^^A 



DESIRE to know my own Doggett ancestry led me 
to begin a search of the records in 1876. 
I In the search I found branches of my own line who had 
<„ changed the spelling of the name to Daggett, while other 
branches had moved to distant parts of the country. 

In trying to find these branches I had correspondence and 
r gathered information of families who were descended fi'om 
^different immigrant ancestors. 

Wishing to know more of these families and their ances- 
. try, I began a thorough search of the early records. This 
search has occupied my spare moments from 1876 to the 
present time. The records of more than forty Massachu- 
setts towns have been examined ; the county records of 
^ C Suffolk, Norfolk, Plymouth, Bristol, Barnstable, Dukes, 
^Essex, Worcester, and Middlesex have each added some 
Vpoints to the record, while an examination of more than 
three hundred and fifty volumes at the State House, in 
Boston, and many books in public and private libraries, 
were among the methods used to gather what relates to our 
family in Massachusetts. 

I have also examined county, town, church, or private 
records in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Maine, New Hamp- 
shire, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, 
Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia ; have called on many 
members of the family in different parts of the country; 
have corresponded extensively, and have received more than 
twelve hundred letters in answer to my inquiries. 



iv PREFACE. 

By the kindness of correspondents and the returns of 
experts, whom I employed, many facts have been gathered 
regarding the family in England. 

Several rectors of churches in England vs'ere interested, and 
very kind in sending extracts fi'om their records. 

Mr. William H. Doggett, of Leighton Buzzard, Beds., and 
the late Edward G. Doggett, Esq., of Bristol, have added 
many facts to the family history. My thanks are also due 
to many in this countr}^ who have contributed to the records, 
but owing to the number, I will not mention them by name, 
knowing they will feel amply repaid by the knowledge that 
they have done their parts toward preserving the family 
records. 

Errors and omissions will be found in the compilation, but 
in many cases it is the fault of those who have made mis- 
takes in their returns or neglected to answer my repeated 
requests for full particulars. 

The amount of material having become so large, and so 
long a time having been devoted to its collection, 1 have 
thought best to now submit the history to my kinsmen, l)e- 
lieving the facts thus made known may lead to the correc- 
tion of errors and aid in bringing to light the points that are 
wanted to connect the several branches of the family.

DOGGETT-DAGGETT. 



DERIVATION AND ORTHOGRAPHY. 

The name " Doggett " seems quite distinct from "Duekett" and 
" although possibly all may be from the same root, 
and Duekett were often applied at different periods to the 
same individual in early times, and the name "Doggett" has been 
changed and continued as "Daggett" by people of the present day. 
The larger part of the family in America, whether Doggett or Daggett, 
must look for their ancestors to the Doggett family of England. 

The name "Doggett" is one of the oldest surnames. It seems to 
be a surname pure and simple. We do not find " de " prefixed to it 
from which to conclude it to be a name derived from the name of a 
place, as is so often the case with other surnames. Sir Walter Scott 
thought it a fit name for a Saxon, for he makes a Norman noble say : 
''Here thou Dogget- warder son of a Saxon wolf-hound" [The Be- 
trothed]. Many expressions of opinion have been made as to the 
derivation of the name. 

Lower, in his " Dictionary of Names," London, 1860, says : 
"Doggett is an old London name probably corrupted from 'Dow- 
gate,' one of the Roman gatewaj's of the city. Ferguson makes it a 
diminutive of the Icelandic ' Doggr ' and the English ' Dog,' but no 
such diminutive is found." 

Robert Ferguson, in his " Teutonic Name System applied to Fam- 
ily Names," London, 1.S64, under the heading "The Brute and its 
Attributes," says: "There are few names derived from the dog. 
Doggett, which I before classed under this head, I must now with- 
draw, as I think it belongs to the roots of Anglo-Saxon dugan, to be 
of use or value." 

As derived from the " Inner Man " we have from the Anglo-Saxon 
dugan ; Old High German ttigan, to be virtuous, good, honorable ; 
Anglo-Saxon thraw; Old High German dau, morals, behavior, — 
probably the following: 



2 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

Simple forms — English, "Tuggy," "Tuck," "Duck," etc. 
Diminutives — English, " Duckling." 
Compounds — English, "Duckett," " Doggett." 
Compouuds — French, " Duquet," " Douet," " Tugot," and 
many others. 

Many ancient endings, as "and" or " ead," prosperity, had 
"war," "hait," "hood," converge in modern names into "et." 

Prof. John Marshall Doggett, of Eichmoud, Va., formerly pro- 
fessor of languages in Vanderbilt University, has made a special study 
of the subject, and has announced his opinion that the name "Dog- 
gett" is derived from the Aryan word "Dok" or "Dog,"' meaning 
point or cut. 

From this word comes, 1st, the Greek "Ady-siA " (dogma, that is 
a point out " doctrine ") ; 2d, Doc-eo (originally pronounced hard 
Dok-eo) , that is, point out, show, teach ; Doc-umentum ; Duc-o dux 
(leader, guide, shower), from which is derived Doge (possibly Due- 
quet) ; 3d, Dig (that is, to cut in), from which comes Duglas, possibly 
Dagger and Dock (that is, cut, hence Docket), "dock-taUed," pos- 
sibly Dog; "Docket" Gallicized to Docquet; 4th, Dogger (or sharp 
cut-nosed fish). 

Hence, "' Dogget," equal or derived from docket (or dock-hand, 
that is, Docker)." 

Sir George Duckett, B.art., in his "Memoirs of the Family of 
Duket," called " Duehetiaua," published in Loudon, 1874, says: 
"The family of Ducket derives clearly from that of ' Duchet,' 
seated at the time of the Euglish Conquest in the Duchy of Burgundy. 
The surname of Duchet (Duket) is recorded in two of the Battle 
Abbey Rolls." 

The name is also found in the tenth year of the Conquest ; agaiu 
(as Duchet) iu the oldest roll uow extant next to Domesday, the 
great Roll of the Exchequer, 60 or 70 years after the Conquest, com- 
monly called the Great Roll, 1131 ; and it is recorded iu a very re- 
markable manner in the "Chronicles of the Abbey of St. Albans," 
A.D. 1119. 

A copious account of the Norman family of Duc6 is to be seen in 
the " Annales CivUes et Militaires du Pays d'Avranches." 

The name " Duc6 " is found as witness to two grants to Clerkenwell 
Nunnery, founded by Henry I., A.D. 1100; but that of Duchet is 
seen equally early, and the orthography of the name inclines us to 
accept this as most probably the original name. 

If at this early date, however, the Saxon pronunciation had not 
affected the oi-thography of the name, as clearly as in after times 
happened in the instances of Doket, Doget, Douket, Dokkyt, no better 



DERIVATION AND OETHOGRAPHY. 



proof could be adduced that Duket was oot the original name, 
than, perhaps, the earliest authentic meutiou we find of it in the person 
of one Herbert Duchet (or Ducket, as he is styled in the entry). The 
Herbert in question was living in 1119, and iu consequence of the in- 
cident recorded in the " Gesta Ahbatum S. Albani," he obtained the 
cognomen of Duket as an alterative of his previous name. From the 
tmie of the Conqueror to the reign of Henry VII., and from that 
again to the reign of Elizabeth, the name is found varied in different 
ways according as the Saxon pronunciation came iu time to prevail 
over the Norman and to reappear as the common language of the 
country.

Such appear at different epochs, the orthography of the name giving 
apparently twenty-two variations. 

At one period the name appears as " Doget." Under this last mode 
of spelling the name is found in Lincolnshire, Norfolk, and else- 
where, but (as also in the case of " Tuchet ") only a few and excep- 
tional instances. 

Sir D. Hardy, on the orthographical variations of proper names of 
persons and the arbitrary mode of spelling iu ancient times, often 
regulated by etymology, sound, or abbreviations, remarks that names 
were Latinized or Gallicized, whenever it was possible to do so, ac- 
cording to the fancy of the scribe, one document frequently exhibit- 
ing material variations in the spelling of the same name, and to such a 
degree that a person would scarcely be able to recognize the modern 
name. The conclusion, therefore, is that the fault rested with the 
scribe alone, whether writing from oral instruction or copying from 
the original writ. 

Nichols, in reviewing " Duchetiana," says the name was evidently 
personal, not local, and that it is derived from a race named Duchet 
(French), seated before the Norman Conquest in the Duchy of 
Burgundy. 

Even as lately as 1601 there appears to be some confusion as 
regards "Dogett" and "Ducket," for in Samuel Toddes' "Pedi- 
grees of English Families " of that date, wherein what are evidently 
the arms of the early Duckett family, he gives the name of Dogett, 
and all thi-ough the pedigree he continues this style. There is noth- 
ing, however, elsewhere to support the idea that any other of the 
Dogett family bore such arms or married into the families mentioned 



4 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

in the pedigree. Moreover, Sir George Duckett shows that the arms 
were borne by the Duckett family, and accounts for Mr. Toddes' 
reading by the many forms of orthography. 

William Daggett, Esq,, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, writing of the deri- 
vation of the name of Daggett, says, his father " seemed to think it 
meant ' a little Dagger,' but ou the other hand I have been told it is a 
Scandinavian (Danish) word meaning 'the dawn of day.' Lower 
says Dagger is a Scottish surname, and it may be that Daggett is a 
diminutive derived therefrom. I cannot, however, trace any part of 
my family to North Britain." 



THE FAMILY COATS OF ARMS. 

The system of Heraldry can be traced to the beginning of the thir- 
teenth century. The first assumer or grantee of a coat of arms took 
that as his own distinguishing mark. It became hereditary in his 
own fjimUy, and whoever afterward uses it proclaims himself a lineal 
descendant from the person who first assumed it. 

In the middle of the reign of Queen Elizabeth [1558-1603] the 
only arms for the family are reported as those used by a family of 
the name "Dogget" or "Doggett;" also spelled "Dogate" and 
"Doget." 

"It is a maxim with the heralds that the more simple a coat of 
arms, the more ancient it is," and it is a maxim that eminently applies 
to the arms of Doggett. 

1. Dogate — Erm. on a bend sa. — three leopards' heads, ar- 

gent. 

2. Doget [Kent] — Erm. — on a bend sa. — three talbots' heads, 

erased or [another ar.]. 
Crest — on a chapeau a bull collared and thereto a 
bell pendant, proper. 

3. Doget [John Doget, merchant, Loudon] — Two greyhounds 

combatant, or, collared ar., bell pendant. 
Crest — Unicorn's head, or. 
•t. Dogget [Honing, Serborue, and "Wronger — Co. Norfolk] — 
Gu — two greyhounds salient, combatant, or — 
collared sa. 
Crest — a lion's head gorged with a mural coronet, 
sable. 
6. Doggett [Norfolk] — Gules — two greyhounds combatant, ar- 
gent, collared or. 



THE FAMILY COATS OF ARMS. 5 

6. DoGGETT — Sable — two greyhounds combatant, or. 

7. DoGGETT — Same as Doget, first named. 

8. Daggett — Ar. — two greyhounds in full course, gules, col- 

lared, or. 

9. Daggett — Or — on a chief azure, three crescents of the first. 

Crest — an eagle displayed charged with a bezant, 
gules. 

10. Daggett [Roxby & Pickhill — Yorkshire] — Or — on a chief 

aziu'e, three crescents. 

1 1 . Daggett [Edinburgh] — Same as last. 

Crest — a demi-talbot, sable-collared. 

The " Duckett " coat of arms and crests are all entu-ely different 
from that of Doggett of Norfolk or Kent. 

The greyhound which figures so prominently on the arms of ' ' Dog- 
gett " is an animal which was not allowed to be possessed by any save 
the princes and nobles until only within a few years, comparatively 
speaking. Upon the smooth surface of the monuments that adorn 
the broad plains of Egypt, erected 1200 B.C., we find chiselled by the 
side of his royal master the form of the greyhound, which from that 
time to this the sportsmen of the world have associated with them in 
the pursuit of game. The term "greyhound" is a corruption of the 
word "gazehound," signifying that it pm-sues its game by sight and 
not by scent. In ancient Greece and Rome he was the companion of 
the nobles, and no household was considered complete in all its 
appointments without him. 

In such high esteem was this dog held by the nobles that the kill- 
ing or even maiming of one was felony punishable with death. 

The use of the greyhound is coursing. The great event in cours- 
ing circles in England is the "Waterloo Cup," valued at £500, which 
is run for at Altcar, near Liverpool, annually. 

Thomas, Duke of Norfolk, in Queen Elizabeth's reign, was the first 
to compUe a set of rules governing coursing, whereby points of merit 
earned in the race could be properly awarded. Coursing has made 
the greyhound <7te dog of the "British Isles." The greyhound signi- 
fies swiftness, vigilance, fidelity. 

A talbot is a kind of hound with a large snout and large, thick, 
hanging ears. 

The crescent is frequently used to distinguish the coat armor of a 
second brother or junior family from that of the principal branch.

DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY 



JOHN DAGGETT, OF PICKHILL, YORKSfflRE, AND 
HIS DESCENDANTS. 

Arms : Three crescents or, chief azure, field argent. 
Crest : An eagle displayed gules, charged with a bezant. 
Motto: Na Desperandum. [Granted 1730.] 

" These arms were granted to our ancestor in the twelfth century. 
He was in the wars of the Crusades, and in one engagement captured 
a prince of the Royal House opposed to him. 

"This prince was ransomed for money, which is signified by the 
Eagle beiog displayed and having the ' bezant ' on its heart. The 
Eagle is the Royal sign; the bezant on the heart means his life 
redeemed for gold. (The bezant was the gold coin of Byzantium, 
now Constantinople.) 

" The three crescents denote three engagements during the wars. 
These crescents are on a pale blue engrailed ground, the shield is 
white, the motto ' Nil Desperandum,' or ' Never despair.' No family 
in England has a more honorable or ancient origin." [Letter of 
William C. Daggett to Thomas Daggett, dated December 8, 1880.] 

"From the earliest time to which I have been able to trace them 
(this branch), they have been a purely Yorkshu-e Family, and their 
name has been spelt either Daggett or Dagget, the former almost 
universally. T do not think they were akin to the Doggetts of East 
Anglia." [William Daggett, Esq., of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.]

of the Cloptons in that of Melford in Suffollv [1C38]."

WILLIAM DOGGETT, OF BOXFORD. 15 

In the " Life aud Letters of .Tolm Wiuthrop," Boston, 1864, is the 
account of the death-bed of Thomasiue Cloptou, wife of John Wiu- 
throp and sister of Margaret Cloptou, who married Thomas Doggett. 
"It may help to fix in our mind the exact period at which it was 
written if we remember that Shakspeare died the same year [1616] 
at Stratford-upon-Avon, where he had lived in a house [New Place] 
which had been built by Sir Hugh Clopton." In this account, as she 
feels she is approaching the end she calls for her sisters : "Then she 
called for her sister Margerye whom she exhorted to serve God and 
take heede of pride and to have care in hir matchinge that she looked 
not at riches and worldly respects but at the feare of God for that 
would bringe hir comfort at hir death although she should meet with 
many afflictions." 

In the Collections of the Mass. Hist. Society, vol. 1, page 179, is a 
letter of Thomas Dogett to John Winthrop : 

" To the Right Wor" and his very loving brother Mr. John Wintlirop, Esq., at 
his house in Groton. dd 

" Sr — I liuinblie thanke you f or yo' loue towards me in all things, but es-

"I have been bidden 1800 '' for it by 2 or 3, but my vnckle thinks it to be

is the following regarding John Dogett : 

"July 25, 1603 Rob' Surrey was maried to John Dogetts maide 
Thomasin Hubbard. 

" 1604 the xij* of Aprill Mr Clop ton and Mr Dogett made an 
awarde between me and Adam Wyuthrop my nephew. 

" 1606 The second of March being Sunday about vij of the clocke 
in the evenyuge the goodwyfe Dogett died. 

" 1609 The first day of Novembre John Rawlinge kept a feast at 
his nue house where Mr Thoms Tilney Mr Dogett and diu'' others 
dined." 

That John Doget was a tenant of the Manor of Groton appears in 
the assignment of the Lordship to John Winthrop by Adam, his father.

was called to the throne in l.'iSS. It is conjectured that this tree 
must have been in existence before the Christian era. The oak in 
1820 was seventy feet in circumference at the extremity of the roots. 
The trunk is completely hollow, and the inside presenting an appear- 
auce resembling the rugged masonry befitting a Druidical temple. 

Over the doorway entrance is placed by the late Mr. Doggett, 
many years the respected tenant of the surrounding farm, a brass 
plate with an inscription soliciting from visitors to the oak douations 
for the Bible Society :

Which still survives through many a stormy day, 
Deposit here your mite with willing hands, 

To spread in foreign climes, through foreign lands,

Thomas A. Doggett was first dog-boy to Lord Essex, Cassiobury 
Park, Herts., from whence he was employed under his brother "William, 
who was head park ranger to Lord Clarendon, Grove Park, Watford. 
Here he remained until he was fourteen years old, when he was ap- 
prenticed to a carpenter and joiner, with whom he remained six 
years. 



WILLIAJM DOGGETT, OF HERTFORDSHIRE. 37 

At this time, 1815, he became head park ranger to Lord Claren- 
don, taking the position made vacant by the death of his elder brother. 

On the death of Lord Clarendon he resigned his position, and fol- 
lowed his trade as carpenter to Lord Ebery, Moor Park, Rickemans- 
worth, Herts., in which occupation he remained until his death in 1869. 

348. William Doggett ' {TJio^nas A.^) resides London; married. 
Issue : 

353. i. Frederick William Doggett.' 

354. ii. George Woodbkidge Doggett.' 

355. iii. William Harry Doggett.' 

356. It. Montague Doggett.' 

357. T. Daughter Doggett.^ 

358. vi. Daughter Doggett.' 

William Doggett began his life as dog-boy under his father, and 
then went into the stables of Mr. Peter Chutterbuck, New House, 
Herts. 

On June 20, 1842, he walked to London and engaged himself as 
groom to the family of Mrs. Margetson, of Peckham Rye. 

From there he soon went into the sei"vice of her son, a Bermondsey 
leather manufacturer, and at his suggestion, in 1850, Mr. Doggett 
established himself as a leather stripper and manufacturer on 
Baalzephon, now Weston street. 

The great success which has attended his efforts and the respect in 
which he is held may be seen by an article which appeared in the 
" Leather Trades Review " regarding the completion of his new ware- 
house, in 1878. 

As an illustration of the manner in which individual energy and 
enterprise may affect the character and prospects of an entire industry, 
•the business of Mr. Doggett is referred to, as almost wholly 
monopolizing the business of stripping, which formerly occupied 
several small establishments. Mr. Doggett is mentioned as one of 
the best known and respected members of the metropolitan leather 
trades. 

The success achieved by him is the more remarkable and en- 
couraging by reason of the same having been self -acquired. Nothing 
is impossible to those who possess strong wills. 

The building just completed (1878) stands as a monument to his 
indomitable skill and energy.

THOMAS DOGGETT, OF DUBLIX, lEELAXD. 

637. Thomas Doggett, born Dublin, Ireland;' died Eltham, 
Kent, England, September •22, 1721 ; married, first, before 1682, 
Mar}'; she died 1712; married, second, -. 

Thomas Doggett was born in Castle street, Dublin, Ireland, and 
made his first theatrical attempt on the stage of that metropolis, but 
does not appear to have achieved any great success there. 

He strolled the provinces before his talents procured him a fore- 
most position upon the London stage, where he made his appearance 
in 1691. 

He has been described as a' "little lively sprack man" who 
" dressed neat and something fine, in a plain cloth coat and a bro- 
caded waistcoat." 

His name has been traced into the thirteenth century, when one 
Gilbertus Dogget is mentioned in connection with an unpublished 
"Pipe Roll" of the year 1261. (Search has been made in London 
for this roll, but without success.) 

Anthony Aston says he " was the most faithful and pleasing actor 
that ever was," and " the best face-painter and gesticulator." 

" He was the most original observer of nature of all his contempo- 
raries," says Gibber. 

He could paint his face to represent seventy, eighty, or ninety 
years of age. Sir Godfrey Kneller told him one day that he excelled 
him in painting ; for that he could only copy nature from the original 
before him, but that he (Doggett) could vary them at jjleasure and 
yet keep a close likeness. 

Aston says: "In behavior he was modest, cheerful, and complai- 
sant; he sang in company very agreeably, and in public very comi- 
cally, and he danced the Cheshire Round full as well as the fam'd 
Captain George, but with much more nature and nimbleness." 

The same old writer says: "I have had the pleasure of his con- 
versation for one year, when I travelled with him in his strolling 
company, and found him a man of very good sense, but illiterate ; 



62 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

for he wrote me word thus : ' Sii', I will give you a hole iustead of half 
share.' While I ti-avelled with hmi each sharer kept his horse and 
was everywhere respected as a gentleman." 

Dogget made his first appearance in London, after his prosperous 
career as a stroller, in Bartholomew Fair ; and we append a copy of 
the bill announcing it : 

At Parke's and Dogget's Booth, 

near Hosier Lane End, during the time of

Will be presented a new Droll, called 

Fryar Bacon : or the Couxtry Justice^ 

With the Humours of Toll Free, the Miller and his son Ralph

With variety of Scenes, Machinery, Songs and Dances. 

ViVAT Rex ICOl. 

In the year following he made a great hit as Solon in D'Urfey's 
comedy of the " Marriage Hater Matched." The " Spectator," in a 
paper which denounces ' ' the intolerable folly and confidence of 
players" in " putting in words of their own," calls them " savages, 
who want all manner of regard and deference to the rest of man- 
kind, come only to show themselves, without any other purpose than 
that of letting us know they despise us," and speaks of the acting of 
Doggett, who scorned "gagging," in the highest terms, saying: 
"There is something so miraculously pleasant in Doggett's acting, 
the awkward triumph and comic sorrow of Hob in different cii-cum- 
stances, that I shall not be able to stay away whenever it is acted." 

The writer, Sir Kichard Steel, adds his regret that the audience 
do not recognize the refiued subtilty of the actor's execution and con- 
ception, but merely the coarse horse-play of his part. 

His manuer, though borrowed from none, frequently served as 
model to many ; and he possessed that peculiar art which so very few 
performers are masters of, namely, the arriving at the perfectly 
ridiculous without stepping into the least impropriety to attain it. 

As a writer Mr. Dogget has left behind him only one comedy, 
which has not been performed in its original state for many years, 
entitled "The Country Wake" (1696). It has been altered, how- 
ever, into a ballad farce, which has frequently made its appearance 
under the title of " Flora " or " Hob in the Well." 

Dogget was joint manager of Druiy Lane Theatre, in conjunction 
with Colley Gibber and Robert Wilks. In 1697 Dogget, having some 
cause of complaint against the patentee of Drury Lane Theatre, 
threw up his engagement and went to Norwich. 

In those days the power of the Lord Chamberlain over theatres and 
actors was without limit, as may be gleaned from the following story : 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF DUBLIN. 6^ 

Powell, the actor, beiug discontented with his position at Drury Lane, 
accepted an engagement at the Duke's Theatre, in Lincoln's-Inn 
Fields, where Betterton was one of his lordship's personal friends and 
favorites. Shortly after, he determined to return to his old post at 
Drury Lane, and did so, when the Lord Chamberlain sent a 
" messenger " to seize and convey him to prison ; and he was confined 
for two days in the Porter's Lodge. As with Powell so with Dogget. 
The patentee complained and a messenger was despatched to Nor- 
wich, who there seized Dogget and brought him to London. The 
actor, proud to suffer in the cause of liberty, was not at all intimi- 
dated, but went»>cheerfiilly with the officer ; and finding his expenses 
were to be paid took care to live well on the road, calling for the best 
at every inn they alighted at. Arriving in town he appealed from 
the Chamberlain to the Lord Chief Justice for his habeas corpus ; 
and, aided by clever legal advice, fought the cause of the players 
against the Lord Chamberlain with such effect, that he not only 
secm-ed his own liberty, but brought censure down upon the head of 
the capricious tyrant by whom both he and Powell were oppressed. 

Dogget played Shylock to the great Bettertou's Bassauio. He 
always acted Shylock as a ferociously comic character. 

It may be remembered that Dogget was manager when, Colley 
Cibber ha\'iug given him offence, he fined him five shillings, and ou 
being informed by the treasurer that Colley was but an apprentice, not 
yet in receipt of a salary, he replied, ' ' Then put him down for ten 
shillings a week and forfeit him five," — an arrangement which gave 
young Colley no small satisfaction and delight. 

Congreve discerned Dogget's talents, and wrote for him Fondle- 
wife in the "Old Bachelor," Sii- Paul Pliant in the "Double 
Dealer," and the very different part of Ben in "Love for Love." 

He continued a joint manager with WOks & Cibber of the Drury 
Lane Theatre until 1712, when he, being disgusted at Mr. Booth's 
being forced on them as a sharer in the management, threw up his 
part in the property of the theatre, though it was looked on to have 
been worth a thousand pounds per annum. 

His great passion was stock-jobbing, and no man was better known 
upon "'Change," for every moment he could spare from his pro- 
fessional duties was passed there. He was obstinate and testy, and 
impatient of crosses and contradiction. 

Dogget succeeded in saving a fortune sufficient to make him in easy 
cii'cumstances, and after the death of his first wife he married a lady 
with a well-stocked purse. He then devoted himself to politics, and 
became a " Whig." 

He was a great friend of Steel and of Addison, and frequented the 
great coffee-houses of that day. 



64 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

He became a member of the Fishmongers' Company, and iu loyalty 
and gratitude, being a "Whig up to the head and ears," he gave a 
waterman's coat and silver badge to be rowed for, in honor and com- 
memoration of the accession of King George I. to the thi-one. 
The date of this first contest was 1715. 

As a lasting compliment to royalty as exemplified iu the Han- 
overian succession, he made arrangements in his will for a continuance 
forever of this annual contest. ' ' Ten pounds to be laid out pro- 
viding a waterman's coat of cloth (orange color) of the value of 
eighteen shillings, with a silver badge of the value of five pounds, 
upon which shall be the impress of a white horse in such manner as 
was used by Mr. Dogget in his lifetime, round the plate there shall 
be, in fau- letters, these words, ' The gift of Thomas Dogget, the 
famous comedian.' " The prize was to be contested for by six young 
watermen, who were not to have exceeded the time of their ap- 
prenticeship by twelve mouths, and the claimants were to start off 
upon a given signal at the time of the tide, when the cuiTeut was 
strongest against them, over a com-se of about five miles in distance 
from the Old Swan at Loudon Bridge to the White Swan at Chelsea. 
The Fishmonger Company's barge-master, resplendent iu a cocked 
hat and the livery of the company, officiated as umpu-e, aud was 
shown up in a cutter mauned by watermen, the majority of whom 
were coat-aud-badge winners of previous years. 

The following is the present [1879] value of the prizes for Dog- 
gett's coat and badge :

Charles Dibdiu was so amused with the sight of the contest for 
Dogget's prize that in 1774 he brought out at the Haymarket Theatre 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF DUBLIN. 65 

a ballad opera entitled "The Watermau; or, The First of August," 
the hero of which is Tom Tug, who sings the songs commeueiug, 
" And did you never hear tell of a jolly j'ouug watermau," and 
"Then farewell, my trim-built wherry." 

A waterman who was inclined to be poetical wrote regarding the 
race: 

" Let your oars like lightning flog it, 
Up tlie Tliames as swiftly jog it, 
An you'd win thie prize of Doggett 
The Glory of the river. 

"Benilin! bowing; strainin; rowin ; 
Perhaps the wind in fury blowin ; 
Or tlie tide again you flowin ; 
The Coat .*!; Badge for ever." 

The race, of course, is an historical one, and, to a certain degree, 
is but second to the Oxford and Cambridge contest for supremacy. 
The men, we need scarcely add, are socially wide apart. 

An interesting reminder of the first wife of the comedian is a very 
curious quarto book MS. (British Museum. Add MS. 27,466-203- 
613), the title-page of which is as follows: "Mary Doggett. Her 
Book of Receits, 1682." The greater part is very beautifully 
written.

DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY IN 
AMERICA. 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 

FIRST GENERATION. 

679. John Doggett ' (sometimes spelled with one " t," also at 
times one "g"); bom England; removed to New England with 
Governor Winthrop, 1630; died Plymouth, Mass., May (between 
17th and 26th), 1673; married 1st (date, place, and to whom not 
found) ; married 2d, Plymouth, Mass., August 29, 1667, Bathsheba 
Pratt, widow. 

Issue : 

680. i. John Doggett,- born Euglan.l (?), about 1626. 

i;81. ii. Thomas Doggett,^ born Watertown, Mass. (?), about 1630. 

682. iii. Joseph Doggett,' born Watertown, Mass. (?), about 1634. 

683. iv. Elizabeth Doggett,- l)orn Watertown, Mass. (?) about 1638; married 

Jeremiah Wliitton. Mr. Whitton bought land in Tisbury of Joseph 
Daggett, .Jan. 28, 1701. [Dukes Deeds, 1-193.] 
6S4. V. Hepzibah Doggett,' born Watertown, Mass. (?), 1643. 

Of the parentage and date of birth of John Doggett no positive 
proof has been found. 

The fact that he came to America with Wiuthrop, and that Dog- 
getts resided at Groton, from whence Wiuthrop came, would naturally 
lead us to follow out the history of the family there to see if John 
Doggett might not be one of tliem. In this. search Martha Doggett 
(No. 73), of Groton, who married Giles Fu'min, is found to have 
come to America with Winthrop, while in the adjoining parish of 
Boxford the Doggetts and Winthrops were connected by the marriage 
of Thomas Doggett and Margaret Clopton. 

Of the Groton Doggetts named John, those of suitable age to have 
come to America in 1630 can all be placed, but not so with the Box- 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 71 

ford Doggetts ; for among them we have John, baptized November 4, 
1602 (No. 58), of whom the parish records give no further information, 
and it is possible that he is the one who joined in the " Great Emi- 
gration " in 1630. To describe this emigration, it is necessary to 
have a general idea of the movements which led to the planting of the 
Colony of Massachusetts Bay, in which John Doggett was one of the 
pioneers. 

In March, 1628, the Plymouth Company sold to a company of six 
gentlemen in England the territory extending from a line three mOes 
north of Merrimae river to one three miles south of Charles river, 
and from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean. These gentlemen, with 
others who became associated with them, obtained a charter for 
their- company, which was called the " Massachusetts Bay Company," 
and in June, 1628, sent over a company of emigrants, who landed at 
Salem, and commenced the settlement of that ancient town. 

In July, 1620, it was proposed to transfer the government of the 
plantation from England to the colony, ' ' to those that shall inhabit 
there." 

On August 29 it was determined by a vote that the " government 
patent should be settled in New England," and on the 19th of 
October John Winthrop was chosen governor for New England. 
John Winthrop was then in his forty-first year, having been born in 
Edwardston, near Groton, in Suffolk, on the 12th day of January, 
1585. 

The considerations which induced Winthrop and the others to 
come over to New England were of no mere private or personal 
character. They had relation to the condition of England at that 
day, its social, moral, religious, and political condition. 

The spreading of the gospel and the conversion of the heathen 
were foremost in the contemplation of the New England fathers. 

Seventeen emigrant ships left England in the year 1630, of which 
fourteen saUed before the 1st of June. On the 8th of April four 
ships, the " Arbella," the "Jewell," the "Ambrose," and the 
"Talbot," sailed from the Isle of AVight, bringing the governor 
and others who afterward held prominent places in the early his- 
tory of the colony. 

The passengers who arrived in these ships were not satisfied with 
Salem, and soon after landing went, on the 17th of June, to select 
a place for settlement. Having selected the peninsula of Charles- 
town for that purpose, they returned to Salem, and as soon as 
preparations could be made the fleet proceeded from Salem to 
Charlestown. 

Soon after the removal of the emigrants from Salem to Charles- 
town, a large portion of them, with Sir Richard Saltoustall as their 



72 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

leader, accompauied by Eev. George Phillips as their pastor, pro- 
ceeded about four miles up Charles river and commenced a settle- 
ment, at first sometimes called Sir Eichard Saltoustall's plantation, 
but soon after by the court named Watertown. The exact date of 
the settlement of Watertown is not known, but it was probably 
befoi-e the middle of July, 1630. 

Bond, in his history of Watertown, says "that it is almost cer- 
tain that for the first four years Watertown was the most populous 
town in the colony, and it is not improbable that it continued so for 
fifteen or twenty years." 

As a full list of those who made up the " Great Emigration," or of 
those who accompauied Sir Richard Saltonstall to Watertown, is not 
known, we must infer from the records still in existence as to who 
took part in these movements. From such evidence Savage and 
other well-known antiquarians all agree that John Doggett came in 
the same fleet with Winthrop, arriving in Salem sometime between 
June 12 and July 2, 1630, according to which of the four vessels 
brought him to New England. He removed with Sir Richard Salton- 
staU, and was one of the earliest settlers of Watertown. 

Watertown was more remote from the bay than either of the other 
plantations begun that year, and was the first of the inland towns. 
It was, however, upon the tide-water of Charles river, which was 
there navigable for only small vessels. As the company of planters 
who first went there was large, and as they were not compacted into a 
village or dense population, like other early plantations, they must 
have been scattered over a very considerable extent of territory. 

The homestall of Su- Richard was situated on Charles river, within 
that strip of territory which was taken from Watertown and annexed 
to Cambridge in 1754, and was about a mile from the site of Harvard 
College. Between the homestall of Sir Richard and the New Town 
(Cambridge) line there was only one intervening lot, which belonged 
to John Doggett and contained thirteen acres. This lot he sold to 
Thomas Brigham in 1637, and it may have been his homestall from 
his settlement there in 1630 to 1637, although I am inclined to think 
his " homestall " during his residence in Watertown was the fifteen- 
acre lot bounded north and west by the (Fresh) pond and Nicholas 
Busby, south by highway, east by W. Paine, and probably embracing 
the lot of the Fresh Pond Hotel. 

The records of Watertown do not show that John Doggett took any 
prominent part in the affairs of the town during the time he made it 
his residence, as his name does not occur on the town records which 
have been preserved. 

October 19, 1630, John Doggett applied to be made " freeman," and 
on May 18, 1631, he took the oath. [Col. Records, Vol. 1, pp. 62-3.] 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 73 

In order for such admission, it was necessary to be a church mem- 
ber, and for this reason there were some men holding respectable 
social positions who never were thus admitted, or not until advanced 
age. It was not necessary, however, to be a church member or a 
freeman in order to hold office in the town, or appointments from the 
court. This could be done by taking the oath of fidelity. 

The first church of Watertown was organized July 28, 1630, and 
next after that of Salem is the oldest in the Colony of Massachusetts 
Bay. Rev. George Phillips was the pastor until his death, which 
occurred July 1', 1644. 

After the small lots, the earliest grants by the freemen, July 25, 
1636, were called the Great Dividend, and the fourth Great Dividend 
began at the small lots and was bounded north by Cambridge line. 
Of these. No. 12 fell to John Doggett and contained thii'ty acres, 
which was afterward bought by Richard Wait. 

Another grant made 163f shows among those who received land 
in the Further Plain (in later times called Waltham Plain) , bounded 
south by Charles river, north by the Great Dividends, the name John 
Doggett, six acres, which was afterward bought by R. Wait. 

In a volume of the Town Record, containing the schedule of 
possessions, is a list of grantees of the town plot, of which John 
Doggett had six acres, recorded in the division dated April 9, 1638. 
Pequusset Meadow was di\dded into numerous small lots, of which 
J. Doggett had two acres, which was afterward bought by John 
Flemming. 

Thus during his residence in Watertown John Doggett gradually 
increased his landed possessions, and was doubtless busily engaged 
in agricultural pursuits. 

Among his fellow-townsmen with whom he became associated was 
Mr. Thomas Mayhew, who probably arrived in 1631. For the en- 
suing thirteen years, it appears by the Colonial Records that few, if 
any, other persons so often received important appointments from 
the General Court as Thomas Mayhew. 

He built the first bridge over Charles river ; was temporarily pro- 
prietor of the mill, of the fishing-weu-s, of the Oldham farm, and of 
the Bradstreet farm, in Cambridge Village (now Newton). 

October 10, 1641, James Forett, agent of the Earl of Sterling, 
granted to Thomas Mayhew, of Watertown, merchant, and to 
Thomas Mayhew, his son, Nantucket and two small islands adjacent ; 
and on the 23d of the same month he granted to them Martha's 
Vineyard and the Elizabeth Islands. 

The Government Mayhew shall set up shall be such as is now established in 
the Massachusetts, aforesaiil and to enjoy as much privilege touching their 
plantg inhabiting and enjoying of all and every part of the premises, as by the 
patent to the patentees of Massachusetts.

The Mayhews having received grants of these ishinds proceeded to 
arrange for their settlement, by sharing with several others the 
privileges granted to them. Among theii- fellow-townsmen of 
Watertown who became interested in the project was John Doggett, 
as appears in the following record : 

Whereas Thomas Mayhew sen and Thomas Mayhew Jr, have granted to 
them by James Forett Marthas Vineyard and Elizabeth Isles, 

This is to certify, that we, Thomas and Thomas 2"'', do hereby grant unto 
Jolin Doggett, Daniel Pierce, and Richard Beers and John SmUh and Francis 
Smith, with ourselves, to make choice for the Present of a large Town, upon the 
same terms with us and equal possession administration of all that shall present 
themselves to come to live upon any part of the whole grant of all the Islands 
and we grant also to them and their associates with us, to receive another town- 
ship for posterity upon the same terms as we have from the Grantees.

The Vineyard, called in early records Martin's ^'iueyard, is nine- 
teen miles long and, upon an average, five miles broad. It is gen- 
erally level, though in the northern and western parts the land rises 
into hills of two hundred and fifty feet above the adjacent country. 
There is a plain in the southern part, upon which Edgartown is 
situated, eight miles in length and five or six in breadth, and it is the 
site selected " for the Present of a large Town," to which was given 
the name of Edgartown. The point of the Vineyard nearest Boston 
is but little over eighty miles. 

Dr. Freeman, when writing of the Vineyard, says that " Not less 
than three thousand Indians, it has been generally estimated, were 
on the island when it was entered by Mayhew." " Like the other 
savages of New England, they were in a low state of civilization ; 
and they had attained few of the arts which contribute to tlie com- 
fort of human life." They were, however, a hospitable and tractable 
people, and among them the younger Mr. Mayhew attempted to intro- 
duce the gospel. Several English families began a settlement and 
gathered a church as early as 1641, of which Thomas Mayhew, Jr., 
was pastor. 

" The savages received Mr. Mayhew with kindness, and with 
readiness listened to his exhortations. The wonderful progress which 
the Christian religion, through the zeal of this eminent evangelist ;iiul 
his worthy successors, made in Martha's Vineyard surprised and 
delighted the pious of that age." "The Indians were converted to 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 75 

the Christian faith, and attempts were made to reduce them to a state 
of civilization." 

Thomas Mayhew, Sr., and John Doggett still continued to reside 
at Watertown, while the younger Mr. Mayhew began his work and 
the settlement of the island in 1641. The following year (1642) 
John Doggett takes the next step toward removing to the island, as 
appears in the following grant: 

We do hereby grant, unto .JoHX Dogget of Watertown and to his heirs and 
assigns forever, twi-nty acres of land upon the point beginning at the great 
stone next to ray lot and twenty acres of meadow and also Five hundred acres 
of land for a farm he have liberty to take up, wherever he the said John Dogget 
wishes only provided lie take not up his farm -within three miles of the spring 
that is by the harbor in my lot aforesaid before I, that is Thomas Mayhew, the 
elder, have made choice of twenty acres of meadow and a farm of Five hundred 
acres for myself, the which first choice not being made within one year, ensuing 
the date hereof, then the said John Dogget have liberty to choose for himself.

[Dukes Deeds, 1-189.] 

It does not appear that John Doggett moved directly to the Vine- 
yard, but instead made his home for a time at the new settlement at 
Rehoboth. 

John Doggett, husbandman, was one of the earliest settlers of 
Rehoboth, Mass., which comprised in its greatest extent the present 
town, together with Seekonk, Pawtucket, Attleboro', Cumberland, 
R.I., and that part of Swansea and Barrington which was called by 
the Indians Wannamoiset. It does not appear that any general or 
permanent settlement was made here earlier than about the year 
1643 ; and it was after this that John Doggett joined the settlement, 
at the time of removal from Watertown, possibly as a step toward 
his settlement at Martha's Vineyard. The first notice that we find of 
him in Rehoboth is : 

The 8"! of the S"" mo. 1646 at a general meeting of the town upon public 
notice given, it was agreed that John Doget shall have all the lands that were laid 
out for John Megges and because there was no lot laid out for him upon the great 
plain, it was agreed upon that he shall have both his allotments according to 
the estate upon the great plain and to begin upon the south side. 

The 9th of the 12th mo., 1G46, at a meeting of the townsmen, 
John Dogget and others were made choice of "to view the fence of 
the town lots." 

The same day it was agreed that Edward Sale, John Dogget, 
William Sabin, John Peram, and William Thayer shall have leave to 
set up a " weier" upon the cove before William Devill's house, and 
one upon Pawtucket river. 



76 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

It is also of interest to read that by this agreement " they shall sell 
their alwives at 2s. a thousand, and their other fish at reasonable 
rates." 

The 18th of the 12th mo., 1646, at a meeting of the town, it was 
agreed to draw lots for the new meadow, and John Dogget drew 
No. 40. 

The 12th of the 2d mo., 1648, at a general meeting of the town, 
upon public notice given, John Oogget and Robert Titus were chosen 
deputies for the towne. [Bliss Hist. Rehoboth.] 

The records at Plymouth, dated June 7, 1648, give the committee 
for the court for Eehoboth as Robert Titus, John Dogged. [Court 
Orders, 2-164.] 

June 7, 1648, at Plymouth, among the names of those who were 
propounded for freemen, was John Dogged. [Court Orders, 2-167.] 

The same day his name is recorded among those that were to take 
the oath. [Court Orders, 2-166.] 

Again, on the same day, he was appointed surveyor of the high- 
ways for Eehoboth, and during that year he was also an exciseman. 

The same date, it is recorded that : 

Whereas it doth apeer, yt ther is a debt of five pound and eight shillings 
apertaining unto Georg. Wright in the hands of John Dogged of Rehoboth the 
Court have ordered yt the said debt remayne atached in the hands of John 
Dogged aforesaid for the use of Leiftenant Nash and Sergeant Church in con- 
sideration of the damage befaling them by the above said Georg Wright, the 
breaking of his bonds for the good behavior. 

It would seem that leaving his son John at Rehoboth, he removed, 
about this time, to the Vineyard, where it is possible his son Thomas 
had already settled. 

The early records on the Vineyard are quite imperfect, and, aside 
from the wills and deeds, those that have been preserved are mostly 
in the collection of the late Hon. Richard L. Pease, of Edgartown, 
Mass. 

It is probable, after his arrival here, John Doggett was occupied 
much the same as at Watertown, in agricultural pm'suits, and in 
making his home in the new town, which they laid out and called 
Edgartown. 

March 29, 1651, the town chose him corporal. 

1652. "Ordered that Mr. Mayhew, ye dder, and John Doggett, 
shall lay out all highways belonging to this town." 

October 31, 1654, vote regarding John Doggett's ram. 

June 5, 1655, he was chosen assistant for the year. 

John Doggett went from Martha's Vineyard to Nantucket in 1659, 
for the purpose of gunning, where he lived as boarder with Thomas 
Macy, the first English settler on Nantucket.

March 3, 1660, he buys "Farm Neck" of Wampauog, alias 
Samuel, Sachem of Sanchacantackett, or Farm Neck. [Dukes Deeds,

1660. This is by ye authority of ye town. 

Thomas Mathew. 

2 Oct 1662 At this court [Plymouth] John Doged of the Island called 
Martins Vineyard complained against the towne of the said Vineyard in an action 
of the case for the title of a certain peell of land granted unto the said John 
Dogged by Mr. Thomas Mayhew . . . which the said inhabitants doe un- 
justly and illegally disturbe him in his quiet enjoyment of tlie same which said 
case is by joynt consent on both ptyes refered to the determination of the court. 
The Jury find for the plantiff the full title granted him by Mr Thomas Mayhew, 
Senr. [Rec. of Mass. Bay in N.E., Vol. VII., p. lO-l.] 

Jan. 29, 1665 There was a purchase of commonage of grass also ^K of the i; 
of lot next the sea that faleth to the town upon the Island called Martins Vine- 
yard these several things being purchased by Jolin Doggett the Elder from 
Towanicut the sachem thereof and delv'd the same over into the hands of the 
Townsmen. [Dukes Deeds, 1-354.] 

These few facts are all that have been found relating to his resi- 
dence on the Vineyard. It is probable that his wife died and was 
buried here, but there are no records found of the date or place. 

He was married again at Plymouth, Mass., August 29, 1667, and 
was then called " John Doged of Martins Vineyard," 

After his marriage to Bathsheba Pratt, he probably resided most 
of the time at Plymouth, and the records there under date 1670, May 
29, mention him as John Doggett, Senior, of Plymouth, transcribed 
on the list of " freemen." 

In the Dukes County Deeds, 1-321, is " The record of John 
Dagget sen'r will." 

Plymouth May 17, 1673

JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 

SECOND GENERATION. 

680. John Doggett^ {John'), born England (?), about 1626; 
died Rehoboth, Mass., September 9, 1707; married Rehoboth, 
Mass., 23, 9 mo., 1651, Anne Sutton. 

Issue : 

685.1. Anna Doggett,^ born Rehoboth, Mass., middle of August, 1653; 
married Rehoboth, Mass., March 12, 1684, Joseph, son of Sampson 
Mason; he born Rehoboth, Mass., March 6, 1663. 

686. ii. John Doggett,^ born Rehoboth, Mass., January 8, 1655; died Reho- 

both, Mass., last of March, 1662. 

687. iii. .Joseph Doggett,^ born Rehoboth, Mass., middle of November, 1657. 

688. Iv. Nathaniel Doggett,^ born Rehoboth, Mass., middle of August, 1661. 

689. V. Elizabeth Doggett,^ born Rehoboth, Mass., October 23, 1666. 

John Doggett was one of the early settlers of Rehoboth. The 
record of his family may still be seen in the town book, and the 
following is a tracing from the original entry : 



DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY, 




4 






He does not appear, from the rpcords exjimined, to have taken any 
part ill public affairs until June 1 1658, when he was " on the grand 
enquest." This year (1658) he took the oath of fidelity in Reheboth. 

"June 22, 1658. At a town meeting lawfully warned, lots were 
drawn for the meadows that lie on the north side of the town (now 
in Attleboro'), and lot No. 34 fell to John Dogget." [Bliss, Reho- 
both.] 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 81 

"June 1, 1663. John Doged of Rehobotb being by Capt Willett 
convicted of '2 lyes, is fined 20 shillings." [Court Orders, 4-48.] 

In 1666 a purchase of lands in the north side of Rehoboth (became 
afterward Attleboro') was first called the North Purchase, and of the 
seventy-nine shares in the land John Doggett had one share. 

Oct 16, 1666. John Doggett, John Woodcock and John Titus were chosen 
by the town to see what timber trees are fallen on the late purchased lands on 
the north side of our town and they shall have the forfeiture for their pains and 
the trees to those that the land shall fall to. 

May 26, 1668. John Doggett drew a lot in the meadow lands in 
the North Pui-chase. 

July 7, 1668. John Doged begins suit against George Robinson, 
for slander, and George Robinson makes acknowledgment to the 
court : 

I George Robinson acknowledge I have done John Doged wronge, in speaking 
words that tend to his defamation, for which I am sorry, and I had not ground 
so to report him in the case now depending in the court and therefore desire him 
to passe it by. [Mass. Col. Rec, Vol. VIII., p. 147.] 

"March 2, 166f. Cap' Thomas Willet complained against Mr. 
John Doged and John Miller, in an action of trespas, on the case to 
the damage of five pounds, for making and carrying away a p'cell of 
hay from lower Skesett the last hay season without his leave and 
order." Marked in margin, " This action was withdrawn." 

Among the names of those who drew for a division on the North 
Purchase, March 18, 166|, was John Doggett. [Daggetts, Attle- 
boro'.] 

June 4, 1669. A writing of the lands of John Doged, of Reho- 
both. [Court Orders, 3-140.] 

January 9, 167f. John Dogget had liberty granted him to build 
a warehouse and wharf at the water side. 

June 5, 1672. He was surveyor of highways. 

June 3, 1674. Was sworn as constable. 

During King Philip's war Rehoboth was much distui-bed, and 
mauy of her residents killed, and their houses burned by the Indians. 
At one period of the war advances of money were made, and John 
Dogget contributed £11 Is. 3Jd. 

At the death of his father John Dogget came into possession of 
land on Martha's Vineyard, and the records on the Vineyard speak 
of him sometimes as Doggett and others as Daggett, the first indica- 
tions of such change in spelling being found on those records. 

May 29, 1676. He sells Joseph Daggett land at Edgartown. 
[Dukes Deeds, 1-280.] 

This tendency on the Vineyard to change in spelling is perhaps 



DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 



better illustrated by an exchange of lands between him and his 
brother, October 9, 1677, when: 

John Dogget of Eehoboth sells land at Rehoboth 22 acres, to his brother 
Thomas Dogget of Edgartown on Marthas Vineyard, his brother to take choice 
of one of 3 lots, signed by John and Anne Dogget (Bristol Deeds, 1-22), and 
Thomas Daggett, of Edgartown, sells land on the Vineyard, late belonging " to 
my father John Doggett deceased with the bounds as made lately between my 
brother John myself and my brother Joseph Daggett to my brother John 
Daggett," Thomas Doggett releasing all rights. Signed Thomas and Hannah 
Daggett. [Dukes Deeds, 1-323.] 

2 June, 1686, John Dogget was surveyor at Rehoboth. 

In a list of the inhabitants of Rehoboth, holding land under a cer- 
tain grant, February 7, 1689, his name is mentioned as John Daggett, 
and afterward so spelled on the records at Rehoboth. A point of 
land between Ten-mile river and the Pawtucket, upeu the north side 
of the former, is mentioned by Bliss as the probable location of a 
point called " Daggett's Point." 

August 5, 1G92, John Daggett of Rehoboth, in the Province of Mass. Bay in 
N.E. for 85£ paid by James AUin of the town of Chilmark, on Marthas Vine- 
yard, land in the township of Edgartown 330 acres near farm pond. [Dukes 
Deeds, 1-151.] 

This is probably his portion in his father's estate, together with 
the portion he bought of his brother, October 9, 1677. 

Eeb. 1, 170f. Sells John Dagget of Chilmark on Marthas Vineyard, 25 acres 
land in Attleboro. [Bristol Deeds, 5-246.] 

In the Bristol probate records, October 1, 1707, Nathaniel Dag- 
gett, son and executor of John Daggett, late of Rehoboth, deceased. 
Inventory amounts to £39 12s. lOd. 

681. Thomas Doggett- {John^), born Watertown, Mass. (?), 
about 1630 ; called his name Daggett ; died Edgartown,, Mass. ( ?) , be- 
tween March 18 and September 15, 1691 ; married, about 16.57, 
Hanuah Mayhew, daughter of Gov. Thomas and Jane Mayhew, 
of Edgartown, Mass.; born Watertown, Mass., 15, 4th mo., 16.35; 
died Edgartown, Mass., 1722. 



690. i. Thomas Doggett,^ born Edgartown, Mass., about 1658. 

691. li. Samuel Doggett,^ born Edgartown, Mass., about 1660; died Edgar- 

town, Mass., February 26, 17|^. 

692. iii. John Doggett,^ born Edgartown, Mass., 1662. 

693. It. Joshua Doggett,^ born Edgartown, MassI, about 1664. 

694. V. Israel Doggett,^ born Edgartown, Mass., about 1672. 

695. vi. Mercy Doggett,^ born Edgartown, Mass. 

Thomas Doggett married the eldest daughter of Governor Mayhew. 

The Mayhew family were prominent in the management of affairs 
on the island, and most of the early records now existiug are in the 
handwriting of members of that family. 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 83 

These records are the first showing a teudeucy to spell the name 
"Daggett," but for several years both spellings are used. 

Long after the name was spelled Daggett on the Vineyard (in the 
Registry of Deeds), the son Thomas was called Doggett in the 
Bristol county records, and I should therefore be inclined to 
the opinion that the Thomas Doggett who married Hannah Mayhew 
may not have himself called his name Daggett until near the close of 
his life. 

November 11, 1652. He and William Weeks are voted whale 
cutters for the year. 

In 1652 he was li^ang in Edgartown, as at that time " Richard 
Arey hath given him, a house lott between Jlr Burehard and Thomas 
Daggett's." [Hon. R. L. Pease.] 

August 3, 1670. Thomas Doged was clarke to the court at the 
Vineyard. [Plymouth Records.] 

June 20, 1679, he promises whatever Thomas Mayhew shall give 
to his daughter Hannah (his wife) , she shall be at liberty to dispose 
of as she likes. [Dukes Deeds, 1-322.] 

The Dukes and Bristol county deeds contain many transfers of 
land made by both Thomas and Hannah Daggett. 

Thomas Daggett is said to have been at one time magistrate of the 
island. 

March 18, 1691. Hannah Daggett, wife of Thomas Daggett, of Edgartown. 
for 30£, paid by son Thomas Daggett, late of the town of Bristol, in N.E. | of 
J of all the lands given me by the Worshipfull Thdraas Mayhew Esq late of 
Marthas Vineyard dec'd, Tlie whole 1| mile by the sea side, and about 2 miles 
inland, called Chickomo. [Dukes Deeds, 5-84.] 

Thomas Daggett died between March 18 and September 15, 1691, 
probably at Edgartown, but there are no records there to show the 
exact date. 

Even the probate records do not assist, as they are very imperfect, 
and contain no mention of the settlement of his estate. 

That he left no will is shown by a record in the Registry of Deeds, 
1-221, where his son Thomas gives Israel, his brother, land, 
regarding which he says: 

Lands which came to me the said Thomas, as heir to said Thomas Daggett, 
as well from the knowledge of tlie intent of my said fatlier, had Providence 
allowed him making a will. 

Dated September 15, 1691. 

Between September 12, 1695, and 1705, Mrs. Daggett man-ied 
Capt. Samuel Smith, of Edgartown, and died in Edgartown, 1722. 

" The last will and testament of Hannah Smith of ye town of Edgartown in 
Dukes County in Province of ye Massachusetts Bay, in New England, being in

sound mind and understanding, doth make this my last will and testament, here- 
tofore by me made, done or supposed to be made," gives natural son, Israel Dag- 
gett, land at Edgartown, and Chappaquiddick, until his eldest son Samuel 
Daggett be 21 years, then to him and his heirs forever. Her two sons, Joshua 
and Israel, land at Edgartown. The same her executors. Dated Aug. 22, 1710. 
Proved Feb. 7, 172|. [Dukes Probate, 1-145.] 

682. Joseph Doggett'' (Jb/m'), born Watertown, Mass. (?), 
about 1634 ; called his name Daggett; married an Indian of Martha's 
Vineyard. 

Issue : 

696. i. Joseph Daggett,^ born Tisbury, Mass. (?) 

697. ii. Ellis (Alice) Daggett,-' died between March 19 and May 11, 1711. 

698. iii. Esther Daggett,-' married Edward Cottle, and had issue, Esther 

Cottle." 

Joseph Doggett probably removed from Watertowu to the Vine- 
yard at an early age. The only information regarding him is found 
on the records at the Vineyard, and in the majority of cases his name 
is spelled Daggett. 

One instance, however, in the deeds, 1-322, May 29, 1675, is 
marked in the margin in pencil, "apparently original signatui'es," 
and in that case his name is spelled "- Dogget." In all other cases 
the name is in the handwriting of the one who made the record, and 
is sometimes spelled one way, and at other times the other. 

I should be inclined to the opinion that in this case, as with his 
brother Thomas, he may not have himself called his name Daggett; 
but if so, not until near the close of his life. 

The name of his wife does not appear, but the following deed to 
his two daughters would indicate that his wife may have been an 
Indian : 

Know all men by these presents that I, Puttuspagun, of Sanchacantackett, do 
freely give unto my cousins Hester and Ellis Daggett, a certain tract of meadow 
lying and being on the north side of Ohkeshkepe Neck, lying between Quaniamo 
and the western end of Asanostackitt Pond. I say, I do freely and firmly give, 
all the meadow with all the nookesand coves lying between the mentioned bounds, 
to my abovementioned cousins, their heirs and assigns, to have and to hold, for- 
ever free from me, my heirs or assigns, and this I do and have done for the 
natural love and affection to them, being of my near kindred, always to be 
understood that if they cannot enjoy the said meadow by reason of the English 
claim, that then it shall return to me or my heirs. And in witness, and in con- 
firmation of the premises, I have hereunto subscribed with my hand and put to 
my seal this five and twentieth day of March and in the year of our Lord, one 
thousand six hundred eighty and five.

says : " Refresh at Chases, from thence ride to Tisbui-y, first man I 
speak with is Joseph Dogget. He tells me Mr. Kithcart keeps an 
ordinary." 

He seems to have lived in Tisbury until sometime between Sep- 
tember 11, 1711, and June 24, 171.5, when he is called of Edgartown. 
The last record of him that has been found is March 5, 1720, when 
he is called one of the proprietors of Tisbury land. [D. D., 5-210.]

86 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

Dr. Joseph Doggett resided iu Rehoboth, Mass., where he appears 
to have practised medicine, and also to have been wheelwright and 
miller. 

Among the Rehoboth soldiers who served in King Philip's war 
was Joseph Doggett, who was engaged in the Narragansett expedi- 
tion in 1676. [Bliss, Rehoboth.] 

Oct. 27, 1686, he buys with his brother Nathaniel, and Thomas Daggett, Esq., 
of Edgartown, 50 acres of land, on both sides of the Ten Mile river, at the falls, 
in the North Purchase. [Bristol Deeds, 5-84.] 

This was the laud immediately around the falls, iucludiug the 
privilege. 

" The first mill built at the falls was a corn mill, owned and occu- 
pied by Joseph Daggett. This was doubtless the first mill in town." 
[Daggett's Hist. Attleboro'.] 

February 7, 1689. Joseph Daggett is named in a list of inhabi- 
tants and proprietors of Rehoboth holding land under a grant from 
William Bradford. In 1690 he killed a wolf. 

Gay Head, on Martha's Vineyard, with its high-colored and varie- 
gated earth, suggested at an early day the existence of minerals. 

August 17, 1692, Joseph Daggett, of Rehoboth, and Samuel Gaskell, of Boston, 
buy of Thomas Harlock and Hannah Daggett, the right to search for mines or 
minerals, precious stones, &c., at Gayhead. [Dukes Deeds, 1-184.] 

"March 30, 1703, the town [Attleboro'] voted that Joseph Daggett, 
of Rehoboth, have the privilege that the stream at the Ten Mile river 
falls shall go free of all sorts of taxes until a corn mill has the con- 
stant custom of threescore families." [Hist. Attleboro.] 

The will of Dr. Joseph Daggett, of Rehoboth, is dated December 
23, 1726, and was proved March 21, 172f. 

In it he mentions his wife and children, and appoints his wife Mary 
Daggett executrix. [Bristol Probate.] 

688. Nathaniel Doggett' {John,- John'), born Rehoboth, 
Mass., middle of August, 1661; called his name Daggett; died 
Rehoboth, Mass. (?), 1708; married Rehoboth, Mass., June 24, 
1686, Rebecca MUler, daughter of John Miller, of Rehoboth, Mass. ;

Nathaniel Doggett, wheelwright aud weaver, resided in Rehoboth. 
"February 7, 1689, Nathaniel Daggett mentioned in a list of the 

names of the inhabitants and proprietors of Rehoboth holding land 
under a grant to William Bradford." [Bliss, Rehoboth.] 

In a purchase of land at Rehoboth in 1694, he is called Dogget, 
while in another purchase in 1695 his name is spelled Daggett. 

In the Bristol probate files are several papers relating to the settle- 
ment of the estate of Nathaniel Daggett : 

His will, dated Feb. 5, 1708, in ivhich his wife is named executrix. 
An inventory of tlie estate of Nathaniel Daggett, left him by his father John 
Daggett, in reversion, after his mother's decease. Dated Dec. 30, 1708. 

Rebecca Daggett, his widow, did not long survive him, and in the 
Bristol Probate is an 

Inventory of the estate of widow Rebecca Daggett, late of Rehoboth, 
amounting to £121 2s. 15d., and dated April 27, 1711. 

An account of George Wood, of Rehoboth, administrator of the estate of 
Rebecca Daggett, widow, May 12, 1713.

Captain Thomas Daggett, caipenter, gentleman, seems to have 
been called, like others of his family, both "Doggett" and "Dag- 
gett." The existing records at Bristol speak of him as the first, and 
those at Edgartown always as the last. 

The records of the Chiu-ch of Christ at Bristol, R.I. (formerly 
Mass.), mention, July 22, 1688, the baptism, by Rev. Samuel Lee, 
of Samuel and Hannah Doggett, children of Thomas Doggett. [Gen. 
Register, Vol. 34, p. 132.] 



88 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

The exact date of his settlement at Bristol has not been found, but 
is supposed to have been about 1685. Possibly he was previously 
at Eehoboth, and the Thomas who was constable there, June 3, 1684. 

February 11, 168|. Among the list of families in New Bristol, 
copied from original records of the " Church of Christ in Bristol," is 
Thomas Doggett, his wife, two children, and two sei-vants. [Gen. 
Register, Vol. 34, p. 405.] 

Dec 30, 1689. Thomas Doggett of Bristol, county Bristol, in New Eng- 
land, carpenter, and Elizabeth his now wife, for 16£ paid by Thomas Walker of 
Bristol, Tanner, land in Bristol at the south end of the town, bounded west by 
the street, being an estate of inheritance, recorded May 16, 1695. [Bristol 
Deeds, 2-150.] 

He removed from Bristol to Edgartown between December 30, 
1689, and March 18, 1691, or just before the death of his father. 

March 18, 1691. Samuel Daggett of Marthas Vineyard, for 20£ paid by his 
brother Thomas Daggett, late of the town of Bristol, in New England, sells all 
his rights at Chicomo. [Dukes Deeds, 5-8-t.] 

Oct. 29, 1692. Thomas Daget, now or late of Bristol, carpenter, and Eliza- 
beth, his now wife, for 42£ paid by William Stone, of Bristol, mariner, one 
house lot, and land containing 2 acres, in Bristol, bounded north by Corn Street, 
east by High St. South by land of Samuel Gallop, west by land of Benj. Ingles, 
and Jos. Baston, 16 X 20 rods, also xio"' part of 600 acres land laid out for 
common. Recorded Aug 11, 1713. [Bristol Deeds, 7-650.] 

Among the many transfers of land in which he was one of the 
parties he is mentioned as Lieutenant Daggett until 1697, and then as 
Captain Daggett, beginning with a deed in 1705. 

The only information that has been found regarding the life of 
Captain Daggett is what may be gathered from the deeds, with the 
single exception of a memorandum of him, which is found in the 
Diary of Rev. William Homes, of Chilmark: "Aug 28, 1726, On 
Thursday night last Capt Thomas Daggett of oldtown [Edgartown] 
departed this life. He had been ill several weeks. He was a peace- 
able man and well inclined, and of good understanding." 

The will of Captain Daggett is dated July 8, 1726, and by it he gives son 
Samuel's children, he being deceased,^ the land that was his fathers homestead; 
son Thomas Daggett the other half of the homestead ; son Timothy Daggett land 
at Edgartown; son Benjamin Daggett land at Edgartown; loving wife Elizabeth; 
six daughters Hannah, Elizabeth, Thankful, Mary, Jemina, Desire, gives them 
^ the stock, cattle, sheep and horses ; 3 living sons Executors. Proved Oct. 
1726. [Dukes Probate, 1-14, 15.] 

Inventory recorded May 12, 1727; real estate valued at £1393. 
Elizabeth did not long sur^^ve her husband, and at her decease left 
a will, an extract of which follows : 

Dec 25, 1732. Will of Elizabeth Daggett of Edgartown, gentlewoman: loving 
sou Benjamin; daughters. Thankful, Mary Norton, Jemima Butler, Hannah,

town, Mass., 1662 ; called his name Daggett; died Attleboro', Mass., 
September 7, 1724; married, about 168.5, Sarah Norton (?). 

Issue : 

725. i. Mayhew Daggett,'' born about 1686.

731. vii. ZiLPHA Daggett.^ 

732. viii. Patience Daggett,'' born Martha's Vineyard, 1705. 

733. ix. Mart Daggett.'' 

Deacon John Daggett, yeoman, tanner, and innholder, was prob- 
ably born in Edgartown, Mass. He resided there until sometime 
previous to February 8, 1683, when 

" John Daggett late of Edgartown on Marthas Vineyard " sells " 10 acres of 
land which the town of Edgartown gave me," to "my father Thomas Daggett of 
Edgartown." [Dukes Deeds, 5-72.] 

February 20, 169|. John Daggett releases any claim he might 
have to estate of his mother, Hannah Daggett, " located near the 
Gurnet." [Dukes Deeds, 1-104.] 

March 17, 1693. John Daggett of Prudence, on Marthas Vineyard, buys 14 
acres land on road from Tisbury to Holmes Hole, from his brother Joshua 
Daggett. [Dulses Deeds, 1-225.] 

March 17, 1693. John Daggett of Prudence, on Marthas Vineyard, buys 80 
acres land of his brother Joshua Daggett. [Dukes Deeds, 1-315] 

Prudence, which is here named as his residence, was a portion of 
Tisbury, and the records speak of " the manuour of Tisbury, com- 
monly called Chilmark," so that although each of these places is 
named at different times as his residence, it is probable that after 
lea-ving Edgartown he resided during his residence on the island in 
what is now called Tisbury. 

Sept. 12, 1695. Hannah Daggett, widow of Cap' Thomas Daggett, late of 
Edgartown, on Marthas Vineyard, in consideration of lore, and natural affection, 
for her son John Daggett, of Marthas Vineyard, gives him land at the Vineyard. 
[Dukes Deeds, 1-889.] 

The following deeds are of the first piu'chases of laud made by 
him in Attleboro' : 

Not 12, 1701 Israel Daggett, of Marthas Vineyard, for 40£, paid by John 
Daggett of Marthas Vineyard, his brother, land in Attleboro, 25 acres at the 
falls. [Bristol Deeds, 15-505.] 

Feb. 1, 170j. John Daggett, of Rehoboth, sells 25 acres land in Attleboro, to 
John Daggett, of Chilmark,^ on Marthas Vineyard. [Bristol Deeds, 5-246.] 

July 28, 1704. Thomas Butler, of Chilmark, sells John Daggett of same 
lands and meadow in Rehoboth, and Attleboro, County Bristol, formerly in tenure 



90 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

of Thomas Doggett, Esq: late deceased, and Israel Daggett, his son, excepting 
only those lands and marshes, which were sold by Israel Daggett, or Thomas 
Butler. [Bristol Deeds, 4-304.] 

June 10, 1711. John Daggett, of Chilmark, yeoman, and Mayhew Daggett, 
of Attleboro, County Bristol, yeoman, bind themselves to John Devotion, of 
Attleboro, in the sum of 200£. [Bristol Deeds, 7-267.] 

Mayhew Daggett, as seen in above, having preceded his father in 
the removal to Attleboro', may have been an inducement to hasten 
the removal of the family there. 

The purchase of the farm to which the family removed was on 
July 10, 1711, " when John Devotion, of Attleboro', for 400£, con- 
veys farm in Attleboro containing 280 acres, bounded by Wrentham 
line, to John Daggett, of Chilmark, Marthas Vineyard, with 25 acres 
on 10 mile river, except 2 acres, the barn, and orchard, now in pos- 
session of Penticost Blackinton ; also whole share in the undivided 
lands in Attleboro." [Bristol Deeds, 7-27.] 

John Daggett and family removed from Martha's Vineyard to Attle- 
boro' between October 17, 1711, and December 24, 1712. 

After the purchase of the farm at Attleboro' he sells much of his 
land at the Vineyard. 

Having removed to Attleboro', it would seem that he at once became 
an innkeeper, and soon became interested in town and church affairs. 
His house is reported as being used as a garrison house. 

His lands being located on the road from Boston to Rhode Island, 
and his tavern a convenient stopping-place en route, he soon became 
well known, not only to the people of Attleboro', but to all travellers 
between Boston and Rhode Island. 

" In 1720 Deacon John Daggett was representative of the town of 
Attleboro." [Hist. Attleboro'.] 

April 16, 1722. John Daggett of Attleboro, yeoman, for 550£ sells, Alex- 
ander Maxey of Gloucester, County Essex, yeoman, homestead farm in Attle- 
boro, at a place called Ten Mile River, to a place called M' Hope hill, 170 acres, 
excepting a small piece of ground 6 rods square, where the burying place now is, 
which I, the said Daggett, reserved for my own use and the use of my neighbors. 
[Bristol Deeds, 15-8.5.] 

April 6, 1724, he sells 103 acres, on Ten Mile river, at the falls, to son May- 
hew Daggett. [Bristol Deeds, 15-504.] 

Deacon John Daggett died September 7, 1724, leaving a will 
dated April 13, 1724, in which he leaves his 'property to his wife and 
children. This will was proved October 20, 1724. 

The inventory, dated September 28, 1724, amounts to £525 4s. Id., 
and mentions land at Martha's Vineyard and at Mansfield, Conn. 
[Bristol Probate.] 

In what was, apparently, originally the centre of the old Hatch 
burying-ground in Attleboro', there stands erect, in a good state of

Among the family papers of an old Boston family was found the 
following epitaph, which has been sent the writer, and is supposed to 
refer to Deacon John Daggett, and shows the retention of the original 
spelling : 

EPITAPH ON LANDLORD DOGGETT 

Innbolder at Attleborough. 
Traveller 

If ever dram to thee was dear, 
Drop on John Doggett's grave a Tear ;

At length Death knocks ! poor Doggett cry'd, 
And said "I'm coming Sir! and Dy'd. 

After the death of her husband, Mrs. Daggett authorizes her son 
to sell lands on the Vineyard : 

Aug. 27, 1733. widow of John Daggett, of Attleboro, appoints Ebenezer 
Daggett, her son, of Attleboro, Innkeeper, her agent, to sell all lands on Mar-

1699. (Dukes Deeds, 5-385.) 

Mrs. Sarah Daggett, widow of Deacon John Daggett, married 
Banfield Capron, December 16, 1735. She was his third wife. He 
died August 20, 1752, aged ninety-two years. When she died or

Account of Margaret Tree, late widow of Joseph Daggett, late of 
Attleboro'. [Bristol Probate.] 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 95 

Richard Tree and Margaret Daggett were married in Attleboro' 
April 27, 1736, and had: 

Eunice Tree, born Attleboro', January 30, 173f. 

Levina Tree, born Attleboro', January 13, 1741; died Attleboro', January 
13, 1741. 

The records of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, 
March, 1745, contain the 

Petition of Richard Tree of Rehoboth and others, heirs of Joseph Dogget, 
late of Attleboro, deceased, showing that the real estate of said deceased was 
distributed to Margaret, Hannah, the petitioners, and Simeon, his only son, 
agreeable to Law, th;it the said Simeon Dagget (being then a minor) had his 
uncle Israel Dagget, of Rehoboth, duly appointed his Guardian, who accepted 
that trust ; that about 5 years since the said Simeon went abroad and has never 
been heard of since and is probably dead, yet the guardian so appointed refuses 
(though the said Simeon if living is 22 years of age) to deliver up the said 
estate, or income thereof, to the petitioners, the true heirs, but converts it to 
his own use. They therefore pray that said guardian be ordered to deliver pos- 
session. 

March 15, 1745. Ordered that the estate be distributed. 

This petition and order was evidently premature, as the will of 
Simeon Daggett, of Attleboro', dated August 20, 1746, calls himself 
"mariner," mentions his sister Hannah and uncle Israel, and this 
instrument was proved April 5, 1758, showing that he had returned 
after the above order was passed. 

The Bristol probate records also disclose the fact that Simeon 
Daggett's mother, while a widow, gave him to his uncle John Dag- 
gett, of Rehoboth, after which she married Richard Tree, and then 
wanted him, to which he objected, August 25, 1736.

Col. John Daggett was one of the principal public characters and 
leading men of Attleboro', especially during the trying period of the 
Revolution. 

He and Colonel May were the two on whom the towu placed the 
utmost reliance. 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 117 

Decembei' 9, 1763, he was chosen clerk of the Propriety. He was 
possessed of a strong and sound mind, and was marked by a resolute 
and decided character. 

He was a Puritan in the plainness and simplicity of his manners, 
and was a firm friend to the civil institutions and republican customs 
of New England. 

September 12, 1774, he was chosen on the Committee of Safety by 
the town, and on the 29th of the same month was chosen representa- 
tive to the General Court at Salem. 

December 6, 1774, the town established a Superior and an Inferior 
Court to hear and determine controversies that have arisen or may 
arise. Of the five men who were chosen superior judges. Colonel 
Daggett was chosen second justice. 

He took an early and decided stand in the commencement of those 
proceedings which produced the Revolution. 

One of the incidents in which he figured took place in December, 

1774, when the Committee of Safety gave notice that one Aldrich, a 
Tory, who lived in Franklin, Mass. , was selling British goods contrary 
to the resolutions of the General Court. Colonel Daggett issued 
orders to the several companies of the town to furnish a certain num- 
ber of men, who, being collected, marched on a bitter cold night for 
the place of Aldrich's residence, to put a stop to the business. They 
arrived late at night, and, surrounding his house, oi'dered him out. 
After threatening to fire on each other, Aldrich at last came out, and, 
after engaging not to vend any more British goods during the con- 
troversy, was released. 

On the 9th of April, 1775, occurred another expedition, which Col- 
onel Daggett undertook for the purpose of seizing a deposit of arms 
and ammunition, at Assonett Village (Freetown), which the Commit- 
tee of Safety understood was collected there for the use of the 
loyalists. 

They discovered forty stands of arms and equipments in possession 
of the Tories, together with a large quantity of ammunition, the whole 
of which was taken by the patriots. 

January 2, 1775, the town chose Col. John Daggett " to represent 
us at the Congress to be holden at Cambridge on the 1st of Feb. 
next and to serve in that capacity until the month of May next 
or until the time fixed for the dissolution of said Congress." 

He was representative, 1768, 1769, 1770, 1771, 1772, 1773, 1774, 

1775, 1781. 

May 21, 1777, Colonel Daggett was on a committee appointed to 
make a report relative to the new Constitution of the United States, 
and on the following day was one of a committee to prepare instruc- 
tions for the representative. 



118 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

August 2, 1779, he was one of a committee of three, sent by the 
town, to attend a convention at Cambridge, on the first of September 
following, at which time was formed the present Constitution of 
Massachusetts. 

He was generally called to serve on the most important committees 
which were raised in town meeting, to consider the many difficult sub- 
jects which were then brought before the people during and subsequent 
to the Revolution. 

August 18, 1778, General Sullivan, during his expedition to Rhode 
Island, requested the government of Massachusetts to send him reen- 
forcement. 

In compliance with this request, the orders were issued by the 
council of the State, directing Colonel Daggett, of the Fourth Regiment 
(including as now Attleboro', Mansfield, Norton, andEaston), to 
take charge of the detachment. In obedience to these orders, a 
regiment, consisting of nine hundred men, was formed out of the sev- 
eral regiments, which repaued to Rhode Island and served under the 
command of Colonel Daggett during the remainder of the campaign. 
Colonel Daggett also commanded the regiment from Bristol county, 
in Spencer's expedition. At home he was extensively employed as a 
surveyor, and was engaged in various other kinds of public business, 
such as the ordinary transactions of life require between citizens.

Rev. Naphtali Daggett, D.D., President of Yale College, was the 
second son among eight children. 

His father dying while he was yet young, he was left under the 
direction of a mother, who was, however, in every respect peculiarly 
qualified to discharge the duties which devolved upon her. 

He soon after commenced studies preparatory to college. He 
entered Yale College in 1744, and graduated in 1748, at the age of 
twenty-one. 

He was distinguished during his college life for industry and close 
application. 

He was settled as minister of Smithtown, on Long Island, in 1751. 
In September, 1755, he was elected the first professor of divinity in 
Yale College, which appointment he accepted, and removed to New 
Haven, and was inducted into office on March 4 following. This 
office he held during his life. After the resignation of Mr. Clap, 
September 10, 1766, he officiated as president till April 1, 1777, 
when he resigned the office, but still continued to hold that of pro- 
fessor of divinity. The learned Dr. Stiles was his successor in the 
presidency. 

During the barbarous attack on New Haven by the British army, in 
July, 1779, he took an active part in the defence of the country, and 
was distinguished for his resolution and inti'epidity. 

He made himself obnoxious by his open and active opposition to 
the British cause. 

He had often inculcated upon the students under his charge, in 
the pulpit and in the lecture-room, the duty of resistance to British 
oppression. He had, therefore, incurred the special displeasure of 
the invaders. 

He had openly preached and prayed against the success of their 
cause. 

He knew no difference between preaching and practising, and when 
the crisis came, he carried his own principles into action. 

He shouldered his musket and went into the field with the rest, to 
repel the invaders. 

He was taken prisoner by the enemy. They beat and bruised him, 
and offered him every indignity in their power. His clerical charac- 
ter, in their eyes, was no exemption from the most outrageous abuses. 



120 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

They demauded of Mm who he was ; he imhesitatiugly replied : " My 
uame is Naphtali Daggett. I am one of the officers of Yale College. 
I require you to release me." — " But we understand you have been in 
the habit of praying against our cause." — " Yes, and I never made 
more sincere prayers in my life." He was at first left for dead on the 
ground. He was saved by the intrepidity of the lady into whose 
house he had been conveyed. After the British had retired, an offi- 
cer and a file of soldiers were sent back to convey him a prisoner on 
board then- transports. They came to the house and inquired for 
him, and were answered by the lady, who appeared at the door and 
resolutely refused to admit them, that he was so badly wounded it 
would be impossible to convey him on board alive. " My orders," 
said the oflicer, "are positive to take him with me." — "But you 
would not surely carry away a dying man ; he is now in the agonies 
of death." 

After repeated demands and refusals, the officer finally determined 
to return and report the case to his superior, and ask for further 
orders, but he never came back after his prisoner. He was taken 
prisoner, and came near losing his life. 

Dr. Daggett died in consequence of the wounds he had received 
on that occasion, November 2.5, 1780, at the age of fifty-three. He 
presided over the university about eleven years, and held the office 
of professor of divinity twenty-five years. 

Possessed of a strong, clear, and comprehensive mind, he applied 
himself with assiduity and success to the various branches of knowl- 
edge, particularly to the learned languages and divinity. 

Dr. Holmes, in his life of President Stiles, says : "He was a good 
classical scholar, well versed in moral philosophy, and a learned 
divine." Clearness of understanding and accuracy of thought were 
characteristics of his mind. 

He received the honorary degree of Doctor in Divinity from Yale 
College, and also from Princeton. He published a sermon on the 
death of President Clap, 1767 ; another delivered at the ordination of 
Rev. Ebenezer Baldwin, 1770 ; and a third delivered at the ordination 
of Rev. J. Howe, 1773. [Daggett's Hist. Attleboro'.] 

Alden Bradford, in his notices of distinguished men in New Eng- 
land, says of Dr. Daggett that " he was respectable as a theologian 
and a general scholar. "While he acted as president of the college, 
it was in a prosperous state, and several of the alumni, distinguished 
afterwards in public life, were educated whUe he was at the head of 
that seminary. In his character as a scholar, we find indications and 
traits rather of solid and useful learning than of brilliancy, or of 
original genius. In that generation of men, there was more of a 
desire to be useful than to excite admiration."

pathy with the friends of the " Great Awakening," which occurred in 
the earlier part of his manhood, under the preaching of Whitefield,

Edwards, Bellamy, aud the Temieuts. In the controversy which, in 
subsequent years, grew out of that awakening, he was earnest on the 
side of its frieuds; so much so that he had a partiality for the 
" Separates " of that day, though he never united himself with them. 
He was a Baptist in sentiment.

Thomas Daggett probably removed to Tisbury about the time of 
his marriage. 

Dukes Deeds show the following sales of real estate, which he 
made from time to time, having doubtless in view his removal from 
the Island : 

Feb. 19, 1765 he and wife Rebecca to Lemuel Butler and Hannah his wife 
land in Chilmark. [Dukes Deeds, 9-444.] 

April 5, 1765 land in Tisbury to Robert Manter. [Dukes Deeds, 9-433.] 
April 5, 1765 land in Tisbury to Samuel Cobb. [Dukes Deeds, 9-553.]

Oct. 31, 1765 land in Tisbury to Thos. Walrod. [Dukes Deeds, 9-483.] 
April 11, 1769 he & others divide land in Tisbury. [Dukes Deeds, 9-648.] 
Feb. 12, 1772 land in Tisbury to Lemuel Butler. [Dukes Deeds, 9-818.] 

Brotherton Daggett says : "The Daggetts being strongly inclined 
to move from Martha's Vineyard sent Thomas Daggett, Jr., to 
Albany and the vicinity in New York to look up a farm. He was 
not a judge of land, and returned without finding one to suit him. 

"Thomas Daggett, Senr., came along the coast, went back from 
Camden into the woods, and with some others was about to purchase 
the whole of Appleton Ridge, except the proprietors' reserved lots. 

" On going to the rear of the Ridge and seeing the Cedar Swamp, 
his courage failed him, and he went home without concluding a 
bargain. 

" A year or two afterward Thomas Daggett, Jr., and Aaron Dag- 
gett came to Union. 

" They purchased the place since owned by Olney Titus, cleared a 
piece, and sowed rye. 

" In the fall they took as a specimen a box of soil from the land 
now owned by Nahum Thurston, returned to Martha's Vineyard, and 
spent the winter. 

" Their father, Thomas Daggett, Senr., was prevailed ou to accom- 
pany them to Union in the following May." 

He bought May 29, 1789 — 700 acres of land in Union of Mason Wheaton 
of Thomaston for245£ and called himself of Tisbury. [Lincoln Deeds, 23-185.] 

July 14, 1789 he and his wife Rebecca of Union sell 90 acres land in Union 
to Samuel Daggett of Tisbury " cordwainer." [Lincoln Deeds, 25-111.] 

Tlie same date he of Union, gentleman, sells 100 acres in Union to Aaron 
Daggett, of Union. [Lincoln Deeds, 26-164.] 



128 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

Thomas Daggett came with his family to Union between May 29 
and July 14, 1789. 

"He landed at Warren. Everything seemed different from what 
it was in May. 

"He was a nervous man, and finding himself here for life he ex- 
claimed, ' I am completely undone.' The forests looked formidable. 
It was too woody for him. The family came to Union from Warren 
in boats." [Sibley's Hist, of Union, Me.] 

April 5, 1790, Thomas Daggett was one of a committee to hire 
preaching, and served again on a similar coYnmittee March 7, 1796. 

March 7, 1791, he was on a committee to receive and price lumber 
for use in building a meeting-house. 

May 7, 1792, one of the town's committee to make choice of a spot 
for a meeting-house. 

In 1798 he was " tithingman," and had pew No. 14, for which he 
paid $20.50. 

As regards the habits of the people at the church, Thomas Daggett, 
Senr., Capt. Nicholson, and Ebenezer Daggett, consulting their own 
convenience and comfort, were in the habit, even in meeting, of 
wearing cotton caps which rivalled the snow iu whiteness. 

March 7, 1803, he with others, including the selectmen, were a 
committee to confer with Mr. Gushee, respecting his settling there as 
a minister. 

When the Congregational church was organized, March 3, 1803, the 
articles and covenant were signed by Thomas Daggett, Mrs. Rebecca 
Daggett, and others. 

Jifne 24, 1806, Samuel Daggett was appointed administrator of 
Thomas Daggett, late of Union, deceased, intestate. [Lincoln Pro- 
bate, 9-102.] 

Inventory amounted to $592.64. [Lincoln Probate, 12-255.] 

June 29, 1813, Samuel Daggett renders his account, from which it 
appears there were five heii-s to the estate. [Lincoln Probate, 17-

Owing to imperfect record.*, and the frequent repetition of the same

zer Daggett. Mrs. A. C. Pratt, of Chelsea, Mass., who has made a

study of Martha's Vineyard families, and who succeeded to the col- 
lections of the late Hon. R. L. Pease, of Edgartown, sets up as 
a hypothetical line the one adopted above. This is adopted, and 
should be accepted only as a possible solution of the question. The 
future may prove or disprove it, but at present it seems the most 
likely of any possible line. 

901. John Daggett '^ {John,* Joseph,'^ Jose^yli,' John ^) (?), died

1201. iv. Deborah Daggett,* married March 22, 1795, Willard Spaulding; 

had son, John D. Spaulding. 

John Daggett, prior to his removal to Maine, resided in Edgartown. 
He was a " miller," and tradition says he operated a windmill on the 
island. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary war. He bought, 
February 11, 1793, lot No. 2 in the second range of lots in New 
Vineyard Township, aud probably began a clearing the same year. 
He received injuries while piling his chopping, from which he never 
recovered, and died soon after his removal from the Vineyard. 

Dr. Hatch suggests, in his History of Industry, that John may 
have been a brother of Ebenezer. 

Owing to imperfect records, the placing of this John as the John,* 
son of John,'' is only hypothetical, and should not be accepted, except 
as a theory, which may be proved right or wrong in the future.

1419. X. Homer Micajah Daggett,' born Attleboro', Mass., January 27, 1821. 

Hon. Ebeuezer Daggett, of Attleboro', held a commissiou of 
Justice of the Peace for nearly thirty years, and honorably discharged 
its most important duties. He served the town at various times in 
the capacity of Selectman, and was Town Cleric for upwards of twenty 
years. 

He represented the town several years in the General Court. A 
large part of the last thii-ty years of his life was occupied in some 
public employment. In various ways he reudered himself sei-viceable 
to his fellow-citizeus. 

In the spring of 1831 he was elected a member of the Senate for 
this disti'ict. At the succeeding November election he was rechoseu 
to the same office, and while in the discharge of the honorable and 
responsible duties of this station he was called by the order of Provi- 
dence to close his life at Boston, in the sixty-ninth year of his age. 

Possessed of natural abilities above mediocrity, which he had 
improved by self-education, he always directed them to useful pur- 
poses. Plain and unassuming in his manners, mild and uniform in 
his disposition, he had won the confidence of his fellow-citizens, but 
never sought after the honors which were bestowed upon him. 

Guided by fixed and pure principles, he was upright and honorable 
in all his dealings with his fellow-men, and preserved a character of 
unsullied integrity through a long and active life. He was regarded 
by his neighbors as then- father and adviser. If they were in diffi- 
culty or doubt, they came to him for counsel and assistance, and both 
were freely offered. So great was their confidence in his integrity 
and judgmeut, that he was genei-ally the chosen umpire in cases of 
controversies between his fellow-citizens. 

He was in fine, in the true and enlarged seuse of the word, a useful 
man. His life affords an encouraging example of the truth that 
respectable talents, united with integrity and industry, will raise a 
man to honor and usefuluess. [Daggett's Hist. Attleboro'.]

Rev. Herman Daggett was at his father's decease between fifteen 
aud. sixteen years of age. Quickened in his efforts by his zeal for 
knowledge he passed rapidly aud successfully through his course pre- 
paratory to college, and became a member of Brown University in 
1784. His standing there as a scholar was highly respectable, and 
he graduated in 1788. In the second year of his college course his 
mind, which had before been seriously directed by the influence of a 
Christian education, became deeply impressed with the subject of 
religion as a practical concern, and it was to this period that he re- 
ferred the commencement of his religious life. His ardor in literary 
pursuits seems not to have been at all repressed by the change in his 
moral feelings, though all his faculties and attainments were from 
this time evidently consecrated to the glory of God and the benefit of 
his fellow-creatures. 

After graduation he placed himself as a theological student under 
•Dr. Emmons. After spending a year in his preparatory studies, he 
was licensed to preach by the association holding its session at North- 
bridge, October, 1789. 

Within a short time after he was licensed, he visited Long Island 
with a view of being engaged as a preacher, thinking that the climate 
would prove more congenial to his health than that of New England. 
For a year he supplied the Presbyterian congregation at Southold, 
and though they gave him a unanimous call, yet, being unwUling 
to pi'actise on the "Half-way Covenant," he felt constrained to 
decline it. Thence he was called to preach at Southampton, where 
also he was unanimously invited to the pastorship. He was set apart, 
by the Presbytery, to the pastoral office, April 12, 1792. Almost 
immediately after his settlement, a difficulty arose on the subject of 
the "Half-way Covenant," and throughout the whole controversy 
which followed he behaved with great moderation and dignity, and 



i:>2 DOGGETT-DAGap:TT FA>riLY. 

bis character for discretion was never impugned. Tliis controversy 
was the principal, if not the entire, c:mse of his resigning iiis charge. 
It was siiflicient evidence that he came out of this controversy 
unscathed, tliat almost immediately after he was at liberty he was 
called to the pastoral care of the church at West Hampton, a village 
in the immediate neighborhood of the one he had left. Here he con- 
tinued greatly beloved and respected by his people from September, 
171)7, to September, 1801. 

In October, 1801, he was installed pastor of the church at Fire 
I'lace and Jliddle Island, in the town of Hrookhaven, and preached 
alternately to the two congregations till April, 1807, when his health 
had become so far reduced that he resigned his charge. 

He was greatly esteemed, especially by his brethren in the ministry, 
for the wisdom of his counsels, not less than for the consistency of 
his general deportment. 

After leaving Long Island his health improved, and for a year 
he preached and taught school at Cairo, N.Y. For some time he 
preached also at Patterson, Putnam county, and for two years he 
preached and taught an academy at North Salem ; thence he went to 
New Canaan, Conn., where he took charge of an academy. AVhen 
the Foreign Mission School was established by the American Board 
at Cornwall, Coun., Jlr. Daggett was placed at the head of it, May 
G, 1818. Here he labored with success for nearly six years, until 
1824, when he retired. [Early History of Southampton, I.. I., 186fi.]

Abner Daggett eulisted at Attleboro', Mass., in April, 177.3, under 
Capt. Caleb Fish, in the regiment commanded by Col. Timothy 
Walker, and marched to participate in the siege of Boston. 

At different periods during the Revolution he was stationed at 
Roxbury, Dorchester, and as guard at Preston's Point in the harbor, 
opposite the castle, until December, 1775, when he was discharged. 
About January 1, 1776, he again eulisted in the same company and 
regiment, as a bombadier, commanded by Colonel Crane of the 
artillery, for one year, and was in the battle of Long Island, August 
27, 1776, and witnessed the capture of Lord Sterling, of New Jersey. 
After the evacuation of New York city, September 15, 1776, he fol- 
lowed the army on its retreat to White Plains, his route being a 
fatiguing march through swamjjs and marshes. 

A few years after he left the army he lived in Walpole, Mass., and 
about 1708 he settled in Providence, R.I. 

John Howlaud, of Providence, in August, 1838, said that "Abner 
Daggett was a person of great respectability, and for several years 
was a member of the town council, before Providence was incorpo- 
rated as a city, and died after a long illness." 

His will, dated January 4, 1816, was proved September 18, 1832. 
He calls himself "Merchant," and mentions, besides his children, his 
"dutiful grandson, George Edwin Mouson."

Hon. David Daggett resided iu his native town until the fall of 
1779. In 1781 he went to New Haven and entered the junior class 
in Yale College two years in advance. He graduated iu 1783 with 
high honor. When he took his second or master's degree, he spoke 
an oration of such marked excellence that it received the honor, quite 
unusual in that day, of publication. 

Having a strong preference for the profession of the law, he com- 
menced, soon after leaving college, the study preparatory to that 
profession, with Charles Chauncey, Esq., of New Haven, and con- 
tinued till January, 1786, when he was admitted to the bar of New 
Haven county, at the age of twenty-one, and immediately entered 
upon practice iu the town. While pursuing his legal studies under 
Judge Chauncey, he supported himself by performing the duties of 
butler in college, and of preceptor in the Hopkins Grammar School. 

A few months after he was admitted to the bar, he was chosen to 
the office of tutor iu Yale College, which he declined, being eager to 
pui'sue the practice of the profession which he had chosen. 

Mr. Daggett was early called into political service. 

In 1701 he was chosen to represent the town of New Haveu in the 
General Assembly, and was annually reelected for six years till 1797,

when he was cboseu a member of the Couucil, or Upper House. 
Though oue of the youugest members of the House of Representatives, 
he soon became one of the most influential, and in 1794 he was 
chosen to preside over it as its speaker, at the early age of tweuty- 
nine. 

To this office he was elected year after year until he was chosen to 
the Council. 

Mr. Daggett retained his seat in the Council for seven years, until 
he resigned in 1804. 

In 1805 he was again a member of the House of Representatives. 
In 1801) he was again chosen a member of the Upper House, and con- 
tinued to hold a place in that body till May, 1813, when he was chosen 
a senator in the Congress of the United States for six years from the 
preceding fourth of March. In 1811 (June) he was appointed State's 
attorney for the county of New Haven, and continued in that office 
till he resigned it when chosen senator in 1813. 

At the close of his senatorial term in 1819, he returned to his 
extensive practice of law, which conduced much more to his private 
interest than had the public service of the State. 

In November, 1824, he became an associate instructor of the Law 
School iu New Haven, and in 1826 he was appointed Kent professor 
of law in Yale College. 

In these positions he continued until, at a very advanced age, his 
infirmities induced him to resign them. In the autumn of 1826 he 
received from the corporation of Yale College the honorary degree of 
LL.D. In May, 1826, he was chosen an associate judge of the 
Superior Court of the State of Connecticut. To this office he was 
appointed by a Legislatm-e iu which a decided majority were opposed 
to him in political principles and preferences. This fact is worthy of 
remark on account of its strong testimony to his preeminent fitness, 
at that time, for that high office, and also on account of the honorable 
testimony which it gives respecting his political opponents, — whom 
he never courted, and iu political conflict never spared, — that in the 
election to an office so resppnsible, so remote from political interests 
and strifes as that of a judge of the Supreme Court, they were willing 
to lay aside pai-tisan partialities, and to be controlled by a regard to 
superior intellectual, legal, and moral qualifications. During the 
years 1828 and 1829 he was mayor of the city of New Haven. 

In May, 1832, he was made chief justice of the Supreme Court. 
Here, again, was singular testimony to his preeminently judicial qualifi- 
cations ; for, contrary to the usual custom, he was appointed to that 
chief place notwithstanding the fact that he was not the senior in 
office among the judges on the bench. 

Judge Daggett continued to perform the duties of that station until 



156 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

December 31, 1834, when be reached seventy years of age, the limit 
which the Connecticut State Constitution assigns to the judicial 
oflfiee. 

The eminence of Judge Daggett in his profession, and among the 
public men of the State, is suflieiently attested by the many positions 
of high responsibility and trust in which he was placed by the 
guardians of Yale College, and by the people of New Haven and 
the State ; especially when we remember that the political party to 
which he belonged, which was dominant in the State tOl he was past 
middle life, and gave him the most of his honors, emlu'aced, con- 
fessedly, many of the most powerful and brilliant minds of the State ; . 
and if we remember also that some of the highest of these trusts were 
devolved upon him when his political opponents had come into power 
and his own party had passed into a minority. 

- The features of Judge Daggett's intellectual character, his quick 
and thorough insight, his well-balanced judgment and strong common 
sense, his quick and ready perception of fitness, his wit and humor, 
his power of varied and felicitous illustration, his ready memory, his 
energy of feeling, his concentration, his clear and nervous language, 
his practical knowledge of law, — these, joined to his qualities of 
person and manner, his tall and commanding form, always dressed 
carefully, richly, and in perfect taste, rising and dilating as he 
warmed with his subject, his large and piercing eye, his expressive 
brow, his strong-featured Roman face, his powerful voice rangmg 
through the whole scale, from a subdued yet distinct whisper till it 
sounded like a trumpet call, his utterance varying from solemn delib- 
eration to the vehemence of a torrent, — these qualities of mind, 
person, and manner made him an advocate who, in his best days, 
had, on the whole, no superior, if he had an equal, at the bar of 
Connecticut. 

He was a true and accomplished gentleman. He was in a very 
extraordinary degree polished in his manners, gracefully and 
scrupulously observant of all civilities. His courtesy was remark- 
able. 

The religious life of Judge Daggett began with the thorough train- 
ing which he received in his childhood and youth. This " nurture 
and admonition of the Lord," under the parental roof, and the 
memories and records of his pious ancestry, had a strong influence 
upon him. He commenced his active life with great respect for re- 
ligion and its ordinances. [Extract, Address Rev. S. W. S. Dutton,

Mr. Daggett was one of the original purchasers of the towuship of 
New Vineyard, Me., and drew his one hundred acres east of the New 
Vineyard mountains, in the first range adjoining the Lowell sti-ip, and 
was the first to commence operations for a settlement in that quarter. 

In June, 1791, he procured a back- load of provisions at the settle- 
ment at the river, now Farmington, and went to the gore by the 
path, where he got Mr. Collins to pilot him up the mountain to the 
town line, which had then been newly marked by spotted trees, with 
the corners of the lots marked, and numbered on the line. 

Thence he proceeded afoot and alone, with his pack on his back 
and his axe in his hand, noticing the numbers of the lots until he 
came to his lot, where he made a temporary camp near a spring, and 
commenced cutting down the trees to make a farm. He often said

Mr. Daggett built a log house, into which he moved the next year, 
and remained there three years, when he sold his new farm to Charles 
Luce, and moved on the Lowell strip, now Industry, IMe. 

He was an honest, well-meaning man, and worked hard as loug as 
he was able. 

He sold the farm which he made on the Lowell strip to David 
Luce, settled on a lot near bj', and then on a small lot near West's 
Mills. In his old age, he moved to the town of Parkman, where he 
died.

Mr. Daggett was well known in Pawtucket. For years he lived on 
what is known as the "Daggett farm," near the Ten-mile river, and 
his widow had resided there since his death. 

She was wont to say that she had " lived in three towns and two 
States, and not moved from the house." 

The farm was originally in Rehoboth, Mass., but when that town 
was divided, this portion of the town became Seekonk. Later 
Seekonk was divided, and this portion became the old town of Paw- 
tucket, in Massachusetts. In 18G3, when the boundary line between 
Rhode Island and Massachusetts was adjusted, Pawtucket was set off 
to Rhode Island, and thus she moved into another State. Since 
then she had seen the old town of Pawtucket annexed to a portion of 
North Providence, and became the new town of Pawtucket, and then 
the town made a city. Mrs. Daggett was a life-long member of the 
Pawtucket Congregational church.

Isaac Daggett is said to have been quite original, and his branch 
have quoted for the writer some of his impromptu verse, of whicli is 
the following : 

Amidst the wood bold Isaac stood. 

And gave his axe a wheel ; 
The boughs did bend, and the trees did rend, 

And off the bark would peel; 
The messmates gone, and the wheel went round, 

And you are left to keep the ground, 
And those lofty hills which we do spy. 
Are made to please the Almighty's eye : 
On us for sin to cast a stain. 
Go up the hill against the grain. 
Get up old Hoss. 



Jane West my true and loving wife. 
The joy and comfort of my life;

Hon. John Daggett was fitted for college at Wrentham Academy 
and entered Brown University in 1822, graduating in course in 1826. 
His law studies occupied three years : one year with Joseph L. Til- 
linghast, of Providence ; one year with J. J. Fiske, of Wrentham ; 
and one with Judge Theron Metcalf, of Dedham. He was admitted 
to the bar in Dedham in December, 1829, and immediately com- 
menced the practice of law in Attleboro', where he remained till his 
death. Without abandoning his profession, he filled various offices 
during his long life. For two years, 1833 and 1834, he was editor of 
the " Dedham Patriot." Mr. Daggett was a member of the Massa- 
chusetts House of Representatives for four years, 1836-1839 inclu- 
sive, and was again a member in 1866. He was a member of the 
Senate in 18.i0. He filled the office of register of probate of the 
county of Bristol eleven years, from 1850 to 1862, and he was also 
for many years chairman of the School Conmiittee in Attleboro'. He 
also found time for literary and historical studies. He published a 
little book called " Parris's Remains," which contained a memoir, to- 
gether with selections from the writings, of Samuel Parris, INI.D. 
[B.U., 1821]. 

Mr. Daggett was one of the constituent members of the Old Colony 
Historical Society, and for many years was its president. He was 
also a member of the New England Genealogical Society. His in- 
terest in inquu-ies and studies pertaining to the objects of these 
societies induced him to write and publish the history of his native

town, " Attleboio'," a task which he so worthily discharged as to win 
for him, with the respect and love of his townsmen, the name and 
influence of an authority in all that pertained to the annals of their 
town. It is a fact worthy of record and remembrance that from 
the year he entered college to the year of his death he was present 
at every commencement, attending thus sixty-three successive com- 
mencements. The "Bristol County Republican," under date of 
December 18, 1885, says of him : 

On the 10th of February last, there was a large gathering of relatives and 
friends to greet him on the advent of his octogenarian birthday, a day of con- 
gratulation to him and his esteemed wife. His gentle kindliness, courtesy, and 
integrity of character as a counsellor and friend — always to say a kind word, 
never a hard one — secured for him the title of honest John Daggett, which he 
Avore with his modest grace and merit from his college days, during these sixty 
years, to the time when death claimed him as a shining mark. He has passed 
away, J)ut his life-long deeds of kindness will live after him, and his memory as 
the Christian gentleman will ever be cherished. 

Mr. Daggett was much interested in the Doggett-Daggett geneal- 
ogy, and during his life made several collections of material to aid 
in such a work, and, together with Mr. Wm. E. Deane, tried to solve 
some of the obscure points in the early history of the family.

tional Church, New London, Conn. ; then retired and resided in 
Hartford, Conn. 

He had a reputation as a preacher of great brilliancy, who was not 
surpassed for magnetic power in the State. He particularly excelled 
in his command of a clear, graceful, and at the same time vigorous 
English style. In 1844 he removed to Canandaigua, in the State of 
New York, where for nearly a quarter of a century he endeared him- 
self to Christians of all denominations throughout western New 
York, by the cordiality with which he entered into efforts of all 
kinds, made for the benefit of the community. He was, perhaps 
by heredity, a conversationalist, like his grandfather, Dr. .ZEneas 
Muiison, whose name is remembered to this day for his brilliant 
qualities. 



204 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

Everything that Dr. Daggett said or did was marked by good 
taste, and by a cordial and friendly spirit. He was very quick to 
notice whatever was commendable in others, and was evidently 
delighted to express his interest and appreciation. AVith such a 
character, as might be expected, he was very lenient in his judg- 
ment of others, and it is doubtful whether he ever knowingly uttered 
a word which could hurt the feelings of even the most sensitive. 

In 1867, having been appointed a professor in Yale College, to 
preach in the college chapel, he returned to the home of his boyhood, 
where the cordial reception which he and his wife received was 
peculiarly gratifying. 

Mrs. Daggett received iu early life every advantage that education 
and acquaintance with the leading literary characters of New England 
could give. She had a serenity and dignity of manner which were 
peculiarly beautiful, and, though naturally somewhat reserved, she 
impressed all who knew her with her sincerity, and with her real 
friendliness of spirit.

gunboat " Louisiana." He was severely wounded during a boat ex- 
pedition October 5, 1861. He was the first officer of his grade

expedition while in the " Louisiana." At Newberne that vessel fired 
the first and the last shot of the action. Soon after the capture of 
Newberne he became the executive officer of the " Louisiana." At 
the time of the Confederate attack upon Wilmington, N.C., in Sep- 
tember, 1862, the ship was fought by Commander Hooker, in the 
absence of the commanding officer, in a manner which caused high 
commendation from commanding officers of our own forces. For 
gallantry on this occasion he was made acting volunteer lieutenant, 
to date from the d.iy of the action. He was then ordered to a com- 
mand in the blockade off Wilmington, and soon after to the command 
of a division of the Potomac flotilla, in which command he continued

Ebenezer," JoJin,^ Thomas,- John^), born Chesliii-e,,Couu., March 22, 
1816; died December 14, 1872. 

Johu Frederick Kensett was apprenticed to his uncle, Alfred Dag- 
gett, an engraver of bank-note vignettes. In 1840 he went to Eng- 
land, where he studied painting for five years, supporting himself by 
engraving. At that period he exhibited a view of Windsor Castle in 
the exhibition of the Society of British Artists, which was selected 
as the best in the collection. In 1850 he returned to New York and 
began a series of landscapes of mountain, river, and lake scenery 
of New York and the Eastern States, with marine views, which had 
eager purchasers. From this time onward his reputation and success 
as a landscape painter were great and assured. 

No artist was better known, and there is hardly an American art 
collection of note that does not contain one or more of his pictures. 

His works are highly esteemed in France, Belgium, and England, 
as well as in his native counti'y. 

In 1859 he was appointed a member of the " National Art Com- 
mission," and engaged to superintend the ornamentation of the 
national Capitol. His w-as one of the greatest and most evenly suc- 
cessful of artistic careers. He looked and was a perfect gentleman, 
of kindly sentiment and genial culture ; a friend to all good men, and 
an enemy to no one.

Issue : three children. 

A thoroughly representative Californian is Hon. John Daggett, of 
Siskiyou, one of the members of the Board of Conunissioners to the 
Columbian Exposition. 

Arriving in California before he had attained to majority, stalwart 
of frame, genial of disposition, noble in character, buoyant with 
hope, brave and vigorous in action, and withal industrious, it is not a 
matter of surprise to his contemporary friends of pioneer days that 
now, in the meridian of life, he is found a leader of men and a coun- 
sellor among the wise. He was educated at the high school in his 
native village, and left there in May, 1852, for California. 

Staying but a few days in San Francisco, where he landed, he went 
to Sacramento, where he was engineer in a steam llouriug-mill, but 
only for a short time, as the reports of the gold diggings which his 
friends brought him were so alluring that Mr. Daggett went to the 
mines, first in El Dorado county, and subsequently to Calaveras 
county, until the spring of 1853. From this time until June, 1854, 
he was with his brother David at Marysville, as foreman of his 
foundry and machine-shop. Mr. Daggett then decided to strike out 
again for the mines, and this time he selected northern California. 
Reaching Trinidad by vessel and finding the mines were remote from 
the coast, he stai'ted on foot with his blankets and provisions to last on 
the journey, over the roughest and wildest of trails, through a region 
traversed by Indians not very friendly to the white intruders, a dis- 
tance of one hundred and twenty-five miles, to a place now called 
Siskiyou county. Here he engaged in placer mining and black- 



JOHN DOGGETT, OF MARTHA'S VINEYARD. 263 

smithing imtil 1860, when the first gold-quartz mill was erected there 
and lie became its principal manager. 

In 1864 he went to Nevada and remained two years superintending 
silver mines and mills at Aurora, but returning to Siskiyou county in 
1866, he became one-third owner of the Black Bear quartz-mine, 
which, mainly through his management, became one of the most 
famous gold-producing mines in the State. 

In 1872 the Black Bear mine was sold to a syndicate for a large 
sum, was incorporated and for some time profitably worked, and then 
depreciated. Mr. Daggett, however, never lost faith in it, and began 
purchasing stock, until now (1891) he is owner of five-sixths of it. 
He has made extensive mining operations, which have opened upon 
ore bodies of great value and extent, which will again place the mine 
among the foremost of the State. 

Politically Mr. Daggett has ever been a Democrat, and now is a 
couspicuous figure iu the councUs of that party. In 1858 he was 
elected to the Assembly from Klamath and Del Norte counties, and 
iu that session was the youngest member of the House. Being re- 
turned the following year, he was made chairman of the Enrolling 
Committee, and toolv a prominent part in its proceedings. 

In 1880 he was again elected to the Legislature from the counties 
of Siskiyou and Modoc, and served two sessious, a regular and an 
extra session. 

In 1882 he was elected lieutenant-governor on the Democratic 
ticket, and presided over the Senate four sessions, — two regular 
and two extra, — the latter constituting one of the most exciting 
political periods in the history of the State. The Senate on both 
occasions was equally divided upon political and corporate legislation, 
which necessitated the exercise by the presiding officer of a casting vote 
iu numerous instances. Lieutenant-governor Daggett was an able 
presiding officer. A thorough parliamentarian, his rulings were 
quickly made and his decisions sustained. 

By his prompt methods, his clear conception of measures affect- 
ing the interests of the whole people, and his impartial course, in 
spite of partisan clamor, in averting the enactment of uuwise legisla- 
tion relating to transportation, he exhibited qualifications of superior 
state-craft ; and no scandal has ever been attached to his public acts. 

" Daggett" is a station on the Southern Pacific Railroad, named in 
his honor. 

Appointed May 17, 1893, to be superintendent of the United States 
Mint at San Francisco.

Thomas Doggett, of Marshfield, was previously a resident of 
Weymouth, and before that, of Concord, Mass. Of these facts the 
records now extant seem to offer sufficient evidence ; but of his life 
previous to arrival at Concord there is more uncertainty. Authori- 
ties on the subject express the opinion that Thomas who came in the 
" Marey Anne," in 1637, was the Thomas afterward of IMai-shfield, 
and finding no evidence to prove or disprove this theory, the writer 
has followed it as a possible truth. It is hoped that the points here 
made known may lead to positive proof of his parentage aud home 
in England. 



326 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMJLY. 

In the Eolls Office, iu London, Eug., is a small parchment volume 
occupied with a record of persons " desirous to passe beyond seas." 
It consists of hut sixteen written leaves, and much the greater 
portion of them is taken up with names of persons going into 
Holland. The several entries relating to those who came to New 
England are printed iu the N.E. Hist. Gen. Register, Vol. XIV., 
page 328. What is not destroyed of the title of the volume is : 

A Register of the 

of such persons a 

and upwards and have 

to passe into forraigne partes . . . 
March 1637 to the 29'ii day of Sept. 
by vertu of a commission granted to 
Mr Thomas Mayhew, gentleman. 

The people whose names are here recorded as bound for New 
England came, with but few exceptions, from the counties of Norfolk 
and Suffolk, England. They were very many of them cloth workers, 
of Norwich, others were " cordwayners," "coopers," " joyners," 
and a few were husbandmen. Some came in the "John and Dore- 
thay," of Ipswich, others in the " Rose," of Yarmouth, whUe " these 
people went to New England with William Goose, M' of the ' Marey 
Anne' of Yarmouth." 

May the 13, 1637. The examinaction of Thomas OUiuer of Norwich, 
Calinder,' ageed 36 yeares and Marey his wife, aged 34 yeares, with 2 children : 
Thomas and John and 2 seruants:* Thomas Doged aged 30 yeares and Marey 
Sape ageed 12 yeares ar desirous to passe for N.E. to inhabitt. 

Thomas Oliver settled in Salem, Mass., and Thomas Doggett may 
have stayed there in his employ long enough to pay for his passage 
to this country. 

It was a common thing for gentlemen of some means in leaving 
Elngland for America to take an apprentice or servant, paying the 
expenses of his passage, and after their arrival employing him to 
work to repay the amount. In this way many young and poor per- 
sons made their passage to this country. 

This being customary, men of distinction were enabled to escape 
to America as servants to those permitted to come, who would have 
been prevented if they had attempted to come in their- own name. 
Such was the strictness of the laws, and the. vigilance of the officers, 
that many found it necessary to resort to this means to accomplish 
their object. Possibly Thomas Doggett may have engtiged himself 

' Ciilendering is the last operation to which dyed and printed cottons are sometimes subjected 
to render the surface smooth, compact, and uniform. 

- The term '* servant," as used by the early settlei's, did not have the sense of a menial, but 
that of apprentice. They were immigrants whose passage was paid generally by some relative 
or friend in consideration of a stated term of service. 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 327 

to Thomas Oliver in order to obtain permission to leave England, for 
among those who wished to come in the same company was one John 
Yonge, a minister of " St. Margretts, vSuffolk," who, after he was 
examined and the answers recorded, was mentioned in the place of 
the date as — "This man was forbyde passage by the commissioners 
and went not from Yarmouth." Although this may have been Thomas 
Doggett's reason for thus calling himself, I am of the opinion he 
engaged himself as apprentice in order to pay his passage to New 
England, where he wished to come, either for religious freedom, or 
because he felt he could better his condition ; having much the same 
idea as a young man of the present day who leaves New England 
for the West. 

As there seem to be no evidences of property in his hands for 
several years after his arrival in New England, there is every reason 
to believe he was without means when he arrived. 

The exact date of the departure of the "Marey Anne" is not 
known, nor the length of her voyage ; neither is it known to what 
port she came, whether to Boston or Salem. Voyages across the 
Atlantic at that time took many weeks, so it was probably mid-sum- 
mer, 1637, when they first caught sight of the New England shores. 

Between this time and 1642 we lose sight of him, and it would be 
only conjecture to suggest where he may have lived during these 
years. 

In 1642, the 23d of the 6th month, the records of Concord, Mass., 
record the death of the wife of Thomas Doggett, but a search of the 
town records reveals nothing more regarding them. 

When or where he was married, or how long he had resided in 
Concord, is unknown. 

Even the Christian name of his wife has not been found, after much 
search ; or whether his oldest sou, John, who was born about this 
time, was her son, or a son by his second wife. I am inclined, how- 
ever, to believe him to be her sou, and born at Concord, Mass. 
Shattiick, in his history of Concord, after speaking of the death of 
Mrs. Thomas Doggett, says, " Mr. Doggett removed from town," so 
that our interest in Concord is in the period previous to 1642, wheu 
he was a resident there. 

Walcott, in "Concord in the Colonial Period," says: "Concord 
was the first settlement above tide water. 

"It adjoined the towns of Watertown, Cambridge Farms, and 
Sudbury, and is nineteen miles from Boston. 

" This tract of land, about six miles square, was occupied, in a 
sense, by two or three hundred Indians, and was called Musketaquid. 

" The meadows traversed by the sluggish rivers that ran by devious 
windings to the northward were bordered by tracts of upland that 



328 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

had been burned over and brought under rude pultivation by the 
natives, and afforded a large area of cleared land that was very 
attractive to the English settlers. The woodland was for the most 
part covered with pine. Shad, salmon, and alewives abounded in 
the rivers and brooks, which were also the haunts of fur-bearing 
animals." 

As the " Old Towne Booke of Concord " is lost, it cannot be told in 
what part of the town Thomas Doggett lived, whether he was granted 
or bought lands, when or to whom he sold the same, or what part he 
may have taken in the town affairs during his residence there. 

Walcott says : "It cannot be doubted that there once was a town 
book which contained the records of the earliest grants of land and 
probably the other proceedings of the inhabitants, meeting together in 
general assembly." '■ A book of this character is referred to in ancient 
deeds and other documents, as well as the records that remain to us." 
The church of Concord was formally gathered at Cambridge, July 5, 
1636, and was organized April 6, 1637, with Rev. Peter Bulkley as 
teacher, and Rev. John Jones pastor, and the town dates from the 
previous year. Mr. Bulkley and Mr. Flint had some property, but 
the rest of the Concord company were plain people, of humble station 
in England, and of small means, who hoped in the New World to 
better their condition, and to enjoy unmolested the simpler forms of 
religious worship that their tastes and consciences approved. Thomas 
Doggett may have been inclined to settle in Concord because John 
Doggett had been living in the adjoining town of Watertown for 
several years, and he would seem to have gone there more from this 
reason than because of any relatives or friends already there, when 
it is known that there is no reason to suppose that the Concord settlers 
ever came together on English soil. There was no transplanting of a 
church and its pastor, like the removal of John Robinson and his flock 
to Holland, or lUie the settlement of Plymouth and Dorchester. The 
first houses were humble structures with thatched roofs, and, very 
likely, wooden chimneys, oiled paper serving in place of window glass. 
Emerson says of them : 

" Beneath low hilla, in broad interval, 
Through which at will our Indian rivulet 
Winds mindful still of sannup and of squaw, 
Whose pipe and arrow oft the plo^igh unburies : 
Here in pine houses, built of new fallen trees, 
Supplanters of the tribe, the farmers dwell." 

It is impossible to overestimate the trials and actual suffering that 
were endured by the pioneer families. Here as elsewhere in the 
colony, a close grappling with the facts was followed by inevita- 
ble disappointment. The meadows were wet, the soil was found to 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 329 

require hard labor to make and keep it productive, aud it is written 
that the people were " forced to cut their bread very thin for a long- 
season." It cannot be wondered that some sickened and died by 
reason of the unaccustomed hardships and severity of the winter 
weather, while others lost all faith in the success of the enterprise, 
sold their estates for a little, and departed. 

Leaving Concord, Thomas Doggett removed to Weymouth, Mass., 
vthich is, next to Plymouth, the oldest English settlement in Massa- 
chusetts. Just when he moved there is not known, as there is a total 
absence of all church records for the first hundred and more years ; 
and the town records of births, marriages, and deaths are very 
incomplete. The property records are full aud well preserved, as 
well as the records of town affairs, which, until 1651, seem to have 
been kept by the townsmen, or selectmen, as since called. Wey- 
mouth, the old settlement of Wessagusset, was quite advanced in 
1642, as compared with Concord. 

lu 1 642 Rev. Samuel Newman was the minister, having been called 
to the church in Weymouth in 1639, where he remained four or five 
j'ears. He was followed by Rev. Thomas Thacher, who was ordained 
pastor of the church January 2, 1644, where he remained for about 
twenty years, when he removed to Boston. 

AVeymouth was more advanced than any other place in New Eng- 
land except Plymouth in having the priority as to the presence of a 
physician, Dr. Nicholas Byram, who came to Weymouth in 1638, 
aud remained there twenty-four years. The town is bounded on the 
east side by Hingham, on the west by Braintree, and has on the 
north a well-protected water frontage on an arm of Massachusetts 
bay, about twelve miles from Boston ; so it was considered a most 
desirable location at the time of the removal there of Thomas 
Doggett. 

Here it probably was he married, in 1643, as his second wife, 
Elizabeth, the widow of William Fry. William Fry had died here 
October 26, 1642, leaving a wife Elizabeth and daughters Elizabeth 
and Mary. His noncup. will is found in Suffolk Probate, 1-29, 
and was "deposed by Thomas Baily and John Barge before the 
Courte the 9 of the 9 mo. 1643." By it "he did give unto his wife 
after his decease his house and foure acres of land being his home lot 
aud after her decease to his two daughters Elizabeth and Mary," to 
both of whom he makes other bequests. Elizabeth Fry was born 
December 20, 1639, and Mary Fry was born January 9, 1642, prob- 
ably at Weymouth, as their father was a freeman and had twelve 
acres of land allotted to him there as early as 1636. 

Thomas Doggett by his marriage with Mrs. Fry became one of the 
proprietors of Weymouth, and the property records, which are not 



330 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

dated, but which were written at some time between his marriage and 
May 21, 1644, speak of his lands as : 

The Land of (tL ^ QvyLCu- -^HnM O^ 'luring the life of his wife and 
afterwards to W K ^^\ ^^'^^'^^^ Elizabeth and Mary ffrle the 
daughters of ' [J) William ffrie deceased. 

ffower acres in the west ffleUl first giuen to William ffrie bounded on the 
East with the land of Edward Smith and John Hardinge, the land of John 
Rogeres on the south, of John Whitman on the ni)rth, a highwaie on the south. 

Twelue acres amongst the greate lotes bounded on the East with the greate 
pond on the west with the corTion the north with the land of Thomas White of 
Robert Louell on the south. 

In the will of Elder Bate, Suffolk Probate, Book 11, page 13, SOth 
October, 1683, mention is made of " Doggett's lot," locating it at 
East Weymouth, near the Hiugham Hue. Here it was his children, 
Haunah, Sarah, and Samuel, were probably born ; but a careful search 
of the records at Weymouth gives no insight into his family affairs 
nor the dates of birth of his children. 

Between the time of the record of land in his name, 1643^, until 
1648, the records at Weymouth do not mention the name, but in 1648 
his fellow townsmen show theii- appreciation of his judgment and 
ability by electing him to the office of townsman or selectman. 

The following records of meetings of the townsmen are all that 
is contained in the Weymouth town books relating to Thomas 
Doggett :

At a meeting of the Townsmen it \ras ordered that Thomas Doggett should 
take care for the burning of the woods for wich he is to have due satisfaction. 

In 1652 Elizabeth, the second wife of Thomas Doggett, died, 
probably in Weymouth, and in the following year he changed his 
home for the last time, by moving to Marshfiekl, Mass. 

In an article on Marshfield. by "William T. Davis. Esq., in the 
•• Histoiy of Plymouth County." he says : " The town of Marshfield, 
together with Duxbury. its adjoining town on the south, shares with 
Plymouth the interest which attaches to the home of the Pilgrims. 
Its fertile lands and broad marshes early attracted the attention of 
the first settlers, and were eagerly sought for homesteads and farms. 
Watered by North river on its northerly border, by South river in its 
central section, and by Green's Harbor river in its southerly, its 
territory was admirably adapted to those agricultural pursuits which 
were the chief support of the Pilgrims. The township, slightly in- 
creased in size since its original incorporation, covers an area of about 
twenty-five square miles, and is bounded easterly by the ocean and 
the town of Duxbury ; southerly by Duxbury and Pembroke ; westerly 
by Duxbiu-y, Pembroke, and the North river ; and northerly by the 
North River and the ocean." This territory hns been called Missau- 
catueket. Oxford, Green's Harbor. Rexham, and Marshfield, was made 
a township March 2, 164^, and is about thirty miles south-east of 
Boston. Among the first settlers was Thomas ChUlingsworth, who 
was quite a prominent man in public matters. After a short residence 
at Lynn, in 1637, and afterward at Sandwich, he settled in Marsh- 
field. where he was a large landholder, and was representative 1648 
and 16.52. Administration on his estate was granted March. 1652—3, 
to his widow Joanna, who married August 17, 1654, Thomas Doggett. 

Mr. Chillings worth had four daughters, but no son. 

Elizabeth died unmanied. September 28, 1655. 

Mehitabel married May 2. 1661. Justus Eames. 

Mary married Deacon John Foster. 

Sarah married Samuel Sprague, the last secretary of Plymouth 
Colony. 

The Bible of Mr. Chillingsworth Miss Thomas mentions as still in 
existence, printed by Christopher Barker. ,1589. 

The maiden name of his wife is not known, nor the date or place of 
their marriage. 

The interest of Thomas Doggett in the widow Chillingsworth is 
first noticed in a record at Plymouth : 

The widow, Joan Chillingsworth, in like manner came into conrt 7 March 
1653 and acknowledged that she hath given unto her four daughters 10£ a piece 



TH0:MAS DOGGETT. of MAESHFIELD. 333 



to be delivered to them on their day of marriage or Tvithin three months after 
same and in case any of them die, the survivors to have their part divided 
equally between them' and for performance thereof Thomas Doged and the said 
Joane Chillingsvrorth have jointly given security to the court. 

•■ July 3, 1654. Upon desire of Arthur Howland for the ending of 
oontroversies regarding bounds of lands, that he and Thomas Doged 
be acquainted with the bounds of lands according to original grant." 

In 1655 Thomas Doggett serves on the jury at Plymouth, and 
October i of the same year : 

The court have ordered that Jlr. Arthur Howland and Thomas Doged shall 
procure a surveyor to lay out the land in controversy betwixt Thomas Doged and 
him who shall do it according to decision and testimony from Captain Standish 
and llr. Alden and to lay out the Une of division betwixt them according to the 
evidence and to return what is done unto the court and the charges thereof to be 
equally borne betwixt them. [Court Orders, 3-89.] 

May 6, 1656 — In answer to a petition preferred to the court by Thomas 
Doged' of Marshfield wherein the said Thomas Doged proposed that a Jury 
might be impannelled to make division of a certain part of land sold by Mr 
Edmond ffreeman of Cambridge Point unto Mr Arthur howland and Thomas 
Cliillingsworth deceased lying at the south bridge in the Town of Marshfield. 
The court have ordered there shall be a jury of 12 men that shall determine the 
laying out of the said land and shall fully end the controversy betwixt said 
Arthur howland and Thomas Doged about the said land the said jury to be 
impannelled at the next general court. [Court Orders, 3-97.] 

At the town meeting 1656, May 19, Thomas Dogget and John 
Rouse were chosen gTand jiu-ymen for the present year ensuing. 

June 18, 1656 an agreement was made in regard to the land in controversy, 
before Mr John Alden Cap' Cudworth and the Jury appointed, and the 
division line decided upon. The agreement was signed by Arthur howland 
and Thomas 'j- Doged 

his / marke. [Court Orders, 3-103.] 

At the town meetings May 18 and August 13, 1657, Thomas Dog- 
get was absent the first hour, and in each case was fined 6d. 

During this year Thomas Doggett took the oath of fidelity at 
Marshfield. 

November 16, 1657, town meetiug. Goodman Dogget aud John 
Rouse for gTand juryship, £1 . 

Rev. George Leonard says of this, iu a letter dated April 9, 1852, 
• • I have ah-eady transcribed about a thousand names, including repe- 
titions, to my list of town officers, aud this is the only instance iu 
which the title ■ Goodman ' ' is used." 

1658, October 11, town meeting, Thomas Dogget, Is. Od., being 
his town rate. This year he sen-es on a coroner's jui-y. 

The Rev. Edward Bulkley. son of Rev. Peter Bulkley, of Concord, 
was the pastor at Marshfield, and held an estate independent of the 
minister's land. His father dying in 1659, he succeeded him as pastor 
of the church at Concord, and was succeeded in the pastoral oflSce 
at Mai-shfield by Rev. Samuel Arnold, of Yarmouth. 

1 The term " goodman " was used as a sliirht appellation of civility- The Puritans, strictly 
speaking, gave the title " Goodman " to a specially prominent charcb-member of mature years. 



334 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

As the first volume of church records at Marshfield does not begin 
until 1696, there is an absence here as well as at Weymouth and 
Concord of all evidence to show what may have been the church 
relations of Thomas Doggett. 

At a town meeting May 16, 1659, he gave "one barrel of beef" 
toward the purchase of the lands of Mr. Bulkley iu Marshfield. 

May, 1659, ou the jury. 

He bought this year (1659) the farm to which he afterward re- 
moved, and which adjoined the farm of Peregrine White, near the 
junction of North and South rivers. 

Indenture made the 11"' day of October A.D. 1659 between Comfort Starr 
of Boston in County of Suffolk in New England, Cliirurgeon on the one part 
and Thomas Dogget of Marshfield on the other part. 120 acres in Marshfield with 
buildings thereon, the same being now leased to William Sherman and Edmond 
Hindsman. [O.C. Deeds, 6-23.] 

Comfort Starr deceased before the sale was completed, and among 
the amounts due the estate as recorded iu Suffolk Probate is one 
from " Good Doggett," as he is called.

The exact location of Thomas Doggett's house on this land is not 
known, but is presumed to be in a field back of a house now occu- 
pied by Capt. Asa Sherman, at Centre Marshfield. In this field, 
overlooking the marshes, the two rivers, and the ocean, on the side 
of the hill, yet protected by it, near a spring of clear, cold water, is an 
old cellar which the oldest inhabitants of the vicinity call the site of 
the " Doggett House." This and the fact that the cellar is on a line 
with the house of Peregrine White, and uot very far from it, both near 
the old highway, long since closed, would lead one to believe this was 
the site of the house of Thomas Doggett. The stones would indi- 
cate a house about thirty feet square, and a barn not far from it. 
Out on the marsh is an oasis of cedar trees, old and gnarled, called 
" Doggett's Cedars," and beyond, where the surf breaks on the 
beach, is "Doggett's Beach," names which have clung to the spot 
to the present time among a few of the older inhabitants. 

1660, May 14, Thomas Dogget chosen one of a jury. 

1660, July 15, at said town meeting the town have chosen Thomas 
Dogget constable, who then refused the taking the oath to serve as

about 1664. Thomas Dogget is named as the grantee of the 27th 
lot, the first at "Whetstone's Vineyard. 

In the papers at Plymouth, relating to the settlement of the estate 
of Thomas Bourn, whose will was dated May 2, 1664, the inventory

sive use of liquors, two or three men are appointed in every town in 
the jurisdiction of Plymouth, to have the inspection of the ordinary 
or in any other places suspected, and Thomas Doged is named .for 
Marshfield. 

In 1672, he begins the distribution of his estate among his children, 
by giving them land for house and farm just previous to their mar- 
riages. The first such gift is : 

April 20, 1672 7— Thomas Dogget of Marshfiekl, planter, to my well beloved 
son .John Dogget, one half of all my uplands and meadow which was formerly 
land of Comfort Starr deceased. [O.C. Deeds, 4-50.] 

Thomas Doggett owned a share in " Cedar Swamp," and October 
14, 1672, the swamp was divided in seven lots of five shares each, his 
share being one in the third lot. This swamp was in what was called 
" Majors Purchase." Windsor, in his " History of Dusbury," says, 
near " Mattekesett ponds, alias Namasakesett." The ponds thus 
named are that collection which now are within the bounds of Pem- 
broke and Hanson.

veyor. 

June 9, 1673, occurs the second instance of his giving land to his 
children, this tinie to liis son-in-law, Samuel Sherman, in considera- 
tion of his marriage with his daughter Sarah. [O.C. Deeds, 4-90.] 
The original deed was shown the writer by one of the descendants of 
Samuel Sherman, it having been handed down and always highly 
valued by its possessor.

my son William to be my executor and request Thomas Doggett if 
God so dispose that he survive my wife to be my overseer." 

May 30, 1677. An agreement is made regarding a division of land 
granted at a meeting at Marshfield. The whole tract is divided into 
six lots, of which the second lot falls to Peregrine White, Thomas 
Dogget, William Ford, Justus Fames, John Dogget, Samuel Sher- 
man, and John Ford, Sen. [O.C. Deeds, .6-114.]

THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 337 

Stevens, his land formerly granted and then it is to be recorded and 
also fully committed to him and his heirs forever." 

During this year he was appointed to enforce the liquor law. 

March 20, 1681. He makes an agreement with his son John re- 
garding the division of lands which he had formerly given him, and 
on the same date gives land to his son Samuel, making the third in- 
stance of gifts of this natm-e to his children. 

An extract of this last deed is as follows : 

March 20 1681 Thomas Dogget of Marshfield, in consideration of the 
tender love and fatherly affection which I hare and bear to my natural and well 
beloved son Samuel Dogget of Marshfleld, one half of all my lands in iVIiddle- 
boro and places adjacent which said share of land formerly purchased of William 
Twining of Eastham as by deed Mar. 7, 1671. [O.C. Deeds, 6-27.] 

On the same date he gives his son John Doggett the other half of 
land in Middleboro' ; also gives him land in the valley in Marshfleld. 

1682, May 22. At the town meeting Thomas Doggett is men- 
tioned for the last time on the records of the town of Marshfleld, and 
is chosen surveyor of highways. 

Feb. 6, 1C83 — Thomas Dogget of Marshfleld in the Colony of New Ply- 
mouth in New England, sendeth greeting. In consideration of the love and 
fatherly affection I have for my natural and loving son Samuel Dogget .as also 
for divers other good causes All my land both upland and meadow which I now 
have in Marshfleld, that is to say more particularly the moiety of all that farm 
that I formerly purchased of Mr Comfort Starr being that part of said farm 
whereon I now live according as it is marked 40 and bounded between my son 
John Dogget and myself as may appear by indenture of part under our hands 
and seals, reserving the use during life, also all that tract of land purchased of 
Lent Peregrine White lying north of a great brook next adjoining to the 
southerly part of my other meadows with the same reserved, with the moiety 
of one half part of the land granted to me and others of my neighbors at the 
heads of our lots by the town aforesaid. [O.C. Deeds, 6-2G.] 

June 3, 1684. The coui-t named him as constable for Marshfleld. 
Retired from active pursuits and positions of public trust, with his 
lands distributed among his children, the records examined do not 
show that he is again mentioned, and during the remaining years of 
his long and busy life we think of him iu the words of Mrs. 
Sigourney : 

" While moving on thro' Marshfleld's vales. 
Mid the balm of her summer breeze. 
With a peaceful smile on his houor'd brow, 

A fair old man she sees : 
Full many a change in the Mother Land, 

From the cottage to the throne, 
As well as here, in tliis younger sphere. 
That reverend sire hath known." 

He died August 18, 1692, and is supposed to have been buried 
among his feUow-townsmen, in the old Fu-st Burial Ground, some- 
times called the Winslow Ground, among whose honored dead Daniel 
Webster, by his special request, was interred.

but among those which can be read none has been found to mark the 
spot where Thomas Doggett lies.

John Doggett spent the greater part of his life in Marshfield. 

In 1662 he was in Hingham, where he witnessed an Indian deed. 

AprU 20, 1672, his father gives him one-half of the home-farm in 
Marshfield, and on May 13, of the same year, he is admitted a towns-

In 1677, May 30, his landed estate is increased by the addition of 
land allotted to certain proprietors by the town, and again, in 168|, 
March 20, by the gift from his father of land in Middleboro' and 
Marshfield. 

The town records show that he was interested in town affairs, and 
chosen by the town in 1682 as constable. In 1684 he was made sur- 
veyor of the highways, and August 4, of the same year, had distributed 
rate as constable.

April 1, 1686, he purchased from Justus Eames for £10 land 
adjoining the head of his house-lot and that of his father ; Peregrine 
White and Samuel Sherman being witnesses to the deed. [Plymouth 
Deeds, 6-31.] 

On August 2, 1686, he and his brother Samuel hired the flats on 
the South river of the town, for that year, probably for the salt hay 
which they could cut there, as he was, like his father, a planter or 
husbandman. June, 1689, he was received and admitted as freeman 
at a court at Plymouth. 

May 18, 1691, he was chosen grand juryman. In 1692 a jury, 
consisting of John Rogers, Thomas Macomber, John Foster, John 
Hewett, John Rose, John Barker, John Doggett, Joseph Water- 
man, Isaac Holmes, Anthony Eames, Ephraim Little, Michael 
Ford, Joseph Crocker, John Thomas, and Nathaniel Thomas, Jr., 
laid out the highways of the town as follows :

said town as are needful according as the law directed, in order thereunto having 
met together on the sixteenth day of June aforesaid, do declare as followeth :

been lately dug, and so on the old way through the land of Ensign Ford, 
Anthony Eames, and Samuel Sprague, and so over the brook as the way now 
leadeth between the house and shop of John Foster, and so through the land of 
Arthur Rowland as the way now lieth until it come to John Walker's Land, and

into the other way. 

July 28, 1692, again chosen surveyor of the highways, and the fol- 
lowing year, March 20, to the same office, and the additional one of 
viewer of fences. As grand juror, at the same meeting he receives 
from the town 15s. for his services. 

In those days the tithingman was an all-important personage ; he 
was a parish officer who presei-ved order at public worship, and 
enforced the observance of the Sabbath. 

For three successive years John Doggett filled this office, he being 
chosen thereto March 10, 169|, March 11, 169f, and March 16, 169f. 

From the first volume of records of the first church in iMarshfield :

the first division, and No. 38 in the second division. 

The exact date of death of John Doggett is not known, neither is

Thomas Blanchard, who was the ancestor of the larger part of the 
New England families of the name of Blanchard, came from London 
in the year 1639. It is supposed he settled in Braintree, Mass., 
where he is known to have lived from 1646 to 1651. In 1651 he 
purchased a house and farm of two hundred acres, on Mystic side, 
Charlestown. Mass., to which place he removed the same year, and 
where he died 1654. His sou Nathaniel, born in England 1636, mar- 
ried 1658, in Charlestown, Susanna Bates, and removed to Weymouth, 
Mass. (Hobart's History of Abington, 1866.) An older son, Samuel 
Blanchard, of Charlestown, was constable 1657, and admitted to the 
chui-ch, 25 (7) 1681. 

An old manuscript book, the property of Mr. Abel Blanchard, of 
Andover, Mass. (now, 1869, with the Bible Society, Astor place. New 
York) , is in the handwriting of several parties, but evidently com- 
menced by the first Samuel Blanchard, of Andover. 

In this book he says : " Samuel Blanchard was married to his wife 
Mary (Sweetser") in the year 165| upon the 3rd day of January." 
They had Samuel, Sarah, 3Iary, Jonathan, Joshua, and Abigail. 
Following the list of children is :

"My mother Hannah Blanchard departed this life July 10, 1725, 
and as wee reseve it, in the 79"" year of her age." 

George D. B. Blanchard, Esq., of Maiden, Mass., writes from that 
place as follows, regarding Hannah (Doggett) Blanchard : 

"After her marriage, which evidently took place at Charlestown, 
she lived thirteen years within a short distance from the spot where I 
am now writing, and I can see plainly from my window the ground 
where her home was, and where all of her children were born. They 
all lived till maturity, and I have a pretty fuU record of each one of 
them, three sous and a daughter Hannah, named for her. 

"She (the mother) died in 1725, aud among her descendants are 
some worthy names. 

"I visited her grave at Andover in 1863, aud copied at that time 
the inscription upon the headstone, as follows : 

" ' Here Lyes ye Body of Mrs Hannah 
Blanchard Relict of Mr Samuel 
Blanchard Who Deo'd July 10* 1725 
in ye 79th . . . f Her Age.' 

"The stone was then broken, the upper part of it lying on the 
ground, but all the lettering could be read except what I have marked."

called " Doggetts Cedars," to Cornelius White. [Plymouth Deeds,

Court at Plymouth, first Tuesday of this inst. March.

cost when ascertained, 21£ 4s 6d. 

October 13, 1736. He buys of Thomas Phillips the fifty-fifth lot 
in second division of Marshfield. [Plymouth Deeds, 31-88.] 

Living in Marshfield all his life, with his occupation that of a 
farmer, there is some reason to think he may have also been interested 
in the shipping interests on the North river, which during his life- 
time began to increase. In 1736 occurred the death of his youngest 
daughter, which is mentioned in a short letter from James Barker, 
who married Bethiah Ford, a sister of Experience Doggett, dated at 
Lebanon, November 12, 1736, in w^hich he says to Brother Doggett 
that his daughter Experience died of the prevailing sickness there. 
This daughter Experience was baptized at the First Church in Marsh- 
field, August 1, 1714. 

His death occurred at Marshfield, January 5, 173f , and his remains 
were deposited in the Cedar Grove Cemetery, about twenty-eight feet 
back of his uncle Samuel, and a few feet farther from the road. 

His first wife was buried next to the grave in front of his, and 
then- gravestones, in excellent preservation, are of slate stone, and 
inscribed as follows :

The records at Marshfield do not mention Samuel Doggett, until we 
find the record of his marriage to Bethia Waterman. She belonged to 
that family of Waterman of whom we read in ' ' We and our Kins- 
folk " : "We have it by tradition that the Waterman family came 
from Germany to Wales, and from Wales to Norwich, England.'' 
" Many hundred years ago they were famous seamen." " Robert, who 
was at Salem 1636, at Plymouth 1638, and at Marshfield 1642, true 
to the family tradition, did more or less business on the deep." " He 
married 16.38, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Bourne, and at his death 
in 1653 left, under the guardianship of Anthony Snow and his uncle 
Josias Winslow, three sons, John, Joseph, and Robert." Joseph 
married the daughter of his guardian, and was the father of Bethia, 
who married Samuel Doggett. Joseph Waterman's will, dated August 
6, 1709, proved March 12, 1710, shows he left an estate valued at 
£2,500, of which his daughter Bethia received £100. 

October 9, 1710. At a meeting of the proprietors of Marshfield, 
Samuel Doggett, Jr., drew lot No. 55 in the first division, and No. 57 
in the second division, and thus became a landholder in his native 
town. 

Whether his connection with the Waterman family had an infiuence 
in his choice of a vocation, or whether the growth of the business of 
shipbuilding drew his attention to the sea, is not known ; but we find 
him the first of the family to follow the callings suggested in the fol- 
lowing extracts : 

Jan 1, 1710/11 Samuel Doggett Jr of Marslifleld "boatman" buys of 
Joshua Gushing for 323£, piece of upland containing 30 acres and salt marsh 
containing 5 acres, -vi-ith all the housing, out housing buildings and orchards, 
bounded on the north by the North river, beginning at " Ye mouth of ye great 
creek." [Plymouth Deeds, 8-105.] 

Jan 26, 1710 Samuel Doggett Jr of Marshfield "Mariner" for 3n£ paid by 
James Gardner of Marshfield 2 lots of land in Marshfield adjacent to Fuddcr 
Wharf Brook, about 50 acres. [Plymouth Deeds, 10-605.] 

The first deed is probably that of the land on which he lived during 
the rest of the time he made Marshfield 'his home ; it is located near 
East Marshfield, and now called Bryant's pasture. 

On the upland, not far from the river, are some old apple-trees and 
the walls of an ancient cellar, which was surrounded by bushes and 
small trees in 1886, and supposed to be the site of his house. 

The view from this spot overlooking the river is one of quiet, restful 
beauty, and it is difficult to picture it as it looked in former days. 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 357 

when, as we read in the " History of Plymouth County," it was the 
scene of busy industry. The North river, which forms the boundary 
of a portion of Marshiield in its winding way of twenty miles through 
the meadows, from Ludden's ford to the sea, is one of surpassing 
beauty. The tide rose and fell many feet, while its banks were lined 
with shipyards, and more shipbuilding was carried on here than upon 
any other river in New England. At Little's bridge, once Doggett's 
ferry, vessels were built at one time on the Marshfield side of the 
river. Below this point the river expands greatly in width, the salt 
meadows form a vast expanse, and the scenery takes on grand pro- 
portions of beauty. The river near its mouth between that and the 
P'ourth Cliff was sometimes called New Harbor, and vessels wintered 
there from earliest times. 

Commerce with the West Indies has been carried on from thence, 
and there is reason to believe that Samuel Doggett was one of those 
interested in that trade. 

December 10, 1711. Town meeting : Samuel Doggett, Jr., on a 
jury of trials at the next Inferior Court at Plymouth, third Tuesday 
of the list. 

In an account book of Arthur Howland, now (1888) in possession 
of Miss Thomas, of Marshfield, under date July 24, 1714, — charge 
to Samuel Doggett for writing a bond, bill of sale, and five bonds, 
settled by paper, jack-knife, logwood, copper. 

February 21, 17fi. Town meeting: He was chosen on jury of 
trial at next Inferior Court at Plymouth. 

March 20, 17-^f. Town meeting: Samuel Doggett, Jr., Constable. 
In the will of John Rogers, of Marshfield, dated May 9, 1718 
(Plymouth Probate, 4-130), is the following: 

" Item I give to my grandson Samuel Doggett 20£ in money to be 
paid him within two years after my decease." 
March 23, 172f . On trial jury. 

May 16, 1726. Town meeting: "Voted and agreed with Samuel 
Doggett to keep the town stock of ammunition, and to make it good 
whenever the town shall demand it of him, and the town to allow him 
10s. a year for the keeping the same." 
September 7, 1726. On the jury. 

March 27, 1727, Samuel Doggett chosen one of the selectmen of 
Marshfield. February 24, 172|, on grand jury. March 25, 172f, 
Samuel Doggett, tithingman, and on the same date grand juryman. 

During these years Samuel Doggett had been extending his busi- 
ness relations, and his vessels, either commanded by himself or those 
in his employ, sailed from the North river or the port of Boston, in 
the co:i8ting trade, and also across the Atlantic. At that time the 
territory now comprised in the State of Maine was attracting attention 



358 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

as a new settlement, and a number of Boston capitalists, securing a 
tract of land, formed the Wiscasset Company, which settled the 
town now bearing that name. 

Samuel Doggett was interested in the settlement of the territory ; 
and : 

Feb 8, 1730 At a meeting of the Wiscasset Projirietors at the Royal Ex- 
change Boston. 

Voted Mr Samuel Doggett, Twenty five acres of linrl in the 2nd division 
for every family that he shall settle on our land at Sheepscot within the term of 
24 months from this time to the number of 40 families which settlements shall 
be agreeable to our articles of agreement. Above 25 acres of Land is given as a 
gratuity for all the charge and trouble tlie said Doggett is or shall be at, in set- 
tling the same. 

Jan IS, 1731 Voted Mr Samuel Doggett to get a good surveyor to lay out 
the above township directly at the charge of the Proprietors. 

Jan 11, 173f Voted Mr Samuel Doggett and Mr Andrew Tyler to go to 
the Records in order to compare Robert's deeds with ours. Voted to lay out 
the 74, hundred acre lots, according to the discretion of Mr Samuel Doggett. 

1738 At a meeting held, the lots which have been laid out are drawn. 
Samuel Doggett, 1 lot. 

Feb 22 173t He pays 53£ for land at Sheepscott. 

April 13, 1730. Samuel Doggett, " yeoman," buys of Daniel Mac- 
Lucas, of Pembroke, two lots containing about thirty acres. [Ply- 
mouth Deeds, 25-218.] 

The growing interest in the vicinity of Sheepscott river evidently 
made that a promising iield for investment. 

Nov 2, 1730, Samuel Doggett of Marshfield, mariner, buys of Jonathan 
Loring of Boston, currier for 25£ one full 64* part of all that land called 
George Davies Right of land in Sheepscott River, reference being had to the 
several Indian Deeds for bounderies. [York Deeds, 20-158.] 

Nov 2, 1730 He .also buys another 64th part of the same tract from John 
Burt of Boston, Goldsmith, for the same amount. [York Deeds, 20-158.] 

January 25, 1731. lu Arthur Rowlands account book, already 
referred to, he says: "This day paid Samuel Doggett all I owed 
him on my own account and all that was due him on M. Eames her 
account." 

The residents at East and North Marshfield were rather distant 
from the church, and this led to a demand for a church nearer home. 
In 1730 several, among whom was Samuel Doggett, were members 
who paid for preaching at North Marshfield, as appears from a paper 
in possession of Miss Thomas. 

The first church records show: " Nov. 7, 1731 — Bethia wife of 
Samuel Doggett taken into the church at Marshfield." 

March 24, 1734. Marshfield town meeting: Samuel Doggett 
chosen town treasurer. 

The treasurer's account-book kept by Samuel Doggett when in that 
office, now (1885) in the possession of Miss Thomas, shows entries 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MAESHFIELD. 359 

in his handwiitiug beginning February 7, 1734, and extending 

through the year 1739. 

March 22, 173f, I , ^^ .^ , 

M • h 21 17S6 1 ^^i^^i^^^ Doggett chosen town treasurer. 

May 10, 1737 Voted — That the sums hereafter mentioned be raised by way 
of rate and paid to the persons hereafter named as followeth, 

To Mr Samuel Doggett for keeping of Joseph Rose and his wife 25 £ Os Od. 

March 27, 1738. Samuel Doggett was chosen town treasurer, who 
accepted of said trust, and in open meeting agreed with the town to 
serve in that office for 30s. this year. 

May 22, 1738. Voted that the selectmen be desired to make up 
the town accounts with Mr. Samuel Doggett, their treasurer. 

March 1, 173|. Samuel Doggett town treasurer. 

May 14, 1739 — Samuel Doggett and Jedidiah Bourne were chosen and ap- 
pointed agreeably to Province Law to serve on the Jury of Trials at the next 
Court of Session of the Peace and Inferior Court of Common Pleas to be held at 
Plymouth on the third Tuesday of May instant. 

May 21, 1739, Samuel Doggett for being treasurer four years last 
past at 30s. = £6. 

May 25, 1741. Voted, To allow to Samuel Doggett £1 10s. Od. 
for his service as town treasurer, 1739. 

The growth of Boston and the consequent centring of business 
interests there made it necessary that Samuel Doggett, with his in- 
terest in shipping, should be there much of the time. 

In making voyages himself he would naturally start and return 
there, and this probably decided him to leave his native town aud 
make his home in Boston. 

The first move in that du-ection we find in the sale of his lauds in 
Marshfield, April 19, 1742. The deed (Plymouth Deeds, 35-80) 



Samuel Doggett of Marshtield, yeoman for 1800£ paid by Seth Bryant of 
Scituate, shipwright all that my farm whereon I now dwell in Marshtield con- 
taining about 60 acres of upland and meadow land lying on both sides the high- 
way, bounded partly to the North River on the N., the highway that goes 
from said river toward the Precinct Meeting House to the E : another lot of 6 
acres near the south end of the farm : the 20"' lot in the !«' Division ; the 35"» and 
45* lots in the 2"^ Division of Marshfield 



After the sale of the estate in Marshfield it appears they still lived 
there for two years, at which time Mrs. Doggett came to Boston. By 
a law which obliged every one moving to Boston to prove they should 
not become a charge on the town, we are enabled to show just when 
Mrs. Doggett came to Boston. 

In the Boston Selectmen's Minutes, p. 101, report of meeting June 
6, 1744: 



360 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

Mrs Bethia Doggett from Marshfield lodges at Mr Wheelers, has been in 
Town about 25 Days. Ordered That She be Warned to depart the Town 
in Fourteen Days unless She give Security to Indemnify the Town from any 
Charge upon her Ace' as the Law directs. 

About this time (1744) arrangements were being made by the 
Province of Massachusetts Bay to make an expedition against Louis- 
burg, and among the vessels engaged by the government to aid in 
the attack were those of Samuel Doggett. The expedition sailed 
from Boston, bearing three thousand men, to attack a stronghold 
which had been called the Gibraltar of America, and whose very 
fortifications were said to have cost five million dollars. On April 
30, 1745, the fleet, with additions from England, New Hampshire, and 
Connecticut, came in sight of Louisburg, and found its strength not 
exaggerated. The walls were twenty or thirty feet high and forty 
feet thick, surrounded by a ditch eighty feet wide, defended by one 
hundred and eighty-three pieces of artillery, besides sixty more in the 
two outlying batteries. 

For six weeks Louisburg was besieged, and on Juue 17 the fort 
siu-rendered. 

Voltaire, in his " SiMe de Louis XV.," ranks among the great 
events of the period this capture of a strong fortress by the husband- 
men of New England. In the Massachusetts State Archives, Vol. 
LXXIL, p. 778, is found: 

Account of the charge of the transport vessels employed in his Majesties Ser- 
vice in the expedition against Cape Breton, and for the service of his Majestys 
Garrison at Louisburg exclusive of such as were Laden with stores, by express 
orders from the Admiral and General. 

Among the list of vessels : 

Sloop Dolphin, S. Doggett, master — 6 men — time of entry Feb 18, 1745, 
discharge Nov 28, sailors wages 102£ 9s 7d, hire of vessel 169£ 13s Od. 

Whether the sloop Dolphin returned to Boston previous to the time 
of her discharge has not been ascertained, but it is probable Samuel 
Doggett was in Boston when he died, in September, 1745. 

The Boston papers of September 23 mention the arrival of sixty 
sick men from Louisburg on September 19, and it may have been 
Samuel Doggett was one of the number. 

The family were then living in Boston; between King street (now 
State street) and Dock square, and here it is probable he died. 

His estate paid for a gravestone, but it has not been located, so 
it is not known exactly when he died or where he was buried, and the 
city or church records examined contain no uote to assist in the 
search. His widow Bethia died the following year, and was buried 
in the Granary Burial-ground, in Boston, where a stone erected to her

contain no return of administration on said estate by Kenelm Winslow.

3631. vi. Elizabeth Doggett,^ born Marshfield, Mass., May 14, 1738. 

Ebenezer Doggett was baptized September 27, 1702, at the Fii-st 
Church in Marshfield. Like his brother Samuel, he is called at dif- 
ferent times "yeoman" and "mariner." Early Boston newspapers 
mention his sailing from that port to the Caroliuas and to New- 
foundland, and it is probable he made voyages to the West Indies 
and possibly across the Atlantic. Captain Doggett married a Ply- 
mouth lady for his first wife, and made his home in Plymouth, where 
he bought of Ignatius Gushing (husband of Mrs. Doggett's sister) a 
dwelling-house, which Mr. Cushing had just built. 

The house was deeded to him May 16, 1720, and in the deed Cap- 
tain Doggett is called " late of Marshfield, now of Pljmiouth." 
[Plymouth Deeds, 15-27.] 

This house he made his home until after his second marriage, when 
he removed to Marshfield, sometime between December 14, 1734, and 
May 14, 1738, and sold the house to Thomas Foster, February 3, 
1743, for £230, and with it his pew in the meeting-house in Plymouth. 
[Plymouth Deeds, 36-103.] 

This pew had been hired May 26, 1740, by Samuel Clarke, of 
Plymouth. [Plymouth Deeds, 34-218.] 

The Doggett house, after being owned and occupied by many 
Plymouth families, became the property of Mr. Chas. T. Holmes, of 
Plymouth, who had it torn down during the winter of 1884-5. Dur- 
ing the previous summer it was my privilege to see the house, which 



364 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

had retained its original style and finish, and was located on the 
town square, the lot having adjoined the town house. The house 
set back about twenty feet from the square, the front toward the 
town house, and overlooking the bay. Entering the front door, the 
hall was found to be of good size, and the sides dadoed to a height of 
about four feet, with panels which divided the space above the base- 
board into a series of small square panels over the same number of 
long ones. The parlor on the right, which was rather higher studded 
than the rest of the ground floor, was about eight feet high, and con- 
tained an open fireplace, high dado, and windows looking toward the 
square and the water. The next room of importance, the kitchen or 
living-room, was of large size, and entered from the end of the hall or 
from the other rooms. 

Here was the large fireplace, and in the back the iron Hreback, on 
which was the English coat of arms. 

This flreback weighs one hundred and fifty-seven pounds, is about 
three feet long, supposed to have been cast in England, and is now 
in the possession of the writer. The quaint staircase, the panelling, 
the small window-panes, all attracted one's attention, and the second 
story was as interesting as the first. 

Augusts, 1727. Ebenezer Doggett bought of his brother, Isaac 
Doggett, his interest in the estate of their father, Samuel Doggett. 
[Plymouth Deeds, 22-72.] 

As Seth Doggett died without issue, Ebenezer became possessed of 
the real estate of his father, according to the will, and with his mother 
began the sale of the Marshfield and Pembroke lands. Ten transfers 
were made by him, which are recorded in Plymouth county, between 
1734 and 1745, besides the purchase and sale of his house in the 
town of Plymouth, previously mentioned. In all there is deeded 
fully two hundred and fifty acres of land, amounting to about 
£1,400. 

The town records of IMarshfield contain only the following items 
regarding Captain Doggett, and it does not appear that he held any 
offices in the town during his residence there : 

" March 1, 173f. Chosen to serve on the Grand Jury on Tuesday 
preceding the last Tuesday of April. 

"March 29, 1742. Chosen to serve on the Grand Jury at Ply- 
mouth 2'"' Tuesday of April next. 

"June 28, 1742. Chosen on Grand Jury at the Superior Court at 
Plymouth 2°'' Tuesday in July next." 

After the final sale of land in Marshfield on November 5, 1745, 
Captain Doggett probably soon removed to Boston as more central 
for a place of residence, and as it was the port from which he had 
sailed as early as 1727, and possibly before.

During the following year he died, but the exact date of his death 
has not been found. 

His widow, Desire Doggett, and his son, John Doggett, were ap- 
pointed administrators of his estate, Boston, December 9, 1746.

3640. vii. Bathsheba Doggett," born Lebanon, Conn., January 3, 173f. 

The church records of Marshfield include among the children of 
Samuel Doggett, who were baptized September 27, 1702, his son, 
John Doggett. His boj'hood was spent in Marshfield, but as a 
young man he went first to Rochester, Mass. 

Among the early settlers of Rochester, Mass., were Rev. Samuel 
Arnold and Abraham Holmes, both relatives of John Doggett. 
There were also other Marshfield people who had settled there, and 
this fact doubtless led him to first seek his home among them. A 
search of the town records of Rochester does not show any particulars 
of his residence there. A broolc which runs through the town has 
the name " Doggett's brook," but it is not known for whom it was 
named, although, as he was probably the earliest settler of the name, 
it may have been so called because of his living in the vicinity. 

It is not known when he went to Rochester, but the record of 
his marriage at Marshfield, in 1719, calls him John Doggett, of 
Rochester. 

How long he remained in Rochester after his marriage is also un- 
certain ; but his two oldest children, Mary and Samuel, were born in 
Marshfield, the latter in 1723. 

Soon after the birth of Samuel he removed to Lebanon, Conn., and 
it is an interesting fact that he had his marriage recorded in that town, 
as well as the birth of his two children, who were boru in Marshfield. 
The record in Lebanon agrees with that in Marshfield in every par- 
ticular, excepting the name of his wife, who in Lebanon is called 
Ames, instead of Eames. 

Walter G. Kingsley, Esq., of Lebanon, writes (1888) the name is 
usually spelled "Dogget" on the records at Lebanon; and he also 
says in regard to the children and descendants calling the name 
Daggett that he was told about thirty-five j'ears ago, whOe teaching 
in Bolton, that " the name was only a change from Dogget to 



The earliest conveyance of real estate to him occurred September 
16, 1725, and he was then described as of Lebanon, and continued 
to make purchases of land until about 1750 or 1760. 

The locality where the family owned farms was very close to the 
town limits of both Coventry and Hebron. 

From the Lebanon town-meeting records, "John Doged appointed 
constable Dec 4, 1727," but no subsequent appointment to office. 



3G8 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

The church records show that John and his wife united with the 
Second Society in 1727 (this parish in 1806 became an incorporated 
town, "Columbia"). 

A rate bill for the North Parish of Lebanon (now Columbia) for 
the year 1741, which was made to pay the salary of the minister, and 
dated December, 1741, shows the whole amount raised £330 16s. 9d., 
of which "John Dogit paid £3 9s 2d." 

The will of Samuel Doggett, of Marshfleld, gives his sou, John 
Doggett, thirty-eight acres of laud in Middleboro', " being ye lot in 
16 shilling purchase," and from the records at Plymouth we find the 
sale of this lot as follows: "John Doggett of the Town of Lebanon 
in County Windham in Connecticut in New England for 25£ paid by 
John Booth of Middleboro in County Plymouth, sells him 38 acres 
land in 16 shilling purchase in Middleboro, laid out originally to 
Thomas Doggett No. 104 lot. Oct 8, 1736." [Plymouth Deeds, 
30-210.] 

In the Windham Probate District, at Willimantic, Conn., is recorded 
the will of Dea. John Doggett, Vol. VI., page 503, as follows: 

In tlie name of God Amen, the 10th day of Feb. A.D. 176-t. I, Joliii Doggett 
of Lebanon in the County of Windham, and Colony of Conn, in New England 
being -n-eak and in a lov declining state of body, of a disposing mind and mem- 
ory, thanks be given to God. Therefore, Calling into minde the mortality of 
my body and knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die, do make and 
ordain this my Last will and testament (that is to say) . Principally and first of 
all, I give and recomend my soul into the hands of God that gave it, and my 
body I recomend to the earth to be buried in decent Christian burial at the Disie-

At said meeting voted that Isaae Dogget and eleven others, these or so many 
suitable persons have liberty to banister the back seat of the men's end gallery 
so that they do not raise it higher than that in the front and that there be so 
many owners at least constantly belonging to it. 

Isaac Doggett, like his older brothers, is called both "mariner" 
and " yeoman," the first being his occupation when he lived at 
Marshfield, and the latter after he had married and settled in 
Braintree. 

He removed to Braintree in 1727 or 1728, and preparatory to 
moving there sold out his property in Marshfield and secured land in 
Braintree, as appears in the following deeds: 

Rebeckah Allen of Braintree in County Suffolk spinster, daughter of Samuel 
Allen of Braintree wheelwright, deceased intestate. Whereas a certain tract 
of land at Bendall's Farm containing 100 acres was divided between her 
and Isaac Doggett in the right of Abigail his wife, daughter of Samuel Allen 
and is now held by both in joint tenancie. Said Rebeckah for 110£ paid by 
Isaac Doggett now of Marshfield, County Plymouth, mariner, sells him her 
moiety. May 12, 1727. [Suffolk Deeds, 41-182.] 

Isaac Doggett of Marshfield, mariner, for 100£ paid by his brother Ebenezer 
Doggett of Plymouth and also by paying Isaac's proportion of such bequests 
and legacies as by will of his honored Father Samuel Doggett late of Marshfield 
deceased, his third part of housing and land in Marshfield & Cedar Swamp in 
Pembroke and also the one half of Seth Doggett's interest, provided he die 
without issue, to hold the same after the death or 2"'' marriage of his mother 
Bathsheba Doggett, Aug 8, 1727. [Plymouth Deeds, 22-72.] 

Abigail, wife of Isaae Doggett, joined the church in the Middle 
Precinct, Braintree, in 1729. 

March 27, 1732. At a town meeting in Braintree the various town 
ways were laid out and described, one of the highways ranning : 

Thence to the southerly corner of Dogget's Garden, the way to ly as it is 
now Improved : thence to the southerly corner of Dogget's Field and so along 
side of the Fence as it now stands till we come to the line between Benjamin 
Hayward and said Dogget &c The ways as laid down were accepted, only with 
the following amendment at the desire of Isaac Dogget abovenamed viz : that 
from the way against Mr Dogget's House the way aforesaid shall go over a 
Shoalplace in the corner of a Pond in his land and along the north side of the 
Pond to Mr Haywards Barrs and thence directly to said Haywards Door. 

Isaac Doggett probably resided in that part of Braintree, now 
Randolph, as he connected himself with the church in that precinct 
in 1733. June 25, 1734, Mary Spear's mulatto child was bound to

Dogget chosen sui-\'eyor of Highways." 

March 7, 173f, "Isaac Doged chosen Tithiugman." 

March 26, 1739, " Isaac Doggett chosen constable and sworn." 

Said Dogget then applyed to the meeting for some allowance for to serve ye 
Town, In s"* office above s"" and after some Debate in s'' meeting, voted that six 
pounds be allowed out of the Treasury of this Town and to be equally divided 
between the three constables &c. 

February 28, 1753, Isaac Doggett was paid for teaching school in 
the Middle Precinct two months. April 16, 1753, Isaac Doggett was 
paid for teaching school. 

February 24, 1762. Isaac Doggit, yeoman, and Abigail his wife, 
of Braintree, sell land in Braintree. [Suffolk Deeds, 97-156.] 

Isaac Doggett died between this time and September, 1763, at 
which time Mrs. Doggett is called "widow."

Seth Doggett was a " mariner," and perhaps lost at sea. He 
married at Plymouth, and doubtless made that his home, as his wife 
calls herself of Plymouth, in applying for letters of administration. 
The following from the probate ofHce at Plymouth relate to his 
estate. To Capt. Ebenezer Doggett, mariner, and Mrs. Elizabeth 
Doggett, widow of Capt. Seth Doggett, mariner, deceased, both of

THOMAS DOCtGETT, OF MAESHFIELD, MASS. 



FOURTH GENERATION. 

3589. John Doggett * (TJiomas,^ John,' Thomas^), bom Marsh- 
field, Mass., 1702; died Scituate, Mass. (?), April, 1751; married 
Scituate, Mass., October 5, 1726, by Rev. Nathaniel Eells, to Jemima 
Turner, daughter of Thomas and Hannah Turner, of Scituate. 

Issue : 

3673. i. John Doggett,' born Scituate, Mass., 1730.' 

3674. ii. David Doggett,* born Scituate, Mass., 1734. 

John Doggett was baptized in the First Church in Marshfleld, June 
4, 1704. He was a "mariner," and according to Deane's History 
of Scituate kept the ferry on North river, in 1730, called Doggett's 
ferry (now Little's Bridge) . 

His wife was daughter of Thomas Turner, a lawyer of Scituate, 
and after their marriage they removed there, probably after a resi- 
dence in Marshfleld of about a year, as would appear by the follow- 
ing deeds : 

Thomas Turner of Scituate, currier, for 10£ paid by John Doggett of Marsh- 
field, mariner, 5 acres of land whereon he no-w dwells in Scituate, bounded N 
by highway and strip of land laid out in 2""^ Division of Scituate common, with 
houses & buildings, Nov. 14, 1727. [Plymouth Deeds, 22-134.] 

Thomas Turner of Scituate, conveys land in Scituate provided John Dog- 
gett takes care of his mother Hannah Turner, during her life, Nov 18, 1727. 
[Plymouth Deeds, 22-185.] 

David Turner of Rehoboth in County Bristol clerk, and Thomas Turner of 
Scituate, currier, executors to last will of Thomas Turner late of Scituate, for 
90£ paid by John Doggett of Scituate mariner, i part of 5 acres, whereon the 
said Doggett now dwells. Oct 9, 1731. [Plymouth Deeds, 30-209.] 

"Jan 22, 1737 Thomas Doggett, yeoman, of Marshfleld, for 
18£ paid by my brother John Doggett of Scituate, in County 
Plymouth, mariner, all that my cedar Swamp in Pembroke, being all 
the cedar swamp which my father Thomas Doggett gave me by his 
wOl, and therein meutioned to be one half of his cedar swamp in said 
Pembroke." [Plymouth Deeds, 40-39.] 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIP:LD. 375 

The other half of the swamp was given to John Doggett by his 
father's will, so by this purchase he owned the whole of his father's 
cedar swamp in Pembroke. 

March 14, 1738. John Doggett of Scituate mariner, sells Samuel Jenkins of 
Seituate, land in Scituate, provided he support his Honored mother Hannah 
Eames at the house on this land in sickness and in health, during her life. 
Jemima Doggett wife of John releases her dower. [Plymouth Deeds, 33-125.] 

March 19, 172|. The decked sloop " Patience," about sixty tons, 
Capt. John Doggett, is mentioned as now filled for sea and at anchor 
in North river. 

Captain Doggett probably made his headquarters in Boston soon 
after March, 1738. From the Massachusetts State Archives, 64-132, 
we have the following : 

Whereas Andrew Oliver of Boston, witliin said Province aforesaid, Esq ; one 
of the owners of the sloop " Swan" John Dogget, master, has represented to me 
that the said Sloop in her passage from Jamaica to Boston, by reason of bad 
weather, ran ashore at the mouth of the said Harbour & has thereby suffered 
great damage both as to vessel and cargo, upon which Insurance was made, and 
hath requested that I would appoint suitable persons to survey said vessel and 
estimate the damage come to her and her cargo, by the said disaster, or other- 
wise by stormy weather in her said passage, &c. 

Given at Boston Dec 9, 1741 Shirley. Gov. 

Damage estimated at 1020£ 17s 4d New Eng Currency Jan 16, 1741. Among 
the charges are the following : Breakfasting the people Bread sugar, cyder &c. 
To Capt Dogget for dining the men To damage of cables, riggin & flying jib, 
15£. To 31244 Gal: molasses lost, cost in Jamaica 11<1 = 143£ 4s 2d. Ex- 
change 300 per cent. 

" The Fellowship Club began in Boston, June 1, 1742, designed to 
promote the interest of each other in all things in their power, as well as 
to relieve such members of this society who by misfortunes and losses 
shall become proper objects, according to the ability of the box. The 
members to consist of such persons only who now are or have been 
commanders of vessels, and admitted by approval of a majority of 
the company." Among the founders of this society was Capt. John 
Doggett, and in the application for incorporation as the Boston 
Marine Society (Massachusetts State Archives, 64-521), May 5, 1752, 
a circular containing all the members' names is added , his name being 
among those who had deceased previous to date. 

Captain Doggett seems to have been somewhat unfortunate as a 
mariner, as appears from his letter which was printed in the Boston 
" Evening Post," of January 30, 1744 : " An extract of a letter of 
John Doggett of this town (who sailed in a brigantine for Jamaica the 
1st of Nov. last) dated at Antigua Dec 25, 1743 " : 

The 25"> of Nov. in sight of .Antigua, we had the misfortune to be taken by 
a Spanish privateer sloop with 7.5 men belonging to S' Domingo. 

There was one of our men of war in sight when I was taken but by her mis- 
management she neither took the privateer, nor retook my brig. 



376 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 



Three days after they took me, they marooned me and two of my men, with 
another master they had taken about a month before and one of his men, five of 
us in all, they gave us two pieces of beef and 20 lbs of bread. They striped me 
almost naked and some of the villians attempted to kill me, but running to the 
bushes, I got a club that was my friend, and should certainly destroyed all those 
that put us ashore, would my companion have stood by me, but as it was they did 
not all go away with whole skins. We were taken off the island by a vessel 
bound to S' Thomas and 2 days after, we met with the " Lively" man of war of 
20 guns, and informed them where the privateer lay, for we heard them t.alking 
of going to that place. The Captain of the Man of war said if I was willing to 
go with him, he would go and destroy him. 

We bore away after him and met with an English Privateer who went with us. 

We soon found the Spaniard out at 3 o'clock in the morning, who weighed 
anchor and ran into shoal water, where neither our man of war nor Privateer 
could go. 

At 8 o'clock in the morning the 1«' of Dec. we began to fire, the man of war 
fired 350 shots and our Privateer 170 shots before the Spaniard would quit his 
vessel. We killed 3 men, and wounded 3 more. The Spaniard fired at the Eng- 
lish Privateer, and did him some damage but neither killed nor wounded any of 
his men. At 3 P.M. we concluded to man all the boats from the man of war and 
Privateer, and board the Spaniard at all events, but they seeing us coming with 
resolution, the cowardly Dogs left their sloop (after running her ashore) and 
hid themselves in the bushes. 

We destroyed the sloop, and then made the best of our way for the Island. 

I hope to be home in a short time by the way of Statia. 

" This is the 2°* time Capt. Doggett has had the misfortune to be 
taken by the Spaniards since the commencement of the war."

3711. Ti. Sarah Doggett," born Boston, Mass., October 1, 1767. 

Capt. Samuel Doggett, mariner and merchant, married, in 1753, 
Esther Fairfield, of Boston, granddaughter of William Fairfield, of 
Wenham, Mass., wlio was a representative for twenty-seven years, 
and in 1741 speaker of the House. 

Her brother. Rev. John Fairfield, H.C., 1757, was for many years 
minister at Saeo. 

After 1757 they lived for several years in a house which Captain 
Doggett bought on Marlboro' street, now a part of Washington 
street, Boston ; an extract of the deed of which is as follows : 

Henderson Inches of Boston, merchant, for 240£ sells Samuel Doggett of 
Boston, mariner, Dwelling house on Marlboro St in Southerly part of Boston, 
17 ft 11 in on Marlboro St, Aug 6, 1757. [Suffolk Deeds. 91-26.] 

Captain Doggett seems to Iiave inherited his father's interest in the 
Wiscasset Company, and in the settlement of their lauds at Sheep- 
scott. January 26, 1762, the company's records mention : "Samuel 
Doggett paid for his lot letter A." 

As a mariner he was doubtless well posted in the country near the 
coast of Maine, and invested in land which at that time seemed a 
most promising locality (the neighborhood of the Kennebec), as 
appears in the following extract: 

Francis Whitmore of Medford in County of Middlesex Mass, Merchant for 
390£ lawful money paid by Samuel Doggett of Boston, County of Suffolk, 
mariner, land in Bowdoinham, west side of Kennebec, near Swan Island, 800 
acres, Feb. 21, 1765. [Lincoln Deeds, 4-32.] 

The records indicate that from this time until his deatli he devoted 
much time and money to the development of this land. 

He had houses and barns built, and it is possible his family spent 
a portion of each season there. 

At the meetings of the Wiscasset Company, in Boston, October 
20 and 27, November 21, and December 29, 1767, Capt. Samuel 
Doggett is mentioned as present; and at the October 27 meeting as 
being elected collector of taxes for the company. 



382 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

At the company's meetings in 1768 he is mentioned as present Jan- 
uary 5 and 19, March 10, 22, and 29, AprU 1 and 6, June 21, 
July 14 and 26, August 9, and October 5. At the April 6 meeting 
the following vote was passed, which explains itself : 

April 6, 1768 Whereas it appears by the clerks account that Capt. Samuel 
Doggett now deceased stands charged with the sum of 10£ O.T. for sundry- 
Taxes, of his Lands and as it has been suggested by his heirs that the same has 
been paid although they cannot find a Receipt therefor, and there being some 
reason to think that by some mistake credit was not given for it when paid, 
Voted that the heirs of said Capt Doggett and his estate be discharged of said 
sum of 10£. 

At the same meeting it was also voted that A. Johonnot be paid by Capt. 
Samuel Doggett to be sent to Mr. James Sullivan, &c. 

Capt. Samuel Doggett was present at the company's meetings in 
Boston, in 1769, April 26, August 9 and 10, November 14, 17, and 
21, and December 12. At the meeting August 10 a sale of land of 
delinquent proprietors was held, at which he bought Lot No. 33, 
containing one hundred and twelve acres and one hundred and thirty- 
four rods, which belonged to the heirs of Charles Frost. 

At the meetings in 1770 he was present January 2, March 12 and 
13, May 1, October 23 and 26, November 19, 23, and 27, and 
December 25. 

In 1771, present on March 6 and 18, June 4, 12, 17, 18, 22, and 
24, July 19, August 29, September 12, November 12 and 25, acting 
as moderator at the meeting March 18. 

At the meetings in 1772, present February 17, March 11, May 19, 
July 20 and 23, September 1, October 20, and November 30, acting 
as moderator March 11 and November 30, and being mentioned May 
19 as follows : " Voted Taxes must be paid to Capt Samuel Doggett 
collector of Taxes for the Company." 

In 1773, present January 19 and 25, February 2, 16, and 26, May 
5, 10, and 31, August 24 and 30, and September 2. At the Febru- 
ary 16 meeting it was "Voted, that 2J % be allowed Capt Samuel 
Doggett, collector of Taxes for the Company, for all monies he has 
collected." At the meeting May 5 he acted as moderator. 

In 1774, present January 4, February 1, March 1 and 29, May 17, 
September 27, and November 29 ; at all of which meetings, except- 
ing the first and last, he acted as moderator. The last meeting at 
which he was present was the one held in Boston January 3, 1775. 

By the will of William Fairfield (his father-in-law), dated May 
11, 1770, he was named as one of the executors. [Suffolk Probate, 
69-116.] 

It was the custom in those days for the selectmen, accompanied by 
the governor, school committee, and prominent citizens, to make 
periodical visits to inspect the public schools, and it is in this connec- 



THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 383 

tion that we first find liis name on the town records as visiting the 
several public schools on Wednesday, July 10, 1771. 

At a town meeting held at Faneuil Hall March 14, 1774, twelve 
wardens were chosen for the ensuing year, among whom is the name 
of Capt. Samuel Doggett. Monday, November 11, 1776, at a town 
meeting, sixty persons were chosen for collecting an account of the 
damages sustained since the Boston Port Bill, of whom from Ward 
10 was Capt. Samuel Doggett. Captain Doggett's house, on Marlboro' 
street, was built of wood and called in the records his "Mansion 
House." He attended church at the "Old Brick" or First Church, 
which was then located where Rogers Building now stands. His wife 
received the covenant there, February 10, 1754. 

In the Suffolk Probate, 80-206, is the will of Capt. Samuel Dog- 
gett. It is as follows : 

In the name of God, Amen, I, Samuel Doggett of Boston in the county of

Capt. Noah Doggett, son of Capt. Samuel Doggett, inherited from 
his father that love for travel which led him to become what was then 
called a mariner. 

His father died when he was but eighteen years of age, and two 
years afterward he had the misfortune to lose his mother, so he was 
left an orphan at twenty. 

He constitutes his uncle Kenelm Winslow, of Boston, brazier, as 
his guardian during his minority, which instrument is recorded in 
Suffolk Probate, 39-279. In this paper he says : 

I, Noah Doggett, a minor aged about 19 years, son of Samuel Doggett late of 
Boston in the County of Suffolk in N.E. mariner, deceased — and — signed and 
sealed May 5, 1747. 

The bond was for £100, and was signed by Kenelm Winslow, 
brazier, Jacob Hurd, goldsmith, and William Baker, shop-keeper. 
The records at the Boston Custom House having been removed by 
the British when they evacuated the town, they are not at present 
accessible to enable one to search for papers to show in what vessels 
Captain Doggett sailed, to what ports, and at what dates. January 
21, 1750 or 1752, he was in London, Eug., and bought a book, now 
in the possession of the writer, on the fly-leaf of which he wrote his 
name, "bought in London on Tower Hill, price 10£," and the date 
(one of the dates named above) . The title of the book is ' ' The 
English Pilot, the 4"' book. Describing the West India Navigation 
from Hudson's Bay to the River Amazones, Pub Loudon. Printed 
for W. & T. Mount and T. Page on Tower Hill, MDCCXLIX." 

A memorandum on one of the pages gives latitude and longitude

against the date May 3, 1760, which might indicate he was near the 
Azores at that time. The family Bible in the possession of the 
writer is inscribed " Noah Doggett, his Bible, bought in Bristol, 
Sept 21, 1764, price 20/." It was printed by "Thomas Baskett, 
Oxford, MDCCLXI," and shows that he was again across the water. 

As an indication of what may have been a portion of his cargo on 
Ms return trip in 1764, the writer has in his possession a glass seal 
which was given him in 1886 by Mrs. Elizabeth D. Clapp, of Ded- 
ham, Mass. It was found about 1864 in the garden of Jesse Clap, 
who married Betsey Doggett, High street, Dedham, Mass. 

The seal is about one and a half inches in diameter, of olive green, 
and indicates that it once formed a portion of a bottle. On it is : 

The chart book shows evidence of having been used 
N \ at the pages giving the coasts of the Carolinas, and 
ifii J particularly off Hatteras, which would seem to prove 
the family tradition that he engaged at one time in 
the coasting trade. 

Eegarding his home life, he is supposed to have lived during the 
life of his first wife in the northerly part of Boston. Her family 
attended the Brattle-street Church, and they were married by its 
minister. Rev. Samuel Cooper, whose diary speaks of the marriage, 
and that he received a fee of $1 for his services. 

In the Granary Bmial-grouud in Boston, near the spot where his 
mother was buried, is a gravestone to the memory of this first wife, 
and inscribed as follows : 

Here lies the Body of 
Mrs Mary Doggett 
wife of Mr Noaii 
Doggett who died 
March ye 18, 1761 
In the 27th year 
of her age. 

Captain Doggett married 2d, Mary Alline, who belonged to an old 
Boston family, and whose father and brother were for many years 
registers of di'eds for Suffolk county. The family lived on Sea 
street, now called Federal street, nearly opposite where now stands 
the New York & New England station. May 13, 1767, Captain 
Doggett bought a house and land just beyond that occupied by the 
Allines, on Sea street, the house standing on the site of the present 
Essex-street extension. He bought the estate of William Faris, for 
£240 (Suffolk Deeds, 110-164), but although owned by Faris it was 
still occupied by the family of Knox, who had previously owned it. 

Henry Knox, the seventh of ten sons, was born in this house, and 
became prominent as a general in the Revolution. 

Captain Doggett and family moved to the liouse as soon as the

THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 387 

Knox family had removed, and it was his home for the rest of his 
life. 

It was then a most delightful spot, the lawn in front extending to 
the roadway some thirty feet, while the house itself, several feet 
higher than the street, overlooked the beach and harbor beyond. The 
neighborhood was the' best, and the house situated quite near the New 
South Church, where the family attended worship. 

December 11, 1763, Mary (Alline) Doggett entered into full com- 
munion at this church, and Captain Doggett did the same May 2, 
1784. September 21, 1784, he bought pew No. 57, for £9 lawful, of 
Dea. John Preston, and received his deed from a committee of the 
proprietors. 

The period of the Revolution proved very disastrous to Captain 
Doggett, and tradition tells of the loss of his vessels by seizure and 
decay. 

During the siege of Boston, his house was in such an exposed posi- 
tion the family closed it, and visited in Newburyport. 

Some of the British officers, finding the house deserted, used it as 
their headquarters until the evacuation. After the war. Captain 
Doggett, owing to his losses, was unable to again take up his vocation 
of " mariner," and therefore established himself as a shop-keeper. 
The Boston Directory for 1796, 1798, 1800, 1805, mentions him as 
Noah Doggett, captain, Sea street. 

Captain Noah Doggett, personally, is spoken of as a man of com- 
manding presence ; his face had a stern expression ; he had great 
will-power. 

He was a man of but few words, very careful that all his expres- 
sions were true, an upright and just man, beloved and respected by 
his fellow-men. In his declining years he was comforted by his wife 
and children in his mansion house overlooking the sea, where he died 
in 1805. He was buried in a tomb, probably in the Granary Burial- 
ground, as appears by a bill of Edward Vaunevar, in the possession of 
the writer, which makes a charge for opening the tomb, tolling the 
bells, and for the interment. 

His wife, Mary (Alline) Doggett, died in 1824, at the house of her 
son, corner of Hollis and Tremont streets, and was buried in tomb 
No. 182 in the Granary Ground. 

In Suffolk Probate, No. 22,501, is the will of Capt. Noah Doggett, 
as follows : 

In the name of God Amen, I Noah Doggett of Boston in the County of Suf- 
folk and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, shop keeper, being in good health of 
Body and through the goodness of God, of sound disposing mind and memory 
and considering the uncertainty of life do make and ordain this my last Will and 
Testament as follows. 

Imprimis, I will and order that all my just debts and funeral expences be well 
and truly paid by my Executrix with all convenient speed after my decease.

Mr. Ebenezev Doggett moved from Plymouth to Boston about 
1756. They had belonged to the church in Plymouth, and on ar- 
riving in Boston attended the First Church. They lived in a house 
toward " Oliver's Dock," where they were burned out in the great 
Boston fire of March 10/1760. 

About 1761 Ebenezer Doggett removed with his family to Liver- 
pool, N.S., to which place his brother Samuel had previously gone. 

The grant of the township of Liverpool was not passed until 
November 20, 1764, and was then made to one hundred and forty-two 
proprietors, one share being reserved for the Church of England and 
one for schools. 

The eighth name in this list is Ebenezer Doggett. 

A letter written by him is dated Liverpool, March 1, 1767 (now 
in the possession of George Sampson, Esq., 1889). It relates to his 
daughter Elizabeth, and will be found under her name. 

Ebenezer Doggett witnessed a deed at Liverpool Feb 3, 1767 and again Feb 
24, 1768.

Soon after his marriage he removed to Liverpool, N.S., of 
which place he was one of the first settlers. In 1759 a warrant of 
survey was issued by Governor Lawrence, the wording of which 
begins as follows : 

" Whereas John Doggett, Elisha Freeman, Samuel Doggett and 
Thomas Foster on behalf of themselves and the other persons herein- 
after mentioned, have made application to me for a township within 
this Province, and have undertaken a speedy and effectual settlement 
of said township," etc. In 1761 he was one of a committee of five 
appointed to lay out the lands. 

The grant of the township to one hundred and forty-two persons 
was made November 20, 1764, and he is named the fourth one in the 
list. 

Soon after the decease of Samuel Doggett, his widow wrote a letter 
which is DOW (1889) in the possession of Benj. Drew, Esq., and 
which was found in the house of his grandfather, of the same name : 

Liverpool Nov 26, 1773 
Dear Sister : 

I having an opportunity, embrace it, to let you know that I am well and the 
children that are with me but how it is with them that are there with you God 
only knows. I have been much distressed about my dear child that is with you 
but I hope he is recovered. My father and my brother wrote that you was all 
very tender of him for which I return you my thanks and hope God will 
reward you for your goodness to him, it is not in my power to make you any 
satisfaction. Do write to me by Capt. Drew and let me know how he has been 
if still alive or if God has taken him from me, be very particular in telling me 
how he was, Oh! Betsey I hope you will never see such a day of darkness and 
sorrow as I now see. What a sweet, kind, pleasant compnnion I have lost but I 
must be dumb and not open my mouth for it is the Lord that has done it. I am 
so overwhelmed with my trouble that I know not what I have written but I know 
you will excuse me. With my duty to your mother and love to your spous and 
self so I conclude. Your loving sister

A search of the county records at Liverpool, N.S., shows the fol-

After Mrs. Doggett was eighty years old she worked a bed spread 
for each of her grandchildren, in crewels of her own malie and 
coloring. One of her great-graudchildren, Mrs. Phelps, of Atlantic 
City, N.J., in speaking of her and of the spread, now in her posses- 
sion, which was made for her mother, says: " The spread is beauti- 
ful, and although made so long ago can be admired still. I well 
remember my great-grandmother, a noble woman ; her name and 
fame will never die, but generation after generation arise and call her 
blessed; ' Her price above rubies,' a great-grandchild's testimony."

THOMAS DOGGETT, OF MARSHFIELD. 395 

From the " History of the County of Queens, by James F. More, 
Esq., Halifax, 1873," we read: "The New England fishermen, 
being largely engaged in prosecuting the fisheries during the summer 
months, were, after the expulsion of the Acadians, attracted by the 
munificent offers of the Goverumeut, and readily consented to become 
permanent settlers. To further this oliject they petitioned by a com- 
mittee appointed from among themselves and asked that a township 
might be granted to them on the southern coast of Nova Scotia to the 
eastward of Cape Sable and around port Rossiguol. In 1759 a warrant 
of survey was issued by Governor Lawrence to John Doggett, Elisha 
Freeman, Samuel Doggett, and Thomas Foster, on behalf of them- 
selves, and the other persons after named, to lay out a township to 
be called Liverpool, bounded by the sea coast of Cape Sable shore, 
extending fourteen miles into the country and containing according to 
the bounds about 100,000 acres. 

"John Doggett, who came with the first settlers from New England 
in 1759, was one of the most prominent men among the first appli- 
cants, and had it not been for his exertions in persuading the settlers 
to remain the whole number would have returned. As it was many 
of the young men returned. Those whom he persuaded to remain he 
kept at his own house dui-ing the first winter, and provided for them 
as best he could, at a considerable outlay, for which the government, 
in acknowledgment of his patriotic sacrifices, partially reimbursed 
him." 

He was one of the first appointed to office in Liverpool township ; 
first, as truck-master, to have the management of the trade with 
the Indians; and in 1764 he was appointed justice of the Inferior 
Court of Common Pleas for Queens County, justice of the peace, and 
a militia officer. 

' ' His dwelling-house was situated on Doggett's point, in front of 
the old town plot. 

" He was considered a very trustworthy and respectable man. 

" He had, no doubt, been frequently on the coast previous to his 
becoming a settler at Liverpool. In 1764, the population of Liver- 
pool was five hundred. May, 1761, Capt. John Doggett was 
instructed to hire a vessel for the purpose of removing to the town- 
ship twenty families and sixty head of cattle. This last for the use 
of the settlers. 

' ' The expense incun-ed in this undertaking was to be defrayed by 
the government. In this same year a committee was appoinj;ed to lay 
out the lands under the first warrant. This committee consisted of 
John Dogget, Elisha Freeman, Samuel Doggett, Nathan Tory, and 
Nathan Tupper. 

"In 1763 petitions began to be presented asking for grants of land 



396 DOGGETT-DAGGETT FAMILY. 

outside of the township, aud among these one from John Doggett, 
Esq., for Port Mouton island, which he had ]]reviously held under 
license and improved. The grant was issued to him, and a portion 
of the island is stUl in the possession of the family. In 1770 John 
Doggett was elected as the member for Liverpool to the House of 
Assembly, aud held the office till his death, in 1772, when Seth 
Harding took his place." 

Nathaniel Godfrey of Liverpool sells John Dogget ^ Sawmill on Millbrook 
Sept 27, 1762. [Queens Deeds, 1-3.] 

This 4 sawmill Dogget sells to Lemuel Drew Oct. 24, 1767. [Queens Deeds, 
1-115.] " 

Nov. 8, 1766, John Doggett became bound to Joshua Mager which bond was 
released to Ichabod Doggett, and Joseph Verge, by J. Brook Watson of London 
Eng. Nov 10, 1797 acting as executor of Mr Mager. [Queens Deeds, 4-284.] 

The first register of deeds in the township of Liverpool was John 
Doggett, and his writing, clear and distinct, may be seen on the 
Queens county records; the first deed entered being April, 1764, 
and the last in his handwriting, 18th November, 1771. 

17 April 1772. Letter of adm. was granted on the Estate of John Dogget 
Esq. to Abner Dogget [Queens Probate, 1-24]. The final settlement occurs 15 
Oct 1793 when John Thomas Esq. atty. to Abner Dogget adm. to the estate of 
the late John Dogget Esq dec'd, exhibits his account in selling said estate since 
his appointment as adm. The whole demand by a debt due Job Prim as appears 
by an order of council Dec 11, 1788. Principal £60-0-0 

Int. 16 years 57-12-0 
Real estate sold in pursuance to order of council amounted to £124-4-0 less 
expenses £12-4-0 which the court ordered paid to Prim. [Queens Probate, 
1-140.] 

Joseph Verge, Esq., attorney for Abigail Doggett, of Liverpool, 
Queens Co., N.S., receives £279, being a legacy paid unler the will 
of her father Benjamin House, by her brother Benjamin House, Jr., 
and also for land which came by their mother Abigail House, de- 
ceased, dated September 27, 1784. [O.C. Records, 29-188.] 

The final disposal of land in Scituate does not take place until 
1798, when "Abigail Doggett of Liverpool, Queens Co. N.S. widow 
of the late John Doggett Esq. of said Liverpool dec'd puts her son 
Ichabod Doggett of Liverpool, mariner, as her attorney especially to 
sell land in Scituate, Aug. 23, 1798." [Plymouth Deeds, 85-20.] 

Acting under this authority Ichabod Doggett sells 4 of 2 pieces of salt marsh 
lying in Scituate near the 3rd Cliff and in common and undivided with heirs of 
Thomas Mann dec'd to Xathan Brooks Jr & Simeon Brooks, Sept 12, 1798 
[Plymouth Deeds, 85-21] and also to Leonard Chipp 2 pieces of land containing 
5 acres 2 quarters & 38 rods near Clapps dwelfmg house. Sept 12, 179S. [Ply- 
mouth Deeds, 89-128.] 

Abigail Doggett, of Liverpool, widow of John Doggett, late of 
Liverpool, sells all her dower in an island, once called " Doggetts 
Island," in town of Guysborough, to Beuomi Gardner, 1 7th February, 
1805. [Queens Deeds, 5-271.]
