THE HAZEN FAMILY. 

FOUR AMERICAN GENERATIONS. 



By Hbnry Allen Hazen, A.M., New Haven, Conn. 



rilllE origin of this family beyond the sea has not been traced. Recent 
L information locates a fanjily bearing the name in Ne\vcastle-on-Tyne, 
in the last century, and possibly the fact may atford a clue to the English 
home of the Puritan Edward. 

1. Edwaud' Hazen was the immigrant ancestor. The first mention 
of the name, which has been found, occurs in the records of Rowley. 
" Elizabeth, wife of Edward Ilassen, was buryed 1G49 Sept. 18." Ho was 
a man of substance and influence in the town ; was overseer or Selectman 
in 1650, 1651, 1654, 166u, 1661, 1665 and 1668, and judge of delinquents 
1666. In the records of surveys, Feb. 4, 1661, he appears entitled to 
"seven gates." These related to cattle rights on the town commons; the 
average number being three, and no one had more than seven. The inven- 
tory of his estate amounted to £404 : 7 : 8. 

Of his first wife, Elizabeth, nothing is known ; or where or how long 
they had been married. 

He married (2) in March, 1650, Hannah, dau. of Thomas And Hannah- 
Grant. He was buried in Rowley, July 22, 1683. His widow m. (2) 
March 17, 1683-4, Georg*' Browne of Haverhill, who Sept. 9, 1693, adopted 
her youngest son Richard as the sole heir to his large estate. Lieut. Browne 
d. Oct. 31, 1699, aged 76; his wife d. Feb. 1715-16. The children of 
Edward and Hannah (Grant) Hazen, all born in Rowley, were: 

i. Elizabeth, b. March 8, 1650-1 ; m. April 1, 1670, Nathaniel, son of 
John and Bridget-Harris oi Rowley. 

ii. Hannah, b. Septl 1653 ; m. William Oibeon, and d. before 1683, leav- 
ing three children. 

ill. John, b. Sept. 22, 1655. He is not mentioned in the distribution of 
his father 8 &state ; while the children of Hannah, deceased, do re- 
ceive their portion ; and Thomas receives two of the eleven shares, 
or the doul)le portion of the oldest son. John must therefore have 
died without issue. 
8. iy. Thomas, b. Feb. 2!>. 1657-8; d. in Norwich, Ct., April 12, 1736. 
3. v. Edward, b. Sept. 10, 1660 ; d. 1748. 

vi. Isahell; b. July 21, 1662; m. Jan. 16, 1680, John, son of Thomas 
and Ann- Wood of Boxford. 

vii. Pricklla, b. Nov. 25, 166-1 ; m. July 21, 1681, Jeremiah, son of John 
and Dorcas Pearson, of Rowley.

freeman. He was dismissed from the cliiuch in To|)slieid. to become one of 
the constituent members of the church in Box ford, in 1702; and in 1711 
again removed to Norwich, Conn., where he died April 12, 1 73-5, aged 77 
years. He lived in the part of Norwich called West Farms, and, with 
three sons, was one of the petitioners for its incorporation as a parish in 
171(i. It is now Franklin. He married .J;ui. 1, 1G82-3, Mary, dau. of

xii. Hannah, b. May 18, 1736. 

To the line of this .John it is probable that the extensive families in New 
Jersey belong, from which offshoots are found in Pennsylvania, and in 
Walsingham, Ontario, Canada. Among its present representatives are 
Aliraiiam Ilazen, Esq., a successful uierchant on Broadway, New York, 
and the Hon. Abraham D. llazeii of Pennsylvania, nuvv Third Assistant 
Post Master General. 

The last two children, Thomas and Hannah, Axe sot here, as probably their 
true pla(!e in the line. The record of their liirth is found at Lyme, Conn., 
where the birth of Thomas is entered 1722-3; probably an error for 
1732-3. If the record is correct, the " ./J^/ih and /o/w, ./r.," of Lyme, at 
same date, are not father and son, and no place can he found for the 
father of this Tiioinas in the line; while if we assume this easy slip of the 
clerk's pen, — and clerks do make mistakes, — the dilllculty disappears, and 
these children fall into a sequence so natural as to constitute a strong proof 
of its correctness.

wich. He lived in A'^oodbury, Conn., wiiero ho wnn a large pro- 
prietor in the part of the town which is now Washington. In 1 /74, 
ne removed to Harford, Vennotit, where most of his sixteen chil- 
dren married and Mettled. His land, or that of the family, extended 
acrosH the town along its north bound six miles, and included 10()0 
acres around the present village of West Hartford. He built in 1775 
the first two-story house in the town, in the north-cast corner on the 
Connecticut river road. It is still oecuitied, as it always has been, 
by his descendants, Asa,'' Allen,* and Charles Dana/ who is its 
present owner. He died Aug. 19, 1782. His posterity has Ijeen nu- 
merous, among whom have been the Rev. Austin,^ pastor in Hart- 
ford and iJerlin, Vt., father of the Rev. Allen, many years mission- 
ary in India; of Mrs. Stoddard, some time missionary in Persia, 
with her cousin, Austin Hazen Wright ; and of three other sons 
who are clergymen in Vermont and Connecticut ; the Rev. Jasper,* 
one of the oldest and most honored ministers and editors of the 
Christian denomination ; aiso Gen. William i?.,' of the U. S. Army,

10. Samukl* {Edward* Edward^). Note by Rov. ■Seth Chandler, of 
Shirley, Ma.s8. " In 1741), Samuel Ilazen purchased a farm in what was 
then called Stow-le;;, a .stniill strip of land soon after anMexe<l to Shiijey, 
forming its entire southern boundary. 'J'his estate, after many chang<^s and 
improvements, remains in posse».sion of the family of the fourth and fifth 
generations. He was chosen selectman at organization of the town in 
17o3, and hold the same ollice in after years. Few families pass thiough 
four generations like the Hazens of Shirley, maintaining such general good 
character and soslaining such unvariable thrift. A patient, faithful and 
honest industry, and a consistent ecouomy, are usually at the foundation of 
such success." Samuel m. Oct. 1, 172J, SarHh Harriman. She d. Aug. 1,
