The materials for this ;;ene;ilogy wei'e. for mo>t part, rrathererl aiul ar- 
ranged many years ago, but additions have been made from time to time as 
opportunity occurred. Records of the contemporary generation have in 
some instances been obtained only since the manuscript was in preparation 
for tlie press. Tliis circumstance will account for an occasional lack of 
symmetry in the arrangement. 

What relates to the fii'st four generations and the later generations of 
the line of James l>aker (i). 17."!'J, d. 1S2.3) was printed as a contribution 
to the New England Ili^-torical and Genealogical Register of Jul^', ISSi). 
The method and typography of the whole conform in geni^ral to the -standard 
of that periodical. 

Roman numerals are used to denote the chihben of each family in the 
order of seniority, ami Arabic numerals to denote the heads of funilies. 
The exception to the latter rule is that a ^mall Hgure ajipeariiig alutve the 
line, and called in type a "superior," is used to indicate the generation of 
each head of family and each of his direct ancestors. These superiors are 
used only in the introductory line of the [)aragra()h relating to a particular 
family. It will readily be kept in mind that the children of the person 
thus designated are one ueneration later, and that the grandchildren, some- 
times meiitioned in the same connection, are two generations later than that 
indicated by such superior. 

An Arainc numeral on the level of the line standing either l)efore the 
particular name, or, enclosed in a parentliesis, after it, may be u-^t-il re- 
peatedly in conformity with the method referred to without confu-ion. 
'1 liis may be called the "pergonal numeral." 

\VIh'Ii so ii«eil it ?er\e.> all the purj>osc5 of a surname. T'lion g:iining a 
,-li^lit laiulli^ivity with the text the reail.-r will find, lor examiile. eae-li 
'• Julin " to stand foi-th in mind in stron^^ indi\idnalitv, a> "JDhn (-)," 
'•John (o)," '■Jolm (1''^)." ** Julm (47)," etc., a> if hi-^ surname were not 
I5ake'r. but -duiethin^ else. In like mannei" childrfn having no [lersonal 
nuuierah the several Sarahs, tor instanee, as daugliters respectively of 
"John (2)," "John (7)," "Jdhn (•'7)" ami "John (40)" become nvn- 
taliv di>tinct. In the u>e of these two elas>es tU' numerals. thei"e is coinci- 
dence in the first three names only: Richard (1), John (2) and John (o) 
are also Richard,^ John^ and John.^ 

A lack of symmeti'y in failing to give certain heads of family a personal 
numeral has been explained. The enumeration having (Hice been made it 
was impossible to interpolate, because of cross-rcfei'ences by number and 
for other reasons. An abbreviation for the name of the State follows any 
mention of a cit\ or toun out of Massachusetts, and that .State is to be in- 
ferred where no such abbreviation appeals. Where in the oiiginal record 
there were double dates, the earlier date, or '"old style," has been u-ed. 
In the pre2)aration of the manuscri[)t for the press the undersigned has 
had the assistance of 3Ir. Daniel W. Baker, son of Benjamin (48) of this 
series, who has collected some of the more recent dates and contributed 
certain biogi'aphical and historical matter.

PMuaril Hopkins was the agent in L')ndoii of a eolonizin;^ CMinpanv or 
association, the chief members of which were Lord Say ami St-al. Lurd 
Bi'ook, Lord lueh, Sir Richard Saltoustall. and others of inlla Miri' politi- 
cally and socially. They had obtained a i;i-ant of territory wliirh included 
what is now the State of Connecticut, and were anxious to :^et military 
control of the regi(_>n by establishinij a fort at the mouth ot' tin- (.'onm-cti'MiL 
liiver in antici[)atioa of a like movement on the part of the Dutch ot 2Se\v 
Amsterdam, who also claiuied possession or rii^dit^ of trade there. 

To this end the projectors lu't-ile 1 a sranrh ve--el af lii:ht di'aft to ply 
between Boston and the month of the C'tuuactieut duiiuLi; tlu' buildini: ot a 
fort. This North Sea boat, which was named tht3 " Racheior." was oi.taincil. 
and a master and crew (jf eight in all were engaged to sail the vessel aero-,s 
the sea and on coastwi-e voyages here during the construi'tion ot tlu' fort. 
The vessel was laden with matei'ial, iron work, etc., suit dilc t'oi- siu-h con- 
struction, as the invoice contained in Hopkins's letter shows. Four p i-shu- 
gers were taken, .Sergeant Lyon Gardiner.;|; a military engintt-r ; hi- :i--;~ranr. 
and the .Sergeant's wit'e aiul maid. The letter of Ho[ikins containing: the

lie '^ooii rea>oii. and i-t-maiks in an exphtnatoiy w.iy that "it was not; 
easv here to ^r.-t any at this time to ;ro in so small a vessel." He remarks 
iticiileiitally that ••th<' master hatli a de-ii'e, as h'- tells im-, to continue in 
the country." He' <hie- not say that of the master's mate, witli whom 
(Richard liaker heini: then a yuiig man of not mneh more than one au'l 
twenty) he prohahly held no com t-rsation. Ihit tho reasons eflective witii 
tho ma-ter in tlie niattei' would likely to he xj with the mate, ami, if thev 
rel.ated only to pur-nit of the mariner".^ calling, there were with the latter 
other iiiit h-ss potent reasons. 

At the la^t moment, when the haripie was at Grave>i'nd. four of the 
crew, whom Hopkins names, lenoiinced tiieir contract so far as it pr'A'ided 
for ser\iee on the vessel in New Knulaiid. •• Whereupon." ht,'-avs. " hein;:; 
]iut to some straits I was in a manner constiMineil to yield to their de-ires." 
Of the other four, one (_>f whom was tlu- mastei''s mate, he say^ that tliey, 
"stickiiii; to the former agreement, will he ahle. I conceive, with -mall !iel[) 
more, to sail the hanjue in the countiy."' Oa the liaek of the next letter 
from Hopkins, dated London. 21 Sept.. IGoo. is a menioraiidum in the 
liandwritin^- of John Wintlirop. Jr., of four items, one of whieli reads: ■• .'J 
bills of exchange of oit li to he paid to IJich: Haker." The-e iiills, f(jr- 
^varded by a vessel sailing a imtnth later than did the Daelndor. indicate 
sutTicieiitly on the part of tiie pei-soii in whose favor they run, not meiely a 
desu'e but a purpose to continue in the country. 

This recital of remote, and. in part, uidmportant facts oi record is perti- 
nent here as evincing to tliose who will chicHv he intei'e.-ted in this gene- 
alogy that tluir common ance>tor came to America under ciicum-tane's 
liighly creditahle to himself. They give proof that he was a man of gicat 
couraL'e and of skill ;>.nd re-ources in the mai'iner's art; that in an 
e.xigency which me'ii oi small soul took advantage of he was one of those 
who did etjuity by "sticking to the former agreement " ; and that he was of 
a frugal hahit. pi'eferring to take passage where he would liave nothing to 
pay out. but a considerahle sum in [)ocket at the end of his ocean and 
wise voyages. The bills of e.\(diange may also be taken as evidence of a 
like habit in money matters while he was yet in his native land. 

The next date of record of Richard Baker is November 4, IGOO, when 
he became a inemh*'r of the chuich in !)orchester./^It is probable that ho 
■was man ifd ah(,Lit that time. IIi.> wile. Faith Withington, is recordeil 
under her maiden name as a ini-mher of the same church of •^lJ•Iier date. 
She wa- a daughter of Henry Withington. the ruling elder of the Churrh. 
The oliicf was one of much honor, and vaiious facts >iioW that tin; lamily 
of Withington \vas (Uie of -social di-tinction. Mary, a sister of i'aith, 
married 'Ihomas Danforth," w ho liecanie deputy governor of the colony. 
Near relatives of Richard Raker were Thomas Raker, his Ijrothei', a 

• Appendix III. 

resident of Roxbury and owner of the historiciil t'nle-ruill* there; :»n<l John 
Baker of Boston, a nephew of both Kicliard antl Tlionias. who in dillLrtiil himself as '• smitli " and " mariner." Tliese descriptive 
appellations do not indicate that he was mt-rely an employe in either husiness. 
lie was a prominent and entfrprising citizen of the metropolis, and carried 
on business extensiwly. He died a comparatively youn^ man. al)i>u^ 
twenty years before either of his uncles, and his inventory >liows that ii^ 
had ac([uired property in shippinirt and real estate amounting to £7".)'J, a 
considerable estate for that peiiod. 

It does not appear of locord that Richard Baker assi::.ted in sailinrr the 
Bachelor coastwise, but his contract reipiir.ed him to do so if the owneis 
desired. It is certain, as ap^nvus in others of the Winthroi) letters, that 
the vessel was thus employed. It he was in that service, a [jait. at least, of 
the interval between 1 G-io and 1 Go'J is accounted foi-. In tlu' lecords of 
Dorchester, very soon after the latter date, he is put down a.^ a considt- rable 
owner of real estate in that town. Ills homestead was a tract of land 
frontintj southerly upon tin; road now called Savin Hill Avenue. The 
site of his dwelliui^-house was uniloubtedly that of the building known to 
the contemporary generation as the "Tuttle 3Ian.-ion."' Hh mlded from 
time to time to tlie original area by pureha>e of adjoining lau'!-. 

One of these additions appears to have been a tract on the northwesterly 
slope of Savin Hill, where, up to a recent date, stood two dwellings known 
from time immemorial as the Baker houses. One yet )-emains. Tliat 
which has been demoli^^hed was in all probability the house which Richard 
I>aker. as he states in his will, built for his >on John. The statement is 
made in connection with a bellue^t to this sun of adjacent lands. Richardi 
Jlaker bequeathed his homestead estate to his sou Jamc-<. who lived a 
bachelor. He in turn beiiueathed it to his nephew .John \Vi:^wall. and the 
property remained in possession oi the Wiswall I'eir.-, until !>:.''>. uiu-.i it 
was sold to Mr. Tuttle. The piemises referred to as heiiueathed to John 
Baker continue<l uninterruptedly in possession of some of his descendants 
till the year 187-2. 

• Richard Baker was made a freeman of the colony 3Iay 1."^. 1012. He 
became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Ai-tili»^ry Company in 
1 ''''><. In nearly every year from lt;i2 to Wj^'j his name is ot leconi as 
exercising some office in the town admini.-trati(;n of D'irihi;>tei-. lie 
a[ipears not to have aspii'ed to the highest station, antl during only 
year. \G.Jo, is he recorded as a selectman. In lGlj.':> he was elected a 
luliiig elder of the church, but declined the office. Both in the town and 
the cFiurch records his name appears from time to time with tho>e of others 
who were amoii" the principal citizens in the making up of im[)Ortant 
coiiuuittees. He was a propriet(jr in all the " Divisions" of town lamls 
subseiiuent to the date of tiie "Great Lots." The "Divisions" covered 
nni.'h the larger area. The inventory of his estate amounted t(j £I.'j1o 1./.

1792. He graduated at Ilaivard College in iSil. and afti-rwards 
began tlie study of law at LitcliHeld. Conn. Wiiile tliere hi> atten- 
tion was drawn to the woolen numufacture. He rcHn(jni.>hed the 
law and started a factory for woolen goods. The enter|irise proved

school for a while at Natchez and carried on trade in New Orleans. 
In 1M24 he took sole charge of the chocolate manufacture at Dor-

his father, who now retired. Under the new style of - Walter 
Baker" it became large, prosperous and wiilely known. After 
.some previous service as an officer of the State militia Walter 
Baker was, in ls-27, commissioned as colonel of the Eir.-t IJegi- 
ment, and thereafter was generally known and spoken of as '• Col. 
Baker." He was a popular citizen and for many years a favorite 
presiding officer, or " moderator." of the Dorchester town meetings. 
He served three terms as representative of the town in the (General 
Court, viz.. in I8oo. I-S-'jO and 1.S4<). His residence was at the 
southerly corner of Washinirton and Park streets in Dorchester, the 
site being indicated on the city atlas of this date liy the name of

evidence of its antiijuity is its plan and style of construction, which corr>spond 
to otlier dwellings of the earliest sreneration. The roof of the house was of the 
garabrel shape in front, and to the rear it made a long slope, tlie northerly eaves 
being scarcely more than >ix feet luL'h. Tlie dimensions of the iiT<iund pian. as 
measured by the >till exi-tiiiir eellar-Avall, were about 2s by :j() feet: the former
