and Seventy-Six Years. 

Demonstrated By George M. Huntress. 

Huntress is an old-time carpenter, 77 
old. He has ivorked all his life in the 
orlwod of Greenland, N. H., where the 
brick house is located. We can vouch for 
ith of what he says about the present 
on of the three old record-setting nails, 

nails themselves were sent to us to be 
raphed and are now on display in our 
il rooms. — Editor. 

E oldest brick house in New Hampshire, 
and in fact it was the first brick house 
erected in the state, still stands here at 
and. It is the old Weeks house, erected 
I, and is, therefore, now two hundred and 
-six years old. Seven generations of the 
family have dwelt under this roof. 

e is many a lesson for builders in examin- 
ne of these old-time houses. Take nails, 
tance. One doesn't have to have been as 
arpenter as I am to remember back to the 
hen iron-cut nails were in common use. 
do the young fellows of today think of 
1 use and exposed to dampness for more 
vo hundred years, without rusting? We

of powder in about that time. 

look at these nails ; the longest one I took 
e other day from a red oak timber in the 
>f the old Weeks house. It was driven in 
ir 1638. It is still bright and clean. It 
hand-forged nail and the hammer marks 
LI plainly seen. Such a record of two 
d and seventy-six years of service in a 
k cellar-beam is quite an argument for 
Duilding, and for paying a little bit more 
mg building materials that will last. 
other two nails, while venerable in a 
•e mere babes-in-arms compared with this 
andfather nail. I took them from a 
house built two hundred years ago. The 
one is a clapboard nail, the other an 
finish nail. Both are clean and bright, 
ely free from rust. 

llustration shows these nails to exact size, 
e are several other interesting facts about 
Weeks house that are worth recalling, 
alls are eighteen inches thick, built of 
burnt right on the site, at the time of 
g. Tradition says that this house was

built as a sort of garrison with a view of safety 
from being burned down by the Indians. 

The main supporting girders of the first nooi 
are 12 by 14-inch oak beams. Subordinate beam: 
are round red oak timbers, ten inches ii 
diameter. 

The only change that has been made in th< 
outside of the house is in the windows. Thej 
were originally made up of small diamond panes 
set in lead. 

It is said that there is only one house in Nev 
England that antedates this Weeks house anc 
that is the ancient Craddock mansion in Med 
ford, Mass., which is stated to have been buib 
seven years earlier. The architectural desigi 
of the two houses is identical. — America,

Part Circle Corrugated Culverts for 
Driveway and Alley Entrances. 

j "The use of pure iron corrugated culverts in 
the part circle form at driveway entrances is 
already quite common in cities on the Pacific 
coast and might be widely adopted to great 
advantage. The following letter from Mr. S. J. 
Van Ornum, Consulting Engineer of San Fran- 
cisco, Cal., sets forth a very practical plan for 
this construction. No. 10 gauge corrugated 
American Ingot Iron should be employed, and 
probably it would be found advantageous to 
protect the concrete at the ends of the corrugated 
arch by the use of a light angle iron." 



S. J. Van Ornum. 

Consulting Engineer, 
960-964 Pacific Building. 

San Francisco, Cal., September 18, 1914. 

Editor Highway Magazine. 

Dear Sir: — When I was in Burlingame and 
San Mateo the other day, my attention was 
attracted to the driveway culverts along the 
streets constructed of four or six-inch pipes sur- 
rounded by concrete or asphalt surface. 

A small circular pipe at driveways is an 
abomination as it can not have sufficient capacity 
for the storm water flowing along the gutters. 
It also easily clogs with leaves and debris and 
when clogged it is very hard to clean out. 
Because of this disadvantage, some cities pro- 
hibit the use of driveway culverts entirely, but 
most cities allow them to be used specially when 
the parking is so narrow that an easy slope from 
the sidewalk to the gutter can not be made. 

The thought occurred to me of constructing 
driveways and alley culverts of corrugated iron 
part circles resting one edge in a notch in the 
gutter and the other edge in a notch near the 
top of the curb. I have drawn two cross-sections 
showing this idea. The upper cross-section 
shows the gutter sloping toward the curb and 
the lower cross-section shows a gutter having dif- 
ferent cross-sections. The curb face in each case I 
have made eight inches. These two cross-sections 
1 believe are typical examples of gutter cross- 
sections for both paved and unpaved streets in 
this state. 

The drawings show a twenty-four inch part 
circle with a rise of two inches as maoufactured 
by your company. 



The advantage of this cross-section ove 
now in use are : 

1. A maximum cross-section of culver 
tained for the flow of water. 

2. The standard street cross-section 
gutter is not changed, thus allowing 
tinuous unobstructed free passage o 

3. Minimum interference in the use ( 
way. 

4. The strength of the corrugated in 
circle is not diminished. 

5. A minimum amount of concrete or 
surface mixture required in its const 

6. Sufficient height and width to al 
cleaning if necessary. 

7. A curb and gutter previously con 
can be utilized by cutting proper nc 
them to receive the corrugated part 

8. The design can be used with any h 
curb face and any cross-section of gj 

In the upper cross-section I have m 
slope of the roadway over the culvei 
slight, but if necessary on a narrow sti 
slope over the culvert can be made gre 
shown on the lower cross-section. It can 
that the lower cross-section gives a mini] 
interference to the travel along the str< 
the upper drawing the culvert area is e 
three six-inch pipes placed side by side 
lower drawing is equal to two eight-inc 
and is also greater than one eleven-inch 

I believe if this design were shown 
officials they would adopt it as the si 
design for driveway culverts and proh 
construction of driveway culverts as n 
structed. 

I am sending you this design knowi 
its adoption will be a great aid in mahl 
clean and unobstructed waterways al 
curbs of cities. 

Very truly yours,

PREFACE. 

THE following contribution toward the history of one of 
the early families of our country, is the result of investi- 
gations and correspondence during the past five years ; and 
while it is not as complete as might be desired, yet it is 
believed to be of sufficient value to warrant its publication. 

The work has been a growth, extending far beyond the 
original design, — which was merely to trace the line of the 
author's ancestry back to the settlement of the country, and 
to collect the history of the descendants of his great grand- 
father, making perhaps a pamphlet of a few pages. In carry- 
ing out this design, however, traces were found of other 
branches of the original family, and the plan was gradually 
enlarged, until it comprised the entire history of the descend- 
ants of George Weekes, in the direct line, so far as possible to 
obtain it. 

Information has also been sought in regard to the early 
history in England of the family of which George Weekes is 
supposed to have been a member, and with some good degree 
of success. 

While the work has involved a great amount of labor, and 
some hundreds of dollars of expense, — far beyond any expect- 
ation of pecuniary compensation, — the author feels abundantly 
rewarded for his labor by the pleasure experienced in the 
doing of it, and will be content if the subscription list shall 
prove adequate to defray the cost of publication merely. 

Several hundreds of letters have been written, to all parts of 

the country ; libraries have been searched ; family, town, and 

other histories, — city and town directories, — county, town, 

church, and family records, — monumental inscriptions, — have 

2 



IO PREFACE. 

been examined ; localities have been visited ; every clew has 
been followed, as far as practicable. Both public and private 
records have in many instances been found to have been very 
imperfectly kept, and in some cases to have been destroyed. It 
is probable that a large proportion of the persons not traced 
died in childhood, or in early life without issue ; others prob- 
ably removed to parts unknown, and may be represented by 
descendants who have no knowledge of their ancestry for 
more than two or three generations. A colony from Dor- 
chester went to South Carolina in 1695, and founded a settle- 
ment which they named Dorchester ; they afterward removed 
to Midway, Georgia. Some of the early untraced members of 
the Weekes family may have gone with this colony : while 
traces of families of the name have been found in that region, 
not enough has been learned to determine their origin. 

More than 1,100 names of descendants of George Weekes, 
in the direct line, have been found, about half of whom are 
now living; also, about 1,000 names of children whose 
mothers were Weeks by birth. 

A very few members of the family to whom repeated letters 
of inquiry have been written, have been too indifferent, or too 
careless, to reply at all. A few others have replied briefly and 
imperfectly, and could not be induced to be more definite or 
full. But by far the greater number have responded cheer- 
fully, offering to add anything desired as far as in their power ; 
and some have entered heartily into the spirit of the matter, 
and industriously sought for information, thus rendering valu- 
able aid, and lightening the labors of the author. While he 
is deeply grateful to all who have so cheerfully assisted him, — 
too many to enumerate in this connection, — he feels that 
especial thanks are due to W. Hill Budgett, Esq., of Bristol, 
England ; to Hon. Wm. B. Trask, of Boston, Mass. ; to the 
late Mrs. Eunice (Weeks) Little, of Granville, O. ; to Mrs. 
Dorothy (Weekes) Nickerson, of South Harwich, Mass. ; to 



PREFACE. 1 1 

Justin W. Weeks, of Watertown, N. Y. ; to George W. 
Weeks, of Clinton, Mass. ; also to William F. Weeks, of New 
York City, for information in regard to the Hardwick family ; 
and to Mrs. Charles L. Alden, of Troy, N. Y., and Dr. Stephen 
Wickes, of Orange, N. J., for the history of the family ot 
Thomas, of Huntington. 

The plan of the work does not comprise a record of all the 
descendants of George Weekes ; but only those of the name, 
with the children of such, — those of other surnames of the 
second and later generations not being included. 

Those of each branch or sub-family are placed together : the 
descendants of an elder brother, for instance, are followed out 
to the present date, before the history of the one next to him 
in order of birth, is entered upon. 

Immediately after the list of children in any branch of the 
family, the children of daughters are given, before the families 
of sons are taken up. 

Individuals who are Weeks by birth are numbered in the 
order of their first appearance in the record, and indexed by 
such numbers : children of other surnames are not numbered. 
In a few instances, where a name has been inadvertently over- 
looked in the original numbering, or has been afterwards 
added, the preceding number is repeated, with an italic a 
attached. The individuals in the families of Thomas, of 
Huntington, and Nathaniel, of Hardwick, are numbered for 
convenience of reference to family connection, but are indexed 
according to pages. 

When a name is to appear later, as the head of a family, 
reference is made in connection with its first appearance, to 
the place in order of numbers where such further history is to 
be found : for example, on page 39, after the mention of 
EBENEZER (33), as one of the children of HEZEKIAH (26), is 
the reference in parenthesis, ,! [after 242] " ; on turning to 



12 PREFACE. 

number 242 in regular order, (p. 62,) the history of Ebenezer 
and the names of his children will be found, succeeding such 
number. 

When an individual is so introduced a second time, his 
original number is repeated, in large figures, in a line by itself. 

The small figure at the right of the head of a family, indi- 
cates the number of his generation, George Weekes being 
reckoned as first. 

The names in parentheses, following the head of a family, 
show (in reverse order) the line of descent from George 
Weekes. In some cases, instead of the line of ancestry, 
reference is made to the father or to a brother only, (thus, " s. 
of preceding," " bro. of preceding,"), when the record of such 
relative has just been given, with little or no interval between. 

Names are given as written by the persons themselves or by 
near relatives, or as found in the records, even when the 
spelling is unusual, — except where such spelling is evidently 
an unintentional error. 

Dates are given as found in the records : the earlier dates 
being " Old Style," and the later, " New Style." When the 
year is given thus, (" 1669-70,") in connection with dates from 
January I to March 25, in the earlier years, the first number 
is the year according to Old Style/ the other according to 
New Style. March was the first month until 1 75 1 : January 
was reckoned the first month of 1752. There is also a 
difference of eleven days between the Old and the New : 
August 3, 1 741, Old Style, would be August 14 according to 
New Style. 

Sometimes there has been found a conflict of authorities in 
regard to dates : in some such cases, preference has been given 
to the one that seemed to be sustained by the best evidence ; 
in others, both are given. 



TREFACE. 13 

Some errors in names and dates have no doubt been made, 
the sources of information being imperfect ; but the effort has 
been made to secure as great a measure of accuracy as prac- 
ticable, and it is believed that few mistakes of importance will 
be found.* The author will be grateful for information of any- 
such that may be detected. Such errors as have been found 
while the work has been going through the press, are noted in 
the Errata, at the end of the book. 

A number of ancient documents connected with the history 
of the family, have been found, literal copies of which are 
inserted. 

The original signatures of George Weekes and his wife, and 
of a number of their early descendants, have been discovered, 
and fac-similes will be found in their appropriate places. 

Such information as has been obtained in regard to other 
families of the name, — whether early settlers or more recent 
comers, — is given, though in many cases but fragmentary. 
The family of Thomas, of Huntington, L. I., is given with a 
good degree of fulness; also those of THOMAS, of Hardwick, 
Cornelius, of Ware, and Roland, of Petersham, (descend- 
ants from John, of Falmouth, Mass.) 

Abbreviations used are as follows: b. born; bp. baptized; 
bro. brother; d. daughter, died; g. grand; 1. lived, lives; 
m. married; prob. probably; pub. published; r. removed; 
s. sister, sou ; w. wife ; wd. widozv. 

A few blank leaves are inserted at the end, for the use of 
such as may wish to continue the records of their own 
immediate families. 



* It may be noticed by any who should compare the data given in Savage's Genealogi- 
cal Dictionary, with those found in this work, that there are some discrepancies. In all 
such cases— except the dates of baptisms— the author has been guided by original 
records, examined by himself personally : the dates of baptisms were copied for him by 
Wm. B. Trask, Esq., of Boston, from the original church records. 



14 PREFACE. 

Any additional information, of value, obtained subsequent 
to the publication of the present work, will be published in a 
supplement, or deposited with the New England Historic 
Genealogical Society, Boston, Mass. Such information is 
requested, from all into whose hands this work may come.

Weekes, Weeks, Wekes, Wikes, Wykes, Wicks, Wickes, 
Wyckes, Wycks, Wix, Week, Wick, Wicke, Wvche, Wyck, 
Wyke, Weick, Weik, de Wike, de Wyke, Van Wyck, 
VlCK, etc., — are but different forms of the same name, or 
names of like origin ; taking their rise from the Saxon wic, 
wj>c, wick, or widie, and related forms in other European lan- 
guages, — akin to the Latin vicus, (village), and the Greek oikos, 



t8 weekes— weeks. 

anciently foikos (house), — and having a wide range of applica- 
tion, the general signification being, a dwelling-place* This 
element is found in composition in such names as, Berwick, 
Warwick, Highweek, Norwich, Wickham, Wickford. Wyke- 
ham, Wickington, etc. 

The name, in some of its various forms, is of great antiquity 
in England, and is borne by families between some of which 
there is no connection. f The early emigrants to this country, 
bearing the name, appear to have been mainly, if not entirely, 
from the south of England, and were probably from among its 
gentry and yeomanry of Norman origin. They were generally 
men of enterprise, — some being also men of culture and of 
means, who at once assumed positions of honor and influence. 
Some of these were no doubt nearly related to each other, as 
indicated by traditions among their descendants, as well as 
by marked likeness of physical and mental characteristics. 

GEORGE WEEKES, 

One of the early Puritan settlers of Dorchester, in the Massa- 
chusetts Bay Colony, is said by the early chroniclers to have 
been of " an ancient and honorable Devonshire family," whose 
original name was Wrey, and whose seat, in the latter part of 
the 14th century, was at North Wyke, in Tawton Hundred, 
about twenty miles westerly from the city of Exeter. 



* Some ingenious student of names has given a curious but improbable derivation 
of the name Weeks from William, thus: William, Will, Wilkin (i. e. little Will), 
Wilkins, Wilkes, Weelkes, Weekes, Weeks. 

t An inscription on a brass tablet in the floor of St. Clement's church, Hastings, Sus- 
sex, England, still to be seen, indicates the burial place of Thomas Wekes, who died in 
1163. Thomas Wykes was bailiff of Hastings in 1651. William de Wike held a 
knight's fee in Kent in 1166. William and Gerard de Wyke lived in Kent about fifty 
years later. In 1335, Sir Stephen de Wike was living at Canterbury. In 1347, Stephen 
de Wyke was at Wyke, Westgate, Kent. The following also were of Kent: Thomas 
Wyke, syndic of Poor Priests' Hospital, Canterbury, 1373; John Wykes, Esq., 1395; 
Richard Wyke, 1403 ; John and Thomas Wyke, 1412 ; Edmund Wykes, in list of 
gentry, 1428; John and William Weeks, gent., in time of Charles I. Others were in 
Sussex, Somerset, Berks, Herefordshire, Gloucestershire, Yorkshire. Sir Peter Wyche, 
of Somerset, was ambassador to the Grand Signor in 1627. 



WEEKES — WEEKS. 19 

There is a tradition that the family of George Weekes was 
of Huguenot origin ; another, that its descent is from Dutch 
refugees from the persecutions of the Duke of Alva. But if 
he was of the Devonshire family, these traditions would appear 
to have no foundation ; for this family has a history reaching 
far back of the era of either Huguenots or the Duke of Alva. 

In the absence of certain knowledge of the birthplace or 
English residence or line of descent, of George Weekes, — it 
seems proper to give such facts as have been learned in regard 
to the history of the name in Devonshire. These facts have 
been obtained in part from personal examination of some of 
the histories mentioned, and have been in part kindly furnished 
by W. Hill Budgett, Esq., of Bristol, England, who is con- 
nected with the family in England, and who has enjoyed 
peculiar facilities for procuring information in regard to its 
history. The name of the family appears in the records 
referred to, in a variety of forms : Wyke, Wykes, Wike, Wikes, 
Week, Weeks, Weekes. 

In an account of the WREY family, in Playfair's British 
Antiquities, the earliest name given is that of 

Uobm It »rcg, 

who married Sybil Abbott, and who was living in 1 1 35 , the 
first year of King Stephen.* He was succeeded by William

Cocktree, who was a relation of the family, and had taken the 
name of Wykes. f Their son Roger held a fourth part of a

* The name of Robert le Wrey indicates a Norman origin : his father probably came 
to England with William the Conqueror.

ton, in 1346. The possessions of the Wrey family are said by 
this author to have been of great extent. * 

The same writer states that the Wrey family, in some of its 
branches, is descended from Charlemagne, through Louis le 
Debonair, the Emperor Charles of Germany, the Baldwins 
(Earls of Flanders), William the Conqueror, and his successors 
to Edward III. Domesday Book (1068-1071) gives the name 
of Viscount Baldwin as holding lands in " Wiche," Tawton 
Hundred, Devonshire. f 

Sir William Pole (or Poole), who died in 1635, in " Col- 
lections toward a Description of the County of Devon," gives 
the following account of the North Wyke family: 

The family of Wrey was originally of Wrey Barton, in the 
parish of Moreton Hampstead ; they also held North Russell, 
and North Wyke. 

WILLIAM LE Wrey:}; held the fourth part of a knight's fee 
in North Wyke, parish of South Tawton, 27th Henry III, 
1242. From him followed Walter (1277), Roger, Walter, 
Roger, who in 1345 held a fourth part of a knight's fee in 
North Wyke, of the barony of Oakhampton. He had son 
WILLIAM, who married Katharine, daughter and co-heiress of 
John Burnell, of Cocktree, South Tawton, and who, in time of 
Richard II (1377-1399) assumed the name of Wykes. By this 
marriage he became possessed of Cocktree, and of Ilton Manor. 



* Other localities in the neighborhood bore the names, East Week (or Wyke), West 
Week, Weektown (i. e. Wickington), High Week, etc. (See Westcote's Devonshire, 
1630: Polwhele's Devonshire, 1792.) 

tThe owners of the lands in the district termed "Wiche," at this time, were, — the 
Bishop of Constance, Count Moreton, Viscount Baldwin, Robert de Albemarle, 
Radulfus de Pomerei, Odo, and Eldred; the last two being "thanes." The lands of all 
these except Eldred, were occupied by tenants, whose names were, — Brismar, Ordulf, 
Rainer, Ednod (sub-tenant under Rainer), Ulveron (described as "libera femina," a free 
woman), Alward, Brictric. 

jPolwhele (Hist, of Dev. 1792) says: " North Week was (says Risdon) the land of 
William de Wigorin (or Chamberlain) in the reign of Henry III., whose posterity 
assumed the name of Week, from their dwelling. * * * John Week sold North Week 
to George Hunt, on whose death (about 1630) the lands were divided between Luxton 
and Clapp, who married relations of Hunt." [Wigorin is probably but another form of 
Wrey.1

London, of the Visitation of Devonshire by the Heralds, in 
1620, and partly from more recent family records. 

Sir Richard Weekes,^: of Honeychurch, married 

Carey, or Cary, of Clovelly, Devon, by whom he had Richard, 
who had Richard and Symon. Richard had one daughter, but 
no sons. 

Symon (armiger) married Hopwood, and had Henry 

and William. Henry had no issue. 

William, of Honeychurch, married Arminell Yeo, of Hather- 
leigh, Devon, and had Ann, Matilda, Symon, John, William 
Joseph, Arminell, and Izott. 



* He appears to have been contemporaneous with Sir Richard, of Honeychurch (men- 
tioned later on this page), and may have been the same person. 

t Perhaps the same with William who was living at the Visitation of Devon by the 
heralds in 1563: the locality is termed " Northwick " in the record.

1658, (now in possession of W. Hill Budgett, Esq., of Bristol, 
whose wife is a descendant from Richard, in the sixth genera- 
tion). 

Richard (b. about 1640), 1. near Goudhurst, Kent, or Haw- 
hurst or Ewhurst in Sussex ; had son 

John (b. about 1662, d. 1758), of Broad Tenterden, Kent, m.

Sir William Pole mentions Sir Amidas de Wike as living in 
Devonshire in the time of Henry III (12 16-1273), wno had 
son Lawrence, who had sons Walter, Richard, William, and 
others. He also mentions William Wikes, as having been 
chosen Recorder of the city of Exeter in 1360. 

The coat of arms of Wykes, of North Wyke, also of Wykes 
of Cocktree and Weekes of Honeychurch, is described in 
Burke's Heraldry as, " Ermine, three battle-axes sable " : the 
crest, " an arm embowed, in armor proper, holding a battle-ax 
gules."' 5 * The mottos, or legends, are : " Cari Deo nihilo 
carent," (Those dear to God lack nothing) ; " Vitae via virtus," 
(The way of life, virtue) ; " Prsesta et persta," (Stand first, and 
stand firm). 

The records of the North Wyke and Honeychurch branches 
of the family, as above given, are evidently not complete ; and 
while the name of George is not found in these records prior 
to the emigration to New England, this fact does not invali- 
date the claim that George, of Dorchester, was of this family. 



* Ermine, a white field with black spots ; sable, black ; embowed, bent ; prober, of 
natural color ; gules, red. 



24 WEEKES— WEEKS. 

It is quite possible that he was descended from William, of 
Exeter ; as Roger Clap, whose sister was the wife of George 
Weekes, was a resident of that city some time before his 
coming to this country in 1630. But this William was prob- 
ably of the North Wyke family. Symon, emigrant in 1634, 
(of whom, however, no trace has been found in this country,) 
is noted as of Exeter. 

There is now no trace of the family at Honeychurch ; and 
North Wyke is not now the designation of any locality in the 
neighborhood. Investigations made personally by W. Hill 
Budgett, Esq. (before mentioned), and by John A. Weekes, 
Esq., of New York City, have resulted as stated. Many 
records and monuments were destroyed during the civil wars. 

An account of the Wykes family of Herefordshire is found 
in the "Visitation of Herefordshire, A. D. 1569," in the 
Harleian MSS. in the British Museum ; beginning with Will- 
iam,* who lived early in the 15th century. Some descendants 
lived in Somerset, also some in London. 

As the early family traditions, as well as the statements of 
the early historians, claim that GEORGE WEEKES was from 
Devonshire, — as the earliest immigrants wrote the name 
WEEKES, — as no trace has been found of any other than the 
Devonshire family and its branches in England using this 
form, — and as no contradictory evidence has been found, — his 
connection with this family is assumed, and its coat of arms 
appropriated as a suitable heading to this chapter. The 
battle-axes on the escutcheon, and the blood-stained ax held 
aloft by a mailed arm, constitute a decidedly warlike emblem ; 
and down to this day, through the centuries that have elapsed 
since its origin, there has been found in the family a goodly 
measure of combativeness, in such manifestations as occasion 
has required. And the regard for purity and justice, indicated 
by the ermine ground, has not been wanting. 



* Probably descended from Sir Wyke, a knight to whom William the Conquerer 

granted land on the Humber. 



II. 

GEORGE WEEKES, 



OF 

DORCHESTER. 



WILLIAM, AMMIEL, JOSEPH, 



1 1 







(/to-- ypzzKu 



ux£e t 



GEORGE WEEKES, from Devonshire, England, (place 
and date of birth not known,*) came to Dorchester, Mass., in 
the same ship with Rev. Richard Mather, in 1635, five years 
after the original settlement in 1630. There is a tradition, 
that four brothers came together ; that one was drowned in 
landing ; that one settled near Boston ; that one went " east," 
and one " southwest." The known facts in the histories of 
GEORGE of Dorchester, and of THOMAS of Huntington, L. I., 
and Francis of Oyster Bay, L. I., (who are believed to have 
been brothers of George, and of whom some account is herein- 
after given,) are substantially in harmony with this tradition : 
the one drowned may have been " Jo : [Joseph] age 26," men- 
tioned in Chap. XII as an emigrant in 1635, of whom no later 
trace has been found. George's wife, Jane, was a sister of 
Roger Clap (known afterwards as " Captain " Clap), who came 
with the first party of colonists in the ship " Mary and John."f 



* He is said by one of the historians of New England to have been " about forty years 
of age " at the time of his coming to America ; and to have brought two or three child- 
ren with him. If there were three children — as was probably the case — the eldest need 
not have been born earlier than 1629 — the third, Ammiel, whose age is known, having 
been born about 1633. Roger Clap, brother-in-law of George Weekes was born April 
6, 1609. Thomas Weekes, of Huntington, L. I., was born about 1612, being 23 years of 
age at the time of his leaving England, 1635. Francis Weekes, of Oyster Bay, was born 
about 1616 : [see Arnold's History of Rhode Island, p. 103.] In view of these facts, it 
seems reasonable to suppose that George Weekes was not over thirty years old when he 
came, instead of " about forty." 

t He was of Salcombe Regis, about twelve miles east from Exeter, in Devonshire. 
This family may be of Danish origin : Osgod Clapa was a Danish noble at the court of 
Knut (Canute), King of England 1017-1036. 



28 GEORGE, OF DORCHESTER. 

Mr. Weekes is spoken of as " a man in high estimation, of a 
religious family." He was evidently a man of superior culture 
for his time, and held a prominent place in the colony. He 
and his wife were admitted to the church Dec. 21, 1639 ; and 
he was "made ffree " May 13, 1640. He was one of the 
"Seven Men" (Selectmen) of the town in 1645, 1647, 1648, 
and perhaps in other years ; and was frequently appointed to 
other positions of trust. He was a surveyor, as well as a 
farmer ; and was often placed on commissions to lay out roads, 
to determine town lines and farm boundaries, etc. He was 
one of three trustees appointed by one Edward Bullock, who 
returned to England in 1649, and left his property in the 
colony to be administered for the benefit of his wife and 
children. 

Mr. Weekes appears to have taken an especial interest in 
the cause of education ; his name appearing in the town 
records more than once in connection with the subject of free 
public schools. In the old town records of Dorchester, now 
in the office of the City Clerk, Boston, is recorded a convey- 
ance, made in 1641, of Thompson's Island to the town for 
school purposes, signed by seventy citizens, of whom George 
Weekes was one.* 

The exact location of the house and lands of George 
Weekes is not known : James Blake (b. 1688, d. 1750), author 
of " Annals of Dorchester," prepared a map of the town, 
showing the several locations of the early settlers ; which map 
was on one occasion produced in court for reference, since 
which no trace of it has been found. 

William T. Carlton, Esq., of Dorchester, (now living,) has 
drawn up a map showing the location of some of the lands of 



* A fac-simile of his signature to this document (which was the best one of the seventy) 
is found at the head of this chapter, and in the dedication. The fac-simile on the title- 
page is that of a signature made in 16^4. His autographs are found in the town records 
referred to, on pages 62, 137, 402, 405, 406. The fac-simile of the autograph of his wife 
Jane, is taken from her signature to a document dated in 1658, now on file in the State 
House at Boston. Hers is the best of the twenty-eight signatures of women in this 
paper. 



GEORGE, OF DORCHESTER. 29 

the early settlers. According to this map, George Weekes 
owned part of " Lot No. 19 " (the whole being 20 a., 2 q., 23 r.) 
in the " first division " of the " Cow Walk." The south line 
of this lot corresponded with what is now the north line of 
Harvard street, and extended from a point at or near the 
junction of Harvard and School streets, 1,320 feet (a quarter 
of a mile) westerly, — such south line being now intersected 
nearly in the middle by the N. Y. & N. E. R. R., and is within 
a few steps of the Harvard street station of the said road. Lot 
No. 19 was owned by George Weekes and four others ; and his 
share is supposed to have been the southern portion, bounded 
on the south by what is now Harvard street. It will be seen, 
from the inventory of his estate (Appendix A. 1) that he 
owned several other tracts of land. The one above described 
was probably the " home lot." The author visited this spot 
in September, 1884; also two large rocks about half a mile 
west (in West Roxbury Park), on which no doubt the Weekes 
boys played more than two centuries ago ; also drank from a 
spring near by, where the boys of the olden time often slaked 
their thirst. 

In the will of John Greenaway, 1652, his house lot of " five 
acres more or less," is described as lying " between George 
Weekes on the west and Richard Leeds on the east." 

George Weekes died Dec. 28, 1650, as appears from the 
original inventory of his estate now on file in the Probate 
Office at Boston ; a copy of which, made by the author, is 
given in the Appendix (A. 1.). His widow married Jonas 
Humphrey, as his second wife ; he died March 19, 1662 ; she 
died August 2, 1668, leaving a will, a copy of which is herein- 
after given : (Appendix A. 2.) 

The spelling of the name was changed to Weeks in the 
course of one or two generations ; it is so spelled on the 
gravestone of Ammiel Weeks, in 1679 ; also in the signatures 
of the sons of Ammiel, in a document in the Appendix. 
Ammiel himself wrote the name as did his father ; and the 



30 GEORGE, OF DORCHESTER. 

ancient spelling is retained to this day in the Harwich branch 
of the family. The descendants of Barber (32), son of Heze- 
kiah (26), write the name Wicks ; their progenitor, Barber, 
having so spelled the name in consequence of being told that 
such was the correct form, and the children not thinking it 
worth while, when informed of the mistake, to correct it. It 
is to be regretted that the older and correct form of the name 
— WEEKES — has been displaced by abbreviated forms ; and it 
is hoped that some of the descendants of George VVeekes who 
will learn from this work how the name should be written, will 
help to correct the error, at least in part. 

A part of the house in which George Weekes and family 
probably sojourned until they had one of their own, (being the 
house built by Roger Clap, brother of Jane Weekes), is still 
standing in Willow Court, Dorchester, and was visited by the 
author, Sept. 11, 1883. 

The descendants of George Weekes, of the earlier genera- 
tions, settled in the eastern and central parts of Massachusetts, 
in portions of which state many of the family are found at 
this day. One greatgrandson removed to Pomfret, Conn., but 
his descendants left that state about a hundred years since. 
Branches of the family are now found in nearly all the 
Northern, Middle and Western states; and there are a few in 
Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Louisiana, and the District of 
Columbia. 

While some have been graduates of colleges, and a few have 
become clergymen, physicians, lawyers, etc., — a large propor- 
tion have been farmers, many have been mechanics, a goodly 
number have been engaged in mercantile pursuits, and many 
members of the Cape Cod and Maine branches have been sea- 
faring men. 

It is a noteworthy fact, that the clergymen (five in number) 
were very nearly related to each other : Rev. William R. 
Weeks, D. D. (695), his brother Rev. David J. Weeks (696), 
their nephew Rev. Joseph Weeks (701), their cousin Rev. 



GEORGE, OF DORCHESTER. 3 I 

Holland Weeks (775), and the son of another cousin, Rev. 
George A. Weeks (825). The first and third were ordained 
as Presbyterians, the second and fourth as Congregationalists, 
and the last as a minister of the Protestant Episcopal Church. 

While of various shades of theological belief, — " orthodox " 
and " heterodox," — the members of the family have been in 
general, so far as known, people of good character, and useful 
in a quiet way in the communities in which their lot has been 
cast ; many of them holding positions of trust, both secular 
and ecclesiastical. Thus far, the author has not learned of any 
who have been especially a disgrace to the family ; the nearest 
approach to it was the case of one poor fellow about two 
hundred years ago who was charged with having appropriated 
a cheese that did not belong to him. It ought not to be 
thought strange, if in a flock of so many hundreds, a few 
should have come short of what is altogether commendable ; 
but, on the whole, the author's investigations have confirmed 
him in the belief that the descendants of George Weekes have 
a right to a just pride in their ancestors. 

While few have been very poor, and while only a very small 
number have become wealthy, — whether poor or otherwise, no 
ignis fattens of an " estate in England " awaiting claimants 
appears to have disturbed their contentment. 

The general type of the family, as to physical characteristics, 
may be described as follows : of good stature, though not very 
tall ; with light complexion, brown hair, sandy beard, blue or 
bluish-gray eyes, short nose, eyebrows somewhat prominent. 
Mental and moral characteristics : temperament distinctly 
intellectual, not passionate ; of decided, self-formed opinions, 
expressed readily ; well-informed, even when not " liberally " 
educated ; wearing lightly the bonds of party, theological or 
political ; not greatly ambitious, but interested in whatever 
concerns the public welfare ; friendly and social, with a good 
sense of humor, though rather of the passive than the active 
kind ; domestic in tastes and habits ; deferential to woman ; 



32 GEORGE, OF DORCHESTER. 

with a strong sense of obligation, and faith in ideals ; lacking 
the artistic impulse ; and with the esthetic side of the nature 
less developed than any other. Individuals, of course, vary- 
widely in their make-up, inheriting traits from the mother as 
well as from the father ; but there does appear to be a distinct 
family type, with qualities substantially as stated. 

The children of GEORGE and Jane Weekes were : 

i. William, b. in England: [III.] 

2. Jane, + probably b. in England ; m. Benjamin Bates, of Hingham ; he 
d. Nov. 28, 1678 ; and in June, 1679, she m. Paine, of Boston. 

3. Ammiel, b. in England, 1632 or 1633 : [IV. J 

4. JOSEPH, b. Dorchester, Mass., date unknown : [IX.] 



* Jane was probably older than Ammiel, but whether older or younger than William, 
is not known. As the first child of William was born Feb., 1651-2, he was probably 
enough older than Ammiel to admit of another between them ; so I have ventured to 
place Jane in the gap.

WILLIAM, 2 {George), b. in England, probably about 1628-9, 
was " admitted to ffreedome and tooke his oathe," May 3, 
1665. There is no record of his admission to the church ; his 
wife was admitted at the same time with his brother Ammiel 
and wife — May 18, 1656. Land was granted him by the town 
in 1652 ; in the same year he was paid for certain writing done 
for the town. He was fence-viewer in 1653 and in other years. 
In 1664, (about four years after the " Restoration,") he, with 
his brothers Ammiel and Joseph, and about a hundred others, 
signed a petition to the " General Court " (z. e., Legislature), 
requesting that measures be taken to have the rights and 
privileges of the people confirmed. <Jn 1674, he was chosen 
" Clerk of the Writs," and Registrar of Births, Marriages and 
Deaths ; and was the " bold innovator " who restored the 
practice of designating the months by the " heathen " names, 
instead of numbers. He held these offices at the time of his 
death, which took place December 13, 1677, — his will having 
been made three days before.* His widow, Elizabeth, f mar- 
ried Timothy Mather as his second wife, March 20, 1678-9. 
On the 17th of September, 1680, she, as executrix for her late 
husband, William Weekes, conveyed certain lands to Capt-

AMMIEL WEEKES,

DORCHESTER. 



SON OF GEORGE. 



IV 



— 3.— 

AMMIEL, 2 * (son of George^) b. in England in 1633, was 
admitted to the church in Dorchester, with his wife Eliza- 
beth,! May 18, 1656; was "made ffree and took his oathe " 
May 6, 1657. The earliest mention in the town records of his 
holding land, is in 1657. He was a constable in 1673 ; was 
one of a commission to run a town line in 1673, again in 1674 
and 1678 ; he held other positions of trust at different times. 
It would appear from the inventory of his estate (Appendix, 
A. 5) that he inherited the profession of land surveyor from 
his father. He died April 20, 1679, aged 46. His wife Eliza- 
beth was administrator of his estate. On the 13th of January, 



*The above is a fac-simile of his autograph, of date March 23, 1669-70, on page 213 
of the Dorchester town records, now in the office of the City Clerk, Boston. The fac- 
simile of her signature is taken from her bond as administrator of his estate, for copy of 
which see Appendix, A. 4. 

t A manuscript in the handwriting of the father of the author, states that her maiden 
name' was Gore, and that she was the first child born in Boston. Both statements are 
erroneous. There was no family named Gore in Boston at that time : John Gore, the 
first settler of the name, lived in Roxbury, and had no daughter Elizabeth. The only 
birth mentioned in the Boston records of a child named Elizabeth, who could have been 
in the 90th year of her age in 1723 (as was the case with the wife of Ammiel,) is that of 
Elizabeth, daughter of William and Elizabeth Aspinwall, b. Sept. 30, 1633 ; and she was 
not the first child born in Boston. 

(_Vu iCCuisyyv fl^-pist-twc^vE^ was, in 1629, deacon of the church at Charlestown, 
whence he removed early to Boston. Taking an active part in behalf of Mrs. Anne 
Hutchinson, (who was condemned and banished from the colony on account of her 
religious views,) he was disfranchised, disarmed and banished. He went to Rhode 
Island, and was the first Secretary of that colony. In 1642 he returned to Boston, and 
was reconciled to the church and state. He afterwards returned to England, where he 
died. The fact that Peter Aspinwall — probably a near relative of William, perhaps 
brother or son — was one of the sureties on the bond of Elizabeth Weekes, (above 
referred to,) gives color to the theory that she was the daughter of William Aspinwall.

1718-19, at age 85, she testified in regard to the identification 
of property of John Glover, and, on account of infirmity from 
sickness or from age, signed by affixing her mark O. She died 
April 10, 1723, in her 90th year. 

The following are the inscriptions" on the gravestones of 
Ammiel and his wife, now standing in the southwest part of 
the old graveyard in Stoughton street, near Upham's corner, 
Dorchester :

The location of the land of Ammiel Weekes has not been 
.ascertained. A tract including " Weekes' Hill," against which 
Thomas Davenport's land abutted, is supposed to have 
belonged to Ammiel ; but this has not been identified. 

CHILDREN : 

264. William, b. ; bp. Aug. 26, 1655. He appears to have been 

at Worcester in 1685 and 6, in which latter year, by deed of Jan. 4, he and 
wife Joan sold land in W. to Isaac Bull, and to have gone thence to Enfield 
(now in Conn., then within the jurisdiction of Mass.) He was one of a 
company who made a settlement at Northfield, taking the home-lot and 
meadow originally set off to Eleazer Warner, who had forfeited his claim. 
In 1688 he appears to have held a lot of " about 7 acres " in " Wells plain," 
on the east side of and bounded west by " the great river." He made a 
will— date not found — by which he gives all his estate to his wife during her 
life, " for her comfort," then what she leaves at her death to his " kinswoman 
Elizabeth Williams and her heirs forever " : the name of the wife not being 
mentioned. He died at Enfield, probably not having yet removed to North- 
field. His inventory was taken July 29, 1690, and the will probated Sept.

30. His widow died Aug. 12, 1690, and an account of " such things as were 
not taken in his inventory," was made, and filed at the same time with the 
probate of his will. As his will makes no mention of any children, the 
obvious inference is, that there were none. The West Northfield family, 
some account of which is given elsewhere, (Ch. X,) could not therefore 
have been descended from him.

stable, only child and heir of Ammiel Weekes, late of Dorchester," to 
Timothy Green, of certain lands which the said Ammiel had received as 
bounty lands on account of service in the expedition to Canada, above men- 
tioned. The necessary inference is, that neither the brother nor sisters of 
George, nor any children of theirs, were then living.]

GEORGE, 4 {Ammiel, Ammiel, George^) b. Dorchester, March 
20, 1689 ; r. to Boston, and thence in 17 14 to Harwich, Barn- 
stable Co. He m. Oct. 15, 17 14, Deborah (b. May, 1687), d. of 
Ananias Wing.r He was dismissed from the Old South 
Church, Boston, March 27, 1720, and joined the church at 
Harwich, " North Side," (now Brewster,) then under the care 
of Rev. Nathaniel Stone. He afterward removed to the south 
part of the town, where many of his descendants now live, 
and where he carried on a farm. 

He was not " liberally" educated, but was well versed in the 
theological books of the day, and was very familiar with the 
Scriptures. In 1730, though not " ordained " by human hands, 
he commenced preaching to the Indians, who were located 
toward the south shore, and far removed from the meeting- 
house, which was on the north side of the parish of twenty- 
three square miles. Mr. W. built a house of worship for the 
Indians, at his own expense. Notwithstanding these facts, the 
pastor, Mr. Stone, objected, but does not appear to have 
insisted on a discontinuance. Learning, however, that Mr. W. 
had on one or more occasions preached to some of his white 
neighbors, — who no doubt were glad to assemble occasionally 
on a week-day or a stormy Sabbath, for religious instruction 



* The above is a fac-simile of the autograph of George Weekes, as signed to a petition

relating to " Land," pp. 441-3-

GEORGE, OF HARWICH. JJ 

and conference, — being, as they were, so far removed from 
their regular place of Sabbath worship, — Mr. Stone evidently- 
thought that the dignity and importance of his office were at 
stake, and wrote to the " offender " a letter of admonition, in 
which he " minded him of the case of Uzza and Uzziah, who 
ventured on what belonged only to the priests." He also 
afterwards complained to the church in regard to the matter, 
taking these among other grounds : that " the commission in 
Matt. 28 : 19 cannot be given to people in common, but to 
some distinguished qualified persons " ; that Mr. W. had " no 
more if so much as early common education " ; that " the 
making of the ministers of the lowest of the people is in scrip- 
tures disallowed " ; that he had " thrust himself into the 
ministry " ; that he had " preached to a people of whom I 
have the pastoral charge, without my leave, and against my 
declared mind " ; that if one may preach to a part of " my 
flock," another may preach to another part, and " what then 
becomes of the pastoral office ? " " yea, where is any flock for 
me to feed ? " There does not appear to have been any charge 
of want of orthodoxy, or of any attempt to injure the influ- 
ence of the pastor, or to keep any of " the flock " from the 
regular ministrations of the pastor. How gladly would the 
ministers of the present day welcome such a co-laborer ; but 
we should not judge the men of the past too severely in the 
light of the present. 

Some years later, Mr. W. seems to have taken pity upon an 
unfortunate woman, — probably more sinned against than sin- 
ning, — and taken her with her child into his own house, giving 
her shelter and employment, and treating her kindly. Some 
took offense at this, and would not come to the Lord's table 
with him ; in view of which state of feeling he absented him- 
self from the communion, presumably in order not to keep 
others away. On being called to account for his absence, he 
made explanations which were accepted by the church as in a 
measure satisfactory ; but at the same time he was advised 



78 GEORGE, OF HARWICH. 

" to dismiss the woman " from his house, and to " avoid her 
conversation as much as is convenient, or at least inform us of 
your reasons which prevent you from doing this if you think 
proper." There seems to have been no charge against him of 
any impropriety, except so far as his kindness to the unfortun- 
ate woman was deemed to be such ; and whatever explanation 
he may have made seems to have been accepted. He, a plain 
unassuming man, was far in advance of his time in his ideas of 
the duties and privileges which belong to each member of 
Christ's flock ; and he appears to have possessed more of the 
spirit of his Master than did some of those who found fault 
with him. 

The fault found with him by the minister and others, for 
doing what he considered his Christian duty and privilege, in 
regard to both matters, was no doubt a principal cause of the 
clouding of his mind in the latter part of his life, which led to 
aimless wanderings about the country. He died from ex- 
posure to cold in the low ground south of Harwich Academy, 
known from the circumstance as " Weekes's Hollow " to the 
present day — being then over eighty years old. 

A sermon preached by him in 1726, on occasion of the 
remarkable preservation of Ebenezer Taylor, who was buried 
for ten hours in a deep well, has been recently reprinted ; with 
an essay entitled " A Parent's Advice to his Children," (in 
which he declaims and argues very earnestly against the great 
sins of wearing periwigs, and of extravagance in dress) ; also 
a sketch of his life by Sidney Brooks, a descendant.

1841 ; she d. July 11, 1868, aged 84. He was a " well-to-do " 
farmer ; owned a large farm. He had his peculiarities: one of 
which was a fondness for puzzling his listeners by ambiguous 
language, which he would explain after enjoying their per- 
plexity. He took delight in coupling apparent selfishness with 
generosity ; as for example : the minister passing his orchard 
took an apple from an over-hanging limb ; Mr. W. sent him a 
letter threatening prosecution for the trespass ; on the min- 
ister's prompt apology, and asking how much would satisfy 
him, he replied that he would be content with five dollars ; the 
minister handed him the amount, which he took, and immedi- 
ately returned with another bill of like amount.

five years ; was town clerk and treasurer four years. He 
fought at Breed's Hill ; also in the battle of Long Island. It 
is related of him, — as showing his mechanical genius, and as 
illustrating the strictness of the views then prevalent in regard 
to the Sabbath, — that at a house where he, then a mere boy, 
stopped with his father to rest, on their seven miles walk to 
" meeting," on the <: North side," he so carefully examined a 
wooden spoon, that he was able, with his father's tools, to pro- 
duce a fac-simile on Monday ; and that his father, while 
expressing admiration of his work, reproved him for breaking 
the Sabbath by his study of the model on the Lord's day- 
He fell from the hay-mow in his barn, and broke his neck, May

* The data in regard to the early history of this branch are imperfect ; the court house 
and the town hall, with the public records, having been burned by the British in 1775. 
A partial destruction of records by fire occurred at a later period. 

t Capt. John Mussey had four children, the eldest of whom, John (b. Oct. 15, 1790), 
is still living. The author is indebted to this venerable representative of past genera- 
tions for valuable information in regard to the family history, including the clew which 
led to the discovery of the identity of William of Falmouth with William of Dorchester. 
The author had a pleasant interview with the old gentleman, at his home in Portland, in 
Sept., 1884.

VII. 



OF DORCHESTER.* 

JOSEPH, 3 (Anwiiel, Geo?-ge,) b. at Dorchester, Sept. 3, bp. 
Sept. 8, 1667; m. Sarah (b. Feb. 14, 1662), d. of William Sum- 
ner, Jr., and s. of Deliverance (w. of his bro. Ebenezer), and 
widow of Joseph Turell, of Boston, (by whom she had Sarah, 
b. Oct., 1679, and Humphrey, b. May, 1681.) Joseph Weeks 
and his wife were admitted to the church, June 16, 1693. He 
was a " webster" (or weaver), by occupation. He was clerk 
of a military company in 1689; a constable in 1/11. His wife 
d. Feb. 12, 1735-6; he d. Jan. 8, 1745-6; his real estate was 
divided between his sons Joseph and Ebenezer, who paid off 
the shares of their sisters. The "home lot" corresponded 
with the block now bounded by Washington, Norfolk, With- 
ington and Euclid streets, (except the lot occupied by the old 
Dorchester Town Hall, now used as a Ward Room.) The 
house was on the east side, about midway between Norfolk 
and Euclid streets. The ''pasture" of 18 acres, 1 qr., 25 r., 
and the field of 2 a., 2 qr., 24 r. (named in the inventory of his 
estate, Appendix, A. 8), together formed a parallelogram 
(except an irregularity at the southeast corner), bounded 
easterly by what is now Cemetery street, northerly by a line 
running from Cemetery street along the south side of the 
Catholic cemetery and so on to Lyons street, westerly by 



* Fac-simile of his signature as surety on the bond of his brother Ebenezer, adminis- 
trator of the estate of their brother Thomas. (Appendix, A. 6.) 



134 JOSEPH, OF DORCHESTER. 

Lyons street and the line of the same southerly to Jones 
avenue, southerly by Jones avenue and the line of the same 
extended easterly to Norfolk street, and southeasterly by Nor- 
folk street. The " Dorchester " station of the N. Y. and N. 
E. R. R., is on this tract. The field of about i\ acres occupied 
the central one-third of the north part of the tract, and 
extended about two-fifths of the distance across it toward the 
south : the stone wall which inclosed this field at the time of 
Joseph Weeks's death, remained standing for about 130 years.* 
The inscription on the gravestone of Mrs. Weeks, in the old

1809, the three highest — of whom he was one, and the vale- 
dictorian, — being designated as " pari honore," (of equal 
honor.) He was employed as a tutor in the college for a short 
time ; entered the Theological Seminary at Andover, Mass., in 
June, 1810; his stay, however, was very brief. His first ser- 
mons recorded in his Journal of Preaching (which was carefully 
kept during his life) were preached Feb. 10, 181 1, at Cornwall, 
Vt., from Jer. 8 : 20, and Jer. 7 : 8. In December of that year 
he was called to the pastorate of the Presbyterian church at 
Plattsburgh, N. Y., and was ordained there Feb. 16, 18 12,* and 
promised a salary of $500 per annum. The disturbances 
caused by the war, prevented the church from fulfilling its 
contract, and he preached his last sermon there in June, 18 14. 
Early in 181 5, he took charge of Morris Academy, at Litch- 
field South Farms (now the town of Morris), in Connecticut. 
William and Edward, sons of Rev. Lyman Beecher, D. D., 
(then pastor of the church at Litchfield,) were among his 
pupils. The latter gratefully recognizes, and has expressed to 
the author, his great indebtedness to his teacher for his own 
accurate and thorough classical and biblical knowledge. In 
the autumn of 1818, Mr. W. removed to Clinton, Oneida Co., 
N. Y., where he was engaged in teaching until July, 1820, 
when he took charge of the church at Paris Hill, in an adjoin- 
ing town. He remained here until the summer of 183 1 — 
teaching a school the last two years, in addition to his pastoral 
duties. In August he removed to Utica, teaching a school 
and preaching to a little church in the western suburbs. Early 
in the summer of 1832, he removed to Newark, N. J., having 
accepted a call to the pastorate of the Fourth Presbyterian 
Church at that place. In 1837, ms income from this source 
being inadequate, he opened a school in his own house, which 
grew to be a large and flourishing school for a time. His

health becoming precarious, and the church becoming weak, 
he preached his last sermon (so intended) Sept. 7, 1845, from 
2 Tim. 4 : 6-8. He continued teaching a few pupils until the 
autumn of 1847 — his l ast work of this kind being the prepara- 
tion for college of Wm. S. Karr, (Rev., D. D.,) now Prof, in 
the Theological Seminary at Hartford, Conn. During the 
most of his active life, he was both preacher and teacher : 
preaching somewhere on the Sabbath when in charge of a 
school ; and often teaching young men in his own house while 
doing pastoral work. In theology he was a " Hopkinsian Cal- 
vinist " ; in regard to church government, theoretically a Con- 
gregationalism though generally serving as pastor to Presby- 
terian churches. He seldom wrote his sermons in full, but 
preached from a carefully-studied " brief," witten in short- 
hand ; making free use of quotations from the Bible. As a 
teacher, he was thorough, aiming to train his pupils to think, 
not merely to absorb. He had a useful knowledge of eight or 
ten languages, ancient and modern. He was a frequent con- 
tributor to the religious periodicals of the day. He was the 
author of " Pilgrim's Progress in the Nineteenth Century," 
" Nine Sermons on the Decrees and Agency of God," " Scrip- 
ture Catechism," " First Lessons in Greek," " Missionary 
Arithmetic," and a series of " Short Tracts." His " First 
Lessons in Latin " was printed on a domestic press by his 
sons, for use in his school at Newark. He was decided and 
outspoken on the great moral, theological and political quest- 
ions of the day : an anti-mason ; an early advocate of total 
abstinence ; an earnest and outspoken " abolitionist," he had 
the honor of being interrupted by a mob while preaching to 
his own congregation in Newark, on the " sin of slavery," in 
the summer of 1834. He was a kind, genial man ; was noted 
for his love of little children. He was a natural mechanic; at 
one time he constructed the apparatus needed for illustration, 
in giving a course of lectures on natural philosophy. The 
degree of " D. D." was conferred by Williams College in 1828.

* In the Marlborough town record, is recorded the marriage of Mary Weeks and 
Solomon Bowker, April 21, 1770; also her death, Feb. 11, 1771. The names of her 
parents are not given. This must have been some other than the daughter of Ammiel : 
possibly the clerk made a mistake, writing Mary instead of Eunice (843), who was cousin 
of Mary and d. of Thomas (830.) The Lamson family record is positive on the point. 
John Lamson and Nathan Sparhawk were appointed administrators of Ammiel's estate, 
after the deatli of the widow, who was executrix ; and Lamson and his descendants 
occupied the Weeks farm in North Brookfield for four generations.

t The Lancaster Mills are the largest establishment in the country for the manufacture 
of ginghams. The buildings contain fourteen acres of floor space, the weaving room 
being the largest room of the kind in the world. There are in operation 50,000 spindles 
and 2,000 looms ; 1,700 hands are employed ; and 20,000,000 yards of ginghams are pro- 
duced annually. Every improvement and valuable invention is introduced ; a corps of 
chemists and designers are constantly producing new effects in design and color, there 
being now on the books over 170,000 different patterns. Careful attention is given to 
every step of the manufacture, in order to secure the best possible results ; the conse- 
quence being that the "Lancaster ginghams" are universally acknowledged to be the 
best in the world — the beauty and enduring quality of the fabrics, and the stability of 
their colors, being unequaled.

of £$, left by Jane Burgess, and paid in shoes made by John 
Mason. In 168 1, wishing to "take a nurse child of Mr.

GEORGE AND ALDERSON. 221 

— 1 157.— — II58 — 

GEORGE and ALDERSON, of VIRGINIA, 

Were brothers, probably descended from ELIJAH (835), s. of 
Supply. They were revolutionary soldiers, and at the close of 
the war settled in Stafford Co., Virginia, and afterwards 
removed to Bedford Co. 

George had — 

1 1 59. William ; 

1 160. Joseph ; 

1 16 r. Elijah, (r.. to Kentucky) ; also, 

1 162, 1 163, 1 164, 1 165, 1 166. Five daughters, three of whom m. Franklin, 
Overstreet, and Shepherd ; the last two went to Kentucky with Elijah. 

JOSEPH r. to Floyd Co., and had sons — 

1 167. William; 

1 168. Charles C. ; 

1 169. Lewis S. ; 

1 170. Robert. 

ALDERSON had a son— 

1 171. Elijah, who r. to Floyd Co., and had — 

1 172. Lewis ; 

1 173. Alfred ; 

1 174. Matthew; and 1175. A daughter, who m. Archibald Wade,

Mills, furnished the above facts. 

The records of neither the War, State, nor Pension depart- 
ments at Washington, nor the military records of New York, 
Connecticut, or Massachusetts, furnish any trace of George or 
Alderson Weeks.

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES. 

It is thought that the items under this head may be of 
interest. 



BAPTISMS. 
It will be observed, that in early times it was the custom to 
baptize infants as soon after birth as was found convenient ; 
some having been baptized on the day of birth, others when a 
day or two old, and so on ; in one instance, the fact that the 
ceremony was delayed for " a forthnight," seemed to be worthy 
of note on the record. There may have been something of 
the idea of " baptismal regeneration," or of the notion that 
baptism is necessary to salvation, though perhaps not clearly 
defined, or not consciously acknowledged. 



MARRIAGES. 
The earlier marriages were by the magistrates, not by the 
ministers. This may have been by way of protest against the 
claim that marriage is a "sacrament." 



NAMES. 
Among the earlier names we find some specimens of the 
so-called " Puritan " nomenclature ; such as, Deliverance, Expe- 
rience, Grace, Mercy, Mindwell, Peace, Prudence, Renew, 
Repent, Submit, Supply, Thankful ; also some Bible names 
not common in modern times ; such as, Ammicl, Artemas, 



226 MISCELLANEOUS NOTES. 

Damaris, Deborah, Dinah, Dorcas, Eli, Eliakim, Ezekiel, 
Hezekiah, Jabez, Jared, Keziah, Lemuel, Lot, Narcissa, Obed, 
Ruama, Uriah. Besides these, we find some of the old- 
fashioned abbreviations ; such as, Abby, Betsey, Betty, Sally, 
as well as more modern ones, like Addie, Carrie, Hattie, etc- 
There are also some "fancy " names ; such as, Ardelia, Arvilla, 
Elizie, Lepha, Orzellous, Rocelia, Rosalthe, Rosilla, etc. 

Middle names were not common until the present century. 
The earliest instance in the family was JOSEPH WEEKS 
WlTHINGTON,* b. 1 759. The earliest WEEKS with a middle 
name, was SlLAS R. (906), b. 1765 ; the next, JOSEPH H. (692), 
b. 1776. Only ten had middle names previous to A. D. 1800. 
The use of middle names, though common in Italy and 
'Germany from an early date, has become frequent among 
English-speaking people only during the present century. A 
very few instances are known as having occurred as early as 
the latter part of the 13th century. In 1723, of 4900 voters at 
at an election in Lincolnshire, England, only five had double 
names. At an election in Yorkshire in 1829, there were but 
87 such out of 1282 voters. No student at Dartmouth Col- 
lege, N. H., graduated with two names until 1776. 

NUMBERS AND AGES OF WEEKS CHILDREN. 
The number of known descendants of George Weekes, of 
the name, from the second to the eighth generation, is as 
follows : 

2d generation, 4 6th generation, 1 1 5 

3d " 22 7th " 210 

4th " 23 8th " 301 

5th " 48 

There are nearly 400 of the 9th and 10th, and 4 only of the 
1 ith generation. 

The number of children in 113 families, from the 2d to the 
8th generation, averaged about 6^. They were as follows :

this generation, 43 are living, the eldest of whom, JOHN (1062) 
was b. in 1798, and the youngest, William Lyman (i ioi) was 
b. in 1834. 

FORTY-NINE have lived to the age of 80 years or more ; 
one, Mrs. Mercy Williams (846), died at 93 ; her sister, Mrs. 
Sarah Stearns (850), died at 89 ; two were 87 at death 
— Ammiel (846), and Ammiel (914). Five are now living, 
aged over 80: Horace N. (144), Almond (198), Mrs. Hannah

232 OTHER EARLY SETTLERS. 

Such further information as has been obtained in regard to 
the foregoing settlers and their descendants, is given in the 
following pages. 

JOHN, from Staines, Middlesex, England, where he had 
brothers Thomas, Robert, William, — said to have been related 
to Capt. Miles Standish, — was at Plymouth in 1635 ; was made 
freeman in 1636 ; in 1638 he sold his property there and 
removed to the island of Aquidneck, near Portsmouth, N. H. 
He was a follower of Samuel Gorton ; made himself obnoxious 
to the authorities of the Massachusetts colony by his peculiar 
religious and political notions ; was imprisoned for a time with 
Gorton and others ; after being set at liberty, he went to 
Rhode Island, and settled in what is now Warwick, being one 
of the original purchasers from the Indians in 1642-3. He 
was killed by the Indians in King Philip's war, 1675. He had 
a son John : no record has been found of any other. His 
descendants are found in that region and elsewhere, and write 
the name Wickes or Wicks. In the only instance found by 
the author, where the name appears to be a copy of his signa- 
ture, the form is Wickes. 

THOMAS, of Watertown, was probably the same with 
" Thomas, aged 23," above mentioned. He finally settled at 
Huntington, L. I. A further account of him and his family 
will be found in subsequent pages. 

FRANCIS, of Salem, finally settled at Oyster Bay, L. I. 
Further notice of him and his descendants will be found later. 

THOMAS, of Charlestown, was there in 1636; his w. Alice 
was admitted to the church Feb. 12, 1636; he r. to Salem in 
1639; d. 1656; his wd. m. Nicholas Potter. Thomas had d. 
Bethia (b. 1642, m. John Archer), and Hannah (b. 1644, m. 
John Pickman) ; no sons ; was a turner. 



OTHER EARLY SETTLERS. 233 

William, of Boston, purchased a house and lot from John 
Sweet in 1644. He may have been the same who was at 
Salem in 1646. 

JOSEPH was a landholder in Kent Co., Md., 1650 ; how long 
before that date is not known. His descendants are found in 
that state at the present time. He may have been the same 
with "Jo, tanner," before named. 



Zachary, was admitted freeman in the Massachusetts 
colony in 1652 ; nothing further is known of him. 



William and John, probably brothers, of Falmouth, Mass., 
appear there in 1662 and 1675. Some further account of them 
will be found in subsequent pages. 



Leonard and William, probably brothers, appear at 
Portsmouth, N. H., 1656 and 1674, respectively. A further 
account of them is given later. 



CHRISTOPHER, Boston, 1694, had wife Mary, and children : 
Christopher, b. Sept. 24, 1695 ; Mary. b. Sept. 29, 1697. No 
further record has been found. 



Richard, of Attleborough, was probably identical with 
Richard, who emigrated from England in 1690. A record ot 
his family is given later. 

While, as has been stated, there have been, and are now, in 
England, different families of the name, having no connection 
with each other, and while there seems to be reason to believe 

1 



234 OTHER EARLY SETTLERS. 

that more than one of these were represented among the early- 
settlers, yet it seems probable that some of the original immi- 
grants were closely related to each other. 

GEORGE, THOMAS and FRANCIS, were probably brothers ; 
they all wrote their name Weekes ; they all came from Eng- 
land, and to Boston harbor, in the same year — 1635 ; traditions 
among their descendants claim brotherhood ; marked resem- 
blances among their posterity tend to corroborate the theory. 
JOSEPH, who left England the same year, was probably the 
brother of these, who is said to have been drowned in landing. 
William and John, of Falmouth, may have been nephews of 
those named above ; family likenesses among descendants 
indicate a probable relationship. 

No records have thus far been found, showing from what 
particular place or places in England any of these early settlers 
came, except in the case of JOHN, of Plymouth, whose name 
was probably WlCKES. 



THOMAS, OF HUNTINGTON. 235 

THOMAS WEEKES, 

OF HUNTINGTON, L. I.* 

[Name generally written Wickes by his descendants.] 

THOMAS Weekes (probably a brother of GEORGE, of Dor- 
chester, of Mass., and Francis, of Oyster Bay, L. I.) " aged 
23," left England Nov. 20, 1635 ; came at first to Watertown, 
Mass., whence he went soon to Wethersfield, Conn. ; then to 
Hadley, Mass., where he remained but a short time, returning 
to Wethersfield ; he r. to Stamford, of which he was one of the 
original proprietors in 1640 ; r. to Long Island, and settled at 
Huntington. In 1662 he was admitted freeman and chosen 
constable. In April, 1663, he was one of three whose names 
were sent to Hartford for the Court to appoint two of them 
magistrates. He was one of the patentees in 1666. He m. 
Isabella, d. of Richard Harcutt, of Oyster Bay. His children, 
as below, were named in his will, dated June 30, 1670. He d. 
in 1671. He gives to his son Thomas, certain designated 
pieces of land ; to Rebecca 40s., to her three children 20s. 
each ; to Martha £4, and to her children 20s. each. The 
widow, and son John, were named as executors. 

His sons changed the spelling of the name to WlCKES, 
perhaps to distinguish themselves from the sons of Francis 
bearing the same names in the adjoining town of Oyster Bay ; 
and this form is retained by his descendants, with (e\v excep- 
tions, so far as known. 



* It was not in the plan of the author, to include in this work the history of any family 
but that of his own ancestor; but at the solicitation of Mrs. Charles L. Alden, of Troy, 
N. Y., who had been for some time collecting data in regard to the family of Thomas, 
of Huntington, the results of her labors are inserted. The author is indebted to Dr. 
Stephen Wickes, of Orange, N. J., for valuable information, — the history of Eliphalet 
(16) and his descendants especially. 

Many of the items in the early records are fragmentary and disconnected, and have 
been arranged according to apparent probability. 



236 THOMAS, OF HUNTINGTON. 

Many of the family are now to be found on Long Island, 
and in the counties along the Hudson River, some families 
having removed to the Hudson river valley on the evacuation 
of Long Island by the American army, in the Revolution. 

The marriages and baptisms from 1723 to 1779, are mostly 
taken from a record kept by Rev. Ebenezer Prime, who was 
pastor of the church at Huntington during that period.

THOMAS, 2 [Thomas,) b. probably in Oyster Bay, 1650 or 
165 1 (his age being stated in a deposition given by him in 
1676, as " about 25 years ") : probably the same as Thomas, 
" Jr.," who with w. Deborah conveyed land in 1709 to Joseph 
Wood. He was imprisoned by Gov. Andros in 1681 ; received 
a captain's commission in 1690 ; was sent, April 3, 1691, to a 
county convention held for the choice of two members of 
Assembly. In 1704, he gives certain land to his son Philip, 
" in consideration of natural love and affection." In 1714 he 
gives land to his son Samuel for the same consideration ; and 
on the same date, for a like reason, to his son Joseph, the 
house and home lot, with certain reservations to himself and 
wife during their lives. As the grant to Philip in 1704 included 
an " equal fourth " interest in the home lot, and as there is in 
the deed to Joseph no reservation in favor of Philip, it would 
seem that the latter must have died before 17 14. The name 
of " Capt." Thomas appears as late as 1725, in deeds now in 
possession of Dr. Stephen Wickes, of Orange, N. J.

FRANCIS, OF OYSTER BAY. 285 

FRANCIS WEEKES, 

OF OYSTER BAY, L. I., 

In reasonable probability, a brother of George, of Dor- 
chester, and of Thomas, of Huntington, came from England 
in the same year with them — 1635, and located at Salem, Mass. 
Sympathizing with Roger Williams, he went to Providence in 
1636, being then about twenty years of age,* where he married 
Elizabeth Luther. He held the office of secretary of the 
colony. After 1641, he removed to New York, where three of 
his children were born. A plantation lot in Gravesend, L. I., 
was granted him, Aug. 10, 1648. In 1650, he was in Oyster 
Bay, L. I., and became a joint proprietor. He had children — 
Samuel, Joseph, John, Thomas, James, Elizabeth (m. Nicholas 
Simkins), Ann (m. Joseph Carpenter), Daniel : the names of 
five sons appear among the purchasers of additional lands from 
the Indians in 1685. His will (now in possession of John A. 
Weekes, Esq., a descendant, who owns the old homestead) is 
dated June 25, 1687. His descendants are numerous on Long 
Island, in New York City, and along the lower Hudson, with 
some in Connecticut and southern New Jersey. Some retain 
the old form of name- — WEEKES, though the majority use the 
shorter form. The name is spelled in a variety of ways in the 
public records — Weekes, Weeks, Wicks, Wickes, and Wyckes; 
consequently the form of name cannot be depended on as 
proving the family connection. 

Samuel m. a d. of Henry Rudick ; had d. Elizabeth, who 
m. Thomas Youngs. 

JOSEPH m. Elizabeth, d. of Henry Rudick ; had a large 
family — among them, Henry, Jacob, Abraham, Silas, John, 

Charles, Joseph, Micah, Abigail (in. Dodge). He r. to 

Matinecock. Will dated 1754.

302 NATHANIEL, OF HARDWICK. 

NATHANIEL WEEKS, 

OF FALMOUTH AND HARDWICK, MASS. 

The following history of the families in Hardwick and the 
neighboring towns of Ware and Petersham, was obtained, for 
the most part, in view of what seemed a strong probability 
that they were a branch of the family of GEORGE, of Dor- 
chester ; but when the evidence was found that such was not 
the fact, it was thought best to preserve such history as fully 
as it had been procured. 

As nothing in regard to Nathaniel and his family, beyond 
the births of his children, is found in the Falmouth records, — 
and as a group with several of the same names, some of them 
of about the same ages, appears in the towns above named, — 
there seems to be no doubt but that the families are identical. 

NATHANIEL, s. of John, b. Falmouth, Mass., 1676, had wife 
Margaret, and children, — Elizabeth, b. 1703 ; Cornelius, 1706 ; 
Bethia, 1709; Nathaniel, 171 1; Ebenezer, 1714; Thomas, 
1718 ; Content, 1723 ; Judah, 1725."" He appears to have 
removed to Hardwick, with some of his children, — perhaps all 
who were living, — and possibly with grandchildren, in 1743 or 
1744; his w. Margaret was admitted to the church in Hard- 
wick, Nov. 13 of the latter year. 

Thomas was a resident of Hardwick until 1783. 

Content m. Hardwick, Oct. 29, 1742, Isaac Clark. 

JUDAH, probably a grandson, m. (pub. Dec. 4, 1780) Mary 
Clark, of New Stratford, and r. to Bennington, Vt. ; had 
children, — Ira, b. Sept. 28, 1781 ; Polly, b. April 11, 1783; 
Judah, b. April 12, 1785 ; John Clark, b. Oct. 19, 1787 ; Emma, 
b. Nov. 7, 1791. 

Tryphena, probably of this family, m. Hardwick, April 1, 
1827, Solomon W. Ruggles (b. Jan. 9, 1804, d. May 19, 1863) ; 
r. to Fitchburg ; had Benjamin W. (b. March 25, 1828, d. Oct. 
1, 1846), John W. (b. July 17, 1829, d. July 13, 1852).

352 LEONARD AND WILLIAM. 

LEONARD and WILLIAM WEEKS, 

OF PORTSMOUTH, N. H. 

Leonard, b. in England in 1635 ; settled at Portsmouth, 
N. H., where land was granted him in 1656 ; m. about 1667, 
Mary, d. of Dea. Samuel Haines (a descendant in the male line 
from Robert, Earl of Cornwall, brother of William the Con- 
queror), who settled at Winnicut (now in Greenland) in 1667. 
Leonard had children — John, 1668; Samuel [" Capt."], 1670 
(m. his cousin Elinor Haines) ; Joseph, 1672 ; Joshua, 1674 ; 
Mary, 1676 ; Jonathan ; and by second wife Elizabeth he had 
Margaret and Sarah, twins, 1679. He d. 1707. His descend- 
ants are numerous in New Hampshire and Maine ; still, there 
are families in both these states whose connection with him 
has not been traced. 

WILLIAM, at Portsmouth, testified, July 21, 1674, that he 
was 45 years old or thereabouts. He may have been a brother 
of Leonard. The Weekses of Kittery, Me., are thought to be 
his descendants ; he may have been the ancestor of some of 
the Maine families whose line has not been traced. 

The following families and persons are of the Portsmouth 
stock — mostly from the family of Leonard, though some may 
be descendants from William.* 

John, (John, Samuel, Leonard.) b. Greenland, N. H., 1773 ; r -i t0 
Epping with his father ; was a farmer in good circumstances, but 
lost his property by becoming surety for the sheriff ; about 1768-70, 
r. with wife and six children to the Damariscotta river, Me., where 
he inclosed 800 acres of land, which he finally paid for, and settled 
his children about him ; he d. March 20, 1804, at what is now 
known as the " Deacon Weeks place," in Jefferson, Me. He m. 
1753-4, Abigail Piper, of Stratham, N. H. His children were, — 



*Rev. Jacob Chapman, of Exeter, N. H., a descendant from Leonard through both 
father and mother, has been for some years collecting materials for a history of these 
families, with a view to publication. His data will be more full, and probably in some 
cases more accurate, than those here given.

The Maiden records contain the following : 

Mary Weeks m. Thomas Greene, March 22, 1675-6. 

Perez S., Enfield, Mass., witnessed a deed in 1839 ; and Sarah F. 
of Enfield in 1856. 

Joseph, (Cincinnati, O., 1881), is s. of John, s. of John, who went 
from Mass. to Ohio about 1828.

had s. Alfred (b. 1809), whose s. Jeremiah (b. 1835), and his s. S. C. 
were at Allegheny, Pa., 1883. 

In the diary of Jeremiah Bumstead, an attendant at the old South 
Church, Boston— as published in the N. E. Hist. Gen. Register, vol. 
xv, p. 194 — is found the following item, under date of March 29, 
1722 : " Mr. Thacher preached his first sermon by order of author- 
ity, being Mr. Weeks' turn properly." 

The name here should probably be Webb. Rev. John Webb was 
pastor of the North Church ; no other mention has been found of a 
minister named Weeks at the time ; the latter part of the name in 
the M.S. is blurred.

ANCIENT DOCUMENTS. 

The following are copies from the original papers ; made by 
the author (except Nos. 5, 13 and 14). The mode of spelling 
and the use of capital letters and points have been carefully 
followed. In those early times there was no accepted standard 
of spelling ; and it is found that the spelling varies in the 
same document, even when the writer was apparently a fairly- 
educated man for his time. Some of these differences, however, 
are the result of ignorance or want of care. 

The letter u is quite generally found where we should use 
v, and the latter is often found where we should write u : but 
this interchange is not uniform. 

Neither is the use of y for the, invariable : it will be 
observed that it is not used at all in Jane Humphrey's will. 
The character resembling our y, is simply a character for th, 
and is used in the older documents wherever the sound repre- 
sented occurs, whether at the beginning or in the middle of 
words ; and in these it was written just like y, as in later 
writings. The pronunciation was the, not ye.

Peter Wood 

Ebenezer Eames 

Thomas Baker 

The condition of the provisions for his wife, "so long as she shall 
remain my widow," was evidently made in kindness to her and in 
justice to the estate ; its operation being to deter any man too lazy 
to earn his own living, from " making love " to her, with a view to a 
comfortable home and support. But the will was inoperative so far 
as she was concerned ; for he outlived her three years.

NOTES FROM DORCHESTER CHURCH RECORDS. 

In the early times, families did not sit together, as now ; but 
individuals were assigned seats according to their supposed dignity 
— a committee being appointed from time to time by the "society" 
for the purpose. The young men and boys were usually seated in 
the gallerv, when such existed ; and suitable persons were appointed 
to " look after " them. 

In the back part of the old book of Dorchester Church Records, 
are given the "searings" in the meeting house. The date of this 
assignment is not given ; but an examination of dates of marriages 
and deaths shows that it was probably made in 1691. 

In the body of the house, " Widow Weeks "* was the third in 
order in the third seat of the women, old seating ; in the new seat- 
ing, the first in order. 

Joseph Weeks's wifef is the first named in the sixth seat in the 
body of the house, new seating. 

Joseph WeeksJ was the seventh in order of the ten men in the 
first seat in the south part of the east gallery, old seating ; new 
seating, the fourth in order. 

The wife of Joseph Weeks|| was the fourth in order in the second 
seat next the pulpit in the west or women's gallery, in both the old 
and new seating. 

Elizabeth Weeks§ was the sixth in order, in both seatings. 

Names of persons to be catechised, in 1676, include Ammiel 
Weeks, aged 13 ; Ebenezer, it ; Joseph, 8 ; Mary, 20 ; Elizabeth, 
18 ; Thankful, 15 ; Renew, 14 ; Jane, 12 ; Sarah, 8.

POETRY. 

MY ESTATE 

Far away, where mountains lift 

Snowy summits to the skies, 

Where the evening sunbeams sift 

Through a gold and purple rift, 

All my earthly fortune lies. 

On a hillside sloping down 

Toward the early morning light, 
Where the turrets of the town, 
Rising o'er the rooftrees brown, 
Keep it always just in sight, — 

Lies the only land I call 

Mine by right of price or dower: 
The inclosure is but small, 
Yet there's sleeping room for all, 

Though it boasts no hall or tower. 

In the Summer robins sing 
Blithely in the maples' shade ; 

Tenderly the blossoms bring 

Loving messages in Spring, 

To the darlings 'neath them laid. 

Lonely, but not tenantless, 

Is this distant home of mine: 
Careful footsteps sometimes press 
Near my darlings' grave, and bless 
With a loving thought, the shrine. 

Fold away the title deed : 

While I hold this small estate, 

I've a home for future need ; 

Then, I shall not care nor heed 
Whether it be small or great. 



I. BRAINERD (454). 



4IO POETRY. 

IN THE PINES. 

I try to read the earnest thoughts 

Of minds of other ages ; 
The sunbeams quiver through the trees, 

And blur the printed pages. 

I turn a leaf, and try to thread 
The maze where soul is bringing 

Its priceless wealth, but all along 
I hear the thrushes singing, — 

And can but listen to their songs, 
And quaff the sweets before me, 

Which stir among the buds and flowers 
On trailing branches o'er me. 

I read a page where heaven is traced 
Up through the gates immortal ; 

The wild birds capture eye and sense, — 
I sit at heaven's portal. 

The winds come trooping through the pines 
With quiet blessing laden, 

And sweep the cares of life away 
Beyond this peaceful Aidenn. 

The stately pines, like sentinels 
Intent on swerveless duty, 

Shut in this little Paradise 

Of peace and love and beauty. 

If serpents lurk beside the paths 
Where other feet are treading, 

I only see where sweetest flowers 
These lovely nooks are threading. 

I only hear the song of birds 
On graceful pinions whirring, 

And chorus of ten thousand leaves 
In fragrant breezes stirring; — 

And would not have a discord break 
The joy that fills my being, 

While half forgetting all the world, 
Beyond the power of seeing. 

Areola, May ojh, 1876. MRS. R. W. buainerd. 



POETRY. 
OCTOBER. 

The sun has lost its burning blaze, 
The air sifts through a purple haze. 
And all these quiet Autumn days 

Remodel life anew. 
The orange trees show yellow tints, 
Where sunshine through the foliage glints, 
And on the ripening fruit imprints 

Each day a brighter hue. 

The harvesters in laden fields, 

Are gleaning fruits the summer yields ; 

The blackbird, noisy in appeals, 

Is asking for his share ; 
And well he fills his little throat, 
A sentinel gives warning note 
If any doubtful sound afloat, 

Portends a coming snare. 

The fishermen ply busy oars 
Along the reed entangled shores, 
Where briny waters hide their stores 

Through all the Summer days. 
On land and flood 'tis harvest time ! 
October days are in their prime ; 
And morning bell, and evening chime 

Should waken songs of praise. 
Louisiana, 1875. MRS , K . w _ brainerd. 



411 



THE MELANCHOLY DAYS HAVE COME. 

When the autumn fruit is mellow, 
When the leaves are sere and yellow, 
And the blackbird, noisy fellow, 

Chatters o'er the gathered grain, 
Memory in forgotten places 
Seeks for once familiar faces, 
Only finding scattered traces 

Of the graves where they have lain. 



412 POETRY. 



Winter's frost and summer's burning 
Come again ; but no returning 
Spring can satisfy the yearning 

Of the heart's sad autumn day. 
Gone is youth and budding pleasure, 
Lost is manhood's golden treasure, 
Ere old age can watch, at leisure, 

Falling leaves and hopes decay ; — 

Watch with joy and sorrow blending, 
Down the slope of life descending, 
Soon to reach the peaceful ending, 

When all change and loss are o'er. 
Gain ofttimes comes after losing ; 
Wine is made of grapes by bruising ; 
Wheat is never fit for using 

Till it leaves the threshing floor. 

Oct., 1876. MRS. R. W. BR 



COLD. 



The wintry wind is piercing cold, 

Which beats against the pane ; 
The singing birds have left my trees, 

My roses all are slain. 
The land without is desolate, 

The sky is cold and grey ; 
But spring will come again, my dear, 

And bring its sunny May. 

Far colder than the winter time, 
. The blight of passing years, 
Which falls like frost upon our hopes, 

And changes them to tears. 
The world is growing desolate, — 

But up beyond the sky, 
There is a sunny clime, my dear, 

Where summers never die. 

MRS. R. VV. BRAINERD. 



POETRY. 413 

BY THE SHORE, 

Westward across the eternal sea I gaze : 

Far off, beyond my sight, there lies, I know, 

The island of the blest. And there rest all 

Who have lived and died for men. The worthies famed, 

Whom we revere, are there ; nor they alone, 

For every helper of another shares 

Those great ones' seats. 

Wrapped in a golden dnsk 
Down by the happy island's shore they sit. 
Their thoughts are long and calm ; the while they muse 
On human life, the world as it hath been, 
And how their brotherhood is fashioning slow 
The world anew. And with their tranquil thoughts 
Mingles a dream they love — that ages hence, 
Far off, and in some new and unguessed life, 
There may again be deeds for them to do. 

But most, and with most deep content, they muse 
On God, and on what is because He is, 
And what shall surely be. And evermore 
The sea whereby they sit, this sea, chants them 
A mighty song of triumph and of hope. 

1883. RUFUS W. WEEKS (7S4). 



CONTINUITY. 



Through ages slow a high still world swung down, 
And dipped at last into this swarming sphere. 
Our nobler unseen half, if life at all 
It have, in that high world doth quiet dwell. 
The life of motion which the eye beholds 
Hath there no part. We may indeed enforce 
By will a oneness through these differing two, — 
Making the movements of the lower shine 
With light the higher gives us. But, ev'n then, 
These are not in that upper world ; and they 
Shall some time cease, and then the two worlds touch 
For us no more. But, surely as we here 
Have found that high world ever to us real, — 
So sure in it we shall go on to be.

414 POETRY. 

A THEME FROM "TOILERS OF THE SEA." 

Far in the land of the North, where the Baltic's dark waters are raging, 
Stretching along 'twixt the sea and the cliff, lies a fishermen's village. 
Here, in the prime of his earliest manhood, there once dwelt a sailor. 
Born of a race that from time immemorial have toiled on the ocean, 
Hardy and bold as the Norsemen and Vikings— the ancient sea-rovers — 
Strong in the strength of his youth, and brave like his fathers before him, 
Conqueror of winds and of waves, fearing not the fierce monsters of ocean ; 
First of the youths of the village, superior in skill and in valor, 
Winner of all that he sought for, unused to retreat or to failure, 
Praised by the young for his prowess, and praised by the old for his courage ; 
Smiled on by all the fair maidens, who blushed with delight at his notice. 

Sad was the day when his heart awoke but to find itself pinioned, 
Bound by the soft silken cords of love that is stronger than iron ; 
Struggling and striving, but vainly — no struggles nor strivings can break them. 
Sad was the day when he knew no return for his love he might hope for ; 
She who had stolen his heart had given her love to another : 
He who had always been winner, to yield at last to a rival ? 

Low in the side of the cliff, the ebb-tide revealeth a hollow, 
Carved to a rude rocky chair by the waves as they rush when the tide comes. 
There — while the ship that is bearing away a fair bride, his heart's treasure, 
Spreads her white sails like a bird, and floats down through the smooth 

harbor water — 
In its huge arms sits he waiting, and watching the ship on her journey, 
Freighted with all that his heart counted precious, or worthy to live for. 

On creeps the tide o'er the sands, to the foot of the cliff slowly stealing— 
— Slowly the bark with its burden rises and dips in the waters, — 
Higher and higher the waves come, still higher and higher they gather ; 
Now they have reached to his feet, and they kiss them and shrink back 
affrighted ; — 
, — Over the bar and its breakers, and out on the blue heaving billows, 
Till on the line that divides the sea from the sky stands the vessel 
Clearly defined there ; — their terror forgotten, the white waves returning 
Fie on his breast in delight, and fling up their soft arms to embrace him — 
— Only the sails are in sight now, on the dim distant horizon — 
Circling his neck with white fingers, and clasping him closer and closer, 
Touching his lips, — while the vessel has shrunk to a speck in the distance. — 
On sweeps the tide to its hight, the satisfied waters are still now. 
Gone out of sight is the ship, and ended the watch of the watcher.

POETRY. 415 

THE GOLDEN LAND. 

Once, across a desert dreary, 

One broad waste of glaring sand, 
Roamed I, weak and worn and weary, 

Seeking for the Golden Land. 

For they told me when I started 

On this journey, long ago, 
Hopeful, young and happy-hearted, 

Ignorant of pain and woe, — 

That beyond that line of brightness — 
So this desert seemed to me, 

Dazzling in its silvery whiteness 
Like the foam of summer sea — 

Was the Golden Land, enchanted, 

Known to youth of every age, 
By .the hand of artist painted, 

Sung by poet, sought by sage, — 

Land where hopes have glad fruition, 

Land where dreams are dreams no more ; — 

Till before my longing vision 
Seemed to rise its glorious shore. 

Sense enraptured with its beauty, 

Soul enraptured with its bliss, 
What cared I that life meant duty ? 

I who owned estates like this. 

So from childhood's happy valley, 

Out upon the sparkling sand, 
Eagerly I stepped and gaily ;— 

Ah ! that was my Golden Land. 

But I left it, little guessing 

All the wealth I left behind, 
All the beauty, all the blessing, 

That no after- search can find, — 

Ofttimes tripping, sometimes falling, 

Speeding on with flying feet, 
Dreams of bliss my soul enthralling, 

Heeding not the sun's fierce heat ; — 



4 l6 POETRY. 

Of the happy future dreaming, 
Of the glories just before, 

On the far horizon gleaming, 
That enchanted smiling shore. 

And I saw, as I came nearer, 

Waving trees and sparkling streams ; 

Fairer shone the scene, and clearer, 
Brighter than my brightest dreams. 

Groves and gardens softly shaded, 
Stately mansions, snowy white ; — 

But, alas, the vision faded, 

Faded from my ravished sight. 

Then I grew so faint and tired, 
That I only longed for rest ; 

All my glowing hopes expired, 
And despair my soul possessed. 

Now I know the land enchanted, 
That had gleamed before my eyes, 

Was a desert mirage, painted 
On the brazen blazing skies. 

And my feet shall wander ever 
On this burning scorching sand ; 

I shall faint and fail, and never 
Shall I reach the Golden Land.

ERRATA (additional). 



[It is but justice to the printer, to state, that the blame for the errors 
found rests upon the author, who is alone responsible for the proof-reading 
by " copy," — which should have been done twice before printing, in a 
work of this kind, instead of once only, as was the case.]
