DEDICATION 

The Stebbins portion of this genealogy I wish to dedicate to the 
memory of those pioneer forefathers who suffered, and bled and died 
that we, their descendants of today might have a more free and boun- 
tiful life. By this dedication may the pioneer courage of those who 
have passed this way before be an incentive and a guide for future 
generations to shape lofty aims and noble goals in life. May our 
appreciation for the liberty we now enjoy be shown by an honor and 
a reverence toward our pioneer forefathers. 

The Swetland portion of this genealogy, I dedicate to my mother, 
Polly J. Swetland Stebbins. To her I owe much for the good train- 
ing in early life that has been a strong foundation for future building, 
for the guidance, help and comfort that she gave me during those 
first early years on the farm, and for all the love, devotion, sympathy 
and understanding of later years — I wish to repay in this crude but 
enduring manner. 

The Wilcox portion of this genealogy I dedicate to my loving 
wife, Avis Wilcox Stebbins, who has labored by my side for nearly 
a half century, and who has been a spendid homemaker and a loving 
mother to her family. 

And to her mother, Olivia Cheney Wilcox, whom I have been 
proud to call my mother-in-law, I dedicate the Cheney portion. The 
fine Christian spirit and encouraging ways of Mother Wilcox were an 
incentive to me to move onward and upward when I started anew in a 
lonesome frontier town half a hundred years ago. I would not want 
to blot from my memory the many deeds of kindness she passed to 
all those with whom she came in contact.

FOREWORD BY THE COMPILER 

When a young lad in school, I often thought and wondered who 
and what kind of people my grandparents were. However, as all of 
them had died before I was born, with the exception of Grandfather 
Swetland, who died in 1865, when I was two years old, I had no one 
of the older generations to ask questions to satisfy my curiosity re- 
garding my ancestry. Some of my great uncles and aunts were still 
living and when I asked questions about my ancestry they were evasive 
or able to give very little information of any value. 

When I left home in 1884, at the age of twenty-one to settle in 
Nebraska, I did not know when I would go back to the old home again. 
One day, alone, I went to the old Waits Corners Cemetery and there 
in my diary, which I kept, I took down the names of my great grand- 
father and grandmother, David and Irena Collins Stebbins, my grand- 
parents. Dexter and Eliza Crittenden Stebbins; and some other mem- 
bers of the family buried there, in the hopes that some day I might 
be able to trace back to the first Stebbins grandparents that had come 
to this country. 

In 1898, my own family and I visited the old home at Sherman, 
New York. My father and mother were still living on the old home 
place and when several of the older members of the family were to- 
gether in a group, I asked them some questions regarding our early 
ancestors. I recall that Carlos Stebbins, a cousin of my father, said 
he had a paper down at his home that told all about the Stebbins 
family, where they came from and he said I could get this information 
from that paper. I visited the home of Carlos Stebbins and found 
this paper to be a copy of a paper published in Greenfield, Massa- 
chusetts. It contained a complete list of the Stebbins family from 
David and Irena, who are buried at Waits Corners, N. Y., back to Row- 
land Stebbins, the first immigrant ancestor, who came from England to 
America in 1634. This article had been prepared by George Sheldon 
of Deerfield, Massachusetts and I learned from this article that he had 
published a history of Deerfield in two volumes in which appeared 
the Stebbins genealogy along with the stories of many other pioneer 
families of Deerfield. 

When I reached home from our trip, I wrote George Sheldon at 
Deerfield and he told me where I could secure these books which he 
had written and published in 1895. From these two volumes, "His- 
tory of Deerfield," I gathered much information regarding the history 
of our family. In 1909, I visited Deerfield and met George Sheldon, 
the author of the Deerfield history. He was then 90 years of age, 
spry, active and possessed one of the keenest minds I have ever known. 

11 



GENEALOGY OF THE STEBBINS FAMILY 

He invited me to spend an evening with him and Mrs. Sheldon and 
the information I gathered that evening from him was like getting it 
from an encyclopedia. He told me his thoughts often went back to 
his childhood days and that he distinctly remembered when his mother 
carried him in her arms on the streets and to visit neighbors. He was 
certain that he could remember many things that occurred when he 
was three years old. He told me about the condition of the Connecti- 
cut valley around Deerfield when the white men first bought it from 
the Indians. The Indians had kept the valley free of timber and culti- 
vated it and raised corn and tobacco. This was a paradise for the 
early settlers of our country to find a place like that where the primeval 
forest was already cleared. He told me about the fort that was first 
built there and which protected the early settlers from the French and 
Indians. Then he showed me the many nice markers along the street 
that were there to mark the home lots of the early settlers. He showed 
me where my grandparent, John Stebbins HI, had lived when his 
house was burned and he, his wife and six children were carried 
captives to Canada by the Indians on that cold winter night of Febru- 
ary 29, 1704. I expressed my desire that a marker be secured to 
mark that sight the same as the others were marked. He told me to 
think it over and see if I could not have a monument erected there to 
commemorate that spot. After my return home, I corresponded with 
Mr. Sheldon and we decided to erect the monument which stands there 
today with the following inscription:

John Stebbins Monument, Deerfield, Mass. 



I was asked to go back to the dedication of this monument in 
1911, but as it was inconvenient for me to do so, I corresponded with 
Mrs. Sherman I. Pool of Waverly, Iowa and she agreed to go back 
to represent me at this unveiling. Mrs. Pool, whose mother was a 
Stebbins. went to Deerfield and the records of the Pocumtuck Valley 
Memorial Association, (Volume V, 1905-1911) of which Mr. Sheldon 
was president, give an account of the erection of the monument and 
the address which Mrs. Pool and others made that day. 

I have visited Deerfield, Northampton and Springfield several 
times since then. Always, 1 have been deeply interested to learn all 
I could about those early ancestors. About 1909, I learned of the 
book published by Dr. Daniel Stebbins of Northampton, in which he 
told of the grave of Rowland Stebbins at Northampton, Massachusetts, 

13 



GENEALOGY OF THE STEBBINS FAMILY 

and gave an account of finding this grave after the body had lain 
there 179 years in an unmarked grave. It occurred to me that there 
should be a permanent marker on that grave now that we knew its 
location. Dr. Stebbins had erected a nice marker about 1850 but it 
was becoming badly weatherbeaten and I feared that in a few more 
years the inscription would be entirely illegible. I was eager that 
the grave should be marked with a modern marker of lasting durability. 
I talked about this to several members of the family but none of them 
offered to help so I decided to replace the old marker with a new one 
and that the old marker should be placed near the base of the one to 
be erected. In October 1938, I had Brown, Stevens & Fifield of 
Northampton erect a Scotch granite marker at this grave. On the 
marker is a bronze tablet with the following inscription: 

In Memory Of 
ROWLAND STEBBINS 

Son of Thomas 

Born Bocking, England, 1592 

Married Sara Whiting, Nov. 30, 1618 

Came to Roxbury, Mass. 1634 

Settled at Springfield, Mass., 1639 

Died in Northampton, Mass., Dec. 14, 1671 

Erected 1938 by Willis M. Stebbins, 

Gothenburg, Nebr., 9th generation from Rowland. 

My entire aim as the donor of this monument has been to per- 
petuate the memory of the first pioneer Stebbins who came to America 
and to make a lasting and permanent record available to future gen- 
erations, who, I hope will get as much thrill and pride from a knowl- 
edge of their ancestors as I have. 

To Mr. and Mrs. Sherman Ira Pool of Waverly, Iowa; to Gratia 
Thornton of Santa Barbara, California; to Emmet 0. Stebbins of 
Meadville, Pennsylvania; to Mrs. Fannie Emery Morgan of Los 
Angeles, California; to G. Lavern Stebbins of North Clymer, New 
York; to James McCallum, Superintendent of Cemeteries at North- 
ampton, Massachusetts, and to all others who assisted me in com- 
piling this work, I am deeply grateful.

GENEALOGY OF THE STEBBINS FAMILY 

IMMIGRANT ANCESTRAL RECORDS I HAVE BEEN 
ABLE TO SECURE 

It has been very interesting to search for what information we 
could gather regarding some of these immigrant ancestors and we 
will give what information we can about them. 

We find they all came from England to America with the ex- 
ception of John Alexander and Edward Allen, who came from Scot- 
land. It will be noticed that in the various towns where they settled 
most of them became active citizens and occupied responsible posi- 
tions in the community and in the church. 

Robert Bartlett, of Thomas Hooker's company who came in 1632, 
went to Hartford, 1636, where he was the first selectman of Hartford, 
1640; went to Northampton, 1653, and was the first selectman of that 
town 1653-54. He was killed by Indians in King Phillip's war, 1676. 
His name is among the 102 names on the Founders of History monu- 
ment at Hartford, Conn. 

Thomas Muiison came to Hartford, 1673. Received a grant of 
land for his services in the Pequot war, 1637. Representative to the 
Colonial assembly, 27 sessions. Captain of New Haven forces in 
King Phillip's war. 

Elder John Strong came to Dorchester, 1635. Settled at Taunton, 
1645. Deputy from there to the general court at Plymouth, 1641 to 
1645. Was appointed with four others to superintend the settle- 
ment at Windsor, Conn., 1646, one of the founders of Northampton 
where he was ordained the first ruling elder of the First church. Was 
a leading man in the town. 

Lt. Samuel Smith, who came to Watertown, Mass., 1634 and took 
up a homestead at Wethersfield, Conn., 1634-5, was one of the most 
useful men of his time. He built and was part owner of the first ship 
built in his Connecticut colony. Was deputy to the general court 
1637-1646; several times selectman; removed to Hadley, Mass., 1659, 
where he held important offices in church and state. Deputy to the 
general court of Massachusetts Bay colony 1661 to 1673. Magistrate; 
commissioner to the Mohawks, 1667. In Hadley, lieutenant of Hadley 
troop, 1661 to 1678. One of a committee "appointed to lay out the 
plantation of Squakheag (Northfield, Mass.), admit inhabitants, grant 
lands, and order the prudentials of the village." 

Thomas Woodford came to Roxbury, Mass., 1632, where he was 
steward of the church from 1632 until he went with Thomas Hooker 
to found Hartford, Conn., 1636. 

18 



AND KINDRED LINES 

Thomas Ford came in "the good ship Mary and John" to Dor- 
chester, 1630, where he was a member of the town governing board 
in 1633. Proprietor at Windsor, Conn., 1636. Representative to 
general court many times between 1638 and 1654. "Member of the 
committee which sat with magistrates before government was organ- 
ized," 1638-9. Judge Henry N. Blake says, "Six presidents of the 
United States were descended from Thomas Ford." 

Capt. George Lamberton, one of the earliest settlers at New Haven, 
Conn., was a member of the general court, 1640. Deputy to New 
Haven, 1644. Master of "The Phantom Ship" which sailed from 
New Haven, 1646, and was lost at sea with all on board. The story 
is told in early New Haven history and in Longfellow's poem, "The 
Phantom Ship." 

Robert Bardwell of Hadley, Mass., was "an old Indian fighter" 
and carried dispatches from Boston to Hadley on the Connecticut 
river in King Phillip's war, 1675. He was a soldier in the famous 
*'swamp fight" when the power of the Narragansetts was broken, Dec. 
19, 1675. He was a sergeant under Capt. Turner in 1676 and was 
stationed at Hatfield with 44 men under him, and was in the Falls 
fight. No wonder he was brave and a "fighter" for he came of brave 
fighting ancestors, the Bardwells, who were in Bardwell parish, Suf- 
folk county, England, as early as the time of William the Conqueror. 
Sir William Bardwell, a celebrated soldier whose effigy still adorns 
the window of the parish church, died in 1634, in possession of Bard- 
well manor. In 1914, a framed picture of "Sir William de Bardewell,'* 
copied from this stained glass window of Bardwell church in Bardwell, 
England, the picture in the window dating back to 1421, was presented 
to Memorial hall, the colonial museum of Deerfield, by descendants 
of Robert Bardwell of Hatfield, whose ancestor was this Sir William 
de Bardewell. The Bardwell coat-of-arms indicates warlike proclivities. 

Richard Belding, baptized at Kippas, England, 1591, was an 
original settler at Wethersfield, Conn., 1640. A large land owner. 
He was the second son of Sir Francis Bayldon and his second wife, 
Margaret Goodricke, who were both of distinguished ancestry; the 
Bayldons (or Beldings) tracing back to 1150 or earlier and Margaret 
Goodricke's mother were of royal descent traced with certainty to 
King Alfred the Great. Margaret Goodricke was fifth in line of 
descent from William Goodricke, brother of Thomas Goodricke, bishop 
of Ely and Lord Chancellor in the time of Edward VI. 

In the Indian attack on Hatfield in September 1677, the wife of 
Samuel ( 2 ) Belding, the son of Robert ( 1 ) Belding, was slain and 
Sergeant Benjamin (2( Waite's house was burned and his wife and 
three small children carried captive to Canada. Here another daughter 

19 



GENEALOGY OF THE STEBBINS FAMILY 

was born, whom she named "Canada Waite." Sergeant Benjamin 
Waite, who was an Indian scout and a brave and hardy man, after 
strenuous efforts succeeded in bringing the captives back, and his little 
two-year old daughter, Sarah, who was one of the captives, later 
married John (3) Belding, who was eight years old when his mother 
was killed in the Indian attack. 

Sergeant Benjamin Waite served through King Phillip's war 
1675-6, but lost his life in Queen Anne's war, when with a rescue 
party from Hatfield, in pursuit of the French and Indians after the 
massacre at Deerfield, 1704, he was killed by the Indians in a skirmish 
at Deerfield meadows. He is called "the hero of the Connecticut 
valley," and many of the noted dwellers in that valley today are proud 
to state that "the blood of Sergeant Benjamin Waite flows in their 
veins." 

John (1) Leonard, the father-in-law of Sergeant Benjamin Waite, 
was killed in King Phillip's war 1676. He was one of the earliest 
settlers at Springfield, 1636. 

The two immigrant ancestors from Scotland were John Alexander, 
who settled at Windsor before 1640, and Edward Allyn (or Allen) 
who settled at Ipswich, 1636. He had been a soldier under Cromwell. 
Removed to Suffield, Conn., 1678, where he and his three sons each 
had a grant of land. His son Corporal Edward (2) Allen was select- 
man at Suffield 1692-3 and Edward's son was surveyor of highways, 
1682-3, selectman, 1683-1698, Tythingman, 1694. (This was a church 
office. ) 

Corporal Edward (2) Allen removed to Deerfield where he was 
town clerk, 1704-1712, and for many years clerk of the market. The 
Allen coat-of-arms is a crusader's cross in gold on a sable field. Its. 
jnotto reads: "Bravely he bears his cross."

Stebbins Genealogy 



ROWLAND STEBBINS (1) 

Rowland Stebbins, b. in Booking, Essex county, England, 1592, 
came from England in the ship "Francis," with wife and four children. 
Landed at Boston, and settled at Roxbury, Mass., 1634. The records 
of his baptism: "Rowland, s. of Thomas, baptised Nov. 5, 1592," and 
of his marriage to Sara Whiting, Nov. 30, 1618, inscribed in Latin, 
are still to be seen on the old parish registers in ancient St. Mary's 
church in Booking, England. 

The name Stebbins, or Stebbing, as it was written in the Domes- 
day Book (1080-1086, A. D. ) was first borne by John de Stebbing, a 
younger son of the Ferrers family, the first of whom came from Nor- 
mandy with William the Conqueror, who appointed Henry de Ferrieres 
one of the commissioners to make the "Great Survey of the Realm," 
from which was compiled the Domesday Book. Henry de Ferrieres 
claimed the parish of Stebbing. 

His son, Robert de Ferrieres, was created the first Earl of Derby 
by King Stephen. The fifth Earl of Derby, William de Ferrieres, ac- 
companied King Richard the Lion-Heart to the Holy Land where he 
lost his life at the siege of Acre, 1191. The Stebbins coat of arms 
indicates a crusader. 

His son, William de Ferrers, sixth Earl of Derby, was one of the 
four nobles who carried the canopy over the head of King Richard I 
at his second coronation after his return from captivity, and also took 
part in the coronation of King John, 1199, and of King Henry III in 
1216. 

During the reign of King John, this younger son of the Earl of 
Derby, John de Stebbing, held the Manor of Stebbing, most ancient 
manor house with a moat, now known as Porters Hall, still stands on 
the road to Braintree in Essex county; surrounded by the Stebbing 
park in the Parish of Stebbing. As Rowland Stebbins was born within 
five miles of this old Manor house, it would indicate that his ancestors 
of the name Stebbins had been there since 1199, over 400 years. 

Rowland Stebbins (1) was an intimate friend of William Pyncheon, 
the founder of Springfield, Mass., who came from the same place in 
England, so in 1639 he removed from Roxbury to Springfield and 
later he and his son John were among the founders of Northampton, 
Mass., where Rowland Stebbins died, December 14, 1671.

AND KINDRED LINES 
JOHN STEBBINS (3) 

John Stebbins, son of John and Anne Munden Stebbins, b. Jan. 
28, 1647 at Springfield, Massachusetts, d. Dec. 19, 1724 at Deerfield, 
Mass., m. about 1683 at Boston to Dorothy Alexander whose grand- 
father, John Alexander, came from Scotland before 1640. She was 
b. in 1660 and was still living at Newton, Mass. in 1733. 

Children: 

(4) John, h. 1685, d. Sept. 7, 1760, m. Hannah Allen. Returned to 

Deerfield. 
(4) Abigail, b. Jan. 4, 1684, m. Jaques Desnoions or DeNoyans. In 

Canada. 
(4) Samuel, b. Dec. 25, 1688. In Canada. 
(4) Thankful, b. Sept. 5, 1691, m. Adrienne L. Grain — Lavallee. In 

Canada. 
(4) Ebenezer, b. Dec. 5, 1694. In Canada. 
(4) Joseph, b. April 12, 1699, m. Mary Samssoucy. In Canada. 

John Stebbins was one of the founders of Deerfield, Mass., drew 
a house lot there in 1671. Served in King Phillip's war, 1675-6. He 
was one of only four men who escaped from the Bloody Brook massacre 
in September 1675, when Capt. Lothrop and all the rest of his com- 
pany — "young men, the flower of Essex county," were slain by the 
Indians in ambush. His name is among those engraved on the Bloody 
Brook monument which marks this spot at South Deerfield, Mass. The 
second day after this massacre John Stebbins enlisted again under 
Capt. Moseley and fought Indians until the close of King Phillip's war. 
In March, 1700, he was "chosen member of the school committee." 

In Queen Anne's war in the Deerfield massacre of Febr. 29, 1704, 
the house of this same John Stebbins was burned by the French and 
Indians, and he, his wife, Dorothy Alexander, and their six children 
were captured and carried to Canada, where they were separated and 
taken to different places. Two years later he, his wife and one child, 
John — all they could find — were redeemed and returned to Deerfield 
by Ensign John Sheldon, whose wife, Hannah Stebbins, and their babe 
had been killed in their home — ever after known as "the old Indian 
house" — and four of his children taken captive to Canada. The 
hatchet-scarred door of the old Indian house — which stood for 144 
years before it was torn down — is the chief object of interest in the 
noted Colonial museum at Deerfield, which is visited by thousands 
every year. The Indian house, and the Indian house elm tree are on 
the seal of the town of Deerfield.

CONCLUSION 

In 1909, I visited Springfield, Northampton, and Deerfield, Mass., 
for the first time. I recall that at Springfield I found a city directory 
and looked up to see how many Stebbinses were listed. I found sixty- 
seven among which were lawyers, doctors, manufacturers, merchants, 
and laborers. , 

At Northampton, where Rowland spent part of his life, I think 
there were nineteen Stebbinses listed in the directory. Most of those 
at Springfield were descendants of Thomas who had remained at 
Springfield after his father had gone with his son John II to help 
found Northampton. At Deerfield there were about six or seven 
families all descendants of John III, first settler there. In 1938, I was 
again in Deerfield, and I only found one family living there at that 
time by the name of Stebbins. This shows the present shift in popula- 
tion to other parts of the country. 

At Conway, Massachusetts, where our family lived after the Rev- 
olutionary War for some years, 1792 to about 1830, I could not learn 
of a single Stebbins living there now. 

It has been characteristic of the Stebbins family to be pioneers 
and out in front in community affairs. 

James McCallum, who has been superintendent of the Bridge 
Street Cemetery at Northampton, Mass. for nearly forty years, says 
many people visit that cemetery every year and inquire for the oldest 
date on any tombstone there and he always refers them to the grave 
of Rowland Stebbins, birth date 1592 — oldest date he has found in 
the cemetery. At Waits Corners, N. Y. the oldest date in the cemetery 
of burial is 1835, that of David Stebbins. 

It is believed that Luke Stebbins compiled and published the first 
genealogy in America which was a genealogy of Samuel Stebbins and 
his wife, Hannah, published in 1771 at Hartford, Connecticut. Only 
two of the original copies are in existence. In 1879, the New England 
Genealogical Society reprinted one hundred copies. 

The next Stebbins Genealogy we have a record of is the one pub- 
lished by Dr. Daniel Stebbins of Northampton, Massachusetts in 1850. 

George Sheldon's "History of Deerfield" also contains a genealogy 
of the Stebbins family in Deerfield and Conway, Massachusetts. 

The Stebbins Genealogy published by Ralph Stebbins Greenlee of 
Chicago in 1904 was in two large volumes. He made a thorough search 

111 



GENEALOGY OF THE STEBBINS FAMILY 

of the records of the Stebbinses in America at that time and he states 
95% of the Stebbinses in America trace back to Rowland as their first 
ancestor in America. I have met many Stebbinses in other states and 
only found one who didn't claim descent from Rowland. This one ex- 
ception was a Stebbins in the grocery business in Oelwein, Iowa. He 
had come from England to Iowa when a young man. He was born and 
reared in England and knew of no connection between himself and the 
Stebbinses in America. 

I have all of these genealogies and recommend all who wish to 
study their family records further, to consult them. These genealogies 
may be obtained from the Goodspeed Book Store of Boston. 

War records have been made brief because complete records can 
be obtained at any time from the War Department at Washington, D. C. 

For over forty years I have been making this research and I am 
proud of the accomplishments of these pioneers who served faithfully, 
in their way, in their day, not only their God, country, but indirectly, 
their posterity. They were faithful and loyal to their church, to their 
community, and to their country.
