History, N. Y. City. 

Until comparatively recently nothing has been known 
of the origin of the Eastman family in this country be- 
yond the fact that the first colonist of the name in New 
England, RoGER EASTMAN, sailed for Boston in the ship 
Confidence in 1638, and was one of the original settlers 
at Salisbury in Massachusetts Bay. The new settlement 
by the Merrimac was founded largely by Wiltshire emi- 
grants, and a number of these, including heads of families 
by the names of Rolfe, Sanders, Whittier and Eastman, 
came from the parish of Downton, a few miles south of 
the sbire town of Wiltshire. What Rowley and Newbury 
in England are to their daughter towns on this side the 
Atlantic, that Salisbury, England, is to our Salisbury in 

The Downton parish register was first searched for 
Eastman records by the present writer in the summer of 
19 10, and some notes on the origin of the family were 
published in the Granite Monthly, a New Hampshire 
magazine, for December of that year and the following 
October. Thanks to the generosity of Mr. George East-

man of Rochester, New York, it was possible to engage 
the services of an expert antiquary, Mr. Charles H. 
Hoppin, for the purpose of making a complete transcript 
of early Eastman family records preserved in Wiltshire 
archives. From the large quantity of material collected 
by this historian a selection has been made relating to the 
direct ancestral line to which the pioneer colonist Roger 
belongs, and this is included in the present article. Much 
more space than is here available would be required to 
contain all the extant information. 

Ancestral Line of the Pioneer Colonist. 

First Generation. 

The ultimate progenitor of this line of whom authentic 
records have been preserved is John^ Eastman of 
Charleton. Following is a literal transcript of his original 
will, dated April 26, 1564, and proved May 9, 1565.

The foregoing document proves that the testator had 
only six grandchildren living in 1564, all of whom were 
minors. Two of the grandsons were named fVilliam, one 
of whom belonged to the family of Roger^ Eastman and 
lived at Charleton, in the parish of Downton, and the 
other, who was son of the testator's executor, at Weeke, 
in the same parish. Concerning the family that lived at 
Weeke, it will be sufficient to note that William"* East- 
man {iniliam^, John^)^ was twice married, first in 1599, 
to Elizabeth Kempe, and secondly to Edith — , family 
name not found, who died in 16 19. Downton parish 
records give the following as his children: 
i. William, b. — ; d. 1606. 
ii. Margaret, bp. 1604. 

iii. Elizabeth, bp. 1610. 

iv. Alice, bp. 1614. 

*The Latin note appended to the will may be modernized as follows: 
"The above-written will of John Estmann, late of Downton In our 
Jurisdiction of the Archdeaconry of Salisbury, deceased, was proved 
before Master John James, bachelor of law, official of the Lord Arch- 
deacon of Salisbury, on the ninth day of the month of May in the year 
of our Lord 1565, and by him approved, etc., and [administration] was 
granted, etc."

Second Generation. 

The foregoing will of John^ Eastman is authority for 
giving to his son Rogcr^ of Charleton only two children 
who had been born prior to the year 1564 and were still 
minors when that instrument was made. Other offspring, 
however, must have been born subsequent to the year 
1564, for we find at the time of Roger's death, in Febru- 
ary, 1604, he, being then a widov/er, had eight children 
living whose names are known to us, and at least eight 
grandchildren. Besides these heirs, a married daughter 
of Roger,^ who had been the wife of one William Skeate, 
executor under the will of Roger," had previously de- 
ceased. Downton parish records show that Roger'' East- 
man was buried February 17, 1604. His will, dated 
January 1 1, of the same year, was proved six days follow- 
ing his death. The original will, unfortunately somewhat 
mutilated, together with the complete detailed inventory 
of the estate and administrator's bond is on file with the 
Consistory Court of Sarum, and is an important genea- 
logical document. 

The injury to the will itself is of such nature that a 
portion of the left hand margin has been torn away, or 
"perhaps eaten by rats," as suggested by Mr. Hoppin, 
who prepared an exact transcript. The names of one or 
two of the beneficiaries are unfortunately lost, having 
been contained in the missing fragment, but from other 
sources we are clearly warranted in supplying one of them 
as WilUam, who was either the eldest or second son. 
There are named as executor the testator's son-in-law, 
William Skeate, and as overseers "my well-beloved sonns 


Genealogy of the Harvey Eastman 

Walter Eastman y*" eld"^ & John Eastman," The remain- 
ing heirs, named in the order of their mention, were 
Nicholas and Roger Eastman, four Skeate grandchildren, 
and Mary, Edith and Thomas Eastman. Witnesses to 
the will were John Bebmaton, Thomas Fursley, Walter 
Eastman and John Eastman. A seal is attached, bearing 
the device of a talbot passant. 

Third Generation. 

We come now to the generation immediately preceding 
that of the emigrant Roger, ^ and find entries in the Down- 
ton parish register for reconstructing the families of his 
uncle JFilUam''^ and father Nicholas^ as follows : 

William^ Eastman {Roger, ^ John^), born some 
time prior to 1564; died after 1622. He married (i) 
Edith — , who died in October, 1605. He married (2) 
in 1607, — (name blank or illegible in Downton parish 
register). Resided at Downton. Children: 

i, John,^ bp. March 29, 1603; d. 1663, leaving 

son John, 
ii. Richard, bp. Oct. 27, 1605; buried Nov. i, 

iii. Greenway, bp. Aug. 26, 1609; was "late of 
New Alresford in the Countie of South- 
ampton" in March, 1660, at which time his 
widow was the wife of Thomas Bone, 
iv. William, bp. Oct. 31, 16 10. 
v. Thomas, bp. June 15, 1613. 
vi. Richard, bp. May 5, 1615. 
vii. Griffin or "Griffith," bp. Oct. 31, 1619; bur. 

Aug. 31, 1623. 
viii. Hugh, bp. May i, 1622. 

Branch of the Eastman Family 

Nicholas"^ EastMz'^n {Roger,- John^)^ born probably 
betv/een 1564 and 1570; died some time after 1625. He 
married Barbara — (family name probably Rooke), who 
was buried at Downton, July 9, 1625. Resided at Charle- 
tcn. Children: 

i. Thomas/ bp. Jan. 9, 1602/3; m. Oct. 21, 

1634, Alice Sanders, sister of John Sanders 
of Weeke. He was living in 1656. 

ii. John, bp. Dec. 24, 1605; m. July 28, 1628, 
Margaret Newman. His will dated Jan. 5, 
1656/7, and proved April 4, 1657. Her 
will dated Nov. 8, 1673, ^^'^ probated Dec. 
4, 1673 ; both buried in the parish church at 
Downton. They had children : 

i. Christiana""', who m. John Noyes. 
ii. Barbara. 

iii. Alice, who m. James Barrowe. 
iv. Margaret, who m. Thomas Wheeler. 

iii. Margaret, bp. March 26, 1608; m. July 20, 

1635, Richard Howse. 

iv. Roger, bp. April 4, 16 10; d. at Salisbury, 
Mass., Dec. 16, 1694; m. Sarah — , b. 
about 1620/21; d. at Salisbury, Mass., 
March 11, 1697/8. Will extant. 

V. Nicholas, bp. Nov. 29, 161 1. 

vi. Maurice or "Morris," bp. April 26, 1 6 1 5 ; will 
proved May 8, 1669, by his executors "Wil- 
liam Rooke and Barbara his wife," desig- 
nated in the will as "my kinsmen." Bequest 
of £100 to "my kinswoman Barbara Rooke, 
the daughter of William Rooke," and £50 
to sister Mary Moody. Thomas Eastman 

Genealogy of the Harvey Eastman 

vii. William, bp. Jan. 21, 161 7/8; had a son Wil- 
liam; both living in 1669. 
viii. Alexander, bp. Sept. 12, 1620. 
Ix. Christiana, bp. Nov. 24, 1622. 
X. Mary, bp. March 24, 1625; m. John Moody. 
She was living in 1669, as were also her 
three children: Mary, Edith and Maurice 
(or "Morris"). 

As has already been stated, the earliest ancestor who 
can be directly connected by authentic records with the line 
to which Roger, the founder of the family in this country 
belonged, is John^ Eastman of Charleton who died in 
1565. A number of Eastman items occur in the Eccleclas- 
tical Commissioners' Court Rolls for the Manor of Down- 
ton, ranging in date from 14 Edw. IV to 30 Henry VIII 
(1475-1540). In these manor court rolls, under date of 
1539, is found the following entry, where mention is 
made of both a John and Roger Eastman of Charleton: 

Membrane i. 1539. 

Dounton Manor. Court held there 17 December, 30 
Henry VIII. 

Charleton : The tithingman there presents that Roger 
Estman has been sworn Into the office of tithingman; and 
that (in reckoning the pannage of pigs) Roger Estman 
has two old and six young pigs; and John Estman the 
younger, one old pig. . . . Nounton [Nunton], 
John Estman has one old and two young pigs. 

In conclusion is offered a copy of Eastman items taken 
from the vital records of Romsey, Hampshire, not previ- 
ously published:

Joseph Eastman, born in Salisbury, Massachusetts, 
November 8, 1650; died April 4, 1692. He was 
a weaver by trade. Joseph Eastman married 
Mary Tilton, who was born February 8, 1649. 
She was the daughter of Peter Tilton, a man of 
note and influence. After the death of Joseph 
Eastman, his widow married Joseph Guensey and 
moved to New Jersey. Children: Joseph, Mary 
and Peter. 

Peter Easfman, born in Hadley, Massachusetts, 
January 20, 1686; married Mehitable Root of 
Deerfield, November 28, 1708. There is no 
record of his death or of the number of children 
born. According to tradition there were twelve 
sons and some daughters. Peter Eastman prob- 
ably settled in Suffield, Connecticut, at that time 
in Massachusetts, as we find in the records of that 
town the birth of five children. From Suffield 
Peter removed to New Jersey some time between 
the birth of his son Hezekiah and son Benjamin. 
He returned to Connecticut and located in New 
Fairfield in the thirties. The history of that town 
says he built the first house there. Children: 
Peter, Mary, Peter, William, Hezekiah, Benja- 
min, Azariah, Joseph, Mehitable. 

Joseph Eastman, born in New Jersey, September, 
1724; died in Marshall, New York, September 2, 
1802. Married October 12, 1746, to Phebe 
Hendricks, vv^ho was born in 1723,. and died March 
4, 1812. Childrtn: Hezekiah f Nathaniel, Joseph, 
John, Peter, Abraham Dayton, Experience and

Hezekiah Eastman, born September i, 1748; 
married October 17, 1774, to Hannah Porter and 
died September, 1831. Hannah Porter Eastman 
born March 29, 1751, and died August 12, 1820. 
After the death of his wife Hezekiah Eastman 
married again. The second wife's name was Sarah 
but we have been unable to find her maiden name 
or the date of her birth, marriage or death. Heze- 
kiah Eastman was a Baptist minister and was 
ordained October i, 1781, at the house of Stephen 
Calkins. He was the first settled minister of 
Danby, Vt., and the first pastor of the first church 

The following story is told by a nicee, 
Saphronia, v/ho was living in Canandaigua, New 
York, at the age of ninety-four (1900) : 

"At the time Danbury, Connecticut, was burnt, 
Joseph Eastman, father of Hezekiah, lived a few 
miles north of that place, and he, with his three 
sons, Nathaniel, Joseph and Hezekiah, were 
called out with the militia to repel or capture the 
"Red Coats," who had succeeded in burning Dan- 
bury. A Tory family lived nearly opposite the 
Eastman house and they opened their house and 
made preparations to welcome the British v/hen 
they came ; but not so with the Eastmans. Abra- 
ham Dayton, the youngest, was sick at home with 
his mother, who, fearing harm, saddled the family 
horse, hitched him to the back door, put up some 
provisions and things she would need, intending 


Genealogy of the Harvey Eastman 

to get the sick boy on to the horse and start for 
the hills as soon as the "Red Coats" came in sight. 
Soon she saw a single horseman coming, who in- 
formed her the raiders had been captured and 
there was no more danger from them. The Tory 
family across the way shut their doors, closed their 
windows and were seen no more that day." 

Hezekiah Eastman moved to New York and 
settled in Marshall, Oneida County, where he died, 
and was buried in a little plot of ground taken off 
the original farm on which he settled. Children: 
Harvey, Buell, Joseph, Hezekiah, Sarah, Phebe, 
Hannah, Saviah.
