THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHN RUSSELL OF 
DARTMOUTH, MASS. 



1. JoHN^ Rlssell and his wife Dorothy, of Dartmouth, Mass., lived in 
Marshfield, Mass., as early as 1642 or 1643, where, according to the town 
records, he was elected constable. The same town records, under date of 
Feb. 12, 1643-4, state "they have granted to John Russell and his heirs 
forever all that marsh and meadow which lieth between the marsh of Josiah 
Winslow and Kenelm Winslow." Sept. 27, 1643, Mr. Thomas Bourne, 
Robert Waterman, John Bourne, Roger Cook and John Russell were ap- 
pointed to keep watch at Thomas Bourne's house. March 5, 1643-4, he 
was propounded to the General Court at Plymouth to become a freeman, 
and on June 5, 1644, was made a freeman by the same court. On Nov. 13, 
1644, "John Russell hath a grant of thirty acres of land next to the land 
formerly granted to John Thomas and Robert Chambers." Aug. 19, 1645, 
he was among those of the town who were willing to support a school teacher, 
and on Oct. 14, 1646, he was chosen one of the committee to the next Court. 
In 1648 he was chosen one of the raters, and that same year was suiweyor 
of highways of Marshfield. May 21, 1650, he was fined for not appearing 
at town meeting; and May 18, 1657, he was chosen grand juryman. IMar. 
20, 1661, he bought of Edward Gray, attorney to Miles Standish, his share 
of the town of Dartmouth, Mass., for £42. The deed says "John Russell 
of Marshfield," but henceforth he is identified with the history of the town 
of Dartmouth. He was the representative to the Colony Court from the 
town of Dartmouth, 1665-83, except in 1666 and 1673, when John Cooke 
was representative. March 6, 1676-7, "John Cooke, [Lieut.] John Smith 
and John Russell are appointed to distribute the 22 lb. fund donated by 
divers christians in Ireland for the relief of such as are impoverished, dis- 
tressed and in necessitie by the late Indian war." 

It is thought by some that he was the son of Ralph Russell of Pontipool, 
Monmouthshire, Wales, who came to Braintree, Mass., and from there went 
to Taunton, Mass., in 1652, to build iron-works in company with the broth- 
ers James and Henry Leonard ( Bailies's Hist, of Plymouth, pt. II., p. 268). 
It has been stated that Ralph later went to Dartmouth, and started a forge 
at Russell's Mills, and was the aucestor of the Russells of that town ; but 
I have been uuable to find any proof that he was the father of John, or that 
he built the aforesaid forge. John is thought to have been born in 1608. 

He married Dorothy , and died 2:13: 16'J4-5. She died 12 : 13 

1687.

Society of Friends, of which he was a strict member ; the long- 
skirted coat, long waistcoat, and knee-breeches, with buckles in his 
shoes, or top boots, and a three-cornered hat. His hair, even in his 
latter years, was thick, and of dark color mixed with gray, his eye- 
brows remarkably heavy, and the general expression of his counten- 
ance stern, though at times he could enter into the spirit of humor. 
He was much devoted to the principles of the Society of Friends, 
and in reading the Bible aloud, as was his usual custom, he adopted 
the peculiar tone of the preachers of his sect. He was a man of 
great industry, prudence, and enterprise, and of strict integrity of 
character, a large farmer, an extensive landholder, and, as before 
stated, the originator of the whale-fishery and the manufacture of 
spermaceti candles in New Bedford."
