LINCOLN COUNTY, MAINE, PETITIONS. 

William Blake Trask. A. M., of Dorchester, communicated to 
the New England Historical and Genealogical Register (April, 1890) 
a " Petition of the Inhabitants of Kennebec River for Protection," 
dated April 22, 1755, which contains substantially the same names as 
the first of the two petitions here printed. As there are several names 
in each petition not found in the other, and as they differ in date 
nearly three years, it has been thovight advisable to print the earlier 
petition here in full, with rules to indicate the position of the signa- 
tures by pages. 

The first of the petitions which follow is not dated, but the refer- 
ence to the date of the first in the second ("in Nov"': 1752 "), and 
the action of the House of Representatives on November 28, 1752, 
establish its place chronologically as fully two and one-half years 
earlier than the petition published in the Register. 

The second petition here printed differs from the others widely in 
the names of its signers. The three petitions probably contain the 
signatures of a large majority of the adult male inhabitants of that 
part of York County which was incorporated July 21, 1760, as Lincoln 
County. The signatures are arranged in two columns in the first 
petition, and in three in the second.

1 hat the Inhabitants of said Tract had formerly the Privile-e of

Discover That the great Distance that Suitors, Witnesses cS. Turo s

Danger of the Roads thither are a great Difficulty and Burden to

perplexity- arising from the Doubtfullness of such Courts Juriscict on

[207] Governour and Commander in Chief in & over His Maj- 
estys Province of the Massachusetts Bay and the Honour- 
able the Council & Honourable House of Representatives. 
The Memorial of 

Humbly Sheweth 
That a great number of the Inhabitants of the County of York to the 
Eastward of North Yarmouth, petitioned the Great & General Court 
in Nov"": 1752. to be formed into a Distinct & Seperate County, for 
the reasons in said Petition mentioned, which Petition as we are in- 
form'd was revived in Feby*. 1760. and then refered together with a 
Petition from Falmouth for a New County to the next May Sessions 
your Memorialists having long experienced the great charge incon- 
venience & hardship of attending upon Courts at a Distance. 
Humbly pray your Honours 

that a New County may be formed in the Easterly part of the County 
of York to be bounded on the West by a line to run from some part 
of Casco=Bay to Amorescoggin River and from thence by Amores- 
coggin River and all that part of the Province which lies to the East- 
ward of such a line may be included in said New County ; and that 
Pownallborough may be the Shire or County Town, and have the 
Priviledge of being Represented at the General Court, all which will 
greatly accommodate the Inhabitants and have a great tendency to 
incourage the Growth & Settlements of that part of the Province.

The Eiii^dish Ancestry of Reinold and Matthe^v Marvin of Hartford, Ct., /6j8

Tliis is the result of a search in English original records in 1897-99 ; the 
author gives particulars of seven generations in England ; he has established the 
birthplace of the brothers from whom the New England Marvins were descended, 
and located the estate of their father, so that one who visits the Parish can iden- 
tify the lands he once owned and the spot where he lived. The Registers of the 
Church, telling of the baptisms of the emigrants and their children, are still pre- 
served ; these, with other Registers consulted, and Wills, make the foundation of 
the work, which contains seventeen Marvin Wills (1475-1622), with abstracts 
of nine others of members of allied families (mostly daughters' husbands), in- 
cluding those of the grandfather, father, and other relatives of the emigrants, 
copied verbatitn et literatim from oinginals or official records never before printed. 
These give the names of residences and estates once owned by Marvins, and 
often the names of their tenants. The author states that each Parish named in 
the Wills was visited if its Register was old enough to give light. In one of 
tiiese, families bearing the name are living to-day. Descriptions of their ancient 
(!hurclies and the names of their Clergy and other historical facts are given. 
The volume lias two maps — photogravures of those in Camden's Britannia — 
one with notes added to show localities of Marvin homes ; a view of the C'hurch 
where Reinold and Matthew were baptized, of the (Jreen near by, and the Church 
in a neighboring Parish where their grandfather lies buried, from photographs. 
It is fully indexed, i^rinted on antique deckle-edge paper, and is bound in 
buckram. *

Book Notes. 



Rev. Dudley Woodbridge his C/mrc/i Record at .Shnsbnry in Conn., ibgy-ijio. 
Published with prefatory notes by Albert C. Bates Librarian Connecticut His- 
torical Society. Hartford. 1894. 8vo, pp. 32. Edition, 100 copies. 

About ten years ago the attention of a Middletown antiquarian was called to 
an old and badly tattered manuscript which on account of its venerable appear- 
ance had escaped the fate of its companions, consignment to the paper mill. This 
manuscript proved to be the Rev. Dudley Woodbridge's Record of the Church 
at Simsbury which had been missing for many years. The church, having recov- 
ered the record, permitted Mr. Albert C. Bates, librarian of the Connecticut His- 
torical Society, to transcribe and publish it. The record comprises the church 
covenant, and admissions and baptisms from November 10, [697 to February 12, 
1709-10. Many of the baptismal records contain also the date of birth. Mr. 
Bates presents valuable biographical memoranda relating to Rev. Dudley Wood- 
l>ridge in his prefatory notes and completes the work with a good full-name index. 
Every page of this pamphlet bears evidence of the most painstaking care in the 
transcription and the proof-reading. 

A Brief Account of the Ancestry and Descendants of William Bedlow Crosby, of 
New York, and of Harriet Ashton Clarkson, his wife. By Ernest Howard 
Crosby. Reprinted from the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record 
for October, 1898, January, April and July, 1899. 4*^0' PP- 24. 

William Bedlow (5) Crosby was descended from Simon (i) Crosby who died 
at Cambridge, Mass., in September, 1639. The line of descent was through 
Joseph (2) Crosby of Braintree who married Sarah Brackett ; Major Joseph (3) 
Crosby, Jr., of Braintree who married Ann Belcher; and Dr. Ebenezer(4) Crosby, 
who married Catharine Bedlow of New 'S'ork. 

Harriet Ashton (5) Clarkson was descended from Matthew (i) Clarkson, who 
was Secretary of the Province of New York, and died in 1702. The line of de- 
scent was through Matthew (2) Clarkson, Jr., who married Cornelia Bancker de 
Peyster; Dr. Gerardus (3) Clarkson who married Mary Flower; and Rev. Wil- 
liam (4) Clarkson who married Catharine Floyd. 

The first nineteen pages of this pamphlet are devoted to an extended and 
interesting account of William Bedlow and Harriet Ashton (Clarkson) Crosby 
and their ancestors, the remaining pages to a well arranged genealogy of their 
descendants. The illustrations are portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Crosby and a view 
of the Rutgers-Crosby house in New York City. An index would have added to 
the usefulness of this reprint. 

Annals of Yarntoiith and Barri)igton, Nor'a Scotia, in the Revolutionary War. 
Compiled from original manuscripts, etc., contained in the Office of the Secre- 
tary of the Commonwealth, State House, Boston, Mass. By Edmund Duval 
Poole. Yarmouth, N. S. Reprinted from the Yarmouth Herald. J. Murray 
lawson. 1899. 8vo. pp. 133. 

Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and the adjacent country was settled about 1760, 
largely by people from the eastern counties of Massachusetts. The beginning of 
hostilities between the colonies and Great Britain placed these settlers in an 
extremely delicate position. They wished to remain neutral. They were bound 
to the people of Massachusetts not only by the ties of friendship and kinship but 
also liv the strongest commercial interests. Massachusetts furnished them a 
ready rnarket in which to exchange the products of their own country for needed 
provisions and supplies. This market was closed by the war, and the privateers 
which infested the coast of Nova Scotia practically closed all other markets and 
caused much suffering, especially in the coast towns. The story of how these 
settlers managed to secure immunity from the privateers and to keep up trade 
relations with Massachusetts on account of services rendered is unfolded in the 
letters, petitions, depositions and records preserved in the Massachusetts Archives 
and printed in this volume. It is an interesting .story of a kind, shrewd people 
remaining quasiAo'^'iX to their own government and friendly to their former neigh- 
bors and their kindred who were in rebellion against that government.

Foster Genealogy being the record of the posterity of Reginald Foster an earlv 
inhabitant of Ipswich, in New England, whose genealogy is traced back to 
Anacher, Great Forester of Flanders, who died in 837 A. D. With wills, 
inventories, biographical sketches, etc. Also the Record of All Other Ameii- 
can Fosters. By Frederick Clifton i'ierce, author of the Batcheller, Brockle- 
bank, Fiske, Whitney, Pierce, Peirce, and Pearce Genealogies, liawke Memo- 
rial, Forbes-Forbush and Gibson Genealogies, History of Grafton, History of 
Barre, History of Rockford, Pierce Memorial, Field Genealogy. Published by 
the author. Chicago. 1899. 8vo. pp. 1081. 

This volume is similar in many respects to the genealogies of the Whitney, 
Fiske and Batcheller families recently published by the same compiler. Besides 
the family of Reginald Foster of Ipswich, it contains genealogies of the Fostei- 
families of Dorchester, Salem, Long Island, Scituate, Chelmsford, and Kingsware 
(Eng.) ; an article on the origin of the name by John Fiske; a pedigree of "The 
Early Foresters " ; a generous extract from one of Sir Walter Besant's novels, 
" Dorothy Foster " ; lists of soldiers, pensioners and college graduates bearing the 
name ; and descriptions of the Fame Islands, Bamborough Castle and St. Aidan's 
Church. 

The pedigree of "The Early Foresters" deduces the descent of Reginald 
Foster from " Anacher, Great Forester of Flanders " who died in 837, through 
"Thomas, Cuthbert, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir 
Thomas, Sir Thomas, Sir William. Sir Richard, Sir Reginald, Sir Alfred, .Sir Ran- 
dolph, Sir John, Sir William, Sir Reginald, Sir Hugo, Sir Richard, Baldwin IV. 
Baldwin III, Baldwin II, Baldwin I." Truly a remarkable pedigree, supported in 
several generations by giving the dates of the wills I 

There is little to commend in a hastily compiled and inadequately indexed 
volume of more than a thousand pages in tine print on cheap paper, in which 
are included the records of families of a similar name, but having no known 
connection. *** 



NOTE. 

The Old Plantkks Society. A new historical society was organized in 
Boston, March i, 1900, to be known as The Old Planters Society. Its chief 
objects are to encourage the study of the beginnings of New England History and 
to perpetuate the memory of the earliest settlers of that section. 

Membership is limited to the descendants of a proprietor, or a planter, or 
other settler in New England prior to the transfer of the Charter of the Massa- 
chusetts Bay Company from England to New England in 1630. While the mem- 
ijership is based on descent, it is not the purpose of the foimders to make it a 
social organization, but rather to make it a Hve, working historical body. It is 
expected that an historical publication will be commenced at an early date. 

The officers are Col. Thomas W^entworth Higginson, LL. D., of Cambridge, 
president, Frank Augustine Gardner, M. D., of Salem, vice-president, Eben 
!*utnam, of Burlington, Vt., secretary, Frank Vernon Wright, Esq., of Salem, 
treasurer ; Francis Ellingwood Abbot, Ph. D., of Cambridge, Capt. Augustus Pea- 
body Gardner, of Hamilton, Mrs. Lucy Hall Greenlaw of Cambridge, Col. Josiah 
Granville Leach, LL. B., of Philadelphia, Edward Oliver Skelton of Boston, Miss 
Mai7 Cummings Sawyer of Wellesley Hills, William Crowinshield Endicott, Jr., 
of Danvers, Frederic' Ward Putnam, S. D., of (Cambridge, and Mrs. Ida Farr 
Miller of Wakefield, members of the council. 

The list of members (subject to proof of descent) includes besides the officers 
above named, Hon. George Frisbie Hoar, LL. D., of Worcester, Hon. Henry 
Cabot Lodge, LI>. D., of Nahant, Hon. Henry Nichols Blake, LL. B., of Helena.

Thomas Johnston, when but a boy, purchased on credit a supply of 
goods and started on a peddling expedition in Scotland. His en- 
tire stock of goods was stolen in the night at a tavern where he 
stopped, and fearing to return and meet his creditor, he determined 
to try his fortune with a party of emigrants who were going to 
America to settle upon the Waldo patent. The letters which fol- 
low give considerable information about his family in Scotland. 

Brother, I received your letter to my astonishment, dated on the i8th of Nov. 
1789 by the hand of Mr. Proctor in Softlaw near Kelso, which I will see myself 
indebted to him as long as I live, for the great trouble he has been at to get it 
delivered safe to me. In the first place with respect to your parents, our mother 
died in Preston in March 1772, and she mourned till the day of her death for 
you ; and I think I hear my old father joining that speech (you know where it 
stands) when your letter arrived here, my son was dead & is alive, was lost and is 
found, — bring hither the fatted calf, dress it and let us eat and be merry. But 
to give you a more particular account of our aged parents ; when our mother 
died my father was so struck with palsey that he was incapable of action, but she 
was decently interred in Preston churchyard by her 3 sons and 2 sons-in-law. My 
father died in Nov. in the year 1775 in the 77th year of his age, and is lying in 
Preston churchyard. 

But to give you an account of us all I shall begin with our oldest brother 
John, who learned his trade with George Johnston in Abbey St Bathans, a 
weaver. He married as soon almost as he was free from an apprenticeship. His 
wife's name is Baby [Barbara] White; — you will remember her. She lived in 
Cattledugh [Castleshield ?] ; by her he had 6 sons and 2 daughters. The daugh- 
ters died in infancy and 2 of his sons have fallen since. The names of those that 
survive are Thomas, David, John, and William. But I am sorry to let you know- 
that he died in August 1781 ; and if he be not happy this day I do not know when 
I shall appear. David, his second son, is a weaver, and is in the house with his 
mother. John and William are paper-makers. Thomas learned no business ; 
and I do not know where he is now. Our brother John died in Chirnside, and 
was interred in Preston churchyard. Our sister-in-law is now in Alumbank 
quarter [?], a widow. To come now to our oldest sister Margaret ; she married a 
very sober young man whose name is James Greenlaw ; they lived mostly in Lam- 
mermuir. She had to him 7 sons, and 3 daughters ; 2 sons and i daughter died 
in infancy, and there are 5 sons and 2 daughters living. The oldest daughter is 
married ; her name is Jenet ; her sister Jean keeps the house with her father. 
Our brother-in-law at this time is living in Dunselaw. His sons names are Thomas, 
James, Robert, Andrew and John, the youngest, who I think is 12 years old. But 
now, brother, I am sorry to tell you our sister died in March 1788, and left, I dare 
say, a loving husband and a heavy family. He still remains a widower. I come 
now to our youngest sister Baby [Barbara] who married a very sober young man 
whose name was Robert Gray, a mason to his business. Babbay [Barbara] had 
to him 5 children, whose names were John & Jenat, Jean, Thomas, and Margaret. 
John & Jenat are twins, and both alive ; Jean and Thomas died in infancy. But 
again I tell you with lamentation our brother-in-law died in Januaiy in the year 
1776, and left our sister with 3 small children. No doubt but she has had her 
own difficulties, but the youngest is now about 13 years old. Babby [Barbara] 
still remains a widow, and is living just now at Burnhouse (}) near Cockburn. 
Our youngest brother Rodger married a young woman whose name was Margaret 
Todd, and by her he has 4 children, 2 sons and 2 daughters, Jenat, James, Thomas, 
and Margaret. At this time he is living in Horsly (?) and follows laboring work. 

I return to myself, I am your brother Andrew Johnston ; I married Jean 
Cairns, daughter of James Cairns in Blackhouse. She was brought up at Elm-

Bristol and Bremen Families. 



ford with her uncle John Cairns, you will mind her. She has borne to me 5 sons 
and 4 daughters, [of whom] I have just now living i daughter and 4 sons. Their 
names are Jean, James, John, Robert, and Trotter (?). My oldest son, Thomas, 
was killed with a cart-wheele when 14 years of age, and 3 daughters died in infancy. 
I live just now in Castleshield where I have been 17 years with a gentleman 
whose name is John Trotter, Esq. I never learned any business, but like old 
Jacob, have been a keeper of Sheep from my youth up. I live in the parish of 
Longformacus and have done for nearly 30 years. You was born Hhere ; and I 
have consulted their Sessions records, and find you (were) born March 31st, 1735. 
So if this comes safe to your hand you will easily know your age. 

Sir: — I think we received two letters dated from America in the year 1755, 
both about the same time, but I mind very little about it, being then but a boy ; 
but I know my father wrote to your direction often. But I see you have received 
only one [of them]. If this comes safe to your hands take it as a token of love 
from all your brothers and sisters and their families. To cover our every cir- 
cumstance of life that has happened this family since you left Britain I have 
neither room [for] nor do I mind [remember] them. Old uncle John Mill is still 
alive in Earlstone schoolmaster; and our 2 cousins in Kelso, Ann and Margaret 
Trotter are in health. Sir in the year 1780 I settled an account with Adam Wil- 
son, merchant in Dunse, which you had left him, and I took his discharge, which 
is still in my possession [for] £\ . . 5s . . 6d. Sir you will not take this last clause 
of my letter ill, for believe it, brother, I would rather see your face in Scotland 
once more than be in possession of your estate. My love to my sister-in-law and 
sons and daughters. I remain your loving brother till death.

Mr. Proctor begs his compl. to Mr. Johnson, is happy 
he has found out his friends. His br. And. is with me 
at Softlaw 31 January 1790. 

To the care of John Proctor, Esq of Direct for me And. Johnston, over 

Softlaw by Kelso. seer in Castleshield, near Dunse. 

Loving Brother, in haste of postage [so as to send i"] by Mr. McLean ; we are 
all well, and all friends. As to the contents of your letter about sending the bill 
of exchange on a merchant in Glasgow, as for that matter I shall make a pass- 
over till your opportunity offers. As for any of our friends coming over there 
can be nothing said at present. If we were to see one another face to face [it] 
would be the greatest happiness and make an amends for all. As for Adam Wil- 
son's bill it was £\ ; his receipt is in my possession. Your sister Margaret's 
oldest son is in the West Indies, in the military line ; his name is Thomas Green- 
law. 

Brother, I let you know [that] I [have] lost my youngest son since I wrote 
you last ; which is hard for the mother. I must conclude as in haste ; and believe 
me, dear brother, to remain your most affectionate [brother] till death. 

Edinburgh And. Johnston. 

12 March, 1792. 

P. S. Direct to me as formerly, Castleshield, Stuart, by Dunse. Brother 
remember I am a lover of the Hanover Family. 

Superscribed " Thos. Johnston, Esq. Bristol, to the care of Rev. Mr. McLean. 

Dear Brother — I received, by post, yours witii Mr. McLean's postcript, on the 
loth of September. He writes me that his health is bad, and that he will not be 
able to come to me ; but if he does come I will take care of him as a friend. I 
have written him that I must be in Edinburgh and Falkirk about the 12th of 
October, and if he be within 60 miles 1 shall see him. I do believe we shall be 
happy together, but I should have been tenfold happier to have seen a brother 
near 40 years out of mind. I mind [remember] very little of you ; — it is sur- 
prising Babby [Barbara] minds more of you than I do ; Rodger does not remem- 
ber of seeing you at all. Brother at the appearance of your first letter 1 was so 



Bristol and Bremen FatniUes.

struck and overcome that I was speechless for about one hour ; — whether it was 
joy or grief I could not tell. — To return to your last letter, my time being short, 
for Mr. McLean writes me that the vessel is to sail in less than ten days, which 
gives me no time to consult my friends. But I thank you kindly in the name of 
all of us for your offer of assistance in case of transportation. With regard to 
myself I have reason to thank my God that I have had the necessaries of life 
both to serve myself and to help a weak brother as I have often done ; and I can 
add that I never had a brother or sister but they have received of my liberal (?) 
bounty ; — more so I believe than I shall be well paid back. Nevertheless I have 
both meat and money, to serve myself ; and it would be vain in me to attempt to 
change my native [country] and despise the goodness of my God. Brother, you 
complain of want of money in America ; if that be the case it is not so in Scot- 
land, for I can see no pinch. If I be in a strait [I can] go to Dunse banking 
office with a friend and draw £20, or ^50, or ;i^ioo for six or twelve months at 
five per cent, so that men of credit and honesty can carry on a good business if 
smart and not have any great stock of his own. North Britain is greatly altered 
since you left it, as much as one penny Scotch is to one shilling Sterling. Brother 
you have neglected this grand opportunity of paying me that account. It was, I 
own, out of Wilson's power to compel me, but when I came up I determined that 
your name should not stick in the Merse Country ; for I always think that saying 
true that if a man be not just to his neighbor whom he has seen he never can be 
just to his God whom he never saw, and w\\\ at last be found wanting in the bal- 
ance of the sanctuary. But to return from this digression : My brother John's 
family have behaved themselves very well, and do nothing without my advice ; — 
and Baby [Barbara] and her family the self-same. But I have not [recently] seen 
any of them, being at a good distance, and my time short for fear of losing the 
vessel, so that I cannot advise you of doing anything at all until March when 
Mr. McLean goes home. We shall then have a meeting, and I shall advise them 
forward as much as I possibly can. As for my oldest son, he is an apprentice for 
a gardener ; and if he were out of his time, I would send him to you, and you 
should be his governor: — and be sure to keep your youngest daughter for him, 
and induce him to aspire to that lofty title which you assume to yourself, Esq. ! 

Brother, I am happy to hear of the prosperity of your family, but sorry to 
hear of the frailty of my sister which I never saw. Pray do not fail to write me 
in March how she is, and all friends. 

Brother farewell

STOW EPITAPHS. 
Conii/iued from Vol. II, p. jp. 

Under this Sepulchral Stone rests in Christian Hope of a blessed 
Resurrection, what was mortal, of the Rev'^. John Gardner, and Mary 
his wife. 

M^ Gardner descended from a reputable Family in Charlestowti. 
Was educated at Harvard College, where by improving his natural 
gifts He was qualified for the Service of the Sanctuary, Was intro- 
duced to the work of the Gospelministry at Stow, October 17 17, 
Was a man of undisembled piety, and virtue : Sound in the princi- 
ples of Religion, & faithful in the discharge of the duties of his office. 
Was prudent, peaceable. Hospitable. In the conjugal and parental 
Relations was Kind & endearing ; was very attentive to the Education 
of his Children, who had large experience of his labours of Love 
towards them. He closed a pious & useful Life, on the 10''^ of Jan''. 
1775 : In the 80''^ year of his Age. 

Mrs. Gardner was the eldest daughter of the Rev^ Joseph Baxter, 
of Medfield, and at 19 years of age, married the Rev^. John Gardner 
of Stow. Her natural good understanding, improved by a polite, and 
pious Education ; enabled her to discharge the duties of a wife ; a 
Parent and a Friend ; with uncommon Esteem. After many years 
conflict with Infirmities and Pains, without weakening her Faith, 
or disquieting her Patience She closed a most examplary Life on the 
30"' of Dec. 1784 In the 84''' year of her Age. 

Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord 

For they rest from their Labours and their works do follow them.

FALMOUTH, MASS., RECORDS. 

The first book of Falmouth Town Records, a thin folio volume 
which has recently been treated with the Emery process, is written in 
from both ends, the volume being reversed, and the original paging 
beginning at i in each end and meeting near the centre of the 
volume. This arrangement makes about one-half of the book upside 
down, no matter which way it stands, and leaves in doubt which end 
is the beginning. A copy of the book made for the town about 
twelve years ago begins with what is, in the present binding, the 
back of the volume and continues with the matter in its present front. 
The records as here printed follow the order of the copy but are 
transcribed from the original. They comprise the vital records only, 
which are mixed in with the town proceedings, records of ear marks 
and other miscellaneous matter.

BOOK NOTES. 



Genealogy of the Descendants of Edward Bates of Weymout/i, Mass. By Samuel 
A. Bates, Vice-President of Qiiincy Historical Society ; Honorary Member of 
Weymouth, Old Colony, and Maine Historical Societies. Author of " History 
of Braintree, Mass. ; " " Ancient Iron Works at Braintree " (first in America) ; 
" Revolutionary Soldiers of Braintree." Editor of " Printed Records of Brain- 
tree." Frank A. Bates, Publisher, South Braintree, Mass. 1900. 8vo, pp. 145. 
Price $1.25. 

The principal part of this genealogy was prepared by the late Samuel Austin 
Bates, who, for many years, was town clerk of Braintree. The work was completed, 
edited and published by his son. A biography of Edward Bates, the progenitor 
of the family, precedes the genealogy, and it is followed by a biography of the 
family historian. A list of Revolutionary soldiers and two indexes of names com- 
plete the volume. 

Diary of Increase Mather, March, i6jj — December, i6y6. Together with Extracts 
from another Diary by him, 1674. — JOS'/. With an Introduction and Notes, by 
Samuel A. Green. Cambridge : John Wilson and Son. University Press. 1900. 
8vo, pp. 56. 

This fragment of Dr. Mather's diary, which has survived the ravages of time 
and has been rendered available to the public by Dr. Green, gives a vivid glimpse 
of the inner life of the diarist and of the times in which he lived. The brief items, 
which the writer jotted down apparently for later use in more extended form, and 
the intermingled pious ejaculations, detail his daily occupations, illustrate the 
working of his mind and show the kind of mental and spiritual food then con- 
sidered necessary for the puritan minister. His solicitude for the safety of Boston 
and for the welfare of his own family is shown in frequent examinations of himself 
and of "ye pvblick state of things." 

The diarist begins on the first day of the year (im. 25d. 1675) with one of 
these examinations in which he mentions as reasons for Providence putting him 



Book Notes. 6 1 

"upon Humiliation extraordinary", "ye sins of ye year past", "My old sins," 
" The plagues of Hrt yt doe still abide me." As to the public state of affairs he 
notes the low estate of the Lord's people, the poverty of the country, the unsatis- 
factory condition of trade, the desolation of the " Colledge " and designs against 
New England. He records no resolutions for the new year. His prayer is that 
the public may be delivered and blessed, the Colledge be revived and " yt Boston 
may be preserved from Fires e [and] from mortal diseases." 

Again and again, after similar e.xaminations. we find him praying that Boston 
may be delivered from fires and desolating judgments. His prayers were in vain. 
The long dreaded conflagration, the danger of which he so clearly saw, came at 
last, and we find him thus chronicling it under date of November 27, 1676: "This 
was ye Fatal e dismall day, wn ye Meeting House e Houses yrabouts, e mine 
amongst ye Rest were burnt wh fire." 

Besides the original diary for 1675-6, the pamphlet contains extracts from 
another diary by Ur. Mather. These extracts were made by Dr. Jeremy Belknap 
more than a century ago from the original which is now supposed to be lost. They 
extend from 1674 to 1687 and illustrate that interesting period of New England 
history. 

Dr. Green has rendered a service of inestimable value to historians and gene- 
alogists in making this diary accessible. *** 

The Genealogy Histo7-y and Alliances of the American House of Delano 1621 to 
1899 Compiled by Major Joel Andrew Delano with the History and Heraldry 
of the Maison de Franchimont and de Lannoy to Delano, 1096 to 1621 and the 
Royal ancestry of Lannoy from Guelph, Prince of the Scyrri, to Philippe de 
Lannoy, 476 A. D. to 162 1 including other royal lines and a list of the Lannoy 
Chevaliers de la Toison d'Or [Golden Fleece] arranged by Mortimer Delano de 
Lannoy Pursuivant-of-armes Member New York Genealogical and Biographical 
Society Societe Suisse d'LIeraldique and Herold Society zu Berlin. New' York 
1899. 4to, pp. 561. 

The greater part of this work is devoted to the descendants of Philip Delano 
(De La Noye) who came to Plymouth on the "Fortune" in 1621, and married, 
Dec. 19, 1634, Hester Dewsbury. The compilation was made by Maj. Joel An- 
drew Delano of Grove, Michigan, and appears to have been conscientiously done. 
The book is printed on excellent paper : it would seem, however, that the amount 
of money expended, might, by intelligent disposition, have secured a work of 
largely increased value to present and future generations. 

From the title page we infer that Mortimer Delano de Lannoy is responsible 
for everything contained in the book except the collection of the genealogical 
material, and for the editing of that. In spite of all that has been written regard- 
ing the logical arrangement of family genealogies, here we are given a book that 
abandons all precedent, and jumbles the various families together in a way that 
renders the tracing of ascent and descent a matter of the greatest difficulty. No 
superior numerals, denoting the generation, nor consecutive numbers appear. 
While the title " pursuivant-of-armes " is doubtless mellifluent, however derived, 
(certainly not from the Heralds' College,) in this work it appears synonymous 
with an utter inconception of the features essential to a genealogy and of the 
value of punctuation. 

The first ninety odd pages and an inserted chart give " every direct and indi- 
rect line of [the immigrant's] ancestiy from the earliest known data — authentic 
a?id otherwise."' The historical value of this portion needs no comment other 
than the author's own ! 

The evil of an atrocious arrangement might easily have been palliated by a 
complete full-name index. The opportunity is neglected. All surnames begin- 
ning with a given letter are grouped together regardless of their second letter. 
Given names occur only of Delanos. Cora Delano appears first on the list and 
Carmen last ! 

As far as editing is concerned the book is valuable mostly as an example of 
what to avoid. ***

An account of the fourth reunion of this Association, a register of members 
attending the same, and biographical notices of deceased members are given in 
the opening pages of this pamphlet. The necrologies are of John Harper Blais- 
dell of Haverhill, Mass., Charles Edwin Bean of Iowa City, la., Flora Stella Bean 
of Littleton, N. H., Emma Jane Wadleigh of Waterloo, and Jonathan Gibson 
Bean of Brownfield, Me. The remaining pages contain the continuation, from

Clapp & Son. 1900. 8vo, pp. 10. Price, twenty cents. For sale by Miss 
Guild, 34 Pratt St., Providence, R. I. 

This pamphlet is a reprint from the New England Historical and Genealogi- 
cal Register. It was compiled to refute certain errors in print concerning the 
Rhode Island Gorhams. The work has been done with great care, and references 
to the original sources of information are given in footnotes. 

The California Register. Vol. I, No. i. April, 1900. San Francisco: Published 
by the California Genealogical Society. [Dr. Edward Stephens Clark, May 
Stansbury Mansfield, and Zoeth Skinner Eldredge, Committee on Publication. 
Quarterly, $2.00 per annum, single numbers 60 cents.] 

This new periodical is patterned after the New England Historical and Gen- 
ealogical Register with the exception that a tabular pedigree occupies the place 
of the usual portrait. The initial number contains a tabular pedigree showing 
the ancestr)' of Mrs. Selden S. Wright ; genealogies of Holmes, Hughes, Pearl, 
Pope, and Peet families, all arranged on the " Register " plan ; constitution, lists 
of members and of officers of the California Genealogical Society ; a catalogue 
of genealogies and local histories owned in the vicinity of San Francisco ; and 
notes, queries and book notes. The committee have done well to make such a 
good beginning, and if their present standard of excellence is maintained, The 
California Register wnll make for itself a permanent place in American genealogi- 
cal literature. 

The Wade Genealogy being Some account of the origin of the name, and of the 
lost folk-story of the famous hero, Wada, particulars and pedigrees of famous 
Englishmen of the name, and Genealogies of the families of Wade of Massa- 
chusetts and New Jersey, to which are added many miscellaneous pedigrees, 
also A roll of honor of the Wades who went to War. Illustrated with por- 
traits and coats-of-arms. Compiled by Stuart C. Wade. New York, Stuart C. 
Wade, 146 West 34th Street. 1900. Part I. pp. 96. Price $1.00. 

Part I of this genealogy is divided into two chapters, the first treating of the 
origin and etymology of the name, the second of its antiquity, illustrated with 
English pedigrees. Forty-two pages are devoted to the origin of the name, from 
which we will quote two sentences found on page sixteen. " As to the origin of 
the family-name, nothing of any significance can be said. Speculation in this 
direction is futile." The second chapter is of doubtful value to American Wades, 
unless the compiler has better evidence than that presented on page eighty-four 
for an English connection. 

A History of the Allerton Family in the United States, ijSj to iSSj, and a Gen- 
ealogy of the Descendants of Isaac Allerton, " Alayflotoer Filgritn," Plymouth, 
Mass., 1620. By Walter S. Allerton, New York City, 1888. Revised and En- 
larged by Horace True Currier, Chicago. Published by Samuel Waters Aller- 
ton, Chicago, Illinois. 1900. 8vo, pp. 149. 

The compiler of this revised edition of the Allerton Family states in the 

preface that it is issued to add facts found since the publication of the first edi-

tion and "to correct errors which almost invariably occur in Genealogies through 
incorrect family records thought to be true when published, but aftersvards found 
otherwise." 

With the compiler's purpose in mind, we shall first examine his account of 
Isaac (i) Allerton's family on pages twenty-nine and thirty. There we find it 
stated that Remember {2) Allerton, daughter of Isaac (i), probably died soon 
after 1627, and that her sister Sarah (2) married Moses Maverick of Marblehead. 
Prior to the publication of Bradford's History in 1856 this error was excusable, 
but even then a patient searcher after the truth might have found an old docu- 
ment at Salem which gives Remember as the name of Moses Maverick's wife. 
This ancient writing may be seen in the files of the Essex County Probate Court 
(No. 30318). It is a petition of Remember and John Woodman, minor children 
of Edward and Remember Woodman and grandchildren of Moses Maverick, 
dated 22 September, 1693, and endorsed on the back is " Daughters of Moses & 
Rember Maverick ". It should be borne in mind that Marblehead was a part of 
Salem until about the time when Bradford wrote " His doughter Remember [Al- 
lerton] is maried at Salem, & hath 3 . or 4 . children living." 

A reference on this same page twenty-nine sends us off to the Appendix, 
Note A., for information about the Brewster family. There we find that the com- 
piler has borrowed four pages from an article published in the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Register, the writer of which is to be congratulated 
upon the omission of the customaiy acknowledgment. A comparison of Note A. 
wth the original article shows that the few changes that have been made have 
wrought havoc with its accuracy. In a single sentence on page 117 the compiler 
is able to make such changes as to add two passengers to the Mayflower list — 
one as a wife four years before her marriage, the other as a child five years before 
his birth — and to have that famous vessel drop anchor in Plymouth harbor five 
days before her arrival ! 

The modification of some of the extravagant statements in the biography of 
Isaac (i) Allerton and the omission of the derogatory reference to Governor 
Bradford would have been an improvement in that part of the book. *** 



NOTES.

records as far as now accessible within the territory covered. He has also can- 
vassed the passenger lists, letters, journals and other contemporaneous docu- 
ments. The arrangement is alphabetical, and under each name is given as far as 
found information as to the former home, kindred, social position, occupation, 
career, marriage, children, death and will of the settler. The price is now $10.00, 
strictly net and payable in advance. At an early date the price will be advanced 
to $12.00. Sample page and circular may be had of Mr. Pope at 221 Columbus 
Ave., Boston. 

Jameson Genealogy. Rev. E. O. Jameson, (49 Hancock Street, Boston) 
compiler of the Cogswell and Choate genealogies and of the histories of Med- 
way, has in press a genealogj' of the Jameson Family which will be ready for 
delivery to subscribers in the autumn of this year. The price to advance sub-

the erection, in the near future, of a memorial unto their common ancestor ; 



64 Queries. — Answer to Query. 

which memorial shall be an Hospital known as ' The Elder Brewster Memorial 
Hospital,' or such other form of memorial as may be hereafter substituted by the 
subscribers to the fund, and shall in dignity of design and execution do justice to 
the object in view." All interested in this memorial are invited to gather in 
Plymouth, Sept. 6, 1900, when the Society of Mayflower Descendants holds its 
Congress. Subscriptions will be acknowledged by the Treasurer of the Commit-

The Owl is the title of one of the newest of genealogical periodicals. It is 
edited by Mr. George Dikeman Wing, the twelve year old son of Judge George 
W. Wing of Kewaunee, Wisconsin. The first number was published in Septem- 
ber, 1899, s^'id it " hoots monthly for fifty cents a year." The " hooting " is largely 
about western branches of early New England families, among whom may be men 
tioned the Wings, Sweets, Gales, Benjamins, Spragues and Hoyts as receiving 
special attention in the numbers thus far pulDlished. 



QUERIES. 

A charge of one cent per word is made for the insertion of queries, and a year's subscription to

25. Mary, not Mercy, wife of Peter Worden, died at Yarmouth, May, 1687. 
Dennis was not set off till a hundred years later. Worden Family Record 
by O. N. Worden, 1868, thinks she was a Sears or Winslow. She certainly 
was not a Sears. Freeman's Hist. Ca))e Cod, II. 764, says " Kenelm 
Winslow, Jr., married his cousin, Mercy Worden," and this indicates a pre- 
vious Winslow and Worden marriage. Mary Worden's will is recorded at 
Barnstable. A search of Winslow records might settle the connection.

UNITED STATES DIRECT TAX, 1798. 

Twenty-third District of the First Division of 
Massachusetts. 

communicated by frank ERNEST WOODWARD, MALDEN, MASS. 



In 1798 The Congress imposed upon the people of the United 
States a direct tax of two million dollars, which amount was appor- 
tioned to the several States. The State of Massachusetts, then in- 
cluding Maine, was assessed as her share two hundred and sixty- 
thousand, four hundred and thirty-five dollars. For purposes of tax- 
ation the State was divided into districts under the direction of the 
Collectors of Internal Revenue. The returns were deposited in the 
Boston Custom-house where they remained in obscurity till about 
the year 1855, when, with the approval of the Collector, they were 
transferred to the custody of the New England Historic Genealogical 
Society where they are still preserved. 

These returns are of great value to the genealogist. The list 
published below contains the names of all heads of families who in 
1798 were living in the towns of Bristol, Waldoborough, Noble- 
borough, and Medumcook (Friendship), Me., as well as all who 
owned lands. The assessors prepared two schedules, the first con- 
taining a list of all owners of dwelling houses which with a house lot 
of one-quarter of an acre exceeded in value one hundred dollars ; the 
second included all owners of dwelling houses of less value than 
one hundred dollars, and all owners of land within the district em- 
braced by these four towns. 

These two lists have here been combined into one. The first 
column represents the number of dwelling houses ; the second their 
value ; the third, the number of acres of land owned not including 
house lots, and the fourth their value.

[The remainder of the book being the last pages, containing Bap- 
tisms by Mr. Dennis to April 5, 1752 is lost. It was apparently intact 
when Mr. Freeman was writing his History of Dennis, as he gives 
the number of Baptisms by Mr. Dennis at 560 ; there are therefore 
320 names missing.]

James Parshall and His Descendants Compiled from the most authentic records. 
By James C. Parshall, Esq., Counsellor at Law, Author of The Barker Gene- 
alogy, etc. Syracuse. Privately Printed. 1900. 8vo, pp. 38. Price, $1.00. 
The chief purpose of the compiler in publishing this pamphlet is to awaken 
among the descendants of James Parshall, who settled in Southold, L. I. in the 
latter part of the seventeenth century, an interest in a more complete genealogy 
which he intends to compile and publish. This method of interesting a family in 
a proposed genealogy dates back to the early days of the New England Historical 
and Genealogical Register, when the custom was established of printing a brief 
genealogy of the early generations of a family in that periodical and reprinting 
the same in pamphlet form, a custom happily maintained to the present time. 
Mr. Parshall has arranged this genealogy on a modified form of the Register 
plan, which would have been improved if he had used arabic numerals to des- 
ignate such individuals as appear in the next generation as heads of families. 
Mr. Parshall's work gives ample evidence of his ability to write an adequate 
genealogy of his family and he is entitled to the hearty cooperation of the other 
descendants in his undertaking.

some interesting information concerning the earlier generations might have been 
added from the registries of probate and deeds, had these been accessible to the 
compiler. By frecjuent references to the source from which her materials are 
drawn, the compiler reveals her appreciation of the value of giving authorities 
for statements in modern genealogical work.

BIOGRAPHY OF 
REV. DAVID AND ELIZABETH (PRESCOTT) HALL. 

BY EDITH G. L. PECKER, OF BOSTON. 

David-* Hall, born in the historic town of Yarmouth, Mass., Au- 
gust 6 (Old Style), 1704, was the fourth son of Joseph and Hannah 
(Miller) Hall. He was great-grandson of John' Hall of Yarmouth, 
who perhaps had formerly lived in Charlestown, and who died at 
Yarmouth, July 23, 1696. 

John^ Hall, Jr., son of the immigrant, had wife Priscilla, who died 
at Yarmouth, March 30, 17 12, aged 68. She was probably Priscilla 
Bearse, daughter of Augustine Bearse of Barnstable, and born March 
10, 1643/4. John Hall was a deacon of the church at Yarmouth and 
died there October 14, 17 10. His gravestone and that of his wife 
are in the old graveyard at Dennis. 

His son, Joseph^ Hall (father of David^), born at Yarmouth, Sept. 
29, 1663, settled on his father's farm, and like him was a deacon of 
the church. He married first, February 12, 1690, Hannah, daughter 
of John and Margaret (Winslow) Miller, who was born at Yarmouth, 
April 19, 1666, and died August 23, 1710; he married, second, Mary 
(Faunce) Morton, who died May 31, 1761, aged 80. Joseph Hall 
held the office of selectman 28 years, commencing in 1701, was 
chosen representative in 17 15 and '16, and in 17 16 was on a com- 
mittee to see about building a new meeting house. 

David-* Hall, the subject of this sketch, was graduated from Har- 
vard College in 1724, and received the degree of A. M. in course. 
In 1777, Dartmouth College conferred upon him the honorary degree 
of D. D, Thus blessed with a good education and naturally of a 
religious temperament, he was well fitted for the vocation which he 
had chosen — the ministry — and his " Diary," of which, through the 
courtesy of Dr. Samuel A. Green, Librarian of the Massachusetts 
Historical Society, I have made a careful perusal, testifies that he 
was eloquent. 

The people of Sutton, Mass., were not slow to appreciate this, for 
after having invited him to supply, for a few months, the place of 
their former pastor. Rev. John McKinstry, whom they had dismissed 
in 1728, they "voted that thar should bee a town meeting caled in 
order to give mr David Hall a call to Settel in the ministeral office in 

13 



98 Rev. David and Elizabeth Hall. 

Sutton."* This important town meeting was held March 26, 1729, 
when the town concurred with the church in giving Mr. Hall a call, 
and also voted that he should have a " Salery of one Hundred Per 
year in Province Bills, or the Equal value of one Hundred Pounds 
per year of Province Bills as they are now valued, as long as he shall 
serve them in the work of the ministry ". It was also agreed to 
" Leace out to mr David Hall part of the Ministeral Land — to wit — 
one thirty acre lot number 18, and one Seventy acre for Nine Hun- 
dred and Ninety nine Years at Six Pence Per year for Incouragement 
or towards his Setelment, and also to Give him one hundred Pounds 
in work, Meterals for Building ".* To their request he sent a char- 
acteristic reply of acceptance, dated July 15, 1729, and on October 
15 of that year, he was duly ordained pastor of the first Congrega- 
tional church of Sutton, and remained such the rest of his life. 

Soon after, June 24, 1731, he was married to Elizabeth, daughter 
of Dr. Jonathan and Rebecca (Bulkeley) Prescott, of Concord. 

The church at his settlement consisted of only forty-nine members, 
but in fifteen years, two hundred and sixty-one were added by his 
ardent labors, nor did he confine himself to Sutton alone, but in- 
cluded many towns from Boston to Cape Cod. His success is best 
shown by his own statements: "April 26'^ 1741 * * * y*^ fabath be- 
fore this I obferved almoft y^ whole affembly in tears at y*^ fame time. 
fo mighty came y^ word of y^ Lord uppon them ". " Sept. y*: 4**^ 
went this weak to concord preacht a lecture appointed while there. 
* * * both men & women came with tears and befought my Inftruction 
& prayers ". This occurred at Springfield and elsewhere. 

He was the friend and admirer of Jonathan Edwards, and was a 
member of the Ecclesiastical Council, called in 1750, to confer upon 
the differences which had arisen between Dr. Edwards and his 
church. Dr. Hall gives a spirited account of this affair in his 
" Diary ", and there records his protest against the dismissal of Dr. 
Edwards. 

Dr. Hall, himself, had much difficulty with his people, not only 
with the so-called " Separating Brethren " and other seceders from 
the church, but also in the matter of his salary, which, by the varia- 
tion in the value of currency, was a source of much dispute, and on 
several occasions the church and pastor came to an agreement by 
arbitration. 

He was a faithful worker to the day of his death, not only among 
his own flock but wherever he went. He cheered the afflicted and 
was constantly by the bedside of the dying, often visited ten or 
twelve families a week, and would go miles to catechise the little 
ones for whom he had an unusual fondness. 

It is said that Dr. Hall gave the common and burying-ground 
to the town. t Nov. 2, 175 1, he writes, "I have of Late given one 
Plundred Pounds old Tenor towards building a meeting Houfe ". In

1782, he sent as a present to Dartmouth College "fix Folio Zanchies 
Works 2 large folios John Calvins Expf '! on Daniel with the Hebrew 
& Latin text. Martin Buker's Exposition on Romans Theodore 
Bezaes Theological Treatice againft Papel Errors : & a Large vol- 
ume of Robert Bellermine in defence of Papel Errors all in Lattin ". 

In spite of his real success in the ministry, this pious man was 
much discouraged by the results of his endeavors, and although con- 
stantly fasting for the benefit of his soul, often felt that he had " lost 
y^ end of Gods cord of love ". Aug. i7"M759, with charming quaint- 
ness, he summarizes as follows — " This Day I was Born. 55 years 
are the Days of y^ years of my life, few and Evil have they been ! 
They are paffed Like a tale that is told, and as a watch in the night ! 
God has given me four fons and feven Daughters by the wife of my 
youth : 3 Grandsons & i grand Daughter have I alfo." Not only 
was he an ideal pastor, but a kind and loving husband and father as 
well. 

His views were unusually broad, and he was deeply interested in 
all matters concerning his own country and those across the seas, 
recording minutely many facts and rumors of interest. Naturally his 
writings were of this nature and he was often requested to publish 
them, yet so far as we know, only two sermons * did he allow to be 
printed. 

Thus lived this sturdy New England Puritan, an important factor 
in the growth of the little community and in the lives of the people, 
making the church the social, political and religious centre of the 
town. 

He died May 8, 1789, and was buried in the old Sutton graveyard, 
where his grateful people erected a monument to his memory. 

Elizabeth, wife of Rev. David Hall, born " Decem'' y^ 2 day : 
1713",! was the daughter of Dr. Jonathan and Rebecca (Bulkeley) 
Prescott of Concord. Dr. Jonathan^ Prescott was born April 5, 
1677, and married July 9, 1701, Rebecca, daughter of Hon. Peter 
and Rebecca (Wheeler) Bulkeley of Concord, who was born " 24. 6. 
81 ".* Jonathan settled in Concord, Mass., where he was successful 
as a physician and skillful surgeon. He died October 28, 1729, 
greatly lamented. He was son of Capt. Jonathan^ Prescott by his 
second wife Elizabeth Hoar. Capt. Jonathan, born perhaps at 
Watertown, settled in Lancaster where he married first, Aug. 3, 

1670, Dorothy , who was the mother of three children. After 

her death, he removed to Concord and there married Dec. 23, 1675, 
Elizabeth, daughter of John Hoar, Esq., a lawyer of Concord, and 
granddaughter of Charles Hoar, Jr., of Gloucester, England. $ She 
died Sept. 25, 1687, and on Dec. 18, 1689, he married third, 
Rebecca, widow of Hon. Peter Bulkeley and daughter of Joseph

and Sarah (Goldston) [Merriam]t Wheeler. After her death, he 
married his fourth wife, Aug. 18, 17 18, Ruth Brown, who survived 
him and died Feb. 9, 1740. He was a farmer and a man of ability, 
representing the town of Concord in the General Assembly from 
1692-95 and '97-99 inclusive, and in 17 12 and '13. He was also 
captain in the militia, and his house was fortified as a garrison-house 
in 1676. He died Dec. 5, 1721. His father was John' Prescott who 
was one of the very first settlers of Lancaster, Mass. 

A descendant of a line of honest and intelligent people, it is not 
surprising that Elizabeth should partake of those sterling qualities, 
which fitted her so well for the duties of a minister's wife. She was 
loving and entered sympathetically into her husband's plans. He 
often mentions his " dear wife " as accompanying him on his trips to 
Boston and elsewhere. She was also a faithful mother, constantly 
working for the temporal needs of her growing family, by no means 
an easy task ; their spiritual condition too, caused her much anxiety. 
She did not relinquish her labors when they were older and mar- 
ried, but visited them as frequently as possible, and often gathered 
them all back into the old homestead. When her eldest son's wife 
died, she took the motherless little one to her home to love and 
cherish, and made it the home again, for the time being, for the sor- 
rowing husband. Perhaps after all, the best description and the 
highest praise I could give is that she was a true type of the New 
England mother. She died Aug. 7, 1803, and was also buried in 
the old Sutton cemetery. The children of Rev. David and Eliza- 
beth Hall were : —

PLYMOUTH COUNTY MARRIAGES. 

The publication of the Plymouth County Marriages in this mag- 
azine will be suspended for the present. These records were begun 
in the March number of 1898, seven installments having appeared 
covering the years 1692 to 1746, and great care has been exercised 
in giving an accurate and literal transcript of the originals at Ply- 
mouth. The publication of the balance of these marriages, covering 
the years 1747 to 1788, has been forestalled by the Rev. Frederic 
W. Bailey of New Haven, who has recently issued a volume contain- 
ing these later records and a part of those already published in the 
Advertiser, It is not the mission of the Advertiser to republish what 
has appeared elsewhere in print, even though the work be as poorly 
done as in this case, while so many of our early records remain 
unprinted. 

The student of Pilgrim genealogy will find literal transcripts of the 
marriage records during the Colony period printed in the Plymouth 
Colony Records, the larger part appearing in the eighth volume. 
From the end of the Colony period to 1746, the marriages for the 



126 Announcement. — Book Notes. 

County are found in the first and second volumes of the Advertiser, 
also in a reprint from the same which contains the marriages only, 
and, which may be had of the publisher at fifty cents per copy. 
After 1746, Mr, Bailey's book will serve as a guide to the marriages 
before 1788. 

The marriages from an entire volume of the Court records — an 
unnumbered one — covering the years 1723 to 1737 are omitted from 
Mr. Bailey's volume. A few scattering marriages are also omitted, 
and a number of slips like Derrow and Deirow for Decrow appear in 
his work. 



ANNOUNCEMENT. 



The vital records of two more towns (Rochester and Freetown, 
Mass.) will be commenced in the March and June numbers of the 
Advertiser for next year. These, with those already in progress, will 
enable the editor to give a variety wide enough to make this maga- 
zine almost indispensable to all interested in Old Colony families, 
as well as continue the policy of devoting a larger proportion of 
its space to vital records than is done by any other magazine in 
America. 



BOOK NOTES. 



Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Illinois. Publication Number 
One. [Edited by Tyler Seymour Morris.] Nineteen hundred. 8vo, pp. 173. 

This volume in the originality of its arrangement and in the quality of its 
illustrations, binding and paper, has those peculiar excellences that mark the 
former works of Mr. Morris. The larger part of the book is devoted to full page 
tabular pedigrees, each of which illustrates the descent of some member of the 
society from a Mayflower Pilgrim. These pedigrees give the full dates of birth, 
marriage and death, and in footnotes the authorities are given. This publication 
of detailed lines of eligibility is commendable, yet it may bring to grief, through 
the work of some zealous critic, some of these claimants to Mayflower honor. 
Coincidences of names, localities, and occupations, with other circumstantial 
evidence, which sometimes lead even the most cautious searcher to wrong con- 
clusions, make it hazardous to give pubUcity to the lines of descent upon which 
membership in the patriotic hereditary societies depend. The genealogical data 
in this book, having been accepted by the historians of this organization, will be 
of great value to aspirants for membership in the Society of Mayflower Descend- 
ants in filling out the early generations on their application papers. 

Besides the tables of descent, this book contains a brief history of the Illinois 
Society, with its constitution, by-laws, ofticers and members; "The Compact" 
and its signers, numbered as in Prince's New England Chronology, and illustrated 
by a facsimile of Bradford's copy ; Gov. Bradford's two lists of those who came 
over first in 1620 and their families, illustrated by a facsimile of one page of the 
original ; addresses of Walter Morton Rowland, Dr. James Nevins Hyde, and 
Prof. Victor C. Alderson before the Illinois Society ; and a list of reference books 
relating to Pilgrim history and genealogy. 

The other illustrations are, portraits of Walter Morton Howland, Governor 
of the Society and Gov. Edward Winslow ; views of " The first Pilgrim Spring ", 
the Manor Houses and the Churches at Scrooby, and at Austei-field, the Standish 
House and the Standish Monument at Duxbury, " Com Hill at Truro " and the 



Book Notes, 127 

Pabodie House at Little Compton ; and facsimiles of the first page of Bradford's 
History and of the wills of Mary (Chilton) Winslow and Peregrine White. 
An index completes this useful, attractive and substantial volume. 

Book A. Records of the Town of Swansea. 1662 to lyo^* Edited by Alverdo Hay- 
ward Mason. East Braintree, Mass. 1900. 4to. pp. 82. Price $1.25. 

Mr. Mason has made accessible, and preserved from further loss, what remains 
of the vital statistics in the first volume, commonly known as " Book A ", of the 
records of the town of Swansea, Massachusetts. More than this, he has repro- 
duced, as nearly as type permits, the original volume, line for line. This careful 
preservation of the arrangement has a special value to the critical student, who 
does not have access to the original, which may be shown by the study of a single 
birth — that of Hannah Bosworth — recorded in this volume. 

" Hanna the daughter of Jonathan Bosworth was born on the 51 of Novem- 
ber 1663 " the record reads at Swansea, but the town clerk's return at Plymouth, 
while agreeing with the day and month, differs ten years in the year, making the 
date 1673. The copy of Swansea records returned to Plymouth for the year 1673, 
signed by John Myles, Junir, Towne Clarke, (printed in Plymouth Colony Rec- 
ords, vol. 8, p. 48) is headed " A List of such Marriages, Beirthes, and Burialls, as 
were brought into the Towne Clarke of Swansey, to be recorded, from the 27th 
of February, 1672, to this prsent February the 27, 1673 "• I^'' favor of 1673 
being the year of Hannah Bosworth's birth we have the very strong evidence of 
this original copy, giving that date, signed by the town clerk and made out at the 
end of the year in question. Book A of the Swansea records, because of its 
peculiar alphabetical arrangement under Christian names, has been generally 
regarded as a compilation from earlier records, and hence less likely to be correct 
than the return at Plymouth. 

A minute examination of the arrangement of the records in Mr. Mason's 
book reveals the fact that the entries of births after the latter part of 1673 
appear, with few exceptions, in chronological order, while they do not before 
that date. This suggests that John Myles, Jr., who was then town clerk, began 
during the year 1673, this peculiar arrangement which has been supposed to be a 
compilation, and that this is his original record, and consequently equal to the copy 
at Plymouth as an authority. This suggestion becomes almost an absolutely cer- 
tainty by the discover}' that he and his successor, Nicholas Tanner, were the only 
clerks whose returns at Plymouth are arranged alphabetically under the Christian 
names. Admitting that John Myles, Jr., is the authority for both dates, the ques- 
tion as to the date of Hannah Bosworth's birth is easily settled by outside evi- 
dence. 

In view of the fact that Jonathan Bosworth had a child (Jabez) born Febru- 
ary 14, 1673, '^"hose birth is omitted from the record at Plymouth, it is reasonable 
to suppose that Mr. Myles, in making up that return, carelessly copied the birth of 
Hannah instead of Jabez as the child born that year. It is worth noticing that 
the same item follows the birth of Hannah in both records, also that the birth of 
Jabez is only three months and nine days later than the date given in the return 
at Plymouth for Hannah's birth. This latter fact alone is sufficient to show 
where the error is. There is no record of the settlement of Jonathan Bosworth's 
estate. 

According to the Swansea records, Hannah Bosworth married Nathaniel 
Jenks November 4, 1686. As no other Hannah Bosworth has yet been found, 
who could have married Nathaniel Jenks on that date, we have also the evidence 
of marriageable age in favor of the eariier date of birth. 

Those descendants of Nathaniel Jenks who have patiently tried to solve the 
riddle of these conflicting dates in the hope of finding a Mayflower ancestor 
through Hannah Howland, mother of Hannah Bosworth, are indebted to Mr. 
Mason for the very valuable sen'ice rendered towards discrediting this particular 
record at Plymouth by the publication of these records in their original arrangement. 

Every genealogist who has occasion to consult this book will be indebted to 
Mr. Mason for the painstaking care bestowed upon it. * * *

William'*, born December 3, 1721, who married Sept. 10, 1750, Abigail Gray

K NEM EDITION OF 

SOLDIERS IN KING PHILIP'S WAR. 

By Rev. GEORGE MADISON BODGE. 

The new edition of this work is now ready ; a limited number of copies 
being available to those who apply at once. Much new material has been 
added, including lists of Grantees of the " Narragansett Townships," never 
before published, and an appendix of twenty-five pages containing lists of 
the Colonial Governors of the three colonies from 1620 to 1680, with rosters 
of officers, and lists of soldiers not previously mentioned. No well ordered 
American library is complete without this book. The volume is a handsome 
octavo of 520 pages, with complete indexes of names and places. Edges 
uncut ; material, printing and binding excellent. The lists of soldiers con- 
tain thousands of names. 

" Mr. Bodge's handsome volume is a monument of antiquarian industry and re- 
search, in the interest rather of genealogy than of history, as being the chief concern of 
the legion of recent patriotic societies like that of which our author is chaplain." — The 
Nation. 

Price, cloth, $6.00; half morocco, $7.00. Sent postpaid upon receipt of 
the price, by the author.
