TO MY SONS, 

WILLIAM HUMPHREY ASPINWALL 

AND 

CLARENCE AIKIN ASPINWALL, 

THIS BOOK IS LOVINGLY DEDICATED. 



"Ay, thus it is, one generation comes, 

Another goes, and mingles with the dust; 
And then we come and go, and come and go, 
Each for a little moment filling up 
Some little place ; and then we disappear 
In quick succession; and it shall be so 
Till time in one vast perpetuity 
Is swallowed up." 



PREFACE, 

In presenting this work to the descendants of Peter Aspin- 
wall, I have the same story to tell, as usually related by com- 
pilers of family genealogies. 

About eleven years ago, I made up my mind that I would 
like to know something about my ancestors, and, accordingly, 
began to make some researches in that direction. At that time, I 
had no intention to compile a genealogy of the Aspinwall family, 
but, in the course of the researches mentioned, I came into pos- 
session of so much data concerning the early members of this 
family, that I finally resolved to attempt the collection of a record 
of all of Peter Aspinwall's descendants. This book is the result. 
With but three or four exceptions, all of his descendants bearing 
the name have been traced, down to the present generation. 

If it shall happen that it gives as much pleasure to those who 
receive it, as it has to me during the years in which I have been 
engaged in collecting thCvSe records, I shall feel repaid for the 
labor expended during that time. To all those correspondents 
who have aided and encouraged me during these years, I wish to 
return my heartfelt thanks. I cannot name them all here. 

I cannot refrain, however, from making acknowledgment to 
Mr. Edward Augustus Bowen, of Brooklyn, N. Y., for his court- 
esy in turning over to me, a number of years ago, the notes con- 
cerning the early generations of the Aspinwall family which he 
had collected, being himself a great-grandson of Dr. William 
Aspinwall of Brookline. Also, to Mr. Thomas Aspinwall of Bos- 
ton, Mass., for kindly furnishing me a copy of the sketch of his 
ancestors, written in 1767, by his great-grandfather, the said Dr. 
William Aspinwall. 



6 PREFACE. 

This book is purely a genealogy. No attempt has been made, 
except in the earlier generations, to give any extended biograph- 
ical account of the persons recorded. To have done so would 
have enlarged the work to such an extent that it could not have 
been published with the limited number of subscribers that 
could be secured. Such imperfections as exist in the matter of 
dates, names, etc., result through the neglect by correspondents 
to supply the proper data. . They are not numerous. It is sug- 
gested that additions and corrections be sent to me, that a record 
may be kept of same, and, if advisable, a supplement issued in 
the future.

EXPLANATION. 

Beginning with Peter Aspinwall, his descendants in this 
work are arranged in numerical order, and whenever a further 
account is given of an)'- individual, his or her name is preceded 
by a cross (+), and the additional record will be found in its 
niimerical place farther along in the book. By this simple 
method, any person may trace his or her ancestry back to the 
original settler, b}^ merely turning back to each number as it 
appears in its order. I know of no simpler plan. 

The figures placed over the names indicate the generation of 
the person ; thus, Algernon Aikin' Aspinwall, denotes that he is 
of the seventh generation, Peter' being the first. 

The usual abbreviations are used, " b.," born; " d.," died; 
"bap.," baptized; "dau.," daughter; "m.," married; " ch. " 
children, etc. 



THE ASPINWALLS IN ENGLAND. 

The Aspinwalls, orAspinalls, have been for several centuries 
located in the County of Lancaster, England. The origin of the 
family is unknown to the compiler of this work. The name, 
Aspinwall, like many others, has undergone several changes, and, 
as near as can be ascertained, has arrived at its present form, 
through the various gradations, from Aspenhalgh, Aspinhaugh, 
Aspinall, Aspinwall, the name originally signifying, an ''Aspen 
Mead," or an " Aspen Vale." 

It is not the province of this work to trace the family from 
its earliest known history in England, but, as Toxteth Park, in 
Lancaster County, was the home of our ancestor, a brief account 
of the place will no doubt be of interest. 

Toxteth Park, now a suburb of the city of Liverpool, had 
been the property of the Crown from the time of King John, but, 
in the year 1604, was disparked, and came through purchase into 
the hands of one Richard Molyneux. Prior to this time, it is 
spoken of as "waste land without inhabitants," but when it was 
disparked, a number of persons settled on the land, and began 
its cultivation. Among these was one Edward Aspinwall, no 
doubt a member of the Aspinwall family in the immediate vicin- 
ity. He appears to have been the earliest settler of the name at 
Toxteth Park, and, from various circumstances, the compiler of 
this work believes that he was the father of Peter Aspinwall, our 
ancestor, although he has not had the opportunity to make any 
researches to settle this point. It appears that the early inhabit- 
ants of Toxteth Park were Puritan in their leanings, and, in 1611, 
Richard Mather, afterwards minister at Dorchester, Mass., at the 
age of 15 years, was called there to take charge of the school. He 
lived, while at Toxteth, in the family of Edward Aspinwall, and 
while there became converted, which, as he expresses it, " was 
occasioned by observing a difference between his own walk, and 
the most exact, watchful, faithful and prayerful conversation of 
some in the family of the learned and pious Mr. Edward Aspin- 
wall, of Toxteth, where he sojourned." 



10 THE ASPINWALLS IN ENGLAND. 

These Puritans, at Toxteth, built a chapel, the first one con- 
nected with the "dissenters" in the neighborhood of Liverpool. 
The building then erected is not now in existence, but upon its 
site is the present church, which was built something more than 
a hundred years ago, and preserves some of its features, while 
the old burying ground remains undisturbed. In this church, in 
the main aisle, on the stone covering of a vault, is a brass plate, 
bearing the following inscription: "Edward Aspinwall of 
Tocksteth Park, Esquire, Departed this life in March the 
Twenty-ninth, A. D. 1656." Then follow verses 44, 53 and 54 
of the 15th chapter of 1st Corinthians. 

Many of these Puritans, in 1630 and the following years, emi- 
grated to New England. 

To those interested in coat-armor, it may be said that there 
appear, in the various works on heraldry, several different coats- 
of-arms. Burke's Heraldry gives to the Aspinalls of Lancaster 
Co., two different ones, the first, "Or. a chev. between three 
griffins' heads erased sa. Crest — a demi griffin erased sa. beaked, 
legged, and collared or. ;" the second, "Ar an aspen leaf or." 
Edmonson's Heraldry gives to Aspinwalls of Northumberland, 
" Gu. — two bars dancettee or., within a bordure sa." The motto 
is " Aegis fortissima virtus," virtue is the strongest shield. 



WILLIAM ASPINWALL. 

The earliest record of any person in America bearing the 
name of xA-spinwall is tliat of William Aspinwall, who came with 
Winthrop, to Massachusetts Bay, in 1630. In the " Historical 
Sketch of the First Church in Boston," it is stated that " The 
Arabella, the vessell in which they crossed the Atlantick, 
anchored in Massachusetts Bay on the 17th June, 1630, after 
exploring the Mystick River, they came ashore at Charlestown on 
the first of July, with a view to a permanent residence." Also 
that, "On the 2Tth. August therefore a fast was appointed, a 
covenant formed and subscribed, Mr. Wilson was chosen Teacher, 
Mr. Nowell an Elder, Mr, Gager and Mr, Aspinwall deacons." 
This was William Aspinwall. His name was the tenth on the 
list, and that of his wife, Elizabeth, the sixteenth. The society 
soon removed across the river to Boston, but William Aspinwall 
was the second on the list of thirteen who remained inhabitants 
of Charlestown. He took the oath of freeman April 3, 1632, 
In 1633, he also removed to Boston, where he appears to have been 
one of the leading men of the new settlement at that place, and 
was elected a selectman in 1636 and 1637. In 1637, he was chosen 
a Deputy to the General Court, in place of Sir Henry Vane, 
When the religious excitement, caused by the " Antinomian 
Heresy," broke out, large numbers of the new Colony espoused 
the cause advocated by Mrs, Ann Hutchinson, and her brother, 
Rev. Mr, Wheelwright, Among them was William Aspinwall, 
The controversy grew bitter, and, in March, 1637, the General 
Court summoned Wheelwright to answer for a sermon recently 
preached by him, "wherein, as they alleged, he had fanned the 
flame of dissension instead of quenching it." Wheelwright was 
pronounced guilty of sedition and contempt, but sentence was 
deferred until the next Court. In the meantime, the church at 
Boston presented a petition in his behalf, justifying his sermon. 
This petition was drawn up by William Aspinwall, and was 
signed by about sixty of the principal men in Boston. At the 



12 WILLIAM ASPINWALL. 

November meeting of the Court, William Aspinwall and John 
Coggeshall, both deacons of the chtirch at Boston, and deputies 
to the General Court from that town, were dismissed from the 
Court, the one for having signed, and the other for defending 
the remonstrance of the church. At the same term of the Court, 
William Aspinwall was tried for the same offence, and, being 
found guilty, was sentenced to be disfranchised and banished 
from the Colony, but he was allowed to remain until the next 
spring, 

" A General Court, held atNewetown, the 2th Day of the 9th 
Mo @ 1637. Mr. William Aspinwall being questioned in regard 
his hand was to a petition or remonstrance, & he justified the 
same, maintaining it to bee lawful ; the Court did discharge him 
from being a member thereof." 

"Mr. Willi: Aspinwall being convented for haveing his 
hand to a petition or remonstrance, being a seditious libell, and 
iustifing the same, for wch & for his insolent and turbulent car- 
riage, hee is disfranchized & banished, puting in sureties tor his 
departure before the end of the first month next ensuing. Mr. 
John Glover & Mr. Aspinwall are each of them bound in a 100 
pounds a piece for Mr. Aspinwall's depure by the time limited." 
After his banishment, William Aspinwall followed Roger 
Williams to Rhode Island, and was one of the nineteen Aquid- 
neck settlers who signed the civil compact formed at Providence, 
March 7, 1638, and was chosen the first Secretary of the new 
Colony. 
" The 7th day of the first month 1638. 

We whose names are underwritten do here solemnly in the 
presence of Jehovah incorporate ourselves into a Bodie Politick 
and as he shall help, will submit our persons, lives and estates 
unto our Lord Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of 
Lords and to all tho e perfect and most absolute lawes of his 
given us in his holy word of truth, to be guided and judged 
thereby."

and fourteen others. 
William Aspinwall held several positions of trust in Rhode 
Island, but, at a General Meeting, January 11, 1639, "the magis- 



WILLIAM ASPINWALL. 13 

trates were directed to deal with William Aspinwall concerning 
his defaults." 

On February 7, 1639, Mr. Aspinwall was proceeded against 
as a suspected person, for sedition against the state. 

"Mr. Aspinwall, being a suspected person for sedition 
against the State, it was thought meet that a stay of the building 
of his Bote should be made, whereupon ye workman was for- 
bidden to proceed any further." 

He probably left Rhode Island soon after this, and during 
the next three years the only record of him that has been found, 
which shows his whereabouts, is his testimony as a witness in a 
case before the General Court at New Haven, Conn., on March 
2, 1642. 

At a General Court, held at Boston, October 7, 1641, the 
following order was passed : — 

" Willi: Aspinwall hath a safe conduct granted him to come 
& satisfy the counsell &, if they think meete, to stay till the 
General Court; if not hee is to depart till the General Court, & 
then hee hath liberty to come to the Gen^'all Court," 

Early in 1642, his sentence of banishment was revoked, and 
he again took up his residence in Boston. 

" In the beginning of the year 1612, Mr. Aspinwall that had 
been censured by the Court for joining with those, and having 
his hand to the remonstrance about Mr. Wheelwright, being 
licensed by the General Court to come and tender his submission, 
was on the 27th of March that year, reconciled to the Church of 
Boston. He made a very free and full acknowledgment of his 
errour and seducement, and that with much detestation of his 
sin. The like he did afterwards before the magistrates, who 
were appointed by the Court to take his submission ; and upon 
thir certificate thereof, the sentence of banishment passed against 
him with the rest, was taken off." 

" William Aspinwall, upon his cirtifficat of his good car- 
riage, is restored againe to his former liberty and freedome." 

He was a man of superior education for those times, and was 
soon appointed to several important offices. In 1643, he was 
appointed clerk of the writs for Boston, and in 1644 was chosen 
Recorder, and in the same year was appointed a Notary Public. 
He held these offices for some eight years, and a large portion of 
the deeds and other legal papers in and about Boston during that 



14 WILLIAM ASPINWALL. 

time were drawn, executed or witnessed by him. In 1643, he 
joined the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Boston. 
He lived on Washington Street, just south of School Street, 
and his land extended back to the Common. 

During his residence in Boston, it is recorded that, "divers 
of the Merchants of Boston being desirous of discovering the 
great lake * * -^ they set out in a pinnace which was to sail 
up the Delaware River so high as they could go, and then some 
of the company under the conduct of Mr. William Aspinwall, a 
good artist, and one who had been in those parts, to pass by 
small skiffs or canoes up the river as far as they could." They 
were, however, prevented from going up the river by the Dutch 
and the Swedes ; were fired upon from a fort, and were obliged 
to return to Boston without discovering the " Great Lake." 

The statement that William Aspinwall "had been in those 
parts," leads to the belief that he must have been there between 
the time of leaving Rhode Island and his return to Boston in 
1642. 

He seems to have had the faculty of continually getting hiin- 
self into trouble. At the General Court, October 14, 1651, "Mr. 
William Aspinwall being accused for chargeing the Court and 
jury to goe agt law and conscience in making the landlord to pay 
rent to the tenant, which the Courte hauinge heard & examined, 
doe order & determine as follows, viz : that from hencefor'th the 
sd Mr. Aspinwall shalbe suspended from the exercisinge the 
office of recorder, or clarke, in any County Court, as also to pay 
the sum of thirty shillinge to the jury for their attendance and 
entringe the petition, & for the attendance of two witnesses, 
fower shillinges, & It is ordered that Mr. Edward Rawson, secre- 
tary to the General Court, shall henceforth be recorder for the 
county of Suffolk, & that Mr. Aspinwall shall deliver him all the 
records belonging to the sd county. Its ordered by this Court, 
that vpon the request of the inhabitants of Boston, Jonathan 
Negoos shalbe approued of as Clarke of the writts for that 
towne, in the room of Mr. Aspinwall, who is hereby ordred to 
deliver him the recordes of deaths, births and marriages as 
belonginge to that office." 

Soon after this he returned to England, where he lived the 
remainder of his life. The date and place of his death have not 
been ascertained, but, on April 13, 1662, he was living at Ches- 
ter, England, as a letter, written by him from there on that date,

referring to land in Boston which he gave to his son, is in the 
Massachusetts archives. 

Not long since a diary or journal, kept by him while recorder 
at Boston, was fortunately discovered in that city. It is of 
great historic interest, and it is understood is to be published 
by the Record Commissioners of Boston. He published, in Lon- 
don, in 1653, a curious religious work entitled, " A Brief Descrip- 
tion of the Fifth Monarchy or Kingdom That shortly is to come 
into the World." In this work he predicted the arrival of the 
millenium not later than the year 1673. 

In 165-i, he published, "An explication and Application of 
the Seventh Chapter of Daniel, etc." 

In 1655, he published, in London, " An Abstract of Laws & 
Government, wherein as in a mirror may be seen the wisdom 
and perfection of the Government of Christ's Kingdom, accom- 
modable to any State or form of government in the world, that is 
not anti-Christian or tyrannical. Collected and digested into the 
ensuing method by that godly, grave and judicious divine, Mr. 
John Cotton of Boston, in New England, in his lifetime, and pre- 
sented to the General Court of Massachusetts. And now pub- 
lished after his death by William Aspinwall." 

He also published, in 1655, at London, " The Work of the 
Age, or the Sealed prophecies of Daniel opened and applied. 
Amending sundry places in our common translation, etc." 

In 1656, he published, in London, " The Legislative Power 
is Christ's peculiar Prerogative, proved from the 9th of Isaiah, 
vers. 6, 7, by William Aspinwall." 

William Aspinwall probably came from the County of Lan- 
caster, England, where the Aspinwalls were principally located. 
He left no descendants bearing his name in this country, unless 
Peter Aspinwall, whose descendants are given in this work, was 
his son. His two eldest daughters, however, married and 
remained here. His wife and four youngest children no doubt 
returned to England with him, as no further record has been 
found of them in this country. Of his children given below, 
all but Mary were born after the arrival of their parents in 1630. 
The birth of Mary is not recorded at Boston, but she was 
undoubtedly, as believed by Mr. Savage, in his Genealogical 



16 WILLIAM ASPINWALL. 

Dictionary, the daughter of William Aspinwall. No other family 

of Aspinwalls was in this country except that of Peter Aspinwall, 

and she certainly was not his daughter. It is true that Mary 

Aspinwall did not marry John Gove, of Cambridge, until several 

years after the date of her father's return to England, but, being 

of mature years at that time, no doubt preferred to remain in 

this country. She is therefore recorded as the oldest child in 

this family.

PETER ASPINWALL AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



Peter Aspinwall, the founder of the Aspinwall family in this 
country, was undoubtedly related to William Aspinwall of the 
preceding chapter, although the compiler of this work has not 
been able to establish the exact relationship. It is believed that 
he was either a son or a brother, more probably a brother. 

Dr. William Aspinwall, of Brookline, Mass., a great-grand- 
son of Peter Aspinwall, wrote an account of the family in 1767, 
which is in the possession of one of his descendants. This was 
written at a time when he should have been in possession of the 
information warranting the statements he made. He says, 
" Peter Aspinwall came from Toxteth Park, near Liverpool, Old 
England, to Dorcester, near Boston, in New England, in company 
with the 4000 who came in the year 1630." Aside from this state- 
ment, that Peter Aspinwall came in 1630, we have no knowledge, 
and the first mention of him on any records is in May, 1645, at 
which time he was made a freeman (or voter) by the General 
Court, and was then living at Dorchester, Mass. About this 
time, he was married to his first wife, for the records of the First 
Church of Boston show that, " Also o^ sister Alice Sharp now ye 
wife of Peter Aspinwall of Dorchester had Ires of Recomend 
granted unto her to ye Church at Dorchester. The 8th day of 
ye 4th moneth (June) 1645." 

If Peter Aspinwall came in 1630, it is strange that we have 
no mention of him at Boston or Dorchester, prior to 1645. We 
know, from a deposition made by him in 1664, that he was born 
about 1612, and yet he was not made a freeman until 1645, when 
he was 33 years of age, which i/S somewhat singular, if he had 
been here since 1630. 

Nothing further concerning him appears on the Dorchester 
records, and, in 1650, he removed to Muddy River, now known 
[3] 



18 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

as Brookline, Mass., where, in connection with one Robert Sharp, 
perhaps his brother-in-law, he purchased a farm of one hundred 
and fifty acres. The following is a copy of the deed of said farm : 
"14(9)1650. 

Mr Wni Coleborne of Boston granted vnto Peter Aspinwall 
& Robt Sharpe his fferme at Muddy river containing an hundd 
& fifty Acres more or lesse Wth all houseing fenceing^ woods 
marshes &c : together with sixteene Acres in the Common ffield 
bounded wth Muddy River East John Aredley South, the Cedar 
swampe west & Garret Bourne north. The fferme aforesd was 
bounded wth Mr, Cotton south muddy river East, William Pell 
west, Jacob Eliot Edward Devotion & James Browne North. 
And this was by an absolute deed dat 14 (6) 1650. Sealed signed 
& dd in presence of W^^ Aspinwall & W'^ Price. Margery Cole- 
bron wife to ye sd W^ Colbron did ye IT Jaini 1654 acknowledge 
before me that she freely gave hir Consent to ye sale and 
Renounct hir dowrie therein. 

Humphrey Atherton." 

This deed is in the handwriting of William Aspinwall, men- 
tioned in the preceding chapter, who was at the time Recorder 
of Deeds in Boston. 

Upon this farm, Peter Aspinwall, in the year 1660, built the 
house which was the family homestead for many generations, 
and which is shown as a frontispiece to this work. This house 
stood until the 3'ear 1891, when it was taken down, being at that 
time the oldest house in the old town of Brookline. It was 
located on the present Aspinwall Avenue, near St. Paul's Church. 

Here Peter Aspinwall lived and died. He was a farmer, and, 
judging by the inventory of his estate, taken after his death, 
which included a tanning outfit, he probably carried on also the 
tanning business. He does not appear to have been very 
conspicuous in public affairs, but held several town offices. He 
was surveyor in 1651-2; also in 1661-2, and Constable in 1667. 
He was appointed, April 24, 1676, with two others, a committee 
" for the preventinge of excessive drinkinge & disorder in private 
houses," and was elected, March 25, 1678, " to oversee and reg- 
ulate the ffences about the common ffield at Muddy River." 

If we accept the account of Dr. William Aspinwall, pre- 
viously referred to, Peter Aspinwall was three times married, 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 19 

althougli no record, nor other evidence has been found indicating' 
that he was married more than twice. His first. wife was Alice 
Sharp, who may have been a sister of that Robert Sharp, in con- 
nection with whom he bought the farmx described in the fore- 
going deed. He married her, probably, early in 1645. Dr. Aspin- 

wall, in his account savs, "he married Morrill and lived 

with her 16 years without children; and then he married 
Remember Palfrey." Dr. Aspinwall does not mention a wife 
Alice Sharp, and it is possible that he was mistaken in the name 
of the first wife, and that there was no wife Morrill. 

The compiler believes that Alice Sharp, the first wife of 
Peter Aspinwall, lived until about 1661, which would be 16 
years from 1615, when we know that she was his wife. On Feb- 
ruary 12, 1662, as time is now reckoned, Peter Aspinwall was 
married by Gov. John Endicott to Remember, daughter of Peter 
and Edith Palfrey, of Reading, Mass. She was baptized at Salem, 
Mass., September 16, 1638. 

Peter Palfrey came from England with the "Dorchester" 
Company, which began a plantation at Cape Anne, Mass., in 
1621, of which Roger Conant was governor. This company was 
not successful, and, in 1626, the enterprise was relinquished, and 
most of the emigrants returned to England. Peter Palfrey, how- 
ever, and two others, remained with Conant, and, in the autumn 
of 1626, removed to a place called Naumkeag, and laid the 
foundations for a town, which was subsequently called Salem, 
now the city of Salem, Mass. He was admitted freeman, May 
18, 1631, at the same time with Roger Conant, and, in 1632, 
was a Deputy from Salem to the first General Court of the Mass- 
achusetts Bay Colony. In 1652, he removed to Reading, Mass., 
where he died September 15, 1663, "well stricken in years." 
The name of his wife, Edith, is not known. 

The exact date of Peter Aspinwall's death is not known, but 
it was between November 20, 1687, the date of his will, and 
December 9, 1687, the date of the inventory of his estate. The 
date of his widow's death has not been ascertained, but she was 
not living on April 1, 1701. 



20 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

The following is a copy of Peter Aspinwall's will, which was 
presented for probate by his widow and his eldest son, Samuel, 
on January 20, 1692 : 

"In the name of God, Amen, my soul I commit into the 
arms of Jesus Christ my Saviour, my body to be decently buried : 
after necessary expenses are defrayed, my just and lawfull debts 
satisfyed, my CvState divided in raanner following, my will is, 
that my beloved wife Remember Aspinwall be my executrix and 
that she shall have one third part of my whole estate with her 
choice of which part, to continue the time of her widowhood : if 
she change her condition, then to leave the houseing & land to 
my children, and the moveables to be at her disposing. 

2. That my eldest son Samll Aspinwall be my executor and 
that he have a double portion of my estate, if after division of 
my estate anything be put to sale, he to have the first refusall 
of it. 

3. That my second son Peter Aspinwall to keep what of 
my estate he has in hand, if it be more than his just proportion, 
not to return any back ; yet if he have not equal to ye rest of my 
children then to be made up out of my estate. 

4. That all the rest of my children, Nathaniel Aspinwall, 
Thomas Aspinwall, Joseph Aspinwall, Eleazar Aspinwall, 
Timothy Aspinwall, Mehetable Aspinwall, Elizabeth Aspinwall, 
Mary Aspinwall, that they have an equal proportion of my estate : 
In case any of those dy before they be of age to make a will, that 
then his or her proportion be divided equally among the rest. 
I do give power to my executrix and executor to call in any 
debt by bill or bond to improve for the good of the whole. Also 
that corne meat as provision for ye family for this yeare be not 
put into the estate but for the children's use. 

This is the last will and testament of Peter Aspinwall this 
20th of November one thousand six hundred eighty and seven ; 
as witness my hand and seale.

The fact that this will is signed by a mark does not mean 
that Peter Aspinwall was unable to write, but that he was too 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 21 

feeble to do so, and, as was common in those times, on such an 
'Occasion, he affixed his mark to his will. There is evidence that 
he was able to write. 

It will be noticed that one of the witnesses to this will was 
John Gove, who lived at Cambridge, Mass. This John Gove, 
as will be seen in the preceding chapter, was a son-in-law of 
William Aspinwall of Boston, and later, on August 28, 1704, 
when John Gove made his own will, he named Samuel, oldest 
son of Peter Aspinwall, one of the overseers of his estate. This 
strengthens the belief of a near relationship between William 
and Peter Aspinwall. The only evidence we have of Peter 
iVspinwall's age, is contained in a deposition made by him on 
October 8, 1664, in which he states that he is aged about 52 
years, so he was about 50 years old when he married Remember 
Palfrey, the mother of all of his children. No attempt has been 
made to trace his English ancestry, but should such an effort be 
made, a possible clue, inay be afforded through the will of James 
Clark of Boston, afterwards of Muddy River, dated September 
11, 1667, in which he names his cousin, Peter Aspinwall.

PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 23 



SECOND GENERATION. 



Samue?, eldest son and child of Peter' and Remember 
(Palfrey) Aspinwall, was born at Muddy River (Brookline), Mass., 
November 4, 1662. He was a farmer and a leading man in town 
affairs. He was elected Surveyor in 1690-1 ; was subsequently 
Constable, Assessor, Fence- Viewer, Tythingman and Selectman, 
holding the last named office for thirteen years between 1699 and 
1718. He was also elected to view the town treasurer's ac- 
counts ; to a committee to make a new pound ; to choose a bury- 
ing place ; to manage the concerns or affairs of building a 
meetinghouse; to seat the meeting house ; "to treat with Mr. 
James Allin who was chosen to be (our) gospel minister," and 
was appointed guardian to orphan minors, etc. 

He went as a lieutenant of militia in the expedition against 
Port Royal in the year 1690, and was present when Sir William 
Phips took the fort. He v/as subsequently Captain of the com- 
pany of militia at Brookline. Mr. Lewis Tappan, who was a 
son-in-law of Dr. William Aspinwall, the grandson of Samuel 
Aspinwall, in his diary, now in the possession of a descendant, 
Mr. Edward A. Bowen, of Brooklyn, N. Y., relates the following 
incidents : 

"Some one recollected, and told his grandson, Dr. William 
Aspinwall, of Capt. Samuel Aspinwall's notifying his company, 
on the public parade in Roxbury, to meet on a certain day to see 
about building a meeting house in Brookline. He made the 
bricks to fill in the old meeting house. When it was taken down, 
Dr. William Aspinwall purchased these bricks, and filled the 
walls of the west room of his new house with them. Capt. 
Aspinwall also built the school house which stood on Esq. 
Sharp's land, nearly opposite the present school house in the 
lane leading to the Cambridge road. He was of great strength. 
There is an anecdote related of him showing the presence and 
firmness of his mind. At a tavern on Boston Neck, there was a 



M PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

lion kept, which was tamed for exhibition. Some persons 
thought they might frighten Capt. Aspinwall with the 
animal. He had never seen a lion, and was conducted to his 
apartment, when at the management of his keeper, the animal 
sprang upon him, putting his fore paws upon his breast, making 
a tremendous roaring. Capt. Aspinwall merely said, ' what is 
the matter with the beast ?' " 

This lion was advertised for exhibition in The Boston News 
Letter in March and April, 1718, as follows: 

"All Persons having the Curiosity of seeing the noble and 
Royal Beast the Lyon, never one before in America, may see 
him at the House of Capt. Arthur Savage near Mr. Cohnans 
Church, Boston, before he is transported to London. But to pre- 
vent all disputes with the negro at the Gate who constantly 
attends each Person (whether seen him before or not) is desired 
to pay to the said Negro six pence a piece." 

A further extract from Lewis Tappan's diary states : 

" Capt. Aspinwall planted the great elm tree (Aspinwall 
elm). Samuel, the present deacon Clark's great-grandfather 
lived with him at the time, and saw him (S. A.) carry it in his 
hand and set it out. Clark was then about 10 years old." 

This magnificent elm tree, which overshadowed the old 
Aspinwall house at Brookline, stood until 1844, when nearly half 
of it fell, and, about 1870, the rest of it followed, breaking a 
hole through the roof of the house. It measured twenty feet in 
circumference near the surface of the ground, and sixteen feet 
and eight inches at five feet from the ground. The branches 
extended 104 feet from S. E. to N. W. In an address, by the 
Hon. Robert C. Winthrop, at the dedication of the Town Hall in 
Brookline, on February 22, 1873, he said: 

" And now we have a name as eminent for its worth, as it is 
first in alphabetical order. The sixth and seventh signers (to the 
petition for the formation of the town of Brookline in 1705, ed.) 
were Samuel and Eleazar Aspinwall. Capt. Samuel Aspinwall 
was born here in 1657 (1662, ed.), and, from that time to this, 
whether as hamlet, village, or town, Brookline has never been 
without a distinguished bearer of his name and blood. The old 
house built by his father, before 1666, is still standing, or at 
least trying to stand. Of the venerable elm, which overshadowed 
it certainly for more than a hundred and fifty years, if indeed it 
was not coeval with Columbus, nothing remains but the antique 
roots, and a few feet of massive but mutilated trunk. They are 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 25 

almost the last relics of the old Muddy River Hamlet, and I wish 
they could be enclosed and inscribed as a monument of the 
remote past. What an inspiring stump that would be for an 
open-air speech on some historical anniversary ! If nothing else 
can be done, I trust that enough of it may be secured as a desk 
for this very platform. If it were here at this moment, my 
manuscript would have a most congenial resting place, — more 
precious than the most skillful carving or veneering of Oak, or 
Maple, or Satin-Wood." 

Capt. Samuel Aspinwall married, about 1689, Sarah, the 
daughter of Capt. Timothy and Sarah (Davis) Stevens, of Rox- 
bjiry, Mass. She was born March 6, 1667, and died April 1, 1710. 
She was buried in the old Roxbury graveyard, near the graves 
of her parents. The celebrated Samuel Sewall, in his " letter- 
book", says: " My neighbor Mrs. Sarah Aspinwall, died April 
1, 1710. I being a bearer had given me a pair of wash leather 
gloves." 

Capt. Timothy Stevens was the son of John Stevens of New- 
bury, Mass. He married Sarah, daughter of Tobias Davis. 
John Stevens and wife Elizabeth came from England, to New- 
bury, Mass., in 1638. 

Capt. Samuel Aspinwall was drowned in the Cambridge 
River near Elliot's Island, September 6, 1727. At his family 
devotions that morning, he read the 27th chapter of Proverbs, 
beginning with, "Boast not thyself of to-morrow, for thou 
knowest not what a day may bring forth." The New England 
Weekly Journal of Boston, in its issue of September 11, 1727, 
contains the following from a correspondent in Brookline : — 

"On Wednesday last the 6th currant Capt. Samuel Aspinwall 
of this place and three others went out in a canoe to a place where 
they might gather oyster shells, and leaving the company was 
coming to the shore alone in the canoe, but meeting with a 
paddle that stuck up in the mud he attempted to draw the same 
out but finding it difficult the tyde being against him, and unawares 
pitched over the canoe in the water and was drowned. He was 
seen to rise once and no more and no help could be afforded him. 
* * * * They went to find him that night but could not. 
The next morning about 8 they found him not far from the place 
where he was drowned, and on Saturday he was decently 
interred. The Company he was late Captain of being in arms. 



26 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

He was a man well beloved among us and his death is much 
lamented by all that knew him." 

In the "letter-book" of Samuel Sewall, heretofore men- 
tioned, he says: — 

"Sept. 6, 1727. Capt. Samuel Aspinwall Drowned. See 
Journal No. 25. Sept. 9th. went to Brookline to his funeral. 
Bearers, Mr. Josiah Winchester, Deacon Mayo, Mr. Eraz. Drew,

Peter', son of Peter' and Remember (Palfrey) Aspinwall, 
was born at Muddy River, or Brookline, Mass., June 4, 1664. 
He " took hold of the Covenant 1684, 2 mo 5 day." 

The settlement of Woodstock, Ct., was made by residents 
of Roxbury, Mass. They secured the grant of a tract of land 
seven miles square, in what was called the " Nipmuck Country." 
About the first of April, 1686, they sent out thirteen pioneers in 
advance of the others, to break up land and make some prepara- 
tions for the main body of colonists. They are recorded in the 
first book of records of Roxbury as " the men who went to spy 
out Woodstock." One of these thirteen pioneers was Peter 
Aspinwall. At the settlement, on Saturday, August 28, 1686, 
at Woodstock, they drew lots, and Peter Aspinwall drew "20 
Acres, west side of the eastward vale, abutting east on highway." 
This eastward vale is now known as South Woodstock, Ct. In 1696, 
during the trouble with the Indians, a military company was 
formed at Woodstock, with Peter Aspinwall as lieutenant, and 
he took an active part in all the campaigns against the Indians, 
and was a prominent figure in all matters attending the early 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 27 

history of Woodstock. He was employed by the authorities to 
lay out a road to the Quimebaug, and, while thus engaged, he 
removed to the vicinity of the Great Falls. About 1703, he 
removed to a tract of land he had purchased at Aspinock, now 
Killingly, Ct., and devoted his energies to the settlement of that 
town. In 1713, Killingly sent him as the first representative of 
that town, to the General Assembly, of which he was also a 
member in 17U, 1716, 1719, 1720, 1721, 1722, 1723, 1727 and 
1728. He was a leading citizen of Killingly. In 1716, he was 
elected Justice of the Peace, and held other public offices. In 
1715, at the organization of the church at Killingly, he was 
chosen deacon. He also gave a plot of land for a burial ground. ^^ 

On March 24, 1699, he married, at Woodstock, Elizabeth, ._Z4.^i 
the widow of John Leavens of that place. Her maiden name 
has not been ascertained. 

In Dr. AVilliam Aspinwall's manuscript, heretofore men- 
tioned, he states : 

" Peter, the son of Peter, was settled at Woodstock and 
married a widow with a large number of children, her and her 
children was Levens they and she always kept him low ; he had 
by her one daughter and she married a Bateman and had a son 
and several daughters, said Peter was a meek sensible man and 
a Deacon." 

The date of death of Peter Aspinwall, and that of his wife, 
are unknown. The records of Windham County, Ct., show that 
he was alive on June 4, 1749, at which time he was 85 years old.

Nathanier, son of Peter' and Remember (Palfrey) Aspinwall, 
was born at Muddy River (Brookline), on June 5, 1666. In the 
year 1690, he and his younger brother, Thomas, under their 
neighbor. Captain Andrew Gardner, went on the expedition of 
Sir William Phips against Canada, in which Thomas, as well as 
his commander, perished. After his return, Nathaniel followed 
his brother Peter to Woodstock, Ct. In 1699, in connection 



28 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

with his brother, Samuel Perrin and Benjamin Griggs, he pur- 
chased of Rev. Noahdiah Russell, two hundred acres of land, 
"east side of Quimebaug, alias Aspinock River, according to 
the Indian name," for twenty pounds. He did not remove there, 
however, but continued to reside at Woodstock. He served 
several terms as a selectman at Woodstock, between 170-i and 
1709. Dr. William Aspinwall, writing in 1767, says of him, 
"he was a very careful, sober, good Christian, an Israelite 
indeed." 

He was married at Woodstock by the Rev. Nehemiah 
Walter, on November 11, 1698, to Abigail, daughter of Henry 
and Elizabeth (Johnson) Bowen. She was born in Roxbury, 
Mass., and was baptized August 21, 1670. 

Lieut. Henry Bowen was the son of Griffith' Bowen. He 
married Elizabeth, daughter of Capt. Isaac and Elizabeth (Porter) 
Johnson, of Roxbury. 

Griffith Bowen, son of Francis Bowen of Llangenwydd, Co, 
Glamorgan, Wales, with wife, Margaret, daughter of Henry 
Fleming, came to New England in 1638, and were of 
Boston, where he was made a freeman May 22, 1639. He 
returned to England with his wife and several of his children in 
1649. 

Nathaniel Aspinwall died between February 15, 1712, the 
date of his will at Woodstock, and June 4, 17J 3, the date when 
it was proved at Boston. His widow died at Woodstock, April 
16, 1736.

EleazarS son of Peter' and Remember (Palfrey) Aspinwall, 
was born October 9, 1673, at Muddy River (Brookline), Mass. 
He lived for some time, at Brookline, on the farm of Capt. Robert 
Sharpe, and was also engaged in the manufacture of bricks. In 
1701, he was living in Cambridge, and not long afterwards in 
Roxbury. While making bricks at Muddy River, in 1701, he 
went to law over the delivery of some bricks, the defendant set- 
ting up the claim that they were of inferior quality, and declined 
to pay for them. It is not of record how this suit terminated. 

In 1720, he removed to the town of Wallingford, Ct., where 
he took charge of a farm belonging to Gov. Belcher of Massachu- 
setts. This farm was situated half-way between Hartford and New 
Haven, where is now the city of Meriden. The place was called 
the " Stone half-way house." He subsequently removed to the 
adjoining town of Farmington (Kensington Parish), where he 
died in the year 1742. In the sketch written by Dr. William 
Aspinwall (1767), he says of Eleazar Aspinwall: — 

" He was a passionate man, a hard laborer, apparently relig- 
ious, but wilful, and too much governed by a bad wife ; a strong 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. ' 31 

man at argument. He died in the field with his hoe in his 
hand." 

Administration on his estate was granted to Alary and Aaron 
Aspinwall, his widow and son, July 6, 1742. It was appraised 
July 2, 17J:2, and amounted to more than seven hundred pounds. 
According to the probate records, his property was divided among 
his children, Aaron, who had a double portion, Mary Adkins, 
Hamatter, and Anna Nott. This is clearly a mistake as far as a 
child Hamatter is concerned, and no doubt the daughter Huldah 
Cotton was meant. This is evidenced by the fact that soon after 
said settlement of the estate, Mary Adkins, Anna Nott and Hul- 
dah Cotton executed a quit-claim deed, in which they say, 
"to onr on/y and well beloved brother Aaron Aspinwall," and 
the deed was for "the lands that our honored father Elizer 
Aspinwall /e-/^ dii'ideable amongst us.' Also, in 1739, Eleazar 
Aspinwall deeded land to his only son Aaron. 

He married, at Roxbury, Mass., date unknown, Mary 

The date of her death has not been ascertained.

Joseph', vSon of Peter' and Remember (Palfrey) Aspinwall, 
and twin brother of Eleazar (No. 8), was born at Muddy River 
(Brookline), Mass., October 9, 1673. Before he was of age, he 
went to sea, and finally commanded a vessel of his own. Dr. 
William Aspinwall, in the sketch written in 1767, which has 
been several times heretofore quoted, says of him : 

" Joseph the son of Peter went to sea before he was of age, 
and at last married at New York, had a vessell of his own and 
was taken several times and once carried into Port Royal when 
his brother Samuel was in the army besieging and once to 
France. He was burnt out at Seabrook in the winter where he 
kept shop. He was put in jail for debt and again went to the sea 
to the West Indies where he was made Lieutenant of the Oueen

of Spain which was in a negro trade from Jamaica to Carthagena 
and Porto Bello. He married a niece of Lord B llomont. He lived 
with her while he was in the office of Lieutenant but she died and he 
came home master of a large ship consigned to Mr. Farweather ; 
he went off with the vessel again, was put out of business and 
in about 2 years returned to Brookline to the Farm which 
belonged to Thomas Aspinwall son of Samuel, son of Peter where 
he lived many years and there married the widow of Samuel 
Smith the brother of Nat Smith the miser ; he lived with her 5 
or 6 years and then died about 70 years of age. Before he was 
married he lived in Little Cambridge in the house belonging to 
Mr. Larned nigh Cunningham's country seat. He was of a mid- 
dling stature, well proportioned and very genteel and something 
handsome ; he was very passionate very gay, facetious, good 
company and always loose and exceedingly careless of his own 
and children's affairs." 

To the foregoing general sketch of Joseph Aspinwall's life 
are added the following details, which are all that have been 
ascertained concerning him : 

As early as the year 1700, probably some time before, he 
lived in New York City, and so continued until 1711, when he 
removed to Saybrook, Ct., where he kept a store and also com- 
manded a sloop out of that port called the "Joseph Burthen." 
He was made a freeman of the City of New York, June 6, 1710. 
May 1, 1711, he subscribed one pound, two shillings, towards 
finishing the steeple of Trinity Church, New York. In Decem- 
ber, 1711, while living at Saybrook, he was allowed by the Con- 
necticut Assembly the sum of nineteen pounds, eleven shillings, 
and sixpence for the charges of Capt. Crane's funeral. In Octo- 
ber, 1712, he petitioned the Connecticut Assembly, praying for 
an allowance "for a considerable sum in publick bills of credit 
of this Colony lost by fire sometime in Winter last past at 
Wethersfield where he then sojourned." 

He was burned out at Saybrook, and, about 1713-14, he 
removed to Dedham, Mass. In 1714, he was imprisoned for 
a debt of one hundred and twenty-eight pounds, four shillings 
and fourpence, due Philip Hedman of Boston, merchant. His 
release was ordered by the Court of General Sessions at Boston, 
after he had " declared upon his oath what effects were belong- 
ing to him." 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 33 

How long he lived in Dedham is not known. His first wife 
probably died while he was living there, and he went to sea 
again. In 1724, while of Dedham, he bought 84 acres of land, 
in Killingly, Ct. , of his brother Peter, but sold it back to him in 
1728. There is no evidence that he ever lived on it. 

December 5, 1729, an attachment was issued against the 
estate of Joseph Aspinwall, " late of Saybrook in our Colony of 
Connecticnt, now residing in Boston, mariner, for six hundred 
pounds, to answer to Magdalen Hickells of Elizabethtown, 
N. J." The jury found for the defendant. 

September 1, 1740, he petitioned the General Court of Mass- 
achusetts renewing his offer to go as a pilot for the Spanish 
coasts. 

The exact date of his death is not known. Dr. William 
Aspinwall wrote that he died at the age of about 70 years. 

If Dr. Aspinwall's account is correct, then Joseph Aspinwall 
was three times married. 

He married, first at New York City, in 1700, Hannah, daugh- 
ter of Christopher and Hannah Deane. The license for this 
marriage was granted on June 6, 1700. 

Christopher Deane, of New York City, in his will, proved 
May 9, 1692, names wife Hannah, mother-in-law Ruth Simms, 
son John, and wife's son Adam Wallis. Names also daughter 
Hannah, not then of age. No further account has been secured 
of him. 

The date of Hannah Aspinwall's death is not known, but 
she was living May 1, 1712, for, on that date, Joseph Aspinwall 
and Hannah, his wife, gave their bond for seventy-six pounds, 
two shillings and three pence, to Benjamin D'harricotte, mer- 
chant, of New York, to secure the payment of thirty-eight 
pounds, one shilling and one and one-half pence. 

He next married, according to the account of Dr. William 
Aspinwall, a niece of Lord Bellomont, governor of the Massa- 
chusetts Bay Colony. This was probably while he lived at 
Dedham, and about the time he went to sea again. From Dr. 
William Aspinwall's account, she probably died abroad, perhaps 
in the West Indies. The name of this wife has not been ascer- 
tained. Some five or six years before his death, he married, at 

[3]

Brookline, the widow of Samuel Smith of that place. vShe prob- 
ably survived him. 

As to the children of Joseph Aspinwall, the compiler of this 
work has been unable to find but two, Joseph and John, although 
there may have been others. These children were by his first 
wife, Hannah Deane. 

It is proper to give here the reasons for asserting that 
Joseph^ of Dedham, and John^ of New York City, were the sons 
of Joseph Aspinwall and Hannah Deane. As to Joseph', of 
Dedham (No. 38), we know that Joseph' Aspinwall removed from 
Saybrook to Dedham, and lived there for a number of years 
before he went to sea again, and, in 1729, Joseph' (No. 38), 
Aspinwall appears on the records at Dedham. No other Aspin- 
wall family was in that locality at that period, and there can be 
no doubt, from name, localit3% tradition of descendants, religious 
persuasion (both being Episcopalians), etc., that Joseph' (No. 38), 
was the son of Joseph and Hannah (Deane) Aspinwall. As to 
John' (No. 39), Dr. William Aspinwall, in his sketch, says, "the 
New York Aspinwalls proceeded from Samuel Aspinwall's 
brother Joseph." But we have still further proof. The late 
L. M. Sargent, of Boston, who published in the Boston Tran- 
script a series of articles on the celebrated Dr. William Aspin- 
wall, and who had gone over the latter's papers and correspond- 
ence, states : 

" He seems to have found a kind friend and efficient advo- 
cate in his relative Mr. John Aspinwall of Flushing (No. 39), 
whom about this time (1768) he happened to meet at New Haven, 
and who had no difficulty in appreciating the merits of his young 
kinsman." 

Soon afterwards, John Aspinwall wrote from Flushing to 
his cousin Thomas at Brookline : 

"I had the pleasure of seeing one of your sons at New 

Haven in August last, which gave me great satisfaction. He 

informed me of the welfare of your family, and acquainted 

me that he was studying physic with Dr. Gale of Killingworth. 
* * * * * 

On June 7, 1769, Dr. William Aspinwall, when returning 
home from Philadelphia, paid a brief visit to John Aspinwall at 
Flushing, who on that day addressed a letter to Thomas, Dr. 
William's father, in which he says, " I have now the pleasure of 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 35 

writing you, by your dear son, who returned from Philadelphia 
to my house yesterday. * ^ ■» * * I have, agreeably to 
your request, supplied him with the money you desired, and I 
believe he has been frugal and careful." 

This establishes the relationship between the Brookline 
family and John Aspinwall (No. 39), of New York and Flushing. 
Descendants of Joseph (No. 38), also state that their ancestor's 
brother, John, went when a young man from Dedham to New 
York. 

Of the two sons, Joseph was probably the elder, as John 
was born not earlier than 1705, and Joseph was married in 1728.

place. He was born at Dedham, September 15, 1673, and was 
the son of John and Abigail (Fisher) Baker of Dedham, and John 
was the son of Edward Baker, who came from England to Lynn,

THIRD GENERATION. 



14. 

Elizabeth', daughter of Samuel' (Peter'), and Sarah (Stevens) 
Aspinwall, was born March 25, 1693. She married Peter Gard- 
ner of Muddy River (Brookline). 

"They lived where Capt. Gridley had his country seat. She 
died at the birth of her only child about seven months after she 
was married. Her child was Nathaniel, who died in the nine- 
teenth year of his age, of a consumption. He was a very sober 
young man." (Dr. William Aspinwall, 1767). 

Children : 
44, NATHANIELS b. ; d. in his 19th year. 



15. 

Samuer, son of Samuel' (Peter'), and Sarah (Stevens) Aspin- 
wall, was born February 13, 1696. He was educated at Harvard 
College, and was designed for the ministry, but being of a weak 
constitution, abandoned the idea, and died of consumption, 
August 13, 1732. The following is taken from the New England 
Weekly Journal, Boston, of the issue of Monday, September 11, 
1732: 
"Brookline, 21" August. 

On the 13th inst died here Mr. Samuel' Aspinwall of this 
town in the 37 year of his age after between six and seven years 
sickness. He commenced Master of Arts in Cambridge in 1717 
and was designed for the ministry, but discouraged by his 
inward weakness, which after he had for some little time settled 
here, so advanced as to take him off from business, and at. length 
proved fatal. He was a gentleman of bright parts, natural and 
acquired, a strong memory, quick wit and solid judgment ; pleas- 
ant in his conversation, a steady friend and a good Christian." 

A sermon was preached by Rev. James Allin, pastor of the 
church at Brookline, and dedicated to Mr. Thomas AspinwalU 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 37 

brother of the deceased. The text was from Psalms, 102, 11-12; 
subject, " The Eternity of God and the Short Life of Man con- 
sidered." 

Samuel Aspinwall never married. His will was dated 
August 10, 1732, and appointed his brother Thomas sole execu- 
tor. He bequeathed seventy pounds to each of his three sisters, 
Mary Gardner, ]Mehitable Craft and Sarah Aspinwall; " also to 
pay unto Nathaniel Gardner, son of my late sister, Elizabeth 
Gardner, thirty-five pounds when he comes of age. I also give 
to my Aunt Pain of Boston, £?> and to my Aunt Mehitabel 
Aspinwall 40 shs a year during her life." The Aunt Pain must 
have been an aunt on the side of his mother. 



16. 

Thomas', son of Samue? (Peter') and Sarah (Stevens) Aspin- 
wall, was born at Brookline, May 21, 1698. He was a farmer, 
" and something of a carpenter." He lived and died m the 
house built by his grandfather, Peter Aspinwall. In 1750, he 
built a house near his own for his son Samuel. He was a Lieu- 
tenant in the company of militia commanded by his father. He 
held various offices. Was hogreave, 1722 ; selectman for ten 
years between 1737 and 1758 ; constable, fence viewer, surveyor, 
assessor and warden. Was chosen by the town to serve as jury- 
man to the Superior Court, also to view the town treasurer's 
reports, and on a committee to supply the pulpit. He died at 
Brookline, June 1, 1774, of consumption. He married. May 16, 
1728, Joanna, daughter of Capt. Caleb and Abiel (Phipps) Gard- 
ner. She was born May 27, 1712, and died November 22, 1772. 
Capt. Caleb Gardner, born April 23, 1682, was the son of Thomas 
and Mary (Bowles) Gardner. Thomas Gardner, b. May 25, 1645,

Gardner, Sr., born in England, was the son of Thomas' Gard- 
ner, who came from England in the ship " Safety," in 1635.

date the church records at Killingly give the marriage of Deacon 
Eleazar Bateman to Mrs. Hannah Cutler. In Dr. William Aspin- 
wall's sketch (1767), he says that Mary, the daughter of Peter, 
had one son and several daughters. I have found recorded,

Nathaniels son of Nathaniel' (Peter') and Abigail (Bowen) 
Aspinwall, was born at Woodstock, Ct., September 7, 1709. He 
lived at West Woodstock, Ct., and attended the church in the 
West Parish. The following is taken from the church records: 

" At a chh meeting held at ye meeting house by adjourn- 
ment Tuesday Jan. 25, 1743, the meeting being opsnd with 
prayr, the pastor communicated to the chh in writing the report 
of a com*^® appointed to discourse with some members who had 
repeatedly absented from the Lord's Supper administered in the 
chh ; this being done Nath^i Aspenwall Delivered to the Chh in 
writing the reason of his absenting as afore^^i, the substance of 
whh was yt the Pastor had charged him with Lying and yt with* 
any known provocation, upon whh s^ Aspenwall was asked 
whether he meant s"^ reason as a Charge against ye Pastor. 
S^ Aspenwall answered he did not mean it as a charge, after 
much discourse upon the affair the Chh chose not to pass any 
vote in ye matter at present but advised the Pastor and s^ Aspen- 
wall to Discourse with Mr. Mosely in order and accommodation 
and healing the difference." 

Also the following : 

" At a Chh meeting held at ye meeting house April 29, 1743, 
The following votes were pass'^ — 



44 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

(1) That altho we Judge ye reason given by Nath^^ Aspen- 
wall is not sufficient to Justifie his past absenting from Commu- 
nion, yet being willing to extend Charity as to his Design therein, 
and upon his having desired to return to our Communion pro- 
fessing Charity with this Chh both pastor and members, we 
accept him, trusting for the future he will not act unbecoming a 
member of this Chh. * * * * " 

Nathaniel Aspinwall removed to Canterbury, Ct., prior to 
1761. About that year, he bought a tract of land at Lake vSara- 
toga, N. Y., from a royal agent, "on receipt of a peppercorn 
on the feast of S* Michael every year for 10 years, the clearing of 
several acres and then full possession." He did not, however, 
remove to that place. His farm in Canterbury was called the 
Peagscomsuck place. Nathaniel Aspinwall changed the spelling 
of his name to Aspinwall, and his descendants have always 
spelled the name in that way. He died at Canterbury, October 
12, 1777. 

He married, first, in Woodstock, date unknown, Mary Ham- 
mond. Her parentage has not been ascertained, nor the date of 
her death. He married, second, November 10, 1737, Mary, 
daughter of William and Elizabeth (Spalding) Derby. She was

Joseph', son of JosepV (Peter') and Hannah (Deane) Aspin- 
wall, was born between 1701 and 1705, probably in New York 
City, where his parents then resided. Removed with his parents

John', son of Joseph' (Peter') and Hannah (Deane) Aspin- 
wall, was born probably in New York City, in 1705 or 1706. He 
went with his parents to Saybrook, Ct., and thence to Dedham, 
Mass. When a young man, he returned to New York and set- 
tled there. He went to sea and became a captain of vessels out 
of the port of New York. He was also a merchant in that city. 
He amassed quite a fortune, and retired to his country seat at 
Flushing, on Long Island. On October 8, 1735, he was elected 
an alderman in New York City. He was one of the founders of 
the New York (Society) Library, in 1753. From 1756 to 1760, he 
was a vestryman of Trinity Church. Was made a member of the 
Marine Society, April 12, 1772. 

He married, August 28, 1728, Sarah', daughter of Capt. 
James' and Sarah (Cornell) Sands of Oyster Bay, L L She died 
December 4, 1765, in the 57th year of her age. From the New 
York Gazette, of December 12, 1765, is taken the following: 



48 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

" Wednesday evening the 4th inst departed this life in the 
57th year of her age, Mrs. Sarah Aspinwall, and was decently 
interred in the family vault. Her summons into eternity was 
extremely sudden, but she received it with that fortitude and 
resignation peculiar to the Christian character. Her family, 
friends and acquaintance, in her death sustain a very great loss, 
and can only comfort themselves under the dispensation by the 
evidence of her faith and piety, which she has left behind her." 

Capt. James' Sands, born in 1662, was the son of James' 
Sands and Sarah Walker. He married Mary, daughter of John 
Cornell. 

James' Sands, Sr., born in 1622, at Reading, Eng., was of 
Portsmouth, R. I., in 1643, afterwards of Taunton, Mass., and 
then of Block Island. 

John Aspinwall married, second, at Stamford, Ct., June 5, 
1766, Rebecca*, daughter of William Henry' and Margaret 
(Lloyd) Smith. She died at Flushing, November 25, 1809, aged 
74 years. 

William Henry' Smith was born October 29, 1708, and was 
the son of Henry' Smith. He married Margaret, daughter of 
Henry Lloyd. 

Henry* Smith, born January 19, 1679, at Tangiers, Africa, 
was the son of Col. William Smith. He married, January 1, 
1705, Anna, daughter of Rev. Thomas Shepherd of Charlestown, 
Mass. 

Col. William' Smith was born in Northamptonshire, Eng., 
February 2, 1655. Was a Colonel in the Royal Army, and was 
Governor of Algiers. Came to New York in 1686 and settled 
there. Was Chief Justice of the Province of New York. He 
married, at Tangiers, Africa, November 26, 1675, Martha, daugh- 
ter of Henry Tunstall. 

John Aspinwall died in New York, July 5, 1774. 

As to the children of John Aspinwall, an explanation is 
here necessary. It is probable that he had but one child, Han- 
nah, by his first wife. From his will, dated November 13, 1768, 
and two codicils thereto, dated February 26, 1770, and July 4, 
1772, and from the will of his widow, dated January 25, 1807, 
we can pretty nearly determine that all of the other children were 
by the second wife. In his will, dated November 13, 1768, two 
and one-half years after his second marriage, the only children 
named by him are Hannah, John Lloyd, William Smith and Gil- 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 49 

bert. Hannah, we know, was the child of his first wife, and 
Gilbert, we know, was the child of the second wife. Lloyd was 
the maiden name of the second wife's mother, and William Smith 
was the name of one of her brothers, so these two children were, 
undoubtedly, the issue of his second wife. Sarah is named in 
the first codicil, as being then about one month old, and in the 
second codicil provision is made for an expected child. This 
must have been Margaret, as such a child is named in the widow's 
will. John was born a fev/ months before his father's death. 
John Lloyd is not mentioned in the widow's will, and, presum- 
ably, died young. If, as has been pointed out, John Lloyd and 
AVilliam Smith were the children of the second wife, then they 
must have been twin children. A daughter of John Aspinwall 
married Abijah Hammond. This must have been Margaret, 
unless there was another daughter by the first wife, unmentioned 
in his will. If it was Margaret, such marriage took place after 
the date of her mother's will, as she was then single, Sarah, then 
having been the wife of Richard Piatt.

" This may certify that Mr. William Aspinwall has attended 
with uncommon diligence, my course of lectures on anatomy and 
surgery, also my course of midwifery, which added to his close 
attention to all the other medical lectures, and to the practice of 
the Pennsylvania Hospital, has amply fitted him to practice 
physic, surgery and midwifery with credit and reputation. I can 
with pleasure add, that he promises fair, by his irreproachable 
conduct, since his arrival in Philadelphia, to be in every other 
respect, a useful and agreeable member of society. 
Philadelphia, 27 May 1769." 

Dr. Aspinwall commenced the practice of medicine at Brook- 
line, and, continuing in practice there, became quite famous 
as a physician. He was an active participant in the Revolu- 



54 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

tionary War, and was in the battle of Lexington. He applied 
for a commission in the army, but, by the advice of his friend, 
Dr. Joseph Warren, he finally decided to serve in the Medical 
Department. He received the appointment of Surgeon in Gen. 
Heath's Brigade, and not long afterwards that of Deputy Direc- 
tor of the hospital at Jamaica Plains. His appointment as vSur- 
geon of the hospital at Roxbury, by the Congress of the Colony 
of Massachusetts, is signed by James Warren, President, and is 
dated at Watertown, 28 June, 1T75. He was Surgeon of the 
" American Hospital " in August of that year. In 1778, he was 
with the army under Gen. Sullivan, in Rhode Island. 

After the close of the war, he established, on his own premises, 
a hospital for the treatment of small-pox, and was very successful. 
His treatment was by inoculation with the virus of the real small- 
pox. When the new method of vaccination was introduced, he 
adopted it with much loss to himself, and in less than two years 
took down his hospital. 

Besides fulfilling the duties of his large practice. Dr. Aspin- 
wall was active in public affairs, and held many public ofiices. 
He was town treasurer from 1783 to 1790 ; warden in 1779 ; 
surveyor in 1802 and 1811 ; representative in 1790, 1791, and 
from 1795 to 1799; State Senator in 1800, 1801 and 1802. He 
and Col. Isaac S. Gardner were chosen a committee to arrange 
the procession to march and assemble at the meeting house on 
February 22, 1800, " to testify their respect for the memory of 
the late General George Washington." October <>, 1797, he sub- 
scribed the sum of $3,000 as a fund for the support of the County 
Academy. 

In early life, he lost the sight of one eye, and in his old age 
became totally blind. When a young man, in 1767, he wrote a 
sketch of the early generations of the Aspinwall family, extracts 
from which have been quoted in this work. 

Dr. Aspinwall married, June 26, 1776, Susanna Gardner. 
She was born February 28, 1754; died June 2, 1814. They first 
went to housekeeping in the house built by his father for his 
brother vSamuel. They lived there eleven years, and all of their 
children were born there except Susanna and Augustus, who 
were born in the old homestead. Dr. Aspinwall then built a 



PETER ASPIXWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 55 

house on Gardner Road, Aspinwall Hill, and dwelt there the 
remainder of his life. 

Dr. Aspinwall's portrait was painted by the celebrated artist, 
Gilbert Stuart, upon the order of his son-in-law, Lewis Tappan, 
and it is related that this portrait bore such a striking resem- 
blance to George Washington, that at the time of the anti-slavery 
riots in New York City, when the house of Lewis Tappan in 
Rose Street, was mobbed (he being a noted abolitionist), and its 
furniture burned in the street, this picture remained untouched, 
the rioters believing it to be a portrait of Washington.

Nathaniel", son of Peter' (Nathanie?, Peter') and Rebecca 
(Storrs) Aspinwall, was born in Mansfield, Ct., November 18, 
1740; died in New Haven, Ct., in the year 1800. He early 
engaged in silk culture in Connecticut, and is said to have been 
instrumental in establishing that industry in said state. In a 
memorial history of Hartford County, Ct., it is stated that, 
"President Styles of Yale College and Nathaniel Aspinwall of 
Mansfield are credited with having established the silk industry. 
Mr. Aspinwall brought from Long Island the white mulberry to 
the town of Mansfield. In 1789, Pres. Styles wore at Com- 
mencement a gown made of Connecticut silk." It is said that 
Nathaniel Aspinwall had a nursery of mulberry trees on Long 
Island, and began about 1760 to introduce silk culture into 
Windham County and other localities in Connecticut. He planted 
orchards of the trees at New Haven and other places, and laid 
the foundation in Mansfield of an industry that lasted for 
seventy-five years, and paved the way for the present silk manu- 
facture in this country. 

He settled at New Haven, date unknown, and died there in 
1800. His estate was inventoried there October 4, 1800. He 
married, perhaps, at Mansfield, date unknown, Polly (prob- 
ably Fenton). After his death, she married Clark Sibley, and 
died between February 10 and July 18, 1803, as shown by the 
Probate Records at New Haven.

99. 

Zalmon*, son of Peter' (Natlianier, Peter') and Rebecca 
(Storrs) Aspinwall, was born at Mansfield, Ct., February 15, 
1742, and died at Lebanon, N, H., August 11, 1821. Soon after 
attaining- his majority, he removed to Lebanon, N. H., and was 
one of the first settlers of that town. He cleared a farm 
there, which he cultivated and improved, and also carried 
on the saddlery and harness-making business. In the 
early days when the " Aspinwall Hill," in Lebanon, was 
the capital of the town, the "Freemen's Meetings" were 
occasionally held at his dwelling, and he was often elected 
moderator. He was a man running over with frolic and 
fun, often playing tricks upon his neighbors, and that disposition 
lasted during his old age. He could imitate the cry of nearly 
all the wild animals of the forest, and many amusing anecdotes 
are related of the tricks played by him with this gift. He was 
also a trapper, and did quite a business in that line. At one 
time, he had a line of traps from Lebanon through Enfield, 
Hanover and Lyme, which he often visited through the fur 
season, and caught a great many of the American sable. He 
served, during the Revolutionary War, in Col. Jonathan Chase's 
New Hampshire Regiment. He married, April 17, 1782, Han- 
nah Conant. She was born January 2, 1756; died March 13, 1823.

101. 

Eleazar', son of Peter' (Nathaniel', Peter') and Rebecca 
(Storrs) Aspinwall, was born in Mansfield, Ct., February 10, 
1745. There is no further account of him on the Mansfield, Ct., 
records, but he was living April 30, 1781, the date of his father's 
will. Some time during the Revolutionary War, he probably 
removed to the State of New York, for he served for a time dur- 
ing that war in Col. Van Rensselaer's Regiment of New York 
troops. No record of his marriage, nor any further trace of 
him has been found, but an Abel Aspinwall, who was unques- 
tionably his son, was living at Lisle, Broome County, N. Y., in 
1810, so it is probable that Eleazar Aspinwall located in that 
part of the State. No trace of any other child than Abel has 
been discovered.

102. 

Abel*, son of Peter' (Nathanie?, Peter') and Rebecca (Storrs) 
Aspinwall, was born at Mansfield, Ct., November 19, 1746; died 
in 1807. He settled first in Western Connecticut. In April, 
1788, he was of the town of Waterbury, at which time he pur- 
chased a half acre of land, with the buildings thereon, situated 
in the township of Waterbury, at a place called Quassapague. 
In 1790, he was one of the signers for a society, afterwards called 
Middlebury, Ct. In June, 1800, he was of Washington, Conn., 
as appears from the New Haven court deeds. He appears to 
have been engaged in the industry of planting the mulberry 
tree for the silk culture, as was his elder brother Nathaniel, and

it is probable that he had previously lived at New Haven. He 
subsequently removed to Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y., 
where administration was granted on his estate, September 30, 
1807. He served, during" the Revolutionary War, in the com- 
pany of Capt. Benjamin Clark, in Col. Obadiah Johnson's regi-

married, second, at New Haven, Ct.,May27, 1784, Mrs. Wealthy 
Thompson, a widow. She died, probably, in 1821, as the inven- 
tory of her estate was filed June 28, 1821. Her will was dated 
February 20, 1811. In the settlement of her estate, she is de- 
scribed as of Mansfield, Ct., and Thompson, Sullivan Co., N. Y.

Elizabeth', daughter of Nathaniel' (Nathanie?, Peter') and 
Mary (Derby) Aspinwall, was born in Woodstock, Ct., April 13, 
1747; died in Canterbury, Ct., February 12, 1769. She married 
a Capt. Boswell of Canterbury. No record of any children has 
been found, and, as she died at an early age, it is probable that 
she had none. 



112. 

William', son of Nathaniel' (Nathanie?, Peter') and Mary 
(Derby) Aspinwall, was born in Woodstock, Ct., June 10, 1749; 
died in Canterbury, Ct., August 24, 1816. When a young man, 
he was employed to manage a large plantation on Long Island, 
and while there he married, January 15, 1774, Mary Shaw. She 
was of a loyalist family, which, during the Revolutionary War, 
took refuge in Nova Scotia. Soon after his marriage, he went 
to Saratoga County, N. Y., to take charge of the large tract of 
land there belonging to his father. In 1775, while living there, 
a horseman came riding up one day at full speed and told him 
that hostile Indians from Canada were within two hours reach of 
them, and that they must fly for their lives. Loading what 
household goods he could into his wagon, he drove with his wife 
and infant son to the nearest settlement, twelve miles away. 
The following day, with some men from this settlement, he went 
back to his place and found it in ashes. He soon afterwards 
returned to his father's in Canterbury, and settled on the old 
home place, and there remained the rest of his life. His widow 
died January 15, 1818, aged 69 years.

September 13, 1773, Zerviah Cady. Prior to the Revolutionary 



PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 67 

War, he bought land in Stillwater, then in Saratoga County, 
N. Y., but apparently did not remove there at that time, for, in 
1775, he was in the military service from Norfolk, Conn., for 
five days, at the time of the Lexington Alarm, and, on March 15, 
1777, he enlisted in the company of Capt. Watson, 7 " Connecti- 
cut Line, and served until March 15, 1780. In 1787, he is 
described on the land records at Norfolk, Ct., as of Stillwater, 
and it is presumed that he removed there after the close of 
the Revolutionary War. No further trace of him has been 
found, nor of any descendants, and it is believed, therefore, that 
he had no other children than those described below, whose 
deaths are given in the Norfolk, Ct., records.

119. 

Aaron", son of Aaron' (Eleazar^ Peter') and Sarah (Collins) 
Aspinwall, was born in Farmington, Ct., October 6, 1743. He 
removed to Norfolk, Ct., with his parents, in 1758, and, on 
March 10, 1777, he enlisted for three years in Capt. Watson's 
Company of the 7" Connecticut Line, his brother Caleb being 
in the same company. He was honorably discharged March 10, 
1780. After the close of the Revolutionary War, he removed to 
Stillwater, then in Saratoga Co., N. Y., where he lived for a 
number of years, but subsequently removed to Genoa, Cayuga 
Co., N. Y., where he died May 1, 1834. He married prior to 
his removal from Norfolk, Ct., but the name of his wife has not 
been ascertained, nor the date of his marriage. 

As to his children, the sons given below are the only ones of 
whom any account has been found, although he certainly had at 
least one other child. This is proved by the fact that, in his 
declaration for a pension, executed July 6, 1820, he states that 
his family then consisted of his wife, aged 72 years, and a grand- 
son, 10 years old, named Aaron. This grandson was not the 
child of either of the sons named below, and must have been the 
child of another son or daughter, who had, no doubt, died leav- 
ing this child to the care of his grandparents. A tradition in this 
family is that there were also sons Matthew and Caleb, but, if 
so, no descendant has been found of either. The elder son, 
John, was born at Norfolk, Ct.

Mass.. October 4, 1796; married, in England, September 4, 1824, 
Julia Backope. She was born February 11, ISOO; died January 
8, 1875. He died in Birmingham, Eng., July 24, 1886. 

The following article, published shortly after his death, will 
be of interest : 

" Samuel Aspinwall Goddard, who recently died at his home 
at Little Aston, near Birminghain, Eng., deserves to be always 
remembered by his native country, the United States, for it was 
once his fortune to prove that an American living abroad may be 
as good a patriot as one at home, and may do the most impor- 
tant patriotic service. Mr. Goddard was born at Brookline in 
this State (Massachusetts), in 1796, with the blood of two noted 
New England families uniting in his veins. He was engaged in 
the iron trade and transferred his home and business to Birming- 
ham, Eng., years before the rebellion. When that broke 
out, Mr. Goddard began the task of correcting the ignorant and 
injurious attitude of the British toward our country, by 
thoroughly setting before them the facts of the situation, the 
character of our institutions, and the proof that the North was 
obeying the highest principles, and the truest patriotism in put- 
ting down the rebellion. He did this through communications 
in the Birmingham Daily Post concerning every issue and event 
of the war, which was continued through the whole period, making 
a body of writing as great as if he had been the editor of a leading 
daily at home, and of much more importance, since it was put 
forth where it was most needed. The Birmingham Post, by his 
work, produced a great effect in enlightening the British people, 
and the New York Chamber of Commerce did well to pass a 
grateful resolution to him. Mr. Goddard was an abolitionist, a 
scholar in political economy and a man of letters. He retained 
his bodily and mental vigor until shortly before his death."

148 PETER ASPINWALL AND DESCENDANTS. 

age of seven years. He went from Saratoga County to Chautau- 
qua Co., N. Y., and while living there attended school for one 
term only. Aside from this, his education was gained by study 
around the fire-place at night, or at such hours as could be spared 
from his work during the day. In this manner he mastered the ele- 
mentary studies of that early period, and in subsequent years was 
a man well informed upon all the subjects of his time. In 1846, 
he removed to Freeport, Stephenson Co., 111., his earthly pos- 
sessions at that time consisting of his wife, three children, a span 
of horses and wagon, and six hundred dollars in money. He 
was a farmer, and at the time of his death, March 30, 1889, at 
the age of nearly 82 years, he was among the wealthy men of 
his community. On March 1, 1835, he married Lucy, daughter 
of Ebenezer H. and Rhoda (Sumner) Shumway. She was born 
May 28, 1813, and died December 29, 1883. Both of them united 
early with the Baptist Church, with which they remained con- 
nected all their lives.
