TO THE READER 

The work of compiling this genealogy was begun by Mr. 
Brown Thurston, of Portland, Me., in 1888. Although at that 
time Mr. Thurston was far advanced in years (74), nevertheless, 
he collected many facts and much data, and awakened consider- 
able interest in this work. Early in the compilation of this volume 
I gave Mr. Thurston much assistance by personal search among 
probate and other court records, by reviewing published town 
histories, by gathering names from the vital statistics of towns 
and cities and by personal interviews with individuals bearing the 
Greenwood name. Since Mr. Thurston's death, which occurred 
Apr. 18, 1900, I have been actively engaged, unassisted, in push- 
ing this work to completion and I feel much pride in what I have 
accomplished. I give the reader of this volume the ancient Eng- 
lish Greenwood records, which cannot be other than of deep inter- 
est to him. By these records an unbroken line of ancestry can 
be traced from the present day, running through a period of over 
700 years, back to the very beginning of the name Greenwood. It 
is seldom, indeed, that in any published family history has such a 
work as this been accomplished. The English records do not con- 
tain a list of every Greenwood who has descended from the first 
head. Such a list would fill many volumes, but the pedigree fur- 
nished gives a direct line of descent which is reliable and can be 
substantiated. That the name Greenwood had its beginning with 
Wyomarus, the first in the list of the English records, there can 
be no doubt. The earliest pedigrees affirm it and the earliest 
English records of all kinds are in proof of the fact. I have 
ascertained and give the exact locality where Wyomarus Green- 
wode lived and there are to be found in this volume illustrations 
showing home places of his immediate descendants. The earliest 
Greenwood wills recorded at York, England, I have abstracted 
and publish in this work. As showing the varied early spelling of 
the name Greenwood and in throwing light upon the method of 
living in ancient times, these wills are of exceeding interest. I 
have obtained and given in this work an extended account of the 
life, trial and execution of Rev. John Greenwood, an honored an- 
cestor of many Greenwoods in America, who for religious con- 
victions suffered death in England by the hand of the authorities 
of the English Established Church. He was a Separatist and he 
is the accredited founder of the Congregational religion as prac- 
ticed today in New England. 



vi Greenwood Genealogies 

It has taken much time, ])atience and expense to obtain all the 
English information found in this volume and I would particularly 
thank Mrs, M, E. Gibson, the present owner of Greenwood Lee, in 
Heptonstall, Enf^., for much assistance she has ^iven me in col- 
lecting facts in Greenwood history and concerning her own home. 
My thanks for assistance are also due Mr. J. Fred Greenwood, 
of Ilarworth, in Yorkshire, Eng. 

It is surprising what a great amount of difficulty a compiler 
finds in a work of this character. Many families there are that 
keep no records of births, marriages and deaths. In such cases 
town records must be searched and if the search is made by the 
clerk of the town a fee must be paid for the service. Many mem- 
bers of families have become separated — children have grown up 
and gone away. Search for the members must be made ; their 
location is often doubtful and many letters of inquiry sent out 
are returned to the writer unclaimed. The heads of families may 
know something of their own births and marriages but very little 
of their parents, much less of their grand parents and strictly 
nothing of their great grandparents and this necessitates personal 
search by the compiler of church, town or city records. After a 
family has been located and its record obtained then the family 
must be placed under its direct line of descent and this at times 
requires further search of records. 

It has taken years of hard, diligent labor to produce this 
volume. 

I see no reason why every Greenwood in America has not reason 
to feel satisfied Avith the Greenwood family as a whole. If town 
records in rare instances reveal a Greenwood name on the list of 
pauper subjects there are abundant instances that testify to the 
perseverance, thrift, enterprise and capability of the Greenwoods. 
This volume will reveal to you many Greenwoods who have won 
distinction in life and who occupy homes of beauty and abundance 
as a result of their labors. In every avocation of life you find a 
Greenwood name. This volume will tell you of Greenwoods who 
are heads of educational institutions, of Greenwoods well known in 
the ministry of the Gospel ; they are among the skillful physicians 
of the country, are in the list of journalists and authors, are tal- 
ented lawyers, are members of state legislatures, are at the head 
of large and prosperous manufacturing plants and are successful 
merchants. Also do we find Greenwoods who are pursuing the 
healthful avocations of tillers of the soil. 

The family of Greenwoods is not as large as many others in 
America, yet it has many members. 

What we have sought in this volume is positive accuracy. 
Matters of a doubtful nature we leave unpublished. Dates and

names we verify and if there are errors in this work they come 
from the sources of our information. 

Genealogy is not a new study in life. Burk says, "Those only 
deserve to be remembered who treasure up the history of their 
ancestry." It was not beneath the consideration of the creator of 
man, who as author of the Bible, very carefully instructed the 
writer of the book of Genesis to record the genealogy of Noah and 
to give all the facts that made it necessary to so effectually wipe 
out that generation of man from the earth, and with equal care, to 
record the virtues that saved his own family from the same de- 
struction. 

The interest in genealogical research is increasing in America 
as is shown in the number of family histories being published and 
the time has now come when every person of intelligence cares to 
know something of his ancestry'. Prominent men of today are 
learning of their ancestry and making mention of it. 

It seems to us that a work of the character of this volume can- 
not be other than a matter of great interest to every Greenwood. 
In this volume he finds his own record in life. The records in 
plain readable type also of his father, mother, brothers and sis- 
ters are given and if he cares to go back further here are the life 
records of grandparents and great grandparents and all of his 
ancestry running back to the earliest of his name. What a book 
for reference this is ! In no other form can one get such a record 
— so compact, so accessible, so complete. We believe that the 
time is at hand when all individual life records are to be more 
faithfully kept than in the past and the work in the future in 
compiling a volume of this kind will be made less difficult.

EXPLANATION 

The names of Greenwoods and their immediate descendants are 
numbered consecutively through the volume. 

The small figures after each Greenwood name denote the gen- 
eration and the generations begin with the first ancestor in this 
country. 

This character -f- placed before any name, denotes that fur- 
ther on in the book the same number will be found and same name, 
in larger type, placed so as to attract attention at once. Under 
these figures the history and children of the person named are 
given. 

The grandchildren, when introduced after the first appear- 
ance of the name, are set a little further in from the margin than 
the children. 

The indexes are very simple, referring to every name by num- 
ber. There are five indexes. The first contains the descendants of 
Thomas Greenwood of Newton and those who married into that 
family. The second index contains descendants of Nathaniel and 
Samuel Greenwood of Boston, the third refers to the Virginia fam- 
ily, the fourth the Greenwoods and descendants who have come to 
America since the early pioneers and the fifth contains names I 
am unable to connect with any direct line of ancestry.

AXCIENT ENGLISH RECORDS 

The following ancient English records were in the keeping of 
James Greenwood of York in 1715 and were in the keeping of 
Joseph Greenwood Clayton, of New Laithes, County York, Eng., 
in 1816. The first part is written upon parchment and shows a 
direct line of descent from Wyomarus [cater to Maud the Em- 
press] who established a home in the forest in Heptonstall, in 
England, overlooking the beautiful Hebden Valley, 1154, and is 
the progenitor of the Greenwood family. A copy of these records 
is to be found in the College of Arms, London, Eng., and with 
these records is a drawing of the arms of Wyomarus.

THE GREENWOOD ARMS 

A ccMit of arms may be defined as a mark of dignity or distinc- 
tion descending from the fatlier to the son. An old English print 
says that the intention of a coat of arms was to honor and adorn 
the family of him who had deserved well towards his country, to 
make that person more worthy and famous above those who had 
not done service, to the end that others might be encouraged to do 
service also. Coats of arms were intended also to establish a dif- 
ference in lineage between the son of the noble ancestor so that the 
eldest son might be known from the second son, he from the third, 
and so on. 

The ancient Romans, as a distinguishing mark, carried an 
eagle. The ensign of the French (Gallia) was a cock, that of the 
Scandinavians the horse, and the Persians a dove. Constantine, 
the first Christian emperor, instituted the order of Chevaliers and 
the members wore on their breasts the ensign of the cross. From 
Constantine individual families began to wear distinguishing 
marks and from these marks armorial bearing, or coats of arms, 
originated. 

In the early times families that bore marks of distinction were 
those which had been given the right to bear arms and the right 
to carry arms was given only to free men, the gentry, nobility, and 
certain ofl^cers. The privilege of bearing arms was a most hon- 
orable distinction, for it not only testified to the rank of the orig- 
inal founder of the family, but it also testified to the character of 
the founder as well. No dishonorable family was ever permitted 
to bear arms. 

Today in England any person on whom an honorary rank or 
title has been bestowed by the Sovereign is entitled to a coat of 
arms. Any subject of Great Britain, with or without rank or 
title, or any business firm or incorporated body, may petition for 
a coat of arms and if in the judgment of the Earl Marshal in 
England, the Lyon King in Scotland and the Ulster King of Arms 
in Ireland, who each have authority over their respective oflSces, 
the applicant has sufficient standing he may be granted a coat of 
arms. 

Armorial bearings are of two kinds. The highest class consists 
of a shield with side sujjporters, and a crest, along with a motto. 
Only members of the Peerage in England and those specially priv- 
ileged are entitled to use the supporters. The supporters to the 
royal arms of England are a lion on one side and a unicorn on the 

6 



The Greenwood Arms 7 

other side of the shield. The common coat of arms consists of a 
shield with various devices upon its face. A person assigned a 
coat of arms usually selects his own devices and the devices chosen 
represent in some way a history of the family. The devices chosen 
with their arrangement upon the shield is protected by patent and 
can be used only by the patentee. The cost of the patent in Great 
Britain is quite considerable. 

The devices in the Greenwood coat of arms consist of three 
silver St. Andrew's crosses. The crosses are set upon a dark shield 
and are separated by a silver band representing two rafters of a 
house and known as a chevron. The band is ornamented with 
sable furs or ermines. In heraldry the description of these arms 
reads : "Sable, a chevron ermines between 3 saltiers argent." For 
ages the cross has been known as an emblem of religion and in 
these arms of Wyomarus Greenwode they represent interest in 
religious matters or religious zeal displayed by Wyomarus and his 
family. 

A coat of arms in families shows lineal descent. 

Thoresby's history of Leeds, Eng., published 1715, gives the 
date of the arms of Wyomarus de Greenwode as 1154. 

Dictionary of heraldic terms used in Greenwood coat of arms : 

Fess — wide band across center of shield. 

Argent — silver. 

Sable — black. 

Spurrowles — pointed stars. 

Chevron — 'band shaped like rafters of a building. 

Ermines — small marks of the shape represented in the cut. 

Saltier — cross in the form of an X. 

Crest — appendage to edge of shield. 

Demi-lion — half lion. 

Rampant — standing upright. 

Chief — upper part of the escutcheon.

Arms of Rev. John Greenwood, who was rector of Brampton, Norfolk 
County, England, from 1620 to 1663. He was ejected from his ministry in 
1630 by the Parliamentary party but returned again. His daughters, Anne 
and Elizabeth, were born at Brampton. His will proved at Norwich, Eng., 
Oct., 1663, was sealed with these arms and in the will was a reference to a 
ring testator wore, on the stone of which was a cut of the same armorial 
bearings. He was son of Rev. Christopher Greenwood, rector of Shottesham, 
County Norfolk, Eng., who died February, 1607-8, and whose brother, Edward 
Greenwood, was rector of Great Dunham, Swaffham, County Norfolk, who 
died 1591. Description of arms: Sable, a chevron ermines between 3 saltiers 
argent; crest, a demi-lion rampant or, holding in his paws a saltier argent. 

The above are descendants of Wyomarus Greenwode through James and 
wife, Michael. 

Joseph Edmondson, F, S. A., in his Complete Body of Heraldry, published, 
London, Eng., 1780, refers to the above arms as being in use at Burg-Castle, 
in Suffolk, and Castleton, Greenwood and Norton-Bruin, in Oxfordshire. 

J. Bernard Burke in General Armory adds Brookwood Park, County Hants, 
as having Greenwoods using the same arms.

AUJIS OF THE GREENWOODS OF WESTEHTON 

In 1,565 Thomas Greenwood, of I>earings, in Hoptonstall, Eng., and his son, 
Thomas, purehasi-d of Richard Bunny and Bridgett, his wife, lands in Newton, 
Waitcfield, Alverthorpe, Tliorncs and Stanley, in Yorkshire, and by the tran- 
saction Bimny Hall, Red Hall, Westcrton Hall and Melborne Hall, with lands 
attaclu'd, passed into the hands of the Gre<'nwoods, who became known as the 
Greenwoods of Westerton — the jilace now known as West Ardsley, Eng., three 
and onc-lialf miles from Wakefield. The old Brown Hall has passed into 
decay and in recent years was used as a farm house. The head of this family 
was a Robert Greenwood. According to Duifdale'tt VixUation of York, Surtees 
Society publication, vol. 'M, in lO'S.i Rolicrt Greenwood, of West Ardsley, 
aged 52, on the 5th of April, entered his ])edigre<' showing him to be the third 
son to Robert Greenwood of the same place and grandson to James Green- 
wood by .M<'rcia, daughter of Mr. Broome, of Broome Hall, Yorkshire, and 
great grandson of Robert Greenwood, younger son to a Greenwood of Green- 
wood Lee, in Heptonslall, Yorkshire, by Alice Shaw, 'daughter of Paul Shaw, 
of Hangingroyd, in parish of Heptonstall. Description of Westerton arms: 
Sable, a chevron ermin«-s between 3 saltiers argent; and crest, a leopard sejant. 

In 15H7 a Robert Greenwood, of Inner Temple, gent, was deputy steward 
of Wakefield and Bradford manors.

ABMS OF THE GREEXWOODS OF SWARCLIFFE HALL 

In 1612 one John Greenwood described as a French merchant, or one who 
traded in French goods, purchased land in Wrenthorpe, Eng., and built a 
convenient brick house there with a wall of brick which enclosed 3 or 4 acres 
of his estate. The house became known as Red Hall. Wrenthorpe joined 
the township of Stanley, in the parish of Wakefield, and was about one mile 
north of that town. This branch of the Greenwood family was afterwards 
described as of Stapleton, 41/2 miles southeast of Pontefract. They claimed 
to bear arms same as the Westerton Greenwoods, with slight additions, and 
to be of that family. A few years after 1612 Mr. John Greenwood sold his 
property at Wrenthorpe and later years the Greenwoods lived at Swarcliffe 
Hall, 4 miles from Ripley. From Dugdale's Visitation of York it appears 
that the Greenwoods of Stapleton descended from James Greenwood, a 
younger brother of the Greenwoods of Greenwood Lee. Description of arms: 
Percher, sable and argent, a chevron ermines between 3 saltiers, couped, 
counterchanged. 

J. Bernard Burke, in General Armory, thus describes the above arm: Per 
chev. sable and argent, a chev. between 3 saltiers, couped, counterchanged; 
crest, tiger sejant.

ENGLISH HISTORY OF THE FAMILY AXD 
ORIGIN OF THE NAME 

For full seven centuries the surname Greenwood has been in 
use in England. The early English Greenwood records given in 
this volume and a long Greenwood pedigree now in the College of 
Arms, in London, Eng., show the progenitor of the Greenwood 
family in England to have been a Wyomarus de Greenwode. All 
family records of Anglo-Saxon extraction are believed to run 
back to this Wyomarus and the name Greenwood may be regarded 
as having had its beginning with him. This Wyomarus was ca- 
terer to Maud, the Empress, mother of King Henry II, who 
reigned in England A. D. 1154-1189. Wyomarus furnished the 
provisions for the household of the Empress Maud (known also 
as Matilda) and was of the titled gentry or nobility of his time. 
His coat of arms, which all Greenwoods are entitled to use, appears 
in this volume. 

In the township of Heptonstall, Eng. (which is in the West 
Riding of Yorkshire), lYo miles from Heptonstall village, on the 
old Roman highway, which leads from Heptonstall to Colne, there 
stands today a grand old hall or manor house, built of hand-hewed 
stone. This house, which is of such ample pretentions as to be 
known as a mansion, has for many centuries been standing here. 
It is set high up on the slope of what is known as Hardcastle 
Crags, or Hebden Valley. It overlooks this beautiful wooded 
valley and the scene presented is picturesque and enchanting. 
Many tourists are attracted to this spot by the grandeur of the 
scene. According to Thoresby's history of Leeds, published 1715, 
and from the records which appear in this volume, this mansion 
was built by Wyomarus or his immediate descendants and was 
their home place. The mansion with its buildings and land at- 
tached is known as Greenwood Lee. The mansion is 20 miles due 
west from Leeds and is 2 miles distant from the flourishing cotton 
manufacturing town of Hebden Bridge. 

Three-fourths of a mile from Greenwood Lee, on the same old 
Roman road leading from Heptonstall to Colne, is a second build- 
ing of stone and is known as High Greenwood. This structure 
was rebuilt 100 years ago and is now much changed from its for- 
mer appearance. In the neighborhood of Greenwood Lee and 
High Greenwood there are today such places as Gi'eenwood Lee 
Wood, High Greenwood Wood, Greenwood Lee Clough, Green 

15 



16 Greenwood Genealogies 

Hill and others, and the public records of Heptonstall show that 
these places were formerly included in what was once known as 
Greenwood. It was a little scttleniemt in itself. At one time this 
tract was a forest and this little settlement took its name from 
that forest. It was a large tract of green wood, of waving trees 
of oak, ash, maple and birch and many other varieties of wood. 
Probably the forest from which Greenwood took its name included 
the whole district from Stoneshay Gate to Widdop Gate and from 
the right side of the highway down to the river Hebden in the 
valley. The clearing in the forest was begun on the plateau 
skirting the valley. Here Greenwood Lee was built. It is pos- 
sible that the first houses were of wood and then after the forest 
was somewhat cleared Greenwood Lee was constructed ; then fol- 
lowed the construction of High Greenwood, the Clough house and 
others. This settlement of Greenwood was one of the oldest in 
Heptonstall and the Greenwoods of the settlement from ancient 
times down to the present day have ever been prominent in shap- 
ing the history of that old town. Turn over the pages of history 
of old Heptonstall, either of its remote past or immediate present, 
and the name Greenwood stands out prominent before you. 
Whichever way you turn in Heptonstall you are confronted by 
that name. The largest tax payers of Heptonstall have ever been 
Greenwoods, while the recoixls of the ancient parish church of the 
place and the old wills recorded at York show generous contribu- 
tions by Greenwoods to the church and large bequests to public 
charity. 

Previous to the year 1154 very few people in England had 
more than one name. Wyomarus was known only as Wyomarus. 
Surnames were introduced into England by the Normans after 
their invasion, in 1066, and many family names have originated 
in England since that time. After Wyomarus had established his 
home in the forest at Heptonstall, and a little settlement of his 
descendants was made there, he became known as Wyomarus de 
Greenwod (Wyomarus of Greenwood). The children and de- 
scendants of Wyomarus also took similar names and were known 
as Bartram de Greenwod (Bartram of Greenwood), Robert de 
Greenwod (Robert of Greenwood) and so on, and the old public 
records of Heptonstall show that it was nearly as late as the year 
1500 when the surname Greenwood became full}' established and 
the Latin word "de" was omitted. Greenwood is a place name. 
The family takes its name from a locality and that locality the 
green wood or forest at Heptonstall. It is evident that the man- 
sion. Greenwood Lee, took the first part of its name from the 
settlement Greenwood and the last part of its name (Lee) from 
the fact that its location was sheltered or that the buildings af- 
forded shelter to both men and beasts. Just the date Greenwood

English History of the Family and Origin of Name 17 

Lee was built there are no records that show. In 1S62 Green- 
wood Lee is mentioned in Heptonstall public records as being 
occupied by Thomas de Grenwod. In 1379 Hegh Grenewod 
(High Greenwood) is mentioned. There are no earlier public 
records referring to these buildings. 

Public records referring to the Greenwoods at Greenwood are 
of much interest. From the earliest public court records we find 
that on Nov. 22, 1274, one William Grenehod (Greenwood), was, 
for taking bushwood from Erringden forest, fined 6 pence, and 
according to the record a pledge was given by Luvecock, his 
brother, that it would not occur again. In the following year, or 
Friday, in whit-week, 1275, John del Greenwode (John of the 
Greenwood) was fined in the court of the Lord of the Manor 2 
shillings for the escape of 3 beasts to the meadows of Rawtonstall. 
These records show that at that time there was a settlement in the 
forest at Greenwood and that some of the land had been cleared, 
fenced and cultivated. The court of the manor was held at Wake- 
field by the Earl of Warren, or John de Warren, as his real name 
was. The Earl had been given by King Henry III (1250) free 
warren, or right to preserve the forests for game in Heptonstall, 
Wadsworth, Rawtonstall, Stansfield and Langfield and he pun- 
ished all intruders. He was Lord of the Manor of that district 
and once when his right was questioned he unsheated his sword and 
stretching out his arm declared that it was that weapon that gave 
him his right. 

In the year 1379 a poll tax was issued by King Richard II 
upon all persons in England over the age of 16 years in every 
parish or township. The tax list is of interest as showing who 
was living at Greenwood at the time. The list follows : 

Ricardus de Grenwod & vx. iiij d. (Richard of Greenwood 
and wife 4 pence.) 

Thomas de Grenewod & vx. iiij d. (Thomas of Greenwood and 
wife 4 pence.) 

Thomas de Grenewod & vx. iiij d. (Thomas of Greenwood and 
wife 4 pence.) 

Thomas de Grenewod iiij d. (Thomas of Greenwood, single.) 

From the above list it would appear that 4 Greenwoods con- 
stituted the inhabitants of Greenwood in 1379 — three of the 
Greenwoods were married and their wives living and one single 
person liable to a tax on account of age. One of these Green- 
Woods was named Richard and three were named Thomas. Besides 
these married Greenwoods there may have been children under the 
age of 16. Each was taxed 4 pence and evidently the tax had no 
bearing on the property each held. 

The records of the Court of the Manor show a Richard de 
Grenewod as a juryman in Oct., 1379, and in 1380 a Richard, son 



18 Greenwood Genealogies 

of Thomas dc Gronewod, whs a juryman at both April and October 
Turns. At an inquisition held at Halifax, l'Kj5^, a Thomas de 
Grenewod is named and described as the father of William and 
was probably living at Greenwood Lee. A Tiioinas de Grenewod 
was a juror of the Manor Court held 20th of October, 1413, and 
was then living; at Hiffh Greenwood. His name was second on the 



panel, a position he continued to occupy 1433 and 1434. Thomas 
dc Grenewod, the single man on the poll list, may have been the 
Thomas dc Grcnwod whose name ap])ears on a jury list 3d of Oct., 
1434, when he is last on the list of those empaneled at the local 
Turn. 

Public records show that soon after 1382 that the Monks of 
Lewes, in Yorkshire, had some control over the estates at Green- 
wood, and those adjoining, and drew revenue from them, the right 
being given by the Earl of Warren. 

In 1433 a John de Grenewod was living at Greenwood Lee and 
was the wealthiest landlord in Heptonstall, for he was paying a 
tax of 24s. 91/>d. annually in the way of rent, which was consid- 
ered large as money was then valued. 

On Dec. 16, 1439, the 18th year of the reign of King Henry 
VI, a rental was made in Heptonstall by order of the Proctor of 
the Priory of Lewes and from this rental it is learned that one 
Thomas Michell (Mitchell) was then living at "Heghegrenewodde" 
(High Greenwood) and paying rent to the Priory of Lewes of 6s. 
2d. per year. The Mitchells had evidently married into the Green- 
wood family. Formerly they occupied adjoining estates. They 
are of Norman descent. John de Grenewodde of Grenewoddlee 
(Greenwood Lee), the largest occupier in Heptonstall, paid an 
annual rent for Greenwood Lee of 6s. T^^^d. ; for lands and tene- 
ments called Gloghehous (Clough house), which is situated near 
Greenwood Lee on the far side of Greenwood T^ce Clough, to the 
left of the road, 15s.; for a close of land called "Gyllotraide," 
4d. ; land and tenement at "Robedshag" (Robert Shaw), near the 
slack Baptist chapel, 17d. ; for other lands and tenements in Hep- 
tonstall, not described by name, 17d. 

Richard de Grenewode, probably son of John, the same year 
was holding lands and tenements at Coldcn-Ing, for which he paid 
yearly rent 20d. He also held one parcel of land called "Walker- 
wyfynge," for which he paid 4l/.'d. 

William de Grenewodde held lands and tenements in Learing, 
in Heptonstall, for which he paid yearly rent 20d. He also rented 
"Esthap More" (East-up-Moor) for which he paid 20d., and also 
one acre of land taken from waste for which he paid 4d. per year. 
He is probiibly the same William Greenwood who was constable of 
Heptonstall in 1461. There was also a second Richard de Grene-

w'odde who held lands and tenements in Heptonstall township, for 
which he paid 3s. Ql/ijd. 

The rental list of 1439 shows that there were only 12 persons 
in the township of Heptonstall at that time paying rent. The 
combined rent of the 4 Greenwoods amounted to 34s. SV^d. The 
combined rent of the other 8 persons was 22s. 8%d. The largest 
tax payer was John de Grenewodde (John of Greenwood) ; second 
largest in Heptonstall, John Pygehils (Pickles), who paid for 
land and tenements in the town, 7s. 

The old English public records show that very early the Green- 
woods of Greenwood, in Heptonstall, began to scatter to the sur- 
rounding districts, marrying and intermarrying there, accumu- 
lating property and establishing homes. At one of the Turns of 
the Court of the Manor one Roger Greenwood of Sowerby (6 
miles from Greenwood), in 1326, was fined 3d. for his beasts 
unlawfully eating from the herbage of the forest. The record 
reads: "Rog'us de Grenwod, p. exh. best, iij d." In 1432 a lease, 
which was in Latin, was made for 40 years of a certain property 
called "Huldisworth Inge," in the township of Ovenden, near 
Halifax, at 20s. per year, to William Greenwood of Mixenden, by 
William Otes and others. In 1509 John Greenwood with Peter 
Crabtree, two clothiers (manufacturers of cloth), acquired from 
Richard Young and Margaret, his wife, what is know as Old Town 
farm, in Wadsworth, and the adjoining one known as Crabtree 
farm, in Wadsworth. In 1524 both these men paid a subsidy of 
20s. each to King Henry VIII and in later years they were both 
said to have been accused of using flocks in the manufacture of 
cloth. On his death John Greenwood was succeeded in business 
by his son William. 

In 1563 William Greenwood, a merchant or chapman, of 
Wadsworth, purchased from Wm. Brigg and Henry Brigg, his 
son and heir apparent, land called Potter Cliff, at Old Town, in 
Wadsworth, and about the same time he bought lands called 
Hirst from Henry and Charles Farrer, in Old Town. He was 
active in church matters for in the Heptonstall church registers, 
da/ted Apr. 21, 1572, he signs an entry to the effect that 120 organ 
pipes had been laid up in the church coffer. 

Greenwood Lee, from the time of its construction, passed down 
through an unbroken succession of generations of Greenwood 
owners until 1642, when it passed out of Greenwood possession. 
The last Greenwood occupant of the estate was Rev. Charles 
Greenwood. He was rector of Thornhill, and through the influ- 
ence that his own family had attained in the district as well as 
his connection with Greenwood Lee, he became Lord of the Manor 



20 Greenwood Genealogies 

of Heptonstall.* He was son of James Greenwood of Sowerby, a 
direct descendant of the Greenwoods of Greenwood Lee. His 
mother was Cecilia, daughter of Chas. RadclifF, of Todmorden. 
He left no living heirs. The will of the Rev. Charles Greenwood, 
proved July 1-i, 164'2, provided for the establishment of a free 
grammar school in Heptonstall, the buildings for which he had 
erected, t He also bequeathed £100 to be lent and put forth from 
year to year to ye poor people inhabiting within ye township of 
Heptonstall to succeeding ages for ever, the better to enable them 
to live by their labors in their honest vocations." He gave also 
money for the founding of two fellowships and two scholarships in 
University College, in Oxford, of which he had been fellow, and 
1500 pounds more toward building of a new quadrangle at the 
college, but the college was wronged of these bequests through the 
misconduct of the executors. 

In 1650 Greenwood Lee was twice sold. For a time it was in 
possession of the family of Sutcliff. In 1760 it was purchased by 
Abraham Gibson and at present it is occupied by Mrs. M. E. 
Gibson, widow, and her son Abraham, who are direct heirs of the 
Abraham first mentioned. 

The last Greenwood occupant of High Greenwood was one 
William Grenewod, whose will was proved at York Apr. 2, 1522, 
and his descendants. In 1559 High Greenwood was purchased by 
a Mr. Mitchell and it has remained in the Mitchell family ever 
since, having been passed down from one generation to another. 
Both Greenwood Lee and High Greenwood are today used as 
farmsteads. Both estates join and both extend from the moors at 
the summit of the hills to the valley below. 

*It appears from a manuscript in the British Museum, No. 797 of the 
Harleian mss., being a collection relating to Moreley Hundred, that John 
Warren, Earl of Surrey, claimed free warren in Heptonstall bv charter dated 
37th of King Henry III, A. D. 1253. The right of the manor passed into 
other hands for by an inquisition taken at Pontefract 25th Aug., 5th and 6th 
Philip and Mary, or A. D., 1558, that Sir Henry Savile, Knight, died siezed in 
fee tail of the manor of Heptonstall and from him it passed by degrees to Sir 
George Savile, of RuflFord. In the 5th King Charles, 1629, court was held at 
Heptonstall by Charles Greenwood, Clerk, Rector of Thornhill, Lord of the 
Manor of Heptonstall. Later the Right Honorable, the Earl of Scarborough, 
became Lord of the Manor of Heptonstall. 

One of the descendants of Charles Greenwood was cornet to Captain Gas- 
coigne and another, Ferdinand Greenwood, was lieutenant of horse in the 
service of King Charles the First, and was slain at Newark. 

fThe .school building provided for by the will of Rev. Charles Greenwood is 
yet in use and stands close by the old churchyard in Heptonstall. The school 
house was given as a free gift to the people of Heptonstall and land and prop- 
erty at Colden, in Heptonstall, was endowed for the perpetual care of the 
building and continual salary of the master of the school. The executors of 
tlie will consisted of John Greenwood, son of Robert Greenwood, John Green- 
wood of Elfaburgh Hall, William Mitchell, Thomas Greenwood of Learing 
and Richard Robertshaw and their heirs.

For many years tlic lioiiic place of Greenwoods deseended from \\'yomariis. 
Sir William I)ii}iclale"s N'isitation of Yorksliire gives the date IISO. when 
irKinliers of the family first settled here and a Charles Greenwood was li\in<j 
here as late as iSKI. A i)ietiire, or color ])rint, is yet haniiinji' on a \\all in 
the house hearinii' tiie inscription, "New Laithes, near Leeds — -('harles Green- 
wood, Es(j." I'',\idences exist of an iinderuroiind jiassage between this house 
and Kirkstall Ahhey, which is a short distance away. In excavating for rc])airs 
of the house building stones were found resembling those of the Abbey, built 
11.57. Some stone lions, evidently used as torch holders are on the premises 
and ha\e been placed around the foot of an oak tree, yet living, estimated to 
be TOO or SOO years t)ld. The house has been rebuilt and is changed from its 
original ai)])carancc. It is now occupied by Mr. J. U. Cross. 



English History of the Family and Origin of Name 21 

The building's now at Greenwood Lee consist of a large two 
story stone house, about 30 x 40 feet in size, with a long ell 60 x 30 
feet, also two stories. The house has five gables ; roofs covered 
with slate or thin stone and the house is especially noticeable for 
the large number of chimney tops and stone balls above the roof. 
Back of the main house is a second stone house 40 x 40 feet in size, 
two stories high, with a gable, slated or stone roof. There is a 
large stone barn on the premises unique for its architecture. It is 
only one story high and has a high pointed roof. It is 100 feet 
long and 60 feet wide. In a stone over the porch of the large house 
is cut the figures 1712. This porch was rebuilt that year by the 
SutclifFes. Otherwise the exteriors of all the buildings are as they 
were originally made except new glass windows and chimney pots. 
The estimated age of the present buildings at Greenwood Lee is 
500 years. Probably the present structures were built about the 
year 1400 and are an enlargement of the original or first buildings 
bearing the same name. High Greenwood when rebuilt is believed 
to have been standing since the year 1260. 

According to Tappan's history of England, as late as 1500 
the poor people in the country lived in cottages made of sticks 
and clay. There were no real chimneys, but only a hole for the 
smoke to go out. With Greenwood Lee, High Greenwood and the 
Clough house, large buildings of stone, the Greenwoods of Green- 
wood may be regarded as wealthy people for their time. 

Ralph Thoresby in his history of Leeds, Eng., and the West 
Outriding of Yorkshire, published 1715, and Whitaker in an edi- 
tion of Leeds, published 1816, both refer to a place known as New 
Laithes as famous for its long Greenwood occupancy. Thoresby 
says of New Laithes : "Here for many years resided the very 
ancient family of Greenwood descended from Wyomarus, who 
flourished ano. 1154, cater to Mawd the Empress." This New^ 
Laithes is the small village 5 miles north-west of Leeds, near the 
river Aire in the township of Newiay. New Laithes hall, or manor 
house, is yet standing, but no Greenwoods or their descendants are 
now living there. New Laithes hall came into possession of the 
Greenwoods as early as 1180 and was occupied by a Charles 
Greenwood as late as 1816. On Apr. 13, 1670, the estate was 
sold by a James Greenwood to Thomas Lord Viscount Savile, Earl 
of Sussex, but the estate was repurchased by a Joseph Greenwood, 
who died there in 1728. 

The Empress Maud, with whose household Wyomarus de 
Greenwod was connected was daughter of King Henry I, the third 
of the Norman kings to rule England. While still a child she 
married the Emperor of Germany ; that person dying she was mar- 
ried to Geoffrey, Count of Anjou, a Frenchman. Her mother was 



22 Greenwood Genealogies 

known as "Good Mjiud," daughter of the King of Scotland, By 
Geoffrey slie had a son who became King Henry II of Enghind. 

The early English records which appear in this volume have 
been passed down from one generation of Greenwoods to the next 
succeeding. In the year 1700 the records were in the keeping of 
James Greenwood of York; in 1815, they were in the hands of 
Joseph Greenwood Clayton, of New Laithes. (See Whitaker's 
History of Leeds.) The records are in two parts. The first part 
is upon parchment. The second part is in the autograph of Sir 
William Dugdale. By these records every descendant of Thomas 
Greenwood of Newton, Mass., can trace an unbroken line of an- 
cestry extending over a period of 700 years and through many 
generations. The line of descent in the English records from 
Thomas of Newton runs through John Greenwood, the priest, who 
was great grandparent of Thomas. 

The old church at Heptonstall (Thomas a' Becket), at which 
all Greenwoods of the ])arish worshipped, was built as early as 
1260, but is now in ruins. It was disused in 1854<. An effort is 
being made to perpetually preserve the now standing walls of the 
old stone structure and contributions for this purj^ose are solicited 
from all interested persons. The Vicar of the Heptonstall Parish 
Society, Heptonstall, Eng., receives subscriptions. The reg- 
isters of the old church run back only to 1593. The first 
Greenwood interment entries arc: March 20, 1593, twin children 
of William Grenwod, Wardsworth ; March, 1594, infant of Rich- 
ard Grenwod, of Ayringden ; Apr. 10, 1594, John, son of John 
Grenwod, of Stansfield; June 7, 1594, wife of Ric. Grenwod of 
Lang; June 11, 1594, infant of Simion Grenwod. 

No Greenwood marriages were recorded in 1593, but in 1594 
there are two: May 5, Matthew Grenwod and Jane Buckley and 
Richard Grenwood and Agnes Grenwood. In 1599 these baptisms 
appear, the first in the registers: July 15, Grace, dau. of John 
Greenwood of Wadd. ; 22d, Doriti, dau. of William Greenwood ; 
22d, Grace, dau. of Thomas Greenwood; Aug. 12, John, son of 
Simion Grenwod of Wad. 

A John Grenewode was clerk (in Holy orders) of the Hepton- 
stall Church in 1439, a Sir John Grcnwodde, curate, in 1531, and 
Thomas Greenwood, of Elpiiaborough Hall, officiated 1712-1744. 
He died 1748. A gallery at the west end of the north nave of this 
church was called High Greenwood loft, but when erected is not 
known. 

In the gallery of the tower of the new church of the Hepton- 
stall parish society at Heptonstall, is a marble tablet placed in 
memory of a John Greenwood, whose death occurred June 16, 
1823, aged 81, in recognition of his gift to charity. Names of

the wives by his three marriages and those of his children are also 
given. 

A John Greenwood, of Cottingly, as shown by a deed dated 
Feb. 20, 1598, left the sum of £40 to be lent from year to year 
for ever, to the poor of Heptonstall parish and £20 to the poor 
of Bradford-dale. Paul Greenwood of Old Town, Wadsworth, 
left 20 shilling a year for the poor people of Wadsworth and 20 
shillings a year for the minister at Heptonstall. 

John Greenwood, of the Learings, in Heptonstall, by his will 
dated Feb. 10, 1687, left an annuity of 20s. for the minister of 
Heptonstall Church and one of 20s. for the purpose of apprentic- 
ing a poor man's child. 

John Greenwood, of the Hippings, in Stansfield, by will dated 
Dec. 13, 1705, left 20s. yearly forever to the minister at Hepton- 
stall for the preaching of a sermon the first Wednesday in August 
yearly. 

Referring to the number of Greenwoods now living in Hepton- 
stall vicinity a public writer says : "In the Calderdale district, 
from Halifax to Todmorden, the number of Greenwoods is posi- 
tively amazing. One cannot take up a newspaper, or attend some 
public or social function, or visit the homes of the people, but the 
name of Greenwood stands out in numbers almost like the stars in 
the firmament ; and when one remembers that all these came from 
that original stock found at Greenwood, in Heptonstall, some cen- 
turies ago the thought cannot fail to be brimful of significance." 



ANCIENT GREENWOOD WILLS 

The very earliest Greenwood wills recorded at York, Eng., are 
the following, which are interesting as showing the great variety 
in the spelling of the name, and they also throw light upon the 
method of living in those early years. The number of persons 
bearing the Christian names of John, James, William and Thomas 
in the Greenwood family is remarkable. "Sir"* in these wills de- 
notes a clergyman. The recording of wills at York began in 1389.

*"Nambrey" was probably a book of names or family register of births, 
marriages and deaths. The spelUng of our forefathers was peculiar as com- 
pared with present day methods. "Nam," the first syllable of the word, may 
have come from the Anglo-Saxon word Noma, meaning name. "Brey" may 
have been taken from the Anglo-Saxon word Braco, signifying breath, vapor, 
fragrance or odor. With this attachment nambrey would appear to be a 
book of names with fragrant odors. 



EXECUTION OF JOHN GREENWOOD 

It will be of interest to every Greenwood to learn of the execu- 
tion in England of John Greenwood as a Puritan. He was a 
oraduate of Cambridge University in England, a clergyman in 
the Established Ciiurch, and the very first to separate from that 
cliurch and found the religious doctrine known as Puritanism or 
Congregationalism. He labored for simplicity of religious forms. 
Seven years he suffered the privations of close prison confinement 
and finally on the sixth of April, 1593, with his co-worker, Henry 
Barrowe, was taken from jail and hanged. That little band of 
Pilgrims that landed at Plymouth, Mass., in 1620, were his fol- 
lowers — they had worshipped at the church he founded — that band 
of Puritans that landed in America and founded Boston were be- 
lievers in the doctrine he was first to teach. The religious teach- 
ings of John Greenwood rapidly spread in England and in 1640 
occurred the civil war in which the Puritans under Oliver Cromwell 
as leader overthrew the English church and government and es- 
tablished in England the right of the Puritans to existence in 
that country. Persecution of the Puritans ceased for a time in 
England after Cromwell established himself as ruler of that coun- 
try. But that little band of Pilgrims at Plymouth, that band of 
Puritans at Boston, those followers who wended their way to Vir- 
ginia and Maryland — they brought to America the teachings of 
John Greenwood — the separation of church and state — and if 
America owes its greatness, its progress, and its achievements to 
one principle in government more than another it is that in 
America every American can kneel at the altar of his own faith, 
and worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience. 
The state in America is separated from the church. American 
government tolerates no single form of religious worship but shel- 
ters and protects alike all. John Greenwood taught that there 
could be but one head to the church and that head was not the 
Queen but Christ, and that there could be no law for the govern- 
ment of the church other than what the Scriptures contained. 
The execution of John Greenwood was in the reign of Queen Eliza- 
beth. 

John Greenwood, b. 15.56, entered Corpus Christie (or Benct) 
College, Cambridge, Mar. 18, 1577-8, a thcalogical student, I'e- 
ceivcd his Bachelor's degree 1580-1, was ordained deacon of the 
English Established Church by the Bishop of London and priest 

30 



Execution of John Greenwood 31 

by the Bishop of Lincoln, and for 5 years labored in the English 
Church, in Norfolk County. What led to a change in his religious 
belief is unknown but he was deprived of his benefice and began 
holding secret religious services at the home of Lord Robert Rich, 
of Rockford, Essex County, who was interested in his doctrine. 
Soon Lord Rich and a clergyman named Robert Wright, who was 
associated with John Greenwood, Avere arrested and thrown into 
prison. Mr. Greenwood then went to London where he formed a 
secret congregation at the house of one Henry Martin at St. 
Andrews. Here, early in October, 1586, he was arrested and 
lodged in the Clink prison while conducting a service. 

There had preceded Greenwood at Cambridge by a little more 
than 10 years a man of marked ability, by name of Henry Bar- 
rowe, third son of Thomas Barrowe, Esq., of Shipdam, Norfolk, 
by his second wife, Mary. He entered Cambridge Nov. 22, 1565, 
receiving his degree of Bachelor of Arts 1569-70, became a lawyer 
and practiced in Her Majesty's courts. He had become interested 
in the religious teachings of John Greenwood, and hearing of 
Greenwood's arrest he visited Greenwood on Sunday, Nov. 19, 
1586, between 9 and 10 o'clock, at the Clink. Here with no pre- 
tense of legal warrant Barrowe was arrested and locked in with 
Greenwood. A few days later both Greenwood and Barrowe were 
removed to the Fleet prison, where their quarters were close, and 
deprived of proper food, sufficient warmth and many necessities of 
life they were kept in confinement for 7 years. Many times during 
their imprisonment Greenwood and Barrowe were taken before the 
authorities of the English Church and questioned as to their re- 
ligious belief. Such an examination of Greenwood took place first 
at the palace (1586) before the Bishop of London. Asked by the 
Bishop if he believed in baptism. Greenwood replied that he did. 
Asked if he did not have a son unbaptized. Greenwood replied that 
his son Abel, II/2 years old, was unbaptized, but that he had been 
in prison and was unable to take his son to a reformed church 
where he could be baptized according to God's oi'dinance. Asked 
if he did not consider the English Church a church of God replied, 
"No." Mr. Greenwood told the Bishop that every congregation 
of Christ should be governed by a pastor, teacher and elder and 
by no other than that Christ appoints. He would excommunicate 
the Prince (Queen) as well as all members of the church who dis- 
obeyed the teachings of the word of God. He would make no ex- 
ception of the Prince. "The Scriptures set down sufficient laws 
for the worship of God and government of church which no man 
may add to or diminish. Her Majesty is not the supreme head 
of the church." 

Barrowe's first examination was on the afternoon of his arrest 
before the Archbishop, Archdeacon and Doctor Cosin. He pro- 



32 Greenwood Genealogies 

tested stoutly against his arrest without a warrant but to no effect. 
An effort was made to bind Barrowe by an oath to attend the 
Estabh'shcd Church, but he refused to take the oath. Eight days 
afterwards, 527 November, Barrowe was taken to Lambert before a 
synod of bishops and a dean, when a long sheet of accusations was 
read against him. He admitted that much of the matter was true 
but not all, and demanded that witnesses against him should be 
sworn, whereupon Whitgift (head of Corpus Christie College), 
losing his temper, burst out "Where is his keeper? You shall 
not prattle here. Away with him. Clap him up close. Let no 
man go to him. I will make him tell another tale yer I have done 
with him." 

On the 9th of March, 1589, Archdeacon Hutchinson visited 
Mr. Greenwood at the Fleet, saying he had come by virtue of a 
commission from Her Majesty to confer. Mr. Greenwood de- 
clined to have anything to say until he could have pen and ink 
and a fellow prisoner as a witness of the conversation, on the 
ground that he had been wickedly slandered and his cause falsely 
reported by the bishops and especially by one Dr. Some. The 
pen, ink and witness being granted, the archdeacon read some 
questions, mainly as to whether a church made up of members 
who were called together by the blowing of Her Majesty's 
trumpet, received into the church without conversion and repent- 
ance and consisting of all sorts of profane people could be consid- 
ered a true church of Christ. Very little progress was made at 
the interview and when the archdeacon went awa\^ he insisted on 
carrying with him all the notes that had been taken of what passed. 
He was prevailed upon to leave them in the hands of Mr. Calthop, 
the witness, but Mr. Greenwood says : "No sooner was I gone and 
locked up than the wardens were sent to the gentleman for the 
papers, who, declining to deliver them without our consent, the 
archbishop's servant came and took them away." 

Eight days after this. Mar. 17, 1589, the archdeacon came to 
see Mr. Greenwood again, bringing a witness of his own and hav- 
ing the doors locked upon them with no other person present 
except the two turnkeys of the jail, one of whom acted as scribe. 
On this occasion the argument was mainly upon the question 
whether John the Baptist received to his baptism those Phari- 
sees and Sadducees whom he called generations of vipers, the arch- 
deacon insisting that he did and Mr. Greenwood contending that 
while the vipers may have been present they took no part in the 
baptism, except as onlookers. 

In one interview the archdeacon had with Mr. Barrowe, the 
latter complained of his many years of illegal imprisonment and 
close confinement and was told by the archdeacon that "You 
should be most happy, for the solitary and contemplative I hold 



Execution of John Greenwood 33 

the most blessed life ; it's the life I would choose." Mr. Barrowe 
meekly replied : "Could you be content, Mr. Andrews, to be kept 
from exercise and air for so long a time, matters so necessray to 
a natural body?" "I say not," was the answer, "that I would 
want air." 

In an interview, Apr. 13, 1589, between Greenwood and Bar- 
rowe and clergymen of the English church, the prisoners state, 
"Things were disorderly handled and there were manifold cavils 
and shifts, shameless denials of manifest truths, and most un- 
christian contumelies, scoffs and reproaches against our persons." 
It ended with Greenwood and Barrowe being required to set down 
in brief the reasons why they persisted in refusing to return to 
the Church of England, which they did in these words : 

That the people of the church, as they stand, are not orderly 
to the faith, but stand mingled together in confusion. 

The ministry set over the people is not the true ministry of the 
gospel which Christ has appointed. 

The administrations and worship of the church are not ac- 
cording to the word of God. 

The ecclesiastical government, officers and canons are not ac- 
cording to the testament of Christ and are anti-christian and 
popish. 

That the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper as ad- 
ministered in the Established Church are not true sacraments. 

That infants ought not be baptized according to the form of 
baptism now in the Church of England. 

That it is not lawful to use the Lord's prayer publicly in the 
church for a set form of prayer. 

That all set and stinted prayers are merely babblings in the 
sight of the Lord and not to be used in public Christian assemblies. 

That the public prayers and worship of God in England as it 
is done in the Established Church is false, superstitious, popish 
and not to be used in any Christian congregation. 

While in prison both Greenwood and Barrowe wrote several 
books which were produced under difficulties that would have 
crushed the spirit of men of weaker fibre and inferior courage. 
Denied proper writing material they used such scraps of paper 
and bits of material as was secretly brought to them by friends 
from the outside. When one piece of paper was written over it 
was taken away and another piece as secretly furnished. These 
pieces of paper were taken to Holland where the writing was put 
into print and the books published. The Holland printers had to 
make what they could of the writing, but on the whole they did 
their work fairly well. These books treated of the religious belief 
of Greenwood and Barrowe and contained the interviews between 
them and the English Church officers, and although 300 years 



34) Greenwood Genealogies 

have passed since their publication, some of these books are yet 
found. 

In the autumn of 1592, for some reason not apparent, there 
was a rehixation of the rigor with which Greenwood was treated 
and he was allowed to leave the Fleet, either on bail or on his per- 
sonal promise to appear when required, and he went to live with 
Roger Rippon, in Southwalk. Barrowe remained in jail. Rip- 
pon's house was one of those at which the members of a secret 
church, formed by Mr. Greenwood four or five years before had 
held its meetings. Mr. Greenwood, now that he was out of prison, 
met with these people, and was appointed their doctor or teacher, 
but the bishops were alarmed by what they heard of the spread of 
Separatism and on Dec. 5, 1892, Mr. Greenwood was again ar- 
rested and committed again to the Fleet with Barrowe. This time 
he was arrested at the home of Edward Boyse on Ludgate Hill. 

On March 23, 1593, Greenwood and Barrowe were brought to 
trial at the Old Bailey in London. They were charged with pub- 
lishing and dispensing seditious books ; the proofs of the charge 
were found in the writings which they had published while in 
prison. Their sedition consisted in denying Her Majesty's eccle- 
siastical supremacy and attacking the existing ecclesiastical or- 
der. On the 3d, 11th and 20th of March Barrowe had been cited 
before Chief Justice Sir John Popham and Attorney General Lord 
Ellesmere and examined as to his opinions and his authorship of 
certain books. Barrowe avowed his convictions of the truth of his 
treatises and among other things expressed his opinion that the 
established government of the Church of England was unlawful 
and anti-christian. 

Greenwood had been examined on the 11th and 20th and con- 
fessed to his authorship of the books laid to his charge. Robert 
Bowie and Robert Stokes examined and testified on the 19th as to 
the way the books of Greenwood and Barrowe had been printed. 
Daniel Studley and James Forster testified to the printing also of 
the books. The latter, who described himself as a physician and 
master of arts, confessed having written some part of the Green- 
wood's and Barrowe's book entitled "A Brief Description of the 
False Church." 

The answers of Greenwood and Barrowe at the trial was a gen- 
eral denial of the charges brought against them but they were 
found guilty and sentenced to be hanged. 

The next morning, March 24, 1593, preparations were made 
for their execution but they were reprieved. Certain doctors and 
deans were then sent to the prisoners to confer with them but the 
prisoners claimed an open or public discussion, which was refused 
them. On the 31st of March the prisoners were conveyed to the 



1112993 

Execution of John Greenwood 35 

place of execution very early and secretly, where being tied by 
the neck to the tree, were permitted to speak a few words. They 
declared their innocence of all malice or ill intent and exhorted the 
people to obey and love the Queen and magistrates but to follow 
their leaders no further than they followed Scripture. They were 
then in the act of pra3^ing for the Queen when they were again re- 
prieved. This time as the result of a supplication to the Lord 
Treasurer that "in a land where no Papist was put to death for 
religion, theirs should not be the first blood shed who disagreed 
about faith with what was professed in the country," and desired 
conference to be convinced of their error. But only six dsLjs was 
gained by this clemency. 

The law that Greenwood and Barrowe were convicted under 
did not well apply in their case and the prelates having introduced 
a bill into Parliament that would apply were much alarmed when 
the bill came down to the Commons with its modifications and lest 
the prisoners should escape execution they were secretly and 
early on the morning of Apr. 6, 1593, taken to Tyburn and there 
hanged without ceremony. 

After the death of Greenwood and Barrowe, Parliament of 
England enacted a law "To Retain the Queen Majesty's subjects 
in Their Due Obedience" which read: "That if any person over 
16 years of age shall be absent from church for a month, or by 
writing, printing or speech shall attempt to persuade any of her 
Majesty's subjects to deny the Queen's ecclesiastical supremacy 
or shall attempt to persuade them from coming to church or shall 
be present at any unlawful meeting for religious worship they 
shall be committed to prison without bail until they conform and 
make submission. If for 3 months they refuse to conform they 
are to be banished from the realm. If they fail to leave the coun- 
try or return without license they are to be hanged as felons." 

Immediately after the passage of this act most of the Separ- 
atist prisoners were released from jail and several hundred of them 
streamed to Holland. Among the first that fled were the members 
of the secret church in London of which John Greenwood had been 
pastor. The}' crossed the sea in separate companies as they were 
able and within three or four years most of them had settled in 
Amsterdam. At one time 56 members of John Greenwood's secret 
church, while holding a service among the sand hills at Islington, 
were surprised and arrested. They were "committed without 
neither meat, drink, fry or lodgings, nor were their friends al- 
lowed to have access to them ; husbands and wives were purposely 
put into different prisons ; some had not a penny about them, so 
that not only they but their poor families were in wretched cause. 
All was contrary to law etiquette and conscience." 



36 Greenwood Genealogies 

On May 22, 1593, John Penry, a graduate of Cambridge Uni- 
versity and a member of John Greenwood's secret congregation, 
was hanged at St. Thomas Waterings in London. Gov. Bradford, 
in his "Dialogue," gives these additional names of Puritans who 
were publicly executed — William Dennis at Thetford, Norfolk, 
and John and Elias Coppin at Bury St. Edmunds. A great many 
Puritans who were committed to jail died in prison. Some were 
horse whipped, some branded with hot irons and some kept in 
chains. 

John Greenwood's definition of a church was : A company of 
faithful people separated from the unbelievers and heathen of the 
land, gathered in the name of Christ, whom they truly worship 
and readily obey as their only king, priest and prophet, joined 
together as members of one body, ordered and governed by such 
officers and laws as Christ in his will and testament hath hereunto 
obeyed. 

It is interesting to notice how John Greenwood and members 
of the church he founded struck upon some of the simple forms of 
religious observance that have remained characteristic of the 
Congregational Church to this day: One Daniel Buck, a writing 
master, deposed 9 March, 1593, that when he joined the com- 
pany "he made ye protestation that he would walk with the rest 
and yt so long as they did walk in the way of the Lorde and as 
farr as might be warranted by the word of God; that Greenwood 
took water and washed the faces of them that were baptised saying 
onely in ye administration of the sacrament 'I do baptise the in ye 
name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Ghost and with- 
out Godfather and Godmother'; and that at the Lord's supper 
five white loaves or more were sett upon ye table and that the 
pastor did break ye bread and then deliver it unto some of them 
and the deacons delivered to the rest, some of sd congregation 
sitting and some standing about the table and that the pastor 
delivered the cup unto one and he unto another till they had all 
drank using the words at ye delivery thereof according as is set 
down in the eleventh of Cor. ye 24 verse." 

Henry Barrowe was unmarried and a man of some property, 
which he willed to the Puritan Church at his death. His money 
paid for the printing of the religious works he and Mr. Green- 
wood wrote in prison. 

The execution of John Greenwood at Tyborn is recorded on 
the records of Corpus Christie College, Cambridge, Eng., and the 
offence is given as "writing against the Book of Common Prayer." 

After the imprisonment of John Greenwood, one Francis 
Johnson became pastor of the Greenwood church in London and 
when the members fled to Holland he became pastor of the Am- 
sterdam Puritan Church. 



Execution of John Greenwood 37 

The Rev. John Greenwood was son of James Greenwood by his 
second wife, Elizabeth, dau, of Edward Mawde. His grandfather, 
Thomas Greenwood, m. Margaret, dau. of Thomas Draper of 
Brodelsthom. Rev. John Greenwood m. and his only child was 
Abel, b. 1585, who was grandfather of Thomas Greenwood, who 
settled in Newton, Mass., 1665. 



GREENWOODS IN HOLLAND 

The famous little vessel, Mayflower, which landed its cargo of 
102 Pilgrims from Holland at Plymouth, Mass., in Dec, 1620, 
had no person b^' name of Greenwood on board, yet the State rec- 
ords in the archives of Leyden, Amsterdam and Rotterdam show 
the presence of Greenwoods among the Puritans who had separ- 
ated from the established church and fled from England to Hol- 
land to escape persecution. The exodus of these religious people 
from England begun immediately following the execution of Rev. 
John Greenwood at Tyburn, in 1593, and was continued to 1612 or 
later. From the Amsterdam records we learn of a William Green- 
wood, from Norwich, whose betrothal to Rachel Pettes is recorded 
on Nov. 24, 1617, Sam. Singleton and Robt. and Margaret Hop- 
kins being witnesses. No record of marriage is found. 

The Leyden records tell of a John Greenwood, from London, 
who matriculated in philosophy at Leyden University July 9, 
1625, aged 20. He was then living in the family of John Keble, 
from Canterbury, a wool comber. The records show his betrothal 
to Bridget Robinson May 10, 1629, with witnesses Sam. Lee, a 
hat maker, Thomas Nash, Eliz. Nash and Bridget Robinson, 
mother of the bride. The marriage occurred May 26, 1629. The 
marriage record says he "is a young man from the Brownists' 
camp." As the Puritans in Holland were called Brownists the 
locality where they lived may have been known as Brownists' 
Camp. This John Greenwood matriculated in theology at Leyden 
University May 22, 1634, aged 28, and was then yet living with 
John Keble. Bridget Robinson, whom John Greenwood m., was 
daughter and second child of Rev. John Robinson, })astor of the 
Puritan church in Leyden. This church, a prosperous body of 
English refugees, numbered 300 members. The name Brigdet was 
formerly common among English women. Even Oliver Cromwell, 
the Puritan leader of England, begun his letters to his wife with 
"Dear Biddie." The Leyden records show Bridget Robinson 
Greenwood to have m. 2d, William Lee, of Amsterdam, July 25, 
1637. The national council of American Congregational Churches 
have a tablet erected in Leyden to the memory of Rev. John Robin- 
son, the father of Bridget, and of the Pilgrims who came to Amer- 
ica in 1620, nearly all were from Rev. John Robinson's church. 
There were two Puritan churches in Amsterdam at same time. 

The Leyden records disclose also the marriage of Lacharian

Greenwood, Sept., 1647, to Jannetie Bruynal, a girl from Col- 
chester. A son was b. to this couple Apr. 3, 1657. Mr. Green- 
wood had some difficulty with the magistrates about this, a second 
marriage. 

Amsterdam records show the death of Anna Greenwood Jan., 
1636, as wife of Paul Diers de Ras. Her first husband was a Mr. 
Schas. 

Rotterdam records show the baptism of Thomas Groenewont 
(Greenwood) Dec. 31, 1647. His marriage is recorded as having 
occurred in 1676. 

From Rotterdam records it appears that Francis Greenwood, 
an Englishman and merchant, was m. 1671. His family consisted 
of a wife and two daughters.

built machines that rifled 3,000 smooth bore muskets in a day 
and cast 150 bronz field guns in a brief period. A turi'et monitor 
was also built there. The works were three times set on fire but 
not destroyed. 

One of the oldest manufacturing concerns now in England is 
that of William Greenwood, Jr., spinner and manufacturer at 
Oxenhope, under the present management of Jas. Frederick Green- 
wood and younger brother. The firm was established in 1761 by 
a Greenwood and has been in continuous operation by Greenwoods 
since that date. The line of goods made is fine cloth for gentle- 
men's suits. 

Daniel Greenwood, b. Sowerby, Eng., 1602, a man of great 
natural ability, was made fellow of Brasenose College, Oxford, and 
later, 1648, was appointed Principal of the College. In 1649 the 
degree of D. D. was conferred upon him and in 1651 he was made 
Vice Chancellor of the University. He took an active part in aid 
of the Parliamentary party in England and when the King was 
restored to the throne he was ejected from his connection with the 
college. He retired to private life at Studley, in Oxfordshire, and

1679, aged 53. A tablet to his memory is placed in his church. 



FIRST GREENWOODS IN AMERICA 

The first person by name of Greenwood to settle in America, 
so far as obtainable records show, was John Greenwood. English 
shipping lists show him to have been 16 years old; that he sailed 
from the port of London, Jan., 1634, on the ship Bonaventure, 
James Ricrofte, master. He settled in Virginia and has descend- 
ants who are mentioned in this work. 

The earliest Greenwood to settle in New England was Na- 
thaniel. He was from Norwich, Eng., and was a son of Miles 
Greenwood, a worsted weaver of Norwich, where he was baptized 
at the chapel of St. Michael-at-Pleas, Aug. 23, 1631. He came 
to this country as early as 1654, then 23 years of age, and on 
Jan. 24, 1655, at Weymouth, Mass., m. Mary, the daughter of 
Samuel Allen of Braintree, Mass. He engaged in ship building in 
Boston, Mass., and for 30 years successfully pursued that occu- 
pation, his death occurring, as appears from his tombstone now 
standing in Copp's Hill Cemetery, Boston, July 31, 1684, aged 
53. He left a widow and three children and considerable property. 

On Nov. 3, 1659, as appears from Dorchester, Mass., early 
records, one Alice Greenwood was m. to Robert Portis (probably 
Porteous), the ceremony being performed by Major Humphrey 
Atherton, a magistrate of Dorchester. Court records show this 
Robert to have been a witness to the will, signed Nov. 27, 1645, of 
one Lawrence Buckminister, a seaman, about sailing on a 
voyage. Robert was a Scotch tobacconist and first Treas- 
urer of the Scots' Charitable Society, Boston, Mass., organized 
6 Jan., 1657. He died a widower. Alice was probably 
a sister of Thomas Greenwood of Newton and daughter 
of Thomas Greenwood of Heptonstall, Eng. Whether she 
came to this country with friends or her father is a matter of con- 
jecture. If her father was ever in New England he left no record. 
A will of a Robert Porteous, dated Boston June 22, 1681, proved 
July 28, 1681 (Suffolk county, Mass., deeds), bequeaths his soul 
to God, his body to earth, his bones to rottenness and says that he 
shall be raised up again the last day and with these eyes behold his 
Saviour. He gives 10 pounds to Daniel Brewer and 5 pounds to 
Nathaniel Brewer, both of whom he calls brother and dear friend, 
and remainder of his estate he gives to Hannah, his daughter, and 
her husband, John Weld. Evidently he had but one child and as 
Alice was not mentioned she may have died before the will was 

43 



44 Greenwood Genealogies 

made. Hannah Porteous, Roxburj, Mass., records show, ni. Jan. 
22, 1678, John Weld, a glazier, of Roxbury, b. June 26, 1653, 
son of John and Margaret (Bowen) Weld and grandson of Cap- 
tain Josepli Weld, Avho came to America in 1635. Their children 
were: Hannah (Weld), b. Dec. 14, 1681, d. Oct. 6, 1683; John 
(Welb), b. Oct. 7, 1683; Joanna (Weld), b. Sept. 15, 1685, m. 
Samuel Lyon; Abigail (Weld), b. Aug. 19, 1687; Elizabeth 
(Weld), b. June 20, 1692; Sarah (Weld), b. Nov. 17, 1693, d. 
Jan. 16, 1708; Dorothy (Weld), b. June 21, 1695, m. William 
Dennison ; Samuel (Weld), b. May 18, 1697. 

About 1665 there appeared in Boston, Mass., one Thomas 
Greenwood, aged 22, and one Samuel Greenwood, aged 21. Sam- 
uel Greenwood was brother of Nathaniel, above mentioned, and son 
of Miles of Norwich, Eng. He remained in Boston and engaged 
in shipbuilding ; was a public spirited man, often holding office in 
the gift of the town's people, and at his death, Aug., 1711, left a 
large property in Boston which was divided among his widow and 
four children. 

Thomas Greenwood was by occupation a weaver. He remained 
in Boston a short time, then removed to Weymouth, Mass., and 
finally settled in Cambridge Village, now Newton, Mass., a short 
distance from Boston. He was son of Thomas Greenwood of Hep- 
tonstall, Eng., and possibly brother of Alice, above mentioned. 
He was baptized at Heptonstall (Eng.) Parish Church June 4, 
1643. His grandfather was Abel Greenwood, who was son of Rev. 
John Greenwood, the Puritan separatist who suffered death for 
his religious convictions at Tyburn, Eng., Apr. 6, 1593. Thomas 
Greenwood was an educated, intelligent man whose judgment was 
often sought by his neighbors and held town office. At his death, 
Sept. 1, 1693, he left an estate to a second wife and four children. 

Aside from the four Greenwoods last mentioned there are no 
records of other Greenwoods permanently settling in New England 
for nearly 100 years, or until 1760. The will of Nathaniel Green- 
wood (Suffolk County, Mass., records) mentions his cousin Benja- 
mine who is to have £5 when "his time is out," but no record being 
found of this Ben j amine he evidently returned to England after 
serving his apprenticeship. Of the Greenwoods now in America 
full 65 per cent are descendents of Thomas of Newton, 5 per cent 
descendants of Nathaniel and Samuel, and 30 per cent descendants 
of John of Virginia, or are later arrivals. 

Early English shipping lists contain these items: Robert 
Greenwood, age 18, sailed Nov. 20, 1635, port of London to Bar- 
badoes, ship. Expedition, Peter Blackler, master ; was examined 
as to his conformity to the discij)line of the church of England. 

Thomas Greenwood, aged 15, sailed Apr. 3. 1635. Gravesend 



First Greenwoods in America 45 

to St. Christopher, ship, Paul of London, J. Acklin, master. The 
minister of St. Katherins certified that "he had been examined as 
to his conformity to the discipline and orders of ye church of 
England and he did take ye oath of allegiance." 

John Greenwood, aged 26, sailed Jan. 6, 1634, to St. Christo- 
pher and the Barbadoes after taking ye oath of allegiance. Rec- 
ords of the parish of St. Michaels, Barbadoes, show the death of 
a John Greenwood in 1679. 



IN GENERAL 

BOOKS OF INTEREST 

Two books of exceedinfy interest are in the hands of Francis 
A. Thayer, 38 Park Row, New York City. Both are of old print 
and have come down from the sons of Thomas^ Greenwood to the 
jn-esent generation. One of these books is entitled, "Commen- 
taries on the Lamentations of Jeremiah," London, 1602, in which 
is written the autograph avowedly of "Rev. Thomas Greenwood, 
his book, 1714." and under "John Greenwood, 1720" and on 
another fly leaf — "Jno Greenwood's ex Doro patris" without date. 
The autographs are in a handsome hand. There is also written: 
"Noah Greenwood, 1786." 

Another book, "The Sermons of Christian Religion Delivered 
by Zacharias," has written on the fly leaf: "Abiah Carpenter, his 
book the 25th April 1659." "Jno Greenwood, his book, bought of 
Capt Butterworth, Jan'y 8, 1724." (Same fine hand as the other 
book.) "Oliver Greenwood, his book, January 1783." (In an un- 
cultured hand.) 

MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS 

The Rev. Thomas- Greenwood made this entry on one of his 
parish registers at Rehoboth, Mass. : 

"My hon"^ father Dyed (Friday) Sep"" 1st, 1693, In y^ even- 
ing." 

In March, 1770, there was a tide waiter named Thos. Green- 
wood, in Boston, who fired on the populace from a Custom House 
window at the time of the Bloody Massacre. He was accused of 
having killed Crispus Attucks, but the jury decided that soldiers 
of the 29th Regiment were the guilty parties. It is not learned 
that this Thomas was a New England resident. 

There are 33 towns in the United States and Canada bearing 
the name of Greenwood. They derived their names from the wood- 
land or forest that were prominent where the places are located. 

The word Boisvert, which means greenwood {bois — wood, vert 
— green) is in very common use in France as a surname and where- 
ever the French language is spoken. 

Among the Germans there is a word written Gruenwald, which 
is used as a surname and the word has the same significance as the 
family name Greenwood.

It is remarkable with the Greenwood family how the Christian 
names James, John, Thomas and William were maintained and 
have been passed down from one generation to another. The 
Greenwood wills recorded at York are alive with these names, 
while the church registers at Heptonstall and a[\ other public 
documents are so full that positive identification of individuals 
bearing these names is difficult. Even Thomas Greenwood, who 
settled at Newton, Mass., 1665, gave his own four sons these same 
names. In the parish church registers at Heptonstall, in the list 
of marriages, we find, July 15, 1641, a Thomas Greenwood married 
Sarah Crossle^" ; Oct. 15, 1641, a Thomas Greenwood married 
Ellen Wood and then Apr. 30, 1642, a Thomas Greenwood mar- 
ried Sarah SutclifFe. Here is a further illustration of the fre- 
quency- of that one name Thomas : In 1700, in the Wragby parish 
register, a Thomas Greenwood is mentioned as curate. In 1703 
a Thomas Greenwood was curate of LightclifFe ; 1706 a Thomas 
Greenwood was curate of Luddenden ; 1712 a Thomas Greenwood, 
A.B., was curate of Heptonstall and held that position until 
1744. In 1711 a Thomas Greenwood was pastor of the Baptist 
Church at Rodhill End, in Heptonstall. The latter was a man of 
some means and in 1737 gave the use of a building he had pur- 
chased to the church society. Among the trustees of this church 
was a John Greenwood of Hawksclough in Sowerby, yeoman, and 
William Greenwood, of Stone Slack, in Heptonstall. This Thomas 
Greenwood died 1742. 



THE GRAVE OF THOINIAS GREENWOOD 

Tlio licadstone indicatiiifr the grave of Thomas Greenwood of 
Newton, Mass., is 3'et, after a lapse of over 200 years, standing 
in Newton well preserved in the old cemetery on Center Street. 
The stone shows very little of the long time it has been in place. 
Nothing is now standing to mark the grave of Hannah, first wife 
of Thomas, who was probabh^ buried here, but the gravestone of 
her father, John Ward, and others of the Ward family are yet in 
place. Aside from the gravestone of Thomas Greenwood there 
are today only four other stones yet standing, which mark graves 
of the many Greenwoods who have been buried here. These stand- 
ing stones are in memory of Lieut. Josiah Greenwood, aet. 83, 
Thomas Greenwood, Esq., who d. Aug. 31, 1774, aet. 79, Mrs. 
Hannah Greenwood, consort of Thomas Greenwood, Esq., who d. 
Dec'r. 23d 1777, aet. 85, and Elizabeth Greenwood, dau'' of Mr. 
John & Mrs. Elizabeth Greenwood, who died Octo^"" ye 10th, 1755, 
Aged 8 mos & 10 days. 

The grave of Thomas Greenwood is near the back of the an- 
cient cemetery and is close beside the graves of the Wards. The 
standing stone, without mound, alone marks the grave.

THO]MAS GREENWOOD HOMESTEAD 

To any person a little acquainted with the topography of 
Newton, Mass., the map shown in the front of this volume will 
clearly show the location of the estate of Thomas Greenwood, 
which he occupied at time of his death and which he purchased of 
Isaac Parker. Names of his neighbors and location of their homes 
are also given. The map shows the town of Newton as it was in 
1700. At present, 1912, all parts of the house of Thomas Green- 
wood have disappeared and on the site of the Greenwood home- 
stead is now a very large and elegant establishment owned and 
occupied by George and Anjie Armstrong. This is now a very 
valuable part of Newton. Just when the original house disap- 
peared is not known for a certaint3\ It was probably standing in 
1841, when the property was bought for $5,000 by Ezra Hutchin- 
son from William Ladd.- On June 30, 1866, Ezra Hutchinson sold 
to Francis M. Johnson for $28,000 and he had evidently very 
much improved the property from what it was when Mr. Ladd 
owned it. F. M. Johnson built a large and expensive establish- 
ment. The house was partly destroyed by fire after his death and 
stood in that state till 1896 when bought by Nathaniel M. and 
Elbridge K. Jewell, who rebuilt it. No division of the original 
propertj' was made until Aug. 1, 1888, when Susan M. Johnson, 
widow of Francis, sold a part of the south side to Mrs. Hope V. 
Baker. The Newton boulevard syndicate pared off a part of the 
estate and it may have lost a little on the south side when Beacon 
street was laid out. The Boston (Sudbury River) aqueduct 
passes through the estate. The land originally extended from 
Beacon to Hammond streets. 

By Middlesex county probate records, docket 6909, old series, 
it appears: Thomas Greenwood, Sen., dec'd Sept. 1, 1693, widow 
Abigail and sons Thomas and John admrs. ; widow's dower, £88 
6s. 5d. of the personal property and to have £1 II s. 8d. annually 
from the income of the estate ; eldest son Thomas agreed that 2d 
son John should have the real estate, John to pay yearly allowance 
to the widow, to pay to Thomas £103 10s. 6d. and bring up Wil- 
liam and James till they are 14 years old, teach them to read and 
write and have the profits of their labors ; the widow to have 1/3 of 
the house and at her death % of the real estate to be divided 
among the 4 brothers ; John to pay James and William when of

sons, William and James, Nov. 20, 1694. 

Jolin Greenwood, after death of his father, Thomas, occupied 
the Greenwood estate till day of his death. His will made Aug. 
15, 1737, prohated Oct. 4, 'l737 (Midd'x probate docket 690)

apiece ; balance of estate to youngest son Josiah. As executor of 
his father's estate Josiah files an agreement to provide a horse for 
his mother to ride to church on. 

The third occupant of the Thomas Greenwood estate was 
Lieut. Josiah Greenwood, son of above John. His will made 25 
j\Iar., 1789, probated 13 June 1792 (Middlesex probate docket 
690) provides wife Prudence to abide by her marriage agreement; 
legacies to now surviving children, Neverson, Ebenezer, Ester 
Murdock, Sarah Greenwood and Alice Clark and granddaughter, 
Sarah Bartlett, consisting of books and house furnishings : daugh- 
ters Norcross and other children and grandchildren, not mentioned 
have had their shares ; to son Ebenezer all the real estate and 
personal not disposed of. 

The occupancy of the Thomas Greenwood estate by Ebenezer 
was only for a few months. A petition, Dec. 17, 1792, reads: 
Whereas Ebenezer Greenwood, yeoman, is a person who b}' idle- 
ness and intemperance wastes his estates so as to endanger his 
family being reduced to suffering, the court orders his removal 
from Ex'orship of his father's estate and puts him under guardian- 
ship of Dr. John King, Capt. Wm. Hammond, Gent, and Sam. 
Murdock. Neverson Greenwood, house wright, is summoned to 
administer the estate but declines and Wm. Hammond appointed ; 
inventory, I Apr. 1793, 30 acres, house and barn, £257, 7 acres

pay his debts. It is described: 37 acres of tillage, pasture and 
meadow, with house and barn pleasantly situated about one mile 
from Mr. Homer's meeting house. Sold at public vendue for £331

stable, selectman, of Newton, 1686-71 ; 1690 and 1693, the first 
town clerk, which office he held many years. He was one of the 
first signers of a petition to the general court. May 8, 1678, 
asking that their village be set off* from Cambridge and incorpo- 
rated as a new town. There were 64 freemen in the village and 52 
signed the petition which represented that they were crippled in 
person and estate by the late Phillip's war ; that they were at 
great expense in building and enlarging their meeting house and 
in building a new house for their minister; that having so many 
families now the law required them to support a school of their

(See Jackson Family, p. 57.) John Ward was a turner by trade, settled

conveyed to him and his wife, 45 acres of land, upon which he built his 
dwelling house and also a garrison that was used in Phillip's war and re- 
mained about 170 years, till 1821, having sheltered 7 generations. At the or- 
ganization of the town of Newton, Aug. 27, 1679, he was chosen one of the 
first selectmen and continued 8 years. He was the firsi rep. to the general 
court from Newton, and was returned 9 years. He had 13 children, Hannah, 
the eldest, m. Thomas Greenwood.' 

tJohn Spring of Newton, one of the administrators of the estate of Thomas

own ; that the townsmen had imposed a tax of "three county rates" 
without their knowledge or consent which they considered harsh 
proceedings. The petition though actively opposed, was granted 
and Cambridge Village became New Town, Dec. 8, 1688, which has 
since become Newton. 

On a tax assessment, Sept. 5, 1688, for "2 persons and estate 
6s. 8d." appears the name of Thomas Greenwood as tax Commis- 
sioner. His name as one of the Commissioners also appears on the 
tax lists for Stowe, Medford, Charlestown and Marlborough in 
the summer of 1688, the Commissioners serving under Governor 
Andros. 

Thomas Greenwood was born at Heptonstall, Eng. The rec- 
ord of his baptism appears on the register of the old parish 
church at Heptonstall June 4, 1643, son of Thomas Greenwood 
of Heptonstall. Thomas, the father, was baptized at Heptonstall, 
Feb. 26, 1610, son of Abel (born 1585,) who was son of Rev. John 
Greenwood, the Congregational martyr, executed at Tyburn, 
Eng., Apr. 6, 1593. 

Thomas Greenwood learned his trade as a weaver in his native 
town of Heptonstall, where the establishment of woolen manu- 
facture took place at a very early period. Members of the Sut- 
cliffe family were manufacturers of cloth in the vicinity of 
Heptonstall as early as 1311. The old Heptonstall Cloth 
Hall, which stood on the North side of the church yard at Hepton- 
stall, was long a market place for the sale of the product of the 
clothiers of the vicinity. 

The line of ancestry of Thomas Greenwood back to Wyomarus 
runs through John the priest given in the ancient English pedigree 
of this volume.

*Thomas Greenwood used three "e's" instead of two in spelling his 
last name. His father, Thomas, his grandfather, Abel, and his great grand- 
father, John, the priest, used the same method of spelling Greenwood, but 
the four sons of Thomas sjielled the name with two "e's" as the name is 
universally spelled today. Thomas Greenwood's method of spelling his name 
is but one of the numerous ways used by the earliest members of the Green- 
wood family before any set form was established and it has been an aid in 
tracing his ancestry. Previous to the year IGOO the Greenwood name was 
variously written: Grenwod, Grenwode, Grenewod and Grenewode. A John 
Grenewodde was living at Grenewodde Lee in 1439 and a John Grenwodde was 
a curate, in Heptonstall, 1520 to 1541. The name William Grenehude appears 
in a will proved at York, Jan. 30, 1430. The name Tliomas Grenewoodde 
appears in a will dated Nov. 11, 1543. A Luvecock Grenehod was before the 
court at Wakefield in the year 1274. A will of Joan Grenehude, widow, was 
proved at York, May 14, 1491; also, a will of John Grenehode, of Bramham, 
proved at York, Apr. 24, 1484.

for a short time in Sekonk, Mass. He took his wife there Tuesday 
following his marriage. The town agreed to give £95 current 
silver money of N. E., toward his settlement, and for his comfort- 
able subsistance, the contributions of strangers and £70 yearly, 
"to be paid to him one third in silver money and the other two- 
thirds in beef, pork, and all sorts of merchantable corn, rye,, 
butter, cheese, and merchantable boards at the current price set 
upon by the selectmen of the town," and the use of the pastors' 
and teachers' lands so long as he should continue in the work of 
the ministry in Rehoboth. He d. Sept. 8, 1720, at half past 2 
P. M., aged 50. 

Judge Samuel Sewell in his diary makes frequent mention of 
Rev. Thomas Greenwood, of Rehoboth, whom he visited on his 
official rounds. On Friday 30 Sept., 1709, he found Mr. Green- 
wood "dangerously ill of a malignant fever. At parting, Mrs. 
Greenwood, with tears, desired prayers for her husband and that 
word be left with Caleb Stedman at Roxbury, to acquaint her 
husband's bro., John, at Newtown."

founded a charity for poor widows, which is still administered for their bene-

in trade with Barbadoes, W. I. He appears to have been in New Ha\en, Ct., 
1637, and 1()14 returned to England, leaving his houses, goods, lots, estates 
and chattels in trust with his steward Henry Gibbons, w'ho kept possession in 
New Haven many yeurs. His three sons, James, Thomas and William, he left

record (Boston) says Jan. 1, 1767. Mr. Greenwood graduated 
from Harvard 1717, preached in Seekonk, Mass.; Mar. 10, 1720, 
he agreed with the selectman of Rehoboth, Mass., to teach school 
for 6 months for £12 for the first quarter, and the second quarter 
at the rate of £45 per year. Nov. 14, 1720, the town voted 
"Whereas the church of Christ in Rehoboth having made choice 
of Rev. Greenwood to preach the gospel amongst us for the 
present, the question being put whether the town would concur 
with the churche's choice, voted by the town to raise £70 per 
annum till we have a minister settled amongst us." Feb. 13, 1721, 
a vote by the town was taken for inviting Mr. Greenwood to be- 
come the minister of the west part of the town [his father's former 
parish]. 119 votes were cast in favor of the measure and only 
5 against. June 10, 1728 the Rev. John Greenwood and Rev. 
David Turner presented petitions to the town for an increase of 
their salaries, stating that their present salaries were inadequate 
to their comfortable support, the town in answer to their petitions 
voted to add to Mr. Greenwood's salary £20, and to that of Mr. 
Turner £30, making each of their respective salaries £100. 

Rehoboth, Dec. 2, 1757. 
To the first church of Christ in Rehoboth under my pastoral 
care. Brethren: — Whereas, by Divine Providence I am rendered 
unable thro bodily infirmity to carry on the work of the 
ministry any longer, after 30 odd years labor therein, and 
whereas, you presented to me the town's resolutions not to grant 
any support for another minister here except I release my salary, 
ye ministering lands and quit my pastoral office ; altho I think 
it not reasonable in the town to defer it, yet for peace's sake and 
that the gospel might not be hindered, I release my salary from 
the eleventh day of March next as aforesaid and by the advice of 
some ministers and brethren called to advise in the aff^air and at 
the desire of this church, I do likewise promise to ask and to 
receive of this chruch a dismissal from my pastorate over them as 
soon as a council of churches can conveniently sit for the orderly

doing of it, provided the church, particular persons, or the town, 
or any or all of them, will come under obligation for my support 
and maintenance during my natural life to give me £20 annually 
to be paid one half money and the other half in specie equal to 
money, the first year to be paid the 11th day of March, A. D., 
1759, and so from year to year by the 11th of March successively 
during my natural life as aforesaid, and that I and my estate be 
not taxed toward public charges. John Greenwood. 

These propositions the church and the town readily acceded to, 
and 40 individuals pledged themselves jointly to raise annually 
the support required, agreed to give yearly various sums each 
from €2 to 2 bushels of corn, or 2 bushels of rye. He was suc- 
ceeded by Rev. John Carncs, a native of Boston.*

21, 17 — , by John Greenwood, pastor of the church in Ri^ioboth. at the ordina-

and a deacon of the church in Newton, captain of militia, justice 
of the peace, selectman 4 years, representative to the general court 
13 years, town clerk 23 years. He is said to have been one of the 
proprietors of Paris, Maine, in 1735, and to have given his son 
Joseph land in Holden, !Mass. His gravestone bears this inscrip- 
tion "died Aug. 31, 1774, aged 79. A gentleman deservedly 
esteemed not only in private life, but for the faithful discharge 
of duty in the various public offices he sustained in church and 
state. The memory of the just is blessed."

'On the stone close beside Thomas Greenwood's grave, are these words 
still plain to be read 1898: "Mrs. Hannah, consort of Thomas Greenwood, 
Esq., who died Dec. 23, 1777, aged 85." Jackson's History of Newton says 
"Thomas Greenwood m. Lydia ." Thomas Greenwood in his will be- 
queaths "to Lydia, my beloved wife," and her petition to have the will proved 
is signed "Lydia (her -(- mark) Grenewood." It is possible she had a double 
name, tho that was not common at that time. We think most likely a mistake 
was made by the stone cutter or the one who ordered it. They named their 
first daughter Hannah and she named her first child Lydia. 

fThomas Greenwood's will is dated Aug. 10, 1774, in which he makes his 
son-in-law, Capt. John Woodward, the sole executor, gives his son Thomas 20 
shillings, and to the children of his son John Greenwood, "John my best gold 
ring and to Thomas Judson my next best gold ring and to Elizabeth another 
gold ring and also 20 shillings to be equally divided among them." All other 
property to his executor for the maintenance of his wife, Lydia, and at her 
death all remainder of property to be equally divided between his son Joseph 
and daughter Hannah. The sums given to Thomas and the children of John 
were considered their full and just share considering what they had previously 
received. The homestead consisted of 86 acres of land.

Daniel Greenwood was a farmer and evidently a man of influence. 
Pie and his wife were received into the church in Sutton 1730, by 
letter from Framingham. Dec. 20, 1731, the town of Sutton 
appointed a committee to "seat the meeting house" and they re- 
ported Daniel Greenwood has "the fore seat in ye side gallery." 
Sept. 8, 1742 he, with others living in the north part of Sutton, 
petitioned to be set off as an independent parish, but the town 
denied the petition, and 1743 they carried it to the general court 
where it was granted. This portion of the town was incorporated 
as Millbury, 1813. May 1, 1780, he was chosen one of a com- 
mittee to consider the matter of the national constitution and 
report "what they do, and do not approve of." Feb. 20, 1881, he 
was a delegate from Sutton to a county convention called to 
remonstrate with the general court against an act repealing a 
tender act. He was selectman 13 years and assessor 6 years. 
He died June 8, 1812.

206 WILLIAM GREENWOOD^ (William^, Thomas^) 
eldest son of Dea. William and Abigail (Woodward) Greenwood 

of Sherborn, Mass., b. there Nov. 4, 1721 ; m. , 1745, Abigail 

Death, b. Oct. 3, 1723, d. Oct. 1, 1814, daughter of John and 
Elizabeth (Barber) Death* of Framingham, Mass. Mr. Green- 
wood was a carpenter in Sherborn, moved to Dublin, N. H. as 
early as 1762, as he worked on the roads that year, and was the 
second English settler. Nine other persons from Sherborn 
located there soon after. May 4, 1762 he was chosen one of a 
committee to measure and establish the bounds of a ten acre lot 
for a meetinghouse, which he erected. He was also chosen to 
provide a preacher for two or three Sundays as soon as may be. 
The first meeting of the proprietors of Dublin held in that town, 
was at Wm. Greenwood's house, 1764 ; only two previous meetings 
had been held, and those were held in Dunstable, Mass. In 1765 
he located permanently with his family on lot 8, range 6. The 
town of Dublin was incorporated 1771, when it had 23 voters. 
At a meeting of the township proprietors Feb. 14, 1771, at the 
house of Eli Morse, William Greenwood was chosen moderator, 
and was one of a committee to sell the lands of delinquent pro- 
prietors to pay their taxes. Apr., 1773, the meetinghouse being 
completed, he was chosen one of a committee to plan out the pew 
ground. He and his brother Joseph were on the committee of 
inspection to see that the resolves of the Continental Congress 
be observed. He and his sons, Eli and Joshua, served in the Revo- 
lutionary War. The hardships of these pioneers are hard for 
people of this time to fully appreciate. It is said that on one 
occasion the snow being so deep that horse or ox teams could not 
move, Mrs. William Greenwood put on snow shoes, took a half 
bushel of corn on her shoulder and went by marked trees seven 
miles to Peterboro, the nearest mill, had the corn ground and 
returned home the same day. Mr. Greenwood was killed at the 
barn raising of Dea. Benjamin Leonard, June 28, 1782. It is 
probable he served in Revolutionary War under Capt. Joseph 
Parker, paid July 18, 1776, £10.25, and under Capt. Solomon 
Stone, Col. Enoch Hale, July 21, 1777-Sept. 26, 1777.

of hands — had no new one, and discharged no old one 
and at the end of one year they presented me with 
a silver service costing $104, of which I am very 
proud. I made paper for 35 years, made many im- 
provements ; was the first in the world to make paper 
of wood. I invented the only machine for making 
envelopes now in general use ; sold paper, cotton and 
silk machinery for 12 years ; real estate for 15 years ;

given 24 hours' notice to leave town because I was 
*a damned abolitionist.' I left in six weeks. I built 
four of the best paper mills in the country and was 
credited by good judges with making paper equal 
to the best English, French and German. My relig^ 
ion is humanity, — do good, live honestly, uprightly.

mend who has for several years had the entire active 
management of the business, his father remaining a 
silent partner. By force of circuaistances he became 
interested in the grocery business, in the Tucker- 
Rice block, of which he owned 1-3 interest. His eldest 
son, Hcrvey T., h;is for some years had the active 
managership of the store, his father's name being the 
onl}"^ visible sign of his connection with the business. 
He has filled many responsible positions in town af-

overseer of the poor, committee for making plans for 
the brick school, and various other stations of trust

troops for the War of the Rebellion. He joined the 
First Congregational church when a boy, but in young 
manhood drifted away from the tenets of his child- 
hood, but in 1859 he became a member of the Baptist 
church and has ever since been a consistent and in- 
fluential worker. Many of the poor of the town have 
cause to revere his memory for kindnesses heaped up, 
pressed down and running over. A man of great in- 
tegrity and energy, he was ever amenable to reason 
and ready to yield his own way to the wish of the ma- 
jority. For fifteen years he had been a sufferer from a 
chronic and hereditary form of rheumatism that led to 
ossification of the hip joints, so that he walked with 
extreme difficulty and with the aid of canes. He m.

Chadwick, 1). in London, Oct. 15, 1852. Mr. Whitney 
was a man of rare natural ability, indomitable energy, 
and ])erseverance. At the age of 17 he went to Cal- 
ifornia in a sailing vessel 'round Cape Horn, arrived 
in San Francisco with a working capital of ten cents, 
and made his way to Placer County gold mines. But 
gold digging did not suit his taste, and he engaged in 
shooting birds and larger game for the city market, 
thus accumulating his first capital. In about a year 
he returned to New England and commenced shipping 
goods to his brothers in San Francisco, with whom he 
was a partner in business, but soon transacted the 
business on his own account. During the Civil War 
he was a member of the independent corps of cadets of 
Massachusetts, guarding the distinguished Confed- 
erate officers, prisoners of war in Fort Warren in 
Boston harbor, 1862, and after, as captain of Co. F, 
second Massachusetts regiment. Having been quite 
successful, in 1865 he retired from commercial life and 
having from boyhood a strong passion for athletic 
and out-door life, he sought the mountains and parks 
of Colorado, making his way across the plains before 
any railroad existed and while the route was inces- 
santly threatened by hostile Indians. While in Colo- 
rado, he wrote the first book on that comparativel}' 
unknown territory. It attracted wide attention, and 
proved a forcible argument for Colorado's admission 
to statehood. He was appointed sole commissioner 
of Colorado to the Paris Exposition in 1867, and 
received the first gold medal, awarded unanimously by 
the international jury, who recommended him to the 
especial consideration of the Emperor, from whom 
he received the decoration of the Legion of Honor 
for his exhibit, which was considered the best in the 
American department. So great was his popularity 
in Colorado that the Democrats and Republicans 
unitedly nominated him for the U. S. Senate, and 
would have unanimously elected him had he not 
preemptorily declined ; whereupon the legislature 
passed complimentary resolutions, recognizing his em- 
inent services, had them handsomely engrossed upon 
parchment and forwarded them to him in the name 
of the Commonwealth. He made four round trips 
across the plains to the Rocky Mountains before the 
completion of the Union Pacific Railroad in 1868,

two of which were in 1865, while the Indian wars were 
raging. He purchased land largely, improved it by 
irrigation, and in 1875 had 11,000 acres in grain. He 
was the first to raise and cure raisins on a 
large scale, having a vineyard of 250 acres, and in 
1877, sliipped the first carload that ever went East 
from the state of California. He, with others, owned 
nearly a million acres of grazing land in New Mexico, 
300,000 acres of which were fenced and stocked with 
about 20,000 cattle. Almost unaided, he built and 
equipped the Silver City and Deming Railroad of 50 
miles, in New Mexico, was president of it two years, 
and later sold it to the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe 
Co. He had a splendid residence on his Spring Valley 
ranch of 25,000 acres in Rocklin, Cal., surrounded 
by extensive grounds, beautifully laid out with many 
miles of picturesque drives. He also had a summer 
resort in the woods of Maine, "The Pines," at Range- 
ley Lakes, where he spent the summers. He was 
public spirited, building railroads and reservoirs for 
irrigation and was forward in every enterprise for the 
public good. He was president of the Placer County 
Board of Trade, and officer or director in many indus- 
trial enterprises ; d. at Monterey, Cal., Jan. 17,

his early life on his father's farm in Gardner, and at the age of 26 
settled in East Templeton, Mass., purchasing, Mar. 16, 1812, the 
Tucker tavern property, situated on the fifth Massachusetts turn- 
pike, just completed as a through stage route from Boston to 
Albany, N. Y. There were 4 taverns on this turnpike within a 
distance of 2 miles. He entertained the traveling public, cultivated 
the extensive lands belonging to the property and manufactured 
tubs, pails and barrels, which were all wrought out by hand. Aside 
from 3 saw and gristmills, this was the only manufacturing busi- 
ness in town. In 1820 he disposed of the tavern property to his 
brother-in-law, William Whitney, and erected a cooper shop 
60 X 30 feet, 1^ story, at the corner of Main and Mechanic 
Streets, for the manufacture of tubs and pails. He employed 
regular hands and the shop was a place of much activity and 
hard labor, as the only tools employed were the axe, saw and 
shave. Much of the product was sent to Boston by teams, a dis- 
tance of 60 miles. This work he continued till his death by rup- 
ture, Oct. 24, 1846. Not long after this, water power and machin- 
ery were introduced by Thomas Temple Greenwood [No. 3345].

his life covered but a brief period and was constantly 
restrained from following out any special line, his me- 
chanical ingenuity was striking. In the space of two 
years, while employed in a mechanical pursuit, he in- 
vented and put into use a machine for boring wooden 
chair seats for caning, wonderful for the rapidity with 
which it did the work, and one which in all its main 
features is used today by all chair manufacturers. He 
improved a machine for squaring and cutting to a given 
length the stock used in wooden chair-seats, by means 
of double circular saws. Though he believed no machine 
could be made that would run prepetually by its own 
force, he gave his mind to the study and did construct 
one that would run several hours, which was regarded 
as a great wonder. It was generally believed that had he 
been permitted to live to the allotted age of man, and 
had better health, he would have taken rank among the 
distinguished inventors of the country. He m. July 28,

Mr. Greenwood was a farmer in Dorchester, that portion in-

money in his pocket. He obtained employment in the ice business ; 
later in Faneuil Hall market, where he earned sufficient money to 
purchase one of the stalls (No. 99-101). At the market, with his 
brother Bela, he remained until he bought the farm now bearing 
his name in Hyde Park, Mass. By public acknowledgment of the 
faith, he joined the Baptist Church at Hyde Park in the fall of 
1863, and on July 17, 1864, with his wife, was baptized in the

on the same spot. The Greenwood district has seen the largest school at- 
tendance of any in town, and is rapidly increasing. Greenwood Avenue and 
Greenwood Square were also named in honor of Elihu Greenwood.

S782 Charles Freeman (Brown) b. Nov. 12, 1833, converted 
at 17 he united with the First Baptist church in Cam- 
bridge, and ever after maintained a consistent Chris- 
tian character. He was a druggist and his profes- 
sional services were sought for the medical dispensary 
on board the U. S. schooner, John Griffin, of the mor- 
tar fleet, under Com. Farragut. He distinguished 
himself by devotion to his particular line of service ; 
was incessant in his labors for the sick and dj'ing, and 
contended heroically with the diseases peculiar to a 
southern climate. In the absence of a chaplain, he 
served as such, and showed in the midst of severe temp- 
tations and trials the mighty power of grace, and how 
that can fit the most unassuming to perform even 
bolder and nobler deeds than facing the cannon's 
mouth. A naval comrade says of him: "He was a 
living epistle, known and read of all men, nor do I ever 
remember meeting with any person so thoroughly con- 
scientious and unswerving in religious principle. We 
reached the Bahama Banks in company with another 
vessel on Sunday morning and came to anchor. The 
captains of each agreed to spend the day fishing at 
the Orange Keys and invited Charles to accompany 
them. His reply was, 'I should be happy to go with 
you on any other day, but dare not go on the Lord's 
day.' They arrived at the navy-yard at Pensacola on 
Sunday morning, and again the captain invited him to 
go with them, but he replied, 'It is against my princi- 
ples to go visiting on Sunday.' On our arrival at Key 
West he asked the captain for the privilege of holding 
meetings on board, which, after a week or two, was 
granted, and it was a thrilling sight to see him stand- 
ing on the quarter deck, surrounded by the ship's 
company, lifting up his voice to his Heavenly Father 
for a blessing to rest upon the officers and men of our 
vessel. I have seen the captain on his knees after leav- 
ing our meeting. I shall never forget when at the 
close of the day we held our evening devotions, how 
he would lift up his heart to God in behalf of those 
around him who had never experienced a Savior's 
pardoning love. Nor can I cease to remember how, 
when a number of the sailors were down with inter- 
mittant fever he would try to get them to read some 
tract or religious book ; and especially in the case of 
a young man who afterward died. He was to be found 



Fifth Genekation 285 

daily at his bedside reading and praying with him, and 
endeavoring to impress upon him the necessity of a 
change of heart." As his revered father and loved 
brothers and sisters were longing and expecting to 
see him back again, to recruit his exhausted energies 
by breathing his native New England air, and enjoy 
the love-tokens of a large circle of friends, the sad 
tidings came that he died in Pensacola hospital of 
yellow fever, Sept. 26, 1862. His name is on the 
soldiers' monument in Cambridge.

man was alone in business. In 1885 Mr. Chapman's 
store, including its entire contents, was destroyed by 
fire with a loss amounting to nearly $700, 000, the

property being only partially insured. Mr. ('iiH})nmn 
received letters and telegrams of sympath}' from the 
trade far and near for his great loss and being 
strongly urged by the ])eo])le of Milwaukee to rebuild 
he erected a new building covering a space on the 
ground floor of over 17,000 square feet and so artistic 
in style and so well arranged for business that the 
building is regarded as one of the most perfect retail 
dry goods stores in the country and a store the city 
of Milwaukee is justl}' proud of. At time of his 
death Mr. Chapman's employes with their families 
numbered more than the combined population of the 
town of Gilead, Me., his native place. In 1888 Mr. 
Chapman was offered the nomination of Governor of 
Wisconsin, but declined it.

his zeal to subdue the forest, like most of his contempararies, 
he cut down too many trees. He was one of the farmers who left

battle of Bennington and the capture of Burgoyne, in the defense 
of his country in the War of the Revolution [(official record, pri- 
vate, Capt. John Boynton, Col. Nathan Sparhawk, marched to

him." He d. Mar. 8, 1827.
