EDITOR'S PREFACE. 



\j 



In works of this kind the preface, 
though placed at the beginning and 
meant as an introduction, is under- 
stood to be the last word of the 
authors or compilers. As both my 
dear friends and colleagues in this 
work have died long before the com- 
pletion of the volume, it devolves upon 
me, as editor and surviving member 
of the trio of compilers, to prepare 
this introductory word. It is not to 
be supposed that all who use this vol- 
ume will read the preface, but I am 
sure that I speak the wish of my 
colleagues when I appeal to their 
kinsfolk of the name and blood to receive this word, and in their 
names (the names of Gardner Asaph Churchill, son of Asaph 
[No. 702], and Nathaniel Wiley Churchill [Ko. 440]) I send the 
greeting which they would have sent had they lived to this time- 




GEORGE M. BODGE. 



A SKETCH OF THE PROGRESS OF THE WORK. 

The work, the completion of which now results in this volume, 
entitled "The Churchill family in America," was begun, in the 
Plymouth branch, in 1852, by Charles M. S. Churchill, of Milton, 
Mass. [No. 704], who collected much information in relation to the 
Plymouth branch, which otherwise would have been lost. This was 
preserved in manuscript, but was not published until after many 
years later, when his nephew, Gardner A. Churchill, received the 
material and began to utilize and add to it, with the purpose of pub- 
lishing a genealogy of the Plymouth branch of the family. The 
present writer's first acquaintance with this work was soon after 
this, about 1882, when Gardner A. Churchill, then a parishioner 
and intimate friend of the writer, came to advise with me as to the 
form and matter of a genealogical circula' of inquiry to be sent out 
to the Churchill kindred in America. Mr. Churchill published 

(iii) 



iv PREFACE 

and sent out several thousands of these blanks, to Churchills all over 
the country, and received answers from about one-third of those 
who received them. About one-half of the answers received gave 
the desired information, and many had to be appealed to again 
and again before satisfactory accounts could be obtained. Yet small 
as the returns were, the blanks then received have been, later, of 
great service. Mr. CUiurchill in the following years put a great 
amount of time, personal research, and money into the work of 
gathering material. His research was mainly by correspondence? 
searching of published historical works and records available in 
Boston and vicinity. Soon after 1882 Mr. N. W. Churchill became 
actively associated with him, and the work received in his person a 
great impulse, because he was deeply interested in the pursuit, had 
a remarkable memory and a marvellous capacity for gathering and 
recording facts and statistics, and then his business for many years 
was that of a travelling salesman, and as such he visited nearly all 
the cities in the northern States. I have at hand some forty of 
his business memorandum-books, which show that he filled in the 
first part of each book with orders for goods, while the opposite 
end was filled up with genealogical notes made at personal visits at 
the homes of Churchills or allied families, or records copied at town, 
church, and county offices. At the saine time N. W. corresponded 
with many whom he had visited and aroused to interest, who, later, 
sent him the results of their personal inquiries. This friendly 
partnership and cooperation of G. A. and IST. W. went on for 
many years, even until the death of G. A. in 1806 ; N. W passing 
over all the material he gathered to G. A., who recorded the same, 
and, wherever possible, arranged it in order, but kept a copy of all 
and returned the original notes and correspondence to N. W., and at 
the same time submitted to him his own collections, so that each 
had all the material, while G. A. had his mostly digested, arranged, 
and indexed for use, and N. W. had his undigested, but partially 
arranged in bundles of letters and note-books, numbered and labelled 
so that he could refer at once to any family of either branch. For 
many years the plan of the work had contemplated only the Plymouth 
branch, while it was found that a vast amount of matter was collect- 
ing relating to the Connecticut branch. So it was decided to place 
that in order so far as it could be readily collected, and publish it in 
connection with the other. Some time before his death G. A. made 
a statement of the progress and condition of the work, which he 
intended as an outline of a preface to the volume, and which fur- 
nishes in part the material of this present sketch. That shows that 
it was not intended to follow the female lines beyond the mention of 



PREFACE V 

their names and marriages ; and also that it was then thought that 
the Manhattan branch was an offshoot of one of the other branches, 
or of the Virginia family. "In 1887 G. A. had compiled and pub- 
lished in pamphlet form a brief account of his own line of the 
Plymouth branch, for private distribution, and some time before his 
decease he had decided to publish the material already in hand and 
had arranged it in order for that purpose. Eor two years after his 
death the work ceased, except that the correspondence was kept up 
by IST. W. with the families already interested. 

In November the writer, having returned to the vicinity of Boston, 
at the wish of the family of G. A. Churchill, became actively engaged 
in the work as editor and assistant compiler, associated with Mr. Asaph 
Churchill, son of G. A., who became the business head of the enterprise 
representing his father's family, and with N. W. Churchill as col- 
league. Thus we joined in the design to arrange and publish the 
six generations of the Plymouth, and all the material in hand of the 
Connecticut branches ; but after a brief survey of the field and 
the material, it was found that nearly all the living Churchill kin- 
dred belonged in the seventh to the tenth generations, and that, in 
order to make the book at all satisfactory, it would be necessary to 
add as much as possible of these generations. So the plan of the 
work was changed in extent, and it was also found to be desirable 
to add the families of the daughters as well as the sons of 
Churchills, as these allied families have been found in most cases 
more interested in their Churchill ancestry than many bearing the 
name. These changes vastly increased the work and of course 
extended the time and added immensely to the cost of the volume, 
the price of which, however, remains the same as for original sub- 
scribers. A prospectus of the volume was issued, with subscription- 
application attached, and subscriptions were soon received sufficient 
to warrant the issuing of the work, which it was supposed might be 
completed within a year, or two years, at least. But it was found 
necessary for IST. W. to go all over his vast mass of letters and notes in 
order to bring the work to conformity with the new plans. He had 
to do all this personally, as no one understood his notes or corres- 
pondence except himself, and when the writer issued a new set of 
inquiry blanks and these were sent out to all of the name who 
could be reached, an enormous additional correspondence was at 
once imposed upon both IST. W. and the editor. Mr. Churchill was 
conducting an exacting business in Boston, and could devote little 
time during the day, but worked late into the nights often, and far 
beyond his strength. This work went on thus until the summer 
of 1901, when Mr. Churchill's health broke down and he was 



vi PREFACE 

obliged to abandon the work entirely, and the completion of the 
volume thus devolved upon the writer, with the irreparable loss 
to all of the vast amount of valuable personal information w hich 
Mr. Churchill held in his memory about the men and women, 
their places of residence, business, characters, etc., which 
he intended to give the writer, after the outline of the plan 
should be completed. He never prepared anything of biography, 
but gave the names and dates of birth, marriage, and death, in his 
manuscript, while many times in his conversations about the people 
he would give vivid and interesting descriptions of their homes, oc- 
cupation, habits, and personal appearance. Thus the writer has 
been obliged to depend upon information derived from correspond- 
ence with later members of the families for sketches of the head of 
each family, which in many cases have not been obtainable. 

The great mass of Mr. N. W. Churchill's notes and correspondence 
was turned over to me in the fall of 1901, and I was obliged to go 
over every note and letter, and arrange the same in indexed files, in 
order to make proper comparison, and to make additions and cor- 
rections. This proved to be a prodigious task and, together with 
the increasing correspondence and final preparation of the matter 
for printing, greatly delayed the work. For this delay also the 
members of the family, many of them, who have failed to respond 
to our earnest and repeated appeals for the simplest information 
about their own immediate families, are largely responsible. Our 
correspondence with the kindred in all the branches has been mainly 
pleasant, and both my colleagues greatly prized the cordial approval 
and ready help received from their kinsfolk. From some lines it has 
been learned that among them a profound indifference and ignorance 
as to their ancestry had prevailed till their interest had been excited 
by news of this enterprise. Some have, for a time, misled our com- 
pilers by returning as authentic information what afterwards was 
found to be only hearsay, and without any foundation in fact. 
G. A. Churchill speaks of the notion that he found prevailing in 
some directions, as to the descent of the emigrant Churchills, John 
of Plymouth, and Josiah of Connecticut, from the Duke of Marl- 
borough, and points out the absurdity of the claims from the simple 
fact that the duke was not born until 1650, many years after the 
emigrants were settled and married in this country. After a very 
exhaustive search with the best heraldic authority in England and 
America he was satisfied that American Churchills, with the excep- 
tion of the Virginia family, descendants of William, have no claims 
whatever to a coat-of-arms, even if it were possible for an American 
to receive an English coat-of-arms. Coats-of-arms do not descend 



PREFACE vii 

by inheritance, except to the heirs of the person to whom such coats 
have been granted by the king. It is to be regretted that our senior 
compiler was misled by an English correspondent, W. H. Churchill, 
who sent him a book-plate copy of a coat-of-arms of a Churchill line, 
which copy was photographed and sent out to many of the family. 
Mr. Churchill sent it, he said, as a sample of what one of the 
English connection had worn, and a reference to the committee on 
heraldry very quickly showed it to be of recent granting, and of no 
particular interest to American Churchills. Indeed, the photograph 
shows it to be a composite, made up for some Churchill who had 
married into a name having a coat-of-arms of more importance than 
his own. Mr. G. A. Churchill, in the remarks on the family above 
alluded to, says : 

Those who shall, from family interest or general curiosity, peruse the follow- 
ing pages will find little that is marvellous, brilliant, or grand, in the history of 
those whose names are recorded. They will find rather, illustrated, the virtues 
of the honest artisan, the peaceful tiller of the soil, the hardy seaman. They 
were mostly Christian men and women, self-reliant, courageous, and determined. 
In three wars our ancestors have borne an honorable part, and in the late Civil 
War many of the name or kindred have served with credit on land and sea. For 
myself, I am abundantly satisfied that the character of our ancestors in America 
needs no lustre borrowed from any foreign patent or title of nobility. 

In addition to what our compilers have done in the Plymouth 
branch, it may be stated here that in the Connecticut branch Amos 
Churchill of Hubbardton, Vt. [see page 386, No. 105, Conn.], col- 
lected much material concerning his own line, from his grandfather 
down to his own generation, and published a series of articles in 
the "A^ermont Historical Gazetteer'' in 1851, containing much 
valuable information about that line, though his traditions of the 
ancestry back of his grandfather were entirely erroneous, showing 
that he never consulted the records in Connecticut or elsewhere, and 
depended solely upon his own memory of the traditions in his 
father's family. 

In the Manhattan or New York branch nothing has been pub- 
lished and no research had been made until N. W. Churchill dis- 
covered, about 1897 or '98, that this was a distinct branch ; and as 
the old records of that colony are very meagre and irregular, the 
results of our investigations are rather unsatisfactory. At the time 
of the death of N. W. he had made but little progress in the 
compilation of this branch, and among his last words to me was 
the charge " do the best you can with the papers, for there are 
many excellent families whose records we have not yet filled." I 
have tried loyally to fulfil that injunction, with what result may be 
seen. 



viii PREFACE 

The movements of the generations of the Churchill family are 
illustrative of the migrations of the New England families in 
general. Three generations remained comparatively near the coast, 
while the fishing, lumbering, and ship-biiilding interests afforded 
occupation sufficient for the rapidly increasing families of sons and 
daughters, and while the farming lands were yet plenty, near at 
hand ; but when the old settlements were all taken up and it 
became necessary for the younger generations to purchase land, 
they began to reach out for free homesteads. Western Massachu- 
setts became a goal for both the Plymouth and Connecticut branches, 
and later, when the lands of Vermont were opened up, we find both 
branches represented there; and then, a generation later, when 
Northern New York and a little later the rich lands of the " Hol- 
land Purchase'' were offered, we find families from many lines of 
each branch among the settlers, and thence to the middle West 
went many sturdy settlers of the Churchill blood, after the War of 
1812, in which they bore an honorable part. When the eastern 
timber lands of Maine and the cheap homesteads of Nova Scotia 
and New Brunswick were offered, many from the Plymouth branch 
removed thither and settled, as will be seen. Now descendants of 
all lines of the three great branches are scattered far over the 
continent, from ocean to ocean, and from Upper Canada to Mexico. 

EXPLANATION^ OF PLAN ; ARRANGEMENT OF MATTER, ETC. 

The system adopted for this volume is that of the New England 
Historic Genealogical Society, in its regular publication, the " Reg- 
ister," slightly modified in the numbering to suit the needs of this 
more extensive work. 

The emigrant ancestor in each branch is numbered 1, and his 
sons, 2, 3, and 4. The small figure at the right, and above these 
names, as in John,^ William,- etc., indicates the generation of 
each. The names enclosed in parentheses, following the name of 
each head of a family, show his line of ancestry. The Roman 
numerals opposite the names of the children show the order of 
birth, while the Arabic nuiubers opposite some of these names show 
the possible heads of Churchill families, and, wheii so found to be, 
are carried forward with the names, to the proper place in the next 
generation. In some cases names have been found to represent 
families, after the general enumeration was completed, so that it 
was necessary to designate their place by adding the letters, a, b, c, 
etc., as, for instance, 260, 260a, 260b, etc. In a few cases, for the 
same reason, such numbers have been assigned to daughters, when 



A 



PREFACE ix 

their families have been found too late to be placed in the regular 
order. In general, as will be noted, the families of the daughters 
are carried one generation under the family of their fathers. In the 
exceptional cases above mentioned, they are assigned numbers and 
carried forward, like the sons, to the next generation. The index 
will rectify these irregularities. A very few abbreviations have 
been used, as b. for boru, hpt. for baptized, m. for married, d. for 
died, dau. for daughter, etc. The effort has been to make the 
record the plainest possible, and the index has been prepared with 
the utmost care so as to involve the least confusion and trouble in 
the use of the book. The Connecticut and Manhattan branches 
have been marked along with the running title, to facilitate the 
work of tracings families. 



ACKXOWLEDGMKNTS OF ASSISTANCE. 

Among the many whose courtesy and kindly help have greatly 
aided the making up of this volume, I make mention here of a few 
in behalf of my colleagues and the family of Mr. G. A. Churchill, 
who undertook the publication in respect to his memory and his 
known wishes, and express their gratitude to their kindred and 
friends throughout the country. I will say that many of those 
who may have assisted, by personal interviews, are now unknown 
to me, as no list was written down, but many were held by both the 
compilers in grateful memory. I have only the letters and notes to 
show the names of those most helpful up to the time of my 
association in the work. Some of these I will mention.

have received notice in the body of the work, and the names of 
others were held only in the memory of my colleagues. 

THE CHURCHILL FAMILY IN ENGLAND. 

While the compilers of this genealogy of the Churchill Family 
in America wish to avoid the appearance of intention to claim near 
kinship with the lines of Churchills in England which have received 
and transmitted the titles and perquisites of nobility, they deem it 
proper, and indeed expedient, to embody the facts of the early 
history of the name, at least, which is an inalienable inheritance, in 
Anglo-Saxon usage. Both my colleagues devoted much time and 
careful study to this matter, and both were in substantial agreement 
in the accounts which each personally prepared. G. A. Churchill 
adopted entire the account by Lediard, the biographer of John 
Churchill, Duke of Marlborough ; while N. W. carried the line a 
little farther back in the details of the earliest traditions, according 
to the English writers on heraldry, from whom Lediard made up 
his accounts, viz. : Guillim, Anderson, and Collins. Many critical 
works have been produced in later times, bringing the fallacies of 
early heraldic writers under the clear light of modern investigation, 
but I give the account practically as my colleagues prepared it. We 
have numerous letters from members of the Churchill kindred who 
seem to have exceedingly vague ideas of heraldry and the relations 
of American families to " coats-of-arms," and of what constitutes the 
proper right or claim of those whose ancestors, bearing a name 
which has been known in English heraldry, have yet no positive 



PREFACE xi 

evidence of descent from any family to which " arms " have been 
granted. To such, who have not the opportunity to consult standard 
works on heraldry, I would suggest a careful reading of the article 
on this subject in the Encyclopedia Brittaunica, and also the many 
references to John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough, under the latter 
title, " Domes-day Book," which contains the records of surveys 
in England up to 1086 A.D., showing the grants of " William the 
Conqueror " to his followers, with conditions of said lands, etc., con- 
tains the name of Roger de Courcil, who is said to have been the 
ancestor of the English and American Churchills. Armorial bearings 
or coats-of-arms were first known about 1120 A.D. 

The name Churchill is found in English records as Courcelle, 
Courcil, Curichill, Chercile, Churchil, Churchall, Churchell, and 
Churchill, the last being the accepted form for many generations. 




THE CHUKCHILL COAT-OF-AKMS. 

Sable. A Lyon rampant, Argent, debralsed with a hendlet Gules. 

I have not been able to find just when or to whom this coat-of- 
arins was granted, but in " Collins' Peerage," Vol. I., page 365 (foot- 
note), it is said to have been claimed by Sir John Churchill, son of 
Jasper, of Bradford, No. 16. The records of Herald's College, 
England, confirm this claim. He may have inherited it from ances- 
tors generations back, for all evidence I have found, possibly from 
Bartholomew (No. 5), who was knighted under King Stephen. 



ORIGIN OF THE NAME 



AND LINEAGE OP THE FAMILY 
CHURCHILL. 



OF 



A township in France called Courcil, now Courcelles, in Lorraine, 
was given as a manor to Waudril De Leon, son of Gitto De Leon, 
of a noble family, and himself a famous soldier, as early as 1055 
A.D. He had two sons, Richard and Waudril. The first became 



xii PREFACE 

the feudal lord of Montalban ; married Yoland, Countess of Luxem- 
burg, and from them descended the noble house of De Leon in 
France, at the p^-esent day. 

1. Wandbil Dk Leon took the name of his manor, and became 
Lord of Courcil ; married Isabella De Tuya, and had two sons, 
Roger and Rouland de Courcil, and thus became the founder of the 
Courcil (Churchill) family. 

2. Roger de Courcil followed William, Duke of Normandy, 
known as " William the Conqueror," into England in 1066 A.D., 
and when William became king, received for his services lands in 
the counties of Dorsetshire, Somersetshire, Wiltshire, and Shrop- 
shire. In "■ Domes-day Book," in the survey for Wiltshire, we read : 

" Roger De Courcelle holds Fisertone of the King. Bondi held it in the time 
of Kinir Edward and it paid 10 hides. The land is 10 Carucates. Of this there 
is in Demesnes 5^ hides, and there are 3 Carucates ; and there are 16 Villans 
and 12 Bordars and 14 Cottars with 7 Carucates. There is also a Mill paying 
20 shillings, and 12 aCres of meadow and 10 acres of wood. The pasture is half 
a mile long and as much broad. It was and is worth £25." 

The meaning of the old words is somewhat obscure. Cariicate 
means, in a general way, as much land as one plow would cultivate, 
varying with situation, soil, etc., from sixty to one hundred acres ; 
" hide " had about the same meaning, but without reference to the 
plow, meaning, perhaps, " a holding." " Demesnes," the feudal 
lord's own reservation, not held by his tenants ; Villans, Bordars, 
and Cottars were the tenants or serfs, of different classes, rated, I 
think, in the order of mention. 

Roger de Courcil married Gertrude, daughter of Sir Guy de 
Torbay, and took up his residence in Somersetshire. He had three 
sons, John, Hugh-Fitz-Roger, and Roger- Fitz-Roger. These younger 
sons married into landed families and assumed the names of the 
lands or failiily-titles to which they succeeded, dropping the name 
Courcil. 

4. John de Courcil, eldest son of Roger, married Joan de 
Kilrington, by whom he had a son, 

5. Bartholomew, who was knighted under King Stephen [1135- 
1154] as Sir Bartholomew de Cherchile, and who was made 
Master of the Castle at Bristol, holding it for the king. He married 
Agnes, daughter of Ralph Fitz Ralph of Tiverton, and had son, 

6. Pagan de Cherchile, who married ( ) and had a son, 

7. Roger de Cherchile, who married ( ) and had a son, 

8. Elias de Chirchil, who married the daughter of the ancient 
house of Columbers, and by her had three sons, Jolm and Giles, 
neither of whom left male issue, and 



PREFACE xiii 

9. AViLLiAM Churchill, the third son, who assumed that form 

of the name, resided at Eockbear in Devonshire, married ( ) 

and had a son, 

10. Giles Churchill, who married ( ) and had a son, 

11. Charles Churchill, who married Margaret, only daughter 
and heiress of Sir William Widville, who brought him considerable 
estate. They had a son, 

12. Thomas Churchill, who married Grace, daughter of Thomas 
Tylle, of Tylle House in Cornwall, and by her had a son, 

13. William Churchill, who married Mary, eldest daughter 
of Richard Creuse of Wicroft Castle in Devonshire. They had three 
sons : llofjer, who settled in Catherston, William in Corton, both in 
the County of Dorsetshire, and John, who settled in Muston in the 
same county. 

14. Roger Churchill, married Jane, widow of Nicholas 
INIeggs, and daughter of Sir William Reverell, of Bradford, (Jounty 
of Yorkshire, by whom he had issue. 

15. Matthew Churchill, who married Alice Gould, daughter 
of Jaujes Gould of Dorchester, County of Dorsetshire, by whom he 
had issue. 

16. Jasper Churchill, of Bradford, married Elizarkth Chap- 
let, daughter of John, of Harrington, in Dorsetshire, and had two 
sons, John and Jasper (the latter married and had four 
daughters). 

17. John Churchill, eldest son of Jasper, became a celebrated 
lawyer, a member of the Middle Temple, and by an extensive prac- 
tice considerably augmented his estate. His residence was at Min- 
tern in Dorsetshire. He married Sarah Winston, daughter of Sir 
Henry Winston of Standon, in Lincolnshire, and his wife, Dionese 
Bond, daughter of Sir Thomas Bond. They had two sons, William 
and Winston. The latter succeeded to the title and estate. 

18. Sir Winston Churchill, born in 1620, had his residence 
at Wooten Basset, in Wiltshire, and married Elizabeth Drake,

19. John Churchill, second sou of Sir Winston, was born 
May 24, 1650. at Ashe in Devonshire, and died near Windsor, June 
16, 1722. He was the famous English general and statesman. 
He was educated in part at St. Paul's school. At the age of fifteen 
he was appointed a page in the household of the Duke of York, 
afterwards James II. of England. (His sister Arabella was maid 
of honor to the Duchess of York, where she became a court beauty 
of renown, and a favorite of King James II.) 

By the favoritism of James, the influence of his sister, and his 
own ability, John Churchill was advanced to places of command in 
the army, by successive steps, until he became commander-in-chief, 
and one of the most renowned of British military generals, as well 
as an adroit and successful statesman. He received the highest 
rank in the peerage in 1702 as Duke of Marlborough. He married 
in 1678 Sarah Jennin-gs, daughter of Richard Jennings of San- 
dridge, in Hertfordshire, the favorite attendant of Princess Anne, 
a lady of beauty and grace, and of energy and ambition equal to 
his own. They had children : (1) Henrietta, b. July 19, 1681 ; 
m. Francis, only son of Lord Sydney Godolphin ; (2) Anne, b. 
1683 ; m. Charles Spencer only son of Robert Spencer, Earl of 
Sunderland ; (3) John, b. 1685, d. Feb. 20, 1703, aged eighteen years ; 

(4) Elizabeth, b. 1683 ; m. Scroop Egerton, Earl of Bridgewater ; 

(5) Mary, b. 1688 ; m. Viscount Mountheimer, son of Ralph, Earl 
of Montague ; (6) Charles, b. 1690, d. in infancy. 

The duchess outlived her husband twenty-two years, in the enjoy- 
ment of the vast wealth which was left her by the duke. She was 
a person of power and great influence in the politics of England. 
Neither of the duke's sons lived to have children, so that the title 
would have passed to the son of the oldest daughter, Henrietta, wife 
of Lord Godolphin, had he lived, but he died before the duke's 
death, and so the title passed to the famil}' of Anne, second 
daughter of the duke, and wife of Charles Spencer, the third earl 
of Sunderland. Robert, the first son of Anne, having died, the 
second son, Charles, succeeded to the title and became second Duke 
of Marlborough, in 1733. 

The title was now held in the Spencer family name and the suc- 
cession simply is given here.

Churchill, achieved considerable notoriety in the lioer war, and was 
in 1902 a member of Parliament. 

A COKJECTURE AS TO THE ANCESTRY OF AMERICAN CHURCHILLS. 

Referring to William Churchill, No. 13, it is found that he made 
his will March 12, 1599, making his youngest son, John, his sole 
executor, though, of course, the estate and title passed to the eldest 
son. John Churchill, the youngest son, born, it is thought, between 
1540 and 1550, married Elenor Meller, daughter of John Meller, 
of Kyme, in Dorsetshire, and settled at Muston in the same county, 
and was there a gentleman of respectable estate and position. They 
had nine sons and four daughters, viz. : (1) George; (2) Richard; 
(3) Johy, died soon ; (4) John ; (5) Robert ; (6) Maximilian ; (7) 
Thomas ; (8) Jasper ; (9) Matthew ; (10) Edith ; (11) Sarah ; (12) 
Jane ; (13) a child, died unnamed. The conjecture is that one of 
these nine sons was the father or grandfather of Joseph Churchill 
of London, who, in 1628, was a merchant in Fleet Lane, and was 
supplying Governor Endicott of Massachusetts Bay Colony with 
arms and other articles of outfit. 

/ It is possible that this Joseph was the father of John of Ply- 
mouth, or Josiah of Connecticut, perhaps of both. Both these 
emigrant settlers named their oldest son Joseph, according to the 
old custom. There is no evidence of any relationship of Joseph 
of London to John of Muston, or of any connection between the 
emigrant settlers and the said Joseph, or of any kinship between 
the said settlers, one with the other. 



FIRST GENERATION. 



1. 

JOHX CHURCHILL, the emigrant ancestor of the Plymouth 
branch of the family in America, was born in England and first 
appeared at Plymonth in Massachusetts, in 1G43, and died there 
Jan. 1, 16G2/3. 

It is a matter of regret that up to the completion of this volume 
nothing has been found to give even a clue to the birthplace, par- 
entage, previous residence, or occupation of this emigrant ancestor 
of such a large posterity. He was not in the tax-lists of Plymouth 
in 1632, but appears in 1643 in the list of the male inhabitants 
between sixteen and sixty years old, who are " able to bear arms." 
Diligent research through many ways and for many years has failed 
to add any authentic information to the bare fact that he was at 
Plymouth in 1643. In addition we have the following items : He 
married Hannah Pontus, Dec. 18, 1644 ; bought a farm of Richard 
Higgins, Aug. IS, 1645; was propounded freeman, June 4, 1650, 
and admitted June 5, 1651. He bought, Oct. 20, 1652, of Xathaniel 
INIasterson, then of Manchester, in INIassachusetts, ten acres of up- 
land lying at Wellingsley, in the township of Plymouth. In this 
deed Mr. Churchill is called " Planter." Mr. William T. Davis, 
in " Ancient Landmarks of Plymouth," page 331, has the following 
pertinent reference, which we quote verbatim : 

John Churchill, the progenitor of the Churchill family, who appeared 
in Plymouth in IGilJ, settled at Hobshale. His land was on the easterly 
side of the street, and extended from the southerly line of tlie field oppo- 
site to " Jabez Corner " to a point thirty feet distant from the souther^ 
line of the estate of Branch Blackmer. Here he lived and died, ^~\t ■■■ 
tradition exists concerning' the precise spot on which his house . ... situ- 
ated. There are some indications, however, in the records, that the old 
house owned by Thomas B. Sears and Amos Leshure, which was built by 
Elkanah Churchill, the grandson of John, occupies the site of the ancient 
dweUing. After the death of Mr. Churchill, the estate fell into the 
hands of his son Eleazer. 

In Mr. Churchill's will, given below, we note that he had acquired, 
by grant or purchase, quite a large land property. At his death, his 



2 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 

eldest son, Joseph, was about sixteen years old. The widow, with 
her six children, lived, evidently, in the " new honse," which he 
mentions as designed for Joseph, after the mother's death, while if 
Joseph marries before that event he is to have " the old dwelling- 
house." The widow was left the use of his whole property during 
her life. It is proper here to give some account of this wife and 
mother. 

Hannah (Pontus) Churchill was the daughter of William 
Pontus, who was at Plymouth as early as 1633, and was born in 
Holland or England in 1623. Very little appears in the records of 
Plymouth concerning William Pontus, although he was a land- 
owner and a citizen of some prominence and influence in the colony, 
and a member of the Court 1636-1638 inclusive. It is therefore 
gratifying to the editor of this volume to be able to add something 
to the sum of our knowledge of the parents of Hannah Pontus, the 
ancestress of the numerous lines of this Plymouth branch of the 
Churchills. 

In the notes of Mr. Charles B. Eichardson, gathered in his 
researches, in the Records at Leyden, and published in the " Historical 
Magazine," London and New York, December, 1859, Vol. III., page 
358 — lists of the names and occupations of some of the company of 
the Pilgrims who did not embark in the " Mayflower " are found. 
Among these are John Robinson, minister, from England ; William 
Pautes (Pontus), fustian- worker, from Dover. On page 263 of 
same volume William Brewster is mentioned a witness on behalf 
of " William Pautes, fustian-worker, from near Dover on his 
marriage with Wybra Hanson, maid, on the 4 December, 1610." 
Now Mary Pontus, the sister of Hannah, married, Oct. 31, 1645, 
James Glass, and in the Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. VIII. , page 
7, is found the birth of Wybra Glass, daughter of James and Mary, 
born Aug. 9, 1649. This name Wybra, so uncommon, would seem 
to indicate a close relation between Wybra (Hanson) Pautes (Pontus), 
of Leyden, and this granddaughter of William Pontus. The wife 
of Mr. Pontus was living in 1633, but she is mentioned as " Good- 
wife Pontus.'^ See " Mayflower Descendants," Vol. I., page 160. They 
lived, probably, near the southwestern limits of the " Mile and a 
half tract," as by maps of 1701. He died Feb. 9, 1653, leaving 
his small estate by will of 1650 to his two daughters. Mrs. 
Hannah (Pontus) Churchill married, June 25, 1669, Mr. Giles 
Rickard, as his third wife, and survived him six years. She died at 
Hobb's Hole, Dec. 22, 1690, " in her sixty-seventh year."

SECOND GENERATION

JOSEPH 2 CHUKCHILL (John ^). Born in Plymouth, 1647. 
He lived on the farm first owned by his father. Some time before 
1700 he built the house which is still standing on the easterly side 
of the curve in the road opposite the " Sandy Gutter Road." 
Little is preserved of his life. 

The following extract from Davis's " Landmarks of Plymouth," 
page 346, will throw some light upon his outward conditions : 

It will be remembered that the southerly line of the mile-and-a-half tract 
was bounded by the farm of Joseph Churchill, lying on the southerly side of 
Wellingsley. This farm extended from Oberry or Woeberry, as it was some- 
times called in the early records, across the Chiltonville road near Sandy Gutter, 
to the harbor, and was owned first by John Churchill, the progenitor of the 
Churchill family, and afterward by his son Joseph. The house, built by Joseph 
Churchill before 1700, is still standing, on the easterly side of the curve in the 
road opposite the Sandy Gutter road. The house, with the land immediately 
surrounding it, was sold, in 1715, by Joseph Churchill to his son Barnabas. 
Lemuel Churchill, son of Barnabas, sold a part of the estate to Thomas Faunce, 
who sold it, in 1767, to Jonathan Churchill, by whom it was sold in the" same 
year to John Faunce. In 1773 Charles Churchill and his wife Sarah, who had 
acquired an interest in the estate through her first husband, Isaac Churcliill, son 
of Barnabas, sold the other part to John Faunce, making him the owner of the 
whole. 

Passing through several hands, in 1822 the house was bought by 
Freeman Morton, and Mr. Davis continues. 

At the time of its purchase by Mr. Morton the shape and character of the 
house were ancient. Its roof was afterwards raised by him, the chimney 
reconstructed, and the modern expression given to its exterior which it now 
wears. Its interior, however, still bears the marks of extreme age, and is worthy 
of a visit by the antiquarian. It is now (188;:!) owned by Alvin G. Morton, son 
of Freeman, who remembers the Dutch oven it once had, with its opening in the 
yard, covered by a small shed-like structure protecting it from exposure. 

Joseph - Churchill married at Plymouth, June 3, 1672, Sarah 
Hicks, daughter of Samuel and Lydia (Doane) Hicks, and grand- 
daughter of Robert Hicks, the first settler of the name.

ELIEZER - CHURCHILL (John '). Bora in Plymouth, April 
20, 1652. Admitted freeman at Plymouth, 1683. He lived at 
Hobshole, upon a part of the original estate of his father, having 
come into possession of the first house built by him. 

According to the provisions of his father's will, and later 
arrangements with the mother and other heirs, Eliezer Churchill 
came into possession of that part of the original Churchill home- 
stead which contained the " old house.'' To this land was added a 
strip thirty feet wide lying next to Branch Blackmer, by grant of 
town, 1709. He died about 1716. In "Landmarks of Plymouth" 
Mr. Davis says : Eliezer Churchill 

probably built and occupied as a residence the building, taken down within a 
few 3'ears, which for many years was occupied as a shop by Ichabod and Edwin 
Morton. The grant was made for Eliezer " to erect a warehouse upon." This 
warehouse, if ever built, occupied a part of the site of the house of the late 
Edwin Morton.

WILLIAM 2 CHURCHILL (John 1). Born in Plymouth in 1656 ; 
lived in Plynipton and died there Oct. 5, 1722. He inherited lands 
in Punkatussett, now Plympton, and was among the first settlers in 
that jDart of old Plymouth, and was the progenitor of the Plympton 
branch of the family. Mr. Churchill and his wife were members of 
the church in Plymouth. 

From manuscript notes of Mr. Lewis Bradford, town clerk of 
Plympton for mauy years, we have the following extract : 

I made Mr. Isaac Churchill, Senior, a visit, who is grandson of the first 
William, of Plympton. and, in 1826, is 85 years of age, to obtain information 
of him about the first generation in Plympton, but did not obtain so much as I 
had hoped, although hi.'^ memory appears to be good for a person of his age. He 
said that the father of the first William Churchill lived at Hobb's Hole, in 
Plymouth, but did not recollect hi.^ given name. William lived in a house which 
stood where the house of Mr. Isaac Churchill, Senior, now (1826) stands, as the 
said Isaac says, and which appears very highly probable from an agreement 
recorded in Book I., p. 40, Town Records. 

Married in Plymouth, Jan. 17, 1683, Lydia Bryant, daughter of 
Stephen and Abigail (Shaw) Bryant. She died Feb. 6, 1736, in the 
74th year of her age.

JOHN' CHURCHILL (Eliezer,- Joiix'). Born in Plymouth, 
Sept. 12, 1698, but removed iu youth to Portsmouth, N.H., and 
there spent his life, and died Oct. 7, 1769, aged 71 years 14 
days. The inventory of his estate, taken Oct. 28, 1769, was 
£129.18.9. His widow, Elizabeth, sold her dower for £15, in 
1770. A very interesting and precious letter, from his own hand, 
written some time in the year 1764, is still preserved in the hands 
of his descendants. It is the source of nearly all we know of his 
own family, and we regret that he did not tell more about himself. 
This letter was copied from a copy made from the original, by her 
grandfather Joseph, by Mrs. Mary W. (Churchill) Bailey, of Dysart, 
Iowa, in 1886. 

Letter written by Johx ^ Churchill of Portsmouth, N.H., 1764. 

When my son John was born, I wanted four days of being twenty-one years 
.old. I was born the 12tli day of Sept. 1(J98. My son John was born the Sth d;iy of 
Sept. Tuesday morn, 1719. Daniel was born Thursday Oct. 12, 1721. IMary, 
Born Wednesday March 4, 1724. Ebenczer Born Sabbath June 6, 1726. Arthur 
Born Monday Nov. 25, 1728. William born Tuesday March 14, 1732. Sanford, 
born Sabbath day May 20, 1733, Tobias born Sabbath, January 26, 17.':5. 
Martha born Satur<]ay Oct. 15, 1737. Elizabeth born Tuesday April 10, 1740. 
Benjamin, born Tuesday Oct. 13, 1741. Joseph born Monday March 25, 1744. 

Mary died Sept. 21, 1743, aged 19 years 6 months 17 days. My wife died 
27 of Dec. 1745. My son Daniel died in 1745. He sailed out of Boston, Master 
of a large ship in Nov. before bound for Loudon, and the hands perished for 
the ship foundered. He was married in Boston and had one child that is dead 
also. Arthur left me the 26th of March 1744, and went to sea, he left me the 
next day after Joseph was born and I have not seen him for more than six 
years and God knows whenever I shall. My son John was married in New 
York to his second wife and sent for his son John that lived with me and I sent 
him to his father. My Sons John and Ebeuezer both died sometime in 1751 with 
Small Pox at one time. As for John's children I know nothing about, Eb- 
enczer never married. I pray the Lord to t^anctify their death to me their 
father for the good of my soul, knowing that in a short time I shall go to them 
for they cannot return to me. My son Arthur after he first left me had the 
opportunity to come to Boston tvvice, and then sailed to England two voyages. 
The second voyage he was taken sick. I received a letter from him dated 
3 of Oct. 17.">2, from London, then he wrote me word that he designed to go to the 
West Indies and from there to Piscataway to see me if God gave him oppor- 
tunity but being led away by bad company he was tripanned by some means [ 
can't give account of, that he was obliged to go to the East Indies as a soldier 
for two years, when I first heard of it I was greatly troubled to think one v.^ith 
so good sense and learning as he had and as good a sailor as need cross the sea, 
should take no more care of himself, but be led away in so unhappy condition. 



14 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 

It has been a great trouble to me and ever will be, for day nor night never passes 
but that I think of him. for I am out of all hope of ever seeing him again. I 
hope God will be with him and help him and give him a heart of grace to return 
from all his evil ways. My son Arthur left me the day after Joseph was born, 
and I have heard from one Brewster, that he had got mate of an Indiaman, and 
in the year 1763 he enquired after him and heard that he was dead. 

Tobias died the 3 of August 1756 aged '21 years 3 mos and 17 days, and was 
buried in Tiiomas Cotton's orchard, his bearers were Samuel Hale, Benjamin 
Luce, Samuel Jackson, Joseph Jackson, Jonathan Long, and Edmund Loud, he 
was the first of my sons that died at home. My son William Sailed out of New- 
bury in the year 1755. I have heard one time aliout two years after that he was 
in lihode Island and I have not heard whether he is living or not, he has been 
gone nine years. Sanford died July 3, 1733, aged 6 weeks 2 days. 

Mrs. Bailey writes tliat the above John Churchill left valuable 
family records in the hands of his youngest son Joseph, her grand- 
father. These records she states went back to the time " our fore- 
father left England," but her grandmother told her, about 1861, that 
the records had been taken from the old chest where they were 
kept, and were destroyed or lost. John Churchill, of Portsmouth, 
appears in many property transactions, and is then designated " cord- 
wainer." His three sons, John, Benjamin, and Joseph only, of all 
his children, survived him, and evidently inherited his estate, as we 
find deeds from them disposing of their third parts of his property. 

John'' Churchill, of Portsmouth, married 1st, in Portsmouth, 
Mary Jackson, daughter of Daniel. She died Dec. 27, 1745, 
and he married 2d, Mrs. Elizabeth Cotton, widow of Thomas.

FOURTH GENERATION 23 

III. Dorothy,* b. in Salem, 1751 ; d. unmarried. 

There seems to be something of a romance connected with this 
Dorotliy. In the town records of Salem, under " Intentions of 
Marriage," appears the following, under date of March 16, 1771 : 

" Samuel Chipman and Dorothy Churchill, both of Salem, intend 
marriage." 

This marriage did not take place, and thirty years later Samue 
Chipman, still a bachelor, married, January, 1803, Elizabeth Obear, 
of Beverly, who died in 1807, and he married, as second wife, Feb. 
7, 1809, Elizabeth Fowler, of Beverly, who died Aug. 29, 1852, leav- 
ing two children. This last from records at Essex Institute. 

From the " Salem Gazette," at the Institute, is taken the following 
item : 

" Whereas, there has been some disputes between Joseph Chip- 
man and Dorothy Churchill, both of Salem, as to a marriage con- 
tract, made between them. And those disputes being amicably 
settled. Therefore, that the said Dorothy may not be in the least 
injured by any suspicions, mistakes, or rumors concerning the said 
disputes and settlement, I, the said Joseph Chipman do now sin- 
cerely and voluntarily declare that neither tiiose disputes, nor the 
said settlement, nor any of my conduct in this matter, have been 
owing to any objections which I have or had to her moral character, 
and that I think that there hath not been any just foundation for any 
such objections by any one." 

Dated Sept. 11, 1771, Signed, Joseph Chipman.

ICHABOD^ CHURCHILL (Thomas/ Baknabas,^ Joseph,^ 
JoHjf^). Born at Newmarket Plains, N.H., June 24,1764. He 
lived at Parsonsfield, Me., a farmer and shoemaker. " The Oxford 
County Record," published at Kezar Falls, Me., in the issue of Dec. 
26, 1885, has a sketch of •' Father Churchill," from which account 
it appears that he settled at Parsonsfield as early as 1798, and 
cleared and cultivated the farm, which his grandson Nathaniel 
Churchill owned and occupied in 1885. He is described as a push- 
ing, prosperous man, kind and benevolent, but withal somewhat 
eccentric. He was quite notable for his peculiar religious ideas and 
practices. He believed that he was under the special guidance of 
the Holy Spirit and, it is said, obeyed every impulse promptly, with- 
out consulting his reason. The sketch contains several amusing 
anecdotes illustrative of his peculiar traits. He died Sept. 15, 
1855. First wife died Nov. 23, 1809. Second wife died Sept. 3, 
1858. Married 1st, Elizabeth Doe, born 1769, and 2d, Leah

an annuity bond of 1835 from his son William, he is described as

1 785, when he removed with his family to Chittenden, Vt. He was 
called " Isaac, the Good," to distinguish him from another of the 
same name. I find no reference to Kevolutionary service in the 
quite full information received from his descendants, while the pub- 
lished rolls, having several Isaac Churchills, do not sufficiently 
identify him to justify a claim of such service. He died in Chit- 
tenden, Feb. 25, 1826. Married, Aug. 1, 1765, Mklatiah Brad- 
ford, of Plympton, daughter of Joshua and Hannah (Bradford)

82 THE CHUECHILL FAMILY 

still clear and bright of mind and memory. Several letters from 
her are before me. In one she says that her father served in the 
wsiT four years, and while the records do not substantiate the state- 
ment, it is probable that she had good foundation for it. She says 
in the same letter that her parents " were married in Mass. before 
the Dark Day," and their children were born in Middleboro', Mass. 
Her father was paid off for his services in the war in " bad money." 
He removed, in 1801, to Hartford, Me., bringing his father and mother 
along with him. He died Dec. 20, 1840. Married, before May 19, 
1780, Louisa Lucas.

JOSEPH 5 CHURCHILL (Benjamin/ Benjamin/' William/ 
John ^). Born in Middleboro'. He served in the war of the Revo- 
lution, three brief terms of enlistment in the year 1779, viz., March 
14, for thirty days, under Captain Wilmarth at Howland's Eerry ; 
from May 20 to July 1, at Tiverton, R.I., and from Aug. 13 to 
Sept. 13, 1779. It is supposed that after the war he settled in 
Rhode Island at either Gloucester or Scituate. In 1792 he had a 
deed of land from Jabez Williams, of Gloucester, and was himself of 
Gloucester. One of his grandsons, writing of him in 1900, says he 
was a poor man and did not keep his family together. So it seems 
that they scattered early, and settled later, in different localities. 
Three of the sons removed to Pennsylvania, as will be seen, while 
the daughters, it is said, married and lived in central Massachusetts. 

He married in Rhode Island ( ) Williams, a descendant of 

Roger.

ASAHEL « CHURCHILL (Samuel/ Samuel/ John/ Joseph/

6, 1769. After marriage removed to New York State and settled on 
the Susquehanna River, about nine miles above Oswego, now Apa- 
lachin. The family removed from that place about 1809, came 
down the river into Pennsylvania, across the country to the Ohio 
River, and then down that stream to Cincinnati, at that time a 
small village. The party consisted of Asahel's family, including 
his daughter Sarah and her husband, Mary, Daniel, Olive, and 
Samuel. From Cincinnati they went into Indiana and settled at 
Brookville in Franklin County, then scarcely more than a wilder- 
ness. The Indians were not friendly, and the families, for security, 
gathered into block-houses at night. About two years after the 
settlement there, Asahel, the father, died, leaving the family in 
destitute circumstances. The mother lived to be 95 years old, and 
died in 1864. Married, Feb. 4, 1785, Polly Hart, who was born

GEN. SYLVESTER « CHURCHILL ( Jo.seph,^ Joseph/ Bar- 
nabas," Joseph,- John '). Born at Woodstock, Vt., Aug. 2, 1783. 
He was reared in that town and received his education in the public 
schools there. He early showed somewhat of the fibre and calibre 
of his mind and ambition. He found time and means of training 
for leadership of men. At the age of twenty-five we find him pub- 
lishing a weekly newspaper at Windsor, Vt., called the "Vermont 
Republican," which he continued until 1812, during which time 
he was largely instrumental in changing the politics of his 
State from Federal to Democratic. He was active in military 
affairs, and upon the outbreak of the War of 1812 he was appointed 
captain of infantry, but declined, and, having recruited a company 
of light artillery, received a commission as first lieutenant of artil- 
lery in the army. Under General Dearborn, and later, he rendered 
distinguished service with this company, which under his drill became 
very efficient. It was his company which constructed the battery 
at Burlington, Vt., under whose protecting guns Commodore 
McDonough's storm-crippled and weakened fleet took shelter from 
the furious attacks of the British, till the necessary repairs were 
made. He was promoted to captain and served in the Chateaugay 
campaign under General Wade Hampton, and soon after was ap- 
pointed inspector general with rank of major, Avhich position he 
held till the close of the war, serving on the staffs of General Wil- 
kinson, General Izard, and General McComb, successively. He still 
retained his office as inspector-general, and was stationed at differ- 
ent points on the Northern frontier and Atlantic coast. He was 
called to active service in the Creek Indian war of 1836, where he 
won distinguished honor by his administration, and was promoted 
to a colonelcy, to succeed General Wool, promoted in 1841. In 
1845, by President Polk's clumsy attempt to reduce the army roster, 
Colonel Churchill was retired with honor, but upon the reassembling 



SIXTH, GENERATION^ 99 

of Congress lie was at once restored to his rank and position. In 
1846, by General Wool's special request, Colonel Churchill went 
with him to Mexico, and, as most of the forces were raw recruits, 
his work of directing the training and drilling, and rigidly holding 
officers and men up to a proper military standard of efficiency, was 
very arduous, and at first made him unpopular, but soon afterwards 
resulted in his becoming one of the most honored and beloved officers 
in the army. At the battle of Buena Vista his heroism and wise post- 
ing of troops in the temporary absence of the general officers un- 
doubtedly saved the whole army from disaster, and resulted in a 
victory. His horse was shot under him, but he escaped without 
wounds. For his gallant services in this battle he was promoted 
to brigadier-general by brevet. After the Mexican war he retained 
his position, being engaged for many months mustering out the 
returning troops. Then up to 1856 he was engaged in the duty of 
inspecting the army posts, travelling at least 10,000 miles a year to 
all the frontier outposts. In 1856 a long-continued and confirmed 
lameness demanded his release from his arduous duties, and he was 
retired with high honor from his post. He died in Washington, 
D.C., Dec. 7, 1862, in his 80th year. General Churchill married, at 
Windsor, Vt., Aug. 30, 1812, Lucy Hunter, daughter of William 
and Mary (Newell) Hunter, born at Windsor, Vt., July 17, 1786, 
and died at Carlisle, Pa., Sept. 6, 1862.

JAMES CREIGHTON« CHURCHILL (Thomas,^ Thomas/ 
Barnabas/ Joseph,- John '). Born in Newmarket, N.H., April 
24, 1787. Died in Portland, Me., Nov. 20, 1865. His early life was 
passed in his native town where he received the usual common- 
school edncation of that day. He evidently had experience also on 
ship-board, as he was in command of a vessel in his early manhood. 
He learned the trade of ship-carpenter and later engaged in ship- 
building at Portland, Me. In the War of 1812 he served as a ser- 
geant, in the 34th U.S. Infantry, Capt. David Sherman's Company. 
Was later appointed quartermaster, serving two enlistments con- 
secutively, from May 13, 1814, to June 15, 1815, when he was 
honorably discharged at Portland, Me. After engaging in ship-build- 
ing for a few years he became interested in the trade with the West 
Indies, then just beginning to attract the attention of ISTorthern mer- 
chants. After a few voyages of investigation he combined with several 
associates and bought some sugar plantations near Cardenas, Cuba, 
which was soon made a port of entry, and established there the 
beginning of the large and prosperous business which later made 
Portland one of the most important seaports on the coast. He was 
thus a pioneer and leading spirit among the notable old-time Port- 
land merchants. He was public-spirited and influential in many 
directions. In 1828 he was elected one of the presidential electors, in 
the bitter contest waged between the parties, and he was known 
long after as " the star of the East," because of his solitary persis- 
tent vote for Andrew Jackson. In the political upheaval of 1834 
he was Whig candidate for Congress, but the party was in the 
minority and he failed of election. In 1844 he was elected mayor 
of Portland, and is remembered as one of the ablest and most popu- 
lar of the city's old-time rvilers. He was a natural organizer of 
commercial enterprises, and in the agitation of the plan to connect 
Portland and Montreal by a railroad he was chief actor, and be- 
came treasurer of the old " Portland Company," organized for the 
manufacture of locomotives, cars, and railroad machinery, furnish- 
ing much of the rolling stock and running material of the old " At- 
lantic and St. Lawrence Railroad," now a part of the " Grand 



no THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 

Trunk " system. He held the position of treasurer of the railroad 
till a short time before his death. He was also chiefly instrumental 
in organizing the " Casco Iron Works/' of which he was treasurer, 
while for many years he conducted an extensive insurance business, 
and to his last days attended promptly and faithfully to all his 
official duties. He was a prominent Mason, a member of <' Ancient 
Landmark Lodge No. 17, of Free and Accepted Masons." Was a 
Past Grand High Priest of the Grand Chapter of Maine. He is 
remembered in all his public relations and in his personal life as 
one of Portland's most useful and honored citizens. His funeral 
service was held in the Pearl Street Universalist Church, of which 
society he was an honored member, and was attended by a great 
concourse of his fellow-citizens. Masonic brethren, and members of 
city. State, and national governments. Three of his personal friends, 
and prominent clergymen, officiated at the service : Revs. Dr. Bolles, 
George W. Quimby, and I. M. Atwood. He married, in Portsmouth, 
at her father's house, Jan. 8, 1809, Eliza Walker Osborne, 
daughter of Rev. John Osborne, a P>aptist minister, who officiated 
at the marriage ceremony. They lived for some time after mar- 
riage at Lee, and New Market, N.H., where their eldest child was 
born, and, after 1815. at Portland, Me.

DEACON WINSLOW« CHURCHILL (Isaac,^ Ebenezer," 
William,^ William,^ John '). Born in Plympton, Mass., Dec. 
30, 1770, and removed with his father to Chittenden, Vt., in 1785. 
He became a farmer and also exercised the mason's vocation. In 
1804 he removed with his young fajnily to Camillus, Onondaga 
County, N.Y., where he piirchased a farm, which he cultivated for 
thirty years. The Erie canal was afterwards cut through his 
farm, and he built and " ran " a boat called " The Growler " on 
the canal. As a member of the New York militia he was called 
into service for a time in the War of 1812. May 6, 1834, he re- 
moved West with his family, going by the canal as far as Buffalo, 
thence by sail-boat on the lake to Chicago, where he arrived June 
4, 1834, and bought an ox-team, and started out to locate a new 
home. With him on his journey were his children, viz., Lurana, 
Seth, Betsey, Winslow, Jr., Amanda, Isaac, Bradford, and Hiram. 
William and Christiana joined him some four years later. 
After a somewhat prolonged search for a location, he finally chose 
a claim in the north-east corner of Milton township (as it was then 
called), Du Page County, 111. The log-house which he built at the 
time of his settlement is (1900) still standing. He cultivated 
and improved this farm during the remainder of his active life. 
He became a member of the Presbyterian church in early life, and 
in that communion was deacon and chorister for many years. 
Upon his settlement in the West he joined the Congregational 
church, and when the Methodists came and established religious 
services in a school-house in the town Deacon Churchill often 



154 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 

officiated, in the absence of the regular minister, his son, Isaac B., 
reading a sermon selected from some authorized book. In politics 
Mr. Churchill was an ardent Whig, though never seeking office. 
He was public- spirited and patriotic, diligent and earnest in what- 
ever he undertook. He won the respect and confidence of all, and 
holds an honored place among the pioneers of Du Page County. 
He died Sept. 18, 1847. "Milton Township" became Babcock 
Grove, and, the name was later changed to Danby, then Prospect 
Park, and later, still to Glen Ellyn, the present name. Married, 
Thanksgiving Day, November, 1796, Mercy Dodge, who was the 
daughter of William and Mercy, of Rutland, Vt., and was born 
June 15, 1774, and died Feb. 21, 1863.

* These names deserve more than the above brief record. They were still 
living in the town of Glen Ellyn, Feb. 15, 1893, at the age of 91 years, a-id 
said to be then " the oldest twins in the world." Born in Chittenden, Vt., 
as above noted, they spent their girlhood and young womanhood in Camillus, 
N.Y. A Chicago paper of February, 1893, commenting upon the celebration 
of their ninety-first birthday at Glen Ellyn, on the 15th of the month, mentions 
several interesting jjoints. There has never been more than a mere family re- 
semblance between them, their tastes have never been similar, they have never 
dressed alike. They were born in a log-house, common to pioneers of the then 
wild country, and have preserved some rare bits of household ware and kitchen 
furnishings of those early days. The correspondent of 1893 says: "They are 
now two quaint little old women, slight and frail, with placid, kindly faces and 
snow-white hair drawn smoothly down under black lace caps." Mrs. Ackerman 
dresses in black, Mrs. Christian in gray, but the soft old-fashioned silk kerchit f , 
folded around the neck and crossing upon the breast, is worn by both. Tiiey 
delight to tell over the reminiscences of their early days and the labors and en- 
joyments of those primitive times. Their younger brother, Isaac Bradford 
Churchill, lives near them at Glen Ellyn, and in September, 1891, celebrated, 
with his wife, his own golden wedding.

ASAPH" CHURCHILL (Zebedee,^ Perez,^ Bexjamin,' 
William,- John^). Born in Micldleboro', May 5, 1765. His father 
died when he was about two years old, and his mother soon married 
again. ISTothing is known of his childhood, until in his early youth 
he told of working in an iron-foundry, at six and one-quarter cents 
a day, and living on corn-bread and milk and fish, the latter then 
very plentiful. The facts of those early years are not known, but 
it is certain that he had an ambition to break away from his narrow 
surroundings, and conceived the idea that the way out was by means 
of an education. Prom some one he learned about Harvard College, 
and that to be admitted there one must have at least the rudiments 
of Greek and Latin. From some source he secured the books and 
the instruction, and one day, in the summer of 1785, he took his 
little bundle of earthly belongings, including his only pair of 
shoes, and started out into the world alone to "try his fortune." 
He walked from Middleboro' to Cambridge, barefoot, to save the 
wear of the shoes. He presented himself, was examined and 
admitted, and was graduated, well up in his class, in 1789. By 
teaching, and, it is said, preaching, as was the custom of graduates 
of that day, he gained the means of pursuing the study of the lavv\ 
He studied for a time with the Hon. John Davis, and was admitted 
to the Plymouth County bar, Aug. 13, 1793, at the age of 28 years. 
He soon after settled in Boston, and about 1805 began practice in 
Milton, where he continued until his death. He was one of the 
ablest lawyers in Norfolk County. Mr. Churchill was a very 
industrious student, a diligent reader of the French classics, reading 
and speaking the language with fluency. He had almost a passion 
for the acquisition of land, and became an extensive owner in Milton 
and vicinity. He served a brief enlistment in the War of 1812. 
He represented the town of Milton in the General Court for the 
years 1810 and 1812. Mr. Churchill was a man of public spirit and 
enterprise, but of independent disposition and strong individuality. 
He took great pains in the training of his children, seeking to shield 
them from the hardships which he had endured. He sought to 
leave them a competency, as well as an education fitting them for

ASAPH « CHURCHILL (Perez,^ Perez,^ Benjamin,"' William,- 
JoHx ^). Born in Middleboro', March 7, 1789, and lived there until 
his death in ISGl. Mr. Churchill learned and followed the dyers' 
trade for some years, but settled down to farming later. Married, at 
Middleboro', Jan. 6, 1819, Ehoda Johnson Atwood, daughter of 
John and Rlioda Atwood, born in Bridgewater, Aug. 30, 1798. 
When she was four years old her parents removed to Middleboro', 
and she always lived there afterwards. On the occasion of her one 
hundred and first birthday, sketches appeared in Massachusetts 
papers, telling something of her life. She lived in her later years 
with her daughter, Mrs. J. H. Waterman, on Spring street, Middle- 
boro'. Aug. 30, 1899, she was still bright and active, retaining her 
faculties remarkably, especially her memory. She was very fond 
of recalling the incidents of her girlhood, remembering distinctly 
the marching of the soldiers in the W^ar of 1812, as they marched 
through Middleboro' to Plymouth for the protection of that port. 
Neither of her parents lived to old age, her mother dying of con- 
sumption at the age of thirty-nine years, and her father at sixty- 
three years. She has lived a simple, hard-working, cheerful, and 
healthy life. She died Sept. 7, 1902, aged 104 years and 8 days, 
retaining her mental faculties to the end.

natives and made slaves, but escaped to a passing vessel and so got 
home. On another voyage he was captured by pirates, and on their 
capture of a prize they paid him five hundred dollars, and he soon 
after made his escape while the ship was in a West Indian port 
taking fuel and water. He lived on his farm in Wayne later. He 
was a large and powerful man, active in hunting and fishing. He 
was drowned in Wayne Pond, Dec. 3, 18.32, while skating across in 
pursuit of some wild ducks which had lighted in an open place. He 
skated into a hole, while his three eldest children stood on the shore 
watching, but unable to help. They ran to call a neighbor, but their 
father crawled out and came nearly to the shore Avhen the ice again 
gave way, and he was so exhausted and chilled that he sank down 
before help could reach him. Married in Wayne (intentions pub-

1812. Worked on tlie farm and attended the district school until 
eighteen years of age, when he went to Montpelier, and attended the 
academy, and taught school until, at the age of twenty-three, he en- 
tered upon the study of the law in the office of Lucius B. Peek, 
afterward U.S. Senator from Vermont. Young Churchill was ad- 
mitted to the bar at twenty-six and two years later was elected 
Clerk of Courts in Montpelier, which office he held for six years. 
He resigned the office and purchased the home-farm and lived there 
until 1850, when he moved to Stowe village and built a hotel for 
summer tourists, and was largely instrumental in building a road to 
the top of Mount Mansfield, where he placed a tent for public use of 
travellers, and was the first to advertise Stowe as a summer resort. 
Like many pioneers of such enterprises he did not receive the coop- 
eration needed to assure prosperity, and later on others profited by 
his sacrifices and efforts. He removed to Montpelier in 1857, and 
to the West in 1862, and settled first in Woodford County, 111., and 
later in Bloomington, 111. He was engaged in Eire and Life Insur- 
ance, until 1875, when he removed his office to Chicago and there

notable books of the year. " The Crisis," Mr. ChurchiU's latest 
novel, has added greatly to his high standing among American 
authors.

XATHANIEL WILEY" CHUPvCHILL (Col. John T./ 
Joseph/ Thomas/ Barnabas/ Joseph,- John^). Born at Brook- 
field, X.H., Oct. 12, 1827. Died in Dorchester, Mass., May 8, 1903. 
Mr. Churchill was a chief compiler of " Churchills in America," and 
will receive a more complete notice in the introductory section of 
this volume. His childhood and boyhood were spent in his native 
tovv-n, where he attended the public schools, and passed through the 
common experiences of boys on Xew England farms. A term at 
South Berwick Academy, Maine, and another at Wakefield Acad- 
emy, New Hampshire, completed his education. He taught a 
winter term in a district school, and then entered business life as a 
clerk in a dry-goods store in Dover, N.H. Later he succeeded to 
the business as principal. He later engaged in the same business 
at Lawrence, Mass., and Concord, N.H., for about eight years, when 
he sold out, and removed to Boston, forming a partnership, which, 
after a time, proved so unsatisfactory that he withdrew and en- 
tered upon a career as a travelling salesman, in which business he 
achieved great success. He entered the employment, largely, of 
New York firms, and his territory covered nearly the whole of the 
northern part of the United States, including also Delaware, Mary- 
land, Virginia, Kentucky, Missouri, and the District of Columbia. 
After many years of this constant travelling, he settled down to 
business in Boston, in the line of manufacturing knit shawls and 
worsted goods, for some eighteen years, and up to his retirement in 
May, 1902, he continued in this business. I have been carefully 



230 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 

through his note-books and correspondence, and while I find little 
previous to 1883 and 1884, I judge that his tastes had always in- 
clined him to genealogical investigation. In his travels I find his 
note-books, from ISSl on, filled at one end with his business orders, 
and at the other with his genealogical notes. In nearly all the 
cities and towns he visited he evidently copied the names and ad- 
dresses of Churchills in the directories, or obtained the names from 
the post-ofiices, and then, if possible, called upon such as he found 
to represent different families. Indeed, he has told me of this 
method of collecting material. In this way he collected a vast 
amount of data and became personally acquainted with a great 
number of the Churchill kindred, and his luemory of them and 
their conditions and characteristics was marvellous. It is a matter 
of regret that he did not put any of this valuable information into 
written form. He was eager to get the facts of birtlis, marriat/es, 
and deaths, which he deemed the most important part, and often 
spoke to me of going over the names in review, ^' sometime," w^hen 
he could give me, from his memory, a biography, or some facts 
about each one. The " sometime " never came. We were so busy 
getting the vital facts that we never found time to make any 
attempt to formulate any of these sketches. It was only by earnest 
and continued urging that I was able, sometime after his retire- 
ment, to secure from him a brief statement of his own business 
career, just the bare facts. Mr. Churchill was of fine presence and 
genial manners, warmly attached to his home and family, and 
devoted in his friendships. Of his association with Mr. Gardner A. 
Churchill, of Dorchester, and their co-operation in this work until 
the death of the latter, the story will be given elsewhere, as well as 
my own connection with him, as editor and assistant compiler. 
For many years much of his energy, time, and interest have been 
devoted to the gathering and recording of material for this volume, 
and his loss has been a great calamity to its completion. From 
scores of the kindred scattered over the country who have known 
him, either by personal interview or correspondence, we have 
received letters of regret and tribute. Mr. Churchill was a member 
of the Massachusetts Society of Colonial Wars, in the eighth gener- 
ation from Capt. John Gilman, and also in the sixth degree from 
Isaac Allerton. He married, March 10, 1852, Martha J. Wiggtn, 
of Dover, N.H., daughter of Capt. Benjamin and Mar}^ (Dow) 
Wiggin. Mrs. Martha J. Churchill died Jan. 28, 1895.

PROF. JOHN WESLEY' CHURCHILL (John E.," Francis,^ 
Jonathan,'* Eliezer,'^ Eliezer,- John '). Born in Fairlee, Yt., 
May 26, 1839. He removed in boyhood to Nashua, IST.H., where he 
received his early schooling, which was closed with a course at 
Appleton Academy. He planned to follow the profession of civil en- 
gineer, and obtained an engagement as a mechanical draughtsman on 
the bridge across the Mississippi river at Davenport, Iowa. Friends 
in Davenport discovered that he was destined for a different career, 
and he soon returned East and took a preparatory course at Phillips 
Andover Academy, and then took a four years' course at Harvard 
College where he graduated in 1865. He then returned to Andover 
for a final course at the Theological Seminary, where he graduated 
in 1867. He immediately received the appointment of Jones Pro- 
fessor of Pulpit Oratory, in Andover, Avhich position he held until 
his death. In 1896 he was appointed Bartlett Professor of 
Homiletics, and proved a worthy successor to illustrious prede- 
cessors. The special work of Professor Churchill at the seminary 
was to teach the young men who were preparing for the ministry 
to preach to the people so that the people would be glad to listen to 
them. In this he was peculiarly successful. But he grew to be 
more than the teacher of elocution. He became the wise counsellor, 
the sympathetic friend, the inspirer of new hopes in cases of dis- 



246 THE CHUKCHILL rA:\IILY 

couragement and doubt. Hundreds of graduates, scattered over the 
whole country, attest his wonderful influence as teacher, adviser, and 
friend. He became a preacher of high ability and power, as well 
as a writer of note, in the line of religious thought and culture. 
Many other institutions besides Andover enjoyed his instruction, at 
different times ; among these, Dartmouth, Amherst, Brown Univer- 
sity and Wellesley, Smith and Mt. Holyoke ; while, since 1890, he 
had been instructor of elocution in Harvard Divinity School. He 
was best known to the great public by his marvellous power as a 
public reader. In this field, in the great lecture courses, some 
twenty -five years ago, Professor Churchill's evening was the popular 
feature of the course. In his power of expression, and range of 
voice and tone, his taste and adaptation, he stands unrivalled. He 
was a public-spirited and popular citizen in his own town. Pro- 
fessor Churchill died at Andover, Mass., April 13, 1900. His 
funeral services at Andover were attended by a great congregation 
of his towns-people and his friends from far and near, and a notable 
procession of professors and students and distinguished educators 
of many different institutions of New England followed him to his 
grave. The clergymen ofiiciating were Dr. Donald, his brother-in- 
law. Dr. McKenzie, Cambridge, and Dr. Bancroft. He married, at 
Andover, July 27, 1859, Mart J axe Donald, daughter of Will- 
iam C. Donald, who survived him.

ZACCHEUS H." CHURCHILL (Caleb," Johx,^ Ebexezer," 
William,'' William,- Johx '). Born in Chittenden, Vt., March 29, 
1799. Of Zaccheus and his family we have been able to learn vexy 
little. Mrs. Johnson, of Holden, has tried to get the record, but np 
to the time of this account going to press we have received very 
little. He married Hannah N. Bacon, Dec. 4, 1827, and removed 
to Pennsylvania. Mrs. Johnson has a letter received from her 
brother, Edwin R., years ago, in which he says that "when I visited 
Uncle Zaccheus Chnrchill, in 1866, he was living some twenty-five 
miles south of Erie, Penn., and had five children." There were two 
sons and two daughters, and one other, he did not remember 
whether a son or daughter. He remembered the names of two of 
the children, the oldest son, Simeon, who was married and had eight 
children. The youngest son was Azem. All the children were 
married.

N.Y., April 22, 1818, and was brought up on his father's farm. He 
attended the coinmon schools of his native town, and at the age of 
sixteen removed with his father to the West, and settled in what 
was then Milton Township, now Glen Ellyn, 111., and there, when 
he was of age, he entered upon a claim next to his father's, which 
he now lives upon, and which at the present time is a well-improved 
farm of two hundred and thirty acres. He is a man of well-earned 
prosperity and influence, and has been interested and very helpful 
in the compiling of this volume. Married, Sept. 15, 1841, Angelina 
Barker, daughter of Zelotus and jMargaret (Mason) Barker. 

Children horn at Glen Ellyn. 

1072 I. Amos,8 b. March 29, 1842; m., Nov. 26, 1866, Marilla Bronson, 

dau. of David and Rhoda (Page) Bronson, of Naperville, 111., 
where she was born, March 10, 1846. 

Amos Churchill spent his early years on the farm, and received a 
conmion school education and prepared for college. He enlisted in 
Company D, Eighth Illinois Cavalry, Sept. 1, 1861, and was sent 
forward to Washington soon after. His regiment joined the army of 
the Potomac under General C. McLellan, arriving at Hampton in 
time to witness the battle between the " Monitor" and " Merrimac." 
Mr. Churchill was engaged in all the battles of the Army of the Poto- 
mac, from March 1, 1862, to June, 1863. He served as orderly to 
General Sumner up to the battle of Chancellorsville. He was engaged 
in the great battles of South Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville. 



278 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 



On June 1, 1863, he was severely wounded in the arm in a desper- 
ate skirmish with the enemy, near Beverly's Ford, and his horse 
was shot, but lived long enough to bear him to the hospital at 
Brandy Station. Mr. Churchill's wound was so severe that he was 
discharged, and arrived home Oct. 1, 1863. He resumed his studies 
and entered Wheaton College, until the spring of 1864, when the 
President called for recruits for one hundred days, and he enlisted 
in Company H, One Hundred and Forty-first Regiment, Illinois 
Volunteers, and was elected lieutenant of the company. His 
command was used mainly for garrison duty to relieve veteran 
troops, at Columbus, Cairo, and Paducah, Ky. On Oct. 10, 1864, 
Lieutenant Churchill, with his company, was mustered out at 
Chicago, and immediately resumed his studies until the spring 
of 1865, when upon the call of the President, he raised a company, 
and took them to camp, where they were mustered in, but on account 
of his wounded arm the surgeons would not pass him at tlie muster, 
and he returned again to his studies. He served in many offices of 
trust in his native town, on the board of education and in other re- 
lations. He engaged in farming and dealing in grain, etc., and in 
1883 formed a partnership with W. H. Luther, in the coal and 
grain and agricultural tools business, which business in 1890 
was dissolved, and continued by Mr. Churchill under the firm name 
of Churchill & Newton. Mr. Churchill has been always a self- 
reliant worker, a public spirited and influential citizen. He is a 
past commander of Post No. 513, G.A.R., and deacon of the Con- 
gregational Church.

Mr. Churcliill was educated in the public schools of Dorchester. 
In his youth he went on several voyages as a sailor, part of the 
time in a ship engaged in the East Indian trade. He gained ex- 
perience and studied navigation, so that he was fitted to fill a posi- 
tion of trust ; and when, during the Civil War, he enlisted in the 
navy, he was appointed, Dec. 15, 1862, acting ensign. After a 
period of training in gunnery on board the ship " Macedonian" he 
was assigned to duty on board the United States ship " Release," and 
served as sailing-master of that vessel, and afterwards, in the same 
capacity, on the United States steamers "Memphis" and "Shaw- 
mut," and (with an interval of a few months' furlough on account of 
sickness) he served until the surrender of General Lee, when, in 
1865, he resigned. 

He was a gallant officer, and on one occasion, by his coolness and 
prompt action, saved the " Memphis" from destruction by a rebel 
torpedo ram, in the North Edisto river, March 6, 1864. 

After the war Mr. Churchill engaged in the business of printing 
with the firm of Rockwell & Rollins, and on the death of Mr. 
Rollins, in 1869, he became the junior partner of the firm of Rock- 
well & Churchill, in which progressive and prosperous house he 
remained till his death. He had excellent taste in all matters per- 
taining to the business, was of quick perception and good judgment 
in all matters in which he took an interest. 

He served with credit for two terms, 1875-1876, as representative 
to the Legislature from Dorchester, and was a trustee of the In- 
sane Asylum at Danvers three years He was a member of the 
Masonic fraternity, of the Grand Army of the Republic, and of 
several patriotic societies, among others the Society of Colonial 
Wars, and the Sons of the American Revolution. He was 
interested in history and genealogy, was an active member of 
the New England Historical and Genealogical Society. He had 
for many years been interested in gathering material for a gene- 
alogy of the Churchill family, and in company with Mr. N. W. 
Churchill I'.ad, at the time of his death, nearly completed an ac- 
count of the Plymouth branch of the family, to which his own line 



298 THE CHUKCHILL FAMILY 



belonged, to the seventh generation, and it was in pursuance of his 
intention that his family decided to publish the volume which has 
grown to include the three great branches, and eight or nine, 
instead of six, generations of one branch. In 1887 Mr. Churchill 
compiled and published a genealogy of his own line in a neat 
pamphlet of eighteen pages, for private distribution. After his 
marriage and return from the war Mr. Churchill lived at Wren- 
tham for some years, and then removed to Milton Lower Mills, in 
Dorchester, where he lived till 1884, when he removed to Alban 
street, Ashmont.

usual common-school education. By the diligent pursuit of her pur- 
pose to attain literary ability, she has overcome many obstacles and 
achieved an honorable place among the leading autliors of Maine. 
Besides her brilliant and popular society sketches in various maga- 
zines she has published two volumes, entitled "My Girls" and 
"Interweaving." She is now, 1902, on the editorial staff of the 
" Success" magazine in New York City.

this junior line, in the Plymouth branch. 



THE CONNECTICUT BRANCH 



THE CHURCHILL FAMILY 



DESCENDANTS OF JOSIAH CHURCHILL 
OF WETHERSFIELD 



FIRST GENERATION. 



1. 

JOSIAH 1 CHUECHILL * (or Cliurchell, as he himself spelled the 
name) makes his first appearance in Wethersfield, Conn., on the 
occasion of his marriage. He may have been there some time before 
that event, and probably had been, but we have found no evidence 
of his presence until then. We have found no evidence of his par- 
entage, birthplace, or previous condition. There is no evidence that 
he was related to either John of Plymouth, who was near his own 
age, nor to William, the ancestor of the New York branch of the 
family. Some hints or suggestions of a possible solution of the 
question of his nativity will find mention in the prefatory part of 
this volume, but since they are purely speculative, we do not place 
them here. 

The first entry relating to his real estate in Wethersfield is the 
following record : 

The 2d month & 28th rlaie 1641 the lands of Josias Churchell lying in Wethers- 
field on Connecticutt river. 

One pece whereon his howse standetli con : six arr^ more or less. The ands 
(the enils) abutt against the hie wale west & great Mea : east. The sids against 
the waie into the great mea : South & the house of John Jessiope ( Jessup) North. 
(Town Records, B. 1, p. 204.) 

This homestead was on the east side of High street, on the north 
corner of an ancient road leading to the " Great Meadow," and the 
river. It faced the southern extremity of the Common, which 
stretched north from his house to the river. But he did not reside 
here all his life, for, under the date December, 1659, we find this 
entry in the records : 

The Horn lot of Josias Churchell which he bought of Mr. Tantor (Taintor) 
which was (lildersleeves formerly living in Weathersfield, on Connecticot River. 
(Town Records, B. 1, p. 205.) 

This homestead of Richard Gildersleeve was on the west side of 
High street, a few doors south of Mr. Churchill's earlier home. 

* The old records have the name Churchell for the first three generations, 
but we have adopted the later, general form, in this and in other names. 



324 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

It is difficult to glean biographical material from the meagre and 
matter-of-fact records of our forefathers. In Hinman's genealogical 
account of the early Connecticut settlers, he says of Josiah Churchill, 
" He was a gentleman of more than a medium estate for the time in 
which he lived, and of reputation in the Colony." He was active 
and useful in public affairs, though not holding the highest positions. 
He was a juror of the Particular Court iu 1643, 1649, and 1651, 
at the Quarter Court, 1664 and 1665, and at the County Court, 
1666, 1670, and 1675. He was chosen a constable in 1657 and 
1670, and was elected one of the two town surveyors in 1666 and 
1673. 

He executed his will on the 17th of November, 1683, and died 
before January, 1687. The inventory of his estate was taken Jan. 5, 
1687, by James Treat and John Buttolph, selectmen of Wethers- 
field, and was found to amount to 618 pounds 12 shillings and 
6 pence. This inventory shows that at his death he owned two 
home lots and two hundred and ten acres of land. He left his son 
Joseph " that house and home lott he now lives on," together with 
" all other buildings thereon." He left to Joseph also several other 
pieces of land, and a fifty-acre lot, " at y*" west end of Weathersfield 
bounds," in the newly settled tract which later became the parish of 
Newingtou. He left to his son Benjamin a number of pieces 
of land, and the old homestead, at the decease of his mother. 
According to the custom of the times his daughters were given cer- 
tain shares of " moveable estate." Among the items in the invent- 
ory are " a great chist," and " 2 bibells and other books." This 
" great chist " probably reappears in the inventory of his son Joseph, 
which specifies a chest with the initials " J. C," as well as a piece 
of " turkie work." 

Mention is made of his children Joseph, Benjamin, Mary Church, 
Elizabeth Buck, Anne Rice, and Sarah Wickham. 

JosiAH Churchill, above mentioned, married Elizabeth 
FooTF,, daughter of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Deming) Foote, who 
died at Wethersfield, Sept. 8, 1700, aged about eighty-four years.

of eighty-six years. He w as granted lands in Wethersfield in 1658,

influence and ability, filling the town oflices, and being elected a

SECOND GENERATION.

JOSEPH 2 CHURCHILL (Josiah^). Born in Wethersfield, 
Conn., Dec. 7, 1649. He was one of the beneficiaries named in the 
"will of his maternal grandmother, Elizabeth (Deming) (Foote), 
widow of Governor Thomas Welles. In an indenture dated Nov. 
30, 1668, he is styled " husbandman." He lived in Wethersfield, 
on land inherited from his father ; probably the home lot described 
December, 1659, as belonging to Josiah Churchill, in terms as fol- 
lows : 

On pece a hom lot wheare on a house standeth containing three ac (acres) 
more or less the ends abutt against the streat east and Mr. Wells weast the sids 
against the Hom lot of Sam Welles South and John Hubburd North. 

In the inventory of his estate his home lot is mentioned as con- 
sisting of three acres, which would indicate that he passed his life 
on the homestead bequeathed by his father. That he was a man 
of ability and influence is shown by his gradual advancement to 
places of trust and influence. The Wethersfield Records show that 
at the age of thirty he was choseu one of the town surveyors ; three 
years later he was one of the assessors, and next year, 1684, he was 
made collector of taxes ; in 1689 was chosen constable, assessor 
again in 1695, and at the annual meeting, held Dec. 27, 1697, 
" Sergt." Joseph Churchell was chosen " Selectman," and again re- 
elected in 1698, and was still holding that office when he died, April 
1, 1699, at the age of forty-nine years. The above date of death 
appears in the heading of the inventory. His estate was valued at 
four hundred and sixty-one pounds, and his heirs, according to a 
memorandum at the end of the inventory, were the relict, Mary, 
Nathaniel, Mary Edwards, Elizabeth Butler, Dinah, Samuel, Joseph, 
David, Jonathan, and Hannah. 

Married, at Wethersfield, May 13, 1674, Mary ( ). Long 

and diligent search by many different investigators has not brought 
to light the surname of Joseph Churchill's wife. She survived him 
and lived to advanced age. She is mentioned as " Widow Mary, 
Senior," in the settlement of her son, Nathaniel's, estate, April 2,

LIEUT. BENJAMIN 2 CHURCHILL (Josiah i). Born in 
Wethersfield, May 16, 1652, and lived there. The records of his 
native town show that Mr. Churchill was early recognized as of 
ability and enterprise. At the age of twenty-three he was elected 
a surveyor, and soon after held successively the offices of collector, 
assessor, and constable. At the age of thirty-seven years he was 
chosen selectman, and for years served in that office. He was a 
surveyor of some note beyond his own town and often served on 
committees of survey for other towns by appointment of the Gen- 
eral Assembly. May 8, 1701, he was elected lieutenant of the 
" Trainband," for the north precinct of Wethersfield. He was 
living in April, 1728, but the tax-list of 1730 does not contain his 
name, and the probability is that he died before 1730, though the 
date of his death is not found on the records. Married, July 6,

actively engaged as captain, adjutant, and quartermaster of the 
troops raised for the relief of Hampsiiire County. Again in 1723 
he commanded a company, and was a member of the Colonial War 
Committee. In 1725 he ranked as colonel. He was a justice of

Wethersiield, July 9, 1G77. He lived in Old Wetliersiield until 
about 1719, when he removed with his family to the westermost 
precinct of the town, near Farniington bounds. He was active in 
public matters, in the land interests particularly in that local- 
ity, and his name is found on petitions to the General Court in 1715, 
and as member of a committee of citizens April 7, the same year. 
His will was probated later in 1715. He left a double portion to 
his son Nathaniel, viz., one hundred and thirty pounds, and to his 
younger sons, John, Daniel, and Josiah, sixty-five pounds. The 
inventory of his estate, Feb. 2<S, 1716, showed its value to be three 
hundred and seventy-one pounds. He died some time in the fall of 
1715. The distribution of his estate was made April 2, 1728. 
Married, Oct. 9, 1701, Mary Hurlbut, daughter of Jonathan and

of Capt. Robert Wells and Jonathan Deming. He lived in a house 
on the hillside just south of the present house in which Miss Mary 
Ohuvciiill lives (1903). Like his father and grandfather he was 



330 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

active in public affairs in town and church. His name appears very 
frequently in the records of the Newington society, where he served 
on the Prudential and School Committees, and in other minor 
affairs, like repairs on the meeting-house, school-house, etc. One vote 
of the society, taken June 26, 1721, in anticipation of the settlement 
of the Rev. Elisha Williams, is of interest, viz. : 

Voted and agreed as followeth : 

Samuel Hunn, Jabezeth "Whittlesey, Richard Borman, and Samuel Churchel, 
shall undertake to make twenty thousand bricks for Mr. Elisha Williams, to 
take the care and provide the hands and all things for said work. 

In one of the Wethersfield deeds he is called " Smith," indicating 
Ms trade. In 1746 the General Assembly appointed him ensign of 
the local military company, and he bore the title afterwards, and 
has been designated in the family ever since as " Ensign Samuel." 
He died in Newington Parish, July 21, 1769, and lies buried in the 
churchyard. Married, June 26, 1717, Maktha Boardman, born 
Dec. 19, 1695, daughter of Daniel and Hannah (Wright) Boardman,

SAMUEL* CHURCHILL (Samuel,^ Joseph,^ Josiah '). Born 
in the West Parish of Wethersfield, now Newington, April 27, 1721. 
He settled first in Sheffield, Mass., about 1746, where he married 
next year, and labored industriously at his farm as well as occa- 
sionally at the making of shoes. Here he remained until his family 
had increased to ten children, six sons and four daughters, when he 
removed to Vermont. The story of his subsequent career in the 
new home and his stirring adventures in the border warfare in the 
Revolution has been published many years ago by his grandson, 
Amos Churchill, son of Joseph, in sketches of the history of Hub- 
bardton, Vt. (The sketches were published first in the '•'Vermont 
Historical Gazetteer," Vol. III.) We quote the account from the 
time of the removal from Sheffield. 

My grandfather having a large family, most of them boys, and some mar- 
ried and beginning to have families, he was anxious to provide for them farms if 
possible. And, as land was cheap in the then new State of Vermont, he sold his 



336 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

farm in Sheffield, estimated at three tliousand dollars (83,000), to a man by the 
name of Hickok (who pretended to own a lar^'e quantity of land in the town of 
Hubbardton, Rutland County, Vt ), and took a quitclaim deed of three thou- 
sand (3,000) acres of land lying in Hubbardton aforesaid. He had previously 
been through the town with Hickok and others. The next season he came on 
with his surveyor, and located his three thousand (3,000) acres in a differ- 
ent part of the town, chose his place of residence, cleared a piece of land,- 
built a log house, and moved on in the spring of 1775, and went to clearing up 
his farm. He had been in possession for a little more than two years, and was 
still attending to his business, when a detachment of soldiers arrived on the 
morning of the 7th of July, 1777, warning him of danger, and advising him to 
escape. They were two miles north of Warren's encampment. Upon receiving 
the information they started off as fast as possible, the women and children 
mounted on three horses and the men on foot. They had gone but a little on 
their way when the firing commenced. They all pushed on as fast as possible 
until they were among the bullets, and two of their horses were wounded The 
old lady, when she saw that her horse was wounded, jumped from his back, ex- 
claiming, " I wisii I had a gun, I would give them Avhat they want." They all 
retreated except John and Silas who were in the battle. Silas was taken pris- 
oner, but John made his escape and went back to their house. Here they were 
all surprised, and were taken prisoners by a Tory captain named Sherwood, with 
a party of painted Tories and Indians who had been lurking on the hills east of 
the house during the battle. After plundering the house of all the provisions, 
most of the clothing, and everything else that they could make use of, the bar- 
barous wretch ordered the women and children to leave the house or he would 
burn the whole together ; at any rate the house should be burnt. One of the 
young women taking her bed in her arms proceeded with a heavy heart to the 
door, let it fall, saying, " You have taken all our men prisoners, and all our pro- 
visions, and now how can you be so cruel as to burn our house? " So saying she 
fainted. This, with the tears and entreaties of the others, so softened his savage 
heart that he left them their shelter, but deprived them of their provisions and 
much of their clothing. My grandfather was taken some distance from the 
house into the woods by the Indians and tied to a tree and dry brush piled around 
him, they often saying to him, " Tell us where your flour is, you old rebel.'* 
Sherwood suspected that he had some concealed which they had not yet found. 
After keeping him here for two or three hours, questioning him about his flour, 
threatening and taunting hiiu, and he constantly asserting that he had none, that 
they had taken it all, etc., and while in the act of setting fire to the brush, Sher- 
wood came forward and ordered them to desist, being thoroughly convinced that 
he had none. His cattle and hogs were all killed and all such parts as they could 
use were taken, each one being ordered to take as much as he could carry. 
William was lame, having cut his foot a few days before, and could not travel, 
and they released him. Ezekiel being a small boy, they sent him back. The 
others were marched off to Ticonderoga. The prisoners, inhabitants of Hub- 
bardton, were Samuel Churchill, the father, John and Silas, his sons, Messrs. 
Uriah Hickok, Henry Keeler, and Elijah Kellogg. The women and children 
being left destitute of provisions could not remain there. The British Tories 
and Indians being south, they feared to take a southern direction. One of their 
horses being lame from the wound he had received, could not travel. They, 
with what clothing they had left, started off as well as they could with their two 
horses. The company consisted of four women, two boys (one thirteen years 
old being lame, and the other eleven years old), two small children (one three 
years old, and the other but a few months). Those who could not walk were 
mounted on the two horses with what baggage they liad. Thus equipped, this 
desolate family started off on their dreary and wearisome journey for the place 
of their former residence in Sheffield. But, instead of taking a southern direc- 
tion through Bennington, etc., which they feared to do on account of the ene- 
my, they took an eastern direction through the wilderness, across the Green 
Mountains to the Connecticut river at No. 4, now Charlestown, N.H. ; then 
down the river south to Springfield, then across the mountains again to Sheffield, 
the place of their former residence, a distance as they travelled of more than 
three hundred and fifty (350) miles. Most of the way there were no roads, and 
but few inhabitants. Their progress was slow and distressing, but the old lady, 
being a resolute woman, generaled the expedition with much fortitude and perse-

verance. The first night they stopped at Col. Benjamin Cooley's, in Pittsford. 
He was very kind, and refreshed them with such as his log house afforded. 

The second day they arrived at the fort in Rutland. Here they were fur- 
nished with some provisions. The third night they encamped in the woods on 
the mountain. The fourth night they arrived at Captain Coffin's, in Cavendish. 
Here they stopped two days, and were the recipients of his hospitality. And so 
on, from place to place, until in about three weeks the}^ arrived safely at the 
place of their destination, among their friends in Sheffield. 

The men, prisoners at Ticonderoga, were put to work in the daytime where 
they could be with safety, and at night were confined in cells. My grandfather 
and Mr. Hickok were set to boating wood across the lake. At first, for a while, 
a number of British soldiers would go with them, but they, working faithfully 
and manifesting no discontent, were at length sent off with but one soldier. 
They persuaded him to go with them, and fastening their boat on the eastern 
shore of the lake they all left. My grandfather and Mr. Hickok went to their 
places of residence in Hubbardton. Here they found nothing but desolation 
and putrefaction. On the floor of Mr. Ilickok's house lay the putrid body of a 
dead man. That they buried, and then, proceeding over the battle-ground, they 
could discover nothing but a promiscuous mass of scattered fragments of men, 
clothing, firearms, and direful desolation. Proceeding still further to the place 
of my grandfather's house where he had left his family, and all that he held 
dear on earth, what a heart-rending scene did he behold ! Nothing was to be 
seen but death, desolation, and destruction. Here, where a few weeks before 
was a happy family, and all in health and prosperity, now no living creature 
could be found. The carcasses of his animals were lying here and there in a 
state of putrefaction; his harvest had ripened and was perishing; and nothing 
was left but what was heart-sickening to the sensitive feelings of two escaped, 
hungry, weary, and desponding searchers of consolation. The whole town was 
searched, and not a solitary being was left of whom to inquire. They left this 
dreary, heart-sickening scene, and proceeded to Castleton. Here Mr. Hickok 
found his family, but my grandfather, not finding his, and gaining no intelligence 
of them, wended his weary way, on foot and alone, to the south, one hundred 
and thirty (130) long miles, through dangers that beset him on every side, to the 
place from which he had formerly moved. Here he found, with a grateful 
heart, that they had arrived some days before, safe and all in good health. His 
two sons, John and Silas, remained prisoners until October, when Silas was re- 
taken by Colonel Brown. In the fall, after the capture of Burgoyne, my grand- 
father moved his family back to Castleton, ten miles from his home. He saved 
some of his corn and potatoes, cut and laid up some poor hay for his horses, and 
in the winter moved to his place. Here he remained without interruption until 
the close of the war. When the town began to be infested with land claimants 
almost as destructive as the Tories and Indians, on examining his title, he found 
it worthless, as the man of whom he bought it had no good title to any land in 
the town. He had given his children each a lot of one hundred (100) acres, and 
on ten lots they had made a beginning. These were held by the " quieting act." 
Six more he bought the second time. The rest were given up. He built the 
first frame barn and the second frame house. The boards for the barn were 
drawn twelve and one-half miles on an ox sled, and the nails were picked up 
from the ruins of Fort Ticonderoga after it was burnt. His children, all but one, 
settled in the town, where they all lived until after his death, except Samuel, who 
died before. After settling his children, he retired from business and lived a 
number of years, enjoying a competence, to the advanced age of eighty years.

of Joseph, of Newington.

CAPT. CHAELES* CHURCHILL (SAMufiL,^ Joseph/ 
JosiAH ^). Born iu Newingtou Parish, Dec. 31, 1723, and died 
there Oct. 29, 1802. A detailed sketch of the life of Capt. Charles 
Churchill would-be almost the same as a history of the Newington 
Parish for the last half of the eighteenth century. He was notably 
a leading citizen in the parish, of high patriotic spirit and excel- 
lent abilities. For thirteen years in succession he was a member 
of the Newington Society Committee, and after 1781 he was the 
presiding officer until 1801, the year before his death. To many 
public offices of trust and responsibility was added that of deacon of 
the church, to which he was chosen Aug. 31, 1786. At the session of 
the General Assembly, May, 1762, he was appointed captain of the 
Tenth Company or " trainband," in the Sixth Connecticut Regi- 
ment, which office he tilled for twenty years. 

At the beginning of the Revolutionary War he was on the first 
committee appointed at the town meeting convened June 16, 1774, 
to consider the resolution passed by the Colonial House of Represen- 
tatives, on the second Thursday of May preceding, concerning the 
impending war. 

In all the stirring events following, he was among the fore- 
most of the citizens in his unselfish endeavors and sacrifices for 
the good of his people and country. The records of the town, and 
traditions in the family, show that he was untiring in his efforts to 
raise men for the service and to procure food and clothing for them, 
and for their families while they were in the field. 

It is related that he several times entertained his company at his 
fine old house, and on these occasions the five great baking ovens 
were kept going at once, and that in the largest oven, in the cellar, 
they roasted a whole ox. 

In the " Record of Connecticut Men in the War of the Revolution " 
he is listed as captain of one of the militia companies which turned out

to repel Tryon's invasion of New Haven, July 5, 1779, and lie also 
appears in his office as captain in active service in the Sixth Regi- 
ment, but unfortunately we have no other particulars of his service 
in the field, evidently much of his time in active service. It is 
related that at one time when he was in camp with three of his 
sons, his wife Avrote him of the difficulty she found in carrying on 
the farm without their aid. " But," answered the captain, "I have 
left you Joseph and Benjamin," meaning his youngest sons, Silas 
and Solomon, and showing the spirit of the loyal patriot. 

During the last twenty years of his life, his name appears on the 
records of the Society with the title " Esquire," showing that he 
had taken up the dignity and duties of a justice of the peace, in 
place of his military duties. He collected a library of law books as 
a necessary adjunct to his practice, some of which are still in exist- 
ence. His will, a document of considerable length, is entirely in his 
own hand. His estate was appraised at $3,834.80, by Abel Andrus 
and Lemuel Whittlesey. Besides managing a farm of one hundred 
and twenty acres, Captain Churchill conducted a tannery, which in 
the tax lists was liberally assessed as a " faculty," or trade. 

It is to be regretted that there are no portraits of Captain Charles 
or of his wife. Enough is known of him, however, to give the pict- 
ure of a strong, brave, and manly life, forceful and efficient in all 
that made for a free and righteous government. The place he made 
for himself in the community of his day, the family he reared, the 
good name he left, and the things he accomplished, make his general 
character portrait, while the details may in part be filled in by 
hints here and there of peculiar traits or eccentric tendencies, — the 
touch of humor in likening his sons to Jacob's, in the answer to his 
wife quoted above, and the tradition that in his family devotions lie 
always prayed standing in front of the " bowfat " cupboard, in the 
north room, as the wainscotted parlor in his house was called. Of 
his wife, Mr. George J). Seymour, a descendant, writes : 

Some leaves sewed into a little book, found with other papers in Samuel 
Churchill's house, contain the following entry which, in a way, takes the place of 
other portraiture. I do not identify the handwriting, and the entry is incomplete, 
but from the context I feel sure that these tributes were written by one of 
Samuel Churchill's children : 

"March 25, 1805. Feb. 10th, Sunday, Grandmother came over to our 
house, said she did not feel very well, & wanted that I should make her some 
tea, most of the family had gone to meeting. I was very glad to please her in 
anything that she required, because that she was always so very good to us all — 
she drank some tea, thanked me for my trouble and went home. I think that 
was the last time that ever she came into our house ; she was taken sick pretty 
soon after; she died March 19. She never spoke after Sunday afternoon till she 
died, Tuesday night (three o'clock) but was in the utmost distress that could 
be. Grandmother had six children 39 grandchildren and great grandchildren 
when she died. Oh may all follow her pious example, and walk in the paths of 
virtue as she walked, whose loss we mourn. O what a kiml, kind mother we 



340 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

have lost. I think she was as tender of her grandchildren as own mothers are. 
Oh how often have I experienced her goodness, but not only me but all of her 
dear offspring. Oh how often has she spoken kindly to rae, — and took my hand 
and told me, that I was born to hard fortune. (She said my hands indicated 
hard labor.) I think I shall never forget my dear Grandmother, nor my Grand- 
father neither, — I think of him many times, — and particularly I have heard him 
read, — and in his prayers — he used to have that passage ' Man Loveth Darkness 
rather than light because" his deeds are evil,' and many more passages, when I 
hear mentioned brings my Grandfather to mind. Oh that his Children were as 
good, as kind, as Charitable to the poor as their parents were. It is striking 
that they had six Children living at their death, & only one that ever made any 
public profession of Religion, that one a minister, altho a minister he will not 
save his brethren from," — 

The writing here breaks off. The minister referred to was the 
Rev. Silas. The intimation of the grandmother's interest in 
palmistry gives a natural toijch to this simple and affectionate 
picture of her last days. 

Capt. Charles Churchill married, Nov. 19, 1747, Ltdia Belden, 
born May 1, 1730, daughter of Josiah and Mabel (Wright) Belden, 
and a lineal descendant of Richard Belden, of Wethersfield, the 
emigrant, while her paternal grandmother was Dorothy Willard, a 
descendant of Major Simon Willard, one of the founders of Concord, 
Mass., and notable as a magistrate, and a military officer, in the 
early annals of the Colony of Massachusetts. They were married as 
above, by the Rev. Joshua Belden, a kinsman of hers, of Newington.

Revolution, in 1777, involved Vermont, he, being too old to engage 
actively, withdrew to Wethersfield, his former home. He was

Children of First Wife, horn in Newington. 

I. Martha,** b. Oct. 1, 1731 ; m. Benaijah Boardman, Dec. 22, 1774, 

She was his second wife (the first, Lucy Price, of Wethersfield, 
m. 1772, who d. soon after, May 17, 1773). Mr. Boardman was 
born at Newington, May 14, 1749, son of Isaac. He settled first at 
Newington, but removed some time before July, 1777, to Hubbard- 
ton, Vt. In the battle at Hubbardton, on July 7, 1777, it is said 
that the soldiers of the British force (largely made up of Tories 
and Indians) took possession of that part of the town in which their 
house was situated, and \!rs. Boardman, having been left alone in 
the house with two small children, concealed herself with them un- 
der a feather bed on the floor. The house was soon made a tem- 
porary hospital tor the wounded soldiers, and "she suffered so 
much from fright and the smothering and heat that afterwards she 
lost many of her fingernails." Mr. Boardman was a soldier in the 
Revolution, was a sergeant in the company of Capt. Elijah Wright, 
Col. Enos' Regiment. 

He was in service on the Hudson in 1781, engaged for three 
months. 

About 1788 he removed to Ovid, N.Y., where he built a saw- 
mill in 1793, the first saw-mill in that town. He afterwards removed 
to Canoga, N.Y., where he built the first saw-mill in that town. He 
was widely known and very influential in his time. 

Children, the first two born at Newington, and the four eldest 
were baptized there, the two youngest of these were said to have 
been " brought down from Arlington,'' probably Vermont.

JOHN 5 CHURCHILL (Samuel/ Samue^ Joseph,^ Josiah^). 
Born at Sheffield, March 12, 1758, and lived there until his father's 
removal to Hubbardton in 1775. We have seen that he was in the 
battle at that place on July 7, the same j^ear, and was taken 
prisoner and carried to Ticonderoga where he was kept until 
October, when he returned to Castleton, Vt., whither his father had 
returned with his family after Burgoyne's surrender. It is possible 
that he served later in the war in the company of Capt. Roger 
Alden, of Lebanon, Conn., Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 1781. After the 
war he cleared up his farm in Hubbardton and lived there until 
1805, when he removed to Tully, N.Y. Married Martha Baldwin.

eminent for his piety, with which, perhaps, was mingled a sense of 
quiet humor ; for instance, it is said that he was accustomed to read 
oftener than any other the Psalm which reiterates " For his mercy 
endureth forever," Mercy being the name of his wife. Married,

father's liomestead. Of the number Charlotte is said to have been in every way 
the most accomplished. She was what the people in her day called a " dressy " 
person, and seems to have been a woman of unusual charm and good breeding. 
Lucy, the youngest, lived on alone at the old home, with " no one to lean on," as 
she was accustomed to say.

his regard for the Sabbath. It is said that he forbade even " the 
cracking of nuts " on the Lord's day, and a grove of butternut trees 
near his house gives a touch of probability to the tradition. With 
him regular attendance on divine worship was one of the chief con- 
cerns of life, and he would face the fiercest snow-storms of the winter, 
which blocked in even good Parson Belden, who, on one occasion, 
discovered Mr. Churchill in front of the parsonage on horseback, 
floundering in the snow-drifts, and shouted the question, " Where 
are you going, Mr. Churchill? " " To meeting," replied the sturdy 
parishioner. "Well, come in here, then," answered the parson, "as 
I am not going out in this storm." His grandson, Leonard Church- 
ill Hubbard, in 1903, describes him thus, as he appeared about 
1820: '-'He was of medium height, a rather stocky-looking man, 
round face, kind-spoken, and jovial for one of his years." He died 
June 16, 1842. Married 1st, Oct. 28, 1789, Lucretia Marsh, 
daughter of Job, of New Hartford. She died, Nov. 2, 1811, aged

This woman deserves more than the notice of birth and death. 
In the family she was long ago canonized as its saint. Every 
family tradition testifies to her pure piety and her fortitude in 
affiiction, as she was a life-long invalid. Her voluminous journal, 
running tiirongh many years, records her gentle and pious charac- 
ter. It holds little except her account of the sermons, heard from 
Sunday to Sunday, and her own religious experiences. Some 
valuable references occur liere and there, like her statement as to 
the beginning of the Newington Sunday-school, on June 20, 1819. 
at which time she writes : " Attended church in the daytime and in 
the evening. This day hath been solemn. A Sabbath-school was 
establislied in this ])lace. Four little cliiidren were committed to 
my care to instruct on the Sabbath. O Lord, help me to do my 
duty toward them, and wilt thou touch their young and tender 
minds by the influences of thy Spirit! " In August, the same year, 
she writes that her class has increased to seven, and notes in her 
prayer that they are only four and five years old. Nov. 4, 1819, 
she writes : " The Sunday-school is now out, and this day the 
scholars received their premiums. I commit my little class to 
thee, () Lord. Bless them, I pray thee, O Lord; prepare them for 
Heaven." 

These brief extracts, Mr. Seymoiir says, are a fair sample of the 
journal of this devout and devoted woman and illustrate tlie spirit 
which animated her, and probably the other founders of the Sunday- 
school. She has been described as " fervently prayerful." She 
also wrote verses addressed to different members of the family, 
and elegies lamenting the death of local worthies. The making of 
verses, indeed, seems to have been characteristic of the Newington 
Churchills of this generation, and, apparently, was one of the few 
diversions allowed by the stern Calvinism of the times. A pam- 
phlet of the semi-centennial celebi'ation of the Wethersfield and 
Berlin Sunday-school Union states that, " The Sunday-school in 
Newington, in its beginning, was the voluntary enterprise of some 
young ladies of the church." 



356 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

II. Nancy," b. March 17, 1795; m. Leonard Chester Hubbard, of 
Newington, April 23, 1826. Mr. Hubbard was the son of Tim- 
otby and Abigail (Deming) Hubbard, born May 9, 1793, and 
died Sept. 20, 1838. For his first wife he married Elizabeth 
Churchill, daughter of Deacon Levi, whose only child died 
young. Nancy, the second wife, was a person of very strong 
individuality. After her mother's death she was forced to as- 
sume the chief duties of the household, her older sister, Julia, 
being an invalid, until the time of her marriage. Mr. Seymour, 
to whom we are indebted for most of the biographical matter re- 
lating to the family of Capt. Charles Churchill, says that " she 
was a woman of great decision of character, brought up her 
family in the fear of God, and lived to great age. In her later 
years she was tenderly cared for by her family, but she never re- 
linquished her authority, nor gave up the strict Sabbath day observ- 
ance to which she had been bred in her lather's household." He 
describes her as having "jet black eyes and hair and unusually 
white skin." He recalls one Sabbath he passed in the home of her 
son Leonard, with whom she was living, and well remembers the 
austere character of the day, all secular conversation being 
avoided, and the reading of tlie Bible occupying the chief atten- 
tion. She seemed to him like an ancient prophetess. 
They lived at Newington until after the birth of their children, 
when they removed to Berlin.

REV. JESSES CHURCHILL (Jesse,* Samuel,^ Joseph,^ 
JosiAH ^). Born in Wethersfield, Conn., March 18, 1757. The tra- 
dition in the family is that, at the outbreak of the Revolution, he 
tried to enlist, but was rejected at first on account of his boyish 
appearance, but he succeeded later, and served in the company of 
Capt. Jonathan Hale, of Glastonbury, and was stationed at Boston 
January to March, 1776. He reenlisted in the company of Captain 



358 THE CHURCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

Welles, and served in New York, His regiment was at the battles of 
Long Island and White Plains. He evidently acquired a fair edu- 
cation, and perhaps became a teacher in the succeeding years. After 
his first marriage he settled for a time in Glastonbury, where his 
first child was born. About 1790 he removed to Hubbard ton and 
occupied the farm which his father had taken up in 1775, but had 
abandoned when Vermont became involved in the border warfare. 
He lived for some years in the old log-house built by his father. 
On this old homestead his seven children by the first wife were born, 
and here she died, leaving him with a family of seven children. 
Mr. Churchill then fitted himself for the ministry. It is said that 
he studied at Andover Theological School, and by his Church 
Covenant, dated at Andover, June 2, 1784, now in possession of a 
grandson, J. W. Hull, of Pittsfield, it seems that he was then a 
student. He probably took a special course. His son Norman 
writes us, in 1885 : " After the death of my mother my father took 
an abbreviated course in theology, was ordained in 1807, and began 
to preach as a Congregational minister." He removed to Litchfield, 
N.Y., the same year. He was settled awhile at New Lebanon, N.Y. 

He was chaplain of the Twenty-seventh Regiment, New York militia, 
from 1810 to 1822, and served in the War of 1812, under Colonel Bel- 
linger, in the Black River campaign, his son Norman going with him 
as his waiter. His last pastorate was at Winfield, N.Y. He died 
at Morrisville, N.Y., Sept. 29, 1828, and was buried at Winfield. 

He married 1st, in Wethersfield, Nov. 2, 1786, Hannah Board- 
MAx, daughter of Charles and Abigail (Stillman) Boardman. She 
died at Hubbardton, Dec. 10, 1804. Married 2d, Aug, 28, 1807, 
Olivp: Tildkn, daughter of John, and sister of Elam Tilden, the 
father of Samuel J. Tilden, the Democratic presidential candidate of 
1876. Married 3d, JMarch 23, 1823, Mrs. Anna Eggleston, in 
Batavia, N.Y. She was a widow with a family of children, one 
of whom Norman Churchill married.

II. George,^ b. Oct. 11, 1789. Never married. He died at Troy, 111., 
Aug. 11, 1872. He was brought up on the old farm in Hubbard- 
ton, and received the common school education in his native tovirn. 
On the removal of his father's family to New York State, he 
went to Albany, and became an apprentice in a printing office, 
served his time, and then worked as a journeyman printer until 
he was able to purchase a half interest in a small i)rinting office, 
which he soon after sold out, and started \'>'est. He obtained a 
situation in Louisville, Ky., in the " Courier " office, and worked 
there a while, and, in 1817, located in St. Louis, Mo., and being 
attracted by the fertile lands of Illinois, bought a tract of land a 
few miles southeast of Edwardsville, in that State, where he 
lived the remainder of his life. In order to raise money for the 
improvement of his farm, he worked at his trade in the office of 
the "Missouri Gazette," in St. Louis. While connected with 
that paper he wrote a series of articles, advocating the admission 
of Missouri as a free State. He assisted in establishing a 
newspaper, in Edwardsville, " Tlie Spectator," and was a con- 
stant contributor to its columns, especially in 1822-1824, while 
the contest was on to make Illinois a slave State. In the final 
defeat of this attempt he bore a prominent part. He was elected 
to the General Assembly of Illinois in 1822, and was reelected 
in 1824, showing that the people api)rove(l his course. He served 
by reelection till 1832, and in the Senate in 1838, and again in the 
House in 1844, serving in all sixteen years. He was well 
versed in the English language and literature. A diligent col- 
lector of historical documents.

She was born in Elizabetlitown, N.Y., June 3, 1819. She was 
educated in the schools of her native town, with a yc.Tr at Mrs. 
Norman Nicholson's Seminary, and a private academy at Williams- 
ville, N.Y. In 1828 she went with her father's family to Louth, 
Canada, where her mother died, and she soon after went to live 
with her older sister, Mrs. Richards, at Forestville, N. Y., where 
she finished her schooling at the private academy of Mrs. Charles 
Labatte In the fall of 1833 she returned to her father's home, 
then at Sheakleyville, Pa. Here she began her experience in 
school-teaching, which lasted until her marriage. Her husband 
was the son of Capt. Eliott Harroun, of Pembroke, N.Y., where 
he was born. Two children were born to Mrs. Harroun here, but 
died in infancy. They removed to Wisconsin in 1844. and settled 
in the township of Rosendale, being the fourth family to settle 
there, but within a few months were joined by a score of families, 
mostly from the East. Tiiey removed a little later to Sparta, Wis. 
Here they prospered, as the town grew rapidly, and Mr, Harroun, 
being a carpenter, found profitable ein|)loyment; but the fever of 
the West was still strong and so they removed again, in 1856, to 
Kansas, with their four children, the oldest about thirteen years. 
They found themselves in the midst of the war of "Border Ruffian- 
ism," and after two years were glad to get back to the North, and 
settle among civilized people, in Dodge County, Wis. Here their 
eldest boy died, and the husband met with an accident which ren- 
dered him unfit for work for some years, so that Mrs. Harroun was 
forced to resort to teaching again for her family's support. This 
teaching she continued twelve years, while her children grew up 
and became helpful as teachers, and her husband recovered in part, 
and the family prospered again. Mr. Harroun died April 23, 1889. 
Mrs. Harroun has been a diligent helper in the compilation of her 
grandfathoir's line of the family.

DEACON ELIJAH" CHURCHILL (Stephen/ Giles/ Sam- 
uel/' Joseph,- Josiah^). Born in the town of Harpersfiekl, Dela- 
ware County, ]Sr.Y., Eeb. 3, 1797, and died there, March 24, 1878. 
From a brief memoir, published by some of his children in 1878, 
which has come into the hands of the editor of this volume since the 
printing of the family of his grandfather and father, we gather a 
few traditions, which adds a little to our knowledge of them. 
Giles Churchill, about 1751, settled on the Delaware river, in what 
is now the town of Cochecton, N.Y., though he may have chosen the 
west bank, as that was within the boundary of William Penn's grant. 
Here, in an unbroken wilderness, he built a small log-cabin, and 
thither, in a short time, brought his wife, and his children were 
born, and his cleared farm began to give back goodly harvests, 
while other families were settling around him Here, in 1758, 
Stephen, the father of Deacon Elijah, was born. The rapid settle- 
ment of the lands, and, doubtless, the undue encroachments of the 
white men, aroused "the hostility of the Indians to the desperate 
resolve of driving out or destroying the invaders. Although Penn's 
purchase was supposed to be exempt, it was not deemed to be a sure 
protection to any, when once the native hordes started on their 
raids ; so that when it was found, in 1765, that the tribes were 
gathering, the settlers fled, leaving their homes and farms, to find 
safety in the older settlements. Stephen was then seven years old, 
and remembered some facts concerning the flight. The Indians 
burned their house while they were yet within sight of the smoke 
of its burning. The family had a horse upon which the mother and 
younger children rode, while their only provisions, a bag of meal, 
was laid on the back of their one cow. Under such conditions they 
pursued their flight till they reached the limits of Massachusetts, 
and probably located near relatives of the husband or wife, it is not 
known in what town. The tradition is that the old wilderness 
home was " at the forks of the Delaware river,'* but Cochecton is 
seen to be -a long distance below the forks. Stephen Churchill, 
father of Deacon Elijah, now grown to manhood, located and mar- 
ried at some place unknown to us, but appears with a small family, 
about 1785, at Harpersfield, Delaware County, N.Y., cleared up and 
improved a farm, and there spent his life. Here Deacon Elijah 
was born, as above noted. He suffered the great privations of 



Branch.] SIXTH GENERATION 385 

frontier farm-life in his early years ; but despite his limited means 
for schooling, he obtained a better than the ordinary education, and 
began to teach school at an early age, working on the farm except 
in winter, when he was teaching. His father died when he was 
about fifteen years of age, and his older brother carried on the farm 
for some years, when his younger brother, Joseph, married and took 
the farm for a while, and then, at his mother's desire, Elijah bought 
out the interests of his brothers and sisters and settled down on the 
homestead farm. His sister Esther married a Mr. Webb and settled 
in Andes, and here, when he was about thirty- three years old, he 
married his wife. He was a strong and able man, a good citizen. 
He was a leading influence in public affairs, a consistent Christian, 
and an earnest promoter of education. He was very popular in the 
community. In his younger days was captain of the local militia. 
He was an ardent Whig, and became an earnest Republican. He 
knew how to be a good father without repressing or punishing his chil- 
dren, and also knew how to make a Christian home and a Christian 
life pleasant and attractive. He joined the First Presbyterian 
Church in Stamford, with many others from Harpersfield, June, 
1834, at its organization, and was then elected elder, or deacon, an 
office which he held during his life. His funeral sermon was 
preached in the Presbyterian Church in Stamford, IST.Y., by his 
pastor, Rev. L. E. Richards, March 24, 1878. This discourse was 
published in connection with the memoir above mentioned. Married, 
at Andes, JST.Y., May 12, 1830, Sarah A. Bexedict, of Andes.

105. 

AMOS^ CHUECHILL (Joseph,^ Samuel," Samuel,^ Joseph,- 
JosiAH ^). Born in Sheffield, Mass., Oct. 1, 1774. He went with 
his father's family, in 1783, to Hubbardton, Vt. His advantages 
for school were very limited. He wrote himself, '-' I had no chance 
at school nntil the winter after I was fifteen, when I went to school 
in the back room of a lo^-house, to a very ordinary teacher. I never 
studied any books at school but the New England Primer and 
Dilworth's Spelling-book ; these I learned by heart." In spite of 
all these limitations he acquired a fair education for his day and 
place. He was a man of more than common ability and intelligence, 
a shrewd observer of men and events, a lover of history. He had 
great facility in rhyming, and his brother. Rev. Alvah, used to re- 
ceive long letters from him, written in verse, and in his articles 
prepared for the " Gazetteer," mentioned below, several pieces of 
verse appear, touched up here and there with quaint humor. When 
upward of seventy-six years, he compiled a series of articles on the 
history of Hubbardton, for the " Vermont Historical Gazetteer," in 
1851, but from notes collected many years before. These articles 
were later published in book form, rare copies of which can be 
found. The history, from his grandfather down, is fairly accurate, 
but before that generation he depended upon tradition, and his reck- 
oning is altogether erroneous. The account on pages 335-337 is 
quoted from his work. Mr. Churchill settled first in Pittsford, Vt., 
less than a mile from his father's house in Hubbardton, but on May 
21, 1821, removed to Hubbardton, and spent his days there. He 
was a good citizen, an active member of the Baptist Church in 
Hubbardton. He was physically a strong man, and a very diligent 
worker, even to old age. He was active in promoting public improve- 
ments, and instrumental in raising the monument on the Hubbard- 
ton battleground to the memory of the patriots who fought there 
July 7, 1777, and on the occasion of the celebration, July 7, 1859, 
the anniversary of the battle, he was one of tke speakers. Mr. 
Churchill lived to the advanced aged of ninety-one years, and died 
March 2, 1865. Married 1st, Jan. 29, 1799, Nabba Haven, of 
Sandisfield, Mass., daughter of Nathan. She was born May 23, 
1778, and died Sept. 2, 1842. Married 2d, Chloe Smith, of Bran-

GEN. WORTHY LOVELL « CHURCHILL (Joseph,^ Samuel,* 
Samuel/ Joseph,- Josiah '). Born in Sheffield, Mass., May 
13, 1776. He went with his father, in 1783, to Hubbardton, 
Vt., and there grew to manhood, working on the farm and attending, 
in winter, the primitive schools then procurable. He worked on the 
farm like other boys and young men of his day, and doubtless shared 
the general ambitions of young men to make good and prosperous 
farmers. About the time he came of age, the conditions of land 
settlement in Vermont had changed. The fathers of families owned 
all the farms, or their creditors held them by mortgage. Young 
men must buy except the few who remained on the homstead with 
their fathers. Mr. Churchill married in 1797, and began life in his 
native town, where he remained for several years, till three of his 
children were born. 

Then the Holland Purchase in Western New York opened iip 
a vast tract of fertile land, and thither, with many others from 
Vermont, young Churchill went. From lists of settlers, and casual 
references in Turner's " History of the Holland Purchase," as well 
as from correspondence with members of General Churchill's family, 
the editor has been able to glean a few facts of the busy and event- 
ful life of this typical pioneer of the early West. 

In the first list of settlers in the Holland Purchase, in Batavia 
Township, No. 12, Range 1, the name of Worthy L. Churchill 
stands first, and next William Rumsey, the names following in the 
order in which the land grants were assigned, so that these two 
were the first proprietors recorded, and the first settlers. Batavia 
Village was soon the centre of pioneer settlers, and the Land 
Office was established there and a town government formed. The 
first tavern was opened there. Mr. Churchill bought a large tract 
of land in that part of Batavia which became the town of Stafford. 
At the first town meeting held in Batavia, March 1, 1803, " Lovell 
Churchill," as he is there named, was chosen one of the overseers of 
the highways ; and in the following June, when a court of law was 



388 THE CHUKCHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

organized and the first grand jury empanelled, Mr. Churchill was 
a member, and next year on the traverse jury, and in 1807, at the 
first murder trial in the new county, that of James McLean, for 
the murder of William Orr, he was a juror, and with his full name? 
Worthy L. Churchill. In the primitive organization of the militia 
of the county he was active and efficient, and had passed through all 
the minor offices before 1812, for at the beginning of the war that 
year we find him in command of a regiment with the rank of 
colonel. He undoubtedly had part as an officer in the opening 
events and skirmishes along the frontiers, on the Niagara river, in 
the disastrous autumn compaign of 1812, A year later, December, 
1813, he was in command of his regiment in the army of defence 
at Buffalo, and, in the battle on December 29th and 30th, in the 
absence of General Hopkins, the command devolved upon Colonel 
Warren and Colonel Churchill. The orders had been given them to 
attempt the impossible, to capture a strong battery, defended by a 
large force of well-drilled British regulars. The American troops 
consisted of untrained and poorly armed recruits, but they made a 
brave assault in the face of a deadly fire from the heavy British guns, 
and driven back once, they were led on in a second desperate charge, 
only to be overwhelmed again, and this time to be pursued and out- 
flanked by a large body of fresh troops and Indian allies who had 
unexpectedly arrived at the British lines. In the disastrous retreat 
which followed, the villages of Buffalo and Black Kock were de- 
stroyed, the houses burned to ashes, and all who could not escape 
were brutally massacred by the Indian allies of the British. Again 
in July, 1814, Colonel Churchill had a part in the defence of Fort 
Erie, at the head of the Niagara river. Here the tide of battle 
was turned by the Genesee County Militia under General Porter 
who gathered to protect the garrison of American regulars who 
were in danger of being surrounded and cut-off. By a daring and 
skilful outflanking move General Porter led a large body of his 
troops through the woods and came down unexpectedly with such 
an impetuous assault upon the British flank and rear that they 
were forced to retire from the field and the investment of the fort. 
In this battle Colonel Churchill was severely wounded and taken 
prisoner, and carried to Canada, but soon after exchanged. He was 
colonel of the Sixty-fourth Regiment, New York State Militia, but 
afterwards attained the rank of major general of the State Militia. 

Colonel Churchill was a surveyor of land and an extensive land- 
owner and dealer in land, while cultivating a large farm. He was 
active and influential in public affairs, and was sheriff of Genesee 
County from 1820 to 1825. He died May 25, 1839. Married 1st,

removed with his father's family to Stafford, N.Y., and was brought 
up on the farm which he with his seven brothers helped to clear in 
the new country. The public schools and a few terms at Wyoming 
Academy was his fitting for his career. Entering upon trade in a 
small way with a brother, they later established a store at Church- 
ville, N.Y., but in 1845 they removed their business to Lake Mills, 
Wis., where, in 1848, Mr. Fargo, with partners, built the largest 
machine works in the State west of Milwaukee. In a few years he 
bought out the whole plant and several hundred acres of land about 
the village, which he cut up into house lots and sold as fast as the 
demand came. He also had a large farm upon which he conducted 
a creamery, and besides these branches he had a large general 
store. While active in these varied interests he was always public- 
spirited and alert for his personal duties as a good citizen. The 
village grew up around his busmess, and the people were largely in 
his employ, and he had great power over their welfare, which he 
ever exercised with wisdom and kindness.

Note. — Mrs. Mary A. Stewart, who has been my chief informant in relation to 
Daniel Churchill, her father, relates that her mother went from Brattleboro, 
Vt., to Stafford, N.Y., in the family of General Worthy L. Churchill, and 
there, at his brother's house, Daniel met and married her. They lived a few 
years in Stafford, and then in company with his brother Alvah, Daniel went to 
the West. They took their families along, Daniel his wife and one child, and 
Alvah the same. Like many of the early pioneers, they floated down the Ohio 
river on a flat boat which held all their earthly possessions. When they 
reached Aurora, Ind., their brother, Joseph, who had been settled some years at 
Sparta, happened to be at Aurora on business, and recognized them, and run- 
ning down to the shore hailed them, and all stopped over with him for the time. 
Alvah settled two years in Kentucky, and then returned to Sparta. Daniel took 
up a farm in Edwards County and lived there several years, and then engaged in 
building bridges, mostly over the Erie canal. He was a natural mechanic, and 
skilful with tools even as a boy. There are pieces of furniture and spinning- 
wheels still in existence, it is said, which he made in his youth. Mrs Huldah 
Piersons, Mrs. Stewart says, had a stand which he constructed when a boy of 
sixteen years. Sometime before 1827 he removed with his family to Tusca- 
rawas, O., and there his first wife died. His second wife, Mrs. Miller, was a 
widow with a large family, but only the youngest daughter, about twelve years 
of age, came to live in Mr. Churchill's home. His death was quite sudden, and 
his family was left poor, the prairie farm was sold for taxes, and the children 
found homes for a time with strangers, but afterwards with relatives. The 
above information, and the account of the family of Jeannette (Churchill) 
Powell, have been given me by Mrs. Stewart and Miss Mary A. Powell, the 
latter of Chadron, Neb. — Editor.

EEV. ALVAH" CHURCHILL (Joseph,' Samuel," Samuel/ 
Joseph/ Josiah '). Born in Hubbardton, Vt., May ]o, 1794. He 
grew up on the farm, and lived the sturdy life of the farmer boys of 
his day^ He attended school in winter and worked the rest of the 
year. He managed to acquire a more than ordinary education, as 
he was a diligent student of such books as he could procure. He 
never saw a grammar until after he had finished at the district 
schools, and bought the first one he saw. He learned the trade of 
carriage-maker, and was a good carpenter. He was in service for a 
time during the War of 1812, but we have no definite account of the 
circumstances. For a few years after his marriage he lived in 
Hubbardton ; but in the spring of 1819 started West, and with his 
wife and child joined his brother Daniel at General Churchill's, in 
Stafford, N.Y., and with him proceeded to their future home in the 
far West, as has been related in the account of his brother Daniel's 
journey. An opportunity to teach school opening in Lexington, 
Ky., he went there from Sparta and taught two years, then re- 
turned to Sparta and lived with his brother, who was then unmar- 
ried ; but took up a land claim and cleared a farm meantime, within 
a short distance of his brother Joseph's. On his return from Ken- 
tucky, he was ordained as a Baptist minister, and began as a volun- 
teer preacher to the isolated and poor in the outlying settlements, 
riding away on Saturday on horseback, with saddle-bags filled with 
books and tracts, preaching in some church or school-house on Sun- 
day, and returning home on Monday, while the wife with her small 
family managed the home, enduring the many hardships of pioneer 
life. His missionary work was voluntary and free. After years of 
this rough life, he removed to Wilmington, Ind., in order to secure 
better school advantages for his children There he built a church, 
and filled the pulpit until the people were able to hire a pastor. 
He engaged also in carriage-making. He was public spirited, and 
very active in school affairs. He was an ardent patriot in the years 
preceding and during the Civil War. He was a faithful minister, 
an influential and upright citizen, a self-sacrificing and loyal friend 
of all. He was not entirely successful in his business, and never 
accumulated property. Although of a strong family, his strenuous 
hard work and exposure in early and middle life told upon his

DR. JULIUS « CHURCHILL (William,' Samuel," Samuel,^ 
Joseph,- Josiah ^). Born in Hubbardton, Vt, March 20, 1802. 
Died in Champlain, N.Y., Feb. 7, 1881. He was only four years 
old when his father removed with his family to Champlain, N.Y., 
then a small hamlet surrounded by an almost unbroken wilderness. 
William Churchill, his father, bought a hundred acres of woodland 
and cleared a farm, known in late years as the old ''Junior 
Churchill Place," situated on the road to Chazy. The father was a 
large and athletic man, and a great worker, as Avere his six sons. 
They were all able men physically and mentally. Dr. Julius 
stayed at home working on the farm, and attending school in the 
winter, until the age of twenty-one, and then against the wishes and 
advice of his father he started out alone to acquire a medical educa- 
tion. He chopped wood and taught school to get money to pursue 
his studies. He studied with Dr. Miles Stevenson, of Chazy, and 
Dr. Benjamin Moore, of Champlain. In 1826-1827 he attended 
lecture courses at the Medical University at Castleton, Vt., and on 
Aug. 28, 1828, received a diploma from the Clinton County Medical 
Society to practise " Physic and Surgery," and soon began i)ractice 
in Champlain Village. In those days of wretched roads and sparse 
settlements, his practice soon extended over a wide range, which 
had to be traversed on horseback with saddlebags holding his 
stock of medicines. He was strong, enthusiastic, and skilful, and 
soon became popular, and had a very large clientage. He was fond 
of fine horses, and had the best in the country round. For some 
ten years, and up to 1840, he was postmaster of Champlain. He 
was an exceedingly active man, and fond of using tools, and about 
1840 built himself an office with his own hands, and used this same 
office in his practice till his death. He was somewhat eccentric, a great 
collector of curiosities of all sorts, pictures, ancient arms and armor, 
minerals, fossils, and in one addition to his office, a sort of green- 
house, he had a wonderful variety of flowering plants, cactus-plants, 
one of which at his death was thirty-eight years old, and ten feet in 
height. In this greenhouse he kept, also, a lot of singing birds. 
Dr. Churchill was versatile, was a lover of music, and played well 
on the violin, cornet, and clarionet. He was intensely interested in 
])hysical science, especially geology and mineralogy, and when Sir 
Charles Lyell, the eminent English geologist, visited America, Dr. 
Churchill accompanied him in his exploration of the Mississippi 
Valley and was of great help to him, and they were always after- 
wards warm friends. How he found time for all his work and his 
extensive readinsr and valuable collection of books was a wonder 



404 THE CHUECHILL FAMILY [Connecticut 

to his friends, who knew he never neglected any of his home or 
professional duties. He was always up in the morning at four 
o'clock, and never idle. He was active and influential in public 
matters, and a popular and honored member of the County Medical 
Association. His scientific studies led him to very advanced con- 
victions in regard to religion. He was indeed a very pronounced 
advocate of free thought. He was opposed and denounced by many 
as an atheist, and some of the more bigoted church-people honestly 
sought to ostracize him socially as well as to boycott his practice ; but 
the more they persecuted and railed, the firmer he became in his 
convictions about religion. Theodore Parker lectured in Champlain, 
and the doctor found that he was in accord with the great preacher's 
liberal thought, and they became friends, and continued for some 
years to correspond. He was one of the first thinking men in 
America, to accept the theory of evolution. The unreasoning and 
ignorant bigotry of many of his friends, who, as Christian believers, 
turned against him, made him somewhat bitter at times, though not 
for long. The limits of this sketch will not admit of a full account 
of a very wonderful man, one of the ablest and best of all who have 
borne the name of Churchill. An essay on the " Life of Dr. Julius 
Churchill, Physician, Philosopher, and Pioneer in Kational Thought," 
was read before the Association for Moral and Spiritual Education, 
at Brooklyn, N.Y., March, 1884, by Edward J. Moore, and later 
published in pamphlet form. The above facts and comments have 
been gathered from the sketches above mentioned by the editor of 
this volume, who feels that so notable a member of the Hubbardton 
line ought to be brought to the acquaintance of his kinsfolk 
throughout America. The postmaster at Champlain wrote me in 
1900 that none of the doctor's family remained in the town, and 
he knew not whether any were living or not. I have, however, just 
discovered his daughter, Mrs. Cornelia Traver who furnished the 
memoirs above noted, in 1886, and is now living m Chicago, and 
gives further help about her own and her brother's families. 
Married, in Champlain, N.Y., 1831, Nancy Fillmore, daughter of 
Capt. Cepta Fillmore, and a cousin of Millard Fillmore, the thir- 
teenth president of the United States. She was born Jan. 29, 1804, 
and died April 24, 1866, at Springfield, 111.

from the South. After marriage he bought a farm in New Hart- 
ford, where his wife's brother lived, and they settled there. Mr. 
Churchill was of quiet manners, medium in stature, and rather 
slender in build. His portrait, painted in 1812, shows that he was 
of attractive personality. Married, in Newington, at '' Ten Rod," 
the home of the bride's father, by the Rev. Joab Brace, Laura 
Welles, daughter of Absalom and Lorraine (Patterson) AVelles, of 
Newington, where she was born, July 23, 1789. She died in 
Bristol, July 3, 1877, and is there buried. She was a descendant, 
in the seventh generation, from Governor Thomas Welles. Her 
portrait, painted at twenty-three, shows a face, not of great beauty? 
but full of force and animation. She was an accomplished rider and 
made two journeys on horseback, before her marriage, to Lebanon, 
N.Y., to visit her uncle Stephen Patterson's family. She was also 
accomplished in dancing, and used to tell of her experience in her 
youth, and how, one evening, she wore through two pairs of satin 
slippers dancing. Her father was proud of her accomplishments, 
and was much more liberal in his ideas of religion than many of his 
neighbors, and certainly more so than her husband's people, who 
were very strict Calvinists. Her home was at " Ten Rod,*' and was 
a place of pleasant social life and generous hospitality. Left a widow 
when young, with only the farm in New Hartford, and with a family 
of five children to bring up, she showed unusual courage and re- 
source. Some seven years after her husband's death she removed 
with her family to Bristol, where her oldest daughter had settled 
upon her marriage. Mrs. Churchill was a woman of high spitit, and 
proiid of her Welles and Patterson ancestry, and while genial in 
disposition and forceful in character, she preserved the simple 
manners and quiet dignity of an earlier day.

JOSIAH BELDEN6 CHURCHILL (Samuel,^ Charles," 
Samuel,^ Joseph,- Josiah^). Born in ISTewington, Conn., Aug. 28, 
1787, and was there brought up, but removed, probably about 1806, 
to Boonville, N.Y., where he settled near his uncle Levi Churchill, 
whose daughter he married. He lived in Boonville until the death 
of his first wife, when, I learn from an account written for me by 
his daughter, Mrs. Wonser, in October, 1900, he took his children to 
Newington, and there they were placed in different homes among 
Mr. Churchill's former friends and relatives, so that they attended 
the same school. After his second marriage he removed to Sempro- 
nius and later to Summerhill, N.Y., and then in 1837 he removed 
with the younger portion of his family to Troy, Erie County, Penn. 
He died April 18, 1852. He served in the War of 1812. Married,

in Boonville, N.Y., Oct. 14, 1808, Octavia Churchill, daughter of 
Levi and Ruth (Merrills) Churchill, born in ISTewington, Dec. 14, 
1786, and died in Boonville, KY., July 20, 1820. Mrs. Wonser 
writes of her mother, " As I was but seven years old when mother 
died, I have only a child's recollection of her, but as I remember her 
she was of medium size, with very fair complexion and mild black 
eyes ; I thought then and think now that she was a very handsome 
woman." Married 2d, Phebe Marta Thompson, March 11, 1824 
She was born Jan. 31, 1800.

I. Celina Casson,^ b. Aui?. 4, 1809; m. Robekt Poole, Summer-

She died in Cazenovia, N.Y. No further record received. 

II. Marcia Boardman,^ b. Feb. 26, 1811; m. Evelyn Woodford, 

Siimmerhill, N.Y. 

She was brought up in the family of her aunt, ElizabethHubbard, 
of Berlin, Conn. Her sister, Mrs. Wonser, describes her as resem- 
bling her mother, and very handsome. There seems to have been 
something of a romance in her story which is sad in its close. 
Slie was very much beloved by her relatives and friends, and 
especially by her aunt Elizabeth's family ; and all were bitterly 
opposed to the man whom she chose for a husband, but in spite of 
their opposition she married him. Evelyn Woodford was a tailor 
and was not apparently successful. After some years of futile 
efforts he heard of an opening in Texas, and, leaving his wife, he 
went ahead to get a home ready. The wife with her two small 
children, one an infant, followed soon after on a small schooner, 
that being then the only available conveyance. A terrible storm 
swept down on them, lasting many woful days, while the young 
mother lay in her small cabin-bunk, seasick, homesick, and heart- 
sick, with her babies, one on each arm ; but after many days 
they arrived at their port and found the husband. The baby died 
soon after, and the mother's health was completely shattered. She 
lived only a year or two, another child being born to her. She died 
at Matagorda Bay, Texas, Nov. 22, 1838, and her husband soon 
after married a Texas woman. 

Children of Evelyn and Marcia {Churchill) Woodford. 

1. Milton Mozart Woodford, b. Nov. 26, 1834; m. Juliana Hitch- 

cock, Dec. 25, 1855. 

He shared the perilous voyage to Texas, with his mother, and 
after her deatli his step-mother, it is said, sentf him off on a 
return voyage, after a few years, to his uncle Samuel C, who, 
with other relatives, provided for him, after a fashion, until he 
was eighteen.

III. Ruth Merrills,^ b. March 12, 1813; m. M. G. Wonser, Summer-

Mrs Wonser writes in October, 1900, being then in her 87th year, 
" My mother, Octavia, was a very religious and conscientious woman, 
and a few days before her death, wanted us children to be baptized, 
so we stood up in a row by her bedside, and a preacher sprinkled 
some water upon our heads and said some words which we did not

then understand, but took it as a sort of compact that we were to be 
good." I regret that I do not find anywhere among the letters of 
Mrs. Wonser any account of her own girlhood. Married at the age 
of nineteen and a half years, she lived a life full of activity and 
showed herself a woman of remarkable force and ability. They 
lived a few years at Milan and Summerhill, N.Y., and then removed 
West and settled at Ellis ville, 111., and later at Erie, 111., where 
Mrs. Wonser was living with her youngest daughter Kuth, in 
October, 1900. In July, 1880, she wrote, " I have had a very active 
life, practised medicine for twenty years, but one year ago 1 fell and 
broke my hip, which has laid me up for a year, and will probably 
make me a cripple for life." She says, " In religion, I am a Bible- 
Spiritualist, and on the 30th of September, 18(J7, the society to 
which I then belonged granted me the privilege of speaking to the 
people and solemnizing marriages." A copy of this certificate is 
before the editor of this volume as he writes. It is a regular recog- 
nition and fellowship of her as a lawful minister. Dated at Geneseo, 
111., Sept. 30, 1867, and signed by Samuel McHose, President, and 
John C. Moody, Secretary.

CHESTER 6 CHURCHILL (Solomon,^ Charles/ Samuel,^ 
Joseph,- Jos i ah '). Born in Newington parish. May 6, 1798. He 
acquired a common school education in his native village and started 
out for himself at the age of eighteen. He went to Boonville, 
N.Y., and taught school the next year, but a little later he engaged 
in trade. At first he began by carrying merchandise to sell in the 
South, but succeeded so well that some ten years later he was able 
to establish a warehouse in Hartford, whence he shipped invoices 
of goods to different points in the South for sale. He showed great 
ability and with his' untiring energy a successful career was assured, 
but his health failed so that he was obliged to spend his winters 
South. On his way to Augusta, Ga., for his winter sojourn, he was 
taken sick at Rappahannock, Va., and died there Nov. 7, 1837, and 
was there buried. His nephew, Leonard Churchill Hubbard, says of 
him : " He was of medium build, well proportioned, pleasing in 
address, active and attractive." Married, Aug. 24, 1826, Lucretia 
Olmsted, daughter of Francis and Nancy (Judd) Olmsted, of West 
Hartford. She was a very accomplished person, far better educated 
than most women of her day, having studied Latin, surveying, navi- 
gation, etc., under the well-known Dr. Strong, of Hartford. She 
was a teacher of Latin and the higher branches in a select school 
in Hartford, having seventy pupils, at one time, under her tuition. 
After the death of her husband she resumed her former vocation for 
some time in Newington. She was a woman of great energy of 
mind, and possessed a wonderful memory. She survived her hus- 
band more than thirty-seven years, and died in Newington, Conn., 
March 8, 1875.

WILLIAM BOARDMAN « CHURCHILL (Jesse,^ Jesse," 
Samuel,'^ Joseph,- Josiah '). Born at Hubbardton, Vt., March 4, 
1794. From all that I can learn of Mr. Churchill, he seems to have 
been either unfortunate or a poor manager. They lived at Ridge 
Prairie, 111., until 1840. His wife's mother lived with them, and 
her brother near by. In 1840 her brother moved to Wisconsin, and 
she, taking her five children, with her mother, went with them, 
leaving her husband behind. Yet she is said to have been a good 
and noble woman. The separation was final, however, and she 
settled and passed her life at Monroe, Wis. She was a faithful 
mother, despite her desperate step. He died at Collins ville. 111., 
Dec. 9, 1856, after two later marriages, by which no children are 
reported. Married 1st, Aug. 3, 1823, Almira Humes, born in

NORMAN « CHURCHILL (Jesse,^ Jesse,^ Samuel,'^ Josep< 
JosiAH '). Born at Hubbardton, Vt., Nov. 5, 1799, and lived there 
until he was eight years old, and held many incidents of his early 
school-days there in memory. In 1807, his mother having died in 
1801, he went with his father's family to Litchfield, N.Y., where his 
father had settled in the ministry. Here and at the other places of 
his father's settlement he received a good common school education, 
mainly by his own efforts, and he was especially well versed in the 
phraseology of the Bible, having a retentive memory. He wrote 
many letters, from 1880 to 1880, to the early compilers of this vol- 
ume, and to some of his kindred who have forwarded the same to 
us ; and these letters, made up of notes and comments on the family, 
give a vast deal of information about others of the name, but not 
enough about himself. His notes are written in a quaint, and often 



Branch.] SIXTH GENEEATION 419 

half humorous style, but always with the purpose of imparting the 
facts. His many shrewd though kindly comments upon his rela- 
tives, living and dead, would be of much interest to his kindred, but 
the editor would not feel at liberty, even if there were space, to pub- 
lish the notes in this volume. He was with his father, who served 
as chaplain in the army in the War of 1812, and was his father's 
orderly, or servant. July 3, 1880, he wrote : " Sixty-five years ago I 
was a soldier at Sackett's Harbor." He learned the trade of carpen- 
ter and also that of hatter and also sleigh-maker. He had the 
Yankee faculty of doing well nearly everything that pertains to the 
construction of houses. He lived in Winfield, N.Y., the last parish 
of his father's ministry, until 1839, when he removed with his fam- 
ily, his wife and six children, to Galesburg, 111., having joined 
the colony of settlers two years before, by the purchase of a lot of 
land. He spent there the remainder of his honorable, kindly, and 
useful life. He became an influential member of the Old First 
Church, Presbyterian, was chosen an elder in 184(), and held that 
office till his death. He was a man of great strength of character, 
decidedly original and independent in thought, and quaint of speech, 
but conscientious and faithful in all the relations of life, a consis- 
tent Abolitionist, and an earnest promoter of all good institutions. 
He died in Galesburg, Sept. 20, 1886. Married, in Winfield, 
N.Y., March 5, 1826, Anna Eggleston. She was the daughter of 
his father's third wife by a former husband, and was born at 
Batavia, N.Y., Jan. 24, 1806, and died at Galesburg, 111., March 1, 
1882.

cated at Moiiticello Academy, and was afterwards a teacher in

ITHUEL« CHURCHILL (Samuel,^ Ben.tamiic/ Samuel," 
Joseph,- Josiah '). Born in Moreau, IST.Y., Aug. 21, 1806. He was 
early set to hard work, and had to win his way in the world. He 
became a strenuous, thrifty, and prosperous man. He stood for all 
good enterprises, and was a generous helper of all who seemed to 
him to need help. He was very strong in his convictions, and con- 
scientious in his decisions. He was successful in his management, 
and acquired what was, for his day, wealth. A generous supporter 
of the church, a public-spirited citizen, and ever ready to help 
others ; and yet the mystery and tragedy of his casting off his wife, 
a good, capable, and faithful woman, by divorce, — by whicft act the 
wife of his home and mother of his children was sent out into 
the world to make her way. and live her life alone, — stands out 
in strange contrast to his good and kindly deeds, and his strong 
Christian character. The fault was, perhaps, the rigid will, that 
could not bend from a decision once made. One of his children 
wrote to me some years since, that it was a mystery to her, and she 
thought it the one great mistake of his life, for her mother was an 
intelligent and capable woman, a mother whom " her children rose 
up and called blessed." He settled first in Portland, IST.Y., as a 
farmer, but in 1854 sold out his several farms and removed to Pon- 
tiac, Mich., and died there Sept. 5, 1861. Married 1st, at Batavia, 
N.Y., jNIarch, 1831, Ruth Arminda Whitman, daughter of James 
and Sabrina Whitman, of Batavia. They were divorced September, 
1842, and she died in Ellington, N.Y., July 9, 1874. He married 
2d, Lydia Marston.

PHILO CLARK « CHURCHILL (Samuel,'^ Benjamin," Sam- 
uel,^ Joseph,- Josiah '). Born at Moreau, Saratoga County, 
N.Y., Jan. 11, 1812. His father died when he was six years old. 
His mother afterward married and removed to Glens Falls, N.Y., 
and at twelve years he was apprenticed to his brother Charles, to 
learn the tailor's trade. The boy went by stage from Moreau to White-

hall, and thence by a small sailing-boat to his brother's place, near 
Lake George, — a very rough passage, and a walk alone, over a high 
mountain. He remained with his brother until he was twenty-one 
years old, and then sought out a place for himself, trying various places, 
but after a few years, with his brother Samuel, then living at Batavia, 
N.Y., he went by canal and on foot to the Ohio river, and thence 
by boat to St. Louis, and up the Missouri river to Council Bluffs, 
working their way by helping to load the steamers with wood. 
They finally arrived at Kiuderhook, Pike County, 111., where their 
eldest brother, Chester, had two trading- stores for trade with the 
Indians and surrounding farmers. After some tiine spent at 
Chester's, they returned to New York State and settled at Salem 
Cross-roads, where he became acquainted with a young girl who was 
from the northern part of the State, but attending school, boarding at 
her brother's. This girl's name was Sophronia Whedon, and after a 
year's acquaintance and correspondence they were married, and 
lived, at first, at the home of Samuel, in Batavia, N.Y., and in Sep- 
tember, 1838, they started with a span of horses and emigrant 
wagon for Illinois, overland. They were both prostrated by 
chills and fever, at Canton, 111., and on partial recovery found that 
the doctor's bill had absorbed one horse and the wagon, leaving them 
helpless. The brother Chester, warned of their plight by letter, 
came for them and took them to his home. Clark, as he was called 
by his family, entered the employ of his brother as clerk, until 
Chester died soon after, and he then settled down to farming. 
Eight years after his wife died, leaving three children, the youngest 
three months old. He married a second wife a year afterwards, 
who died Nov. 2, 1859. He married his third wife in 1860, and re- 
moved to near Peoria, 111. His removal was on account of the per- 
secution of the border ruffians from Missouri, who raided the 
farms of Northern union men. He made his home at or near 
Peoria, until 1880, when he purchased a farm at Keosauqua, Iowa, 
where he remained until his death, April 16, 1889. Mr. Churchill 
was a member, and for forty years deacon, in the Baptist Church. 
Married 1st, May 10, 1838, Sophronia Whedon, born March 10, 
1820, and died Jan. 10, 1846, at Kinderhook, 111. ; married 2d, 1847,

MAJOR" CHURCHILL (Ira/ Benjamin,^ Samuel," Joseph,'- 
Josiah'). Born in Bristol, Conn., Sept. 6, 1792. Served for 
several months in the War of 1812. Was engaged in the expedi- 
tion above Fort Erie. He settled at first in his native town, but 
some time about 1818-19, perhaps in company with his brother Bar- 
nabas, he made a journey to Ohio, took up a claim of land, and then 
returned to Connecticut for his family. The greater part of his 
journey was made on foot. It was in the winter of 1820, probably, 
that he again set out for the West, this time with oxen and sleds, 
taking along his father and mother and their younger childreuj 
Lois Delia and Ceylon M. The distance from Bristol, Conn., across 
New York State to Buffalo, in direct line, is about three hundred 
miles. Their journey, made with the clumsy ox-teams, probably 
covered in its roundabout course nearer four hundred miles. All 
possible of their household furnishings and provisions for themselves 
they carried with them. When they arrived at Buffalo the snow 
was nearly gone, so that they were forced to take to the ice on Lake 
Erie, and then, when they came to Geneva, the ice had so melted 
away from the shore that they had great difficulty to get to land. 
The rest of their journey was made by land to Greene Township, 
Trumbull County, 0. Here they cleared and cultivated farms, and in 
this town and vicinity they and their children have lived honorable 
and useful lives. Major Churchill was a well-educated man for his 
day, was an upright and influential citizen. He was postmaster of 
Greene for eighteen years. He died in Greene, Sept. 8, 1874. 
Married, at Bristol, Conn., April 17, 1818, Eui^ice Payne, daughter 
of Solomon and Mary (Clark) Payne.

ASA GILDERSLEEVE « CHURCHILL (Lemuel,^ William," 
Samuel,'' Joseph,- Josiah'). Born near Elmira, N.Y., March 11, 
1798. Mr. Churchill seems to have settled with his first wife at 
Wellsboro, Tioga County, Penn., where several children were born, 
and where he had a good farm, it is said. Some time before 1860 he 
started from his home on a joui-ney, his first wife having died. 
He had become quite a local celebrity, from his faculty of ready 
rhyming upon all sorts of events and topics. He went on foot to 
Niagara Falls, making and reciting his rhymes along the way, to get 
his food and lodging, and it is said that he was generally welcome 
to the farmers' homes, where he would gather a company of young 
and old about him, and amuse them by reciting poetical legends, 
mostly his own, or composing new ones for the locality where he 
happened then to be. Business advertisements in rhyme were a 
specialty, and obituaries, and doleful, or heroic, or tragic, or comic

events were treated " to order," and in this way he earned his living, 
it is said. The Huntsville, Ont., "Forester" gives a sketch of his 
eccentric character, unique career, and tragic end. He was known 
in Huntsville as '< the Muskoka poet," or otherwise as the " Old 
Poet Churchill." It is said that he intended to return home after 
visiting Niagara Falls, but that he evidently found his wandering 
way of life pleasant, and kept on into Canada. After several years 
he located at Collingwood, Out., where he married a second wife, a 
widow, and soon after removed to Parry Sound, where he took up 
and settled upon a farm, on which he lived until his second wife 
died, when he returned again to Huntsville, where he married, for 
his third wife, a German widow by the name of Albert, who, in her 
turn, died some five years later. In all these years the old man had 
not returned to, nor yet heard from, any of his children or relatives 
in the States. Some six weeks before his death occurred, this old 
man of ninety -four years started on foot from Huntsville to revisit 
his children, if he could find them, at Wellsboro, Penn., and had 
actually arrived within a few miles of his old home when he was 
run down by an express train, while walking on the New York, 
Pennsylvania, & Ohio Railroad track. 

It is to be regretted that we have failed to obtain answers to 
repeated appeals to the daughters to give their own dates and 
families.
