PREFACE. 

First Edition 1877. 1U9658 



" Few families in the country have been more celebrated 
than the Cushings, and probably no other has furnished 
more Judges for our Probate, Municipal, and Supreme 
Courts. In all its branches it has been highly respectable, 
and it still maintains its ancient standing." — History of 
Hanover, Mass, by J. S. Barry, Boston, 1853. High 
X praise, but by no means undeserved, as the merest glance 
down the " bead roll of fame," as imperfectly transcribed 
in this work, will convince the most sceptical. The 
Genealogy of the dishing Family forms of itself almost a 
' synopsis of the colonizing and early settlement of the 
New England States and a portion at least of the Pro- 
vince of Quebec, and by that best and purest of its stock, 
the Puritans, Here we read, as in a^history, the mode of 
settlement; the organization of local and general offices 
for the proper and regular administration, civil and 
military, of the affairs of the colonies ; the origin of the 
causes which led to the memorable struggle for Indepen- 
dence of the British Colonies in America ; the difficulties 
to be contended with in the re-organization of the affairs 
of the young nation, its laws and government. In the 
halls of the Legislature, in the administration of the laws, 
in the arena of commerce and in all the religious contro- 
versies of the times in which they lived, the members ot 
this remarkable family appear almost pre-eminent. 

The scrupulous accuracy with which the Pilgrim Fathers 
recorded the births and marriages of the colonists makes 



4 PREFACE 

it a matter of no great difficulty in tracing the descendants 
of the early settlers down to at least the middle of the 
eighteenth century ; and from the exceptionally prominent 
part taken in all public matters by members of this family, 
their descent can be traced by nearly if not all of the name 
to the present day. The work now set forth is, for ought 
the author knows, the first issued with any pretensions to 
a general genealogical record. It is necessarily incom- 
plete in many of its details, and many precious fragments 
remain in his hand", for lack of the necessary links to 
connect them with the rest of the chain. 

LEMUEL CUSHING. 
Present Edition 1905. 

After the publication of the first edition Mr. Lemuel 
Cushing collected considerable material, intending to issue 
a more complete record, but at the time of his death, in 
1881, the work was still unfinished. 

In 190 1, in response to requests from various members 
of the family, it was decided to complete the task, and 
the present volume is the result of the succeeding four 
years' work. 

While much additional information has been gathered 
and the history of the family greatly extended, it must 
be admitted that the record is still in a measure incom- 
plete. This is due partly to the fact of the family being 
now scattered all over the United States and Canada, 
and partly because the work had to be done almost 
altogether by correspondence, the writer not having the 
necessary time and means to personally visit the various 
family centres. 

The scheme adopted is that which is in use by the 
New England Historical and Genealogical Society. The 



PREFACE 5 

figure which precedes the name of the head of a family 
refers back to the family of the immediate ancestor, where 
the same person is designated in the list of children- by 
the same number at the left of the Rom. in numeral. The 
Christian names and figures which are given in par- 
enthesis after the head of a family denote the ancestral 
line and generation in consecutive order. 

The record is given in the appendix of several uncon- 
nected branches of the family. Most of these are of 
families who have come to America during the past 
century, and who, while not immediately connected with 
the great American branch, doubtless sprang originally 
from the same stock. 

Prior to 1752 the year began on the 25th of March. 
In this year a change was made to the present system of 
reckoning the year from the 1st of January. Conse- 
quently in records of events happening prior to 1752 the 
"Old Style" has been used ; in the present volume all 
dates have been given according to the " New Style," and 
changes have been made in the dates taken from the 
records, wherever necessary to make them conform to the 
" New Style," e. g. the date of Matthew Cushing's (No. 8) 
baptism is given in the church records as 2 March, 1588, 
and this is corrected to 2 March, 1589. 

The authorities and sources of information utilized in 
compiling the book have been so numerous that it is im- 
possible to give them in detail. In brief, all the local 
histories of New England and American genealogies in 
the Boston Public Library, the Cambridge Library, and 
the Library of the New England Historical and Genealo- 
gical Society of Boston, have been reviewed and most of 
them have afforded various facts and details. Special 



6 PREFACE 

mention may, however.be made of the Historyof Hingham, 
1893, the Buckingham Genealogy 1892 and the New 
England Historical and Genealogical Register.as furnishing 
much valuable information. Besides these sources of infor- 
mation the town and church records of Hingham, Scituate, 
Rehoboth, Pembroke, Hull and many other places were 
also examined. The more recent history of the family has 
been furnished by many persons in the United Statesand 
Canada. As members of nearly all the branches given in 
this book have contributed information in regard to their 
own line, they cannot be mentioned by name. Among 
those who have rendered valuable assistance outside of 
their own line, the special thanks of the author are due 
to Mr. Charles C. Cushing (who kindly made many resear- 
ches in the Boston Libraries), Mrs. David Cushing of 
Hingham, Mass., Miss J. Mac C. Shaw of Boston, Tappan 
Adney, Esq. of New York City, Miss. C. E. Campbell of 
Schenectady, N.Y. and Arthur B. Paine, Esq. of Brook- 
line, Mass.

INTRODUCTION. 



The Name " Cushing." 

The derivation of the name is somewhat uncertain. 
The present form is used by all the American descendants 
of Matthew dishing who came to America in 1638, and 
was probably the established orthography for several 
generations before this, as the English and Irish branches 
use the same spelling. Before the sixteenth century, 
however, like most proper names, it was most variously 
written. For example, in various deeds, wills and charters 
still extant in Norfolk, Eng., referring to the direct lineal 
ancestors of Matthew, we find Cushyng, Cushin, Cushyn, 
Cusshyn, Cussheyn, Cusseyn, Cussyn, Cusyn, and Cosyn. 
Before the fourteenth century it was spelled Cusyn, Cosyn, 
or Cosseyn ; after this it is always spelt with a u and 



8 INTRODUCTION 

generally sh, e.g., Cussheyn, Cusshyn. The final g does 
not appear until 1500, when we find Cushyng, though 
Cushyn and Cushin are stiil frequent spellings. 

The theories advanced by certain authorities that the 
name is a corruption of MacOssian or MacAsswain, or 
that it is derived from the word ' Cush ' with the suffix 
' ing' (son of) may be mentioned as pure guess-work, 
altogether discredited by the above facts. There is no 
evidence that the name is Irish as some have asserted ; 
the Cushings of Ireland appear to have gone there in 
Cromwell's time. 

The late Mr. Frank Hamilton Cushing, to whose 
researches we are indebted for much of our knowledge of 
the earlier history of the Cushings, makes two sugges- 
tions : — 1st, that the name is derived from the Anglo- 
Norman designation of Cousin (Cosseyn or Cusseyn) ; or, 
2nd, that it arose from usage in connection with the land 
title of Cossey. Thus, in the ' Domesday ' of William 
the Conqueror, we find that " the ancient village and 
manor of Tokethorpe (Liter Flockthorpe) lying in the 
Forehoe hundred " was in several parts, " two of which 
belonged to Cossey." This same manor of Flockthorpe 
was possessed by the Cushings for several generations 
thereafter. 

The Cushing Arms. 

The Cushings of Norfolk, Eng., were entitled to bear 
arms for many successive generations through their hold- 
ing the manors of Chosely, Hardingham, etc. During 
this time of course the arms were repeatedly ' differenced ' 
by different branches. Therefore the attempt to ascertain 
the exact coat-of-arms borne by the branch which came

C^^? 




to America is accompanied by some difficulty, and several 
arms diflft ring slightly in certain details have been used 
and published by different authorities. 

'I he original arms of the 
Gushing family were undoubt- 
edly "gules an eagle displayed 
argent" (Fig. i). These were 
the arms of Roger Cossyn, Wil- 
liam Cusseyn and others until 
John (No. 4). From this all the 
others have been derived. Later, 
by a marriage with an heiress, 
the arms were quartered. So far, it has been impossible 
to identify the family from which this quartering was de- 
rived. The marriage probably occurred some time about 
1500. In the Heraldic Visitation of the County of Nor- 
folk, England, made in the year 1563, in which the mar- 
riage is given of John Oldham, Shimpling, of Norfolk, 
with Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Francis Cushin (page 
19) of Hingham, Norfolk, the dishing arms are described 
as follows: — "Gules, an eagle displayed argent; quarter 
ing, gules, three right hands torn from the wrists, a canton 
chequery or and az." Rased on this description, which 
is obviously slightly indefinite as regards the position of 
the hands, we have the following forms : — 

First, that given as a frontispiece to this volume and 
considered by the writer as most authoritative. This is 
the form advocated by the late H. G. Somerby of England 
as the result of several years" research in the records and 
deeds of Norfolk County, and it is quoted in the Register 
of the New England Historical and Genealogical Society.

INTRODUCTION 




Fig. 2. 



As to the position of the hand behind the canton, when 
not otherwise expressly specified three hands would be 
placed two in chief and one in base, and a canton used to 
be placed on a shield without altering in the least the 
arrangement of the original emblem. 

Second, the shield used in the 
first edition of this work. (Fig. 2) 
For this arrangement we can 
find no authority and are forced 
to the conclusion that the posi- 
tion of the hands and the color- 
ing of half the shield argent are 
due to the artist's ideas only. 
In fact, the late Lemuel Cushing 
acknowledged that it was inaccurate. The cut is quoted 
here because through the last edition it has been given 
wide circulation. 

Third, the arms found on the 
tombstone of Lt.-Gov. Thomas 
Cushing, in the Granary Burying 
Ground, Boston, Mass., dated 
1788 (Fig. 3). These are also 
the arms in the " Gore Roll 
of Arms" (Heraldic Journal, 
Vol. I, 1865), They are espe- 
cially worthy of note as being 
the earliest arms of which we have any record as being 
borne by an American Cushing. Unfortunately, no au- 
thority can be found for the omission of the third hand, 
and it is almost certain that the carving was made

from a too hasty description ; the third hand, which is 
partly covered by the canton, being accidentally omitted. 

Fourth, the Herald's CoUeg-e 
London, Eng. was applied to for 
the correct Cushing arms, and 1 hey 
furnished the accompanying shield 
(Fig. 4), quoting as their authority 
the above mentioned Heraldic 
Visitation. The Government 
Office of Heraldry, London, is 
responsible for the following state- 
ment : — " No crest is found for the family but the quarter- 
ing is that of Dennier, an heiress of which family must 
have married into that of Cushing ; Cushing, gules an 
eagle displayed argent ; Dennier, gules three dexter 
hands couped or, in bend sinister, a canton compony of 
8 az. and or. 

Fifth, the arms used by ^— 
several American branches of 
the family for several genera- 
tions (Fig 5). These are the 
ones recognized in Matthew's 
American Armoury and Blue 
Book and in Crozier's General 
Armoury 1904. As noted 
above, there is no authoritative 
record of the position of the 
hands in the quartering, so this arrangement may be 
justifiable. We can only remark that the oldest carvings 
or deeds always shew the hands bendwise and not erect. 

These differences that have been quoted must not be 
considered as throwing any doubt on the authenticity of 




Fig. 5. 



1 2 INTRODUCTION 



the Cushing Arms. This has been acknowledged by 
every authority on heraldry, the direct descent from the 
Cuahings of Norfolk whose arms are recognized in 
Heraldic Visitations is enough to establish their right. 
The slight variations are due to the original inaccurate 
descriptions which permit of variation according to the 
artist's ideas. 

Crest and Motto. 

These of course are not hereditary and may be 
assumed by all who consider themselves entitled to 
legally bear arms. 

The only crest widely used by the Cushings is that 
in the frontispiece, which may described as follows : — 
"Two lions' gambs erased sable suporting a ducal coro- 
net or, from which hangs a human heart gules." This is 
the one found on the Granary Burying Ground tablet. 

The motto " Virtute et numine"(by valor and divine 
aid) has also been in general use. 



GENEALOGY 



EARLY ANCESTRY 



The remote ancestry of the dishing family has been the 
subject of a number of investigations which have succeeded 
in tracing the family to very early times. The first work of 
importance was undertaken by the Hon. Caleb Cushing. 
He traced the family to Norfolk Co., Eng., and finding him- 
self unable to give the necessary time to the research, engag- 
ed the late H. G. Somerby of London, a well known genea- 
logist, to continue it. Mr. Somerby entered on the task 
with enthusiasm, as evidenced by his letters, some of which 
are in the writer's possession. During the years 1851-1853 
he examined the ancient manuscripts in the British Museum, 
the Subsidy Rolls and Heraldic Visitations for Norfolk, the 
parish registers and ancient deeds and wills connected with 
various estates and mauors in Hardingham, Hingham, and 
other places. His efforts were crowned with unexpected 
success ; he established the fact that the Cushings were one 
of the leading families in Norfolk County during the 15th 
and 1 6th centuries, being lords of numerous manors, 
and he published his results in several important papers 
before historical and genealogical societies in Great Britain. 

The late Mr. Lemuel Cushing, having received the papers 
and correspondence relating to the subject from the Hon. 
Caleb Cushing, continued the work, adding many details.and 
published the whole in the first edition of the Genealogy of 
the Cushing Family in 1877. In this work he traces the 
family back to Thomas Cushing of Hardingham, Norfolk 
Co., who lived in the early part of the 15th century. 



I 4 THE GENEALOGY OF THE 



After Mr. Lemuel Cushing's death, Mr. Frank Hamilton 
dishing continued the investigation, assisted by various 
recent publications on the early history of Norfolk County, 
and obtained valuable evidence of the descent of the Cushings 
from the DeLimisi family who owned numerous manors in 
Norfolk County in the nth and 12th centuries. His early 
decease interrupted the work, but, through the kindness of 
his widow, the papers containing the results of his work 
were submitted to the present writer. As one or two links 
of the chain are still missing, it was thought best to publish 
Mr. Frank Hamilton Cushing's manuscript verbatim, in the 
hope that at some future time the work may be completed, 
and to commence the genealogy of the family at a point from 
which the actual descent from father to son rests on direct 
documentary evidence. 

Mr. Cushing's manuscript is as follows : 

" In the Scandinavian Sagas relating to the latter half 
of the Kighth Century — 750-800, A.D. — which may be re- 
garded as the period in which reliable Norse History begins, 
frequent mention may be found of the Viking Hrolf Nefja 
Jarl and his ancestors inThrondjem and the Maeras of Nor- 
way ; and in later centuries, of his descendants in Normandy 
and England as well. 

According to these Sagas, and the earliest Norman 
accounts, Hrolf Nefja, (1), had at least one son Malahjulc, 
(2); and a daughter, Hild or Ragnhild. The daughter mar- 
ried Rognvald Maera-Jarl, who, in return for assistance 
rendered by him to Harald (or Harold) Fair Hair, in the 
conquest of Norway, was made chief ruler over not only the 
two Maeras, but also Ramsdal. They had three sons and 
a daughter. The second son, Gongu Hrolf (Walking 
Rolt), became early a great Viking leader, especially in the 
East. Returning from one of his expeditions soon alter 
Harald's conquest, he committed acts of depredation in 



CUSHING FAMILY l 5 



Vikin. King Harald, who was then in Vikin, was very 
angry when he heard of this, for he had strictly forbidden 
robbery within his land. He therefore announced at a 
Thing that he made Hrolf an outlaw from Norway. When 
Hrolt's mother Hild heard this she went on behalf of her 
family to the King to ask for pardon for Hrolf; but the King 
was so angry that her prayers were of no avail. Hence 
Hrolf, accompanied by his uncle Malahjulc, as Councillor, 
and a numerous following of disaffected Hersirs sailed for 
the Hebrides ; whence the}- made conquests, ultimately gain- 
ing from Valland (now France), about 912 A. D., the 
great Jarls' realm, known soon after as Normaudi. 

Thus Hrolf, so well known in later history as Rollo, 
became the founder and first Earl or Duke ol Normandy, es- 
tablishing, according to nearness of kin with his own and the 
families of his chief leaders, the great Ruda-jarls (or feudal 
nobility of Ruen), ancestors of the Sovereign families and 
Norman Barons of Normandy and England alike, in later 
centuries. 

In this manner Malahjulc became possessed of Toesini 
and Conches ; and is referred to in old records as Malahul- 
cinus de Toesini (or Toedini). He had issue Hugo de Tcvsini, 
(3), who became lord of Cavalcamp in Nuestria, and had two 
sons, Ralf '(4), and Hugo, Archbishop of Rouen, 942-980. 
Hugo gave to his brother Ralf the estates of Toesini, which 
descended therefore to his son Ralph{$) or Ranulf of Apulia, 
celebrated for his conquests of the latter and other places; and 
so, to Ralf (6) his son, who was appointed Castellan of 
Tillieres jointly with Nigel, Viscount ofCoutances, in ion. 
Ralf had issue, Roger de Toesini, surnamed D'Espagne, on 
account of his prowess against the Saracens in Spain, pro- 
genitor of the DeTcesinis, Hereditary Standard-bearers of 
Normandy, Barons of Toesini and Conches, and 
of Stafford and Belvoir in England, ancestors of 



1 6 THE GENEALOGY OF THE 

the English houses of Cholmondeley, Kgerton, Grisley 
and others, and Hugh de Titsini (7), (Brother of Roger de 
Espagne), surnamed de L,imesi (Limesay) from his Norman 
Seigneurie. He was living in 1060. He had several sons who 
accompanied the Conqueror (to whom they were related as 
nephews through their mother who was William the Con- 
queror's half-sister) ; among them were Ralf (8) and Bald- 
rick, progenitor of Scottish Lindsays. William gave to Ralf 
the barony of Oxburg, or Oxenburg in Norfolk, and 41 
other manors in several counties with the lands of Christina 
one of the sisters of Prince Edgar, whom Ralf married. 

They had Ralf (9) who married Hadewise and had Alan 
(io), who^e sou Gerard (11) married Amy, (daughter of 
Trian de Hornelade of Bidun Limisi), whose sou John mar- 
ried Alice, daughter of Robert of Harcourt, died in 1 198 and 
left a son, Hugh, who is said to have died without issue 
some time after 1223. Through John's sister (and 
co-heir) part of the barony passed by marriage with David 
de Eimisey to the Lindsays, or Lindseys of Scotland. 

^?«^/ r (i2isurnamed Le Cusyn or Le Cosyn de Limisi, is said 
to have been a younger son of Gerard, brother of John de 
Limisi, since he is found holding Choseley in the land party 
of England about this time, and since his arms, with 
merely a change of tincture, were the same as those of the de 
Limisis. From him were Roger (13) and Richard Cosyn, 
from one of whom (probably the former) Galfridus Cusyn 
was descended. 

Galfridus, Get aid or Geoff t ey Cusyn (14) was born in 
Norfolk county, England, in the latter part of the thirteenth 
century. He possessed estates in Hardingham, Norfolk 
County, for which in 1327 he was assessed to the King's 
subsidies, Edward First."

2 THE GENEALOGY OP THE 



in which year the parish register of Hingham begins. He 
married Susan Hawes at Hardingham, 2 June 1583. He 
was buried at Hingham, Rug., 2 March 1615. His wife was 
buried 26 April 1641. He was probably one of the first 
of the Cushings to embrace the Protestant faith, for the wills 
of his father and eldest brother are not in the Protestant 
form. 

Children : 

i. Theophiujs baptized 4 Nov. 1584. He came to New Eng- 
land in 1633, in the ship Griffin, in company with Gover- 
nor Haynes and the eminent Puritan divines, Cotton and 
Hooker. For a time he resided on Haynes' farm with 
his friend (afterwards the celebrated Governor Haynes) 
as his adviser and secretary. When his younger brother 
Matthew, following his example, came to New England, 
Theophilus, who appears never to have married, settled 
with him in Hingham, Mass. He was blind for 25 years 
before his death, which occurred 24 March 1679. 

ii. Bridget, baptized 19 February 1586. Married, 15 July 1627, 
George More. 
8. iii. Matthew baptized 2 March 1589.

CUSHING FAMILY 2 1 



AMERICAN AND CANADIAN 
DESCENDANTS. 



8. MATTHEW ' CUSHING, son of Peter and Susan 
(Hawes) dishing, "was baptized in Hardingham, Eng., 
2 March, 1589. He married, 5 August, 1613, Nazareth, 
daughter of Henry Pitcher, of the famous family of Ad- 
miral Pitcher of England. She was baptized 30 Oct., 1586, 
and died in Hingham, Mass., 6 Jan., 1682. Matthew 
Cushing died 30 Sept., 1660. For the first fifty years of his 
life he lived in Hardingham and Hingham, Norfolk County, 
Eng., until 1638, when with his wife and five children, and 
his wife's sister (Widow Francis Riecroft, who died a few- 
weeks after their arrival ) he embarked in the ship ' ' Diligent' ' 
of Ipswich, 350 tons, John Martin, master, which sailed 
from Gravesend, 26 April, 163S, with 133 passengers, among 
whom was Robert Peck, M. A., Rector of the parish of 
Hingham, Eng. The immediate occasion of their departure 
seems to have been trouble in ecclesiastical matters. Their 
rector, doubtless with the sympathy and aid of most of those 
constituting the emigrating party, had pulled down the rails 
of chancel and altar, and levelled the latter a foot below the 
church, as it remains to this day. Being prosecuted by 
Bishop Wren, he left the Kingdom, together with his friends 
— who sold their estates at half their real value. The party, 
having landed at Boston, Mass., 10 Aug., 1638, immediately 
proceeded to their destination, Hingham. M;b\. so named 
after the name of the former home of the Cushing family in 
England. At a town meeting held 163S, a house lot of five

acres, first below Pear Tree Hill, on Bachelor (Main) St., 
was given to Matthew Gushing, and it continued in the 
posssession of the family until 1887. He was early engaged 
in the public affairs of the town, became a deacon in Rev. 
Hobart's church, and was the progenitor of many eminent 
descendants. It is now a pretty well established fact that, 
with the exception of a few families who have come to this 
country during the past century, all the persons bearing the 
surname of Cushing in the United States and Canada are 
his direct lineal descendants. His will, which was a verbal 
one, was written after his decease by his children, who, un- 
der date of 15 Nov., 1660, pray that Daniel Cushing, Esq., 
their oldest brother, may be appointed administrator of their 
father's estate. (For his will see the appendix.)

land was granted to him by the Town of Hingham in 1665. 
He became a freeman in 167 1 , was an active magistrate and 
for many years Town Clerk of Hingham, and by the faith- 
ful discharge of the duties of this last office rendered inva- 
luable service to the modern antiquary. From 16S2, and

and for many years after. In the years 1680, 1682 and [695,

died in Seituate, Mass., 9 March, 1679. John dishing died 
in Seituate 31 March, 1708. Coming out from England in 
1638, he appears to have remained in Hingham, Mass., until 
after his father's death in 1660. In 1657 he, together with 
Matthias Briggs, purchased for ^120 the Varsall Estate at 
"Belle House Neck", Seituate, which consisted of 120 
acres with house and barns. He did not move there, how- 
ever, until about 1662. The land on which the farm was 
situated was always known as ' ' Belle House Neck " , a name 
given to the place in consequence of a bell that hung at the 
house there, for a century, to give an alarm to the neigh- 
boring country in case of the approach of Indians. In 1663 
he was surveyor of highways and in 1667, receiver of excises. 
He w r as deputy to the colony in 1674, and was often re-

families dwelt in it. For seven years his salary was $200 
per annum, and thereafter to the end of his life $222.22. 
Besides this he had a settlement of $444.44 to enable him to 
purchase a farm, erect buildings, etc. He loved music 
and was himself a good singer. He was dignified in manner 
yet social with all. He was a man of large stature and frame. 
In his last years with his flowing white locks and faded worn 
features his appearance was truly venerable. He was much 
beloved by the good people of the town, and his life was so 
irreproachable that he had the true respect of all. His in- 
fluence being that of a gentle, exemplary, and faithful teacher 
and friend was unchallenged, and extending through so many 
years had an almost unconscious moulding power, which 
has been very great upon the town."

leaving no descendants. Graduated from Harvard College 
in 1751, A. M. Yale 1753, L.L.D., ^85. He was Preceptor 
of the public Grammar School in Roxbnry in 1752, and 
studied law under J. Gridley. In 1755, he commenced prac- 
tice in Pownalboro', which then comprehended the towns 
of Dresden and Wiscassett, residing with his brother Charles, 
and continued his practice there until elevated to the Bench. 
Of all the Judges and Officers of the Courts in the three 
counties and of the County Officers he was the solitary law- 
yer, he stood alone as an educated lawyer in this spacious 
territory and the first who settled in Maine. He was one of 
the six lawyers in Maine who were raised to the degree of 
Barrister. He was for a time Attorney General of Mass. ; 
in 1768, was appointed the first Judge of Probate in Lincoln 
County and in 1772 made Judge of the Superior Court. At 
the re-organization of the Superior Court, Mass., 1777, he was 
appointed Chief Justice of the Court, the first who held the 
office under the free Government of the Commonwealth and 
labored with great success in establishing the judicial system 
on a firm basis. He became Judge of the Supreme Judicial 
Court, 1782. At the beginning of the Revolution, he alone 
among the high in office supported the rights of the Revolu- 
tionists He was Vice-President of the Mass. Convention 
which ratified the U.S. Constitution in 1788. He was 
the first Chief Justice of the State under this Constitution, 
and at the organization of the U. S. Government in 1789 he 
was selected by Washington as an Associate Justice of theU.S. 
Supreme Court, in which office he eminently shone. While As- 
sociate Judge, he was accompanied in his circuit by Mrs. Cush- 
ing ; he drove a phaeton and a pair of horses and was followed 
by his negro man "Prince' ' on horseback. During the mission 
of Chief Justice John Jay, Envoy Extraordinary to the Court 
of Great Britain, negotiating the famous treaty with that 
Country, Judge Cushing presided, and as Senior Justice ad- 




Chief Justice William Cushing 



CUSHING FAMILY 9 3 



ministered the oath of office to Washington at the beginning 
of his second term as President, 4 March, 1793. In 1794 he 
was a candidate for Governor of Mass. , a rival of Samuel 
Adams. John Adams said of him : "I shall be happier if 
dishing succeeds, and the State will be more prudently con- 
ducted." In 1796, after Judge Jay's resignation, he was 
nominated by Washington to the Chief Justice office, and this 
offer was unanimously confirmed b) r the Senate, 27 Jan., 
1796, and on the evening of the same day was invited to a 
large dinner part) r at the President's. As he entered the 
room, Washington from the head of the table turned to him 
and said with great impressiveness ; "The Chief Justice of 
the United States will please take his seat on my right." It 
is said that this was the first intimation that Cushing had of 
his selection. Nothing but a confidence in his ability and in 
his unshaken integrity could have united contending parties 
on that occasion ; but notwithstanding this extraordinary 
expression of confidence, he declined the office on account of 
infirm health, but continued on the bench until 18 10, when 
he had prepared an instrument of resignation, but was called 
to resign life. He was a man of tall and dignified presence, 
and as he moved along the streets with his cocked hat, bush 
wig and small clothes, he made an imposing appearance 
which attracted general attention. He was the last Chief 
Justice who wore the large wig of the English Judges. As 
a Judge he was eminently qualified by his learning and not 
less by his unshaken integrity and deliberate temper. It is 
said of him in 1801, that he performed the duties of his high 
office with order and perspicuity and guided the bar with 
mild, though commanding dignity. In private life he was 
all that was amiable, always ready to instruct by useful dis- 
course and to make his friends happy with his cheerfulness. 
He diligently collected works of taste and (if we may judge 
by the numerous notes written with his own hand in mar- 



94 THE GENEALOGY OF THE 



gius) he read with the greatest care. He was a founder and 
member of the Americin Academy of Arts and Sciences. He 
was a learned theologian, well acquainted with the controver- 
sies of the daj 7 , and though far from gathering heat in those 
controversies, was conspicuously on the side of liberal Chris- 
tianity. As an exemplary Christian, he was irreproachable, 
and as a public character, he is universally acknowledged to 
have stood in the first rank of his countrymen. 

A massive granite boulder marks the spot of his burial on 
" Belle House Neck " in Scituate. 

The pastel miniatures ot which the two accompanying por- 
traits are copies were made at General Washington's request 
by James Sharpless when in Philadelphia in 1796, together 
with two pot traits of General Washington and John Adams, 
all four of which were presented to Madam dishing when 
finished. This portrait of Chief Justice William dishing 
corresponds perfectly with the description which Mr. Deane 
wrote of him in History of Scituate. Mr. Sharpless, when 
in America, made a number of portraits of distinguished 
people. These are still valued for their character and truth. 

130. CHARLES 5 CUSHING (John ^ Matthew ' ) was 
born in Scituate, Mass., 13 Aug., 1734. He married, 25 
Aug., 1768, Elizabeth, sister of Governor Increase Sumner. 
She was born 14 June, 1743, and died 31 May, 1817. He 
died 7 Nov., 18 10. Graduated from Harvard College in 1755. 
He was educated as a lawyer, and appointed first Sheriff of Lin- 
coln Co., which office beheld both before and during the Revo- 
lution, and also for many years after. He resided at Pown- 
alboro' and in 1776, when the Maine Militia was reorganized, 
was appointed to command the Eastern Regiment, with the 
title of Co'onel. In January 1777, he was made Brigadier 
for Lincoln Co. He made himself especially obnoxious to 
the loyalists by his vigilance in the discharge of his duties as 
sheriff and military officer, and towards the close of the war,

in 1781, he (then a Brigadier General) was seized at night 
by a loyalist party under John Jones, a violent Tory, taken 
from his bed, compelled to hurry on his clothes and was car- 
ried away to the British army at Castine, where he was 
retained for some time as a prisoner. His functions as She- 
riff and Brigadier General seem to have ceased soon after 
this time when he removed to Boston and he next appears as 
Clerk of the Courts in Suffolk and Nantucket Counties 
in 1783, which office he held to his death, in 1S10. The fact 
of his occupying responsible public stations from the age of 
26 to his death continuously both under the royal and repu- 
blican governments, a period of 50 years, is sufficient proof 
of his ability, faithfulness and integrity. He was a gentle- 
man worthy of his distinguished ancestors.

the Records of Hanover, we read that ,c Capt. Joseph dish- 
ing was among the representatives from Hanover to the 
great meeting held 26 Sept., 1774, at Plympton, of delegates 
from every town in Plymouth Co. ' ' At this Congress, Nathan 
and Joseph dishing were of a committee to draft resolutions 
and remonstrances against the encroachments of the Parlia- 
ment and King, which resolutions were unanimously adop- 
ted ; and on the Journals of the three first Provincial Con- 
gresses, held in Salem, Concord, Cambridge and Watertown, 
in 1774-75, there is mentioned as a delegate, a " Col. dish- 
ing " who took an active and prominent part in all the 
proceedings. A ' ' Joseph Cushing ' ' was on the Committee 
of Correspondence and Safety, of Hanover, for 1776-7 and 
1779. Sept. 17. 1776, Col. Joseph dishing with a bod}- of 
Mass. Militia reinforced the Rhode Island Regiment at that 
place (R. I.), (Arnold's History of Rhode Island). In 1777, 
there was a regiment styled " Col. Cushing's Regiment " 
which arrived at Bennington soon after the battle at that 
place, and one company at least, reached Bennis Heights on 
the day of the battle. All these references are doubtless 
connected with this Joseph. At a still later period 
when peace had been declared and order restored he 
was appointed Judge of Probate for the County of Plymouth, 
as a token of gratitude and esteem for his services. He was 
Capt. of the 1st Mass. Regiment and Sub-Inspector to the 1st 
Mass. Brigade for the years 178 1-2, and held the rank of 
Brigadier General.

Fellow of the American Academy. 

Representative to the General Court in 1761, re-elected in 
1762 and up to 1769 inclusive ; was elected Speaker of the 
General Court, 26 May, 1768, and was Speaker of the 
House of Representatives from 1766 to 1774 inclusive, and 
rose to higher honors in the State than either his father or 
grandfather. On iS Dec, 1765, he was appointed with 
others a committee to sign and present a Memorial to the 
Governor in Council, protesting against the shutting up of 
the Courts of Law and other infringements upon the liber- 
ties of the people. He was friend and co-worker in the 
patriot cause with Adams, Otis, and Warren. When Otis 
who had been chosen Speaker was negatived by the govern- 
ment (in 1764) he was elected in his place, filling it until 
1774, when he was a member of the Provincial Congress, 
and of the Congress which met at Philadelphia. On his 
return he was elected to the Council ; was Commissary- 
general from 1775 to 1779, (see interesting letter from him 
to John Hancock, dated 3 May, 1776, to be found in Histo- 
rical Magazine, Boston, i860, p. 345) ; Judge of the Court 
of Common Pleas, and of Probate, in Suffolk Co., in 1777 ; 
declined a seat in the Continental Congress, in 1779, and 
was Lieut.- Governor of Mass. under Hancock and Bowdoiu, 
from 1779 until his death, and Acting-Governor in 1785. 
His signature being affixed to all public papers, as Speaker 
of the House, caused him to be regarded in Great Britain as 
the leader of the Whigs in this country. In Dr. Johnson's 
pamphlet " Taxation no Tyranny ", one object of the Ame- 



104 THE GENEALOGY OF THE 

ricans is said to be "to adorn the brows of Mr. Cushing 
with a diadem." He was the devoted friend and counsellor 
of Hancock, and the friend and correspondent of Franklin, 
from whom he received the letters of Hutchison and others, 
that produced so great effect at that time. He was Com- 
missioner of the Society in London for Propagating the Gos- 
pel in New England, and one of the founders of the American 
Academy of Arts and Sciences. "He was moderate and con- 
ciliatory in character, his good sense and sound judgment, 
the urbanity of his manners, his universal good character, 
his numerous friends and connections, and his continual in- 
tercourse with all sorts of people, added to his constant 
attachment to the liberties of his country gave him great and 
salutary influence from the beginning, in 1760." Drake's 
Diet. Amer. Biog. 

He was from youth a professor of religion, the motives 
of the gospel governed him through life, and at the hour of 
his departure from the world its sublime doctrines and its 
promises gave him support ** *. He was charitable to the 
poor and amiable in all the relations of life. His days were 
passed in constant exertion for the public good." Funeral 
Sermon. 

He was buried in the Granary Burying Ground, Boston, 
where a mural tablet was erected with the Cushing Coat of 
Arms on it. (Seep. 10.)

Manifesto issued at the Plymouth Congress, 4 Oct., 1774. 
In 1776 he was appointed Judge of Admiralty, and with

brought him into notoriety as a patriot. He was appointed 
Judge of the Supreme Court in 17S9, in which office he con- 
tinued until 1S01, when he resigned. He was afterwards a 
counsellor of the State. He was a gentleman of noble form,

Judge Zattu Cashing 



CUSHING FAMILY 13 3 



Pa., of the ship " Good Intent", the first ever built on L,ake 
Erie. From 1792-1805, he lived in Paris, Oneida Co., N,Y., 
whence he removed to Fredonia, Chatauqua Co., N.Y., 
where he accumulated a large landed property. He there 
commenced a nursery and set out the oldest orchard in the 
county and also planted pits for peach trees and the third 
year after had plenty of that fruit. He was a Baptist and 
instrumental in organizing and establishing, in 1808, one 
of the first churches of that denomination in the County. 
He was appointed in 180S an Associate Judge of the newly 
formed county of Chatauqua, which for three years was 
united with the adjoining counties of Niagara and Erie, the 
Court meeting at Buffalo. The first Court of Common Pleas 
and General Sessions of the Peace in the new County of 
Niagara was held by Judge Zattu dishing in June, 1808, in 
Landlord's Tavern, Buffalo (or New Amsterdam), and was 
held there until the Court House and Jail were erected. He 
was the leading member of the Court and in 181 1, when the 
organization of Chatauqua Co. was completed, he was ap- 
pointed first Judge of it. In 1822, he retired from the Bench 
with the reputation of an upright, dignified, clear-headed 
Judge. His intuitive perception of justice and his strong 
common-sense had well supplied the place of extended legal 
learning. 

In person he was tall and commanding. He was from his 
youth a zealous active Christian, an earnest, energetic 
speaker, and eminently benevolent to the poor and needy. 
His portrait is suspended in the Chatauqua Co. Court House 
in Mayville, the County seat.

Rochester, Mass., 16 Oct., 1768. He married, 12 July, 1790, 
Rosamund Studley, of Hanover. Lived in Abington, Mass. 
He passed through life under the shadow of that melancholy 
inheritance growing out of his father's tragical death (who 
was drowned off Duxbury Beach, Mass.). He was of a se- 
rious cast of mind, accented by the stern discipline, both 
domestic and religious, of the times in which he lived. His 
thoughts and writings were tinged with sadness, yet he had 
a strong, vigorous intellect, and a keen appreciation for the 
beautiful in nature and poetry. 

On his tombstone is found the following : 

" Dark was my journey through the world, 

Where once like you I stood. 
And now I sink in depths unknown, 

Or dwell on high with God ! ' '

to his high sense of honor, to the kindness and courtesy 
which ever marked all his intercourse with us, to the clear- 
ness and vigor of his mind, which had been cultivated with 
assiduous care and enriched by treasures drawn from every 
field of literature, to the elevation and purity of his taste, 
to the cultivated humor and generous social impulses which 
made him the life and pride of every circle, and to that innate 
modesty which veiled ability and worth from the stranger, 
but gave his character additional attractions to his friends."

was born in Annapolis Royal, N.S., 6 June, 1794. He mar-

a young man, he left Annapolis and went to Liverpool, 
Queen's Co., with his brother Charles, and settled in what 
is now Kempt, but was then an unbroken wilderness for 80 
miles. He hewed out a clearing to build a house, and 
brought his young wife 40 miles on horseback. His daughter 
says : " I have heard him tell so many times of their pioneer 
life ; when sometimes he had to leave his wife alone for 
more than a week with her young baby, my oldest brother. 
Other families settled eight miles nearer the seaboard, and 
then they had neighbors quite near, and were so happy in 
their rough life. One time he told of mother being eight 
days and not seeing a living person, when an Indian came 
and she was glad to see him. The Indians were not savage 
in these parts. ' ' He was a silent man and a devout Me- 
thodist.

the appearance of ship fever in this city and accepted an

travelled over the country within a radius of 200 miles from 
Chicago, in order to find a desirable location, and decided to 
buy land where the town of Providence now stands. The 
next year, May, 1837, about 30 families, with their house-

Providence, R. I., to Bureau Co., Illinois, where a town was 
founded of the same name. Indians were still to be found 
in Illinois, but were migrating rapidly west of the Missis- 
sippi River, the Black Hawk war having just been closed. 
He endured, with the early pioneers of the West, many hard-

years and supplied the people for miles around, going to 
Chicago, a distance of 140 miles, for supplies. At one time, 
he came very near perishing in a violent snowstorm, while 
crossing the prairies.

• ' In the death of Mr. dishing, not only his native state, 
but the nation will feel the loss of a man who for more than 
half a century has been distinguished for his learning and

papers and contributions to various periodicals, to the liter- 
ature of his time. He was also noted for his conversational 
and forensic talents, and for his knowledge of foreign lan-

brought so much real knowledge to the transaction of busi-

722. HOWARD BASS 8 CUSHING (Milton Bucking- 
ham 7 Zattu 6 Nathaniel 5 Ignatius 4 Jeremiah 3 Daniel 2 Mat- 
thew 1 ) was born in Milwaukee, Wis., 22 Aug., 1838. 
Private in Co. B, 1st Illinois Artillery, 24 March, 1862. 
Afterwards 1st Lieutenant in the 3rd U.S. Cavalry, and 
was killed in action by the Apache Indians in Arizona, 5 
May, 1 87 1. The following account is taken from "On 
the Border with Crook ", by J. G. Bourke. 

" Lieut. Howard B. Cushing was about 5 feet 7 inches in 
height, spare, sinewy, active as a cat ; slightly stoop-shoul- 
dered, sandy complexioned, keen grey or bluish grey eyes, 
which looked you through when he spoke, and gave a slight 
hint of the determination, coolness and energy which had 
made his name famous all over the southwestern border.*** 

" On the 5th day of May, 1871, Lieut. Howard B. Cush- 
ing, 3rd Cavalry, with several civilians and 3 .soldiers, was 
killed by the Chiricahua Apaches, under their famous chief 
' Cocheis", at the Bear Springs, in the Whetstone Moun- 
tains, about 35 miles from Tucson, and about the same dis- 
tance to the east of the old Camp Crittenden. Cushing' s 
whole force numbered 22 men, the larger part of whom were 
led into an ambuscade. * * * The fight was a desperate 
one and fought with courage and great skill on both sides. 



38 2 THE GENEALOGY OF THE 

Our forces were surroudecl before a shot had been fired, and 
it was while Gushing was endeavoring to lead his men back 
that he received the wounds which killed him. (The sur- 
vivors were obliged to retreat leaving dead and wounded).*** 

' ' Inside of 48 hours there were three troops of cavalry 
01 route to Chittenden, and in pursuit of the Apaches, but 
no good could be effected. :;: * * :;: 

' ' When the combined forces arrived at the Bear Springs, 
there was to be seen every evidence of a most bloody strug- 
gle. The bodies of Lieut. Gushing and comrades lay where 
they had fallen, stripped of clothing, which the Apaches 
always carried off from their victims. 

" # * * of the distinguished services rendered to Arizona 
by Lieut. Cushing, a book might well be written. It is not 
intended to disparage anybody when I say that he had per- 
formed herculean and more notable work, perhaps, than had 
been performed by any other officer of corresponding rank 
before or since." 

The citizens of Tucson have erected a monument to Lieut. 
Cushing' s memory.

carnage was so great that he was the last man at the last 
gun. ' ' He was twice severely wounded before the last death 
shot struck him, and though urged to leave the gun against 
which he leaned with shattered arm and thigh, he refused to 
go, and fought with such desperate resolution that when a 
shot through the brain laid him lifeless at his post, with dead 
comrades around him and dead adversaries in front of him, 
his work of defense had accomplished its object and the tide 
of battle had been turned towards victory for the Union.'* 
He was brevetted Lieut. -Colonel for conspicuous bravery.

where the grandfather (Judge Zattu Cushing) and other 
members of the Cushing family resided. He attended an 
excellent Academy, until, at the age of fourteen, he received 
the appointment of Cadet Midshipman at the Naval Acade- 
my, Annapolis, Md., 25 Sept., 1857. Resigned 23 March, 
1861, and was re-appointed Acting Master's Mate, 1861. 
Lieutenant, 16 July, 1862. Lieut. Commander, 27 Oct., 
1864. Commander, 31 Jan., 1872. 

There was not a year during the American Civil War that 
Lieut. Cushing did not distinguish himself by some perilous 
adventure. He commanded a ship at nineteen years of age 
and captured the first prize of the war, the "Delaware 
Farmer". On the 23 Nov., 1862, he was ordered in the 
steamer ' ' Ellis ' ' to capture Jacksonville and destroy the 
salt works in New River Inlet. After performing this 
duty successfully the "Ellis" got aground, Lieut. 
Cushing fired her and escaped in a small boat, receiving 
special commendation for his coolness, courage, and conduct 
in this affair. His most famous exploit was the destruction 
of the rebel ram "Albemarle", 27 Oc<\ 1864. 

The following account of this affair is taken from Harper's 
Weekly Magazine, 19 Nov., 1864. 

' ' The rebel ram ' ; Albemarle ' ' was one of the most 
formidable vessels which the Confederate navy ever floated. 
It played a conspicuous part in the capture of Plymouth last 
spring and on that occasion sank the Southfield. She attacked 
the Miami also, and a shot from the latter, striking the iron 
walls of the ram, rebounded and killed Capt. Flusser of the 
Miami, who was an intimate friend of Lieut. Cushing. It is 
said that for this reason Lieut. Cushing vowed vengeance 
against the Albemarle. 

" As early as last June, Lieut. Cushing, then commanding 
the Monticello, submitted to the Admiral (Lee) a plan for the 



CUSHING FAMILY 38 5 



destruction of the Albemarle. The plan was approved and 
the Lieutenant withdrawn to perform this special service. 

" After the conception of his plan, Lieut. Cushing came 
to New York and applied to one of the new steam-packets a 
torpedo arrangement and returned to the sound. 

" The Albemarle had been lying at Plymouth for some 
weeks previous to its destruction. A mile below the town, 
on the wreck of the Southfield, a rebel picket was stationed. 
On the night of Oct. 27, Cushing, with a company ot thir- 
teen men, proceeded up the Roanoke River toward Plymouth. 
The distance from the mouth of the river to the ram was 8 
miles. The picket above mentioned was passed without 
alarm, and the Albemarle was discovered lying fast to the 
wharf 'with logs around her about 30 feet from her side'. 
As the party approached the rebels opened fire from the 
shore, which was returned by the steam launch. The ap- 
proach was made in the form of a circle and with bows on, 
and when the logs were struck they were driven in some 
feet, the bows of the launch resting on them. ' The torpedo- 
boom was then lowered,' sa) 7 s Lieut. Cushing, ' and by a 
vigorous pull, I succeeded in driving the torpedo under the 
overhang and exploding it at the same time that the Albe- 
marle's gun was fired. A shot seemed to go crashing through 
my boat, and a dense mass of water rushed in from the tor- 
pedo, filling the launch and completely disabling her. The 
enemy then continued his fire at fifteen feet range, and de- 
manded our surrender, which I twice refused, ordering the 
men to save themselves, and removing my overcoat and 
shoes. Springing into the river. I swam, with others, into 
the middle of the stream, the rebels failing to hit us.' 
Cushing' s escape was so precipitate that he was not able to 
report the destruction of the ram from his own observation, 
but formed his judgment from a conversation which he heard 
while concealed in the marshes close to the enemy's fort, and 



3 8 6 THE GENEALOGY OF THE 



from the report of a negro whom he sent into town for in- 
formation. He had become exhausted in swimming, and 
had taken shelter in the immediate vicinity of the enemy. 
He was picked up by the ' ' Valley City ' ' on the night of 
the 30th, having made his way to that vessel in a skiff cap- 
tured from an enemy's picket." 

Five times he was publicly thanked by the Navy Depart- 
ment, and for the Albemarle affair received the " Thanks of 
Congress", the highest honor the Government could pay. 
He commanded the steamer " Maumee", Asiatic Squadron, 
1868-9. He was the youngest man of his rank in the navy, 
but the; hardships of the service, especially the two years' 
work in the blockading service, — before he was a man grown 
— was too great a strain on his delicate nervous organiza- 
tion, and was the cause of his death at the age of thirty-two 
years.

voted his time to assisting Dr. Charles Rau in preparing the

hood of the Bow." In 1882, he escorted a part)' of six Zu- 
nis to the Atlantic Ocean or " Ocean of Sunrise ", to carry

Ethnology on Zuni Fetiches. He returned to his Indian 
friends in 1882. Failing health obliged him to return to the

language, and in translating myth stories, songs and 
rituals, he settled in Washington. From 1886 to 1888,

cal Institution, in 1865. He was appointed a missionary of 
the American Baptist Missionary Union, 25 April, 1865, and

was in Northeastern Burma among the Shans, and, with 
Mrs. Cushing, he travelled extensively over the mountain 
ranges even to the borders of China, and visited people who 
are just now coming into the range of regular missionary 
work. Dr. Cushing duplicated in the Shan language the 
work of Dr. Adoniram Judson in the Burman. He prepared 
the first dictionary of the Shan-English language and trans-

of the Shan language, and wrote hymns, tracts and elemen- 
tary school books. On ii Feb., 1895, he was appointed 
President of Rangoon Baptist College after having served as 
president pro tern, for about two years. In 1893 the school 
had less than one hundred pupils. To-day the pupils in all 
grades number nearly one thousand. Dr. Cushing presided 
over it with sedulous care and conspicuous ability, and by 
his courtesy and tact maintained amicable relations with the 
representatives of the government of India and with the 
diverse elements in the school. He obtained many advan- 
tages for the College from the government and saw it steadily 
grow under his fostering care to one of the foremost educa- 
tional institutions of India. Dr. Cushing was prominent 
not only in the religious and educational, but also in the 
social life of Burma. He received the marked confidence of 
the Government of India and was entrusted with missions 
of a delicate nature. He was a scholar of deep and rare 
accomplishments, a member of the Royal Asiatic Society of 
London, Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society of Lou- 
don, a member of the Society of Arts of London, Fellow of 
the Royal Meteorological Society of London, member of the 
Victoria Institute of London, for seventeen years a member of 
the Educational Syndicate of Burma, and for the past eight 
years vice-president of that body by government appoint- 
ment. In recognition of his distinguished service in reli- 
gious and educational work, Brown University conferred 
upon him the degrees of Doctor of Divinity and Doctor of 
Philosophy.
