INTKODUCTION. 



As promised in the "Prospectus for the Sanbornton Town His- 
tory," under date of March, 1880, the "genealogical records of more 
than two hundred [223] family names of the original town" are 
given in this volume, besides briefer notices of nine others, in 
Appendix I. The object of the work was then stated to be "to 
communicate to present and future generations some knowledge of 
the noble fathers of old Sanbornton ; to transmit some just idea 
of those later upon the stage to those who shall come after us, and to 
show what the influence of Sanbornton has been, through her emi- 
grating sons and daughters, in the varied walks of life, upon other 
communities of the land and the world." 

When the author first came to the town in 1865, he found numerous 
families bearing the same name in the church and parish over which 
he was pastor. Prompted by curiosity, and as a means of aiding him 
in funeral services and other pastoral duties, he began to inquire into 
the connection of these families. Before he was aware, he had col- 
lected records and scraps of information, which increased in interest 
as he proceeded, and soon convinced him that if the same work could 
be continued and amplified, so as to embrace all the families of the 
town without partiality, it might prove a task pleasant in itself, grati- 
fying alike to present residents and absent descendants, and promotive 
of God's glory. 

He early discovered, from the details of family and individual 
experience, that the genealogies of the town were well worth pre- 
serving, and that its history should be written ; to which he was further 
encouraged by the earnest and repeated recommendations of the late 
Dr. N. Bouton, of Concord (" make it rich in genealogical material ! "), 
as also by se\erai of the venerable men of the town, since passed 
away. He found less than half the old families represented on the 
town books, and most of these but partially ; which, however, he 
determined to take as a basis, leaving nothing oat which those public 
records contained. Then, by consulting the registers in many a well- 
worn family Bible, by interviews with aged people, and by extensive 
correspondence with the scattered descendants of these families, a 
mass of material was soon collected which might have seemed appall- 
ing but for the enthusiasm it awakened. This work did not hinder 



Vlll INTRODUCTION. 

but rather aided the pastor's labors in his own parish, while it opened 
up many avenues of usefulness abroad. It was afterwards resolved 
to incorporate into these genealogical records what could be gathered 
and condensed from such obituary notices as came to hand, as also 
from all the monumental incriptions in the older cemeteries of the 
town, and all the earlier records of marriages and deaths, both public 
and private, some of the most valuable of which came to light quite 
providentially. 

The author's aim has been to embrace ivhat could be obtained both of 
the ancestry and posterity of all the older and many of the later families, 
though of course he found it necessary to exclude many whose resi- 
dence in town was only temporar}', or who, within the last thirty 
years, have become residents, especially of the new towns of Franklin 
and Tilton ; excluding also his own family, so that the usual charge 
against genealogists, of egotism in parading their own personal or 
family histories, might not be brought against himself. He wished to 
produce a record of such impartiality that none of the original and 
older families nor their descendants could complain of being neglected, 
and of such fulness that other local historians and genealogists might 
find in this work all they could expect to obtain by corresponding with 
the town clerk or visiting the town in person ; viz., whatever informa- 
tion the public records, the cemeteries, and the oldest inhabitants 
might afford them. 

The records, as now presented, are, from the nature of the case, 
imperfect. The author has labored under the conscious disadvantage 
of not being a native of Sanbornton ; besides, the work of a genealo- 
gist is never finished. It is like the photographer's endeavor to take a 
picture of a moving procession : before his instruments can be adjusted, 
or his impression, caught at a given instant, can be prepared for 
exhibition, the procession ma}- be presenting altogether a different 
aspect. The humiliating conclusion is also forced upon the writer of 
a book like this, that there must be errors, omissions, and redundan- 
cies upon almost every page : for of some families no written records 
could be obtained ; the uncertain memories of the aged had to be 
trusted for names and dates ; the random guesses of some individuals 
would be given hy word of mouth or letter, instead of facts ; the 
stolid indifference of others must needs be confronted. The author 
can, however, honestly say, there is not an imperfect record of a San- 
bornton family in the whole work (excepting a few in the Appendix) 
which he has not attempted, and in many cases repeatedly, by visita- 
tions, or correspondence, to make more full than it is. 

In regard to the epitaphs^ he is aware that many of them are uncouth 
and unpoetic, while some may seem to detract seriously from the lit- 



INTRODUCTION. IX 

erary merits of the volume. But having determined to take any, all 
must in justice be included. The quaintness or roughness of an 
epitaph is olten its chief recommendation. The sentiment is usually 
devout. The propriety of giving these epitaphs in connection with 
the deaths of individuals whose records are transmitted, appears from 
the fact that some hearts were once moved to choose such expressions, 
with reference to the same individuals, as their buried friends. Their 
publication is no breach of courtesy, since they were all originally 
designed for the public. They belong peculiarly to, are in fact a part 
of, ihe literary history of the town ; while many of them, fast crum- 
bling to decay, will in this volume be preserved for the precise purpose 
for which at first designed, — the perusal of future generations. 

It was proposed in the Prospectus that the ''Sketches" should be 
merely " occasional or incidental," — thrown in " to relieve the 
monotony of genealogical detail," — and applied " principally to those 
public or professional men who were several years resident in town, 
and to other sons of Sanbornton either at home or abroad, of whom 
(1) previously printed sketches or obituaries have been found, whose 
friends (2) have voluntarily furnished such notices, and who (3) have 
been personally known to the author during his fifteen years of resi- 
dence here as pastor of the Congregational Church." Beyond these 
limitations it was not possible to go, while it is freely admitted that 
man}', to whose names only a brief record is appended, may have been 
equally worth}' of a fuller notice. But the work is strictly genealogical 
rather than biographical. Many excellent citizens and sons of the 
town had passed away during its first century, with whom no personal 
acquaintance was possible ; of many of these, no printed memorials 
have been found ; and of others still, their surviving friends have 
shown no desire that particular mention should be made. Where 
much was not given, much cannot reasonably be required. 

All efforts have been made which were possible, under the circum- 
stances, to ascertain pedigrees and ancestral connections with fulness 
and accuracy. To this end the published " Genealogies " extant have 
been studiously consulted ; but these are comparatively few in number. 
The records of other towns have also been, to some extent, inspected, 
though these, in many places, are defective. Where other means of 
information failed, recourse could only be had to the tradition of aged 
people belonging to different families, and in most cases no certain 
light has been obtained back of the Sanbornton immigrant ancestor, 
or the first of a given name who settled in the town. The author has. 
however, scrupulously distinguished between fact and probability in 
the statements made, at the headings of the various families. 

More time might have made the records, especially of some families 



X INTRODUCTION. 

in the Appendix, more full and satisfactory. The " twent}' years" 
assigned by Dr. Bouton for this work are not yet completed. But 
space would not have allowed the swelling of this volume much 
bej'ond its present size ; and therefore, such as it is, with a full con- 
sciousness of its imperfections, many of which arise, as before hinted, 
from the very nature of the enterprise, the obscurities of handwriting, 
and the various and unsatisfactory ways in which the material has been 
brought to the author's hands, he deems it best, without further delay 
or attempts at improvement, to give it to that public which has 
patiently awaited its appearance. 

The numerous " sources of information," and the many individuals 
to whom the author feels indebted, are usually noticed under their 
respective records, as referred to from Index II. An exception is 
found in the case of Mr. Stephen G. Taylor, of Brooklyn, N. Y., 
whose manuscript records of the Taylor Family — the result of several 
months of patient labor — were of essential value. Separate mention 
should also be made of the venerable Perkins Brothers, Capt. Chase, 
who gave the earliest encouragement for this histor}*, and his older 
brother, Capt. John B., whose valuable aid was providentially con- 
tinued nearly to the completion of the manuscript. The aged Mr. 
Peter Burley, Mr. Jeremiah Weeks, so lately departed, and several 
others, are also entitled to grateful remembrance ; while to the youth- 
ful James H. W. Abbott, the author stands indebted for the genea- 
logical papers which he left upon a few of the Sanbornton families ; 
and to his father, the lamented James B. Abbott, M. D., for his 
" Sketches of the Sanbornton Physicians," most of which are incor- 
porated in the records of the present volume, under their several 
names. 



EXPLANATIONS. 



I. The genealogical arrangement employed in this volume is simple 
and easily explained, as follows : Beads of families are given in the 
larger type ; children, or descendants, immediately after, in the smaller 
tvpe. Through each family name, in all its branches, consecutive 
numbers are found on the left margin of the printed page. These 
numbers, preceding the heads of families, are followed (except the 
first), after the name, by smaller bracketed numbers, each referring 
back to that consecutive number at which the same individual appears 
as a child. Those children, or names in smaller type, who are after- 
wards to appear as heads of families, are followed, after each name, 
by larger bracketed numbers, referring forward to the places where 
they thus appear. It was first contemplated that all parents, especially 
in the male lines, should thus reappear, even to the latest generations. 
A few of the records which were earliest prepared, like the Hunkins 
and Odell families, were arranged chiefly upon this principle ; but it 
was found that the same carried out would swell the volume to an 
inordinate size, so that the arrangement was modified, as now appear- 
ing in the Sanborn, Morrison, and most of the smaller families, and 
generally in the tracing of female lines ; viz., that not the last generation 
but one of a given family should be the last to be thus transferred, 
but the second or third before the last. By this arrangement not only 
children are entered under their proper consecutive numbers, but 
grandchildren and great-grandchildren under the same consecutives, 
the grandchildren appearing after the Arabic numerals 1, 2, o, etc., 
the great-grandchildren after the Roman numerals I., II., III., etc. ; 
and in a few cases, even great-great-grandchildren after Arabics in 
parenthesis, — (1), (2), (3), etc. 

II. Pedigrees are indicated, after the several heads of families, by 
a list of names in parenthesis, with small exponent figures, as on 
p. 1, the first over the name in question, thus, " Ezra 5 ," showing the 
generation to which the individual belongs ; the next being the father, 
" Samuel 4 ," with exponent one less ; then the grandfather, with expo- 
nent one less, etc., back to the first known ancestor, whose name 
appears with the exponent 1 , thus, "George 1 ." It must be noted, 
however, that this first exponent does not indicate the "original 
ancestor" of the individual, nor even, in most cases, the earliest in 



XI 1 EXPLANATIONS. 

this country (as with the Abbotts), but simply the parliest as known 
to the collector of these records, which often go no further back than 
the first ancestor in this town, though in a few cases, as with the 
Gilmans, to previous centuries in the old country. 

III. A few records coming in late, after the families had been 
arranged for the press, were necessarily entered, like the female lines, 
with two or more generations under the same consecutive number, 
instead of being transferred, like corresponding branches of the same 
family. Instance, p. 438 [47]. In other cases, for the same reason, 
one or two consecutive numbers must needs be entered fractional! //, 
as on p. 241, because the numbering had been completed, and could 
not well be changed, after the new material was received. 

IV. The parenthesis ( — ) has other peculiar uses in this work 
besides those already indicated ; e. g., (1.) After the Christian name 
of a female, her maiden surname is frequently given in parenthesis 
before her married surname, as on p 2, line 8. (2.) In giving the 
children of a female line, the famihy surname thus appears after the 
Christian name of the first child, as on p. 1 [8, 1]. (3.) Jf two 
different dates were found, as of births or town conflicting with 
private records, or if a similar uncertainty existed as to names, etc., 
the more probable is given first, and the other directly after, in paren- 
thesis. (4.) In numerous instances, after the date of a marriage, 
the surname of the officiating clergyman is given in parenthesis, and 
the honored names of " Woodman," " Crockett," and k * Bodwell " thus 
appear most frequently. All others are the ordinary uses of the 
parenthesis, which, from the sense, will be readily understood. 

V. Quotation-marks after a death always indicate the epitaph taken 
from the gravestone of the individual buried in Sanbornton, unless 
otherwise stated. 

VI. Figures after " ae." indicate the years of age ; or, connected 
with clashes, thus, " 1 — 1 — 17" (p. 3 [2U]), the years, months, and 
days, unless otherwise specified. 

VII. It is not claimed that all who served as soldiers in the several 
wars are noted in these records ; but as many as were heard of in that 
capacity are thus noticed, to whom reference is made in Index II. 

VIII. Ordinarily, when no town is mentioned as the place of birth, 
Sanbornton is to be understood, unless there is previous specification 
to the contrary, or the head of the given family is just before repre- 
sented as having elsewhere settled. 

IX. In a few instances, families, chiefty belonging to other towns, 
like the Ladd Family, were yet so intimately connected with Sanborn- 
ton by marriages that their records are given with nearly the same 
degree of fulness as the others. 



EXPLANATIONS. xiii 

X. When all of a given family name are shown in the records to 
have been descended from one and the same ancestor, the singular, 
"Family," is, with a few exceptions, employed in the headings (as 
also in the Index and Table of Contents) ; when such common ances- 
try is not shown, the plural, ' ; Families," is employed ; and, in either 
case, the term "Branch" or "Branches" is used to designate the 
separate family groups. 

XI. In the disputed orthography of certain surnames, a compro- 
mise is usually made. Preference ma}' sometimes be given to the 
older forms of spelling in the running or page titles and the Index, 
but not in the way of authority or dictation. 

XII. Miscellaneous explanations: A mark of interrogation (?) 
after a name or date implies uncertainty. Consecutive numbers are 
always referred to in brackets, except in the Indexes. The usual 
abbreviations for titles are employed, as also for the names of States 
and provinces, which usually appear but once after each famiby name 
when the place of residence is first given. Names of towns, if with- 
out special designation, are supposed to be in New Hampshire. Other 
abbreviations are those commonly used in books of this kind, as " b." 
for " born " ; " m." for " married" ; " unm." for " unmarried" ; " d." 
for "died"; " ae." for "aged"; " dau." for "daughter"; "res." 
for " resides " or " residence " ; " res'd. " for " resided " ; " rem." for 
"removed" ; and " t. r." for " town record (s)."

36. James Buswell 6 Abbott (Elias 5 . Reuben 4 , James 3 , William 2 , 
George 1 ) was b. June 21, 1799, in Concord, being the son of Dea. 
Elias, b. Oct. 21, 1757, a Revolutionaiy soldier, and Elizabeth Bus- 
well, of Bow, b. Sept. -1, 1761. (See I.) He studied medicine with 
Dr. Enos Hoyt, of Northfield ; attended medical lectures at Hanover 
in 1824 and '25 ; and graduated at that institution in 1826. In July, 
same 3'ear, he entered into partnership, in the practice of medicine, 
with Dr. Harper, of Canterbury, and continued this connection one 
3'ear. In Aug., 1827, he established himself at Loudon Mills, where 
he remained upwards often years. Nov. 15, 1827, he was m., 1st, to 
Nancy B. Rogers, of Nortlifield, who was b. Sept. 6, 1800, and with 
whom he lived until Sept 11, 1837, when she was removed by death, 
ae. 37. He was elected Fellow of the N. H. Medical Society in 1832. 
In April, 1838, removed to Bosca wen, and in October, same year, was 
m., 2d, to Elizabeth A. Rogers, b. Oct. 15, 1816, whose loss by death 
he was called to mourn, Nov. 27, 1842, ae. 26 — 1. He m., 3d, Sarah 
Gerrish, March 22, 1843, the dan. of Capt. Joseph Gerrish, of 
Canterbury, b. March 2, 1816, and Dec. 19 of that year (1843) 
removed to Sanbornton. He here remained, in the successful dis- 
charge of his professional duties, residing at the Square, as Dr. 
Hill's successor, for more than twenty-six years. He was character- 
ized, both as a man and as "the beloved physician," first, by that 
tenderness of heart which rendered him peculiarly sympathetic, and 
enabled him to feel for those in distress ; second, by that soundness 
and correctness of judgment which made him exceed ingly useful as 
an adviser in any situation ; and thirdly, by a firmness of will, which 
resulted in remarkable decision of character, and rendered him con- 
stant and reliable as a friend and benefactor. He was town clerk, 
1850 and '51 ; school committee, 1844 and '49 ; was for twenty-two 
years a deacon and pillar of the Congregational Church ; and for six-

teen years the "valued and efficient superintendent of the Sabbath 
school." As a physician, he studied well the diagnoses of his patients ; 
decided deliberately, and seldom decided wrong. He represented the 
N. H. Medical Society at the National Convention (American Med- 
ical Association) in Baltimore, May, 1848, and left several valuable 
papers, published and unpublished ; among the latter, a series of bio- 
graphical sketches of the several physicians of Sanbornton. He was 
a Christian of a deep and genuine religious experience ; excelled in 
the gifts of prayer and exhortation ; but was ever clothed with humil- 
ity, as also With benignity and gentlemanly kindness of speech and 
manner. He d., after seven weeks' distressing illness, of heart dis- 
ease, July 6, 1870, ae. 71, " with the harness on, his armor all fitting- 
well, having never lost his ground, and with all the honors of his best 
manhood" (Prof. Albert Smith). " His rest shall be glorious." His 
funeral sermon, by the author, was published. Children :

wife (m. April 12, 1837), still occupants of "the paternal estate" 
" in the bend of the Merrimack River at Sewall's Falls," Concord, where 
his grandfather Jabez 4 , with his brothers Nathan 4 and Jesse 4 , early 
settled. Their grandfather Thomas 2 was the 7th son and 10th child 
of George 1 Abbot the original ancestor in Andover, Mass., and Han- 
nah Chandler, his wife. {See I.)

THE BAMFORD FAMILY. 

1. "Widow Bam ford" is reported to have been among the resi- 
dents of town as early as 1768. Her husband is thought to have been 
Jacob 1 Bamford, and he probably d. before his famil}* settled in Sau- 
bornton, as his name does not appear on the "Petition of 176.S." 
She had located, with her children, near " Little Bay," south of the 
present railroad, and on the south part of the farm still owned by her 
descendant, near the depot at East Tilton, Lot No. 58, 2d Div. On 
coming to town the}* took possession of a log-house or hut, some fif- 
teen feet square, which had previously been erected by a temporary 
fishing settler, and is claimed by some as the first dwelling built within 
the confines of Saubornton. Mrs. Bamford had but two children, and 
before the}* were hardly of a suitable age to care for themselves, she

ton ; was the 4th child and 3d son of Carter 3 , who m., 1st, Huldah 
Moulton; m., 2d, Hannah Lane; was a sea-captain, and d. at sea. 
He (Carter 3 ) was the 10th child and 4th son of Samuel 2 , whose father 
was Nathaniel 1 . The parentage of the latter is not satisfactorily deter- 
mined ; has been Iry different persons called the son, nephew, and 
grandson of Rev. Stephen Bachiler, first pastor of Hampton, and this 
last is the more common tradition in that town ; yet this is not certain, 
as the Rev. Stephen was an elderly man on coming to this country ; is 
not known to have had any sons here (see Sanborn family), and 
returned to England in 1656 or '57, where he d., at the age of 100. 
Another supposition makes "John Batchellor," of Salem, Mass., the 
common ancestor of the Sanbornton families. He came from Dor- 
setshire, Eng., "adm. to the church" in Salem, "June 23, 1639"; 
"freeman, 1640"; " d. 1646." "His descendants write Batchel- 
der." William 4 [1] m. Mary Burley, of Stratham, dau. of David (see) ;

study of theology Tvith Rev. Jonathan French, of Amlover, Mass., and 
received approbation to preach from the Westford Association, at 
Stoneham, April 30, 1*06. Esq. Josiah Emery was sent by the town 
toAndover, seventy miles, on horseback, to confer with him and invite 
him to preach as a candidate, which he did for three months, deliver- 
ing twenty-three discourses, and two very pungent ones, Aug. 24, 
1800, from the text, Isa i. 3, 1. c. (For the action of the town, see 
Ecclesiastical Hist.) He was ordained Nov. 13, 1806, Dr. McFarland, 
of Concord, preaching the sermon, from Titus ii. 11. ''His ministry 
-was faithful and earnest in no common degree. He presented habit- 
ually, as though he believed them with all his heart, the great funda- 
mental doctrines, — ruin, redemption, and regeneration." After a 
season of deep and prayerful anxiety for his people, in 1816, the Spirit 
-was poured from on high ; the whole parish was shaken, and more 
than one hundred were hopefully converted to Christ, many of whom 
were fathers and mothers, among the most respectable and influential 
members of the congregation. Other seasons of special awakening 
were enjoyed, hut none comparable to this. During the forty-six 
years of his ministry, 307 were received into the church, and there 
were 484 baptisms, mostty of children. He was eminent^ - a peace- 
maker, " combining the utmost meekness of spirit and forbearance of 
demeanor with a declared decision and firmness of principle " He 
took an early stand on the temperance question, seconded by his 
excellent wife ; " was at once a most unworldly man and an excellent 
financier." AVas ever bound to his colaborer, Rev. Mr. Crockett, of 
the 1st Baptist Church, " by a beautiful friendship, based on a mutual 
and high respect, and a warm affection." He was dismissed by the 
same council that installed his successor, the Rev. James Boutwell, 
June 24, 1852, and ever afterward proved a good parishioner, a faith- 
ful teacher in the Sabbath school, and an occasional aid to his pastor, 
in the pulpit, while his strength continued. On the fiftieth anniver- 
sary of his settlement he preached a half-century sermon, but it was 
not published till after his death, which occurred March 24, 1863, 
" when his 86th year was nearly completed, after a brief illness of only 
one week, passed in a peaceful and steadfast reliance on Christ." At 
least two of his discourses were published, besides the above. 1. U A 
Sermon delivered at the Request of the Female Cent Societ}-, Dec. 23, 
1812," from Mark xiv. 7, 1. c. 2. " The Sovereignty of God, a Ser-

The friendship and advice of Hev Mr. Gibbs, the esteemed pastor 
at the former place, who was a native of England, induced him to 
repair thither to prosecute his theological studies, which he did, in

was ordained pastor of the Independent Church, Weymouth, Dorset- 
shire, April 3, 1839 ; dismissed, 1845 ; installed, at Bury St. Ed-

back base of the head, at Southwest Harbor, Mt. Desert Island, 
Me , July 17, 1876, and was buried here, on the 21st, in the same lot 
with his parents in the old cemetery. No native of the town has risen 
higher in distinction and usefulness abroad, while none retained a more 
ardent affection for the town itself, or was more ready to labor for the 
benefit of its citizens, who were gladdened, for a short time, by the 
prospect of his spending the remainder of his life among them had it 
been prolonged. 

Dr. Bodwell, who received his degree of S. T. D. from his Alma 
Mater in 1864, possessed " a high order of natural gifts, and a broad 
and generous culture." " English literature was a study and a delight 
to him ; and few men understood and exercised better the forces and 
the graces of our language, whether written or spoken." 

" From his early English training for the ministry- and its exercise 
there for the first fourteen years, he acquired the off-hand, semi-me- 
moriter style of the English pulpit. In this he had peculiar success, 
and was, withal, very successful in training his ministerial pupils to 
this model." " He was above all artifice or professional manoeuvre, 
trusting to the truth, plainly given, and to the Spirit of God ; and as 
indorsing this policy, the churches to which he ministered will always 
cany distinct marks of growth and of fruit for the years lie was with 
them." "He had a keen sense of the apt and beautiful in the expres- 
sion of thought, and many of his sermons will long be remembered as 
admirable specimens of the best English." Several of them were pub- 
lished, though a sensitiveness, now much regretted, kept man} 1 others 
from the press. Among those printed are " A Pastor's Farewell to 
his Flock," preached in the 1st Congregational Church, Woburn, 
Aug. 5, 1866, and "The Preachers demanded in Our Day, and how 
to secure Them," an inaugural discourse, as Professor at Hartford, 
the same year ; but his native town and church were brought under 
peculiar obligations to him for the admirable " Historical Address" 
delivered at the centennial celebration of the Sanbornton Congrega- 
tional Church, Nov. 13, 1871. He was one of the founders of the 
" American Theological Review," and one of the four original propri- 
etors and editors of the "Boston Congregational Review." many of 
the pages of which, for its first five years, were from his own pen. 
His lectures on Eno-lish life, delivered at Dartmouth College and else- 
where, soon after returning from England, and on educational and 
other topics, scattered through years, placed him among our most 
instructive popular lecturers. As a pastor he excelled, especially 
amid the " reverses " of his people, and " in the chambers of the sick 
and of the dead." He will always stand out in the memory of those 
"who knew him " as a fair specimen of the noble, liberal, Christian

fast. " His home," as in Framingham, VVoburn, and Hartford, in all 
of which places he built elegant houses, " was simply an outgrowth of 
himself, — open, genial, and hospitable." He was m. to Catharine

under the pastorate of Rev. Milton Badger, a sermon of Dr Lyman 
Beecher's, on the sovereignty of God, being especially instrumental in 
bringing him into the light and liberty of the gospel. He graduated 
at Dartmouth College, in 1836, ranking well as a scholar, and at the 
Andover Theological Seminary, in 1840, having spent one year teach- 
ing, in the mean time, at Dunkirk, N. Y. Was m. April 10, 1837, to 
Mary P., dau. of Dea. Paschal Abbott (.see "Abbott Families"). His 
first" settlement was at Brentwood, from Nov. 4, 1841, till May 12, 
1852, when he repaired immediately to Sanbornton, and commenced 
his labors on the following Sabbath. Installed June 24, 1852. An 
ardent attachment grew up between him and the people, which con- 
tinued unabated till severed by his death, April 21, 1865, in his 51st 
year, after months of prostration and suffering. " Our pastor," and 
" I shall rise again," are upon his tombstone. He was a sound theo- 
logian, — dwelling with much love and earnestness upon the doctrines 
of grace, — an unusually attractive preacher, and an ardent patriot. 
"The banner of the cross was first in his esteem, and next the stars 
and stripes." Sixty members were added to the church during his 
ministry. His last most deeply affecting interview with his people was 
at Communion, on the first Sabbath of March, 1865, soon after a 
"wonderful revelation of the Divine Redeemer" to him on that morn- 
ing, after which he was '* wholly weaned from earth " and all its anx- 
ieties, so that, to the closing hour of life, his "peace was as a river." 
Mrs. B. was a woman of rare intelligence, amiability, and excellence 
of character, a model pastor's wife, and, though afflicted with almost 
total blindness during her last years, she ever seemed cheerful and 
resigned. She followed her lamented husband Sept. 9, 1868, ae. 
54 — 3. Their Sanbornton home was the old Conner place, near the 
Square. Children :

THE BUNKER FAMILY. 

1. Valentine Estabrooks Bunker was the son of Nathaniel and 
Ednah (Woodward) Bunker, of New London, and there b., on the 
original Colin - place, Feb. 13, 1811. His grandfather, Benjamin 
Bunker, was a native of Barnstead, earl}* emigrated to Lee, and 
thence, for his final settlement, to New London. (The family is 
probably descended from George Bunker, of Charlestown, Mass., free- 
man, 1634, d. 1658, whose son, Benjamin, graduated at Harvard Col- 
lege, 1658; was minister in Maiden, Mass., and d. Feb. 3, 1670.) 
He [1] received his education at the old New Hampton Institute; 
taught school in Orange, in 1837; there commenced to preach ; was 
ordained (June 20, 1838), and continued as a preacher less than two 
years. Moving to Ohio, he gathered a Baptist church, and helped 
build a meeting-house at Mechanicsburg, laboring in and near that 
place six 3'ears ; then at Big Darby (Madison and Franklin Counties), 
two years ; West Jefferson, Clark Co , as a home missionaiy, two 
years; and at Quincy, O., five years. He returned to New Hamp- 
shire in 1857, and having supplied the Union Church at Wilmot one 
year, and officiated, as pastor, at Sutton five years, he commenced his 
labors with the 3d Baptist Church of this town (Pine Hill) in 1865, 
continued till 1870, and resumed them in 1875, as the present pastor 
(1880), having meanwhile been settled over the 2d (Bay) Baptist 
Church, 1870-73, and at Enosburg, Vt., for two and a half years. In 
nearly all these numerous fields Mr. Bunker has been blessed with 
revivals of religion, some of them of great power; he has baptized 
about 150 individuals on the profession of their faith. 

He was m., 1st, to Sabrina R. Davis, of Sutton, in New London, b}* 
Rev. Reuben Saw3'er, April 24, 1838. She was the daughter of Eze- 
kiel and Ednah Davis, b. Feb. 11, 1811, and d. May 3, 1867, at

and is most common now among the descendants in town, though 
Burleigh is claimed by some as the more ancient, and is far more gen- 
erally in vogue in other places. (Burghley, the " castle on the moor," 
prevailed before Queen Elizabeth's day.) The race, as a whole, 
has been distinguished for solid physical as well as superior mental 
endowments. It might, indeed, be styled, by a yet briefer spelling, 
the Burl)/ race, as four brothers, named below [15, 16, 19, 21], 
i. e., Joseph, Nathaniel, David, and Daniel, were weighed on one 
occasion together, giving the goodly aggregate of 900 pounds! 

1. Giles 1 Bckley and Elizabeth, his wife, were the earliest ances- 
tors of the Sanbornton families of this name in the countrv, being 
inhabitants of Ipswich, Mass., in 1648 (see Burle}- Genealogy). Their 
second son : 

2. James 2 , b. Feb. 10, 1659, d. in Exeter, about 1721. 

3. Joseph 3 , second son of the last, b. April 6, 1695 ; removed to 
New Market with an ancestor of the Hersey family (see), being 
attracted by the oak and ash timber, and there d., his estate being 
administered March. 1761. His children, b. in New Market and con- 
nected with Sanbornton, were these : 

4. Joseph [8], who must have been considerably the oldest, though not 
in town so early as his brothers. 

5. G. Nathaniel [13]. David [23]. 

7. Susannah, who accompanied her brother [13] to this town, and d. 
Nov. 1G, 1823. 

Besides these four were: 

7:J. Jemima, who m. James Hersey (see), and perhaps a third dau. 

74. Alice, whose Bible, received from her father, is now shown. 

8. Joseph 4 [4] (Joseph 3 , James 2 , Giles 1 ), settled and made the 
first improvement on the north end of Lot No. 36, 1st Div., directly

11. Stevens, b. Dec. 25, 1755, in New Market; settled with his father till 
the latter's death ; then moved to Gilford He seems, in fact, to have preceded 
his father into Sanbornton, as his name appears upon the " Association Tesl " 
of 177G as Stephens Burley, while his father Joseph's does not. He was also 
a Sanbornton soldier in the Revolution, enlisting- for eight months, May 8, 
1777, which must have included the Bennington battle and Burgoyne cam- 
paign. He was m., by Rev. Mr. Woodman, to Abigail Taylor, of Gilmautou, 
Sept. 3, 1788, and of his eleven children, the oldest: — 1. Abigail, was b. in 
this town. Dec. 3, 1789; m. Ezekiel Robinson, Jane 30, 1812, and d. June 26,

(According to Charles Burleigh's Genealogy of the family, there were two 
other children of [8]; Comfort, who m. John Taylor, and another dau., 
who m. Palmer; but doubtful, see [27].) 

13. Nathaniel 4 [5] (Joseph 3 , James 9 , Giles 1 ) , having m. Sarah 
Powell, settled, first, in New Market ; was then for a few years in 
Canterbury, and came thence to this town in April of the third year 
after the first settlement, i. e., 17G7, as reckoned Ivy the age of his oldest 
son. They crossed the river at the Bridge, then covered with birch 
poles, a little east of the present Hill's Block. The mother rode horse- 
back with her two youngest children, one and a half bushels of meal, 
and the barnyard poultry, slung over their horse's back, in a straw 
bed-tick, saddle-bag fashion, with u breathing holes for the birds," out 
of which their heads protruded ! while the father, with the two oldest 
boys, seven and six years of age, drove the two cows on foot ! In this 
style they presented themselves at a small log-cabin, previously built 
in what is now Mrs. Daniel Davis's orchard, southeast corner of Lot 
No. 35, 1st Div. The husband helped his wife to dismount, swung 
open the bark door, and politely said, "Walk in, ma'am"! The 
good lady both laughed and cried. Mr. Burley was a carpenter and 
joiner, having learned his trade in Chester. It is said that he received 
the fifty acres on which he located from the proprietors as the first 
hou-e carpenter in town, but there is no documentary evidence of 
this. (Se-i Lots.) He was obliged to go down-country the first two 
years to work for the means of subsistence, at one time bringing coin 
meal home on his back from Deerfield, a distance of forty miles. 
The cows meantime ran in the woods, and hay was gathered from the

He was thus early deprived of the privileges of an education, and 
never went to school ; but afterwards, putting himself for two winters

THE CALL FAMILY. 

Though residing mostly in that part of Andover which is now Frank- 
lin, this family has been numerously connected with Sanbornton fam- 
ilies, as seen below. The three (four) following brothers and two 
sisters comprise, so far as known, the original stock. Their father 
was probably Philip, an early settler of Salisbury, 1750. His wife 
was there murdered by the Indians.

does not appear among the Sanbornton soldiers.

THE CALLEY, OR CAWLEY, FAMILIES. —Three Branches. 

I. 

The orthography of this name is divided. Our oldest records in 
Sanbornton favor " Cawley," though "Galley" now more generally 
prevails, and some insist that this is the primitive way of spelling. Of 
the numerous families in this town, we give, first, in genealogical 
order, the three ancestors who are known to have been brothers, and 
the sons of: 

1. Thomas, and Mary, his wife. The records of Epping have 
been searched in vain for fuller ancestral notes upon this and other 
families who came thence to this town. We only know that this is 
the parentage of the three brothers from the fact that after the birth 
of [3], the only Calle}' given, he is called the son of Thomas and 
Mary, as above, the known parents of [2], while also [3] and [4] are 
acknowledged brothers. Hence three of their sons (see also Ad- 
denda) were : 

2. Thomas, Jr. [5]. 

3. Jonathan [7], b. May 19, 1756. (Epping record says 1757.) 

4. Josiah [14], b. about 1758, in E., probably. 

5 Thomas 2 , Jr. [2] (Thomas 1 ). We are only informed of him 
that he lived in Epping (though he probably came to S. and here d., 
April 12, 1 810), and was the father of 

6. Richard [20], b. Sept. 5, 1773, in E. 

7. Jonathan 2 [3] (Thomas 1 ), m. Elizabeth Coal (Betsey Cole), 
Aug. 15, 1781, probably in Epping, and moved thence (one account 
says from Exeter) about that time to this town ; was the first settler 
on the farm lately owned by his son, Dea. Jonathan [36], north end 
of Lot No. 31, 2d Div., near the Cawley Pond, which received from 
him its name. He d. Jan. 18, 1840, ae. 83—8. She was b. March 
13, 1755, d. Aug. 2, 1845, ae. 90— 5. Children (t. r.): 

8. 9. James [29], b. Feb. 17, 1782. Benjamin [32], b. Jan. 5, 178;..

is well remembered as the stentorian crier of marriages at the 1st 
Baptist meeting-house. He was a man of sound judgment, and cool 
and deliberate in its exercise ; persevering, but calm, in scenes of 
danger ; of a cheerful and equable temperament ; skilful and popular

ical Society, of which body he was ever a faithful and approved mem- 
ber, whose seat, at its meetings, was seldom found vacated.

earnestly advocated Peruvian bark several years in advance of other 
physicians. He was a horticulturist, and first introduced the " San-

1. James Cate (or Cates) was b. about 1728, and came from 
Epping, though all our attempts to trace his ancestiy in that town have 
failed. He had moved hither prior to Jan., 1768 (see "Petition"

in what is now Franklin, Lot No. 69. 2d Div., the late Wyatt place,

well was planted by him. His name is also first upon the list of 
eight original members of the Congregational Church, though he could 
not then have been over 43 years of age. No descendants of his name 
were found left within the original limits of Sanbornton in 1876, yet 
more of his descendants bearing other names than of any other 
original member of the church, listened, as members of the congrega- 
tion, to a church historical discourse that }-ear delivered. He was an 
energetic and good man, very attentive to all his religious duties, so 
long as physically able, and retaining his rational faculties to the last. 
Of unusual intelligence among the laymen of his day, he was a prolific 
rhymer, especially in the style of elegy (see Specimens of Sanborn- 
ton Poetry). He was moved by his grandson, Abijah Sanborn, to 
the home of his dau. [4], where the last twelve 3 r ears of his life were

THE CHAPMAN FAMILIES. 

Four distinct heads of families bearing this name are found in San- 
bornton, between most of whom, as yet, no connection can be estab- 
lished. The absence of records in some of these families, and of 
information respecting others, will leave their history meagre and 
unsatisfactory. 

Three Branches. — I.

21. Moses 2 [4] (Nathaniel 1 ), m. Abigail Leavitt, dau. of Moses 
(see), Jan., 180o(?),and first settled near her father's, northwest 
corner of Lot No. 3, 1st Div., Site 1. He named his oldest child 
Nathan Smith (see Smith Families), after the man whom he highly 
esteemed ; and his conversion and first impulse towards the ministry 
were occasioned by the loss of that child. The place is still shown, 
in pasture back of his old house site, where he consecrated himself to 
God. Such were his gifts after this, that he was advised by Capt. 
Folsom, of whom he learned the joiner's trade, and bj- others, to 
preach. Left his family, and went to Gilmanton Academy. Preached 
his first sermon on a large rock, on the Batchelder farm, and was the 
first to occupy the original Ba} T meeting-house. He soon after rem. to 
New Durham, and was associated with Rev. B. Randall, the founder 
of th ;: Free Will Baptist denomination. While there, two years, 
1809-11, he preached frequently in this town, near his former home, 
especially during a revival, which culminated from his last sermons, 
before moving away. On one of these occasions, having arrived from 
N. D., he proceeded up the aisle, singing, with singular effect, a hymn 
which he had composed on the way, a large audience being in readi- 
ness for him. First lines : 

" Dear brethren, we have met again, 
To preach and pray and sing." 
Second stanza : 

" Since I was here, how have you done ? 
How have you walked ? or have you run ? 

Or like the eagle flew ? 
Or have you fell in Despotid's slough ? 
Then lck to Him who sees you now, 
To frame your minds anew." 

There were four six line stanzas. They were first procured by Elias 
Smith, who had them printed, and the}- afterwards appeared, with 
alterations, in several editions of the Free "Will Baptist Conference 
Hymn-Book. Another hymn of his, entitled k ' The Old Hemlock." 
devoutly celebrates a tree which shielded (prevented) another from 
falling on him, when a little boy, being with his father, who was fell- 
ing trees in the woods. He finally returned to Sanbornton Baj-, where 
the late Boynton house was built for him, and he remained as pas-

Meredith (Tease neighborhood), and in Brentwood, preaching contin- 
ually. In June. 1824, he rem to Derby, Vt., and took a farm. I nit

THE CLARK FAMILIES. — Four Branches. —I. 

1. John 1 Clark, the earliest known ancestor of most of the San- 
bornton Clarks, was b. in Haverhill, Mass. His father was a ship-car- 
penter, in H., and an observation of his, respecting ship building, is 
said to have been handed down for more than 200 years, " that there 
would be but few more vessels built in Haverhill, for the want of tim- 
ber," it being; then thought that no timber cou'd be used but 1 ' such 
sticks as filled the moulds," without splicing or cutting across the 

grain, as they did in after years. A sister of his [1] m. Mudget, 

and lived in Rye. The names of neither of his two wives are now 
known. He resided in Stratham, on the farm where his grandson Ben- 
jamin Clark [21] was living in 1826, and there d. His name, " John," 
is found in four or five successive generations of his descendants, and 
" seven John Clarks " are said to have been known in Sanbornton

atone time ! Another tradition says the " family originated from Mar- 
tha's Vineyard, Mass." The name is very common, some twenty- live 
"original ancestors" being found in Savage, prior to 1700. It is 
equally honorable. One hundred and four persons of that name had 
graduated from the New England colleges, and Union and Princeton 
in 1826, and twenty-eight had become ministers of the gospel. The 
final " e" is usually omitted. Children of [1] : 

2, 3. John [11]. Satchel, lived in Stratham. 

4. Nicholas (2d wife), lived in Raymond, but returned to Stratham.

11. John 2 [2] (John 1 ); but little is known of him; may have 
lived for a time in Kingston, but latterly in Stratham, as a deed of his 
son Satchel's [27], who moved to this town, bearing date Jan. 11, 
1759, conveys to William Loverin, of Kingston, " two thirds the right 
of my honored father, John Clark, late deceased, in Stratham." Of 
his children : 

12. Satchel (Sachwell) [27], was b. March, 173G, in Kingston. 

13. Jacob, m. Wiggin, in Eppiug (whom "he stole from a chamber 

window"), and was one of the early settlers of Wakefield. His son was:

have owned " two 200-acre lots in Sanbornton," which were doubtless

marriage, he built a house and carpenter's shop, near Cross's Mills, 
and there lived till 1834, when he sold ; went to res. with the Canter- 
buiy Shakers for one year, and left with them his only surviving son, 
who has since become a leading member of their society. He " never 
attended school a day in his life" ; h nee could neither read nor make 
figures, but measured lumber b}^ a rule taught him by his cousin, Esq. 
James [114], and could carry any number, even to 100,000 feet, accu- 
rately in his head ! He was of stalwart frame, six feet two inches, 
weighing 240 pounds; had also, naturally, a great intellect; "was 
built for a philosopher." One of his first pieces of important busi- 
ness, after getting his trade as a framer, was the framing of the upper 
portion of the State Capitol, at Concord, in 1817, the mechanic who did 
the lower framework " not venturing to do the upper" ! But dam build- 
ing chiefly occupied him through life. Like his brother Joseph [43], 
with great mechanical genius, he was much given to studying hydraulic 
science and art. In 1823, being called to Boston to superintend the 
erection of a tide-water dam, he received, on returning, the title of 
" Boston John," to distinguish him from " six other John Clarks" in 
Sanbornton. The original dam at Walter Aiken's factoiy, in Frank- 
lin (built 1818), that at Bristol, on the Pemigewasset, the Amsden 
dam at Fisherville, Sewall's Falls dam, and the great dam, which 
finally stood at Lawrence, Mass., are among the monuments of his 
genius and oversight. No man u could so easity and surely as he 
conquer an ugly spot of water-power." He d. in the house where m.,

shire State Senate in 1836, having previously been clerk of the House 
of Representatives; was also register of probate for Merrimack Co., 
1839-43. For a whole generation he was well known, not only in the 
vicinity of his home, but all over the State, for his general intelli- 
gence, and his readiness to communicate of his stores of information 
both in matters pertaining to his own business, and on more general, 
practical, and scientific questions. He was especially versed in the 
local history of this part of our State ; became an acknowledged 
authority, and drew up several papers and interesting statements 
respecting the archaeology and Indian history of the Winnipiseogee 
Valley, and on other kindred topics, some of which were published,

THE CLEMENT FAMILIES. 

Gregory Clement was "freeman" in Watertown, Mass., in 1634, 
and another of the name appears at Dorchester, 1639. No less than 
fourteen others were in different parts of New England before 1700, 
whose connection, if existing in an}' cases, cannot be ascertained. 
From which of these " original ancestors " the Sanbornton Clements 
were descended is uncertain.

THE COLBY FAMILIES. 

At least three distinct branches of Colby families appear in the 
early history of Sanborn ton, two of which are known to have been 
connected. They may have descended from Anthony Colby, who, 
according to Savage, was in Cambridge, Mass., 1632 ; freeman, 1634 ; 
moved to Salishmy, and d. 1663, leaving eight children, — Samuel, 
rep. from Amesbury, 1689, being probably of this family; or, as 
tradition here informs us, they may have sprung from one or more of 
the "three brothers,"^ William, Isaac, and Philip, who are thought to 
have "emigrated from the North of England between 1675 and 1750." 

Three Branches. — I. 

The earliest ancestor of several who came to this town, as the 
writer has learned by consulting the Haverhill (Mass.) records, was

two suppositions just named, who m , 1st, Mary Currier, Oct. 23,

THE CRITCHETT FAMILY. 

1. Thomas Critchett seems to have been the unique character 
among the early settlers of town, of whom various laughable accounts 
were given. Of his origin and pedigree nothing is known. He was 
not here, in all probability, during the winter of 17G8, and yet was 
fairly established as the owner of land, in Lot No. 26, 1st Div., in 
July, 1770, when the first road was returned! His house on that lot 
was at Site 1, some 60 rods back from the Bay at the old Copp place. 

He m. Towle, from Meredith; afterwards lived opposite the 

present John Perkins', Site 1, Lot No. 51, 1st Div., being therein 
1795. He, at least, rem. to Canada, and there d. She d. with her

3. Hannah, m. Josiah Avery, Jr., of Gilmauton, May 23, 1793 (Woodman), 
and went to Wheelock, Vt. 

4. Lydia, b. 1774; m. Henry Smith (see). 

5. John, was killed on board the " Chesapeake," at its capture by the 
British, June, 1813, ae. 24 (?). 

THE CROCKETT FAMILY. 

The earliest mention of the family name in New England is in Sav- 
age's General Dictionary, Vol. I., page 475 : "Thomas Crockett, of 
Kittery, 1648," and of " York, 1652," being the same, doubtless, as 
the Thomas Crockitt, who is said, in letter of Ambrose Gibbens, July 
13, 1633, to have been one of the four men who were then with him, 
in the infant colony of " Newichwanicke " (Salmon Falls). — See 
Belknap's History, Farmer's Ed., page 425. 

Tradition, in the Sanbornton family, informs us that another brother 
settled early in Virginia, from whom may be derived those bearing the 
name of the same spelling, in different histories of Tennessee and 

Kentucky.

from about 1802 till 1809, having received his academical education at Gilman 
ton Academy, commenced the study of medicine with Dr. Benjamin Kelley, o 
Gilniauton, 1800, and completed his studies with Dr. Samuel Morrill, then of 
Epsom. He first boarded with his brother on coming to town ; m. Betsey 
(Elizabeth) Dexter, of Maiden, Mass., May, 1806, and lived on the opposite 
corner (see Sites, house moved to the present Mr. Hackett's). After practis- 
ing medicine six or seven years, he exchanged the profession for that of the 
ministry. In 1816 he moved to Grafton, and was ordained over the Baptist 
Church in that place; afterwards rem. to Danbury, where he d. June 10, 1842, 
ae. GS. He was a member of the N. H. Legislature two years. Had six chil-

one, the only son, d. young. (The above list of John Crockett, Sen.'s, children 
was found in a " Genealogy of Samuel Lane," Chas. H. Clark, Esq., Franklin.) 

9. John- [3] (John 1 ), m., 1st, Betsey Jenness, Dec. 11, 1788, 
who was b. Jan. 9, 1763, and d., of consumption, June 9, 1818, ae. 
55 — 5. He was originally a shoemaker, and the old ledger in which 
his accounts were kept and balanced with great accuracy contains the 
following interesting items in his own handwriting : " John Crockett, 
Jun., and wife, moved home to Northwood, Feb. 14,- 1789 ; lived 
there till Jan. 14, 1794 ; then moved to Sanbornton, and engaged for 
one year in the work of the ministry to the Baptist Church of Christ." 
"I was ordained Sept. 3, 1794, in the 29th year of my age, in the 
'3d year of my pilgrimage" (alluding to his life after conversion). 
From a printed sketch of the 1st Baptist Church, written by himself a 
year or two before his death, we further learn that the April before his 
removal he first received a letter from the church requesting him to 
visit them ami preach the last Lord's day in the same month. (The 
church in Northwood, to which he belonged, had given him a license 
to preach the gospel in 17!)2 ) " I came at their request, and preached 
my first sermon from Isaiali xxxii. 20, l Thine eyes shall see Jerusalem 
a quiet habitation.'" This relation, thus happily formed, was not dis- 
solved until it pleased the great Head of the Church to call his ser- 
vant home !

GENEALOGIES. — CROCKETT. 191 

Mr. Crockett was known extensively, and was happy in extending 
his usefulness as far as his acquaintance. Many now rise up and call 
him blessed (183:3), not only in the town in which he was sell led. but 
in all the surrounding region. He was a man that took a very active 
part in the operations of all public bodies of a religious character. 
For a number of years he acted as moderator in the meetings 
of the Meredith Association, and was frequently called to preside in 
councils and ecclesiastical bodies. He was not a man of public edu- 
cation, but he knew how to prize an education, and was very active in 
aiding whatever promoted this object. For a long time previous to 
his death, he was a member of the board of overseers in the New 
Hampton Institution, and a trustee of the Woodman Sanbornton 
Academv, to both of which institutions he contributed liberalby of his 
substance. He was a beloved and useful pastor; genial and social, 
sympathetic, and frequent in his visits among his own people, and in 
his intercourse with other denominations, kind and prudent. He led 
the church successfully through man}* seasons of trial, but also of 
o-reat revival interest, baptizing more than three hundred and forty, 
who were added to the church during his ministry. He officiated at 
bv far a greater number of funerals and marriages (as the t r. show) 
than any other clergyman in this town. 

About two years before his death, he was much injured in conse- 
quence of his horse taking fright, on which he was riding. He recov- 
ered from this injury, however, so far as to be able to attend to his 
customary pastoral duties until the 1st of June, 1832. During the 
week before its first Sabbath, he preached a funeral sermon, and on 
Friday attended the church meeting preparatory to communion. His 
" last text," as his gravestone informs us, was Rev. xxi. 7, " He that 
overcometh, shall inherit all things " ; after discoursing from which, 
he administered the Lord's Supper to the church for the last time, 
beinc the two hundred and twentieth that he had enjoyed that privilege 
with the people of his charge. He was immediately attacked with a 
disease which baffled all medical aid, depriving him a part of the time 
of the use of his reason, yet leaving him opportunity, in his lucid 
moments, to show that his faith in the Saviour remained unfaltering, 
and that the gospel which he had preached to others was his support 
in the last conflict. Just before his death, he gave directions respect- 
ing his funeral services, and sweetly fell asleep in Jesus, Feb. 6, 1833, 
in the G7th year of his age, and the forty-first of his ministry. The 
Rev. "William Taylor preached his funeral sermon from 2 Tim. iv. 
7, 8. He was first publicly mentioned in David Benedict's " General 
History of the Baptist Denomination," Boston, 1813, p. 500. His 
home iu this town was ever, .after the first year or two, at the Corner,

father, Dec, 1832." He was a pillar in the 1st Bap ist Church (over which 
his father was settled) till his death, Feb. 6, 18G9, of congestion of the lungs, 
in his 78th year; was accustomed always to hold a meeting on the Sabbath in 
his beloved house of worship, of which he had the care, even in the absence 
of a minister; and when no person but himself was present, at the appointed 
hour he would faithfully go through a short service from the well-worn Bible, 
which he always carried to the house of God, and sing and pray. His loss to 
the society was irreparable. No children. " Wearied under the pressure of 
the infirmities of old age, he longed to be absent from the body to be present 
with the Lord. His wish is realized, and his happy soul has not one hope 
unanswered." (Gravestone.)

Representatives, Massachusetts Legislature, 1847-48, and a senator 
from the county of Suffolk, 1849-50. In the latter year, he was

was elected a member of the convention for revising the Constitution 
of Massachusetts, from the city of Boston, in 1853 ; was first presi- 
dent of the Bank of North America at its incorporation in 1850, and

parents and friends for the present life, but calling forth a beautiful volume of 
"Reminiscences," pp. 106 (Tickuor & Fields, 1856). "His very name was 
appropriate, foreshadowing, as it were, the disposition of his life; for, like 
Samuel of old, his spirit was, 'Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth'; and, 
like the gifted Heber, he had devoted himself to the noble task of carrying the 
gospel to distant lands."

time having direction of the music. The favorite time, " Mt. Vernon," was 
composed by Mr. M., as a tribute to her memory, and the poetry by Rev. S. F. 
Smith, of Newton Theological Seminary. 

" Sister, thou wast mild and lovely, 
Geiitle as the summer breeze, 
Pleasant as the air of evening, 

When it floats among the trees. 
Peaceful be thy silent slumber, 
Peaceful in the grave so low, 
Thou no more wilt join our number, 
Thou no more our songs shalt know."

1637. Jonathan was in Billerica, 1653. From him, or one of his 
brothers, ma} r have been descended 

5. Mos!<s [7], and 

6. Thomas (probably brothers), both of whom were among the 
first actual settlers in Sanbornton in 1761, and here passed the follow- 
ing winter, as their Petition to the Proprietors for aid, in view of 
their present sufferings from lack of provisions, was duly considered 
by the Proprietors in March, 1765 (.see Gen. History). These two 
"Danfords" are named first in official notice of the above Petition ; 
but before the Petition of Jan., 1768, Thomas seems to have returned, 
as then the name of Moses ("' Danforth") only appears. 

7. Mosks [5] had in. Molly Flood, and settled on Lot No. 80, 2d 
Div. (Site 1), on the Plains near the present Bay Road and the Dan- 
forth Brook. Their log-house, among the original Danforth apple-

24 years after, at the death of his wife, his remains were disinterred 
for reburial, in the Hodgdon cemetery, the ball of which he used to 
complain was found embedded in his collar-bone ! It first " hit the 
guard of his gun " (as he always claimed), while fighting in a Revolu- 
tionary battle, and hence was found "grazed, flattened, and nearly 
half worn off." She d. Oct. 24, 1854, ae. 88. Children :

THE DANIELL FAMILY. 

As to the spelling of the name, " Daniell " occurs twenty-six 
times in the English '• Encyclopaedia of Heraldry," "Daniel" five 
times, and %k Daniels " once. " There may be families, however, whose 
ancestors brought the name ' Daniels ' from the old country." The 
first orthography has always prevailed in this Franklin family, which 
is of very respectable Puritan origin, finding, as its first ancestor, in 
this country :

lots in Watertown, Mass., previous to 1G36. His 1st wife, Elizabeth,

1G0. Obadiah E. 4 [55] (Elijah 3 , William 2 , etc.), had pursued 
preparatory studies at the Giimanton Academy, and commenced the 
study of medicine in Albany, N. Y., 181(3 ; afterwards read with Drs. 
Sanborn and Hill, in this town ; one year or more with Dr. Muzzey-, 
of Hanover, and took his degree of M. D. from the Medical Depart- 
ment of Brown Universit}' (which had been rem. to Boston), in 1821, 
after a year's course under Prof. Ingalls. Practised at Sanbornton 
Bridge till July 4, 1825, when he rem. to Portland. Me. ; there after- 
wards res'd. in successful business and high esteem, and was still pur- 
suing the duties of his profession in a good old age (1877). A respite 
from his labors being necessary, in 1832 he spent two sessions in the 
Medical College at Charleston, S. C, during that and the following- 
years, receiving much stimulus and encouragement from the master 
spirits of the old schools of Edinburgh, London, and Paris, then gath- 
ered at C. He was a studious man, possessed much originality of 
thought and id*»a, and hence wt excelled in the treatment of diseases 
differing from the usual type." The claim is justly awarded to him of 
having discovered the amesthetic qualities of sulphuric ether, and 
introduced it into his practice, several years in advance of its reputed 
discovery. He was a friend of the poor, genial and courteous in 
social life, a safe adviser and counsellor. He d. in Deering, Me.,

so-called Turkey Bridge. This is claimed as the first grist-mill erected 
in town. Some say he continued but two or three years at his first 
settlement; others, till about 1783, when he removed to his "mill- 
hou.se," not far from the present new school-house in district No. 12. 
There he lived with his family of children and work-hands, numbering, 
in all, twelve persons. The house used to be supported by shores, one 
on each side of the outer door. It contained only two small rooms, 
and one stone chimney, with an oven in the back ! In this house he 
lived for years, with only two iron vessels among his utensils, — a 
pot and a skillet ! yet he afterwards became one of the " wealthy 
men" of town The Dustin farm was the same as that lately owned

is doubtful if any man in the State, of his walk in life, was better 
posted in matters of history or politics. He was a deep thinker ; a

articles attracted the attention and commendation of the best politi- 
cians in the State. He was regarded one of the foremost citizens of 
Bethlehem, winning a host of friends, who showed their high estima- 
tion of his character by their large concourse at his funeral, notwith- 
standing the almost impassable condition of the roads, at which an 
able discourse was preached by Rev. G. L. Demorest, of Manchester.

THE ELKINS FAMILY. 

From ancient Elkins deeds, in possession of Mr. Charles G. Durgin, 
we infer that 

1 . Jonathan 1 , of Hampton, 1701 , ma} r have been an early ancestor 
of the Sanbornton Elkinses ; that two of his sons, 

2, 3. Moses 2 (Dea.) and Obadiah 2 were in Kingston, 1749, and 
that the latter was probably the father of 

4. Peter 3 , who first settled in Kingston, then Hawke, and was 
said to be of that town (Hawke, now Danville), Feb. 15, 1783, when 
he received land, by deed, from Abraham Darling, in Lots 73 and 74, 
2d Div. This establishes the time of his first settlement near Ihe 
Tin Coiner, place of late owned by James Morrison, where he kept a 
store. He was appointed " lieut.-colonel of an Alarm Co." in this

THE EMERY FAMILY. 

The Emerys of this town are descended from 

1. John 1 , who, from Romsey, England, was among the first set- 
tlers of Newbury, Mass., 1635 ; a carpenter; d. Nov. 3, 1683, ae. 85, 
and hence b. in 1598. The line continues : 

2. John 2 , b. 1629, also in England. 

3. 4. John 3 , b. Sept. 12, 1656. John 4 , b. Sept. 29, 1686 ; and 

5. Moses 5 , b. 1715; m. Lydia Emery, dau. of Stephen. Of his 
children two were early identilied with Sanbornton, viz. : 

6, 7. Josiah [8], b. May 17, 1747, G. S., and Michael [17], b. Aug. 1, 1764. 

8. Josiah 6 [6] (Moses 5 , John 4 , John 3 , John 2 , John 1 ), m., 1st, 
Rebecca Woodman, dau. of John, and sister of Rev. Joseph, 1770, who 
d. Jan. 5, 1788, ae. 41 — 6. He m., 2d, Mrs. Elizabeth (Meader) Mor- 
rison, Oct. 13, 1791 (Woodman). She had m., 1st, Woodman; 

m., 2d. Samuel Morrison (near Tin Corner) . As his two oldest children 
are said to have been born in Epping, he probabty made a brief settle- 
ment there, his first on leaving Newbury, and did not reach Sanbornton 
before 1774, though he was here in 1776 to sign the "Association 
Test." He was the first to settle, and always lived on the present 
farm of Rufus Howe, Lot No. 27, 2d Div. ; was an athletic man, and is 
said to have " carried the ring" at wrestling on the day of the raising 
of the first meeting-house. He never owned a wheeled vehicle, only 
a sleigh in winter ; but possessed two saddle horses, and was himself 
an expert rider. At one time he could ride and see at least six of 
his children, all settled in Sanbornton with large families, in a single 
day (now, 1878, on\j one grandchild and one great-grandchild of his 
remain in the original town). He also made the journey on horseback 
to Andover in 1806, to secure the services of Mr. Bodwell. His wife 
was the first woman that ever rode in a wheeled carriage north of the 
old meeting-house. Her father and mother had come to visit their chil- 
dren (Rev. Mr. Woodman and Mrs. E.), had spent Saturday night at 
Mr. W.'s, and on Sunday, after meeting, were about to repair to Mr. 
Emery's, when the mother was afraid to ride with her husband, on 
account of the roughness of the road, and he took in his daughter 
(Mrs. Emery) instead. He was received into the Congregational 
Church, April 9, 1775. His name often appears upon church and 
town committees, and, being justice of the peace, he seems to have

THE GAGE FAMILY 

Is of Norman extraction, deriving its descent from De Gaga, Gauga, 
or Gage, who accompanied William the Conqueror into England, and 
was afterwards rewarded with large grants of land. A line of seven 
generations, from 

1. John Gage, 1408, terminates with 

2. John, Esq., oldest son of Sir Edward, who was knighted by 
Queen Mary. He was 30 years of age at his father's death, and heir 
to fifteen manors in Sussex ; but surviving all his brothers, and leav- 
ing no issue, the estate descended to his nephew, the earliest known 
ancestor in a direct line of the Gages of Sanbornton, viz. :

THE GALE FAMILIES. — Four Branches. — I. 

The earliest ancestors of the Gale family in this country are believed 
to be the three following : — 

1. Abraham, of Watertown, Mass., 1G40 (the son of Richard), 
who m. Sarah Fiske, and " had many children." Also: 

2. Ambrose, of Marblehead, Mass., 1674, and one of the founders 
of the church there, but previously of Salem, where his children were 
baptized, as follows : 

3. 4. Benjamin and Elizabeth, bap. May 17, 1663. 

5, 6. Charity, bap. June 17, 1664. Ambrose, bap. 1665; and finally, 

7. Bartholomew, a shipwright, who came from England to Boston. 
Twelve of the name had graduated from New England colleges in 

1834. Branches II. and III. of the Sanbornton Gales are doubtless 
each descended from one of the above, and so may be this [I.]. 
For, although, 

8. John Gale, the earliest settler of the name in town, alwa} r s 
bore the sobriquet of " Dutchman Gale," and is hence supposed to have 
been of Dutch descent, yet more reliable information has since proved 
that he was not a Dutchman hy race, but merely came from New 
York to Exeter. His father, or earlier progenitor, may, therefore, 
have belonged to one of the afore-mentioned families, and emigrated 
from New England to New York, whence he returned, and married 
Susan McCarty, in Exeter. (Of her father there is the following

romantic legend among her descendants in this vicinity : that he was 
sent from Ireland when a little boy, by his aunt, who wished to secure 
a large property which he was to have inherited. His parents had 
died, and she consigned him to a sea-captain, to be taken to parts un- 
known. He was finally left at Exeter, *' where he had in., and could 
not return," when his aunt, having learned of his destination, repented 
on her death-bed, and sent for him!) He [8] was in town before 
1768 1 (see "Petition"), and by vt Returns of Roads," in 1771-72, 
seems to have been living at first in the southwest part of the town, in 
the vicinit}' of tbe Winnipiseogee and John Clark's, on Lot 09, 2d Div. 
Prior to Aug., 1778, however, he must have located just west of the 
wooded hill in Franklin (New Boston), which has since borne his 
name, Lot No. 67, 1st Div., where he d. March 16, 1802, and she d.

THE GIBSON FAMILY 

Is said to be of English origin, and two brothers, James and John, 
when coming to ibis country, are said to have lost their father on the 
passage. A doubtful legend is also l'elated, that one of these brothers 
from England married the daughter of a nobleman, against the will 
of her parents, and that he was the father of Jeremiah Gibson, an 
early settler of Canterbury. The name appears as " Gipson " on the 
" Petition of 17G8," which was signed by the oldest of the five broth- 
ers, who early gained possession of Lot No. 58, 2d Div., on which 
Union Bridge village now stands, and gave their original name (" Gib- 
son's ") to the falls below the Bridge. Only the two oldest and 
youngest of these brothers can now be traced to any extent. It is 
certain that their father did not settle here, though supposed, at first, 
to have been the "John of 1768." Perhaps he was the "Jeremiah

THE GILMAN FAMILIES. — Five or Six Branches. 

By the aid of Arthur Gilman's " Genealogy" (chiefly of the John 
Gilman family of Exeter), we are enabled to trace most of the San- 
bornton families of this name further back than any other family in 
town. The common ancestor is Edward 1 of Caston, Norfolk, Eng., 
who was there m. to Rose Rysse, June 22, 1550. His will was dated 
Feb. 5, 1573, devising his mansion-house in Caston to his eldest son, 
John, and his other estates to five daughters and three other sons, among 
whom Robert 2 was baptized at Caston, July 10, 1559. His wife 
Mary was there buried March 9, 1618, and he March 6, 1631. But 
he had lived at Hingham, Eng , as his son Edward 3 was there b., 
probably 1587-8; m. Mary Clark, of (at) Hingham, June 3, 1614,

326 HISTORY OF SANBOKNTON. 



THE HARPER FAMILY. 

1. William Harper's name first appears upon the town records as 
" Capt." W. H., chosen "representative 1785," and Wm. H., Esq. 
(as ever after), u constable 1786" He came from Deerfield some 
time previously to the former year, where he had first settled, having 
m. Mar}' Lane, dau. of John 4 , and sister of the Lane brothers who 
settled in this town. Of his parentage nothing is known, save that 
his mother was a Scribner, and that the " old Mr. Harper, who dyed " 
here Aug. 25, 1790, was probably his father. He is presumed to 
have been descended from Joseph Harper, an early resident of Brain- 
tree. Mass. One of his sisters, Anna, b. April 3, 1750, hud m. David 
Bean (see p. 28 [4]) ; another, Elizabeth, m., 1st, a Smith, in Ray- 
mond, or Candia (father of Nathan, in this town) ; m., 2d, Asaliel 
Quimby (see) ; m., 3d, Dea. Ebenozer Colby (see p. 171 [117]) ; and 
in., 4th, Benjamin Robinson, the father of Benjamin, Jr. (Calef Hill). 
He bought out Josiah Sanborn, on the hill above the first meeting- 
house, and became an extensive landholder in other parts of the town. 
He also took a prominent part in all public affairs in town, as 
being its only lawyer, and built one of the finest houses of that 
da} - , now owned by Mr. Chesley, indulging a little rivalry with Mr. 
George C. Ward, which resulted in the third story upon the latter's 
house at the lower end of the village ! 

In 1 788 he was chosen delegate from Sanbornton to the convention 
held in Kxeter and Concord for adopting the new Constitution of the 
United States. Mispicions were entertained that he would oppose it, 
and the friends of the Constitution in town "endeavored, by all the 
powers of persuasion the}' could command, to induce him to change 
his purpose." He contended that "the powers conferred upon the 
general government were too great ; that the abundant patronage con- 
ferred upon some, and the independent tenure of office upon other 
departments, would tend to consolidation, and lead to the exercise of 
tyranny and oppression." It was rumored that Esq. Harper was 
among the four or five members of the convention for whom a strat- 
agem was planned to detain them from the final vote ; but it did not 
succeed in his case, for his vote was among the 47 given tigainst the 
Constitution, though, happily, with 57 in its favor! He was thought 
to be entirely sincere in his convictions, and by his action in this mat- 
ter seems not to have lost his popularity among his fellow-citizens, as 
he was elected sole representative of the town from 1791 to 1800, 
continuously, ami three times moderator of town meeting, 1792-96. 
He d. Dec. 31, 1809 ; his wife had d. June 18, 1806 ; his mother, as 
" Widow Harper," d. in this town, April 6, 1803. Children :

THE HERSEY FAMILY. 

The first ancestor of the Sanbornton Herseys in this country was 
doubtless William, of Hingham, Mass., 1635 ; admitted freeman, 1638, 
and member of the artillery company, 1652. Had a son William ; m., 
1656. Name also written on the Hingham records " Hersie," " Har- 
sie," and " Hearsey." One of this family early moved from Hing- 
ham to that part of Exeter which is now New Market, having first 
explored the country for the purpose of cutting ash and oak timber, as 
he was a carpenter or cooper. He afterwards took up land, and set-

tied there, in company with the father or grandfather of Nathaniel 
Burley (see). His immediate descendant (probably grandson) was: 

1. James 1 Hersey, of New Market, who m. Jemima Burley, a 
sister of Nathaniel and his brothers, who moved to Sanbornton (see 
p. 58 [7-]]). He met with an accident which resulted in the loss of 
his leg, and afterwards of his property, so that he was unable to com- 
plete the education of his sons, as he had commenced with the oldest. 
His children were all b. in New Market, one of whom he followed to 
S., and here cl., April 27, 1804. Children : 

2. James [12], b. Jan. (?), 1746 (?). 

3. Jonathan, b. June(?), 17-17 (?) ; settled in Wolfeborough ; m. 

Fox. Eight sons, two daughters. 

4. Josi.vn [23], b. Nov. 20, 1748. 

5. Jemima, b. 1750 (?) ; m. to John Piper, of Wolfeborough, by Rev. Mr. 
Woodman, Jan. 20, 1783, and settled in W. Six sons, four daughters. 

6. William [30], b. 1752. 

7. Molley, b 1755 (?); m. William Shores, Feb. 25, 1799 (Crockett); 
lived in Sauborntou; but had no children (?). 

8. Peter [40], b. Sept. 7, 1758, O. S. 

9. Jacob, b. 1762 (?); settled where Amos K. Hersey now lives (1880); 
was the first person drowned in Sauborntou Little Bay, at Hersey's Cove, 
Aug. 19, 1790, ae. 34 (see p. 61 [33]). 

10. Elizabeth (Betsey), b. 1764 (?) ; m. Nicholas Giles, Sen., 2d wife (see 
p. 302 [1]). 

11. John, b. 1766 (?) ; began to improve a lot in what is now (1877) 
Charles W. Colby's pasture; was deranged in mind, and relinquished his land 
to his brother James; d., ae. 60 (?). 

12. James 2 [2] (James 1 ), was a survej'or, and was early employed 
by the last provincial governor, John Wentw T orth, to run a line from 
Portsmouth to Quebec, as also to survey the town of Stewartstown, 
N. H. On his way back, he called to visit his uncle Nathaniel Burley, 
and being pleased with the country, he negotiated with the grantees, 
or others, for a large section of land, on several different lots, between 
Burley's (or Calef ) Hill and the Bridge, especially on Lots 55 and 56, 
1st, and 65 and 75, 2d Divs. In this way he "took it up." There 
is some undue embellishment upon this subject in the Merrimack 
Journal of Aug. 22, 1873. The river lots were not then considered 
the most valuable ; and though Esq. Hersey may not have secured his 
right and title to Lot No. 75, 2d Div., or some portion of it, till after 
the Kevolutionaiy war commenced, and though he may have ridden a 
fine horse to Portsmouth, as there Thomas Packer, Esq., Masonian pro- 
prietor of said lot, resided, and though he may " have left the horse as 
the consideration " for a deed of the lot brought back, 3*et it is quite cer- 
tain that Gov. Wentworth had nothing directly to do with this transac- 
tion. It is, however, confidently affirmed by his descendants, that " one 
of the last acts of Gov. Wentworth, when on board a vessel at Ports-

month, and ready to sail for England, on account of his adhesion to 
Tory principles, was to sign a deed from the Crown, to Mr Hersey, 
of land in Sanbornton" ! Also that, as king's surveyor, he laid out 
several of the original towns of the State, and made the first survey 
of Lake Winnipiseogee and its islands previous to the Revolutionary 
Avar, naming many of them, — Bear Island, for instance, " from the 
fact that making its survey in the spring of the year, when the ice was 
thin, a bear was killed while trying to escape " 

He finally settled where now Gideon Piper (1880) lives, near the 
Seminary buildings, in Tilton, and, from his land farther back, sup- 
plied his brothers with homesteads. For many years he was a prom- 
inent man in Sanbornton, as justice of the peace and surveyor, both 
making out deeds and running out lines for the farmers. Legal doc- 
uments are now shown, drawn up by him as late as 1796, with great 
accuracy. He also surveyed a good deal out of town. He was an 
earnest friend of education. He first welcomed Jacob Knapp, the 
" stripling teacher," to town ; and Dudley Leavitt boarded at his house 
while teaching at the Bridge, who also was assisted by Esq. Hersey in 
making out his first almanac! He was in. to Elizabeth, dau. of Wil- 
liam Hayes (see Hayes Earn., p. 330 [6]
