INTRODUCTION. 

In preeenting tliis Boynton OeDealogv to the public, the compiler 
does so with a great deal uf diffidence, feeling her inability to make it 
what it would have been under the direction of the bruin power thnt 
began it, but fealty to the dear departed has prompteil itM completion, 
and she sends it forth, trusting to the kindness of those who (HJiiiHe itn 
pages to overlook its imperfections. 

In the arrangement of the genealogy she has striven to follow the 
plan considered best by the Historical Society in Boston. 

In many instances records have been received with different dates, 
sometimes different names, or names meaning the same but si>elled 
differently, in all such cases, after due deliberation those which seem 
most credible, have been retained, strict attention having been given 
at all times to verified records. 

When the publication was begun, in the spring of 1897, it whs 
with the intention of printing only the first five generations, with 
historical and biographical sketches, but when it was found imixwsible 
to complete it in season for the annual Boynton convention, it wa« 
deemed best to add enough to extend it to the preijent generations, 
and thereby make the book much more desirable Many of the re- 
cords were sent to Doctor Boynton in 1H83 and 1884. and from a large 
majority of families no additions have been received, while in a few 
instances the last bom has been quickly announceil, therefore due 
allowance must be made for the lapse of a decade in some lines, that 
might otherwise seem a little mixed. 

The "Arms de Boynton" is represented in true heraldic colors, and 
exactly as Sir Henry Somerville Boynton,— the present Baronet— is 
using it, save the "label" immediately beneath the helmet, which is 
omitted, as it was used simply to "distinguish the difference of the 
eldest son," 

In the search for records many Genealogies and Town Histories 
have been consulted, and wherever the name Boynton found, it has 
been copied. In all such cases due appreciation has been felt, and is 
hereby acknowledged. The conjpilei embraces this opportunity, 
to extend her thanks to each, and all. who hav5 in any mnnruT 
encouraged and aiisisted in the work of compilation.

Some fifty yearx a«^o, the late Kdniond Hoynton, of Bon-

In 16!n the Stale of Religion in England wan growing worse and 
worse; for the Arch-nish(>p pei-secuted the Puritans with the utmost 
Rigour, opinossing them in all tinarters of the Land, and encouraging 
the scum of the People to turn informers against them. 

The Ecclesiastical Authority being screwed up to such a height, and 
the |K)int of it «lirected chielly against the Puritans, 'tis no wonder 
that vast nund)ers, both Ministers and People, transported themselves 
to New Knglnnd. "till the (iovernment at length to»)k umbrage at it, 
and published a Proclamation bearing date April the anth, 1037, "To 
restrain the ilisordeily traiispi.rtin;,' of his Majesty's Subjet>ts to the

XVIII HISTORY OF THE BOTHTOM KAMILT. 

The crescent, or new inooii. han be**!! an honoralile 8>'Dibol, em- 
plojed by many of the eoHtern nations, and ftarticularly by the 
SaracenH and Turks, lience, tlie coiiqueMtH of the Chrintian leaden 
over the MohnmuuMJanN duriiiK tlie Holy want have given rise to the

the autumnnl l'^iuiti()x, when seen in Syria and other regions near the 
northern tropin, tliat i», with her horns toward tiie Zenith. 

In storming Jerusalem, the Christians, at length, by their un- 
daunted valour, made themselves masters. Thi.s memorable event 
ttx>k place on Friilay. the I'tth of July, l()9y, a dav of the week, it 
appears, which in that superstitious jige was ct)nsidere<i to be of no 
Hiiuili importance: f«<r Adam was created uj)on the sixth day (Friday): 
Christ wa.s crucilietl on a Friday, and on Friday wju* achieved the third 
important event in the annals of the world, the establishment of the 
Christian standard in the "Holy City." Und()ubte<lly the goat was 
assumeil for a crest by the Hoyntons during the Crusades, as imlica- 
live of their undaunted courage. Guillim wrote "the goat is tiot so 
Iianly a-s {Ktlitick. therefore, tliat martial man wliich useth more 
policy than valour in achieving his victor^-, nmy very aptly bear for his 
coat armour this beast." "It is probable that some pecular virtue was 
implietl by theera.scd hea«l of the goat, for ancient heraMs «ay. that 
alchymists a-'serted the blood of a goat would soften the diamond.' 
Sylvanus Morgan says "The goat nuiy betoken one who is willing to 
fare hard, so he may be in high employment honorwi."

ehMjuenlly explained to thousands, a ;reneration later. The 
first he kn<'w that rocks had names, was one evenin^r at the 
JMjys lycenni : they had en<ra;:cd lienjaniin Greenleaf, A. M. 
(author of the **XationaI Aritlnnetic)" to come (h)wn from

nnicli pleasure in descriiiin^ to their attentive minds the 
familiar stony products, and ^ave their varied names and 
classifications. 

Vianijr ilohn was <|uick to al»sorI) all the old mathemati-

westwani, to learn somethin;: of the ;rreat world In'yond his 
nativ»» state, and was not satisfied until he reached the Miss- 
issippi, a "rreat journey for that period. Soon after his re- 
tui'U he he;;an the practice of dentistry, and here I will (juote 
from a letti-r of his, written to a fiiend in 1>S><4. ''While 
vi>ilinL^ in Sahin, Massachusetts in the thirties, I called on 
Dr. Peahody, wiio I think ha<l just returned from Kn«:land. 
Hi' was the first dentist I had ever seen, and he kindly al- 
lowed me t(» examine his instruments, and witness his o|K'r- 
ati«»ns, saying he Mhouirht I would make a skillful dentist.' 
In a few days I returned to my native town, and assisted in 
the manufacture of a set of instruments. With these I 
<>perat<'d for many years, and after I had obtained extensive 
sets of instruments, would fr<M|uently return to the old ones, 
as they would apply in many cases In'tter than the new ones 
that others had made. Between 1m;J.'> and 1S.')() I o|K'rated 
in nearly all of the wesfjin and southern states,"

And sink to sleep, in the ^'reat sea-deep, '

They sailed all day, throujrh creek and \my\ 
And tra versed the ocean deep ; 
And at nijrht they hank on a coral hank. 
In their fair\' lK>wer8 to sleep! 

And the monsters vast, of ajres past, 
They iK'hcld in their ocoan caves ; 
They naw them ri<le in tlieir |M)wer and pri<le. 
And sink in their deep sea jrraves. 

Thus hand in hand, from strand to strand. 
They sailed in mirth and jrlee ; 
Those fair}' shells, with their crv'^tal cells. 
Twin sisters of the sea. 

Hut they came at last, to a sea lonjr past. 
And as they reu<hed its shores, 
The Almi;rhty's breath M|M)ke out in death. 
And the Ammonite lived no more ! 

80 the Nautilus now, in its shelly prow. 
As over the deep it strays ; 
Still seems to seek, in hay and cnn^k. 
Its companion of other days. 

And alike do we, on life's stormy sea, 
As we roam from shore to shore ; 
Thus, tem|)e8t tost, seek the lov(»d and h»st. 
But find them on earth no more. 

Yet the hojK) how sweet, a;rain U* meet. 
As we look to a distant strand. 
Where heart meets heart, no more to part. 
Who meet in that l)etter land.'*

tated, stMitenee l»y senteiue, wliik* in the aet of paintinir a

It was his hraiii that di-viscd the scheme hy which the

went directly to Syracuse, to consult with Doctor lioynton, 
and while there they laid the plans which he returned to 
Lincoln. 

After a few days Dr. Hoynton joined Cashing at the 
lirooklyn Navy Yard, and together they watched the con- 
struction of two armed torpech) lM>ats, on the completion of 
whii'li, the Doctor nanu'd one the Manetta, and his eldest 
daughter, doscphine, tiamed the other the Chautau(|ua. They 
experimented with them in the Hudson and Kast rivers, to

HI8T0BT OP THE BOTNTOM FAMILT. 

FROM THE HON. MILLARD FOXMORE. 
"Hi* manner of lecturing is much more attractive for being oral 
Instead of written, and much more inntructive to the popular mind 
by being divested of all the technicalities of science, and brought 
down in plain, familiar language to the comprehension of all. The 
lectures derive additional inU^rest from the splendid views with 
whlchthey are illustrated, many of which are not only beautiful as 
works of art. but very instructive in presenting peculiar landscape 
views and geological formations of the earth. I cannot doubt that 
hU lectures, which are delivered with that earnest enthusiiism pe 
cular to one whoso heart is in his subject, must be useful wherever 
they are delivered, and believing this. I cheerfully commend them to 
the patronage of my friends.

The Farmer's club met at the rooms of the Business Men's Associa- 
tion this morning. The following resolution, offered by Wallace 
Tappan, was unanimously adopted: 

Resolved, That in the death of the late Dr. John Boynton, who was 
a devoted member of this club, we have loHt a citizen whose wealth of 
Hcientitic attuiniiiontH, general knowledge and practical Inventive 
geniuH were of the higlieHt Mtandurd, duly apprcciuttd by bin many 
friendnand devotcc« of ncicnce throughont the country. We sin- 
cerely deplore hiH departure from among uh, feeling thot few men 
jMfRhesH the great knowledge he had uc(iuired covering a periinl of 
more than half a century. We remember him as an original, vigor- 
ous, intellectual man. studiously devoted to science and the welfare 
of the human race: a friend of progressive agriculture and n lecturer 
of rare al>ility. As a tribute to his memory and praiseworthy etforts 
in behalf of practical science and invention, we deem it fittingly 
projK'r and expressive of our sincere appreciation of Dr. Coynton and 
his life work that this resoluti<»n of respect be passed hy this society 
and spread on the minutes of the club and a copy be sent to his 
family. 

A tribute on the life and character of Doctor Boynton was read by

TRIBUTE TO HIS MEMORY BY F. M. TERRY. 

"Dr. John F. Boynton dead ! In the zenith of his fame and power 
he has reached his journey's end. In speaking words of prai/te and 
love above his dnnt we pay a tribute to ourselves, llow poor this 
world would be without its gravis, witl.out the nun.ory of our 
mighty dead. Our citizens should honor this brave and generous man. 
A millionaire in brains, the intellectual autocrat of his day. Fortu- 
nate is the man great enough to know the great. 

In the presence of death we should ju<lge as we would bo judge<l. 
We know that men are only fragments, that the greatest walk in 
shadow, and that faults and failures niingle with the lives of all. In 
the grave should be buried the prejudices and the passions bom of 
conflict; charity should hold the scales in which are weighed the 
dee^lf* of u>eM. 



IXXII HIHTORY or THE BOmTOJC rAMILT. 

John F. Boynton breathed the atmo«phere of inveMtlKatlon. Nolh- 
ing e(»caiMHl hln attention. Born n ^rwat man, hi* reHtIe«« npirlt led 
him into every field of Hcience, art iind letten*. He relied \i\wn evl- 
denco, on demonstration, ujwn experience. Ue endeavored to ex- 
amine only that which woh cuptt»»lo of hcinj< exainineti. He Imd a 
brain full of tha dawn, the head of a philoMopher, nnd hiti inventive 
genius lo<l him into every field of scientific Htudy. His attention won 
forever turned towanl thinj^s tiiat were to benefit his fellow men. 
Such men I love. In them we find the estimates of greatness, the 
deeds and lives that challen>;e praise and thrill the hearts of men. 

Ah citizen of our county, he became a part of its iijrowth and pro- 
gresM, His life and clmrncler have been woven nt\^\ interwoven in 
her adversity and prosperity, from a village u|>on the bunk of a canal 
to acity of a(lluen<'e ami power. In his and our liv<'s have been the 
gramlest years tliuL men have liveil. And when I think of a lltim- 
boldt, aTyndall, a Huxley, a Hpenct-r, a Darwin, a Mills, a Uoynton, 
there are no words iniense enou;;;h, with heart enough, with love 
enough, to express my admiration for those great men that have 
lived and labort^l for tli«'ir Hllow nu-n. Notliing <-an be grander than 
to HOW the seeds of noble thoughts, to earn the grateful homage of 
our race, and then in life's last sliadi>wy hour, to h»ok back over u 
well-spent life and know that the world is the Ix-tter f<u- our living. 
It is not my purpose to pronounce any exten«led eulogy u|>on the 
charac'ter and life ami servici-s <»f the man whose <leath we so pro- 
foundly re^^ret. No euK)gies. no words of prai.se. no arch of victory, 
no moniimental pile to endear bim to our peojde. The story of his 
useful and honornble life ilhnuin«'H the brightest pact's in our know- 
Ie<lge, an<l the fr\iilsof his iiiceshant labors, rea«l and known of all men. 
give lustre to his name, and will perpetuate his memory. How much 
1 have enjoyed his many «lis«iissioiis with our Farmers' clul». He wjis 
always a welcome messenger anti bis words were full of scientific in 
vestigation. Not only may we assiK-iate bis name with the great 
scientists of ancient and nxxleni times, but we may more truly asso- 
ciate it with tlie great invcntois of the tdneteenth centuiy. Few 
men posst'ssed siich a womb iTul rondiination of brain. Few men 
stand a peer to John F. IJoynion. He knew that science is knowle«lge 
of the laws «»f life, of the c«)n«lit ions of bappiiu'ss, of the facts by 
which we are sunoumled, njeans by which man h>il»jugates nat\ire 
and bends the elenjental powei-s to our will, njsiking blind force the 
servant of his brain. The Doctor was a i-hemist and in the crucible 
of scit'n(M< new truths were «liscovere<l, and by |lie micri»stope and 
telescope new worlds. Kverywlu-re and in everything he found the 
inlinite; in every dinn'tion he investigattsl and e.\plore<l. He was the 
mlvmnitoof in<iuiry, the invest ig.-j tor of the unknown. He never 
stopped until he «lid know. What be knew be diseovereil by that

Dr. John F. Boynton had within the last three years patenttsl and

•*lt is with pleasiue that 1 add my testimony to what has already 
been said in regard to the many high and noble qualities of our de- 
c«*ased Ill-other and kiiisniaii, John Farnham Boynton. Although my 
pers«nial ac<|uaintaiice w ith him was not oo long as with many of you, 
yet there were ill it many pleasing features. Mutually attracted to- 
wards each other in the beginning, by both iK'ing interested in the 
gemalogy and history of our petiple, the bond of frieiulship grew 
r.ipidly until •.evered by death Ripened in yeai-s, and fully prepared 
fir another stale of existence, he has pas.se<l on to enjoy the reward 
;if a well spent life on earth 1 shall e\er hold in kind remembrance 
th.' s\aim and Iralernal relations formed in oui association with him.

in nunlenitely goini eircunistanees. ludge lloynton grew up on ilu' farm, 
and iiTeiveti only sueli etlueatlon as eould be obtained at tlie " old Field" 
}*ch«K)l8 of tlie day, a few montlts eaeli year after laylng-by time. Tlje 
hot Idood of his youtli wa.s set on lire by reading of tlie lieroie deedi* of 
our eliivalrous fiti/ens-s(»ldlery during tlie Mi'xiean war, and lie was in- 
spired by un anil>ition to secure an appointment to N\ est I'oint and enter 
the army. Aeeordingly, in 1S4U, he entered ujt<»n a prejtaratory course 
of study, but in N«»veinber <d that year ids fatlier «lie«i leaving him a

there lie found the money be had barely enough to support him two 
years, while lie could not graduate in le>s than ibiee \ear>. This was a 
crushing blow to his ambition, and he ul>andoned bis object. His thirst 
for knowledge ami higber and nobler aspliations of liis nature ni'vcr 
deserted him. (ioing to Cave .spring?", near jfoine, he ent<'red Hearne'H 
.Scliotd and remained there until his exclie(|uer was exbau*t«'d, when he 
was com|Hdled to lay aside his books and seek employment. Uelurning 
to McDonougb. he ai'i«-pted a proposition made by Ttd. I.. I', hoyal,

Oft the heart and soul will sway, 
And our Hoynton blood has (juickened 

To rospond to you to-day. 
Wo have hoard the roll-call sounded 
Whoro our Kastern tlooits unfold, 
And tho ooho has ros|>ondod 

From I ho Western grates of jrold. 
From «)nr N'orthorn towns and cities, 
From our mountains' cool arcades. 
From our Sjuithcrn vales and villas, 

From her orantre jrroves an<l «rlades. 
Comes the word that makes us kindred- 
Children of a nol)le l>lood ; 
And we Mess the tie that hinds us 

To the H(»ynton brotherhood! 
Tis a word I love to utter, 

*Tis a name I love to hear, 
ThoULdi its sylla))les are softened 
Sometimes by a >tartinL' t«'ar ; 
Twa> a W(»nl I learned to falter 
At a Iovin;r irrand^ire's knee. 
And a name I Icanicil to honor 

From my earliest memory. 
Twas the name my saintly mother. 

In hor ^loldrn girlluxKl bore. 
Ami her ehlest son received it 

With the jrrace her spirit wore. 
I have left my loved ones sleeping 

In the Empire State afar; 
Hut the pa>t is in our keeping, 

An<l its portals oft ajar. 
Now again I hear the story. 

As my memory goes back. 
How my gnn\dsire strolled ait evening 
By the limi)id Menimac ;

Hefcrring to No 10, on \n\*re 8. The fact hiis not yet 
Ikjcu cstublishod, Imt it .scenw credible, that the nunicn>UH 
Uyinjrton families in Hranford, Ct., dcHcendcd from John* 
Hoynton, wlio was l)ai)t. in Nmvlmry, Mass., Apr. 11), H)76. 
He was piobably the John in Bmnford, who married Jane 
Swain, therefore we will cotitinue the «;^enerations from them. 
The names are copied as written on tlie Branford Church 
records of momhership and marriajres. 

Jane noin«rton, who joine<l the church in 17()«, wat» 
prohahly tlie wife of John. Mary l^)in<^on joined in Feb., 
1710; Kobeit Hoyinjrton joined in 1715; Daniel lioington 
joined in Se})t. 171^. These were undoubtedly children of 
John" and Jane, and jis John Jr. was maiTied in 1735, he 
was evidently the first son. There was also a Jcmathan, a 
David and a Daniel, whose ages indicate they belonged to 
the same family.

of the minister of the parish, wlio pive her instruelion in 
hranehes not then tau«rht in th(> sehools, and kindly allowen 
her the use of his lihrary. At the a^e of sixteen, slio Uv 
lanie a teaeher, and for nuiny years, while instruetinjr others 
was eonstantiv a<ldinir to her own attainments, and tittin;: 
herself for the hijrher tlutics of life; so, wlaMi in after ViMirs 
the edueation of tiu'ee Iwns, and throe jrirls Invame tho 
prohlcm for her to solve, she was e(|ual to the oceasion. 

Industrious, frujral, encrp'tic, solf-dcnyin*:, prayerful, 
witli small means and many privations, all were sent to 
school, neatly cla<l, providecl with lK)oks, ete, Two lM)ys 
were sent to l)ai1 mouth Col le«r«' and two ^^irls to the Ik'sI 
female seminaries of the time, all of whom suhse(|uently 
ln'came successful teachers. 

She was symmetrically develoj)cd, physically, mentally, 
and spiritually ; worked hard hut never worried. ♦*lt is all 
for the iK'st." **The darkest day, live till tomorrow, will 
have passed away.'' **Not my will hut Thiiu' he done." 
Such were some of her favorite expressions, and in this 
spirit of **charity for all, and malice towards none" she won 
many fri<'nds, and left no enemies behind. To this unwav- 
ering faith, coura^re, fortitude, and a serene cheerfulness 
that enahled her to surmount every trial and atllictiou, we 
nnist attril)utc her lon^ and us(»ful life. She kept U|) her 
con*e>iKmdence almost to the last, and on her one hundred 
and tirst aiuniversary wrote her auto<rraph for several of her 
visitors. She died in Pep|)erell, April 14, 1.HS2, a;r*'d one 
hundn'd and om^ years, seven months and four days.
