Reprinting genealogical material without adding corrections, 
or expanding on the original material, sometimes meets with 
criticism. This may be particularly true regarding material 
contained in the History of the Andrews Family. 

The intent here is to make previously published, but out of 
print, secondary source material available. It is felt that 
correcting another's work, without his or her consent and 
approval, is arrogant. The book is not presented in any way 
except as a reprint of the author's original work. 

With this in mind, the reader is cautioned that other genea- 
logical researchers have presented material disagreeing with 
some of the conclusions of this author. Their material has 
been both deposited in libraries and printed in genealogical 
publications, most notably New England Historic Genealogical 
Society's Register . 


The researches for this work have extended over a period of 
more than twenty years, conducted unier f.d verse circumstances ; 
one of which has been remoteness from the old family homes, 
in Massachusetts and Maine, where the records and information 
necessary for the history were to be principally found. The 
writer has never had the pleasure to visit Ipswich, Massachu- 
setts, the cradle of the family in America ; had this privilege 
been accorded, no doubt this book would have been more full, 
complete and accurate; but his investigations have been con- 
ducted largely through an extensive correspondence ; with the 
inspection of such books and copies of records as could be 
secured ; aided by the testimony of living witnesses. 

About the year 1867, he procure! from his grandfather. 
Isaac S. Andrews, then 79 years old, a man of remarkable mem- 
orv, who was well accjuainted with his kinsmen in Massachu- 
setts and Maine, an account of the family history, as far back 
as his grandfather, Solomon Andrews. Except for this infor- 
mation, so timely preserved, it would have been more difficult 
to connect the relationship back to the first settlers, and per- 
haps this book would never have been written. 

The identification of members of the family by a living 
witness, back to about the year 1750, has been of priceless 
value in establishing the Family Genealogy. 

Until within the last few years, little has been published on 
this branch of the family. No connected Genealogy of this 
family has V)een published prior to this work. 


The Andrews Memorial, published in 1872, barely mentions 
Robert Andros, of Ipswich, 1035, and his children. 

General Christopher C. Andrews, of St. Paul, has published 
some disconnected extracts from the records of Ipswich and 
Salem, in the Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder in 
1886-8. The writer had never seen these papers until 1889, 
but had procured similar information from the same records, 
though not so full. 

We desire to acknowledge valuable assistance, by information 
furnished for this work; by General C. C. Andrews, above; 
S. M. Watson, Esq., editor of the Maine Historical and Genea- 
logical Recorder, of Portland, Maine; from the Abraham Ham- 
matt Papers; the Ipswich Antiquarian Papers, by Augustine 
Caldwell, Esq., and Arthur C. Dowe, Esq., of Ipswich; the An- 
drews Memorial, by Rev. Alfred Andrews; Savage's Genea- 
logical Dictionary ; the Stearns Genealogy, by Dr. Solomon S. 
Stearns, of Washington D. C. ; the Amos Otis Papers ; the Port- 
land Transcript; and from the many friends who have kindly 
furnished family records, etc. 

It is with hesitation that we present these pages to our kins- 
folks, not unmindful that they probably contain some unavoid- 
able errors, and other imperfections. 

It has been prepared chiefly during the hours taken from 
busy professional cares and duties. 

We trust it will assist in preserving and perpetuating the 
history of Robert Andrews and his descendants, and make the 
family better acquainted, one with the other; hoping that other 
hands may improve and complete what is here presented. 

The writer has acquired many pleasant acquaintances during 
the preperation of the history, and now submits the results of 
his labors for the favorable inspection of the family. 

With kindest regards,

Audubon, Iowa, November, 1890. 


Andrews is a Christian name. The English word Andrew, 
and its equivalents in other languages has been used as a name 
for members of the human family from the time of remote 

The Greek word Avrip, pronounced with the long sound of the 
last a, Anar, signifies a man, in the most comprehensive sense. 

The Latin word Andreas, signifies a man, or manly, or like 

a mart. 

The English word Andrew means the same. 

It was the name of tha first disciple of Jesus. One commen- 
tator suggests, that probably the apostle had also a Hebrew 
name, and that the name Andrew was given to characterize his 
manly spirit, as his brother, whose Hebrew name was Simon, 
was called Peter, the rock. Perhaps this was about the earliest 
use to be found in history, of the word as the name of an 
individual. Because of the fact that it was the name of so 
distinguished and illustrious a personage in the annals of 
Christian history, it is not improbable, but quite natural for the 
believers and followers of Christ and his apostles to adopt and 
continue this name ; the same as at present people name their 
children after noted and illustrious persons. The home of 
Andrew was at Bethsaida, in Gallilee, then a Roman province. 

It is supposed that after the Crucifixion, this apostle preached 
in Scythia, Greece and Epirus, and finally suffered martyrdom 
at Patrse in Achaia, A. D. 62 or 70, on a cross called Si. 
Andrew'' s Cross, formed thus: X 


St. Andretc, is the patron Saint of Scotland, and is also held 
in great veneration in Russia as the apostle who according to 
tradition first preached Christianity in that country. In both 
countries there is an order of Knighthood named in his honor. 

If these traditions are based upon facts, there were opportu- 
nities to spread and perpetuate the name. Commiuiication 
between the Jewish provinces and Rome, at that period, would 
naturally take the name to the latter place ; and it would become 
coined into the Latin language ; even if it had not been already 
borrowed from the Greek ; just as we coin new words into our 
language to-day. Names or nouns are words most readily 

It was the most natural thing for the early Christians to pre- 
serve the names of their saints ; their first teachers and preach- 
ers; their authoriiies in doctrinal matter; they were land marks, 
so to speak. 

There are no acquirements more firmly impressed upon the 
different races of people, than their religious customs and usfiges. 

It may have been considered a mark of distinction to bear the 
name of a martyred Christian. It may have been regarded 

a duty by the Church to perpetuate the names of its saints and 
martyrs, by bestowing them upon living individuals. The 
signification of the name itself, alone, renders it peculiarly 
appropriate a^ a name for man. When the name became 
established once as a familiar one with the Romans, it 
naturally spread through Christendom, to every place where the 
Roman arms were victorious; or where the Christian religion 
was established, and so we find it all over Europe; Andrea in 
Italy; Andreas in Germany; Andre and Andrieux in France; 
Andres in Spain; and Andrew with its various terminations and 
corruptions in England. 

In England it is a very old as well as common name: prob- 
ably carried there by the Romans, Five hundred years of 
Roman rule was sufficient to permanently fix the name there. 

The English books on Heraldry give a full description of 
many Coats of Arms of the different branches of the family. 

Like many other old English names, the orthography has 


liccu corniplcd ; there are various termiiiatimis which have as 
little siguilicatiou a:s the Coals of A rins; ilu^ iiaiue is sjielled 
variously, thus: Andrew, Andrews, Andrewes, Andros, An- 
dross, Andrus, Andruss, Andras, Anders, Androse, j^ndrowes, 
Androuse, Andores, &c , &c. 

Antiquaries give little heed to the mere spelling of names; 
either by living individuals or as found in records; as evidence 
of relationship; other tests must be considered. 

It is not uncommon to find known relatives at the present 
iinie who spell their names differently; Two hundred years 
ago and prior to that time there were no standards for English 
orthography; the people spelled very carelessly, each to please 
his fancy, any way and every way ; many were then unable to 
read or write at all and trusted such matters to public scriveners 
and to the parish officials; one clerk would spell the name in 
his peculiar manner, while the clerk in a neighboring town 
spelled it differently ; long continuance in the same place by 
the same family, tended to the adoption of a form of the name 
peculiar to a given family of relatives, while the separation of 
relatives, exhibited frequently, a marked difference in the name. 

In such ways the forms of the name have multiplied. It is 
a wonder that our names have been so well preserved. 


It is the purpose of this work to deal particularly with the 
Andrews family in America^ and with the facts and circum- 
stances surrounding their early settlement here. To understand 
the family history better, one should have a good knowledge 
of English and Colonial history of those times. 

The greater number of people in this country named 
Andrews are of English origin. 

We may safely date the settlement of the family among the 
early emigrants to Massachusetts Bay Colony about the year 
1630; a brief survey of the history of this settlement will inter- 
est and assist us. In March, 1(528, a company of six gentlemen 
in England, purchased from the Plymouth C mpany, the terri- 
tory extending from a line three miles north of the Merrimack 
river; thence to a line three miles south of the Charles river; 
from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. These purchasers soon 
afterward conveyed an interest in their purchase to others, and 
the number of join^ proprietors soon became enlarged. 

They assumed the title of "The Massacliujetts Bav 
Company," and in a few days chose Matthew Cradock, a weal- 
thy merchant of London, their governor and Thomas Goffe, 
also a London merchani, deputy gov^ornor. 

In June lt)28, John Endicott, a Puritan of liie sternest type 

KAHJ.Y SK'ri'LKMKN"!' 11 

was sent over with a C()m[)any of emigrants who landed at Salem 
(Naiimkeag). and commeneed the settlement of that ancient 

Endieott was one of the original [)urchasers of the Plymouth 
Company and was ap})ointed governor of the colony bnt not of 
the company: the governor and government of the latter, 
remained in Englrnd, and gave instructions for the government 
of the colony. 

Mr. Roger Conant, with three others, had fixed their abode 
at Salem previously, but as he had not been sent there by the 
company, his settlement was not allowed to give date to the 
settlement of the town. March 4, KJ'iO, a charter was obtained 
from King Charles I, incorporating them as the "Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts Bay in New England;" the stock- 
holders to elect annually, a governor, deputy governor, and 
ei'J-hteen assistants, who were to administer the affairs of the 
colony in monthly meetings. Four great and general courts 
of the whole body of freemen, were to be held for the transac- 
tion of public affairs. Nothing was to be enacted contrary to 
the rio-hts of Englishmen, but the supreme power resided with 
the company in England. 

It was regarded as a patent for a trading corporation and no 
specific provision was made on the subject of religion. A large 
number of the })roprietors were attached to the Church of Eng- 
land. Endieott having visited Plymouth, desired to establish 
an independent church and renounce the use of Liturgy. 

He became involved in a dispute with two brothers named 
Browne, and who were among the original patentees, and who 
desired to have the services of the Church of England fully 
carried out in the colony. Endieott shipped them off' to Eng- 
land as "factious and evil conditioned." The company repri- 
manded him for this stretch of authority, but the complaints of 
the Brownes were unheeded. 

These matters took place during the troublesome times 
between Charles I, and the Parliament: and the acts of the 
Colonists with regard to Church discipline, undoubtedly 
escaped the careful scrutiny of the home government: again, 


the government was relieved from dissensions and disputes a t 
home, between the non-conformists and the established Church 
by the removal of the Puritans : and for that reason ignored 
the wrangles among the colonists. 

The English government did not exju-essly sanction or 
approve the actions of the colonists in religious all'airs, but 
rather avoided acting on the subject. 

It had been a difficult (question for many years in England. 
to deal with; but the discipline of the Established Church was 
wilfully disregarded, and the Congregational Church, estab- 
lished at an early day in Mass. Bay Colony. 

The Puritans were not all alike, nor (jf one mind on the 
subject of religious matters, except perhaps in their opposition 
to the Established church; there were factions among tlu^m. 

The settlers of Mass. Bay Colony were a ditferent ty})e from 
the simon pure Puritan of the Plymouth Colony: Endicolt is 
an example. 

In July 1()21), Governor Cradock proposed to the (•()in]);!ny 
to transfer the charter from Englciiul to the cok)iiy,- -■■to llioic 
who shall inhabit there'' — which led to ii very important increase 
in the number and distinction of the emigrants. 

A meeting of the company was called August '2X. to discus;; 
the question of the removal, and on the next day, it was dete]-- 
mined to be "the consent of the company that the governincnt 
patent should be settled in New England." 

At a court of the com])any on October 20. l(')2'.l, Mr. Jolni 
Winthrop was elected governor, and John Humphrey was elected 
deputy governor, for New England. 

At the last meeting of the company in England on bt)ard 
the Arabella, March 23, 1030, Mr. Thomas Dudley was elected 
deputy governor, in place of Mr. Humphrey, who had concluded 
not to go at that time. 

As a result of these operations, seventeen emigrant shi]»s with 
over one thousand passengers, left England for the colony, in 
1630, of which fourteen sailed before June. 

The principal persons were Sir Ilichard Saltonstall. Isaac 
Johnson, and his wife Lady Arabella, sister to the Earl of 


Lincoln. John Wintlirop and Thomns Dudley. These embarked 
on the sliij) Arahclld. named after the Lady Arabella Johnson. 

The emigrants included many persons of high character, 
wealth and learning, amnng whom were four non-conformist 
ministers. It was by far the most important expedition that 
had ever left England for America. 

More than two hundred of the emigrants, including Lady 
Johnson and her husband, died before December 1630, from 
hardships to which they were not innured. 

Governor Winthrop was a nolile example of the English 
gentleman: loyal, but firmly inclined to assert public liberty; 
attached by old association to the church, he desired to see it 
reformed upon what the Puritans deemed the pure basis of the 

They arrived in the bay in June 1()3(J, and found Endicott at 
Charlestown ; where at first they contemplated forming a settle- 
ment. The op]iosite peninsula then in posession oi a single 
occupant named Blackstone. attracted his attention; here 
Winthrop and his peo|)le began a settlement, named after the 
English town of Boston, in Lincolnshire, from which many of 
the emigrants came. 

Other parties of emigrants as they continued to arrive settled 
at various points in the vi3inity,and gave names to the towns 
and villages founded and settled by them. 

Each settlement at once assumed that township authority, 
which forever since has formed so marked a feature in the 
political organization of New England. The people assembled 
in town meeting and voted taxes for local purjwses, and chose 
thre3,five or seven of the principal inhabitants; at first under 
other ninios bit early known as ''salestmsn," who had the 
expenditure of the tax money, and the executive management of 
town affairs; a treasurer and clerk were also chosen, and 
a constable was soon added for the purpose of serving civil and 
criminal processes. 

Each town constituted, in fact, a little republic, almost com- 
plete in itself. 

About the time of the settlement of this colo:iy, several 


members of the Andrews family in England, were men of dis- 
tinction and occupied im})ortant positions in society, and in 
public affairs. It will be well to call attention to some of them 
as they were, to some extent, connected with colonial matters. 

Mr. Richard Andrews, a merchant at the Mermaid, in Cheap- 
side, London, a ''Godly man," who having lent £o()i) to Plym- 
outh Colony in New England, gave it to the pt)or. 

Winthrop says he gave many cattle by Mr. Hnmiry the 
deputy governor, and £')44. by Mr. Peters, to Mass. Bay 

He was an Alderman in London, and one of the associates of 
the Plymouth Company in l(t'2»). 

The reader is cautioned to observe the distinction between 
the terms company and colony; the latter was alwiy:; in Amer- 
ica, the former usually in England. 

Richard Andrews was written to by the court in L'i'j k 

In October 1637, a tract of land extending three miles up 
into the woods in the town of Scituate, Mass. . was granted to 
Richard Andrctrs, Hartley, Shirley and Beauchani}). 

Thomas Andrews was a member of the General (iourt of the 
"Governor and Colony of Mass. Bay in New ir^ngland,, in lOi'.K 
one year before the change of the charter to New England. 

The court had two sessicms that year, and he was one of the 
auditing committee. One writer siiggests: "from which it is 
supposed, he was one who came over with Governor Winthro]> 
and party." These fact-^ alone hardly wan-ant tlie inference. 

Thomas Andrews was a London merchant and Lord Mayor 
of London in the year lO-l-O, and made (/otton Mather his 
chaplain. He is supj)osed to be a bi'oth(M- to Richard ;ibove 
mentioned. Are ))olh the Thomas Andrews, aljove named

Bradford says: "the colony of Massachusetts Bay woiild 
have failed, had it not been for the money and credit of the 
Andrems, of England in connection with Shirley. 

William Andrews, was master of the ship Elizabeth, 
with passengers in 1(584. William Andrews was master of the 
ship, John and Dorothy, from Ipswich, Eng. in 1()37 ;and his 


son William Jr. was master of the ship, Rose from Yarmouth, 

We should hardly do justice to the family history, if we 
omitted to refer to Bishop Lancelot Andrewes, D. D. and 
will quote from his biography: 

Lancelot Andrews, D. D., Bishop of Winchester, one of 
the most illustrious of the prelates of England, was born in 
1555 in Thames street, Allhallows, Barking, London. His 
father Thomas, was of the ancient family of the Suffolk 
Andrewes ; in his later years he became master of Trinity House. 

Lancelot was sent while a mere child to the Cooper's Free 
School, Ratcliff, in the parish of Stepney. From this the youth 
passed to Merchant Taylor's School, then under the celebrated 
Richard Mulcaster. In 1571 he was entered at Pembroke 
College, Cambridge. He was here one of the first four scholars 
upon the foundation of Dr. Thomas Watts, successor of the 
venerable Nowell. Contemporaneously he was appointed to a 
scholarship in Jesus College, Oxford, at the request of the 
founder(T)r. Price), by Queen Elizabeth. In 1574-5, he took 
his degree of B. A. ; in 1576 he was chosen to a fellowship at 
his college; in 1578 he proceeded M. A. ; in 1580 he was or- 
dained, and in the same year his name appears as junior treasur- 
er; in 1581 he was senior treasurer, and on July 11 was incor- 
porated M. A. at Oxford. 

On passing M. A. he was appointed catechist in his college 
and read letters upon the Decalogue, afterward published 
causing a furor of interest far and near, as his first quaint 
biographer Isaacson tells. The notes of these lectures printed 
in 1642, authenticate themselves; later editions have been 
suspiciously enlarged, and otherwise altered for the worse. 

The notes are historically valuable and inportant, inasmuch 
as with Bishops Jewell and Bilson, he teaches in them, that 
Christ is offered in a sacrament, that is, his offering represented 
and a memory of his passion celebrated. 

Nothing can be more definite or emphatic than Andrewes' 
repudiation of a real external sacrifice in the bread and wine. 

From the university Andrewes went into the North by invi- 


tation of Henry Hastings, Earl of Huntingdon, lord president 
of the North. In 1585 he is again found at Cambridge taking 
his degree of B. D. In 1588 he succeeded Crowley in the 
vicarage of St. Giles, Cripplegate. Here he delivered his most 
penetrative and striking sermons on the Tcmptaiion in the 
wilderness, and the Lord's Prayer— the former published in 
1592, the latter in 1611. In a great sermon on April 10, Easter 
week, 1588, he most effectively, and with burning eloquence, 
vindicated the Protestantism of the Church of England against 
the Romanists. It sounds oddly to have "Mr. Calvin" adduced 
herein and elsewhere as a new writer, with lavish praise and 
affection. Passing other ecclesiastical advancements, Andrewes 
was preferred by Grindal, at the suit of Walsingham, to the 
prebendary stall of St. Pancrasin St. Paul's, London, in 1589. 
The prebendary had "the courage of his opinions," for Sir 
John Harington records that Sir Francis AValsingham his patron, 
having laboured to get him to maintain certain points of ultra- 
Puritanism, he refused, having, as the garalous knight, i a his 
State of the Church of England, cunningly remarks, "too much 
of the AvSpoi. in him to be scared with a councillor s frown or 
blown aside with his breath," and accordingly answered him 
plainly, that "they were not only against his learning, but his 
conscience." On September (>, 1589, he succeeded Fulke as 
master of his own college of Pembroke, being at the time, one 
of the chaplains of Archbishop Whitgift. His mastership of 
Pembroke was a success in every way. In 1589-90, as one of 
the twelve chaplains of the queen, he preached before her, a 
singularly outspoken sermon [March 4, 1590). Inthi? year, on 
October 13, he preached his introductory lecture at St. Paul's 
upon undertaking to comment upon the first four chapters of 
Genesis. These form part of the Orplian Lectures, of the folio 
of 1657, than which there is no richer contribution to the theo- 
logical literature of England, notwithstanding the imperfection 
of the notes in some cases. He was an incessant worker as well 
as preacher. He delighted to move among the people, and yet 
found time to meet with a society of antiquaries, whereof 


Raleigh, Sidney, Burleigh, Arundel, the Herberts, Saville, 
Stow, and Camden, were members. What by his often preach- 
ing testifies Isaacson, at St Gile's, and his no less often reading 
in St Paul's, he became so infirm that his friends despaired of 
his life. His charities were lavish, and yet discriminative. 

The dearth of 1594 exhibits him as another Joseph in his care 
for the afflicted and poor of "the Israel of God."" In 1595 ap- 
peared Tlic LanibcUi Articles, a landmark in our national church 
history. Andrewes adopted the doctrine of St Augustine as 
modified by Aquinas, Philosophically, as well as theologically, 
his interpretations of these deep things remain a permanent 
advance in theological-metaphysical thought. In 1598 he de- 
clined offers of the two bishoprics of Ely and Salisbury, his 
" nolo episcopari " resting on an intended alienation of the lands 
attached to these sees. On Nov. 23, 1600, was preached at 
Whitehall his memorable sermon on J ustification, around which 
surged a controversy that is even now unspent. The preacher 
maintained the evangelical view as opposed to the sacerdotal. 

On July ■!, 1691, he was appointed Dean of Westminster, and 
his sedulousness over the renowned school is magnified by Bish- 
op Hacket in his Life of Arch ibi shop Williams. On July 25, 
1603, Andrewes assisted at the coronation of James I. In 1604 
he took part in the Hampton Court Conference, and better 
service, was one of the committee to whom we owe our author- 
ised version of Holy Scripture. The Dean frequently preached 
before the king, and his majesty's own learning, given him 
by George Buchanan, made him a sympathetic hearer. 

Many of these sermons are memorable from their results 
and place in our eclesiastical history. In 1605 he was appoint- 
ed, after a third declinature, bishop of Chichester. In 1609 
he published his Tortura Torti, in answer to Bellarmine's 
Matthceus Tortus. This work is one of many bom of the 
gunpowder plot and related controversies. It is packed full of 
learning, and yet the argument moves freely. Nowhere does 
Andrewes' scholarship cumber him. It is as a coat of mail, 
strong but mobile. In this same year he was transferred from 


Chichester to Ely. His studiousness here was as intent as be- 
fore. He again assailed Bellarmine in his Rcsponsio ad Apol- 
ogiam, a treatise never answered. From 1()11 to 1018 Andrewes 
is to be traced as a preacher and controversialist in season and 
out of season. In 1617 he attended the king to Scotland. In 
1618 he was translated to the see of Winchester. In this year 
he proceeded to the Synod of Dort. Upon his return he became 
in word and deed a model bishop, while in every prominent ec- 
clesiastical event of the period he is seen in the front, but ever 
walking in all beauty of modesty and benignity. His benefac- 
tions were unprecedented. His learning made him the equal 
friend of Grotious, and of the foremost contemporary scholars. 

His preaching was unique for its combined rhetorical splen- 
dor and scholarly richness, and yet we feel that the printed page 
poorly represents the preaching. His piety was that of an an- 
cient saint, semi-ascetic and unearthly in its self-denial, but 
rooted in a deep and glowing love for his Lord. No shadow 
rests on his beautiful and holy life. He died Sept. 25, 1626. 
and the leaders in church and state mourned for him as for a 
lather. [End ijclopcedia Briffanica. ] 

Walter records this of him; Neal, bishop of Durham, and 
bishop Andrewes were standing together behind the king's chair 
at dinner, when king James turned to them and said "My lords, 
can not I take my subjects' money when I want it without all 
this formality in parliament?" bishop Neal readily answered, 
"God forbid, sire, but you should, you are the breath of our 
nostrils." The king then turned to bishop Andrewes; "Well, my 
lord, and what say you?" "Sir," said Andrewes, "I have no 
skill to judge of parliamentary cases." The king answered, "No 
put offs, my lord, answer me immediately." "Then sir," said 
he, "I think it lawful for you to take my brother Neal's money, 
for he otfers it." 

King James had such a veneration for this excellent prelate 
that he refrained from all levity in his presence. He was made 
a privy councilor by king James I, and was in no less esteem 
with king Charles I. His was a life of prayer, a great portion 
of five hours every day was spent in the exercise of devotion. 


in his last sickness he continued, while awake, to pray audibly, 
till his strength failed; and then by lifting his eyes, he showed 
that he still prayed. He was a patron of learning, being mas- 
ter of Latin, Greek. Hebrew, Chaldee, Syriac, and Arabic, beside 
fifteen modern languages. He had brothers, Thomas, and Nich- 
olas. — [Andrews Memorial. ] 

This great man lived in the reigns of three sovereigns of 
England ; queen Elizabeth, and kings James I, and Charles I, 
with w^hom he was personally acquainted. He died only two 
years before the organization of the Mass. Bay Company. The 
subject of colonization had been agitated for years prior to that 
time. It is very probable that one of his charitable nature 
would have been actively interested in the subject, which may 
have influenced his kindred to emigrate to America. 

Another member of the family, who figured prominently in 
colonial history, at a little later period, was Sir Edmund An- 
dros; born in London in 1037. His father was an officer of 
the royal household, and accompanied the royal family of 
Charles II, into exile. He distinguished himself in the war 
with the Dutch, in 1672, and appointed a major under Prince 
Rupert. He was knighted by king Charles I, in 1678 ; was 
governor of New York from 1674 to 1682. He was appointed 
governor of the New England colonies, by king James II, in 
1686 ,and attempted to consolidate the colonies of New England 
into one royal province. He arrived at Boston in December 
168(), with a royal frigate and two companies of troops to en- 
force his authority : but his acts of tyranny aroused tli9 indigna- 
tion of the people to that extent, that he was deposed by them 
in 1689, and sent back to England. He was governor of Vir- 
ginia from 1692 to 1698, and died in 1714. His obituary 
notice gives his name Andrvivs, and speaks in high terms of 
his honors, and career. Americans have been taught to regard 
him as a tyrant, his government trusted him as a faithful public 
officer. No doubt from his stand-point, he sought to perform 
his duty to his country, and sovereign, honorably and consci- 
entiously. His moral character was not assailed. 


From what has been already indicated, it will be seen readily 
that the Andrews of England, were in positions to be influen- 
tial with the government of the mother country, at and about 
the time of the settlement of this colony; this being true, prob- 
ably induced many of the family to emigrate there early in its 
settlement ; and we find many of the name in the records of the 
colony at that time. 

Robert Andrew, and wife Grace, settled at Boxford, Mass., 
in 1630, and had children; John and Robert. 

William Andrews, made free at Boston, Mar. 4, 1633. His 
name appears on the record of the General Court as constable. 

Thomas Andrews, of Dorchester, wife Ann, had three acres 
of land granted him by the town, near his house, in 1634 ; his 
son Thomas, baptised »June 23, 1639. 

Robert Andrews, was at Chebacco, in Ipswich, 1()35; wife 
Elizabeth; children, Alice, Rebecca, John, and Thomas; and 
nephews, John, Thomas, and Robert Burnham; was an inn- 

Samuell Andrews, aged 37, and wife Jane, aged 30, child 
Jane, aged 3, and child Elizabeth, aged 2, entered their names 
and were examined at the custom house at Ipswich, Eng. for 
passage in the ship Increase, for New England, 1635. He set- 
tled at Saco, Me., and died the second year after his arrival. 

His widow married Arthur Mackworth, probably his second 
wife ; he had a dwelling on Falmouth Foreside,-Portland Me. 

James Andrews, son of Samuell above, was born at Saco, and 
removed with his mother upon her second marriage, to Falmouth. 

He married Sarah, daughter of Michael Mitton, and grand 
daughter of George Cleeves, one of the first owners of Cusli- 
ings' Island, Portland- He had children, Elisha, who was a 
lieutenant as early as 1689 under Church in his campaign a- 
gainst the eastern mdians, and probably sons, James and 
Joshua, who died before their father. James Andrews, came 
into possession of Cushings' Island, then known as Andrews' 
Island, as the dowry of his wife, and held it from 1667 until 


The deposition of James Ross, aged about seventy years, 
who testified: " That he lived in Falmouth in Casco Bay the 
greater part of his time from his majority till he was taken 
by the indians in the fort with Cap* Davis and he very well 
knew the island opposite Perpudock called Andross his island 
& he never heard that any person claimed it but Mr James An- 
dross in that Day and Time. Mr Andross had a Garrison house 
on the island and he lived there as he was informed as his own 
proper estate & he S** Ross lived there some times there in 
S"* Mr Andross's house or Garrison with his uncle Skillings." 

During the time of king Philips war, about August 9, 1676 
the indians attacked Falmouth, burning the houses and killing 
the people, among others Nathaniel Mitton, brother of An- 
drews' wife. Some of the fugitives, including relatives of 
Andrews, with the assistance of himself and the minister, Mr. 
Burroughs, escaped to his island at the mouth of the harbor, 
where he had a strong-hold, and secured themselves by building 
a stone barricade over the cliff of "White Head," traces of which 
may still be seen, and lived several months there under great 
privations and dangers from the indians. Andrews abandoned 
Falmouth, and died at Boston in 1704. 

Thomas Andrews, and Joseph Andrews, drew house lots in 
Hingham, Mass. September 18, 1635. It is said that Thomas, 
the father came over with his only son, from Devonshire Eng. 
and settled at Hingham, where the son, Joseph, was the first 
town clerk. 

Joseph Andrews, was made free at Boston, March 3, 1636, 
made constable at Barre Cove, - now Hingham, July 8, 1686. 

The same year he was deputy of the General Court at Boston 
and one of a committee to inquire after the valuation of the sev- 
eral towns, and was a member of the General Court of that year, 
which sat until May 17, and was appointed one of a committee 
to look after the boundary between Massachusetts and Plymouth 
Colonies, and report at both courts, which was done at an ad- 
journed session, August 1, 1637. 

Goodman Andrews, was appointed 13th, March 1638, to run 


the line between Hingham and Weymouth. He was the father 
of Joseph above, and lived in Hingham to a great age. 

Thomas Andrews was a deputy to the general court from 
Hingham in 1678. Samuel Andrews, in the Boston custom 
house, in 1671; is a descendant of Thomas, and Joseph his son, 
of Hingham, in 1635. The writer has a letter from him, dated 
January 6, 1887; in which he says; "My ancestors came from 
Devonshire, Eng., and settled in Hingham, Mass., in 1635, 
where Joseph Andrews, was the first town clerk. I belong to 
the ninth generation, in this country, and am an old boy, hav- 
ing been born the nineteenth of April, 1809." 

John Andrews, son of Captain Thomas, of Hingham mar- 
ried Patience Nichols, September, 1658. 

Thomas, Abigail and Ruth Andrews, of Hingham testified 
in 1708 that Mehitable Warren loas not a wifdi.. 

December, 4. 1638, in record of quarter court, one William 
Andrews, was for having made an assault on one Coggan, sen - 
tenced to be severely whipped, and delivered up to whom tho 
court shall direct; but on September 3, William Andrews, wh > 
was formerly committed for his ill and insolent carriage, is by 
this quarter court, held at Boston, released, and put to Mr. En- 
dicott, who promises to pay Coggan £8, 10; Andrews to serve 
Mr. Endicott the rest of the time. 

Thomas Andrews, Watertown, Mass. afterwards at Oambridij ^ 
had wife Rebecca, and children, Thomas, bom Octol)er fifteenth 

1641. Daniel, born ■. Rebecca, born A})ril eighteenth, 


John Andrews, Ipswich, 1642, had wife Jane. 

Rev. Samuel Andrews, son of Samuel and Elizabeth of Cam- 
bridge, was born there January 2i), 1656, married Abio-ail, 
daughter of Robert Treat, governor of Conn, and settled at 
Milford; Conn., in 1685. 

Mr. Samuel Andrews, and Mr. Cotton, the two fellowes of 
Harvard college, were paid £50, for helping to carry on the 
president's work, after Mr. Oakes' death. 

John Andrews, a sea cooper, from Wales, came to America 
about l(]f)-3, and married Susanna White, at Boston. An "An- 
drews Memorial" ol: this family has been written and published 
by Lieut. George Andrews, U. S. A. 

Daniel Andrews, son of Thomas, of Watertown, was a school- 
master in Salem, in 1072. Savage says: he was accused of 
witchcraft, in 1092, — perhaps because he knew more than 
some of his neighbors, — biit was released early the following 
year, when reason prevailed, against the influence of Cotton 

John Andrews, and Mary his wife, settled at Farmington, 
Conn., in lO-lO. A very full and complete genealogy of this 
settler and his descendants, down to the year 1872, has been 
compiled and published, by Eev. Alfred Andrews, of New Brit- 
ian, Cann., of his descendants, under the title of "Andrews 
Memorial.'' It contains 652 pages, embracing the names of 
over 2000 descendants of John and Mary Andrews. This is 
one of the best works on the Andrews family ever published in 
Amarica ; while it is devoted principally to the authors branch 
of the family, it contains much valuable information respecting 
the family generally, and has been prepared at gr<^at labor and 
expense, and with care. It will prove of inestimable value to 
his kindred in establishing and preserving the family history 
and relationship. 

William Andrews, the first school-master at Hartford, Conn. , 
1()81): will dated April 1059: his name is on the monument of 
the Center Church cemetery, as one of those who came from 
Massachusetts, through the wilderness, with Rev. Thomas 
Hooker; wife Mary died at Cambridge. Jan. 10. 1040; another 
record says, at Braintree, Nov. 10, 1039; children, John, Eliz- 
abeth, Thomas, Samuel ; second wife, Abigail. 

Henry Andrews, Taunton, Mass., 1639; made free 1(54:3;

Samuel Andrews, Marlbourough,1667. 

Samuel Andrews, New Haven, 1654. 

Thomas Andrews, Dorchester, 1667. 

It will be noticed that the ancestry of this family is not 
founded on the traditional " Three brothers" theory; neither 
is it improbable to suppose that the early settlers of the name 
were related. The records in England would probably give 
the information in many cases, if not in all. The antiquarian 
would doubtless meet with success should he investigate the 
subject, as has been done in numerous similar instances. 

Note — In 1834 Farmer found of the name of Andrews, 
fifteen graduates at Harvard, eight at Yale, and six at other 
New England colleges. 



It was a frequent custom for the early settlers in America to 
name the new homes after something in "Merrie England;"" 
sometimes for a noted person, again for the old home town there. 

Ipswich, Mass., was named after Ipswich, in England, a 
town in Essex. Ipswich, Mass., was the home of Robert An- 
drews and his descendants from 1635 down to the time of the 
Revolutionary war, so far as it relates to the writer's branch of 
the family ; perhaps some of the kindred yet live there. 

The papers in the Ipswich public library, prepared from th e 
manuscripts of Abraham Hammatt, furnish considerable bio- 
graphical information concerning the inhabitants of the place 
from the first settlement of the town, in 1633, down to 1700. 

He was an antiquarian and once lived at Bath, Me., from 
1800 to 1836 ; then removed to Ipswich, where he resided until 
his death, August 9, 1854, aged 74 years. The Ipswich Anti- 
quarian papers, by Augustine Caldwell, and Arthur W. Dowe, 
of Ipswich, furnish much information concerning the people 
and affairs of the town from its earliest settlement. These 
papers were published irregularly, from October, 1879 until 
April, 1885. 

We will notice a few of the earliest records of the place: 

Aprill 1"", 1633  — It is ordered that noe pson wtsoeuer 
shal goe to plant or inhabitt att Aggawam, withoutt leave of 
the court, except those that are already gone, vz: Mr. John

1638-9 Mch 18, Maschonomet the Sagamore of Agawam, 
acknowledged that hee had received '20 £ of Mr. John Win- 
thrope Jnor for all his land in Ipswich, for wch he acknowl- 
edged himselfe fully satisfied. 

1639 Nov. 5. It was ordered that Ipswich should satisfy 
Mr. Winthrope for the 20 1 paid the Indian for his right. 

These settlers seem to have done as well in their dealing with 
the Indians as the famous William Penn. 

1640, May 13, Robert Andros is granted to draw wine at 
Ipswitch, with the condition of the towne. 

1648 Oct 18 — The village at the newe meadows at Ipswich 
is named Toppestield. 

Captain Edward Johnson, of Wolmm, author of the history 
of New England, entitled, " Wonder working Providence of 
Sion's Savior in New England," and who was an ancestor of 
of the Stearns branch of the Andrews family, found in the gen- 
ealogy of this book, thus discoursed tm Ipswich, in 1()34: 

This year came over a further supply of eminent instruments 
for futhering this admirable worke of his, among whcmi the 
Reverend and judicious servant of Christ, Mr. Nathaniel Ward, 
who took up his station at the Towne of Ipswich, where the 
faithful servants of Christ gathered the ninth Church of his. 

This town is scituated on a faire and delightful River, whose 
first rise or spring begins about five and twenty miles further 
up in the Country, issuing forth in a very pleasant pond. But 
soon after it betakes its course through a most hideous swamp 
of large extent, even for many miles, being a great Harbour for 
Beares; after its coming forth at this place, it groweth larger 

iPSWlt'H 27 

by the income of many small rivers, and issues forth in the sea, 
due east over against the Island of sholes, a great place of fish- 
ing for our English Nation. The peopling of this Towne is by 
men of good ranke and quality, many of them having the yearly 
Revenue of large lands in England before they come to this 
wilderness, but their Estates being imployed for Christ, and 
left in banke, as you have formerly heard, they are well content 
till Christ shall be pleased to restore it againe to them or theirs 
which in all reason should be out of the Prelate's Lands in 
England. Let all those whom it concerns (to judge) consider 
it well and do justice herein. Thi3 Towne lies in the Sagga- 
moreship or Eirldom of Agawam, Now by our English Nation 
called Essex. It is a very good Haven Towne, yet a little barr'd 
up at the mouth of the River. Some Merchants here are, (but 
Boston being the chiefest place of resort of shipping,) carries 
away all the Trade. They have very good Land for Husbandry 
where rocks hinder not the course of the Plow. The Lord has 
beene pleased to increase them in Corne and Cattle of late ; In- 
somuch that they have many hundred quarters to spare yearly, 
and feed, at the latter end of summer, the Towne of Boston with 
good Beefe. Their Houses are many of them very faire built, 
with pleasant Gardens and Orchards, consisting of about one 
hundred and lorly Fj milies. Their meeting-house is a very 
g lod prospect to a great part of the Towne, and beautifully 
built ; the Church of Christ here consists of about one hundred 
and sixty soules, being exact in their conversation and free 
from the Epidemicall Disease of all Reforming Churches, which 
under Christ is procured by their pious. Learned and Orthodox 

Among the early settlers of Ipswich appear the names of 
some noted families: 

Hon. Col. John Appleton, born at Little Waldingfield, Eng- 
land 158(3; settled at Ipswich, with his father, Samuel Apple- 
ton in 1635 ; died aged 87 years. 

Major Greneral Daniel I>6imisoii, Commander in chief 


of the Military forces of Mass. Bay Colony, settled at Ipswich, 
1637; died Sept. 20, 1682. 

Samuel Symonds, Barrister, born at Yieldhom, Essex, Eng- 
land ; settled at Ipswich, 1637; was a magistrate, representative 
and deputy governor of the colony, 1673. 

The ancestors of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Gen. William 
T. Sherman, are said to have been among the early settlers at 
Ipswich. Thomas Emerson, settled there in 1638, and Cornelius 
Waldo, in 1652. 

Rev. Nathaniel Rogers, came from England, and settled at 
Ipswich in 1636; died July 2, 1655; he was son of Rev. John 
Rogers, of Dedham, England, who died Oct. 18, 1639, aged 67. 

He is claimed to be the grandson of John Rogers, Prebendary 
of St Paul's, Vicar of St Sepulchre's, and Reader of Divinity; 
burned at Smithfield, England, Feb. 14, 1555. This Nathaniel 
Rogers, had a son, John Rogers, President of Harvard College, 
who died July 2 1684, aged 54. His son Rev. John Rogers, was 
pastor of the first church, Ipswich, and died Dec. 28 1745, aged 
80. Rev. Daniel Rogers, grandson of Nathaniel, died at Exe- 
ter, N. H. Dec, 9, 1785. aged 78 years. 

Sir Richard Saltonstall, who came from England with Gov. 
Winthrop, in 1630, built his house in Ipswich, probably about 
1635. In later years it was occupied by Col. Hodgkins, of 
Revolutionary fame. It is said to be still standing near the 

Gov. Thomas Dudley, resided at Ipswich, from soon after the 
settlement, until 1()39. 

AVilliam Clerk, was one of the twelve who came with Win- 
throp and commenced the settlement at Ipswich, 1632-3. 
Thomas Emerson, was one of the "seven men" in 1646.

Mr. Augustine Caldwell, antiquarian, of Ipswich, says that 
Andrews is a more common name at Essex than at Ipswich; 
Essex was the Chebacco parish of early Ipswich, — - and ])rob- 
ably the Andrews farms were there. The old Andrews House 
on Turkey shore, was not the original Andrews house; it was 
built by Daniel Hovey, in 1068 ; and David Andrews was the 
owner of it when he died, perhaps twenty years ago. It was in 
the Andrews name only for a generation. The original An- 
drews town house was an "ordinary, " (an inn.) 

From an Essex newspaper the following items are clipped: 
GOOD GBIT. — On Wednesday afternoon, as Mr. William An- 
drews was in the woods a mile from any house, getting timber, 
a large stick fell on to his right leg, breaking both bones be- 
tween the knee and ankle. He called for help but no one came 
and he splintered up his leg, cut two crutches and hobbled out 
to the house of Mr. Henry Andrews, when he was taken home. 

The dwelling house and about quarter of an acre of land sit- 
uated on milk street, the homesthad estate of the late Almira 
Andrews, was sold at auction on monday afternoon. E. B. An- 
drews was the purchaser. This shows that the name is still 
familiar within the limits of old Ipswich. 


The town of Lovell, in Oxford county, Maine, was the home 
of Captain Abraham Andrews, Captain Samuel E. Andrews, 
and many of their numerous descendants. It will not interest 
other branches of the family so much, but is briefly noticed 
here as the one spot upon which we look back as Home ; the 
scene of youthful recollections, the home of many early friends 
who have been very dear through life ; where we were born and 
reared to manhood. 

Our relatives there embraced a wide acquaintance, including 
the families of Andrews, Hamblen, Stearns, Kimball, Gordon, 
Fry, Fickett, Barker, Heald, Keniston, Kilgore, Abbott, Dres- 
ser, McDaniels. Russell, Pottle, and some others. 

It was settled about 1788. After the Revolution Captain 
Abraham Andrews, with his wife's uncle, John Stearns, then an 
old man abtmt seventy years of age, and her brother, Benja- 
min Stearns, came to Lovell and were the first settlers there; 
others soon followed them, among whom were Animas McAlis- 
ter, Stephen Dresser, Joshua Whiting, Oliver Whiting, Josiah 
Heald and Samuel E. Andrews, a nephew of Captain Abraham. 
These people all came from Massachusetts. 

Their route seems to have been by way of Concord, N. H. 
From that point there was a rude bridle path across the coun- 
try through the woods south of the White mountains, made by 
Stark and his followers, probably, to Fryeburg, on the Saco 
River, a distance of eighty miles; which place was settled 


about 17(^)3; also by settlers from Massachusetts. The distance 
from there to the central part of Lovell, where the settlement 
was made, was something better than a dozen miles, about fif- 
teen miles to the spot located by Captain Abraham. Fryeburg 
and Lovell have always been adjoining towns. The term town 
must be understood by western people as meaning a township 
and not a village. 

There is a large body of water running nearly, if not quite, 
through the whole length of Lovell from north to south, ten 
miles or more in length, called Kezar pond, extending nearly 
to the Saco river, which in its meanderings in the town of Frye- 
burg traverses nearly forty miles. These waterways must have 
greatly facilitated travel for the new settlers through an un- 
broken forest, in summer easily navigated by boats and rafts; 
the smooth surface of the ice in winter aiforded an excellent 
highway, as many a boy of my time can testify who has tried 
it on his skates. 

Samuel E. Andrews did not come by the Concord route, but 
from the south, by way of Buxton; perhaps may have been at- 
tracted there from the fact that his father's uncle, Jonathan 
Andrews, had settled at Scarboro fifty years before, where there 
was quite a numerous family of relatives. 

The attraction for settlement at Lovell was the free lands of- 
fered to new settlers. Captain Abraham obtained one of the 
free lots of one hundred acres on the side of Sebatos mountain 
and there made his home; the same place where Charles G. 
Andrews resided until within a few years since. 

Benjamin Stearns at first occupied the adjoining land, where 
Joseph Smith now lives, and boarded with his brother-in-law 
Andrews. Afterwards he moved to the hill south of Lovell 
Center, sometimes called Dea. Steam's Hill, and made a farm 
there, occupied afterwards for many years by his son of the 
same name, better known as Deacon Stearns, noted for his pure 
life, eminent faith, piety and active interest in religious mat- 
ters. He died at his post of duty in the meeting house about 


John Stearns, the nncle, settled at Lovell Center and made 
the farm afterwards occupied by his son David for many years, 
where James Evans now resides. 

Sebatos mountain was named in honor of an indian of that 
name who served as a guide for Arnold's expedition to Quebec 
in 1775; by whom I am not advised. As Capt. Abraham An- 
drews and Samuel E. Andrews, then a lieutenant in Captain 
Hutchins' company, were both in the expedition, they may have 
known the indian and perhaps named the mountain for him in 
recognition of his services on that occasion. There is a tradi- 
tion that this indian once killed a wildcat, or catamount, as they 
are called in that vicinity, on this mountain before the settle- 
ment by the white people there. 

It is said that the new settlers started from Fryeburg on a 
prospecting tour and that the first " Massachusetts Soil " dis- 
covered was in Lovell, meaning that the soil in Lovell resem- 
bled that in Massachusetts. 

Isaac S. Andrews, commonly called " Uncle Isaac," related 
some facts which throw a few rays of light upon the early life 
of the new settlers; concerning his father, Captain Abraham, 
he said that he worked on his lot in summer clearing up fields 
for cultivation. — Our people in the west will have to be told 
that this meant the hewing down of an immense growth of for- 
est trees and burning the wood, occupying many days to clear 
otf even an acre of ground. The land when cleared of trees 
was little better than a bed of stones. On such land the set- 
tlers were enabled to raise small crops of corn, rye, oats, some- 
times a little wheat, flax for linen, etc., peas, beans, pumpkins, 
potatoes and vegetables. It produces very good grass and hay. 

In winter Captain Andrews worked for a man named Evans, 
in Fryeburg, cutting and hauling pine lumber into Saco river to 
be rafted down to the older settlements near the sea. He worked 
there during the week and on Saturday evening after the work 
was finished would take a load of provisions and supplies for 
the family on his back and travel down the river to Kezar pond, 
then up the pond on the ice to the mill brook on the east side, 


then up the brook by a path through the deep snow two miles 
further to his cabin at Sebatos. arriving there at midnight or 
Later. After a few hours rest he worked ]>art of the day on 
Sunday preparing fuel and attending to other necessary work 
for the comfort and support of the family during another week, 
and at night retraced his steps to Fryeburg, fifteen miles, in 
time to resume his labors on Monday morning. Such was the

in active campaigns to maintain the independence of his 

The settlers of Lovell were poor and relied entirely on their 
own exertions for support. It must have been a struggle for 
existence to wring their support from such surroundings. They 
must have possessed a moral courage of an exalted kind to 
cling to such methods of living. On one occasion food became 
so scarce they were obliged to dig up and eat the potatoes plant- 
ed for seed until a supply of food could be obtained. 

Before the Revolution Captain Andrews owned a farm in 
Massachusetts and was in prosperous circumstances. At the 
close of the war these had nearly all gone and his possessions 
consisted in Continental money. He told of paying twenty-five 
dollars for his breakfast at that time in such money; and of 
giving about twelve hundred dollars of the same kind for a 
heifer. No doubt his wife, Esther Stearns, came to her death 
from hardships and privations to which she was not inured in 
that new country ; in her efforts to rear her family. She had 
been well ra ised. The people of Massachusetts, before the Rev- 
olution, had become prosperous and had comfortable homes. It 
was a terrible change to leave such a home and go down to a 
howling wilderness ; such as the back woods of Maine then pre- 
sented. She was a soldier's wife and followed where duty lead. 

This was not an isolated instance. What was true of 
Captain Abraham Andrews and his family was equally true 
of other settlers of Lovell contemporaneous with him. We 


have much to admire in the fortitude, heroism and patriotism 
of our ancestors. Those days of hardships have long since past, 
and Lovell has since been the happy homes of nearly four gen- 
erations of prosperous people. 

'' Their bones are dust, 
" Their swords are rust." 

It would be absurd for one who has visited the place but 
once in more than a quarter of a century, to discourse on the 
history of the place, to those who have resided there during 
that period. 

(3ur maternal uncle, Winfield S. Hamblen, who was born in 
Lovell, but since about the year 1859 a resident of the state of 
Pennsylvania, thus describes the home at Lovell: 

I regret that no one has attempted a pen picture of the old 
homestead; (of his father) we all do love it so well, as for my- 
self, I never think of our old home without an instinctive desire 
to raise my hat in token of respect for it. It is a sort of sacred 
presence which hushes the voice, — you may not remember as 
well as I do that beautiful natural meadow, which lay to the east 
of the old home ; it was bordered around with trees of delight- 
ful variety ; a fine trout brook, well stocked with fish, wound 
its way through its midst, with waving grass on either bank ; 
on the north was the large mill brook, of which you spoke, 
flowing into the .finest of all little lakes, " Kezar Pond," that 
lay at the west of the farm. During the time I lived there, ex- 
cept in the winter, scarcely a day passed that I did not look up- 
on that little lake which mirrored its beautifiil borders that 
rise high above its surface. I used to run the risk of break- 
ing the Sabbath, in a Puritanic way, that I might behold it. 
The farm itself lay upon a cone about three hundred feet in 
height, to the west, and slightly to the north lay the pond, 
about a mile wide ; north and west like the section of an amphi- 
theatre were the foot hills of the White mountains, the smaller 
feet being bathed in its very waters. In form like rows those 
ranges of hills raised higher and higher, until we called them 
mountains, which still continued to rise until they break in 


white caps of snow, some twenty or thirty miles away, then re- 
ceding in airy undulations as they raised, as Richardson would 
say, the scene was " like a swelling sea wave which a magician's 
wand has stretched, transforming it instantly and holding it in 
bondage evermore." Well do I remember the warm days in 
June when hoeing corn, and my hoe handle seemed to need rest, 
of looking far away over the scene and catching a glimpse of 
snow around Mt. Washington so fair and white ; it seemed very 
refreshing. Then near the building was a spring and beauti- 
ful pine grove which we used to call " the pines," that gave us 
such pleasure as a playground; it was a grateful shade in sum- 
mer, and protected us from the north-west wind in winter, be- 
sides it was ever permeating the breezes which went sighing 
and soughing through the branches, with its own balm of heal- 
ing. — Don't let me forget to say that it always furnished me 
pitch with which to mend my sfnhhcd foe ivlicn I ivcnf hare 


Rev. Alfred Andrews, author of the Andrews Memorial, treat- 
ing of the Connecticut branch of the family, descended from 
John and Mary Andrews, of Farmington; gives a good idea of 
the vast amount of labor and the great difficulties attending the 
labors of the antiquary, in the compilation of a work of this 
kind. His description of the general character of his kindred 
is a good picture. Much of what he says will apply with equal 
force to this work. 

He says: The purpose and object of the following pages is 
to give a brief genealogical history of John Andrews and his 
wife, Mary; the settlers in Connecticut, KUO, and their de- 
scendants. An attempt has been made in these pages to give 
an account of the birth, parentage, occupation and location, of 
each of the sons and daughters of these Puritan pioneers, and 
early settlers in this country. It seems to be j) roper just here 
to say that this object has been accomplished, with more or less ac- 
curacy and fullness, in exact proportion to the record found, or 
facts furnished. Every available means have been used; private 
diaries, the old family bible, school and ecclesiastical society 
records, church and town records, probate, court and war rec- 
ords, state archives, private burying grounds and public ceme- 
teries, printed genealogies and family memorials, and last, but 
not least, letters correspondence directly with the families of 
the name, to the number of 2,000 received and a far greater 
number written, to which no response was ever made. 


The public records clowu to the war of the Revohitioii, 1775, 
were to some good degree and extent, ke[)t in good order, con- 
sidering the newness of the country ; biit at the breaking out 
of that war, ahnost everything of the nature was abandoned, 
both in families and public, except, perhaps, the Prol)ate court 
and a very few churches ; then immediately siicceeding the war 
was a wonderful spirit of emigration among the survivors, and 
families removed everywhere, very like the dispersion of the 
Jews of old — for they forsook fatlun-. mother, brothers and sis- 
ters, houses and lands, for the frontiers and border settlements; 
bidding farewell to all family coiuiections, genealogies and me- 
morials; their strong arms were exclusively occupied in clear- 
ing the new farm and building the log lumse; — not even time 
or material to furnish a headstone to the grave when one of 
their number died. In the new country every energy was taxed 
for a subsistence, hence the great, and in many instances, in- 
surmountable difficulties in finding the descendants of these 
enterprising emigrants. 

I acknowledge, however, my obligaticuis to many genealo- 
gists, and profess a strong desire to gratify and aid <d] studious 
antiquaries in their researches after facts, dates and history. I 
honor this class of men and women, yea, more, I reverence them 
as gifted and inspired of God in an important sense, for it only 
falls to the lot of a few to iidierit the taste, patience or skill, to 
gather materials and collate them into a genealogy ; while doing 
it they are almost sure of incurring the ridicule of the tlu^uglit- 
less and gay, as well of the contempt of the avaricicms and 
money making jiortion of community. It is only succeeding 
generations that will duly appreciate their labors, or honor 
their gi.ives. Very few of all the thousands of names which 
a])pear in the following pages, ever apj)eared before in history; 
for the most part they are persons unknown to fame, hence the 
task of writing a sketch, even a ])rief one, has been found quite 
a different thing from merely transcribing what, from an index, 
may be already found in print; not that our family are en- 
tirely unknown to fame ; far am I from a disposition to under- 
value the progenitor or his descendants; I am proud of both. 


In morals, (listinj^nuHlied for pioty, patronism, honesty, indus- 
try and frugality; their natural traits and gifts; common height, 
moderately high cheek bones, and ruddy countenances, inclined 
to be thick set, of quick step, with sanguine temperament, strong 
passions, but generous impulses, light, clear complexion, tena- 
cious of life and hopeful, extremely fond of frontier life and 
always ready to enlist in defense of country, restless under re- 
straint, of ready wit, fond of domestic life, very prolific, of good 
common sense, or when sudden emergencies arise, have expedi- 
ents ready. 

The males are mostly farmers or mechanics, generally well 
to do in the world; the females have been found equal to their 
brothers and have formed alliances quite as honorable and satis- 
factory. Very few of the descendants of John and Mary 
Andrews are, or have been found in deep poverty or ignorance. 
Of several thousand with whom I have corresponded, a fair 
hand, and sensible expressions have almost invariably appeared, 
while many have evinced intellectual tastes and capacities which 
would grace any position in life. And this is found true of both 
sexes alike. 


In the genealogy the families are arranged in the order of 
each generation. 

The name of the head of a family is given in full, followed 
by the Christian name, only, of the children, to avoid rei)etition 
of the surname. 

The names are consecutively numbered; some names appear- 
ing twice; first as a citild, second as flic head of a fain ill/. In 
such cases, when the name appears the second time, as the head 
of a family, it is followed by the number, in brackets, given the 
first time. 

To find the line of ancestors, take any given name and trace 
the line backwards by the numbers as above indicated; also, 
following the name of the head of a family, the line of ances- 
tors is given in italics, with the ex[)onent nund)er of the gener- 
ation attached, in parenthesis, thus:

1. ROBEET ANDREWS," came from England, and settled 
at Ipswich, early in the year 1(335. 

The Andrews Memorial states: that Capt. Andrews, came 
from Norwich, Norfolk County, England, early in 1()35, as own- 
er and master of ship '' Angel Gabriel." Richard Mather, iii his 
narrative of his voyage in the James says, they came in compa- 
ny part of the way, and that many Godly people were on board 
the shi]). 

This Ca})t. Andrews had a sister Mary, who was the wife of 
Robert Biirnham.* Their 3 boys. John. Thomas and Robert, 
it is said, were pnt in chfirge of their uncle Andrews, master of 
the shij) '' Angel Gal)riel.'' which was cast away at Tamma(piid, 
in Maine, in a terril)le storm, lo An<^. l()3r). after which loss, 
C'Upt. Andrews settlcHl witli his '.\ nephews at ('hebacco, in Mas- 
sachusetts 13a}'. 

In a book entitled "Ancient Pemaquid," by J. W. Thornton. 
lcS57, it says: On the last Wednesday of May in this year 
(1635), the "Angel Gabriel," a strong ship of 240 tons, and 
carrying a heavy armament of K) guns swung at her moorings 
in the Kinjj's Road, four or five miles distant from the cit^-. 
Her destination was Pemaquid. On her deck was a company of 
many Godly CJhristians, some from other shi])S, bound for New 
England; one of them was Richard Mather, visited there by Sir 
Ferdinando Georges, but the chief personage in the company 

* Sep Note 1 Ajjpendix. 


was John Cogswell, a London merchant of wealth who with the 
fragments of his fi'eight, and accompanied by his servants, set- 
tled at I[)swich. 

The ship in the fury of an easterly storm with her cargo were 
totally lost; some of the passengers not esca})ing death. This 
shipwreck is chronicled as one of the greatest disasters in the 
annals of Pemaquid. 

An old Pemaquid seal is given in the book as shown in the 
accompanying engraving.

Accomjianying the cut of the seal in the book is this note: 

" The Gabriel,'' a little bark, was one of Frobisher's discov- 
ery shi})s engaged in no less than three of his expeditions, the 
voyages of 1570-7-'88, and was, it may be supposed a favorite 
vessel with him. That ship may be taken as a representative 
of the naval architecture of that time, which was not essentially 
modified even down to the days of her namesake, the ''Andrei 
Gabriel," oi Pemacjuid memory. Fortunately the contemporary 
accounts of Frobisher's voyages, furnish hints for a general 
description of this pioneer ship in the missicm of Christian civ- 
ilization to the new world; she was about thirty tons burdtai. 

Sir Ferdinando Gorges, wns a patentee of the lands about 
Saco and Portland, Maine. 

John Cogswell, mentioned, settled at Ipswich, and had lands 
granted him there as appears from the records : under date of 
1()85, is this entry: 


Granted to Mr. John Ooggswell three hundred acres of hind at 
the further Chebacco, hauing the River on the southeast, the 
land of Will'" White on y'" Northwest & a Creek Coming out of 
the Riuer towards will'" whites farme on the northeast. Bound- 


ed also on the west with a creeke & a little brooke. Also there 
was granted to him a percell of ground containing eight acres, 
vpon part whereof the said John Coggswell hath Built an house, 
it being in }" corner lott in Bridge 8treete and has goodman 
Bradstreete houselott on y" s. e. 

The was also granted to him six acres of Ground late mr. 
John Spencers, Butting vjion the river on the south east haue- 
ing a lott of Edmund Gardners on the north east & a lott of 
Edmund Saywords on the south west well six acres of ground 
the sd John Coggswell hath sold to John Perkins the younger 
his heirs and assigns. 

The fact that he was designated "Mr." at that date, and the 
considerable amount of land granted him indicate that he was 
a man of good social standing in society. 

The records of about that date further show that Cornelius 
Waldo was Mr. CoggswelFs farmer. 

The name of Robert Andrews does not ap})ear among those 
who went to Aggawam in 1(]33 ; but it does appear frequently 
in the public records after that date. 

He was " made free () May 1()35." 

And " 3 8ept 1035 Robf Andrews licensed to keep ordinarye 
(an inn) in the plantacon where he lyves during the pleasure 
of y"' court." This is the earliest reference to a public house in 
the records of Ipswich. 

Hammatt says that he possessed a houselot on the south side 
of the river in 1<)35, 

It is stated in the antiquarian papers that Robert Andrews 
lived near the South Church. 

We find his name several times in the records of grants of 
lands. Aprill 20, 1(535. Thomas Firman was granted one hun- 
dred acres of land, l)eyond Chebacco Creeke having Robert An- 


drewes land on the north west and a great l)are hill on the 
south west. 

Same date; John Perkins Jim"^ was granted a house lott con- 
taining an acre lying by the river, hauing Thomas Hardyes & 
Robert Andrewes house lotts on the south west side. 

Same date; Granted to John Cross likewise five and Twenty 
acres in the North Side the Towne haueini^ the land of Thomas 
Dudley Es(pi' on the North, and Robert Andrews toward the 

Richard Hoffield had a house lott lliHo beyond Mr. Hub- 
bards having the highway to Ohebacco on the South and an 
house lott of Robert Andrews on the east. 

In 1(>8(); Thomas Hardy had a house lot near the river ad- 
joining Robert Andrews and Thomas Howlett. 

In 1G85 ; Robert Andrews is allowed the sell wine by retail, 
"if he do not wittingly sell to such as abuse it by drunkenness.'"' 
1040 May 13 Robert Andros is granted to draw wine at Ips- 
witcli, with the conditions of the towne. 

We see from this that our ancestors, at that early day, clearly 
recognized the power to legislate, restraining the sale of intoxi- 
cating liquors, as a police regulation.

ison to Humprey Griffin of a dwelling house &c near the mill.

Will of Robert Andrews. 

The 1 of March 1()4:5. 

In y*" name of God Amen. I Robert Andrews of Ipswich in 
New England being of perfect understanding & memory doe 
make this my last will & testiment. 

Imprimis, I commend my soul into the hands of my mercifull 
Creator & Redeemer and I doe commit my body after my de- 
parture out of this world to be burye-d in seemly manner by my 
friends &c. 


Concerning my estate, Imprimis. I doe make my eldest son, 
John Andrews my executor. 

Item, I give unto my wife Elizabeth Andrews forty pounds, 
& to John Griffin the son of Humfrey Griffin sixteen pounds 
to be i)aid unto him when he shall be twenty one years <t if he 
shall dy before he comes to that age, it shall return to my two 
sonnes John & Thomas Andrews. 

Item, concerning my son Thomas Andrews my will is that he 
shall live with his brother John Andrews 3 years, two of which 
he shall be liel[)full to his brother John Andrews in his hus- 
bandry, .t the last of the 3 years he shall go to scole to recover 
his learning, & if he shall go to the University, or shall set liim- 
selfe upon some other way of living, his brother John shall al- 
low him ten pounds by the yeer for four yeers & then fifteen 
pounds by the yeer for two yeers succeeding after. 

Item, concerning the fourscore pounds, which is to be paid 
unto my son in law Franklyn's daughter, Elizabeth Frankly n, 
my will is that if she dy before the debt is due, it shall be thus 
disposed of, ten pounds of it shall go to my son Daniel Hovey's 
child, Daniel Hovey my grandchild, & the other seventy pounds 
shall be divided between ray two sonnes John & Thomas An- 
drews & if those my two sons should dy, then thirty pounds of 
it should be divided between my 3 kinsmen John, Thomas & 
Robert Bnrnam by equal portions k twenty more should go to 
Humfrey Griffins two other sonnes & the other twenty shall go 
to Daniel Hovey. 

And because my son John Andrews is yet under age. I doe 
commend him unto Thomas Howlett as his guardian untill he 
shall come of age.

This will was proved in y® court held at Ipswich '2(V'' of y" 
first month 1()44. 


There are some discrepancies in the dates given in the fore- 
going records, we present them as foun'd; taken together tliey 
refer unmistakably to the same Robert Andrews. 

His will, for so short a document, is bristling full of infor- 
mation, always a pleasure and gratification to the antiquarian. 

From the facts there stated, and so well corroborated in the 
other records and authorities mentioned, we have been able to 
fix with absolute certainty the identity of himself and his im- 
mediate descendants. 

It names his wife, Elizabeth, and his sons John and Thomas ; 
and his grandchildren, Elizabeth Franklyn and Daniel Hovey ; 
showing that he must have had daughters, naming their hus- 
bands. By this means we are able to identify them in other 
records and documents. We notice with pleasure his provision 
for the education of his son Thomas, and shall see later that it 
was turned to his advantage. 

The fact that he mentions John, son of Hum})hrey Griffin, 
as a legatee, strongly suggests that the legatee was a relative. 
Humphrey Griffin died at Ipswich, 8ei)tember 1(), 1()()2, leav- 
ing a widow, Elizabeth; his wife Joan died July 17, 11)57; pos- 
sibly the first wife may have been a kinswoman to Robert An- 
drews; a sister perhaps. He also mentions with certainty his 
nephews, John, Thomas and Robert Bundiam. 

Thomas Howlett, designated as the guardian of his son, John, 
may have been related, yet he does not so state. Howlett was 
one of the first settlers who went to Ipswich with Mr. Win- 
throp, and his name is freqiieutly mentioned in the early rec- 
ords, from which it appears that Andrews and Howlett resided 
near each other at Ipswich. 

Under the grants, 1()84, as taken oiit of " Y' Old Book," 
Given and Granted vnto Thomas Howlett two acres of meadow 
and two acres & half of marsh adjoining vnto that, laying be- 
tween the towne River & the laud of Will'" Sergaiits and John 
Nowmane vnto him his heires or Assigns. 

Also, same tlate: Giuen and Grnnted vnto Tlionias howlett 
six acres of land more or less in e([u;i] share with John maji- 


ning and others, lying vpon this neck the towne standeth, be- 
tween the land of John Gadge on the one side and Thomas 
Clark on the other, vnto his heires and Assigns. 

And his name is also mentioned same date, in grants to John 
Gadge and John Manning. 

Hammatt mentions Kobert Andrews" of Ipswich, as probably 
the son of our Robert'; he died about 1675; will dated De- 
cember 6, 1()73, proved March 2(), l()7r); by it he directs that 
his j)roperty be divided between his mother and his brothers 
John and Joseph, and appoints his brother (in law) Samuel 
Symonds, executor. 

I am very positive that Hammatt was mistaken about the re- 
lationship; indeed, the wills of these two men strongly indi- 
cate that they were not related as father and son. I am rather 
inclined to think that Robert" was the son of Robert and Grace 
Andrews of Boxford. 

We have been unable to ascertain tlie dates of birth, mar- 
riage or death of Robert Andrews'. 

His children, so far as positively known, and which are prob- 
ably all, were

doubtedly had looked on and wondered at the great anthesis,

70 JONATHAN ANDREWS,'' | 47 ] ( Willidm,* John,' John,' 
BoJ)cri.^) The history of Scarboro, Maine, says he 
came from Ipswich, Massachusetts, in 1732, and that 
none of the name preceded him there. That he proved 
a valuable addition to the young settlement, which was 
miich in need of just such men. Amos Ancb-ews is 
mentioned there a little later and was an active citizen 
in town and church affairs. It is thought he must have 
been a son of this Jonathan, as the descendants of the 
two families claim a connection. The history of Ips- 
wich records the dismissal from Second church, in Ips- 
wich, of Jonathan An(b-ews. and wife Sarah, to no to 
Scarboro, and the church record at the latter place say 
they were admitted to First C^ongregaticmal church there 
February 2o, L733. The I[)swicli records contain the 
entry of int. m. of Jonathan Andrews and Sarah Smith, 
December 1(5, 17 IS. He was a blacksmith. 

I am not certain about the parentage of this man, he may 
have been (Jonathan." 177], John:' WiUiant,* John,' John,'

Their children all born at Scarboro: 

71. Amos.

74. Nathan, baptised July 28, 1734. 

74. Sauah, baptised May 13, 1731), married Silvanus Scott 
October 20, 17 "37. 


75. SOLOMON ANDREWS/ [48] ( William; John; John; 
Roheri;) Born at Ipswich, August 8, 101)9. Int. of m. 
with Elizabeth Ingalls,* October 27, 172(3, both of Che- 
bacco, in Ipswich, says the record. 

Isaac S. Andrews' told the compiler of this work, about 1867, 
that he had seen and was acquainted with his grandfather, Sol- 
omon ; had visited him and his uncles. He said that his grand- 
father was a farmer ; that the maiden name of his wife was Har- 
per; perhaps he may have been mistaken in that respect; or 
perhaps Solomon was twice married, and Harper may have been 
the name of the second wife. It will be borne in mind that 
Isaac S. Andrews was born and lived in Lovell, and never lived 
in Massachusetts, yet he was a man of powerful memory. He 
mentioned all of his uncles except Isaac, but said nothing par- 
ticular about his uncle Solomon, who died in Massachusetts 
nearly thirty years before his birth. He said his uncle Ammi 
settled at Hillsboro, New Hampshire; his uncles Isaacher and 
Nehemiah, at Billerica, Massachusetts ; that his uncle Stephen 
was a sea captain and had a residence at Blue Hill, Maine, where 
he died; and Edmund settled at Carlisle, Massachusetts, who 
he represented as being a very eccentric person. I have been 
unable to iSnd any will made by Solomon Andrews'^ or any account 
of his estate, or of his death. Perhaps he may have died during 
the troublesome times of the Revolution, and the records con- 
cerning him neglected. He had at least three sons in the war. 

His children were: 

70. Solomon, b. September 0, 1727. ' 

77. Isaac, b. January 1>, 1729. 

78. Elizabeth, b. April 21, 1732. Int. of m. with Joseph 

Thompson, September 22, 1750. 

79. Stephen, b. November 2, 1734. 

80. Ammi, b. April 13, 1737. 

81. Nehemiah, b. June 5, 1739. 

82. Edmund, b. January 9, 1741.

117. CAPTAIN ABRAHAM ANDREWS," [84] [Solomon; 

William^ John; John^ Robert,^) born at Ipswich, 
Massachusetts, September 6. 1747. 

He was a farmer and lived at Billerica, or Concord, Massa- 
chusetts, at the breaking oiit of the Revolutionary war. 

His son, Isaac S. Andrews, in his lifetime spoke of his ser- 
vice in the war; of him being at Lexington and with Arnold's 
expedition to Quebec. It is supposed that he served several 
terms of enlistment. 

The Massachusetts archives show that more than one Abra- 
ham Andrews served in that war. 

Private Abraham Andrews in Captain Joshua Walker's com- 
pany ; Colonel David Green's 2d Reg' Foot at Lexington, April 
19, 1775. 

Lieutenant Abraham Andrews served in Captain Joshua 
AValker's company; Colonel Samuel Denny's Reg' from Octo- 
ber 19, 1779, to November 23, 1779. 


Adjutant Abraham Andrews '2d lleg' Militia, from Octol)er 19, 
1779, to >:ovember 28, 17711, 

The last two are the same, evidently, and in the oj)inion of 
the writer refer to our Captain Abraham Andrews. There is a 
discrepancy between the above and what he told his family 
about his rank at Lexington. His son stated, positively, that 
he held the rank of captain in the Revolution, and not from his 
service in the Militia after the war. He was, however, the first 
captain in the Militia in Lowell. 

His Grandson, William G. Andrews, now living at Exira, 
Audubon county. Iowa, recollects him and says he was a man 
little less than six feet high, with light com[)lexion and blue 

Another Grandson, Hon. Abraham Andrews Barker, now 
living at Ebensburg, Pennsylvania, writing of his grandfather 
says: "Captain Abraham Andrews, for whom I was named, 
lived, I think, in Billerica, as I have heard my mother talk so 
much about the place, and owned a farm; but just where it was 
— whether in Billerica or Concord —I cannot say. Mother told 
me he sold it and took it in Continental money, which proved 
worthless. Either mother or grandfather told me that when he 
left the army he took his pay for his services in the same mon- 
ey, and of course lost it all. That he paid twenty-five dollars 
for a breakfast. I can remember grandfather and see just how 
he looked, and remember somethings he told me; as he lived 
and died at my father's. I have forgotten how old I was. 
He died about 1828, which would make me about eight years 
old; I can remember well the day he died. Either him or my 
mother told me about him taking his gun and joining the men 
when the British soldiers started for Concord, and also of him 
being at Lexington and seeing the men that were killed and 
carried into the town house, but whether he had moved to 
Concord or still lived at Billerica I cannot say. After the war 
he had quite a family and was very poor, having sunk all he 
had in Continental money ; and as he could hardly live in Massa- 
chusetts he, with others, went to M;iine, then a part of Massa- 


chusetts ; encouragement had been given, for cheaper lands, 
and that they could raise good crops. Grandfather had one of 
the free lots of land containing one hundred acres. I have 
heard my mother tell all about it, and of their hardships. 
Grandfather was about five feet ten inches tall, stout and heav- 
ily built, having large heavy shoulders; I think William's 
description of him is correct. He was a cooper and did consid- 
erable in that way. I remember going into the shed where he 
worked and he played the cooper's march for me, and sat down 
and told me stories." 

Another grandson living at Denver, Colorado, George W. 
Andrews, Esip, writes thus of his ancestor: "As it may be of 
interest I relate some facts that I heard, when I was about eight 
years old. from my venerable grandfather, Abraham Andrews, 
on one of his ainiual visits at my father's home in Fryeburg, 
Maine. Grandfather's home, at that time, was in Lovell, Maine. 
His narrative of the event was about as follows : He said Major 
Pitcairn, a British officer, was sent out from Boston with five 
hundred 'Red Coats,' as he called them, to destroy some Colo- 
nial stores, some miles back of Lexington, which is about ten 
miles north-west from Boston, near where my grandfather lived. 

The news of the approach of the forces spread through the 
country like wild fire. As they had to pass through Lexing- 
ton — our Continental undisciplined soldiers hurriedly collected, 
a little after sunrise, on the village green, at Lexington, only 
about ninety in all, while Pitcairn was approaching with five 
hundred disciplined red coats. When the head of the British 
column reached the green Pitcarin's voice rang out in a com- 
manding tone: 'Disperse, ye rebels! ' and ordered his men to 
fire, which they did without halting. As soon as they had 
passed on our men gathered up eight dead (Jolonists and car- 
ried them into the meeting hoiise and laid tliein out on the seats, 
where the blood ran across the fioor. This was the first blood 
shed in the Revolutionary war. Pitcairn kept on his' way to 
destroy the stores, but before reaching his place of destina- 
tion, at about noon he halted at a tavern to rest and eat their 


The commaiuliiii; officer aiul statF wi«liinij to fare better, went 
into the Tavern, Pitcairn ordered the landlord to provide din- 
ner for them. On his infonnini; him that he could not, as he 
had not a single person besides himself about the house, he 
knocked the landlord down and then ordered him to set on the 
l)randy. Bv one o'clock i'. m. there had gathered on a rising 
piece of ground not f;ir fi'om this tavern, about three thousand 
Continentals all armccl, some with muskets, almost every kind 
of a shot gun then kiKjwn, also axes and pitchforks, others with 
clubs. Pitcairn seeing this great gathering so near gave up 
his further march t(Mlestroy the stores, and beat a hasty retreat, 
followed by the C*^ntinentals, more like a mob than regular sol- 
diers. On all W(Mit back over the same road, through Lexing- 
ton, the British red coats firing into the air as they ran. Grand- 
father said he saM' many a twig fall from th(^ tree tops, cut 
away by the bullets of the red coats. This retreat continiied 
over the same villatje gfreen where the eiorht Colonists were kill- 
ed in the morning, and for two or three miles on toward Bos- 
ton, until Pitcairn met reinforcements from Boston with two 
cannon ; then said grandfather, it was our turn to retreat, which 
we did, as far as the village green, where we made a stand and 
fought until night, when the British forces left for Boston. My 
grandfather was lieutenant of his company, but as the captain 
was absent, he had command of the company at the time; and 
he told us, when the battle was at its height, a cannon ball 
from the enemy came tearing thnnigh the cliuirh building near 
where his company were fighting; and seeing one of his men 
not using his gun as he should, took it from him and leveled it 
on a red coat. This red coat fell! and soon another red coat 
fell across the first one, and directly a third red coat fell across 
the two, thus three red coats lay in one pile! At night the 
battle ended as stated. 

As we have shown elsewhere, he was one of the first settlers 
of Lovell. 

He married first, Esther, daughter of Hon. Isaac Stearns,*

A very complete genealogy of the Steams family has been 
published by Dr. S. S. Stearns, of Washington, D. C. 

Esther seems to have been a favorite name in that family.

New Hampshire line, and was at Bunker Hill, Bennington, Sara- 
toga and Yorktown. She had a son l:)y first marriage named 
Isaac Carter, who died in infancy. There were no children by 
the last marriage. She also lies buried by the side of Captain

best known by the name of "Uncle Isaac," and will be remem- 
bered by his peculiar manner of speech, which was very slow, 
earnest and delivered in a sing-song tone. There are many 
funny stories told of his droll wit and aptness in repartee ; the 
first load of goods brought to Lovell for merchandise was 
hauled by him from Portland for "Squire'' Stephen Heald, of 
Lovell village; he had a glass decanter, a very useful vessel in 
its time, brought in that load of goods, now in the possession 
of his grandson, Isaac S. Andrews, of Atlantic, Iowa. We have 
elsewhere given credit for information received from him in 
this work; he died December 31, 1808, and is buried at Exira, 
Iowa; his wife, Sally, died December 12, 1840, aged 47 years.

was in the center with a front of about three-fourths of a mile, 
along which he built three lines of rifle pits, with Veach's divis-

seven days. In the assault, about sundown on April 9th, his 
two brigades, in a few minutes, carried the enemy's breast-

into camp near Mobile. On quitting Selma he received the 
following voluntary communication from Judge Byrd, a distin- 
guished citizen of Alabama: 

Selma, May 12, 18()5. 

Siii: — I desire to express in a more formal and enduring 
manner than I have done my appreciation of your kindness to 
me and my family, and as you are about to leave Selma, per- 
haps forever, to say to you that, so far as I am informed, our 
citizens appreciate your firmness, courtesy and integrity. While 
you have been true to your government you have shown us all 
the consideration and attention of fellow citizens, and I am sat- 
isfied that if a similar course is pursued by the authorities of 
our country the people of the South will be more benefi- 


ceiitly and ett'ectively restored to the Union and the Repiiblie 

than the}' have been by its victorious armies. Let me assure 

yoii, at })artin^, of my high regard and consideration, and 

indulge the hope that you will ever remember your stav here 

among the pleasant memories of the past. 

Yery truly, your ol)edient servant,

We have seen elsewhere in this work that John, Thomas and 
Robert Burnham, settled at Ipswich, Massachusetts, with their 
uncle, Robert Andrews, in 1635 ; they were sons of his sister, 
Mary, wife of Robert Burnham. The descendants of these men 
appear to have been numerous, and we find the name in the 
records of Iprwich, frequently, down to the time of the Revolu- 
tionary period. 

The Winthrop and Burnham house was built by John Win- 
throp, Jr., in 1683. It was the home of his family, and the 
birthplace of some of his children ; and to this home he brought 
Elizabeth Reade Winthrop, his second bride. The Burnhams 
possessed the house after the Winthrops migrated to Connecti- 
cut, and for 200 years it was their homestead, always retaining 
the name of " Governor's House."" 

JOHN BURNHAM ' was a soldier in the war against the 
Pequot Indians, for which service he received a grant from the 
town of eight acres of land, in 163U. He subscribed to the 
compensati(m of Major Denison in 1()48. He sold to Anthony 
Potter June 1. 1(»4H. a house lot, late of Humphrey Griffin, sit- 
uated near the water mill; also a hcmse lot containing three 
acres, lying next the house of Sergeant Jacob Burnham. He 
came into full communion with the (/hurch AuiJ^ust 12, 1674. 


JOHN BURNHAM,- son of John,' married Elizabeth Wells, 
June 9, IGC)'.). He was a tythin^ man in 1()77 and 1()95. In

A genealogy of the Stearns family has been compiled by Dr. 
Solomon Sergent Stearns, of Washington, D. C, showing the 
progenitors of the members of the Stearns family, mentioned in 
this work. Captain Abraham Andrews," [117] married Esther 
Stearns, daughter of Honorable Isaac Stearns, of Billerica, 
Massachusetts. Several of the descendants of her brother, 
Benjamin Stearns, and of her uncle, John Stearns, have inter- 
married with this branch of the Andrews family. It will be of 
interest to members of this branch of the family to have a con- 
venient reference of the line of their ancestors, which is here

nor Winthrop and Sir Richard Saltonstall. They settled at

HANNIBAL HAMLIN, of Bangor, Maine, Ex- Vice-Presi- 
dent of the United States, was descended from James and Anne 
Hamblen. His ancestors were: James,' James," Benjamin,'' 
Eleazer,* Eleazer,^ Cyrus,'' Hannibal,' (himself.) 


This work has given .all the descendants of Robert Andrew's,' 
of the name of Andrews, down to the fourth generation. Since 
that period it has been impossible, up to this time, to obtain 
and arrange all branches of the family in full, up to date; the 
necessary information has not been obtainable. As others, in 
the future, may desire to complete their family records, it is 
thought best to preserve, at this time, such extracts from the 
old records as will be of service for that purpose. A large mass 
of information has been obtained from the records of Salem and 
Ipswich, Massachusetts, which will be of value in completing 
the Genealogy, but so mingled with the records of other fami- 
lies, of the name, who were early settlers of that locality, that 
the compilers has been unable to arrange them with certainty. 
There were settlers at Ipswich, of the name of Andrews, oth- 
er than Robert Andrews,' and his descendants, and it has been 
a difficult task to identify them with certainty. That which 
was very doubtful has been omitted from the Genealogy prop- 
er. Some of the data to be hereafter given, no doubt, refers to 
descendants of Robert Andrews,' and the search for further 
information concerning the family history will be rewarded by 
following out the information here given: 

John Andrews, of Ipswich, was a soldier in the war against 
the Pequot Indians, in 1B89, and had eight acres of land grant-
