RICHARD WILLIAMSS a native of Gloucester- 
shire, England, but descended from the same Williams 
Family of Wales from which Oliver CromwelL came, 
horn in 1606, and his wife FRANCES DIGHTON, 
daughter of John and Jane [Bassettj Dighton, came to 
this country about 1636; they were a short time in 
Dorchester, but soon v/ent to Tauntcn, of Vvhlch lie v/as 
one of the first settlers and was so prominent in its 
a,wairs that he v/as called "The Feather of tlie Town." 

They had a large family whose numerous descendant's 
are found in all parts of our country. 

Their youngest son, Benjamin- marrie>i Re'becca 
Macey, daughter of Lt. George and Susannah [Streei] 
Macey. Tliey had a son BEN.;A^5IN,3 born July 31, 
1695, who married, December 22, 1720, Susanna How- 
ard of Brid2:ewater, dauo-hter of Mai, Jonathan and 
Sarah [Dean] Howard; they had an only son, Rurr':-, 
born about 1723. 

Note. — The larger part of the material for tins work was garherecl 

by Benjamin Franklin Williams, Esq., of Grafton, who lives on a pn^t 

of the f;>!d farm. Samuel \\'i!Ii?.ni.s v-as fifth in descent from ]'Jrhr-rd

RuFi-s Williams^ married, Tvlarch ij, 1745/6 Mercy 
Shaw, daughter of Jonathan and Mercy [Mason] Shaw 
of Raynham.and their first born was Samuel Wij.i.iam^.s. 
born in Taunton, March 20, 1746/7. Col Samuel 
Pitts of Taunton, who died at Louisburg, October 54, 
1745, was the guardian of Rufus^ whose mother died 
in his infancy, and who apparently lived witli Cob 
Pitts and with the Colonel's widow after his death. 
She m.arried James Williams, and a fragment of the 
Bible of the latter (imprint 1734) is still held by the 
descendants of Samuels, which undoubtedly cam.e to 
them from Rufus'^. Ir purports to be the Bible of 
James Williams; it contains a record of the deaths 
of Col. Pitts and James Williams, but nothing furiher 
relating to the famil)'. 

As the population of Taunton increased, individu^.'s 
and colonies went away into the vast wildernes? and 
established new homes and founded new towns. Amon^ 
these was Samuel Williamss, who with several of in's 
Taunton neighbors, emigrated to Grafton, New Hamp- 
shire; he settled on what is still called "Williams llii];" 
and cleared a farm which has been in the possession cf 
his descendants ever since.

Tlicre ni?.y have lieen ethers -who died young. 

They moved to Grafton about 17S9, probably in the summer of 
that year. The following letter from them to their rxiother, Mary 
Case, has been preserved : 

"Grafton January 17 1790 
Honer mother after our dutifull Respects to you these lines are to 
inform you that vve are all well and in good health Nothing special 
has taken place since i wrote to you last only we built a log house 
upon land that we bought and moved into it the tlfth day of October 
last; as to. the season past it was very good but we had an early 
frost that hurt us very much we raised no corn and but a very little 
wheat or Rye But we work out a Brlckmaking about eight weeks 
and made about tv/enty pounds which we expect to Receive Partly 
in Wheat So we expect to make out for grain But it looks very likely 
that grain will be scarce in this and the neighboring towns Remem- 
ber us to Perserved and Hannah and the family in general also to 

James and Prudence and the family and if you have any other 

questions to ask you may ask otis and so we remain your dutiful 

Sam Will!a:.!> 
Mercy Williams." 

This letter was directed "For Wd° Mary Case Rehoboth." It has 
been assumed that inasmuch as the original has been preserved in 
the family at Grafton, the letter was never sent. But }.Iary Case, to 
whom the letter was written, came to Grafton, lived with her children 
and died there. It is more probable that she preserved the letter 
herself and it was found among her effects after her death. The 
parties named in the letter have not been identified. In the oldest 
cemetery in town is a stone inscribed "Mary, wife of ^^■illiam Case, 
died 179S, aged 86 years, 10 months."' Her estate was administered 
upon by Samuel Williams, Jr., and while the records sho'.v that 
payments were made to heirs in Massachusetts, presumably in 
Rehoboth, their names are not given ; the records of that town do 
not give the family and her maiden name has not been ascertained. 

From this letter, it appears that they had purchased land, built a 
log cabin and moved into it, October 5, 17S9. But there is no 
recorded deed, showing that Samuels had then acquired title to any 
land; but in 1795, four deeds v/ere given to Samuel Willinrns and 
Samuel Williams, Jr., both of Grafton, of land in Grafton, and these 
are the earliest on record. 

A house was built on the farm, in place of the log cabin, about 
1791, his descendants think; about 180S, another house was built 



f . , . I,;. ,,. 


for Samuel, Jr. ; and l.tter still, another for Rufus?, oldest son of 
Samuel, Jr. ; all on the original farm, wldch v.-as divided according::)'. 
The two latter are still occupied by descendants of Sarnueb of the 
Williams name ; but the old house, probably the oldest in town, is 
occupied by a descendant in the feniale line.'*
