The Great Adventure 

Oh England. Mother Country of us all I W In did \our leaders emasculate 
your sons and daughters hcckoiicd li\ religious Ireedomy ^ our innumerable 
encounters with all Kuro|)faii races. Komans. Danes, and Scots; cruelties 
inflictetl. by self-appointed rulti>. upon high and low who crossed their 
paths: fanaticisms and religious |)lagues to suit the immoralities of \our 
ungodlike rulers: all these op|)ressed \oui' wmlln sons while accomplishing 
little to bring ahoiil the ;'l('\a[ion id mankind. 

Fortunately, there were a few. yes. main, who opposing the age-old 
doctrine of "Dixiiif Highl of Kings." in the lnlicl that Right, not Might, 
should be the law of England, brought about the Reformation. These 
Commonwealth followers were nuMi id deterndnation and power. The\ hedged 
their homes willi safeguards. The\ lieheaded Charles I. Cromwell i)ecanie 
Dictator. The House of Commons ruled for a short interval. 

Now among these liberty seeking individuals were the consanguineous 
relatives of the Attualer Clan— men ol courage, intellect and substance — 
who had fought a War of Words as good men should, for what they believed 
was for the betterment of their fellow men. Realizing that ('haili's I was 
ignoring Parliament and despairing of success in winning peace and ireedom 
of worship for themselves and their posterity, they, after thought, long and 
prayful. decided to embark on the 'Great Adventure." Thev would create a 
social structure of their own. They would venture into the unknown dangers 
of a strange land, with strange beings, in the 'New World.' 

Authenticated records show our name — in various forms — appearing in 
onl\ about one-quarter of the English Boroughs. Villages and Hundreds. 

In his General History of Connecticut. William R. Cutter says: "The 
surname Altwaler belongs to a large class of English famil\ names where 
the |)ersonal name of a man qualified for identification bv a description of 
his home, 'at-the-hill." etc., became fixed as a surname on his descendants . . . 
like the preposition 'de' dropped from another class of names."" 

"The earliest mention of the name Attwater found in faigland appears 
in the chartular\ of the Cathedral Church of Canterl)ur\. Godfried atle W ater. 
of Elywarton. in [he Parish of Stone, near Faversham. Count) of Kent, 
before A.D. 1367." 

"The old coat (d arms of Altwaler: sable on a fesse \\a\\ argenl bdween 
three awanz ( f [lie second two bars lun \ azure. CresI : a dcmi-lalbol argent 
in the month id an arron gules." 

It is evident that the following records had not been called to Mr. 
Cutler's attention at the time he wrote his historv. For in Rravlev's Topo- 
iirophical History of Siirrry. there is a most interesting item bearing on the 
possibilitv of our original name: ''''Manor of West Clandons In 127J). the 6th 
of Edward I.. John De Agua or John Attewater seems to have claimed for 
land he held at Clandon the right and privileges of ancient demesne and 



2 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

without j-ucces*." i Thi>i rouUI have been land attached to a manor h<tuse for 
his forebears' personal use. It was during the reign of tlu- House of 
Plantagenet. ' 

"The same jx*r?on. huwtner. on trial at Guildford against a writ of 
.y»i. uarranto, established the right for himself and his men of Clandon to 
buv ami sell in Guilford market without pacing tolls. 

"At the same time John Alte water was sununoned to answer the charge 
of haxiiig seized and imprisoned Robert Le Ken at Clandon Regis: in answer 
to which he pleadetl the lomplainant was his \ illain. and tlic tiiiotioii was 
decided in his favor." 

It is also stated that on the Rolls of Parliament, during \.D. 1200. in 
\ ul. I, Fol. 62. can be found the following: 

•Rol»ert Attwater. with his wift- Isabella, brings an Assize of Novel 
Dissiezin, . . . touching tenements in Rolherbethe." The above mentioned 
pro|»ertN wa> located on the south bank of the Thames, two and oii(-(|uarter 
miles south-east from St. Paul's Church. London.

ATWATER GENEALOGY 3 

And to coiiliiuic this continuilN . tlicre is the Idllouiiiy item in the History 
of Herts,' "Parish ol Thorley. Diocese of London. William Att Water, clerk, 
instituted 6th May. 133!^. Thomas Thorpe, instituted 2Uli Septendjer, 1393, 
upon death of William Att W^ater." 

Our most illustrious and outstanding English forebear ( it he was ai liiall\ 
kindred to our branch I is named in 1 lnl( hiiison's llistorv ol Dorset. \ ol. II. 
page 351 : 

"William Attwater was horn at Denninglon. in Somersetshire and was 
a fellow of Magdalene College. O.vford in 1492. I min ] 107 to 1502 he was 
Vice-Chancellor of that Ihiiversitv. and on the death ol Cardinal Moreton, 
he. for a short time, executed the ofiiee of Chancellor. After several lesser 
preferments he was. in 1502. Dean of King's Chapel: in 1506, Chancellor of 
Lincoln; in 1509. Dean of Salisbury, and in 1514. Archdeacon of Huntington. 
B\ the interest of Cardinal Woolsey, he succeeded him in the Bishopic of 
Lincoln and was consecrated November 12. 1514. He died February 4. 1520. 
aged 81. at his place at Woburn. Counl\ of Bucks, in the eluireh of wliirh 
his bowels were buried, and his bod\ in his (Cathedral." 

The manor of Royton, parish of Leidiam. was sold during the reign of 
Henry VHI (1509 to 1547 A.D.) to "Robert Attwater. who leaving two 
daughters and co-heirs. Mary the youngest carried it with other estates at 
Charing and elsewhere in the neighborhood to Robert Mon\wood. Escp. of 
Henewood, in Postling. He afterward resided at Pett. in Charing, being part 
ol his wife's inheritance, and dying in 1576. was buried in Leidiam (Church. 

"He left numerous issue by his wife, who survi\e(l him neaiK inrtx-ltnir 
years, when she dying in 1620. in the ninety-third year of her age, was 
interred near him. though a moiuimenl to her memor\ was erected at Mark's 
Hall, in Essex. She had. as it is said, at her decease, lawfully descended 
from her 367 children: 16 of her own: 114 grandchildren. 22<'> of ihe ihird 
generation and 9 in ihe fourth. 

"■"Ihe manor of Downe Court, in the parish of Leidiam: Rol)ert 
Atluater. of Ronton, in this parish, died, possessed of it in 1565. whose 
daughter and co-heir. Mary, carried il. with oilier estates in this parish and 
neighborhood, in marriage to Robert Honywood, Esq.. of Postling." 

Elias Edward \l\\aler. our outstanding historian, with ihe assistance of 
Robert Heiu\ Alwater, worked out an Alwater family tree covering the 
immediate forbears of Joshua and Daxid. 

Recognizing the care, accurac\ and inlegril\ of ihe aforemenlioned 
compilers, we must conclude that man\ ol the lamil\ relerences discovered 
by them were akin to our branch bul nol necessarib in direct line. 

So in this manner we come upon the will of Thomas Altuater. proxed 
October 5th. 1484. see Archdeaconry Court. Canleibury. Book 3. p. 23. There 
were two sons but oid\ John, who married Marvan. had issue. Of these four 
only Robert, the elder, whose will is recorded in Book 15. p. 6. carried the 
line through his son Thomas to Christopher whose will is recorded in I)ook

42, page 22. Christopher hat! four sons and a daughter. Joanna. \\\\o married 
Stephen Cooke. Their chiUiren brought in the Atwood and Best families. But 
we are only concerned with John Attwaler. who married Susan Narsin. 

Of this union, there were three chihlren — Joshua. Aim and l)a\iil. uho 
were to l»e the first Altwaters to hind in and assist in a very importatit part 
of colonizing a portion of the New \\ urid. Father John neglectetl to leave a 
will — dying in Ottoher 1636. Susan, mother of Jt)shua. had liim appointed 
to administer the estate. 

Three months later. Susan died during Jamiar\ <>f 16HT. She was hiiried

The register also shows Marriages and Christenings. Under the latter

there is the folhtwing entry:

The comfort dl llic Queen Elizabeth or the flying ships of today is in 
direct ((iiitrasl with tlic travt'l hardships — not to mi'iitioti tlir iiiroiueniences — 
of that I6.'>7 trip. 

It is reasonable to supposr that Joshua \tt\\at(>r and some others of 
means, including Theo])!) Eaton. Steph Goodyear. Geo. Lambcrton and 
others, did not ha\e their names on the manifest of the HEGIOH. For it 
was just at this time that Charles I — who had dissolved Parliament — fearing 
migration of man\ well-to-do Englishmen, issued the following "■['KOCLA- 
MATION: . . . that the King, being iiifonncd that great lunnbers of his 
subjects were yearly transported into tlios;' ports of America . . . among 
whom arc main idle and rcfractorx humors, whose oid\ or principal end 
is to live without reach of authority — doth command his officers and ministers 
of the ports, not to suffer any persons, being subsidy men or their value to 
pass any of those plantations without a license from his Majesty's connnis- 
sioners for plantations first obtained, nor any under the degree of subsidy 
men. without a certificate from two justices of the peace where they lived, 
that they have taken the oath of allegiance and supremacy, and a testimony 
from the minister of the parish, of their confonnit) to ihe orders and 
discipline of the Church of England." 

Without these certificates, any escaping non-conformists might, of 
necessity, have to bribe the captain, even if members of the joint enterprise. 
From all reports. Master Femes, of the HECTOR, was a brawler to say the 
least of his character. His rough treatment of some of the tourist passengers, 
like nineteen year old Lord Leigh, son of the Earl (tf Marlborough, was not 
unnoticed by Joshua and others. Adults paid five pounds for passage, if not 
members of the joint enterprise. One ton of general freight cost four pounds 
per passage. 

But even as everything comes to an end — they finally arrived in Boston 
Harbor June '!(). 1 637. 

Several town-sites in Massachusetts and New Hampshire were suggested 
as likely settlements. This would seem to |)rove that the group had no 
deiinite destination, except the \eu World, when they started. 

In Boston, th.ere was talk bv soldiers returning from the Pcquot war 
of the beautiful \alley and river at Ouinnipiac. Quin — meaning long ni|)pi. 
to water and ohke — place. .So the Inilian name meant Long-water-place. 

After considerable discussion, a committee consisting of Joshua Attwater. 
Francis Brown. John Beecher. Robert F^igg. Thomas Hogg. David Attwater 
and one other were appointed to investigate the territory. Neither Prudden. 
Eaton or Davenport were included in this fust liip. 

The seven spent the winter of 1637-U).!<"> at (^)uinnipiai . living in mud 
huts. One died. As his name is reported as Beecher. we ha\e accounted for 
six of the committee.

ecclesiastical authority in winch all civil matters and court authoritx were 
vested. The entire Colony was motivated l»\ this chiiK h aiithuriu. wliich in 
turn was governed by seven church members. Bro. Joshua Attwater was one 
of the members of this authority. 

The first |)ul)lic meetings were held in the ()|)('n. Finalh. these were 
transferred to Robert Newman's barn. In the meantime. )oung John Brockell. 
a London Surveyor, staked out the Townsite. As will be noted by a jierusal 
of the plan, a reproduction ot which is included in an Atwater History for 
the first time. Brt>ckett laid out nine squares for buildings, reserving 'Central 
Square" for public use. The streets in the Townsite included State, York. 
ChuK h. Grove. George. Chapel and College. 

In the meantime. Joshua Attwater and his scouting committee were 
anxious to complete their contract, for the purchase of the land, with the 
Quinnipiac Indians. The agreement was finally approved by the Church 
Authority and signed by Go\ . Eaton and the various Indian Chiefs. The 
latter included: 

MOMAl GIN - SUGCOGISM - QIESAQUAUSH - CARROrGIIOn - 
WEESAUCICK - MONTOWESE - SAWSEUNCK and 'SHALMPISHLM," 
her mark. 

As consideration, the Indians received 12 coats of English cloth, twelve 
alchemy spoons, twelve hatchets, twelve hoes, two dozen of knives, twelve 
porringers and four cases of French knives and scissors. Montowese, in his 
agreement, which gave him 'eleven coats of trucking cloth, and one coat of 
English cloth made up after the English manner.' also reserved a piece of 
land near tiic village, "for his men which are ten. and many squaws to 
plant in.' 

The first \ear was spent in erecting living quarters. All of these were 
constructed of hand-hewn, mortise and tenent type lumber. Later, bricks 
were imported from London. B\ 1639, Nov. 25th. the General Court was 
ready to order a meeting house to be erected at a cost of 500 pounds. It was 
fifty foot square and had a lower and turret, with banisters and raiU on the 
lop. (See seating plan in this volume, another first in Atwater Histories, i 

While rheo|diilos Eaton was Governor, the real leader, at this time, 
was John l)a\enpoii. who had (inalh established an autoi lalir cluucli-rule 
of the 'Republic of Newhaven.' Davenport, horn in Coventr\. England, in 
1597, of a middle-class, old and honored lainiK. had had a checkered career. 
He entered Oxford at sixteen and three years later, he was admitted to 
orders. Later, he becanie Vicar <d a church in London. 

Davenport, tliru his non-conformist utterances and tactics, earned the 
displeasure of Archbishop Laud. Fearing imprisonment, he found it necessary 
to flee to Holland. 

Now, as actual leader, of the 'most opulent colon\ which came into 
New England,' Davenport succeeded in eslaldishing an autocratic governing

On the iith of December, Montowese, sachem of 
another tribe, "in presence and with allowance and 
consent of Sawseunck, an Indian who came in company 
with him." sold to the English a tract of land lying 
north of that sold by Momaugin, and described as "ex- 
tending about ten miles in length from north to south, 
eight miles easterly from the river of Quinnipiac to- 
ward the river of Connecticut and five miles westerly 
toward Hudson's river." Montowese, reserving a 
piece of land near the village which now bears his

In m\ two okl \olumes of New Ha\en Coloii\ llecords ib'M'> to 1662 — 
we find numerous references concerning Joshua and David. Except for her 
listing in the seating arrangements, there is no reference to Ami in the 
above records, or for that matter in any (d tlie other histories about the 
Colony. 

Joshua, of course, was the most outstanding of the brothers, engaging 
in many activities. Our efficient compilers of the |)ast have reached the 
conclusion that his progeny finally died-out without issue. This confirms the 
well-established theory that we all stem from David. With tine last item 
about Joshua, we will proceed to chronicle a few David stories from the 
records. 

In the "List of Officials. Civil. Military, and Ecclesiastical of . . . New 
Haven Colony" compiled in 19.'^5. for the Tercentenarx . we find the b)llowing: 

"'ATWATER. Joshua (D. 16761 Clerk New Haven Train Band. Aug. 
1642 (resigned July 16441. Treasurer. New Haven Colonv." 

JUDGE (New Haven I. June 1652. Mav 1653. May 1654. (Removed to 
Boston)." 

It is claimeti that ""Daxitl was the first intli\itlual to take the Freemans 
Oath. We believe this refers to Newhauen. However, we do know that twenty 
plantors lioni our <dl<in\ wen! to Hartford, in Mav of 1665. Imt "were sent 
home as re|)udiated. after they had suffered the difficulties and hazards of 
an uncomfortable and unsafe journe\ in that wet season." 

In the following year — May 8. 1666 — "Mr. Jones acquainted ilic iown 
that Mr. Sherman was now in town ... in pursuance of the General Assend)l\s" 
order of last, to tender the freemans oath to our present freemen, and to

ATWATER GENEALOGY 17 

As Joshua Attwater had been a successful mercer of Ashford and 
prominent in its affairs, it was natural for him to be the first one to propose: 
'An offering of a peck of wheat or the \ahic of same, from everyone whose 
heart is willing' toward assistance U)r 'poor scholars at Har\ard College." 

Some New England historians claimed that this contribulion was proposed 
by Joshua for 'a school lor higher learning' at New Haven. In aii\ c\ciil. 
we know thai when he became Treasurer of the Hcpnlilic Joshua had a 
standing order passed at Town Meeting, requiring that such contributions 
be in the form of a tax. 

The first school master, is said to have been Ezekill Cheever, a Latin 
scholar, author oi 'Shoil Introduction To The T.atin Tongue.' He resided 
with "young Joshua Attwater, late of Kent, and now Treasurer of the Colony, 
who looked down on the Square "from his great mansion, where Osborn Hall 
now stands." Under a court ruling Joshua was to be paid five schillings per 
week for housing the teacher. 

Joshua's plea for a school of higlicr learning for ihe Coloii\ Imall) took 
root. In 1647. other powerful members of the 'church-state' hierarchy joined 
him in the movement. It was decided the time had come for a college of 
their own. Later, the Colony granted eight acres of Joseph Peck's land in 
New Haven, to the Collegiate School provided 'if settled here and so long 
as it shall remain here.' 

But this was the year in which a number of the more ])rosperous planters 
— including some of the Attwaters — lost a sizable stake, for that age. in the 
strange disappearance of one of their trading ships. 'The Phantom Ship' by 
Longfellow, immortalizes this episode in New Haven shipping history. (See 
under French Spoliation Claims.) 

So it was not until 1660 that the college project received a new lease 
of lile. This happened thru the generous action of Governor Hopkins of 
Coimecticut. In his will, the Governor put aside a sizable amount for the 
establishment of a college. John Davenport was named as one of the trustees. 
When the union between New Haven and Connecticut became a certainty. 
Davenporl nioxed. about 1670. to Boston, dissatisfied with ihe union and 
new teri(leii(ies in the Co|on\. 

A large portion ol ihe funds collected by Joshua Attwater and others 
went toward the support of the 'Collegiate School" in Branford and The 
Hopkins Graimnar S( hool" in \ew Haven. 

It was not until 1701. when the Colonial AssembK. meeting in New 
Ha\en. passed an act. dated October 9th. establishing a college, diat ihe 
'Collegiate School' was ollicially recognized. This came about thru the 
indefatigable efforts of the Rev. James Pierpont. Pastor ai the First Church 
of New Ha\en. Nine other ministers, as listed herein, joined him in the 
petition to the Colonial Assendih . He has. at times, been called the Pounder 
of Yale.

With Hartford using every means — including Legislaluc inlliicnce — to 
secure the college, the Trustees acted promjilK. I liey ordered the erection, 
in New Haven, of a College Hall and Hector's house: ordcicd all >lii(lciils 
to report at New Haven and elected two tutors. 

The first 'College' huilding — at the corner of Chapel and College Sts., 
was 170 feet long. 22 feet wide and M) feet high. 1 luce stories high, with a 
steep-roofed attic, it was huill entirclv of wood. Il ( oiilained a "lihrary. with 
large Chapel which was also used as a (lining iiall. kitchen and 20 suites of 
rooms for students.' 

Leaders in Wethersfield, Saybrook and Branfoid rebelled against '('onrt 
Acts' and also against the action of the trustees in ordering the building 
buih in New Ha\en. Main of the hundreds of library books, of the Collegiate 
School, were distributed in homes in the above mentioned towns. The follow- 
ing is a report of the episodes inxolving the return of the library to New 
Haven : 

"HIS HONr the GOVr hearing of the refusal of th.' Libiar\ calls 
together the Council to Saybrook, where they ordered Mr. Buckingham in 
whose house they were to deliver . . . but he refused, then after pains taken 
with him by perswasion to no pirpose, they bound him o\er to answer to 
the next Genl Court in 100 pound bond, and innnediately ordered the 
Sheriff to SIEZ the BOOKS, who went according but met with such opposition 
that he returned again and took new' orders with him to break doors and 
call assistance, which he did and broke the door of Mr. Buckinghams house 
and entered and seizd the Librar) and it was guarded all niglit and |n(i\ision 
was made next day for the Transporting of it by Carts, but in the night the 
Carts were broken and confounded and oxen turn<'d away; nevertheless they 
made new provision and the next day under ye Major of Ye County's 
Conduct, they were transported out of the Town, and some of the opposers 
that talked sausily were bound o\er to the tiext County Court. 

"The books tho' they met with opposition b\ the wa\ in tiiat some of 
the bridges were broken up, yet in three days they arrived at ye Colledg at 
New Haven, about ye beginning of Decendir. but we found about 260 
wanting: however ail we had being above a 1000 VOLLUMS of choice books 
we fixed up in order in ve Library." 

Middletown had also tnade a strong bid to secure the school. But Gov. 
Saltonstall. a firm friend of iIh' college idea. iikUk rd the General Assembly 
to pass the following resolution: 

'That under the present circumstances of the affairs of die Collegiate 
School, the reverend trustees be advised to proceed in thai affair: and to 
finish the house they have built in New Haven, for the entertainment of die 
scholars belonging to the Collegiate School.' 

As early as 1701 — Novendier II th — a nundxT of books were Inongbl 
by each trustee to the meeting and presenting them to the grouj) wtjuld su) : 
'I give these books for the founding of a college in Connecticut.'

Despite the Reverend's schdlaiK and |)crsisteiit appeals, no progress was 
made with this man. who was now trying to huild character, until Cotton 
Mather's memorable letter ot the 14th of January. 1718: 

'Sir.' said he. "though \ ou have felicities in vour fainih. which. 1 prav. 
God continue and multiply, yet certainly, if what is forming at New Haven 
might wear the name of YALE COLLEGE, it would he better than a name 
of sons and daughters. And your munificence might easil\ obtain for \ ou a 
commemoration and per])etuation of Nour valual)le name, uliicli would indrcd 
be much better than an l'.g\ptian pyramid.' 

Those capital letters nmst have caught the eye of this op|)ortunist. for 
within six months 'three bales or trunks of valual)le goods' arrixed in Boston, 
from Elihu \ ale. to be sold for the benefit of the School. There was also a 
'fulldength })ortrait of King George L, by Kneller.' (said at present to be in 
the College collection): 'an escutcheon representing the ro\al arms, which 
was destroyed in the Revolution, and a large box of books.' In the invoice, 
some of the materials were listed as follows: '25 pieces of garlix. 18 pieces 
of calico. 17 pieces of worsted goods, 12 pieces of Spanish poplin. 5 pieces 
of plain muslin. 3 pieces of camlet, and 2 of black and white silk crepe.' 

While the Yale Genealogy puts a very high value on Elihu's sole contri- 
bution to the School, most writers agree the goods sold for $560. after 
having been inventoried at 200 pounds. 

"We were favored and honored.'* writes Tutor Johnson, on that bright 
September morning of 1718. "with the presence of his Honor Governor 
Saltonstall and his lady, . . . Lieutenant Governor and the whole Superior 
Court, a great number of reverend ministers and a great concourse of specta- 
tors. The trustees, meeting in the new building first most solemnlv in the 
sonorous Latin periods still spread upon their records, 'named our college 
by the name of Yale College . . . upon which the Hon. Col. Tailer, who had 
been sent over by Queen Anne as Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts Bay, 
and who in anticipation of these festivities had made the toilsome journey 
from Boston, represented Governor ^ ale in a speech, expressing his great 
satisfaction." 

A ])rofuse and 'painful' ( ? I letter of thanks was of course forwarded lO 
the donor. Duinmi r later reported 'liiat the old gentleman was more than a 
little pleased — saving that lie expressed at first some kind of concern whether 
it was well in him. being a churchman" (sic) 'to promote an Academy of 
Dissenters. 

Elihu now agreed, verballv of course, to give the College £200 sterling, 
per annum, as long as he li\ed. This was to be continued after his death. 
Within a month, according to Dunnner. he had broken his promise. How- 
ever, in 1721, Elihu Yale claimed he had sent goods to the College, valued 
at £100. There is no record of this shiiMnent — if it did arrive. He left an 
unsigned will, containing a clause with a bequest of £500 to the College. Mr.

it as a valid le^ae\. 

The ^ ale Genealogy refers, here anil there, to llie Governor's niarilal 
status. While Klihu married Catharine Klford Hynmers at Madras, in lOoO. 
the Genealogv 'admits — that he also was living* there, in iniinoial relations 
nith a Mrs. Nieks and a Mrs. Pavia. tin- latter a Portuguese Jewess.' Mrs. 
H\nnjers is described as *a eopper-colt>red native of India." But recent his- 
torians have placed Mrs. Hynmers as Knglish. even tlutugh thev admit -he 
might have Keen Portuguese and a Jewess! 

i'here were manv men. during those earlv vears of the Collegiate School.

ATWATER GENEALOGY 23 

On December 20. 1686 Sir Edmond Andros arrived in Boston with a 
commission from the King appointing him Coxcnior of all \cu England. In 
order to extend his governing over Connecticut he wrote several letters to the 
Governor of Connecticut requesting the surrender of the Connecticut Charter. 
The request was l)rought before the Assembh and il stalled on direct 
compliance. Einally on October 22, 1687 Andros announced that he would 
send or come himself to pick up the Charter. On October 26 he left Boston 
attended by eight members of his Council and guards and arrived in Hartford 
late in the afternoon ot October .HI where they were met by Conned iciit 
Governor Treat and his staff. Andros proposed that they dine first, after wlii( li 
the) meet in the Council Chand>er. He graciously invited Governor Treat, the 
Deputy Governor, and the Secretary of the Council to dine with him. 

At the meeting after the dinner were the Connecticut Officials and twentv- 
four of the thirty-four elected deputies, among whom were Moses Mansfield 
and Abram Dickerman of New Haven. A member of Andros' partv read the 
King's command to Andros to annex Connecticut to his government of Massa- 
chusetts. The Charter was then brought forward and handed to Governor 
Treat, who snipped the thong with which the Charter was tied, unrolled il. 
and laid it on the table. Governor Treat then made a speech setting forth 
what the Charter meant to Connecticut and expressed his con\i(tioti of the 
illegality of these proceedings. John Wadsworth of Hartford llirti lollowcd 
with a sjjeech backing up the remarks of the Governor. He was followed by 
Andros who made some tactful remarks. It is then recorded that Andrew 
Leete, son of William Leete. the former Governor of New Haven, got up and 
was in the midst of a blistering attack on the King's actions with respect to 
Connecticut when a sudden commotion occurred. 

It is not entirely clear as to just what happened at this pdint. One 
account has it that Andrew Leete was taken suddeidv ill and pitched forward 
onid the table upsetting the candelabra and extinguishing the candles, while 
another report has it that a sudden gust of wind coming in through the open 
window extinguished the candles. During the momentary darkness until the 
candles could be relighted the Charter disappeared from the table. One report 
states that the Charter was snatched from the table and passed to .Tos(>ph 
Wadsworth who was standing outside the open window, who took it to the 
house of Samuel Wyllys. on whose j)roj)erty stood a large oak tree. Fhcre 
was no one home but Mistress Wyllys. who suggested that the Charter be hid 
in a hollow of their oak tree. The Charter reposed in ll:c lice until a safer 
place was found and (lie tree was known lliiTcal'icr ;i> the ('JKirtcr Oak. 

When the candles were relighted Andros saw thai the Charter had 
disappeared and noting that no one had left tlic room lie realized he had 
been tricked, but made the best of the situation and announced there seemed 
to be no further occasion to conlirnie the nic(>ting. Thus. th<^ Connrcfirnt 
Charter was saved.

Theological Departiiunt of Yale College. He was ordained a Congregational 
minister in 1!)41. spending eight vears until 11! P) in Raxeiina. Oliin. 'I lie 
following year he spent in foreign travel and. in io52. was installed [jaslor 
of the Congregational Church in Salem Falls ( Rollingsford I. New Hampshire. 
Five years lal(M- li(> returned to New Haven and Imilt u|) a new cliurcli in 
the eastern pari ot llie cil\. This new congregation was (Hgani/cd in lo03 
and he served as its pastor until 1870 for the remaining years of his active 
ministry. 

We of the faniiU know liini lu'sl lor the cunlriliulinns he ni;;di' nj an 
historical and genealogical nature, uk sll\ in llic liter years <d lii~ life. 
Beginning in lo51 he published "A Genealogical Hegistcr ol llic I )(>c,i(lants 
in the Male Line of David Atwater, One of the Original Planters of New 
Haven. Conn., to the Fifth Generation." Copies of this first edition are 
rare indeed. 1 he writer is most grateful to Charles Hol)art Attwater of 
Santa Monica. California, for an opportunity to examine his copy, which 
he naturalh \alues highly. A few quotations from the prefaced "Notice" 
and "Introduction" will reflect the care and industi\ of our first family 
genealogist who must have begun his labors more than 200 years after the 
arrival of the first members of the family in America in 1637. 

"The following Register has been prepared for llic gratification of 
manv of the descendants of Da\ id Atwater, who have expressed a desire to 
trace the line of their descent from him. Great care has been taken to make 
it correct: some errors, however, may possibly be found, and unquestionably 
there are many omissions . . . 

"In regard to the orthography of the name, usage differs; some willing 
Atwater. and others Attwater. The men who hrouglil llic name to this ccmntry 
have, each with his own hand, written it upon llic l'ul>li( Records of llif 
New Haven Colony — the one Uavid Atwater and the other Joshua Atwater — 
in neither case using the letter "T" more than twice. Fugill. how(-\cr. the 
first clerk of the Cojoiu. wherever he has the occasion to write the name. 
uses "T" three times. If llic orthographical ([uestion is carried farther back 
than the first introduction of the name into America, it will be found that 
the name was originallv written Attewater. in which form it may be found 
in Doomsdav Book, like its cognates Attewdl. \ttewood and some others 
uliicli !ia\c now Icsl the prefix, as Attetow nscnd. \fterward lltf fir-l ""K" 
was dropped, and the name was written \llwalcr. as is gcncralK il not 
universallv w ritten in Flngland to this da\ . 

"it has been found impossible to designate those branches of the family 
who differ from the more commonlv recei\ed method of spelling, which 
is Atwater . . , 

"Joshua Atwater and l)a\ id Atwater were among the first planters of 
New Haven, as their autographs in the first volume of the Town Records 
sufficiently prove. 



26 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

"Tradition says that the family of Joshua, in the male line, sihui lui aine 
extinct: and all researches yet made serve to confirm it. He was prohahly a 
married man at the time of his emigration, as his family is mimhered as 
iHo i^K-rsons in the list of planters. If this he so. he soon lost liis wife, for he

Atwater of Terryville. Connectic ul. a brother of Francis Atwater, tlie compiler 
of four \oluiiies of Atwater History. 

Dorence had enUsted in the Connecticut Cavalr\ al the age of sixteen. 
l)een captured and ?t'iit to Andersoiix illc I'risoii. In this prison 35.000 liiion 
sokliers had been held and 13.000 had died. Working in the |iri>un Im-piial. 
Dorence had preserved a complete roll of llic iiaincs and rank (d tlic-c men 
and their places of burial. \\ hen Miss Barton was authorized by Congress to 

locate and mark the gra\es of I'nion soldiers in the South, lliis roll was of 
great value and Dorrnce was detailed to accompan\ her to XndiTsoin illc. 

During this service Dorence was accused of ihclt <d his own records 
from an officer, was court martialed and given a dislionorable discharge. 
From that time Miss Barton was his close friend and militant supporter. 
Through her efforts, and those of other friends, some enlisted by Miss 
Barton, the sentence of the court martial of iJlOS was set aside more than 
30 years later. 

I had onl\ one brief oppurtunits to meet Clara Barton: that was at 
the home of Francis Atwater in Meriden. She was then as close a friend 
of her host as she had been of his brother. Francis had served as Treasurer 
of the Red Cross during the Spanish- American War and had accompanied 
her to Havana. As near as I can recall she was then 85 or 86 years of age, 
in full possession of her faculties and interested in all that went on about her. 

I I does not take nmch imagination to call up one of the earliest recorded 
scenes in the life lime of public service of Clara Barton. It is the da\ after 
the Sixth Massachusetts had been fired upon in lialtimore. Ellsworth had 
been killed and the regiment with its wounded had arrived in Washington. 

The wounded arc (|uartered in the old Senate Cluunber and those 
attending them filled the seats whilst Miss Barton, from the vice-president's 
chair, was reading the lidme town newspaper aloud.

Heraldry 

Irom the earliest times, nations, tribes, chieftains and families have 
adopted distinguishing symbols. The Greek and Roman heroes wore various 
devices on their shields. In the East, the Chinese Empire was symbolized by 
the five-clawed dragon: the Japanese empire bv the chrvsanthemum. In the 
New World, the Aztecs carried shields and banners adorned witli symbolic 
devices. Totemism was another forerunner of heraldr\. 

It was not until the 12th centurv ihat iruc heraldry began in Western 
Europe. Kings and princes were the first to make use of personal insignia. 
Although earlier monarchs had adopted personal marks on seals, the first 
English king to use his great seal as a coat of arms on his shield was Richard I 
who ruled from 1189 to 1199. During the late 12th and throughout the entire 



30 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

13lh centuries arms ap|>eared iiu-reasiiigh mi shields. \^ ithiii a >\uh[ iime 
most of the great houses in Kiighiiid aiul upon tin* Continent were displa\ ing 
them. 

\\ riters attribute the sudden einergeney of heraldr\ at this time to the 
need of knights and lords for some mark of identifieation. When they were 
in full armor, they were unreeognizal>le. Feu louUi read so instead of usnig 
a nameplate eaeh man adopted a distinctive insignia, known as a "eoal of 
arms." He displaced this on his siiield. hanner and horseclotii. as well as on 
his eiiat, and wore it in ei\il life as well. The hereditary character of heraldry 
owed its existence to the feudal soi-ial system in wlmli ^-mich on il^ -i( iilar 
>ide was held tt»gether li\ personal allegiance of each man to lii^ Icml. The 
coat of arms hecame not (iiil\ a svinixil i>l llic ouncrs iilcnlil\ Imt al-d his 
status as well. 

The great increase in the nundier of coats of arms e\entuall\ made 
some kind of contr«)l necessarv . In tlic nid of the \M\\ centurv. aluiul 1.500 
arms had been adopted in England. Evidence points out that in the I llli

of them are still observed while others haxc laileii into disuse. Since no iuo 
men might wear the same coat of arms simultani'ousl) . the sons were re(|uire(i 
b) custom to ""dilference" their fathers coat by alterations. Frequentl\ ilie\ 
changed the colors, added new devices to the coat, perhaps a border, or both. 
The first son wore a label, the second a crescent, the third a star, the iomth 
a bird called the ''martlet." the fitlh a ring, the si\lli a jlciir-dc-lxs. the sexeiith 
a rose, the eighth a certain kind oi cross called a "Cross moline." and the 
ninth an eight-pelalled flower. I pon the death of the father, the first son 
inherited the plain coat of arms from him and removed the label. The 
younger sons, however, retained their indixidual marks, and in turn passed 
them on to their descendants who also added further dilferences. 

Women also possessed certain rights regarding their fathers" coals ol 
arms. Daughters were allowed to use their father's coat which they de})icted 
on a diamond-shaped "lozenge." When they married, they '"impaled" tlieir 
own iamily coat beside their husband's on his shield. If their father had no 
sons, they became heraldic heiresses and could place their own famiU shield 
in the middle of tluMr husband's shield. This modified shield was called 
"escutcheon ot pretense." Illegitimate sons were required to seek a new 
grant of arms from the Crown either in the form of the original coat with a 
special mark of difference or an entirej\ new coat. 

Coats of arms were passed from one generation io anollu'r in ilie same 
way as land. If a man had no sons, the land and arms passed to his 
daughter and thence to her son. The son. Ii(iue\er. could not use the coal 
inherited tludugh his mother without "quartering" it. This look place when 
the shield was dixided into e(pial "(luai lers" in which were placed the 
various coats of arms whi( h its owner had iidierited. 1 bus if a man had no 
sons and several daughters, all of lii> grandchildren could (piarlci his arms 
with their own father's coal. It nia\ be seen that after several generations 
of marriages to heiresses, a laniiK might have a large mimber of (piarlerings. 

I he gencial principles of (juarlering are slill ol)scr\ed. K\i-n when there 
are more than four coals of arms used. the\ are still called quarterings. 
Up Io lour (fuarters ma\ he placed in each quarter of a -liicld. Ihcn there 
are more than this mimber. the lour (|uarters of the shield n)a\ liccome 
"grand (luarters. one or nmrc ol llicm being >ub-di\i(lc(l inio lesser (piarters 
to acconnnodate the extra coats. Since Tudor limes, any number of new coats 
ma\ be added consecutively without sub-di\ision into fours. As a result, a 
shield becomes "quarterly of six or "(piarlerlx ol ten. whatexer the nundier 
of coats may be. 

It does not follow that families having tlii' ^anle surnames are entitled 
to wear the same coat of arms. If one can trace blood relationship to the 



32 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

other, that fainilx i> eiititleci to a differeiu-ed version of the arms. I nrelaled 
families, therefore, who ha\e the same surname are given a dissimihir phiin 
coat of arms. 

The Atuater loat of arms was worn on sexeral important State oirasions 
in the histor\ of Englanii. It is first recorded us heing home l>\ ]o\\n W ater. 
^ ork HeraUl at Arms, at the funeral of King Edward l\ in 1 U>i-}. His arms 
were des4-ril»ed as "sahle. on a fe>M' wa\\ argent. IkIui-imi three swans of ihe 
set-ond, two bars. \\a\\ azure, crest a (Itiiii-laliiot argent, in the inuutli an 
arrow gule>."* These arms belonged to tin- " Vlualcrs of Kent, uilli \ariations 
of the fesse for tlitference. The arms willi the same crest were confirmed to 
Robert Atwater ttf Kent b\ Clarencieux Harvey in ISfvI. with "tlie colors of 
the crest being transposed for dilTerence." Robert Atwater being without 
male heirs, it is found that his ilaughter Marv. who married Robert llon\- 
wood. iniierited se\erai of her fathers manors and bore his coat ol arms. 
At the entrance of one of the Honywood manor houses, a contemporarv 
writer in the late l(»lh centurs described the ear\e(l quarterings of ihe 
famih's arms. One i»f these was the "Sabli'. ua\\. bendx. of four, in fesse 
argent, between three swans proper, for Waters."

Facetiously, I have heard Atualer members say: In tliose earlv clays, 
our ancestors were either minister? or rum sellers.' But In In- fair In lliose

considered an honorable one in New Havens early hospitable days. 

In more serious talcs, we had heard of daring Attwater sea captains 
running the Privateer Blockatles in the Carribbean. in our investigation and 
research covering numerous Atwater "old wives' talcs." manv of which had 
no foundation in fact, we remembered the French Spoliation Claims. Ila\iiig 
received the nmnihccnl sum of 832.70 from a New Haven law firm, in the 
early part of the Centurx. as our share in these ship claims, wr knew ihat 
this 'tale' was worth further investigation. 

So we wrote to the National Archives and Record Service in W ash- 
ington. 1). C. In response to our request for authentic information, ihe 
following letter was received: 

""\ our letter of June 22. 1954. requested information about f rcnch

Reverend and Dear Sir: 

In compliance with your desires. 1 now give vou the relation ol tlial 
apparition of a ship in the air, which I recei\cd from the mcst credible, 
judicious, and curious surviving observers of it. 

In the year 1647. besides much other lading, a far more rich treasure 
of |)assengers. ( five or six of which were persons of chief note and worth 
in \ew-Ha\enl put themselfs on board a new ship, built at Hhode-Islaiul. of 
about 150 tons: but so vvaltv. that the master ( Lamberton I often said she 
Would |)rove llieir grave. 

In the month of January, cutting their way througii muih ice. on which 
the\ were accompanied with Reve:end Mr. Da\enport. besides many other 
friends, with niaii\ fears, as well as prayers and tears, they set sail. Mr. 
Da\(Miporl in ])ra\er. with observable emphasis, used these words: 'Lord, 
if it be tin |)leasure to burv thes'^ friends in the bottom of the sea. thev are 
thine, same them." 

The s|»ring loMnwing, no tidings of these friends arrived with the ships 
from Kngland. New-Haven's heart began to fail her: this put the godly on 
much prayer, both |)ublic and private, 'that the Lord would I if it was his 
pleasure I let them hear what he had done with their dear friends, and 
prepare them with suitable submissicn to his Hclv Will.' 

In June next ensuing, a great thunder-storm arose out of the north-west 
after which (the hemisphere being serene) abcut one hour before sun-set. a

earthquakes and tornadoes. Perhaps the reason for this la\ in tlu- fact that 
they are no prohlem in the great Middle West and of rare occurence in the 
populous East. In the ruggest western mountains, to lie sure, thev picked off 
many a traveller from a mountain trail and overwhelmed man\ an isolated 
mining camp hut for the most part the) thundered down, tearing up irees 
and dislodging rocks, hut quite harmlessi) otherwise. 

Now it is different in the West. The enthusiasm over skiing and nlhcr 
winter sports takes thousands of people into the hills on every fine winter 
day, and other thousands travel the mountain highways, under the avalanche 
threat. Hence the avalanche-buster. 

My son's experience during the second world war included service as 
Aide to the General in charge of the training of ski-troops and mountain 
troops. He was, before that, a skilled woodsman, having lived much of his 
life in Montana near the top of the Continental Divide, with interludes of 
taking a Harvard B.A. and of coaching football — all useful experience. \ 
study of Swiss snow-control methods was helpful, hul conditions in ihe 
Rockies differ from conditions in the Alps and for the most part he has had 
to blaze his own trail. At Alta he has set up a laboratory for snow-stud) with 
instruments — most of them devised by himself — for the accurate measurement 
of snowfall, wind direction and velocity, snow temperatures, changes in snow 
consistency, and the other factors that make one inclined snow-mass deadly 
and another harmless. But this work, important and exacting as it is. would 
be of little practical value without the working out of methods to neutralize 
the danger when understood and predicted. 

The force in a great avalanche is tremendous, and no j)ossible structure 
of barriers will withstand it. The only feasible method of dealing with it is 
to make little avalanches of the big ones before they grow big, and to bring 
down those that inevitably grow big. when they can be brought down safely. 

Small avalanches may often be induced to slide by a skillful and dating 
skiier, though this method has its hazards. The dangerous '"cornices that 
form along sharp ridges as a result of wind-action require a different treat- 
ment, as do great masses of "slab" snow. Dynamite charges, suitably placed, 
take care of some of these: others are persuaded to come down with cannon 
fire, a small howitzer gun being found the most efficient tool for the imipose. 
These techniques were worked out by experiment at Alta. 

Travellers motoring over some of tli<' lugh passes in Colorado la>t 
summer were startled to find themselves in the midst of artillery fire and may 
have thought thev had blundered into a bit of guerrilla warfare, but it was 
merely a set of tests to find the best gun-emplacements and the correct range 
for the guns that will make those dangerous stretches of highway safe next 
winter. 

Avalanches, of course, run in regular channels, though sometimes they 
run miles further and hundreds of feet deeper than in other years. The 
main ones have najnes and infamous histories. The ski resort at Alta is on 



56 ATWATER GENEALOGY 

the >ite of an abandoned silver mine of the old da\s and during the time 
of the mining aetivitv man\ men were caught and killed 1>\ the avalanches. 
That the njodern methods of snow etuitrol are effeetive is j)roved hy the fact 
that since 19U> when the snow station was set uj» at Alta there has not l)een 
a single fatalit) there, though thousands of skiiers are on the slopes everv 
fine week-end during the winter. 

M\ son's activities are not confined to Alia. He inspects ski projects all 
through the western mountains and plans safety measures and recommends 
safetx procedure. He is called on in snow emergencies — as wlicii l;i-l wiiiln 
an army plane crashed near the top of one of the highest and most rugged 
peaks of the Wasatih Range. The accident happened at the liciglil o| ihc 
a\alanche season and the region is one of the most iruu cessihlc in I tali. 
MittitN .\twater was detailed to lead the n'scuc partx and to find a>- sale a

Helen Atwater 

No. 1523 

Home Economist 

Rorn in Summerville, Massachusetts, the daughter of Dr. Wilbur Olin 
Atwater. a pioneer investigator in the field of human mjtrition. Miss Alualc r 
literally grew up in the field to which she devoted her lifetime. Taken abroad 
at the age of six as her father pursued his scientific studies, she learned 
German in Germany and French in France. She used both languages as 
editorial assistant to her father in slucTu's that were inlcrnalional in scope 
and which set the pattern for scientific experiment in this country. 

Set Up Station in Connecticut 

During her childhood her father conducted the first agriculture 
experiment station ever set up in the United States, in Connecticut. In 1894 
Congress appropriated the first money for work in this field, and Dr. 
Atwater came to the Department of Agriculture as head of the new Olfitc ol 
Experiment Stations. In 1896 he turned out the first tables ever made on ihc 
composition of familiar foods. 

After her graduation from Smith College, Miss Atwater helped on ihc 
first popular presentation of these facts, which went out as Farmers' Bulletin 
No. 142. She lived to see her father's centenary and the fiftidh annixcrsary 
of his Federal pioneering celebrated. 

Two years after Dr. Atwater's death in 1907. Miss Atwater joiii.d the 
staff of her father's old department, and for fomtcrn years continutil there 
her work of interpreting scientific findings into la\nians language. She 
then became first editor of the Journal of Home Economics, monthly official 
organ of the American Home Economics Association. 

Did International Work 

She was also one of the organizers of intcrnalional ( (mfciences on human 
welfare. She served as a consultant for the Assoi iatrd ( !oiiiitr\ uoincn of 
the World, with headquarters in London. 

Miss Atwater's work in coiuiection uith the joint efforts of national 
women's organizations began during the first World War. when she served

fertilizers, to the feeding of doiiicslic animals, ami uiliinah-K to iIh' Ircdiiig 
of man. which was his last and all-ahsorliinti intciol. 

Wherever there has been researcli of as high an order as i'mfcssor 
Atwater and his associates undertook, adequate conditions almost invariahly 
surrounded the work. It is hardly possible to conceive work of such magnitufle 
as developed through Professor Atwater's work at Weslevan being coikIik hd 
with the facilities at his disposal, luil willi wlial lie had I'lufcssor Xtwatcr 
laid ihe foundation upon \\lii(li has been built two su|)cr-slrn( tiiic- wlinh 
will last for main decades, it not forever. 

Single-handed, he worked out a s\stcm of in\estigatioii in aarii nlliiral 
chemistry and subsequentK in the nutrition of man that, taken up li\ llic 
government, formed the basis of the establishment of the broad series of 
agricultural experiment stations that now exist. In 1!!7.'^. with a grant of 
Sl.OOO from one Wesleyan's Alumni, and permission from the Trustees to use 
the laboratory, the first agricultural experiment station in the I nited Slates 
was established, and Professor Atwater was made the director. 

As the movement spread rapidly there was soon needed a (cnlral ( Icaring 
house for the scientific work of the stations. This work coming logic all\ nndcr 
the head of ihe Department of Agriculture, i'rofessor Atwater was ( hoscn 
by this department as the first Director of its experiment stations. 

Soon after this, from the stud\ of animal feeding. I^rofessor Alualcr 
was directing his energies to chemical and statistical researches on the food 
and nutrition of man. He had earl\ realized the importance of a social and 
economic study of the relations of food and diet to the labor, power, health 
and moral tone of communities, and it was from this scientific studies of 
dietaries, begun in a small way. that the investigation dexcloped into a large 
investigation of the dietetic condition obtaining in \arious parts of the counlry. 

Through the work of this college professor, working with increasing 
equi[)ment. special appro})riations were secured from Congress to study the 
nutrition of man, and the whole enterprise soon became an extensive 
co-operative study of food and diet extending litcralK from coast to coast. 

While Professor Atwater's work in these directions had attracted nuK h 
attention from physiologists and economists, the venture that placed him in 
the foremost rank of the abstract scientists as such was his effort to 
demonstrate the fundamental laws in niitrilioii. and llms place u|)on a 
scientific basis what had hitherto been tnpiricisni in diel<'ties. I'or thi- 
purpose he succeeded in interesting the go\eniment and individuals, as well 
as other institutions, in raising a large sum of inone\ lor thi' construction 
of a respiration calorimeter, without the remotest expectation of securing 
results of immediate practical value. The whole enterprise was based upon the 
higher plane of abstract scientific research — a search for Irutfi.

The Work didie with the respiration caltiriini'ter uttratted earK alteiilioii

made hv the Carnegie Institution at W ashington. All this money was devoted 
to alistract seientifie research with the respiratiitn calorimeter devised aiul 
constructed in the basement of Judd Hall, the chemical lahoratoi \ al Wesleyan 
I niversitv. The work done here was so important that the Carnegie Institiilion 
carried it on from here ti» a huilding specially designed for the purpose, 
located in a larger city near medical sciiools and hospitals. 

The pre>ent laliorator\ is the admiration of all fori'ign physiologists as 
well as American. Iiut as the ilirector has said, this liuilding would not fxist 
had it not been for the encouragement of ihe Board of Trustees of W eslcvan 
I niversitv and the energv of Professor Atwater in founding this iiiiidainrulal 
research with the respiration calorimeter. 

At this ptiint it might be interesting to quote from a Wesleyan University 
Bulletin. No. lo. dated Ma\. lo96. a paragraph aboiil a Respiration Calori- 
meter's work, with its particularly modest and significant last sentence: 

"Research upon nutrition has reached the point where the study of ihe

following year was promoted to be professor of cheinistr\. which title he 
held until his death, though incapacitated for work since November. 1904. 
From 1875 to 1877, Professor Atwater was the first director of the Connecticut 
Agricultural Experiment Station, which was the first established in tiiis 
country. In 1888 he became the first director of the Office of Exj)eriment 
Stations in the United States Department of Agriculture and held the office 
until 1891. With both of these institutions he kept in active touch until his 
illness, and in the latter post of his two successors have been his friends and 
associates. Doctor A. W. Harris. '80. and Doctor A. (". True, '7.'^. His 
last important appointment was as chief of the nutrition investigations of 
the United States Deparlinenl of Agriculture, and it was iindn the patronage 
of this department and (»f the Carnegie Institution of Washington that his 
latest researches were conducted. Of the numerous scientific and social 
organizations and enterprises with which Professor Atwater was connected, 
and of the various honors which were conferred upon him. the lack of 
s|)ace forbids the enumeration. Neither is it possible to list the more than 
150 publications which bear his name." 

And in conclusion this note — a minute concerning Professor Atwater 
adopted by the faculty of Wesleyan University shortly after his dcalli in 1907: 

'in the death of Wilbur 01 in Atwater. Wesleyan University loses a 
member of its faculty who in scientific research stood pre-eminent. TTis 
name was more widely known in the scientific circles of this countr\ and 
Europe than that of any other professor in the institution at the present or 
in the past. Himself an investigator, he knew how to engage others in the 
work of investigations. He had rare judgments and his reputation were largely 
due lo his ability as an organizer and director of scientific work. In die 
earlier part of his scientific career his work was devoted chiefly to agricultural 
chemistry, and he was a potent influence in the creation of a more scientific 
agriculture."

fellow involved in mundane pursuits oi \arious kiinU l<ir inati\ \('ars in 
Wall Street, New York — all higliK lionorahle and niaii\ (d which otahli-iicd 
records — he still did not feel as though he liad a( (omplished anything worth- 
while during his sojourn here. 

On tlie other hand. Jessie, his wife, in her lic\-da\ was a lirilliant 
personality. It was thru her initiative that he financed and |)iiMi^lit'd IcmiiKt 
— a magazine for thinking {)e()|)l(\ From her remaining nri|iulilish('d pocnis. 
he requested several of her seholarU friends including Dr. Mildred W (ilTcndcn. 
Mary and Margaret Buckley and Gladys Blakey to select a few suitahle for 
this history. 

Remember, members, the modus operandi (d ihc true poet synd)olizes 
words the meaning of which — at first — are beyond the immediate grasp of 
us ordinary punsters. Therefore, in order to properly understand her ingeiuous 
epigrams read them more than once. Remember the j)ocl s|)ans eons in a feu 
words, while giving lightning thrusts to the essence of the subject. 

Later, if time is allowed, we hope to republish man\ of licr editorials 
and the balance of her poetical works — from which she \\a> withdrawn so 
unexpectedly. And this might have been a nmcli belter work, if ?hc had 
been physically able to read and revise it. 

The following of her poems were selected for this issue: 



Word Power 

My dearly Beloved: 

Play with words, toss them up in sport, see how liiirli \ ou can 
make them go, yet catch ihcin again like a child: 

Hoard words, heap thcni into i;litlcring piles, listen to their iiojdcn 
sounds and gloat over them like a miser: 

Dip into words, clea\e their shining surfaces antl lost awhile in 
their shallow coolnesses, emerge refreshed and inxigorated — like a bather: 

Or better, delve into words, seeking deeplyd)urie(l meanings or long- 
lost significances, — perchance to bring up ancient treasure^ike a diver. 

Send words out with kindK messages attached, watch them ll\ 
away with )()ur thoughts . . . tln-n wait for iheni to icimn to \ou like doves; 

Greet bold, new words as well as cling to the old and cheii-hed — 
aware that all words have innate valiio and di-linci personalities — like people: 

Better yet, worship all holy words, make obeisance in their presence, 
bow before their magic and kneel before their wonder- like a priest: 

Dare even BE a certain word, whieh living on generation after 
generation, bears profound meaning and carries joy and solace — like Love;

So frail a bough to face its fate; so tender a stem to l)ear

She is embodiment of Peace, who kneels before the hour 
When in the fullness of release, she wields a surer |)ower: 
Yet, can but dream Today away and cower, although Tomorrow, 
Dread reality menaces sperm and womb disastrously; 

Stark force of circumstance, empower the bough to face its burgeon; 
Strengthen this stem: bring bud and (lower to fruition. As guerdon 
Of courage, grant her a near accouchement: that all peoples of the earth 
May hear the birth-cry of a finer, nobler Era, 

When Peace, recast in stronger mold of bronze, shall opinly 

Defy War's rust-corroding hold on man's societx 

And stand erect, century after century — a modern Pax.

Why past editors and compilers found it necessary to mispell all the 
Attwater names of our English ancestors is hard to understand. rhe\ were 
not one "t" members. We found no difficulty in this task- designating the 
New World two "t" members as they would wish to be listed. 

David wrote "Attwater" in his will- -all of it written in lii> «iwn liantl - 
the last double "t" being his signature. 

There could be many nice things to say alidut our co-authors. However, 
they are all well-known in their respective occupations or coiinnunities. 

Dr. Reginald Atwater has been an executive of the American Me(li< a!

In addition to family members, the Author wishes In thank all nur

heretofore mentioned, our appreciation and thanks Id liiilli 1!. IJnberis for 
her final reading of the typesetter's completed pages. 

Last, but not least, to that talented young actress and artist, Alice Nobes 
Lunsford. for her continued interest and especially her artistic work on the 
Attwater Arms and Crest, which thru her aesthetic endea\ors is now in 
the homes of so many of our family members. 

Finally, may I call to the attention ol those mendiers inlereslcd in 
'Heraldry' the following facts. While the one we use in this Ndhinie i> llic 
best looking of the three Arms and Crests, attributed by Burke and nlhers 
to Attwater families, it has not l)een subjected to emblishmeni or (I(m idiiim 
by the artist, which has been the case with so nian\ nf the older ianiiK >\ nd)ois 
which are now offered to the public. The coloring by the artist has been taken 
from authentic records of the past. 

Even the motto— PATRIA CLARA CARIOR LIBERTAS (translated, 
'dear is countr\ but liberty is dearer still,' now used by some Atwater

(Editor's Note: As a young man, Elisha. my grandfather, established a 
large business as a ship-chandler. His quarters occupied an entire ware- 
house of three and one-half stories and basement on the corner of Burling 
Slip, New York City. Elisha also controlled a "Packet Line" between New 
York and North Florida. His interests were far-flung throut the world — 
as he outfitted ships for many distant lands. Financing many of these 
ventures made him a very wealthy man. Before he was forty years old, 
he sold out and retired. 

Later, Elisha acquired large properties in the Bronx and finally a 
very beautiful estate at Huntington, L. I. I have been told by one of the 
chief executives of the Telephone Company, that when the first dial 
system was being tested, his nanie — with the names of other prominent 
old families of New York — was picked for the experimental try-out of 
the new system. When I doubted this because my grandfather always 
used three '"t's" — the executive exclaimed: "Well, we just dropped one 
of them." 

My grandfather was not a teetotaler neither am I. However, I am 
convinced his record would be as clean as my own — for never having 
imbibed to the state of intoxication. He did have an elaborate wine cellar 
at Huntington. This, in the eyes of my good mother — bless her soul — was 
the work of the Devil. 

My father, Samuel Hobart, died five months before I was born. With- 
out having had the opportunity of placing my innocent childish clutches 
in the old gentleman's heart, he passed away when I was five, leaving me 
the mvmificent sum of one dollar. 

A high-hatted, slick lawyer, by the name of Rock, settled with the 
estate for sizable sums, over a foiu' year period, without my innocent 
mother being aware of the situation. While eventually, I had newspaper 
notoriety, when a judgment was secured against the lawyer and he was 
sent to jail — not even the dollar ever reached me or my mother. 

There were others involved. Besides, I don't know the old gentleman's 
side of the triangle. He should not be condemned without a hearing. 
Despite the odious memories attached to my paternal side, at eight years

The deceased was eighty-seven years of age, and is survived by his wife, 
Mrs. Antoinette Respess Atwater; one son. Capt. James F^. Atwater. and six 
daughters. Mrs. J. Hinry Smith, of Griffin; Mrs. Fred P'arris, of Atlanta; 
Mrs. George R. Turyin. of Macon; Mrs. William P. Leonard, of Talbotton; 
Mrs. Roland W. Spain, of New York city, and Mrs. A. J. King of Macon. 

Besides being one of the oldest and wealthiest of Thomaston citizens, he 
was one of the most prominent, influential and highly esteemed. Not only did 
he stand high in the affection of his home people but wherever he was known 
men respected and loved him. A citizen of another city who is one of the most 
prominent men in the state and who was a business associate of Captain 
Atwater's said of him: "Few men have lived to better purpose, or have had 
higher regard of their friends and acquaintances than Mr. Atwater." 

Captain .Atwater was a man of strong convictions and once he took a 
stand in a matter he was almost unshakable. It is said of him that above all 
things he despised a hypocrite and hated all manner of shams. He was also a 
man who loved his friends and would stop at nothing to aid them. There aie 
many wh(j owe their business success to his assistance and counsel. 

Captain Atwater .served through the Civil War with ihstinction. He was 
noted for his bravery in battle and his efficiency in military tactics, being 
made captain of five different companies to perfect their organization. Many 
of his comrades who are still living gratefully hear testimony to his valorous 
record. 

After the conflict ended he was active in the politics of ITp.son county 
serving as county commissioner for twelve years, during which terms of 
service he was one of the first men in the state to refuse a permit for a cross 
road saloon. 

Cai)tain Atwater was also one of the founders of the R. E. Lee Institute 
of Thomaston. and for twenty-three years acted as chairman for the board of 
trustei'S for that well known institution. 

For years Cajjtain Atwater was a leader in every movement looking to 
the upbuilding and betterment of his town and county.

called himself his pastor's assistant and it was true. He was far-seeing, clear 
cut in his processes of thought and of a philosophic turn of mind. One writer 
said of him: "I have always regarded Mr. At water as one of the most genuine 
Christians that I have ever known. He was ripe and ready for the gainer. 
Doubtless he had his defects, but all in all. I have known very few men who 
stood out and above the multitude as distinctly for Christ as he did. The 
spiritual stream of his life ran smooth and deep, and he never allowed the 
straws that floated upon the surface to disturb the serenity of its depths."

while way, as she walked along life's road. When, without any effort on her 
part, she was elected as first matron of the Methodist Orphanage at Raleigh,

N. C, she accepted, believing that her opportunity had conio. Later, when she 
gave hei- hand in maniage to Rev. J. \V. Jenkins, founder and superintendent 
of the orpiaanage, she knew that this was her hfe work, and together they 
worked with unceasing labor until, from a feeble beginning, the orphanage had 
grown into proportions that promised perpetuity. Then Mr. Jenkins laiti down 
his beautiful life, and bound more closely than ever to the product of their 
united efforts, she has mothered the little orphan children who have been 
denied the love and care of fathers and mothers, and brought to tht-m the 
light and joy of real home life. 

Slight, small, frail in body, but great in soul, Mattie Atwater Jenkins has 
given her whole life for the happiness of otheis. With a sympathetic mind, a 
hand skilled in helpfulness, a heart that loves wisely, an unusual measure of 
ability in managing and controlling she has shared the hopes and heartaches 
of hundreds of boys and girls who delight to call her mother, and in whose 
lives "Miss Mattie" is a beacon light. She d. Oct. 28. 1925. 

2961. James Bobbitt, son of Jehiel; m. Nov. 17, 1878, Nellie Eastwood 
Page. He is a farmer, merchant and cotton buyer. From childhood Mr. Atwater 
has been an indefatigable and conscientious worker. Han(Hcapped by frail 
health in his early young manhood, he worked on amid difficulties. After 
taking a business course he became, when quite young, bookkeeper for the 
Odell Manufacturing Co. at his home. From that time on he has filled 
responsible positions in church, state and business, representing his county in 
the legislature and his church in every important position a layman can hold. 

Mr. Atwater married Miss Nell Page, who comes of a distinguished and 
representative family. She is a cousin and foster sister of the amhas.sa<lor. 
Hon. Walter Page. They have eight children, four of whom are living. Tlic 
oldest son volunteered in the world war. 

He received an academic education in coimty schools in Chatham, and 
took a business course at Eastman National Business College, Poughkeepsie, 
N. Y. Spent most of his life at Bynum, his present home, serving fii-st the 
Bynimi I\Tanufacturing Co., cotton manufacturers, as bookkeeper, later book- 
keeper and general manager, for the J. M. Odell Manufacturing Co., operating 
cotton mill and general store. Now engaged in mercantile business and operat- 
ing roller mill and ginnery. In public matters he has seived his county as 
county commissioner, member of board of education, representative in the 
state senate, member of the "Local Exemption Board" in 1917-18. and "Chair- 
man of County Board of Equalization" under "New Valuation Act," 1919. In
