I believe every person in the world named Candee is 
descended from Zaccheus Cande, found in xS^ew Haven, 
Connecticut, in 1670. If any person who sees this book 
will send me such information as they may have of 
male or female descendants, in addition to that herein, 
I will see that it is preserved for the use of every inter- 
ested person. My sketches of the individual Candees 
are brief, partly because they have been a quiet, though 
a very reputable race, and partly because, at my distance 
from Connecticut, minute study of them is not easy. 

My thanks are due to the following persons, not con- 
nected with the family : Rev. Samuel Orcutt, of l^ew 
Milford, Connecticut; Alvan Talcott, M. D., of Guil- 
ford, Connecticut; Hon. L. M. Boltwood, of !N'ew Haven, 
Connecticut; and Dr. Joseph C. Pynchon, of Spring- 
field, Massachusetts. Other acknowledgments will be 

found in the text.

All have a number by which they can be traced, backward and for-

heavy type, and is followed by a plus mark. Thus, on page seven 
we find: 

5. ^amwtl, born July 24, 1678 + 

His family and further history is on page 11. 


1. 3acrljJJU0 ffaitb^, settled in Kew Haven, Con- 
necticut. His name is spelled in the early records 
Kembee, Kambee, Canbee, Candee, but generally Cande. 
When married, he is called Cambee ; his wife, Bristow. 
His daughter Rebecca is daughter of Kembee ; Zaccheus 
is son of Candee ; Abigail, daughter of Cande. His 
children are generally called Cande. His grandson Sam- 
uel appears in New Haven Probate Eecords as Candy — 
so far as I know, a solitary instance. In the Town Eec- 
ords of Stratford, Vol. 1, page 69, is a deed from Thomas 
Sherwood to John Burritt, witnessed by Zaccheus Canby 
or Conby. It is perhaps impossible, at this date, to tell 
whether a or o was intended. The other witness is 
Daniel Gun. The deed is dated May 17, 1675, and 
marked: "Exactly recorded from y^ originall." 

On his tombstone, still extant in West Haven, he is 
called Zachariah: "Here lies y"-' body of Mr. Zachariah 
Cande, died 1720, aged 80 years." By his side lies his 
wife : " Here lies y'^ body of Mrs. Rebekali Canbe, wife 
of Mr. Zachariah Cande, died Sepf'y*^ 22^»'1739, aged 91 
years." This would make him born about 1640. He 
tirst appears iu New Haven, as marrying, December 5, 
1670, Rebecca Bristow, daughter of Henry Bristow, or 
rather Bristol, of New Haven. She was born February

4, 1650, and age overdated on her tombstone — a circum- 
stance not unusual. 

Mr. Orcutt (from her tombstone no doubt) says she 
died September 22, 1739, aged 91. Zaccheus lived and 
died in West Haven, probably at the southeast corner 
of the Green, where, down to a late day, remained the 
dwelling of his son Samuel. They had children: 

3. Rebecca, born December 22, 1671. 

3. Hannah, bom November 14, 1673. 

4. 3arcl)rU0, born January 5, 1674. + 

5. Samurl, born July 24, 1678. + 

6. Mary, born February 18, 1680. 

7. Desyer, born October 20, 1686. ^ 

8. Abigail, born April, 1689. 

William L. Candee, Esq., of Milwaukee, says in refer- 
ence to the name (March, 1879 :) " I early wrote my name 
with one e. In 1814, I was a Surgeon in the army sta- 
tioned at Kew York, where many pronounced my name 
Kand ; and to oblige them to make two syllables of it. 
I added an extra e. I think my cousin, Sheldon Candee, 
did the same. He met, some years since, a gentleman 
of Dutch descent, whose ancestors went from France 
and to the Huguenots. He considered the name Cande 
the same as that of his ancestors. 

William L. states, in a subsequent letter, that the 
tradition he got from his father and uncles — all of 
whom he knew, except Gideon — was, that two brothers 
came from England (not Scotland), and stopped at 
Hartford. One went South; the other remained, which 
may be the Zaccheus Cande at New Haven, or his 


father : and that there were persons named Cande 
liviug in Charleston in 1820, not known as of this 
family. The name is variously written, and he has 
seen letters from his uncle spelled dy. He hases the 
French descent, not on tradition, but on '^historical 
facts.'* He thinks, though they came from England, 
thev Avere not Euo^lishmen. He remembers hearins: 
nothing of the tradition as to nationality from his 
father or his uncles. He thinks there is also a na- 
tional resemblance. There seems little direct evidence 
as to the national orio^in of the familv. From the s^en- 
eral impression in the family, that the ancestor, though 
likely from Eugland. was there from France, either 
himself or his ancestors, as Huguenot refugees : from the 
unusual form of the uame, the ib^I^' wa3'S in which it 
is spelled, as if it were a foreign name, I am inclined to 
think the general view of the o^ngin of the family cor- 
rect — excluding, of course, all belief in the descent from 
Prince de Conde, etc., etc."^ 

In possession of Mrs. Adeline Weir, of Xew Haven, 
(daughter Levi." Caleb,"*) is a coat of arms, with the 
following inscription, quoted verbatim: 

* ' The family of Candy is of French extraction. Jean ile Candee, a 
* ' ' friend and. follower of the celebrated Admiral of France, Coligny, was 

*I learn from Dr. J. C. Smith, that in Hanson's "Old Kent," in Maryland, is the follow- 
ing: "Alexander Contee, who with his uncle John Contee emijrrated to Maryland, and 
settled in Prince Georg^e's County. Alexander Contee, bapt. 'ye 22 day of April, 1G08, 
was the son of Peter and Catharine Contee, who lived in Barnstable, Devonshire, England. 
The family came originally from Rochelle, France, and being Protestants, emigrated to 
England during the reign of Louis XIV. Adolph de Contee w^as High Sheriff of London 
and Middlesex, in 1643." 


' ' with him at the period of the massacre of St. Bartholomew (1573), and 
' ' was among the very few Protestants who escaped that butchery. He 
' ' went to England, and was provided for by Queen Elizabeth (1558- 
' ■ 1603). His grandson, John Candee, came to the New England Colony 
" in 1639, and settled at Boston, whence he removed to Windsor in 1650. 
" The arms are argent (white); a lion rampant azure (blue), holding an 
"escallop shell or (gold), in chief three golphs (red balls); crest, a stag's 
' ' head, erased (tore off), ermined horned, on gold. The lion rampant 
' ' shows that an ancestor had been commander during a victory ; the 
" escallop shell shows it to have been during the Crusades in Palestine." 
piade for Adeline Candee Weir, of Xew Haven, by a guest of the 
house, from records she furnished. ] 

In Burke's "General Armory," I liud arms Coiidie, 
ar. 3 cinque foils in pale gu, between two palets azure, 
on a chief vert a lion pass, of the field. Crest: on a 
ducal coronet or, a lion pass, azure. 

These arms are enough like Mrs. Weir's to suggest 
the source whence her's came.* 

The name Candy is not unknown in England. It is 
common in Philadelphia; and I have met another family 
one from near Manchester, in England. Mr. Lower, in 
his book on "Surnames," derives Candy from an island 
in Essex. It is doubtful whether one will ever be able 

* In an old volume of the "New England Genealo^dcal Reg^ister" is a note from the late 
A. J. Skilton, M.D., Troy, New York, as follows: 

"It is traditionally stated that the Candee family of New England is of French extrac- 
tion. It has been said that the family is descended from John Condy, who resided in or 
near Boston from 1639 to 1650, and then left for Connnecticut ; that he was a grandson of 
Jean de Conde, a soldier under Admiral Coligny. I am de.sirous to know if there is any 
record showing an older member of the family than Samuel Condy (or Candy), of Marble- 
head, 1664." 

I have failed to find any evidence of this tratlitioii, unless that part which makes the 
family originally of French extraction. 


to trace the Candees to their origin ; but the many 
varieties to the name, and the non-English form of it, 
give color to tlie tradition that they were French, prob- 
ably tlirono^h Eno:land. Traditions tend to fasten on to 
great names. 

In Saratoga county, Xew York, is a family of Conde, 
not related to the Candees that I find. Albert Conde, 
of Charlton, died October 1, 1850, leaving a widow, and 
children Jesse, Daniel T., Henry S.; a daughter, formerly 
wife of Ichabod L. Judson ; Eliza Jones; Catharine 
McKnight ; Hester, wife of Melancthon Belding ; and 
Alida Ann Wakeman, and a grandchild, daughter of 
Susan Spencer. 

The New York Tribune, of June 8, 1877, says: 

"The venerable Mr. de Coude, who died on Tuesday, at Ballston, at 
"the age of 84, was a lineal descendant of the Bourbon Prince de Coude. 
"He was born in the town of Charlton, and has always lived in the county 
' ' of Saratoga, where he was known and appreciated as an intelligent and 
" useful citizen." 

4. 3itrcljrU0," Zaccheus,^ born in West Haven, Con- 
necticut, January 5, IQlj. It appears, by New Haven 
Records, that he married, iS'ovember 19, 1702, Sarah 
Lane.* He settled in Middletown, Connecticut, where 
he died, December 29, 1743, aged 67. His wife Sarah 
died there, September 30, 1737. Her epitaph is: "Here 
lies the body of Sarah, y^' wife of Zacheus Cande, who 

* Was she Sarah, born September 29, 1678, clauj^hter of Isaac, of Middletown, 1669, who

These children appear in Middletown, although it 
would seem that he must have been the Zaecheus in 
West Haven in 1729. The name of Zaccheus appears 
frequently, although not so often as Samuel. 

5. 5<llUUrl," Zaccheus,^ born in West Haven, Con- 
necticut, July 24, 1678. He lived and died in West 
Haven, at the southwest corner of the Green, a beautiful 
location, as Rev. Mr. Orcutt very rightly says. His dwell- 
ing was taken down in 1877. The first entry in West 
Haven about him is in 1729, when Captain Samuel and 
Zaccheus Candee, with several others, each gave six shil- 
lings to have the church bell rung at nine o'clock every 
night. His name appears on almost every page after this. 
Many times it was stated, that on account of the severe 
cold, it was voted to adjourn the Society meetings from 
the church to Captain Candee's home. He it was (says 
Miss Alice Candee) w^ho also gave half the beautiful 
green, where our church now stands, to the Congre- 
gational Societv, for the sake of having the "meeting 
house" built there, instead of another part of the town 
where many wanted it.

He died October 10, 1710. He was likely son of Nicholas Pinion, of Lynn, 1647; perliaps

at the iron works. By wife Elizabeth, who died in 1667, he had Ruth, Hannah, Mary, 
Thomas and Robert, and died April, 1676. His inventory was only £43, but (says Savage) 
that was a season of extreme depression. The spelling (Pinion) is Dodd's, but Sylvester 
Judd read it Pineon. Kuth married at Lynn, December 28, 1657, James Moore. The name

' We take the followin<;r from the Army and Xary Jnurna/, March 27, 1S80: 
"A family which has been represent€<l in the Army and Navy of the United States from 
the verj- earliest periotl in the history of this coinitry, furnishes one of the curiosities of 
longevity which is worthy of mention. Early in the sixteenth century, a Ilufpaenot family 
of the same name as the ^eat Conde, fled from France and took up their residence in Scot- 
land. One of the family afterwards emijrrated to America and .^ettlecl in Connecticut. He 
had a son Zacheus Conde, born in New Haven in 1640, from whom all those bearing the 
name of Candee in this countrj- are descended. It was a hardy race of a mixture of 
Huguenot and Puritan, and they live<l principall}- in the township of Oxford, in New Haven 
county. One of them, Caleb by name, marrietl, in 1742, Lf>is Mallory, and of this marriage 
were Iwm nine sons, one of whom reached the age of 94, three of them 87, one ^, one 83, 
one 76, one 70, and one 69; an average of a little more than 82 years. The youngest of 
these sons was the grandfather of the late Daniel Clark and of Cyrus H. Clark, of New 
York, and of Mrs. Mary Hazen, of Brooklyn. The seventh son, Neheniiah, was the grand- 
father of General Innis Palmer and Major George W. Candee, Paymaster U. S. Army, and 
the great-grandfather of Mr<. Dr. Walter K. Schofield, of the Na^y, and many citizens 
of New York and vicinity. He ha*l ten children who lived to mature age. Three of them, 
viz: Mr. W. L. Candee, of Milwaukee, now i?i his 89th year; Mrs. Susan Palmer, mother of 
General Palmer, in her sWth year; and Mr. G. W. Candee, of New York, in his 87th year. 
Those of this family who have <lied attained the ages respei-tively of 92. 90, 82, 76, 74, .t6 
and 53 years. The average age of those who ha\ e diefl was about 75 \ ears, and the average 
age of those still liWng is a little more than 88 years. The average age of the two genera- 
tions, viz;^the families of Caleb and Nehcmiah (nineteen children) would be now about 80 
years and 3 months. All of the children of Caleb were boru subjects of Great Britain, 


six hundred and seventy-five pounds. It is said that sum did not pay 
liim, and the embarrassment caused him to sell out and remove to

and all of them, we believe, served in the Revolutionary Annj'. Neheniiah, the ancestor of 
those of his family who are now in the service, served at Ticonderoga when blufif old Ethan 
Allen was in command of the forces in that vicinity, and some of his sons served in the 
army durinj,' the war of 1812. It is remarkable that the s:reat a?e which was attained by 
nearl.v all of the nineteen children and the parents of the two jrenerations was, with one 
or two exceptions, unaccompanied by the loss of bo<lily or mental faculties. Those of them 
who attained the frreatest ajre were in full possession of their bodily health and their power 
of enjoyment of the world up to a few days before their passing away; and all this in spite 
of the hard toil incident to the clearing up of farms in a new country. Soon after the close 
of the Revolutionary War, several of the sons of Caleb Candee emigrated from Oxford and 
settled in what was then the wilderness of New York. In 1793, Mrs. Palmer's father settled 
in the town of Gahvay, Saratoga county, a few miles from Saratoga Springs. It was a 
heavily-timbered country, the home of the bear and the deer. The sons were too young 
^o assist the father in ilearing away sufHcient ground on which to place a log house, but 
the men of the little colony helped each other at their "house raisings," and soon comfort- 
able cottages, or rather log cabins were in reailiness for the pioneers from Connecticut. 
Here were passed some of the happiest day c) of the lives of this singularly long lived family: 
and when, about thirty-five jears after the erection of the old log house, it was known that 
"Squire Candee" had sold the old farm, there were bitter tears shed b}' strong men and 
women, who, while scattered in e\ er\ direction, had the wannest place in their hearts for 
the dear old home in Saratoga. Wc have noticed, in this sketch, only the descendants of 
one of the nine sons of Caleb Candee. The families of the other brothers, while not so 
remarkable, were wonderful for iinnibers, viiror ami longcvitv. 


descendants say, Elizabeth Churchill, a Scotch lady. 
He lived at Middletown, Upper Homer, now Cromwell, 
Connecticut. None of the name are left there. He mar- 
ried 2"^' May 24, 1776, Mary Couvers, of Brookline, 
Massachusetts. I know no more of him.

Theophilus is said to have been in the Revolution. After 
the war ended, he sold his farm in *' Upper Houses," 
it is said, for $8,000, Continental money. With §4,000 
he bought a farm in Canaan, Connecticut, and the other 
$4,000 ''died on his hands.*" He moved to Sheffield 
Connecticut, and the last of the three farms he owned 
has been in the famil v nearly a century.

"Mr. Candee became a clerk in Waterville in 1815. In 1825, lie

' ville, in the store which he occupied from that time with his brother- 
' in-law, William R. Osborn, and his son, William B. Candee, until his 
'death. He was in many respects a model man. He was Clerk of the 
' Presbyterian Church, and most of the time its Treasurer, fr jm 1852 
' until his death. He was Trustee of several useful Corporations. He 
'was the only surviving Director of the first Board of the Bank of 
' Waterville, chosen in 1838 its first Vice President, and for twenty 
' two years its President. He was a Member of the Constitutional 
' Convention of the State of New York, in 1846. He was dignified and 
' unselfish, enjoying respect and confidence; tender, patient and forgiv- 
' ing ; full of cheerfulness, and occasional humor. Year after year he 
' was the same. He was active in business for fifty-one years, saying it 
' was ' better to wear out than to rust out ;' and he continued in this with 
' as much seeming interest and pleasure as when young. Restless after 
' retiring, he rose at two and partiall}' dressed himself, and sat in his 
' rocking-chair. After a little, he said he felt better and fell a.sleep. 
' When he fell asleep in death no one knew."

of Troy, ^ew York. He was son of James"* and Chloe 
(Steel) Avery Skilton.-^ The Troy Daily Times, of March 
22, 1858, has an obituary of Br. Skilton. Xo one would 
seem to deserve more. He was l>orn in Watertown, 


Connecticut, February 1, 1802. His great-grandfather 
was the first physician in the vicinity, and he kept the 
mortar and pestle used by the physician of so many 
years before. 

He had an early aptitude for study. He was always 
in advance of his class. Having a disrelish for farm 
labor, he was ptrmitted to pursue his studies. He 
studied Latin, Greek, and in 1821, German. He had 
a great aptitude for languages. In 1834, he learned 
Polish, and became afterwards familiar with the Saxon. 
He familiarized himself, in whole or part, with fifty 
or sixty languages, says the limes. He was also an 
excellent scholar in Natural History. In the studies to 
which he devoted the leisure hours he could steal from 
an extensive practice, he was a thorough enthusiast. 
He first studied medicine in the books of his great- 
grandfather. He graduated at Yale Medical School, 
and commenced practice in Troy in 1827. In the chol- 
era season of 1849, he passed several days at a time 
without removino^ his clothins:. He feared no danofer. 
He first became noted in the cholera season of 1832, 
and ever after had a large practice, more than one man 
should. He had over three thousand five hundred cases 
in obstetrics. 

He was for a time President of the Rensselaer County 
Medical Society; was a member of the American Medi- 
cal Society, the American Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science, and Corresponding Member of the 
State Historical Societies of Connecticut, Vermont and 


A Christian impulse seemed to guide every action. 
He was a kind, benevolent man, and, says our authority, 
a citizen in whom were united the most desirable attain- 
ments, and the most brilliant and admirable traits of 
mental and moral character. He died March 20, 1858.

The following is from the Memphis Appeal: 

"George K Candee, who died June 28, 1874, at his old home in 
"Connecticut, came to Memphis in 1838. He was associated as a 
"merchant, at different periods, with H. G. Buckingham, Emmett 
"Mix, A, M. Latham, and others. In 1862, Mr. Candee retired from 
" business, and from that time has resided here, at different watering 
"places, and of late at his old home in New England. He was eminently 
"successful as a tradesman, and was ever esteemed thoroughh^ trust- 
" worthy. Few citizens of Memphis, at the time he withdrew from active 
" business pursuits, could boast of a greater number of friends than G. 
"N. Candee. His commercial credit and character were stainless; and 
"there are many old citizens of Memphis who will read this announce- 
"ment of his death with sincere regret. Mr. Candee was lavish in 
"expenditures in behalf of the poor and unfortunate; and the war 
"between the States cost him heavily. He was, we believe, an original 
"member of the Old Folks' Association of Memphis."

as a merchant with his brother, under the name of J. & 
S. Baldwin. In May, 1835, he and his family removed 
to Elyria, Lorain county, Ohio, where he continued as a 
merchant until 1847, when he returned to Meriden for 
nine vears. In Meriden, he was President of the Home 
Bank, now Home National Bank. In 1856, he returned 
to Elyria, and again became a merchant there and in 
Wellington, in the same county. His success as a mer-

town quite a center for trade. He now lives quietly in 
Elyria. He and his two sons are each year, on the same 
day, elected Directors in different Xational Banks. His 
wife Mary E. died September 28, 1836. She was a 
bright woman, of clear, good mind, a good education 
for the day, and with promise of much usefulness. Mr. 
Baldwin married 2'^^^' Fidelia Hall, of Meriden, by whom 
he has two vouno^er children. The writer takes this

devoted, loving step-mother.

ence. His modesty ha^^ not given me much of his 



history. The Associated Press dispatches of August 7, 
1877, contain the following: 

"Attempted Burglary and Murder in a Saratoga Hotel. 

"Saratoga, August 7. — The rooms occupied by John D. Candee, of 
"the Bridgeport Standard, and family, at the Temple Grove House, were 
"entered by a burgler about one o'clock this morning. Mr. Candee, 
"seeing him go into a room where his child was, got up and followed. 
"A sharp scuffle ensued, during which the burglar shot ]\[r. Candee, 
"the ball entering his neck and lodging near the spine. The burglar 
" then escaped by a ladder he had placed at the window."

Aged 68 Years. 

The cemetery is out of a corner of the farm owned by 
John Candee, which Mr. Candee says is, in the main, the 
original farm of Caleb Candee. It is a good farm, on 
land nearly the highest in Oxford. From the cemetery a 
fine view can be had for miles; and with the fine loca- 
tion, the tall evergreens, and the beautiful drive, it 
seems indeed a lovely spot for the long rest. 

The age of Lois Mallory (or Mallery), the wife of 
Caleb, would identify her with Lois Mallery, whose 
birth is entered in Xew Haven, November 30, 1721, 
daughter of Daniel Mallery,"' of that place, son of 
Thomas,- Peter Mallery,^ the first of Xew Haven.

in Oxford, where his father, grandfather and great grandfather, the 
original Caleb, lived. He is much respected in that town as an intel- 
ligent man, of earnest convictions and thorough integrity and courage 
in act and speech. He remaiued in Oxford to take care of his parents, 
grandparents and sisters, although, to a man of his ability, the world 
would have opened more widely elsewhere. He has remained closely 
in Oxford, having been out of Connecticut but once; but once on a rail- 
road train, but once on a steamboat, and never in a stage. The railroad 
has finally come to him. and the New York and New England road in- 
tersects his farm, near his house. He has no children.

city of New Haven for the years 1858 and 1859. 

I have ended my list of the Candees. I believe there 
is no person named Candee in the world who is not 
descended from onr common ancestor, Zaccheus. I 
have found no person named Candee whom I failed to 
connect ; though it will be apparent to one who care- 
fully examines the foregoing list, that there may be 
descendants whose history is lost. 

It is common for persons of the same family name to 
think there is a likeness to be traced among the persons 
bearino^ it. The writer is of the sixth s^eneration from 
Zaccheus, and had of that generation sixty-four an- 
cestors. It is fair to conclude that it is not likelv a 
peculiarit}' can be traced between individuals having 
only one-sixty-fourth in common. 

I am personally acquainted with few Candees. These 
are quiet, reticent, unostentatious, gentlemanly people, 
of good understanding and intelligence. One peculiarity 
is marked throughout all the Candees : nearly all are 

CANDEE. 119 

good penmen, writing a plain hand; ornamental, but 
not ornate. 

Very few indeed are in the old homes, nearly all 
living in large villages or cities, and mostly in positions 
of responsibility. They appear to be generally good 
business men. 

I am sorry that I could not have given fuller sketches 
of the dead and the living. At such a distance as I am 
from the old homes, it is impossible. 

In times past, too, the Candees seemed somewhat 
marked with the quiet traits of the present day. Nearly 
all are descended from Samuel,- and a large proportion 
from Caleb,^' so that the relationship is still nearer than 
Zaccheus. The extra e was added in the early part of 
the present century, and apparently, by general consent, 
by all the Candees; even those of Western Massachu- 
setts following this fashion. 

It may be of some interest to say that the late Mr. 
David McEwen, of Oxford, an aged man, told me that 
when he was young, the old people pronounced the 
name Cambee, the younger people Candee.

a Representative 

at the March General Court, in Massachusetts, and re- 
moved, perhaps next year, to Hartford. In May 22, 
1638, then of Hartford, he lodged with Roger Williams.* 
He had in Wetherstield a brother Thomas, as appears 
by a lawsuit between the two in 1650. f Thomas was 
therein 1636; freeman in 1652; Representative in 1652. 
If son of Samuel, of Chelmsford, Matthew was baptized in 
April, 1604. The spelling is there Allen, though in the 
names of Matthew and Thomas it was generally here 
Allyn. Matthew generally signed his name with a y ; 
but, it is said on high authority (see Savage), not always 
so, and the c is common in records and in print. He was 
married in England, and his children are supposed to 
have been born there. He was a large proprietor in Hart- 
ford in 1639, a proprietor in Windsor as early as 1640, 
a large owner in Killingsworth, and also in Simsbury.

122 ALLYN. 

He was a member of Mr. Hooker's churcli, and, says 
Mr. Hiuman, "a man of superior talents, energetic, 
wilful, and obstinate in all bis projects." Perbaps peo- 
ple of bis time called it firmness, for be was mucb 
bonored. " Few men in tlie Colony," says Mr. Hinman 
again, '' bad more influence, or received more bonors 
from tbe people, tban Mr. Allyn. He bad been a mem- 
ber of botb braucbes of tbe General Court, a Magistrate 
and Judge, a member of tbe United Congress for New 
England, one of tbe signers of tbe petition to Cbarles 
II. for a cbarter, and beld many town oltices." 

He owned tbe first mill at Hartford, at tbe foot 
of present West Pearl street.* After a few years at 
Hartford, be difiered witb tbe cburcb, and in 1644 be 
presented to tbe General Court a petition against tbe 
cburcb in Hartford for relief in bis censure of excom- 
munication, in wbicb be claimed to bave been wronged. 
As was to be expected, in October, 1644, tbe Court de- 
cided be bad not proved bis cbarges, and sbould answer 
furtber. November 27, tbe matter seems to bave been 
dropped, and perbaps at tbat time Mr. Allyn removed 
to Windsor. 

Honorable Isaac W. Stewart (Scacva)t tbus pleas- 
antly alludes to it: ''Tbis distinguisbed settler was 
ordered to bring into Court tbe particulars of bis accu- 
sation, but be did not; yet we sball never believe bim 
guilty of anytbing sinful or beinous, for be was a good 
man, a just man, a bigb-minded man, and one of tbe

props of the Colony. Perhaps he entertained senti- 
ments on baptism, church membership or church dis- 
cipline variant from a majority of the Church, and so 
fell under the ban, as did others, not many years 
after, for the same cause. The South Church is the 
ottspring, in 1670, of difficulties of this character.'' * 
We think it not unlikely that this may partly have 
led Mr. Allyn to Windsor, although there are many 
evidences that he was in high esteem still at Hartford; 
and Mr. Hinman seems to think that the Church encour- 
aged him to remove, being afraid of his " iniiuence with 
the settlers." 

In 1658, there was again trouble in the Hartford 
Church, and Mr. Allyn was Chairman of the Committee 
of the General Court to write letters on the subject. f 

Mr. Allvn had some time before been interested in 
the Windsor Plantation. Plymouth Colony originally 
asserted a rio^ht to lands there as in the limits of that 
Colony ; and in 1633, Plymouth people had a trading- 
house there, and these people were really the first set- 
tlers.]: May 3, 1638, Lieutenant William Holmes, by 
authority of a power of attorney from the Company of 
New Plymouth, sold to Mr. Allyn all the lands, houses, 
^'servants, goods and chattels" of that Company in the 
town of Windsor. '^'Thus," says our author, "was ex- 
tinguished the last vestige of Plymouth right and title 
upon the Connecticut river." 

* For an example of the force of such influences, see the account herein of Mr. Pynchon, 
driven to England by them, 
t Connecticut Colonial Records, Volume 1, page 321. X Stiles' Windsor, pages 13, 19, 43. 

124 ALLYN. 

Mr. Allyn was a quick man to see his rights, and seeing 
to maintain them : and he afterwards claimed he was not 
amenable to Connecticut taxes, nor yet his property, he 
having purchased from Plymouth. By mutual consent, 
the matter was referred to the distinguished gentlemen, 
Messrs. Haynes, Ludlow, Hopkins and Phillips, who 
decided he should pay Connecticut rates and no other, 
and that he "should have notice given liim, in con- 
venient time, of all such orders as do or may concern 
him, and that the orders be such as lie within his 
compass and power to accomplish and perform in a 
reasonable way."* Had Windsor anticipated the mod- 
ern Western way of taxing severely non-residents? 

Sergeant Fyler, in behalf of the town, brought suit 
against All3'n after this reference, in which, October, 
1G42, Fyler was ordered to pay the costs, " haveing made 
a referance before the sute." Mr. Allvn's homestead 


there was a little below the rivulet, close by the site of 
the old Plymouth trading-house. 

Mr. Alh^n was Representative from Windsor every 
year from 1648 to 1658 inclusive, except 1653; Magis- 
trate of the Colon V from 1657 to 166" inclusive; Com- 
raissioner for the United Colonies of New England from 
1660 to 1664. 

In 1649, the General Court having ''judged it lawful, 
and according to God," to make war upon the Indians, 
Mr. Allyn was tlie first of the three Deputies on the 
Committee " for the ordering of the setting forth of

tbeire souldgers." In 1G57, he and Jo Gilbert were to 
go to Pacomtnck to declare to the Indians the rnind of 
the Commissioners. In 1G59, he and his son John were 
both of the Committee with power to divide Podunk 
lands, formerly possessed by tliose Indians, and also to 
treat with the Indians. At the same Court, he was on 
the Committee with power to treat in behalf of Hart- 
ford, Windsor and Wetherstield. with Mr. Fenwick. In 
1G60, the Worshipfal Governor and Deputy Governor 
were chosen Commissioners for the next year, and Mr. 
Matthew Allvn chosen as a reserve, and also to act as 
Moderator in their absence. The same year, he was ot 
the Committee with power about Thirty-Mile Inland. 
In IGGl, he was Moderator, and of the Committee to 
petition for the Patent [Charter.] 

The Charter* for Connecticut, from Charles II.. 
named Mr. Allvn as one of the orpantees, he beine" 
one of the ''persons principally interested in our Col- 
onv or Plantation of Connecticutt." lie was Moder- 
ator aii-ain m ltj«»2, and Chairman of the Committee 
to treat with Xew Haven for a union in l(jli2 and IGGo;

treat with the gentlemen (Dutch) come from the Man- 
hatoes (Xew York.) The same year, Mr. Willis and he 
were to go over to Long Island to settle the government 
on the west end ot the island. In 1GG4, the Committee 
was renewed witli the addition of the Governor and 
Captain Young, with authority to establish Courts and

other full powers. In October of the same year, he was 
of the committee to settle the 'Mjounds" with "the 
Bay," and between "Road Island and us," and "our 
South Bounds." At the same Court, " Mr. Allyn, Senior 
or Junior," was desired, with three others, to accompany 
the Governor to New York to congratulate His Majes- 
ty's Commissioners, and if opportunity offered, to "issue 
the bounds between the Duke's pattent & o's." 

In 1665, the union of Connecticut and New Haven 
being complete, both Matthew Allyn, Esq., and his son 
Lieutenant John Allyn, were chosen assistants as well as 
in 1666 and 1667, and in 1666 Matthew was Moderator. 
In 1666, both were of the Committee, in case of apparent 
danger of invasion, to order the militia as they shall deem 
meet, to appoint and commission officers, etc., etc. 

In 1663, under order of the General Court, William 
Wadsworth, J^mes Avery and Lieutenant Smith were a 
Committee to divide lands at " Hamonoscitt," (Killings- 
worth.) The owners were Matthew and John Allyn, 
Captain Talcott and Mr. Wyllys. He is entered on the 
Killingsworth records as a large landholder and first 
settler, but there is no probability that he lived there. 
His will was dated January 30, 167y, and he died Feb- 
ruary 1, 167^. His wife Margaret was made sole ex- 
ecutrix. He gave his wife the use of his estate and 
desired his sons and son-in-law Newberry to improve it 
for her. He gave his son John his lands in"Kennil- 
worth," and confirmed to him his Hartford lands, which 
he had given him as a marriage portion. He gave also

a large estate to Thomas, and provided liberally for his 
daughter, Mary ITewberry, and grand-daughter, Mary 
Maudsley. His house in Windsor he had previously 
deeded to Thomas, subject to life use by himself and

she had any children by Mr. Gardner. 

Secretary John Allyn, by his S'^'* wife Hannah, daugh- 
ter of George Lamberton, widow of Samuel Welles, of 
Wetherslield, is supposed to have had no children. 

Colonel Allvn died at Hartford, November 6, 1696. 
His wife survived him, and received as dower £479, 25.

£315 sterling, besides the mother's dowry.

and confirmed by the Court. In 1659, with Jacob 
Migat, he asked in belialf of the artillery a grant of 
Thirty-Mile Lslaud. In lt>(>l, he is elected Deputy as 

In March, 1662, he and John Talcot had granted them 
six hundred acres ot upland and one hundred of meadow. 
October 9, 1662, " the Pattent, or Charter, was pub- 
li(|uely read in audience of y^ freemen, and declared to 
belong to them and their successors.'^ They made 
choice of Mr. Willvs, John Talcot and Lieutenant 
John Allyn to take it into their custody upon oath for 
''y^ due discharge of the trust." 

In 1663, he was with his father on the committee 
for union with IN^ew Haven, and tlie same vear was 
chosen Secretary. " Colonel Allyn," says Mr. C. J. 
Hoadley,''^ ''was chosen Secretary in 1663, and every 
subsequent year until 1696, inclusive; was often a 
Commissioner of the United Colonies in the time of 
Sir Edmund Andros ; was a Member of^the Council, 
and the principal Judge of the Court of Common Pleas, 
in Hartford county. f He held also several minor offices 
as Clerk of the Courts, Town Clerk and Clerk of the 
first Ecclesiastical Society in Hartford. Durintr the

Connecticut possessed greater influence in the public 
affairs of the Colony than he."

130 ALLYN. 

The temper of the Couuecticut Colony was tried in 
1675. Andros was made Governor of New York, and 
his territory included all the country west of the Con- 
necticut river.* May 1, 1(375, he writes to the Colony, 
desiring submission. On the 17th, they answer by Mr. 
Allyn, setting up their Charter and their ''obliged duty" 
. . . . "to continue in the management of what we are 
intrusted with,*' calling themselves "3'our affectionate 
friends and neighbors.'' Further correspondence ap- 

In July, the Colony was threatened by the Indians, and 
Andros proposed to assist them. It was suspected he 
meant to surprise Saybrook; and Governor Dongan, his 
successor in 1687, writes: ''On perusal of some papers 
in the Secretary's office," says Andros "himself went 
with some soldiers to surprise them, intending, when 
he had done it, to keep possession by a fort he designed 
to make at a place called Seabrook, but was prevented 
by the opposition of two companies of men," &c. 

Secretary Allyn, July 8, 1675, sent to Captain Bull 
instructions that he should forbid the forces of Andros 
from landing. Captain Bull, with one hundred men, 
reached the fort on the 8th, only a few hours before 
Andros came. He was directed minutely how to resist; 
was, in Ilis Majesty's name, to avoid striking the first 
blow; " but if they begin, you are to defend yourselves, 
and do your best to secure the peace of the whole 
Colony of Connecticott in o' possession," and to keep 
the instructions to himself, and give no copy. 

♦Connecticut Colonial Records, Volume 2, pages 263, 333, 569-574, 578-586. 

ALLYN. 131 

The Court, however, unanimously ordered, under seal, 
and signed by the Secretary, a protest, to be sent to 
the several plantations, resolving to use their utmost 
power and endeavor (expecting the assistance of Al- 
mighty God) to defend against Major Andros. 

We have seen that the Charter of Connecticut was 
committed to the custody of Allyn and others. We 
relate elsewhere in this volume, how, with the help 
of Captain Wadsworth, the duplicate Charter was pre- 
served. I have no doubt that the seizure and hiding 
of the Charter was premeditated. The whole history 
shows a settled purpose, skillfully and adroitly carried 
out, and so persistently and harmoniously as perhaps 
would only have been possible at a great distance 
from the King, and where the hearts of all the public 
beat as one. 

Governor Andros, by letter dated December 22, 1686, 
from Boston, makes known to Governor Treat the 
command of His Majesty to receive the surrender of 
the Charter. January 26, 1687, by Secretar}^ Allyn, 
Connecticut makes known its preference, if they must 
be joined with other Colonies, to join Massachusetts, 
but not a word about the Charter. Andros writes, 
February 25 and 28, 1687, expostulating at the delay 
in surrendering the Charter. March 30, 1687, Con- 
necticut replies that they had addressed the King, and 
requests therefore an amicable correspondence with 
Andros. A letter from Andros, June 13, 1687, informs 
them of the judgment upon the quo warranto about 

132 ALLYN. 

the Charter, and hopes for an immediate surrender. 
John Saffin, June 14, advises John Allyn, Esq., Secre- 
tary, that those who stand out the longest will fare the 

It will be remembered that, by the record, there 
were now certain persons who had the custody of the 
Charter, and who would be called upon for it. But at 
the Court commencing June 15, 1687, there is a record 
that '' Sundry of the Court desiring that the Patent or 
Charter might be brought into Court, the Secretary 
sent for it and informed the Governor and Court that 
he had the Charter, and showed it to the Court, and 
the Governor had him j^ut it into the box againe and 
lay it on the table, and leave the key in the box, which 
he did forthwith." * 

Mr. Hoadle}^ makes several sui^gestions as to why 
this entry was made, and adds: " Tbe entry is so framed 
that if the box with its precious contents had disap- 
peared, its former authorized guardians might have 
been discharged of all responsilulity for its loss." I 
think that must have been the purpose of the record. 

On the 18th, Mr. Allyn writes, regretting that the 
Court had adjourned before messengers arrived, and 
declaring it " not in our power" to alter the resolution 
of the Court "to continue in the station in wliich the}' 
were." (irovernor Dongan, of New York, displeased at 
Connecticut for preferring to unite with Massachusetts, 
represents that Allyn and the Governor are for the

surrender of tlie Charter. Whiting writes to Allyn that 
he hears that, but won't believe it until Allyn says so. 

October 22, 1687, Andros writes to Connecticut that 
he has received " effectual orders and commands from 
His Majesty for Connecticut," and resolves to send, or 
be at Hartford himself, the next week. October 31 
1687, he came to Hartford, escorted by the troopers on 
horseback, and commanded b}^ the same Captain Wads- 
worth, who seized the Charter. 

I But the armed resistance of America had not yet 
come, and Andros became Governor. His commission 
was read, and he made known His Majesty's pleasure, 
to make Governor Treat and Captain John Allyn mem- 
bers of his Council. The}^ were sworn in, one man 
making the ver}^ significant exclamation, that ''they 
first desired that they might continue as they were." 
Mr. Allyn was then made the Judge of the Court of 
Common Pleas for the Court of Hartford. Mr. Whit- 
ing, son-in-law of Mr. Allyn, was Clerk at Hartford^ 
Mr. All3'n recommended the same Joseph Wadsworth 
to be Lieutenant, saying it will be most accommodating 
to the people. He also recommended Captain Benjamin 
Newberry (his brother-in-law) to be Major. He himself 
was Lieutenant-Colonel, the highest office, ?o that the 
militia was completely under his control. 

Mr. All3'n seems to have had even more business 
under Andros than before, and much infiuence. Mr. 

Hoadlev says : " Nh*. Allyn, with the same tact he had 

. * 

displayed in his otficial intercourse with Dudley and 


134 ALLYN. 

with Dongaii, succeeded in establishing amicable rela- 
tions with West (Andros' Secretar}'), as well as with 
Andros; and to the good offices of the Deputy Secre- 
tary, Connecticut doubtless owed much of her compara- 
tive exemption from the evils of arbitrary government 
during the usurpation/'-'^ 

In 1688, Andros was made Governor of Xew England, 
New York, and East and West Jersey : and at a meeting, 
August 20, 1688, at iS'ew York, Mr. AUyn is present as 
one of the Council. 

The history of the surrender appears under the signa- 
ture of Mr. Allyn, in the address to King William, 
June 13, 1689, t petitioning a continuance of the Char- 
ter. Seeing other Charters condemned, they knew 
what to expect, but judged it not good or lawful to be 
active in surrendering what cost so dear: that, if to 
be annexed to some other government, they preferred 
Massachusetts, as old correspondents and a people with 
whose principles and manners they were acquainted, 
"which choice of ours was taken for a resio^nation of 
our government, tho' that was never intended by us 
as such, nor the formalities in law to make it so." 

The draft or copy of this address to the King is in the 
handwriting of Mr. Allyn. It excites the wrath of Mr. 
Bulkley, of " Will and Down," a pamphlet written very 
strongly against the resumption of the Charter Govern- 
ment. Mr. Bulkley, with l)itterness, says it was drawn 

* Connecticut Colonial Records, Volume 4, page 393. 
t Connecticut Colonial Records, Volume 3, page 463. 

ALLYN. 135 

by one who "jwas an Antesignanus * in the Revolution," 
and in its "sly insinuations/' he detects the '•Uuiguis in 
herha,^' — snake in the grass. The letter was several 
times read and approved by the General Court,! and 
Mr. Bulkley evidently thought it well drawn — alluding 
to Secretary Allyn as the "dictator," who "could easily 
induence the Court with his gloss, and move them to 
speak in his dialect." The Journal of the General Court 
ended October 31, 1687; by order of the Governor. 
Finis, (in the handwriting of Mr. Allyn.) 

May 9, 1680, the Government was resumed, to pro- 
ceed as it did before according to the Charter. Colonel 
Allyn was an "active promoter" of this revolution; 
and, as before, Treat was Governor and he Secretary. 
This resumption was not without danger to him. In 
October, 1690, a defendant having challenged the juris- 
diction. Governor Treat said: "The people had put him 
in, and he had ventured all he had above his shoulders 
on this account, and therefore he would maintain it." 

In October, 1688, Mr. Allyn is Lieutenant Colonel by 
Andros, and in September, 1689, is chosen to the same 
office by the General Court — then the highest military 

To give any full account of the many civil services 
performed by Colonel Allyn, as he was called the latter 
part of his life, would take altogether too much space. 
He was so constantly honored that it is very plain that 
those who knew him best had the highest opinion, not

onlj of his ability, but of his faithfulness to the Colony 
under all circumstances. 

After 1690, he had many commissions, such as pre- 
paring the fort at Saybrook : agreeing with Massachu- 
setts about the houndarv: to revise laws regulatins; the 
value of the currency, "fiat money;*' correspondence 
with Fletcher : Commissioner to treat with the Five 
Xations, etc., etc. 

The contest with Fletc-her was no doubt a lively one, 
requiring all the courageous ability formerly shown by 
Colonel and Secretarv Allvn. Fletcher wanted to s^et 
command of the militia, which was the right way for 
the King to command, as Andros had been escorted 
by troopers commanded by the man who seized the 
Charter under a Governor who ventured all above his 

Fletcher's account* of his visit to Ilaitford is amusing. 
He desired and was permitted to read to the Court his 
commission, whereupon they desired him to hear their 
Charter read, and desired him to suspend his commission 
until thev could hear from Eno:land. Fletcher was not 
willing; whereupon, next day, they gave him an answer 
in writing, (by Colonel Allyn undoubtedly.) They could 
not find that the commission superseded the commis- 
sion for the militia in their Charter. It seems Fletcher 
thought it not safe to stay. His letter says lie spent 
twenty days laboring to persuade a stubborn people to 
their duty. "I never saw the like people. They have 
raised a considerable tax to send one Mr. Winthrop

theire agent for England, yet pay no obedience to the 
Crown — neither their agent, nor any in office, having 
taken the oaths or subscribed the test. I coukl not force 
obedience, liaving no company but a few servants and 
two friends, nor did I think it tlie King's service to carry 
on the contest to blonde, though ihey threaten to draw 
mine for urging my master's rights." 

The last sentence very likely refers to Captain Wads- 
worth and his "Drum! drum I I say," though it appears 
he had other threats of violence, and did not dare to go 
out " thinly attended,'" and left because the people w^ere 
ready to be in a commotion. He seems, according to 
his own account,* not to have been able to make his 
proclamation, and he then gave it to the Secretary, 
desiring him to make it, who said he would give it to the 
Governor. Little good would it do, we may be sure, to 
give it to Governor Treat. 

A pamphlet of forty-eight pages, entitled ''A Vindica- 
tion of Connecticut,"! was ordered [mblished by the Gov- 
ernor and Assistant Governor, April 23, 1694. Some of 
it sounds like sarcasm; witness on page 100: " Several 
things are said of a proclamation left with Colonel 
Allyn, imparted to the Governor, and fault is found that 
it was not published, an<l so of a second proclamation 
sent from York. Ans. 1. Let our General Court's an- 
swer be considered, and that will show how improper it 
w^as for our Governor to publish those proclamations.

The AVnrshipfiil Captain Allyn, as he was s unetimes 
styled in those days of careful and quaint titles, con- 
tinued in like active service until 169<3, when he died, 
and November 6, the Governor and Council assembled 
to attend his funeral. 

Secretary Kiniberlv writes to Fitz John Wiuthron, 
that "this genileman of principal trust and dependence" 
died Friday, ^N^ovember 6, 1686, "about elevm o'clock 
at night, without any long precedent sickntss; his death 
being, as it is thought, occasioned by a cold seizing upon 
his breast." 

He left a hamlsome estate and no will. His monu- 
ment still stands in Hanford, and has the following 
inscription : " Here lyes interred the body of the Hon- 
orable Lt. ColoiK'l John Allyn, who served his Genera- 
tion in the capacity of a Magistrate, Secretary of the 
Colony of Connecticut 34 years, who dyed Xov. 6, in 
the year 1696." 

Mr. Edes, to show the respect and esteem enter- 
tained for Secietary Allyn, quotes the proceedings of 
the General Councill, held in December, 1696: "Voted 
and ordered in Council, that a letter be sent to our agent, 
giving iiim an account of what we have sent for his 
supply;" and "also what low condition the providence 
of God hath brought us into by the death of the Hon''''' 
Colon" Allen."* 

One of the scenes of Colonel AUyn's life, which set-nis 
most strange to us, was in a trial for witchcraft at Fair- 

>e\v England Historic and Genealogical Reipster, Volume 23, page 170.

field, Connecticut, in September, 1G92. The Court con- 
sisted of the Governor, Deputy Governor, Secretary 
Allyn and four eminent gentlemen. Four women were 
indicted by the Grand Jury for a familiarity with Satan. 
There was a great amount of evidence. The water 
ordeal was resorted to, as in Hartford in 1662, and four 
witnesses swore that Mercy Disborough, being bonnd 
hand and foot, swam like a cork, though one labored to 
press her down. She was found guilty by the jury, the 
other three acr|uitted. The jury being sent out again, 
found her guilty, and the Court approved their verdict, 
and the Governor sentenced her to death. It is thought, 
however, that she was not executed.* 

Mr. Savage says: ''Increase Mather includes in his 
relation of the Indian wars, the account of the troubles, 
preceding and during that with the Pequots, written by 
Allyn (Secretary), filling nineteen of his pages." 

Prince says: "It was furnished Mather I)}' Allyn, 
and attributed to Allvn by mistake, the oris^inal havino^ 
been written by Major (Captain) Mason. "f The narra- 
tive follows. We do not know whether Savage or 
Prince is right. 

Mr. Palfrey, who is found to speak in measured 
commendation of Governor Winthrop, of Connecticut, 
says: " But the power had gone from him. The signed 
and sealed Charter that doomed Xew Haven, had passed 
from his hands into hands stronger and less daint3^ His 
ocontle o^enius bent before the coarser and more resolute 
spirit of the Secretary, John Allyn." ''Allyn, more

than he, was the ruler of Connecticut. It was not in 
the wa}^ of Winthrop, Governor of Massachusetts, to 
admit any such control as in the sister Colony was 
exercised by the able and determined Secretary."* 

This makes a very pretty antithesis, and Mr. Palfrey 
IS right as to the abilit}^ and resolute spirit of Mr. Allyn, 
whom he calls '^ a man of ability and resolution, and 
the leading spirit of the Colony. "t But, unluckil}^ for 
tlie force of the antithesis, Allyn seems for many years, 
and under several Governors, to have been a leading 
spirit. There is no ground for the use of the word 
coarse; but probably, as resolution was opposed, in the 
figure of speech, to irresolution, so the "gentle" called 
for the word coarser. 

Allyn's many years of very public life show nothing 
but high intelligence, refinement and manners — reso- 
lute, but the opposite of coarse ; gentle, but firm. Such 
action only could have saved the Charter. 

Mr. Edes, in his sketch of Colonel Allyn, says : " He 
was an excellent diplomat, and to his influence and tact 
may l)e ascribed the amicable relations which, generally 
speaking, prevailed between the Connecticut Colony 
and the Andros government." 

" Few men enjoyed to a greater degree the confidence 
and esteem of their contemporaries than he." " He was 
possessed of fine abilities, of great energy and untiring 
industry." " His official letters and records bear ample 
testimony to his intelligence — the influence he possessed 
over the political aftairs of Connecticut was vast."

Elm street (Xos. 23 and 24), in 1646. He was a viewer 
of chimneys in 1646-7, and for many years Constable 
which office, at that time, says " Hinman's Puritan 
Settlers," was one of the most honorable and trust- 
worthy in the Colony. He held other places of trust 
in the Colony and town. He had part in the division 
of lands in 1672, and was living in 1687, when he testi- 
fied in Court that he was 75 years old, making him 
born about 1612. He was married before he came to 
Hartford, and his son John came with him. He ac- 
quired considerable landed property. He died in 1690, 
aged 78.

John* and his father had land from the town of Hart-

* Mr. Chipman, in the History of Harwinton, pa^e 149, says this John can hardly be 
doubted to be the one signing at Branford, in 1665, an agreement to found a town in New 
Jersey (Newark); and also the John Catlin who, with his son Jonathan, was slain at Deer- 
field; but the account of the Branford John, in "Hinman's Puritan Settlers," leaves no 
doubt, it seems to me, that he was not this John. The Branford John married at Wethers- 
field in 1662, where there was a previous John, probably his father, and had a son John 
there in 1663. He disappears at Wethersfield, and in 1665 is at Branford, and next in 
Newark, where he continued until 1683: thence to Hadley and Deerfield. 

One of these Johns was likely the one who signed to remove to Hadley in 16.^0, instead 
of our John, as Hinman says. I have sent the proof of this account of Catlin to Hon. 
George Sheldon, the genealogist of Deerfield, who says the John of Wethersfield, Braiifonl, 
Newark and Deerfield was clearly not the John above described. John of Deerfield was 
sometimes called Cattell and Catling.

the ancient men, there was a vote put for choice of a 
Captain." Lieutenant Cooke was chosen by a vote of 
eighty-seven to nineteen for all others. In September, 
1656, it was provided that Captain Cooke " shall cause 
that seasoniable warning shall be given to come to the 
meeting, by drum or trumpet, on the top of the meeting 
house, and should have 20.s. for the year ensuing."

September 8, 1653, he is allowed fifty acres of land at 
Massacoe (Simsbury), which he owned, to be in his 
father Ford's improvement. 

In March, 165J, he is one of the listed persons for 
troopers, presented by Major John Mason, as Captain 
Aaron Cooke, of Windsor. Captain Cooke was the 
owner of "The Complete Body of the Art Military,"* 
by Lieutenant Colonel Richard Elton, published in 
England in 1649; and he left it by will to his son, the 
second Captain Aaron. 

He was, according to Savage, discouraged from set- 
tling at Simsbury by a controversy ; remov^ed to North- 
ampton in 1661 ; was a proprietor at Westfield in 1667 ; 
Representative in 1668. lie had a house and lot in 
Windsor, which he gave to his son Aaron as a marriage 
portion, who, in 1664, convoyed his dwelling-house and 

land on Sandy Bank to John Maudsley.f

Joan died April, 1676, and he married S""*^' December 
2, 1676, Elizabeth, daughter of John Xash, of New 
Haven ; and 4^''' in 1688, Rebecca, widow of Philip Smith, 
and daufi^hter of Nathaniel Foote, but he had no more 
children. He died September 5, 1690, aged 80. 

The "History of Dorchester'"^ says he was a man cf 
great energy, and a devoted friend to the Regicide 
Judges, GofFe and Whalley. While they were in this 
country, they resided in his neighborhood. 

It may be worth while to notice, that May 18, 1680, 
Sir Edward Andros wrote from New York to the Gov- 
ernor of Connecticut, that he had been informed that 
Colonel Goffe was kept concealed by Captain Joseph 
Bull and his sons at Hartford, under the name of Mr. 
Cooke. Warrants were issued to the Constable, but of 
course he would not find Golfe. 

June 11, 1680, Secretary Allyn wrote to Andros, de- 
siring the names of the informers. 

Andros, in 1687, made Captain Cooke a Major (then 
the highest regimental office in Massachusetts.) After 
the fall of Andros, he was Captain again. 

March 27, 1683, Captain Cooke, with John Pynchon, 
of Springfield, and three others, composing the County 
Court, sat upon the case of Mary Webster, " under strong 
suspicion of having familiarity with the devil, or using 
witchcraft." There was considerable testimony, but the 
Court " look upon her case as a matter belonging to 
the Court of Assistants." She was sent to Boston, and

tried before Governor Bradstreet, the Deputy Governor 
and nine Assistants and a jury, the Grand Jury there 
having indicted her. She was acquitted. 

3. JtatOtt," Aaron/ born in Windsor, Connecticut, 
February 21, 1641 ; settled in Hadley, Massachusetts. 
He married, May 30, 1661, Sarah, only child of William 
Westwood. She died March 24, 1730, aged 86 years. 

William Westwood was of Cambridge, Massachusetts. 
Mr. Savage says he may have been there as early as 
1632, though he says he came in the "Frances," from 
Ipswich the last of April, 1634, and had lived in the 
adjoining county of Essex. He was aged 28, his wife 
Bridget 32, and he brought two servants, John Lea and 
Grace Newell. He was a man of good estate, and came 
to examine the country before bringing his family. He 
was freeman March 4, 1635 ; removed with the earliest 
company of Hooker to Connecticut, as an original pro- 
prietor of Hartford, and was Representative at the first 
General Court, held at Xewton (afterwards Hartford), 
April 26, 1636; others at Dorchester (Windsor), and 
Watertown (Wethersfield). He attended every subse- 
quent Court during the continuance of the commission, 
but his name does not appear among the magistrates 
after. He was, however, deputy for Hartford in the 
year 1642 to 1656 inclusive, except 1645. 

In 1639, he was one of the selectmen of Hartford and 
once or twice after, and a frequent juror. His home 
lot in Hartford was three acres on the west side of the 

154 COOKE. 

''highway leading from the little river to the north 
meadow," now Front street, with a cartway throuo:h it 
to Sentinel Hill, being nearly or quite where Morgan 
street now is. . 

About 1658, he removed to Iladlev. Massachusetts. 
In 1*359, he was of the committee to lav out home lots 
there, and was often on other committees in the public 
service. In 1H62, he was Selectman. He died at Ilad- 
ley, April 9, 1669. His wife Bridget died there. May 
12, 1676. 

He had but one child, his daughter Sarah, to whom 
he gave by will all his lands in Hartford. Her son 
Aaron, inheriting from her the same lands, removed 
to Hartford and settled thereon."^ 

Mr. Stuart names Mr. ^VestwoodT as a "man of note 
and prominent inlluence, both in ecclesiastical and civil 
affairs, with more than ordinary possessions for the day, 
and honored often with offices of trust."' 

Mav 21, 1653, he was one of the three Committeemen 
for Hartford, appointed by the General Court to advise 
about the pressing of men ''for the present expedition," 
in all for the Colony, sixty-live men, to be ready at a 
day's warning, with provisions, etc. 

At Hadley, settled in 1659, he was that year one of a 
Committee to divide Xorthampton ; and he was also 
chosen one of seven "to order all public occasions that 
concern the good of that plantation for the year ensu- 
ing." In 1661, he was one of three Commissioners who

COOKE. 155 

had extensive civil and criminal powers, and Westwood 
had power to marrj, or in his absence one of the other 
Commissioners. By a petition,"^ signed by him as one 
of a committee, they besought the General Court to 
^' lend a listening ( ar to our cry." They already had 
too little land, and the place was far worse for wintering 
cattle than was expected, and they bought of the In- 
dians at such rates as they believed no other plantation 

Mr. TVestwood was, says Mr. Boltwood,t one of the 
wealthiest and most prominent of the lirst settlers of 
Hartford, and took the same position at Iladley. His 
daughter Sarah was born about 1644. In 1663, Mr. 
Cooke lived with him, and had no house lot. His large 
property went to his widow and daughter.

five." He was quite prominent in Hadley. He was 
quite interested in schools; and September 28, 1686, 
with Mr. John Russell, Joseph Kellogg and Samuel 
Porter, presented to the County Court at Springfield 
the declining state of the Grammar School, for which 
funds had been bequeathed, which the town undertook 
to manage. The Court sustained the petitioners. After 
quite a struggle to divert the fund to an English school, 
Ca[>tain Cooke (then a member of the Court of Ses- 
sions) was conceded by the town to be quite riglit. In 
1703, he was Town Measurer.

he was one of a committee to appoint places for schools, 
and dispose of the school money. August 20, 1751, he 
is one of the petitioners for the formation of Litchfield 
countv. He was several times Selectman, but I do 
not find his name in the too brief Chipman's History 
of Harwinton, after 1752. In 1751, Aaron Cooke, Jr., 
signed a remonstrance against the proposed county,

1. yetcr lUall^Vlj was at Xew Haven, Connecticut, 
in 1644, and siii;ned the planter's covenant. The name 
appears on the early records of Xew Haven, generally 
Mallery, also as Malery, Mallary and Malary. In later 
times it appears as Mallory. Dodd, in his " East Haven 
Register," calls it Mallory, and that seems the spelling 
now generally adopted. This is the form on page 16, 
where the last name was given from tradition, since 
proved. AVith the characteristic treedom of the early 
Puritan settlers, the name is often spelled differently in 
the same instrument. 

Peter's wife was no doubt named Mary, who signed 
with him a deed dated January IT, 1687, and whose 
death appears in New Haven records, December, 1690. 
Both signed the deed by mark. It conveys to his 
"loving son Thomas '' twelve acres, about half of Peter's 
lands in the place wherein his dwelling then stood, at 
West farms — bounded east by Joseph Smith, south by 
Herbet,"^ north by lands of John Mallery (given him 
by Peter) and lands of Thomas, on the west by other 
land of " mv owne on a path for to bee a continued 
" passage to our dwellings running between y*" said

" give, grant and confirm unto him, the said Thomas 
" Mallery, y^ land whereon his lastly built house standeth 
"upon, and also lands of two rods breadth from y'^ said 
" house," etc., etc. 

How, where and when Peter Mallery got his first 
lands I do not know. He made repeated conveyances 
to his children. 

Some of his lands joined Milford, and were on Oyster 
river which, in its lower course, now divides Orange 
(West Haven Post Ofiice) and Milford. 

January 2, 1684, he conveys to his son Peter twenty 
acres at Homesses' [Holmes?'] — bounded west by Mil- 
ford, east by town common, north by his land, and 
south by Samuel Bristow; and another piece of eighteen 
acres called West Side farms — bounded north by his 
land, east by Eleazer Beecher, west by Goodman Canbee, 
and south by highway. 

The same year he conveys to his son John, " on y*^ 
" west side of s'^ New Haven West river, at the West 
" farms, containing one acre and half — bounded by y"" 

highway that runneth from y*" Oyster point on y"" 

north, on the east by land of John Clarks, on y*" south 




" by lauds belonging to my son Tbomus Mallery, on y^ 
" west by a path that runneth between it and my other 
" lands whereon I dwell." 

In 1697, he makes a deed of which the following is a 
copy, so far as it remains in New Haven town records : 

"Articles of Agreement made and concluded on between Peter 
" Mallery, of New Haven in New England, husbandman, on ye one part, 
"and Peter Mallery, junior, his part, (and John) Mallery, cordwainer

Peter Mallerv had children : 

2. Rebecca, born March 18, 1649.

He had lands from his father, and built his house near 
his father, as appears under the account of Peter. ^ He 
was married March 26, 1684, to Mary Umberlield, bj^ 
Samuel Eells, of Milford. She is supposed by Mr. 
Sava2:e to be a sister of John Umberlield who was in 


^ew Haven in 1674, and a proprietor there in 1685. 
Umberfield had lands in West Haven ; he is supposed 
to have had children, at least Samuel who had descend- 
ants commencing with Sarah in 1695 ; I presume also 
a daughter, Mary, who married, Xovember 28, 1694, 
Ebenezer Downs. The name Umberfield remains in 
West Haven and in New Haven to this day. The 
name is also spelled, in the early Xew Haven records, 
Umphrevile, Humphrevile, Umfreeville, Umfrevile, 
Humfrevile, Humpherevile, Humphervile, Humpervile, 
Humphervel and Humphurvil. 

Thomas Mallery, January 10, 1687, receives a con- 
veyance from his brother John, at West Farms, bounded 
north by highway, east by John Clark, south by 
Thomas Mallery, and west by highway running to 
John's own "housing." 

Thomas died before his father, February 15, 169^. 
The inventory of his estate was presented at New Ha- 
ven April 8, 1692, amounting to £220 19.?. No admin- 
istrator appears, but February 2, 170J, his oldest son 
Thomas conveyed to his second son Daniel all his 
interest in "all y*" lands, orchard, house, barne, seques- 
tered lands and other wood land, and all v^ ever should 
appear to belong to the same in New Haven of my 
father's estate." 

He had children, appearing in New Haven Records: 

13. Thomas, born January 11, (not l^t, as Cothren says, following 
Dodd) 1685; married Elizabeth Bartlett, daughter of John, of Stratford, 
and the descendants appear in ' ' Cothren's Ancient Woodbury. "

14. panitl,'^ Thomas,- Peter.^ The New Haven 

land records attest that Daniel was an enterprising, 
active man, and left a considerable estate. In 1714, he 
received a deed, as husbandman, from Henry Bristoll, 
husbandman, for " current money." 

In 1717, he buys lands at the village of West Haven ; 
and in 1718, he has lands at " Old Field," at " Honey 
Hill," "Shingle Hill," and at "Long Hill," then con- 

He receives many other conveyances down to 1733, 
in one of which he and Isaac Beecher are joint grantees 
of Daniel Clark, of lands in West Haven ; considera- 
tion, £50. 

In 1710, he joins with Eleazer Prindle, of Milford, 
and with Xathaniel Beecher and James Browne, of 
New Haven, in buying, in equal shares, from Isaac 
Jones, two hundred and fiftv acres of land. The land 
was in Wallingford on the " old road from New Haven to 
Hartford," and must have been in Northeast Meriden. 
The writer lived, when young, on the same road, still 
known as " the old road." The consideration for the 
above mentioned two hundred and fifty acres was £79, 
3s., 4d., " pine money of New England," (silver). The 
land was originally granted to William Jones, Esq., 
father of grantor, by the General Assembly, January 
1, 1685. 

Daniel's will was proved in New Haven, February 12, 
1760. His wife Abigail and sons Daniel and Thomas 
were his executors. He left his wife Abigail the use of 


one-half his dwelling; one-third his barn, lands and 
meadow; one horse, one cow, and half his household 
goods. To his son Daniel, of Woodbury, his lands 
there. To his son Thomas, of Waterburj, his lands 
there. All the rest of his property, except £5 to Daniel, 
was to be divided into eight parts and divided one each 
to his children : Daniel, Thomas, Abigail Smith, Esther, 
Lois Caudee, Eunice Clark, Hannah Smith, and the 
eighth part to the children of his daughter, Sarah 
Bunnel, subject to her life use. Each had a right in 
the homestead of £4, 2^., 10^., and in all £28, I85, Id., — 
the balance to Lois being lands at the Cove near Kim- 
berleys and west of Esther, near the widows, and £5, 55., 
in movables. 

The following children appear in New Haven town 
records, to Daniel : 

16. Abigail, born May 29, 1716; married Smith. 

17. Esther, born June 18, 1718. 

18. Daniel, born February 4, 171-^; of Woodbury. 

19. ToiO, born November 30, 1721; married Caleb Candee, and 
appears heretofore on page 16. 

20. Thomas, born August 12, 1723, of Waterbury.

a committee to view Mattatuck (now Waterbury. Con- 
necticut.) He signed the planting articles, but did not 
settle there: two of his children did. He died Septem- 
ber 13, 1089 ; his widow, February 24, 1098. His house 
was just at the north part of the village, fronting Main

He had advanced his children £265, His widow had 
a legacy from Doctor John Olmstead's widow. Their 
children were : 

2. Rebecca, born Januar}', 1643; maiTied Joseph Woodford, and 
removed to Northfield, Massachusetts ; the}^ had three children. 

3. Mary, born March. 1645: married Thomas Bascomb, of North- 
ampton, Massachusetts. 

4. John, born January, 1647; settled in Waterbury, but returned 
to Farmington, where he died, with no issue, in 1696. Bronson* says; 
• 'If he did anj'thing worthy to be remembered, history has taken no note 
of it." He did, however, November 8, 1689 — being entitled under 
the law of Connecticut to a double portion in the distribution of his 
father's estate as eldest son — voluntarily and kindly relinquish it by 
agreement of record of that date, "out of his natural love and affec- 
tion unto his brothers and sisters." f 

5. Thomas, born March 2, 1650; married and lived in Waterbury 
and Farmington, and left descendants.

By the agreement of distribution, the lands went 
equally to the boys ; they to pay the girls enough to 
make them even in country pay — all advancements to 
anv of the children to be taken into account. 

10. $amurl,- Thomas/ married, December 20, 1683, 
Mary Hart, daughter of Thomas' Hart, of Farmiogton, 
by his 1^* wife, Ruth Hawkins. Thomas was son of 

Stephen HartMvas in Cambridge in 1632. Mr. Savage 
says he was perhaps brother of Edmund, of Dorchester 
and Weymouth, who came probably in the " Mary and 
John," in 1630; or of John, who came in the "AVilliam 
and Francis,"' embarked in London, March, 1632 ; or of 
Vjoth. He was freeman in Cambridge Ma}^ 14, 1631 ; 
removed to Hartford; thence to Farmington, where he 
was Representative in 1617, and generally after to 1660. 
He was one of the founders of the Church in 1652, and 
its Deacon. He had no children by his 2""^ wife Marga- 
ret, widow of Arthur Smith ; died in 1683. His widow 
lons^ outlived him. He had John, probablv of New 
Haven ; Stephen, of Farmington ; and Thomas ; besides

daughters Sarah, who married Thomas Porter, and

Thomas Hart,- Stephen,^ died August 27, 1726, in his 
83rd year, makins^ him born about 1644. He married 
1-^' Ruth Hawkins, born October 24, 1649, daughter of 
Anthony Hawkins, of Windsor, by a wife who died in 
1655. Anthony Hawkins removed, in 1656, to Farming- 
ton, where he married Ann, widow of Thomas Thomp- 
son, and daughter of Governor Wells. He had by his 
1** wife, Mary, who married John Judd, Ruth ; and 
John, who died unmarried ; by his 2"^ wife, Sarah, who 
died young, Elizabeth, who married Brinsmead; and 
Hannah, who married Richard Seymour. Anthony 
Hawkins was Representative seventeen sessions; he is 
named in the Charter of Connecticut, April 29, 1662 ; 
and was Assistant in 1668-70. He died in 1674. 

Thomas Hart filled many civil and military offices, 
including being Representative several years. He ap- 
parently married the 2'"^ time, and had several children 
by the 2"'^ marriage. Mr. Savage's account of him is 
quite unsatisfactory, and the 1*^ marriage appears in the 
corrections in the third volume. 

Samuel iTewell joined the Church in Farmiugton 
December 11, 1687, and his wife June 9, 1687. He died

1. ^OljU JtOVtoU, was of Branford, Connecticut, at 
the date of the first page of the town records, July 7, 
1640, in a list among whom lands were to be divided. 
His name appears repeatedly to 1648, in similar lists. 
When he sold his lands does not appear. 

The name of Francis Xorton appears later than 1646, 
and o^enerallv with that of John. Francis is also called 
Senior, and Goodman. Francis sold his last division 
May 16, 1657, by a very short conveyance: 

"May 16, '57. This certifies, that I, Francis Norton, hath sold to 
"Lawrence Ward and Francis Linsley all my last division of upland 
"and meadow to them and have their hcires forever." 

Doratha Xorton,the wife of John, died or was buried 
in Branford, January 24, 1652 (165t). His 2"^^ wife, 
Elizabeth, died there Kovember 6, 1657. John Xorton 
married 3''^' it is said, Elizabeth Clark, said to have been 
sister of John Clark, of Saybrook, Connecticut. She 
died in Farmington, Connecticut, November 8, 1702. 

John bought property, September 29, 1659, in Hart- 
ford, Connecticut, of Jasper Gunn, which he sold Feb- 
ruary 22, 1664, to John Spencer. It is not known that 
he resided there. He is said to have been a proprietor 
In Farmington prior to 1659. Joined the Church there 
October, 1661. He died there November 5, 1709. 


174 NORTON. 

Francis Xortoii, of Branford, removed thence, and 
was drowned in Milford, February 3, 1667. I think he 
tlien lived there. He appointed his cousin John Nor- 
ton, of Farmington, and Joseph Nash, of Hartford, 
his executors, and left to John Norton £15. The will 
was dated January 28, 1666. The word cousin then 
generally meant nephew. 

Francis is said, in a pamphlet published by Albert 
B. Norton in 1856, to be the son of Francis, and John to 
be the son of Richard, of London, brother of the lirst 
Francis, and that both were sons of William, of Bed- 
fordshire. This is not improbable, but I know no proof. 
(See post page 181.) 

John, of Farmington, had children: 

2. Elizabeth, married, November 24, 1668, John Plum, of ^Milford, 
Connecticut, baptized in 1646, son of Robert and ^lary (Baldwin) 
Plum, of INIilford. Mary was daughter of Irylvester,-* (died on passage 
in 1638,) Sylvester,- Henry,- Richard,i of County Bucks, England. 
(See, for ancestors and descendants, "Baldwin Genealogy,") John 
Plum was a man of distinction. 

3. Hannah, married, January 3, 1666, (probably 1666,) Samuel 
North, of Farmington, Connecticut. 

4. Dorothy, born in Branford, :\[arch 6, 1649; married Dickinson. 

5. 3»0l)lt, born in Branford, May 24, 1650. + 

6. Son, born October 14, 1657, and died January 18, 165^. The 
name is plainly written in Branford Records, but I cannot tell what it 
is. I once read it John, as did several others, and the Washington 
pamphlet has it so. The Guilford manuscripts have it John, corrected 
in pencil to Felix. The name occurs five times, twice to this son, born 
and died. The same name occurs as born August 3, 1662, to Samuel 
Plum, and Savage gives that Josiah. It occurs as born April 20, 1652, 
to Robert Abut (Abbot), and :Mr. Savage calls it Joseph. . It occurs 

NORTON. 175 

iu the distribution of Abbot's estate in Brauford records, next fol- 
lowing John, while Savage says Joseph is omitted. I cannot tell what 
the name is, but feL'l certain it is neither John nor Felix. 

7. Samuel, baptized May 30, 1659; died August 21, 1659, iu Farm- 

8. Thomas, born about September, 1660; married, June 7, 1700, 
Hannah Rose, and died May 2, 1729. 

The church records of Farmington show that John 
Norton's children were baptized October, 16(31, said to 
be Hannah, aged about 12 years; Dorothy, about 10; 
John, about 8; and Thomas, about 13 months. These 
ages were no doubt a careless guess of the clergyman. 

5. ^oijU," John,Mjorn in Branford, May 24, 1G50; 
lived in Farmington, Connecticut, where he died, April 
25, 1725. lie married Ruth Moore, born January 5, 
1()57, daughter of Deacon Isaac and Kuth (Stanley) 

Deacon Isaac Moore, first of Farmington, was one 
of the first settlers of Xorwalk. He married at Hart- 
ford, December 5, 1045, liuth, daughter of John Stan- 
ley. John Stanley died on his passage to Xew England 
in 1034, leaving three children, one of whom died 
before March 3, 1035. Tlie other two, John and Ruth, 
were committed to their uncles, Thomas and Timothy. 
The son John was a Captain in King Philip's War. 
The uncles, Thomas and Timothy Stanley, both after- 
wards settled in Hartford. Timothy came in May, 1034 ; 
Thomas sailed from London in 1035. 

Deacon Moore was Representative for Norwalk in 
1057. About 1000, he went back to Farmington, where

he was a Deacon, and maiTied, late in life, Dorothy, a 
danghter of Rev. Henry Smith, of Charlestown, who had 
heeo widow of three husbands. He was living in 1705. 
He had daughters Ruth, Sarah, Mary and Phebe, but 
no sons. He was Sergeant in 1619, and may be the 
Isaac Moore wbo came in the ship "Increase," in 1635, 
from London to Boston. 

9. Ruth, married, February, 1700, or ITOA, Thomas Seymour, of 
Hartford, Connecticut, and probably died July 19, 1710.

among others; a son. Lieutenant "William Boltwood, of Amherst, born 
February 4, 1725, who was the father of William Boltwood. of the 
same place, born May 4, 1766, who was father of Lucius Boltwood, 
born March 16, 1792, (graduated at "Williams College in 1814.) an 
attorney in Amherst, who was father of Hon. Lucius Manlius Bolt-

of the Norton genealogy.

There is an early Genealogical Chart of the ^S'ortons, 
of which a description appears in the " Xew England 
Historical and Genealogical Register," Yolnme 18, pages 
225-230. That able genealogist, W. II. AVhitmore, fur- 
nished it for publication, and says it is almost the only 
case where he Las found a carefully-drawn pedigree 
brought by a settler. 

It is ornamented by arms, where they are mentioned 
here, the same arms being found in "Burke's General 
Armory," where his name appears.

Here ends the original pedigree. John, the son of 
William ^^' and Alice (Browest) Norton, was the Rev. 
John," born, it is said, May 6, 1606, in Starford (Bishop's 
Stortford), in Hertfordshire. He came to New England 
in 1634; settled in Ipswich in 1636; and in 1655, suc- 
ceeded Rev. John Cotton as minister of the First Church 
in Boston, where he died April 5, 1663. He left no 
children. His will mentions his brother William, of 
Ipswich, and child ; brother Thomas, of London ; mother, 
sister Elizabeth, and wife Mary. His widow's will, 
August 20, 1677, mentions cousin John X.; sister, Mrs. 
Lucy N.; cousin Edmund Fernely, of Westoreling Hall, 
in County Suffolk; his brother Thomas and sisters 
Elizabeth and Mary; and brother William Xorton. 

Rev. William." of Ipswich, brother of Rev. John, had 
a son Rev. John, of Hingham, Massachusetts, through 

NORTON. 181 

whom the pedigree descended to Professor Andrews 
Norton, of Harvard College, and in 1859 was in pos- 
session of his son, Charles Eliot Norton, Esq., the well 
known author, of Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

The pamphlet of Mr. Albert B. Norton makes Thomas 
son of 13 William and uncle of Rev. John, to be Thomas 
Norton the first settler of the name in Guilford; Francis 
Norton, brother of Thomas, to be the Francis Norton, 
one of Mason's stewards to New Hampshire about 1630, 
and father of Francis, of Branford; and John Norton, 
cousin of the first Eev. John, and son of Richard, who 
married Ellen Rowley, to be John, of Branford, literal 
cousin to Francis, of the same place. 

So far as I know, there is nothing improbable in any 
of this; in fact, the not common name Francis, of such 
relation to John, lends a probability to their being of 
this line; and Rev. John may have been most likely to 
enter up all the settlers of that line in New England. 
Still I know of no proof whatever. 

I give the pedigree for what it is worth, leaving the 
connection, if any, for further evidence. 

I am considerably indebted to that learned gentleman, 
Alvan Talcott, M.D., of Guilford, for information, and 
for a copy of the very scarce Norton pamphlet. 



1. lUtllam yijUCljOtt, or P^^ncheon. Mr. Savage 
gives the following account of him. He was associated

William Pyucbon settled tirst in lioxburj; was an 
assistant of the Colony. After some years, he mar- 
ried Widow Frances Sanford, " a grave matron of the 
Church in Dorchester." After his 2""^ marriage, and 
about 1636, he removed to found the town of Spring- 
field, so named probably from the place of his residence, 
Springfield, near Chelmsford in County Essex, England. 
He was a man of great enterprise, says Mr. Savage, and 
highly honored as treasurer before leaving the sea 
coast, and as councillor after until his publication of 
the dangerous judgments as to religion which he had 
formed thirty years before. For this he suffered indig- 
nity in 1651, when his book was, by our government, 
ordered to be burned; and lest the same form of purifi- 
cation might reach to the author, he went home, as 


more freedom was enjoyed, in liis native land/^ lie died 
October, 16G2, in his 72nd or 74tli year, f at AVyrards- 
bury on the Thames, near famous Runymede, in County 
Bucks. His wife died tliere, October 10, 1657. 

The Massachusetts Historical Collection, Volume 6, 
page 369, 4th series, has a sketch of him, as well as 
eighteen pages of letters (369 to 386), written by him 
to John Winthrop, and dated from Roxbury, April 22, 
1636, to Springfield, October 19, 1648. He settled first 
in Roxbury: but about 1636 removed to Springfield, of 
which town he was the founder. He there lived until 
1652, when he, with Captain Smith, his son-in-law, and 
Rev. Mr. Moxon, the first minister of the town, w^ent to 
England, never to return. 

On page 279, of the same volume, is a letter from 
Roger AVilliams, wherein he purposes to write to his 
old friend Pynchon (about 1649). Pai^e 284 is a letter 
from Williams to AVinthrop, received October 23, 1650,

t The portrait, in a verj' few of the copies of thio book, is from an engraving in the 
Register for October, 1859, taken from a portrait in the possession of the Essex Institute, 
at Salem, which has the inscription :

of Dr. Joseph C. Pynchon, of Springfield, Massachusetts. There is in that number of the 
Register a sketch of Mr. Pynchon, by the late Charles Stearns, of Springfield. I was not 
aware of it until my own sketch was written. The matter in the notes herewith is gener- 
ally from that article. Mr. Savage calls the place of his death Wraisbury. It is Wyrards- 
bury, pronounced Wraysbury, See " Murray's River Thames," page 266.

" cover what libertye conscience hath in this land." 

Mr. Prince, in his "Annals," says of him : "A gentle- 
" man of learning and religion. The 19*^ Associate, 
" mentioned in said Charter, and the 13^^* Assistant 
" made therein as their 6^'' Assistant, now comes over;

sons against whom (juo irarranto issued June 17, by 
Charles II., in 1G51. 

The Massachusetts Colonial Records have frequent 
and prominent mention of him. At the beginning of 
the first volume, he appears, with twenty-five others, as 
grantees of the fee of the lands of the Massachusetts 
Colony. He was present at the meeting, May 11, 1629, 
and the next day (in England) chosen Assistant, and 
thereafter to 1636 inclusive. He was present at the 
meeting of the Assistants at Southampton, England, 
March 18, 16|^; not at that on board the '-Arabella," 
on the 23rd of the same month, but was present at the, 
first in America, August 23, 1630. August 1, 1632, he 
was chosen treasurer for the next year, or until a new 
be chosen, and in May, 1635, his accounts turn out

all ricrlit. He was the first treasurer of the Colonv. 
There seems to have been confidence in his fairness, for 
in 1629 he was chosen arbiter bv the Brownes in a 
matter of theirs against the Company, of which Pyn- 
chon wa-> a member.^ 

At the General Court for March, 163i, he was fined 
£5 for not paying his rate without distraining, because, 
as he alleged, Roxbury was not taxed equally with 
other towns. This may have been merely for example, 
as the same Court remitted him £5 oft* of £25 of his 
ao:reement for the beaver trade. In 1635. he had bouo^ht 
land of Chicktanbut. 

In March, 163f,T William Pynchon, Esq., Henry 
Smyth (his son-in-law), William Westwood and five 
others were appointed to "governe the people att Con- 
necticott"' for the next year.

t " Early in 1636, they shipped their goods on board Governor Winthrop's vessel, the 
" 'Blessing of the Bay,' for the Connecticut river. The hardy emigrants threaded their 
" waj' across the countrj-, and arrived at their place of destination during the first days of 
"May." On the 14th of May, eight signed an agreement, a copy of which appears in the 
Register, Vol. 13, pages 295-297. 1st. They propose to get a minister, with whom to "joyne 
"in Church Covenant to walke in all the waj's of Christ." 2nd. They intended forty 
families, "yet not to exceede the number of fifty familys, rich and poore," on territory 
which in 1S59 had thirty thousand persons. There were other items, to the number of 
fifteen, one of which was that no one but Mr. Pynchon should have over ten acres in his 
home lot. "It is remarkable," says Mr. Stearns, "that not one of the twelve to whom 
"were made the original allotments of land (eight of whom signed the original agree- 
"ment), died there." 

In 1638, Mr. PjTichon paid more than half the taxes. Febmar>- 14, 1638, the settlers, 
finding they were not, as they supposed, in Connecticut, but >p\ithinthe limits of Massa- 
chusetts, chose Mr. Pynchon their Magistrate, by an lagreement in his handwriting in 
Springfield Records. 


In November, 1636, he is member of the Court of 
Connecticut.* In 1637, t he is questioned about impris- 
oning an Indian at Agawam, whipping an Indian and 
forcing of him ; probably done by Mr. Plum, also a mem- 
ber, as the Court adds: "The Court is willing to pass 
over Mr. Plum's failinccs a2:ainst an Indian." This was 
the date of the Pequot war. 

Among the Pynchon [)apersj is an account of ammu- 
nition received and delivered by him, which, in its 
strange names, ma}^ be of interest. There were 80 demi- 
culverin shot, round; 160 saker shot, round: 21 douVjle-

In June, 1641, William Pinchon, "gentleman," has 
full authority and power, for this year, to govern the 
inhabitants of Springfield.

to that on the River, which was not intended. This, 
savs Palfrey, is the lirst time the word Springfield 
is used, and he quotes Hutchinson as saying Pyn- 
chon's English home had been at Springfield, near 
Chelmsford, in Essex. ^ In 1G43, the commission was 
received. In 1645, the authoritv to hold Court ran to

^' a few days since, and containing many errors therein, 
"generally condemned by all orthodox writers that we 
"have met with;'' to indicate the truth and keep and 
preserve the people in the true faith and knowledge of 
Christ, and the clearing of themselves to their brethren 
in England, they protest their "innocency," and "on 
" the contrary, detest and abhor many of the opinions 
" and assertions therein as false, erroneous and hereti- 
" cal, and whatever is contained in it contrarv to the 
" Scriptures, and the generally received doctrine of the 
" orthodox Churches extant since the time of the last 
" and best reformation ;'' and for proof of their " playne 
meaninge," they condemn it to be burned in the market 
place at Boston, by the public executioner. They fur- 
ther " purpose, with all convenient speede, to convent 
'' him before tliem to lind out if he will own it, if he 
" does, God willinge, to proceed with him according 
" to his demerits, unless he retract, both here and by 
"some second writings, to l)e printed and dispersed in 
'' England. " They also entreated Mr. Korton, of Ips- 
wich (ante-i)age 180), to answer the book with all con- 
venient speed. In May, 1651, Mr. Pynchon's mild re- 
traction appears : 

"According to the Court's advice, I have conferred wth the Reverend 
' ' Mr. Cotton. M>- Norricc and M' • Norton about some projects of the 
' ' greatest consequence in my booke, and I hope I have so explayned my 
"meaninge to them as to take off the worst construction, and it hath 
"pleased God to let me see that I have not spoken in my booke so fully 
" of the price and merritt of Christ's sufferings as I should have done for 


"in my booke I call them but trials of his obedience, yet intendinge 
"thereby to amplyfy and exalt the mediatoriall obedyence of Christ a^ 
"the only meritorious price of man's redemption; but now at present I 
"am much inclined to think that his sufferings were appoynted by God 
"for a further end, namely, as the due punishment of o^" sins by way of 
" satisfaction to divine justice for man's redemption. 

' ' Y*" humble servant in all dutj-f ull respects, 

"William Pynchon." 

The Court therefore, at his request, grauted him lib- 
erty "respectino; the present trouble of his famylv," to 
return home, and have Mr. Norton's answer to his 
book, and appear again at the Oetober session. It was 
then that his son-in-law, Henry Smith, was appointed 
to govern Springfield. They granted Mr. Norton £20 
''for his worthy paynes in his full answer to ^Ir. Pyn- 
" chon's booke ; " and taking into consideration '' how 
" farre Sathan prevayles amongst us in respect of witch- 
" craft, as also by drawing away some from the truth 
"■ the profession and practice of strange opinions, and 
" also considering the state and condition of England, 
'' Ireland and Scotland, and the s-reat thini2:s now in hand 
"there, appoint the 18th of the 4th month as a day ot 
"humiliation in all the churches of the Colony." 

In October, 1651, thev order Mr. Norton's book to be 
sent to England to be printed, and continue Mr. Pyn- 
chon's case to the May term, 1652, to allow him to 
consider his errors and heresies, and well to weigh the 
judicious answer of Mr. John Norton thereto, and sus- 


pended judgment iiutil that time. Mr. Pynehou re- 
turned to England that year.* 

The Court proceeded no further, he being beyond 
their reach, and very likely were influenced by Sir 
Harry Vane and others to commit no further religious 
excesses. In the 31st Volume Massachusetts Historical 
Collections, page 35, is the following "copy of a letter 
to Sir Harry Vane : '' 

"Honored Sir — We received your letter, bearing date the IS'h of April, 
" 1652, written in the behalf of Mr. William Pincheon, who is one that 
" we did all love and respect. But his book, and the doctrine therein 
" contained, we cannot but abhor as pernicious and dangerous; and are 
"much grieved that such an erroneous pamphlet was penned by any 
" New England man, especially a Magistrate amongst us, wherein he 
" taketli upon him to condemn the judgment of most, if not all, both 
"ancient and modern divines, who were learned, orthodox and godly, 
" in a point of so great weight and concernment as tends to the salvation 
"of God's elect, and the contrary which he maintains to the destruction 
" of such as follow it. Neither have we ever heard of any one godly, 
" orthodox divine that ever held what he hath written; nor do we know 
" any one of our ministers, in all the four jurisdictions, that doth approve 
"of the same, but do all judge it as erroneous and heretical. And to 
" to the end that we might give satisfaction to all the world of our just 
"proceedings against him, and for the avoiding of any just offense to 
" be taken against us, we causiil Mr. John Norton, teacher of the church 
"at Ipswich, to answer his l)ook fully, which, if it be printed, we hope 
" it will give your honoreil self and all indifferent men full satisfaction. 

" ^Ir. Pincheon might have kept his judgment to himself, as it seems 
" he did above thirty years, most of which time he haih lived amongst us 

* Mr. Stearns says that, on his return, he was accompanied by Rev. Mr. Moxon, the 
cler^'yman of Sprinj^'Rekl, and his family. Mr. Pynchon's family remained, and Henry 
Smith returned next year. It may be noticed, that I hare said Mr. Moxon returned with 
Mr. Smith, but Mr. Stearns is probably correct. 


" with honor, much respect aud love. But when God left him to him- 
"self. in the publishing and spreading of his erroneous books here 
" amongst us, to the endangering of the faith of such as might come to 
" read them (as the like effects have followed the reading of other erro" 
"neous books brought over into these parts), we held it our duty, and 
" believe we were called of God, to proceed against him accordingly; 
"and this we can further say. and that truly, that we used all hnvful 
" Christian means, with as much tenderness, respect and love as he could 
"expect, which we think he himself will acknowledge. For we desired 
"divers of our elders, such as he himself liked, to confer with him 
•'privately, lovingly and meekly, to see if they could prevail with him 
"by arguments from the Scriptures, which accordingly was done; and 
"he was then thereby so far convinced that he seemed to yield, for sub- 
" stance, the case in controversy, signed with his own hand. And for the 
"better contirming of him in the truth of God, Mr. Norton left with him 
" a copy of the book he writ in answer to him; and the Court gave him 
" divers months to consider, both of the book and what had been spoken 
" unto him by the elders. But in the interim (as it is reported), he 
" received letters from England which encouraged him in his errours, 
" to the great grief of us all, and of divers others of the people of God 
" amongst us. AVe therefore leave the author, together with the fautors 
"and maiutainers of such opinions, to the great Judge of all the earth. 
" who judgeth righteously, and is no respecter of persons. 

"Touching that which vour honoured self doth advise us unto, viz: 
" not to censure any persons for matters of a religious nature or concern- 
" ment, we desire to follow any good advice or counsel from you, or any 
' ' of the people of God, according to the rule of God's word. Yet we 
" conceive, with submission still to better light, that we have not acted. 
" in Mr. Pincheon's case, either for substance or circumstance, as far as 
" we can discern, otherwise than according unto rule, and as we believe 
" in conscience to God's commaml we were bound to do. All which we 
"hope will so far satisfy you, as that we shall not need to make any 
" further defence touching this subject. The God of peace and truth 
" lead you into all faith, aud guide your heart aright in these dangerous 
" and apostatizing times, wherein many are fallen from the faith, giving 
" heed to errours, and make you an instrument (in the place God hath 


' ' called you unto) of his praise to stand for his truth against all opposers

Roger Williams, in a letter to John Wintlirop, Jr., 
October 23, 1G50,''' refers to the matter of the book, 
wherein is some derogation of the blood of Christ. He 
says: "If it come to yonr hand, I hope to see it; how-

" discover what libertie conscience hath in this land." 
The name of the book was: "The Meritorions Price of

Norton's answer was published in London in lGo3, 
entitled : "-'A Discussion of that Great Point in Divinity, 
" The Sutterings of Christ, kc'' 270 pages. 

Pynchon published a rejoinder in 1055, 440 pages, 
quarto, dedicated to Oliver St. John, esteeming him an 
able judge, not only in controversies which concern the 
common law of the land, ''but also in divine controver- 
sies," and followed up the discussion in a book printed 
in 1602, called ''The Covenant of Nature made with 
Adam Described, &c." The address to the reader is 
dated : " From my study, AVray>bur3% February 10, 1661." 
He fled from Xew England to Old England to enjoy 
religious freedom.* Palfrey would seem to think that 

*Mr. Stearns, in his article, says: " It is not easy, at tliis time, to look back upon such 
" proceeding with complacency; they cannot but be regarded as the veriest ebullitions of 
" bigotry. Here was a man who hatl left home and friends and the comforts of ci\ilized 
" life for the sake of enjoyinfj religious freedouj ; had been among the foremost in the 
" councils of the colony; had jdanted two settlements, the last one in the midst of the 
" wilderness ; had borne more than his share in the toils and dangers of the Massachubetts 
" Colony; and had through all maintained a Christian character, secure beyond the charj;e 
" of inconsistency or taint; cutoff from influence and power, publicly condemned and pub- 
••licly insulted, for giving utterance to a doctrine in religion at variance, in nice points, 
" with the Churches and the General Court. Though Mr. Pynchon recanted, it is not to 
" be doubted that these facts and considerations weighed upon his mind in all their 
" injustice, and influenced him in his decision to return to England, and there spend the 
" remainder of his days. . . . That he was convinced of his alleged errors against his will, 
" and that one of his motives for returning to England was that he might enjoy the 
*' freedom denied him here, is evident from his subsequent action." 

" In 1655, his book was issued in a new edition in London, by Thomas Newbury, with 
"additions, in which Mr. Norton's book was disput&l by AVilliam Pynchon, Esq., late of 
" New England." The venerable controversialist endeavoreil, in his new edition, to "clear 
" several scriptures of the greatest note in these controversies from Mr. Nortons corrupt 
" exposition," and fully reiterated all his former opinions. This book covers 440 v>ages 
"quarto, and its leading doctrine, as stated on the title page, and as given by Cotton 
" Mather, is one which has been universally adopted by the orthodox Christianity of later 
" days. The writer was only a century or two in advance of his age, and in that consisted 
"his criiue." 


the Courts were bound to their course, as the violation 
of the law against heresy was matter of public scandal, 
and the law could not retain its authority and bow 
before "an ancient and venerated authority." The whole 
proceeding, however, seems to have been inspired by 
theological zeal, rather than care to preserve crerlit for 
law with the people of Massachusetts — a view sustained 
by the statement, in tlie appendix of Norton's book, that 
when Pynchon's book reached Massachusetts, a vesse 
was iust o:oino' to sail to Eno^land, and the Court there- 
fore hastened its action.* 

Mr. Pjaichon made a good selection for the town, of 
Agawam, of which he was, says " Barber's Historical Col- 
lections," the father. The settlers went there in 1635, 
and began to build a house on the west side; but as the 
Indians informed them the river overflowed there, thev 
built on the east side, " probably the lot afterwards 
owned by Mr. Pynchon, and still owned by his descend- 
ants." It is supposed they returned to Roxbury in the 
fall, and came agnin in the spring of 1636 to Agawam, 
called in 1640, b}" town vote, Springfield. The first 
settlers made an agreement, the second item of which 
limited the number of families from forty to fifty. The 
land was fertile, and the location a happ}^ one for trade. 
Articles could be sent down the river by boat, but the 
head of navigation was just above, so that we do not 
wonder that Mr. Pynchon dealt in beaver, and his 
letters related to trade and wampum as well as to spir- 
itual and civil affairs.

Henry Smith was Representative from 1641 to 1651, 
and with his minister, Rev. George Moxon, went to 
England in 1653, very likely through the influence of 
his father-in-law. Probably most of the children went 
with him. Mary staid with her uncle John Pynchon.

In May, 1051, as there was a present necessity that 
some care be taken of Springfield, they being destitute 
of a Magistrate, or other, to put issue to difference, 
our Mr. Henry Smith was appointed by the General 
Court for tht year ensuing, or until further order, to 
have full power and authority to govern the inhabit- 
ants of Springfield, and to hear and determine all 
" cases and offenses, both civil and criminal, that reach 
" not life, limb or banishment." The next entry is a 
dismissal to him, he having " urgent occasions to return 
home." He was quite prominent as long as he re- 
mained in Springfield; and says Mr. Morris, in his 
'• Early History of Springfield," a gentleman of capacity 
and culture. 

In Volume 51, Massachusetts Historical Collections, 
page 310, is a very business-like letter from him, ]^o- 
vember 2, 1640, to John Winthrop, relating to a power 
of attorney from the two sisters of John Alline, (per- 
haps Allen, of Springfield, 1639,) to John Porter, of 
Hingham, to receive their brother's estate. He says: 
'' Kow I was made executor by his will in my father's 
absence." As the debts had to be paid to this estate 
in corn, he proposes to pay what money is paid, and 
send the corn to Boston. His "father" means his 

In the proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical 
Society for 1869-70, page 309-311, is a letter from Henry 
Smith to his brother-in-law, John Pynchon, announcing 
the death of the father:

1. PJtUiam lUatlOtUOlilj, was of Cambrido^e, Mas- 
sachusetts, in 1632. He came probably, with his family 
of four children, in the "Lion," from London, arriving 
September 16, of that year.* He was freeman, Novem- 
ber 6, 1632. He removed to Hartford, Connecticut, 
June, 1636, "in the great exodus." Mr. Savage says 
he lived there " in the highest esteem, no man ever 
"more often chosen representative; for, between Octo- 
" ber, 1656, and May, 1675, hardly a single year missed 
" his service. He brought with him: 

2. Sarah, married, September 17, 1646, John Wilcox, son of .John, 
of Hartford. She had a daughter Sarah, born October 3, 1648, who 
married Lowe, and died soon after. Wilcox married again, and lived 
in Middletown. 

3. "William, who died young. 

4. Mary, married, about 1656, Thomas Stoughton, of Windsor, son 
of Thomas. Thomas, Jr., was an original proprietor in Hartford, and 
died September, 1684. Children- (l)John, born June 20, 1657; grad- 
uate of Yale. (2) Mary, born January 1, 1659; married, June 3, 1677, 
Samuel Farnsworth. (3) Elizabeth, born November 18, 1660; married 
l«t' in 1680, James Mackman, a rich merchant; and 2»'i. in 1699, John 
Elliot, Esq. (4) Thomas, born November 21, 1663; married 1st, De- 
cember 31, 1691, Dorothy, daughter of Secretary John Talcott; and 
2nd. in 1696, Abigail Lothrop; had eleven children; was a Captain; 

* Winthrops History of Massachusetts, Volume 1, page 9. 


and died January 14, 1749. (5) Samuel, born September 8, 1665, who 
had a son of the same name in 1702, and perhaps others. (6) Israel. 
born August 21, 1667, who had descendants, (7) Rebecca, born June 
19, 1673, who married, in 1694, Allerton Mather. 

5. John, settled in Farmingtou: had nine children, and died in 
1689. He was Representative in 1672-7; Assistant in 1679; had dis- 
tinction in the militia, and was of the standing Council for affairs in 
King Philip's War. Of his seven sons, five were Representatives. Of 
the other two I know nothing. 

William married 2"*^' July 2, 1644, Elizabeth Stone. 
(What relation was she, if any, to Rev. Samuel Stone, 
of Hartford?) 

6. Elizabeth, born May 17, 1645: married, November 22, 1662, John 
Terry, of Windsor, and had several children. 

7. Samuel, born October 20, 1646; died at middle age. 

8. 30 Oppll, born about 1648.4- 

9. Sarah, again, born March 17, 1650; married, November 10, 1669, 
Jonathan Ashle}', of Springtield, who removed to Hartford ; they had 
several children. 

10. Thomas, born about 1651; lived in Hartford; had seven chil- 
dren, and died in 1725. 

11. Rebecca, born about 1656. 

His will, dated May 16, 1675, was proved the 18th 
of the next October. His widow died in 1682, when 
Rebecca was unmarried. Mr. Wadsworth was select- 
man repeatedly in Hartford. In 1662, lie was one of 
a committee of three to pi'ocure " corn or provisions, 
" as they can agree w"' p''sons indebted to y'' Countrey." 

In 1665, he was member of the important military 
committee mentioned under Matthew Allyn. In 1670, 


he was chairman of the committee to equalize the value 
of the " several plantations." (towns.) August 7, 1673, 
when there was "a great appearance of danger by the 
" approach of the Dutch for our own safety and defence, 
'' till the general court in October next," the Governor, 
Deputy Governor, Assistants, and Captain Benjamin 
Newbury, Mr. Giles Hamlin, Mr. William Wadswortb, 
Captain William Curtice, Lieutenant William Fowler 
and Lieutenant Thomas Munson were empowered to 
act as the "Grand Committee of this Colony in estab- 
" lishing and commissionating of military officers, in 
" pressing of men, horses, ships, barques or other vessels, 
" arms, ammunition, provisions, carriages, or whatever 
"they judge needful for our defence, and to manage, 
" order and dispose of the militiae of the Colony in the 
" best way and manner they can for o' defense and 

He was representative in 1652, and in 1653, when 
they sent Captain Mason one barrel of powder. In 
1672, he vvas one of a committee of three to "hear the 
" Indian com[>laint8, and to draw the same to an issue 
" as near as they can, and to present the same for con- 
" firmation." 

8. ^oorplj iUatlOltiartlj,- son of Willam/ born 
about 1648, in Hartford, Connecticut, became a noted, 
courageous and leading man. He was a lieutenant, 
and served in King Philip's war. " But he is most 
" remembered with gratitude in our times as the pre- 
" server of the Charter, in opposition to the demand of 


" the Royal Governor, by the perilous expedient of 
"extinction of the lights in the Council Chamber, Oc- 
" tober 31, 1687, and hiding the parchment in the great 
" oak/' * 

He married Elizabeth, daughter of Bartholomew Bar- 
nard, of Hartford. Her father was perhaps, but not 
known to be, son of Bartholomew Bernard, of Boston 
in 1651, carpenter, who had perhaps been, a dozen years 
before, at York, and brought from England a family — 
Matthew, and perhaps others, of whom no record is 

Bartholomew Barnard, of Hartford, married, October, 
1647, Sarah, daughter of Thomas Birchard, and died 
in 1698, leaving John, Joseph, and four daughters, Eliz- 
abeth Wadsworth, Sarah Steele, born December 3, 1648, 
Mary Bemis, and Hannah, unmarried at the date of his 
will, in 1692. 

Mr. Bartholomew Barnard had the bad luck to be 
lined twice by the Council, October 11, 1675, once 2^;. 6d. 
for " neglect of his standing upon guard," and 55. for 
''his son's shooting of his gun;" but that he was still 
held in respect, is shown by the then honorable title 
of Mr. 

Of Thomas Birchard, it may be said, he was of Rox- 
bury; came in the " Truelove," from London, in 1635, 
aged 40; with wife Mary, aged 38 ; and probably chil- 
dreJi : P^lizabeth, aged 13; Mary, 12 ; Sarah, 9 ; Susan, 
8 ; John, 7; and Ann, 18 months. He was freeman May

17, 1637, when the spelling is Bircher. In the custom 
house record, at London, it is Burchard, and he wrote 
it Birch wood. He removed to Hartford, where he was 
an original proprietor, though not a tirst settler. He 
removed again to Say brook, whence he was represent- 
ative in 1650 and '51, and died in 1684. He may have 
gone back to Roxbury, where it appears by the Church 
records tbat '^Goodwife Birchard was buried 24 March, 
1655;" but perhaps she was the wife of a Thomas who 
died October 3, 1657, in the adjoining town of Dor- 

Joseph Wadswortb had by Elizabeth, his V^ wife:

16. ^attttatl, married Aaron Cooke, ^ who was born in 1689, son 
of Aaron, ^ Aaron,- Aaron, i (See antt-page 157.) 

17. Jonathan. 

His V^ wife died October 26, 1710, and he, perhaps, 
married 2"'^' Elizabeth, V)orn February 21, 1656, daughter 
of John Talcott, the second. lie married, late in life, 
Marv, dauirhter of John Blackleach, the vouni^er, who 
had been 1^' wife of Thomas Wells, the third: next of 
John Olcutt, and she survived Wadswortli. His father- 
in-law, Talcott, was representative, captain, treasurer, 
and assistant of the colony; commissioner, much in 
service in King Philip's war; sometimes having com- 
mand of all the colonv's forces. He died in 1688. 


John Talcott, the first, was as eminent in Hartford, 
and died soon after May, 1659. Wells was a grandson 
of Governor Thomas. 

Captain Wadsworth lived in lively times. He was 
propounded for freeman May 18, 1676, and next follows 
in the record a direction that soldiers wounded in the 
country's service " shall have cure and dyet on the 
"country acc't, and half pay, till they are cured.*' 
Wadsworth himself is then called '' L"^ Jos. Wads- 

At a meeting of the Council, September 6, 1675, as 
Sergeant, he was ordered to take twenty dragoons and 
pass up to Westfield, to assist them against the common 
enemy, " in the defending of the say'^ Westfield." In 
case he heard any of the Connecticut plantations were 
assaulted, he was '' forthwith to post away to relieve 
" the place or plantations assaulted." Should he be 
assaulted on the wav, he was to use his utmost endeavor 
'' to defend yourselves, and to destroy the enemie." 
The 9th of September, the dragoons with Sergeant 
Wadsworth were ordered to return forthwith. January 
14, 1675, he was appointed Lieutenant of the forces 
belonging to Hartford county. 

In the Connecticut Colonial Records, Volume 3, pages 
392-4, are the rules for governing the soldiers. 

The first provides for blasphemy: having the tongue 
bored through with a hot iron. 

The second, oaths and acts in derogation of God's 
honor: loss of pay, and other punishments at discretion. 


The third, absence from worship and prayer : pun- 
ished at discretion. 

Wadsworth's soldiers were dragoons, so that they 
must have been efficient for quick relief. 

In 1G89, he is chosen lieutenant for the train band 
of the north side of Hartford. In October, 1697, he was 
confirmed captain of the same band. 

In 1686, the attempt was made by the King to de- 
prive Connecticut of its charter. Sir Edmund Andros 
wrote from Boston to the Governor and company, ask- 
ing them, in obedience to the King, to resign it to his 
pleasure. In October, 1687, " Sir Edmund, with his suit 
" and more than sixty reguh^r troops, came to Hartford 
" when the Assembly were sitting, demanded the Char- 
" ter, and declared the government under it to be dis- 
" solved." The well-established tradition is given l>y 
Trumbull in his liistory."^ The Assembly strongly ob- 
jected, and Governor Treat seems to have argued the 
matter at length. " The important matter was debated 
^' and kept in suspense until the evening, when the 
" Charter was brought and laid upon tlie table where 
" the Assembly were sitting. By this time, great num- 
'^ hers of people were assembled, and men sufficiently 
"bold to enterprise whatever might be necessarj' or ex- 
" pedient. The lights were instantly extinguished, and 
" Captain Wads worth, in the most silent and secret 
'' manner, carried off the Charter and secreted it in a 
" large hollow tree fronting the house of Honorable

" Samuel Wyllys, theu one of the magistrates of the 
" colony. The candles were officiously relighted, but 
" the patent was gone, and no discovery could he made 
'' of it, or of the person who had conveyed it away." * 

Sir Edmund assumed the government, and caused the 
word " Finis" to he put to the records. Secretary Allyn 
was made hy Andros a member of his Council, and we 
find him t writing to Andros, October 15, 1688, making 
"bold to inform your Excellency, that if 3^ou please to 
" make L"^ Joseph Wadsworth Lieutenant of the com- 
" pany of the north side of o' towne, and Mr. Xichols 
" of the South side, it will be most accommodating to 
" the people, as their habitations are settled.*' ^^hen 
deputy, in October, 1694, Wadsworth is styled Captain. 

In 1693, tbe royal governor, Fletcher, having tried 
in vain to get control of the militia, resolved to try 
force. October 26, he came to Hartford and demanded 
of the assembly the surrender, and commanded that 
the militia be summoned under arms that he might beat 
up for volunteers. But when the train bands had gath- 
ered with their guns, the Assembly declined. Governor 
Treat was ofl:ered a commission, but he refused it. As 
the train bands were ranged, Trumbull says : " The 
'•tradition is. Captain Wadsworth, the senior officer. 

"* Mr. J. H. Trumbull thinks Mr. Trumbull, the historian, got his account from George 

Wjilys, Secretary from 1735 to 1796, with whom he was in constant communication during 

his writing. George was grandson of Sanmel, on whose estate the oak stands, and who 

was Magistrate when the Charter was hidden. The office of Secretary was in the Wyllys 

f amil}- for ninety-eight jears. New England Histoiic aiid Genealogical Register, Volume 

23, page 170.

" was walking in front of the companies and exercising 
" the soldiers. Col. Fletcher ordered his commission and 
''instructions to be read. Captain Wadsworth instantly 
"commanded, 'Beat the drums,' and there was such a 
" roaring of them that nothing else could be heard. 
" Col. Fletcher commanded silence ; but no sooner had 
"Bayard made an attempt to read again than Wads- 
" worth commands: 'Drum I drum I I say.' The drum- 
" mers understood their business, and instantly beat up 
" with all the art and life of which they were masters. 
'"Silence! Silence!' says the Colonel, l^o sooner was 
" there a pause than Wadsworth speaks with great 
" earnestness : ' Drum ! drum ! I say; ' and turning to his 
"excellency, said: 'If I am interrupted again, I will 
" make the sun shine through you in a moment!' 'No 
" further attempts were made to read or to enlist men." 
So many people collected, and their feelings seemed so 
strong, that the Governor returned to New York.* 

Mr. Hollistery says: "This lively episode, like the 
" hiding of the Charter, rests upon tradition, but it has 
" been transmitted through such hands, and with so 
" little variation, that its accuracy was never for a mo- 
" ment questioned. Such a tradition is as worthy of 
" trust as a record. The story is in perfect keeping 
" with the traits of our people. As usual, the authori- 
" ties were only passive, while the active resistance came

'' from a less responsible source." (See also Holmes' 
Aunals, Volume 1, page 449.) "^ 

There is some record coniirmatiou of the Charter 
story. Wadsworth produced it to the Governor and 
Council, May 25, 1698 ; and " he affirming that he had 
" order from the Assembly to be the keeper of it," it 
was concluded it should remain in his custody. y 

It is also very strongly confirmed by a grant of the 
General Court in May, 1715, '' upon consideration of 
" of the faithful and good service of Captain Joseph 
" Wadsworth, of Hartford, especially in securing the
