PREFACE 

A In presenting this Second Part of the Haverhill Emer- 

T' sons, the compiler would ask all readers to note a few 
Ci points: 

<;n Firstly, that he has made use of all available means of 

<;;n| gathering and arranging the materials here presented, and 

^?ijNy assures the family that the book gives no fanciful dreams 

and ambitious theories, but information sought out with 

rigid care and presented as simply as possible. He has 

avoided the long-drawn descriptions and dissertations 

with which some authors have attempted to impress their 

readers, and preferred to leave some things unsaid, or 

>. iS' very briefly told, which are capable of many words. He 

^ has framed the work for generations to come as much as 

for the first readers. 

Secondly, he has found many obstacles in the way of 
making a perfect genealogy. Some of these are the in- 
difference of hundreds of Emersons to whom circulars and 
letters have been sent, who have delayed for months or 
altogether failed to reply; the hasty statements of some 
whose dates and names have differed from the records of 
towns and cities and have differed among members of 
the same inmiediate family; and, hardest task of all, the 
difficulty of distinguishing between the two great family 
groups, the Haverhill and the Ipswich Emersons. 

In view of these facts, he begs the consideration and 
forbearance of those who find what they count errors, and 
would ask them to hold their indictments patiently till 
they have gotten full evidence on the points in question. 
Even printed records of towns and cities may contain 
incorrect entries, and positive statements of fathers and 
3

mothers, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters and 
children may not be the final and reliable records, but 
faulty memories and hasty tongues may be involved. 

And, in fine, please accept this effort of an honest lover 
of ''folks," painfully aware of his own limitations, who 
has done all his work in compiling and editing with the 
same warm, personal feeling and desire to set forth the 
truth as if he were in fact a member of this noble family, 
which he has come to regard as one of the finest of the 
stocks which were transplanted from Old England to New 
England two centuries and three-quarters ago. 

He would hereby record his indebtedness to the ex- 
cellent genealogy of the Dover, N. H., group of the Emer- 
son family presented in "The History of Durham, N. H.," 
by Dr. Everett S. Stackpole; to the sketch of a portion of 
the descendants of Samuel Emerson, of Chester, Mass., 
in Dr. Linn Emerson's neat volume; and to the contribu- 
tions of family records by several very helpful correspond- 
ents, of the Emerson and other names. The family at 
large will also keep in grateful remembrance the trio of 
liberal men who furnished the means for the compiler 
to obtain the English treasures which are shown in the 
coat of arms, the views of the ancient church of Cadney, 
and the records of the family there: Ellius Albert Emer- 
son, of Haverhill; Guy Le Verne Emerson, of Chicago, 
111. and Dr. Justin Edwards Emerson, of Detroit, Mich., 
are the three who made that research possible. 

Please take particular notice of The Additions and 
Corrections to Part First which are given on pages 
17 to 24 of this volume. 



THE HAVERHILL EMERSONS 



THE ENGLISH ANCESTRY OF THE 
HAVERHILL EMERSONS 

In the introduction to Part First of this work the writer 
discussed the matter of EngHsh Emersons, referring to 
the valuable book on that subject by Dr. Peter Henry 
Emerson and the " Genealogy of the Ipswich, Mass., 
Emerson Family " by Prof. Benjamin Kendall Emerson 
and Capt. George Augustus Gordon. The records 
quoted by these authors showed the Ipswich pioneer, 
Thomas Emerson the baker, to have been son of a currier 
at Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, named Robert 
Emberson or Emerson, and gave the baptisms of so 
many of the children of Thomas who came hither with 
him as to leave no doubt that the pedigree was well 
established. But it became necessary for the present 
writer to point out a serious and gratuitous blunder 
made in the American genealogy, namely, the statement 
that Robert Emerson of Haverhill was a son of the 
Ipswich pioneer! The testimony of Michael Emerson 
of Haverhill, that he and Robert were brothers, and 
certain elements in the history of Robert were adduced 
by the writer to show the entire separateness of the 
Ipswich and Haverhill Emerson families in their Enghsh 
ancestry. 

The writer then brought forward an abstract of a 
will made by Alexander Emerson of Sereby, in the 
county of Lincoln, England, yeoman, and gave the 
suggestion that that region might prove to be the cradle 
of the Haverhill family. 

Later critical inspection of the parish and probate 
records quoted by Dr. Peter Henry Emerson revealed 
several entries which appeared to point definitely to the 
Haverhill men and show their ancestry. A few of the 
subscribers to Part First were informed of this, and of

the fact that Mr. Pope was about to vi^it England (his 
tenth season in Great Britain on genealogical research), 
and could make a side trip to Lincolnshire and obtain 
full details on this matter. 

A fund was contributed for this purpose by the follow- 
ing, who had been subscribers to Part First : Ellius Albert 
Emerson, A.B., of Haverhill, Mass.; Justin Edwards 
Emerson, M.D., of Detroit, Mich., and Guy Le Verne 
Emerson, Esquire, of Chicago, 111. ; and the writer made the 
visit in September, 1913. Herewith he presents his report. 

Beginning at the point where the most essential evidence 
of connection appears, we will first read the will of the 
father of the Haverhill settlers, copied from the original 
in the probate office in the city of Lincoln, England, by 
the writer: 

In the name of God amen, I Thomas Emerson of Howsham 
in the parish of Cadney in the countie of Lincoln yeoman, 
Aged and weake in body. But of sound and pfect memorie 
praised be God for it doe make and constitute this my last 
Will and testament in manner and forme folowing, Viz: Imp': 
I bequeath my soule into the hands of Almighty God my 
heavenly maker and Redeemer, And my body decently to be 
buried in the parish church yard of Cadney nere unto the place 
where my wife was buried, And of my worldly goods I thus 
dispose, Imprimis I give to Edward Emerson my sonne twentie 
pounds to be payd to him within three monthes after my 
decease, Item I give to my sonne Thomas Emerson twentie 
pounds to be likewise payed within three monthes after my 
decease, Item I give to my sonne Michael Emerson five pounds 
to be payd within five weeks after the demanding of the same. 
Item I give to my daughter Elizabeth Lilforth and her children 
four pounds to be hkewise payd within five weeks after the 
demanding of the same, Item I give to Robert Emerson my 
sonne ffive pounds to be likewise payd within five weeks after 
the demanding of the same. Item I give to Isabell Grantham 
my daughter twentie shillings. Item I give to Isabell Grantham 
my daughter three shillings foure pence in the month to be 
payd out of my lands and tenements in Howsham for and 
dureing her naturall life, to begin at my decease, Item I give 
to Anne Wright my grandchild twentie shillings. All these 
several sumes I will that they be payd as formerly mentioned 
And also that they receive them with their own hands in How- 
sham and there give a discharge to my executor. Excepting

That then the rest of my children shall devide that legacie

Surrogato 

Here is the testament of a proprietor of ''lands and 
tenements," some of which he occupied, some rented to 
men of smaller means. He was one of the wardens of 
Cadney parish, and his well-written signatm-e on the 
parish register for a number of years shows that it was 
only through sickness or the infirmities of age that he 
was obliged to make his mark to his will. 

He was at that time a widower, and affectionately 
desired to have his body placed in the ground close to 
the ancient parish church near to the spot that contained 
the ashes of his spouse. He had regard for every one of 
his children and gave each some token of that love. 
But he made two distinct classes. One group was ''here 
in England"; the others were so far away that an "aquit- 
ance, " that is, a written receipt, would satisfy the executor 
of his estate. The daughter had children; he gave no 
hint of the sons having any. He did not say where the 
three who might send receipts lived, but the words 
"my children here in England " prove conclusively that 
Michael, EHzabeth and Robert were in some other 
country. The surname of the daughter abroad is signifi- 
cant. The will spells it in two ways, and the records of 
Haverhill give Lilford, Linford, Lilfurth and Lilfurd; 



8 EMERSON GENEALOGY 

and the fact that she had children at the date of the will, 
1656, is shown by records here. An early clerk of Haver- 
hill, recording the births of the children of Thomas and 
EUzabeth Lilford, gives her maiden name as ''Emerson." 
They had Elizabeth Lilford, born April 12, 1648; Mary 
Lilford, born February 7, 1649; Martha Lilford, born 
March 12, 1654, and perhaps others. Michael Emerson 
was certainly here in the year 1651, but not married till 
nearly a year after his father's will was signed, and Robert 
did not marry till a year later. This accumulation of 
evidence leaves no possible question of the connection. 

Turning next to the parish registers of Baptisms, Mar- 
riages and Burials in Cadney, we find the following: 

Thomas Emerson, yeoman, and Margaret Free, spinster, 
were married August 10, 1612. 

The following children of this couple are recorded: 
Alexander Emerson, baptized Oct. 7, and buried Oct. 19, 1613. 
Anna Emerson, baptized Oct. 2, 1614. 
Elizabeth Emerson*, baptized Apr. 22, 1616. 

*Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas and Margaret (Froe) Emerson, baptized 
at Cadney, Lincolnshire, England, April 22, 1616; came to New England 
at a time unknown to us; married (date not known) probably at Rowley, 
Mass., Thomas Lilford (Lilforth, Lilfurd, Linford, etc.) who was born 
(according to his deposition in 1662), about the year 1615, and came to 
Rowley before 1643, when he was made a proprietor. He afterward 
removed to Haverhill. He was a farmer. He died November 15, 1672; 
his widow administered on his estate. As such she sold to Robert Emerson 
"in consideration of full satisfaction and pay received by my said husband 
& for confirmacon of a bargain made & contracted by my said husband & 
Robert Emerson seUing to y* s^ Robert one commonage & a parcel of 
meadow," conveying the same to Robert October 29, 1673, in the presence 
of Michael Emerson. (Norf. Co. De. 3:271.) She also gave to Nicholas 
Browne, April 24, 1687, one-half of the second division of upland in Haver- 
hill, "in fulfilment of a promise made long before by her husband in antici- 
pation of the marriage of said Browne with their daughter Mary Lilfurth." 
(Es. Co. De. 9:90.) Nicholas and Mary Browne sold this tract May 9, 
1687. They had children Ebenezer, Abia, Mary, Ruth and Martha 
Browne; Abia married Richard Marshall of Ipswich, who joined with her 
in a deed of her share of Haverhill real estate to her brother Ebenezer, 
March 7, 1723-4; Mary, Ruth and Martha conveyed to Ebenezer their 
shares "in the estate of their grandfather Thomas Lilfurth, late of Haver- 
hill," May 2 and 8, 1726. Ehzabeth (Emerson) Lilford died February 
20, 1692-3, and her estate was administered on and the estate of her hus- 
band completely settled by her eldest daughter Elizabeth who had married 

Brewer. She charged for the keeping of her mother 14 years, 

sixty-five pounds; the balance of the property, eighty-eight pounds, was 
divided between Mrs. Brewer and "the other daughter Mary Lilford," 
May 4, 1696.

Thomas Emerson of Howsham was buried December 25, 1657. 

The record of the death or burial of Margaret, wife of 
Thomas Emerson, is not found in the register. Possibly it 
was recorded on one of the pages of the ancient parchment 
book which are now so worn and shiny as to be illegible. 

The ascending ancestral Une from Thomas Emerson, 
father of Michael and Robert, goes to the person whose 
will (abstract) was given in Part First of this work, which 
we now repeat: 

''Alexander Emerson of Sereby in the county of 
Lincoln, yeoman," made his will April 10, 1604, and it 
was proved February 10, 1605-6. He desired to be 
buried in the church of Serebye. To his wife he gave 
all his lands and tenements in Serebye during her life, 
if she did not marry after his decease. After her death 
or marriage he willed those lands and tenements to his 
son Michael Emerson, and the heirs male begotten of 
his body for ever, with remainder to son Robert and his 
heirs, then to son Thomas, etc., then to son John, etc., 
and lastly to the right heirs of son Michael for ever. 
To his son Thomas Emerson all his lands and tenements, 
etc., in Howsham and Cadney, with remainder to John, 
then to Robert, then to Michael and lastly to the right 
heirs of son Thomas. To wife all houses, lands and tene- 
ments in Glamford Brigges for life and then to son Robert. 
To Margery and Margaret Emerson, daughters of de- 
ceased son George, twenty shilUngs apiece. All his 
goods to be divided equally between these five, viz., 
"my wife and John, Michaell, Robert and Thomas 
Emerson, my sons. Son Michaell full and sole executor." 
Alexander Emerson was buried in Sereby, October 8, 1605. 

The names in this will are so closely like those in the 



10 EMERSON GENEALOGY 

will of Thomas of Howsham, and the phrases employed 
with reference to the ''lands and tenements in Howsham" 
which Alexander bequeathed to Thomas, and the income 
from which Thomas bequeathed to his daughter Isabell; 
the same word ''yeoman" used to describe the men; and 
the fact that the Howsham man named his eldest son 
Alexander — all combine to form strong evidence that 
Alexander of Sereby was the father of Thomas of Howsham 
and grandfather of the Haverhill pioneers. 

"Jenett Emerson, of Serebie in the countie of Lin- 
coln," widow, made her will May 24, 1612. It was proved 
June 19, 1612. Desired to be buried in the parish church 
of Serebye as near the body of her late husband Alexander 
Emerson as might be. Bequeathed to her sons John, 
Robert, Thomas and Michael Emerson, making the last 
named executor; gave also to her daughter Anne and 
her daughter Agnes ffotherbie. Robert and Thomas 
Emerson were among the witnesses to the will. 

Thomas Emerson of Howsham was married only a 
few weeks after the distribution of this estate, which we 
may beheve was that of his mother. 

Going a step further back we come to the father of 
Alexander Emerson. 

"George Emerson thelder, husbandman of Serebye 
in the countie of Lincoln," made his will October 18, 
1573, and it was proved May 10, 1574, before the Dean 
and Chapter of Lincoln. He bequeathed to his children 
Helen, Alice, Ehzabeth, Richard, Mary and Alexander. 
Gave to the latter forty pounds, the lease of his farm, his 
"seastarne" (cistern?) and as much barley as would 
sow his (Alexander's) "land." Bequeathed "to the high 
altar for forgotten tithes two shillings" ; the same amount 
to the cathedral church of Lincoln. His wife to stay 
at the farm as long as she lives and have life use of the 
estate. A bequest to his brother Phillippe Emerson. 
Wife executrix. 

There was no other Alexander Emerson at Sereby, so 
far as the incomplete records show; Alexander of Sereby 
bestowed the name George on a son, probably his eldest; 



THE ENGLISH ANCESTRY 11 

the lands given to Alexander by George would constitute 
a nucleus for the large holdings Alexander had at his 
death; altogether we are justified in believing that George 
was father of Alexander, grandfather of Thomas of 
Howsham and great-grandfather of Michael, Elizabeth 
and Robert who came to New England. 

Back of that there is no real evidence of the line. A 
strong probability points to John Emerson, of Sereby, 
who died in 1561; and as his wife bore the name Isabella, 
(which was that of a sister of the New England settlers, 
and his own name John was used in each of the generations 
which we know belong in the fine), there is reason to infer 
that he was the father of George and Philhppe and very 
likely of an Edward who died in Sereby a little later, and 
whose name also was in the family from which the im- 
migrants came. 

The following pedigree may be written, then, from the 
parish and probate records, leaving the first generation 
at the head, although not positively asserting the con- 
nection between that and the second; but the connection 
between the second, third and fourth, and the link between 
the fourth and the Haverhill Emerson family are un- 
questionable. This pedigree constitutes a most satis- 
factory bond between Massachusetts and Lincolnshire, 
between New and Old England.

In addition to this account of the ancestry of Michael 
and Robert Emerson, there is another fine of evidence 
which finely confirms our conclusions and adds dignity to 
the family. 



12 EMERSON GENEALOGY 

In the library of the New England Historic-Genealogical 
Society, Boston, Mass., there is a four-volume work 
entitled "Lincolnshire Pedigrees," edited by the Rev. 
Canon A. R. Maddox, M.A., F.S.A., published by the 
Harleian Society, the leading genealogical society of 
England, at London, in 1902. We find, on page 330, 
the following: 

"EMERSON of Searby, Glamford Brigg, etc. 

(MS. C. 23, Heralds' College.) 

Arms, (Yorke's Union of Honour) — 

Azure, on a bend argent, three torteaux." 

After which the writer gives the pedigree, nearly as we have 
wrought it out above, down to "Thomas, 2nd son, 1604." 

Other descendants are shown at successive stages 
but they do not affect the American line which sprung 
from this "2nd son" Thomas. 

But we can go still further in our accumulation of 
historic evidence and examine the very book from which 
the "Lincolnshire Pedigrees" drew its facts. 

"THE UNION OF HONOUR 
containing the Armes, Matches And Issues of the Kings, 
Dukes, Marquesses and Earles of England from the conquest 
untill this present year, 1640. With the Armes of the English 
Viscounts and Barons now Being: and of the Gentry of Lincoln- 
shire. Whereunto is annexed a briefe of all the Battels which 
have beene fought and maintained by the English since the 
Conquest, till the yeere 1602. Collected out of the most 
approved Authours, former or moderne, by James Yorke 
Black-Smith. London. Printed by Edward Griffin. 1640." 
Several poetical testimonials to the value of the work are 
given in the early pages ; one of them will serve as a sample : 
"To his friend, James Yorke of Lincolne. 
Let none upbraid thee for thy skill, whereas 
Thy Trad's a Smith, thou bred in Lincolne was 
A citty great (where thou didst gather this) 
Knowne to our nation well, as London is. 
I speake thy worth, thy worke let all men see. 
And wrest it if they can, still Yorke shall he, 
But what, a Smith and Herauld? Yes, of fame:

THE ENGLISH ANCESTRY 13 

In due order among the shields of the gentry of the 
county, Yorke gives a page which we reproduce in its 
simple dignity. 

It may be fair to those of our readers who are not 
famiUar with heraldry to explain the meaning of these 
terms. 

The shield is ''azure," i.e. blue; athwart its face passes 
a band or ''bend" argent, i.e. silvered, on which three 
"torteauxes," or hemispherical roundlets, are placed; 
their color does not need to be mentioned because torteaux 
were always painted "gules," i.e. red. In the upper 
part of the shield appears the "cressant" or crescent 
moon, silver, of course, "for difference" or to distinguish 
the shield of a second son from that which the eldest 
son was entitled to use. The use of the three "torteaux " 
on the shield suggests high antiquity, for it was one of 
the very earliest symbols placed on coat armor. The 
form of the shield, too, is one of the simplest, not 
debased by being covered with many elements, 
strong in its use of a few symboUc figures. No crest or 
motto was shown in the Harleian description or that of 
Yorke. 

It does not appear that the Haverhill pioneers brought 
this coat of arms over with them. Probably they cared 
very little for it; like their father and grandsire they 
wrote themselves "yeomen"; their faces were turned 
toward the future rather than the past; they sought to 
build a family rather than to parade ancestral glory. 
Their descendants have a good right to use the shield as a 
family memorial, centuries old, an escutcheon to guard 
and honor. 

THE ANCIENT HOME OF THE HAVERHILL EMERSONS 

Cadney parish, with the village of Howsham; Searby, 
Wrawby and Glamford Brigges all lie near together in 
the very northern portion of Lincolnshire. The Emerson 
family held lands in all of them and passed from one to 
the other as they purchased or inherited tracts or resi- 



14 EMERSON GENEALOGY 

dences. Our interest must naturally center chiefly in 
the particular spot which gave birth to the pioneers. 

HowsHAM is a scattered hamlet of farmhouses in a 
flat, featureless region; ash, oak and elm trees are all 
about; haystacks stand as they have done every year 
time out of mind; slates have generally replaced the old 
thatch roofs, and some modern buildings and implements 
about would astonish Michael and Robert if they went 
back today; but the general appearance is unchanged. 
The comfort and prosperity of English farm life appear. 
Two miles off, the tower of Cadney parish church lifts 
its square bulk above the trees in silent dignity. 

The northeastern wall of the church, where cold and 
frost hold undisputed sway for the brief winter instead 
of alternating with warm sunshine, still resists ''the tooth 
of time," and the building looks as the boys first saw it; 
even the carved heads at the side of the windows still 
stare down at visitors as they have for centuries. The 
churchyard where Margaret and Thomas slept has 
some modern stones but keeps its general antique ap- 
pearance. Within, the old font, from which the vicar's 
hand lifted the water for their baptism, almost three 
centuries ago, is still fulfilling its appointed service; and 
here and there in the "restored" church are fragments 
and parts of the ornaments which gave occupation to 
their childish eyes when they failed to understand the 
preacher. The venerable pillars which upheld the roof 
do their office today, and the stately worship would 
impress their hearts now as it did when their infant minds 
were first awed into solemn stillness by chant and prayer 
and psalm. Thomas Emerson, their father, was one of 
the wardens of the parish for some years, and his family 
was doubtless one of the most loyal to the church; the 
young men had no local woes or persecutions which they 
sought to escape, so far as we can judge; some other 
cause must have nourished in their souls the spring of 
adventure or the flame of pilgrim zeal. 

There was material for this near at hand. The valley 
of the Ancholme wherein Cadney parish Hes was only a 




CADNEY CHURCH, NORTH WINDOW 



THE ENGLISH ANCESTRY 15 

little way from Gainsborough, one of the places where 
the Pilgrim church began its history. There Reverends 
John Robinson and John Smyth preached and gathered 
a congregation of intelligent, independent Christian men 
and women. After making Scrooby, a bit further west, 
their meeting place for a short time and being much 
interfered with, they betook themselves, in 1607, to 
Holland, by way of Boston in this same Lincolnshire, 
travehng across the county in a course not very far 
from Cadney parish; so that their sad persecutions, 
their exile to Holland and their voyage in the "Mayflower" 
to our Plymouth, in 1620, were famihar facts to the people 
of that section. Two of the three children of Thomas 
and Margaret Emerson who finally came over here were 
not born till after the " Mayflower's " voyage was made, 
and the sister was but four years old at that date; but the 
air was still throbbing with the echoes of the Puritans' 
hymns at Gainsborough and Scrooby, still vibrating 
with the hatred and cruelties of their persecutors, when 
Elizabeth and Michael and Robert learned to read and 
began to understand what Christianity really meant. 
Besides, a second veritable Pilgrim company under the 
leadership of Rev. Ezekiel Rogers assembled at Rowley, 
in Yorkshire, only a score of miles north of their home, 
and came in the year 1637 and founded Rowley in 
Massachusetts; and the young men, when making an 
occasional trip down the Ancholme and along the Humber 
to Kingston upon Hull (commonly called Hull), must 
have heard about that minister and the people who 
composed that church colony. 

At all events, the trio of Howsham Emersons actually 
came over to our Rowley and joined with those Yorkshire 
folk in due time, probably about the year 1650. Eliza- 
beth's husband, Thomas Lilford, was a resident of new 
Rowley for some years; Robert married a Rowley girl 
and probably lived at that plantation before making his 
home in Haverhill. We may reasonably beheve that 
their motive in coming across the Atlantic was not to 
escape persecution, but to better their condition; that 



16 EMERSON GENEALOGY 

the lure of a new country drew them; and that they kept 
in the western world all manner of love and tender 
thoughts for the father and mother and brothers and 
sisters and other kinsfolk who remained in the valley of 
the Ancholme and up in the wold where Sereby lay. 
The father's will shows his undiminished love for the 
children, certainly.

Page ^4- Moses Emerson, the ' ' schoolmaster ' ' at Milton, must 
have been the man whose name the town clerk wrote erroneously 
as "Edward Emerson" when he recorded his marriage to Re- 
becca Taylor Oct. 2, 1744. That will explain the minister, Rev. 
John Taylor, Rebecca's brother, calling the schoolmaster "Broth 
Moses Emerson" when recording the baptism of his son.

Ehzabeth, wife of No. 74, John, was b. Dec. 10, 1761, and so 
was ninety instead of "80" at her death. Changes in records 
of the sons are given in articles on them in the next generation.
