EXPLANATIONS. 



The small figures, ou the right of names, denote the generation 
from Thomas Faxon^. The consecutive numbers, on the left of 
names, denote the order of descendants from Thomas Faxon^, be- 
ginning with the latter, as No. 1 . 

To find any name, look in the index for number and year; turn 
to the number given in the index, which number will be found, in 
its order, on the left side of the page. 

The sign t which precedes the number denotes that the full ac- 
count of the descendant Avill be found, on a subsequent page, under 
the same number. 

The use of double dates is explained in the Introduction. They 
are not employed, unless existing in the record from which they 
are taken. 

The usual abbrcA^iations of " b." for born, " d." for died, " m." for 
married, " get." for aged, etc., are employed. 

The numbers on the map indicate the generation to which the 
name belongs. 

The descendants of the allied families of Ballon, Barbour, Saxton, 
Washburn, Whitmarsh and some others, are carried to the present 
generation immediately after the record of the first family of the 
name, under the consecutive number with the addition of a letter of 
the alphabet. Thus, .374a denotes the descendants of one Avhose 
name, has the consecutive number 374; and under 374a his children 
will be found. 

When a record is quoted with such an expression as Suff. Deeds 
26 : 75, the first number denotes the volume, the second, the page. 

The names given in parenthesis at the head of families indicate 
the order of descent from Thomas Faxon^ 

The pronouns " he" and " she" are used frequently in giving res- 
idence, occupation, decease, etc. In some such instances strict pro- 
priety requires the repetition of the name; but no ambiguity will 
result from the use of the pronoun. 



INTRODUCTION. 



The author some 3'ears ago made a careful examina- 
tion of the early records of the town of Braiutree, Mass. 
The fullness of the records, and the care with which 
they had been preserved, enabled him to collect a large 
amount of materials relating to the Faxon famil}'-, and to 
trace out many lines from Thomas Faxon^ to the eighth 
generation. He had at that time the leisure to examine 
many matters of local interest, and to converse with those 
whose memor3^of facts reached back to the previous cen- 
tuvy. Correspondence with descendants proved that the 
family was numerous in different parts of the United 
States, and much interest to preserve the genealogy was 
manifested. 

The author had in view at that time, the preparation 
of a comj^lete history of the family. He felt that there 
could be no better monument to the memory of Thomas 
Faxon^ than a thorough record of his descendants. 

The War of the Kebellion caused him tola}^ aside the 
work for a number of j^ears, although researches and in- 
quiries Avere continued when possible. After the close 
of the war, the constant demands of a laborious profes- 
sion rendered progress slow ; but he resolved some few 
years since to bring the work to a conclusion, and to 
that end he has employed much time, labor and money, 
in searching all accessible records, in seeking infovma- 



Vlll INTRODUCTION. 

tion from nearly all living sources, and in putting the 
work in form for publication. 

In searching for descendants of Capt. Richard Faxon* 
the author corresponded with Hon. William Faxon of 
Hartford, Conn. The latter, in 1843, preserved in a 
printed pamphlet the genealogy of the descendants of 
Ebenezer Faxon^, grandson of Eichard"^. This record 
he revised and reprinted in 1860 for this History. Mr. 
Faxon has steadily continued his encouragement, and 
has generously assumed the expense of making an in- 
vestigation of the English history of the family which 
will be subsequently noticed. 

The descendants of Thomas Faxon", (Thomas*, Josiah", 
Hichard^ Thomas^,) have been collected by Isaac D. 
Faxon^ of Elja^ia, Ohio, with the exception of the fam- 
ily of Bathsheba (Faxon''') Saxton. He also compiled 
the record of the descendants of Allen Faxon^. These 
families removed to the West soon after the Revolution- 
ary War, had many children, and the absence of records 
made that part of the work peculiarly difficult. It has 
been performed with rare skill and good judgment. 

Dr. William Lyman Faxon, of Quincy, Mass , has 
rendered valuable assistance in securing returns from 
some of the descendants of Capfc. Richard Faxon'*, of 
Isaiah Faxon^ and others. He has also procured many 
detached dates and facts requiring diligent and careful 
research. 

The Note which precedes the " Old Homesteads," 
acknowledges in part the kind assistance of Samuel A. 
Bates, Esq., the town clerk of Braintree. His excellent 
digest of the records has been invaluable, and we are 
under great obligations for his constant interest in the 
correctness of the work. 

The author is greatly indebted to the library of the 



INTRODUCTION. IX 

Antiquarian Societ}^ at Worcester, Mass., where he lias 
been jDermitted to consult the best collection of family 
and town histories in the state. 

He has also found the "Vinton Memorial," the best 
source of information on difficult points. He has cor- 
rected some errors which exist in that volume in a 
sketch of the "Faxon ^amil3^" No one has rendered 
greater service to genealogy than Mr. Vinton, and 
the author is grateful for the advice which he received 
from him not long before his decease. 

An effort has been mado to investigate the history of 
the family previous to the emigration. In 1860, Rich- 
ard Faxon^, of Bordeaux, France, sent a copy of a coat 
of arms which his father, Kichard'^, son of Dea. Richard^ 
of Boston, obtained in England. It was hoped that 
this would be of service in tracing the family in Eng- 
land. Upon a visit to London in 1869, Hon. William 
Faxon of Hartford, Conn., employed John Camden Hot- 
ten to make an investigation. Mr. Hotten found no 
arms recorded to the name of "Faxon." He searched 
the Heralds' College, London ; the original manuscripts 
of the Heralds' Visitations in the British Museum from 
1520 to 1680, the rolls of arms of the orders of 
knighthood; all the principal count}" histories and 
genealogical works in the British Museum ; " Burke's 
Landed Gentry," " Historical Account of the Common- 
ers," and other works. The name was found in none 
of them. It was so uncommon in England that in the 
London Directory of 1869, only one instance occurred, 
viz., W. S. Faxon, Esq., Surgeon. The latter could give 
no account of his pedigree. He had heard his father, 
who was a medical man, state that the family came from 
Cheshire. His crest was "Lion (red) holding mullet, 
;plain blue shield, with silver bar dextra; the motto, 



X INTRODUCTION. 

" Non verba sed factaP A further search of •' Ormond's 
History of Cheshire '' gave no light. The lists of non- 
conformists and non-jurors did not contain- the name. 
The names of Fexton, Fasson, Fa^on were found. 

In 1870, Mr. Hotten found in the accounts of the as- 
sessors of taxes for the county of Bedford, in the reign 
of Henry VIII., some entries relating to a family of the 
name of Faxon. He thought the orthography unmis- 
takable. In 1876, Hon. William Faxon resumed the 
search through competent parties in London. A large 
amount of manuscript containing lists of names from 
Bedfordshire was examined without any definite result. 
Two families were discovered, one named "Foxon," the 
other " Foxen." James Foxen of 20 Wordsworth Eoad, 
Tenge, Surrey, lately bailiff on the Barton estates, 
Ampthill, Bedfordshire, stated that he belonged to an 
old family which spelled the name "Foxon," until about 
60 years ago. George Foxon of the same family, of 
Heme, Toddington, Bedfordshire, spells his name 
'' Foxon." Thomas Withington of Toddington, whose 
wife was a ^' Foxen," has several old papers relating to 
the family, dating back to 1676, and the name of his 
wife's ancestors was spelled therein " ffoxon." 

It may be doubtful whether Mr Hotten could dis- 
tinguish with certainty the letter ''a," from ''o," in the 
ancient characters of the time of Henry VIII. 

In the county of Northampton, England, is the an- 
cient parish of Faxton. The records of the parish were 
searched by the rector, Rev. Robert Isham, from 1578 
to 1635, and the name of the family was not discovered 
among the entries. 

The result of these investigations is stated in full, to 
render it unnecessary for any one to go over the same 
ground in pursuing the subject further. Tliat the 



INTKODUCTIOX. XI 

names of " Foxen,'- and "Foxon/*^ are found in Bedford- 
shire, that " Foxton," and ^^Fexton/' occur in England, 
lead to the presumption that the name has been slightly 
changed in this country, and that it may have been 
originally "Foxon," "Foxton," or ''Fexton." These 
names direct our attention to Bedfordshire as the possi- 
ble origin of the famil}^ The manner of keeping rec- 
ords in England, the difficulty of obtaining access to 
them, and of reading them render it probable that a 
long and expensive search would prove unavailing 

Any curious speculation on the origin of the name 
will have no value. It has been spelled in this country 
as the records show, " Faxton," '^ffaxton," '^Faxson," 
'' Fackson," •• Faxon." The latter is the only one in 
use except the instance of Theodore S. Faxton of Utica, 
K Y. He adopted the letter " t." 

It is probable that Richard", of Bordeaux, obtained 
without much inquiry, a crest which may have belonged 
to some family of similar name. Although a gentleman 
of excellent capacity, he may not have possessed the 
requisite knowledge of heraldic proprieties to perceive 
the necessity of proving an undoubted right before as- 
suming it. It is not the crest of the Faxon family, and 
like the majority of such productions, has been of no 
service in historical research. It is deemed unnecessary 
to insert the description of it. The probability is that 
Thomas Faxon^ was a farmer in good circumstances, of 
a family having no historic distinction, and entitled to 
no armorial honors. 

It may be here stated that the name of William 
Faxen was found in the New York Directory of 1876. 
His widow stated that he was born in Sweden, and that 
she had letters in the language of that country, from 
some of his relatives. 



XU INTRODUCTION. 

In the preparation of this ^York, the author has 
searched nearly all the records of Deeds and Probate in 
Massachusetts, the records of births, marriages and 
deaths of Boston and all places annexed, and of a large 
number of cities and towns of Massachusetts and other 
states, all known town and family histories, the Archives 
of Massachusetts, files of ancient newspapers, and the 
directories of the principal cities of the United States. 
The preparation of the ^' Old Homesteads," occupied 
all the leisure time of several months and some weeks 
of labor on the land. 

It is thought that the volume includes all the de- 
scendants of Thomas Taxon^ Certain instances which 
may be errors in name, are given in the sketch of 
Thomas^ 

The following have not been assigned to any family, 
viz. : Joseph Faxon, a son of Priscilla, given in the list 
of baptisms of the Middle Precinct Church (North 
Braintree) 1774. A Joseph Paxon was published to 
Ann Welsh, Jan. 1, 1760, but his name has not oc- 
curred again, and no descendants have been found. 
Mary Faxon and Elijah Hay den, both of Weymouth, 
were married March 11, 1756. (Weymouth, Mass., Kec- 
ords.) It is not known who this Mary was. The 
Cambridge, Mass , Records, vol. 8, p. 118, have the 
names of Frederic H. and Emma C Faxon. This is 
an instance in which a person from Danville, P. Q., of 
the name of " Laxon," assumed the name of Faxon. 

In the Barbour, Saxton, Washburn and Whitmarsh 
families, the descendants of females of the name of 
Faxon have been traced to the present generation. These 
families have furnished the facts with the desire to have 
them inserted An effort has been made in every in- 
stance to give dates of birth, marriage, death, names of 



INTRODUCTION". Xlll 

persons allied by marriage, with maiden name of mother. 
Occupations have been sought in the records of deeds and 
probate. It has not been possible to make the earlier 
generations perfect, and some of the later families in the 
western states have incomplete records of dates. 

It was a difficult task to determine by undoubted ev- 
idence, the ancestry of the two of the name of Thomas 
of the fifth generation. The records were confused, the 
Vinton Memorial had assigned them to wrong families, 
and some of the descendants were positive in their as- 
sertion that Thomas"', who married Joanna Allen, was 
the son of Capt. Kichard Faxon*. An entry in the 
"Diary" of the Rev. Samuel Nil es was found a few 
months ago, in which Thomas^, who married Joanna 
Allen, is called " Thomas 2nd, son of Thomas Faxon de- 
ceased." A subsequent examination of the Suffolk 
Deeds proved that Thomas^, who was married three 
times, was the son of Richard*. Several of the deeds 
were signed by the third wife, Phebe, and conveyed 
part of the estate received from E-ichard*. The de- 
scendants will, therefore, find the order of descent 
changed from that given in the blanks used for collect- 
ing genealogy. 

The dates occurring in the first generations previous 
to the adoption of the New Style, are given as found on 
the records. If the double date exists there, it is re- 
tained. Other dates have not been changed, as the 
alteration might lead to confusion and error. The cor- 
rection of the calendar by Pope Gregory XIII. was not 
adopted until 1752. Until that year the Old Style pre- 
vailed throughout all the colonies of Great Britain. In 
1752, by act of Parliament, eleven days were struck 
from the month of September by calling the 3d the 
14th ; and the 1st of January was made the beginning 



XIV INTRODUCTION. 

of the year, instead of the 25th of March, Between 
Jan. 1, and March 25, double dating was sometimes 
employed previous to 1752. Thus Feb. 11, 1731—32 
is, by the Old Style, in the year 1731 ; by the New 
Style, in 1732. George Washington was born Feb. 11, 
1731 by the Old Style : by the New Style, Feb. 22, 1732. 

Notwithstanding the care that has been exercised, 
mistakes will be found. The town records do not al- 
ways agree with those of families. The age on tomb- 
stones is sometimes at variance with the recorded birth. 
Instances have occurred during the compilation, in 
which persons have given the date of their own birth, 
as well as that of members of their families, incorrectly. 
Such cases have, in general, been corrected. Errors 
and omissions reported to the author will be printed in 
a postscript to be distributed, and inserted at the end 
of the volume. 

It is unnecessary to enlarge upon the importance and 
propriety of publications of this nature. The subject 
has been well treated in the works of those distin- 
guished b}^ their love of genealogical research. A just 
regard for the history of ancestors is characteristic of 
refined and intelligent minds. It need not descend to 
trifling and worthless details ; but it must employ suf- 
ficient care and proof to guard against errors ; and for 
this purpose, all the facts necessary to determine ances- 
try are essential. To the scholar who loves the history 
of his country, who desires an intimate acquaintance 
Avith persons, as well as a knowledge of facts, and to 
make the past a living realitj^, the study of the early 
records of our people is full of instruction ; and the 
study of a race in all its social and political relations for 
a period of 250 years has its rewards for the student of 
humanity. 



INTRODUCTIOX. XV 

With none of that pride which seeks to trace its lin- 
eage to some ilkistrious ancestor, with none of that 
spirit which acknowledges no connection with its own 
name unless attracted by circumstances of wealth or 
distinction, the author has learned during his researches 
to love and esteem the family. He has found its pub- 
lic record free from reproach, and its private life, in 
general, remarkable for integrity and good character. 
Although the family has no claim to distinction, there 
is a feeling of satisfaction in remembering that Thomas 
Faxon^ Avas a worth}?- man, who shared in the perils and 
hardships of our country's infancy ; was a member of a 
Christian church which advocated religious liberty ; 
that he won for himself and his family, an ample com- 
petence, and possessed the respect and confidence of his 
fellow men. Ko title of rank, however noble, could 
have made his name more dear to us, have increased our 
respect for his memory, or enhanced the pride with 
which we refer to him. No descendant of that ancestor 
will be entirely without interest to us. 

The author trusts that this book, notwithstanding its 
imperfections, will contribute in some degree, to the 
gratification of those whom he has come to know by 
correspondence and personal acquaintance during the 
past twenty years. He has been induced by a sincere 
regard for them and an imperative sense of duty to pro- 
ceed with the undertaking. He has had in view, no 
other result than to preserve the facts, which in a few 
years more would have been collected with still greater 
difficult}^, or been wholly lost ; to render the work ser- 
Ticeable to genealogy, and to perpetuate sentiments of 
just regard for the honor of our name. 

Spencer, Mass. October 30. 1879. 



NOTE. 



A THOROUGH search of the records resulted in the 
collection of a large number of conveyances, settlements 
and wills of the Faxon Family. These were used at 
first to verify the genealogy, and for that purpose they 
were valuable ; for, in some instances, they furnished 
the only evidence of names and lineage. 

Some of these deeds were read by Samuel A. Bates, 
Esq., the well-known clerk of Braintree. He first gave 
the author the general location of the tract of land pur- 
chased by Thomas Faxon\ pointed out the homestead of 
EliashiV and the "Mill Brook.'' 

A map was then prepared by measuring from the 
" Mill Brook " and the east boundary. This left the 
south and west limits as "probabilities." The map 
with the documents was placed in the hands of Mr. 
Bates. With great kindness he reviewed the whole 
subject, consulted the best local authorities, and with 
his rare knowledge of the genealogy and history of 
Braintree, removed all doubts, and substituted facts for 
probabilities. During a week which the author passed 
at the old place Mr. Bates accompanied him in search- 
ing for the lines, found the south wall, the old cellars 
and other landmarks, carefully compared all the evi- 
dence, and skillfully guarded against incorrect conclu- 
sions. 

Without such assistance this part of the work would 
have been impossible, or full of errors and unsatisfactory 
presumptions. The task required that intimate knowl- 



Z NOTE. 

edge of localities which is accquired only by long resi- 
dence and careful observation. 

The interest and pleasure \yhich have attended this 
investigation will always be associated with the grate- 
ful recollection of the generous friendship which has 
been of such value to all who are interested in this re- 
sult. 

Serious mistakes exist in the records and in many 
publications of high authority. These could be rectified 
only by the largest experience, skill, and knowledge. 

During the last three years numerous errors which 
had escaped the writer's observation were brought to 
light by the diligent examination of Mr. Bates. 

The copious extracts from the records will be of little 
interest to the general reader. They may serve to pre- 
sent some facts in the history of Braintree, and aid in 
the discovery of the ancient homesteads of other fam- 
ilies. 

January 4, 1879. 



The Old Homesteads. 



The location of the tract of land situated in Brain- 
tree, purchased by Thomas Faxon^ in 1656, and subse- 
quently occupied by him and his descendants, is a 
subject of interest in connection with the family history. 

The mode of conveyancing in the Seventeenth and 
Eighteenth Centuries was not such as to nder it pos- 
sible, in general, to fix the exact limits gi\ i in ancient 
deeds ; nor is such precision necessary for our purpose. 
To determine the general location, to define within prob- 
able limits a few of the earlier homesteads will preserve 
the knowledge of the place for the future, and will af- 
ford to descendants the means of finding and visiting it. 

For this purpose those documents which are found in 
the records of deeds and probate, and which give the 
best proofs of location, have been selected. Tradition, 
often a most unreliable species of evidence, has been 
carefully examined ; and, when agreeing with the re- 
cords, has been accepted. The evidence has been so 
clear in regard to the estate of Thomas Faxon^ that a 
better result has been attained than was at first antici- 
pated. The boundaries have been placed beyond ques- 
tion, and a map has been prepared to illustrate the sub- 
ject. 

The land has been little changed in its external feat- 
ures. Situated apart from the center of population, and 
not required for the usual demands of a thickly settled 
community, it remains to-day the same expanse of up- 
land, meadow and woodland, for the most part unculti- 



4 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

vated, but well adapted under good management to all 
the requirements of farming and stock-raising. 

Thomas Faxon was probably living on the land which 
he purchased of Samuel Haugh as early as 1652. This 
appears by the following extract from the records of 
Braintree : — 

"A highway to the Common, There being present the selectmen 
of Brantre as Martin Sanders — James Peniman — Samuel Bass — 
William Allis — Richard Brackett. HaA^e ordered and set out a 

highway for our the way as followeth that is to say Att the 

uper-end of Thomas Mekins ground going to Monaticutt in the 
country highway to ly betweene Thomas Mekins ground and 
Thomas Mattsons four rods wide and so to run to James Penimans 
ground and so to run between Goodman Penniman and Goodman 
Mattson four rods wide while it comes to the way leading to Good- 
man Faxson." 

The records do not show what land was held by 
Thomas Mekins and Thomas Mattson. The Suffolk 
deeds give a Thomas Matson living in Boston in 1655. 
a gunsmith, and probably father of the one above named. 
In the same year (1655) a Thomas Meekins was living 
in Dorchester, and bought half a mill and half a house 
adjoining the mill, called Neponset Mill. The names 
are rarely found in connection with the history of Brain- 
tree. '^ Thomas Mekj'ne, Jr ," had a grant of 28 acres 
in 1640 ; and " Sargent Matson/' of a certain portion in 
1644. 

The highway was probably a continuation of the road, 
now known as Washington steet, leading from Quincy to 
Braintree. "Monaticutt " was the name of that portion 
of the old town of Braintree which is situated on the 
Monatoquot Biver, and which retains the original name 
of Braintree. The " way leading to Goodman Faxon,'* 
is Cherry street, which continues through the " Com- 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 5 

Before entering upon the land, it may be well to read 
the description in Haugh's deed, (Appendix ^'A"). 

" One side thereof lying with severall mens lotts given by the 
Town of Boston before Brantrey afores*! was a Township (and yet 
lieth unimproved) on the South part, the other side lying next 
Brantrey Commons commonly called the Rocks on the North part, 
one end butts upon the land late Mr. Will'" Tyngs deced near Mon- 
aticot towards the East, the other end butts upon the land called 
the Blew Hills West." 

The evidence which we shall present, proves that the 
limits of the land claimed under Haugh's deed are as 
laid down on the map, and may be described as fol- 
lows : 

Beginning at the northwest corner in the line of an old 
wall, the remains of which are still to be found along 
the upland and meadow, a little south of the Adams 
line : (This point can be determined by a line drawn 
nearly north from the intersection of the two brooks, 
one of which flows north, the other east,) thence by the 
line of said wall, east, crossing Granite street, the " old 
road," and passing through the woodland, to a point on 
the brook a little north of Cherry street ; from the 
brook along Cherry street to Washington street; then<^e 
by Washington street, south to a point about ten rods 
south of Common street ; thence almost due west to the 
point where the runnel of water crosses the lane ; thence 
by the runnel of water, south to the old division wall. 
(This point where the runnel intersects the wall, which 
extended at one time to Washington street, is about 
905 feet in a line almost due west from the corner of 
Washington and Hollis streets, where the school-house 
stands.) Thence by the wall, almost due west, to a 
point on the west side of Granite street, where the said 
line of wall would intersect a brook which flows in a 
northerly direction ; thence by said brook in a northerly

course to the point where it flows into the brook running 
east through "Faxon Meadow "' ; thence from the point 
where the brooks meet, north, in the old line of the 
Harmon land, to the first point. 

Kef erring to the accompanj'ing map, we can aj^proach 
the land of Thomas^ by the ancient way which he and 
his descendants used. Descending Cherry street, we 
find the old Capen house on the right, on land in the 
possession of those of the name as early as 1747, when 
Eliashib Faxon** made his conveyance to Benjamin 
Veazie, 2nd. Passing this house we approach the 
brook ; and directl}' in front on the west side of it. is 
the old Veazie house, on land once owned by Eliashib 
Faxon*, and by him conveyed to Benjamin Veazie, 2nd, 
March 21, 1747. This was a part of the estate of Josiah 
Faxon' which the latter received by the will of Kichard-, 
and which was on "ye Norwest side of ye Mill brook."" 
(Will of Eichard^, Appendix " E."; This brook runs 
through the meadow Ij'ing to the west, now known as 
"Faxon Meadows " ; and at the point where it crosses 
Cherr}^ street, takes a northerly course towards Quincy. 
It once furnished a limited water power for the first 
mill, which was in the present limits of Quincy at the 
junction of School and Fort streets. Directlj^ in front 
is the elevated and rock}^ land specified in Haugh's deed 
as the north limit of the land of Thomas Faxon'. This 
was a part of Braintree Commons, " commonly called 
the Eocks." To the west lie the " Blue Hills," and on 
the east of the latter is land which was called the "Blue 
Hills land." The land so called was the western bound- 
ary. The position of the land between Cherry street 
and Common street, bounded on the east by Washing- 
ton street, should be carefully noted. Passing down 
the lane which leads from Common street, we come to

the old house on the right. As will be seen when we 
reach the conclusion of this article, that house w^as prob- 
ably the earliest place of residence of the Faxon Family. 
The runnel is easily followed to the place where it in- 
tersects the south wall. The Monatoquot Kiver is on 
the other side of Washington street to the east. The 
land of Mr. William Tyng probably included that 
marked on the map with the names of Legaree, Thayer 
and Hobart. In 1639, "Edward Tinge" had 250 
acres on the upper side of the pond. It is supposed 
that this was the " Little Pond." (f) 

In taking the south wall as the limit in that direc- 
tion, the evident antiquity of the wall, the traditions of 
those who are most competent by their age and knowl- 
edge to give an opinion, its position with reference to 
the Hayden land, the fact that it w^as the southern 
boundary of James*^ and his heirs to a time within the 
memory of those still living, have been considered. The 
wall is continuous, excepting the place where Granite 
street divides it. It is remembered as a w^ell-known 
landmark by the oldest residents. 

To meet the objections of any who might advance the 
opinion that the land extended farther south, reference 
must be had not only to the proprietors on the south, 
but to the quantity of land given in the deed. The 
amount is 450 acres. While it is not to be supposed 
that this is stated with accuracy, or that there was any 
actual survey, the number must not be wholly disre- 
garded. Thomas Faxon^ would not accept a deed which 
specified a number of acres much less than what he in- 
tended to claim. Other proprietors would not allow 
him a tract much larger than the terras of his deed 
would warrant. He had occupied the premises some 
years as a tenant of Mr. Haugh and must have had a 



8 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

good knowledge of the extent. It appears by a state- 
ment in Mr. Livermore's History of Block Island that 
Thomas Faxon was considered particularly competent to 
judge of such matters. It was voted at a meeting of 
the proprietors of Block Island that Mr. Noyse of Sud- 
bury, and " Mr. Faxon, an able knowing man," should 
go to Block Island, and divide the land among the 
several owners in proper proportion. This duty they 
performed. 

Taking the number 450 in the deed as considerably 
below the actual amount, let us consider the division 
made by Richard* and Mary"* in 1767, and the division 
of Josiah^ in 1731. To these add 25 acres conveyed by 
Josiah'', a short time before his death in 1731, to his son 
Edward* ; and a lot of 24 acres, and another of 22 acres 
which Eliashib* owned, and without doubt received from 
his father, before the death of the latter. Exclude the 
cedar swamp and the land lying in '^ Cochata" (Ran- 
dolph) mentioned in the division of Josiah^, we have 
then all the original purchase in Haugh's deed. The 
land in " Cochata " and the cedar swamp were a part 
of the lands purchased and divided by the town of Brain- 
tree. No conversances are on record which show that 
any portion of the land w^as alienated previous to these 
divisions. An examination of Richard's- will shows 
that he received the land north of the brook ; and the 
settlement of the estate of Thomas^ shows clearly that 
his grandson, Thomas^, father of Richard* and Mary* 
received all the remaining property of the grandfather; 
and the division of Richard* and Mary* shows precisely 
what the land of their father was. 

The following is a detailed statement of the several 
amounts contained in the divisions referred to, and of 
the lots of Edward* and Eliashib*. Edward* receives

nothing in tlie division of Josiah^ His father had 
deeded to him his house and 25 acres with some pro- 
vision and conditions as to the support of his mother 
MehitaLle. Eliashib received little, as his father had 
evidently provided for him before 1731.

The fact that parts of the acre, and even rods are 
reckoned in the division of Josiah^ is proof of care in 
estimating. Accepting the result of the statement as a 
probable limit within which to confine the estate, we 
cannot pass the wall on the south, nor indeed the other 
boundaries on the map. 

Having taken a general view of the estate of Thomas^, 
we are prepared to examine and understand the division 
of Richard* and Mary*, the subsequent conveyances, and 
the particular proofs of location.

trees, heaps of stones untill we come to the Gray Oak blazed tree 
that parts the laud or the said Richard, Mary Faxon." 

Dated May 6th, 1707. 

From the date of Haugh's deed (1656) to that of the 
division, the name of Tyng has disappeared on the east. 
Taking up Eichard's share first we find no difficulty in 
following him along the well-known brook. His line 
ended at Cherry street, where it turns off and goes along 
that street, which was then called a lane, to the '^ Country 
Eoad." That the latter is Washington street is evident 
not onl}^ from the division, but from other deeds subse- 
quently quoted. The land of Mr. Legaree is still called 
" Legare's Orchard," and the north bound of it is fixed 
by that tradition which preserved the name for 170 
years. Mr. Thayer's land and Josiah Hobart's extended 
to the line on which their names are marked. That is 
to say, they had about that length of front on Washing- 
ton street, though somewhat irregular on the west. 
The Hobart house stood on the site of the new school- 
house. The south wall was the dividing line between 
Josiah Hobart and Xehemiah Hayden. These facts are 
largely confirmed by tradition, as well as by deeds and 
other evidence hereafter presented. 

There can be no doubt that the runnel and wall in- 
tersect at the point where E-ichard's line meets Hay- 
den's. The Misses Sugden, descendants of Nehemiah 
Haj'den, have erected a house on the site of one of the 
old Hayden mansions ; and just south of their house is 
the cellar supposed to be that of the Nehemiah Haj^den 
house. Tradition is very clear upon all the statements. 

To give further confirmation of the position of Hay- 
den's land, we quote from Suffolk Deeds, 115 : 

March 26, 1744, Elizabeth (Faxon) Hayden, widow of Benjamiu 
Hayden conveyed to Ebenezer Whitmarsh a piece of orchard land, 
bounded as follows : — 



12 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

" Southeast by the road leading to Bridgewater. Southwest on 
the yard used to the said dwelling house as the fence now standeth. 
Northwest and north on the thirds laid off to me the said Elizabeth. 
Easting now in the possession of Mr. Peter Clark." 

The corner of this land between West street and 
Washington street is still orchard. 

Again it was voted by the town of Braintrea^ March 
11, 1763, 

" That the school-house in the middle precinct be erected on the 
southeast corner of Mr. Benjamin Hayden's land at the lane lead- 
ing to Mr. Lemuel Thayer's." 

The lane was West street, sometimes known in former 
times as "Aldridge's Lane," since it led to "Aldridge's 
Farm ; " but it came to be called " Narrow Lane." 
That the school-house stood at the north corner of this 
lane and Washington street is well-known to the people 
of Braintree. 

Lemuel Thayer evidently lived on West street. He 
was a witness to Ebenezer Whitmarsh's will in 1760. 
It is not improbable that he inherited land of John 
Tha3^er who owned to the south of Bichard'', or of 
Thomas Thayer who bounded the share of Mary^ on the 
south, (g) 

It has not been thought necessary to search for the 
exact limits of the extensive tract of John French and 
Dependence French. They owned up to the southern 
line of Mary'^. The house of Mrs. Collins is on West 
street on land once standing in the name of the French 
family. It came to the Collins family by inheritance 
from the French. They still own to some distance north 
of West street. Not far from the Collins house rises 
the brook which was the west limit of Mary's share. 

That the land of Thomas Faxon did not extend be- 
yond the north limit of Hayden and French will now be 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 13 

accepted as indisputable. If then the southern wall is 
examined and compared with all other fences to the 
north and south of it, it will be plain that it was a 
straight and continuous boundary, built subsequent to 
the division in 1707, and chiefly designed to serve as the 
south dividing line of the Faxon farm. 

The west limit of Richard* which separated his share 
from Mary's began at a maple tree standing by the 
brook in a ''little round meadow." The "little round 
meadow" is unmistakable. It lies to the south of the 
part of the old road which passes through Dr. Symonds' 
land from Granite street. The maples still grow near 
the brook. Here are the remains of an old wall on 
the east side of Granite street, exactly in line with an 
old but well repaired wall on the west side. The di- 
rection of the wall from the "little round meadow" is 
almost south. It is straight and unbroken and meets 
the south division wall. 

The brook on the west has been followed to its source 
from the point at which it enters the " Mill Brook " 
flowing east. It was found impracticable to make an 
accurate survey of it, on account of the thick growth of 
woods around it. Its general course has been indicated 
on the map. 

The land of Mary* did not remain long in her posses- 
sion. She married Joseph Dean, May 7, 1707, the day 
after the division. We do not find the deed b}^ which 
she disposed of it ; but on the 16th of May 1707, 
Thomas Wells mortgaged the same land, described in 
the exact words given in the division, to Francis Le- 
garee of Boston. This mortgage was released in 1710. 
(Suff. Deeds, Lib. 24, fol. 87.) Thomas Wells and his 
wife Mercy sold 60 acres of it to John Stone, March 30, 
1713. (Lib. 29, fol. 15.) 



14 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

DESCRIPTION. 

"About 60 acres, be it more or less, at the Westermost end of 
Faxons Farm so called — partly upland and partly meadow — 
bounded East on the lauds of Richard Faxon — West on lands in 
possession of Daniel Legaree partly and partly on the brook that 
runs into Faxons meadow. North on the same brook as it runs 
through said meadow, and south on the lands of Nathaniel Blan- 
chard and Samuel Yezay." 

John Stone of Braintree, cordwainer, and his wife 
Thankful convej-ed the same 60 acres to Thomas Peck 
of Boston, shipwright, Sept. 4, 1717. (Lib 32, fol. 
78-9.) The description is in the same words. 

Thomas Peck sold it to Peter Marquand of Boston, 
husbandman, Sept. 12, 1718. (Lib. 33, fol. 97.) Peter 
Marquand left it by will to Zachariah Marquand, his 
son, Sept. 19, 1769. Date of Probate, July 3, 1772. 
Zachariah Marquand left it b}^ will to his nephew, 
Zachariah Marquand Thayer, April 10, 1784. Date of 
Probate, Oct. 9, 1787. Marquand's house is located on 
the map. Daniel Legaree of Boston, came to own some 
of it; (the 100 acres) but the deed is not found. He con- 
veyed 16 acres of it to Samuel Veazey of Braintree, (Lib. 
32, fol. 242, Oct. 9, 1714.) Other portions of Mary's 
land have not been traced. Marquand's has been given 
not only as a matter of interest ; but to assist in under- 
standing the descriptions in other deeds, (a) 

In 1737, Pichard Faxon"* made a purchase of land of 
Josiah Hobart and Thomas Hollis. HoUis had received 
the land, which he conveyed, from Josiah Hobart. This 
acquisition gave Richard another front on Washington 
street. It is probable that he bought this to have con- 
venient access to the main road from his own land, and 
to erect a house. In 1745, he sold a part of it to his 
son Thomas^ Just in the rear of the house of Mrs. S. 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 15 

Thayer on Washington street, about ten rods south of 
River street, as marked on the map, are the remains of 
the ceHar of the house which was afterwards the home- 
stead of Thomas^. This house was blown down in 1815. 
That Thomas resided here is proved by tradition and by 
two mortgages in which he calls it his homestead. The 
first of these, to Benjamin Hallowell, Jr., is dated Aug. 
2, 1768, and recorded Lib. 113, fol. 47. The second is 
to Amos Binney, and is dated Feb. 2, 1771, and re- 
corded Lib. 118, fol. 257. They are both given soon 
after the death of Eichard, are signed by his wife 
Phebe, and prove that Thomas^, the husband of Eliza- 
beth Hobart, Anna Clark and Phebe Hay den, was the 
son of Hichard^, and not of Thomas^, as stated in the 
" Vinton Memorial " and some other publications. 

The evidence that Eichard^ lived in the house which 
is known to have been the home of his son Thomas' is 
not of a very positive character. He may have contin- 
ued to live in the " old place. '^ There are many cir- 
cumstances which lead to the belief that he removed to 
the house on Washington street. We insert the descrip- 
tions of the three deeds of Hobart and Hollis to Eich- 
ard"^, and of the latter to his son Thomas^ They help 
to confirm the boundaries already given, the location of 
land of Thayer and Hobart, show how this land was ac- 
quired by Eichard*, and that it was no part of the estate 
of Thomas^

leave the remainder of the said Hollis's land of equal breadth from 
the road down (all along)." 

Deed of Richard Faxon to Thomas Faxon. (Lib 113, 
fol. 17.) Date, 1745. 

" Two certain peices or parcels of land as followeth viz. : one 
peice or parcel of land partly upland and partly meadowland con- 
taining by estimation seven acres and a half be there more or less, 
situate lying & being in Braintree, near the meeting house in the 
middle precint, and is bounded and butted as folloAvs Easting on

lands and my pasture lands Northing partly still on my own lands, 
being meadow lands and also as the fence now stands from the 
pasture fence aforesaid a little southing of the corner of Mr. John 
Thayer's meadow and then still Northing on said Thayers lands 
until it comes up to the country road leading to said Bridgwater 
aforesaid. The other lot being salt meadow & situated in said 
Braintree." 

The Faxon Family bought land lying in "Cochata "; 
cedar swamp, in " Gardner's Swamp "; land lying near 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 17 

" Farm River "; and salt marsh in Quincy. They also 
purchased land in the " North Commons," about 1765. 
Much of the land referred was a part of the " purchase- 
land " of 1699 and 1708, which was divided into lots, 
numbered, and sold, or drawn by the purchasers. We 
have not space for the deeds, and they would be of no 
interest, as they do not describe homesteads. For the 
benefit of any who might suppose that these deeds in- 
clude a part of the ancient homestead of Thomas^, we 
give the following references to the Suffolk deeds. A 
careful study of them wall relieve any doubt. To ex- 
tend the estate to include them would lead to the 
absurdity of claiming " Moore's Farm " and. "Aldridge's 
Farm," and would dispossess many other ancient pro- 
prietors.

age. One of the Hollis family is the present owner.

Edward Faxon'' sold the homestead of Josiah"^ in 
1777, and removed to Randolph. He purchased a place 
now known as ^'Faxon's Corner" in Brookville in the 
town of Holbrook, formerly a part of Kandolph, The 
following abstract of Edward's deed is useful in fixing 
the position of other lots.

that the homestead known to have been Josiah's*^ was 
also that of Richard^ at the time of his death in 1672.

marsh & when past said lot of the heirs of the said Thamas Faxon

head line at the Easting end of said Thayers land and then still 
on said Thayers land by a straight line until it comes to a cedar 
stake in the swampy or meadow lands belonging to the said Josiah 
Faxon aforesaid." 

Eliashib also conve3'S in the same deed a certain 
amount of salt marsh and woodland situated elsewhere. 

The only portion of Eliashib's deed requiring special 
explanation is that relating to the 24 acre lot. A 
proper understanding of this is a great help in locating 
the other divisions of the estate of Josiah^. For this 
purpose there must be a careful reading of all the other 
deeds. All the parties required access to the brook as 
a convenient watering place for the cattle. Eliashib's 
24 acre lot lay between Edward's on the east and Whit- 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 21 

marsh, the Heirs of Thomas*, and Joseph Thayer on the 
west. He had arranged with Capt. Richard* to have 
the southern line on the south side of the brook. The 
fence still standing there is perhaps on the same line. 
The irregularities on the west are due to the fact that 
the other divisions extended towards the east unequal 
distances. Examine the map with reference to the 
order and it will be seen that Josiah* took the first sec- 
tion on the north extending at least as far as Clement 
Hayden's house. Next came Joseph Thayer's lot 
which lay a little farther to the east than that of Whit- 
marsh which was south of it. Lydia Richards had sold 
her share to Ebenezer Whitmarsh in 1746, before the 
date of Eliashib's deed. Hence her share is called 
Whitmarsh's land in Eliashib's conveyance. It was 
partly bounded on the brook. The land of the Heirs of 
Thomas* was south of Whitmarsh and partly north of 
Lj'dia Richard's. All except Lydia Richard's touched 
the road on the west. Eliashib's 24 acre lot extended 
from the fence south of the brook, the dividing line be- 
tween himself and Richard*, then marked by stakes and 
trees, to his house lot above the cartway on the north. 

We cannot do more than is required to give the gen- 
eral and relative position of these owners. Without 
Eliashib's tortuous description we could not have done 
even this. 

Lydia* removed to West Bridgewater and her family 

never lived upon her inheritance. She describes it as 

follows in her deed to Ebenezer Wliitmarsh.

Ebenezer Whitmarsh. (Lib. 115, fol. 24.) Date,

wardly to a stake and stones joining on land belonging to the heirs 
of Thomas Faxon deceased, then westerly to a stake and stones ; 
then northwesterdly bounded by stakes and stones and marked trees 
to the stake in the meadow first mentioned, joining all the way on 
the laud belonging to the heirs of Thomas Faxon deceased." 

Ebenezer Whitmarsli and his wife Mehitable con- 
veyed to William Whitmarsli the following described 
land. (Lib, 115, fob 24.) Date, May 15, 1747. 

'•Laud bounded as follows : — Eastwardly on Eliashib Faxon ; 
Northwardly on Joseph Thayer ; Westwardly on the widow's 
thirds ; and southwardly on the brook partly, and partly on the 
Widow Ruth Faxon ; as also all our right and title iu the widow 
Mehitable Faxon's thirds." 

Joseph Tha3^er, Jr., conveyed his lot to William 
Whitmarsli and Clement Hay den. (Lib. 115, fol. 25, 
26.) 

A lot of land as follows : — (24 acres, 4 rods.) "Being all that 
land laid off to my mother's right of my grandfather's Josiah Fax- 
on estate — On the north side by land of Josiah Faxon — On the 
East end by land of Benjamin Veazey — On the south side by lands 
of Ebenezer Whitmarsli ; and on the west end by the way or road 
leading through the common." 

Haj^den and Whitmarsli afterwards made a division. 

For a full understanding of Whitmarsh's land it is 
necessary now to dispose of tliafe of the heirs of 
Thomas'*. 

Josiah* seems toliave received it. The Suffolk Deeds, 
(Lib. 85, fol. 222, Oct. 24, 1748,) give the following:— 

Thomas Faxon, cord wain er, to Josiah Faxon, weaver. 
Thomas calls himself the son of Thomas and grandson 
of Josiah, and conveys to said Josiah* all the right in 
the estate of his grandfather Josiah which his father 
Thomas* or his heirs ever had. 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 23 

This Thomas^ had removed to Hanover in 1749, and 
was afterwards in Pembroke. Josiah convej^ed this 
land to Zachariah Marquand and Clement Ha3^den. 

Deed of Josiah Faxon to Zachariah Marquand. (Lib. 
84, fol. 173.) Date, Feb 14, 1754. 
Ten acres, " bounded as follows, Viz. : Easterly on land belong- 
ing to Clement Hayden, Northerly on land belonging to Ebenezer 
Whitmarsh, Northwest on the Town way, Southerly on land be- 
longing to Ebenezer Whitmarsh." 

Clement Haj'den seems never to have had his deeds 
recorded ; but the following to William Whitmarsh de- 
scribes the other part of the land of " Heirs of Thomas." 
(Lib. 115, fol. 27.) Date, March 16, 1754. 

"A lot of laud being part of the 5th lot draughted out in the divi- 
sion of the estate of Josiah Faxon — bounded as follows : Westerly 
by Marquand's land : Northerly by William Whitmarsh 's land : 
Easterly by Veasey's land : and Southerly by Ebenezer Whit- 
marsh's land." 

It should be kept in mind that the land of Ebenezer 
Whitmarsh on the south was that bought of Lydia 
Richards. 

Probably Widow Ruth Faxon had a small piece on 
the brook which came into the possession of Ebenezer 
Whitmarsh ; and here was probably the house of the 
heirs of Thomas^, perhaps a little east of the Tower 
house. 

After the return of Thomas^ to Braintree he owned 
land on the old road leading from Benjamin Savil's to 
William Harmon's. He sold this with a house and 
barn thereon Oct. 1, 1771. (Lib. 121, fol. 176-7.) He 
was then living in Leicester. 

Soon after the death of his father William Whit- 
marsh made the following conveyance to Benjamin 
Hayden. His land then included 70 acres. 



24 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

William Whitmarsli to Benjamin Hayden. (Lib. 115, 
fol. 30.) Date, June 3, 1769. 

" Easterly on land of Benjamin Veazie. Southerly on a certain 
brook of water, beginning at the corner of the aforesaid Veazie 's 
line and running Westerly on the brook to the road near Mar- 
quand's house ; and westerly on said road. Northerly on land of 
said Marqnand parth^ and partly on land of Clement Hayden and 
Josiah Eaxon.^' 

The Whitmarsli homestead was probably the Tower 
house, the cellar of which is still to be seen in the local- 
ity given on the map. In 1774 James Tower married 
Elizabeth, daughter of William Whitmarsli. The rec- 
ords of Braintree and of Suffolk county give no subse- 
quent account of the Whitmarsh family. The position of 
Whitmarsh's name on the map is intended to indicate 
that he owned in 1769 all the land along the brook from 
Veazie's line (Eliashib's) to the road near Marquand's 
house. 

That Whitmarsh purchased of Veazie a small amount 
of land to straighten the line on the east is shown by 
Suffolk Deeds, (Lib. 115, fol. 28,) Aug, 3, 1768. 

The site of Clement Hayden's house is a spot well 
known by tradition. The house itself is remembered by 
some of the older residents of Braintree. Only the re- 
mains of the cellar are now to be seen. It is in a small 
cleared space on the north side of the old cartway, about 
122 rods east from a point on the old road opposite 
Caleb Faxon's house ; a large and vigorous oak stands 
in front of the cellar. No deed shows how Ha^^den ac- 
quired the quarter of an acre on which his house stood. 
He seems to be better remembered than his former 
neighbors who held a wider domain ; and this old land- 
mark in the midst of a flourishing wilderness will not 
soon be forgotten, (h.) 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 25 

James Faxon^ took the western portion of his father 
Eichard's estate. The house, or a part of it, is still 
standing on Granite street. It once had nearly twice 
its present dimensions. Here James^ lived, and for a 
time his son Charles^ NathanieF, son of James'', owned 
it in 1856 ; and he was probably the last proprietor of 
the name of Faxon on the old estate. The home of 
Charles'" and his son James M^ was afterwards on the 
opposite side of Granite street in the place now owned 
by Mr. Carver. The site of the old mansion of James^ 
with the house thereon is now the property of Dr. 
Simonds. (i.) 

By some means not shown by the records James^ 
acquired some of the land north of the brook. He con- 
veyed some of this to James Faxon''. This deed gives 
the position of the land at the west end set off as Widow 
Mehitable's Thirds. 

Deed of James Faxon to James Faxon, Jr. (Lib. 121, 
fol. 211.) Date, Feb. 27, 1772. 

" Certain pieces or parcels of land situate lying and being in the 
middle parish in Braintree, Viz. : one peice being the homestead 
lately belonging to Clement Hayden of Braintree aforesaid

Moore's farm through the North Commons, Northerly on land 
lately belonging to Josiah Faxon. Easterly on said Josiah Faxon 
and partly on William Whitmarsh's land, and Southerly on Mr. 
Marquand's land containing 25 acres be same more or less. To- 
gether with another peice adjacent, being three of the thirds or 
dower laid off to the Widow Josiah Faxon deceased of Braintree 
aforesaid, said thirds or dower bounded as follows viz. : Easterly on 
the aforesaid road leading from Moore's farm thro the Common 
aforesaid. Southerly on the brook the dividing line between 
Thomas and Josiah Faxon, and Westerly partly on William Har- 
mon and partly on Ensign Thomas Thayer's land, and Northerly 
on land formerly known by Braintree North Commons, viz. : three 
shares in said thirds or dower." 



26 HISTORY OF THE FAXOX FAMILY. 

Caleb Faxon^ received by tlie following deed a portion 
of tbis same land from his brother James'', or from his 
father James^ (Lib. 154, fol. 45. Date, April 4, 1781.) 

"A certain tract of upland and freash meadow containing by 
estimation ten acres, be the same more or less, and is butted and 
bounded as follows viz. : Westerly on the land of William Her- 
man, Northerly on land of Deacon Moses French, Southerly on the 
brook near Zachariah Marquand, Easterly on the Town road thro 
the Common so called." 

Probably James^ had conveyed a part of the "Wid- 
ow's Thirds " to William Harmon. 

The new house standing in the bend of the old road 
on the west side marks the site of that of Caleb^. The 
" Widow's Thirds " are again mentioned as the South- 
ern limit of land conveyed by William Whitmarsh to 
Moses French, Jr. The land was a part of the " North 
Commons." (Lib. 118, fol. 19L Date, April 6, 1768 ) 

We do not assert that the line of the North Com- 
mons is straight as drawn on the map. That line is 
given only as a general limit. In a deed of the town 
of Braintree to Zachariah Marquand, it appears that the 
wall, already referred to, on William Harmon's land 
was the south bound of the North Commons in 
1765. (k.) (Lib. 104, fol. 130.) 

It is not an easy matter to determine the position of 
the house of Josiah"*. There is a strong probability 
that he and his heirs, or at least Isaiah^, had a house 
near the old road in the northwest corner of Josiah's 
share. The following deed gives some light. It is 
from Jonathan Faxon*^ to Elisha Nightingale. Norfolk 
Co. Deeds, (Lib. 10, fol. 148. Date, Nov. 9, 1796.) Jona- 
than^ received this land by conversance from his father 
Isaiah^, son of Josiah"*.

Clement Hayden Southerly on land of Caleb Faxon Westerly on

the land of Dea" Moses French." 

Jonathan removed to Peterboro, N. H. 

Without explaining the changes of proprietors, we can 
state that the old cellar on the cleared field a few rods 
from Clement Haj^den's house, towards the east, is. 
according to tradition of a reliable character, the site 
of the Nightingale house. This is on the first lot de- 
scribed in the deed. The second piece is on the old 
road, in the northwest corner of Josiah's share, where a 
dwelling house still stands. 

We have deferred to the last the interesting question 
of the location of the homestead of Thomas^ A review 
of the preceding papers, the consideration of the circum- 
stances of the family of Thomas^ a personal examina- 
tion of the premises, and tradition all tend to one de- 
cision. 

The east end of the tract was most accessible to the 
church and town. The continuation of the highway 
until it reached the way leading to " Goodman Faxon," 
approached the road now called Cherry street in a way 
to render the latter a still further part of the highway 
to the Common. There was then only one church, and 
th it was in the Xorth Precinct, or Quinc3^ The North 
Precinct was the center of business and population. 
The old house situated on the south side of the brook, 
ou the lane leading from Common street, was, undoubt- 
edly, the home of ThomasV The large fireplaces, the 



28 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

ancient hinges, tlie woodwork within and without, are 
indicative of great age, notwithstanding the changes 
and repairs which must have been made in the course of 
so many years. The whole arrangement of the interior 
resembles so closely that of Josiah'^, as to suggest that 
one was modeled from the other. The barn is no longer 
standing at either place, but the foundation of each is 
to be seen. The large stones at the entrance on Com- 
mon street are the remains of an old gateway. On 
this spot Thomas^ and liis sons lived and carried on to- 
gether the business of farming. At first his family con- 
sisted of himself, his wife Joane, his daughter Joanna, 
and his two sons, Thomas- and E-ichard-. Thomas^ held 
no land. He and his wife died in 1662, leaving four 
young daughters, who were probably cared for in the 
family of Thomas\ Joanna'- married Anthony Fisher, 
Jr., in 1647, and afterwards lived in Dedham. Eich- 
ard'- was married before 1655, had a large family, and 
died in 1672. His will shows that he owned a house at 
the time of his decease, and his father confirmed his be- 
quest of land, afiirming that it was on the " Norwest 
side of ye Mill brook." 

In his will Richard- left only a nominal sum to his 
sou Thomas'^, for the reason that the grandfather, 
Thomas^, was to provide for him. The property of 
Richard^ ultimately went to JosialA That of Thomas^, 
at the date of his decease in 1680, became, as the settle- 
ment shows, the inheritance of Thomas^ We cannot 
doubt that as the sole heir he took the house of his 
grandfather. Thomas'^ died in 1690, at the early age 
of 28 years, leaving two children Mary'* and Richard^ 
In 1707 the division describing the land which they 
inherited from their father was made. Richard^ took 
the better part of the estate with the buildings. No 



THE OLD HOMESTEADS. 29 

buildings are mentioned in Mary's share, which was at 
the west end of the tract. 

The descendants of Thomas^ gradually left the old 
homestead for more extensive and j)rofitable farms or to 
engage in other occupations. The line of Josiah^, and 
the Whitmarsh family had all removed before the close 
of the last century. Those ^vho still recall the children 
of James', sometimes point to the house on Granite 
street as the " old Faxon place." The east end had 
ceased to be occupied by the family long before the 
memory of any now living ; and present proprietors 
have little knowledge of the fact that it was once the 
property of the Faxons. 

Charles Faxon' retained the true tradition of the 
ancient homestead of Thomas^ and conducted the author 
to the spot in 1860. Eighteen years after, the docu- 
mentary evidence leads to the same conclusion, that the 
first homestead of the Faxon family in Braintree was at 
the old house on the south side of the brook, on the 
lane leading from the w^est side of Common street. 

The house is marked on the Braintree Map of 1856, 
with the name of Mrs. S. B. C. Capen. 



NOTES. 



The will of Peter Le Marquand is dated Sept. 19, 1769. Probate, 
Julys, 1772. 

He gives to Sarah Sylvester five shillings, to be paid to her three 
months after his decease. This with what advantages she had re- 
ceived out of his estate was to be her share. In case she should come 
to want she was to have a room in the east end of his house, and 
wood from his farm for one fire. He mentions his grandchildren, 
William JIarmon, Margaret Thayer, Zachariah Marquand Thayer* 



30 HISTORY OF THE FAXOX FAMILY. 

Susanna Arnold, and Marg:aret Arnold, to each of -whom he leaves a 
sum of money. He leaves all the residue of his estate to his sou 
Zachariali Marquand. 

The will of Zachariah Marquand is dated April 10, 1784. Probate, 
Oct. 9, 1787. 

He gives to his nephew, William Harmon, his heirs and assigns 
the land where his dwelling house stands, about half an acre ; also 
all the money that William Harmon owes him by notes. 

He gives to his niece, Margaret Thayer, wife of Noah Thayer, a 
half part of his swamp land in "Bear Swamp," and to Noah Thayer, 
Jr., the other half. 

He leaA'es to Sarah Nye £13. 6s. 8d. 

He gives to Zachariah Marquand Thayer, his heirs and assigns 
all the remainder of his estate, real and personal, and makes him 
his executor. 

This will is witnessed by James Tower, Nathaniel Holbrook and 
Caleb Faxon. 

The mother of William Harmon was Sarah Marquand, daughter 
of Peter. 

The name of Peter Marquand's wife was Sarah. 

B. 

John Capen was married in 1722. Children are recorded in 1737. 

The land in Cochata, or some of it, was on the road from Hol- 
brook to Weymouth. 

C. 

The land conveyed by Edward Faxon to Hollis, is now OAvned by 
S. W. Hollis. 

D. 

Daniel Hayden and wife Miriam, conveyed to Azariah Faxon, 
Feb. 12, 1762, (Suffolk Deeds, lib. 108, fol. 225-6,) their home- 
stead, 25 acres, and other lau^, with saw-mill, gristmill, etc., 
bounded as follows : — 

" Easterly on land of Abraham Thayer. Northerly on the land 
of Jonathan Thayer, as the fence now stands. Westerly on the 
road leading to Cocheco. Southerly on Monatequot Ei-ver. afore- 
said, containing one half the River adjoining to the land of John 
Hollis, being the whole of my homestead place." 

This became the homestead of Azariah Faxon^, and the site of the 
old mill is still well known.

The following ghes the location of a portion of " Aldridge's 
Farm." 

Deed of James Faxon to Benjamin French. Date, March 28, 1766. 
(Lib. 116, fol. 201.) 

"A certain piece or parcel of land being and lying in Braintree 
aforesaid, in Aldridge's Farm so called, it being a part of the little 
meadow on the northerly side of Moore's river, bounded Easterly on 
James Penniman partly & partly on John Vinton. Westerly on 
said Benjamin French. Northerly on William French, and South- 
erly on the river, containing two acres and a half." 

This was probably apart of the land (100 acres) purchased by 
James Faxon and others, of Samuel Tucker of Milton. 



Perhaps the " Mill Pond " as it was called in those days. " Mill 
Brook " flowed into this pond. 

G. 

Lemuel Thayer was the son of John and Mary (Wales) Thayer, 
grandson of John and Mary Thayer, and great grandson of Thomas 
and Hannah Tliayer. 

H. 

Clement Hayden lived at one time in the house owned by Josiah 
Faxon*. In the records of the town of Braintree credit is given to 
said Clement for rent money paid by him to the town for the place 
formerly OAvned by Josiah Faxon*. 

I. 

It is not certain that any portion of the old house of James is still 
standing. It is possible that the old building was entirely removed, 
and a new one erected on the spot. 

K. 

Agreement with Josiah Faxon. 
In 1756 a committee was appointed to settle the controversy be- 
tween the town of Braintree and Josiah Faxon, relative to the line 
between said Josiah Faxon and the "Commons" land. In 1757, 
an agreement was made between the parties in question, was 
signed by Josiah Faxon, and by James Penniman and Samuel Niles, 
Jr., in behalf of the town, and was dulv recorded in the town records

as accepted by the town. It is an important proof of the north 
boundary of the Faxon purchase. 

" Beginning at a stake and heap of stones upon the side of a large 
ledge of rocks and from thence to run South East fifty degrees to 
the river ; then beginning at the stake and heap of stones afores^ 
and to run South West sixty one degrees about Fifty rods to a heap 
of stones upon the rocks near to said Faxon's old house ; from 
thence North West eighty six degrees one hundred and sixty six 
rods ; and from thence with what has been heretofore the reputed 
bounds round Moses Paine's land to a birch tree anciently mark^ ; 
from thence about South West twenty eight degrees to Aldridge's 
Farm (so called)." 

The above is probably a settlement of the whole northern line of 
the farm of Thomas Faxon^ The "river" is Mill Brook. 



History of the Faxon Family. 



FIRST GENKRATION. 

Thomas Faxon^ 

1. 

Thomas Faxon\ ancestor of the Faxon P'amily in 
the United States, born in England about 1601, came to 
America before 1647 with his wife, Joane, and three 
children. The earliest record of his family is found at 
Dedham, Mass., in the marriage of his daughter, 
Joanna, to Anthony Fisher, Jr., Sept. 7, 1647. His 
wife, Joane, appears upon the records in a single in- 
stance, in 1663, in giving her assent to a deed of an 
eighth part of Block Island conveyed by Thomas Faxon 
to John Williams of ^' Barnaby Streete in Southwarke 
within ye suburbs of London." The date of her ac- 
knowledgment of this deed is June 4, 1663 (Suff. 
Deeds, 4 : 54.) Her name seems to account for that of 
her daughter, Joanna. The record of her death is not 
found, l>ut is between 1663 and 1670 ; for Thomas^ was 
married Sept. 5, 1670 to Mrs. Sarah Savill, widow of 
"William Savill. (Braintree Records.) The maiden 
name of Mrs Savill is supposed to have been Jarmill. 
She had been the wife of Thomas Gannett of Duxbury, 
on^ of the original proprietors of Bridgewater. Thomas 
Gannett died in 1655, and her marriage to William 
Savill was subsequent to that date. (Mitchell's History 
of Bridgewater, j.p. 10, 31, 166.) The right to land in 
Bridgewater mentioned by Judge Mitchell in his history 
of that town, (p. 34) and included in the inventory of 
Thomas^ Faxon's cs'ate in 1680, (App. '^D"and Suff. 
Prob.,) WHS acquired through his second wife Sarah. 
The will of Widow Surah Faxon is found in Suffolk 



34 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

Probate 11 : 373, dated Aug 13, 1694, and was proved 
Xov. 25, 1697. She mentions her "daughter-in-law 
Lydia Savil, wife of Benjamin Savil of Braintrey," and 
her cousin, Euth, wife of Peter AVebb. 

The materials for a sketch of the life of our ancestor, 
Thomas Faxon', are to be found in the records of Brain- 
tree, in the deeds and probate of Suffolk county, to 
which Braintree then belonged, and in the Mass. Ar- 
chives, or in the printed volumes of the records of the 
Mass. Colony. From the evidence afforded by these we 
can acquire some knowledge of the number of his famih" 
at the date of emigration, and their names j of the 
amount of his propert}^, and his progress in the accumu- 
lation of wcijlth ; of the character of his occupation ; of 
his religious belief and tendencies ; of his associations 
with men and of the estimation in which he was held by 
the people of Braintree. These ancient records, if we 
stud}' them rightly, are not only a truthful but an inter- 
esting story of life. In the absence of the histor}^, which 
includes those only who have been sufficientlj^ prominent 
in political or religious affairs to deserve it, the remark- 
able system of records instituted in the infancy of the 
colonies is the only resource for becoming acquainted 
with those who have occupied less prominent positions. 
Kothing will be stated here that is not founded on the 
clearest evidence ; and in general the reference for the 
authorit}^ will be given. 

As stated in the first part of this sketch, the family of 
Thomas Faxon consisted, at the date of emigration of 
five persons, of himself^ his wife Joane, his daughter 
Joanna, and his two sons, Thomas'- and Pichard". 

That Thomas^ and Picliard'' were the sons of Thomas^ 
is evident from the will of Pichard- and the manner of its 
probate, and from the other documents published in the 
Appendix. It is supposed from the name and the date 
of his marriage that Thomas^ was the elder son. It 
was natural that the property of Thomas' should go by 
inheritance to the sons of Pichard'-, as Thomas- left no 
male heirs. It would seem from the date of her mar- 
riage, and from the probable age of her parents, that 
Joanna''^ was^the eldest child. Although it is asserted 
in the ''Folsom Genealogy," contained in the Gen. Peg. 



FIRST GENERATION. 35 

Vol. 33, p. 212, that a Hannah Faxon married Xathaniel 
Foiilsham June, 1674, a careful examination of the Hing- 
ham Records, sliows no mention of the name of Faxon ; 
but it is there stated that " Xathaniel Foulsham and 
Hannali Farrow the daughter of John ffarrow Senior 
were marrj^ed by Capt. Joshua Hobart on ye ninth day 
of June 1674." Again, in the Mass. Archives occurs 
the name of Jno. Faxton of Hingliam in the list of 
wounded at the Indians' Fort at ISTarragansett ; and the 
names of Ensign John Faxon and Ensign Nathaniel 
Faxon are in the lists of those present at the siege of 
Louisbourg in 1745, collected by Hon. Charles Hudson 
of Lexington, Mass. If these are not errors, no evi- 
dence exists thot they were in any way connected with 
the family of Thomas Faxon^ of Braintree. On the 
contrary, the entire absence of any mention of them in 
the deeds, wills, settlements of estates and other records 
induces us to believe them of another family. That 
Joanna was an only daughter seems to be asserted in the 
letters of administration granted on the estate of Thomas 
Faxon to ^' Sarah, his relict, and Joanna ffisher, widow, 
his only daughter." (Ajipendix " D " and Suff. Prob. 
9: 19) In the will of the grandson, Thomas'^, made in 
1690, in which he mentions all his near relatives, there 
is no reference to any Hingham famil3^ (Appendix 
and Suff. Prob. 8 : 60.) These reasons are quite con- 
clusive as to the number and names of the family, and 
Mnll also account for the order in the genealogy which 
follows ; for no dates of birth of the children of Thomas^ 
have 3'et been found, and no age is given on the record 
of deaths. 

The deed in which the name of " Joane,'- the wife of 
Thomas^ appears, is the only reliable proof of her name. 
The records of the First Church of Braintree, (now the 
First Church of Quincy,) prior to 1672, are missing. 
Hence many interesting facts and dates are lost. 

Unless Thomas^ accumulated property very rapidly 
after his arrival in America, he must have possessed a 
competence in England, and must have brought a con- 
siderable amount with him. His first purchase of land 
was made May 14, 1656 (Suff. Deeds 34 : 184.) The 
deed is fully published in the Appendix as a specimen 



36 IIISTOKY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

of the mode of convej-ancing, and as describing with 
clearness and accuracy the hmd, of \vhich a part is even 
now called the " Faxon Meadows." To tlie j^resent time, 
after many divisions and subdivisions, it has continued 
in part in the family possession, and till recently', in the 
family name. The boundaries are natural and imper- 
ishable, and are readily found as we follow the line of 
the first primitive road which winds around it. It ap- 
pears that at the date of the deed Thomas' occupied the 
land as a tenant of the owner, Rev. b'amuel Haugh of 
Reading This tract was situated in the jDresent town 
of Braintree, and contained 450 acres, according to the 
deed ; but there was little precision in giving the quan- 
tity of land in those daj^s, and it must have been much 
more. The location of it is fully explained in the ar- 
ticle on that subject and in the map. The considera- 
tion was £270. Here, probablj^ assisted by his sons, he 
engaged in his usual occupation of farming and stock- 
raising. His means for this must have been consider- 
able, and the amount of purchase money, £270, was not 
a small sum for the times. 

The next purchase was made from John Richards, a 
merchant of Boston, of land in the precincts of Dorches- 
ter, 180 acres; consideration, £400. This land was 
at the time, Jan. 10, 1666, in the possession of a tenant 
(Sutfolk Deeds, 5 : 171) ; and the tenant, Henry Lead- 
better, is named in the inventory of Thomas^'s estate. 
(Suff. Prob. 9: 34) This was therefore an investment 
of acquired mone}^, and the prem'ises were leased till the 
death of Thomas'. (App. '' C " and '' D.") 

The purchase of an eighth part of Block Island, pre- 
viously stated, seems to have been made by Thomas' for 
the benefit of the person to whom he immediatelj' trans- 
ferred it. It was bought of John Alcocke. (Suff. Deeds 
4 : 53.) 

At the probate of the will of his son, Richard', Jan. 
29, 1674, (App. "E'' and Suff. Prob.) Thomas' ap- 
pears in court and confirms the bequest made in liis 
son's will ; and thus passes a title to the land, which up 
to this time had been merely verbal, land which Rich- 
ard- had held and disposed of in accordance with an oral 
agreement with his father. The family of Richard was 



FIRST GENERATION. 37 

large, and the prosperity of his son, Josiah^ indicates a 
good inheritance, and the subsequent division of the 
estate of Josiah^, (App. "G" and Suff. Prob.,) embrac- 
ing part of the same land described in Haugh's deed, 
proves the source of it. 

After the decease of Thomas^ in 1680, the residue of 
the estate, as it had been previously determined and an- 
nounced, was settled on the favorite grandson, Thomas". 
To carry out the wishes of the grandfather, expressed 
in no written will, but sacredly observed. Widow Sarah 
Faxon and Mrs. Anthony Fisher were to have charge 
of the estate until the heir, Thomas^ should be of age. 

The amount of the inventory of Thomas^ was £859 
3s. 2d. Considering the fact that he had evidently 
given much to Richard-'; and that probably Thomas-, 
who died in 1662, had also received in due proportion 
in his lifetime, it is evident that Thomas^ had conducted 
his affairs wisely and prosperously", and had secured the 
rewards of enterprise and industr3\ 

The papers referred to in the Appendix show that 
Thomas^ was quite extensively engaged in farming. It 
is evident from tlie inventory of the estate of Thomas- 
that he followed the same occupation ; though it does 
not appear that he owned land at the time of his de- 
cease. That they were agriculturists in good circum- 
stances in England is a reasonable conclusion. 

It is unfortunate for us that the earlier records of the 
First Church of Braintree cannot be found. On them 
must have been recorded the membership of Thomas^ 
and probably of others of his familj'-. That l.e was a 
member of the church is evident from the fact that he 
was permitted to tahe the freeman's oath in May 6, 
1657, and that he was a representative from Braintree 
in 16fJ9. For either event church membership was, by 
the laws of the colony, essential. (Mass. Rec. Vol. IV. 
Part II. p. 420 ; also Vol IV. Part I. p. 206.) His emi- 
gration from England was probably 'induced in part by 
religious intolerance, and in part by the encroachments 
of taxation and oppression in the troubled reign of King 
Charles I. Our fathers were chiefl}^ influenced to emi- 
grate by the desire to enjoy their own mode of worship 
and faitli ; but, to the agriculturist, the civil war and 



38 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

the illegal taxation ■svliicli preceded it, and, in a meas- 
ure continued with it, were specially injurious. These 
reasons combined rendered the period one of emigration. 
That the motive of worldly gain was not the predomi- 
nant one is evident from the fact that when the war put 
an end to religious persecution on the one side, emigra- 
tion decreased, and for a time ceased entirely. 

The associates of Thomas^ are seen in the administra- 
tion of estates, in the management of public affairs, in 
his second marriage, and in the marriages of his chil- 
dren and grandchildren. We find him first with An- 
thony Fisher, Jr , one of the most prominent of the 
earl}^ settlers of Dedham. Fisher was intimately asso- 
ciated in business wutli Capt. Lusher. In accordance 
with the custom of the times Lusher performed for 
Fisher the legal ceremony of marriage. This marriage 
occurring probably soon after the arrival of Thomas' in 
this country, leads to the belief that the Fishers and 
Faxons were acquainted before the emigration. The 
marriage of Thomas' with Sarah Savill ; of Thomas"'* 
with Deborah Thayer, daughter of Richard Thayer ; of 
the children of Thomas^ with the Savill, the Weld, the 
Bass, and the Wales families ; of Widow Elizabeth 
Faxon with Caleb Hobart, of Josiali^ with the daughter 
of Edmund Adams, all indicate the social surroundings 
of Thomas'. Persons with whom he had business rela- 
tions have been previously named. 

Of his family relations, what better picture can we 
have than the wills and settlements already quoted. 
The liberal kindness with which he bestowed his prop- 
ert}', the spirit of confidence which accepts a verbal 
conveyance of land, the trust reposed in Mrs. Fisher and 
the wife Sarah for the 3'oung grandson, Thomas", the 
spirit of the will of Thomas'' in 1690, give us a most 
pleasing and vivid idea of the harmony, good will, and 
mutual confidence and regard of the members of our an- 
cestor's family in the Seventeenth century. 

We have the strongest proof of the esteem in which 
he was held by his fellow-citizens. He was often ap- 
pointedto transact bu siness of importance for the town 
of Braintree. When it became necessary to secure 
from the Indians a deed, extinguishing their title to 



SECOND GENERATIOX. 39 

some of tlie land of the town, lie was one of the commis- 
sioners for that purpose. (Gazetteer of Mass, p. 426.) 
He was generally termed Mr. Thomas Faxon. On one 
of the earliest records, he is once called " Goodman " 
Faxon. As early as April 30, 1662, he appears at the 
county court held at Boston, as a plaintiff in behalf of 
the town, in a case of trespass on the town right in 
lands. He was a representative or deputy from Brain- 
tree in 1669, and one of the selectmen in 1670—72. 

If the record of Thomas Faxon' does not place him 
above a respectable mediocrity in wealth and social 
standing, it gives him a life witliout reproach, an ability 
capable of success in worldly affairs, and a character 
adapted by its worth and quality to secure the esteem of 
men. He died ]S"ov. 23, 1680.

SECOND GEXERATIOX. 41 

The will of KicharcP (Appoiiclix '^E") gives us a 
good idea of his relations with his father. During his 
lifetime his father had given him land situated on the 
" Korth west side of 3'e JNlill brook." At the probate of 
the will the father confirms the gift, a primitive way of 
transferring land, not suited to the present day. The 
son of Richard", named for Thomas^ was evidently a 
favorite of the latter. It will be seen that he mentions 
in his will, his father, Thomas', his wife Elizabeth, his 
sons, Josiah, Richard, Thomas, his daughters, Marj^, 
Sarah, Hannah, and Abigail. Children not mentioned 
in the will died in infancy, or before the date of the 
probate of will, Jan. 29,' 1674-5. He died Dec. 20, 
1674. His widow m. Jan. 15, 1675-6, (his third wife,)

44 HISTORY OF THE FAXOX FAMILY. 

The inscriptions of the West Roxbury central hury- 
ing-ground, Peter's Hill, differ in the a^e given at date 
of deatli from the record of births. Thus Mrs. Jacob 
Chamberlain is said to be 84 3'ears of age at decease, 
and other instances will be observed in the date of de- 
cease of the children, if the age given is compared witli 
the date of birth. Experience proves that the inscrip- 
tions on tomb stones are not alwaj^s reliable.

He settled in Braintree about 1675. He bought 
twenty acres of the ''Iron Works Land" of Thomas

in " Monotoquod," or the present town of Braintree. 
He was deacon in the original church of Braintree, and 
was ordained Euling Elder in the same church, Feb. 27, 
1700-1. He was the ancestor of probably the greater

He was forced to join the unfortunate expedition of Sir 
William Phipps. Before it sailed for Canada the small 
pox broke out, and Thomas'' fell a victim to it. He left 
a will, the oricjinal of which is carefully preserved in the 
files of Suffolk Probate. It is published in the Appen- 
dix as an important piece of evidence in regard to the 
earlier generations of the family. He died, 1690, and 
was buried at Weymouth, Mass. He seems to have

JosiAH Faxox^ (Josiah^, Eichard^, Thomas^,) b. in 
Braintree, May 23, 1690, son of Josialr and Mehitable 
(Adams) Faxon, m Jan. 13, 1717-18, Deborah Tlia3'er, 
bapt. April 11, 1697, dan. of Eichard and Rebecca 
(Micall) Tliayer. The}^ were m. by the Rev. Mr. Marsh. 
His wife, Deborah, was admitted to the church of the 
Middle Precinct, 1719. Tlie baptism of the children 
occurs regularly on the church records. The record of 
deaths in this particular family is very defective. A 
most thorough and extensive search of records shows no 
more than we have given in this work. The probability 
is that Josiah', Deborah', Ebenezer', AbigaiP (b. 1736), 
died young, and that we have given a full account of de- 
scendants. He may have been a weaver. (Suff. Deeds, 
85 : 222.) In this deed Thomas"', {Thomas', Josiah^ Pilch- 
ard^, Thomas^,) cordwainer, conveys to Josiah Faxon, 
weaver, all right in the estate of his grandfather, 
Josiah\ which his father, Thomas^, or his heirs ever had. 
From an entry in the records of Braintree, it would 
seem that Mrs. Deborah Faxon died about 1783. 
Josiah'' was living in 1775, and in that year conveyed 
his land and house to the town of Braintree. (Suff. 
Deeds, 127 : 137.) He died soon after.

able Faxon, m. April 3, 1733, Ebenezer Wliitniarsh, 
b. March 10, 1688, son of Ebenezer and Christian 
Whitmarsh of Weymouth, Mass. In 1743 he was ad- 
mitted to full communion in the Middle Precinct 
Church. In 1734, in the division of the estate of 
Josiah^, of which he draws a share, he is said to be of 
Abington. The Weymouth records give " a purpose of 
marriage between Ebenezer Whitmarsh of Abington, 
and Elizabeth Dyer of Weymouth," Nov. 18, 1715. 
The records of Abington show the following children of 
Ebenezer and Elizabetli (D^^er) Whitmarsh. Ruth, b. 
June 23, 1718; Mary, b. May 17, 1721; William, b. 
Sept 22, 1723; Matthew, b. Sept. 9, 1726. In the 
will of Ebenezer Whitmarsh, which is dated Aug. 28, 
1760, he mentions his wife Elizabeth, and gives her 
"that part of my dwelling-house tliat I now improve." 
Tlie death of Mehitable^ i< not found on any record. In 
a deed of Ebenezer and jNIehitable Whitmarsh to Wil- 
liam Wliitmarsh, in whicli is conveyed a portion of 
land probably received from the estate of Josiah Faxon'^, 
and in wdiich they give up their right and title in 



FOURTH GENERATIOX. 51 

"Widow MeliitaLle Faxon's thirds," the date, Hay 15, 
1747, is found. (Suffolk Deeds, 115 : 24.) The decease 
of Mehitable is, of course, subsequent to that . date. 
There is no record of a third marriage of Ebenezer 
Whitmarsh except the fact sliown hy tlie wilL In his 
will he also mentions his son William, to whom he gives 
his "new dwelling-house, and all the lands adjoining, 
woodlands, cedar and swamp and other lands."' He 
calls Ruth Hunt, Mary Blanchard and Joanna French, 
his daughters. Up to this time (1878) no record of the 
birth of Joanna has been found. TheBraintree records 
give the marriages of John Hunt and liuth Witmarsh, 
Feb 28, 1740 ; Samuel Blanchard and JVDuy Whitmarsh, 
June 4, 1743, and Nehemiah French and Joanna W hit- 
marsh, Dec. 9, 1750. The marriage of William Whit- 
marsh is given in l^o. 106 to Elizabeth Hayden', 
dau. of Benjamin and Elizabeth (Faxon^) Ilaj^den. 

Ebenezer Whitmarsh and his son AVilliam seem to 
have owned and occupied a part of the original estate of 
Thomas Faxon', which was acquired b\' marriage with 
Mehitable"*, and by conveyance. A part of this land 
now owned b}^ Caleb S. Hollis is still known as "Whit- 
marsh Plain." In the deeds, Ebenezer is always called 
" gentleman." The probate of his will is dated April 
14, 1769; no record of his death is found. Ebenezer be- 
came a member of Mr, Niles' society in 1743 ; his dau. 
Mary, in the same jear ; his dau. Hutli, in 1757. 

The father of Ebenezer was b. May 14, 1658, in 
Weymouth, Mass., and was the son of John and Sarah 
Whitmarsh.

his father's will in 17G0, the date of his decease is prior

Dec. 1, 1735."

52 HISTORY OF THE FAXOX FAMILY. 

He m. 2nd, Mercy Wells of Milton, Mass., Dec. 7, 1749. 
(Church records of First Church of Braintree, now of 
Qiiiney.) He was a member of the Middle Precinct 
Church in 1738, resided at Braintree, and was a farmer. 
His father deeded to him, Oct. 13, 1731, a part of his 
homestead. (Suff. Deeds, 46 : 83.) This was attended 
with certain conditions relative to the future residence 
and support of Mehitable. His widow, Mercy, sur- 
vived him, joine I in a deed, Sept. 8, 1777, to relin- 
quish right of dower to certain parcels of land which 
Edward' and Zerviah convej^ed to Daniel Hollis of 
Braintree. (Suff. Deeds, 135 : 105.) A will of per- 
sonal property made by her is preserved by Mr. Ezra 
AVhitcomb (see Ko. 357). This Edward'* had an ac- 
count book, evidently the propert}?- of his father, Josiah^, 
containing entries in 1687, in the handwriting peculiar 
to that time. This is also preserved by Mr Whitcomb.

Kichard Faxon was appointed guardian in 1748. Per- 
haps their mother had been guardian and was lately 
deceased." (Vinton Memorial.) 

The supposition in the last sentence is incorrect, as it 
appears by her marriage to Thaj'er.

Milton, Mass (m. by Rev. Peter Tliaclier). He was a 
conhvainer, and was also called a tanner. (Suffolk 
Deeds, 45 : 174.) He received probaLly an eighth part 
of the estate of his father, Josiahl (Siiff. Prob. and 
Div. of Estate in Append.) His wife also held property 
in her own right in Milton. (Snff. Deeds, 45 : 174.) 

He and his wife were members of the First Congrega- 
tional Church of Braintree. We find him at Pembroke 
as early as Feb. IG, 1749. (Plymouth Deeds, 50 : 209.) 
He resided at that place till his decease, 1761. The 
amount of the inventory of his estate, real and personal, 
is £140 7s. 7d. His Braintree residence is shown on 
the map.

"A certain piece of land lying in Pembroke aforesaid, containing 
one acre and is bounded as followeth, viz. : Beginning at a stake 
and stones standing by the easterly side of the highway tliat leads

Rev. Mr. Marsh.) 

In recording the name of his wife, he uses "Anna or 
Hannah." This shows that these names were consid- 
ered the same. He was chosen town clerk, March 7, 1736, 
and held the office seventeen years. His writing upon 
the records, exact, clear, and of the full, round hand, is 
one of the best specimens of the period. He seems to

have fully appreciated the importance of a complete and 
correct record. After his election, March 26, 1737, he 
made this entry in the town book : 

*' Richard Faxon, son of Thomas and Mar\-, b. Sept. 4, 1686, Anna 
or Hannah his wife, July 18, 1687. They were married Dec. 29th, 
1709 l)y Revd. Joseph Marsh. Their children were born as follows, 
namely." ( Here follow the names of the children and the dates of 
birth.) " Entered here March 26th, 1737, by Richard Faxon at this 
time town clerk." 

To him we are largely indebted for the sj^stem and 
thoroughness of record which have preserved so well the 
genealogy of the earl}^ inhabitants of Braintree. Even 
at the present day he is spoken of as " Kichard, the 
town clerk." That he eminently deserved the title, 
renders it more honorable than the somewhat common 
one of Captain which he derived from his connection 
with the militia. He was also Town Treasurer, Justice of 
the Peace and seemed to possess the confidence and good 
will of his fellow citizens. He and his wife were mem- 
bers of the Middle Precinct Church in full communion. 
The title of " Gentleman," which is attached to his name 
on the record of probate (Suff. Prob. 67 : 10.) is in this 
instance not wholly unmeaning. In the study of the 
several lines of our race, it is interesting to trace to this 
source, the enterprise, intelligence, and high character 
of descendants. He d. Ma}^ o, 1768. She d. Oct. 16, 
1769. They are buiied in the ancient cemetery oppo- 
site the church in a lot near the iron fence on the street, 
where many others of this family are also interred.

any. He was a member of the cliurcli as appears by an 
entry in 1748 and in 1761. In the last he is said to have

bury, Oct. 13, 1757. This Isaialr^ proLaLly d. Feb. 12, 
1810. The onlj^ record of the death seems to he an 
entry in tlie Boston Gazette of Feb. 1810. "Isaiali 
Faxon, set. 32 (perhaps meant for 82). His funeral 
will be from No. 4 Back St. this afternoon at three 
o'clock ; friends and relatives are requested to attend 
without a more ^mrticular invitation." Mr Samuel 
Leeds, a son of Martha*^ remembers, as he thinks, going 
to this funeral in his boyhood, at the request of his 
I^arents. He remembers that he was an old man. The 
mistake in the age is not remarkable, when we consider 
that one who transcribed the record from the Hoston 
Gazette for the city of Boston made the name Josiah 
instead of Isaiah, an error which caused much useless 
searching. After his death his widow probablj' removed 
to Peterboro, N. H., with her son Jonathan. She d. 
at that place Oct. 14, 3826, a?t. 91. He lived in 
Braiiitree, as did his son Jonathan, and we find occa- 
sional mention of some of his children on the records ; 
but none of the births are found there. An entry on 
the selectmen's order book indicates that he was living 
at Braintree in 1789. He is called "yeoman " in Suf-

Phileua Gannett, a native of Bridgewater, Mass., with 
whom he lived in the married state about 65 yeai-s. She 
still survives her husband at the age of 83. Soon after 
his marriage Mr. Hayford removed to Tamworth, where 
lie lived till his death. The deceased outlived nearly 
all his generation. He lived till nearly every otticer 
and soldier under whom he served, and who shared witJi 
him the hardships and dangers of the march, the cami, 
and the liattle-field had gone down to the dust. It was a 
soul stirring spectacle to look into the coffin of this man, 
and, as we gazed upon the sleeping dust, to reflect upon 
the varied scenes of nearlj- a hundred years through 
which the sleeper had passed. Allowing thirty years to 
a generation, he had lived till more than three gener- 
ations of his fellow men had passed off ihe stage. We 
could but think of the great changes which had taken 
place in his beloved country in his dav. He had lived 
in the time of four wai*s in wliich his country was en 
gaged, — that of the French and Indian, the Kevolu- 
tionary, the last war with Great Britain, and that Avith 
Mexico. ]Mr. HaA-ford retained liis bodily and mental 
powers in a remarkable measure for a man of his years. 
1'he last winter he was al)le to chop considerable wood 
at his door, and at tlie last INIarch election went to the 
ballot box and deposited his vote. Nearly fifty years 
ago he hopefully enlisted under the banner of the 
" Prince of Peace " and with his wife united with the 
Congregational Church in Tamworth. His last end was 
peace. In his last moments he spoke calmly of death 
and his " desire to depart and be with Christ." After 
closing his own eyes he " fell asleep." His widow, Phi- 
lena, died March 26, 1858, aged 90 years.

Thomas Faxon^ was a man of small stature, very active, 
and if we may judge from the frequent transfers of real 
estate, a man of means for those daj^s. These transfers 
also show his residence at different times, as in Plym-

He returned soon after to Braintree, and the baptis- 
mal record of his children is found in the parish 
records of the North Precinct from 1755 to 1768 ; and 
sales of land are recorded in Suffolk deeds previous to 
1771. About this time (1771) he removed to Leicester, 
where his son Samuel was born, and soon after to Deer- 
field, as Springfield records show a deed dated June 
16, 1772, from Samuel Eardwell of Hatfield to Thomas 
Faxon of Deerfield.

Edward Faxon^, (Edward^, Josiah^, Eichard^,

and Hannah or Anna (Hlanchard) Faxon, m. June 16, 
1770, Zerviah Tliayer, dau. of Micah and Mehitable 
Thayer of Braintree (b. March 5, 1753). He was a 
farmer and when a young man removed to Eandolph 

*This is the positive statement of a nephew and niece of Priscilla 
(Faxon) Taylor, still living. The Kecords of "Wiliiamsburgh, Mass., 
give the following : 

"Priscilla Faxon dau, of Edmund Taylor and Dotia his Avife, was b. 
Oct. 23, 1)?!21. Laura dau. b. Nov. 26, 1824. Edmund Clark son b. Sept. 4, 
1826." 

This Edmund Taylor may have been a nephew of Edmund Taylor 
who m. Priscilla Faxon'^ or perhaps an adopted son. 

It also appears by deed of Lebbius Curtis ef al. of Wiliiamsburgh 
that Edmund Taylor once owned the blacksmith shop, with land men- 
tioned in said deed, 1809-1810.

March 17, 1837, ivt 84 We find on the records of the 
Middle Precinct Church the baptism of Elisha, 1774; 
Mehitable, 1774; Daniel, 1775; and it is probable that 
he was attending that church till 1777. The first four 
were probably born at the old homestead in Braintree.

located there Nov. 17, 1769. He continued to re- 
side there until the time of his death, 1776. An entry 
in the inventory and settlement of his estate of "money 
received from the treasurer for his services," indicates 
that he served in the Revolutionary War. (Plym. Proh.) 
The record of his marriage is found on the book of the 
First Church of Braintree. A comparison of dates and 
facts, and a statement in the will of Widow Dohle, (Suff. 
Prob. 75 : 60,) render it probable that Sarah Allen was 
the dau. of Benjamin and Deborah Allen of Braintree. 
She died before 1774, as the same will shows. Elisha^ 
was a farmer.

187. Susanna'^ b. ; d. young. She is mentioned in the 

will of Susanna Doble, whose maiden name was Allen, 

thus : — 

" Item I give to Susanna Paxon the Daughter of Sarah Paxon 
Dec<^ (a child) Twenty pounds to be paid by my Executor at the 
age of Twenty one Years with interest from my Decease to tlie 
time of payment to be paid Annually to one of my sisters that is 
disposed to take said Child, for the well bringing of it up But if said 
child decease before then to be equally divided between her Brotliers 
and Sisters, the said Twenty pounds." (Suff. Prob. 75 : 60.) Jesse 
Sturtevant of Halifax was appointed guardian, July 7, 1777. 

Of the above children the first seven were probably 
born in I'embroke, and the last two in Halifax. 



Elijah Faxon^, ( Eliashih^, Joalah^, UicharcP, 
Thomas^,) b. in Braintree, Nov. 24, 1731, son of Eliashib 
and Elizabeth (Crane) Faxon, m. Dec. 28, 1752, Beulah 



FIFTH GENERATION. 67 

Wild, dan of William and Euth (Hersey) Wild, b. May 
17, 1734. He was a farmer. After tlie removal of the 
father to Pembroke, he resided at Bridgewater He 
was at that place, April 14, 1759. (Plymouth Deeds 
48 : 112.) He was a private in the King's service, 
Capt. Lemuel Dunbar's compan}'-, from April 2 to Nov. 
1, 1759. (Mass. Archives.) He afterwards resided in 
Hanson, then the west part of Pembroke. After his 
death in 1763, his widow returned to Braintree, where 
she married, June 20, 1776, Micali Tha3"er. He prob- 
ably d. March 10, 1797, tet. 72 j'ears. Elijah' was also a 
"cordwainer." 

In the will of Elijah Faxon^ his children are named 
in the following order, viz. : 

" Barnabas, Asaph, Elijah and Betty.*' This agrees 
with the date of baptism given on the records of the 
First Church of Pembroke, afterwards the First Church 
of Hanson, Mass , for Barnabas, Asaph and Betsey. 
Elijah' was admitted to that church Oct. 20, 1750. 
His father, Eliashib^, was then a resident of Pembroke. 
The order of names given in the will is adopted. The 
arrangement given on page 516 of the Vinton Memorial 
is contrary to the evidence. Ruth'', the dau. of Thomas 
Faxon^, was not of this family. 

The following is a description of the land which 
Eliashib Faxon conveyed to his son Elijah Faxon, then 
said to be of Bridgewater. Consideration, £160. Ply- 
mouth Deeds, 48:112. 

" A certain piece Or parcel of land lying in Pembroke in New Eng- 
land containinir fifty acres be the same more or less, and is l)Ounded 
as followeth, viz. : — Beginning at tlie westerly corner of the land of 
Sabeth Cole's at the corner of my rye field, so running by tlie rye 
field till it comes to the line between Solomon Leavitt and nn-self, 
then turning and running southerly by said way till it conies to said 
Cole's line, then in the line between said Cole and myself till it 
comes to a fence, then by the fence till it comes to a stake and 
stones, then turning and running in said Cole's range till it comes 
to a spruce tree in the Dead Swamp, tlien turning and running in 
the range between Capt. Neliemiah Cusliing and myself till it comes 
to the land of Capt. Josiah Cushing, then in said liije till it conies 
to the corner between Josiah Cushing and myself, then turning and 
running in said range till it comes to the highway, then by said way 
till it comes to the land of Sabeth Cole, then by said Cole's line to 
the l)ounds first mentioned."

1748, and the baptism of liis children occurs regularly, 
and is, in cases where the exact date of birth is known,

Washington street, in North Braintree, (see map) and 
is called " Yeoman '^ by his father.

sought admission to the church of the jMiddle Precinct. 
It was in a troubled time of that much tried church.

the dates of birth are wanting, and hence it is possible 
that the names of children are not in the right order.

tion as driver on the line of stages between Albany and Buffalo; and lield 
the reins of fom--iu-kand every day until 1^17, except for the space of six 
months, which time was spent in school. 

After 1^17 Jason Parker, the old stage manager, brought lura to tTtica 
and placed hiui in charge of his business in that city. In l?-22 he pxir- 
chased an interest in the business and remained ct)nnected therewith 
until 1835, in wliich year the Arm of Faxtou, Cliilds & Co. was organized 
to cari-y on the real estate busiuess, an enterprise which proved highly 
remiuierative. They continued in this business for eighteen years, and 
then Mr. Faxton engaged with other parties in the packet-boat business. 
In connection with the late Alfred iMunson he organized the first Ameri- 
can line of steamers on the St. Lawrence river, and continued as man- 
aging director for a number of years. . 

Mr. Faxton deserves particvilar credit for the part he took in developing 
that great invention, the magnetic telegraph. In 1845 he negotiated with 
Prof. .Morse, the inventor, for an uiterest in the telegraphic busiuess and 
in company with others organized the New York, Albany and Buffalo tel- 
egraph company, of which he was president and superintendent for seven 
yeai-s, labored hard to make it a success and succeeded admirably. In 
addition to the above, Mr. Faxton was one of the originators of the Utica 
Steam Cotton Mills, the Utica Water Works Company, the Globe Woolen 
Mills (of which he is now president), the Second >;ational Bank, over 
Avhose affairs he has presided since its incorporation, and was interested 
in the orginization of the Utica and Schenectady railroad. He gave the 
first .'SlOO contributed to found the Utica Mechanics Association, and has 
been president of it for several terms. 

He was one of the originators of the Utica and Black Eiver Kailroad 
Company, and held the otfice of president for a long time. 

Mr. Faxton never took an active part in politics, but was often called to 
positions of honor and trust by his fellow citizens. In 1831 he was chosen 
trustee of the village of Utica, was electeil an alderman in 1836 and 
Mayor in 1861, and was a delegate to the Whig National Convention in 
1844. In 1^51 he was appointed by the New York State Agricultural Soci- 
ety, a delegate to the London Industrial Exposition, and sailed from 
New York on the loth of May of that year. Inuring his absence be made a 
short trip on the continent. In 1856 he was elected i^resideut of the State 
Agricultui-al Society. 

In addition to the railroads, telegi-aph, packet and steamboat lines, 
banks, manufactories and other enterprises that have added wealth and 
prosperity to Utica, Mr. Faxton has founded tlu-ee other institutions 
that will perpetuate his name and add honor and blessings to Ms mem- 
ory — the Old Ladies' Home on Faxton street, Faxton Hall, built by him 
for the edvxcation of the children of factory operatives, and Faxton 
Hospital, completed in .April, 1875. The following extract from a letter 
written by Hon. Thm'low Weed to the treasurer of Faxton Hospital niay 
aptly conclude the foregoing sketch, for many of the facts of which 
the Utica Herald should have credit: 



" New Yokk, June 26, 1875. 

" Dear Sir: — ^My daughter has just read in a copy of the Utica Herald, 
which was kindly sent to me, an interesting account of the completion of 
the Faxton Hospital, of which beneficent institvition I desire to become a 
Life IVl ember, 

" Few persons survive who have known Theodore S. Faxton longer and 
more intimately than myself. 

"In the winter of 1813 when Sackett's Harbor was threatened by the Brit- 
ish, he and I volunteered our services in its defense. In the spring of 
that year, Avliile I was a journeyman in the oftice of the Herkimer Amer- 
ican, Mr. Faxton, then familiarly known by the sobriquet of 'Doric,' 
was driving stage, Herkimer being one end of his route. There we 
became intimate. His intervals of leisure were passed with me in the 
printing oftice, where, in our convei"sation, he came to the conclusion that 
a few months schooling would add to his chances of success in the battle 
of life. In the year lsl4, when I was traveling on foot, with slender 
means, from Albany to Herkimer, I was fortunate enough to find my

friend 'Doric' at East Canada Creek, where lie paid for my dinner and 
invited me to ride free by his side on the box. to Herkimer. It affords 
me pleasure to balance this little account, sixty-one years after this 
friendly obligation was incurred, by a subscription to Mr. Faxton's Hos- 
pital. ****** 

" But I am straying too far away from the Hospital. Tlease find check 
enclosed for ^100.

In the life of Rev, Hosea Ballou, by Thomas Whitte- 
more, vol. 3, p. 225, they are spoken of as persons of 
great excellence of character. " They lived a rural life, 
quiet, unobtrusive, and to the world little known ; but 
it rarely happens that two persons of such purity and 
benevolence are united in the marriage relation. They 
were both Univeralists for many j^ears, in reason, in 
heart, in life. The old lady died 20th of Feb., 1836. 
Father Ballou expressed his opinion of her moral worth 
in the following affectionate language : "

among the virtuous, possess more of the amiable quali- 
ties of our nature, or manifest them more to perfec- 
tion, than did this venerable mother in our Christian 
Israel. She was the woman of whom the wise man says, 
* She openeth her mouth with wisdom ; and in her 
tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the 
ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idle- 
ness ; her children rise up and call her blessed ; her 
husband, also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters 
have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.' 

" This woman, more than half a century ago, enrolled 
her name with the few in the town of Williamsburgh 
who had moral courage adequate to the difficulties at- 
tendant on a public profession of the doctrine of God's 
impartial, efficient salvation. And there are but a few 
who have done so much as she in compliance with St. 
Peter's direction, in which he says, ^For so is the will 
of God, that with well-doing ye may put to silence the 
ignorance of foolish men.' Her faith in the Saviour of 
the world was her constant and abundant support, under 
the infirmities of a helpless old age, which she endured 
with a patience worthy of all praise and imitation. As 
she lived in the sunshine of gospel hope, so she died 
possessed of that peace which the world giveth not. 
Her memory is embalmed in many a friendly heart ; 
and her children and her children's children will long 
remember so worthy a mother." (Life of Rev. Hosea 
Ballon, by Thomas Whittemore, vol. 3, pp. 225-6 )

363a. 

There is a tra^r^ition that the name of Ballon is of 
French origin. Maturin Ballon^ arrived in America as 
early as 1646, probably earlier, and is found at Provi- 
dence at that date, where he was admitted an inhabitant 
or freeman. Perhaps he was induced to seek Bhode 
Island by the greater freedom allowed in religious 
matters. 

Maturin Ballon^ had five sons and one daughter, viz : 
John^, Peter'-, James'", NathanieP, Samuel'-', Hannah^. 
Of these, John^, Peter-, and James'-, had families. The

scended from John^, the first son. John^ married Han- 
nah Jaret, and liad tlie following children, namely-, 
John'^, Maturin'^, Peter*^, Sarah^, Hannali"^, and Abigail. 

Of the above, Peter'^, grandson of JNlaturin^, ^Yas born 
Aug. 1, 1689. He married Hebecca Estan. Their chil-

The descent of Hosea Ballou from Maturing the first 
ancestor in this countrj', may be briefly stated thus: 



SIXTH GENERATION. 103 

Matiirin^, John^ and Hannah (Jaret), Peter^ and Re- 
becca (Estan), Maturin* and Lj^dia (Harris), Hosea^ 

The genealogy given above is from Eev. Mr. Whitte- 
more's Biography of Hosea Ballon. Much more on the 
same subject will be found in the first volume of that 
work. Only that portion is given here which relates 
particularly^ to the subject of the sketch. It would be 
quite unnecessary to present in this book an extended 
account of the eminent preacher. For that reference 
may be made to the work of Mr. Whittemore, and to 
that of his son, M M. Ballou, and other well-known 
sources of information. His father, Maturin"*, was a 
Baptist clergj-man. His views of religion were Calvin- 
istic. Rev. Caleb Rich, known as Elder Rich, was giv- 
ing an impulse to the idea of universal salvation, in 
northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, 
and this influence reached Mr Ballou. From study of 
the Bible and careful consideration of the subject, he 
came to reject Calvinistic teachings, and to accept the 
doctrine of universal salvation, which he afterwards so 
ably advocated during his long ministr3\ 

The conscience of Mr Ballou always directed him 
according to the will of God, as he understood that will 
to be, and impelled him to consecrate his life to the dif- 
fusion of truth at that period most unpopular, and 
requiring of its adherents great perseverance and self- 
abnegation. He began to preach in 1791 in Vermont. 
His first attempts were decided failures, and it could 
hardlj^ be supposed then that he would afterwards be- 
come one of the most celebrated preachers in New Eng- 
land, an orator of great power and fluency of speech, of 
reasoning faculties of the highest order, possessing a 
wonderful influence over the large audiences which he 
was accustomed to address. 

The earlier years of his ministry were employed in 
various places in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. 
The believers in Universalism were few and widely 
scattered. He preached in Bellingham, Mass., in Fos- 
ter and Gloucester, R. I. At this time he occasionally 
taught in public and private schools to provide for his 
maintenance. He traveled much during the summer 
months, and spoke in many of the towns of Worcester 



104 HISTOKY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

countj^, Mass., in Royalston, Petersham, Hardwick, 
Brookfieldj Sturbridge, Oxford, Charlton. In 1796, he 
had made arrangements to preach at Hardwick, and 
being at that place, made the acquaintance of Euth 
Washburn, as appears by the records of that town, 
''Sept. 11, 1796, Mr. Hosea Ballon of Hardwick and 
Miss Euth Washburn of Williamsburgh." In this vicin- 
ity were many wiio warmly supported the teachings of the 
Universalists. Among them ^vere Silas, Stephen, and 
Aaron Johnson, three brothers, Earl Elagg, Joel Ams- 
den, Seth Johnson, John Town. 

In 1 803 Mr. Ballon removed to Barnard, Vt. It was 
a central point for several places in which Universalists 
lived. He soon after wrote " Xotes on the Parables," 
and a " Treatise on the Atonement." The latter work 
greatly increased his reputation for ability. In 1809 
he received an invitation to go to Portsmouth, N". H., 
which he accepted, leaving the united societies over 
which he had presided in Barnard, Vt. Here he re- 
mained till 1815, w^hen he accepted a call from the 
societ}" in Salem, Mass. 

In 1817 he w^as invited to take charge of the society 
in Boston which worshiped in the new church on 
School street. Mr. Ballon doubtless felt that this was 
a position in which he could accomplish most for the 
cause to which he was devoted, and he accordingly entered 
that field of duty in which he became so well-known. 

From this date till within a fortnight of his decease, 
a period of thirty-five years, he was the pastor of the 
School Street Society. His powerful influence was felt 
throughout all the countrj^ He visitedvarious parts of 
the Union and was a fearless advocate of Unitarian 
views and most successful in advancing the growth of 
liberal ideas. As early as 1795 he accepted Unitaiian- 
ism, and in this respect was in advance of any other 
prominent clergyman of his denomination. He seems 
to have been instrumental in effecting an entire change 
of Universalists from Trinitarian to Unitarian belief. 

His literary labors were extensive. He never wrote 
his sermons, but he established the literature of his de- 
nomination. Besides the works mentioned, he began 
in 1819 the publication of the Universalist Magazine, 



SIXTH GENERATION. 105 

which has continued ever since, though in a modified 
form. In 1831, he commenced with Kev. Hosea Ballou, 
2nd, the " Universalist Expositor." He published a vol- 
ume of "Lecture sermons," and "An Examination of 
the Doctrine of Euture Eetribution." His published 
works w^ould make one hundred 12mo. volumes. He 
preached more than ten thousand sermons, and united 
more persons in marriage than any other minister in the 
country.

pan}^ of Gol Theophilus Gotton's regiment, and was out 
after the Lexington alarm twenty-six days. (Mass. 
Rev. Rolls, 11: 249) It is supposed that this instance 
is of Elisha^, but it might have been of the father 
Elisha^, who also served for a time. It is certain 
that Elisha^ enlisted in Gaptain Wadsworth's company, 
and was returned to the council May 7, 1777 for three 
years, (Mass. Rolls, 27 : 150,) for his age, 23 years is 
there stated. He had the rank of sergeant. He re- 
sided at Halifax, Mass., but his children have long since 
removed from that place, and no one of the name now 
remains there.

1756, dau. of Elisha^ and Sarah (Allen) Faxon, m. 
Sept. 15, 1777, Jonathan Curtis, b. April 30, 1744, son 
of David and Hannah Curtis of Halifax, Mass. He was 
a blacksmith. They resided at Halifax and Northamp- 
ton, Mass , and were intimate with the families of 
Washburn and Faxon of Williamsburgh, Mass. He died 
at Northampton, Mass., April 4, 1797. In Plymouth 
Deeds 63 : 34 " Jonathan Curtis and ' Molly ' his wife, 
deeded to Elisha Faxon^ a certain lot of land with 
dwelling-house, barn, blacksmith-shop, and corn-house 
thereon standing; said lot contains nine acres and three- 
quarters, and is bounded as follows : — Beginning on the 
south side of the highway and is a corner bound of the 
land lately Thomas Russell's, now the property of 
Samuel and Allen Faxon ; thence running in said 
Faxon's range south 15 degrees east b% rods and a half 
to a stake ; thence south 73 degrees w^est 30 rods to a 
stake ; then north 14 degrees and a half west 53 rods 
and a half to the highway ; thence easterly b}^ the south

the countrj'^ in the revolutionarj" war at an early date. 
He was enlisted by Captain Bradford for three jears 
May 7, 1777, at the same time with his brother, Elisha^, 
and his age is stated on the roll at that time as 19 
years. (JNIass. Eev. Kolls, 27 : 150.) The date of en- 
listment is afterwards given on a pay-roll of Capt. 
Joseph Wadsworth's company of Colonel Bradford's 
regiment, as March 2, 1777, both for him and Flisha*^, 
and they are paid for a term of service from that date of 
sixty-eight days, £1 16s 3d. (Mass. Eev. Eolls, 19 : 93.)

,years. He was at one time of the Continental line, and 
his widow continued to draw a pension until her death. 
As early as 1781 he and his brother Allen made a pur- 
chase of land in Bridgewater, and at that date are said 
to be of that place. (Plymouth Deeds, 60 : 223-4.) 
His children were all born in East Bridgewater. About 
1805 he sold his property in the latter place and removed 
to Foxborough, Mass. He afterwards lived at Smith- 
field, E,. I., and at North Providence. He died at the

daughter, Mrs. Fanny Manchester, where she had re- 
sided man}^ years, Oct. 12, 1857. He was a "yeoman," 
and he owned the place in East Bridgewater, afterwards 
known as that of William Bird. The homestead farm of 
Samuel Faxon in East Bridgewater is described in the

Ellis Graj^ Loring, was a distinguished lawyer of 
Boston. He died on Sunday evening at his country resi- 
dence in Beverly, Mass. His illness was quite sudden 
and unexpected. He was highly respected for his 
virtues in private life, and for his active benevolence. 
He was connected with the anti-slavery societj', and was 
a well-known philanthropist. He was endeared to the 
citizens of Boston by his life of usefulness and honor. 
He received a Franklin medal at the Latin School in 1819, 
and graluated at Harvard Universit}'- in 1823. Much 
could be written on the noble life and character of Ellis 
Gray Loring ; but to give some view of the regard in 
which he was held, it ma}'- be well to present an article 
from the Christian Register, of Boston, May 29, 1859. 

"We grieve that so many hearts must be saddened 
this festive week by the death of this excellent man. 
He was the friend of all who needed sympath}^ or aid. 
The poor and the oppressed never found his face averted 
or his door closed to them. Knowing him and lov- 
ing him as we have for forty j^ears, we should be con- 
sidered extravagant did we give free expression to our 
impressions of his rare excellencies of character. This 
we say deliberately^, for it has long been our settled con- 
viction that never, through a not short life, have we met 
the man who seems to us nearer our ideal of a perfect 
Christian gentleman. 



196 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

'^ With sufficient firmness, energy and decision of char- 
acter, he was j-et one of the gentlest of liunian beings, 
and the most genial and winning in his sympathies. 
No one was ever so idolized in his home and among a 
large circle of devoted friends; and they whom he served 
in the profession of the law, or in the discharge of many 
monetary trusts, felt about as sure of his fidelity, 
promptness, and obligingness, as of one of the laws of 
nature. He declined public office, and his political 
sympathies were ever too much overruled by moral con- 
siderations to allow of his being a popular partisan ; and 
yet by tiie power of character and unvarying suavity of 
manner, he won troops of friends and universal respect." 

The funeral services took place on the 26th of May, 
1858, at the Indiana Place Chapel. A large number of 
friends, personal and political, were present. The serv- 
ices were conducted by Rev. James Freeman Cla-he, D. D. 
He pronounced a brief and touchingly beautiful eulogy 
on the deceased. The Hon. Josiah Quincy, jun., made 
some remarks, in which he stated that he had been inti- 
mately acquainted with Mr. Loring for thirty-six years, 
and could truly and sincerely say that he never did, 
said, or thought anything which he could regret. The 
remains were interred in the cemetery at the foot of the 
Common.

202 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

the Military Academy at West Point, and after a brief 
course at that institution graduated in 1808 with the 
rank of second lieuenant of engineers. His previous 
instruction at Dartmouth (JoUege rendered it unneces- 
sary for liim to continue his studies at West Point for a 
longer period. 

He was appointed by the Government to assist in the 
construction of the fortifications in Boston Harbor. In 
the war of 1812, he served in the nortliern army on the 
Canadian frontier and afterwards at iSTorfolk, Va., and 
won the brevet of major. In 1815 he was sent by the 
government with Colonel McRae to examine the princi- 
pal military fortifications of Europe. For this purpose 
he spent some time in France. Belgium, and the other 
countries of the continent. Upon his return in 1817, 
he was appointed by President Monroe superintendent 
of the military acaden^y at West Point. He continued 
in this position until 1833. This period of service has 
proved most remarkable in its effects on the discipline 
and instruction of that institution, and hence has had a 
wide influence on the educational interests of the nation ; 
and has given to our military sj'stem an enduring 
character. 

Prior to the jeav 1818, the military academy was in 
its infancy and was characterized by little system or 
regularity. Cadets had been admitted without examina- 
tion, and without much re'gard to the legal requirements 
of age and qualifications. They were not regarded as 
subject to martial law, no class rank had been estab- 
lished, no register of the classes was published, and the 
right of each to elect the corps to which he should be 
assigned, was partially conceded. The institution had 
been proposed in the early 3'ears of the Kevolution, had 
passed through the trying questions of constitutional 
propriety, had survived all the objections brought against 
it, had secured the warm support of the most distin- 
guished men of the nation ; and it was now prepared to 
assume that character which has established its reputa- 
tion for strict and salutary discipline, for a government 
wise and efficient in promoting sound morals and ster- 
ling integrity, and for literary and scientific excellence. 

Brevet Major Thayer assumed command on July 28, 



SEVENTH GENERATIOX. 203 

1817. He had studied, as every leading educator should, 
the institutions of other countries, and possessed more 
enlarged views than were generally entertained by those 
of his times. He had the ability to organize his system, 
the energy and determination to carry it into effect, and 
he continued for nearly sixteen years to develop and per- 
fect his designs. 

The students were immediately organized into a 
battalion with a colonel, and adjutant and sergeant- 
major of Cadets ; and a Commandant of Cadets was 
appointed to superintend the instruction in ''Tactics." 
The division of classes into sections ; the system of daily 
marks, of weeklj^ reports, of class rank; the publication 
of an Annual Register, the establishment of a Hoard of 
Visitors, the check-book; the regulations for the acad- 
emy, which exist at present in nearly the same form, 
were the results of the efforts of Major Tha^'er. Through 
his influence instruction in the higher mathematics, de- 
scriptive geometry, permanent fortifications, and topo- 
graphical curves was introduced. 

In 1818 the Secretar}^ of War introduced the custom 
of publishing in the Army Eegister the names of cadets 
distinguished for attainments and meritorious conduct. 
This means of arousing a proper spirit of emulation and 
of elevating the disci jjline of the academy is still con- 
tinued. In the same year the question of military con- 
trol was settled b}^ a decision which declared the cadets 
a part of the military establishment of the United States, 
and subject to trial by court martial. Two general ex- 
aminations for the year, strict requirements for admis- 
sion and the annual encampment in July and August 
were instituted. 

These measures resulted in a high degree of prosper- 
ity. Appointments were eagerly sought, and the reports 
of the Boards of Visitors show a just appreciation of 
Major Thayer's efforts. 

In 1833 INIajor Thayer was made brevet colonel and 
on July 1st of that 3'ear was relieved at his own request. 

He was immediately appointed to construct the de- 
fenses in Boston Harbor. He became entitled to cer- 
tain commissions on purchases made for the United 
States in the performance of this duty. With a spirit 



204 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

of inflexible integrity, believing that he was clulj'- paid 
by the usual salary and allowances of the government, 
he firnil^^ refused to accept the mone}", which amounted 
to a large sum ; nor did he yield until it had been 
deposited in a bank to his credit, and he had been 
assured that it would become the property of his heirs. 
His determination not to receive from it any personal 
advantage was realized by subsequent donations which 
have secured to the country benefits to be estimated by 
no ordinary method of computation, for they will only 
cease with the existence of the nation. 

In 1838 he was made lieutenant colonel. He was 
chief of the corps of engineers from 1857 to 1850. He 
was made colonel of engineers March 3,1863; brevet 
brigadier general United States Army, IMa}' 31, 1863; 
retired from active service June 1, 1863, having been 
borne on the Army Eegister more than forty-five years. 

General Thayer received numerous marks of honor 
from many institutions of the country; the degree of 
A.M. from Dartmouth College, 1810; from Harvard 
University, 1825; of LL. D., from St. John's College, 
Md., 1830; from Kenyon College, Ohio, 1846; from 
Dartmouth College, 1846 ; from Harvard University, 
1857. He was elected member of the American Acad- 
emy of Arts and Sciences, 1834 ; and of the American 
Philosophical Societ3', Philadelphia, 1838. 

General Thayer returned to his native town and re- 
sided there during the latter part of his life. His inter- 
est in the cause of education has been proved by the 
institutions of learning which he has founded and en- 
dowed. He gave to the Thayer School of Engineering 
of Dartmouth College, §80,000. He founded the Brain- 
tree Public Library and gave to it during his life, 
S32,500. He left by will the laro;erpart of his propert}'- 
to establish Thayer Academy. The fund was committed 
to the charge of trustees who have efficiently realized 
the donor's design. Tlie school M-as opened in 1877. 
The academj^ witli its statel^^ tower and beautifid front, 
a noble structure with ample accommodations and at- 
tractive grounds is situated in South Braintree, a little 
north of the town house. The building cost §^80,000. 
The invested fund is S225,000. The design of the 



SEVENTH GEXERATIOX. 205 

institution is to furnish the means for advanced educa- 
tion and preparation for college to the people of Brain- 
tree, Quincy, liandolph and Holbrook, Avhicli four places 
constituted the ancient town of Braintree. For schol- 
ars of these towns, so long as the fund amounts to 
$200,000 and the income to :^12,000, there will be no 
charge for tuition. The most capable instructors are 
emplo^'ed, and the academy has already taken a high 
rank among the institutions of the state. 

Tlie Public Library is a handsome fire-proof building 
a little south of the academy on the same street. The 
old Thayer mansion has been removed from the academy 
grounds to the opposite side of the street, and is the 
residence of the principal of the school. The place of 
his birth has thus become a classic memorial to an hon- 
orable and useful life. It serves to recall the incident 
which has been related of his refusal to accept certain 
money to which the government deemed him entitled, 
and we are impelled to believe that a clearly defined 
sense of honor, an unsullied purity of motive are em- 
bodied in the bequest which he has made to posterity 
and will live as a moral force forever. That monej^ 
which he would not accept, and which therefore he could 
not deem the rightful inheritance of his heirs has be- 
come again the property of the people, and will be pre- 
served hereafter to promote the intellectual and moral 
progress of the rich and poor alike. Everj'' scholar and 
every cifizen who shares in the benefits of his endow- 
ments ought to be inspired by this one incident of the 
founder's life. To us it is more than all else he has 
done. It reveals the pure motives of a life which has 
resulted in such large and enduring benefits to mankind. 

The influence of General Thayer as an educator has 
been widely felt. The West Point system with its 
fundamental principle of personal instruction, thorough 
examination, careful discipline of the intellectual facul- 
ties and physical culture has been extended by the 
graduates of the academy throughout the country. 
Tillinghast gave the impress of it to the Normal School 
at Bridgewater, and from that institution it has reached 
nearly every town in Massachusetts. In all the learned 
professions, in the domain of science, in the positions of 



206 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

life requiring the exercise of high abilities, the gradu- 
ates of West Point are found. They have won victory 
and glory on the field of battle, and have saved the na- 
tion in the hour of trial. 

General Thayer was a strictly professional soldier. In 
his military associations, he had during his whole life 
been accustomed to exercise command, to receive implicit 
obedience from his subordinates, and profound respect 
from all. In the latter years of his life in Braintree, it 
is possible that some may have had an erroneous concep- 
tion of his character. He acquired in his long j^ears of 
service that degree of reserve, of dignit}^ of soldierly 
precision, which are peculiar to the military profession. 
He had never married, and hence the qualities which 
result from endearing domestic ties were not called into 
daily exercise by the immediate associations of the 
familj^ To those who knew him in the intimate rela- 
tions of his profession, or in the closer walks of personal 
friendship, he was an accomplished soldier, a pure and 
upright gentleman, a devoted educator, and a liberal 
public benefactor. 

He died in Braintree, September 7, 1872. His re- 
mains rest in the cemetery at West Point.

Mr. Faxon was for many years a successful merchant 
of Boston, and acquired an ample fortune. He was for 
nine years a director of the Quincy Mutual Fire Insur- 
ance Company. His transactions in real estate, of which 
he is a large owner, have been extensive. He resides in 
Quincy, the place of his birth. He has devoted a large 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 271 

portion of his annual income to the promotion of the 
cause of temperance. From the first formation of the 
party he has been a determined and consistent republi- 
can, and through that organization has constantly endeav- 
ored to accomplish the reforms so imperatively demanded 
by the interests of society. He holds the republican party 
to be the most reliable medium for reform, and has, 
therefore, never been connected with the third party 
movements for that purpose. He has, however, always 
refused to support those nominations for office which 
were hostile to the interests of temperance. 

Mr. Faxon is well known throughout New England 
for his devotion to the cause of temperance ; but in 
Quincy, his own home, his generous and earnest efforts 
are best known. He was chosen to represent Quincy in 
the Legislature, by a decided majority, in 1864. 

In 1871, he was elected a second time against John 
Quiocy Adams, the candidate of the opposition. The 
popularity, social position, and wealth of his opponent, 
and the active hostility to the temperance reform in 
Quincy could not defeat the earnest efforts of the friends 
of temperance under the leadership of Mr. Faxon ; and 
this last instance was a signal triumph of which Quincy 
may well be proud. On this occasion many of the dem- 
ocratic party supported Mr. Faxon by their votes. 

At no time has Mr. Faxon abated his energetic efforts. 
He is as strongly at work to-day as ever. In the great 
progress of the Reform Clubs he has been widely known. 
His pecuniary assistance has sustained these organiza- 
tions in various parts of Massachusetts. Especially in 
Quincy has he done a noble work. Faxon Hall, a per- 
manent memorial to his name, was erected in 1876, for 
the Reform Club of Quincy. This structure with its 
furniture cost $11,000 ; and of this sum Mr. Faxon con- 
tributed three-fourths. Through the pulpit, the Sun- 
day-schools, the press, the conventions, the polls, he has 
assailed the traffic in intoxicating liquors with an un- 
compromising spirit. He has treated with defiant scorn 
that political policy which has so often betraj^ed the 
friends of prohibitory legislation. Consequently he has 
encountered much opposition, personal abuse, and mis- 
representation of motives ; but his courage, consistency 



272 HISTORY OF THE FAXON FAMILY. 

and perseverance are unyielding. His entire freedom 
from sectarian bigotry, and his Christian integrity pLice 
the purity of his motives beyond question, and render 
ineffectual the attacks of those who find his sincerity 
unsuited to their political purposes. The employment of 
his wealth in a noble cause for the benefit of society 
will not only deserve and receive the appreciation of 
those who know him ; but the influence of such an ex- 
ample will be powerful in good results.

CORRECTIONS. 
The following errors have been found during the passing of the 
work through the press. Some of these occurred in transcribing 
from records and returns ; some, from the fact that parties hare 
given two statements of dates inconsistent with each other ; some, 
from the illegibility of returns. Errors in names, dates of birth, 
and marriage of children, as given in the first instances, are gen- 
erally corrected in the subsequent pages of the families of such 
children. 

The absolute correctness of the work is desirable, and this can 
be attained, if each person who discovers an error, will communi- 
cate the same with the correction to G. L. Faxon, Spencer, Mass. 
The corrections will be printed and distributed for insertion at the 
end of the book.
