

"The last two children are not mentioned in any of 
the Paine or Adams genealogies, but they appear as 
children of Moses Paine in the records of the First Church 
of Braintree, page 89," as follows: "David, baptized 
March 15, 1737-8" and "Bethiah, baptized Feb. 4, 

1741-2." The fact that the records of the First Church 
at this time were unindexed probably accounts for the 
omission of the names of David and Bethiah Paine 
from the genealogies. 

In the settlement of the estate of Moses Paine, (Gen. 
IV. No. 56), we find that, "on December 16, 1763, the 
property was divided between Moses Paine, the eldest 
son, Hannah Wadsworth, Bethiah Hunt, and David 
Paine, who acted as administrator. The real estate, 
not admitting of a division, was settled upon David, he 
to pay the other heirs their shares." (See Suffolk Pro- 
bate, Vol. 62, p. 638). 

The first account of David Paine as administrator 
of his father's estate was given July 2, 1762. (See 
Suffolk Probate, Vol. 60, p. 421). 

The final account was filed Sept. 5, 1762. (see Suf-

Johnathan Webb, and Peter Adams is found in Suffolk

a gown worn by Abigail (Adams) Paine, which, family 
tradition said, "was heavy enough to stand alone."

The birth-place of David Paine is given in records 
of the Revolutionary war, obtained from the office of 
the Secretary, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as 

"David Paine, birth-place, Braintree, Mass.: resi- 
dence, Ludlow. Engaged for Ludlow:" (Vol. 74. p. 

Record of his death is found in a History of Ludlow 
(Noon) p. 180. 


The birth and marriage records of Abigail Shepard 
are found in the "Vital Records of Douglass," Mass. 
Record of her death is found in History of Ludlow, (Noon) 
p. 180. 

The first years after their marriage were spent in 
Douglass, Mass., after which they removed to Ludlow, 


In the campaign of 1757, Captain Peter Thayer's 
company marched in August at the alarm for the relief 
of Fort William Henry. In the list of privates is the 
name of David Paine. (Hist, of Old Braintree and 
Quincy, (Pattee, 1878) p. 125). 

Twenty-fourth on the alphabetical list of the twenty- 
nine soldiers first raised in Ludlow, 1775, to assist in the 
Revolution, is the name of David Paine. (History of 
Ludlow) (Noon). 

"David Paine" appears signed to a receipt for bounty 
dated Ludlow, July 1, 1781, received by said Paine for 
engaging himself to serve in the continental army for 
the term of three years to the credit of the town of Lud- 
low. (Vol. 34,84 Record Index to the Military archives). 

"David Paine" appears in a descriptive list of men 
raised in Hampshire Co. to serve in the Continental 
Army returned by Noah Goodman, Supt. "Age 40 years, 
stature 5 ft. 7 in., complexion light, hair light, occupation 
farmer. Engaged June 18, 1781, engaged for town of 
Ludlow, term 3 years." (Vol. 33, 627). — [age evidently 
incorrectly stated.] 

"David Paine" appears with rank of private on 
Muster Rolls of Capt. Eliphalet Thorps Co. Lt. Col. 
John Brooks (7th) regt, for July-Dec. 1781. Term 3 
years. Rolls dated at Phillipsburg, Peekskill and York 
Hutts. (Vol. 51, file 11). 

"David Paine" appears in a Register of Furloughs 



granted subsequently to Jan. 1, 1781, to the non-com- 
missioned officers and privates in the 7th Mass. Regt. 
commanded by John Brooks, Lieut. Col. Leave given 
said Paine by Col. Jackson, March 25, 1783, to go from 
Windsor to Ludlow for 21 days. Reported "overstayed 
one day."

monwealth of Massachusetts. 

The sword carried by David Paine in the Revolution- 
ary war, is now in the possession of Horace H. Paine of 
Palmer, Mass. 

As early as 1785, "David Daniels, David Paine, and 
John Scranton are excused from paying church rates; 
they presenting certificates setting forth their adhesion 
to the Baptist faith signed by Elder Seth Clark, minister 
of the Baptist Church at Wilbraham." (History of 
Ludlow, Mass. (Noon) p. 31). 

"Among the casualties of the time was the death of 
David Paine who was found July 2, 1807, dead at 
Burying-ground Hill, in sight of his house, having fallen 
beneath his cart on returning from the mill and perished 
by the crushing of the wheels." (Ibid p. 58). 

From the old center yard monumental inscriptions, 
Ludlow. (Ibid p. 180.) 

"Mr. David Paine 
departed this 
life July 2nd, 
1807, by a cart-wheel 
running across his breast. 
He was a friend of 
religion and piety." 
Near this, is another stone with this inscription : 
"Abigail, wife of David Paine, 
died July 20, 1834, aged 88." 

Under "Braintree Marriage Intentions," we find the 
following: "September 16, 1762, David Paine and 
Sallie Whitney." 

A little farther on we find the following: "April 4, 
1767, Sallie Whitney and Micajah Pope of Stoughton 
were married." 

It is impossible at this day to divine why the pro- 
posed marriage of David Paine, of which publishment 
was made, went no farther." However, when Sallie 
Whitney became the wife of Micajah Pope, he had left 
Braintree and in the meantime, had married Abigail 
Shepard at Douglass, Mass. 

The following instrument, dated "the seventh day 
of February in the tenth year of his Majesty's reign, 
Anno. Dom. 1770," shows that David Paine was 
called a "resident of Springfield," which at that time 
was included in Hampshire Co., province of Massachu- 
setts Bay. (This accounts for a statement in later 
years, by his son, David Paine, that he was born in 
Hampshire Co., in 1775). It is probable that at that 
time Ludlow may have been a part of the township of 
Springfield; — the word "Town" in New England being 
equivalent to township.

Jedediah Paine was a victim of the blue laws of Mass., 
and the tragic story of his death is told as follows: 

"In the last month of 1789, two young men, Jedediah 
Paine and Solomon Olds, living in the Southeast part of 
the town, started on Saturday to go to Springfield on 
business, driving an ox-team. Delayed at town until 
late, they reached the fording place at Walla Mandups 
at night. They tarried until morning light and accom- 
plished the rest of their journey. But the Sunday law 
was technically broken. An eye-witness living near the 
ford complained of them, carrying the case to the county 
magistrate, at Northampton. To this place they re- 
paired; judgment was pronounced against them, they 
to pay a fine and costs. It was Christmas day. Wliile 
coming through South Hadley, over the fields, they 
undertook to cross a temporary' pond on the new ice, 
but were so unfortunate as to lose their lives in the 
attempt. There was great lamentation at Ludlow over 

this melancholy event, and it was deemed a judgment of 
God. Great indignation was felt against the informer, 
who received half the fee." 

This took place December 25, 1789. (History of 
Ludlow (Noon) 1875, pp. 32, 33). 

Levi Paine, (Gen. VI, No. 107), b. May 12, 1773, in 
Ludlow Mass., d. May 12, 1829, at Belchertown, 
Mass,; m. Lucy Jennings. 

Residence: Belchertown, Mass. 

The following will, dated April 25, 1829, was recently 
found among some papers belonging to estate of Lemuel 
Shepherd Paine of Hamden, Ohio.

namely my just debts and funeral charges, together 
with the fifteen dollars which I set apart for gravestones

Judge David Paine, (Gen. VI, No. 108), b. Sept. 14, 
1775, in Ludlow, Mass.; d. Jan. 5, 1856, in Jackson Co., 
O.; m. March 26, 1801, in Wood Co., W. Va., to Abigail 
James (see James-Denison Genealogy No. 8) ; b. March 
17, 1777, at Preston, Conn.; d. June 15, 1832, in Jackson 
Co., O.; (Authority for m. record: Certified copy of 
marriage record from office of Clerk of Wood Co., W. Va). 

Residence: Hampshire Co., Mass., and Jackson Co., 

Among the old papers of Hon. H. S. Bundy is a brief 
biography written by him at the dictation of his father- 
in-law. Judge David Paine. "Was born in Hampshire 
County, Mass., on Sept. 14, 1775, emigrated to Con- 
necticut in 1797, resided there for two years and removed 
from there to Belpre, Ohio, in 1799. 

In 1800 removed to Muskingum County; was married 
to Abigail James on James Island in March, 1801. Re- 
moved to Virginia, three miles above Parkersburg, on 
the Kanawha River, in 1804, thence to Jackson Co. on 
the farm on which he now resides, in the spring of 1808. 

"Joined the M. E. Church, experienced religion in 
1809. Brother Cummings, an able and faithful minister 
of the gospel was then in the wilderness of which sub- 
sequently McArthurstown, Jackson, Piketon, Gallia, and 
their circuits have been formed in part." 

There is no date to this fragmentary bit of history, 
but since the death of Judge Paine occured in 1856, it 
must have been written at some time previous to that 

From the "Story of Methodism in Hamden" the 
following is taken: 

"In the spring of 1808 there came to Jackson County, 

Ohio, a man who was to have the honor in later years of 

being a pioneer of Hamden Methodism. He had, a few 

years before, left his early home in the state of Mas- 


'sachusetts to try his fortune in the new and almost 
unknown West. 

He first stopped at a point in what is now W. Va. and 
just opposite Blennerhasset Island. 

Here he did not tarry long, when, learning of the 
opportunities in the young state of Ohio, he came to this 
section and secured land at what is now known as the 
Bundy Homestead situated just north of Wellston. 

This man was David Paine, the grandfather of Mr. 
B. R. Paine of Hamden. His log cabin was the first 
dwelling house erected between McArthur and Jackson; 
and so lonely was the life in the wilds of the forest that 
he tarried only because he had resolved before locating 
here, to stay at least one year before leaving. This was 
the key to his staying longer, for by the time the year had 
rolled by, he had become somewhat accustomed to the 
solitude of the frontier, and had decided to remain in- 

His house became the early forerunner of the present 
M. E. Church. Here the hardy pioneers gathered from 
miles around to listen to the preaching of the gospel by 
the early Methodist preachers who allowed no danger 
to deter them, nor difficulty to hinder, in their God- 
called mission of love. From this society, there grew the 
class which had its first organization at Hamden, or 
Charlestown, as it was then called, about 1838." 

From Howe's early history of Ohio we quote the 
following extract: 

"In the early days Jackson County was famous for 
its salt works and men from the East came frequently 
with pack horses and carried the salt back with them in 

There being no hotels, the Paine homestead was often 
a stopping place for these travelers. 

One of the granddaughters of Judge Paine lived in 
his home when a child ; and though she did not know him 





in the days of his activity, but rather in the evening time 
of his life, has a distinct remembrance of him. She says: 

"He was a very religious man, and always spoke 
with great fervor of his Christian experience. He was 
scrupulously neat in his personal appearance, was a fine 
conversationalist, and was very well educated for those 
days when books were a luxury." 

Ministers and other travelers who were frequently 
entertained in this homestead, delighted to hear him 
talk of early times when he lived in Massachusetts and 

He always kept up an intercourse with his family in 
the East. In 1822, though before the day of railroads, 
his aged mother, Abigail Shepard Paine, came from 
Massachusetts to Ohio, and spent six years in his home. 

In 1843, Judge Paine, accompanied by his son-in-law, 
H. S. Bundy, paid a visit to his old home in Massachu- 

David Paine purchased from the government all the 
lands constituting the Paine farm, afterward owned by 
his son-in-law, H. S. Bundy. Here he spent a long and 
useful life; living to see the wilderness develop into a 
beautiful and thickly settled agricultural country, and 
the settlements of Jackson and Hamden into flourishing 
towns with schools and churches. 

When Jackson County was formed, David Paine was 
made one of the associate judges and was always known 
thereafter as Judge Paine. He was an earnest temper- 
ance worker and during his life labored constantly among 
his fellow pioneers in the cause of total abstinence. 

His was a sweet and sympathetic nature and the 
deeds of kindness shown by him and his family to less 
fortunate neighbors were many; and, though his life 
was of necessity a narrow one, compared with the many 
advantages we possess today, it was, nevertheless, a very 
useful one. 


In the home of his great-granddaughter, there hangs 
an oil portrait of Judge Paine which shows us a long, 
slender face, in which we see the earnestness and force 
of character always attributed to him by those who 
knew him well. 

The following letter, written by Hon. H. S. Bundy, 
of Wellston, Ohio, relating to the death of his father-in- 
law, Judge Paine, was for fifty years in the possession of 
Mrs. Louise (Paine) Alden of Springfield, Mass. 

Senate Chamber, 
Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 7, 1856. 
Mr. Lemuel Paine, 
Dear Uncle: 

This line will inform you of the death of your 
esteemed brother, David Paine. He died on the 5th of 
this month, at my house, at two o'clock p. m. 

I left home on Wednesday last (2nd instant,) He 
was sick when I left, but I hoped he would soon recover. 
Well, his work was done, and well done; he was ready 
to go in every particular and no doubt he is happy with 
the saints in light. My spirits are much oppressed at 
the bereavement, but humbly bow to the will of heaven. 
H. S. Bundy. 

Among the papers of H. S. Bundy was found the 
following document, signed by his father-in-law. Judge 
David Paine, the original being in possession of Mrs. 
J. B. Foraker. 

"Know all men by these presents that L David

Judge Paine was buried beside his wife in the Paine 
Cemetery near his residence. 

A few years since, Mrs. Joseph B. Foraker, grand- 
daughter of Judge David Paine, removed his remains 
with those of his wife and other members of the family,

The following interesting letter was written by 
Patrick Shepard Shearer (No. 132), to his father, Patrick 
Shearer, in 1839, while the former was visiting his rela- 
tives in Massachusetts: 

Belchertown, July 6th, 1839. 
Respected Father: 

I take the present opportunity to inform you where 

I am, and how I am getting along. After leaving Mr. 

Beaman's we went to Meadville, Pa., then to Jamestown, 

N. Y., passed Angelica, crossed the Gennesa river, passed 


Bath and Crooked lake, Senneca at Jefferson, passed 
Ithica where there is a canal, railroad, and lake. These 
lakes are from twenty to forty miles long and have steam 
boats on them. 

I went to Cooperstown on the Susqu^anna river, 
then to Chewy Valley, where we took the pike, then 
went to Albany where we crossed the Hudson. Here 
we saw the cars that run from Albany to Utica. This 
is the greatest curiosity I ever saw. They had about 
four hundred passengers, and run at the rate of twenty 
miles an hour. 

From here I went to Stockbridge, Mass., then to 
Hartford, Conn., where we arrived on the twenty- 
seventh of June, where I remained until the first of July 
at Mr. Beaman's. Then I went to Springfield, then to 
Patsbridge, where I found Uncle King's youngest daugh- 
ter. I went the next day to the Three Rivers P. O., 
where I saw Uncle and Aunt King. Aunt's health is 
very delicate; they live with their two daughters who 
married Barkers. I went next to Dr. Shearer's, then to 
Mr. Jenkse's, also to Jedediah and Daniel Paine's. 
Daniel knew me some distance away. Independence 
Day now comes in this country on the fourth of July, and 
we held ours at Thorndyke. They had a band of 
music and company of young ladies and gentlemen 
dressed in uniform, and a dinner. Uncle Shaw was there, 
but I did not see him. I saw cousin Shaw who married 
Seneth Shaw. 

Cousin Shepard Paine has the care of Daniel's part, 
and he says it is about eleven hundred dollars. Cousin 
Shepard talked with Uncle Shaw, and told him I was in 
the place. Uncle Shaw said he thought I could have 
the money now if I would make a discount. Uncle 
Joseph's property sold for about one third value. His 
silver plate and cups sold by the piece for one third of 
what the silver smith paid second hand. I intended 

seeing Uncle Shaw before I write, but fearing you would 
be uneasy I write now. I have been at Uncle Jonathan's 
and am now at Uncle Lemuel Paine's and expect to go to 
Uncle Shaw's in a few days. 

I stood the journey very well except one bad cold. 
It was very wet and cold a good part of the way. I rode 
with my overcoat on from the sixteenth to the twentieth 
of June and saw flocks of sheep not sheared as late as the 
twenty-fourth. Crops are very backward in New York, 
but look better here. Leonard Shearer is in the State's 
Prison at Boston, but not a criminal. He has charge of 
the prison and a store in Boston that his brother tends. 
My relatives appeared to be very glad to see me. Uncle 
Shaw has some of your part collected now, but I don't 
know how much. I like this country very well, though 
not as well as ours. I haven't been homesick yet though 
I intend to return as soon as I can get my money and 
not before, if it can be got. A man can travel cheaper 
in this country than in Ohio, although provisions cost 

Tell Mr. Jenks his friends are all well in this country. 
I should like to see you all when time brings it about 
that we shall meet, but I should like to see Franklin now. 
I have been through the factories, and saw the machinery 
and its inmates. The machinery- is beyond what I expect- 
ed. As soon as I see Uncle Shaw and know more about 
your business, I will write again. Cattle are very high. 
Cows are worth from forty to eighty dollars per head. 
So no more at present.

Mrs. Miriam Barrett Starr, No. 378, a great-great- 
granddaughter of David Paine, has treasured up a number 
of anecdotes of the family going back to Revolutionary 
times. She says, "I well remember my great grand- 
father, Lemuel Paine, and for eight years I took care of 
my grandmother Lucy (Paine) Graves. She told me of 
the hardships which were under-gone by her grand- 
parents David and Abigail (Shepard) Paine, and of the 
long night of anxiety and tragic death of her grandfather 
when he was found dead on a hill-side in sight of his 

After the death of her husband, Abigail (Shepard) 
Paine made her home with her son Lemuel. 

There was a picture in the house of John Quincy 
Adams, and "my great-grandfather, says Mrs. Barrett, 
used to look at it and shake his head saying, 'he was my 
second cousin, and if he was half as contrary a man as he 
was a boy, I don't see how he ever came to be president." 

Mrs. Barrett says she can distinctly remember playing 
with her great-grandfather, and how he used to go walk- 
ing with her, or sing her to sleep. It was my fourth 
summer she says, that he went to visit his son Jedediah, 
at Princeton, lUinios, and was taken ill, and died there.

When two years of age, she removed with her parents 
to Jackson County, Ohio. She was educated at Mus- 
kingum Academy, now Marietta College, at Marietta, 

This Academy deserves particular attention because 
of its history — a brief sketch of which appeared recently 
in connection with Marietta College. From this the 
following extract is taken: "It is well known throughout 
the state that Marietta is the oldest town in Ohio and 
the seat of the first government of the Northwest Ter- 
ritory. It is not so widely known that higher education 
in that territory began here. The New England people 
who settled Marietta were strong believers in education. 
The presence in the town of a high grade Christian 
College is no accident but the direct outgrowth of the 
efforts and sacrifices of those pioneers to give their 

children the best educational advantages. Only two 
years after the close of the long Indian War which had 
absorbed resources and energies of the settlers, measures 
were taken to supplement the common school training 
with the higher classical learning. 

In 1800 the Muskingum Academy was opened in a 
building just north of the Congregational church. The 
classics were taught by David Putnam, a grandson of 
General Israel Putnam and a graduate of Yale, 1793. 

His descendants still live in the city and his son was 
one of the founders of the College. This Academy was 
maintained for a third of a century under various pre- 

In 1830 Rev. Luther G. Bingham established the 
Institute of Education, some of whose departments used 
for a time the old Muskingum Academy. Two years 
later this was taken over by a corporation and renamed 
the "Marietta Collegiate Institute and Western Teachers 
Seminary". In 1855 the same corporation received a 
new charter with enlarged powers under the name of 
"Marietta College."

"Lemuel Shepherd Paine was only six months old 
when his parents, David and Abigail (James) Paine, 
removed to Jackson County, Ohio. Shepherd Paine, as 
he was familiarly known, lived with his parents until 
he was nineteen years of age, when his father proposed 
to send him to the Ohio University at Athens, Ohio. 

This proposal he met by asking his father to give him 
the two years remaining of his minority, and allow him 
to take care of himself. This was conceded, and he 
thereupon took a lease of his father upon uncleared land, 
taking the crops for improvements. This he followed 
until about 1832, when he purchased part of the land 
upon which he lived until his death. 

Soon after his marriage be built the brick house still 
standing on the hill just west of the town of Hamden, 
where his children were all born and reared. 

Lemuel Shepherd Paine was as truthful and as honest 
a man as ever lived. He obeyed literally the apostolic 
injunction "Owe no man anything and provide things 
honest in the sight of all men." 

He possessed a strong intellect, highly endowed by 
nature, early cultivated by such facilities as were then 
available. His subsequent reading and mode of thought 
enriched by experience guided by unusually sound judg- 
ment led him into exceptionally few mistakes or blunders 
in theory or practice. His almost unbroken line of suc- 
cess in business, led him naturally to distrust the judg- 

ment of others, hence he supervised all his own affairs; 
personally adopting his own methods after careful con- 
sideration, and which uniformly eventuated in success. 
In early life he selected farming and stock raising as a 
business and his fine stock farm of a thousand acres was 
well known in that section of the state. Adhering 
constantly and persistently to this one business, never 
attempting speculations outside, the legitimate and 
almost certain outcome of which was the acquiring of a 
large fortune which he left unencumbered at the time 
of his death." (Obituary of Lemuel Shepherd Paine). 

In personal appearance he bore a striking resemblance 
to his uncle Lemuel Paine. (See photograph). 

Elizabeth (Roby) Paine was much revered and beloved 
by her family and friends: A woman of great dignity, 
of exalted character, and high purpose, the influence ex- 
erted by her must be a lasting one. 

Practical, capable, and full of energy and ambition, 
her household affairs were ably administered, and al- 
though at the head of a household which would have 
taxed the capacity of most women to the utmost, yet 
she always found time to gratify her literary taste, which 
was excellent: She was always well read, and well in- 
formed concerning the questions of the day. She also 
possessed great artistic ability, as is shown by the beau- 
tiful specimens of embroidery done by her in the earlier 
years of her life and the fine examples of wood carving 
and china painting which she took great pleasure in 
executing during the last ten years of her life, and which 
are the highly prized possessions of her children. 

Elizabeth (Roby) Paine lies beside her husband and 
two of their children in the cemetery at Hamden, Ohio.

make them conformable to almost every kind of bus-

This most interesting old book, though yellow from 
age, is in perfect condition and the ink is as bright as the

It is probable that the original was a printed volume, 
but that owing to the great difficulty of procuring books 
at that day in Ohio, Thomas D. Paine had carefully 
copied it for his own use.

Sarah (Paine) Hurst was a member of the M. E.

organization largely to the efforts of her father. Her 
marriage occured before the introduction of railways, 
and the wedding journey from Jackson to Ross County 
was made on horseback. 

That sentiment played a pretty part in those early 
days, however, is evidenced by the story that as the wed- 
ding party crossed the ford at Richmondale, the water 
was strewn with flowers by friends of the bride. A happy 
omen, and one that was destined to fulfillment; for the 
author who visited many times in childhood in the home 
of "Uncle Nelson" and "Aunt Sally Hurst" remembers 
it as a most delightful one abounding with comfort and 

In this home, seven children grew to manhood and 
womanhood, each imbued with a spirit of reverence for 
their parents and love for each other, resulting in an 
atmosphere of harmony that is rarely found. The fun-

had lived for fifty-three years. A beautiful tribute was

Remarks: At the age of fifteen the death of her 
mother placed Caroline Paine at the head of her father's 
household, and although so young she manifested great 
judgment and devotion. She was educated at the "Sem- 
inary" in Marietta, Ohio. Throughout her life, Caroline 
(Paine) Bundy was noted for her "good works". Of a 
philanthropic nature, she interested herself in caring for 
the poor of her heighborhood, and her influence for good 
was felt by all who came in personal contact with her. 

Her husband, Hezekiah S. Bundy, was for many 
years called the "political sage" of southern Ohio; and 
his services to his state were numerous. In 1S48, he was 
elected to the state legislature and again in 1850. In 
1855, he was elected to the state senate. In 1860, was a 
presidential elector; In 1864, he was elected to con- 
gress and again in 1872. He was e.xtensively engaged in 
the furnace and mineral interests of southern Ohio, and 
was owner at one time of the Latrobe, Keystone and 
Eliza furnaces, with vast tracts of coal and ore lands. 

In 1872, he was one of the first two lay delegates from 
Ohioat the Annual Conference of the Methodist Episcopal 
church that convened at Brooklyn, New York. 

Mr. Bundy was again elected to congress in 1893. 
He was a Republican and one of the founders of the 
Republican Party. He held advanced views on all public 
questions; in some instances, years ahead of his party. 
An advocate of temperance in all things, bringing his 

personal habits in line with the truths he taught, he was 
a living example of sobriety. (Obituary of H. S. Bundy). 
His personal magnetism was so great that wherever 
he was known he had a large number of warm personal 
friends and admirers; and when "Wellston's Grand Old 
Man", as he was called, passed away, the public schools 
and business houses were closed upon the day of his 
funeral service. The funeral oration was delivered by 
Bishop David H. Moore, a personal friend of Mr. Bundy, 
and it was found necessary to charter a special train to 
accommodate the people among whom he had spent a 
long and useful life, and by whom he was so devoutly 
loved and honored.

Joseph McKinniss lived in a large brick house just 
north of Hamden on the McArthur road. The house is 

still standing and in good state of preservation ; and was 
noted as being the first house in that section, to have 
hand carving used in the ornamentation of the mantel 

He was the grandson of Charles McKinniss who was 
born near Bona Bornia, Scotland, in 1722, and was im- 
pressed into the British Army in 1744, his regiment 
being the Grena Grenadiers. 

He was in the French and Indian War under Brad- 
dock and Washington, and was wounded at Braddock's 
defeat near Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, in 1755. 

He was discharged with rank of Captain and received 
a charter for a tract of land in Nova Scotia from George 
HI, on account of wounds and services rendered. 

He was married to Rachel Carr when he was fifty 
years of age and had the following children: 

William, b. 1773.

Charles died in 1806, and with his wife Rachel was 
buried in the Butler cemetery, Butler County Pennsyl- 
vania. Their son Charles (b. 1780, d. 1857) was the 
father of Joseph McKinniss, b. June 30, 1801, in Butler 
County, Pennsylvania. His mother was Martha Craner 
(b. 1778, d. Aug. 8, 1864), a grand-daughter of Robert 
Fulton, who was born about 1669 in KilKerry, 
Ireland, and emigrated to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 
She was also a niece of Robert Fulton, Jr., the world 
renowned civil engineer, who exploited the first 
steamboat, the first mechanical dredge, the first torpedo, 
the first successful sub-marine boat, and several other 

useful inventions. His sister married Charles Craner, 
and their daughter, Martha, in turn married Charles 
McKinniss, the Ohio pioneer. With their ten children 
Craner, Joseph, Clarissa, Nancy, George, Phillip, Charles, 
Robert, Granville and Rachel, they emigrated to Ohio in 
1802. The journey from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to 
Portsmouth, Ohio, was made in a canoe, fashioned from 
the trunk of a large pine tree, so commodious it is said, 
that the family flour barrel was stowed cross-wise 
in the stern during the trip down the Ohio.

The following extract is taken from the obituary of 
Mrs. Sarah (Shearer) Stephenson: 

"Mrs. Stephenson was born within what are now the 
corporate limits of Wellston, Ohio. She died at the 
residence of her son, Hiram Stephenson. Mrs. Stephen- 
son united with the M. E. Church, and in girlhood and 
womanhood passed a consistent Christian life. 

Pure in thought, chaste in speech, there was in her 
life a gentility and dignity of character that bespoke a 
fine quality of mind and heart that was the inheritance 
of the fine old English family from which she sprung. 
The passing of Mrs. Stephenson removes one of the few 
people whose life bound the present to the early history 
of the country in which she was born, spent a long life 
and where she died."

Although a very young woman, Mrs. Ralph before 
her marriage had an extended career in newspaper work 
in Salt Lake City, Omaha, Chicago, and New York. 
She was placed at the head of the "Department of Pub- 
licity," of the Omaha Exposition. 

As a reporter of the Associated Press she received 
several enviable assignments. She was the only woman 


correspondent sent by this organization to report the 
Spanish-American war in Cuba. 

Following the Omaha Exposition, Mrs. Ralph re- 
ceived an appointment in 1900, to a position on the 
United States commission for the Paris Exposition, being 
the only woman so honored. In Paris she acted as 
Directress of Publicity so far as the exhibits of the United 
States were concerned, and did a great deal to bring 
American goods to the attention of Europeans. 

Mrs. Ralph was selected by the Associated Press to 
attend the marriage of Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, 
and was the only woman admitted to the ceremony in 
the New Kirk in Amsterdam. 

Mrs. Ralph, besides possessing a great talent for or- 
ganization, and ability as a journalist gives promise of 
an artistic career. 

She is at present studying sculpture in London; she 
is described as very promising, and her work will be 
exhibited in the Salon this year. While many honors 
have come to Mrs. Ralph, she declines to talk of her 
personal exploits and is very quiet and unassuming, 
with a charm of personality which is felt by every one 
who comes in contact with her. 

Her husbmd, Lester Ralph, son of the late Julian 
Ralph, traveler, war correspondent and author, is one 
of the foremost illustrators in America. He was an 
artist in the Turko-Greek war 1897, and in the South 
African war, 1900.

Jacob Ohler, said by family tradition to have been 
the ancestor of that branch of the family indicated here, 
came, according to some of his descendants, from Scot- 
land, and settled at Baltimore, Maryland. 

John Ohler, (son of Jacob) moved to western Ohio, 
near Mansfield, and later migrated to Auglaize County. 

William Ohler, (son of John), born June 17, 1831 , 
in Richland County, Ohio; died June 21, 1906, at Uni- 
opolis, Ohio; married in 1853, to Martha Lusk, (daugh- 
ter of Benjamin and Anna (Compton), Lusk), born Oct. 
19, 1835, in Auglaize, County, Ohio; died April 18, 
1907, at Lima, Ohio. 

James Oswell Ohler, son of William and Martha 
(Lusk) Ohler, was born Sept. 27, 1859, in Hardin County, 
Ohio; m. Oct. 15, 1884, at Hamden, Ohio, to Clara M. 
Paine, (Gen. VIII, No. 163, Paine Family). Was a 
student of Ohio Wesleyan University where he was a 
member of the Chi Phi fraternity. 

Graduated from the Cincinnati Law School in 1883, 
and in the same year began the practice of law in Lima, 

In 1888 he was elected City Solicitor of Lima, and 
has been for thirty years prominently identified with the 
business interests of Lima, dealing largely in real estate. 

In 1889, he erected the Metropolitan Block on the 
corner of Main and North Streets and placed in it the 
first passenger elevator in Lima. 

Through his mother, James O. Ohler is descended 
from the Compton family of Virginia, a short sketch of 
which follows: 




Hugh A. Allen, of Botetourt County, Virginia, 
married Anna Hobson, of Maryland. The Allen family 
were of English descent and were among the early 
settlers of Virginia. 

Jane Virginia Allen, daughter of Hugh and Anna 
(Hobson) Allen, married William Compton, a son of John 
and Anna (McGuire) Compton, who 'settled first near 
Baltimore, Maryland, and later removed to Clear Fork, 
Tazewell County, Virginia. 

Anna Compton, daughter of William and Jane 
(Allen) Compton, married Benjamin Lusk in Virginia, 
but later removed to Auglaize County, Ohio. 

A genealogy of the Compton family is now being 
compiled which, it is said, will show a descent from Wil- 
liam Compton, first Earl of Northampton, whose country 
seat was at Compton Wynnates, Warwickshire, England. 

Martha Lusk, daughter of Benjamin and Anna 
(Compton) Lusk, born October 19, 1835, in Auglaize 
County, Ohio; died April 18, 1907, at Lima, Ohio; mar- 
ried 1853, to William Ohler. born June 17, 1831, in 
Richland Co., Ohio; died June 21, 1906, at Uniopolis.O. 


The Roby family first appears in Maryland in 1717, 
where in Calvert County, we find the name of "Mr. 
Jeffry Roby". One branch bought lands in Charles 
County, in 1750. Before that time they may have had 
long leases on the great manors — a very common prac- 
tice as it was less expensive than obtaining grants. 
This being the case, having nothing but personal property 
they failed to make wills, so that it is very difficult to 
make connection between the various branches of the 
family then living in Charles County, and undoubtedly 

The Tucker family is still more puzzling. The 
earliest will found was in Calvert County, Maryland, 
whence they spread all over the state, but it has been 
found impossible to trace them. 

One family was found holding lands in Montgomery 
County, but they parted with them as the deeds prove, 
before 1780, and all trace of them is lost. One "Thomas 
Tucker Jr." held lands in Charles County, early in the 
eighteenth century. 

The ancestry of Elizabeth Roby, wife of Lemuel 
Shepherd Paine, (Gen. VIII, No. 123, Paine Family), 
can be traced definitely to 

Richard Roby (Gen. I, No. 1), of Trinity Parish, 
Charles County, Maryland. His will, probated May 10, 
1801, leaves "to his wife Ann Roby, his whole estate, real 
and personal, she to be executor." The will was probated 
by Alexander Roby, Benjamin Roby and Elizabeth 

William Roby, (Gen. II, No. 2), son of Richard and 
Ann Roby, married Susanna Dement, (daughter of 
William and Mary Dement) who was born, March 27, 
1745, and died August 17, 1784. The Register of Trinity 
Parish, Charles County, gives the names of their children 
as follows : 

3 George Dement, b. Dec. 25, 1764. 

4 Charles, b. May 14, 1766. 

5 Elizabeth, b. Jan. 18, 1768. 

6 Townley, b. Jan. 1, 1770. 

7 Katherine, b. Dec. 10, 1771. 

8 Truman, b. Aug. 24, 1773. 

9 Cornelius, b. Jan. 26, 1775. 

10 Acquilla, b. Dec. 9, 1777. 

11 Hezekiah, b. 1779. 

12 Mary, b. Dec. 29, 1781. 

George Dement Roby, (Gen. Ill, No. 3), eldest son 
of William and Susanna (Dement) Roby, removed to 
Montgomery County, Maryland; he was married, but the 
name of his wife is unknown. By a deed of gift recorded 
June 23, 1817, he names two of his children, John B. and 

John Basil Roby, (Gen. IV, No. 13), son of George 
(Dement) Roby, married Elizabeth A. Woodgert, Jan. 6, 
1814. The maiden name of Elizabeth Woodgert's 
mother was Charlotte Tucker and they were members of 
the Roman Catholic Church. 

A curious incident occurred in this connection: 
The Roby family, into which she married, was of the 
Protestant religion, and considerable opposition was made 
by both families to the marriage on account of re- 
ligious differences. 

It resulted, however, in the promise of John B. Roby 
to conform to the religion of his wife. In 1817, they 

removed to Tarlton, Pickaway County, Ohio, where he 
united with the Methodist Episcopal Church. 

Those were the days of the "Circuit Rider," as the 
pastor of that church was known in pioneer times, 
because of the number of charges belonging to each 
circuit, which he was obhged to visit in turn. During 
his absence, the "class leader" took his place and as far 
as possible assumed his responsibilities. A strong friend- 
ship existed between John Roby and his class leader, and 
together they labored long and hard to induce the wife 
of the former to abandon her church and ally herself with 
that of her husband. 

This was eventually brought about by a dream in 
which Mrs. Roby saw herself standing with her mother 
in an open field beside a country "stile;" just over the 
fence, appeared the figures of her husband and his friend 
the "class leade.r" 

Her mother, who had been holding her daughter's hand, 
released it, and bade her cross the stile and join her 

Being of a superstitious nature, she took this as an 
omen bidding her leave her own church and join that of 
her husband, which she did. 

The children of John B. and Elizabeth (Woodgert) 
Roby were as follows: 

14 Mary Ann, 

15 George W. 

16 Elizabeth. 

17 Emily. 

18 William Basil. 

19 Martha. 

20 Henrietta. 

21 Matilda Amelia. 


Elizabeth Roby, (Gen. V, No. 16), daughter of John 
B. and Elizabeth (Woodgert) Roby, was born May 16, 
1820, at Tarlton, Ohio; married Lemuel Shepherd Paine, 
(See Paine Family, Gen. VII, No. 123). 

Her father stated that he could trace his ancestry 
back to the coming of Lord Baltimore to Maryland, but 
in what way is unknown to us. 

The following notes upon various members of the 
Roby family are given below, although the connection 
which existed between them is not known.

Ralph Shepard, (Gen. I, No. 1), b. 1603, in England; 
d. Sept, 11, 1693, at Charlestown, Massachusetts; m. in 
England to Thankslord . 

The following shetch is taken from the book entitled 
"Ralph Shepard, Puritan," by permission of the author, 
Mr. C. Sydney Shepard of New Haven, New York. 


With the exception of two or three facts, we know 
little about Ralph Shepard before his departure for 
America. He was born in 1603, and presumably passed 
his early days in England, plying his trade. 

He was a tailor, and probably an officer in the "Drap- 
er's Guild." It has been said that it takes nine tailors 
to make a man, but the slur is unjust. The first Lord 
Mayor of London was a draper, and membership in a 
guild in the seventeenth century was an honor. At that 
time the trades held a vastly different relation to the 
social life of England than they do at present; for citizen- 
ship of London was acquired after the time of Edward H., 
chiefly through the crafts. We may infer then, from 
Ralph's being a member of the Drapers' Guild, that he 
was also a citizen of London. 

He must have been influenced by those troublous 
times in the reigns of James I and Charles, I when the 
people were struggling for political and religious liberty; 
for it was on the twenty-fourth of April, 1634, when 
Archbishop Laud was persecuting the non-conformists, 
that Ralph was summoned before the Court of High 

Commissions. Tiiis was "An ecclesiastical court of very 
extensive jurisdiction, for the vindication of the peace 
and dignity of the church, by reforming, ordering and 
correcting the ecclesiastical state and persons, and all 
manners of errors, heresies, schisms, abuses, offences, 
contempts and enormities." The sentence pronounced 
agaist "Ralph Shepard of Limehouse, Midd," as he is 
called, is not given, but it is most probable that he left 
England on account of the sentence of the court. 

At any rate, we know that a little more than a year 
later, he sailed for America. The last day of June, 1635, 
accompanied by his wife. Thanks, and daughter, Sara, 
he went aboard the "Abigail." She was bound for New 
England in charge of Robert Hachwell, master. Ralph's 
wife, according to the entry was twenty three, his daught- 
er two, and he, himself, was twenty-nine. His age at 
any rate is not correct for we find by his tombstone 
and the Charlestown records that at this time, he must 
have been thirty-two. He was furnished, we learn 
further, with a certificate from the minister of Stepney 

According to well authenticated family tradition, the 
Shepards came from Stepney near London. Limehouse 
was then a hamlet in Stepney parish — St. Dunstan's in- 
the East. It was from the minister of this parish that 
Ralph obtained his certificate. In 1730 Limehouse be- 
came the separate parish of St. Anne-Limehouse, now a 
part of London, and this district at present, densely 
populated, adjoins the East End. 

Turning now to his history in America, the first 
mention that we find of Ralph Shepard is in the town rec- 
ords of Dedham. A company of people left Watertown to 
settle Dedham and it is said that he was in the former 
place. Savage says: "First sat down probably at 
Watertown," but by Farmer is called "of Weymouth." 
He was not at Weymouth till later. The Watertown 

records show nothing, but as the early Dedham town 
meetings were held in Watertown, he was probably in the 
latter place for a time at least. 

But prior even to 1642, he must have removed to 
Weymouth; for his son, Isaac, was born there on the 
twentieth of June, 1639, and his daughter Trial, on the 
nineteenth of December, 1641. 

According to Savage "He was of Rehoboth perhaps 
in 1644," but it seems more probable that he never lived 

Ralph Shepard was certainly at Maiden during this 
decade. He was not one of the incorporators in 1649, 
but was concerned in the ordination of Mr. Mathews in 
1650, as appears from a petition presented to the Court 
May 16, 1655. On February 10th, 1650 — "I Ralph 
was blessed with the birth of daughter" whom he named 
Thanks and some time in June, 1653, "with a son", whom 
he called Jacob. 


Though apparently well established at Maiden, 
Ralph Shepard sold his home and removed to Concord. 
His daughter, Triall, had married Walter Power at 
Maiden, March 11th, 1660-1. In 1666, they were living 
at Concord ; but when Ralph moved there, it is uncertain; 
though it seems probable about that time. 


We have been able to catch but a glance here and 
there of Ralph Shepard and now eleven years more roll 
by in silence. Then all we find is the simple record of 
his death. He is buried in the old Bell Rock Cemetery 
in Maiden; and over his grave stands a tombstone 
weatherbeaten with the storms of two centuries. 

The hour-glass and cross-bones tell us that time does 
not tarry and that death so comes to all ; while the wings 


on either side of the skull suggest the hope of a blessed 
immortality. Below these symbols we read that "Ralph 
Shepard died aged ninety, September 11th, 1693." 

But, though we are sure that he died just two hundred 
years ago, we can not be certain of the day of the month; 
for, according to the Charlestown records, it was a little 
earlier. There we find the following entry; "Ralph 
Shepard, aged ninety yeares, dyed August 20th, 1693." 

The difference is slight, yet we should be better satis- 
fied if the two records agreed. In those days, however, 
such mistakes were common. It may be that the 
tombstone was put up, and the inscription written from 
memory sometime after Ralph's decease — but this is 
only conjecture. 

As Ralph's death is recorded at Charlestown and he 
was buried at Maiden he must have lived at the former 
place, presumably at Charlestown-Mystic-Side, where 
Thomas Shepard lived. Ralph's advanced age would 
lead us to suppose that he was away from Concord on a 
visit only, and death overtook him unawares. 

Another authority says of him: 

Ralph Shepard, b. 1603, in England, emigrated to 
America in the "Abigail" (1635) with his wife "Thanks" 
and daughter "Sara," aged respectively "wife 23, daught- 
er 2," located in Dedham Massachusetts, a plantation 
settled above the Charles river, and "attended the first 
meeting in 1636." 

"At third town meeting, he and others petitioned 
for more land and asked to have the town named ; which 
petition was partially granted, the town being named 

Ralph Shepard was the eighth named in the covenant. 
He attended twenty-one of the twenty-six town meetings; 
sold land in 1639, moved to Weymouth, where son Isaac, 
and daughter Trial were born in 1639 and 1641. Ralph 
Shepard was one of twenty who signed a compact for 

instituting a government of nine men, probably the 
founding of Rehoboth; was appointed with Nicholas 
Bryan, "Viewer of fences" at Weymouth, Massachusetts, 
Feb. 9, 1645; was a "RuHng Elder" in the church at 
Maiden, Massachusetts. Admitted "Freeman at Mai- 
den, Massachusetts, in 1651. Bought large farm of 
Lieut. Joseph Wheeler in Concord, of which he deeded, 
March 25, 1666, sixty acres to the three children of his 
son Isaac, who had been killed by the Indians.

Children of Ralph and Thanklord Shepard. 

2 Sarah, b. 1633, in England. 

3 Thomas, b. 1632 or 1635, in America. 

4 Isaac, b. June 20, 1639, at Weymouth, Mass.; m. 

Mary Smedley.

10 Walter. 

Thomas Shepard, (Gen. II, No. 3), b, 1632 or 1635, 
in America; d. Sept. 29, 1719 at Milton, Mass.; m. Nov. 
19, 1658, at Maiden, Mass., to Hannah Ensign, b. 1639; 
d. March 14, 1698, (daughter of Thomas Ensign of 
Scituate, who married Elizabeth Wilder of Hingham). 

Because his birth record has never been discovered, 
some doubt has been expressed as to whether Thomas 
Shepard, (Gen. II, No. 3), was the son of Ralph, the 
emigrant ancestor. 

However, there is no documentary evidence to the 
contrary; while there are several indications of value to 

the genealogist, which confirm the belief that he was. 
One genealogist says: "The knowledge which we have of 
the intimate relations of Ralph Shepard's other children 
with Thomas counts for a good deal." 

The fact that Thomas Shepard once lived in Maiden, 
and named a son Ralph is considered good evidence that 
he was his son, or at least that there was a close relation- 
ship: Two records are in existence of the date of his 
birth; one that he was 48 in 1683, and the other his 
gravestone, which says he died in 1719, aged 87. He 
was commonly called, "Thomas Shepard, of Maiden," 
though he lived both at Medford and Charlestown 
(Mystic Side). He left a will in which he mentions his 
son Ralph.

In the name of God, Amen, the 20th day of May, 
Annoque Dominis, 1765. I, Ralph Shepard, of Douglass, 
in the county of Worchester; In his majesties province 
of the Massachusetts Bay, in New England ; Being aged 
and infirm and sickly of body ; but of sound and perfect 
mind and memory, and knowing that through age and 
weakness of my nature, I have but a little while to live, 
and being desirous to settle what outward estate the 
Lord hath lent to me: Do make and ordain this my 
last will and testament, in manner and form following: 
hereby breaking all and every will and testament, word 
or writing. 

First and principally, I commend my soul into the 
hands of Almighty God, my creator and redeemer, and 
body to the earth to be decently buried at the disposition 
of my executors hereinafter named : 

First, I will that my just debts that I owe shall be 

well and truly paid, by my executors, within the term 
of one year after my decease. 

I do constitute and appoint my sons-in-law, William 
Dudley and Robert Humes, all of Douglass, to be ex- 
ecutors to this my last will and testament, and if it shall 
please God that my well beloved wife Sarah, shall 
survive me, I will that she shall have the improvement 
of one third of all my estate, during her life in the world, 
and to be disposed of at her discretion: That is to say, 
after paying my just debts, and funeral charges, and the 
legacies named. To my eldest daughter, Sarah Dudley, 
I give five shillings, and the reason why I give no mare to 
my daughter Sarah, is because she has already her full 
share of my estate. 

To my daughter, Ann Dudley, I give six pounds, 
thirteen shillings and four pence lawful money. 

To my daughter Elizabeth Rider, I give six pounds, 
thirteen shillings and four pence lawful money. 

To my daughter Miriam Humes, I give six pounds, 
thirteen shillings and four pence lawful money. 

To my daughter Abigail Paine, I give thirteen pounds, 
six shillings and eight pence lawful money. 

To my son, Simeon, I give two thirds of my estate, 
after paying out the debts and funeral charges and lega- 
cies before memtioned, to be paid by my executors as soon 
as they can make sale of such a quantity of land as they 
think sufficient to pay the debts and legacies. 

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and 
seal, the day and year above-said. Signed and sealed 
by Ralph Shepard to be his last will and testament in 
presence of us.

To William A. Leonard, Bishop of Ohio, we owe a 
very comprehensive history of the Leonard family cover- 
ing many years of research. 

Bishop Leonard has visited the early homes of the 
Leonards, both in America and England, and descendants 
of the Leonard family will find much that is both interest- 
ing and instructive in his book, "Stephen Banks Leonard" 
printed for private circulation in 1909. 

We are greatly indebted to the author for permission 
to make the following extracts from his valuable work: 

"The name shows Saxon origin and was spelled in the 
sixth century as now, "Leonard." 

Among the oldest families of Saxon origin in Kent 
were the Leonards; with the principal line the easier 
method of spelling the name, Lennard, was adopted as 
far back as the reign of Henry VL but members of the 
same family preserved the ancient form of Leonard. 
The name is found some twelve hundred years ago among 
"the forest smiths" of Germany and spelled Leonard, 
which is the old German of the sixth century. 

The significance is "lion hearted" from Leo, or Leon 
and ard. After the Saxon invasion of England, some of 
the Leonards, workmen in metals, left the continent, and 
settled in Kent and Sussex, among the iron hills. 

In the course of time, as these mines proved unpro- 
ductive, great inducements were offered to laborers 
skilled in the business, to remove to the western parts of 
England on the borders of Wales. 

The Domesday Book of 1086, mentions the existence 

of iron works at this time in the countries of Somerset, 
Gloucester, Hereford, and other counties adjacent to 
the Welsh country. 

It was from the iron-mining districts of Monmouth- 
shire, in Wales, that the branch of the Leonard family- 
came who settled in the New England colonies between 
1625-50, and continued in the vicinity of Boston, the 
hereditary business of their ancestors. 

During the fourteenth century, King Edward III. 
greatly encouraged the iron industry, and old Sussex and 
Kent became again the principal seat of the iron manu- 
facture in Great Britain. 

It is to these counties that the Leonards trace back 
their pedigree to landed property holders, and titled 
nobility. In fact, the family are said to have descended 
in two lines from Edward III, through two of his sons, 
John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, and his youngest son, 
Thomas Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester. 

The name is found spelled two ways, Leonard and 
Lennard, but the coats of arms borne by all of them were 
the same, and early members of the family used both 
forms of orthography. 

The title of rank was not brought into the family till 
the latter part of the sixteenth century and then by 
Margaret Fynes (or Fienes) sister and heir of Gregory, 
Lord Dacre. 

Among the first found on record of the Leonard name, 
who attained to noted distinction, and transmitted a 
valuable estate, was George Leonard, Esq., who lived in 
the time of Henry VI, A. D. 1422-62. 

The following pedigree is taken from "The Families 
of Lennard and Barrett," published in 1908, by Thomas 
Barrett-Lennard of Norwich, England. 


1 George Lennard, m. Matilda of Kent, time of Henry 


2 John Lennard, m. Anne, daughter of J. Bird of 


3 John Lennard, m. Catherine, daughter of T. Weston 

of Chepstral. 

4 John Lennard, b. 1508; d. 1590; m. Elizabeth, 

daughter of W. Harman of EUam. 

5 Samson Lennard, m. Hon. Margaret Fynes, Baron- 

ness Dacre. 

The third John Lennard, son of John and Catherine 
(Weston) Lennard, may be regarded as the founder of 
the Lennard family; one which for the next hun- 
dred years, was to hold a somewhat prominent 
position from its alliances and possessions, and also from 
the fact that it represented the ancient Barony of Dacre, 
which was held by Lennards from 1612 until 1788. 

John was no doubt ambitious and not content to 
remain inactive until such time as he should inherit his 
father's property and to spend his life in the obscure 
position of a country squire. 

He possessed great shrewdness and tact; and these 
qualities, combined with perseverance caused him not 
merely to attain distinction in his profession and con- 
siderable riches, but also to put him on terms of friendship 
with some of the leading men of the day. 

He was no doubt not unfrequently present at the 
Queen's court, as during one of her journeys through 
Kent she recognized him at Dartford and addressed him 
by name. 

His son Sampson Lennard, left a very interesting 
account in manuscript of the life of his father, John Len- 

His wife was Elizabeth, daughter of William Har- 

man of Ellam, Crayford, Kent, whose will was proved in 
1547, by his wife Margaret, daughter of Sir John Butler. 

William Harman was son of Henry, also of Ellam, 
clerk to the Crown of Henry VH ; His will was proved in 

John Lennard had three sons, Sampson, Benjamin 
and Samuel, and five daughters, Mary.Timothea, Rachael, 
Elizabeth and Anne. 

Benjamin was admitted a member of Lincolns Inn, 

Samuel was always spoken of as Sir Samuel, so he was 
presumably knighted, and he died on the 1st of April, 
1618, at the home of his mother-in-law, Lady Swaney. 

The marriages which John Lennard's daughters 
contracted are as follows: 

Mary married (1) Guildford Waldingham; (2) 
Sir Thomas Gresham. 

Thimothea, m. Sir Walter Covert of Slangham, Sussex. 
Rachael married Edward Nevill, afterwards Lord 

Elizabeth married Sir Francis Euse, Chief Justice of 

North Wales. 
Anne married Sir Marmaduke Darrell, cofferer to 

James I. 
Sampson, as before stated, married Margaret Fynes, 

Baroness Dacre. 

An account of the Lennard family prepared by the 29th 
Lord Dacre, is included by Mr. Thomas Barrett-Lennard 
in his book and is as follows: 

"The family wnich for a long time held rank amongst 
those of the first note in Kent, was, as appears by the 
books in the Heralds office,and other authentic evidences, 
settled in Chevenning in that county as early as King 
Henry the Sixth's time, when George Lennard was then 
living there" In support of this statement he cited 

several authorities, none of whom, however, mentions 
at what period this George lived. 

A Mr. Ebenezer Leonard (died 1894) of Boston, 
U. S. A., a very diligent antiquary, said he had discovered 
a John Lennard of Chepsted in 1440, who was the father 
of this George, and was probably born in the end of the 
fourteenth century, but he gives no reference to where he 
found him mentioned. 

While on the subject of this Mr. Ebenezer Leonard 
I may mention that he was a member of a family in 
America, who for more than two hundred years have 
maintained a tradition that they are descended from the 
Lennards of Chevenning. 

At the time of the war of Independence they remained 
loyal to England and one of them is said to have fitted 
out a small "fleet" at his own expense, to fight for the 

In 1770, George Leonard, a colonel in the Royal 
American Guards, visited in England and had several 
interviews with Thomas, Lord Dacre, both at Belhus, 
and Bretton Street. 

The latter placed his family muniments at his guest's 
disposal with every wish that he would be able to prove 
his relationship with him, as he would have greatly pre- 
ferred that his title should descend to one of his own name 
than to one of his mother's descendants by her second 

These American Leonards believe that they are 
descended from Samson Lennard of Chevenning or from 
his cousin Sampson Lennard the herald, who was the son 
of William, brother of John of Chevenning, and was a 
somewhat distinguished member of the College of Heralds 
and attained to the rank of "Bluemantle". Many of his 
"visitations" and other heraldic writings remain. He 
died 1628." 

It is generally supposed, however, that the American 

family of Leonard, is descended from Samson Leonard of 
Chevenning, Kent, who was born about 1545, and mar- 
ried Margaret Fynes, Baronness Dacre in her own right. 

Sampson Lennard died 1615, aged 71 years. His 
wife died in 1611, aged 70 years. He was a member of 
Parliament in 1614. 

Fine engravings of the costly tombs of John Lennard, 
his son Samson, and the residences of members of the 
family, are given in Hasted's History of Kent. 

The following pedigree is taken from the book, en- 
titled "Stephen Banks Leonard," compiled by Bishop 
Leonard of Ohio. 



1 John Lennard, of Knole, Kent., born 1479, died 1556. 

2 John Lennard, son of John, born 1508, died 1590. 

3 Samson Lennard, son of John, 11th Baron Dacre; 

born 1545; died 1615; married Lady Margaret 
Fynes, Baroness Dacre (sister of Gregory, 10th 
Baron Dacre), died, 1611. 

4 Sir Henry Lennard, son of Samson; 12th Baron 

Dacre, born 1569; married Lady Chrysogna, 
daughter of Sir Richard Baker of Sissinghurst, 

5 Richard Lennard, son of Henry; 13th Baron Dacre, 

seated at Chevenning, died 1630; married (1) 
Lady Anne, daughter of Sir Arthur Throck- 
morton, of Paulers Perry, Northampton; mar- 
ried (2) Dorothy, daughter of Dudley, Lord 

6 Thomas Leonard of Pontipool, Wales, younger son 

of above, and brother of Francis, 14th Baron 




Dacre. (James and Henry Leonard (and pos- 
sibly another brother John) sons of Thomas 
Leonard came to America and settled in Mass., 
first in Lynn and later in Taunton. They 
established the first iron works in America at 
Sangers, near Lynn). 

7 James Leonard, son of Thomas Leonard, of Ponti- 
pool, Wales, born in Great Britain, came to 
America 1645, was not living in 1691. "Mar- 
garet, was step mother to all his children." James 
Leonard (Generation 7) is later referred to as 
Gen. 1 No. 1, of the Leonard Family in America. 

From Hasteds "History of Kent", we learn that 
extensive iron works existed in Kent, (in vicinities of 
Chevenning and West Wickham seats of Lennards). 

These works gradually died out, and Queen Elizabeth 
was one who urged persons acquainted with the iron 
business to go to Monmouthshire. 

This may account for Leonards of Kent and Sussex 
going to Monmouthshire to manage iron works. 


This magnificent castle became the home of the 
Lennards, Lord Dacre, upon the marriage of Samson 
Lennard, Esq., to Margaret Fienes, Baroness Dacre, and 
remained in possession of their descendants for four 

It was originally the property of a noble family named 
De Herst; In the year 1200, it passed into the hands of 
Maleran De Herst, who assumed the sur name of Mon- 
ceaux; Maude de Monceaux, grand-daughter of Maleran, 
married Sir John De Fienes, and the manor ofHurstmon- 
eaux passed to the family of Fienes. 

Their descendant. Sir Roger de Fienes, began in 1440, 
to build the magnificent Hurstmonceaux Castle. 

Sir Roger was succeeded by his son Richard, who 
married Joan, daughter and heir of Thomas Lord Dacre, 
and was in her right, declared Baroness Dacre, in 1458. 

Their descendant, Margaret, Baroness Dacre, married 
Sampson Lennard Esq. of Chevenning, Kent, who be- 
came eleventh Baron Dacre. 

Sampson Lennard and his wife "lived much at Hurst- 
monceaux where they were remarkable for their noble 
house-keeping and splendid hospitality." 

The castle measured 206 x 214 feet and was entirely 
surrounded by a moat. The interior consisted of 
numerous suites of rooms, courts, and galleries; upon 
many of the windows was painted the wolf-dog — the 
ancient supporter of the arms of the families of Fienes and 
Lennard. Hurstmonceaux, says one writer, formed a 
most important link between the fortified castle of the 
Mediaeval period and the palatial manor house of later 
days. "A noble composition which deserves the attentive 
study of the architect, the details being sufficiently 
ornamented to give an air of richness without impairing 
the character of boldness and strength proper to a castle. 
Horsfield says that "in the days of its glory, the castle 
had as many windows as there are days in the year, and 
as many chimneys as there are weeks." 

As we have seen, Richard Lennard become 13th 
Baron Dacre. He was twice married and by his first 
wife had four sons; Francis, who became 14th Baron 
Dacre, Henry, Thomas and Richard. 

Richard died young, and by his second wife he had 
three children, Richard, Anne and Katherine. 

Bishop Leonard, in his book, reproduces a picture of 
two handsome boys, which was painted by Sir Peter 
Leby (Pontypool). It is thought to represent the lads 
Henry and James Leonard, who later emigrated to

Sussex, the home of Sir Thomas Barrett-Lennard, and 
came from Pontypool. 

Thomas Lennard, son of Francis, became 15th Baron 
Dacre, and was also created Earl of Sussex; He became 
financially embarrassed and was forced to sell Hurst- 
monceaux Castle, which thus passed out of the Lennard 
family. Until 1777, it was "the most perfect and regular 
castellated mansion in the Kingdom." 

About that time, the roof was taken down and the 
interior demolished by the owner, who used the materials 
in the construction of a modern manor house. The 
ancient tapestry, furniture and carvings were sold at 
public auction. Hurstmonceaux Castle is still said to be 
the most beautiful ruin in England. 


(By permission of Bishop W. A. Leonard). 

The earliest account we have of the identification of 
the later English Leonards with iron work is found in the 
state calendars. 

Richard Leonard, Lord Dacre, lived at Hurstmon- 
ceaux in 1617. 

In December, 1620, upon inquiry as to who had paid 
the contribution to the Palatinate, Lord Dacre said that 
"he had done so;" and on March 26, 1626, there is execu- 
tion of a grant to Richard, Lord Dacre, Thomas Letsome 
and Nicholas Page, of a privilege for making Steele 
for 14 years invented and perfected by Letsome, by 
the charge of Lord Dacre and assistance of Page being 
the first inventor thereof. In the Hurstmonceaux 
household account book, there is an incidental 
reference to a "steele forge" which was probably near 
that castle and possibly the scene of these attempts to 
become successful "iron masters." 

We know that there was an iron working on the estate 


nearly a hundred years earlier in 1574, as a return was 
made of the owners of iron works in the counties of 
Surrey, Sussex and Kent; and amongst these there is 
this entry : 

"The Lord Dacres, 1 forge, 1 furnace, in Buckholdt 
in the hands of Jeffreys. 

(See "The Families of Barrett and Leonard" p. 256). 

With an inherited inclination and taste for the iron 
industry it was natural that the first Leonards who em- 
migrated to the American colony should undertake this 
useful vocation, and we may look with some interest at 
the record of their endeavors in Massachusetts. 


In 1551, there are entries in the Lynn account book 
of monies paid to James Leonard for work rendered. 

A brass furnace or foundry, and a refinery forge were 
established there as early as May 1645, and it was the 
first successful attempt, we are informed, to make "Barr 
Iron" in this country. 

These works were established by Adam Harokes in 
1630. Henry Leonard came to this countiry with his 
brother James, and they were skilled workmen in iron, 
and this name is the most noted in the annals of the New 
England iron industry. A common saying is "Where 
you can find iron works, there you can find a Leonard." 

The next iron enterprise in New England was located 
in the town or township of Taunton, Mass., two miles 
from the city of Taunton. 

At a town meeting at Taunton, held October 21, 1652, 
"it was agreed and granted by the town to the said 
Henry and James Leonard and Ralph Russell, free con- 
sent to come hither and join with certain of our inhabit- 
ants to set up a bloomery on Two Mile River." The 
Leonards contributed by their skill as iron-masters 

towards making this enterprise a success, and it long 
continued in a prosperous condition. 

Thomas Leonard, and his brother James Leonard 
succeeded their father in the works and the family name 
was connected with the Taunton forge for many genera- 

Thomas Leonard became manager and so continued 
until his death in 1713. Bar iron was made directly 
from the ore. The hammers and other heavy machinery 
for the Taunton bloomery came from abroad. The works 
made from twenty to thirty tons annually, averaging 
about $100 a ton of our currency. 

A few years ago the old buildings were demolished 
and the foundation walls alone remain of the ancient 
Taunton iron works of 224 years — the oldest successful 
iron manufactory in New England. 

The Whittington iron works on Mill River were 
built by James Leonard senior "forgeman" in 1670. 
These works embraced " a bloomerie with one hearth." 

Mr. Leonard's three sons Joseph, Benjamin and Urich, 
having served in the Taunton iron works at the "refining 
and bloomerie" trade worked the forge. They had also 
a grist mill at the same place. This was the location 
of James Leonard's iron works. James Leonard died in 
1691. The Whittington bloomery was continued by his 
sons and their successors for more than a hundred years. 


Having established their forge on the banks of the 
Two Mile River, the wisdom and kindliness of the 
Leonards was made evident by the relationship which 
soon ripened into a close friendship with the Indian 
King, Philip, head of the Pequot tribes; the result being 
that later on, a contract was made between the King and 
the Leonards, in which it was agreed that the Indians 
would guard and protect the rights and interests of this 

family in the future. This condition of things lasted 
for many years: King Philip prevented the property and 
lives of the Leonards from being destroyed during the 
Indian uprisings, (and these kind services were recipro- 
cated) and there are several interesting anecdotes relating 
to this situation. 

One is, that the niece of King Philip, a squaw, named 
Betty, when both families of the Leonards were stricken 
with typhoid fever, gathered herbs, prepared and ad- 
ministered the medicine and nursed the sick ones back 
to health. She refused the wampum and other recom- 
pense, but she did accept as a present a pretty red cloak, 
and in it she said she wished to be buried. 

When the great Indian chief ordered Taunton and 
the vicinity to be burned, he stipulated that the Leonard 
farms must not be disturbed. At their forge, he had 
his tomahawks and arrow-heads made. 

Later on, when King Philip was killed and his head 
was cut off, it was buried in the cellar of the Leonard 

In 1901, a reunion of the descendants of the Taunton 
Leonards was called in the city of Taunton. A large 
number met, and formed an association, adopted a con- 
stitution and by-laws, and prepared for the development 
of archives and publications which should bear upon the 
history of the family. Already they have accumulated 
an unusual amount of material; and having under their 
control the manuscript form compiled by the late Elisha 
C. Leonard, of New Bedford, when that is published we 
shall feel that the records of the clan have been scientifi- 
cally and thoroughly arranged and perpetuated. 

Through the courtesy of Mr. James Seaver, secretary 
of the Old Colony Historical Society of Taunton Mas- 
sachusetts, the writer was permitted to copy the following 
letters. The first, written in Salem, Jan. 25 1851, and 
signed Joseph E. Sprague, is addressed to Hon. Francis 

Baylies of Taunton, author of the "Memoirs of Plymouth 
Colony." and a descendant of the Leonards. 

The Rev. William McKinstry who is mentioned in 
the first letter, was the son of Dr. William McKinstry and 
his wife Priscilla, daughter of Rev. Nathaniel Leonard, 
pastor of the First Church in Plymouth, Massachusetts, 
She was the niece of Hon. George Leonard, of Norton, 
and cousin of Daniel Leonard, loyalist, of Taunton, sub- 
sequently Chief Justice of Bermuda. 

Dr. William McKinstry was also a loyalist and left 
Taunton with his family and died in Boston, March 25, 
1776. His family sailed for Halifax. His son. Rev. 
William McKinstry, entered the naval service of Great 
Britain: In an engagement with an American privateer 
in 1776, he lost his right hand and then became an 
Episcopal clergyman and it was' about this time, we 
judge from the letters, that he visited Lady Dacre as a 

Salem, Jan. 25, 1851. 
My Dear Sir:- 

I take the liberty to inclose you a biographical 
sketch which I drew two years since of the House of 
Leonard White, and to ask you what you know of the the 
descent of the Leonards from Lord Dacre — . 

I supposed it was unquestionable until I found my 
sketch republished in the genealogical register with that 
part omitted, and some of the family wrote me, question- 
ing the fact. 

I will tell you my authority; 

Mr. Leonard White, grandson of the Rev. Leonard of 
Plymouth, and his sister, Mrs. Bailey Bartlett, (the 
mother of both my wives) always spoke of it as an un- 
questionable fact. 

They said also that the male line in England being 
extinct, the title was offered to Judge Daniel Leonard 


of Bermuda, but as it was an empty title, without an 
estate, he would not accept it. 

My wife has a small miniature which we have always 
supposed was Lady Dacre. Rev. William McKinstry, 
likewise a grandson of Mr. N. Leonard, was settled in 
England as an Episcopal clergyman, and he received 
great attention from Lady Dacre as a relative. 

Was Col. Samuel White, the grandfather of Mrs. 
Brown, connected with my family, the Whites of Haver- 
hill . 

Our ancestor William White of Haverhill, was the 
first settler of Haverhill, and the Indian deed of the town 
was given to him. He had one son, John. That son 
left twelve children, from one of whom James descended, 
and from another, John, my wife descended. 

Three of the family married Philip's. In another 
family, Leverett Sattonstall & James H. Dieneson de-

And believe me with great respect,

Northampton, 17 Dec, 185L 
Hon. Francis Baylies: 
My Dear Sir:- 

Without the honor of your acquaintance, 
though a native of the same country with you, I beg to 
obtrude a little upon your attention, touching matters 
of family and ancestral history. I am led to this by a 
note appended to Mr. Deane's "Genealogical Memoirs" 
of the Leonard family" announcing that you have in 
preparation a genealogy of the Norton Leonards. 

As I was born in the east parish of Attleboro, and 
spent my years of boyhood there, I heard much of Judge 
Leonard of Norton, — of his immense wealth, his exten- 

sive estate, his park of deer, his tenants, his hired men, 
and his whims with them. 

I used to see him often passing through Attleboro on 
his way to Providence and heard of his aristocratic 
feelings and habits, I often passed his mansion during 
my thirteen years residence at South Weymouth, and 
am prepared to feel an interest in your forthcoming 

We genealogists (potato diggers they call us) are 
disinterested and disposed to sympathize in every such 
undertaking, especially in memoirs of distinguished 
families like that of the Leonards. 

Mr. Deane gives the tradition, the truth of which has 
been doubted by some, that the Leonards settled at 
Reynham, are descended from the Leonards, Lord Dacre. 

You, doubtless, have seen the genealogy of the Leon- 
ards, compiled by George Leonard, a tory of the Revolu- 
tion, which shows such a descent from that noble house. 

Mr. Dexter M. Leonard, 23 Federal street, Providence, 
showed me a copy of the chart made out by George 
Leonard, which he obtained from J. B. H. Leonard, who 
resides in or near Providence, and who graduated at 
Brown's University, in 1814. 

The proof of the noble descent of the Leonards of 
our county of Bristol is not within my sphere of research 
or means of knowledge, but I have traced the descent of 
the Lennards, Lord Dacre, from William the Con- 
queror, through King Edward III, and from that mon- 
arch through two of his sons, John of Gaunt, and Thomas 

King Edward III, was in the tenth generation from 
William the Conqueror, reckoning both in the series, 
and Thomas Barrett Leonard, the last Lord Dacre who 
bore the name of Lennard, was in the 23rd generation 
from the conqueror. 

Thomas was the XV Baron Dacre. The genealogy 

from the Conqueror, I compiled from the genealogy of 
Washington by F. N. Givelt Mapleson Esq. in his "Three 
books of Heraldry," a new edition of which will appear 
about Christmas from the press of John Wiley, New 

That from King Edward III, I compiled from Nie- 
veles's "Peerage" and a list of the Kings of England. 

A son of Samuel G. Drake of Boston, has been at my 
house and has copied the genealogy from my manuscript 
and he promised me that he would show the same to Mr. 
William R. Deane. I compiled it with considerable 
care and labor, but should be glad to have any deficiency 
supplied and any error corrected. 

Mr. Deane expressed a doubt as to the ground of 
Charles T. Rupers succession to the barony of Dacre. 

Nicholas calls him Trevor Charles Ruper, and states 
that he was half-nephew of Thomas Barret Lennard, and 
was his heir. Thomas dying sine prule. Thomas in- 
herited the barony from his mother Anne Leonard, whose 
first husband was Richard Barrett Lennard, who was 
not a baron. Anne, his wife was daughter and heir of 
Thomas Lennard, XIV Lord Dacre, who died without 
male issue. 

Anne, Baroness Dacre, married for her second 
husband Henry Ruper, VIII Baron Teynham, to whom 
she was third wife, and had by him two sons; Charles 
who married Gertrude, daughter of John Trevor and 
second Henry, killed in a duel. 

Charles Ruper, ob. vita nietris, and the barony de- 
volved upon his son, Trevor Charles Ruper, who dying, 
sine prule, the barony descended on his sister and heir 
Gertrude, wife of Thomas Brand Esq. 

She, dying in 1819, the barony devolved on her son 

Thomas Brand the present Baron Dacre, and Baron 

Multon of Gillesland. So the blood of the Lennards runs 

in his veins. Doubtless the present Lord Dacre has the 



family record from which proof of the descent of the 
Leonards of Reynham, from that noble house could be 
obtained, if such is their descent. 

I hope you will be successful in all your researches, 
and I am glad of the prospect that the history of a highly 
distinguished New England family is to be conserved for 
the information of this and future generations. 
I am. Dear Sir, 

Very respectfully yours, 

William Tyler

genealogical memoir of the LEONARD FAMILY 


N. E. H. & G. SOCIETY. 

(From Vol. V. New England Historical and Genealogi- 
cal Register). 

"It is now about sixty years since Rev. Perry Fobes, 
L. L. D., Pastor of the Congregational Church in Rayn- 
ham, furnished for the Massachusetts historical collec- 
tions, an account of the Leonard family; particularly of 
its longevity, promotion to office, and attachment to the 

iron manufacture. In his parish was the location of that 
family. There they built their forge. There they erected 
their first dwelling; and there passed the eventful scenes 
of their transactions and intercourse with the Indians; 
particularly with King Philip, that famous and warlike 
chieftain of the red man. 

The account of Dr. Fobes concerning the Leonard 
family is believed to be the first family genealogy of any 
considerable extent printed in New England. Two 
generations have passed since Dr. Fobes' article was 
written, and now another individual similarly connected 
with the family undertakes to continue the account to 
the present period. The brothers who first came to New 
England, are stated by Mr. Fobes to have been from 
Pontypool, County of Monmouth, Wales. Pontypool is 
situated between two hills on a rivulet called the Avon: 
it is about twelve miles from Newport, the nearest harbor; 
this place was celebrated for its working of iron at an 
early date. 

The Leonards had undoubtedly some claim to the 
ownership of iron works at Bilston County, Stafford, 
England. Dr. Fobes states that the forge at Raynham, 
Massachusetts, was the first erected in America. This 
statement is evidently incorrect: at Lynn and Braintree 
forges were established at an earlier date. James and 
Henry Leonard were connected with them, but finally 
settled at Raynham, where they built the first iron works 
in the old Colony. At that time, the proprietors of the 
iron works at Lynn and Braintree had a monopoly by 
grant of this business for the Massachusetts Colony. 
Their neighbors of the Plymouth Colony were also 
desirous to establish works of this kind and "It was agreed 
and granted by the town to the said Henry Leonard and 
James Leonard, his brother, and Ralph Russell, free 
consent to come hither and join with certain of our 



inhabitants to set up a bloomery work on the "Two Mile 

The "Bloomery" according to this agreement was 
erected ; and the iron manufacture extensively and pros- 
perously pursued. The forge at Raynham was the great 
joint stock company of that vicinity and period. For 
several generations are found on the probate and other 
records from "father to son," of "my share" or "shares in 
the iron works" as transmitted from father to son or 
other heirs of the succeeding generations. These works 
were undoubtedly very profitable. 

Henry Leonard who, with his brother James, estab- 
lished the forge at Taunton (now Raynham) was at 
Lynn in 1655 and 1668 and afterwards carried on the 
works at Rowley Village, which place he left early in 
1674; and at that time, or soon after, went to New Jersey, 
establishing the iron manufacture in that state. Henry's 
sons Samuel, Nathaniel, and Thomas, contracted to 
carry on the works at Rowley Village, after their father 
had left, but undoubtedly soon followed him to New 
Jersey, where numerous and highly respected descendants 
are now living, and where generation after generation of 
this branch of the family, it is believed to the present day 
have been more or less interested in their favorite pursuit 
— the manufacture of iron. 

Hon. Stephen B. Leonard, M. C. 1835-7 and 1839-41, 
is said to be of that family. 

The Leonards were interested in the iron works at 
Lynn, Braintree, Rowley Village, and Taunton; and at 
a later date, in those at Canton, so that the obervations 
where you can find iron works, there you will find a 
Leonard has been almost literally verified. They were 
probably interested in most, if not all, of the iron works 
established in this country within the first century after 
its settlement, and it is a remarkable fact that the iron 
manufacture has continued successively, and generally 

very successfully, in the hands of the Leonards or their 
descendants, down to the present day. Their old forge 
has been in constant use for very nearly two hundred 
years, and is now (Oct. 1851) in the full tide of successful 

The old Colony Iron Company at Squabetty on 
Taunton Great River, is carried on by descendants of 
James Leonard. 

The old Leonard House which stood but a few rods 
from the forge was pulled down a few years since. A part 
of this house was probably built as early as 1670, although 
the vane upon it had stenciled or cut into it the year 1770. 
It had been occupied by the family down to the seventh 
generation, and the spot with modern dwellings is now 
owned and occupied by the eighth. At the time the old 
home was demolished, it was probably the oldest dwelling 
in New England, if not in the country. 

(Note. The oldest dwelling now standing in New 
England, is supposed to the the home, lately occupied by 
the Leonard family in Norton). It was aparently model- 
ed after an English fashion of the eighteenth century with 
some modifications proper for defence against the Indians. 

This home in its first rude form, was, with another, 
kept constantly garrisoned during Philip's war. In the 
cellar, under this house, was deposited for a considerable 
time, the head of King Philip: for it seems that even 
Philip himself shared the fate of kings. He was dec- 
colated and his head carried about and shown as a 
curiosity by one Alderman, the Indian who shot him. 
It is greatly to be regretted that this ancient Gothic 
structure was not suffered to remain as a kind of castel- 
lated curiosity, a monumemtal memento telling in silent 
but expressive eloquence to future generations, the story 
of the thrilling scenes by which it was surrounded and 
through which it had passed. 

It has been said that the Leonards are of the family 


of Leonard, Lord Dacre, one of the most distinguished 
families of the nobility in the United Kingdom, and 
descended in two lines from Edward III, through two 
of his sons, John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, and 
Thomas Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester: and this 
statement has some plausibility. When Daniel Leonard 
late Chief Justice of Bermuda, first went to England to 
reside, he was introduced to Lord Dacre, then a Leonard, 
"who acknowledged the affinity" and Rev. William 
McKinstry who was a descendant of the Taunton 
Leonards and settled in England" was noticed as a 
relative by Lady Dacre," That the name Leonard is 
identical with that of Lennard is evident, as the same 
arms are born by both names. 

The earlier members of the Dacre family spelled it 
both ways. It is said that the title of Baron Dacre 
belonged to the Taunton Leonards. Sir Thomas Barrett 
Lennard, Lord Dacre, was the last Lennard who enjoyed 
that title. Upon his death in 1736, when no male heir 
appeared, George Leonard (7), son of George (6), (both 
of whom were loyalists and went to the British province 
to live) came to Norton and Raynham to consult with 
the Leonards there upon the expediency of claiming the 
title in question. 

The precise evidence, which could then have been 
brought forward to enforce this claim is unknown to the 
writer of this article. It is understood however, that the 
particular individual who would have been the heir, if 
the title belonged to the Taunton Leonards, preferred 
the independence of Democratic liberty and ease, to 
bearing the aristocratic honor of nobility in meekness or 
otherwise. The statement has been made by J. E. 
Sprague, Esq., of Salem, in the Essex Register, that the 
title of Baron was offered by the English government to 
the Hon. Daniel Leonard and that he refused it. 

Of Daniel Leonard, of Taunton, Massachusetts, a 

member of the House of Representatives, John Adams 
said: "He wore a broad gold lace round the brim of his 
hat; he had made his cloak glitter with lace still broader; 
he had set up his chariot and pair, and constantly 
traveled in it from Taunton to Boston. Daniel Leonard 
belonged to a Boston club, with Josiah Quincy and others, 
which collected arguments for and against the right of 
Parliament to tax the colonists; he finally took the Tory 
view and removing to Bermuda, became its Chief Justice. 

Taunton Green, on which, for the first time the 
American flag was unfurled for liberty, is soon to be 
further distinguished by the erection of a statue by 
Niehaus, in memory of James and Henry Leonard, 
emigrants from Pontypool, Monmouthshire, whose 
"Bloomerie" on the " Two Mile River" was the first 
successful iron-foundry on the American continent. 

This monument, for which a beautiful design has been 
prepared, will be erected by the Leonard Family Associa- 
tion. Among the members and officers of this wide- 
spread connection are the Hon. John Hay, Secretary of 
State, Lewis A. Leonard, of New York: Hon. Robert 
Treat Paine, of Boston :S. C. Leonard, of Detroit, Mich.: 
Henry Lovering, of Boston, and Job. M. Leonard of 
Fall River, Massachusetts. 

James Leonard was the progenitor of the Leonards of 
Taunton, Raynham and Norton. 

He and his sons often traded with the Indians and 
were on such terms of friendship with them, that when 
the war broke out King Philip gave strict orders to his 
men never to hurt the Leonards; Philip resided in winter 
at Mt. Hope; but his summer residence was at Raynham, 
about a mile from the forge. Thomas Leonard, son of 
the preceding, was a distinguished character. 

He came to New England with his father when a 
small boy, and afterwards worked at the bloomery art 
with him in the forge. He was a physician, mayor, 


Justice of the Peace, town clerk and deacon, and Judge 
of the Court of Common Pleas. 

Mayor George Leonard (4) third son of Thomas (3) 
removed about 1690 to Norton, then a part of Taunton, 
where he became the proprietor of very large tracts of 
land, being as it were, the founder of that town and the 
progenitor of the Norton family. 

Here, this family as precusors of great wealth and of 
the largest landed estate, probably of any in New Eng- 
land, have lived for one hundred and sixty years. Rev. 
William Tyler of Northampton, who spent his early days 
within a few miles of the Leonard mansion, writes thus: 

"The Norton family of Leonard, whether or not de- 
scended from the Lennards, Lord Dacre, have come the 
nearest to a baronial spirit and style of life, of any family 
I have known in New England".

Pontypool England; d. before 1691, at Taunton, Mass.;

law to all his children) d. about 1701. 

He was at Lynn 1651, of Braintree 1652, and settled 
the same year at Taunton, where he and his brother 
Henry erected the first forge in Plymouth Colony. This 
forge became soon after its erection, the principal one 
in America.

(From Bridgman Genealogy). 

James Bridgman, b. in England; d. March 1676, at 

Northampton, Mass.; m. Sarah ; d. Aug. 31, 

1688, at Northampton, Mass. 

Residence: Hartford, Conn.; Springfield, and North- 
ampton, Mass. 

James Bridgman, probably from Winchester, County 
Hants, England, came to America prior to 1640: for, on 
March 3 of that year, we first find record of him in this 
country, at Hartford, Connecticut. He was not one of 
the original proprietors, and whether he ever owned land 
there at all is doubtful. From subsequent records, it 
appears that he was a carpenter by trade. His eldest 
child of which we have any record, was born in that place 
and we infer that James was married there. 

In 1643, he removed to Springfield, Massachusetts, 
the first mention of him being that "Goodman Bridgman 
received four acres planting lot, facing on ye great river." 
He evidently had come to stay. His home lot was the 
one previously owned by Thomas Horton; viz. the fifth 
homestead south of "ye way to the training place," which 
way is the modern Elm street. 

The house lots all fronted on what is now Main Street 
and lay between that street and the Connecticut river. 
On the Main street frontage of what was then James 
Bridgman's home lot, is now located the block 546 Main 
Street which, by a strange coincidence, was built by Dr. 
William Bridgman, a descendant of James in the fifth 

generation. During his residence of twelve years in 
Springfield, James Bridgman is frequently mentioned 
in various transactions. 

In 1645, James, in company with a few other Spring- 
field men, pushed up the Connecticut river and settled 
in that part of Nonotunk, now called Northampton, 
Massachusetts. In this place, he seems to have spent 
his remaining years. His house lot in Northampton 
was on Hawley Street the original Main Street of the 
settlement. His name frequently appears in the records 
of Northampton. On May 3, 1659, the Dorchester, Mas- 
sachusetts, records show that he paid a visit to his son- 
in-law, Timothy Tileston. Northampton records show 
that he had at least three children born in that place. 
Of the family connections of Sarah, his wife, we know 
nothing. On June 18th, 1661, her name is found on the 
membership roll of the church at Northampton. Prof. 
Strong, in his popular book "Our Country" says: "When 
Northampton was settled, in 1654, it was "way out west" 
on the frontier. Among early settlers in the then wilder- 
ness, who shaped the character and history of the town, 
were the Aliens, Bartletts, Bridgmans," etc., etc. 

The town early became distinguished for its marked 
religious character, and its educational advantages. 

James Bridgman died in Northampton in March, 
1676. Tradition says on the same night as the birth 
of his grandson, "Deliverance." It was customary to 
name children for any note-worthy event occurring at or 
near the time of their birth ; and it was quite likely that 
this child "Deliverance" was named so to commemorate 
the deliverance of the family from the Indian raid referred 
to in the will of James Bridgman.

"The family of Adams can claim the distinction of 
having the oldest family name on record. 

The name is a very common one, both in America 
and England, going back as far as the Norman conquest. 

Henry Adams was the founder of the famous Adams 
family of Quincy, Massachusetts, which has furnished 
two Presidents of the United States, and many others of 
the name who, "in every age of America's history have 
signally advanced its high destiny." It is said that 
"more descendants of Henry Adams have been graduates 
of Yale and Harvard, than of any other man who ever 
settled in America."* 

Henry Adams came from England about 1632,with 
his wife, eight sons and one daughter, and settled at 
what was then Braintree, now Quincy, Massachusetts. 

Here on Feb. 24, 1639, the town of Boston granted 
him forty acres of land. This first Henry, says Daniel 
Munro Wilson, "was in the newly incorporated township, 
a man of mark — its first brewer (an important office 
among Englishmen) and also first town clerk, and "clerk 
of the writs." 

All this would go to show that in 1640, he was no 
recent settler, but a rooted and firmly established inhabi- 
tant. The when and whence of his arrival, however, are 
both in dispute. President John Adams, who should 
know by right of family tradition, had the following 
inscription cut upon a tomb which he erected in 1817 to 
his ancestors. "In Memory of Henry Adams who took 


his flight from the Dragon, persecution, in Devonshire, 
in England," 

Another descendant, the Rev. H. F. Fairbanks, favors 
this supposition, because the name of Henry Adams has 
been for two centuries or so on an ancient parchment 
roll, which connects him with a distinguished house of 
that region. 

This "ancient parchment roll" is known as the "Ap 
Adams pedigree" in which it is assumed that Henry 
Adams was of Welsh origin, and in the twelfth generation 
from Sir John, Lord Ap Adam, of Charlton Adam, in 
Somersetshire, and his wife Elizabeth de Gournai, daugh- 
ter of Lord de Gournai, who it is historically said, was 
related to all the reigning houses of Europe, and whose 
ancestry extended to William the Conqueror and through 
Matilda his wife, to Charlemagne, Emperor of the West. 

This ancient pedigree was furnished by William 
Downing Bruce, Esq., who says it was copied from an 
ancient parchment roll with arms, at the time of Charles 
the First, which he discovered among the papers of the 
late Hamlin Adams, Esq., of Middleton Hall, M. P., from 
the county of Carmathen. 

Sir John, Lord Ap Adam, was summoned to Parlia- 
ment 1296-1307, as Baron of the Realm. 

In the upper part of a Gothic window in Tidenham 
Church, near Chepstow, the name of Lord Ap Adam, 
1310, and his coat of arms, are still to be found beautifully 
executed in stained glass of great thickness and in perfect 

This church, which the author had the pleasure of 
visiting quite recently, orinigally stood within the bound- 
ary of Wales, which at a later period was changed, and 
it now stands on English soil. 

Ap Adam, (the first) came out of the "Marches of 
Wales". Lords of the Marches were noblemen who in 
in the early ages inhabited and secured the Marches of 

Wales and Scotland, ruling as petty Kings, with their 
private laws. 

The coat of arms, borne by Sir John, Lord Ap Adam, 
is the same as that brought by Henry Adams when he 
emigrated to America in 1632, and religiously preserved 
by his descendants; so it seems highly probable that he 
may have been a descendant of Sir John. 

Mr. Henry Lea, the eminent genealogist, has recently 
published the result of his investigations in England, 
where he found two records of an Henry Adams which 
more probably relate to our Henry Adams, first, of 
America. In the will of John Adams, of Barton, St. 
David in 1603, he makes his son Henry Adams his ex- 

Barton St. David is about two miles distant from 
Charlton Adam, (England). In Charlton-Mockrell, one- 
half mile distant from Charlton Adam, was found the 
marriage record of Henry Adams and Edith Squire. 

If this was the marriage of Henry of Braintree, she 
was his second wife; The fact that his eldest son was 
born in 1604, and the second not until 1612, leaves an 
interval not otherwise explained. 

Edith Squire was born in Charlton-Mockrell in 1587. 
Researches of Mr. Lea would indicate that Henry Adams 
and his family came from Kingweston, a neighboring 
locality. Mr. Lea says: "I fully agree that we have 
located Henry Adams the emigrant, in this part of 
Somersetshire ; but all except one of the records of King- 
weston, relating to the Adams famiHes are missing. 

This one is as follows: 

"Kingweston, 1622, Johnnes Adams, filius Henrici 
Adams, baptizat. d. Dec. 31, 1695." 

The Rev. Hiram Fairbanks, who spent many years 
in extensive researches in the counties of Devon and 
Somersetshire, as well as in this country, publishes this 
record : 



"John Shepheard, of Braintree, in New England, 
carpenter, husband of Margaret, the daughter of Henry 
Squire," late of Kingweston, in Somersetshire, granted 
a power of attorney to John Adams of Concord to receive 
all rents for lands now or late in the tenure of Johnathan 
Adams, living near Salisbury, in Somersetshire, England. 

As to the social status of Henry Adams of Braintree, 
he was without doubt a yeoman. Westcote, in his 
"Devonshire" written in 1630, says: "Many of these, 
with us are gentlemen, descending from younger broth- 

The will of Henry Adams was proved June 8, 1647, 
and is as follows: 

First, my will is that my sonne Peter and John, and 
my daughter Ursula, shall have the ground in the neck, 
both upland and meadow during the term I was to enjoy 
it, until it return into the towns hands again from whom 
I had it: also the aker in the mill fields: my will is that 
my books shall be divided amongst all my children; 
that my wife shall have and enjoy all my other goods so 
long as she live unmarried; and if she marry, then my 
will is that Joseph, Edward, and my daughter Ursula, 
should enjoy all my grounds in the field that lieth on the 
way to Weymouth-ferry, and my house lott, with all the 
houses and fruit trees, and all my movables, at the death 
or marriage of my wife; provided, they and their mother, 
shall pay to my son Samuel that which is due him for the 
ground I bought of him, to be paid in convenient time: 
But in case of God soe deal with my wife, that she bee 
constrained to make use of something by way of sale, 
she may. 

Finally, for movables my will is, that my sonne 
Peter and John, shall have an equal share with my sonne 
Joseph and Edward, and my daughter Ursula.

(From "Some Colonial Homesteads and Their Stories," 
by Marion Harland). By permission of the author. 

"In 1630, the good ship "Mary and John," chartered 
by the English company that had in charge the Mas- 
sachusetts Bay Colony, brought to Boston a young man 
by the name of Robert Pierce. Professor J. M. Pierce 
of Harvard, says: A high degree of uniformity exists in 
the spelling as used by persons bearing the name in any 
one family connection. 

The branch which sprang from Robert Pierce has 
consistently, for nine generations, given the preference 
to the method of spelling the name which will be used in 
this paper, but as the very able "Peirce Genealogy" 
compiled by Frederick Clifton Peirce, of Rockford, 
Illinois, proves, the parent stock was the same. 

The first patent granted by the Council of Plymouth 
of land in New England, was to John Pierce, of London, 
and his associates, dates June 1, 1621. This was a 
roaming patent, granting 100 acres for each settler 
already transported. 

Under this roaming patent, Robert settled on what 
was called "Pine Neck" — so runs the MS. Genealogical 
record kept in the homestead — "near the water." The 
cellar of his house was to be seen there untill 1804. In 
1640 he built (in Dorchester, Mass.) another dwelling. 
At that time Robert Pierce's house and the Minot house 
on the adjoining farm, were the only houses in this part 
of the country. The road from Boston to Plymouth was 


up Oak Avenue (directly past Robert's door) and near 
the old well, crossing Neponset River at a fording- place 
near the Granite Bridge. 

Robert married Ann Greenway, daughter of one of 
the first settlers of Dorchester, generally known as "Good- 
man Greenway." 

John Greenway, or, according to the boundless 
license in the matter of orthography prevalent at that 
date, Grenway, or Greenaway, was a fellow passenger 
of Robert Pierce, and, it is supposed, was accompanied 
by his whole family. Robert Pierce married his daughter 
just before, or just after the voyage to America. 

"Ann was born in England in 1591, and lived to the 
uncommon age of 104 years. She died December 31, 

Robert's death is thus set down: 
"Robert Pierce of ye greate lotts, died January 11, 
1664. The descendants of Robert of Dorchester, have 
been men of substance, being industrious and frugal, and 
have held a respectable rank in society, having inter- 
married with many of the best families in Dorchester 
and vicinity." 

Thus a part of the quaint introduction to the family 
history made out by a descendant of the young English- 
man who was freeman of the town of Dorchester in May, 
1642. Painstaking research on both sides of the sea, on 
the part of members of the family, and comparison of 
old records and heraldic devices have brought to light 
some curious and interesting facts antedating Robert 
Pierce's voyage to the New World. 

These show the name to have been originally Percy, 
or Percie, and Robert of Dorchester to have been col- 
laterally related to the Percys of Northumberland. 
Master George Percie, who won distinction for himself, 
and stability for John Smith's Virginian Colony, was a 
blood relation. His name appears again and again in the 

genealogical table, even down to the tenth generation of 
Robert's descendants. There is a tradition connecting 
the ancestry of the Dorchester freeholder with that of 
Harry Hotspur. 

It is certain that among the effects brought from the 
old country, in the "Mary and John" was the coat-of- 
arms, the crest of which is given on another page. A 
faded copy of great age, still hangs in the old homestead 
in Oak Avenue, Dorchester. 

The house built by Robert Pierce in 1640, is still 
standing; "The frame is of Massachusetts 

black oak," grown in "ye greate lotts." The beams, 
twelve by fourteen inches thick, are pinned together 
like the ribs of a ship, and cross heavily the low-browed 
wainscoted rooms. In the spacious parlor built by 
Colonel Samuel, there are nine doors. Forty years ago, 
the big fireplace in the family sitting-toom was altered 
to suit modern needs, and the beam running across the 
throat of the chimney taken out. It was black as as 
ebony, and as hard as lignum vitae. Cups, and other 
small articles were turned out of the wood as souvenirs, 
and distributed in the family. The removal of the 
ancient timber revealed a cavity in the masonry above, 
left by taking out one brick. Within it, set carefully 
side by side, was a pair of dainty satin slippers, the 
knots of ribbon on the insteps as perfect as when they 
were hidden away there — perhaps two hundred years 

Did Ann Greenway bring them from England, and 
devise the queer receptacle to secure the cherished bit of 
finery from Indian "sneak thieves," or did Mary inherit 
them and conceal them from envious neighbors? Did 
one of the Abigails, or Sarahs, or Hannahs, or Marys, or 
Elizabeths, whose names are repeated in successive gen- 
erations, tuck the pretty foreign things into a hole in the 
wall for safe keeping on the eve of a journey or visit, 

and return to find that, while she was away, they had 
been unwittingly walled in and up, as irretrievably as 
Marion's "Injured Constance" in the monastery vault? 

The right end of the building was added by Colonel 
Samuel Pierce, and contains a spacious parlor with 
colonial furnishings. 

Robert of Dorchester preserved, as long as he lived, 
a shipbiscuit brought from England by him in 1630. 
It is still treasured in the old house and is undoubtedly 
the "ripest" bread in America. Beside it, in the glass 
case made to keep it in, lies a corn-cob, used, for a gen- 
eration, in shelling of corn by the first Samuel Pierce, who 
married Abigail Moseley in 1702. Other rehcs are 
sacredly kept under the roof-tree which, for more than 
two and a half centuries, has sheltered owners of the 
same blood and name. Among them are a stand and 
chest of drawers brought over in the "Mary and John", 
a Malacca cane, silver-banded, with an ivory head; a 
tall clock, a desk, and a mirror with beveled edges, which 
may have formed part of the plenishing of Ann Greenway. 
We cannot help building a little romance in connection 
with the long voyage taken by "Goodman Greenway" 
and his family, in company with young Robert. 

"For divers good causes and considerations me there- 
unto moving, and specially for the great love and fatherly 
affection that I bear unto my sonne-in-law Robert 
Pearse, and Ann Pearse, my daughter — " is the preamble 
of the will which bequeaths to them a goodly estate.

children, among the first settlers of the Massachusetts

Their names were enrolled among the earliest mem- 
bers of the first church in that town, which was gathered 
as early as 1632, where they may be seen at this day. 

He was admitted freeman, May 14, 1634, and lived 
in Roxbury until about 1640, when he removed his 
family to Braintree, (now Quincy), Massachusetts. 

He was admitted a member of the "First Congrega- 
tional Church," having been dismissed and recommended 
to them from the church in Roxbury. 

He was chosen and ordained the first deacon of the 

church in Braintree, which office he held for about fifty 

Deacon Samuel Bass was a man of strong and vigor- 
ous mind and was one of the leading men of the town for 
many years. (See History of Quincy). 

He departed this life upon the thirteenth day of Sept., 
1694, and was the father and grandfather, and great- 
grandfather of one hundred and sixty-two children 
before he died. The graves of Samuel and Ann Bass 
may be seen today, marked by small stones, upon which 
their names are distinctly cut, in the old cemetery 
belonging to the First Church, at Quincy Massachusetts.
