TO 

MY CHILDREN 

AND THEIR LIVING NEAR RELATIVES. 

AND TO THE 

MEMORY OF THEIR ANCESTRAL DEAD 

THIS WORK IS 

AFFECTIONATELY INSCRIBED 

BY THE AUTHOR 



TO THE END THAT WHAT HAS BEEN COLLECTED CON- 
CERNING WHO THE LIVING ARE AND THE DEAD WERE, 
AND FROM WHENCE BOTH CAME, MAY BE PRESERVED 



PREFACE 

It may be stated that the following work, in plan and scope, 
is not what, at first, I had in mind to compile. My ideal of 
a family genealogy has been and is — to take the name of an 
ancestor who seated a family in the New World, and make 
that name the trunk line of the work, placing the immigrant 
and his wife as generation one in the work. Then I would 
run the lines of those first American ancestors back in the 
Old World as far as practically possible. Next, I would find 
and place all their descendants in America, irrespective of 
the changes in names through marriage. In coming down 
the line, when one in it is found to have married, I would 
trace the lines of the family, of him or her, thus allied to the 
trunk line, straight back, at least to the come-over, and over 
the seas if data were available. 

Perhaps it is not possible to attain the measure of fullness 
here indicated under any circumstances likely to attend one 
undertaking it. But, be this as it may, I dislike the idea of 
a partial history of the descendants of an ancestor ; and 
especially, when, from any cause, the parts omitted are a con- 
siderable portion of the whole. Such would, of necessity, 
have been the case, had I, with the material in hand, in any 
past stage of my search, compiled a genealogy of the 
descendants of Joseph 1 and Alice (Pepper) Clark, or of 
Lawrence' and Lydia (Townsend) Copeland, or of both, or 
of any other first American ancestors of my children. 

It, therefore, became necessary to suspend the work on a 
genealogy, such as was at first contemplated, awaiting needed 
data, much of which, I had begun to suspect, might not be 



vi pkrface; 

found to become available in my time. In this view, and in 
order that much of the material collected might be more 
surely preserved than it would be likely to be, if left in pro- 
miscuous manuscripts, it occurred to me that I would arrange 
a partial history of the ancestors of my own, and quite a 
goodly number of other nearly related children, tracing, in 
the arrangement, as many lines back, as I could and have 
them, as single straight lines, complete, that is to say, with 
no generation missing. Hence the following compilation. 
In it are traced some 54 such lines, from the youngest gener- 
ations now living, to some one of their immigrant ancestors, 
who were of the earliest settlements in America. 

Upon most of these lines the treatment is much broader 
than single straight lines, and includes all those persons 
found, who come within near degrees of relationship to the 
single lines traced. While the labor of tracing backward 
these related lines was not, in the first place, undertaken, as 
preparatory to, nor, as before stated, with the view then to 
this compilation ; yet, such family lines as ha,ve been traced 
through, from the present time back to the come-over are 
here utilized as warp of the web of the work. For woof, 
such material as has been found along the warp lines is used. 

Any one, in tracing, ancestorially, no farther back than 
to the 1 1 tli generation preceeding his own, will find, if there 
has been no intermingling of the lines by the marriage of 
parties related by consanguinity, 4094 persons from whom he 
is descended ; 204S of these would be his great, great, great, 
great, great, great, great, great, great grand-parents. The 
other 2046 would be apportioned to the intervening genera- 
tions, according to the rules of geometrical progression. He 
would have two parents, four grand and eight great grand- 
parents, and so on, doubling at each generation, as the 
search is extended backward, or goes on up the lines. 

In the work following, doubtless, errors have crept in ; it 
would, perhaps, be singular if there had not ; but it will be 



PREFACE VII 

a source of ample gratification should the researches and the 
records here made of them serve, in some measure, to per- 
petuate the memories of such of those who early seated 
families in the New World, and of such of their descendants, 
as have been traced and herein placed. The record 
embraces some of the early founders, and, in later genera- 
tions, workmen upon the State Structure of America, — work 
of the People and not of Kings or Emperors — wherein all 
did well their parts; grew weary by the way, and — 

" To reach that realm on the other shore 
Have passed through a transient gloom ; 
Have walked unseen, unhelped, alone. 
Through that covered bridge — the tomb."

EXPLANATIONS 



The use of a superior figure, that is, a numeral a little 
above and at the right of a name, indicates the American 
generation, the bearer of the name was, or is, in. 

Where the sign - - is used in the left-hand margin before a 
name or names, it indicates that the person or one or more of 
the persons next named, is or are ancestors of my children.

LINE OF CLARK 



After long search, much of it at first naturally enough mis- 
directed, the trail was struck leading back to our first Ameri- 
-\- can ancestors, Joseph' and Alice (Pepper) Clark. These 
tracings find that he was born in 1597, in Suffolk County, 
England, where the family had long been seated. From 
whence the wife, Alice, came to the New World, in so far as 
I have been able to learn, is not known. 

Augustus Peck Clarke, A. M., M. D., of Cambridge, 
Mass., who places himself in the line of descendants of 
Joseph 1 and Alice (Pepper) Clark and in the ninth generation, 
in his "Clarke's Kindred Genealogies," finds that Joseph 
Clark 1 was among the first settlers of the Dorchester Com- 
pany, coming to America in the ship " Mary and John," with 
the Winthrop party in 1630; and that he came from Suffolk 
County, England. 

Referring to the Dorchester, Mass. town records, under 
date of Nov. 22, 1634, Dr. Clarke says "Joseph Clarke (his 
name in the records is spelled with the final " e ") and twelve 
other persons are mentioned as having a 'grant of six acres 
of land for their small and great lotts, at Naponset, betwixt 
the Indian field and the mill.' " 

Dr. Clarke then finds that subsequently to the above grant, 
Joseph Clark removed to Dedham, Mass., and was one of the 
earliest settlers of that town, and quotes, as also does Rev. 
E. O. Jameson in his history of Medway, Mass., from Ded- 
ham records, Vol. 1, page 112, as follows: 

"Dedham, ye 28 of ye 7 month called September, 1640, 
whereas, Edward Alleyen hath granted unto Joseph Clark " 



TO LINK OF CLARK 

(Clarke uses the final "e;" Jameson does not,) "one acre of 
ye land next Vine Brook, towards the North for setting his 
house upon we do grant unto said Joseph one acre of ye land 
to adjoin thereunto for to make an house lot. And we do 
grant unto the sayed Joseph Clark six acres of planting 
ground to be beyond Vine Brook to be set off by the afore- 
said men that we appointed to perform for Henry Wilson, 
provide that he subscribe to the town orders." 

The Jameson history of Med way finds that Joseph Clark, 
the ancestor of the Clarks of that town and vicinity, came 
from Suffolk County, England, with his wife, Alice (Pepper) 
Clark, in 1640, and settled in Dedham. His eighth child, 
John 2 , born in Medfield, in 1652, married in 1679, Mary Shef- 
field, of Sherborn, and settled in Medway, originally a part of 
Medfield. The history of Medfield, by William S. Tilden, 
finds that Joseph Clark was one of the earliest residents of 
Dedham, as well as one of the thirteen original settlers of 
Medfield. 

It may be noted that Tilden does not attempt to trace 
Joseph Clark, back of his Dedham settlement, while Jame- 
son says he came from England in 1640 and settled in Ded- 
ham. While it is true he did settle in Dedham in 1640, it is 
also true that he had previously settled in Dorchester. The 
error of Jameson is not an unnatural one, in view of the fact 
that he was compiling a town history, and it probably did 
not occur to him that Joseph Clark made Dedham his place 
of second settlement. So he started with the Dedham grant 
of land to Clark in 1640. 

The Winthrop party of 1630, as history informs us, was 
comprised of 'about 300 of the best Puritan families' in 
England. They settled early, in Dorchester, Roxbury, 
Watertown, Cambridge, Salem, Concord, Medfield, Medway, 
Billingham, Needham, Boston, Walpole, and many other 
places in Mass. The first reinforcement to the original 
Winthrop Colony was in 1635, and the Dorchester grant of 



UNE OP CLARK II 

land to Joseph Clark, was in 1634; therefore he must have 
been of the 1630 immigration . There does not seem to have 
been, in the Dorchester Plantation, prior to 1635, any other 
Joseph Clark, than our Joseph 1 . From the history of 
Dorchester in the list of settlers there previous to January, 
1635 are found the names of Joseph and Bray Clark. The 
name of Bray Clark appears in the Dorchester records in 1634. 
There was a Thomas Clark who appears in the same records 
in 1638, in which year he was made freeman. He subse- 
quently removed to Boston, where he became a prominent 
and respected citizen. Dr. Clarke finds warrant for stating 
that Joseph 1 , Thomas and Bray were brothers; but this seems 
to rest more in theory than in proof. He founds his theory of 
the "three brothers," upon that of Dr. Harris, who founds 
upon the inscription on a gravestone erected, he says, to 
their memory as follows: 

" Here lie three Clarks, their accounts are even. 
Entered on earth and carried up to heaven." 

An examination of the parish records in Suffolk County, 
England, would probably prove or disprove the claim, that 
Joseph 1 , Thomas and Bray Clark were brothers. 

The first State record concerning Med field, Mass., bears 
date May 22, 1650. Originally Medfield was a part of Ded- 
ham, and the first settlement in what is now Medfield was 
called " Dedham Village." As stated, as to Medfield, there 
were thirteen original pioneers, for whom, June 10, 1650, the 
committee laid out thirteen house lots. Joseph Clark 1 , was 
one of this number, and the laying out as to him was — 

"6. To Joseph Clark, ten acres abutting upon James 
Allen towards the North West." 

Ever after the above laying out, Joseph Clark 1 lived in 
Medfield. He built a house on the west side of South St. ; 
was made a freeman in 1652 ; was Selectman in 1660, and 
died in 1684. His widow, Alice or Alse, as it was sometimes 
written, died in 1710. 



12 LINE OF CLARK 

THE NAME: WITH OR WITHOUT THE FINAL "c" 



Genealogists seem to be agreed that the name, Clark, had 
its derivation in the place, calling or office of clerk. 
Anciently, but on this side of the name-making period, the 
name was spelled Gierke, Clerk, Clarke and Clark. No 
doubt, in " ye olden time," the custom was, in probably a 
majority of instances, to use the final "e" in writing this 
name, as it then was to use it at the end of a great variety of 
words where the modern rule rejects it. For example, an 
actual count of words on pages taken at haphazard, of Brad- 
ford's History of Plymouth, originally called " The Log of the 
Mayflower," -(pity the name was changed) — there are found 
an average of twelve words to a page taken, using the final 
"e " where now the ride rejects it. 

A letter addressed to the librarian of Dedham, Mass. 
Historical Society, inquiring how the ancestor, Joseph Clark 1 
signed the covenant, brings the reply that "it appears writ- 
ten in full, 'Joseph Clarke.'' Joseph Clark' was one of the 
signers, in if>49. °f the preamble and four articles of agree- 
ment that were the beginning of, and resulted in, the found- 
ing of Medfield, Mass. In this signing the final "e" is not 
used. 

In the Suffolk County, Mass., Probate records, relating to 
+ the estates of Joseph Clark', Joseph 2 , Joseph 5 , Joseph 4 , and 
Joseph 5 , being those of father, son, grandson, great grandson 
and great, great grandson, where an autograph signature of 
one of them is found, it is without the final " e." The same 
records, relating to the estate of Joseph- Clark' show that the 
court officers used the final "e" in writing the name, and 
that they wrote the word year, 'yeare," and also spelled 
Suffolk with the final " e." 

Dr. Clarke, referred to above, finds warrant for and uses 
the final "e." 



LINE OF CLARK 13 

Rev. Pitt Clarke, born in 1763, and graduated from 
Harvard in 1790, and ordained as minister in Norton, Mass., 
in 1793, who died in the pastorate, Feb. 13, 1835, wrote his 
name with the final " e." Counting Joseph Clark 1 as genera- 
tion one in America, Rev. Pitt Clarke was of the sixth, his 
line back being : Rev. Pitt Clarke 6 , Jacob 5 , David 4 , Solomon 3 , 
Joseph-, Joseph 1 . His line and ours divided at Joseph 2 . 

Rev. Pitt Clarke 6 left an autobiography, which appears in 
full in Rev. George Faber Clark's history of Norton, Mass., 
beginning on page 186. This is a very interesting paper ; 
but, in so far as its tracing of ancestors is concerned, it 
well illustrates the futility of a tradition extending farther 
back than two, or at most four, busy generations. Mr. 
Clarke must have depended largely upon his fading impres- 
sions of a tradition more or less dim when it came to him ; if, 
indeed, his findings were not almost wholly a new revelation. 
He says, "I was born in Medfield, Mass., Jan. 15, 1763. 
My father's name was Jacob. He was one of three brothers 
whose grandfather came from England and settled in the 
north of Wrentham. My grandfather came to Medfield and 
purchased a farm in the south part of that town by his own 
industry. He had three sons and three daughters. He gave 
his sons the names of Nathan, Jacob and David, from a kind 
of veneration for those scriptural characters." 

Thus, while the Rev. Pitt Clarke places himself as of the 
fourth generation in America, of a Clark line he does not 
attempt to trace, otherwise than to give the name of his 
father, Jacob, and that of two of his paternal uncles, 
Nathan and David Clark, the little he does give clearly 
places him in the line of the descendants of Joseph Clark 1 
and of the sixth generation in the latter line, as given 
above. The grandfather of Rev. Pitt, was David 4 David 4 
had, as the autobiography states, three sons, named as 
therein recorded. He also had two other sons, Solomon and 
Ichabod, and six, instead of three, daughters, all born in 



14 LINE OF CLARK 

Medfield, Mass. The son, [chabod, though not recorded in 
Medfield, is mentioned in his father's will. Why there was 
no mention in the autobiography, of the two sons of David 4 , 
Solomon and Ichabod, inasmuch as both are venerable Bible 
names, does not appear, but may be accounted for through 
the vague uncertainties of tradition. 

Dr. Clarke's quotation from the Dedham land grants to 
Joseph Clark' of 1640, has, and Jameson's history of Med- 
way, giving the same records has not, the final "e." The 
histories of both Medfield and Medway, in their treatment 
of Joseph Clark' and his descendants, reject the final "e." 

Dr. Clarke finds the following : 

' In the Parish of St. James, Clerkenwell, occurs, under 
date of Nov. 19, 1587, the name of Thomas Clerke, son of 
Rumbold Clerk, christened. Aug. 12, 1608, John Clerke, 
son of Thomas Clark, was christened." 

It is seldom, if ever, latterly, that this name is written 
with the third letter "e" instead of "a;" and a fair sum- 
ming up of the final "e" question seems to be, that while 
the rule of modern orthography clips it from most words 
formerly carrying it, a Clark, inasmuch as his name is his 
own, may reject, retain or add it, and in so doing have war- 
rant of much ancient precedent as well as modern usage. 
The tendency, however, for the past two hundred years, 
seems to have been to follow the rule and reject the final 
"e." Herein, in a reference to a Clark who uses the final 
"e," it is used, otherwise not. 

The Mass. Archives, Vol. 68, p. 86, show that on April 24, 
1676, Joseph Clark received as compensation for service in 
King Phillip's War, 9s. 4d., and on same date Hugh Clark, 
for like service received 7s. These payments were for ser- 
vices rendered the April before. At this time Joseph', was 
seventy-nine years of age, and rather old to do military duty. 
It is not unlikely that it was Joseph 2 , as at that time he would 



LINE OF CLARK 15 

have been thirty-four years old. Hugh Clark, mentioned 
above, at the date of the service, was sixty-three years of 
age. Hugh Clark came from England and was a resident of 
Watertown at the time of the birth of his eldest son, John, in 
1641, see "Records of the Descendants of Hugh Clark of 
Watertown, Mass., by John Clark, A. B., 1866." (Treated 
further.) 
_l_ Joseph', and Alice (Pepper) Clark were members of the

man in 1660; died in 1684. His widow, Alice, died in 1710.

1687. Elizabeth (Turner) Smith was the daughter of 
John Turner 1 , who removed from Roxbury, Mass., and 
was one of the thirteen who formed the settlement at 
Medfield. In the latter town he served five years as a 
selectman. 

About one half of Medfield was burned by the 
Indians in February, 1675. The following, regard- 
ing the death of Elizabeth (Turner) Smith, wife of 
Samuel 2 , is quoted from page 4S1 of Tilden's history 
of Medfield : 

" When the Indians made their attack upon the 
town, Elizabeth took her youngest child, then a year 
and a half old, in her arms and ran toward the fort. 
When a little way from the house, the savages over- 
took her, and killed her by a blow on the head. The 
child was thrown upon the ground, stunned, and left 
for dead, but recovered consciousness, and, when 
found, had crept to the dead body of its mother." 

This child was Samuel Smith', who was afterward 
chosen deacon of the church ; was twenty-one years a

-}- GENERATION 5. Joseph Clark*, (Joseph', Josephs, 

Joseph 2 , Joseph 1 ,) was born in Medfielcl, Mass., in 1720; 
married, in 1739, Elizabeth 4 , daughter of Eleazer and Eliza- 
beth (Talbot) Puffer of Dorchester, Mass. 

Eleazer Puffer, the father of Elizabeth, wife of Joseph Clark 5 , 
was born in Dedham, January 30, 16S4, and was a son of 
Matthias and Abigail (Everett) Puffer, married in Dedham, 
April 11, 1677, — (this was the second marriage of Matthias.) 
The father of Matthias was, undoubtedly, George Puffer, the 
immigrant, who, about the year 1639, had land, at Mount 
Wollaston, (later Braintree, now Onincy,) granted him for 
fine herds, in the name of Poffer. 

Eoring W. Puffer of Brockton, Mass., who places himself 
in the 7th generation of Puffer, in America — his line down 
being, George', James 2 (the elder brother of Matthias 2 ,) 
Jabez 3 , Samuel', Nathan 5 , Nathan and himself 7 , — finds war- 
rant for saying that the fine herds for whom the Mount 
Wollaston land was granted, were George Puffer' and wife, 
his two sons, James 2 and Matthias 2 , and a daughter. 

W. S. Appleton who places himself in the Puffer line com- 
ing down through Matthias 2 and his first wife, Rachel 
(Earnsworth) Puffer, in his book, "The Family of Puffer of 
Mass.," puts James and Matthias in the second generation 
and as sons of George 1 ; and, as he says, they probably were. 
Taken in connection with the above land grant records, this 
is most probable. The Puffer line down from and including 
George, the immigrant, to its connection with the line of 
Clark, would, therefore, be, George 1 , Matthias 2 and Abigail 
(Everett) Puffer, Eleazer 3 and Elizabeth (Talbot) Puffer, and 
Elizabeth (Puffer) Clark', wife of Joseph Clark 5 ia clark - 

From whence, or just when, George Puffer' came to 
America, has not been learned ; nor has it been found who 
his wife was. 

As stated above, Matthias Puffer 2 married, first, Rachel 
Earnsworth. This was at Braintree, March 12, 1662.

On July 10, 1675, Rachel (Farnsworth) Puffer and her son, 
Joseph were killed, at Mendon, by the Indians; and, on

Concerning Ichabod Clark 6 , the following is quoted from 
"Clarke's Kindred Genealogies" by A. P. Clarke, A. M., 
M. D., from pages 22 and 23 : 

"Captain Ichabod Clark " ( Dr. Clarke uses the final " e ") 
"served in the War of the Revolution. He appears with the 
rank of Sergeant on Muster and Pay Roll of Captain Benjamin 
Farrar's Company; Colonel Benjamin Hawes's Regiment for 
service at Rhode Island on the alarm given ; time of enlist- 
ment September 27, 1777, time of discharge October 29, 
1777 It was a march to Rhode Island on a secret

expedition. (See Rhode Island service, Vol. 2, p. 40, Mass. 
Archives.) He also served as a Lieutenant and Captain in 
the Continental line. He commanded a company of irregular 
Mounted Rangers, which he had raised for protecting farms 
and for guarding the borders of the State. He served in the 
army of General Sullivan, protecting military stores and 
property ; he was on duty at the battle of Rhode Island, 
August 29, [778 (See Year Book of the Ameri- 
can Revolution, 1893-4.) It seems that Captain Ichabod 
Clark, during the Revolutionary war, had service, not oidy 
in the army, but also in the navy, for his name appears again 
on the petition dated at Boston, July 31, 1782, given by 
Daniel Sargent and others, asking, that Ichabod Clark be 
commissioned as commander of the brigantine ' Elizabeth.' 

The petition was approved in Council (See Mass. 

Archives, Vol. 172, p. 182. The brig 'Elizabeth' here men- 
tioned as fitted out in 1782, was furnished with 15 men and 6 
guns, and was commanded by Ichabod Clark. (See notes on 
early ship-building in Mass. communicated by Captain 
George Henry Preble, U. S. N. with ' A complete list of 
the Public and Private Armed vessels, belonging to Mass., 
prior to the Revolution from 1636 to 1776, and of Armed 
vessels built or fitted out in Mass., from 1776 to 1783, 
inclusive.'" See N. E. His. Gen. Register, 1871, p. 363.) 
l> It will here be remembered that Naval engagements con- 
tinued to take place on the ocean during the Revolutionary 
War until near the close of the year 1782; and that Gen. 
Washington did not issue the proclamation of peace until 
the 19th of April, 1783, precisely eight years after the bat- 
tle of Lexington."

water, Maine, and Williams, Arizona, and who died at the

was a daughter of Nathan 7 , and Nancy (Hart) Clark, and a 
granddaughter of Ichabod 6 and Phebe (Sprague) Clark. And, 
besides, this order is corroborated, by the public records, in 
so far as I have found them. The will of Ichabod Clark 6 , 
(see Hampshire County, Mass., records, box 31, case 40,) 
dated March 28, 18 14, probated in 1S27, mentions his family 
in the following order, — 1st, wife Phebe; 2nd, sons, Seth, 
Nathan and Josiah ; 3rd, daughters, Anna Aldrich, Lucy 
Darling and Lucinia Weatherhead. It will be noticed that 
the children mentioned in the records and in the will are the 
same in name and number. It is therefore, evident that 
Ichabod mentions his sons' names first in his will, without 
regard to the order of births.

-f- Captain Jacob Hart, with his family, removed from 

Walpole, Mass., to Hold en, now, (then Orrington, ) Maine, 
about the year 1800. He was a soldier in the Revolution, 
and subsequently a pensioner. In January, 1782, the 
General Court of Mass. gave him three notes for services, as 
Sergeant, in the army, each for 23 pounds, 6 shillings and 5 
pence ; the first pa\ able in 1784 ; the second in 1785, and the 
third, in 1786 By forgery, some one obtained payment of 
the notes ; but the Court by a Resolve bearing date June 14, 
1792, authorized payment to Hart, then residing at Walpole. 
Captain Hart settled in that part of Orrington which is 
now Holden, and in honor of him the place was called "The 
Hart Neighborhood ' He made a farm, erected a house and 
out-buildings, on the road leading from the Congregational 
Church at " The Center," up over the southerly slope of 
Potash Hill, past the residences of General John Blake, John 
Farriugton and Silas Winchester — all soldiers of the Rev- 
olution — to what was originally Gilmore's, and later 
George's Corner, in Holden, near the Eddington and Dedham 
lines. Blake and Farriugton were from Wrentham, and 
Winchester from Brookline, Mass. Winchester's wife was 
Sally, daughter of Samuel King of Wrentham, and a sister 
of Jerusha (King) Hart, wife of Captain Jacob Hart. 

Besides Blake, Hart, Winchester and Farriugton, above 
named, there were five other Revolutionary Soldiers settled 
in what is now the town of Holden, viz: Isaac Clewley, 
Ebenezer Fisher, Samuel Gilmore, Major Thomas George, 
and David Mann.

LINE OF COPELAND 



In the Copeland line, Eliza Ann (Copeland) Clark, wife of 
Harvey Dexter Clark*, was of the 6th generation in America, 
counting the immigrants, Lawrence and Lydia (Townsend,) 
Copeland, as the 1st. Lawrence Copeland 1 is the ancestor of 
nearly all the Copelands in the United States. In fact, in 
my researches, which have been quite extensive, I have 
found but one of the name who is not in the line of the 
descendants of Lawrence 1 , and that is Dr. W. L. Copeland of 
866 West Monroe St., Chicago, 111., who writes, under date 
of Jan'y 19, 1899, that his father and grandfather came to 
this country from the north of Ireland about 75 years ago 
and settled in Lewiston, N. Y. 

Lawrence Copeland 1 came to America at some time 
previous to Oct. 12, 165 1. So far as I have been able to learn, 
research has not brought to light when he came, from whence, 
what ship he'came in or where he landed. The first record 
of him found is that of his marriage, by Mr. Hibbins of Bos- 
-|- ton, "the twelfth day of the tenth month, 1651," to Lydia 
Townsend. It is quite probable that Lydia (Townsend) 
Copeland was a daughter of Thomas Townsend', who 
came from London, England, about 1637 and settled in Lynn, 
Mass., and that Lawrence Copeland 1 was of Lynn at the time 
of his marriage. Charles Henry Townsend of New Haven, 
Ct., in his "Townsend Family of Lynn, in Old and New 
England," revised 4th Ed. 1884, on page 6, has the following: 
" This Thomas Townsend had sons, Thomas 2 , Samuel 2 , John 2 
and Andrew 2 . He also may have had, (by first wife, ) Robert 
of Porstmouth, 1655, when he signed as one of the supporters 



4-0 LINE OF COPRLAND 

of the jurisdiction of Mass.; and daughter Lydia, who 
married Lawrence Copeland of Lynn, 'ye 12, 10, 1651 ; also 
Elizabeth, married to Samuel Mariam Dec. 22, 1669, and, 
also, perhaps, Mary, a member of Samuel Gardner's family 
in 1661." Page 54, of this work states that in 1650, Lydia 
Townsend was a member of Mr. Ruck's family, and that Mr. 
Ruck was next door neighbor to Mr. Thomas Townsend in 
Lynn. This was the year before her marriage to Lawrence 
Copeland 1 . 

While there is much to support a conclusion that Lydia 
(Townsend ) Copeland, was a daughter of Thomas Townsend, 
there is yet. in so far as my researches have gone, a missing 
link in the chain of evidence proving it Lydia, undoubtedly, 
was born in London, England. The early records of Lynn, 
Mass., have been lost or destroyed. It is doubtful if those 
records would furnish the missing link if now extant. They 
might, and probably would, give the marriage of Lawrence 
and Lydia (Townsend) Copeland. But, upon this point, the 
Lynn records are not needed ; for, at some time after his 
marriage in 165 1 , and 1654, Lawrence Copeland', settled in 
Braintree, Mass., and there, under date of June 10, 1654, the 
marriage was entered as follows: 

" Lawrence Copeland & Lydia Townsend were married the 
twelve day of the tenth month 165 1, married by Mr. Hibbins 
of Boston." 

As matter of interest and especially by way of preserving 
the clew as to Lydia (Townsend) Copeland 's line of ancestry, 
the following is quoted from Townsend : " Thomas Townsend 
of Lynn, was baptized Jan. 8, 1594. He was 3rd son of 
Henry, Gentleman, and Margret, Gentlewoman, (Forthe) 
Townsend, who were married at St John Zacharias, London, 
by Rev. Ambrose Golden, minister, Nov. 5, 1590, and said 
Margret was buried at Brocon-Ash, June 23, 1596, and was 
a daughter of Robert Forthe." 



LTNE OF COPELAND 41 

Should the parish records in London show that Thomas 
Townsend had a daughter, Lydia, born or baptised there, 
the evidence would be supplied. In any event the clue is one 
well worth preserving, as a field note, for use in a verification 
of a seemingly quite probable theory. It may be added here 
that, should future research prove that Lydia was daughter 
of Thomas Townsend of Lynn, such proof will clear the 
way for some interesting research in tracing the line of Lydia 
( Townsend ) Copeland back in England. 

As before stated, Lawrence Copeland 1 settled in Braintree, 
land originally belonging to Boston, called Mount Wollaston. 
The Entry upon the Braintree records of the births of the 
first two children of Lawrence 1 and Lydia ( Townsend ) 
Copeland was made at the same time and in 1654, and at 
about the same time and by the same clerk who entered the 
marriage of the latter. This indicates that the record of the 
marriage, and the birth of the first child was, for a time, 
neglected, or that the record was made in Braintree as soon 
as the family had effected a settlement there. 

To their first child, a son, Lawrence and Lydia (Townsend ) 
Copeland gave the name of Thomas. This son lived but a 
month. Their next child, also a son, they called Thomas. 
Perhaps these facts somewhat strengthen the probability that 
Lydia was a daughter of Thomas Townsend, and that she 
gave her first two sons, (the first one dying in infancy,) the 
name of her father. In any event, this seems of snffiicient 
weight to merit mention, as it may serve as a blaze on the 
line of the trail in some future attempt to make certain. 

In preserving all that may serve as spots along the line of 
future researches, concerning the Copeland line, the follow- 
ing may be mentioned: There is, A. D. 1900, and, for 20 
years or more, has been, a Copeland Association in Knox 
County, Maine, holding annual reunions. This Association 
was instituted and has been kept up by the descendants of 
two brothers, Moses and Joseph Copeland, of the 4th genera-

tion in America, counting Lawrence as the ist. This line 
down to and including said Moses and Joseph is : gen. i, 
Lawrence and Lydia (Townsend) Copeland; gen. 2, William 
and Mary (Bass) (Webb) Copeland, she was the widow of 
Christopher Webb, Jr., a daughter of John 2 and Ruth 
(Alden 2 ) Bass, and a granddaughter of John 1 and Priscilla 
(Mollins 2 ) Alden, Mayflower pilgrims; gen. 3, David and 
Elizabeth (New comb or Bent — I have not been able to 
make certain which) Copeland; gen. 4, Moses and Joseph. 
Moses and Joseph Copeland were sons of David 3 , and, about 
the year 1763, settled in Warren, Maine, and have a numer- 
ous posterity. Through the courtesy of Mrs. O. A. Mclntyre 
of Warren, and Mr. Leroy Copeland and his daughter, Mrs. 
G. A. Fletcher of Albion, Maine, (all in this Copeland line,) 
I have been furnished some abstracts from the records of 
their association, among them the following: — 

"Genealogy of the Copelands. The Copeland family 
trace their ancestry to Sir John Copeland, who fought at the 
battle of Neville's Cross, under Edward III, Oct. 17, 1347, 
and with his own hand captured King David of Scotland, 
whom he bore from the field with a company of attendants, 
and, proceeding to Calais, delivered him into the hands of 
his royal master then in France. For this service he was 
created a baronet by the King and given a pension of five 
hundred pounds per annum. He was also made warden of 
Berwick, sheriff of Northumberland and keeper of Boxboro' 
Castle. 

" Lawrence Copeland, a lineal descendant of Sir John, 
came to America, settled at Mount Wollaston, now Braintree, 
Mass., where he died Dec. 30, 1699, aged 1 10 years." 

Further inquiry of the parties named above, as to the trac- 
ing in America from Lawrence 1 , to Sir John in Northumber- 
land, England, brings from Mrs. Fletcher the reply that their 
records were made up from an article published in the 
Granite (N. H.) Monthly of Oct., 1S78, from data furnished 



LINE OF COPEUND 43 

by William Judson Copeland, Esq , a descendant of Lawrence', 
born in 1841, a lawyer, who settled, first, in Houlton, Maine; 
and lastly in Berwick, Maine, and who died suddenly at 
middle age, being, at the period of his death, at work on a 
genealogy of the Copelands. Letters sent to the supposed 
surviving members of his family, inquiring concerning this 
work and the authenticity of the tracing back to Sir John in 
England of the line of Lawrence Copeland 1 referred to in the 
Knox County Copeland Association records, have not been 
heard from. But this much we have, — Lawrence Copeland 
was at the beginning of the American end of this line. And 
history gives John Copeland, a squire of Northumberland 
County, England, and the fact that he captured King David 
of Scotland, at the battle of Neville's Cross, in the year 1347. 
Copeland, it is learned, has not been a very common name 
throughout England, but has been rather a local one in 
Northumberland County. Therefore, that the line of 
Lawrence Copeland', in America, if traced back in England, 
should reach the hero of Neville's Cross, is within the realm of 
possibility if not of probability. However, as the tracings by 
the late William Judson Copeland, if he made them, cover- 
ing the three centuries intervening between Sir John 
Copeland and Lawrence, have not been procured for use here, 
and, inasmuch, as the merest hint is often all obtainable at 
first, in tracing a family line, the hints of the records and of 
the historical fact, above referred to, are here further pre- 
served, for the possible benefit of some future searcher along 
the line of Copeland. 

The Braintree records say that, " Lawrence Copeland, a 
very aged man, born in the Reigne of our Gracious Sover- 
reigne Queen Elizabeth of Blessed Memory, dyed December 
ye 30th, 1699." 

Tradition has it that Lawrence Copeland was 1 10 years old 
at the time of his death. The Quincy inscription says he 
died at the age of 100 years. The inscription is probably 
correct.

-f GENERATION 2. William Copeland 2 , (Lawrence 1 ,) 

born Sept. 15, 1656, in Braintree. He was the third son and 
child of Lawrence' and Lydia (Townsend) Copeland; mar- 
ried, April 13, 1694, Mary, widow of Christopher Webb, Jr., 
of Braintree, a daughter of John 2 and Ruth (Alden) Bass. 
On her paternal side, she was a granddaughter of Deacon 
Samuel Bass', who, with his wife Anne and one or two young 
children, were among the first settlers of the Mass. Bay Colony, 
coming to it about 1630. He settled first in Roxbury. rear 
Hoy Bridge. He and his wife were enrolled among the 
earliest members of the first church in that town, which was 



46 LINE OF COPELAND 

gathered as early as 1632. He was admitted freeman May 
14, 1634, and lived in Roxbury until about 1640, when he 
moved to Braintree, and was chosen and ordained the 
first deacon of the church there. In 1641, and subsequent 
years, he represented the town in the General Court, in all, 
twelve years. In the records of the doings and affairs of the 
town of Braintree, he is frequently mentioned. 

The following is the record of his death, taken, verbatim, 
from page 660, of printed records of Braintree: 

' Decon Samuel Bass, aged 94 departed this life, upon 
the 30th day of December 1694, who had bin a Decon of the 
Church of Braintree for the space of above 50 years and the 
first Decon of that Church, and was the father and grand- 
father and great grandfather of a hundred and sixty and two 
children before he died, the youngest whereof was Beniamin 
Bas, the son of Joseph Bas and Mary his wife born seven 
days before his Death." 

The " Beniamin Bas" of the record was Benjamin, son of 
Joseph, born eleven days before the death of Deacon Samuel 
Bass, and not seven days, as the record slates ; as the birth of 
Benjamin was Dec'r 19, 1694. 

Children of Deacon Samuel Bass' : 

1. Samuel-, married Mary Howard; died young, leaving 

one son, Samuel \ who had a family of eleven children. 

2. Hannah 2 , married Sept. 15, 165 1, Stephen Paine of 

Braintree; had seven children. 

3. Mary 2 , married in 1647, Captain John Capen of Dor- 

chester. She was the Captain's second wife and had 
seven children. 

4. John 2 , married Ruth Alden. (Treated further.)

and are all descendants of both Deacon Samuel Bass', 
and Hon. John' and Priscilla (Mollins) Alden, the last 
two named being of the 1620 Mayflower party. 
As to the place or places of residence of William Mollins, 
father of Priscilla, prior to the sojourn of the Pilgrims in Ley- 
den, Holland, but little seems to have been verified. Without 
doubt he was of the Leyden Congregation, at one time. 
According to Baird's History of Huguenot Emigration 
to America, Vol. 1, page 158, William Mollins was a 
Walloon, or French Huguenot. Baird says, " Wm. Mollins, 
and his daughter Priscilla, afterwards wife of John Alden, 
and Phillip De laNoye and others, remained in Leyden, when 
the French Huguenots went to Guiana." 

Mrs. Chas. L. Alden in her Alden Genealogy says, "I am 
inclined to think, that either William Mollins, or his wife Alice, 
were English, for after this they went to England and joined 
the Pilgrims there." The reason assigned by Mrs. Alden, 
namely, "for after this they went to England and joined the 
Pilgrims there," does not, as it strikes me, seem to overcome 
the statement of Baird, quoted above, and what further seems 
to me to be the probabilities; although, nevertheless, either, 
both or neither, may have been English. The fact that 
William Mollins left a will which was proved and allowed in 
Surry County, England, tends to prove no more than, — if he 
was French, — he had cast his lot, for church and perhaps

other reasons, in England, there to hold his home, even after 
the venture to America had been resolved upon, and until 
affairs in New England should become shaped, as they had not, 
at the time of his death, occurring, as Bradford says, "the first 
winter," early in 162 1. Doubtless the French spelling of the 
name was Molyne, rendered in English, Mollins or Mullins, 
— it has been spelled both ways, in being anglicized. 

-f- It seems, by the will of William Mollins, that he left 

back in England a married daughter, Sarah (Mollins) 
Blanden, and a son, William, Jr. This will provided that 
William Mollins, Jr., was to take his father's share of land in 
the Plymouth adventure, provided he, the son, should come 
to America. After the death of William, the father, William, 
the son, complied with this condition, received the land, and 
also other land granted him by Plymouth, in 1633. William, 
the younger, became a freeman in 1642; was on the list of 
soldiers in 1643; was of Middleborough in 1664, and died at 
Braintree, in 1672. The following is the Braintree record of 
his death : 

-f- . " William Mullings dyed the 12 mo. 12, 1672." 

If William Mollins was from Continental Europe, he, no 
doubt, was a Walloon. It is said that the name, Walloon, 
is from a river in France by that name. At any rate the 
Walloons resided near and on both sides of the boundary 
between France and Belgium, and spoke the French language. 
He probably at one time was of the French Church in Holland, 
located, first, at Amsterdam, where it remained about a year, 
and then, for twelve years, at Leyden. It must be concluded 
that, from some cause, he and some other French Huguenots, 
became allied with the English Church in the latter, if not 
in both, cities ; for he went with the English back to England, 
and thence, with them, to America. Perhaps he found the 
English, in their dealings and methods, more congenial. 
Bradford records that the magistrates of Eeyden commended 



50 LINE OF COPEUND 

the English and reproved the Walloons. Bradford's account 
of it here follows : 

' Ye magistrates of ye citie, about ye time of their coming 
away, or a little before, in ye publick place of justice gave 
this commendable testimony of them, in ye reproof of the 
Walloons, who were of ye French Church in ye citie. These 
English, said they, have lived amongst us now this 12 years, 
and yet we never had any sute or accusation come against any 
of them ; but your strifs ^c quarels are coutinuall." 

Of John Alden, as a Mayflower passenger, Gov. Bradford 
wrote : 

'John Alden was hired for a cooper, at South-Hampton, 
wher the .ship victuled ; and being a hopful yong man, 
was much desired, but left to his owne liking to go or stay 
when become here, but he stayed, and inaryed here." Brad- 
ford's His. of Plymouth, p. 533. 
Thirty years later Bradford wrote : 

"John Alden maried with Priscila, Mr. Mollines his 
daughter, and had issue by her as is before related. " Ibid, 

P 539. 

In going backwards, from South-Hampton, and 1620, in so 
far as I have been able to learn, the John Alden trail is lost; 
or, at least, has not been discovered. Doubtless, anything 
and everything written concerning him, prior to his shipping 
for a cooper on the Mayflower, and regarding his ancestry 
and nationality has been conjecture, with hardly a hint to 
build upon. Under this head Mrs. Charles L. Alden says: 
' I think he was of English stock, from the Southern part of 
England, as evidenced by 'marriages' in London, etc. The 
name occurs in Norway, spelled Auldin or Auldine. My 
sister, while travelling there, came across two little peasant 
boys ; one of them resembling my little son, John Alden. 
She was induced to ask his name, and was startled by the 
reply, 'Jan Aulden' ". Mrs. Alden also finds that the name 
of Alden is not uncommon in Germany. 



LINE OF COPEEAND 51 

The Rev. William Elliot Griffis, a former pastor of the Shaw- 
mut Congregational Church, Boston, and later a clergyman in 
Ithaca, N. Y., thinks John Akleii was Irish born and bred. 
He states that after considerable search, he is unable to find 
the name of Alden in the English towns and cities before the 
early part of the 17th century. He concludes that the 
Aldens, at first a Norman family, went over and settled in 
Ireland If it is a fact, that the name, Alden, does not appear 
in England prior to 1600, and does appear there later, of 
course it is evident that some of the name went over into 
England from somewhere, probably from Norway, Germany 
or Ireland. We, therefore, have pretty good grounds for the 
theory, that John, the Pilgrim, was, by extraction at least, 
either Norman, German or Irish. It has been rather 
assumed, but not proved, that he was English. It is along 
the line of the latter supposition that tradition has it that he 
" was of a fine type of the Saxon." 

In so far as I have been able to learn, John Alden left no 
hint as to his lineage or nationality. That he did not was, 
perhaps, characteristic of the man. So, too, he did not have 
the dates of the births of his children recorded. Those dates 
have been a matter of deduction from other facts. That the 
John Alden trail, in Europe, back of South-Hampton, has 
not been discovered, seems clear. So far as known, there 
are but few hints to guide the tracer. Any one may theorize 
upon the question ; but, until a verified trail is struck, we 
must take him up when and where the preserved facts find 
him, and where and when he found the Mayflower, at South- 
Hampton, in 1620. 

There was a Robert Alden, presumably of some place in 
England, in 1626, who, that year, was one of the 42, back in 
England, who agreed to sell their interest in the New 
Plymouth Adventure to those in America, and to such as should 
thereafter join them here. This Robert Alden may have been 
and probably was a stockholder in the enterprise at its incep- 



52 LINE OF COPKLAND 

tion and in 1620. It is possible and quite probable that John 
was a relative of Robert Alden, and through the latter learned 
of the expedition of the Pilgrims, found and joined the May- 
flower at South-Hampton, with, as Bradford informs us, the 
right to remain or to return with the ship. 

A few days before the Pilgrims landed, namely, on the 1 ith 
day of Nov., 1620, they signed what has been called "The 
Compact of the Pilgrims," which was to be, and, in fact, 
became the fundamental law for the government of the 
Colony. John Alden was one of the signers. From this tact 
we may infer that, before the lauding, he had concluded to 
cast his lot with the Mayflower party. It is said that he was 
the youngest signer of that memorable compact, and that, 
"at the time, he was about 22 years of age." Mrs. Charles 
L. Ahlen finds warrant for saying that John Alden was born 
in 1599; this would make him 21 years old in 1620. Tradi- 
tion has brought him down as then a stripling. President 
Adams, a descendant of John Alden, mentions him as "the 
stripling who first leaped upon the rock" (Plymouth Rock) 
at the landing. 

John Alden, young as he was, took a place in the front 
rank of the men of the Colony from the start, which proves 
that the estimation put upon him by the Mayflower band, at 
South-Hampton, namely, that he was a " hopful yong 
man," was correct. 

During the years 1626 and 1627 the members of the Adven- 
ture and the Signers of the Compact, residing at New 
Plymouth, negotiated for the stock, or interest, ol the owners 
back in England. These negotiations resulted in a sale by 
the non-resident to the resident owners and to such as the 
resident owners might determine could join them from time 
to time, as a sort of common weal or common wealth ; and it 
also resulted in a debt due the former from the latter of 1800 
pounds Sterling, with interest, at 30 per cent. The Colony 
and individuals contracted other debts in Kngland, chiefly, 



LINE OP COPEEAND 53 

if not wholly, in London, which drew from 30 to 60 per cent 
interest. It became impossible for the colonial organization 
to meet its payments at maturity, whereby its credit was 
becoming impaired. It was necessary that the credit of the 
Colony should be kept good in order to prevent the ruin 
thereof. Mrs. Charles L,. Alden finds warrant for saying that 
John Alden, with William Bradford, Isaac Allerton, Miles 
Standish, William Brewster, John Howland and others of the 
principal men of the Colony became surety for the payment 
of the public debt. The joint personal obligation of these 
men strengthened and saved the credit of the Colony. 

In 1624 a division of land took place among the colonists. 
A division of cattle was made in May, 1627. In this last 
division the family of John Alden is given as follows: 
"John Alden, Priscilla Alden, Elizabeth Alden 2 , aged 3, 
John Alden 2 , aged 1." This year (1627) John Alden 
removed to Duxbury, Mass. and "settled on the land which 
had been granted to him on the south side of Blue Fish river 
and built his house on a rise of land near Eagle Tree pond." 
The farm he made is said to have become the best one in 
Duxbury. 

John Carver was confirmed Governor of the Colony just 
before the landing in 1620. He died in office in April, 162 1. 
Soon after, William Bradford was chosen. At the time, 
Bradford was just recovering from a severe illness. For this 
reason " Isaack Allerton was chosen to be an Assistant unto 
him, who, by renewed elections every year continued sun- 
dry years together." 

Until the year 1624 the governor had but one official 
Assistant; in 1624 the Colony elected five, " giving the gov- 
ernor a dubble voyce, and afterwards they increased them to 
seven." 

The illness, then, of William Bradford, at the time of his 
elevation to the office of Governor of Plymouth, in 1621, 
was the cause of the institution of the body called "Assist- 



54 LINE OF COPELAND 

ants to the Governor," during colonial days, which, in the 
Federal States is known as "The Governor's Council." 

In his "Family Memorial, Part i, Genealogy of Fourteen 
Families of the Early Settlers of New England, by the Names 
of Alden, Adams, Arnold, Bass, Billings, Capen, Copeland, 
French, Hobart, Jackson, Paine, Thayer, Wales and White," 
Elisha Thayer says : "All these families are more or less 
connected by marriage and most of them, of late generations 
the descendants of John Alden." 

This work was published in 1N35, and Thayer informs us 
that the material used was " collected from ancient records, 
manuscripts and printed works." 

Thayer says that John Alden was an Assistant to all the 
governors of the Old Colony except Carver. The life of the 
Old Colony was from the signing of the Compact on board 
the Mayflower, New. ir, 1620, until 1692, when the charter 
uniting the Old Colony with that of Mass. arrived. From 
this time the governors and lieut. governors were appointed 
by Royal authority. The governmental rights of the two 
Colonies were infringed and suspended by the commission of 
King James to Sir Edmund Andros, for two years or less, 
beginning with Dec. 1686. On the coming of William and 
Mary to the throne of England, the rights of the Colonies 
were restored and elections continued until 1692 as above 
stated. Alden died in 1687, the next year after the arrival 
of Andros with the commission of James. Alden, then, did 
not live to see the rights and liberties of the people of his 
Colony restored, and died in the belief that those liberties 
were at an end. 

It seems to be agreed that John Alden was one of the 
Assistants to the Governor in 1633. That year Winslow was 
elected Governor. If Alden was upon the hoard of Assist- 
ants to Bradford it must have been previously to 1633. He 
was an Assistant for a number of years after 1633. From 
1640 to 1650 he was Representative from Duxbury to the 



LINE OF COPELAND 55 

General Court. In 1650, by election, he was made Assistant 
to the Governor again ; and so, for each succeeding year, he 
was elected to that office, until the coming of Andros in Dec, 
1686. This made him thirty-six consecutive elections, to the 
office of Assistant to the Governor. From 1666 to his dis- 
placement by the government of Andros, Alden was first on 
the board of Assistants, and was styled Deputy Governor, as 
it was a duty of his to act as governor in the absence of that 
officer. 

After the first few years of his American life, John Alden 
was almost continuously engaged in the public service, and 
had and held the confidence of his fellow colonists. In 
addition, and among other places of public trust and private 
responsibility, in the patent for Plymouth, in New England, 
dated January 16, 1629, and signed by Robert, Earl of War- 
wick, Myles Standish, Edward Winslow, John Howland and 
John Alden, or any of them, are named as the true and law- 
ful attornies of the Council established at Plymouth. 
Accordingly John Alden took possession in due form and 
delivered the full and peaceable possession and seizin of the 
same to William Bradford, Governor of the Old Colony. 
In 1653, and for several succeeding years he was also one of 
the Council of War, appointed on account of danger feared 
from the Indians. He was chosen Treasurer of the Old 
Colony in 1656, and held that office for three consecutive 
years. He often acted as arbitrator, and as a surveyor of 
lands for individuals and for the government. 

It is most probable the finding of Thayer, that John Alden 
was chosen Assistant unto all the Governors of the Old 
Colony, excepting Carver, is correct. If so, he was upon 
Bradford's Council of Assistants and was elected to the place 
earlier than 1633, since Bradford was not elected Governor 
after 1632. The finding that Alden was elected an Assistant 
in 1633 does not prove he was not elected as such earlier than 
that date. Mrs. Charles L. Alden says he was not an Assist 



56 IJXE OF COPET.AND 

ant from 1640 to 1650, and that during the period last named 
he was Representative to the General Court from Duxbury. 
I think it does not follow that he was not an Assistant while 
a Representative merely from the fact that he was a Repre- 
sentative ; because it does not appear that, at that time, the two 
offices last named were incompatible. It does appear that 
for the years 1656-7 and 8 Alden was an Assistant to the 
Governor and Treasurer of the Old Colony as well. 

The traditional courtship of Miles Standish, in which he, 
Alden and I'riscilla Mollins were the chief actors, and, in 
which Standish did not seem to do much of the wooing and 
diii less of the winning, has been preserved by Klisha Thayer, 
a lineal descendant of Alden, in his work above referred to. 
He gives the following account of it : 

' It is well known that of the first Company, consisting of 
101, about one-half died in six months after landing, in con- 
sequence of the hardships they were called to encounter. 
Mrs. Rose Standish, consort of Capt. Standish, departed this 
life on the 29th of January, 1621. This circumstance is 
mentioned as an introduction to the following anecdote, which 
has been carefully handed down by tradition : 

"In a very short time after the decease of Mrs. Standish, 
the Captain was led to think that if he could obtain Miss 
Priscilla Mollins, a daughter of Mr. William Mollins, the 
breach in his family would be happily repaired. He there- 
fore, according to the custom of those times, sent to ask the 
permission of Mr. Mollius to visit his daughter. John Alden, 
the messenger, went and faithfully communicated the wishes 
of the Captain. The old gentleman did not object, as he 
might have done, on account of the recency of the Captain's 
bereavement. He said it was perfectly agreeable to him, but 
the young lady must be consulted. The damsel was then 
called in, and John Alden arose and in very courteous man- 
ner, delivered his errand. Miss Mollins listened with 
respectful attention, and at last, after a considerable pause, 




JOHN ALDEN 1 HOMESTEAD, DUXBURY, MASS. 



LINE OF COPEEAND 57 

fixed her eyes upon him and said, ' Prythee, John, why do 
you not speak for yourself ?' " The account further states 
that thereupon, in much confusion young Alden retired, to 
extricate himself from his perplexing position, as best he 
could. As Longfellow sings it : 

" Into the open air John Alden perplexed and bewildered, 
Rushed like a man insane, and wandered alone by the seaside." 

Whatever grains of fact the tradition may have had, Long- 
fellow's song has immortalized it. John Alden and Priscilla 
Mollins were married in 162 1 or 2. There seems to have 
been the same neglect, on the part of Alden, as to the pre- 
servation of this record, as others, concerning himself and 
family. 
_|_ Children of John and Priscilla (Mollins) Alden: 

1. Elizabeth 2 , born about 1624; married William Paybody 

of Little Compton, R. I. She died May 31, 1 717. 
The following notice of her death appeared in the 
Boston-News Letter of June 17, 1 7 1 7 :

Paybody, in the 93d, year of her age. She was a 
daughter of John Alden Esq. and Priscilla his wife, 
daughter of Mr. William Mollins. This John Alden 
and Priscilla Mollins were married at Plymouth in 
New England, where their daughter, Elizabeth was

ried Silence Wetherell, and had a daughter, Silence 7 , in our 
Lane line, and who became the wife of William Copeland 5 . 

While there is little, if any, doubt that Silence (Wetherell ) 
Lane 7 was a lineal descendant of William Wetherell', the 
immigrant, of Taunton first, and the first settler of Norton, 
I have not discovered all the links in the chain of evidence ; 
therefore cannot state it as a fact. At present it rests in a 
most probable theory. In the first place Wetherell is not, 
nor has it been, a very common name in New England. 
Early in the history of the colonies, in Mass., there were 
three of the name. Rev. William Wetherell, of Duxbury, 
and later minister of Scituate, Mass , came to America in 
1634. There was, also, a John Wetherell, first at Cam- 
bridge, and later a proprietor of Watertown, Mass. It is 
found that John was in Cambridge in 1635. The third of 
this name was William of Taunton and Norton ; and, inas- 
much as Norton was settled from Taunton and Mansfield 
from Norton largely, it is more than probable, that the Nor- 
ton and Mansfield Wetherells, in generations succeeding that 
of the immigrants, were descended from William', of Taun- 
ton and Norton. So confident am I that this is the case, and 
that the links in the chain I have missed will yet be found 
and fitted in, that I will here preserve something of what I 
have found relating to William Wetherell 1 of Taunton and 
Norton, who, through his three sons, William 2 , John 2 and 



LINE OP COPRLAND 71 

Ephraim 2 , founded a family in America. These three sons, 
together with his daughter, Dorothy (Wetherell 2 ) Wood, are 
mentioned in his will, dated Aug. 15, 169 1, probated the 
same year. He has had a numerous posterity in Norton and 
Mansfield. 

The following is from Rev. George Faber Clark's history 
of Norton, ( 1859,) page 7 : 

"Tradition says that this William Wetherell — whose 
name will ever be a household word to the people of Norton — 
came from England, in the capacity of a cabin-boy, with 
William Dunn, the master of the vessel, and one of the origi- 
nal proprietors of Taunton, who is said to have returned to 
England, leaving his cabin-boy in charge of his proprietary, 
with the understanding, that, if he (Dunn) did not return to 
claim it, the right should escheat to young Wetherell ; and 
such was the result " 

This tradition has the strong confirmation of the Taunton 
records. Just before King Phillip's War, and in 1675, a list 
of the proprietors of Taunton was made; and on this list is 
the name of William Wetherell, who owned "on his own 
right and that which was Mr. Dunn's." 

What year William Wethere"ll' came to America is not 
known. He was made freeman in 1658. It appears of record 
in Taunton that in 1643 he was on the list of those subject to 
military duty. In the division of land in Taunton in 1659, 
he received his ratable proportion. It seems that in 1669 he 
sold his interest in Taunton proper, including " five acres, 
more or less, which were granted to him by the town for a 
home-lotte." On the same day there were laid out and set 
off to him, in four lots about sixty acres, in what became 
Norton. His name appears several times between 1650 and 
1690, on the Grand Inquest. He was Constable in Taunton 
in 1662 and 1676 In 1671 and 1685 he was Representative 
to the General Court. He was Representative to a Special 
Court held in Oct. and Nov., 1676; was a selectman 



72 LINE OF COPELAND 

in 1685. June 2, 1685, he was licensed "to retail eider, 
beeir and strong liquors." In May, 16.S0, he was appointed 
on a Committee " to revise the town orders, records of land," 
etc. He was an " Eldest Sergeant in Captain Garrom's 
Company in the great Narragansett-Swamp fitt," in 1675, in 
South Kingston, R. I. He was wounded in that battle, and 
received a grant of land because of it. In 16X5, he received, 
in consequence of this wound, a grant of ten pounds Sterling ; 
and in i6.s.s, a further grant of five pounds. He held two 
rights, his own and that of Captain William Dunn, in the 
original purchase of Taunton ; and half a right in the North 
purchase ; and one right in the South purchase. He died in 
Norton in 1 691 . 

William Copeland 5 , when about 21 years of age, removed 
from Mansfield, Mass., to that part of Orrington, Maine, 
which was afterwards Brewer, and that part of Brewer later 
incorporated as Holden, and to that particular locality, in 
Holden, which has, since the first settlement there, been 
known as "The Wiswell Neighborhood," so called in honor 
of its first settler, George Wiswell, who came from Norton, 
Mass., and doubtless, was a descendant Noah Wiswell, who 
united with the Church in the latter place, in 1757, and died 
there in 1X13, aged 84 years. 

In the above neighborhood, and on the road leading from 
East Orrington to what is now Holden Centre, William Cope- 
land 5 purchased quite an extensive tract of farming and timber 
land, and thereon commenced to make his homestead. This 
tract of land was, at the time of its purchase, covered with a 
dense forest. Acre after acre was cleared, and a home, a 
farm, a competence and a goodly estate resulted. For many 
years William Copeland 5 served on the board of selectmen of 
of Brewer. He held a commission as a justice of the peace 
and throughout the whole Country Side was known as " Squire 
Copeland." His whole business life was devoted to agricul- 
ture and the local public service. He was 1st Sergeant of 





Silence (Lane 7 ) Copelakd 



LINE OF COPELAND 73 

Captain Solomon Blake's Company, the Brewer Company, 
Major Thomas George's Battalion, of the 4th Mass. Regiment, 
1st Brigade, and was in the Hampden battle, in Sept., 1814. 
On the promotion of Captain Solomon Blake to the Colonelcy, 
Sergeant William Copeland was promoted to the Captaincy, 
and was with his Company at the review of his (the 10th 
Mass ) Division by Gov. John Brooks in 1818. The Division 
was then in command of Major General Jedediah Herrick 
of Hampden, who had succeeded Major General John Blake 
of Brewer. 

William Copeland 5 united with the Congregational Church 
at East Biewer, (later Holden,) June 4, 1832. By his will 
his homestead farm went to his youngest son, Benjamin 
Franklin Copeland 6 . who, in 1854 or 5, sold it to Charles F. 
Hart, a son of George and Catherine (Comins) Hart, and a 
grandson of Captain Jacob and Jerusha (King) Hart, the 
latter the parents of Nancy (Hart) Clark, wife of Nathan 
Clark 7 in our line, of Mendon, Mass., and of Orrington, 
Brewer and Holden, Maine. 

Not only, by the above sale, did the homestead farm, one 
of the best in Holden, of William Copeland 5 , pass from 
ownership by any one of the name, but, in the course of 
events, there is, at this writing, (A. D. 1901) no one living, 
of the many descendants of William Copeland 5 , who bears 
his surname. 

William Copeland 5 died in Brewer (now Holden,) Feb. 10,

Generation 6. Sophronia Copeiand 6 , (William 5 , William 4 ,

that part now Holden, Nov. 23, 1807 ; married, Nov. 10, 1837, 
Charles Blake of Brewer, now Holden, horn March 29, 1794. S(,u 
of General John and Mary (Dupee) Blake. John, the father 
of Charles Blake, was horn in Wrentham, Mass., Aug. 29, 
1753. He was, therefore, in his 22nd year, when the battle of 
Lexington was fought, April 19, 1775. At that time young 
Blake was a Sergeant in Captain Oliver Pond's Company of 
Light Infantry, a Wrentham Company. This company was 
hastily called out and John Blake at once enlisted as a ser- 
geant, for eight months. By repeated reenlistments he served 



LINE OF COPELAND 77 

as a Sergeant and Ensign continuously for 5 yr. 5 mo. 25 
da., having been appointed Ensign by General Washington in 
1776. 

The summer of 1786 John Blake spent surveying the land 
of the then unexplored region, now Holden, Maine. Here 
six miles east of Penobscot River, on the opposite side thereof 
from Bangor, he purchased a lot of land on the southerly 
slope of Potash Hill, erected a log-cabin, and, in 1787 with 
his wife and two children, moved into it. At that time there 
was no other settler nearer him than the river front six miles 
away He gave his new Settlement the name of "New 
Wrentham in the District of Maine." The pioneer, Blake, 
did not remain isolated long. Others, from his native 
Wrentham and towns in its vicinity, soon followed him; and 
he had, for neighbors, John Farrington, Silas Winchester, 
Captain Jacob Hart, Samuel Gilmore, David Maun, Ebenezer 
Fisher, Major Thomas George, and Isaac Clewley, all Revolu- 
tionary Soldiers. 

When the town of Orrington was incorporated, in 1788, it 
included the Blake Settlement; but it was known as " New 
Wrentham," until the incorporation of Holden in 1852. 
Probably but few persons are now living who recall hearing 
the place c died Wrentham. 

John Blake was, for thirty years, agent of the Penobscot 
Tribe of Indians, under the government of the Common- 
wealth of Mass. In 1799 he was appointed, by President 
Adams, Captain, 15th Infantry, U. S. Army. He held mili- 
tary commissions from all the Governors of Mass. of his time, 
who promoted him successively, from the rank of Lieutenant 
in 1786, to Major General in 1816. He was often the Agent 
or Representative of the District of Maine, to the General 
Court of Mass. 

On Sept. 3, 1814, during the war of 1812, the Hampden 
Battle, so called, was fought, or took place Brig. Gen'l 
John Blake was in command of the 1st Brigade, roth Division 



78 LINE OF COPELAND 

of the Mass. Militia, which were the only American land 
forces in the vicinity of the hostilities. Hampden and Ban- 
gor were captured by the British, as other towns farther 
down the Penobscot had been. While this affair was, at the 
time, ami has been since, the subject of some criticism, it 
would seem the worst that can fairly be said about it is, 
that, at the time, there appeared to be, perhaps, two sides to 
the question. To such an extent did this appearance obtain 
that Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Grant of Hampden and 
Major Joshua Chamberlain of Brewer felt called upon to 
make a complaint against General Blake, which resulted in 
a Court of Inquiry. This Court, Major General Henry 
Sewall of Augusta, Maine, President, closed its hearing Jan. 
8, [816, and found, " That the charges do not appear to be 
so far supported as to render a reference of them to a Court 
Martial expedient or proper " Soon after, Mass. promoted 
Blake, and he received the commission of a Major General. 
" The war of '12 " was one of the United vStates with Eng- 
land and not one of Mass., to any greater extent than that 
Mass. was one of the United States, It was, of course, no 
more a war of the Province or District of Maine, than it was 
ot Mass. During that war the District of Maine was, perhaps, 
more exposed than any other territory belonging to the United 
States; yet, it does not appear that the General Government 
at Washington or the Mass. State Government at Boston 
took measures, other than to leave local militia organiza- 
tions pretty much to themselves, and to do little, much or no 
fighting, by way of protecting the North Eastern frontier. 
It does not appear that General Blake received any orders 
from any superior. Nor does it appear that Captain Charles 
Maurice, Commander of the United States Corvette, Adams, 
then at Hampden, had orders. But, on the contrary, he 
seems to have acted at discretion. It does appear that Blake 
and Maurice failed to agree upon a plan of battle. Neither 
had jurisdiction over, or to order, the other. Blake was in, 



LINE OF COPELAND 79 

and in the service of Mass.; Maurice was in the service of 
the United States, but in Mass. The result of the day at 
Hampden was but the logic of the 'masterly inactivity," 
the mildest term, perhaps, applied by the war party of that 
time, to the position of the other party, which was not 
heartily in accord with the war, which a majority in New 
England were not, as Mass. also was not. 

Whether more vigorous war measures would have been 
best, upon the whole, is a question ; but it is evident enough 
that both Blake and Maurice wanted to fight the English at 
Hampden. The council called by Blake, at which Maurice 
was present, was divided. Some of Blake's officers and citi- 
zen soldiers were opposed to a defensive fight ; others were 
in favor. But Blake and Maurice did not agiee upon a plan 
of defense, and had not when the enemy came upon them. 
No doubt this failure of the two independent commanders, 
one of the army, one of the navy, to agree, had a more or 
less demoralizing effect upon the militia of General Blake's 
Brigade. 

Captain Maurice had taken the guns out of the Adams 
and planted two batteries, one near the river, the other a 
short distance back, upon the brow of a hill. This hill bat- 
tery could rake the river, and, if necessary, do so over the 
heads of the shore battery, without harm to men or guns. 
He had not men enough to work his guns and defend against 
an attack upon his right flank, had the enemy landed below 
and marched against him. There were about 3000 in the 
British troop. To engage this English force fell to the lot'of 
General Blake and his Brigade. The line of battle was 
formed ; and, after a few rounds had been exchanged, it was 
perceived that the Centre of Blake's line was giving way, 
and the men had begun to retreat without ordeis. This 
break was a fatal one. It became general, and all effort of 
the officers to hold or rally tlie men was unavailing, and the 
retreat became a rout. General Blake was left upon the field 



SO LINE OF COPKLAND 

without a command. He was seen later in the day, wending 

his way, afoot and alone, toward Bangor, apparently in as 
dazed a state as Napoleon is said to have wandered, afoot 
and leading his horse by the bridle, after Waterloo. Captain 
Maurice seeing his batteries unsupported and the enemy 
coming upon him in great numbers, spiked his guns and 
abandoned them and the field. 

" It was the English, Gaspai cried, 

Who put t he I' i ench t" i out , 
But \\ h;it they killed ea( li othei t < > i . 

I could not well make out." 

In vain, we look into the Treaty of 1814, for the causes of 
the war. 

In the American Blake line, Charles, whose second wife 
was Sophronia Copeland 6 , was oi the 6th generation. The line 
back is as follows: His father, General John Blake 5 , John 4 , 
of Boston and Wreiithain, Mass.; Jonathan 3 , of Boston, who 
was a Major, a Lawyer and a Quaker; Edward 2 , bom in 
England, and settled in Dorchester, Mass ; and William', 
who was baptized in Pitminster Parish, near Taunton, in 
Somersetshire, England, June 5, 1594. William Blake' with 
his wife, who was Mrs. Agnes Bent, and five children, came 
to America with the 1030 Winthrop party. 

Their children were: William 2 , born Sept. 6, 1620; 
James-, born April 25, 1623; Edward 2 , born in 1625; John- 1 , 
born in 1627; and Ann 2 , born in 1619. They came to 
America with the 1630 Winthrop party. They came in 
the Ship " Mary and John," and landed at Nantasket, Mass., 
now Hull, May 30, of that vear. The family settled in 
Dorchester, in that part now Milton.

had a son Robert, who dropped the " de " and the "land" 
from his name, and became Robert Blake. He and his 
descendants have since borne the name of Blake. The find- 
ings of Charles Maurice Blake 7 , based on his tracings back 
in Kngland, from William Blake 1 , the American immigrant, 
give the following : 

William Blake 1 , ^England* father of William 1 , in America, was 
baptized May 12, 1566, at Pitminster and was buried there, 
June 26, 1627 or 8. 

John Blake 2 , in England, father of William 1 , in England, was 

born in 1521 ; he succeeded to the Manor of Plainfield, and 
to the patronage of Asholt Church, and bequeathed the 
advowson of the church of Overstoey to his son Richard. 
This John Blake 2 , in England, was buried under the latter 
church, Dec. 10, 1576. He had a brother Humphrey, named 
for his father, who was the father of Robert Blake, the 
famous English Admiral of Cromwell's time. 

Humphrey Blake*, in England, f at her of John 2 , in England, 
removed, in the early part of the 16th century, into Somer- 
setshire, England, and became lord of the Manor of Plain- 
field, situate on the easterly side of the Quantock Hills. 

William Blake*, in England, f at her of Humphrey*, in England, 
resided in Old Hall, in the parish of Andover ; he died in 
1547, as his will was both dated and proved that year.

of John Wallop, Esq., were buried under, and had a memo-

of John Wilkins 8 and Catherine Boardman (Remick 6 ) Rice, 
of Hampden, Maine, born in Hampden, Oct. 19, 1839. 



LINE OF RICE 



-|- In the Rice line, Eliza Catherine (Rice) Clark is of the 

9th generation in America, counting Deacon Edmund Rice 
and his wife, Tamazine, the immigrants, as the 1st. 

The name, Rice, is said to he of Welsh origin ; and in 
Wales was written and spoken with the prefix, "Ap," as, 
" Ap Rice." In being anglicized the prefix has been 
dropped. 

Nothing, it is believed, has been learned, on this side of 
-\- the water, concerning Edmund Rice', who seated this family 
in America, prior to 1627. The records of Barkhamstead 
parish, Hertfordshire, England, show the following: 

Baptized, 1627, March 9, Lydia, daughter of Edmund 
Rice. 

Baptized, 1629, Feb. 28, Mathew, son of Edmund Rice. 

Baptized, 1632, Nov. 1, Daniel, son of Edmund Rice. 

Buried, 1632, Nov. 10, Daniel, son of Edmund Rice. 

Baptized, 1634, Nov. 12, Samuel, son of Edmund Rice. 

Baptized, 1637, March 13, Joseph, son of Edmund Rice. 

The three eldest children of Edmund Rice', namely, Henry, 
Edward and Thomas, who came with the family to America, 
do not appear upon the Barkhamstead records, which points 
to the conclusion that the Rice residence was elsewhere prior 
to 1627. There does not seem to have been found the time 
of his leaving England, the ship he came in, when nor 
where he landed in the New World. He settled, first, in 
Sudbury, Mass., in 1638 or 9; second, in Marlborough, Mass. 
The date of his birth we have not.

A deposition given by him, April 3, 1656, on file at Cam- 
bridge, Mass., states his age then "about 62 years," hence 
he was born about 1594. His wife, Tamazine, died at Sud- 
bury, June 13, 1654. This is the only mention or record 
found of her in America. 

In 1656, Edmund Rice 1 with his wife, children and herds, 
with but few neighbors — at that time Sudbury included 
Wayland, and contained but 75 families — had lived in Sud- 
bury 18 or 19 years, and, as the record says, were becoming 
"straightened for land." This year he, with 12 others of 
Sudbury, besought the General Court for a new plantation, 
in the words following : 

" Whereas your petitioners have lived divers years in Sud- 
bury, and God hath been pleased to increase our children, 
which are now divers of them, grown to men's estate, and 
we, many of us grown into years, so that we should be glad 
to see them settled before the Lord takes us away from hence ; 
as also God having given us some considerable quantity of 
cattle, so that we are so straightened, that we cannot so 
comfortably subsist as could be desired ; and some of us hav- 
ing taken some pains to view the country, we have found a 
place, which lieth westward about eight miles from Sudbury, 
which we conceive might be comfortable for our subsistence," 
&c. 

The prayer of the petitioners was granted and a plantation 
was " laid " to them in 1660, which was called Marlborough. 

It seems it took " some " of them " some pains," and how 
many years we are not informed, to explore the country 
eight miles to the westward of the settlement of Sudbury. 
This was not quite up to the John C. Fremont expedition 
West, as to time made or distance covered ; nor yet up to the 
speed of Ben Holliday in his pony and stage scheme, over- 
land from the East to California ; but was more like the 
advancement made by Moses and the children of Israel, in 
crossing the desert lying between Egypt and the "Promised

Land." Doubtless the children of Israel advanced as fast as 
the "Blazing Star" permitted, as it may be supposed the 
children of England, in America, found their way Westward, 
from the Atlantic, as speedily as the explorers gave them 
blazed tree lines to go upon. 

On the organization of Marlborough, Deacon Edmund 
Rice' settled there. Previous to his removal he was, in 1644 
and subsequent years, on the board of selectmen of Sudbury. 
He was chosen deacon of the church in the latter town in 
1648 He executed several commissions from the General 
Court, and was a leading spirit in the settlement of Sudbury 
and Marlborough. He married, second, Mercy, widow of 
Thomas Brigham, of Cambridge, March 1, 1655. He died 
at Marlborough, May 3, 1663, and was buried at Sudbury.

settlers of Sudbury and Marlborough. 

Hudson, in his history of Sudbury, (1889,) gives a short 
biographical sketch of all the early settlers of that town, and 
those who were foremost in the settlement of the belt of towns 
about Sudbury. Thomas and Peter King are among the 
prominent ones treated ; in fact, none others by the name of 
King are mentioned by Mr. Hudson, or are found in the 
Sudbury records of that early time. 

Hon. Marquis F. King of Portland, Maine, in his address 
at Taunton, Mass., July 20, 1899, before the King Family 
Association, says : 

"Peter King was a petitioner of Sudbury, Mass., in 1659, 
probably a son of Thomas, of same town. Peter King of 
Shaster, Dorset County, England, in his will, made in 1658, 
names his sons, Joseph and Peter, and also, his brother

Edmund Rice 3 , had a cousin Thomas Rice 3 . Both families 
resided in Westboro, in 1704. On the 8th day of August 
of that year, as related by Whitney, and further preserved 
by Ward in his " Rice Family," the male members of both 
families were spreading flax near the woods, when, suddenly, 
a number of Indians rushed from their concealment and 
captured five of the Rice children ; three, the children of 
Edmund 3 , as related above, namely, Silas 4 , Timothy 4 and 
Nahor 4 , and two, Ashur 4 and Adonijah 4 , sons of Thomas 
Rice 3 . Nahor was the youngest of the captured boys, being 
but five years of age, presumably, his captors thought, so 
young as to be too much trouble in their flight to Canada. 
The Indians at once killed Nahor, by a blow of the toma- 
hawk upon the head. The other four boys were carried 
away to Canada. Ashur, some years after, was ransomed 
by his father, and returned to, settled in and united with the 
church at Westboro. His brother, Adonijah, remained with 
the Indians, and his after history is quite uncertain. 

Dr. Stephen W. Williams, in his history of the Williams 
family, (1847,) says, "Feb. 29, 1704, Deerfield, Mass., was 
attacked and destroyed by the French and Indians — many 
killed, and 112 taken captive and marched for Canada." 

By some it was thought that Adonijah Rice married some 
one of these captives, and that it was his daughter Marian 
De Rice, who married Thomas, the only child of Francis 



I iS LINE OF RICE 

Here Rice and Catherine De Rogers. John De Rogers was 
an Indian, and married Eunice Williams, one of the captives 
taken from Deerfield, Mass., in 1704. Eunice was daughter 
of Rev. John and Eunice (Mather) Williams. Mrs. Wil- 
liams was tomahawked to death on the march to Canada. 
Eunice, her daughter, survived ; was eight years old at her 
capture, and died in Canada in 1786, aged 90 years. 

Silas and Timothy Rice were taken to Canada, where they 
had Indian wives and children by them. Timothy became 
the third of six chiefs of the Cognawaga tribe. In that 
capacity he addressed a speech to Colonel Burgoyne, employed 
in an expedition against Canada in the French and Indian 
war of 1755. Colonel Burgoyne was afterwards the General 
Burgoyne who surrendered himself and his army to General 
Gates at Saratoga, during the American Revolution. 

Timothy Rice visited Westboro, in September 1740, with 
an interpreter — he having lost his mother tongue — and 
viewed the place where he had lived when a child, and where 
he was captured in 1704. He had a clear recollection of 
several persons then living and of all the circumstances of 
his capture. Nothing, however, could induce him to remain 
at Westboro. He returned to Canada where he and his 
brother Silas were living in 1790. 

+ Ruth (Parker) Rice, wife of Edmund 3 , died at some time 

between 17 16 and 1720. For her youngest child, Anna 4 , 
was born, as stated above, Feb. 20, 1716; and Edmund 3 
married, second, June 23, 1720, Hannah Brown of Sudbury. 
There were no children by this second marriage. He died 
at Westboro in 1726, aged 63 years. His will, dated Aug. 
10, 1726, proved Sept. 12, 1726, gave to wife Hannah; to 

+ son Seth 4 , " the eldest now with me," the north part of the 
farm ; to son Eleazer 4 , the south part. The daughters Dinah 
(Rice 4 ) Brigham, Huldah (Rice 4 ) Wheelock, Thankful Rice 4 , 
Ruth Rice 4 and Anna Rice 4 were also mentioned. It seems

married, March 31, 1861, at Houlton, Maine, Joanna 
Maria Thomas, born May 12, 1842, in Bangor, Maine. 
She was the daughter of David, born in Middle- 
borough, Mass., April 9, 1807, and Mary Wood 
(Thompson) Thomas, who were married, Oct. 25, 
1832, at Middleborough*, where Mary Wood Thomp- 
son was born March 16, 18 12. 

Joanna Maria (Thomas) Rice is descended from 
Peter Brown', John Howland', and John Tillie 1 , all of 
whom came to Plymouth, Mass., in the Mayflower on 
the voyage of 1 620, and were signers of the l ' Compact ' ' 
before the landing. Her first line from and including 
Peter Brown', runs thus: 

Peter Brown', married at Plymouth, Mass., in 1624, 
widow Martha Ford (or Ward.) Tbeir daughter, 
Mary Brown 2 , born 1627, married, in 1647, Ephraim 
Tinkham', born in Ashburton, near Plymouth, 
England, in 1 6 16. He came to New Plymouth, Mass., 
as the ward of Timothy Hatchelv, in 1630. His son, 
Ebenezer Tinkham', ""Brown, was born in 1651 ; and 
married Elizabeth Liscom. Their son Jeremiah Tink- 
ham 4 , inBrown . was born in 1681. Ebenezer Tinkham 5 , 
in Brown, w'as born in i 7 1 4. H i s wife was Hannah Shaw. 
Rebecca Tinkham'', '" 1!,,nvn - was born in 1739 ; she mar- 
ried, in 1765, David Thomas of Middleboro, Mass., 
son of Isreal and Phebe ( Lyon ) Thomas, of the latter 
town. Ayel Thomas 7 , '" Brown < was born in Middleboro 
in 1768. His wife was Phebe, daughter of George 
Ellis of Plymouth, Mass. David Thomas", in Brow "' 
was born at Middleboro, April 9, 1807. He died at 
Waltham, Mass., March 15, 1901, and was buried at

Bangor, Maine. He married, Oct. 25, 1832, at 
Middleboro, Mary Wood, daughter of Nathaniel and 
Joanna (Tinkham) Thompson of Middleboro. Their 
daughter was Joanna Maria Thomas?, in Brown . who 
became the wife of John Melvin Rice 9 , in Rice - 

Her second line also starts with Peter Brown as gen- 
eration 1, and with Mary, his daughter, who became 
the wife of Ephraim Tinkham 1 , as generation 2. But 
here the second line divides from the first, and, in the 
second, Ephraim Tinkham, Jr., becomes generation 3, 
as his brother, Ebenezer is generation 3 in the first 
line. Ephraim Tinkham, Jr., who is generation 3 in 
Mrs. Rice's second line, was born at Plymouth, Mass., 
Aug. 5, 1649, and married, in 1678, Hester, born at 
Plymouth in 1649, daughter of William (who was 
baptized at Austerfhendon, England, 1588, and came 
to America in the "Fortune" in 1621,) and Priscilla 
(Carpenter) Wright. Priscilla was daughter of Alex- 
ander Carpenter. William was a brother of Richard 
Wright who married, Esther Cooke, daughter of the 
Mayflower Pilgrim, Francis Cooke. John Tinkham, 
Sr. 4 , is generation 4 in Mrs. Rice's second line. He 
was born in Middleboro, Mass., Aug. 25, 1680. He 
was a cousin of Jeremiah Tinkham who was generation 
4 in Mrs. Rice's first line. He married Hannah How- 
land, daughter of Isaac and Elizabeth (Vaughn) How- 
land, and granddaughter of John, the Mayflower Pil- 
grim, and Elizabeth (Tillie) Howland. Elizabeth was 
daughter of John Tillie and came with her parents in 
the Mayflower on the voyage of 1620. Thus by the mar- 
riage of John Tinkham, Sr., of generation 4 in Mrs. 
Rice's second line, with Hannah, daughter of Isaac and 
granddaughter of John Howland, the lines of the three 
1620 Pilgrims, Tillie, Brown and Howland ran into 
one and the same line. From thence down in the 



138 LINE OF RICE 

branch being here treated, — Generation 5 is John 
Tinkhara, Jr., a Revolutionary soldier, born in 
Middleboro, May 8, 1719. He married, Jan. 27, 1742 
or 3, Jerusha, daughter of John Vaughn, grand- 
daughter of Joseph Vaughn, and great grand- 
daughter of George Vaughn, the immigrant. This 
last marriage also allies the paternal with the maternal 
lines of Joanna Maria (Thomas) Rice, running back 
from here to the 1620 immigration. John Tinkham, 
who to distinguish him from his grandfather and father 
was called "3rd," was a lieutenant in the American 
Revolution, was born April 6, 1754, at Middleboro, and 
is generation 6 in Mrs. Rice's second line. He mar- 
ried Mary, daughter of Deacon Kphraim Wood. 
Their daughter was Joanna Tinkham who was genera- 
tion 7 in Mrs. Rice's second line. She was born June 
24, 17S5. She married, Sept. 12, 1805, Nathaniel 
Thompson, son of Nathaniel and Phebe (Godfrey) 
Thompson of Middleboro. Generation 8 in this 
second line of Mrs. Rice is their daughter, Mary 
Wood Thompson, born March 16, 181 2. She mar- 
ried Oct. 16, 1832, at Middleboro, David Thomas' 
as stated in tracing Mrs. Rice's first line; and they 
were the parents of Joanna Maria (Thomas) Rice, 
wife of John Melvin Rice. 

Joanna Maria (Thomas) Rice was, upon her 
maternal side, 'descended from John Tillie, John How- 
land and Peter Brown of the New Plymouth " adven- 
ture," as before intimated. Here, upon her maternal 
side, the Tillie and Howland lines came together in 
the marriage, in 1623, of John Howland with Eliza- 
beth, John Tillie's daughter. 

Counting, then, John and Elizabeth (Tillie) How- 
land as generation 1, we have, Isaac and Elizabeth 



LINE OF RICE 139 

(Vaughn) Howland as generation 2. Hannah How- 
land, daughter of Isaac, we have as generation 3. 
She married John Tinkham, St.*, in Brown - 3** Tinkham. 
This John Tinkham, Sr. 4 , and3, was son of Ephraim, 
the immigrant, and Mary (Brown) Tinkham; and 
Mary Brown was daughter of Peter (Brown) of the 
1620 Mayflower Party. So that, in the marriage of 
John Tinkham, Sr., 4 « Brown, 3 in Tinkham, w j th Hannah 

Howland of generation 3 in the line now being treated, 
the Peter Brown line became allied with that of How- 
land, and that of Tillie with Howland and Brown. 
John Tinkham, Jr., is generation 4 in the line now 
being here given. As stated, in tracing the paternal 
line, John Tinkham, Jr. 5, there, 4 here, married, Jan. 27, 
1742 or 3, Jerusha Vaughn. Generation 5 in the line 
here given is John Tinkham, Esq., called 3rd, also 
Lieutenant. He was born at Middleboro in 1754; 
married, in 1778, Mary, daughter of Deacon Ephraim 
and Mary (Deach) Wood. Generation 6 is Joanna 
Tinkham, born June 24, 1785, married, Sept. 12, 1805, 
Nathaniel Thompson of Middleboro. As generation 
7 we have Mary Wood Thompson who married David 
Thomas, (born 1807.) And as generation 8, in this 
line, we have Joanna Maria Thomas who became the 
wife of John Melvin Rice 8 . 

John Melvin and Joanna Maria (Thomas) Rice had 
one child, Addie 10 , in Rice - born Feb. 10, 1862 ; married, 
July 18, 1884, Jefferson Bradbury of Houlton, Maine; 
had one child, Melvin Rice Bradbury 11 , in Rice ' born in 
Houlton, Maine, Dec. 12, 1890. 

John Melvin Rice 9 has been in the furniture business 
in Hampden and Houlton, Maine. Is now President 
and Treasurer of the Buttrick Dumber Co. at Waltham, 
Mass. He was a member of Company E, 6th Maine

4. Benjamin Crosby 9 , born in Hampden, Aug. 9, 1843 ; 

died Oct. 31, 1844. 

5. Lyman Frisbie', born in Hampden, June 18, 1S45. On 

July 17, 1862, when 17 years of age, he enlisted, at 
Bangor, Maine, in the Union Army for the suppression 
of the Southern Rebellion, and on the 18th of Sept. 
of the same year, was mustered into the United States 
military service, and was assigned to Co. F, 6th 
Infantry Regiment, Maine Volunteers, then in the field. 
He was in all the battles and skirmishes of that regi- 
ment from the time of his muster-in, until the time of 
the service of the regiment expired in 1S64, when he 
was assigned to Co. C, 1st Veteran Infantry. He was 
at, and was wounded in, the battle of Rappahannock 
Station, Nov. 7, [863. At this battle his regiment was 
badly cut up, coming out with hardly company organ- 
izations. He was not so severely wounded as to com- 
pel him to leave the field, and, at this battle, he cap- 
tured, with his own hands, a rebel stand of colors. 
While bearing this trophy to a place of safety and 
beyond a peradventure of recapture, he was asked, by 
a member of his regiment, to let him take it. Young 
Rice, as he afterward said, not, in the excitement of 
the occasion, comprehending the value, from the 
standpoint of a soldier, of his trophy, and, not sus- 
pecting that any one would attempt to appropriate his 
capture and its fruits, handed it over. The recipient 
immediately carried the colors to the General com- 
manding, as a trophy of his own taking. The 
General, in good faith, and in the belief that he who 
brought the colors to him was, in fact, their captor, 
took them to Washington and had the attention of 
Congress, then in session, brought to the matter.

LINE OF RICE 141 

Congress, also, in good faith, at once voted a gold 
medal for distinguished bravery, not to Rice who had, 
but to another, who had not, captured the stand of 
confederate colors ; unless the possession thereof, by 
that other, in the manner above stated can be called a 
capture. After the confusion resulting from the battle 
of Rappahannock Station had subsided and many of 
the surviving sick and wounded had returned from 
hospitals, there being ample proof that young Rice 
had captured the stand of colors in question, an 
attempt was urged to right the wrong and correct the 
error. But, inasmuch as some time had elapsed, and 
Congress had acted and a record had been made up, 
the argument used, poor as it was, was, that it was 
not advisable to then correct the error ; as, to do so, 
would involve explanations discreditable to the regi- 
ment. The object here is not to reflect upon any one 
or any organization ; but it is to preserve the above 
facts as a simple act of justice to the memory of 
Lyman Frisbie Rice, who gave his young life to his 
country, in the great conflict of 1861-5, for the preser- 
vation of the American Union. He died of small pox 
at Rocky Point Hospital, Md., in 1864.

Appendix 



Here follow the straight, single, genealogical lines which 
the foregoing work quite broadly treats and unbrokenly 
traces, from and including the immigrant ancestors, who 
were of the earliest New England and some other settle- 
ments in America, down to and including some one or more, 
of their respective descendants of the youngest generations 
now living. In this work, the hunt for trails and data has 
been ancestorial ; the placings here are in genealogical order. 
It is thought that this arrangement of family lines may serve 
as a convenient and concise review for those who may have 
followed the detailed tracing, and as something that can be 
quickly grasped by those who may have neither the time nor 
the taste to follow them. In this appendix, the American 
generations are indicated by superior figures or numerals 
placed above and at the right of names, as in the more 
extended part of the work. 



LINE OF CLARK (JOSEPH) 



Joseph Clark\ the immigrant, wife, Alice Pepper; Joseph 2 ; 
Joseph 3 ; Joseph 4 ; Joseph 5 ; Ichabod 6 ; Nathan 7 ; Harvey 
Dexter s ; William Copeland'; Walter 10 , J Fred 10 , and Hugo 10 ; 
Ethel", Walter, Jr. 11 , Bertha May", Lewis White", and 
William Copeland", children of Walter'" ; and Robert Pink- 
ham", Helen", and Lawrence Copeland", children of J 
Fred 10 . 

Note. In the same way as above, any of the many gene- 
alogical lines, starting with Joseph Clark 1 , or with any of his 
descendants, may be run to the current time. For example, 
start at Nathan Clark 7 , in the above line, and make the 8th 
generation his daughter, Eliza Ann, instead of his son, 
Harvey Dexter, and we have — Eliza Ann (Clark) Pritchard s ; 
William Henry Pritchard'^ ; Jennie (Pritchard) Hathorne 10 , 
and Roland Edgar Hathorne", inCIark - 

In both the above lines the iith generation is reached ; to 
and including the 7th, both ar,e identical ; from the 7th gen- 
eration each is a branch of a branch of the trunk line. 
Eight at least, of the nine children of Joseph Clark' lived to 
enter the marriage state and to have children. There, then, 
were 8 lines of descent, each, at Joseph 1 , dividing from, yet 
related to the other. 

In this, or in any other family line run in this work, any 
one in any of them, may, by tracing back, make the trunk 
line connection, and then easily arrange a straight line from 
his immigrant ancestor to himself.
