INTRODUCTION. 

In gathering material for his "Genealogical History of the 
Hoyt, Haight, and Hight Families," and in tracing his own ances- 
try in other lines, the compiler of these records collected a mass of 
materials which it seemed desirable to preserve in some form more 
durable than manuscript notes. In order to give some degree of 
completeiiess to the work, he has attempted to include all Salis- 
bury and Amesbury names that could be obtained from any acces- 
sible source, down to about the year 1700, — the first three or four 
generations of the early settlers. 

It would be a comparatively easy task to copy and print the 
early town records of births, marriages, and deaths, down to 1700 ; 
but, while all these have been included, much more has been 
attempted, as will be seen in the records printed in this volume. 
After the town records, probate records and deeds are the main 
reliance, though other court records, church records, old journals 
and letters, are often of great importance in completing the account 
of some family. 

The early families of Salisbury and Amesbury were so related 
to those of surrounding towns that it was found impossible to give 
anything like a full and connected outline of the former without 
including many early families of Newbury, Haverhill, Ipswich, and 
Hampton. The latter will therefore appear with the former, in 
alphabetic order. 

One who has never attempted the "task of preparing a genealogy 
has no idea of the amount of time and labor often required to 
prove the truth of a statement that may occupy but a single line. 
The genealogist must often ponder a problem for months, and 
even years, before the true solution is found ; sometimes the miss-

ing fact turns up in the most unexpected way ; sometimes it is 
never found, as the required records are wanting. It was at first 
intended to call attention to all errors found in printed genealogies 
of the families here given ; but that plan was soon abandoned as 
impi-acticable in the space available. Only the most important 
have been noted. One source of errors in dates is the fact that 
persons unused to such researches often call the " 1st month" of 
the old records January, instead of March, as it should be given. 
The fact that the year usually began March 25 instead of Jan- 
uary 1, is another source of confusion. In every case of doubt, it 
has been the endeavor to consult and follow the original record, if 
possible. When, therefore, the records here given do not agree 
with those heretofore published, they should not be considered 
incorrect without consulting the originals. In many cases, errors 
have been found in official copies, some of them quite ancient. 
No one who has had experience in such matters would venture to 
say that there are no errors in this volume ; but it is hoped that 
they will not be found numerous. 

This work is not intended to be a complete history, even of the 
early generations of the families included. It proposes to give 
only the bare outline of essential facts. Other persons can build 
upon this foundation, and fill in the details of each family history, 
in separate volumes, where it has not already been done. One is 
strongly tempted to dwell upon the life of a first settler like 
Bailey ; the forests ; the first paths and roads ; the fish weirs ; the 
ship-building ; the early churches and their pastors ; the Indian 
conflicts and those persons who figured therein ; the early mills of 
Osgood, Morrill, Currier, and others, prophetic of the later develop- 
ment along the Powow river ; the witchcraft delusion with which 
the Martins, Bradburys, Morses, and Pike were concerned; the 
persecutions of Quakers, Baptists, and others that did not con- 
form to the strict rules of the standing order, like Macy, Peasley, 
Goodale, and Pike ; the places and persons immortalized by Whit-

tier's pen ; — but both space and plan forbid. "We can only remark 
that there lived in this region men of strong character and liberal 
sentiments, in advance of their time, as the records prove. 

One who would write a correct and complete genealogy of the 
early Puritan families must endeavor to live among them, to learn 
their mode of thinking and acting, what removals they would be 
likely to make, or alliances by marriage, often so closely related to 
removals. The same impulse which caused them to leave their 
homes in Old England seems to have led many of them to change 
their residence in New England, and share in the founding of dif- 
ferent settlements, like their descendants of this century in the 
West. This is illustrated in the history of William Sargent, and 
many others. The movement of the first generations was along 
the sea coast and up the Merrimac valley. Some of the next gen- 
erations moved further along these lines into New Hampshire and 
Maine. There was, however, some movement towards the south 
and west. Salisbury was evidently the headquarters for the set- 
tlement of Nantucket ; and some families from this region removed 
to Block Island, Hartford and other Connecticut towns, western 
Massachusetts, and New Jersey. 

Often the introduction of a new surname into Amesbury or 
Salisbury was caused by the marriage of a young man from some 
other town to the daughter or granddaughter of one of the orig- 
inal settlers. 

One is often surprised to find how constant and frequent was 
the intercourse between different towns of New England in those 
early days ; and visits to Old England were not infrequent with 
the first generation, as in the case of John Wheelwright, William 
Hooke, Robert Pike, John Eaton, Robert Ring, and others. It is 
also a matter of surprise that so many of the first settlers, — 
Francis Dow, Thomas Dummer, Samuel Groom, John Hall, 
Samuel Hall, John Hodges, John Sanders, and others, — returned 
to England and spent the remainder of their days there. 



6 OLD PAMLIES OF SALISBURY AND AMBSBUEY. 

The desire of different towns to secure the services of skilled 
artizans often led to removals. Towns sometimes made offers of 
grants of land and other privileges which were not accepted by 
the grantees, and therefore do not prove a residence in those 
towns. Thus John Hoyt, brickmaker, received conditional offers 
of clay pits, etc., from Haverhill and Ipswich ; but we have no 
proof that John Hoyt of Salisbury and Amesbury ever lived in 
those towns. Job Clement, tanner, of Haverhill, was offered a 
freehold in Newbury, but did not comply with the conditions, and 
soon afterwards removed to Dover. William Osgood, millwright, 
after working in other towns, received special privileges in both 
Salisbury and Amesbury, because his services were so much in 
demand. 

Records of births, marriages and deaths are often wanting ; the 
registry of deeds and the probate records do not contain the names 
of all residents ; hence it is important to supplement these with 
information from other sources. Before commencing the geneal- 
ogy proper, we shall therefore print all the important early lists of 
names and other original documents that we have been able to 
jobtain, and upon which the subsequent work will, to some extent, 
be based. 

Pkovidence, E. I., August, 1897. 



SETTLEMENT OF SALISBURY. 

From the "Records of Massachusetts," we find that, on petition 
of "Mr. Bradstreete, Mr. Dudley Jr., Capt. Dennison, Mr. Clarke 
of Newburjr, Mr. Woodbridge, Mr. Battye [Batt], Mr. Batter, 
Mr. Winsley, Hen : Bilye, Giles Firman, Richard Kent, and John 
Sanders,"* permission "to begin a plantation at Merrimack" was 
granted them, Sept. 6, 1638, with power to add to their number. 
The plantation was named " Colechester," Sept. 4, 1639; name 
changed to "Salsbury," Oct. 7, 1640. 

On the Salisbury records is found the following entry : 

" 1639, the third month. 

" At a meeting at merrimack of M' Simone Bradstreet, Mr Samuell 
Dudly, Mr Danniell Dennisonn, Cristopher Batt, Samuell Winsley, John 
Sanders : 

"It was ordered that there shall be 2 divisions of Meadow, the one nerrer, 
the other farther, the nerrest shall haue fower Acres to Each 100ii[£], the 
other left to farther Consideration. 

" It was further ordered that vpland for planting lotts shall be divided so as 
he that hath vnder 50ii shall haue 4 Acres, and he that hath aboue 5(fli to 
ISQii shall haue 6 Acres, and all aboue shall haue 4 Acres to Euerie lOQii. 
"Allso, it was ordered that all lotts granted to singlemen are on Condition that 
they shall inhabit here before the 6 of may next, and such as haue families 
that they shall inhabitt here before the last of October next." 

The last clause strictly means October, 1639, though October 
of the next year may have been intended. The date of the " first 
division " of land is not given ; but there are grants to four per- 
sons dated 1639, and many are dated 1640. The " first division " 



* It will be seen that, of the twelve original petitioners and grantees, only 
five (Dudley, Batt, Winsley, Biley, and Sanders) received land and settled in 
Salisbury. Four of the twelve, Simon Bradstreet, Rev. Samuel Dudley, Daniel 
Denison, and Rev. John Woodbridge, belonged to the family of Gov. Thomas 
Dudley. Three of the others, Christopher Batt, Edmund Batter, and Henry 
Biley, were closely related, and all three came from Salisbury, Eng. Batter 
lived in Salem, Mass. Rev. Samuel Dudley afterwards married a sister of 
Henry Biley. Dr. John Clark, Rev. John Woodbridge, and Richard Kent, 
lived in Newbury, at that time. Giles Firman was of Boston, Ipswich, and 
Haverhill, returned to England about 1644, a physician and clergyman. Five 
or more of the twelve were from Wiltshire, Eng. — [N. E. Hist. Gen. Beg., 
1866 and 1871.]

was, therefore, in 1639, though some subsequent ones may have 
been recorded among the "first." The time of recording the 
grants, in their present form, is indicated by the vote, April 14, 
1643, that all grants of land given by the " Towne of Salsbery " 
shall be recorded in the new book by the last of June next, allow- 
ing the clerk a penny for every grant so recorded, and 6d for the 
copy of every man's particular grants, together. 

The following is a copy of a paper found in the Massachusetts 
archives, Boston, without date, but indexed under 1639. The 
use of the name "Colchester" places the date of the original 
record between September, 1639, and October, 1640, unless the 
new settlement used the name before it was authorized by the 
General Court. The Salisbury records have the name "Merri- 
mack ' ' in May, 1639. The Boston copy must have been made 
after October, 1640, as it uses the name " Salisbury " :

records, Carr, Morrill, Macy, Fitts, wid. Christian Brown, and per- 
haps Rowell, are not mentioned as participating in the "first divi- 
sion,"* though they all received land in 1640, and Macy in 1639. 
On the other hand, Allen, John Bayly, Jr., Barnard, Barnes, Bus- 
well, Carter, Clough, Dickison, French, Goodale, Greenleaf, S. 
Hall, Hoyt, Ilsley, Ladd, Moyce, North, Parker, Partridge, and 
Wells are all given on the Salisbury records as receiving land in 
the " first division." John Clifford appears on the earlier list of 
thirty-seven, but not on the later list of sixty-nine. Lewis Hulett 
does not appear on either list, though Merrill assigns him a house 
lot in 1639, and his name appears later. 

There is, perhaps, a geographical significance in the Boston list of 
thirty-seven. By referring to Merrill's map, History of Amesbury, 
it wiU be seen that all these lots were located on the "circular 
road," except those of Fuller, Macy, Rowell, and Brown. The 
list looks as if Fitts, Rowell, and Brown were added later, and 
wid. Brown may have first had the lot of her son Henry Brown 
on the "circular road." Macy's lot is given on the " road to the 
neck." This leaves only Fuller's lot on the straight piece of 
" beach road," and that lot is represented as lying some distance to 
the north of the road. It seems probable that the first lots laid 
out were all on the " circular road," except, perhaps, those of 
FuUer and Macy, and they either located away from others, or 
afterwards exchanged lots for those represented on the map. 
Later, in the same year, perhaps, the straight "beach road" con- 
necting the two branches of the "circular road" was laid out, 
and most of the new comers were located on that road. The 
exceptions were John Bayly, Jr., who located next to his father, I. 
Buswell (probably not W. Buswell, as Merrill gives it,), and Ladd 
on the "circular road;" French, Partridge and Wells on the 
"road to the neck," with Macy. All the above, over fifty per- 
sons, who probably received lots within a few weeks or months of 
each other, were placed on the new Salisbury book in 1648 as hav- 
ing part in the "first division." 



* They all, doubtless, received land in the " first division," but may have 
failed to pay for recording their grants in the " new book."

of the beach lot list. 



definite arrangement. The name of Tho. Bradbury stands first. We have 
arranged the names alphabetically. We fail to find among the signatures the 
names of the following : George Carr, John Clough, Josiah Cobham, John 
Cole, John Dickison, Edmund Elliot, John Gill, Andrew Greely, John llsley, 
Abraham Morrill, Robert Pike, Thomas Rowlandson, Dea. Richard Wells, Rev! 
William Worcester, and some younger men, all of whom we suppose to have 
been residents of Salisbury at that time, though three or four of them may 
possibly have been residing elsewhere in 1654. Samuel Hall was probably 
in England at that time. The Amesbury commoners all signed, except 
Orlando Bagly and John Colby, the latter a young man, whose father signed.

Ambros, John Ayer Sen., Christopher Batt, Josiah Cobham, 
Francis Done, Mr. Dumer, Enoch Greenleaf, Goodman Harrison, 
John Hodges, Lewis Hulet, Joseph Parker, Daniel Peirce, and 
perhaps others. The case of Robert Ring against the town of 
Salisbury, involving the rights of non-resident commoners, was 
then pending in the courts.

OLD FAMILIES OP SALISBURY AND AMESBUBY. 



Purchase of Mr. Hall's Farm. 
Samuel Hall sold to the town of Salisbury, in 1657, his farm 
of 100 acres, "lying towards Hampton," which he bought of 
Samuel Dudley. On the Salisbury records, under date of 1665-6, ( 
and on the files of the Supreme Court, Boston, under date of 
1674, we find lists of 

^^ Names of those that paid y^ purchase of Mr. Hall's farm, with

* Tho. Bradbury Jun. and Jno. Stevens Ji*. are connected by |a brace, with 
a joint tax of 0=08^10. As Mr. Bradbury immediately precedes them, 
perhaps the brace should connect the two Bradburys, with a joint tax of 
3=01=6. 



SEPARATION OF AMESBUEY PROM SALISBURY. 17 

There are two lists, the first containing 53 names, with the 
tax of each person ; the second, 48 names, with the number of 
each person's lot. The order of names in the two is entirely- 
different, except that Mr. Worcester heads both lists. The two 
are here combined, and the arrangement made alphabetic. Where 
the spelling of the two differs, the first, or tax list is followed. 
On the second, or lot list, are "John Coles," '■'■old Moys," " Oapt. 
Pike," '■'Mr. Stanian," and Samll; Winsley." The names 
"Capt. Pike" and "Widow Morrill" imply that the second 
list was written at a later date than the first. Abraham Morrill 
died in 1662, and his widow married Thomas Mudgett in 1665. 

Separation of Asiesbtjry prom Salisbury. 

According to the agreement of 1654, the new town was to be 
formally separated from the old when it could secure and maintain 
a minister. Unsuccessful efforts were made in 1660 to obtain 
Mr. Shubael Dummer, and in 1665 to obtain Mr. Showell, Mr. 
Woodbridge, and Capt. Robert Pike, to serve the new town as 
minister. In 1666 thte new town was incorporated by the General 
Court. The town voted to adopt the name Amesbury in 1667, 
and the name was confirmed by the General Court in 1668. Mr. 
Benjamin Woodbridge served as minister for two or three years, 
1666-69. Mr. Hubberd,* or Hoberd, of Kittery, was minister, 
1669-72. Rev. Thomas Wells, the first settled pastor, began his 
pastorate of sixty- two years in 1672 or '3. 

Between 1654 and the formal separation, the two towns were 
distinct in matters pertaining to land, and some other town 
affairs ; but the inhabitants of Amesbury were expected to attend 
divine service in the old town, and support its minister. This 
they often declined to do, and held meetings of their own, under 



* Perhaps Rev. Jeremiah Hobart, or Hubbard, b. ab. 1630 or '32, who grad. 
H, C. 1650, was called from Lynn to Wells in 1667, but remained there only a 
few months. He was the son of Rev. Peter Hobart of Hingham, and brother 
of Rev. Joshua Hobart. Rev. Jer. Hobart was ordained and settled in Tops- 
field, Mass., Oct., 1672; settled in Hempstead, L. I., in 1683, and in Haddam, 
Ct, in 1691. He d. in 1715.

the lead of Peasley, Macy, and others, for which they were 
fined.* 

Amesbtjey Commonbks in 1667-8. t 

Feb. 18, 1667-8, four sets of lots, 25 in each set, were drawn 
by the following persons : 

Thomas Barnard, Sen. Klohard Currier Robert Jones 

Thomas Barnard, Jr. Edmund Elliott George Martin 

William Barnes Samuel Foot William Osgood 

Henry Blaisdell James George Robert Quenby 

Lt. Philip Challis Nathan Gould Widow Rowell 

John Colby Jerrard Hadden William Sargent 

Isaac Colby John Hoyt, Sen John Weed 

Edward Cottell John Hoyt, Jr. Goody Whitteridge 

William Huntington 

Salisbury seems to have had about twice as many inhabitants 
as Amesbury, soon after the formal separation, say in 1670. 



* As early as 1642, the town of Salisbury ordered that thirty families should 
remove to the west side of the Powow river [Amesbury] before May, 1645. In 
1649, the inhabitants of the new town were unsuccessfnl in their petition 
to the General Court for "exemption from rates to the ministry of the old 
town," that they might sustain the ministry among themselves; and in 1658 
they were again refused when they petitioned that they might be a distinct 
town. 

t Supreme Court files, Boston, and Amesbury records. There were a few 
other owners of land in Amesbury at that time, as will appear from the pre- 
ceding and following paragraphs. John Bailey, Samuel Colby, Thomas 
Haynes, Thomas Macy, Joseph Peasley, and Walter Taylor had owned land 
in Amesbury, and some of them probably still retained ownership, even if 
non-resident. Thomas Currier, John Nash [Ash], William Hackett, and 
most of the young men named on the list of meeting-house seats, either 
owned land and town rights in 1667, or acquired them soon after that date. 

Persons might own land, obtained by purchase, without being " common- 
ers." The " commoners " were the owners of all common or undivided land, 
and entitled to shares in any new division of that land. This point seems to 
have been involved in the suit of Robert Ring against the town of Salisbury. 
The term "townsman" seems to have meant a legally recognized inhabitant, 
entitled to participate in town affairs. He was generally a " commoner," 
also. " Township " was sometimes used in Amesbury to indicate prospective 
rights. Fathers were granted "townships" for their minor sons, and for 
their daughters, if they had no sons, thus conferring rights on the future 
husbands of those daughters. 



AMESBUEY COMMONBKS. 19 



Ameshury Meeting-house Seats, July, 1667.

Forty-two seats, as given by Merrill, and probably a few more, 
including all the principal men and a few women. 

The list of thirty-six "voters and commoners " at the incor- 
poration of Amesbury in 1666, as given in Merrill's History, is 
evidently intended to include all who had been voters from 1654 
to 1666. Isaac Colby should perhaps be included, as he had not 
then removed to Haverhill. Samuel Colby was probably a resi- 
dent of Haverhni in 1666. Anthony Colby had been dead six 
years, and his widow was the " Goody Whitteridge " mentioned 
among the lot-owners. Thomas Macy removed to Nantucket in 
1659. Valentine Rowell died in 1662, and his widow is named 
among the lot-owners. Joseph Peasley Sen. died in 1660. Joseph 
Peasley Jr. was not of age in 1666. He was granted a "town- 
ship ' ' in Amesbury in 1660, but lived in Haverhill after he 
became of age. Thomas Currier was hardly of age, but was 
granted a "township" in 1666. The name Orlando Bagley 
does not appear on the list of seats or lots ; nor have we seen it, 
on any original document, save one, as of Ameshury, prior to 1677. 
Probably Orlando® then took the oath of allegiance. John Bailey 
Sen. died in 1661, and his son John Jr. was a resident of New- 
bury in 1666. It is doubtful whether George Carr Jr. was a 
" voter and commoner " in Amesbury in 1666, though he was in 
1670, or earlier. Thomas Haynes received grants of land in 
Amesbury in 1661, '66, and '75, and took the oath there in 1677, 
but his name is not on Merrill's list of "thirty-six," nor on the 
above lists of commoners and meeting-house seats. 



*John Colby's name does not appear in Merrill's list of meeting-house 
seats, History of Amesbury; but he is probably one of the " few more," lost 
by the defacing of the original record.

OLD FAMILIES OF SALISBURY AND AMESBTTEY. 



The absence of Walter Taylor's name from the above lists of 
commoners and meeting-house seats is noticeable. He was made a 
"commoner " in 1659, received land in Amesbury in that year and 
in 1662, and was probably of Amesbury in 1680 and at his death, 
in 1686-7. His name appears somewhat frequently on the court 
records for " using cursing speeches" and other offences. He 
may have pursued his calling as a " shipwright " in various places. 
Edward Goodwin and William Hackett were granted common 
rights, and John Nash [Ash] and Thomas Nichols were made 
townsmen in Amesbury in 1667, and are properly excluded from 
Merrill's list of "thirty-six." 

Salisbury Petition, 1677.*

convenience of reference. Thomas "Mugget" heads the original. The 
church members are given in the original order. The first five were old men 
living in Amesbury; the other seven lived in Salisbury.

petition proves nothing, except that the person did not sign. In tax lists the 
case is different, though errors and omissions are common, even there.

Note. The petition, p. 23, is from Hist. Gen. Reg., 1864, p. 76. The 
spelling has been changed in a few cases, only, where there are evidently 
errors in copying or printing that might prevent the recognition of the names. 

The " Freemen," except Rev. Thomas Wells, were original settlers of both 
Salisbury and Amesbury, now old men, and doubtless "free" from training. 
Challis had been Lieutenant of the Salisbury company, and was appointed 
Lieutenant of the Amesbury company in June, 1680. John Hoyt, Sen. had 
been Sergeant.

Early Records op Births, Marriages, and Deaths. 

The early town records of Salisbury have been preserved, and 
are tolerably complete. The record of births properly begins in 
1639, though there are two entries dated 1637, and one 1638. 
The record of deaths begins in 1641, and of marriages in 1660. A 
copy of all these, not indexed, is deposited in the office of the 
Town Clerk of the present town of Amesbury. Another modern 
copy, indexed for names to 1844, is kept in the office of the Town 
Clerk of the present town of Salisbury. The Old Norfolk County 
records, now in the office of the Registry of Deeds, at Salem, give 
Salisbury births from 1639 to 1671, deaths from 1641 to 1673, 
and marriages from 1641 to 1672, with a modern copy. It will 
be seen that the record of marriages from 1641 to 1659 is found 
only at Salem ; but there are in existence two ancient and three 
modem copies of records of births 1639 to 1671, deaths 1641 to 
1673, and marriages 1660 to 1672*. These five copies are sub- 
stantially the same, for these dates, with but slight variations. 
Fortunately, however, one of the two ancient copies sometimes 
supplies what is lost or illegible on the other.f 

The original records of births, marriages, and deaths in Ames- 
bury commence with the year 1686 ; and the modern copy in the 
office of the Town Clerk of Amesbury is indexed for names and 
dates. From the first settlement down to about 1667, the births, 
marriages, and deaths of Amesbury families were recorded on the 
Salisbury books, no distinction being made between Salisbury and 
Amesbury families. From the incorporation of the town of Ames- 
bury, separate records of vital statistics were probably kept for that 
town ; but they are now missing, on the Amesbury records, for the 
eighteen years from 1668 to 1685, inclusive. This break is par- 
tially filled by a few entries of Amesbury births, marriages, and 
deaths on the Old Norfolk County records at Salem for 1668 and 



* There are also some later records of Salisbury and Amesbury births, 
marriages, and deaths before 1700, in another building, among the County 
Court Records, at Salem, but they are mostly duplicates of those found on 
the town books. 

t The account of Salisbury Families, published by A. W. Brown in K E. 
Hist. Gen, Reg., 1853 and '54, is reasonably accurate, though there are some 
mistakes and omissions, sometimes of whole families, as the Ro wells. 



28 OLD FAMILIES OF SALISBURY AND AMBSBTJEy. 

1669, and others for 1670-1676 on an ancient Norfolk County 
book in the office of the Town Clerk of Salisbury, of which no 
modern official copy has yet been made.* The record for nine 
years, 1677-1685, is entirely lost, so far as now appears, besides a 
few entries, about the jea.v 1668, which seem to have dropped out 
between the different record books. The town record has but two 
marriages from 1690 to 1697 inclusive, though there are ten Ames- 
bury marriages for 1693 recorded at Salem. It is this deficiency 
of records which makes it so difficult to obtain a complete geneal- 
ogy of early Amesbury families. Recourse must be had to probate 
records,' deeds, and other authentic documents ; and much mate- 
rial mast often be collected before even a single line of ancestry 
can be carried back to the first settlement. 

Unfortunately, the earliest records of the churches, in both 
Salisbury and Amesbury, have been Lost. 

So many errors were found in Coffin's History of Newbury, 
that the town records have been examined, and most of the New- 
bury dates, for families included in this book, are taken from those 
records, preference being given to the oldest copy. 

The earliest records of births, marriages, and deaths in Haver- 
hill were written in chronological order, down to about 1664. At 
that time a new record was commenced, arranged by families. 
Many of the old entries were copied into this book, and a few 
errors were made in copying. We have endeavored to follow the 
oldest copy in which the date appears. 

The Ipswich dates are mostly taken from the town records, 
which, unfortunately, are missing for the earliest years of the 
settlement. 

The Hampton dates are mostly from Dow's History of Hamp- 
ton, which seems to be quite full and accurate. 



* In the same book are records of similar dates for Haverhill, Hampton, 
and Exeter; but most of the book is filled with records of the town of Salis- 
bury, of later date, and this is doubtless the reason it has remained at Salis- 
bury. 



EXPLANATIONS. 



29 



Explanations and Abbeeviations. 

The letters in brackets after dates indicate the records from 
which the dates are taken. 

The probate records are at Salem, unless otherwise specified. 
The first date given for a will is the date of the will itself, the 
second is the date of proof. 

Under each surname, each individual is designated by a certain 
number. When the history of that person is resumed, the same 
number is repeated, in bold face figures ; and when the same per- 
son is elsewhere referred to, the number is sometimes prefixed in 
parentheses, to identify the individual. The sign -|- indicates that 
the family record is continued in this volume. 

Small figures after a Christian name designate the generation. 
Names in italics, placed in parentheses after a person's surname, 
indicate the ancestors of that person. The use of small capi- 
tals in printing a name in the record of a marriage shows that a 
further account of that person will be found in this volume, under 
that surname, in its proper place in the alphabetic arrangement. 

The double date is given for the year, between January 1 and 
March 25, wherever it can be determined with any degree of cer- 
tainty.

1 Orlando Baglby [of Amesbury ?] ;* m. March 6, 1653- 
4[S Sm], Sakah^ Colby (Anthony^'). Both were living in 1662, 
[div. est. Anthony Colby ]; but they may have died soon after. 
He was apparently not living in Amesbury in 1677 and 1680 ; 
and both were dead in 1700. f Children :

3 II Sarau, b. ; m. April 5, 1681[S], John Mack. -\- 



of Ip., deed. ; no chil. of his own. Whitmore, in "Ayres Family," states that 
he had Sam., b. 1722-3, and three other children, all d. young. The age of 
Sam. renders the statement somewhat improbable. 

NoTp. The Ayer and Ayres families were published by W. H. Whitmore 
in Hist. Gen. Eeg., 1863 and '65; also in a separate volume of the "Ayres 
Family," especially that of Capt. John of Ipswich and Brookfield. His 
spelling of the surname is here followed, to distinguish the families. 

* We have found it difficult to obtain proof that (1) Orlando Bagley lived 
in Amesbury at all, [See pp. 13, 19.] We have found no trace of his ancestry. 
There was a John Bagley in Salem who had children b. 1681-86; but we have 
no proof that he was related to Orlando. There was an Alice Baggerly mem- 
ber of Salem chh. 1637. 

t Orlando and Sarah were the only children of Sarah (Colby) Bagley living 
in 1700 [div. est. Susanna (Colby) Whitridge.] We do not find either Sen. or 
Jun. used in connection with Orlando Bagley before (4) Orlando became of 
age. In 1712, (2) Orlando Sen. deeded land to his sons (4) Orlando Jun. and 
John. We have found no Bagley probate or deeds prior to 1700; Orlando 
without suffix in 1706, 1709, and 1710; Orlando Sen. in 1707; Orlando Jun. in 
1711 ; in addition to the above.

Children : 



* Given "sisier of John Emery, Sen.," by Coffin; but she was probably 
young enough to be sister of John Emery, Jr., an,d d.au. of John Emery, Sen. 
This relationship corresponds with the term "6ro.," used in the will of 
John! Bailey, Sen., meaning father of son's wife. Mrs. Christopher Batt was 
" sister of Abraham Toppan," in the same sense. Coffin has confounded the 
two John Emerys in the mar. to Wid. Webster. 

tA Joshua Bailey d. April 7, 1652[Nb]; no age or relationship given. 
Perhaps " b. Feb. 17, 1652-3," is an error. In our copy of Nb. rec, the date of

t He was apparently a member of the Salisbury church in 1677, though it 
may possibly have been his son. [See p. 20.] 

t Wid " Elenor Barnard," in settling her husband's estate, appeared in court 
with "four of her sons," in 1678. Probably one or more were sons-in-law. 
There were nine children when the estate was divided, in 1679. 

John Hall, then in England, sent through his mother, Mrs. Rebecca 
Symonds of Ipswich, New England legacies of Samuel Hall. March 30, 1682, 
he wrote to her: " If any old Barnards of Salisbury New Towne children be 
poore by reason of their father's massacre, I leave their relief to your consid- 
eration."

2d wife. 

t The record states that he embarked at Southampton, 1638, aged 37, with 
wife Ann, 32, sister Dorothy, 20, and five children under 10 years old. This 
would give his birth 1601, and hers 1606; but the marriage record makes them 
both 26 in 1629. [G. R., 1893, p. 135]. Her age given in her will also makes 
her birth in 1603. The wife of Christopher Batt has been given " Ann Top- 
pan, sister of Abraham Toppan." This error probably arose from the fact 
that Abraham Toppan's son mar. Ann Batt's daughter. 

From the Biley will [p. 62], and other documents, it is evident that Chris- 
topher Batt and Henry Biley of both Salisburys were cousins. Thomas Batt,

not a bro. of Christopher. 

John Hall, of London, in 1664-5, speaks of receiving a letter from Mrs. 
Batt, prob. wid. of Chris. ; and in 1669 of "cosen Thomas Batt," perhaps the

m. Maey^ [Cottle {Edward}) ? Sv].* They appear to have been 
living in "Jamaica" [West Amesbury], in 1668 and '70, and he 
was of A. in 1667. f Savage states that he rem, to Nantucket, 
where he purchased a half share in 1678. Children :

reed, land in the " first division." He came from Sarum, or Salis-

Children : 



* She would be only 15 yrs. old in 1668. 

t Savage gives John Bickf ord of Dover [Oyster River, now Durham] , in 1647 ; 
had sons John, Joseph, and Thomas. It is possible that Samuel was also a' 
son of the first John; but we have found no proof of such relationship. 
Savage also states that the second John m. Temperance, and Thomas of Dur- 
ham m. Bridget, both daus. of Wm. Furber. He gives 3 chil. of John and 
Temperance, b. 1660-1672; but at Exeter is a will of John Bickford, Sen., of 
Oyster Eiver, Feb. 12, 1685; Oct. 7, 1697; which ment. wife Temperance, but no

been b. ab. 1685. Could she have been wid. of John ?

who d. in 1661; but a Nicholas of York was freeman in 1652, who may have 
been father of Nicholas of S. Eec. of chil. of (18) Nicholas may be incomplete.

ing Brown's wife. " The church appointed a day of humiliation, to seek God 
in her behalf; and thereupon her trouble ceased . , . for which the church, 
instead of the day of humiliation, gave thanks for her deliverance. She came 
to meeting and went about her business as before." In April, ab. 1661, she 
and " goodwife Osgood " were summoned " to give their evidences concerning 
the said Martin . . . before the grand jury." Elizabeth Brown told her

husband that Susanna Martin said " she would make her the miserablest crea- 
ture for defaming her name at the court." About two months after this. Brown 
says, his wife "would not own him," " and from that time to this very day 
[30 years or more] she has been under a strange kind of distemper and frenzy, 
incapable of any rational action, though strong and healthy of body." On the 
strength of this and other evidence, Susanna Martin was convicted and execu- 
ted as a witch. [See " The New Puritan," pp. 173-5].

Hannah ; wife d. Sept., 1681, in Salem village. The mother of 
his younger chil. was Sarah, dau. of Thomasf Ruck and sister of 
Samuel Ruck, of Salem. Mr. Burroughs was adm. Roxbury chh. 
April 12, 1674 ; preached at Falmouth [Portland] in 1676, when 
the town was destroyed by Indians ; was preaching in Salisbury in 
1680 ; in Danvers [Salem village] in 1681 and '82 ; again at Fal- 
mouth in 1683; afterwards at Wells, 1690. He was tried at 
Salem for witchcraft, Aug. 3 or 5, and executed Aug. 19, 1692. 
One of the strongest points in the evidence against him was his 
great strength. [See Upham's " Salem Witchcraft," vol. 1, pp. 255- 
268, vol. 2, pp. 149-163, 296-304.] In the prob. office at

*Sv. thinks he was son of wid. Burrows, who came from Virginia to New 
Eng., and united with the Roxbury chh. 

Some of the statements respecting the chil. of Geo. Burroughs, taken from 
Sv., are based on tradition. He states that Geo. and Thomas Burroughs, of 
Newburyport in 1774, were descendants of Rev. Geo. BuiTOUghs. Upham 
speaks of descendants bearing the names Newman, Fowle, and Holbrook, as 
well as Fox, Thomas, and Burroughs. 

t W Ch. says dau. of John Ruck and wid. of Wm. Hathorn, Jr. 

t Charles, George, Jeremiah, and Josiah chose their uncle Sam. Ruck as 
guardian, in 1701. (3) George could not have been the son of Sarah Ruck.

®lb families of Salisbury? anb Hmesburi?. 



The undersigned has prepared a genealogy of the " Old Families of 
Salisbury and Amesbury, Mass., with some Related Families of New- 
bury, Haverhill, Ipswich, and Hampton." The volume which is now 
ready for publication brings the record down to about the year 1700, in- 
cluding the first three or four generations of the early settlers. It not only 
contains all births, marriages, and deaths to be found on the town records, 
but all Salisbury and Amesbury names, from all accessible sources, down to 
1700, arranged in alphabetical order. 

Nearly 5,000 persons are arranged in families, bearing about 235 sur- 
names. The following list includes only about one-half of these names, 
omitting most of those borne by the smallest number of persons. Names 
printed in small capitals represent the largest families included in the work.

Many of the above are not properly early Salisbury and Amesbury 
names, and may be omitted if it is found necessay to abridge the volume. 



The first portion of the work contains many ancient lists of names and 
other original documents, which are introductory to the genealogy proper. 
Specimen pages of both portions of the work are sent with this circular. 

The number of subscriptions received in response to the circular issued 
two years ago is so small that the author can not engage to print the whole 
at so great an expense to himself. It is, therefore, proposed to issue the 
work in parts, at $i.oo each. Part I will be issued as soon as a suffi- 
cient number of subscriptions have been received to pay the cost of printing 
that part. The number of pages included in it will depend upon the number 
of subscribers. 

If the whole work can not be printed without too great a loss, the manu- 
script will be deposited in the library of the New England Historic Genea- 
logical Society, in Boston. 

"Those who are interested in genealogy are beginning lo recognize the fact that 
they should reckon their descent from many other families as well as the male line 
whose surname they bear, the number doubling with each generation as one reckons 
backwards. Many persons belonging to old Amesbury and Salisbury families are 
descended from twenty to fifty of the first settlers of this country, and the number 
would be two or three times as great if the same names were not reached in different 
lines by inter-marriage. A genealogy of this kind should interest not only those who 
now live in Amesbury, Merrimac, Salisbury, and vicinity, but also great numbers of 
families which have migrated from those towns to New Hampshire, Maine, and all the 
New England states ; to New York and all the middle and western states, and even to 
Canada." — From Circular No. i. 

The undersigned has now on hand fifty copies of the " Genealogical His- 
tory of the Hoyt, Haight, and Hight Families," 686-|-xii pages, published 
in 187 1. They will, for the present, be sent to any address on receipt of 
$6.25 per copy by mail, or $6.00 by express. When these are disposed of, 
no more can be obtained.

[Circular No. 3. J 

Part One, 80 pages, of " The Old Families of Salisbury and Ames- 
bury, with some Related Families of Newbury, Haverhill, Ipswich and 
Hampton," has been printed, and is now ready for delivery. The first 
thirty pages contain lists of names, and original documents not before 
published. The other fifty pages contain the genealogical records of 
families whose surnames commence with A and B. The whole work, 
when completed, will make five parts, of about 80 pages each, with full 
index in the last part. 

It should be understood that the records are complete only for 
three or four generations of Salisbury and Amesbury families, down to 
the year 1700, so far as they can be obtained from accessible docu- 
ments. The work contains, however, many records of families living 
in other towns ; and many dates later than 1700, where they are needed 
to complete the history of a generation. 

The subscriptions so far received will pay less than one-half the 
cost of printing Part One, to say nothing of the time and money expended 
in collecting and classifying information and preparing the manuscript. 
The other parts will not be published unless subscriptions enough are re- 
ceived to pay the cost of printing. It will require 200 cash subscriptions. 
The portion already published shows fully the character of the work, 
which has now progressed so far that definite terms are inserted in 
the appended subscription blank. Most of the subscriptions already re- 
ceived are Kmited to Part One. All who are interested in these records, 
and are willing to aid in securing their publication, are requested to fill 
out the blank, and return it at once to the subscriber, even if they have 
before subscribed.

[Circular No. 4.J 

Part Two, pages 8i-i5o, of " The Old Families of Salisbury and 
Amesbury, with some Related Families of Newbury, Haverhill, Ipswich 
and Hampton," has been printed, and is now ready for delivery. It 
contains the genealogical records of the first three or four generations 
of famihes bearing the surnames Carr, Carter, Challis, Chase, 
Clement, Clough, Colby, Connor, Cottle, Currier, Davis, Dow, 
Downer, Eastman, Eaton, Elliot, Emery, Fellows, Fitts, and 
Flanders ; also briefer records of Clifford, Cobham, Codman, Coffin, 
Cole, Collins, Corliss, Cotton, Coy, Cusking, Hearing, Diamond, Dibbs, 
Dickison, Dove, Dudley, Dummer, Evans, Favor, Fawne, Fletcher, Darl- 
ing, Eastow, Gouge, Haffield, and other names, a few of which seem to 
have become extinct in this country before 1700. This part of the 
book will be found to express views different from most of those here- 
tofore published concerning Francis Dove, or Dow, the connection 
between the Baileys and the Emerys, the relationship of Elizabeth 
Hunt and Sarah Elliot to Jarrett Haddon, of Sarah Cottle-Hale to the 
Rolfes and Rings, etc. ; and it is hoped that there will be a careful 
examination of the proofs presented. 

Individual subscribers will confer a favor if they will remit pay- 
ment at once, at the rate of $1.00 for each part, and consider the 
receipt of the book by mail a sufficient acknowledgment. 

Only 500 sheets have been printed, and only 300 copies will be 
sent out in parts. When these are disposed of, no more can be 
obtained. 

The undersigned has still on hand a few copies of the " Genealogi- 
cal History of the Hoyt, Haight, and Hight Families," 686-{-xii pages, 
published in 1871. They will, for the present, be sent to any address 
on receipt of $6.25 per copy by mail, or $6.00 by express. When these 
are disposed of, no more can be obtained.

[Circular No. 5.] 

Part Three, pages 161-240, of "The Old Families of Salisbury 
and Amesbury, with some Related Families of Newbury, Haverhill, Ips- 
wich and Hampton," has been printed, and is now ready for delivery. 
It contains the genealogical records of the first three or four genera- 
tions of families bearing the surnames Foot, Fowler, French, George, 
Getchell, Gill, Gol'ld, Greeley, Greenleaf, Griffin, Hadley, 
Harvey, Healey, Heard, Heath, Hooke, Hoyt, Hubbard, Hunt, 
Huntington, Ilsley, Jameson, Jewell, Jones, Kelly, Kimball, 
Ladd, Lancaster, Long, Lowell, Macy, and March ; also briefer 
records of Frame, Freese, Fuller, Gage, Goldsmith, Goldwyer, Goodale, 
Goodwin, Gove, Green, Guile, Hackett, Haddon, Hadlock, Hall, Harrison, 
Hastings, Hauxworth, Haynes, Hewes, Holdred, Home, Joy, Kinsman, 
Large, Light, Mack, Mackrest, Martin, Gale, Graves, Groom, Groth, 
Hobbs, Hodges, Honchin, Honiwell, Huckley, Hulett, Hulton, Knowl- 
ton, Langden, and other names. 

It will be seen that this part includes the Macy family, whose flight 
to Nantucket forms the subject of Whittier's poem, '' The Exiles." Full 
lists of names connected with the purchase of that island are given. 
Susanna (North) Martin, who was executed as a witch in 1692, appears 
in this part, with her children. Her three daughters, Esther, Jane, and 
Abigail, had been married from twelve to twenty-two years in 1692 ; 
but these facts do not mar the beauty of the poet's picture of " Mabel," 
in " The Witch's Daughter." 

Individual subscribers will confer a favor if they will remit pay- 
ment at once, at the rate of $1.00 for each part, and consider the re- 
ceipt of the book by mail a sufficient acknowledgment. 

Only 500 sheets have been printed, and only 300 copies will be 
sent out in parts. When these are disposed of, no more can be ob- 
tained. 

The undersigned has still on hand a few copies of the " Genealogi-

* The original will of (4) Samuel,'' 1700, has a significant blank space between 
the mention of Robert' and that of William,^ enough for one or two lines across 
the page, more space than Robert's single line. James is not called " 5th son" 
where he is first mentioned, in the early part of the will. The person who 
wrote the will probably used that expression, based upon the will as it appears, 
James being the fifth son mentioned, with blank unfilled. Sam.'and his father 
were prob. both living in Bradford in 1700; but Sam.' was of Ames, in 1701.

(8) Benjamin^ Allen d. after 1720 and bef. 1729. A Benj. Allen served in 
King Philip's War, Dec, 1675, Aug., 1676. 

(9) Joseph^ Allen, Capt., "blacksmith," m. Rose ; was of S. in 1674, 

when he bought land in A.; rem. to Gloucester bef. 1705, where he lived 
many years. Will June 24, Oct. 20, 1724, mentions wife Rose; chil. Joseph^ 
"mariner," Rachel,^ Thomas,^ John,^ Anne,^ Eose^ (unm.), SamueP and Zerub- 
babeP (two youngest sons) ; grandchild Jeremiah. The Joseph who left wid. 
Bethia and chil., 16S2, but whose residence is not given, must belong to an- 
other family.

(33) John* Baenard, and note, p. 51. It was Capt. Jonathan who d. in 
1770, not John, as in one printed copy of inscription in A. cemetei'y. This 
makes date of birth [July 31, N. S., or July 20, O. S.] of (33) John incorrect. 
(42) Jonathan* may be the person; but, if so, there is an error of 1 y. 11 or 
12 d., somewhere, after allowing for change of style. Probably he was 68 
instead of 67 years old. The error of 11 days might have arisen from using 
July 19, N. S., for date of birth, and then, thinking it O. S., another 11 days 
might have been added, making it July 30.

the " English Ancestry of the Families of Batt and Byley," including the ped- 
igree of Nicholas Batt of Nb. Mr. Henry Byley m. Rebecca Swayne in Eng-

othy of Boston deed., and legacy left him by his grandmother Bayes of Martha's 
Vineyard, in March, 1696.

(9) Elizabeth' Blaisdkll may not have d. young. She may have been the 
wife of John Huntington ment. in will of Jabrbtt Haddon, 16S6-7. It has 
been assumed that she was Haddon's dau.; but neither the original will nor

any official record mentions the relationship. The language is, "Elizabeth 
wife of John Huntington of A., in addition to what she hath already had of 
me." She is ment. just after the Blaisdell grandchildren, and just before 
Haddon's dau., Mary Blaisdell, their mother. Elizabeth Huntington had a 
child b. in 1687, and was apparently too young to be Haddon's dau.

t Two or three pages of papers pertaining to the est. of Geo. Carr, his fam- 
ily, the island and ferry, are printed in Hist. Coll. Es. Inst., vol. 3, pp. 190-2. 
James and Richard were to have " the great ferry on both sides of the island 
and bridge." 

t He was in Salem village ab. 7 years, 1673-80; afterwards minister of Kill- 
ingworth, Ct. ; but a physician at Eoxbury when he died, a second wife Mary 
surviving him. F. L. Bailey, of Boston, gives the following chil. : Mary*, b. 
1673 in Nb.; d. 1683, in K.; James*, b. April 12, 1675, in Sm., d. 1715; John,* 
b. Sep. 29, 1676, d. 1677, in Sm.; John,* b. May 10, 1678, in Sm., d. ab. 1750, in

b. Sep. 3, d. Sep. 25, 1683, in K.; Joshua,* b. 1685. The Isaac, adm. est. 1743, 
p. 46, prob. was not (.30) Isaac,* if he d. 1711, as above. (28) Sarah,* bp. 1676, 
child of "Mr. James " Bailey, possibly should be James, instead of Sarah. 

§ John Carr is the one whom the aged Mrs. Bradbury, in 1692, was convicted 
of bevritching, so that he became crazed and prematurely died. The testi- 
mony of his brother, Wm. Carr, at the trial, shows that the proposed match of 
John Carr and Jemima True [not Jane True] was broken off by his father, and

* The Carr family seem to furnish the connection between Salem Village 
[Danvers] and Salisbury, in the witchcraft delusion of 1692. Mary Carr was 
the wife of the first Danvers minister. Her youngest sister, Ann, visited her 
and married Thomas Putnam, Jr., of Danvers. Both Ann Putnam and her 
husband were prominent in the witchcraft trials, — especially in that of Mrs. 
Bradbury, where other Carrs testified,— and both died in 1699. Their daughter 
Ann was one of the most active of the "afflicted children," or "accusing 
girls." She never married, and, when she was received to communion, in 1706, 
made a confession which is printed in TJpham's " Salem Witchcraft," vol. 2, p. 
510. Richard Carr and James Carr testified against Mrs. Bradbury; but Wil- 
liam Carr testified in her favor. [Upham, vol. 2, pp. 229-237.]

CHALLIS FAMILY. 89 

1 PHiLipi* Challis, Lieut.,! [Challice or Chellis], of 
Salisbury and Amesbury, " planter," b. ab. 1617 ; received land in 
the "first division," in 1640 and '44 ; was earlier at Ipswich, 
where he had house lot in 1637. His name is on most of the 
early S. and A. lists ; rep. in 1662.J An original settler of Ames- 
bury, where he reed, land in 1654, '58, '59 and later, " children's 
land " for his son in 1659, and a " township " for one of his sons 
in 1660 ; but he seems to have been a member of the S. chh. in 
1677, as was his wid. in 1687. He m. ab. 1652,§ Maey^ Sakgent 
( William^') ; d. in A. ab. 1681 ; inv. est. presented April 22, 1691.

* He was called either " Philip Challis "or " Philip Watson Challis." His 
own signature was " Philip Challis " in 1671, and his name was thus given in 
deeds, 1650, '53, '59, '69, '73, etc. ; but "Philip Watson Challis" was used in 
1680. [See p. 23.] In the record of births, both forms are used. His widow 
styled herself "Mary Challis, widow of Lieut. Philip Watson Challis," in 1681 
and 1683, " administratrix by order of the court." She sometimes apparently 
used " Watson-Challis " as a surname. In a deed, 1688, we find " Mary Challis 
alias Watson Challis, wid. and adm. est. Philip Challis, alias Watson Challis; 
and William Challis, alias Watson Challis, eldest son and heir of said Philip 
Watson Challis, both of A." Also "William Challis, alias Watson Challis," in 
1693. 

t He was chosen Lieut, of the foot company of S. in 1658, as certified by 
Serg. Hoyt and Serg. Stephens, in document in Mass. Archives. In June, 1680, 
he was discharged from the " foot company " of S., and ap. " leftenant to the 
military company at A." 

t When the inhabitants of Salisbury, Hampton, Newbury, Haverhill, and 
Andover, petitioned the General Court to revoke the sentence against Robert 
Pike, the Court resented the matter so deeply that most of the signers apolo- 
gized. Samuel Hall, Philip Challis, Joseph Fletcher, Andrew Greeley, and 
George Martin, of Sails.; John Emery, Sen., of Nb., and nine others, who in- 
sisted on the right of petition, had "not given satisfaction," and were, in 1651, 
required to give bonds and "answers for their offense before the County 
Courts." [" The New Puritan " prints "Hollis" and " Morton," which are 
evidently mistakes, and doubtless should be Hall and Martin, as here given.] 

§ This may have been a second mar., but we have no record of another wife 
or chil. Richard Goodale, Sen., ment. his " bro." Philip Challis in 1666. 

II (10) Philip may be the same as (5), b. 1658; but most of the records can 
be better harmonized by supposing that there were two Philips of that gener-

* Her eldest living son, Sam.Colby, was adm.est. In the record of settlement, 
1697 and 1700, is a list, nearly complete, of her children and grandchildren. 
She gave "her son, Thomas Whitridge," some property in her lifetime (prob. 
step-son). 

t Sv. Says there were 4 chil. older than Isaac ; but there were only 7 chil. in 
1663. 

t (2) John" Colby entered a suit against the town of Salisbury, in the Nk. 
Co. Court, claiming that he was possessor of the estate of Mr. Samuel Groom 
in S., purchased by his father, Anthony Colby, deed. ; and that he (John") was 
entitled to a townsman's rights on account of Groom. As John" had been ad- 
mitted a townsman 8 or 10 years before, the case was decided in favor of the 
town, Oct., 1663.

* It is certain from deeds that Sarah Osgood, b. 1652-8, was in 1700 and 
1708 wife of (10) John' Colby, and that she was dead in 1716. The only doubt 
is whether Sarah Eldridge and Sarah Osgood were the same person. The 
records may be reconciled in three ways : 1. Perhaps Eldridge should read 

Osgood. 2. Perhaps Sarah Osgood m. 1st, Eldridge, of whom we have no 

other record, and 2d, John Colby. 3. The two may be distinct persons, as 
given above, which seems most probable, though we have no trace of the fam- 
ily of Sarah Eldridge. Wm. and Anne Eldred, or Eldredge, of Yarmouth, had 
dau. Sarah b. Oct. 10, 1650; but she was 6 yrs. older than John Colby, and we 
know of no intercourse between Sails, and Yarmouth. There was a John El- 
dred of Hampton in 1640, who apparently soon died or moved away.

* John Cole, aged 40, came in the " Confidence " with John Sanders, Sarah 
Sanders, John Eoaff [Rolfe], Wm. Cottle, Roger Easman, Robert King [Ring], 
and Thomas Whittle [Whittier]. [G. R., 1860, pp. 334-5.] Sarah Sanders, who 
m. Maj. Robert Pike, was doubtless the sister of John Sanders (not wife), and 
niece of John Cole. 

t In a deposition of John Cole, 1653 or '4, about the drowning and property 
of Anthony Sadler, he states that some one said wid. Sadler would make a 
good wife for him. Cole was, therefore, unmarried, 1650-4, and perhaps never 
married. 

t In a deed, 1703, Maj. Pike spoke of " my uncle John Cole, of S., deed." 
Cole was bro. of the mother of Pike's first wife. 

§ Parentage unknown. Wm. Cole, of Hm,, husband of Eunice Cole, the 
reputed witch, d. in 1662, aged 88[D Hm] ; but his will mentions no chil., bro., 
or sister. There were also Richard, Abraham, and Isaac Cole in Hm. and Ex- 
eter, 1642-1670 ; but we have found no son Philip.

as much so as that Ezra was son of Wm.

27 IV "William,^ b. Nov. 23, 1668[Nb], posthumous; liv. 1688. 

* Documents at Salem prove that when John Eolfe of Sails, and Nb. came 
to this country, he left a dau. in Eng., who was wife of Kichard Ring of Marl- 
borough, Wilts. Rolfe's will, 1663-4, 2d item, refers to his dau. Hester San- 
ders, wife of John Sanders and her ohil. ; 3d, to Sarah Cottell, wife of William 
Cottell and her two children, Sarah C. and Ann C. [the only ones then bom], 
to be improved by Wm. Cottl for their benefit, "in addition to what I have 
given her before;" 4th, to four Ring grandchil. then liv. in Eng. The will of 
Robert Ring, 1688, gave property to " Will. Cottle, son to Sarah, now wife of 
John Hale of Nb., and Joanna, dau. to said Sarah." 

It has been assumed that Sarah Cottle was dau. of John Rolfe; but her age 
and other circumstances render it much more probable that she was his grand- 
dau. If she was the Sarah Hale, aged 33, who testified in the Caleb Powell 
case, in 1679-80[CNb], she was b. ab. 1646 (or possibly a little earlier, as that 
would make her only 16 on the birth of her first child). The " Hale Geneal- 
ogy," 1889, says she was prob. b. 1636. She was, therefore, 10 to 2© years 
younger than her husband. She was, also, probably the " Goody Hale " named 
in Wm. Morse's evidence in his wife's case, 1681[C Nb]. 

In view of all these facts, we venture to suggest that she may have been 
Sarah Ring, born in Eng., perhaps after the Rolfes came to this country, that 
Robert Ring (perhaps her uncle) brought the child over when he came to 
this country the second time, ab. 1652, where she was brought up in either the 
Rolfe-Sanders family or the Ring family. Her mother was evidently dead in 
1663, and perhaps d. soon after her birth. C Nb. gives John Hale's third wife, 
Sarah Symonda; but the record is without date, and evidently not of&cial. It 
has been suggested that she might have mar. and bur. a Symonds in the brief 
interval between 1668 and 1673; but it seems more probable that the Symonds 
story is an error, arising from the fact that a step-daughter of Deputy Gov. 
Samuel Symonds m. another John Hale. 

t By John Hale she had 3 chil. : Joseph, b. Nov. 24, 1674, m. Mary Moody, 
1699; Benj., b. Aug. 11, 1676, d. Aug. 31, 1677; and Moses, b. July 10, 1678, m. 
twice. 

t One Nb. record says Wm. Titcomb m. Sarah, another says Ann Cottle. 
Some or all the chil., b. 1684-1702, are given as chil. of Ann. Possibly he m. 
both sisters.

former 13, the latter 15 jvs. old ; and their sister Mary, b. ab. 1612, 
mar. John Lake of Boston. Savage locates Richard Coy at Boston 

some years before and after 1650 ; gives his wife as Martha ; 

was of Brookfield in 1673 ; killed there by Indians, Aug. 2, 1675.

1676[A Nk S], Joanna Pindor [wid. of Valentine® Rowell and 
of Wm.* Sakgent]. He reed, land in S. in 1641 and '2 ; a com- 
moner and taxed in 1650. His name heads one list of the first 
commoners of Ames., 1654-5, where he was town clerk after Macy, 
and received land in 1654, '58, '59, '62, '64, and '68. He and 
Macy were authorized to build a saw mill in 1656, and he 
owned a saw mill right in 1675. In the seating of the Ames, 
meeting house, 1667, his name stands first, " to set at the tabell ;" 
but he was apparently a member of the S. chh. in 1677[p. 20]. 
He was evidently one of the most prominent men in the new 
town.* [M. Ames., pp. 108, 114.] Wife Ann d. after 1662, 



• Richard Currier's name appears very frequently on the records of deeds, 
for he owned much real estate during his life. One deed of his, conveying 
real estate, was written in 1685, acknowledged the day of his death, and not 
recorded till 1709. His last days were spent at the house of his wife's son, 
Philip Eowell. So thoroughly had he given away his property, that there was 
no administration of his estate till about 25 years after his death. His grand- 
son, Eichard Currier, was ap. adm. Nov. 6, 1710; bond dated April 1, 1711; 
inv. and aoct. March 26 and 28, 1712. Only one lot of land and his " common 
right" in Amesbury are entered. 

A Richard Currier, prob. Rich.', though he was then nearly 60 yrs. old, 
was in the Narragansett war. His descendants drew land in Narragansett 
township No. 1, now Buxton, York Co., Me., on his original right, as a Nar. 
soldier. Feb., 1675, the constables of Marlboro', Sudbury, etc., were to care 
for billeting the Plymouth forces passing through the tovras ; and the consta- 
bles of Lynn, etc., were to care for billeting the three Norfolk soldiers, Jno. 
Dickison, Richard Currier, and Tho. Mudgett for Abram Morrill, till they 
come to Salis. their home. [Mass. Archives.]

of A., sold to Wm. Osgood, Sen., 1683-4, bouse and land bought of John Hoyt, 
Jr., for the use of the ministry. 

* Brown and Savage incorrectly give "Richard Currier, Sen., d. May 17, 
1689." It was Richard Carr, Sen., of Salisbury, who died at that time, not 
Richard Currier of Amesbury. The latter was not called " Sen." 

t The resemblance of family names, residence, and other circumstances, 
have suggested to many that Samuel^ was either son or younger bro. of Rich- 
ardi ; but diligent search has so far brought to light no record which proves 
relationship. 

t St. is evidently wrong in giving a dar, S«rali who m. Sam. Fogg of Hm. 
The date given for m. Fogg ip the same as that for Foot. See D Hm. for Fogg 
family. 

§ The impression that there was a Richard, ^ son of Richard, ^ is based 
largely upon an error in copying Currier for Cdrr on the A. rec. [See p. 87. ] 
There is no mention or intimation of a Richard, Jr., in A. Possibly (101) Rich- 
ard of the Isles of Shoals may have been a son of Richard^ ; but there is no 
proof, and little probability, that such was the ease. 

II Will of Thomas Hardee, Sen., of "Merrimack near Haverill " [Bradford], 
Dec. 12, 1677; March 26, 1678, mentions wife; eldest son Thomas; other sons 
John, Joseph, William, and Jacob; son-in-law Win. Hutchins; "my daughter 
Mary and her children, besides what she has received." Thomas Hardy and 
wife Ann deeded land to dau. Mary, wife of Samuel Currier, in 1670.

* At Salem is inv. est. Thomas Davis of Hv., dated Oct. 30, 1683; Wm. Neffe 
adm., March 25, 1684, bond 1718. Adm. again granted to his great grandson, 
John Corliss of Hv., 1723, and another inv. 1728-9. Joanna Davis was therefore 
dan. of Thomas, not sister, as given in Corliss Genealogy. We do not know 
of any descendants of Joseph^. He seems to have had a house in Hv. in 1669.

t It is possible that in Ames., ab. 1700, (81) was John, Sen.; (23) and (97) 
John, Jr. ; and (93) John 3d; but it is by no means certain that they were the 
three Johns. If (81) John was not liv. in A. in 1709, then (97) may have been

* The earliest Baton grants of land in S. were to his father, John Eaton, 
Sen. The John Eaton, commoner of 1650, was not " Sen." In his will, John,^ 
Sen., gave to his son John" " all my living in Salis.," and some land in Hv. 

t He may have been in London in March, 1664-5, as John" Hall {JohiiO) 
wrote to his mother that he had then accidentally met there John Eaton, and 
said, " I can discerne the face of a N: E: man though he forget mine." Eaton 
told Hall the name of his "new brother" [Rev. John Hale], who lived in 
" Satto in N: E:" Hall quoted a saying of his " Late father Worcester," and 
seems to have sent the letter by Eaton. John^ Eaton, Sen., was living in 1665, 
but was probably too old to make the voyage to London, 

JThe presence of the name of (9) John' on the list of 1680, p. 22, indicates that 
he was b. bef. 1660. The S. records of births of this family from 1646 to 1663 
seem to be complete, and his name stands first in his father's will, in 1682. He 
was probably, the oldest son ; but the date of the birth of his youngest child 
[1710] indicates that he m., when forty years of age, a wife much younger than 
himself. He may have been away from S. in 1677-8, oath al. and fid., p. 21. 

§ Samuel was about "to go on a voyage" in 1683, His father's will, 1682, 
gave him house and land which John" had of his " sister Wells," also land in 
Haverhill. 

II A mistake in one of these dates.

*Johni speaks in his will of "my six children" and "grandchild Mary 
Emerson." As he calls Abraham Merrill (who m. his wife's dau.) his " son," 
Mary Emerson may have been the daughter of his wife's daughter Hannah, 
who married an Emerson. His wife had eight Webster children, who could 
not all have been included in the " six children." As he mentions only three 
chil. by name, Ebenezer, Jonathan, and John, besides Abram Merrill, the 
meaning of the expression "my six children " is not easy to determine, but 
we have given what seems the most probable interpretation. Ebenezar may 
have been the child of a 2d wife and Jonathan of a 3d.

Note. — (27) Joseph separated from (.32) Joseph, and (22) Timothy from (33) 
Timothy, mainly by real estate records. (32) Joseph and (33) Timothy appar- 
ently lived in the " mills division," near Powow Hill. 

* A Timothy, Sen., was soldier in 1703 in S., and a Timothy in 1710. 

t She prob. had a bro. Matthew " Herriman,'' Jr., and a sister Eliz. who m. 
Thomas Gordon of Exeter. 

t He was probably brother of William Fuller of Ipswich (1635) and Hamp- 
ton (1640), who d. in 1693, and seems to have left no chil. Dow states that 
William Fuller came from Eng. in 1635, in the "Abigail," aged 25 yrs., with 
John Fuller, 35 yrs. Other records of age also make Wm. b. ab. 1610, and John 
ab. 1620. 

The difEerent John Fullers have often been confounded. The John of Lynn, 
1644, rep. 1655 and '64[Sv], was doubtless a difEerent person from the one of 
Ip. A John of Lynn was rep. 1674-8. A John, Sen., of Lynn, will Sep., 1603;

3 II Jacob, I chil. of Isaac Green, bp. in S. June 7, 1691, as " grandchil- 

4 III Isaac, ' dren." 

* It would appear from the set. est. (1) Audrew,i that (23) Andrew^ was 
dead in 1734, without chil. Will of an Andrew of Salis., July 22, Feb., 1747-8; 
ment. wife Hannah and dau. Edith, wife of Francis Hook. This must be some 
other Andrew, prob. of the fourth generation. 

t An Isaac Green [aged 70?] d. May 12, 1716, bur. at Seabrook. [G. K. 1873, 
p. 60.] An Isaac^ Green (Henry^), of Hampton, doubtless the same, b. 1652,

m. Oct. 8, 1713[S], (52) Maky* Eaton of S. ; and another, isaac,^ b. Dec. 28, 
1695[D Hm]. Possibly this family may be the same as the one of Salis. ; but if 
so, Isaac^ had two wives named Mary, the first one dying soon after the birth 
of Abigail; and two sons Isaac, the iirst one dying bef. 1695. There were also 
Greens in Hv. 1672 and later. 

A Benjamin Green and wife Ruth of S., 1729; adm. est. Nov. 15, 1732.

daine, Wilson) Hill. He was head of the militia under Gerrish in 
1644 ; rem. to Boston ab. 1650 ; d. March 24, 1670-1. Will Dec,

11 X JoHN,2 b. ab. 1632; m. Sep. 26, 1665, Hannah Veazie. [Prob. son of 

Edmund,! no proof seen.] 

4 Enoch^ Grbbnleaf QHdmund^), "dyer," b. ab. 1618; 
reed, land in Salisbury in the " first division," and in 1640, but 
his name is not on the S. lists of 1650 and later. It is said that 
he was a lieut. under Cromwell ; but he was of Maiden in 1665, 
rem. to Boston. He had estate in Maiden, given him by his father, 

in 1663. He m. Mary ; both were living in Boston, 1683. 

Children : 

12 I Enoch,8 b. ab. 1647; m. 1st, Oct. 20, 1675, Bethia Woodman; 2d, Aug. 

29, 1679, Catherine Truesdale. -f- 

13 II Mart,3 b. ; [m. March 5, 1669[Nb], John WELLSJ.t 

* The " Greenleaf Genealogy" gives his baptism Jan. 2, 1574. This would 
make him nearly 60 years old when his youngest child was born, 70 when he 
was at the head of the militia, and 97 at his death. Another authority gives 
his birth about 1590, which seems more probable. 

t The Greenleaf Gen. gives a Mary dau. of Enoch," with no further account 
of her; but supposes that the Mary who m. John Wells was dau. of Edmund.^ 
The above arrangement seems to us more probable. 

Note. — For a full account of the Greenleafs, see " Genealogy of the Green- 
leaf Family," by James E. Greenleaf, Boston, 1896, pp. 553. Some corrections 
should be made in the earlier generations. For instance, Enoch Greenleaf was 
in Salisbury, Mass. [not Conn.] in 1639 and '40; but was not there in 1650. So 
far as appears from our records, he may have been in England at the latter 
date.

• In 1714, Benj. Smith, of Taunton, claimed this land in behalf of his wife 
Sarah, nearest of kin to Margaret (Hackett) Smith. Will of 1686 not found. 

A Mary Haocat was dead in 1716, leaving daus. Mary, Sarah, and Eebecca 
Haccat, and sisters Rachel Berry of Boston, and others. They were daus. of 
Thomas Atkins, of Boston, but formerly inhabitant and owner of land at Small 
Point near Sagadahock. A John Hacket was of Boston, 1681-8. 

t In 1664, Wm. Hackett had a case in Nk. Co. court against Robert Jones. 
Capt. Wm. Hackett of S. commanded the sloop "Indeavour" of S. in 1671; 
was tried in New Jersey for not paying duty there, after having paid in New 
York, and his sloop was declared forfeited. [G. R., 1879, p. 10.] 

William Hackett and his son worked on a vessel built at Haverhill in 1678, 
for Nicholas Page of Boston. No son ment. in his will was old enough to re- 
ceive wages in 1678, and John was then only 9 yrs. old, if living. This is one 
reason for supposing that Sarah Barnard may have been a second wife. 

t We have no positive proof that Rebecca was dau. of Wm. ; but her birth 
and that of Katherine prob. came in the break in the A. rec. Malachi, son of 
Rebecca Hacket, b. March 9, 1691 [S]. Hannah Hacket, adult, bp. Aug. 30,

but d. Feb. 8, 1699, chiefly of her wounds bleeding. 

t There may have been other children of Benj.^ There was a Benj. Jr. 
mentioned in Dover in 1693-4. Benj.^ seems to have rem. to Sails, about that 
time, but he had property in Dover up to the time of his death. The Benj. 
who was killed Aug. 29, 1723, could not have been any one of these, as all three 
were dead in 1710. There is no positive proof that the above arrangement is 
correct, but it seems to be the only possible one, if Benj.' was a grandson of 
John.i If true, both Benj.'^ and Benj.' must have mar. young. 

t This may be the James of Dover who m. Deborah and had chil. b.

* Age taken from deposition in the North will case, Supreme Court files, 
Boston, 1671-4. It does not seem probable that he was nearly related to the 
Ipswich Hubbards. Possibly he may have been a brother of the A. minister, 
though we find no Richard ment. among the sons of Rev. Peter Hobart or 
Hubbard [p. 17]. 

t The town of Amesbury, in 1667, granted to [Richard?] Hubbard a "com- 
mon right when he comes to live among us;" but he seems to have settled in 
S. bef. that date. As this is nearly the time of Rev. Mr. Hubberd's service in 
A., it may possibly refer to him [p. 17]. Henry Wheeler of S. deeded house 
and land in S. to Richard Hubbard, 1684. Richard Hubbard of Boston deeded 
property in S. to Abigail Wheeler of Boston, wid. of Henry Wheeler, in 1696. 
He could not, however, have been long a resident of Boston.

t (16) Edward Hunt of A . must have been born as early as 1645-55, and ap- 
parently could not have been of the Concord-Ipswich branch. He may have

1 Thomas^ Macy [or Macee], b. ab. 1608, "planter," 
"clothier," or "merchant," came from Chilmark, Eng., to Newbury, 
Mass., but rem. to Salisbury, where he reed, land in 1639, '40, and 
'42; commoner and taxed 1650; rep. 1654; etc. He was one of 
the original commoners and clerk of Amesbury, 1654-9 ; reed, land 
there 1652, '4 and '8 ; but rem. to Nantucket in 1659, the subject 
of Whittier's poem, " The Exiles."* He m. Sarah Hopcott, who 
d. in 1706, aged 94. He d. April 19, 1682. [See pp. 103, 118.] 

He was prosecuted and fined for allowing four Friends on a 
journey to take shelter in his house about three quarters of an 
hour one rainy day, in 1659, as his own letter to the court in- 
forms us. It is worthy of note that his grandson and many others 
of his descendants became Friends. Like Roger Williams, he fled 
from persecution in Massachusetts. His family were the first 
white settlers in Nantucket, then under the jurisdiction of New 
York. Edward Starbuck and Isaac Coleman, a lad 12 years old, 
accompanied them.f Children : 



* For full particulars respecting the Macy family, see " G-enealogy of the 
Macy Family," 1868, pp. 457. The author states that Thomas Macy "was of 
the Baptist persuasion, and would frequently on the Sabbath exhort the peo- 
ple," in Amesbury. Pike's "New Puritan" also states that " both he and 
Peasley were at that time members of a Baptist sect in Sails." We have failed 
to find on the Ames, records any proof that they were Baptists. Joseph Peas- 
ley and Thomas Macy were leaders in the determination of the Ames, people 
not to attend meeting in Sails., but to hold one of their own in the new town. 

t Thomas Mayhew, of Martha's Vineyard, deeded nineteen-twentieths of 
the island of Nantucket, in July, 1659, to Tristram Coffin, Thomas Macy, 
Christopher Hussey, Richard Swayne, Thomas Barnard, Peter Coffin, Stephen 
Greenleaf, John Swayne, and William Pile, Mayhew reserving a share for him- 
self, thus making the ten proprietors. At a meeting of the proprietors held at 
Salisbury, Sep. 2, 1659, the ten owners were authorized to admit ten partners. 
Thomas Mayhew took John Smith, Tristram Coffin took Nathaniel Starbuck, 
Thomas Macy took Edward Starbuck, Christopher Hussey took Robert Pike, 
Thomas Barnard took Robert Barnard, Peter Coffin took James Coffin, Stephen 
Greenleaf took Tristram Coffin, Jr., Richard Swain took Thomas Look, John 
Swain took Thomas Coleman, and William Pile sold his whole tenth to Rich- 
ard Swain in 1663. The Indian deed of 1671 was to " Tristram Coffin, Thomas 
Macy, Richard Swayne, Thomas Bernard, John Swayne, Mr. Thomas Mayhew,

William Pile." From Mass. Hist. Soc. Coll., vol. 3, p. 155, and the " Macy 
Family.'' The accounts differ in several particulars. The date Sep., 1659, is 
Feb., 1659, in the latter. The former states that Edward Starbuck and James 
Coffin came to Nantucket from Martha's Vineyard.

t There were Martins in Ipswich, Andover, Dover, and Portsmouth, before 
1700; but we have not found them related to the Amesbury family. 

t According to a deposition of Robert Pike, in 1695, " George Martine came 
over a servant to Mr. Sam. Winsley, about the time of the beginning of the 
town of Salisbury, then called Colchester [1639], and was no commoner in 
Salisbury .... till he bought John Cole's first wright . . . . , in the

[one summer]. Cole returned to Salisbury, and was admitted a townsman 
and commoner in 1650; so that Martin was commoner by Cole's first right, 
and Cole by his own second right. [Supreme Court Files, Boston.] 

* She was arrested by a warrant dated April 30, examined May 20, 1692. 
One charge against her was that she went from A. to Nb. afoot, in a " dirty 
season," without getting her clothing wet. She is described as "a short, 
active woman, wearing a hood and scarf, plump and well developed in her 
figure, of remarkable personal neatness ;" one who " scorned to be drabbled ;" 
" a strong minded woman, as her examination shows." 

If the testimony of Wm. Brown [p. 75] is conclusive as to date, she was ac- 
cused of witchcraft as early as 1660. In April, 1669, suit of Geo. Martyn 
against William Sargent, for slander, in saying said Martyn' s wife was a witch, 
the jury found for the defendant, but the court " concurred not with the 
jury.'' Geo. Martyn gave bond that his wife Susanna should appear at the 
next court to answer to the charge concerning suspicion of witchcraft. In Oct., 
1669, she was required to acknowledge in open court that she wronged Chris- 
topher Bartlett, in charging him with lying and stealing. [Nk. Co. Rec] 

t The record "d. Dec. 11, 1662[S]," is prob. an error. Wm. gave his age as 
63 in March, 1725-6. Of course (9) Wm. may have d. the day of his birth; but 
if so, a second Wm. was b. ab. 1663.

t The house of William Morse -was noted for the disturbances there in 1679, 
attributed to witchcraft. His wife Elizabeth was tried and convicted of witch- 
craft in 1680, but not executed, through "the goodness of the honored Gov- 
ernor," 1681. [SeeUpham's "Salem Witchcraft," vol. 1, pp. 438-453; alsoCNb. 
and Morse Memorial.]

t He may possibly have belonged to the Morse family, but apparently was

proof that such was the case. 

t Geo. Goldwyer of Salis. and wife Martha, March, 1674-5, deeded rights 
" bought of my father-in-law Joseph Moys of Salis." A deed of Martha Pike, 
in 1700, ment. her sister Greeley and her " cousin " Ephraim Winsley, Sr. 

§ We have found no proof, but the name Moyce, that Hannah Moyce was 
dau. of Joseph. 

II Mudget d. May, 1663[S]. Name also spelled Mugat, Muggitt, Mug- 

hitt, on the records. The name Mudgett is one of the first in the early his- 
tory of Brentwood, N. H. There were Madgetts in Gloucester ab. 1725-35. 

t Papers are on record showing arbitration between Thomas Mudgett and 
Thomas Barnard respecting certain mills on the Powow, 1688 to 1697, when 
Thomas Mudgett seems to have sold two-thirds of a corn-mill or grist-mill, 
two-thirds of a fulling-mill, and one-half of a saw-mill.

This is an error, as his residence is given as Salisbury, in the will itself. 

t From papers (55 in all) on Supreme Court Files, Boston, in case of Geo. 
Martyn and wife Susanna against Nathaniel Winsley, relating to wills of Rich- 
ard North and wife, it appears that Ann Oldham did not come " to this land" 
till 1653 or '4, and that she married Bates in July, 1657; hence could not be 
called Ann Bates in will of 1648. Susanna Martin and Mary Jones were the 
only living children of Richard North in 1672 and '74.

He also reed, land in A. in 1659 and '62, and was a " townsman " 
of A. in 1660, a " commoner " of A. in 1667-8 ; he and " Good- 
wife Osgood " had seats in the A. meeting house in 1667 ; but he 
was a " householder " of S. in 1677. His name appears among 
both the S. and A. names in 1680. 

By the original articles of agreement [M. Ames., p. 51], in 
1654, he and his family were to have certain rights in the new 
town, though residing in the old. His miU on the Powow river, 
though on the S. side, brought him into close relations with the

ferent branches of the family maybe found in the " Osgood Genealogy," 1894. 
See also " The Fowler Family," pp. 11-15. 

t In 1640 he built a bam in Wo. for John Spencer. In 1641 he was granted 
land in S., on condition that he build a saw-mill on the Powow river. A saw- 
mill, situated on " Pawwans river," in Sails., near to a corn-mill, was in pos- 
session of Wm. Osgood, Philip Challis, Wm. Barnes, and Anthony Colby, in 
1658. [Recorded 1679.] Each of the four was to use the mill a week in turn. 
Colby admitted Samuel Worcester to a share of his fourth. " Osgood's Mill," 
Salis., was ment in 1682. 

William Osgood testified against John Godfrey, tried for witchcraft, 1658-9, 
occurrence running back to 1640. [Upham, vol. 1, pp. 432-3.] " Goodwife Os- 
good" was summoned to give evidence concerning Susanna Martin in 1661.

* In the division of the estate of John^ Page in 1723, this name appears at 
Salem on the probate records as "Savernes," "Saverance," or "Severance." 
This is evidently an attempt to represent " Siphorus," by those who knew the 
name only by sound. John^ had been dead 36 years, and his son Onesiphorus, 
who had resided in a different town from the other members of the family, 
had been dead 17 years. Most, if not all, the children of John^ were dead in 
1723. (64)Joseph8 Dow, called Onesiphorus Page, his "uncle" when he 
chose him as guardian in 1686. The name Severance Page is found only on 
the probate records of 1723. [See " Sefrus," p. 26.]

» Judith Page is the one first named among the heirs of Joseph Sen. in 
1707, and of Ebenezer in 1708. She is also among the heirs of Joseph Jr. in 
1706-7. She is ment. in will of (1) Samubli Guile in 1683-4. She could not 
have been born after Ebenezer, as he was born after the death of his father. 
The entry against her name on the Hv. rec, " d. April 28, 1672[Hv]," is un- 
doubtedly an error. It is also given as the date of her mother's death.

restrain Peasley and Macy of Ames, from preaching in the absence of a min- 
ister. He declared " that those members who had voted for it had violated 
their oaths as freemen; that their act was against the liberty of the country, 
both civil and ecclesiastical, and that he stood ready to make his declaration 
good." For this he was tried, convicted, fined, and disfranchised, by the Gen- 
eral Court. The punishment inflicted on Lieut. Pike caused petitions to be 
signed by many persons in the surrounding towns, asking that the sentence be 
revoked. This offended the Court still more, and the signers were called upon 
to give "a reason of their unjust request." In Oct., 1654, out of the whole 
number of signers, about one-fifth, or fifteen persons, only, were reported 
" who have not given satisfaction," and therefore insisted upon the right of 
petition [p. 89], Robert Pike's fine was paid, and in Oct., 1657, his disfran-

John Wheelwright, and was excommunicated from the S. chh. ; but was rein-

In 1692 he appeared in the third great controversy of his life, in opposition 
to the witchcraft delusion.

William Pile, [of Salisbury, 1659?], according to Savage, 
removed to Nantucket, thence to Dover. He was one of the pur- 
chasers of that island in 1659, and was of Dover when he sold 
premises in Nantucket to Richard Swain, July 2, 1663. We have 
found no other authority but Savage for his being a resident of 
Salisbury.^ 

Abel Pillsbuey was a member of the Amesbury " training band " in 1680. 
He was doubtless the son of Wm. and Dorothy Pillsbury of Newbury, b. ab. 
1652. Chil. recorded at Nb. b. 1679-'94[CNb]. He prob. lived in A. but a 
short time.

Moses,! m. Jennet [wid. of Robert Starkweather]. He was 

* Given Joseph on town rec. of birth; Solomon on chh. rec. of bp. 

t Hugh Pike and wife Mary sold laud in S. to John Jewell, Sam. Jewell and 
Joseph Jewell, all of A., In 1710. Wife Mary liv. 1717, deed. Parentage of 
Hugh Pike not ascertained. 

X He was, however, witness to a deed of Edward Cottle, Feb. 18, 1658, with 
Tho. Bradbury, Richard Ormsby, and Richard Goodale, all of them Sails, men. 
His being one of the purchasers of Nantucket in 1659 does not prove his res- 
idence in either Salisbury or Nantucket, as some of the ten were not Salisbury 
men, and some did not remove to Nantucket. His name is the only one of the 
original ten which does not appear on the Indian deed of 1671. He may have 
been a resident of Dover all along. [See p. 236.]

Note. — Among the deeds at Salem is a document, dated Oct. 22, 1668, 
which states that Richard Ring of Marlborough, Wilts, Old Eng., and his chil- 
dren, namely, Joseph Ring, Isaac Ring, his sons ; and Elizabeth Shropshire, 
wid., and Hester Ring, his daus., claimed debts due them in New England; 
and Joseph Ring, the bearer, was to travel thither for himself, his father, bro. 
and sisters. John Rolfe willed them property in 1664. 

• Rev. Chr. Wordsworth writes that he finds only this entry about Richard 
Ring on the register of St. Peter's. 

t He was prob. the Robert " King," aged 24, who came as servant of John 
Sanders, with John Cole, Roger Eastman, William Cottle, John "Roaff " and 
others, in the " Confidence," 1638. [G. R. 1860, p. 335.] 

} Robert Ring returned to England and made Robert Pike his agent by a 
writing bearing date 1643. He was away about 8 years, and stated that he 
could not return to America by reason of the wars in England. His name is 
not on the list of commoners in 1650; but he was taxed in 1650 and 1652, 
signed the agreement of 1654, and reed, land that year. After his return to 
Salis. he endeavored to regain his common right and that of John Fuller, 
which he owned. The town claimed that, on account of his absence, land 
Jiad been given to those who bought his first lots. Various papers relating to 
the case, bearing date from 1658 to 1665, are in the Norfolk Co. records, the 
Mass. Archives, and Supreme Court Files, Boston. In one of them he states 
that he " sent over a servant who is now a useful man in the town and admit- 
ted a townsman." 

§ In it he gave property to " Will Cottle, son to Sarah, now wife of John 
Hale of Nb., and Joanna, dau. to said Sarah;" also to Rev. Thomas Wells and 
his son Titus; in addition to his children and grandchildren, named as such.

* Henry True, either father or son, was at one time town clerk of Salis. On 
the Supreme Court Files, Boston, is a certificate signed by him, bearing date 
Sep., 1640; but it was copied from "an old book in my hands," the "records 
of Colchester, commonly called Salisbury; " hence the copy was made after 
1640, perhaps many years later. It seems probable that the son, Capt. Henry,* 
was the one who signed the document, as he was clerk just before 1700.

but was living in the town of Wells in Dec, 1669, as a deed to his

tery and Isle of Shoals in 1670. He was the first settled minister 
of the first chh. in A., haying been settled in 1672 or '3 ; though 
preaching had been enjoyed in the " new town " for ten or twenty 
years before that time. [See pp. 17, 18.]* For the next half

added. In 1830, the names of those who had reod. honorary and ad eundem

placed at the head of the list, under the year 1703. He may have been, at one

* The record at Ip. does not give the name of the mother, is simply son of

sons whose names are unknown. Sarah, dau. of Thomas, b. Aug. 27, 1668[Ip], 
could not have been dau. of Rev. Thomas by wife Mary. [See (34) Thomas.] 

t The record of death says son of " Mr. John Wells," of A., undoubtedly an

* Probably the one who came in the "Confidence" from Southampton in

t The will of John' Rolfe, 1664 [p. 300], called John" and Richard" Whittier 
"my sister's sons." G. R. 1882, p. 144, states that Thomas^ Whittier mar. a 
sister of Henry^ and John' Rolfe. Ruth Green appears on the Hv. records. It 
is not an original entry of marriage, however, and no date is given. The 
record was made about 1665. On the Sails, rec. Mary, b. 1647, is dau. of 
Thomas and Ruth. The suggestion has been made that Ruth may have been 
a half sister of the Rolfes, or a wid. when she mar. Whittier, or possibly a sis- 
ter of John Rolfe's wife. Thomas Whittier was, however, more than 30 yrs. 
younger than John Rolfe.

* The record of mar. gives wife's name as Sarah, which is undoubtedly a 
clerical error. The publishment, June 2, 1702, reads Mary, and the mother 
of the children is in all cases Mary, from 1703 down. This accords also with 
Woodman and Salisbury wills.

The " Bigelow Genealogy" gives supposed English ancestors of John Biglo 

of Watertown, with spellings " Baguley " and " Beagely." We find no Orlando 

among them; but the name is more like Bagley than Bigelow. Possibly the 

two names have a common origin.

CONCLUSION. 

The compiler of this volume desires to express his satisfaction 
that he has been able to complete, in accordance with the original 
plan, the work to which he has given so much time for several 
years. The publication would have been less full and complete 
had not assistance been rendered by various persons. Thanks are 
especially due to Mr. Charles A. Hoyt of IS'ew York City and Mr. 
Henry P. Upham of St. Paul, for valuable pecuniary aid ; also to 
Mr. Wm. H. Greenleaf, town clerk of Salisbury, Mr. J. W. Gale 
of Amesbury, Mrs. Ellen M. Little of Newbury, and Mr. W. W. 
Roberts, city clerk of Haverhill, for much assistance in searching 
the records of their respective towns, in order to clear up doubtful 
points and complete the records of particular families. Valuable 
assistance has also been rendered by Miss Elizabeth P. JS'ourse, 
Probate Office, Salem, Mass. 

Two important errors have been the result of accepting as true, 
without verification from original records, the statements made in 
Coffin's History of Newbury and Chase's History of Haverhill. 
Each mistake arises from confounding two persons of about the 

* Our notes of Nb. rec. give both named Joshua, but the first must be 
Joseph, as shown by deed, and will, and age at death.

same age, bearing the same name. These errors have been cor- 
rected on pages 386, 387, and slips have also been prepared for 
insertion at pages 46 and 78, where the errors occur. A third 
error is apparently the result of some person's misreading the 
expression, ' ' daughter Sarah I reckon she had her full portion 
upon her marriage," in the will of Isaac Estey, Sen., of Topsfield, 
1709-'ll, and calling it " Sarah Ireland," etc., as given on page 
175. It is almost impossible to distinguish Merrill from Morrill, 
and Bayley from Bagley on the old records. Three such errors 
have been corrected on the preceding pages, and other mistakes 
will doubtless be found, notwithstanding the care that has been 
exercised to secure accuracy. Different spellings of the same name 
are the result of following those found on the original records. 

An expression of doubt, such as "prob." or "?," has been 
used in all cases where perfectly satisfactory proof has not been 
found. Its use does not generally mean probably wrong. In 
most cases, such statements will be found to be correct. Quite a 
number have already been proved to be so, as will appear from 
the preceding pages of minor corrections. The interrogation 
point [ ? ] is intended to apply only to the part included within 
the brackets or parentheses. 

In general, those dates followed by brackets giving the town 
records from which they are taken are more likely to be accurate 
than those without such authority specified, except, of course, pro- 
bate records, which are presumably accurate. More care has been 
taken with the early dates ; those later than 1700 have sometimes 
been taken from other sources than original records. The defi- 
ciencies which are the result of the loss of the earliest records of 
Amesbury have been already explained. [Pp. 27-8.] 

It will be noticed that the surnames of the wives of the earlier 
generations are often wanting. Some are herein printed for the first 
time, and it is hoped that other blanks may yet be filled by a study 
of early original documents, which may yet be found, either in this 
country or in England. No such lists of the names of women are 
available as are printed in this volume giving the names of men. 
Valuable exceptions are found on pages 24 and 375-6 ; but these 
names of women give little clue to parentage.
