The printed record of " The Ancestry of Jane Maria Green- 
leaf " is of interest to a large circle of her kindred. It presents in a 
convenient form the Greenleaf line of descent and includes many 
facts long since furnished by the author to James Edward Green- 
leaf, the compiler of the " Greenleaf Genealogy," as noted in that 
volume ; but much more material, which has been gathered in years 
of research, concerning one branch of that family. Other family 
names also appear, some of them for the first time, as far as known, 
in genealogical work, thus giving to many desired information con- 
cerning their ancestry. This is especially true of the Toocker fam- 
ily, and such data as have been obtained may at least furnish a 
basis for further investigation. It is hoped also that this publica- 
tion will be the means of bringing to light some lines of ancestry 
that have hitherto eluded the author's search. 

The plan adopted will be readily understood. It is to trace first 
the ancestry of Dr. Charles Greenleaf, the father of Jane Maria 
Greenleaf, and second that of her mother, Electa Toocker. Each 
line is treated by gathering the material under generations, which 
are followed back as far as known, to the emigrant ancestor in 
New England, and, in some cases, to the English ancestry. In 
each generation the family history of such persons as have a place 
in it by marriage is given. Particular attention has also been paid 
to recording all available data concerning the children of families 
for the benefit of their descendants. All names of persons that 
appear in this volume will be found in the " Index of Names," 


such as are subjects of sketches being indicated by the dates follow- 
ing. Two or more persons of the same name are distinguished 
also by dates following or by their appended descent.

January 7, 1906. 




From a dagv rreotyjx madi Strpfe/nb r -"•. X8.%. 


JANE MARIA GREENLEAF was the daughter of Charles 
Greenleaf and Electa Toooker of Hartford, Conn., and was born 
in that town August 9, 1835, being the youngest of a family of 
twelve children. She was married January 7, 1853, in the North 
Congregational Church, Hartford, by Rev. Horace Bushnell, D.D., 
the pastor, to William Francis Joseph Boardman. The death of 
Mrs. Boardman occurred in her home No. 74 Farmington avenue. 
Hartford, August 20, 1899. Thus began and ended the earthly life 
of a woman as noble, unselfish, and lovely in her character as she 
was beautiful in the sphere of her ministry. 

The early life of Mrs. Boardman was spent in the midst of a 
large and interesting family circle. She was naturally a favorite, 
being the youngest, but her sympathetic nature led to the strength- 
ening of the bonds between her and the others of the circle as the 
years passed, so that she was looked to for counsel, assistance, and 
comfort. This relationship became an important factor in her 

The home in which Mrs. Boardman was born was located on 
the south side of Asylum street, a few rods east of Ford street. 
The house is still standing, though it has been somewhat altered. 
In 1836 she removed with her father to No. 10 Windsor street, 
where she lived until after his death in 1843. The family removed 
a few years afterwards to No. 294 Main street, and from there 
to No. 14 Welles avenue, where she resided with her mother and 
brother, Dr. James M. Greenleaf, until her marriage in 1852. She 
had early attended the schools kept by the Misses Stockbridge on 
Talcott street, and Miss Kelsey on Trumbull street, and after- 
wards the Center school on Market street; and to this education 
she added much by her intelligent interest in affairs and lifelong 
habits of reading. 

Mrs. Boardman shared the fortunes of her husband throughout 
the busiest years of his life, being a loyal companion, a faithful 


wife, and a devoted mother. In such a sphere there are no achieve- 
ments that can be published to the outside world. Her days ran 
on as noiselessly as the meadow brook in the home she loved so 
much, established with devotion in her youth, maintained with 
wisdom and affection in her maturer years, and ever made by her 
presence a good place in which to live, or, as one of her friends said, 
" a place of rest and peace and harmony." There she gathered 
about herself many loyal friends who knew her gracious hospitality, 
happy and cheerful ways, and kindly charity. To such she was 
wont to say she never had one regret to mar the pleasure of her 
home life. 

Among the personal characteristics of Mrs. Boardman her love 
for nature was prominent. She had a large capacity for the en- 
joyment of charming scenery. A striking sunset frequently called 
forth her enthusiastic admiration. In the beauties of the wood- 
land, fields, and mountains she delighted, and she was passionately 
fond of flowers, which she always had near her when it was con- 

The charities of Mrs. Boardman were abundant but unpreten- 
tious, and performed in secret as was her nature. This was so 
characteristic of her that at the time of her funeral it was occasion 
for remark. In this connection the following tribute to her ap- 
peared in the public press : — " There are many worthy and needy 
people in this city who will miss the charitable ministrations of 
this good woman, who is now laid at rest. With no desire for pub- 
licity and without ostentation, she has relieved many in distress 
and has made glad hearts where there was sorrow. One of her last 
acts, so characteristic of her disposition, was to send a generous 
contribution to the Courant fresh air fund. As she lay on her 
sick bed waiting for the end, which she knew could not be far off, 
she said to her husband, " Take this to the Courant office for the 
children. If I cannot enjoy the pleasures of life any longer I 
ought to do what I can for the enjoyment of others ! " [Hartford 
Courant, Aug. 23, 1899. ] One who had known her intimately 
from childhood wrote of her in these words : " Mrs. Boardman 
was a true wife and mother. She was kind, sympathetic, and 


charitable to all. To the sick she was a ministering angel. No one 
could have been more loyal to friends. Many will miss her boun- 
ties, which were in the majority of eases extended without the 
knowledge of the recipient so far as the giver was concerned. Her 
right hand knew not what her left hand did. Her husband, who 
furnished her with ample means for her charitable work, knew 
not whore it was bestowed. Absolute confidence was placed in her 
judgment. The sick and unfortunate always found a warm spot 
in her heart. She thought of the value of money only so far as 
she could do good with it." [Hartford Times, Aug. 21, 1899.] 
Such a tribute was paid to her by many, and it can best testify to 
the truth of a friend's remark that she was a " noble woman." 

For a number of years previous to her death Mrs. Boardman 
was in poor health, but " she bore the pains of her affliction with 
patience," never even regretting the kindly ministration to one of 
her family circle, in the performance of which, in a distant town 
and strange house, her malady had been caused by an accidental 
fall. Thus after years of suffering she passed to her reward on the 
20th of August, 1899. at the age of sixty-four. " The world was 
better for her having lived." 

The funeral of Mrs. Boardman was held at her home. No. 74 
Farmington avenue, at 2.30 P.M., August 22d, the services being 
conducted by the Rev. E. S. Ferry, pastor of the South Park 
Methodist Church, and the Eev. George L. Coburn, pastor of the 
Wethersfield Methodist Episcopal Church. After the service the 
interment took place in the family lot at Cedar Hill Cemetery. 
She had lived a life of which it could be truly said, " Of her more 
is written in praise on high than can be written by human hand." 


Jane Maria Greenleaf was married January 7, 1852, was born in 
Wethersfield, Conn., December 12, 1828, being th^ son of William 
Boardman and Mary Francis.; His father then lived in the an- 
cestral home of the family, located on Broad street, in that town, 
and here he was brought up in the midst of the best educational, 
moral, and religious influences. He received his education in the 
town schools, graduating from the Academy in the spring of 1846. 
His thoughts were then turned toward a business life, and he 
entered the coffee and spice manufactory of his father in Wethers- 
field. After four years of valuable training he was admitted to 
partnership, the business being removed early in 1850 to Hartford, 
where the son then took up his residence. 

The firm name, assumed in 1850, was William Boardman & 
Son, and the business was located at No. 12 Central Bow; but 
in 1853, more room being required, it was removed to what is now 
No. 241 State street, and Mr. Boardman's younger brother, 
Thomas Jefferson Boardman, was admitted to the firm, the name 
being changed to William Boardman & Sons. Two floors in an ad- 
joining building were rented in 1858 to provide for the increase of 
business, and in 1867 it was removed to No. 205 State street, the 
former quarters being retained for manufacturing and storage 
purposes. Finally, in 1871, still larger accommodations being 
needed, the firm erected for its use the Boardman building, Nos. 
298-306 Asylum street. Here Mr. Boardman continued his busi- 
ness career, until, after the death of his father, he concluded to 
retire on account of ill health, and sold his interest to his brother 
and the latter's son, severing his connection with a business to 
which he had devoted his best ability for forty-two years, on the 
9th of July, 1888. 

During these years a small enterprise had been developed into 
a large manufacturing establishment, the product of which had be-

come widely known throughout the country. The excessive care 
and labor required had impaired Mr. Boardman's health. He 
sought rest in foreign travel, but finally thought it best to yield 
his burden of business to others. In addition to his constant ac- 
tivity and industry in the firm, he had other enterprises that de- 
manded his thought. In 1871, he superintended the erection of 
the Boardman building; in 1876, that of the Agard building, Nos. 
285-293 Asylum street; and in 1879, that of the Lawrence build- 
ing, Nos. 87-94 State street. He was chosen a director of the 
State Bank in 1861, serving as such during the Civil War. In 
1863, he was elected a member of the Court of Common Council 
from the Third Ward, and was a member of the Committee on 
Highways and chairman of the Committee on the Horse Railroad, 
then in process of construction. Many other concerns and enter- 
prises in which he was interested financially claimed his attention, 
especially his transactions in real estate. He served on commissions, 
settled estates, and did other services. Although he has had a life- 
long affiliation with those who are commonly known as "gold demo- 
crats," he has never cared for political office. 

It was the excessive care of Mr. Boardman's business life that 
first turned his attention to family history for diversion. In 1882 
he began to gather information concerning the Boardman family. 
After much labor and expense, with painstaking investigation at 
home and abroad, the Boardman Genealogy, 1525-1895, was pub- 
lished at the latter date. Mr. Boardman assumed the entire expense 
of this work and publication. Subsequently, he published the 
Francis-Goodrich-Boardman Genealogy in his own line of ancestry, 
a Memorial of Mary Francis and William Boardman, and a com- 
plete record of the Wethers field Inscriptions in the Five Burial 
Places of that Ancient Town. He also contributed " a very large 
proportion of the illustrations," and other material for Stiles' 
History of Wethers field. His antiquarian tastes have led him to 
make a large collection of books, manuscripts, antique furniture, 
curios, paintings and pictures, relating to that town and his own 


Mr. Boardman is a veteran of the Putnam Phalanx, having 
been one of its original members at its organization in 1859. He is 
a life member of the New England Historic Genealogical Society; 
a life member of the Connecticut Historical Society; a member of 
the Topsfleld Historical Society; and of the Ipswich Historical 
Society. He is also a member of the following patriotic orders: 
the Sons of the American Revolution ; the Sons of the Revolu- 
tion ; and the Connecticut Society of the Order of the Founders 
and Patriots of America, being one of the original members of the 
latter, and later its Genealogist. It was largely through his in- 
strumentality that the granite monument was erected in the 
Wethersfield Cemetery to the memory of Samuel Boreman and his 
descendants. He is also an interested member of several benevolent 
and philanthropic societies. 

After Mr. Boardman's marriage, he resided for a year in 
Phelps Block, No. 279 North Main street. In 1853 he removed 
to No. 27 John street, where he lived two years, and then resided 
for a similar period at No. 44 Pleasant street. He removed thence 
in 1857 to the former home of his wife's mother, No. 14 Linden 
Place. In 1859, the Boardman home having been erected, he took 
up his residence there at No. 34 Buckingham street, next door to his 
father. He removed thence April 1, 1866, to No. 74 Farmington 
avenue, where he has since resided. 

The only child of William Francis Joseph Boardman and Jane 
Maria Greenleaf is William Greenleaf Boardman, who was born 
in Hartford, Conn., June 29, 1853, at No. 27 John street. He 
was educated at Mr. Hart's preparatory school, in Farmington, 
Conn., at Mr. Hall's classical school in Ellington, Conn., and the 
Hartford high school. After a connection for a season with Wil- 
liam Boardman & Sons he was obliged to give up business on ac- 
count of his eyesight. He is a life member of the Connecticut 
Historical Society, a member of the Sons of the American Eevolu- 
tion, and the Connecticut Society of the Order of the Founders 
and Patriots of America, being a councillor of the latter. He is 
also president of the Hubbard Escort and treasurer of the Board- 
man Family Association. 


Mr. William G'reenleaf Boardman married in Hartford, Conn., 
October 29, 1874, Eliza Fowler, daughter of Horatio and Abigail 
Whittier Hussey Root, a descendant of Thomas Root, one of the 
early settlers of Hartford. Her mother was a cousin of the poet, 
John Greenleaf Whittier. Mrs. Boardman was born at No. 84 
Hudson street, Hartford, May 11, 1853, and in that home was 
married, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Matson Meir 
Smith, rector of St. John's Church. The present home of Mr. 
and Mrs. William Greenleaf Boardman, is No. 10 Marshall 
street. Their eldest child, Francis Whittier, born at No. 
74 Farmington avenue, Hartford, April 6, 1876, was of un- 
common promise, but was taken from them April 5, 1885. There 
are two children living, Cedric Root, born January 23, 1886, and 
Dorothy Root, born April 26, 1889.

CHAELES GREENLEAF, son of David G'reenleaf and Anna 
(Nancy) Jones, was born in Hartford, Conn., June 2, 1788. He 
was the oldest of a family of seven children, and after completing 
his education in the schools of his native town he entered the 
shop of his father, who was then a goldsmith. Soon after he became 
of age, when his father began to practice dentistry, he interested 
himself in that profession. He studied the authorities of that day 
on dental surgery, learned what was then known of artificial teeth 
and plate work, and mastered the gold-beaters' art so he could 
prepare that metal for fillings. He is probably the person ad- 
dressed in a letter to " Mr. Gold Beater Greenleaf," which was ad- 
vertised in 1822, and this indicates that he was widely known by 
the quality of his product. This work was carried on in 1828, and 
probably earlier, at No. 8 School (Arch) street. In 1820 he ad- 
vertised that he had appointed Messrs. H. Seymour & Co., of 
Hartford, agents " for disposing of Gold Leaf manufactured by 
him." At first he practiced dentistry in connection with his father, 
but later established an office by himself. This was located at No. 
184y 2 Main street, on the corner of Asylum street, over Catlin's 
store. In 1831 he removed to Exchange building, on the corner 
of Main and State streets. This building was destroyed by fire 
October 21, 1832, and he returned to his old office, where he re- 
mained until April, 1839, when he located in the new Exchange 
building. Here he practiced until his death, having his son, Dr. 
James M. Greenleaf, associated with him from 1842. The latter 
succeeded him, taking as his partner Dr. David Greenleaf, his 
brother, under the firm name of J. M. & D. Greenleaf, and con- 
tinued in the same office until his death in 1877. Dr. Charles 
Greenleaf had a reputation as a dentist in all parts of the state 
second to none for good work. 


The home of Dr. Greenleaf was successively on Asylum street, 
the south side, a few rods east of Ford street, and at No. 10 Wind- 
sor street, where he was living at the time of his death. 

Dr. Greenleaf married in Hartford in 1808, ELECTA 
TOOCKER, who was born in Hartford, October 6, 1791, and died 
there April 9, 1864. A sketch of her will be found in this volume 
under the Toocker Ancestry. He died in Hartford, December 18, 
1843, and was buried in the Old North burying ground, his re- 
mains being removed later to Spring Grove Cemetery. On the base 
of the brown stone shaft erected in the family plot, his name is 
inscribed with the dates of his birth and death. 

Children ok Charles and Electa Greenleaf. 

I. Charles, b. Sept. 1, 1809, in Hartford, studied dentistry 
with his father, and for several years practiced his profession in 
Essex, Conn. In 1847, he removed to Peoria, 111., and was the 
first practicing dentist to establish himself in that city. Retiring 
from his profession, he was appointed United States Inspector, 
and served during and after the Civil War. He finally removed 
to Farmington, 111., where he spent his last years in retirement 
from active business, and died October 22, 1888. He was favorably 
known as a quiet, pleasant and companionable gentleman. He 
married in Harwinton, Conn., July 4, 1833, Caroline, daughter of 
Samuel and Annie Wilson, who was born in Onondaga, N. Y., and 
died Dec. 7, 1882. Children :

(1) Charles Henry, b. Feb. 21, 1841. He enlisted Apr. 22, 
1861, in Rifle Co. 'A', First Regt. Conn. Vols., Joseph R. Haw-

Run. Being honorably discharged July 31, 1861, he re-enlisted in 
the 5th N. Y. Cavalry (Ira Harris Guard) in Sept. 1861, and 
was promoted from 1st Sergt. to 2nd Lieut., July 27, 1863. The 
5th N. Y. Cavalry stands first in the list of battles and skirmishes 
in the War of the Rebellion. His record as given by Rev. Louis 
N. Bondrey, Chaplain of the Regt., in 1868, is as follows: "Ser- 
geant Charles H. Greenleaf, May 23, 1862, carried despatches 
from Front Royal to Gen. Banks at Strasburg. By bravery and 
skill he gave timely notice of Stonewall Jackson's flank movement 
whereby he saved Gen. Banks' army, which led the General to rec- 
ommend him for promotion. He was mortally wounded in ac- 
tion while in command of Company A, fighting bravely." His 


wound was received Aug. 25, 1864, at Kearneysville Station, and

wich Academy, where he graduated. For several years he was 
connected witli the Providence line of New York steamers. Later 
he engaged in business as a cotton broker, his office being at No.

thirty years and until 1886. He then became the representative 
of the Board of Underwriters of the Merchants and Miners Trans- 
portation Company, his duties being to examine and appraise 
wrecks in that district. In his later years, there being little to 
engage his attention in that line, his life was spent in quiet and 
freedom from all business cares. His home for many years was 
at No. 118 Governor street. He was a charter member of the 
Providence Board of Trade, and a regular attendant of the Power 
Street Methodist Episcopal Church, and for a long time its chor-

months during her course head-nurse of the female medical ward, 
and during the last six months night matron of the hospital. Two

DAVID GBEENLEAF, son of David Greenleaf and Mary 
Johnson, was born June 19, 1765, in Norwich, Conn. At an early 
age he became an apprentice of Mr. Thomas Harland, goldsmith, 
of Norwich, one of the most expert and best known workmen of 
his day. He there learned thoroughly the mechanism of watches, 
and other branches of the goldsmith's trade. In 1788 he removed 
to Hartford and engaged in business for himself. His shop was 
located " a few rods north of the State House and directly oppo- 
site Mr. Joseph Pratt's tavern." His advertisement shows that he 
made and repaired watches, sold " Chime Clocks and common 
eight day and thirty hour Clocks, Surveyor's Compasses, Cans, 
Pepper Casters, Cream Jugs, Sugar Tongs, Spoons, Buckles and 
all kinds of Gold Smith's and Jewelry work." [Conn. Courant, 
Oct. 27, 1788.] From the first he seems to have had a prosperous 
trade and in 1792 advertised for " two or three active Lads as 
apprentices to the business," and " a good Journeyman " to assist 
him. In the spring of 1796 he removed his business " to the 
corner next north of the Court House " and devoted himself mainly 
to the sale and repairing of watches. In 1798, however, he adver- 
tised " Guard Hilts for military companies, Silver plated swords 
& Hangers for Officers, &c," directing that orders be given to Abel 
Buel or David Greenleaf. For several years he had a partner, 
Frederick Oakes, and the firm was Greenleaf & Oakes, but this 
partnership was dissolved Sept. 30, 1807. His shop was then lo- 
cated on Main street " about 15 rods north of the Court House." 

About 1796 Mr. Greenleaf began to interest himself in real 
estate, and was so engaged for nearly thirty years. He built some 
of the finest buildings in the city at that time, among them one 
recently destroyed by fire on the corner of Main and Kinsley 
streets. Here he had his store for many years, it being the location 
above mentioned. He owned several valuable pieces of real estate 


and amassed a large property. Among these was the building, form- 
erly on Asylum street near Main, now occupied by the Hills block. 
It is said that he built this house, and he may have lived in it at 
one time. After it was disused as a dwelling, it was occupied by 
the Hartford Evening Post for its office until that newspaper re- 
moved to its present location on the opposite side of the street. He 
also owned a fine house which stood on Trumbull street, where 
Allyn street was opened, and which was destroyed for that pur- 
pose. He may also have resided there for a time. His last home 
was situated on Market street facing Kinsley, on the lot now oc- 
cupied by the fine four-story block built in 1864 by Tobias Kohn, 
at which time the Greenleaf mansion was demolished. It was a fine 
old colonial hoiise of the best type of that period. 

In 1811 David Greenleaf retired from the business of a gold- 
smith and began the practice of dentistry. It was probably the 
preparation of gold for fillings which first directed his attention 
to that profession, but he studied it and soon became expert in 
all lines of work known in that day. He was located in 1825 on the 
corner of Main and Lee (Kinsley) streets. In 1827 he advertised 
his proficiency in the following paragraph : " He has devoted his 
whole time, for sixteen years, to his profession and still continues 
to set Artificial Teeth, from one tooth to a full set, without the 
least pain to the patient. He also operates on the Teeth, and 
Gums in all cases requisite to render them sound, sweet and 
healthy, and Extracts Teeth in the most careful manner. He will 
give ample satisfaction to those who may want his assistance, or 
no compensation will be required." 

Dr. Greenleaf was a member of the Court of Common Council 
in 1806 and 1820, a member of the Parish Committee of the North 
Congregational Church, and throughout his life a highly respected 
and honorable gentleman. In 1806 he was Second Lieutenant of 
the First Company Governor's Horse Guards. He died in Hart- 
ford, March 10, 1835, and was buried in the Old North burying 
ground, not far to the northwest of the main entrance. His epitaph 
is as follows: To the Memory | of | David Greenleaf | who died 
March 10, 1835, | Aged 69. The day of his death given in the 


Hartford Courant of March 16, 1835, is " Wednesday " and would 
be March 11th. His will, dated May 21, 1833, and proved March 
14, 1835, mentions his sisters, Mary Brigham and Nancy Kings- 
bury, his brothers, Daniel and John Greenleaf of Walkhill, N Y., 
and William Greenleaf of Stockbridge, Mass., several nephews and 
nieces, and his sons David, Charles, and Daniel, leaving the bulk 
of his property to be equally divided between the two last named, 
the other having received most of his portion. 

David Greenleaf married in Norwich, Conn., November 15, 
1787, ANNA (NANCY) JONES, daughter of Eufus Jones and 
Ann Hartshorn, who was born in Norwich, November 7, 1765. She 
died in Hartford and is buried beside her husband, her epitaph 
being as follows : To the Memory | of | Nancy Greenleaf | wife of | 
David Greenleaf | who died Dec. 18, 1828. | Aged 62 years. Her 
death was announced in the Hartford Courant of October 21, 1828, 
and probably the date should be October 18, 1828.

he resided in Vernon for several years, going thither from Hart- 


ford, but after his father's death in 1835 he went west. After 
spending a short time at Quincy, 111., he settled in St. Mary's town- 
ship, Hancock County, 111., in June, 1836, where he was engaged 
in farming until April, 1843. He then removed to Chili town- 
ship, being one of the first settlers. In April, 1847, he removed 
to Carthage, 111., where he resided until his death, Apr. 7, 1890, 
with the exception of about three years spent in Adams county. 
He was first engaged in the dry goods business, but later became a 
druggist, and was so employed until he retired from business in 
1880. His official ability and integrity were recognized by his elec- 
tion to various offices of trust, being Justice of the Peace, County 
Probate Judge, and for six years postmaster of Carthage. He was 
a communicant in the Episcopal Church, and was respected and 
honored as a citizen and man. He had a family of three children :

brook train-band, and May 11, 1699, he was made captain, by 
which title he was known thereafter. His will, which was proved 
November 14, 1704, mentions children Samuel, b. in November, 
1667, Thomas, Caleb, Mary Parker, b. December 3, 1670 (married 
December 11, 1690, John Parker), Martha Whittlesey; b. June 1. 
(Jan. 18), 1672, and Sarah. His inventory amounted to £647 7s. 
8d. The wife of Captain Jones is said to have been the daughter 
of Deacon FRANCIS BUSHNELL, who was born in 1599, and 
his wife MARIE, born about 1600. His father was JOHN BUSH- 
NELL of Boston, England. Other authorities declare that Mary 
Bushnell was the daughter of Richard Bushnell and Mary Martin 
of Saybrook, but Mary, the daughter of Richard Bushnell, was 
born in January, 1654, and would not have been old enough to be- 
come the wife of Samuel Jones in 1663, or as some have it, in 

V. THOMAS JONES was the emigrant ancestor of this fam- 
ily. He was of Guilford in 1639, returned to England and died 
there of smallpox in 1654. His wife MARY died in 1650. He 
married 2nd, Widow Carter. 


I. ISAAC CLEVELAND, son of Moses Cleveland and Ann 
Winn, was born May 11, 1669, in Woburn, Mass., married in 
Charlestown, July 17, 1699, Mrs. ELIZABETH PIERCE Cur- 
tiss (Curtice) and died in Norwich, Conn., August 10, 1714, 
having removed thither in 1709. Children: (1) Curtice, b. Jan. 
23,1701. (2) Anne, b. June 6, 1703. (3) Miriam, b. July 4, 1705. 
(4) KEZIAH, b. Oct. 24, 1709. 

Elizabeth Pierce, daughter of SAMUEL PIERCE of Charles- 
town, Mass., and MARY, his wife, was born in October, 1666. 
She married 1st, January 3, 1689-90, John Curtiss of Salem, 
Mass., and after the death of her second husband, Isaac Cleveland, 
she married 3rd, Clement Stratford of Norwich, a mariner, who 
died before 1733, when part of the estate of widow Elizabeth 
Stratford in Charlestown, received from Thomas Pierce, was sold. 
She was appointed to administer the estate of her husband, Isaac 
Cleveland, in 1715, and was probably of Canterbury in 1716, where 
a " Widow Cleveland " was taxed on £100. She died in Norwich, 
Conn., October 9, 1742. Samuel Pierce of Charlestown had eleven 
children, Elizabeth being the eighth. He was the son of THOMAS 
PIERCE, who was born in England in 1583 and was admitted to 
the Charlestown Church, February 21, 1634-5. His wife ELIZA- 
BETH was born in 1596. He died in Charlestown, October 7, 
1666, leaving six children, of whom Samuel was the third. [Wy- 
man's Charlestown Genealogies, II. : 756 ff.] 

II. MOSES CLEVELAND, the emigrant ancestor of this 
family, came from Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, sailing from 
London, according to tradition, in 1635. He was born probably 
at Ipswich about 1624 and died in Woburn, Mass., January 9, 
1701-2. While in Woburn he married September 26, 1648, ANN 
WINN, born, says tradition, in Wales or England, about 1626. 
She died in Woburn before May 6, 1682. She was a daughter of 


EDWARD WINN of Woburn and JOANNA, his wife. He was 
a settler there in 16-11, a freeman in 1643 and died September 6, 
1682. His wife died March 8, 1649. He married 2nd, August 
10, 1649, Sarah Beal, who died March 15, 1680, and 3rd, Mrs. 
Ann Page Wood, widow of Nicholas Wood, who died in 1686.

History of Woburn, pp. 599, 649.] 


I. DAVID HARTSHORN, son of David Hartshorn and Re- 
becca Batchelder, was born about 1692, and came to Norwich, 
Conn., with his parents from Medfield, Mass. His marriage, June 
30, 1715, to ABIGAIL HEBARD is recorded at Norwich with a 
list of their children. She was the daughter of Robert Hebard or 
Hibbard and Mary Waldron of Windham, Conn., and was born in 
Wenham, Mass., March 30, 1696. David Hartshorn lived in that 
part of Norwich formerly called West Farms and now Franklin, 
where he owned several tracts of land in 1717. Mrs. Abigail Hart- 
shorn was admitted to the church in West Farms May 28, 1721, 
and he April 21, 1728. Their children were as follows : (1) David, 
b. June 20, 1717. (2) Eliphalet, b. Apr. 2, 1719. (3) Rebecca,

II. DAVID HARTSHORN, son of Thomas Hartshorn and 
Susanna, his wife, was born in Beading, Mass., October 18, 1657. 
As a young man he was a soldier in the Indian wars. Some time 
after his marriage he removed to Medfield, Mass., and is named 
as of that town July 5, 1697, when Thomas Waterman of Norwich 
deeded to him about twenty acres of land with a house located in 
West Farms. This was the time of his removal to Norwich. He 
owned later at least eleven parcels of land in that town. In the 
above named deed he is called a " Tayller " and in a deed of 1703 
"yeoman.'' He was also a physician and the first of that profes- 
sion to settle in that part of Norwich. In 1713 he was engaged 
in building a sawmill on Beaver brook, which ran about 100 rods 
north of his home. He also taught school in Norwich for a time. 
He and his wife were among the original members of the church 


at West Farms and he was from that time to his death a deacon in 
the church. He was selectman and prominent in all civil and ec- 
clesiastical affairs. His death occurred November 3, 1738. In his 
will dated May 9, 1727, he mentions his wife Eebecca and his 
" four children," Ebenezer, Jonathan, Samuel, and David. To 
the latter he bequeathed his " physick books." 

The wife of David Hartshorn was REBECCA BATCH- 
ELDEE, whom he married in Beading, Mass., in 1680. She died 
in Norwich, March 4, 1742-3. She was the daughter of John 
Batchelder and Sarah, his wife, of Beading, where she was born 
October 30, 1663. JOHN BATCHELDEE married 1st, January 
7, 1662, SABAH, who died December 21, 1685; 2nd, in 1687, Han- 
nah, who died in 1693; and 3rd, in 1694, Hannah. He died Sep- 
tember 17, 1705, and his widow August 8, 1722. He had seven 
children, of whom Eebecca was the eldest. He was a soldier in 
King Philip's war in 1675, being in Lieutenant William Hasey's 
Third County Troop, and his heirs were granted land in Westmin- 
ster, Mass., as a bounty in 1733. The father of John Batchelder 
was JOHN BATCHELDEE, one of the early settlers in Beading, 
and living there in 1648. He was born in England, was first a 
proprietor at Watertown in 1636, removed to Dedham in 1641, 
and thence to Beading. He bore the title " Sergeant." He died 
March 3, 1676, and Eebecca, his wife, died March 9, 1662. They 
left two sons, John and David, mentioned in his will, and a 
daughter Mary. The father of John Batchelder 1st was JOSHUA 
BATCHELDEE, who came from Kent County, England, with 
his brother Joseph and settled in Ipswich, Mass., where he died, 
leaving children, John, Elizabeth, and Hannah. [Eaton's History 
of Reading, pp. 45, 46; Pierce's Batchelder Genealogy, pp. 347, 
352, 361.] 

III. THOMAS HABTSHOEN was an early settler in Bead- 
ing, Mass., and a freeman of the Massachusetts Colony in 1648. 
His wife SUSANNA died in 1659 and he married 2nd, in 1659, 
Sarah, widow of William Lamson of Ipswich. He had seven sons 
of whom David was the sixth. 


I. ROBERT HIBBARD, which spelling of his family name 
seems to have been the most ancient, though it was also spelled 
Hebard, Hebbard, Hebberd, Hibard, Hebert. Hibbart, and Hib- 
bert, was the son of Robert Hibbard of Salem, Mass., where he was 
baptized March 7, 1648. His father lived in that part of the town 
now included in Beverly. He married, about 1673, MARY WAL- 
DRON of Wenham, whose name is also spelled Walden, Waldone, 
Waldren, Walderne, and Woldron. After his marriage he settled 
in Wenham, where the birth of his eldest child is recorded. He 
united with the church there in 1694. His sons Robert and Jo- 
seph having removed in 1698 to Windham, Conn., he followed them 
thither in 1700, taking with him a letter of dismission from the 
Wenham church that he might unite with others in forming a 
church in the new settlement on the Shetucket river. Here he was 
a prominent man in affairs, owning several tracts of laud which 
were laid out to him at various times. The record of his death 
is as follows: " Robett Hibard Dyed April: 29: 1710." The 
words "aged 63 years" were written by a later hand. His wife 
died in Windham, March 7, 1736. Administration on his estate 
was granted to his sons Robert and Joseph, October 2, 1710, at 
which time the daughters Sarah and Abigail were minors and 
chose Jonah Palmer as their guardian. The entire estate amounted 
to £264 7s. 8d., which included a lot of one hundred acres. This 
lot was located in that section of Windham between Merrick's 
brook and the Little river in Scotland Parish, and was set off Jan- 
uary 3, 1714-15, when a distribution was made on Abigail's be- 
coming " of full age," to the three sisters, Hannah, Sarah, and 
Abigail. In 1743 David Hartshorn of Norwich, husbandman, 
sold one-third of such a lot there. He also owned other lands in that 
locality. Ebenezer Hibbard gave bonds in 1712 to pay several 
of the heirs part of their portion in money four years after the 


decease of the widow, Mary Hibbard. The portion of Abigail was 
£23 Os. lid. [Manwaring's Hartford Probate Records. II: 222; 
Windham Land Eecords, Vol. D, p. 81, Vol. H, p. 186.] They had 
the following children : 

(1) Mary, b. Aug. 18, 1674; in. July 31, 1705, Jonathan Crane, 

(2) Eobert, b. July 8. 1676; m. Dec. 3, 1702, Mary Reed, who

II. EOBERT HIBBARD, the emigrant ancestor of this fam- 
ily, was born in Salisbury, England, being baptized in the parish 
of St. Edmunds, March 13, 1613. He married JOAN or 

JOANNA , and came to Salem, New England, between 

1635 and 1639. He was a maker of salt, but was also engaged in 
husbandry. He and his wife were admitted to the church there 


May 3, 1646. A grant of twenty acres of land was made to him 
in 1650 and he owned other lands later. His home was located in 
what is now Beverly. He held several town offices and seems to 
have been a respected citizen. In his will dated April 9, 1684, and 
proved June 24th following, he mentioned his wife Joan to whom 
he bequeathed the life use of his house, lands, housing, and mov- 
ables, sons John, Joseph, Robert, and Samuel, and his three unmar- 
ried daughters. His inventory was taken June 4, 1684, and 
amounted to £281 6s. They had the following children : 

(1) Mary, b. Sept. 27, 1641; m. Sept. 8, 1660, Nicholas Snel- 
ling of Gloucester, Mass.

DAVID GREENLEAF, son of Daniel Greenleaf and Silence 
Nichols, was born July 13, 1737, in Bolton, Mass. He was a skilled 
goldsmith, which trade he followed most of his life. Perhaps it 
was to learn this trade that he first went to Norwich, Conn., where 
he married June 2, 1763, MARY JOHNSON, daughter of Ebe- 
nezer Johnson and Deborah Champion, who was born in Norwich 
April 7, 1738. He lived in Norwich some years and is said to 
have gone thence to Coventry about 1766. On November 1, 1769. 
he purchased of John Moore of Lancaster, Mass., land with a 
dwelling house thereon. Here he doubtless lived until he sold the 
property, January 1, 177*2, to Calvin Greenleaf. In the same year, 
November 11, 1772, he and his wife, then of Bolton, Mass., con- 
veyed to Daniel Greenleaf, physician of Bolton, a parcel of land 
with dwelling situated in Norwich. This was property which he 
had previously owned in Norwich. 

During the Revolutionary War David Greenleaf lived at Bol- 
ton, Mass., and was absent from home much of the time in the 
service. His military record as given in the Greenleaf Genealogy 
is as follows: — "Private, May 12, 1777; five weeks, Capt. Jabez 
Hatch's Co., Boston Regt. Guarding stores at and about Boston, 
by order of Council, May 12, 1777, under Maj. Gen. Heath, com- 
manded by Maj. Andrew Symmes. [Mass. Muster and Pay Rolls, 
Vol. XX., p. 3.] Enlisted July 30, 1778; discharged Sept. 13, 
1778. Private, one month, fifteen days, Capt. Manasseh Sawyer's 
Co., 2nd Worcester Regt., Col. Josiah Whitney. Rhode Island 
Campaign [Mass. Arch. Muster Rolls, Vol. XXII., p. 207.] En- 
listed Private, July 28 to Nov. 1, 1780. Capt. Thomas Brintnall's 
Co., Col. Cyprian Howe's Regt. Rhode Island Campaign. Raised 
for three months to reinforce Continental Army. [Mass. Arch. 
Muster Rolls, Vol. XVII., p. 83.] 


To this should probably be added the service which some have 
ascribed to his son David as private from Oct. 26, 1779, to April 
23, 1780, in Capt. Ephraim Hartwell's Co. of Guards at Kutland, 
Mass. [Mass. Arch. Muster Eolls, Vol. XX., p. 25; Vol. XXX., 
p. 120.] 

After the war David Greenleaf removed to Connecticut and 
settled in Coventry. He first purchased land, a house and black- 
smith shop there in 1778 from Daniel Eobertson, Jr. This prop- 
erty he sold in 1791 to his son David of Hartford. 

He died in Coventry, Conn., December 11, 1800, and his wife 
Mary died in Hartford May 1, 1814. In the North burying ground 
in that city their son Dr. David Greenleaf erected a stone with the 
following inscription: To the memory of | the parents of | David 
Greenleaf. | His father died at Coventry, | April, 1800, aged 64. | 
Mary, his mother | died in this town | April 1813, aged 78. | Also 
of | Mrs. Jones, mother of | Nancy, wife of David Greenleaf | who 
died | April 1815, aged 79. These dates are incorrect as to the 
father, whose death on December 11th at Coventry is noted in the 
Hartford Covrant, December 29, 1800, and as to the mother whose 
death " on the 1st inst." is noted in the same newspaper May 3, 
1814. The stone was probably erected after the lapse of some 

Children of David and Mary Greenleaf.

I. EBENEZER JOHNSON, of Norwich, Conn., West Farms 
or Franklin, was the son of John Johnson, and was born in Nor- 
wich, January 25, 1G93-4. John Johnson deeded to his son Ebe- 
nezer, February 26, 1713-14, forty-three acres of land in Norwich, 
situated near his homestead. Tn 1719 he owned several tracts iD 
the town, among them a grant of forty acres, a piece of about twenty- 
two acres and a sheep lot of four acres. He married in Nor- 
wich, October 29, 1717, DEBORAH CHAMPION, daughter of 
Thomas Champion and Hannah Brockway, who was born April 
26, 1697, and died in Norwich, August 22, 1778. He died April 
13, 1779. Mrs. Deborah Johnson was admitted to the church at 
West Farms May 15, 1737, and MARY, who was born April 7th, 
was baptized there April 16, 1738. Their children were as follows: 
(1) Deborah, b. Sept. 13, 1718. (2) Hannah, b. Dec. 30, 1720.

II. JOHN JOHNSON was an early settler in Norwich, Conn. 
It is said by the historian of that town that he had " ten acres 
of land in Lebanon Valley " granted to him in 1677, also a grant 
at Westward Hill, and that his cattle-mark was recorded in 1683. 
The land records show that on March 13, 1702-3, there were entered 
to him 76 acres at the south end of Lebanon Hill and 10 acres of 
woodland laid out to him in 1701. In May, 1706, there was entered 
to him a tract of 41 acres on Westward Hill, which was laid out that 
year. Ten acres of land in Lebanon Valley were deeded to him by 
James Fitch March 2, 1696. We have found no evidence of a grant 
to him as early as 1677. His home was in Lebanon Valley, and 
he conveyed to his son six acres of land there March 24, 1726.

in Saybrook. He received lands from his father in Lyme and 
lived there on the banks of Stony Brook. His death occurred April 
5, 1705, in Lyme, and his will dated April 4, 1705, names his two 
sons Thomas and Henry, and his wife. In his inventory which 
was presented May 20, 1705, and amounted to £232 17s. 9d., the

1664, in Lyme, and after Thomas Champion's death she married 
as his second wife John Wade of Lyme. She died March 2, 1750. 

WOLSTON BROCKWAY was one of the earliest settlers of 
Lyme, and died there shortly after 1717. His wife was HAN- 
NAH BRIGGS, daughter of WILLIAM BRIGGS of Boston and 
Lyme and widow of John Harris. She was born August 28, 1642, 
and married Mr. Harris September 10, 1657. On May 16, 1717, 
Wolston Brockway conveyed personal property to his daughter 


" Hannah Wade " in the event of his and his wife's death. John 
Wade and Hannah Brockway Champion had an ante-nuptial agree- 
ment which they acknowledged February 6, 1705-6. His will dated 
June 25, 1722, and proved April 24, 1728, names his wife Han-

ily, was born in England and came to Saybrook, Conn., before 1647. 
He had lands recorded there in 1660. He removed east of the river 
and lived in a house situated just east of the meeting house and 
near the old burying-ground. The name of his first wife is un- 
known. He married 2nd, Deborah Jones, and their marriage set- 
tlement is dated March 21, 1697-8, the day of his marriage. He 
died February 17, 1708-9, said to be 98 years of age, and his estate 
was divided by agreement. His inventory was £81 18s. 4d. His

DANIEL GREENLEAF, son of Daniel Greenleaf and Eliza- 
beth Gooking, was born in Cambridge, Mass., November 7, 1702. 
He was predisposed in youth to the practice of medicine, both from 
his father's knowledge of that science and the experiences of the 
family. At an early age he began practice in Hingham, Mass., 
and continued there until 1732, when he removed to Bolton, Wor- 
cester County, Mass., where he was a well-known physician for 
sixty years. During the siege of Louisburg he was the surgeon of a 
regiment sailing from Boston, March 24, 1745. He served in the 
same war on a ship of the Massachusetts Colony, and probably did 
service of which no record survives. 

While living in Hingham, Daniel Greenleaf married, 1st, July 
18, 1726, SILENCE NICHOLS, daughter of Israel Nichols and 
Mary Sumner, and widow of David Marsh. She was born in Hing- 
ham, July 4, 1702, and died in Bolton, May 13, 1762. Daniel 
Greenleaf married, 2nd, November 18, 1762, intentions declared 
October 22, 1762, Dorothy Wilder, widow of Josiah Richardson of 
Lancaster, Mass. He died in Bolton, Mass., July 18, 1795, " at a 
great age."

Further details of this family and their descendants will be 
found in the Greenleaf Genealogy. The military records of the 
six sons of Daniel Greenleaf were extraordinary. The three older 
sons served in the French War and all of them were soldiers in the 
Revolution. The service of David has been already given. Daniel 
was a surgeon in a Massachusetts regiment at Louisburg in 1755 
and later was connected with one of the Colonial ships of war. 
In the Revolution he was in Col. Jonathan Smith's Regt. from 
Massachusetts, serving as surgeon of the brigade under Gen. John 
Fellows in New York. It was in view of this enlistment that he 
made his will July 22, 1776. He became distinguished in this 
branch of the service. Israel enlisted Sept. 15, 1755, in Capt. 


Jeduthan Baldwin's Co. of Col. Josiah Brown's Eegt. under the 
command of Maj. Gen. Johnson for service in the Crown Point 
expedition. He was also a private in the Bevolution, July 28 to 
Nov. 1, 1?80, in Capt. Thomas Brintnall's Co., Col. Cyprian 
Howe's Eegt., serving in the Rhode Island campaign; and was a 
private, Jan. 1, 1781, to Jan. 1, 1782, in the 10th Mass. Regt., Col. 
Benj. Tupper commanding. Stephen was a private in Capt. John 
Carter's mounted company, detached from Col. Oliver Wilder's 
Eegt. and marching at the Fort William Henry alarm in 1757. 
In 1758, from Mch. 1 to Dec. 16, he was a sergeant in Capt. Asa 
Whitcomb's Co. of Col. Jonathan Bagley's Eegt. raised for the re- 
duction of Canada and serving more than eight months. William 
had a long record of Revolutionary service extending from Mch. 
20, 1776, to Dec. 31, 1779, and perhaps later. He was at first 
Captain of the 10th Co., 2nd (Worcester County) Regt. and was 
commissioned Lieut.-Colonel. From Aug. 12 to Dec. 9, 1777, he 
was a Captain in Col. Job Cushing's Regt. in the service of the 
Northern Department. On Oct. 12, 1778, he was commissioned 2nd 
Major of the Fifth Regt., and on Oct. 9, 1779, Lieut.-Colonel of the 
2nd Regt. After the war he became a Brigadier-General of the State 
Militia and was sheriff of Worcester county during Shay's Insur- 
rection. Calvin was a private in Capt. Ephraim Hartwell's Co. 
doing guard service at Rutland, Mass., from Oct. 27, 1779, to Apr. 
27, 1780, and perhaps did other service. The patriotic and mili- 
tary spirit was very strong in this family for generations, and Dan- 
iel Greenleaf must have himself inherited a good measure from his 


I. ISRAEL NICHOLS, son of Thomas Nichols and Eebecca 
Josselyn, was born in Hingham, Mass., in 1650, being baptized Sep- 
tember 1st of that year. He married three times. His first wife's 
Christian name was Mary, whom he married September 26, 1679. 
She died March 26, 1688. He married 2nd, June 10, 1688, MARY 
SUMNER, his cousin, daughter of Roger Sumner and Mary Josse- 
lyn. She was born in Lancaster, Mass., August 5, 1665, and died 
February 27, 1723-4, aged 59. On June 24, 1725, then aged nearly 
75, he married Mrs. Rebecca (Lincoln) Clark, widow of John 
Clark and daiighter of Samuel and Martha Lincoln, who was born 
in Hingham, March 11, 1673-4, and died February 4, 1757, aged 
83. Israel Nichols died January 24, 1733-4, aged 83. His will 
was made January 1, 1733-4 and proved February 25, 1733-4. In 
it he mentions the daughters of his first wife, who had five children. 
He had ten children also by his second wife. His thirteenth child 
was SILENCE, born July 4, 1702, who married David Marsh, 
July 12, 1722, and Daniel Greenleaf, July 18, 1726. 

II. THOMAS NICHOLS was the emigrant ancestor of this 
family. He had lands in Hingham in 1637, but after his marriage 
lived for a few years in Scituate, returning thence to Hingham. 
The wife of Thomas Nichols was REBECCA JOSSELYN, daugh- 
ter of Thomas and Rebecca Josselyn, who was born about 1617, 
and died September 22, 1675, aged 58. He married 2nd, Septem- 
ber 23, 1681, Dorcas , who died October 15, 1694. Thomas 

Nichols resided on Fort Hill street, Hingham, and died November 
8, 1696. He had eleven children of whom ISRAEL was the sixth.

III: 280.] 


I. ROGER SUMNER, son of William Sumner of Dorchester, 
was bom in 1632, in England, and came with the family to New 
England. He became a freeman of Massachusetts in 1657, being 
then a resident of Dorchester, and soon afterwards one of the ear- 
liest inhabitants of Lancaster, Mass. He subscribed to the " Laws 
and Orders" of that town April 11, 1659. In 1655 his estate was 
£232, and he subsequently amassed more property. His house lot 
there was on the " Neck," and he owned twenty acres of meadow 
land. He was townsman and served on various committees in town 
affairs. On August 26, 1660, he was dismissed from the Dorches- 
ter Church that he might assist in organizing the church in Lan- 
caster, and was a deacon of the church. After the destruction of 
Lancaster by the Indians he returned to Dorchester. He died in 
Milton, Mass., May 26, 1698, aged sixty-six years. 

The wife of Roger Sumner was MARY JOSSELYN, born in 
1633 or 1634, daughter of Thomas and Rebecca Josselyn, and sis- 
ter of Rebecca Josselyn, who married Thomas Nichols. They 
were married in 1656 in Dorchester, Mass., and their children were: 
Abigail, 1657; Samuel, 1659; Waitstill, 1661; Mary, b. August 
5, 1665; Jaazoniah, 1668; Rebecca, 1671; William, 1673; and 
Ebenezer, 1678. [Early Records of Lancaster, Mass., by Henry S. 

II. WILLIAM SUMNER was the emigrant ancestor of this 
family. He was born in England and came to New England with 
his wife MARY, and children William, ROGER, George, Joan, 
and perhaps Abigail ; and had a son, Samuel, born May 18, 1638, 
and Increase, born February 23, 1643. He was made a freeman 
May 17, 1637, was selectman of Dorchester and in 1658 and for 
years afterward the deputy from that town to the General Court. 
His wife, whose maiden name is unknown to us, died June 7, 1676, 


and lie died in March 1692, aged 86. William Sumner is said to 
have been the only child of Eoger Sumner of Bicester, England, 
who died in 1688. [Savage's Genealogical Dictionary, IV : 232.] 


I. THOMAS JOSSELYN, the emigrant, came to New Eng- 
land from London in the ship " Increase " in 1635, landing at 
Hingham, Mass. He was then forty-three years old and therefore 
born in 1592, and his wife REBECCA was the same age. They 
had a family of five children who accompanied them, Rebecca, aged 
eighteen years, Dorothy eleven, Nathaniel eight, Elizabeth six, and 
Mary one. They also had a son, Abraham, a sailor, and Joseph, 
who came later. He attained some prominence in Hingham, but 
in 1654: removed to Lancaster, Mass., where he died January 3, 
1660-61. His house lot there was in the "Neck" and contained 
about forty acres, and he also had seventeen acres of meadow land. 
At the time of his settlement in Lancaster, his estate was £210, 
and that of his son Nathaniel who accompanied him, £155. They 
subscribed to the " Laws and Orders " November 4, 1654. having 
given them at that time in all ninety acres of land, forty being 
meadow. After the death of Thomas Josselyn his widow married 
William Kerley, Sen., May 16, 1664, being his third wife. Of 
the children of Thomas and Rebecca Josselyn, REBECCA married 
Thomas Nichols, and MARY married Roger Sumner. [Early 
Records of Lancaster, Mass., by Henry S. Nourse; History of 
Hingham, II : 395-6.]

DANIEL GREENLEAF, son of Stephen Greenleaf and Eliza- 
beth Gerrish, was born February 10, 1679-80, in Newbury, Mass., 
and baptized there on the 22nd of the month of his birth. He 
graduated from Harvard College in 1099. For several years he 
practiced medicine in Cambridge, marrying there November 18, 
1701, ELIZABETH GOOKING, daughter of Samuel and Mary 
Gooking, who was born November 11, 1681. It appears that at 
some time previous to May 12, 1701, he had been at Portsmouth, 
N. H., with a view to a settlement there as schoolmaster, for on that 
date it was voted to engage him for a year at forty pounds. He left 
there before 1703. He seems then to have begun to preach to the 
inhabitants of the Isle of Shoals, who petitioned in 1705 for help 
to support him in the ministry. In 1708 he was ordained pastor 
of the church in Yarmouth, Mass. Here he remained for twenty 
years, but in 1727, on account of difficulties in the parish he re- 
moved to Boston. His wife with their twelve children had pre- 
ceded him thither, and with some knowledge of medicine derived 
from her father, had opened an apothecary and grocer's shop, in- 
tending thus to support her family. This was located on what 
is now Washington street, between Court and Cornhill. Here the 
family lived, the father soon joining them there. In consequence 
of an injury received by falling from a horse, Rev. Daniel Green- 
leaf was for many years a helpless invalid. He died August 26, 
1763, and was buried in Kings Chapel burying ground. A por- 
trait of him by Copley has survived, and is reproduced, in connec- 
tion with a sketch of his life, in the Greenleaf Genealogy. His wife 
became totally blind and died November 11, 1762.

I. SAMUEL GOOKING, son of Daniel Gooking and Mary 
Dolling, was born April 21 or 22, 1652, in Cambridge, Mass., 
where he died September 16, 1730. He is said to have been an 
apothecary or physician, but his military ardor and other interests 
overshadowed all else, and this patriotism he inherited by good 
right from his father. As early as 1692 he was called " Captain," 
and in 1711 was ardently engaged in connection with the expedi- 
tion to Canada. He was sheriff of Middlesex County by the ap- 
pointment of the patriots in 1689 and Savage says " rather more 
energetic than discreet in magnifying his office." In 1691 he was 
Marshal General. He was also sheriff of Suffolk county and down 
to July 27, 1729, was largely engaged in matters pertaining to that 

The maiden name of the wife of Samuel Gooking is unknown ; 
her first name was MARY. Their children were : 

(1) Mary, b. Aug. 26, 1679, who rn. 1st, Dr. Samuel Gedney;

II. DANIEL GOOKING was an honored and distinguished 
man in early New England history. The details of his life as a 
young man are not so full as desirable. He was doubtless the son 
of Daniel Gooking, Gent., who in 1621 emigrated with his family 
and fifty men, provided for at his own expense, from England to 
Virginia, arriving there on the 22nd of November. He settled at 
Newport News where he became a planter, holding his own even 
during the troublesome times when the Indians attacked those 
settlements. " On Dec. 29, 1637, a grant of 2500 acres in the 


upper country of Norfolk was made to Daniel Gooking, Esq. ; and 
in 1642 he was made Commander of the Military Commission of 
Upper Norfolk at about the time when a grant of 1400 acres was 
made to his son Daniel, the Captain of the trained band." Accord- 
ing to the age of the son Daniel given in his marriage license, and 
his age at death, he was only a youth nine years of age when he 
came to Virginia. He saw, therefore, in his youth and early man- 
hood, adventurous and stirring scenes which amply prepared him 
for his subsequent career. When twenty-seven years of age he re- 
turned to England and November 11, 1639, was granted by the 
Bishop of London a license to marry MARY DOLLING, an or- 
phan maiden of St. Dunstan in the West, aged twenty-one. On his 
return to Virginia with his wife he engaged in the life of a colo- 
nial planter until 1643. It is said that he was then converted by 
missionaries who had been sent from New England to Virginia, 
and Cotton Mather names especially Rev. William Thompson. He 
bought a ship and with his wife and daughter Mary and others, 
sailed for New England, arriving in Boston, May 10, 1644. Here 
he became a member of the First Church on the 16th of the month 
of his arrival and a freeman the same year. At first he settled 
in Roxbury, but removed to Cambridge in 1648. He was a mem- 
ber of the Artillery Company in 1645 and soon rose to be a highly 
esteemed commander in Middlesex County. In 1649 he was deputy 
from Cambridge to the General Court, and in 1651 the Speaker 
of the House. The next year he became a magistrate and so con- 
tinued to 1686. His military honors multiplied, until he became 
May 11, 1681, Major-General of the forces of the colony. He was 
conspicuous during the Indian wars of that time, and was deeply 
interested with John Eliot in his peaceful labors among the In- 
dians. He was the author of a work entitled, " Historical Collec- 
tions of the Indians of New England." In 1655 he went to Eng- 
land, probably on private business, but was assigned by Cromwell 
to the useless task of trying to persuade the New England fathers 
to colonize Jamaica. The regicides Whalley and Goffe, with whom 
he returned on a second visit in 1660, were sheltered by him in 
New England. Many other labors and experiences filled his life, 


which was probably one of the most varied and eventful of any of 
those times. He died in Cambridge, March 19, 1687, aged 75. 
His wife died after October 4, 1681. He married 2nd, Hannah 
Tyng, widow of Habijah Savage, who was born March 7, 1640, and 
died October 28, 1689. The children of Daniel Gooking were: 

(1) Mary, who m. June 8, 1670, Edmund Baxter. 

(2) Elizabeth, b. Mch. 14, 1645, who m. May 23, 1666, Eev.

STEPHEN GEEENLEAF, son of Stephen Greenleaf and 
Elizabeth Coffin, was born August 15, 1652, in Newbury, Mass., 
and died there October 13, 1743, " at a great age " and surely such 
for one who saw so much service. His fame long survived in that 
ancient town as the " great Indian fighter," and he was universally 
known as " Captain " Stephen Greenleaf. A portrait of this re- 
doubtable warrior taken in 1722 is reproduced in the Greenleaf 
Genealogy. His military record as there given is as follows: — ■ 
"Served in King Philip's War on the Connecticut River; Aug. 
25, 1675, was wounded in the battle of Hatfield ; ' June 4, 1685, 
Ensign Greenleaf appointed Leftenant'; Aug. 2, 1689, in the In- 
dian War; sent to treat with Indians at Pennacook; Oct. 24, 1689, 
Lieutenant; Capt. Greenleaf was much distinguished in the Indian 
Wars, and is mentioned in Mather's Magnalia as commanding a 
company in the celebrated battle with the French and Indians at 
Wells, Me., in 1690, and in the King Philip's War on the Connec- 
ticut River above Hatfield." On March 5, 1696, he petitioned the 
Massachusetts General Court for remuneration in consequence of 
a wound received in the rescue of a family attacked by the Indians 
October 7, 1695. He was paid the sum of forty pounds. There 
are doubtless many other unrecorded incidents of the same nature 
in his life. In the affairs of the town also he was a conspicuous 
character, serving as townsman and on many important commit- 
tees. His reputation was honorable, and his character was en- 
dowed with many virtues. 

The first wife of Captain Stephen Greenleaf was ELIZABETH 
GERRISH, daughter of William Gerrish and Joanna Goodale 
Oliver, who was born in Newbury September 10, 1654, and died 
August 5, 1712. They were married Oct. 23, 1676. After her 
death Captain Greenleaf married 2nd, in 1713, Mrs. Hannah Jor- 
dan of Kittery, Me., who died September 30, 1743, in Newbury.

WILLIAM GERRISH was the emigrant ancestor of this fam- 
ily. He came, says Savage, from Bristol, England, where he was 
born August 20, 1617. His arrival in New England as a young 
man was about 1640, and he settled in Newbury, Mass. Here he 
was the first captain of the train band and was thereafter known 
as " Captain " William Gerrish. In 1650 he was appointed com- 
missioner of the town to settle small causes, and was then Lieu- 
tenant William Gerrish. being made captain the year following. 
He was the deputy from that town to the General Court. 1650 to 
1653, was empowered to drill soldiers, both cavalry and infantry. 
and in 1657 was made a special commissioner. Later he resided 
in Hampton and was representative from that town in 1663 and 
1661. In 1678 he moved to Boston. His death occurred at Salem. 
August 9, 1687, aged 70. The first wife of William Gerrish was 
JOANNA GOODALE, who had married John Oliver before 1644. 
and upon his death married April 17, 1645, William Gerrish. She 
died June 14, 1677. He married 2nd in Boston, Ann, whom Sav- 
age supposes to have been the widow of John Manning and daugh- 
ter of Richard Parker. Captain William and Joanna Gerrish had 
a large family of whom ELIZABETH, born September 10, 1654, 
was the sixth. 

Joanna Goodale was the daughter of MRS. ELIZABETH 
GOODALE, who is presumed by Savage to have been the mother 
of Richard Goodale of Newbury and Salisbury, came from Yar- 
mouth, England, in 1637, and died in Newbury April 8, 1647. If 
so there were three children, another daughter, Susanna, marrying 
Abraham Toppan. The husband of Elizabeth Goodale was JOHN 
GOODALE who died in England, his will being dated in 1625. 





STEPHEN GREENLEAF, son of Edmund Greenleaf and 
Sarah Dole, was born in England, being baptized in the church 
of St. Mary's la Tour in Ipswich, Suffolk County, England, August 
10, 1628. He came to New England as a child with his father 
and lived in Newbury, Mass., being admitted a freeman of that 
town May 23, 1677. His military record as given in the Green- 
leaf Genealogy is as follows: "Ensign, appointed May 31, 1670; 
Lieutenant, 1685; Captain, 1686; as Captain of Militia he went 
with the disastrous expedition against Port Royal, Oct. 13, 1690, 
to Cape Breton, and was there wrecked in a vessel and drowned, 
in company with nine others, Dee. 1, 1690." Captain Greenleaf 
was a man of distinction in Newbury, and their deputy to the 
General Court from 1676 to 1686. In 1689 he was a member of 
the Council of Safety. He was a member of the Newbury Church, 
being admitted December 6, 1674. 

The first wife of Stephen Greenleaf was ELIZABETH COP- 
FIN, daughter of Tristram Coffin and Dionis Stevens, born in 
England about 1634, whom he married in Newbury November 13, 
1651. They had ten children, and she died November 19, 1678. 
He was married by Commissioner Dalton, March 31, 1678-9, to 
Esther Weare, daughter of Nathaniel Weare, and was at the time 
the widow of Benjamin Swett, of Hampton, N. H. She died Jan- 
uary 16, 1718, aged 89.

TRISTRAM COFFIN was the emigrant ancestor of this fam- 
ily. He was born in Brixham (Brixton) parish, Plymouth, Eng- 
land, in 1609, baptized March 11, 1610, being the son of PETER 
and JOANNA COFFIN. His father died about 1640 it is sup- 
posed ; and the son taking his mother, sisters Eunice and Mary, 
his wife Dionis and children, Peter. Tristram, Elizabeth, James, 
and John, came to New England in 1642. His mother died in 
May, 1661, aged 77. After a brief stay at Salisbury and Haverhill, 
he settled in Newbury about 1648. In 1654 he returned to Salis- 
bury, remaining there until 1660, when he removed to Nantucket. 
He was an enterprising and intelligent man. It is said that he 
was the first to use a plow at Haverhill. In Salisbury he was com- 
missioner to try small causes and otherwise honored. In 1659 he 
united with others in forming a company to purchase and settle 
the island of Nantucket. They paid for it £30 and two beaver hats. 
Here he spent the remainder of his life, dying December 2, 1681, 
aged 72. He became one of the leaders of the company and was 
commissioned, June 22, 1671, by Francis Lovelace, Chief Magis- 
trate of the Island. This commission testified to the " fittness 
and capacity " of Mr. Coffin. In several instances and probably 
always he spelled his name " Coffyn." 

The wife of Tristram Coffin was DIONIS STEVENS, daugh- 
ter of Robert Stevens of Brixton, England, where she was bap- 
tized March 4, 1610. They were married about 1629 in England. 

The children of Tristram and Dionis Coffin were: 

(1) Peter, bap. July 18, 1630; m. Abigail, dau. of Edward 
Starbuck; lived at Dover, N. H., where he was a judge of the Sup. 
Ct. of N. H., and d. at Exeter, Mch. 21, 1715.

EDMUND GREENLEAF, the emigrant ancestor, was the 
son of JOHN and MARGARET GREENLEAF, and was bap- 
tized January 2, 1574, in the Church of St. Mary's la Tour, Ips- 
wich, Suffolk County, England. The author of the Greenleaf 
Qenealogy, to whose investigation the early data of this family 
are largely due, claims that the family were originally Huguenots 
by the name of " Feuillevert," which was translated " Greenleaf." 
Edmund Greenleaf was a silk-dyer, which may give some counte- 
nance to the claim of Huguenot ancestry. The family of Green- 
leaf was at all events established in Ipswich, in the sixteenth cen- 
tury. Edmund there married about 1612, SARAH DOLE, who 
it is thought may have been a sister of Richard Dole of Newbury, 
Mass., who came from Ringworthy, near Bristol, and was the son 
of William Dole of Thornbury, Eng. Nine children are recorded 
to them as baptized in St. Mary's Church, Ipswich. 

Edmund Greenleaf came early to New England, probably in 
1635, and settled in Newbury, Mass., where he was granted 122 
acres in the first distribution of land. His home was " near the 
old town bridge, where for some years he kept a tavern." On March 
13, 1639, he was made a freeman. He served in various capacities 
in his town, but was especially distinguished in his military career. 
This is given in the Greenleaf Genealogy as follows : " In 1637, 
commanded a company which marched against the Indians; Nov. 
5, 1639, ordered to be Ensign for the Company at Newbury, Mass. ; 
1642, Lieut. Mass. Provincial Forces; 1644, 'An ancient and ex- 
perienced Lieut, under Capt. William Gerrish;' 1648, Lieut.; 
May 14, 1645, Lieut.; 1645, Capt.; 1644, was head of the Militia 
under Gerrish; 1647, at his own request was discharged from mili- 
tary service." 

About the year 1650, Captain Greenleaf removed to Boston, 
where he spent the remainder of his life, dying March 24, 1671. 


His will is dated December 25, 1668, and is in print in the Green- 
leaf Genealogy, pages 72 and 73. The inventory of his estate 
amounted to £131 5s. 9d. 

The first wife of Edmund Greenleaf died in Boston, January 
18, 1663, and he married 2nd, Mrs. Sarah Hill of Exeter, England, 
who had married 1st, a Wilson and was then the widow of William 
Hill of Fairfield, Conn. She died in 1671.

ELECTA TOOCKER, daughter of Joseph and Hannah 
Toocker, was born in Hartford, Conn., October 6, 1791, and mar- 
ried Dr. Charles Greenleaf in 1808. She was a comely woman, 
well endowed with wisdom and energy, wherewith she managed 
her family affairs after the death of her husband. Six of her 
children were at that time minors, the youngest, Jane Maria, 
being only eight years of age. To them she fulfilled the duties of 
a parent with intelligence, tact and affection, endeavoring to sup- 
ply what they had lost in their father. She lived to see her chil- 
dren grow to maturity and successfully settled in life, and her- 
self passed her three score and ten years, dying in her home at No. 
19 Morris street April 9, 1864. She is buried beside her husband 
in Spring Grove Cemetery, her name with the dates of birth and 
death being inscribed underneath that of her husband on the fam- 
ily monument. 

A portrait of Mrs. Electa Toocker Greenleaf, which has received 
merited praise from her family, was painted from a daguerreotype 
by W. R. Wheeler in 1887, and is in the possession of Wm. F. J. 




JOSEPH TOOCKER, son of John and Mary Toocker, was 
born probably in Killingworth, Conn., about 1742. In the above 
year his father removed to Killingworth from Saybrook, the ad- 
joining town, in whose records the births of the three older chil- 
dren are recorded. Joseph's birth or baptism are not recorded in 
Killingworth. The fact that he was one of this family is, how- 
ever, definitely established by a deed of land in Saybrook. In this 
deed Joseph Toocker of Killingworth, for £6, on June 30, 1773, 
conveyed to Joseph Bishop of Saybrook, land in Petapaug* at a 
place called Pound Hill, consisting of 125 rods, beginning at the 
southeast corner of land that was " my (his) Hon'd Father's, Mr. 
John Toocker, late of S d Saybrook Dec d " [Saybrook Land 
Records, IX., 69.] It was also at Pound Hill that his mother, 
Mary Toocker, located in 1746 after the death of her husband, 
John Toocker. Joseph was left thus at an early age with at least 
three other children, the eldest of whom was not over ten years of 
age, to the care and training of his mother. His grandfather, 
Noah Toocker, and his uncles lived in the same neighborhood. It 
is not certain, however, that all the years of his youth were spent 
at Petapaug, as his mother married a second husband named Hut- 
son or Hudson, and he may have gone with her to the home of his 

Joseph Toocker learned the trade of a shipwright, either un- 
der the instruction of his uncles or elsewhere, and followed it 
all his life. He married about 1765. The first name of his wife 
was HANNAH, but her family name has not been ascertained. 
She was born in 1747 according to her reputed age at death. If 
his mother removed from the home which she had established at 

* This Indian name was early in use as applied to that part of Say- 
brook now called Essex. The word is variously spelled Petapaug, Petti- 
paug, Pautapaug, Potypague, and Putty Paug. 



Pound Hill, Joseph Toocker may have married in some other town 
than Saybrook, where no record of his marriage has been found. 
On June 16, 1768, a deed was executed by John Whitley of 
Saybrook, conveying to Lois Toocker, sister of Joseph, his dwell- 
ing house in Petapaug quarter of that town, standing on a certain 
piece of land that belonged to the heirs of John Toocker, late of 
Saybrook, deceased, it being that land which Noah Toocker had 
bought of Samuel Willard in 1738. This deed is witnessed by 
Joseph Toocker and Hannah Toocker, presumably his wife, and if 
they were married elsewhere, the date may indicate the time of 
their return to Essex. [Saybrook Land Records, VIII : 15, 365. J 
We next meet with Joseph Toocker in Killingworth, where on Feb- 
ruary 10, 1773, Thomas and Charles Hazelton, for £8, conveyed 
to Joseph Toocker (Tucker) of Killingworth, 50 rods of land in 
that town lying near the meeting house on the river and northerly 
from the path near the easterly end of the bridge. [Killingworth 
Land Records, XI : 409.] He added to this tract apparently, for 
on March 26, 1773, Theophilus Morgan of Killingworth, for £40, 
deeded to Joseph Toocker, also spelled Tucker in the deed, " a 
certain dwelling house standing near the town bridge," formerly 
owned by George Hull, to whom it had been granted by the Pro- 
prietors. [Ibid. XI : 439.] This land was not far from that which 
his father had owned about thirty years earlier and the place of 
Joseph Toocker's birth. It is readily identified at the present 
time as near the bridge in Clinton, which crosses Indian River, 
being on the east side of the river and north of the highway. The 
railroad now runs between it and the burying ground, and the 
meeting house lies east of it. Probably it was Joseph Toocker's 
intention at the time of his purchase to settle here and engage 
in shipbuilding, as his father had before him. He sold the prop- 
erty, however, in 1775, on January 4th, conveying the former tract 
for £8, to Daniel Redfield of Killingworth, and on December 5th, 
for £60 deeding the latter tract, with a dwelling house on it, to 
which he had added "two small rooms." [Ibid. XII: 468, 469.] 
This location was subsequently used for shipbuilding purposes. 


The most natural reason for giving up this project at that time 
was his entrance into the service of his country. He is believed 
to have been so engaged throughout the greater part of the Revo- 
lutionary War in connection with the marine service. 

In 1780, and perhaps earlier, Joseph Toocker located in the 
North Society of Middletown, now Cromwell, Conn. In the Grand 
Levy of that year he is named and rated at £22 4s. His name also 
appears in the lists of 1781, 1782, and 1783. On June 23, 1784, 
he bought of Luther Savage of Middletown, for £80, one half 
acre and twenty rods of land in Middletown North Society and 
mortgaged the same to Savage July 23, 1784, for the full amount 
of the purchase money. [Middletown Land Records, XXII : 477, 
478; XXVI: 520.] This land was located on the bank of the Con- 
necticut River and was near the present Cromwell landing place. In 
the deed the purchaser is called " Joseph Tucker now resident in 
Middletown." It is evident that his purpose was to engage in ship- 
building and he bad probably worked there at his trade for several 
years. At this time there was a revival of such interests on the 
Connecticut River and Middletown was a thriving port. Many 
ships sailed thence to all parts and it was the destination of many 
boats and rafts that came down the river with products for ex- 
port. Hartford, however, soon outstripped Middletown in this 
business, being the natural head of navigation, and Joseph Toocker 
followed the course of his business. On November 12, 1787, he sold 
his Middletown property to Charles Churchill for £90, signing the 
conveyance as "Joseph Toocker." [Ibid. XXVII: 525.] 

It seems likely that he removed to Hartford in 1785 and 
worked there at his trade for some other party, as his name is 
not found in the Middletown lists of that year. On November 5, 
1787, one week before the sale of his Middletown property, he 
leased for seven years from the executors of Major John Bigelow 
of Hartford, sixty square rods of land in that town, located on 
the west bank of the Connecticut River. This property he mort- 
gaged May 31, 1790, to John Toocker. [Hartford Land Records, 
XVIII: 408, 474.] On this land he built a dwelling house and 
some other buildings which were noted as standing on it in 1790. 


He sold to John Ackley, April 3, 1798, a dwelling house and build- 
ings standing on land " formerly belonging to John Thomas, but 
now to Josiah Buck of Wethersfield," " being the house I built and 
formerly lived in." This was presumably the above property, the 
land being leased, as no other conveyance appears. [Ibid. XXI: 

Joseph Toocker worked at his trade in Hartford thereafter for 
many years. He is believed to have been in comfortable circum- 
stances, and generally respected. The family were attendants at 
the South Congregational Church, though the parents were not 
members. The date of Joseph Toocker's death is not known, and 
it is doubtful if he died in Hartford. If we may judge from the 
language in the announcement of his wife's death, and the mar- 
riage of his son Joseph in 1820, who is then called "Jun.," he was 
then living. Among the deaths announced in the Hartford Courant, 
August 31, 1819, is the following: "On the 26th, Mrs. Hannah 
Tooker, wife of Mr. Joseph Tooker, aged 72 years." The Burial 
Record also has " Mrs. Hannah Tooker, wife of Joseph, Aug. 26, 
1819, a 72." 

There is no record in Hartford of the probate of his estate, 
and it is thought that he may have returned to Essex or have 
died in the home of one of his children, not long after 1820. 

It appears from the above mentioned deeds that the name of 
Joseph Toocker was variously spelled by others, sometimes being 
" Tucker," or " Tooker." In all instances, however, where he him- 
self wrote it, it is " Toocker," in which he followed the invariable 
practice of his father and grandfather.

JOHN TOOCKEB, son of Noah Toocker and Mary Alcock ; 
was born in Boston, Mass., November 20, 1711, and was baptized 
in the Second Church by Rev. Cotton Mather, D.D., November 23, 
1712. He came as a boy in 1726 to Lyme, Conn., with his father, 
who removed across the river to Petapaug in the town of Saybrook. 
Here John Toocker learned of his father the trade of a ship- 
wright, which he followed all his life, though at times engaged 
either in command of a vessel or as a member of its crew. In 1712, 
being then thirty-one years of age, he removed to Killingworth. 
the south part of that town now in Clinton, intending to establish 
there a shipbuilding business of his own. On February 18, 1742, 
he bought of Gideon Wellman of Killingworth, for £100, land in 
the " planting field " adjoining the landing place, in that town. 
In this deed he is called " John Tucker of Saybrook, now resident 
in Killingworth," and is termed a " Ship Eight." [Killingworth 
Land Eecords, VI : 461.] On February 26, 1743, he bought of 
Jonathan Lane of Killingworth for £1 2s., ten rods of land lying 
at the south end of that which he had bought of Gideon Wellman, 
and near the landing place. In both these deeds the name is 
" Tucker." [Ibid. V: 179.] John Toocker engaged in his business 
of shipbuilding at that place for about two years. On August 27, 
1744, however, he sold this property for £300 to Benjamin Gale of 
Killingworth, it being about two acres of land with a house and 
appurtenances " lying near the landing place in the planting field." 
This deed is signed " John Toocker," and was acknowledged by 
him before John Marshall, alderman, in New York, with Thomas 
Peet and John Marshall as witnesses. [Ibid. VII : 103.] Here we 
lose sight of him, but his death occurred within the next two years. 
His occupation as a shipwright or his employment on some ship 
of war naturally suggests that he may have lost his life in the 
famous expedition against Louisburg in 1745. 


Noah Toocker died in 1754 and the heirs of his son John re- 
ceived a double portion of the estate, amounting to £321 13s. lOd 
The property set off to them was : " All the wood lot," " the Lot 
on the Pound Hill," an interest in the " workhouse," one acre 
at the south end of the home lot, and an interest valued at £63 13s. 
lOd. in "the vessell." Their portion also included £30 advanced 
to John Toocker in his lifetime. 

John Toocker's marriage occurred about 1735, and the Chris- 
tian name of his wife was MARY. Her family name is unknown 
to us. The births of three children, Mary, John, and Lois, are 
recorded in Saybrook. [Saybrook Land Records, II: 396.] On 
July 5, 1746, Lieut. John Clark of Saybrook, in behalf of the town, 
deeded land at Pound Hill, Petapaug quarter, to Mary Tooker, 
who is proven by deeds to have been the widow of the above John 
Toocker. There was a schoolhouse on this land, which was next 
to land of Noah Toocker, and the sale was made because the town 
had another schoolhouse in that section and had decided to main- 
tain only one. [Ibid. VI: 351.] Mary Toocker mortgaged this 
place to Abner Parker, July 25, 1746, and the mortgage was dis- 
charged February 18, 1746-47. [Ibid. VI : 356.] The evident plan 
of the widow, Mary Toocker, was to make here her home, which 
it is thought she did for several years. She married, however, a 
second husband by the name of Hutson, which spelling of the name 
Hudson was common among those of that family then living at 
or near East Hampton, L. I. On July 6, 1773, as " Mary Hutson 
of Saybrook," she deeded to Joseph Bishop all her property at 
Pound Hill, which she had bought July 25, 1746; and at the same 
time Joseph Toocker and Susannah Bate of Southington sold their 
interest. Lois Toocker deeded her right to John Whitley, May 3, 
1772, and as the name of his wife was Mary, the transaction indi- 
cates that John Whitley may have been the husband of the older 
sister. These deeds prove conclusively that Joseph and Susannah 
were the children of John Toocker and that Mary Hutson was their 
mother. [Ibid. VI. 351 ; VIII : 365 ; IX : 69, 70, 195.] 

The date and place of Mary Toocker Hutson's death have not 
been ascertained.

NOAH TOOCKER, whose ancestry is unknown to us,* ap- 
pears in the records of Boston, Mass., in 1707. The earliest men- 
tion of him we have found is that of his marriage August i, 1707, 
to MARY ALCOCK (ALCOT) by Rev. Samuel Myles, rector of 
Kings Chapel, Boston. If any inference is drawn from the fact 
that Noah Toocker was married by Mr. Myles it must be that he 
had a membership in or a prejudice for the Church of England, and 
as his wife's family were in the fellowship of the Congregational 
Churches and his own connection afterwards was with the Second 
Church in Boston, possibly the inference is justified that he had 
only recently come to New England from the mother country or 
some other colony. In the record of this marriage the name is 

* After diligent and extended search among the records of early fam- 
ilies of this name, whether spelled " Toocker," " Tooker," or " Tucker," 
no proof has been found of the ancestry of Noah Toocker of Saybrook. The 
names of his sons would lead us to suspect that his father's name was 
either John or Richard, but those names were common in this family both 
in the Colonies and in Devonshire, Eng., whence many of them came. In 
none of them do we find a Noah. Few of them spelled their name 
" Toocker." John Toocker of Newbury, Mass., " Mariner," who married 
Mary Richardson July 11, 1676, and had Sarah, Mary, Richard, and John, 
might seem to be the most likely connection, but no evidence is found of a 
son Noah. Nor is the name found among other Essex county families 
who were largely engaged in marine and shipbuilding service, though the 
name " Essex" given at an early date to Petapaug would lead us to search 
there. The Weymouth, Hingham, Providence, and Portsmouth families 
usually followed the spelling " Tucker." The Brookhaven, L. I., family 
ha4 no Noah and spelled the name "Tooker." The family of John Tooker, 
or Tucker, of Monmouth county, N. J., son of Henry Tucker of Dart- 
mouth, Mass., may be thought to afford a place for Noah Toocker, but 
none has been found. Several of the name Tucker in New Jersey married 
into the Taber family, and Noah Toocker had sons Philip and Tabor, 
which may indicate some relationship. But we should rather suspect that 
these names came from Philip Tabor of New London. It is probable that 
the name " Noah" offers the best opportunity of determining the ancestry 
of this family. 


" Tucker," but it was made from the minister's notes and so far 
as known he himself never wrote it in any other way than " Noah 
Toocker." This was a common spelling in England, though per- 
haps " Tooker," which conformed to the old pronunciation of the 
name, was more common. His descendants are about equally di- 
vided between " Toocker," " Tooker," and " Tucker," and in the 
old burying ground at Essex, Conn., all three spellings may be 
found on the gravestones, though Noah Toocker was their common 
ancestor. Possibly he might have changed to " Tucker," as many 
emigrants did, had it not been for the fact that when he removed 
to Lyme, Conn., there was then living there Joshua Tucker who had 
come in 1717 from Hingham, Mass., and there are reasons to think 
that Noah and his early descendants persisted in the spelling 
" Toocker " to distinguish themselves from the other family. At 
all events Noah, his son John, and his grandson Joseph of Hart- 
ford retained the spelling " Toocker," though in many deeds drawn 
by another hand, it was either " Tooker " or " Tucker." 

The only other mention of the name of Noah Toocker in the Bos- 
ton records in 1707, or thereafter in deeds, is where on November 13, 
1707, he was a witness to a deed by which Jonathan Balston and 
his wife Sarah, conveyed to Joseph Appleton of Boston a certain 
tract of land with a house thereon, situated on the highway leading 
from the Cove or Saltwater to the South Meeting House. The wit- 
ness here signed as " Noah Toocker." [Suffolk Registry of Deeds, 
XXIII: 164.] Jonathan Balston was a mariner, and it may be 
inferred that Noah Toocker was associated with him at this time 
either by acquaintance, employment, or neighborhood. He was 
then working in Boston at his trade as a shipwright. There is no 
conveyance by or to Noah Toocker in the Registries of Suffolk, 
Middlesex, or Essex, where such would naturally be looked for if 
he owned real estate or was an heir of one who did. This may in- 
dicate that he was at least a new comer in that region. Nor has any 
connection been found to exist between him and others of his name. 
Several of his children are recorded as born in Boston and bap- 
tized in the Second Church; two of them, November 23, 1712, 
when the mother, Mary, not daughter as the printed volume would 


suggest, was also baptized. He resided there until 1726 or for at 
least nineteen years and labored as a shipwright. He accumulated 
some means, or received some through his wife, for he had such 
when he removed to Lyme, Conn. 

The first wife of Noah Toocker died in Boston between the 
years 1716 and 1721. He married, 2nd, February 6, 1721, Mar- 
garet, daughter of George Courtney and Dorcas Selley, who was 
born in Boston June 5, 1699. Her parents were married in Bos- 
ton by Rev. Samuel Myles, June 2, 1698. She was some years 
younger than her husband, Noah Toocker, and outlived him. 

The reason for the removal of Noah Toocker to Lyme, Conn., 
was his hope of prosecuting at the mouth of the Connecticut River 
his business as a shipwright. At that time this was a well-known 
port and was important in the traffic along the Sound and up the 
river. Barber in his Connecticut Historical Collections, page 534, 
says in speaking of Essex : " Shipbuilding was begun in this 
place about 1720 by Mr. John Tucker." If the name is correct, 
this may have been the father of Noah Toocker, who went to Say- 
brook with his son. We think, however, it is an error, and that 
the date should be 1732, and the pioneer in shipbuilding in that 
once famous seat of this industry was Noah Toocker. 

On June 8, 1727, Joseph Tallman, of New London, adminis- 
trator of the estate of Doctor Charles Acourt of that town, by 
order of the General Court, October 13, 1726, for £40, conveyed to 
Noah Tucker, " late of Boston now Resident in Lyme " land in 
Saybrook, Petopoge quarter, consisting of four acres with a dwell- 
ing house thereon, and adjoining on the south land of Hezekiah 
Buckingham. [Connecticut Colonial Records, VII: 56; Saybrook 
Land Records, III : 501.] This was the original location of the 
shipbuilding interest. Noah Toocker had owned no land in Lyme 
and only remained there a few years. The births of two of his 
children are recorded there, — Dorcas, September 29, 1727, and 
Tabor, December 16, 1729. On April 30, 1731, Thomas Starkie, 
Sen., of Saybrook, deeded land on Stone Pit Hill in Saybrook to 
" Noah Tooker of Lyme," but on November 6, 1733, John Pratt, 



Jr., deeded land at Cornfield Point, to " Noah Tooker of Saybrook." 
[Saybrook Land Eecords, IV: 325, 547.] It seems therefore that 
he removed from Lyme to Saybrook between the years 1731 and 
1733. He acquired other lands there later, among them a tract 
from Samuel Willard in 1738. 

Little is known of Noah Toocker during subsequent years 
and his life was not an eventful one thereafter. He lived to see 
his children grow to maturity and settle in life. His sons and 
grandsons succeeded him in the shipbuilding interest and the 
family for several generations furnished some of the most expert 
workmen in that trade at Essex, as well as ship captains of skill 
and fame. 

Noah Toocker died in 1754, probably in the month of Novem- 
ber, his inventory being taken on the 18th. Administration on 
his estate was granted to his son Eichard Toocker of Saybrook De- 
cember 3, 1754. His inventory amounted to £2693, Os. 3d. It 
shows that he had many tools used in shipbuilding and included 
one-fourth of the sloop " Lilly," thirty tons. The property was 
distributed in 1756, one-third to the widow, a double portion to 
the legal representatives of John Toocker, deceased, and a share 
to Eichard, Noah, Tabor, Timothy, Mary the wife of Thomas 
Starkie, Jr., Dorcas the wife of Peleg Hill, Margaret Toocker, and 
Anne Toocker, the only child of Philip Toocker, who died in 1755. 
[Guilford Probate Eecords, VI : 177ff., 304 ; VII: 51.] Noah 
Toocker was undoubtedly buried in the old burying ground at Es- 
sex, though no gravestone to his memory has survived.

I. JOHN ALCOCK, son of Thomas Alcock and Margery, his 
wife, was born July 3, 1651, in Dedham, Mass., or in Boston. He 
married about 1677, CONSTANCE MYLAM, daughter of Hum- 
phrey Mylam of Boston and Mary Gore. They resided in Boston 
where he died before 1712, for at that date Constance Alcock of 
Boston, " widow," " one of the daughters and co-heirs of Humphrey 
Mylam, late of Boston, cooper, deceased," for £100 deeded to 
Bobert Rand her one-fourth interest in a messuage or tenement, the 
dwelling house of her late father, and also a wharf near mill creek 
and land of Hannab Mylam, single woman. [Suffolk Registry of 
Deeds, XXVI : 259.] John and Constance Alcock also deeded land 
to William Lamb in 1677, in connection with Margery Pritchett 
(Prichard) "widow," who was John Alcock's mother and had 
married Richard Pritehard of Charlestown as her third husband. 
[Ibid. X. 221.] John and Constance Alcock had children: (1) 
MARY, b. May 3, 1678. (2) Mylam, b. Aug. 8, 1680. (3) Han- 
nah, b. Nov. 5, 1682. (4) Sarah, b. Jan. 18, 1685. (5) Rebecca,

JOHN GORE, was of Roxbury, in 1635, having brought from 
England his wife, RHODA, and probably daughter MARY, and 
son John, b. May 23, 1634, in England. He died June 2, 1657, in 
Roxbury, and in his will mentioned his daughter, Mary Mylam. 


II. THOMAS ALCOCK, came to New England in 1630, in the 
fleet with Winthrop. He was a brother of George Alcock, who
